Thursday, August 10, 1893. —— * The Chino, Qal., beet sugar fac tory employs now over 2000 people. The output this year is expected to jbe 16,000,000 pounds The public debt statement for July shows an increase less cash in the treasury of $4,264,013. The .cash in the treasury has decreased $4,574,722. Jfon. E. J. Edwards, of Globe, has been engaged by the Hudson Reservoir Go. to negotiate with the property o vners of Tonto Basin for jbhe land to be covered by the res ervoir. A bridge to connect San Fran cisco and Oakland is now proposed by a young engineer of the former city. He says it could be built in fifteen years and would cost only $60,000,000. Tjeie circulation of the national b&nks has increased $3,000,000 in the past month. The banks of New York will further increase the peculation by issuing notes based pn government bonds. The first number of the Arizona Monthly Weather Magazine, pub lished at Tucson by W. R Burrows, is upon our table. It is neat, well edited and devoted to the ciirpate and resources of Arizona and will fio valuable work for the territory The coming report of Governor Hughes will be one of the most elaborate and exhaustive ever sub mitted to the government. Among £he many vital questions discussed Will be the improvement of the Colorado river the improvement of which will very materially advance the commercial interests of the territory. Statesman Redewill, late piano seller of Phoenix, is seeking to im mortalize himself by advocating the annexation of Arizona to Southern California and the formation of the state of Southern California. Mr. R. better save his breath on that subject, Arizona don’t propose to lose her identity by being tacked on as a tail to Southern California’s k it?: Congress convened in extra session on Monday. Crisp was elected speaker of the House and we presume the first few weeks of the picnic will be oqnsumed in perfecting the organization for the purpose of accomplishing—noth ing. It is our candid opinion that Congress will fritter its time away much after its usual style, in en acting no laws, or if any, then according to modern custom, such as will strengthen the grasp of the Shy locks on the throatsjof the masses. We hope this will npt be the case, but we believe our hope is without probability of realization. In the iqeantime if the financial conditions of the country improve, which they will, it will be because of the nat ural recuperative powers of the country. Business will again re sume its accustomed activity, but through none of the legislation which congress will give us. A Os the papers of the ter ritory take exception to the cor £ poral punishment rule adopted by r the Territorial Board of Education t at its last meeting. We are glad t to know that our territory is adopt- ( ing the advanced ideas upon this I subject that prevail in the very i best school systems of the United i States. We’are glad to know that i i thus early in our history our school 1 system is being placed upon a proper and humane basis; that it is ( . by our best aducators realized that there is a better, more logical, 1 rational and successful way to t govern children than by using brute force; that the day of the strap, the hickory, the : birch apd the rule, is ended, and that these unsuccessful implements of school government have prac > tically been relegated to the rear, aiid placed among the relics of a less progressive age; that reason, judgment and the nobler qualities 1 of the heart are to evoked in the 5 government of the schools. To punish pupils should be no part of the teacher’s business; he is in the school room to teach, and he should not be forced to try to teach chil dren who by lack of training at , home are not teachable. The en forcement of the rule referred to will have the effect to practically abolish corporal punishment, for . the method of its application will l possess more,terror for the vicious • than any other mode that could be t adopted, certainly more than the ■ old method of flogging unmerciful ly in the presence of the whole school. In the latter method, too, I the teacher, as a rule acts under l the influence of anger or excite l ment, which begets like feelings s in the mind of his victim, and his [ castigation only hardens the cul prit, and fits him for more flagrant violations of good order. We hail k the adoption of the rule as an advance step toward better and > more efficient, and better governed schools. I • Big Water Storage, Speaking of his extensive irri r gation enterprise Judge Hender t shott says: The top contour line of the > reservoir, which will be in Tonto 1 Basin, is 240 miles and the reser , ervoir will cover an era of 100 t square miles with an average depth 3 of 91 feet. The dam will be of » solid masonry, 216 feet long, 226 feet high, 100 feet thick at the top. j The Superstition, mountains will be tunneled to make way for one 3 canal south to the Mexico line and 4 west to Yuma. } The Salt river will be flumed at a point about one mile below the Arizona dam and water carried to ( the north side es the river and from the eqd of the flume to the western i boundary line of Maricopa county. —Gazette. t One of the Mesa and Phoenix , stages got stuck on a bar of quick- I sand at the Tempe crossing of the ; Salt on Monday. A teamster hap pened along and assisted the sand anchored stage to a position on ter ra firma. We beg the pardon of our city authorities for again referring to the matter, but there really are some culverts across nearly all the sidewalks in the city that are absolutely dangerous. They ought to be repaired. Our schools are expected to open for the fall term the first of Oct ober. The following able corps of teachers will have charge of tho schools: Prof. C. O. Case, princi pal; W. A. Coy, intermediate; Mrs E. L. Storment primary and Miss Mamie Anderson, assistant. The fourth room in the school house is being fitted up for occupancy. • Rapiey, Bauer and Williams be gan sinking a well Monday on the new road to the mines about eleven miles east of town. At a depth of about four feet they struck a ledge of rock whose appearance led them to test it for gold. The result was more than they expected, showing a large percentage of the precious metal. They think they have struck a bonanza. O. S. Leßaron, of Arizola fav ored our office with a pleasant visit. He spent a few days here visiting his relatives, the Leßarohs of this ci|ty. He is largely interested in real estate at Arizola and informs us that his section is keeping pace with all parts of Southern Arizona in improvement and development. In his report to the Governor on the condition of the schools of the territory, Superintendent Nether ton lacked reports from some of the counties, and therefore his re port was not as complete as he de sired. When the reports are all received he will file a complete sup plemental report. * ST. LOUIS Qeex p| all —O— VAL BLATZ’ lager beer ICE COLD, ON DRAUGHT. — o — 5 Oents.
