WHAT MARK I1ANNA SAYS
Senator Himna predicts that the
present session of congress will be
n business session in the strictest
sense. While it will last but three
months, he believes that tho time
will be sufliciont to pass such legis
lation as is really necessary.
In his opinion the Frye shipping
bill will pass. Senator Hanna has
long been impressed with tho im
ortttnco of this measure.
lAs to tho Nicaragua canal bill,
much depends, in his opinion, on
the outcome of tho Hay-Pounce-forte
treaty." If it is ratified, and
tho senator thinks it will be, the
bill will, undoubtedly bo passod.
As to the army bill, Senator
Hanna says that stands in a differ
ent light from tho other measures.
There will be practically no oppo
Hition to it, and there will be no
delay in passing it.
A large portion of the war taxes
will be removed, and with these
measures out of the way, there will
still be time to consider much
This line on legislation at the
present session is probably as ac
curate as any that can be given at
Referring to tho ages of the mem
bers of the United States senate, a
Washington correspondent says: The
senate undergoes, occasionally, some
thing in the nature of transition. The
recent ro-olcotion of Morgan, of Ala
bama, at the ago of 77, the rrobablo re
turn of Hoar, of Massachusetts! at the
age of 75, and tho active canvass of
Galium, of Illinois, is a reminder that
the senate is to have in the future, as
in the past, tho discretion of years.
There are fourteen senators who are
70 years of ago or older Pettus, of Al
abama; Morgan, of the same stato;
Hoar, of Massachusetts; Hawley, of
Connecticut; Piatt, of Connecticut;
Stewart, of Nevada; Allison, of Iowa;
Cullum, of Illinois; Fry, of Maine;
Vest, of Missouri; Jones, of Nevada;
IJate, of Tonnosoe; Proctor, of "Ver
mont and Plattt, of New York. Mr.
Pettus is 80 or thereabouts.
What is believed an important dis
covery of coal was last week made by
Mr. N. H.Mollor about three miles east
of Dudley villo, in Pinal county. This
is not far from what is known as the
Deer Creek coal fields in Graham coun
ty. Concerning this discovery the Ari
zoona Blade says: "A letter received
from him by Mr. George A. Brown, of
Florence, Tuesday, states that ho ex.
Iect8 to have throe feet of coal uncov
ered by the end of this week. The voin
and the formation lie perfectly flat,
therefore in place. This makes Mr.
Mollor's find the most valuable of all
the coal strikes yet reported in the
southern part of tho territory. We
have always contended that tho val
uable coal measures would de found
west of tho Denr Creek flold for the
reason that tho formation hore is in
plnce and Is equally as favorable for
ooal as tho Deer Creek formation."
Gov. M. 0. Otero, of Now Mexico, is
in Washington pushing tho claims of
his territory for statehood. ,He and
Govornpr Murphy, of Arizona, woro in
Chicago together. Besides working
for statehood another piece of legisla
tion which these gentlemen will give
attention is to make every effort to
haTO Arizona and New Mexioo named
in the irrigation bill, Speaking of this
irrigation bill Governor Otero is quot
ed as follows: "For some unaccount
able reason tho names of tho two terri
tories havo boon omitted in the mesure,
which calls for an appropriation of
$10,000,000;for tho purpose of construct
ing an irrigation system in several of
tho new woBtorn states. Just why the
names of Now Mexico and Arizona
should bo omitted wo are at a loss to
determine. The only reason that we
seo for the omission is that the con
gressman from Colorado is making an
effort to aid'our cause by advanoing an
argument why wo should be admitted
to the v, family of states. Why, we
re wards of the gdyernmeat, and eb
wards are entitled even to moro consid
eration than aro the states, and we
trust that our plea for a good share in
tho appropriation will not be set
asldo." . , .

It is hardly probable that the com
ing session of the Arizona legislature
will give much time to tho considera
tion of tho bill which it is declared will
again be urged providing for tho elec
tive franchise for women in Arizona.
It is beljoved that tho good ladies who
in tho past have Importuned former
legislatures for tho right of suffrage
for their sox will find at the outset of
the coming session that their qause is
hopeless. In past legislatures much
time has been put in on tho suffrage
question, and two years ago it looked
for a timo that tho right to vote would
bo conferred on tho women of Arizona,
but a determined opposition by Coun
cilman Olnoy, of Graham, and Finlqy,
of Pima county, killed the bill. Tho
sentiment of tho present council is said
to be very strong on the anti side of
the suffrage question, and if this is so
the women who appear in Phoenix
should bo told so frankly, so that they
will not sacrifico their time and energy
in a fruitless endeavor to gain the goal
of their ambition at this time.
The Revikw predicts a great future
for Bisboe. The great improvements
bein'g made by tho Copper Queen is a
sufficient guarantee ofvhe presence of
sufficient ore to keep that company in
operation, perhaps, beyond the lifetime
of a generation. The various mining
camps springing into active operation
in the country surrounding and tribu
tary to Bisbee further guarantee the
future growth of the trade which will
come to this city. Already Bisbee is a
city of six thousand people and its pres
ent growth is all that could be desired
and of that substantial character which
is most gratifying. In no other place
in Arizona or the southwest can bo
found a better class of people. The
good order of the people which pre
vails in Bisbee, notwithstanding the
fact that our population is more or less
shifting, as in all mining camps, is re
markably good and' is remarked by all
strangers coming here. Tho para
mount industry here is of course that
of the Copper Queen and be it said to
the credit of tho management of this
company that their policy is to employ
the very best class of labor to be had.
Their policy has peopled our town with
industry and frugality and happy and
contented homes. Let us all stand to
gether and build up Bisbee and every
interest in it.
The Marked success in the develop
ment of araesian water in the Gila
valley of Graham county, is attracting
oonsiderablo attention. Experiments
are being made in several counties.
Pima will soon be in line with making
a practical test. There is every reason
to believe that the test will be success
ful as the natural conditions seem to
exist. Artesian water developed in
this valley or the Tucson basin will
result in hundreds of the most beauti
ful farms and scores of villas which
will attract winter visitors from all
sections of the north, east and west.
These farms will also be a large re
source of wealth, and will supply gar
don, -farm, poultry and dairy pro
ducts which are now brought from
foreign sections. Artesian water in
any section of Arizona, means much
mealth, but in no section will it prove
of such great value ns in this bnsiuand
valley tributary to Tuoson. Star.
