TO THE COUNTY
THE REPUBLICAN DELEGATION
FROM THE BIG COPPER CAMP
AND ITS OPEN ATTITUDE ON
Generous and Loyal to the Party
it Asks for no Consideration at
the Hands of the
DEMOCRATIC PLANS COLLAPSE
Contrary to predictions made by
several, anil especially so by demo
crats, the Jerome delegation has
come and gone and up to the present
not a murmur is heard from them
over the action of the republican con
A half dozen of the democratic
"push" a few davs previous to the
convention had "something up their
sleeve" and they confidentially stated
that Jerome was going' to exact all
and give nothing, and from county
divisiou to county offices it was to
"deliver the goods."
The contrary has prevailed. In
stead of these gentlemen, who are
residents of a city that has the greet
United Verde mine at lis door, de
manding for their section any regard
of a municipal or corporate interest
whatever, they earnestly and will
ingly cooperated with their fellow
republicans and laliored for the com
mon good. In caucus they asked for
nothing and in the convention thev
j ranted around republican iuterests
j without the attachment of a corpor
I ate collar on their necks or a pair of
partisan hobbles o:i their feet,
on any issue personal or sectional.
Nothing that can be anchored to
.hem other than that of loyalty on
tfafcilaoad lines of duty to republi
canism can be misconstrued.
County division, an issue which
'two years ago had its enthusiastic
supporters iu Jerome and was backed
1 accordingly by every man who came
to Prescott ou Monday as a delegate,
was as silent as a Sphvux, and the
subject was not permitted to be heard
or considered, either politically or
commercially. Cn the contrary the
delegates were frank aud candid iu
expressing their views and as lieiug
opposed to the measure.
Ou the question of party recogni
tion, tne delegation asked for not an
office aud further than that would
not have one.
We are sorry for Jerome. Sorry
for it because the plans of the op
position party have miscarried, and
instead of a vicious and unmerciful
fight from temporary officers to the
last office, the great United Verde
mine of Senator Clark cannot for
once be wedded to the republican
party as it was to be in the late re
publican convention of Yavapai
county, by those democrats who jxise
as deities on the shrine of political
Considering its industrial surround
ings iu miues, timber and agricultural
interests, its magnificent proportions
as a city, the present disregard shown j
it in public improvements that are
due it offieiallv in many ways, Jerome
boon its burdens silently and with
out a murmur, when it should not.
It is simpiy paying tribute to Yava
pai. Wheu the time comes for a divi
sion of the county, and when a fair
and equitable adjustment of the vari
ous geographical, aud financial ques
tions can be amicably considered by
a commission, we doubt if there will
be any controversy whatever over the
divisiou of Yavapai on that line.
The growth of Yavapai is general,
aud the comparative isolation of
Jerome in particular must of neces
sity iu the near future be considered
in the same regard that gave Arizona
its Cocomiuo, and that took away
Tonto Basin from Yavapai.
Voicing the sentiments of there
publican delegates from Jerome, the
question of creating a new county is
unauthorized, and taking that into
consideration, and also the harmoni
ous attitude of the delegation, their
loyalty to party principles, and the
sacrificing of every thintr due them,
does it appear to honest aud fearless
manhood that H. J. Allen had them
shackled together as slaves in the
disgraceful duty that democracy
would have them pictured in the
columns of that democratic mass of
alarm in degredatiou and vitupera
tion, the Courier.

Plainly Put tc the Public.
To the Citi.ens of Pn-eoti:
The Uestifn of fuel is oae ol vast

Wood is scarce, coal is high anil as
yet erode oil i iu the experimental
atage. The natural solution to the
problem is gas.
I have eoine to yoor city with a
vi'W of securing your eoojieration iu
placing within its limits a plant, first
clast, in every respect, for the manu
facture of gas from crude oil. It
means an expenditure of from forty
to fifty thousand dollars. It is the
latest and and most improved pro
cess and places in the pipes for dis
tribution a clear pure gas which can
be used for cooking, heating and also
lighting. The pure nature of the
gas produces a light in each jet from
twenty to twenty-eight candle power
giving a brilliant yet mellow light.
The price at which this gas is to be
delivered is one that places this
product within reach of every one
and making an estimated reduction
in the cost of fuel, wood or coal at
present prices of at least one-third.
A good gus system is what is
needed and I am here for the purpose
of securing encouragement in filling
I do ask for contracts because, tay
people are strangers to your city and
are not established here.
The contracts are of the most lib
eral nature and are so arranged that
all the people of Prescott will be en
abled to use the gas if they so desire.
You get the pipe to your curb and
the use of the meter free of charge.
You can get a stove or heater from
52.00 to as high as you care to go
and pay for it in monthly install
ments of $1 eadh.
With all due respect to the com
pany who have signified their inten

political consideration whatever given
the controversy in those sections at
present and the association of either
of the two parties with the problem
other than that of a personal nature,
is not to be considered.
Remains of the Unknown Suicide Near
Joe Burke, who has been visiting
friends in Williams, inforuis us that
a sheepherder in the employ of Capt.
Smith, found the body of a man a
short distance from Seligman yester
day morning. The body was reduced
to a skeleton and identification was
impossible. In the clothes was
found $.'100 in gold, some silver and
currency, but nothing that would
lead to the identity of the remains.
The hat found near the bxly con
tained the name of a mercantile firm
at The Dalies, Oregon. A bullet
hole in the skull and a revolver
beside the corpse told the tale of the
snuffing out of this life. Aliout three
months ago a stranger left two grips
at lhe Harvey house at Seligman and
stated that he was going out a short
duttaaee and would soon return. He
oever cane back and it was supposed
that the grewsome find was the Ixxly
of this man. The same day a Rheep
bevder lor Skinny Welch found the
Ixxlv of another man several miles
from Seligman and a party had been
sent out to make an investigation.

A Journal-Miner representative
called upou Mr. F. M. Murphy, pres
ident of the Poland Mining company,
today, to ascertain from him the rea
son for the men quitting work on the
Lynx Creek end of the Poiand-Lvnx
Creek tunnel. At the time the re
porter called. Mr. Murohv had not
been advised that any differences
existed between employees and the
company, and remarked that he
hardly believed the men had quit as
he knew of no reason why they
should. He said he was afraid, how
ever, that between now and election
time there was likeiy to be more or
less trouble, as there appeared to lie a
disposition on the part of those per
sonally interested in the success of
the democratic ticket iu this countv.
and throughout the territory, gener
ally, to work upon the prejudices of
the members of and sympathizers
with labor organizations in such a
way as to encourage trouble between
employer anil employee: and that it
was very unfortunate, indeed, that
such conditions should exist, as it
could not help but work a hardship
not only to the employee, but to the
business interests of the territory as
Continuing, Mr. Murphy said that
it must be apparent to the merchant,
as well as to the fanner, that if the
mines iu this territory are forced to
remain idle through the unreason
ableness of the agitator, be he poli
tician or not, the effect will be far
reaching, and every interest suffer.
The mine owner who has a property
for sale, or the prospector who has a
prospect to be opened up. will be the
first to feel the damaging influences
that are today at work calculated to
unsettle the prosperous conditions
now existing throughout the ter
ritory. Mr. Murphy further remarked that
it was a great surprise to him to find
that for the sake of getting coutrol of
certain remunerative offices in the
various counties, and in the hope of
electing a delegate to congress, the
democratic politicians to a large ex
tent, were not only pleased with the
fact that there were certain differ
ences existing between capital and
labor (largely imaginary ) but were
doing all they poaathn could to
widen the breach, in the hope that
they might profit thereby at the com
Mr. Murphy was asked by the re
porter how he personally regarded
the right of lalwr to organize, and re
plied that he believed all classes of
labor have the right to organize; not,
however, to the extent of interfering
with the rights of American citizens
who may not choose to organize, or
join a union or assoaiation. but who
desire and have the right in this free
country, to seek, and if possible, ob
tain legitimate employment in ac
cordance with their individual ideal
of propriety aud lhe needs of their
families. He believed that there
should be no discrimination between
union and non-union men.
In conclusion he said he was afraid

The crutch is a poor substitute for legs, and affords a very
inconvenient ami tiresome mode of locomotion there is no more
pathetic aifcht than a person slowly and painfully moving along the
street supported by these artificial limbs.
When Rheumatism settles in the bones and muscles of the legs,
it is safe to predict that the victim will eventually become helpless
and cmtch-Jiound. The corrosive, irritating matter thai is deposited
in the joints and muscles causes the most intense pain, the knees
and ankles swell, and when the natural oils and fluids that lubricate
these parts are completely destroyed the joints become locked and
the muscles drawn and stiff, and crutches a necessity.
The acid poisons that produce rhTimatic pains form in the blood, and are
distributed through the system, and todged in the anus, shoulders, hands,
back and feet, or other parts of the body resulting often in total disability.
A permanent cure of Rheumatism can be effected only by a complete cleans
ing of the blood, and no other remedy so surely accomplishes this as S. S. S.
It neutralizes the acid effects, purifies and invigorates the stagnant blood.
and the gritty particles are washed out or dislodged
by the new rich blood, and relief comes to the
pain -racked sufferer. S. S. S. leaves no morbid,
irritating matter in the blood to reunite and produce
another attack, but expels every atom of it from
the system. S. S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy, and does not impair
the digestion or general health like alkali or potash remedies.

advice or other information is wanted, our physicians will gladly furnish
it without chaige. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, GA.
