Our Congressional Friends.
Within a span of but a few
months our Sunshine Kingdom
has bi'ttn visited by two parties
ol national lawmakers: officially
by. senators and unoDicially by
congressmen. Individually con
sidered all were men of affairs,
of business and of politics. Pol
itically considered the two par
ties, on the vital question of
Arizona statehood, in connection
with which the respective visits
were made, are diametrically op-
posed, each to the other.
The "grave and reverend''
senators, ere ever wheel turned
under them.had judged the ques
tion at issue and had decided
against us. Their trip was a
mockery, and their questious,
but few in number, were care
fully designed to effect replies
emphasizing our faults and fail
ings, not to bring to light our
virtues. Farcical to the extreme
it served its purpose, inasmuch
as its members could say in de
bate and conference: "I have
seen with mine eyes and have
heard with mine ears."
The second party, the direct
representatives of the throbbing
heart of American manhood,
have but just left the border of
our territory. That their stay
within our boundaries rivalled
in point of brevity that of their
bretheren of the toga is to be
regretted, since it gives no more
stable foundation upon which to
build an argument or base con
vincing pleas in dtb ite than did
the senatorial tour. But, its
members are friends, tried and
true in deeds and words. Their
glasses were rose tinted and
their minds were open to receive
all the good that could be heard,
while. they forgot that we could
he aught but Americans of Am
ericans. However brief their stay with
in our borders each member of
the party has seen much of in
terest and learned much of value
relative to our people, our re
sources and our possibilities, and
with even greater confidence and
renewed assurance can they ac
cept the gage of battle in our
behalf in the national forum, for
they, also, have "seen with their
eyes and have heard with their
While our senatorial enemies
were enabled to exercise their
jaundiced eyes and minds at the
expense of the public, whom they
wantonly betrayed, to one man
alone, as a private citizen, is due
the credit for the visit of our
friends. The public will readily
note and appreciate the differ
ence. To William R. Hearst, the cit
izen, congressman for the elev
enth district of New York and"
leading exponent of the journal
ism that does things, is due the
thanks of all loyal Arizonans.
Arizona School Law.
The Arizona school law con
tains the following provisions:
Section 103 makes it the duty
of the clerk of each school to
furnish the sheriff, constable,
city marshal or other peace offi
cer with a list of children who
are not in attendance at the
schools of the precinct, and any
district clerk failing to furnish
such list is guilty of a misde
meanor. Section 104 makes it a misde
meanor if any deputy sheriff, con
stable or city marshal shall neg
lect to enforce these sections of
the law, and makes their con
viction a subject of penalty more
severe than all the others, the
amount of tine upon conviction
being 50.

California Divorces.
The Supreme Court of Cali
fornia has recently rendered a
decision that the divorce law
passed by the last legislature of
that state is constitutional. The
fact that numerous cases have
been passed upon in the lower
courts and in which the law was
held to be unconstitutional, cre
ated a popular belief that the
law was invalid and of no force,
and many divorced parties have
married again. By the decision
of the supreme court such mar
riages are void. The ' law pro
vides that a final decree of di
vorce shall not be granted until
one year after the granting of a
preliminary interlocutory decree.

The last annual report of
tJnited States Pension CommTs
sioner Ware, which covers the
year ending June 30, 1903: shows
some interesting facts. Last
year the number of persons on
the pension rolls exceeded 1,000,
000, the highest number reached
being 1,000,732. That was Sep
tember 30, 1902.
On July 1 of this year the
number was 996,545, and the
opinion is expressed by the com
missioner that the million mark
will not be again reached.
The pension disbursements
reached the highest point in
1893, when 915(5,012 pensioners
were paid $150,9015,032.
. Last year, with 27,000 less
names on the rolls, the amount
disbursed was $137,759,(553, a re
duction of $19,14(5,985. Prom
July 1, 1865, to June 30, 1903, a
period of thirty-eight years, the
aggregate paid on account of
pensions was 3,037,826,081,
which includes 95,647,935 for
cost of maintaining the pension
About two-thirds of the entire
number of pensioners are located
in ten states and these a. re paid
nearly two-thirds of the aggre
gate disbursed. These ten states
stand in the following order with
regard to number of pensioners
and amounts paid:

Now that pomegranates are ripe,
says an exchange, it is well to caution
people regarding- the danger to their
teeth. The Kjmegranate is a delicious
fruit, and healthful: but the outer cov-
ering or rind contains an acid that at-
I tacks the enamel on teeth and unless
r I removed at once will cause discolora-
! tion and speedy decay. Children are
! liable to bite into the rind unless fre-
quently reminded of the danger of m ch
, i act. It is a safe plan for grown people
to wash their teeth after eating pome
granates, as too much care cannot be
exercised if one would protect his grind
ers from an acid which the dentists say
is a deadly enemv to enamel.
