a man who has been Secretary, Governor and
Uelegate (to three CongresseaJ or tue lern
tory, should be ashamed ? We think it
does. We further think that, from this day
on, every real Arizonap should see to it that
none but Aritomns are sent to Congress, or
placed in Important positions.
In tbo present crazy scramble for political j
place and power it Is cheering to have one
blub official in. the Territory who stands up
on this manly platform:
"I nnt lioand to grt out of poUllea! life as soon

Noble sentiments: worthy of Cintirsnatiu

represent our territory In uongres.

that cverylning passed on pleasantly, ana

Phoenix is certainly improving. I was in

place, of a valuable acquisition to the "burg"
