THE COPPER ERA, CLIFTON, ARIZ., SEPT. 7, ISM.
I NEW ADDITION TO CLIFTON. Choice, Level Lots Placed on the Market. 30 Sold in Less Than a Week. Just keep your ere on Henry Hill's Addition to Clifton. That it is tha best investment that can ba made is proven by the fact that 30 lots have been sold in less than one week, and hardly anyone knows that there are any such lots at all. Good building lots in Clifton are not to be found, and a house "For Rent" sign is an unknown article. With tha mining industry advancing as it is in this district, which is so rapidly increas ing all kinds of business, it would be an easy matter to rent a hundred good houses without reducing the rental from the present high figures. It is also reported, and on good author ity, too, that Graham county will soon be divided. Should that prove to be true, Clifton must necessarily become a county seat. There are other substantial improvements ahout to be made near this plot of ground, the land for which has already bean secured, which makes this Addition to Clifton exceptionally at tractive as an investment. An invest ment id good or bad, according to the demand for the property invested in, and the competition in the sale of other like or similar property. Demand and com petition regulates values. This is as true of real estate as it is of groceries and dry goods. With plenty of competition the demand becomes over supplied and val ues decrease. Without competition val ues must increase, because the demand exceeds the supply. Where a brisk de mand exceeds the supply, and there can be no competition, where is the limit to the raise in values? Henry Hill's Addi tion to Clifton has no competition as there is no other building ground, and the demand for houses is great and con stantly growing. The increase in the de velopment of the mines in this district is rapidly growing, as well as the in crease in the production of those devel oped, all of which is largely increasing the volume of business done in Clifton, and this constantly keeps up the demand for more building space, and as building space is scarce it will always have an in creased value. But as a place to build homes for those who are paying high rents, it offers inducements that cannot be found in any other part of Clifton. The ground is high and dry, and not so tightly hemmed in by the high rocky bluffs, and it is always much cooler be cause it is so open ; it is absolutely free from the fumes and smoke from the smelter; it is away from all disagreeable noises and other obj actionable features of Clifton; the lots are large, being fifty feet front by one hundred and thirty feet deep, with an alley in the rear; each lot has room enough for a good sized houea, with lawn in front and garden in the rear ; there is an abundance of water for irrigation and the town will be supplied with the best of mountain water for do mestic purposes; bridges screes the river are to be built and every convenience af forded. In fact it is the ideal placa to build an elegant home and live in peace and quiet where there is plenty of good fresh air, plenty of room and wtiere there are no objectionable features,and especi ally so for children. j There will be several houses built im-1 mediately by those who have already purchased lots for that purpose. Tins present, low prices of these lois will in jure their speedy sale, as the people know and appreciate a good thing, and they have had nothing better otfered them since the discovery of the mines in this district. The Era predicts that every lot will be sold, and many of them refold at a handsome profit, in less than a twelve-month. Not only keep your eye on Hill's Ad dition to Clifton, but the Era's advice to all is to buy a lot before an advance is made in the price, which is sure to come soon. We did. Last Saturday morning John Revitt, an employee in the assay department of the A. C. Co., accidently stepped in front of the switch engine in the yarda here and was severely injured.
