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. The figures follow:

MORE ABOUT LUMBER
FOR PHOENIX TRADE
Mont Anderson Says the Prices Are
All Right Now and the House
Building Should Continue.
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.
