The Department of Things as They Ought to Be. " (As Seen Through the Editor's asses.) it KELP THE EDITOR. A good editor, first of all, should be a limitless reservoir for receiving advice, yet receive it as the ocean takes its rivers, and still retain his own saline, individual flavor. He should aim to be understood rather than ad mired, and should desire a reputation for sense rather than philosophy. Wisdom is doubtless desirable, but effects its purpose quicker when clothed in the garb of wit. He must be interesting or be content with a small subscription list. He is often unjustly censured for his mistakes. The wonder is that he does not make more of them. On the average paper he must deal with all kinds of subjects, give the names, dates, etc. One hour he may be engaged in reporting a religious meeting and the next drawing the picture of a prize fight. He must condense and fill with his items several columns, whether events are transpiring to throw up material for his use or not. From some he must get news without their knowing it, drawing them into conversation and obtaining what he wants in sections. He may labor for hours in chasing down a rumor only to find there is nothing in it. The drift of the foregoing is this: Weekly newspapers differ greatly as to the kind of news they publish, depending entirely upon the lines of thought along which the local sub scribers, who constitute a majority, are thinking and living. The papers of this section are alive with mining news and baseball dope also seems to be devoured with appreciation. What the editor of this paper wants to do is to make the Era read able and appreciated and the only way to find out just what the subscribers want is to come right out and ask them. A paper is a success if the sub scribers read the news from the front to the last page and feel that they've been well repaid. for the time spent, if they say "that's good stuff, wish there was more of it." In order to find out what the most of you would like to see in the Era each week, we ask that every subscriber interested will write a letter tell ing what he likes best. If its mining news say so. Make your letter short. You need not sign your name as every letter will be published. The Era wishes to get in closer touch with its readers. To please its subscribers is its chief effort. But don't let one man think we can print the whole paper to suit his individual taste. The contents of a newspaper are like the contents of a menu in a restaurant. You may not "hanker a'rter" olives or "pate de foi gras" but for that reason you don't go to the head waiter and tell him be serves bum meals. Remember there are, those who like the olives and they are there for some one to enjoy. A newspaper endeavors to please as many as possible but tnere are as many likes and dislikes as there are persons. It all resolves to this; if no one writes to the Era while they are given a chance to express their wishes, then we will leave it to a jury of any twelve men to say that the paper, therefore, must be all that could be de sired, that it pleases everyone and needs no improvements. Don't tell your neighbor what you think could be improved, tell the paper itself. We don't care about your name, just so long as you are a subscriber and are interest ed. "Do it now." EDWARD VII. If the career of King Edward during his later life Is rightly understood in Great Britian, his memory deserves better signs of affection than those which hysterical worshippers of royalty, sensational newspapers and com mercial mourners are so fond of displaying. These are apt to indicate vanity or cupidity rather than grief. Thrust out for exhibition regardless of the human worthiness of their object, they would tend to depreciate the memory of even the best of men. History may reveal Edward VII as de serving only such tributes, but this Is not his reputation now. He appears to have been a king who acutely realized and democratically acquiesced In the changing order. Through the old forms of kingly prerogative he ap pears to have seen the new substance of popular power. And instead of re sisting stubbornly or yielding sullenly, he seems to have co-operated with intelligence and good faith. The memory of a man who has thus risen above his accidents out of a gilded cradle into democratic manhood, out of royalty into democratic statesmanship is something for a nation to cherish; and at the close of such a career, though tears may indeed be shed, and all the more because he has won oyer a whole people to be of his household, expressions of grief springing from nothing nobler than love of princes count more against his memory than for it. Apart from fears that un democratic influences may misdirect the sympathies and activities of his successor, all genuine public sorrow over King Edward's death may well be swallowed up in the invigorating remembrance of his having, except in name, turned his accidental kingship into one of the higher types of twentieth century manhood. China sends for 150 seats to the Jefferies-Johnson dance of the big mitts. Yet there are those who say that China is not progressing and alive to her opportunities. If you haven't been counted turn up your nose at the census man; that is what he's counting and he won't mind it. Roosevelt was so hoarse that he was unable to speak at Stockholm. It's a safe bet that hoarseness will not Interfere with anything he wants to say when he gets back in this neck of the woods. No one succeeds so well as the fellow who makes a specialty of at tending to his own business. Editor and Manager BASE BALL ?' I ftifton Takes two from Morenci. The locals forged to the front in the percentage column by tafeiftg-,' notn games trom Morenci rsst week, and there Is much rtolcfng among the fans in criScüence. The 'féám seems to have struck 'their gait at last and Incldeotially to haye recovered the long lost batting eyes. While there was little hitting in Saturdays game the Mngles came at very opportune times. The old reliable Bobbie Scanlan served up the benders and as in the former games Morenci could do little ttU'h his port side heave. T&e team also played a fast fTS.'&'e behind him. On Setw!t.y the team went up to Merehci with their batting togs on. tt was not until Morenci had a tñVée run lead that the boys tttmhVenced to stir themselves awa Aen they landed all over pOtir fitt'le Merritt and drove htm to 'coyer with the "Y" trailed in the dust. Cummings was hurled Into the breach after a brief period of posing- for the ladies in the stand, but he was pounded just as haVa as his predecessor and only lasted an inning. These were aH 'good natured wallops too with no.ie of the Morenci style of "horseshoe "hits. As a last resort Parks was called in and the boys were beginning to land on him when it was derded to call the game for humanity- afee as the only other pitcher Moretrci trad was pressed Into service as an ttwpire. Abbott wot-fced for 'the locals and had everythiwg deeded. Some un fortunate feoYinders got away from the i-ntteM in the third putting him in a bad hole, but after the locals got their big lead he eased up and most of Morenci's hits were gifts, as the big fellow never exerted himself after the fifth. SATURDAY'S ÚAMÉ. Clifton scored three in the first and though no more runs were secured it was enough to win out. A hit by Newell and a lite to Crittenden fol lowed by singles by Riley and Scanlan did the work. In the fifth Morenci bunched three hits off Scanlan but only made it good for one score. A walk and a hit gave them one more in the sixih. They loomed up bad in the eighth with men on first and third but Bobbie pulled safely across. Clifton A.B. R. H. P.O. A. E. E.

Umpire, Quilling. SUNDAY'S GAME. The game Sunday opened like a whirlwind. A fast double play for each side coupled with the headwork of both pitchers blanked both sides in the first and second. Clifton ran one across in the third on the old scientific game. Ghizoni was safe on Kelley's error, advanced on Williams pretty sacrifice and scored when Newell singled to right. A succession of ugly bounders that got away from the infield followed by two clean hits gave Morenci three in her half and the lead. This seemed to demoralize the locals for a time and Morenci increased the lead with a run in the fourth Jake Wilson's three base slam being responsible. Clifton pulled together and tied things up in the fifth. Ghizoni led off with a pretty double to left. Wil liams fanned. Newell singled to center and Dauber to right scoring Ghizoni. Critt bit tosbort and Newell was caught at the plate. Riley's two cushion drive to left scored Dauber and Critt. Morenci was held safe in her half. The big collection of slams, drives and wallops came in the sixth. Abbott started the rally with a clean single to center. Ghizoni followed with a slam to left and then Williams drove one over the right held fence good for one round trip scoring two ahead of him. Newell and )auber again singled and Critt. was safe on an error filling the corners. Riley fanned but Scanlan cleaned the bags with a two base drive over left. Bill Mason and Abbott walked again fill ing the corners but there was no further scoring. Abbott eased up and let Morenci slip two over on him in their half Jake Wilson again being responsible with a two base hit. Cummings went in to save the day in the seventh. Williams drove the first ball to deep center for three bases and scored on Newell's single. Dauber got a life and Crittenden poked one against the center field fence for three bags scoring Newell and Dauber. Bill Mason hit to right and brought Critt. across. Morenci again squeezed in two. Jim Wilson rapped out a three bagger with one on and scored on the relay home which went astray. Parks pitched the last two innings for Morenci and held Clifton safe though he was touched for two hits. Abbott tightened up in the eighth and ninth and held Morenci down. Clifton A.B. R. II. P O. A.

Umpires, 'cjuilling and Ashley. Hits Inside the Diamond. There was another big shake up in the standing of the Cactus League last week. Clifton's double victory over Mo roeaci pulled the local boyt into sec Ond place and Morenci was shoved to the bottom. Risbee went to the top by defeat ing Cananea twice, while Douglas took two out of three from El Paso and recovered most of the points they lost last week. The race Is still close and promises to remain so, a game either way can still alter the whole standing. The fans were all glad to see Ellis Williams get back to his old batting form. That home run was a peach and he followed with another drive next inning that was just as good. Those long drives Sunday came when they counted. Williams. Riley, Scanlan and Crittenden all drove men in ahead of them. "Timber Line" Abbott started the grand stand going. Newell is batting over .400. Crit tenden, Bill and Earl Mason are go ing over the .300 mark and Ghizoni .277. Wait till you see the new uniforms. Both Merritt and Cummings had a sickly pea green expression after the game. And then Tyler says i's all the bum umpire. HOW THEY STAND, MAY 13 Cactus League. W. L Pet.

From United StAtus Iuvestor. In response to improvement i.i the red metal market, copper shares have had somewhat of an advance the past week. It is at a time like this that the stocks of copper com panies are on the bargain counter, and it is at such times that the stocks of good companies, which have intrin sic value behind them, should be bought and he'd for appreciation. One of the Compinie, in which the purchaser of the si.oi:k is buying into real property and intrinsic value, is the Shannon Copper Co. , which is now selling around $11 per share. At this price, we consider Shannon shares a good purchase for a hold, as intrinsically, the stock is worth al most double that price. Considering the present low price of copper, Shannon is doing remarkably well. The net earnings of the quarter, end ing February 28, were almost $63,000, or close to $30,000 ahead of the previ ous quarter and $40,000 ahead of the correspondió'' quarter a. year ago. As a matter of fact, the property was never in better condition, both in regard to the quantity and quality of its ore reserves and its ability to treat its ore economically. New Ore Reserves. It is not so many years ago that it was said that the Shannon ore re serves would not last for sixty days. How foolish and absurd this state ment was has been shown by the his tory of the company since that time under the Auister management. Only last year, at a point below the Old Tunnel which had hitherto been suppossed to be non-mineral bearing ground, there was developed a vein of ore 80 feet wide and averagings per cent copper, and a streak of ore eight feet wide which assayed as high as 35 per cent copper. Again, the company drifted through 20 feet of ore assaying 15 per cent copper. These discoveries unquestionably in dicate that the cost of prrd,'!cljg.c'p Bef yi e,dri!íUé.bd. Eé.iecuced as de- -.eiopment wort aavances ana new economies are put into practice. For the past five years the mine' output has shown a steady and con- tinous output. The output for the year 1904 was i573io tons of ore: 188(842 tdns for 1905; 210,026 tons for Í906: 211,857 tons for 1907; 281,449 tons for 1908; and 307,271 tons for 190. President Amster states that every thing is rtíndlng álótig smoothly at the Stiánnon, and that the company has made some new freighting ar rangements which will materially reduce the transportation expenses. He states aso that the company has not yet touched the high grade ore bodies at the bottom of the mine, but that work will soon begin on them, when the cost of producing its Cop per will be stiil further reduced. The fact that Mr. Amsle'r is the largest individual stock holder of Shannon only goes to show his faith in this property. On 13 cent copper, Shannon has been earning about $1 per share, or about 10 per cent on its present selling price. With tso'e. bigger, and better ere reserves, therefore, and lower costs, etc., Shannon certainly ought to be worth as much, if not more, than when it sold for 18 last January, or even 24 in 1907. We look upon it as a good purchase for a hold. Subscribers Take Notice. We regret that the Era is late In reaching you this week buy it's the same old story; a gasoline engine on its last wheeze.
