to the gold monopolists has infu

remedy. Even then, so great is the

Called in extra session last Aug
ust, the Sherman silver bill, the re
peal of which was thought to be a
financial panacea, was wiped off the
statute book, and the regular session
so far has been frittered away by an
effort to pass a tariff bill which is
po covered with amendments by the
senate as to make the original
scarcely perceptible. It pleases
nobody but certain beneficiaries
and trusts who do not care for the
interests of the people. President
Cleveland ought either to ask
congress to retire, and save further
injury and disgrace to the democra
tic party, or pass a law which will
restore bimetallism, which the plat
forms of both parties in 1892 in
dorsed. There will then be a return
of good times.

The Associated Press dispatches
of Saturday last state that a bill
had passed the senate fixing the
price of desert lands at $1 .25 per
afcre, and authorized the refunding
ou ajyay.nients made in excess of
that price. If such bill becomes a
law it will return at least $50,000 to
this territory alone. This will era-
brace all classess of entries, origi
nal and final, made within the
boundaries of the Texas and Paci
fic forfeited railroad grant, prior to
Mnrch 3,1889. If such act becomes
a law it will prove a ble'ssing to
hundreds of Arizonans in these
liard times. As the bill originated

sition of the president before it can

No stock is taken by the territo
rial papers in the reported killing of
Robinson and Logan by Indians
gn Tiburon Island, and nothing
ibut t)ie most convincing proof of
his- death will lead to the belief
that the recent story of his killing
is not a fake of the fakiest kind.
Robinson's reputation in that
direction is decidely against him.
This incredulity and doubt as to
his death, so generally expressed,
will do much toward taking the
edge off the sensation Robinson
ihmay hope to create by setting a re
port "a' foot of his killing. The
onlv way he can redeem himself
froni the charge of fakerism now
laid against him, is to get killed in
earnest, but we wish him better

Rucker for the past week. The
dense smoke is plainly visible from
