THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE Id, 1895:
THE ARIZONA REPUBLICS. DAILY AND WEEKLY. MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. OFFICIAL CITY PAPER. PUBLISHED BY THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN COMPANY. BOARD OF DIRECTORS : Lewis Wolfley, Clark Churchill, J. A Black T.J. Wolfley, Edward Butt, Jr. Publication Office: 18 North First Avenue Fleming Block. Telephone No. 47. 1 OUR MOTTO: 16 TO 1. STAND DP FOR ABIE PHOENIX. JUNE 13, 1895. LOOKING FOR SALARY. Mr. William M. Springer, who failed to be re-elected to congress last Novem ber by the Democrats of the thirteenth district of Illinois, was given a consola tion prize of a judgship in the Indian territory by President Cleveland. His nomination has not been- confirmed by the senate and the comptroller does not Bee his way clear to pay the new judge his salary until he has been confirmed. Judge Springer, however, is not satis fied, and he is "'now in Washington to see the attorney-general in' relation to his deferred salary. There is not much money in being a member of congress and twenty years of Mr. Springer's life were spent in serving his country in the house of representatives. As a result although it is merely conjecture Mr. Springer, when caught in the tidal wave of votes last November found him self out of a job and out of money. He had made a reputation as an ultra "tariff reformer," and as such his con dition appealed to President Cleveland, who gave him a life office in the Indian territory. The appointment was in the natureof a banishment from the haunts of civilization.' There was a living in sight, and a salary in the Indian terri tory was better than no salary in Illi nois, and the Democratic vote was shrinking. Therefore Mr. Springer jumped at the proffered judgeship. His banishment, of course, was tempered by the fact that "Buck" Kilgore would also be in the same territory, and misery loves comfort. When the treasury department could not 6ee its wajrclear to pay the salaries of the two judges a situation was cre ated. Even United States judges are expected to pay their bills. While Judge Springer and Judge Kilgore ought to be able to obtain credit for a few months and living is probably heap in the Indian territory they no doubt have a delicacy against running in debt. Judge Sprineer, however, so it appears to us, is wasting car fare and hotel expenses by going to Washington. He ought, as a frugal man, have re mained at his post of banishment and made his apoeals to the attorney-general by letter. He could have stated his case just as well that way. In the meantime President Cleveland, who can well afford to do so, would do a graceful act by loaning the two judges enough money, without interest, to run them until next December.

PfKBnix Building and Loan Association. t R.H.GREENE, Secy I I WhyPayRent? Phoenix, fhe way is clear for sweeping aside much of the debris which has been first to attract trie attention of strangers, and to make at least the ap proaches to the vital center of the town not only attractive but healthful. Everybody can take a hand in this work by being known as heartily in favor of it. Let us have no more obstructive tac tics on the part of those who are amply able to pay their part of the expenses required, but who have so far been the last to do anything for the general wel fare of the town. We have long streets on which there is large travel and much traffic which have never been sidewalked because of the mulish disposition of large property owners to oppose every effort to im prove them. As an example of this fact there is West Washington street an abomination to all who are com pelled to use it in wet weather. Most liberal propositions have been made by contractors, but there was no way to get over the opposition to the improve ment proposed. Its present condition is the most damaging kind of an ad vertisement to the city. But this is only a single instance. There are others in which the owners of large frontage of property refuse to permit anything to be done for the general benefit of the city, but they hold on, hoping that other people will spend money and enhance the value of property so that they may be able to sell out at fancy figures without spend ing a cent themselves. There is a chance now to even nothings in such cases. There should be no disposition to distress the overburdened owners of small homes in carrying on improve ments, but if those who can well afford to join in the work of putting the city in a better shape for the new period of prosperity which is before it, still re fuse to take a place in the procession voluntarily they should be coerced by public sentiment so far as necessary to carry out the spirit of progress now prevailing. A DANGEROUS SENTIMENT. The Qazelte does the colored people an injustice when it asserts that a majority of tbem are other than law abiding, respectable people. There may occasionally be a bad colored man, just as there are bad white men ; but the colored people of Phoenix are by a large majority respectable, industrious and intelligent. A crime committed by a colored man is no worse than the came offense com mitted by a white man, and we are sorry to notice a tendency on the part of anyone .to draw the color line in law when all men are supposed to be equal. The talk about lynch law by the Gazette is also to be deplored. A ca lamity of that kind would do Phoenix an injury that years could not overcome. The law has fixed a Denalty for every offense, and that penalty and no other should be meted out to the offender, without regard to color or condition. That is the way to build up a law abiding community, in which all men and all classes may receive exact justice. JOHN J. INGALLS. The railroad men of Kansas have de clared for Ingalls for president. Said one of them: "Ingalls is the sort of timber the sturdy American can point to as re liable as Providence and firm as a rock. I believe he is honest and wherever I have been the people as a whole have confidence in him. There are none to besmirch him but the would-be office holder. He is conversant with the prac tical situations of the lower classes at well as the upper ; and he has got the nerve and the stamina, although only a shadow physically to stand by his con victions in the face of all selfish classes of conscienceless political manipulators in Christendom." It is not unlikely that the "cloud the size of a man's hand," may extend to a National whirlwind. Ingalls' posi tion on the Bilver question ia O. K. and there is a latent sentiment in his be half which only needs slight cultivat ing to gain gigantic proportions. Let Kansas' brainy laboring men have the credit of starting the blast. There is a demand for a western man and why not Ingalls, a solid silver ad. vocate and the peer of any Republican in the Nation? An exchange calls attention to the fact that there is about four times as much silver as gold in the United States treasury, and asks why it is that the gold is circulating among the people and the silver remains in the treasury vaults. There is do reason why the gold circulates among the people be cause it doesn't. What eold there is in the country outside of the government's vaults is in somedody else's vaults. A gold com is rarely seen in ordinary bus nees any more as compared with other forms of currency. The reason the sil ver remains in the treasury vaults is be cause the treasury officials absolutely refuse to pay it out for any purpose whatever except in the redemption of silver certificates. In such cases it can not be avoided, but it is done under protest. Col. Edward Butt, who has pur chased the Thibodo drug store and be come identified with the business in terests of the city, is a most valuable acquisition to Phcsnix. He is a drug gist of many years' standing and was one of the most popular men in Kan sas, having served for four terms as county .'treasurer of Nemaha county. The writer has known him for twenty years as an upright business man and enter prising citizen. Dr. O. J. Thibodo, who retires from active business after a quarter of a century, will be missed from commercial circles. He has the good will of all our people and hosts of friends, among them Thk Republican, who wish him all the enjoyment which should follow a useful and honorable business career. The opening op the Lower Gila Val ley country to settlement by the com pletion of the great dam and canal means homes for thousands of people. Why men and women will ruBh to steriie regions like Oklahoma when the' rich valleys of Arizona offer such superb inducements is one of the mysteries not easily Bolved. The president, of course, should have appointed someone else than a corporation lawyer as attorney gen eral, but it wouldn't bave been regular. That is, it woutdn't have been regular under this administration. Silveb leaders will promote the suc cess of their cause if they will press men like Teller, Bland and Judge Cald well to the front, and keep theAltgelds, Weavers and Donnellys as far in the background as possible.
