The Pioneer Paper of Arizona. PRESCOTT, ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY. FEBRUARY 25, 1903. Thirty-Ninth Year. MAIL DELIVERY Prescott Has Be n Examined By a Government, Official With Re gard to Extending System. Some Conditions Which Will Have to Be Met First By Residents of the City. Mr. Erwiu, su,erntendent of the free mail delivery system on the Pa- ciflc coast, left this morning for his tne.v looked the real doll, they were home in San Fru icisco. after having made UP to imitate, spend a short time in Prescott exam-1 The following s(ecialties were given ining into the question of extending j y littIe totli which was highly amus the free deliverv . vstem of this civ. ! 1DP- The local postal authorities have been triyug to get the department at Washington to .end the system of free delivery in Piescolt and as a re sult of this request Mr. Erwiu has been sent here to investigate the matter. He gave out Hh information before and wel1 rendered, leaving that a further investigation! Sterling Nott rendered a baritone would be held within the next couple;80!0 in a T pleasing and effective of months and if the necessary im-! manner eliciting an encore from the nrovements had ! .-en made hv that time the free delivery limits would be extended and another carrier added. There is one thing our people should i not overlook in regard to this and that is the street grade must be com- i plied with, the sidewalk put in and ' kept in repair and the houses num- be red. If these requirements are met. and it is perfect 'v proper that they ' should lie. the government will do its ; part. Let those who now live beyond the present limits and who desire the benefits of free delivery, get to work so that when the inspector returns he will have no hesitancy iu ordering the extension. In anticipatiou that this will be done, there will lie an examination ! held bv the civil service examining board for the posit ions of carrier and clerk, in the near future, the exact dates will be announced soon. Should the order be made it will go into effect July L 1903. I A SPLENDID SUCCESS. i That Is What the Federal Investment ; and Trust Company Is Proving to be. About two mouths ago J. B. Mon nette, a wide awake and rustling young business man, succeeded in completing the organization of the Federal Investment and Trust com pany with such tiien as F. E. Biles, the well known mi'iing man. as presi dent, E. R. McDowell, secretary, while Mr. Monuette acts iu the capa city of general manager. The nature of the biOJiness transacted bv this firm is the banter prepaid ::nd several different classes of install- i ment certificates. These certificates I make it an incentive for the holder to ! set aside a certain amount of money each month which will, in addition to helping a person save a portion of their income, put this money so set aside in position to earn a nice profit on the investment. Mr. Monuette has succeeded in con tracting with the Hartford Life In surance company, of Hartford. Conn., which is one of the oldest and strong est in the country, to underwrite and insure the different classes of stock, so that should a man die before the j maturity of his stock, it immediately becomes matured and the face value of his certificate is paid to his bene ficiary. The company covers Utah. Nevada. New Mexico and Arizona with the privilege of extending their territory to other states. Mr. Monuette has recently returned from a trip to the northern part of Arizona where he did an immense business. They have now some eight or ten traveling agents in the field, all of whom are doing a fine business. MAY LOCATE HERE. R. H. Elsey. of San Francisco, an Ex pert Engineer, in Prescott. R. H. Elsey. an expert engineer, who recently arrived in this section from San Francisco, was a caller at the Journal-Miner office yesterday and in course of a conversation with a Journal-Miner man said that be had decided to make Prescott his fu ture home as he believed this countrv was destined to liecome one of the greatest uiiuiug sections of the west, and that he believed the opportuni ties for one engaged in his line of business were as great or greater here than any place he knew of as the fu- j ture of mining looked very bright and where there was great activity in i mining there was bound to be a great demt.nd for inachinerv and machin ists. Mr. Elsey said that he had lieen j actively engaged iu building, plan- i uiug and operating machinery of: every kind, and had made a special study of the great Corliss engines. , and believed he as thoroughly under- i stood this class of machinery as any man ii the west. Mr. Elsey is not only a mechanical engineer but has devoted much time and study to civil and miuiug engi- neering aud is therefore a pretty handy mau in a mining country and will no doubt do well iu this place, He has not yet opened a regular office, but is making his headquarters at the Sherman House where he can lie seen or addressed. THE DOLL SHOP. Home Talent Furnishes Au Evening of Excellent Entertainment. The entertainment given at the! oera bou-e last evening was certainly the best ever given by all home talent in the town. Mrs. Kautz and her two daughters who were the guiding spir its iu its production aud under whose direction aud training it was pre pared deserve great credit for the complete success which was achieved. The Doll Shop is similar iu many respects to the popular comic opera. The Toy Makers. except that children instead of grown persons are emploved as the dolls, aud there is no sugiug ao ipaniment to their 1 perf ormi. nces. Dr. Blaiu was the keeper of the doll shop and his collection consisted of the following beautiful creatures. French doll- -Esther Ross. Sousa Kenneth A it ken. Marguerite Eva Behu. The Monk John Shull. Organ Grinder Manuel Souora. Flower Girl Edith Martin. Opera Singer Philip Riblet. Dutch doll Lila Campbell. George Washington Thomas Ross. Powhatan Jack Claypool. Newsboy Teddy Ross. Puck Frevor Moden. Quakeress Belle Hill. The antics of the dolls, when wound up and started in motion furnished no end of amusement to the audience, whi,e in their unwound condition Serpentine dance Elaine Wetmore. Tambourine dance Grace Andrews. Song by Puck Frevor Moden. Spanish dance Bern ice Moden. A song by Nina Greenwood, Iva Ellis, Katie Burke. Vera Greenwood and Elaine Wetmore was very beautifully : audit nee. Marguerite Shull. Fanny Thomas, Frances Claypool, Rachel Bretherton, Juanita Morrison and Florence Sheard. as a baud of fairies with Irene Curry as their Queen presented a very beautiful appearance while Maliel Brisley as a beggar girl was a splen- Hd character. An English family looking over the . stock of dolls was represented by Ir. I Vount. Mrs. J. E. Morrison and Belle Hill Irene Hesla and Douglas Rib- let. Miss Eva Behu as Marguerite intro duced an old fashioned spiuuing wheel, the one iu use being a genuine sample of the kind used in early days, end being over 100 years old. The Prescott orchestra won fresh laurels for their matchless playing i last night and elicited an encore from the audience, something a Prescott audience seldom accords to an orchea-- At the conclusion of "The Doll Shop" entertainment a very beautiful play was produced entitled 'The Way j to Win Him." This plav was drama- tized for the occasion, by Miss Fran ces Kautz the plot lieing taken from a story recently published in the "Smart Set." It is full of amusing situations and was well played throughout with the following cast of characters : Tom Harris. "All iu the Dark. " Mr. Remington. Grace, his wife, victim of Freuch theories. Navarre Kautz. Fiflne. Orace's French friend. Fran ce- Kautz. The Brat. Grace's sister, Yera Greenwood. K B. Wilkins. a poetical aesthete. Mr. Porter. Morgenstern, a jeweler, H. E. Mes sick.

Monroe Cousolidated Mining Com pany Secures Rich Property on Lvnx Creek. Senator Rowe recently sold to Mr. 1 i Donald C. Monroe his group of eight j claims on the head of Lvnx creek at j Walker, and we see by the records , that Mr. Monroe has transferred it to the Monroe Cousolidated Mining Company. This property needs no i comment as it is well known to be one of the best group of mines iu the territory. We understand that under j the muaagement of Mr. Monroe they will start immediately extensive de-I velopmeut. and reductiou works will be installed within the coming year. We congratulate the Monroe Cousoli- dated Mining company on their pur-! ! chase, and under the management of .Mr. Monroe their success is assured tor he has been with us tor the past ' two years and has shown himself to be i competent and attends strictly to business. Walker is destined to lie a great miuing camp as there is at the head of Lynx Creek a very rich min eral belt aud they will have railroad facilities within the next year which will make oierations couqiaratively easy. The property purchased by Mr. M onroe is au extension of the cele brated Mud Hole property owued bv i the Peuu (lold Miuiug company, and 1 adjoins that property. There are also a number of other rich properties sur rounding the property, aud as far as development work has progre -wd. this property shows up as well as any in this rich district.

KOSHER BIG SALE OF TAILINGS Crowned King Tailings Sold to New York Capitalists Work Will Start Soon. Controlling Interest in Entire Property Owned By Company Under Negotia tions By Same Parties. The Journal-Miner has repeatedly spoken of the impetus given to mining in the Bradshaw mountains by the building of the railroad there. The road lacks several miles of lieiug com pleted to Crowned King which will be its southern terminus, but the assur ance that it will lie constructed just as speedily as possible, has been the means, not only of encouraging own ers of claims in that section to prose cute the work of development with re newed vigor, but has lieen the means I of attracting capital from the outside for investment there. A deal of considerable magnitude was consummated there last week, one which aggregate S75.O0O to SO. 000 and one which may result in a deal of much larger magnitude. The Journal Miner last week mentioned the fact that Geo. P. Harrington had gone to Crowned King with a party of New j York capitalists on mining business, The visit resulted in the sale of the! tailings of the Crowned King com- pany. amounting to some 30.1 HO or 40,000 tons. The parties returned Saturday evening and left for New York yesterday to purchase machinery i for working the tailings and just as j soon as this cau lie placed on the ground work will be commenced. The tailings are reported to be very rich through the expense of the working them will lie considerable, and expeu sive machinery will lie required also There is an unofficial rumor current I in connection with this deal that Messrs. Sheckels and Harrington have also given the same (wrties an option on their interests in the Crowned King property. This would give the purchasers a cont rol of this valuable mine and would result in its lieing started up again. THE EL CAPITAN r f mm m n at I une oi me uesi LOOKing rroperxies in this Section of Pniintrw J . Extracts Frcm a Report By dpt. L. I Ph; 4 lips io Dougli-s, Lacey Co., Stockholders- The Journal -Miner acknowledges the receipt of the printed report of the annual meeting of the stockhold ers of Douglas, Lacey Co., which was held in New York city recently. The report is full and complete report ing every word that was uttered by the numerous speakers, giriug reports from a great number of properties under the managemeut of the firm. There were over 3B0 stockholders j present and their report make a priut ' ed book of nearly magazine size thirty pages closely priuted. Amoug the reports was one from Capt. L. D. Phillips of Prescott. who has charge of a uumlier of properties belonging to the company in An- zoua. The report is quite exhaustive, being a review of the work done on the several properties and the showing made by them, but a portlou of his report on the El Capitan will be in teresting to the Jourual-Miner read ers, as it is right here at home and the truth of his statements cau be easily verified. The captain said in part : "There are a great many ieople here whu have asked me about the El Cap itau. 1 always feel, aud my wife says. 'El Capitau is all right.' 1 never shall get tired of talking about El Capitau. aud 1 hoe that by the next annual meetiug of the companies represented by Douh.s. Lacey A Co that I shall bs here with a report aqoal to that presented by Major Kusseil. and be made happy by speaking as j loudly aud n fully of the properties in Arizona as he has of those in Cali fornia. "Captain Phillips theu described the location and surroundings of the El Capitau property. He alluded to the fact that they were in conqia ratively close proximity to the great United Verde, owued by Senator Clark of Montana, which has lieen immensely profitable. and said: 'Now we are not positive that we are on the sani" mineralized dyke, but we foel pretty sure of it. The vein is traceable through the Black range in our direction. I have lieen over that property, aud I find exactly the same, surface formatiou and the same geo ! logical construction and conditions that mark El Capitau. aud when we recollect and I pledge yon my word it is a fact there is no month that that proerty does not pay Mr. Clark from 1880,000 to 1. .100.000, we can see ; the possibilities for El Capitau. The United Vi"-de propeity was owned by five different outfits lief ore the ores were reached that makes it what it is today. Parties sold to one another until Mr. Clark succeeded in purchas ing it and developing it to its pres ent profitable condition. Since thaf 1 1 me there has lieen no explanations necessary. Now the El Capital! is in tin- same formatiou and on a line with same vein, but that would not count for much unless there were other si'.'iis that would lead one io iM-lieve we are over a body of ore that will be sat isfactory. We have sunk a shaft of about :t00 feet, and the work has lieen well done. At two hundred feet below the surface we have driven, what we call in mining, a 'cross cut iu order to develop, if possible, any strata of ore that might iy us In haul to the mill, and in the crosscut! iug we have driven 12.1 feet lioth ways. We have not vet encountered any walling, but we are in a vein of matter such as is usually found in veins of that class. It is mineralized vein matter. This fact, and the fact of its closeness to the United Verde, would not be suffi cient to tie one to El Capital). Init I want to tell you that out of that cross cut. which is extended across the dyke, which will run something like !8 feet. I think, along a pretty fair sized stratum which showed pretty fair value, every pound of ma terial out of that work, without any exception whatever, carried a per centage of odfBK There is from a half ol uie per cent, to as high as 22 ler ci ui of copper in some of strata we have struck. Now we the ex" xct, and I feel sure, there is not a shadow of doubt iu my mind of the final profitable outcome of the El Capitau property and I would not say it if I believed there was. I be lieve we are over one of the- greatest ore bodies ol the western country in that propetry. We are going to de velop it, and when we do I am of the opinion that should everything else that Douglas. Lacey A Co. represent prove a lose, El Capitaii will pay them out. "As I said, we are down there 300 feet. The rock is very bard, the work of the development of the prop etry to the present time has been done by hand, which is a slow pro cess where we have hard material to work through It has been decided, after discussing the matter with the firm that 'puts up' for us-and praise the Lord we uever have any trouble about out bills out there that we i would equip thai property with mod- j ern appliances for sinking and use air drills in drilling the holes for the blasting, instead of doing it by band. and that we put a Diamond Drill on the projierty at once, which will be a large saving of epxeuse. " ! Captain Phillips, again referring to! the dyke, said: "It is a great big dyke. It is over 180 feet on the sur- face aud may be wider below, but cer- tainlv it is wide enough to go down UNO feet at least with a Diamond Drill, aud we can undoubtedly make from 1.1 to 'JO feet in IS hours, that will be 30 to 40 feet iu 21 hours. We can go down very fast with that and take up the core all the way. bring it up in the tube and assay it every day. We will then know just what we cau get every day. and when we do that there won't lie any hesitancy in the minds of the stockholders about putting up the money to go ahead.

OiUMMM of the Metbo- tells the simple story of the good Sa dist Episcopal church, announced as , maritau. the subject of his Sunday morning sermon. "The Realities of Life," us ing as a text the words: "What is your life?" James. 4:14 The sermon in brief was as follows: "We may the better arrive at an estimate of what life really is by first considering and rule cannot always enforce them some of the things that it is not. selves and as there were no others Life does not consist iu mere earthly present to blame or praise each passed possessions. "A mall's life eousisteth by on the other side. One. Faith, be not iu the abundance of tne things lieviug him to lie hurt, the other. J which he possesseth. " One may be a i millionaire and live the life of a brute. The Rich Fool said to his soul: "Eat, drink and lie merry." An ox is cajiable of such a philosophy as that. A man may lie a pauper iu this world and own a mansion iu the next. Lazarus, amid all his wretched poverty, could have sung: "My Father is rich in houses and lands. He holdeth the wealth of the world in his hands! Tho' exiled from home, yet still 1 may sing: All glory to God. I'm the child of a king!" The world's redeemer was constrained to say: "The Sou of man hath not where to lay his head ; Paul had never a home. of this world they were poor, but in the realities of life they were infinite ly rich. Heuce earthly wealth is no ! essential part of trne life. Life is not mere intellectual hril i liaucy. There are brilliant villains, j a ,au Qf mst brilliant intel lect, died iu a druukeu debauch while on the way to his own wedding. De Quiucy. another of the world's most brilliaut intellects, was ruined by the opium habit. This, theu. is not the real life. All may not lie brilliaut : but all. by the grace of Hod. may live grand aud noble lives. Earthly wealth and intellectual power are jjoqJ jifts, if properly used; but they do not constitute the real life of mau, uor !ire they essential thereto. I Attain, vour life is not II I II I what others think of you. With many people the question of supreme momeut is: "What will others think? What will the people say? Such is never the utterance of a trne man. With him there is but one question: "What is right?" That settled and his course is clear. Turn we Dow to some of the things that really do constitute life. Aud tirst of all your life is w hat you really are. It is what God knows you to be. as distinguished from whirt mau lie lieves you to be. It is character as distinguished from reputatiou. Men have false standards for measuring hu man life. Your reputatiou is man's measure of you. your character is God's measure your true self. It is further true that, your life is what you make it. Christ has broken the power o siu, he ha- purchased de liverauce for every captive soul. He has made possible the perfect restor ation of God's image which sin had shattered to every child of Adam. So that everyone is responsible for the life he lives. The destiny of i every mau is iu his own hands. Her edity aud environments are mighty : powers, but not invincible. By the grace of God every life may rise above j them both to a plain of noble man- hood or womanhood fwme one aajl : ! ijfe to Jesus, and he w ill make its eVery day happy aud useful. He has jail eternity iu which to develop our I o"l's wondrous jiowers. " 'A commonplace life.' we say and , we sigh.

Rev ()f tht M E. Church, south, preached very "In ipieutly yesterday morning on the sub ject : "Some Thoughts from the Parable of the Good Samaritan." The ...elier suit) in nart. this subiect was suggested iu meditation over the Suu itiv school lesson for today, which is taken from 1st Corinthians VMh chap ter. This chapter is kuosvn by many , ri'rn..i in , the nn.ii of religious experience. St. Paul sneaks iu highest terms of Line ul which y not ou,y 0hiefest amoug the c,)Hst jan b(U the essen,iitI. without which the other- are "sound- ! ing brass and tinkling c.wnl.al. noth ing aud profitless," eveu to the pro testor and possessor. Hut St. Paul teaches almost entirely ill the ab- tmofc, He rarely illustrates by con-mar- crete examples. This is the great dis tinguishing mark lictween Christ .lesus and St. Paul as teachers Christ almost unhersnllv inl rodui-es concrete cases to which his teaching ppliaa with mighty force. The parable before us. Luke 10th. chapter 2.1th to 27th verse.-, is a strik ing illustration of this principle, and is in fact, the theory set forth iu 1st man's whole existence. Chri-t proceeds in meh a moaner as to cause him to answer his ow n question, aud asks what is written in the law : How readest thou and al low - this man lo declare his own faith then demands that he shall live up to his Breed. Here the lawyer raises a piestion with the seeming ml 0B( ion of disputing: perhaps iutemiinc to say men differ as to the meaning of the term neighbor. Christ uses the former plan to barn what to require. lb does this quite adroitly. Doe- no! say I hold that this or that man is your neighbor but . : I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 j 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 i 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Both the Priest who first came and the Levite who followed might have lieen expected to render assistance. 'for the wounded man was. in the nar rowest conception, their neighlior. , and tbiswas their business. But law Hoe. eiecting that from some source help would come, ami it did come. The good Samaritan, a fitting emblem of love. cone. saw. helped and provided for further help in case of further necessity. So while rule and law always ask. what must I do? Love always impure- what may I do? Love eks M boon l.iries but the ut- most, asks for no limits but the most extreme, and only stops at the end of opportunity and ability. How like the Christ who seeing our extremity. when there was none to help, when the Jews could not only refuse to help but would shut up the Apostle the kingdom of (tod to us poor gen ln 'h1 goods tiles, bore our sins, propitiated for our transgressions and by his stripes we are healed. After this simple but striking story Christ again asked, what thinkest thou, who was his neighbor? The ready answer came: "The one who showed mercy." and theu Christ an--u.red. "Go thou and do likewise." OfaMTTC Christ said nothing about holding io their theory of perfect love of which we hear so much in some re ligious meetings. He did not require him to tell either his faith or experi ence at every opportunity, for, alas, so often prof. .on and possession are so widely different : imt he only said, "Go thou and do likewise." Let ns do thus, that the world may know that we have been w ith Jesiisand that, seeing our good works, they may lie constrained to glorify Our Father, Who is in Heaven." Rev. E. H. Taft. at the Baptist church, preached at 11 a. m. on the subject "Be thou strong, therefore, and show thjaoif a mau," 1 Kings 2:2. "Solomon has said that the great need today is not so much more men as more mau. We need meu of con viction, men with high ideals, meu who have true principles. There are questions to be met. There are prob lems to lie solved. There are respon sibilities to face. At the time of our text. David was passing away, aud Solomon was coining to the throne. The parting charge is given: "Be thou st mug therefore and show thy self a man ' Prove yourself wise, valorous, and above all loyal to (iod. Do not be a tool: b. a man: do what you beliere to lie right. We admire manliness. We are proud of meu who are courageous like Joshua, self-disciplined like David, self -reliant like Nehemiali. deeisiw like Moses, above reproach like Daniel, prayerful like Elijah, master of their passious like Joseph. We look with pride also upon men of modern times, who have had the courage ot their couvictions. In 1805 John Stewart .Mill was the radi cal candidate for Westminster for a seat iu the British parliament. Dur ing this candidacy he was obliged to submit to a searching lire of questions and comments umiu some of his phil osophical opinions and theories. On one occasion an oppoueut asked him whether he had not made a state ment which reflected severely upon the veracity of Euglisb workingmen. A triinmiug oliticiati would have ex plained away the offensive statement. A witty diplomat would have evaded direcr ret.lv John Stuart Mill was 1 ill!,-, t II Ul'llll . Liau simply an honest mau.

The truest manhood claims as au essential element, likeness lo Jesus Christ. He is the only perfeel man. .Man wa.- made in the image of God, ' but he siuued aud the only way to restore that image is to let the life of Christ be the inspiration of his life. 1 Only tie Muster can bring out the sweetest music. Mendelssohn once went on a visit to the great Krielierg organ. The old custodian at first re fused to let him play uMin it, but after a time consented.

Jewell, of the firm of Jewell A' Co.. of Los Angeles, a Journal Miner n an learned that that gentleeaen was contemplat ing a business move which will Ik- of peel advantage to the people of Pre cott iu point of enabling them to pro cure fruit, vegetable-. xvultry. eggs, etc., at quite a saving over what it now costs them. Mr. Jewell's plan i- to incorporate i large room lories firm to be compo-e.l parth of local wople and partly of their firm in Los Auge- les and the cmidui tim,' of a large e elusive wholesale commission business in the lines above referred to. The advantages of this firm would be that they could be supplied from the Cali fornia as well as the local market in large quantities, and further that the markets wcould be watched daily by the Los Angeles end of the firm and when good opportunities offered, to buy at a low figure and in large quan tities. Shipments could then be made in car load lots. It would be Mr. Jewell's idea to put in a large storage plant where these goods could be kept fresh and in good shape for some time in the summer and they could then be distributed to the surrounding miuiug camps and towns. This plan would enable the local merchant to purchase his goods in these lines right here at home, in just such quantities as he desired, and would prevent loss from overstock. It would also enable him to buy at a less figure conse quently enabling him to sell at a less figure aud the result of this would be that much more ol this kind of goods would lie used than at present, when each merchant must purchase his own stock and have it expressed to him at great expense. It was also learned that an effort would be made to have our local mer chants become interested in the new enterprise so that they would feel an interest in its welfare and at the same time reap a double benefit from it. The fact that there is no wholesale house iu this line in Prescott at this time, the firm of Walter Hill having recently failed in Phenix and Los An geles, ami their branch house having been removed from this city, it looks like an enterprise of this kind ought to be made a success. MR. BATES VISIT. Will Remain in Prescott and Again Engage iu Mining in This Section. Wells H. Bates arrived in Prescott yesterday from the east on a busi ness trip accompanied by his wife and their daughter Miss Grace Bates. Mr. Bates has been instrumental in securing a large amount of capital for investment in this section in various enterprises which he has promoted. He was the promoter of the Walnut Grove Water storage enterprise which was carried to a successful culmina tion, so far as the water storage prob lem was" concerned. In fact its ;.-uc-ceess. in thisrespect. resulted in ;its own destruction. Mr. states had another large storage and irrigation enterprise under -way at Bill Williams Fork when the gov ernment stepped in and claimed the grouud for the same purpose when there was nothing left for him to do but to step dowu and out, although he had been at a great expense in making surveys and getting things in shape. Mr. Bates during all these years has been interested in miuing in this sec tion and proposes to develop some rich properties owned by him in Weaver district. He is greatly im pressed with the progress made in building up a new and larger Prescott since the big fire of 1900 and expresses great faith for the future of the city. Mr. Bates expects to spend a large portion of bis time here in the fnture, .vhile bis family will reside in Los Angeles or Pasadena RIGHT KIND OF CITIZENS. The Journal -Miner acknowledges a very pleasant call from G. R. Blasin game. who with his family arrived in Prescott a few weeks ago from north ern Arkansas and will make this their future home. Mr. Blasingame has purchased three lots on the corner of Alarcon and Carleton streets and has erected a comfortable home for him self and family. Being a man of good judgment he has decided to build two more co: tages on his other two lots for renfal purposes. This is the kind of citizen- the Journal-Miner wel comes to our midst, men who will go to work and help build np the city in a good substantial manner and not sit down and wonder if the town is going io last, and be afraid that if they in vest a fete dollars they may regret it. There are a few people who have been predicting ruin aud disaster to Pres cott for the past twenty-five years while Prescott has gone right along improving with every year and the w heels of progress have sent these same "prophets" to a seat away back, and now all you hear of them is when one of them occasionally bemourns the fact that he did not have the foresight to take advuatage of some opportun ity that bad been offered him in the past but which he was afraid to take hold of for fear the city would not hold out, or that values would not keep up. The fact is there there has never been a backward step in the business of this city, but on the other hand every year has found the city in lietter -h.o than the year before in every sense of the word. The Journal Miuer lielieves that the past is only au iutlex of the future, and that those who pin their faith to Prescott will never have occasion to regret it. A TRAIN LOAD OF SHEEP. I'a.-sed Through Prescott Yesterday Evening for Peoria. A rather unusual freight traiu passed through Prescott about six o'clock yesterday evening bound for Peoria. Arizona. This train was com IMised of 18 of the largest size double deck sheep cars, each car containing about 2.10 sheep or nearly 5000 sheep in the traiu. The traiu was being propelled by three large mountain en gines. Auother peculiar thing about the cargo composing this train was the fact that the sheep were from New Mexico, having been shipped from Shawanee, near Grant. New Mexico. This may seem almost like shipping coal to Newcastle to ship sheep from New Mexico to Arizoua for pasture, but the facts are that the pasture in the Salt river valley this year is an surpassed and several hundred thou sand Ileal of sheep are lieing shipped into that valley for pa-ture aud shear ing, anil the fame of that section has leached even beyond our own borders.

PRISON REMOVAL Legislative Talk of Removing Ari zona's Penal Institution from Yuma to Benson. The Reform School Building to Be Used as Means of Accomplishing This Object. The story of Friday's legislative day as briefly told by the Phenix Re publican is to the effect that nothing practically was done, but it is gener ally argeed by members that the next week will be a lively period. Some thing will lie done one way or the other with the eight hour bill and the woman surtfage bill. But the instru ment which will particularly stir up the animals will lie a bill for the re moval of the territorial prison to Ben sou, and its installation there in the building erected for a reform school. The building like a former one built under appropriation of a demo cratic legislature has proven to be a "white elephant" ou the hands of the territory, as there uever has been any need for such a building. It is now disclosed that there was a meeting of a large number of the members of the assembly on Thursday night at which it was agreed to move the territorial prison from Yuma to Benson. It is said that most of the uorthern mem bers have pledged themselves to the suppo t of the bill. There are reasons why the Maricopa members would support it and tnere is said to be an argument why the members from Gra ham and Gila shall fall in line. A member of the assembly said yester day that there was no earthly doubt that the bill would be passed by that body. He added that be could not see how it would be defeated in the coun cil. The ffeom-anl ical argument in favor of it is that with the completion of the Phenix and Eastern road Ben son will be the most easily accessible point iu the territory. It is under stood that the bill for the establish ment of a territorial poor farm at Solomonville will be sacrificed to the prison removal bill. Other matters before the legislature are also hinged upon this one. Both branches adjourned before noon on Friday until next Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock. The most in teresting matter was the presentation of a memorial from the boards of su pervisors of Pima and Santa Cruz counties requesting the legislature to memorialize congress asking au appro priation of 117,000 for the payment of the so called Pima county bonds. The arirnmetit presented to eoneress in this behalf is that but for the action of that body six years ago that debt would never have been saddled upon the counties. A memorial embody ing these argumeus was adopted in both houses. In the house Woolf introduced a bill to encourge the establishment of irrigation works by exempting them from taxation. One or two other bills of minor importance were intro duced which constituted the day's work of the legislators. AFTERNOON 0 MUSIC. Monday Club Entertains Members and Large Number of Guests With Musicale. Today was musical day and guests day for the Monday club. The usual day of meeting is on Monday but as one of the mem tiers bad an important engagement yesterday, iu order to accommodate her the club very con siderately changed the date of meet ing until this afternoon. The meeting was held iu the large ball of the Odd Fellows building and as each member was permitted to in vite five friends as her guests, nearly every lady iu Prescott received au in vitation to be present, and few there were who received invitations who did not attend. The leaders of the day were Mrs. F. W. Herndon and Mrs. Anna Levy, and they had very beautifully printed programmes to serve the dual purpose of informing the memliers and guests of the good things in store for them duriug the afternoon, as well as souvenirs of the occasion. The colors of the club are gold and silver, aud the programmes were printed on heavy white ledger paper. in letters of gold. The title page! contained the words "Au Atteruoou of Music" with the date of Ihe meet i ing and the names of the leaders. The second page contained the names of the authors of the music rendered, during the day, and the others were devoted to the uumbers ou the pro gramme. Mrs. B. D. Billiughurst. president of the club, presided at the meeting! during the transaction of the regular! routine business after which it was ' turned over to the leaders of the day. ( Mrs. Levy was uuable to be pres- I ent and take part iu the lay's pro- ceediugs ou account of receiving word this moruiug of the death of her father. She was down on the i.ro- ... gramme for a paper on music and had ! it prepared ready for delivery and it was read by Mrs. D. M. F. Weeks. Mrs. Herndon. the other leader, read a paper, also ou music. Mrs. H. B. Long also gave a talk on Ethelbert Nevin, one of the musical authors whose works were reviewed during the afternoon. Mrs. Long also recited Nevin's " 'Twas April" to a piano accompani ment by Mrs. W. A. Cline. The following was the musical pro gramme rendered. Piauo solo " Arabesque. " Chamin ade. Mrs. Ken. S.

Ross was substituted for it at almost a moment's notice and sus tained the part admirably, demon strating the possibilities of a vocalist who thoroughly understands the art of music, the piece being a very diffi cult one.

Bonnevie, a well known min ing engineer of Denver, Colorado, has been in Prescott for the past two or three days, on business connected with his line of work- Mr. Bonnevie is the senior member of the firm of Bonnevie & Lee. consulting engineers, of Denver. The special work which brought Mr. Bonnevie to this section was an order to prepare plans and specifications for the erection of a 100-ton mill at the Crown Point mine. He was unable to give the Journal Miner any definite information con cerning the proposed plant, as he bad not visited the property yet and could not tell what the needs would be, fur ther than he had rcecived an order to come to Arizona and examine the property and see what would be ; needed. Since coming here be has al.-o been in consultation with other mine owners regarding the erection of mills. This is his first visit to this section but he is very favorably im pressed with the mining possibilities and predicts a wonderful future for Yavapai county. At the United Verde mines things are taking on their old time busy ap pearance. Last Friday the third fur nace was blown in, and they now have the same number at work as before the general shut down. Both furnaces that have been forcing gas into the fire h .ve been shut .off, which must be a -tire indication that the fire in the mine is out, and that a large num ber of miners will soon be pnt at work. During the past ten days extra trains have been run on the railroad, bringing in coke and coal, and taking out the product. Jerome News. Mark Murphy, who has been super intendent of the Sultan group of mines, owned by the Oold Link Min ing company of Chicago, came np from that property yesterday. Mr. Murphy has ,-evered his connection with the company but says the prop erty owned by it is a splendid one. He says that fully 20,000 tons of good ore is blocked out in the mines and 1 that the company will shortly erect p mill to work this ore. The mines are located in the Santa Maria district. He says the district is quite active generally. Merchants Mining compnay's stock took a jump today to $1 per share and judging from present indications we predict it will take several jumps be fore it stops. A crew of carpenters were sent out from Prescott Wednes day to erect buildings and ore bins and the Samuel Hill Hardware com pany have men on the ground build ing two three thousand gallon galvan ized iron water tanks. The railroad company has completed their estimate of the cost of building a new side track for the mine, and the grading will be started within a few days. With the amount of ore blocked out in the mine, the transportation and smelting facilities so close at band and the conservative management, this enterprise is undoubtedly an as sured success. F. E. Howe came up yesterday from Weaver, where he is interested in a mining property, with T. M. Earn- hart. of Kirkland, and which they ' have been working for some time. They have been running a drift re cently at the 175 foot level in which tbey have encountered eight feat of ore which gives an assay value of $12 per ton. They have negotiations (lending for the sale of the property at a good round price, and if it fails of consummation, they will at once commence the ecrection of a mill on the property. The force of men at the smelter is being graudally increased with indica tions that theU. V. will be employing more meu within the next thirty days than at any time heretofore. The five, six and seven hundred foot levels are being opened up from the new shaft : two of the small furnaces are in operation and a third ready to be blown in. which is to be followed soon, it is understood, by a fourth of the same size. The large five bun- dred ton furnace will require at least " another week to complete it. There will be no dearth of men whs they are required; every train coming in brings men seeking employent. Many of those coming in are men laid off wheu the mine and selter were shut down. Jerome Reporter. FOUK FATALITIES IN WRECK. Cleveland, Ohio. Feb. 24.
