Mr. Bryan is preparing to invade
New York with sample copies of the
Corr-noner, which calls to mind a
familiar adage about a kind of man

Senator McLaurin is very boldly

of the voters of South Carolina in

In suggesting the submission of the

Ii digestion must have been respon

The president has spiked the demo

BEAUTIFY THE PLAZA
Every day sees another shanty or
two torn down and removed from the
plaza. The time set when these '
shanties should all be removed from
the plaza was up Monday, but there
are several merchants who occupy
these temporary quarters whose per
manent quarters are not yet finished
and they are therefore unable the va
cate and the board will, under these
circumstances be as liberal and easy
with them as possible, allowing them : .
a reasonable time to get into their i
new rooms. But the empty shanties
are all being torn away and n day or

places left as a reminder of that ter
rible July night. The generosity and j
kindness of the board of snner.
visors in permitting the use of the
plaza in this manner has been a great 1
help to many of our merchants and I
has enabled them to pull through a
very trying time. When these places
are finally all cleared off again there
should be a move inaugurated to 1
beautify the plaza and make It har
monize with the S'ew and Greater
Prescott. With the abundant water
I supply that we shall now have, the
plaza could b made very beautiful at
a small outlay, and those who have
j been benefitted by the use of the
I plaza should now take an active iu
j terest in seeing that the place is made
one of beauty and comfort. Let the
grounds lie nicely cleaned off, grass
or clover planted trees set out, seats
placed under the shade trees where
the weary may find a place to rest,
! good cement walks laid out, the mis
erable remnant of a more miserable
1 fence entirely removed, or in other
words let the plaza have the appear
ance of beiug in a real, live, wide-
awake city as it is. and forbid that
it should ever return to look like it
did before the fire more like a cattle

STANDARD OIL OO.
Every day witnesses the location
and incorporation of oil companies,
many of whom never expect to drill a
well or otherwise improve the claims
on which they file.
While there are a few companies
who honestly intend to prospect for
oil and improve the land, a majority
of them only expect to make money
out of the scheme without giving any
thing in return, and greater numbers
exjiect to hold the claims until they
find out whether those already in tiie
field will strike oil and thus profit bv
the industry and enterprise of others.
Such people should lie frowned upon
and finaii ial aid accorded those who
show an inclination to develop their
properties and the country.
Seven companies are already at
work or have ordered well drills and
material with which to proceed.
The Arizona Standard Oil company
was the first company in the field and
have already secured 1680 acres of
t he most promrsiug land in the val
ley, and sunk their well to the capa
city of their first drill, having placed
heavier machinery with which to pro
oeed deeper. This company and
others who show the right kind of en
terpnse should be encouraged bv
ev. rv resident, for it is a well known
fact that the finding of oil in this vi

McCarthy s disappearance.
Arizona's Ex-Fish Commissioner
Fails to Put in an Appear
ance From a Pigeon
J. K. Day, partner of John McCar
thy in the hunting business arrived
hi Prescott on Saturday evening and
reported th;d Mr. . McCarthy is miss
ing. McCarthy has occupied the
position of fish and game commis
sioner of the territory for the past
four years and is also a deputy Uni
ted States marshal. He has been en
gaged iu tripping and hunting for
the past twelve or fourteen years and
there are few if any in the territory
who has made more money out of
wild animal scalps than he.
He received an order recently from
eastern parties for specimens of the
wild pigeons fount! in Arizona, also
for four dozen fur or tassel eared
squirrels, an animal found only in
the Mogollon mountains and White
mountains of Arizona. McCarthy,
Day, J. S. Gallett and Tom Bower
went into the Mogollon mountains
the latter part of May and went into
camp on Clear creek, near Jones's
ranch. On the morning of June 6
McCarthy left camp to go over to
Poverty flat, about three miles, to
shoot pigeons, the only weapon taken
. by him being a shot gun. Nothing
has been seen ot him since. Mis ran
ure to return the first night did not
arouse any special uneasiness on the
part of his comrades but after being
absent two nights they concluded
that some mishap had befallen him
and started in search of biro. His
tracks were found in Poverty flat and
were followed up into the mountains
going towards Baker's Butte. Owing
to the great numt)er of pine burrs in
the mountains it was impossible to
follow his trail. On June 9 a party of
nine cowboys joined in the search and
later another party of cowboys from
tne Verde valley jdlded the searching
party and Mr. Day says that w'heii he
left on Itnireday over twenty men
were scouring the mountains hunting
for him, but no trace of him had been
discovered after leaving Poverty flat.
A party of Indians who had been
in camp on Clear creek, returned to
the Verde valley but on being ques
tioned stated that they had seen
nothing of the missiug man.
McCarthy, as statedabove has been
engaged in hunting in northern and
central Arizona for over twelve years
and knows every square mile so there
is scarcely any possibility that he
I 'V1 his "f8.-
The only plausible
theory of his disappearance is that he
has met With some sort of mishap.
i That he has encountered a bear, of
which there are a number in that sec
tion, or that he fell over a cliff and he
was either injured or killed. A bear
appeared at the camp of the hunters
a night or two after his disappearance

McCarthy when he left camp wore
j dep,,ty United States marshal's badge
a corduroy hunting suit and had on a
also a Workmen' badgeand a Masonic
and Odd Fellows badge united as he
1 belonged to all of these orders. His
wite who resides at . Liudleyvuie nas
