Tub government hi-s recently cent
back several batches of laborers who
came over from Europe under labor
contracts. This is carrying the princi
ple of protection to its logical conclu
sion and will be a welcome application
of the doctrine.
The one and only objection to the
in (lux of British gold, and the conse
quent control of some of our great in
dustries, is that the interest, or divi
dends, on these vast sums will go to
England and le a constant drain on
this country, and in time will have the
same effect on the United States that
absenteeism has had on Ireland.
The first gun in the constitutional
convention election h been fired by
the Democrats of Maricopa county, b
call having been issued for the assem
bling of the Democratic Central Com
mittee of tliat county early in Septem
ber, to take such steps as are deemed
necessary to prepare for the election.
That's the kind of politics we like
no skulking behind the sjHscious cry of
"non-partisan." It is now in order for
the Republican Central Committee of
Cochise to tike up this Democratic
A French scientist says he has
found the elixir of life claims that he
has experimented with it on his own
person and experienced its beneficial
action, lie is an old man, tottering
on the edge of the grave, and if he
can restore his youth it will prove his
claim. His elixir is composed of cer
tain portions of living organisms,
which are to be triturated in a mortar
and swallowed immediately. If this

modern science it will cause a break
ing up of all religious ideas, consign
heaven and hell to the lumber garret
of exploded ideas and ojen up to man
kind possibilities that have heretofore
been considered vagaries of madmen.
Councilman Hakdv, in a letter to
the Phenix Herald, makes some very
ugly charges against the Democratic
officials, among them that the Super
intendent of Public Instruction got
hold of a lot of Territorial money and
gambled it off; that Governor Zulick
made an offer to pardon any one out
of the prison at Yuma for a money
consideration, and after some of the
prisoners had paid their money the
pardons were not forthcoming; that
the. cost of removing the insane pa
tients from Stockton to Phenix was
paid twice, and other charges. Mr.
Hardy signs his name, and if the
accused parties wish to disprove his
charges they can do so by prosecuting
him for criminal libel. It is to be
hoped, for the credit of the Territory,
that the Democrats will take some ac
tion to disprove these allegations, and
if they fail should join the other crim
inalj at Turn.
