The Arizona Republican la on sale at all of Amos' street news stand wagons In Los Angeles, San Diego and Long Beach. PHOENIX AHIZ FEBRUARY 19. 19S MISSED THE POINT. The Fhoenix Republican opposes the nomination of Secretary Taft for two reasons, both of which it seems to us. are peculiar, to say the least. First. The Republican is opposed to President Roosevelt because he favored the proxsition to make one state of New Mexico and Arizona, and second. Pres ident Roosevelt Is in favor of Mr. Taft's nomination. It is true that Mr. Roosevelt did favor joint statehood, and it is true that Mr. Roosevelt does favor tho nomination of Mr. Tart, bat It would take the average intellect a long time to figure out how or why either or both of these facts could be made a satisfactory reason for opposing Taft. The Albuquerque Journal. TUe foregoing discloses a complete j misapprehension of The Republican's position with respect to Mr. Taft and as well the failure by the Journal to grasp the very plain purport of a Re publican editorial on which the Jour nal's comment is founded. This paper Is not opposing the nomination of Mr. Taft. Not a word has it ever printed that might be interpreted to be hostile to his nomination but on the contrary The Republican has made frequent and full acknowledgment of his emin ent fitness for tho presidency. But we are opposed to an instructed delegation on principle and on the grounds of policy. There is no assur ance that Mr. Taft will be nominated and we therefore would not bind the delegation from this territory to -the possible losing cause of Mr. Taft or any other candidate for the nomina tion. The two delegates from Arizona may be able to accomplish much for the territory, during the national re publican convention. They may be able to accomplish nothing, and cer tainly they could accomplish nothing j if they were bound in advance to any j cajididate. j That The Republican was opposed ' to President Roosevelt's jointure ! scheme and that it has never since ( regarded him as the friend of Arizona. ' is now admitted as The Republican I has frequently asserted. That we look I with suspicion upon any political plans t the resident has in mind regarding i this territory isNclso admitted. One of ! his plans, that to secure an instructed delegation, nominally for Secretary Taft. we would look upon with sus picion if wc were not already cogni zant of the fact that Arizona cannot afford to instruct its delegation for any candidate. That President Roosevelt favors the nomination of Mr. Taft lias nothing whatever to do with The Republican's attitude toward the latter and equally as little to do with its attitude toward the former. That is merely coinci dental. We reix-at that The Republi can is not in any way opposing Mr. Taft ar-.d that It has at no time urged the sending of anti-Taft delegates to Chicago. Hut it is violently opposed to the carrying out of President Rootevelt's orders for an instructed -legation for his plain or ulterior purposes. i The Republican is convinced that it j represents the large bulk of territo- ! rial republican sentiment in this mat- i tor and it has most excellent reason to believe that the delegates sent from ' Arizona, whoever may be tiieir choice ! for nominee, will consider their choice j only after they, have made a careful consideration of the territory's inter- ' ests. If those interests cun be ad- ' vanced better by the delegHt-s' sup- ! port of Mr. Taft. he will get their ! votes; if not, the votes will be cast i for some other candidate. This Is plainly The Republican's i position, is there in all Arizona an advocate of an instructed delegation i who will dare publicly and squarely take an:' other position? j POPPIKS To miK CINDERS., The ciU' of Kan Fnmcisco Is already making preparations t nive the J;ick ies a royal welcome when the battle shiii fleet arrives there. Among other things the municipal authorities plan to array the city in gala attire, and for that purpose. hae culled landscape ganleiMTK to their aid. A oispatch states that nasturtium and poppy seeds will be sowed on the sIojhs that have not been rebuilt since the fire, so thft when 11a:- comes the spaces littered with brick and ashes will be covered with gorgeous color. This is a unieue scheme to hide the scars of San Francisco's great fire, and con tains m hint for municipal authorities Ixi other cities which have viusighly waste places, even though devastating fires are not responsible for them. It might be possible to find places in Phoenix, where the luxuriant nastur tium could be coaxed to spr?a.d its mantle over spots offensive to the sight of critical visitors. But now that we think of it, tsan ; Francisco has gashes and sc.trs w hich j poppies cannot hide the memory j and effect of long years of graft and misrule. And the present attempt at renovation does not promise a much , im.r moral architecture than that j which crumbled with the fall of Schmitz and Ruef. 'Secretary Taft was treading on dan- rerous ground" thinks the Providence Journal, "when he attempted to tell his audience at Grand Rapids what Lincoln would do were he alive today. He might approve the president's pol- 1 . , icies of course, but then again. he might not. .It is sufficient to know that he met the problems of his own time with statesmanlike insight and courage" Congress has been informed that mince pie caused as many murders as alcohol. Mince pie has not yet been made contraband under the Georgia prohibitory law, however. According to the Pittsburg papers, the Black Hand has a queen. Of course. Whenever trouble arises anywhere, somebody always finds a woman mixed in it somewhere. The Chicago Tribune calls Senator Jeff Davis a "brutum fulmea." The Senator Is sa'd to be uncertain wheth er to regard the Tribuno as his friend or enemy. J.. if AT I II. U lUUIl Illlul cM SALT LAKE CITY VISITOR. J. A. Fritsch of yalt Lake City.

Mr. Conner was well acquainted with him and before Rand died, he asked him to write to George C. Rand and gave several ad dresses.
