an untimely end In this city today-He
was found to be suffering from a
swelling of the left leg between the
kuoe and ankle that required
8uruie.tl attention, and Instead of
being taken to tlio train to continue
hU journey to Fort Wayuo and Milwaukee
he was conveyed to St Vincent's
hospital, where he was oporated
on. Tlio operatlun occurred at 3:45
o'clock and lated only a short tinio
after which ho was taken ton prlato

taking light luncheon at 7:50 he was
conveyed ou n stretcher to his train,
which had been backed up on a "Y"

Tho first publie knowledge of the
true state of affairs was through a
which was issued by Secretary
1'irtelyou, and In a short time the
newspaper otllees were tho center of
excited crowds. "
Tho swelling of the presidents leg,
which made the operation necessary .
was occasioned by a bruibe lie received
at the lime of the trolley accident at
Pittsiield, Mas'., whon the preideni's
was run into and demolished
by a car. Beaido being injured in the
face and across the eye, the pnsidont
at that time receiud n blow upon tho
lower patt of tho lolt leg, betweon tho
ankle and knee, but ho paid no attention
to It, ignoring it as being only a
slight bruise, nut worth talking about.
For several w osks ho took no heed of
it, but finally It began to pain him eo
as to enfurco his attention. After starting
on hia western trip he determined
that some one, perhaps Dr. Lung, who
was aboard tho train, should cxatnlno
it. The doctor did so, and pronounced
it a serious matter. Whon iu Detroit
the doctor liually decided that something
would hiuo to bo done. After
consulting with Dr. Richard ion, another
member of the party, It una

of bloud poisoning it probably

The managoraont of the United
Verde inino at Jeruino, Ariz,, Is drowning
the tiro now burning with carbonic
dioxide. Tho plan is essentially the
same as tlrst d.ovised by tho Calumet
& Hccla at the time of the second great
llro In that mine, some llftoen years
ago. ltig steam boilers aro used as
generators, and carbonic acid gas is
made in them from tho action of sul
phuric acid on crushed hmestono and
forcod Into tlio mine, under tho natural
pressure and gravity, the gas
ing heavier than atmospheric air. i
With the Jiilno openings carefully
sealed this gas will eventually drown
the ilanies as effectually us water, and
cannot ruin tho mine openings, as wa
ter would. The process is slow, out
sure, and tho United Verde management
is show ing commendable wisdom
in taking this bull by tho horns, as tho
tiro has been burning for more than
two years, and fire in a big body of
sulphide, copper ore is about as bad as
lire in a coal mine evon worse in

The Copper Situation.
Tho copper market has been quiet,
but the advance in prices lias been
fairly well held, with only a slight re
notion. Tho disposition continuoa to
be evident In some qucrters to depress

and other literature has appeared
most or It being entirely unworthy of
notice. Some business continues to
be done, chielly for next yeat's delivery,
at current prices.
The report of Mr. John Stanton, who
acta as statistician for the companies,
shows that the total production of tlio
United Suites In August was Si, 290
tons, which is an Increasoof 2,029 ton
over August, 1901. In the eight
months to tlio end of August the
United States production shows a to
tal of 192,59.1 tons, or 14,417 tons more
than In the corresponding porlod last
year. The exports from the United
States for the past eight months have
readied the large total of 12:5,128 tons,
very nearly double that for the first
eight mouths of 1901. The present
conditions show that the supply Is not
at all in exccsi of consumption and
that, tliero is no reason to fear any accumulation
of stocks,
q'lie statement of current stocks
compiled by Dr. Ledoux, which was
published in our columns, is bolug generally
accepted by the trado in spite ol
all the elTorts made to discredit It, and
there is every reason to believe th;it H
represents tlio actual state of the case;
that is, that there Is no accumulation
of copper at the present time beyond
tho normal stocks which must always

the importance of tho prlnclplo involved

Truman Delegates Withdrew and Held a Rump
Convention Two Tickets in Field.
A Florence. Ariz, dispatch of September
23, to the Tucson Citizen, say s :
The dmocrats of Pinal county met iu
convention here yesterday and split
up into two contending factions.
Tho liL'ht was over tho utlleo of
sheriff, tho present incumbent of that
oillce, W. O. Truman, and T. W. Wills
being candidates.
Truman had twelvo votes and Wills
trvolvc. Tom Weedin, who was managing
Wills' fight, secured tho temporary
organization by contesting the
Florence delegation and depriving
them of any voice. This caused ugly
feelings, as it seemed to bo understood
that some of tho votes pledged to
Truman would bo thrown out.
'lruman and his followers left the
convention and organized ono of their
own. As a result two full tickets wero
named, contering around Truman and
Wills, tho candidates for bhcriff.
It is understood that twenty of tho
twenty-four votes wore pledged to
George P. Blair for councilman, but
when tho convention split ho declined
to allow the uso of his name.
The following is tho Wills ticket
complete :
Council Charles Lucas.
Assembly Pete Schilling, L. C.
Sheriff Tom Wills.

Probate Judge Charles Douglas.

Los Angeles papers state that a
letter from Dr. W. L. Woodruff, of
Troy, Arizona, was read at a meeting
of the Los Angeles board of health, in
which the writer complained that
ground pepper sold by a certain wholesale
house In Los Angeles was adulterated.
The doctor stated that recently,
whilo tho cook was seasoning a dish of
strinu beans with some of this pepper,
the lid came off the pepper box, and
most of the contents was poured upon
the beans. The stuff was scraped off
as best It could, but a good deal re
mained on the beans, which were not
rendored unduly hot by tho surplus of
seasoning, but all who partook of the
beans became 111 immediately afterward,
tho doctor himself being seized
,U1, , virilntit, vomiting bPCll. He
inclined to tho belief that the sickness
was caused by some poisonous
inKoil with the peppor. A
sample of the pepper has been sent to
Dr. Powers for analysis, and If tho
commodity is found to be adulterated
its manufacture and salo by the Los
Angeles firm will be looked into by
the health authorities.
