of high and low degree of all par-Moo
from an parts of the state to Phoenix,
withf the result that wherever two or .
three or more men are gatherea to
gether, whether on the street. In Ihe
lobbies of the hotels, or even on the
fair grounds, one may be sure that
politics are being discussed. And the
discussion of politics is not left alone
to the men; the women are deeply in
terested because they say they have
learned that the proposed amendment
to the constitution giving the women
of Arizona the right to vote at all
elections is in danger of being defeated
The .Democrats are charged with se-
fT?2t32Si ih!faXtn .
and it is also charged that the Royal
Arch, the big, powerful association of
liquor dealers, is ready to pour a big
-siusn tuna into tne state during the
last two or three days of the cam
paign, to defeat universal suffrage,
fearing that if- votes are given women,
the latter will vote for laws looking to
the absolute suppression of liquor
triffic in Arizona.
Members of the Arisona division of
the Royal Arch deny that the organisa
tion ie taking any part in tne cam
paign, or spending a dollar to defeat
the woman's suffrage amendment. The
Democratic leaders deny with much
vehemence that they are secretly or
otherwise working against the amend
ment, which will permit the women of
Arizona to line up at the ballot box
with their husbands, brothers or
fathers if they desire to do so.
The Fight la Maricopa.
While the visiting politicians are re
turlng to their homes, as soon as they
have seen the fair and have talked
-with their state leaders, to look after
their own fences- in their own baili
wicks, the candidates for presidential
electors and for congress, of all parties;
have been thrown into Maricopa county
for the remaining days of the cam
paign, as Maricopa is regarded as the
key to the situation and the party car
rying it will have a shade the best of
it throughout the state. All parties
now claim it and each is endeavoring
to make good the claim.
While Maricopa is being "spell
bound' 'and "gum-sboed," an occa
sional foray will be made into Pima,
Cochise and Gila, all of which are re
garded as worth fighting for and to
keep the voters on edge until election
The Democrats have the situation
figured out like this:
They say that there are about 33,000
registered voters in the state and they
estimate that about 3C.000 votes will

down about 20 feet. The e.ntire shaft
is In pay ore. The ore is sulphides,
bornite and carbonltes of copper and
chrysacolla. Average samples have
been submitted to the smelter and it
has offered the owners $10.50 per ton
for the ore.
"This is my first mining venture,"
said judge Harper, "and I am going
into this on the -dvice and judgment
of experts who have examined the
mine. Recently an expert of the Colo
rado Fuel & Iron company visited that
locality to look at the iron deposit.
He stated that the indications were
most favorable for the presence of im
