NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION. United States Land Office, [ Tucson, Arizona, Mar. 21, 1894. | Notice is hereby given that Wiiliam Barnett, of Mesa, Maricopa 00., Ari zona, has filed notice of intention to make proof on his desert land claim No 1626, for the whole of Section It, Tp. 2 South, Range 5 East, before the Clerk of the District Court at Phoenix Arizona, on Thursday, the 26th day of April, 1894. He names the follow ing witnesses to prove the complete irrigation and reclamation of said land: James Pine, C W Pine,Samuel T Barnett and Win Newell, all of Mesa, Arizona. Frank W Walls, First pub Mar 22 Register. Ari/onn Ornn^eM. The Midwinter Flir lias brought •ut tliH merits of Silt River valley, Arizona, as an orange producing section. Oranges from there were exhibited yesterday wlrob recently i score 1 91 points out of a possible 100; and that after they had been plucked four months. The ordinary , orange of commute reaches the market in February an I March while these Arizmi oranges are said to b>! ready for shipment Nov -1 10. This gives them an advantage 1 in the big markets. 1 Th * fruit-growers of this valley have labored long and hard to show that their grapes, apricots, peaches, figs, lemons and oranges, were#earli , or by from one to four months than the most favored portions of Cali fornia and it would appear that at last their labors are beginning to bear some good results.—San i Francisco Call. -»■ 0 4 -4 Speaking of prospecting the other day a well-known prospector said: “There are at present within a ra ■ dius of a hundred miles from this city three times as many prospec tors as ever before. Ample spring rains and bountiful snows in the mountains have made it unusually favorable for those searching for gold mines to prosecute their work and the stur ly miners are taking advantage of the opportunity. This activity so far has been attended with good results but many parties have not yet reported Many caims, however, are being re corded, and confidential friends are daily buttonholed and carried to a convenient place to be shown rich sp -cimens.— Review. Arizona possesses all the natural resources for one of the most pros perous states in the un'on and will eventually rank with many of the older sisters e»st of the Rocky mountains in point of population and wealth. It is making constant natural progress and will continue to do so. Our territory possesses remarkable recuperative powers and can survive almost any calami ty, but what we want now is state hood. If we will only unite for the common cause the glorious fu ture will endow the new state with the greatest of blessings.—Enter prise. Arizona has an abundance of rich soil and a tropical temperature in its valleys. * With the comple tion of the great system of irrigat ing canals now being constructed, says the Denver News, the abuu dant water of the Colorado and the Gila Rivers will furnish the one thing needful to convert South western Arizona into a vast fertile garden. With heat, moisture, health and cheap fertile soil, Ari zona only requires* population to make it one of the richest of the western states. The Sweetwater dam in San Diego county holds back enough storage water to irrigate 100,000 acres of land. The projectors of this enterprise sell water t.o far mers at $3.50 per acre per year. It is considered one of the most re mup.eralive investments yet made in Southern California Such an enterprise would lie even more profitable in Cochise county than in California.—Prospector. At the Antwerp exhibition which opens May sth, the American ex , hibit will occupy more floor space than at Par's. In point of size it leads all other foreign exhibits. The Tombstone Prospector Rays' “The victory of the settlers on the Sonoita, Babocouiari and San Ra fael grants is not only a victory for them but for the whole territory. The result of the deliberation of the court proves that nearly, if not quite, all of the grants in southern Arizona are founded on fraud The best attorneys to be had were em ployed by the claimants to defend their titles, but they were over whelmed with a volume of testi mony that left them absolutely nothing to stand on. The verdict of the court is a gleam of sunshine for Cochise county. It means the opening of a vast area of magnifi cent country to settlement. The first color of title given to these grants was by Surveyor General Wasson in 1879 when the great silver discoveries first brought our section into prominence. Wasson repried these grants to the land oflice at Washington as being en titled to recognition by the govern meat. This was fourteen years ago. Since then the claimants have held the high cards in all le gal controversies. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and the settlers alreidy upou the ground and those to come will hive Uncle Sam’s fiat to back them up. It is almost be yond the shadow of a doub 1 " that the Boquillas de Nogales grant, claimed by the Hearst estate, tak ing all the country of value from Charleston to Benson, will be knocked out in a similar manner. All of these grants are on the same footing, and what is true of one is true of the balance. When the time comes that titles to land can be secured from the government then will Cochise county leap for ward with new life and enter upon an era of prosperity which will open the eyes of drones and startle the most sanguine believer in our ultimate greatness.” Yuma, perhaps no more than any other town, has suffered from “write-ups” given it by strangeis, tnen well enough in their way, able newspaper men, and all right at home, but not capable, fit or com petent to put the facts in regard to the place, its advantages and sur roundings, its resources and pros pects for the future before the public. Even if they were able to do so, in their respective journals what does it avail, compared to a carefully prepared and honest state ment of facts, published in a local paper? Our own people, the men who have lived here for years, cer tainly know what we have, what we are doing and what there is .in the future better than a stranger. Instead of paying out hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to some stranger to write up what Arizona might have been, if our people wou d pay the same money to the local press, they would get better service, radre facts would be known, their influence would be wider, more good would be done, and Aai zona would be the gainer. Let our home papers, working for the good of the territory be assisted in this good work, rather than the tramp. —Sentinel. The regular monthly debt state ment from Washington shows cash in treasury March 31, $133,950,- 025 of which $100,000,000 was gold reserve; interest bearing debt. $634,940,030. The total debt is $1,631,138. Total cash in the treas ury $790,780,717. The custom house is to be re moved from Tombstone to Bisbee. One year ago Thursday the nomination of L O Hughes for governor of Arizona was confirmed by the United States Senate. At that time it was prophesied by dis satisfied members of his own party that he would not be in office six months since. Twice that length of time has passed and he is still the Governor of Arizona, and the present indications are than he will remain Governor during the D -mo cratic administration. Arizona has never before had a governor who has taken fche interest or h*d her welfare more at hoart than Gover nor L. C. Hughes. Every public institution in the territory today is running with a less expense to the taxpayer than ever before and the credit is entirely due to Governor Hughes.—Sentinel. The SaR River valley will grow more fruit this year than ever be fore in its history and to judge from the eastern papers which con tain intelligence daily of further injuries to the fruit erop, there will be good prices realized for our crop. —Herald. It is computed that the death rate of the world is sixty-seven a minute and the birth rate seventy a minute, and this seemingly light percentage of gains is sufficient to give a net increase of population each year of about 1,200,000 souls. Congress appropriated #135,400 this fiscal year for the distribution of garden seeds throughout. tha United States. Each Congressman received 3000 more bags of seed than in any previous year. Arizona has thirty-five thousand Indians on reservations. Some of the reservations cover the best land in the territory and should be thrown open. —Sentine! Twenty-six western railroads now have a system of watch in spection by which the timepiecos of employes are regularly examined and regulated. More than 700,000 men nre em ployed by American railroads. An English syndicate owns 3,000,- 000 acres of Texas pasture land. It takes $85,000,000 to equip alt the cotton factories of the world. The Bank of England is watched nightly by a guard of about fifty men. There is one business man in New York who deals exclusively n celery. The annual consumption of wine in France averages twenty-three gallons for each person. The Ancient Order of United Workmen paid $6,286,000 to the families of deceased members in * 1893. An American photographer, F. E. Ives, is astonishing London by successfully taking colored photo graphs. The day is not far distant when Arizona will ship her fruit to Cali fornia to compete with the home product of that state. * m The climate of southeastern Ari zona is the most inexpensive and the surest health restorative of any section of the Pacific coast. iNo. 31.
