A SEEKER AFTER TRUTH
In an editorial this morning ad
dressed specially to working people,
and in which a strong appeal is made
to all members of that class to vote
tie democratic ticket, our contempor
"The corner stone of democracy is
opposed to class legislation and class
legislation is the cancerous corpora
tion growth which consumes not only
the sights and substance of the man
who works for days' wages, but the
rights and substance of all outside
the plutocratic class created by class
legislation. The republican party is
the great grandfather to class legisla
tion and it has created and fostered
the trusts which own and control the
republican party; they are its chil
dren and are ably supporting it in its
very corrupt old age."
The editor of the Journal-Miner
does not take a back seat for any one
when it comes to the matter of labor
having known nothing but hard work
all of his life, and at the present time
and for the past twenty years, at
least, putting in on an average from
fourteen to sixteen hours per day.
Hence he feels that this appeal is
made to him as well as to the thou
sands of other fellow toilers in the
various avenues of industry in this
While engaged in toil and hard
labor all of these years the editor of
this paper has not . only found time,
when occasion presented itself, to
vote the republican ticket, but has. in
season and out of season, advocated
the principles of that party as being
the very best for the whole country,
which includes the people who labor,
as well as other classes.
If we have been deluded all these
years and have been working and vot
ing against our own interests.we would
like to be set right even at this late
day in life. As an earnest seeker
after truth, the following questions
are respectfully propounded to our
contemporary, simply as a matter of
What is this particular alleged
corner stone of democracy, which con
stitutes the opposition to class legis
lation? In what particular creed of
the democratic party is it to be found,
in the Bryanistic doctrines or among
the teachings of the anti-Bryanites?
What particular act, other than the
mouthings of democratic orators and
the writings of democratic editors has
the democratic party ever performed
to prevent the formation of truste or
to curb their powers when formed ?
What particular legislation has
been enacted by the republican party,
which has resulted in the cieation or
fostering of trusts, and entitling it to
the endearing appellation of being
the grandfather of trusts?
If, as alleged, the trusts control the
republican party, what alout the
army of democrats who are actively
identified with many of these consoli
dations of capital, and some of whom
control some of them?
Is this a case of trusts controlling
the republican party, and of demo
crats controlling the trusts?
Is it not a fact that the only legal
action ever brought against a so
called trust, for the purpose of
breaking it up, was instituted by a
republican administration? The cases
referred to being the action against
the beef trust and the railroad
Is it not a fact also that while our
contemporary claims that the republi

The article attempts to discredit j
(jcneral Fuuston's entire career as a
military office with the single ex
ception of h's capture of Aguinaldo.
It was probably an oversight that
this most brilliant achievement of
military skill, the execution of which
the greatest bravery was required,
was not called in question, or was not
credite.l to some other person, The
motive for the publication of the
scurrilous article is very artfully con
cealed, and unless it was actuated by
jealousy of Prescott in securing the
re establishment of Whipple, and tn-1
tended to prejudice General Funston
against Arizoua in general, no possi
ble motive except malice pure and
j simple can le imagined. The article
is uevoni oi trum ironi ueginning m

true, no possible good could come
from its publication by an Arizona
paper, and no paper worthy the uame
would b3 willing to give it publicity.
When Aguinaldo told General Mac
Arthur that the Filipinos were not
yet fitted for independence, he pre
sumably knew what he was talking
about. Moreover, the Filipinos whom
he had in mind were evidently those
in Luzon, the island with which he
was best acquainted. It is known, of
course, that the most intelligent por
tion of the natives are those who live
on Luzon. If it would take a
generation to make them fitted
for self government, how long
would it require to bring the
masses of the inhabitants of
Samar. Mindanao and the rest of the
islands up to that level in intelli
gence and balance? Yet there are
persons in the United States who
want this counvry to evacuate the ar
chipelago at once, let the Filipino
leaders start chaos, and bring in
England. Germany and the rest of
Europe for the protection of their cit
izens in the islands. The democratic
leaders in congress, under the in
spiration of Mr. Bryan, urge this
policy, tucb stupidity ana coward-

the road, when they were informed of
the fast run, immediately issued or
ders that no more such bursts of

and instructed its engineers to limit

STREET RAILROAD FRANCHISE.
The Journal-Miner on Wednesday
gave ftp to ft communication from
f. . Murphy on the subject of the
recent street railroad franchise
granted to iFrank L. Wright in which
the writer asked what the Journal-
Miner has to say on the subject.
To commence with the Journal
Miner does not consider this fran
chise a valuable one, per se, at the
present time. In other words, an
electric railway, eouBtied to the
streets of Prescott with its present
population bunched together in a
compact area as it is, would be a los
ing investment to any one who might
build it. With these conditions it
can readily be seen that the recipient
of the franchise is not viiceivitig any
thing of very great intrinsic value.
whatever estimate might be placed
on it by the city.
About ten years ago I franchise for
a street railway was granted by the
the city council of Prescott of which
Mr. Murphy was the recipient. This
franchise was eveu more liberal in its
terms than the one recently granted
to Mr. Wright in that it provided for
a year's exemption from taxatiou,
whereas the present one contains no
Before granting this franchise, we
are informed that members of the
city council obtained copies of fran
chises from a number of cities and
compared them with the one pre
sented by Mr. Wright, and it is stated
that the latter Is even more favorable
to tne city than these others.
The giving of franchises has been
a bone of contention in many of the
larger cities of the country. One was
recently granted in Philadelphia for
nothing, for which an offer of $5,000,
000 was made. In the larger cities
they have an intrinsic value, but it
will be a great many years before a
street railway franchise in Prescott
will have any special value.
It is much easier to criticise and
find fault than it is to suggest a
remedy. It is argued, and not with
out reason, that the city has gone t
great expense in grading some of its
streets, and by the terms of this fran
chise they ar turned over to the
holders of this franchise ready for
them to lay their tracks, hence the
citv should be reimbursed
way, but no way has been suggested.
The city will be the beneficiary in
many ways. When an appeal was
made to the legislature for tax ex
emption for the S. F. P. & P. rail
road, it was argued that the territory j
was practically giving nothing awav;
and that it would be greatly bene-1
, ... . .
fitted through the impetus wisfehl
would be given to the development of I
its resources and the creation of taxa-'
ble property. This condition has i
been fulfilled, even to a greater ex-

The same argument holds goad in

building ot it, with the extension as
contemplated, to the mining districts
south of town would mean the invest
ment of at least $250,00, which would
immediately become subject to taxa
tion. Street car service in this city
would result in the extension of its
limits by the formation of additions
and the building of residences and
other improvements which would also
add to the taxable property of the

In other words what the building
of the S. F., P. A P. railroad has
done for the territory, the building of
this electric railway will do for Pres
cott. While it may appear that Prescott
has given away something which, as
stated, has no intrinsic value now,

benefits from it.
Hence being unable to suggest any
better plan for the granting of a fran
chise, and not yet having seen any
proposed, the Journal-Miner cannot
consistently oppose the one as
granted, as it always has been and is
now in favor of any and every enter
prise which will tend to build up the
town and tend also to the develop
ment of the county and territory, aud

chise carefully, and be prepared to
sign a petition protesting against
such wholesale disposition of the
cit vs property if, iu their judgment, j

Prescott is to have a valuable fran

as the lieneficiary, but no such street
railway franchise as the one recently
given, should be given, or even sold,
to any one. It is not expected that
Mr. Wright will personally hold for
himself the franchise recently ob
tained. It will, as a natural conse-
think it is going to be desirable to
run lreignt trains on .viontezuma,
Gurley aud Cortez streets, such as is
(Hjssible under the franchise. If it is
desirable (as I am in hopes it will

will open up with a big lot of talk
about increased taxation through the
county being obliged to pay its just
debts, largely as a result of the efforts
of the Murphys all of which, how
ever, received this unqualified en
dorsement of a large majority of the
taxpayers of this county, and of the
entire territory. "Taxless toots" will
be indulged in freely, and it will be
claimed that I have mercenary mo
tives for taking the position that I
have seen fit to in this matter; but
the citizens of Prescott know pretty
well howl stand on all matters affect
ing the best interests of the territory,
and are not likely to be affected very
much by the cheap talk that is in
dulged in from time to time by cer
tain party press for political reasons
The only persons who are likely to
be temporarily influenced by misre
presentation of facts are the strang
ers that are flocking to the territory
as a result of the improved conditions
orought about by the healthy devel
opment of the mining interest-;,
largely due to railroad construction
and a better understanding of our
vast mineral resource-.
If everv one interested in the wel
fare of Prescott will only do half as
much as thev might, we are sure to
have one of the best - if not the best
cities in Arizona. All franchises of
' 1 importance should be given publicity
prior to the city council acting on tne
same - therein- giving tne taxpayers
an opportunity to present their views
before final action is taken. I am in
formed that if SO per cent of the vot
ing taxpayers of Prescott sign a pet
tion to the city council, protesting ten-minute speech agai list the propo
agaiust the ordinance recently passed, sition to consolidate Arizona and New

plained of, the council will lie com- j
pelled to submit the entire matter to;

STORY OF NEW GOVERNOR.
How Lieut. Brodie Captured a Band of
Indians Twenty-two Years Ago.
Twenty-two years ago Colonel
Brodie was a lieutenant in the army
station d at Fort Thomas near the
San Carlos Indian reservation. At
that time the Apaches were warlike
i anr threatening. In countiner ud the
I C .
Apaches on the reservation one time
The officer ordered Lieutenant
Brodie to take a company of men and j
go out and bring the Indians in. The
lieuteuant being a yeung man, full of
vigor and courage, selected oue man i
whom he could rely upon, and started j
out on his dangerous mission. On I
reaching the point where the Indians
were stationed, young Brodie and his '
j solitary soldier presented themselves
to the chief. The old Apache was j
mad at lieing interfered with, and
old Brodie that he proposed to kill j
him and his companion. Colonel!
Biotlie. realizing that to show the !
least evidence of fear meant death,
. i ue . i . j . i. l - r , t
ine young oiucer 10111 me cniei tnai
be had come to take him back to the i
reservation. The big chief looked
disdainfully at the soldiers, aud
again informed the officer to prepare
for death. Lieutenant Brodie, with
out further parley, pulled out a re
volver and shot the chief dead, aud
then iu a commanding tone ordered
the sixty Apaches to fall in, wich they
did. aud marched sullenly back to
the reservation under the command
of Lieutenant Brodi'.
This is one evidence of the splen
did courage of our new governor.
His father was a soldier, also his
grandfather, and fought for the inde
pendence of the American union.
Colonel Brodie is of an old Knicker
bocker family, and is a total stranger
to either fear or wrong doing, and the
Democrat believes that the gentleman
will make a governor of which both
parties will take pride in. -Phenix
The Delineator for June.
The June number of the Delineator
leaves nothing to be desired in its
fashions, in the timeliness of its
household matter, in the interest of
its literature and in the beauty of its
illustrations. The publication some
time ago of an article on "Old Blu
China" aroused so much interest and
involved so much correspondence,
that a supplementary chapter was
planned to give collectors the inform
ation desired, and appears, fully illus
trated, in this number. "Portrait

many representative pictures of

A Han to the Rescue !
The Woman in Peril Rarely Finds
Help From Her Own Sex.
It is in no wise to a woman's discredit
that she is not a professional life-saver.
We can only fancy ber in the fireman's
helmet, in the cfew of the life-boat, or
wielding a policeman's club, at the loss
of some of that fineness which is the
distinguishing quality of her sex. The
Molly Pitchers and Grace Darlings are
only examples of the sublime self-for-getfulness
of women is great emer
gencies. It's much the same in other ways.
Women turn to the strength, skill and
judgment of men in tiie crises of life.
n-nm Af Vi mrtct mmmftfl sTatpments
made in the letters grateful women
write to Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y.,
is this: "I owe my life to Dr. Pierce."
These women have found themselves in
W danKer- , Th,ey hve aPPla'ed

have counseled in vain with women
advisers The best that had been done
for tnenl was to keep them afloat in
the sea of disease with strength visibly
failing, in the hope that the man who
had strength and skill to save them
might be found.
WOMAN'S APPEAL ANSWERED.
Hundreds of thousands of women
have appealed to Dr. Pierce, for relief
from womanly ills and not one has ap
pealed in vain. The use of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription supplemented by
the medical advice of Dr. Pierce has
I s,, tne means of cure to this vast army
of women suffering from diseases pecul

"I wish to tell you the benefit I re
i ceivetl from using your remedies,"
! writes Mrs. Alice Soncrant, of 261 W.
Harrison Street, Chicago, Ills. "Two
vears ago I was taken with a severe pain
in the left ovary and side. Tried several
j different remedies, but nothing helped
i me. I got so bad I could scarcely walk
across the floor or do work of any kind.
One day an old neighbor lady came in
tr m m and told me to try Dr.
pierce s Favorite Prescription. She
said she knew it would help me, as it
had saved her life.
When the doctors
had given her up and said they could
do nothing for her she said she began to
take Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
and it cured her. So I got a bottle of
the ' Favorite Prescription ' and one of
' Golden Medical Discovery," and began
taking them. Before I had taken one
bottle of each I was so much better I
could do all my own work, and that is a
good deal, as I am the mother of four
small children. Three bottles of the
' Favorite Prescription ' and one of
Golden Medical Discovery ' cured me.
I have not been sick since then. I think

vour ' Favorite Prescription ' is a
i-!rful medicine for women."
Such cures as that of Mrs. Soncrant
are many, and they speak for the power
oi Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
hotter than the most eloquent words of
piaise. The test of a medicine is, what
h is it done for women ? By that test
Favorite Prescription " invites wom
an's verdict. On the testimony of
trustworthy women, "Favorite Pre
scription" has saved life where physi
cians had given up all hope. It has
cired the most stubborn and obstinate
f rms of womanly disease. It has ban
ished pain, restored the appetite, in
duced refreshing sleep, given color to
the cheeks and roundness to the form,
WOMEN WHO CANNOT BE CURED.
There are few women for whom tx
perfect cure is possible. The number of
such women has been reduced to a mini
mum by the practical ex
perience of Dr. Pierce. Of
the hundreds of thousands
of women who have ap
pealed to Dr. Pierce for
counsel in connection with
his '"Favorite Prescrip
tion," only two in every
hundred have failed of a
perfect and permanent
cure. But even this two
per cent, of incurables
have gratefully recorded a
great improvement in their
condition; relief from pain,
and a restoration to family
'.- sick woman should
be dUcoi.rjged bt- her esfsa
ditioo, no matter how lonaf
standing her ailment may
be, or how utterly all'other'
means and medicines have
failed to cure. The great
er number of cures effect
ed by "Favorite Prescrip
tion " are cures of chronic
and complicated diseases
which have baffled the
skill of local physicians
and proved intractable to
all other treatment.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
makes weak women strong and sick
women well. It establishes regularity,
dries disagreeable and weakening drains,
heals inflammation and ulceration, and
cures female weakness. It is the great
est preparative for maternity, giving
womanly health and strength and mak
ing baby's advent practically painless.
A GREAT FREB OFFER.
Sick women are invited to consult
Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. All corres
pondence is held in sacred confidence,
and womanly confidences are guarded
by strict professional privacy. Address
Dr. Pierce. Buffalo, N. Y.
There is no similar offer of free con
sultation by letter or free medical advice,
which has behind it an institution such
as the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical In
stitute, Buffalo. X. Y., to which for over
thirty years Dr. Pierce has been chief
consulting physician, assisted by a med

in the treatment and cure of womanly
" Favorite Prescription " contains no
alcohol, neither cpiu-n, cocaine, nor any
other narcotic. It is purely a vegetable
preparation and cannot disagree with
the weakest constitution.
Some dealers for the sake of the little
more profit paid by inferior prepara
tions, will tr- and sell (he customer a
substitute lor "Favorite Prescription"
as being "just as good." "Just as
good " medicires do not have the cures
to their credit which make women hail
"Favorite Prescription" as a "Godsend
to women." Don't barter the substance
for the shadow.
IT WILL SURPRISE YOU
to see the great medical work which Dr.
Pierce gives free to women. This great
