Letter from Governor Murphy Defining
Office of the Goveknok, )
Phoenix, January 33, 1900.)
Mr. C. D. Reppy, Florence, Arizona.
Sib: Not long since Mr. E. B. Gage
of Prescott showed me a letter in which
you stated that you bad received infor
mation from a member of the Geologi
cal Survey at Washington that I was
opposing the construction of the
Buttes reservoir, and that the matter
was very important to the interests of
Pinal county. You also stated in your
letter that I was unfriendly to you,
and that you did not understand why.
Waiving all reference to your fre
quent editorial attacks on me, I am not
unfriendly to any citizen or to any in
terest in Arizona. I recognize the fact
that many people seem to think it
their bounden duty to assail public of
ficials, justly or 'unjustly, whenever
they from hearsay or irresponsible
testimony imagine that tbeir commu
nity or individual Interests are being in
jured. I have frequently thought of
putting yon right in regard to some
matters in which you have been very
In the first place, I have" never op
posed the construction of the Buttes
reservoir ; on the contrary, I was large
ly instrumental in securing the first
appropriation. I have never by word
nor written line opposed the construc
tion of reservoirs by the general gov
ernment in specific, meritorious cases,
and I am heartily in favor of the San
Carlos dam; and notwithstanding the
fact that I have always favored the
cession of the public lands under suit
able restrictions, I have never opposed
federal aid where it would be just. I
have been unjustly assailed on this
question. People assume that be
cause I favor cession I have been op
posed to federal aid. This assumption
has been outrageously unfounded.
In my late visit to Washington, in
stead of opposing the Buttes reservoir
I made an argument in its favor, but
was told that the Geological Survey
had abandoned it, and I shall continue
to do what I can in support of that
proposition if it is again taken np, and
in favor of an appropriation for a dam
and reservoir at the San Carlos site. I
desire to say to you, however, for your
own information, that if any member
nf the Geological Survey made the
statement to you that I was or am op
posing the construction of reservoirs
in the Territory he stated an absolute
When you look into this matter, Mr.
Reppy, you will find that perhaps for
political reasons, or actuated by arrant
demagogism, people have circulated
many unjust and false statements
about me and in regard to my action
in this matter, which heretofore I have
not felt it necessary to deny.

Near Needles is a deposit of silt that
. has hardened into a soapy appearing
. stone. The deposit is about one hun
dred feet in thickness. Samples from
it have given results of from $4.50 to
$48 in gold to the ton. ' The rock readi
ly dissolves in water, but as the gold
is not in a free state it is not observ
able in a horn spoon. Tests are being
made and if satisfactory the big deposit
will be worked.
Monday afternoon, abont 3 o'clock,
Judge Joe B. Harvey died of injuries
received Saturday night. The Judge
was on his way to his office Saturday
night when he missed the steps lead
ing from the terrace above the office
and fell over an embankment ; it is sup'
posed that he struck a broken post at
the bottom of the embankment. Four
ribs were broken, and internal injuries
received. Drs. Hart and Wood were
immediately called and attended the
injuries. Before the final end his
suffering was severe in the extreme.

The Latest X Ray Invention
Is the Endoscope, which is for the
purpose of examining the interior of
the stomach. It is claimed that with
this instrument the treatment of
stomach troubles will be revolution
ized, as it locates the - cause of
disease. With due respect to science,
however, would state that the causes
of stomach troubles have been known
for the past fifty years, and likewise
their cure, which is Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters, a medicine that has many
imitators, but no equals. It cures
dyspepsia, indigestion, biliousness,
constipation, nervousness, insomnia.
It also prevents malaria, fever and
ague, and keeps the bowels regular.
When not feeling right, take a dose.
It is the standard medicine of the
American people. Look for Private

January 10th, 1900.
It is just beooming generally known
that the old Tombstone mines are
about to be opened up and operations
begun anew. To the old timer who
was in Tombstone in her palmy days
this intelligence will be gladly re
ceived as few mines have the romantic
aud stirring history that this old min
ing town has. The water is now be
ing drained off preparatory to begin
ning work and the citizens of that old
mining camp are thoroughly exercised
over the prospective mining boom. It
is sincerely to be hoped that this an
cient land mark of the mining indus
try of the southwest will again awake
from its long silence and once more
make itself felt around the world.
