One of the drawbacks to planting an orchard by a man of limited moans is the length of time required before the crop will produce revenue. Hard ly anything In the fruit line can be planted that will yield a return of any consequence before the third year. It is only the man command ing considerable capital who can af ford to put out money so long without return. That is one of the heaviest make-weights to the devel opment of the horticultural interest of Arizona. In some parts of the country, where markets are close and transportation charges low the period required for development of the orchard is not lost to production, for the land between t lie rows of young trees is planted in some kind of root crop which yields the return me essary to support the cultivator while he is awaiting the growth of his trees. The development of a market de mand for canaigre, and demonstra tion of the jxissibility of cultivating the roots with profitable results, have given southern Arizona the crop need ed to supply an annual crop that will give a good revenue to the horticul turist until his fruit trees shall have arrived at maturity and commenced to yield retards. l!y reading the bulletin of the Ex periment Station, conducted by the University of Arizona, published in The Oasis this week, It will be seen that this profitable crop can Lo culti vated and harvested at an expense no greater than the cost of cultivating and harvesting potatoes, and by meth ods much the same. The preparation for marketing and transportation will give but little additional expense. Im planting canaigre in the orchard be tween the rows of trees, the orchard ist can make his land yield a revenue from the very start. The bulletin states that under cultivation canai gre will yield from ten to twenty tons of roots per acre. The same authori ty states that six tons of green mot will make two tons of cut and dried root making the yield per acre at least I hree tons of the article cut or grated and dried. Only a few months ago Tub Oasis editor was shown a letter from a heavy leal her dealing firm (dealing also in tanners' supplies) in New York City, offering to con tract for the delivery of 200,000 tons of dried and grated canaigre root, on the cars at a railway station for $."0,0i) per ton. The cost of delivery aboard the cars as provided need not exceed &-j0.O0 per ton, leaving a not return to the grower of li;0.(X) per acre. What better results can the planter of a young vineyard or orchard ask than those that may be obtained by planting canaigre between the rows of tree or vines? While await ing their matur ity and productiveness, he can draw Cioivn a net anuual revemi? vt $100 pr ure ( r nvrc 1I re is "; pointer" for tln-e who are contemplating an lnTetni"iit in inn A riola colony tract, but are deter red by the ti'i.e clement in poiio of bringing their investment, to product iveness. Ti:k (.'a. is ha heretofore 'given fr iier.t and pointed derioii j si rat ions of the profitable returns to ,' he derive ! frin an investment in a j five or ten acre tract, planted in al monds, olives, apricots or vine. All these demonstrations contemplated a period of at least three years between planting and profitable production. Now all such demonstrations lake the addition of immediate production by planting canaigre. The ov ner of a five acre tract, in the Arizola colony may load his canaigre product on the ear within a mile of his land, and can realize at least ?.''H) net annual revenue from the same while his trees are growing. "With these views a careful read in jj of the bulletin is commended. It is an exhaustive presentation of the subject, and will amply repay a care ful and thorough tudy. THKOAM1S AT THE EXPOSITION' Quite a number of Arizonans re turning from the World's Fair have stated that the only Arizona newspa per they saw anywhere about the Ar izona display at the Exposition was The Oasis, a large number of copies of which are sent forward each week for free distribution, and are regular ly placed on a table in the Arizona building, where any one wishing a copy can take one. This has been done regularly ever since The Oasis was established (within a couple of weeks after the Exposit ion was open ed and it has done a great deal in making known to the world the possi bilities and infinite variety of resour ces possessed by Arizona. In this connection it may be men tioned without any vain glory on the part of this paper that this import ant work for Arizona has been done by The Oasis without pay or profit.. It will be remembered that one of tiie leading journals at the capital lias been paid $12uo by the Arizona Col umbian Exposition Commission for a slK'cial World's Fair edition, t' ::t was to be ready for delivery in ?r.iy, and that up to date has not p;: forth a single copy. It is now s: .;ted that delivery will begin tomorrow, and that hereafter, visitors to the Expo sition can get copies. I'.ufc the Fair is more than half over, and that is of no value to the territory with the sev eral millions of people who have al ready visited the Exposition and re turn" :1 to their homes, without a glimpse ::t pointed matter in any way descriptive of Arizona, save the regular weekly issues of The Oasis hereinbefore mentioned, lteside the 11200 paid for this special edition, most of the counties have been work ed, and have paid liberally . Yet to date no benefit has been derive ! from all that expense, and all that tii.: ter ritory has had by way of benefit in that line has been given by TheOasis without pay and without heralding in advance the wonders it would per form. It now looks very much as though Senator Vest had played I'resident Cleveland for a chump, and won. From the day of the November elec tion it was announced that Vest had Hopped and beet me a gold bog. He very easily secured for his constitu ents all the "pap'' to which they weie entitled, and more. Now that Ihere is no more pat ronage in sight he has vaulted back into the silver camp, and 011 Mondi.y he made a st rong sil ver speech. The discouragement of the gold bugs is great, and the "stiilf ed prophet" is in the dumps. The newspapers of Arizona are echo ing ht recent assertion of The Omh the.! the Arizona coinmi-sii, tiers at the World's Fair could have tumuli! the evhihits for a creditable display wit h the money that was appropria ted with which to do so. When the po' plegavc them money to get up a display, the commissioners were given ample meam to accomplish the ob ject in view, and failed to do so. The decision of the court of arbitra tion in the IMiring Sea controversy was rendered Tuesday, ami was in the main favorable to t he 1'nitcd States which is given live of the six points for which it contended. The tvrms of the decision are not as liberal to Great Britain as those offered by the United States before submitting the matter toarbit rat ion. The mid-winter fair will be held and it will be a grand success. Hun dreds of thousands of people from all over the country will visit it, and it will he of vast benefit to all sections and localities taking advantage of the opportunity offered, lly all means Arizona should be well represented. The (Gazette recently "touched up" Secretary liruce for his "iippishnoss" in office; and the Prospector immedi ately flew to the defense of his integ rity and honor. It was only ;i demo cratic family row; but the defense was all at a point w here there had been no at tack. It is said that Senator Gorman has served notice on his democratic col leagues that this congress will pass no tariff bill because of opoition of bnsi:""s interests of the country, and thai, ;.:ie McKinley bill is to Ik-revisit; .he revision must he 011 very coi.vvative lines. The most amusing thing now-a-days is the way in which administration organs laud Cleveland in one column and lambaste his gold jnilicy in anoth er, lhit they ay nothing about its being Cleveland's policy. It is beginning to look as if the at tempt at executive coercion of con gress in favor of the Wall street and Lombard street gold bugs will fall a flat failure. It is significant that ltayner. of Maryland, the leader of the adminis tration forces in the house, is the American attorney for the Kotsli childs.
