CONDUCTED BY THE COUNTY CENTRAL COMMITTEE
Republican Nominees in
ARE WARMLY WELCOMED
The Republican county ticket had a
good boojt yesterday. It was plainly
shown that the community is with
it and that a spirit .Is abroad that
will lead to victory next Tuesday.
Nearly all the nominees of the party
arrived in Bijib.ee yesterday afternoon.
A number catno In by carriage from
the San Pedro valley, where they had
been holding meetings at the principal
points and mingling with tho voters.
Messrs Warner and Woods arrived by
train and were met at tho depot by a
largo concourse of people, reinforced
by the Copper Queen band and no
small supply of enthusiasm. For the
benefit of the minors of the night shift,
thoro was a brief meeting in front of
the library, at which several of tho
candidnteo defined their positions on
The evening meeting was a great
success. The opera house was well
tilled, and by the best element of the
city. The applause was liberal and
judiciously bestowed, and nominees
who were no orators were induced to
talk after the manner of spellbinders.
The audience very generally stayd till
the end and manifested the keenest in
terest in the discussion of public affairs.
Chairman of the evening was Dr. J.
G. Prltchard, whose introduction of
each speaker was in the happiest vein.
WARNER ON LEGISLATION.
Charles C. Warner, nominee for the
council, was tho first and principal
speaker. Ho told of his legislative ex
perience and of his elforts in behalf o
the people of Cochise county. Ho had
opposed county division in the hist leg.
iBlature and would oppose it in tho fu
ture till such time as the separation
could be into counties of the large
classes. But he explained that he hud
sounded the sentiment of the northern
part of tho county and had found no in
clination this year toward division, it
is a dead issue. He declared himself
against the removal of the territorial
penitentiary, on economic grounds
alone. The road tax is a matter that
should have legislative attention. In
closing he emphasized his devotion to
the, interests of the miner.
"WORDS FOR THE MINER.
Our townsman, Henry M. Woods,
next took the stand, to tell that he
hoped, considering the Importance of
the work before tho next legislature,
that the body would have a republican
majority. Ho express-d himself in en
tiro accord with -his colleague, Mr.
Warner, on all matters affecting thr
mining industry, and as woll aguiiih;
prison removal and all other measures
that might serve to add to the burdens
of taxation. Hfc favored a special ter
ritorial tax levy for the maintenance of
the prison, in the stead of the present
loose way of drawing
the territorial general fund. He oiu i
instances where ho had favored econ
omy In the last legislature and staled
he would continue in tho same cours
if reelected. Mr. Woods spoko of tho
regret of Mr. Norcross that he could
not be hero to speak in his own behalf.

found it impossible to secure u substi
tute. A good word was also spoken in
introduction of F. R. O'Brien of Tur
quoise, the third nominee for the as
sembly. O'BRIEN AOAINST DIVISION.
Mr. O'Brien proved to be ono of the
best talkers of the evening. He told
that the miner's Interests were all his
own, to bo especially guarded and main
tained. Capital is needed In the de
velopment of the many new proper
ties of Cochise county and protection
must bo given. He stated his beliof
that any movement for county division
would be Ill-timed at the present duy,
wLen the county had just arrived in the
nrst-class rank. Ho desired

One of tho hits of the evening was
the talk of "Date" Graham, -oundidatc
forSheriff. He was given the heart
iest of applause on appearance and
more of the same as he proceeded. He
opened by averring that "This politic
al life is something wonderful." A
week ago he had started out on his
canvass a-.d slnco that tune he
had heard of all tho evil ho had
everdono In his lifotlmn. The olfloe of
sherltT is one of the most important and
it would be well for tho community to
consider carefully tho claims of men
who seek it. Forhiinseir, ho plPdged
an honest, active aamtniAtratinn and
that he would appoint asdoputlos nono
but reputable citizens.

PENMAN 3TILLMAN CLAIM.
H. C. Stillman, for recorder, mado
one of tho best of tho speeches. Ho
thought it odd there should be people
in the audience whom he did not know,
knowledge of the qualifications de
manded. Though a miner for thirty
years, ho had latterly been bookkeeper
for Overlook Bros., of Bisbee, a, po
sition that enabled the people of Bisbee
to toll for themselves whether he had
tho main qualification for reoorder
the ability to write a plain, clear hand.
He believed the office could readily be
handled by himself alone, and spoke of
wio aum oi auoi mat uaa ueen expeuuuu
by thu supervisors in the past eighteen
months for aid for the present incum
bont. This amount he believed be
could have saved tho county.
ASSESSOR AND SUPERVISORS.
Chas. Overlook, for assessor, stated
his belief that he is well qualified for
the post he seeks, and especially well
fitted on the complex question of the
values in Bisbee.
G. B. Reay, candidate for supervisor,
stated that though he is now a resident
of Naco, he lived for years in Bisbee,
and that Bisbee would certainly be
well taken tare of if he bo elected.
A. V. Noyos, also a candidate for
Supervisor, announced himself on the
start as a hayrfeed. Ho developed" a
humorous vein that tickled thn audi
ence might ly and that mado him mahy
friends and not a few votes. Ho has
been in the count', most of the time on
the Sin Pedro, since 73. He had come
to the conclusion that tho reason that
taxes in the.county were$4.20 was'be
cause there had been too many ''good
fellows" elected to oflice. "A fellow
who is too free with his own money
will do the same, with the county
money. You want a man who can
hold on to a dollar till the eagle
shrieks." He would mix no politics
with the administration of tho office.
The voter should look at tho eleotion of
supervisor in a business light. Aa su
pervisor he would try to fix up the
roads. No man now knoweth. where
the road fund goes. He paid his re
spects to the present district attorney,
whose office, it would appear, could be
filled by a school child, for assistance
has to bo employed from California,
Texas or Pima county when a ase of
importance came on. Cochise county
appears to have boon the milch cow for
Pima county, and money has thus been
distributed that should have been kept
Supervisor Allaire. of Wilcox, candi
date for re-election, asked for the suf
frages of the citizens of Bisbee on his
past record and promlsod economy and
retrenchment in the event of success.
FOB GOOD SCHOOLS.
Prof. F. 0. WillRrd, candidate for
county superintendent of schools,
spoke of the duties of tht responlble
office and of the necessity for visiting
every sohool district within the county
nt lea6t twice a year. He believed his
four years experience as a teacher in
the county, as principal of tho Tomb
stone schools,well qualUlod him for the
place. He believe 1 there are seriouB
defects in the school law nnd advised
amendment through the efforts of the
county's representatives in tho legisla
ture. He would give full service, backed
by all the energy and ability he pos
sesses. FOR OFFICIAL ECONOMY.
Judge G. W. Swain, nominee for dis
trict attorney, entered more immedi
ately into tho discussion ot county
aif airs than hud the preceding speakers.
He considered himself well informed
in the minutiae of the office. The
place is one that haB much to do with
the protection of property and with re
lief from excessive burdens of taxation.
The district attorney is the advisor of
tho supervisors. Judge Swain prom
ised to give undivided attention to the
interests of the peoplo of the county.
He denied the charge made by his op
ponent that b' had had only sixteen
criminal cases and not onn murder case
during his two years' incumbency of
tho offloe in 1895-'90, and produced tho
record that he had been the cause of
more convietiovs in his two years term
than had Land during tho four years
of tho latter's incumbency, and Swain's
record included convictions and sen
tences in the only murder cases pre
sented, two In number Though, in
his term, he had successfully defended
fivo civil appeals to the Arizona su
preme court and one to the supreme
court of tho United States, in which
the county was a party, he had never
drawn a dollar from the county for as
sistance, nor would he if elected. He
asked the vctnr to put a searchlight
of investigation upon his record and to
vote for him if all be found as it should
THE PRECINCT NOMINEES
Tho precinct officers then had their
say. Judge S. K. Williams told that
he had tried to do his duty on all oc
casions and would do the same if re
elected. W. W. Wood told of. his ex
perience as a court reporter, justice of
the peace and practicing attorney.
Michael Doyle and F. W. Oliver, can
didates for constable, told of their ex
perience In tho past and of their desire
to faithfully serve the people in office.
As Doyle put it, ho had lived in Bisbee
seventeen yearB, had never sought
trouble in that time and would never
run away from It.
Then, all the nominees having had
their say, tho meeting broke up in the
best of humor and with eenorally
volced approval of the candidates and

A Glorious Prospect for Arizona,
The magnificent reception accorded
Mr. Bryan last week In New York, and
the similar one gjven Mr. Stevenson iu
Chicago at the same time, prove that
the Empire state and the grand old
commonwealth of Illinois are no longer
doubtful but safe for the democratic
ticket, thereby assuring its election.
The Bow of Promise for Arizona is
already In the sky. The glorious day
that we have waited for so long is at
hand. Fellow subjects, try to under
stand the situation and be happy.
William Jennings Bryan is to be presi
dent. He 4s pledged to have Arizona
made a state at once. He has said of
the delegate that we arc going to elect
to congress: "We served in congress
together, and few men have ever won
my regard and admiration more than
Mark Smith of Arizona."
The presiding officer of the United
States senate, the man who will select
all the committees of that body, and be
the controlling influence of its legisla
tion, is to be the Hon. Adlui E. Steven-

for Arizona will result. We can have

Not only citizens

selves the honor to vote for the con
summation of this glorious outlook.
Mr. Murphy has one good office already.
Allow him to have the honor of being
the last territorial governor of. Ari
zona, the land of sunshine and silver.
What Democratic SUCCeSS Means,
Just allow yourself to imagine for a
few moments that the excitement at
tendant on an election contest is all
over. The votes have been counted
und shown every single democrat on
the ticket to have been elected. The
new officers have entered upon the du
ties of theirrespective offices. This is
the condition in our county.
The board of supervisors is com
posed of Thomas R. York, of Ramsey
Canyon, in the Huaohucas, P. J. Dele
hanty, of Benson, and B. F. Graham,
of Bisbee. The different sections and
different industries of the county are
represented by these three intelligent,
honest, successful business men. They
hold in their control nearly all that
pertains to the welfare of the county.
Their legal adviser is E. W. Land, the
district attorney. Their executive of
ficer is Sheriff Dell Lewis, who has an
efflotent staff of deputies. They are
quietly- but rapidly cleaning out the
outlaws who had honored our county
witn tQOlr presence after escaping jus-
tice in the eastern states. Life and
property throughout the county bave

see now smaii ana not now large tneir
bills against the county shall be. The
taxes are assessed by Walter T. Fife,
who has shown up thousands of dollars
worth of taxable property that had
hitherto escapee notice. The tax rate
is in consequence reduced. The funds
of the county are in the custody of
M. D. Scribner, who keeps a most
business-hko record, and whose word
is better than most people's bond. The
same uccurate record of the county's
affairs continues to be collected in the
archives by that tried and trusted offi
cer, Frank Hare. All probate mat
ters are so wisely and intelligently ad
justed that the people wonder why it
was never done bofore, by C. W. Bost
wick. New and more accurate sur
veys have been made of portions of the
county,- and capital assured that invest
ments will purchase exactly the property-described
in the deed. The pub
lic schools have aitan d a degree of
excellence which compare favorably
with the best schools in the east, be

ihe territorial legislature is in ses
sion. The recodification of the laws
uus ueca completed. The whole ter
ritory is showering comments of prals6
on the delegation from Cochise, which
being led by a wise and conservative
constitutional lawyer, James S. Robin
son, In the council, and composed in the
lower house of Col. Mike Gray, the
speaker, a veteran lawmaker, who also
served in the Fourteenth when the old
code was enacted, Stephen Roemer of
Benson, and Edward Brown of Bisbee,
has revived the days when the voice of
Cochise counted for something In ths
Voter, if this condition meets with
your approval, If your sober second
thout would commend, If every in-
wHicou ucui- nuu important to you ana
yours would be advanced, help to make
the dream a reality by voting for It at
the polls next Tuesday.
Mr. Roemer is one of the men to be
sent to the territorial legislature to
look out for the interests of Cochise
county among tho gentlemen who are
to use that beautiful new capitol build
ing at Phoenix. Steve is the agent at
Benson for the Wells-FargoExpressCo.
and incidentally holds that same posi
tion for our own Arizona und South
Eastern Railroad Co. Steve was raised
in the Blue Grass state. Some would
say, he went from bad to worse, from
Kentucky to Arizona. But Wells-
Furgo, like the A. & S. E., insist on
having good men in their positions of
trust, whatever the looality. He has
had little time to make a oampaign and
was scared at the outset by being told
that certain people in remote parts" of',
the county, wanted no men in the leg-,
lslature who were In the" employ-'and
under the domination of that grinding
monopoly, the Copper Queen. But
8tevo will get more republican votes In "
Bisbae for that very reason than he
will lose demooratic ones In other
E laces. The old days of unreasonable
ostlllty to the employes of the Copper
Queen have about died out, but not
quite. We will vote for Mr. Roemer v
not because he is or is not a fellow
workman, but because he is a first class
all round good fellow and trustworthy
intelligent man. He is a sort of combi
nation of the good qualities of Scribner
and Wentworth. He will be in town
until after the big meeting on Monday
night. You need only to know him to
give him your vote.
The Latest From the Territory.
Apache County will be very close.
Both sides claim small majority.
Cochise will give not less than 200 ,
majority for Smith. Coconino willprob- .
ably go republican by a email majority.
Registration is light. Grand old Gila
premises Smith at least 250 more than
Marphy w;ll get within her borders.
There have been great changes during
the past week. Graham, always the
banner democratic county, expects to
go democratic by 400. Marlcona is en
gaged In the hottest political contest
the county has ever known. Smith's
majority is estimated at from 200 to 100. .
Mohave is democratic by over 100
votes. Navajo is close. Sawyer claims
democratic victory Is certain. Old
Pima will give Smith from 150 to 250
majority. Pinal is one of the safest
democratic counties in the territory.
No authentic estimate of figures re
ceived. Santa Cruz is a small county
but its democratic victory wil bo re
latively large. Yavaial is the moat
closely watched county of them all,
and is the hardest to estimate. Both
sides claim substantial majorities.
But as the republicans aro past musters
in the art of making claims, little faith
is placed in their predictions. Yuma
promises 200 majority for Smith.
The Legislature will stand about as
follows: Council, Democrats 9, Repub
licans 3. The lower housos will con
tain not less than three and not mote
than 7 republicans
