Mct Florid Government Report Yet
Sent In to Cause a Ripple Among
It takes a man of genius to trans
form a dry "Pub. Doc" Into a docu
ment of human Interest. A man
must .have .imagination and tho are
of youth. !WTn such 'a man appears,
and gilds the dry page 'of tacts with
the color of .romance he ts hailed with
joy by the scribes and Philistines. He
is not without honor, even in his own
country. And when he performs tho
doubly difficult feat of casting a
glamor of poosy over a particularly
haggard and tough portion of the na
tional domain, he is entitled to all
the publicity that the government
printing office grants.
Walla Walla Man in Office.
Such a man is Col. Alexander O.
Brodle, governor of Arizona, formerly
stationed at Port Walla Walla, He is
a man of war and strenuous deeds.
He served with Roosevelt in Cu&,
and for years has wresMoJ with na
ture as a civil and irrigating engineer
in Arizona. He is tanned with the
passionate cares of the desert, and
there is a ruggedness about him that
comports with 'the face of Arizona in
Its wildest spots. But Governor Bro
die's annual report, just from the
printing office, reveals that under a
grim exterior there is a fancy as warm
as the Yuma sun and as richly color
ed as the variejeated onyx of Big Bug,
He takes the entire territory from the
Mongollones to Olla Bend and from
Whetstone to Chlmehuevi, and not a
spot Is touched upon that Is not
Governor. Brodle Practical,
Under the heading "Natural ,Scen
ery," which seems to warn the read'
er that artificial Bcenery Is a thing
apart. Governor Brodle sings;
"Xature has given to the world ho
picture more beautiful than the Grand
Canyon" of the Colorado In Northern
Arizona. The marvelous beauty and
sublimity of the gorge is fast, spread
ing the fame of .this territory to all
portions of the world as the home of
wonderful natural scenery. An ade
quate expression of its bewildering
phases of grandeur is scarcely con
veyed to the mind by description; only
those who have stood on the rim
of the canyon and looked down u)ion
the great expanse of erode carved and
painted earth can appreciate fully
this great "work of nature.
A Florid Government Report.
"The traveler finds in it a power
of concentration which holds Aim a
prisoner to Its charm; each day
brings out some new ptase of beauty,
the gorge deepens, its borders stretch
further on, and the great spectacle
gradually passes beyond the power of
mind to comprehend. The impression
it makes defies all other scenes to rob
it of the place it holds supreme."
No official of tho government. In
the face of these bewildering, phases
of grandeur, can expect to TOb Col.
Brodle of the place he holds supreme
as an illustrator of annual reports.
There Is a power of concentration j
which holds the reader prisoner to
its charms; but the imagination Is
led on by Governor Brodle In an ex
panse of erode, carved and painted
description that might easily require
another Grand Canyon upon which to
exhaust itself. He passes feverishly
Colorado Canyon, Not so Bad.
"The great canyon can not be com
prehended at a glance. The first
glimpse of It .leaves only an impres
sion of vastness and solitude. But a
more careful survey brings to view
the various strata, the fantastic
shapes of its jocks, the wonderful
light and shadows and the beautiful
So the magician, with his wand,
conjures up fantastic shapes, and
passing a mystic slide before the
eyes, casts upon the varlotiB strata
the light thnt never was upon sea or
land; so that the' ravished reader of
the report joins eagerly in the clinch
er with which the' governor of Ari
zona closes his song.
Finishes His Report.
"Here nature, surrounded by the
'forest primeval,' with its gnarled
trees and tangled network of mistle

ness, solitude and inaxailK'int color-ing,,-whlch

adequately describe. Tourists say
that Europe has nothing to compare
with this truly sublime spectacle."
Thus says the governor of Arizona.
Surrounded by his primoval fancy
with Its gnarled and tangled network
of witchery, he couches his report in
grandeur and magnificent coloring,
against which neither the governor of
Oklahoma nor the neighboring gover
nor of New Mexico can hope to com
pete. Thero is a vastness and soli
tude that is unique, and it ripens only
in Arizona, But it Is more than that

The United States Now the Greatest
Producer of Copper in the World.
A few historical facts about copper
are given by tho American Metal
Market as follows:
Copper was one of the first metals
extracted from ores by man.
There aro evidences that a prehis
toric race in America possessed the
art of putting a keener and more last
ing edge on copper tools than is now
The ancient world of Greece and
Homo possessed stores of copper.
There are good reasons for believ
ing that tho Phoenecians knew of the
copper deposits of Great Britain ear
lier than 1000 years B. 0.
Spain haa been supplying copper to
the world for 2000 years at leaat.
At the beginning of the eighteenth
century the Cornwall mines in Great
Britain were producing probably over
three-quarters of the world's supply
One hundred years ago the United
States, Spain, Chile, Mexico, Canada,
South Africa and Tasmania, which
now makes 85 per cent of the world's
copper, were not producers, or, at
the most, of only a fow tons each.
