Arizona has 1,200 miles of rail

on everything they have to export.
The silver fight will be renewed
on the assembling of congress an d
the fight will be kept up until silver
shall win.
Arizona has 1,750,000 acres of
pice forests and these are being
destroyed as rapidly as the greed of
man can do it.
The Gazette shows the smallness
of its calibre by throwing a dirty
fling at Prof. F. J. Nether ton in its
issue of Nov. 29th. The Gazette is
little if it is anything.
We are glad that one of our
valued exchanges is giving us a lit
tle respite these dayjjs from the
»regular hish-hash of stolen editorial
squibs from the able editorial
columns of the Salt Lake Herald.
Growing in the back yard of the
Free Press office are fig trees
which now are bearing their fourth
crop of figs. There is no place in
America where the idiosyncracies of
climate are more genial than right
. here on the imperial Mesa.
Thb Butte reservoir scheme has
not been abandoned. That gigantic
enterprise will be prosecuted to
completion, and when it is the im

be dotted with beautiful and pros
perous homes.
All outstanding advertising bills
due this office must be paid on the
Ist of December. We have our
bills to pay, and some changes and
improvements in the Free Press
are contemplated, and we must
have the amounts due us. We
haven’t time to make another call
before the first.
There are fully 540,000 acres of
land tributary to Mesa City which
is unsurpassed in fertility, yet sub
ject to entry by actual settlers. The
water problem is the only thing
now to be settled in order to trans
orm this vast area into beautiful
and profitable farms. The water
problem will be settled ere long.
The Territorial Statehood Con
vention met in Phoenix Monday,
and continued over two days.
There was a fair delegation present
especially from the Southern coun

were passed, and a Statehood Com

It is given out as a dead cold
fact that Brewster Cameron is

The proposed income tax whereby
it is proposed to tax incomes from
$4,000 to $20,000 two per c**nt,.;
from $20,000 to $50,000 five per
cent, and from $50,000 upward,
ten per cent, is a statesmanlike 1
proposition which will strike the ,
average American citizen of ordin- ;
ary common sense as the sheerest
bosh. Anybody who knows even a
little bit about the matter knows
that the millionaires of this country
will pay but little income. If the
statesmen ; n esse can’t give us a
more sensible financial change than
that they had better quit.
Francis J. Henjsy has placed to
his credit the first convictions eves
recorded in Cochise county for a
transgression of the cattle laws ot
the territory. Mr. H<mey ha
forged to the /ront of the legal pro
session in the territory by his own
exertions. The succession of
triumphs that have rewarded his
strict adherence to the higher prin-
ciples of his profession have placed
