also said that the condition of tho copper

no hurry about starting up at present.
There was increased production of
25,000,000 pounds for tho first six
months of 1002 over the lastsix months
of 1900. This immense production oi
copper will naturally produce a surplus,
and this surplus would forco tho

are but one or two mines that can afford
to produce copper at 10 cents per

The Western .Mining World takes
an optimistic view of the coppor situation.
It says : "Europe will need a
vastamount of copper during tho noxt
four mouths because of the increased
consumption thoro and lessoned exports
from here, and hecauso contracts
with copper producers will expire, and
then American consumers must of
necessity become large contractors for
their wants. Wo estimate that tho
consumption for tho ensuing four
months of this jear will be fully
50,000,000 pounds per month In America,
and that contracts will bo made
for export boforo December which
will aggregate 12,000 to l.",000 tons per

THE COMPLETE RETURNS

the Majorities and Pluralities Given In
the Table Below. The Election Loosely
Conducted. Many Votes Cast Were Illegal.
The democratic primary election
hold In Globo on Saturday last aroused
grcator interest, probably, than any
similar contest previously held here.
The reason Is to be ascribed tx the
largo nunibor of candidates for places
on the ticket.
The election was supposed to have
boeu held under the primary election
law of the territory and the Crawford
primary system, but. In reality, few of
the legal requirements goernlng elections
In Arizona wore observed.
Willi but fow restrictions as to tho
qualifications or voters enforced and
Inconsequence of the strong competition
for many of the nominations, tho
vote cast was unusually heavy, tho
total number being 197. In 1000,
when the numbor of electors in the
precinct was much greater than il
now is, 551 votes wcrecxstln Undemocratic

LABOR DAY CELEBRATION
Fine Program Arranged by Globe Miners' Union.
A General Holiday.
Indications nro that Globe will lead
all other towns In Arizona in the
observance of Labor Day, Sept. 1.
Globe Miners' Union is displaying
much lntorest and enthusiasm in tho
celebration of tho worklngmen's holiday.
Tho union has appropriated a
largo sum of monoy, and has arranged
au elaborate program to cover tho
entire day and evening, to hicludo a
grand parade headed by the Globo
band, sports and athletic games of
various kinds during tho afternoon,
nnd in tho evening a band concert,
speaking, and a grand ball, with refreshments,
at Odd Follows' hall.

of tho day, and J. J. Loamy, master of
Tho observance of Labor Day In
Globo will bo general; all tho business
houses will be closed and the peopio
generally will participate in the celebration.
An Interesting Cave Discovered.
Win. MoFaddon.of the Sierra Ancha,
tells us of a in am moth cave, two
miles from his ranch, which he discovered
last winter ,and recontly
oxplored for the lirst time. It was
Toted who were not qualillcd. This
is shown to bo true by the fact that
Mark Smith received only 414 votes In
this precinct in 1900, which Is 117
votes less than were cast in the primary
of that year, and 53 less than
wore cast last Saturday.
A combination of candidates headed
by Leroy Middlcton for sheriff, attempted
to vote most of the Mexicans
In tho camp and met with flattering
success during the. first hour after the
polls opened, but from that time,
owing to stronuous objection on the
part of some of the other candidates,
the election olllcers challenged Mexican
voters, and few were found to be
qualified. Foreigners of other nationalities,
however, were as a rule, not
challenged, and many republicans
voted also, and the result was the
reform almod nt by the now primary
system was entirely lost.
The counting of the ballots began
an hour after tho polls closed and was
not completed until 2:30 Sunday morn-lug.
During the early hours of the
count tho court room was filled by
candidates and Interested friends, and
many remained until the result was
Returns from outside precineU were
slow in coining In. Tho result at San
Carlos and Summit precincts were
made known Saturday evening and
the Salt river returns arrived about
the time the count hero was completed.
Theodora Crand.il!, who arrived
Monday, announced the vote at
Tonto, and Tuesday evening tho mall
brought the returns from Rye and
Payson. Pleasant Valley returns
wero brought by courier op Tuesday.
Pine has not been heard from at this
writing, but tho returns from that,
precinct will probibly arrive by mall
this evening. They cannot cha.ige
tho result f tho vote for any olllcc.
Colonel Wilson has 4(i!) votes to O.
M. Shannon's 01, for delegate to congress.
The Pino vote will Increase
The county convention will meet
here novt Saturday forenoon to canvass
tho voto and name a new central
evidently the homo of cavo dwellers
in remote times. The cave is about
100 feet In length and contains four
teen chambers or rooms, some of them
of large dimensions. The entrance is
hidden by a growth of brush, and at
tho extreme end of tho cavern Is an
opening to the surface, made evidently
for air and as an exit of escape.
The floors of the rooms arc cemented
with clay and sand and arc covered
with a foot or more of dust, the accumulation
of centuries. The only
thing of interest found was a human
skull. The rooms are strewn with
broken pottery. A more careful examination
of tho cavern, which Mr.
McFadden Intends making, will doubtless
disclose other interesting relics.
Wado Collins is In receipt of a letter

most Important factor in Old Dominion
a Hairs Is the contemplated reduction
of freight rates by tho Southern
