The House of Representatives of
the Twentieth Legislative Assembly
did good work this week in killing
Papago county on final passage and
indefinitely postponing tha re-apportionment
bill, whereby Pinal county
would lose one of its members. Our
boys seem to be "onto their job" all
It seems silly to make the statement
that Joe Mnlhatton's story about the
magnetic cactus was made out of
whole cloth ; but snch a correction is
necessary for the benefit of certain
gullible individuals who have learned
to take as literally true everything
that appears in this veracious family
The proposition to attach the San
Pedro section of Pinal connty to Pima
has "died a'bornin." The scheme was
worked np by a few non-residents who
own property in this connty, who had
tbeir petition signed by themselves
-and a number of irresponsible resi
dents of that section, very few of
whom are either tax-payers or voters.
'The scheme is opposed by a very large
.majority of the substantial citizens of
the eastern end of the connty, who
. have no desire to become responsible
for Pima county's $760,000 debt. Pinal
.county is very well satisfied as matters
rBtand at present.
The Desert News, referring' to the
Arizona strip of country coveted by
Utah, says: "On the so-called 'Arizona
atrip,' which created so much discus
sion in the Utah legislature two years
ago and which the Arizona legislature
declined to allow to become a part of
Utah, it is estimated that Dot less than
200,000 Utah sheep, 40,000 of which are
from Kane connty, are now wintering.
There are probably 15,000 head of
cattle from Kane county on the Ari
zona strip at this time. The cattle
business is enjoying a good deal of a
boom down there." It would be well
for the assessors of our northern coun
ties to make a note of the above.
A legislator whose own county is
in danger of division might be in
better business than introducing a
bill for the creation of a new county
in which it can hardly be possible he
is interested. The remark is called
forth by the fact that Dr. Wright has
introduced a bill in the Council to
create the connty of Bowie from
Cochise and Graham counties. In
this he is certainly misrepresenting
bis constituents, who do not desire any
new counties at the present time;
neither do they want to lose any of
their own territory, which would
naturally follow the course taken by
our Councilman in antagonizing
Cochise and Graham.
Mb. John Fooga, formerly of
Tombstone, has recently been ap
pointed Clerk of the United States
Court in San Francisco. The Examin
er had his picture in a recent issue.
Johnny once told a story of being at
Dr. King's bot springs (now Hooker's)
at a time when Gen. Shafter and his
military family were encamped there
along in the Ws. They were all
seated around a camp fire and nothing
had been said for some time, when a
young lady broke the stillness with
the question, "Papa, what was it Pete
Kitchen trot in Sonora?" The men
in the party all fell dead except Gen
. Shafter and Mr. Fouga, who are the
pnly ones alive to-day to tell the tale,
President Faurk, of the French
republic, died last Thursday after an
illness of a few hours.

From the Operative Miller, Chioago, Janu
John P. Churchill, suprlntending
millwright for the Nordyke & Marmon
Co., who recently completed the new
plant of the Atlanta Milling Co., Atlan
ta, Ga., with a daily capacity of 1,200
barrels of flour and 600 barrels of meal,
writes the following letter from Ari
zona :
Arizona is remarkable for its numer
ous ruins and other remains of ancient
civilization. Among the oldest settle
ments in the United States is Tucson.
It ranks third, St. Augustine, Fla, and
Santa Fe, N. M., being a few years
older. Previous to 1865 Tucson held
fast to the old ways, particularly in
the matter of her architecture, build
ingsfor all purposes being built of
adobe and generally had but one door
and two and perhaps three small
windows. Bat since that time a great
change has taken place and the Tuc
son of today is a busy thriving city of
12,000 to 15,000 inhabitants and boasts
of many modern residences and bust
ness houses.
The Eagle Miling Co., who have been
operating a modern sized roller mill
here for several years past, realizing
the future importance of Tucson asa
distributing center for the surround
ing country, have decided to bulla
strictly first class modern mill, and
after carefully investigating the merits
of the different milling systems and
also claims of several prominent mill
buildioz establishments, they con
cluded there was but one leader, and
accordingly contracted with the
Nordyke fc Marmon Co. for a full
roller and Swing-sifter mill of 150
barrels capacity, including power
plant. The buildings, which were
designed by Nordyke & Marmon Co.,
are all models and would be a credit
to any city. The line of machinery is
very complete, there being five breaks
aud eight reductions, all of which are
handled on the Nordyke & Marmon
Swing-swifters, there being no reels
in the mill except on low grade stock,
The entire plant is a beauty, and, like
the Tucson climate, will be a joy for
ever. I arrived here January 1 with
the following crew of millwrights : J
Q. Smy the, J. M. Garben, J. D. Miller,
Geo. Duesendschon, F. M. Briggs, E.
P. Churchill, H. C. Marmon, F,
O'Brien. We expect to complete the
mill about February 20. A. A. Croft
was the contracting salesman and de
serves great credit, as his principal
opponent was a man of many years'
experience and has a national reputa
tion. The milling diagram bears the
signature of the well known milling
engineer, M. W. Hunt, which of itself
is sufficient guarantee of the milling
results. In about two or three weeks
I can furnish you with a detailed des
cription of the mill if yon can nse it to
advantage in the Operative Miller.
This certainly is a fine plant, and as an
example of what is being done In the
wild and woolly west would no doubt
make interesting reading for your sub
I cannot close without saying a
word about the beautiful climate of
Tucson. It is simply grand and must
be experienced to be appreciated. Too
can imagine we millwrights attending
ice cream and strawberry festivals ia
January, those of ripe experience
being compelled to keep their hats on
to prevent flies from slipping down on
their "skating rinks," while the
Chicago operatives are no doubt shiver
ing with cold and wondering where
last summer's wages have gone. Hop
ing this will find you well and happy
as it leaves me, I am,
Yours truly,

Tucson, Arizona.
An Editor's Life Saved by Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy.
During the early part of October,
1896, 1 contracted a bad cold which
settled on my langs and was neglected
until I feared that consumption had
apeared in an incipient state. I was
constantly coughing and trying to
expel something which I could not. I
became alarmed and after giving the
local doctor a trial bought a bottle of
Chamberlin's Cough Remedy and the
result was immediate improvement,
and after I had used three bottles my
lungs were restored to their healthy
state. B. Edwabds, Publisher of The

Washington In Southern Pima a Coming
From the Toeson Cltlseau
N H. Chapin, superintendent of the
famous Pride of the West, and who is
a witness in the land court proceedings
affecting his district, in speaking of
the outlook of Washington eamp in
cidentally mentiouedjsome facts prob
ably of public interest. On his mine,
Pride of the West, 30 men are em
ployed at present, but he expects to
double the force soon. The output is
about 15 tons daily, which of course
will be augmented with the increase
of men.
The average of ore is 15 per cent
copper, 50 ounces silver and and 1.10
ounces gold. Another mine in the
group, a lead-silver proposition, upon
which six men are employed, produces
from 30 to 40 tons per month. Mr.
Chapin ships all his ore to the Silver
City Reduction works. The Pride of
the West hi j been a steady producer
for nearly a score of years under the
continuous management of Mr.
Chapin. .
One of the oldest mines of the conn'
ty is the Belmont, which is soon to
start up after a shut down for years,
In fact, it is claimed to be the first
mine ever placed upon Pima county
records. It is now owned by the
Bacon estate of San Francisco. Frank
Olsen is working the Double Stand
ard, and ia doing well, shipping
carload of copper ore a month.
The Smuggler, located between the
Pride of the West and the Daqnesoe,
is operated by a small force under
Jerry Neville. The ore runs about 16
per cent copper. The Holland mine
and mill, owned by Colorado men, has
been temporarily suspended for
couple of months, but it is expected to
be operated again shortly with a larger
force than ever. The people of the
district are encouraged over the pros
pects, of a railroad within a year or
two to connect them with the South
ern Pacific. Surveyors are now in the
field making three surveys before
determining the route most acceptable,

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall s Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature in
doing its work. The proprietors have
so much faith in its curative powers,
that tbey offer One Hundred Dollars
for any case that it fails to cure. Send
for list of testimonials.
