CLIFTON, ARIZONA. NEWS OF THE TERRITORY. Hon. John C. Hcrndon died at his home in Prescott last week. He was one of the most prominent lawyers in Arizona, and also a leading- demo cratic polltican. He had lived in Arizona for more than twenty years, and was one of her most loyal and respected citizens. The influx of settlers into Luna county, New Mexico, seems to have berun in earnest. Most all the land in the Mimbres valley east of Dem-ing- has been filed on and many of the settlers are now lecating homesteads south and west of town. During the month of April 2H0 acres of land were filed upon, all within five miles of Deming. - All machinery for the Chloride oil smelter has arrived at that place and is being- hauled out to the Pinkham mine, where it is being fast -assem- bled under the direction of Dr. Hunter.. It is expected that the plant will be ready to blow in by the first of June The operation of this plant will be watched with a great deal of interest by the mine owners of this district, as there are many mines bearing ore of the character of the Pinkham that can be profit ably handled if this plant is" success ful. Kingman Miner. There is one thing in connection with the approaching fall election which should not be overlooked by the board of supervisors, and that is the necessity for the early register ing of voters, so that none will be deprived of the privilege of voting in the primary elections, which must, this year, be held under the primary election law enacted by the last legislature.. A man may register up to- within twenty days before the election, but under the law his name must be on the great register before he can vote at the primary election, which will be held probably ninety days before the election. 'The appearance at Naco of a Southern Pacific grading outfit is quite sufficient to cause a palpitating movement of that town. It is be lieved to mean that the Southern Pacific has at last decided to connect with the Cananea railroad at Naco in the near future. Whether the Southern Pacific connects with the Cananea railroad from Pearce or from Fairbank now seems to be the conundrum interesting the Nacoites This paper predicts that the South ern Pacific, - when it builds the line to connect with its Cananea branch, will start at Pearce and come by war of Douglas. Building this line is the best railroad proposition on the Ari zona map today. International American. . The Gila Valley, Globe & Northern Railroad company is now working " more than 700 men reconstructing its line between Fort Thomas and San Carlos and with the aid of a 70-ton steam shovel, received a few days ago from New Orleans, should make rapid progress, although there is considerable heavy work yet to be done. The new construction is of a substantial character. Ballast decked bridges and cement culverts are being put in and 75-pound steel rails laid. Shattuck & Desmond's grading outfit has moved from Solo mon ville to mile pole 99, to begin work on the reconstruction of the line from San Carlos north. The roadbed will be changed to higher ground to insure safety from floods. The Calumet & Arizona smelter is running with its usual regularity, t is not the largest smelter in Douglas, but the output is all that could be de desired or expected from the plant. It will soon increase its output. A new furnace has been completed, and it would have been put in operation before now had not the power plant at tne smelter been drawn upon re cently for two boilers required at the mines. As soon as new boilers can be installed the new furnace will be started. The production of the C. & A. has not been given out for April, but it is known that it amounted to about what it did in March. There has been no recent change in the output, but more ore is being treated in the fwnaces. The lower grades of ore are now being given the prefer ence at the reduction works, and it is understood that this is the rule of all the reduction plants in the terri tory. Parties who desire a line, large wall map of United States and the world, can secure it by paying for the' Era one year in advance. Sciatica Cored After Twenty Years of Torture. For more than twenty years Mr J. B. Massey, of 3322 Clinton St., Minneapolis, Minn, was tortured by sciatica. The pain and suffering which he endured during this time is beyond comprehension. Nothing gave him any permanent relief until he used Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One application of that linament relieved the pain and made sleep and rest possible, and less than one bottle has effected a permanent cure. If troubed with sciatica or rheumatism why not try a 25 cent bottle of Pain Balm and see for yourself how quickly it relieves the pain. For sale bv all dealers in medicine.

Butte Copper Output The output of copper from the Butte mines during April aggregated 29,500,000 pounds, the quantity being divided as follows: Washoe plant, 18,000,000; Red Metal, 3,000,000; Bos ton & Montana in Great Falls, 7,500, 000; Clark's Reduction, 1,000,000. North Butte's output is figured with that of the Washoe; in fact, the pro duction of the latter takes in all of the companies and individuals ship ping to that plant. It receives more than 100 tons daily from the Raven. 100 from the Pittsburg, 50 from the East Butte, between 200 and 300 from the Clark mines, 35 from the Bertha mine and about 200 from other sources other than the Anaconda, Washoe, Parrot, Trenton and Butte & Boston companies of the Amalga mated and the production of the North; Butte. May will be a record breaker if nothing hnpiims. A CRY FROM THE DETITUTE BABIES. Mrs. Governor Kibbey is in Receipt of Appeal From San Francisco. Notwithstanding the fact that millions have been provided for the earthquake sufferers in California it is becoming more evident every day that much more will be needed. Some few days since Mrs. Governor Kibbey received a telegram from the secretary of the National Mothers' and Daughters San Francisco Or phans' Relief Fund committee ask ing her to co-operate with it in re lieving the distress prevailing among the babies of the coast city. Mrs. Kibbey immediately sent an affirmative answer and at "once started on the work of providing the little mites with the necessities of life. A depot has been established I at the office of Dr. Thomas, 12 West Adams street, where donations of money and all else that will tend to the comfort of the babies may be left. Phoenix has done nobly in the work of relief, but it should not be stopped so long- as the little inno cents of the coast city are in want. Money, food, clothing and whatever else that may be useful are re quested. It is also the intertion of the San Francisco committee to use a part of the money that may be secured in the employment of com petent nurses of which the destitute mothers and babies are in great need. Enterprise. Grand Lodge Next Year Kingman. - Goes to Kingman was chosen as the loca tion lor the grand lodge of Knights of Pythias in 1907. There were no other candidates for the next grand lodge, but there was a strong senti ment in favor of holding the next session in Tucson on account of its more central location, but when it came to a vote Kingman was unani mously chosen. Following the selection of the grand lodge location, the grand offi cers who were elected were installed, Past Grand Chancellor Cox acting as installing officer. The election of grand lodge officers resulted in the choosing of John H. Langston, of Phoenix, as the grand chancellor. He succeeds Joseph H. Cox in that office. The following are the officers: Grand chancellor, J. H. Langston, Phoenix. Grand vice-chancellor, Dr. J. E. Storey, Morenci. Grand prelate, E. S. Jones, Con gress, Grand keeper of records and seals, John D. Loper, Mesa, re-elected." Grand master of exchequer, Jacob Salzman, Williams. Grand master at arms, John E. Newbury, Cananea. Grand inner guard, H. P. Merrill, Jerome. Grand outer guard, R. H. Olsen, Globe. Grand trustees, B. Hattich, Tomb- tone; M. Lamont, Tucson; Charles M. Smith, Yuma. The Grand Temple of Rathbone Sisters elected officers: Past grand chief, Amelia Rosen- stern, Tucson. Grand chief, Ida Moore, Phoenix. Grand manager, A. Leroy, Douglas. Grand mistress of records and cor respondence, .Mary McMullen, Solo- monville. Grand mistress of finance, Nannie Wilson, Solomonyille. Grand protector, Emma Roscoe, Morenci. Grand outer guard, Fellie Olney, trustees, Mesdames Cum- Safford. Grand mings, Thalkemine and Olney. That the blowing in of the Hum boldt smelter has awakened the min ing industry in northern Arizona, perhaps beyond the comprehension of some old time residents, is appar ent in almost every inininir district in Yavapai county, from the number of prospects that are being devel oped and the old time producers of early days upon which work is being resumed, says the Journal-Miner. Even in isolated sections a consider able distance from railroad com munication a new spirit of progress is in evidence backed by confidence and push which invariably leads to success. A car load of courier has been shipped from the new plant to the New Jersey, refineries and the management anticipates that within very short time shipments will be of daily occurrence. Stomach Trouble. Mrs. Sue Martin, an old and hip-hlv respected resident of Faisonia, Miss., was sick with stomach trouble for more than six months. Chamber lain's Stomach . and Liver Tablets cured her. She says: "1 can now eat anything I want and am the proudest woman in the world to find such a good medicine."

Greene is inter ested at present are in Chihuahua There the Greene Gold-Silver com pany has four mills in operation, and Col. Greene stated that work would be commenced in a short time on five additional plants. This company ( has mineral concessions covering 4,000 square miles in Chihuahua. In addition to the mines in Chi huahun, Col. Greene is at the head of the Sierra Madre Land .,4 Lumber company, which ownj thousands of acres of heavily timbSrecflands. "At the present time we are turn ing out about 250,000 feet of lumber per day, but we expect to increase the output to 500,000 feet later," re marked Col. Greene. "When we have the transportation facilities for handling a half million feet of lum ber daily we shall market some of the timber in New York. The Chi huahua lumber is fully the equal of the Oregon and the Washington timber." At the present time fifty-one miles of railroad are being constructed by the Greene people into the heart of the mining and lumber district. The road is known, as the Rio Grande, Sierra Madre and Pacific, and con nects with the Chihuahua and Pacific. The mining, lumber and railroad interests in which the Greene people are interested represent a capitaliza tion of $45,000,000. In addition to building a railroad, Col. Greene has constructed a wagon road in the Jesus Maria district from Tomosachio to Minaca. This road is without a doubt one of the finest mountain roads in existence and it is prooaoiy unequalled, in its con struction great obstacles were over come and now that it is completed automobiles can be run over it at a good speed.. The road is 100 miles long and cost $240,000. Speaking generally of the various companies in which he is interested, Col. Greene said: "I am pushing the work of development along all lines, not only with the Greene Gold-Silver company, but with the other enter prises with which I am connected." Col. Greene recently purchased ex tensive coal lands in the Pilares field in Sonora. "Ruf." purchase in cludes 50,000 acres. These coal fields will soon be reached by a branch of the Southern Pacific in Sonora, and this will enable Col. Greene to secure high-class coal and natural coke for his smelter at Guaymas. Tucson Citizen. Kelvin a Center of Activity. Brisk Mining A correspondent ot the Florence Blade, writing from Kelvin, says: "A tide of prosperity and progress is certainly flowing this way. A num ber of eastern capitalists represent ing big syndicates have representa tives here arranging for the consoli dation of several properties and prospects. Quiet and mysterious ex perts and mining men who do not let their left hand know what their right hand doeth are here,. and out in hills in every direction. And while there may not be an earth quake here, yet all signs point out that there will be something doing in Kelvin soon. The diamond drill crowd arrived last week for extensive work at the Ray mines. Several big teams came in from Mesa to haul ore to the rail road, where many cars are to be loaded for shipment to the Humboldt smelter. Messrs. Elder "and Mellin are also getting several carloads of ore ready for shipment. The Ray Copper company have re paired their telephone system from here to the Ray mines, and Tillman and Mclntyre, practical mine ex perts, have for months been sampling some of the great ore bodies known to exist in the Ray company's very extensive and valuable property, which is being brought to the front through the very efficient manage ment of J. M. Gordon, who has suc ceeded in bringing order out of chaos and confusion. Senate and House Reach Agreement on Statehood. At the next meeting of the state hood conference, to be held at the call of Senator Beveridge, chairman of the senate committee on terri tories, a report upon statehood for Arizona and New Mexico will be formulated. The senate amendments to the bill were practically disposed of at last week's sessiun pi the conference. It is stated that an agreement had been adopted whereby the Koraker amendment in a- modified form will prevail. " As modified, the adoption of the amendment will give Arizona and New Mexico statehood, if the people of the two territories by vote at the general election agree to having those territories become out state. Coal Fields Examined by Prof. Wm. P. Blake. Prof. Wm. P. Blake has returned from an examination of some coal mines in the Deer Creek coal field. The examination was made for Col. George R. Chittenden of the Chittenden Copper camp in the Sad dle mountains. Prof. Blake says there is a ooil quality of coal which makes most ex- cellent fuel for boilers and gas and it cokes well. There is a good solid three-loot vein, which is being taken out for the Chittenden reduction plant located about ten miles dis tant, and to which a good road is be ing constructed. The Gila River railway will pass within eight miles of this coal carni, which makes it of easy access for fuel purposes. - ti nuui 1 i ' i .i i . - r j. uc Ksiii Ltciiucu, ur !)tuuic -violin- tain company, is employing 300 men. I There is being made a fine grade of matte, which is being sent to the. Humboldt smelter. The mines of the company and the district generally are full of promise. Prof. Blake says that the region is going to be, in fact is now, a most important mining center. Three parties have been in Benson within the past sixty days investí gating the smelter, and it is proba ble that one or the order of the three parties will decide to. take the smel ter over and operate it. All the men who have visited the proposition have looked very thoroughly into the matter and have gone away with the impression that it is favorable. Doan Merrill, cashier of the Bank of Benson, who is in charge of the af fairs of the Southwestern Smelting and Refining company in Benson, be lieves that the smelter will be started within the next six months at the very most, placing this" time as a conservative estimate. The plant of the Southwestern Smelting and Refining company is kept in good shape at all times, so that in case some of the eastern parties who are figuring on the proposition decide to take it over and operate it, it will be able to begin operations with the minimum of delay. Prospector. We are informed that Weast & Clark have made a very important strike of sulphide ore on some new locations on Middle Goodwin creek, about six miles cast of Aravaipa postoffice. The ledge is 'said to have an average width of eight feet and to have been prospected for over 1500 feet along its strike. Eighteen inches of sulphide ore has been opened at several places which runs 2( per cent, copper, and the average of the whole lead is said to be 15 per cent, or better. Our informant states that it is the biggest thing in copper that he ever saw. Frank Weast, one of the locators, ha3 re signed his position as superintendent of the Stanley Butte 'mines and will turn his attention to the develop ment of the big discovery. Belt. Sore Nipples.
