J. C Martin, Editor, WEDNESDAY... .FEBRUARY 17, 188 MSULUmTU UITAIUW. In previously published article con cerning W. YL Meade, United -.tales Marshal, this paper has reftmined from any criticisms of his actions, being satis fied with facts and figures given, to let the public, as jury, decide the case witb - out argument. The frantic efforts of the Marshal's friends and supporters to secure a favorable verdict for their client, and, like an attorney with a hopeless case, they appeal to the sympathies of the jury, we feel impelled to submit a brief in the case alsa The appointment of Meads as United States Marshal,to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of CoL Tidball, was received with exoressions of satisfaction by the people of this territory, with the exception of a few disappointed appli cants for the position and their mends. While the appointment itself was con sidered a very weak one by those best acquainted with the appointee, it was received with general satisfaction from the fact that it was the first appointment made in this territory by Cleveland's administration and was an indication that the administration intended to carry out the plank in the Chicago democratic platform to appoint territorial officials from residents of the territory. While as stated.Meadewas considered by those who knew him best, not possessed of the ability to fill the posi tion, it was conceded that the ser vices he had rendered his, party were of such a nature as to demand recognition from iu He represented the party in the Chicago convention, and introduced the above plank in the platform and carried it through to adoption. It was also hoped by his friends in both parties, that realizing his own weakness for the posi tion, he would secure the services of deputies of such well known ability and eood iudzment. as would conduct the office in a manner creditable alike to himself, the territory and the branch of the general government he represented. as some of his deputies are the best possible selection he could have made But Mr..Meadc did not seem te realize his own wjakness and instead ofdraw- nn t'Wm. ' .l.Xl. ft r( I V . sttfif-. mrViil (UK Ul LjUUlUUlUl Ul IUV VW his superiors, as deputies, managed it he not only undertook the task himself but in addition undertook to run every other branch of the territorial government as well. As soon as a democrat was ap pointed governor the marshal hastened to map out a line of policy for him aad undertook to take the new appointees of chief justice and associate justices . under the protecting care of his demo cratic wings. How successful he was in this we leave for the public to judge, at present. Suffice it to say.that Mr. Meade undertook to cut a wider swath than the capacity of his Dlade would admit. On getting fairly into office he appar ently assumed as a truth what demo cratic papers not only in this territory but throughout the country had oft asserted that all republicans and particu larly rcpublicau officials were corrupt and dishonest and took upon himself the herculean task of cleansing this Auccan stable. In accordance with this plan he summoned a grand jury in Tucson, who wer; in sympathy with himself Kilitically, with one icdividual member of some ability, but with an unsavory record in public life, previous to his advent in this territory, as a guide and manipulator of the body. An attempt was made to secure wholesale indictments of republican territorial official, but the plan proved unsuccess ful and two or three indictments only were, found. These were of so palpably a partisan nature and displayed such a petty, partisan malice that they were denounced by democratic papers, even that staunch, uncompromising, demo cratic paper, the San Francisco Alta, taking cognizance of it and denounced it in most unmeasured terms. In nil these indictments a nolle has since been entered on motion of a democratic United Slates district attorney by order of a democratic associate justice. It is stated that these indictments cost the government about $i:,ooo, all of which it will c seen was expended to gratify the political ambition of a man, occupy ing a position he was not qualified either by ability cr honesty of motives to fill. .iaiea over nis paruai succesi, tor trie time being, in Tucson, on the opening cf court in Prescott a grand jury of tvrenty-thrce persoms were summoned, of vhich nineteen were of the same political ii.u as iuaivuai .uauc .nir. jieaoe, however, counted without his host, "and made the unfortunate mistake of summoning men of intelligence, who respected their oath more than they did partisan affiliation, one of them even bein excused by the judge as an fbsmictionis: because he saw fit to c.ercise his own judgment rathtr than tJl in with the partisan plans outlined. The result was that notwithstanding the partisan character of the grand jury i -t ..: cr t . i anu .c i.iu3i uuuw-g cuum oi me United States district attorney aad the nutsha! the object expected to be obtain ed by the latter was defeated. He had different material to contend with from he Siad in Tucson, and had no autocrat as a member of the body, as he had in that place, who could sway it as he saw fi The only result obtained, beyond a few criminal indictments, most of which vise, defeated on trial in the court, was a report censuring the thirtennth l;gisla live assembly fcr its extravagance and even in this democratic members as well republicans came under the scathing denunciation of the jury. The expense of this was enormous, witnesses having been summoned from icraote parts of the territory, but this together with results of the term of court Iiave already been given our readers. TMB BKXATK ve. CLEVCliAXl. Democratic papers are praising Cleve land for the stand he has taken in refus ing the senate any information in regard to removal cf officials for alleged cause. They refer to it as a manly act and one which indicates a firmness of character and purpose. We are entirely unable t draw the same conclusion from it, and instead of its being a s:gnof strength and firmness, to our mind, it has the appear ance of weakness. In his inaugural address, and again in his message to Congress, President Cleve land took strong grounds in favor of civil service reform. He has repeatedly assured the country that he would adhere.strictly to this doctrine, and that removals would be made only for cajse. In spite of all the protestations of bis love for civil ser vice reform, be has gone riijht along re moving republicans and appointing demo crats with greater rapidity than any man who ever occupied the position of chief executive. The only inference to be drawn from bis utterances and actions, is that every man removed by him is guilty of so me offense He casts a stigma on the character and reputation of every man so removed, and the senate would not be doing iu duty, if it did not demand of him, as it has, the papers in conrection with these cases. It is a duty it owes to the parties affected too. No man, even the President of the United States himself, has a right to thus arraign and convict before the country thousands of its citiiens.on ex parte evi dence, without allowing them to be heard in their own defense, or even furnishing the documentary evidence on which he basis his despotic act. In effect, this is what President Cleve land does in his removals, while profess ing to act strictly in accordance with civil service reform principles. If there is anything manly, if there is anything fair, if there is anything which indicates firm ness in this, we fail to see it The only inference to be drawn from it is that of weakness and hypocrisy. It indicates that the president is afraid if the facts in connection with his removals were made public, he would stand convicted, by his own utterances and acts,of double deal ing. That while professing a given set of principles he was guilty of acting in direct violation of them. Had he at the outset proclaimed pub licly that he was a believer in the. time honored democratic doctrine of "to vic tors belong the spoils," and that he in tended to make room as fast as possible for his friends and party workers, by the removal of republican officials fqr politi cal reasons, he would have encountered no opposition from republican senators. This is a privilege, which is conceded to him, and would have been freely granted, but the position he has assumed that "removals shall be made only for cause," calls for a full hearing of all cases and the causes for removal. The senate has taken a wise position on the question, aid one, it is hoped, from which it will not recede. a few rCT Jkxu ritiiiw: A number of territorial papers contain items from time to time, insinuating that every ex-republican official of this terri tory has been proven to be a defaulter, and United States Marshals particularly so. This may be so or it may not De faulter or not as each may be, one of these so-called defaulters run the office of United States Marshal for four years for $52,000, a less sum than has been drawn by the present democratic marshal in a period of about seven months; The records will show that he produced some good results with it too. They will show that during one term of United States court in Tucson, thirteen criminals were convicted of offenses ag-'mst the United States. Another of these soollcd defaulters expended something over Sioo,oso during a three year term of office. To offset this the court records will show that four oatmof five or probably nine out of every ten cases resulted in conviction and some of the most important and expensive cases tried in the territory up to that time were worked up by him. Things have changed now. President Cleveland in the greatness and goodness of his heart has given us a reform admin istration. He his provided this territory with a complete outfit of reform machin ery, in the shape of democratic officials. The present democratic marshal has been in office seven months. During that time he has drawn approx imately $75,000. v c have no means of ascertaining the exact figures, but from those at our command the above would seem to be a low estimate. In examina tion of the court records throuqhthe courtesy of E. B. Dodge, clerk of the court, we find that he filed estimates for thejune term here amounting to$i6,340. The estimates for the Nd ember term, if filed could not be found but by examina tion of the records we find the expenses as follows: Marshal's fees and expanses $S,47963 Juror's fees 4.i9' Witness fees.... 5i73o4 Miscellaneous i49riS- Estimate for transportation of prisoners 3,000.00 Total $16,294.32 Add the above to the June estimate and it gives a total of $32,63.5.32. For convenience sake, call it in round num bers $30,000. The estimates for Tucson, are usually larcer than for Prescott. Allowing the same however, and one half as much for the Phenix court and it gives our estimate of $75,000. In addi tion to the above accounts allowed for the Prescott term of court we find that an allowance of $4,S97-59-was n,a(ie on account of Deputy Marshal Mills of Phenix. Wheth this account was rejected by Judge Porter and then sen up here we are not prepared to state. We do know however, that Judge Porter was here in attendance on the supreme court when the accounts reached here and the writer of this was present in the clerk's office when he received them. He refencd to the accounts and to Deputy Mills in language more forcible than elegant on that occasion. An effort on the part of the inquisitive scribe how ever, at the time, failed to get at the true inwaidncss of the affair. From the above figures it will be seen that Lhe expenditures, under our demo cratic reform administration, have been in th: same proportion per annum, as large a sum as one of these much talked of republican defaulters spent during a three years' term of office and more than twice as much as another of them spent during his four years' term. As to results, we only have the balance sheet for the $32,634 drawn for the Prescott term of court, which is as follows: One grand jury report, which we can value at $:'o,ooo, one conviction far selling whUky to Indians $i,ooo, two pleas of guilty to same charge at$too each $200, three judgments in civil suits amounting to $2,500, and still have the sum of $S,034. to place to the account of democratic economy and reform, giving us a total of $32,634.32. It will do to throw "Republican Treasury Wrecker" sand into the eyes of ignor&nt to blind them, but thoughtful reasoning citizens will not be hood winked by any such epithets. No man cf reason was ever influenced by epithets of this kind and the use of such terms only show a weakness on the part of those using them. Wc cast no insinua tions in the above, one way or the other, j in Ki-ard to the United States Marshal, but simply publish facts and figures as as wc can find them, except of course on the credit side of the balance sheet The rcadin ' public is left to draw its own conclusions in regard to so-called repub lican defaulters and "treasury wreckers" as against democratic reformers and economizers. An additional fact might be added here, that during the four years' term of office, of the republican office holders mentioned above, it was not thought necessity by the department to send a special agent, while the present incum Lent, only in office seven months, has had the extreme honor of an official call from one, and it is alleged has been called upon for an additional bond, i.ti:i!:tis; litter r9M j. j. ;ostHK. Denver. February 8, 1886. Editor Joorna-Miner: Speaking from a profitable standpoint, may I not say, the future .of Prescott may be on a parallel with the past of Denver. The conditions of climate, soil and other circumstances which surrounded Den ver a number of years ago, are so nearly those which surround Prescott to-day. that I cannot refrain from saying at least it is quhe within the range cf possibil ities, if not quite probable, that Prescott will become the Denver of Arizona. The natural resources of northern Arizona, are very much the counterpart of this section of Colorado. In natural mineral wealth I think we can largely discount Colorado, counting in our immeasurable copper deposits, with which Colorado is not to abundantly blessed. In th: line of live stock raising, in the quantity of production, we can come in under the wire at the end of the race many lengths ahead. In climate we far excel. Our winters are always mild and open and our mines maybe worked successfully throughout the year. This cannot be done in many of the mining camps of Colorado. Some winters the loss of cattle is large in this state, because of cold and destructive storms. While we meet with no losses because of winter storms, at the same time the natural increase cf cur herds is several per cent larger on account of our more favorable climate. As a locality for health receiving and sight seeing, Prescott and vicinity pre sents advantages far ahead of Denver. With reference to railroad facilities, this famed queen city of the west, was at one time no more favorably situated than we now are. About midway between the Union Pacific on the north and the Atchison. Toneka & Santa Fc on the south, her situation is similar to our own except that she has a north and south road connecting her with both these transcontinental railroads. The time wilj come when Prescott will have her north and south connections with the Atlantic & Pacific and the Southern Pacific, and then who is rash enough to say Denver will not have a dangerous rival in our coming mountain city? . J. G. li EMiltAL. lU-Ut'M MKAB. Word was received at military head quarters to-day of the death of General Winfield S. Hancock, which occurred at Governor. Island, New York, this morn ing. No particulars of his death were given. General Hancock won distinction during the war of the rebllion and was candidate for president on the demo cratic ticket agaidst James A. Garfieid in 1SS0. He was a patriotic citizen and good soldier anil his death will be mourned by the nation at large. His death creates a vacancy ia the rank of Major General in the army which with the retiring of General Pope next month, will without doubt, result as it should, in the pro motion of General Crook to that rank. If any man in the army has merited this distinction it is General Crook, whose entire military life has been of active ser vice on the frontier ,vith the exception of the period during the rebellion. The sum of $16,294.32, of which $5,479.63 jjoestothe office of the United States Marshal, for one term of court, in which one man was convicted of crime and two others plead guilty, looms up in fine shape as an example of democratic simplicity, and reformatory economy. A KIBlCUbtttla rt.KA. A few enemies of this paper are trying tD make capital against it and injure its business because forsooth we have seen fit to publish facts and figures concern ing certain democratic officials. They use the argument that in so doing we are injuring the town of Prescott and woiking against Us prosperity because the money spent for United States court in Prescott, was put in circulatiou here. Of course the plea is too ridiculous to be entertained by sensible people. In the first place only a small proportion of it is circulated here and in the second place wc have greater faith in the possi bilities and resources of the country than to believe that the existence of Prescott depends upon what any democratic official may sec fit to dole out to it in the way of patronage. The same parties who are now raising this cry, were also very jealous of the prosperity cf the town a year ago when the legislature was in session. And if opposition was broached in regard to any matter of legislation, they would exclaim, "Oh no, it will not do to oppose that it will hurt Prescott We must not oppose having so many clerks, they will all spend their money in Prescott" Ever since the lesislature adjourned they are the ones who have been the loudest mouthed in their cry of high taxation and of the extravagance and corruption of the thirteenth legisla tive assembly. This class of citizens we are happy to state are very few in num ber. IXPOKTMT DEClMiesT. A decision of great importance was rendered by United States Circuit Judge Brewer, last week. In the' case in point the couit declared that -vhile the power of a state to prohibit absolutely the manufacture in the future, yet where a person has engaged in such manufac ture while it was legal, the state cannot prohibit the continuance of such busi ness without paying the value of the property destroyed by reason of such prohibition. This decision, if supported by the cocrt of last resort, must carry with it very important consequences. At present the operation of the principle laid down will be of importance chiefly in the state which have adopted prohbi tory legislation within recent years, but ofcoursethedoctrineiscapableol general application, and its scope .may be very much extended in the future. Judge Brewer's decision can hardly be regarded as setting the question at rest It must be passed upon by the Supreme Court before any settlement of it can be re garded as conclusive. Bradstrect APFABKST COVIK lOIUMOXK. "The death of W.W. Hutchinson, one of his (Marshal Meade's bondsmen), necessitated the giving of a new bond." Courier, Feb. 1 1 . "The sUtement that the U. S.Marshal Meade, had to go south in order to give an additional bond is a falsehood." Courier, Feb. 12. "The other statement that Inspector Fisher was sent here to examine his (Marshal Meade's) account, is another." "Mr. Fisher came here to examine accounts of old and new officials." Cuurier Feb. 12. Mr. Meade is the only new official who has accounts to be examined in Precott, hence our contemporary while denying also confirms our assertion. -AFRAIU Of JIAKtUAJ- XEADEI Who of brains, honor, or character will say that in the language of the Courier, is afraid of Marshal Meade. About the first thing this democratic marshal did after entering upon his officials duties was to gather together a democratic grand jury and file com plaints against innocent men. He has undertake to convict persons who did not conform to his ideas and political convictions. He has thereby incurred an expense upon the federal government of a larger amount with no good result than any other U.S. Marshal during his entire term of effice. This paper has never said that "it cost more to run the last session of U. S. Court, than any other court," but that it cost more than anv previous term of court held in Prescott We believed it to be a fact when we published it, we believe it now, and shall continue to be lieve until figures are shown to disprove it. We also believe there never was a term of court held here at which there was so little to show for it The state ment has never been published that Marshal Meade expended more money than authorized nor was anything pub lished in this paper, which could be con strued to mean that "We stated and still adhere to it that a portion of his accounts has been suspended in Wash ington. If our contemporary wants to defend democratic officials let it answe1 charges made and not misrepresent them. We do not deal in inuendo of any kind, but say what we mean and mean what wc say. We stated that Marshal Meade had gone south to give an addi tional bond. Our contemporary states the same thing. We would like to en quire, right here, if Special Agent Fisher did not come here to examine Marshal Meade's accounts, what his business was. The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the tiuth, is that that was his mis sion. Democratic papers, which for years have been accusing republican officials and republicans generally, with every crimes known to the statutes of our country, hold up their hands in holy horror if the slightest criticism is made ol a demo cratic official. It produces nightmare in one m this territory and it immediately commences in the most frantic man ner to yell Churchill! Churchill!! Chur-ch-ill!!! Since the accession of the party to power, the Territory ef Arisona has received couMenblc sttentian from the administration. There bavebeeaa great many special agents of tas raries departments engaged ostensibly ia Bak ing official investigations, but aa baa since been shown, tadr real object waa to discover some canse for the removal of the federal officials. Ia many inetan ces when no complaint wonld Wage, they have harrasaed the iaconibent upoa the most flimsy of pretexts and resorted to methods to secure the loam aad fishes that only a sort of political des peration could suggest Ia oar wwa Territory these baseless accusations nave effected the purpose for which they were invented, and those who did not vefata tanly resign were removed by cxecativc order. But the fact should be recorded that every one of them want oat with clean hands and good records ia spit of the protracted espionage set apea them. The eaaploymeat af special federal officials, paid by the general government, te advance partisan par-' poses by creating places fee the hench men, is a perversiea of political pewer that the democratic 'adnunistration baa deliberately inaugurated, and it remains yet to be seen whether or not thesysteaa willjeceive the popular condemnation it deserves. Citizen. Our contemporary has recently that Attorney General ChurchiU received $1,700 from the county for deiag nothing. The Atlantic fc Pacific rail road refused to pay taxes when Chat. B. Rush was district attorney and retained Rush & Wells to assist Judge Haxcldine in resisting payment Attorney General Churchill was retained by the Board of Supervisors to defend the interests cf the county. The Board then consisted of Messrs. Kline, Hutchinson and Myers. Instead of litigation which would have lasted for years, a compromise was effected whereby the railroad agreed to pay taxes on an assessed value of $4,000 per mile, the taxes amounting to $as,oeo per year. The county has received some 66,eoo from the ramk af that compromise. 'The Board paid Mr. Churchill $1,500 for his services. When the same company announced that it would resist payment this year, Mr. Churchill was employed to prepare aa opinion on the subject, far which he was paid $250, Messrs. Rush It Wells aad ex-Chief Justice Howard also being retained in the case on behalf of the county. These are the facts aad the public can judge for itself whether Mr. Churchill did any work or not, also whether the Board was justified ia secur ing his services. The following from the Tucsea Star has the right ring to it: "The fact should not be long sight ef that Captain Craw ford was a commissioned officer oi the U. S. army discharging honestly aad faithfully the duties confided to aim under the treaty to assist in the pursuit and destruction of the common enemy, when foully murdered by the treepa ef Mexico. Time was when the simple ex pression, "I am a Roman ckizea," insured its speaker protection all over he world. The Uain proclaiming his nationality enjoys the same protectiea to-day; but can as much be said for American citizens who have been in veigled into lending their brain aad tcapital for the development of the Mex ican republic? It is a notorious fact that few American money investments, arc safe in Mexice. The only way to insure safety is to incorporate asaa English, German or French corporation Is it not time for the United States to put a stop to this discrimination against American citizens, especially so when they kill American army omcers in cold blood?" Explanatory of tne alleged charges recently published by the Phenix Herald against Marshal Meade that paper stai that "Tucson Democrats are after U. SL Marshal Meade which a sharp stick. 1 ne original complaints against sum were put in from Tucson and many of the charges with Inspector Fisher has found agamst him, we learn, are from the sturdy Democrats of Tucson and Phenix. They arc perfectly right in this matter. The office should be and must be dis charged with business ability and great care and honesty aad if Meade has failed to do this, as it appears he 'has, he has occupied the position long enough, ia fact too long, already." Having failed to indict republican officials through the partisan machinery of courts the present democratic c facials still are m along vain efforts to besmirch their character through newspaper articles l nese articles contain nothing that ts new to the people of this territory hence will have but little effect here. They however contain such ingenious mien presentations ef the territorial finsnrtf as to wotx incaicuuDie injury to tne territory by keeping out capital. The misrepresentations of democratic papers, and of democratic officials during their brief period in office has done more positive injury to this territory than the most reckless andextravagant legttlatiea could do in years. Every time a republican paper treads on the corns of a democratic omcial, the air becomes resoaant with the sounds of "treasury wreckers," "ChurchuV' "Ch ur-ch-ill," "C-h-u-r-c-h-i-1-1," "de faulter," "falsehood," "lit," "defaming officials," "injure town and section," from every organ ia the territory. In stead of such flimsy aad stereotyped epithets, why don't they give us some thing new and fresh. The Gazette very flioDantly dismi the charces against M"1 Meade as beinz merely technical. If the depart ment at Washington will only adept the same view it will be fortunate far him.
