A recent dispatch from Butte, Mont.,
says: "There is death in tho air hero

and then goes on to state that "five
deaths occurred one day and tlnee tho
next moniin,', all atributablo directly
to this cause." No such disastrous
consequences arc attached to the smelter
smoke heio. In fact, though often
disagreeable, the smelter smoke here is
claimed to bo healthy lather than othen
wiee, and one' gentleman who came liorc
some time ago suffering with asthma"
has fully recovered and gono homo to
Sautf)iego, Calif., and he attributes his
cute to the bet oficial effects of the smoke

It has and will bo the aim of Tnn
Oiut to, in every way at its command,
aid any and every legitimate industry
of this territory, and especially of
Cochise county. However much hm
been (-aid of our mining industry in
past, years, it is still in its infancy in
thisscctioH of tho conntiy. We havn,
at the present time, but two companies
in the county who ate rroecuting min
ing with any degree of Miceess, or at
least whoe properties are paving divi
dends to the owners, and these aro the
Copper Queen of Bisbee ami the Com
monwealth properties at Pearce. Vi'ork
on these nroporties, in both instances,
is proFOcu ted by companies of huge cap
ital, and who are growing liuher e n:h
nay fiom tho pioeeedn of their mines,
and who stop at. no impeding olwt'iele
but remove it and push forward w th
I lie single idea of making their mines a
financial success, which has and is be
ing done every day. But white thi-is
a fact, it-ia no ;i'i:uiiM'nt against the de
vclopmcni of oilier pioperties, of which

would yield large profits if work could
be advantajieously prosecuted. In ihe
Dragoon range' theie aie many prop

have claims which ate said to be rich
in copper, and which carry both gold
and silver, which, if they could bo
worked advantageously, would yield
abund.inj. returns for the investment
made. Also the new Wolframite mines
near Ruesellville, which were recently
sold to eastern capitalists, will undoubt
edly be in the list of dividend paying
mines eie -another twelve months, for
the metal is there and only awaits the
magic touch of capital to bring it to the
suiface. The Black Diamond group of
mines, now under' bond to a Now York
syndicate, is believed to be n very val
uable property and will, no doubt, be
made to fall into line with other paying
mines in this county in tlie near future.
Still further to the south in this range

owned by the Copper King oi Arizona,
and upon which about thirty men are
now at vork, is known to Iw a great
proporty, for ore in paying quantities

A CONFLICT IN TIIF, LAW.
Opinion of Attorney General Fitzger
ald on the California Mining Law.
"In reply to numerous inquiries
touching the validity of the territorial
mining law enacted by the ISth legis
lative aescmhly of Arizona, we aro able,
through theklndneai of Judge Jas. S.
Robinson of this place, to herewith
givo tho official opinion of tho attorney
general of California, which is adverse
to tho mining laws of that state, yhieh
ureal liiost identical with onr local kitvn,
butnot so inimical to the interests of
the prospector and locator. Judge
Fitzgerald was at one time judge of
this judicial district and afterward as
sociate justice of the supreme court of
California, and his opinion corries with
it much weight. Following is tho at
torncy ueneral's opinion on the Cali
fornia law :
San Fiuxcisco, Juno 29, 1897.
Lo8Angelo9 Chamber ot Commerce,
Lo3 Angeles, Cal.
Gentlemen : I am in receipt of your
favor of recent date, enelosinga clippinu
from the Los Angeles Times, relative to
the new mining law enacted by o n- last
legislature and suggesting that there is
a conflisct between such portions of
that law as1 r "quire a certain amount of
assessment work upon mines located
under the federal laws to be done within
n specified time, and the federal laws
telatiye to the same subject, and in
which you request my opinion as to
whether or not such a conflict exists.
By section 2324 of theltovUedStatulcs
i( the'U. S. it is leij tingd that no- less
than $100 woith of labor "shall be per
I'oriiiL'd or' improvements macro during
each year-upoi each claim located -after
the 10th day or May, 1872, and until a
patent lias boon issuctTfor.guch a claim,
by the piovisionaof section II of an act
prescribing the. manner of locating min
ing claims upon the public domain of
the United Slates', etc., approved March
27, 18J7, (States.' IS;)?, 214 et seq..) it ic
provided amonu oilier things, ttiat,
'yitliiu e-ix.y days Iroiri the date' of
ihe dihi-ovt'iy ofu vt'U$ or lode, . the
provitleu tnat ",'iiio pe
anco of auclt labor snail -,be deemed a
necessary act in completinif-sueh locat
ion and a patt thereof, and no part
thereof shall inure to the benefit of any
-It will thus bo seen that there is an
attempt on the part o!--the 'slate to rt
qunu ut least Illty iiolhirs worth of loca
tion work to bo dime Mihuiii tune less
than that' prescribed for the doing of the
locution work by the federal statutes.
In the caso of the original Qo. of the V.
and K., etc. vs. tlie Wiutlirop Mining
Co. 00 Cal., 031-2, the opinion of tlio -u-preme
court of this state is as follows :
"We think that the. court erred in
charging the jury-'tliat a locator of a
mining claim jjKUst not Onlyobserve the
law of congress, which requires that ten
dollars worth of labor shall be perform
ed or improvements made eacli year for
each one hundred feet in leangth lonu
tho vein, until a patent shall have boon
issued theicfor, but also the local regu
lation of miners in ihe district, which
require that work shall be done every
sixty days on the ehu'ni. According to
the law of congress, a locator would for
l"it his claim if he did not each year
porfoMii wok or make improvements of
the value of ten dollars for each bundled
feet of the win. llut by the lecal tegu
laiions he would forfeit it if ho did not
I'eiform some work on it, every "sixty
davs. It seems to u-1 that-there is a
clear conflict between the law and the
legtilations. And if there is it is con
ceded that the law must prevail."
1 am of the opinion that the rostra1
lion attempted by the state mining law
of 1807, above quoted, is of a character
similar to the restriction attorn pted by
local regulations which were held in the
caso cited to bo in conflict with the fed
eral mining laws. 1 am, therefore, of
tlio opinion that the requirements of
our statute as to the time within which
assessment work must bo done con
diets 'villi the piovisions of the Ituvieed
Hiimitt'9 of the United States above it
ftwied io. i'etiA"cru iy,
