It is believed it will be acted, on favorably by ongress. It is claimed that the law is designed to keep dollars of the old coinage at home, while at the same time, granting the merchant the profit he would earn by exportation at the present price of silver by handing over the dollars of the old coinage to the exchange and currency commission and receiving gold. For some time considerable apprehension has teen felt in government and financial circles because of the outflow of silver from this country.

Representatives of the Southern Pacific apled the council to take this action, claiming that the building of the spur by the Santa Fe would greatly interfere with their entranco to Phoenix. Beiore the rescinding ruer could go into effect the Santa Fet has built the spur, and it now stands as .1 barrier to the Southern Pacific. Editor Semple And Uncle Samuel D. W. Semple, who is charged with violating the United States laws in transmitting through the mails copies of the Bisbee Miner, of which he was editor and publisher, containing a verbatim account of a sensational case in the justice court at Bisbee, arrived in Tombstone last evening and is in custody of the authorities pending bis trial next month. Mr. Semple was seen by a Prospector reporter today. The doughty editor was tn the best of spirit and the charge against him weighs lightly upon his shoulders and appears to give him but little concern. He did not desire to make a statement for publication, stating that there would be plenty of surprises latei on and did not care to divulge any of bis plans at this time Mr.JSemple does not complain of Uncle Sam as a host, and has the lrgheu commendations for the U. S. officials who have taken him In charge. A suggested opportunity by a visitor to secure releise through habeas corpus because of a faulty commitment met with no encouragement from Mr. Semple, Jwho appeared content and not desirous of taking advantage of an alleged tech nicality. Neither has he made an ef fort to eccu e bonds Meanwhile he is cheery as of yore and entertains thote about him with Golufield stories and mining excitements. "1 ochise county looks cood to me. and I may remain but not in iaiC" concluded Mr Semple with a merry twinkle in his eye. His case will be set on December 17. Thos Pidwell was a Tombstone visitor today from Pesrce shaking hands with his many friends. E. W. Land was a Tombstone visitor today from bis mines in the Santa Ritas. He reports the develop ment snowing most encouraging re sults. The Huachuca Water company sustained a slight less at the reservoir on the hill yesterday through firer which j ctught from sparks blown from a fur nace in use lor beating aspnaltum. Wm Holmes, president of the Leadville Mining Co at Gleeson, was a Tombstone visitor today. Mr. Holme is elated over the rich ore strike recently made at the Leadville. The developments are showing the property to be one of exceptional value and destined to be one of the big producers of the county. "Sl: The Vote on Jointure in the Two Territories The figures showing the election in Arizona and 'w Mexico may now be considered about accurate, though in Arizona the official count in the several counties had cot been made. The result is gratifying to all opponents of Joint-statehood, as the result waa a Rood sate majority against the proposition in the two territories combined. - In New Mexico the majority for Manufacture Alcohol in Arizona 1 A company has been organized in Phoenix for the purpose of manufacturing denatured alcohol. It is the intention of the company to start at once the manufacturing of denatured alcohol for commercial purposes. Denatured alcohol can bo manufac tured from cactus, barley, beets, corn, sorghum or potatoes. Denatured alcohol can be used more economically than gasoline and is much cheaper. One gallon of denatured alcohol is equal to two gallons of gasoline. It is non-explosive and can be easily extinguished. Among the returning Fair visitors noted today besides the Tombstone delegation of teachers mentioned elsewhere, were noted Col. A. L. Grow, County Recorder Frank Hare, Cashier Brandt of the First National Bank, H. E Peoples. Rev. Benedict , and Sup't. J. A. Rockfellow. A large number of Tombstone excursionists are expected home tomorrow, this being the last day of the big territorial show. The fair is praised by all who visited the capitolcity. A Mongrel Dog Saves Life of An Arizona Brakeman To a common, everyday mongrel ' a little yellow cur of the kind that the dog catcher picks up on the streets John Crowder, a Southern Pacific brakeman, probably owes his life. He is a brakeman who runs on the Lordsburg local. On his run several days ago he sustained a fall from the top of a car. He landed on bis head and shoulders and then rolled down an embankment into a small arroyo, which was dry. Dazed and but ha'f conscious, Crowder lay groaning in his intense sufferings for four hours. It was late in the afternoin when Mexican Orange Crop is Short The Mexican orange crop has either, been short , has been consumed at home or has rotted in the field owing to tbe failure of United States buyers to take it. Something has happened, for only two cars of orangej have passed through the El Paso port 4is year, and tbe Mexican orange season is bow over. As a result of the failure of this crop to be shipped through El Paso, the custom housa of that port has a deScit for October, compared with last year, of over $30,000. This shows what immense shipment have passed through there in previous years. falling off of a sufficient number of cars to make a difference of $30,-000 in duties alone.

Christy, Maricopa, As oiling of streets is not a very expensive matter and is in vogue in all up-to date towns, it might pay our energetic council to look into the matter. Dust would be almost "done for" with the oiling of our streets, which are exceptionally adaptable for that purpose. Why net a chamber of commerce for Tombstone. Such a body is of great help to any city. Bisbee, Douglas and Benson have them, and they are doing a world of good for each place. The latest move at Schietfelin Hall is that Mr. Warkekros will soon install a hard wood iloor for dancing purposes or ekating rink. The hall will then be suitable for mask balls 1 and other large receptions he sustained the fall. He was the rear brakeman, and as the other members of the crew were on the front end of the train, he was not missed until the train reached Benson.

BT THE GOVERNOR OF ARIZOVA. To the People of Arizona: j Thanksgiving Day has become so ' much and so peculiarly an Americin ! institution that we look forward to its near approach with feelings of grateful pleasure. It had its origin with the sturdy pioneers of a new continent. It is hallowed by the customs of our people for nearly three centuries. It is recognized by churches of every creed, and has been embodied in our laws as the great annual American family festival ol Thanksgiving for the mercies, prosperity and happiness of the closing year. The memories of the 5 years gone by of happy family gather- ings li:ive especially endeared the day j to us all, having to those, ot whom j there are so many ot us, who have migrated from the scenes of their earlier years, a peculiar significance of the day. The president of the United States has by his proclamation designated Thursday, the twenty-ninth day of November, for its observance. By the law of tbe nttion, and by the law of Arizona, it is made a legal holiday of the people of this prospr-ous community, to enable-them fittingly and fully to observe and enjoy the ceremonies, all in their own man ner of Thanksgiving Day. Now, therefore I, Joseph H. Kibbey governor of Arizona, do hereby desig- 1 nate and appoint Thursday, November twenty-ninth, 1906, Thanksgiving Day, and recommend its observance and celebration as such. In witness whereof I nave hereunto ..-J X ' i..: Champion Drillers From Cochise.
