J. 0. DUNBAR'S ILLNESS.
An Operation Performed But Results
Gave No Encouragement.
A rumor was current on the streets
yesterday announcing the death of J.
O. Dunbar, one of the proprietors of
the Democrat, in Los Angeles. The
rumor could not be traced to its
origin and Mr. Dunbar's most inti
mate friends here had received no
news to that effect to a late hour last
It is probable that the rumor
started through the repeating of
news regarding his illness, brought
back by returning- excursioni-ts to 1
the coast and by letters from there.
B. F. Porter, who returned Wednes
day, said that an operation had lieen
performed, in which Dr. Wylie, for-1
merly of Phenix, assisted, and that
the operation was undertaken almost j
as a last resort. It was found that
the patient was suffering from an
abcesB of the liver, which was also'
greatly enlarged, and that the con- :
ditions were such that the surgeons
I could hold out no hope fur his re-1
I co very.
M. Jacobs also received a letter:
i yesterday from a member f his fam

.operation MM iierfxraieil last Satur-
day. but that recovery was impos
! sible. and that the end was expected

his arrival in starting the work of the

An Industry Exclusively Arizonan,
Which Is Being Developed
A few weeks since the Journal
Miner made mentiou of being the re
cipient of a sample lot of cactui
toothpicks from Joe Mayer. The
toothpicks were made from cactus
thorns and were quite unique. An
industry, involving their manufac
ture, is now being developed at Mayer,
bv a man u;tiinvl L. S. Rogers, ana
it".shu int(. , pliU. them on
the market. In their natural state,
with their external covering on, they
are dull and unattractive, besides
being too sharp to lie serviceable. To
scrape their covering off a beautiful
varigation of colors is obtained, but
the process of doing this by hand is
entirely to I altii tu be profitable. Mr.
Rogers therefore interested Joe
Mayer with him and began a series
of expensive -p) i uiinits with chemi
cals for a MM 1 of treatment by
wholesale. He has lieen rewarded by
finding the proper treatment and has
patented the process, so he will be
protected in the preparation of the
toothpicks for market.
First he gin's out and gathers a
load, and bringing them to his little
work shop, with a pair of big shears,
such as tinners use. he shears off the
thorns. Then they are treated to
various chemical baths, thousands of
them at a time, from which they
emerge brilliantly colored through
the removal of the outer surface, yet
rendered even more pliable than be
fore, instead of more brittle, as might
occur if not treated. The points
are then slightly dulled by machin
ery and they are ready for loxingaud
sale as "Indian souvenir toothpicks."
They can be sold almost as cheap as
a good quality of wooden toothpicks,
areas endurable as quills aud a genu
ine novelty. The business is still in
its infancy, but Mr. Rogers feels sure
he has a good thing, and proposes to
follow it up.

APPEAL TO GOOD CITIZEN S
Attention is directed to all republi
cans in the county to the call which
appears in this issue for the holding
of republican primaries and of the
county republican convention. Every
true citizen of the county should
take an active interest in the politics
of the county, to the extent at least
of using his influence towards the
selection of good citizens to fill offi
cial positions. Every republican is
supposed to be a good citizen, hence
no republican should shirk his duty
as such, aud each one should attend
the primaries, select the best repre
sentative citizens of the various pre
cincts for delegates, and have them
attend the convention, that they in
turn may select candidates who will
command respect of citizens of the
county, irrespective of politics, and
win their support.
Never in tha past tweuty years has
there been such an urgent need for
capable and conscientious men to
conduct the business affairs of the
county as at preseut. In spite of the
fact that our assessment roll is in
creasing yearly, the tax rate grows
apace with the increase, and with the
present high valuatiou of all kinds of
property, except that of mining, the
rate of taxation is greater than the
interest rate of the east. That tax
payers are demanding a change in
this respect is heard on every side.
The democratic party is now appar
ently in the bands of a machine,
which promises to manipulate its con
vention in the interests of continuing
the present unsatisfactory regime.
Let republicans be awake to their
duty, aud by the selection of good
men. pledged to the economical ad
ministration of affaiis. and to a re
duction of taxation, and meu with
business capacity for accomplishing
this, and honest, conservative demo
crats, those who place the community
ahead of partisanship, will rally to
their support. Republicans of Ya
vapai county, the questiou of good
government and of reforming the
the business methods of the county
is up to you.

500 feet just as rapidly as two
shifts can do the work. Since taking
charge of the company's affairs as its
president and general manager, Dr.
Bradford has secured an ample water
supply and the town of McCabe is
again lighted by electricity from the
company's electric light plant. The
latter was compelled to close down
for about two mouths on account of a
! shortage of water. Dr. Bradford is
very enthusiastic over the outlook of
the company and is confident of strik
ing the extension of the McCabe ore
body by sinking. This has been the
theory of the best miners, too. that at
a depth of 300 feet or a little more
that ore body would be encountered.
