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
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,
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.
