The possees Hio have been hunt ing for Evans and M irrill i ave re cen ly had two narrow escapes from the bandits. By rapid running and dodging among the rocks, however, .the wily officials mide th*ir escape. M. H. Wilsiams, District Attor ney of Maricopa County, has Keen nominated by President Cleveland to be Judge of the D strict Court to succeed Ju Ige Sloan, whose term expires. We congratulate Judge Wiliams on bis promotion He is a fine lawyer and will l»e an ori.a meut to the bench and bar. Judge Richabd E Sloan, whose term of office a* Judge of the Dis trict Court at Tucson, and who i* to be succeeded by Judue Williams, retires from the bench with a re cord behind him of which lie has no occasion to fuel ashamed. For legal learning and probity of char acter he has few superiors, and as a judge is popular with both the bar and people. His popularity with lawyers was recently attested when Judge Biker was unanimously re quested by the bar of Phoenix to call Judge Sloan to fit in his stead in cases in which he was dhquali fied. Judge Sloan , leaves behind Jtim an h niorable record. Bbo. Bags, of the Tombstone Prospector, fivors the settlement of foreign Agriculturists and fruit raisers upon the arid lands of Ari *).»*. Wo hive no obj !c:io;t to in dustriois, enterprising foreigners coming in and aiding in the reclam Btiou of our arid linls, for there are rainy of that class of people who mike goo I citizm* and all very hi itert illy t» the. agricultural wealth of any section.

Tin Anaricm far.nar his n»t that lack of ambi tion that will alio v him to m ike the desert blossom. He is nit hunting for deserts.” Notwith standing, it is a fact that the America t firmer is hunting for d*«iM»rta, beciuse ho h is learned tli ic the desrrt Unis return profits to him th in the lands in the elder' states* and the 3 deserts*of the great southwest, including Southern California, are living, growing ex amples of what the American far mer can do on the arid deserts of j the country, and that the abundant,] irresistible ambition of tbe Ameri- can farmer has led him to conquer thi* desert waste* an l ciuie them to b ovso u and yield untold wealth There is nc nationality or class of people wi«h more netve. d termina tion and ambition to tik" h »ld and reclaim the arid portions of th • country an I build thereon intelli gent, prosperous communities thin the American farm *r. What he has done in S uthern California, in localities in Arizw-i, New M‘xi.?** and Colorado prove* that h** appre ciates tliH value of the desert lan Is. and his experience and success is drawing thousan Is o r others to fol low lion and do likewise. The Southsule is growing in population an l taxable weal'll and lieydiiH to feel strongly now its capability for separate county gov iwiiui' nt. We are now from this on iu the field for a new county. We have been loyal to the old county and hive helped the l*ovs to run the financial machinery while they did all the “liggeritig” and fingering, but now wh feel c*p ble r o do these things ourselves, and we propose to do it. Statistics show tlist there are a few counties at least, of the territory which pos sess less population and taxable wealth than th it possessed by tbe South-ide at the present time. The people of the Southside will have something to sav in the election of members of the legislature next fall, and if their voice don’t B;jeak in untntsfak ible terms, then we ' lose our guess. The manipulators may manipulate but the voters of the proposed new county will vote like nil good citizen* ought to vot< I —-just as they please to vote. , Ccpp*t Elnlng Code. Sew Edition. Henry N. Copp, the well known land lawyer, of Washington. D C., has issued a new edition of the Ameri can Mining Code, including laws lately passed by Congress 'and the » several states and territories.

The eastern horticulturists en route : to California took a run up to Phoeuix . yesterday where they were met by the County Board of Horticulture and tendered a reception and driven over the valley. They expressed them selves highly delighted with the Salt River valley. J. W. Foster, of Dsming, came in ' Monday and will be with us for several day*.
