The special artist employed by The Republican presents to our readers this morniii for fheir inspection and edi Scation, the chief characters in a grand eircus-bunco game, just now being practiced upon the people. The artist portrays the inside work ings of the Dolitical ring organired to Gontrol the new state of Arizona, and until the state is admitted the terri torial government and institutions. The work of the artist is true to life. He has a keen conception of the pur ges of the corrupt ring and of the re ybta&n they bear to each other and to e general public and taxpayers of the territory. As will, be -observed the artist in cludes so called members of both parties in his pictorial menagerie. And that is where the reallv vicious part af the bunco game begins. There is no chance for honest people. It is the purpose of the ring to win, no matter which party ostensibly succeeds. And having won to continue to grow fat and prosperous from the earnings of the taxpayers. That is the intention of the shell-game manipulators, ticket I UNDERWEAR i IN AJUIL, Sizes, t Styles I and.

In addition to the boodle, the two firBt have their eyes on seats in the United States Senate, and the last a Federal judgeship. The senatorial aspirants are already running the show upon this plan and the shell-game fakirs and ticket sellers are sounding the praises of their bosses. It is the purpose of the clown to control a few Republican members of the first state legislature, and of the ring mister to buy a few Democratic mem bers, then the music will play, the fakirs will shout, the grand combination will more and Arizona will send one so- called Republican and one so-called Democrat to the United States Senate. What a pretty combination that is and how well it looks upon the bill boards. The harangue of the ticket seller and of the bunco man appears also, according to oar artist, to have attracted many people to the show. But will they go out and tell others that they liked it? Here the effort of the artist ceases. He has exposed to the readers of The Republican the in side of one of the greatest political bunco circus-games ever organizad in any state. Those who have paid their money and seen the show will agree with the artist; those who have not, if they are wise, will take his word for it and stay away. Part of the people can be fooled part of the time, but we hardly think they can be bitten by the fake combination exposed by the artist. If they permit themselves to be, they hardly deserve the sympathy which unfortunate peo ple usually expect. As A result of experiments to show the effect of electricity on growing grain, French scientists have invented a machine, the geomagnetifere, for the distribution of electric currents under the surface of cultivated fields. Its purpose is to bring electricity in con tact with the roots of the grain or plant, and thereby stimulate growth Roughly, speaking, the geomagnetifere is a tall pole, with a number of copper spikes at the top to collect electricity from the atmosphere, and with con ductors along the side to lead the gathered electric fluid to the base, where wires ramify it through the soil. The use of this device increases the productivity of a given area by 50 per cent, while the cost is much less than that of manure necessary to effect the same result. The council has very properly order ed a grade established and the ordinan ces revised, both of which Bhould have been dene long ago. Now let the coun cil take np the question of sanitary measures for the city. Sooner or later the city must own its sewer system. Why not settle the matter now? When the Mesa railroad is completed ceveral trains will run between Mesa and Phoenix each way iaily. It is a pity the depot facilities of the M. & P. are no better. The company -ought to take steps to secure a central terminal point. The Review has not suspended, but was issued again yesterday. It is just as well for Bro. Mills to keep his weather eye open. If he don't the Octopus will have the Review, and Mills will be looking for a job. A Kansas genius claims that grass hoppers can be manufactured into a very good imitation of butter. This adds a new terror to housekeeping. Shall we have to boil our butter, too, before using? All the political campaigns this year should be as short as possible, for we shall have politics enough next near to make a duck sea-sick. The Octopus papers are busily en gaged in defending their master. Of course, he squeezed them a little harder. Several business blocks and a num ber of handsome residences are project ed. Phoenix is all right. The "new woman" is being over worked. Give the old man a chance. A busy fall and winter season is con fidently expected. Another month and fall weather will begin. The U. S. Gov't Reports show Royal Baking Powder superior to s.11 others. AN OWEN LETTER. To Governor L. C. Hughes: By the favor of Hoke Smith, the' dicta oi Cleveland and sharp practice at cnicago, you were transferred from the undignified "Pin Head Hughes" to governor Hughes, a man of importance holding a responsible office and ex ercising great authority over the good people ot Arizona. Surprising as was this great and sudden change to all parties here, it perhaps was to you a still greater sur prise. If you had padlocked your lips, only exerciBine vour dignities in the gubernatorial strut you so readily as sumed, your subjects mignt not nave detected the ears of the ass under the lion's skin : but un fortunately you never appreciated the fact that silence is golden and being governor could not resist the temp tation to explain to awaiting world the way it was done, as an inspiration to as piring genius like yourself, desirous to rise from the harlequin hero of the beer garden to a ruler of the people. But in doing all this you are indiscreet, governor, you discredit your friends and disgrace the administration that honors you. on know very well that you could never have gone to Chicago, had Democrats imagined that you would have been admitted to the Con vention, and you should never have ex posed your rascality and the Democratic trickery that gave you a voice in the National pow pow. Why did you say that first you pledged your vote to Boarke Cochran for Hill and next to Don Dickinson and Governor Camp bell for Cleveland, and that these parties pledged in return anything you might want? That you voted for Cleveland because he was the strongest and received as pay your commission as governor? In the start you did well, governor, very well indeed ; you secured the appointment of Bruce, Meade and Manning to lucrative offices ; they gave you a certificate of character at Wash ington, they joined with you in de nouncing the Democratic masses of Arizona as members of the vicious and criminal classes, and you helped them aa they helped you. You made a strong cabinet, Heney, attorney gen eral; Jbleming, treasurer; and some people thought you would be a success ; but the tongue is with you a most un ruly member, you talk most unwisely at times. Because you believe that all men are liars, and with the small boy that a heaven from which they are excluded would be most lonesome with only God and George Washington for company, it is no reason that you should establish yourself as a leigti mate decendant of Annanias and Sophira. You have gone far enough in this direction, and you should take a halt. A friend of mine says your examination before Olive and Duncan was rich, rare and racy. You conld not remember that you had ev refused to answer in court because ryour anewer might criminate you. You were fired from office by Safford because you were a Democrat, you did not know what you were doing when you caused the suits instituted by Attorney-General Heney to be dismissed, you were never a party to a combine on printing, you never knew that your private secretary was dividing his salary with your son John, you never held the veto over members of the last legislature to force the passage of the laws creatine a board of control and a commissioner of immigration f,r each of the counties, all of which facts I am told were fully established. If what you say is true, perhaps you were right in entering this general denial. If it is true as you say that you have made Governor Campbell, of Ohio, your broker to dispose of $500,000 of territorial bonds at 5 per cent commis sion, in return for favors past and yet to come, and if Campbell is greater in the patronage broker business than Hoke Smith or Grover Cleveland, then you are right and can afford to snap your fingers at an outraged public who can do nothing towards your removal. It looks now as if you were right. That Cleveland and his secretary have bunkoed the people of Arizona and that you would remain their governor nntil the turning tide giveB us a good Republican in '96. So my advice to you is to make hay while the sun shines. Choose as your agents discreet men, who understand the science of addition, division and silence. You have a subsidized press to do your bidding, and with your board of con trol you have the revenues of the terri tory at your disposal. In your book of hypocritical philosophy it is written that the earth and the f ullnees thereof belongs to the saints of the Lord. As bead saint take all you can get ; it is your last chance. You were a traitor when a Republi can and yonr more recent treason to Democracy will not help you, however, much Fleming may bow, Leitch may water and Dunbar may reap. Truly yours, Civicus. ACEVEDO'S SLAYER Gives Himself Up at Tucson, Arizona. Peralta Claims That He Can Prove Beyond a Doubt His Act Was Justifiable. By the Associated FresB. Tucson, Ariz., Aug. 3. About a week ago Jose Acevedo, foreman of the big cattle ranch of the Cameron Cattle com pany south of here, was ambushed and killed by Francisco Peralta, who Bhot him six times. ' Peralta escaped into Mexico from the sheriff and all trace lost. Thia afternoon he walked into the sheriff's office here and gave himself up. An old feud caused the deed. Friends claim that Peralts can clear himself, while Acevedo's friends claim it was a cold-blooded mnrder. ABOUT MAD DOCS. The Sex of Dogrs With Relation to Hydrophobia. Col. Chas. D. Poston has been trying to establish communication with the censuB department with reference to dogs, a subject which has lately become a face with him. The colonel has a theory based noon observation, that only male dogs are affected with rabies. He has made diligent inquiry in private circles and has found no one who has ever seen or heard of a hydrophobic female dog. The census department may have overlooked this matter and it has certainly never received any no tice by scientific persons. If the theory should be established it will be an in teresting and a useful one. Grand Army Excursion. Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix rail way tickets on Bale for G. A.
