Washington, February 14 Per
sons unacquainted with the undercur
rents of things congressional could net'
no sigus of the. fierce tight for and
against Oliver in the quiet ending of the
debate on the free coinage substitute
for the House boud bill, nor in the
taking of the voto by which the House
refused by a heavy majority to accept
Hint substitute. That Is because the
contest was too one-sided to jiibi if an
lighting i lit Hide of the Congressional
Record, and that which took place in
the pages of Mint publication was for
the edification of expectant constitu
ents. But ail the same that fight-Jia
been going ou front the daj Congress
assembled everywhere that either side
has had a fighting chance to gain a
point. One of the most important of
these fights, involving six silver sen
ators, was this week determined when
the House committee ou Teiritoiies,
by the slender majority of one vote,
decided not to leporta bill admitting
Arizona to statehood. Tlui committee
diil not divide on party lines, but ou
silver, and this vote means that bills
for thn admission of New Mexico and
Oklahoma will inoet iho samo fate,
and that tho six recruits which the.
silver senators expected from the three
new States will not materialize duiiug
the life of this Congress.
Senator Quay is the latest acquisi
tion to tho number of "favoiite sons"
whose names will bo presented to the
St. Louis convention for presidential
honois. Senator Quay says ho lias no
desire to be president, and adds, with
reuiaikable candor for a politician,
that by supporting him to the extent
of a complimentary vote Ids Pennsyl
vania friends will avoid the embarrass
ment which might follow their support
ing some other candidate. It is notice
ablo that the "favorite son" idea is
being encouraged by tho leading prac
tical politicians, and the reasun is not
far to seek. It gives them an oppor
tunity to combine on tho winner which
they would not havo if a nomination
was made on the first ballot.
The Dawes Indian commission, the
members of which have have had what
the street gamins call a "good thing"
for nearly two years, is going to be
wiped out by Secretary Hoke Smith
because of its failure to do anything to
warrant its continued existenoe. The
commission spent the greater part of
ibesummeisof '94 and '95 in Indian
Territory, but accomplished nothing.
Secretary Smith has officially notified
the Indian committees of the House
and Senate that the Dawes commission,
tho members of which are now iti
Washington, will remain in existence
for another month in order that the
committees may havo an opportunity
of obtaining any information the com
mission may have acquired during its
negotiations with the Indians. Then
several gentlemen will cease to draw
Uncle Sam's money.
Senator Wolcott of Colorado made a
few remutkN based upon a clause in the
urgency deficiency bill allowing the
peeietary of the treasury to appoint
twenty-five expert money counters
without rt quit ing them to pass a civil
service examination, which was quite
as sensational as his recent auli-Mouroe
doctrine speech. He said that the real
menace to the country was not the
ch il service commission, but the power
of patronage lodged with the Execu
tive, and which had never before been
abused to such an extent as under the
present administration; that a free
coinage bill would have been passed
by the House of the last Congress had
not the power of patronage been
brought to bear by the administration;
that Colorado is to-day flooded with
appointments, many of them unfit ones,
made bj the secrelatt of I lie treasitrv
for congressmen who "ratted" on the
silver bill, thus debauching constituen
cies; that the best service that could
be performed would be to deprive the
president and his cabinet officers of all
patronage, su that senators and leure-

To Lease the School Lands.
Below we givo the much talked of
bill to lease the school lands in the
Territory of Arizona. Tho bill was
introduced by Delegate Murphf, audit
does not protect the interest of the
public as it should. It will probably
lead to much trouble in the future:
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the United
Stats of America in Co u gross as
sembled, that the lands reserved for
university purposes and all of the
school lauds in the Territory of Ai i
zona reserved by law for school pur
poses may be leased under such laws
as may be hereafter prescribed by the
legislature of said Territory ; but uutil
such legislative action tho governor,
secretary of the Territory and superin
iutendeut of public instiuction shall
constitute a board for the leasing of
said lands under the rules and regula
tions heretofore prescribed by the sec
retary of the interior for the respective
purposes tor which the said icserva
lions were made, except that it shall
not be necessary to sttumit sucli lease.

Last Monday Joseph Sullivan was
brought to Florence and lodged in the
county hospital, with a bullet iu his
head. It entered just below the left
temple, destroy ing the sight of one ej e.
The wound was received nt Maricopa
the day before at tho hands of Con
ductor Long of tho Southern Paollio
railroad, while Sullivan was attempt
ing to steal a ride. His condition is
dangerous, and the wound is likely to
reMill in death. Sulliiau is evidently
of tho genus hobo, but'that is no reason
why the felony, if onehas been com

The famous Copper Glance mine in
Cochise county is beginning to be con
sidered a $1,000,000 mine. A 14-foot
ledgo has been discovered running up
Iho mountain side, and so phenomen
ally licit iu both copner and silver that
it can be wotked at an immense profit
regardless of nilver legislation. The
owner of the Copper Glance is, as
nearly ever) body knows, Samuel Don
nelly, the philanthropist, who con
ducts his camp on CluUt'an prin
ciples and emptors the profit of the
mine mainly to Increase his power for
doing good. Therefore there is no
uiiuu owner in At izona to whom people
generally would rather see good for
tune in the way of a big stiike come.
This new discovery will not only
open up a wider field for laborers iu
Southern Arizona, but other enter
piiseswill be stimulated by it. The
university will probably become a
beneficiary of Mr. Donnelly's good for
tune. He has already contributed gen
erously to the assistance of worthy
students, and has intimated that his
contiibutious would increase with the

Following is the law legulating the
killing of deer: Act No. 77, which be

who in thi Territory shall between the
first day of January and the fiit-'t day
of September of each )ear hunt, puisue,
take, kill or destroy any male orleraalo
deer, or fawn, or antelope, is guilty of
a misdemeanor. The presence of the
uudiied flesh of any of the above
mentioned animals makes the possessor
equally responsible. The lowest pen
alty is 50 for each animal or any por
sion thereof, or one day in jail tor each
dollar of the fine.
A Good Man Crosses Over.
Harry M Wood, father of Cochise
county and one of the best newspaper
men in Arizona, died on Friday in his
chair at Nogales. He founded the
Tombstone "Record,", and sened iu
the eleventh legislature with Thomas
Dunbar and B. A. Fickas, at the time
Cochise county was cut off from Pima.
With a long and fiiendiy acquaintance,
it is only fitting to say his demise will
sadden many hearts all over the coast.
He was just in the prime of life, prob
ably 45 years of age, and at the time
of his death was deputy custom col
