IF BARNES FINDS WHITNEY?
If William C. Whitney, of New York,
is acquainted with Judge W. H. Barnes,
of Tucson, and it Mr. Whitney beoomeB
coenizant of the fact that the chief of
the Arizona democracy has his war
paint on, Mr. Whitney had better peel
his weather eye and keep a cloee look
out for squalla; for according to the San
Francieoo Gall of the 3d inst-, the judge
ia scalp hunting in Chicago; hia toma
hawk and knife are sharpened for the
fray, and he will never be satisfied with
lees than a good big lock of the New
Yorker's capillary covering. Here is
what the Gall aays:
Judge W. EL Barnes and Wiley E.
Jones, delegates from Arizona, who have
just arrived in the oity, say that the
delegation leans toward Bland, but any
candidate will be acceptable as long as
the platform declares for silver. Judge
Barnes is an old time resident of Illinois.
He was appointed to a judgeship in
Arizona under the first Cleveland ad'
ministration, and has einoe been a resi
dent of that territory. Judge Barnes is
after the scalp of William G. Whitney,
of New York.
"I just want to meet that fellow Whit
ney , said Judge Barnes. "I just want
to meet that fellow," said the Arizona
judge, as he quaffed a few paragraphs
of red liquor in the cafe of the Audi
torium annex tonight, "and I will make
him swallow hia insulting language

ing to repudiate the national debt. I
want to tell him to hia teeth that the

They do not want to see the national
honor questioned. It is only eueh men
as Whitney who talk that way. We are

his crowd oan rail, rave and tear their
hair as muoh as they like. They will

While Judge Barnes was denouncing
Whitney many silver men who were
clinking glasses about the tables of the
brilliantly illuminated cafe listened at
tentively, and at the conclusion of the
little speech there was generous ap
plause. Then the colored waiter stepped
up to the judge and remarked: "Boss,

The inventive geoius of man is not

fact ia established by an investigation of

in McKinley a president wbo will work

not play into tbe hands of British free

My Dear Sir:
Yours of tbe 30tb nit. referring sup
erintendent of Coconino oounty inquiry
concerning employmentof teachers, eta,
is at band.
Answering tbe same I must call your
attention to Sec. 28, Subdiv. 8, p. 19, of
school law. That provides that boards
of trustees may, (and this means shall),
at any time alter the annual ecnool elec
tion and qualification of the new mem
bers of tbe sohool board, enter into eon
tract with teaohers, etc. There can be
but one meaning to this insofar as in
tent is concerned.. end that ia: That
the legislative intent was, that tbe new
board that bad to deal with tbe teaob
era for the ensuing year should employ
them. Now as to the time when the
trustees assume duty, you will notice
that section 2, act 82, 18th assembly,
amended section 50 of the old sohool
law as to that That act substitutes
March for June, thereby fixing tbe time
for holdiag tne elections, and April for
July, thereby fixing the time when tbe
newly elected trustees shall assume tbe
duties of office. This will be found on
page 17, new sohool law.
Therefore, as the trustee elect must
be elected in March instead of June,
as provided in tbe old law. and must as
sume his duties of office in April instead
of July as provided in tbe old law, snd
as tbe law on that subject provides for
tbe employment of teaohers after the
eleotion and qualification of new mem
bers of boards, it necessarily follows
tbat the employment must be made by
the newly elected members with other
members on tbe boards.
I am very truly yours,

Spain bow proposes to flood Cuba
with depreciated paper currency, prob
ably with a view of transferring what
coin there is in the island to the royal

very beginning, this desperate resort to
cheap paper money has at least the
element of consistency in its favor.

ENGLAND AFRAID OF UKIN-
The other day we were told in a cable

McKinley." Now a cable dispatch from
London is headed, "England Fears Mc
Kinley." Of Spain we have already

once imperial power fears that President
McKinley would put an end to the Span
ish war ot extermination in Cuba and
show respect for the wishes of congress
and the will of tbe American people by
acknowledging the just claim of the pa
triots to recognition as belligerents.
England's fear is of another kind and
based on another cause. The London
