The Arizola Oasis says: Sunday morning at the same time the self registering thermome ter .at Arizola read 19£ degrees above zero, at Riverside, California the same kind of an instrument registered one and one-half degree* lower; and the associated press re ports orange groves at that place quite severely touched by the frost. On the same day tin? Oasis editor made a careful examination of or ange trees at Arizola, and found that the frost hid j,touched them very slightly. These facts make it patent that this part of Southern Arizona is safer for citrus fruits than the famed Riverside region; that the latter is subject to just as great a degree of cold in winter, and that owing to other climatic conditions the frost does not take that hold upon citrus trees here that it does at Riverside. The fact above noted is due to the exceeding dryness of the Ari zona climate. It has long been known that oranges in Southern California would pass unscathed* through a degree of frigidness thai in Florida would kill them, and that has been accounted for by th> uffereuce between the humid Flor ida Climate and the seiui-arid eli mate of Southern California. Reas ooing upon the same philosophy it has oemi held that wiclj its muo iryer a m > pherc Southern Arizona js naturally safer for citrus fruits than Southern California; and the cold of this week has proved the truth of the position of those who have so contended. . As yet citrus culture in Southern j Arizona is in its infancy; but it is destined to a great and profitable development. In the Salt River valley the Arizona Improvement Co., has demonstrated just wlmt can be done; and there is a big held for the industry in the great Casa Grande valley. Citrus cult ure, intelligently and scientifically followed, as at Riverside, Redlands and elsewhere in Southern Califor iia, can be made very profitable piore, Windbreaks should he gr iwn o shelter the growing citrus trees, md attention should be paid to trees adapted to the climate. In this connection ic might bn well to take, a leaf from the experience of our neighbors in Sonora, and plant «uch as have been so successful with them. * ' Mr. Armeny will resume work on. the turquoise 1 mines in the tur quoise district in Cochise county. He has great faith m the value of these mines. He is the owner of the. torquoise. mines in the Burro mountains In Nriw Mexico. The turquoise in the rough .brings $350 to SSOO per pound, and is shipped by express in fruit cans. The out put is about tea pounds per week. This output is the result of five men’s work, which is better than any gold mines in the territory; Some very fine turquoise has been found in the country, but no de velopment work has been done to speak of.—Ex. The expenses of conducting the insane asylum have, been reduced by S7OO per* month. If Governor Hughes' administration aocomplish -1 es ,a proportionate .reduction of the expense of running the other pub lic institutions of the territory, he can laugh at all attacks made by the Gazette-Zulick wing of his party.—-Tribune. And that is just what the administration is doing. The report of the mining renour -; ces of the country prepared by J chief I)ny of the division of m-ning statistics of the Geological survey shows the high water mark in mineral productions was reached in 1892 both in this and every other country. The total value of. all mineral products that year was $184,787,768. This is twenty mil lions greater than for any previous Among the large gains was 877,130 tons in pig iron with ag gregate product of 9,157,090 tons valued at $131,161,039. Gold showed a slight loss, the year’s product being valued at $33,000, 000, was 1,596,375 ounces. Copper gained 56,465,666 pounds, making an aggregate of 352.275,742 pounds valued at $37,977,142. Lead gain ed 10.856 tons, aggregating 213, 262 tons valued at $17,051,860. There was a loss of 7,000 in zinc. Alluminum was almost doubled. The j ear’s product of zinc aggr*-*- gatedß7,26o tons, valued at $802,- 729. Quicksilver 27,993 flasks valued at $1,245,989. Tin from mines in California 160,000 pounds and aggregated for the year 162,- 000 pounds valued at $12,400. Nickle 92,252 pounds valued at $50,739. Aluminum 259,705 lbs, valued at $172,825. Bituminous coal increased eight million tons, making a t >tal of 113,237,845 tons valued at $125,195,139. Petro leum is declining rapidly. In 1891 there were fifty-four million bar rels produced, but in 1892 there were only 50,632,136 barrels at a value of of $26,034,195. Tn 1893 natural gas fell off both in quanti ty and value. Its high water mark §Was reached in 1888 when the pro duct was valued at $22,629,870. The total production of silver was fifty-eight million ounces at a valu ation of $75,989,900, the amount of increase 877,130 ounces for the year at an increased valuation of the product for the yesr, $7,751,- 054. The sting of a bee is composed of two spears of polished horn held in a sheath. One gets an idea of the sharpness of the weapon by a very simple comparison. The edge of a very keen razor, when examined under the microscope appears as broad as the back of a thick knife, uneven and full of notches. An exceedingly small and delicate needle similarly scrutinized resem bles a rough bar from a smith’s forge. The stvng of a bee viewed through the same instrument, shows a flawless polish without the least blemish or inequality, ending in a point too tine to be discerned. In the act of stinging, the spears, each of which has nine barbs and is | grooved with a channel for the passage of the poison, emerge from the sheath. One of them is plung ed Into the flesh of the victim, the , other following, and alternately they penetrate deeper and deeper. The venom is forced to the end of the spears by much the same pro cess as that which carries the poi ( son from the tooth of a snake when it bites. i Thi3 is the way a Sandy, Mohave [ county justice of the peace perform • ed a wedding ceremony recently: . “If anybody knows any reason why j this man and woman should not be . married they will now make it » known or forever after hold their r mouth.” A number of the guests i present opened their mouths—not ; to offer objections but to laugh.— Ex. Over Charged | The Tombstone Prospector Hay-: “A recent issue otthe Glob -1) miii crat contains a Washington dispatch which for a chain of falsehoods is unequaled by any Washington news sent out this season. It relates to cli trges said to have been pi averred ! against Gov. Hughes. In the first place it accuses Gov. Hughes of having a wife who trav els through the territory advocating women’s rights and temperance. Secondly, it accuses the governor of having been attorney-general / under Cleveland’s former adminis tration, and of having a' that time in an official capacity buncoed notn-i body out of SIO,OOO Another charge is that !v* did some work for the government and charg'd four times too much for it. Also that after Harrison remov ed him from his office of attorney general he was disbarred f.-om prac tice in the territorial cqurts. The dispatch states that Col. Hoge, who was appointed consul to Amoy, China, and who was re called when about to sail from Sin Francisco, is doing all in his power to trouble the governor. It. is claimed that Gov.- Hughes caused him to be recalled. These are specimens of the char ges upon which the president is asked to remove the governor, only »ne of which is true. The gover nor’s enemies are indeed hard up for ammunition when they seek to damage a man’s character Gy Recus ing his wife of being a temperance ad vocate. Mrs. Hughes is a woman of whom every Arizonan should feel proud. She does advocate woman suffrage and temperance but she does not travel around the territory as stated. She remains quietly ,at home and attends to her knitting, while the governor travels around the territory and saws wood. There are about 4,700 national, 3,000 State and 1,300 private banks in the United States, a total in the neighborhood of 8,000, some what diminished since May by iso lated- suspensions and insolvencies, but still in excess of 7,800. The gross deposits in National banks o? the United States amount to sl,- 500,000,000; in State banks $650,- 000,000, and in private banks to $100,000,000, a total of $2,250,000,- 000. The gross deposits in Amer ican hanks are. equal to about 60 per cent, of all the gold coin in the world The National banks of the country had loans in excess of $2,000,000,000 at the date of the Comptroller of the Currecuy’s re port on July 13. The Sta,te and private banks at the same time had loans to the amount of $1,500,000,- 000 additional, the two combined equivalent to SSO to each inhabi tant of the United States adults and minors. There are now fifty-five pupils in attendance at the Territorial University. The people of Arizona are gradually realizing the fact that they have an institution of learning in their midst where their sons and daughters can receive a i first-class edneation, and that at - but a small percentage of ihe cost : entailed in sending their children - abroad. The fact that Arizona has i such an institution in operation ■ will give us a standing abroad that ■ could be obtaiued in no other way, i and the citizens of Arizona should : take a pride in its proper inainte nance and do all in their power to promote its,success. —Tribune.
