KEAi), Ponder, send Abroad to Your Friends, And File Away For Future Reference. It is not a pleasant duty to criticise se verely the acts of public servants, al though it is within the province of hon est journalism, in promoting the public weal, to expose official incapacity when ever found. The credit and good nante ol Arizona has been most foully attacked. The progress of the territory has received a most serious set back. It has become almost impossible to negotiate our bonds and securities abroad and cn that account the most desirable enterprises , for the development of our resources nd the promotion of needed internal improvements have been brought to a standstill. How have the people's in terests been betrayed? The evidence accumulates and the proof is incontrovertible that this unfor tunate state of affairs has been brought abeut by a set of political schemers, who have determined at all hazards, and at whatever sacrifice of truth and public progress to carry out their partisan pur poses. Very soon after assuming the duties cf his office and before he could reason ably claim to thoroughly understand the scope of his position, the present democratic governor of Arizona prepared a report and sent it to Washington, set ting forth in general terms and without regard to details that the financial affairs of the territory were in a deplorable con dition, and indulging in a wholesale arraignment of his predecessors in office, and the legislation had under them, erroneously, whether intentional or not, placing the territorial indebtedness at $7cc,coo, claiming that the territory had comparatively nothing to show for this in the way of assets, charging previous administrations with reckless extrava gance, implying that the rate of taratfon for territorial purposes is Durdenom ceclanng with eager presumpticr.wnere- in the lesislation was wasteiul and unnecessary and inviting the aWention and action of congress. The result of this hasty and ill advised action by Governor Zulirk and the per version cf truth in his report was to induce the Harrison inquiry into the financial condition of the territory, and to attract the attention of the whole country through associated press dis patches and otherwise to our alleged bankrupt oondition. The Secretary of the Interior, in view of the aggravated state of affans here, as represented to him by Governor Zulirk, hid btfoic the Senate at the United States a copy of the acts of the i jth legislature of Arizona, with a com munication referring to the so called cckh-ss and extravagant legislation. Territorial bonds which were in demand at a premium before these false icports were promul 'ated are not de- red by investors even at a considerable iliscounL The progress of the territory has received a set back which can only re relieved by a complete refutation of :hese injurious misrepresentations. We believe that Governor Zulick now regrets his hasty action and that he was misled by over-zealous and unprincipled partisans, political harpirf, who to pro mote their own desires and gratify per sonal malice perhaps, were willing to crifice the public credit. He has certainly experienced a change cf heart upon some subjects, (or he is a model of inconsistency) notably the oiraal School over the advantages of whuh 'te waxed eloquent in a late speech at Tempe, although in his icport to Washington previously referred to he said: "We need neither Normal School or University," and characterized the appropriations therefor,' as "extravagant and reckless." In his statement of territorial indebt edness he included the $25,000 for university purposes although the bonds have not been issued nr have they been called for. He has recently filled vacancies in the Board of Regents by appointment, how ever and if the Board organizesand the bonds are demanded and issued as authorized Dy law he will no doubt con gratulate the people in his usual happy manner upon the establishment of the institution. He has already considered it politic to depict in glowing terms to the people of Salt river valley the advantages of the insane asylum, which is in the course of construction there. The appropriation of $100,000 for the construction of the asylum and maintenance of the territor ial insane it will be remembered has been the subject of especially caustic criticism by the Governor and his politi cal associates. This inconsistency is in keeping with his notorious proclamation in which he advertised our people as outlaws and promoters of turbulence and disorder, which he retracted and explained after the mischief had gone abrood. It is barely possible tbat the Governor means well but the fact remains that by his inconsistencies, errors of judgment, or partisan zeal, whichever it may be, he has worked a great injury to Anzona.and the cajoling and fltttery which he now offers to the citizens of the territory wherever he goes will scarcely be accept ed as an adequate return for the mistakes he has made and the blows he has given the public credit. The people of Arizona will hardly be such credulous dupes, as to believe the Governor a sincere friend to their inter ests unless he promptly and unequivo cally endeavors to undo the harm he has done by the Misrepresentations con tained in his reports. Unless.he does this he must be considered by all intelligent citizens, independent of cliques or politi cal affinities, as an unworthy public ser vant and a political demagogue. Following in the wake of the injurious and distorted reports sent abroad by the Governor came a remarkable campaign document published by the Prcscott Courier and widely circulated as a sup plement to that paper. It was evidently intended to serve the double purpose of prejudicing public opinion for partisan interests, in connection with the election which does nut take place until next fall. as well as to help intrench democratic federal cftcials in their indefensible attack upon the good name and credit or Arizona. The authorship, it is alleged, belong to the Governor's office, but as no proof to that effect is apparent and as it was first published at editorial matter by the Courier the credit or discredit of its promulgation belongs to that piper. It i a truly democratic article; it is entirely partisan; it improperly places responsibility; it'argues,repudiation; itis ingeniously worded to mislead; it is false in its deductions and unjust in its infer ences; it can have no weight within the territory, except with the ignorant and unthinking, whtm it may deceive. It may do much harm abroad in conjunction with the governor's reports, in affecting sale of territorial bonds, and retarding the construction of railroads and other internal improvements, within our boun daries. For this reason it should be noticed, refuted, and the refutation thoroughly circulated. It falsely places the territorial indebtedness at $700,000, and is harmonious throughout with the method adopted by the governor of man ufacturinz political capital for partisan purposes, regardless of truth at whatever cost to the welfare and advancement of the territory. Under the caption of "Dimes and Dollars" this peculiar document confines itself to the proceedings of the last two legislative assemblies and clumsily at tempts to prove that republicans and republican officials were wholly respon sible for what ever improper legislation was had The absurdity of such a prop osition is apparent in the fact that the lower house of the iath legislative assembly, and the one in which the appropriation bill originated was organiz ed and controlled by democratic mem bers, with a strong working majority, and both houses of the 13th legislative assembly were composed of half demo crats and half republicans. By reference to the journals of both bodies it will be seen that many of the acts which "Dimes and Dollars" characterizes as unneces sary and wasteful were democratic meas ures, actively defended by democratic members. That there has been extravagance and a considerable misappropriation of public money for clerk hire, printing, etc., in excess 01 tne provisions maae uy me general government for expenses of ter ritorial legislatures, during the last two sessions of the legislature in Arizona is true, and whether the opinion rendered by Assistant Attorney General Montgom cry in relation to the legality of such ap propriations is good law or not, the appropriation for such purposes in this territory have been excessive and unrea sonable, which fact is deplored by all who are desirous of good government, regardless of party affiliations. Bnt the attempt of the author of "Dimes and Dollars" to fix the entire responsibility for this extravagance upon the republi- ... 1 cans ol the territory ana 10 acquit democrats of all blame in the premises is a ridiculous and vain effort to make political capital tor his party by shitting responsibility. His argument Is based upon the fact that at tne time this legislation was had i mc governor 01 tne territory was a re publican, and because of his failure to veto these acts, the republican party should beheld accountable for all extrav agant appropriations, even theugh they were the result ef democratic measures. Of course, this specious reasoning is prepared to deceive the ignorant if it is expected to deceive anybody. Everyone, who knows anything at all about legisla tive methods, knows that these obnox ious appropriations were not presented to the governor as specific acti, thereby affording him an opportunity of vetoing them, without destroying the efficacy of other and necessary legislation, but that after being adopted by the legisla tors of both political parties they were, presented to the governor, embodied in the general appropriation MIL He had no alternative, but to approve the bill or by vetoing it kill all the meritorious leg islation, based upon appropriations, and leave the territory without a revenue for two years. It is doubtful if the latter course would have met with the appro val of any considerable number of our citizens even if the opinion of the Assis tant U. S. Attorney General, upon the legality of the objectionable appropria tions had been then before the governor. T. . t A 1 . r 1 1 . ii ib aiso Qouotiui 11 oy such a course any very large amount would have been saved, as added to the inconvenience of conducting the affairs of the territory without any provisions for revenue, the territorial warrants would, as a natural consequence, have become very much depreciated and the territorial credit seriously impaired. There would have been a howl raised long and deep from those who desire north and south railroads or other inter nal improvements and beneficial enter prises which many of the appropriations of the 13th legislature were intended to promote. It is also more than probable that having agreed upon the amount of appropriations the legislature would have passed the bill over the Governor's veto. But be this as it may, with the cunning peculiar to political tricksters, a fair and truthful statement of the case is stud iously avoided, and the inference which the uninformed are expected to accept is that the Governor could have vetoed portions of the appropriation bill without vetoing the whole and therefore he and his party are directly responsible for the extravagance with which the legislature is charged. Such shu filing subterfuges and clumsy efforts to shift responsibility are easily exposed. They cannot deceive the people. The people realise that if these evils are to be corrected they they must elect able and honest repre sentatives and that allegiance to party must not be allowed to shield venality. The Courier has never come oa squarely on the proposi tion, that the entiie appropriation bill passed by the 13th legislature should have been vetoed. It has endeavored to promote partisan purposes by evasions and misrepresen tations. The author of "Dimes and Dollars," assuming that he is not the Courier editor, adopts the sam course. It is doubtful if either of them will put themselves squarely before the people as advocates of repudiation, although if the following excerpt from the tatter's cam paign boomerang means anything, it means that heisin favor of going back on the territorial obligations. "Ask congress to intervene and annul acts of the last session whereby the ex penses of our territorial government will be increased without adequate benefits." It is possible that the writer's object was to pander to a few dishonorable extremists by that paragraph trusting that it would be overlooked by the up right and fair dealing members of his party. We venture to say that in all Arizona there cannot be mustered a corporal's guard of either democrats or republicans who will favor the dishon orable method of repudiation. The people of the frontier are not made up of such material. Impartial members of both parties, who have the good of Arizona at heart must surely deplore such cowardly stabs at the good name of this territory, and regret such injurious attacks upon the territorial credit. In searching the public utterances cf ex-Governor Tritle for evidences of cul pability, the partisan writer found the following' language in the governor's mes sage to the 1 2th legislature: "The withholding of the use of money is not always proper economy. The ex penditures made for such purposes as give the people increased comforts and greater conveniences, and which enable them to acquire wealth more rapidly is always proper legislation." Upon this . he comments as follows: " He gave the legislature to understand that there would not be, so far as he was concerned, any check given to their rapacity, and by employing more clerks than would be required to run any legis lature in the country, they were doing what they could "to enable them to ac quire money more rapidly." The charge is so weak and silly, and the imputation so manifestly unjust, that it can only inspire-contempt We do not propose to champion ex- Governor Tritle. He is not infallible, and has doubtless committed many errors of judgment, but we know this of him: When he assumed the duties of the office of governor of Arizona our affairs a ere in a very unsettled and unsatisfac tory condition, He went to work with energy and ability to place our territorial R"verDBBot upon a prosperous basis, Me went to Washington, and accom pusoed store in two weeks for the good ol Arizona, than all our territorial dele gates had done. He secured the ap pointment ef a U. S. Attorny, and put in motion the machinery of the United States courts within the territory, He secured the cooperation of the federal government in suppressinj outlawry and disorder. Through his instrumentality. the territorial prison abuses were cor rected The territorial indebtedness was funded. Bond were retired, bearing a high rate of interest, and a lower rate secured. Territorial warrants advanced from 80 cents on the dollar to about par. The territorial credit and business pros- perky improved in every way. He has always been foremost in pro moting beneficial public enterprises. He has expended money I'berally in devel oping the resources of the country, and, unlike his successor, his voice has never been raised against the good name -and credit of Arizona, for the gratification of arrow political prejudices nor for the attainment of personal political aims. We not only know this, but the people of Arizona know it, and they will scarcely rxem with favor the venomous attacks made upon him by political schemers for political purposes. As to Auditor Clark and Attorney General Churchill, who are also attacked the former bears the reputation of being an able and homest oslcer, against whose capability and integrity the breath of suspicion has never been cast. The only charge that can be sustained against him is that he is a republican. The latter we believe to be a capable and faithful public servant. He has been mostly viciously assailed by the democratic press of the territory and the most venomous assaults appear to be the outgrowth of personal animosity and malice. If General Churchill has been guilty of malfeasance in office let him be impeached and let the tirade of abuse which has been leveled at him cease.. The people are tired of it and it can do the territory no good. Continuing his remarks the repudiator enumerates a long list of what he calls 'doubtful, expenditures," which in great measure" he assumes with supreme conceit might at least have been saved to the people. He attacks the proposi tions of insane asylum, territorial library university. Normal School, territorial prison, commissioners to the expositions, commissioner of immigration and other minor items aad covertly thrusts at the public schools. He bad probably not been advised of the change of heart experienced by hi chief in reference i the normal school, university and insane asylum, but he makes the admission: "How much of this was necessary to the well being of the territory we cannot say." The citizens of Arizona have discussed these questions pro and con and under stand them. The iterations and reiter ations of partisan writers and a partisan press cannot hood wink the peopla. It is evident that considerable ques tionable legislation has been had and the responsibility is properly placed with those legislators wao nave misrepresent ed public interests' and doubtless they may be found in both parties. It made no difference to the author of the "Courier Supplement," in which party these measures of dqubtful exped ency originated, his sole purpose was to besmirch a previous republican adniinis t rat ion, No matter bow great a sacn- Ice ef truth it cost or what the effect o'f his campaign paper might be in depre ciating oar territorial securities, prevent- in tbe invettaent of capital and other wise giving the progress of Arizona a bsck-rtet It mattered, not to him how injuriously he assailed the public credit or what false impressions he created abroad. He was blindly seeking a par tisan advantage at whatever cost to the public weal The whole policy of the prrsent demo cratic edrsunistration in the territory has been to encourage partisan antagonisms amongst the people, to misrepresent and villifv their predecessors in office to recklessly assail the territorial credit, assuming aad advertising abroad that a deplorable financial condition exists and charging the responsibility therefor to the mal administration of republican officials. Commencing with Governor Zulick's distorted and untruthful report of the territory's finances, which has already done incalculable barm, continuing with Marshal Meade's summoning partisan grand jurors at great expense to the general government aad great detriment to the good name of Arizona in the vain hopes of securing indictments against republican federal officials for partisan purposes, and followed by the publ ca tion of a pernicious campaign document prepared by a person whose profession is evidently of the lowest order of political intrigue, The leaders of the party having out lined their plan and commenced opera tions, tbe rank and file have set up a characteristic howl of approval and are preparing exultantly for a raid upon the territorial ofices next falL all of which they expect to capture and they reck not what methods they employ, or how msch they injure the territory so long as they secure the spoils.
