NEWSPAPERS IN THE
The purchase .of .the Arizona Re
publican by Dwfght 'B.1 Heard, head
of the Bull Moose organization in
Arizona, is the second paper taken
over by the Progressives in the state
during the last few days. Last week
the Tucson Post, a weekly paper In
Tucson, changed ownership and thai
paper is now giving enthusiastic sup
port to Colonel Roosevelt and the'
new party. This gives the new party
a substantial representation, so far
as Arizona newspapers are concerned.
Four papers are now supporting the
Bull Moose organization, the Repub
lican at Phcunir, the Dispatch at
Douglas, the 1'ost at Tucson and the
Examiner at Yuma. We doubt if the
lately acquired newspapers will be a
profitable investment if the objfet of
their purchase was to stampede the
"Arizona political sentiment to Roose
velt As a matter of fact the voters
are not looking to newspapers to tell
them how to vote as much as they
formerly were and especially has the
party organs lost much of their for
mer Influence. Political sentiment to
day, so far as the newspapers ara con
cerned, la being molded more and
more by the independent press and
the magazine writers in the country.
Leave It to the Arizona newspapers
to boost their own localities. It pays
to resume the advantages and oppor
tunities to be found in Arizona often
and the press of Arizona is ever loyal
in tho performance of this duty as
for instance the following taken from
the Clifton Copper Era of last weeU:
"Few realize the vast amount that
the mining camp's of Clifton and Mo-
rencl have added to the material pros-
pcrity of Arizona. As the oldest cop-jer

years and yeara; Tho old prospector

Years before. .Jerome was thought of

While tho new Stato of Arizona has
many varied Industries, tho mining
pursuit outstrips them all. The cow.
man haa followed his herds over the
valleys and mountains for many years
and played an; active part in the up
building of thoWcst? tho agricultural
employment has, made many advances
in tho development of the land of
sunshine and has resulted In thou
sands of happy homes over the length
and breadth of the State of Arizona.
And looking back over tho fleeting
yearsw.hich.have marked the history
of Clifton, the old resident looks with

community! He, seas, o'n tho banks

of prosperity. 'No town, city or hamlet
within the confines of Arizona, is en

William WhKlng .Borden, an Aineri
can youth who Is heir to $5,000,000,
is to become a missionary to China.
A majority of persons who read the
announcement will he surprised. It is
the popular impression that China
gets, as missionaries from America,
runS ien and women who lack oth-
opportunities, and thai" to become
a missionary to China Is to agree to
ho buried In aaheathen and "unciv
ilized" country. -
As a matter of fact missionary work
in China lacks a good deal of being

matists, representatives of European
and American business houses, jour
nalists engaged in making the ever
Increasing number of newspapers
printed in English and other West
ern languages In China, foregather in
the seaport cities and onjoy social
life that is much broader than that of

the 'smart set in any American .city.

posts in the Interior as a majority of
tbem are a srea' deM of the time, of.j

There is much to tempt, and nothing
to hinder, the observer who has an
ncllnatlon for authorship.
China gets a great many high-class
.Americans as missionaries and medic
al missionaries, and they have un
questionably played an imiwrtant
part in the awakening of China from
the sleep of centuries. Thoeo who
have been sojourners in the "Middle
Kingdom" during the last dozen years
havo had the experience of witness
ing one of tho most remarkable ex
amples of social evolution that have
been recorded in history. During the
short timethit has elapsed since the
Boxer rebellion jio country in" the
world has made such advances as
China has made. An absolute mon

goes to China nowadays goes around

in for society in American lsrllkcly
to content himself with .Iarls and
Now York, adding a superficial ac
quaintance with London and at few
of the Continental capitals. He is, like

A3 the national election Is now less
han a month In the .future it is well
to again take a look at the democrat
ic platform. This platform contains
promises and guarantees which if sus
tained by the people will lead them
back to the times when this country
was not in the control of those- who
contribute moat to campaign
funds. The election of the democratic
candidate for president now seems
certain and this condition may be
laid to a return of confidence in tho
democratic party and In the great
fundamental principle of that party
which kept our government honest
and clean for the greater time of its
existence. The. confidence of the peo
ple In the democratic party this year
is well p'aced.

the more Important pianks In tho

There will be a jojftt meeting held
tonight in this city composed of mem
bers of both the Warren District
Commercial club an1 the Business
Men's Protective association of this
city. The object of tho meeting is
for a further consideration of thft
proposition for securing for this city
commission form of government. This
paper belicvs that the commission
form of government for municipalities
has been the means of providing bet
ter conditions at less expense than
under the old form. It is a sttp in
the direction of bringing business
methods Into action in place of meth
ods that too often depend upon po
litical favoritism. The Review hopes
that the business men of Bisbto will
all turn out to the meeting called

A POLITICAL ORPHAN.
J. C. Adams told the Republican
state central committee and the Re
publican party council in Phoenix that
if they adopted the woman suffrage
plank be would leave the republican
party never to return. When this was
learned by the democrats, who were
In session at tbe seme time. Senator
Hughes made a motion that Adams be
refused admission to the democratic
party. It was carried. The only place
Mr. Adams can now go Is to the Bull

YUMA DATES TO EUROPE
Yuma grown dates are now being
shipped to New York and Europe, and
the demand for them is on the in
creaB. says W. F. Wattberton, mana
ger of the Yuma Heights fralt ranch.
The main shipments, are also made
to Los Angeles. The lowest price re
ceived is CO cents per pound ; 66 cents
being the highest
Mr. Wauberton has now fully solved
tho problem of packing and shipping,
and the dates arrive In Frisco in the
best of condition. Mr. Wauberton has
had made fer packing, soaie lovely
boxes in which he racks one pound
of dates. He says that all it requires
is a little skill In the selection of
the fruit and knowing when K is just
ready to be picked and packed, it
seems heretofore dates have not been
successfully shipmd from Yuma or J
from any other part of the desert
southwest, because they have not been
properly bandied. It remained for
Mr. Wauberton, who Is a skilled man
In that line, to work out the problem
so thai the dates osuld b put on the
market in the beet condition and in
the most attractive manner.
Mr. Wauberton tciie-vea that there
is a great future in Yuma for date cal
ture. Three or- four acres of ground
Slanted to dates w.U make the or
chardist rich. The mr,rket for (the
dates grown here is very larg- and
thero will bo no chance of overstock
ing It. At the prevailing price for
dates tho value of a single crop on an
acre of ground runs Into large flgur: s.
Date culture is doatined to be one of
the big money makers for Yuma
BAD FORM OF RECALL
We believe the democratic party
council at Phoenix this week made a
mistake when, by a bare majority of
two. the council voted to endorse the
present recall provision -of the Consti
tution and recommend its application
la the jodicJary. A large number of
democrats of Arieona, who are in
favor of the principle of the Recall,
are, violently opposed to the provision
as worded In pur Constitution, for
the reason that the officer against
whom the Recall is directed is com
ptlled at the same time to make an
other raec against a new candidate,
or several candidates. By the terms
of the RcaM In or Constitution the
officer is not only called upon to de-
fftnd himself against ceares or any
description hut make another cam-
raign at the same time. Onr present
fdrm of Recall is opposed because it
to unfair. Again, on this aubjet, the
Arizona democratic platform out
of tune with the demoeratle national
platform In this particular. The stand
ard bearers of the democratic party
Wilson anl Marshall are both op
posed to the application of the recall
lo the Judiciary. Both Wttsen aBd
Marshall are 'rue dmocratic pro
gressives but they believe in the in
dependence of our courte to the end
that all men may be aceordKl equal
rights and Justice at the hands of a
tribunal free from any unduo influ
ence of any kind.
