There is a rumor on tho streets to the

much anxiety about tho euibliliiiiuiit
of the Laud Grnnt court; but they did
not sqo fit to do so then, and it Is only
ol Isto that such grunt anxiety to get

evinced, instead of testing the titles

There seems to he jut now n lack ol

people of l'hwnix and Arizona. There
is a muiirnl iinpicssiou that the fair is
a long nay off and ns much as is mcea

This is an orror ami tho ilelay may
prove, fatal to the hops that Arizona!
