This time could be well spent by the city and every resident in a general cleaning up. Phoenix is al ready a clean city, but there is always room for improvement, and this is a time when it is necessary to put the best foot forward. It will be years be fore another event of such vital im portance to Arizona will take place within her borders, and as the visit ors' impression of Phoenix will largely influence their opinion of the whole territory, by all means let that im pression be a good one. PHIENIX. DECEMBER 10. 1896. : The seven by eleven in its issue of Tuesday contains more original ed itorial matter than it has at any other tine in the remembrance of the old- est inhabitant. Thus it strives to be ome "a paper of general circulation." ; "I am not the party," says Senator Hill. "I have been a very small part of it for several months, I fear." That is true, and the remarkable fact is that nevertheless the party is now worse off than when he was a leader in its coun cils. This would hardly have been tlought possible a year or two ago. A SENSIBLE VIEW. In a recent speech at Hampton, Booker T. Washington, the noted Ala bama negro, said: "As a race, I be lieve we are to work out our salvation, work it out with pen and ink, work it out with saw and hammer, work it out with spade and plow, work it out with horse power and steam power, work it out on the farm, in the shop, school room, sewing room, the office. and in all of life's callings. As before the war the negro was bound to the white man by slavery, so now he must be bound to him by community of in terests. Here at Hampton we have not alone the sign of progress, but the reality. There is no position, however high, in science, or letters or politics that I would withhold from my race, but I would have the foundation sure." The Albuquerque Citizen, has this to say of a well known Arizona editor: lAllen T. Bird, of the Nogales, A. T., asis, is a candidate for -appointment aa collector of customs at that port of entry. Mr. Bird was at one time edi tor of the Sen Bernardino, Cal., Times Index, He is a stalwart Republican, an able and fearless writer, and has rendered the party services that are entitled to recognition." BUSINESS FIRST. :. One of the many cabinet rumors which fill the air says that if Repre sentative Hill of Illinois is not elected tb.the senate he will be invited to be came secretary of state, and, second, if te is elected to the senate, Senator Cullom will be offered the portfolio of "the interior. This has some intrinsic probability in that it would involve a suitable recognition of Illinois, whose magnificent . majority contributed in no small degree to the prestige of Mc Kinley's election. The "advance agent of prosperity" for William J. Bryan has arrived at Atlanta, Ga., and is a press agent up to., the Bryan standard. He kindly consents to be interviewed and in his interview says that Bryan's contract guarantees him $50,000 for the season and the guarantors have been offered a profit of $23,000 for their contract. If Mr. Bryan doesn't look out he will lie a capitalist himself pretty soon look ing for investments. Emigration to America has created such a scarcity of farm hands in Ger many that land owners are now im porting Chinese coolies in hordes for tola worn: in Silesia, East rrussia posen and Pomerania. The owners are so enthusiastic"' with the result that many Germans who have hitherto re fused to emigrate are being forced to io so through lack of work. . When the Chinese coo'.ie has extended his grasp a little the Chinese problem of Ger many will be the same as ours. asy to Take asy to Operate Are features peculiar to Hood's Pills.

There is no reas on for continuingUhe gamef politics in which it engaged to the exclusion of all other business during the ses sion whioh came to an inglorious end last summer; there is every reason for doing something this time for the country. And what the country wants is to have the government put upon a solvent basis and trade relieved of anxiety with regard to disturbing leg islation. If the members of congress, senators and representatives, will take counsel with the business interests of their constituents, they will find that the advantage of the Republican party is not held as closely at iheart as is the retrenchment of public expenses and the increase of the National revenue. Let the expiring congress give its at tention to these matters, clear the docket of the practical questions left over from the ante-election session. and set the government on its feet financially, and it will do its full duty. Nothing can be gained by the dog in the manger tactics that have already cost the government millions of dol lars. Republicans will not oppose any measure that is for the public good. The voters of the country have ren dered their verdict. Now let congress abide by it. immigration, will start next week on a lecture tour through the west. The subject of his lecture will be "The State of Maryland and Its Prospects for Industrious Settlers, Particularly Farmers." He hopes that as a result of his tour a large number of desirable families will decide to live in Mary land. A number of western people are already settled at Wilhelmina, in Caro line county, and they are doing well. Alonzo Robbins, Ph. D., of Philadel phia, whose death is announced, was regarded as one of the ablest pharma cists in Pennsylvania... He was the first member of the state pharmaceuti cal examining board appointed by Gov ernor Beaver in 1887. Governor Pat- tison in 1892 reappointed him to the same position, which he filled until the close of the April examinations in 189o, when, because of his greatly lm paired health, he resigned. He ren dered valuable assistance in the fram ing of the pharmaceutical laws of Pennsylvania. - The Washington Post tells this story of Colonel Wallace S. Jones, United States consul general at Rome, Italy, now on a visit to this country: Colo nel Jones is a Floridian, and has been in the consular service in Italy for the last ten years. He is a gentleman of wit, tact and culture, and his ability to make a happy response at the right time brought him into the good graces of Queen Margherita on his first ap pearance at court. The queen asked him from which state he hailed, and on being told, said that she had often heard Florida described as a very beau tiful country. , Yes, Your Majesty,' was the prompt reply; 'we call it at home the Italy of America.' The neat compliment was not lost on royalty, and the colonel was rewarded with a charming smile from one of the love liest women in Europe." The Philadelphia papers pay appreci ative tributes to Judge J. I. Clark Hare of Philadelphia, who has just retired from the bench on account of impaired health. He was born in October, 1817, his father being Dr. Robert Hare, a famous chemist, who was professor of chemistry at the University of Penn sylvania for many years, as well as an exhaustive writer on chemistry. "His treatises," says the Philadelphia Tele graph, "have covered many points of law. Those on 'Constitutional Law' and 'Contracts' are accepted as authori ties. It is more than probable that he will now issue many more works which will prove of great value to the profession. He is looked upon by his associates upon the bench and of the bar as being a man of profound learn ing, and many regrets have been ut tered that he had not been before this elevated to a court of final decision, where his learning could have been shown to more advantage."

A dispatch from Washington says there is no present likelihood that the treasury department will voluntarily resume the issue of gold certificates' for bullion gold deposited. Within the last week sterling exchange has gradually grown stronger, until now it has reached within a fraction of the gold exporting point. During Decem ber and January it is usual for im ports to be heavy, as a result of which gold has to be sent abroad in January and February to meet the payment of the goods thus imported. At present the gold reserve is $30,000,000 above the reserve limit, and the treasury rather discourages than otherwise the receipt of gold, as it reduces its supply of currency. In round figures it has on hand, net, $70,000,000 in currency available for its daily business. OBSERVATIONS. The Lea Angeles Times has the fol lowing tx sa7 regarding the visit of D. B. Robinson to this city: "D. B. Rob inson, to whose efforts the building of the Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix road is Iargsly due, is again in the ter ritory. Hirj visit is said to have sig oificanee in connection with the exten sion of the- road in question south ward. Next to an overland line across central Arixo-aa from east to west, this road would be the most needed and kefif. payiu3 railroad proposition in Arizona. The survey has been long ago made, aud the line found easy and practicable, the grades being light and the curves few. The extension in eludes PhoetiU. Tucson, Florence and southward to Calabasas, where it will connect with the Sonora branch of the Santa Fe system." MEN AND THINGS. Colonel Frederick D. Grant has-been visiting the old Grant homestead at East Windsor Hill, Conn. A portion of the house, which was once occupied by an ancestor of Colonel Grant, is nearly two centuries old. The Rev. Dr. A. D. Mayo will leave Boston this week for his seventeenth visit to the south in the interests of education. He has visited every south ern state, and has done much to pro mote education in the south. He is now engaged in writing a complete history of the educational movement in the south since the close of the Civil war. The health of, Count von Moltke Hvitfeldt, Danish minister in Paris, is greatly improved, according to the Fig aro, and his son, Count Adam von Moltke Hvitfeldt, who is engaged to Miss Bonaparte, of Baltimore, is re- When it comes to turning away wrath a soft answer is not in it with an in vitation to face the bartender. It may not be proper to precede the father of your best girl down the stairs but sometimes you have to. The leather sling a boy uses to throw stones, is not as dangerous as the gin sling in the hands of his daddy. When a man begins to tell a woman all his troubles, it's a safe bet at any odds that he's in love with her. Old bachelors may be responsible for the flirts, but the flirts get good and even by making more old bachelors. No matter how loose the engagement ring may be, the diamond never slips around on the inside of a girl's finger. A man isn t always happy when a girl returns his love especially when she returns it because she has no use for it. It is said that there is no accounting for tastes, but this, does not apply to that dark brown taste a man has in the morning. When a man undertakes to tell you what love is, the chances are he is in love himself, and you can't believe him under oath. The bible does not promise it, but there is no doubt but that the Lord will forgive all the lies a man tells when he is in love. If you want to see a strong organiza tion, look at the whiskey dealers; if you want to see a weak one look at the whiskey consumers. When a man nearly breaks his neck getting out of the way of a lightning bug, supposing it to be the headlight of a locomotive, it is time for him to sign the pledge. It is often a mystery how a cold has been "caught." The fact is, however, that when the blood, is poor and the system depressed, one becomes pe culiarly liable to diseases. When the appetite or the strength fails, Ayer's Sarsaparilla should be taken without delay. Ayer's Pills, being composed of the essential virtues of the best vegetable aperients, without any of the woody or fibrous material whatever, is the reason why they are so much more ef fective and valuable than any other cathartics.

NONE BUT AYER'S AT WORLD'S FAIR The Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex traordinary distinction of having ibeen the only blood purifier allowed an ex hibit at the World's Fair, Chicago. Manufacturers of other sarsaparillas 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. It is here on its merits." Do Yen Want FIRST-CLASS LUMBEE, DRY LUMBER, Lumber That Sbonld Be Used in tbe Construe! ion of a Good House? IFSO, " ' Patronize THE L. I. BLINN LUMBER CO!
