Fifteen Klondike companies have been organized in London with a capi tal stock of £2,046,583. Southern congressmen will endeavor to have the proposed government armor plant located at Birmingham, Ala. An Englishman estimates that the earnings of Sarah Bernhardt for the last twenty-five years have amounted to more than $1,000,000. The Nebraska state board of t-gri culture estimates that the Nebraska farmers stili hold seven and half mil lion bushels of wheat. Luti9 A. Lytle, a colored woman, has been admitted to tne bar at Memphis. She is the first woman iawyer admitted to practice in Tennessee. Late advices from Hawaii indicate that Japanese aggression in the islands is assuming a serious aspect and that Japan will abate nothing of its protest against annexation. The amount of capital invested in the manufacture of bicyc'.e tires in the United States is estimated by an ex change at $8,000,000, the number of per sons employed at 3,000 and the number produced annually at 4,000,000. The tax levy of the various counties so fur as retux-ned show the following figures: Cochise, $4.22; Maricopa, $2 25: Pima, $2.75; Yavapai, $3.40; Graham, $3.80; Navajo, $3.10; Gila, $4.00; Coco nino, $4.45. There are five counties tlx t have a higher i*ate of taxation than j Navajo. A fire in Flagstaff Sunday night last destroyed the Coconino saloon and restaurant, Kilpatrick’s general mer chandise store, Bagnall’s shoe store and Manner’s jewelry store. The fire is supposed to have been of incendiary origin, but they have been unable to get any trace of the fire-bug. The daks of Veragua, the direct lin eal descendant of Christopher Colum bus, draws the perpetual pension of £4,000, granted by the Spanish govern ment to the heirs of the great discov erer forever. The pension is charged Ito the Cuban revenues. When Cuba 1 hag gained her freedom the pension j will probably bo stopped. i The Canadian pacific claims it can build a road to Dawson City and the Klondike country in ninety miles over ; a route that is accessible and not nec essarily costly, and will probably put | it tnrough the coming spring and sum ■ mar. A leading firm of. ThiiLuel-; phia advertises -'"Before-adding the ex tra prices necessary on account of the new tariff law, we deem it wise to close out our stock of goods now on hand.” It then quotes present prices and tbo prices that will bo charged under the new law-, the latter being an increase of from 33> a to 100 per cent. —Albuquer- que Democrat. Flagstaff was the scene of a destruc tive fire Sunday night and a murder on the following Monday night. A Mexi can youth sixteen or eighteen years of age shot and kiil&d another Mexican, using a 45-60 Winchester. A woman, as usual, was at the bottom of the af fair. Were unable to learn particulars. The boy was arrested and is in jail. Spain, England and the United States are trying to patch up a compromise between the first,named power and her rebellious subjects in Cuba. England has proposed that Spain give Cuba a similar form of government to that en joyed by Canada. The Cuban leaders have declared, and still declare, they will accept nothing short of absolute liberty. That is what they are fighting for and they will accept notmng less. Judge Truesdale granted a temporary injunction last Saturday restraining the Territorial Loan Commission from taking further action in the matter of the funded Yavapai railroad bonds. H I>. Ross, District Attorney of Yavapai county, assisted by John C Herndon, represented the people of Yavapai, and Attorney General Frazier the Loan Commission. November sth was the date fixed for a final hearing. A California paper touches a perti nent suoject when it says that it seems to be necessary, just about so often, to remind people that they must not ex pect to obtain free advertising for events of any kind from which they ex pect to reap a profit. A newspaper’s advertising space is its goods and its wares; just as much as are the flour and : sugar in a merchants store. To ask for ' a gift of such advertising space is to exhibit as much gall as to ask a mer chant to give away his goods. The Los Angeles Times is boastin:. of the prosperity now prevailing all over the country, in almost every issue ; of the paper, and stultifies itself by reducing the wages of its employes. If times are as prosperous as it would | have its readers believe, what, excuse can they have for reducing wages. If ! that paper was sincere during the last campaign in its protestations of pro tecting American labor from the pau per labor of Europe, how can ic justify itself in reducing the wages of its em ployes to a level of the wages paid the | same class of labor in London, where i the cost of living is much cheaper, at a time when there is a tidal wave of prosperity sweeping over the entire country. “Consistency, thou art a jewel.” ____ The injunction is playing an impor tant part in the affairs of the country these days. It has been used to sup press fi'ee speech and to stop peaceful parades in the labor strikes. It is be ing resorted to in lowa to muzzle the press. A newspaper at Charles City, mauaged to obtain possession of some I letters of a damaging character which ! had passed between Senators Allison, Grear and other leading republics ns, and a candidate for “postmaster at that place. The parties interested learned in some way that the pubii her had the letters and intended publishing them, and immediately invoked the aid of a pliant court to prevent him. District Attorney Ross has resorted to injunc tion to restrain the Loan Commission from funding the Yav&psicounty rail road bonds. Deba, may be somewhat ultra in some cf his ideas, but in this suggestion, we think he is about right. He has advised the electric railroad employes to enjoin their companies from discharging them because they are union men. If it is good law for wealthy men and corporations, it ought to protect organized labor as well. But we fear the courts will find someway of evading the law in one instance and enforcing it ia the other. In fact, the subserviency of our courts, is one of the many causes of the universal un rest and discontent of Americans. In the mining edition recently issued by the Los Angeles Times, we find the following in regard to the mining in dustry in Arizona: “If it were asked why, in a territory so extensive as the mineral region of Arizona, so little progress has been made in develop ment, the main answer, unquestionably, would be found in the expense of trans portation, not only in bringing the nec essary appliances of machinery into the territory, but also in having to ship the ores out for reduction; as but few mines have reduction works, except for copper. To this may be added (he in accessibility of the country, which de tracts capital to nearer eastern locali ties. The mining districts have, been so widely scattered that ores could not well be brought together at any one place for the establishment of smelting works, and it is seldom that ore enough can be had from one mine, or group of mines, for the establishment of such works. Besides, the large establish ments erected in Colorado, New Mexi co and at El Faso, Texas, having much better facilities for fuel and railway advantages, could easily compete for the ores which could be offered. The above mentioned large works could treat their own ores at home and thus retard progress in mines disadvantage- located. The silver mining was checked measurably for years—until one drop in the value of the metal, a fact which has [Tactically brought sil ver mining to a close.” A certain author wrote a letter to an editor complaining against the small price paid for one of his articles. The editor replied: “Circumstances have compelled us to reduce the price of our publication. For three years past you ! have been contributing to our downfall. ; You must, therefore, bear your part of the burden. We really think you should manifest some sympathy for us.” —At- lanta Constitution. Official Proceedings! OF THE tor! of Supervisors OF | Navajo County.

There probably would be no objection to the shipping of the horses if the party cares to come to Arizona and try his luck in catching the animals.—Gazette.
