A. Redewiel in the Phoenix
Gazette has the following '„o say
about Jerome, the great copper
camp: Jerome continues to enjoy
the distinction of being the best
and livliest mining town in Nor
thern Arizona, its title to the
leading mining centre of the ter
ritory being disputed on'iy by the
other two equally great towns of
Bisbee and Globe. The output in
gold and coppet of the United
Verde continues to be umtenve’
The pay roll of the 600 ruen now
employed averages $42,000 monthly
As the company will soon have an
even 1,000 men at work the abun
dance and inexhaustible supply of
rich ore justifying it, the monthly
pay roll will probably reach
$70,000. The Jerome can lay
undisputed claim to b? the richest,
tirst and largest mining town in
Arizona, The place is increasing
rapidly, the population footing up
fully 1,500 people. The writer,
who has beeu away from this place
only five months, noticed over eight
new habitations, Town lots, that
is on the side of a steep and rocky
hill, command big prices. Mr.
Ponofrio, of Phoenix, who has
been in Jarome one week, en
deavoring to open up a business,
finds that a piece of a lot, 25x100,
commands SI,OOO. After he has
bought the lot, he will have to cut
into the steep and rocky mountain
side and excavate 100,000 tons of
rock and dirt, to level the same
making it suitable to build
thereon. This sho AS the cost and
difficulty of obtaining a business
place in Jerome.
THE SUGAR BEET ZONE.
Arizona ought to become one of
the principal beet sugar producing
regions of the United Slates* It
lies within the zone designated by
Dr. Wiley as the sugar beet zone.
Then there is the evidence of suc
cessful production on the west by
California, on the north by Utah,
on the east by New Mexico.
Touching this matter Director
Devol of the Arizona Station says
in bulletin 23: “It is reasonable to
expect that throughout the greater
part of Arizona the sugar beet may
be successfully grown. Neatly the
whole of the territory lies within
the zone designated by Dr. Wiley,
in his report of 1890, as the sugar
belt, the southern part running
somewhat south of it. This belt
takes u sinuous course across the
United States, doubling upon itself
in the Rocky mountains and Pacific
noast regions, following the isotherm
of 70 degrees Fanreuheit for the
months of Junf*, July and August
;ad extending for a distance of one
hundred in )<*« upon either side of
this isotherm. I:nee the publica
tion of that report the urea- within
which sugar baets may be prolit
ably grown has been extended in
bo’b directions. Though the per- /
eentage oi sugar may no f be *o
great, on an average, as in more
northern climates, the advantage rs
a longer season during which the
crop may be grown and harvested
and the longer time open for work
ing the roots in the factory as wel
more than compensate for the small j
reduction in sugar content. In cold
climates it is necessary to have a
factory of sufeient capacity to
work up the whole beet root crop
within a short space of cime, or the
roots must be buried in a silo to
keep from frost, thus entailing an
extra handling. While in warm
climates, such as prevail over the
greater part of Arizona, the beets
may be left where they grow until
needed at the factory.
