Murphy Plainly and Fearlessly

A reporter from the Journal-Miner
dropped in again today to see if Mr.
Murphy could tell him anything new
about the situation at Poland-Lynx

that there was nothiug new to report.

j company, had written him that there
; would be no difficulty in filling the
: places vacated by the machine men
'and miners; that there was abso

Prescott are due almost entirely to

for years. Yet the democratic state
convention never said a word in their
favor in its long platform and pre

" Was this neglect because the
democrats were convinced that the
admission of the proposed states
would strengthen the republicans in
the senate and the electoral college?
That it would have this effect there is
" But there is something more than
representation in the senate and the
right to participate in presidential
elections involved in the highly im
portant question of statehood for
these territories. The people who
are asking for statehood are intelli
gent, loyal, capable of maintaining
state governments. They are en
titled to the right to make their own
laws, and Colorado should sympa
thize with them.
"The whole west is interested in
this question. The development of
the trans-Mississippi region calls for
the perfection of local governments
as speedily as possible. A territory
is but a province of the national
government. Its very existence as a
distinct community depends upon
the will of congress. A government
like that in wide awake, intelligent
American communities like New
Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma is not
conducive to material development.

CLEAR, CLEAN AND COURAGEOUS.
Ye believe that republicanism in
politics will signally triumph in Ari

the appeals of devotion and patriot
ism of the people to the cause of

is before us today in peace and plen

is, be obedient and conservative, and

paign of the congressional fight there

industrial proportions, the possibility
of an administrative regard in public
improvements iu all for once, har
mony. Who is there that is so close
mouthed that will take away from
Robt. Morrison the noble seutiments
he expressed last nitrh t as he opened
the campaign iu behalf of his party
and himself, and place him in the
narrow and inconsistent channel of
partisan vituperation and personal
selfishness. Did he not openly and
candidly state to the people how he
truth, and did he not do so in fair
ness and sacredness to himself and
to the people? On all matters did
he not waije anvthiuf' in the issues
before the people iu the spirit of fair- j
ness and truthfulness, aud was there i
anything uttered bv him that was ;
vicious or uureasonable. antagonistic
or rebellious in a personal or a poli
tical way to auy man? Was not the
formal opening of the campaign last
night an honest one, even to dem
ocrats? Never before in the history of Ari
zona and its political strife has such
a meeting taken place, and from the
purity of purpose iu uational issues
to even the rights of labor in Yavapai
did not Mr. Morrison speak patriot
ically in the first anil nobly ou the
latter? Did uot his hearers feel a
kindred in his seutiments as he gave
to the wage men of this section the
regard due them aud their vocation?
Did be not also suppress what is a ls American to handle American ships,

with this part of the country from

him without inquiring much about
