MCGRATII, PROP THE GBEAT OOPPEE SYNDICATE. Assurances That It Is All Right The New Metal Hank In London. From the New York Hun, February 3rd. The statement by cable from London that the great French copper svndicnts had refused to buy any more copper has greatly stirred up the copper people in New York. The French syndicate, in effect, contract ed to take the supply of copper in the United States for three years at an aver age price of thirtteU cents a pound. The syndicate was organized eight months ago, and some ot the biggest bankers in Lon don, Paris and Berlin and a few in New York city are said to be concerned in the success of the venture. It will be teen that the contracts between tho mining companies and the syndicate havo yet over two years to run. The production of cop per lait year was approximately 255,000 Ions. All this the syndicate has been com pelled j take. It represents a largely in creased production, which it is declared resulted from tho formation of the syndi cate. Although copper, ut tho time the syndicate was formed, was selling on an average basis ot sixteen cents a pound the mines contracted to sell their copper to the syndicate for thirteen cents a pound. Ac cording to the statement of the mining companies this is a lair profit on copper, and this conclusion is responsible to a irieat extent for the increased product which the syndicate has had to care for. Tho importance of the refusal ol the syn dicate to buy any more coppr is thus clearly seen. It was said that the refusal of the syndicate to buy any more copper was nothing else than an admission that the venture had failed. Copper stocks at home and abroad declined rapidly after the announcement, but have since recov ered. The establishment of a metal bank in London by the syndicate has been va riously commented upon during the week. It is not yet lully organized, and people in the copper trade do not seem clearly to un derstand the prospective functions of the ba n k. A Sun reporter yesterday talked with some of the people in the copper market a'jout the disturbance caused by the al leged refusal of the syndicate to buy cop per, and also as to the necessity for the organization of such a bank posed.' as u pro- lt was the general opinion that the cop per syndicate bad a big load to carry, but the majority opinion was that it bad enough money to pull through, and that the organization of the batik was for the purpose of securing additional financial aid if necessary. Mr. Leonard Lewissohn, of Lewissohn Bros., Air. V. L. Russell, Mr. James St, niton. Mr. Charles Unlit and Mr. II. E. Jacob, (he latter two of the Cal umet & Hecla mine, all agreed that the ndic.itions were that the syndicate had sufficient, funds nt its disposal, and would carry out-its contracts with all producers. It was even said that the organization of the bank was evidence that tho syndicate would renew its contracts with the coui puiiier, though doubtless on the basis of a reduced production and a reduced contract puce. All the copper men spoken to said that the syndicate had stimulated produc tion until it was far in excess of the pres ent consumptive demand. They admitted hat thfre wii Borne (lunger to the culmin ation of the, syndicate's plan and profit trom this fact; but thsy counted a good deal on the organization ofj the bank to obviate this difficulty until the new con tracts could be made with the itipulations tor reduced production at lower prices to the syndicate. lt was said that the bank will have a capital of 820,000,000 and fifteen directors representing the mining companies and the barkers interested in the syndicate. An advisory board will be established, it is said, in New Yock, and efforts to concili ate manufacturers will be made. It was stated that the syndicate had refused to credit ume of the manufacturers who had been accustomed to buying on accommo dation before the syndicate was formed. .Tb.e,sy'ndicate people, or those who spoke for them, said that this has created an an tagonism which should be avoided. All said that the syndicate would not attempt to squeeze anybody and it is difficult to see how they could, as long as the consump tion is much below the production. CSome of the people with whom the syn dicate has contracts at thirteen cents a pound spoke of that as a pretty good price, and they had no doubt that if con tracts were renewed ritn them the syndi cate would insist on lower figures. Others said that a smash ia the syndicate would not surprise them at all. i be big pro duction of copper was the menace, they said, and a good deal of apprehension ex ista in certain circles. Yet for all that, some of the copper people tell of the in creas 'd consumption which is being de veloped almost daily. ' They quote the con -. ption of 27,000.000 pounds in 1870 and - , ,- , it with the 125,000,000 pounds now necessary for consumers in the United StaUi. "The syndicate is in worse snaps to-day than it was six months ago," said one of its representatives. And Mr. Stanton said that at first he thought that the syndicate had undertaken altogether too big a con - tract, but now he felt that it eould carry it through. Mr. Russell said that outside of holdings of the syndicate there were only 200,000 ponnds of ooppcr in this country and that the syndicate wonld undoubtedly liquidate slowly and possibly escape a final loss on the original venture. Others were doubtful if the syndicate escaped with a whole skin, eveu though they were getticj a fair profit on the sales now made. THE APACHES. From the Washington Hatchet, The Apaches are of a low caste, so far as Indians are concerned. They originat ed, beginning perhaps two or three bund red years ago, from the outcasts of other tribes from the Nvajoes, the Moque and the Yumas. In addition to this they have an aduiixture of the blood of the Mexican renegades, whom, of course, they have welcomed into the councils of the tribes on account of superior and ill-directed knowledge of territory to be pillaged. as well as intellectual superiority in gen eral. They will tat what few other Indi ans would astronomically tackle, and are deficient in bravery and magnanimity com pared with other tribes. There are sever al branches of the Apaches. The Mescal- eros derive their name from tho fact that mescal, the plant from which mescal, the well known Mexican intoxicant is made, is one of the chief articles in their dietary. They roust it on flat ctones raised six incheB or so above the earlh, under which a fire is built. Otherwise the plant is boiled, aud in the early stages of its growtn it is said to be tender and succu lent. The other tribes aro the Coyoteros (foxes), which is the largest, the Tontos (fools), who by the way are perhaps the most crafty of the combination, and the Gilas, who are named from their proximity to the Gila river, from tho bank', of which, as old-timers may remember, Barnum in his early career brqught the "wooly horse" which aroused the ire of "Old Bullion" Benton. They were once under one chief, Mangas Coica o w, and as illustrating their conglomeration of blood, it may he men tioned that the lately celebrated Gerónimo was a son of Mangu Colorow by one of his captive Mexican slave -squaws, while Cochise was his son by an Apaehe wife, and Chaco was the son of Cochise by a Mexican slave 'fquaw. Altogether, I do not really think thatithe Indian is quite so white an he is painted by the syinathetic as well as mercenary novelist, nor is be so red as history and some of his enemies make bim. Cancer, I am satisfied that Cancer is hereditary in my family. My father died of it, a sis ter of my mother died of it, and my own sister died of it. My feelings may be im agined, then, when the horrible disease made its nppearance on my side. It whs malignant Cancer, eating inwardly in such a way that it dould not be cut out. nu merous remedies were used for it, but the Cancer grew steadily worse, until it seem ed that I was doomed to follow the others of the family. I took Swift's specific, which, from the first Hay, forced out the poison, and continued its use until I had taken several bottles, when I found myself well. I know that S. S. S. cured me. Mrs. S. M. Idol. Winston. N. C, Nov. 26, 1888. Out of Order. Last year I was badly troubled with blood poison. My whole system was out of order, diseased, and a constant source of suffering, with no appetite and no en joyment of lile. In this condition I pur- hased two bottles of Swift's specific (S. i. S.) of Dr. Scbrodus' drug store, and took by the directions, which made, a com plete cure. No better remedy was ever used for impurities of the blood than S. S. 8.' John Gavin. Dayton, Ohio, Deo. 27, 1888. I had a rising on the inside of my head behind my right ear, which grew so bad that the flesh sloughed off. It was lanced iwelled again and was lanced the sec ond time. I took 8. 8. S. which forced out the poison, the discharge being copi ous. As soon as the poison was eliminat ed the sore began healing, and in a short time was perfectly well. 8. S. S. has cured ma of the dangerous trouble which was thought to be incurable. J. R. Bullock. Greenwood, 8. C, Oct. 23, 1888. Swift's Specific is entirely a vegetable medicine, and is the only medicine which has ever cured blood poison, scrofula, blood humors and kindred diseases, send for our books o.i blood and skin diseases, mailed free. Tub Swift Spkcfic Co. DrawerS, Atlanta, Ga. Citizen: The depot in Tucson was crowded with young trees this morning "The number of trees received here this season is largely in excess of any previous one," said Mr. Grosetta, who has been giv ins the matter close attention. "There has not been much blowing doue but large number of our property owners have ptanted trees this winter, and they will all grow. The people now pretty well understand the best kinds to buy and when to plant them." Mr. Grosetta has put nut on his ranch, three miles from Tucson one thousand tree and vines this 1 season. HEWS NUGGETS. Various Items of News flathored from Oar Kxchnnges and other Souroes. Judge L. Bradford Prince his been ap pointed by Governor Ross as New Mexi co's representative at the centennial celt bration ot the inauguration of Washing ton, which takes place in New York on April 90th. The governor has also com missioned Sol Myer. a well known citizen of Raton, as commissioner from New Mex ico to the Paris exposition. When it was learned in Phenix that the capital removal bill had received the gov ernors signature a salute of fifteen guns was fired. Last week twelve Apaches, one buck and eleven squaws, were sent from the Mt. Vernon Barracks in Alabama to the Mescalero agency in Lincoln county. If the government would only send old Ge rónimo back to Arizona now e ver j body would be satisfied. Regular trains are now running on thr Bisbee road. Silver Belt: We learn that work has been commenced at the Ray copper mine, near Riverside, with a force of ten men, and nnder the superintendency of Mr. Curtis, who was in charge of the property prior to the suspension of work several years ago. It is also stated that the force of miners is to be increased. The Ray is rich in native copper, and at the price pre vailing for that metal, its operation should prove profitable to its owners. Democrat: Last Sunday night at 4 o'clock a. m., the walls of Jose Maria Ben ton's house at Mesilla, suddenly gave way aud the roof with its heavy rafters fell smashingeverything beneath it. Mr. Ben ton and bis family haJ just time to es cape outot the hou.e in their night clothes when the beds on which they had been sleeping were crushed by the weight of the falling beams. Ten inches of superior ice is being har vested by the Santa Fe ice men. St. John Herald: We have always un derstood that special agents of the interi or department were sent to look up fraud ulent land entries, and not fur the pur' pose of harassing and persecuting honest settlers. Judging, however, from the ac tions of the special agent for northern Ar izona, we have been laboring under a mis apprehension. Optic: The grazing and agricultural in tcrests of New Mexici never before prom ised so well as they do at the present time, Good times are surely coming, railroad or uo l'uili'oud. News-Register: It is ruaiored thut one of our saloon firms will sco.i dissolve with the result of providing Gallup with anoth er saloon, making the fourteenth place in town where whiskey is sold, aud yet the saloon men complain of dull times. Capt. Jack Crawford, the "poet scout," who is well known iu the territory, had an exciting experience recently at the Stand ard theater, Cincinnati. Captain Jack is giving theatrical entertainments, and bad n his company an Indian named Running Deer. Iu the play there is a duel scene, the captain and the Indian are principals. Ou the night in question the Indian was drunk and in the duel scene attempted to kill Crawford. It was a bard and terrible tight with knives. According to the p:ay Jack should have taken the knife from the redskin, who is a Comanche. He refused to give it up, and made some vicious lunges. After a desperate struggle the scout got the upper hand and pricked the Indian two or three times in the side, with the threat to kill bim if he made any more hostile demonstrations. After the play the Indian escaped. Citizen: It pleases the Citizen to tel the people of the cities north and south of Albuquerque that this city is now on the sunshiny side of a healthy boom. New Mexican: The plan for Santa Fe's United States Indian school are now en route from Washington, and bids for the construction of the building are again to be culled for. There is every reason to be lieve the government means business this time. lt if. said the Atlantic & Pacific will close the gap by building their line from Sepul pa to Albuquerque during the present sum mer. Stockman: A shooting affray took place at a dance at Brown's ranc'ii in the Huachacas, on Monday last, between Cal Cox, foreman of the Whitbeck cattle com pany, and Lib Wallace, until recently fore man of the Babacomari ranch. Both men were seriously but not fatally wounded, and are now in Tombstone for ourgical treatment. An old feud was the cause of the shooting. The Maxwell grant company paid $11, 619 in taxes in Colfax county for this year. R. M. Forcee resigned the district and supreme clerkship at Santa Fe, being succeeded in offiVe by 3. 3urkhart. Immigrants and n turning voyagers find in Ayer's sarsapurilia a cure for eruptions, boils, pi'nples, eczema, etc., whether re sulting fiom sea-diet and the life ou ship board, or from any other cause. Its value as a tonic and alterative medicine cannot be overestimated. r ffh Dealer IRea-l Estate, X maleo & epeei<jr of ssttlinET people on, Grot eminent Land.
