KEYNOTE OF CAMPAIGN.
SOME COUNTY CONTRACTS.
The board of supervisors awarded a
number of the yearly contracts yester
The effect of awarding contracts last
year to the highest bidder was notice
able in the bids this year, as in three
or four instances only one bid was
presented for particular contracts.
This was particularly noticeable in
the bids for the burial of the dead.
The board in its superior wisdom last
year rejected a bid of S3. 90 on the
ground that the service was worth
more, and accepted a bid for SS per
body. The result this year was that
there was only one bid presented and
this at S"20 per body.
The hospital contract was also let
last year to a high bidder, and this
year only one bid was presented for
that, as well as for the board of pris
oners. As to the matter of the county
printing the Journal-Miner was the
lowest bidder by a little over $100, but
the board by close scrutiny of its
bids discovered a technical error in
which they felt justified in rejecting
the bid and letting the contract to the
next lowest bidder. The rejection was
solely on a technical point. The bids
called for a certified check to accom
pany all bids. The Journal-Miner en
closed its bids for county printing
and for printing the great register in
one envelope accompanying it with
the certified check as required. Tho
board ruled two certified checks of
$250 each were necessary in spite of
the fact that the bidder has been en
gaged in business here for over twenty
one years, has had numerous contracts
from the county, city and territory
and has never yet defaulted.
There is a territorial law, if the
Journal-Miner mistakes not, which
prohibits an officer of the county from
being interested in any contract. As
.the chairman of the board is very
much interested in the paper to which
the contract was awarded, holding a
mortgage of a few thousand dollars on
it, he might have found technical rea
sons for not making the award there
either. Or did that fact have an in
fluence in making the award? The
people who pay the bills may answer
Hon. Theodore Roosevelt is the first
man in the history of the country
who has occupied J the presidential
chair who has really understood the
conditions and need of the great
western country and who has been
fully and thoroughly in sympathy
with it. Without his active aid and
co-operation the buildincof the Tonto
Basin reservoir, which is now practi
cally an assured fact would neve have
been undertaken. Are the republi
cans of Arizona willing to manifest an
ungrateful spirit towards him, by
sending a delegation to tho national
convention, uninstructed or unpledged
to his support tor Jthe presidential
nomination? The Journal-Miner does r
not believe that such action would be
pleasing to him, neither does it be
lieve that the temper of the masses of
the voters in the party is favorable to
such action. Republicans may differ
as to their choice of the men whom
they desire to represent them, but on
this one particular point it certainly
6eems that there is no tangible reason
for disagreement. When the Tucson
convention meets, there are two ob
vious and plain duties for it to per
form. One is to pass a whole-souled
and hearty endorsement to Governor
Brodie's administration and the other
is to give an equally enthusiastic en
dorsement of the administration of
President Roosevelt, and pledge the
Arizona delegation to the Chicago
convention to bis support.
Tho Phenix Gazette recently pub
lished an interview with Governor
Brodie, in which he sounds the key
note of tho campaign for delegates to
the natioual ropublicau convention in
a very lorciulo aud logical man nor
aud in language of which there cau be
110 doubt. It is as follows:
"As to the position Arizona should
take in rogard to the coming republi
can national convention, tlioro can be
00 honest misunderstanding, for, to
my mind, no portion of the west, with
tho possible exception of California,
is so strongly for President Roosevelt
as is Arizona.
"To stand by a friend is a trait
which Arizona claims to poss-ess and
that it is capable of doing so, will be
amply shown in the Tucsou conven
tion when that body endorses Presi
dent Roosevelt aud sends a delegation
to Chicago pledged to support him
throughout the courention. All this
talk we hear about an auti-Roosovelt
sentiment in Arizona is without foun
dation, and, if it exists in the slight
est degree, it is confined to a few pol
iticians who have lost positions in the
federal service since Colonel Roosevelt
became president. The people are for
Roosevolt throughout the territory;
the stockmen, because he has prove ti
himself their friend; the miners, be
cause ho has brought about tho settle
ment of some of the greatest strikes
this country has ever known, and the
advanced the condition of the miner
and all who toil in the mines of this
country; the agriculturist and
rauchers because he has given to "Ari
zona one ot tue nrst great projects
which aims to supply water for the
farms aud which will make Arizona
richor by thousands of people and
millions of dollars. If the country
had not recoived his sympathy and
assistance at an hour when it was most
needed, the Tonto dam might have
been-delayed a great many years, and
perhaps never been built.
"I beliove that we should be out
spoken in our support of a man who
has done much for us. Why should
there be objection to an instructed
delegation if men are sincerely back
ing Colonel Roosevelt? There was a
silly argument put forth some days
ago in one of the papers that the del
egation from this territory -would re
ceive more consideration were it to go
"What consideration' do tney ex
pect? Do they expect a place on any
of the important committees? If they
do. thev will have no chance at all
in that respect by going uninstructed
but if thev go instructed, and the
convention knows where to find them,
they stand a better chance of some
recognition, although a territory sel
dom comes in for much in that lino.
"The fact is, President Roosevelt
will bo nominated before Arizona is
reached in tho call of states and ter
ritories, and if the republicans of this
territory fail to express their choice
at the Tucson convention they will
have lost the only opportunity to take
a stand which will showthe president
how they feel towards him. They shall
have lost the only vote they will have.
Let it be known that Arizona stands
pledged for President Roosevelt and
we will at least have shown him that
we appreciate his many endeavors in
our behalf and we will have tho furth
er 'satisfaction of having done the
right thing at the right time.
-"I admit I have a personal interest
in the success of Colonel Roosevelt
for the reason that I am his friend
but aside from that, there is a still
deeper interest in him, because he has
shown hjmself to be a friend of Ari
zona. I have no desire beyond doing
what is best in my judgment for the
territory of Arizona and its people,
and 1 firmly believe that a failure to
endorse Colonel Roosevelt by pledg.
ing the Arizona delegation for him
would be a shameful disregard of fa
vors bestowed, and would bring about
great injury to our territory Sin tho
desires and aims which are uppermost
in the thoughts uf its people.
"However, J. have never doubted for
a single instant the possibility of Ari
zona's failure in this lespect."

Tha wonderful metal, recently found
in certain ore?, and known as radium,
continues to excite immense interest
among scientists. Sir William Ramsey
of England has ascertained that radium
gives off a gas which slowly changes
into helium, a hypothetical substance
known only to ttie spectroscope. It
is thought the changing of radium
into helium makes possible the trans
mutation of metals. Thus former
theories fn relation to chemistry may
be Nrevolutioulzed. At present the
only practical use to which radium is
put is as a remedy for cancer, it being
claimed that its rays destroy the can

The people on this earth are susceptible to some
laws which govern plant life. A plant cannot be
successfully grown m the dark. A man is seldom
healthy and strong who lives in the dark or in sun
less rooms. After all, Nature's ways are found to
be the best. A man who lives close to nature in
God's free air, in the woods or fields, is usually a
healthier man than the one confined in factory or
workshop. Nature's remedies are always best for
eradicating disease, and by this we mean a medicine
made of plants aud herbs. The American Indians
have known for centuries of certain roots and herbs
that were useful in curing disease.
Get as near to Nature's way as you can. There's
a reason. Vegetable foods are the best for the body
in health. The human economy digests and assimi
lates them best. In disease, remedies made entirely
of botanical plants and roots are best and safest for
the system. They are assimilated in the stomach
and taken up by the blood and are, therefore, the
most potent means which can be employed for the
regaining of lost health. Dr. R. V. Pierce, con
sulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y., in many years of ex
tensive practice, found that he could pin his faith
to an alterative extract of certain plants and roots
for the cure of all blood diseases. This he called
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. Containing
no alcohol nor narcotics, entirely vegetable, this
"Discovery" makes rich red blood and is a power
ful tissue-builder, gives the tired business man or
woman renewed strength and health. Rapidly
growing school-girls and boys often show impover
ished blood by the pimples or boils which appear on
face or neck. To eradicate the poisons from the
blood, and feed the heart, lungs and stomach on
-pure Dlood, nothing is so good as Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. Nothing spoils the red
corpuscles of the blood and causes such paleness of
the face as malaria, this is also true of the grip. If
you "put your house in order" by making the blood
pure you will not be subject to such troubles. This
"Medical Discovery" of Dr. Pierce is just the
thing for those who are recovering from attacks of
the grip, malaria, or typhoid. It is a reconstructive
tonic whose effect is to increase the blood cells rap
idly increasing the red blood corpuscles, bringing
back color to the face restoring appetite and
strength. In the case of aged men and women it
is a tonic which prolongs life and vitality.

"Some time has elapsed since I have written you in regard
to the treatment I have been taking under your instructions,"
says Mr. E. F. Cingmars, of 533 Penn Avenue, Minneapolis,
Minn. "When first I commenced taking your remedies
I had been for four months under treatment of a well
known specialist in this city for catarrh and stomach
trouble, rapidly getting worse. Got so bad that I could not
eat anything that did not distress me terribly and I was
obliged to quit taking the doctor's treatment entirely. I was
greatly reduced in flesh. As a last resort I wrote to yon and
stated my case, and after receiving your instructions I fol
lowed them closely. After taking five bottles of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery and one vial of his ' Pleasant Pel

medicines and observe your instructions regarding hygienic
treatment. 11 is now nearly six montus since I commenced
your treatment and I can say that I am well and never felt

Arrangements were made last week
to have the celebrated impersonator,
Wm. Leo Greenleaf, Thursday evening,
Feb. 11th, the Fraternal Ordor of
Eagles having taken tho initiative. A
miscellaneous programme has been ar
ranged, giving impersonations and a
great variety of selections from Carlo-
ton, Reilly, Nye, Hussey, Holmes.
Poo and others.
In nddition to his original sketches
ho will present as a monologue, one
of the most favored of tho well known
plays, "Rip Van .Winkle," also the
interlude to "A Mid Summer Night's
In thus presenting a play he uses no
costumes, wigs, or other accessories,
but distinguishes tho characters by
imitating their facial expressions and
manners of acting and speaking.
Knowing what linos in tho face indi
cato certain types of character, and
being able to make tbeso lines in his
face and to imitate a great variety of
voices, he 'is ablo to give others his
conceptions of the characters, and it
is his fine conception and ability to
portray that rank him so high as an
PLATS AS MONOLOGUES.
Hint it is possible for ono person
without the use ot scenery, "stage
property," costumes or "makeups,
so to present a play that it will be as
intensely interesting and as well uu
derstood as if presented by a company
of players who use all these artifices,
is a fact that may bo easily doubted
by ono who has never seen it demon
strafed, and who does not consider
carefully why it is so. But when we
remember that it is the characters and
ovents 01 tho play, not the scenery
around them, in which we are inter
ested ; and that it is tho actor's art
not the costume he wears,wbicb makes
us understand them, we can the
more readily believe that this is true.
Tho monologno artist must build
his scenery in the imagination of bis
auditors and distinguish his charac
ters by imitating their expressions.
He must not only, bo familiar with
their features in order to resemble
them, but must understand their pas
sions and their thoughts in order to
express them in a natural manner. He
must be able to put himself in the
place of each of tbo characters and
change rapidly from one to the other,
and II no can do these tning3 he can
so interpret a play that it will meet
its highest object, which is to por
tray human nature in such a way that
it will bo understood and to Impress
the lesson to bo learned from the lives

were so alarming that tho officials pre
fer tho jail to liberty. Soon after be-
ng arrested John Dossart, president
of tho bank, secured bond for the offi
cials. Ho had not been at liberty
long, however, boforo he voluntarily

President F. M. Murphy and Super
intendent Drake, of the Santa Fe lines
in Arizona, are out on a tour through
tbo country that will be tapped by tho
Phenix & Eastern, and it is rumored
that they are looking over some pro
posed changes in the route. For some
time there have been rumors that the
road wonld not go to Benson as the
first surveys would be made. Re
cently an order was given changing
the grade, and from the direction this
change will take the line, tho now
road will apparently not go near Ben
After crossing tbo Gila for tho first
time at the Buttes, fifteen miles above
Florence, the road follows the gen
eral course of the river for somethin
like fifty miles. Then it crosses it
again. Beyond this point a half dozen
surveys to tho eastward have been
made and probably tbo promoters of
the road themselves do not know ex
actly where it is going. Over thirty
ongineers in various crows are now
employed in tbeso surveying opera
At tho Buttes, on the north side of
the river, is tho first tunnel on the
line. The work on it has been com
meuccd, but suspended. Now. J. A,
McDonnell, who has charge of this
work for tho Santa Fo lines, has been
ordered from Crown King, where ho
has been working on tho extension,
and will bring down bis crew in the
next fow days. He has been ordered
to rush tho work on the Buttes tunnel
without sparing expense, it being de
sired to get the work done as soon as
possible. At present, the tracks are
laid almost to the tunzel.
Botweeu the Buttes aud Kelvin,
near which place tho road crosses the
Gila for the second time, the grade
is completed, with the exception of
some few cuts. There are some other
tunnels on the road in this region, but
the one at the Buttes is the longest
on the line, so far as theronte has yet
beeu determined upon.

The exhibition of fancy pool "play

night by Fred Hall, tbo ahampion
fancy pool player of the world, drew a
good crowd, tbe place being well filled
with admirers of tbe fascinating game
Mr,. Hall certainly maintained his
world wide reputation at tbe exhibi
tion and mado mauy shots during the
evening that seemed beyond belief
that they could be done. But he
did them, and it was "just as easy"
for him. Many of tho shots executed
by him are not made by anv other
player in tho world. Tho Journal
Miner reporter is not a pool player
and therefore cannot give a technical
description ot the wonderful perform
ance but all who understand tbe game
and witnessed Mr. Hall's marvelous
tricks with tho balls declare they
never saw anything tba begins to
compare with it. The last and crown
ing shot of tbe evening was when four
teen balls wero put into the pockets at
