Let All Arizona
Heed Thanksgiving Day
From time immemorial it has been the custom of the
Christion wotld to annually consecrate a day to Thanksgiving.
It is an occasion that takes on a universal aspect and makes
mankind akin, when regard ess of past vicisitudes, existing dis
tress or impending disaster all
up thanks to the .Benign Almoner; it is not a day of contri
tion but, rather, an occasion for rejoicing and making public
recognition ol heavenly blessings.
As we have prospered and been spared from want the
ligors of the elements, trom pestilence or death, so should we,
contritely, offer thanks for the manifold blessing thus enjoyed.
Arizona, to the exclusion of the balance of our great do
main, will be justified in offering up generous thanks; we hare
been blessed through our individual and concentrated en
deavors and permitted to emerge from a condmou ot vassalage
to a sovereign state of progress and prosperity; we have es
caped a state of hon lage that harrassed enterpriec. worked a
hardship on mankind and retarded honest endeavor; from a
disagreeable situation we have escaped to the pmacle of state
hood and entered the ranks of progress; we are applauded by
the world for our conservative, Jar-reaching individual guar
dianship for man, esta e and i-ruicip e, with which we sur
rounded ourselves by the adoption of the gr atest state con
stitution ever written, following which, as if by inspiration, the
people chose wisely in a state executive and a state judicary
the bul ark of successful governme t. Then, why should not
Arizona offer up thanks freely and fully?
Our mines are producing beyond the expectations of th
most sanguine our herds are .healthy and increasing; the hus
bandman is reaping rich reward; our numbers are being aug
mented by a desirable citizenship and health prevatls through
out the grand state oi Arizona
I he Pkospeotok points with prida to the fact that every
industry in Cochise county is flourishing; our citizens 111 gen
eral are prosperous and contented and those of Tombstone are
rich in self-reliance, having an
the grand old camp.
Then, on tomorrow, it is
generally, individually and as one, offer up hearty thanks for
the manifold blessings so generously bestowed during the year
When Gabe Adams cruly murdered Jack Bruner, Satur
day night, at Huachuca Siding, a report of which is made on
our first page, the incident furnishes food for deep thought
To whom shall be attributed
Adams admits his crime toward mankind and disobedience ot
God's teachings. The age in which we live impels us to pure,
manly thought and just reckoning. But can we reconcile our
selves to the depth of infamy and self-restraint that permitted
the taking of an innocent man's life, the actuation of which
the derelict of the law attributes to a whim of rum? Shall
such a plea serve to thwart juHice. put at naught our laws that
guarantee equal rights to all, special privileges to noiie? The
Pbospeotob hopes for and expects a just dispensation. This
an age when Arizona must live up to every fundamental prin
ciple vouched for by our constitution; our citizenship must be
the bulwark of our statutes-
Adams' unerring aim admittedly without the flimsiest
provocation the result of which when he is brought to realiza
tion oi his crime cause tears to ffow and banish bragadocio,
laid low an innocent and unoffending man, made a widow of a
loving and devoted wife, bereft three small children of a pains
taking parent. Those of his intimates regret Brun-rs' un
timely taking off. for he was regarded as a man of unblem
ished character. This is an episode that affects the public: a
condition that claims remedial
alleged humanitarians cannot efface.
The statutes of Arizona, as made and provided, for he
Bup ress of crime, the Prospector contends, are equal to any
emergency; the laws are amp e and those entrusted to their
execution competent and sincere. Will the law of the land
prevail will the finding of the jury and the decree of the court
The desolation wrought by such shocking circumstances,
indeed, appal the huvabiding citizen. The laxity of law, orsys
tem.'to govern similar maniacal tendencies or apply restraining
influpnees is probably admitted. To some th rigid enforce
ment of capital punishment is held as adeterent and the only
remedy. The matter seriously commends itself to the wisdom
of public judgment. Let the law prevail.

fishes that may come to his festal
