Thos G Alvord Jr C 5E-TE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN . Supt Art Library EIGHTH YEAR. PIKENIX, ARIZONA. MONDAY MORNING. JANUARY 31. 1SS8. VOL. VIII. NO. '213 A WAITING POLICY The Friends cf the Hawaiian Annexation Treaty ARE IN NO GREAT HORRY They Hope to Gain Necessary Strength by Delay At the Very Best they are Two Votes Short of a Ratification The Week Will Therefore LlkeTy bs Occu p'ed by Appropriation Bills. Washington, Jan. 30. The eena e proceedings far tine, -week will open with a speec-h by Senafar iPeJtigrew, deialing widh the Hawaiian question, which will be dMilivered on Monday. Beyond this speech it is very dllfficult to forecast the outlook tor the week, nhe diversion occasioned by taking up the Teller ibond resoliuiion has left the senate in a somewhat disorganizad and unsettled condition and with no prearraingertj priagramme. Senator Peitigrew's speech will be made during the morning hours and the probabilities are now that at its conclusion, or at least at 2 o'clock, one of the general appropriation bills will be called up. The arimy and legis lative -appropriation 'bills are already on the calendar and the consideraltion of the agricultural bill has been com-, pleted toy the commitfcefe so thai, it will be the first of these measures to re ceive consideration; though there is some dispoatitii to displace it with :;he legislative bill. Senator Allison, chairman; of the committee on appropriations, said to day that it. was his purpose to have the appropriation bills considered in advance of the other measures and if he adheres to this d'etfcirmiinat'oc, the week may be largely taken uj with them. So far as can be seen now .(here are few features in the ibills 'already reported calculated to arouse discus sion. There is a feefiing in certain quarters that ahe- army bill slhauld be simeadefl by a provision fart ,thie in crease of administration and if such a change should 'be attempted, it would give rise to a very spirited: debate. The census bill also will Ibe pressed for cttoEideration during the "Week. In- view of all the possibilities for debate and delay involved in these ar rangements it stems quite improbable thai the Hawaiian Ittreaty will receirve much attention, at least in executive session, during the week. Still, Sen ator Davis, chairman of tine commit tee on foreign relaliioDB, announces it to be his purpose to move an. execu tive session for the conBiderlatiom Of the treaty on .Monday, but it is pos sible thai he may be influenced by a pressure from senators who have other measures requiring immediate intention, to postpone this motion, for a few days. He does not, however. admit such, a probability. There is a growing impression, that the friends of the treaty feel that their best course is in delay, anldi this is the explana tion of lihe tactics so far Observed with reference to it. There is an. 'excellent, foundation for this surdnise. Tlhey hanre maile a very 'thorough canvass of the senate and have not .been able to discover where they can get more than fifty-eight votes, whereas to ratify nhe treaty tlhey will have to have sixty. They Ceel that" even some of -tlhose fifty eight are not entirely reliable. In view of these circumstances they realize that nothing is to be lost by an informal postponement, especially whenj it comes naturally through the pressure of other business, and some cf them believe that, everything is to be gained by thalt course. SEEKS TO DIE IN STYLE Norwegian Farm Hand Attempts Sui cide at the Palmer House (Chicago, Jan. 30. (Hans Fossum, a Norwegian farm hand, who .restered from ,S't Paul, engaged a room at the Palmer house last evening -and after locking the door aettmpted to commit suicide by turning on the gas. Guests who detected the odor of the escaping fumes notified the clerk, and the door to Fossum's .room was broken open. He-.was found sitting on the floor in a dazedi condition and taken to the Harrison street police station. Today an examination will be made as to his sanity. Fossum attracted much attention when he entered the hotel. He was roughly clad and carried an old fashioned carpet sack. He asked to be given one of the best rooms in the house and was assigned to the second floor. Half an hour later his 'attempt at suicide was discovered. When resuscitate I Fossum Itold the hatel employes he did not want to live. "What is the use in living," he said, "when I am constantly followed by a straige man who has often threatened my life and is only wag ing for a chance to kill me," Fossum became more rational at the police station and said he came from St, Paul Jour days ago and was on his way back to Norway.

WILL KILL IT QUICK No Earthly Hope for the Teller Silver Resolution A RBBUKE TO THE SENATE To be Given by the Promptness of the House' Action Every.-hinpr to be Sacrificed to Haste in Showing that the Vote Last Friday Nlaht Was by No Means the Sisnse: of Congress. Washington, Jan. 30. I: is 'the in teation of the house leaders to offset as far as possible the action of ubte senate in pissing the Teller resolution by killing that declaration of the sense of congress', regarding tlhe pay ment of .the government's cola bonds in silver, on an aye nd nay vote in the house this week. This will be the feature of the proceedings. While the. full republican strength in 'the htuse cannot be combined against the resolution, no- doubt is ex pressed by thoie who have made it their business to canvass the situa tion -Oh at the majority against i; will be decisive. As scon as the resolu tion is reported back from the ways and means committee, which may be tomorrow, the rules committee will bring in a special order for its con sideration. The time allowed for debate is likely to be brief, as the leaders do not helieve there is any necessity for a. protracted debate, and moreover, a long discission would measurably de crease the very purpose they have in view; namely, tiie prompt and1 de cisive negative reply to the senate's declaration. The remainder of the week will be devoted to the appropria tion bills. THE USUAL ENGLISH VIEW. London, Jan. 30. The Times, corn meating editorially this morning! upon "The disquieting- vote o'a Senai or Tel ler's resolution," says the disaster is accentuated by the fact thai at length Presidlenit McKinJey has "descended from tlhe fence on the right, side." Discussing the possible disruption of the republican party and the return of a silver majority at the next elec tion, the Times says: "Mr. Cleveland was a stronger man- than his suc cessor and foughit the battle bravely, but he saw his party broken into pieces." DISMISS AIL OF MRS. ROBERTS. It Will Be Considered by the Senate Civil Service Committee. Washington, Jan. 30. The senate committee on civil senvice and re trenchment will hold a meeting to morrow morning at 10 o'clock, when Mr. Allen's resolution providing that ! the secretary of the interior be called pn for all charges against (Mrs. M. A. Roberts, who was removed from the pension office last May, be sent to the seraaite, (will ibe considered. There is apt to be more disappoint ment in regard to this matter on the part of Mrs. (Roberts' Mends. When 'he resolution was referred to tlhe committee, Mr. Allen was given to understand on the floor of the senate that the case would ibe iruvestigated, and on that statement he consented to let the resolution be referred to the committee instead of having it adopted by the senate, as he at first insisted upon. Under tlhe resolution the committee is not given autlhority to carry ion any investigation of the Roberts case. At the meeting of the committee to morrow morning the matter will be fully considered and some course of action will be decided on.

Mr. Ivey says he expects to see the greatest; rush to the gold fields this- spring and summer tlhe world has ever sen. He does not believe the rush to California in the old days will be a circumstance. Mr. Ivey believes that the result of the rush will he the building up of Alaska into a great territory, and then a state. iPlacsr mining will be followed by quartz mining and the establishment of gold mills 'throughout the territory. Alaska, he says, is rich in athem minerals. These will be developed, 2nd mining towns will be established in ail sec tions of the state. COTTON MILL'S STRIKE. New Bedford, Mass., Jan. 30. The third week of the strike will begin to morrow, with a no nearer prospect cf settlement than was apparent three weeks ago. The union weavers will receive strike pay 'tomorrow. BIVALVES AND BIVALVES. Tremendous Ccn6ump.ton' of Oysters in Arizona's Metropolis. It will surprise the reader to know j th'it the tcethBome cyst-ex has a strong hold on the palate of the lover of Uieil Ssb in Pihtenix. The bulk cf the- re ceipts come from Berwick bay, on the Louisiana coast, and as many &s o.OCO have been delivered by Welis, Fargo & Co. in a day. Tha average since January first has been a daily delivery of 4,000. These are generally culled and are classed selec.s and mixed. The tempting cocktail, usualiy had ait salcois as an appeitizeir, is' the blue- point, a small oyster, but pleas ing to the taste. On the coast of Cal ifornia, Oregfcn and Washington there is a smaller oyster than the blue point and it is over there that the cocktail originated. Thet ing-.tdienlts that assist in this decoction are Wor cester sauce, tcmato catsup and a dash of pepper and. salt. It is told of a lady from the coast, who had betfeme: aceusitomed! to eating the little- fel lows in quantities' oif 100 at a sitting, that when phe. ordered a lunch to be sent to her in an eastern Lotel that she ordered a hundred cyBters, which nearly paralyzed the wail.ar. He brought the eastern, product and did not wait to see hlaw the lady disposed of them. After eating heartily the lady dumped the residue, fully three fouriuhs, down a convenient ash chute Speaking of the local supply, than ace some half dozen dealers who handle oysters', ie.i'.aurants and 'hctel keepers receiving theirs direct. One resjauiarit reports having dCshed up as high as 1,500 in one day. The pysters brought here are soid as low as 20 cents per dozen, raiw, at stores and cost perhaps 12 cents a dozen laid down. The Berwick bay oyster is 'taking ptrecedeince over the eastern glvalvet in Arizona, on account of the shorter haul. A MISSOLTRIAN OF NOTE. A Main Who Raises Cattle and Endows Collegesv Mr. D. Rankin of Tarkio, Mo., ar rived in the cS.y yes'twt'day morning. Mr. Rankin is one of the very wealthy men of nhe state and is, perhaps, the most extensive stock rafser and ship per in the state. His shipments from his own farms amount to about 10,000 head of cattle yearly. These go out during the. shipping season in three tlaialoads a week. The three years preceding last year, said Mr. Rankin, made up a trying period for the Misi souri farlmer as it was for tlhe farmer, ranchman and cattleman everywhere else in Uhe United States. Another face has been put on both farming and the cattle business, so that those who stayed with it are likely now to reap the reward of their faith thai: it would come out all right in the end. Mr. Rankin expected to make purchases of cattle on his weistern trip, but the prices1 are not saJtis'fiactory. By "sat isfactory'' is not necessarily meant "highi" They may be still higher af ter awhile and still be quite satis factory. A satisfactory price is one which a buyer can afford to pay, know ing that he can sell again at a sltill higher one. The future of the cattle business, that is1, the near future, cannot be absolutely foretold. That it will Ibe as ills is now, prosperous, is certain; but what heavy northern buy ers aire waiting for is some indication of tlhe exact extent of the prosperity. Beside being a wealthy man and a very busy business man, Mr. Rankin is the foremost p'hilan(.ttirK)p.:st of his part of the state. He wholly endowed and penhiaps continues now to assist in the support of Tarkio college, the chief educational institution in nonth western, Missouri. It siuioiuld be stated here that no part of 'this in Boirmation was received from Mr. Rankin. The writer happened to know about the college, its fciundina aad its maintenance. Mr. Rankin is accompanied by rela t'ive, W. A. Rankin and wife of Onaga, 111. They are stopping at the Hotel Adams. They have just come from the national s'tockgrowec's' con veation at Denver and will leave to' night to California. SECRETARY ALGER BETTER. Washington, Jan. 30.

ATELL TALE NECKTIE It Miy te tae Predecessor of a Hempen Tie j LIGHT THROWN ON A MURDER A Clue Ft und in the Hand of One of the Victims It Is Connected by a Boy's Story With a Gang Suspected by the Police to be Implicated In the Late Burlington Butchery. Burlington, la., Jan. 30. Six mem bers of wfaat is known as the Storms gang Te now under arreist, charged with complicity in the murder of Mrs. Rathijurn and her daughter. Blcod-stains were fcund on the cloth ing of Storms, Che lsad'er. A lad named Pedersoti today told the police that he called at the home of the Rathburns several weeks ago and1 found two men there. One of them, he said, asked' M:ry Rathburn to fix hist tie, and the boy afterward identi fied the tie faund on the body of Mary Rathburn sfe the one that had been called to his attentioa cn that night. The supposition is that the girl tore the tie from her assailant in the strug gle for her life. Young Peterson a'so picked out the nun Storms from a number of prisoners and declared he was the man who wore the tie on- the night he called at tihe Rathburn home. The police also say they have informa tion that threats were made by mem bers, of the Storms gang against the Rathburrts. A SABBATH DISCUSSION Regarding the Uffipa'id Balance of a iHorse Dtactior Bill. As people were returning from church yesterday morning macy of them were atttracted by a quarrel be tween two men on the east side of the court houEe plaza. One of the- men seated oa a -horse, was tall, blustering and ware huge goggleka. The other was standing on the sidewalk. He was smaller, had a red mustache and a quiet manner. 3e-ween taem was a deep ditch. They were engaged in the cKscussitorn of a financial question. One of them ove-ct the other a dollar for doctoring a horse. At last the man tan the horse cried: "You'd bet ter not get me to jump onto you. If I do, I'll climb all over you an' there won't be enough left of you to make a gun-wad." "T dort know whether you can or mot," replied, the cuher man; "I wouldn't mind gcin' roud in the al ley jist, to find out. You're bigger'n me, but that don't spell nothin'." "You're a liar," retorted the first; "I ain't no bfgger'n you." At this point the combatants re solved themee-lves into a committee on weights and measures. They dis cussed their comparative sizes for awhile in an apparently friendly man ner. But at last it furnished a new casus belli and the man in the big gog gles had recourse again so the uaa: o'f improper language. The discussion soon reverted to the original question, the unpaid horse doctor bill. The crowd seeing the hopelessness of a fight w.'bhdrew, so that how the affair M-rmina'ted is not krtown. But there was Elo) coror.ar's inquest in this pre cinct yesterday. PRIEST AND PULPIT. rnops.s of Sermons ia Phoenix Churches Yesterday. BAPTIST CHURCH At the Bap tist church on Sunday morning Rev. Dr. Halsey gave a sermon on pi-jyer "What Is It? Why Is It? How May We Prepare for It? How -May We Acceptably Offer It?" Prayer is the soul's community with God. It is coming to him by that new and living way cast up for the re deemed to walk in it. It is coming to God in the name of Him without whom no man cometh unto the Father. "Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, the Christian's native air, his watchword at the gates of death. He etoteirs heaven with prayer." Prayer is the outpouring f the heart of one who feels the need cf his heavenly Fa ther and knows where to findi Him. We need to pray in order to enjoy the presence of God. He draws nigh to those who draw nigh to Him. He takes no pleasure In the proud, but smiles upon the humble. To know Him is life, and to know Him we need to come near to Him to associate with Him. He is not far from every one of us, but 'He is especially near to the lowly arid contrite of heart who feel their need of Him and petition for His presence and henediction. The Master teaches us how to pray. It is by coming ia faith, believing, to Him who has all power and who is all love, commibbing our way unto Him, casting our care upon Him and pray- i: g that His- kingdom may come, and His will, not ours, be done. Some public prayers are sacrilegious, of fered -to the ear of mem rather than before 'the throne of God. Aa ac count of a religious gathering stated thai the prayer was "one of the most eloquent ever heard in Boston." Be fore we pray we should examine; our hearts to learn' our needs and to cast . out all unholy desires and aspirations, that our chief desire ntay be to ibe holy as He is holy. We may prepare to offer prayar by such self examina tion, by study of the prayers and pre cepts of the bible, and especially of the prayer taught by the (Master to His disciples. Jn order io pray aright we must 'have the spirit of the Master, the spirit of forgiveness. The pray ers 'cf the bible are all short. (Prays" should include ascription, piraise and petition. The pirayer of Daniel is a profitable one fop study. PIace and posture and phrases are nothing; the spirit of charity is everything. THE leoturp. at flood Tm n'ars' TiaH by Dr. A. L.

Unless something unforeseen hap pens, the most eventful thing hilled for this town today is the tri'al tf the said John Bender. It will oc cur in Justice Jahlns onie's court at 2 o'clock. Bender is charged, a3 most of the readers of The Republican know, with having trespassed upon he- counit'enacca of Michael McGinn and with having destilryed'. the f oliaga and uprooted the shrubbery growing the.reon. Bender saeims to 'ce uLteriy without taiy decensei, tor ni'auy (per sons witnessed the act cf vandia'csm and some of the shrubbery is now on exhilbition, having been made to am plify the coat of arms ctf the Palace saloon, a cherub couchanC But thai; was only the beginning of tb'e cutrage. Bender w'as drunk oa, that night and was dnuuk tSha next morning in jail. The first thJrt'g h? demanded aifter breakfast was a war rant few -the arrest of Mr. McGinn. Bt was issued and -Mr. tMcGitsn was brought into court, where he entered a plea of not guilty to. a oh'arwe cf assault, and indicat'-ed that he would set up in his pleadings today, self defense. All right thinkir.ig "people hope Ithe court, will see a way clear to discharging Mr. McGinn foithvvith, even before he gets into court. If one may not 'act in self defense wCrtm his whiskers are being pulled out. 'by rhe roots there is certainly mo occasion justifying .resistance to unlawful force. The phrases "self defense" and "driven to the wall" may as well be erased from the statute books and the violent and lawless ought to be given a free run. As for Bender, the court cannot deal too harshfly with that sacrilegious person. He should Ibe iriaiugh't once for all that he is not the tornado th rt he thinks he is; nor is he even a vio lent wind, nop yet a gentle zephyr, by toy twith o.her people's whiskers. .
