A Participant in the Famous Raid Stopping in Phoenix. (From the Phoenix Republican.l Mr. A. J. De Silva a London mining engineer, is in the city, having come to the territory in the interest of the Min ers' Trust Company of British Colum bia, looking up copper, Mr. De Silva was in South Africa a long time with the British and South African Mining company and participated in the Jami son raid. He left the country soon after that unfortunate event. He watt well acquainted with John Hays Ham mond, the American engineer, ,wio also left as soon as possible after the Boers decided not to, bill him aitl turned him loose, Mr. De Siiva also knew Dr. Jamison weir and said that the raid was undertakes with the full knowledge, consent and approval of that three-eyed EnglUa gentleman, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, who had secretly guaranteed it British support as soon as it was well under way, As all the world knows, it never got a fair start, but was cut off in its youth and beauty. Mr. De Silva was asked how many of the 600 men engaged in this raid imagined it could possibly succeed ; how few of them understood the warlike character of the Boers and their deadly marksmanship, of which an exhibition had been made as late as in 18S4. There was great confidence, Mr. De Silva 6;iid, throughout tbe whole expedition, especially in the American contingent of 200, made up of the bravest dare-devils on earth. They were skilful and fearless gamb lers and did not hesitate to deal iu amalgam, knowing the punishment that would be visited upon them if they were caught and they were more frequently caught than not. Their headquarters were at the American hotel in Johannesburg and it was there that the plans for the raid were brought to completion. Though these Americans feared neither fate nor death and inspired the expedition with confidence, they knew little about war, nothing at all about Boera and even made the English forget what tbey had painfully learned ten years before. The raid was planned with the great est secrecy. The Boers had received no intimation of it until it bad passed over the border, but then they acted with the greatest promptitude. Tne expedition came to an end at Cliveden. Forty of the raiders died in a minute, and those who could get away did so. 'Ilow many Boers were there?" Mr. De SHva was asked. "We thought there were about a million," was the replvj though we afterwards learned there were only a thousand. It was like I lately wrote a London friend about Arizona: "A creeping thing, hisses or rattles from every bush.' " Mr. De Silva believes that South Af. rica ia the greatest mining country in the world and "when this cruei war is over," he will go back and start in where he left off, to help Dr. Jamison whip Kruger. 4l?

In our last week's, issue we printed a late dispatch' recording the settle ment of the litigation between the Wilson Creek and Independence com panies. Only meagre details were In cluded, but these have proved sub stantially correct. During the week the columns of the local press have teemed with dissatisfaction and threat ened lawsuits over the terms of the settlement. It is only right to state that most of the dissatisfaction, em an ated from those who bought the stocks purely as a gamble and lost their money. The compromise was brought about by the formation of a new company and the allocation of shares in it among the various interested parties. The Independence T. & M. company's share in it is, comparatively speaking, not a very large one, as it amounts to only a trifle over 25 per cent of the whole. The exact figures are 656,250 shares. The new company which is to take over the properties of the Indepeu dence T. & M., Wilson Creek Consolid ated M. & M., etc., is known as tbe In dependence Consolidated Gold Mining company. It has a capitalization of 2,500,000 shares of a par value of $1 each and has been incorporated under the laws of Wyoming. The new com pany will have no stock treasury re serve, all of the shares having been distributed among the owners of the various interests involved, and as pay ment for the debts that have been contracted in carrying on litigation and as commission for the compromise having been effected. . The Independence T. & M. company retains its cash in the treasury, amount iug to about $50,000, and receives a farther bum of cash sufficient to enable ii he we Was there ever so high and decisive at test of the baking powders as, that by the Govern--ment Chemists at the World's Columbian Fair? The tests then made by the official experts showed that Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder' was the purest, strongest, most healthful of all the baking powders exhibited, and a diploma and medal were awarded accordingly It is such testimony as this which has established the use of Dr Price's Cream Baking Powder' in homes where pure food and economy are appreciated. PRICE BAKING POWDER CO CHICAGO Note. The alum baking powders, which are those sold at lower prices, were excluded from consid eration at this great competitive test because they are deemed unreliable and unwholesome. it to pay all its debts and obligations and pay the dividend of four per cent per share on the capital stock. This will be paid Friday, August 10 to all stockholders of record. Later the stockholders can get their stock ex changed for that in the new company on the basis of 525 shares for every 1,000, or 52 per cent of the original. Another point secured by the- In dependence T. & M. company is a re- ease against it and its shareholders for any past extraction of ore or dividends paid, .The negotiations have been under way during tbe entire- month of July, and- were finally brought to a head by the Reed F". Hamlin Invest ment company of Colorado Springs. The directors of the Independence T. & M. company took a very strong stand for as a large a proportion of the new capital as they could secure, and it was finally upon the urgent ad vice of all the attorneys who have bad charge of the varicus law suits, that a trade was closed urv A letter of advice from the-attorneys of the Independence T. & M. company reads as follows : "To the Independence- Town and Min ing company: "Gentlemen, Seferring to the pro position of this date, made to you by the Independence Consolidated Gold Mining company, for the purchase of your property, we would respectfully say t "We are familiar with the-litigation now. existing and threatened, affecting your titles, which litigation is of a very serious character. "The proposition submitted is in tended to compromise, and finally terminate,, all litigation, and after consideration of same, and in view of the facts affecting the controversies', pending and prospective,, we would say that in our opinion it is to tbe in terest of the Independence Town and Mining company, and of. its several stockholders, that said proposition of purchase be accepted. Very respectfully yours, (Signed). "J. F. Vaile, "Blackmejr & McAllister."' The new company has the following directors:. Eben Smith, president ; W. S. Mont gomery, vice president; B. H. Reid, secretary A. D. Craigue, treasurer ; W. P. Dunham, general manager. Fred Johnson, the present superinten dent of the mine, will continue in the employ of the company for the time be ing, at any rate,.and Lee S. Wood, M. E., of Goldfield, will be appointed con sulting engineer of the property. The Wilson Creek company owned, outside of the territory conflicting with the Hull City placer, some seven or eight acres of ground which goes, of course, into the new company. This gives the new Independence Consolid ated Gold Mining company a total of from 47 to 43 acres of patented, terri tory. The well at A. C. McQueen's (Mesa) is down 1,170 feet, and. is still a talc day formation. Mr. - McQueen has gone back to Iron Springs but. Mr. Halstrom has orders to "get water or bore through the earth.

IBrom the Phoenix Bcpublican.J Mr. J. A. Johnson, a prominent and wealthy manager of sugar plantations in the vicinity of Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, arrived in Phoenix ytsterday morning and met his father, Mr. Wit Ham Johnson, whom he had not seen for many years. Together they will visit at Jerome, Prescott and other points in Arizona, and then return to gether to Honolulu. Their " meeting was aa- interesting,, and at the same time a pat hetic one. Thirteen years ago the elder Mr Johnson ca me to Arizona, suffering from asthma and in a serious condi tion. All of his time since then he has spent in this territory and gradually has recovered his health. At the re union yesterday the father met a man in his prime. Not expecting his arrival so soon, the father did not know the son. The latter did not disclose his identity for some time, and face to face with the parent talked for a quarter of an hour, leaving his relation unknown to the elder man. Finally, after the father bad exhausted the list of all the old friends in his memory, the son dis closed his kiusliip and the parent wept for joy. Mr. William Johnson has been in. Phoenix for several months and has made many friends here in tbe meantime. The younger Mr. Johnson believes that Honolulu is the most prosperous and promising city in the world, in proportion to its size. De says that the population is about 40,000 and growing with marvelous rapidity. All branches of trade are represented there, the sugar industry being tbe chief business. Rice culture is another branch which employs many men and much capital. Japanese and Chinese labor is used almost exclusively. The co-operative plan is coming into gen eral use, and proving most satisfactory to the employes and employers. Since Hawaii came under territorial rule there has been a tremendous increase in all kinds of business and a heavy influx of capital. The climate of the islands, Mr. Johnson says, is delight- iui ana Deautnui. xnere are manv Arizona people there, and he is per sonally acquainted with the Rev, George H.
