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.

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.
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

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.

Williams, Arizona.
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.
