An Early Hassayamper.
Major Doran was born at ;cw,
FhiladLlphia, Ohio, on July 11, 1S40.
In 1860 he left that State and came
to Colorado, when the western spirit
seized him and with others 'he passed
through Tucson in the latter part of
tl at year for California to pursue his
vocation as a millwright, carpenter
and bridge builder. When the Civil
War broke out, he was one of the
first to enlist at the Statc capital ana

commission, owing to his familiarity
with the country, which covered what
then was known as the Butterficld
stage route, passing through Yuma,
Maricopa Wells and other old land
marks. Later this command was
shifted to Texas, to return to Tucson
two years afterward. So it may be
observed that Major Doran in reality
was a pioneer, and his recital of the
experiences of that faraway day was
most thrilling and interesting. lie
was honorably discharged at Tucson,
when he returned to California to en
gage in business as a merchant and
to establish saw mills at different
points near mining town. In 1868 he
resumed his trade, and was given
large contracts in bridge construction
for the Central Pacific, then entering
The Lure of Arizona.
Major Doran retraced his steps to
Arizona in 1876, when he slated lie
"hit the trail" to go into camp for
good. He located at the small camp
of the Silver King, the most famous
of mine in the West in its day, which
was situated in Pinal county. He
was appointed mine superintendent
as well as construction engineer of
the mill to be built, and in this dual
capacity the wonderful record made
by this silver producer still lives ana
is kindly cherished for the capability
of this man. Oilier Arizona mine
fields attracted the attention of this
practical operator, and he became in
terested in nearly every section in
the years which followed. His judg
ment was weighed with high regard
by capital and his success was well
In Political Life.
There arc very few Arizonaus who
attained the prominence in official life
which the deceased enjoyed. In 1882
he was elected sheriff of Pinal count'

Succeeding years found him a mem
ber of the territorial board of equali
zation for two terms under Gocrnor
Wolfcy's administration. In 1894 he
was elected couucilinan-iit-largc 5 11
Arizona to the upner branch of 1 tic
legislature, a distinction which he
won through his splendid name as a
constructive statesman and which was
iclievcd of any sectional considera
tion whatever. He graced the legisi
lature later in again being elected to
the tipper house, and for two terms he
was in the assembly. In this latter
duty he was the first lawmaker to
urge the creation of the board of con
trol, and this official body is still re
tained under statehood by another
name. 1'or sccn years he was a
lieutenant colonel of the National
Guard of rizoiia. and this military

foresight, hich was intended to be
for defensive purposes solely. The

Prcscott will have no Chautauqua
fThis decision was reached at a re
cent meeting of the Chautauqua com.
inittcc of the Chamber of Commerce,
one of the representatives of the
Chautauqua organization having been
in the city this week to talk things
over with the committee. In view 01
the fact that the nation is at war and
the financial drain upon the populace
is somewhat heavy, it was decided to
dispense with the big entertainment
event and let the time and financial
resources of the citizens of the coun
ty be turned in other directions.
While it was shown that the
Chautauqua movement was undoubt
edly one which tended toward the
moral uplift of the respective com
munities, it was decided that inas
much as Uncle Sam has something of
a gigantic "uplift" mocincnt on his
hands right now, it was the duty of
his nephews and nieces to conserve
their encrgie for boosting the work of
uplifting tlie kaiser from his present
job of Prussianizing the universe.
In all probability a lyccum course
will be arranged for, a number of
good concerts, lectures, etc, to be
brought here at intervals of several
weeks apart. The lyccum numbers
will be furnished by the same com
pany which provided the Chautauqua
attractions 111 seasons past.

A new compressor is to be installed

regeneration of affairs will follow at

security will be afforded in carrying

The Copper King, a holding of thc

raw product with zinc values csiau-

ton. The new wagon road being
built from the works to Hillside, on
