These atmospheric poisons are breathed into the lungs and taken up
by the blood, and the foundation of some long, debilitating illness is laid.
Chills and fever, chronic dyspepsia, torpid and enlarged liver, kidney

Malaria. Noxious gases and unhealthy matter collect in the system because
the liver and kidneys fail to act, and are poured into the blood current until
it becomes so polluted and sluggish that the poisons literally break through
the skin, and carbuncles, boils, abscesses, ulcers and various eruptions of an
indolent character appear, depleting the system, and threatening life itself.
The germs and poisons that so oppress and weaken the body and destroy
the life-giving properties of the blood, rendering it thin and watery, must
be overcome and carried out of the system before the patient can hope to
get rid of Malaria and its effects.

James Shirley's Copper River En
terprise in Alaska is Commenc
ing to Attract the Atten
tion of Copper Pro
ducers and Capi
A Consolidation of interests in
Buffalo Effected. Backed by
Some of the Biggest Capi
talists of New York
and Other Cities.
In the past three days there has
been perfected in Buffalo a combina
tion of the richest copper interests in
the world, involving- seven companies
with a total of SS0.000.000. The
combine does not include the Amal
gamated. Calumet iV Hecla and Clark
interests, having exclusive use of the
Garretson smelter and being able to
laud copper, according to their
: their claims, in New York at two
cents it pom: ; and make money,
whereas the cheapest copper so far
has cost live times as much.
For the last year copper investors
have beea rather apprehensive on ac
count of the Alaskan discoveries.
The richest of these is the copper
mountain near Yaldez. Alaska, and
130 miles inland from the seaport of
: Yaldez. on the Copper river.
Two prospectors found gulches
i ther- in which poaJJara fallen from
j the sides were sevntv per cent cop
j per. and after securing their rights to
hi nil hi if iizd TKo VII ..lit,.
like find was snapped up bv four
men. Frederick J. Abbott, F. C.
Bradshaw. James Shirley and F.
Heim, backed bv an English jadi
leate of tOtifiOOflOQ. After examina
jtions by United States geologists and
: their report that more than three
billion dollars' worth of sixty seventy
: and eighty per cent ore lay in sight,
more than could lie mined in twentv
yean, the Copper Hiver Mining com
pany was formed with Bradshaw as
its president, and ollices at Xo. 7
Wall street. New York.
The oilier great factor in the allied
intensts is the tiarretson smelter.
' the invention of O. S. Garretson of
Buffalo. N . Y., who has in a short
time leaped to enormous wealth by
his holding of copper property.
The smelter is the one process of
lita kind poaaihiaaawl was the result
of ten years of lalx. All that is
ueeessary is to shovel the ore into it
and the refuse makes the fuel, which
smelts the ore. So cheaply can it be
operated, it is acknowledged bv all
copper -experts, that the bi-product.
(the gold, silver anil commercial
.chemicals, cau be sold for enough to
; pay the coat of the mining and
: smelting of the ore, so that the cop
per can U- given away for nothing.
.lames Smiley, through whose ef
forts .the allying of interests was
effected, puts the situation concisely
"W'e could mine copper for almost
nothing up at Yaldez, and the Gar-
I retsons could smelt it for little more
than nothing. There is a market
for all the copper that can be pro
duced. It will replace sheet iron, tiu
, and all raefc metals, will cheapen
I electricity of all sorts one-half, and
so all that remiiead to be done was
for the Gaiietson smelter to be conj
oined with our mines, all of the sub-
! let Garret sou lights gathered into the
; fold and the allied interests cau die-
i tale, and will henceforth do so. the
1 price of copper for the world. VYc
are not going to light the outside
'people. The light is over. They
bare Failed to get in. YYhat is there
: left to do when we can produce and
place on the market pure copper for
0T fifth of their price?"
The Method of allying the numer
ous and illy assorted interests, so tar
j as sie was concerned, was a simple
matter and alters the capita!ization
of none til" the companies, uor will it
for the prest :it disiurb their organi
zations or operations in the very
least. Beea nee the allied interests
can sell so far below the outside, ac-
cording to their claims, is no sign
they intend to do so. tor thaw do not.
I Tbey will control the market, reap-
; ing the profit of KKI per cent on their
product. Tie re can be but two re
sults, so the leaders .-ay. and they
are. the ootaadera arill lw forced into
a combination on costly terms or
eefc other ti Ids of iudustrv.
The met hod of combination was
that I). S. (Janetson, arbo owns a cou-
i trolling interest, or has virtual con
trol through his patents, of the OT
eral companies now using' his smel
ter, entered into a compact with the
I Copper Hirer .Mining company, the
teims of which are unknown, but it is
believed that for the exclusive use of
his furnace, except as limited by the
allied companies, he receives .520,00(1.
000 of the Alaska interests
Mr. Gatretsoa will conduct all of
kia operations from Buffalo, ao thai
the control of the copper market will
be centered here, which is quite fit

through the Green Consolidated liti
gation, in which efforts were made to
rob him of his large holdings and he
and his confreres entered upon what
is held to have been one of the most
bitter legal fights ever waged in the
United States courts.
Mr. Shirley is inclined to the belief
that Valdez is the future capital of
Alaska. Alaska is mining country,
and Yaldez is being made its natural
outlet, abetted by the railroad now
building which will tap the richest
mineral section, and the consequence
will be that Valdez will be the city.
It is expected that the building of
the twelve furnaces may require ad
dition to Garretsou's local facilities,
but Mr. Garretson said to a Courier
reporter yesterday that these things
had not as yet been decided uixiu.
He refused also to consent to the
publication of the names of the sev

men who have interested themselves

Political and Business Reasons
Why Hon. R. E. Morrison Should
Be Elected to Congress.
The Case Clearly and Forcibly
Stated By a Former Resident
of Yavapai County.
Col. L. F. Eggers. a former ilis
triet attorney of this county, but now j
a resident of Globe, in a communica
tion to the Silver Belt, make- a
strong endorsement of K. E. Morri
son's caudidacy for delegate to con
gress. The communication follows:
"As a citizen of Gila county, Ari
zona, I beg leave to sav something
relating to our representation in con
gress for the next term. Whatever
political views our citizens may en
tertain on the issues involved in the
campaign and placed before them, I
take it that they should not forget
that during the next two years, if not
longer, the national administration is
and will be under the controlling in
fluence of the republican party. That
by reason of said fact the various de
partments of the government are and
will lie filled by men of its choice,
and a delegate to congress going
there, at variance with said party or- '
ganization, will of necessity be !
greatly lessened in influence, and
tins territory be ueprivett ot the
recognition they as a people could
have if they were represented bv a
man whose code of proceedure was in
unison with the administration. A.-k
yourself this question: "If vou had
some individual matter of importance 1
you desired pressed in your favor at J
the seat of government, would you
send there a man friendly or uu- i
friendly to the administration?'
"Again K. E. Morrison, the nomi
nee of the republican party of Ari- 1
zona, is an old citizen of the territory,
a man well equipped in exjierience of j
affairs territorial and national: is iin-1
bued with broad ideas and statecraft;
is iu complete sympathy with all
classes of citizens; knows by indi
viiual experience the pinchings of i
poverty, his heart and mind lean
iirmly toward the sous of toil. He is
a young man of ability and great in-
dividual courage: has resided here
since a boy. I have known him per
sonally since 18H4, in Arizona, and
they who know him liest speak of
him in highest terms of commeuda
tion. He has been the district attor
ney of Yavapai county, and the
United States attorney for Arizona.
in both of which posi'tious he dis
played ability, zeal and worth. He,
is a fine advocate, an experienced
Maraer, as all the members of the iwr
will recognize, and through his cour- ;
age, culture and trained sagacity he j
would soon lie given 'the right of 1
way' iu the halls of congress.
"You say you need especial recog
nition iu very mauv respects.
"If you will cast aside 'old dogmas
and old ideas.'and look facts square
in the face, you cannot help but see
that the most feasible prox)sition for
our remote, scattered and undevel- j
oped resources of Arizona, is not to
have, as is by many expected, that
'the tail wags the dog.' but to place
ourselves in line where we can and
will receive all the n-coguition we are :
entitled to. This change would he
speedily recognized by lioth the ex- !
ecutive and legislative departments
of the government, ami if it is state- :
hood you are very desirous of procur- ,
ing and want, iu the utmost good :
faith, its accomplishment can liese-l
cured with more certainty by Mr. j
Morrison than by Mr. Wileoa.
"And iu all the years that Mr. Mor- ;
rison has resided iu Arizona, no man :
can say of him that his personal cou-1
duet has ever cast a cloud upon him- :
self and his family. He is Ixtth j
clean, worthy and competent, and
the recognition due both himself and
his people, hieaptitiw of ' partv,
would soon lie made kaanifest at the
seat of government ii delegate to
congress from Arizona.
I regard his nomination one of the
best ever made in this territorv."

MINES AND MINING.
WORK AGAIN COMMENCED ON
THE NEW YEAR. A PROMISING
CHAPARRAL MINE. -A VAST
SAMPLING PROPOSITION AT
FOOLS GULCH. MERCHANTS'
MINING COMPANY PROGRESS.
The First Home.
Arrivals from the Poland section
today gave nothing but the usual
good rerts of the First Home mine
of the Merchants' Mining company.
The work is progressing earnestly
and satisfactorily and the showing
continues as good as previously re
ported. The late strike has not as
yet died out iu mining circles, and
seems to serve as an inducement for
other claims near by to become ac
tive in oeratious and interested in
regard. The work now going on in
the Fit si Home in driving the 100
foot level from the south to the north
shaft for the pwrpoee of btoehiaajon
the ore bavweea them. While this,
work i-i going on the 240 foot level is
being driven north. A great deal of
interest follows present operations on
this property, the general opinion
being that it is destined to be not
only a le-avv producer, but likewise
one that will give it a high regard in
value of output. Everything in and
about the mine so far as management
and abilitv go. continues iu a most
systematic and practical manner, and
thi- fact alone impiesses the miner
ant gives the mine more than the
At Fools Gulch.
One of tho gigantic mining uuder- !
takings at aneeal in evidence in this
section is that attending the oper- ,
at ions on the Plant flat ma claims in
Foots1 gulch, l uder the stiperiu- '
tendency of Y. A. Clark, a gigantic
test run of l.Ot'O tons of ore is now in
progress, and it arill take until about
the iirst of the year to complete it.
The sample run now lieing made is
lot the purpjse of giving thi- mine a J
thorough and practical test ot its
wealth pending its sale to an eastern
syndicate. No particular place iu
this, property is furnishing the ore
and no special a-sorting of the same
is permitted. IF the sample run is
a favorable one in value, it means
the outlaying of a vast sum of money
not only in that section but elsewhere
ear EVeseott. The new company
which s behind this Fools' gulch
project, h ive il-. i lately b.iuded the
Yarneil. the Herndon Jk Norris and
other claim-, sum.- twenty-live iu all.
and iu their scoe all the available
mining ground between Yarneil and I
Fools' gulch i taken. The same j
company ia ahm Ofmmjang in the
Bradshaws on au extensive scale.1

The New Year.
It seems tiiat where there is so
much general activity and promin
ence as is centered today in and
around especially the Chapaial dis
trict, there would hardly lie enough
mines to go around. Iu this old time
favored ami productive region, one
by one of late have the many mines
commenced to Ik- opened up again,
and the result is the -ame. As depth
is Kaeneo ana a iveopmenipmernuj
H given, the snowing is nnar aoiv
flattering, llus ts so on the Leland,
The Dividend, the 1 alo Alto and
others lying side by side, not to men
tion near bv neigiilsus. like the Mc
Cabe. the Cdadstotie and other mines
of OBqnestionab'e riches. It is this
spirit that has protmbly been behind
the reorganization of the New Year
mine aud the determination to work
it again in the f'llure as it has never
lieen before. Another feature of this
last named property must lie men
tioned the fact that it is a close cor
poration and has none of those char
acteristics to in ike it a go by going
on the market. This in itself gives
it a better rating and consideration
than if it am, It shows that it is
certainly a favored claim so far as
development indicates, and lieing .so
regarded uii; have more or less of a
merit to warrant expenditure of large
sums of uiouev. The New Year
claim is now assuming au interested
rating in mining, and the !m ginning
of operations again i- watched with a
great deal of interest. Our reporter
who lab Iy pa fd along the zone it
lays on. and watched the preparatory
iuauguratiou oi work at that poiut,
as well as in other uiiues.and learned
also that the famous Little Jessie
was again to lie operated en I gigan
tic scale, was impressed highly with
the mining outlook of that particular
section. The New Year is a decided
ly good looking piece of ground, car
rying sulphide ore that will run
alkiut $20 iu gold. It has a well de
fined fissure vein of three feet, with a
ahafl some three him.ir, .1 leet deep.
and with about 200 leet of drifting.

This will le a big property some day

I have heard some people laugh
about building au ehftrie car iiue

almost enough extra power to run
the line. It co:.ts a lot of monev to
feed the amount of stock now freight

curing the former's election as sheriff
as well as dark for attorney. Mr.
Murphy would then have Roberts ar
inal the mi'ier. Clark convict him.
and tlie judge whom he controlled
sentence him. Richardson further
staled that there were two methods
