Th- following interview appeared in the Pre-feott Herald last uight: ! j The r presentative of the Herald call- ' j c-d cn 3Ir. F. 31. Murphy thi.; morning I for ix lit tie chat, upon his return f.'oni ' ! the southr-rn :;art of the territory, and j . ;:? pleared to hear the good report i.e j cringe rgaronig new railroad con struction and development of the mi')- ' ing ir.du: try in central and southern i Arizona. ! Mr. Mi'rphy will remain w ith uo but 'H short t:;ni.' when he will mane anoth er hurried trip east to help get to- I get her th wherewithal to keep up the good work tha is going on in the line ' 'it the development of the vac t rs- I sources of the ten itory. He was asked if he- cared to fay any'hing about the political :iln." ioa I in the territory, so far sis the sek-' tioii ! of tleb'gats to the republican national I convention was cont vrned. He said he bad not given politico any atterA .-n 'on hi:- trip to the so ithern pait tf the iti-rritoiy but was not urmhidful of I th accusations that were being made ' nprair.Pt hiin. While not willing to take any r-ait m the selection of delegate to 'ie ler- litorial republican coin'viiuon, we can not help complaining ut the abuse that Is being leaned upon our fellow towns man. F. 31. Murphy, by some of the Ihoeniv papers, particularly the Ga zette, whivli js supposed to be a re publican paper and the l ecogi:i:'e' or gan' of 'the territorial administ vti ip'. Everyone in the territory knows v. hat F. M. Murphy lias done and i. doing for the upbe-ilcling of Ariz ma.

B ishford, who. j in his judgment, is entitled to the im J divided so port of the party in thi county The claim that is being made thr-t the latier is unfriendly to Bresi- dent Boose vedt because he believes i.i an i:r.inst rucled delegal ion, is wholly j 'in-.varranted. 3Ir. Bushford i ;m- j doubted'y as warm a frie-nr! of presl-j dent Roosevelt as any of his self-con- . stituted representatives, as tim; will I undoubtedly demonstrate. He do j ne t, however, believe in plac'ng' the J republicans of the territory in the po sition of being without roindr, of th-?'r j by any one man, or set of men whose object, it is fair to assume, is largely that fif re in fore -In -r tbe n cl va nta rreous f.editiial jiosiiiems tin y happen to '.; i rjoying for the time being. ' I Mr. Murphy fee!.- that the attacks' th :t have been nw.de upon him through j the Piiejenix papers, particularly the Gazette, has bee-n impireel larg ly by I thoise mo-t active in s-ec tiring an in-1 structed delegation. He does not think , the president would approve of th tac- j ties th1 t are b ing einj loye.l ar.d be-! lieves that his friejids ami th .- frirr.U t of 3!r. Bahford w ill take oce-aMon to ' show tilt? interested parties that flit- J fercnt methods wevild havr? been pro diuHive of bert'-r tesults for th -ir can- t iMdate.

The following is an extract, that ap peared in tho Gazette of the 16th: In answer to The Republican's anx ious inquiry, "Who has done more for the territory than F. M. Murphy?" we will cisk in return: Did 3fr. Murphy ever invest v. dollar In 'Arizona that he did net receive two in return? Has not Arizona done as much for Mr. Murphy ns Mr. 3Iurphy has done for Arizova? We mi.xht point to. the record of Sena tor W. A. Oh-rk, who 4 has developed one of the ri.-hest mines In . the world, ami who employs hundreds of men. But Mr. Clark, like some otlur people, spends the profits in places other than Ari.-'ona. If The Republican, had asked U3, "Who has done more TO Arizona than F. 3T. Murphy?" we should' hove been n.t a . loss for an answer, unlers we should ciy Brother Oakcs. President Vickers, et si, for Hue ugh The Kepub l'onn, as stated i'bove., thefts g?ntlemen have succeeded in doing coniIderab e to the territory. Certainly, tr-mebcHtv n-.nst have lost then "head, and if it is true that the Gazette a terrltnrhtl trgan. some cne had better call it off. The Herald doe?-, r.ot believe that thi T3 is any number of citiren'' in the territory wiio hoid th unfriend!, feed ing toward Mr. Murphy that tae Gj. zelte is trying to establish. I, r. ig' t be expected that ilemoc -atic papers would jump on to Mr. T.Iuiphy if eppor turdty offered, or. if you ploas-e, manu facture opportunities, es he has a.i wavs fou-rht that party vigorously, bu: from all v. e can learn. fa::ly.

A great deil or interest Is being i manifested in the matinee to be p,iveu by tile Phoenix Diiving tlub at the Phoenix trak on February 22nd. It wi'l be the finest meeting to be held under the auspices of this r.e.v riigani zaticn rf hors;men and it wi'.i bi a Viry Ir.trresting one. A thing thr.t Fhould be noted by all readers in that the meeting will be an- i solutely free to all, there being no charge either at the git- or lr s.ats in th" grand stand. The misri n of the riub is to encourage Interest in good horse s rath-r than to make money rnd It is desirous tu have the co-op-, ration of the public. That is the reason it is called a. driving as sociation rather than a rating club, even though it docs rac? horse?. For this initial meeting a delightful programme h;:s been arrange.l and the ilissts are all well fill d. There will! be r.o pu:es rffr-red. In view cf the long programme provide 1. in o:d?r to pet through the rach-.g will have t"j begin promptly at 1:30 o'clock and the nftei noon's pport will be w .-11 worth the time cf anyone who can arrange to be present.

One is iiow aide to get ins ired against most any possible dang-or. (In ; oT the mo.n unusual risks ever assum- e-d by an insi-tanee company.!.; thn. i:i I. eh: If of Mme. Adeii'ia pati, where: by the noled : iugf H insured against 1' iii'iaiy lo-Tses if she "ioscs her ice during her present "fareweli" toar of the United Slate:. Under the e-onilil ioi.s of the policy she is to get $7i.0(!it if -I'o can not sing at any one of thr concerts. Another policy guarantees the diva iO,0C0 on the whole tour in the event of permanent and totsl loss of voice. In addition, the singer's manager h;n a. third policy, insuring the health of lime. Patti during the various engage ments of her American contract. Tlv; latter policy is for the personal remun eration ;f the manager should t'.ie prima donr.-.'s health break down and prevent h--r from fdbng her profes sion;;! engagements. The "voice" pol ieie are her own investment and she personally paid" the premiums. All three i 'ska were coder written j by Lloyd's, in England, and v.nlike many theatrical ventures, there has been considerable endeavor on the part of those interested to keep the: polic ies a secret. For th's reason some of the detail. are difficult to obtain. It is known, however, that the corporation that as sumed both "voice" liabilities subjected the singer to a moat exhaustive tifroat examination, and that a celebrated German f-pee ialist was called into the conference. The throat of Mine. Pattl was reported to be in the best of con dition, but the underwriters hesitated for some weeks V.e.. of the tb.--lors as to :-. ip" oubts Ihe rigors of j,i American winter. It was made manda tory on the part of the singer that 'in the event of her being unable to sir.g she was to cable her address immed iately that the insurance might have the privilege of communication by wire for purposes of corroboration, with any physician it saw fit in any Canadian or American city that she happened to be in at the time. She is also to furni3li it her own expense affidavits ' from three leading doctors ns to the condi tion of her tin eat. This is the first known Instance in which a singer has insured herself against possible mone tary loss through her Inability to sin-.; because of voice failure. The representative of a successful firm of underwriters said yesterday that within the last few months hun--dreds of policies have been Issueel against illness or death from appendi citis. The fact that the treatment fo;--appendicitis can rarely be successful ly accomplished txcept at enormous expense Is said to be the chief reason for the desire of many to insure against partial pecuniary loss from the disease. London is at present upset by an epidemic of measles and scarlet feve and the insurance companies have be gun to take risks to ward off loss from victims of these diseases. Lust wee'; five lords and twelve prosperous bank ers availed themselves cf the chance of insuring iimler these special claus es.' Englirh underwriters have for sev eral years wtitlen n t:ny odd risks, but insuring against disease is new and has caught the town. "Take out a pol- j icy for measles." or "Are you insured ; against scarlet fever?" are common j cprr-: ions in htranu and music balls. Ti e custom of taking cut a nolicv 0.1 the life of some great public man. ' Much on the. order of buying ?, lottery ti; ket in Havana or a chane e or. a l -e, horse at New Orleans, has been a long bono: eel one in Ike English capital. Just, where the limit tor odd insurance comes i.-t a vexed e-uestion. Hund reds of thousand of po liitls are paid each year in English co.np inies to speculators gambling on the lives even of Indian princes of whom :e intend- j td beneficiaries know almost nothing1 and the Inurane-e companies iitil?! more. Another, 'feature of several companies is tin insurance against habitual dmnkenness whereby a man may be insured ajahut the potential t!riiing of hia wife, or vie-e versa., 1 Still another odd form of insurrioe is a divorce clause whereby the in- I jured party may heve his or her worm- j clod fee-ling repaired by the payment of pound", shilling or pence. This pe- ! cvlir fom of imuranee has not yet i be-on Intioduce-d into Frame, althoug.i one or two Parisian companies will as sume risks on the tjuestion of lo.;. through continued intoxication. . cow-mow 11 insuranc e l.rin lias tae , following special clause provided ioi i partial indemnity fi on appendicitis: I "In the event of the astured under- j going an operation for appendicitis, thi- company is to pay all expenses j incurred directly in connection there- i v.r.n (not exceeding the sum of J in all), but in the event of the opera tion being performed and death en suing as ;. c'irect result of the same within thirty days thereafter a total loss of the sum of $ to be paid hereunder. "It is a condition of .his nolicy that the assured, at the inception of thi. insurance, to the t-est of his or her knowledge and belief shall not be suf fering from and shal! not have any special reason to consider that he (she) is liable to, appendiciti.:. For a recovery of a claim hereund?r it is necessary that the assur-ed should ascertain that he (she) is suffering from uppeepritis during the term of the policy, jind that the operation should take plaiv not later than the expira tion of. ore month from the termina tion o this poiicy." Fidelity and casualty insurance ha-; been most progressive with the past live years .and there are many com panies in New York that make a bus iness of insuring against loss by bur glars, elevator mishaps, robbery by F.ervants, accidents of every degre" anrl kind whether self-contributory or otherwise, loss through delay in steamer and train transit, fraud through clerks and other employes uii'i loss through leeal actions. All the big express companies dry good stores coal firms and trucking houses, pay a certain sum every year as a protection against damage suits by- drivers and helpers v ho are hurt while in their employ. The insurance companies contest the suits or effect compromises. One larce company down town man ageel by a once slpning light in Tam nvany, makes a specialty of insuring saloon proprietors against pecuniary dnrrage through arrest for violation of the excise laws. This company fur nishes lawyers who appear in ' the courts to eiuestion and perplex wit- ntsses, b other w ise ae cused. Several i's out the bartenders and protects the interests of tlu companies insure druggists against blae kmailera or even legiti niate victims of careless clerks. 3Iis t.ikes are often made in compounding of drugs and suits are the result. About a year ago a gang of sharper. set to work to blackmail New York druggists by claiming that their healtn and lives were endangered or impaired through clerical inaccuracy invfilling prescriptions. The blackmailer work ed on Hie safe theory that the average reputable druggist feared the publicity of such a charge, and a number of chemists settled with the blackmailers without much eiuestion, though real izing that it was blackmail. . At last the claims became so numerous an 1 outrageous that the druggists were ob liged to seek the insurance companies as a protection. This broke up, the. Gang. The income of some of the fidelity and casualty companies through fur nishing bonds to employes is enor mous. Collectors for milk stores, gas companies, ice companies, butchers, bakers and tradesmen are now com pelled to furnish bonds, and the gov ernment and municipal employes are obliged to de likewise. When an em ploye absconels, leaving the employer to fall back upon the company for damages, the latter never lets up until it lays hands upon the dishonest man. Like the gover nment, it will follow him for years around the world until he is captured. Every form of insurance imaginable even recompense for damage for per sonal injuries because of an attack by a mother-in-law, may be obtained. It is merely a eiuestion of looking for an up-to-date company and paying the premium exacted. New Yoik Mail and Express, AN ADVENTURE IN AFRICA.
