Murpey didn't know the Arizona
newspapers were loaded.
Florence will celebrate the 4th of
.July in an appropriate manner, as will
jbe seen by the programme published
n another column.
If the Governor bad only issued a
proclamation before those fraudulent
' Pima and Yavapai county bouds were
validated by Congress.
With a mining censor and a press
censor Arizona seems to be pretty well
provided for. If you want to engage
in mining, see Murphy.
Tub Kingman Miner advertises two
setting down machines for sale. Don't
need any thing of the kind here; we
can do it all right without machinery
this warm weather.
Befork Oakes Murphy gets through
vith the Arizona newspapers he will
wish be hadn't given np his job as
-look-out for a skin faro game to become
,Jovernor of the territory.
The Tribcwe can be depended on to
jump q ny man or set of meu who
we against the best interests of Ari
zona, and especially Pinal county. It
may make itself unpopular among the
boodlers, but it does not seek the
friendship of that class of people.
The Pima Record and Benson Breeze
are two new Arizona papers which
opened their eyes upon the wicked
world this week. Both "fill long-felt
wants, hare come to stay," and the
Phoenix newspaper trust has no need
-to cast its basilisk optics upon them.
As esteemed subscriber of the Tri
bute writes from Los Angeles, inclos
ing $3 and ordering his paper discon
tinued for the present. He says :
"The Ucllinley boom has struck me
so hard that I have been compelled to
cut down expenses." Thus this era of
trusts affects everybody.
Tax latest mining item from Southern
California relates to the discovery of a gold
bearing ledge twenty miles from San Diego,
which is said to be forty miles long, forty
feet wide, and carrying gold to the value of
$150 to the ton. Prospector.
We shall - probably next hear pf
Governor Gage issning a proclamation
to protect the Eastern servant girls.
If Gage neglects his plain duty in the
matter, Murphy can be depended on
to do it.
The Indians employed in clearing
off the brush along the canal are doing
good work and have already covered
nearly four miles from the headgate.
When the Government commences the
construction of the Buttes reservoir,
several hundred will doubtless be em
ployed as common laborers. They are
well satis 9 ed with u dollar a day and
board themselves. While the Tkibuse
as a rule is opposed to cheap labor, it
is willing to w aive the subject in the
interest of tbo reservoir.
The people of Arizona owe the Los
Angeles Times a debt of gratitude for
its open and manly stand in opposition
to cession of the arid lands to the States
and Territories, which in plain words
means a steal. The mere fact that the
Governor of this territory advocates it
is enough to cast suspicion upon the
proposition, as the legalizing of Yava
pai county end Narrow-gauge bonds
opened the eyes of many who at one
time thought Governor Murphy was
honest and conscientious.
Word comes from Denver that Mr.
W. P. Dunham has won the first round
in bis contest with the Hull City
Placer company. The fight came up
in the Land Office, and resulted in
completely proving the fraud of the
Placer company's patent. The many
friends of Mr. Dunham in this section
congratulate him npon the success so
far attained, and confidently predict
he will win out. Tbe property in
volved in tbe controversy includes some
of Cripple Creek's richest gold mines,
and amounts to millions.
The Tribuse takes pleasure this
week in republishing Colonel McCord's
letter to the Los Angeles Times. It
breathes so much better sense than
anything that ever emanated from his
successor in the gubernatorial chair
that it will prove of great satisfaction
to read H. Que. of the direst inisfor
tunes Arizona has met with in late
years was when Colonel McCord re
signed the office of Governor to go into
the army, and Oakes Murphy was p
oointed to fill the vacancy.
CHIEF HYDROQRAPHER NEWELL
dives His Views on the Buttes JRes
He Expresses Confidence that it Will ba
' Built Soon If the People cf Arir
zona Stand Together,
Mr. F. II. Newell4 chief hydrographer
of the United States Geological Survey,
with headquarters in Washington,
was in Florence last Sunday on his re
turn from an inspection of the work at
the Buttes, and accorded an intei-riew
to a Tribune reprsenjtative. As the
head of this great department of the
service his words are authoritative.
He expressed himself as strongly in
favor of the Government building
storage reservoirs, especially this one
at the Buttes, and was equally strong
in opposition to the cession of arid
lands to the territory, as that plan
bad proven a failure and eras now
dead. Mr. Neweil said, "I am sorry
to see the cession issue brought up at
this time. Those who are advocating
it are enemies to the Buttes proposi
tion, and I can hardly conceive of such
petty opposition. If the people of
Arizona would stand as one man in
favor, and earnestly work to that end,
the Buttes reservoir would soon be an
accomplished fact, eoi the Tonto
Basin and other reservoirs would &!
low. The Buttes scheme has by far
the best chance for Government aid.
Big so absolutely necessary for the
welfare of some 4,000 Indians on the
Sacaton reservation, it will have the
support of Eastern Senators and Con'
gressmun that no other plan can secure
Hence it is surprising that opposition
should come from your own people,
and if an appropriation fails in the
next Congress, you can lay the blame
right at home. The plana for the
Buttes reservoir are now about com
plete. The scheme is feasible, though
the depth to bedrock lias been a coin'
plication whieh was only overcome iy
a change of plans. The best experts
in the United States have been em
ployed in the preliminary work, and
the $20,000 appropriated by the last
Congress has been eonscientiouly ex
pended. The final reports,' which will
be retdy for submission to Congress at
the opening " of Us next session, will
show the entire feasibility of the
scheme and will be perfect in every de

factory, the material on the ground
being all that was necessary for the
manufacture of an excellent quality of
that most necessary article which
enters largely into structures of the
kind. This will greatly reduce the
cost. And the matter of employing as
common laborers the Indians, for
whose ostensible benefit the dam is to
be built, will also enter into the prop
osition. Thus it will be seen that
the cost is to be figured down as low

Some days ago I met Murray Innes at
the Orndorff. Like many other mm
i ng men he was very reticent concern
ing his holdings on Mineral Creek,
Pinal county. The story goes that
Innes, who was a few years ago asssyer
for the Arizona Copper company,
Clifton, later following the profession
at Globe, had gone into the creek and
located several claims. He prospected,
and becoming satisfied that he had a
good thing he wanted to get the testi
mony of Manager Colquhoun, of the
Arizona Copper company, in having
him go over and investigate and report
on the property. Mr. Colquhoun acceded
to the request of Mr. Innes and visited
the property." He reported that it was
good enough to get $10,000 ont of.- He
suggested, however, to Innes to secure
some claims abutting on the Kay prop
erties. This Mr. Innes did and in
terested J. G. Hopkins in taking a half
interest in the two properties. Hopki n
has made good money in Arizona stock,
being associated in the management
as financial agent and cashier in the
Clifton office of the company. He is
now in London with the expectation
of unloading the Innes-Hopkins hold
ings for about half a million. G. W. :

Navajo Sheepmen Complaining of Migra
tory nerds. 1
The Winslow Mail - says: Local
sheepmen are complaining liilterlir
migratory herds and the outrageous
manner tji which they hold their herds
on ranges to pruich they have no claim
or right whatever. Quite a number of
California sheep are being held in this
county and their owners have no re
spect for the rights of others. They
own no ranches, control no wuter
aveno place of habitation, but drive
their herds from range to ranee, de
nuding Uvein of all vegetation as they
go. It ls wonder thatourloeal flock-
masters do not adopt "the shoteun
policy in protecting the rights which
belong to them by custom, if not by
To this the Phoenix Enterprise re
plied: This is a singular plea to come
from the sheepmen of northern Ari
zona who each winter drive their flocks
to Maricopa county, where they own
no ranches, control no water, have no
habitation, but drive their herds from
range to range, denuding them of
vegetation as they go. It is a wonder
that ocb local cattlemen do not adopt
the shotgun policy so eloquently ad
vocated by this sheepherder.
An Open Record.
From the Phoenix Enterprise.
Governor Muruhv needs no defense at our
hands nor in any place where he is known.
His record is an open book. He has done
more for Arizonathan any other man in the
territory or out of if.. He made a national
reputation while in congress, and is Tee
ognized as one of the strong mew of the
country. i Be publican.
Inasmuch as a former governor of
Arizona refused to grant requisition
papers to the Oregon officials, no de
fense was necessary. His record has
not all been published, however, in
these parts, but iwh wonld make an
interesting book. If the editor of the
Republican desires another page, "ha
might secure it by -writing U the
Dalles Steamship Navigation company,
, Murphy has done more TO Arizona
than has any other individual in the ter
ritory. He secured somewhat of a na
tional reputation by infusing life, vi
tality and thieving propensities into
nearly a million dollars in fraudulent
bonds of Yavapai and Pima counties.
He has lived off the fat of the land and
bas never been known to produce or
create an honest dollar. As to his
"strength," that was demonstrated
when a colored man beat him for dele
gate to the last republican city convea
tion, by vote of 56 to 41, in the first
ward of the city of Pnoenix.
Thia slobbering over Murphy is be
coming quite disgusting to the decot
people of Arizona, especially when his
hirelings do the writing.
By the way, the people of Pima
county may look for another move to
maintain the credit of Arizona by fund
ing those old railroad bonds before tiie
summer is over. Murphy is shaping
np to do something for (to) lima

enjoying a hearty laugh at the expense
of Agent George A. Mank. Mr. Maali
was recently promoted from the Mesa
agency to that of Phoenix. The first
night Mr. Mauk staid in Phoenix his
room seemed too close and warm. He
betook himself to the city hall plaza
and on one of the settees sought
rest. Mr. Mauk does not sleep out on
the plaza settees any more. During
that night he was arrested twice as a
subject fit for the city's care. Re

IS IT RIGHT
For an Editor to Recommend
From Sylvan Talley News, Brevard, N. C.j
It may be a question whether the
editor of a newspaper baa. the right to
publicly recommend any of the vari
ous proprietary medicines which, flood
the market, yet as. a preventive of
suffering we feel it a duty to say a
good word for Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. We
have known and vised this, medicine in
our family for twenty years and have
always found it reliable. In many
cases a dose of thia remedy would save
hours of suffering while a physician is
awaited. We do not believe in depend
ing implicitly on any medicine for a
cure, but v?e do believe that if a bottle
of Chmberlain's Diarrhoea Remedy
were kept on hand and administered
at t,he inception of an attack Vnuch.
Suffering might be avoided and in very
many cases the presence of a physician
would not bet required. At least thia
has been our experience during the
past twenty years. For sale by Brockt

Anothar Big Fir in Jerome.
Jerome, Arizona, June 28. Fire
broke out in the United Verde Copper
company's reverbratory furnace last
night and still burns fiercely. Ihe re
verbratory is one of U'e largest of its
kind in the United States and is direct
ly under the railroad track. Back of it
a few feet are the coke bins. To the
north is the power-house, representing
an investment of $250,000. The fire
ate away the coke bins, holding 500
tons of coke. The mass of inflammable
material fell with a crash on the fire
and the whole made a most intense
heat. No effort was made to save the
coke, but every energy was lent to
keep the fire from burning the power
house. Tons of burning coke fell into
an open shaft and set the 140 foot lev
el of the mine on fire. But this was
controlled if tersix hours fighting. The
loss is not known at this hour, but it
will be heavy and falls upon Senator
The fire originated from friction on
one of the belts of the furnace blower.
Twelve hundred men have been
thrown out of employment tempora
rily. A carload of machinery has arrived
for the Mammoth-Collins Gold Mining
company. The shipment comprises in
addition to other machinery a large
double hoisting engine. The mines
are prospering and with the addition
of the new machinery will be better
equipped to handle the ore. Tucson
"We have sold many different cough
remedies, but none has given better
satisfaction than Chamberlain's," says

and can be relied upon in all cases of
cough, colds or hoarseness. Sold by
