NOVEMBER SS. 1896. As an advertiser of Arizona, White law Reid occupies the top shelf. Let's all take a hand and help bring about the rebuilding of Fort Whipple. Tn football, as in other things of interest to the great American public Phoenix occupies the front rank. When the delegates to the irrigation congress explore the Salt River valley very few 6f them will care to return home. We are glad that our recommenda tion in favor of a concerted movement in the interest of the rebuilding of Fort Whipple on an enlarged scale has met 'with hearty responses in this city and in Prescott. Any person who has lived in the vicinity of a large army post knows what an advantage it to the surrounding country. Fort Leavenworth is a good example. Many troops are quartered there and the ad joining city of Leavenworth is bene fited in various ways. The social life at the post is enjoyable, and the con tracts for supplies are not without their attractions. In the case of Fort Whipple, Arizona generally would ben efit by Its enlargement. The producers of' the Salt River valley especially would find their opportunities for profitable contracts increased. With thousand or more men stationed at the fort a large sum of money would be expended annually. Arizona would get the major portion of this. What if Prescott should receive the most good? Are we to be narrow and sel fish and work only for the town in which we happen to reside? The time is ripe for broad gauge work in Ari zona. Let the people or tne two sec tions work together to the end that Fort Whipple may be restored to its old time position of importance in the list of the country's military stations. Tammany has been holding a jubi- lee in recognition -of the fact that the organization, colled 135,000 votes for the Chicago ticket.. It was quite feat, but it was excelled by the orga nization for honest money, which beat Tammany in its own citadel. The Vermont legislators ought to have tried a new gag. The trick of passing a woman suffrage amendment through one branch by a practically unanimous vote and then defeating it overwhelmingly in the other branch is an old Yankee scheme. It looks as if the chief of police of Chicago had got a grudge against the newspapers in that city when he pro mulgates an official order for all liquor saloons to be closed there at midnight, except those within half block f newspaper offices. Tne local committee of the irnga tion congress is making very satisfac tory headway.. Its efforts are being seconded in a hearty manner by the Chamber of Commerce. With these two organizations working hand hand there can be no doubt of the suc cess of the congress. The more of Governor Franklin's report we read the more we are con vinced that he has missed his vocation. He ought to have stuck to the news paper Dusiness. Any man who can write such descriptive matter as that embodied in his report has the right of way in newspaperdom. WORK FOR WHIPPLE.

THE REVENUE DEFICIENCY. Apparently that is an excellent sug gestion of the engineer-in-chief of the navy as to the futility of building high powered warships without provid ing the necessary skilled officials to drive and maintain them. Perhaps if his suggestion is heeded the bills for repairs on our high-priced cruisers will not be quite so big or so numerous as they have been hitherto. The report comes from Washington that Secretary Carlisle has not yet de cided to admit that the deficiency of the revenue is responsible for the larger portion of the sales of bonds during the present administration. Well, what difference can it make whether he admits the point or ig nores it?l The fact is there, all the same, and it has become so plain that there is no possibility of disputing its existence. Speaking roundly, one may say that two-thirds of the money received through the bond sales has been used by the treasury in meeting the deficiencies of the revenue, and in redeeming the Pacific railway bonds as they fell due. If the revenues had been equal to the expenditures, a sale of bonds to the amount of $50,000,000 would probably have sufficed for all the exigencies con nected" with the gold reserve, and, as suredly, a sale of $100,000,000 bonds would have furnished a very ample provision for the maintenance of gold payments. The effective work of bond sales in the protection of the reserve is done through the contraction of the currency. With a balanced revenue this contraction operates in full force, but when the proceeds of the sales are paid out again for the expenditures of the government, the contractive power is diminished in proportion. As re gards the sales made by the present administration, two-thirds of the con traction has already been lost, and the remainder is steadily dwindling. From this point of view, an increase of rev enue is really and badly needed for the protection of the gold reserve. In the present year nearly $40,000,000 of the contractive effect of the last bond sale has been annulled through the use of the proceeds to meet current in debtedness.. This is a grave :condi- tion of affairs and in all' courtesy we suggest to Mr. Carlisle that it will be far safer to acknowledge it frankly than to shut his eyes to its danger. turning their eyes in this direction. They have heard of our rich possibili ties and are bound to investigate 'them'. Does any man imagine that a capital ist will walk blindly into a new field? Will not he examine the conditions governing past and prospective in vestments? Is there a promoter of en terprises in Arizona who can say that eastern holders of money do not look into the financial history of a terri tory in which they are invited to in vest? We say to the people of Yava pai that an attempt at repudiation by them of a debt entered into with open eyes will reflect upon the credit of the entire territory. Eastern people look upon Arizona as a whole. A single act of repudiation will do more to injure the chances of getting necessary money for development than any other agency. Capital will fight shy of a state or territory which has a lax sense of honor. Better far for the peo ple of Yavapai to acknowledge that in voting the bonds they i got (CANES F XMAS j PRESENTS the . big end of a bad bargain, and stand up to it, than to declare their unwillingness to pay. Since the election the word "repudiation" has become unpopular in this country. Arizona, of all the political divisions can least afford to adopt it. We direct attention to an article in another column written by Whitelaw Reid descriptive of Arizona as a winter resort. We do not recall a more sat isfactory description of this sun kissed land. Mr. Reid came here last year, remained five months and be came thoroughly acquainted with the nature of Arizona's resources and ad vantages. His views, made public at this time, when many wealthy people in the east are thinking of a suitable winter climate, cannot fail to increase the tide of travel in this direction. Ar izona is certain to be well advertised by those who, like Mr. Reid, have found health and enjoyment here. PERSONAL. GOLD and SILVER. COOK & BELL, JEWELERS. i t t THE PH(ENIX GROCERY CO.

According to the reasoning of these newspapers, it is perfectly proper to keep up the free silver agi tation, but improper to refer to the overwhelming popular majority re ceivea by, McKinley. So long as the Bryanites continue their efforts to re tard the wave of prosperity, so long shall we prod them in their tender spot. It's a poor game that two can't play at. is an- However much our sympathies may incline toward Cuba in her struggle for freedom, it is impossible not to ad mire the patriotism of the Spaniards in coming forward and subscribing to the latest war loan to the extent of $118,000,000. The Spanish treasury pracucany oanKrupt. uut or an nual expenditure of $150,000,000, $50,- 000,000 is absorbed by interest on the national debt. Nearly every other dol lar raised by taxation i.; spent on the hopeless struggle with a debt whose principal has grown a fifth in the last three years and has more than doubled in the last twenty. Spanish bonds have fallen from 79 a year ago to 56 now, while gold in Spain is at a pre mium of 120. Subscriptions to a Span ish loan under these circumstances look very much a gift. THE BOND QUESTION. There has been a good deal said of late concerning the Prescott & Ari zona Central railroad bonds. In some quarters the assertion has been made that the bonds should not be funded and paid unless the court of last resort shall leave no other course open. From our brief survey of the situation we are convinced that some of the people who are advising against the payment of the bonds are not well informed as to the merits of the controversy. It is a matter of record that the peo ple of Yavapai voted the bonds and paid the interest on them for several years. In the face of these facts it will be difficult to convince most peo ple that anything short of the payment of the principal and interest will be honest. Some who are opposing the payment of these bonds are among the most earnest advocates of railroad ex tension in Arizona. Do they expect repudiation and railroad building to go hand in hand? It seems to us that the time has come when we should hear less of repudiation and more of plans for the good of the territory. Arizona needs money to develop her magnificent resources. There are de sirable mining and irrigation projects in this territory which will amount to nothing so long as capital shall be withheld from them. The money upon which Arizona depends is held in the east. The men who possess it are now The personal estate of the late George du Maurier, the celebrated En glish artist and author, is ascertained to be 47,350. - General Baratieri, who was in com mand of the Italian troops at the bat tle of Adawa, when about 2,000 were taken prisoners by the Abyssinians, has broken one of his legs in the Ty rol. Bishop Spaulding of Peoria, 111., ar rived home on Wednesday from Eu rope. He said that rumors that he was to be appointed rector of the Cath olic University at Washington, to suc ceed Bishop Keane, were false. Jerome B. Uhl, the oldest actor in Chicago, died on Wednesday in that city. Twenty years ago Mr. Uhl re tired from the stage after a long ca reer, during which he appeared with such men as Booth and Forrest, He was the first Thespian to go. to Chicago and was a member of the McVicker company. Governor Holcomb of Nebraska re echoes the assurances given by the governor-elect of Washington that the victorious silverites will not ruin the business and credit of the state by the passage of laws by which the value of property would be endangered and the rights of people holding mortgages in fringed or violated. General Henry B. Carrington, on the retired list of the United States army. in a letter relating to the results of the presidential campaign, quotes the fol lowing as his exact language on June 9, 1862, in an appeal to the people of Ohio, published by him in the Cincin nati Commercial: "This is a war of the people, by the people and for the people, and it will triumph." The gen eral suggests that this sentiment was endorsed by high authority on another occasion; and the similarity is certain ly ramarkable between his language and the words with which Mr. Lin coln . closed his memorable speech at Gettysburg. Dr. Creighton, the new bishop of London, has a keen sense of humor. Some time ago when he was making a visitation of his diocese (Petersbor- ough) he was entertained in an old manor house and slept in a room sup posed to be haunted. Next morning at breakfast the bishop was asked whether he had seen the ghost. "Yes he replied, with great solemnity, "but I have laid the spirit; it will never trouble you again." On being further interrogated as to what he had done the bishop said: "The ghost instantly vanished when I asked for a subscrip tion toward the restoration of Peters- borough cathedral." A gossiper in the Washington Post tells this story of Amos J. Cummings, which he says was told to him by Amos himself. During the last cam paign Mr. Cummings tried to say as little about free silver as possible, though he was running for congress as a free silver man. Secure in the friendship of every policeman and let ter carrier in his district, he got on swimmingly till almost the very last speech he made. It was in a great hall, and he had a large audience. He talked about national honor, and the flag, and the equality of man, and the rights of the masses with a twist or two of the British lion's tail by way of variety. It was a great speech. Sud denly it was interrupted by a man down in the front row. "Tell us about the ratio!" he cried, and he pronounced the first syllable to rhyme with hash. Mr. Cummngs paused, perplexed. Just then his eye caught the eye of an es pecially frienly policeman. No words were exchanged, but an instant later the strong hand of the law descended on the collar of the enquiring man. He was yanked clear out of his seat and hustled to the door. 'Til have you understand," said the policeman, as he jerked him down the aisle, "that we'll have no such language used here!"
