Pioneer Paper of Arizona. PRESCOTT, ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 4, 1903. Thirty-Ninth Year. CENTENNIAL Celebration in New York of Anniversary of Bir;h ot John Wesley. President Roosevelt's Address on Method ism Which Was Delivered Yester day in Carnegie Hail. New York, Feb. 27. The bi-ceuten-uia! meeting of the birth of Johu Wesley was celebrated here at Car negie hall last night. Amougthe speak ers of the occasion was President Roosevelt. whoM' address follows : Mr. Chairman. Ladies and gentle men : 1 am glad of the chauce of address ing this repres. H alive body of the greaUcburcb which Wesley founded, on the occasion of the commemoration of the two hundreth anniversary of his birth. America, moreover, has a jeculiar proprietary claim on Wes ley's memory, for it is on our conti nent that the Methodist church has received its greatest development. In the days of our colonial life Meth odism was not on the whole a great factor in the religious and social life of the people. The Congregational ists were supreme throughout most of New England : the Episcopalians on the seaboard irom New York south ward; while the Presbyterian congre gations weit- numerous all along what was then the entire western frontier and the Quaker. Catholic, and Dutch Reformed church each had develoo-I menus in special places. The great r growth of the Methodist church, like the great growth of the Baptist church, began at about the time of the Revolutionary war. Today my theme is purely Methodism. Since the days of the revolution not only has the Methodist church in creased greatly in the old communi ties of the thirteen original states, but it has played a peculiar and prominent part in the pioneer growth of our country and has in consequence assumed a position of immense in nortance throughout the vast region ! west of the Alleuhenies which has been added to our nation since the!ana sympathy for. aud under days when the Continental Congress l first met. For a ceutury after the declaration of independence t he greatest work of j our people, with the exception only of the work of sell preservation under Lincoln, was the work of the pioneers as they took pos.-e.-. ion of this conti nent. During t hat century we push ed westward from the Alleghenies to , the Pacific, southward to the gulf and the Kio (Grande, aud also took posses sion of Ala-ka. T! rk ot advanc ing our Ix.undarv. ui rushing the frontier across forest and desert and mountain chain, was the great tvpical ; work of our nation: and the men who did it the frontiersmen, the pion- eers. the backwoodsmen, the plains- men. mountain men formed a class by themselves. It was an irou task, which none but men of iron soul and iron liody could do. The meu who carried it to a successful conclusion had characters strong alike for good and for evil. Their rugged natures made them poers who served light or darkness with tierce intensity: and together with heroic traits they had those evil and dreadful tendencies which are but too apt to be fouud in characters of hero;c possibilities. Such men make the most efficient ser vants of the Lord if their abounding vitality aud energy are directed aright : aud if misdirected their in fluence is equally potent against the cause of Christianity and true civili zation. In the bard and cruel life of the iorder. with its grim struggle agiust the forbidding forces of wild nature and wilder meu. there was much to pull the frontiersman down. If left to himself, without 'moral teaching and moral guidance, without any of the influences that tend toward the uplifting of man and the subduing of the brute within him. sad would have tjeeu his. aud therefore our. fate. From this fate we have been largely rescued by the fact that together with the rest of the pioneers went the pion eer preachers: and all honor be given to the Methodists for the great pro portion of these pioneer preachers whom thev furnished. These preachers were of the stamp of old Pe'er Cartwright meu who suffered .nn.-ouir nr.. uaiusui - i in common wnn tneir nock, and wno in addition tamed the wild aud fierce i spirits of their fellow pioneers. It was uot a task that could have been accomplished by men desirous to live in the soil places of the earth and to walk easily on life's journey. They had to possess the spirit of the martyr.-: but not of martyrs who could merely surfer, not of martyrs who could oppose only assive endurance to wrong. The pioneer preachers warred against the forces of spiritual evil with tiie sauie fiery zeal auden ergy that they and theirfellows show ed in the coutpiertt of the rugged con tinent They had iu them the heroic spirit that scorn ease if it must le purchased by failure to do duty, the spirit that courts" risk and a life of j hard endeavor if the goal to Ik- reach- 1 ed is really wort h aitaiuiug. (Jreat is-) our debt to the-e men aud scant tde i patience we need show toward their ! critics. At times they seemed hard aud narrow to th..-.- whose training aud surroundings had saved them from similar temptations: and they have leen criticised, as all men. whether missionaries, soldiers, explor ers, or frontier settlers, are criticised when they go forth to do the rough work that must inevitably Ik- doue by those who act as the first harbingers, the first heralds, of civilization iu the -world's dark places. It is easy for those who stay at home in comfort, who never have to see humanity iu the raw. or to strive against tbe dread fnl naked forces which appeal- cloth ed. hidden, and subdued iu civilized life it is easy for such to criticise the men who. in rough fashion, and amid grim surroundings, make ready the way for the higher life that is to come afterv -irds: but let us all rememlter j that the MUtempte.l ami the effortless ! should be cautious in paxsiug too I heavy judgment upon their brethren who may show hardness, who may be guilty of shortcomings, but who nevertheless do the great .lee.!- by which mankind advance.-. These pioneers of Methodism had the strong, militant virtues which go to the ac complishment of such great deeds Now and then they liet rayed the shortcomings natural to men of their type; but their shortcomings seem small indeed when we place Ix-side them the magnitude of the work they achieved. And now friends, in celebrating the wonderful growth of Methodism, in rejoicing at the good it has done the country and to mankind. 1 need hardly ask a body like this to remember that the greatness of the fathers becomes to the children a shameful thing if tbey use it only as an excuse for inac tion instead of as a spur to effort for noble aims. I speak to you not only as Methodists I speak to you a.- American citizens. The pioneer days are over. We now all of us form parts of a groat civilized nation, with a complex industrial and social life and . i , , . . f . i , infinite possibilities both for good and for evil. The instruments with which, and the surroundings in which, we work, have changed immeasurably from what they were in the days when the rough backwoods preachers minis- tered to the moral and spiritual needs of their rough backwoods congrega- tions. But if we are to succeed, the spirit in which we do our work must be the same as the spirit in which they did theirs. These men drove forward. and fought their way upward, to sue cess, because their sense of duty was in their hearts, in the very marrow of their bones. It was not with them I B"JUJClu'" l" w luUNUW " "" " adjunct to their theology, -landing ' Parate and apart from their daily rrl I 1 ;a MAM. il 1. I " wiemweea aays " WeiI &u,,a- Anev I10' divorce tne spiritual irom tnesecuiar. They did not have one kind of con science for one side of their lives and another for another. Well, if we are to succeed as a na tion we must have the same spirit m us. We must lie absolutely practical, of course, and must face facts as they are. The pioneer preachers of .Metho dism could not have held their own for a fortnight if they had not shown an intense practicality of spirit, if thev had not lossessed the broadest standing ot. their tellow men. tint in addition to the bard. practical com- mou sense needed by each oi us in life, we must have a lift toward lofty things or we shall be lost, individu ally, and collectively as a nation. Life is uot easy, and least of all is it easy for either the man or the na'ion that aspires to do great deeds. In ! lie century opening the play of the inlin- itelv far reaching forces and tenden cies which go to make up our six-ial system bids fair to Ik- even tleiir in its activity than in the century which nas l'lo,ied. If during this Dun tury the men of high and hue moral sense show themselves weaklings: it tho ir t,ui - . " V7V . , . 1 i' irhinh clifi nL' I i i i . 1 . I . . i i i . ' tt'iilii contact with the raw facts of actual life: if they dare uot go down into the ' hurly burly where the meu of might contend for the mastery; if they stand j aside from the pressure and conflict : I then as surely as the sun rises and j j ts all of our great material progn ss. all the multiplication of the physical agencies which tend for our comloi t aud enjoyment, will go for naught and our civilization will welcome a brutal sham and mockery. If we are to do as I believe we shall and will do. if we are to advance iu broad hi I- manity, in kindliness, iu the spirit of brotherhood, exactly as we advance iu our conquest over the hidden forces of nature, it must lie by developing strength in virtue aud vinue in strengtn. by breeding and training men who shall lie both good and strong, both gentle and valiant men who scorn wrongdoing, and who at the same time have both the courage and the strength to strive mightily for the right. Wesley said he did not intend to leave all the good tunes to the ser vice of the devil. He accomplished so much for mankind aaaanae he also refused to leave the stronger, manlier ! qualities to be availed of only in the I interest of evil.

Forty Th.iisand Dollars a Year Es timated as the Minimum Fees of the Office Annually. The daily (wipers of Phenix in re porting the legislative proceedings au ouueed a dual report from the commit - tee on Cowan's bill to divert the fees of I he territorial secretary's office for ai t ides of incorporation into the ter- ritorial treasury. The majority report was published in full, and it was highly complimentary to the secretary i , . . . , , . telling how royally they had been re- ceived by hini and what a fine court eous gentleman be was, winding up , with the recomiueudat ion that he be 1 permitted to keep his rake off of thousands upon thousands of dollars HD(l let the tax payers pungle as usual to keep the territorial government moving. ; Beyond a mere mention of the fact that a minority report was submitted uo mention was made of what it con- taiued. and it remained for the Satur day Review, the only paper miblished in Phenix. which stands up for the taxpayers, and which by the way is reported u. ne in, subject oi a ooycou irom the secretary, by the minority of t be committee. The minority report was signed by Williams and Roemei, and is reported by the Review as fol lows: "In compliance with Pur. 'JOt.".. isec. 48 i of the revised Statutes of Arizona. im.il. the secretary of Arizona, should keep Em both and should enter thereiu all fees charged for all ser vices rendered. To our request for j God Reformation does not neces said fee books, we were .net with a re- , jiv. The source of reeutauce is in tusal irom the assistaut secretary of the territory, who was acting under instructions received ftom the secre- fary. and the statement that the fee book.- for periods ast were not kept in the offiee. but destroyed. We then a-ked far the Eea book being kept of tees now comui iu aud upon exam- illation ttiereot. and upon examination of the copies of the letters that the: secretary of Arizona has written, we tiud the fees that the secretary of Ari zona colh-cted during twenty five days of the month of January, 11)03, amounted to more than three thou- si.nd dollar.-, and that during the present month. February, he has al ready collect' 1 in fees, for eighteen days, more "tan lifteeu. thousand dol lars. Tlie.-e amounts do not cover the sums mat ine secretary nas received : for his services as ageut for corpora- , tions or for the publication of articles . of incorporation, riling and recording appointments of agents and filing j am.ia its oi pumicaiion. i "Taking twenty five days of the mouth of January, 1908. aud the fetal eighteen days of February. tMK, as an index of the amount of fees coming into the office, em would estimate that (he secretary of Arizona is collecting in fee-alone, at least forty thousand dollars a year. This sum does not include the n ml he collects for iii:eiit services which would amonnt to -everal thousand dollars more. At this point the. Rowe. the Stoddard leader of the house, objected to the further reading of the report." ALASKA'S TREASURES Discovery of Another Rich Copper District Reported Located on Lake Lakina.

Propsec-J tor of recent date says: The Coiustock group of eight claims re.eniiy locaieo on t ne lakina. a tributary of the Chittyna. is probably one on the most important locations ever made in Alaska. The locators went into the Chittyna country late last fall to prospect, if possible; but with uo previous kuowl- edge of the country. Arriving there they made it a point to evade lhe b. at.-n trail-, aud search for new fields. At the Lakina they found nuggets of nat ive copper, which they traced up -tre:it until t hev ..n-iv.,.1 tit 1 about four mile- above wh,.t is U..o... ! the S.hradel trail. Here thev turned from the creek into the hills and very soon came lit on . , the lead, which was exposed iu many peaoaa. They spent oonaMerahle time in uncovering it in a number of places and fouud its trend to be slightly northeast and southwest. At one point on tin- lead there occurred at -ome time a slide or break off which now slums a vast cr-s- section of the lead and copp.-r glistening all through it. As far as examined it shows the pure native coper. with just enough rock to allow of mining in .lie usual , way. i tie claims are located four long and two wide. and over the wh !e an- found ledge- averaging from eight ,w,-n "'ne an.! wit n clearly .1. fined walls.

A number of others will go in at the same time so there is a possibility of other locations leiug made on the lead this coming seasons. Among the Churches. Rev. B. B. Taft, at the Baptist church, preached at 7 :30 Sunday eve ning on the subject of Repentance, "God commaudeth all men every where to repent." Acts 17::k. Rependance is one of the fundamen tal teachings in God's word, yet I fear it la misunderstood by mauy. At any rate it does not receive the emphasis eight hour bill was talked about and from a businc-.- t rip and v.sit to his that it ought to receive. The great j discussed and Anally it was amended 0iu home in Athens. Ohio. Mr. Par theme of John the Baptist was, "Re-j by striking out sdbtiou two relating her is operating some of the most oeut. for the kingdom of heaven is at I w , hand Christ began his ministry with the same tne-suge.

A man may be greatly dis- tressed because of sin, and only plunge the deeper into sin. Repent- auce is not remorse. Judas went out old h.-i I himself but he 'did not repent.

There is an intellectual element a recognition of sin as involving per sonal guilt and helplessness.

There are some who count themselves as pretty good sort of people, and they are as the world looks at them: but when the liglii of ''od shines on their seltish-n.'s-. their pride, their motives and their thoughts, the mark of sin is seen iu everyone.

Eight Hour Bill Amended in Council and Returned to the House For Approval. There was something doing in the legislature on b riday, and all records hot from the mold. The liar repro of the session up to date were broken, j sented seven days' run from the mill It was a day of oratory in the council J in addition to a day" of action. The1 to smelter men tint was passed as B - ! amended, and retimed to the house j for its action. Another source of discussion was a . staienooo resolution wnicu reaus as loimws. the purpose and intent of the congress of the Luitd States is to refuse them admission as a separate state, then t hat the people of Arizona will accept joint statehood with New Mexico on i - the condition that the enabling act ot congress provide tnai me consuiu- tiou of the proposed state shall not ! 1 effective until adopted by a major ity of the votes of each of the present territories vol ing separately, ami iiiiu Arizona shall have equal represeuta- tion with New Mexico in the const it u tioual convention. 1 1 m . i i 1 .1 ie il lur.uer reso,., x uat tue clerk of the council tie instructed to send a copy of this telegram by wire to the Hon. Marcus A. Smith at Wash ington. President Ives made a speech in favor of the resolution and Kihley opposed it. It was passed by a strict liarty vote. The Republican says that Judge Kibliey was warmly congratulated by T. G. Norris and C. M. Shannon, on the conclusionof his speech. Both of tin in are credited with political as pirations which they see vanishing in the future should the one state propo sition be accepted. The resolution after its adoption was sent to the house, but the ntem- - ware timorous of it and deferred action. As au adjournment was taken until Mouday. it will give them an opportunity to consult their constitu ents. It develojied after the council had lussed the resolution that a telegram had been received from Mark Smith on the subject in which he warned the members of the legislature that this compromise afforded the only hope I for statehood. Cowan's bill in accordance with a plank iu the democratic platform, providing for the fees received from ! articles of incorporation, being di verted to the territorial treasury was reported from the committee there be ing a minority report on it. Secretary Stoddard evidently hypnotized the majority of the committee which re I.rted as follows : "Your committee on territorial affairs beg leave to report that they have examined H. B. No. 14. aud that your committee was extended every possible courtesy by the secretary of I the territory, and that all of the I books, records aud paers of his office I including his letter books, were ex- j hibited to the committee for inspec-1 tiou, and that the secretary aud his I a.-si.-taut iu every possible manner facilitated our labors by giving us access to his offlcee and all the rec ords therein at all times, and we re spectfully recommend that H. B. No. 1 1 do not pass. " It was signed by F. S.lugalls. M. Lamout and L. R. Barrows. The mill- oiity report favored the the bill. After some debate a motion pre vailed for a select committee, the speaker to le chairman, to again in vestigate the secretary's office. There upon the chair apix.iuted Mr. Shaker. Cowan. O'Conuell. St. Charles aud Williams, and there the matter rests for the present. The Democrat says that there is a growing sentiment among the democrat? of the house that somelirwlv is trvinir to make a catsiiaw I ' of them and there promises to be a warm time when the matter reap-1 pea I s. A bill was passed ill the house changing the official name of tbe in sane asylum, the change being "Asy lum for the Insane."

MINING INTELLIGENCE. An ore body has lieen struck and blocked out in the Hoggs' mine to the extent of twenty by forty feet and eight feet wide which goes one and nine tenths ounces iu gold, or nearly MO per ton. from four to ten er ceut in OOpnar and from two to thirteen ounces in silver. E. D. Treadwell. who is sueriuteiident of the property, is naturally ipiite elated over the strike. Mr. Treadwell says that the Hacklerry mine is also showing up large bodies of Hue ore, while the Iron Queen is keeping up its reputation. A rich body of ore has been en countered in the main shaft of the , Buuker hill mine at the depth of ninety-live feet. The ore body is !TtZkvf the crosscut at ; thirty-three inches i is high grade ore. Th ninety feet shows a twenty-seven foot ; vein from wall to wall.

The notes; were not due at the time and there wa- not enough cash available Jin the proir tund to y the notes with- out taking about ftJOOO from the fund provided for paying the incidental aud running expenses of the city, The banks then promised that if this money could be borrowed from the fund for paying incidental expense and applied on paying the notes that tbey would immediately re-loan the eity HfeM each on new notes signed by the new mayor aud incoming council, wneu tne above tund could be reim- hursed. After this explanation the mayor signed the minutes, but still maintained that he did not believe the banks would make this new loan. Councilman Mulvenon then offered a tyiewritten resolution instructing and dir-ctiug the mayor and city clerk to execute two notes of $2000 each. one to the Prescott National Bank i and one to the Bank of Arizona, the' ?10tM so obtained to reimburse the general fund from which the M000 1 had leen borrowed, so the salaries of ! the city employes and other running expenses could he met. This resolu tion was unanimously adopted, ami the bills against the city will now be paid. Attorney P. W.

Hio which he claimed as damages to his proiterty on account of the sew- I er dump being on his premises. He explained that the sewer emptied within 300 feet of his residence and that this fact made it impossible for him to live with his family at his home. He further notified the coun cil that he would give them till May 1. 1003, to pay the above damages and if at that time the matter had uot been adjusted be would demaud the further sum of $1000 damages each month until paid aud the sum of $1000 attoruey's fees. At this stage of the proceedings Mayor Burke took up the matter of his apiK.iutmeuts which the council bad refused to confirm at the last meeting. He stated that he realized that there should be harmony exist ing between the council aud the mayor iu order to transact the business of tin- council to the lst interests of the taxpayers. This condition he said j he sincerely wished for. He theu in formed the members of the council that he would withdraw the uomiua- tion of T. G. Norris for city attorney and place iii nomination for the place E. E. Ellinwood. There was some ob- j. .-tions to this nomination aud no action was taken iu the matter of con- tinning the nomiuatiou. This action . had evidently lieen anticipated as the mayor had a private clerk ready and instructed him to address a communi cation to Attorney T. li. Norris as follows : "Hon. T. ti. Norris: I have the i department, which i-nearly two miles honor to respectfully inform you that beyond where it now empties. I have this day. as mayor of the city On motion thi- matter was referred ol Prescott. Arizona, appointed you as to the limine.- committee with iustrnc eity attorney.

The clty treasurer reported il3..48 ou hand. The city auditor reported having collected the sum of from tines. during the mouth of February, The report of the city a or aud tax collector showed unpaid water bills for 1H01 to the amount to J $157.77 ; for 1!2, -lliTr., while no wa- ter bills h id been collected for the mouths of January and February of this year, leaving the city from thi nearly 85O0O due urce. He was instructed to collect these bills at once and to shut off water to cousiim ers who did uot settle as soon as their ; bills were presented. The report of the city eugiueer was quite exhaustive and contained some: very important if not pleasant, infor- mat ion. He reported the pipe line' between Prescott aud Del Rio iu very bad coudition for about eight miles aud said it was necessary to keep men at work along the line continually re- I pairing the line where the lead joints were blowing out every day. The res- ervoir in the city is also in a deplor- 1 able conditiou. it Iteing impossible to j keep more than about nine feet of wa ter in it when there should I sixteen feet. This was on account of leakage. His report brought out a lengthy! discussion on the water works prob- ( lem. Mr. Mulvenon. who had lieeii the chairman of the water committee in the old council aud who is un doubtedly the best posted man on the! water works coudition iu Ih-escott. I gave the new council some very val-1 uable pointers ou tbe situation. Hei said in his opinion it would he ueces- the line could lie relaid for the di tauce of about five miles where it is in such bad condition in about ten days time. But this would cost -e - eral thousand dollars, itie re.-ervoir would also have to be repaired and ! enlarged, and it was his experience that this would cost several more thousands and then could not be made to give good satisfaction and he recommended that m-tead of more money being spent trying to repair and enlarge tbe old reservoir that a million and a half gallou steel tauk be put in. which would stop the repair business for many years to come. The proposed tank would cost $10.ut0 to $15,000. Another thing, he under stood it was the intent iou of the gov- : eminent to statiou at least three com panies at Whipple iu tbe near future which would increase the consump- ' tiou of water at the xst to 100.U1; gallons per day which together with the rapid growth of the city would soon demand about U.tH gallons of water per day. The present .- tpacity for funrisbiug water is short of ."pUi.ihhi gallons so it was absolutely necessary to increase the capacity of the present plaut. He suggested that au auxil iary plant he put in near Smith's lane. This would reduce the pressure at the Del Rio plant so that the en- gine could lie speeded up to meet the required ueeds. and the auxiliary plant could pump the water into the city reservoir. These needs, he .le clare-l were not fancies but faced the city in fearful reality aud must be met. The matter of calling aanaaW election for the issuance of bonds to meet these needs w is discussed an t Mr Mulvenon was asked what amount would lie needed. He replied that it would take every dollar of K0,000 aud possibly more to put the water system in a place where it would meet all de mands of the city for years to come and also to extend the sewer out let to the distance required by the war for a special bond election, and to have this report ready to submit to the council at 3 o'clock this after noon. After granting H. B. Norris the privilege of running a lunch wagon on the streets between the hours of t o'clock p. m. and 6 o'clock a. m. , the council adjourned till 3 p.m. today. Public Records.
