The Indians own the very choicest portions of, the west now Better give the white man a show, just for a change. Steve White, the people’s cham pion in the Senate from California, is being- heard in the senate on the .Chinese question. Hon. Stephen M. opposes bitterly the late attemp ted juggling with Geary act and believes in its vigorous enforcement- Tom Fitch, the silver tongued orator has returned to Phoenix and announced his intention, to locate permanently . They say booms always follow Tom Fitch. Wheth er that be so or not, we are ‘sat isfied «that a boom will be upon Salt River Valley before spring. Abizola, the beautiful new city by the Gila, don’t, propose to go to Hell, by long odds. They have imported a brand new preacher pver there and propose to build a phurch. They better have a re serve to repair damages, for Ari zona lightning seems to have a warm fellow feeling for church buildings. An old miner said to us the other day that the Superstition district |s one of the best poor man’s min ing districts he ever saw. With a Small grub stake and energy enough to get out from under the shade of a mesquite tree, a man could strike a “layout” that would place him in good circumstances. Good ore can be found there by going down any where, in a wide scope of country. The trouble is, too, many of the prospectors stick too close to the shade. - v Phoenix, Mesa, and Tkmpe might have eombined and made an exhibit of fruits, dried and fresh, second only to California.—Cor. Florence Tribune. Don’t get ner vous nor excited. In the not long hence, Mesa, single handed and aione can make an exhibit second to none, not even to Southern Cal ifornia. We’re getting there, hut |iome wasn’t built in a day, and Mesa’s preeminence as a fruit section is advancing steadily, but surely. The world cannot beat us •slien we get dpwn to business.. Great O.iD ! Where are we at? It docs seem that Hell has been robbed of fuel, San Quentin of a deserving victim and Stockton of a lunatic. A deed was recently placed on record in Pinal county from James Peraltareavis and Sofia Loreto M. de Peraltareavis to one McCargar, of Chico, Cal. This is the same Jim Reavis we used to know as a common, everyday peda gogue over in Los Angeles county. That double sommersault in his name seems to indicate that Jim studied too hard when he was a boy. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. Qur postmaster, C. I. Robson, was kicked by a horse about noon yester day and very seriourly injured. He had led the animal to water and in returning to the stable it ran past him and kicked, striking him on the chi n dislocating the jaw on each side and breaking it just on the left side of the chin. It was thought for awhile that he had been otherwise seriously injur ed in the head, but it is hoped that such is not the case. He suffers se verely, but with the good care which he receives will shortly be on the road to recovery. The String town champions say they have met the enemy and are theirs. The first of the series of the three games was played at the Park in Phoenix on Sunday last and was won by the Phoenix amateures by a score of fifteen to twelve. The Stringtown boys have blood in their eyes and will win the two succeeeding games. Dr. Trippelleft Monday for the Phoenix mine to assume his duties as manager. He will attend the Irrigation Congress at Los Angeles on the 10th of October, having been appointed a representative by Governor Hughes. Proclamation by the Governor. Executive Department, 1 Territory of Arizona. J Whereas, There will be convened at Los Angeles, California, on the lOlh day of October, 1893, and remain in session for five days, an International Irrigation at which leading ivrigat’onists of the United States. Europe, Asia and Australia will be pr. .nt, and at which a number of important qu: :tion«. relating to irri gation law, irrigation securitiej, irri gation methods, etc., will be discussed and determined. The imp .rtsuce of this congress h 'z received re. ngnition from the national government in a circular lettei issued by the Hon. Walter Q. Gresh n sec retary of state, dated July 7th 1893, inviting the attendance of representa tives from all foreign governments interested in the subject of irrigation. The department of the interior will be represented by an officer specially detailed to impart to the congress such information as may be in the posses sion of the governmeut, obtained by surveys which have been carried on for several years by the United States geological survey under and by direc-: tion of the government. As delegates will be present from all the states and territories where ir rigation is carried on, and from foreign countries, where this mode of agriculture has been experimented with for years, the discussions will prove of the Highest practical value to every citizen interested in the de velopment of Arizona. There is no question which presents itself to the western half of the United States, especially to our own section, which is of greater importance and fraught with more momentous results than the solution of the arid land problem. It means the reclamation of many million acres of land, the em ployment of thousands of people, and the providing of myriads of families with farms and homes, resulting in the production of untold ♦ ealth. Our people can point w* pride to the wonderful results which have been achieved by irrigation within pur own borders, in the reclamation of over a half a million acres of land and the Contemplated reclamation of a mil lion more in the immediate future. This is enough to inspire the en thusiastic hope in the possibilities of Arizona’s horticultural and agricul tural resources, and should serve to excite the deepest interest of our citizens in this congress. The oongresa will no doubt discuss and by resolution adopt and recom mend to the congress of the United States a policy by which these lands may be most easily reclaimed. Such a policy if simple,' practical, and[ in volving little or no cost to the federal government, will in ail probability he crystilized into a national law, and it may be that the states and territories comprised in the arid section will be given the reclamation of these lands. Now, therefore, I, L. C. Hughes, governor of the Territory of Arizona, do hereby request and urge the peoplo of the territory to interest themselves in the coming congress, both by discussion of the subject and recom mending to the proper officials the selection and appointment of delegates specially qualified to present the views of our people on the irrigation interests of Arizona, and by their practical experience to assist in brtng mgthe deliberations to a successful conclusion. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the great seal of the Territory to be at fSEAL j fixed at Phoenix, this the eleventh day of Septem ber, In the year of our * Lord oue thousand eight hundred and ninety three.
