Official Paper of Yuma County THE FOURTH OF JULY. The nation's birthday was duly celebrated throughout the county. Fortuna did herself prouckm that day and the people of Yuma and the Colorado river valley celebrated the day with a big picnic at the Tulle Laguna. The program of the day's proceedings will be found in another column. Every American citizen's heart beats with stimulated pride and patriotism on that day. We looked hrough the smoke and noise of the fireworks and saw a vision of our country's history. Every small incident chronicled in our history seems to be more interesting to the American heart than the great his torical events of international im portance. Pocahontas and Captain John Smith interests us more than nionrmfr nnrl Mnrk Antonv. The courtship of Miles Standish seems of more importance than the signm of Magna Charter. The ride of Paul Revere is more wonderful than the victories won at Runnymede. Pink ney's famous phrase of "millions for defense but not one cent lor tribute," is greater than the Edict of Nantes. Our path and onward march has been one of glory. As we looked through the din and smoke we saw a proud and in domitable people resent oppression andfsaw the first blood flow at Lex ineton in defense of their freedom, and great events of that struggle arose before us. We saw a party of patriots braveithan ever Sparta bred assembled together and pro mulgating the Declaration of In pnonrJence and hurlme a defi in the teeth of the mightiest nation on earth. On that memorable 4th of July a new nation was born. We Tionrrf the mishtv and magic voice of Patrick Henry urging the colo nists to deeds of valor and heard "Kim CSV "tiive me liberty or give m, Hinf.h " Wd heard brave old Ben Franklin arise to the occasion and say, "Gentlemen we must all hang together or most assuredly we'll all hang separately." We heard the urchin shouting" Ring! g'randpa,ring!"and we heard the old liberty bell ring out for joy vibrat ing with the tones of freedom. We saw the patriots gathering at Lex ington and Concord and Marathon paled into insignificance. We saw again the sanguinary battle of Bun ker Hill, where when the smoke of battle lifted "there lay the Redcoats in windrows like a mower rakes his hay," and Thermopelae lost some of its glory. We heard old John Stark say "There's the Redcoats boys, we beat them today or Molly Stark's a widow," and forsooth he did beat them. We suffered again with Washington at Valley Forge and fought again with Marion's men. We went with Ethan Allen to Ticsnderoga and heard bim thunder 'Surrender!" "In the name of who?" came the startled query. "In the name of God and the Continen tal Congress!" We heard Hale repeat, "The only regret I have is that I have not nine lives to give to my country," and then died for America. Each scene and incident of that unparalleled conflict held us spell bound until we reached the climax at Yorktown and we were a free and independent nation. Eng land had boasted of being mistress of the seas and Paul Jones robbed her of that glory; and her haughty generals, who had come to com mand the Hessians against us, were made to stoop their lordly crests of pride. We love to muse on the history of our national existence. We love to light again the battle of New Orleans with A.dy Jackson. W(-like-to get with Perry and Lawrence on Like Erie and see the signal flying, "Don't give up the ship," imd read .'lguiii Perry's famous dis jHUch, "We have met the enemy end they are ours." We likelo pace the hails of congress with Webster, Calhonn and Clay, and -ilh Davy Crockett to Texas. civil war. Let us wipe away a tear and pass over the incardine fields of that dreadful mistake. It this bravery pitted against valer. It was home and country at war. The valorous Southerners thought they fought for the right and in the light of recent events wo can press them to our heart. The blood of the Yankee's heir and the rebel's son mingled on San Juan hill. Rebels and Yankees have marched side by side for the glory of the union, and rebel generals have led Yankee soldiers to fame. We are proud of the achievements of America, but no period is brighter than the past year. We could celebrate the Fourth with ardor. We have taken our stand at the head of nations and let us maintain our position. In olden times it was said to be a Roman was greater than a king and let it be said that he who claims the protection of the Stars and Stripes is greater than all kings or kingdoms. Nations, like individuals, live and die, and is it not better to live glori ously and die in a blaze of splendor than to live a forsaken life and die an ignoble death? Let us reach out; let us expand; let us support McKinley. Egypt was once great and glorious but is now a desert waste the owls hoot in the ruins of Babylon and Nineveh; the .empire of " Cyrus and Xerxes is no more; the existence of Trnv is doubted: the sieht of Carthage is obliserated; the glory that was Rome and the grandeur that was Greece is faded, and history will repeat itself, but let us be great while we exist. Smaller nations and peoples have been absorbed and forgotten and if we lie dormant and pursue a doctrine of anti-expansion ours will be their fate. WILD CAT SCHEMES. In reference to his letter of warn ing against investment in wildcat mining schemes, Governor Murphy said to a reporter that he felt it to be his duty to invite the attention of the general public to the manner in which the people of eastern com munitieK aie being gulled at the expense of Arizona. Pamphlets and advertisements containing the grossest misrepresentations are be ing circulated broadcast in cities, villages and farming towns of the eastern states and Canada, and shares of worthless stock are being sold to ail classes of people. He says it amounts in many cases -to taking bread fromchildren'smouths, as the clerks, stenographers and servants, farmers, laborers, etc., are the principal sufferers, and they cannot afford to be the victims of confidence sharps As a rule peo ple who are duped into losing their money by investment in such trans parent humbugs do not deserve any sympathy, but men of easy fortune are rarely caught, for before they invest large sums they generally investigate carefully; it is the small investors of limited means, in most cases dependent upon meager sala ries, who suffer most. Some of the companies engaged in this nefarious business have partially developed prospects, show ing just ore enough to give coloring to their representations. They are usually more to be feared than those who have absolutely nothing to show, as they are better able to de ceive the public. Arizona has been selected as a fruitful field for these sharks, and the injury to the legi timate mining interests ot the terri tory suffer direct loss, as the stock is not sold in Arizona, but the blow to honest mining is more expensive to the territory's good name and progress than can be estimated. Phoenix Daily Herald, June 22nd, 1899. Ox Monday, at the county hos pital. Win. Lewis, aged 78 years and Mrs. Bennett, aged 41 years, the Prescott Courier says, were united in the bonds of matrimony and received the congratulations of numerous friends. Among the wedding presents was a rocking chair. The happy couple immedia tely embarked on a two-horse wagon bound for the Lewis mansion and ranch on Willow creek. The bride occupied the rocking chair, as also did the groom. It was a case of love at first flight, as the couple had been acquainted only one short week. Mr. Lewis is a remarkably vigorous and active man ot his years, and has the best wishes of all who know him, in his new venture. Yuma is getting to be quite aj summer resort for sweltering Pboe- j A Farewell Banquet. The citizens of Yuma together with the brother Elks and fellowwork men last night tendered a banquet to H. W. Eilbert and E. E. Sirrine. Mr. Filbert left this morning to assume his duties as station agent at Davis Junction and Mr. Sirrine is the new agent at this point. Thirty or forty entlemen were present and all made short speeches in wishing Mr. Eilbert success and regretting his departure and welcoming Mr. Sirrine to Yuma. Mr. Sirrine made a short speech in which he said he would use his efforts in building up this community so long as his duties would keep him in our midst. Mr. Filbert said that he re gretted to sever the ties of friendship which had been formed during his stay but that circumstances over which he had no control took him away. Mr. Filbert has been in Yuma about twenty mouths and during that time has ever worked for the advance ment of Yuma. The citizens of Yuma aud the railroad men all speak in the highest terms of Mr. Filbert and it is a matter of general regret that he is called away. However, we wish him success. The following resolutions have been drafted: Yuma, Ari ona, July 7, 1899. At a mass meeting of the Southern Pacific Company rail road employes, and the citizen of Yuma, held in the A. 0. U. W. hall this date, a commit tee was appointed to- draft resolutions of respect and of the high esteom in which Mr. H. W. Fill ert hs been held by the people of Yuma, during his three years residence at this place. As agent of the S. P. Co., his duties have brought him into close relations with all of the business men of Yuma and they have found him at all times honest, courteous and obliging, and in the words of his subordinates "Work under him has been made a pleasure." While the business of the office has been conducted by him in a manner reflecting great credit both to himself and the Company he represents, and entirely to the satisfaction of the patrons of the road. While rejoicing in the promotion that comes to so worthy a man, the people can not but feel the loss of Mr. Filbert and his family, and their sincere good wishes go with them to their new home. J. H, Shanssey, E. L. Ewing, P. G. Cot ter, Committee. MEASURED BY RESULTS. For the fiscal year ending July 1 the customs revenues have aggre gated upward of $390,000,000. Whate have the Free-Trade malig ners of the Dingley law to say to this? They declared that as a revenue producer the law had prov ed to be a failure, and would only breed deficits Yet this same law has proved to be by $30,000,000 more productive of revenue than was the law which preceded it, even though the latter had in its final months the aid of an immense flood of anticipatory importations. Moreover, the Dingley act yields for the fiscal year just closed a larger amount of revenue than the McKinley act of 1890 yielded in its best year, and, as the New Yock "Tribune"" points out, a little more than was calculated upon as the amount sufficient, with the internal taxes then in force, to cover ordinary expenditures of the Government. The credit due to its framers is all the greater because they were com pelled to make their estimates in the face of a depression of trade and industries which, had it continued, would have rendered satisfactory results impossible. But they had full faith that -a sound Protective law would promptly restore pros perity without any of the monetary changes so persistently urged, and the result proves that they were not in error. Measured by its results the Ding ley bill will be assigned to a place in history as one of the wisest, best conceived and most wide)' bene ficial enactments ever placed upon the statute books of an' country. Mit. McKinley seems to have been a very excellent "advance agent" for Prosperity. Prosperity has made millions of dollars for the residents of this good country since we left behind us those "four more years of clover" of which the Demo crats sang so loudly during the Cleveland campaign.
