If creditors are to establish the
dangerous precedent of challeng

We always thought we would
like to live-in Jerome. There is so
much excitement there that the
editor of the Jerome Mining News
follows each headline with an ex
clamation point. Wonder what he
would do if something really ex
citing should happen?
The statehood meeting at Phoe
nix last Saturday was a rousing
success, and all indications point
to the admission of Arizona as a
state during the coming session of
congress. When we are admitted
to the union Arizona will see the
greatest boom every experienced
by any western state.

A potato went on a mash
And sought an onion bed ;
That’s pie for me, observed the squash,
And all the beets turned red.
“Go away,” the onion, weeping, cried,
“Your love I cannot he ;
The pumpkin is your lawful bride,
You cantaloupe with me.”
The recent mining flurry in this
vicinity has caused the landscape
in the vicinity of Sahauro to put
on the appearance of, a huge ceme
tery. Location monuments are so
frequent as to remind one of the
headstones in a graveyard. The
uninitiated passing through there
at night would certainly have
Spooky feelings.
The recent rain has settled the
dust and refreshed the atmosphere
to a degree that a feeling of pity is
aroused for the benighted easterner,
groping and wheezing through the
murkiness of eastern weather.
Come to Arizona, where you can
get down close to fresh earth and
breathe your lungs full of ozone
that makes your blood tingle after
the manner of new wine!
There is no smallpox in Wicken
burg hut several patients are suffer
ing with an accute attack of min
ing fever. The contagion seems to
have spread from the recent strike
at Sahauro. The nature of the
malady is not necessarily danger
ous, its worst feature being to ren
der the patient non compos
and cause him to talk in a loud
and excited tone of voice. Like
a bad cold it must he allowed to
run its course.
Editors Peppy and Weeden of
Florence are wasting considerable
raw material by using a'column or
more of their respective papers
each week to delineate the personal
charms and character of each other.
Fight if you want to, gentlemen,
hut don’t force your suffering read
ers to witness a sham battle every
w r eek. It is hardly in keeping
with Arizona’s dignity or your own
reputations to treat a serious sub
ject so lightjy.
Wickenburg would stand more
of a chance of getting a smelter if
some of the cioakers would ease up
with their pessimistic growling at
the way of those who are trying to
secure the location of one here.
There is only one way of getting
anything, and that is to go after it,
And the men who are continually
throwing cold water on every enter
prise which comes along, and yet
never try to do anything them
selves, cannot be of much benefit
to a town.

K Globe Times,
Miss Marie Mattingly, the female
Joe Mulhatton (beg pardon, Joe,
for the comparison) with the riotous
imagination, who slandered Arizo
na and her climate so unmercifully
last summer through the columns
of the Washington Post, has again
returned to the country which she
traduced, hut which restored her to
health, and will spend the winter
in Phoenix.
As a pipe dreamer, Marie Mat
tingly outsmokes us on the first
puff, but if she will come to Wick
enburg we will swap imaginary ex
periences with her to her heart’s
content and possibly furnish her
with some good material to spring
on the unsuspecting and unsophis
ticated eastern public next sum
mer, Wo are of the opinion that the
papers arc as much to blame as
Miss Mattingly, because we know
from experience that the eastern
papers, as a rule, demand that sto
ries of western life he wild and With
the wool on, and a ‘‘real westerner”
must eat raw meat and growl like
a dog, and the poor newspaper
man or woman must write what
is saleable —or go hungry.
We think Wickenburg is health

A story is told that recently in
Los Angeles five prominent gentle
men of foreign birth chanced to
meet. One was a Russian, one a
Turk, one a Frenchman, one an
American and one an Englishman.
The gentlemen became bosom
friends, and finally a champagne
supper was proposed, at which each
gentleman, to he in keeping with
the times, was to give a toast to
his native country, the one giving
the best toast to he at no expense
for the wine. Here are the toasts
The Russian —“Here’s to the
stars and bars of Russia, that were
never pulled down.”
The Turk —“Here’s to the moons
of Turkey, whose wings were never
The Frenchman —“Here’s to the
cock of France whose feathers were
never picked.”
The • American —“Here’s to the
stars and stripes of the United
States of America, that never trail
ed in defeat.”
The Englishman—“ Here’s to the
rampin’, roarin’ lion of Great Brit
ten, that tore down the stars and
bars of Russia, clipped the wings
of Turkey, picked the feathers off
the cock of France, and ran like
li —1 from the stars and stripes of
the United States of America.”
The Englishman paid for no
champagne.—L; A. Post.
The territorial statehood conven
tion unanimously adopted the fol
lowing memorial at Phoenix Satur
day :
That we, the people of Arizona,
in convention assembled, hereby
declare that we are justly entitled
to be freed from a territorial form
of government; that such a gov
eminent is fitted only for a sparse
ly settled and turbulent frontier,
and that whenever any section of
country becomes reasonably devel
oped by a sufficient number of peo
ple, wealth and intelligence, such
country should then be erected in
to a sovereign state and the people
thereof he clothed with full powers
of self-government. It has been
the unvarying cite tom of the people
of the United States, through con
gress and the executive department
to admit to the union of states
every territory which possessed
sufficient population, wealth and
the ability to govern itself.
We also declare that the terri
tory of Arizona lias been under a
territorial form of government for
a period of thirty eight years; that
for the past ten years she has had
a larger population and greater
wealth than the average of all the
states of the union at the time of
their admission since the original
thirteen states established the gov
The territory of Arizona in point
of climate, soil and mineral re
sources is without a peer. No
other equal ereu west of the Miss
issippi river has more natural re
sources; her soil produces the
oranges and limes of Italy, the
dates of Egypt, the grapes of France,
the cereals of the north and the
cattle and sheep of the central
states; her mineral wealth is un
measured, her mines of copper
alone are producing bullion of the
value of $35,000,000 annually.
We declare that Arizona is justly
entitled to admission as a state,
first, because she has the requisite
number of people; second, because
she lias more than the requisite
amount of wealth; third, because
she has ability and desire for self
government; fourth, because her
people have shown themselves to be
first in patriotism and loyalty to the
union in times of peril;and finally,
the admission of Arizona to state
hood will, in addition to our already
acquired population and wealth,
cause a rapid increase in develop
ment through the confidence in
spired by the knowledge of stabil
ity under state law.
Be it further resolved, that con
fidently relying upon the sense of
justice and liberality existing in
both branches of congress we do
ip.ost earnestly and respectfully en
treat and petition the United States
congress to pass an act enabling
Arizona to take her proper place
in the sisterhood of states.
S. E. Brotherton, a metallurgist
and successful smelter manager, is
a recent arrival in Prescott to take
charge of that department of the
Val Verde smelter. Mr. Brother
ton comes from Silver City, New
Mexico, where he was a smelter
manager, having previously served
in the same capacity in Colorado.
His name and reputation as an ex
pert and a success in his line pre
ceded him some time lief ore he
came himself. The Courier report
er had the pleasure of meeting him
a few evenings ago and gathering
a few smelter ideas from a short
conversation. The smelter ideas
and the newspaper ideas rubbed
together a few minutes with the
following result: Experience has
demonstrated that a smelter in
operation is a mine seller and an
investment inducer. Nothing
creates so favorable an impression
as a few live smoke stacks—not
taxless smoke stacks, mind you.
Even if the cost of treating ores is
the same at home as if they were
shipped, the person must be short
sighted, indeed, who would prefer
to ship, as home prosperity should
be considered. A home smelter
gradually causes more mine devel
opment, on the same principle that
it draws outside investment. The
smelter fills a long felt want, and
everybody should pull for its suc
cess. —Courier.
Col. S. M. McCowan has been
appointed superintendent of the
Indian school at Chilocco, Oklaho
ma, and will leave soon to assume
his duties. A large farm is con
ducted there by the Indian stu
dents and the school is one of the
largest in the United States. While
the people of Arizona will he sorry
to lose Col. McCowan fiUey rejoice
in his good fortune. He has been
one of the most active residents in
the Salt River valley, having been
editor of the Arizona Republican,
an officer in the Gila Water com
pany and director of the Home
Savings bank, as well as superin
tendent of the Indian school at
Phoenix. He also has large land
ed interests here, but will retain
these, having just had forty acres

The truth of the following story
has been vouched for to the Journ
al-Miner: While a marriage cere
mony was in progress in one of the
Prescott churches recently, when
the minister asked if any of those
present had any objections or knew
of any reason why the couple should
not be joined in wedlock, to speak
now or to forever hold their peace,
a man arose in the rear of the
church and remarked that thc
groom had owed him a bill for
some time and he objected to his
being married until it was paid.
The bill was paid and the cere
mony proceeded with.
The smelter expert who has been
examining this district for the past
fortnight has observed a world of
wealth in these tanned and ragged
hills, which need but the magic
touch of capital and labor to con
vert into ore fields richer than
fabled Ophir. It is only a matter
of time until these desert hills will
he compelled to yield up their
wealth of precious metals for the
advancement and betterment of
mankind, and a smelter is one of
the agencies which will bring about
this climax.
Czolgosz has paid the price of
his crime and has gone down to
the tongueless silence unwept and
unsung hut execrated hv all the
world. He damned religion and
law, and the next moment shuffled
off to join the hosts of the devil.
