Apache ~ Yuma Counties Arizona Newspapers, 1894

Population 59,620. Arizona has an area of 113,920 square miles, and is situated in the valley of the Colorado. The soil, even on the alkaline plains, is very fertile when irrigated. The mountainous land is quite well adapted to wool-growing and stock-raising. The principal crops are corn, wheat and barley. There are large deposits of minerals in the Territory. Gold, silver, copper, lead, iron, salt, borax, etc., are abundant, and the mining and the working of gold, silver, copper and lead ores is at present the leading industry. Immense quarries of building stone have recently been opened near Flagstaff, and large quantities shipped to Los Angeles, and used in the construction of many of the substantial buildings that are going up there. All kinds of fruit known to tropical climates reach perfection in the southeast section of the Territory. The city of Phoenix has become quite celebrated as a health resort. The estimated value of all taxable property, taken from the Territorial Board of Equalization, is about $30,000,000.
