The report of the production of cop
per in 1698 has just been submitted to
the United States geological survey by
Special Agent Kirchoff. The produc
tion of the United States was 126,
375,591 pounds, the largest pro
duction ever reported. The increase
was largest in Arizona, while the Lake
Superior district also recorded an ad-.
ance. Montana fell off considerably.

"No man is good enough to govern an-
, other man without that other's consent.
- When the white man governs himself that is
elf -government; but when he governs him
self and also governs another man, that is
despotism. Our reliance is in the the spirit
which prizes liberty as the heritage of all
men in all lands, everywhere. Those who
deny freedom, deserve it not for them
Boss Hassa was recently inter
viewed by a newspaper reporter. In
reference to the campaign of 1896,
ilanna is quoted as saying : "I made
my headquarters at Chicago, and there
watched every move made by our
cpponents just as we would( watch a
game of chess. We carried the fight
into every state and kept oar opponents
busy at their homes, so that they could
not come outside and fight us. Of
course, we spent a large amount of
money. We bad to. When the cam
paign first opened we had no speaker
who could discuss the issue without
being confronted with what they had
aid previously in discussing the cur
rency question. You see, we had to
wing around, for when Major Mc
Kinley was nominated it was thought
that Whitney and his friends would
beat the free silver men in the demo
cratic convention and make the fight
on the tariff."
The leading commercial organiza
tions cf California, ably seconded by
the State Press associ ation, are work
ing to have the state take up the ques
tion of the storage of flood waters by
means of reservoirs in the wountaios.
Water has thus been stored in France,
Egypt, India and other countries, and
the recent drought in California has
made it apparent that such a course,
must be adopted by that state for its
future salvation. The project is
entirely feasible not only in Califor
nia but In Arizona. This territory can
be made one great garden by the
storage of the waste water. Tucson
The "Knockers" Knocked.
(From the Phoeuix Enterprise.
Orders have been Issued along the
line ,to return tbe fire and the trust
papers are now falling over each other
to come to the rescue of the "Perfumed
Knight." While none of them delve
into ancient history to recite deeds f
daring during younger days in Oregon
when the Dalles Steamship and Naviga
tion Co. was searching high and low
for a defaulting clerk, there is an effort
made to justify the issuance of that
official warning, aproclumation issued,
not in the interest of honesty nor with
adesireto protect innocent investors,
but for selfish gain, to induce mining
men to recognize the governor as a
factor in mining deals. Why not issue
a royal edict against crooked gamb
ling? Or, better still, why not warp
eastern people against purchasing
fraudulent bonds that have been issued
without warraut of law and against
the issuance and payment of which the
people are strong in protest? .
When, as delegate to congress, Mur
phy found some schemers ware trying
to pass a bill to put life into a few
hundred thousand dollars worth of
bonds that had been declared invalid
by the United States supreme court,
what did Murphy do? Did he send
out an official warning to the people of
Arizona? Certainly he did not. Mur
phy joined in with the baud of tbjeres
and corruptionists and by log rolling
and deception, the Murphy addition to
the funding law was passed in June,
1896. Did Murphy do this to uphold
the credit of Arizona or to hold up the
taxpayers? Surely it was the latter,
as during a residence of nearly twenty
years in Arizona, the governor has
lived by his wits as gambler, schemer
When he rolled some eastern cap
italists and speut about $75,000 around
Castle creek,, did any governor warn
the eastern people that were being
robbed? Certainly not. While there
might be question as to the advisability
of such investment, .the man who was
then governor, recognized Uiat com
mercial transactions did not properly
come under his supervision.
Now, why does not the Republican
the organ of the'governor, continue its'
attacks on the Val Verde, the United
Verde, Jr., or the United Verde Ex
tension? That organ together with
the organettes, make a big noise about
the Spenauma, which proposition was
exposed by the Bulletin and Silver
Belt some time ago. If tbe Spenazuma
was tbe only offender, why did not
that "official warning" say so? In
stead, the governor refers to several
other companies, Including tbe United
Verde Junior and United Verde Ex
tension. This made the warning gen
eral. It placed a blacklisting mark
against every prospect, ever partially
developed property in Arizona. The
inference given out was that a real
mining property should be a dividend
payer. He did not seem to realize
that every mine must go through tbe
development stage first.
Now, Murphy advertises that be
daily receives hundreds of letters from
the east asking about Arizona mines.
The scheme is working. Back there
where the governor is not known the
inference prevails that he is an honest
man ; that he is trying to protect in'
vestors and not that he is levying
blackmail off those who have claims to
sell. As these easterners now refer
all mining mutters to the governpr
there is but one safe method to pursue ;
go to the governor (take your pocket
book along), and secure a license to
buy, sell and traffic in mines. Get his
expert to examine your property, buy
a write up in the organ and secure the
governor's blessing, regardless of cost.
Either do this or let mining alone.
Tbe eastern papers devote consider
able time and space to a description of
tbe "kissing bug," a new kind of a
reptile in that section of the country
whose chief delight seems to be to bite
a person's lip. The bite causes the lip
to swell up and become quite sore for
several days. The bird is a novelty in
the eastern country, but is what is
know as. a Chinese bed bug ip this sec
tion of the world. Lordsbnrg Liberal.
IS IT RIGHT
For an Editor to Recommend
From Sylvan Talley News, Brevard, N. C
It may be a question whether the
editor of a newspaper has 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 used this medicine in
our family for twenty years and have
always found it reliable. In many
cases a dose of this 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 we do believe that if a bottle
of Chmberlain's Diarrhoea Remedy
were kept on hand and administered
at the inception of an attack much
suffering might be avoided and in very
many cases the presence of a physician
would not be required. At least this
has been our, experience during the
past twenty years. For sale by Brock

Its features of construction are distinctively its own, and not to
be found in any other makes.
It contains no "ready made" parts, such as are lined in the rank
and tile, but each and every part is manufactured from the crude
material right in the Sterling: factory.
Its construction hoi not been cheapened, but is GUARANTEED
to be ths equal in material, finish and workmanship as when it sold
for 1125.00 ...
It is t he only American bicycle using the celebrated Mannesmann
spiral fibretubin?. imported from abroad.
It is not a re-hash of old models, but is radically changed.
It represents the highest type of construction without a single
Its equipment is high gradeonly, giving a large range of options
on tires, saddles, chains and pedals.
It has a broad guage guarantee, indefinitely protecting defects.
It does not spend half the riding season in the repair shop.
It is known to every wheelman as honestly built, up-to-date and
handsome, strong and rigid, but light ruuniug and with remarkable
Itruns as well nttheendof two or three years as when itwasnew.
Its Ghninless Model is the only one made having interchangeable
rear bevels, giving the owner two widely different gears at pleasure.
If more reasons are desired they will hecheerf ully furnished,
A postal addressed to the factory or to the local agent will secure
a free cat alog showing the details of construction, and illustrating
the various Models of Chain, Chainless and Tandem types.
