THE FLORENCE TRIBUNE
By CiUS. D. REPPY. only paperTn piruiTcoulm. FLORENCE. ARIZONA. APRIL 8, 1839. TERMS: OneYear t'UO Six Months 1.50 Sinnle Copies Five Cents Entered at tho Florence postoifice as second class matter. With copper at 18 cents a poiiDd, there is do place like borne. CommitTke reports indicate that the required (9,000,000 will be subscribed lor the St. Louis World's Fair. New Mexico has just seat two lawyers to the penitentiary. There is no question about it, that territory is better fitted for statehood than we are. If Mr. Paul Hall, the well-known newspaper writer, happens to come over this way in order to get a look at the voters who sent imbecile or dis Louet Republican legislators to mis represent Pinal county in the last Legislature, it will be the duty of our best citizens to see that the leading cranks (some of them calling them selves democrats) are kept locked up during his visit. Otherwise lie is apt to get an unfavorable impression of our live little community. General J. i". Wilson, our Delegate in Congress, writes that he will be in Florence on the 25lh instant, accom panied by Chief Justice Street and Judge Wm. II. Barnes, for the purpose of personally inspecting the site of the proposed Buttes reservoir, in order that he can more effectively urge further appropriations from Congress for its completion. Our people will take pleasure in entertaining these dis tinguished gentlemen, and will doubt less make their visit both pleasant and 1'rofitable. FiiOM F. II. Kewell's letter to Thomas Boyle, of Phoenix, published in this issue, it seems he is unaware of the fact that the last Legislature adopted a memorial commending the work of the U. S. Geological Survey at the Florence Buttes, and asking for further appropriations for the comple tion of the Government dam. Such a memorial was introduced by Mr. Bartleson, unanimously passed both houses, and the Secretary of the Terri tory was instructed to transmit copies of the same to our Delegate iu Congress, the President of the Senate and the Speaker of Hou3eof Representatives. Representative , Sulzer of New York, who is in Washington, said the other day : "I am sorry that Col. Bryan has seen fit to give Belmont so much free advertising, as Belmont represents no portion of the democratic party in New York. Col. Bryan has not im paired his popularity in the Empire State by his refusal to count Mr. Belmont and his fellow-bolters as democrats. The democracy of New Y'ork will see to it that Chicago plat form democrats are selected to the next National contention, and all apprehension in this regard is needless and absolutely without justification, from the attitude of the true demo cratic party in New Y'ork." N. H. Meixok writes from Dudley ville. that the Santiago group of gold mines, in which he is interested, is developing into a bonanza. There are three locations along the ledge, which can be traced the entire distance. The deepest shaft is 30 feet, at the bottom of which the vein is four feet wide, and from pannings it is estimated the rock will go $20 to the ton. This property is on the recently segregated strip from San Carlos Indian reserva tion, only six or seven miles from Dudleyville, and but a short distance from the coal fields. From all accounts this is the coming district, as other equally valuable miDes are being devel oped. Mr. Mellor is to be congratu lated over his rich strike. Wmi.E in town this week Mr. Alex ander llill, one of the principal owners of the Ray copper mine, said the com pany was well pleased with the prop erty and would consummate ttie sale at once. He was on his way to London, where arrangements would be made for putting extensive -works on the property, and the eompauy would without doubt build a railroad to connect it with the Southern Pacific. That the road will be run through Florence there seems to be little question. This is the best news the Thibuke has been called upon to pub lish in many a day, and it can be relied upon as authentic, coming from the source it does. Mr. Hill said the company was prepared to spend a million dollars before expecting any returns. There is encouragement iu the fact that the faculty of tho University of Arizona are runuing that institution instead of the students. If the young men wanted to "fight," why 'didu't they go to war. In response to a telegram from his son, John D. Younjr, J. llou Young left last nijrht for Kingman, Ariz. John Young is well known iu Phoenix and is a graduate of the mi u era I depart ment at the Arizona university. While iu Kingman he lias bcon following his business as a mining export, lie has made a strike at Chloride, a small place about seventeen miles from Kingman. From reports tho mine will be almost a bonanza. It is claimed that it con tains an exceptionally large ledge which runs fifteen ounces of gold and seventy-five ounces of silver. Either metal in the abstract would be con sidered a good strike. The country about Kingman has been wrought up to a high pitch of excitement on ac count of the discovery, and the news is spreading. Mr. Young came into possession of the property in a singular manner, lie was following his busi ness as a mining expert when he was called upon to do a small job of work in that line. The employer subsequen tly informed him that he bad no means of recompense other than to give him a prospect. Mr. Y'oung was forced to accept what has proven by all reports to be a very rich proposition. He wrote in his letter that he had waited t.vodays after making the strike in order to allow the fever to cool. He wanted to be perfectly normal when he wrote and to substantiate the reports. That the Kingman section is excited over the Grid may be shown by the fact that at the moment of his writing there was a m.m sitting beside him who had been attempting ever since the discovery was made to pur criase a one lentn suare in ilia mine for $3,000. Mr. Y'cung preferred to await the arrival of his father before entering intsany negotiations. Phoe nix Republican. ARIZONA MUST SPEAK. Congress Will Tko No Aotlon Until the People Express Themselvos. W. II. Graham of Florence is in the city to-day having brought up a load or wheat with him to the Tucson market. Mr. Graham is one of the substantial ranchers under the Florence canal, lie says tu at tlie iruit crop down that way will be very large this year, tiie tr ees having escaped any damoge from frost last winter. The 6rst crop of alfalfa of this season will be cut in two weeks. "We are goitig to have a good hay crop," said Mr. Graham, "and barley is going to yield well." lie said that there is hope of the ranchers getting control of the Florence canal which some time ago went into the hands of a receiver and which they depend on for water to irrigate their lands. A representative of the ranchers has gone east to ar range for the transfer of the property, if possible, ff t!ie ranchers are sac cessful in obtaining the canal prop erty they will operate it on the co operative plan, such as is in operation uoder the Buckeye canal by the ranchers in that locality. Tuasou Citizen. Ths Globe Road. From tliB Phoe:i'x GazBtts. The following letter to one of our Phoenix citizens was written by a prominent man well know to many of our people as a frieud of Arizona. Ue expresses a great truth when he says that the people ol this territory must express thsir needs clearly in order to obtain congressional recogni tion aad action. It is a matte.- of :lee p regret that the legislature did not have a single champ'on amon" its members who had the interests or the welfare of the territory sufficiently at heart to insist upon some cNpression taut could have been used to influence doiigress to cive e.r to the pn-inir necessity of Arizona in the matter of water storage. Some of them who were loudest ia promises in this direetio'i before election fell flatter than flat in the puddles made by the mule hoofs as the days of legislation approached the mark of six-.y : Washington, March 23, i8',9. Mr. Thomas 1! yle, Phoenix,. Ari zonaDear Sir: Your letter of'March 23 has been receive.!, together with copies of II. H. No. 9-1 and clipping giving results of meeting of irrigators. I have examined these with interest. I regret to k-arn that no action was taken by your lcgis!ature. I have long appreciated the necessity of water storage in Arizona and am doing whatever is possible to forward it. We now have a field party operat ing along the Gila river under a clause in the Indian appropriation bill. Their work is narrowly restricted by law, so that we cannot take up the ques tion of larger public importance. If this could be done I have no doubt but that the result would be bencS cial. Until the people of Arizona ex press themselves clearly and emphati cally on the subject it of course is improbable that congress will take action. Very truly yours, F. II. Newei.l, Hydrographer. Wireless Telegraphy a Success. London, April 1. A New Yrork Jour nal correspondent cables: France and England were connected successfully to-day by wireless telegraphy. Mar coni's system was ueeJ between Dover and Boulogne, and in the presence of a committee appointed by the French government a message was sent by Marconi to England which was prompt ly returned from Dover. Tiiere was not the slightest hitch ia the experi ment. The message passed and re passed quickly and easily. The news has just been received that the fence erected by Cameron at the Verba Buena ranch, enclosing a pasture eight miles in circumference, on what was the Calabasas grant, has been wiped from the face of the earth, the wire being cut and the posts cut down. As the Oasis goes to press the report is being circulated that last night the Stone House pasture fence was also cut to' pieces, both posts an d wire being cut. It is also reported that tho wire on the Moreno pasture was finished, only part having been previously cut. Nogales Oasis. Col. Egbert, who used to be stationed at Fort Mohave, was killed at Manila last week. Col. Egbert was wounded at San Juan Hill and also in the war of the rebellion. Was twice a prisoner at Libby prison and was quite a noted man in military circles. Remarkable Cure of Rheumatism. Kenna, Jackson Co., W. Va. About three years ago my wife had an attack of rheumatism which con fined her to her bed for over a month and rendered her unable to walk a step without assistance, her lirribs being swollen to double their normal size. Mr. S. Maddox insisted on my using Chamberlain's Pain Balm. I purchased a fifty-cent bottle and used it according to the directions and the next morning she walked to breakfast without assistance in any manner, and she has not had a similar attack Bince. A.

Money has been puij down to bind a million dollar option on each the Pride of the West, the Belmont and the Allen mines in Washington dis trict. The purchase of tliese mines and the building of the railroad line already surveyed out from Crit tenden form a part of the work laid out by three of the largest com panies of capitalists in the United States. The Westinghousj company (of air brake fame) have tho railroad ven ture in hand, and have a party of men on the ground now to push the latter improvement to a rapid and successful issue. The names of the companies pur chasing these properties will be kept secret for a few days for business reasons, but that this gigantic deal is as we have said not the shadow of a doubt remains. The story leaked out three days ago, but up to last night we could not get sufiicient corSrmation of its truthfulness t- warrant its publication. The Journal-Miner: Paul Hull, a very brilliant journalist of Chicago, one of more or less national renown, has spent the winter in Phoenix for his health. Just to keep in prac tice in his profession, he reported the proceedings of the legislature for the Republican. The proceedings were so highly amusing in many of their features in regard to rulings and otherwise, that Mr. Hull's ciriosity lias been aroused, and the Gazette says that "he started out on a tour of in vestigation. His principal desire is to see what kind of people they were that sent the last legislators to Phoenix." James Reed, a miner from Riverside, arrived in the city from Florence yes terday. He says that town is recover ing from its Rip Van Winkle slumber and many improvements are being made. L. K." Drais has transformed the brick hotel and expects to move into it next week. The bar has been pa pered and painted and the dining room has been remodeled until it is one of the most pleasant in the country. Shade trees have been set out and the face of the place generally changed. This might not be considered a strik ing improvement in Phoenix, but it proves that there is a great deal of faith left in Florence. Republican. Since the passage of the Interna 1 Revenue Act, mining companies have generally made the par value of their stock five or ten cents instead of $1.00 or S5.00 as formerly. This makes a great saving in internal revenue taxes as the rate is based on the par value of the stock. The Black Warrior Copper company is building a track 6100 feet long, from the Dadeville and Montgomery mines to the site of the proposed leaehin" plant in Lost Gulch. Everything for the leaching plant will arrive within thirty days. From the Tempe News. James C. Goodwin, who is in charge of the Lost liu Ich mill and mine, will return to Globe on Saturday after a visit of several days in the valley. The work on the Globe road, he says, is progressing rapidly. He removes a misunderstanding concerning the op perations which were supposed to have nothing to do with the Globe road. The road is now being constructed be tween the" Black Warrior mine and Pinto Creek. This is on the line of the Globe-Mesa road. There is already a good road from the mine to Globe, nine miles away. The work between the Black Warrior and Pinto Creek is being done by twenty-five. Apache In dians who learned the art of road building on the grade of the Gila Valley, Globe & Northern railroad. It is about twelve miles from the Black Warrior to Pinto Creek and the Indians have nearly covered the dis tance. C. R. Hakes, who has charge of the work on the east side, will shortly begin operations between Queen Creek and Pinto. The distance i3 about twelve miles. Ther.' is a good desert road from Qaeen Creek to Mesa of about forty-fire u.i!cs. The entire distance from Mesa to Globe is eighty three miies. There is only about twenty-four miles of mountain road. The undertaking is not njarly so herculean as was supposed. It is a wonder that it was not undertaken sooner, since so mu;-U was to be gained by it, the cutting off of almost half the present distance by the way of Flor ence, which is about 151 miles. When the new road is completed tho journey from the valley to the big mining cimp can be made in a day, and the traveler will not have to load himself down with horse feed and other commissary supplies as if lie were going to war. Mineral Crssk Mines. From the Tucson Star. The Ray people are surveying their claims and niakiug maps. Mrs. Alfred Kinney is getting ready to take out ore for shipping. Murry Innes is down 110 feet on one of his claims. This shaft is all in ore of a sulphide character. The properties of Thomas Haley and William Sufferin continue to improve, and at present these gentlemen are re ported as saying, "None of our claims are for sale." Charles Taylor and C. II. neberlein left last Saturday for Mineral Creek, where Mr. Taylor has been holding copper properties for the last twelve years. Mr. Heberlein, who accom panies Mr. Taylor, is the metallurgist for the Old Dominion. Some of these days Arizona citizens will forget their partisanship long enough to form a ballot trust, and when they do such men as Carpenter and Wright will have to begin work ing for a living. Gazette. Mrs. Pauline O'Neill, the widow of Captain Wm. O. O'Neill, who fell in the late war with Spain, has been granted a pension of .20 a month. The Best in the World. We believe Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is the best in the world. A few weks ago we suffered with a severe cold and a troublesome cough, and having read their advertisements in our own and other papers we pur chased a bottle to see if it would effect us. It cured us before the bottle was more than half used. It is the best medicine out for colds and coughs. The Herald. Andersonville, Ind. For sale by Brockvvay's Pharmacy. Florence Hotel, L. K.
