A DESPERATE fCUD.
Undertook to Graze Sheep hi
fighting Continued Over a Year--torv
of the famous War.
"Tho most desperate feud ever
known in the southwest grew out of an
attempt to graze sheep in Pleasant val
ley, in upper Tonto Basin, Arizona.
The noted Towksbury brothers under
took the engineering of the operation.
They succeeded. But when the sheep
side of the controversy had forged to
the front thirty-two men were. dead.
Tho casualties were not incurred in
pitohed engagements. The fighting
continued during a year or longer in
the late eighties. It was dono in Ken
tucky vendetta style. Most of the men
who 'went over the divide' were am
bushed on mountain trails and shot in
A Tewksbury household wasbesoiged
by a dozen members of the Graham
faction, the opposing party. When an
old man, Al Rose, went out in the early
morning for a pail of water, he was
shot and killed within fifty, feet of the
doorstep. And there the corpse lay
unburied for three days in the full
glare of tho summer sun. Tho men
withlt. the house, stolid in their Buffer
ing from thirst, appealed for permis
sion to bury their dead. Tt was domed
This is only a fair sample of the atro
cities that marked the progress of the
feud. Tho Pleasant valloy war ended
only when all the surviving rombatantsf
together with most of their neighbors
were gathered up and taken to Pres
cott by a squadron of Yavapai county
officers, headed by Sheriff William
O'Neill, the same 'Buckey' O'Neill
who was killed before San Juan hill,
leading his troop of Rough Riders.
A soothing influence was atso exerted
by Sheriff Commodore Owens, of
Apache county, who caught four of the
sheep faction In a house at Holbrook.
The four broke from the house by four
different routes, through doors and
windows, hoping to pot the sheriff by a
divided fire. All alone he calmly
started to pump his Winchester rifle,
apparently heedless of the rain ol'lead.
When he had finished the four,w(ire
dead, and the cool little sheriff had' hot
a scratch. At the last only a single
male of the Graham blood remained
alive. He gave np the light and fled to
the Salt River valley where he mar
ried and settled down to a quiet farm
life. While marketing his first crop of
grain he was shot from ambush on the
road to Tempe. The deed was done by
two unmasked horsemen, ideptified by
two young women as Ed Tewksbury
and his right-hand man, John Rhodes.
The latter was rather summarily dis
charged from custody by a justice of
the peace, after a narrow escape from
death at the hands of Graham's young
widow, who had brought her husband's
trusty revolver to th' court room.
Tewksbury was found guilty of murder
in the first degree But n sharp law
yer found that the clerk of the court
had failed to enter the plea of "Not
Guilty," though the notes of the court
stenographer showed the plea had been
made in proper form; so the care was
twice retired with hung juries, and
finally the prisoner was turned loose.

Supply of Copper.
The Metul Reporter, of New York,
says of the red metal: There has been
talk lately that the visible supply of
copper is light. At the end of January
the visible supply, .according to Mor
ton's figures., was 21,337 tons. On Aug.
15 tho European visible supply wo3 33,
000 tons. This was the largest stork
sinco August 31, 1897, when Merton &.
Co. gave the stock as33,2fi7 tons. Mean
time the price of co'pper has risen from
59 2s. 6d. to 74 8s. 9d..
Copper production has not increased
materially during two years of excep
tionally high prices. Exports say it
takes two years to turn a copper pros
pect into a producer of metal. We are
approaching the period when the pros
pects of two years back will becorao
Consumption of the metal goes on at
a good rate and the market may at any
moment resume greater activity. Cop
per sways its potent ceptor over all
metals, and with new developments and
enterprises for its use both at home
and abroad, it certainly looks encour
aging to copper interests for a long
time to come nothing can take tho
place of copper successfully.
CHINA'S SECRET SOCIETIES.
The Leading; Men Are Those Who
Have Been Dlsnppolnted In
Trying to Obt"ln Office.
The most important of those socle
ties, are known under the names of the
"Trinity," the "Poignard," the "Pure
Tea," the "Knife's Sect," the "Vem
phar" and the most widely 6pread
among- the cultured classes i& called
"Heaven, Earth, Man," says a Paris pa
per. The society of the Boxers is a branch
from the "Closed Hand," and they
muet have been called jo by some Eng
lish sporting men residing in China.
The mother society is one of those in
numerable associations which exist in
the Celestial empire, as there existed
in Spain- the "Black Hand," in Italy
the "Carbonari," the "Mafia," the
"Camorra," etc. China, with its dense
population and democratic regime, is
a benighted1 land for sucn associations.
They disguise themselves under all
kinds of inoffensive appearances, phi
lanthropic, philosophic" or utilitarian
Thus- the "Closed Hand" claims to be
merely a gymnastic association, with
out any religious or philosophic tend
encies. It aims at a race war, a war
of revenge, against the Manchus, the
conquerors of China. But its branch,
the Boxers, leaves to the future the
settlement of that question, and1 aims
at the destruction of the Europeans,
whose infiltration into China is of
more recent date and- is soire, if unre
stricted, to absorb and' conquer peace
fully the Chinese race as thoroughly
as it has been subjugated by the Man
chus. These associations include all the
disappointed men who have passed
those examinations without which no
office can be obtained in China, but
which do not guarantee the holding
of such offices, for there are more ap
plicants than places. lese are at the
head of most of the secret societies.
They teach to the uneducated mem
bers that the invasion of foreigners
has caused the misery and want of
workjrecently so prevalent in China.
NEW FACTS ABOUT MALARIA.
What the Researches of a German
Salentlst In New Guiana
In a recent issue of the Deutsche
Medizinische Woekenschrift there ia
an interesting account of the discov
eries made by Prof. Koch in German
New Guinea in regard' to malaria. The
professor began his investigations at
Stephansort, and learned that 25 per
cent, of the population of that place
were suffering from malaria. Out of
21 Europeans, 12 were sick; out of
240 Chinese, 63; out of 209 Malays,
53, and out of 264 Melanesians, 29. In
New Hanover not a single Melanesian
was afflicted with the malady, where
as out of 19 Melanesians of Gardner's
islands 9 were ill. In King William's
Land, as in Java, Prof. Koch found' a
large number of native children in
fected with the disease, and as a re
sult he maintains that only by a thor
ough examination of the children can
it be ascertained whether any dis
trict is infected or not
The entire coast of King William'a
Land is, he thinks, infected, while
the neigh ooring islands seem to .be
more or less free from the disease.
The presence of malaria in some placec
and' not in others may De accounted
for in a measure by the rormation of
the land and by the unusual activity
of the pestiferous Anophelis flies.. It
would be unwise, however, says Prof.
Koch, to attach too much weight to
these factors, andi especially to the
latter, since these flies are to be found
in region which are wholly free from

An English officer in Malta stopped,

from Major Barry:
"Taku General Chaffee has every
thing well in hand. His driving power
materially assisted the prompt relief of
the legation, and the condition of the
troops is good."
London, Sept. -1. Pending a full re
port from the British minister at Pek
ing, the British government will not
commit itself regarding the future
steps in China. The trend of official
opinion seems to favor retirement from
Peking to Tien Tsin, but not, the evac
uation of China.
Paris, Sept. 4. France has not yet
replied to Russia's note regarding the
withdrawal of troops from Peking.
Delca'se, the minister of foreign affairs,
and Prince Oroussow, the Russian am
bassador, went to Rambouilla today to
confer the decoration of the Russian
order of Standrew upon President Lou
bet. It is believed this will give an op
portunity for an exchange of views that
will affect the ministerial meeting
scheduled for tomorrow. France fav
ors peace, but is not sure that the with
drawal of the troops is the quickest
method to obtain it.
Many papers continue to express dis
trust of the intentions of several of the
powers', especially Great Britain and
France, claiming tbey have separate
plans regarding the Yang-Tso valley
and the southern provincos. So far as
Russia is concerned, the German press
is not exercised, because it has been
officially admitted by Germany that
Germany does not oppose any Russian
plans affecting the northern provinces,
as not touching Germany's commercial
or political interest.
The belief is generally held here by
both the government and the press that

Shanghai, Sept. 4. It is reported
that an Imperial edict has been issued

Chicago, Sept. 4. A dispatch to the

protest against the withdrawal of the
Americans from Peking, and implore
the president to refuse to recognize the
Empress Dowager and Earl Li, and to
lend his influence toward the restora

Island of Formosa was ceded to Japan
in 1895, after the war with China. In
1897 Germany seized the port of Kiou
Chou on the east coast of the Shantunc
peninsula, her excuse for so doing be
ing a massacre of missionaries which
had taken place, there. Two months
later she received from China a 9J-year
lease of the port and district. Ia 1898
Russia obtained from China a 25-year
lease of Port Arthur, Talienwan and
their adjacent territories and waters.
The lease can be extended by mutual
agreement. The same year the Chinese
government gave permission for Great
Britain to occupy Wei-Hal-Wei for as
long a period as Russia shall hold Port
Arthur. To compensate France for
the concessions given to Great Britain
and Russia a 99-year lease was given
her of the bay of Kwang-Chau-Wan, on

and last year two islands at the en
