OFFICIAL PAPER OF COCHISE COUNTY.
Kansas permits its women to vote,
and the trial thus far, has proven
very satisfactory. It is claimed that
they exercise a wholesome influence in
the affairs of government.
Am American who belonged to the
Knights of Labor organization in Chicago
spoke out in one of their meetings, after
the red flag ol the Anarsjiists had been
placed by them above the stars ana
stripes of our country. "I am," said he,
"a Knight of Labor. I joined the order
because 1 believed in the rights of labor
and thought by so doing, I could aid in
protecting them and could advance the
interests of my fellow workmen. But I
am neither a Socialist nor an Anarchist,
I love my country and its institutiur.s.
I had no great faith in the organization
of a political labor party, but I stood with
my fellows until they submitted to be
dictated to by Socialists and Anarchists.
Then I separated from them, and here I
am tonight to give my voice and in
fluence for John A. Roche and the entire
Republican ticket. Under the clorious
stars and stripes I fought to maintain the
integrity of the institutions of my coun
try, and I will never under the red flag
of the commune fight to destroy them."
Some one, we presume it is our old
friend, Rev. G. L. Pearson, has sent us
a copy of that uphoniously named sheet,
"The Tombstone Epitaph" and other
Arizona papers. We judge from their
appearance and matter that Arizona is a
"right smart chance" of a Territory and
that Tombstone does not mark the
home of dead men. We conclude how
ever from the tone of the editorials, cor
respondence and advertisements, that a
little "prohibitory amendment" would be
a good thing to mix with Arizoniait poli
tical and social life. Vernon (Mich.)
Interlake. This comes from a State
that voted down a prohibition amend
ment by a majority of nearly 20,. jo.
Arizona does not do business that way,
we practice what we preach. Michigan
with all her grand rivers, and pine forests
shouted lustly for prohibition, and then
availed themselves of the first oppor
tunity to put it to' sleep by the above
mentioned unprecedented majority. We
do not shout for a strict enforcement of
the Maine liquor law in this Territory,
but when we conclude to take a vote on
the proposition, it will not be shown to
the world that we have 20,000 more
vagabonds in our Territory than we have
Evidently the Cameron ring, backed
up by a class ef men who desire in ob
tain possession of the public domain of
Arizona, will succeed in ousting C. E.
Dailey from the position of Register of
the Tucson Land Office. Mr. Dailey
has been an honorable, conscientious
public servant, and as such has succeeded
in giving o(Tense to the antj o land
cormorants, whose aim and desire has
been to float bogus and fraudulent land
grant claims. Our fair Territory is
marked and branded from north to
south and from east to west by these
infamous fraudulent land grants, and the
men who block and bar the way to the
consutnation of these damnable schemes
are Register Dailey and W. A. J. Sparks,
the Land Commissioner, this old veteran
has also incured the everlasting dis
pleasure of these land sharks by his
fearless and sturdy rulings in the land
office. Every fertile acre in this pro
mised land is covered by a grant of some
pretender or another, and every man or
set of men who stand in the way of their
blackmailing schemes has the sword of
the Cameron ring held threatening above
his head. Thefe fraudulent pretenders
are blocking the wheels of Arizona's
progress, they, next to the murderous
Apaches, stand as an immovable wall to
bar our way to prosperity and develop
ment. For years our government at
Washington have listened to and served
this clan of land grant grabbers, but with
the advent of Sparks to the position he
now occupies, their days of fraudulent
land entries and bribery came to an enc
Mr. Dailey is a worty deciple of Com
missioner Sparks, and since he has been
Register of the Tucson office comfirma
tion and applications for land grant bills
have been few and far between, but the
Washington ring are too strong for even
the administration, and the head of a
worthy official must fall at their bidding.
We have the utmost respect for a worthy
official, let his politics be what they may,
but an administration which permits
such men to dictate as who its public
servants shall be, is unworthy ef either
Republican or Democrat.

as did also the guests and servants of the

Pittsburg, April 12. The wholesale
arrests of employees of the Pan Handle
railroad for robbing freight trains, con
tinues to be the engrossing topic among
railroad men and citizens. Superinten
dent Taylor's office was besiegeaom
early this morning by men in search of
employment, many of whom were given
employment. The road is now fully
equipped and there is no delay in the
movement of freight. No arrests have
been reported since last night. Speaking
of the probable conviction of the men
now in jail, Special Agent Rue said this
morning that, of the sixty men now un
der arrest, there wero not more than one
or possibly two, who stood any chance of
being shown not guilty. A bill in
troduced last night in the State Legisla
ture which is intended to cover" such
cases as the railroad car robberies,
was brought to light in this city yester
day. The bill Is in the shape of an
amendment to the penal code. At pie
sent there is no specific law for breaking

Helena, (Mont) April 12. Advices
have been received by Adjt Gen. Turner
of this city, that some dissatisfied miners
at Anaconda have organized riotous de
monstrations for to-morrow. A large
numbar of deputy sheriffs has been sworn
in anl armed with Winchesters to pre
serve the peace. The dissatisfaction is
owning to a question of wages.
Later advises to-night to the Indepen
dent are that the strikers had planned to
seize the arms and ammunition of the
Territory to-night but they were quietly
removed to Helena. The outline of the
plan of general action, was that they
would, in the morning, assasinate the
suprintendent and break up the camp, if
neccessary, firing the works, the largest
plant in the country and belonging to
Haggin & Tevis, of San Francisco. There
is great but suppressed, excitement in
