The visit of General Alger and friendsjto' Phoenix a few days ago, means touch more to this valley than is generally known. General Alger i* wcfcth ’several.million dollars and the men who accompanied him on the trip represented‘ nearly ohe ; Hundred uiiT lion dollars and they did not come to this city on a business tour; it was strictly on business and such business: as w jll r'esuit greatly to the unbuild ing of the Salt River Valley, and it is nothing more nor less than a water storage proposition for this valhy The enterprise has been before eastern capitalists for rr.ne years, but not until theNewYoik syndicate got hold of the canals did the proposition take shape. Marketing the bonds, of couri-e, is tlie first thing iu lino with the success of the scheme, as it will require between two and three rail li ,»\ dollars. * The Gazette is ordditahly informed that the bonds for the construction of the reservoir have been engraved, passed upon by the attorneys of a large trust company and only await the approval of the General Alger party. General Alger and friends were delighted with the valley and we are informed »>y parties that are familiar with the facts in the that proposition |s assured and wo*k of cons* ruction will nurely bet in the coming fall This will be glorious news to the peop'e of this valley who have, stood steadfast for years behind every enterprise that tends in auy iVay j to adyaufte the interests of the valley) of the .Salt River. It will mean j prosperity for the, farmers and to the merchant. It -Ail! mean abundance of water for all iirgution purposes, which means that the lands iu this, valley c*n produce enough hay, grain, fruit and vegetables to supply a popu lation cf 300,000 people and the building of the reservoir referred to, will make Phoen'x a city of ,>O,OOO people. Th ie is nothing like unity of purposf and push to bring succ-.ss. This we have in Phoenix. While, I like every other country, we have men who are not very progressive, yet our citizens as a whole aie aljve to the advancement of our country and have given’ their lime and money to this end. We believe the construction of this reservoir proposit on is now an assured fact and we look forward to better and more prosperous days for Phoenix and the Salt River valley.— Gaze!

V • Two men were murdered^at New River Station last Thursday. It was a shocking crime and has aroused the whole country. The victim's name* are Olson and Stewart and they had onl/ been in the county a short time. Their bodies were brought to Fhoei-ix for burial. The murderers are thought to be Mexicans and outlaws. They passed through our town last Friday «nd camped out near the residence of i W. H. Wallace. Sheriff Murray and * his deputies were close after them but lost ’ the trail out on the desert and the murderers are still at large. There is some talk of lynching them if they are caught. We acknowledge with pleasure the receipt of a pamphlet published by the Sonora Railway Company, and , entitled ‘Sonora, the Empire State of , the West Mexican Coast. It is full of intfresting information regarding , that country and is writ fen in us bright , style that is very attr*c ive. Dps- , criptions of economic and industrial < conditions are interwoven with those | of towns and country in’ such away , that or.e does not tire of ei«her. The | book is replete with half-tone eb- , gravings of a high order, which add much to the interest of the subject toat.er.
