FIFTH YEAR. PHCENIX, ARIZONA, THURSDAY MORNING. AUGUST SO, 1891. VOL. V. NO. 86.
Men, Mothers and Boys. The County Concedes What It Doesn't Want And Carries the Rest Triumphantly Away. Old Men like to buy at Goldberg Bros, because they always find an assortment of what they need whether it be a pair of overalls or a fine suit there is always &n amply supply of the de sired size to select from. Mothers prefer to trade at Goldberg Bros, because they are always sure of being waited upon by polite attentive salesmen who under: stand their business, know their stock and how to satisfy the mothers. Boys say Goldberg Bros, is their favorite because suits bought there wear well and look I well, shoes fit and last, and their parents always leave the store in a happy frame of mind pleased with price and quality.

The Democratic county convention of i Maricopa county exists only in the in BANKING. been taken, the business of making a ticket was resumed. D. L. Murray was nominated for treasurer by acclamation. Mr. Murray thanked the delegates for their expres sion of confidence. He took the oath of allegiance to the platform and de posited $2.50. The next was an exciting incident and as usual the expected did not happen. The candidates were Frank Coyle, whose nomination had been almost con ceded, J. C. C. H. Boone, R. B. Vinson of the country and T. H.Saoin of Mesa. Each of the candidates immolated himself on the platform and the ballot ing proceeded. The following is the result by ballots: First Vinson, 31 ; Coyle, 41 ; Boone, 5; Sabin, 15. Second Vinson, 35; Coyle, 44; Sabin, 15. Third Vinson, 46 ; Coyle, 45. Fourth Vinson, 52; Coyle, 45. The deadly south side did it. The most tragic event of the day next ensued, the fight for district attorney. The candidates were B. J. Franklin, L. H. Chalmers and Joseph Campbell. The result was compassed by an oratorbal effort by Col. Franklin. Whatever the delegates may have in tended to do, they didn't do it. They were swept off their feet and dashed along helpless in the flood of eloquence. so extraordinary was the enact pro duced by it that the speech, the only one perhaps that ever moved an azgre- gation of Arizona Democrats, is here produced in part : James A.

What appeared on Thursday to be prime qualifications for claims to pre' ferment at the hands of the late con vention were yesterday demonstrated beyond a doubt to be so. They are the following and rank in importance in the order in which they are named : A for mer residence in Texas, a decided bucolic tendency, and simple and una dorned Democracy. 01 all foreign flow era transplanted on Arizona soil the Texas exotic flourishes most luxuri antly. It sometimes happened that none of the candidates for some particular office were Texans. In sucn cases the prefer ence was given to him who had lived nearest Texas. Missourians were also treated kindly, not on account of the geographical relation of Missouri to Texas, but because there is no more highly esteemed brand of Democracy than the Missouri variety. The attack upon the city democracy as continued with violence and suc cess. It is true that a concession was made to Phoenix by allowing her four candidates, but they are men who are as distinct from the overbearing city de mocracy as if they were registered in the precinct of Ashantee. Besides, for three of these offices the country had no candidate and was only offered a choice between evils. The convention was successful in having had an orderly and dignified ex istence. No opportunity was given to quarrel and cut throats. Those cheer ful incidents will occur later in the sea son. The Democratic countv ticket will look like this : Councilman Emery Kays If. f. farter Assemblymen i NeUsPeierson IW. J. LeBaron Sheriff L. H. Orme Treasurer D.L. Murray Recorder R. B. Vinson District Attorney B. J. Franklin Probate Judge T. C. Jordan assessor a. . caritiey Supervisors )S-?S2 Surrey or F. P. Trott It is agreed by all that the ticket is made up of gentlemen ol excellent character, but a majority of Democrats admit that with two or three exceptions they lack that magnetism or push or whatever it is that insures political suc cess. So the Democracy is wisatiatied with what its representatives have done. HAHDWAUE. HENRY E. KEMP & GO. ARE. Refrigerators. Granite Garden Hose. Vapor Stoves.

When chairman Fickas began pound ing with his gavel upon the table in front of him, seventy-live heavy-eyed delegates partially aroused from a lethargv suoennduced by irregular hours. While Olerk Miller in his rich, resonant, federal voice was reading the roll a half score more of delegates filed in, took their seats with a look of re signation. The galleries were already filled with a crowd of morbid tendencies who did not know that a coroner's jury was in session at the court house, other wise they would have been at the other inquest. Under such gloomy circum stances the last session of the Demo cratic county convention began. Before resuming the disturbance of the day before, E. Irvine who is of a financial turn of mind, reminded the convention that somebody had to pay the fiddler. There was hall rent, a janitor's fee, an ice bill, etc., and who, pray, but the nominees should bear this expense? . It was accordingly agreed to hne each candidate $2.50 upon his con viction of having resided in Texas and having always been a Democrat. Of course a conviction of these offenses was equivalent to a nomination. After this precaution against bankruptcy had Colonel Franklin's Speech. Gentlemen of the convention and fel low Democrats : I heartily congratulate von upon, the harmony and good fellowship that has prevaded this convention. It argues well lor our success, and the great inter est the entire community is taking in its deliberations indicate strongly that Maricopa will hold her place this fall as the Giberalter of Democracy in Art zona. As a Democrat I am proud of the principles of my partv. Thev are in' terwoven and interlocked with the very foundations of our government, pnnci pies as vital and as dear to us as those that animated our fathers upon the field of Lexington and of Bunker Hill. What are the mere aspirations and ambitions of men as compared with the success and maintainance of Democratic principles? Men come and men go but the principles of Democracy will live aB long as our mountains and valleys re main. I come before you as a Demo crat without a blot upon my political record. I have never raised my voice against a nominee of my party, have always fought under its flag whether defeat or victory greeted its march. see betore me men whose locks are tinged with the frosts of the winter of life, who as residents of the grand old state of Missouri remember the days when the ballot box was hedged in by bayonets and infamous test oaths and not a sound of victory greeted its marching columns. It may meet with defeat after defeat yet it keeps its ban ner flying: like the antique wrestler it rises from each successive fall invigor ated rather than weakened by the effort For more than half a century after its foundation by its great apostle, the im mortal JefferBon, it had almost contin ual control of the government. It ex tended our possessions from the Alle-, ghanv mountains to the father of water and thence to the Pacific coast, and caused us as a nation to become the envy of the civilized world. Gentlemen Arizona is the gift of Democracy to the union. This territory. New Mexico Nevada and California came to ub as the results of the Mexican war. a Demo cratic war inaugurated under Mr. Polk and what arithmetician can compute their valuer When we take our position as one of the states of the union we will owe it to the Democracy, for we would have en joyed statehood long ago were it not for .Republican opposition, and we would nave naa two uemocratic senators in congress to make that body m Btrongly Democratic than it is. In all candor, what excuse can the Republican party give to the people of thiB territory for admitting Idaho and Wyoming and refusing Arizona? We excel either of them in all that goes to constitute a prosperous state. I will tell you the reason. It is because the Republican party in congress did not like our politics. The Republican party by its vicious legislation enacted during the years when it had complete control of all branches of the government ere ated the monopolies and colossal trusts that are cow overshadowing congress and are a menace to good government They have legislated for the few at the expense of the many and caused the financial distress and embarassment that is abroad in the land, and with hypocritical cant inquire why the De mocracy nas not remedied all this in the short time since Cleveland began his second term. Why, do they not know, if they do not the people do, that after a long exile from control of the government the Democracy elected its president and the lower house of con gress in 1884, and when our great leader president, Cleveland, had completed his first term and had left a surplus of more than $100,000,000 in the treasury and so aoly conducted our national affairs that American citizenship was elevated throughout the world. He stands to day as a statesman worthy to take his place by the Bide of Jefferson and Jack son. The Republican partv under Mr Harrison looted the treasury. When they met with the Waterloo in 1892 the $100,000,000 was gone and in its place deficit of $50,000,000. This maladmin istration of public affairs, its infamous robber tariff, its crimes against Bilver have resulted to bring about the dis tress now abroad. Who struck down silver in 1873? A Republican congress did it. Who restored silver in 1878 and caused the coinage of hundreds of mil lions of dollars of it? A Democratic congress did it. If you will examine the records you will find that every measure for the re lief of the people meets with Republi can opposition. Is it not amusing to read in some of these Republican plat forms the assertion that its party is In favor of the coinage of silver? It is the arch enemy of that metal and the people cannot be hoodwinked by mere words. In closing, (Jol. franklin delivered a high eulogium of Missouri and Mis sourians, illustrating his points by many amusing and telling anecdotes, bringing down the house with shouts of laughter and thunders of applause at each recital. He promised, if nomi nated and elected, to perform the duties of the office with fidelity and all the ability he possessed and pledged him self to support the platform and resolu tions whether or not. It was clearly evident at the close that the speech had captured the convention, and hiB friends felt as he stepped from the platform that his nomination was assured.' It took only one ballot to settle it : Franklin, 50; Chalmers, 26; Campbell, 18. The colonel made a brief speech in acceptance and the convention waB wild with delight. Ihe contest for probate ludge had been regarded with interest and uncer tainty. There were three candidates. T. C. Jordan, Frank Baxter, the Agua Caliente Agriculturalist, and C. O. Austin, of the south side. The nominees were submitted to the stage ordeal and the delegates were turned loose upon them. Jordan was nominated on the fourth of the following list of ballots : mrst Jordan, 30: Austin. 28: Bax ter, 35. Second Jordan, "1 ; Austin, 21 : Bax ter, 42. Third Jordan, 42: Austin. 10: Bax ter, 42. lourth Jordan, 48: Austin, 8: Bax ter, 38. At this point a delegate said he was hungry and the convention went to dinner..

The firBt half of his speech was lost in the noise. ' sam x . uarxiey was also placed in the nomination. He mounted the stage delivered a biography of himself from which it appeared there were a good many ijarKieys. The speaker had been born in lennessee, and further bright ened his political horoscope by moving to xexas, whence Dy a natural process of gravitation he reached Arizona. That settled it. He was nominated on the third of the three following ballots: t irst Porter, 45 ; Barkley. 43. Second Porter, 44; Barklev, 45. . Third Porter, 40: Berkley". 53.
