Mr. John Armstrong, late pri vate secretary to the governot, has succeeded to the editorial manage ment of the Tucson Star. He is a newspaper men of experience -and is a valuable acquisition to the , N * ranks, Wr cannot see what earthly good the coinage of the seigniorage is goi ig to do the country, T'lie silver in each dollar will be worth 60 to 65 cents. Paper would oost less and the paper money would be just as efßcient as a circulating medium. Nothing 9hort of free coinage will restore silver to its proper position. It is the unqualified opinion of taubiased mining experts that Gold field will prove to be the richest mining camp in the territory. Gold is found everywhere there, in sand, grayel, clay, rock and conglomerate. There is plenty of it on the surface and evrry blow of the pick or the drill ti di it richer. And yet, there is no excitement up there, no over sanguine enthusiasm, but the work keeps steadily on, quietly but surely. The Mammoth is to day the bust paying mine in the territory and there are . plenty of there we belie/e wiiV prove to be just as good. While we are praying and sing ing for statehood we should not forget to shout hallelujah upon the birth of some new and important industry, and the beginning of the development of any one of the in numerable resources of the country. Our fertile soil and gold-bearing hills only await the touch o: well directed industry to send forth a steady stream of w• il li. [f we get statehood and that desired boon is notfollowed by increased taxation capital will he ready to take ho d of the many opportunities for in vestment and push our new state well up toward the zenith of pros perity. Even now Arizona offers better and safer inducements for investments than any other portion pf the west If Arizonans want to overcome the effect* of occasional newspaper effusions which are sure to find the if way into eastern papers, they must do something besides “where as” and “resplute.” A score or more a month of slanderous letters ?an do no harm to any country ex cept it be an absolutely worthless one. Southern Califo mi l is a monumental exam of the utter harmlessness of such letters as that written by Hey wood. We who are here mast be honest enough to ack nowledge that the *e is work to be done in the way of development and improvement—work in devel oping the unlimited resources of wealth with which the entireterri tory is pregnant, and when our people put their shoulders to the wheel unitedly to secure the devel opment of those resources, all the Heywoods in the world will not be able to do us harm. The tariff question gives rise to some queer but awkward situations. A California Democratic paper puts pt this way: Every member of congress is in favor of a reform of the tasiff laws except when it applies to his own state. There he wants protection for his home industries, but is will ing to swear that free trade is a b.easing for his neighbors. The 3>uih wants protection on sugar. The east wants it on her manufac tured goods. The Northwest want it on corn, wheat, pork And be**f. Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michi gan want it on luinb*r, Ohio and Texas want it on wool and Cali fornia on fruits. while the silver states want it on ons, and lastly Pennsylvania wants it on coal and iron manufactures. So the schedule runs all over the country and many of those who have clamored loudest, for tariff reform are now clamorous for protection for their constituents. The Midwinter Fair, , Napa County's exhibit was one of the best. Upon entering the Northern and Centre 1 California Building, which is situated just west of Agricultural Hall, the Southerner, as well as the Easterner, is surprised by the variety And quality of the products. A ’ grains, vegetables, fruits, etc , raised in California are shown, and not least among the eleven counties represented, is Napa County's dis play. It occupies a space of about 1,300 feet at the main entrance of the building. Mr. Chet. F. Wood, one of Napa County’s commissioners, is Superin tendent of the exhibit. He is a man well suited to the position, being congenial and courteous and able to tell you more good things in five minutes about his county than you ever befoie dreamed. Upon first viewing the exhibit the visitor is impressed by the ex cellent showing of the canned fruits, while the dried is unsurpassed. The apples, oranges, potatoes, walnuts, in fact the entire exhibit., is first class and according to authority, all of it—from a from a “seven pound potato to a tiny bird’s egg,” was raised without irrigation. Yet. Napa County iR not a dry place as one obs-ryes upon lonkinr nb-mt,. A fountain renresenting “Jackson’s Soda Springs,"joccupies a prominent Boace, as does the “Samuel Mineral Water,’ 1 while at the right of <h« entrance to the building h a wine exhibit, representing one of their largest manufacturing enterprise*. Here a most successful attempt has been made by the artifioml paint ing and designing to give an ac curate representation of a wine cellar. Not being wholly artificial it adds great interest to their col lection, and seems to catch the popular fancy, especially among the Maine and Kansas peonle who are not accustomed to pure, unadul tcrated wine*. In spite of the many products represented, Napa County did not forget to minister every possible way to the comfort of its visitors, and it was in this connection that, a cozy little space, encircled by a bimboo railing, and artistically furnished, was arranged for i he w*arv sight-se-r. Besides the portion of exhibit already mentioned is the rn’m-ral ore, among is quicksilver from A“tna and Nana consolidated, and gold and silver from th u Palisade mine, ranging about two thousand per ton. On a whole. Nap\ County’s dis play is one of \vh>ch- the po.inle mav well feel proud —and probqhlv will pot be surpassed by any county in the state. It will be astonishing how ab jectly poverty stricken most of the millionaires will become should the income tax bill become a law. A. Cheap Power. And at the same time a reliable power, are the points to be sought for in purchasing an engine. With steam power a constant watch on the gauge is necessary to prevent accident!, jtnd the expense for engineer is a serious item against economy. The gas or gasoline engine is by far the cheapest power, as it will run all day without attention or fear of accident, and the cost is about two cents per hour for fuel per horse power. Foi intermit tent power the economy of gas over steam is beyo d comparison. While these points of superiority are without question, it is important in selecting an engine to get the best ; the best in the long run is the cheapest. Do not fail to investigate the striking advan- tages of the Hercules Gas and Gasoline Engines. Send for catalogue. If you want second-hand engines of other makes at cheap rates we can supply you. We have a number taken in trade and cannot take any more until they are realized on. Palmer A Rev Type Foundry, 405 407 SaiiK>uiC St!, San Francisco. DESERT LA NO, FINAL PROOF—NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION.
