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.—

| 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. Daily En
terprise,
