PHOENIX, ARIZONA, SEPT. 18, 190S.
YES OR NO?
As to the amiability of the Hon.
Marcus A. Smith, Arizonians are all
aTerd. Many, if not most of his
ffllnw citizens, would be pleased to
see him installed for life in such
congenial surroundings as he has en
joyed for the last twenty years, but
at the same time they have some
thing else to consider just now the
welfare of Arizona and of them
selves. We believe now that a ma
jority of the voters of the territory
are convinced that they can not serve
themeslves by serving Mr. Smith any
There has been a biennial dispute
for years as to whether Mr. Smith
has been an efficient representative
at Washington. That is immaterial
and irrelevant now. Mr. Smith may
have accomplished as much as it
would have been possible for any
democrat to accomplish against ad
verse influences but there is noth
ing in the present situation to in
duce the belief that he can accom
plish any more in the immediate
future than in the past. And we
want something done in the imme
diat future. There is a greater
probability that it may be done than
there ever was before. We want
In all Arizona, there Is not an
intelligent friend of Mr. Smith who
will undertake to tell an intelligent
citizen that Mr. Smith can possibly
contribute an iota to that desired
end. Mr. Smith himself knows that
his election this fall could only serve
as a brake on our progress toward
admission. He knows that if he
should be elected all hope of state
hood at the short session would van
ish with the announcement of the
vote on the night of November 3;
that the weight of his triumph
would crush the hopes of Arizonians
for at least a year, and, perhaps for
a full congressional term.
No situation was ever plainer than
this one; no contingency could be more
of a fulfilled certainty. This is
matter which affects republicans no
more than it does democrats; for
once at least the interests of the
members of both parties are iden
tical and we believe that a majority
of the voters realize it now and that
still more of them will realize it
before election day.
A vote for Cameron is not a vote
for republican principles, for as we
have frequently asserted, no party
principles are involved in this con
test. Nor could they be involved.
The voters of Arizona have one plain
issue before them and only one. It
is immediate statehood. A vote for
Smith is "No." A vote for Cameron
is "Yes." The matter would not be
plainer if the ballots were so printed.
SOME FOLKS WOULD CALL IT A
It has often been comfortably ob
served that we of the Salt River val
ley would not have known anything
about the panic if people had not
tome in from the outside and told
us of its existence. All we know
of the consequent depression we have
learned from outsiders, returning
tourists and the newspapers,
We are minded of this again by
statements of merchants and others
regarding local conditions. While
generally throughout the country this
lias been the worst year since 1S93,
with more men out of employment,
with money harder to get, with a
greater number of business failures
and with greater uncertainty regard
ing the future, the past summer has
been the best in the business history
The business of the postoffice for
July exceeded the volume for the
corresponding month of last year by
$00. The business of Wells Fargo
& Co. for the same month ,was $1,000
greater than for July a year ago.
Lumber men and material men say.
some of them, that their sales for
July and August, two months during
which very little has been expected,
were six times as great as they were
for the same months last year, and
for each of those months this year.
greater than during the most active
month of any earlier year. ...
Merchants, grocerymen, dry goods
men and others estimate the Increase
of their business for the summer
months at from 25 to EO per cent
over the same months of any pre
vious year. It is said that the resi
dence building which has been going
on since the beginning of this year
is of greater volume than that of
any previous three year' period.
We have frequently referred "to the
month of July, not because that has
been a banner month, but because
the figures for it have already been
made up. In most lines August is
believed to have been better and
September so far as it has gone has
been still better. The prospect for
the fall and winter is regarded as
the brightest we have ever had. Al
most anywhere else this would be
called a boom.
The accident at Fort Myer yes
terday, resulting in the death of
Lieutenant Selfridge, will for a time
be a sort of damper on aviation, fol
lowing so closely the successful
flights of Orville Wright. It em
phasizes a danger of aerial travel
which will always be present, a dan
ger similar to that described by a
negro always attending sea voyages.

LIFE WAS A BORE.
A Bisbee Miner Tries to Commit Sui
cide at Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, Sept. IT. Fred Giovan
da, an Italian miner recently employed
by the Copper Queen mine at Bisbee,
attempted to commit suicide at the
county hospital this afternoon by hang
ing himself. Giovanda was discovered
by one of the internes before life was
extinct and was cut down and revived.
Giovanda came here from Arizona
six weeks ago and was a patient at
the California hospital under the care
of Dr. Moore. He developed symptoms
of mental disorder and was removed to
the detention ward at the county hos
pital for observation.
It is believed that he will be commit

TO BEAT INJUNCTION.
Mr. Gompers Said the Federationist
was Prematurely Issued.
Washington, Sept. 1". The taking
of testimony in the Gompers-Mitchell-Morrison
case, in connection with the
anti-boycott proceedings instituted by
the Buck Stove & Range company
against the officers of the American
Federation of Labor, will be resumed
by Examiner Harper this morning.
Gompers was placed on the stand and
testified that a certain edition of the
federation organ had been gotten out
earlier than usual, so as to precede the
granting of the injunction restraining
it from printing certain articles in ref- !
erencc to the case. !
A WORLD PEACE
Being Arranged by the Interparlia
Rerlin. Sept. 17. The Interparlia
mentary Union met yesterday in the
chamber of the Reichstag to discuss
anew the peace of the world and how
it can be maintained through arbitra
tion. More than seven hundred dele
gates filled the chamber, and the chan
cellor was present, also nearly all the
members of the Prussian and Imperial
cabinets. David Jayne Hill, American
ambassador, and Nicholas Murray
ISutler were also present. Prince Von
Ruolow delivered the welcoming ad
dress. He spoke in French, and said
the Germans longed for .pwice . and
pointed to their efforts to that end.
CHICAGO IN A FOG.
In Spite of Care There Were Numerous
Chicago, Sept. 17. Dense, fog- this
morning proved a severe handicap to
the transportation companies and was
responsible for a number of accidents.
Trains were compelled to run at slow
speed, as the engineers were unable
to distinguish signals.
An interurban car from Aurora
crashed into an elevated train and
several persons were injured. Two la
borers were run down and killed by
trains. A suburban train crashed into
the Chicago Northwestern limited in
the yards and half a dozen people were
