The Ddmooratio brethren seem dis
turbed by the Republican position on
the financial question as voiced by. Mr.
McKinley in Congress in 1890 when he
said in the financial discussion:
"i am ror tne largest uee or silver in
the ourrency of the country. I would
not dishonor it, I would give it equal
credit and honor with gold. I would
make'no discrimination. I would utiliz
both metals as money and discredit
neither. I want tbe double standard."
The Democrats among the A.. P. A.'e
tried to sit down on McKinley and the
order seems to have gotten itself into a
row over that fact. Secret political or-
ganrzition is in direct hostility to tbe
first principles of-free government and

scarcely be able to maintain tbe charac

The city Democracy will put up a
straight Democratic ticket. Perhaps
this is as it should be after all. Tbe
party in power should be held to a strict
accountability for ita acta and a mon
grel city administration is accountable
to nobody for anything. As a Rjpubli-
oaa tbe Herald, understanding that
the party committees had made simply
a suggestion of consolidation on tbe
city election, cow advises that the Re
publicans of the city come to the front
with tbeir ticket and push that ticket
on party lice3'for all it is worth.
The Bloomtiald, Iowa, Republican re--
peats the speech of tbe- Hon. Tbos.
Fitob's, io full, which he made btfore
the Territorial Republican convention
in this city, not long since. It prefaces
the speech with tbe following very flit
tering remark: "While tbe lesser lights
in tbe free silver movement are threat
ening to -Dolt tne parly if tne national
platform is not drawn exactly to suit
tbeir own ideas, such stalwart and well
knowc leader as Tom Fitch of Arizona,
a man of national reputation as a sifver
advocate, and one equal io ability to
toy leader in the movement as an orator
od oamD-iiga speaker, ia open and
s vowed in bis loyalty to tne party.
Col. Fitob's speech is tben repeated in
full. It eertaioly is a very flattering
testimonial to Col. Fitch's ability and
loyalty to tht. Republican party.
Bro. Mortus, of the Mesa Free
Press, has broken loose among the

gry avenues' of the '-fourth estate" till

seotial to a collapsed gastrio ecooo
my, and pencil pushers will use tbe
latest Ed.'son mechanical lightening

"The mellow goose, tbe mallard duck,
tbe blackbird and the crow, will soon be
here from southern lands to watch tbe
cornfields grow; the hungry bawk and
thunder pump will aleo ome and join
tbeir fearful racket witfi tbe bullfrog's

Oce PoDulistio friend Mero says "the
p-e o-p-l-e built the railroads" in Arizona
bv making land ir rants. Mr. Mero
knows that those land grants were ut
terly valueless till the railroads were
built and save them a chance to be
worth something. The people there

those roads. . The Government gave
away something it didn't thiDk rwortb

roads. " .
Gen. Algek who appears to be again
looming up for some prominent position
in disoussinar tbe financial situation of
the KsDublicoo Darty. says: '-If we

Hard Times and What Helps to
Make J tie in So
-cjDitor herald: ice mines are
comparatively idle on account of tbe de
monitization of silver.
Cotton UBed to be king st ten cents a
pound; but wears a poor crown at six or
seven cents. Wheat was good at a dol
lar or b dollar and a half a bushel; but
is chbff at sixty oents. Manufacturers
are languishing; because Americans
cannot compete with foreign labor on a
low tariff.
Tbe last administration paid off two
hundred and fifty odd millions of tbe
public debt; tbe present administrax
Hon bus borrowed, two hundred and
fifty odd millions to pay expenses.
Tbe message of President Dinz shows
a prosperous condition of tffairs in
Mexioa with stiver as a ourreooy even
t depreciated pric98. The silver mines
furnish a domestio market for labor and
consumption, and Mex'cao miners are
importing laborers from Central Amer
ica. ,
Moreover, this is the political quad
rennfal festival of tbe American people;
when they indulge in their favorite in
dustrial pursuit politics.
Who pays 1
the piper?
We sball have to endore tbe present
state of fcff irs a year and more longer
perhaps another four years, as so man
oan be elee'ed on tbe Republican ticket
who straddles silver as McKinley does;
because the silver men won't vote for
him that's why.

An Old Mexican Watchman Severely
Burned. .
Messrs. Bsnt aod Sampson received

Tbe c-imp was composed of tents and

truction. Mr. Bant left tbe camp on Tuesday
morning last and placed an old Mexioan

and gave bim instructions to do bis
cooking outside tbe tents and use every
precaution egainst fire. The following
day the fire occurred, Bnd in his tfforts
to save tbe property Jose was severely
burned. His clothing was entirely
burned from hia body and his condition,
when found, whs such that be bad to be

a burro.
Tbe origin of the fire is unknown, and ,
tbe loss is several hundred dollars.

Unreliable Witnesses to Blame For
the Action of the Advisory
Washington, May 16. Today's ses
sion of tue American Proteotive Asso
ciation of tbe Supreme Council was
tbe moat interesting of the convention
because tbe action of the executive
committee of the advisory board upon
the action o the committee was mad
to the oouaoil late in tbe session. I
was technically aa endorsement of tbe
executive comaiittee. It asserted io
substance that the executive committee
was warranted, in view of the evidence-
presented, of piecing a ban upon Mo
Kmley, but ia addition it states that
further examination of tbeir testimony
by the fall board bas convinced tbe
members that tbe witnesses were uo
reliable and their statements incorrect
Therefore tbe board concludes, that Mc-
H alev siould ba placed oa tbe same
footing so far as the members of tbe A
P. A. are concerned, with other candi
dates for Presidential ' nominations and
not be discriminated against. Appended
to tbe report was a statement ia writing
by delegate Huddleson, of Califor
nia, who asasrta that the committee of
which, he waa chairman, interviewed
McKinley at Canton, O, on the 11th and
the interview was satisfactory.
