The revival of trade goes on.
B’i’om every part of the cunntry
comes the encou>aging news that
suspended works are in operation!
that money is’ becoming plentiful,
that.the scare ia over;and thit the
general feeling in the danger line i s
passed and security is assured.
The p .-.ia has be< n largely an
eff ct of the opposite feeling. There
has been in u-o of it in feeling than
in fact. Alarmist*- are largely re
sponsible for it. Among them are
many of th** bankers of the country.
They . commenced to pinch up,
refuse credits, call in loans, stop
overdrafts by even indisputably
sound business houses, and to pro
voke the runs that nearly led to
their ruin. The alarm spread to
every circle of society, increasing
in wildness as it traveled till it
became a veritable cyclone, spread
ing consternation and destruction.
It is over, thank heaven, and
though confidence may not be fully
restored, it is reviving, and the re
sumption of business by banks and
mills and various trades tells th*-
story of returning prosperity.
Now let everybody try to put away
the spirit of complaining and of fear
and go about their business as
though they meant business and not
its restriction. As soon as the
banks become a little more free in
their transactions with their cus
tomers, a freer feeling will prevail
in all commercial and trad** circles
It will be a token of a turn of the
tide and will hejp them as much as
anybody else. Deposits will come
back, money will circulate,
n* ss will bn brisk, and all branches
of industry will be encouraged and

Phoenix is ever on the forward
march and no sooner floes she
8-cure one great improvement than
she seeks to get another. A few
short years ago big freight teams
were camping in the main streets
of the town as they passed to and
from the Southern Pacific road
with freight for our merchants, and
the streets were without lights at
night except that supplied by
nature. When first the gas w*s
turned on and from the street cor
ners a s’ckly lamp was thrown, tin
people thought, grand things in the
way of civilized improvements had
been accomplished. But later,
when the railroad was completed,
the. electric lights came to brighten
things a little, and then the march
of civilization was mere brisk.
Big, handsome, brick block and
public buildings were built and
other improvements had along with
the telephone exchange, one of the
best on the coast, and a magnificent
sewer system that will rival those
of larger cities. Last, but not
least, the electric street railway,
and Washington street property

this is the most prosperous city on

Sioux Live S’ock Journal says:
Farmers and stock growers have
felt the present depression less
than those engaged iu any other
branch of business, and this is al
ways the case. Os oourse this does
not necessarily apply t,o those who
are badly in debt for their stock or
for other purposes, for where debts
h;tve to be paid everything has to
be sacrificed. One great advan
tage is that nearly everything the
farmer or stockman raises can al
ways be sold for cash with which to
pay debts, which is not the case in.
most branches of business. Profit
may be cut off and even some loss
may be entailed, but nothing when
compared with other things.
The university of Arizoua starts
out with an increased attendance
for the fall and winter term and
this promises to become a very suc
cessful year for that excellent in
stitution. About forty students
will be in attendance, and this
number will likely be considerably
increased later in the season. Dr.
Theo. B. Comstock has devoted the
vacation months to labors connected
with the success of the university
that will bear fruits in the coming
years. It is an institution that
should be fostered by all progressive
citizens, as its worth is not easily
estimated in commercial figures.—
It is not among the improbabil
ities that when a railroad is built
to Globe, some time in the future,
it will start from Wilcox, and take
iis route northward through the
Sulphur Spring valley, Aravaipa
Canyon, and directly through the
San Carlos coal fields. A revival
of mining interests is first necessary
to warrant this piece of enterprise
in railroad building, and with such
revival, this route is the one to
make business for it.—Stockman.
The cattle business of Arizona
will today command a net profit of
fifteen per cent per year on the in
vestment, and it is a low estimate.
It is possible that to those who
invested ten years ago when stock
cattle were at a prmium, this should
not he done, but by a reorganiza
tion, figuring on what such cattle
can be bought for now, it can be
done and is being done, and the
profits are bound to increase in the

The important but thread-bare
subject of irrigation ie handled in a
masterly manner, and one that
must commend itself to the Irri
gatian Congress, soon to assemble
at Los Angeles. The arid land
question is one that has had care
ful study at the hands of Governor
Hughes, snd will command the
attention of congress. Statehood
for the Territory, is gone into in
all of its details, and the results
painted by a master’s band.
Tim question of improving the
Colorado river, and the thorough
manner in which he goes into til*
matter, shows that the governor has
given this most important subject
very thorough investigation, aud is
fully alive to tbs vital project of
its improvement by the national
government, the grand results which
will accure to it, as well as the vast
benefits to be derived by the Ter-
ritory, in cheap transportation to
more than three-fourths of it* area,
the seme to be desired above any
otner that can be given us for the
same expenditure of money.
A good many years ago, in the
times when John Quincy Adams
was making his wonderful record
in tho House of Representatives, a
crisis arose in that body in whieh
the gaining of time was an object
to the whig minority. Mr. Adams
secured the floor early in the fight.
After he had been speaking three
or four days, a Democratic member
interrupting him testily inquired
how much longer his speech was
going to b*. The old man placidly
replied that he could not tell pre
cisely, but if he was not interrupted
too much, he hoped to get through
with his opening remarks in the
course of the week.
Mr. Stewart, of Nevada, in the
present silver emergency, seems to
be following this example, Late
yesterday after having
held the floor of the Senate for three
days, he gently remarked that he
had finished with one of about a
half a dozen branches of the silver
question and would stop for the
time being, but that he would on
successive future occasions pay his
respects to the other five branches
in each instance with equal elabo
