J. w oi.ii.ey, Manager ABSENT-MINDED. A great mnny tunny stories arc told of tho numerous curious things that absent-minded people do, but in all of these easts wo do not recall oveu e in which the victim's mind was perpetu ally absent. But there appears to now be n genuine case of litis kind on record in Phoenix. Yesterday morning wo referred in these columns to the remarkable iilio- syiicracies which seemed to ailed the editor of tho G'ojcfterbut we wera'sutGci ently hopeful ut that time to believe tliat it was only temporary and that the edi tor would soon be restored to his proier senses. Rut yesteilay's'i68ue of tho GazeUe causes us to abandon this hope, for, if possible, his wind seems to be more ab sent than ever One of the .peculiar features of the unfortunate editor's malady is the im agination on liis part tUat somebody is jealous of him, that some one desires to rob him of hls.Smnpson locks and tho power he wields with King Kalaksua, l'rcsident Cleveland and -other princes and potentate, and in tho vacuum can Ft d by tho absence oMbo wandering mind the creen-eyed gobhu flits to and fro like a bat in a barrel, until the editor ii driven tu exclaim mildly and incoherently: The danger signal is hoisted; the "states men" hio on .the run. Ebe liltkel-lu-tbe-slot politician dV-u't run the aflalrs of Arizona wo are glad t say. Tbo Gazette li amply able to attend to Its own i flair., and come to think, wo don't .arc J any "stBlesmeuV advice. , It will re quire something morn than "publle recep tion' and brats b-nds to suture appointments to office In Arizona. Tno falling leaves of discontent to 1 where sleeps .the to lltlral schemes of Arizona. Decay anil .dry rot will 'lark their political future. It loots us though the Undershot boom bad flz zltd. such frothy propositions usually die young. Then after exhausting himself in these mad ravings he appears for a mo ment to enjoy a lucid interval, but only for an inttunt. Says the editor: Jealousy should always give away to the country's good. Hut the absent mind seems then to soar farther away than ever for the edi tor lapses back hopelessly into his former state and writes the following unintelligent item: A criespnndcnt wants to know which Is the best time to sell hoises. Well, we should think tho best time is when people want to buy. ' Tho friends of the afflicted gentle man, and the writer is one of them, deeply sympathize with iiim in his mis fortune and hopo that Cleveland will send film to Patagonia or some other quiet place, whero a four-years' resi dence may restore him to his absent mind. From a scientific point of view, however, the cneo is an interesting one, and it will afford some of the new-fangled meemeric-faith-Christian science healers a subject for experiment with out running Iho risk of damaging any EX-PRESIDENT HAYES. Tho death of ox-President Hayes, which tho telegraph announces this morning, removes from tho worldly stage a man whose demise will be gen erally mourned. Even the strong partisans on tho op posite side will accord to him tho credit of having given a peaceful, business like administration, and at the end of his term of having us quietly stepped aside for his successor. After Hayes was seated there was none of the partisan.strife on his behalf for another term he simply herved tho people na their chief executive to the best of his ability, and ut tho end of a period of four years of public life he re sumed his business at his old home in Ohio, whero he has since resided as a common citizen. Ho has not posed as an cx-picsideiit, hn has pone humbly nnd quietly about his regular avocation, like any other business man, and at the last national encampment of the Grand Army of tho Republic marched with tho common soldiers, while the grand commander and tho chiet executive reviewed tho great column of veterans. The traits of benevolence, the peace loving qualities, and the personal char acter of Rutherford 15. Hayes will, now that he is dead, endear him to even his partisan enemies. A good and a kind man has gone. Peace to his ashes 1 THE FUTURE. OF PHCEN1X. There can no lunger bo any doubt as to tho future development of tho city of I'hmnix. That question is as firmly settled as it will bo five years hence when blocks seven and eight stories high pierco tho azure blue of tho balmy sky. Within the last sixty dnys a quarter of a million dollars worth of city real estate has changed hands at advanced figures. The town Is full of conserva tive business men eager to invest in real estate and embark in busines.4 pur suits. Within the last Fix months at least n million dollars of capital has found its way into Phoenix, and tho representatives of not less than a mill ion moro aro now on the ground ready to bring their money here at once. A number of the most prominent business corners, not onlyon Washing ton but on Adams street, have been sold within a few weeks and not less than $300,00j worth of buildings are now in course of erection or ready to begin immediately. And yet there is no boom. This is n steady, quiet growth, the result of a healthy demand for every building now being erected. Plucnix is the natural supply point for the entire southwest, and the rail roads are not slow in discovering this tact. Tho Santa Fe will be in Phoenix during the present year, the Southern Pacific will come and the Hock Island and Denver & Rio Grande are both headed this way. Two electric lines of street railway are being constructed, etone sidewalks are being laid on the principal streets, and all of the advantages of a, metro politan city will soon be enjoyed. It is predicted by people acquainted with the history and growth of Denver and Los Angeles tha in five years Phoe nix will bo larger than either. Aud why not? We havo more advantages than both of those cities combined. Without question now is the timo to invest in Phwuix. The city is attract ing tho attention of the whole country, and during tho year thousands of peo ple and millions of dollars will come into Phoanix, tho peerless princess of the great Salt Hiver valley. THE GAZETTE'S INCONSISTENCY. While the Gazette is usually incon sistent and incoherent in its state ments, yet yesterday morning's issue ap peared to be more so than when the editor sticks to ids shears instead of his pencil. The Gazette in its efforts to manage both tho Republican and Democratic parties runs great danger of finding it self in the lamentable condition of the renowned Peter Kitchen, and we ad vise it to get on one side or the other of the political fenco and stay tliero. It requires a good deal bigger man than any person connected with tho Gazette to successfully run even one party at least unless he gives it his undivided attention and we hope our brethren of tho Gazette will take this suggestion in the same spirit in which it is written, that of the kindliest friendship. When tho editor of tho Gazette first graped his Fabcr night before last, he seemed to feel that the whole future of the Republican party devolved upon his shoulders, ond proceeded to write tho following paragraph : There aro more narrow-minded, Jea'ous Re publicans in Fhctnlx.that In any other section In tho American union. This Is one reaion why the Republican party never succejds, tho factof tho nutter ii th y urn not entitled to success. Now tho above is innocent enough and if it had stopped there possibly n few deluded people might have been impressed with tho greatness and wisdom of the sage who presides over tho pasto pDt of our morning con temporary. lint ho failed to comprehend this fact and that is the weak point which we desiro to call to hla attention. After giving the Republicans tho above ad vice it occurred to him that as an al leged Democratic paper, the Gazette ought to give that party a little warning also, and this is the way ho docs it: Judga Ilarnes says "Dunbar doesn't run tho Deinocratio party of Arizona and ho will find this out some time." We want to tell tho Judge that we lay no claim to this honor, but we want to Impress upon tho gemloman from Plm that wo will ree that ho doesn't run It. Tho Oazetio has always advocated Democratic success aud always wlil. Will tho gentleman from lima take the stand ami make a like as sertion? Wo want Mr. Names to understand now and forever that ho cannot bom tl o De mocracy of Arizona. Sensible men usually known here and when to call a halt, and we take this opportunity to say that no political mar plot can dictate the policy of the Arizona De mocracy. liiit how differently tho two para graphs are worded. In the first political jealousy is denounced; in the second the wholo kettle is kicked over and jealousy runs out led hot all over the editorial table! Tho fact is, tliero is no Republican jealousy that any Republican has heard of and consequently there was no oc casion for the first paragraph j but os to the last there does appear to be con siderable jealousy on tho part of the Gazette towards u very large and respect able Democratic following in the ter ritory, and if the editor of that paper fails to pull the mote out of his own eye ho is liable to get stepped under foot. Tiik Rei'uiu.ican is sorry that Judge Barnes has angered tho only newspa'per in the world that runs all political par ties, but so long as he maintains the respect of the Democrats we do not ao prehend that he will 6iitTer. The Gazelle should toko some of its own advice, else, we repeat, its ex perience may bo similar to that of .Mr. Kitchen, the distinguished sojourner in Sonora, eon-ell known to the people of Arizona. THE KEELEY CURE. Not much has been said by the news papers lately about the Keeley cure. Tlie novelty having worn off, the fam ous asylum for inebriates and its nu merous branches have ceased to inter est the reporters because the subject has grown to be nn old ono to news paper readers. Nevertheless, observa tion of the net results of what has been called "the gold cure" must continue to be of the utmost importance. Henry Wood has just written an interesting paper on tho subject. He announces unequivocally his faith in the ellicacy of the Keeley cure, but in an extended discussion of the subject presents some views, not altogether new, but which are nevertheless interesting. Mr. Wood insists that Scores and hundreds of educated men of character and veracity who In the past have fallen Into slavery to the appetlto for stlmul ents, give their unequivocal testimony as to thilr complete emancipation. The palieuts include representatives from all classes. Many who for years had bravely battled In vain with their Insatiable and Intangible foe, come forth, after a few wee's' treatment, fren and reliant, with all craving for stimulants eradicated. Men and women, naturally noble, gifted and generous, who have been reduced to moral and physical wreeks by the burning passion, havo their fetters broken and aro re stored to themselves, their friends and society. In the presenco of thousands of liv ing testimonials to the ellicacy of the Keeley cure, Mr. Wood thinks that the question of its success is no longer debatable. It is estimated that not less than 100,000 persons, heretofore 'more or less addicted to the excessive use of intoxi cants and opium in its various forms, have been successfully treated at the various inebriate sanitariums where the Keeley euro is administered. This may be an exaggeration, but if half this number hao beon enabled by re tort to tho treatment to cast off the shackles iinpoeed by the appetite for strong drink and narcotic's tbo author of their regeneration must rank as a ruib lic benefactor. Tiik Kwuiilican un hesitatingly lends its endorsement to what it believes to be a blessing to mankind. II the Keeley cure has ex ercised even a helpful influence in cor recting the numerous evils imposed upon society by drunkenness, nil good men should be thankful tor even a Ii ttlo aid in a work that has heretofore been attended by small success. NOT A TRUE FRIEND. The Gazette in its recent issues clearly proves that its friendship for the terri tory is not of the kind that means statehood and prosperity. It attacks every measure for the good of the peoplo when that measuro docs not emanate trom its coterie ot pros pective and would-be pap suckers. Neither are Mark Smith's chances for senator improved by the attitudo of the Gazette in its opposition to the will of the neople unon a qiifxtinn of on much importance as statehood, for he will be charged witli influencing its columns. Tho Gazette worked hard for Mark Smith during tho campaign and the friendship of its editor and that quon dam statesman is a matter of public record, theiefore it must bo that Mark sanctions the course of the Gazette in its opposition to tho development of tho territory and immediate statehood. Rut as Republicans, from a party standpoint, we like to seo it. It shows tho peoplo tho real attitude of certain would-be Democratic bosses, who, how ever, luve not sufficient influence, luckily, to retard the growth of the territory, and they show their hand at a most opportupo time. We believe, however, that it is neces sary to secure all the support possiblo for etateiiood, aid we call upon tho peo ple, irrespective of party, to join in the work. Rut the Democratic party is certainly handicapped when its organ sets itself up as an obstructionist, and the party must ba responsible for its ut terances, for one of tho members of the Territorial Democratic Central Com mittee is a large owner in ihe Gazette and active member of the committee; and the paper is presumably acting under the instructions of the Central Committee. It therefore becomes the duty of Chairman Parker to state whether or not the Gazette in it role as nn obstruc tionist and kicker is voicing the senti ment of the party. Further silence from the chairman aiid.secretury of the Democratic committee on this subject will bo taken as evidence that the com mittee has changed il" mind and that the Gazette is voicing its sentiment in its recent editorials repudiating tho ac tion of the Democratic committee lately taken towards statehood. The Democratic party is now making a recoid that it must soon go before the people with. ELECTION ANOMALIES. The Ciiicago Tribune observes that tho vote of Nevada fell off from 10,031 in 187G to 10,605 in 1602, and ndds: It Is singular that tho people should submit as patiently at tl cy do to such an absurd an omaly as that Illinois, with clghty-cven times tho population of Nevada, snould have only eight times as many presidential votes. The matter is one which congrets can ami should intend to by annexing the Territory of Utah, with JOS.OOO people, to Keradt, with l,s 1.5.000, thus making a stato with a rcsicctablo popu lation. The matter of annexation we presume would have to bo submitted to the state itself ; liut Nevada should not object to it. It is not fair that Illinois with 87 times the population of Nevada should have but 8 times as many votes in the electoral college. The absurd anomaly of which the Tribune complains is even more striking when we come to consider that little Nevada with her 10,005 votes has an equal representation in the United States Senate with New York with its i 1,500,000 votes. Tliero are some other inequalities of this kind in our electoral system which ought to be corrected, but are not likely to be under a Democratic and Solid South administration. A large percent age of tho people of Mississippi nnd other southern states are disfranchised, but this is not permitted to make any dillerence in the congressional repre sentation of these states. If we are to remedy matters with reference to the borough state of Nevada we Bhould c.iBt about nnd Bee what can bo done in the samo direction down south where tho emergency is even more urgent. A NEW CHARTER. The defeat of the charter lately sub mitted to ttje people by an overwhelm ing vote must not be taken as an in dication that the people are opposed to to a measure of this kind. Wo need a new charter and we want to take in the additions, and it was simply the bungling manner in which tho charter was framed together with the autocratic powers which it con veyed that caused its ignominious de feat. Tho legislature will soon assemble and a charter should bo framed and adopted at a public meeting of the citi zens to be passed by the legislature as soon as that body is ready for business. Tub Republican suggests that steps be taken immediately with that end in view. Phoenix is no longer a village and a charter adapted to her needs should be at once adopted. OPERATIONSONTHERIOQRANDE The thorough measures being adopted by the War Department to expel tho Mexican revolutionists from federal soil and to guard the Texan frontier against further invasion by these belligerents show that the administration does not propose to allow United States territory to be made a base of operations for a band of conspirators against a country with which' our own enjoys peaceful relations. The campaign against these sanguinary adventurers should be brief, vigorous nnd pOWiIvp. AI1p from the obligations imposed upon the United States to observe tho international right of Mexico, it is of paramount im portance for this coutitry to continue to cultivate only tho friendliest relations with our southern neighbor. Fkw.fiklps of enterprise have proven as attractive of late as the building of electric street railroads and the con version of horse lines into railways op erated by electricity. At the beginning of 1802 there were only 335 electric street railroads in tho United States, whereas there aro now 510. Tne in crease of 132 is a gain of about 3-1 per tent, a. most extraordinary rate of growth.; The time seems not fur dis tant when nearly all of the street rail roads In the country, except a com paratively small number of big cable lines will be operated by electric power, and the day of the street car horse is fast drawing to a clocu. Tun asiateuk actrrsH who does not know that the dagger is pointed begins to equal in numbers the sapient youth who "ditfu't know it was loaded." Only a few days ago a mock tragedy in San Francisco was made a real one by an impassioned creature who drove a knife into the heart of one of the company; now the same act of criminal folly is reported in Elgin, III. Ladies who are given to this realistic style of 'acting should reserve theuinelvcd nnd their homicidal talents for the professional stage. They are waited on mere ama teur material. Tiik Boi:d of Supp-rvisors cannot afford to keep the people in the dark as to their actions during the coming year. The plea of economy will not go down. The peoplo want to know what is being done and if the proceedings of the board are not mad public many per sons will think there was some motive in it other than economy. , The Rni'vn I.ICAN is not an applicant for the coun ty printing and in therefore in u posi tion, on behalf of tho people, to demand that Uie re shall be no secrets in the of fice of the Hoard of Supervisors. Senator Vkst of Missouri calls Indian Commissioner Morgan "a narrow minded bigot." but there's no use get ting mad at anything Vest says. Only a little while ago he announced that he was going to institute "a war of exter mination upon tho protected in dustries," but people didn't g:t scared or angry. They knew that Vest'e arm- anient is a noisy but harmless pop' Run. Miss VinaiN'iA Faiii, daughter of tho California bonanza king, has made the greatest catch on record. She is towed the grandson of a king. To be sure that king was the last king of Poland and the grandeon wi'l never reign, but the blood is there just the same and a whole lot of hametir.to boot. Tim bride's millions will come just in time to brace up the hauteur, which is be ginning to wabbie a hi;. Cob. Skvmouii, of Illinois, proposes to bo buried alive and remain in tho gravo while a crop oi barlev is sown, grown and harvested over his cell of clay. Jin will then arise and assist in the threshing. The experiment will bs watidtcd with great interest by the students of the occult. It would be well also to watch the incoming night trains at about the timn set for the resurrection. Tut Democratic theory is that the destruction of the protective tariff would stop immigration by removing the inducement of better wages now offered to foreigners 'who come here. American workingmen will not, how ever, be satisfied with such a eolution of the problem. It would be too much like cutting off one's nose to spite his face. Men who aiu: candidates for the legislature make great professions as to what they will do for reform and "August Flower" " I inherit some tendency to Dys pepsia from ray mother. I suffered two years in this way ; consulted a number of doctors. They did me no good. I then used Rellovod In your August Flower and it was just two days when I felt great relief. I soon got so that I could sleep and eat, and I felt that I was well. That was three years ago, and I am still first class. I am never Two Days, without a bottle, and if I feel constipated the least particle a dose or two of August Flower does the work. The seauty of the medicine is, that you can stop the use of it without any bad effects on the system. Constipation While I was sick I felt everything it seemed to me a man could feel. I was of all men most miserable. I can say, in conclusion, that I believe August Flower will cure anyone of indigestion, if taken Life of Misery with judgment. A. M.
