THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 3, 1894.
THE LAST GASP. Close of the Democratic Campaign.; Meeting at Gardiner's Hall Last Night. The Heavy Weights of the Party Brought Into Action. Flowers, Music, Oratory and Two Fatal and Unusual Instances of Oversight. The culmination of the Democratic territorial and county campaign took place at Gardiner's hall last night. There may be scattering shots from country Bchool houses and isolated lo calities tonight and Monday night but the great event of the Democratic can vass is oyer. For several daya prominent Demo cratic chieftains have been flocking to Phoenix from the uttermost parts of the teriitory and everything was ready for the final demonstration but time and Marcus A. Smith, the big medicine man of the tribe. He came yesterday morn ing and there was no "longer need nor excuse for further delay. The ball was moderately well filled and the crowd was orderly, well dressed nd good-looking. There were flowers and muaic. The tuneful efforts of the Pioneer band were supplemented by me democratic mee club, wbose mem bers, Malcolm McNair, J. C. Kellum Oscar Williams and J. D. Martin, have lor weexe gone up and down the coun try foiling the air with so much har mony that the regular song birds, the mocking bird, robin and other feather harmonists having no room for their har- saony have abandoned the country and have gone up Salt river waiting for this Democratic glee club to finish its en garment and come up too. hs. Governor Zalick was made chair man and tnere was a long array of able vice presidents and to the casual ob server it looked as if all details had been properly and carefully arranged. But ttiere had been at least two serious oversights by the committee on arrange ments. Hon. Marcus A. Smith who was next to Mr. Herndon, the principal feature, was forgotten. He waited long ana patiently at nis Hotel tor the recep tion committee to wait upon him. At last he despaired of the committee's ar rival and set out alone for the place of meeting. He wandered around town a long time and finally api-aled to a prominent Republican wo'trt-r to con duct him to the Democratic rendezvous They arrived there some time after the meet ni had begun and the lost dele gate was met by (Jhairman fickas at the head of the stairway and led confusion to the platform. (jjvernor Hueb.es. as the TlRinonratic chef magistrate of the territory and in syuipatny witn tne object ot the meet ing, naturally expected lo be there He, too, waited in his office with his overcoat on his arm for the appearance of the reception committee. He waited in vain. With true Democratic sim- yuuiby ut was iorgoiten, ana witn a due regard for proper form he remained in his office, laid his overcoat aside' and resumed his omcial dutite. i iub meantime ininas were pro gressing alter a lashion at tht hall. Tue baud quit olayijg, th iee club quit singing and tiie thread of events wn3 picked up by Mr. Herndon, who addressed the meeting on national politics and recent Democratic legisla tion. He favored the income tax, but that U already established and so is not an l-sue. He deprecated the objection to it by Mr. Hill and other obstructive Damjcrats. He was also iu favor of the abolition of the sugar trust and made the astounding statement thit tne preFent Democratic c msrress had aimed a partially successtul oiow at the trat. He related th-3 tic: ion that there came near being a $50,000,000 issue under Harrison's admiiiibtration, a statement supposed to off-et the fact that, thre actually was such an issue under Cleveland's administration. Th - speaker reversed to the affairs of himself and Arizona and entered into an explanation ot the circumstances under which as district attorney of Yavapai county he had rendered an op n ion that the mirifs, cUiras, pros pects and holes in the ground were sub jert t.t taxation. Mr. Herndon's -speech was received with a moderate nua-mre of enthusiasm and at- its close Chairman Z ili.-k seemed in douht as to wtiat ought to be done nexi. lie consulted a wuile with his corps of vice presidents. The nature of the conference is necessarily a subject of conjecture but a result of it was that Hon. M. A. Smith waB invited to . ad dress the meeting. At his appearance the Democratic portion ot the audience went wild. Compared with the hearti ness with which he was received the welcome accorded Mr. Herndon seemed a funereal sort of affair. "It's not because Mark is more popu lar than Herndon," said a Democrat in explanation, "but they're taking this way of showing their appreciation of what he has done for the territory." "What has he done?" asked a by stander. Delegate Smith's remarks were not extended. They consisted of a formal eulogy of Mr. Herndon and an arraign ment of the Republican party and a description of the glowing beauties of Democracy in Arizona. The milleninm had come. The lion and the lamb had gone to bed together and the warrine factions were now roosting on the same percn. , Frank Cox made a nice but short speech. The meeting closed with an effort by Hon. J. F. Wilson, Mr. Herndon's lieu tenant. The word "effort" is here used with malice prepense, and was suggest ed by a conversation between two mem bers of the audience. One inquired, "What's he talking about anyway?" "He's aiming at nothing in particu lar," was the reply. "And," said the first, "he hits it on the head every time." As a matter of fact, he did sav that if Herndon was not elected it would be a public calamity and a private disap pointment. There was nothing more to be said. anq tne audience went awav witn a sensation similar to that produced by nestling under a wet blanket. THESE COOL MORNINGS Call for Aj f 4 i UNDERWEAR! A $1,000 BET. A Syndicate of Democratic Capital ists Called. The campaign is warming up proper ly. In Phoenix the political temper ature yesterday reached the high est point touched this season. There had been a great deal of talk of betting and accusations were tossed back and forth of blnffing. Democrats had sums ranging from $50 to $400, which they had been flaunting ostentatiously in crowds where there haopened to be no Republicans of bet ting proclivities, and the word was passed around that the Republicans were unwilling to risk cash upon their convictions. C. M. Carter took a pot shot at the whole covey of Democratic capitalists yesterday and gathered them in. He announced that he had $1,000 that told him that Murphy would be the next delegate to congress. The an nouncement was made so publicly that it couldn't be ignored and something had to be done. There was a skurrying among the bettors to raise the cash to cover Carter's wager. By 3 o'clock they had gotten it together and met at the National Bank of Arizona where it was placed on deposit subject to the order, after the election, of Mr. Carter er (ius Hirschfeldt, who represents the Demo cratic syndicate. Ihere is one chance and onlv one chance in a million that there will be a draw down and that is in the event of Buckey O'Neill's election since the terms of the bet are that either Mumhv or Herndon will be elected.

AN OUTLAWED COMMUNITY a Block 41 A Unique; Defense in Case. The case of Wm. Bernard and wife. arrested for an assault urjon Frank Baptists and a general disturbance' of the peace of the neighborhood of block 41, came before Justice Kincaid. A unique defense was ready, but was not applied. Reprehensible conduct on the part of the defendant was not de nied. It was admitted that Mr. BaD- tisle might have suffered the ill treat ment he complained of at the hands of the defendants, but the defense was everything eoes" in block 41. an out lawed community in which laws are logically inapplicable. If Mr. Baptiste was knocked down, cut or otherwise maltreated, that was precisely what he might havo pxpected to happen to him in that community. That is Dresum- ably what he was there for ; be got it and had no kick coming, and if he was without good ground for complaint the law certainly need not interfere. A concurrent theory was that the Deace of such a neighborhood was imperturbable. Mr. and Mrs. Bernard could not per form impossibilities and therefore it was evident that they had not dis turbed anything in block 41. As well might one attempt to derange the erood order and shock the eood societv of Gehenna. A jury was impaneled and the actual trial was ready to begin when the de fendants decided to plead guilty.
