takes her place among the up to date
cities of the west. The first car load
of ties for the Prescott and Mt. Union
Railway company arrived yesterday
and are being uuloaded and hauled to
the route of the new electric street
railway today, thus inaugurating the
work" ot building the line.
P. 1. Wright has been granted a
franchise by the city of Prescott to

The Prescott Electric company has

Col. J. T. Small, oi LewtahM. will
leave borne on Tuesday evening tor
New York City, where he is to join a
party of bankers aud brokers for a
trip to Colorado aud Arizona. They
are going to look over their interests
in some of the big copper and gold
mines that are located in those states.
It is quite likely that a Journal
reporter will join them in Chicago,
and accompany the party through
tbeir three weeks' trip. The visit
will take them over one of tbe most
famous pre-bistiu ic portions of our
country, aud we ho)e to present to
our readers an account of some of
those interesting scenes. Col. Small
recently made a similar ami very suc
cessful trip through the Black Hills,
and he expects that the present one
will be far more interesting. This
gentleman rarely makes a .tour of this
nature unless the prospects are very
promising, and he expects that this
will be the most important that he
has yet undertaken. His companions
and business partners ou this occasion
will be the members of the banking
bouse of Monroe. Rogers & Haynes,
of New York. Lewiston Evening
Journal. Lewiston. .Me., May 11, 1903.
The Journal-Miner has private ad
vices that the party mentioned in the
above item is due to arrive here on
Thursday. May 21. Prof. Bateman of
tbe staff of the Lewiston Journal is a
member of the party and if the coun
try and the mines impress him favor
ably he will no doubt give this sec
tion some good advertising. D. C.
Monroe, of tbe Monroe Consolidated
and of tbe White Horse also is a mem
ber of tbe party.

ported to have opened up a wonderful
i body of gold copper ore at a depth of
1 80 feet. A contract bad been let to
sink the shaft on the property 100
feet, and in carrying on the work the
j big strike was made. The property
; was bonded by Mr. Blancbard from
! Sam Butler and E. S. Osborne more
than a year ago, since which time he
has been doing a great deal of work.
: The mines compose a group of about
forty claims, carrying gold and copper
values. Mobave Miner.
The new McCabe mill will have a ca
pacity for treating 100 tons of ore
daily. It will be strictly up to date
and when completed will be the finest
mill in the territory. Mr. Jager says
iliey expect to have it completed with
in ninety days. The mill will be sep-
! arate from the hoist, the old mill and
! hoiat all being under one roof. In
I order to avoid possible accidents such
! 818 resulted in the destruction of the
j old mill, an electric dynamo mill be
placed in the new one and no coal oil
j lamps will he used.

Monday Club Benefit to
Large and Brilliant Gathering Show
Appreciation of Orchestra's
Services in the Past.
The promenade concert and hop
given last evening under the auspices
of the Monday club, as a benefit to
the Prescott orchestra, was a well pat
ronized affair, there being between 200
and 300 ladies and gentlemen present.
The entertainment was attended by
many Prescott people who are seldom
j aeea at entertainments where dancing
! forms a feature of the entertainment.
The musical nrotrram rendered bv
, tbe orchestra was composed of popu-
lr selections and tmes without qarinir
that they were most excellently ren
dered. In additon to the number
rendered by the orchestra was a solo
by Mrs. D. M. F. Weeks, entitled
"For All Eternity, " by Mascheroni,
with violin obligato by A. B. Mader.
which elicited a hearty encore from
A cornet solo by J. C. Barkley,
Schubert's "Serenade," also received
an encore to which Mr. Barkley re
sponded. J. C. Remington rendered "The
Holy City" as a trombone solo which
was heartily encord.
Another very pleasant feature of
the musical part of tbe program, was
a selection rendered by a male sex
tette composed of Messrs. Thomas,
Poole, Yount. Ross, Kessler and Lam
son. Their voices harmonized beauti
fully. They sang with precision aud
they received a double encore before I
the audience was satisfied. This was I
their first public appearance as they
are organzied for mutual pleasure, but
1 from the hit made by them last even
: ing it is safe to predict that they will
; lie asked to contribute to the euter
: tainment of the public in the future.
At the conclusion of the concert the
chairs which bad been arranged in
i formally arouud tbe room, were shift
1 ed to the sides, aud daucing was in
i dulged in, the program of dancing
being quite lengthy aud lasting until
after two o'clock.
The hall had been decorated for the
occasion very beautifully by the
ladies. but tbier most successful
efforts at decoration were in the twu
quet room where refreshments were
served. A large table had been placed
in tbe center of this ball, which was
decorated with potted ferns and flow
ers, and lighted candles, in beautiful
ly designed candelabra of brass, giving
it a most beautiful effect. The viands
were also placed on this table and
served in an informal manner to tbe
guests who were seated around tbe
The entertainment was a very pro
nounced success as a mnsicale.and from
J?ZLJ 1 .Jf '
Prescott an opportunity of showing
their appreciation of the many ser
vices rendered by this musical organ
ization on so many oocarioM, and to
which they responded so gMMNMMly.
K1RKLAND AND SKI LL VALLEY.
Henry Gohrman has been confined
to his bed for over a week. He is im
proving fast at this writing.
H. EL Hunt has moved his family to
the Big 5 Placer claims. He has j
every thing in running order again,
pumps, buildings, etc. The dry
placer plant has not been transplanted
yet but active preparations are under
Grant Carter. Bill Rudv aud a uum
0f 0thers have
just made a big

The death of Uncle Davy Nichols,
of Skull valley, was a cause for con
siderable surprise and regret. He was
a very old settler here, aud a, veteran
of the war of UB1-1863 from nearly
start to finish. He had only drawn a
small pension for about two years
prior to his death. An increase was
allowed but death came before he
could use it.
Gardening is the geueral occupation
of the ranachers in Skull Valley aud
good results are expected. Hay is

Caribou Brown Dead.
Henry P., better known as "Cari
bou," Brown, died in Tucson on Sat
urday night. "Caribou" Brown was
a gambler by profession, and was one
of the best known characters in Ari
zona. He was the soul of honor, and
integrity. During a residence of near
ly a score of years in Prescott be made
many friends, as he was kind and gen
erous, and a law abiding and peace
ful citizen. He claims to have been
born in 1818, which would make him
85 years old at the time of bis death,
but by many of his friends, he was
thought to be much older. He served
in the English navy in his younger
years being dismissed from that serv
ice for challenging a superior officer
to tight a duel.
SHE LONGED FOR CITY LIFE.
By Dr. S. M. Wright.
At once I was tempted to write a per
"Stay right where you are dear," but
did not for fear of offending
And knowing tbe ground, I perceived
'twould be utterly useless.
Bound is she to come but tbe coming
don't govern tbe ending.
In despair will she drift till a third
rate cafe will receive her,
Thau which let us pray if there's
anything lower and meaner
And should she be pretty, like glit
tering snow on tbe bill tops
Must she carry herself, to avoid tbe
sad fate of pollution.
she's childly confiding and
as the bloom of tbe 1 illy.
The fate in tbe romance of Clarissy
Harlow confronts her
But if she is homely, tbe fate of suc
cess is against her
And thus may a blessing approach
her, its purpose disguising.
i if she's a bright one, perhaps
she'll succeed in quite earning
. The price of her board bill, luxur
iously spending the surplus
In pins or in needles some tape or
yard of hair ribbon,
But, if by hard labor and bitterest
i failures repeated.
It seems she's acquiring the goal of
her purpose triumphant,
: Then up steps a lover a dapper young
man of tbe city,
i Who lovingly beckons and so leads
her over tbe border,
Into the land where her troubles will
have a beginning.
; Not used to the needle nor blest with
a knowledge of cooking
for these are forgotten when girla
would mark out their own future-
Her bread will rise sadly and husband
will growl at tbe coffee
. So love then will gallop away o'er the
hills of the border
! Like a riderless steed and happiness
flare like a phantom.
j Oh, maid of the country ! just stay
where you are with your people,
; Don't rush to the city, but stay with
the brook and trout Ashing
Than brave the sea stormy in dan
gerous risk at whale cruising.
Oh, God ! but it's cruel
the risk of
young girls in the city:
It takes them like apples sun kissed
on tbeir branches of glory
To be crushed in the mills to a pulp
that is shapeless and mangled.
The girl who's succeeding, in nine
out of ten has a helper
An assistant in court, who loans her
tbe key of admission.
Without such a helper, lone girl,
you're exposed to the demons.
So stay in the country, the breath of
the hills is your Eden;
Like the elect of God, you're the salt
of tbe earth and must save it.
Lacrosse, Wis., May 19. Reports
Mceived from surrounding towns are
to tbe effect that inestimable damage
has been done to the farm lands by
the big rise in the Mississippi and its
tributaries. Thousands of acres of
farm lauds have been flooded, and
crops will have to be replanted.
A FALSE REPORT.
A false rumor seems to have gotten
abroad to the effect that a contagious
disease exists at the Mountain Dairy
ranch of J. P. Tiernan. Tbe rumor
is entirely without foundation, as no
case of sickness of any kind either
contagions or otherwise exists on
i lint ranch, or among any of the
family or employees, but on tbe con
trary all are enjoying excellent !
The report probably started from
tbe fact that the tenants of Mr. Tier
nau's house on Virginia street are
quarantined for a contagious disease
of some kind, but as this place is over
a mile from the dairy ranch, where
Mr Tiernan and family live they are
further away from the trouble and
les liable to exposure to it than resi-
dents of Prescott
Mrs. McClung, of Pueblo, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Drake, is visit
ing her parents on Mt. Vernon street.

ST. LOUIS' GREAT
A Magnificent Mineral
Exhibit in View.
Field Commissioner Dr. Ward Will
Visit All Sections of Conntry
to Advance Mining.
Dr. William S. Ward. Held commis
sioner of tbe departmeut of mines and
metallurgy of the St. Louis exposi
tion, who has beeu in Prescott for a
cotiple of days will aecomiauy Col.
A. J. Doran, president of the Arizona
Board of Managers, to Phenix to
night, to be present at a meeting of
the board tomorrow.
Dr. Ward 's field of labor is the en
tire mining section of the whole
country, and be has had an exper
ience which well qualifies him for the
At t;he Paris exposition of 1889 he
was commissioner from Colorado. At
tbe Columbian exposition iu Chicago
in 1893, he was chief of tbe depart
ment of Colorado, aud collected aud
arranged the exhibit from that state.
He was also a director of the depart
ment of mines and metallurgy of the
Paris expositiou of 1900.
His experiences iu these positions,
as well as his thorough knowledge of
mines' and of mining. eminently quali
fies him for the position he now occu
pies. He has been able to obtain in
formation concerung the collection
and arrangement of exhibits which
are invaluable. It is oue thing to col
lect an exhibit aud an entirely differ
ent proposition to place it ou exhibi
tion where it will attract tbe attention
of visitors and be seen aud examined
by t hem.
Dr. Ward says that profiting by pre
vious expositions tbe building of
mines at St. Louis is 4eing built on
entirely different plans from build
ings at former expositions. Instead
of having one main aisle extending
through tbe building with side aisles
leaving it at various points tbe aisles
diverge from the entrancei to all por
tions ot the building. By this ar
rangement the crowd separates im
mediately upon enteing the buildiug
instead of passing up a muin aisle.
Other important facts have also been
learned of which advantage will be
taken at the St. Louis exposition.
Dr. Ward will vUit all the princi
pal mining districts of tbe country,
and will meet with the various state
and territorial boards aud confer with
them as to space required and will
superintend tbe installation of tbe

and beautifully decorated.
Governor Sparks and Mayor Meckey

After the speech tbe president was
given a short ride over the city and
with a very short wait at the depot
