A London anarchist paper flaunt
ing the black flag and under the

appointed time, with a popularben

an unprecedented amount of mate

persons in question should not be

subjects for the gallows as justice
ever comes across in this countrv.

Labor attempted to boycott a ball

At Bloomington, Illinois, on the
25th ult., Judge Scott granted the
supersedeas in the Anarchists' case.
Messrs. Black, Swett and Solomon
started at once for Ottawa to have
the Clerk issue the order in pursu
ance to Judge Scott's instructions.
The effect of the order for the su
persedeas will be to delay the exe
cution until the full Bench of the
Supreme Court has passed upon
the questions raised for a new trial.
It is estimated that in the ordinary
course of procedure a hearing and
decision cannot be reached for six
or eight weeks, and even though
the lower Court is sustained the
sentence cannot be carried out un
til some time in March or April.
Judge Scott's order granting the
supersedeas is purely formal. With
out going into any particulars or
giving any reasons, he simply cer

The London City Companies
have resolved to sell their lands in
the North of Ireland on easy terms
to the tenants. The Salters Com
pany will transfer 15,000 acres at
the purchase price, 20,000, under
the terms of the Ashbourne act.
The Fishmongers Company will
transfer 20,500 acres at a rental of
9,500. They offer toseli to "the
tenants a twenty year's purchase
on the Government valuation, the
tenants paying annually 30 per
cent under the present rental. The
Drapers Company offers 27,025
acres at a yearly rental of 12,500
at eighteen years' purchase. The
tenants accept the offers. The
transfer covers nearly all the Coun
ty of Londonderry.
The Cincinnati Enquirer says
Mr. Thomas Powder O'Connor,
Member of Parliament, wires the
New York Star that "the Foreign
Office is convinced that there will
be no war with Russia this year."
"This year" means, of course, this
winter. When we see British con
sols, a permanent loan, bearing 3
percent interest, the principal 'of
which is never to be paid, rising to
102 1-10, as they did yesterday, we
are forced to conclude either that
the Foreign Office is right or that
the market is all wrong. From the
New York Herald's best cable cor
respondent comes news of the same
character. He says : "The impres
sion in German official circles is
that Russia will obtain all she asks
by .agitation in Bulgaria without
landing an army there. Austria
will get no support from Germany
against Russia in any case." Edi
torially the Herald inclines to the
view that the European situation
is greatly strained, and that next
summer it may break into war;
but, it adds : "It is not in Bulgaria,
however, where Russian influence
is paramount, that the war cloud is
darkest. It is in Egypt and along
the Suez Canal. It is there that the
jealous interests of all maritime
Europe are centered there the bat
tles of the near future are. to be
j All this is interesting ; but the
Enquirer has not moved a single
inch from the position that it has
occupied all through this protract
ed racket. There can be no great
war in Europe at present without
the consent of Germany, and with
the Emperor on the edge of the
grave, Bismarck but a little further
away, and France eagerly waiting !
fight sometimes goes without say
ing. But it will not be this winter,
and the markets show it.
TnE question of constructing a
telegraphic line from St. Johns to
Navajo is attracting the attention
and interest of- business men
throughout the county. We un
derstand the scheme is favorably
entertained and its adoption eng
couraged both at Holbrook and
Winslow, and more particularly at
the latter place. Practical telegraph
men commend the idea as one
worthy of consideration, promising
a profitable return for the invest
ment, and adding a feature of pro
gressive stability to St. Johns. It
is said the construction and mate
rial will cost only about $2,500, and
from what we could learn parties
are ready and willing to subscribe
most of the capital stock, but de
sire that citizens in and around St.
Johns should, to some extent, be
come stockholders, in order to give
the enterprise a local identity. A
telegraph line would prove a source
of great convenience to the busi
ness community of the town, and
would become a factor of no insig
nificant proportion in .its develop
ment. vIt would establish facilities
for communication with the out
side world, ami give us a commer
cial importance which we can never
enjoy without it. This is the near
est approach we can make to sup
plying tho inconveniences resulting
from a want of railroad facilities,
and we feel confident that even
those who cannot or will not lend
a helping hand, would not attempt
to thwart or embarrass the accom
plishment of the enterprise. We
hope some one will place the mat
ter upon a practical basis and ma
terialize the suggestion ; the amount
needed is small and the promised
benefits great, and there is no rea
son why the necessary stock should
not be subscribed, if the right men
take hold of Ur and show up its
practicability and its legitimate
This project is the first evolution
under tne new order of things, and
is but the promise of what we may
hope foriin the future, if the ser
vants of the people will continue
in well doing and fidelity. The
regime of the past is over, the day
oi its aestinv is gone, ana as we
turn from a retrospect of the wreck
behind us, to form anew plans for
the brighter and more hopeful fu
ture we may find at least something
of comfort in the charitable reflec
tion that blessings are not the only
things which brighten as they take
As Arizona has sufficient cattle
to stock her waste places, her peo
ple are opposed to the driving in of
any more herds of scrub stock, and
a law to prevent it will have to be
passed and enforced.
The above suggestion made by
the Prescott Courier is very perti
nent at the present time, and has
long been a subject of greater or
less agitation among our stock
men. The New Mexican sheer
have been bitterly complained of
for raiding our ranges, while they
pla-ed hide and seek with the tax
collector. Two or three arrests
were made near Winslow at the in
stigation of the Aztec Cattle Com
pany, and an example made at
Flagstaff, by imposing fines and
penalties upon these poaching itin
erants. We now hear no complaints
against these foreign sheep-herders,
so we suppose they have profited
by the salutan warning. But a no
less serious annoyance is threaten
ed, as intimated in the above lines
of the Courier. The ranges of
Apache county, taking the water
supply into consideration, are about
stocked to their full capacity. The
steady increase of stock cattle upon
the ranches, has brought into se
rious discussion questions, which
have heretofore been unconsidered.
In order to protect the pasturage,
the ranges must be depleted as rap
idly as possible, and the beef cattle
placed upon the market.

come an absolute necessity, and
our stockmen are beginning to real
ize it is more profitable to place
beef upon the market at two and
tfiree-year-olds, than hold them for
four years at the expense of the
range and to the injury of their
stock cattle. Every year the ne
cessity for a new departure from
the old business methods becomes
more apparent, and every protec
tion possible must be extended to
the producing herds, which . must
depend constantly upon the ranges
for thrift and subsistence. Under
this new order of things yearly
augmenting in force, the language
of the Courier bears peculiar sig
nificance, and is only the forerun
ner of a general out-spoken de
mand, in the near future. The un
propitious season which has blight
ed the ranges in many sections of
country, threaten us with a more
pregnant source of danger than t he
periodical visits of the wandering
sheep-herds, namely the driving of
large numbers of cattle from the
barren ranges to forage upon the
pasture lands of our resident stock.
There certainly should he a law to
prevent non-residents, who own
neither privilege or ranch in the
Territory, from driving herds of
cattle into the county to prey upon
the substance which rightfully be
longs to those who pay the taxes
and own the adjoining ranches. It
certainly seems right that domicile
alone should furnish the basis of
acts of citizenship. It is, there
fore, necessary that some laws
should be passed protecting the
rights of citizens and defining the
privileges of aliens.
