Last week The Oasis stated cur sorily that information had been received that the federal govern ment of Mexico had ordered the various mining agencies in the state of Sonora to cease accepting denouncements of mineral lands by foreigners, and suspend pro ceedings in all cases pending. It seemed incredible that so sweeping an order should have been issued, and this journal pre ferred receiving the information from an official source before giv ing the matter more than casual mention; and for that reason await ed an opportunity to have a rep resentative call at some federal mineral agency in Sonora before attempting to give details from hearsay. Monday of the present week The Oasis editor called at the mineral agency at Hermosillo and wis given a copy of the official order, which latter is on file there. Following is a translation: 'Department of Fomento, third se tion. Owing to complaints hav ing U en made by some foreigners to whom titles have been granted to exploit mines in the state of Sonora and the northern district of Lower California that thev do not enjoy security and protection to work their properties and hav ing slandered the respective autho-j rities in that they do not extend i them protection, the president of j the Republic has ordered that for f the present and until further or-J ders there shall not be admitted in j the mine agenciesof the same states ! and districts, applications to ac quire mines that may be presented by foreigners. This I communi cate to you to the end that you do not admit any application what soever presented by foreigners fori mines wiunn tne jurisdiction ot your agency; at the same time you must suspend further action in all applications that come within this ruling. You will acknowledge re ceipt of the present communication and advise that you have inform ed yourself of the same for its "im mediate compliance. You must transmit to this department a de tailed statement of all applications refused by you as well as of those that you suspend which come un der this ruling. By order of the acting secretary. G IILLEHMO B. PlJOA. That there has been a great deal of severe criticism of the Mexican authorities in Sonora,- there is no doubt; and very frequently it has For every barber, livery stable man or restaurant man that Tin; No;ales Oash can produce who favors joint statehood, the Dis patch will agree to bring up fifty at least in each of these lines of business throughout the territory who do not favor jointure. In Douglas, the city council has al ready voiced thesentiment of every business man and private citizen in this city. Douglas Dispatch. Then why are the Dispatch and its ilk so persistent in their effort to defeat jointure in Congress? If they have so great a "cinch" why not let the Hamilton bill pass and defeat jointure at the polls in a constitutional election? Come, Brother Dorr, you have not yet answered these questions. Now don't try to close the issue by talking about the Foraker amendment. The Oasis has re peatedly declared a willingness to go before the people of Arizona un der the provisions of the Hamilton bill with the Foraker amendment. If once your crowd come before the people in a constitutional election they will have to discuss real live issues which they have feared to do. '-'!

It looks like the joint statehood spielers in Arizona have been look ing in the wrong place for political rehabilitation. It n ill take a tong time for this gang to square them selves with Arizona. International-American. So far as may be concerned The Oasis it don't have to square itself with anyone. This editor has al ways carried his sovereignty under his own hat. A SLIPPERY SEAT? There's always room for one more on the water wagon. Phoenix Enterprise. Why? As so manv fall off? Both the Prescott Prospect and the Martinez News-Herald have declared editorially that they "will accept joint statehood rather than no statehood." That has been the position of The Oasis all along. Nearly two years ago this news paper reached this conclusion that Arizona and New Mexico would have to accept joint-statehood or nothing, and made the same de claration now made by the two journals quoted. They quote the same reasons for their position heretofore presented by The Oasis. Complacently quoted by the chick-a-dee press of Arizona, we now read editorial utterances de claring Arizona unfitted for state hood, in newspapers that would! have indignantly spurned the as-1 sertion two years ago. 1 Were it not so pitiful the hula baloo of the anti-jointure people would be laughable. They claim to have with them ninety-seven per cent of the people of Arizona and two thirds of the people of New Mexico. Yet they dare not go to the polls and vote down a proposition which they could bury deeply were their claim true. Remarks an exchange: "A woman can guess a thing right quicker than a man can reason it." And if at first she don't hit it she can "guess again," and then beat him out. Several joints of the tail of the republican party have recently gone to Washington to join in the tremendous effort that is being made to wag the dog. " ' " ( i-ff of fi-f ) v, 1 j froif.'b red.
