AN EMPIRE WITHIN ITSELF.
If joint statehood with Arizona
should come to 1 as-, it is well to
know before hand a few of the things
it would bring us. It is a magnificent
showing. The two territories joined
would stand as followa:
Population, includiug transients
aud Indians, 000,000.
Postotfices of the two territories,
Gross area of the two territories,
square miles, 'oo,000.

state, exclusive of salines, for the use
of its common schools and institu-
tious. acres, i, 1-4, 'iSO. '

oud only to Texas, aud it would be

That showing would lie worth more
to the people of the new state than all
the ambitions and bickerings 01 the
politicians ot the two territories ever
can be. The creation of the new state
would throw together new elements
politically, and would break up all
present existing political rings, and
force political parties to nominate
their best men for office: it would
brimr home rule iu everv deimrtment
of the government, and with our cou
gressional influence would force the
nomination ef home men for all na
tional offices. The people of the two
territories ought to prepare themselves
for this. They will soon have a
chan.-.e. in all probability, to say
whether they will accept it or not.

new and correct precedent in reject
ng applications for citizenship in the
following declaration: "1 will not
naturalize any one who comes before
' me and is unable to speak the English
language sufficiently to make himself
' understood. 1 will compel applicants

A telegram was received iu Phenix

with headquarters at Phenix, had

Surveyor Oeneral Price's removal
was the result of au investigation
wariest was maile puhlic today, charges
having been tiled against both Price
and Murphy, who are accused of re
ceiving illegal fees for rushing work
in the office. As to what the result
of the iuvestigatiou iu the case of
Murnby will lie is uot known, but it
is believed that a prosecutiou will fol
low. Speaking of this well known case
the Phenix (iazette says:
"It is uuderstood that charges were
tiled against Price aud Murphy by
Senator Pettigrew aud Harry Carpen
ter, who represented Senator Petti
grew's interests here. The charges
tiled were the result of exorbitant
fees beiug charged mining men who
wished to secure patents on mining
claims, ana did not care to await the
routine of the office. Inspector Axliue
found that wheu applications were
made for patents and the owner of the
mine was in a hurry, be would lie told
that it would lie two, three or perhaps
six mouths liefore tie could be accom
modated unless he wished to pay ex
tra for the work to be done over time
by the office force. The price fixed
is said to have lieeu $.'10 a claim, and
iu some instances it would cost one
man from $400 to $000 to secure his
patents within a (reasonable lengtb
of time. Objections were made by a
number of mining men, but they
could do nothing but pay aud be glad
to get their mines secure on account
of prospective sales. A unmlier of
cases were found iu Yavaai couuty.as
well as iu Cochise. Pima, Crabam,
Yuma aud other places, aud in each
instance it was discovered that exor
bitant fees bad been charged, which
the department at Washington desig
nates as illegal.
"About two mouths ago the investi
gation was set on foot and Insjiector
Axline and several others were sent to
Phenix for the purpose of making a
report w hich reached Washington sev
eral w eeks ago and the chief clerk was
mmediately suspended. At that time
it was believed that the surveyor gen
eral bad sent iu bis resignation, but
this was later denied.

hieved the and for which it has beeu
striving tbe reduction iu tbe price
of its high speed moulded cyliudri
cal wax records from fifty ceuts
each, to tweuty five ceuts. Simultau-
i.-ly with this reduction iu price a
new record, greatly siiierior to any
that has ever lieeu offered for sale is
babag furnished -a black, sujier hard
ened record, both durable and brill
iant and comhiuiiii! sweetuers aud
smoothness with remarkable volume.
These records will fit all talkiug ma
chines using cylindrical records aud
the facilities for manufacturing them
have been increased to au extent that
will enable the Columbia Phonograph
company to produce a praBtinally lim
it b supply.
While improved pfoeaaaM of inanu

bsced. from time to tune, until they
are now sold at figures that biiug
tin mi arUain lb ' reach of all. tka prist
of cvlinder rec mis bas. iu tbe mean
time, remained at fifty cents each.
For many insuperable reasons it has
never been possible until now to sell
records at the popular price that has
finally been fixed for them. But con
tinued and unceasing improvement in
Columbia facilities bas, at last,
brought the output to a point where
it is possible to cut the price iu half
while, iustead of impairing the qual
ity of the product to secure this end,
a better article is to be furnished
than ever before. This could only be
done by increasing the sales t-ithe en
ormous figures they have now reached
aud which are certain to assume be
wildering proportions, with the reduc
tiou iu the price.
The Columbia Phonograph com
pany, the pioneer and leader iu the
talking machine art, was the first to
furnish a really meritorious record for
fifty cents and while its records are
far superior to those of previous
years, the tact is adiniueu, on an
sides, that Columbia records, iu all
stages of their development, have al
ways lieeu the best that were made.
Aud (his is truer now than ever be
fore. While the superiority of Co
lumbia records would justify their
sale at a higher price than that of any
competing record, their reduced price
means that the purchaser is to have
the very best records ever manufac
tured aud to have two of (hem at the
price be formerly paid for one.
Preparations have been made with
the utmost thoroughness to meet the
emergency which a reduction iu the
price of cylindrical records to twenty
five cents each, was certain to pre
cipitate. Iu auticipatiou of au unpre
cedented demand for the new and
vastly improved records, the factory
of the Columbia Phonograph couqiany
is runuiug day and uight and every
possible arraugemeut has been made
to till all orders with reasouable
promptness, however heavy those or
ders may become.
To make better goods than its com
petitors and sell them at popular
prices has always beeu the aim of the
Columbia Phonograph compauy. De
sirous that the public should test its
claims as to the superior quality of
this new product it offers, for a limit
ed pel iod, to give a record, free, to
any user of a talking machine who
will call at any of its stores aud men

pure ami noble thought, but the
whole thing was made ridiculous by
the following gust of very decidedly
hot atmosphere thrown at that arch
demagogue aud chief of yellow journ
alism. Little Billy Hearst:

O, ye gods! Has it come to this?
That the meek and lowly Jesus, who
weut aliotlt doing good and teaching
all maukind to love one auother and
to live in peace, should be compared
to a man like Hearst, whose greatest
ambitatiou on earth seems to be to set
himself up as a great dictator and to
constantly stir up strife and turmoil
between the classes of the country
that HE might profit thereby.
It Didn't Work.
A few nights ago while inspecting
some men at the Santa Fe depot that
were to lie seut up the line to work,
Antonio Sierra, the popular inspector
for tbe local immigration department,
created quite a little amusement in
inspecting one man. The coutract
called for the shipment of married
men as the -mule men would not stay
with a job as long as the married men.
One Mexican made application aud
was turned down, as it appeared that
be was not a married man. He agreed
to prove that he was married aud pro
duced a woman who he claimed to be
his wife. Mr. Sierra had learned,
however, that the mau bad borrowed
the womau from another Mexican aud
to ciuch him told him that if the
womau was bis wife he should bug
aud kiss her, to which the applicant
for the job was willing, but the right
till husband of the woman appeared
ou the scene and called a halt. Al

Juan Valencia, who had bis prelim
inary examination before United
States Commissioner J. C. Forest yes

bound over to appear before th KJ. S.
grand jury iu the sum of H800, iu de
fault of which he weut to jail. The
crime for which he was arrested was
that of attemptingg to stop the stage

Martinez and Congress and when the
stage driver would uot oliey his com
mand to halt, he Hred his pistol at
him the bullet bitting the wagon bow
just above the driver's head, and
would probably have killed him had
he not dodged down just liefore the
shot was fired. The witnesses for the
defense, who were all Mexicans, at
tempted to prove au alibi, but they
did not have their stories very well
matched aud failed very badly to
make them agree. The evidence

likely go pretty hard with him.

The genuine is always better than
a counterfeit, but the truth of this
statement is never more forcibly real
ized or more thoroughly appreciated
than when you compare the geuuiue
DeWitt's Hazel Salve with the many
counterfeits and worthless substitutes
that are ou the market. W. S. Led
hetter, of Shreveport, La., says:
"After using uumerous ot her remedies
without benefit, one box of DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve cured me." For
bliud, bleeding, itching and protrud
