For tho past three years the revenues of Mar
icopa county have increased at the rate of ?J0,
000 jier year, while there hate been no improve
ments in tho county property nor any increase
in the number of county officials. At the same
time the rate of taxation has increased; yet,
notwithstanding this increase, the. county has
run behind J.V0.WO in its current accounts, and
tho Hoard of Supervisors has been compelled
to ask the Funding Commission to fund this

county an honest nnd economical administra

The report was received with great
enthusiasm and every plank in the plat
form seemed to be heartily approved by
both delegate and audience. The plat
form and resolutions were adopted with
out a dissenting voice.
H. L. Wharton moved that the order
of business be suspended down to the
nomination for Sheriff. Carried.

I came to this Convention, ladles and gentle
men, to nominate J. II. Montgomery to lie the
next Sherla of this County. In making this
nomination I desire tosaythatMr. Montgomery,
from the time the subject was first mentioned
to him until yesterday, has refused absolutely
to be a candidate for this office. Ho has done
everything that a good citizen could do to avoid
this nomination. He has even gone to the
extreme limits of good politics to put In writing
his absolute declination and to put it in the
hands of his political enemies.
Hut stories havo been circulated concerning
him, and he has been accused of selling out to
the opposition, and the report has even gone
Into details that Mr. Sam Webb tried to bribe
him and had paid him $1000 to decline.
Now, I wish to say to tho peoplo here that the
gentleman who made such a declaration here
on tho streets of Phienlx, made It with malice
and lu justice to John II, Montgomery and also
to Sam Webb, I denounce It as a falsehood.
John II. Montgomery Is an old pioneer in
this country. Ho lias served you In various
iiositlons, and there has never lieen a smirch of
Ishonor placed on his escutcheon. There Is
not property owner but that would be willing
to trust him as much as they would any living
man. If you nominate him lie will accept and
will glvo Mr. Webb one of the hardest rackets
ho ever had In his life. There will be no dirt
thrown. Ho will treat Mr, Webb as a gentlo
man, as I believe him to be.
As a Republican I am proud to place his
namo nt tho head of our county ticket. With
John II. Montgomery at tho head of our ticket
wo will reform some of tho vices that have been
practiced in this county, lleforo this canvass Is
through with wo wilt open your eyes. I will
therefore nlaco the name of John II. Mont
gomery before this Convention as candidate for
heriir. ... ...
Ed S. Gill seconded tho nomination
and moved that tho nomination bo made
Tho motion was carried and J. H.
Montgomery was nominated amid much

years. Ho lias been for a long time In tho em

of integrity and ability, and if you nominate,

If you nominate him he will give Nerl Osborn

In nomination. (Great applause).
On motion of W. A. Hancock. Mr.
Johnston was nominated by acclama
tion. When tho nominations for District At
torney wero reached, N. A. Morford
arose and said :
In tho absence of any one to represent tho
gentleman I shall name for the ollico of Dis
trict Attorney of this County, I will perform
that duty, and take pleasure In placing before
you, gentlemen of tho Convention, the name of
a person well known throughout the County
and also well known throughout tho Territory.
He Is a gentleman of high leal ability; a
gentleman who Is also mi orator, and nu elo
quent one at that, and a gentleman, I think,
who will glvo tho people of this County entire
satlsfaction,aud show their appreciation of him
by electing Hon. Webster Street to be their
District Attorney. (Ureal applause.)
F. .11. Shaw seconded the nomination
of Webster Street ns ho behoved him to

that was unanimously ratified.
At this point the Chairman announced
that a telegram had been received from
Washington giving tho information that

the Convention somewhat by surprise,
but three loyal and hearty cheers wero
given for tho now Governor.

of 20 to 17.
The names of N. A. Morford and H.
C. Powers wero then voted upon for
Councilman by precincts, with the fol
lowing result: Powers 20, N. A. Mor
Upon bcitm called upon for a speech
Governor Powers spoke as follows:
I regret that any question of dissatisfaction
has urlsen In this convention over the position
for Councilman. I have told all my
friends that I did not desire the nomination. I
was sincere, and until some of my friends had
compromised themselves by the attitude that
they had taken, I had mado up my mind that I
would nominate Mr. Morford. 1 would have
been glad to have seen him the nominee of our
party, but as the convention In Its wisdom has
decided between Mr. Morford and myself, I take
the notion of the convention as final, and will
try to do the best I can for the ticket lu this
county, and I shall canvass tho county In tho
Interests of the Republican party.
Friends of Mr. Zullck, I desire you to notify
him at once that ho has an opponent in the
Held, and invito him from his home In New
Jersey (buughtcr) to come buck here to the
desert fields of Arizona and discuss the ques
tions that may come before these people. I
want him to defend his record, I want his
friends to notify him that I shall attack him,
and I shall attack It In no moderate terms. Ho
must come forward and defend It Ho came to
this Territory with a commission in his pocket;
lie served you as Governor for about four vears,
and at tho end of his teun, when the Demo
cratic Convention, which convened in this
house, tried to endorse his administration, after
wrangling for overall hour and a half he only
got oue vote. Now, gentlemen, for a man after
serving the Democratic party four years, and
who can come before his party in Contention,
and can receive but one vote in favor of his
administration, there must be something wrong.
The Convention that met hero a few weeks
n go for the purpose of nominating Mark Smith
for Congressln their platform stated themselves
to be In favor of abolishing all useless olllces,
especially tho offices of Attorney General, Com
missioner of Immigration, Territorial Geologist
ami Superintendent of Public Instruction. Now
1 want Mr. Zullck's friends to tell Mr. Zullck to
come here to make an explanation how it was
that when Mr. Zullck had a two-thirds majority
In both Houses that they increased the salary
of the Attorney General from $1000 tol-IWOn
year. Why didn't they abolish It? Mr. Zullck
Is charged with using his influence to allow tho
emoluments of tho office to be Increased for the
benefit ol his personal friends.
Up to that tlmo the office of Territorial Geo
logist wasraerely nominal, but for tho purpose
of giving ills friend, Dr. Trlppel, a position ho
used his influence to attach a salary and.un
llmtted mileage and traveling expenses to the
office. When they had the power to do so they
did not abolish the office, but they want to
abolish it now. There is not a child in Arizona
but can see through such demagoglsm as that.
There are other things I want him to explain.
I want him to explain tho addition of taw to
the salary of tho 'District Judges of the
Territory. I understand It was through his
advice that tho Fourteenth Legislature in
creased the pay of the District Judges from
fOOO to (l'.MO, but in a tit of retrenchment after
recommending it, he vetoed It.
After he advised his party to pass It, he
turned on them. "Oh, I am better than my
party I will save the people. My party, they
are willing to rob tho people, but 1 will save
them. I, tho virtuous Zullck. (Applause.)
1 want Mr. Zullck as a man of honor to come
up and explain how It was that ho got his
friends Into a hole In that sort of a way and
then deserted them,
Then tho Commissioner of Immigration.
There Is somo trouble about that I want him to
explain. There was no Democrat who wanted
to do away with that ollico when the Democratic
party hail tho power to abolish It, Hut, no,
ho had special favorites ho wanted to put
into that office ami ho could not do it
all at once. Ho wanted to put In
Mr. Farlsh, so he got Mr Cameron King to ac
cept tho ollico temporarily. Mr King was the
sort of a fellow who thought It would bo no
particular harm to take advantage of tho little
fellow from New Jersey, so he had it placed in
the code that the Governor could not remove
tho Commissioner of Immigration. There aro
several things that 1 want Mr. Zullck to explain.
I want his friends to get him here, and they
can't get him hero too quick. I don't want to
bo forced o go to New Jersey to get on his trail.
Now, gentlemen of tho Convention, I thank
you very highly for tho honor you havo con
ferred upon me, and if there is anything In my
record lhat is orydark, I shall try to throw a
little calcium light on it. (Applause.)
Mr. Morford I wish to make a
motion that the nomination of K. C.
Powers be made unanimous in this Con
vention. Motion carried.
Tho next in order of business was the
nomination for Assemblyman. Hon.
J. Y. T. Smith placed in nomination
tho name of Joseph R. Mullen. II. L.
Wharton then placed in nomination tho
name of Ed S. Gill, which was seconded
by Dr. Scott Helm. On motion they
were unanimously elected.
Upon being called upon for a speech
Mr. Gill spoke as follows:
MB. CltAIHMAN ANBGMNTLKMEN op the Con
vention: When Daniel Webster made his great
speech In tho Senate In reply to Mr. Hnyne, of
South Carolina, ho prefaced his remarks by

saying; "Mr. President, I shall enter Upon no
encomiums upon Massachusetts. She needs
none." So 1 will say to you, gentlemen of the
Contention, I shall enter upon noecomlums
on tho Republican party; she needs none.
8h6 comes before you with a record so bright
nd clear that "Ilo who runs may read," and
were I to talk from now until tomorrow's dawn
ami from then unto another dawn, I could not
mention all tho prominent acts of tho Republi

more than has ever before been dono by any

form adopted by tho Republican Territorial

morning, and It proposes to stand by any state
ment It makes. It pledges Its candidates to
glvo to this county an honest and economical
administration. It pledges Its effiirts to abolish
all needless Territorial offices and to reduce
Territorial taxes, and If I am elected and I be
lieve I will bo I shall use my best endeavors to
carry out tho pledges made.
Gentlemen, I do not know that I should say
more. (Cries of "go on"). I do not know that I
should say more, but certainly this Is tho proud
est moment of my life. Far back In the old
Huckcye stato, there Is a good old mother, to
whom shall go ticking over tho wires totilnht
tho news that I havo been honored by my fellow-citizens
In Arizona (applause), so she may
know that although her boy Is far away, as ho
has been for years, ho has tried to le a man,
and be honorable, or ho never would have been
given this honor. (Cheers ami prolonged ap
plause). In responso to calls for a speech from
J. R. Mullen, he said:
It Is not necessary 'or mo to get out and make
you a speech, so I will just say that I thank you
for the nonor you have conferred upon me, and
I will do the best I can to elect tho entire Re
The noxt in tho order of business was

AVasiiixotox, September 20. The
conferees report on the bill for the relief
of settlers on tho Northern Pacific rail
road indemnity lands was agreed to.
Tho aggregate appropriations now
amount to 1(0,002,008. Tho report was
agreed to Senator Aldrich said ho
should ask for a vote on the bill as soon
as it could possibly bo had.
Mr. Morgan having referred to Mr.
Sherman's recent letter to Erastus
Wiman, Mr. Sherman said that the
fitatemcnts thciein wero consistent with
tho position. Ho always held that it
was by mutual legislation, not by treaties,
reciprocity measures would bo carried
out. At the close of Mr. Morgan's
speech Mr. Aldrich called for a vote on
the conference report. This was op
posed by Mr. Cockrell who said Mr.
Carlisle desired to speak but was some
what indisposed today.
Mr. Aldrich asked for unanimous con
sent for a vote at 4 o'clock tomorrow,
but Mr. Cockrell objected. .Mr. Sher
man addressed the Senate on n general
defense of tho principle of protection.
Somo provisions of the bill were too high
and tome too low, but ho admitted the
impossibility of framing a measure to
suit every interest.
Mr. Aldrich said that the conference
report and bill as modified by it Were
printed, and ho did not deem" any fur
ther explanation of its "provi
sions necessary. Ho hoped the Sen
ate would be able to reach a vote
on the report at an t'.irly hour this after
noon. He had no knowledge of the in
tention of Senators on the other side of
the Chamber in regard to debate, but
was awaro of the anxiety of the Sena
tors on both sides to arrive at an early
conclusion of tho business session, and
with that object in view he should ask
for a vote as soon ns it could iwsaibly be
had. Mr. Morgan made a lengthy
speech on the tariiT. He be
lieved the new law to bo n beacon of
prosperity to tho whole country.
As to the reciprocity feature there was
nothing new in the idea of reciprocity.
As to sugar, ho would have given the
people free sugar up to No. 20, Dutch
standard, in the belief that some of the
higher grades would enter into consump
tion without having passed through re
fineries. As to hinder twine, lie felt
that tho manufacturers hail probably
taken advantage of tho opiwrtunity anil
demanded giossly unreasonable prices,
but had done as "much as other human
beings did, even farmers taking advan
tage of high market prices. In conclu
sion, Mr. Sherman expressed hope that
tno manufacturers would avoid these
trusts that gave popular discontent and
would incite fair competition and give
the people the benefits thereof, and of
cheaper production. If they did not do
so. he would be as ready to vote for a
repnal of tho bill as ho is now ready to
voto for it.
Mr. Paddock addressed the Senate,
and said that he must vote against the
conference report. Ho could not con
sider this great economic problem nsone
entirely political in its nature, uflecting,
as it did, interests most vital to his im
mediate constituency and the entire
West. He should not attempt to state
in detail his objections to the report,
but should draw particular attention to
the action of tht) committee on tho sugar
schedule nnd its relation to other pro
tected interests in the bill. He
criticised the. treatment given the
beet sugar interest, and said
it was not pleasant to contemplate,
nordid it particularly incline n Senator
from a Stato whero a strong and most
promising commencement had been
made in tho development of such an
industry to voto for the report, lie
since hoped the reuort would not be
adopted and a now conference ordered.
The conference report was laid aside
informally without action.
Mr. Hoar reported from the committee
a resolution which was adopted de
claring Senators from North and South
Dakota. Montana and Wyoming were
entitled to compensation from tho date
of the admission of those States.
Mr. Morgan ollered a resolution
which was agreed to, calling on the
President for copies of all ortlers and
instructions since March 1, respecting
the regulation of fur seal fisheries in

San Fkancisco, September 20. The
steamer Umatilla arrived tills morning
from Victoria and Pugct Sound ports.
Among her passengers was Lieutenant
Hroadbent of the Revenue Cutter
Oliver Wolcott which latter, it was said,
was to proceed to Hehring Sea to arrest
approaching beulcrs. The Lieutenant
comes here to relieve Lieutenant Hen
ham of the United States tug Hartly,
in tho customs' Fervice. Before Lieu
tenant Hroadbent left Port Townsend
where the Wolcott is lying, orders for
him to proceed to Hehring Sea were
countermanded from the department at
Washington. The probable reason of
this was that she is In an unseaworthy
condition. She put into Port Townsend
to have her boilers repaired. The state
ment that the steamer Bertha, which
leaves for Kodiak tomorrow, would
take the Wolcott's place, is denied by

Last Friday, Detective John Curtin,
of San Francisco, accompanied by
Special Agent W. F. Sewall, of the
Home Mutual Insurance Company,
arrived in Napa and began looking into
the origin of the numerous fires which
the town has been subject to the last
two years. Flamont and Horrell were
the ringleaders of a partv of boys and In
each case performed all the work of
setting fire to the buildings. Others
were simply onlookers.
The plan of operations by tho boys
was to saturate straw or rairs with
kerosene, then on the top pile to place n
lighted candle one inch long. They
would then go home and to bed.
' Flamont was charged with setting fire
to II. J. Haddley's residence, temporarily
occupied; two years ago to tho public
school hou'c; last July to a cottage
owned by August Muller. In only the
first named case was the attempt" suc
cessful. Seven or eight other attempts
are also credited to him, but no positive
evidence is procurable.
The Horrell boy is charged in aiding
in the two last named fires. After his
arrest Flamont confessed to setting fire to
Haddley's house and Muller's house but
denied having anything to do with the
school house lire. He was takon before
Justice Thompson and his bail fixed at

Alnrm Felt nt tlio Incessant ItnliiA on tho
San Fkancioco, September 29. The
Associated Press dispatches from a great
many places in the State indicate that
the rainy season has commenced. Tele
grams announce that rain has fallen in
Auburn, Vacaville, Nevada City, Oro
ville, St. Helena, Corning, Marysville,
etc. In some places the damage done
haslxjen infantcssimal, but in others,
as at St. Helena, it is thought that un
less the rain ceases, the damage done to
raisins and grapes has been extremely
heavy. There was quite a heavy fall of
rain in San Francisco today.
San Dieoo, September 29, It ha.
been raining in this county lor several
days in an intermittent fashion, and
the probabilities are for more. Raisin
growers of Cajon, Sweetwater and other
fruit valleys are in a gloomy mood, and
say that if clear weather does not come
soon it will result in a loss of over $100,
000, and the raisin crop, which prom
ised to nearly double the output of last
year, will bo reduced to an average. The
present storm is the heaviest ever
known in San Diego during September.
Tuacv, Cal., September 29. Half
an inch of rain fell last night and

The Mass of the Irish People Left
Entirely at the Mercy of

spoke at St. Helens, tonight, to a large
audience. He gave a graphic account of
his experiences during his recent tour of
Ireland. He gave instances illustrating
arbitrary and tyrannical methods of the
A week ago John Dillon went to ad
dress constituencies in Kast Mavo. Mr.
Dillon found the platform of the station
surrounded bv police and the military,
and was told if he used illegal lan
guage it would bo the magistrate's duty to
disperse the meeting. Now this simply
meant the Magistrate would be tho '
Judce as to w hether Dillon's language
would bo legal or illegal and in tho
second place what appeared almost in
credible, it meant if Dillon used lan
guage that the Magistrate considered
illegal, it was the Magistrate's duty to

The Tipperary prosecutions had
cruelly blighted the hopes of the Union
ists and given the lie to their rose-
colored pictures. Tho proceedings of
the last fortnight in Tipperary would
have the inevitable effect of rallying
every Nationalist, lay and clerical, and
of once more closing the Nationalists'
He (Morelv) had been criticized for
going to Ireland. Balfour would neither
go to Ireland himself nor let anyone
else go. He (Morelv) went to Tipperary
uecause ne leit mat tno proceedings
there marked the turning point in Great
Britain and because he felt that the
Government was going to drive a nail
into its colli n and be wanted to see
the first blow of the hammer.
When he arrived at Tipperary gather
ings of people were few in number and
no obstruction offered He never saw
such an act of folly as the attitude of the
authorities. Colonel Caddell stated in
the Court room that it was one of the
most disorderly gatherings he ever
Three or four English ladies, who
occupied scats in the court room, laughed
at the absurdity of Caddell's statement.
It has been asserted that he (Morley)
and his companions were followed to
court by an immense multitude. This
he nbso'lutely denied. At no time did
the armed men, who defend tho court
house, number less than three to five
ngaiiistcivilians. It was an insignificant
and harmless a crowd as lie ever saw in
The police refused admission to tho
townsmen and he Haw a solicitor flung
violently from theTgates and assaulted.
O'Brien went out with Dillon and Har
rison and protested against the exclu
sion of the people. The police drew
batons without the shadow of provoca
tion and blood began to flow freely.
He saw no stones thrown. He would
undertake to say that a couple of Eng
lish constables would have done every
thing necessary to guard access to the
Court. Harrison went out to constables
and expostulated but the only reply was
a blow on tho head causing blood to flow
freely. He (Morely) saw a constable
strike rejwrter Keating a murderous
blow on the mouth drawing blood and
knocking him from the wall.
Outside the gates the police used their
batons ferociously upon the heads and
bodies of defenseless townsmen, several
of whom were brought in dripping with
blood. He (Morley) went to Colonel
Caddell and told him he ought to open
tho jrates and admit the people.
Then he went into tho court room, but
found nobody except two magistrates
and a few reporters. After the gates
were opened and everybody who wished
to were admitted, the court room was
not tilled with a "tumultuous" throng, of
which Colonel Coddel had spoken, but
was as quiet and orderly as if in church.
The rioting was wholly on one side. If
Colonel Caddel acted in the first place
as he did in deference to his (Morley's)
wishes, there would not have been a
tittle of disorder.
The whole thing was a clumsy blunder,
but to commit a blunder when dealing
with armed men was a crime. If Bal
four produced in tho Commons what
was published as an oilicial version of
the affair, he (Morely) would riddle it to
pieces in ten minutes. To .resort to
batons was deplorable, lawless, and a
Balfour's system was responsible for
these scenes. Through three and a half
years Belfour defended every act of the
executive through thick and thin, right
or wrong, from the odious and wicked
slaughter at Mitchelletown onward.
Bolfour always lefused to institute effec
tive public inquiry, he always denied
the truth of the charges made against
the police. He always refused to believe
a word of an Irish Member of Parliament
and thus tho Irish peoplo had been left
wholly nt the mercies of the authorities
without any supervision, without help
and without hope.
No wonder the Irish people did not
respect tho law I No wonder tliey hated
the Government which inspired such
abuse of executive force.
