It is bullet riven and war worn, but it represents the glory and patriotism of Arizona's soldier boys and the loyalty and liberty loving propensities of the women of Phoenix. The flag will be in- closed in a glass case ana win sleep j undisturbed till the voice of the nation reaches Arizona in a call for men to carry the country's flag to the Orient. P. G.

The watch is divided into two shifts each working eight hours. The condemned men have not lost hope and seem to keep up well un der the intense -strain. What they will do or how they will act when the last hope is gone and they are face to face with inevitable death a.mot be gues:ed. Thus far they have asked for no religious consolation and no clergy man has visited them. They seem ment and save their necks from the noose. Citizen. The sultan of Turkey should put the Chinese situation in his chibouk and smoke it. . The silence in Pekin can be cut I with a knife. Due clamor at Shan?- hfti rmnld nrotitoLhl v he nared down & ' The news from China demon, strates Jhat in the matter of first class lying the Chinaman is not much behind the Zulu. With a Populist head and a plucked tail, it will be hard to con vince the country this fall that the Democratic rooster is not a capon. Hoodlums in tnis country who at tack Chinamen are no better than "Boxers" in China and they ought to be Dunished to the full extent of Altgeld says that "Roosevelt has strutted himself to death." The difference with Altgeld is he is too dead to strut and always lacked brains to superintend the operation. Adlai Stevenson is the missing link between Cleveland and Bryan and as such should claim attention from the political antheopologist. He has been the sponge carrier for both. Automobiles can be propelled at a cost of two cents per mile by liquid air. What a wonderful source of power Bryan would be if his 16 to 1 speeches could be converted from the original wind into liquid air. With McKicley on the elephant and Teddy on the mustang almost any kind of a race may result Sweepstakes are posted and Bryan and his mule and Adlai and his turtle are especially challenged. The "yellow" newspapers rush into prominence again through the Chinese trouble. Massacre after massacre has been painted in lurid and yellow tints. But then the imperial color in China is yellow. William of Lincoln, beware of the daj', when William of Canton in battle array, goes after thy scalp in a second affray, and brings home thy hide in the twilight gray and again on the back fence hides it awav. Russia gets into the international chess game in China early in the day for a country whose ruler has announced that he is not out for conquest and whose universal peace conference has so recently attracted attention. The index finger of Republican prosperity points with pride to the fact that under the Dingley tariff. the customs .re venue has risen from $149,000,000 to $244,000,000 a year. The Democraticindex finger of scorn -has disappeared. Ever' day brings the report of one or more lynchings somewhere in the United States, generally in the south and the victim a negro. The Chinese boxer can place his thumb' on his nose, twiddle his fingers and say "you're another." The Yankees of the east and the Yankees of the west made a rally to gether at Tien Tsin and assisted largely in the capture of the city. On the Japanese and Americans de pends largely the settlement of the great eastern question. Li Hung Chang and his peacock feathers are in Peking. It remains to be seen whether the "Grand Old Man" of China can bring order out of chaos. Perhaps the Boxers may be able to say "you could have knocked me down with a feather." In addition to following trade Old Glory now follows the Ameri can citizen all over the world. There are American citizens shut up in Pekin in danger of massacre. Old Glory is on the way there and if the other flags halt Old Glory will go it alone. Admiral Dewey is taking the fever of unrest now and wants to take command of a war vessel again. There is where he can be emperor, king or czar and the people will heartily applaud. It's a shame the hero fell into the hands of political huoksters and society fools.
