7 Territorial News Items Of General Interest Cleaned From Our Exchanges Sued for Libel. Kean St. Charles has euetl the Arizona Republican for libel, in the district court of Yavapai county, alleging damages in the sum of 50,000. J. F. Wilson and J. J. Hawkins are attorneys for plaint iff and E. E. Ellin wood is the at torney for the defendant Republi can. The suit is the outgrowth of a telegram sent to that paper from Kingman alleging that St. Charles, in his paper, had gloried in the death of President McKinley, and charging him with being an an archist. The Republican editorial ly charged St. Charles, while a member of the legislature last win ter, of being a brile taker, a rant ing, loud-mouthed demagogue, and various other unbecoming accomp lishments. The suit will be ably defended and the chances of obtain ing a judgment in the case are small. A newspaper man who has not been overly careful in his at tacks on others ought to be able to take a little of his own medicine. Mohave Miner The Preliminary Examination. The preliminary examination of A. L. Simms took place before Jus tice Quihlan last Saturday morn ing. Simms was represented by E. E. Ellin wood and Thomas A. Flynn and District Attorney Jones and E.

The decision of the court was that Simms should be held to appear before the grand jury on a charge of manslaughter. Bail was fixed in the sum of $5,000, in default of which he was remand ed to jaiL Sun. Things are Lively at the Last Chance. Ralph II. Cameron left last week for the Last Chance mine in the Grand Canyon. He took out with him a lot of pack saddles, blankets and kyaks. The kyaks are raw hide affairs, about the shape of a kerosene case, and will hold about 125 pounds of ore, and a burro carries two loaded kyaks from the mine to the rim. J. C. Blake, the saddler, has received three more rush orders for further supplies since sending the above order out. Sun. Disappearance of a Miner. A great deal of anxiety is being felt at Signal about the where abouts of Frank Williams, a well known miner of that section, who disapeared from the Rawhide mine, on the Santa Maria, last July. Mr. Williams had leased the Rawhide and made preparations for extensive work. Some time in July he started out with two burros in the direction of Congress, and he has never been seen or heard of since. Besides a valuable wagon, he left several months' provisions at the mine, which would show that he intended to return. An investigation will be made as it is now thought that he must have perished on the desert or been foully dealt with. Kingman Ar row.

The impression is current that there will be installed a mammoth power plant somewhere in the Grand Canyon of the Colorado river for the purpose of generating power for mining and other pur poses. The plant will be installed this winter, and before the big rise in the river next spring will be ready to supply power to operate every piece of machinery in this country. Mohave Miner. "Who would not gamble for a star?" were the words of Captain Buckey O'Neill just before he went to meet death in Cuba at the head of his Rough Rider troop. He gambled his life, and Arizonans will see to it that the star which he gave up his life for will find its place on the flag. Tucson Post. .

It is announced from Chicago that the Santa Fe has completed the deal for the control of the Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix road, which has long been rumored. The Santa Fe has purchased the capital stock, large blocks of second mort gage bonds, and the control of the Phoenix road is now said to be vested in the Santa Fe. The Santa Fe, Prescott fe Phoenix is 225 miles long. It has twelve locomotives and over 100 cars. It extends from Ash Fork, Ariz., on the main line, through Prescott to Phoenix. The south end of the S. F., P. & P. is near the end of the Gila valley, which has recently been explored by Santa Fe officials and engineers with a view to building through it to a Pacific seaport in southern California. Such a line would ex tend through an immensely rich and undeveloped country. The purchase of the S. F., P. & P. by the Santa Fe strengthens the belief that some such move is on foot. The Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix is through the midst of rich min ing lands, and taps the Salt river valley, which is a fertile agricultural region. Journal-Democrat.
