OUit MOTTO: FreeCoinage--16tol STAND UP FOR ARIZONA. PBCENIX. JUIY 34. 1895. REPUDIATES HIMSELF. Ta9 psoo'.e of Arizona have been dis miyed at tbe hypocrisy, deceit and cor ruption of the territorial administra tion, but after all it is cot much worse than the National administration. The only difference is that a closer com munication with the territorial ad ministration breeds a greater contempt for it. - .'. Secretary Hoke Smith is the latest member of the misfit aggregation at present ruling the' country, to display his hypocrisy. ; In his explanation of his free coinage letter of. a few years ago', he discredits, and .repudiates him self. He states that he did advocate free coinage bvt he has since made a .study of the subject and determined that this country could not maintain silver at par without foreign aid. Hav ing come to this conclusion, he has since opposed independent action by the United States. Such an explanation as that on the part of a man making such pretentions as Secretary Smith simply makes him absurd. The very first proposition that Just Received a new line of r In sizes to fit big and little, ! Greene Fleming Block t Summe Slim, i The Hatter. 5 a careful man considers in connection j with this question is whether or not this government would maintain free coinage without an international agree ment. Of course the goldites do not think much about that, being against the principle of bimetallism, but any one who believes the bimetallic system is the better, first studies the prob ability of this Nation being able to re establish it without foreign co-operation. If he is satisfied on that point be advocates independent free coinage, but if he does not think that the end can be reached by this country acting alone, he refuses to support independent ac tion. Mr. Smith says that he advocat ed free coinage without having studied the matter. Mind you, he was not en gaged in a business where he coald not be expected to give such questions serious thought: he was an editor en gaged in editing one of the leading pa pers of the South. If he neglected to give the subject proper study he was totally unworthy of the position that he occupied. But we suspect that Mr. Smith did give the silver problem careful study and fully realized that the United States could establish free coinage with out foreign assistance. But he has be come a member of a goldite administra tion and is under obligations to assist, or thinks he is, in defeating the free coinage movement. It has no doubt been suggested to him that he could materially assist the cause .by holding himself up before the country s one who had blindly advocated free coinage but who, after investigation, had been convinced that such a policy would not be safe. S3 we have the Georgian stood up be fore the country as the great example of free coinage error; but the people will want to know if one who is con fessedly so careless of first princi ples ib fit to hold any responsible posi tion. However, it is, perhaps, not to be wondered at that a man who has been associated with this administration should have made up his mind that the United States could not maintain an American policy on any subject. For two years we have seen the head of tbe administration and all under him danc ing about to foreign music, and associa tion with the performance has no doubt been sufficient to induce the conviction that the United States is an insignific ant dependency that jhould not be so foolish as to entertain any idea on any subject without first consulting Great Britain. - AN OFF YEAR. There will be comparatively little in terest in politics throughout the coun try this fall on account of the few state elections that will take place. In Massachusetts, as usual, an elec tion for every office from governor down to member of the house of representa tives will take place November 5. On the same date Mississippi will elect a governor and entire state ticket ; New Jersey a governor, seven state senators and six assemblymen ; Ohio a governor, part of a state ticket and a legislature that will elect a successor to Calvin S. Brice ; Utah, its first state ticket ; Iowa, a governor, lieutenant-governor and partial state ticket ; Kentucky, an en tire state ticket and a legislature that will elect a successor to Senator Black burn; Maryland, a governor, comp troller, attorney-general, state trea surer, fourteen senators and a Btate as sembly. Virginia, Pennsylvania and Nebraska will elect a few nnimportant officers. New York will elect a secretary of state, controller, treasurer, attorney general, state engineer and surveyor, a judge of the court of appeals, eighteen supreme court judges and entire legis lature. October 7, Connecticut will hold town elections and vote upon con stitaitonal amendments. The examination into Mark Twain's financial condition brought out a fact that might have been expected, his books selling the best today are his earliest ones, "Roughing It," "In nocents Abroad," "The Gilded Age" and "Tom Sawyer. Marcus declares that "The Stolen White Elephant" was a flat failure. As for his income, he had not the slightest idea what it was. He had received checks and had cashed them and spent the monev. That was all he knew and all he could tell. Why should the mayor and city councilmen devote their time to the in- terests of the people without pay? They ought to receive a liberal compen sation for their services. And so should the treasurer and the city at torney. The meagre salary paid the city attorney is a disgrace to a city of the size of Phoenix. That official should receive a salary ot at least $1,200 a year, besides due compensation for extra and accumulated labor. The Boihd of Control had better get back from the seaside and go to work with a basket gathering up those "im provements" on the insane asylum for which $28,000 is to be expended. It is lucky, however, that the porches went down before they had a chance to preci pitate a lot of the unfortunate inmates to a horrible death. Times are certainly improving. Sec retary Hoke Smith has just given his cousin, who was formerly a police court lawyer in Washington, a fee of $24,000 for looking after an Indian claim for the government. This is better than the cousin could do in Republican flush times. A New York paper tells a long story of the way Senator Gorman of Mary land is being turned down. The Mary land senator has frequently been turned down on paper, but, as theEnglish lady said of Gladstone, he is pretty apt to bob up at the nick of time. If the porches at the asylum were half as bad as claimed by the Gazette some one was criminally negligent; and they never ought to be put back again except in the most substantial and workmanlike manner. It is recalled to tbe credit of bachelor President Buchanan that he spared newspaper readers a world of idiocy about christening the White House baby. The wild wavesmay be saying a great many things this year, but the bathing suits are eo loud that they drown the murmur of the water. Even when the "new woman" be comes an accomplished fact the unfeel ing husband will continue to refer to "the old woman." The presidential candidate with the hardest neck will feel least the in evitable blow. . They cannot all be nominated. Bicycles in Jerusalem and Syria !

The wisdom of the national commit tee in selecting a city eo centrally lo cated, easy ot access, as Louisville, Ky., for the twenty-ninth' annual encamp ment of the Grand Army of the Repub- ic, September 11th to 14th, is fuliv justified, judging from he numerous inquiries received from all parts of the country relative to transportation facili ties, passenger rates, limits of tickets, etc. In anticipation of a verv large atten dance, the Baltimore & Ohio South western railway (formerly the O. & M. R'y), the leading route to Louisville from the weet, north and east, has made preparations to afford visitors every facility, both in the way of low rates and fast trains, handsomely and comfortably equipped, from all its ter minal points. Three daily trains St. Louis to Louisville; two trains' daily (except Sunday) Beardstown and Springfield to Louisville; three daily trains Cincinnati to Louisville; two daily trains Parkersbqrg to Louisville.

In addition there will be cheap excursions run from Louis ville to the various battlefields in the vicinity. The citizens of Louisville are a unit in their expression of according to their guests a royal eutertainment during the encampment. -Any further particulars desired will be cheerfully furnished on application to A. C. Goodrich, passenger agent of the B. & O. S-W. Ry., Kansas City, Mo., or to J. M. Cbesbrough, general passenger agent, St. Louis Mo. Fourth SeaShore Excursion.
