Assailing the Courts.
More in sorrow than anger the
Post-Dispatch protests the Republic's
persistent effort to undermine public
confidence in the Federal supreme
court. That newspaper sweepingly
assails the court and all who counsel
respect for it and fair judgement of
judicial motives and decisions as foes
of popular rights.
What is the caus" of this railing'?
What has the supreme court done?
In what decision have the supreme
judges willfully betrayed the Minne
sota rate case? It is as much the
sworn duty of the judges to defend
individual and states' rights as cor
porate and federal rights. Have
they any less regard for popular
rights and constitutional law than
state officials, or citizens, or even the
Republic? Are Chief Justice White,
Justices Harlaa and Hughes and their
associates dishonorable men? Are
they false to their oaths and in a
conspiracy to betray the people? Is
any one of them a corrupt servant of
special interests?
Yet the Republic without specific
charges or remedies . wantonly fo
ments popular distrust of the court!
It appeals to passion, prejudice and
unthinking discontent by branding
the court as the bulwark of the in
terests and the judges as conspirators
against the free government. Noth
ing in the Republic's long career of
subservience to special interests has
been so deadly an assault upon real
public interests as this mistaken bid
for popularity, this reckless sacrifice
of principle for applause of the mob.
The Post-Dispatch welcomes the con
demnation of all those who denounce
opposition to those insidious attacks
upon American institutions.
If the democratic parly accepts
such anarchistic leadership it is
doomed to defeat. St Louis Post-
Dispatch.
All honor to the hardy pioneers,
and may they drop off more and more
lowly. "By their fruits shall ye
know them. " Their lives are toil,
the fruit thereof toll, and toil their
sole reward, up to date.'
In this connection it would be well
to remember that "The Mother of
the Camp of Clifton," Mrs. Baker,
lives in the Greenlee Camp, and is
the youngest and sprightliest woman
in Greenlee County. S,he seriously
compromised herself 10 years ago by
marrying the unworthy

Concerning Argonauts
When you have something to say,
say it. Per contra, when you have
nothing to say, say it also. This week
I have nothing to say, so I am going
to say it eloquently.
I have been thinking of the old
timers who braved the Indians to
come in here and search for gold in
the mountains and found copper as
well and who, poor fellows, endured
the hardships of scant and poor
"grub," of no more variety than the
four essent ials: bicoo, beans, flour
and coffee; and defended their lives
and tlieir provender as they toiled,
against the pitiless Apaches.
Light reward have they had, poor
old fellows, and one by one they are
dropping off, almost unnoticed; sever
ed so lonff from ties of kindred, they
go over the border unwept, unhonored
and unsung.
iiut t hey are worthy of honor, these
men, for they have blazed the way to
mike this section habitable for us
all.
One of the earliest arrivals here
was .Mason cJreenlee. A kindly, gen
erous, humorously pleasant soul, too
mild of nature to be a typical Argo
naut, yet held in high esteem by all
who knew him.
He did not live to reap the reward
of his years of privation and toil, but
his comrades honored him in life by
naming the Gold District after him,
and the people through their repre
sentations erected to him an endur
ing monument in the 1 partition and
naming of our rich new County of
Greenlee, the youngest county, yet
the 4th in wealth of the new State,
the sun-kissed land of Arizona.
I have lived for years in the Green
lee Camp, and knew "Mase" Greenlee
and his comrades well, and they are
a group typical of the old-timer: the
latch string always out, the wayfarer
always welcome to a bite and a bed, i
or to stop a week if he wished.
