Washington. March 13. The Sen.
ale has t Ills week, in thu language of
the showmen, heen playing'tn standing
loom only. The phi) might have heen
called "The Unban Bluff; oEplain-
ing After the Act." It is rather" "diffj-Ji
cult, to sav which of the senators took I
the star pait, or whether the play was
tragedy, comedy or faice, but inns-
much as it at limes had trace" of all
three it should probably bo classed as"
melodrama. The plot of the phi runs
snmelhlng like this: The legislative
branch of Uncle Sam's household beiujr
of the opinion thai old Lad) Spain is
cruelly misli eating Cuba, her orphan
protege, declares that Miss Cuba i
old enough to light back and that htT
jiglll to do so .should be recognized li)
Uncle Sain, and mni cover that he
.should ask old Lad) Spain to grant the
orphan her freedom. While the co
ordinate branches (If the legislative
branch are dctcimiuiiig just how this
declaration is to be winded, IhoSpanish
minister, who pln)s the heavy villain,
lushes to the middle of the stage and
charges thlee senators vvilh having
made misstatements, and Senator Hale
conies forward as his leading suppoit.
The pin should have called for the
heavy villain to gel the g. b. in this
act, from the Executive, but he didn't
act it, the Executive having concluded
to make Ins a thinking pal t only. Then
Senator Hoar got the cue and jumped
all over the foreign relations com
mittee, tho Cubans and things gener
ally, until Senator Morgan rattled his
svvoid and gave him a turn or two,
and Senator Chandler gae him a little
comedy business about making llesh of
the Armenians and lish of the Cubans.
Other senators said their say between
times, all of which was a gieal free
show for the galleries, even if theie
was no logical ending to. Ilul why it
took place is more than any one can
say. Tho lime for debate on these
resolutions were adopted b the Senate.
It was an absolute waste of time to
defer action on the repot t of the for
eign relations committee when it was
well known that its lepoil had been
practically agreed to when the Senate
adopted the resolutions.
Senator Teller is entitled to the
credit of Inning made the most com-mnu-scusu
summing up of the diplo
matic "break" made by tho Spanish
minister, in publishing a criticism of
statements made b senators during
a lime of unusual excitement on the
lloor of the senate, caused by Senator
Halo having having had the Spanish
minister's criticism lean by the cleiK
of the Senate as a part of his remarks
against tho Cuban resolutions. Mr.
Teller said: "Twice in the hislorv of
this country have wo sent home thu
ministers of a gieal country, one of
Fiance and one of Gloat Britain, for a
vcrv much less olleuse than ihe one the
Spanish minister has been guilt of.
tor fear that some one will sa that 1
am criticising the Administration for
mil sending him home, I waul lo sa)
llial under the eiieumsluuces, consul
cling the friction that has aiiscu ,'u
Snaiu. if 1 had been the iirosidoiil cf
(it the United Slates, I .should nolhave
sent him home, but I should have sug
gested very kindl) to him, thioughtle
seciclnr) of state, that a repetition jf
tiiat conduct would necessitate his
leaving (lie count r)."
The subsidy which has been provided
for special mail facilities between Bos
tou and New Oilcans, via New York,
Washiugiou and Allauta, in evei) !
piopiiatlou bill since 1873, was kept
iu the piesent bill by the House ly a
vote ot 116 lo 93. This appropriation
is this )ear $1UG,000. It has moiu
than once been asserted iu Congress
that this subsidy was given to the rail
loads without gelling mi) thing in the
way of mail facilities thai would mil
be had without it, and three post
master-generals have condemned it; I
but Congress had believed il lu be ,
right ami proper, anil lias stood by it
all these years.
A sub-committee of the. Senate, com
mittee iin territories has unanimously
reported to tlio full committee In favor
of the Gal ion bill for the
admission -of New Mexico to state
hood, and its friends think a majority
of the committee will agree to its being
favorably reported to the Senate. Hut
even if reported and passed, President
Cleveland's recent remarks about the
Teiritories and new States indicate
that it would be vetoed.
Senator K)le, chairman of the com
mittee to establish the University of the
United States, has favorably reported
Hie bill providing for the establishment
if a national university at Washington,
to be nn-soctarian and non-partisan,
and to be open to all competent to take
its instruction. The bill carries a
preliminary appropriation of $15,000.
jThu ,).., t)t :l ,miiM;,i university was
iifl)t .lvunced b George Washington,
and it has been more or less talkeM
"about ever since, and bills for the pur
pose have been before many con
gresses. 1'liu anti-option bill, which created
such ahubbubaiid came so near getting
through the last Congress, will be ad
versely reported upon by thu House
committee on .igi iculture, and thai
will be the last of thu measiue until a
new Congress comes iu.

Senator Dubois of Idaho has intro
duced in the Senate a substitute for
the bill leccntly vetoed by the presi
dent, and which was so objectionable
lo the people of this Tell itory. The
Dubois bill pioteets thu limber and
provides that lint one section can be
lie leased Id any one individual or cu im
putation, and it is believed thai the bill
will cover most of the objections lieie
tofme olleicd. The bill is as follows:
That thu lauds reserved for univer
sity purposes, and all of the school
Mud tin the 'ferritin)- of Aiiziuia re
served by law for school purposes, inaj
be leased under such laws and regula
tions as may be hereafter prescribed
by the legislature of said Territory,

and superintendent of public instruc
tion shall constitute a board for the
leasing of said lands under the rules
and regulations heretofore prescribed

lespuctivo purposes for which the said
reservations were made, except that

A PREHISTORIC MUMMY,
Prospectors Mulct- Some Intcrestlm:
Monday a party of prospectors on
their way from Phoenix to Maligns,
Colorado, slopped in town for a few
hours. On their way hero they spent
x week at Montezuma Wells and at(.
Montezuma's Castle, on Beaver creek.
At the latter place there are a largo
number of prehistoric clilT dwellings,
which tlio party investigated. They
found the former burying ground of
the extinct race aud unearthed tweuty
skeletons. Thoy were fortunate enough
to find one mtimmilied body, the lirst
one, it is believed, that has been found,
aud they propose to take the milium)
10 Deliver, where they expect to sell it
Dr. D. J. Brnnncu was given an op
portunity to examine tho mummy aud
desciibesit as being a Hue specimen
and well preserved. The mummy is
that of an adult male and of a pigmy
race. It measured threu and one-half
feel iu length. Of the skeletons found
by the party none of tlieni exceeded
that height, which seems to have been
the greatest stature obtained by the
unknown race of people iliat once in
habited all this portion of Arizona.
It is unfortunate that the mummy
could not be pun-hascd from the trav
eler's, as it should be in tlio possession
of some one of our historical societies,
aud should remain in the Teiritor),
instead of some Eastern museum.
Tho SI K. round l'nrty.
Some people aro unfortunate as to
birthday auniversaiies, being over
shadowed by some gi eater one,
who iu passing this way before them
has iu a maimer pro empled the day.
This is true of the pastor of the M. E.
church, who is so unfortunate as to
conic iu conflict with at. L'atrick him
self. But the Flagstaff Methodists and
their hosts of friends aro equal to any
occasion, and even in tho midst of the
festivities of St. Patrick's Day, ar
ranged their forces silently and came
iu full strength upon the parsonage,
completely surpiising tho garrison aud
taking '.he fort.
Tho preacher and family were
pounded" unmercifully. Gold, silver
aud greenbacks, ornameuled by green
ribbons, wero used as offensive weapons
iu the skirmish. Co-lee, tea', sugar,
butter, flour, beef, pork, fruit, dry
and greeu, tlio resources of the town,
in short, wero drawn upon, and a sum
ming up reveals tho fact of a beautiful
parity between the number of binhd.i)
anniversaries of thu preacher and the
dollars representing the value of the
donation. Thu words of Sciipture,
"The lines have fallen to us in pleasant
places; )ea, wo have a goodly heri
tage," expresses our feelings. May
the God of all grace bless ) on all abun
dantly. Please accept tho hearty
thanks of Mr. aud Mrs. B. M. Dauford

M. F. Shaw, warden of tho Yuma
penitentiary, has been appointed super
intendent, vice Thomas Gates, de
ceased. Fred Pranty, living on tlio Upper
Salt River, was brought into tho city

biles from a polecat. He was bitten
twice on the leg and onco on the hand
by iho poisonous animal Herald.
Thomas Gales, superintendent of tho
territorial prison at Yuma, committed
.suicide last Friday morning by shoot
ing himself through tho head. Ho was
talking with Dr. Cotter, tho prison
ph)ieian, at 10 o'clock, after which
lie went to his room aud was not soon
again alive. A half hour later a pistol
shot was heard. The door was o"cued
and kneeling by tho bedside, with his
elbow on tiio bed and his baud beneath
his chin, was the .superintendent, dead.
He had for some weeks been ailing and
it is thought the paiu, assisted by
mental worry about tho safety of pris
oners, temporarily dethroned his rea
son. Tho remains were scut to Los
Angeles for interment.
A Ticket Xouilunted,
A double-headed citizens1 meeting
was held iu Babbitt's Hall on Friday
night to nominate two tickets forcouu
cilmen. Tlio meeting nominated E. S.
Gosney chairman and Harry Hibben
Two tickets were nominated, oue to
be called tho Citizens' and tho other
tho People's ticket.
Tho Citizens' ticket is as follows: J.
C. Glim, J. A. Vail. J. W. Francis, C.
A. Keller, C. A. Greenlaw.
The People's ticket contained tho
following uames: D. Babbitt, J. R.
Treat, George Hoxwortli, A. T. Cor
nish, C. A. Bush.
The Citizens-People's convention did
not consider it wise to make nomina
tions for tho balance of tho offices, and
the nine candidates for marshal, tho
three candidates for town clerk and tho
four candidates for supervisor of streets
will make a sort of free-for-all Arkansas
st)le of race for llieso offices.
Messrs. A. T. Cornish and C. A.
Bush have withdrawn their uames
irom tho People's ticket, and tho va
cant places have not yet been filled.

Thero is considerable interest in tho

Thero are about sixty men at work
i.long tho river in what aro known ai
Iho lower placers, and all seem satisfied
with their work. The Winsiow parties
who have a largo number of claims on
ihe San Juan, aud who havo expended
a good deal of money iu tho way of
experiments in saving the g.Id, aro
now satisfied lhat tho gold can bo
profitably saved. A San Fraucisoo
party is making arrangements to put

Northern Arizona ought to lie taking
some slops to catch ihe summer outers,
who seek ihe lirst opportunity to find
cool retreats. Northern Aiizoua has
many attractive. localities and much to
offer in this line, but tho fact of tbo
people not taking suflleieut interest in
diverting the Havel iu their direction
Is a mystery which we are uuable to
solve. Our people will come if youask
them. Why not make the effort?
