SALT RIVER HERALD
SATURDAY. Ai itlL M. We are pleased to c.dl the atten tion of our readers t) an account in another column of a meeting of these int rested in the agricultural and inJut.hd pursuits of this val- lev. It will he seen ly consulting the Mine tluit t!ie citizens of this sec tion of the Territory are moving in the right direction and in an earnest manner. At the outset of the puh lication of the Hf.kat.ii we sug gested in our editorial columns the wisdom and aJlvantaes of the or ganiza:io:i of a county agricultural society. Whether the meeting of the farmers on Saturday last to co.isidi r ih - propriety of such an organiz ition is the outgrowth of die Hkkald's stiu'crsriou or not, is quit? immaterial, so long as this most important industry is t re ceive due consideration at the hands of the gener d public. . Every merchant, miner and me- chanie in the irr.-at Salt llivei val- ley and vicinity are directly inter- ested in the development and growth of the agricultural and hor ticuhu al Lit iets of the valley, and they no doubt, realizing this fact in all its significant sense, will lend their influence and their money in fostering this most important inter est. The giowth of Ph:'nix will be measured by the growth and devel opment of the surrounding country; and with this general development of town and country will follow an increase of t:ade and demand for mechanic il labor. We say to those encaged in this move towards or ganized effort in agriculture, go right on ; push ahead ; make your wants and necessities known; tell uk what jou can do with the virgin soil of this rich valley ; test its pos sibilities in the most practical man ner, and the IIkrald will give you all the encouragement and backing possible. WLen the Herald first started, the S. F. Chronicle made the re mark that our name was a good one for a campaign paper. The item appeared so very funny to the Ter ritorial papers that they all copied it twice, ami some even gave it a third insertion. We now have enough paper of our present size to last us for some time after the tlec- tion, but Saturday evening's mailj. iv ...i x laiicii-u caiiieu n iiirj;t: order for an increased si;; of I paper, and as soon as it airivis. the IIkrald will be enlarged. We have clso sent a large order to the best type foundiy on the Pacific coast, that of Marder, Luse & Co., San Francisco, for large advertising type. Our press was purchased of the above fouu'Vy. and is tint finest press iii Aiizoua, as is the Herald the best paper. We would leeom mend the above foundry to intend ing purchasers. The last Enterprise says its dis patches from Silver City, Xew Mex ico, are exclusive. This is an un truth, as the wiiter very we'l knows, as every dispatch from Sil ver City to that paper is sent by the editor of the Silver City Herald, who also scuds the same dispatches to the Salt River Hf.kald. Phenix has a population of 3.000; that is, by the way populations are counted in Prescott. Nine new buisincss houses arc to be shortly established at Phenix. Prescott is the first town in Ari zona and I'henis second. Put np buildings, as the demand far exceeds the supply. Our telegrams to-day are full and complete. Subscribc for the Herald. TELEGRAPHIC.
