J, W, DORRINGTON, Proprietor. YUMA, - - - 'AKIZOXA WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1902. KEEP YOUR EYE ON YUMA. Imports of iron ore into the United States for the month of January were 63,521 tons, against 33,357 tons in January, 1901. showing an increase of 30,168 tons this year. Peru holds the record as a mi ling country. She has 2,500 mines, from which 70,000 Work men dig gold, silver, sulphur, coal, phosphates, quicksilver, borax, copper and lead. The sinking of the liner Waes land last week and the miracu lous rescue of all its passengers by the ship with which it was in collision supplies a fine example of coolness and heroism. By his action in signing the permanent census bill, after get ting a legal opinion as to the rights of the civil service cause, President Roosevelt has refuted- the arguments that he is no tactician. , America sells nearly three times as much as she buys: Ger many buys 250,000,000 worth more every year than she sells, wtnie u-reat .Britain last year actually bought twice as much as she sold. Since Gov. Hogg of Texas has refused to appear at the king's levee in knee breeches the ques tlon has arisen wlietner ne was prompted in his decision by democratic simriicitv or un- symmetrical calves. The total resources of the New York savings banks Jan. 1 1902, were 1,131,564,624, an in crease for the year of 65,500,- 408. Deposits were 286,155,826, an increase of 17,832,313 com pared with Jan. 1, 1901. Chicago has the record num ber of trains arriving and de parting in one day, with 1,100 This supremacy will be over thrown when the Pennsylvania and Long Island railway term inals are finished at New York The Mininir and Scientific Press of San Francisco has re cently made a notable improve ment in its make-up which will be greatly appreciated by its many readers. It is the best mining journal in the western country. . Here in the United States 100 years is regarded as very ex treme old age. A London cable gram notes the deatlvin Albania of Ismail Hudjo, whose age is given as 160 years. He retained all of his faculties and left 200 descendants. The immigration record for one day was broken at New York Monday, when five steam ships arrived, bringing 6,865 foreigners. This addition to our population would make what would be considered a fair-sized city in the west. H. J. Small, superintendent o motive power and machinery of the Southern Pacitfc Company has placed an order for seventy five locomotives with the Bald win Locomotive Works, and has also ordered 1,600 box cars, 1;000 flat cars, 500 oil cars and 300 construction cars. The Phoenix Enterprise some what excitedly asks: "The leg islature of Colorado has had the nerve to tax the mines. Will the next legislature of Arizona have the same kind of nerve Will it? This thing of forcing the poor alfalfa growers to run the territory is getting just a little bit monotonous." TEARFUL OR CHEERFUL? Whether a woman is tearful or cheer ful depends not on what she lias materi ally, but what she is physically. Many an indulgent husband is driven almost to despair by tue teartul outburst OI a wife who has "every thing she wants." He wants to know what's the matter. But the wife can't tell. She only knows that she is de pressed and despondent. Such a condition is lisjinllv rc- lited toL s&ie form v or womanly disease. The mental depression has its corresponding womanly iveakness. Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription changes tearful women to cheerful women by curing the diseases which cause phys ical weakness and depression of spirits. ..... . j i ti It establishes regularity, aries uuueaiuiy drains, heals inflammation and ulcera tion, and cures female weakness. Mrs. Alice Adams, of laboratory. Washing ton Co.. Pa., says; 'Witn many matins i wme to let you know how I am. I, can say oy ocxi s irA vnnr ViMn I am well. I have taken six bottles of'Dr. Pierce's Favorite Preacription and two of his Golden Medical Discovery. and I can do all my work. 1 can't praise your niedt ciue too highly. I wilt recommend your medi cines as long as I live. If any one doubts this give them my address." "Favorite Prescription" makes weak women strong ana sic:i women wen. Accept no substitute for the medicine which works wonders for weak women. Keep the bowels healthy by the timelv use of Doctor Pierce's Pleasaut Pellets. JOHN H. BAUMAN REAPPOINTED. Hon. John H. Bauman, one of the most able and conscientious federal officials in the service, has recently been reappointed as receiver, of the Tucson land office, which position hehasheld for the past four years with credit. The Sentinel, congratulates Mr. Bauman on his appointment and hopes that he may hold the position as long as he wants it. The following from the Tucson Star will be of interest to the friends of Mr. Bauman as well as those of the present register of the land office, Capt. Milton R. Moorg: "Mr. Bauman has a wide ac quaintance in Arizona, Having served as chairman of the Apache county republican committee and a)so as .chairman of the territo- ial committee: of that organiza tion. He has made a good, rec ord in the land office as well as a citizen of Tucson, having estab lished a home in the old pueblo. "Captain Milton R. Moore, who several months after Mr. Bauman was installed became register of the land office, to succeed Eugene J. Trippell, has until fall to complete his term. Both officials are old soldiers, and it is very likely they will conduct the affairs of the land office each four vears following their first term." Another Railroad Through Im perial. Wm. H. Carlson, ex-mayor of San Diego, is sanguine that the railroad from San Diego to Yuma, being promoted by him, will surely be built. The Los Angeles Express publishes the following as a result of an inter view: W. H. Carlson, ex-mayor of San Diego, is" in the city in the interest of his long-loved project of a railroad line from San Diego to Yuma. This- time, he says, the scheme is bound' to go through. "Wealthy bankers of New York who have confidence in me are willing to advance the money required to build the road and to run the chances of selling out to one of the great transcontinental companies after the connection is complete,'-' says Mr. Carlson. "The Imperial colony is helping the proposition along, for it is apparent that the development of the vast holdings of that cor poration will be productive of freight that will give earning capacity to the road. "The road is to be 175 miles in length. It will cost 8,500,000 and 'the money is available for the work. Construction will be gin at Yuma and proceed west ward by way of the Imperial colony lands. I have retained my franchises from the Mexican government and terminal facili ties at San Diego await our use. The great irrigation enterprise at Imperial is a success. The territory occupied by the colony will make railroading profitable through what was once the great Colorado desert. With harbor facilities at the western terminus and direct eastern connections the ultimate rmrchase oi our property for incorporation with some large railway system headed toward the Pacific coast is a matter only of a few years." Mr. Carlson went from San Diego to Washington several vears ago. When the war with Spain was ended he was ap pointed railway commissioner for the government in Cuba. In that capacity he formed a wide acquaintance with moneyed men and with those who are looking for favorable openings for rail way building in this country His personal energy and the merit of his pet proiect won their hearts, and it is believed that he is not over-sanguine in thinking that the rolid will be built. A single piece ol: ore repre sents nothing but itself, and an assay made from it tells nothing except as to that single speci men. A true sample must be composed of some of each part of the original mass and in pro portion which that part was of the original. It must be iden tical with the original on smaller scale. In applying this to sampling ore, it must all be brought to a size, the smaller the better, thoroughly mixed and Xhen quartered () down repeat edly until the final sample is as small as is convenient to carry away. If ore is worth sampling at all it is worth sampling well, and nothing but an average sam ple is of any value to any one. Mining and Scientific Press. Yuma has voted to disincor porate. These small towns that wished to put on city airs have found it to be a costly business, and are glad to quit. Douglas International. Bro. Meeks is a little mixed as to the municipal status of Yuma. Our reason for disincorporating was because we have outgrown village clothes and want to put on a few "airs" by reincorporat ing 2 a city.

The com-. missioner of Indian affairs adver tises for bids for supplies as follows: The items for the Phoenix school include 50.000 oounds of rolled barley, 170,000 pounds of beef, net, and 180,000 pounds of flour, to be delivered at the. school. For agencies and for other schools in Arizona, supplies are required as follows: Colorado River (agency) 26,000 pounds of rolled barley, 2d. 000 pounds of beef, gross, and 28,500 pounds of flour; (School) 20,000 pounds of rolled barley. 70,000 pounds of beef gross, and 28,500 pounds of iiour. Fort Mohave school, 125,000 pounds of barley, 30,000 pounds of beef, net. and 50,000 pounds of flour. .Truxton Canon school, 5,000 pounds of rolled barley, 36,000 pounds of beef, net, 36,000 pounds of flour and 5.000 pounds of oats. Trux ton Canon school, Hualapais, 10.000 tounds of flour. Truxton then comes the work of develop ing the prospect into a mine. This is not the work simply of a week, a month or even a year at all times. It is frequently the case that the largest and best mines are the ones most care fully prospected and developed before becoming dividend pay ers. It is obviously not within the province of the average pros pector to develop such a prop erty; it takes more money than he can command. Then a stock company is formed to raise money to de velop the property. If the or ganization of this company is fair and equitable, and the man agement conservative and hon est, there is no reason why all connected with the enterprise should not receive handsome re turns on their investment. All companies are not organ ized on this basis, however, hence it is well for a prospective purchaser of stock to satisfy himself that the investment he is about to make is in a company being developed in a legitimate manner.

The Imperial Press, in a rude, ribald, sarcastic manner, pokes fun at the alleged government experts who have been "investi gating' and condemning the lands of the Colorado desert. There Avas one particular loca tion which these experts declared solemnly and positively would grow nothing it would be use less to plant anything upon it. Yet some one, without the fear of the expert before his eyes, plowed that land, planted it with barley; and now comes the Press with a handsome photograph showing a heavy growth of grain thereon, knee high on the 15th of February, on the identical soil that the experts condemned as being as barren as the north pole. Beyond the cold state ment of fact the Press makes no comment. But it is awfully cruel of that paper to do such things. Alameda Encinal. Placers in Arizona. What are likely to prove good Dlacer diggings have been re- cently discoyered near what is known as Eell Springs at the foot of Chiricahua mountains in Cochise county. In a report re ceived in Los Angeles about them it is stated that the gold bearing gravel extends along the foothills of the range for a dis tance of five miles and down to wards Sulphur Springs valley for three miles. The gold is coarse, of high grade, running over 18 per ounce at the mint. It resembles the best placer gold of California, and looks as tho' it had been washed a long distance.

In 1855 the United States had a fleet of 2,348,358 tons on the ocean. Last year an American fleet of only 879,595 tonnage was engaged in foreign commerce. Between the same years our pro tected coastwise shipping in creased from 2,491,198 tons to 4,488,421 tons. The figures cany their own lesson of how the American merchant marine can be built-up, and how de- There are only a few gilded domes in this country. One of the first in theUnited States was erected on the state house at Boston, and one of the most notable is that on the new con gressional library at Washing ton. Chicago is soon to have the most unique and probably the most beautiful on the new federal postoffice building. In this case the dome will be of glass with gold leaf on the in side, thus securing the effect of a great mirror with a golden backing. The surface will be smooth and glistening, the rains will wash it clean, and the gold will be protected from dirt and weather. They say that when a hungry Indian goes hunting he shoots the first thing he sees, if it's on ly a crow. If he kills a duck he drops the crow; if he gets a deer he throws away the duck. Some girls are regular Indians, aren't they ? Carroll County Mirror. This paper might be filled with items like the following, and every one be the absolute truth : "I had rheumatism for years and tried almost everything, but got no permanent relief until I used Chamberlain's Pain Balm, three bottles of which have cured me. It is the best medicine I ever used. Philip E. Rhoads, Penn ville, Mo." Pain Balm is for sale by R. G. Cotter. There is always money for mining investments, but many would-be investors fancy that nothing but a developed mine should have money put into it. The men who have made the most money out of mines in this country have not done so by buying developed mines at full value, loaded with commissions. The great fortunes of Haggin, Tevis, Mackay, Walker, Hay ward, Clark, Stratton, Cruse, Daly and a hundred others were made by developing prospects into mines. That is the way big monev is made in mining; that way lies the profit. Developing a Mine. Developing a gold mine has come to be as practical a matter of business as building up a great commercial business. A promising prospect is lo cated, prospect work to demonstrate the probability of a good body of ore is done, NOTICE.
