Almost every ( ther county in the territory is construct ing one or more on paper. How is this? Laird, of Nebraska, has introduced a bill authorizing the President to call out the militia in Arizona and New Mexico. In a properly conducted movement of this character will be found the true solution of the present Indian troubles. Another proposed railroad gonewrongl Phoenix has at last come to the conclu sion that the Maricopa railroad scheme is a humbug and that Salisbury & Co. are holding on to the franchise in order to sell out at a profit to somebody. Next! Tun feeling induced by the discussion of the silver question is likeiy to bring about new affiliations between various sections of the country. On this ques tion, the West and South are arrayed against the East. Taking into consider ation the wonderfully rapid growth of the western country, the outcome of the dis pute can hardly be considered a matter of doubt. Governor Zulick has at last found an apologist, ''he Phoenix Gazette comes out with a two-column editorial, in which it endeavors to show that the criticism of the Governor by the press of the Territory is part of a desperate struggle, which is now being made, to break the influence of Zulick's adminis tration and thwart his efforts at reform. Severe comment is also made on the extravagant expenditures authorized by the last Legislature. When it is consid ered that Phoenix, by most persistent and questionable efforts, succeeded in se curing the lion's share of the appropri ations'in question, the force of a protest from this quarter is very much weak ened.
