JUDGE SMITH.
VT-rn a county is selecting a District
itt.mfv t should operate on the same
n;iC ,pie that a private individual doei.
i p r.vate individual doe not cboBe a
jec od or third ratelawjer when he can
f scare a firot rate one. This ia precisely
.i situation in Piraa oounty in this
, vt " The Republican convention
';.jj'SCid ,n nomination a man who
s .knowledged to be the peer as a
uasrior and an advo." . e of any lawyer
the I erritory, or Ob the coast for that
filter, for the ofliee of District Attor;
. , r He is & men who has a reputation
,,t!!ihed by tears of successful prac-
a-id his ability and integrity are
unquestioned.
T!u aly point which the Democratic
, ..in,ti,,.Star,attempt8tomake ngainst
iig.- Suiith is that he has been em-
i ed I' the railroad company. It is
, .t' .r.ablc whether thisisan objection.
;:, Smith is employed by the rail-
r.,ii.uipauyf.irthe very reason that
1 .uii i aoty should employ him as Dis-
t: 't Attorney, liecause he is an able and
kkjlieJ lawyer. They would not employ
; .c :( he was a poor one. The railroad
-.iso aiTe likely to be involved in liti-
gst-.on with the county than is L. Zeck-
tsierf Co, HnJion 4 Co., the First
Nodosal Bank or any other corporation
(1 ng business in the county, and if it is
propo-vd to give the important office of
Ii.stn. t Attorney to a lawyer who has
j clients, a briefless barrister, we will
t are a mighty poor stick. Judge
PiL.t!. understands the duties of the
, ffie i if District Attorney, and like any
, tl-r conscientious lawyer, when the in-
t -efts of tbe county and any other
c ni l.r might have should conflict, the
i ;Ler client would have to look else-
vf-e fur counsel. To urge such objec-
t ins a-s those rained by the Star is to
Vive the interests of the county in
e tree of incompetents. The Citizen
s j.r sed to such a courhe. We believe
. county's entering the list and
tj;ui:gtbe best talent and the great-
. -t amount of ability possible. On this
-ttln-re can be no question between
t .1.', Smith and J. C. Perry. The lat-
is a young lawyer, inexperienced,
-a 1 1 particular claims to' ability or
-!.. arning and wholly unqualified
tb- grave responsibilities of public
c iis'Il r and prosecntor.
TLr-e is nothing that will conflict
i. L Judge Smith's faithful discharge
f tbe daties of the office of District
At! v and for the county to fail to
svai'. itself of his services would be an
act of incomprehensible folly.
HON. J. F. XXAFP.
Pima county has never been ungrate-
'iL It has heretofore recognized the
rvices of its friends upon every occa-
e n when opportunity offered. To do
:Lerwie would be to merit condemna-
..,2 Hon. J. F. Knapp, ono of the
iiepuhhean nominees for the Council,
. as cla.-ms upon Pima county outside of
is acknowledged ability and fitness for
office, which entitle him to the suf-
i if our jtoplx. Two years ago
M' Knapp represented Yuma county
n tie Assembly, and was the presiding
T 'OT of that body.
It is no disparagement of the services
if ttnTs to say that upon every occa-
si' ii Mr. Knapp acted and voted in the
iittn-ft of Pima county. He was al¬
ways our faithful friend.
Hi- is now a resident of Pima county,
and has been nominated for the Council.
He is a oung man of ability, acquaint
ed with affairs aud possessed of valuable
li-gishttive experience. In the Council
he wouij take a position of influence,
and Ins services would be of the greatest
value to the county. Were there no
considerations of gratitude for past
serv.csit wnld still bo for the best
iuterst of the county to elect Mr.
Ki.pp.
Ihe Ti itnbiitone P.epublican is evident¬
ly de tcrmined to make Tevis writo anoth¬
er si.-ch by publishing m advance ex-
t-a?t'rum theoaehe has already writ-
t- - I-vis was aver here in Tucson several
s.r and frequented the Star office.
Vf in inclined to the opinion that
htTet -vrote that celebrated speech
is iet to be delivered in Tomb-
If he is really the author, we
..-. lUte Tombstone, for Barret is
!i,. writer, and if Tevis only adds the
iiiarj part to Barrot's produc-
' -i!! i- a rare treat. In tact we
' mil have to go over and hear
i jiu'uliKbed extracts like the
1 .-, a inch the stenographic re-
: ic Republican furnishes, are
' By some people I am called
;.ms; by others, Captain Tevis;
. Tim Tevis; and again by others,

' ,i'p people of Cochise oounty can
rp I'evis at home as a rare
' iri.fitv, we cannot imugine.
OINEKAL CROOK.
Great things were nmlicted nf tlm
return of General Crook to this Territo-
; ry. The way he has taken hold of mat-
I tern and the practical directions he ha
, given indicate that these prediction
are coming true. Thore is about the
I orders issued by the now commnndant
of this department a consciousness of
power to cope with the difficulties.
This cannot fail to impress the Ravages
who have not forgotten General Crook's
past record iu this Territory. We have
not the pleasure of a personal acquaint¬
ance with General Crook, but the steps
he has taken commend him to the con¬
fidence of all citizens of Arizona who
are interested in tho vast mineral, agri¬
cultural and grazing interests of the
Territory. We know from past expe
rience that fear of punishment rather
than hope of reward inspires the savago
breast, and General Crook evidently un
deritands the character of the Indiana
he is dealing with.
When the Indian outbreak occurred
a little more than a year ago, the Alia
California, which usually takes a very
correct view of Arizona affairs, ex¬
pressed the opinion that General Will-
cox was not competent to cope with the
situation. We reproduce from the same
paper the followirg comments upon
General Crook:
Tho great common sence embodied
in General Crook' directions for the
care and training of the Indians must
commend itself to every one who yester¬
day read the plan he has mapped out for
governing and protecting the redskins.
The Indian scouts are to be employed as
a temporary police force and to perform
as well as to inspect the various indns
tries demanded of the IuUiaui by the
Department If any one can civilize an
Indian General Cr ck is the man; for he
is paying considerable attentiou to the
peculations of the Agents and their
treatment of tho Indians on their sever¬
al reservations. General Crook under¬
stands perfectly that tbe terms "Indian
Agent" and "petty larcenisf are some¬
times synonymous, and he does not
desire to see the Apnche and theUte die
out in the dirt of igL ranee while there
is a chnce of reclaiming them and mak-
theni industrious.
The commanding officers are to show
the Indians the advantage of civilized
government bs contrasted with their
own barbaric customs. There is a heap
of sense in General Crook, and we must
all hope that his Indian policy may be
ancceisful. lie has seen them killed by
the hundred and carried his life in his
hand for months together. His long
experience seems to have convinced
him that they are to be treated as being
in ignorance, and it is our duty, as a
people, to try and elevate them.
Of course this will maktt the Iudian
nng very sick, at which every honest
American will rejoice exceedingly. The
Agent who has been robbing the In¬
dians nnd cultivating their natural
lazinest; who has given them cin and
robbed them of their blankets, is not
very likely to admire General Grook's
mode of procedure. That officer tells
us that after a thorough and exhaustive
examination of the Reservations, ho
finds a perfect, we may add, a rational
distrcst of the whites. America has
been cursed by a great many evil cor¬
porations; no national man would de¬
fend Boti Tweed, the Star-route people
or hundreds of other hotbeds of
crime, but all of the rings that
ever circled round this great country
tha Indian ring is J probobly the
vilest General Crook is try ing to break
it up. If he succeeds he will have dona
as much good as the "Father of his
Country" did.
E. W. ARAM.
Ths Republican nominee forjudge of
Probate is no stranger in this Territory
He hn been a resident of Arizona for
tho past six years and the respect in
which he is held where he has reiided
tells the character of the man. He is a
lawyer of ability and experience and in
the ofEce of Probate Judge would dis¬
charge its duties faithfully nnd honestly.
It is important at this time that Mr.
Aram should be elected on account of
his superior legal ability. It is highly
probable that the coming legislature
will be cilled upon to enlarg the pow¬
ers of Probate Judges and give them
jurisdiction in minor civil casep, misde¬
meanors and the lesser crimes to, as to
relieve the Diatrict Court of less impor¬
tant litigation and mako it poaiible for
the District Judge to clear up the
calender at each term of Court.
As it is now the criminal cases occupy
the attention of the court to the exclu¬
sion of important civil cats. This
works great hardships to litigants, and
in many cases results in virtual denial
of justice and confiscation. This svil
should be remedied, and if the Legis-
latura affords the only remedy in its
powsr, it is important that the office
of Probate Judge, upon which new and
important duties will devolve, should be
filled by men competent to discharge
thtm.
However pleasant a gentleman and
honest a man Judgs Wood, the Demo¬
cratic nominee, may be, he is neither
fitted by experience or education for
these new responsibilities.
Mr. Aram, on the other hand, is not
only capable of discharging tbe present
duties of tha office, but any addition¬
al that it may become necesfary to
place upon it Under tho circumstances
'he wlie course in tbe interest of publio
business is to elect Mr. Aram.

Tki Ohio election was not such a dis
astroua Republican defeat as the first
reports led us to imagine ana an analysis
of the voto leaves no question that tne
political status of Ohio upon national
issues is still Republican. The Demo¬
cratic majority will exceed 10,000 but
liltle. The figures show that this result
is not so much attributable to a change
as to lack of interest on the part of Re-
tmblicans. There was no actual gain
in the Democratic vote. The apparent
gains were in the large cities like Cin-

JUDGE PORTER'S CANVASS.
Reports from all sections of the Terri¬
tory indicate that Judge Porter will bo
the next delegate in Congress from this
Territory. His superior fitness for tho
position is conceded even by Democrats,
and he will receive many votes from the
opposite party on that account.
The Judge has breen indefatigable
iu his canvass, has visited all the south¬
ern and middle tier of counties already,
being entlmniiif tically received every¬
where. His addresses have demonstrat¬
ed that he has thoroughly considered
tbe needs of the Territory, and under¬
stands what a delegate u expected to
da
The Judge's speeches are able and
convincing and show what can be ex¬
pected of him as the representative of
the large and growing interests of the
Territory.
The people of Arizona are not dis¬
posed to continue the vacancy in tho
office of Delegate by re-electing Hr.
Oury, who confesses his own inability to
crvehis constituency. As a represen¬
tative he has proved a complete failure,
and under the circumstances shows bad
taste in being a candidate for re-election,
It was a fortunate circumstance at
the late fire that the Hanta Cruz Com.
piny had reached the city with their
water. But for that fa;t the fire would
have been much more di.ast.rouH than it
ls. If under the present imperfect
way of using the water so much benefit
was derived, we can expect much great¬
er security to all kinds of property
whan the water works aro comploted
and in full working order with hydrants
aud hose for use in case of fire. R. X.
Leatherwood is entitled to much credit
for the energy and enterprise he dis¬
plays in pushing this work. It is to
such public spirited and eagicious busi¬
ness men that Tucson will owe its fu¬
ture importance.
Hos. J. F. Ksapp will receive a large
Democratic bupport in his canvars for
the council in recoguiton of his past
valuable services to Pima county. Mr.
Knapp's abilty and fitness are also rec¬
ognized, and it is men of skill and ex¬
perience that Pima county wants iu
tbe coming Legislature to see that our
interests are not slighted. No batter
man can be found in the county to
look after our interests iu the council.
That he will be elected there can be no
doubt Ho will get the solid Republi¬
can vote aud the support of many Dem¬
ocrats who consider local interests as
important.
Judge Smith's superior fitness for the
positioi of District Attorney is so ap¬
parent that he will be elecled by an
overwhelming majority. The Judge is
not only an able lawyer and a safe coun¬
sellor in whose hands the county's cases,
whether criminal or civil, will be safe,
but ho is a polished orator and a gentle¬
man of commanding address who as the
official representative of Pima county
will do us honor.
The Yuma Sentinel, commenting up¬
on the prison investigation, thus alludes
to the course pursued by the Governor
in relation thereto: "The action of Gov¬
ernor Tritle in this matter has called
forth the highest praise. Called upon
aa he was to perform certain duties he
found himself with those duties plainly
prescribed, vet without any method or
machinery provided. He has labored
faithfully in the investigation, and has
impressed all who came in contact with
him as a man of rare, judgment
and executive ability."
We are pleased to learn that Governor
Tritle has appointed Hon. J. W. Davis,
Probato Judge in Pinal county to fill
the vacancy occasioned by the removal
of Judge Wrattin. This appointment
was made wholly without solicitation on
the part of the appointee and we are
satisfied that it will be heartily approved
by tbe citizens of Pinal county where the
new judge's integrity and worth are
universally recognized. Tho Citizen
tenders its congratulations to the new
judge.
Jcdoe Hooves has authorized us to
denv the statement publiBhfd in tbe
Star and extensively circulated by the
Democratic press of the Territory to
the effect that he was opposed to the
election of Judge Portar as delegat in
Congress. Tho statement was wholly
unauthorized and untrue. The Judge
does cot consider taking an active part
in politics as consistent with his posi¬
tion iu the bench.
Hughes of the Star thinks that the
tramps originated when the Demeerats
were turned out of office in low). Ihey
went onto the road rather than work
for a living. Well, we will odmit that
tramps, as well as other dangerous
elements, are principally made up of
Democrats and we are glad that tho
proprietor of our Democratic contem-
pory agree with us as to this fact.
TnE Star has undertaken tho hercu
lean t3sk of convincing the people of
Pima county that they do not vant for
the office of District Attorney a man
whom auv private corporation would
employ. That principle would bar every
able lawyer and givn the county only
tbe refute. We propose that Pima
county take the first pick.
We have an-cditionof Porter's speech
delivered in this city, in pamphlet form
which we ask all intelligent meu to read,
if thev did not hear it, and compare it
with the weak effort of Delegate Oury
last night. No intelligent man will fail
to acknowledge tho superior qualifies
tions of Judge Porter.
The Star's attacks on Judge Smith
are nowerleas to hurt him or his chances
for election. The people propose to
have as competent a lawyer aa any oi
the parties with whom they may have
litigation. They know Judge Smith is
much the ablest lawyer and they will
elect him by a handsome majority.
It is stated that Bowen has not yet
seen fit to put in an appearance at
Washington. He is waiting to see how
Brewster Cameron gets through.
Jcdoe Meter is undoubtedly tha
most efficient Justice Tucson has over
bad, anil there is no question but he will
be retained in that position as long as
he desires it
Shaw is a good fellow but no man
for Sheriff when the county can get
Paul.
BOX. E. B. GI1T0RD.
As Leopoldo Corrillo stated that it
would bo impossible for him to mako
the canvase for the Assembly and de¬
sired to bo dropped from tbe ticket, tho
county central committee very wisely
decided to substitute the name of E. B.
Gifford of this city.
Mr. Gifford waH a member of the last
legislature and one of tbe most service¬
able members the county had. He is
also one of the most popular men iu the
county and his acceptance of the nomi¬
nation strengthens the whole ticket
There is no doubt of Mr. Gifford'a elec¬
tion ond with his past experience and
his acquaintance gained during the past
session ho will bo one of the most in¬
fluential members nt the Assembly.

Delegate Ouby gives the maximum

TnE Domocratic ghouls as nsnal, last
night dragged General Jackson from h:s
peaceful grave. If the defunct father
of Democracy had been there in person
how he would have denounced thi
degeneracy and abandonment of every
original Democratic principle.
The Star to-morrow will publish a
list of the bills introduced in Congress
by Delegate Oury. As he did not suc¬
ceed in getting any of them passed it
allows Delegate Oury in tho light of
the dog who would have caught the rab¬
bitif be hadn't.
Drake had just as well begin to pick
out a soft Hpot to drop on. btar.
The few votes Billy Read will get
will not furnish a very soft place for
Drake's majority to light on but then
Drake can stand it if Read can.
Was the nomination of Wm. S. Read
for Recorder on tho Democratic ticket
the reward promised by W. S. Oury for
his participation in the registration
frauds of two yean ago, which made the
San Simon outrage possible?
The Star evidently did not consider
Onry's speech worth reporting. In
this it agrees with a majority who heard
Mr. Oury.
"Is heaveu'a name, whut more can I

ises which it cannot fulfill.
! The Governor and Mrs. Tritlo visited
I the Empire district last week and wero
I the guesta.cf N. 1- Vail, Esq., the man¬
ager of tho Total Wreck mine. They
spent a couple of days in the thriving
littlo'village named from the famous
mine which it surrounds and visited
several of the mines of the district
Yesterday a Citizen reporttr inter¬
viewed tho Governor on the subject of
the visit
Reporter You have just returned
from a short visit to the Empire dis¬
trict What ib your general impression
as to tbe district?
Governor The district in general
madu a favorable impression. A great
deal of work has been done with very
good results. The district shows a
marked imi'tivenieut since a previous
visit made little less than two years
ago. A thriving village has sprung up
and there are everywhere the evidence)
of thrift aud erterprise.
It 'What opinion did you form ofthw
Total Wreck mine?
Governor It is an excellent property.
In fact, it is a better property than I
had been led to expect from the reports
that I had seeu of it. Considerable work
has been done opening the mine to a
depth of I52G feet. The Mpik has been dono
with an eye to economy And convenience
in the handling of the ore. There is a
large amount of ore on the dumps and
nn extraordinary amount exposed in the
mine. The vein is tho must regular of
any that I havo ever seen in tho same
formation. 1'he mill, which is now
about completed, U first class in every
particular, containing all tho latest im¬
provements ana appliances, taken al¬
together I consider the mine, as devel¬
oped, a very valuable property.
It Did you vinit any other proper¬
ties?
Governor Yes, I visited the "19" and
the Michigan Boy.
P. How did you find tho "-JO"?
Governor The miae is opened with a
shaft to the depth of about 100 feet with
lateral drifts at the bottom. A large
amount of ore has been exposed. The
present showing warrants the rystemat-
ic opening of the property with a good
prospect of its becoming a big mine.
R Wh,it did you think of the Michi¬
gan Boy mine?
Governor I found work progressing
ou the Michigan Boy. It gives good in¬
dication, of developing into a mine.
The shaft bus reached a depth of fifty
feet nearly perpendicular, at which
point the ore is -going off at such a pitch
into the hill as to mako it necessary to
change the course of the shaft to an
angle of about Jifty-fivo degrt'es. The
prospect is a very promising one, and if
further development shows what that
already done promises, the property will
prove a valuable one.

A DENVER M0RY.
A Prnallon Ithlch la Ilndl) Spoiled liy itir
!ollil Trulli.
The Denver Republican of tbe 15th
instant publisbeH u sensational report
of what it calU a "strange compact," in
which an Arizona murderer figure- as
the owner of 3,000 head of cattle which
can be purchased for $10,000 at the
murderer wants to fly to Europe, etc
The story as told by tho Republican im¬
plicates Mr. S. W. Fisher, the newly
appointed Collector of Internal Reve¬
nues for Arizona, as possessing knowl¬
edge of the murderer and his property
which is said to be near Inchon, ana
with a desire to purchase the cattlo and
shield the offender.
A reurescptative of tho Citizen- this
morning called upon Mr. Fisher at his
allies ou Convent street, and handed
him a copy of the paper containing the
sunsational article releirea to, with u
request that he carefully read tho state¬
ments thorein made. Mr. Fisher did so.
and at its conclusion could not restrain
a fit of hearty laughter. He then de¬
tailed everything ho knew concerning
the transaction, which was simply ana
briefly ns follows:
Last iuursaav morning no leu nis
home in Golden, Colorado, and went to
Denver to take passage the same day
for Arizona. Mr. T. h. Bellam, his chief
clerk, was to follow by train with tho
baggage of tho party, consisting-of one
trnnk each for Messrs. Fisher, Bellani
and Thos. Covey, a resident of Golden,
who had closed out his bnsiness ana
was intending to accompany Mr. Fisher
to Arizona and look at tho country with
a view to engage in business. These
trunks were duly checked at Denver for
Tncson, and Mr. Covey, who had pre¬
ceded the party to Colorado Springs to
visit friends, hoarded the train at that
place and came ttirougu to tuis city.
While in Denvor Mr. Fisher was at the
livery stable of Mr. Frank Hunter, and
was introduced to George W. Stone,
a stranger to him. As Mr. Fish¬
er was about to leavo the of¬
fice. Stone 'asked him to step aside,
and said that if he was going to Tucson
he was just the man he wanted
to see: that a man near Tucson, owning
3G00 head of cattle, had Rhot one man
and wounded him, fStone), and that tho
cattle could be bought cheap by Stone,
as tho owner did not want Stouo to ap¬
pear against him. Mr. Fi9her replied
that ho was not buying cattle, and Mr.
Stone then said that he had nearly the
amount of ready money required and
would obtain tho balance soon at Fort
Collins, and ho wanted to arrange with
Mr. Fisher to receive the cattle nnd
care for them. Mr. Fishor then replied
that he would be too busy to give any
time to such a proposition, but that n
young man was going to Arizona with
him who had no special bnsiness at
present and might be of service to him.
Stone then asked if he was sure this
vnnni? man would go to Tucson, and
Mr. Fisher replied that he wap, for he
"had his trunk with him.
This was all the conversation belweeu
Mr. Fisher and Stone, and Mr. Fisher
has not heard from him since, as he left
Denver two hours afterwards.
The conversation attributed to havo
occurred on the cars never took place.
One of tho Cra2is staff was in
tho same car with Mr. Fisher
from Denver to Tucson and noticed
that from Dtnver to Colorado Springs
Mr. Fisher occupied the seat of the
chief clerk, Mr. Bellam, and from
Colorado Springs to Pueblo, he sat a
Dortion of the time with a rauroaa man
named T. M. Smith, whose conversation
with Mr. Fisher was distinctly heard by
the representative of this paper, who
knows that such conversation never
neenrred as stated m the Kepublican,
In fact the sensation was made from
the thinnest warp of truth into which
the Republican reporer has woven the
moetaounuant wooi oi imiKiuauuu.

preme Lodge at their annual meeting
