Yuma county is going to have the largest irrigation canal in the territory to bring under cultivation a half mill ion acres of land, which will cause thp city of Yuma to rival any town in the "territory, Tucson Star. TnE following figures were agreed upon by the Territorial Board of Equalization as just and equitable for the taxation of the railroads named: Southern Pacific per mile, $4,500; Atlantic --fe Pacific, $5,000; Arizona and Southeastern, $4,900$ Maricopa & Phoenix, $4,469; Min eral Belt, $500. Orick Jackson, Yavapai county Immigration Uommissioner, is about to issue a 10,000 edition of a write-up of the county's mines. 'The appropriation was recommend d by District Attorney R. E. ."Morrison and made by the board of supervisors a couple of months ago. Republican. The attention of Trustees of small school districts of Yuma countyis respectfully called to the following section of our Territorial .school law. '"If in any school district ;fhero .shall be an average attend ance for three months of Ipss than eight pupils, such district shall lapse and-thc money m the treasury of the county belonging thereto shall go into the reserve fund sub ject to apportionment as heretofore provided. J. W. Dorrington, President of the Territorial Press Assoc ation, is in receipt of a number of commu nications from members of the as souiation, suggesting that the date of the meeting which was set for July 8th at Prescott, be changed to some date during the meeting of the Driving Park Association which meets in that city the first week in July. Acting upon their recommendation, Mr. Dornngton thus notified Secretary J. U. Martin to change the day of meeting from ithe 8th of July to the 4th iind to give due notice-of the same. We acknowledge receipt of the speed program of the Prescott Driving Park Association to be held at Prescott commencing Jur ist and ending July 6th, U895. All kinds of races, trap shoot ing, base ball, balloon ascension, literary excises and fire hose com pany contest will be among the many amusing features of the week. On the Fourth of July a grand parade and fire works will take place. This will be one of the most notable events ever seen in this territory. Six thous and dollars has been subscribed to defray the expenses of what will prove to be one of the grandest celebrations ever seen in the Ter ritory. There has been quite a serious time in San Bernardino, California, oyer school affairs. It seems that the school trustees of that city were in favor of the retention of a principal of the school obnoxious to the people; The citizens had a meeting, organized into a -quasi vigilance association and appointed a committee to wsiit upon the trus tees. The committee met, sent for the trustees, and notified them that unless the principal was dis charged within twenty-four hours, one thousand parents of children would gather at the ringing of a bell and demand the reason why.! Ho threats were made but the trustees thought the matter bo serious that they gave the princi pal his dismissal. Of course all -this -was not st rictly in accordance with law, but the people of San Bernardino thought the trustees were elected- to act for the best interests of the .public schools and the pupils therein, and not for their own individual ag grandizement or out of personal feelings of frienship or enmity. The public schools of the country aro very dear to the American people, and'they cannot bear to see the educational welfaro. of our chu dren tampered with .by either, neg- COItllTIlSSIOft&It OF I319II- DeVoteS to the Resources of Yrtna County by tlie Com. missloner of Immigra tion for $a.il County. Anyone having any facts, within his knowledge pertaining to the resources of Yuma county, or ideas to suggest in the direction of the county's progress in develop ment of those resources, will confer a favor by communicating them to J. W. Dorring- ton, county Immigration Commissioner. It is the intention to publish a series of articles advertising the advantages to be derived by investment of capital in agricultural, mining and other enterprises, and hence the com missioner is anxious to secure information relative to individual properties and special enterprises. Address J. W. Dorrington', Immigration Commissioner, Yuma, A. T. There are few counties which present so many desirable induce ments for the farmer and fruit grower us Yuma county. It is not meant by this assertion that persons without means can settle upon land and thrive. No dependence can be placed upon rains as there are no rainy seasons, and the only means of watering the soil is by irrigation. To construct a system for irrigating requires an im mediate outlay of money, and any endeavor to realize a profit ox even a bare livelihood by tilling the soil, unless one has sumcient capital to start right, would prove futile. There are many different ways, however, by which water can be conveyed upon the land, from the modern canal to the .primi tive wind mill. It has been demonstrated that a twenty acre tract planted to citrus fruits, will pay better than one of one hundred acres, as the smaller acreage is generally better cultivated and cared for and -there is less waste. Of course, a gravity canal, where the conditions are favorable, is the cheap est and best method, but where one is acting for hinaself independent of any organization it is generally too expen sive to construct a canal, as the stream has to be tapped a long distance above the tract to be irrigated so as to get the necessary fall. A twenty acre or forty acre tract can be irrigated, how ever, by a steam pump taking its sup ply from a deep well, m any part of the Gila or Colorado river valleys. The .first cost of a pumping plant is comparatively small and once the ground i3 levelled and dicthed the water cost is 'very reasonable. Wood' can be had for two dollars and a half to three dollars per-cord. Five and ten acres can be irrigated, -by a wind mill, and of course, as many milk as necessary could be placed upon the land. By far the best system for persons of small capital, is to co-operate to gether in the construction of a canal for the irrigation of all their lands, and in keeping the same in repairs. In other words, form colonins for pro ductive aud protective purposes. This -system has proved emi nently -successful in the Fanner's canal enterprise, written of in our last article. As, however, under the canals uo.w constructed there are large tracts of most desirable land, to be had cheap, and only to be levelled and ditched fertile re ception of water, we recommend tne same for colonization as being cheaper, and from the fact that the problem of irrigation, at those points, has been thoroughly de monstrated. The canals have only to be tapped where desired, and the water is at hand without delay and -in sufficient quantity. The farmer here has but little to contend with. Having his water always at hand when needed, there is never . any fear .of droughts. The soih is so rich that there .is no ex pense for fertilization, frosts are so rare that they are never .dreaded, and blizzards and cyclones are-unknown. Caterpillars, army-worms, scale and other pests that.devastate other sections of the United States cannot live in this dry climate. In fact nature has done everything for this favored spot, so much in fact that it requires but a mini mum amount of labor to. induce mother earth to yield her choicest treasures. Yuma county is the best watered of all-the counties of the Territory, being traversed by two such rivers as the Gila and Colorado, and the time is not far distant when every acre of its arrable soil will blossom.like: the rose in the growth of almost every marketable agricul tural product. It is now when land and water can be had cheap that seekers for homes and farms should invest, for California when hone but the capi talist can get a foot-hold in owner ship of the land in this count'. After this the Commissioner of Immigration will devote a number of articles to the mining resources of the county, and will at a future time return to the subject of agri culture. Our old friend A Dixon, of Sum ner, was in the city yesterday and of course called at the Monitor office and had an. old timo chat. He said, "I have been reading of that Arizona colony. I want to be one of them, I have been wanting to go west for a long time. Here, take my part of the money now. I want to go out there and I tell you there are lots of men at Sumner who will take stodt and go When you get out your prospectus send me a lot of them. We all wunt stock in the Randolph -colony." This is the -way we hear it every day. A start is all that is needed to form this colony and make all rich and happy, Daily (Moberly, Mo.) Monitor. We Second tlie Motion. The time fixd for the semi-annual meeting of the Arizona Press Associa tion is July 8 at Prescott. The Bulletin would suggest that President Dorrington change the .date to July 3 This would enable the brethern to drink lemonade with the Prescottites and see the great celebration on the Fourth. Solomon ville Bulletin. ITuma Destiued to Iead. Such in tlie Territory, One of the most important railroad projects ever undertaken in Arizona is that which is now under way to build a line from Durango, CaU, con necting at that point with the Rio Grande system, to Flagstaff, Arizona, where it will connect with the Arizona Central railway, thence south to th junction of tho Salt and Verde river, thence via Phoenix and Yuma to San Diego. This line is backed by and will use the bank of the Hudso Canal Company from hhe junction of the Salt and Verde -rivers to Yanm . The Arizona .Central railway has fif teen miles of track from Flagstaff south already laid, and twenty miles more graded. It is-incorporated with a capital stock of $12,500,000, has no debts and its line passes through on of the richest portions of Arizona. If has one locomotive and twenty-thrpe cars in use on its line. The Utah South"rn Railway wi 1 extend its line from Frisco, Utah, to Ueuar Uitv. lne new line crosses the Atlantic ifc Pacific Railway at Flagstaff and the Southern Pacific at Yuma, where the Colorado River Railroad will connect with it fron Cedar City, using the same road fron Yuma to San Dieco. At the latter place connections will be made with the San Dieiro belt line, wnicn owns the finest and most valuable water front on the Pacific Coast A line will also be built from the junction of the Salt and Verde rivers, south via Tucson to Nogales, and alto fronr Yuma south sixty-five miles to thi mouth of the Colorado. The Hudson Canal Company is by far .the most important irrigation pro ject j'et undertaken .in Arizona. The legislature of Arizona has passed a law exempting any new iailroad built in the Territory from taxation until 1905, which is etjual to a subsidy of $3,000 per mile, 'i .he right ot way has been secured for the. new road from .Flagstaff to Yuma.

Grape fruit, plumn and juicy, is in market again, a harbinger of spring- This fruit is an admirable tonic as well as a most appetizing breakfast or luncheon relish. A doctor says that the sharp stimu lus of fruit is the best thing to- set the digestive organs in order for the day, and the peculiar properties of the grape fruit give it marked medicinal value. When eaten at luncheon it is prepare in a different way than for breakfast service. For the second meal the contents of two halves should be scraped out, the seeds and tough cone of dividing skin taken out and the pulp and juice thus obtained used to fill one of the halves, which it will just about do. A tablespoonful of sugar and one of rum or sherry mixed with the juicy pulp adds the perfecting fla vor. At breakfast, with the long pointed orange spoon, the meat is eaten out as is that of an orange and very little sugar is used, many persons preferring none, on the ground that its full medical value is better obtained.
