We wonder if the editors of the Prescott Courier and Phenix Re publican had a quarrel before they "fell out."

A bank officer may make bad in vestments, but there is no excuse for him committing wholesale robbery. A San Franciscan claims that he can now light a twelve room house with the new water gas for sixty cents a month It will be a great thing for small towns in the in terior, where electricity or coal gas is an expensive luxury. The old capitol building at Har risburg, Pa., was destroyed by fire a few evenings ago and many val uable records were lost. The junketing legislative com mittees have all returned to Phe nix without causing a depression in the earth at that point. The Call and Examiner are now indulging in the pleasurable pas time of caracaturing each other s office force from the devil up. A picture of New York life 300, 000$ for a single dinner and 300, 000 people without any dinner Can any person blame thp people for becoming anarchists? Populists have been holding meet ings in many states during the week. What the object of the meetings was is not apparent un less a new partv is in process of incubation. The Swanhilda, the long-looked for vessel arrived in San Francisco Tuesdav morning with Butler, the Antipodean murderer on board. He was arrested and will be taken to Australia for trial. Newspapers are calling attention to the fact that in some of the close states more votes were cast than there were male inhabitants of voting age, excluding all not en titled to the franchise. The Prescott Courier is in deadly fear of a tax exemption bill, but if a manufacturing concern was to send a representative to Prescott for the purpose of obtaining a bonus for its establishment we doubt not that the Courier man would be found working tooth and nail for it. ARIZONA SOFT PINK LUMBER Railroad Ties 3Iining Timbers Btiil&ing Material Lath, ShigJes, JEtc.'L Mill near Williams, ylrizoma The passage of the act by the Arizona legislature permitting the Santa Fe to absorb the Atlantic & Pacific road with all rights and privileges granted the old company was a step in the right direction. The Santa Fe, under this act, will be enabled to build through to the coast. It now transpires that the Eng lish government "worked" Secre tary Olney in formulating a new treaty and that the senate has re fused to confirm it because it will leave our lake cities in a defense less condition. Mr. Olney may know something of American pol itics, but he is a back number diplomat. The snobbish aristocracy of New York City are rejoiced at the no tority given them by the newspa Ders through the medium of a ban quet to cost 300,000-$. The vulgar display of wealth does not impress the average American favorably. These people, like Sandv Bowers, should g) to Europe where they could spend their money like gen tlemen. Kingman should have a mining exchange. Our constantly growing mining interests demand an insti tution of this kind if for no other purpose than to defuse information of our resources throughout the country. The investigation of the Senator ial election in Washington is bring ing out some startling testimony. One legislator swears that he was offered 6000$ by Senator Squire for enough votes to insure his return to the senate. All is not sunshine for the Ari zona legislators, an session tnev authorized the appropriation of 500$ to pay the expense of five committees of investigation of pub lic institutions but the governor saw in it a useless piece of extrav agance and refused to sign the bill. Now the junketers will have to pay expenses of their pleasure trip out of their own pockets. Swinnerton, the Examiner's artistic cartoonist, is destined to become one of the greatest artists of the west and he is backed up by an appreciative community. The Examiner and Swinnerton have the call in Arizona. Kingman is missing a big thing at present by not being incorpo rated. A town that is on the boom, as is Kingman, should have all the necessary adjuncts of a city. A move in this direction should be made at once. Arizona by all means should have a poor farm. The cost to the coun ties for care of chronic indigents is becoming enormous. A poor farm could be made practically self-sustaining and the excess would be come a territorial charge. Many of the smaller counties are bearing more than their just burden of in digent expense and should in some manner be relieved. This is one of the questions our legislature should deal with promptly. The east and north have been in sufferably cold this week and other great storms have been predicted for the month and the early part of March. En Mohave county, on the Colorado river, the trees are leaving out and the weather is de lightful. A great roar is being sent up over the fact that Oakes Murphy has introduced in congress a bill covering the matter of appointments by the governor of Arizona after ad journment of the legislature. We believe that, as the republicans will be held accountable for affairs in Arizona for the next four years they should have full sway. We feel sorry for you boys, but you must take your medicine and say it's good. Mohave county, as a mineral country, is second to none on the American continent. Gold, silver, copper, lead and other minerals are found in abundance. Many of the best camps in the county are back numbers, because of the lack of capital, to do the necessary amount of development work to bring them to the front. As an illustration we cite the case of the Eureka mine at Cerbat. For twenty years this property laid idle, only the neces sary title work being done on it. Now it is shipping thousands of dollars monthly and paying its owner handsome dividends. The turning down of Fred Dubois by the legislature of Idaho will not give the people of the country an exalted opinion of the new demo cratic populistic combine. Dubois bolted the republican national con vention last June and supported William J. Bryan for the presi dency, but this fact did not deter this mo"gel outfit in their determi nation to retire him from the United States senate. If his successor was a more able man no one would complain, but the opposite is the case. Senator Dubois is a forcible talker and a learned scholar and Idaho and the whole country will regret his retirement from the up per house of congress.
