Communication by Dr. Charles 11.
Editor Guardian. Tho law
bearing on tho practico of
is very plain. It reads: "No
ncrson shall Dractico medicine or
obstetrics in tho Territory of Ari
zona who has not been duly qual
ified and has lcsristercd proof of
such qualification with tho County
Thero aro several persons in this
valloy who are every day violating
this law by openly practicing medicine.
Tlioattendanco on cases of child
birth by women is excusable, but
when it comes to tho treatment of
diseases in general it surely should
be stopped. The consequenco of
this promiscous prescribing by
ignorant persons who know nothing
of tho naluie of the disease for
which thoy prcscube and still less
of tho drugs which they use, is frequently
of tho most serious nature.
Every day or two some poor littlo
lifo is sacrificed by these would bo
doctors. Thoy cram down the
tho throats of tho poor little
forcrs a lot of drugs as foreign to
the case as it is possible to bo, and
wait until tho littlo patient is dead
or nearly so before sending for a
physician. Then becauso the littlo
sufferer dies tho doctor is abused
unjustly when, if valuable timo had
not been lost fooling with these
ignorant persons tho littlo life
could havo been saved. These
pcoplo havo ovcry lifo so sacrificed
to answer for.
If common senso and justico to
tho children and humanity cannot
dictate tho right couiso to pursue
to thoso who aio carrying on
this practico then tho law should
bo put in force Tho punishment
is 8100 fino for each offense.
Many of the doses that tho poor
children havo to swallow savors
not only of ignoranoo and superstition
but filth. Ono gives broth
mado from a hen cooked feathers,
entrails and all for nausea and vomit
ing, and anothor gives tho scrapings
of a living pig's feel, mado into
pills and tho excroment applied
as a poultice for tonsilitis. Another
applies tho entrails of a pig,
torn from a living animal as a
poultice in peritonitis. While
such ignorant savagery is being
carried out the poor patient is allowed
to get as near death as possible
before tho physician is called
in, then if ho does manage to
restore tho child from tho jaws of
death it is only by superhuman efforts
thut ho succeeds.
I mako this complaint simply in
justico to tho community, and I
ask every well thinking man and
woman to take this matter into
There is not a physician practicing
in this valley to-day who has
not experienced everything I havo
said in his practico and well knows
that I havo not overdrawn tho picture.
Tho pcoplo of this valley aro too
enlightened to submit any longer
to this and it ib timo that they
to savo themselves and their
lovod ones from this sacrifice to
ignoranco and superstition.
As I said beforo, in child birth
cases thero is some excuso, but
thoro is certainly no excuso for
this general prescribing for every
disease that comes along, loosing
valuablo timo and curtailing the
usefulness of tho physician.

Slakes A Voiy Strong Plea Poi
Following is the full text of
Androw Carnegie's communication
cabled to the London Times.
"A very gi car power has declined
arbitration in a boundry dispute
with a very weak power, becauso
pait of tho territory in dispute has
boon settled by ifs citizens, whom
it is bound to honor and protect.
Tho great power might, howevor
havo offered to accept peaceful arbitration
of the whole dispute pro
vided a vamo was nrst agreed upon,
or that arbitration should fix
one upon tho settled territory,
continued possesion of which was
held to be necessary.
Thus would the principal of arbitration
have been upheld and
honor doubly protected, titlo pro
tected by honorable purchaso if
unexpectedly found defective, and
all lior citizens securely guarded.
Thero should bo littlo difficulty in
socuring arbitration in this form
through your able Ambassador at
Washington aided by tho good
offices of your kindred nation,
whoso services in your recent
with Nicaragua had so happy
Perhaps a prico could bo obtained
without arbitration, although
this is less probable, and
less dosirablo, sinco arbitration
is tho precious jewel of our ago,
and should not be discarded.
Those who have seen in it tho
Christian substitute for barborous
war, at least so far as boundry disputes
wero concerned, cannot but
believe that tho people of England
would favor arbitration with weak
and helpless Venezuela, thus rendered
compatible, in any evont,
with tho preforraanco with all her
honorablo obligations, and reduced
simply to a question of payment
to pofect her title if found defective
by impartial arbitrators, after careful
investigation. This is a matter
at present resting solely between
England and Venezuela, as
for as arbitratior is now.conccrned
but that it would boliaijed by tho
American people as a just mode of
settlement, and restore unclouded
friendship between tho two great
nations, should not
insure it less careful or less favor
In this crisis, when the passions
of men aro so wildly stirred, it is
impolitic to refer to the strained
relations between the two nations
that embrace all our race; but it
is all important for tho peoplo of
both lands to remembor that tho
deplorablo irritation, now existing,
has its solo caue in the refusal
of poaceablo arbitration upon
a point of honor, which, it is held,
renders tho continued possession
offaomo disputed territory necessary,
but which can readily bo
safeguarded and yet arbitration bo
mado tho instrument of poaceablo
and honorablo sottlcmont for all

A llock Thrown Through the Car Window
and Strikes A Woman and Child.
Last Tuesday night when tho
train had reached the road crossing
below Thatcher, some cowardly
scoundrel throw a rock weighing
about five pounds through
tho car window. Tho car was
nearly full of passengers, who wero
chatting merrily along when all at
once, crash went the window and a
largo boulder flow across the car
striking Mrs. Gcorgo Clark, a
daughter of Judgo Moorman, in tho
breast and almost knocking her
senseless, then striking her littlo boy
child, who was sitting beside hor,
on tho chin making an ugly cut
and bruising its littlo faco terribly.
As soon as tho situation was
realized Judgo Fonda and Tump
Fieeman rushed to tho rear end
of the car with the intention of
dropping off and capturing tho
cnlprot, but tho door was locked
and thoy could not got out, and
beforo the train could bo stopped
it had run sovoral hundrod yards
Had tho infuriated passengers
got hold of tho scoundrel it would
havo been about the costliest piece
of rock tin-owing ever indulged in
by that individual, and nothing
but the door being locked saved
him from capture.
Such work as this is too low and
contemptable to bo oven thought
of in a civilized community. Tho
company is making eveky effort to
fasten the crime upon the guilty
party, and it is believed thoy have
him located now. Whoever the
person is, if ho is anested and
found guilty ho will undoubtedly
receive tho full penalty of the

It appears that Luis and Miguel
Anton had had some troublo in
years gone bv: over what, is not
known, but at any rato tho two
bitter and avowed enemies.
Several times sinco that period tho
two hostiles camo very near squaring
accounts, but friends of either
always provonted a conflict.
Fiiday afternoon tho two met
by accident in a lonely spot, where
no ono was present to interfere.
Though tho two Indians wore alono
a small Indian lad a short distance
away, concealed by a mosquito
tiee, observed tho proceedings
which ho subsequent!' related
to tho head men of tho Pima vil
His story was that not a word
was spoken when the two enemies
met. Each instinctively know
that it Avas a battlo to tho death.
Anton looked helplessly about him
for s6me weapon. Luis saw tho
other was not armed and with a
triumphant shout ho dashed at his
opponent, who attempted to
for the weapon but missed.
A flash of steel followed by a moan
and Miguel fell to tho ground with
his life's blood flowing from a
wound in his neck. Tho murderer
watched the dying struggles of his
enemy, then coolly wiped tho knife
on tho tattered shirt of tho pros

TO SILENCE MILES.
Tho President and Secretary I.umont
Think tho Commanding General
Talks Too Huch.
A special to the Globe-Democrat
from Washington says: Tho President
and Secretary of War
are seriously considering the
advisability of silencing General
Miles. That they aro much incensed
by tho indiscreet talk in which
tho general has been indulging,
in regard to tho weakness of this
country's coast defense and tho
general inability to go to war with
assurances of success, can bo positively
stated. Had it not been for
tho high regard in which thoy both
hold him as a soldier and their indisposition
to inflict the indignity
of robuke on ono whoso services
to his country in tho past havo
been meritorious, thoy would havo
taken action beforo now.
But General Miles, by his latest
speech in Philadelphia, has
brought them to tho limit of their
forebcaranco and another such
break on his part will, in all probability,
lead to his suppression. In
his Philadelphia speech, not only
did General Miles blazon tho
defenseless condition of his
country, but tho whole undercurrent
of tho position taken by the
President. His chances for acquiring
tho titlo of lieutenant General
havo lessoned, it is thought, by
his recent utterances.

,DiTptt4.Gu'ARDiAN In your last
ijauo there appeared an article from
a Solomonvillc gentleman in which
ho charges tho county hoard of ex
aminers with "obnoxious actions'
in revoking a teacher's certificate
for immoral conduct. In justice to
tho board 1 want to say that thero
is a record of its proceedings in
tho office of the County School Superintendent,
and if any person do-
sires to know tho truth of this matter
they may call and cxamino
thoso records at any tunc. Tho
board has simply done its duty according
to the law and evidence.
Wc all (county officers especially)
have many pleasant duties, ana
some unpleasant ones to perforin.
Tho l evoking of this teacher's certificate
was indeed an unpleasant
one. But tho testimony of twelve
men, under oath, was that Mr. Foster
had conducted himself in an unprofessional
and immoral way
while engaged as teacher at San
Jose. Thero was not a word of
evidence to tho contrary. I therefore
say that it is unfair and un
just for any man to so harshly crit
icize tho action of the board in this
matter. I assert that not oven tho
gentleman from Solomonvillc
would if he wero to take the
troublo to inform himself with tho
facts in tho case.
"First cast tho beam out of thine
own eye; and then thou shalt seo
clcaily to cast tho moto out of thy
So far as I know, outsido of tho
recent casu, Mr. Foster is a gentleman
and a successful teacher in
many lines. His actions aro commendable
since his certificate has
been revoked. He has taken no
part whatever in cither of tho recent
"meetings at San Jose," not
even favoring thoso meetings with
Tn conclusion I desire to call the
attention of tho Solomonvillc gentleman
and a fow others on tho outside,
who havo been interesting
themselves in this matter, that
Graham county has a full sot of
school officers, elected according to
law, and I am of tho opinion that
thoy aro sufficiently intelligent,
and possess tho necessary qualifications
to successfully manage tho
school affairs and I would suggest
that you attend to your own business
and let ours alone.
