Everybody should see the benuti lu line of Christmas wares at B. F. Johnson, Sons & Co. Despite the hard times B. F. John son, Sons & Co- have the finest line of groceries, etc., in town. The revival meetings at the Baptist cChurch closed last night. Th# heavy machinery for the mam moth dredger is now being received- The new instruments have been or derod for the Good Templars’ band. It will consist es eight pieces. Mrs. Hoge, mother of Chas. Wing, arrived this morning from Salt Lake and will spend the winter here. Postmaster Robson’s scores of friends are glad to see him around again after a leng and serious illness! Sheriff Scott of Pima was in town yesterday subpoenaing witnesses for the Tewkesbury and Kibbev cases. Goodwill lodge I. O- G. T. was or ganized at the Jordan school house last Friday night with seventeen mem- Wrs. Ralph W- H. Hall, the handsome agent of the Singer Co., railed on us Tuesday. The Singer is the best made. M. J. Forster is at his o’d place ia the Garden Gate saloon, having suc ceeded Ed. W- Jones in the proprie torship. ■ Just as we go to press we learn that our townsman D- A. Spragg has been appointed Asylum Commissioner to succeed Judge Hakes. Peterson Bros, took the contract for constructing the half mile cut-off of the Highland canol. They have about twenty teams at work. Mrs. Jane Johnson is here from h er home in Juarez, Chihuahua. She will •pend the winter with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Judge Hakes. The conjoint meeting of the young ladies And voung men M. 1. A. was held in the hill Thursdav, and an entertaining program was pr sented- Lawrence Kimball was m ide happy Tuesday by the arrival of his wife from Utah. Mr. Kimball has been here some months, is pleased with the country and will probably abide with us. Mrs. A- B. Pritchard arrived home last Sunday from a summer’s visit to her old home in Des Moines, lowa. She owns some valuable property here, among which is a fine, young orange grove of fifteen acres and a lemon grove of five acres. Ed. W. Jones expects to devote his time this winter prosecuting the de velopment of his mines in the Super stion district. One of his mines has already had considerable development work done and it gives promise of being as rich any mine in the camp. The first gold ever extracted from district seven or eight years ago when Ed. was running an arastra on this thin*. The pleasant home of L. L. Leavitt _ just east of the city was the scene of one of the most enjoyable ao-ial events of the season last Monday afternoon and evening, the occasion being a • birthday surprise party tendered to • Mrs. Lottie Lamb by her mother, Mrs ; Judge Hakes and ber sisters Mrs. ■ Leavitt, Mrs. Johnson and Miss Eflie • Hakes, The whole affair was a com plete surprise to Mrs. Lamb, as she had been kept in blissful ignorance of ! all the elaborate preparations for the entertainment. A large number of the relatives and frieuds filled the par lors and at about two o'clock gathered around the banquet board which was laden as sumptuously and well prepared as ever graced a banquet ta ble. The afternoon was spent in the enjoyment of the banquet and in so cial converse aud the pleasant occasion elosed with a social dance in the evening. The only obstacle so far encounter ed in the active prosecution ol' mining operations in the Superstition district is the shortage of water. This diffi culty will be overcame in the near future. There is a good supply of 1 water beneath the surface, as is shown ( by the fact that water in considerable volume is found in all the shafts at 1 from thirty to sixty feet. The fifteen 1 stamps of the Mammoth are kept j hammering on marvelously rich ore on nearly full time.and the entire sup- | ply of water comes from the working shafts of the mine. A pumping plant! on the Salt River, seven or eight miles ' c distant, however, is thought by some, j r to offer the easiest solution to the ques- i c tion of au abundant water supply- It j i is highly probable that this will be 1 1 done in the not long hereafter. jt i f The newly discovered gold fields; west of McDowell are attracting con-} siderable attention, £and some claim j that they will eventually compete! 1 with Goldfield for the honor of being j 1 the richest camp in the territory. ( Large numbers of people are now up * there and a large scope of country has already been located. While several ( parties say they have failed to find a 1 color in horning the rock, the assayer < tells us that all the ore which he ha is assayed gives highly flattering results. ] A number of the first locators went up Monday to begin development work. It does look as though Mesa * was to be literally surrounded with ( bonanzas. 1 A custom mill is badly needed in the Superstition mining district. Among the scores of mines on which development work is being prosecuted ‘ to a greater or less extent, not 1 one which would not now amply pay all expense* of deve! qwient were there a custom mill there to workup i the ore as tis taken out.. We under- i stand there are parties who contem plate putting up a custom mili there, < and when this is done the tea’, genu ine boom of that bonanza camp will . j begin. The organization of a Baptist Young People’s Society of Christian Eudeavor took place at the Baptist church Sunday evening. There were about thirty members present, and the following rffficers were elected: F. C. Thompson, President; R. H. Brown, Yice-Pres.; C. T. W'se, Secretary; Della Vernon, Corresponding Secre tary. The society will meet every Sunday evening at 6.30 o’clock. We beg feave to call the attention of our readers to the new advertise ment of the Mesa Nursery Co. which appears today This company has thousands of as fine home grown trees as we have ever seen, and they are absolutely free from pests or disease and are sold at prices that defy com petition. If you want to plant trees call on them. Huber Macdonald, son of A. F. Macdonald, arrived in Mesa last Thursday from Salt Lake. He came to look after the new goM fields west of McDowell, having received and as sayed some ore from there, and the assay proving so favorable that he started at once for Mesa and the mines. Prof. Wm Crowburst of Oakland. 1 Gal., lectured to crowded houses last Wednesday and Thursdav evenings at f the Baptist church. He is an eloquent • and a forcible speaker and his work i here resulted in a large accession to i Go d Temnlar Lodge. He is making • a lecture tour of the territory under the grand lodge I. O. G. T. J A TRYING ORDEAL. f| , A trio of young men, including ( !our townsman, Albert P. Stocwman, j was examined before the Examina > i tion Committee of the District and ! Supreme Court last week. I his j Committee includes Judges Camp '•jbt-.11, Street, Armstrong, Bennett aud Ainsworth, five of the ablest lawyers in the Territory, and the examination to which the appli cants were subjected, continuing lor three half days, was unquestion ably the most technical and critical to which an applicant for admission to the Arizona bar was ever sub jected. In fact it is said to have been more extended and searching than that given to applicants before the Supreme Court of California. One of the applicants is a graduate of the law department of Yale, and yet he fell before the fusilade of technical legal interrogations. Mr. Shewman was the only successful applicant, and he was highly com plimented by the bar of Phoenix and his many friends for the sue cess with which he passed through the ordeal. He has never taken a course in a law school nor in a law office, but is essentially -self made. His success is a compliment to him and a just reward for his deter mination and close application. He will open an office in this city, in Vernon & Spragg’s real estate agency, for the practice of his pro fession. The cookhouse at Peterson Bros. ] camp on Ihe new Highland canal cut off took fire one night last week. The cook vacated the burning establish ment without waiting to arrange her toilet and the boys turned out without their overcoats on and quenched the s fire after some damage had been done, t Take a lo >k at the new advertises s nent of B. F. Johnson, Sons & Co. This firm has a fine stock of goods in 8 its several lines, and is selling for c cash as cheap as the cheapest. Read the advt. and call on them- Hon. A. -T. Streetor left last Thurs day for Mexico to look after his large landed estate near fopolobampo. He expects to return to our city in the spring, and will probably be accom panied by his wife. Arizona has 1,000 miles of irri. gating canals and needs more than one hundred times that many ( insure her complete prosperity. Arizona Ins 1,000,000 acres of | land in cultivation and I,ooo’ miles of irrigating canals. This is one ' mile of canal to ev tv 1.000 acres. J i Arizona has a population, so they say, of 80,000 people and a bonded indebtedness of SBOO 000. That is a bonded indebtedness of §lO to every man, woman and child in the territory. What the floating debt is we don’t know. 11,Ml) Reward. Proclamation by the Governor. Territory of Arizona, Executive Department. To all to Whom These Presents Shall Come, Greeting.
