Clark Churchill died of fatty degeneration of the heart. His death was sudden but not unex pected. Gen. Churchill was well and favorably known throughout Arizona. He came here in 1877 and was prominently identified politically, financially and socially with the best interests of the Ter ritory. He -was for a number of years its Attorney-General. Ix a mild and inoffensive man ner we would respectfully call the attention of the Phoenix Republican to the fact that tile Yuma Times is not in existence. This paragraph is called forth by the action of the first mentioned paper in clipping our news items and crediting them to the Times. In onr last issue we had a few lines about our new ice volant and this we notice has been accorded the usual fate. The Videtle was in error yester day in its conclusions that our wor thy townsman, D. C. Reed, had switched off from San Diego to Los Angeles on the railroad question, Mr. Reed says that he never would aid any trans continental railroad that did not make San Diego its ob jective point. He is still in harness for San Diego, first, last, and all the time. His shiboleth is still, "on to Yuma." Man Dicjo Vidette. We' have received from the pub lishers, tire Zeno Mauvais Music Co., of 7G0 Market street, S. F., a copy of the new two-step march. "The New Bully' arranged from the popular song of Unit name. It is showy and brilliant, and not. very difficult the theme being dis tinctly brought out and embellish ed. It is bjing played everywhere hy bands and orchestras, and lun, though a new composition, already won a wide popularity. This march will bs a welcome addition to. the jiiusical library, as it is not at all commonplace. Your dealer will supply it. 40 cents a copy. Whatsoever to the contrary may be paid the West remains the young man's haven. That he may find himself, confronted by the ogre of hardship is true but it is only by undergoing the crucible test that gold heconns of commercial value. Garfield said: "Pitch a boy overboard; let. him sink or swim for himself. I never knew one to sink who was worth the saving." Just so it is with the West; for him who ha? not the strength to fight down temptation and overcome imidship it has noplace. For him who is thus able ityet remains the golden land. Thelorests, the plains and the mountains have been pioneered but with few exceptions the advantages of fifty years ago do yet exist. The men who found the Comstocks took away it gold. The buffaloes are gone, the cowboy days are over and the stage coach no longer rumbles over mountain trails. But there are opportunities other than those. No one can sav -.i .. , ,, WlUl :lI13f authority Hint the Coill- stocks are all gone. The hills of the .Southwest are not half pros pected and no one knows but what there may be hills upon hills of gold. If the cowboy is gone there i something ele to dofor the logic of Industrial economy does not per mit the atrophy of one pursuit without supplying a substitute. If the express messenger and stage coach days are over the railroad is here. Snreh every sensible man must rocognize that all this inveighing against the West is nonsense. Here are railroads to ha built, irri gation system to construct, mines to work farms and orchards to be cultivated and cities to build.

For others there is no room. This is the land of individual free dom and individual effort. For the drones we have neither meat, bread nor a place to sleep To succeed you must help yourself and behaving thus there is not a man in all of our 40U.000 square miles who will see you perish by the way side. You must prove your worth, though. You must "do with your might what your hands find to do." A CONTRAST. ''You may not receive this note for several days for we have had a twelve inch snow; the cars are snow-bound and communication cut ofT." A private letter from Denver received at the Sextinel office this week." What a contrast! There men and women, bundled in furs and great coats, arc hurry ing over slippery, snow covered pavements, splashing through the dirty slush or huddled in street cars whose windows are covered with the congealed breath of a chilled and shivering human mass. Here the sun shines! There the winter winds are howl ing mournfully around the corners, whistling in each crack and crevice or wailing through the bare "thresh ing arms of the leatless trees. Here the balmy breezes that float through the windows bear upon their bosoms the perfumed fragrance of the roses, the orange bloom and the blossom of the green umbrella tree amid whose' full leaved branches the birds are build ing their nests. There are dreary dripping skies and from the eaves of each mansion, hut and building, the long icicles are hanging as" though the very roofs were weeping for the' summer dead and gone. Here the blue sky of heaven stretches its grand cerulean arc from the foot-hills of the Gilas to the purple Cocopah and "ripe, ripe, almost ripe," the robins in the fig trees sing. What a contrast? Prescott is to have a Western Union telegraph office and a big reduction in telegraph rates-- In ld92 wiicn the late 0. Columbus discovered this country he was con tiilcrably surprised to find the natives to be of a dark red color. He thought they should be surprised at the sight of a wiiite man. When he had learn ed to talk their language he asked them if they had ever seen a white man helorc.. An old chief, says "Don H. Kedzie in the Lordshurg Liberal, Lold him that to the west 'across sea and land many moon's travel, where two mighty rivers met, at the spot where tradition said the devil had moulded the hinges of hell, in a vil large known as You-May, dwelt a white man named Dorriugton, peace fully engaged in the publication of a newspaper. Cortex, when he sacked Montezuma's palace, found a file of the-e papers, the Sextixel, in the royal library. When Coronado reach ed the Colorado lie found Dorringtnn had the coui.ty printing grabbed. Ho immediately started a new paper to divide the patronage. Corcnado went busted when lie printed the land of fice notice for the original Peralta, Baron of Arizona, and got beat out of his pay. Dorrington bought in the Coronado office at the sheriff's sale and piled the outfit up m Ids back yard. Since then governors, congress men, judges, railroads, water com panies and irriga ion companies have started papers at the continence of the Gila and the Colorado. JJorringion has purchased them all from the sheriff and piled them up in his back yard. XoW a new candidate for fame ami bankruptcy has appeared on the scene in the person of a ret! headed school director, who proposes to start a new paper. This is too much fir Dorrington. As red-he.ided school director for a rival rival! Ugh ! The worm has turned. The back yard is filled. Dorrington now swears lie will not help out another bankrupt pn.nt shop. The sheriff' lias received tin; 1 ist bid fron 1dm. If another paper is started it is at the peril of the starter. He i- done. TWO'S. To our exchange tabic this week there came two visitors. Two brand new infants wrapped iifthej swaddling clothes of journalism and bearing the pitiful legend: 'Vol. I , No I." Alas! How many brave fronts have worn it. How many havrs saliied out into the swirling stream of crowded endeavor, with their promises and mottoes ' painted on their prow, feeling that there was a place to fill and theirs the mission. JJruv .hrjixftlj2rlulthy etrugglcr-vrrr- til, bruised and bleeding by the drift wood of ur.fortuitous circum stances, they were sucked into the voracious, insatiate maw of the whirlpool of failure. It is not the valedictorian to his college class that builds the city for sometimes the failing echo of the applause, called forth by his graduating ad dress, is his only funeral dirge. Reminding it of the fact that the binding is not always a correct criterion of the volume's contents we will pass over the mean, insinua ting inuendoes leveled us and wish The Yuma Advertiser a bon voyage. "Fools rush in where angeles fear to tread." Knowing how treach erous the stream, we did what we could to sta7 their 'prentice hand but now the bont is launched it lies not with us to stave it in . And no less well do we wish The Yuma Sun . "Sin. F. S. Ketchuai our ener getic and experienced mining friend who last year bonded the Picacho mines is again in town and at this time it is well to state that the re ports coming to us from that dis trict fully indicate hie good judg ment in securing them. Far the past three or four months Senator Dorsey and the Denver Syndicate have been sinking shafts on, and crus.i cutting the veins with very flattering results which will soon cause the erection of large stamp mills. The first payment for the mines has been made and the representa tions of the Syndicate seem well pleased. Yuma is Picacho's, natural base of supplies and her quickening pulse is already beatingin harmony with the increased activity at the mines. Let us welcome and en- coura-- all good mining men who help to bring our rich, hidden re sources to the knowledge of the commercial world.
