Grouchy didn't appear, neither did anvbodv else who should have been there. Everybody seemed to have forgotten the date Reference is made by the above dis jointed observations to the Democratic territorial committee meeting which was set for yesterday the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo. June 18 was chosen by the committee, or so much of it as made two unsuccessful attempts to hold a meeting last spring, and in the interim the historic date seems to have been lost sight of. There was a sad lack of harmony at those two abortive attemnts to meet in the apparent interest of the territorial Democratic party. Although there was not a sufficient aggregation of Demo crats there, there were too many kinds of them. There were eome Gazette Democrats, there were eome adminis tration Democrats, and there were some who were nyether. There were gulick Democrats and there were Barnes Dem ocrats. Thev were going to have har mony if the7 had to fight for it. Har mony was conspicuously ahsent, but the program for the fight was elabo rately planned and present, and only failed for want of numbers. The out side members concluded it was too early to begin hatching harmony, and they Had no interest in the fight. So adjournment was taken to the fatal June 18.

Engagements the Reb els Are Victorious. t A Prominent Chinese Political Leader Set Aside for Of ficial Misconduct. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, June 18. The China Mail says it is reported that Lin Kun Yi, the recognized leader of the Hunan political party, and governor general of the three provinces of Kiangsu, An Hui and Kiangsi, is about to resign. The official reason given is ill health, but the real reason is said to be charges of official misconduct preferred against him. The Mail also says the revolution in Corea has assumed a serious aspect. The number of rebels is Baid to be over 600,000, and they have been drilled in modern style. . The government troopB have been routed in two encounters, on May 16 losing 200 killed. This defeat completely demoralized the govern ment forces. Two-thirds of the popula tion of the country are in sympathy with the rebels. In Chulla Do, the granary of the kingdom, the people of three districts are up in arms against their rulers. In Chin Do, a magistrate was killek, and in Na Choo the whole family of the magistrate, ten in num ber, were killed. A detachment of 900 men Bent against the rebels in this dis trict were afraid to land. Japan has declared Hong Kong to be an infected port and vessels from that place are subject to quarantine. The long drought at Hong Kong to whicb the plague is partly attributed has been broken by coDious rains and when the Batgic sailed it was thought the plague was abating. FIFTEEN YEARS. An Anniversary of the Manufactur n. of Ice In Arizona. Ye3terday was the fifteenth anniver sary of the establishment of one of the most nourishing establishments in Phcenix. Its opening was chronicled on June 18, 1879, by the Phoenix Herald as follows: ' "Phoenix ia suDplied with ice from the only ice factory in the territory, and the first batch of Arizona-made ice was delivered throughout the city this morn ing." The history of that enterprise is inter esting. Its founder was Mr. S. D. Lount, head of the present firm of S. D. Lount & Son. Every cent he possessed was invested in the business, and though ice was a desirable article the popula tion of the city was only 800, so that he was commonly regarded as a visionary person whose early collapse was pre dicted. During the first year there was but fourteen and a half tons sold at six cents a pound delivered on a wheelbarrow which is now fastened overhead in the office of the firm as an honorable me mento of the concern's early struggles. The elder Mr. Lount put in twenty one hours out of every twenty-four during the first year and a calculation of tbe profits showed that he had earned by labor and investment just seventy two cents a day and he was defamed as a monopolist. The sales doubled in the second year and gradually increased though during the first six years the total sales were only 330 tons. From a wheelbarrow grew a hand cart which developed into a one-horse wagon, which has been superceded by several large.ice wagons. Tbe annual product is now extensive and is sold at one-half cent a pound, yet the yearly profits seem to grow in an inverse ratio to tbe decrease in price. During the past three years the en terprise has been conducted chiefly by W. B. Lount, who W8 a boy of 16 when it was launched unrt r apparently un favorable circumstances. Mr. S. D. Lount, who is hardly past middle age, has no other necessary occupation than the entertainment of his grand ehildren. An outgrowth of the business, if not a direct result of it, is that the elder member of the firm is one of the heaviest taxpayers in the county and a man whose financial integrity is un questioned. His success is due not only to his excellent business capacity, nor to his inventive talent which has re suited in the perfection of his extensive plant, but to his unwavering faith in the future of Phoenix.
