We assert that we are tor the free and on Ilmited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 and we hereby instruct the deleiates to the National convention to use every means in their power to secure a clause in the National platform favoring the free and unlimited coin age of silver. "PREDICTION'. There Is considerable figuring go ing on all over the country as to the cnitcome of the presidential election. Every day presents new forma of com binations of states to show an absolute majority ol electoral votes for one or the other of the candidates. Most of these combinations are as kaleidos copic on one side as the other. Here in Phoenix it is no unusual (Thing to see a dozen cards a day and wo dozen an evening put away in somebody's safe or in the cash regis fer, each containing a combination on Sie electoral votes, and each bearing with it the conviction of the maker Sacked by his money. ' This kind of speculation assumes at times a positiveness that is quite start- Kng, if mot alarming. Some of our ard comibination makers ihave a ! pe culiar expression of the eyes which gives to them a sort of Tyndall ap pearance of far-away-ativeness. It would seem as though all the states re passing in review before them. the ballots are counted and the result marked down in plain, black figures the electoral college is in session, they are casting ballots, New Hampshire, Vermont. Massachusetts, Michigan, Connecticut, yes, Maine, and for Mc- Kinleyj- And New York, New Jersey, Arkansas,1 Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, two IDakotas, Kansas and and and tor IB-ryan, and, whopee! out -comes a card, down go the figures, up goes the joney. "Keep that card 6afe until Korember." And the gent with the inspiration of prophecy strong within im walks away satisfied with the world until the next day when a new combination forces itself upon his mind, and he again 'hypnotizes himself with similar contortive result. The diversion is a harmless one during this, warm weather, and per sons; mathematically inclined find a pleasant fascination1 in it. But one thing should be borne in mind in. pur suing tihese calculations. It is the difference in the conditions this year with the conditions of four yeara ago. They are such as to shake confidence in the truthfulness of figures. There ever was a time when the alignment of parties has been so badly roken,. and for this reason the specu lator in election results imust fall back mostly on guesswork, or a3 we have suggested, project himself, Tyndall like, .into the uncertainty of t'la fu ture. Just now the most astute and long experienced political prognosticator finds it difficult to give advice as to betting chances. He will not risk .his reputauon in prediction. Tbe news- papers are as much at sea, and in our judgment this condition of uncertainty vrill prevail until the result of the election is announced in November, and 9 confine our prediction to the simple statement that many surprises are in "store for us, to be revealed only at that time. Just now we make no combination, make no card, put up no money, and feel content to go on in our own way trying to do good for our people right here at home. GOOD ADVICE. Dr. Thomas O'Reilly, a prominent St, Louis .physician, writes to The GloberDemocrat that the preservation of health In hot weather is accomp lished toy the imost rigid abstemious ness and (by total abstinence from all intoxicating liquors. Fresh meat should be sparingly used and only once a day, and the other two meals should be of a light farinaceous char acter, either tea and toast, mush and milk or corn, starch. The gourmand will swear at this bill of fare, and say there is not enough in it to sustain the waste of animal life, but Dr. O'Reilly assures him tihat he is mistaken, as practically and physio logically there are good reasons why in hot weather this moderate diet is most suitable. In warm weather we lose our appe tites, Indicating that nature intended us to lessen the quantity of our food, and the billiary secretion, the most im portant in the process of digestion, is charged to such an extent as no longer to be able to prevent the development of ptomains the poisonous products of digestion which excite fever, stupor, thirst, colics and diarrhoea. The most suitable drink in hot weather is warm water, which, though not the most palatable, is the most agreeable for the stomach, and never excites those painful gastralgias which ice water does. These simple rules of health, if strictly carried out, rob the hottest days of their terrors. It is not so difficult to understand how stabbing, shooting and death en ter into politics when one listens to the arguments indulged in by some people. In Alabama, Wednesday, a man simply said, "Hurrah for John son," and he was shot down and his head was cut off. Then shooting be came general. Several were killed, several injured seriously. This oc curred where votes count. Right here in Phoenix we have listened to argu ments in which personalities bitter and mean were indulged from the start, and yet our community thus far in the campaign has been spared the horror of h-lood. Would it be differ ent if our votes counted? "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do." Thousands and tens of thousands of sermons have Ibeen preached for nearly 2,000 years with this text as a basis. It is always in force, always with us, al ways applicable. But looking about us a little at this time reading some of the things we must read, listening to the speeches outside of the range of which wa cannot get, taking into con sideration all the circumstances sur rounding us in this campaign, and with eye and mind fixed only on the people's good, we are ready to believe it more applicable right now than at any other time in the history of civ ilization. ' When a man offers $1,000,000 for the accomplishment of a certain end, no matter how almost impossible that end may seem, somehody will start in on an effort Millionaire Rouss of New York when he offered that sum to any person who could save his sight to him scarcely dared to dream that benefit could come to him from it. The specialists of the world had told him that no power on earth could pre vent his sight from going. A Chicago inventor has been experimenting, and is now confident that ha will soon be the coupon, clipper on that million. The Denver Republican sizes Wol cott up in this fashion: In the mean time we have no hesitation in saying that public sentiment regarding our junior senator in every county in Colorado would he most aptly ex pressed by Moore's lines, plagiarized and garbled iby a goldbug Democrat in one of his tetters on the tariff question: "Oh for a tongue to curse theslave, Whose treason like a deadly blight, Comes o'er the counsels of the brave.

Think of the welcome home tendered to White of California, the reception to Teller in Colorado, the ovations at their homes to hundreds of other members of con gress. Why does Murphy stay so long? Perhaps our Phoenix letter carriers have a good claim for extra allowance under the eight hour law. The car riers in all the large cities are getting back .pay under the decision, ranging from $5,000 to $100,000, either of which amounts, or any amount along the range, will serve to brighten up mat ters in our town for an hour or two. In two years Cuba has cost Spain 1200,000,000. There has been war all that time. This country is at peace with the world, the 'balance of. trade is fn our favor and yet we are $262,000,- 000 'behind what we should be at the end of the last two years. Is the financial system wrong? Meat biscuits and matches. Not a palatable dose by any means. Yet Armour of Chicago seems to have made a sandwich of them that bids fair to exercise, his. powers of deglu tion for some time to come. There is a great depth and signifi cance in the word faith. The true meaning would not confine in a large volume. At the same time we hesitate about sending our handkerchiefs . to Schrader or Schlatter. Treat gold and silver, alike at the mints of the United States and the parity .between them at the established legal ratio will always be maintained. That is the long and short of the par ity question. A hint to the- silver clubs of this territory. Buy quantities of the Pres cott Journal-Miner, the Tucson Citi zen, the Yuma Sentinel and the Phoe nix Herald, and distribute them in the doubtful states. Byiron Waters proclaims that San Francisco is the Sodom and Gomorra of the legal profession. When you want another subject, Byron, come to Phoenix, the auction house of the lawyer. The man who had $100,000 in gold in 1873 has had the benefit of the inter est ever since and his principal today will buy twice as much as it would then. His gold has doubled in value. Ingalls made a speech in Kansas Tuesday, and the report says that "for two hours he held 6,000 people spell bound to 'the broiling sun." Sun struck, petrified or paralyzed?

Our damaged goods sale which be gan Wednesday, August 5, is still on and the goods are still going. There is left yet a considerable quantity of excellent values, none of which are water damaged sufficient to injure any body but us. Of course we are the ones holding the sack, .but accidents will happen in the best regulated stores, so we make the most of it and shall be thankful to get rid of these goods so as to make room for new ones. Remember that we are only asking from one-fourth to one-half of the old prices and that our sole aim is to dispose of .this damaged stock. Buyers can just about have their own way while this sale lasts. Call and see if this is not all so. What the Czar Wanted. The first mot of the new czar was de livered upon the occasion of M. de Giers' official visit to the emperor, who received him with the greatest dem onstration of friendship, at the same time expressing the hope that notwith standing M. de Giers" reported wish to retire from office he would still con tinue to work with him for many years. "But, your majesty, it is scarcely pos sible; look at my feet, they will hardly carry me." The czar replied: "I am very sorry for you; but as far as I am concerned, I do not want your feet, I want your '-.-rl." NOTICE TO PAY PASTURAGE. To W. H.

BROS: ten frightful dreams are the result of imperfect digestion, which a few doses of Ayer's Sarsaparilla will effectually remedy. DonU delayy-try it today. Ayer's Ague Oure never falls to neu tralize the poisons of malaria and eradicate them from the system. This preparation is purely vegetable, con tains no harmful ingredients, and, if taken according, to directions, is war ranted to ure fever and ague. Try it "Mamma, was that a sugar-plum you just gave me?" asked little Mabel. "No, dear, it was one of Dr. Ayer's Pills." "Please, may I have another?" "Not now, dear; one of (those nice pills is all you need at present, because every dose Is effective.' Sufferers from sick headache, indi gestion, and biliousness may alwsys find speedy relief in the use of Ayer's Pills. There is no other medicine in pharmacy which goes so directly to the source of these maladies and brings about so thorough and radical a cure. They cleanse the stomach, liver and bowels, and, to a certain extent, puri-' fy the blood of waste products; at the same time they act as a health-giving tonic to all the tissues involved in the complex process of digestion. In this way, they effectually relieve headache, nausea, Indigestion, biliousness and waterbrash, and prevent diarrhoea or summer sickness. They are, there fore, indispensable in seasons when bowel complaints or malaria prevail, and should go with the tourist to the mountains or the seaside.

Manufacturers of other sarsapartllaa sought by every means to obtain a showing of their goods, but they were all turned away under the application of the rule forbidding the entry of patent medicines and nostrums. The decision of the World's Fair authori ties in favor of Ayer's Sarsaparilla was In effect as follows: "Ayer's Sarsapa rilla is not. a patent medicine. It does not .belong to the list of nostrums.
