Some eight months ago he published this prophecy: "lit the coming national coutet they will emit aside the blind servitude of the pat, and ally themselves with that party wuose candidate is the best man and whoso platform strike? tliera as best embodying their true interests!

Party lines were lone mo destroyed in the Old DominiON by the division over the pnblio debt, and since that time men have been voting for and against Mabone, with varying results. In the last election Mahone came out just enough ahead to ierpetuate his ascendancy for another your or two. What the final result will be depends very largely upon the support riven him by the administration and He- lmblioaiw in Congress. And he has notified the Republican Senators that he proposes to control the Senate np pointmeutd. HOH. n. S. STEVENS FOR MAT03. Onejeara'.'o the Citizen- advocated! the eltctiou of Hon. Hiram S. Stevens to the office of Major of this city. We did m liecause we believed that he hud the necessary ability and the interest of i the city at heart and would make an ef- ncient Mayor. Hie views of this iaper were not altered by the results of the election, and we still think Mr. Stevtms the best man for the place and we givu him a hearty sapjiort. Mr. Stevens is one of our oldest und most respected citizens. He is a largo property holder and tax iayer and lias always evinced great jmbhc spirit. He has always been foremost in every enter¬ prise for the benefit of this aity aad Territory. He has beoii a successful hnsitiea zanu and the city can safelv trust its affairs in his hands. We believe I that the people of this city recognize this fact and that he will be elected by an overwhelming majority. Audit will lie a fortunate day for Tucaon wlien he isuleeted Mayor.

The Citizen was tht "ret paper in the Territory to suggest tL ' name of Hon. E. II. Wiley for the office ot President of the Council, doing so daring tho cam¬ paign. Since the election we have re¬ peatedly expressed the opinion that he was the man for the place and urged his election. We know of uo reason for changing our views 011 the subject We lielieve that Mr. Wiley would make a first class presiding officer and will doubtless be chosen President of the Council. The above item is also unfair to IIou. J. V. Kuapp who is not a candi¬ date for tie jKisition and regard Mr. Wi¬ ley as a fit man for the place. .Tuikie T. M. Coolby one of th- ablaut of the nuudiially able Supremo bench of iuichigan has rendered n decision iu an appealed libel suit against a uewsjiaper that is of great importance. The alleged libel cons ited ot criticising a public official. Tho Court blow held that a newspaper had no more privilege to criticise the acts of a public official than those of n privato individual. Judge Cooley takes a different view of the matter. The following is his opinion on this important question: The defeudaut eontemla that to call pablic attention to whr.t so vitally con¬ cerns the public is mutter of privilege, and that, by presumption of law, iu motives in doing so must be deemed projier and not actuated by malice: hut the trialJustice, iu charging the jury, denied this claim altogether, and in do¬ ing so put the eae precisely upon tho same footing with publications which involve merely private gossip and scaudal. Xo declaration of this or an other Court can convince the common icasou that there is not a plain ami papable distinction here. Few which can be greater than tho public detrac¬ tion object. Pew duties can be plainer than to challenge nubliu attention to official disregard of the principles which . . ... . . ... f.roicct puonc nun personal liberty, The matters discussed in the publica¬ tion in question wore of grave public concern, anil therefore it was privileged A i:wk.vt number of the San Fran Cisco Evening Post contained n bio. graphical sketch of Colonel James C. Zabriskie, father of the United States District Attorney of thisTerritorv. The sketch is replete with interest, for the gentleman's life was unusually eventful and full of historic and romantic inter¬ est, and we only regret that our limited space forbids our reproducing the whole article. He is now the patriarch of thi San FrancMcu Itar, aad w a man of recognised ability and learning. Onr fellow townsman, United Status District Attorney Zabriekit-, is now visiting hiaj family after an absence of many years. He returns holding responsible official position and is highly respected tor his legal ability and social qualities. The Mexicans are greatly rejoiced over the completion of the Mexican Central Kail road from their capital city to the extensive silver mines of Guana¬ juato. These railroad line are doing much to increase the friendly feeiiu? between the two republics. It has al¬ ways lieen said that Mexico was more friendly to other foreigners than to citi¬ zens of the United States. This ought not to he so. Other foreigners are en¬ gaged in private business mostly, while onr people invest in grand public im¬ provements like railroads, which in¬ crease tlie busineas and prosperity of the country. Mexicans are fast lieeom- ing aware that Americans are their true friend?. The last census shows the araouut of capital invested in manufactures in Arizona for the year ended June, 1880, was (272,000; the number of establish¬ ments 66; number of males above the age of sixteen years was 216; number of females alove the age of fifteen yean, 2; number of children 2; amount of wages paid during the year 8111,181); value of material used $380,023; value of products 3615,065. Even if the Legislature does not te ;:!i!y displeasing to tho Ilepubli-. sire tcrmanently to remove the capital f t !:e State, and there is not the 1 from Prescott, they might adjourn the present session tn Phenix or Tucson where there are ample hotel accommoda¬ tions. This would force the people of Prescott to provide hotel facilities so that members of the Legislature would sot be compelled as now to room arounii in private houses. The Globe Silver Pelt reproduces an editorial from the Citizen- on "The Ef¬ fect of Hostile Railroad Legislation." and makes the following comment: We commend the article fiom the Arizona Citizen which appears in this issue, anu i-sk its perusal. It takes a most sensible view of the railroad oues. tion which is now agitating the minds oi tbnse who hy legislative action wouh w interfere with railroad building as to render capitalists wary of further in¬ vestments in Arizona for the purpose of rcntlenug intercommunication soeouv and comfortable, by rail. What Globe most needs is a railroad, and it is not the way to get it by placing obstacles in the way of those who proose to build It is proposed to discontinue the tax on tobacco. Some npposo this on the prouud that it is a luxury and not a nc ccMity. Anyone who has to en .ii old cliewer when he could not get hold of the weed, will be ready to contend that it is a necessity. Certain it is that it is ued iu greater proportion by the poor, m that the tax comes out of those Ieat able to stand it. Undoubtedly Congress will abolish the tax on the weed and then reduce that on the staff ot Democ¬ racy. Thk Tombstone Iicpnblican takes : very commendable stand on the que tion of railroad legislation. It thinks that no logislfltion should be under¬ taken without a thorough understand ing of the case. There should be no jump¬ ing at conclusions. Ilailroads are enti¬ tled to a fair profit as well as individ nah, and because the present rates are high i no proof that they jield the company an undue profit. Let us have no hasty or ill considered legislation. Thk death of Thnrlow Weed has re¬ vived considerable discussion of the Morgan case. The fate of Morgan is shrouded in mystery. Now tho anti Masons are airing the old story. As they cau prove nothing in relation to the matter, it is safe to concluie that Morgan, either through fear of the con sequences of liw apostacynnd perjury, or to bring disrepute ujton the order, absconded.

The document is au intensely practical one, and its recom¬ mendations upon the question of reve¬ nue and reduction ot taxation and ex¬ penses of the Government will meet ith general approval. The people ot Tucson would like to know the financial standing of the city, its indebtedness, resources, etc. Ac¬ cording to law the Mayor is required to make a quarterly report ou such matters hut so far as known he has neglected doing so. The reHrt t-honhl now be made without farther delay. The Tucson liar seems to favor the establishment ot a Superior Court for the ooauties of Pima ami Cochise, Ui have concurrent jurisdiction with the Territorial courts in civil and criminal cases. The committee appointed at the bar meeting Tuesday will communicate with the Tombstone bar in relation to the matter. Pckdy is said to have involved him¬ self iu serious trouble during the late election at Ynma. He was a candidate for District Attorney and received a ma¬ jority of the votes cast; whether he will be allowed to discharge the duties of the office remains to be seen. Tun citizens of Tucson should not be contented until this city is a railroad center. Money invested in f-ecuriug more railroads will be woll spent. One other road, if it would do ns much for Tnoson as the one we already have, would make it a city of 20,000 inhabit¬ ant. It 16 stated that Jay Gould is threat. oned with softening of the brain.

At nine o'clock last night as the Clifton south bound coach i cached a niut two miles north of York's ranch, Arizona, two Mex¬ icans stepped out from behind tho rocks and ordered tho driver to halt. The; then took the mail sack- from thu coach found them light and returned them to the driver unmolested. They disarmed the driver and ordered two Chinese pas sengers to get nut of the coach, stood them up for what valuables they had and thou foully murdered thorn. There is a fecrot organization in existence at Clifton and iu the surrounding country to clean out the Chinese employed by the Arizona copper mining company and bloody work may be expected at any time. The remains of the murdered men were still laying where the assassins left tbem at a late hour this morning. Sax FiiAyci'Sco, Dec. 4. The libel suit brought by J.

The President's message iu relation to Utah caoosn sur¬ prise among the anti-mormons who an ticipated otherwise, as it was intimated here before tho Utah Commissioners left for the Last that they had reconi mended further legislation in their re¬ port. They were is favor of repeal of female suffrage law andtho enactment of a marriage law and several other amendments to the Mormon law giving the commission inorcased powers.

Treat¬ ies are now boiuir formulated to protect trade marks, petents, etc The minister at Paris was requested to attend, ns delegate a convention sitting at Paris for tho improvement of the cable communi¬ cation. 11c suggests that the executive be empowered to send delegates to any international conferences on matters of the common interest ot civilization with provision to defray expenses. Spain in terposes many technical obstacles to American commerce. Ihe question is under consideration, hut no relief has yet been obtained from Spain regarding thu remonstrances, lie suggests that Congress consider an appropriation for representation at tho German indust¬ rial exposition. Germany has stopped emigration to the United States of pan pers and criminals. Ihe attention of Congress was called to a revision of the laws pertaining to immigration of con¬ victs, nauners etc. China and Japan indemnity matters should be settled the coming session. He calls tho attention of Congress to the question 01 the transit ot Chinamen through tho country cn route to other countries. Ho thinks the restriction is limited to Chinese coming here as laborers, and should not forbid the transit. He suggests the early consideration ot the Hawaiian reciprocity treaty. Some ot the provi¬ sions arc perhaps onerous, but the gen¬ eral effect favorable to commercial rela¬ tions. Regarding lawlessness on the Mexican border, relief had been sought by convention with Mexico, now await¬ ing the action of tho 'Senate, also the question of the boundary line. Requests for tuo United states to lie represented at the enezuelan celebration of the birth of Bolivar, and industrial exposi¬ tion foror against Venezuela, was not yet settled. P.egarding the Chili-lVruviau difficulty, the suggestion of this Gov¬ ernment that Chili accept money indem¬ nity in lieu of territory was not re¬ ceived. The enforcement of tho sug¬ gestion was contrary to the temper of our neotile and the spirit of our institution, as armed intervention would almost in¬ evitably leait ns to the establishment of a protectorate. Congress having taken uo action at the last session on the sub¬ ject of a peace conference between North aud South American States, Tor which invitations were previously sent out from tho State Department, the President conclnded to iostpono the proposed convention, and w notified the Governments. Aftor general romirks regarding diplomatic matters, tho Pres¬ ident recommends legislation to insure harmony and international rules for the prevention of collisions at son and the establishment of common meridian and longitude. Favors the abolishment ot fees for diplomatic and consular service and navment of fixed salaries. The report of the Secretary of the Treasury shows a surplus revenue of SUo,DId,UUu which with $20,737,000 drawn from the cash balance in the treasury has been ap¬ plied to the redemption ot bonds, the sinking fund aud other obligations. The excess of exports over imports of merchandise for tho year is S2j,'JO.,X)), which is less than for the previous six years, two thousand two hundred and sixty-nine national banks are now in exitence. Their circulation on July 1st was $o21,(iC,4oS. He cominonds ttis Secretary's views in respect to the circulation. The President reiterates the views cxi ressed in his last message regarding the coinage of silver and tho issue of silver certificates which are now emphasized by the result ot the issue ot gold certificates. He heartily approved the Secretary's commenda¬ tions for immediate and extensive re¬ duction of revenues. The present rapid extinction ot the debt was not a cause for congratulation, but rather for serious apprehension. Either the sur¬ plus must lie idle iu the treasury or the goverraent be forced to buy. at market rates bonds not yet redeemable which will in consequence command enormous premium, or surplus be devoted to ex¬ travagant expenditure. The President farther suggests, if the expenses of the government for the coming year have not been under¬ estimated, that all the tax on distilled spirits may safely be abrogated and by simplifying the machinery of collection dimmish the cost of collection of S2 500.000. He objects to the total abrogation of internal revenue on ac¬ count of uncertainty of the require¬ ments ot the pension list and becatue it would interfere with the tariff revision. The present tariff system is in many THE MKXATE. Washington, Doc 4. The Senate convened at 1:30, and soon utter hud the Presidents message read.

The Kasson resolution was ndonteil allowing the Civil Service Committee to renoit at any time. This caused nisuv jocular remnrEs. Ihe Presidents message was read and the death ot Lowe and UpdegratT was announced, rtter which they ad¬ journed. Washinoton, Dec 4. Inconsequence 01 the order last session nxmg 11 at the hour for tho daily assembling of the House, the second session of that body was opened by the speaker at that hour. Ihe galleries were comfortably tilled On tho floor a bustling throng of mem¬ bers were engaged in friendly greetings and in tho exchange of jocular remarks, Tho appearance ot the chamber was not changtd: the same dingv carpet covered the tioor, though the revarnishingof the desks tends to rnako the hall look' brighter. The desk occupied during the last session by the late Uitdegraff, of Ohio, was draped in black and orna. menteil with tlowers. In the opening prayer the Chaplain si I nded to the death of Updegrau" and Lowe and gave thanks that other members preserved ealth and prosperity. The speaker then formally declared the session open¬ ed and the Clerk proceeded to call the roll. Clayton McMichcl. the new U. S.

THK AKLINCTON ESTATE. The United StatesSnpreme Court has lecideJ tho Arlington estate casein favor ot General Custer Lee. As the ground is now occupied as a national cemetery the claimant will accept its value in cash. Washington, Dec o. ihe message continues: Alaska needs some form of cnil government. The President dep¬ recates the destruction 01 forests, and invites legislation for their protection. luo i're3id?nt declares his approval of si'ch legislation ns may bo found neces¬ sary to supplement existing laws regard¬ ing political assessments. A public an¬ nouncement wu made July last that the government employes should exercise their pleasure in tho matter without prejudice to their official status. In his judgment such collections should lie prohibited by law. A bill to that effect wilt receive the cordial approval of the executive, who hopes that before an¬ other election the question of the man ntr of ascertaining the f residential vote and the intention of tho constitu¬ tion in devolving executive functions upon tho Vice President during disabil¬ ity ot tho President may bo determined. lie closes with a reference to the pros- purity of the country and with u hope that the dictates of prudence, patriot¬ ism, justice and economy will cause the adoptiou of measures in which Congress and tho executive may heartily unite. Ihe report ot the secretary of War 6ays that little uangtr is to appre¬ hended from Apacoes. ihe sen coast fottificatiocs are notoriously inadequate but pending the consideration of the re¬ port of the board mado to Congress last session the war department has done nothing toward making or converting hcaw cannon. Means for au earlier action arc hoped for as well as more adequate providing for arming and equipping the militia. He recommend¬ ed a law regarding tho retirement of Ulcers which needs amendment.
