A CONSOLIDATION SCHEME.
OriYIOS making, which not long ago
promised to become at no distant day
one of the leading industries of that
beatific Miction of our Territorv, velept
Tucson, i falling into deserved disre
Iute. The editor of the admini-tra-tion
journal the "organ" a it i- called
politically is. a creature ot strange
giddiness. Just what lie wa- in the
original scheme of creation it i- now
difficult to determine. Certainly not
an ov&ter, for, a-hasl-een sententiou-ly
remarked, "the ovster knows when to
shut ui." He may hae been de-igned
for a bird, but through nome inexplica
ble perversion of the eolutionarv
force of nature he li kwraf en
dowed with the form and likene of
the genus homo, and to external ajv-
pcarance his structure i in harmony
with his environment. The develop
tnent of his nervous system, however,
appear to be a ca-e of atavim re
version to a primitive tv-c, a- ex
plained by the late Mr. Darwin. Hut
he is an intelligent creature, compared
with gubernatorial coun-elors who are
pervasive everywhere 111 the neighbor
hood of his Excellency. In order to
protect himself from contact with in
dividual pro-conventionites, whom he
loathes, he is accustomed to provide
himself with "opinions," which lit
ejects into ambient atmosphere, as the
cuttlefish does his inky secretion, for
the purpose of hiding himself from
view. Hut, alas' how ea-ily things
go wrong. Our interesting (from a
natural history point of view) friend's
provision for hi own security has
proven the agency for his destruction,
instead of ob-curing the view of the
pro-conventionites, the cloud of "opin
ion" in which he has recently inhumed
himself lias turned ujion him, as it
were, and served only for the obscura
tion of his own virion, thus prevent
ing him from seeing that he ha been
used as his primitive ancestor u-ed
the unfortunate cat, to withdraw the
chestnuts from the fire. It may be a
considerable time vet before this truth
dawntt upon him, and in the mean
while the cause of statehood moves
steadily onward, and is attracting such
a following that it is feared will mate
rially alter the character of all future
"opinions" promulgated from the iinti
Etatehoodites. It seems hardly neces
sary to remind the subject of our re
marks that "opinion" making without
a substructure of brain i a great curse
to the editor who does it. For true
and permanent prosperity an "organ"
editor must have a basis of brain, for
without it he attains to little more
distinction than did the monkey that
climbed the center pole.

CrjiBi-.rti.AXD, Md., Aug. 30. The
water from the Old Extra mine of the
Boston company, broke into the
Allegliany mine Consolidation at
Frostbtirgh, this morning. Thirty-five
men are known to be shut down In
the mine, but whether any lives are
lost j not known yet.
It is reallv touching to see with
what aviditv the small frv of the oi-!
ponents of statehood -wallowed the
fal-e bait thrown out bv the C'itien.
B a di-patch in another column it
will be -een that Attorney General
Miller hat rendered an opinion on the
legality of the constitutional conven
tion, and further gave an opinion on
the legality of the act- of the legisla
ture after (he 21-t of March. It is
c.idcnt that the Citizen knew of tins
opinion and it- iurport,and instead of
giving it a- it was rendered pro-tituteil
its column- by wilfully lying about
one of the points on which the opin
ion was rendered and kept silent about
the other. Hereafter it will be hard
work for that journal to induce the
public to believe anything it may say
on any important subject. We arc
sorry to see the Citizen thu- resort to
such method" to carry its points.
Brown, liesides the vexation of bdng
caught outin a lie, the Daily Krrru-ii
would suggest that, looking at the
matlcr merely from a business stand
point, honesty is the best policy.
