A Host of Articles Suitable for
Chrismas Gifts Among' them
things of Sterling Silver and
Useful little pieces for
partial list: .
Did you ever notice a person on picking up these
small articles look for the Sterling mark and how sat
isfied they seemed when they found it. A present is
valued, or should be, for the
it expresses, or that prompts it. There's a double sat
isfaction in sending gifts so worthy and genuine as
EBONY is very popular. We wonder if the way
it sets off and enhances the beauty of silver is the cause
of it. The dull black ebony, mounted with silver, is
certainly a very rich, and handsome combination:'
A set that deserves, special mention consists of a set
of military brushes, bevelled mirror and comb all in a
neat silk lined case. This set is $10.00.
Another set this for a woman consists of brush,
mirror and comb. The back of brush and mirror is of
carved leather. Unique, very. $6.00.
.Still another set, bru-.h, mirror and comb, of ebony Is only $5.00
JN STERLING SILVER, the dull finish, called
-French Gray, has come into favor. In these goods
there is nothing newer than this dull finish in L'Art
Nouve au designs.
Piles, cuticle knives and paper cutters, $i. each.
Rolling blotters, $2.25 and 3.75.
Soft little brush and handled comb for the baby,
Silver plated, double com
partment cups with badger
$2.00 to $6.00

A. P. SKINNER,
Republics Will Fight
Buenos Ayres, Dec. 9. Chili's reply last night to Ar
gentine has been received, but the government has refused
to make public its contents. Immediately upon the receipt
of the answer a special cabinet meeting was called, after
which the naval reserves were ordered to mobilize imme
diately. It is generally believed in official circles that the
answer was not very unfavorable, but it is feared that an
open rupture between the two Republics miJy occur at any
time. Chili continues buying war ships and making other
preparations which augur for anything but peace.
Speak Highly of Bisbee and Its
Prosperity Will Visit the
Town of Arizpe
Messrs. H. E. Davenport and J. L.
Parker, two prominent mining men of
Chineplls, Chihuahua, Mexico, spent a
few hours in Bisbeo yesterday on their
way to Arizpe.
Speaking of their mines in Chihua
hua Mr. Davenport said to a represent
ative of the Review:
"Yes, we have what wo think is the
richest silver mine, carrying copper,
In the state of Chihuahua. We have
something like 1,800 Mexican miners,
with American foremen, and we are
taking out large quantities of very
rich ore. It is true that the price of
silver has f.ilien considerably in the
last few days, but I think Mexico will
stick to the white metal for some time
yet. They are paying a high rate of
Interest, but we have such large quan
tities of silver and it is worked very
cheaply. Up to the time I left we bad.
contracts for all of our bullion, and I
don't think there Is much chance to
feel scared as to the final result. When
silver gets too cheap for us to mine we
will then turn our attention more
cli-sely to copper. We have some good
copper properties adjoining us and we
have been shipping the- Guggenheim
smelters eeveral, cars Osgood copper
ore every month. We intend to In
crease our shipments about the first of
"What do I think of Bisbee? Why,
you people living here don't half know
how much your place is advertised.
Everywhere you go one hears of Bis
bee. Why, every other word nearly in
El Paso is Bisbee or the Bisbee road.
My last visit to your camp was some
six or seven years ago, and I hardly
knew the place when I got off the train
yesterday evening. I think bisbee has
a great future before it. I always did
contend that .there was more than one
body of ore here, and 1 have hear
the big strike over in the Lowell. That
means a great deal for that part of the
country, and I am really glad to see it.
"Mr. Parker and I are making a trip
down into Sonora to look over some
property near Arizpe. We have heard
a great deal about that section, and as
there are no rail connections across
the Sierra Madre mountains we bad to
make the trip around by El Paso and
Bisbee. This property Is copper,. and
If it is up &o expectations we may pay
more attention to copper than we have
in the past."
Both Mr. Davenport and Parker left
on the evening train for Douglas and
will return to Bisbee In about ten iiajs.

FIGHT IN MEXICO
Magnates Battle for the Posses
sion ef Rich Coal Lands
The struggle between W. C. Greene
and Charles P. Egan for the possession
of rich coal land in Mexico grows
more interesting as the days go by.
The following gives the latest' details
In the case:
Charles P. Egan, ex-commissary
general, backed by Alvinza Hayward
and Charles D. Lane, California mining
millionaires, is flghtln;:, W. C. Greene,
the copper king of Arizona, for posses
sion and title to 3,000,000 acres in Mex
ico, supposed to contain rich coal beds.
The land is in Sonora and was part of
the estate of an American named John
son, who went to Mexico and married
a century ago.
Greene and Egan discovered that
this land contained rich coal mines and
sought to s cure control of the prop
erty. Greene bought from Carlos John
son, the present head of the family,
the mineral rights to the big grant for
a nominal sum, while Egan purchased
the same rights directly from the gov
Greene secured possession first, but
Egan resorted to the courts and Greene
was declared a trespasser. Greene
went into the courts, and after pome
litigation the Egan party was forced to
quit the disputed land. By this time
both sides had machinery on the
ground, ready to-rush development,
while Greene had begun a railroad
from Guaymas through the coal fields
to bis copper mines at La Cananea.
Egan then went to Guaymas a.d se
cured the aid of a local judge and dis
trict officials, and Carlos Johnson and
P. C. Fenner, Greene's mining expert,
were dragged Into court. Egan took
possession with armed Mexicans to al.t
blm, but Greene sent a gang of Ari
zona cowboys and the Egan men were
Last week Egan Interested the Mex
ican government in the fight and troops
were sent to San Marcial. near the coal
mines. The Euan party were rein
stated, but Greene applied more diplo
macy and the former commissary gen
eral was removed.
Last Tuesday Fenner and' Johnson
were again arrested and confined In
jail at Guaymas. Both parties are still
full of fight.

territory and is watched with a rreat
deal of interest by-Boards of Supervis
ors in adjoining counties. Supervisors

tors at the hearing of the case and the
array of counsel with their batteries of
authorities are the center of attrac
tion. Friday an4 Saturday was spent in ar
guing a demurrer presented .by attor
neys for the county, which was on the
general ground that the complaint of
the Copper. Queen company did. not
constitute a cause of action 'and asked
that the demurer be sustained, which
if it had been, wou'.d have been a par
tial victory for the county. The argu
ment closed Saturday evening and the
court announced that a decision on the
demurrer would be banded down Mon
day morning at 10 a.m. "Consequently
the plaintiff withdrew its forces to Bis
bee, but vwere on the ground again

whose parents and grand parents were
slaves, and who himself worked until
three years ago setting up pins in a
Chicago bowling alley, has presented
a rapid fire gun of ,hls ownp invention

his work adopted by the United States
government. He is without more than
a common school education, and his
surroundings were not calculated to
cultivate his mind on the subject of
mechanics. Yet he has invented this
gun, applied -for a patent, on it, success
fully defended his application against
the suits -of Maxim and obtained all
the claims he has asked for, nineteen
in number. Ordnance experts who
have examined the gun speak highly
of its merits, while Chicago capitalists
