Land of the Southwest. The Irrigation Age says Arizona and New Mexico are emerging from the shadows. The sunlight of prosperity and territorial advancement are light ing up the hills and valleys of the southwest and today there is every indication that these territories are about ready fpr the responsibilities of self government. Irrigation has of late years been the most potent factor in the upbuil ling of these territories. The grand possibilities for success, both fr >m a financial and agricr.ltural standpoint, have invited capital and immigration, land reclamation is in full swing all over these sections of the broad southwest. Arizona is fortunate in her natu ral conditions for irrigation progress Much has been done and much re mains to be done in the work of bringing water to the thirsty soil. Today there are 500 miles of cauals exclusive of laterals, delivering water to the land, reclaiming an area of nearly 350,000 acres of land. It is safe to say that the present water development is ca pable of reclaiming fully five times that amount of land, and if this were accomplished it would be but the beginning. Sufficient water could be impounded in the territory of Arizona to render fertile 20,- 000,000 acres of land. The water is there, the land is there and crops would be a certainty; but the capi tal to be invested is wanting. Give Arizona the public lauds now lying within her borders and she will receive a stimulus of growth and prosperity such as is difficult of comprehension. There is a future and a brilliant one for these two territories of the southwest. Irrigation is the key to the situation. Irrigation will yet make these lsnds as fruitful as they were in prehistoric times. Martin Maier’s well-known dog, “Carlo,” has mysteriously disap peared . When last seen he was passing over the can’t-I-leave-her foot bridge, going west. Carlo was cut out for a small deg, but for years his sole drink was beer and his food dry crackers. He kept full on beer all the time, until he became so bloated that his body was almost as broad as long, and his little dog legs were entirely too weak to support his big dog body, and he posed as a '‘horrible example” of the beer habit to the balance of the canine race. He was a com mon drunk and drank like a dog, and no self-respecting dog would notice hi n. H Aiay have poison ed himself by drinking some water since the saloon closed.—Prescott Courier. The effect of the South Carolina liquor law has been to greatly re duce the traffic in intoxicating liquors. Whpn the law went into effect on the first of July last, there were 887 retail, and 14 wholesale dealers in the statp, employing about five thousand men. Now there are only forty dispensaries. The sales of three of these in the ! city of Columbia i n mated in Au gust to three thousand nine hun dred and forty-thi ee dollars as against sales by thirty-eight saloons nnder the old law amounting to ■ thirty-eight, thousand dollars. Es timating the sales in the state at large at the same average, there was a reduction in the amount oi liquor sold in the state in a single month of over eight hundred thou sand dollars.—Leslies. * M. G. Samaniego, in from the round-ups, says that this year he sees fifty head of stock where a few years ago were 500. He says the late stock losses were awful. So depressed was the cattle busi ness last spring that he had an op portunity to buy a brand of stock all complete, ranch, corrals, every thing, for $4.75 a head. Owing to illness he could not visit the ranch at the time. Meanwhile raim came on, grass grew, and cattle stopped dying. Now the cattle are worth $5 more than they were of fered for. The cattle are not now for sale.—Citizen. Twelve of the Jerome freight teams have been withdrawn, owing to the decrease in the yroduct of the mine. The new refinery has been started up, and instead of shipping the product in the form of matte as heretofore it is now re duced to bullion. The 80-ton fur nace and the refinery are still run ning. During the . past summer there have been twenty-eight teams of from bwelvj to twenty-eight animals each engaged in freighting to Jerome. The number has been reduced now to sixteen.—Journal- Miner. The Arizona Leader says the big South Gila d tin work will be re sumed the first of the year. The canal company has paid up 1 all its debts due the workmen from the contrecfcors and have sufficient funds on hand to resume work on the dam, which will be done next month. Everything is in tiptop shape for the early completion of this work. Engineer J. Crouse, the irrigation expert sent over from London to examine the project, was greatly pleased with it and the work done. In retiring from the land office, Mr. Brown carries with him the thanks of ev3ry mvn in Southern Arizona who had any business du ring the last four years in the land office. No officer ever served the people of Arizona more satisfactor ily than Herbert Brown. He’d make a race for governor. Honest as the day is long, one of the plain people, old timers would jump political fences all over Ari zona to flock to his support.—Gra ham County Bulletin. -—■ # A representative of the Denver Record is expected here in a few days to Write up the resources of this section on the usual plan at so much per line. Outside papers as a rule can do a thriving business in this line while the local papers would be looked upon as on a par with highwaymen if they asked re muneration for such a purpose.— . —Journal-Miner. Peter Caffrey is still turning out : rich gold ore from his mine, the ( Vigilant on Stockton Hill. He r has the shaft down ten feet and r will soon have to put up a wind lass to hoist the waste. The ore , contisues as rich as on the surface . and if it a depth of 20 . feet he will be able to take out ten . or fifteen thousand dollars in ora 5 Mohave Miner The Prescott Courier says the t town is full of moneyed mining 9 men, both those who come from f abroad on investment intent and the local fellows who come in from the hills with gold bricks in their pockets.
