MJCGRATII, PROP Congressman Toola of Montana, when speaking on the territorial admission bill, recited the woes of Montana in an elo quent manner, and hia statement of facta applies to every territory as well ns Mon tana. In telling what congress had done for Montana he said: It has given us a system of courts in herently wrong, and which can never be made suitable to large communities. it nas regulated tho number of our judges, grossly inadequate in every in stance, resulting in me cieluy and in many cases the denmj of justice. It has arbi trarily fixed the time when our local leg' in) at ij ix? must meet and adjourn, to our great damage and inconvenience. It has denied us the authority to call an extra session of our legislature without the consent of the president, adding un told hmdens lo a dependent, people. It luis reserved the right to invalidate any law which our legislature may pass, there by destroying that full faith and credit which .tr legislnture oujrht to command. It his hoc-id us hand and foot by a law which restrict? these growing nnd ambi tious communities in the expenditure ol money for public improvements. It has declared what we shall teach in our public school", and manifested a lack of confidence in us in other instances of legislation too numerous to mention. It has attempted to tifie our industries. by prohibiting nstrom selling our mining properties in foreign markets, thus laving upou us an embargo not hot no by citizens of tho states. It has exempted a railroad and the im provement on its right of way for 8D miles from taxation, furnishing another evidence of the gross inequality of citizen ship in and out of the territory. It ha withheld from us our dowry of lands which belongs to our school funds, nnd re'used to give us any kind of a su pervision or control over it until we become a sute, and then sets deliberately to work to prolong the time when that event shall happen. It has professed to give u a represrnta tive in the lower house of congress, hut deuies to us a vote, the only element of representation which gives character or iu fi tienen to a member. It has left us without any kind of repre sentation in the senate, and remita us to the beggerly methods of tha lobbyist. It has imposed on us with an iron band the obligations Hud burdens of citizenship, while it withholds its corresponding bene fits by steadily denying to us participation in the training of legislation and the right of Mi.Trnge in national legi.-dation. It has refused to appropriate tho sal aries provided 'y law tor the hungry of ficials wiiom it has beeu pleased to stud us aud compels tuem to accept a measly stun in full compensation, notwithstanding an overflowing treasury. It has refused to appropriate sufficient money to extend the public surveys in the territories, but has doled out annually its driblets, which have otttinies been covered back into the treasury, leaving our bound aries undefined and our titles insecure. It has failed to cause to be surveyed, se lected and conveyed to tho grantees the lauds falling within railroad grants within the the territory, as required by law, whereby millions of acres of laud owned by rich corporations have escaped taxa tion. It has persistently refused to pass laws by which the limber or timber lauds in the territories, except Washington, may be leased or purchased, professing, however, to give the righ, to actual settlers to cut and remove the same for domestic pur poses, while it has hedged in this privilege with an odious and impracticable system of j rules and regulations which has resulted in harassing our citizens witn expensive civil and criminal proceedings, based wholly on the ex-parto statements of a crouching and obsequous special agent or spy, who has been taught to believe that his term of ofiice will be measured by the extent of his activity in stirring up strife. It has by the organization of these ter ritories invited the settlement und occu pancy of the frontier, apon the promise and obligation that our personal property should be protected against depredations by hostile Indians. Those promises have been honored more in the breach than in the observance. The history of our early settlement is red with the blood of the pioneers who blazed the trails of civiliza tion in these remote lands by the lurid light of their burning homes, which went down in ashes before the merciless savage Millions of dollars of unpaid claims, mil dewed by age and growing out uf these atrocities, are piled up, while the heroes of these troublous times, overcome with the weight of years and no longer ablo to conquer their feelings, have gone to join the silent majority, leaving Jestttute wid owi and orphans to keep alive before con gress the memory of their trials aud tribu lationa. Verily, the cruelty of congress cuts as deeply as the scalping knife. It has suffered to be fastened upou us the odious system of carpet-bag rule and dora iuatton which seems to inhere in the terri torial form of government. The ad.nin'i tratioa of President Garfield and the pre ent administration were alike bound by party platforms to relieve us from this ob noxious ays'em, but both have failed. We know our capacity for local self-gov ernment. We remember that "srndlng hither a swarm of officials," etc., was one of the causep which lead to our declaration of independence. From that day to this carpet-baggers have been odious, and their presence among ns is and ever will be as poisonous and destructive to good government as the insidiout growth of communism. Tradition tells us that the wise men all came from the East, and so our republi can friends, unwilling to depart from the teachinga of the past, determined that his tory should repeat itself, and proceeded to treat us in their own good time to a fine assortment of political dudes. SonW of these hothouse specimens, who were too frail to stand transplanting to a northern clime, soon gave up their commissions and returned to the genial influences of their own civilization. Others, holding relig iously to the doctrine that a federal officer should neither die nor resign, stayed with us, became acclimated, and promise in yeara to come to develop into tolerably good und useful citizeus. But under dem ocratic supremacy we find that quito an iuvnsion has been made on what was sup pced to be nu inflexible fact. Instead of the wise men coming from the East, wo now learn that they came from the South. Kentucky furnished us a governor, Ten nessee a chief justice, Louisiana an associ ate justice and a surveyor general, Texas an associate justice, and Mississippi, Mary land und Tennessee each an Indian agent. Be it far from mu to reflect upon the in tegrity of any gentleman sent to us by the administration, or by implication to refl ;ct upon tbesection whence ho came. These conjiderations do not disturb or annoy us. The insolence of office consequent upon these alien appointments, and the lack of coufidence thereby manifested in us con stitute the gruvauian of the affront. Time, ins'ead of healing, simply intensi fies it. Nearly every day added to the score of time brings some new appunt ment from abroad, thus adding insult to injury. Apes of forgiveness cannot con done it, and Statehood alone can prevent its recurrence. Hereditary, My father died of Cancer, and the name trouble develope d near my right eye in 1883. It was at first a strawberry color, but changed to purple, aud grew to the size of a partridiTS egg. My riy'.it eye became much inflamed, and the dreadful disease was rapidly wasting my life away. I used quite K number of remedies but without benefit. At this ciisis I begun taking Swift's specifiV. The improvement was apparent in a few duys, and 1 contin ued to us it until the cancer was entirtly gone and uay health fully restored, un 1 I know that S. S. S. alone did it, because 1 left oil' ail other treatment. It saved me from this hereditary cancer, which went away over two years ago and left not a sign, and I owe my life, under Providence, to S. S. S. Mus. Lacha E. Dkloa.w Dawson, Ga., Sept. 2(i. IS?. During the early part of the past spring (18 Í8) my body was covered with boils. At one time morn than fifty were counted on my body and limbs. My face was not exempt from the painful trouble. The us ual remedies would do me no good. Just why I began taking S. S. S. I do not know but almost immediately I began to im prove. I took nearly three bottles, and fouud tuysvlf entirely well. It was your medicine which effected the cure when ev erything eUe had failed. Yours truly, J. II. Fohduam. Staunton, Va.. Aug 1, 1888. Holla. AniiicviixE. S. C. Oct. 20, 1883. I was the victim for five or six years of the worst boils that I ever saw, which the doctors failed to cure. I began S. S. S and in a short time the poison was driven out of my system, aud not a 6igu of boils or any other blood trouble has returned. I recommend S. S. S. to everybody. J. G. EuwAitns Swift's Specific ia entirely a vegetable medicine, and is the only medicine which has ever cured btool poison, sciuful blood humors and kindred diseases, send fcr our books o,) blood and skin diseases mailed free. The Swift Si'ei-fic Co. Irawer 3, Atlanta, Ga Black Range: About üfó.OUO worth of sulphides were shipped from the Black Range lixiviation works this week. This shipment will give the company good re turns over and above all expenses of the late run. Of late there has been several needed improvements addtd to the works and several new tubs will soon be placed in the leaching department, all of which will add greatly to the capacity of the mill aud render leaching and extracting inore expeditious. The sulphides pro duced by these works a.-e shipped to New York and New Jersey as a much better price is oblainud there than at other points. It is the intention of the com pany to soon make regular weekly ship ments. Indeed it looks a though the Rus sell process, when in the hands of an elli cient manager, is a good and reliable pro cess for this camp. NEWS NUGGETS. Tartana Items of News Gathered from Onr Exchanges amd ot her Aoureea. Tucson Citizen: The wheat planted on the mesa as an experiment during the con tinued wet weather about six weeks ago gives promise of reaching perfect maturity and yielding a good crop. Mr. Siewer who has eight acres planted says the ground now has absorbed a sufiicicnt amount of water to make a crop sure and he ia feel ing good over it. renzo Cubada writes from Atlixco that white visiting a pueblo in that district he saw an immense animal flying through the air that measured four "reatas," whose wings were of groat size, and in the center oj which there was a whitish cone. In its passage the noise made by ta wings re sembled thunder. The monster appeared to have come from Popocatepetl. New Mexican: Wm. Carson, well and favorably known here as the son of the fa mous scout, Kit, died at his home in Fort Garland, on Saturday last tinder most pe culiar circumstances. On Fridny he went into his stable and as he passed a stall one of the horses kicked at him striking his re volver in the scabbard, which was dis charged, the ball entering the thick part of the thigh, ranging down and lodged near the knee joint. Dr. Gale of Alamo sa was called und probed for the ball, which ho found had passed through the knee joint, lodging in the bones below the knee, where it would be difficult to ex tract if. Owing to the bad condition of Carson'j system the doctor expressed doubts as to his recovery. He decided, however, to return the next day and am putate the limb, if the man was able to stmd the operation. Within half an liter after the doctor's departure, howev er, Carson died. He leaves n wife and four children. Folsom Idea: Every one should see thai lion skin, measuring eight feet from tip to tip. It was killed near Briggs cañón by .lose Higino Ruibal, and is now on exhi bition at Drew & Phillips'. Tne Arizona legislature has passed and the governor has signed the bill removing the ca itol from Preseott to Phenix. The legislature adjourned last Monday to meet at Pheuii next Thursday. Virgiira Enterprise: The Gold nnd Curry boys who are running cars on top have quite a grade to run on .from the wovl.s to the dump. They have brakes on their runs and ride down at a good jog, but often it id dif'icult to restrain the car by apr.lj ;TK' an iron brake ngi'.inst an iron wheel. To i;kc more power to the brake they have used sand, which worked pretty well, but Joe UlaKcly.day belore yesterday, tried to improve upon sand, and stealing Ziiumer's resin he applied it libeiaily to tho brake of his coach. Gathering an au dience around him, to see how it worked, he set sail for the dump. The iron heat ing melted the resin and made a fine lu bricating oil, and Joe sailed liks a shot. He struck the stopping post and the car stopped and iunnetiately changed its shape, and Joe went on down tho dump ike a mass of pork. The audience brought tho pieces to town and had them :arefully sjwed together, uud hopes are en tertained that Joe will be himself agaiu in time to accept a deputysbip. Silver Belt: The productiveness of the lands of tho Salt river valley and adjacent thereto in Gila county is phenotuinsl and some of the results obtained by thorough cultivation would hardly lie credited in the less favored sections ot the east. J. C. Norion is one of our uiost successful farm ers. Last season one or nis principal crops was potatoes, and he succeeded in producing two crops from the same land. His first planting in Marcri produced four ton lo the ucre, and from the second planting in August he realized three, tons per acre. If there is any spot in the coun try that can beat that record we wouid like to hear of it. A soldiers' monument has been erected in tl-' Raton cemetery by Sedgwick post No. . Prof. Powell recomnwrius to congress- that the first experimental reservoirs for testiug the merits of irrigation be con structed along tho Jcmez river iu Berna lillo county. The Santa Fe road has taken off its col lectors and the conductors again juggle the ticket punch. Socorro Times: The snow fall in the mountains and generally over the territo ry is unusually large this winter. This portends an increased water supply and a generation of moisture that will probably also increase the rainlull next summer, a fact which means much lor the grazing, agricultural and other iuterests ot New Mexico. In many parts of the territory the snow has piled uiany feet deep and each additional storm now adds to its vol uuie.
