Phoenix to a high position.
"Whatever prejudice may have existed
in years gone uy in Prescott as regarded

cause for its existence, for the interests
of the counties of Yavapai and Maricopa

in products and industries, they will
never clash in a common market, but
will find mutual profit in exchancing
with each other their commodities. That
this may be done requires a connecting
railroad. That this railroad should be
built is beyond dispute, and the counties
should confer together as to the best
method of accomplishing its con
struction. 'Prescott needs barleyt hay, fruits
and other products, while from the
North can be exchanged lumber, of
which you now stand so much in need.
Plucnix would be benefited froin n
business and agricultural standpoint
while Yavapai would gain in securing
the necessaries of life much cheaper
and in tho added development of the
magnificent mining resources of Yavapai
County. When tho heat of summer is
wilting the people of this valley, they
could take transportation and in a few
hours he among the peaks of the Brad
shaw Mountains; while, when the
biting cold of January and February
is preventing work in Prescott, how
pleasant it would be to slip down to
Phoenix and enjoy the sunshine and
balmy air. Yes, Yavapai and Mari
copa counties have identical interests
and with proper effort may become also
profitable to each other."
Mr. Wells leaves for homo tomorrow,
via Black Canon, but will not fail to
return for another visit before long.

Futile Attempts of the Firemen to
Subdue the Flames Surrounding-
Ciiicaoo, September 28. The Anglo
American Packing Company's establish
ment at the stock yards was damaged by
fire early this morning to the extent of
The fire was one of the worst the
department has ever had to deal with.
An alarm was turned in just before 2
o'clock, w hen the flames were seen in
the packing room. When the first
engines arrived this room was a mass of
flames. Water had little eilect on the
grease-soaked floors and the fire soon
reached a room where thirty-two tanks
of lard were located. These exploded,
one after another, and the melted lard
added fresh fuel to the flames.
The heat was intense, and the firemen
were forced back and compelled to work
from a distance.
The flames then Fpread to the cooling
room, where the carcasses of nearly
7,000 hogs were stored. They burned
like oil. Water seemed useless and
twenty engine companies at work made
More engines were summoned but two
hours after the fire started the roof fell
in and the flames seemed to spread
more rapidly than ever. A hundred
streams of water being poured on the
lire appeared to have no effect.
About this time, the flames reached
a lot of saltpetre and the fumes from
this stifled the firemen, overcoming
several of them. The Fire Marshals
directed all the efforts of their men to
preventing the spread of the flames
from the Anglo-American plant. With
in a short distance of the establishment
are several other large packing houses,
and for a time it was lea red that the
flames would communicate with them.
The firemen secceeded, however, in
keeping the fire within bounds.
At 0 o'clock this morning it was seen
to be impossible to extinguish tho burn
ing pork, but water was thrown on it
to keep the fire down as much as possi
ble, it w ill have to burn out and it will
probably be a day or two bcfoieitis
The fire department succeeded in sav
ing the other portion of the Anglo
American plant from serious damage.
The loss is entirely covered by insurance.
The company that bus liecn conduct
ing the business is composed of English
men. Recently, however, a new
company was formed, known as Fowler
Brothers, limited, incorporated in Eng
land with a capitalization of 750,000,
with a proposal to acquire the business
of several linns here and elsewhere.
