Editor Guardian: Did you over mount tho baby train at Clifton bent on a trip for Moronci? you have? well, so have I. I did it this morning, and I noted tho genial countonanco of tho veteran conductor-engineer, Arbucklo, who put up tho first engine that ever ran on tho baby guago road. I noted, after starting, tho many curves and very stoop grade of tho road, tho water in Chaso creek colorod blue with copper. A herd of goats feeding whoro the cows and horses could not go. I noticed that tho train had to stop for tho baby ongino to got its breath- I noticed tho other train . Mr. Gambols, coining behind. I noticed no I didn't, for a cinder had stoppod tho noticing process, but when my lookers woro ready to servo mo again,tho othor train had come up and was puffing away behind, helping us along, but wo aro now at tho foot of incline whore wo meet tho general Marion Gillis, who novor refusod to give you a rido up the inclino and never refused a cigar (traveling public take notice) Well two cars aro about ready to start up tho inclino and wo take our seat on tho platform on tho front of tho car, that is about ono foot square. Wo are admonished, if wo woro nover a passenger on the inclino before. Not to raiso our heads abovo tho car whilo passing through tho tunnol, as wo might in that caso bo forced to part with it. Tho signal comos from tho top of the inclino, "all is ready" and tho start is made. Wo oxperienco just a littlo excitement, similar I suppose, to that iolt by tho India tigor hunters, or to that in going up in a captivo baloon. On tho top of tho inclino which is 3,000 ft. long wo meet tho good naturod Mr. Chapman, tho man at tho holm, who gives us a hearty hand shako, also MivNichols, Supt. of tho Longfellow mine, who had a closo call for his lifo, a short timo ago, by a of tho mine that covered him complotoly except his head; he was taken out badly bruised, but ho has so far recovered as to bo ablo to bo around 'tending to tho business of tho mine. Wo also met Henry Fowler, formorly of tho valloy, who is now ono of Mr. Nichols' ablo lioutonants. Wo next enter tho cab of tho baby train, on top of tho inclino in company with tho ongineer, Mr McLoan,and wo aro soon in Mor onci. Hero wo meet Al. Browor who is J. P., Geo. L. Bouse, Dr. Davis, Mr. Church president of tho Dotroit Copper Co., Walter Boll, night-foreman of tho Company's minos, and many others. Moronci has a very neat reading room and library, whoro tho currant literature of tho daj' is always on file, a splendid place to pass tho leisuro hours. What a nest of humanity wo find. Thoro aro upwards of a thousand souls and more than 300 school children. A fow days since thoro was quito a burn-out at tho top of tho inclino; six or sovon Mexican shanties took firo and burned, completely up. Miokle.

TnTTT" TIie'Boys are Working Hard to Slake It The Most Attractive Place In the County. The Cluff Bros., of Pima, aro now working on thrco largo reser voirs on their ranch, about eleven miles west of Safford, at tho baso of old Graham, and expect to have them finished in time to empond a portion of tho spring floods as they come down Ask creok. The larger of these, when finished, will cover about 12 acres of ground, and tho stono wall, which is being constructed inside of a heavy levy, at the mouth of tho reservoir, will bo about 20 feot high. Tho next largest will cover about 5 acres, whilo tho smallest will embrace about 2 acres, the levies to bo constructed in tho same way as the larger ono. Tho water will bo ta kon from those rcsorvoirs by means of flood-gates placed in tho bottom of tho levies. This is a move in tho right di rection; but tho Cluff boj's do not intend to stop lioro, as noxt year thoy oxpect to tunnol into the mesas to see whether water can bo procured in that way or not, and if they aro successful it will bo a great thing for tho valloy, for if water can be obtained in this way at this point thoro is no reason why it cannot bo found by tunneling in- to any of tho largo mesas adjacont to the valloy. it t can be onco demonstrated that water ci found in this simple mann bo the means of bringing t of now sterile acros undor tion. These boys have been la tYe vnoro rr 41m il1 niiflP otw AW. rvilsd UU btlU V1U 1UI1 JttilVlls I trying to mako somothingof it, and now their labors aro about to bo crowned with success. They have about 800 acres of good land and thoy don't mean to bo satisfied until thoy socuro water in sufficient quantities to irrigate it all. They have about thirtyfivo hundred living fruit trees of different kinds, tho most of which were planted out last year. Aside from their farming interests, thoy have been laboring for the past two years in the construc tion of a wagon road to tho top of Mt. Graham, which will be completed by tho middle of .May, and by tho 15th of June thoy will havo in running order, a first-class saw mill, planted amidst tho towering pines on tho top of tho mountain. The building of this road was a gigantic undertaking, and many a time has it been remarked that tho road would nover be finished unless someone with capital would inter est themselves in it and put it through. But tho fact that tho road is now almost completed, and part of the machinory for tho mill is now at Pima, demonstrates tho fact that push and muscle is about all that is required to accomplish anything in Arizona, an abundanco of which these boys possess. Another New itullroad. During 1894, Arizona led tho United States in length of railway lino built, her mileage being 159. Of this tho greator amount 93 miles, was upon tho Santa Fo Prescott & Phcnix, with 20 miles for tho "United Vordo (fePacific and 44 miles for tho Gila Valley Globo &North- crn Tho last named road starts from Bowie Station, on tho Southern Pacific runs northward to 28 miles, thonco west to Pima 1G miles. Stopped it has been at this point for some months waiting tho passage by congress of a right of permission across tho San Carlos Indian reservation. This has beon secured and construction work will at onco b'o resumed, not to stop till tho rich copper camp of Globo, 140 miles from Bowio is reached. Tho lino taps the fertile valley of tho upper Gila. A spur of twenty miles would penetrate a grand timber district, and coal of excellent quality lies ucar tho lino of tho road south of San Carlos Tho cattlo industry will also furnish traffic. Globe district, ono of tho most highly mineralized spots on tho earth, will furnish an immenso amount of freight. It is belcived that on the completion of the railroad at least ten copper furniccs will be put in operation at Globe, meaning a freight traffic of 200 tons per day in coke, bullion, and supplies. Added to this there are in the district many small high grade silver ledges, tho ores of which can bo shipped by rail at a proht. The road, will therefore bo a money maker from the start. It is a standard gauge, independently constructed by William Garland and is well constructed -and equipped. Gazette. at PMT?' JTCTCTr A nice, eozv -"--" . ' : .i it:.,..

The prico of silver advanced 1 3-8 cents an ounce, following a similar advanco in London, due to tho beginning of hoarding here and abroad in anticipation of financial transactions when China bogins to pay the war indem sMwHKfTTat.n'a .wytoaBHBBBJWiwBySMaAaJtiii4 Mr.SiaMMMiaAj.Al I I IBM I II BM IM I m I I II II B nity demanded by Japan of 8250' 000,000 or 300,000, 000. Whether China will havo to pay in silver or in gold or in whatever coin, the effect upon the United States will bo immediate. If gold is demanded it is feared that the rato of exchange on London will suddenly shoot up and tho treasury will bo subject to a now and greater drain than any in its history a drain that Morgan and Belmont will bo powerless to stop. Long-headed financiers in Wall street said there is a possibility of some very important results when this big war debt to Japan comes to be paid. Japan may propose to como and sit in the Chineso custom houses and by import and export duties help herself. England will at onco object and proffer to accept a Chineso bond and advanco the cash. If it is to bo silver in payment a squeeze throughout China may produce it, or a rovival of silver mining may supply it, but a demand for gold by Japan will di rect attention instantly to tho ono source of open gold supply in tho known United states treasury.

After the happy couple had re ceived tho congratulations of friends and relatives, tho company proceeded to tho dining room, and all did justice to tho good things with which tho tables wero loaded. After all had eaten their fill tho wedding cako was cut and distrib uted by tho brido.

Well, it is over; tho last strain of music has died away, tho rumblo of carriage wheels aro growing faint in the distance Another couple, with high hopes and bright dreams for tho futuro has been launched upon tho sea of matrimony for good or ill.

It is for frco silver and Statehood and has the best wishes of tho Courier in its struggle for Arizona and itself. Prescott Courier. Wo acknowledge tho receipt of tho first number of tho Graham Guardian, a seven column folio, published at Safford, Graham Co.

Arizona Populist. Tho first number of the GRAnAM Guardian came to hand this weok. It is full of reading matter and is a compliment to its editors. Prospector. The Graham Guardian, tho now Graham county paper, published at Safford, made its appearanco last week. It is a neat looking paper and probably will give the Bulletin many a hard rub for the official printing in Graham county Western Liberal. safford has a paper. The Graham Guardian, of ford, Graham county, is tho last weekly to join the newspaper list of tho Southwest. It is a 7 column, four page paper, nicely printed and containing a full budget of news of tho towns of tho upper Gila valloy. Tho publishers aro John J. Birdno and Harry B. Fox, though neither aro listed as editor. It would seem that Graham county with her large and concentrated population could well afford two newspapers, and to the now sheet, if well managed, should como an abundant sharo of success.
