(rnoM our heoular conuieroKDEXT.I
Washington, May 29 For a lime
Iliis "week it "looked an though the
silversenatnrs would eueceed in putting
tbe Senate on record in favor of giving
the Treasury $ 26,000.000 a j ear addi
tional "revenue by putting an addi
tional tax of 75 cents a tiariel on beer,
and if die had all been in their seats
the, end of the attempt might have
been different. When Senator Dubois
offered the beer tax amendment to the
tilled chreso bill Senator Sheimau
moved to la it on the table, and the
motion was defeated by a vote of SO
to 25. Tlie expiration of the "morn
ing linui" prevented Senator Dubois
following up his advantage, and the
next da I lit- Senate voted down the
amendment. 34 to 27. There was
Mime odd voting in this business. For
instance. Senator Haubrnugh voted
against tabling the amendment one
day, and ihe next d.iy voted ag.iiust
the amendment ii.-elf; Senator Vest
stated after be had voted for the
amendment that if it had pasied he
would lmvo voted against the amended
bill as a whole, aud Senator Faulkner
voted against tabling tint amendment
and then ngainsl the amendment. Tim
indiralct, to a tei tainty that (bid ses
sion of Cougiess will not provide for
an additional icveuue for the govern
ment. The Senate will pass Mr. Butler's
bill prohibiting 1 ho fittther issue of
bonds without the eon-rut of Con
gress, but it will not be allowed to
eonie. up iu the House at this session.
It is only Ik cause it is known that it
has 110 show in the House that its op
ponents have nut tried to talk it to
death in the Senate.
Patty lines wero not drawu in the
vote by which the House passed a bill
lepealing that clause of the pieseut
taiifflaw which provides for the ad
mission fiee ot duly of foreign alcohol
which is to be used in the arts or
manufactures. One bundled and four
Republicans, 5G Democtats and 6 Popu
lists voted for the repeal bill, aud 60
Republicans aud 9 Democrats against
it. Owing to defects in the clause it
had never been enforced, and claims
were simply being piled up against tlio
Treasury for rebate of duty paid on
alcohol. Secretary C.n lisle asked for
repeal, and his lequest was endorsed
by ilia Hottso Ways aud Means eom
mittec. Whether the bill will get
through (he Senate is (ct a question,
although it has been given a place on
the programme prepaied b the steer
The silver Democrats are fully de
termined, they say, that they shall not
be kept nut of the "control of the Chi
cago convention by any manipulation
b the National Committee, of the con
tested delegations, and notice to that
effect has been served upon Chairman
Hariity of that committee, who is now
in Washington. Mr. Hariity denies
I hat his committee has any intention
of trying to use itsaiithoiiiy in making
llp'the tem)rarv roll of the conven
tion to keep, silver delegates out of
their seats, hut thesiher men do not
eniirely accept his denial, and say
thai they are going to take steps which
winch will stop any such scheme as
Unit, even If every silver "delegate has
fo-stay out i.f the conveution to do it.
This questiou is arousing tlie greatest
interest among tbe politicians of all
parties in Washington, and doubtless
as much elsewhere. It Is generally
believed that tW'silver'meti will have
II majority of -that ciiiiveiitTnii, but
theijj is much' doubt as to whether that
majority will pxctiisq Its power by
Mio,ndoptlon of hu oitt-ud "out 'free
"coinage platform, and 'more that a
hilver man will head thetirket nomi
nated., A majority can make the plat
form, but unless the i-ojd rulo is

The decision 0f4beSupreme.CourL
that the lujjpr bounty money which
was held up by Controller Bowler
should bn paid would hare been much
morn sal isfaclory if it had settled for
once and all tho question of tbe con
stitutionality of tbe sugar bounty. It
merely decided that tho ranuey appro-
pi i.tted by Congress must be paid,
which will put- about (5,250,000 in
circulation, and lett the more impor
tant question still open to dispute. It
seems, however, to have put an cud to
the absurd idea that a uiiuor Treasury
official has more authority than Con
gi ess and the President, aud for that
reason has been thankfully received by
many who will not get an' of tbe
sugar bounty money.
A service pension bill giving every
man who served ninety days 3 n
month aud one cent a mouth addi
tional for each day served in excess of
ninety has been favorably reported to
ihe House. It will uot be acted upon
at this session. It is estimated that it
w ill cost between $25,000,000 aud $30,-
000,000 a year to carry out ibis bill.

It is often contended that advertis

fail to soo immediate results from
money they expend in advertising,

that It wasouly money wasted, that

let tho slightestcrror occur in a paper
and how quickly it is jumped onto.
Even the most trivial matter, that per
haps in the hurry of goiug to press
the printer would uot stop to correct,
is adversely criticized. Aud there are
a thousand aud oue other thiugs that
go to prove that a good local paper is
uot only attentively read, but is care
fully scanned by the I13 percritteal to
see w hat flaws they cau detect, so that
they may have a chance of heaping
coals of lii on the devoted and some
times bald head of the .editor. And
this is uot always done from a scrip
tural or philanthropic point of view;
but it would be perhaps as well not to
attempt to examine too closely Into
the motives for human actions; that is
a wide field outside the range of the
But what is true of individual is
none the less true of a community.
Here we have a climate that is unex
celled in any part of the habitable
world, natural resources that are
illimitable, see'uory that forgtandeur

where, natural wonders that have
puzzled aud confounded tho scientific
mind, prehistoric relics that should
make Flagstaff the Mecca of anti
quarians, aud over and above all, the
Grand Canyon of tho Colorado, trans-
ceuding iu beauty, magniHcence aud
grandeur anything theeje of mortal
man over beheld, aud yet for all the
interest that is taken in these matters
by about four-fifths of our population
Flagstaff might remain a terra incog
nita to the rest of the world. People
are too apt to say: "Oh, it is none of
my business; let those go iu for ad
vertising our resources that have a
gift that waj" Yet those are tbe
veiy people who aro the first to
scramble for tho cherries that are
shaken pff the tree by others.
