DOG IN MANGER POLICY.
The Phenix Enterprise, which has
been the avowed enemy of Yavapai
county for some time, never missing
an opportunity to give this county a
stab in the back, continues its opposi
tion to the presidential visit to the
Congress mine for no other apparent i
reason, except that it is in this countv
and that F. M. Murphy is interested
in the mine. Its scheme is to get the
presidential party to stop in Tucson,
and then occupy the time intended
for the trip to Congress. Of course
the proposition, to any one except the
editor of the Enterprise, is perfectly
ridiculous when it is known that the
train will pass through Tucson about
midnight when the members of the
party are supposed to be asleep. One
of the objections urged by the Enter
prise against the visit of the party to
Congress, is that it might be con
strued as an attempt to use the chief
executive for mercenery methods on
account of the recent sale of the mine.
Of course this excuse is verv farfetch
ed, and the inconsistency of it is dem
onstrated in the columns of the En
terprise, by its persistent and repeat
ed reference to the great benefit ex
pected from the Salt River valley by
his visit. In fact to read the Phenix
papers generally one could not but
form the opinion that the only inter
est taken in the presidential visit is '
the dollars and cents worth of adver
tising they can obtain from it. Almost
every reference made to his visit con
tains some allusion to the pecuniary
advantage which they expect to obtain
The Congress mine has just been
sold, hence there is no intention on j
the part of those interested in getting I
the presidential party to visit it, to
attempt to get him and his cabinet to
buy it. Mining is the most promi
nent industry of this territory by all
odds. For this party to come to Ari
zona and never leave the Salt River
valley, and to carry back with them
the impression that all there is of Ari
zona is an oasis of a few thousand
acres in a barren waste of desert
would certainly be very misleading
and would be an injustice to the ter
ritory. All of the distinguished gen
tlemen composing the party have seen
rich grain and pasture fields in the
east and are thoroughly familiar with
such scenes, but probably not a half
dozen of the entire party have ever
seen a well equipped mine and mill
and will see nothing in their entire
trip which will be of greater interest
When the president and party left
Washington last Monday, their ob
jective point in Arizona was the Con
gress mine, in Yavapai county, the
richest county in the territory, and
barring accidents it will arrive there
on schedule time next Tuesday morn
ing, May 7. After thoroughly in
specting one of Arizona's greatest bul
lion producing mines, looking through
its eighty stamp mill and witnessing
the manner of extracting and separa
ting the precious metal from the en
vironments in which it was placed bv
nature, taking in the cyanide
plant and seeing the process of ex
tracting and refining the gold, the
party will take their departure for
California where it is due on the
morning of May 8. On account of
the special arrangements made by
the Southern Pacific railroad for their
rapid transportation it gives them a
few hours lee way which will be spent
in Phenix, as they pass through that
place. Of course everybodv in the
territory rejoices that they will have
this opportunity of stopping there for
a short time, as it is one of the garden
spots of the territory and will afford
them an opportunity of witnessing
what a wonderful transformation can
be made of a desert by water and in

Hogg Makes Millions.
Ex -Governor Hogg, of Texas, it is
said, has made approximately 53,000,
000 in oil and kindred interests at and
near Beaumont. In addition to hav
ing procured possession of 500 acres
of rich oil lauds at Beaumont, Hogg
has acquired 15,000 acres of iron ore
land surrounding New Birmingham
and comprising the pick of the great
iron belt in Cherokee county.
With the land he has got" control of
a big foundry, furnaces, buildings and
everything connected with the Indus
try that makes it ready for immediate
operation against the iron pipe and !
sheet iron trusts. It is figured that
the oil will be delivered at New Birm
ingham at a cost of ten cents per bar
rel. Three barrels of oil oil equal one
ton of coal.

this is the more true when he discour

timely to refer to the fact that the

The opening of the International

TODAY'S EXCURSION TRAIN
A Model ot Beauty and Filled to the
Platform With Passengers Who
Will Pay Their Respects to
It was a gaily j -decked train that
pulled out from the Prescott depot at
1:10 o'clock this afternoon for
Phenix. The train was in charge of
Conductor Graves, while Harry El
liott, the pioneer railroad engineer of
this section, was at the throttle, and
his fireman was Wilmot Pentland.
The engine was beuatifully decorated
with bunting and flags, special pains
being taken with the decorations, as
the engine which pulled this excur
sion will also pull the presidential
train out of Phenix to Congress and
The train was composed of three
coaches, a combination conch and a
baggage car with Governor Murphy's
private car attached to the rear. The
rear coach had a streamer in red.!
white and blue stretched along its
side, containing a "Welcome to the
President" in large letters. Presi
dent Murphy's car was also decorated
with red, white and blue, in a very
artistic manner. In addition to Pre
sident Murphy, the x-cupants of this
car were Simon J. Murphy and fam
ilv of Detroit. Michigan, j. H. Em
mert. W. A. Drake, H. W. Kinsley
and R. N. Fredericks.
Over 100 pissengers embarked from
Prescott, while from sixty to eighty
came over from Jerome on the special,
and a car load came in from the P. Ac
E. railroad. The traiu is scheduled
to reach Phenix about 7 o'clock this

The law governing the publication

a law which provides that parties who

It reads as follows:

Sitting vs. Setting.
In the write up of the rummage sale
the Journal-Miner had occasion to re
fer to a "sitting" hen as one of the
articles of barter there. A correspond
ent writes a critical communication
on the misuse of the word "sitting."
claiming that it should have been re
ferred to as a "setting" hen. While
the latter word is frequestly used, it
is without authority, as will be seen
by reference to any standard diction
ary. "Set" denotes action, while "sit"
expresses a condition of repose. One
can set a hen and theu she will sit-
that is if she does her duty. One can
properly speak of the "setting" sun, 1
but while the sun "sets" it never i
"sits," in which respect it differs from

Armour & Company's beef house,
one of the largest buildings at the

contained 1500 carcasses.
Unless she is a healthy mother. No
woman can. If the baby has drained
her vitality; if its care is a tax; if, in
short, the baby is a burden instead of a
blessing, how can she enjoy it ? She
loves it, but she cannot feed it. She
yearns for it, but has not the strength
to fondle it.
There is nothing more beautiful in the
world than a healthy mother and her
healthy child. The madonna is the
highest reach of human art. In the
serene strength which art give9 to the
typical mother and child there is distinct
denial of suffering and weakness as a
necessity of motherhood. But how few
women are there to whom motherhood
is naturally an abiding joy. In how
many cases a woman dates her loss of
health from the birth of her child ! To
all such suffering women Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription comes as a veritable
god-send. It prepares the mother for
her hour of trial, tranguilizes her nerves,
encourages her appetite, and brings her
restful sleep. It makes the baby's ad
vent practically painless, and gives the
mother abundant strength to nurse and
nourish her child.
Every claim made for Favorite Pre
scription " is supported by the testimon
ials of wives and mothers, thousands in
number, and covering in their several
experiences the whole range of womanly
suffering. In a great number of cases
after the utter failure of all doctors and
medicines, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription, tried as a last resort, has ef
fected a perfect and permanent cure.
Sick women are invited to consult Dr.
Pierce by letter free. All womanly con
fidences held under the seal of strict
?rofessional privacy. Address Dr. R. V.
ierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
There is no alcohol in Favorite Pre
scription " and it is entirely free from
opium, cocaine, and all other narcotics.

and 'Golden Medical Lhncovrry ' the best med
icines in the world," writes Mrs. Amelia Dough

was born lan .summer. AfVr baby came I be
came ill. had fHc best physician that could be
got, and he diagnosed mv case as uterine trouble
tending to dropsy. Medicine seemed to do me
no good; I lingered between life and death for
quite a while, every day growing weaker, until
I could not walk across the room. Mv friends
were looking for my death every minute. A
friend wrote and told me about Dr. R V. Pierce,
and I at once wrote to him for medical advice.
He replied immediately, giving me full instruc
tions as to what to do. I at once followed bis
advice, and when I had taken his medicine
about a week I felt a good deal stronger. When
I had taken it about one month I felt as strong
as I do to-day. I took four bottles of each kind
and two via la of 'Pleasant Pellets.' Many
thanks for the medicine. It has cured me per
manently." Gained 40 Pounds.
I am very glad to let other poor sufferers
know what Dr. Pierce's medicines have done
for me." writes Mrs. Edwin H. Gardner, of
Beechwood. Norfolk Co., Mass.. Box j. "You
know I wrote to you last summer. I read what
your medicine had done for other people, so
thought 1 would try it. and I found that is was s
blessing to me and ray family. I began in June
and took six bottles of your medicine, and three
vials of ' Pellets.' I took your medicine a year
when I had a ten pound girl. I had the-easiest
time I ever had with any of my three children.
! have lcen very well since I took your medi
cine I took three bottles of Favorite Prescrip
tion.' three of ' Golden Medical Discovery, and
three vials of' Pellets. I had no appetite and
could not eat much without it distressing rae
before I took your Favorite Prescription ' and I
only weighed 135 pounds. Now I weigh 175
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets commend
themselves as a family laxative. They
are easy to take, effective in results, anil
their use does not beget the pill habit.
