BISBEE HAS A WARH WELCOHE
FOR ELOQUENT VISITORS
SATURDAY was a notable day
among the Republicans of Bisbee.
They joined in a love feast and invited
the world to unite with them in their
felicity. In the afternoon they gath
ered at the denot and exploded "iant
powder by the box full to testify their
appreciation of the visit of Col. S. M.
McCowan and Henry M. Willis of
Phoenix. When the train came in
they shot off some more dynamite, for
an unexpected guest came, Col. J. A.
Zabriskie, of Tucson, one of the old
time Republicans of Arizona, an orator
of the highest ability, whose words
had been enjoyed by the people of Bis
bee on many an occasion past. Colonel
Zabriskie had been gathered in by
Messrs. McCowan and Willis in their
campaigning, and together the three
had visited the principal towns of south
eastern Arizona. The previous eyen
ing had been spent in Tombstone,
whore a large and appreciative audi
ence had been addressed. They told
of a pleasant trip, of eager listeners
and of n general spirit that assured a
large majority for the Republican can
didate for Delegato to Congress.
A DAYLIGHT MEETING.
The visitors were welcomed by Chair
man Campbell of the Republican Cen
tral Committee and a reception com
mittee of prominent Republicans. An
afternoon meeting had been arranged
for the benefit of the miners of the
night shift. From the porch of the li
brary building Messrs. JlcCowan and
Zabriskie spoke briefly upon the issues
of the campaign, and were given at
tentive hearing by a throng that well
filled the available standing room.
In the evening the Copper Queen
band led the way to the opera house
and contributed tunefully to the suc
cess of the meeting. A good and rep
resentative audience was faced by Dr.
J. G. Pritchard when he arose to as
sume the duties of chairman of the
NO ENCOURAGEMENT FOR REBELS
Col. McCowan, who was first intro
duced, is one of the most polished
speakers of the southwest. He put his
audience in good humor as a start, by
means of a story that was not only
funny, but had a point, as well, in the
political campaign. But ho was seri
ous enough when ho referred to Bryan
as a man who sent aid and encourage
ment to rebels in arms against the flag.
Comparing conditions as they were un
der Democratic rule and as they now
are after four years of Republicanism,
he said in part:
"Whj lly at danger like blind bats in
a rage? Why cling to a party whose
paramount issue is a whitened specter,
for imperialism is so vola of life that
its bones rattle like a shrunken skele
ton's tossed by summer winds. Why
forsake a party that keeps its promises,
that glorifies its republic, that brings
prosperity everywhere, for an aggrega
tion whose hhtory and record is sum
med up in four years of silenced in
dustries; four years of bankrupt hopes.;
of unrequited toil; of empty bankband
treasury; of commerce dead; of gold
sent all abroad; of conQdeuco hiding
and brooding in pitiful solitude; of
imperialistic armies of men with idle
hands and busy brains incubating the
germs of discontent and rebellion?
CREDIT TOR PROSPERITY.
"Now we are well off, why desire a
change? And why not give the admin
istration policies credit for bringing
about the improved stato of affairs?
Wo don't need to vote the democratic
tickot because wo were "bo'n that-a-way."
Suppose wo think our own
thoughts and make up our own minds,
and vote for our best interests and the
best interests of the community in
which wo live.
"I'd rather have one full dinner pail
than sixteen full poor houses. I'd
rather have a land full of trusts with
plenty of labor at good wages than a
land with no trusts and no work at any
price. I'd rather listen to the jlnglo of
sound dollars in the pockets of Ameri
can citizens than to the jinglo of tho
ohain on the legs of American tramps.
I'd rather see Americans froe and in
dependent, with mortgages cancoled,
with money in tho bank and with a
hallelujah chorus of joy forovor sing
ing in tho heart of the sweet Ameri
can wifo than to see 8,000,000 people In
the Philippines dwelling under the ar
bitrary rule of traitor Aguinaldo and a
half million of his tribe."
The speaker, in good-uatured vein,
spoke of Mark Smith. Concerning
the work of tho perpetual candidate,
he said that the answer to the question
"What has Mark Smith done in Con
gress?" should be that to the Irish
man's query: "Silence, and dom little of
that." Mr. McCowan remembered
only one thing Smith had done: He had
"done" Col. Wilson.
CONCERNING THOSE BONDS.
Henry M. Willis, a clearer young
attorney of Phoenix, a recent convert
to republicanism told how he had been a
democrat by heredity, but that ho had
beeun to think iu theyears of his man
hood and had begun to appreciate that
right today is with McKinley and his
followers. He made the clearest of ex
planations of the status of the Yavapai
bond issue and showed that whatever
was done had been done for the up
holding of the honor of the territory
and that the measures for the main
tenance of the public credit, now so
bitterly scored by Mark Smith were
equally the work of honest democrats
and republicans. The legalizing bill
was signed by a democratic president,
Grover Cleveland. He exposed the
falsity of the claims made here on the
stump that the territory must pay the
Yavapai bonds and interest. The de
cisions of the courts of Arizona, com
mandingHhe supervisors of Yavapai
county to tax the county for the in
terest on the bonds have been appeal
ed from to the Supreme Court of the
United States. That tribunal will
clinch the judgment in short order, and
then Yavapai county will be compel
led to pay all back and accruing in
terest into the general fund of the
territory . One of Mr. Willis' best ap
plauded hits was when he affirmed "I
would rather be caHed a bolter than
to be toasted as a friend of a Philipino
DEMOCRATS YEARN FOR-AN ISSUE.
Col. Zabriskie made the concluding
address. His talk was wholly extem
poraneous and was enjoyable through
out. He laid a weighty hand on Mark
Smith's never-ending pretensions, for
no one in Arizona knows Mark Smith
better. Following up the remarks of
the other speakers on the same subject,
ho showed how statehood was to be se
cured only through the Republican
party, and the futility of trying to at
tain the end by Democratic instru
ments. One feature of his address set
his Democratic auditors to thinking.
Ho showed that the Republican party
of today is the real successor to the
party of Jefferson and that Jefferson
called himself a "republican" and noth
ing else. The first Democratic party
made its appearance in the days of An
drew Jackson and not before. Since
the civil war, the Democratio party has
been remarkable chiefly because of its
frantic efforts to find an issue. It has
picked up and tried a dozen, only to
reject them at last. The party has
dropped free silver as its leading tenet
and is now reduced to the un-American
and unhappy expedient of opposing the
The speakers left on the morning
train yesterday, Col. Zabriskie for
Tucson and Messrs, McCowan and Wil
lis for Phoenix. Col. McCowan will
spend only a couple of days at home,
going thence to work in the ' northern
part of the territory.
Did you note that the Democrats have
conceded Yavapai county to Oakes
Murphy by a majority of 300? Does
that look as though Yavapai county
found mucli fault with tho governor in
connection with the bonds that Mark
Smith weeps ovor? If Murphy had
behaved basely toward the county, as
Mark Smith claims, don't yon think
that tho Yavapai voters would Bnow
him under? If the Yavapai voters nrs
satisfied with the transaction, do you
think Mark Smith has any call to snlf
flo ovor It? And, further, looking at
the concession of 300 majority by the
Democrats, doesn't that really mean
they aro afraid ho is going to carry the
county by at least twico that number?
Look ovor the republican tickot in
tho corner of this page. Scan it from
McKinloy to Oliver. Good tickot, isn't
it? Not a bad name on the list.

Gov. Murphy and the Pima County
Narrow Gauge Bonds.
The following statement of iacts is
issued by tho Pima county Democratic
Central Committee in order to lay be
fore tho people what the reqords show
regarding the connection of Governor
Murphy with the attempt to fund the
Pima county narrow gauge bonds.
It will bo seen that he was THE DEL
EGATE from ARIZONA when tho fund
lug bill was passed which validated
theso bonds, and in his public speeches
he admits that, ho agisted in passing it.
It will also bo soon that when the
Arizona legislature repealed tho Loan
Commission in order that these fraudu
lent bonds might not bo funded, GOV
ERNOR Murphy opposed the will
OP THE PEOPLE, ENDEAVORED TO NUL-
Ul-YTHE MEASURE AND VETOED THE
STATEMENT OP FACTS.
Tho Arizona Narrow Gaugo Railroad
was incorporated on November 21, 1882,
to be built from Tucson to Globe, Ari
zona. , The supervisors of Pima county wero
directed by the Arizona legislature on
Fobruary 21, 1883, to issue bonds to pto
mote tho construction of this railroad.
(See Act No. 33, p. Gl, Twelth Legisla
tive Assembly of Arizona.)
Bonds to the amount of $lf0,000 wore
issued by Pima county and in somo way
got into the possession of the railroad
THE ROAD WAS NEVER OPERATED
OR BUILT, and Pima County did not get
one dollar's benefit from it.
' ALL THE BONDS WERE" DECLARED
void by the Supreme court of the
United States ou October 29, 1894. (See
case of Lewis vs. Pima County, 155 U.
The funding bill of June 0, 1890, was
passed by congress WHEN N. O. MUR
PHY WAS THE DELEGATE FROM ARI
ZONA. (See 29 U. S. Statue, 262.)
Under this funding bill the Supreme
Court of the United States held on
January 3, 1899, that the bonds had
been LEGALIZED and that it was the
duty of the Loan Commissioners of
Arizona to fund the bonds. (Hee the
case of Utter et al. vs, Franklin et al.,
172 IT. S., 416.)
Thereupon the Arizona legislature
in March, 1899, adopted a memorial re
garding theso bonds, reciting among
other things that:
"Whereas, The said Arizona Narrow
Gauge railroad was never built and
never existed, and Pima count; has
never received any consideration what
ever for the said so-called bonds, and
the entire scheme of the said bond is
sue was a fraud without any element of
merit or good faith; and
Whereas, It was by all of the mem
bers of the legislature passing said
memorial (of the Eighteenth Legisla
tive Assembly), and by the governor of
Arizona at the time, and by the then
delegate in congress from Arizona, be
lieved that all said bonds so issued by
Pima county to the Arizona Narrow
Gauge railroad were res adjudicata by
the said decision of the Supremo Court
of the United States, and that none oi
the Baid bonds could be thereafter vali
"Whereas, Said memorial was in
tended to apply only to certain railwaj
bonds of two other counties in Arizona
where the aided railways were actually
constructed, and not to the said bonds
so issued by Pima county, as to which
none of the statements or reasons in
said memorial applied, and which bonds
were then, as now, believed to be with
out consideration, unjust, fraudulent
"Therefore, We most strongly urge
upon the Senate and Houso of Repre
sentatives of tho United States of
America to pass such legislation as will
exclude from the provisions of the act
of congress of June 0, 1890, and horn
any and all other legislation by con
gress, the said bonds so issued by Pima
county to the Arizona Narrow Gauge
Railroad company, so that neither said
act of June 0, 1896, or any other act,
will be construed so as to validate the
said bonds issued by Pima county."
(See House Memorial No. 1, Twenti
eth Legislative Assembly of Arizona,
pp. 89-90. )
In order to prevent the funding of
these bonds the same Assembly passed
Act No. 32, "To Abolish tho Loan Cora
mission and to Repeal Sundry Laws re
(See Acts Twentieth Legislative As
sembly, p. 39.)
Governor Murphy vetoed this
the legislature on march 13,
1899, passed the bill over his veto.
(See Act No. 32, above mentioned.)
The amount of principal and accrued
interest elaimed as now due on these
fraudulent boqds IS OVER $281,000.
If theso bonds are funded into 60
year bonds THE PEOPLti OP PIMA AND
SANTA CRUZ COUNTIES will have to
pay over 814,000 of Interest each year
for over fifty years, when the principal
will be due A total op over $981,000.
ISN'T IT A CORKER?
A copy of the above statement, care
fully prepared by Rochester Ford, Esq.,
one of tho attorneys representing Pima
county in the case, and consequently
perfectly familiar with every detail,
has been put in the hands of every
voter in Pima and Santa Cruz counties.
Mr. Ford vouches for the absolute
truth of each item in the statement.
If ever Governor Murphy gets throngh
explaining and apologizing for the
Yavapai bonds, tho Pima bonds will
keep him busy for a while.
What did Oakes Murphy do for Ariz
ona when he was in Congress?
A Corporation With a Soul.
We wish to rebuke certain democrats
in some parts of the county who state
that the Copper Queen. Consolidated
Mining company is owned and officered
by men who use their positions to influ
ence the employees to support republi
can nominees. This Is positively un
true. To begin with, the owners and
principal officers of this company are
not republicans. Several of the local
officers are republicans, as they have
an undeniable right to be. But no
officer of the company is expected 'to,
or does try to influence any employe
as to how he shall vote. No man's po
sition is in the slightest manner en
dangered by his. voting or using his in
fluence for any candidate or party that
ho choses to. On the contrary, the
company desire that every employe
shall exercise his right is an American
citizen, and in using it, be dictated
only by his own mind and conscience.
Ed Land is gaining ground every day.
The voters are comparl g his record in
office with that of Vis opponent and
each conscientious comparison tends
to-make a vote; '.and. Especially dur
ing the latte. - part of his term, did he
do splended work for the county. Much
is made of the fact that the board of
supervisors employed some assistance
for him during some of the business
terms of court. Less than $1,000
have been paid in all for such assist
ance and the work of the office has
boen over three times the amount
which has been done iu any other term
of recent years. Even so skillful an
attorney as tho Hon. Allen R. English
is universally acknowledged to be,
found it necessary to expend a larger
sum for assistance when in the 6ame
office. Many cases require more than
one attorney to successfully arrange
and manage the various important
matters in connection with them. The
Cobre Grande case, at present being
tried in Phoenix, has employed nearly
all the most prominent attorneys in the
territory, und yet this is not considered
to be a reflection on the ability of any
one of them. Just imagine George
Washington Swayrie trying the Pag
case or the Halderman case without
What They Think of Oakes Mur
phy at Home in Prescott.
The Arizona Republican insists that
Mark Smith did nothing in congress.
How happy we would all be if Delegate
Murphy had done the same thing. Let
us look into this old bogus campaign
cry of Murphy and statehood. With
a republican house, a republican senate
and a republican president, Mark got
his statehood bill through the bouse.
With a republican house and a republi
can senate, Murphy did not get hit
statehood bill through the house. But
we all remember with deep sorrow
what he did get through. Prescott.
A fow more republican meetings like
that of last Saturday night and this
town will have very few republicans
left. It is certain that many votes
were turned to Mark Smith by what
was said, the way it was said and by
what was left unsaid.
The Arizona Republican will prob
ably suppress its standing inquiry,
"What has Mark Smith done for
Arizona?" The entire Democratic
press of the territory is devoting
column after column to answering the
question and is showing that few full
11 edged senators have accomplished
more for their states than Mark,, as a
delegate with no vote, has accomplish
ed for this territory. Most of the
articles end up by asking "What did
Oakes Murphy do for Arizona when he
was in Congress?" That question re
mains unanswered except by .unpleas
ant references to bonds.
The envelope of the Young Men'i
Democratic Club of Bisbee is a good
campaign document itself. On the
buck of each one in attractive lettering
is printed the following:
Republican votes In Congress have
defeated every bill introduced for giv
ing Statehood to Arizona.
