Attempted Train Wrecking on tho Gila
Vallv Globo & Northern Itallroad.
On Monday morning last, District
Attorney Jones, having been
to Safford on businoss, was returning
to Solomonville on foot walking
on the railroad, and at tho
point whero tho railroad crosses
tho Union Canal ho found that a
dastardly attempt had been mado
to wreck tho evening train by placing
two largo strong ties in tho
cattlo gaurd spanning tho canal.
Tho tics wero so placed that they
would not be noticed until it would
bo to lato to stop tho train as thoy
oxtended abovo tho track but about
a foot, tho lower end of tho ties
being firmly imbeded in tho bottom
of tho canal. Tho obstruction
had been placed thoro ovedontly
the ovening beforo with tho intention
of wrecking tho train on its
return to Ft. Thomas Sunday
night, but it was singularly fortunate
that tho train did not go
through that night.
Mr. Jones, after much effort succeeded
in i cmoving tho obstruction
and took a careful measurement of
shoo tracks about tho place No
arrests have been mado yot but
certain parties aro strongly suspectj
ed. Tho offense is a felony and
had tho tram been wrecked and
death caused thereby it would havo
beon murdor punishablo by death.
An effort is boing mado by the
district attornoy and tho sheriff to
ferret out tho propetrators of tho

How is it that Moxico is in prosperous
condition, in good credit financially,
developing her resources,
building railroads and fostering industrial
meeting her expenses and roducing
her bonded indebtedness, refunding
hor debt at a lower rato of interest?
Mexico is a free silver
country, on a silver basis, and yot
has no trouble in adjusting tho balances
of her foreign commerce
This admitted condition of hor industrial
and financial affairs is quito
a puzzle to thoso who aro constantly
proclaiming that tho United
States must conform her policy to
suit tho wishes of European countries
with which wo havo commercial
A goldito accounts for it by saying
that Moxico has always had
silver for her domestic standard
and unit of valne Then, tho
Moxican people can pay debts contracted
on a silver basis in silver
dollars and not lose their credit by
doing so. Not so with us. To pay
in ou cont silver dollars debts
which we agreed to pay in 100 cont
gold dollars would destroy this
credit and bring down npon us all
our indebtedness in one crushing
burden. Tho result would bo
bankruptcy, havoc and revolution.
Tho Galveston News claims that
this government' agreed to pay its
indebtedness in gold dollars. On
tho contrary, Congress has
refused to givo bonds
payable in gold coin. United
States Senator Mathows, doclared
in tho senate that the payment of
bonds, principal and interest, in
silver dollars of 412-1-2 grains
(standard) is not in violation of
public faith nor in derogation of
tho rights of the public creditor.
After the termination of tho war
foroignors who hold our currency
bonds, anxious to make an estimate
to their profits, asked Mr. Chase in
what kind of money their bonds
would bo paid. Mr, Chaso said
ho was not authorized to determine,
but that this Government
had always paid its debts in coin,
and ho presumed that these would
not bo an oxcoption to tho practice.
Wo insist that our Government
shall pay its dobts according to the
lettor and spirit of tho laws undor
which they woro created, and thus
hold tho scales of justice even
debtor and creditor.
