GeneralManager. already attracted considerable atten tion, but the remedy has not been dis covered. The proposed reduction of custom duties was but a fraction of the actual reduction. Under an ad valorem j system the actual redaction in the tariff duties can never be estimated. The face of the tariff act may indicate cer tain returre, but in practice it ia im possible to calculate what the receipts will be. It will clearly be the duty of the next congress to provide for additional reve nues, and it is possible that before the arrival of the day for the meeting of the regular session another bond issue will be necessary. The difficulty which will arise when congress meets can be anti cipated. The Republican majority will naturally proceed to provide folr ad ditional and needed revenue upon a business and an American basis. The president, just as naturally, with his usual obstinate disregard for existing conditions, will insist npon his vision ary, theoretical and impracticable reve nue policy. The lesson of the failure of the Gorman tariff act which is not the act which the president sought to have passed has no doubt been lost upon Mr. Cleveland. That will be the con dition to be met when congress meets. The president should make up his mind, after considering carefully the re buke administered to him and his party last November, that his only wise and safe course is to turn the whole matter of providing the necessary re venue over to the Republican congress Mo other plan can be carried out. The people have turned the Democrats out of power and the Republican policy of providing the necessary revenues is the one the country wishes to see put into practice as soon as possible. OUR MOTTO: FreeCoinage--16to 1 STAND CP EOS ARIZONA. PHOENIX. Jl'LY 35, 1893 THE QUESTION OF REVENUE. It is a condition, not a theory, which confronts the National administration The condition is not a new one, by any means, and it is one that not even a juggling with the figures of the tieasury department will change. The adminis tration has already borrowed $112,000,- 000 and by the provisions of the last is sue the gold reserve was to be preserved intact by the syndicate until October 1 A small shipment of gold to Europe laEt' week concerning which Sec retary Carlisle has nothing to say, has revived talk of another bund issue The report of the treasury department for the fiscal year revealed an admitted deficit of $44,000,003, yet since the be ginning of the new year the daily de licit has been about $1,000,000 a day The increase of custom revenues, so hopefully predicted by Secretary Car lisle, has not materialized, although the importations have been largely in' creased. The evil and fraud-encourac ing ad valorem system of levying duties makes it impossible to ascertain the exact value of goods which come here The undervaluation of importations, 4 Just Received : a new line of Soil r Sits, ! in sizes to fit big and little.

However far ehort hey may fall of the purpose set for them, meetinzs of this kind enable a great many persons to see a larger por tion of the country in the course of a year, and so contribute to the sum total of our intelligence as a people. The Republican is a firm advocate of a salary for the mayor and councilmen, but if these gentlemen would take hold of the question of development and public improvement in all departments and stop the parsimonious attitude that some of them have assumed, we could advocate it with a greater degree of con sistency. Why not vote on the ques tion of issuing bonds for street improve ments, for a sewer system and for other necessary municipal improvements at the same time the question of salaries is submitted to the people? i i i EE The British election system may tie superior to ours in eonie respects, but part of what it gains in shortness of campaigns it loses in the wearying pro longation of the voting. It takes us in America a long time to get worked up to the point of casting our ballots for National officers, but the fact that when this is onct accomplished we get through the voting itself between sunrise and Bunset of a single day is certainly some advantage. The Gazette's infantile style of an swering the question as to how it stood in relation to silver may please those who admire amateur journalism, but it hardly meets the requirements of the intelligent people of the territory. Is the Gazette for or against the free coin age of silver? This is an era of record making, and to sit on the fence is as bad a record as getting on the wrong side. USE OF ELECTRICITY. The recent triumph of electricity in California again opens the subject of utilizing the power at the Arizona Falls for the purpose of generating electricity. The successful application of elec- tr'city generated by water-power 24 miles awav to the street mento marks a long stride forward for electricity as a mode of conveying power. The question how far power can be transmitted by the electric cur rent without too heavy a loss is one that has been discussed for many years. There have been those even who doubt ed whether electricity cenerAtpH of Niagara Falls could be made profitably available at Buffalo a distance much les3 than 24 miles. The waters of the American river will be utilized for power to propel Sacramento's street cars, for her mau factories and for lighting purposes. An immense dam has been built atFolsom, creating a reservoir three miles long, and horizontal double turbine wheels are used for applying the power to the generators. The cars are already run ning by electricity generated at this distance, and if the experiment proves wholly successful, the question of ap plication of power at long distances may be considered settled. It is not easy to foresee all that this may mean for the near future, particu larly here in the Salt River valley. If the water power which we have could be utilized for generating electricity, there would be no end to the possibil ities. Power and lights for the whole valley could be furnished, and a. net work of suburban electric railways could be constructed to connect every portion of the valley. This is an open ing for some enterprising capitalist. In ordering a revision and codifica tion of the city ordinances the council has done the wise thing. The city at torney is competent to do the work, and he should be given the fullest lat itude to the end that the work may be well and elaborately done, avoiding a Bimilar expense for several years to come. It is said the porches are to be put back on the asylum building just as they were before the wind blew them away. That Bhould not be permitted. Friends ol patients in the institution should at least see that no such death traps are erected. The piteous appeals of the Tucson Star to the commissioners of immigra tion ought to rouse those gentleuien from the somnolent state. Yes, why don't the commissioners do something? OES it a Bargain.

The control, in this respect, which the president exercises over his immediate political family is absolute; whether he can exert any thing like as great an influence over his party remains to be seen.
