vv V i THE FLORENCE TRIBUNE mil.lXHED KVEKT SATTRDil. BY FLORENCE PUBLISHING COMPANY. C'H.ofl. II. KEhi-Y, EUitur. l-'l-OKtWE, ARIZONA. OCTGliftt W. 1X1. TERMS: One Year fS.1'0 8U Months 1.50 Three Months .... .T5 Single Coiiies 00 I NTtREO AT THE M8T OFFICS AS SECONO-CtASS MATTER 'IT is apparent that something must be done tut provide water for the Indians. In order to demonstrate our ability to govern new peoples we must show a better record for those r.ow in our care." Prof. F. H. Lowell, in a lecture in Washington, Bco. i7,lW. L'hudibtiult the first work in irrigation which the government should undertake is tbe construction of a dam on the Gila River at San Carlos, In Arizona, because this im provement would not only bring under cul tivation a large area of arid land for the i.se of white settlers, but would also relieve the urgent needs of thousands of friendly Indians, w ho are now in a starving condi tion because the water upon which they have been dependent for centuries has been diverted by white settlers above them. This improvement would be not only a strik ing object lesson of the advantnge of irriga tion en a large scale, but also an act of mercy and justice. Los Angelos Times Editorial, Feb. 12, 1901. The report of the removal of Gover nor Murphy and Chief Justice Street vras premature. They will serve out their terms, after which Colonel Brodie will probably be. Governor arid Mr. Jamiesoo chief justice. , Statehood is assured. "Both cen tral committees have held meetings in my office," was the cheering news that vras sent from Florence, where Tom Weedin met with Bill Beard's proxy and appointed himself and Bill as delegates to the statehood conven tion. .Mrcii has been said and written about President Roosevelt appointing a democrat to a Federal judgeship in Alabama; but it cow is learned that the creature was a democrat only in nam. Ho voted for McKinley and Roosevelt, and Teddy was. but paying a political debt. A. J. Bradley, a Phoenix under taker, lost a fee of $265 for embalming a Portland, Or., brewer, who came to Arizona to die. The widow man dsmused the" express company and compelled it to give up the body. This is another of our infant industries that needs protection. Col. S. M. McCowas, superintendent of the Phoenix Indian school, recently paid a visit to the San Carlos Apache Indian agency, and sums up as a result of his observations the following: "That army officers are not marvellous ly successful as Indian agents is proven by the condition of tbe San Carlos agency," showing "a monument of incompetency, or worse." The Tribune fully confirms this after many years of careful observation . All the big mines of Tombstone are united under the name of the Tomb stone Consolidated Mining Company, Limited, with Mr. Frank M. Murphy as president and Mr. E. B. Gage as general manager. Tbe four-compartment shaft has nearly reached water level and the big pumps are on the ground. Arrangements have been made for a railroad from Fairbank, and reduction works will be at tbe mines. Tbe Tribune predicts that Tombstone will be the most important mining camp in the territory within three years. The efforts of Crowninshield and other Sampson flunkies of the naval ring to prove that Admiral Schley was frightened at tbe battle of Santiago have ended in dismal failure. The tory of two soldiers under fire for the first time is applicable in this case. Said one to the other, "why are you so pale, are you scared?" "You bet 1 am," was thereply, "if you were half at badly scared as I am you'd run like bell!" It is only necessary to remark that Schley was there and Sampson wasn't, and even if Schley was scared, Cervera didn't know it. The manifold advantages of state hood have been for years a subject of much concern with the Tribuke, and no one could be more glad to note the un animous sentiment among our people in favor of Arizona assuming the dignity of a State. While this is so, it is to be regretted that the three-up democratic 'politicians of Florence, who, by grace of the appointive power, seem to be in control for the time being, could not be broad enough to go outside of their little clique in naming delegates to the statehood convention which assembles iu Phoenix to-day. At sih'Ii a tme me.V bury their personal unituosilies. It can be said to the credit of the big railroad magnates that tliey all favor a natiooal system of irrigation, and tat j they have some influence do one can 'deny. While iu Salt I, the the otber j liay lieorge J Gould gave it as liis opinion that wnul is uiosl urgently needed, not only in Dtuh but through out the arid States of the West, is the estab isbraent cf immense reservoirs for storing water to be used in reclaim ing great areas in the valleys and deserts. This, he said, would solve the question of irrigation, and to ac complish this end al! the arid Stales should work together. Thk Mining Reporter mentions a matter of muoh importance to prospect ors when it say: Assessment work must be performed on an . unpatented claim. It is no ex cuse for the owner to say that he paid some one else to do the work and that the latter failed so to do, even although he made an affidavit that the assessment work had been done. The claim is subject to relooatiou and the new locator cannot be deprived of his possessory right acquired through valid location and the negligence of the former owner. 1 he latter s sole remedy is against the dishonest employee. As a rule, the man employed to do assessment work has no re sources, so that practioally speaking the de frauded employer has no remedy. Czoi.oosz, the assassin, will be elec trocuted at 7 a. m. Tuesday, Octo ber 20, at Auburn prison. THEY "TOUCHED" THE COLONEL. Capt. Colbert Says Roosevelt's Boys Could Always Borrow His Honey' and Call Him "Teddy." Kansas Cut, Oct. 20. Capt. W. C. Colbert, a deputy sheriff in tbe Chicka- " Nation and a rough rider with Col Roosevelt, is here visiting a clergyman relative. Three years agohe was lying on the field of San Juan Hill, with four bullets holes through his body, one of them through his left lung. The surgeons looked at him when he was brought in and passed on. They said atteution to him would be merely taking their time from someone whom they might save; that hist case was hopeless. "But I did live, didn't I?" said the ex-captain last night, and tbe big six foot man laughed as ha told how it all happened. "You bet I think a whole lot of Roosevelt," aaid be. "The doctors had done nothing at all for me when ho came along and asked me what I was doing there. I suggested that be p ill down tbe sheet and see. He did ao, and five minutes later you ought to have heard the picturesque language with which be addressed those surgeons. They visited me twice a day after that." Colbert laughs when he speaks about the army discipline that existed in Roosevelt's regiment. "I guess there wasn't much," said be. "Tbe men had come in to fight and it was hard to make them take kindly to anything else. Many is the time I have seen tho enlisted men come into the colonel's tent and tell 'Teddy,' as they called him, that they were going uptown and ask to borrow some money, and they always got it, too." Discuss a New Railroad Project. From the Phoenix Gazette. Messrs. George Marslon, H. P. Wood and 8. W. Ferguson, of the San Diego chamber of commerce, were informally the guests of tbe local board of trade last night. The gentlemen are here for the purpose of lookingover Arizona and incidentally feel the pulse of the people regarding the extending of the San Diego and Yuma railroad to Phoe nix. No proposition was made by the visitors, but the development of Ariz ona was discussed. . . Tbe visitors regard the proposed road from Phoenix to Benson as a certainty. Already tbe Phelps-Dodge company has a road from Benson to Bisoee and then to El Paso, which will connect with the Rock Island. When the road from San Diego to Yuma is completed it will leave only a small strip of road necessary to a trans-conUneotal Una. Should this road be built, Phoenix would soon be on the main line of a trans-continental road. It was a very interesting sub ject and the conference between tbe visitors and the board of trade dir ec tors lasted until a late hour. A man in Missouri had five daughters, four of thetfi married to men named Short, Brown, Poor and Little. The fifth was united last week to a man by the name of Hogg. At the wedding supper the old gentleman said to the guests! "I have taken pains to educate my daughters that they might act well their part in life and do honor to my family. I find that all my pains, cares and expectations have come at last to nothing but a Poor Little Short Brown Hogg." A young fellow in Preseott who thought he had won the heart of a young widow, asked for her band in marriage. She asked him, "what is the difference between myself and Mrs. Smith's cow?' He naturally re plied, "well, I don't know." "Then," replied the widow, "you bad better marry '.he cow." ANOTHER RAILROAD Will Ba Built From Salomorwilla to Clifton. President William Garland of the Gila Valley, Globe & Northern railway, asd Mr. I. McAvoy, Southern Pacific, engineer, from Tucson, left Solomon ville Sunday on horseback, accom panied by Charles F. Solomon, to go over the proposed route for a new rail road from Solomonviile to Clifton, say a the Bisbee Eeview. Mr. Garland has already gathered sufficient information concerning tbe possibility of such a line, and there is little doubt about the road being built, which will make of Solo monviile an important railroad center. It is believed that the local tratficalone between this valley and tbe mining country in the east part of the county would justify the building of this road, which would be le&s than forty miles in leugth. A Rich Gold Strike. Ceipplk Creek, (Colo.) Oct. 22. The greatest strike of gold in the history of Cripple Creek camp, and probably in the world, was made in the Elkton mine to-day. Drifting at the 700-foot level, 100 feet from the main shaft, the miners struck what seems to be a dome or great crater of fabulous extent, and tbe richness of which is beyond belief. A ledge of florin talc, five feet wide, has been opened, and neither wall has been found. This fairly glitters with sylvaoite and rich quartz. Tbe vein radiates from a large chimney, in which is a lake, tbe bottom of which is unfathomable. The dome is thirty feet in diameter. Tbe roof and sides show that the matter has beeu burned all the way from yellow to deep black. The decomposed matter, when brought to I the surface, showed blue color. It is of the subsistence of dough, spark ling with grains of the precious metal, like sand in a mortar. There are hundreds of tons now in sight, and when it is opened out more there will be thousands. Tbe Elkton mine was recently flooded by a lake being tapped.' Great pumps are lowering the water rapidly, and then the true extent of tbe richest strike ever known will be revealed. Tbe management refuses to 'divulge the assay of the mine further than that it runs Into thousands of dollars per ton. D. D. McDonald, former newspaper man, present mining expert and mag nate, and above all the champion wing shot of the territory, arrived in town last night. lie is principally hereon mining business, but he will make this visit an occasion to show the local sportsmen what he can do over the trap. He has a standing offer against the shots of the northern part of the territory to come in with cush to prove who is the best man. Between events at the traps to-day Mr. McDanald will entertain proposition regard iog min ing deals. Republican. J.J. Fraser and Jack Smith returned Monday morning from Alaska. Tbey are operating a fine copper property on Copper river. On their way down they stopped at San Francisco, where they saw Charley Mason and Thomas Graham, both members at different times of the legislature from Pinal county. Both have grown rich in min ing. Mr. Graham is threatened with blindness and was at San Francisco for treatment. Republican. While the Nogales train was nearing Crittenden Saturday afternoon the engine and three cars left the track. Fireman Wm. Clark was standing in the gangway and was caught between the boiler and cab, causing instantane ous death. Clark was a single roan about 22 years of age. lie lived at Nogales, where relatives reside. "I understand you're more liberal than your fellows," said the northern visitor. "Perhaps you will admit that some colored men are as goad as white men." 6 , "Waal, no," replied the liberal south erner, "but I will admit tha,tsome white men are worthless as niggahs."

Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbliog sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be des troyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing bat an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Care. Send circulars; free. F. .1. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, Ohio.

According to the Railway Age, pre liminary arrangements have been com pleted for tiio sale of the Santa Fe, Presaott & Phoenix road to the Atchi son, Topeki ASiuHaFa. The stock holders of the a. r ., r. r. win meet at Preseott, November 24, for the purpose of considering the proposition of the Santa Fe. Just what action will be taken in the matter remains for tbe future, but it is the general belief that the deal will go through. Nothing, however, is kuown at the local offices of the road. The Santa Fe, Preseott & Phoenix company, including the Preseott fc Eastern, operates 221 miles of road. It earned in the year that ended on Jane 30 last $050,000, as against $087,000 in 1900. The total bet income last near stood at $525,003, bat of which the Preseott & Eastirn rental took $17,000 and interest on bonds $395,000, leaving a surplus of $11,000 in 1901, as compared with $123,000 iu 1900. Gross earnings per mile averaged $4,270 last year and $4,408 the year before. Numerous tributary branches are projected.. Nkw York, Oct. 23. A circular has been issued to the stockholders of the Atchison railroad saying that at its next meeting, in Decembar, they will be asked tj ratify tbe purchase of tbe capital stock and bonds of the Pecos Valley and Northwestern Railway com' pany and tbe capital stock and second mortgage bonds ofthe Santa Fe, Pres eott and Phoenix company. The evident intention of the Santa Fe and Rock Island, and rivalry be tween those companies, to build through Florence and up the Gila, thus tapping the mineral reziou about Riverside and on lower Mineral Creek have spurred Mr. Garland and his com pany to action. At any rate there is a good prospect for the G. V., G. & N company building a western extension at an early date, which would give new impetus to mining in this district and stimulate the growth and general business of Globe. Globe Silver Belt This road question is something like corns, you can't get away from it till youdigit out. Tho latest attempt to make a pood road to Troy is from all accounts a failure. Tbe road is pUin ly impracticable for freighting purposes between Pioneer and Troy.' Hundreds of dollars have gone up in giant powder and elbow grease and nothing to show for it. Globe Times.
