The democratic and the dem* ocrati.c territorial platform, each are somewhat wrathy in th« ir ideas of re or-iiiug territorial institutions, espe cially .making a target of the board of control, ..dyfcc^tin 4 its abolishment at oncePCy the uext legislature; The Tucson Star, u democratic and published by fx-Oovernor Hughes, a • democrat, cornea to the front in de fense of the mantainance of that in stitution, and backs up his argument with the following sentiments; ‘•Those citizens who believe the hoatd of oontrol is not a good thing for tjfie territory and who made a speciality of its condemnation during the campaign should specifically state where this board is injurious to the taxpayer of the territory. Let them consider the following facts: The creation ot the board of control abolished twelve commissioners, three secretaries and treasurers, as well as some other sinecu tes, in all not lose than eighteen officials, every one of which were receiving salaries or p~r diems and all the commissioners mile age, amounting in all to more than #25,000 annually. All of the work of these commissioaers and their secreta ries and their subordinates is done b, /he board of control, with two ap pointees. The citizen member of the board and the secretaries of the bo;rd amounts to a total cost to the territory not to egpeed $3,000 annually. The auditor and governor are salaried offi cials and receive no extra corop-snii tion ns members of the board, *• Ihe objection that has been urged that the centralization of all those official duties in one board constituted as it is today gives the governor too much power. This is not a valid ob jection. as he exercised much greater powar under the od regime than now, for under the oid system he ap pointed the commissioners of four distinct boards, also their secratarie* and qt|ier sul»ordinates, every one of whom was as much under his control and subject to his removal as the auditor and the citizen member of the board. The governor exercised more power, inasmuch as he formerly ap pointed this larce array of officials, and now but one, the citizen member of the board, as his auditor is an fx officio member of the board. “This board of control can and does perform every duty these respective boards performed in pot to exceed ten days in each quarter. The saving to the territory is not less than $25,000 annually. Again, if there is any speculation or dishonesty of any k'.nd in the management of, the territorial institutions it can more readily to discovered uodt-r the board of control than if fifteen or more officials were respoitsiole.” t> 1 * ' """ The suggestion of Judge Stilwell that the lands of this valley be bond - ed to build storage reservoirs to re claim the thousands of acres of arid 'ands yet ur.recliyinied, should receive the serious consideration of the people of the valley. The matter has been discussed before, yet no definite steps have yet been taken toward the con summation of this very desirable and important project. |f we are to see a large, prosperous commonwealth built up on the miles and miles of fertile land, we must encourage the const* uction of storage reservoirs, for through that medium only can that object be accomplished Hon. E. E EUinwoed has placed a graphophone in his law oT ces in Flag* staff the first machine of the kind to bp used in the Territoiy. It is not nt»-* derstnod that this does away with rbs pretty typewrit** fy *Uf mean*, ' The following is a report made by 001. F. D. Baldwin, of the Inspecting Bureau of tho War Department on the Territorial regiment now station ed at Albany, Ga„ 001. M. H, McCord commanding. This regiment should be equipped with the best arms in existence, as its ranks are recruited from the truly western country, where every man is an ex client shot, and perfectly familiar with fire arms. As a regiment, the rank and file are composed of the finest body of men I have found in the volunteer organi zation. Generally speaking, the of ficers are attentive to their duties and shew in a marked degree a desire to perform them, J consider this regiment with a few exceptions noted, which are of small moment, ready for field service. The transportation of* this regiment is in excellent condition and a.I supplies under cover. All sinks Bre clean and wholesome; hos pital in good thape. good tentage and full number of hospital stewards and attendants in attendance. Surgeon reports little sickness, and only four deaths since the organization of the regiment, nearly five months since, which is a most remarkable record and speaks volumes for the robust ness of the men and the care and vigilance of the officers." J, B. Barkley died Tuesday fore noon after a long illness. He was aged about 39 years and leaves a wife and children and a large number of relatives to mourn him. Re had re sided for a number of years in this valley and wig highly respected as a mun, a citizen and a neighbor. The funeral t?uk place Wednesday under the auspices of Mesa Camp, Wood men of the World of which Order he was a member in good standing, assist d by Rev. Banks of the Baptist church this city. The interment took place in the Double Butte cenetery bt low Tempo and there was a large attendance. C. H, Knapp, au old time and highly esteemed resident of Phoenix, died at his home in that city last Sumd >y evening, suddenly. He came to Phoenix in 188.1. and since that time hid filled the position of clerk ot deputy clerk of the district court. He was well known to almost every one in the county wfio have transact ed business in the couit house, and he was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him. Spain lias acceded to everv demand made by the United Stave* in the set. lenient of the war claims. This country is to pay to Spain twenty million dollars, and Spain is to re linquish Cuba and cede to the United States, Porto Rico, the entire Philip pine group and cne of the Ladrones islands. Spain protest* d against the cession of the Philippine group, but felt compelled to yield. L. Salter and wife expeot to leave in a few days for New York city where they will reside in future, Mr Salter having accepted a lucrative position as stenographer in that city. Ho has held the position of stenog rapher for the Oonsolid ited Canal Oo here for several years. His successor here will acpouipany Dr. Chandler from the east, and they are expected to arrive in a few days. It seems that there was a little “onpleasantness” at the Thanksgiving foot ball game between the Normal boys and the Phoenix High School team. If there wasn’t a free for a’l scrap, there was something the wicked world would call a devil of a time generally. The ending of the game was sudden and the bets haven’t been paid off yet. The crowded condition of our Mesa schools suggests to our trustees and people that more school room is reed ed. The natter is now being serious ly considered and the reßult will in all probability be the construction of ea second story to our school bouse. It can now be said that the sun never sets on the United States. Nathan Brondage is ho.nu from his business tvh> to Globe. One of *hu gieatest mistakes made by eastern capitalists, says the West ern J/ining World, is to seek only for developed mines to purchase. As r general thing, owners of mines which can be worked at a substantial profit have no need to look for them. It ir for this reason that those who come to the west for mines are disappoim ed; that while they are offered partly developed or opened properties, the paying or going mines are not then for sale, except at what they consider high prices. After a man or company has prospected, opened and brought to a producing point a good mine, it is worth as much to them as any one, and the owners are unwilling to sell except at good price In fact, such prop erties are seldom effered for sale. People have to bunt them up, and then have hard work to get a bond on them, the owners generally piefer- ( ring to keep on working. There are ( great numbers of “going" mines with the necessary machinery iu the west, j but the owners do not let them be “peddled” around for promoters to bargain with. JLf anyone wants them . they must make a good offer and be prepared to prove their intention of actual purchase. Otherwise proposi tions will not be entertained. There are plenty of good properties’for sale which need development, machinery reduction works, etc., but most of the dividend-paying ones are held for the legitimate profit to be made from mining operations.-—Western Mining World. The Globe Times says that while on upper Salt river Judge W. H. Stilwcll viewed the reservoir site that Phoenix will eventually be compelled to build to insure a permanent supply of water for the land now in cultiva tion on both si es of the river. The Judge says he had no idea what a stupendous reservoir could be made at this point. With an expenditure of S2,OdQ;OOO water, can be stored to reclaim all the land from the Super stition mountains down to Gila Bend. This enterprise would afford security to the ranchers and doub e the price of every acre of land in the valley. The power at the falls could bo util** lzed to run every smelter and mill in Gila bounty, and work low grade ores cheaper than at any other point in the country. The reservoir will have to be built, even if it requires the mortgaging of every ranch in Belt river valley When this storage system is accomplished Phoenix will rival Los Angeles in wealth and pop ulation. As a proof of the rising in value of agricultural lands as well as real es tate in general in Pima county, it is on'.v necessary to mention the faot that one of the leading business men asked SIO,OOO for 1000 acres of des ert land in tbe vicinity of Tucson a few days ago. That the land in ques tion is worth that and perhaps more there is no question, especially as watep can be developed with the ex penditure of only a few thousand dollars.—Citizeu. A newspaper whose columns over flow with advertisements of business men has more influence in attracting the attention to and building up a city or town than any other agency that could be employed. People go where there is business. Oapital and labor will locate where there is an enterpriaing community. No power on earth is so strong to build up a own as a newspaper well patronized, and its power should be appreciated. —Arizona Sentinel.
