President Roosevelt's denial of the charge that the administration has been employing' federal patron age fur political purposes, emphatic as It was and bristling: with such char acteristic epithets as "false and malic ious," will hardly be convincing any where in this broad land seething ev erywhere with the activity of office holders. The charge originally made related to appointments In Ohio. Sen ators from other states thereupon complained of similar appointments within their jurisdiction.. In none of these charges we believe was there any reference to appointments In the south ern states where the president more vehemently defends his appointments. We have on one side the observa tions of the senators and others, and on the other the flat denial of the pres ident that he has improperly used of ficial patronage. His statement con tains no proof nothing but his more or less hackneyed asseveration of his purpose to employ in the public service men of the "highest standard of char acter and capacity."' People living within the various communities, where Fuch appointments have been made will best know whether the president has carried out his purpose. It is however a matter of common knowledge that never before on the eve of a national convention has there , been such unrestrained activity on the part of federal officials. It U known that it has been encouraged and even ordered by the heads of depart ments. It is well known that post ' masters and other government ap pointees in the eastern states have been summoned to Washington for consultation regarding political condi tions within their various spheres and there is one recorded instance of a Massachusetts postmaster who on re turning from the national capital, in a fit of disguest, resigned from the state committee that he might be har ried no more by the administration politicians. In his statement the president rather betrays his own absorbing Interest, in his allusion to "bolting conventions" of republicans in the southern states, having reference no doubt to the Flor ida conventions last week. The "bolt ers"are denounced by the president as are those who the president believes inspired them to set themselves up in opposition to the. Imperial will. ' On what ground the president re sents the name of the "officeholders' convention" as applied to one of the Florida conventions he does not inform us in his statement; neither does he of fer a reason for calling the 1 other a bolters' convention. The designation, "officeholders' convention" was given the one by the Associated Press and oUier news agencies. The delegates at large selected by that convention con sisted cf three federal officeholders and the national committeeman. The dispatches furthermore intimated that the "bolters" convention had an ap pearance of regularity, though not sanctioned byjthe federal machine. It Is easily thinkable that the par tisanship of the president should com municate Itself to his appointees and that only susceptible appointees should be named by him. In the controversy between the pres ident and the senators, leaving out en tirely proven facts, all the circum stances favor the charges of the sena tors. ' The Oklahoma corporations commis sion wants to know why the railroads have reduced their train service. That will be easy to iinswer doubtless a lack of business. The railroads may go Mill farther into their explanation and attribute this falling off of business to the weird legislation of the new state and adjoining states, as well as to the agitation which has shaken the whole country. Mrs. Ellen M. Stone, the former kid naped missionary, is projecting herself above the horizon again at a time when we are trying to concentrate our thoughts on national politics. We trust that If the Bulgarian bandits ever get hold of her again, they'll keep her. Secretary Taffs designation, last night of the president's late special message as a bvigle call Is not so wide ly different from the Providence Jour nal's Idea of it as a "blast from the1 White House." ' It Is no wonder that a riot was started when Chicagoans were denied admission to the McDonald, trial yes terday. When the police attempt to deprive the populace of a view of J. Ham Lewis' pink whiskers the rights of Americans guaranteed them by the constitution are Infringed uion. A Boston reformer wants all liars disfranchised. Membership In the Annnlas dub would, doubtless be ac cepted as prima facie evidence of guilt. Senator Jonathan Bourne of Oregon Is becoming a bigger nuisance than Carrie Nation. He Is now trying to revive the Roosevelt third-term boom. SOLID SI ONE WALL OF PU5LIG SENTIMENT Against Which the Advocate of an Instructed Delegation Are Running. The gentlemen who set themselves the task, or rather, were set at the task, of securing an Instructed delega tion from this territory to the national republican convention are beginning to encounter a smothering adverse senti ment. Word cornea from . different parts of the territory that a majority of the republicans are opposed to in structions on principle and for reasons of policy. This opposition ha nothing whatever to do with the opinion of re publicans with regard to candidate for the presidency. It is based in part upon a resentment of the national- ad ministration's assumption that It owns the territories. The Tucson Post which reflect the views of Republican of Pima which will send a larger delegation to the ter ritorial convention . tfian any other county thus tells why the delegation to Chicago should be left free: From the present Indications the coming republican territorial conven tion for the selection of delegates to the republican national convention will be the scene of a very warm political battle. The lines are already plainly drawn, the gauntlet has been thrown down, and the fight is on. It is purely and simply a sts-uggle for supremacy between a part of the federal officials of the territory, led by the governor, on the one side and the republicans gener ally on the other. The federal officers who are prominent In trie fight, natur aly desire an Instructed delegation. The reason for this Is too plain to call for comment. They hold thein appoint ment by the grace of the president, and of course, self Interest and future hope demands strict obedience to the will of their official maker. , Let it) be understood 'that the Post has no fight with any candidate nor with the federal officials. The presi dential appointees In this territory are most satisfactory: they are conducting the affairs of their respective offices In an able, efficient and dignified Tnan ner, with credit to themselves and to the administration. But, are there no republicans in Arizona, outside of of ficial circles, who are capable of at tending to political matters? If there are. shall they be relegated to back seats, or shut out entirely from republican conferences? There is little to be said In favor of instructed delegations at any time, es pecially In the territories, except from the standpoint of those who are hold ing office by appointment, and who seek to lay the foundation for the further extension of political favor. The coming national convention is of peculiar and particular interest to this territory- Much may be gained by careful and judicious management, and to jeopardize any chance of advantage the territory might have by tying up her delegation with instructions for any one, would be little short of crim inal. Much activity is evident in polit ical circles, and there are many aspir ants for the republican nomination for president. There is no one well enough informed at present to say who will be the nominee. The literary bureaus are very busy in an effort to convince the people in favor of their several can didates, but no one man has the whip handle on the situation. In this political game Arizona has a hand, and to play her cards before she gets a seat would be the height of foolishness. Let the republicans of the territory select able, level-headed men to represent them in the national con vention ,and send them absolutely un trammelled and unfettered; then, once on the ground, they are in position to become acquainted with the situation as It really is and use whatever strength they may have to advantage.

Pa If first bottle falls to beueftt, money back. WILES MEDICAL CO.. Elkhart. Ind. Who knows but that Arizona's dele gates might hold the deciding vote in the contest? Shall they lose every chance they have because of Instruc tions which can serve no purpose save that already stated? The people of this territory are. just as loyal to the president as those of any other section of the tTnlted States, and they have good and sufficient rea son for being so, but is there any more reason why the president should say who shall succeed him rhan there Is for the exercise of the same privilege by any other officer the sheriff of the county, or the treasurer, ror instance? Summing up the entire situation from the standpoint of good sense, good politics, and more than all. the welfare of Arizona, there Is absolutely no valid reason for an Instructed delegation, but a most urgent demand for a represen tation wholly free to exercise Its best judgment for the Interests of the terri tory. This Is the position of the Post and whatever may be the results we will maintain it to the end. As me, "What shall Saint Valentine bring To fill the heart-aching soul?"
