The Citizen of ihw date coutains tho
poem of th: ' Washerwoman's Song" by
Eugene F. Wr, which b many is con¬
sidered one of the fineet tUmgH iu thd

Far'.aod'H is oae of the most expressive
and convincing eays upon the subject
that we have ever read. It truthfully

thousands of nia who have in vain at¬
tended chnroh from boyhood up, and
wi.o have read every thing that come in

Eearch of light This letter ot Mr. Mc-
Farland's in our opinion will do more to

quarter of a century. Having inserted

are shortly to advance. The bears in
wheat opened their campaign six months
ago. JJnt armed with tho outlook of a
shorfcrop at home und abroad the bulls
for a time bellowed them down nnd it
was with difiiculty they coula stand their
ground. Wheat was forced down to
$1.03, when it should have
been $1.20. For some eightoeu years
past the average annual crop of wheat
in Europe has been about eleven hun¬
dred million bushels. In 18S3 it
amounted to about ten hundred and
sixty-six millions, and the year before to
about twelve hundred and seventy mil
lion bushels. Last year also tho potato
crop of Central Europe was very heavy
and India unusually productive. Theeo
facts account for the continued induTer
ence of Luropcan importing countries
to the anxiety of the United to sell its
nirplus stock of grain. But it ii be¬
lieved that the grain market will im¬
prove, with the opening spring, aud that
we shall be able to get rid of our but
plus at a moderate advance over present
prices. Capitalists as well os men with
small holdings will all toon learn that
they were scared without cause, and be¬
gin to operate with their accustomed
vifor with the opening ot spring.
Here in Arizona the outlook is very
muoh more fuvcrablc than it was n year
ago. lhen the Tombstoue mines were
threatened by tho increased tlow of
water in the mines; thcro were no
promising new mines being opened
up, and then to add to the
further disparagements of the sea¬
son, wc bad the Apache outbreak which
damaged the territory beyond all calcula¬
tion. This season however, we begin
with more tlattering prospects. The
Longfellow copper mines which have
been worked under great disadvantages,
have or will have very soon, a railroad
completed to tho mines, which will
enable the company to double or even
quadruple the output of former years.
Tho Tombstone mines have been cleared
did last TheBisbeo mines are raes-
ccllent condition and will mako their
us jbI successful run. The name may bo
said of the Silver King. Several new
mines have been developed and are
about ready to start up. The Kay Cop¬
per company will make a good record
so soon as the machinery is up. Tho
Verde und other companies in Yavapai
county will greatly increase their yield
over last yenr. Tho Ejporanza company
in this county will soon start up, and the
Total Wreck company may also be heard
from soon, as excellent ore has tieen
found. The old Peck mine will be
worked again, besides a score of other
mines and mills wo could name, which

Either Chicago or San Fraucisco couUt
have raised the necessary moans long
before this date if they could have had
the statuo. The latest account of the
progress of tho work on the statue, is
to the effect that it is rapidly approach
lug completion. The trunk is still under
busy artistic hands, nnd to view it as it
stands, surrounded aud partly inclosed
in a wooden scaffold, gives u local habita
tion nnd a namo to an additional won
aer of tho world. Tho work is being
complete! in eectiou, tho arms, hands,
fingers, feet, toes, eta, etc, being under
different skilled artists. Tho staircase,
by which visitors will ascend into the
head and take a birdseye view
Gotham and the surroundings, is com¬
plete. The statue will be so udmirable
in details as to rival tho most skilled
workmanship of the ancient Greeks.
ArrKit so long a timo the trustees of
tho Lick estate say they are prepared to
pay to the sub-committee named in the
trust deed tho bequest oi S150.000 for
tV erection and maintenance of free
be '.hs in San Francisco. The committee
have not adopted n plan for the con¬
struction ot the baths, but as soon as
they do they will call on tho trustees of
tho Lick estate for the funds. "The
purpose of these baths is merely to give
a convenient chanco to take a salt water
plunge in the summer season," sBys ono
of the committee. It would seem that
$150,000 would bo umple to build ele¬
gant hatha in the city and leave enough
to maintain them. If they are to be
simply plunge baths they will be of but
littlo benefit to the people, as they mind
necessarily be a long ways from the
homes of most of the city's population.
It now lonkfras if BuckncrV bill pro
hibiting the issue of bank notes ot a less
denomination than So will be defeated-
as it should. In view of the present
scarcity ot small notes and the demand
for them, Buckner'sT bill seems very
much out of place. Bland, the silver
man, intimates to a correspondent that
he does not favor any action in relation
to the trade dollar, during the present
session, because, forsooth, "if we got
started wo might go too far." Hence a
currency of more intrinsic value than
any other ot thesame denomination, but
which is at a largo discount because ot
a very foolish and arbitrary rule, must
continue to be imposed on the people,
because onr congressmen will not do
anything for fear of the effect on the
coming presidential election.
Representative Tullt, of Califor¬
nia, must havo been deceived by some
of the patent medicine men. He has in¬
troduced a bill in congress requiring the
proprietors of all patent medicines to
discloso the formula and contents of all
such medicines. The bill fnrthor pro¬
vides that experts stall be appointed to
examine into thameritsof the medicines,
