Gardner, 305 South Spring street. PHOENIX. ARIZONA. AUG. 23, 1902. Genere.1 Rweeell A. Altfer. General ltussell A. Alger, according to a statement made by him last Mon day that he would inform the public eorne time this week regarding his can didacy for the Michigan senatorship. made vacant by the death of Senator McMillan, has announced that he will be a candidate for that high office. There are other aspirants, but there is little doubt that General Alger will succeed Mr. McMillan, and there is no doubt that a very large majority of tha republicans of the country will be glad to see him in the senate. He Is the foremost citizen of the great state in which he has resided for forty years, during which he has contributed more than any other one man to its great ness Though he had been the governor of hla state, and had for years been fore most in the councils of his party, where his wisdom was universally recognized, his chief claim to fame will rest upon his conduct of the office of secretary of war during the conflict with Spain. His management of the affairs of the department during that period was the marvel of the war boards of the world. Never before had so large an army been mobilized and cared for within so brief a period. The burdens put upon the war department in the civil war. heavy as they were, were by no means so great. Notwithstanding General Al ger's splendid management of affairs, he became the object of bitter attack by an active and fault finding minority, supplemented by an element within his own party. He retired from the cab inet with tha consciousness of having performed his duty well and with tha confidence that time would bring ap proval of his management of the mili tary affairs of the country in a most trying period. Of this episode in the public career of General Alger the New York Sun has said: "It is sometimes the lot of a man in high office to serve as a lightning rod That was General Alger's function in 1S98 and 1899. He had not invited it, and his achievements as a first-class executive officer in a moat important post during a national emergency de served a pleasanter end; but General Alger accepted the Injustice of it with the quiet dignity of a brave man and a self-sacrificing patriot. Since the time of General Alger's resignation as secretary of war there has been a great change of opinion concerning him and the character of his services to the government during the Spanish war; and this on the part of many of those who were in the faction of his bitter assailants. The somewhat tardy rec ognition of the truth of history is not confined to the state of Michigan." The succession of General Alger to the United States senate would be a matter of gratification to the people of this , territory, for he has always been the friend of Arizona, and he has shown his . friendship in many ways. Before his retirement from the cabinet the subject of the re-establishment of the post at Whipple had been taken up and it ha& the secretary's strong ap proval. Had he remained in office the rehabilitation of the post would have been accomplished much earlier. In other ways the people of the territory have been shown that they had an , earnest friend in General Alger. Their hope Is therefore natural that they may have an advocate in the United States uenate, where one is so greatly needed at this juncture of territorial affairs. Tht Gat Injunction. "Me fren', Jawn W. Gates," to whom Mr. F. P. Dunne sometimes refers in a facetious spirit, has gone east, ac cording to 1 telegraphic reports rrom Denver, presumably for the purpose of joining his lamentations with those of the striking anthracite miners, who foresee in government by Injunction the downfall of the republic. Mr. Gates perhaps never before was In direct sympathy with the working element, but now he knows how it feels to be brought up with a sudden jerk. He felt a slight twitch of an injunction at the time he was putting the finishing touches on his admirably constructed July corner. But that did not hurt him so that he was not prepared for tho jolt he received in Denver this week. Mr. Gates has formed the habit of acquiring what he goes after. He went after the Colorado Fuel and Iron com pany of which he was a director. He secured the control of a majority of the stock and began to plan for the reor ganization ot the company. The plau was to be put into execution immedi ately after the annual meeting of the stockholders .which was fo be held at Denver on Wednesday. Mr. Gates had selected the president for the recon structed company and he had In his mind the new directorate. The only obstacle he could see to the carrying out of his plan was the few days that intervened before the date of the Den ver meeting. But time would remove that obstacle. That meeting has not been held, though the time for it is passed. Or, to be more accurate, the meeting was be gun but was adjourned by an Injunc tion before the time came for the elec tion of new officers and directors, so that the Colorado Fuel and Iron com pany remains unreconstructed. The injunction does not In can that Mr. Gates is permanently beaten. Those who know the man have little doubt that the victory of his adversaries will be short lived if he has the law on his side on a hearing to dissolve the in junction or make it permanent, but he has been taught that injunctions are not. as Mr. Bryan and many other per sons suppose, for the sole purpose of aiding in the oppression of the labor ing man. In this case it was employed for the temporary relief of the weaker party who had no other remedy. The weaker party may not deserve a reme dy, and if it does not, when the proper time comes the protection of the court will be withdrawn. That is the way with all injunctions. Courts no doubt abuse their power sometimes, but no one would desire that the power to apply a heroic and only remedy against wrong should be abolished. The contest between Charles M. Shannon and Colonel Wilson for the nomination by the democratic conven tion for delegate to congress will be practically at an end tonight, though the convention will not be held for three weeks. It may be said that the con test will be ended when the res.ults of the primaries in the four wards of th city are known. At the present time it appears that the Wilson forces will win. It is the opinion of those who have gone over the field carefully that they will carry the First, Third and Fourth wards, and that will be enough. If the support expected in the country districts on the north side of the river should be forthcoming, they could lose another ward and still' win. But then a victory in politics is never won until the votes are counted, and the votes in this contest will not be counted until tonight. Experts who make a special study of treasury operations are stUl predicting that the new revenue laws will not prevent a surplus of government in come for the current fiscal year. But Just at present expenditures are run ning considerably ahead of the receipts. The excess of the former during th-i past week has been almost two million dollars, bringing the deficit for a month and a half of the fiscal year up above nine and a half millions. It is still too soon, however, to draw any general conclusions. The free gold in the treas ury is still growing and the total or available cash ranges round two hun dred millions without any special signi ficance in its changes. Only a short time ago the oldest skull or, for that matter, piece of hu man bone ever found was discovered in Kansas. The event is of more Im portance than that Just recorded in California, where the remains of a gigantic primeval bear have been lo cated. But the latter fact not less thau the former is encouraging to scientists. It may be that sometime those lost an cestors of ours that bridge the interval In developed form between the simian and human beings can be picked up somewhere within American territory. The odious Putnam Strong says ot himself and his erratic lady love:- "We shall never return to America." Thera are compensations In all things. If confirmed bachelors are the de generates that Dr. E. Benjamin An drews says that they are, they do the world a kindness by not marrying. ! CURRENT COMMENT I A "Wholesome Decision. The New York Journal reports a case, recently settled In the courts of In diana, in which the hard sense of the court below and the wisdom of the ap pellate Jurisdiction are conspicuous. It should be widely published, for the reason that every community is more or less afflicted with the same class of nuisance that this decision is calcu lated to repress, to-wit, a man who greets his friend with a resounding slap on the back, or a vise-like grip and an excruciating squeeze of the hand. Were it not for the reluctance that the average man feels to havlny any unpleasantness with even the .most Injudicious friend, a blow or a kick would often be the response to this sort of salutation. As it is, the Injured party usually smothers his indignation and tries to smile as the friendly brute passes along to bestow his sledge-hammer pats and bulldog grips on other unfortunates. It happened at Indianapolis that an aged man was thrown down and in jured by a chance encounter with a friend who had long cultivated the habit of striking his Intimate acquaint ances, whirling them around, and giv ing them such hot name as "old sar dine." The aged and Injured citizen' brought suit for damages and was I awarded a substantial sum. The de- Ifendant appealed. His counsel sub mitted that he had meant no barm; that he was a friend of the man whom he had injured; that it was his habit ual way of treating his friends, and that the bad result was a mere accident for which he ought not to be held pe cuniarily responsible. But the court, in reviewing the case, said: "The facts shown are sufficient to condemn the habit of so-called 'horse-play' between grown men. . The defense relied upon has been many times tersely expressel by younger people in the phrase, I didn't mean to. Plaintiff was Injured through no fault of his own. His right to be secure in person was violated. The appellant was responsible therefor. His act was the primary cause of the plaintiff's injury." That is good law, and also sound common sense, a combination that Is less plentiful than it ought to be. Checking' Matrimonial Folly. There was a Daniel come to judg ment in the court of general sessions the other day. In the person of Judge Foster. A young scoundrel was before him, convicted of stealing. It was pleaded for the prisoner that a young woman was waiting to marry him, in order to reform him, and that he should therefore be let go. The Judge shrewdly remarked that that was one of tho best reasons for not letting him go. and he then sent him to jail for six months, with an expression of hope that in that time the young woman would acquire sufficient information and discretion to cause her to break her engagement with the prisoner. The judge was quite right. An In calculable amount of domestic misery and of human woe In general has come from the Infatuated practice of "mar rying a man to reform him." The thing does not work. It is against human nature. Instead of meaning reforma tion for the man, it means sorrow and degradation for the woman. If a bad man does not think enough of a woman to make himself worthy of her before marriage, he will not be likely to do so afterward. Taere are probably some exceptions to the rule, but in the over whelming majority of cases It is inex orable. The chances are that If the judge had let him go and get married. Instead of sending him to jail, this young crim inal would within six months hav been clubbing his wife with a bed slat because she would not "rush the growler" or go out and steal for him New York Tribune. Cheap Litigation. While we have never shared the opin ion of those who profess to foresee nothing but defeat for the Northern Securities Company as the ultimate re sult of the suits against it, the great importance of settling in the highest court all the questions at Issue has not failed to appeal to us with increasing force. It is therefore a source of dis appointment that the injunction suit recently under hearing in this city should have disclosed dishonorable, or at least questionable, motives on the part, of those responsible for it, and that its conduct should have degener ated into a performance possessing no more dignity than a bit of opera bouffe. The proceeding turns out to hav been a wholly artificial intervention a something very like a conspiracy. Viewed in the most charitable light it was nothing more than an effort to gain cheap notorlty or perhaps to Jug gle the stock market into a movement of a point or two one way or the other. Its inevitable tendency is to discredit all similar litigation as insincere and speculative, and thus to deter honest shareholders with real or fancied griev ances from appealing to the courts to protect them in their rights. In ita mood at the moment the public would simply laugh down any minority stock holder who might happen to want to test the validity of a corporation merger. It is deplorable that questions pos sessing real dignity and importance should fall into such cheap handling. New York Commercial. . Fight it Out. Bryan has taken pains to explain that, while he will not be a candidate for the presidency in 1904, he will use all his influence to prevent the nomina tion by the democrats of anybody who was not loyal to both ticket and plat form in both a896 and 1890. In other words, he will do his best to tie the party for the third time to the doc trines which have already defeated It In two national campaigns. This ren ders it essential that the progressive democrats everywhere shall continue to wage their fight against Bryanism whenever It becomes necessary to de fine the attitude of the party, as was done In the convention of the Ninth Indiana district yesterday. The pro gressives wished to ignore the past and conduct the present campaign on Is sues looking toward the future. The mossbacks openly declared that they would not support the nominee unless a plank should be put in the platform expressing confidence in Bryan and In dorsing the Kansas City deliverance of 1900. The mossbacks won in this case, but in other districts in Indiana the progressives have carried the day. The only thing to do Is to fight It out every time that the Bryanites raise the is sue, and trust to the good sense of tho people for final victory.
