"It is apparent that something must be
done to provide water for the Iudians. In
order to demonstrate our ability to govern
tiew people we must show a better record
for those now in our care." Prof, F. H.
Newell, in a lecture in Washington, Dec.
27, 1S08.
One of the mysteries of Florence
; amenities is how some people who
i "woidd'nt take the Tiiibunk for any
" thing," cm yet read it each week and
" then do more than their bliareof abuse
of its editor.
Tue very newest and most exclusive
club iu all clubdom is an appendicitis
club, having its birthplace iu Cleveland,
Ohio. Only people who have been
operated upon for- that disease are
. eligible for membership. Ohio may be
the step mother of Presidents as it has
been called, but there can be no doubt
about the full relationship to cranks.
Tub only serious objection made to
Mr. C. D. Towne as Vice President on
.. the Democratic ticket is that he ig too
. recent a Republican. lint he may be
recent and yet be as far away in princi
ple from modern Republicanism as any
. Democrat who counts from Jefferson.
. The man who believe in and upholds
the principles of the grand old party
1 of Lincoln's administration, is very
apt to be abused by a class found in
: both parties, be he named Democrat,
or not.

i Fob the last ten days rations of
, beans, wheat etc., have been issued to
f the Indians upon the Sacaton reserva
. lion, this being the first installment of
'the provisions provided by Congress
In its appropriation of $33,000 for these
dependents upon the government, a
.dependency which should never have
been forced upon them. The Indians
. are willing and able to support them
' selves if the water which should be as
free as the air were supplied them by
: this generous government. The princi'
; pie of giving a man a chance to work
for a living is so much better than that
, of tbe mistaken charity which gives
him a living gratuitously.
Tab California law that all divorced
persons shall wait one whole year be
fore they wed again in making profit
able business for Reno, Nevada. Only
about a dozen miles beyond the State
line, the divorcees flee across this in-
' visible barrier, and evade the law of
' their own state and return to live
there nuder the comfortable feeling
i that they are really married. The
Examiner's ' statistics show that over
' one thousand divorced Californians
.have thus laughed at the restriction of
. the state law within the past three
i years. Bishop Johnson's saying that
California is a state practising con
l pecutive polygamyis well put indeed.
The Democrats of the Territory have
met in convention, struggled resolnted

A resolution was passed uoani
piously recommending the holding of
the nest democratic territorial conven

The convention instructed the dele

extended to Chairman Ellin wood and

Comparatively Little More Work on Terri
torial Building.
From the Phoenix Republican.
Despite the hindrances in the way of
its completion, the uapilol is nearly
finished, iu fact several of the rooms,
notably the executive office, are ready
for use at once, hud the $130,000 build
ing been formally accepted by the
board of commissioners, and were the
territorial officials in a hurry to get
in their new home.
Practically all of the exterior work ia
completed. The roofing was finished
last week, and all that remains is the
placing on the top of the dome the
zinc statute of Justice, which will
arrive this week from Ohio.
The wood floors are all laid, and on
the first floor the tiling in the rotunda
is all dowu and partially so in the cor
ridors. The kalsomining is all com
pleted and the painting of tbe wood
work is ended on the second. The
moulding in the top of the rotunda is
a difficult piece of work and will be
finished in a few days.
The plastering, kalsomining and
painting, throughout tbe building, is
particularly good, and in faet all the
work is noticeable for its excellence and
the evidence of close attention to de
tails. The wood is especially fine and
was gathered from five states and ter
ritories, Texas, Oregon, Arkansas, Ari
zona and California. The oak is all
quarter-sawed, and shows especially
well in the ballustrades to be placed
around the rotunda.
According to contractor Thomas
Lovell, the greatest obstacle which be
has had to overcome has been a scarci
ty of material, and of good mechanics,
especially stone masons.
- Since the. beginning of the building,
over a year ago, prices of all materials
have in some intances almost doubled,
in fact, the rise has been so great that
the builders aver that they will make
nothing on their contract.
Mr. Lovell bays that he will easily
finish his work within five weeks, and
as all the wires are in place, the 210
lights can be placed in a few hoars, and
all that will be necessary will be the
laying of carpets and moving in tbe
Narrow Escape of C. W. Foster Form
Terrible Death.
From the Phoenix Enterprise.
C. W. Foster, traveling agent of the
Arizona Loan & Savings company has
just had a narrow escape from, death
on the desert. Tuesday morning Foster
hired a horse and buggy from Stevens'
livejy stable and stated that he wanted
to drive around the city. As he was a
regular patron of the stable no atten
tion was paid to the fact when he did
not show up that night or the next.
Late last evening a message was re
ceived from Florence, stating that
Foster had been picked up in an almost
demented condition on the desert about
tea miles from the town suffering
terribly from thirst and hunger, and
had been brought to Florence where
he was receiving care. Tbe horse had
died of thirst. No other particulars as
to the length of time that he might
have been lost or how be was lost
have been received.
.The distance from Mesa to Florence
is forty-four miles. The only watering
place between these points on tbe
most commonly traveled road is Desert
Wells, fifteen miles the other side of
Mesa. Anyone who has traveled over
the desert can easily understand how
an inexperienced traveler may miss
such an important place as Desert
Wells. Still the twenty-eight miles
distance between the Wells and Flor
ence affords an ample stretch for man
or beast to perish from want of water.
This is Sad.
From the Williams News. -The
carpenters and builders make
so much racket in Williams these days
that people are compelled to get be
yond the town limits to be able to
hear each other in conversation.

Kelvin Graphically and Accurately Des
cribed by a Correspondent In
the Field.
(Special to the Florence Tribuke.
There is really something peculiarly
charming about Kelvin, Arizona's new
est great mining town, especially ia
this beautiful fragrant month of May
when the desert cacti is in full bloom
and the birds and the bumble-bees are
singing the praises of the wisdom of
the great designer aud creator of the
Kelvin is not really a tough place at
all, we have lots of good people here
who never forget to say their morning
prayers or sing their matin lay, and
who are really more kind and con
siderate and unselfish than many peo
ple who live in London, New York or
Floreuee. Kelvin has of course a full
quota f saloons as is customary in all
new mining towns, but the brainy fel
lows behind the bars are generally
about as good morally, geographically
and perpendicularly as the average
people who make greater pretensions
to goodness. . :
The English pen lletnen who are here
are nice svvewt cultured end refined
and give great eclat to Kelvin society.
They are doing the nice kind sweet
act toward everybody as best they
can under the new pioneer draw-backs
and difficulties that present them
selves, they are earnest and honest in
all their endeavors, and doing more
good for Pinal county than has ever
been done before. MessrsHill, Wise,
Truman and Foley deserve special
mention in that respect. Mrs. Uutchlns
is also doing a nice Red Cross work all
by herself among the lowly and dis
couraged and her name will be written
for it on the book of gold in the sweet-by-and-by.
There is a great field to work ia for
missionary endeavor. Tbe "-harvest is
ripe but the laborers are, few.. We
need a church and a Sabbath school,
and if some one don't come soon who
is conscientious and capable of con
ducting it all, I presume I will have to
do it myself as I have learned to adopt
myself to almost any emergency since
I have been in the West except that of
going on a spree in Kelvin, at that of
course I draw the line.
Yours truly,
Joe Mulhatton.
P. S. It is not considered in good
taste to write a post-script, yet in a
great emergency I feel that I am some
what excusable to add that Mr. T. J.
Meehan and Bill Zeot told me a few
minutes ago that Mr. Hockett was go
ing to run for Mayor, of Kelvin, and
that the town is about to be incorpor
ated. .-.- -
News has just come in that it is now
definitely known that a body of Sul
phide in Kay mine over 400 feet wide
is blocked out and that there ia no
question about it being a success
in every sense of thj word. A rail
road is also assured between now and
December, but tbe exact route is not
to be made public for various reasons.

Pilina Up.
1 From the Tucson Star.
The cyanide companies operating at
Mammoth seem to be in a peck of trou
ble, judging by the numerous entries
observable on the books in charge of
Court Clerk Hoover and his assistant,
Lewis Davis. It may truly be said
that the attorneys are giving these
offcials lots of trouble, that is to say
work, this spring and the last entry
is an exemplification, of this fact. These
tailings have value, as the various
suits entered wnuld imply. Every
body is making money out of it, this
series of law suits, so that it may be
termed an ill wind blowing in the
vicinity of Tucson thus early, in 1900.
The latest is the filing of a snit as
signed by the Mammoth-Collins Gold
Mining & Milling Co., parties to the
first part of the first contract made on
that vast pile of tailings, waste as they
were formerly designated. In early
1898 the St. Louis Gold Recovery com
pany, parties of the second part, Enter
ed into an agreement to work the 150
000 tons of. tailings in sight, and , pay
the Mammoth-Collins M. & M. Co.
a certain royalty out of the Clean up.
It appears that there was an under
standing that the parties of the second
part were to get seventy-five per cent
nut of the tailings. It further appears
from tbe complaint, that they did not
get 50 per cent.
The M.-C. Co. do not go into court on
this score but assign their suit to the
Mammoth Cyaniding company, a dis
tinct and separate corporation. The lat
ter, a suit to recover, vne of many now
on file, placed there through their at
torney. Try the new remedy for eostiveness,

How To
Gain Flesh
Persons have been known to
gain a pound a day by taking
an ounce of SCOTT'S EMUL
SION. It is strange, but it often
Somehow the ounce produces
the pound; it seems to start the
digestive machinery going prop
erly, so that the patient is able
to digest and absorb his ordinary
food, which he could not do be

is made.
A certain amount of flesh is
necessary for health; if you have
not got it you can get it by

as in winter, and if you are thriving upon
