News and Gossip of Movements in
and Around Tucson.
The democrats of Pima county are
stirring up the political potpourri and
the heads of a number of candidates
have appeared above the soup. There
Is Johnny Hushes, the young county
superintendent of schools, who recently
met a band of train robbers and talked
with them. The meeting, it now tran
spires, was but the beginning of a boom
.lor legislative honors which Hughes
decided to thrust upon himself.
AVhether he secured the support of the
men he met is not known. At any rate
it is said that the young man wants
to go to the council. The Star editori
ally a few days ago said that any man
who seeks public office should be made
to stand up and tell the people what he
has done. John can nveet this require
ment without a stagger in his legs, for
he met the train robbers when every
one else in the country shook with fear,
laughs the Tucson Citizen.
Then there are other young men who
aspire to public office. There is Will
Angus, a good natured fellow, who has
done a great deal, even though he never
met outlaws amid this environment of
cat-claws and jackrabblts. Will is
said to be an aspirant for the iMsition
of superintendent of schools. Another
young man Is Mr. Pemberton, who
wants to go to the assembly. What he
has done will probably be given to the
public later. Judge Purcel! can have
the renoinination for probate judge if
he wants it, as he stands well with his
party, and Harry Drachman will no
doubt be renominated.
Sa'maniego wants the nomination for
sheriff by the democrats. He is the
only candidate that has appeared thus
far. Sheriff Wakefield will no doubt
be renominated .
The republicans art- not talking as
much as the democrats, A. V. Orosetta
has been mentioned for legislative hon
ors and Koseoe Dale may be prevailed
upon to take the nomination for judge
of probate. W. F. Cooper has made the
best record as district attorney of any
of his predecessors, and his renomina
tion and election is conceded by demo
crats. o

plants may b established in the west

be cheapened in the next few years.

on each car. To this cost of ice is
added the cost of labor for filling the

hasten the cooling. In this manner the

Are in Vogue.
Probably n.t one person in a thou
sand who purchase ripe frurt from the
Pacific coast has any idea of the care
which must be taken to get the fruit to
the east In a saleable shape.
For transporting fruit irt summer the
ordinary car has an ice chest at ach
end. holding live tons of ice Between
the Pacific coast and Chicago a car is
"iced" eight or ten times, according to
the weather. For this purpose ice de
pots are -established twenty-four to
forty-eight hours apart. At each of
these stations an average of 4,000
pounds of ce are taken into the cars.
Foe fruits the range of temperature
is from 40 to 50 degrees. Oranges and
l;mons demand least cold; apples,
peaches, and like soft fruits require the
greatest coolness.
All this fruit is loaded into the cars
with the heat of the field still in it.
This heat must be expelled in the first

Edwin JIaycS and Frank Guerra, for
themselves and others, have secured a
bond on four mining claims near
Quartzsite. belonging to John W.
Brown. The figure to be paid for the
four is above $20,000. Development work
will be begun on th;m about the mid
dle of September. These claims, three
of which are on the famous Mariquite
ledge and the other adjoins, have been
developed during the. past three years
by several shafts, the deepest of which
is S5 feet. The vein is about six feet in
width, and the ore, which assays, on an
average, about $11 per ton, carries a
very fine gold. A recent mill run of
twelve tons gave returns of $8.50 per
ton. Cyanide will probably be used In
the treatment of the ore, as the gold is
so fine that if it is attempted to save
the values by amalgamation the use of
a proper amount of water washes a
large amount of gold oft the plates,
whereas if less water is used the
crushed ore slimes badly."

Four 'Women Prisoners Escape but

escape in a break for liberty by
clambering over the jail yard wall, says

however, and their capture followed
before th escapes were more than two

Manufacturing Enterprise That May

L. L. PLANK, The Hatter
Successor to B. H. GREENE.
1 06 -108 W. Washington St.
Mr. George Mitchell, well known in
this territory from his connection with
various mining enterprises, was in the
city yesterday on business. He is just
now devoting the greater part of his
attention to a matter that bids fair to
bring him both wealth and fame and
incidentially perhaps launch a manu
facturing enterprise in this city.
Mr. Mitchell is the inventor of the
Mitchell Economic Copper Matting
Furnace, which was first successfully
placed in oieration at the I'nited Verde
copper mine and which, during the past
year, he has brought to a high degree
of perfection, having made a number of
valuable Improvements. .Patents are
pending and are so far advanced that
the inventor is fully protected so he
is devoting his energy to the introduc
tion of his machinery in the big copper
plants of the world.
The principle feature of the Mitchell
furnace is the utilizing of the waste
heat of the gases to heat the blast in
the handling of sulphides. The ad
vantage is the very small consumpti.ii'
of carbonaceous fuels as compared with
other furnaces, and the saving in the
loss of handling sulphide ores by the
ordinary roasting method by lessening,
the process the ores pass through. He
does away with the roasting process b-
utilizing the sulphur in the sulphide
ores as fuel. Mr. Mitchell guarantees
that by his process from 35 to SO per
cent can be saved on carbonaceous fuel.j
The cost of these furnaces is very little
higher than that of the ordinary fur-j

a number of valuable improvements
have been made since they were erect-j
ed. The Copper Queen is putting In a
big furnace at an enormous cost and
if it proves satisfactory, of which the
Inventor has no doubt, it is likely others
will be installed.
The Copeta Mining company, of
which William Melczer of this city is
at the head, is also putting in a Mit-j

satisfactory, and the future is filled
with hope and promise. Every encour
agement should be given those courag
ous men who risk their means in de
veloping the hidden mineral riches of
the country. Cpon the success of their
ventures depends the success of the cn
tire territory of Arizona. If they de
velop mineral wealth, operation of their
mines gives steady employment to la
bor, makes a market for the produce of
the valley farms, gives freighters op

these. The w.ore people employed in

The furnaces are now being built by

Mr. Mitchell yesterday, was introduced
a matter that should interest Phoenix
business men. Mr. Mitchell said:;

He was asked If he had any proposi
