What is eo raro ns a day in December
in Arizona ?
Tho California Bard's discordant
uoto grates on Arizona's sonsibilitios.
Tho president iu his message to congress
is most eloquent in what hu does
Christmas is near at hand. If von
doubt it observe tho increased
at tho Sunday schools.
There was tho usual abundance of
floral tributes at tho opening of con
cress. No matter how tho election
rocs, tho florist is suro to prosper.
Alas, tho resolution to liberally remember
our friends on Christmas is
sioklied o'er with tho palo cast of tho
thought that taxes mustbo paid by
Tho actual tight iu tho senate oxer
tho omnibus bill began yesterday, it
prom.sos to be a stubborn coutot,
with tho chances against tho admission
of Arizona ami Now Mexico.
From 1SS3 to 1000, inolusivo, Arizona
produced 1,007, 192, 030 pounds
of copper, worth, taking tho avorago
price per pound during thoso eighteen
years, nearly 112,000.000.
If Utah wants that portiou of Arizona
lying north of tho Colorada river,
perhnps sho would be willing to pay a
fair consideration for it. Tho territory
in question is so iolated by physical
barriers that it can never bo of any
real valuo to us.
The Arizoua Dullotiu advocates a
territorial poor farm to be located in
Graham county, while tho Jlhbeo Review
mildly opposes the proposition.
As our friends, tho Kellys, own both
papors, it looks as though tboy ought
to got togethor on this momentous
Tho death of Thomas IJ. Reed is tho
cause of genuine and widespread re-grot,
and is rightly regarded as a national
loss. Ho was a man of great intellectual,
as well as physical, stature.
Ho was, moreover, God's noblest
work an honest man,
It looks as thongh thoro is to bo a
Parker-presidential boom in Now
York. Judge Parker, according to all
accounts, is worthy of tho very high
esteem in which ho is held, and would
rnako an ideal prctidcutial candidato
for tho domocraoy to tako up.
To tho much lower prices of copper
during tho current year may in a
mcasuro bo ascribed tho heavy foreign
demand, copper exports having increased
cloven million dolhrs ;n the
nino months ended with September,
1902, as compared with tho corresponding
monthes of 1901.
Tho statehood contention has reached
tho stago of crimination aud recrimination
betweon tho politicians and
their wind-jamming organs. Tho fact
remaius, however, that Mark Smith
has dono moro for statehood for
than all other forces combined,
aud if tho territory is not admitted tho
republican senators will bo solely responsible
for tho failure.
It is to tho credit of tho press of tho
country that it gives littlo, if any, encouragement
to the movement to prevent
tho seating of Reed Smoot, tho
Mormon apostle, as United States senator
from Utah. About tho only effect
of tho Utah ministerial association's
protest is to remind us that religious
iutolcranco is about as provalcnt now
as it was threo or four hundred years
ago. Tho modern church lacks only
tho power, not tho will, to persecute
dissentors for opinion's sake.
Tho independent operators will, wo
think, regret thoir opposition to a private
settlement of tho authracito controversy,
since tho facts boiug brought
out before the commission seem to
strongly support tho contention of the
minors. Whilo tho operators havo acted
foolwbly, wo think, yet it is fortunate,
sinco in tho interest of tho
that the hearings before tho anthracite
commission were allowed to
continue. There are many points upon
which tho public is eager to be en
lightened, that a private settlement
would havo left iu obscurity,
"Tho mineral industry is certainly
playing a very important part in the
commercial aud industrial eLtorpiises
of tho world," says tho Western Min
ing World. "This interest is
wido and throbs with tho pulse of progress
iu all countries. Tho pick and
spado, and drill, are to be found every
where whore mineral resources justify
their uso. In this direction tho United
States has at present a foromost place,
both iu richness of resource aud magnitude
of enterprise. Iu gold, silver,
lead, iron, coal aud copper, the exploit
atious of a century have been magnifi
cent iu scope aud results."
Senator Gallinger has introduced iu
the eeuato a joint resolution providing
limited statehood for tho District of Columbia.
It provides, by mcaus of a
constitutional amoudmout, that tho district
shall bo considered a state so far,
and only so far, as shall give it
ns such iu the seuate, the
house aud tho electoral college. There
are in tho district nearly iSJO.000 peo
ple, making a population greater than
iu mauy of tho states, aud which will
continue to rapidly increase, and yet
tlteso people, located at the vory fountain-head
of tho republic, are boiug
taxed without n osligo of representation,
a principle iu opposition to which
thu country fought and along which
issue it won its independence. The
demand of tho District of Columbia is
nltoguther reasonable and there should
be no opposition to it.
For Change of JuJIcl.il District.
Tho Tombstone Prospector favors a
rearraugeuisut of the judioml dtstriot
that would place Coohiie, Graham aud
Gila iu ouo dint riot, and locate tho
United States court at 'tombstone.
While suoh uu arrangement would be
better than the prcsuut one for the
people of Gila aud liiaham counties,
it could be improved by tlxiug tha fed-oral
court at Solomouville, which
would be the canter of the district.
Howeuu, iu the event of the early division
of (indium county, which uow
seems probable, the natural arrangement
of a new judicial distnet would
include Gila, Graham aud its offspring.
Wo agree with the Bulletin that the
location of the federal court of the
second judicial district at Ploreuco is
an injustice to of the people
of the district, and that "there is
no otter reason for holding the federal
conrt at Flcrence than the personal
convenience of the presiding judge.
The greater part of the business of that
court comes from Graham and Gila
counties and tho expense of 'the court
must necessarily be much larger at
Floreuco than it woald be at either
Globe or Solomonville."
It. S. Maolay, of Troy, who is a can
didato for chief clerk of the legislative
assembly, ia strongly supported by tho
Florence1 .Blade, aud we fnlly eudorso
what that paper says of him in the
following oxcerpt : "Air. Maolay has
served ono term in the legislature ns
assistant chief clerk and during tho
greater part of the term discharged tho
duties of tho chief clork, a work for
which ho is exceptionally woll
both by practical experience and
natural ability. Ho had previously
tilled other legislative clerkships and
his work was faultless. Mr. Maolay is
far nbovo tho average man iu natural
ability, is well educated aud has devoted
his lifo to clerical work. Uo is familiar
with ovory detail of tho routine work
of a legislative body, a master of tho
art of keeping minutes of legislative
proceedings, is a splendid and rapid
pennuu, possesses a good voico and is
a good reader, in fact possesses, to a
marked degree, every natural and ac
quired accomplishment necessary to
rnako an ideal chiof clerk."
It pays miners and prospectors to
ndvortru and talk about tho resources
aud probabilities of the sections m
which thoy tiro directly interested. If
a mining district is worth anything at
all, it is worth talking about, worth
keeping boforo tho public, worth ills-
ensaiug in print. If it has nothing to
recommend it, if there aro nothing but
a few barren prospect holes there, the
sooner the minor who is blowing m his
money gets out tho better. But if a
district has merit and can show up
good mineral and encouraging pros-pi
cts, tho mon who aro interested
there should not hesitate to tell what
they know about it. They should get
their district before tho public eyo
Intelligent newspaper discussion of a
mining section attracts attention, leads
investigators to examine personally
tho mines of tho district, and, if it
proves satisfactory, then investment
1 lie Proper Thing to Do.
Our suggOBtiou that tho few counties
burdened with indigents establish and
maintain a poor farm jointly, appears
to have met with approval.
Tho Tombstouo Prospector advocates
establishing a poor farm on tho
tho San Pedro, between St, David and
Benson, to bo maintained by tho counties
of Cochise, Pima aud Santa Cruz,
and tho Bisbco Review and Nogalcs
Oasis both endorse tho proposition
Perhaps if tho SoIouiouvrIIo Bulletin
would exert its iuflnence.Graham county
might bo admitted to the combination.
Tho proposition is certainly much
fairer than to establish a territorial institution
aud compel counties that
would derive little, if nny bouellt, to
help support it.
