The schoolma'am is the guid

takes the little bantling fresh
from the home nest, full of his
pouts, his pets and his passions,
ungovernable in manyv cases, a
rampant, riotous little wretch
whose own mother often admits
she sends him to school purpose1

A communication to the legis
lature was read from the assist
ant secretary of state at "Wash
ington concerning the annexa
tion to the United States of the
strip of land between uma and
Mexico, now subject to irriga
tion under. the Laguna dam. The
"Washington office stated that it
would be impossible to get this
strip from Mexipo; that the
Mexican constitution was against
concession of lands to foreign
countries; that the matter had
been thrashed out between the
two governments years before;
that this country wanted to get
hold of Lower California at one
time and could not -tua,ke the
purchase; that it had afterwards
attempted.'fo get a coaling sta

but had failed, etc. The commu

A newspaper, if it has any
brauis, conscience and muscle
back of it, must continually de
cide between doing its duty and
injuring its pocket. In any po
sition but that of an editor the
public is able to separate the in
dividual from the collective-citizen.
But if an editor does not
please them, it's at his pockets
they aim. Thus it is the news
papers learn who their friends
are. The man who reads the
newspaper and admires it all the
year round, yet gives his busi
ness support to some other con
cern, whose whose principles or
the actions pf its editor he de
tests, is not a. friend to the form
er newspaper. Admiration alone
will notrrun a newspaper.' There
are too many men who expect
sin editor to slave in defense of
their pet notions and hobbies,
advocate their views against the
strongest opposition, and coolly
withhold their business support
by which alone, a country news
paper can live.
Talk about a paper having a
public doty to perform, "and an
editor having to work for his
principles, is cheap when others
stand back and extend a luke

n ARK'S SWAN SONQ.
Mark Smith's last statehood
speech was a masterpiece of elo
quence, and that he was given an
ovction in congress at its conclu
sion was not remarkable. What
ever may be said against Arizo

ho is -at least a polished orator
and an eloquont one. But Mark

If a woman is strong ond healthy !n a womanly way, moth

in the fact that the many women suffer from weakness and

If nothing worse, it was bad
taste for the ex-delegate to refer
to his financial condition and the
implication that it was due to his
struggle for Arizona, even if it
were true. But there is a vague
suspicion that Mark has feather
ed a fair sized nest in the most
fertile agricultural section of the
famous Blue Grass state, and
that he will retire to it in the

of statehood and an opportunity
of going before the people of the

Mark may hot retire with a
big wad, but he has had a good
time with a long run for his
money and a minimum of work.
He has euoyed the relaxation
and pleasures of yearly fishing
trips, in compa.nywrith agreeable
companions: and recuperation
visits at popular resorts. He
has been lionized, canonized and
beatified by his admirers and his
party press, and it is difficult, in
view of all this, to conceive of
him retiring to private life with

ical flight, his swan song, as it
were, it is interesting to note
that since its appearance in the
Congressional Record, our great

been expurgated in at least one
instance, that one being where
in his-speech he referred to 'my'
people, which has fince been
changed by the Arizona papers
to 'the' people. But that's of no;

Only recentl y President Roose
velt hastily appointed a commis
sion to make a report looking to
the reorganizatipn of the navy
department; but' this, like many
other of the Rooseveltian poli
cies, has been bequeathed to the
man who is expected to carry
out the. Roosevelt ideals. The
report has been handed in and
it looks well. The plan appears
to be to make the secretary the
real head of the navy depart
ment, equal to the First Lord of
the Admiralty, as it is in the
British estaolishment. The plan
further looks to the distribution
of the work of the department
among five divisions, three con-
trolled by 'officers of the navy, j
one by the first assistant sereta-i
ry and a fifth by an expert tech-!
nologist. The effect of the plan
would be to establish in the navy
a "general staff" similar to that

The annual value of poultry
and eggs sold is more than that
of the silver, gold and pig iron
produced. There is millions of
money in poultry and eggs, and
but small capital required. The
annual import of eggs in En

dozen, and into the United States
17,000,000 dozen a year. Here
is an -industry in which the de

City and County Clash Over Enforce"
ment of Anti-Gambling Law
At Globe the city marshal
undertook to enforce the new
anti-gambling law, but was
stopped by the district attorney,
who notified the marshal that the
enforcement of this law was not
incumbent upon him but was the
duty of the sheriff of the county.
The matter was referred to Judge
Nave, who is reported to have
"This law does not concern
the city, bntis the law and must
be enforced. I am told that
there is some gamblinggoing on,
Mr. Shute. If it is necessary we
will remove both of the justices
of the peace; we will remove the
sheriff; we will remove the dis
trict attorney, but we will eng
force the law. Bring the cases
before me and I will try them as
a justice of the peace, ..if neces
sary, it you hear of anyone who
knows of any gambling game
going on, Mr. Shute, make them

explains the situation there. It

Senator Teller of Colorado has
served the longest term in the
senate of any retiring senator
or since 1876. He resigned in
1882 to enter the cabinet of Pres
ident Arthur, but was re elected
1903 as a democrat, with which
party he has since stood. Among
conspicuous retiring senators is
Piatt of New York, who, it will
be remembered, resigned with
Roscoe Conkling in 1881, since
which time "Me Too" Piatt has
been incessantly used by his de
tractors. Senator Foraker, wnose
recent turbulent career is fresh

served twelve years. Other sen
