Chief Parker succeeded in putting his

Delegate Cubby was the only honest
Democrat in the Democratic convention
yesterday. He was nominated for the
office of county surveyor which he re
spectfully declined. He was he said,
"at present engaged in gin slinging

The Star will challenge any one to
snow ud anv delegate from any Terri
tory in ihe United States, during the
last two years, who performed as much
"work, pissed as mnny laws of special
benefit toheir respective territory in
any one session, as did Marcus A. Smith
Arizona's delegate, during the present
session. The fact is there arj not a
dozen congressmen who can t-how bet
ter records as workers as can Delegate
Smith. Star.
What a tremendous challenge is to be
found in the foregoing. Will coming
ages echo a reply or must the present
generation stand still with distended
diaphram and await an answer. Th6
only Territorial representative that
mark has to buck against for ability is
Joseph of New Mexico, and God save
the Mark between tae two.
The Louisville Courier-Journal indig
nantly refutes the charges made by
some of the third party mischief-makers
in Texas that more peneions were grant
ed under Cleveland then during any
other administration. The Louieville
paper is determined that Cleveland's
chances in the sjuth shall not be injur
ed by any false representation of too
great friendliness toward the Union vet
erans, and their familiee, and it declares
that. the Texas story is "one cf the pre
posterous statements that proceeds
from ignorance, and can be accepted
only by men who will not keep inform"
ed concerning the course of. public
The Courier-Journal then proceeds
with much elaboration to put down the
rile slander against its candidate, ard
declares that, "next to the tariff mes
sage, the most notable public service
rendered by Mr. Cleveland was tha veto
of the dependent pension bill." This,
Mr. Watte recn's paper thinks, was a
courageous and patriotic act, and a
protest against the looting of the treas
ury under the pretense of patriotism.
We quote: M
Mr. Cleveland well knew that it ar
rayed against him the orgcnizition
known as the Grand Army cf the Repub
lic, and there can be but little doubt
that it was one of the most effective in
fluences leading to his defeat in 1S88.
Today all over the north the political
influence of the Grand Army of the lie
public is used in behalf of Mr. Harrison
cgainst Mr. Cleveland. It is surprising,
therefore, to hear that in the 6tate of
Texas people are listening to Third
party demagogues, who stop at no mis
representation and hesitate at no slan
der. Under the law of June 27, 1890,
nearly 100,000 pensions were granted in
the year ending June 30, 1S91.
The first year of Mr. Cleveland's ad
minibtration, 35,707 pensions were
. granted.
The first year of Mr. Harrison's ad
ministration, 41,921 pensions were grant
ed. The second year or Mr. Cleveland's
administretion, 40,859 pensions were
The second year of Mr. Harrison's
administration, G6,G37 pensions were
The third year of Mr. Cleveland's ad
ministration 25,194 pensions were grant
ed. The third year of Mr, Harrison's ad
ministration, 15C.4S6 pensions were
During the four years, 1885-SG-S7 88,
covering Mr. Clevel ana's administration
192.073 pensions were granted. .
During one year of Mr. Harrison's ad
ministration, 156,480 pensiotfl were
During three years of the Harrison
administration 274,011 pensions were
granted. The average during Mr. Har
rison's administration will be over 100,
(KX), or more than double the average
during the administration of Mr. Cleve
land. Thus laboriously and painfully the
Courier-Journal puts down the island
er" that Cleveland was disposed to be
too friendly to the Union veterans. It
shows conclusively that he was only
half as friendly as President Harrison
has been. It might have gena further
and eaid that, if Mr. Cleveland had
been able to enforce his private senti
ments entirely, no pensions would have
been granted at all.
Strange to say here is an instance in
which every republican paper and
every well informed person in the coun
try willlsoncede that the Courier-Journal
has made out its case fully. The
"campaign lie" that Cleveland was
friendly to the old soldiers is effectually
nailed. Certainly it must be a very
ignorant c!ass of people and thesa only
in the far south who would ever have
believed cuch a thing of him. The
third party fabricators would know bet
ter than to go about the north and re
port that Cleveland was too friendly to
the old soldiers; they know that they
would get themselves laughed at. But
it is among the people of the south, who
used to believe that the Yankees had
hoofs and horns, that these fellows are
able to practice their deceit. They
ought to be arrested for thus imposing
on the over-ignorant and too credulous
southern "shovelry'
It is true that Mr. . Cleveland, in his
letter of acceptance, deals out a little
high flavored taffy to the Union veter
ans, eaying in a general way, that no
complaint should be made at ihe
amount of public money paid those ac
tually disabled or made dependent by
reason of ftrmy service," but the people
of the north know how to take such
things. They can read between the
lines. They know Cleveland's rocord;
they know what is due as a sop to the
old soldier, and that, in bis case, it eig-
f nififs nothing.
It is as though Heods-
man Stevenson 6hould expatiate on the
beauties of civil service, the while he

The Republican primaries parsed off
harmoniously today. A fairly large vote
was polled and the best of feeling pre
vailed. This augurs well for the suc
cess of the party in November next.
A proposition is about to be put 1?
fore the city council by the Tucson
Water Works and Sewerage Company
for two separate franchisee, enid fran-
chises to extend for a period of h.ty
years. As may De unuer9'ooa oy ine
name of the company the intent and
purpose of said company is to provide
the city with water and sewerage sys
tems. Of both these systems the city is
much in need and every encouragement
consistent with good judgement and
the interest of our citizens should
be g ven. Care must Le taken, how
ever, in case one or both of these fran
chises are given, that justice- is done to
all parties, the city as well as the com
pany and the company as well as the
city. In tha franchises as offered, there
are several exacting and objectionable
features that must be 6tricken out be
fore a final passage of the ordinances
are reached, and besides the measures
are of such importance that no city
council would dare run them throuph
at one meeting, but time must be given
for their consideration. When laid be
fore the council both measures will be
ia the field for public discussion.
Under the above caption the Germnn-
American Insurance Co, of which
.Meesrs. Underwood Jc Uibbon are
agents, gives the following instructions:
The ballots are hereafter ti te furn
ished by the state for the statd officers,
and by the city for local cQoers. These
ballots are to be differeDt in color. No
ticket can be voted but those officially
On these ballot? the names of the
candidates of all parties are printed. A
vote ia cast by putting a cross after the
name ef the candidate, with a small
rubber stamp supplied for this purpose,
and found in the booth. You must not
use a lead pencil in marking the x,
which means a vote, or your ballot is
not counted.
The ballot you obtain from the ballot
clerk ia to-n from a book, and a number
is printed on it which the clerks raak
opposite your Eaxe on the register, go
that when your ballot is handed to the
inspector the number is compared be
fore depositing the tame in the box to
see that it corresponds with th9 one
handed you upon entering. There is
a blank Fpace in the case of every
office, which the voter may rill with the
name of any candidate he chooses, but
in the small square opposite the came
you write in, use the rubber stamp
to mark the x, not pencil or pen. Cf
course the name added must be written
with one or the other.
The Tasmanian trick cannot very well
be played under this law, for each bal
lot has a stub numbered on the back.
If the baMot offered does not correspond
with the etub it cannot be received.
Nothing, therefore, could be gained by
surreptitiously getting possesion of a
ballot, tilling it up and giving it to the
purchased voter, with instructions to
vote it and bring back the clean ticket
which he obtained in the polling booth,
for the use by the next vagabond, for
the series would be thrown out.
The illiteracy dodge also cannot be
worked without danger of the ctate
prison. The voter who swears he can
not read is entitled, to call an election
officer to his assistance. By this means
he might secure a chance to sell his vote
in the privacy of the booth. But it ivill
be dangerous all around. If the execu
tion of the law falls into decent and
reputable hand6, the best results may
be expected. But if the political round
ers should get hold of it many of its
safeguards may ba broken down. No
law is self-executicg.
There is 1 able to be a misunder
standing in regard to scratching and
voting straight. When you cross any
straight ticket, you have voted for all
the candidates you are entitled to vote
for, so should you put another cross op
posite a name you would lose your vote.
But there may be constitutional amend
ments or any ether question that could
not be included in the straight vote
the cross in this case is also put opposite
which ever you wish to vote for.
The report comes from all parts of the
county that the drougth is more serious
in its effects upon the ranges than was
supposed during the summer. The
green grass is all gone and the little
cured grass that is left shows tb.6 barest
ranges that have ever been seen in
southern Arizona.
There is but one remedy and that is
to move the steer cattle at once all
steers, old and young, and old weak
cows should be taken to new ranges so
as to give the brood cattle some litt'e
hope o! living through the coming wint
er and spring. Unless this is done End
speedily, the range cattle industry in
this county will be a dream of the past.
The strongest evidence that the cat
tle here cannot live through the ap
proaching winter is the fact that the
pick of 111 head cf T. Lilhe Mercer's
Bteers only brought 62.30 per head at a
recent publio sale.
His stock cattl were just sold with
20 bidders present, from JUDO to CO cts.
per head, respectfully, fair first and sec
ond choice.
Our advice to the stockmen of this
oounty is to move all of their steer
c&ttla at least, and on ranges where the
grass is short, the old cows should b1:.o
With this object in view C. M. Bruce
is nrw in Xovmla. Wiillpr ail is now in
California, Clin Cameron in tha Pan- (
handle of Texas, all seeking now ranges,
and II. R. Richardson will also ship his
cattle away within the next few weeks.
With each of these large shipments
many of the snail neighboring ranch
men will B3ud their steer cattb, paying
their pro rati of th-? expeneca of freight
and j a-turng-1, aocorJing to the numbers
owned by tha several shippers.
At the priuriry election on Saturday

It looks as though the Phoenix Ga
zette was running t ie Democratic poli

that the Star is going to desert its o'd
master, the Democracy, and fly the flag

canLot be had ic the election of Oleo
margarine from Buzzards Bay.
The Republican convention for the
nomination of county officers will be
he'd in Tucson on the 8th instant.
Whiie it is impossible to select a ticket
till the convention gets together, there
should nevartheless, be an understand
ing as to whom, so far as Tucson is con
cerned, will go before the convention
for its honors. To do this will not ODly
avoid confusion but will insure, the se

Cannot Vot for Freetrade.
George Tricknor Curtis, the eminent
constitutional lawyer, who has been a
shining light in the Democratic party
for so many years, doe not believe in
doing things by halves. When he has
convictions, he believes ia backing them
up with actions. We quoted, a few days
ago, his views on thaantiprotection plack
of the Democratic platform. Therein he
repudiated in t to, the Democratic
pronounciamento that the levying of a
protective tax by the Government ia
unconstitutional. Mr. Curtis has written
the following letter, which fully explain
itself, says the Los Angeles Times.
Richfield Sprigst (X. Y.. SeDt. 12
Wilbur F. Wakeman, Esq., general scre
tary of the American Protective Tariff
League: Dear Sir In fulfillment of
my promise made in response to your let
ter of the 7th icst., I proceed to give you
mv views of the protective issue as it has
been made by the two political parties
in the present campaign. First, however,
h t me observe, by way cf preface to
whet I am about to say, that although I
have for very many years acted and
vo'ed with the Democratic party, I can
not do so in the coming Presidential elec
tion. A vote for the nominee of the Ia
Democratic National Convention will
mean a vote for tree trade. It will mean
n vote for the doctrines enunciated in
the platform, which denounciated the
Republican tariff a a fraud on the grea
majority of the American people for th
benetit of a few, stigmat'zed a protective
tariff as unconstitutional, and proposes
to lay duties lor obtaining revenue only
without regard to the protection of our
own industries. I cannot by my vote
amrm anytmng so false as this. A man
muss pay some regard to truth in politics
as well as in other thicga. To ffSrm
what I believe to be untrue political
uoctnna is something that I never did
nndthall not do it now. I consider the
a-jti-protection "plank" in the Deraocra
tic platform to be as false as anything
that I have ever known to be asserted in
a similar instrument. If it had said that
th existing tts riff needs revision, I might
have concurred. But it has gone the
whole Lngth of denying that 'any pro
tection cf our domestic industries is with
ia th.3 constitutional power of Congrosa

This is not the first time that I hav
differed from my party. I was born and

was educated as a Whig in politics, and
I learned constitutional law from Dame
Webster and Joseph Story. In future
communications I shall show that in lay
ing duties on foreign products it
perfectly constitutional for Congress to
lay them 6o as to encourtge our Amen
can-industries, and that a tariff for reve
nue only would bring ruia upon the
Government end upon the people.
Yours very truly.
