W. D- MORTON. A. P. BHEWMAN. MORTON & SIIEWMAN Publishers. Advertising rates made known on application. Friday, August 21, 1896. The Mesa Populists were repre sented at the Territorial Conven tion by Brigg M. Johnson and Wm. D. Mcßrayer. Bucky O’Neil was nominated for Delegate. The Spaniards in Cuba have a hard time of it, between the har rassing tactics of the Cubans and the deadly ravages of the cholera and yellow fever. There aie not a few of the Spanish statesmen who favor a cessation of the war. Elsewhere we publish the card of L. H. Orme, announcing himself a candidate for the office of Sheriff, subject to the decision of the Demo cratic County Convention. Mr. Orme is well and favorably known to the electors of this county. He has made an efficient and conscien tious officer, and no doubt will re ceive the unanimous nomination of his party. We publish this week the card of J. W. Crenshaw, announcing himself a candidate for the offiee of District Attorney, subject to the decision of the Democratic County Convention. Judge Crenshaw is a lawyer of ability and has held several responsible offices, being now United States Commissioner He is a prominent Democrat and is well known td our Mesa people. No better choice could be made by his party for this important office. Arizona ought to be prosperous the coming twelve months. The abundant rains have put new life into the stock business by clothing hill and mountain and plain with an abundance of rich grasses and the * prices of cattle maintain at least a fair average. The mining industry especially in the line of gold and copper, never manifested greater activity, while the farming interests promise to thrive under the influence of a great sufficiency of water for irrigation. Arizona onght to prosper, and she will if her people take hold of the oppor tunities which nature has so kindly placed before them. _______ The Denver Republican is pleased to compliment us as fol lows: “ The irrigation congress, which will meet in Phoenix, Ariz., next December, will be well enter tained by the people of that town. They are wide awake and enter prising and they will be glad of the opportunity to show visitors their valley and its wonderful orchards. The subject of irrigation has been allowed to drop out of sight in many parts of the west, but in terest in it will be revived by this congress if a good session is held. In Arizona much attention was given to irrigation several years ago, and a large area of good land has been reclaimed. This is being planted to orchards in the country about Phoenix, and it is probable that the same policy will be fol lowed in other localities in the southern part of the territory. The tropical climate makes the cultivation of fruit especially suitable. I It is safe to assume that the wagon road from Mesa to Globe will be opened at an early date. Supervisors Priest and Kimball of this county returned this week from Globe, having traversed the entire distance over the line of the proposed road. The distance will be about 85 miles, and about the only work to be done over the entire distance with the exception of about 16 miles, will be to clear off the' growths of light brush. There will be about sixteen miles of light grading, and when the work is done it is said this will be one of the best roads in the terri tory. This county will be largely benefitted by the construction of this road, in the way of furnishing a ready market for large quanti ties of the product raised in this valley Globe is already a large consumer of produce and the rapidity with which that camp is again coming to the front is an assurance that in future it will de mand a far greater supply of food for both man and beast, and Mesa farmers and gardeners are amply prepared to supply on short notice, every demand. The Populist County Convention met this week at Phoenix and nominated their county ticker. Amongthe candidates nominated we notice the names of three prom inent citizens of Mesa and vicinity, viz., Judge Woy, for the Council; T. P. Banta, for County Recorder, and C. O. Case for Probate Judge. All of these gentlemen are well and favorably known to our people. The people of Mesa cannot too highly appreciate the substantial invulnerable headgate at the head of their canal. With over 150,000 inches of water beating against the solid masonry and timbers it stands as firm as the rock of Gib raltar. One attendant there is able to work the monster gate so as to permit any desired amount of the flood to pass through. FOR SHERIFF.
