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,

operate earnestly.

TAXPAYKRS' MEETING TONIGHT.
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. This commit
tee is to be chosen at a meeting of tax
payers which has been called to be held
at the Patton Grand opera house to

night. 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. His host of friends In Ari

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.

"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.

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. Leaving
'he plantation houses one can ride to
the Pacific, take a dip in the salt water
?nd return in half a day.
