THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN
TWELFTH YEAB. PHOENIX, ARIZONA, FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOIJER 4, 1901. VOL. XII. NO. 139. ,1 OF THE SEA Columbia Took the Sec ond Race PLENTY OF DAYLIGHT Between the Racers When the Colum bia Crossed the Finish Line It Was Just Such Weather, Too. As Sir Thomas and His Crew Had Been Importuning Neptune and Aeolusfor- New York. Oct. 3. In a glorious wholesale breeze which heeled the big cup contestants down until their lee rails were awash in the foaming seas. Herrshoff's white wonder. Columbia, beat Watson's Rritish creation. Sham rock II. over the triangular course of thirty miles by two minutes and fifty two seconds, actual time. WUh forty- ;hree seconds which the Irish sloop al lows the American boat on account of a larger sail plan, the Columbia won the Eccond race of the series by three minutes and thirty-five seconds. The fastest race ever sailed in a cup contest, was not only a royal struggle from a spectacular point of view, but was absolute'y decisive as to the me: its of the two racing machines. There was not a yachting sharp who wit nessed the race today who was not convinced that the defender Is the abler boat, blow high or blow low. beating, reaching or running, and that Sir Thomas and his merry British tar3 are doomed to leturn home empty- , handed. The wind tcJay was strong and true. blowing around eighteen knots from the northwest. At every point in the sailing except, perhaps, in running be fore the wind, in which the defender has already taken the measure of the challenger, the Yankee sloop provei herself abler than the Watson model. For the first fifteen mKes the .hu man eye could not tell which boat, if either, was gaining. Then the Colum bia began to crawl up.. Inch by inch she cut down the Shamrock's lead. Both -were going at a territtic pace. Be tween the first and second marks the Columbia pulled slowly up and passed her rival, taking the lead and coming ham: winner by a good margin of a quarter of a mile. Sir Thomas Upton was out ear'y thi3 morning and rubbed his hanis to gether with glee when he saw the con ditions. Straight out of the north west the wind was whistling twenty four knots an hour, and the whitecaps tipped the ocean's blue. "This is what we want." said he. "If it holds we will have a good race. The Shamrock should do well today." The wind held, and the Shamrock did well, but the Columbia won. Start: Shamrock 11:00:7: Columbia 11:01:4": Shamrock 'to the windward. The Shamrock held the lead to the first mark, rounding it 11:51:06, a mln-. ute and eleven seconds ahead. At 1:03 the Shamrock was footing fast, but the Columbia pointed higher and began lo decrease the challenger's leaJ. Around the first turn the Shamrock led by over a quarter of a mile and the hear ts of patriots were as water. But like the immortal Paul Jones, the j Columbia had "Just begun." Inch by i inch she cut down the challenger's lead and1 at 1:17 the boats were on even terms. At 1:28 the Columbia was well in the lead and with every sail draw-: Ing. amid the shrieking of sirens and the- dipping- of flags she maintained the lead to the end and crossed the finish a quarter of a mile ahead. The committe has decided to race again tomorrow. GOOD PROSPECT TODAY. Washington- Oct. 2. Th. wcathdr bureau, issued the following forecast of weather for tomorrow's race: "Pres ent conditions indicate a pievalance of a ten to twelve knot breeze off Sandy Hook on Friday." LONDON DISAPPOINTED. London, Oct. 3. The extent cf Great Britain's disappointment at the de feat today of the Shamrock can be thoroughly appreciated only by those who saw the thousands of spectators lining the Embankment. Almost to a man they were expectant of victory. The early editions of the afternoon pa pers announcing that it was Sham Tock's weather, had keyed up their hopes almost to the pitch of certainty and many peop'e entertained an idea that the depression over South African affairs might be relieved by the vic tory of the Shamrock. The latter's lead in the ea:ly part of the race o strengthenej the impres sion that London threatened a repiti tion of Marking night. The crowds greeted the green lig.its on the towers and the launches which paraded the Thames with wild delight. But the Columbia's red slowly crept up and motor cars with megaphones -dashed up and down the Embankment pro claiming the Columbia's lead. The yachts in the Thames reversed their position, their lights and those on the signal towers changed. The crowds stood awaiting th final message. "Columbia wins," was shouted through the hotel corridors and the throngs dispersed. PHILADELPHIA FIREMEN. Philadelphia. Pa., Oct. 3. The con vention of the Pennsylvania State Firemen's association culminated' 'to day in the largest parade of firemen ever seen in this city, or perhaps any other city. Hundreds jot uniformed ccmpanios, not only from this state. but from New York, , Massachusetts. Ielaware. Virginia, New Jersey and Maryland, appeared in line with bands and apparatus. Out of lespect to the memory of President McKinley all flags, banners and apparatus were draped In mourning. TORONTO DAY. liuffalo. N. Y., Oct. 3.

Following the Mount Dallas affair, a week ago. in which William Fry, outlaw, was killed by a passenger, an atjtempt was made last night to hold up a Baltimore & Ohio freight train at Garrett, cn the Pittsburg di vision, thirty milc-s above here, by a gang of negroes.

Denver, Colo., Oct. 3. The home stead law, after having accomplished a magnificent work in bringing about the settlement of the western jtites. has outlived its usefulness lit Its pres ent form. The public land area to which the homestead law applied in spirit as well as letter was practically exhausted several years ago. In a fu tile attempt to render less onerous the provision requiring five years' resi dence upon a homestead claim before title passed from the government, con gress nuinfied the original intention of the law by making it subservient to the purposes cf land grabbers and specu lators. This war. done by the so-called commutation provision which al fir.'t allowed a homesteader to obtain title to his claim after six months' residence and by the payment of $1.23 or S'i.'.O per acre, as the case might be. Letter on this commutation privilege was changed so as to require at least thir teen months' residence before the land could be bought from the government. But even this still allows the home stead right to bo used in a manner not contemplated by the law or in the Ju terest of good government. The law as it now stands gives the settler two options. He can settle upon enter and acquire title to. 160 acres of land practically free of cost by estab lishing and maintaining residence thereon and improving and cultivating the land for a continuous period of five years. He may. on the other hand, at the 'end of fourteen months of sucn contlmto'us 'residence. Improvement and cultivation, secure a patent from th government by paying $1.23 per., acre tor his land if It lies without the limits of railroad grants or ?2.n0 per acre within such Wmlta. In either case act ual residence. Improvement and culti vation me theoretically required. He must, according to th? law. make ap plication for this land In "honesty and (?rod faith," not as an agent for others, but in the honest intention to make n home, and all agreements to sell prit to the lr.sulng of the patent are forbid den. In paying for this land he can u.e cash, military bounty land warrants, agricultural college scrip or private land scrip. It is a well known fact that without an exception the home stead law Is used todcy entirely In tha arid region, where hone.i and contin uous residence and cultivation from the beginning Is a practical Impossibil ity. One exception may be made tr this sweeping generalisation, and that is where a homestead is filed in th arid region under Fame canal of other water woiks constructed for the pur pose of furnishing Irrigation water to incoming settles. There ore few cases of this kind, however, for the reason that before such canals are built th.; companies lake good care to secure title to all Irrigable lands, as such land U worth far more with a water right than the price charged by the govern ment. The commissioner of the land office. In his annual report, which will be published this month, will call atten tion In a spirit of congratulation to the enormous number of homestead filings recorded in the fiscal year end ing June 30, 1901. He will show that during that year there were 68.G4S orie-inal homestead entries covering the enactment of the bormstead law in 1S32. The commissioner will als i show that about 3,000 .homesteads, cov ering about 4fiO,00 acres of land, were commuted during the past year. The government received for these com muted homesteads over $rC0.0C0 in cash, which, viewed from a narrow business standpoint, might be said to be satis factory: but when considered in the light of the real Intentions of the gov ernment, the purpose of the law, the morality of the communities in whlcu these homesteads are secured, and the welfare of the state? and territories in which they ate established. It is a most undesirable showing. During the year 1S01 the original homestead entries, final proofs and coVmuted homesteaJs amounted to 111.30 entries, covering 13.435,057 acres, or more land than hs been segiegated from the public do main In any one year since the founda tion of this government. ' Those who ore familiar with th. present conditionof the public, dorr.ail and Its practical restriction to the arid region may well inquire whence comes this boom in homestead location upon land which is practically uninhabitable without the expenditure of an nvcrage of $10 per acre for securing the neces- 1 sary water. What is more. U Is also known that thousands of these tilings are made upon lands where Irrigation Is an impossibility at the present stage of the country's development. Since the passage of the homestead act In 1S62 there have been about 1.-34-",000 original homestead filings, cov ering about 18O.CGO.OC0 acres. During this same period the government has issued C37.0C0 patents to homestead claims, coverinir about 86.000.000 acre-. j It is evident, therefore, that about aO per cent or tnose wno make original homestead filings carry the process through to completion and receive title to thetand. The truth of the matter Is that thla remarkable Increase in the number of homestead filings means that fraud Is becoming more common and apparent ly easier to accomplish. The men who control the big cattle and sheep ranges realise more keenly each year the en croachments of the settlers upon their some shadow of title to land controll ing the water and valley meadows. The pre-emption, timber culture and prU vate sale of lands by the governmerl. having been done away with, there are but two or three ways lr which mo nopoly can be upheld, and It may be said in all conservatism that the home stead law. with Its commutation clause. Is now doing more real damage to the prospects of the western states than it Is good. ' There Is crying need for national legislation upon the subject. The com mutation of the homestead act should lx promptly repealed; an amended homestead law should be enacted which would apply to the arid region and enable a settler to secure title to his land without committing perjury. The Idea of homestead law would be one which did not waive In any par ticular the original requirements of five years' residence and cultivation. Such a law would apply to all classes of land. This law should also carry the provision, however, that a home steader In the arid region should have at least three years' time In which to first establish his residence upon the land before he began to serve the five year term necessary to secure titl-?. During the preliminary three years, however, he should be required to give proof each year" that he was making substantial progress in the work of re claiming his land from the desert !y means of irrigating ditches. In. brief., the Idea of a homestead law would be cne whlt-h, whiio applying to the hu mid region, would also carry with it tuch provisions as would convert it into a desert land homestead act whc:-e the environment so required. The principal use of the homestead act as It stands today is for th? fraud- ulent acquirement of cattle and sheen ranges and the building up or big land holdings by corporations or individuali. who are protecting themselves against the gradual contraction or the range and the absorption of land. Some of these1 enterprises are not entirely bad, especially those where great canals are built and the land is needed for sale to. settlers who will use the water, but the purpose- la accomplished through fraud which should be unnecessary and should be rigorously dealt with by the government. It seems Incredible that men can be -hired so easily to commit perjury. Each and every homesteader who takes up a claim with the idea of selling it to a company, or takes it up to. accommodate his employe? who wants to range his sheep or cattle t the exclusion of others, perjures him self from the time he mak.es the first application to the moment he accomp lishes his final proof and receives his patent. In ail the land laws of the United States a definition of periury is given and the penalties explained. But it has become the fashion to re gard perjury before the land officials as a legitimate means for acquiring land or for making money by helping others to acquire the same. Such an attitude has a demoralizing rfreot upon an-y community and the ethical as well as the practical results are thoroughly had.. -o 1 ' MEXICAN BANDITS KILLED. Four of a Gang of Robb?

ANSWER TO CUBANS Will Be no Change in United States Policy the General Wood Carries Back a Full Response to Doubters Who Feared for Immediate Independence. The Presidency- Washington, Oct 3. General Wo-d has returned to Cuba to be met with a long line of question- marks. He is ready to answer them all. That is onrt outcome of his visit to Washington. H!a answers will show that the United States government Is in the front in the movement for setting up the inde pendent Cuban government. If there be -any lagging behind it will De the fault of the Cubans themselves. After the death of President McKin- ley a question was raised at once in the inland whethe-r the policy which he had matured and which was ripening was likely to be halted, or whether it would go on without change? When the P'att amendment was under discussion .its' enemies in the constitutional con t veniion claimed that while they might count on President Mc-Klnley's known ' good will, they could not tell what would happen should there be a c-hang In administration. That Is. thev oh- Jet ted that there was no certainty of a continuous American policy, When the-y were voicing their objec- tior.s the Cuban radicals were thinking ' only of a change in the American ad- ministration through the natural course of political - events. They did not dream of the tragedy which brought It so suddenly. Yet. when it came they renewed the questions which had been- asked duting the debate In the consti tutional convention. General Wood gives them full an swer. No change will bo made in th-.-policy to which the McKinley admin istration was pledged. iresl.1ent Roos evelt is In full sympathy with that, anl Oeneral Wood has shown that tne ltb- eral reciprocity with Cuba to which President McKinley was committed will be supported by his successor. General Wood while In Washington spoke privately of the criticism whicn his own drclarations had met with In some quarters of the United States, hut he stated that he felt the need of education In this coflntry on the eco nomic conditions In Cuba. As ths md itar governor and the representative of the American authority, he did not think his full duty would be done by merely giving the Cubans good admin istration'. He wants the people of the Island to be traveling the high road t. prosperity when the United States places the government in, their own hands. He believes that if they are happy and cogent they will .get alon lwtter and feel more kindly to th United States than. If they enter upon their experiment in the midst of indus trial distress due- to a hostile ecor.om.c policy enforced by this country. With a deep sense of his own respon sibility Genecal Wood seeks to make clear to the American congress and to the Amc-rican people what he believes Is due to the Island. Feeling as he does he is not likely to be turned aside by unfriendly comment or by criticism that he is going outside his sphere when he seeks to point out the course which the Un!t:d States should t.tke in dealing with Cuba. It Is cjt well settled r.ow as anything can be settled that Estrada Palma will be the first president of the Cuban re- Dubllc. If Dolitlral shrewdness is one i of the tests of capacity for s.: If govern - ment the way in wbich Palma's m- no in-,, h,. hn m.nn h-. ihot the Cuban politicians are equal to the test. Nearly all of them felt that i Palma was the man for the p,ace ana tor ,ne hour One personage alone was In the path. This was Maximo Gomez. If the old Insurgent chief had wanted to be pres ident he could not have been beaten. j But he showed his own sincerity by re fusing to stand as a canaidste ana ivv Indorsing Palma. After that the wjy was open for carrying out the ' plans that had been made mnnlhs and months ago. One of the Cuban ofT.clr.s who was in Washington this week told me how It was all done. They did not want their first chief executive, and possibly their only one, to be the choice cf a party. So they managed to have supporters of Palma in all the political organizations. The nationals wanted to gain povet and the offices for themselves by elect ing Maximo Gomez president and Palma vice president, but General Go mez repudiated their scheme and gave I them a sharp lecture besides. Then : , , , . .. the Palma element among the nation als. which 'had been waiting Jts time. I came forward quietly and proposed him for the first president.

Borrowers of money will find it advantageous to anti-Platt amendment platform.-hut . . . , . . 1 in this, too. they wsre beaten. Among the union democrats or an- licxationlsts Palma was not very T'Op- ular. and was not liked by the amfcl- tious leaaers, especiuit me uiu ;iui;- i nomists. But when they sought lo dodge his candidacy and leave the way clearer for some one else they found that the former insurgents, whom they had been welcoming into their ranks, : were all for Palma. So they have ac- j cepted him. Even the populists, as the shadowy workingmen's. or socialistic n.irtv Is united have had to Indorse Palma Its memhershiD which Is not I-alrna. Jts memcersnip. w nit n m not clgarmakers who were revolutionists, and when the test came they, too. wanted Palma. All this could not have happened unless a genuine and widespread sentiment existed among . the people for Fnlma, yet the way his j friends have managed to make ail the j political parties bow to this sentiment I shows their skill.

Washington. Oct. 3. Judge Advo cate Lemly will probably not fail more, than six or eight more witnesses in ths Schley court of inquiry, but Mr. Ray nor has almoct -forty cn his list, and though, many of these will probably ' not be called, the case is liable to con- ' tinue a month. Lieutenant Doyle, formerly of the flagship Brooklyn, who though one of Sehhey's witnesses, was put on by the department the day -before, was re called. 'Mr. Kaynor asked Lieutenant Doyle how many times he' had seer Schley under fire. "Every time we were undeV fire," was the reply. "What was hjs conduct?" "I did not have an opportunity to see him, as the commodore was at or near the conning tower, but immedi ately previous and after I saw him. He always struck me as being about as well' possessed and composed as possible for a man to be under those circumstance s."
