DEMOLISHED ALL CHARGES.
The speaker first paid attention ty
the charges" that Mark Smith aui

out tho territory. He presented the

The stock argument that the Repiib-1
ltcan party Imd caused the closlug of
the silver mlnee he demolished by the !
simple statement of a fact wall known
to every miesr in Bisbee, that the sil

more important silver properties
throughout the territory closed down

capitalists, represented by Frank M. 1
Murphy, and it is probable that the
oamp will be revived by them and
again be made a great producer.
The accusations of Rochester Ford
about the Pima county railway bonds
were shown little. less than venal.
Rochester Ford had accepted a re
tainer from the Pima county supervis
ors as counsel against the brids, and
to the supervisors had declared that
the bonds were illegal and void, beyond,
the shadow of a doubt. Now ha de
clares 'on the stump that the funding
bill amendments, w-hlch were In exist
ence when bo took the retainer, make
the bonds & legal charge against the
county. Gov. Murphy pointedly sug
gested to Mr. Ford that be had better
return. to the county the retainer be
had accepted on the basis of the illegal
ity of the bonds.
Trusts were shown not a Republican
institution, by any means. That they
are common to both parties was shown
b; the illustrations of Boss Croker at
the head of the New York ice trust and
Chairman Jones of the Democratic
National Committee the main owner of
stock in the notorious Round Bale
Cotton Compress trust.
In conclusion the Governor dealt!
foraibly with the matter of Statehood.
He showed the necessity of plaoing
Arizona in the Republican coluroa this
year, as the president and congress will
assuredly be republioan till March i
and every sign of the times points tc
word the triumphant return of William
McKlnley to the presidential ohair,
There can be no doubt that the ad
dress made a profound impression upon
the Citizens of Bisbee. They were'
shown they had been lied to and triok-c-d
and that the governor bad been only ,
vilified and misrepresented by thei
opposition. Naturally tbey are indig-1
nant, for no man Is pleased when he
finds he has been fooled and deceived.
It was the wish of the citizens of
Bisbee that the governor spend at least
a day in Bisbee, but he was compelled
to, hurry away, to All. engagements, that
had been made for him at other points, i
H went assured that Bisbee had been
jet aright and that the city would Join
