Editor Herald: A traveler
alighting from the stage here, is both
surprised and disgusted to learn that
Phoenix has no hotel.
When so" git down you naturally
look for the hotel; you don't sec it.
Then j-ou inquire of a bystander for
it. "Hum ah w e-1-1, there is none,
but there is a lodging-house up yon'
der and you can get your meals at a
restaurant, or somewhere." You
look in the direction he points and
make for the ''lodging house'" It is
a small one and you find it stuiied
full to overflowing. "Got auv blank
ets?" Xo. "Got any friends here ?'
'o. "Well the saloons shut np some'
times, before morning, and if they
do j-ou can stand up acainst a cotton
wood tree and slcp, if j'ou don't
want to lie on the ground." You are
astonished, you are disgusted, you j
are indignant. Everywhere as you
approach the place you hear of lively j .

the place is large and increasing
daily, and will justify some person
to do the thing up right. If a second

there will soon be numerous cases of
competition, but a good hotel, at

business, will be without rival for a
considerable time to come
