OFFICIAL COUHTY PAPER.
SATURDAY, MAR. 31, IS93. The Sentinel is still the official paper of Yuma county. The Grand Jury at the present term of court was one of the ablest ever organized in Yuiaa county. It was - - o empannelled and sworn in" Mouday examined all the matters brought be fore it and adjourned Wednesday, be ing in session only three days, bein in line of the oconomy marked out by Jude Baker. Sixteen revolutions has the wheel of time made since the Silver Belt of Globe, was launched upon the sea of Arizona journalism, during which it has done yeoman ssrvico for its own section in particular as well as for the Territory at large. Bravo, staunch and -willing does it stand for every interest of all of the people of Arizona. May it always prosper. Hmrv Justice: A. 0. Baker presided at tho present term of the District Court as tho Judge of the Third Judicial District. His charge to the Grand Jury, in regard to econ omy and the reduction of the ex penses of the county was one of the best ever delivered in Yuma. His determination to reduce the court ex penses of the county will be commend ed by every tax payer interested. The prompt manner in which he dis charged the duties of his important office commends itself to every resident of Yuma county. DOWW .EST THE SEA. In a warm and even climate like that of Yuma, one feels the need of a change, if there is none, the tendency is towards becoming like ' the native, easy, slowgoing and lazy. This can not be helped, only as one changes his or her location for a few days, and hie away to the mountains or down by the sea. It is not generally known, that G5 miles from Yuma over a level .plain, over which an electric railroad 'can be quickly and cheaply built, are the finest fishing grounds, clam and oyster beds, hot mineral springs, and bathing places in the world, and yet, it is true. The fishing at the mouth of the river, is unequalled anywhere. The clam beds near Port Isabel, are tho wonder of all who ever saw them. The bathing at Sin Felipe has r,o equal, the turtle, great black sea bass, oysters, soft shell crab, sardines, smelt, and an endless variety of other fish are not excelled, anywhere. The day is not far distant when we shall step aboard of a train, and for $1 and in two hours time, land where we can enjoy the salt-sea air, a bath in the bring deep, all the luxuries of thejdeep, deep sea and the finest sea shore eli minate in the world. A EaOOEi AHEAD. With the building of the railroad from San Diego to Yuma, with the opening up of tho magnificent lands that lie to the west of us, with the improvement of the Colorado river from here to its mouth, so that the coal from the San Marcial mines can "be laid down here at a cost not exceed ing $5 per ton, with our gold and .silver mines properly opened up, and the lands adjacent to Yuma supplied -with water forjivrigation, what may we not expect of the old town situated liere on the Kile of the west. Thus far, we have not referred to our early fruits, in the market, sold and consum ed from four to eight weeks earlier than any other section, to our grand facilities for producing the finest al falfa fed beef and live stock in the world, nor to our all-round the year vegetable productions, nor to our mountains of iron, onyx, marble, zinc and other metals. Yuma is destined to, and will be the largest inland town on the Pacific Coast. The natural advantages are hero, time will open up and devolope them. The age of the old stage coach is gone, that of steam and electricity is here. jaovarse onward. The steps being taken, to build storage reservoirs, along tho Gila, Salt and other rivers in Arizona will in sure a permanent supply of water, up on which the settlers in the fine val leys, which are found in central and eastern Arizona, can always rely. Without these, years may come, when the supply of water would fail, and disaster follow tho best directed efforts, in farming but with them, no failure can follow. An abundance of water flows down every stream in Arizona, if properly stored and kept to irrigate all of the lands adjacent to them. Without such precautious, there are T6i"s, wbep he fmrsner would s tier . Hence it is, that we say, that every project under way, to take up, store and guard the water ' flow in our streams, is to be encouraged and hail ed with delight. When once the many projects now under way, are completed, thousands of acres of land now barren and idle, will be convert ed into fields of grain, orchards, orange and lemon groves, and gardens. Ari zona today, in her reservoir and water storage, projects is taking a grand step onward. WK6TJ3 US'SS. Yuma, perhaps no more than any other town, has suffered from "write ups" given it by strangers, men well enough in .their way, able newspaper men, and all right at home, but not capable, fit or competent to put the facts in regard to the place, its ad vantages and surroundings, its re sources and prospects for the future before the public. Even if they were able to do so, in their respective journals, what does it avail, compared to a carefully prepared and honest statement of facts, published in a local paper. Our own people, the men who have lived here for years, certain ly know what we ha vo, what we are doing and what there is in the future better than any stranger. Instead of paying out hundrods, if not thousands, of dollars to some stranger to write- up what Arizona might have been, if our people would pay the same money to the local press, they would get bet ter service, more facts would be known, their influence would be wider, more good would be done, and Ari zona would bo the gainer. Let our home papers, working for the good of the Territory be assisted in this good work, rather than the tramp. EoteI For Yiiism, Dr. S. P. Owens, of this city, who has been out west for the past three months, thinks well of the climate of Arizona. He thinks a large hotel or sanitarium at Yuma, Arizona, would be a paying investment, and no doubt, will organise a company here to build one there this fall. He is very san- sruine that the climate there is bene ficial to health, and that it would be a good investment to place capital, at least he is willing to be one to under take it. The Monitor has said that Arizona is the Italy of America. Its state ments have been proven by articles in the Sedalia papers, as well as many others who have had correspondents in that territory. Every one speaks well of the Gila and Salt River Valleys of Arizona. Moborly (jVLo.) Monitor. J. H. Henderson, one of the owners of the Sun Rise and Nug get mines at Gila City was a passen ger on Sunday's westbound express for California. This was Mr. H.'s third visit to the mines. He said that" he was well satisfied with the prospects, that the more he saw of the district the more he was con vinced that it would hecome one of the richest gold producing belts of the coast.
