Thkiuc is no m'ore popular man in tho
southwestern nart of the territory, and
deservedly so, than A. Wontworth,
treasuror of this county nnd candidate
for reelection. Wontworth camo from
the State of Mnintfto Arizona in early
days, and was for several years in tho
employ of tho railroads running inio
Fairbanks. Uisexaut business methods
and trustworthiness made him a favor
ito with his employers and patrons,
whiU'hiB genial manner and his kind
and obligingco-oporation made him bo
loved of hia'fellow workmen. Every
railroad nun is Wontworth 'a friend.

having been previously nssigncd as a

ent over tho death of a girl in the cast
for whom ho had formed a passionate

Itime he ran a cigar store, closing up

times. Ho was also a sufferer from

A gold-bug county platform can't

Tho manner of tho democratic and
republican partiea of Cochiso in dealing
with the county division question is
characteristic of their different meth
ods. The democrats, while conceding that
the divisionists are perfectly honest and
.have many good reasons for wishing to
create ii newjebunty andbelieving-that
as soon as wealth and population have
sufficiently increased, such n step will
be for tho benefit of all concerned, still
maintains that the time for county di
vision haB not yet arrived.
Tho democratic platform declares
squarely against the division of any
county by act ot the territorial legisla
ture. Tho nominees for tho legislature
were pledged in convention against tho
measure before receiving their nomina
tions. Lieut. Wilcox is in perfect accord
with tho democratic platform. Henry
Etz is in tho rnmo position. Captain
Tevis was tho man who, in the Sixteenth
legislature detailed tho bill introduced
io divido Couhiso' county, and Col. Miko
Uray was the man instrumental in de
feating tho passage of n like bill in tho
Seventeenth legislature. Thus in their
platform, and in tho pledges and tried
records of their nominees for the legis
lature, the democrats stand openly and
honestly against tho division of our
couuty at present.
The Mark Ilanna methods of the re
publicans aro in direct contrast. Their
platform wholly ignores this impor
tant question. In their convention no
word was allowed to bo tpoken on tho
subject. . But they chose all their legis
tivo candidates from Bisbee and Tomb
stone. Thoy say to tho countv diviH
ionists: "Tho democrats aro against
you. Our platform does not oppose
you." To the anti-divisionists they say
probably truly "our men nro all se
lected from tho south and are, of course,
dead against division."

Tub Brodie crowd was at Flagstaff
Saturday evening. -It'Consisted of Col.

of the gold-bug Arizona Republican.
The meeting waB fairly well attended.
A draped picture of the Into Captain
O'Neill was used for political eiTect,nnd'
a mockery it was, as O'Neill put his
best' efforts in Arizona denouncing the
Murphy gang, and thoy wore bitter as
could be against the honest champion
cf the people, which O'Neill was. Col.
Brodie talked about the war, and seeined
very much ashamed of tho company in
which he, found himself; in fact, it is
stated that lie could not stand it nil, and
told Okes.lhat.he must go homo'. After
tlio.golditb Yneoting dispersed, the town
caught firo and the entire block west of
the Bank hotel burned down. Tho peo
ple considered tho outfit n hoodoo of the
most iinfortuaato vintage. After the
lire, Babbitt's storo was bu-glarized.
This happened before Murphy left. As
this crowd will be here in a few days,
people will do well to bo on their guard.
Thank you for the warning. Bisbee

It is rediculous to listed to the gold
bug republican dilating ujton protection,
and depreciating tie 1 tct of the democ
racy endeavoring to destroy the terri
tory's prosperity by the advocacy of free
silver. These statesmen will dilate for
hours over the advisability of protect
ing some nail factory or toothpick man
ufacturer iu Connecticut and shed tears
because of a possible defeat of such
schemes, and become mad at their
neighbors who demand that Arizona's
great production silver shall sharo in
such beneficence. An individual or
party that will strike a blow at the bed
rock of his country's progress and devel
opment, and aid in the upbuilding of a
state throe thousand tnilesway, is unfit
to Ifoldn public ortice in tho section ho
maligns. We think a man has more

REPUBLICAN COUNTY PLATFORM
We endorse the platform adopted at
the Republican National Convention,
held in St. Louie; Juno 1896; the plat
form on which was elected our illustri
ous president, William McKinley. We
heartily approve of tho manner in which
the president conducted tho late war
with Spain; that as a statesman, he has
no superior, and but few equals, is our
unanimous conviction. We rejoicothat
our unlimited resources, together with
the skill, the loyalty and tho bravory of
our army and navy, achieved a glorious
victory in our war with Spain, and de
monstrated that tho United Statso is,
and must be recognized as ono of the
foremost powers among tho nations of
tho earth .
We tinqulifiedly endorse the platform.
adopted by our Territorial Republican
Convention in Prescott on tho 20th of
September last, believing it to be a plat
form on which nny one, who hns the
wclfaro of our territory at heart, may
feel proud to stand upon.
To appeciate tho honor dne follow citi
zens who havo fought and bird under
the flag of.our eountry is characteristic
of republican i3tn; and we being repub
licans nio proud that our party has
nomiunted lor delegate to congress a
hero of tho Iato war, Col A. O. Brodie.
In county affairs, we favor nn eco
nomic administration . Wo believe that
every effort should bo mado to reduce
the presont rnto of taxation. In order
to accomplish this wo Bhould elect our
officers fioin among tho most responsi
ble and reliable representatives of our
mining, agricultural and tto;k raisin?
