THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN.
SEVENTH YEAR. PIKENIX, ARIZONA, TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 2i, 1896. VOL. VII. NO. 107. Tl 1 TlTinn The Candidates on the Stage. Bryan in Oratory, McKinley Mute and Pleading. Tim Murphythe Inimitable Pereon ator Represents the Two Great Men. The New York Journal says: At a certain point in the programme of .tihe Standard theater a smile ripples ithrougQn (the audience, Tim 'Murphy is on 'the stage, impersonating -well-known characters, and the smile is caused by the announcement of a pla card that ills next imitation will rep resent first Bryan and ithen McKinley in bursts of eloquence. . After several moments the curtain is drawn aside and the audience beholds William Jennings Bryan, al la Tim Murphy, gazing earnestly into the faces 'before ihbn. The likeness is rather good, except itlhat it credits the candidate iwitih more hair than he pos sesses 'makes tern look blacker and gives ihiim the general appearance of an Italian bandit. Suddenly lie bursts Into oratory and recites, with forceful delivery, the closing paragraph of Mr. Bryan's fa mous Chicago speech, ending with a reference to the "crown of thorns and the cross of gold.'Then the cur tain fails and the audience applauds, for the imitation was exceedingly clever. Hn a twinkling the curtain rises again, and, lo! McKinley stands before 4he audience. The transformation was as simple as It was rapid. Murphy has placed a Napoleonic chapeau on 'his hood, but toned his frock coat and drawn down the corners of his mouijh. The audi ence toughed. He stood with folded arms and ibowed (head in the famous attitude of the Little Emperor of thclg amtfySr dash for the battleship, Bellerophon. He raised M3 and opened his mou-h c.s if ha VrVire about to speak. (Them he paused, looked thoughtful for a moment acd scratched his chin. He looked toward the wings end gazed apFf'SJingly a; some imagi nary person who was standing there. "Whatever he saw dn 'that imaginary person's face must have Ibeen dis couraging, for, pointing to the audi ence, he turned to the wings aigain, and toy wonderful pantomime, asked: "Please let me speak! Why, can't I say something?', But the imaginary person was ob durate, and with a pitif ul shrug of his shoulders, Major McKinley turned and faced the audience. He looked at them long - and sorrowfully, like an unhappy animal that yearned to talk, but could nto. Then, with & sigh of restgnaffton, he folded his arms, bowed his head and fell into the attitude of Napoleon on the Bellerophon again. Then the curtain fell and the audience howled wfth laughter.

Believing she would he knocked down by the animal, she ran back to her house. When she reached her door she ran up the stairs, followed by the frightened cow, which was fol lowed toy the children. Mrs. Baker got inside her door just as the cow reached the top of the stairs. Her husband ieairned of her predicament, and, coming to her assistance, got the animal down stairs.

Within the past few days the feeling has be come very strong here that no null's will remain closed much longer. Pninting cloth has advanced one-quarter of a cent per yard from its lowest podnt. (While ithis increase has not been1 in keeping with the sharp rise in cotton, nevertheless mill men feel that it will not go back again for some time at least Just at this moment the mills are In what is termed the "mid-jobbnig" season, and if there is any strong de mand to reduce stock within the next four weeks it is morally certain the- mills will run along during the winter. regardless of any 'hopes manuf acturers may have as to Khe outcome of the elections. . This much has been settled beyond dispute there will be no further unit ed curtailment this year !by New Eng land mills under the guidance of mem bers of the Arkwright club.

Similar reports aibout north eastern Connecticut mlils are also heard. Secretary Howard of the Mule Spin ners' union says of the outlook for trade: "I do not expect to see busi ness improve before October perma nently.
