At last tbe administration has found
out Iho bunco game that Spain played
on the Cleveland administration and
bai. been trying to play on the present
one. thanks to the wide-awake re
ports of Consul General Fitzhugh Lee,
and justice is seemingly going to be
done to poor Cuba. Mr. McKinloy
baa bad a long conference with too
members of tbe Senate committee on
Foieign Relations, as to what should
be donp. The impression is that Sen
ator Morgan'q.resolutlon for the recog
nition of Cuban belllgeroncy hardly
goes far enough anil that a rccogultlon
of Indent ndttneo would be tho proper
thing, in view of the facts forwarded
by Gen. Lee. A public mass meeting
of Cuban sympathizers was held In
Washington Sunday. '
Tue sugar trust controlled the
ub-comniittee which drafted the
amendments to the Dtngley tariff
Lill. but all it will bo able to get out
ef tho sugar schedule will be the
money that has already been made
through speculation on the advance
kuowledgo of what the schedule was to
be, as a majority of the Senate have
made it ceitain that the sugar schedule
cannot be put through by declaring
themselves to be against it. The tariff
bill is not likely to bo taken up by the
Senate on tbe 20th as agreed upon,
which delay will be caused by tbe
falluie to get a trustworthy compara
tive statement showing the differences
that will bo tho result of the proposed
changes. Tuero is another thing
about tbe tariff bill that can be stated
with cortalnty. There will be an
.- anti-trust amendment adopted before
' the bill passes the Senate. Tbe necei
iaary votes are promised.
The Executive committee of the
Fourth of July celebration have been

A W00L-S00URINQ PLANT
Will lie Established at Flagstaff When
Waterworks are Completed.
While in St. Louis A. T. Cornish
met a teptesentativo of a lare wool
linn in that city and obtained the 1 n
foimation that as soon as our watei
woiks are completed a large woo-
scouiing plant will be put iu here. Ii
is the Intention of this nrm to ohlitlu
all the wool in own in this section of
Aiizoua, scour it at Flagstaff and ship
it to their warehouses in St. Louis.
We do not understand why all wool is
notNcouied before shipping. It does
not seem ressonablt) to pay freight on
about one-half (lit l in a cat load of wool.
It is belter, we believe, to leave the
dirt hern In Arizona and load the car
with puie wool. It is claimed that
fieiuht rates are necessaiilv higher on
scouted than unsrournd wool; that onl.i
about half the quantity of scouted wool
can be gotten Into a car that can be
ciowded In of the uuscoiired product,
and that thus tbe rates ate correspond
inglv higher. I Ills is ceitainly non-
seniical and untitle, Thete is no rea
son why scoured wool cannot be tlghtlv
haletl and just as many nonnils put In a
carlWof tinscoured wool. Wool should
he scouted aud wo are glad to learn of
the establishment iu Flagstaff, the cen
ter of the wool-gt owing section of Aii
zdiiii, of a wool-scouting plant. It
mean more ptolil for the wool grower
and is an enlerptise that will be of
"rent beuelit to the town.
Many I'hoentcluus Anxious to Rent
Ntimei ous letters of inquiry have
bet-n teceived bv a number of our citi
zens fiotn residents of Phoenix who
ate anxious to come up ant1, spend the
summer bete. Tlitty inqtiite for cot
iMges and in neatly oei Installed tbe
reply they leceiveil was th.tt there aie
no houses for lent in Flagstaff.
'Ibis statu of affairs should not be
allowed to continue. It xeetus to us
that soiiih of our enterprising citizens
should take It Upon Iheinselves to erect
a number of small cottages, the coat
for tho constioutioii of which would bit
siiixll, lumUh ihmi plainly and com
fortably aud reut them out to our
htiminer vUitois. A nice, fit income
could he lit rived fiom the lent of the
collages aud Flagstaff whiiM be the
g liner by this iuci eased population.
IV be sure, tbe cottages ma) not be
occupied more than fniirorthu month
iu the year, but conidduiiug the cheap
ucxs with which they may bo con
stiucted, the leut leceived ihcicfrom
in this time will amount to very satis
fautoryjitterest on the invixttuunu
This matter Is of great impoilatica.
for if Flagstaff expects to draw the
visitots aud totiiisis our superb cli
malt) met its, some kind of accommo
dations must be afforded.
