Senator Butler today issued a letter in part as follows: ., "Had St not ibeen for a prejudice against the Democratic name, as well as a want of confidence in- the Demo cratic press, for which it must be frankly admitted past experience fur nished ample ground, a majority of the voters of the country, despite the tre mendous and unparalleled - forces put forward by the Republican managers, would have cast their votes for finan cial reform and American indepen dence. The People's Party, with a high patriotism and unselfish devotion 'to principle greater than ever before exhibited by any other party, stepped outside Its organization to throw its 2,000,000 votes solidly for, Bryan. Had not more than this number, those who called themselves Democrats in 1892, given, itheir support to McKinley, -the cause of the people and of American principle would have triumphed this year." j EXTENSIVE IMPROVEMENTS.

The property is worth several thousand dol lars and when Mr. Bryan heard of his namesake's defeat he gracefully deeded the property to the winner. A RAILROAD SENSATION. Second Receivership of the Santa Fe Creates a Stir, An Associated Press dispatch from Topeka, Kan., says western railroad circles have a sensation in a second re ceivership for the Santa Fe. The road and equipment In Kansas was yester day af ternoon placed in the control of Commissioner Charles F. Johnson of Oskaloosa, Kan. Judge Louis H. Myers of the First district yesterday afternoon at Oska loosa made the appointment and or dered him to take charge of the prop erty of the Santa Fe Railroad com pany in Kansas. The property consists of nearly 500 miles of railroad, to gether with shops, depots, engine houses, office buildings, real estate and other property.. The action which resulted in the ap pointment of a receiver is brought un der the Kansas law of 1891, which pro vides thait no corporation more than 20 per cent of whose capital stock is owned by aliens, shall acquire real es tate in the state of Kansas, and that if any real estate shall be acquired in violation) of this statute it shall be forfeited to the state. The statute authorizes any county attorney to bring action in the name of the state for such forfeiture and au thorizes and directs the court to ap point a receiver upon presentation by the county attorney of a verified peti tion. The statute provides that such real estate shall 'be forfeited to- the state. The appointment of a receiver has been brought about, it is believed, by the men who opposed the recent reor ganization plan of the Santa Fe. When the reorganization was effected a meet ing was held in Topeka of the oppon ents of the reorganization plan, headed by Henry Ows and Newman Erb, and they made' a strong effort; to prevent it. However, the stockholders, of whom P. B. Cheney, Jr., of Boston, is a lead er, secured control of a sufficient num ber of votes to carry .their plan, and the road was reorganized in accordance with those plans. The anti-reorganization men' do not show their hands in the present litigation, but they are charged with toeing responsible for it by the friends of 'the new company and its officers and attorneys at Topeka. This action has created a great sensa tion in ithat city. WILL. KB IMPROVED. The Columbia Gold alining Company Is Active. J. M. Mills, a young assayer and chemist of Kansas City, is in Phoenix. Mr. Mills 4s the son of F. D. Mills of Kansas City, one of the principal stockholders of the Columbia Gold Mining company. The young man ia here to make an assay of the ore from itheir mine and to make a general in spection of the company's property. He will leave for the mine tomorrow in company with. Charles Thompson, the manager. The Columbia group of claims is situated in the Humbug district and gives promise of being one of the best producers in the territory. There are twelve claims in the group, but only ' development work to any extent has been done on the Tamplco and Yankee Blade, the two principal claims. A force of sixty men is now employed taking out ore on those two claims. From assays made the Tamplco ore averages from $100 to $140 per ton, but not less than the former figure. The ore from the Yankee Blade is fluctuating and runs from $18 tlo 200. Mr. Mills will test the nature of the ore for the purpose of determining the process to toe used in its treatment. It ds thought that it cannot be suc cessfully worked by the cyanide pro cess. It 'is the intention of the com pany to expensively develop the prop erty before building a mill, and if the ore bodies continue to show the results now obtained a complete plant will be erected. ' WILL BE OCMPLETED. Work to Be Resumed on the Agua Fria Reservoir. .The Republicans are redeeming the pledges made that if the country was placed on a sound money 'basis the wheels of progress would be set in motain. lAlttfctough but a few days ago the news was scattered broadcast over the world that William McKinley was elected president of the United States, already the dawn of a prosperous era has begun . One of the most important inter- prises ever started in the valley was the great Agua Fria reservoir and canal. Over a year ago 'the work on the enterprise was stopped for lack of capital. The 'promoters could not in terest eastern investors, the uncertain ty of how the election was going pre cluding the expenditure of eastern money in the west. Now comes the welcome intelligence that the Agua Fria reservoir and canal will be completed. Yesterday Captain Hancock received orders to proceed to the works of the company with an engineering corps and he will leave for his destination with a force of assistants., In a few weeks more ithe dam, now partially finished, will resume Its former appearance of ac tivity. WANTS FRAUDS UNCOVERED. Editor Republican, Sir: I am today reliably informed that at ithe late elec tion in this city most bare-faced frauds were perpetrated. 'Voters were fur nished with the necessary material consisting of a sheet of white paper and a piece of carbon paper and by these the purchaser was sure of the "delivery of the goods." At one ward ia this city over eighty such votes were bought and paid for. I am told Ithat the chairman of the territorial central Republican com mifctee has the evidence in his hands and the statement of a main who re ceived the money and committed the crime. The grand jury is now in ses sion and if Dr. iFord has not already done so, Mr. iMillay should see that he is called before it and tells what he knows about this thing. If our Aus'bralian ballot system can be thus openly violated with impunity it is time tine voters Knew u. Every year we hear of ballot box stuffing, fraud, etc., but it soon dies down and that is the end of it. Mr. Millay, you are about to leave the of fice of district attorney. Why not leave 'behind you a name by bringing to justice these men? REPUBLICAN. Phoenix, Nov. 7. MAJORITY FOR REPUBLICANS Next House of Representatives Safely Republican. Are Assured of a Good Working Ma jority In the Lower House by Chairman BabsocK Complexion of the Senate. - WASHINGTON, Nov. 7. At Re publican and Democratic congressional . headquarters the chairmen have been figuring on the complexion of the next--' house. Chairman. Babcock says he has complete reports from 193 congression al districts which have elected Republi- . cans'; that there are 135 distrid-s. that have -elected Democrats and Populists, and twenty-eight districts in which the returns are incomplete. These -may all be classed as doubtful, he says, with Ithe prospect that the Re publicans will secure at least one-half -of them, which would m&ks a total H&- . publican membership in -the Fifty-fifth . congress of 207. He claims that under bo circumstances will the Republican membership fall below 200. Senator Faulkner, chairman of the Democratic committee, although he does -not concede the Republicans a majority fa the next house, gives them 176, within three of a majority. His statiemealt makes the following division of forces: Total Republican, 176; total Democrat and silver, 168; doubtful, 12. In the Fifty-fourth congress, Republi cans had 244; Democrats and silver, 112. His figures show a silver and Damoerttic salver gain of fifty-six, not taking into consideration the doubtful vote. A. table has been issued showing ithe representation in the next house by states. The total number of repre sentatives will .be 357; Republicans, . 227; Democrats, 120; Populists, 8;. gold Democrats, 2. - , The results already received Indicate combined Republican and Democratic sound money men will have a majority in the senate after March 4, 1897. It is probable that a gain from silver to : gold senator, either Democratic or Re publican, will be made in each of Che following states: Illinois, Indiana, Ken- . tucky, New York, OMo, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The Republican vie- . tory includes probably the legislatures of several other states now -represented -in the senate by silver Democrats. In other states gold Democrats will be elected to succeed silver Democrats. iRETV. DR. HALSEIY'S CALL. His Acceptance Is a Blow to Oswego . Friends.. The First Baptist church of this city has Issued a call for Rev. Dr. Lewis Halsey of Oswego, New York. The Oswego Tiines 'has the following to say of the gentleman j "A surprised audience was that at the West Baptist, church last evening, when, at the conclusion of am un usually stirring and helpful isermon, Dr. Lewis Halsey presented .his resig nation as pastor of the churchy Very few were aware of the pastor's inten tion, flo that it came upon the people with all the greater shock, creating a universal expression of sympathy and grief. . ; .- 'The resignation stated in effect that the health of Mrs. Halsey demanded an immediate removal to a milder climate, physicians hers and at Clif ton Springs having declared that such ac tion was imperative; that having re ceived a call from Fhoer:'-, Ariroia where ithe climate was especiallv a ia.

Dr. Halsey expressed his deo re gret at breaking the pleasant ties he and hi3 family !had forrnvl in this city, and hie earnest wiWs for the prosperity of ithe church.

"The present pastorate ihas vriti four years, Dr. Halsey having come to una xB-ujr- on vovooer, and were it not for the condiition of mfo wti sey"s Sueaith, would certainly have con tinued much longer, so deeply lhas the pastor won his way into the hearts of the people. "If the resignation' is accepted and Dr. Halsey removes from our city, the church will lose a faithful, unsel fish and untiring pastor, an able preacher, a friend whose tender sym pathies were always starred by trouble of any kind, making his a friend in need, and so a friend indeed; and 'the city will lose a Christian minister of peculiarly broad and charitable mind, always ready in every good Trord and work.
