KINGMAN, ARIZONA, MARCH 20, 1897. NO. 21. 4 "It takes money to run a newspaper." St. John (Kan.) News. What an aggregation ; what a whooper. It has been disproved a thousand times; it is a clean case of airy fancy. Lt doesn't take money to run a newspaper ; it can run without money. It is a charitable institution, a begging concern, a highway robber. B'Godfry the newspaper is the child of the air, a creature of a dream It can go on and on, when any other concern would be in the hands of a re ceiver and wound up with cobwebs in the window. It takes wind to run a news paper, it takes gall to run a newspaper. It takes a scintillating, acrobatic imagi nation, and a half dozen white shirts, and a railroad pass to run a newspaper. But money Heavens to Betsy and six hands round, who ever needed money in conducting a newspaper! Kind words are the medium of exchange that do the business for the editor kind words and church social tickets. When you see an editor with money, watch him. He'll be paying bills artel disgracing his profes sion. Never give money to an editor. Make him trade it out. He likes to swap. Then when you die, after having stood around for years and sneered at the editor and his little jim crow paper, be sure and have your wife send in for three extra copies by one of your weep ing children, and when she reads the generous and touching notice about you, forewarn her to neglect 10 send fifteen cents to the editor. It would overwhelm him. Money is a corrupting thing. The editor knovv3 it and what he wants is your heartfelt thanks. Then he can thank the p rinters and they can thank their grocers. Take your job work to the job office and then come and ask for half rates for church notices. Get your lodge letter heads and stationary printed out of town, and then flood the editor with beautiful thoughts in resolutions of respect and cards of thanks. They make such spicy reading, and when you pick it up filled with those glowing and vivid mortuary articles, you are so proud of our little paper! But money 3corn the filthy thing. Don't let the pure, innocent edi tor know anything about it. Keep that for sordid trades people who charge for their words The editor gives his boun ty away, loe Lord loves a cheerttil giver. He'll t.ike care of all editors. He has a charge from the state to act as a doormat from the community. He'll get the paper out somehow; and stand up for you when you run for office, and lie about your pigeon-toed daughters tackey wedding; and blow about your big-footed sons when they get a 4$ per week job, and weep over your shriveled soul when it is released from your grasping body, and smile at your giddy wife's second marriage. He'll get along. The Lord alone knows how but the editor will get there somehow. Covington Ohio, Gazette. jjeoisioq of fro, porta rice The following telegram was received Tuesday from Washington, and will prove of interest to many o! our readers: A question of great importance throughout the west, involving the pub lication of notices by mining claimants, was Bettlee in the decision of Secretary Francis in the case of H W. Gowdy et al., vs. the Kismet Gold Mining com pany, coming up from the Pueblo, Col., land district. These regulations have been generally disregarded. To prevent confusion and misrepresentation and to enforce the law, the following rule is substituted for rule 29 01 the official regulations: "The claimant is required to post a copy of the plat of such survey in a conspicuous place upon the claim together with a notice of his intent to apply for patent thereof, whether or not he will give the dale of posting, name of claimant, name of claim, raining district and county; whether or not the location is of record, and if so where the record may be found, giving the book and page thereof, the number of feet claimed along the vein and presumed direction thereof, number of feet claimed on the lode in each di rection from the point of discovery, or other well defined place on the plain; names of all adjoining and conflicting claims or, if none exist, the notice should so state." This will take effect June 1st next, and publications thereafter must conform to it Johannesburg News. (ijrturcq aqd )fafe. If it be unlawful to mix church and state affiirs, who will draw the line be tween them so that they can not fail of being distinguished and never become mixed? But the affairs of the church have to do with the Bible and other sacred records, and the affiirs of state have to do with stite books and theories For if the lawmaker shall presume to trench upon the sacred realm of the I church, or the churchman invades the domain of the state, what a mighty howl j that should make, and yet how often this is done, says tne u toman The following is too beautiful to let pass unheeded, but it dare presume to venture in the owo pastures church and state. In the course of a debate on the im migration bill Hon. J. T. Morgan, Ala bama's senior senator, and reputed one of the ablest, if not the ablest attorney in that body, pronounced an eloquent eulogy on the ten commandments and the man and woman who lives up to them He said : "If every man who is naturalized in the United States is compelled to read the ten commandments, that man will not die without having had an opportu nity to understand the groundwork of the civilization and the government of the United States. It can do him no harm. Whether he reads it understand ingly or not (I mean understanding in the eease A conviction of its truth), that man shall not go io his grave harmed by the fact that he has read the ten com mandments. There are a great many men in the United States today, native born and naturalized, who have never read the ten commandments. Tney are none tho better for that. The country is none the better off because those men have not read that basis of all Christian law. When a man is naturalized from a foreign country, there must be -better se curity for that man's intelligence in re gird to the true virtues and the true powers and duties of an American citi zen when he can satisfy the court by ostensible demonstrations that he has really read the ten commandments. "When we are making qualifications for those who are to become citizens of the United States, who are not born here, I insist that they will show that they have had some education of heart and conscience as well as of political con dition8. If I believe rhat even' man and woman who emigrates to the Untied Stites woula ne obedient to the ten com m mdments, you might take all political questions and throw them to the winds, so far as I am concerned. I should feel that we were secure in a higher class of citizenship, affected by loftier and better motives." Giaham Guardian. Henry W. Grady's Arraignment of the Liquor Traffic. Tonight it enters an humble home to strike the roses from a woman's cheeks and to-morrow it challenges this republic in the halls of congress. Today it strikes a crust from the lips of a starving child, and tomorrow levies tribute from the government itself. There is no cottage in this city humble enough to escape it no palace strong enough to shut it out. It defies the law when it canno: coerce suffrage. It is flexible to cajjle but mer ciless in victory. It is the mortal enemy of peace and order, the depjiler of men and the terror of women, the cloud that shadows the face of children, the demon that has dug more graves and Bent more souls unshriveled to judgment than all the pestilences that have wasted life since God sent the plagues to Egypt, and all the wars since Joshua stood beyond Jer icho. It comes to ruin, and it shall profit mainly by the ruin of your sons and mine It comes to mislead human souls and to cruah human hearts under its rumbling wheels. It comes to bring gray-haired mothers down in shame and sorrow to their graves. It comes to change the wife's love into despiir and her pride into shame. It comes to still the laughter on the lips of little children. It comes to stifle all the music of the home and fill it with silence and desol tion. lt comes to ruin your body and mind, to wreck your home, and it knows it must measure its prosperity by the swtftnes3 and certainty with which i' wrecks this world. Exchange. A Legislature as Incompetent as Arizona's. The We3tern Mining World siys: "The present ftate legislature ha cer tainly tried the patience of every citizen in the state, and when the governor called them down this week for rheir ex travagance and waste of time and money, his action received the hearty aporoval of all. The people were badly hood winked when they elected a large ma jority of the present legislature; they thought they were getting men who would put through bills that .would lessen the burdensome taxation and bring about reforms that would be of benefit and a credit to the great state. But. nothing ot this kind has been the result, and but a few trivial bills have as yet become laws." The country is today presented with the amazing as well as deplorable condi tion of thousands, nay tens of thousands of honest, sober, industrious men, out ol employment, famishing for food and clothing. It is amazing that in a land like uiirs, a land of public spirit, of pro gress and great achievements, a land with unbounded natural resources cap ahle of supporting ten times its present population, rich in agricultural and all other sources of material wealth that such a condition ahouid exist, with lood practically wasting in the fields and store houses fiiled to ovei flawing, yet honest, indus-trious men by thousands are tramp ing the country freezing and starving to death. The money that ought to be acting as a medium of exchange betwee n the unemployed and the commercial world instead of being in circulation is hoarded up in the usurer's yaults await ing a fresh decline in values, which th6y confidently and not without well ground ed hope, expect to follow the perpetu ation of the gold policy of 'he shyloeks, a oohcy ih;it was fastened on us by the money power of the world, and that is being maintained by boodle, coercion and deception. While it is to be de plored that such a condition of affairs exists among the working classes, yet before miny mouths will have pas?ed they will have had plenty of time to re flect en what It means to suetain the gold powers or monometalhsts of the world S ar.
