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

Speaking of his extensive irri
r gation enterprise Judge Hender
t shott says:
The top contour line of the

1 Basin, is 240 miles and the reser

t square miles with an average depth

feet high, 100 feet thick at the
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.
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.
