FROM 'THE PRESIDENT.
There is nothing new in the
recent speeches of President Roose
velt. In his utterances on the trust
conditions and the high protective tar
iff principles he trods the sam uncer
tain path over which he traveled' last
yar in hi3 speeches and in his mes
age to the 6hort session of the Fifty
eeventh congress. He makes it plain
that he is depending for another elec
tion on tke prosperity of the country
He talks voluminously about the reg
ulations of the trusts, but makes no
specific recommendations as to how
the regulaton is to be accomplished.
He says when high tariff is caus
ing monopoly it should be Temoved,
but then at an other time declares
that the tariff is in no way responsible
for the trusts The President has
lost much of his strenuousness during
his residence in the White house; he
" has been perceptibly tamed and is
now only suggesting policies which
leave doubt as to what he would do in
relieving the country from the trust
monopoly evil. His speech upholding
the Monroe doctrine which is favored
by everybody was like the younger
Roosevelt; it had the strenuous ring of
determination in almost every word; If
his trust and tariff speeches had been
of that character, if he had taken bold
'grounds on the side of the people upon
the manifest encroachment of monop
oly, he would have been applauded
'la every state and territory, whereas
hs milk and ider honeyed words,
Intended to pacitfy the injured and
giv assurance of his distinguished
consideration, for the trusts, has made
it plain that he has timed his utter
dances o catch votes. The President
Trill undoubtedly be the nominee of
lis' party; he will practically have
to opposition, but the chances are
growing for his defeat at the pales.
Political discussion at the national
capita! at this time includes much
speculation as to what will be the re
sult of the campaign this fall in the
fetate of Iowa. Tariff revisionists who.
have recently been rebuffed by Fres'-i-'esi
Roosevelt and Secretary Root in
public utterances instead ofaccepting
the high official reproofs as a guide for
future action, on the other hand are
showing renewed activity and deter
mination to stand by their guns and
make a fight for tariff revision wheth
er it meets the approval of the admin
istration or not and they are watching
closely "for a sign from Iowa.
Governor Cummins, now coming up

It is now the opportune time for th
city Council to Take up the matter of
lighting some of our streets. It Is not
expected, that all parts ot the city can
be lighted now as they must be as we
grow in ability to afford luxuries, but
there are many places in our streets
where lights would be a blessing on
dark nights and we believe the city
should' undertake to supply them. No
doubt the electric light company
would grant reasonable terms on a
few arc lights. One or two up Tomb
stone can j on, one on O. K. street, at
the top of tie Muhelm etarway reach
ing thafstreet from Brewery Gulch
would be? highly appreciated by those
whose business requires that they go
to and from home late at night. There
are other locations where street light
ing is badly needed. The council has
wisely taken action in the matter of
providing better side walks. Let
them consider the necessity of,"light
ing Bisbee's streets at night. The
people will be found ready to pay for
all such conveniences.
CAUSE FOR THANKS.
The failure of those who proposed
sometime ago to disincorporate th
city of Bisbee to present the petition
for that purpose to the board of super
visor now in session, -is cause for
congratulation. It la evidence tha1
after mature thought and full investi
gation, those who led & this threat
ened injury to Bisbee have realized
that their succeswould mean palpable
harm to this city. Whether the pe
titions, which were signed by some of
our citizens, were stolen or quietly laid
away, makes no difference. The pie
sentation of te petitions !c 'tf lvad
of supervisors would only draw atten
tion to te willingness of those who
had signed to return to the wilder
ness and abandon the only means by
which this city can have proper :pv
emment a'id control and promote nec
essary pub!,c enterprises. Now that
the dsincovporators hae abandoned
their folly let. us all join hands in an
effort to hurry along the many bene

An exchange says, Utah has adopted
amazngly drastic legislation with re
gard to tobacco and opium. A law has
been passed providing for a fine of J5
five das' imprisonment for any one
under eighteen years of age vho even
ha3 in his or her possession a ciga
rette, a cigar or any other kind of to
bacco, or any opium. It will be Inter
esting to observe how rigotously so
sweeping a measure will be enforced.
The Mormoje, who practically con
trol in Utah are cry determined in
their opposition to the use of tobacco
in any form. In almost ee?y reli
gious service the evils of the use of
whisky and tobacco are impressed on
those present. They go further and
advise against the use of either tea or
coffee which Is claimed to be Injuri

Concerning the copper market the
last issue of the Engineering and Min
ing Journal, says:
The copper market continues strong.
"but with no further advance in prices.
Spot metal remains scarce and produc
ers supplies are very well taken up
for some time to come. Consumers
are calling urgently for deliveries,
which, in a number of cases, they will
not be able to secure. Consumption un
doubtMly continues on a large scale,
continues on a very large scale. In
In. London the jnarptthre have been
some sharp fluctuations, chiefly spec
ulative, the meaning of which is not
altogether clear. It is quite possible
that this movement is Intended for the
purpose of forcing down prices on this
side, but conditions here are such that
such a result Is hardly practicable.
We are glad to note the confession
of the Miner, our esteemed evening
contemporary, that there are benefits
which may come from a city govern
ment in Bisbee, which will recompense
for all cost of its malntainance, nc
matter how much it may be. The Re
view has labored hard to convince the
Miner that it was "out on the wrong
limb" in its opposition to our city gov
rntn'nt ard a?" c'd to note tha
our labors have not been, in vain.
Republican dissension on the tariff
i?sue will end in a party triumph for
the protectionists' and the "gagging"
of the Iowa group which has oared to
Jrge tariff reform upon. ttSTtenublicaa
organization. This increases the dem
ocratlc chance of victory in next
year's elections. Voters who recog
nize the necessity, for a revision of the
must look to the democratic party
alone for-eoch actkra.

THERE IS NO SUCH
GOOD PLAY f
CONCEDE that there may bo good actors, so far
as one can bo good whose business is dibsimulation,
but I assert that THERE IS NOT A GOOD
PLAY ON EARTH. I draw the distinction be
tween dramatic literature to bo read and the play
to bo acted. Playing at religion is debasing to actors and actresses.
Playing at marriage and divorce on the stage weakens if it
does not destroy the sanctity of marriage and keeps the divorce
courts busy. Playing at vice cannot fail, sooner or later, to make
an actor vicious, whilo playing at virtue makes virtue unreal and
open3 the way for vice. It is one of the discouraging signs of tho
times today that rcligiousplays are becoming popular. It proves
that the religious instinct in theater going people is a thing to
play with, and while faith, prayer and praise are feigned it is evi
dent that real faith, prayer and praise are lacking.
When a preacher falls into sin, it creates surprise, and he must
at once surrender his pulpit. But not so with the actor.
X t( K
THE THEATER IS THE ONLY POPULAR INSTITUTION IN
WHICH A. WOMAN MAY ADVERTISE HERSELF BY HAVING A
BLACK SPOT ON HER REPUTATION.
Good actors and actressesJtare.the..exccption. If one is known
to be moral and religious, the fact attracts attention, and when
one falls into sin neither he nor she is compelled to leave -the
stage. When tho theater going public hear of it, their morbid
curiosity prompts them to crowd the houte and increase the re
ceipts. Managers are aware of this and hence are not careful to
conceal any scandal which will call an actor or actress more prom
inently before the public.
All this goes to prove that the church, as an institution, is good,
and tho immoral Christian or preacher is the exception, while
THE THEATER, AS AN INSTITUTION, IS BAD, and the
moral actor or actress is the exception. If a preacher or church
member is bad, it is in spite of the church, which would make him
good, but if an actor is good it is in spite of the theater, which, as
an institution, tends to make him bad.
THE GENUINENESS OF LINCOLN'S FAME
By Ex-Governor FRANK S. BLACK of New York
FNCOLN'S name and his performances in the lines
which he pursued have been cut into the rock of Amer
ican history with the deepest chisel yet made use of
on this continent. But it is not by the grandeur of
his, powers that he has most appealed to me, but rather
by those softer, homelier traits that bring him down
to a closer and more affectionate view. And Lincoln was never more
imposing than when the milder attributes of his nature were exposed.
HE WAS GENUINE, HE WAS AFFECTIONATE, AND, AFTER ALL
IS SAID AND THE END lb REACHED, WHAT IS THERE WITHOUT
You may measure the heights and sound the depths; you may
gain the great rewards of power and renown ; you may quiver under
the electric current of applause the time will come when these will
fall from you like the rags that cover your body.
THE ROBES OF POWER AND THE HUSKS OF PRETENSE WILL
ALIKE BE STRIPPED AWAY, AND YOU MUST STAND AT THE
ENO AS YOU STOOD AT THE BEGINNING, REVEALED.
None had less to fear from such a test than Abraham Lincoln,
and his strength in that regard arose, it seems to me, from the pres
ervation through all his life of that fondness for his early home, of
the tender recollections of his family and their struggles, which kept
his sympathy always warm and young. HE WAS NEVER SO
GREAT BUT THAT THE TDZS OF HIS YOUTH STILL
BOUND HTM. He was never so far away but that he could itiil
bear the note of the'evening bird in the groves of his nativity.

3TERNAL good citizenship is the price of good govern
ment There yet remain and there will come in the
futnre in unending succession problems, doubts, dif
ficulties and struggles on which our safety will depend.
THERE ARE TODAY QUESTIONS THAT HOLD
WITHIN -THEM THE POSSIBILITY OF EVIL FOR
OUR COUNTRY AND DEMANDING THE HARDEST FIBER AND THE
MOST DEVOUT PATRIOTISM.
One of them is the tendency growing, I fear to-a division
between the rich and the poor, a division by which WEALTH
TENDS TO UNDUE CONTROL OVER LEGISLATION, and
poverty tries to stir up i. war of -classes based oa envy and jealousy
of the rich. The very results of our prosperity tend to increase this
evil, and every good citizen should lend himself' to the task of fcceing
to it that never shall we have a war of classes.
Another danger fraught with most serious consequences is the
tendopry to ceck Hdividnal enterprise, opportunity and develop
ment The chance that every poor boy has to rise as high as -men
can go is the very foundation of American liberty. ' Yet labor
organizations of this country are including in their rules provisions
prohibiting the better man from earning better wages than the man
who is less capable, subordinating ambition and seeking to keep all
down to the level of sloth and stupidity.
Don't think I oppose labor unions. I believe in them. The
laborer is bound to organize. HE IS ENTITLED TO OR
GANIZE, and I am glad to see him get his own. But let us set our
faces against anybody saying to any-American boy, "You shan't
do the best you can."
