Ohio Woman Suffered Great Agony From a Terrible Sore Her Story of the Case, and Her Cure. " For many years I was afflicted with a milk leg", and a few years ago it broke out in a sore and spread from my foot to my knee. I suffered great agoDy. It would burn and itch all the time and discharge a great deal. My health was good with the exception of this sore. I tried a great many kinds of salve, but some would irritate the sore 60 that I could hardly stand the pain. I could not go near the fire without suffering intensely. Some one sent me papers containing testimonials of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla, and I told my husband I would like to try this med icine. He got me a bottle and I found it helped me. I kept on taking it until my limb was completely healed. I cannot praise Hood's Sarsaparilla enough for the great benefit it has been to me.

Attorney General Frazier in his opinion on the legality of the Territor- ial bonds on hand, published in this morning's "Gazette," concludes that they are legal, and that their availa bility for sale depends on convincing capitalists that they are legal. This might le a difficult thing to do in the face of the adverse opinion of Judge j' Dillon of Xew York who for more than twenty years has passed upon tae legality or lMmls in about everv " great bond sale in the United States. The more conservative element in Congress is strongly in favor of mak ing this session as short as possible. This sentiment was voiced by Rep resentative Ileatwole. of Minn., when lie said: "In my opinion, this Congress should get through its routine work by May 1 anil adjourn. The smallest amount of legislation will be of the greatest benefit to the country, and if we can finish and go home by that date, a good many millions of our countrymen will rise up and call us blessed."' Speaker Rood says he sees no excuse at present for making the session a very long one. A"Monthly Bulletin of the Bureau of American Republics'' is ' issued from the Government Printing Office at Washington presumably at the cost of the Government. It is in fact a boom journal for Mexico. Central and South America, and this indicates the class of matter it carries. In addition to this matter it has.in the number be fore us.for December. ninety-nine pages of advertising matter that should at the very least be worth s.".0" net. This appears to be a very queer business for tiie Government of the United States to be engaged in if the Government is doing it which is hardly credible. The Government of the United Stats solicitiugadvertise- ments for its publications: Think of it. The Government of the Unired States setting itself up in competition with the newspapers, the magazines pub lished by her citizens: We don't think it. There must 1m? something rotten just aliout tnat point in the conduct of the ".Monthly Bulletin of the Amer ican Republics."' ciouus, tnuufier and lightning seem " to fill the journalistic air in and about this city. There is a terrible hunting for holes and all that sort of thin There is no question aliout it.there has been a looseness about political jouru alism not only in this city but all over the Territory which looseness seems xo nave eioseu in ou some ot the un fortunate newspaper men who prob- ly reflected the sentiments of their influential friends rather than their own. Hon. Mark Smith, Delegate to Con gress, has at length introduced a bill proposing the scheme discussed here - in the Territory for a number of years past to permit Arizona to elect her Governor, Secretary, Treasurer, Aud JtQr Chief Justice and Associate Jus- rices. .-he bill is in the direction of securing our rights as citizens but yet gives us no standing in Congress or in national matters whatever; it simp ly secures the spoils without confer ring the benefits of American citizen ship. the activity in certain quarters m efforts to make the public believe that there is some doubt about the annex ation of Hawaii, indicates that some money is being spent for the purpose of creating anti-annexation sentiment If so, it is being thrown away, as an nexation is absolutely sure to come before the close of this session of Con gress. Two-thirds of the Senate are -ready to vote for the ratification of the annexation treaty, but the rules of the Senate put it in the !over of the oppouents-not more than twenty at the outside-to delay the vote. Should it become apparent that tin's power is being used for filibustering purposes, -annexation wiif tit' secured by legisla tion, which will only need a majority ' vote. The so-called protests of foreign countries against the Dingley tariff law do not seem to have availed any thing more in their effect upon our commerce with those countries than they did in their effect upon Congress. No attention was paid to it by Con gress, aud it seems that commerce is now paying no attention to them. An investigation of the subject shows that the thirteen countries which made formal protests against certain feat ures of the tariff law of 1S07, in the two months in which the details of our exports can be obtained, have purchased $l:il,-H(;..".i:i in value of our products and merchandise, against only .fl07.077,."j.Sf) in the rrorrespondin. months of last year under the Wilson la w. injj It is interesting not to say amusing to compare the various and varvin opinions that are published concern ing the President's message. One is almost led to believe that men and newspapers seem to le dishonest with themselves, they surely are with the public, when from the standpoint ot" itizenship in the country, contemplat- thedevelopment and advancement of the great general interests of a great people, claiming a desire to pro mote the general welfare of the nation, should condemn on the one hand, approve on the other, or recog nize only indifferently on public pre sentation oi uie great questions in volving the nation and the recommen dations of the President thereon, who it is fair to presume is beyond person al bias, sectionalism, ignorance. The facts are the variety of opinions ex pressed are the outgrowth of personal interest alone. Few men now days allow themselves to have ideas be yond their personal and selfish ends. Even when a. man in these times goes to the polls he casts his ballot not so much with a view of electing the man whose name is on that ballot as in the hoie, the strong desire that the elec tion of the candidate will develop for the voter. iosition, favors, honors, or cold dollars. National loyalty, under ordinary circumstances, is set aside and replaced by absolute selfishness; perhaps the majority of men do not know what disinterested loyalty to the nation is; there is no sentiment of the kind, much less is there a principle of the kind iu their make up. News papers, so far as they are concerned. reflii-t tly seutimeuTsof their locality. their constituency. Arizona, through its Governor, is asking to be admitted asa State. The request for Statehood will be submit ted to Congress at the coming session Numerous . reasons are set forth by the Governor, iu a pamphlet of sonu length, why favorable and speedy ac tion should be taken ou the applica tion; and some of these reasons might but for certain conditions now exist ing in the country at large.be regarded as good and sufficient. Notwithstaud ing these conditions, or, perhaps, be cause of them, on the question of ad mission, should it be brought this win- to a vote, the votes of Senators and Representatives from California and elsewhere on this Coast will probably be unanimously for the proposition. The desire, which is natural, if it is not always right to entertain it. to in crease the power of tins section over Federal legislation, will alone serve to consolidate tlierspreseutative strength of this section in aid of Arizona in its efforts to become a State. But still it is certain that its admission will not be yet awhile. Tht! Governor's pamphlet o fiords matter of pride to the people of Ari zona, and to those of other divisions of this Coast region as well. It makes a god showing as to population and alludes jubilantly to its voting strength. One of the Governor's positions, in his pamphlet, is impregnable. He declares and shows that Arizona has as much wealth as the average of the twentv-t.wo slates admitted from 17!)1 to 1S7;. had at the respective dates of their admission. His showing in this regard will satisfy any mmiutain or Pacific Coast .man. though it may be difficult to convince many of the east. This wealth is largely estimated, it is underground, or in the bowels of the i mountains, aud people who are accus tomed to thinkonly of visible property may doubt the Governor's word. All the same, the wealth is there, and the country at large is having the benefit of it. The difficulty in the case is political. In the last I'residential campaign, the Republicans of Arizona were wise and accepted the gold plank of the St. Iouis platform. They were badly beaten in the election for a delegate to Congress, but they succeeded iu al lying themselves with the best and controlling element iu the Republican party, and so have overcome to some extent a widespread prejudice against receiving any more"lree silver Mates. But so long as the delusion shall exist that "free silver" is desirable at the ratio of 10 to 1 or any other false ratio and the country is threatened with the prevalence of this delusion,' so long Arizona will have to wait.

Under the quoted caption of this article the De troit "Journal" expresses itself as fol lows: "Arizona wants to bo admitted as a State. Its population, accordinir. to the last United States census, was o!,0i!0. It is not fair to admit as States Terri tories whose population is less than the ratio allowed a siii-rle Con:rres.s district. To make a comparison with one of our own counties: Sa-rinaw. for instance, has a greater population than Arizona, and is ltetter entitled to have two Senators in Congress and a member of the House than is the Territory. This view of the equities of representation has not hitherto pre vailed and may not in this instance. For example, we may look at Idaho. yomnijr, Montana. New Mexico, anil worst of allNevada. which has a pop ulation of a!Miit the same number as Jackson county.
