of tho cvonihg,Mrs. Weech,, as is
her custom, had placed a lighted
lamp in her bed room, on tho
second floor, and then went down
stairs to attend1 to somo household
duties. kIn about an hour she returned
to tho room above mentioned
Judgo of her surprise, when, on
opening tho door sho discovered
that in somo unaccountable way,
in her absence, a holo had been
broken in tho lamp bowl, tho oil
had become ignited and was throwing
a flood of flamo almost to tho
Mrs. Weech screamed for help
and at tho same timo rushed, into
tho room, snatched up tho burning
and dangerous lamp and started
for tho hall door leading onto tho
front poarch. Sho had not taken
more than thrco steps toward tho
door when tho lamp exploded,
covering her from her waist down
with burning oil, and throwing the
fiery liquid over tho carpets and
bed. Sho had presence of mind
enough, however, to throw the
lamp from her, endeavoring to
throw it to tho ground, but instead
of that it landed on tho poarch
which also began to blaze.
Mr. Charles N. Birdno, who was
in the parlor down stairs, heard
Mrs. Weech call for help whon sho
first discovered the burning lamp,
rushed to her assistance and mot
her in the bed room door envelop
ed in flames. Ho secured a piece of
carpet and quickly smothered out
the flames which, in a few minutes
more would undoubtedly havo
caused her death. Mr. Birdno next
turned his attention to the burning
carpets, bed and poarch, and with
tho assistance of Mrs. Weech was
not long in smothering out the

Celebrates His 74th Birthday.
President Layton celebrated his
74th birthday last Saturday at his
rcsidonco in Thatcher. All of tho
family and quito a number of
friends were invited, and at 2 p. m.
sat down to a most sumptuous dinner.
Tho afternoon and evening
was passed off in quiet games,

Mr. Layton, notwithstanding
his 74 summers is still halo and
hearty, and to all appearance is
good for a number of years yet.
His hlo has been an oventful one,
he being one of tho few survivors
of the Illinois volunteers, known
as the Mormon battalion, in the
Mexican war, and one of ths men
who hoisted tho first stars and

COUNTY, ARIZONA, MARCH 16, 1895.
CAUSE OF DEPRESSION.
Comprehensive Majority Iteport of the
Special Coinmittlee on the Agricultural
The majority of tho special
of tho house appointed to in
quire into tho causes of tho prevailing
agricultural depression has pre
pared a report in which it says:
"'It is'.unncce.'.siirv for the com
miteoto enter iito or dwell upon
the fact that agriculturo is depressed
in every branch of this most
important industry; that tho
values of land and iarm surround
ings unless under exceptionally raro
cumimuiis, iuivu ueprecjuica
as tho purchasing power of the
dollar has increased. But Whilo tho
values of tho property owned by
tho American farmers have
in thirty years from nearly ono
half of tho total wealth in I860 to
less than ono fourth in 1890, of
which 30 per cent is now under
mortgage; taxes havo steadily increased
and debts now require four
times tho labor to bo paid than was
then required. Tho purchasing capacity
of tho dollar to secure tho
farmer's land and his produce has
increased four fold, whilo tho power
to pay his taxes and debts havo
remained at a standstill.
In 1873 wheat sold from $1.55 to
82.25 a bushel, according to
ford's almanac. In Now York in
1894 it sold at 50 cents.
Class legislation of the worst
character encumbers tho statute
books and has been carried on to
tho detriment of agriculture and
its dopendent industries for thirty
years, culminating in tho crime of
tho age,the demonetization of silver
"Tho demonetization of silvor was
a bold stroke in tho intrest of cap
ital that has reduced tho valuo of
every product in tho world. This
is conclusively proven by tho fact
that just as silver has depreciated
in like proportion havo all other
values fallen in tho scale. Silvor
bullion to-day has tho capacity to
purchaso as much wheat, cotton,
pork and corn and land, and every
other commodity that it over had,
therefore tho depreciation of the
white metal simply means tho depreciation
of every nrticlo under
the sun with one single oxception,
the gold of tho shylock."
Tho tariff system of taxation is
not only unequal, but as for tho past
thirty years administered in this
country, is most unjust to tho consumer
and has built up trusts, combines
and gigantic corporations that
havo not only amassed immonso
wealth at tho expense of tho people
but havo assumed to control and
direct legislation so as to perpotuato
their power and gratify their greed.
Tho tariff bears with undue
weight upon the producer of agricultural
staples,as it forces him not
only to buy in the dearest markot,
but to sell in open competition
with tho world's lowest prices.
Agricultural depression is still
further augmented by the sale of
futures on our stock exchanges
where tho grain gamblers grow
rich by farming tho telegraph wire
and selling wind, whilo honest and
industrious toilers on tho prairies
reap tho whirlwind. Food adulterations
add millions annually to
the farmer's losses and compel him
to meet in competition tho thief.
To theso might bo added other causes,
but tho principal ones to which
agricultural depression and stagnation
in trade are duo havo been
Tho remedy lies in remedial legislation,
and until that is secured
relief will not como permanently.
To secure relief wo suggest:
First-That silver should bo
at tho ratio of 1G to 1.
Second-That so long as tho pro-sent
unjust and unequal system of
protection continues agriculture
should receive its just proportion,
and as -this cannot bo secured by a
protective tariff, that a bounty on
exported agricultural'staplcs should
bo allowed similar to that on fish
in 1815, and for which John C. Calhoun
Third-That gambling in futures
should be prevnted by law.
Fourth-That a national pure food
law should be enacted.
