Tl'CSON: A PACT IN KVIDKXC!:.
If a wise advoiate Mnglit to prove that an ad
vanced slate of clviMz.ilion existed in Arizona Tent
tory be would include Iu evident o two f.itts, simple
but powerfully suggestive; the one being that Tucson
Is agitating the question of leguliting the speed of
automobiles mi her thotoughfaies. Hie other that com
plete and stnctl.v lirst clip, safe deposit vaults luve
been provided for Tucson's banking patrons.
If a Uepublic.iu enemy of the Omnibus Statehood
bill were asked to describe Tucson, which is tjpical
of territorial civilization, be would saj that it is
situated In tbe '"wilds" of Arizona, far past the "fron
tier." n speck on the map of the vast "'beyond." tbe
home of the buffalo. Apache, wolf, coyote and jack
rabbit a lone, little sandy spot somewhere in the
midst of a cactus grove.
In fact. Tucson roiloctlng its territoiitl surround
Ings, is a beautiful citj, not as latge as Washington.
Nevv Yoik, l!o!oit or I'biladelphli. but older and
equally well established. The same animals, the
linman bipeds, extant in the Hast may be found
traversing its grad.d, well-paved sttcets, and Its bulls
and bears, wolves, even Its 'Indians" are preeiselj ,
like those of Xevv York. j
It has .-400 tame school chi'dren and a number
of expensive modern school buildings superior in
point of aicbitecttire to many in the great Histcm1
centers though the facts might be slow to peneti.ite

If Hie Clolie is insinuating that Tbe Republic has
nothing to i.a.v about the gosipped possibility f
another election ot Senator Vest. The Republic, for
information, will tepcat us well known opinion. If
Senator Vest were a candidate the State or Missouri
would not I e stupid enough to voluntarily lose the
national piestige vvliiih Ceorge Vest, the unrivnled
debater and trained statesman, confers upon its name
in the. L'nlted States Senate. People who are compos

Provided George Vest considers bis health suf
lieientlv reestablished for active service, the I.egls
liture could best nicer the will of the voters by elect
ing bim again, whether or not he Is a candidate.
If the Globe will quote the foregoing the peculiar
sect of party bigots not the better Republicans
which forms its constituency will understand all that
the entire Democracy or Missouii, with The Republic,
has to say about Geoige (!. Vest.
Hut what the Globe is dnvlug at is e Governor
Stone. Not to make two lilies of a elieuj. let's huish
that falsehood with the other. The "Republic has
with appropiiate force delivered it opinion about
the Senatorsliip contest if there Is to be a contest.
That opinion is one of the most iitnullled Indifference.
Governor Stone is not a man to excite admiration.
He is not an orator, debater, student and thinker like
Vest. He is less of a speaker than Goveinoi Dockery
and docs not lemotcly appio.tdi the present Gov ei nor
iu administrative grasp. He lias not the penetiutiiu
mind and lucid statement of Judge De Aruiond lie
has not Chump Clnrk's attractive stjle or mental
H.vmpathy with Western life and spirit. He has not
the intensity of Intellectual conviction vvhidi has been
shown for a lifetime by William II. Wallace of Kan
sas City. Comparisons might be earned further, but
these are the men who have at difleieut times been
nswoiatcd with a possibility of election to the Pnited
States Senate. Other Democrats qualified for the
Senatoiship need not be Introduced.
On the other baud. The Republic would not be a
trust worthy Democratic newspaper if it cuihl not do
justice to a candidate for Demociatic nomination
whom It would not Itself select if the choice weie te
fened to its judgment.
Governor Stone lias made a fair, open icd active
canvass for two yens. Competitors had ii'iunilaiil
opportunity to contest. Newspapeis which aie now
making a virtue of discovering faults m'slit luve
better begun the light befoie the I.cgish.tiu vv.n
elected. They did not know much of Missouii hls
loiy if they did not a year ago have all the miteil.il
which they are now so lavishly parading.
The allegations against Governor Stone may be
summed up in the charge that since leaving the Gov
ernorship lie has represented many large enipoiations
as attorney; some of them coipoiations deeply inler
isted in legislation. Tliete is no cliaige that lie used
corrupt means in behalf of his clients. There Is no
charge that he did anything which any lawyer in
gocd standing might not have done without lcuirring
piofc-siotml cilthisin. Tlieic is no charge that he
did not conscientiously, as an advocate, believe that
the causes he repiesented weie just ones.
Here ciitcts what e.vGovcrnor Stephens and the
anil Stone newspapers would probably call the chief
cpustiuti. It would go to the sincerity of Governor
Stone's political speeches, taken in comparison with
the course of bis legal practice. The Republic mlclit
agiee tint a political leader ought to live on snow
J and sleep under a fence rather than accept employ -I
ment from iiistitutiops concerned in leginlation. Hut
I law j cis do net look at the problem that way; and
The Republic eah'iot now ice-all any political leaders
who have educated themselves to the snow habit
when there wis respectable employment on pleasant
terms pressing for acceptance.
Governor Stone, as far as The Republic knows,
has obeyed the rules of professional ethics as a law
yer. As a political leader he has exercised bis right
of free speech. There is nothing to justify special
opposition to him on the ground of uulitnes
