Editors Commercial: Possibly some if the readers of your valu able paper would like to know about one of the "twin Territo ries," now struggling so hard to bec6me a combined State. I have been in Tucson, the larg est town in Arizona, about two months, and its climate is the finest in the United States. It is warm, dry, uniform, and, in fact, it is summer time here all the time. Asa winter health resort it is be coming as popular as Saratoga or Baden Baden. , Tueson is a little city of 15,000 inhabitants and its population is quite cosmopolitan, for its wonder ful climate attracts people from all over the country. They soon are restored to health and become connected with its business inter ests so firmly that they are soon indispensable commercially and locate permanently here, thus as sisting in its rapid growth and metamorphosis from a Mexican pueblo to a modern cil)' in every sense. The city is over three hundred years old. In 1640 the Spaniard built a post here to protect them selves from the Apache Indians and called it Tucson, an Indian name, meaning "bad water," in reference to the watering place near town here. As such it exist ed for three hundred years. In 1853 the "Gadsden Purchase" an nexed Arizona to the United States as a Territory, but Tucson did not become important until the arriva of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1884, which has been the most important factor in completely revolutionizing the place. In the past few years the adobes, the characteristic Mexican dwell ing house (made of mud and stone), have all been practically replaced by modern residences and business houses, so that Tucson now pre sents as modern and attractive an appearance to her visitors as any Eastern city. Still, however, one- third of ber population is Mexi- can, and in many oi ner modern buildings the most picturesque of the quaint Mexican architecture is still preserved. The town has street cars, a free Carnegie library, the University of Arizona, three banks, twelve hotels, among which the new Santa Rita is one of the swellest, most modern hotels in toe V est, six churches and five public schools, The Elks, Odd Fellows and many other secret fraternities, all have beautiful club houses, and there is also a handsome new country club house iubt completed. There are two daily papers. Tucson is in Southern Arizona, in the Santa Cruz River valley, and surrounded by mountains which are covered with snow al most the year round. It resembles the ancient amphitheatre or coli seum with the background of natur al mountain scenery for its stage setting and the snow-capped peaks as its majestic sentinels and mili tary guard. The view from the roof garden of the Santa Rita is said to rival the view of the Alps from Milan's Cathedral. It sur passes in grandeur some of the world-famous European scenery which it has been my fortune to 6ee. Arizona is, however, far behind us in education. The public schools here 6top with the completion of the eighth grade, whence the stu dents are sent to the free universi ty, where, of course, they must go three years, sometimes, before entering the University, properly speaking. This necessitates the maintenance of a sub collegiate de partment, on the part of the Uni versity, as a preparatory institu tion. Pardon the personal allu sion, but from a sense of pride and self defence 1 shall say right here that the curriculum of ou Union City Training School is as high, in some respects, as that o the State University here. Five languages are taught at the Train ing School, viz: Latin, Greek French, German and English while here only one other, Span ish, is taught. In another respect our private school is far superior to these public schools. There is no race distinction here, Indians negroes, Mexicans and whites al attend the public schools in miscel (any. Education here is in the embryonic state, as yet. m j.ucBon'8 natural resources are her mines of copper, gold and silver stored away in her moun tains. In the valleys alfalfa is her staple product. No country, how ever, has better people or better agricultural soil than Obion Coun ty, and if Union City had the cli mate of Tucson she would be the "fairest of the fair and unexcelled anywhere." t Very respectfully, Jeff P. Moore. Notice to Physicians. There will be a meeting- of the Obion County Medical Association Monday, March 12, at 10 o'clock, at the Elka Club Rooms. Union City, Tenn., for the purpose of electing1 officers for the ensuing year. Every reputable pbjsician in the county is urged to be present, as it is es sential to have this meeting in or der to keep up our affiliation with the State association. II. T. DuTLKK, Pres.

GALVESTON. hditors Commercial: Well, as my last did not find its way to the waste basket of The Commercial, I will try, as I promised in my last, to say a few words to my former friends about this great State. This is my first trip here within the last ten years, and if 1 could only recall the last twenty years that are gone never to return I would make this my home. Why do I say this? First, I am sure it is a healthy country; second, I could find a climate in which I would be pleased to live. And as to soil, I could find that to suit me or any one else that wanted to be pleased. Take Eastern Texas, with its light, sandy soil, adapted to the M 1 11 growing oi peacnes and smau fruits, fine water and timber in abundance that would fill the measure of a man from Georgia or any similar country. The farm- er who wants to raise cotton, corn, wheat, alfalfa, etc., takes the cen tral part of the State, the black lands. If from South Carolina or Louisiana, they go down near the coast and raise rice and other tropical crops that will make him feel at home. So you see Texas has the soil and the climate to please any and all who are seeking homes. All these different varie ties of land are here and can be had for a mere song, compared with our land. Don't let the idea get into your head that all the valu able land is taken up. There is not one third of the State settled, but I can tell you that land is being E. N. MOORE ANSWERS VOTER. Mr. Editor: In response to the inquiries of Voter in your last week's issue, permit me to say that while I think my card is as plain as English could make it, I am will ing to reiterate the sentiments ex pressed in the card. Voter says my card is evasive and that it is noncommittal. If Voter kucw any thing about me at all, and the rec ord I have made in my past life, . he would not charge me with try ing to evade anything. My card published in all the papers was in plain English and I certainly think any one familiar with the mother tongue can under stand it. As to why my vt-racity should be questioned I can't under stand. Docs Voter think I would say one thing and mean nnothcr? If so he knows nothiug about me at all. Have I not said that 1 was not the candidate of any particular class or section and did I not say that I was not bound up with any class or section in any special local legislation and that I would not participate in any Buch unless it hrst emanated from a majority of all'the people and sections inter ested and concerned? Is this not plain enough? Does it not answer Voter's question ? Am I expected to say that I would not introduce a bill for the benefit of my constituents if a ma jority of the voters of Obion County should legally and prop erly demand it? If that is what Voter expects, I will say now that I will not so promise. If 1 did I would not be worthy of ,hu ct.fi dence of any one and should be classed as a tool in the hands of rapidly taken up by farmers and some designing class and should people from the North. Two ship- be ostracized from society. loads of emigrants have landed "or many years there has been here since the first of the year. Jn.d.,D in th Kwlfture special , . . .

These are them in regard to this cr any other all strictly local and belong to the country, but 1 do say that the man people, and no one man bas the who is renting land there surely is rhrht or nower to nun m in hi not a good financier, for be can buy might and say that the people shall as good land here as he rents there not have the constitutional right for what he pays per acre for rent, guaranteed them, that is snlf anv. Just think about this for a moment ernment. Voter asks the niins- and you will see it as I do. A tion, "Would I, if elected, aid, en man in our county with a farm of courage or approve any legislation less than one hundred acres, worth looking to the reonnninrr nf thin from 50 per acre up, had better unpleasant question?"
