When the bil! for the admission of Arizona was b‘fore the Hou m H* pb urn of lowa said: “The ider that people wont l go from low i out to that arid country is prepos terous. I went out there once aw' I never saw a green tiling—ttub’S I wore breeches.* Bowers of California in his re j ply declared that the valleys of Ari zona was more fertile than those ot the Nile. H pburn coining from a I State largely prohibition in sent'i ment is unacquainted with irriga tion.” The Sacramento, Cal., Bee says B iwers was right in his characteri zation. There is no spot on earth where the soii is more fertile than the Silt River valley in Arizona* Wherever water is placed on th< arid plains of Arizona, the trans formation is wonderful. The yuc< a and the cactus are replac ed by tin orange, the lemon, the vine and deciduous fruits of all varieties. California’s coining fruit rival is Arizona. The latter being free from fog, liaviug a warmer climan and an earlier spring, is destined i«> sup dy the eastern m trket with the earliest fruits grown in thee mntry. Arizona has an imm use acreage that can be irrigated from the Col orado and other rivers. Alr*-ad) vast irrigation schemes in the terri tory are making the desert blossom in vino, and tree and the bounty of harvest. The future of Ar.zona is bright with promise. This season starts out with a great deal of promise for the cattle men. The demand for cattle is good and buyeis are purchasing cattle in greater numbers than ever been before known at this sea j son of the ye.ir in this part of New | Mexico. Several shipments have been made from this country this year, and buyers are in iking con tracts f »r spring deliv ry whenever it is possible, but ranch men gen erally are holding olf in the expec tation of better prices than are now being offered. The cattle shipments from this parr, of the territory this year promise to be 1 irger than ever befure and cattle are in much bet ter condition than they have been for a number of years past.—Silver Ciry Enterprise. There are at present in the min ing districts near Yuina eight quartz mills having a combined capacity of 150 stamps. Thirty stamps are not quite ready to drop and three mills of ten stamps each are idle. The remaining ninety stamps are all running on gold of varying rich ness. The product will probably average SIOO,OOO per month. In l addition to this the product of the j silver-lead districts is from SIO,OOO jto $45 000 per month. The hum 1 her of men employed in and around the mines and mills is about 500— Turn 8. The Silver City Sentinel says, Col. Ha*d n, who lias extensive cattle interests in Nevada nays that j the present holding of cattle which are feeding will average only about one-half in we ght and three fifths in number as compared with those fed in former years. He looks to see beef cattle bring eight cen's in 1 j the market before April Ist, owing 1 | to the poor prospects.—Ex. fI i ( [\ Superintendent of Public In struction, P. J. Nethertin, took nd ' i vantage of his visit to call upon Jour pubUe schools. Hi* is an en- j 1 tliusiastic worker for the benefit of the schools of the territory.—Stock man, Tiie Denver ritnes gives some idditional barticul irs of the bond - ng of the Congress mine. It Mavs: The Congress mine, 60 miles north we«t of Phoenix, his lu»«n bonded from the heirs of Diamond Jno •Reynolds for a million dollars. Tiih bond is held by Chas. Armes and N. K. Fairbanks, the Chicago mil lionaires, and E. B. Gige, in longer of the Grand Cential mine at To-iib stone. The mine contains a very urge percentage of uiediurif snlphu— retie gold ore, is extensively devel oped and has a 30 s'.amp uiili. “You can take the witness,” said rhe prosecuting attorn«»y in a trial before a Texas court to the defend ant g lawyer. The witness happen ed to be a good looking girl. “Judge,” oxc'aimsd a yoking man in the back part of the room, .stand ing up on a seat, with one hand un der his coattail; “don’t him take her ! That witness has been engaged to me fer tnore’n three year, and if he takes her thar’s go in' ter be trouble right here. National l:v*k note circulation, which reached $209,500,000 during the money stringency l ist summer, has declined to $204,500,000, and •s daily growing smaller. During December it decreased' $2,422,000, and in January $1,305 000 in law ful money, to redeem the bank notes when presented, have been deposited in the treasury. By law the reduction of bank note circula tion is limited to $3,000,000 per month. A M.ter from Harrisburg states that John Bullet has made a very rich gold discovery in the vicinity of Copper Camp, northwest of Vul ture. The or<» is as valuable as any found in the Harqua Hala. A narty of Virginia City caoitalists or* on the ground investigating tho nronertv with a vi**w of purchasing Tt is siid ‘h it, $200,000 has been offered for the claim. The party is supposed to represent John Mackay, of bonanza fame. “Shoe brunches, 10 cents,” was what caught the eye of a man pass ing the shop o f a tradesman with whom lie had had some dealings. The passerov went in and said, “That isn’t the way to snell brushes” •‘Of course it isn’t.” said the cheer ful merchant. You are the tenth this morning to come in and call my attention to the mistake.” —-- * * The Prescott Courier says the Lvnx Creek placer miners are p'l 'ng up their rich gravel waiting for n flow of water sufficient to run it through the hoxes. A*, a number of places on the creek there is plen ty nf water for rocking, and those engaged in that method of extract ing the yellow metal are making good wages. m m Supt. Gates has demonstrated hi.s fitness for the position he holds hy wisely arranging a plan compelling everv able bodied prisoner to work. He will undoubtedly soon render the penitentiary self-supporting, and bv so doing win the gratitude of a peopF already burdened wi'h taxes. —Tribune. The United States, Great Britain Russia, Japan and Corea have a greed to protect seal fishing, and with that end in view will patrol i the soiling grounds jointly. It is said that at. least thirty vessels will he engaged in this work from the various governments interested. » They JHfliTt Visit l*. w*rd has been received that, tb • horticultural excursion no** • t Phoenix will not visit the souHi side, the time being fully engaged by the Phoenix Chamb r of Com merce. After coining so far th<s visitors should not have missed * trip through this section of the »• t ] h-y and the chamber of coniine e« will probably live to set its *h«»r - sighted ms* in not bringing th .> here. Some o? the things-they have misled seeing are: One of the richest gold mines in the world. The ouly cactus factory in world: The largest flouring mill in <‘*.n sputhwest*; run by waterpower The largest steam dredger in J» United State*. The largest acreage of heart.»g deciduous fruit trees of all varie;>«« in the valley. The largest vineyard in the tern lory. Acres of young orange, olive and lemon trees. The most extensive irrigating system in the southwest. Thousands of acres of the finest fruit land in the world at prices ranging from $25 to SSO . per aero, with water. Miles of green alfalfa fields dotted with thousands of cattle fattening for the markets. The famous ruins of Los Muertos, the ancient city to have contained a population of 100 000 souls. Grain fields stretching a wav far as the eye can reach. These are a few of the th*‘«"» that, the visitors have missed s«ei>". There is no donbt however but tb*fc they will be pleased with the v-iH *v and with what the Phoenix pe >pl* can show them, for it is really in many instances only a smaller sesle of what they would have seen on the southside. We are proud of the sou r hside not because it is particularly better thtn the Phoenix country, hut be- . cause it shows moie extensive de velopment. We believe it would have been a benefit to all parts of the valley to have had the stran gers take a trip through this sec tion.—Tempe News. From the steady increase i«i the amount of gold bullion deposited in the Denver mint during the past few months it is predicted that the coming spiring will see the inaugu-. ration in Colorado of the most gi gantic gold boom that ever struck the country.
