The Bannock Indians are on ' the warpath against the whites. ’The people of Mesa will Wel lcome the shrill music of "the loco * motive when the P., T. & M gets * here. Ty takes influence to make governors, hut what a pile of “in- Booence ’it takes to get them re moved. "The trial of Durrant is in pro gress in San Francisco. The selection of a jury will occupy con -tiderable time yet. “Another governor in two 'Weeks’ has ceased to refrain, and the governor continues to saw wood at the old stand. There are now $10,000,000 on •deposit in the banks of Los An gales. When the boom of ‘B7 began there were between $3,000,000 and $4,- <OOO,OOO on deposit. Arizona naturally possesses greater resources, in numl>er and importance, than any other state or territory in the union. There is now, too,* greater activity in the development of these resources than ever before. The Free Press, nor its editors' are muzzled nor taken in by an octopus or devilfish. When we are muzzled, taken in, or swallowed, we’ll be able to show up more boodle than we can by depending upon delinquent subscribers. Sufficient money is said to have been guaranteed to start another evening daily in Phoenix to be Democratic in politics. The material is to be ordered at once, among which will be two Mer ganthaler type-setting machines. Whether it will till a long felt want will develop later.

Dor rington, who once again tills the newspaper field alone with that veteran paper, the Sentiuel. . Harvey, author of Coin's Finan cial School, in his debate with Ex-Oongres*man Horr comes in on the home stretch several lengths ahead. Daring the entire course of the debate he kept cool and un horsed his antagonist at every turn. Horr, on the other hand, met the unanswerable arguments of his adversary, with Only invective and abase. ,He lost hie temper and foamed and famed and fussed like j a dyspeptic school boy. The con test will aid in educating the peo ple on the financial problem and the result will be favorable to free coinage. The fight is now On.brys, and the free silver coinage * masses are going to win. Those who have worked them selves into t.he belief that Arizona is asleep, should awake and look around them. There is more ra;l -road building in the territory than m any other state or territory of four times the population. Mining wns nover so active, and every camp is humming with activity. The stoek interests -share in the genera) prosperity and our farmers have reaped golden harvests this year. Building booms in every city, town and hamlet, and cozy new homes dot the charming land scape in every direction. Arizona is coming to the front with a bound and every one should take a hand in pushing h«r to the front. Instead of kicking aud growling, everyone should put his shoulder to the wheel aud aid in doing some thing for the upbuilding of Mesa and its surrounding country. The ontlook for a general revival of business throughout the country has not been better for years, the improvement in the east approach ing even to a boom. The railroads are taxed to their utmost and many of them have voluntarily increased the w*ge3 of their employees. Mesa is ia position to invite home seekers.
