DEMOCRATS WIN GLOUS
AND UNPRECEDENTED VICTORY.
After sixteen years of wandering in the political wilderness tna
democrats have been returned to power again by 'an unprecedented ma
jority, which comes from every section of the country, east, west, north
and couth, it was believed last night that Gov. Wilson has carried not
less than. forty-five states and that President Taft will not have a single
electoral vote, and It Is not' sure that hooscvelt will receive more than
,Tbe, democrats have won tills victory on the one prominent Issue of
opposition to the protective tariff policy of the republicans, which was
silently acquiesced in by Col. Roosevelt and his new party, and a prom
Iso to" destroy the cVHs which have grown up under It.
The "democrats havo not only Won the presidency, but they will havb
the .next senate by a safo majority and a largely increased majority In
the lower house of congress, so that the responsibility for governmental
conditions during the next four years wilt rest solely oa'.tho democratic
, This victory comes as a result of years of protest on the part of the
democratic party against favoritism embodied In the principle of prottc
tlon, by which one class was taxed that another class might revel in
bo formed to control prices of
wealth and luxury, that trusts might
every, necessity of the home, farm and ranch, that competition might Ke
strangled' and that the wealth Of the country might be controlled by a
few men. Had the' democrats remained steadfast in its fight for tarifi
reform in 1896 Instead 'of turning aside to exploit new Ideas of govern
ment they would hot have remained In the minority so long.
' .AVhile there will be Joy In every democratic tent today, there zhould
be a sober realization of the responsibility which has been placed on the
democratic party. Gov. "Wilson, who will take the presidential chair
next March, is well equipped for the great ofilce and his unprecedented
majority shows that he has tho complete confidence of the American
people, not of one clars or section of the country, but of the entire coun
try and of ovcry class. '
What was promised in the Baltimore platform should be the demo
cratic log book from now until everywpollcy contained In that declara
tion is included In the governmental program. The tariff legislation
should be the first ncmber on the program, but there should bc.no hasty
or unconsidered action. The plan of the present democratic majority in
the house to handle Individual and important schedules by separate bills
is admirable and if followed- up will bring good resuts in duo time and
without harm to any honest business. ',
The Review congratulates the democrats of Arizona and- Cochise
county on their splendid victory 'In tho first presidential election ever par
ticipated In by the new btnte.
The victory Is a glorious one and may it be terned io tho benefit of
the American nation and its people. (
When It was decided by the Na
tional Irrigation Congress at its ses
sion ths year to hold the next an
nual session at Phoenix there were
expressions of gratification through
out the state. Soon afterwards when j
the citizens of Phoenix began to
reckon the cost of entertaining this
congress it was thought a bigger un
dertaking than the capital city
could handle and It was Intimated
that the Irrigation congress would be
allowed to go elsewhere.
Last week, however, during the
fair when there were many Arlzon
ans present from every section of
the' state a conference was held and
It was decided to go ahead with the
preparations for the congress and ask
the various cities of the state tv
chip In and help bear the expense
At a conference of the county su
pervisors held In Phoenix last week
tlie question of the desirability to
have the irrigation congress held in
Arizona was favorably considered and
among the supervisors the sentiment
prevailed that the people of the
state, generally, would be willing to
giye assistance In meeting the cost
rather than to have the idea of Its

a'mcoting of the Irrigation congress
In Arizona would bo of great value
to the state. It wocld bring within
our -borders hundreds of men who
have studied the. problem of reclaim

tes work to be done In the future.
Visitors to the congress would be
come acquainted with irrigation pos
sibilities in the new state and this
would result in their wide dissemina
tion throughout the country and
Arizona would be the gainer ,thereby.
It is hoped that the matter of ex

allowed to lose to the state the bene

THE TROUBLES OF
A WOMAN MAYOR.
What great calamity will befall us
when tho fair 'sex Is given the elec
tive franchise, and women become
officeholders? Tls a grave question,
anw we oft bow our heads (a silence
in an attempt to barrlsh the thought.
As we look Into the mirror of that
coming age, we cannot fail to see,
in our mind's eye, a most deplorable
picture, resulting from woman being
placed on the ruler's throne, and the
downfall of more men. For a con
crete example, let us contrast that
mental picture with a pinch of real
ity. In Kansas there is a small city
known as Hunnewcll, containing about
200 Inhabitants. Some time ago they
held an election, and a woman, Mrs.
Ella 'W ilsou, became mayor. The coun
cil was made up ofmen. They took
their Office, and the flight wAs'on. The
mayor desired a woman for city clerk.
The conncil preferred a man, who
had sufficient knowledge and experi
ence to draw an ordinanceThe may
or next Insisted that the city needed
a marshal at -a salary of J30'a month.

had had no marshal for several years, revolution was a purely local lesion
upon Mexico which showed no signs
of becoming a general eruption. It
yielded at once to treatment-that was
not especially heroic and the general
was left .fn a rather ti3lcfous, al
though decidedly tragical, position.
Revolutions are grave In any event,
and gentlemen with a penchant for
leadership who start them up do so
at their personal risk and with a full
knowledge of tho conventional conse
quences of failure. General Diaz ls
perhaps less well thought of, and less
sympathized with, than the average
and, being an ordinary country village
in which a deputy sheriff resided, that
a salaried marshal was unnecessary
and would cause needless expense.
The mayor next got an idea that the
city should levy a tax. Tbe council
protested and urged that the city had
so Indebtedness and had sufficient
money In. the treasury to obviate the
necessity of 'a tax levy. The
mayor believed It was the duty of the
council to confirm any appointment
she made and that It was their duty
to give reasons for failure to confirm.
The members of the council disliked
the Idea of -serving withav woman I revolutionist, because he struck bc-
mayor, and wero set In their notion
that they would not. submit to dicta
tion by her. By reason of local gossftp
a council meeting soon camo to be
regarded as a great attraction and
amusement, and even people from tbe
country would come in to attend,
tho result being an unseemly and dis

of tbe assembled crowd. Tho result
of this disorder and turmoil Is re
corded In 124 Pacific Reporter, 364,

action to reraovo from office three
of the councilmen. The major as
serted tho above incidents, and, fur
ther, that the council had sought to
further insult her by choosing a hotel
bedroom for a place or meeting, and
upon all this was based the prayer
for ouster. The supremo court ofi
Kansas, without deciding whether tho
councilmen have been guilty of will

was engaged with other enemies.
President Madero's refusal to inter

enough. If the supreme court order
should save the general's neck his
good fortune would be nnquesaion

and elsewhere would regard it as un

DEMOCRATS AT HELM.
The fact that the Arizona Daily
Democrat has been purchased from
the Pacific Gas company by such ster

os are Geo. Olney, W. T. Webb, Ed A.

the state. With these men at the

Democrat will be steered along
straight democratic lines and will al

tho people's rights and interests.
