President Taft in one of his Florida speeches congratulat
ed the people of the South last week, upon the election of a
Southern man to the presidency, and predicted that Wilson's
administration would be one of the most prosperous in the his
tory of the country. Is this the some taft who was giving out
those calamity interviews just the day before the election?
The announcement is made that Turkey is ready to treat
for peace. In view of the fact that she has been licked off
the face of Europe, she ought to be willing to do almost any
thing to get the Balkans to let up.
One who has tried it says that ''Tucson's city jail is a
disgrace to the community," whereupon the Citizen advises
those who don't like it to obey the laws and keep out cf it.
China has been making a determined and apparently
successful effort to get away with a republic Months have
dassed and still the republic lives. The financiers of the
world hare done their best, but they have not cornered the
government. It is about time for this great good fellow gov
ernment of ours to extend a glad hand to those Chinese.
The bartenders of Chicago have formed a temperance
club. Woulnd't that jar an Arizona prohibition leader?
AfTuinaldo, who bet all he had on a single hand and lost,
has not been heard from for some time. Now he has broken
into the room again, pulled ud his chair and taken out a stack
of chips. His backers are the people of his country. He
should win and secure freedom lor the Filipino people.
The veterans at Wichita are scrapping over-the question
as to whether Lincoln said "Th Union is perpetual," or not.
That inscription is on the $25,000 Lincoli: monumeut in the
court house yard in that city and
the quotation can't be verified it will be chiseled out. Well,
Lincoln did all he could to make it perpetual, so the inscrip
tion may as well be allowed tostand until we see whether it
is perpetual or not.

Tncson with $60,000 as a Uhnstmas present was in keeping
with the well known liberality
pany The money was raised by the people of I ucson as a
bonus for the El Paso & Southwestern railroad company to
build into Tucson . The company accepted the bonus and a
few days ago sent its check for the full amount to the authori
ties of Tucson as a Christmas present. The Arizona corpora
tions are as a rule of a very high class. They pay their em
ployes the highest wages paid in the United States and take
excellent care of them otherwise, which is commendable in this
age of sweat shop tactics and harvester trust swindling.
Mrs Belle Gunness who, through the medium of poison
and an axe, attracted much attention to her murder farm in
Indiana, has been discovered in Canada, but no additional
achievements will be necessary to add to her fame as an exter
minator of human beings. Considering her opportunities and
the disadvantages under whicli she labored, she can be truth
lully classed as one of our foremost murderers. It is believed
that she had Kate Bender skinned a country block although
Kate was some murderer either at singles or doubles.

May be in Tombstone
A number of contraband Chinamen
are said to have crossed-the line and
headed this nay last week. Several
of the emugeled chinks are believed
by the immigration officials to be in
hiding in Tombstone and a strict
lookout is being bad.
It is reported a land of Chinese
crested the line near Naco, and their
present wrier about is a mystery al
though st-ver&l of them are telieved to
be in th's vicin'ty. Tbe Chinamen
had been badly treated by the rebels
and in some instances suffered at the
hands of some Mexican residents in
Sonora towns. They are claimed to
have decided on seeking refuge in tbe
U. S and Uke chunces on escaping
U. S. otBcials. Their pilgrimsges
were made at night and thus far have
eluded the officers.
Arizona Will Stand
One-third of Expense
It will cost I75.0JO to build a
bridge across the Colorado river at
lams, tut there is little prospect
that the national government will
put up moie than a third of that sum.
California and Arizona will have to
come across with the other $59,C09,
This is the information conveyed to
Governor Hunt in a letter from Con
gressman Carl Hayden.
The reclamation servfee bad the es
timate made and recommended that
the bridge be built with concrete pirrs
and stel girders. Such a bridge six
teen feet wide would cost $75,000.
In the same letter Congressman
Hayden stated that there would be
no difficulty in getting through con
gress a bill appropriating 65,0O'J for
bridges acro-e the GiU and SanJCarlo
rivers, on Iberian Carloa Indian res
ervation. These bridges are to be six
miles apart and the government will
probably buil I the connecting link of
road. As tbe bridges and rosd are to
be on a reservation, the government
will stand tbe entire expense of con
struction. Cochise Appointments
