WHAT MURPHY SAID.
He Did Not Malign the Oiizens of
Ills Speech In tho House on the Uni
versity Iund Hill Its lleKuluttons
l'rohlblt the Cutting or Timber
on the Lands li bo Leased.
So much has been said about the le-
nmiks of Delegate Murphy- in tyo.
Houso on tho occasion of tho passage
of tho bill to leaso tho school lands over
tiio president's veto, Hint wo publish
below his speech, taken from tho "Con
gressional Record" of February 29th:
Mr. Lacej I yield five minutes to
tho gcutleman from Arizona.
Mr. Murphy of Arizona Mr. Speak
er, I desire to cousumo but very few
moments upon this question. For tho
fomtccii years I have lived in Aiizona
it has been tho continuous wish of our
people Hint soma revenue should
aecruo to tho Territory from tho use
of tho school lands Under the United
Slates statutes the sixteenth and lliir
ty-sixth sections of tho public lauds are
i citcrved for school purposes until the
Tenitory shall" become a State; but
until the time it does become a State,
no revenue whatever is deiived from
tho use of thoso lands. JMany people
settle upon these lauds before they are
surveyed and liud afterwards that they
are required to pay no taxes, anil they
contiibuto not one. iota to the main
tenance of tho government which pro
Much of the land in Arizona is arid,
much is mountainous, much is valuable
for timber and also for farms. After
it had been discovered that some of
the sections 1G and SG are valuable fur
agricultural imposes they are settled
upon for tho reason that the settlers
desire to avoid pacing any reveuue
which contributes to tho maintenance
of the schools. That is tho very ob
ject. Tho Fifteenth Legislature of
Arizona unanimously memorialized
Congress to pass a bill .similar to this
one. I have recommended it in my
oflieial life there, and every governor
since, within my knowledge, has recom
mended the same thing. No protest
has ever come from anybody until this
time; no protest has ever becu pre
sented to me or to any member of this
House or of the Senate, .so far as my
Now, in regard to having the leases
submitted to the secretary of the in
tciiorfor his approval, In the caso of
the Oklahoma bill, the commissioner of
tho general land offlco specifically
recommended against that, as tho
House has heard iti this discussion, and
the secretary specilieally approved of
tho recommendation of the general
I wish to say a few woids now in
reply to the gentleman from Georgia
Mr. Turner, who possibly did not
hear my positive statement that the
secretary of tho interior did approve
this very bill. Subsequent to the pas
sago of tho bill I went to tiie White
House and asked thepiivato secretary
of tho president, Mr. Thurber, the
condition of the bill. He said, "It has
gouo to tho interior department and
you had better go down there." I went
to the interior department and asked
the commissioner of the general land
jbffice, Judge Lamorelix, what had be
come of the bill. He said: "I sigued
it with my approval about twenty min
utes ago and it has gone to the secre
retary." I went to tho secretary and
saw his secretary, who had the bill in
his possession, and while I was tnere
he took it to Secretary Smith, secured
his approval, brought it back and
showed it to mc. And in my judgment
Mr. Secretary Smith has been put ot
the city ever since that lime.
In regard to tho protests that have
been sent to the president, it is very
easy to understand that the people unw
occupying these lauds and pacing no
taxes upou them desire to have that
happy condition of things continued.
It is also true that uiaiiy corporations
own largo pieces of land that come
within this description and they desire
to hold control, thinking that statehood
may be delayed for some time. One
corporation has GOO acres improved
and under fence for speculative pur
poses, and forbids its occupation by

president, but from $75,000 to $100,
000 of levcnuo will How into theschool
fund annually fiom tho leasing of theso
lands, and will to that extent relievo
tho burden of taxation upon other
citizens of tho Territory, who are now
compelled to make It up. In short,
Mr. Speaker, I can conceivo no pos
sible reason why this bill should not
become n law, in view of past prece
dents, and I certainly think the presi
dent must have acted in this matter
Mr, Steele What about tho timber
Mr. Muiphyof Arizona Along the

seventy-two sections have been re
served for university purposes. Some
of it is good and some of it is not, but
tho regulations now prohibit tho de
nuding of these lands of timber, and it
is not to bo presumed that tho gov
ernor and secretary of tho Territory,
who aie appointed by Mr. Cleveland,
are moro corrupt than the ofliccrs of
Oklahoma Territory. They aro resi
dents of the To i ritory, they live there,
and tliero is no possibility of their

The Eeed Campaign for the Presi
Congress Can Compel Cleveland to
Carry Out Its Wishes In the Cuban
Matter The Alabama Senator
ial Klectlon Investigation.
FROM OCR REOULAR CORRESPOKDEST.l
Washington, March C If Con-
gress is in earnest about wishing the
belligerency of tho Cubins recognized
and steps taken towards the ultimate
independence of Cuba it must take an
other tack, as President Cleveland
served notice upon them, in advance of
the agreement between tho House and
Senate upon tho exact form of the con
current resolution, that ho will pay no
attention to that document, because it
is not in accordance with his views as
to the proper position this Government
shall occupy towards the Cubans. This
notice, which was in tho form of a state
ment prepared and given out by Secie
tary Olney, is regarded as extraor
dinary in moro ways than ono. It
would have been extraordinary had it
been given out after Congress had
liually acted upon tho Cuban resolu
tion. It is a new thing for the presi
dent to s.xy to Congress in advanco of
its action that he will not be governed
by it. The members of tho Spanish
lobby in Washington aie much pleased
a'. President Cleveland's attitude; they
say it will deprive the Cubans of any
benefit they might have received from
tho adoption of the resolution by Con
gress. Congress has .a weapon with which
It can compel Mr. Cleveland to carry
out its wishes in this matter. The vote
upon the Cuban resolution showed only
six senators and seventeen representa
tives opposed to it. It will thereforo
bo an easy matter, should Mr. Cleve
land persist in refusing to act upon tho
concurrent resolution, to adopt tho
same in tho form of a joint resolution.
Should ho veto it Congress can easily
pass it over his veto, provided, of
couise, that two-thirds of both House
aud Senate have the nervo to do so.
The moro conservative clement in Con
gress favor waiting a reasonable time
to see ifho president will act upon the
concurrent resolution before taking
further steps, and that will probably
bo done, unless something now occurs
to arouse tho fighting blood of Con
gress. Hon. Joseph Manley of Maine, who
is in charge of tho Reed campaign for
the Republican presidential nomina
tion, lias established his headquarters
in Washington. Ho says of recent
reports about Now England opposition
to Reed: "There is not- the slightest
doubt that Speaker Reed will secure
tho solid vote of New England. It is
folly to talk of anything else. It is
very easy to say that a man is not
solidly supported in his own section.
Everybody kuows that tliero are war
ring factions among the Republicans
iu Ohio, and that if it were to come to
a showdown between Foraker and Mc
Kinley tho former would undoubtedly
win. Nevertheless, no one doubts that
the Ohio delegation will be solid for
its favorite son, aud properly so. tie
Is entitled to the vote of that State
just the same as Governor Morton is to
that of New York and Senator Culloni
that of Illluois. Mr. Reed will be
quite as solid in New England as any
other candidate will be iu his own
Tho House Judiciary committee this
week reported a bill that is in line with
common, everyday business sense and
uught to speedily become a law. It
makes it unlawful for United States
oflicials'to purchase, directly oil firtH
recti, vouchers for witness fees in
Unitof States courts or any other
claims against the Government, and
makes the penalty for violation re
moval from office and a fine of from
$50 t $.5,000.
The Sonato committee on privileges
aud i J ctions has reported iu favor of
the Al ji resolution providing for an
invc'tJition by a select-committee of
tho Se n ito of the last Alabama sena
torial election. Tho minority of tho
committed made a report against the
resolution. As the resolution will be
voted for by all the Populists and all
or nearly all of the Republicans, its
adopt i n is regarded as almost a cer
taintr, unless the Democrats resort to
lilibr aring to preveut a vote.

it is tl o light tho motion to reconsider

Theio is food for thought in the fol
lowing apt arid timely words spoken by
Senate-Palmer of Illinois: "The Con
gress f the Uaited States finds it an
easy i a .ter to attend to the affairs of
other ntions, but has shown itself
utter'j incompetent to deal with our
domes iu affairs. The grave questions .
of a deficiency in tho public revenue
and a crippled currency are pressing
upou us for solution, aud we acknowl
edge our iuability to master them. But
we ci. reach out and settle tho affairs
ofotiiir governments with caso and
dispat h." Mr. Palmer isn't tho only
perse r who has noted the tendency of
Conf i ? to take a more decided stand
upou ho affairs of other nations than
upon t iose of our own. But, then, it
must be remembered that tho citizens
of otln r nations have no votes in the
comii' presidential election.
