Mr. Lelhbach, of New Jersey, said in
temperance had never lieen rooted out
bv legislation. From his own personal
observation he was satisfied that in
temperance was on the decline. This
was largely do to tho use of that mild
leverage, beer. To the prohibitionists
as to the fanatics, however, this was
the detested of all stimulants. He
lielioved the substitute proposed by Mr.
Adams would meet the requirements.
There was one sure way in which the
people of Kansas and of "Iowa could got
rid of the original package store, and
that was not to pay or recognize It.
.Mr. Hayes, of Iowa, preferred a little
liberty to a good deal of sentimental
States rights. He contended that the
prohibition of Iowa was enforced and
lie denied from observation made on a
recent visit to his state that there were
original package saloons in Iowa, at
least he had not seen one nor had he
heard of one being there until he re
turned to Washington.
Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, believed in
the constitutionality and propriety of
tlie proposed legislation. This was not a
question of prohibition or high or low
license. It was a question whether
the people in their state organizations
had the right to protect their homes,
firesides and families from unlicensed,
unrestrained, unrestricted rum traffic.
At present, the original nackage
decision might affect the prohibition
states alone, but in a little time all
the states would be infested by
lawless characters, who kept original
nackage stores and license laws and
local option laws would lie violated.
There ought not to le a vote east against
the promised legislation.

WHAT YOU CAN'T MOKTOAOK.
An Iiiiioraut DccUlmi by Jiulgo Tilly on
Ciiicaoo, July 10. A decision was
rendered by J uilgo Tuly yesterday in a
case involving a question of law that
had never been passed upon before by a
court. It was the suit of Ofrenheimer &
Co., manufacturers of sausago casings,
of Chicago and New York, to prevent,
by injunction, George Sayre, a former
employe, from going into the miiiiu
business in Illinois and eighteen other
states, within three years of a date
mentioned and to bo in their employ in
consideration of a contract calling for $1.
Judge Tuly decided that as a result of
modern methods of commerce it made
no difference whether the contract
was to apply to ono or more states, but
that as the complainant was only em
ployed from week to week ho was made
to agree that for $1 and employment for
one week ho would mortgage his liberty
of action and practically his means of
livelihood for three years. The injunc
tion was dissolved.

Secretary Wliulom Is Keiuly to Huy Fifty
Millions or So.
Washington, July 10. Secretary
Windom issued a circular this afternoon
that on Thursday, July 24, proposa'a
will bo received for the sale to tho Gov
ernment of United States bonds of the
Acts of July 14, 1870, and January 20,
ihi. lor the purpose ot supplying in
part the requirements of tlie "sinking
fund for the current fiscal year. Tho
circular of April 17, 1888, under which
tlie daily purchases oi ponds lias here
tofore lieen made, is rescinded.
In explanation of this circular, Secre
tary windom says: "Owing to the
recent light offerings of IkhkIb the sur
plus has rapidly accumulated un
til now it is in round figures
$50,000,000, exclusive of $23,000,000
fractional silver coin. Tho recent
Act of Congress transferring $55,000,000
from the funds for the redemption of
national bank notes makes a large por
tion of this fund also available for the
redemption of bonds. Tho depart
ment is therefore in position to
retire a considable amount of
interest bearing obligations of the
government and the advertisement
issued today is simply intended to in
vite bondholders to name the price at
which they are willing to sell to the
iMvernuient. The amount taken will
icciid largely upon the prices at which
they are offered."

providing for the application of the lor

contention was that the hill is in viola
tion of the general law respecting chari

now in tho hands of a lccciver, he held
that the passage of tho bill was unneces
sary and would prejudice the final de
cision of the Court.

tenhiefer as counsel for M. (iersheim A
Co., yesterday secured the Justice's sig
nature to a perpetual injunction against
the Central Trust Company, C. P.
Huntington, and others, restraining
them from issuing stock of the Houston
it Texas Central railroad, on the ground
that the Trust Company had not made
the promised assessment of seventy
three per cent required by the
plan of reorganization. In reference to
the new assessment of $71.40 a share, it
was declared on Thursday by the trust
company, Judge Dittcnhoefer said, that
the deduction of $1.00 was far from
satisfactory to his clients. It had, he
said been fixed upon by the same
calculations and assessment, the differ
ence being due to theaddition ot interest
and the deduction of earnings in the
hands of the receiver, but it would be
difficult to see how the trust company
could have made any other assessment
without acknowledging thai it had com
mitted a gross wrong on the stockholders
in making the lirst assessment.

Van Wkkt, Ohio, July 10 A bold at
tempt at train robbery was made last
night on the Cincinnati, Jackson and
Michigan Railroad. Three men boarded
the engine of the north-bound passenger
train at Enterprise, Ohio, and attacked
Engineer Vandevender and his fireman
with hammers and coupling-pins, knock
ing both senseless. They did not suc
ceed in stopping the train, however,
probably owing to the plucky light made
by the trainmen, and jumped olf before
leaching Van Wert. The engineer and
firemen were both lying senseless in tho
cab. The locomotive and train, which
should have stopped at Van Wert sta
tion, rushed through the yard at a rate
of twenty-live miles an hour. Here it
collided with a switch engine and En
gineer Vandevender was found dead in
the wreck. The lireinan is still uncon
scious, and it cannot be learned whether
the engineer was killed by the robbers
or met death in the collision. None of
tho passengers were seriously injured.
which is it?
Latkh. Tho fireman will recover.
It is supposed the assault was committed
by an ex-convict, lllair Mock, who
killed Vandevender's son in 1884. En
gineer Vandevender was the chief wit
ness against Mock and the latter had
sworn vengeance. Mock was seen in
the city this morning, but has not been
arrested. During tlio excitement last

Clifton, Ariz., July 10. Nestled
along the San Francisco river in the
mountains of Eastern Graham county
lies the busy little mining camp of
Clifton, Arizona. Being off a direct line
of travel and the mines principally
owned by foreign capitalists, the place is
probably less familiar to the majority of
Arizonans than any othei camp of
considerable imjwrtance in theTerritory.
While not quite as large as the mines of
the Copper Queen Company at Bisbee,
they are very considerable and supiwrt
a most thriving settlement. There are
about 400 men employed in the mines and
smelters and a " population of near
2000 depend upon their labor. As men
tioncd above the projKjrty is owned
mainly by foreign capital, the principal
office of the company being located at
Edinburgh, Scotland. The Superin
tendents of the different departments
such as furnaces, mines, railways, etc.,
are Scotchmen, as are in fact a majority
of the workmen. All are men of educa
tion and culture and jwssessed of that
indomitable Scotch will which knoAS
As evidence of their persistency and
faith in the ultimate success of the
mines may be mentioned the won
derful railroad building at a cost
of hcvcral millions of dollars,
before scarcely any ore had been
taken from the earth. But such persis
tency won finally as it ought always to
First, was built a three-foot gauge
railroad from Ijrdsburg, N. M at a
connection with the Southern Pacific to
Clifton, a distance of Eeventy-one miles.
This road in itself is a giant piece of
engineering, the grade in reaching the
summit of the Peloncillo spur of the
Mogollon mountains, seven miles south
of Clifton, lwiiig forty feet to the
mile and the curves in several places
being on an arc of a circle of 32 .
But the most wonderful piece of en
gineering in connection with this vast
proiierty and for that matter in
the world, is the twenty - inch
guairo railroad which runs from the
smelter and reduction works at Clifton,
up Chase Creek Canyon to the mines
alwve. Every little while one reads
alwut the enormous grades on the Rio
Grande in Colorado, or upon the North
ern Pacific in crossing the Mullen moun
tains, yet none of them compare to this.
Some time ago I remember reading a
description of the new trans-Andes
railroad in South America, in which it
was said, if I remember aright, that the
grade on the Chili side was in some
places 2(55 feet to the mile, the heaviest
grade, of any railroad in the world
Right here in our own Territory
of Arizona we have a railroad
which far exceeds that. The main line
of this twentv-inch railroad is nine miles
in length and with its several branches
has a total length of sixteen miles. In
no place on the main line has it a grade
less than 200 feet to the mile while at
one point for a distance of about three
furlongs the grade is at the rate of 303
feet to the mile. The engine and cars
for this road are built especially for it in
Pittsburg, Pa. The engines weigh
twelve tons each. The cars are of steel
weighing a little over half a ton each
and have a carrying capacity of about
three and a half tons of ore.
Capt. U. E. Davis, the engineer in
charge in the construction of this road
in speaking of it said:
"I take more pride in this work than
any other piece of engineering in all my
life. I was one of the engineers in the
construction of the Central Pacific, of
the Southern Pacific and have had
charge of other small lines. None of
these, however, presented obstacles but
what any engineer of fairly good skill
could so'lve. But this I cansider is a
conception. Not only the greatest
grades but the greatest curves, one of
the latter being on an arc of 45 degrees,
and its successful working setting at
nought all the old and prescribed rules of
engineering Eciencc. I shall always
consider this the crowning triumph of
The mines at Clifton were first dis
covered by some soldiers of the Califor
nia column who had been dispatched to
find a road down the Gila river, and
coming to a box canyon, were obliged
to turn back, when they came across
the hill on which is located the Long
fellow mine, discovering the copper and
iron which lias since developed into the
great copier camp of Clifton.
Connected with the twenty-inch gnage
railroad are several gravity inclines
reaching to the opening of the mines
hundreds of feet above. One of
these located nt the 1-ongfellow
mine is 2200 feet in length the
elevation in that distance being a little
over 800 feet. At the Metcalf mine the
incline is 3300 feet in length and on an
exact angle of 45 degrees, the raise thus
being 1(550 feet.
Besides all the mines and properties
of the Arizona Copper Company there
are several other valuable locations in
close proximity. U Morenci. about two
miles from the Longfellow mine, is situ
ated the mines and smelters of the De
troit Copper Company, which employs
over 150 men. The others are smaller
properties, but all help to add to the
wealth of the camp, one of the best be
ing tho gold mine of J. II. Hovey, a few
miles distant E. S. G.
