Telegrams on Wednesday from Wash
ington indicated that there is a possi

hood bill, whereby Arizona and New
Meixco will ha admitted as one state.
i ! con 1 -. those who are the loudest
-hooter- for statehood are opposed to
this measure but then, mark you,
these self same loudest shouters every
last one of them have some personal
object in view in wanting statehood.
A score or so of them want to go to
coiii.'i ess, or to the United States sen
ate, two score or more of them want
to U' governor, then there is a lieu
tenant g iveruor. secretary of state and
a whole lot of other offices to All. If

Arizona is a democratic territory
aud it admitted will be a democratic
state. New Mexico is republican as
rule, and would probably lie a re
publican state, aud could furnish a
republican majority, if united with
Arizona as a state, to overcome the
democratic majority in this territory.
That would knock the aspirations of a
great many democratic politicians in
'he head, henre the disfavor with
which they look upou it. This shows
that with a great many ieople the ad
vocacy of statehood is not a principle
but a policy.
Again, there is a long list of schem
ers, who want statehood. Some have
legitimate business enterprises which
they desire to promote. Others have
the wildest sort of wild cat schemes.
The iermaueuce aud stability which a
state government would give would
prove beneficial to both of these
classes. They do not want too big a
state, and care not a fig for statehood
:i My except as it will promote
their personal ends. The lieueflt to
le received by the masses are not
taken into consideration.
Statehood under proper conditions
would le a good thing for all con
cerned. The territory of Arizona and
New Mexico combined as a state under
the euphonious and pleasing name of
Arizona would make a commonwealth
which would attract attention all over
the I'nited States. The only thing
lacking to make it wholly complete
i- a small slice from southern Califor
nia extending to the Pacific ocean, so
the great state which would be rich
in mines, in stock, in timber, in ag
ricultural and horicultural resources,
might also have a sea port of its own.
It would soon make a veritable em
pire in itself. While there would be
one capital less and it would afford
A special telegram from Washington
to the Phenix Republican says: "The
omnibus bill, I bleieve, is dead. A
bill admitting Oklahoma and the In
dian territory as one state aud Ari
zona and New Mexico as another state
is seriously considered, and is the
only measure possible this session.
It is proposed to give the unte Ari
zona to the new state made up of Ari
zona aud New Mexico, the capital to
be at Santa Fe. This is regarded as a
possible outcome of the present legis
lation, although all legislation may
fail and an extra session be forced on
account of the pending treaties, ap
propriation bills and trust legisla
tion." The Journal -Miner in its last issue
treated this question at some length,
as to the admission of both territories
as one state, which naturally brought
forth an expression of opinion from
its morning contemporary emphati
cally opposing it. This was to be ex
pected. In the course of the remarks
made by the aforesaid contemporary it
said that if left to a vote of the peo
ple 9." per cent would vote against it.
Of course it is simply presumptive on
its part to assume to know how the
people of the territory stand on the
question. As to a preferene to admis
sion, alone or combined with New
Mexico there is no doubt that the
people of Arizona would prefer the
former natrually. As to not being
admitted at all or being united with
New Mexico and gaining admission
the chances are that exclusive of the
candidates for office the proposition
would carry overwhelmingly. If
statehood is a good thing, and no one
doubts it, both territories would be
benefitted as one state, and it would
not be long, under statehood rule,
until Arizona would have the required
300.000 population to become a separ
Another statement of our contem
porary is that politics do not enter
man in the territory that does not
know better than this. Were it not
for the fact that Arizona is over
whelmingly democratic there would
not be such a solid democratic front
in the senate supporting it.
Another Fine Brick Building To Be
Erected on North Cortez
Ola Cliff House to Be
and a Modern Hotel
Take Its Place.
Stephen J. Gnash was a passenger
for Los Augeles today, having been
summoned to that city to consult with
architects who are preparing plan
for a splendid new brick building
which it is proposed to erect on lie
lot where the old frame Cliff House
now stands, at the corner of Cortez
aud Willis streets.
This property lelongs to a Mr.
Peery, of Greeley, Colorado, and is a
very valuable piece of property, so
valuable in fact, that Mr. Peery has
decided to remove the old frame build
ing and make the costly improve
ments above mentioned
The building will have a 50-food
front and will extend clear liack to
the alley and be at least three -lories
high with possibly four stories, cost
ing something like MO,O0Q.
The first floor will contain the hotel
rotunda, a tine barlier shop and an up
to date restauraut. where the patrons
of the house, as well as the general
public, can secure as fine a meal as
the market will afford. This will lie
made a special feature of the new
house. There will lie about Ml rooms
in the upper stories, provided t hen
are only three stories, but if the plans
should be for four stories there will
lie about li") rooms for lodging pur
poses. They will be built and fur-

In summing up. the court holds:
"The fact that no decision can In

prohibit the publishing of evidence i
developed in the course of such trial
is strongly persuasive of the absence
of such power; for if it had been as

some judge, before this time, would
have stopped it ; we would have a re

cyiy-d that some other court in
some other state had decided in favor
of the iKwer of the courts to inhibit
the publication of testimony and to !
treat a violation of the order as a mat
ter of contempt, then such decision,
in order to be even persuasive, should
afford some good aud sufficient reason j
as its basis, otherwise it would be en
titled to but little consideration, es
pecially when we take into view our
constitutional provisions which have
a hearing on the subjvt.
"Section 8 of our bill of rights
guarantees to au accused perea 1 1
speedy public trial by an iniiartial
jury. If the constitution guarantees
a public trial, is it in the power of
the court to make it a private trial:
If not, then where is the power of the
court to prohibit spectators or to re
quire or enforce thereafter silence on
those who have witnessed and heard
the proceedings? If there is no power
on the part of the court to prevent
spectators from rehearsing evidence.
by the same logic the court has
authority to prevent a publication of
the testimony. "

peaae of maintaining one state would
lie a vast amount less than the cost of

Naval Constructor Hobson has ten
dered his resignation to the navy de
partment, and it has been forwarded
to tne president with the recommen
dation that it be accepted. Hobson
was given an assignment for duty
which was not to his liking and he re
signed. Now he claims he was forced
out of the navy. Department officials
say he forced himself out. The fact
is that the Merrimac affair was too big
for Hobson. It was a daring deed,
and was applauded by the world.
Hobson was feted by men and kissed
by women until his head seemed to
have been turned. He is a good naval
officer and there were greater possi
bilities yet in store for him if he had
chosen to remain in the navy. He as

SUPERSTITIOUS MRS PULLMAN.
Because Zauoui. a mystic that Mrs.
George M. Pullman brought from New
York, told her that "7" - h.-r unlucky

start for California on Tuesday, the
27th day of January, as she at first in

of a physical break-down.
That's the doctrine of a great many
indolent people. They say "it will go
away after a bit when cautioned to "do
something " for their ailment. Just
imagine a farmer looking over the fence
at the sprouting weeds in his corn and
saying "they'll go away after a bit."
Diseases are like weeds. All they ask
is neglect and they will grow and flour
ish. Neglect the first symptoms of dis
ease of the stomach and it will not be
long before other organs are involved,
because every organ of the body is de
pen lent on the stomach and its allied
organs for nutrition. When the stomach
and other organs of digestion and nutri
tion are diseased the food eaten is
not perfectly digested and assimilated.
Hence there is a loss of nutrition by the
liodv; a loss which shows itself in loss of
ilcsh, and reduced weight, and that loss
of nutrition is shared ty every organ of
he body, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys,
etc. As a consequence when the stom
ich is diseased, the heart is liable to be
involved, or the lungs, kidneys or liver.
These facts emphasize the danger of

Fmk, of Yost, Rowan Co.,
N. C. "List winter I was
so had off that I thought
h impossible for me to live
until spring. I was taken
sick in January ami was in
- pain all over. The doctor
was ca.ied, and said my
liver was out of order.
He gave me some medicine
but it 'tid me no good.
I grew steadily worse. I
could not eat as much as
one bite of bread without
great pain, and was so
- hungry all the time thit I
thong! it I wr.uld starve to
death. My head ached,
my shoulders ached. I
was cr.s-. My brain failed
so much that I thought
I was almost insane. I
could not sleep sight! mly a short while
at a time. Would get up mornings so
weak and nervons. I eanU scarcely stand.
In this way I suffered. 1 think, about two
months, when a friend of mine induced
me to write to Dr. Tierce for advice,
which I did. His answer was .h.it I had
indigestion and liver complaint, and ad
vising me to take his ' Golden Medical
Discoverv.' I followed the Doctor's
directions closely, and in a few tiays I
could discover that I was getting bet.er
slowly. Every day I felt just a little
better, then I could lu gin to ea. little
light diet. Then I beyau to sleep a
little better at night and in the morning
would feel refreshed and rested. Next
I began to gather a little flesh, and then
I began to improve mpidiy. I took
eight bottles of "Golden Medical Discov
ery ' and several vials of ' Pleasant Pel
lets,' and I felt that I was w ell enough
to leave off medicine and 30 to work,
which I did with pleasure. I have not
taken any medicine since except Dr.
Pierce's Pellets. I can eat anythi-i and
as much as I want and it never now
hurts me a particle."
There is no alcohol in "Golden Med
