For there is only one thing that, a Populist demagogue would like "better than to be a millionaire, and that la to be a multi-millionaire. Samuel W. Allerton, the Chicago packer and cattle shipper, who aspires L(J UO A. 1 HI . .T wi , " " ' l.irgo farms in Nebraska, Iowa, Ohio, ' Indiana, Wyoming and Illinois. All of ' them together amount to 44,000 acres. Besides being an extensive farmer, Mr. Allerton knows all about the ins and outs of the grain and live stock mar kets. His friends are able to present .tiis qualifications' - for the office very effectively. He has the support of the Rational Live Stock Exchange, but the recent Farmers' Congress at In dianapolis failed to endorse his candi Mark Hanna has gone to Washington ta put the finishing touches upon the inauguration.'. It is perhaps needless to say that it will be the biggest thing of the kind ever, seen at the national 'capital. It is Mr. Hanna's way to do big things. His capture of the St. Louis convention for McKinley was the largest bit of politics ever seen in America, and it wail surpassed in big ness only by the tremendous triumph achieved by the two Ohio men at the subsequent election. Hanna will round the thing out now in the most fitting way. The inauguration will be worth going around the world to see The government has been selling its landa at the rate of 25,000,000 acres a year for the past thirteen years, and the general impression of late has Been that the supply has been just about exhausted, but Secretary Fran cis, in his annual report, states that there are enough left to keep up that rate of disposition for thirteen years. The secretary gives these- figures to emphasize the statement that "the public domain is being diminished by great strides," but it will be a surprise to moat people to learn that so much land outside of Alaska remains in the paraeasion of the government. ' THE MAYOR'S REPORT. The second quarterly report of May or Monihou on the (financial condition of the city, . which was published in yesterday's Republican; afforded inter esting reading to all who are students of .economical municipal administra tion.. Nothing has been wasted, not a dollar has been misspent. By de voting a large share of his own time to looking after' the needs of the city, the mayor has kept every one doing fcis duty and in that way has kept the pay roll within reasonable bounds. During this second quarter the drain age facilities have been greatly im proved, water for irrigation has been extended to the city cemetery," cross walks put in; ditches cleaned and va cant lots cleared of rubbish. All this h?s been accomplished at an expendi ture of $2,558.04 less than during the corT-jsponding period of 1895, when the city was practically allowed to run itself. Taxpayers, will be gratified to know that a yearly saving of nearly $7,000 over 1895 is estimated for May or Monilion's administration. This in spite of the fact that no one has fceen thrown out of employment in the interest of economy, or that anything of benefit to the public service has been curtailed. The services of City Engineer Da - vison is especially commended in the report. He has done a vast amount of valuable and accurate work for the city at a nominal charge. The condition of the city, both sani - tary and (financial, was never better. It evidently pays to conduct public af fairs on. business rather than on politi cal principles. Indeed the municipal government of Phoenix is in safe and competent hands. CHRISTMAS IS COMING. The Christmas holiday season is ap proaching. It is one great annual oc casion for the purchase of presents, the laying in of a store of good things to eat and drink, and the general replen ishment of domestic ornaments and furniture.. It is usually a harvest time for the storekeepers. This year will be no exception. Al ready the provision stores are display ing a wealth of tempting edibles, the groceries and fruit stores show a var iety of rich viands, the windows of the jewelers glitter with beautiful and use ful treasures, the dry goods institutions are replete with all kinds of charm ing apparel, every merchant is doing his best to show and to sell a lavish and variegated stock. The merchant's endeavor is to let the public know what he has for sale and the kind of prices he charges. No one means of doing this is so good, so cer tain, so productive of results as to ad vertise in the Daily Republican. Purchasers constantly consult and are appealed to by the columns of the one paper which circulates irfthis city more than any other one. The readers of the Daily Republican cannot fail to notice the advertisements, and every advertisement has Its effect. Sagacious business houses do not need to be convinced that advertising not only pays but is essential. The most successful firms are those that advertise most largely and most per sistently. The stores in this city present as full an assortment of goods at as low prices as can be found in any other city. In commending the perusal of our ad vertising columns to all readers, we would remind them of this fact. It is not fair for the residents of Phoenix to go to any outside place to buy what they can buy to as great ad vantage in their own city. Do your shopping at home. It is a loyal and patriotic duty, and keeps the circulat ing medium in the channels where it will do the most good. Merchants can make this Christmas a merry one by judicious advertising. THE NEW CABINET. The numerous journalistic cabinet makers have suggested an immense number of names which show how plentiful and how excellent is the ma terial from which the president-elect can choose his advisers. They also show that the process of selection must be very deliberate, slow and cautious. In their haste the cabinet makers sometimes reveal both bad judgment and bad taste. , McKinley is not likely to make those mistakes. He has the experience, sense and statesmanship which the cabinet makers lack. He knows fully the requirements of the places to be 'filled and the capacity of the available men to fill them. There is no doubt that around the council table of the White House will be gathered the wisest and most prac tical of Republican statesmen. It is too soon yet to say who they will be and what share will be alloted to this state or that. The adjustment will be such as the welfare of the nation de mands. There will be surprises, probably. McKinley is unhampered with -deals, promises or intrigues, and is a man of principle and independent mind. He will follow conscience and' look only to the merits and qualifications of his appointees. THE BONDS AGAIN. The following communication appear ed in the Prescott Jouinal-Miner of Thursday and is so timely and full of sound argument that we reproduce it in full: It is often stated that the members of Congress are not always honest. Be that as it may, there is one thing sure, they propose to make the count ies in Arizona and New Mexico pay up, having only yesterday legalized $172, 500 in bonds that Santa Fe county, New Mexico, was trying to repudiate. It looks very much aa though the would-be friends of the taxpayers of Yavapai county are likely to saddle increased expenses upon the county. If any additional expense, occasioned by the effort to dodge a responsibility was to be borne by those who are in dustriously engaged in the philan thropic work, and the citizens who are opposed to repudiation were not corn- i pelled to share in the disgrace that is ! bound to come to any community that ; tries, upon technical grounds, to sneak ! out of paying a debt, there would be no particular objection offered to the j activity that is being displayed on the : part of the would-be repudiators. Of course, the attorneys have no idea of making anything out of the possible litigation. It would look as though certain peo ple in Yavapai county were actively at work trying to put the credit of the Constipation Causes fully half the sickness in the world. It retains the digested food too long in the bowels and produces biliousness, torpid liver, indi- IHIoodR gestion, bad taste, coated Pills tongue, sick headache, in somnia, etc. Hood's Pills cure constipation and all its results, easily and thoroughly. 25c.

With a Populist mayor, as suggested by the Courier, on top of the Bryan ized condition of the county, old Yava pai will have a good start on the down grade. The Phoenix Gazette, an enthusias tic supporter of Bryan and free silver, pats the repudiators of Yavapai county on the back, but fails to recommend a similar policy for Maricopa county. It is possible that the Gazette has an idea that Maricopa county would in some way profit by Yavapai's misfor tune. It is safe to say that seventy-five per cent of the names that appeared on the petition protesting against the ac tion of the supervisors that favored the payment of these bonds, have nev er appeared on the assessment roll of this' county, while a large percentage of the had previously petitioned congress, through the legislature, asking for congressional legislation that would make repudiation Impossible. Politics sometimes have a great ef fect on communities, especially so when highly tinctured with the ideas set out in the recent popocratic Chi cago platform. Out of deference to the Republican member of the board of super visors, or rather the large constit uency represented! by him, it would be proper for the board to make its appointments from Republican ranks. The offices of assessor and clerk both require careful and expe rienced men, and politics should not interfere to prevent good selections be ing made. Frank T. Pomeroy, the present deputy in the assessor's office, is being urged by many as a candidate for assessor. He is especially quali fied for the office, having by his care fulness during the past few months, saved the county several hundred dol lars that otherwise would have been omitted from the tax roll. This is purely a matter of dollars and cents and as the board will be non-partisan there is no reason why the interests of taxpayers should not be considered first of all. OBSERVATIONS. Money talks but it doesn't always speak when spoken to. You can easily fill the public eye if you have sufficient dust. The farther a man gets away from a dollar, the bigger it looks. The landlord has an easier job rais ing the rent than the tenant has. Hush-money usually talks for both parties interested in the transaction. Riches have wings, and greenbacks might as well be printed on flypaper. The title often sells a book and it always catches the American heiress. The only thing a man wants after he gets all the money he needs, is more. For a month before marriage and a month after death, a man regards his wife as an angel. A man may not have a single reason for refusing to Join a club but he may have a married one. Man's trouble with a woman began in an ancient garden and now he wonders where it will end. Any man can make at least one woman happy for life. All he has to do is to remain a bachelor. When you see a man with his ears stuffed with cotton, he either has the earache or a scolding wife. PERSONAL AND GENERAL. According to L. C. Bateman, the Populist leader of Maine, Thomas E. Watson says he is out of politics and is disgusted with the present Populist leaders. !

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.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex traordinary distinction of having been 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 r "Ayer's Sarsapa rilla is not'a patent medicine. It does not belong to the list of nostrums. It is here on its merits." Nine reasons why Ayer's Sarsaparil la should be taken in preference to any other blood purifier: 1st. The drugs from which it is made are the most carefully selected. 2d. They are combined in such scientific propor tions that they may always be depend ed upon for successful results.- 3d. It is a concentrated extract, only small doses being required. 4th. It is perfect ly safe, either for young or old. 5th. It acts upon the blood more speedily than any other blood purifier. 6th. It cures disease by removing the conditions which make sickness possible, and therefore cures permanently. 7th. This remedy has a well-known scientific value and its formula is familiar to scientific men. 8th. It has been before the public for half a century. Drug gists and physicians recommend it and employ it in their practice. 9th. It was the only Sarsaparilla admitted at the world's fair. It stands first. It leads all other blood purifiers. ,Be sure your druggist sells you Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It cures others, and will cure you. WISH, AND FIRST AVENUE. Phoenix, Ariz.
