COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country oi local in terest solicited. Editorial Notes. Prescott is bragging about a big hpg. [ Many other town 3 in Arizona have big hogs that they don’t brag about.—Pros pector. Thos. A. Edison promises to revolu tionize mining for all metals, the prec ious as weli as the base. He says he can do away with the old methods and does everything by machinery. The only labor he employs is engineers, machinists and laborers. Practical miners will be knocked out. A Kentucky editor said silver buck les on garters were becoming fashiona ble and be hoped to see more of them. His wife sued for a divorce, and the only woman in town who had silver buckles on her garters cowhided the 1 poor editor until he was as raw as a potato. The wave of prosperity is hitting 1 New England hard. Eighty thousand ' cotton mill operatives are on a strike 1 on account of a reduction of from 10 « to 20 per cent in their wages. Fortu 1 uately those who voted almost solidly < for “the wave” are the first to feel its beneficent effects. < An exchange observes, pertinently, j 1 that the preacher who returned Tam many’s contribution to the suffering poor of his parish might have acted 1 more humanely by first consulting 1 with the starving people for whom the | Tammany money was intended to buy ! < bread. j 1 Gov. McCord has called a miners' convention to be held in Phoenix on < the 25th inst. Navajo is an agricultur- , al and stock raising county and will, I probably, not be represented at the convention. Mining, however, is one , of the most important industries in the territory, and every means possible . to encourage and develop our mining , resources should be employed. Every • , mining camp in the territory ought to , be represented in the convention by its , ■ ablest and most practical men. We had no idea it was so dry In Kan sas a.s it is stated in tti© following clip plug: id the western part of the state, l; hogs have to be soaked over night be fore they will hold swill. In some j places thd water is wet only on one i side, and in another place the owner of a ferry boat had to haul water eleven months in the yea? ux order to run his months in the yea? in order to run his boat, and one farmer had to run his well through a clothes ringer every morning to gee. water for cooking pur | po.ses. The Utica, N. Y., Observer, thus per tinently puts a question tp piugley: “We sell Canada $81,000,000 a year. Great Britain sells to Canada only $29,000,000 a year. Each country has to climb into Cauad&c era tariff wall the same height, to all In the Canadian markets we compot England up on the same business footing, and we sell to Canada twice as much as Eng land does. Yet protectionism tells us that if it were not for the tariff Eng land would flood this country with goods. Why doesn’t she flood our goods out of Canada?” We have received acopyof Governor McCord’s report to the Secretary of [the Interior. It is an able document. | Every section of the territory is treat ed fairly ana impartially. Our vast natural resources are laid before the reading public of the United StatQs in graceful and forceful language. His pjea for statehood is eloquent and his arguments unanswerable. It is one of the most elaborate and comprehensive reports of the territory and its advan- j tages ever given to the public. If it were possible to place a copy of this work in every household in the coun try, A would add thousands to our pop- , ulation in a short time. I The Tombstone Prospector is respon sible for the following: Up at Prescott the newspapers.are calling each other hard names. The Journal-Miner says editor. Banta of the Pick and Drill is 1 “a puffed up egotist,” and ends by say ing: “When the Almighty created Ari- 1 zona he made a mistake by allowing any one in it except himself—according ‘ to b.is own estimate of himself.” Where- 1 upon the Pick and Drill man says the 1 Journal-Miner scribe is.the “Wild ass * of Yavapai,” and after saying that he j ’ does not like to call names proceeds j I with a two-column “roast.” Neither j one has any idea of suing the other for criminal libel, and they will continue 1 to tell tales on each other. 7" _ : 1 The West Baden Journal says: it is j( the editors duty to speak of his own as ( the loveliest town beneath heaven’s j j biue canopy. Speak of the deceased citizen as a fallen oak when he dies of ( the jim jams. Call a man a prominent j and influential citizen when he knows, ; he is the best poker player in town. : j Speak of the dirty-faced street arab as j £ a bright-eyed urchin on the road to | - fame. A big-footed, red-beaded newly J married old maid as the beautiful and accomplished young bride. Call a man who has a few rusty bolta of calico and a pair of overalls, an experienced dry i goods merchant. Call a lawyer a lead- , ing light of whom the profession ought , to be proud, when he knows him to be , a pettifogger. Ob, it’s nice to be an < editor. j | l The arid land bill introduced m the ( lower bouse of Congress by Shafroth j is to be brought up during the present session. The bill, as it is, should never J become a law. It provides for ceding j the arid lands to the States uncondi- ] tionally. The bill should be amended j 1 in several particulars. It should com- j pel the gradual reclamation of lands ; “ "- capable of being cultivated and limit their sale, when reclaimed, to tracts of not more than lfiO acres, with a condi tion that no one person, firm, corpora tion, trust or syndicate could become possessed of more than that amount in any one state. In its p,* esent form it throws the gate wide open to laud mo nopoly, and lands suitable for homes is getting scarce in. this country. One of the pension conundrums is this. a luo lueuiphis CcAumerciui- Appeal: There are only fourteen sur vivors of the war of 1812, but 3,287 wid ows of soldiers who fought in that war are drawing pensions. This makes nearly 235 widows to every survivor, and provides food for thought. When the survivors of the late war begin to thin out, why, their widows can come to the front and maintain the grand old pension system in all its pristine purity. When, for instance, the num ber of survivors drops to 500,000 the number of widows ought to be 235 times as large, or 117,500,000. So, though the stock of survivors may run low,the supply of widows is practically inex haustible. The El Paso Times says ua organized and determined effort has been inaug urated to kill or capture the Black Jack gang of outlaws who since last May, have had headquarters at Chua chupa, a Mormon colony, about one hundred miles southwest of Cases Grandes, in an isolated locality in the Sierra Madres. The posses of the Uni ted States deputy marshals, under com mand of J. D. Milton, whaoaptured the Stein’s Pass train robbers, went on into Sonora, Mexico, where they were joined by Colonel Emilio Kosterlizkey with twenty picked troopers. Thence the whole party, commanded by Koster lizkey, went swiftly across the moun tains and south of Chuachupa. The outlaws had fled, but the posse collect ed evidence that will tell against them if caught. The posse credits the re port that Black Jack has been killed. The Tombstone Prospector says a notable dance and general good time was had at the Chiricabua Cattle Co. home ranch in the Sulphur Spring val ley cn New Year’s eve. It was gotten up by cow bays j the guests were cow boys and the wives and sisters of cow? boys; the musio was by cowboys, who proved themselves as experts with the bow as with the riata. Not a drop of liquor was tasted. The boy 9 who pro moted the affair provided bountifully for thrice the number of guests present and the merry dance went on till Sim McCoy, the cook, announced that he wanted the- dining room to “set ’em table for blekfast.” Preparations are being made by the United Globe mines for a resumption of smelting, but the date when the fur nace is to be blown in cannot be fixed until information is received of the shipment of coke from the east, which is daily expected. There is about two week’s supply of coke ia the Clobe feilver Belt. The range in this section has not been so poorly for many years and there will be some losses of cattle principally north and west of Globe. In Upper Selt Eiver Valley cattle which were not too weak were removed back into the mountains. Those that remained are beginning to die off quite rapidly.—Globe Silver Bait Resolutions of Respect i At a regular meeting of Albuquei Division No. 134, Brotherhood of Lo comotive Engineers, the following res olutions were unanimously adopted: Whereas, It has pleased God, in his inunite wisdom, to call from their la bors, Brothers James Watson and Frank Newton, who were instantly killed Nov. 29tb. 1897, while in the faithful dis charge of their duty.

At a regular meeting of Clear Creek Division No. 94, G. I. A. to the B. of L.

A Hot Time at Duncan, Arizona. The Gazette prints the following as a special telegram from Duncan, Graham county, Arizona: Great excitement and consternation, prevails in this little railroad town over a school “marm” episode. The said school marm is young and pretty and that ia where the trou -1 ble begins. The lady in question has taught school here for tlie pa9t four j ' months and boarded at the bouse of j our store keeper, Tong, who is a married man about forty years of age ! and is inclined to be frisky, it seems, i Mrs. Tong has had her suspicions of • her Jim and this rosy-cheeked teacher j j for some time and a few evenings ago she quietly informed her hubby that ! 1 SUBSCRIBE FOR |TheWinslow Mail| Devoted to the Interests of WlnaloS $ and Navajo County. - & Royel makes the food pure; wholesome and delicious. Hik pß|| &4KIH@ POWDER Absolutely Pure * j j ROYAL BAKINS POWDER CO., NEW YORK, she was going out for a few hours to visit a lady friend, Mrs Allen. The lady did visit Mrs. Allen, but she re turned forthwith,and, looking through the dining room window, she saw Jim holding the teacher on bis lap. This made her furious mid, returning to th® home of her friends, she asked and se cured their return to witness the scene through the window. When the three looked through the window the scene had changed; the parties had changed positions and were seen, it is said, in a very compromising attitude. The mad dened wife broke open the door and a small war ensued. Jim, after an hour of tribulaticn,secured temporary peace. ; Later the school teacher and a lady friend met Mrs Tong on the road ri» . ding a wheel, whereupon the rosy cheeked maid attacked the wife with a horsewhip and beat her unmercifully. The citizens bocame enraged, an indig i nation meeting was held and the peo , pie demanded that the trustees dis • charge the young teacher. Two of the trustees stood firm for the girl and re fused, and. a war of extermination has ensued ever since. The girl sent and had a Kansas brother come to her, and he is a fighter from the headwaters and , one of his first acts was to take a wheel spoke and assault Dr. Graham, a new . physician, and wnaie, the daylights out of the pill-pounder, because he had ta ken sides against his sister, ond so the fight goes on. R. P. Fisher, a lawyer of Graham county, is here representing the district attorney’s office, and he is P in danger of bi§ life, as public senti* , meat is at a fever heal. Tong and his . wife have been lost sight of, and the ; little community resembles a Ketucky feud. This item has been kept out of the s Graham county papers because of the 1 standing of the parties to the scandal, j The wife swears that she will kill the handsome teacher, while that indepen , dent Miss goes about her business, armed with a six-shooter that would , strike terror to the leader of the Black Jack train robbers, and the young men of the vicinity applaud and stand ready to fight for her. The married women have organized against the girl, and present indications point to a killing of large dimensions in the near future. . This shows what trouble a pretty face > and a neat form can create in any com , munity, Call for Miners’ Convention-. Governor McCord on January 5tU issued the following call for a miners' convention: In compliance with many requests and in response to the suggestion made by several newspapers of the territory and believing, thet-afree interchange of views and united action of those in* terested would result in much good to that important industry in this terri tory, I deem it best to invite those in terested in mines and mining in this territory to meet at Phoenix, Arizona, on the 25th day of January, *B9B, at 2. o’clock p. m. of that day for the pur pose of taking such action relative to forming a mining association as shall seem wise and expedient. This call.is without authority of law, but as nearly all western states have such an organi zation which have resulted in much benefit to the interest, I have taken the liberty to take the initiative by issuing this call. I do not deem it wise to specify how representation for the con vention shall be arranged any further than to invite each camp to send as many of its representative men as it desires, and further that all who are in terested in mines or mining to be pres ent. The fairness and good sense o t those present will undoubtedly adjust all questions as to representation fair ly and satisfactorily. Very respectfully, Myron EL McCord, Governor of ArizonA. City Tax Collector Treat yesterday turned over his delinquent tax list to Treasuer C. H. Hoff, which foots up $1416.42. Tbia is about the earns ae last .year.
