Rush For Federal Patronage
Becomes Almost General
Among Democrats There.
THREE BIG JOBS
IN GREAT DEMAND
(Br G forge H. Clements.)
Phoenix. Ariz, Not. 11. The amount

i nions the Democrats of Arizona
v hen the party comes to its olrs after
March 4 next, is scandalous to con
template and it is not to be wondered
'iif-rc has been an unseemly rush for
the 'pie counter" The salaries of the
t. deral officers alone amount to about
$4 ..000, and besides the salaried of
; ices, there are any 'number of good
f e offices to be filled. The . alaried
rfices and the salaries attached there
t .is follows

Isrk of federal court, per year. 3,500

Three office deputies, $1,200 each 3,000
Fee Positions Also Desirable.
Besides the foregoing, there are the
postmasters at Phoenix, Prescott
iima, Tucson, Blsbee, Douglas, Clif
ton, Morenci, afford and Globe, all
of which are of the first class, and
cry desirable from the standpoint of
ompensation. And that does not com
plete the list. There will be a regis

the land office, a collector of lnter
ral revenue, who covers Arizona and
New Mexico, but who may be selected
fiom Arizona, a collector of the port
of Nogales several deputy collectors,
1 4 United States commissioners, in
bankruptcy, one for each county in
tne state, and some 20 or more United
states commissioners. All of these
are fee offices and pay from $1,000 to
The Three Bis Jobs.
The three big- jobs are the federal
judgeship, the district attorneyship
and the marshalship and these are the
jolts for which the rush is being made.
The Republicans say that so far as
the federal judgeship Is concerned,
there is no need for haste on the part
of the Democrats, as they have every
reason to believe that judge Richard
E Sloan, the present incumbent, will
e confirmed bv tb mresent Unite
ember, in spite of the opposition
the senators from Arizona. However,
that may be the Democrats are lining
up for it just as though Sloan were
already eliminated and the way dear
for the appointment by Mr. Wilson of
tne of the party workers.
While Eneene S Ives mav Tiofc fteJ
that he can sacrifice his great law"
practice to accept a ,000 a year
judgeship there seems to be no doubt
that he will have such influence at
the white house after March 4 next.
that the new president will be guided
very largely in the matter of making
appointments by wljat Mr. Ives says.
That being the case, it will behoove
all Democrats suffering with office
-ekers itch to consult Dr. Ives. Thus
far the man most talked of for the
place is Reese M. Ling, who lives and
practices law in Phoenix, but who calls
Prescott home. Whether he has asked
Mr Ives if he can be a candidate for
the place is not known.
Many Seek Marshalshlps.
While the federal judgeship is open
to members of the legal fraternity
nlv the race for the United States
Ttiarshalship is open to every Demo
crat in the state and seemingly every
Democrat is after the appointment.
mong those who have "thrown their
hats in the ring" and who are con--'dered
eligible are W. T. Webb, ot
Graham. Edward Shaw, of Maricopa;
A W. Forbes, of Pima; Bmanuel
Drachman, also of Pima; Ben Craw

court of Greenlee county, and Joseph

clerk of the supreme court of the

senator Mark Smith; Ben Crawford is
"said to be Smith's second choice, and
Dillon is said to be the choice of sen
ator Ashurst. With the senators not
of one mind in the matter, it would
not be strange, it is thought, if Ives
man should pick the plum.
Just why there is such a hurry to
line up for the marshalship tat not
understood, particularly in view of
the fact that marshal Overlock has
served but nine months of a four

custom to permit all presidential ap

curred Orozco's displeasure by taking
Emlllo Vasquez Gomez from Kan An

The manifesto is dated Psebla, the
day after the capture of Gen. Felix
Dias. The newspapers of Mexico City
have refrained from mentioning the
manifesto, and it is not believed Gen.
Trevino is interested.
A revolutionary document obtained
by the police from Zapatista prisoners
reveals the intention of the Zapata
brothers and the leading insurrec
tionary chiefs, whose names are signed,
to imitate the French revolution. Prom
ises are made to the insurgent army,
to which the document is addressed,

The defeat administered by Gen.
Blanquet at Cuernavaca appears to

Reports are current of a new plot, a

The government has been unable to

that he has no following worth men
