call the republicans of Yuma
county met at the court house in
Yuma on Saturday, September
29th, for the purpose of nominat
ing candidates tor uie various
county and precinct officers to
be voted for at the election in
November. A spirit of harmony
pervaded the entire proceedings
and the result was a ticket which
can be said to possess greater
elements of strength as a wThole
than any that could have been
put in the field. - The party en
thusiasm of the delegates was
very pronounced, and on the
whole there is every reason to
believe that every nominee will
be elected by a good majority.
Following are the proceedings:
The convention was called to

of the central committee. Upon

temporary chairman and George

recommended tha t thetemporary
organization be made permanent,
and that nominations be made in
in the following order: Council

their respective precincts; that
each candidate pay $5.00 to the
secretary of the convention; that
a committee of five be appointed
by the chair to present the names
of the county central committee,
to consist of fifteen members,
and also present the names of
chairman and secretary of said
committee for ratification by the
convention; that the county cen

that I have ever intentionally

have ever insisted on lowering
wages to any man who works

say that I have done evil to him,

"inPERIALISM" A BUGABOO.
BOTH IN THE FIELDI
The Congressional Fight Will be
The last hope of a compromise
between the Smith and Wilson
forces seems to have vanished
and both men are in the field as
candidates. It appears that a
conference was arranged for and
the Hon. Marcus with some of
his adherents was to meet Col.
Wilson at Phoenix and proceed
to Prescott on last Sunday, and
try to reach an agreement by
which one or the other would
withdraw, but when Smith reach
ed the eapitol Saturday he found
that his opponent had left the
city. He had also left word that
as he had no part in the break
ing of the party he would fool
away no time in the mending of
it. The Prescott conference
was therefore abandoned and all
hope that may have been in the
breasts of the democrats of Ari
zona of electing a delegate to
congress is therefore gone hence.
The race will be easy for Gov.
The Engineering and Mining
Journal says: The latest advices
from the Nome District in Alaska
are still unfavorable, and the
main point noted is that a very
large number of people want to
get away. The majority of these
cannot leave, some because they
cannot find room, in the vessels
sailing, and more because they
cannot pay for their passage.
Quite probably a lot of the latter
will be helped by the- use of a
Government transport. Mean
time there is little or no demand
for labor, and it is impossible to
earn anything. Owing to the
enormous quantity of stores
shipped to the place, prices of
supplies have gone down almost
to the level of those at Seattle;
but that is of little benefit to a
man who has no work and no
money. Many dredges, pumps
and other machines taken up to
work the placers have been prac
tically abandoned. .
The fact is that the rush to
Nome was enormously overdone,
and many times the number of
people who could possibly do
well in the district made their
way there. When the popula
tion has been sifted out, the float
ing element has gone and the
country left to a conrparatively
small number of steady and in
telligent workers, it is quite pos
sible that good returns may come
from it, for a time at least.

of the keenest and most energetic men
