THE DEMOCRATS AND PANAMA
The following editorial from tbe
Globe-Democrat of Nor. 16, answers
(ally the dog in the manger snarls of
tbe democratic papers on the Panama
"Threats are made by some demo
cratic papers that their party in con
gress will attack tbe administration
for its action in Panama. According
to these gossips tbe Panama canal
treaty when it reaches tbe senate, will
be held up by the democrats, a com
paratively small number of whom
could defeat its ratification. In the
boose, too, tbe administration isjto be
Impeded on this question wherever
possible by tbe democrats. It is un
certain yet what form the canal com
pact will take. Some of the canal's
advocates say that nnder tbe Spooner
act the republic of Panama and tbe
United States can arrange for tbe
canal without referring the matter
back to tbe senate. On this assump
tion Panama takes the place of Col
ombia, and all that is required in tbe
convention is a change of name wher
ever Colombia is mentioned. In that
case a settlement could soon be reach
ed, for the commissioners from Pana
ma who are on their way to Washing
ton can be relied upon, with the aid
of tbe state department, to fix np all
tbe changes that will be required iu
the old treaty that Colombia rejected.
"Bat whether this programme be
followed or a new treaty be framed
and submitted to tbe senate, tbe ques
tion is bound to oome up witbin a
few days. It is easy to believe that
tbe matter is exciting keen interest
among tbe officials of tbe administra
tion and the Republican leaders in
congress. Conferences on the matter
are said to be held every day or two.
This is immeasurably the biggest
question that is now before tbe coun
try. The Cuban reciprocity matter
dose not excite anything like the in
terest which tbe canal question will
command. On tbe general Panama
issue very interest is felt all over tbe
country The republican party is en
thusiastically and with virtual unan
imity behind tbe president in every
thing which he has dona on tbe isth
mus. It applauds him for recogniz
ing tbe de facto government of Pana
ma when it was first established. It
indorses hiB action in assuming that
that government is now de jure and
in welooming it into tbe family of na
tions. Germany bis instructed her
diplomatic representatives at tbe
isthmus to oDen relations with tbe
new government. All the other na
tions will do tbe same. This state of
things is going to have an effect on
the democrats in congress. Tbe dem
ocracy has been called the jackass
party for many years, and with very
good reasons, but it will hardly be
idiotic enough to come out as a party
against tbe course of tha administra
tion in tbe Panama case. Individual
democrats will oppose it. some be
cause they would assail anything that
is republican in conception and is'
patriotic. Others will be against it
out of sheer stupidity. But this ob
structiveness will accomplish noth
ing. If a canal treaty with ktbe new
republic Is sent to tbe senate it will
get me requisite two tnirds vote in
that body. All tbe legislation which
is required to put the treaty into
operation and to indorse tbe action of
tbe administration in its great work
of civilization on the isthmus will get ,
tbe approval of each branch of con-i
gress. The question will oome before j
congress quickly, and it will prob
ably be a bigger issue than anything
with which tbe present body will have
a chance to concern itself during its
two years of existence."

state senator of California, has been

while forty years ago, no negro in the

000,000 and owned by nergoes; besides
this. 150.000 homes, valued at 1265.-1
000,000 and personal property worth
about 9165,000,000. After the war not j
one per ceut of tbe adult negroes j
could read or write, today forty per ,
cent can do so. Fifty per cent of j
tbe children are attending school and
more could do so. if there were facili
ties. There are 800 colored physi- j
cians, 300 lawyers and 30,000 school
teacher.. The colored people own
and publish 450 newspiaers and mag- j
azines. In view of tbe handicap un
der which they started and tbe limit-
ed opportunities tbey have bad, it
seems that their progress has been
quite in keeping with that of tbe ,
great nation to which they belong. ;
Those who are not jealous of ktheir

prosperity at home.

To Cure a Cold in One Day
Tbe present term of tbe district
court, so far as it has progressed, has
been most satisfactory to the people of
the county. To begin with, the grand
jury chosen to sift the cases was one
of the best this county has ever had,
being composed of business men wbo
hid the interests of tbe county at
heart. They bad a list of thirty four
cases to consider and the way they
went through that gri-t was amazing

cused before a jury, and in all such
cases, ratber than put tbe county to a

only to have them thrown out of

for a few moments and turning over
a few pages of tbe books and then
bringing in a glowing report of how

in a thorough manner and asked the
grand jury to give them time to thor

was granted, and a recess was taken
for ten days for that purpose. The

BRODIE ON STATEHOOD.
On the question of statehood. Gov
Bro lie in his recent report assert
"that tbe people of Arizona believe,
as tbey have for many years, that tbey
are entitled to sen government as one
of the sisterhood of states, and that
tbe increase in taxable wealth, the
character of tbe population and the
progress and development made in all
lines of endeavor, entitle tbem to
consideration, and justify tbe demand
that Arizona shall be admitted. Tbey
are confident of their own ability to
support a state government, and desire
all the privileges and immunities, as
well as prosperity, that will come
with self government. At tbe same
time, tbe people of Arizona are unan
imous in tbeir opposition to a union
witn any state or part 01 a state or
territory, oven though by such a un
ion statehood could be obtained
They have expendea too much time
and energy in the upbuilding of their
publio institutions to, at this late
date, desire to surrender to others
control. Tbey feel without exception
that a union with the Terrritory of
New Mexico as one state, by whatever
name it may be known, would make
a state too cumbersome for the proper
administration of public affairs; that
such a union would be disastrous to
all concerned, and would be ratber an
obstacle than a help to tbe greatest
progressive advancement of either
Arizona seeks admission as a state
she seeks it on ber own merits, but
she seeks it as Arizona."
the reint rod notion of a bill in con
gress for the admission of Arizona and
New Mexico to statehood is announced
from Washington simultaneously with
tbe annual report of tbe governor of
Arizona. The fresh effort for admis
sion that will be made during tbe reg
ular session of congress is strengthen
ed at tbe outset by the evidence of
Arizona's great prosperity, as shown
by the data just submitted by Gover
nor Brodie. It is doubtful if any of
tbe states, at tbe time of admission,
made such a showing of financial and
industrial progress as Arizona now
presents. California was an excep
tion, of course, iu its golden outlook,
but it lacked the business stability, at
tbe time of admission, now obvious in
our territorial neighbor. In the cases
of many of the states it was a long
time before tbey equaled tbe present
condition of Arizona financially. Gov
ernor Brodie points to the fact that
tbe territory now nas eleveu national
and twenty two territorial banks, with
aggregate deposits of about $8,500,000.
The taxable wealth of the territory is
more than $43,000,000. Even more im
portant than tbe financial figures are
those showing the progress of the ter-
itory in education. The enrollment
of school children exceeds 20,000, and
tbe standard of instruction may be
inferred from the fact, as stated by the
governor, that "at least 70 per cent of
tbe teachers are normal and college
graduates, and are paid, with only two
exceptions, the highest salaries known
in any of tbe subdivisions of the un
ion." L. A. Herald.

allow tbe Russiaus to occupy Man

of Great Britain and tbe United Slates
to support her. The board of foreign
affairs is apparently completely hood
winked by the Russian representa
tions, and professes to believe that
Russia will ultimately restore the
province to China. The members of

exhaustive review of tbe copper situa
tion in which the conclusion is reach
ed that the production this year will
exceed that of last year by 68,000,000
pounds. Arizona is credited with
more than one third of this increase.
The Commercial admits that new con
ditions are constantly arising which
make it necessary to revise former es
timates, and as it happens, since the
article appeared the sensational devel
opments in Montana have occurred.
If, as at this writing appears certain,
no more copper is produced in Mon
tana for a considerable time, tbe total
production of tbe country for the year
1903 will be affected to a marked de
gree. Montana stands first in the list
of copper producers.

Stockholders of United
Gold Mines Company
Visit the Property and Delighted
With the Showing Made Will
Raise Prioe of Stock.
Tbe Journal-Miner was favored this
morning by a visit from Messrs.
Thomas M. McGill and B. F. Cobb,
prominent stockholders of tbe United
Gold Mines oompany, who returned
yesterday from JCongress where they
bad been for several days thoroughly
examining tbe properties of the com
pany near that great gold camp.
These gentlemen are very prominent
busness men of Chicago and came
here at the request of several parties
who are interested and others who ex
pect to become interested in the prop
erties of the United Gold Mines com
pany, for tbe purpose of giving tbe
properties a thorough personal exam
ination. The management of tthe
company in this case had nothing to
fear from this kind of an examinaton,
but rather desired it, as tbey felt sure
they conld show more in tbe mines
than tbey had represented to the
stockholders, and such has proven to
be tbe case.
In conversation with these gentle
men they were asked as to what their
impressions of the property were. Mr.
Cobb replied tbat tbey had nothing
but words of tbe highest praise for tbe
property. "Mr. Sullivan bad told
us," be said, "that tbe property was
a good one, and had given us some
thing of an idea of it, but dear me, be
never told us half there was to tell. I
suppose be wanted to save something
to cause us to have heart failure when
we saw tbe property ourselves and be
nearly succeeded. We went over
every foot of the property and exam
ined with critical eyes every bit of the
work done on tbe three groups of
claims, and there certainly is enough
in either of tbe three to warrant the
price for which the stock is now sell
ing. And when tbe three are com
bined into one oompany it makes tbe
proposition an absolutely gilt edged
one. There are a number of part it . -waiting
to bear the ri ror of our visit
to invest good sums of inoi.ey iu tbe
company's stock, and tbey will cer
tainly bear nothing but a good report
from us. We believe tbe stock is sell
ing too low for the wonderful showing
made by tbe property, and shall ad
vise an advance in tbe price as soon
as we get home. ' '
During tbier examination Mr. Sulli
vnn told tbem to go right to tbe ore
bodies in tbe mines and take their
own samples any place they saw Stand
to have their own assays made. This
they did and when they saw th9 result
of tbe assays tbeir enthusiasm knew
no bounds, for the assays, many of
them ran up into tbe hundreds of dol
lars, running as high as $375 to the
Messrs. McGill and Cobb left thie
morning for tbeir homes in Chicago
and their visit to this section is sure
to result in great good, for tbey are
thorough business men, in touch with
men of means and go borne with words
of praise for the country and tbe
properties they examined in particu
lar. The company hopes soon to be able
to have the properties equipped with
machinery to begin the reduction of
the ores, and as soon as that is ac
complisbed tbe company will be able
to pay regular dividends.
Meters Now Running.
Besides the repairing of the
line between Prescott and Del
which will result in the saving to the
city of between $500 and $700 per
month, Mr. Glass, tbe new superin
tendent of tbe water and sewer sys
tems, has examined and overhauled
all tbe water meters in the city and
put tbem in working order. The start
ling fact was revealed during tbe
overhauling that 95 meters in tbe
city, or about one fifth of the entire
number, were not running at all, but
were choked full of dirt so as to pre
vent tbem from registering tbe
amount of water passed through tbem.
These meters were all put in good re
pair and it is thought this may make
quite a difference in the showing of
tbe amount of water tbat the city is
selling. A few more reforms in the
management and operation of tbe city
water system will put the system not
only on a paying basis but will en
able the council to reduce the water
rate again to tbe old price. The tax
payers and water consumers can stand
such reforms very well at present.
Had a Very Close Call.
Brakeman Bent Vaughn, wbo has
been one of Conductor Brown's crew
in tbe P. A E. road for some time,
bad a very close call to being crushed
to death last evening at Middleton.
Car "98" which had taken a special
party of 'railroad officials and others
out to the end of tha track at Sad
dle, was being attached on to tbe
rear end of the regular train and
Mr. Vaughn stepped in between the
cars to make tbe coupling. The car
was standing on a pretty sharp curve
and when tbe two cars came together
it brought tbe platforms quite close
together on the side on which Mr
Vaughn was standing, and as he stoop
ed down to make tbe air coupling tbe
platforms caught his bead, cutting one
of bis ears considerably and also
lacerating tbe scalp on one side of
bis head. Had the cars come a frac
tion of . an inch closer together Tit
would have crushed bis skull, and for
a time it was feared that tbe skull bad
been broken as it was, but the train
crew immediately attacbed on to car
'98' and brought him to Prescott as
fast as they could, arriving here about
one 0 clock this morning, wnen ne
wa9 at once taken to the hospital and
his injuries attended to. It was then
ascertanied tbat tbe skull bad not
been injured and after tbe scalp
wounds had been dressed he was soon
easy and was able to go home this

The following paragraphs are taken
from a very interesting correspond
ence to the Courier from tbe famous
Crown King section in tbe Bradsbaw
Tbe new residence building of
Johnny Odell, at Oro Bell, is about
completed and Mr. and Mrs. Odell ex
pect to take up their abode therein
ere the week is out.
W.S. Clark, of Preaeott, has accept

bis duties at tbe Oro Bell last week.
A Mr. Dougherty, of boston, is

the guest of his old acquaintance, Dr.
J. C. Bradbury, foreman of the New
Jersey mine, wbicb was shut down
several wekes ago, received orders
Wednesday to resume work with a
large force of men.
James Liston, wbo has so long been
identified wib tbe Wild Flower group
of mines, resumed I work on these
properties with quite a force of men
Wednesday morning. The Wild Flow
er haa been shut down for some time
past, but now the main shaft will be
sunk 100 feet further and very exten
sive development work will be done
in drifting, crosscut ting, etc.
Dr. McDonald, who is chairman of
tbe new school board, reports tbat tbe
Crown King Mining Co. have donated
$100 to the school fund and tbat tbeir
goodness of heart is appreciated. The
Crown King Mining Co. have taken
many talents of gold and silver from
their famous mine and have immense
riches before them and can undoubt
edly well afford to be liberal toward
tbe rising generation.
We learn from our forest guardian
tbat applications are being made on
every hand for rights to cnt timber
and cordwood, tbe amount of tbe
former applied for running way up
into the thousands of cords That this
place is on tbe verge of a big boom,
there can be no doubt and many mills
will shortly be put into shape or run
ning that have long been silent.
Monday evening, F. P. Ward, wbo
is superintending the carpenter work
at the Crown King mill, was tbe vic
tim of a serious accident. In endeav
oring to place a belt on a pulley in
the second story of tbe building, be
in some way slipped and fell a dis
tance of five or six feet, striking a
timber studded with bolts. His left
forearm and left hip were badly frac
tured and give bim incessant pain..
Ha was immediately removed to his
room over tbe store. Dr. Campbell,
inventor of the electric separator and
wbo was a surgeon in tbe civil war,
happened to be on tbe spot and gave
first aid in a manner which betokens
that none of bis old lime skill bas

Home Run Mine.
Clarence & Whiting of New York,
bas been in Prescott, Ariz., in tbe in
terest of a large number of stockhold
ers of tbe Home Run Mining com
pany. Mr. Whiting does not claim to
be a mining engineer or expert miner;
but be bas bad years of practical min
ing work in California and Colorado,
and thinks, like most practical men.
tbat be knows a mine wbeu he seeo it,
yet admits tbat he can tell no more
about a prospect than any other man,
for tbe simple reason that he is not
gifted with tbe power of sight tbat
will enable bim to see any further
into the ground than tbe greatest ex
pert or tbe merest amateur.
Speaking of his visit to tbe Home
Run, Mr. Whiting said : "I had ex
pected to find a good mine because
from years of association with Doug
las, Lacey A Co., I have never known
them to wilfully make a misstate
ment. Tbey have. I know, met with
many disappiontments in tbeir min
ing ventures here in Arizona, but it
has not been their fault tbat these
properties have not proven successes
for they have put out in labor and
development during the past three
years in Yavapai county over $450,000.
"Xbe Home Run mine is one of un
usual merit, and while I do not think
it is wise in mining matters to be
too optimistic, I would have no hesi
tancy in saying that this property
alone will turn back to Douglas, La
cey A Co., inside of four or five years.
every dollar tbey bave spent here.
"The mill should handle from 50 to
5 tons of ore per day, wbicb is all
ready for it, and it would seem tbat
with ore averaging fully $8 to tbe ton
tbe company would bave a monthly
bullion product of from $8000 to $10,-
000. This, I should judge, will be
largely increased, as tbe ore values
are averaging much better as the depth
aud drifts increase. I think tbe
amount of ore estimated in sight will
run above the amount given by Mr.
Jones and Mr. Nissen in tbeir reports,
for the values are ranging higher,
large quantities of tbe ore now being
taken down running up to $11 and $1-
to the ton. The facilities for handling
this ore economically are excellent
and can not coat to mine and mill to
exceed $3.50 to the ton. I consider
the Home Run a great and valuable
min:.ng property." Journal for In
Charlotte Is Dying.
It is reported tbat Carlotta is dying
in the castle near Trieste where she
bas so long been confined. Her sad
story is well known; she was the wife
of the unfortunate Maximilian, and
sister ot tbe king of the Belgians. She
married Maximilian, then Archduke
of Austria, when she was seventeeu.
When Nopoleon 111 offered the throne
of Mexico to Maximilian, she wa.
eager for him to accept it : she urged
bim to it and dreamed dreams of a
vast power and empire which tbey
should build in the new country of
wealth bey- nd dreams. Wben she
came over to Mexico with her court
she busied herself establishing a
model palace such as she bad known
in Europe. But tbe dream was short

Decision on Chinese Law.
If the opinion rendered by Judge
Wing, in the United States court at
Cleveland, Ohio, is sustained, the
Chinese Exclusion Law will suffer a
severe blow, and Inspectors Webb and
O'Connell in this locality will have
a much harder time in securing a con
viction. Tbe jadge decided that be
fore he could issue an order for the
deportation of the three Chinamen,
who were up before him charged with
being illegally in the United States,
that the government must prove be
yond a reasonable doubt that the ac
cused were Chinamen and not citizens
of some other country, such as Korea,
etc. Tbe officials were not able to
prove this and tbe Chinamen were
discharged. Should this decision be
upheld by the federal courts the im
migration officials will be greatly
hampered, as tbe burden of proof will
be laid upon tbem. It will be neces
sary tc prove tbat each particular ;
Chinaman in question is not a Korean
and virtually the whole exclusion act
will be nullified thereby. Heretofore
the officials held that if the Chinamen
arrested could not prove to the satis
faction of th court tbat be was law
fully in the country he was ordered
deported. Tbe outcome of tbe decis
ion will be watcbed with interest and
no doubt in tbe first case tbat comes
up before any of tbe courts of Arizona
this question will be raised by the de
fense and tbe government forced to
prove tbe identity of the arrested
