McEOLEY. -. - Of Ohio tfc A. HOBART - Of New Jersey The Holbrook Argus, edited by iC.' F. Bante, was sold last week to iSeBosier & Burbage. If you -don't believe the Sen ttttel is the "Official" raaner of Yuma County, why just compare &3 advertising columns with the Sunrs At the meeting of the Repub lican party at Chicago, Ills., on luly 22nd, for the purpose o organizing and mapping out i western campaign, J. W. Dorring ion, was the only person present from the Pacific coast. Every day W. J. Brvan, the nominee of the Democratic part' lor President, is losing ground in . the State of Nebraska, his home and it is generally conceded by his most enthusiastic Democratic ad mirers that he will not he able to carry it at the coming election in November. It is well-known ihroughtout the state ot Nebraska that all there is to W. J. Br3Tan 5s his "Jaw." Just 24 hours after Watson had been nominated for Vice-President af the United States by the People's Party, the Sun issued a 2x3 inch extra edition informing our citizens of the same. Every man, woman and child in Yuma were conversant of the fact 12 hours before. Yet this Rip Van Winkle editor of the Sun has the unmitigated gall to come out and say, his jerk-water-sheet, is newsy and enterprising. If indications are worth any thing San- Diego is about to become the terminus of a great Trans-Pacific Japanese Steamship line. That accounts for the activity in certain railroad circless looking to the construction of one of the several roads that have long been pointed towards San Diego. That it will not be long after the steam ship line is assured that a road will be constructed from Yuma to San Diego goes without saying, and that there will soon be a new trans continental route by way of this valley is beyond doubt. Phoenix Herald: The total number of electors, as fixed by the Constitution, is equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives in Congress. There are 357 members in the House of Renresentatives and the Senate has a membership of 90. The total number of electorors is therefore 447, and 224 votes con stitute a majority of the electoral college. Candidates for President and Vice-President must there fore receive not less than 224 votes in order to be elected. Supporters of the respective tickets can figure out tbo probable results to their liking. In a recent issue of the Pomona Times we find the following kind and truthful remarks about Ari zona and her citizens. Arizona has been favored with copious rains for a month past, and the people rejoice. They have suf fered from drouths for several years hut have all the time steadily prospered. It is a high testimony to the value of that great territory that it has steadily, for 20 years increased in population and wealth It has contended with hostile In dians, unfriendly military com manders, drouths and other ob stacles, but it has never ceased to ironno in all the incidents of iVX V t. 4 Civilization as well as in wealth and neonle. Its inhabitants de- T L serve to succeed. Most of them have worked hard and economized and endured many hardships in eident to frontier life. They have been grossly misrepresented by Intelligent people who professed to e righteous but who neither knew srr wore willing to lejirn. th fctz HOW ST. PETER TREATS A. BOLTER. An exchange says : A bolter dream ed ftdream. He was asked by St. Peter when he applied for admission, who he was: "I am a bolter," he proudly replied. "Then you are in tho wrong place," said St. Peter, as he slammed the crate: "we have no room up here for men who are better than their party." After severval weeks devoted to paving his wall to bolt the Repub lican party, Editor Brown ot the Sim made his debut last Friday as a full fledged Democrat. It was no surprise to our people to see at the head of the editional columns of the Sun the names of Bryan & Sewall. the standard bearers of the r i- i. ur u informed though that editor t r- Brown still claims to be a Repub- llCail. In answer to some of the political twaddle of our contemporary we will say that the present editor's duty on the Sentinel is to chronicle local events and set forth the man' wonderful resources of Yuma coun ty both agricultural and mineral. We have nothing to do with the political department of the- Sen tinel. On the return of Mr. Dor- rinston. the editor-in-chief of the vacation in the eastern world, we have no hesitenancy in saying, Corporal Brown, that your ques- As an example of what can be ac tions will be answered, complished in an agricultural way, Now, in conclusion, during the absence of the Sentinel'r editor j. c c . you will confer-a favor or practicing what you preach, and by so dointr you will fill your columns with the resources of Yuma county instead of school boy political slush. There are no laggards among Republican newspapers of Arizona in supporting McKinley and the St Louis platform. Every Repub lican weekly, which comprises the Sulphur Valley News, the Yuma Sentinel, Coconino. Sun, Holbrook Argus, and the Republican dailies and their weeklies, the Tucson Citizen, the Phoenix Herald, and the Prescott Journal-Miner, all stand pat amidst the Demo-pop roar for "free silver" without limit, without warrant, without business invitation, without good sound judgment. There is no Republi can paper in the Territory but stands by the National Republican ticket. Phoenix Herald. The 50th Anniversary Number of the Scientific American, New York, just out, is a really handsome and valuable publication of 72 pages.
