"When the present management took hold of the Journal-Miner last April, the future policy to be pursued was out lined clearly and distinctly. We placed emphasis, however, on the fact that the aim of this paper would be to work unceasingly and with all the pow er at our command on behalf of tho material welfare of Prescott, Yavapai, and Arizona, and especially so on behalf of the development of the stu pendous mineral possibilities that ex ist everywhere around us. That we have fulfilled our promises in the direction indicated is acknow ledged by the general public and sub scribers to this paper. Xcver a day has passed but the Journal-Miner has taken pains to secure reliable informa tion on our mineral resources, and where such information was reliable to boost the project. We have also been at considerable expense in collecting news and sending representatives to the various mining districts in or der to have information at first hand for the eastern capitalist and investor and for our own people at home. Tbat-our efforts arc being thorough, ly appreciated does not admit of any doubt. Scarcely a day passes but that we receive thanks personally or by let ter for our efforts to secure publicity for the wonderful mineral resources of Yavapai, and the publicity given to our mines and prospects has been re sponsible in directing, in many cases, the attention of those who possess the means to develop and equip many mines which have been waiting for years for just such persons to take bold of them. We are led into ealling the attention of the public to these facts by thf splendid reception given to our issue of yesterday, in which we printed all thr facts pertaining to the remarkable discovery of gold and copper ore re cently made at the Black mountain. Those who have pinned their faith to Prescott and Yavapai are at Ins receiving their reward. Although the awakening has been long delayed, yet it has come at last, and we feel certain that the greatest loom ever experi enced in the history of Arizona ii within measurable distance, if, indeed, it is not now on. Reports at the mo ment of writing would seem to favor the latter hypothesis, for hundreds of prospectors are rushing into the new district, every team and wagon within a wide radius of Wickcnburg having been pressed into service, the only drawback to a greater influx of miners being the absolute want of transporta tion facilities. As we pointed out yesterday, the dis trict through which the new railway is being contracted is absolutely virgin ground. It has never been prospected owing to itt inaccessibility and attend ant dangers, until quite recently. Tt is true a few old-time prospectors have gone into the district and located many d'-!ratlc claims, and it has been well known that the desert coun try from Wickcnburg west to the Col orado rivrr was a veritable storehouse of raiser?! riehfs. The advent of the r-ilway I.owrvr, has rendered pos--:Me what was hitherto almost impos sible, viz.. a systematic search of the desert country on either side of the line. So that when the full measure of prosperity comes to our section of the territory, we will have the railway builders to thank in a great measure for such prosperity. In continuance of our past policy, the Journal-Miner will devote all the en ergies at its command to publish to the world thq marvelous .ricbos and possi bilities 'for capital that . eist in every canyon and ,qn every mountain in Ari rona. Our aim will be to work con sistently for the !;ood of our trrritory. and in making this declaration we be lie.' we arr entitled to a full and un Comment stinted measure of support from all sec tions of the community. In the Journal Miner the public of Prescott and nor thern Arizona is being served with a paper unsurpassed by any in the ter ritory. In addition to the valuable mining news published, the reports of the Associated Press, the greatest news gathering bureau, perhaps, in the world, are published each morning, and this at considerable expense. Our politics are well known, but political exigencies have been and will remain a secondary consideration with the Journal-Miner, our principal aim being to assist in the upbuilding of Arizona, and prosperity of its people without regard to their politics. With a fuller measure of support from the public, we will be better able to give a larger and extend ed newspaper, and just so soon as the support given justifies the enlargement, it will be made. It is the duty of our citizens those who have been cradled in Arizona and love her every hill and valley, as well as those who have made their home here more recently, and have all the in fatuation of a first love to join and pull together for our common welfare, taking as their watchwords "Organiza tion," "Concentration." The golden valleys, and copper-filled mountains of the territory will do tho rest, and we shall then see Arizona rising, Phocnix likc, out of the ashes of a dead past, to take her place in our glorious Union, the brightest and most resplendent star. CAPTURES THE SOUTH. Theodore Roosevelt appears to have captured the south, or, rather, captivat ed the south. From every city the Pre sident so far has visited conic enthusi astic reports of his reception by the plain people, "whose expressions of ap proval of his public utterances leave no doubt of their sentiments. It is a case of veni, vidi, viei, with him. While it is too mneli .to expect a majority vote from the south for the head of the national Republican ticket, in ease Roosevelt again were the party nominee, there is every reason to be lieve that the southern delegates to the next national Republican conven tion will be instructed for the oceu pant of tho White House, in which respect they will resemble many of their northern brethren of the same po litical faith. At this writing there is no doubt the concrete sentiment of the country is for a second term for Roosevelt if he will accept. But will he? He has declared un equivocally against another four years at Washington, and it is hinted his ambition is to become president of his alma mater, Harvard university. It is even said that President Eliot, now in his seventy-second year, is merely holding down the chair until Roosevelt is ready to occupy it, otherwise he would have retired two years ago. Pos sibly this is true, but Harvard can wait another six years without suf fering if the country is so unanimous and insistent that Roosevelt is com pelled to yield. JOURNAL-MINER READERS WILL GET THE EXACT TRUTH As an evidence of the efforts this Journal is making to advance the in terests of this community and Yavapai county, it may be mentioned that the Journal-Miner has sent a special repre sentative to the Carrigan camp to in vestigate and report accurately the truth of the big strike, and give other information such as is desired by per sons contemplating going to the new goldfields. One of the richest strikes in the Bnidshaws has been reported, and the Journal-Miner already has a man on the ground who will describe the result of his investigations in an early issue, and also give a general report of the observations made by F. M. Murphy and a party of eastern peo- pie. It is such publicity as is being given by the Journal-Miner to tho developments and possibilities of the mining industry that is attracting east ern investors to our midst. There is no better agency for the upbuilding of a community than a live newspaper con ducted on metropolitan lines, and the next best thing is a board of trade. A SEEIOUS MATTER. A member of the Congressional party in town yesterday expressed great surprise and indignation that the public business in Xew Mexico or any part of it, should be conducted in Spanish, remarks the Albuquerque Journal. That juries in an American territory should be composed of men who could not understand the language of the country, he said, was an out rageous condition of affairs, and ought not to be tolerated. He considered this a matter of even more importance than tho question of statehood and said Con gress ought to put a stop to such pro ceedings at once. Our native citizens ought to find a good deal of food for thought in this matter. If the cause of joint statehood should fail, it is not only possible, but very probable that Congress will take such action as this gentleman has indi cated, and make the ability to speak and read the English language a con dition precedent to the rights of citi zenship. The native of the territory ought to recognize this fact, and take steps without delay to familiarize themselves with tho language of the country, and especially to have their children educated in English. The decidedly optimistic speech which the President made at Jackson ville in relation to the Panama canal is now referred to by the opposition pa per as "the President's wail," or the President's pessimistic remarks with reference to the Panama Canal. There never was agrcat undertaking like that of laying the great Atlantic cable, the early attempts of steam travel both by and and sea, but met with discourage ment and derision from the skeptical and fainthearted. There arc many living who can remember how plain ly it was proved by arithmetic, geo graphy and especially by rhetoric, that it was impossible to build a railroad across the Great American Desert from St. Louis to San Francisco, and others that are projected. In a brief refer ence to the canal in his speech at Rich mond, the President was interrupted by an enthusiastic boy, who shouted: "That canal will be built." His an swer with a display of teeth was: Sure." Prof. Haupt says it will take twer' five years to dig the Panama Cr.- '. Chairman Shouts says it will be d.- i in five years. Judge Yeomans tin: j we will be earning our money if I finish it in five hundred, but no one j predicted yet when the talking rr'. ! j stop anil the work begin. If the President succeeds in keep'-- Cabinet nows from leaking, the Sec-.' will try to learn how it is done aad .' ply the method to its executive sc. Mr. Rockefeller has been electee! s member by the American Humorists' association. This was just to show that the association could be humorous when it fried. The old deported, semi-savago quoon of Madagascar has petitioned the gov ernment of France for a larger allow ance, declaring that she has nothing to wear. Girl3 will be girls. She Looked Good To Him. George Harvey, at the dinner that he gave in New York last month in honor of M Witte and Baron Rosen, said, apropos of foresight: "With foresight, with looking keen ly ahead into the future, there often goes a deal of cynicism. This is not so much the fault of the person who looks ahead as it is the fault of the hu man nature that is looked ahead at. "In my native Pcacham there once dwelt a brilliant young lawyer. To him there came one day a tottering and grim Vermont farmer of SO years. " Young man,' said the fanner, 'I want to leave all I possess to my wife as long as she remains my widdcr, and after that I want everything to go to the children.' " 'How old is your wife, sirj' asked the lawyer. " 'Seventy-four.' " 'Then wouldn't it be quite safe,' the lawyer asked, 'to leave out the dis courteous phrase about so long as she remains your widow? Just leave her ev erything.' ' " 'Indeed I won't,' said the old man. " 'But surely,' said the lawyer, 'you don't think the lady, 74 now, will marry again 'after your death, do you I' "The old man looked the other full in the face as he answered solemnly: " 'Well, sir, there's no telling what young chaps like you might do for money." Exchange. INSULT TO THE NATION. Three Americans bearing tho name of Jefferson Davis have become known, more or less, to fame, and it has been the fate of each of them to be con fused with one other of the trio. Gen. Jeff C. Davis was a Union comman der, who never liked to hear his sol diers sing, "Wo '11 hang Jeff Davis to a sour apple tree." Jeff. Davis, pre sent governor of Arkansas, owes his two terms in office, it is said, with veri similitude, at least, to the fact that the backwoodsmen enthusiastically be lieve him to bo tho Jeff. Davis of Bcau voir, just as in Tennessee they still insist upon voting for Andrew Jack son. But the most recent bid for fame on the part of the last and least of the Jeff. Davises takes tho form of an in sult to President Roosevelt. There is a wholesome sentiment in this country that the President, while in office, rep resents in his person the dignity of the nation, and that any derogation thereof is not the personal affair of the chief executive but of the whole people. Gov. Davis, of Arkansas, has refused to attend the dinner to bo giv en in tho President's honor at Lit tle Rock, and whatever his motives, this studied action cannot be regarded otherwise than a flouting of the dignity of the President's high office. Jeff. Davis ITI. puts it on other grounds. He is making a grand stand play in state politics, and admits it. Ho says he will not sit at the same table with Hon. Powell Clayton, and as Mr. Clayton has been invited the governor will not come. Arkansas, as a state, is reminiscent at times of Hon. Bob Toombs, of Georgia, who died declaring that he could be reconstructed only against his will. Arkansas ii still so pro southern that it does not rd-nit even Texas to the confederacy. Texas be longs to tho west. Arkansas belongs to the south, but not to the Union. When Arkansas elects United States senators she still sends them confid ingly on their way to Richmond. If they, in their delegated wisdom, see fit to proceed farther to Washington, the fact must not be heralded in the backwoods. James K. Jones enjoyed this senatorial dignity until Arkansas discovered that he was chairman of tho national Democratic committee then, vale Jones. At present, Gov. Davis and Powell Clayton are the two most noted mon in Arkansas. Gon.-Clayton and Gov. Davis are about equally favored on the score of enemies among their fellow citizens.

Ho was governor of tho stato in reconstruction times; and all southern Democrats hate the carpet bagger. Davis, who has the reputa tion of being a boor by nature, and a demagogue by practice, has courted votes by invoking this hatred of Clay ton. His insult to President Roose velt is calculated by him to gain rotes. It must not bo supposed that tho in telligent classes in Arkansas, even among the rabid Democrats, endorse Davis. Ho has long been well dis liked in his own party by the more decent element. The incident serves to emphasize a condition in the Demo cratic party of the south that has its roots in antebellum history. Before the war the aristocratic southerners were largely whigs. They disliked the De mocratic party. They hated Jack son, and despised Andrew Johnson, The Democratic party was the party of the poor whites. Driven into tho organization by the rebellion, they have never since found their way clear to leave it. But inside the party the old antagonism is still manifested in fac tional differences. Nomination on the Democratic ticket in the south being usually equivalent to an election, men like Jeff. Davis occasionally succeed in reaching high office, but oven in Arkansas they may not be taken as truly representative of a majority sentiment. One of the nice adjustments of fate and fortune recently occurred when the ten Carnegie rewards for heroism all fell to people who were not only heroic, but who also needed the moncv. Colonel Watterson has become an en thusiastic admirer of President Roose velt. He could stand his loncsomcnoss no longer. PUBLIC RECORDS. Instruments Filed As Reported by the Prescott Title Company.
