Pomeroy Block, Main Street, MESA, ARIZONA. Arizona's Resource*. Without drawing anj compari sons, odious or otherwise, between lowa and Arizona, we may suggest that wnen Mr. Hepburn of the former State opposed the admission as Arizona as a State he spoke from the depths of a profound and la mentable ignorance or drew a heavy draft on his imagination for his Mr. Hepburn evidently has not got over his school boy ideas of the Great American Desert, and believes he has finally located it and run it to earth in Arizona. The fact is, as every intelligent person ought to know, that there vast tracts of land in the valleys of Arizona which, when irrigated, will become fully as productive as any portion of the earth’s surface and svhich, we may be sure, will not be chilled by the snows of an lowa winter, nor blown out of existence by cyclones and blizzards. To say that land is valueless because it has never been used for purposes is idle and foolish, and it j is equally silly to assert that arid land is valueless if it lie so that it 1 can be irrigated at a reasonable price. I It may seem an absurdity to Mr. i Hepburn that people from lowa 1 should go io Arizona, but it is no * more absurd than that people from '< the Eastern and Middle States 1 should go to lowa, as they have been doing for years. Arizona has agricultural, horticultural and min- ( eral resources which await only ' men and money to develop, and it need not surprise Mr. Hepburn if some of his own constituents find their way into the country which he erroneously supposed to be an American Sahara. Arizona has already acquired no small reputation for early fruits of various kinds, and the more en thusiastic citizens there declare that within a very few years they will supply the East with all its early fruit. This, perhaps, is sub ject to some discomt for enthusi asm, but it is certain that while Mr. Hepburn is shoveling the snow away to get from his house to his barn—if he be a farmer—the Ari zona fruit-grower in favored locali ties will be picking ripe fruit, and parking it for shipment to the Eastern market. The gentleman from lowa must- find some better argument than the desert argument to arge against the admission of Arizona. —S. F. Chronicle. Several fine bodies of building stone have been lately found near Florence, says the Oasis, and skill full stonecutters are now at work dressing the material. It comprises granite found within a short dis tance of the town, and a very fine character of black marble, a ledge of which lies near the river on the Riverside stage road. Wilson Ac Adams, the Florence stonecutters pronounce the marble to be of the most valuable description for interi or furnishings and for monumental work. Probably the most wonderful of all the strawberry family is the Arizona everbearing. This plant blooms anil ripens its berries every 1 month in the year, with proper , care, and many of the berries will measure five and six inches in cir cumference. It originated in Mex ico, but is coining into general no tice more in Arizona, where it proves very prolific and delicious. The berries are of a deep cherry red all over and of the finest flavor.— • Rural Californian. The Colerado Hirer. | Thu recent conference of Arizo na’s governor w ; th Minister Rome ro of Mexico t at Washington, re news attention to a project of vast i importance to the soilthw*!St«Tii territories and incidentally to the entire country. Gov. Hughes clearly indicated the value to l»oth countries of constructing jetties at the mouth of the Colorado river, which is in Mexican territory, and thus making that river navigable for 650 miles, tapping a district rich in mineral deposits and an ag ricultural and horticultural region of extraordinary value. AH this region, however, as well as Nevada and Southern California, is deficient in coil and in timber, while Mex ico. alon 6 the shores os the gulf of California, inland, has immeine natural supplies of both, but at present finds no market for cither because of lack of transportation facilities. Making the Colorado rnavigable would open up at once a great traffic in coal and lumber foi Mexico in exchange for the pro ducts of the soil which the south west portion of the United States produces in such profusion. Min ister Romero will bring the matter to the attention of his government and it is to be hoped that prompt action will be taken by both gov ernments. But for an error in mapping, the United States and not Mexico, would be the possessor of the mouth of the Colorado to day and vessels for oceau traffic as well as internal commerce would now be navigating that historic and at times turbulent stream. —The American Contractor.! ; ” The Los Angeles Times furnishes this interesting straw as an indica tion of the progress of Arizona. Arizona is becoming an agricult ural -country at a rate that must be astonishing to old timers who went to the territory twenty years ago. The latest move in this direction is the location of a colony of 500 Italian families near Yuma, who will go into the business of raising grapes. We have no doubt the experi ment will be a success. Arizona will not long depend for its reputa tion upon mines, Apaches and the Kicker. r l he magnificent irrigation capabilities of the Gila, Salt, and Colorado rivers, with a climate second only to that of California, and a soil that needs nothing but water to make it produce anything will abundantly qualify the terri tory to become a State of the first rauk.—San Francisco Examiner. The tramp evil on the coast has assumed such magnitude that tho Southern Pacific railroad company has at last resolved upon heroic measures. The armed hordes of vagrants chased from town to town by sheriffs, constables and police, have so hampered the railroad in its traffic that the company has de termined upon the employment of heavily armed Pinkertonian mer cenaries who will defend trains and i railroad property at all hazards , against the roving hands of tramps. . Not only will it do this for its self - protection, but it has also been de . cided to petition for congressional [ action with a view of securing mea sures that will deal in a decisive manner with the evil.
