CITIZENS’ MEETING,
Quite a number of our citizens
gathered at the Co-Op Hall last
Saturday evening for the purpose of
discussing the advisability of estab -
lishing a creameuy and ice plant in
Mesa City.
Mr. 0. H. Connolly called the
meeting to order, and Charles Peter
son was elected Chairman and Dr.
Lucas, Secretary.
The object of the meeting was
stated by the chairman. The matter
was thoroughly discussed by those
present, and considerable interest and
enthusiasm shown,
A committee of ten of our leading
citizens was appointed for the purpose
of working up interest in the project.
The next meeting will be held in
the Co-Op Hall next Monday evening,
June 5, 1899. Everybody is invited
to be present and assist in building
up this very worthy enterprise,
ROENTGEN RAYS IN WAR.
An item of the greatest interest in
Dr. Battersby’s recent paper on the
use of tbe Roentgen rays in the Sou
dan campaign, - was the statement that
if there was no other means of pro
viding current for the hospital cases
just brought in from the battlefield,
where inspection for the location of
bullets was needed, a tandem bicycle
could always be relied on for the pur
pose. Further details of the process
■ have **ow been given. Jt>
that the “specially prepared candles,*'
which had been put into the supply
wagons to give light in. the desert,
were all melted by the heat, sq that
the storage batteries carried by the
hospital staff for the X-ray work on
the wounded. The pulley of a small
dynamo was connected by means of a
belt with the back wheel of a tandem
bicycle, The circuit would be first
adjusted with the storage battery,
and also with voltmeter and ammeter,
which indicated the amount and
pressure of current being generated,
and then a warrant officer mounted
the saddle of the t ack seat and began
pedaling. When 15 volts and 4 am
peres were registered, a switch close
to the handle of the bicycle was
opened, and the chirging of the bat
tery commenced. As the resistance
became greater, the man in the sad
dle had all the eem.aliona of taking a
very stiff hill, and unally an additional
orderly had to be requisitioned for
the front seat. All this time the
temperature was usually about 110
deg. Fahr. in the shade, so half
an hour of this sort of exercise was
all that the most enthusiastic votary
of science cared for. At the end of
that time the switch controlling the
battery was closed, so as to prevent
any discharge of the stored element,
and the machine was brought, to a
standstill
Dr. Battersby speaks also of the
;immense amount of mental worry
saved to the soldier by the use of the
X-ray. Formerly the probing for
the bullet was in many cases agon
izing, and the prospect of the ordeal
would often unnerve the soldier more
than facing the enemy. Now ihe
agony of the uncertain groping among
the muscles and sinews of the wounded
soldier is a thing of the past; even on
field service bullets can bo localized
with mathematical precision in the
deepest parts of the body, and the
greatest help is gained by the rays in
uncertain fractures.
PROSPERITY NEAR FOR YUMA
The opening of the Algadones land
grant to (he people which will now
follow the final decision of the Su
preme Court which declares the al
leged grant void, will result in a largo
population swarming into Yuma coun-
ty tc reclaim the rich valley lands of
the Colorado, which has been kept
from occupation these many years by
virtue of the alleged private land
claim. The courts are .doing good
work for the people of the Territory
by settling those titles, for it means
additional taxation arising from these
lands which have so long un
productive because unreclaimed to
agriculture and hence unproductive of
taxes. The reclamation of these lands
will make homes, increase assessable
values and thus distribute the tax
burdens of the Territory among a
greater number of people. The settle
ment of the title to the lauds of the
Colo M ado will probably be followed by
hundreds of farms and with the con
struction of the State of Arizona
canal from five to seven millions ot
taxable property will be added to
Yuma county and the Territory.
Increased population and prosperity
is near at hand for the valley of the
Colorado.—Sentinel.
Arizona is a territory of mining
wonders. Her great copper, gold and
silver mines have demonstrated that
she possesses unlimited mineral re
sources and yet the prospector’s pick
has scarcely begun its discovery work.
Indian raids, scarcity of water and
want of • transportation facilities to
many of her mineralized mountain
ranges, hive greatly retarded her
opening and development of several
of her most promising and richest
mining districts. The first of these,
however, has been effectually settled,
the second largely overcome, and the
third undergoing a rapid transforma
tion by the building of local branch
railroads tQ her most productive min
ing camps, and today Arizona is en
tering an era of mining activity and
substantial growth never before "known
in her history. The mainspring of
this energy ia Largely centered in the
fact that the common use of elec
tricity has created a greater demand
for copper requiring increased pro
duction and stimulating prices, both
of which will bring Arizona to the
front and build for her a copper pro
ducing record that very soon will be
unsurpassed by any state or country.

porter, Denver.
The Florence Tribune says there
are some people in that community
who are trying to down it, but gives
them warning that they will not suc
ceed, r l he Tribune lias labored night
and day for years to keep the hide
whole that covers the bones of Flor
ence and Pinal county, and we ven
ture the assertion that it has done
more for the benefit of that com
munity in one year than its enemies
have done combined in ten. A news
paper in a community is a benefit and
a drawing card that few realize or
appreciate. Through its efforts more
people are induced to come to that
community than through all other
combined efforts, and the man who
will do it an injury to satisfy private
spite,by witholding patronage, patron
izing outsiders, or turning the patron
age of others is an enemy to the
public.—Guardian,
THE EDITOR’S TRIALS.
: An editor is a millionaire without
money, a congressman out of a job,
a king without a throne. He con -
structs without saw or hammer,
builds railroads without spikes or
rails and farm 3 .vithout a plow. He
runs a butchershop in the journalistic
world, deals out brains cheap for
cash and credit. He loves those who
advertise with him as he loves himself.
He heals the wounded cares for the
dying, rescues the perishing, and
starves himself when a ham sand
wich would jerk him from the jaws of
death.—Ex.
As a rule the teachers of Morieopa
county are a generous set. Six of

THE MEXICAN TREATY.
A copy of the new extradition treaty
with Mexico was received at the office
of the governor yesterday. It does not
differ materially from the former treaty
and is retroactive, covering the cases of
fugitive criminals who have crossed the
line between the expiration of the ojd
and the promulgation of the new treaty.
Persons accused of the following
crimes are subject to extradition: Mur
der, rape, bigamy, arson, various crimes
at sea, burglary, robbery, forgery of
public documents or private or com
mercial papers, embezzlement of public
funds or from a private employer, kid
naping, mayhem or mutilation causing
disability of death, malicious destruction
of railroads, bridges or trains, or public
or private buildings or vehicles; obtain
ing money by threats of false devices
and larceny of money or goods exceed
ing $25 in value. Persons charged with
attempting any ©t these crimes may be
extradi ed/
Here are some limitations: The ev
idence against the fugitive criminal
mus*-. if uncontradicted, be sufficient to
convict him of the crime in the country
of which the extradition is asked. If
the limitation in the. country of which
the extradition is asked has run against
the crime, the fugitive ma* not be ex
tradited Neither can he "be extradited
if he has been already punished for the,
same crime in the country of which the
extradition is asked or if he is undergo
ing punishments at the time the requisi
tion is made.
A requisition for a fugitive criminal,
a citizen of the country of which the
extradition is asked, may or may not be
honored, at the discretion of the authori
ties of that country. In the case of
requisitions by more than one govern
ment for a fugitive orimiu il. the first
come will be first serve b
Persons accused on purely political
crimes cannot be extradited, but the
•assassination or attempted assassination
of a ruler is not considered a politl cal
crime.
The first application in this territory
for a requisition under this treaty was
made yesterday. It was forwarded to
Washington, as all these negotioti ois
must be conducted between the state de
partments of the two countries.—Fo
publican.
BIG REAL ESTATE DEAL.
Monday evening the deal was
closed, papers signed and the money
paid which transfers 50 feat on
Washington street, now occupied by
Chapman Bros., from Geo. E. Lorbig
to Mons Ellingson of Tempe. The
consideration was $20,000, which is
an excellent buy. Mr. Loring paid
$750 for the lot twenty years ago.
About that time Mins Elliug or.
came to Salt River valley a poor b >y,
working for wages. He has prosper
ed and today his possessions lure are
worth $150,000. He will proceed to
erect u handsome brick block on the
newly acquired property. The
was made through the agency of Col.
T. L. Shultz, who has sold consider
able real estate of late. While proper
ty is not high, a good many sales are
being made and an active season is
just ahead.—Enterprise.
HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD
It is now abcut time that the news
papers put a stop to the continual
boycotting of their business practiced
by the medical profession under the
pretense of what they are
pleased to term “medical ethics.”—
SThe Oasis.
There is nothing so closely resem
bling this so-called “medical ethics”
as the so-called “Spanish honor,” of
which v/e have read so much. Both
stagger around the earth on the spin
dle shanks of a hollow pretense, de
ceiving no person save those who
make use of them in the blind belief
tha- they are deceiving others.—
Courier.
