ARIZONA NEWS. Projector: lv a derci filftl on record Dr. (vn. K". (lood fellow, for imrly of Tombstone, lifts trans ferred Ida interest in the Knncho Han Ilafael del Valle grant and no called Hnake ranch on the San Pedro river to Col. W. C. (Jreene. This grant adjoins the landed holdings of the Greene Cattle Com pany, and gives valuable grazing acreage to the already vast inter ests of the company in this county. Yuma Sun: Frank and Ed. Crane are threshing their crop of overflow barley, which shows what a single irrigation will do in the valley of ttie Colorado. The an nual overflow ruined their 100 acre alfalfa field. They plowed it and sowed it to barley. Without any other irrigation the barley was allowed to mature. They have .3000 sacks of barley averaging 115 pounds to the sack. At an expense approximating nothing, they have a crop worth about $4,000. Yuma Sun: Prospects are bright for Yuma county having a fine live stock exhibit at the Territorial Fair next winter. W. E. Lynch will show legi-tered lied Poll cattle; George Fishbaugh, regis tered Durham?; Cash Smith and W. II. Lyons, draft stallions. Yuma can do herself credit in live stock and also in many other lines. This county should send up to Phoenix an exhibit which will at tract tiie attention of homeseekers. tourists and capitalists who will come to the Arizona Fair. Bisbee- Review: The Empire Land and Cattle Company, of Pima county, has filed an affidavit for the appropriation of water in this county. The water to be appro priated is what is known as Mes cal Springs, and is located in the Whetstone Mountains, in what is I known as the "Gap," and is about , a mile and a half from the Pima-' Cochise county line, on this side. I The water is said to measure about three miner's inches. The com pany proposes to pipe the water into a reservoir for watering their stock and for irrigating purposes. Yuma Sun: Yuma's river front! had the appearance of a great ship-1 vard Thursday. For the time thy j Colorado rivalled the Ulvde, asi two boats were launched that after noon. The mammoth dredger of the California Development Com-' pany slid down the ways at the foot" of Gila street as slick as you please, and without a bilk or jolt entered the water and floated off. A smaller barge, built for J. (J. White k. Company, on the Cali fornia side, met with a slight mis hap. When half way down the ways, she stuck, but was success fully launched without much difficulty later. Bisbee Review: Clerk Howe, of the board of supervisors, has re ceived requests from the Territorial Board of Equalization for certified copies of the assessments of a num ber of the large mining companies as turned in for this year by County Assessor B. J. O'Reilly. The gen eral impression is that the Board is going to take some action on them, as they are the only assess ments asked for outside 'of the regular yearly abstract that is made out.

Pennon Pre: North of I'ii.on the San Pedro river valley extends in a remarkably direct course for about 100 miles to its junction with the Gila, the water supply is increasing and the rich valley widening out, being hemmed in by mountains where large bodies of copper ore and veins of coking coal lie dormant for lack of trans portation facilities. This valley is one of the most inviting fields for railroad construction as yet un occupied, in the United States. The Santa Fe system has purchas ed the right of way, but at the present time only a small. force is employed on its construction, though the line already built from Phoenix and down the Gila valley to the mouth of the San Pedro, is being put in fine condition to with stand the floods of rain now begin ning to fall in Arizona. mrnmm (III Fashionable Sum mer Clothing, Slioes, Hats and Furnlsliiiiiis lor Men.
