except the temporary benefit that
might acrrue during the time of its
construction. The school bill was one
of great importance however in more
ways than one. It provided for the
expenditure of $10,000 to remodel and
furnish the school building here or
an expenditure equal to the amount
proposed for the monument. The fln
auical part of it however was the
least important feature of the meas

Prescott offered to give the free use
of a ?i:j,000 building for the school
as long as it was maintained. Gra
ham county, which already contains
the reform school, asked for a similar
school to the one proposed for Pres
cott, but offered no building or other
inducement for its location there.
Both bills passed the house, but in
the council the Prescott bill, with its
$15,000 bonus was defeated and Gra
ham county, without offering any
bonus or inducement was given a
school. At every session of the legis
lature some new scheme for spending
territorial money in the interest of
the southern counties is batched up
and passed, and "the soup is thrown
into" Yavapai county, to use a slangy
but expressive term.

I strongly iu favor of the manual traiu-

"There is much than can be said in
I favor of the pending bills providing

I ious is the measure providing for such
a school at Pre-s-ott. Yavapai, one of

Heaviest contributors to the territory

institution in that county.
"The question, however, takes on a
broader significance than a mere pro
posal to deal justly with the commun
ities which are heavy contributors of
taxes. Iu order that the territorial
university may become the great uni
versity which every loyal Arizonan
wishes it to be, it is necessary that
there be more preparatory schools.
And most important of all. perhaps,
is the manual training feature con
nected with the proposed institution.
The best capital a young man or a
voting woman can possibly have, in
addition to a good general education,
is a training such as can he bad only

now is an excellent time to lay the
foundations for giving such training

There seems to be a misapprehension
on the part of many of our citizens in
regard to the provisions of this bill.
It has been charge.) that the bill pro
vides for the city "swapping" the old
city hall school building to the tcrri
tory for f.VKiO. Such is not the case,
and iu fact the city, or school dis
trict does not part from the title to
that building uuder the law, except
that the use is given of it for the pro
posed collegiate and manual training
school. The territory appropriates
?10.000 for remodeling the building
.tud for furnishing it for the purpose?
intended and thereafter is to provide
.SSO0O annually for its maintenance.
The school is intended to take pupils
from the eighth grade of the public
school and prepare them for admis
sion to the colleges of the country
the manual training department being
a feature of the school. It will b
an important institution for Prescoii
and one which should receive the sup-
H)rt of every citizen of Prescott.
Col. Wilson's ' Phenix Democrat
showed its good will towards Yavapai
county on Thursday morning by mak
ing the following appeal, unheeded
though it was by the council, for the
Prescott collegiate institute and man
ual training school:
"The Democrat trusts in the name
of fair play and justice that the vote,
whereby Yavapai county was denied
fair treatment at the hands of the
council yesterday, will be reconsider
ed and justice be done our neighbor
ing county. Maricopa county is for
both measures, our people believe in
fair play and realize that the vote yes
terday represented everything but the
sentiments of the people of Arizona.
Messrs. Packard, Rice and Kibbey
cannot afford to allow that blot to
remain on the records of the council,
they cannot afford to vote for a train
ing school for Graham county, and re
fuse a similar institution for Yavapai.
L'ufairness in legislation is always re
sented by the people. Public matters
cannot be conducted along the lines
of spleen and personal hatred. The
interest of Yavapai county ought not,
and should not be submerged because
of dislike for one of her representa
tives, and we sincerely hope and
trust that all such feelings will be put
aside today, and the council will pro
ceed to rectify the wrong it perpetua
Governor Brodie veto of the wom
an suffrage bill was based exclusively
on legal grounds. The veto is quite
lengthy in which much law and many
decisions are quoted and the whole
thing is summed up in the closing para
graph as follows: "To my mind then,
it is clear that it was the intention of
congress to limit the elective fran
chise to male citizens; that the terri
torial legislature receives its powers
to legislate from congress, and that
the legislature in enacting House Bill
No. 81 into a law, legislated upon a
subject not consistent with the consti
tution of the United States."
One of the arguments used by a
Tucson paper against the annexation
of New Mexico to Arizona was that it
would deprive Arizona of home rule.
Arizona with those people down there
means from Phenix south. The only
home rule this section of the territory
experiences at present is the privilege
of paying taxes into the territorial
treasury to build public institutions
in the southern part, and to maintain
them. Northern Arizona could not
by any possible means be in any worse
condition of vassalage, even under
New Mexican rule than it is at pres
ent to our southern neghbors.

A half way eight hour law was passed

went by the board, while three new

The power plants will be located
on Fossil creek, about fifty seven
miles from Prescott. The machinery
required for these plants will of nec
essity be very heavy and Mrs. Tutt
stated that the first work the company
will have to do is the construction of
a wagon road from Mayer to Fossil
creek, a distance of forty miles, the
cost of which will be not less than
$30,000. The route for this road has
been selected with a view of securing
the lowest possible grade and will be
expensive, in proportion to the mini
mum grade secured. Not only will
this road be necessary, but it will also
be necessary to have special wagons
or trucks constructed for the trans
portation of the machinery.
This road of itself will be of great
benefit to this county as that section
of the county is practically isolated
now and without any means of com
munication with Prescott. Mrs. Tutt
also stated that with a very slight ex

THE KIND OF SEEDS THAT
As everybody knows there are good
seeas ana oaa seeas, seeds mat grow
and seeds tnat don t yield, and a lit
tie thought given now to tbe selection
of the seed you'll need, will be found
at harvest time to have been well
;pent if you select the world famed
Ferry's Seeds the kind that alwavs
yields. For nearly half a century
Kerry's Seeds have been known and
own wherever good crops are grown.
until farmer and gardener alike, have
learned to depend upon their wonde -
fully reliable growing and yielding
qualities, year after year, to the ex
elusion of all others.
Unfortunately the seed business
seems to afford a means for many un
scrupulous people, who aim to blind
the unwary to quality, through little
ness of price and boastful claims, who
in reality have nothing to substan
tiate their claims, no reputation at
laae, no past record as prool. It is
better to pay a little more for the
seeds and be assured of a great deal
more at the harvest by sowing Ferrv's
Seeds. The Seed Annual which is
sent free, postpaid, will be found un
usually interesting and instructive.

Tbe following good joke on Texas
railroad conductor is related in the
There are some few rilroaads in
this country on which it is considered
quite the right thing for conductors
on passenger trains to supplement the
earnings of their legitimate trade by
a little money "on the side" made
from change passengers. Such a road
is the Texas and Pacific, for instance.
1 It is quite a commou raying that the
road pays its dividends to its conduct
ors. It quite frequently bappeus that
after a few months of service on the
road a conductor has made a nice lit
tie sum of money through complac
ency in tbe matter of issuing the reg
ular tickets when he collects fares.
The road is in the habit of sending
out inspectors every now and then to
get an eye on the conductors who do
these things. The coming of this in
spector is generally well known. It
happened one time that Jim Reilly,
conductor on No. 3, west bound,
bought for himself a diamond ring,
such as conductors love. It was a
handsome bit of jewelry, and it ooaf

The inspector on his travels got into
conversation with Mr. Reilly. H
bad offered to buy his fare, and bad
been firmly told that the company had
a rule about "excess charges" which
excess would be dulv returned on
presentation of the slip which the
conductor gave him. They talked
mat s a pretty nice ring you re
weanu , said the inspector.
, Now, at that a great fear took hold
of Mr. Reilly. He knew tbe gentle
man tor wnat he was. He knew, too.
that an admission concerning that
ring would be liable to attract some
suspicion, for the wages of conductor:
are not princely. Therefore he lied

"I'll take it," said the stranger
diving down into his pockets. He
eyed the conductor closely the while
Jim Reilly was not a very bright
man. He pulled off the ring and
handed it over. After that he went

especially painful and severe when con

badly affected that the sufferer is unable
to perform the lightest work. This, like
all other types of Kczema, is due to acid

surface can possibly do more than soothe
the burning and itching or relieve tempo

OUR NEW OFFICIALS
A fire was di.-eovered about 7
o'clock last evening issuing from the
building occupied by Mrs. R. R.
Klaine as a residence and dry goods
and millinery store. Au alarm
brought the department out to the
scene promptly, although it was the
first tire alarm that has been given in
tbe town for mouths.
The Are started in the rear of the
building, or iu the residence part of
the building and had made consider
able progress before beiug discovered.
The promptness with which the de
partment reached the place together
with the efficiency displayed by them,
soon had the blaze under control al
though it bad worked its way up into
the attic of tbe building and it took
nearly an hour to completely extin
Mrs. Blaine went to Jerome on
Wednesday moruiug and the store was
closed since that time aud it is stated
that there was no one occupying the
residence part oi the building, so that
the origiu of the fire is a mystery.
While the building was saved from to
tal destruction it is stated that the
contents will prove almost a total loss.
One sewing maehine and a few minor
articles were saved.
One rumor of the origin of the fire
is that au attempt was made to rob it
and the thieves set it on tire. From
the fact that it was not yet dark, this
theory is probably not correct, and
probably started from the fact that
some parties attempted to loot the
place while it was burning. One man
was intercepted while making way
with an armtiil of goods, included in
the lot being a choice lot of millinery
hats of the very latest spring styles.
Tbe fire department uuder its effi
cient chief. A. A. Johus. came in for
much complimentary mention for the
1 work done by its members in
preventing the spread of the flames.
On account of the absence from the
city of Mrs. Blaine, no estimate ot the .
loss could be secured, uor could auy
information be obtained as to the
amount of Insurance if any ou the
