ARIZONA* H E Biker, who visited Mesa during the past summer, contrib utes the following to tin* Deseret News of '-‘hli L.k-: Arizona is m iking rapid develop ments of her marvelous resources, tier growth is phenomenal. She is moving forward n>w like that riuble Rixjrus when he made those magniticeiic strides of twenty-tvA) feet a step. No one cm fully ap preciate w*i <t ha* been accom plished in the territory without mak.ng it a visit and espe ially without visiti-.g its queenly young capital of eleven thousimd people, set as it is, like a pearl of rieheM ruy, in the mid-t of us prolific an agricultural district as can lie found in this b auiiful and immensely productive valley of the Salt river oid Southern Arizona in safety •* • nd find our.selves sudilenly in th midst of a tropical climate, a land of perennial summer where frost are seldom known a id the respect ful snows of w’inter approach no nearer than the distant mountain crags; where the peaceful inhab itants sleep in the balm} open air beneath the H*r or the orange tree or under til*- blue curtains of a s arry sky all th- year round; i where delicious f>uits rip u in every riio- th of the calendar ex - cepting two; where the poor »r* fied with the mctar of life as well as rich, and bu'k in the balmy .ir of eventide surrounded with all the luxury that a lavish and wealt -y nature can bestow Hremiy be grown the pomegranate, ihe lemon, qu nee, pi ar, p*-ach, apple, prune, date, tLs »p• loot, olive, ora ig -, almohd *;nd grape. Here are all the hardy fruits, vegetables nd cereals of the north, growing sid*- side with dainty fruits of the s-uth iti one prodigious, neyer e di ig crop. There is no land with n the compass of the round glolre whose soil is more richly endowed w h l»oth 'he tender dehcicies and with the hardy pro ducts of nature, aud tin* meager assort.neot of bestowed upon >he soil northern Utah makes so vivid a contrast that we pause and wonder why everybody does not live in Arizona. Here., too, the songs of the most gifted birds are floating upon the soft and resonant air from morn till night. There could not be a sweett-r hour than is sometimes ex perienced in this favored land when one is roused from sleep in the open air by tinkling sounds of earliest mom to drink in with dreamy ear the uiu-ic of a very host of notable birds whose hal lowed throats fill earth and air with rar st. melody. We hear th*' distant wippor-w lj’s lam* nt an swered by the cuckoo’s sad and far-away lay, aud again t ie plain tive notes of the turtle-dove and tne doleful sounds of the moping owl; and all these low and un lan ch »ly notes of the gamut as they, foil upon the «tt* mive *'•• t are blended with the merry warbling voice of the thrush and oriole. And the uieadow-lark breaks forth with never changing rouud of leap ing dancing n »ti*s. The wild oinary, too, with all his little soul sounds the sweet anthem of his morninsr praise, all unconscious thit it is the hour for birds of mightier voice to rouse the sleeping world. Then c*>ines the iron throated hlaqk-bii'4 with his clarion trump of morn. But the grand**nt songster of all the feathery tribe ia the kingly-roooking bird. Upon the leafy summit of the loftiest tree he sits glorified in the blaze of the m >rning light and with silvery tongue enrols all that is heard be low, sweet or harsh, soft oi loud. He is above all, because he sings the songs of all. He is the imper sonation nf each and the unifica tion of the singing host. He is the matchless songster, the peerbss inockmg-b.rd 1 Some parts of Arizona are well s**ttlel and have been thoroughly cultivated for yaars, yielding as large a variety of fruits, cereals and vegetables as any land in America Its Roil is immensely productive and profitable and when improved cannot be purchastd for less than 650 to 6250 per acre. Maricopa county alone, in which is located tne beautiful capital city of Phqe nix, yields nearly ?ts great an agri c mural and fruit product, and as much tiue marketable stock per season, we venture to say, as does the sovereign state of Ritode Island. Tiie noted little Morin iu settle ment of Mesa is located in th>- central portion of this magnificent country. It is far famed for it* excellent fruits and wines, the land is level for many miles and the soil inexhaustibly rich. The growth of vegetation is so rapid that a hew farm may. it is said, b* covered with a growth of wide spreading trees in three years time. The country is beautiful, checkered clean long highways so densely shaded in places that the rays of the sun can scarcely find away through. In the older districts the houses are of the most modern -tyle, clean, cool, and inviting. Largo palm trees spread their broad canopy leaves over the door y irds, while the pomegranate* th** fig, the date, the prune, the almond tree, with oraitge, peach, pear and grape are found shattered more or hsa abundantly through the gar dens and .orchards of the country. The climate is said to be unsur passed for the cure of lung and throat diseases. Southern Oalifor nia to the west and Colorado tot he east have both sc» d high as asylums for the consumptive, but while California is ini Id it is not dry, and vice versa, while Colorado is dry it is not mild. Here, how ever, in the Salt River valley of Arizona is a climate both mild and dry, making it a natural sanitarium for the diseased lung or throat. That portion of this superb val ley which is tributary to Phoenix about fifty miles long and fifteen miles wide and is covered with a system of c*uals so ue two or three hundr d miles in length and supplied with water from the Salt river. This splendid river coming iuto the valley from the east and supple minted with the waters of the Verde am 1 mmy other smaller streams, wh'ch d**ain a territory of not less th in 15,000 square u.ilea, furnishes much more water than is 4 now used for irrigating purposes The California banks haveadodted the eastern rule which does away with the overdraft system and re quires a depositor to borrow money |in the usual way and pay interest on the amount placed to his omit, although the bank hold* lh*> money 1 while the interest is b-iog paid \ Binker Hallman is credited with bring t.h« father of the new ru!<*. r H- is the sam* shylock who caused the reoent panic in Los Angelas 1 and then fortified his own hank ' sirlth a million m gold.

The proceedings of the last meeting of the IrntAoe Asylum hoard showed & reduction in the expense of maintaining that insti tution for the past month of nearly four hundred dollars, and the hills of last month included a weod supply for three months and grain supply for six months. It is be* lievyd the cost of running the asylum will tie finally reduced to fifteen hundred dollars per month, which will be forty per cent re- if due ion on the past management of this institution and that with more patients. The Board of Insane Asylum Commissioners and Hupt.

The return * flood of travel has begun* The many citizens of the valley who have gone to the sea shore and to the World's Fair have begun their return and a. consequent revival of business begins. The stream of visitors has also com menced and will now be augmented day by day. But few vacant houses are te be had even ao early in the season as this, and the chances are that boarding bouses and now vaoant rooms will be filled to overflowing within the next two months Tfcfc prospects are that people visiting us who have money will be ready to invest among us.
