T. C. Donahuo is tho owner of
an egg that must havo beon laid by
a brooding hen with something on

as light as a Now York alderman's

is what attracts tho attention.
Lay it upon a smooth surf'aco and
it will immediately flop over on its

A youthful and hcrioc act was
observed by a couple of peoplo
yesterday near tho corner of third
and Madison streets. A littlo girl
of about thrco years of ago was
standing in tho middloofthe strcot
watching somo other children at
play, whon a runaway team dashed
around the corner of Madison streot
and mado direct for tho child. A
boy of about six years of ago was
standing not far from the little girl
and observed at a glanco tho child's
danger. Ho hesitated not a minute
but jumped in front of tho littlo
girl, yelling and swinging his arms.
The team swavcred and passed by
not over a foot from tho child and
her young horo. If anybody

in ono so young tho act was most

Tho danger which threatens our
republic today is tho tendency to
ccnteralization of all govermental
power in Washington, tho tendency
to conterahzation of the wealth of
tho nation in tho hands of a few
families, tho ccnteralization and
control of all business in tho hands
of a few rich corporations and combines,
tho centralization of population
in largo cities where human
boings prey upon ono another like
wolves. Centralization then is
tho ono dread and great ovil principle
which fathors a hordo of lessor
ovils. Our populist friends,
however, clamor for moro centralization
of govermental powors at
Washington and want that city to
bo tho hub of railroad and tele
graphic ownership, as well as tho
center of government. Should
such conditions obtain, tho ompire
will bo at hand in fact, if not m

ESTABLISHED 1895 ll
Is the Arizona Copper Company at
JAS. C0LQUH0UN HAS STEERED
THE FINANCIAL BARK.
Ono of the Big Copper Froduclng Mines
that Now lays Dividends.
President Colquhoun of tho Ari
zona Copper company, and Secretary
Miller of the Scotch office of
the same company, were in the city
Wednesday, says Lordsburg Liberal,
en route to Bisbeo and Verde,
to more thoroughly investigate the
bossemer converters, by which the
matte is converted into bullion.
Tho Arizona Copper company has
been operating at Clifton since
1882, and last month it declared
tho first dividend in tho history of
tho company. This was such a
surprise to tho stock holders that
shares which a few months ago
wero scarcely worth a dollar each
now sell for 816 in tho Edenburg
market. The company is now ablo
to work a much lowor grade than
over before, in fact is handling at
a profit a 3 per cent ore. This enables
it to work tho ore that formerly
went into tho waste dumps
and is now working many of tho
old dumps. Its product has increased
from five and one-half million
to eleven million pounds a
All of this has been accomplished
under tho management of Mr.
Colquhoun, and the company can
mark it down as a red letter day
when ho was placed in charge.
Previous to that timo tho affairs of
tho company at Clifton had been
managed in a hap-hazard and extravagant
manner. Mr. Colquhoun
then haoTcrlaTgcof tho smelters,
and it is presumedTioticed tho mistakes
that wero mado. "Whcrrhe"
was placed in chargo these problems
confronted him: How to reduce
tho expenses of the company,
tho cost of producing copper and
incrcaso tho output. That he was
successful may bo seen when it is
known that he has paid off all the
floating debts of the company, paid
back interests on bonds, paid the
first dividend on tho shares and
put its credit in first class shape.
Tho company now has larger bodies
of ore blocked out than over before
in its history, and with its ability
to work low grado ores, which will
bo further improved, it is safe to
say that tho company has many
years of prosperity unrolling before

Last Monday morning in th

of a serious accident. Charley
Combs, of Central, who is employed
by tho Cluff Bros, at tho lumber
mill, at Camp Columbine, narrowly-escaped
being killed. Ho and
John Cluff were engaged in cutting-down
a treo and sawing it into logs,
to bo taken to tho mill and was.
just in the act of separating a large
log from tho stump when it
that it was dangerous to be
in front of it. Combs was advised
to step back, so if tho log:
rolled ho would bo out of danger,
but thinking ho was safe ho continued
work. After a few moments
work tho log broke loose from tho
stump, and instead of jumping:
aside, young Combs started run
ning down tho hill, closely followed
by the log, which overtook hinu
It struck, him on the heels,
threw him on his face and passed
over him full length, nearly crushing
tho life out of him. Thoso who-witnessed
tho accident declare it-was
miraculous how the boy lived
after that heavy weight passed
over him. Ho was unconscious for-four
hours, and looked as if every
moment ho would breath his last.
Ho rallied however, and was taken,
