Don't throw away that insurance
policy just because a few rascals
have been found out. The policy
is just as good as it ever was and
probably better than it would have

The statisticians have discovered
that every five minutes a baby is

A clergyman who resigned his
pastorate to take up the practice
of law, assigned as one reason for

The result of elections of the

In the east a general revolt was

of dissatisfaction of the leaders.
In New York city Tammany had a
narrow escape, and in Maryland,

Some of our exchanges have
stated that the Coconi.no Sun has
become an advocate of joint state
hood, for Arizona and Jew Mex
ico. How anyone could have fal
len into such an error is beyond
comprehension. While the Sun
has not been an ardent advocate
of statehood, either joint, or
single, it has at all times opposed
jointure, an.! will to the end. At
the present time Arizona is not
ready for statehood, but is rapidly
approaching the time when she
can demand admission as a single
state, and it is largely the same
with New Mexico. Both terri
tories can well afford to await
that time rather, than be forced in
to joint statehood, a condition ob
noxious to the majority of the
people of both territories. What
Arizona is trying to do now is to
keep from becoming a state either
jointly or singly.
The president has a way of do
ing things that must be calculated
to well nigh take away the breath
of the red tape stickler at Wash
ington. Recently he authorized an
amendment to the civil service
rules providing that hereafter a
cabinet officer shall have power
summarily to remave, without 1.
hearing, any civil service employe
in his department who ha been
guilty of misconduct or who is in
efficient in the performance of his
duties. I Ieretotore unworthy em
ployes have been known to take
advantage of their Civil service
status to hold their jabs, and
have defied their superiors. This
ruling of the president will put a
stop to that sort of thin. Pos
