GROWTH OF ARIZONA.
Leading Paper Gives Reason for Ad
mission of Arizona.
Arizona litis more than doubled Its
population In the past decade. The
census of this year gives the territory
122,212 inhabitants, against 59,620 in
1890. When the census of 1890 was
taken the Indians on the reservations
were not enumerated as inhabitants.
There were 28,409 uboriginal wards on
thesse reservations; thero are only 3,055
now. The majority of the Apachos
have during the past decade been
transferred to Florida and Indian Ter
ritory in the interests of peace. The
policy has born good fruit, Arizona has
in consequence filled up with settlers.
Life and pvoperty are now as secure
there as anywhere in the country.
The wonderful growth of population
is, however, onljj one of the grounds on.
which Arizona will establish its rights
to be admitted by congress to state
hood. A large amount of capital has been
Invested there of late years in mining
properties. The territory is one of the
most attractive mining fields for capi
tal on the Pacific coast. The climate
and geological formations are specially
favorable to the industry. In undevel
oped mineral wealth Arizona stands
peerless in the west. Gold, silver and
copper are the leading mineral prod
uti. As a copper producer it will in a
few years outrank every other section
of the country. Although many of the
copper properties there are still under
going development, they are listed
among the biggest dividend paying
mines in the United States.
Coincident with all this mining de
velopment is a gradual unfolding of
agricultural resources, of which he
Territory was not considered a few
years ago to be possessed. Experi
ence is proving that there are large
areas of land in Arizona which can be
made highly productive under a proper
system of tillage. Tho arable land are
contributing largely toward the sup
port of the present population, and it is
not unreasonable to assume that in
time the Territory will be self-supporting
in tho matter of fruits grain and
lire stock. The development of miner
al wealth is giving encouragement to
agriculture and introducing artifically
elements which are essential to the lat
ter's success, but which nature has
scantily provided. Chronicle,
P B. McCabe of this city returned
yesterday from a visit to the Dos Ca
bezas mines near Willcox, Arizona. He
speaks with considerable enthusiasm
the outlook of that property whieh
seems to be a very good copper propo
sition presenting great possibilities.
The Dos Cabezas mine is fourteen
miles southeast of Willcox and is now
fairly well developed in preliminary
work. A ten foot body of 25 per cent
copper and another sixty foot body of 3
per cent constitute the discoveries at
prsesnt, and it is thought these are
stringers of the main body for which a
tunnel is now being driven. The tun
nel is 7x5 feet and has been carried in
A'lower tunnel cuts in at the 275 foot
level but tho workings are not yet un
der the apex where it is expected the
largest body is.
Altogether 1720 feet of development
work has been done. In the long tun
nel three shifts of men are working
with Rand drills.
The raise In the tunnel is very
small, being only enough to allow the
cars to run out. Blowers and steam
shoots have prevented tho accumula
tion of bad air, and up to this time no
difficulty has arrisen from that cause.
John Cfl, of Los Angeles, is presi
dent of the Dos Cabezas company and
several other local men are lnteresed.
Claim Against the Boers.
Washington, Nov. 1C A number
of persons claiming to be American
citizens have submitted to tho State
Department claims against the Boers

ange Free States. No decision has been
arrived at as to what disposition shall
be made of these cases.

Are Executed at Tomb
THE MURDER FOR WHICH THEY
Were Found Guilty The Men Died
BraveA Large Assemblage
A large number ol stctatora were
admitted to the enclosed space before
noon every care being taken to secure
against interruption as the result of
any display of feeling or excitement on
the part of those who had thus seour
ed admission. At the hour appointed the
condemned men were led from their
cell to the Scaffold.
The crowd stood silent in expect
ation while the two brothers were
placed on the scaffold. The men were
pale and appeared haggard and worn
from their long imprisonment nnd the
anxious suspense, but both were brae
and faced their fate with but very
little appearance of fear.
They were asked whfither they had
anything to say and acknowledged in
firm tones that the sentence was just
They admitted their guilt of the'
crime for which thoy were thus to suf--
,fer a just punishment. "
The men about to die then offered up
an ardent prayer, asking pardon from
their 'God for the-crime for which they'
were thus to pay the supreme penalty
of tho law. i
After this prayer they prepared to
die and at a signal the drop fell and
the bodies of the two brothers were
precipitated heavily to the length of
the rope.' . - ..
After some few -minutes the bodlee
were examined and at the expiration of
thirteen minutes Tom was pronounced,
dead, and after fifteen minutes life was
extinct in his brother William'.
Thus ended this famous murder cast--which
has probably caused more bitter
feeling and more argument and parti?
zanship than other crimes of a like tia
ture in the history of the territory.
