Territorial Secretary. Charley Las
many friends who believe that he is
booked for a seat cn the right hand of
the appointing power.

The press of the Territory, regardless
of political bias, are a unit in favor of L.

their representatives, the public preta.
Dcnbar of the Phoenix Gazette, is re
tnrted to have Bent word that Foster

John wired to Grover to hold on a little
till he could get to Washington and give
him pointers on the 6ituat;on. Thi

Secretary Carlisle's order direct

except himself is anything else but po

have heretofore been able to get any
information they wished by simply go
ing to the head of the division or bureau
ir charge of that particular matter,
wnile now they must take their chances
of being able to get at the Secretary.
Had a Republican Secretary issued such
an order there would have been a
Democratic howl about star-chniber
methods from one end of the country
to the other.
Mr. Atox Seidl. the wdl-known
New York orchestra leader, was in
Chicago recently and was given a view
of "The MacKayeSpectatoriuin" model.
Upon hie return to New York he was
interviewed by an Evenirg Post repor
ter and said: "This summer's experi
ment," (alludding to 'The MacKaye
Spectatoriun') "will ultimately lead to a
grand American Biyreuth Festival,
which will surpass anything ever wit
nessed at Bayreuth; indeed," Mr Seid!
eaid, "here will be realised what Wag
ner dreamed of. the rainbow, for in
stance, which in Bayreuth was a failure,
will here be a scenic marvel," Mr. Seiil
was very enthusiastic and thought this
undertakiug would inaugurate a new
era in the history of ttage spectacle.
Whether the International Monetary
Conference will b9 reconvened is a ques
tion which cannet be regarded as de
finitely settled as yet. Of course, h
great deal depeeds upon the attitude of
the Union States. The free-silver men
are preparing to 6ecure, if posible, a
declaration from the Senate in favor of
reconvening the conference, on the
ground that there has been a charge of
sentiment respecting the monetary ques
tion since th3 conference adjourned.
What success they will meet with re
mains to be ee?n. The attitude of Great
Britain is also a factor of imp rtance
in the direction of the question
whether the conference is to be
reconvened, and this will d-per.d
of curse upon the view taken of the
matter by the present administration
there. An indication of this view is
found in the declaration made this
week by the British Chancellor of the
Exchequer, who 6aid in reply to a ques
t'on in the House of Commons, that if
the proceeding in Brussels should be
resumed the English delegates would
be instructed to oppose every bioietall c
scheme proposed at the conference.
The rainfall in parte of Australia dur
ing February was something enormous
far in excess of all previous seasons
known to the records. In one mountain
locality of the coast eixty-sc-ven (CT)
inches of rain fell in three (3) days, a
statement which would appear alto
gether incredible were it not for the
fearful floods which came in evidence of
the vast downpour. Brisbane, which
had been supposed to be safe from flood
waters, was inundated to a ruinous
extent. In the neighborhood of that
city ten inches of rain fell in a single
night. The estimated loss to Brisbane
and its suhurbs is 10,000.000. i"n eom
of the coast mountain ranges of Austra
lia the rainfall for the present season
has amounted to eighty inches. Ti e
rains and the floods are Eaid to be much
jrreater than the oldest of the native
blacks had ever known.
There is a lesson to be learned from
the heavy losses at Brisbane. A town
or city cannot ba said to be secure
against inundation if its protection is no
greeter than enough for the exclusion cf
water at the highest recorded flood level.
It akes a century or two of experience
to determine the maximum flood line,
' and even then there is no warrant that
flood of unprecedented magnitude may
cot occur. The expenditure of a million
dollars for levees might have 6ived
Brisbane nine times that amount last
month. L. A. Ex Dress.
What's the matter with Carlisle,
anyway?" was ejaculated by more than
one good Democrat on the appointment
r.f General Lozan's son to a lucrative
and responsible position in the treasury
department- But if that app intraeDt
merited censure what will they say of
him cow? Two applications for light
house keepers were recently filed in his
department and on the cases of lbe ap
plicants being pressed by the "pull" the
Bon. Secretary eaid that he was "look
ing to efficiency in the service rather
th&n to Dolitical preferment." There
was not so far as he knew, any vacancy
nor had any complaints reached him
that would cause a vacancy to be ere
ated. Snch talk as this will break any
pnll and make fad the heart of the
STAtIP AND FINE RIDDEN.
A business man who returned last
week from a trip into Mexico, said he
bdlieved that in the present exhorbitant
stamp and revenue laws, frequent un
just and protracted imprisonments, and
general policy of imposition and bull
dozing as practiced by Mexican officials,
material was hatching for a revolution.
His own case was one of reimbursinent
which he ha J b en required to make for
lumber which had been cut by his rep
resentatives south of the international
line. He had beea commanded by a
Mexican court to pay a certain sum.
When ho tendered the amount in Mexi
can money, it was refused and American
money demanded, thongh no specified
form of currency had been mentioned
in the crder of the court The case was
evidently one of depredation committed
iu Mexico, and the amount payable in
re-euiburni-nt had been adju tad by a
Mexican court. Yet the officials refused
to accept Mexican Eilver in eetllement
because it happens to be worth one
third less thin American coin and for
sooth the defendant in the ca-e was an
American. He had already lost valuable
time and been put to great expense in
ineffectual atiemps to have the matter
settled on th9 basis of Mexican money.
In the course of the trip he came
acrots several instances of Mexican
high-handedness in other matters.
Upon being conducted through one of
the prisons he encountered an Ameri
can who said he hhd been confined for
three weeks for what he could not im
agine. He reported this caae to the
American con' ul who at once secured
the release of the prisoner.
Stamr s are required to be affixed not
only to documents ?jf all kinds but to
many of the articles of common use and
consumption. Americans Lave been
amused at partaking of butter in the
Mex can restaurant wrapped in a
Etamped licen cioth.
These tines an impositions are to be
sure, inflited principally upon the Mexi
can eubjects themselves and remonstr
atca would probably never be heard
weie it not for the occasional attempt to
coerce American travelers or temporary
residents. The latter so long as they
are compelled to remain within the con
fines of the stamp and fine ridden Re
public, have learned to be discreetly
silent as complaints and want of eubmis
siovnefs: only produce additional indig
nities. It is only upon a; return to
American soil that from time to time
the long pent up vials of wrath are let
loose. As far the Mexican's themselves
who are the principal and constant suf
fers there seems to be nothing to do but
be patient or break out in revolutions,
as teems likely unless reforms be swift
The name of James Finley has be-?n
mentioned for the position upon the
Brd i f Supervisors mad-i vacant by
Ir. Stevens' death. If appointed Mr.
Finley will make as ileal supervisor,
lie s a man of exf-erierce in business
matters, of ri;.e judgment and sound
jommon sense. He is a long time resi
dent of Pima county where he has ex
tensive property interests. No man has
a beti-.r knowledge of the needs of the
couisty than he. Personal observation
and careful study of its resources, an in
timate acquaintance with nearly all its
leading citizens, and a thorough knowl
edge of the current events as well as the
past of the county have eminently quali
fied him for the office. The responsi
bilities of a supervisor should lift the
office above the plana of party politics.
Mr. Finley, though a Democrat, is
warmly endorsed by the Citizen.
CojirrAixTs just and reasonable are
being coistai.tiy made by ruining men
and prospectors, against the fencing of
Irg eareas of land by cattlemen. No man
who is acquainted with the configura
tion of the uplands of Arizona, but what
knows of the almost impossibility of
road making along the foot of a moun
tain range. Ddep and impassible can
yons cut the mesas at right angles with
the mountains and thus compelling
travellers t3 follow the vall.-ys till oppo
site the particular portion of the moun-
ain they wish to enter and then drive
directly toward it. This, however, is
now often prevented by mil: s of con-
inuous fencing in the valleys, thus
irtually shutting out the miners from
the mountains or compelling them to
follow a difficult and circuitous route.
This can easily ba remedied by the
legis'ature paesing a bill vesting the
beard of supervisors of the several
counties with authority to open a road
every nr.le if necessary, for the conven
ience of the public. Arizona is a mining
country end nothing should be put in
the way of discovery and development of
its mineral resources.
The Live Stock Sanitary Commissions
is a ffcrce and should be abolished. What
does it do or what ha? it done to merit
existence at a cost of thousands of dol
lars a year? Absolutely nothing. If
the legislature ever had an opportunity
to lop off a useless expenditure of the
people's money they certainly have one
in the sanitary commission. Of the
2),OK)or more dollars alredy piid out
in that direction not one penny has been
meritoriously or deservedly earned.
At.tiiol'ch it is true the valleys of
both the Sonoita and Santa Cruz in the
southern part of the county are plenti
fully dotted with dead cattle, it is cer
tain that for this season at least lostes
are at an end. Already on the hillsidtB
as well as in the low places various kinds
of feed have sprung ap and the animals
may now be 6een grazing high up the
hills hundreds of feet over the roads.
The policy of making a newspaper at
tractive and readable at the expense of
trustworthiness and journalistic decency,
is one that inevitably reacts upon the
perpetrators besides rendering them at
once the laughing 6tock of the fraternity.
There is a proper medium for works of
fiction and the imagination.
Owe feature of Washicgton's work at
hall will be tilted up with paper files
writing 1ab!es, det-ks and other furni
ture, and here it is expected that visi
tors from the State of Washington can
find their home paper, receive their
mail and write th ir letters. Epecial
effort will be made to make the visiting
newspaper men fel at home in this de
partment. From this office will bo sent
at least once a week nea's bulletins about
Washington's 6ha-e in the World's Fair
to every paper in this State and to one
principal paper in each State and Ter
ritory, besides many special illustrated
articles to the mcst important publica
tions of the worid. As the work of this
State at the Exposition is in the nature
of a'great advertisement, it is hoped to
m-ke the Department of Information
serve to the best posible advantage in
this line. There is beicg prepared a
complete list .of all the papers in this
State, and it is hoped to have every one
of them kept on fi e at Chicago, during
the entire six months of the Exposi
tion. There is now no Territory which pos
sesses t-uch varied industrial prospects
as does Arizona. It has a most inviting
climate, a rich and productive -oil, and
an excellent system of irrgation. It is
espt cially adapted tothe'growth cf every
variety of fruit and all of the most ten
der vegetables, while its general agricul
tural capabilities are unsurpassed. As an
agricultural, fruit growing and wine
producing section there is no portion of
the republic destined to surpass Arizona,
while its mineral and other resources
are varied and inexhaustible.
The Territory is increasing rapidly in
population as well as in industrial devel
opement, and is peopled with an in
telligent and enterprising a population
as can be found in the West Schools
and churches and all the evidences of a
well ordered and cultured civilization
abound. The Territory is already
knocking at the door of the Union for
adrnk-sion as a State, acd justice re
quires that this demand be at once com

An Ancient llrltinh Village.
An interesting discovery was recently
made at Glastonbury. Somersetshire, o:
the remains of an ancient lake village.
From sixty to seventj' low mounds, ris
ing from one to two feet above the sur
rounding soil, and from twenty to thirty
foot across were found on the level moor
w hich stretches to the British channel.
A section of the mounds revealed mor
ticed oak beams, resembling those of
the well-known palisades of the cran
nogs of Scotland, and well-defined stra
ta of cla, charcoal and ashes. The
total thickness of these lods was three
feet six inches, and within them were
detected three separate hearths, super
imposed one above the other. Bronze
objects, four fibula? of the LaTenetype,
and massive spiral finger rings were
discovered among the relics, with a few
objects of iron too much corroded to
determine what they were intended for.
Xumerous objects of bone, an abun
dance of pottery, much broken, and or
ganic remains, including beans, wheat,
rye, nutshells and a large number of
bons, presumably of domestic animals,
were also discovered. The remains have
been assigned to the "Late Celtic"
Origin or the Waltz.
A young Australian traveler claims to
have discovered that the waltz was the
creation of neither a German or a Swiss,
but of the ostriches of Africa. He as
serts that every morning at sunrise

and begin a regular and graceful move

Harshaw. Mar. 21. Both mine and

15 men being employed on the former
and seven or eight at the latter. A
feeling of uneasiness exists in the camp
however as to how long even the prese
sugnt activity will continue, ims is
caused partly by the astounding action

attached $2400 of silver in the form of

writ of attachment in the suit lately-
entered by A. Hoover against Senator
A. A. McGovney of Colorado Springs
for 2,704. Wild rumors were so
afloat that the company's account at the
Consolidated bank at Tucson had been
greatly overdrawn; and other such with
out foundation. It is understood here
that the present management has a
heavy payment to make upon their

by Feme that unpleasant developments
may be manifested April 1 next payday.

Harshaw, whila rendered a dull camp

is singularly favored in the personnel of
its dispensors of mnlt and spirituous

senior Judge Jones, a California fjrty

throughout the whole of which he
served with distinction, derives his title

The judge has been in Harsha 12
years now, and while there his only con
nection with the law has consisted in
acquiring ownership of the jail wh:ch he
agrees to rent for incarceratory purpose
for $50 a year. He has nevertheless not
failed to hand down many valuable de
cisions upon the relative merits cf white
rye and Kentucky borbon.
The other legal limb of Harshaw is
Al Perry who by his j-ecent appoint
ment by the supervisors as justice of the
peace has added new glory to his pre
vious distinction as Dick FarrelPs store
keeper and bartender. Al is a 6plecd d
fellow of generous nature, liberal, kind
hearted proclivities and plays a first
class game of billiards.
With him it is not alone the inkv
cloak nor customa-y suit of solemn black
that betoken legal lore. Blue overalls
and flannel shirt are good enough for his
judgship. His trials, of which so far he
has had but one, when he fined the
butcher $5 for getting drunk and shoot

One excellent feature of this is that
while he is disposing of old cases, inter
