Following Id a comparative statement showing the ore production of Gila county for the years ending- December 31, 1906 and December 31, 1907, i.uiiiiiiru vy v.uumy issessur rv. r. in emu. The figures show an increase of 6,110,150 pounds of copper in 1907 over 1906, and a substantial increase in gold. Silver, however, shows a slight falling off. The figures for 1908 in all probability will be greater than any year past, in spite of the drop in price.

Mont Anderson of the Buckeye Linber Yard, better known in his advertising as the Independent com pany, has been heard from again. He noted an interview in an after noon paper that stated a number of facts but which, he said, had an ap parent motive that was quite amus ing to those who were informed about conditions. It inspired him to the writing of another address to the people, as follows: "That Phoenix Is now being favor ed with right prrces on lumber is undoubtedly true, but the trust yards are selling lumber at right prices, more because they were forced to do so by the Independent company, than by reason of "the panic" elsewhere. It is true that there has been a fall of $1 In the price of lumber on the coast, during the last six weeks and there was some previous decrease In prices, but there has been no such a lowering of wholesale rates in the last year as the decrease made in re tail rates in Phoenix since last fall. The panic which left big yards on the coast overstocked, may be respon sible for the cut in wholesale prices, but the Buckeye yard in Phoenix should be credited with the major part of the cut in retail prices. - The people eem to appreciate that fact as instanced by the growing patron age of the Buckeye company. "It would appear that the trust yards which have been driven to sell lumber at a right price, are seeking merely to save their faces by credit ing their reductions to a panic, rath er than to open an legitimate local competition. Be that as It may the people- have secured: the benefit and I am glad of It. Lumber prices in Phoenix are now lower than at any other point In the territory so far as I can learn and at prevailing prices there Is only a fair and legitimate profit in most lines. "It is quite possible that the Ideas recently given publicity are intended as an intimation of a possible "lum ber fight" to be inaugurated by the trust yards, but I hardly think so. Such a plan could only be disastrous to the city in the long run. The Buckeye yard has conducted a fight for right prices and has won it and would prefer to see lumber sold at right prices frorn now on, though should a wholesale cutting of prices be indulged in I have no doubt the Buckeye can keep up its end, but as mentioned above it would result' dis astrously not only to all the yards but to the people, except the very few who chanced to buy while the cut was at its deepest, and attention is now called to the fact that the people may note that if a fight follows It will be the trust yards that do the fighting. The Buckeye will try al ways ot meet competition at right prices or at any other when a sale is made, but In the event of an un warranted cut it will merely let the ether fellow fill the order at a loss. I have no hesitancy in announcing that my purpose Is not philanthropic. I am selling lumber to make some money but I only ask a legitimate profit. The outrageous prices for merly charged by the trust yards! was my opportunity and I seized it, sold lumber at a fair profit as I expect to continue to do, made friends and Incidentally made as much mon ey as I should reasonably expect to do on the capital invested. "It is the history of lumber fights, 'r similar contests 4n any line where a '- imbinatlon exists on one side that tii- purpose of them. Is usually to 'ripple a competitor -or destroy him, ! even at great expense to the trust, then with a clear field, under one pretext or another, raise prices to a point where the losses can be quickly recovered. Should that be under taken here the Buckeye yard has no notion of being destroyed, but It does not care to do business for fun any more than a trust yard does. ' and the more when the public will derive no lasting benefit The conditions of prosperity here now are all that could be desired arid with present prices at a fair profit only. Phoenix should en joy a continuous building boom for some years to come. "I am further moved to suspect the planning of a throat cutting cam paign in respect tof prices, by Inci dents that have occurred recently, though as I said before I hope , my suspicions are not to be borne out A well known local politician and al leged "trust buster" whom I Have heard denouncing the great corpora tions and business combinations, both in public and in private, and to whom I was sympathetically inclined by reason of his "theoretical" de fense of the people and his hostile at titude toward unlawful corporations affords a case in point He applied at the Buckeye yard for lumber quo tations which he secured admitting that the price was reasonable. Then he went to a trust yard and the proprietor agreed, upon certain con ditions, to ship the lumber to him at a prof't ot Iity cents per 1000 feet. a considerably lower price than we had offered, and the deal was closed. We don't care who sold the lumber, fifty cents a thousand is not enough profit for handling It Whether tie man belongs to a trust or is an in dependent dealer he would operate at a loss. "Then what Is the purpose? The history of the lumber business in this city In the past would not indicate that the "dealers are here lor their health. Is there a man in Maricopa county who believes that any lumber yard in Phoenix would sell lumber at t. A in i n V. . . r. . 1 ...... T . . . 1 L. .. naa sometning else in view? Could the purpose be to deceive the cus tomer, to throw out a bait, or a mod est form of bribery? Look at It from any viewpoint and the tendency would be to destroy competition. The lumber trust knows the power of its money and the poverty of its com petitor. "All we ask is a fair consideration of the matter by the consumers. Give the Buckeye Lumber company : a portion or your trade. Many strangers are coming to the town who are not familiar with the con- jditions either past or present We jask them to inquire Into the history of the Buckeye Lumber company for I the past ten years and they w ill find jus with the people always. "MONT ANDERSON, "Proprietor." BATH TUBS ARE SCARCE. American's traveling abroad are often puzzled on the subject of baths, says the June Delineator. We are so used at home to the luxury of a por celain tub, that we feel as if had fallen in among the heathen when after a dusty Journey we find that there is no bath in the pension. There are always public baths in European cities, frequented by people of refine ment The baths are kept immacu lately clean, and the prices charged are not high, say twenty-five cents for everything included soap, towel and tip- If you like a. bran 4 bath which is most refreshing, you-" can have a sack of bran to throw into the bath for about ten cents. There are often swimming pools In connec tion with these places, and the at tendants are usually very good chi ropodists and manicurists, as well as hair-dressers. You can order a bath brought to you If you like, and it might be amusing to do this once, for a novelty. These come dearer, na turally; but all these things are part of the varied experiences which make nn the Deculiar charm and novelty of a journey abroad. PROMPTLY ON TIME. James Black the strawberry king, and his estimable wife, are rejoicing In the arrival of a fine nine pound son at their home yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The young 'gentleman evi dently had heard of The Republican's opening at that hour and could not have chose a more auspicious one. the way this paper feels about It for the beginning of a long and useful life. The Republican Is eighteen years his senior and has found this to be a rocky old world, but there Is lots of good in It and more coming and it is hoped the strawberry prince will set his share.
