A French journal relates an incident in which a haughty functionary re ceived what in the vernacular of our own country would be called a "neat set-down." This haughty person was a member of the chamber of deputies and much given to long speeches. One day he found another deputy convers ing in the lobby with a man whose face seemed familiar to him, but whom he could not remember. He fancied the man must be an intruding journalist. "Pardon me," he said to the other man, "but whom have we here?" "Allow me to introduce to you," an swered the deputy, "the man who has written more falsehoods and stupidities than any other man living." "Indeed!" said the great man. "Then my supposition was correct that he is a journalist?" "Not at all; he is the official reporter of the chamber." Coin and Bullion. San Fkancisco, May 8.

Calculations From Two Bases Con cerning the Extent ot Phoenix Republicanism. The reaction which follows an elec tion prevailed yesterday. There was as usual an array of explanations of the result, thus showing the truth of that ancient proposition that the hind sight exceeds the foresight in accuracy. Nobody could be found though who doubted that Phoenix is Republican ; there are only differences of opinion as to the straight Republican majority. The contest between no two candi dates was conclusive on this point. I Democrats are inclined to believe that the vote for recorder more nearly re presented the strength of both parties. If that ia so the city is Republican by 125. But that contest was certainly not an index. Maj. Schwartz it ie known received the support of certain Republican elements and it is equally well known that a strong Democratic influence was employed in favor of Jobs. There is of course aio means of knowing how nearly equal these in fluences were. Republicans think the vote for treasurer is the correct basis from which to estimate the relative strength of the two parties. Both candidates were thoroughly representative. Nei ther is a professional politician and both enjoy the highest confidence not only of their respective parties but of both or all parties. Neither cared par ticularly for office and it -yas therefore the least warmly contestadi, Under these circumstances there is no good reason for believing that any considerable number of Democrats scratched Irvine or that any Republi cans failed to vote for Christy. On this theory the Republican majority is in the neighborhood of 176. which is prob ably not far out of the way. Tho Populist vote cut a greater or less figure in the election. It was par ticularly manifest in the third ward, where Phillips had a starter of fifty votes. The Populist vote having been solidified no where else there is no means of estimating th strength of it. The Populists themselves claim 125 vo.es which can be depended upon in all sorts of political weather. There is generally satisfaction over the reault. It might of course have been more acceptable to Republicans who thoroughly regret the loss ot the mayoralty, the marshalship and the Third ward councilman. Democrats, though they expected everything, are supremely thankful in the light of the showing of the Re publican complexion of the town, that they got anything. A meeting of the present common council, perhaps the last, will be held tonight. The vote will be canvassed and such unfinished business as may come up will be transacted. According to custom the new administration will probably be inducted at this meeting aim uegin uuHiness at once. INCOMING OF CAPITAL. Monied Men Attracted By Our New Mines. Cochise County Fast Comlnsr to the Front-Our Gold a Mlshty Magnet. From the Tombstone Prospector. M. F. Clancy, a well-known eastern journalist, and for a long time manager of tho M. & B. R. R., at Detroit, Mich., spent Sunday in Tombstone, and made the Prospector office a pleasant call. Mr. Clancy is here to look at a min ing proposition in the new gold district, twenty-four miles northeast of Tomb stone. The gentleman represents a syndicate of capitalists in Detroit, among whom are E. N. Dillon, the millionaire copper man, and J. H. Creaton, Jr., of lumber fame, and should be enter into negotiations for property in this section work would be pushed on a large scale. Mr. Clancy left this morning for the camp and will remain therefor a few days. An expert, in the person of Tho9. Bates, who is a well-known Col orado gentleman of experience, ac companies him. Samples will be taken and a complete examination made. The name of the owner of the mine is withheld until more definite steps look ing to the final purchase is made, which will be made known shortly. Suffice it to say that the new gold district is drawing the attention of capitalists from the money centers and that sev eral extensive sales with subsequent working of the mines on a large scale that will follow ned not be surprising, and thus the new camp will achieve an eminence of mining importance Fecond to none in the trrritory. In speaking of the silver situation in the east, Mr. Clancy, who is a staunch advocate of Iree coinage, and a cloe observer, said : "The party which comes out boldly and unequivocally for free coinage in '96 will sweep the coun try and elect its ticket by an over whelming majority. The sentiment in favor of silver is very strong in the east, and notwithstanding the tone of some of the eastern press the people are flocking to the silver standard." It is gratifying to meet an eastern newspaperman who is a friend to sil ver, and who being conversant with political doings in that section, his opinion that silver is the paramount is sue in the coming campaign is no idle talk.

The Noted Correspon dent's View With Regard to Japan ese Occupation. It is Better for All That the Japs Withdraw from China. Jaoan Has Already Gained What She Fought for the Indepen dence of Corea. ' By the Associated rrjsg. Marietta, O., Mav 8. James Creel man, the war correspondent, sava the action of Russia in forcing Japan to abandon all ports of consequence on the Chinese mainland will prove a blessing to the civilized world. It means that Corea is to be absolutely in dependent. Creelman declares that Russia was justified in believing that Japan in tended to gradually annex the Corean peninsula. With Japan guarding one side of the gulf and China the other Europe would find ' itself powerless to deal with either nation. Russia has in no sense taken from Jaoan the legi timate fruits of the war. The Japanese have from the beeinning declared that the sole object of the struggle was to free Corea. ; Mr. Creelman is seriously alarmed because nothing has been heard recent ly from Cowan of the London Times and Mr. Ward of the Pall Mall Gazette. After the massacre at Port Arthur Eu ropean residents were always in dan ger among the Japanese troops. AN EFFECTIVE DEFENSE. A Discovery Forced Upon Local Naturalists. Coffee Ai's menagerie is short one member a large green lizard. It would never have been made a part of the aggregation if en expert naturalist, had been consulted. For a week or more at times the vicinity within a. block of the menagerie has been filled' with a dark yellow smell whieb seemedt to invite the presence oi deadly con tagions. Nobody had ever smelled any thing like it before and nobody could' classify it or guers whence it proceeded. . At "last the lizard was suspected and it was finally discovered that the rep tile had a way of emitting his perfume whenever it was molested by an owl in the same cage. The smell was ita means of self-defense.. The lizard was given its liberty almost simultaneously' with the diecovery of its habits. PROMOTERS OF TRUTH. Growth of the Peach Pickers' Or ganization. Louis B. Hayes and Geo. T.Johnston, the territorial oreanizsrs of the cele brated Peach Picker association, have returned to the city, having instituted lodges in Williams and Preseott. This is one of the celebrated half million clubs, whose charter embraces the five states and territories of Tfxas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colo rado. During their visit in Preseott, accom panied by two of the fair devotees of the order, they proceeded to the cele brated spring of the Hassayampa to procure a supply of this water, which is used in all their initiatory exercises. Eighteen miles distant from Preccott, in the mountain fastness, 8,000 feet above the sea level in the face of an almost inaccessible precipice, sruhea forth the spring the fountain head of the celebrated Hassayampa. The wondeiful properties of these re nowned waters were well known to the ancient Aztecs, hundreds of years be fore the storming of the City of Mexico by Cortez. The order of the Peach Pickers is but a reorganization on a larger scale of a society which has existed since, and hundreds of yea's before Coiumbus planted the holy cross on the shores of America, but whuae ramifications once extended from the borders of Oregon to the confines of Chili. One of the ferand tenets of the Peach Pickers is truth, and like the waters of the Pool of Siioam of bible times, these waters have their peculiar prop erties, one cf which is. that the one partaking of them will feel it Jiis duty to ever epsak the truth.
