VOL. XV. KINGMAN, ARIZONA, MARCH 6, 1897. NO. 19. y The Prospector's Flight Northward. Now again iB comiDg the eeason when the prospector takes his flight north ward. A few months ago he was driyen out of Alaska and from the mountains of British Columbia, Washington, Idaho, and northern Oregon, when the snow fell, and made his way to tne more con genial winter climates from southern Oregon to Mexico. As much as all the West from the Black Hills to Vancouver Island, Colo rado and New Mexico to California and from Alaska to Mexico has been gone over by prospectors these many years, there are being made more discoveries than ever before of mines that will be of lasting value a"d of new districts that will attract the world's attention. The prospector of to-day in spirit and charac ter is much like the prospector of years ago, but he knows more and the results of his better woik is shown in the con tinuous reports of strikes being made all over the western side of the continent. What is most significant is the fact that a very large proportion of these are made in districts that have been gone over by the prospector time and again for the past quarter of a century or more. The Fraser river excitement took thousands from California in the fifties only to be disappointed. Now with modern meth ods the mines promise to yield large re turns and are attracting the attention of capital. In the Black Hills rich mines are being found in rock that was passed over be cause it was not like that of the first dis coveries In Wyoming thousands of acres of placer are being exploited and hundreds of thousands of dollars iR being spent m water ditches. Yet Wyoming has never been known as a gold mining state. In Nevada the same stary is be ing told. In Mew Mexico and Arizona the demand ior copper has been the cause of prospecting for ore bodies car rying that metal, with the result that enough promising discoveries have been made to greatly add to the wealth of those territories. So in Montana Idaho, Colorado, Alaska and other parts of British Columbia, new districts, new mines and unexpected formations carry ing valuable minerals are being con stantly discovered by the prospector. Yet, for all he is doing, he receives lit tle reward and little credit. Capital comes in, helps him out with a "grub stake" and enable3 him to go on again like the Wandering Jew an'l the capital ist goes to senate or Europe. M. & S Press. The Apostle Paul found things stormy when he visited the island of Crete, and in his letter to Titus he eases his mind by diplomatically quoting the opinion given of the natives by "one of them selves, even a propnet of their own, who said, the Cretans are always liars and evil beasts" Then he boldly adds, "this witness is true." Whatever improve ment may haye overtaken their habit of disguising the truth in the course of nineteen centuries, it must be confessed that they haye managed to hand down a goodly share of cat and dog quarrel someness to the present generation. They are never happy but when fighting, and a fight is not reconed at its best un til it developes into a massacre. The population is made up of Moslem Greeks and Christian Greeks, either mixture be ing bad in the simple, and terribly ex plosive when mixed. The island belongB to Turkey, though it iB coveted by Greece, as if she bad not trouble enough of her own. Home rule haB been tried, but failed, because there was too little home and too much rule. The conditions are such that there is a very poor prospect for millenial peace in Crete until Greek Mohammedan and Greek Christian shall have exterminated each other to make room for their bet ters. American. Professor Blandy has made a careful compilation of the copper output for Ari zona, and finds it toots a total of 63,323, 788 pounds. This does not include the output from the great copper producing district of Globe, Gila county, which has five or six mills and as many smelters running day and night turning out cop per matte. Pick and Drill. Abandonment of a Soeial Experiment, The London Times says: "Two schemes for insurance against want of employment have exiBted for two or three years past in Switzerland, one in the canton of Berne and one in that of St. Gall. The former was voluntary, but in St. Gall ths laborer was compelled to insure. The American consuls at Chem nitz and St. Gall haye both recently re ported on the subject, and the former stateB that men whose work is steady and likely to continue bo complain bit terly that they are compelled to support in idleness others whose labor is uncer tain, but who, for that reason, are better paid when they are at work. "It is not in the nature of things for such a system to succeed, even among ho loyal, loving and gentle a folk as the Swiss. The ef fort is not vain if it will teach the thoughtless how hard it is to make laws, or to institute any system that is to take the place of thrift and economy during the days when work is plentiful.' Some time after this report the consul at St. Gall wrote that the experiment had been abandoned at the instance of the labor ers themselves. He says they 'found that a system which insured against loss of work resulted in the promotion of laziness and idleness In fact, a knowl edge of the existence of this system of insurance had drawn to St. Gall a con siderable number of unemployed from other parts of Switzerland, with the ob ject of obtaining support at the expense of resident laborers.' Hence 'he system disappears on and after June 30 next." It is reported thit the Olondyke placers, on the Yukon, have bpen found to lie on the British side of the line, and that the miners, both American citizens and British subject?, hail this with de light. The Alaska Searchlight says : "For years the Yukon has been a large gold-producing region, but not one dollar has our government expended in build ing trails or assisting miners in any way. All it has ever done has been to give these people Deputy Collectors of Intern al Revenue and Customs, and a poor mail service one season. Now there is to be a radical change. The Canadian Government will doubtIeas pursue its wise and liberal policy, build trails, pro vide courts, etc. It is a lamentable fact, but nevertheless true, that the Yukoners, before another year has rolled around, will sing "God Save the Queen" more heartily than ever they sang '"My Coun try, 'Tis of Thee." The Philadelphia Engineering Com pany will, in a few days, ship overland to San Francisco and thence to Japan an immense steel plate smokestack, to equip a large, new electric light plant in Yokohama. The stack is a huge affair, being 175 feet high and seven feet and three inches in diameter, in the clear, weighing over 90,000 pounds. There are few larger steel stacks in this country than the one tor the Japanese plant. The contract for the stack was awarded by S N. Isbida, a Japanese engineer, who is in this country, representing the Yokohama Company. Several Phila delphia firms have received contracts for the machinery equipment of the plant. Exchange. Did you ever notice that those who criticise schools and teachers the most severely know the least about them ? No person has a right to criticise the work ings of a school who has never visited it, and can have no positive and direct knowledge with regard to it. There is one point, however, on wh'ch you can judge a teacher without a personal in spection of her work, and that is if the teacher does not have the respect and esteem of the scholars as a rule (not your child but all of the scholars) that teacher is a failure Exchange It is said that the longest suspended wire in the world is in Switzerland. The wire has just been stretched across the Wallenstadt lake in the canton of St. Gall, by the Swiss telephone adminis tration. The wire is suspended from two iron towers erected for the purpose, tha distance between these supports be ing 2,400 meters. At the lowett point it is 40 meters above the water. The wire is of steel of the best quality and is 2 millimeters in diameter. No. 360 Application for a Patent. U. S. LA.ND OFFICE, j Prescott, Ariz., February 8, 1897. j Notice is hereby given that Wm.
