SALT RIVER HER1LD.
Savtarrdaj, Jamuary 90. The SALT RIVER HERALD is the first and only paper published in Maricopa County. "WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY. It is a time honored custom with originators of newspaper enterprises on setting salt upon the sea df jour nalism, to set forth at considerable length their views upon various ques tions of public import, etc. What we have to say at present will be somewhat brief. Our object in es tablishing a newspaper in this valley H two-fold, as follows : Money and the public good. like all other men, we are selfish 'and have a great love for money and yet, while we are putting forth ear nest efforts to accumulate the " al mighty dollar," we shall aim to keep constantly in view the unquestioned claim the general public has upon us to uphold and defend the truth and right in all the relations that the in dividual man sustains to public mor als, the public schools, law, ordei, etc. We have started this paper and printing enterprise in Phoenix be. cause of the great faith we have in the general outcome of this section of the country. There is no spot within the limits f the Territory of Arizona more full of promise of rapid and sub stantial growth, of wealth and popu lation, than the Salt River Valley. Taking the views of this matter above expressed, we are heartily wiih yon of this favored section to throw ourselves into the coming tide of growth and prosperity, and hope with you to be carried on to fortune The question will very naturally le asked "has the Herald sufficient financial backing to insure permanen cy and si e ess.?Two things we know full well are absolutely necessary to assure the success of any newspaper venture, xirst, capital, common sense and ability. Second, patron age of the general public. Of cap ital, we have sufficient to have enabled na to start the business with a first fclass and complete newspaper out fit without being left one dollar in debt for the same. Of the enmnion enseand ability we have invoiced with the above outfit modesty for ids us speaking. Of the second requisite to success (patronage) we axe assured it shall be abundant. We have been gratified to find the peo ple ot .rnaemx and viciuity so unan imous in favor of the establishment cf a newspaper in their inidstand so greatly in earnest in their sub stantial support of the same. We shall do oar best to give value re- cived. Upon one fact connected with the Salt River Herald enterprise we desire to express ourselves in lan guage that cannot be susceptible of aouottui or double meaning.- A paper published in a neighboring town raised the question in a recent issue whether the Herald was not to be published more particularly in the interest cf some particular man for .office. Up to the moment of this, writing not one word has passed betareen the proprietors as to whom the paper will support for Congress the coming fall. In politics the pa per will be independent, and will en deavor in all elections to give its support to the most upright and able man. Lpon all questions of public policy, and conduct of our officials from the least to the grcat- ev, we snail expect to speak freely and without fear. As to whether the Herald shall be managed es pecially and particularly in the in terest of Phoenix and Maricopa county, we desjre to say with em phasis it shall become a local pa per, an earnest advocate of every measure calculated to develop and build np the public and private in terests of this particular section of W.erniory. e are very posi- jwe- m- our expectations that the Herald "will become a successful Moptawd Maricopa county in stitution, and shall be proud to be considered and recognized as one of their permanent improvements. As a matter of course, in a general way we expect to labor for the general goog oi uie entire icrnlory. ROAD TO TIP-TOP, PECK AND BRADSHAW AN IM PERATIVE NECESSITY. Immediately on our northern border is one of the very best min ing districts in Arizona, only forty miles distant by an entirely practi cable route for a firstrclass wagon road, which can be built at a very moderate ctst Wo allude to Hum bug District, in Yavapai county, in which is situated the well-known Tip-Top, as well as hundreds of other mines now being developed, and which, with a little exertion on the part of the people of Phoenix, will become tributary to her growth and prosperity, by drawing not only all the country produce required for the use of men and animals em ployed in mining, milling, hauling, eta, but will, if properly looked after, adopt Phoenix as a base of many of the foreign supplies which they are obliged to use iu their bu siness. Twenty miles further noith is the celebrated BradVhaw District, in which some hundreds of men are employed, who are looking forward to the time when a road will be built to connect them with the fertile valley of Salt River and thence with the Southern Pacifio Railroad. Still eight or ten miles further in the same direction is Peck District, and the marvelously rich mine from which it derives its name, and which is already pi educing its hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, be sides the Block Warrior, liilver Prince and others, all in a forward state of development, and only wait ing for a wagon road to Phoenix and the approach of the railroad to change the channel. of their ship ments in tins direction. Another consideration quite as im portant as any of the foregoing, is the fact that the Bradehaw range of mountains is covered with as fine a growth of pine timber as can be found in America, and the teams that must eventually be employed in hauling flour, grain and merchandise from Phoenix to the mines will be able to get in a double shot, by load- ing back with buUJir.er and fencing lumber at low prices, thus enabling our people to construct residences and build fences without its coming a fortune for freight on the material 1 lien, again, this road will con nect with the Prescott and Brads'iaw road, and thus put us in direct c o:r.- municutiqn with Prescott by tli shortest pof sibl : route. Let our Boaid of Supervisors t ike the question under serious considera tion. We shall revert to this mat ter again and again until it is aocnm pushed, as we regard it as the most important matter now within our power to couiroL TO MINING SECRETARIES. Chapter fifty-one, section six, ef the Compiled laws of Ans:na, relative to the sale of any portion of mining stock for delinquent or un paid assessments thereon, says: No such -sale shall be made with out thirty days' notice of time and place of sale, in some newspaper published in the county. PATENT YOUR MINES. The importance of patenting the mines cannot be too frequently im pressed on the mining community Every man who finds a ledge looks forward with bright hopes to its fu tore, and is assured that success will reward his labors. When it does it seems too bad to have a defective title prevent a saTo. A United States patent is a guarantee that no one can come in with a conflicting title after the pstcnt is granted; and people will not buy now-a-days un less they are sure of this. Th avoidance of litigation with mining property is worth looking after, and AD VERTISEMENTS. ADVERTISEMENTS. ADVERTISEMENTS. SALT BUYER PURCELLA & PERALTA. I J. w. mono. THOMSON & 0. J. THIHODO, M.

We are a stranger among stran gers, and ak the assistance of our neighbors in the way of furnishing us local and other news which will be of interest to the reading public, and at the same time beneficial to the cause we have embarked in that of giving news reliable, late and benefi cial to citizens of the valley. This, the first number of tbe Salt River Her ald,Li printed at the office of the Miner, in Prescott on our own type, for the reason that our press, which was shipped from San Francisco on the 15th in St., has not yet arrived at Pha?nix. There will necessarily be a delay of one and possibly two weeks before the second number can be printed, owing to time it will require to move the office to Phoenix, put it in or der and again set np the paper. By the time we are ready for tne press we confidently expect it to be on the ground, and thereafter the paper will be printed regularly every Saturday, Wk invite contributions for the Herald from all parts of the Ter. ritory, upon all subjects of general interest.'
