ESTHER, The Beautiful tneen. The above-named bJ-utiful orato- nc, which has been in preparation for some length of time back by our local musical talent, will be rendered on Monday and Tuesday evenings of next week, February IGth and 17ih, at the Baptist church. Nothing in the musical line has ever been pro duced in Phoenix, if in the Territory, anywhere approaching Its beauties and excellencies, and we have heard enough of the rehearsals to feel warranted in saying that this rather difficult musical drama will be most creditably rendered. The following will be the person ations. DRAMATIS PERSONS. King W. C. McNulty Queen Mrs. Loring Hainan Mr. Miller Zerish. , Mrs. Pierce Mordccai Mr. Winters Mordccai's Sister Sirs. F.

Queen, a beautiful Jewish maiden married to the king without his knowledge of her race. Haman, a haughty Am&Iakite counter in high favor with the king. Morde cai, a Jew, Uncle.of the qu tn and who had discovered and prevented a conspiracy atrhiiitt the king for which service he was welcome to the court; but he ecoms Haman, who, offended, obtains through misrepre sentation the consent of the king not only to destrov Mordtcai, but nil the Jews. Mordccai prays tbe queen to i nteiccde in behalf of the Jews at the ru-k of her life, and b' her ad dress she succeeds in unmasking Haman to the king and saves her race, while Haman is hanged on the gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai. In the mean time the king con ceives the idea of rewarding Morde cai mere fully for his former service and by the advice of Haman, wbo supposed that he himself was to be the object of the reward, the purple robes and golden chains of the king were to be worn by tbe person mounted on the king's horse, which was to be led throughout the city by an intimate friead of the king, pro claiming "whosoever the king bon oreth, obtainelh this mark of his honor." The king, without knowing Hainan's enmity to Mordecai, then made khown to Haman that Morde cai was the man to be honored and that Haman be the herald to precede him. Citizens Meeting.

As you push back the swinging doors leading into the Assembly Chamber, tbe first object to catch your eye is the Speaker's desk at the extreme end of the hall. The gentleman who sits behind that desk and presides over the assemblfd wisdom of tbe lower House, will at once attract your attention; you see large well shaped head, a har.d' some face, a pair of keen gray eyes, within whose depths there always urks a kindly Fmile. The head s crowned by an abundant growth of iron-gray h-iir, while the face is fringed by a full beard of the same lor. Now he rises to put a ques ion and you see the broad shoulders, the compact and muscular build of the presiding: officer, somewhat toye tbe medium height; his avor i pois is equal to any man on the floor, and yet he does not seem to arry an eur.ee of superflous flesh That is GKSERAL ROLLINS, of Pima, whom the Thirteenth As seinbly have elected to the honora' ble position of Speaker. As a pre siding officer he is prompt, correct and impaitial; as a talker, he is one of the best in the Territory. His delivery and his eloqution are near ly always correct; his ideas are clear and never common piace; his argument? are always logical and his subject full of good sense. In his manners, the General is one of the mo3t genial men in either House, He possess the faculty of making friends and has always a pleasant word and a kindly smile for all who meet him. There probably never wag a more popular and pleasant Speaker in an Arizona Assembly CAPTAIN W ATKINS. To your right, at the extreme rear corner of the hall, sits the gentle man whose name beads this sketch Tall and straight as an arrow, with a fine intelligent head ; the Captain is a man to attract attention any where. Save a brown mustache, slightly sprinkled with gray, his face is clean shaven, and shows in its every line, firmness softened by kindness and good sense. As be rises to address the House you will notice his right arm hangs limp by his 6ii!e. It is a constant reminder to its owner of the ereat rebellion. and was shattered by a fragment of shell in one of the battles of that bloody conflict, when the Captain was gallantly serving his country beneath the flag of the Union. As a speaker, Captain Walkins is one of the ablest in tbe House. He possesses that happy faculty, so rare among public speakers, of combining sound sense, good logic and racy humor. He can convulse the House with a ludicrous comparison, set them thinking with a logical argument and win their votes with a statement abounding in reaton, sense aud justice. Whenever he rises he claims the undivided attention of the cham ber. His voice is clear, strong and distinct ; he is never at a loss for ideas oi for words to express them; he always goes to the marrow of the subject under debate and has the tact to stop when he has said enough. Such is Capt. Walkins, of Gila; in rcannciS a gentleman, and as a leg islator one of the best in either House. As a raconteur he has no equal among his peers, and is al ways ready to tell a good story or listen to one. GENERAL WATiDWELL. The Central is emphatically a leader in the House aud is always ready to participate in debate on any ques ion that may come up. QuicR in retort or rapertie, he is never at loss for words to express h"s opin ions. In speech, he is earnest and emphatic, and throws his whole soul into the cause which he champions. His gestures are all his own and his language, while perhaps lacking in some of the graces t,f rhetoric, con tains what is far better, good hard sense and plenty of mother wit. Tbe General is a sterling Democrat of the old Jacksonian type, aud be lieves, like all good Democrats, that to the victors belong the spoils. He is an able, watchful and concientious champion of the interest of Cochise. He is never afraid to call a spade a spade, and his outspoken utterances on every questien often times sets the lobby in a roar. The General is small in stature but be is not afraid to tackle any man or measure that may ceme up for dissection. He served in the late unpleasantness and is a staunch friend to the soldier. The General has his weakness; what distinguished man has not? It con sists in his devotivn to the fair, to whom he is unremitting in bis at tention. There is no ball or party but where he may be found, and among the merry throng there is no one more gallant than the subject of our sketch As is known, he is a bachelor, but rumor has it that when he again returns to the sylvan shade of the Huachucas he will carry with him one of the fairest flowers that blooms beneath the shadow of Thumb Butte. i, M. (TRANKI.IN. "Who is that young man with y classes sittinc to the Speaker s right?" That is Mr. Franklin, of Tucson. As you will see he has the strongly marked and intelligent features of his race. His forehead is high but somewhat retreating, and his nose prominent and well formed. Mr. Franklin is a native born American, but there is no mis taking the striking facial character istics which mark the Chosen People in whatever clime fate has wafted them; The subject of our sketch is quite a young man and a lawyer by profession. This is his maiden essay in tbe bu.-iness of law-making but he has evidently paid some atten c to the ti chiiicalities of parlia mentary law. As a speaker, Mr. Franklin is pleasing and gi .c-. i u .' , ) he is not brilliant nor rhetorical. but he uses good language and seeks to get at the gist of a question with out using superflous .verbiage. In speaking be uses few gestures; his delivery being quiet but stlf-pos' sessed. Mr. Franklin has the rep utation of being a strong antl-monop- olist, and has already introduced a bill to regulate freights and fares. In the early part of the session he received the title of "watch dog of the treasury," but the pressure was too great acd the title would scarcely be appropriate now. Personally, Mr. Franklin is pleasant aud gen tlemanly in manners. He Is not much given, a3 are many of his col- leagdea, to hearing the chimes at midnight or carmiuing the munici pality. He is an industrious legis lator and will show a good record when the session is over. SAMUEL PtJRDT. Any personal description of Sam Purdy would be a superflous task. Most of your readers have seen or met him, and there are few residents of Arizona who have not heard of him. This is his third se?ion in tho legislature of Arizona, lie has made his home iu the Territory for nearly fifteen years and is thorough ly conversant with all its wants aud requirements. A lawyer by profes sion, a fluent talker nuu a read debater, he always commauds the attention of the House wt.eu he rises o address it on any question. As a parliamentarian he bus no superior in either Houe. He has every point at bis finders ends, and many an in- experienced member has found him self suddenly tripped up by a "point of oider" or some other cunningly devised snare set by Samuel to citch the fledgelings in legislative iore. Personally, there are few more genial men iu Arizona than Sam 1 urdy. ite is a welcome guest at every festive gathering, and outside of the Hnu-a there is no more popu lar member. He is a power in the House, and his influence is sure to affect every measure that comes be fore that body during the present session . Cactus. Kednce Kxpcnsei. Ed. Herald The tax levied upon property in Maricopa county is ex cessive and insupportable, limes are hard and the farmer with a cap ital of five to fifteen thousand dol lars finds it difficult to pay expenses. The office helders, with no capital in their official business, are making a net gain out of county offices fr m three to fifteen thousand dollars per annum. The reputation of tbe county is Injured as a field for investment and the bone and sinew of the county put under heavy tribute to pay county expenses . Is there no rem edy ? The warrant indebtedness of the county should be placed in thirty year bonds at 6 per cent, per annum which will make an exceedingly attractive investment, and the pres ent heavy tax to create a sinking fund fnr the payment of this indebt edness can be averted. The fees of officers should be reduced to a min- mum. Cuminal costs should be avoided by a careful administration of the prosecuting attorney's office and by a close and decided policy of the Board of Supervisors; then we may all suffer together until the incoming of capital and the devel opment of values enable us to sup port our county government without imposing the present heavy burthen of taxation on our dis;ressed and tribute-ridden people. Vqtlasr on SabsidicS- Editor Herald On its face the propo.-ition to allow the voters ot a community to say by a majority vote whether a certain measure that imposes a burden on the tax-paying portion shall be a law or not seems at first sight to be correct and just; but the fact is, as proved by past experience, 'tis only a door lelt open for the thief to enter. Take a com munity nearly evenly divided on a measure in which a third party is pecuniarily interested to such an ex tent that they or he can afford to expend $2,000 to cany his point ; is there a reader of this article who will doubt for a moment which side will carry the day ? Say and prate as much as we may about the purity of the ballot box and the beauty of free ballot, the republican piineiple of the majority ruling etc., but when we come to test it on. a measure where money can be used freely it Is a fie coated, to hide it, with sen timent. If the opinion of a majority of the persons who will have to bear the burden of a subsidy for a rail road is wished, let a petition bo cir culated among the taxpayers pro and con and sent to our delegates in the Legislature and they decide on the advisability of the bill, or if the question is to be left to a vote, let the tax roll of 1884 be the poll list at the elction and only those who are on it have a vote. In this way a fair expression of the people can be had, and tbe only way. Shall the vagrants and bummers vote to im pose a burden on the people who support them 'tis just what it will amount to if a subsidy bill is left to a lull vote of the voters of tbe county. Local option bills are frauds of the vilest character and should not be coautenanced at this day. Look at tic number of cases that fill our law reports; how many subsidy cases will you find? Hundreds! All voted on and carried by a vote of the local community. They have been upheld even when the vilest frauds have been proved. Why? Because the bonds have psssed from the hands of the first, parlies who committed the fraud ijto the hand of what the courts hold innocent holders, bona fide purchasers for value, and so it will be. If Maricopa county wants a railroad, if the busi ness and farming men think it proper to give a subsidy let them get to work now and advise our legislature of the fact; if not, let them speak so that it can not be mistaken. No legislature will force a bill on a people against their ex pressed wish. But no voting on it; if you d' you are bent. Act at once, and don't wait until the bill has passed and then curse those who passed it. If you want the railroad you must pay for it; If you do not wan! the railroad (unless you get it gratis) now is the time heft.-re the bill passes to say so; don't build yjur hopes on an election. ANTI-SUBSIDY. COUNCIL AND HOUSE. Brief Review of a Week's Work. The Oratory and Pnsrnacity the 13th Assembly- The Third Jtonse. Prescott, Jan. 8, 1883 The Her ald representative omitted his reg ular letter last week, descriptive of passing events at the Capital City. The reason of this omission is due to the fact that he was waiting for definite action to be taken on meas ures of special interest to the people of Maricopa county. He had hoped to be able to tell your readers that some of those measures of vital im portance to the people of Salt River Valley, and now under considera tion, had been favorably or uufavor-i ably treated. The matters alluded to, however, are yet awaiting tbe verdict of the thirty-six gentlemen whom the people of Arizona have selected as their judges and jury for the period of sixty days. Perhaps the most importaal of the measures so far as Maricopa is concerned : the INSANE ASVLUU BILL, introduced bv Judge Poiter. It has passed the first and second readin and has been made the special orde of tbe day for two o'clock, on Mon day. Your readers have alreatly read the Act in the Herald, and ca judge of its merits and demerits That its passage would be ot great benefit, not only to the people o Phoenix but to the Salt River Valley in general, goes without saying. Th proposed measure has some strong support and also meets with som strong opposition. The main objec tion against its passage in its presen form is the amount of the appropii' ation asked from the Territoria treasury. The opponents of the bill say that f 100,000 is too much; aud when the bill comes up for fina passage, it is almost certain they will offer amendments reducing the sum named. Your correspondont is of the opinion that the bill will pass but that the appropriation will be much smaller than the act now calls for. Anotbar measure of general interest to the tax payers of Mari copa is that intcoduced by Mr. Arm strong for FUNDING THE DEBT of your county. The Herald repre. sentative has not yet seen a copy of the bill, and therefore can not speak as to its details. As soon as printed, you will be furnished with a copy, and then your readers can form their own opinion. It is certainly a mat ter deserving the most thoughtful consideration of your people, and they should be fully consulted as to whether or not they desire the pas' sage of an act that will so closely affect their interests . In a matter of such moment, the voice of tbe hum blest taxpayer should be entitled to as much consideration as that of the merchant or banker. THE WATER QUESTION is quiescent at the present. There is a disposition oa the part of both Houses to deal caiefully and con siderately with question of such vital importance to the farming in terests of Ibc Territory . However, there seems to be a general feeling that some legislation is required whereby a just, equitable and eco nomical system may be adopted for regulating the use, supply and aps propriation of waters from the streams of the Territory. It is felt that some check to the willful waste and extravagant use of the most precious gift which the people of Arizona possess, is urgently de manded. There is no danger that vested rights will be disturbed, but there is a disposition to do equal and exact justice to all The bill intro duced in the interest cf the Mineral Belt railroad, giving that corpora1- tion the right to construct dams, ditches, flumes, dykes, etc., at that point on Salt River where the pro posed Hue will cross the stream, will hardly become a law. It virtually gives the company the entire control of the waters of the Salt River above a canyon, a p ivilege which is not likely to be given to any individual corporation, by an Arizona legisla ture. Todd's bill asklnsr for an ap propriation for the FAIR ASSOCIATION has been the one other feature of the week's legislation of special interest to the dwellers in the Garden City. The amount of the appropriation asked is 10,000. But little is said regarding the matter, and ft is diffi cult to deteimine how the bill will fare in either house. On one thing your people may rest assured. Mr. Todd will spare no effort or neglect no opportunity to carry the bill through. Before closing this short sketch of the measures affecting the interests of Maricopa.it may not be amiss to say a few words in a geni eral way, of the n.en on the ground who are supposed to be looking after these interests. Fir-it, as to the members in both houses, it can be said that Messis Todd, Porter and Armstrong are working faithfully for what they consider the best in terests of the Salt Riyer Valley. It s a misfortune that their efforts do not always meet with that hearty support from some members of the Maricopa delegation to the Third House, which they ought naturally to expect. The stumbling block in iu the way of Maricnpa's complete success in the present session is the interference of selfish individual in terests with measures that are of no general bem fit. This is the simple fact, and its existence does not tend to harmony in the ranks of the del egation from the Salinas. Last Sun day the Corporation Committees of both houses held a meeting to con sider the bill to prevent DISCRIMINATIONS in railroad traffic, introduced jointly by Armstrong and Franklin. The joint committees agreed unanimous y to strike out that clause in the act providing for the appointment of a railroad commissioner, at a salary of $3,000 per year and expenses. Shorn of this objeeiional feature the biil has been reported back to the lower House and is likely to pass The bill to create office of COMMISSIONER OP IMMIGRATION that body came up in Committee of the Whole House last Saturday and brought out the ablest speeches yet heard in either chamber. Purdy, of Yuma, of had charge of the bill and handled it with the skill of a trained parlia mentarian. He made an able and exhaustive argument in favor of the measure, and was followed by Gen, Rollins, who took the floor and de livered an eloquent, logical and con vincing argument for the passage of the bill. He cited the benefits which other States and Territories had re ceived by the establishment of-such an office, and clearly showed the urgent necessity for Arizona to do something in the same direction. General Wardwell also spoke in his usu'd happy vein in favor of the measure. He said Arizona should let outside the world know her vast aud varied resources and this could only be done by thorough and systematic advertising. Capt. Watkius, of Gila, closed the debate in a speech that brought down the House. It was humorous, logical, sensible and elo quent. He strongly favored the passage of the act, and said Arizona first needed stout hearts and willing hands to till her fertile valleys, open bur mines, cover her plains with flocks and herds aud make profita ble her vast forests. The Captain is one of the members who hts, so to speak, grown upon the House. He came here a comparative strang er but has alriady shown himself to be the peer of any man on the floor SCRAPPIISO MATCHES. This resume of a week's work would not be complete without some account of the several "set toos" which have edified the denizens of the capital city. The first occurred on the floor of the House, alter tne adiournment. between two of the Yavapai tribe, and resulted in no further damage than a bloody Dose and a black eye. The second took place in a popular caravansary, the combatants being a member of the Council nod a well known mining professor. It was according to the Hackberry rules, and thoush of short duration was quite exciting In the first round the professor's spectacles were sent flying through the air, and in his endeavor to re cover them he received a "diff" In the region of the bread basket which made him think a package of dyna mite had exploded in the immediate viciDity. By this time outsiders interfered, aud the combatants were separated. The last dfscussien, a la Sullivan was between two gentlemen of the Council, and was entirely a misun derstanding, caused by the intermed dling of outsiders. After mutual explanations Ihe gentlemen shook hands, and are now the best of friend?. Whatever may be the faults of the present Legislature, a lack of courage is certainly not one of them. The members are ready to back up heir opinions with muscular argu ments at any moment. In this trai. they are surely tiativeand to the Ari, zona manner born. OLLA PODRIDA. The speech of General Ward"JJ on the dynamite bill was a featu of last week's proceedings in the House. The General gallantly de fended the frisk people in all their audable struggles for freedom, and cored in fining terms the brutal in humanity of the English govern ment. The report that tbe Maricopa county members were in on the Gape Horn mileage racket was a mistake. JNooneof the gentlemen charged more than the law allowed tliem. Many of the irusceptitle bachelors ave succumbed to the blandish ments of the female applicants for subordinate positions, and now quite bevy of spinsters hold clerkships both houses. Although nepotism has been con- emned as a national political sin, still it is but human nature to prac- ice it when one has the power. The resent Legislature is doubtless of the same opinion, judging from the umber of sisters, cousins aod aunts ho have secured positions. A sample of the wild schemes that are being presented to the present Assembly is that of a musical son of Mars, who desires the position of and master in case tbe Territorial militia is placed on a war footing! Stewart's speech in favor of the repeal of the drummer law was one f the best yet heard in the Council. Little Miss "Sierra Bonita" has not yet made her appearance, but the event may be looked for at any mo ment. The Press banquet comes off on lie 19th. The boys are hard at work, and a brilliant success is already as sured. Cactus. Bread.

The Unknown Dead One or the Slysterles of Phoenician History . On north Montezuma street, east side,between Washington and Adams streets, are the ruins of an old and large adobe building, a portion of which till recently was used for the purposes of a city prison, the other parts long since having gone into disuse and the walls fallen in. The building "was erected about eleven or twelve years ago by John Aver ish and was used as a dance house for some length of time after its con- struction, and was "run" by several successive parties, as such institu tions usually are, owing to the uni stable aud unreliable conditions that attach themselves to such a trade The building finally fell into the hands of Ochoa & Co., who now own it. Tuesday evening as a Mexican la- borer was loosening up the old adobes for tbe purpose of removing such of them as might be fit for use, he worked down to the original level of the ground and was horrified by dis- coveiing the remains of a man The flesh had disappeared from the bones, but the bones yet retained considerable of animal matter, an evidence that the owner has not been dead very many years. Portions of the clothing were also found, the shirt being woolen and having a green strip in it, but so tar decayed that it crumbles to pieces at a touch. The rumor of the discovery of the skeleton soon set imaginations to work and the theory of a murder in the dance house and the burial of the murdered man beneath the floor seemed to be the most sensational and was most generally talked up and speculated upon. The skeleton is that of a full grown finely developed man, the skull being somewhat above the average in sized and well formed The bones are undoubted those of a white man, as they lack the reddish tinge of the bones of an Indian Or Mexican and are not so white as those of the negro race. The Her ald reporter, on visiting the scene of the discovery, was oblige to acknowl edge to himself that the sensational talk of the streets was more than likely mere talk, and that the chances are that tbe remains are those of some drunk or tramp who was lying within the building when the walls fell. The remains are evidently on the surface of the ground as will be seen by a little survey nf the ruins, and the chances are this is the solu tion of the case. Syrup of -Flgrs.
