Tm: politicians have alieady begun
work on Piesident-eleet MoKinley's
cabinet and niu iiguiing as zealously
as though they had actually been
asked to do the woik. It is said that
tho gold demoeiats think they ought
to havo a lepiosentativo in tho cabinet.
Some of t lii-in may really think so', but
thinking anil getting aro two very
different things, Mr. Ilryan can
testify if ho will. Mr. McKinlcy is a
very courteous gentleman, and ho
doubtless feels obliged to tho gold
democrats who voted for him; but he
is also a pail isan of paitisaus, and it
will bo a good guess to fa) that no
man will he a member of his cabinet
who is uot a lepublican. Even wero
lie disposed to havo a democrat in his
cabinet the cxpciicucc of IVrsidcut
Ilajes and Cleveland in going outside
of their parties for cabinet advisers
would piobably cause him to think
eomctimo before doing it.
The loss of the Senate is a very
serious blow to tho silver meu, not
only because it was entirely unexpect
ed and unprepared for, but because
it will destroy their last hopo of being
able to keep tho silver question before
tho pnblio dur'ng MeKinlc's adminis
tration. The silt er leaders had count
ed much mote confidently upon keep
ing their majority in thu Senate than
upon the election of Bryan, and had
planned to use that majority to prevent
any taiiff legislation during McKin
ley's administration, unless tho bill
passed should cary a silver amend
ment, just as they did at the last ses
sion of Congress. They still say that
they intend to keep up tho fight for
silver, but they do not say how. Uu
less there is a hitch in the present
programme the republicans will be
able to legislate as thoy please after
the 4th of March, regardless of the
silver mop. Should the legislation of
the next Congress, tariff or any other
sot t, fail to give the country the
promised relief from tho present un
satisfactory commercial and industrial
conditions tho silver question will
keep itself before the public, but
should general prosperity follow that
legislation it will bo difficult, if not
impossible, for any paitytomake a
national campaign with silver as tho
main issue. An overwhelming ma
jority of the voters have just declared
against silver, and about tho only
thing that would causo enough of
those voters to reverse themselves to
ro.erso tho lesult four years hence
will bo a falltue to derive the benefits
they expect to get through their de
feat of silver. Meanwhile, men who
voted for silver and who have not
changed their minds aro already ask
ing, what can possibly be gained by
keeping up tho agitation?
J. A. Fleming passed through here
Friday on his way ea9t. Mr. Fleming,
although a democrat, is highly elated
over the election of McKinley to tho
presidency, for the reason that it will
enable him to obtain the necessary
capital in tho east to carry out a num

The Work for the Year is Now
The HIE (Jlnss Taken to tlie City or
Mexico, Where further Observa
tions of Mars Will be Made,
Two yea: s ago Mr. Percival Lowell
of Boston, after searching throughout
tho west for a suitable place for tho
establishing of an observatory found
one testing tho "seeing" here that it
came moie neatly to pel feet conditions
than any other point, and the result
was the erection of the Lowell obser
vatory on the hill west of town.
Mr. Lowell's special study is the
phi net of Mars, and tho work accom
plished in Flagstaff in 1894 brought
the Lowell observatory into promi
nence throughout the world..
In Juno lust Mr. Lowell commenced
the work of putting up tho new tele
scope, with a twenty-four inch glass,
and on July 23d tho study of Mars
For work with tho now instrument
the staff of tho observatory has been
eonsideranly increased. Dr. T. J. J.
See of the University of Chicago, who
has done much woik mi tho reduction
of tho orbits of double stars, under
takes tho search for and measurement
of double stars in the southern heavens.
Ho is assisted by Mr. W. A. CogMiall
of Grand Rapids, Mich. Mr. D. A.
Drew was added to tho staff in the
depaitment of Mars. Many interest
ing reports os the observation of Mars
have been reported.
Mr. Lowell finds' things going on
upon tho plane' just as thoy did at the
same date Martian date two years
ago, or ono year ago, Martian time,
for tho length of tho planet's year is
nearly twice that of ours. Tho same
seasonal changes" aro taking place
and in the samn order. Tho "doubling
up" of some of the canals a remarka
blo phenomenon, first observed by
Schiaparelli himself, the discoverer
of the canals, and seen by Mr. Lowell
nnd oilier observers, taking place two
yeais ago in a regular and oiderly
way, which shows that, though thus
far wholly unaccountable, it has some
close relation with tho advancing
Our knowledge of Mars has been
very greatly extended in the last four
years. There can no longer be a reas
onable doubt that, while the planet
has water upon its surface, its water
supply is very small relatively to that
of the earth, and that tho greenish or
grayish spots seen upon it are not
bodies of water "seas" as has here
tofore been supposed to be the case,
but are the planet's lowlands, owing
their color, in part at least, to vegeta
tion. The existence of the canals"
long doubted, has been abundantly es
tablished by the observations made at
Arequipa, Flagstaff, Mount Hamilton
and elsewhere, and the more distinctly
they are seen the more mjstifyiug
they become. Mr. Lowell is fully con
vinced that they aro of an artificial
origin; and certainly, as they appear
in the drawings of them made by
those who have seen them best, they
aro quito inexplicable on any theory
of a natural origin. Can it be that
wo aro on tho point of having proof
positive that Mars is now iuhabitcd un
intelligent beings, as it is almost cer
tainly the scene of vegetable life and
doubtless of animal life of somo sort?
Our nearest approach to Mars this
year will be on December 4th six days
before tho dato of "opposition." Our
distauce will then be in round num
bers 60,000,000 miles, and it is for the
observation of tho planet at that date
that the now glass is taken to tho
City of Mexico. It is believed that
there will bo less cloudy weather -at
that date and that the planet will bo
in a more favjurablo position for study.
Mr. Lowell left Tuesday for the
City of Mexico, haYing In his charge
tho now glass, which will occupy a
Pullman Stateroom during the journey
to Mexico. Tho telescope and other
apparatus will be shipped next week.
It Is probable that the new telescope
will be roturncd here next year.

week from -i vlil to Arkansas.
Kears That Recent Excavations Have
Weakened tho Walls.
Editou Coconino Sun Dear sir:
On a recent trip to tho region of tho
Montezuma well and castle, I was
informed by a gentleman who lives in
that vicinity that the excavations made
this summer in the castle has greatly
weakened tho walls, and it is feared
the building will fall beforo a great
while if something is uot done. It
seemed to mo a pity that this fine old
ruin should be destroyed, and I said
so to my informant, and volunteered
to do what I could to havo it protect
ed. I havo written Drs. Merriam,
Fotvke.s and Fernow at Washington
in this behalf, and they have called
tho matter to the attention of the
chief of tho bureau of ethnology who
will do what ho cm for the preserva
tion of the building. The main
trouble seems to be, however, that no
money is allowed this bureau for put
ting tliesu ruins in repair and in safe
condition. I therefore write you this
letter and nk that you give It spice.
that any of our citizens who c in hoof
service may either devise some plan
for raising tho necessary funds, or
unite in asking an appropriation from
Congress for this purpose. While the
ruin is located in Arizona, the matter
of its preservation is le.illy ono of na
tional interest; and I believe a small
appropriation could bo secured, sufll
eient, however, for all needs.
It may not be out of place here for
mo to quote what Dr. Merriam said o f
this matter in his letter:
"So far as I know Montezuma Cas
tle is the largest, and in many respects
the finest cliff dwelling in tiic world,
and I should regard its desecration as
a national misfortune."
I havo taken the liberty to ask the
uso of your columns that our people
may know of this matter, feeling sure
of your interest and co-operation. I
have also written to-day to ascertain ,
if possible, what it would bo likely to
cost to put the ruin in repair. Very
truly yours, Frank C. Kkid.
