Expert Making a Thorough Examination
of This Section.
The smelter situation remains
practically the same as last week,
James Edgar Black, president and
manager of the Southern Smelting
company, still being in the field
examining the different mines and
prospects near here, but having lit
tle to say, evidently preferring to
keep his own counsel until a de
cision is reached. Mr. Black, in
company with George B. Upton
and George E. Sanders, has been
in the field for the past ten days
and has visited the Vulture, Black
Rock, Blue Tank, Slim Jim, Wick
enbnrg, Rich Hill, Weaver and
Octave districts. In a few days
they will depart for the Colorado
river and Bill Williams districts,
making extended examination of
the mineral deposits in that section,
with a view of constructing a rail

take to furnish the ore necessary
to run the smelter, wil 1 soon cause

IN DAYS GONE BY.
i A Tale of the Lord’s Prayer and How Pete
Kitchen Won the Money.
Many years ago a party of five
gentlemen were playing a social
game of poker in Charley Brown’s
saloon in Tucson, Pete Kitchen
of Sonora fame, ex-Mayor Maish
of Tucson, George Stevens, then
sheriff of Graham county, Captain
Jeffords, agent of the Chiricahau
Indians, and R, N. Leatherwood,
the ‘‘Little Giant,” composed the
party. They played along with
varying success until the sweet
music of the church bells, calling
the faithful to early mass, diverted
thej.r thoughts to religious matters.
Pete said that when he was a boy
and attended Sunday school “hack
in the states” he could recite every
verse in the New Testament.
Maish said that he always did his
business according to the Golden
Rule. Stevens volunteered the in
formation that he knew but little
about the Bible, but had always
heard it highly spoken of. Jef
fords, wishing to show' that he had
some knowledge of the subject un
der discussion, made some remark
about Jonah swallowing the whale.
The Little Giant, who bad been
educated for a preacher, seemed
amused, but said nothing. Maish
remarked that he did not believe
there was a man in the party, ex
cept himself, who could repeat the
Lord’s Prayer, and he looked Pete
Kitchen squarely in the eye when
he said it. Pete ciacked down five
twenty dollar gold pieces with the
remark that he would wager that
amount that he could say it “the
first dash out of the box.” The
money was promptly covered, and
Pete was told to “proceed with the
deal.” Pete seemed puzzled for a
moment, hut soon regained confi- 1
deuce, and started off very bravely
“Now I lay me down to sleep;
If I should die before I ’’
“Hold on, Pete,” said Maish, ;
“the money is yours. I always
thought your religious education ;
had been neglected. This round i
is on me, hoys.” The Little Giant
said nothing, but there was a faint
smile around the corners of his
mouth as lie bit off the end of a
fresh cigar.—-Copper Era.
Will Be Tried On Two Charges Before i
U. 5. Trial Jury.
The United States grand jury at
Tucson last Wednesday indicted 1
ex-Collector of Customs Wm. Hoey
on the charges of taking bribes and
aiding the entrance of Chinese into
the United States unlawfully. The :
trial was started but has been post- 1
poned until Monday. .
Cyaniding at the Vulture.
Supt. Geo. W. Sanders of the '
New Vulture Mining Company was 1
in from the mine Thursday pur- 1
chasing supplies. About a dozen
men are employed, working now
on the extensions of the old mine
yet retained by the company. '
The cyanide plant will be put in ;
operation in a few days and will
be run at full capacity for several '
months or as long as'the water sup- :
ply lasts. The fabled pipe line
and the cars of machinery which
have been shipped so many times,
according to various territorial and
eastern papers, have never reached
Wickenburg and we are beginning ,
to lose faith in the good intentions
of the Vulture Gold Company. ,
They have shown great activity in
disposing of the stock but have
done nothing at the mine. We un
derstand that their bond expired
yesterday, but whether it was taken
up or not, we do not know. We
are glad that the bond has expired
as the Vulture Gold Company will
either have to do something or let
As I Was Saying.
A newspaper, whose columns
overflow with advertisements of
business men, has more influence in
attracting attention to building up ;
a town, than any other agency that
can he employed. People go where
there is business. Capital and la
bor go where there is an enterpris
ing community. No power on
earth is so strong to build up a
town so v'oll as a newspaper well
patronized, and its power should
be appreciated. The man who
overlooks his town paper injures <
himself by injuring his town and
town sm enJ oh n Wanamaker.
That is just what we have been
trying to impresss upon the mer
chants of this section, John.
THE FINAL CHAPTER.
1700 Volts of Electricity Percolates Through
the System of Czoigosz.
Auburn, Oct. 29. —At 7:12:30
this morning Czoigosz, the mur
derer of President McKinley, paid
the life penalty of his crime, in the
electric chair at Auburn prison.
While in the chair Czoigosz made
a short speech in which he declared
lie was not sorry. He showed the
nerve of a dazed beast, and did not
at any time break down. Three
shocks with the current of 1700
volts were given the prisoner before
he was pronounced dead.
The murderer was brought into
the execution chamber at 7:10. He
was immediately seated in the fatal
chair. He had previously been
prepared for his execution, being
dressed in a loose shirt, a pair of
trousers and socks. The straps
were adjusted and as Warden
Mead raised his hands the current
was turned on. At 7:17 the war
den announced, “Gentlemen, the
prisoner is dead.”
The body of the assassin will be
buried in quick lime and guarded
And thus the curtain falls on a
tragedy that made a nation weep.
A Summary of the Local Happenings in
that Thriving Neighborhood.
Mr. Hinkley, the San Francisco
expert who bonded Jack Gunnell’s
mines, arrived in camp Monday.
C. J. Carmicheal, the traveling
man for the Martinez Mercantile
company, was here Tuesday and
sold Gilbert & Rowe a nice bill of
goods. He also sold Mr. Bone
cutter a small bill of clothing.
One of the best rains of the sea
son fell here this week.
The Denver Mining and Devel
opment company has no black
smith shop nor water, but the Crea
tor has provided the country with
miners and prospectors who have
saved up enough money to dig
wells and buy the necessaries with
■which* to Jo their development
work without imposing on the good
nature of their neighbors.
Chas. Dorr was in town this week
Johnnie Devine passed through
here Monday from the Crown Point
mine on his way to Skull Valley,
where he is interested in some very
promising prospects, from which
he contemplates taking some mon
ey very soon,
Gilbert & Rowe have, struck a
very nice body of rich gold ore in
their National Bank group of
mines near Octave. The ore as
says up into the hundreds.
F. X. O’Brien was in town for a
short time this week.
A good opening for some promis
ing young man: —Gilbert & Rowe’s
cook is going to Phoenix in a few
days to get a divorce. According
to the laws of Arizona the ’property
will be open for re-location.
James Dunn came in on today’s
stage. He has organized a com
pany known as the Buckhorn Min
ing company with headquarters
at Phoenix. 4 He expects to put
men to work opening lip the mines
by the middle of this month.
The Sahauro Group.
Richard Lloyd, holding the bond
on the Sahauro mine, has returned
from Colorado Springs, and in
company with George C. Hewitt
is making a close examination of
the property with a view of deter
mining their future plans. Asked
concerning their plan of develop
ment, Mr. Lloyd replied that he
had nothing to say for publication
at present. Mr. Hewitt is an ex
perienced mining engineer and a
capitalist, and the probabilities are
that extensive work will be done
on the claims within the next few
months. Messrs. Lloyd and Hew
itt went out Friday to examine the
claims Mr. DeWitt bonded from the
Mohnike brothers last spring for
$25,000. Mr, Lloyd stated that if
Wickenburg was in Colorado and
had the showings that are here it
would have a population of 5000--
within sixty days.
Rev. C. W, Tarr will hold ser
vices in the school house Sunday *
evening at 7:30, to which everyone
is cordially invited. Rev. Tarr is '
intending to make Wickenburg his I
