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
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
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

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-

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
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

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

hopes of securing indictments against
republican federal officials for partisan
purposes, and followed by the publ ca
