Frank W Walls, First pub Mar 22 Register. ARIZONA. The Chicago Inter Ocean says editorially : *‘lt is desirable that the terri torial condition shall cease through out tlio republic as soon as may be. Washington, Montana, Idaho, the Dakotas, Colorado, Nebraska, all the territories, Nevada only ex cepted, that have been admitted to statehood during the past half ceu tury have given good accounts of themselves. Against each of them objections were raised upon grounds of paucity of population, or charac ter of the residents, or climatic con ditions, or quality of soil, or lack resources for state revenue, but the history of each of the young states, Nevada not counting, has belied the prognostics of evil; one and all have prospered beyond beyond ex-r pectation. As much is to be ex pected from Utah, New Mexico and Arizona. The democratic ma jority in the House is understood to lie favorable to the admission of Utah and New Mexico, but to be less favorable to the claims of Arizona. And yet, without disputing the wisdom of the policy that would endow Utah and New Mexico with statehood, we make bold to say that the claims of Arizona are as strong as those of the adjacent ter ritories. Arizona has not been a refuge of’the lawless spirits of this republic and that of Mexico; it has not suffered the vicissitudes of a community alternately boomed and depressed by speculators. -Its growth has been steady and health ful; its immigrants have been of the industrial rather than the adven turous claß3. It has erected schools for the education of its Indian population at a cost of $300,000, and they are maintained at a yearly cost o? nearly $130,000. Its school houses for white children in the county of Pima alone are worth $77,000, and are kept at a yearly cost of $27,000. The counties of Apache, Cochise, Coconino, Gila, Graham, Maricopa, Pinal, Yavapai and Yuma, are in proportion to population as well provided with schools as most districts in the well settled states. Higher educa - tion is avii'able through the mediums of the territorial normal school and of the territorial univer sity, the latter with a corps of eleven able professors of agricul ture, mining and metallurgy, chem istry, the ancient languages, civil engineering, modern languages,*and literature It also has its school of art and several business colleges. A people thus zealous in the work of education display the best quali ties of citizenship. The resources of Arizona already are great, and in time must he magnificent. Large areas are ad mirably adapted to grazing pur poses. The mineral wealth, tho’ yet barely indicated by mining enterprises, is reasonably esti mated to be immense; the $4,000,- 000 or so already invested in mines has produced satisfactory results. Under a wise system of irrigation the agricultural wealth of Arizona must become fabulous; few products of the temperate or the sub-tropic il zones are unsuited to the irrigated soil of Arizona. The winter cli mate of the territory simply is the finest in the world Capital is flowing from the older settled I . | states into this promising region, and its projected north and south railway will connect the rich mill - ing and farming districts of the south with the coal fields and lum ber regions of the northern boun , daries. The territory has an area equal to . that of the combined states of New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware, and i soil and climate in which the cereals of Pennsylvania can be pro . duc-d side by side with the fruits , of Southern California. To admit . Utah or New Mexico and rejec f ‘ Arizona wouid be a blunder in , practice of state making. i —- Many persons who visited the Improvement Cnfbpany’s orange grove last Sunday say that the Salt River valley now contains the most beautiful natural view in America. Ninety acres, the entire orchard are glowing with blossoms and the air is filled with a delightful per fume. This year seventy-four acres are blossoming for the first time and all the trees both the new and older trees give promise of a bountiful crop. Those who have visited the orange groves of Florida and Southern California say that they have never before seen so beautiful a sight as that now of fered by the Improvement Com pany’s orchard. Os the many orchards in the valley the same may be said, proving that the suc cess of orange culture is assured. The past winter has been the most rigorous within the memory of the oldest settlers yet the trees have survived it entirely uninjured while the orchards of Southern California have suffered much from frost.— Republican. The Mining and Scientific Press says active ‘preparations are now being made for the next National Irrigation Congress to be held about September 15th, at some point in the west not yet determin ed on. The last congress, which was in session about a week in Los Angeles, October 1893, appointed commissioners in every western state and territory, whose duty it is to prepare a report to be submit ted to the coming congress, cover ing all the features of special in terest in each state and territory of the arid west. These reports will show the amount of arid and semi arid land; the amount of land now irrigated, and the acreage believed to be irrigable; the sources of water supply, developed and possible of development; the cost of procuring storing aud delivering water on lands; state legislation, in force and needed; national legislation as to the disposition of arid lands and government control of water sour ces; and such other points as may suggest themselves to each commis sion as being pertinent to' their own state. San Pedro rivet enters Cochise county from Sonora, Mexico, about twenty miles from its southwest corner, and flows west of north almost the entire width of the county, forming a valley about eighty miles long and from a mile to ten miles wide. Along the stream, for a distance of seventy miles, small ditches have been taken out, and about twenty thousand acres have been pi in cultiva tion, udon three-quarters of which crops are grown annually. Not m-'re than a third of the water is utilized. Under a judicious irri gating system it is estimated that from seventy-five thousand to one bundled thousand acres could be reclaimed in this valley. —Pros- pector. More 9ft tch ti«ld. On the southwest end of the White Tank mountains, and 6 miles from Buckeye, Messrs, Roberts and Kilraid are opening up one of the richest gold in the territory. The discovery was made some time since, and the gentlemen have been steadily at work, under somewhat discouraging |circuinstances, devel oping a property, which, if it holds out as well as it has b r *gun, will make its fortunate owners as rich as any unselfish man could desiro. They have sunk a shaft 100 feet deep already, and are drifting to connect with the main working shaft which will be 9x5 feet. The vein upon which they are working so steadily varies from two to four feet in width and averages from SIOO to S3OO per ton in gold. The gentlemen who reports the discov ery is an old prospector, and has long si ce passed “tenderfoot” pe non, in which all that glitters is gold. He says that he sat at the mouth of the shaft three hours du ring which time ore was being hoisted to tho surface, and every bucket of dirt contained varying quantities of free gold. In addition to this claim Messrs. Welsh and Bilatho of Goldfield, (the latter gentleman is superin tendent of the famous Mammoth mine) have five claims located on the extension of the ledgo being worked by Roberts and Kilraid. An average run of the ore extract ed fiom these claims shows S6O per ton in gold. Much activity is being shown by prospectors in the vicinity of these strikes and .we will be au thorized to report a number of other important discoveries.—Flor ence Tribune. A city election is coming on in Phoenix and the usual amount of wire pulling will no doubt be in dulged in. It is fortunate that this city election comes on at this time. It will enable the political bosses of Maricopa County who all reside in Phoenix, to practice for the coming fall election. It may be, however, that the torch bearers out in the alfalfa districts will not fall into line this fall as they have been wout to do. The miserly millionaire Russell Sage has been compelled to blow in some of the surplus by paying te Laidltfw the neat little sum of $25,000. A dynamiter threw a bomb at Mr. Sage and he forced. Laidlaw between him and the bomb. The explosion of the bomb injured Mr. Laidlaw so that he was laid up for repairs for a long time and Sage refused to assist him in any way. The Prospector sayc the Indians of Northern Arizons have a boome rang branding iron. It is made of light steel and placed on the head of an arrow. Then with unerring aim it is shot with such force that it cuts into the flesh and leaves a mark and when it heals it looks like it had been burned. President Cleveland has an nounced that he will entirely ignore the charges against Gov. Hughes by his enemies. And the band played Annie Rooney and Johnnie comes marching home. The “Army of the Commonweal” is marching on to Washington. Just what that grand aggregatidn of the unemployed expect to accom plish we are at a loss to understand. No. 32.
