own parly, he no longer is physically
able to make the (igut in which he
has gloried in the past. His term of
service expires iu .March, HU1. Much
may happen within those two years.
Aldrich, a younger man, and iu bet
ter physical trim, being but 07, grow
ing tired of the political battle he has
waged so successfully for many years,
has announced that he will retire at
the end of his present term, two years
neuce. Aldrich entered the senate the
same veur with the two senators from
.Maine, but iu the following October.
He is the authority among the repub
licans on all questions of tiunnce and
tariff. As chuirmau of the committee
dealini; with these subjects he has
forced his personal views upon every
piece of legislation in tho past twenty
year', lie is a uign protectionist irom
state prominent in manufactures and
his business relations are interwoven
with some of toe greatest industries
in the country. It may happen that
he will be perMiadcd to accept one
more term, although if the republicans
revise the tariff in the Sixty-first eon-
gie-ss, which will be the last two years
of Mr. Aldrich's term of office, he may
be able to control that task so satis
factorily to himself that tiiere will be
uo ucoi for him longer to assume the
burdens of statesmanship.
Messis. Hale and Aldrich, however,
are apt to find it a very diflicult task
when the Sixty-first Congress convenes
to compel such obedience to the wishes
of the remaining small guard of eon
servatives as they have been accustom
ed to in the past. Hadlcalisin is grow-
in.' with remarkable rapidity iu the

PIIOKNIX, Sept. 111. Tne (Jazette
says: More confident than ever of the
election of J Ion. Itulph Cameron as
Arizona's next delegate to congress,
Hovnl A. Smith, chairman of the ter
ritorial republican committee, and
(leorge IT. Young, secretary of the
same organization, are iu the city.
Roth gentlemen hnve just relumed
from their home cities, Hisbee and
Preseott, respectively, and both saw
aud heard many things to encourage
"Cameron is elected this morning,"
said Secretary Young to the (.azette
today. "If tomorrow was election day
we would elect our man. Hut the elec
tion does not come until November,
and we have a mouth and a half in
which to do our campaigning and more
mi I idly unite tiie republican party. We
are going after votes and .intend to get.
them by every honest means. If there
is a yellow dog who can swing a vote
for Cameron we are going to fix it
witli the bow-wow"
Secretary Young remarked further
that if any danger at all exists for
Cameron it is within his own party.
"This is no time for personal nuimoi
ties," he said. " Republicans mukt get
together this year. Let every man sub
merge himself in the party and work
not for his own good and pleasure, but
for the good of the party. I am not
given to making optimistic predictions
and I am seldom wrong in my estimate
of a political situation, but 1, say with
out equivocation that Cameron will "be
elected if his friends do the right
thing." ,
Since leaving Phoenix last Friday,
the day after the big Cameron meeting
at the city hall praza, Chairman Smith
has been through Urahnm, Coenise and
Santa Cruz counties.. In speaking of
the situation, he said:
"There is an everincreasing Camer
on .sentiment throughout Cochife, Santa
Cruz and (Jraham. I don't think there
is anything new I can tell you, but it
looks' better every day now. The way
the people are talking about him Is
something wonderful. To get voters to
earnestly discuss u caudidate is to .lave
tiie battle half won.
"Theie will be a meeting of the ter
ritorial executive committee in this
it v tomorrow. Nothing ot a special
nature is expected to come up, but gen
eral plans for the campaign will be dis
cussed. Cameron is not to be left to
his own campaigning. No matter where
he mnv be. he is to have agents worh
Ing for ills interests in every part of
the territory."
Kverv member of the executive com
mittee has promised to be ou hand and
the meeting will bo a largo one.
fif deceased, pays the following tribute
to Dr. McNaughton in the Pasadena
dames MeNanght6n, who died al his
home, 331 Soutn Lflke avenue, last Sat
urday evening, was born near Chau
tauqua Lake, X. Y., 1S37. Like so ma
ny nt Iters who have achieved distinc
tion, he had to fight ids way. He grad
uated from Allegheny College, Pa., of
which Calvin Kingsley, afterwards
bishop, was president. Like his groat
presiduut, Mr. McNaughlon excelled in
nmtiiemntics. A few years after his
graduation he received from his nlin.'i
mater the degress of master of art.
His persistence is seen in (he fact that
he won his degree of doctor of philos
ophy by mastering a three years course
of study iu the Illinois Wesleyan t'ni
versify while discharging the full du
ties of superintendent of city schools.
His career as an educator, whie.i
really began when he was only 17
years of age, while it may not be en
titled to be called brilliant, was, never
theless, of a solid and enudrlng charae
ter. He was superintendent of schools
in Faribault, Minn., Council Rluirs,
Iowa, and iu San Jose, California. He
also taught in Dakota, and In Winona,
Minn. At Council HlufTs he held the
position of superintendent for seven
Perhaps his greatest work as u
teacher was done in Arizona in con
nectioii with the building up of tne
Arizona Normal School, of which he
wns president.
As a man, Mr. McNaughton was not
showy, or what would be called bril
liant, but a plodding, sincere mnn,
whose conscience would not allow him
to compromise with what ho thought to
be error, nn-1 whose tenacity some
times brought him what such qualities
always make possible, and even proba
ble, if not also certain. Hut he had
this advantage, he knew that he was
sleeping with a clean man.
From early years a devoted member
of the Methodist Kpiscopal church, his
life did not give the lie to his pro
fessimi. He was as good on all the
days of tho week as he was on Snndny,
and his secular life, happily, did not
contradict his religious life." In fnet,
lie was a man to be depended upon.
(Continued from Page One.)
The speaker did not gain any friends
by referring contemptuously to Ralph
Cameron as an inexperienced man. In
a bombastic and egotistical manner
he said: "There is not a man in this
audience, no matter how hignty edu
cated he may be, who can go to Con
gress und face the responsibilities I
tremblingly assume in framing tho
destinies of a new state," and even
Colonel Wilson who was on the stage
tnrned purple in the face as Mark
Smith infercntially depreciated his
own abilities as a statesman.
"Shall all these experiences of mine
be given up," he continued, "and
turned over to the inexperienced Itulph
Cameron "
Hut unconsciously Mr. Smith became
humorous. In speaking of national Is
suesfor no never alluded to those of
Arizona he referred to Hryan as u
man "we have nominated twice and
who has never changed the color of his
Men in the audience smiled and
nudged each other at this, for it is
well known that the liny Orator of the
Platte is one of the most skillful slile
steppers in the political ring. Thero
were further desultory remarks con
.eruing national jmlitical topics, but
in his thirty minute talk, tho speaker
never advanced a single reason why
lie deserves re-election to congress.

Journal-Miner for high class job work,
WASHINGTON, Sent. !0.Tne case
of Congressman Charles D. Cnrter, of
the Fourth Oklahoma district, has
again impressed upon administration
ollicials the desiraimity or. some
change iu tho law respecting the roln-
tions of senators and representatives
to federal contrnets. Carter is guilty
of an offense ngalnst the United States
punishable by a fine of II.OOO, yet
clearly no moral turpitude is involved
in his offense.
It seems that Carter is owner of the
building at Ardmore, Oklahoma, iu
which tne postofllce Is located. Car
ter has been owner of the building nnd
the postoflirn has been located there
under lease since 1003, or for more
thuii four yenn before Carter became
a member of congress. It is manifest
ly absurd that when Oklaiuoha was
admitted ns a stute and Carter was
elected a member of congress ho should
bo .compelled to dispose of the build
ing or the postolllce be compelled to
find new quarters, yet the law is spe
cific and allows of no evasion.
, It is a good principle, of course, that
members of congress should nor lie al
lowed to use tneir positions to their
own advantage nnd to others' dUnd
vantage, but tt is recognized that tho
law governing the subject should
have more flexibility, In this case the
leate was made before Cnrter had any
prospect of being a member of con
gress ,nnd if it was an advantageous
lease for the government to make In
1003 it undoubtedly Is nn advantageous
lease for the government to maintain
now. A bill probably will bo Intro
duced at the next session of congress
providing that any contract with the
government may continue to its ex
piration, even if during its term n
party to thn contract should become n.
member of congress. ,
