Its first issue is right up to the standard and we hope it will be a financial success. Bucky O'Neill is now mayor of Prescott and we believe he will make that old burg the best mayor it has ever had. Charles W. Pugh, of the Stock man, is a candidate for the govern orship. Pugh is all right and would make Arizona an excellent chief executive. Senator Money, of Mississippi, who is now in Cuba, says that he is not in sympathy with the Cu bans, but he desires to get all his information on the subjec. of Cuban recognition from personal observa- tion. Ex-governor Pennoyer, of Oregon, has returned one-half of his salary, as mayor of Portland, to the treas-; ury and the other half he has do-; nated to charity. Pennoyer is the 1 right stuff, no matter if he is c-lled an anarchist and repudiationist. The Washington female physi cian wio willed that her body should be diss cted by feminine medical students bestowed a high favour upon her sex and showed a ! desire to gratify the passion every woman has to pick another woman to pieces.

The poor have a hard time, it is true, but still they have something to be thankful for. For instance, they are exempt from that terrible disease, so common in this country and sometimes heard of in Europe, known as kleptomania. No au thenticated case of this incurable malady has been reported where the afflicted individual was not eithei rich or a istocratically con nected. F-x. The will of the late Capt. George E. Lemon of Washington, publisher of the National Tribune and Amer ican Fanri3r, provides for the im mediate suspansioii of the publica tion of those papers. The Tribune was one of the best paying news paper properties in the country, having a circulation of nearly a quarter of a million, and great sur prise is caused by the clause in the will requiring its suspension. "Restored confidence" was to set all things to rights and bring on an "era of prosperity" after McKin ley's election. There was no scar city of money, nothing wrong with the financial system, only a de pression in business caused by a lack of confidence due to a fear that Bryan might be elected and free coinage of both gold and silver again become the p licy of this country. In the interest of "the business men" a democratic presi- dent contriouted to the election ot a republican candidate of their choice a "sound money" man and the shout went up th it a great sixteen hundred thousand dollars than calamity had been averted.

The first quarter of the current Hayes Valley Advertiser. fiscai year showed a falling off in receipts. Murphyite Economy. We are constrained to call the attention of the members of the recent grand jury to a few facts and figures relative to the alleged econ omy of J. M. Murphy in adminis tering the affairs of this county. We are willing to accord to the ex district attorney credit for the good he has done which is nit, but we are unwilling to have the people bamboozled into believing that he has really done something meritor ious, inow, in tne matter or county expenditures, as taken from the record, we find that last year ex ceeded the previous year by nearly ,0U()p. Ihe expenditures of the last three years are as follows. 1S)4 (election year) -1519,492 13 1895 14,581 88 1896 (election year) 21,173 96 Of course, last 3'ear was an elec tion year, but the exnense of an election in this county is less than 2,000-1', therefore it cannot be claimed that the election caused the great increase in expense. Mur phy must hav used his most art less smile to cause a grand jury to award him the palm for economy. Had he been elected to another term in office his economical meth ods would have caused an aching void in our county treasury. Since 1890 thu expense of operating coun ty affairs has been gradually re duced from 24.084.66? to 14.581.881'. Of course Murphy had to allow political healers a whack at his the treasury and the people had to suf fer for it. Cowan was allowed a rake-off of 200$, for doing that for which ue was drawing a salary and the 150$ contingent fee was again in evidence. Fees to the amount of 2,046.44? were allowed county officers, while for the previous year but bbo 60$ was allowed. An in crease of 7,01)0$ in county expense in one year is certainly deserving of honorable mention. Economists of the Murphy order ought to be brought to the front. It is economy 0f this kind that has made the ame of Grover Cleveland a house- liold word. Alfred H. Franklin, son of Gov jp ran Klin, has ueen appointed as- sistant Uniteil states attomey to succeed Mark Sinith) resigned. The man ig paid to active, energetic lawyer. ' " be About ten o'clock Wednesday morning one of Ihe large converters in rhe United Verde Copper Uimpinv's smnlrer wae tipped over in readmes to receiye a lid die of molten metal from one of the fur naces. Standing a few ieefc from Ihe month of ihe converter, one of them was Im-itinc the large piece of iron with which the mud is forced into the hole of the furnace from which ihe metal is run, stand K. A. Bogard and John Piper, when, without any warning, the metal in che converter spouted out covering the breast, arms and hands of young Piper and burninir him in a horrible manner, and a qinntity of the hot metal hitting Bogard on top of the head, burn ing him badly The workmen who wit nessed the acciriet t describe as heart rending the sight of the hot metal burn ing the' men and they unable to give any assistance. As soon as possible the men were taken to the hospital where all the care possible was given them by Dr. Wood and his assistants. Young Piper's hands and breast were very badly burned, the flsh falling from the bones during the dressing of the wounds, and the poor fellow was relieved from his pain b" death on Wednesday at 2 o'clock, twelve hours after the accident occurred He was from California where he has relatives He was about 27 years old. Bogard is still alive, but his chances for recovery are very slight. He is about 24 years of age and a new comer to Jerome. Arizona Mining Nws.
