If the editor makes a mistake he has
to apologize for it, but if the doctor
makes one he buries it. If we make
one there is lawsuit, swearing and a
smell of sulphur, but if tne doctor
makes one there is a funeral, cut
flowers and a smell of varnish. The
doctors can use a word a yard long
without knowing what it means but if
the editor uses it he has to spell it.
If the doctor goes to see another
man's wife, he charges for the visit,
but if the editor goes to see another
man's wife, he gets a charge of buck
shot. Any medical college can make
a doctor. You can't make an editor.
He has to lie born. When a doctor
gets drunk its a case of "overcome by
heat." and if he diets, It is heart
trouble. When an editor gets drunk
it's a case of too much booze, and if
he dies it's a case of delirium trem
In an article published in the Na
tional Tribune of March 10. Captain
Henry A. Castle, auditor for the ost
oflice department, gives some very in
teresting statistics concerning this
branch of the government from which
the following is taken:
The session of congress which closed
March 4 passed, two days before ad
journment, the bill which appropriates
funds for the postal system for the
fiscal year which begins July 1. MB.
The total sum of these appropriations
is llwt.lll.WI U. as against f 139. -410,589.75
for the current year.
This is an increase of almost exact
ly U5,0U0.000 in ,a single year. The
postal appropriation has now passed
above that for pensions in amount,
and almost equals those for the army
and navy combined.
In addition to the post office clerks
and letter carriers of all classes, there
are the 70.000 post masters provided
for. The total "compensation to post
masters" is fixed at $21,750,000. As
this compensation is established by
law. based on the postal business,
which is constantly increasing, there
is an annual deficit in this item,
sometime, reaching over a million
More than 20.000 postmasters receive
annual compensations of less than ?50
each another 20.000 each receive be
tween $50 and 8100. It might be in
ferred that the settlement of these
official accounts would be easy. Hut
the fact is that they cause more
trouble in the auditor's office than
those of the lBiger offices.
The aggregate appropriations for
clerk hire in post offices for tb year
is tSU.813,900, an increase of $2,074.
900. This increase will permit an ad
ditional force at many officers where
badly needed, and will also permit the
department to grant well earned pro
motions to thousands of these over
worked employees. The process of
classification and adjustment which
General Superintendent Beavers, in
charge of this branch has been skill
fully carrying on for four years, will
thus be measurably completed. And
there was need. When he took hold
of the matter chaos reigned. Ha two
offices were alik: seldom did two
clerks workiug side by side, equally
efficient, receive the same pay. Kacli
city office had grown up from a vil
lage office on a system, or lack of sys
tem, all its own: throwing out roots
and branches as fancy dictated; desig
natiug departments and the heads
thereof, and involving the whole or
ganization in such a maze of contra
dictory functions as brought dist na
tion to the superheated mental equip
ment of any dertmeut official who
sought to compass a comprehension of
it. He who hasreduced this chaos to
something like harmony and oidained

For stationery, twine, wrapping pe

ber stamps, lacking boxes and other
articles for the "Supply Division," a
total sum of fi)2.00O is appropriated.
An aggregate of $15:1.000 is allotted
for blanks, books, rubber and metal
stamps, copying prcs. etc.. for the

The following are items to cover ex
peuse of manufacture of stamps, etc. :
"For manufacture of adhesive stamps.
$:r70.000: stamped envelopes and news
paper wrapper.-. $75:J.0U: postaljcards.
For blanks, books, etc., relating to
the registry system. $20. 000 is allowed.
One of the most wholesome measures
passed by the legislature was the bill
prohibiting the establishment of tent
saloons near grading camps of rail
roads, etc. These tent saloons are
notoriously corrupt and heretofore
have been the rendezvous of vicious
Mexicans and low classes, and the
eople should lie pleased with a law
that puts an end to them. This bill
was especially espoused by L. C.
Herr of Pinal county and the people
1 nve its enactment into a law to him
alone. The hill was killed by the
council at one time, but Mr. Herr by
very prompt and vigorous action got
the council to reconsider the vote and
iass it to a law. Mr. Herr has proved
himself a very safe legislator, and his
constituents should heartily endorse
his entire course during the session.
While the Chinese exclusion act
works inconveniences to the Chinese
at times, it is not an unmixed evil to
all. For instance the Chinaman liv
ing down in Mexico who has made hi.-
little stake and wants to return to bis
native land, in order to save steamer
fare just steps across the line, is gob
bled up by an inspector, taken lefore
the proper tribunal, is ordered de
ported, and is taken in charge by the
United States marshal, taken to San
Francisco, and a ticket purchased to
China for him. all at the expense of
the government. This is an oppor
tunity which the exclusion affords
which is appreciated by the Chinamen
who are in a position to take advan
tage of it.
HOFSK CLEANING TIME
Wgjl By S. M. Wright.
One lovely balmy morning
'Twas in the mouth of May; "
Wneu April showers had brought
That look so bright and gay.
I left the house quite early
"And nothing was awry.
But. when I came at dinner time
The whole coucern was "pi."
Now where's the men that loveth
A day and hour like that?
Tor everyhiug was upside down
And wife in chaos sat.
Come, don't lie scared but listen.
And sympathize with me
Kor Kate was cross aud cleaning
'Twas awful ! don't you see?
The yard was strewn with liedsteads
Aud trunks and oh. alas!
Five hundred other household things
Were scattered o'er the grass.
I get up ev'ry morning
And make a Hre for Kate
And many other little things
She says 1 do Hrst rate.
1 even wipe the dishes
When no oue else is there.
But when it conies to cleaning house
1 have no time to spare.
I've marched up to the cannon
An empty oue 1 mean
But when there's signs of cleaning
I'm nowhere to lie seen.
I love the roar of cannon
In times of lovely peace
But when they fight with mops and
My horrors never cease.
Some women love house-cleaning (?)
nut all men do escnew it :
Aud if the women love the work.
Why not just let them do it ?
But Kate's a little darling!
She seems to understand
That when she wants to scour the
She has to furnish saud.

Citizens Have Battle With Rob

Cleveland, Ohio, March 28. A dee
perate battle was fought early today
lietweeu three robbers, on one aide
and officers and citizeus on the other
at Bedford, a suburb, resulting in the
death of one roblier and the wounding
aud capture of another. The fight
was the result of an attempt by three
masked men to blow the Hafe at the
post office in Garretsville, east of
here. Failing in this they robbed the
store of a small amount of money and
men escaped, ine authorities were
notified aud a posse of citizens aud a
number of deputies met the trio as
they got off the train at Bedford and
a running fight commenced which
lasted for several minutes, resulting

some of these days. The
court at its recent session confirmed
the decision of the lower court in the
matter of Simon Alderete, the Mexi
can who killed a painter by the name
of Ward in a saloon on Goodwin strees
about a year ago. Alderete was tried
before Judge Sloan last spring and
found guilty of murder in the first
degree aud sentenced to be hanged.
The case was appealed to the supreme
court, and as stated, that body hat
sustained the decision of the lower
court. The decision was handed down
March 20. and the defendant has fif
teen days in which to ask the supreme
court for a rehearing. If at the end
of that time a rehearing has not been
asked for the prisoner will be brought
before Judge Sloan and resentenced.
It is not reasonable to expect that
the judge will change his sentence, so
the only thing that will save his neck
will be a commutation of sentence by

LAKE DE BILLINGHURST.
Prof. Billinghurst is usually a very
modest and unassuming man, but for
a couple of days he has been putting
on a good deal of style and the Journal-Miner
has just found out the rea
son for all these high toned feelings.
The professor has a lake in his yard
aud is contemplating putting on a line
of pleasure lioats for picuic parties
this season. However, all this is not
of the professor's choice, for really
he would just about as leave not have
a lake as to have one. But, like many
other men he has had fortune (?)
thrust u nn him. A few days ago W.
C. Bashford. who owns some lots ad
joining the place where Prof. Billing
hurst lives,decided to fill up the draw
which runs through the professor's
yard and also across the property be
longing to Mr. Bashford. The latter
lots were leveled up which formed a
dam for the water which runs down
this draw. When the recent rains be
gan to fall the water soon liegau to
liack up in the professor's yard and
finally got deep enough to flow into the
cellar but the rain kept right on
falling, aud the water kept on run
ning into the cellar and now be has
greater sympathy for the jieople living
along the Mississippi river. Mrs.
Billinghurst bad a hen setting on

among the audience.
After an overture by the Prescott
orchestra. Captain L. D. Philips com
mander of Barrett Post, made a few
appropriate and eloquent remarks and
was followed by Mrs. Mary Bowen, of
the W. R. C. Mrs. Edith Norton re
cited "The Old Sergeant," after
which another selection was rendered
by the Prescott orchestra.
"A Night With the Picket Reserve"
constituted the second part of the
programme. This was an original
sketch written by W. G. Barney for
this occasion and it gave a very vivid
representation of a camp scene in
army life. When the, curtain was
raised a squad of soldiers marched on
the stage and made camp. Those rep
resenting the soldiers were W. G.
Barney, sergeant, J. W. Conger, D.
H. Budlong, A. H. Swenerton, C. F.
Plummer, E. H. Conger, Herbert Mc
Lean and W. F. Buckingham.
The camp was a realistic one with
the guns stacked and the soldiers'
meal being cooked over the camp fire.
The play consisted of conversation
such as would be natural around a
camp flre interspersed with songs and
other specialties. Mrs. C. F. Plum
mer, in the costume of a Red Cross
nurse, visited the camp and sang the
Suwanee river accompanied by a tab
leau. D. H. Bndlong, brother of Mrs.
Captain Philips, sang "In the Good
Old Summer Time," accompanied by
eight male voices in the chorus. Mr.
Budlong has a very rich, strong and
veil J cultivated tenor voice and re
ceived an encore.
"Tenting Tonight," by A. H.
Swenerton, and a chorus was another
beautifully rendered selection.
'Marching Through Georgia," was
sung by a chorus.
"Theology in the Quarters" was a
recitation by Miss Clara Logan.
W. G. Barney sang the humorous
song, "Tommy Atkins," very beauti
fully and elicited great applause from
Miss Clara Logan, dressed in the garb
of a little negro girl visited the camp.
and the boys demanded a cake walk,
which was given, with E. H. Conger,
son of J. W. Conger, as her partner,
and it was a very graceful dance.
C. F. Plummer rendered some com
ic songs, which were applauded en
M. Tregallis, a favorite with Pres
cott audiences, rendered some negro
melodies, accompanying himself on
the banjo. He is always good in any
thing he undertakes, aud was up to
the usual standard last evening.
Messrs. Swenerton and Budlong
were each down for two numbers, the
former's second number being a "Sol
dier's Farewell." with tableau and
the Iatter's "I'm Goin' to Live Any
how Till I Die."
"Soldiers' Dreams, "were a series of
tableau arranged by Miss Kautz. ac
compauied with music and recitation
and were as follows:
'Do They Think of Me at Home,
sang by Mrs. Dan Gillis.
'The Girl I Left Behind Me," by
the Prescott orchestra.

While members of the G. A. R. and
W. R. C. all contributed iu making
the entertainment a success, much
credit is due to Post Commander
Captain L. D. Philips, who officiated
as chief executive and under whose
directions largely the entertainment
was arranged. Members of the post
and corps appreciated his valuable
services in the matter, and just as the
audience was about to retire, one of
them appeared on the stage and pro
posed three cheers for him which were
given with a hearty good will.
