Egan Pities the Men Who Pays a Half Dollar to Listen to Ruinous Advice. By the Associated Press. Seattle, Wash., March 19. John M. Egan, president of the General Man agers' Association, who made his ap pearance in the city simultaneously with Debs, said: "I pity the poor devils who go and spend 50 cents to hear him. The only advics they get is to organize and strike again, and the last great tie-up, for which Debs is re sponsible, plainly shows what success he made of it. "The A. R. TJ. will never flourish again, and the only men nowadays who talk of having another strike are those who lost their positions in the last one and are anxious for another in order that they may be able to secure the positions of those foolish enough to go out."

The water of the oceans, notwith standing numerous local influences, is nearly of the same composition in every part of the world. A wniTE rainbow was seen recently at Westnewton, Aspatria, in Cumber land, during a hard frost. It lasted for more than half an hour and was much broader than the ordinary rainbow. Mrs. Newel Case, of Battle Creek, Mich., has a new pair of twin babies, born on different days of the week, different months and different years; one just before and one just after the New Year midnight. So powerful was the force of water ejected from a geyser well on the farm of John Sholl, in Bloomington, 111., that it threw a stream one hundred and twenty-five feet high. A half-inch board held over the stream was cut in two in twenty seconds. STRONGAPPEAL. Continued from first page. seat everywhere. With individuals this is frequently the case, as it is impossi ble to have the county , court house at every man's door. But I submit that it is unfair and unjust to subject the industry and trade of a whole com munity of thousands of people to this unnecessary burden. The simple logical remedy to right all this wrong is to form a new county with the county seat in easy access to this large business community. With this end in view we seek to establish the new county of Grant. The people of the proposed new coun ty are not asking Pima county to carry any burden for them. They propose to pay their proportion of the existing county debt, as is shown in sections 17 and 18. The new county does not pro pose to shirk any responsibility. We only ask to be allowed to 'depart in peace. There is no possible contingency whereby the new county of Grant can burden either the county of Pima or the territory at large. What we ask is no new thing it iB the history of all the states, at first di vided into large districts or counties, when later they become settled when the population multiplies and towns and cities spiing up, the large counties are divided and the county seat brought nearer to the people. This is the greatest sign of prosperity any section can have. What. can be said against this new county? How can the seat of Pima fairly object? Will they say we cannot sustain ourselves? We refer to a list of our taxable property to refute this argument. Figures and statistics prove that the property assessment within the new county is more than sufficient to support the new county desired, and if economy be exercised, to reduce the rate of taxation. It has been published and repub lished in the Oasis, Border Vidette and other papers showing the resources and liabilities of Pima county and the con ditions that will exist in both counties in the event of the division of Pima county, so that it is unnecessary to tase up time in going over this again. It has been stated that Nogales is strongly in favor of division, and why shouldn't she be ? Nogales pays over $10,000 in taxes. A conservative estimate made by an experienced business man, puts it that Nogales business men pay out over $10, 000 more by having to go to Tucson on business before the courts and in the county offices. Add to this an equal amount for loss of time a conservative estimate and division will save Nogales alone a sum equal to two-thirds of the revenue the proposed new county now pays into the county of Pima. And the rest of the newconnty would save in time and distance the other one-third. And as to the county seat. The seat of govern ment, whether of a nation, state or county, if located with reference to the convenience of the inhabitants of the region governed should be located as nearly as possible at the center of population. In regard to the protests made against county division, I think I can safely say that no proposition was ever advanced suggesting a change of any kind in the condition of public affairs, affecting either state or nation or anv political subdivision, which met unani mous approval by all persons it affected. Objections to any proposition should be considered at their real value. Are they actuated by individual self inter est? Are they such as should influence fair, reasoning men to abandon ad vocacy of the proposition ? Objections to county division by parties living out side the proposed new county must be from selfish, individual interest, and as such can have very little weight or in fluence with this body. Those who signed petitions in favor of county di vision represent over 85 per cent of the taxable property and over 90 per cent of the bona fide citizens and taxpayers of the proposed new county. It is said that a few of the heavy tax payers protest against division. Here comes a question : Is the comfort and convenience of a citizen who pays a small tax to be of lese consideration than those of a person who payB a larger tax? After division the heaviest taxpayer will not pay a cent more of taxes than he now pays. Is it because he has more wealth that his wishes should be considered before those of his less wealthy neighbor? I believe in giving the wishes of the poor man as much consideration as those of the rich man, and whether the petitions be few or many, and whatever may be the con dition or circumstances of the peti tioner, the facts and arguments pre sented by them are of equal weight and are consequently entitled to equal influence. One protest was made because the county seat may not, after the division, be placed to suit a few individuals, and as to the Oro Blanco and Arivaca dis trict, I wrote tp parties asking how many in those districts were in favor of county diuision, and the answer I re ceived was a petition signed by fifty citizens from there praying for division. They also sent a statement saying that eighty-five percent of all the citi zens they met Bi'gned the petition. Since that time I have received other petitions from the same place. The fact that a portion of the land embraced in the boundaries of the proposed new county is in dispute as land grants, does not enter fairly into the question of the propriety of the division, because to whomsoever it may belong, however the title to the land in dispute may be ultimately determined, the land itself is subject to taxation. I am now paying, and have for years, paid taxes on land claimed by the Camou party, and the title to which is now a matter of litigation in the United S'ates land court. This bill has been presented in other houses in this territory. .There is a principle lying underneath it that can not be killed. It will keep on coming up until it iB passed, because it is founded on justice, reason and right. The people of my whole section, of both and all parties, rise up as one man and ask this legislative assembly togemancipate them, and I believe that this honorable body will pass this bill.
