Nicaragua canal an l fur gold standard legislation by this congress." Judge Karham was a member of the committee on interstate commerce in the last congress, and naturally will be glad to have the same assignment for the next two years. "I had some doubts till last winter whether San Francisco would be benefited by the canal," he said. "Prof. Haupt was before our committee, and I asked him whether traffic through the canal would not pass southward. Ke answer ed me in the negative, quite to my sur prise. I repeated the question to mai;e sure, and he informed me that it would be 890 miles nearer to Hawaii and the Philippines by San Francisco than to pass farther south, on account of the curvature of the earth, lie said that this was easily demonstrated by fig ures.'' Mrs. Joy, wife of the St. Louis con gressman, feels a deep interest in the case of Mr. Roberts. In the hope of preventing Jlr. Roberts from being sworn in, or of expelling him. if nec essary, Mrs. Joy has prepared peti tions for the signature of the wives of the representatives, regardless of party, and has sent them by mail to their addresses. M". Joy has done this entirely upon her own motion. She said yesterday that she believed this would be the most efficacious way in which to influence the members of the house. She stated that she would ex ert her lnlluence with her own h'jsbani to vote against Roberts, and that she feels confident that the majority, if not all, the ladies addressed will fe.-l snub, deep interest in the matter as to co operate earnestly.

This is the night when an important step will be taken in the direction of a public water works system. A com mittee is to he appointed to make an estimate on the cost of a plant, and on receipt of this estimate a majority of the members of the council have pledged themselves to submit a bond proposition to the residents of Phoenix qualified to vote upon it.

It is important that all the taxpayers be on hand to assist in ths selection of the committee, for it is possible that one might be made up in such a manner as to defeat the object of both the majority in the council and the purpose for which the meeting has been called. It Is learned that the small, but very active minority op posed to a public water works system has been very busy organizing for the last three or four days, with the object of securing control of the meeting with" the object ef selecting a committee whose report would stagger the council and the people. A minority working together has been known to do great things against a large, well meaning, but unorganized majority. If the tax payers have an opportunity to express themselves a committee will be made up of fair and competent men. FI'XEHAL OF W. W. HILL. The funeral of Mr. Y. V. Hill was held yes terday aftemoo nat the Presbyterian church and was attended by a large number of mourning friends. Mr. Hill, who was well known throughout the mining sections of the territory, was a patient sufferer for several years from mineral poison, contracted during his life in the mining camps of the terri tory. He was employed for several years at the United Verde mine and has many friends in Jerome who will miss his kindly face. He was also at one time a resident of Globe, and a son, Mr. Kdgar Hill, now resides there. He was summoned a few days ago to the bedside ef his dying father. Com menting on the sad event, the Silver I3elt says: "Mr. Hill was one of the finest machinists in Arizona. He worked for years in the lumber camps of Belmont and was master mechanic in Jerome for a long time and was uni versally beloved by all who had the good fortune ,to procure employment under him.

A COMMITTEE WILL BE CHOSEN TO ESTIMATE THE COST OF WATER WORKS AND SEWERAGE SYSTEMS. TWO MURDER CASES Statements or Proceeding Tiled With- I he Governor. There were received at the office it the governor yesterday as the law di rects in the cases of persons convict ?d of capital crimes, statements of the proceedings resulting in the conviction and sentencing to death of George Smiley in Navajo county, and Eugenio Mata in Apache county. The latter is to be hanged on December 1, and the former on December S. Mata" has pe titioned the governor for a commuta tion of his sentence to imprisonment for life. The petition is unsupported by other subscribers than Mata and is as fol lows:. "Mr. Murphy Dear Sir I sat down to write you this letter. I pray you to short my sentence to lif prison. I b?g to your Majesty to save me. I am in nocent of the crime of which I was acused. I know my heart is clean. I am guilty of no crime becausa thit was accidently. I never thought of such like that. I can swear before god in last moment of my life that I am in nocent. I ask you be so kind short my sentence. You have all the power. Save my life if you please. I am alone in his. I am a poor hoy and far away from home wfiere nobody know me. I beg to have pity on me and save mi from death. I hope you answer my letter as soon as possible. "You "Respeetfuliy, "El'GENIO MATA." The "accident'' to which the peti tioner alludes is the pointing of a gun, which he supposed was empty, at a little girl. It went off the charge passing-through her throat and neck. The tragedy occurr?d at Springerviii2 last summer. The victim was a thirteen-year-old girl. Bertha Wall, for whose parents Baca, a boy of nineteen, hud been working alp.ipst a year. His theory of an accident is partially sup ported by one statement by all the witnesses for the territory, that after pointing the weapon at the girl the first time, he turned it aside and ejected a cartridge, after which he aimed again and the gun went off. The motive for the crime charged docs not appear to be shown in the statement. If it should turn out that Mata should be hanged this will be the first in stance on record of the fool with the empty gun having been brought to justice. The case of Smiley is out of the or dinary. The defendant had pleaded guilty to an indictment for the murder of Peter McSweeney, a Santa Fe sec tion foreman, for whom he had worked. McSweeney had been succeeded by another foreman leaving Smiley en titled to eight days' time. The new foreman could not give him the time because it had not been served under him. The old one could not, because he was without authority. Smiley says that seeing there was no other source of satisfaction he determined to kill McSweeney. They met and when Mc Sweeney turned to run Smiley shot him. Smiley says he had no intention of shooting until McSweeney, after running a short distance, turned ami put his hand behind him as if to draw a gun. This statement was made after the plea of guilty was entered. Other wit nesses were called and testified that the murder was brutal and unpro voked. Judgment was pronunc?c against him and the death sentence was imposed. Many courts have refused to ac cept pleas of guilty from persons ac cused of capital crimes, on the theory that a man cannot waive his constitu tional right of trial by jury, whin to much is r.t stake. No movement for a commutation of sentenca or any other relief in behalf of Smiley has been made. $2.. REWARD for watch taken from bath room of Shirley's barber shop Saturday.

A LAND Of WEALTH Per u.ies Vail nq fur the QuUI.cn i g T uch of Capital Mr. M. E. Emerick of Chicago arrived n the city en Tuesday and is stopping jat the Ford hotel. His visit to Phoenix I will be brief, as he is en route from the I state of Michoacan, Mexico, and will I. leave for his eastern home in a day or two. Mr. Emerick has traveled in nearly every state in the Mexican republic during the last two years and a half and talks very interestingly of its re sources, its possibilities and its cus toms. He ' was sent out by Chicago capital to look up a profitable field of investment in the line of plantation property and after a thorough study of the resources of the country found w hat he believes to be the garden spot of the world, in the state above named. Purchase was made of 250,000 acres of land on the coast, almost due west of the City of Mexico, and a corporation was formed under the name of "Cran pania Hacienda Coahuayula," with a capital stock of $5,000,000. The hacienda embraces lowland, 'up land, woodland, nlain and mountain. land its resources are varied and almost beyond estimate. The company has now been in possession about one year and while the time has been too short to calculate results. Mr. Emerick says that thus far their accomplishments have been most gratifying and fortune certainly awaits their continued efforts. Some parts of the hacienda were cul tivated previous to their ownership and these, with other areas, were planted to coffee trees. There are now 100.000 of them on the plantation and during the months of September and October 90,000 pounds of coffee werj harvested. Among other products cultivated are sugar cane, which is grown success fully and the company confidently ex pects to make 500,000 pounds of sugar next June. Cocoa is also enumerated and there are orchards or forests or whatever they may rightly be called, of cocoanut, vanilla and rubber trees. ! the latter growing prolifically, even though it is thousands of miles from I the river Amazon, the great rubber j producing country. In the mountain 'districts of the hacienda, too dry and ! rocky for cultivation, stock raising is carried on successfully. There is an abundance cf water in the lowlands and on the company's property are three lagoons, two rivers' and twelve small streams, beside many springs. Another notable resource is the nat ural woods in that section. There are many acres of mahogany, black wal nut, red cedar and two other valuable trees peculiar to that country, namely Primavera and Linaloa. There are also many valuable small er trees not yet extensively known commerce. All these beside being of utility in the conduct of the plantation, will some day prove valuable as an ex port, i As for the natural fruits of the country, they are many. The cattle thrive on native nuts or fruits and their are many from the delicious banana to others half as large as a watermelon that are a source of provision to the natives, even though they have never been turned into the export trade of the state. Speaking of bananas, Mr. Em erick said there were many varieties and the best of them grow there pro lifically. Fortune awaits the capitalist who will enter into the business of sending them north to California points, as they can more than compete with the east coast product, both Jn price and quality. Oranges are grown to some extent, but they are mostly sour and not a desirable article. Lem ons are unknown, but a good variety of lime is easily raised. One would think that nature had been lavish when the foregoing is duly considered, but there are yet other resources. The mineral wealth of the country is a factor that should not be overlooked. There are notable outcroppings of cop per, but the leads are undeveloped. One nice looking vein crops out on the company's property, but as yet it has not been prospected. A Pittsburg com pany has invested heavily in some gold claims not far distant and thus far they are most promising, while quite notable placer fields are being worked by the natives. Mr. Emerick expects i nthe near future to hear of some big mines being opened up. American capital is rapidly finding its way in. though as yet the virgin wealth of the state, which he believes is one of the richest In the republic, in natural resources, is practically un touched. An American with $3,000 or $10,000, who has push and energy and who will go to that' country firmly re solved to use business judgment,- leav ing his bad habits behind him can in five years, he says, realize ten-told on his investment. As for the native la boring classes, the wages paid on the Hacienda Coahuayula are 25 cents per day and rations, or 21 cents without rations, in Mexican silver money. The district, as noted above, runs from the coast inland, and is about three (lays' journey overland from Co- li i. the capital of the state. though the usual method of reaching this re p on is down the coast. Thoirgh there i; r.o established port at that place, t.iere is a little harbor suitable for all purposes within a few miles.
