FIFTH YEAR. PHOENIX, ARIZONA, FRIDAY MORNING. AUGUST hi, 1894. VOL. V. NO. 87. Men, others Boys. M 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 an amply supply of the de sired size to select from.

The Peoples Party county convention was held yesterday at Gardiner's hall ; a county ticket was nominated, dele gates appointed to the territorial con vention, a county central committee chosen and such other work performed as was necessary to make an opening campaign. The meeting was called to order short ly before noon by George K. Miller, of Tempe. W. A. Bancroft and S. S. Green were put in nomination for the office of tem porary chairman. The choice by ballot fell upon Mr. Bancroft. J. W. Curns was elected temporary secretary. A committee of five on credentials, J. S. Mosier, M. H. Reno, G. B. Dykes, G. H. Sayler and D.

Winters, M. E. Clanton, J. S. Mosier, D. B. Wright and W. E. Miller. The convention was adjourned until 1 o'clock. At that hour and for an hour there after the platform committee was still engaged in the preparation of the doc ument. The committee on permanent organi zation and order of business reported recommending that the temporary or ganization be continued, that a plat form be adopted, that each pre. cinct not provided for by the credentials committee be allowed a voice in the convention, that delegates to the territorial convention be selected, that a county central com mittee be appointed according to an apportionment which was offered and that the convention then proceed with nominations, beginning with council man. The committee on platform was still not ready and an attempt was made to go on with the order of business. ThiB economy of time waa successfully op posed on the ground that until there was a platform there coald be no nomi nation of candidates since they would have no ground to stand on. The con vention settled down in resignation to wait. Judge G. W. Woy, of Mesa.a prom inent politician of Colorado two years ago was called to the stage. Judge Woy is a pleasing and foricble speaker and, by the way, was a powerful factor in the overthrow of the Republican party in Colorado. The judge said he was the apostle of a new dispensation, the advertising agent of a circus in a big tent, one which had been a side show, but was bound soon to become the biggest one on earth. Education, he said, made populists; education in the school of experience, that education which comes from a chafing collar, threadbare clothing and broken boots, the education of poverty. Whatever the government had once been, it was no longer a government by the majority. A powerful minority created by a protective tariff and other unjust legislation had obtained C3nf.rol and impoverished the masses. The progress of the country was rapid and unhealthy, a sign of the growing power of capital. "Progress," said he, "means dhiategration." "The only relief," he added in speak ing of the discouraging situation, "is in cutting down our diet." He held up to ridicule the inconsistency of the iate I Democratic convention in endorsing ! Cleveland in one paragraph of its plat form and in the next advocating the free coinage of diver. Judge Woy's speech was cut short by the appearance of the platform commit tee which presented the following re port : Whereas, In this country of unlim ited resources, mineral, agricultural and manufacturing, we find ourselves on the verge of financial ruin, and real izing that the class legislation by bor.h of the old parties is the direct cause, we therefore adopt the following platform of principles. We hereby reaffirm the principles enunciated in the Omaha platform adopted in 1892; Recognizing that water economy is the subject of overshadowing import ance to the people of the country, we therefore demand the government own ership and control of distribution of water in the arid regions. We farther demand eo far as Arizona is concerned, that only reasonable rates be fixed for the price of water, said water to be delivered by the measure ment known as miners' measurement, no more water to be paid for than is actually delivered ; and that water com panies be prohibited from selling or disposing of water so as to deprive prior water users of a supply of water neces sary to irrigate in a proper manner the lands for which water has been so ap propriated, and in order to facilitate the proper distribution of water we recom mend that a provision be made for the election of officers, whose duty it shall be to supervise the supply of water and determine the question of priority of use and prevent waste. We demand the immediate admission of Arizona into the union as a state. We demand that the question of equal suffrage without distinction of sex be submitted to a vote of the people as soon as practicable. Inasmuch as the contraction of money in circulation has reduced dis astrously the price of all products, making it difficult to pay debts and taxes ; public expenditures should also be reduced by an economical adminis tration of county affairs by the reduc tion of fees and salaries in the ratio of the reduction in the price of pro duce, so as to reduce taxation and re lieve the taxpayer of all unnecessary burdens. The report originally contained the Omaha platform in full and it was read, but at the suggestion of Judge Wov the convention was content with endorsing it and omitting it from the local platform. A great deal of time was wasted in the discussion of the manner of choos ing delegates to the territorial conven tion. The delegation was finally made 'up as follows : Tempe F. A. Hough, W. H. Win ters. Mesa G. W. Woy. Lehi E. Crismon. West end of valley D. B. Harrer, M. E. Clanton. Phoenix S. S. Greene, B. T. Gillett, M. H. Reno. The convention then proceeded to the nomination of a county ticket. W. H. Winters of Tempe, was nominated for the council by acclamation. There were six candidates for the nomination for the assembly : M. H. Reno, Phoe nix; V. A. Hough, Tempe; S. S. Green, Phoenix; J. S. Mosier, Orme, and W. C. Deputy, Tempe. and tihas. Mullins, Tempe. Messrs. Hough, Green, Mosier and Mullins were chosen as fol lows: Reno, 30; Houfch, 45; Green, 42 ; Mosier, 33 ; Deputy, 22 ; Mullins. 52. The following nominations were made by acclamation : Sheriff, D. H. Goodin ; district attorney, F. H. Lyman ; pro bate judge, M. T. Phillips. M. W. Messenger and JoBiah Harbert were nominated for treasurer and it was de veloped that nobody knew whether the gentlemen were Populists. It was finally decided that Mr. Harbert was and he was nominated. The rest of the ticket was made up as follows : Recorder, Geo. P. Dykes; assessor, Geo. . Clark; supervisors, M. E. Clanton and Geo. H. Sayler. The nomination for surveyor was passed to the county central commit tee. The following gentlemen were named as members of that committee: Phoenix J. Q. White, R. E. Farring ton, J. W. Norton, J. W. Curns. Tempe G. W. Nichols, J. K. Smith. Mesa J. M. CoBby, G. P. Dykes. Lehi J. Johnson. Buckeye and Enterprise M. E. Clanton. Jordan J. W. Fitzhugh. Riverside B. Ford. Cartwright C. V. Shawver. Orme J. S. Mosier. Alhambra J. J. Johnson. The convention then adjourned sine die. In the matter of members and en ihusia6m it was the most successful Peoples Party convention ever held in Arizona. HAD HARNESS FOR SALE. Jose Rodriguez Is in Jail for Steal ing. Yesterday morning Jose Rodriguez was carrying a set of harness down street, hunting a second hand store. He passed the place of J. A. Piattner, the harness dealer, whose general in terest in the subject of harness had been intensified by a description of a set of harness which had been stolen from a customer of hia named Wm. Riley. He accordingly stopped Rodriguez and agreed to buy the harness if the Mexican could identify himself and would him a bill of sale. Rodriguez tried to furnish identification by an' other Mexican whom nobodv knew In the meantime Mr. Piattner sent for Riley who identified the harness Rodriguez admitted everything neces sary. He was given a hearing before Justice Kiccaid and was held to the grand jury under a bail of $200. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powdet World's Fair Highest Medal and Diploma. ONLY LOCAL. Interpretation by. New York Catholics Of Satolli's Views Upon 1 Liquor Selling. The Ablegate, They Say, Meant Only the Catholics of Ohio. Therefore the Knights Organize a Fully Equipped and Old Time Excursion Party. By trie Associated Press. New Yoke, Aug. 30. The first excur sion from New York of an exclusive Catholic society since Mgr. Satolli, Archbishop Corrigan and Bishop Wat- terson have expressed themselves on the liquor traffic, was run out today by the united branches of the Catholic Knights of America. The question whether the knights would sell liquor was settled by the sight of their baggage today. There was on board everything in liquids from beer to champagne. When one of the mana iters was asked if liquor was to be sold, he replied, "certamlv ; the bar privilege has been let and we have as much right to sell liquor as any other excursion party. We do not think that letter of Mgr. Satolli in regard to the stand taken by Bishop Watterson had any reference whatever to this diocese. We think it was confined only to the diocese of Ohio. Newspaper comment on this matter has been uncalled for." LOCAL BRIEFS. Tonight Dr. Helm starts upon his trip to tne northweBt. After today the afternoon stage for Tempe will start an hour earlier.

Jose Ochoa Arrested for an Almost Forgotten Crime, i Jose Ochoa was arrested yesterday by Sheriff Drais, of Pinal county, for an al most forgotten murder.

About eight years ago there was a dance at the house of a Mexican at idamsville in Pinal county. There was also a great deal of whisky, and there was a row. The next morning the house was deserted ; all that re mained was the boJy of a man who had been stabbed to death. The authori ities were unabld to find out about the circumstances of the murder and could not even learn the name of the mur derer, and so the affair was all but for gottem.
