The Democrats have nominated for the legislature in Graham county, a candidate so benighted, so ignorant, and so far behind the times that it is hardly possible that progressive and wide-awake ceunty will elect him. This is not said because he is a Democrat, Should the Republicans nominate a man so unfit for office, we should de nounce him in terms equally severe. - The following in this connection from the Globe Silver Belt voices our views in the matter: "In nominating George Skinner for the aasem bly the Democracy of Graham county has shown themselves either obiivous of his war upon the newspaper press, while a member of the 17th legislative assembly in 1892, or else they have rendered themselves open to the suspicion of indorsing his views in that respect; as well as his reference to the ignorance of his constituents of whom he asserted in a set speech on the floor of the house, that "but one person In six reads newspapers." This assertion of Mr. Skinner was reported in The Arizona Republican, of April 7, and not contradicted by either Mr. Skinner or the Democratic organ of Graham county. "The Belt of April 15, 1892, in its dis avowal of Skinner's marked estimate of his mentally uncultivated neighbors, had this to say : "With no disrespect to Mr. Skinner's opinion of the ignor ance of Arizonans, we cannot concede that so many of them are bo void of the desire to Know what is transpiring beyond the smoke of their chimneys as to not read a newspaper. To believe otherwise would carry us back to 1681 when England interdicted printing in the colonies upon any pretext what ever. But why should Mr. Skinner discriminate against the press alone? It, as well as common schools, it an educator; and while that is the fact, why did he not in his bill also attempt to legislate against the lightning's flash and electric dashes which, aa soon as the keys are touched, becomes an edu cator. The telephone and phonograph may also be classed with the school master, and, strange to say, Skinner's attempt to handicap education was ex clusively confined to the newspaper, which daily enterB every household and familiarly converses with millions. "The vote of the house on Skinner's bill, on its final passage, was ayes, 7; nays, 15; absent, 2. "George W. P. Hunt's motion to re consider the vote was lost, as was in tended it should be, so as to place it forever beyond legislative resurrection." THE WAR IN ASIA. If it be true, as it seems to be, that the Japanese have beaten the Chinese in a great battle in Corea and occupied the mountain passes leading into Man churia, it is quite probable that China will Boon sue for peace.' Japan controls the sea, eo that China cannot land troops upon the coast, and if the moun tain passes are occupied and fortified Japan can hold Corea against China. It is not impossible that Japan might capture Peking; the English and French troops made easy work of cap turing Peking in 1860, and it is not likely that Peking could relatively make any better defense today than it did thirty-five years ago against the European methods of warfare adopted by the Japanese. China is in great danger of domestic dissensions ; she is a country of mag nificent distances ; she has no railroads by which she can rapidly assemble sup plies and concentrate her military pop ulation. If the reported great victory by the Japanese proves to be authentic and the mountain passes leading into Mauchuria are in the hands of Japan, they can be quickly rendered impreg nable by fortifications armed with can non and defended by infantry. Thb newspapers are having a good deal to say about Ingersoll's converts to the idea that a man has the right to take his life when existence becomes a burden. It is doubtful whether suicide is more common now than it was before "Pagan Bob" gave that method of quiting the world hie open sanction. It was not a wise nor a brave thing for him to do to advise his fellow creatures to "quit the game" when the chances are against them, but is safe to say that the man who deliberately pro jects himself into eternity has some reason for doing so which is a good deal more potent than the mere fact that Mr. Ingersoll has decided that persons have a right to cease living when they become tired of this world. If the spread of cholera in Europe continues, it will be well for our au thorities on this side of the ocean to keep a sharp lookout for its approach. It is said to have taken on an especially threatening phase in Galicia, and in other districts it has made alarming progress. And on of the most signifi cant factB regarding its advance is that riots have occurred at several points where the authorities have undertaken to enforce proper sanitary measures. It is in such unenlightened and presuma bly filthy localities that the malady thrives. The civic federation of Chicago makes straight out allegations that the police of that city is an organized black mailing force, as bad as the police force of New York. It shows that gamblers pay from $9,000 to $30,000 per month for the privilege of plying their vocation. The store of the merchant who doesn't advertise is like the north pole in one respect nobody finds it. But it is different in another respect nobody tries to find it. It took a year oi Democracy to con vince the country that the G. O. P. really deserved its name of grand old party. If the Chinese misfortunes continue, Li Hung Chang will soon be called on to give up a lung and a kidney or two. It is believed . that the free wool clause in the new tariff bill will add 10,000 to the Republican vote in Ohio. Yodno Breckinridge is apparently of the opinion that the family is not yet sufficiently disgraced. SERVANTS ON INSTALMENTS. It Takes Six in Guatemala to Do the Work of One Girl Hare. The American woman, when she grumbles at the generality of servants, doesn't know when she is well oft. If she could spend a year at housekeeping in Guatemala she would come back to the United States and pass the rest of her life in peace and contentment, says the JSew xork Journal. In Guatemala the servants are either Indians or half-breeds. They will live on black beans and tortillas, and as to waes, they are content for a month with, what a servant girl receives here. But no American housekeeper would feel inclined to charge a servant board. You hire a Guatemala woman, for in stance, as a cook. Then you must hire a man to keep the fire going-. If he is away, the cook will let her fire go out sooner than debase her dignity by putr ting on more fuel. A third servant must be furnished to put the crude articles of food into shape for handling by the cook. A fourth is needed to do all the carrying. Still another must do the dish washing. Altogether, a half-dozen servants are needed to get an ordinary breakfast for three or four persons. A bright, in telligent, sturdy servant in this coun try would accomplish the same feat all by herself in an hour or less. It is comparatively inexpensive to maintain a household of twelve or fifteen ser vants in Guatemala, but they are a ter rible trial to an American woman. A TERRIBLE HAWK. An Enemy That Strikes Terror to Feath ered Demizeng of the Bush. The author of "The Naturalist in La Plata" gives an impressive description of the terror produced by the appear ance of a rather small hawk, of a spe cies unknown to him, although he has seen it a hundred times. . It is a marsh hawk. That is to say it seeks its prey in marshes. I have frequently seen all the inhabi tants of a marsh struck with panic, act ing as if demented and suddenly grown careless to all other dangers. On such occasions I have looked up, confident of seeing this particular hawk suspended above them in the sky. All birds that happen to be on the wing drop into the reeds or water as if shot. Ducks away from the shore stretch out their necks horizontally and drag their bodies, as if wounded, into closer cover. Not one bird is found bold enough to rise and wheel about the marauder a usual proceeding in the case of other hawks; while at every sudden stoop of the falcon a low cry of terror rises from the birds underneath a sound expressive of an emotion so contagious that it. quickly runs like a murmur all over the marsh, as if a gust of wind had swept moaning through the rushes. i As long as the falcon hangs overhead, always at a height of about forty yards, threatening at intervals to dash down, this murmuring sound, made up of many hundreds of ' individual cries, is heard swelling and dying away, and occasionally, when he drops lower than usual, it rises to a sharp scream of ter ror. Sometimes, when I have been riding over marshy ground, one of these hawks has placed himself directly over my head, within fifteen or twenty yards. It has perhaps acquired the habit of following horsemen in this way, in order to strike at any birds driven up. Once my horse almost trod on a couple of snipe squatting, terrified, in the short grass. The instant they rose the hawk struck at one of them, the end of his wing smiting my cheek vio lently as he stooped. The snipe escaped by diving under the bridle, and im mediately dropped on the other side of me; and the hawk, rising, flew away. Writers on vital statistics state that there are two persons sick for every death during the year. It has been calculated that there are at least 20,000 proverbs circulating among liuropean natives alone. Of 1,000 men who marry, 332 marry younger women, 579 marry women of the same age, and 89 marry older women. BANKING. Jambs A. Fleming, President. THE PINK United S IN ARIZONA.
