THE FLORENCE TRIBUNE
" By CHAS. 0. REPPY. DNLY PAPER IN PINATCOWTY. t LORKNCE, ARIZONA. NOVEMBER 18, 1893. ..... TRMS. ..OneYear $100 Six Months 1.50 fiingle Copies Five Cents Entered at the Floronce postoftics as kecond class mutter. The Tribune is open to any official .or individual who may consider liim ,self misrepresented in its columns. r tbe Republicans can extract any .comfort out of the fact that a majority of 50,000 voters in the state of Ohio were against Judge Nash (the Banna candidate) they are welcome to all they can (jet ont of it. Mayor Ganz experienced a cliaDge of heart, and has concluded to allow the taxpayers of Phoenix to vote on the question of issuing bonds for esver3 and waterworks. At the same meeting the Bennett and Murphy ad ditions were taken into the city limits. Whilb the Florence Tkibcse will not waver one iota from the grand principles advocated by the democratic party in its Chicago platform', it wants it distinctly understood that it will favor the election of men who are true to their trust, and if such men are not nominated by the democrats they will not get the support of this paper. Recently some $800,000 worth of fctook in the United Verde mine was sold ia New York on a valuation of $90,000,000 for the whole mine. When it is considered that tbe United Verde company , only pays taxes oa about (400,000-worth of property, and that the entire tax-roll of the territory foots up but $30,000,000 it will be under stood why the tax rate is so high. The people of Pinal county have no objection to having their official busi ness transacted by deputies, so lon; as that business is properly attended to. It is neglect of duty as plainly laid down in the law that they object to, and if an official is absent from the ter ritory on his own private business, i without leave, at the same time neglecting his official duties, it would -seem to be the plain duty of the super visors to declare his office vacant and -appoint some one who will attend to it Tb treasury department has sent out notices to the banks of tbe coun try that owing to an unusual demand for silver coin no further advances of silver dollars will be made to banks except in the redemption of silver certificates, the present supply in the sub-treasuries being held for that pur pose. In this connection it is a not able fact also that silver certificates are found to be very scarce and not ayailable for getting silver dollars. A dearth of subsidiary silver is also re ported by the banks. All the counties of Arizona (except Final) are now publishing lists of prop erty sold to the Territory upon which taxes have not been paid, as tbe law requires. Tbe attention of the super visors and district attorney has been called to this matter repeatedly, and whether they consider themselves greater than the law, or whether they haven't had time, or sufficient dep uties, tbe fact remains that the law hasn't been complied with, and the interests of tbe county have been al lowed to suffer. A gentleman was here from Tucson recently for the pur pose of baying some property sold to the territory, but when he found the law had not been complied with, he expressed the greatest surprise at the lax manner in -which public business had been conducted, and of course re fused to invest. What surprised him most was the fact that the canal com pany was allowed to go for years and years without paying a cent of taxes, at the same time grinding the farmers ,down to the last cent. Said he: "If . your officers bad done their duty, either the thousands of dollars taxes owing by the canal company would have been paid, or the farmers would have bad an opportunity to buy the property from the territory." There are sev eral patented mines, with mills and hoisting works, sold year after year to the territory, but the preliminary con ditions necessary to vest the title in the territory have never been complied with. The supervisors, through their clerk, have never given notice of in tention to apply for a deed and no affidavit has been filed in the tax col lector's office as the law requires. , And thus the matter stands. But the peojilu of P.rtal county are geltiu very weary. POWER OF THE WEST. Senator Carter Says Not a Csnt Goes for Rivers and Harbors unless the West Gots Storage Reser voirs. At the closing session of the Nation al Irrigation Congress at Missoula, Montana, President Reid introduced Senator Carter as one of tbe men who has always recognized the justice of the claims of the West. Senator Car ter expressed his regrets that he had not been here all during the sessioil of the congress, but explained it by stat ing he had been to California to wel come a regiment that in IB months had engaged in 17 battles and had never re treated an inch. It is a fact that the real fighting force of the volunteer army has come from the states West of the Mississippi. Senator Carter pre sented the regrets of Governor Smith at his inability to be present. The question of irrigation, Senator Carter said, is not a local one. It af fects Massachusetts as much as it does Montana. All of the land that will produce crops without irrigation is j taken up. There is no land left vacant j but timber land and arid land. It ia no longer possible for the poor emi grant to come West and make a home for himself. It follows that capital must precede future settlement of the West. It means that the limit has been reached of the railway business and of development. It was thought a while ago that the solution of this problem lay in ceding the public lands to the several states. However, it soon became apparent that interstate diffi culties would arise, and that lack of means on the part of states would pre vent development. Then it was asked why should not the government store the waste waters of winter of use in the dry months. The- question of con stitutional right having been settled, there Is no legal obstacle in tbe way of carrying out these plans. This part oftheciuntry is entitled to its share of annual appropriations for river and harbor improvement. It so happens that in congress the States of tbe arid belt have the povrer to prevent any further appropriation of this kind un less some part of it goes to the con struction of storage reservoirs at the headwaters of rivers. In this way the appropriation can be compelled. In this connection occurs the ques tion of a market for oor products. Mr. Carter then made an argument in favor of tbe Asiatic market that is de veloping for our benefit. "This will prevent opposition from the East, which is jealous of any de velopment that will interfere with its markets. Eastern manufacturers and shippers should be made to understand that we need their assistance and that success in this line means larger mar kets for their products. We do not ask this as suppliants, but as men demand ing our rights. If the arid states help pay for dredging harbors, the coast states should help to build reservoirs for us. The federal senate has a ma jority in favor of this work. The stub born opposition is in the lower house. It must be overcome, and it can be overcome by education and interesting the people who elect congressmen. "One of the greatest benefits which will result from the reclamation of these now sterile plains is the fact that it will build up homes for thousands of sturdy, honest citizens, such as these Western states have sent to the war; men who can always be depended upon," Senator Carter expressed gratifica tion over the fact that the next meet ing is to be held in Chicago. He re peated tbe arguments advanced by the friends of Chicago at the meeting of the session and expressed the belief that this next meeting will be the last one that it will be necessary to bold in order to induce congress to undertake the work we have been urging for so long. Mr. Carter was greeted with repeated applause. Ex-Governor McCord of Arizona offered a resolution of thanks to Senator Carter for his address and indorsing the work of Senators Carter, Warren, Shoup and other seoators. This was adopted unanimously.. George H. Maxwell moved that a vote of thanks be extended to Professor Newell, Professor Whitney, Professor Mead and others, who have interested themselves in irrigation sufficiently to come to this congress. This motion was carried without opposition. The congress then adjourned. Tub case of defaulting Treasurer Brady being now before the Court, the Tbibujie, as in duty bound, has no comments to make further than to in timate to other county officials, in the language of holy writ, "He that is without sin cast the first stone." If Mr. Brady, or any other conntyofB- cial, is guilty of violating the law, the Tbibuhb hopes to see him brought to justice. Every friend of the national irriga tion system, whereby government reservoirs are to be constructed in tbe arid west, should have a warm place in his heart for the Florence Tribune, as that paper has been one of the most active in advocacy of that method of reclaiming the desert. Phoenix En-tcrr-rii!!. Oso. Atkinson, ex-supervisor of Pima county, and a prominent Republican of Arizona, in a letter to the Oasis says: I will help sustain the present administra tion in maintaining: the Aftiorieure- tug wherevr it has been planted, but while the government is spending many millions of dollars In endeavoring to Improve the con dition of alien races abroad, I hope that it will spend a few millions in reclaiming that portion of the public domain known as the ".arid West" and In keeping; it and Its water supply arid distribution for the benefit of the whole people, including the forty mil lions of produoers remaining- at home. Mr. Atkinson's head is very level on this proposition. GkS. MlI.ES will spend to-morrow in Tucson as a guest of the Society of Arizona Pioneers. The people of Arizona have a warm spot in their hearts for the commanding General of tbj army for having rid the territory of Geronimo and his cut-throat band of Apaches. Andrew Cahxkoie, the millionaire iron master, offers to erect a $25,000 library building in Tucson, if tb city will donate the ground, and, maintain the institution at an expense Of not less than $2,000 a year. vVreck of the Charleston. Manila, Nov. 14. Details regarding the grounding of thecruiserCbarleston show that the she struck an uncharter ed coral reef ten miles east of Kama guin island. Her stern was almost en tirely submerged und her bow almost out of the water. After the first efforts to raise her the officers feared that she might slide off because of the heavy sea and then abandoned the at tempt to save her. They hurried to the boats and rowed anay, prepared to fight for a landing with two Colt guns, 134 rifles and tea days rations. Before the boats put off the' breech blocks of the cannon were removed. Two hours after the crew got away tbe Charleston struck. It Is impossible to save anything. Chamberlain's Pain Balm Cures Others, Why Not You?

A New York d'upatch siys : "The stock of the United Verde cop per mines of Yavapai county, Arizona, to-day reached the top notch of mine values of the world. Eight hundred thousand dollars worth of stock was put on the market to-day and found a ready sale at the enormous valuation of $90,000,000 for the property. The mine is by far the richest in the world and every dollar's worth of its stock could be sold here at that valuation. An examination of tbe books of the company discloses the fact that the mine would be a great bargain at that sum, and a representative of a German syndicate is here for the purpose of purchasing every dollar's worth of that stock that is put on the market, and it is not a question of price at all, apparently. The mine during the past six years has paid net some $39,- 000,000 and there is thirty years ore in sight, according to scientific measure ments."
