wants to come to Bisbee.
Santa Clausville, Iceland, Dec. I2, 1901.
Mr. A. P. Skinner, Main St., Bisbee Arizona,
Dear Sir: In looking for a location as a dis
tributing point, for my visit to the dear people of
Bisbee. I find your store most central and I take
the liberty of asking permission to make my an
nual display in your window.
The articles I have concluded to present
this year to your townspeople, consists of good
warm Underclothing, Socks and Shoes, as well as
a nice collection of stylish Hats, pretty Shirts,
and some of the most fetching Neckwear I have
ever seen. I have about concluded to wear one of
the ties myself, instead of my fur coat, THEY are
I will bring several dozen dress gloves, silk
lined, that make you feel like a real Prince.
You know I never used to wear suspenders,
but this year I have such pretty silk ones that I
couldn't resist the temptation to put a pair on, and
do you know I actally feel young again. Did I
tell you about the fancy hose I am wearing. My
goodness, I am getting too giddy for anything.
Oh, but they are warm ones; and of course I
had to don a pair of those sky blue Boston garters
you told me about.
Now, Mr. Skinner, I know this is impos
ing somewhat upon your good nature, but as there
is no other location in Bisbee that suits me, I ear
nestly hope you will grant my request, and I will
try and see that you do jiot regret it.
"Very siecerely yours,
Santa Claus.

sixteen dollars in monej and a silver
watch, the robbery taking place in the
vicinity of the ranch of Charlie Cox In
Tombstone canyon and about six miles
west from Bisbee. On the same day
the robbery was committed the threo
Mexicans were arrested and identified
by tbe Chinaman. The evidence was
conclusive and S. A. D. Upton, attor
ney for the defense, haing been so ap
pointed by the court, had but little
upon which to base an argument for his
clients. The jury were Henrv Ash,
John Jolly, John Kelso, W. D. Kinsey,
H. E. Gardner, William Jones, C. Hel
ler, W. E. Bailey, T. J. Lyon, T. B.

length anil the sen ices of a Chinese

riage to Bulotti and had bad children
by her first husband To her retain
ing the no-session and care of these
children tbe husband strenuously ob
jected. It was upon this subject onlv
that there had everbeenanyOlfference
between Mr. and Mrs. Bulotti. When
he abandoned her he stated to her that
he would not return to her or contrib
ute to her support as long as slie re

- An Injury to Arizona
Tho Prescott Journal-MIner enter
tains the correct opinion that the legit
imate mining interests of Arizona have
been Injured by fake mining schemes
promoted by eastern sharps with some
obscure and worthless claims in Arizo
na, as a basts of operation. The Miner
"Of course Arizona interests will
suffer from this, despite tbe fact that
those engaged In the frauds are eastern
people. Every swindling mining oper
ation In which Arizona has been in
volved has been manipulated by east
ern people, and our citizens have had
no connection whatever with any of
them. Of the scores of mining com
panies, which have been organized,
e ery one so far has been conducted on
honest lines and the stockholders so
far as kaown are receiving honest and
just treatment. The opportunities for
investment in Arizona, where the in
vestor will receive honest treatment,
are abundant, without taking up with
the bait thrown out by eastern stock
jobbing sharks. The latter class of
manipulators are luckily few and far
between, and there are scores of strong'
financiac eastern 'companies who are
operating along honest lines in this
territory and who are making successes
of their enterprises. Some of them
are practically close corporations,
which are offering no stock for sale,
while others have stock for sale, The
best guide to the honesty of a company
is the personel of Its o dicers and the
reputation they bave for honesty and

Salted a Sack of Coke
Experiences of a Mining Expert?
When Examine Northern
Arizona Mines
An article In thelast Issueof the New
England Journal fer Investors handles
the Vulture Mining company without
gloves. It not only assails the honesty
of those who manipulated its stock,
but claims the mine is not as repre
sented and should be classed as a pros
pect rather than a mine. A. Chester
Beatty, a mining expert who examined
the property, furnishes some very in
teresting reading In the article men
tioned, in which be eavs:
"I examined tbe property in the fall
of 1899, making a preliminary exami
nation and taking a few samples at that
time, l suDsequently examined tne
nrnnnrtv thnrnnirhlv In thn fall of 1899.
and found In both cases that some one j
was irjiug bu salt tut) samples; m ioui
I bad quite a joko on whoever was try
ing to do the salting, as I left some
sacks filled with coke which were just

I used for ore, and the man who was
doing the salting did it in such a crude
manner that he actually salted the
coke so that it ran $18 per ton In gold.
Of course when I made the examlna -
tion I had my assayer and assistant
with me and found that there was a big
tonnage of ore that ran $1.50, and some
of the ore In smaller blocks would run
M to $6.
"Aiier i uiscoverea inai some one
was trying to salt me I made quite a
thorough study of the property because
I looked upon it as one which had a
certain amount of prospective value,
and which, if It could be acquired on
the proper terms, might pay to pros
pect. Now it seems to me in view of
tho guarantee made in this advertise
ment, which reads as follows, "We will
furnish a signed statement setting forth
what will be found at tbe mine, and
will extend every facility to any per
son who desires to investigate, either
in person or by sending a represents- j
tlve to the mine; if our statement upon ,

this investigation," that it would be a
very good idea U you would get them
to deposit a certain sum o' money in
the bank to pay for the engineer's ex
amination and then secure the service
of one or more well known engineers
in addition to yourself and make up a
party and go down and examine tbe ,
mine. Of course before taking this
step it would be absolutely necessary

Wonderful Yield of the Soil
About Duncan
Over on tbe Gila river, in the vicin
ity of Duncan, is vrhat may be termed
the "corn belt" of Arizona. This has
been demonstrated for years by enor
mous yields. Three years ago one
i farmer secured an average of 105 imsh-
c.s ui bum t.vu. a -zv a.., o uc.u. &.c-
cently Mr. J. E. Cosper, living near
Duncan, reported to the Copper Era
that he harvested one hundred bushels
of corn from a trifle more than three
quarters of an acre of ground. In the
Gila valley around Solomonvllle corn
Is an Important crop and the yield runs
from 60 to SO bushels to the acre, but
the soil about Duncan seems to be es
pecially adapted to corn.
Price of Copper Little Affected
The Engineering amd Min'ng Journal
of a recent date says: "In the metal
markets copper has been the subject of
all sorts of rumors, most of them orig
inating In Wall street and Intended to
affect the quotations of copper stocks.
That they are not based on any sub
stantial facts is shown by tbe but
slightly changed condition of the mar
ket. The fall in standard copper li
London has been made tbe mostof, but
it really amounts to little. The specu
lative transactions there have not been
large, and standard ban, are no longer
the test of the market. Refined cop
per shows little change."
New Charter Defeated In Phoenix
On Tuesday tbe city of Phoenix held
a special election to vote on a proposed
new city charter, authorized by tbe
last legislature. The new charter was
defeated by a vote of 519 to 46. The
Gazette says thai tbose wbo advocated
the charter were defeated by their own
lack of interest. It is believed, how
ever, that the charter .will come up
again next spring for ths citizens to
give their opinion on, and it Is believed
that the charter will receive a greater
number of votes next time. The ques
tion will not be dropped, however, as
the friends of tbe new charter propose
to keep hammering at it until some
thing happens.
