SALT RIVER IIERALD.
Katarday Nrplrniher 81, 1S78 Independent Candidate for Delegate to Congress. King S. Woolsey. attention Xorcmber S. 1878. The Star calls upon the people of Tucson to organize the minnte-men, in pursue thieves and murderers and hang them when caught. 'We return thanks to the papers that have kindly mentioned our en Isrseineat and the improved appear ance of the Heraid in its new dress. A call signed Ty the principal busi ness men of Frcseott for a nominat ing, convention to be held in that city u the jth imt:iht has been issued. It iys that a better selection can be m lie by the representative men of Yavapai county than by the practice of voluntary candidacy. This meth od of selecting candidates is much the better way ,"as then their views on certain questions of interest to all can be ascertained beforehand. The ronventioa will only make nomina tions for the Legislature. The Sacramento (Cal.) Record-Union thus speaks of its semi-weekly issues, and the advantage derived over the plan of issuing once a weok : "Our subscribers receive the fullest and freshest news through the semi-weekly issues of the Union, and the mani fest advantages of this mode of publi cation are shown ia the steady and vigorous growth of that form of the Iierord-U nion. The truth is that the old style weekly is obsolete, the im proved manner of transmitting intelligence-, airf the increased quantity of news available, having become too much for it, The semi-weekly, as our experience has shown, is the only form in which anything like a sub stitute for the daily paper can be is sued. The candidates for the different county offices are about all out Their names will be found in the advertising columns of this paper. But little more than a month and a half remains before election, and it is time the people began considering the qualifications of the different can didates. The efficiency of a govern ment lies in its officials, and if the people choose wisely a good admin istration follows. Each candidate is heartily endorsed as the very best man for the position. This is a question to be decided at the polls, for just as certain as the citizen takes an independent thought of the matter the best man will receive the certifi cate of election. At the last election the vote in several cases was very close. In the coming election it is expected several of the candidates will run an even race, and in such cases it is the duty of every person to go to the polls and cast bis vote for the man, in his opinion, best quali fied to perform the duties dependent on him. See that your name is on the great register, as only a few days remain for that purpose an it should be attended to without delay. Seven months ago we launched the IIer.u-d enterprise upon the uncertain sea of journalism with considerable fear and trembling, realizing that we possessed neither the age or experi. ence usually required to make such ventures a success, but with courage and determination we laid our hands to the helm and set sail alongside other concerns supposed to be so much better manned, and notwith standing the unfair and uncharitable efforts of soma of our cotemporaries to run us ashore, we are still sailing with colors flying and ballast su ffl cient, we think, to enible us to baffle all coming storms. Financially, we have succeeded beyond our most san guine expectations. The Hsrald outfit is out of debt and has on its books a large and first-class credit which is rapidly being turned into cash. That we have made mistakes we are free to confess, and who of all earthly beings does not sometimes err? Our friends have been forbear iug and have given good counsel, and we thank them for it and shall bene fit thereby. That we have enemies, we know, but we do not fear or care for them. AVe shall give all our time and talent to the Herald and hop9 to go on to a still greater success and have no doubt of obtaining it, even though it may be through a free ex hibition of "cheek" and the exercise of "pure cussedness." We thank the citizens of Phenix and the friends of the Herald generally for the earnest and liberal support they have given it, which has enabled us to enlarge and improve the appearance of the paper. With continued support and putronagc on. the part of this commu nity in particular and the friends of the paper generally, wa shall no doubt make the Herald the largest paper in the Territory within a brief length of time, a pride to Phenix and a power in protecting and building up her interciti. A PLEA FOR CHILD-MURDER. At first thought there is some thing horrible in the caption of this article, but in this day of advancing reason, when the existence of a Deity ia in great dispute and every princi ple of religion resulting from a belief in a God is threatened with annihila tion, such a thing as child-murder should be regarded as a very tame tame affair. There are very grave reasons, too, why child-murder should be tolerated and become widely prev alent A few of these we desire to set forth, and we hope that ia any community where perfect license in assailing the Divine character und attributes is allowed and indulged in there will be a like disposition to bear with us in so slight a matter as the "strangling of the innocents." It is a well known though as yet an unaccounted for fact that among human births the female element largely predominates over the male . Were it in the power of parents generally very few, if any, females would be procreated. The reason for this lies in the social status of woman as fixed by the common laws of society. The sex is made virtual ly powerle ss in raising itself upward from social adversity. In reducing its members to such adversity nearly every man's hand is used and in keep--ing them down every woman joins all her efforts of might, mind and tongue with the sterner sex. This being the state of things, is it at all wonderful that parents do not desire female children ? The later years are devel oping a most decided and injurious moral laxity ia the marriage tic. In some of the states and territories get ting married i3 so frequent and pro miscuous that it is accounted as little of as throwing off a last month's waistcoat to put on a new one to-day. In? these evanescent bonds, when broken, woman is the principal suf ferer. Generally all the reproaches, if there be any, attaches to her and no matter how proflieatethe husband may have been, the fact of her being mated with him casts a stain upon her that death alone can efface. Should there be children resulting from such broken marriages the care of them usually falls entirely upon the moth. er, or tailing tins sue is separaica from them ana aoomea ny sucn a separation to a life of anxiety and hopeless misery. The care ot children lntcnering so much with fashionable enjoyments is another reason why child-murder should be generally practiced. This, however, we believe is the last among the causes which impel many women to destroy their unborn children. It it be true that we are amenaoie to no power except our own convictions of right and wrong-for our actions in life, thsn it is clear that much of the most severe human misery may be avoided bv the eeneral practice of child-murder. Were we a Colonel Iustersoll we would embody this mat ter in our onslaughts on Christianity and urge it as a means of 'mercy to- wasd the millions of u nborn humani ty who, with its merciful quietus, would swiftly pass without any expe. rience of life's pains and miseries in to its ultimate and inevitable end, oblivious nothingness.
