WHOLE NO. 5374.
NEW SEEIES VOL. XXII. NO. 22, PHOENIX, MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA TERRITORY, THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1896. It looks sa though Ballard had got into the wrong pew last night, end he looked like it too. Wakner Miller seems suddenly to have wrested the leadership of New York Kspublicios from Tom Piatt. Matt Quay siw Mr. Piatt, then he oalled on Mr. MoKinley. Put the point9 together and see what kind of a "spark" you get. Thb Demooratio primaries this Bfter- noon are wen 8o"u ' - vote with on avidity that indioatea a long time between chances. Thb Demooratio primaries are in oarnest and yet there is nothing on earth to hold primaries for, more than to go to Chicago and yell. Congress is' likely to spend some time bnooking out the power of the President to issue bonds ad iibitum, if indications are worlh anything. TheEisi has assumed a position of antagonism to Mr. MoKinley's expressed financial views. The "aound money" advocates do not tbink be is sa'e for their side of the question. Mr. Monihon and Mr. Ganz are the men whom the cities of the town have selected irrespective of parly be the nominees respectively for Mayor and Councilman from the sscond wurd. Amid the rather mixed politioa that prevails in this city the court has been somewhat unnoticed but nevertneiess is makinar lezal history in the right direotion with great expedition and good effect . If the dispatches from the east tell what is happening the conclusion can no be avoided that Clarkson, Quay and McKioley are about to come to under standing: just what U will be the next taw days will probably unfold. Senator Quay yesterday oalled on Mr. MoKinley at his home in Canton, Ohio. The eubjeot of conversation be tween those two political giants on the occasion was not made, known, but it is fair to presume that it was important to the future of the nation. As a oitizan remarked today "look at the adobe building on the corner of Second avenue and Adams street and the three story brick building on the oornerjof Second avenue and Washing ton street, one block distant, and you have an indication of the public spirit in the respective candidates for Mayor." Ex-Senator W. A. Waiace, of Pennsylvania, who died yesterday, was a brother of the late Judge D. H. Wal lace of this city, and on uncle of Mrs. Ada Irvin, the eminent land attorney of this city. Senator Wallace was for many years one of the most prominent oitizens of western Pennsylvania. Political meetings . are rapidly be coming a thing of doubtful character in this oity when they can be seized upon and controled by non-residents, non taxpayers and people who have no in terest in them on 'earth except future spoils. Ik is time that our municipal affairs be put in the bands of the peo ple who pay the taxes. Mr. Cleveland has rewarded Com missioner Liiohren for carrying out his pension policy by giving him a life job si U. S. Judge for the District of Min nesota. Dominick I. Murphy, of Phila delphia, now First Deputy, has -been nominated to succeed Lochren as Com missioner, ondN. P. T. Dana, now chief of a division in the office, to succeed Murpby. There will no change in the Cleveland Pension policy, until the 4th of next March. The Territorial Damocracy is rolling in trouble aod vexation of spirit. It has become necessary to get a Republi can into the Territorial offices hern and there to get the business done, end the Demooratio fellows have begun to flee the party in consequenoe, and it is only by free use of the lariat and corral that there is cot a general stampede If there is anything a Democrat oan't steed it is to see Demooratio office in the bands of Republican partisans. J.D. Monihon was nominated last evening at the cit:zina' convention not withstanding tha attempt of a little coterie of Democrats to play in bed faith with the RapubliCHns. Mr. Monihon is known to every mn and woman citizeD of the city as a sterling, honest man who does what he "thicks is right. He was regularly nominated on the agree ment, as vre understand it, between the Demooratio and Republican oity com mittees, Bad therefore to be honored by both parties notwithstanding tlre are office seekers attempting die6B6;sfactioi, among Dmocraio voters. Mr. Moni hon made one of the best; Mayors the oity ever had, aod we cfrubt no' will do ev-?n better now, sira be has had opportunity to observe tiha needs of the city from the outside. i The thermometer is on a boom today for the first time this season. It reiiob ed 108 at some places about town . More cyolooes todsy in the east, principally in the Mississippi valley. The citizens of this region of country oan be content that it is merely hot here. Los Angeles tried 102 on the ther mometer yesterday and it went hard with the usually cool people of that burg. Phoenix enjoyed 104 in the resi dence portions of the city and felt com fortable. It now appears that the real cause of the big three oombine is coming to the surface and it proves to have ori ginally been a determination that Ex President Harrison should cot egai be nominated. It has successfully ac oompliehed the business of running him off the track. Now that the business of eleoting and instructing delegates to St. Louis has hec-n concluded it is found that 740 delegates will be for bimetallism and "sound money" in that convention, and 173 wili be for free silver, or doubtful. Thirty-three States declared straight and solid for "sound money," or bi metalliem, which may or may not be sourd, according to the opinion of the ndividual. The S. P. P. & P. night train is at trading cooeiuerabis travel northward as it is. The oompaoy now contemplates an excursion rote from Phoenix to Preecott and other points ia the moun tains which will be so enticing that Phoenix is likely to lose three-fourths of her population for two or three weeks in the midst of the hot season. These new excursion rates will be announped before long. About six men in the Senate will pro vent the adopting of Senator Morgan's joint resolution instructing the Presi dent to recognize Cuban belligerency, tltbough all the other senators, nine- teaths of the House, and en overwhel ming majority of the people of this oountry favor its adoption. It is the same old story. This handfull of Sena tors have indicated their intention to talk all summer if neoa3sary, to prevent a vote on Senator Morgan's resolution and Che other Senators know that the Senate rules are such that it is only a question of physical endurance that will stand in the way of the threat being carried out. Consequently there is not much probability that the resolution will be seriously pushed. Some day the Senate will probably have rules which will enable the majority of its members and not a determined obstinate minor ity to, say what shall be done and to do it. Untilitben, wise men will not expeot too much from the Senate. It may be true that "enormous amounts" of money ere lying idle in Europe that would be sent to this coun try for investment if these capitalists were assured of its "return in as good money" as they send; it does not look very probable, however.when the money markets of Europe are continually drawing on the United States for more and more money that has for years been invested here and are getting it back in solid g lid. It looks as though there were bs great scarcity of money in Europe as elsewhere. But be that as it may it is time that the people of the United Slates fnmith sufficient mocey for their own enterprises. The time when this great people should cesse to be a debtor nation has about arrived; great enterprises beyond our financial power os a nation have been wrought out; great and long transcontinental lines of railroad have been built and for many years have been paying proposi- sitions and the foreign oapital in them should be withdrawn; the future of railroad building in the United States oan never be beyond two or three hun dreds of miles in a line to close up bo me japs and make thus a great and new line in corjunotion with other roads; in short railroad building in thiB country, is it has exisied, hfcs cotne to an end and with it the greatest enterprises this country has ever sten or will see. There are seme great water wayn to be improved but the one extensive business that remains for capita! is the develop ment cf the water resources of the .treat arid "region and limit will soon oome to that business when onoe cap ital is really interested for the Seld is limited. In" fact the use for foreign money is rapidly: comicer to a close and the "idle money" of. Europe will neces sarily bavejto fiod cew fields for its uce and in fctj hes Rlreedy found it in Africa. Tbis conolry at any rat is powerful enough to control its own financial affairs and from now should furnish every dollar it needs for im- provemanis publio and private, especial ly as our mines furnish about two-tbirds of the gold of the'.world and unlimited quantities cf silver. Let America be American; we have hung onto European coat tails long enough. Up to the present time the publio has not been awre that the ed itor of the Tuoson Star had fl9d the Democratic party and is standing in with Republi cans but it oannot be questioned when he says so himself in the following lan guage taken from his own" paper, the Star of Tuoson. Ha S3ys: "Inasmuch as McKioley will be elected by acclam ation it will be hardly necessary for I more than one delegate from Arizona to be present, as he can do toe snouticg for Arizona. McOord, Ford and Hughes have won their fight in having Arizon endorse the Ohio statesman, so no mat ter what comes they will have their say if McKioley iseleoted." Bucky CNeill proposes to make his way into Congress through sum sort of canal work. In the last issue of bis paper he informs the publio that the Government has - been building canals for the "shopkeepers,"acd thinks it might build oanals for the farmers Bucky has simply overlooked the pur pose of the canal building so far done under the auspices of the Federal Gov eminent. Nob a foot of canal has been built by the Federal Government . for any private citizen or class of private oitizens. Without exception the canals built by the Federal Government are measures of defense, or of water trans portation in oase of war. To be sure these canals have been put to commer cial uses in times ' of peace, but the cause of their existence was net crigi nally a commercial proposition; no class legislation was anticipated. How ever it matters very little what interpre- pretation O'Neill puts on the construc tion of those waterways, or what preju-. dices be may raise against the Federal Government from his interpretation of their purpose, their use and purposes is for the benefit of the American people. To be sure the Federal Government might construct irrigation canals but would it not be better that the states within which lay the lands that need rrigation construct those canals? Cali fornia and Colorado are two notable examples of the state construction or rather promotion of irrigation water ways and both are successful because in each case the people of the state are n teres ted in the development of its territory; but how loDg will it be before the people of the eastern half of the Uait9d States, which needs no irriga tion, will agree to have the publio funds expended for the development of Ari zona or New Mexico or Utah or Colo rado or California? Never; so long bs they have the power in Congress to pre vent it; and very naturally so, unless it can be made to appear that the power and wealth of the east will be inoreased b7 the development of the west; and that is a very diffioult thing to do. It is very fair to presume that before any important development of the irrigation propositions of the west is made by the Federal Government several more gen erations will have gone by, and by that time the states will have grown old in publio irrigation enterprises. In sfcort the only practical development of irri gation must be by the states wherein the arid lands lay; it is by them only that the necessity, the advantages and the prosperity of their citizens on ao oountof such development is appreciat ed. In tha words of a once great gen eral and Democrat, it is a "local issue." The Good Templars. Maricopa County District Lodge will me6t in Mesa on Friday, Jane 5.

Nugent of the Territorial prison op.me in tbis morning to attend the session of tbe United States Court. ClA'lZfcJNS MASS MUKT1NG. J.D. Monihon Nominated For Mayor Ijast Evening. As per the call issued by the chair men of the Rspublioan and Demooratio oity central committees a large number of the citizens of Pboen x met at the oity hall lest evening for the purpose nominating a Mayor and Councilman from the second ward to be voted for at the coming ppeois.1 election. Mr. J. L. B. Aiexaoder called the meetin? to order which f.ic uroused a great deal of -fealing from the fact that Mr. Alexander was uut a resident of the incorporation, ftlr. Alexander stated that the meeticg was oalled for the purpose of discussing the proposed bond issue. As this was not the understanding of those preeent calls were made for the reading of the cli under which the meeting was being held. Mr. Alexander refused to read the call but asked for the election of a chairman. Captain W: A. Hancock 'was planed in nomination for that position, as was also at.tornev Bullard. and a vote beinn taken Mr. Alexander stBted that Mr, Bullard bad been elected From the vote cast it was evident that Mr. Han cock had recaived a majority acd was elected, but Bullard ascended the platform and took possession of the tshair. Mr, Busch was elected Secre tary, but not baing in the ball Mr. John Beck was substituted. About seventeen men mp.de an at tempt to get the floor to plfoe nominB tions before the house for Mayor, but no one sucoeded but Mr. O. A. Luke, who spoke for some time, but without a re sult. As matters were so badly jumbled up that no one could gt any satisfaction a number cf the gsctlemen present left the hall and repaired to one of the rooms down stairs where they organiz ed by electing Mr. R, C. Lowell as Chairman and Attorney Pierce Evans as Ssorstary. They then nominated Mr. J. F. Monihon for Mayor and rati- tied the nomination of Mr. E. Gacz as Comcilman from the second ward, and filed the nominations with Recorder obs. The meeting, which wes still in pro gress up stairs, ratified the nomination of Mr. Burger as Mayor acd ?lr. Gaiz s coudcUkiro for the second ward, and adjourned. These ratifications were also propetly filed with the City Recorder. This morning the reporter called on Mr. Jobs, the City Recorder, and was informed by that Kectleman that both nominations were on file at his efflce at that as the nominations of Mr. Burger and Mr. Ganz had been filed by tbe Democratic convention and the omination of Mr. Gacz had been prop erly filed by the muss meeting he would nter both nominations end the two tickets would be issued for the coming eleotion. Very Hot Democrats. Our Democratic brethren are getting own to business this afternoon and tbe "wings" are slipping each other in the mouth in a most reckless manner. For instance one "wing" issued tbe fol lowing circular on tbe streets: "VOTE BP, BEWARE ! Look to Your Ballots and Scratch the Traitors. "Political matters are assuming pe- nliar phases, oolors and shades in and I bout this oity. It seems that as soon I as one canoerous political sore is healed nother breaks out with the symptoms I f dreaded and alarming virulence on I tbe Democratic party's body, superin- I need by the disease of questionable I methods, which heretofore afflicted the I party, that only promises tbe party's betrayal by the willing tools cf the party's enemies. This is so apparent ready that Bnother era of disoontent not hard to conjure not through hopeB deferred, as was the case while that corrupt acd hypocritical wretch I ho disgraced tbe good name of the Territory was oocupying the office of 1 Governor but tbrouch tbe same ect that pulied the ssme strings on tbe Pin-Heed PuDcet.

Imposing Coronation Ceremonies at Moscow. j of THOUSANDS OF SPECTATORS Witness the Crowning of Nicholas II of Rnssia and His Im perial Consort. Moscow, May 26. Wilh ceremonies more magnificent than the human im- I agination can co:jure, and amid I scene of 6plendor to which a thous3n I pens could do but scant' justice, Nicho I 'as II, who succeeded to the throne on I November 1, 1894, was today crowned as fuler of 100,000,000 of people. I The coronation took place in the I Uatnedral of the Assumption, in the I presence of representatives of every I oivilized people on the face of the globe. o ths princes and nobles ot the land and of representatives of its leading municipalities. The edifice, although the decorations of its interior represent a fabulous expenditure, has seating ospaoity but for a fraction-over 1000 worshipers, and as a consequence but a fifth of those who would otherwise have Dsen bidden to the ceremony were honored wilh the satin casket's wherein reposed, engraved upon a thin gold plate, the invitations to the ceremony All Moscow was early astir, and be fore the sun was high in the heavens that portion of the city between the Kremlin on the one side and the Ca thedral on the other was rendered im passible by the congregation of 100,000 would-be spectators of the imperial pageant; and it was with great difficulty that the troops succeeded in clear ing the roadway and in forming the double guard over the three miles be "ween tne imperial .raises, tne rvremim Bcd the Cathedral. Shortly after 9 o'clock a salute of 100 guns announced that the imperial couple and its brilliant retinue bad left the Muskushnoi. The Czar and Czsrins rode in a carriage which, with the ex ception of the wheels, was completely paneled in gold with elaborate carvings. and drawn by twenty white horses with trappings of tbe earae color. The soldiers btood curb to corb along the entire three-mile route. Baok of them, on either side of the thorough "res, were tnree rows or armed peae 8nte we!1 drilled, to meet any possible iemoiietration or emergenoy, and back oC these again, covering what remaiDeo ot tne sidewalks, as well as the door ways, windows and housetops, were the myriads of spectators. The progress of tbe pageant was fslov, and the Czar and Czarine repeatedly acknowledged with bows and smiles the enthusiast- greeting of tbe populaoa. There wae another salute of artillery, accompanieo with the ringing of all tbe church bellf in the city when the procession reaohed tbe Kremlin, and immediately moved towards the Cathedral. Tbe Czar and Czarine wero met at the entronoe by the Archbishops of Moscow, Novgorod Kieff, with one hundred members of the clergy, attired in magnificent vestments; and while the audience rose to its feet and the choir chanted a Te Deum the procession moved up the central aisle to tbe altar Here beneath two scarlet canopies, surrounded by double-beaded black eagles and black, white and yel- low plumes, the thrones hod been erect- ed. Deoorating the altars were statutes, shrines and ornaments, studded with precious stones that had been gathered together from all parts of the empire A single image of the Virgin was stud- ded with diamonds representing an ex- penditure exceeding halt a million dol lars, the oentral emerald alone beirg valued at 50,000. The Cz3r Kolokoy, or great bell of the KremliD, pealed forth as the imperial pair aeoended to their respeotive thrones, and the robes and regalia were brooght forth and laid ele-iupoa a dias before the altar. The CBremony which followed occupied nearly seven hours. It included the sprinkling of the Czar and Czirice with holy water, the kissing of the orucifix, tbe repeating after the Metropolitan of tbe profession of faith, tbe olothing of tbe Czsr with the imperial mantle of gold and ermine and finally the placing by the Czar of the crown upon his own bead. Then followed the crowning of the Czarina by her huoband and who also invested her with the purple man tie of tbe Order of St. Andrew. Tbe Czarina's crown was of ivory set with diamonds. Her coronation gown was of whits satin trimmed with pearls and diamonds, with an ermine-lined mantle of burnished silver brocade. Its cost wse two hundred thousand dollars, while the necklet and other jewels worn represented an estimated expenditure of a round million. After the crowning oT the Czar, the goiden sceptre of tha Czsr Pall, and which has done service at every corona tion for a hundred years, was handed to Nicholas II, by the Metropolitan; the latter theo repeating the formula of the Greek Church proclaiming His Mejesry Ruler of all tbe Rassias. The closing words were drowned in tbe booming of tbe cannon that announced to the popu lace that another Emperor bad been seated upon the throne of Russia; the air was filled with cheering, and scores of bands stationed on the principal streats led the masses in singing, the Rurisin national anthem, with its re frain of "God Save the Czar." The corsnation an accomplished fact, tbe proceesion reformed in the same order as In the entry, and the imperial pair were eeeorted to the Kremlin, where they will remain in seclusion for rest and recuperation from the fatigue 0f of ton dny for the next twenty-four hours. A number of visitors from the United Statep, outside of the accredited represpntati res of the GovernmeDt.were honored with tickets for the coronation and occupied reserved section of the Cathedral in the west wing. IHPEACH CLEVELAND. Howard of Alabama wants Cleve land Impeached. ILLEGAL SALE OF BONDS. And Several Other Counts Made by the Populist Re presentative. Washington, My 23.

Tbe resolution was as follows: I do impeBch Grover Cleveland, Pres ident of tbe United States of high crime and misdemeanors on tbe following grounds: 1.

When the clerk ceased reading, How- rd was suddenly taken off the floor by Oinley, the floor leeder of the majority who raised the question of considera tion against the resolution. The question wp.s promptly put acd by a practically unanimous vote the House deoiined to giv9 Howard a hear- og. The House then ssttled down to ull routine. The House adopted the conference eport on tbe river and harbor bill. APAOHB DEPREDATIONS. Arrangrmente Being Made to Sup press Ihera. DENVER.May 25. Gen.
