The merchants of Florence are all

Provided, of course, that the Buttes
dam is built. There ia a general good
feeling in mining, live stock and agri
cultural circles. In mining especially
is there great activity, which indicates
that our county is oa the high road to
Never before in the world has there
been such general and widespread ac
tivity in mining in all parts of the
world, and for all the important min
erals, says the New York Financial
News. This activity is more concen
trated and intense in the United States
than elsewhere, but it is spreading in
every region. Australia, Africa, China,
the Islands of the Pacific, Europe,
South America, British North America,
Mexico, are all in the rush as well as
are we of the United States. It is an
age of mining. We have passed Great
Britain now in the output of coal, far
excel any other country in the produc
tion of iron ores ; we raise a big part of
the copper that comes out of the earth,
and zinc, lead, antimony, etc., and the
development of gold mining keeps tip
with the procession. In every mining
state and territory of the Union there
is an amount of work going on not
heretofore equalled. The old fields are
giving out enlarged yields aDd the new
ones are constantly coming forward.
Coal is the basis of modern energy and
steel and copper the body and nerves
of modern appliances and machinery
in the arts and industries. This has
given a foundation to mining which
has taken from it speculative, uncertain
features which have long kept it out of
what called itself "legitimate busi
ness." To-day there is no business so
legitimate, so ttuble, so certain of
giving good return for capital and
labor putintoitas mining, whether for
iron or coal, or gold or silver. The
jvorld needs for its modern progress
the mineral wealth of the earth, and
capital is as ready to go into mining
now as inlJ the most favored lines of
other industry or production.

Teddy Moore andC. L. Ainsworth.
The prisoners when they heard the
verdict read showed no signs of
emotion aud their unfeeling nature
was the more forcibly impressed upon
those who had witnessed their appar
ent unconcern. In leaving the court
room in charge of officers their
elasticity of 6tep or general demeanor
was not affected any more than their
usual walk over the same ground to

was stubborn' foisgbt. Capable and

An Official Mining Censorship.
From the Phoenix Enterprise.
Official warning, by means of proc
lamation of the governor, has beea
served on a number of miuing com
panies, that do not meet the ap
proval of the chief executive of this
territory. This sudden spasm of
virtue, if it comes with a desire to
protect legitimate mining, might be
pardonable. But there have not been
official warnings to protect the people
against the funding of illegal bonds
and other lines of corruption. So far
as is known, it is outsiders that are
pushing these wild-cat mining stocks.
But it will be a dangerous precedent
to establish, to require the official
sanction of Murphy, his mining expert
and his newspaper trust, before prop
erty can be placed on the market.
The Enterprise will keep an eye on
the mining censors.
Rewards aggregating $ 2,100 hve

Tte army in the Philippines is to be

The output of the United Verde
mine at Jerome equals, if it does not
exceed in value, the entire output of
all the mines in Cripple Creek district,
Colorado, and yet Cripple Creek is looked
upon as a metalliferous wonder.

From the Tempe Ner.s, 2Cth.)
Shortly after nine o'clock this morn
ing the shocking news was brought to
town that E. O. Fraukenberg had
been dragged and kicked to death by
a horse, on his ranch southeast of
The particulars of. tho tragedy as
learned by a News reporter, are as
follows: Mr. Frankenberg had gone
into the pasture and caught his iron
gray driving mare upon which he
placed an ordinary tie rope. lie wa3
leading the animal along the fence
toward the house, when he was aa
costed by a man who was iu tho road.
He stopped to talk to the man and it
seems that he had coiled the rope
around his left arm. While he was
still engaged in conversation a band
of young horses and cattle that were
iu the pasture collected uronud, and a
young horse playfully bit the mare
oa the shoulder. This caasid her to
suddenly wheel arouud and the liorsja
and cattle at once stampeded, the
mare going with them. When the
mare first swung around the rope had
evidently, drawn tight arotijid Mr.
Frankenberg's arm and had thon
kinked so .that it could not come off.
The eye witness stated that for the
iiitt iew jumps mr.de by the mare
Mr. Fr:inlseob?rg kept ou his feet but
the horse appeared to kick him on t'.ie
chin and he fell to the ground and at
every jump the hind feet of the animal

whom he had been talking, and who is
a stranger ia this se.tion, at once
entered the field and pursued the run
away. After goir.g about one hundred
yards the horse stopped and wheeled
around, facing the prostrate form and
stood there trembling all over. The
man cautiously approached and caught
hold of the halter which lie endeivored
to remove from Mr. Frankeaberg'i
arm. He was unable to do this so he
cut the rope and at onca examined the
body and found that life had already
departed from it. He then went to
the house and gave the alarm.
Word was at once sent to town and a
coroner's jury went out and viewed
the remains and rendered a verdict ia
accordance with the facts.
Ernest U. Frankenberg was aged
03 years and was one of the best known
men in Maricopa county. He came to
this place from Kansas about eleven

Sam Again a Fat'nsr.
(From the Phoenix Gazette.
Samuel F. Webb yesterdiy did not
come to town to buy ginger cakes and
pop beer for "the boys." Even around
home, so Doctor Hughes reports, Sam
did not fly around with suspenders
hanging and hair on end. There was
i no indication of unusual excitement
about Sam at all yesterday. Yet there
was a time when Sain did all these
things and wondered why everybody
else was not as excited as ho was.
But th.tt was a long time ago. Now
he sits quietly utider a shade tree and
calmly smokes his pips while the
doctor reports as follows: "Another

I awoke last night with severe pains
in my stomach, I never felt so badly
in all my life. When I came down to
work this morning I felt so weak I
could hardly work. I went to Miller
& MeCurdy's drug store and they re
commended Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy. It worked
like magic and one dose fixed mo all
right. It certainly is the finest thing
I ever used for stomach trouble. I
shall not be without it in my home
hereafter, for I should not care to
endure the sufferings of last night
again for fifty times its price. Q. y.

Lake City, S. C, where the negro
P'istmaster was killed by a mob some
months ago, is having a most trying
and expensive experience.. The town
has been entirely cut off from the
postal terviee and letters cannot be
mailed or received there, or posted on
passing trains. The nearest post
office is four miles asvay, and as a con
sequence the business of Lake City is
going to pieces. This is heroic treat
ment and doubtless will prove
thoroughly effective iu preventing the
assassination of officials of tho govern
ment in that part of the country.
