some of our would-be competitors that the $50 CLEVELAND3 we have
sold so many of this year, the models 61 and 02, are net this year's models.
This is practically an ailmission on th eir part that they do not think it pos

as $50. Our great number of sales proves it is T-cssibls. While ci'hers are

'It wiLM (be observed by those who
have familiarized themselves with
the names of the person engaged in ttLO
late struggle that the foregoing suc
cessful ticket is some'ahat impreg
nated wnth .'democratic matter.
It is ea strongly tinged with de
mocracy that many pessimistic
persons were inclined to look upon the
situation: datt night as a republican
efeat and many incogitant democrats
-ere unreasonably jubilant. Thy

On the face of affairs the election of
yesterday ras almost an exact reversal

ties of the successful candidates are
about the same as The majorities f
the republican candidates for the same
offices two years ago. The republicans
Iiave retained one cf the councilmen
which, they e'leeted then and have lout
t;he city treasurer.
Almost , the same number cf votev
was cast as in 1837. Nobody believes
that there has been a change in th."
political complexion of Phoenix to the
extent of twice the average domoeraiif
majority of yesterday or twice that of
the average republican, majority of two

among certain classes and in -curtail
quarters that his overthrow would be
compassed. "So the only surprise
which has befallen the most careful re
publican students of the situation is
tne defsat of Christy for treasurer
The bases upon which the foregoing
republican pr.edi"iiHis were made wore
only the less important causes lead
ing to ex-i-tain effect. The unfor
tunate selection of the bead
of the ticket, it was predicted,
ivould be ths prime cause of d.s-aster.
The result shows that the prediction
was accurate. Th& republican candi
date, J. D. Monihon, was so weak '.hat
in spite cf the fact that his opponent,
Mr. Ganz, without any personal effort
in his own behalf, with oat the support
cf -his own party newspapers, and
without; the apparent active effort of
his own central committee,- was elected
by a majority almost as great as that
by which the repablicin candidate, -was
elected two years ago.
Such a head cf a ticket could not hut
be disastrous to the rest cf it. With a
strong candidate for mayor Prescott
would have easily received the
eleven votes needed by him, Christy
would! almost certainly have been
elected and! it is probable enough en
thusiasm would have 'been thrown into
the fight to save Lauver in the Third
The reg'itfolican defection with re
spect to the head of the ticket was
reaUy much greater than the figures
show. He received scores of demo
cratic votes. .He was almost openly
supported by many prominent demo
crats. Taking all these facts into consid
eration, the election 'does not indicate
that Phoenix is less republican than
it was two years ago, but it does show
that the time has passed, as it I
passes some time in the growth of j
every city, when a small convention i
of the dominjyit 'party can enlist the I
party's endorsement cf a bad choice.
There was net a great d;al of inter- !
est taken in the election, thougn a
larger percentage than usual of the
registered vote was cast. This ias .ex
pected; because the manner cf the reg
istration brought out a more respon
sible list of voters.
A large' part of the vote was cast
early, and practically al1 cf it a half
hour before the closing of the polls.
The socialist labor party polled about
seventy-five votes, about half the esti
mate made by the Uaders of the
party. The result of the election by

DATES IN ARIZONA
Concerninq an Important Experiment
W About to Be Beeun.
The United States government
which fciled to establish t.ie use of
camels in the arid regions of this ter
ritory, has launched another under
taking, which if successful, will give to
some of th a barren alkali districts of
Auzcna tlie appearance of an Arabian
desert. Frof. J. W. Tourney, lorm
erly an active member of th.3 faculty
cf tho Arizona university, returned, a
few days ago ficm a trip to Washingr
ton where ho 'was rectntly appointed
by the department of agriculture to
conduct an experimentl in. date cul
ture. Ke is still nominally cor. nested
with the exopeitmental station which
will aid in the management al the ex
periment. A tract of ten acres has practically
been d folded upon, near Peterson's
Siding, south of Te.mpe. The soil in
that section, it is thought, is peculiar
ly adapted to the raising of dates. It
contains alkali, which is almost in
dispensable to th success of date
culture, and v.ater rises to .within
three feet of the surface. Th3 plants
vi'.ll be irrigated for probably two
years when it is thought that they
will extend their roots down to th.3
moist soil, and be independent of ir
rigation. Date palms which have b?ea culti
vated in the valley hitherto hiva been
Very thii'fiy, but the fruit is of an
inferior quality. This is explained by
the fact that the plants ar? seedlings,
and it is just as reasonable to plant
the seeds of a date palm as it is to ex
pect good fruit ironi an apple
tree which has sprung from tas seed.

J thi't line when he siys ihiit he is
firm in the belUf that the scheme will

COUNTERFEIT STA'M.P CASE.
accent Holders of
Treated Fairry By G:
Washington, May 2. Commissioner
Wilson of the internal revenv.3 bti
rein h.ns issued the following (i-cnljf
to cigar and tobacco dsalers lclativ?
to counterfeit stamps:
"Referring to seizures of tgarJ
from Jacobs & Co., factory No. 374z,
and Keodig's factory, No. 159, ninth
district of Pennsylvania, you aie in
formed that as 50's are thD uv.ly de
nominations known to have be.a
counterfeited, you may release the
cigars cova:ed by stamps of othnr
denominations, which are regular,
and in the hands of innocent holders.
The cigars can be left in thi cusi.otly
of the patties from whom seized, if
they are responsible, pending furtlirr
action. Seizures should 0.3 -reporte.l
on form 117.
''Innocent holders who have pur
chased cigars and paid for f.imo will
be treated fairly and reasonable offers
in compromise accepted. Such offers
should include payment or .costs, the
tax on the cigars and a nominal sum
as speciHe penalty -to f m&iio
through you to this office.
"When stamps are (indoabtcdiy
genuine,, the cigars may be released
without delay. The distin.-jion be
tween genuine and counterfoil, stamps
"The paper in the co;:nt3rf;it
much lighter than that in the gen
uine, and the" fa':e of Clay in tin;
counterfeit is very much drawn; th.
lock of hair on the r.ght '.!. of hi
head is very dark in the counterfeit;
in the genuine, much lighter.
"Among the most prominent dis
tinctions are the diamonds and stars
in J'.e word 'Cigars.' In the tenmiio
they are very distinct, while ii un
counter'feit they are greatly blurred,
and in. some letters the diamonds do
not appear at all. The siu.ding at tU:
left of tho stamps is much heavier in
the counterfeit than in the srenuim!
stamp, due, probably to the lighter
color cf tho paptr.
"In case of doube, hold tha cigars
until they can be examined by an ex
pert. "Ton can compare the stamps vrliL
any genuine 50"s on boxs3 cf cigars.
"Parties owing Jacobs & Co. andvV.
L. Kendig for cigars purchased should
te advised not to pay such bills or
accounts, and you will take prompt
steps to attach and hold moneys due
on account of adfuteda -sr. to the gov
ernment for tax-:; evaded. Consult
the district attorney. Hold the fraud
ulent cigars in sueh cases until thi
matter ia decided."
