It is so easy to sit in tile shade and dream and watch the country progress. The coast pilgrims and those who sojourned among the pines in our own territory are gradually return ing home. Are we going to take any steps to help m entertaining the visiting members of the Irrigating Congress in December 1 ? Our city dads are moving on the right line in having the streets cleaned up* Every progressive citi zen will second their efforts. The District Court in Phoeuix is ready now to grant naturalization papers to all who are entitled thereto and who mav apply up to the Ist Monday in October. : • If the merchants and business men of a town want business they must bid for it. The era of. old happy-go-lucky methods has gone by. Enterprise must characterize the business methodsof to-day, Mesa should be very much in terested in the choice of members of the Board of Supervisors. We have at present a Mesa member who looks out well for the best interests ot the county and it is’to be hoped his successor will be equally efficient. Our old friend Hon. Eb. Wil liams of Nogales, delivered an ora tion in Spanish in Nogales Mexico on Independence day The Judge .is a polished gentleman and few excel him as an orator. His speech on this occasion was a g j m of elo quence, and was listened to with enthusiastic satisfaction We cannot fail to admire the alacrity with which our people re spond to every measure proposed for the bene3t of this town and section. There was not a soul at tended the meeting Monday night called to discuss the Globe road. .The circus next Monday will draw a good crowd however. The Turkish question still con tmues to pester the nations The Turks continue to slaughter the Armenians while the civilized na tions simply hold up their hands in horror. England threatens to inter fere single handed, but she feels convinced such a step would involve her in war with the other Euiopean nations. Nature has done her part for Mesa, and now it remains for a combination of enterprising people to finish up the excellent work. In the process of pushing this country and town to the front the people must be united, otherwise we will remain in a state of complete rest uninterrupted by sound of saw or hammer or note of progress, The Navajo Indians, numbering about 20 000, are having a big powwow and dance on the San Juan river. They extended an in vitation to the whites of that sec tion of the country to join them in their religious festival - They ex pect to heal all the sick that pre sent themselves, either white or In dian, A pari of the treatment con sists of the patient s occupation of a sweatbox for nine days, more or less.—Bisbee Orb. IUK outcome of this, as eveiv other section of country rests with its people. Any country peopled with a progressive, enterprising and public spirited population will forge to the front, whatever obstacle mav intervene. A section, no matter bow desirable in every way, will drag along in a come-hanrly-go lucky sort of way, unless its people are wide awake and progressive. It seems from a casual glance at the condition of many of the peo ple throughout the world, that this little world of ours has failed utter ly to fulfil the object of its creation, that is to produce enough of food and clothing for all its inhabitants. Notwithstanding the enormous productive capacity of the earth, thousands of its inhabitants are 8 arving to death. Some few thou andsonly i re wallowing in wealth.
