Watered m the poUoffice at Prtocott as second-class matter. J. C. MAKTXX, Editor and rropr. K1MAL REPDBUCAN TlGKbT! rott FKESIDCNT; WILLIAM MDilET FOR TICE-rKKSIUENT: BiKRETT JLHOBART Of XevJuse TVEDXXSD1T... .JULY S, 1S96 A COKPAKISO'. The political atmosphere seems to be absorbed everywhere with restlessness, and Arizona is no excep tion to thii rule. Here, as elsewhere, however, the conditions have changed with the times. Okl and tried servants must face the changes and step aside for the new. This is due probably to a combination of circumstances, prominent among the questions being the fact that the country is in an upneavai m us political preferences, and on the other hand partisan idolatry has implvrun its race, played itself out in short. That this feeling pre Tails to-day, and is shared in its be lief by many men of stalwart demo cratic principle?. is evinced in the still undercurrent of hostility to the belief that Mark Smith is to bo again pushed o :ae front as the democratic nominee for congress, and other men equally, if not more deserving, are to be shoved aside ia consequence. That the. supposition is wall founded that Mr. Smith again seeks old time honors and from his old time followers, the prominence of his name and the prominence likewise of men who do not openly sanction it, is the best criterion to guide one that .Mr. Smith seeks the nomination and that his old time supporters do not want him. It v"U be remembered that a few weeks ago the territorial democratic convention, that selected delegates to their national meeting, UCJiaCV4 uiuiii. ' o didate for national committeeman In this move that gathering com mitted a grievious error, and the afterclap of thoir hasty action is be ing echoed back to them in tones of disapproval, and that too, by men whose fidelity to party is unques-1 tioned. The action of the territorial I convention is sifted down in its simple and true meaning in this connection as nothing more than a delicate endorsement of his candi dacy for congress, at least such is the belief of many. In the quiet ripples of disapproval heard now so generally, the question of repub licanism figures to only one extent in the candidacy of Mr. Smith. It is what has he ever done for the ter ritory or for that matter, for" his party, that warrants his entry again into the political sphere of Arizona. He has accomplished absolutely nothing, and what is more, if nom inated, his good fellowship will be played with the same old hand and hacked by the same old game as of yore. His candidacy, in short, would be uothing more nor less than an exemplification of the say ing "that he can fool all the people all the time." Mr. Smith has been a political accident of the purest type. He gained notoriety and also promi nence originally by defending the county treasurer of Cochise county, aad from that legal stroke sprang into the delegateship in one bound. During his incumbency of this office, the best reccd he ever made was by associating himself as counsel for the notorious Tham robbers in Tucs in, his services as an attorney being demanded more from a stroke of policy, in good fellowship, than actual legal merit or ability. Re cently Mr. Smith was shoved for ward in Prescott as an "attorney" of good fellowship in a prominent murder case before the court, but his persuasive manner or legal W r,d he failed for once, in his object, if in reality his object was to clear his client, or to relieve him of the stigma of the crime. When the democratic territorial ! convention in their declaration of favor for Mr. Smith's candidacy this yat, authorized him to present his name again to the people, which they did virtually mean for him to do, they committed apolitical crime they csunot substantiate, or back up in the face of tho stirring resolu tions passed by them in the same meeting. While a member of oou gress Mr. Smith hail the bill fund ing th debt of Arizona amended so as to read that the bonds of tho ter ritory were to be paid in coin, equivalent in its interpretation to mean gold, while the democratic ccuvention this year boldly and de fiantly declares for the free and un limited coiuage of silver at the ratio of sixteen to one. How these two p: ...positions can be cemented con- ' sistently into the democratic doc-, trine, we fail to figure out clearly.' Another plain and palpable propo sition, which northern Arizona democrats cannot rid their spinal column of, is the treacherous silence ' of Mr. Smith over the candidacy of J. C. Herndon, of Yavapai, two years ago, backed up by the vote ia , localities where Mr. Smith had his "big pull.' Mr. Smith not only knifed the northern candidate thon, but the blade still continues to brandish in the political sphere whenever occassion arises. The uneasy and restless feeling now prevailing over the above per- t.:. -i I r , .A eancerous disposition. While the nam of V. A. Howe is being con ir sidered for the nomination by a great number of his party, and par ticular! v bv those who refuse to bow in servility to atiy oae everlast ingly, there is no probability how ever, that ho will permit his name to go before the coining democratic convention. But the mere fact of his or any other person's aauie is but a natural conclusion to expect under the conditions prevailing iu Arizo a at present, in thisthatdoiaocracy is not founded ou autocratic princi ples, ard above all our enemies are not pinned to the unit rulo simply because a handful of men in con vention assembled say so. nvuKonioitiA as a simulate!! mSKASK. From an "Open Letter to Editors" on the above subject we quote the following: 'We have observed with regret numerous sensational stories concerning alleged mad dogs and the terrible results to human beings bitten by them, which are published from time to time in the newspapers. Such accounts frighten people into various nervous disor ders and cause brutal treatment of animals suspected of madness; and vet there is upon record a great mass of testimony from physician rthe extreme rarity or .T- drophobia even m the dog. while many medical men of wide oxperi- ence are ot the opinion mat h n uo- velops in human beings at all, it is oalv on extremely rare occasions; that tho condition of hysterical ex citement in man described by now papers as "hydrophobia" is merely a sories of symptoms, due usually to a dread of the disease, such dread be ing caused by realistic newspaper and other reports acting upon tho imaginations of persons scratched or bitteu by animals suspected of rabies. "The late Dr. Hiram Corson whose practice extonded over a period, of seventy (70) years, during which time he searched diligently for the disease in man or animal, wrote under date of January IS, lSl. "I have never had a real caso of hydro phobia.' uDr. Traill Greeu,a physician like Dr. Corsoa, accurate iu observa'ior. careful in statement, ami wnoe practice also extends ovor a !Dg period, writes under date of Janu ary 2S, ISro, I have never had a case of hydrophobia, nor have I ever seen a case'" ia the practice of other physicians. "Dr. Matthew Woods who has leou in quest of the disease for twenty years, and who during two summers personallv visited ovorv case re ported in Philadelphia, asserts that , , ttr : no never saw nyuropaoui;-oil-.u man or animal, and although mx years ago at the conclusion cf a pa- tw on the subject read belore a large audience, he offered 5100 to snv iMrson bnnuimr him sucu a patient, yet so far no one hasclaiuKnl the reward. Dr. Woods further more adds that although he has questioned many physicians on the subject he has not yet found one who has ever seen hydrophobia either in man or animal "At the Philadelphia dog pound where, on au average, over six thou saud (6,000) vagrant dogs are taken up annually, and where tho catch ers and keepers are frequently bit teu while haudliag them, not oue case of hydrophobia has occurred during its entire history of twenty five vears. iu which time about 150. 000 dogs were handled.

Tho Boer woman could not con oeivotho idea of having a master. In poverty most dire sho has had from infancy at least ono black serv ant. Like her mother before her, sho would poo her daughters perish with hunger before sho would allow them to go as domes tio servants. Thoy are in her oyes tho equals of tho most high born dames In any land, and servants they shall nover bo.
