With the convening of the twenty
first Legislnturo at Phoenix last Mon
day the eyes of the tax-payers at home
have been turned in the direction of
the capital city. News reports bring
the announcement that the organiza
tion was orderly and that the Demo
crats succeeded in distributing the pie
in a manner satisfactory to the repre
sentatives from each county. As pre
dicted Eugene S. Ives was chosen as
President of tho council and P. P. Par
ker, speaker of the Houso. Both are
men well qualified for tho position and
insures the rapid transaction of busi
ness in both houses. Tho members of
the 21st Legislature are composed
men well versed in tho needs and nee
essities of their several localities and ,
who enjoy the implicit confidence of '
their constituents. This is in tho be .
einnimr. It will be their duty to re-1
turn the honor imposed to their consti-
tuents at the end of tho sixty days
tarnished by a single stain.
The present session is confronted by
legislation of unusual importance and
foremost is tho adoption of tho report
of tho code commission. County divi-
sion schemes will be advanced and no '
doubt tho bullion tax will again make !
us appearance, me proceeuings oi
the legislature will bo watched closely
through these columns and all bills ef
fecting Cochise county especially, will
bo publishod in full.
IT is with especial regret tnat tho
Review announces tho demise of Edi
tor A. P. Showman, of the Mesa Frco
Press. Mr. Shewraan was a man of
prominent in Arizona which position
he had attained by conscientious pains
taking efforts both in public and private
life. The Review oxtonds hcartfolt
sympathy to the bereaved family.
C. C. Varnek, of Cochise county,
received the complimentary vote of his
party for President of tho Counoil at
the organization of that body on Mon
day last. Churlio Warner "cuts con
siderable ico1' in the Council notwith-
standing the fact that there are nine
democrats against three Republicans.
Unless more rain fulls in the moun
tains Bisbeo will bo threatened with a
water famino during tho summer
months. Tho water question in Bisbeo
is fast becoming a serious ono.
The young lady dorks in tho 21st
met tho old members of tho Legislature
at tho Phoonix depot. Mombcrs with
their wives wero not recognized.
VICTORIA, QUEEN AND EMPRESS.
The death of Victoria, Queen of Great
Briton and Ireland, and Empress of In
dia, ends a life that has influenced the
world for good in a greater degree than
most lives of whom we have any knowl
edge. It is an interesting fact, and one
on which the modern advocates of the
political rights of women like to dwell,
that the two most illustrious reigns be
yond all comparison in British history
should be those of two of its female
soverigns, Elizabeth and Victoria.
Two persons could hardly be more un
like than these two queens or have liv
ed under much more diverse circum
stances. Elizabeth was the last of the
princely Tudors who ruled England
more absolutely than any of the other
dynasties. She was fortunately sur
rounded by wise an able statesmen, but
nc.PrrA with the mnioritv of that bodv
becomes premier and governs the em
pire. George III. tried to be a states
man but signally failed. With this ex
ception none of the Guelph dynasty
have made any pretext toreigning be
yond signing state papers when and
where told to do so. No soverign since
Queen Anne has exercised the prerogaj
tive of vetoing any bill passed by parli
ment When Victoria ascended the
throne, the court and English society
were nearly as corrupt as Charles II
left them. Victoria has influenced
Great Briton, not by making laws, but
by creating public opinion which is be-
. hind and above all law. The royal pat
ronage, which is rapidly followed by
most other patronage, was given to
tradesmen of honesty and integrity.
God fearing and righteous priests were
appointed to tho positions of influence
in the church. Barristers of learning
and purity were placed in control of
the law courts. Civil service was in
troduced into the government offices,
tho army and navy. Immoral people
ceased to bo received at court and in
consequence were barred from society.
Tho British people soon realized that a
sovereign of lofty moral character was
at the head of tho nation and that right
living was the qualification necessary
in them to tho securing of royal favor
or to rising in whatever walk of life
they followed. Victoria was the
ctecendants practically govern fc-urope.
Her subjects have helped to people
every country and clime taking with
them something of that high standard
of morality which has found favor with
their queon. These are some of the
ways in which her influence for good
has been far reaching. Americans re
member her as being in sympathy with
the Union during the dark days of our
civil war when most of the British aris-
tocracy openly championed the south
and as the woman who extended sym
pathy and comfort to tho widows of
Lincoln and Garfield such as only one
who had suffered tho same sorrows
could give. Although a devout adher
ent of what we call the Episcopal
Church, her sympathy and support wero
given to people of every faith and creed.
! She has reigned longer than any mon
arch who ever sat upon tho English
throne and has outlived the usual time
allotted to mankind but her death is
nevertheless a calamity and the Amori
can people feel a deep sympathy with
their British cousins who are saying
with anguish "Tho Queon is dead" and
with hope "Long live tho King."
The Review has made nrransrements
to recoivo copies of all bills introduced
in both houso of tho Legislature. They
will bo kept on file in this office for tho
inspection of tho public.
The Gazetto has the following nice
tilings to say about our members of tho
Hon. II. M. Woods, assemblyman
from Cochise and wife aro in Phoenix
and will remain till th" legislature ad
journs. Mr. Woodri was one of tho fow
republicans olected in Cochiso county
at tho last election. Ho was a member
of tho assembly two years ago and re
presented his peoplo conscientiously
and woll. Tho Gazetto oxtonds a wel
come to Mr. and Mrs. Woods and hopes
thoir stay in Phoenix may bo pleasant.
RETAIN THE MEDICAL LAW
If Arizona is to be preserved from
becoming the dumping ground for the
Quack doctors and medical fakes of
the entire country, the present medi
cal law must be retained and even im
proved. The medical laws of the va
rious states in the union are being
made more stringent and higher
standards of proficiency demanded of
physicians from year to year. As the
incompetent and dishonest practition
ers are driven out from these statjs,
they seek fields where the legal re
quirements are less exacting. Ari
zona should be protected from these
smooth tongued money getters by a
medical law which requires just as
high a standard of professional attain
ment of new men who would come to
practice their profession with us as is
in force in New York, Pennsylvania,
Minnessota, Georgia or any of the pro
gressive up-to-date commonwealths.
The best qualified medical men can do
little for us when we need their servi
ces. Tho present medical law of the
territory is a very good one, if properly
enforced. None of its provisions ap
ply to the old practitioners who came
to the territory before its enactment.
All would-be new practitioners are re
quired to pass a medical examination
board composed of physicians of their
own school. This board is appointed
by the Governor who is expected to
appoint some of the acknowl
edged best professional men in
the territory upon it. They
receive no salary coneequently
impose no tax on tho people for their
maintainance. The only condition
that has prevented the best results
from being obtained from this law is
the fact that offenses against its pro
visions are tried in the local justice
courts of the various counties. Four
years' experience has shown that this
arrangement does not secure a proper
enforcement. Let the present legis
lature amend the law only to the ex
tent of placing violations of its pro
visions in the custody of the territorial
district courts and the people of Ari
zona will be amply protected .from un
scrupulous fakirs and another proof
will be in evidence that our fitness for
statehood compares favorably with the
best governed states in the Union.
NORTHERN ARIZONA NORMAL.
The Review is in receipt of a copy
of tho report ef the Secretary of the
Board of Education made to the 21st
legislature in regard to the Normal
schools of Arizona. The report shows
the Normal school at Tempe to be in a
healthy condition with an average at
tendance of 180, and the graduating
class of 1901 will consist of eighteen
members Of the Territorial Income
for the support of the Tempe Normal
aggregating $10,000 nearly $9000 is ex
pended for salaries, and none but the
best instructors are employed. Arizona
must maintain a Normal school and we
believe the legislature will recommend
a liberal appropriation for this purpose.
That portion of the report which is of
particular interest to members of the
Legislature, is the reference to the
Northern Normal, which was establish
ed by the last legislature and which
bids fair to become an eye sore to the
tax-payers of the territory for years to
come. Of the $20,000 set apart by tho
last Legislature for the completion of
tho building, about $16,000 was expend
ed and the building is a long ways from
completion yet. The maximum atten
dance for this year reached the small
number of forty all told and part of
these students should still bo in the
public schools. The balance of the
$20,000 has been expended and the Nor
thern Arizona Normal is now asking
that a tax levy be made of $8000 for
this year, and that this amount be set
apart immediately from the general
fund for tho maintenance of the school
until next June.
It is expected that five full fledged
teachers will be graduated from the
Northern Normal this year. These
graduation exercises will represent a
cost to the territory of about 11,000
provided tho Legislature makes the ex
tra appropriation asked for.
It is the sheerest folly for this terri
tory to attempt to maintain two nor
mal schools at this time. The atten
dance at tho Northern Normal shows
thero is no need for such institution,
and the Legislature should put its foot
down now and refuse this appropria
tion. Governor Mukphy recommends
tho removal of the territorial prison
from Yuma. Although he does not
mention any particular place for its
location, perhaps ho would bo satis
fied if it was moved to Prescott. The
legisltuaro will probable ignore tho
recommendation in the interests of tho
Owns the vast and FAMOUS CANANEA
COPPER fllNES in Northern Sonora,

ward to tho office of the company, 27 William street, New York.
The titles have been carefully examined and aoproved by Logan, Demond
& Harby, Attorneys at Law, 17 William street, New York, and their opinion
has been confirmed by the judgment of tho Supremo Court of the Republic of
"1 can find six United Verdes on the Green Consolidated properties. 1 beleive
the stock of the company is worth $100 a share. I will not sell mine at any
price." George A. Treadwell, Waldorf-Astoria, New York, and Phoenix, Ariz.
"I believe it is the biggest solf-fluxing copper proposition in the world. Wo
can make copper at four cents a pound and the ore bodies seem to be practically
inexhaustible." George Mitchell, La Cananeas, Snora, Mexico.
"I have exomlned every great mine in the world, and unless it be the gold
mines in the Rand, I have never seen a more valuable mining property." Miles
W. Gibbons, 11 Broadway New York.
"I recently visited the Greene Consolidated Mines in Northern Sonora. I
had read Tread well's report and thought he must be mistaken in some of the
things ho states. I found he was mistaken, but not as I supposed. He stated
not only half tho truth. The mines are even bigger and more valuable than he
has stated them to be " William P. Biake, Professor of Mining Engineering in
the University of Arizona, address New Haven, Connecticut, and Tucson. Ariz.
"The mines are fine indeed far beyond my anticipation. The mineral oc
curs under excellent conditions. There is a great zone of faulting and' shear
ing extending the entire length of the property which is thoroughly impregnated
with every kind of copper ore." Robert T. Hill of United States Geological
Survey, Cosmos Club, Washington, D. C.
"I found the property not only all that it has been represented, but so
much better that! not only congratulate myself, but every shareholder on his in
vestment.. They are by common consent the greatest and most valuable copper
mines yet discovered and with proper equipment and management will yield
handsomo profits to the shareholders. In the light of the present development
of the property and the steadily increasing value of the ores as the work of
opening these wonderful mines progresses, the report of Prof. Treadwell 6f
November 1st. last seems modest in the extreme. Although I am a layman,
I venture this remark because the development of the mines has now reached
that stage that does not require an expert to understand the enormons de
posits and value of ore. 1 do not hesitate to say that in my judgment and in
the judgment of all who have seen the property, we have a bonanza gf no small
proportions, I am also fully satisfied of this that I shall not only substantially
increase my own investments but I shall advise my friends to do the same
thing, and in doing so I am sure I will be doing them a positive favor.'' Gen
eral Thomas H. Anderson, United States Attorney of the District of Columbia,
Washington, D. C.
"Now that I have seen the mines and breathed the beautiful idvigoaating
air of the Canuaneas, I know that Dr McCullom of New York, whom I met at
Nogales. was right when he said that those would, in the near future- be the
largest and best mining camp on this continent." Geofgo S. Robbins, Blooms
"I have known about the Cananeas for thirty years. It is a most magnifi
cent copper properiy." Don Pedro B. Chisem Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico.
