A subscription has been started in i;ew Tork to purchase a $50,000 an caity for Gen. Fremont. Tha't scene in the Prescott Court room v?as a disgrace to the whole Territory and every man, woman and ciild ia it. The ontire Pacific coast congres sional delegation have favorably in dorsed the propositcn to hold a .World's Fair at San Francisco in -JKJ7.

The bill should never :be allowed to pass while polygamy holdq its sway in that Territory. Senator Miller, of California, has been nonored with the chairmanship of the Committee on Foreign Eola tions, one of the moat important of the Senate committees.

Our citizens won't forget the weeks and months in at we were denied mail facilities through the machinations of tho ?' Prscott postmaster. The Yuma Sentinel ia deserving of a. good deal of credit for its efforts to ihave the Colorado river stocked with dbad and other table fish. We see ' -so reason why this should not be done at once, and join with tho Sen tinel in urging the matter on the Arizona Fish Commission, We, in comiaoa with most of the residents of Mohave county, would appreciate a little fresh fish once in a while, a luxury we have hitherto been debar red from. The recent cutting and shooting sicrape m the Distriot Court at Pres et cannot but be muoh deplored by he whole Territory. Such scenes of bloodshed taking place in our verv Court rooms will continue to tarnish He fair fame of our Territory and ocip to maintain the reputation of 'awiessnesa which it haosolong held. The high official position and . aigh . -standing of the. partici pants only makes the matter so much She worse and should make their -juntahment the more severe. Now -hat the Grand -Jury have taken the matter ia hand, wo hope that tho larties who are to blame in this dis racaful affair will be punished to -ho. fullest extent of the law, and it is - nlyby so doing that the stigma which las fallen on tho courts of the Ter ritory can bo removed. It is to be aoped that another similar affair may Zpovjjrjsccnr again.iu a court of jus co m Arizona. - The present school House is a ' dia prCB to a lown the size of Mineral Park. Neither the pupils nor the ftsrthpr have room to move and are jo crowded as to be much inconven ienced. We don't know what our Board of Trustees are thinking about to coop up twenty-nve children in uoh a miserable hole. Now that the ioors and windows have to be closed on account of the cold weather the itmosphero in the school room is positively unhealthy, and cannot help .-fttising. sickness and disease among children, in view or thu fact viah tho number of scholars is rapidly ii. creasing wo insist that tne matter j:-ild be attended to at once. If L-e School Trustees don't remedy it, urher by building a now school house , e-Iarging the eld ono, wo hpe - citizbua cf tho town will.

Tho California delegation in Con gress have decided to ask for an ap propriation of one million dollars for tho purpose of building a new post office in San Francisco. If Pat Hamilton's description of the other counties in this territory a as inaccurate as that of Mohave, then his Resources of Arizona falls very far short of being what tho Legislature intended it. The Kepublican national conven- dav, Juno 3, 1884, at 12 o'clocnoon, for tho nomination of candidates to be supported for president and vice- president at the next election, by tne republican party.

This may be all very well for Yavapai pai county, but we in Mohave preler to'circulate our 'own "Resources" of which we have enough to fill a book larger than Pat Hamilton's. Wanted, another judge to sit upon the Supreme bench of this Territory. As it is now, our three judges are overworked; but, the worst com plaint our people have is that the same three judges who try all cases in districts courts, have when appeals are taken, to decide cases previously tried by them. This state of affairs docs not satisfy litigants or- judges; so, we sincerely hope that Congress will give us another jndgs; Cou rier. One of the questions about to b j considered at the forthcoming meet ing of tho National Prison Associa tion, is that of "indeterminate sen tences" or the sanding of convicts to prison without fixing a definite term and leaving the length of incarcera tion to depend on the good behavior aud industry of the convict. Very few convicts serve out .their senten ces as itiB, and if the ByBtera of in. determinate sentences were adopted it would be easier atill to escape mer ited punishment. News of the Week.
