' Since the Aitiencan consula withdrew from Cuba and the steamship Hulm stopped sending their vessels to Havana, prices of provision in that city have rroretiian doubled. If the starvation policy mutt continue, it has been re solved that the Spaniards shall have a tsme of their own me lir.ine. It is n curious fact that tlio rcvolu ticnary war, tho Jlexican war and the civil war began in the tnonlh of April, while tho same may be paid of the war jH- lam 1 1 It !( l.-lli-l-J, II wo may consider as the A beginning of hostilities the HO-days' em bargo placed April 4, 1812, upon all ves wla in tho ports of tho United States. Kow that it appears we aro in for a war with Spain, wo glance at the calendar and find ourselves in April again, with ten days to ipare before the month will be gone. If this is not a coincidence, what ia it? Tub Kogales Vldetto contiins an ar ticle in its last iysuo concerning a cer tain comumnicfition received from this city in which ono who signs himself "J. II. M.", writes to Captain Ekey for a certificate of membership in the Nogales militia so that he cjiiII exhibit it to the xoad and pull tax collectors and thus avoid paying thosq taxes. We were not of tho opinion that Disbeo contained any suoh individual as tint, and if it does we are glad to.kno.y that this little schemo, whereby he might, save a few petty dollars under the garb of patriot ism, did not work. The final success of tho Holland sub- maiine boat ought to go far toward rev- "- olutionUing naval warfare.

If it can dive under ." .water at will, stay thero like a fish and . -.. find its way about, it would seem a.most m if war on the seas were practical1' ver.

A mckdkk of mate lfgiclatures have indorsed tho proposed amendment tit the federal constitution providing for tho election of United Slates senatois by popular vote, and in timo the amendment is sine to ho made.

SOUTH BISBEE COMPANY. An Interesting Article on Their Val tiable Claims and Outlook. On February 10, 1898, the South Dis Biebee Copper Mining and Townsitc Improvement company issued a pros pectus in which they advertised that they would offer a limited number of i-haies at fifteen cents per share. On March 14, 1898, owingto the fact that the first set its of this stock, namely, 200,000 shares, had been sold, 50.000 Laving been pur -based by tho miners and residents of Hisbec, where the prop erties of the company are located, and a large poi lion ia California. The, presi dent of the company, vho Had gone east on busincFs for the company, on learning these fact?, telegraphed to sus pend all further sales at fifteen cents per share. The miners and residents at Bisbee, who purchased shares in t(,e coin pan v, wero familiar with tlie min eral formation of the claims of the Cop per Queen company, many of them having been woi king for that company for the past fifteen years, and some of them longer, and weie fully satisfied by the opening of the shaft on the proper ties adjacent to the properties of the Copper Queen, and by the mineral formation of the South Bisbee compa ny's properties, that the latter were tho same as those of the Copper Queen, and would be equally as productive. Fiom the fact of the purchase of this large number of sharos in this company by the minerr in Bisbee they are war ranted in believing that they have the very best indications of a lare and val uable mining property, and consider it the best recommendation to purchasers of stock and a guarantee of the future prospects of their enterprise. About the time of the issuance of their prospectus they let the contract and commenced sinking a doublocom partment shaft on one of their claims, the formation and indications of which wero precisely the same fo- the depth attained as two of thu'best known shafts ol the Copper Queen. In tho mean time, in addition'to their other proper ties, the company puicbased from Gen. Kichard Coulter, of Pennsylvania, the eleven patented- claims kiVow if ut the Coulter (or Campbell) group, immedi ately adjoining the property of the Cop per Queen and the Maui ice Detin group, the latter already belonging to tho com pany, thus forming one continuous chain of their properties with the prop erties of the Copper Queen company. Immediately upon the purchase of the above claims tho company let an other contract and commenced to sink auoteTituuble-compartmeut shaft upon one of the. above named eleven claims and within a shore distance of the famous Black Jack mine belonging to the Copper Queen company, from which the i ichest ore of that company had been produced. On shaft No. 2 the compauv aie now woiking two shifts ot men night and day, and they are fcath-fied from intoi matiou leceived fiom mineis who are hinking their shaft, and who have worked at binking the shafts of tho Cop per Queen company, and also from indi cations and the miueril lormation as they proceed with their work, that when l lies hhall have i cached the depth of 2E0 or t00 feet they will be in the same bed of oie thai has made thu mines of the Copper Queen company so famous. They do not rely upon assays thowing tho value of their pioperty. Test assays may boo-M stock, but they will not make penuarieut mines. It is the min cud formation of the ground ot their claims, and tho ore that is theie depos ited, that wilrtell, and they are woik ing for smelter lesults. In (several of their claimp, however, at a depth of be tween fifty and seventy feet, they louud large bodies of lead and silver oie. the lead being very essential for smelling purposes, and an assay made by one of the most teliable and practilal mining and smelter refiners of California of a sample of their oies taken fionvonuof tl.eir claims dcniom-tiatcd its value in lead and silver. A copy of the assay is heie given: MOKOAN & CO.. ASSAYEKS, SMELTKRS mill 1 eiincrs.

Inquiries having been made by stock- holders as to their object as to'townsito company, and as to whether they in tended to enter into real estate enter prises, it is learned that their purpose is to develop the largo copper deposits which they know exist in their proper ties, and that as a consequonce thereof, that in tho near future they will have to make provision for thoaa who will be emp'oyed in their company, and their families, and "as a portion of their piop erty ia suitable for building purposes, they piopose to lay out and plat such portion for the use of such employes and their families and those desirous of there engaging in business, as also those persons who are seeking to enjoy the salubrious climate of that dry region at that altitude. This explains the ad dition to tho company's namooFfown site Improvement Company. FINANCES. The treasury stock donated to the company, whiih they aro now felling, is, under the laws of Arizona, forever non-asses-sable, and "the private prop erty of the stockholders of this corpora- : tion is exempt from liability for its cor porate debts," as provided in Articles 111 and VI II of the incorporation. At a meeting of the directors of tho company held the 28th day of March, 1898, it was decided to issue a series of 100,003 shares of treasury stock at 20 cents per share. No moro tock will be issued after that series until the pro ceeds of that issue and that of the first are exhausted in developing the prop erty of the company. Those who are desitous of growing up wLh the com pany and wish to subscribe to any pir tion of this series, can apply to Mr. T. E. Rowan, treasurer, Los Angeles, Cal., or to any of the directors of the company, or Petet Johnston, Bisbee, Arizona. Mining Review Back Salaries. On the 21st of March, 1895. the legis lature ot this territory pissoJ act No. 51. classifying counties and fixing the com pensation of county officeis. At the time the bill was signed by the governor it is alleged, that it contained a clause "to take effect January 1,1897." It is also alleged that this clause was omit ted in the enrolling and engrossing of tlie act. It is a fact, however, that the c!mf-ie wasln homo tay omitted and llie act took effect immediately, and in this manner county officers who had been elected previous to the passage of the act were made to feel the weight ot a retroactive statute which impaired the obligation of contract. To remedy this wrong the nineteenth legislature passed act No. 51, to rein state the salaries of Bitch officials for the -.cars 1895-0 as were affected by the act "of March 21.1895. Act No. 5-1 re lated the wrong inflicted by the former act and the manner of its passage, then provided for demand, audit and pay ment of the amoun-s due tboso county officers. This act was made to take effect from its passage. It wa? vetoed by the governor, and bv a two-thuds vote of each house became a law on March 18. 1897. Some of the counties paid oor the amounts found to be due without mur muring. Other counties have refused to honor the demands made upon ihem and the contentions shave been oanied into the courts.
