Owing to the fall in price of j copper Ihi entire industry has under, gone "a certain paralysis," but it is ex- I r:eeted that the energy and ability of the Americans who have established some of the largest plants in Peru will contribute to the highest prosperity of the copper industry. The introduction of Americai meth ods of exploitation and Atin-rlc-an ma chinery already has redue-ed the cc;st of pre due tion "to an in redibly Ion figure," and the building of new rail roads has enabled even the native min ers tp find a nerW and wid -r sphe re for the industry.

HE CAPTURES VOTES WHEREVER HE GOES Mr. Morrison's Successful Tour of Cochise County An Overflowing and Euthusia&tic Meeting at Tombstone Last Night. Great Work Done Among the Southern Towns. Tombstone, Ariz., Oc tober 27 (Spec ial) The triumphant tour of this county by Hon. Itobert E. Morrison, republi can candidate for delegate to e-ongress, is drawing tej a close. Mr. Morrison and his party arrived here today and were met at Fairbanks by a reception committee, among whom were Clerk of the Court C. I!. Wilcox and Mes dames William Lutley and C. P. Tar bell, the latter of whom entertaine Mrs. Morrison during her stay in the city. Tombstone entertained the can didate in a royal manner. There were bombs and a great bonfire. A monster mass meeting was held at SehieuTm hall tonight. It is the largest meeting place in Tombstone and it was entirely inadequate for the crowd which had gathered to hear Mr. Morrison and Colonel Zabriskie, who assisted him in the meeting-.' Captain Wilcox was the chairman. The speeches of Mr. Morrison and Colonel Zabriskie were received with great enthusiasm. The former spoke of the new Tombstone which will surpass the old one in its importane-e in the mining world. He also scored the Eis lee lieview for a partisan article which it published last Saturday. He spoke of the friendliness of : the republican pai ty to labor and pointed to the efforts cf Mr. E. P. Cage, who is tha known friend cf every laboring man in th' territory. His address wa.s interrupted by f refuent applause1. At the flose of the meeting there was a magnificent reception, and the party U-ft for Pearce at 11 o'clock tonight. Mr. Mejiisoti spe-nt Sunday at Naco and Douglas, where he had been before in the e-ourse of his tour cf the county. He was given an overllowing reception at both places. He will receive a heavy vote in this county especially in His lee. Tombstone and the border towns.

Schwartz and his associates claim to be descendants of the former numbers of the society and brought suit fcr the purpose of securing a dis tribution of the society's property, al leging that the organization had ceas'd to exist: that there were now only eight persons who pretend to be mem bers of the society, and that they are either old men or women, and that the management of the projierty, which amounts to an aggregate of about $4, I'OO.iiOO In value, is in the hands of Duss. the senior trustee, and that he is rapid ly wrec king the property.' The court decided that Schwartz and his associates have not such proprie tary interests in the pro.rty as would entitle them ujion the dissolution of the society to share in the assets.

GOLOMBII IN ATTITUDE Oil CANAL The Reply to the Government's Propo sition Not Quite Favorable An Indication That the Negotiation of the Treaty Will Be Delayed The First Payment of 7,000,000 Proposed Is Regarded as Too Small An Annual Rental of $600,000 Demanded Colombia Finds Also That There . Is no Constitutional way by Which the Territory May Be Ceded to theUnited States. Washington, Oc toln-r 27. The long ext ee ted i espouse of tho Colombian government to the proposition made by tiie state department for the negotia tion of the canal treaty on tha lines jf the Spoone r act has reached Washing ton and was presented to the state de partment toeiay by Herran .secretary of the Colombian legation. It is diflic-ult to learn, the exact nature of the com munication, hut it is known that it is not altcgether an uncjualified accept ance of the state department's propo sitions. However, it is of a friendly and litgnifie 1 tone anil does not close the negotiations by any means, though it unepaestionably sets back the elae c-f the final agrtemen by ope ning up l ew Voiles for argument. For one thing. Iht Co:ombian government is now en tir'ly dissatisfied with the small amount of the payment made it by the United Places under the terms of the licti-coi, ,'. hich- it i:; .proposed to u. e as a basis for the treaty. This sum is reven million dollars. Colombia wants at bast ten million dollars. More ovarl the original proposal lack ed to await for fourteen years before be ginror.g payment of the annual ie:: t il, an amount which was to be then iixtd by mutual agreement. Columbia e;ec!"d the late Patrick S.

Mr. Sor.su is. of eourse, the leading writer of popular music, and it U not strange that the audience last night insisted upon greeting him as an old friend. That h. appreciated the remarkable waimth of his reception was evident from th" fact that lie voluntarily ;ul e'.ed to the ahiady generous pro gramme, and this, with the encores r.iadv it necessary to continue the en 1. 1 1 linmer.t to an unusually late hour. The programme for roth matinee and night was happily arranged. There was a pleasing blending of classics and pop ular music, and with it all war- the de licicus "swing" which is peculiar ta a Sousa rendition even the Wagner re lections took on a Sousa character. Everything was so excellent that the? I e iowd found it difficult to show marks of favciitism. However, the solo trom bone playing of Mr. Arthur Pryor fair ly carried tha audience away. Mr. Pry or easily sustained his reputation as the world's greatest trombone soloist. The singing of MNS Estelle L:ebling. and the violin rec itations of Miss Grace Jenkins were eif the Fame high order as tne performance c.l the band and piaise c-Tuld not b - higher.
