The campaign being made by Senator Henry F. As
hurst is said to be a masterful effort. Mr. Ashurst is a
polished speaker, he is always a gentleman in presenting
his arguments and views, whether it be in a campaign, in
the halls of the senate, or in social conversation. He has
responded to even call of the state during his five years
in the senate; he has plead the cause of Arizona and her
great interests on many occasions and on several occa
sions has attracted the attention of the nation by his cast
igation of those who undertook to assail the citadels of
Democracy. One of the criticisms that has been aimed at
Senator Ashurst, and about the only one, except the futile
attempt to make light of his eloquence, is that he mailed
excerpts from the Congressional Record showing proceed
ings, of congress of special interest to this state and what
the senator had to do with it, under the frank of the sen
ate. This information was mailed io the i-oiiaiitucnts of
Senator Asliurst after it had been approved for free
transportation by the postmaster general of the United
States. The senator will be here tomorrow night and we
predict that he will draw the biggest crowd that has ever
assembled here to listen to a political speech and that all
who hear him will be well entertained and correctly in
formed of the important political issues of this campaign.

said wliat they thought ot parties that were circulating
reports about certain officials that they could not sub
stantiate. A part of the report follows :
"We regret to find that the statements that the Par
don Board of the state have pardoned some of lie men
We condemn, m unsparing terms, the growth m this
community of the custom of newspapers and individuals
to blacken and malign without sufficient foundation of
fact. This condition should be speedily and effectively
discountenanced both by public sentiment and approprite
legislation. Slander and libel are out among the inalien
able rights of citizenship, and frequently lead to grave
breaches of the public peace."
Cochise County never had a better set of candidates
than on the Democratic county ticket this year. Even
one has the ability to keep the county in the progressive
column as it has been so long. One of the distinct Features
of the county government under the control of the Demo
tratic party is there has never been the least taint of graft.
From the least to the liighest office the slogan is "busi
ness that counts in the direction of material interests to
all classes." Vote the straight Democratic ticket in Co
chise county and maintain the high standard of efficiency
that now prevails in the county government.
Cochise county in all of its history never had a more
conscientious or more able county assessor than E. A.
Hughes and she has had many able men in that position.

INTER MOUNTAIN RATE
HEARING NOVEMBER 30
Phoenix. Ktu. Oct. 23. The Ari
zona Corporation Commission has
telegraphic ad ice from Washington
indicating that tie lnterinountaln
irate hearing will be opened Noieiu-t
ber 20 at Chicago, and continued at
tfall Lake City and Saa Francisco. ,
Th general question of rate from
the East to Arizona and other Inter-
mountain mates baa been before the
Federal Commission, the Congress
o( the United Slates and tariuu
courts, (or the past ten years. Re
cently the Interstate Commerce Com
mission found that water competi
.ion belueeu the Atlantic Seaboard
and the Pacific coast had been so re
uuced as to remove the force that the
transcontinental railroads had here
of ore relied upon to Justify lower
.ates to the Pacific coast than to in
termediate pointfc. Thereupon, the
ailroads. Instead of reducing the
i ates to Arizona io the basis ot the t
coast rates, increased the coast
rates generally, such lncreasea
amounting to as high aa one hundred ,
per cent. Increases were also sought
to be made at intermediate points.
A vigorous protest went up from the
shippers ot the entire United States,
resulting i nine Washington Commls-
I falon holding up the proposed ad
ranees. In the meantime, Reno,

Following the Intermountain rate
hearings, the Interstate Commerce
Commission will hear, at Phoenix on
December 11, the complaint of the
Arizona Commission against inter
state passenger rales. The history
of this case goes back some two
eam. at which time the railroads
jperatlng in Arizona attempted to
increase rates from all points east
to all points in Arizona an average
of about four dollars a ticket. The
Arizona Commission protested these
advances and showed at a hearing ot
the case in Chicago that the rates
from Eastern points to Arizona were
then from $12 to $15 higher per pas
senger than to points In Idaho, Mon
tana, Oregon and Washington for
equal distances. The Washington
Commission refused to allow the
roads to increase their rates to Ari
zona and Indicated In Its opln?on
that the rates to Arizona should be
based upon a three cent per mile
rate applying In New Mexico and
Arizona. The State Commission
thereupon filed a petition with the
Interstate Commerce Commission
praying that the rates from all East
ern states to all points in Arizona
be placed upon a parity with rates
under like conditions prevailing to
points In other Intermountain states
to the North. The case Is of con
siderable Importance to everyone In

Douglas. Ocu 21. Local United
Slates Customs officers have seized
195 bead of cattle on the ground that
they were illegally brought to this
country from Mexico. The herd was
crossed last Thursday by Irregular
methoda after the owners, who are
aid to be Bob Lee, Stewart Hunt
and C. E. Tracy, had been unable to
make satisfactory arrangements with
the Mexican officials for crossing
The herd, when It waB originally
brought from the south, numbered
214 head, but Mexican soldiers or of
ficials seem to have got away with
19 bead. For a week the cattle were
held at the border under a guard of
soldiers day and night while the
owners negotiated Ineffectively with
the Mexican officials for their ex
portation to this country. Dr. C R,
Graham, federal veterinarian, was
sent for and came, but was unable
to pass the cattle because they never
came. They came from one of the
so-called Infected districts.
Finally the cattle were started
south again, but for some reason
there was a sudden change In plans,
and the cattle was brought north
again and are alleged to have been
passed to this side without knowl
