NO NEED OF REVISION
OPINION OE MR, DALZELL
He is Willing Though Not to Ignore Those
Who Think Otherwise
He Further Assures His Hearers That Whatever the
Republicans do About the Tariff Will be Done
Washington. Feb. 26. The climax of
the general debate on the army appro
priation bill in the house came today
when Mr. Dalzell. recognized as one of
the foremost protectionists or the coun
try, delivered an exhaustive speech in
defense of the republican party and its
polities in which he upheld the prin
ciple of the protective tariff. He said
thai under It the I'nited States had be
come the greatest manufacturing na
tion in the world. He did not believe
that there was any necessity for tariff
revision but he thought it well to rec
ognize the claims of those who think
there should be some alterations.
Whatever that revision was, provided
the republicans were successful at the
next election, he assured his hearers, it
would be in accordance with the repub
lican theory of the protection of Amer
ican industries an the wages of Amer
ican working men.
The American tariff system was at
tacked by Mr. Houston of Tennessee,
who charged that the trusts alone were
benefitted and he urged revision. Other
addresses were made by Mr. Sherwood
of Ohio in support of the bill to pen
sion soldiers of the civil war at one
dollar a day. The army appropriation
bill was read for amendment. Its con
sideration was not concluded when the
A BILLION IN GOLD
Washington, Feb. i6. Tha strength
of the I'nited States treasury at the
present time was commented on in the
house today by Mr. Boutell of Illinois
Ho said he had just been informed by
Treasurer Treat that for the first time
gold coin and bullion of the United
States had reached and passed the sum
of l.ftOo.nOQ.OOO, an event so extraor
dinary, he said, "that it would be
chronicled and commented upon with
surprise and amazement by every fi
nancial center in the world. An event
which all citizens of the republic, w ith
out regard to party affiliation, may
well contemplate with satisfaction and
pride." The announcement of Mr. Bou
tel' was greeted with applause.
TWO NOMINATIONS CONFIRMED.
Washington, Feb. 26. The senate
today confirmed the nominations of
Louis A. Coolidge of Massachusetts to
be assistant secretary of the treasury
and Charles P. Granfield of Missouri
to be first assistant postmaster gen
eral. Se'-en democratic senators ex
pressed the opinion that Granfield's
appointment so so responsible a posi
tion should not have been made. It
was pointed out that he was connected
with the postoffice department during
the r-H'ent scandals. Holding a posi
tion of trust it was said he should
have been cognizant of wrong doing
on the part of his superiors. It was
shown however, that jGnindfield had
received his promotion to be first as
sistant postmaster general because of
his long service in the department, and
that he had earned an enviable reputation.

necessary to make it of service. Mr.

I HE W ICKENBURG AIR
PUNCHED BY BULLETS
A Mexican Sought to Relieve His Ar
rested Brother by Shooting Officer.
Wickenburg. Ariz., Feb. 26. (Spe
cial.) Wickenburg had a shooting
scrape' last night in which nobody was
injured though there were two or three
narrow escapes and a lot of excite
ment. A bunch of Mexicans from the sheep
camp three or four miles west of town
spent Tuesday In celebrating in Wick
enburg. By 9 o'clock Tuesday evening
the hilarity became so boisterous -Deputy
Sheriff Woods arrested one of the
Mexicans. He was just drunk enough
to mix it with the officer and called
on a brother to assist him. The latter
was also just drunk enough to play the
game and he approached at once seek
ing to liberate his brother from the of
ficer. He was warned away but in re
sponse drew a revolver and fired at the
officer. He failed to hit him tiough
he was so close the- discharge of Uie
gun powder burned Woods' face.
The officer at this let go of his pris
oner and returned the fire of his as
sailant, several shots being exchanged.
Woods was really firing at random.
During the fusllade a shot from one of
the guns passed through a board house
and came within a foot of hitting Mrs.
A. J. Kent. Woods today arrested the
man who shot at him last night and
is now, in company with Mr. Savers, in
pursuit of the other man whom they
expect to catch tonight.

The Order for Cessation
Pescintled by President
Cheering news for Phoenix la con

Mr. Ripley today advised Mr. Drakr-i

PAUL P. HASTINGS.
When word was sent out from Chi
cago last week announcing that work
had been ordered suspended on the
Parker bridge a-s well as all construc
tion on the A. & C. railroad. President
F. M. Murphy of the S. F. P. & P.
and the allied lines, who was then in
New York at once set about securing
a countermanding of the order.
As a result of Mr. Murphy's activity,
General Manager Drake and Paul P.
Hastings, general freight agent, went
night before last to Santa Barbara,
where President Ripley of the Santa
Fe is spending the winter. There was
a hope' that something would result
from their Journev but no one dared
hope that the result would be as great
as is Indicated by the foregoing tele
gram a determination practically to
complete the line.
Such a hope would have been dis
couraged by an Associated Press dis
patch received the night of the de
parture of Messrs. Drake and Hastings,
saying that all work had been stopped
on the so-called Panhandle line of the
Santa Fe, better known in this part of
the country as "the Belen cut-off," on
which the company within the last few
years has spent many millions of dol
lars. A cessation of Nwork on that, the
greatest construction of the Santa Fe
within recent year?., would leave he
company without any return on the
tremendous investment that has been
made. It was therefore thought that
if the company had decided upon that
step, there would be little prospect of
securing a rescinding of the order re
garding the A. & C. About the lest
therefore that was expected was that
permission might be given for carrying
on the bridge work, If not to comple
tion, at any rate to a point where what

When President Itiplty wa i in l'hoe

after the presidential election, he was
of the opinion that inasmuch as so

suggestion be made seriously for the
appointing of a permanent governor of

Out to His Hearers
Washington. Feb. 26. That there is
to be no let-ui in President Roose
velt's policy, in warring "against rot
tenness and corruption," was emphat
ically declared by the president today,
in an addrcrr to t!s uelegates of the
department of superintendents' of the
National Educational association, dur
ing a reception at the White House.
Continuing, the president gave his
views on educational methods at con
siderable length and throughout with
vigor of expression.
The president spoke in part as fol
lows: "Of all bodies of citizens I have
received here, there are none who oc
cupy a more important relation than
yours. Fundamentally, this country is
sound; morally, no less than physical
ly. Fundamentally in the family life,
outside the activities of individuals, the
country is better and not worse than
it formerly was. This does not mean
that we are to be excused if we fail to
war against rottenness and corruption
and if we fail to 'contend effectively
with the forces of evil. They waste
time, who ask me to withhold my hand
from dealing therewith. You, who are
training the next generation, are train
ing this country as it is to be a decade
or two hence.
" While your work in training the in
tellect is great it is not as great as
your work in training the character.
More than anything else. I want to see
the public schools turn out boys and
girls who, when man or woman will
add t& the sum of good citizenship of
the nation. J
"I trust more and more of our people
to see to it that the schools train more
toward and not away from the farm
and workshop. The great nations of
mediaeval times who left such mar
velous works of architicture and are
behind them, were able to do so be
cause they educated alike the brain
and hand of the craftsman.
"One thing I would have you teach
your pupils is that whether you call
the money gained, salary., or wapjes.
does not make any real difference. If
by working hard by your hands you
get more than if you work with your
head only, it does not atone f'R' it to
call the smaller amount a salary. The
term 'dignity of labor" implies that
manual labor is as dignified as mental
labor, as of course, it is. Indeed the
highest kind of labor is that which
makes demands upon the qualities
both head and hand and of heart, brain
"I would not have you to preach an
impossible Weal; for if you teach an
ideal that is impossible you tend to
make your pupils believe that no ideals
are possible, therefore you tend to do
them that worst of wrongs to teach
them to divorce preaching from prac
tice; to divorce the ideal that they in
abstract admire and for the principaF
good of which they strive. Teach them
that they should earn their own live
lihood;, teach the boy to be a home
maker and the girl that she must ul
timately be a homekeeper; that work

ABOUT NAVAJO BLANKETS
It makes me laugh this thing of some curio dealers talking about
having Navajo blankets by the thousand. Why don't you know there
are hardly a thousand Navajo Indian blankets on sale in the entire
territories of Arizona and New Mexico. If there were thousands for
sale you wouldn't want one because everybody else would have them,
and people of aesthetic taste are not willing to spend their hard earned
cash to acquire simply the-every day things that every old body has.
But if it's Navajo blankets you want, I have more of them in my
store than all other dealers in Phoenix combined. If you are in doubt -about
it come and see. And 1 pr'de myself on my taste in Indian af
fairs as well as on my knowledge of what constitutes quality in a
Navajo blanket. These matters are among those that enable me to of
fer low prices on good stuff. I don't have to make up on a good
blanket my loss on a poor one. I don't buy poor ones because I do
my own buying, and no red skin can fool me.
