The people of Yavapai are complain ing that While their county is one of the largest contributors of taxes to the ter ritorial treasury, nothing Is received in return. It is pointed out that no terri torial institution is located at Prescott. which city is ideally situated for the school of mines. It must be conceded that there is much justice in the com plaint. There is no practical reason why the department of mines of the territorial university could not be conducted at Prescott just as conveniently as at Tucson. The university proper has grown to such dimensions and import ance that it would not be crippled in any degree were the school of mines' to be transferred to some other point, and the city of Tucson would not be in jured in any way. On the other hand. It would facilitate the progress of students if they carry on their studies at Prescott, in the midst of an active mining district. The opportunities for first-hand ob servation in the numerous mines near Prescott would be of great value. There are many mines In Pima county, of course, but it happens that they are not in the immediate vicinity of Tucson. The Twenty-second legislature would perform a gracious act should it locate the school of mines at Prescott, and we do not believe that the broad-gauge people of Tucson would make any seri ous objection. The President at Hemphls. The speeches of President Roosevelt are always well thought and forceful, and the address delivered by him at Memphis, Tennessee, Wednesday night and published in full in The Republican of Thursday morning, will rank with his ablest deliverances on current questions. The occasion being the ban quet in honor of General Luke Wright, vice-governor of the Phillipines, Mr. Roosevelt took occasion to pay a grace ful compliment to Tennessee for the great men she has produced and he was eloquent In his allusions to the confed erate veterans and the soldiers of the Spanish and Philippine wars who went forth from that state. It must have touched the pride of the people who heard him when they reflected that , a republican president had come all the way from Washington to pay tribute to an honored ex-confederate, a demo crat, and citizen of Memphis who had returned from the Philippines after dis tinguished and successful service in aiding to establish civil government in the islands. The occasion was an ob ject lesson In the patriotic American ism which sweeps aside party lines and stands for the honor of the country and the flag. The president was especially force ful in stating the so-called "Philippine question" in a few words, when he said: "General Wright's work has been as difficult as it was important. The events of the last four years have defi nitely decided that whether we wish to or not we must hereafter play a great part in the world. We can not escape facing the duties. We may shirk them if we are built of poor stuff, or we may take hold and do them if we are fit sons of our sires but face them we must, whether we will or not. Our duty in the Philippine islands has simply been one of the duties that thus have come upon us. We are there, and we can no more haul down our flag and abandon the islands than we could now abandon Alaska. Whether we are glad or sorry that events forced us to go there is aside from the question; the point is that, as the inevitable result of the war with Spain, we found ourselves in the Philippines ana that we could not leave the islands without discredit. The isl anders were wholly unfit to govern themselves, and if we had left there would have been a brief period .of bloody chaos, and then some other na tion would have stepped Into do th. work which we had shirked. It cannot be too often repeated that there was no question, that the work had to be done. All the question was, whether we would do it well or ill; and, thanks to the choice of men like Governor .Wright, it has been done well." Mr. Roosevelt is fortunate, as was Mr. McKinley, in an ability to express In well chosen words the sentiments of his countrymen. It was natural, since the speech dealt with the Philip pines and Governor Wright's excellent work in establishing peace and law, that the president should notice the calumnies which have been heaped upon the American soldiers, and he was voicing the popular view, unquestion ably, when he defended the enlisted men in. words which should make the ears of the soldier-hater burn. The en tire speech is well worth reading a sec onu time. Rural Free Delivery. The pressure for rural free delivery reported from the postofflce depart ment at Washington shows a remark able change of sentiment or. the part of the farmers in the past few years. Had the improvement depended on the In itiative of the people most directly con cerned It is probable that no experi ment In the line o rural delivery would have been made. Members of congress and the postal officials were chagrined to find that a majority of the farm people were either indifferent- or e'.se opposed to the proposed change. This was due mainly to the Influence of the postmasters of -the fourth class, most of whom, being storekeepers, derived advantage frow having the people call at the village postofflce for their mail. Wherever free delivery was introduced it did not take long for the farmers to become ardent supporters of the sys tem, and now there is hardly any sec tion of well settled country where there is not a demand for its benefits. Ther is .still to be provided for some 700.000 square miles of territory, and it is the hope of the postal offlclaU that the service will be extended at the rate of 12,000 routes a year. This would mean an annual deficit in the department revenues of from $8,000,000 to $12,000,COO for a number of years. It is reason ably assumed that this would diminish In time through the greater use of the mails by the farmers. It is estimated that it would cost $24,000,000 a year to reach every persbn in the United States by free delivery. This is a stupendous amount when compared with the entire cost of the mail service a century ago, and it is a great sum when measured by the ex penditures of the department only fifty years ago. Considering, however, the revenues of the country, and consider ing also the liberality of congress to ward pensioners and in the matter of internal improvements, the appropria tion committee of today would not re gard the sum as extravagant in view of the importance of the object to be attained. A large part of the terri tory still unprovided with free deliv ery is too sparsely settled to invite the attention of the department, and no doubt a certain ratio of population to area will be required as a condition precedent to the extension to the ser vice after the densely settled regions shall have been covered. It is not unreasonable to think that the correspondence of the farmers will increase under the stimulus of im proved postal facilities. The growth of the mail order business, too, will give an increasing revenue to the depart ment through the prompt delivery sys tem. Should the measure providing for special rates for mail order pack ages be adopted by congress the value of rural mail delivery would be much greater. On the whole the experiment of extending the free delivery of let ters Into the farming regions has been satisfactory and the system will prob ably prove a more important enter prise than anybody anticipated. The Negrc-Excluding Constitutions. It is inevitable that sooner or later the supreme court of the United States will be required to pass upon the valid ity of the negro-disfranchising sections of the new constitutions which have been adopted during recent years by several of the southern states, and it looks as If the machinery has at last been set in motion. Action has been commenced at Nor folk. Va., with the idea of having tha recent election in that state, so far as the ten members of congress are con cerned, declared invalid and a declara tion entered that no election was held. This action Is based upon the disfran chisement of negro voters, and Gover nor Montague and the state canvassing board have been cited to appear in the United States court to show cause why a temporary injunction should not be issued to restrain them from issuing certificates of election. The allegation is made that all acts performed under the new constitution of the state, in so far as they related to depriving any citizens t their votes, are invalid and ought noi to stand. This is one way of getting at the ef forts of the southern states to make negative the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the federal constitu tion, and a most interesting legal con test is expected. The action in Vir ginia and the suit filed in the United States supreme court In respect to the' Alabama constitution may probably bring the matter to a head eventually. If the courts should throw out the so-called election of ten democratic members of congress in Virginia it would no doubt hasten the day when the constitutions of the southern states would be revised so as to make the election provisions apply to both whites and blacks. The difficulty with these new constitutions is that they directly discriminate against colored citizens and thus come Into conflict with the federal constitution. To do away with this condition of affairs it would be necessary not to discriminate. No ob jection would be offered to any state constitution that took the ground that certain qualifications were necessary to vote if both white and colored citi zens of the same class were placed on equal footing. A Woman-Hating Judge. It is well for Judge Peter Shields of Sacramento that the women of Califor nia do not vote. If the ladies had a voice in choosing Judicial officers, Judge Shields could see his finish at the next election. On Wednesday of this week he refused the application of Mis. Lizzie A. Kelly for divorce, one of the plaintiff's grievances being that her husband, who is a railroad laborer, made her get up and make the morn ing fires. There was no dispute on this point. "Did you ever say that you would not get up in the morning and light the kitchen fire for any woman?" asked the attorney for Mr. Kelly. "I did," answered the witness. "I am a man who bcliev-es it Is the duty o. the wife to get up in the morning, to light the Are and cook breakfast for the man who has to work hard all day to support his family. A few minutes' rest in bed will do a laboring man a lot of good, and It will not nun nia wife to get up n few minutes earlier and let him rest. She has plenty of time to catch up during the day." ' It Is clear that Judge Shields is a grumpy old cedger, entirely devoid of gallantry. The completed rosier of the Fifty eighth congress shows that not a single pcpulist has been elected thereto; and the few who heretofore have borne the populist label will henceforth call themselves democrats. Senator Harris cf Kansas will be classified as a demo crat by the new congressional direc tory, and so will Representative Shaf roth of Colorado. The pipu!i3t party has completely disappeared until the country enters another period of calamity. The people of San Diego have not lost faith in the proposed San Diego and Eastern railway which is to connect the famous city of "bay and climate" with Phoenix. Their representative has been In the east for some time, laying financial pipe in New York, and working at Washington for a right of way across the Indian reser vation near Yuma. The dispatches state that the right of way will be granted. CURRENT COMMENT 5! Y Civil Servants and the Suffrage. Pliny's remark about Africa, that there was always something new com ing out of it. may now be applied to Australia. That commonwealth Is at present the pre-eminent and supreme land of new fangled notions in politics and sociology. Some of its schemes are doubtless good, such as the Aus tralian ballot though we are not at all sure that Australia deserves full credit for it and the Torrens system of hind registration. Some features of the Australian and New Zealand schemes of industiial arbitration also appear to be commendable. Rut there are other antipodal notions which seem simply fantastic ar.J hich we cannot persuade ourselves the world will ever generally adopt, or w hich, indeed, Aus tralia itself will find permanently sat isfactory. Such Is the proposal, reported a few days ego, to deprive civil servants of the suffrage. We are told that the Victorian ministry is actually consid ering the question of introducing a bill for withholding the ordinary legislative suffrage from all members of the civil service, but letting the latter ek-ct two special representatives to the as sembly and one to the senate. The in citing caui-e of this extraordinary pro posal is obvious. The civil servants in that country are numerous, including more than ten thousand employes or the state railroads, and they have been using their political power for their own gain. In not a few constituencies they hold the balance of power, and are able to dictate the election of legisla tors pledged to promote their interests in the direction of increasing salaries and decreasing the amount of labor to be done by them. Not many weeks ago they threatened a general strike and a complete "tieup" of all the raliro.iri" and mall service rather than submit to a small decrease of salaries wnicn the straitened condition of the state treasury seemed to make necessary. It was only through an extraordinary manifestation of. public opinion against them that they were for the time dis suaded from ordering the strike, but they issued a manifesto menacingly phrased, in which they made It per fectly clear that they proposed to use both the power of the ballot and tha power of striking for their own ad vantage whenever an auspicious op portunity was presented. It is for the purpose of. depriving them of their power at the polls, and thus in the state legislature, that the ministry is thinking of depriving them of the suffrage. Rut it will doubtless seem to many people that the remedy is more menacing than the disease. To enact such a law would be to make or civil servants a peculiar and inferior caste, excluded from the. common rights of citizens. They would be not so much the servants as the slaves of the state. In such circumstances it would not be easy to induce self-respecting and competent men to ester the public service, while the moral ef fect of such practical ostracism upon those who did enter could scarcely fail to be bad. The members of the civil service would be made to feel that they had net the same interest in the state that other citizens hud, but that they were political Ishmaelites, who would be Justified in taking whatever they could lay their handa upon. They would become a mere bund of merce naries, and ths service would almost certainly become ine.licient and cor rupt. New York Tribune. -o- SUPERSTITION AROUT CATS.
