As to the effect this may have upon
the general prosperity of the country
is problematical. Many tried and
true democratic statesmen and nearly
all republican statesmen claim that
ounttv needs is rest from
wild and fanatical agitation and a re-
turn to sound business principles in
governmental affairs such as we have
not had for years: and in addition there
to the republicans, claim that the gov-

Everybody was a producer. No drones

Among the tirst things that must be
seen by the visitor is Temple block.
It is a ten acre square surrounded by
a massive wall fifteen feet high and
five feet thick. In it stands the mag-
tigures are official and result from the
observation made by the government
during a period of 20 years The city
lacks nothing in equip" '*jt. yet it is
well and econimically governed. It
has a millon dollar city hall and court
house combined. Two electric light
companies: one gas company, and in
addition to that natural gas for pur-
poses of illumination and fuel. The
natural gas is piped into the city from I Hiv-
a group of wells seventeen mik ^ away.
It has a magnificant and well appointed
sanitarium where you ean bathe in
medicated waters heated over natures
fires which is piped into the city from
the hot springs three miles distant.
Its business streets are paved with
I*tah asphaltum and there are over
one hundred miles of well kept av-
enues lined with trees, suitably paved
and l.'J2 feet in width. The city owns
its own water system valued at $3,000-
000. Two competing companies oper-
ate 80 miles of electric rail road. It
has 2'1 public and l"> private schools
and as handsome*school houses as any
in the country: the Territorial Univer-
sity, Deaf and Dumb Institute, Normal
Institue and a woman's Home is locat-
ed here. Three excellent hospitals;
thirty benevolent societies: thirty five
churches; three dailey newsappers and
eight or ten weekly newspapers;six
public libraries: two of the finest
theatres in the west: loO acres in parks
six rail roads; two hundred manufac-
tories; and some of the largest mercan-
tile houses between the Mississippi
river and the Pacfic ocean. The
climate is perfect, with as charming
and cultivated society as can be found
anywherj. It contains more beautiful
homes and fewer shabby ones than any
other city of its size we ever visited.
There are no vacant houses or stores
to suggest business dullness; there are
no sigrsof a departed boom, but on the
Contrary and notwithstanding the gen-
eral depression and hard times there
is a sign of a comming boom. Tbat
it will at no distant day become one of
the great centers of trade, population
and wealth of the country no one well | of which number six hav
informed as to its growth and environ-
ment will deny.
To the pleasure seeker: to the in-
valid and to the man with money to
invest it holds out more flattering
promises than any other city we have
any knowledge of. Its assessed valua-
tion is $.'15,000,000 and the annual tax

W. .J. Montrief on the streets and cut
and bruised his face up shamefully.
Montrief is an old man. and the chair-
man of the populist central committee,
while Hudspeth is a stout, active young
man. The difficulty grew out of an
election circular. Much indignation

fidence with confidence in the adminis-
tration. with confidence in the
president elect, with confidence in the
principles of protection and reciproc-
ity and what is in the way of an imme-
diate return to an era of general pros-
perity to the whole country? We
have sufficient confidence in the wisdom
and patriotism of the republican party
to believe that they will yet give to the
people free silver. Their financial
wisdom did not fail them during the
cruslal test of sixty-one to sixty-live,
neither did their patriotism fade away
