Mr. Adams Is very much In evidence
in phoenix, nd Mr- Arthur is con
spicuous by reason of his absence.
Jhkre is a heavy fall of snow in tho
mountains, which insures an abund
ance of water in the irrigating canals
the entire season.
The United States will pay the
Cuban army $3,000,000 which, with the
$20,000,000 paid Spain for the privilege
of licking the Filipinos into submission,
makes war rather an expensive luxury
for your Uncle Samuel.
Tiik legislature is making a monkey
show of itself. It wrangled three days
over a resolution of congratulation to
Senators Clark and Stewart, and finally
adopted it through unparliamentary
methods. The Republicans claim this
c6nld not have been done had not Mr
Arthur of Pinal been absent without
Tns Tribune Is under obligations to
Hon. S. A. Bartleson for copies of bills.
Sid. seems to be well in with the ma
jority, and is overlooking no point of
interest for o'.d Pinal. If he succeeds
in holding what we already have, he
will be doing remarkably well, con
sidering the manner in -which he is
Copper has reached the 18 mark
and promises to go to 20 cents a pound.
This means increased activity in copper
mines and a boom for copper prospects.
It is not generally known that Ari
zona has two mines which produce
woe-ninth of all the copper output of
.the United States, and innumerable
undeveloped claims which promise to
become almost as great producers.
Hence it is not to be wondered at that
copper properties in this Territory are
in great demand.
Mb. C. C. Babb, of the U. S. Geologi-
cal Survey, who has charge of the pre
liminary work at theButtes, was again
in town this week. He reports the
work of sounding progressing satis-
factorily. Three holes have been sunk
to bed-rock by the diamond drill, as
follows: 25, CO and 90 feet, the latter
being in the middle of the channel, and
will probably prove to be the deepest.
In each case the drill has penetrated
solid rock for several feet, which is
found to be uniform and solid granite,
all that could he desired for a good
If the Legislature, instead of memori
alizing Congress to cede the arid lands
to the Territory, would make a proper
representation to the general govern
ment of the condition of the work at
the Buttes, and urge additional appro
priations for its continuance, not for
getting the benefits to be derived by
the poor down-trodden Indian, it would
be accomplishing something for the
territory. Doubtless Pinal county's
representatives have not overlooked
this. If they have, all that will be
necessary is to call their attention to it.
The following from the Denver
Reporter, one of the most prominent
. mining journals of the Bocky Moun
tains, is indicative of the advance
ment Arizona is making in the estima
tion of the people of the country at
"The newspapers and publications
devoted to the mining industry are
giving much prominence to the pro
; gress of mine development and pro
duction in Arizona. All of which in
dicates that the ban of ignorance and
prejudice, which has so long held that
wonderfully rich portion of the coun
try in durance, has been lifted, and
that the recognition of the almost
limitless possibilities of Arizona as a
field for successful mining bas at last
been forced upon the minds of a re
luctant public appreciation. For
years Arizona was the theater of sav
age warfare between the settlers and
the Apache, in which, with the aid
of the United States army, the settlers
retained a somewhat precarious hold
ing of ranch and mine. The end came
there as it must come ever where in the
survival of the fittest, and the Apache
warrior, gradually gave way to the
forces of modern progress. That
Arizona has phenomenally large and
valuable copper mines has been proven,
and in silver and lead which wait the
touch of enterprise, there is sure
proof. In gold, 'with such mines as
the Congress, and others that are being
put upon a productive basis, Arizona
will soon be classed in the first rank of
producing States or Territories. The
treeless waste and waterless deserts
have taken their place with other
fables, and where the Apache held his
savage reign there is now the sound
hammer and drill, the crash of blast
and ceaseless roar of mill and furnace.
Thousands of cattle graze upon the
plainsand in the valleys blossom and
ripen abundant harvests."
The Tribune does not favor
"expansion" which ought to have
settled the matter), but when the
Filipinos fired on our troops, there
was nothing left to do but to knock
theeverlasting stuffing out of themf
which our .soldier boys did most
effectively, and they deserve much
credit for their good work. Still, we
think the purchase and occupation of
the Philippines without the consent of
the inhabitants was a grave mistake'
and contrary to the fundamental prin
ciples of our government. As
matter of business policy, the Tribune
has all along contended that : the
$20,000,000 to be paid Spain for those
islands could have been far more profit
ably expended in building water
storage reservoirs and otherwise
developing the latent resources of the
arid west. The recent battle with the
natives at Manila has nut caused a
change of opib ion on that point.
Talmageand the Farmers.
Encourage the farmers. They come
into your stores, you meet them in the
city markets, you often associate with
them in the summer months. Office
seekers go through the land and they
stand on political platforms and they
tell the farmers the story about the
independent life of a farmer, giving
flattery where they ought to give sym
pathy. Independent of what? I was
brought up on a farm ; I worked on a
farm ; I know all about it. 1 hardly
saw a city untill I was grown, and I
tell you that there are no class of
people in this country who have it
harder and who more need your sym
pathy than farmers. Independent of
what? Of the curcalio that stings the
peach trees? Of the rust in the
wheat? Of the long rain with the rye
down ? Independent of the grasshop
per? Of the locust? Of the army
worm? Of the potato bug? Independ.
ent of the drouth that burns up the
harvest? Independent of the cow
with the hollow horn? Or the sheep
with the foot rot? Or the pet horse
with a nail in his hoof? Independent
of the cold that freezes out the winter
grain? Independent of the snowbank
out of which he must shovel himself?
Independent of the cold weather when
be stands threshing his numb fingers
around his body to keep them from
being frosted? Independent of the
frozen ears and the frozen feet? Inde
pendent of what? Fancy farmers who
have made their fortunes in the city
and go out in the country to build
houses with all the modern improve
ments, and make farming a luxury,
may not need solace; but the yeo
manry who get their living out of the
oil, and who that way have to clothe
their families and educate their chil
dren and pay their taxes and meet the
interest on mortgaged farms such
men find a terrific struggle. I demand
that office-seekers and politicians fold
up their gaseous and imbecile speeches
about the independent life of a farmer
and substitute some word of comfort
drawn from the fact that they are free
from city conventionalities and city
epidemics and city temptations. My
most vivid remembrance of boyhood is
of my father coming in on a very hot
day from the harvest field and seating
himself oa the doorsill because he was
too faint to get into the house, the
perspiration streaming from forehead
and from chin, and my mother trying
to resuscitate him with a cup of cold
water which he was too faint to hold
to his own lips, while saying to ns,
"Don't be frightened ; there's nothing
the matter; a little tired, that's all, a
little tired." Ever since that dy
when I hear people talking about the
independent life of a farmer . I see
through the sham. Farmers want not
your flatteries, .but your sympathies.
Gov. Murphy says in his message:
"It is frequently stated that mines
worth $100,000,000 in Arizona and which
pay interest to their owners on that
amount do not pay taxes upon a valua
tion for all their property, real and
personal, of $2,000,000. This is wrong
and in no WBy can the proposition be
defended that greater riches in gold,
copper and silver dug from Arizona
ground and distributed as dividends in
the east and in Europe should not be
taxed in some manner from within the
