Tho Tucson Star attempts to reflect discredit upon the integrity and moial . worth of Hon. Marcus A. Smith, presenLdolegate tQcongre83. In ita at tempt to hooat X. 0. Murphy, tho 10 publican aspirant to congieaaional hon ors, the Star says: '" The ox-Eoyeruor no doubt made " tlie most active and successful delc 11 gate Aiizona has over had. Ho ac " compliahcd mo;e in two yoars than "has "Mink Smith in hia live terms in " congress, and it it said that Murphy s " should bo ci edited with ovory mil, " favo two, passed during Smith's pros ' ent term in congress, while Smith " diow tho pay." "Active and Bucceietul delegate" is good! It is.not eurmised that the gen tleman wui asleep or inactive; he was the creation of a syndicate of lobbeis vrhose purpose it was to loot the treas ury of Aiizona; they owned tho then acting governor, L. C. Hughes, who co operated with tho guerrilla who, at tho dictates of tho syndicate was toget through congress an omnibus bill to legalizo scmo of the most flagiant bond steals ever perpetrated upon ait inno cent people. Mr. Murphy succeeded, he must have .ucen "active"; tho Tuc son Star applauded, the public damned the net. That Murphy was enterpris ing no one will dispute, when it iB known that the bill was put through congress in tho laco of a supreme court decision which had declared the bonds void. This act alone signalized Mur 'phy's forced retirement from Aiizona polities, and iiad tho Starjoven thcin fluence of tho Pick and Drill, it would not bo able to raise Mr. Murphy from out tho filthy slough of politics into which ho has irredeemably sunk. The Star, Mr. Murphy's organ, con tinues: " Tho succeFS of Murphy will depond " largely upon the democratic candi " datev Should it bo Smith, ho could " win by a large majority, on the mat " ter of simple iccord, for the compari " son will show thai Smith is one of the " most worthless, indolent and unre " liable burdens Arizona has ever as- "" burned to carry." poY IiaT-nfcrtrtrOTtr-tliCicsardr the Star feed that lie assumes virtue, enterprise and loliability? Tho prc . sumption of the Star iB an insult to trio intelligence of the massca of this great Territory; for whom does he speak when ho eesaya to vilify their trusted representative to congress, one who has been five times honored with his pres ent position, never having proved re creant to a trust imposed, something The Okb would gladly say of Mr. Smith's would-be detractor would a strict ob servance of tho truth permit. Tho truth is, Mark Smith has been too alert for the convenience of seme people; tho editor of tho Star, through 'machinations not generally known, was once upon a time made governor over all theEe people, social dictator, mon arch over that which ho could lay his 'hands to, and that which he could not he grasped at also; democracy rebelled, Mark was appealed to, and like tho man that he iB, ho never slept until Hughes was fired bodily from the gubernatorial perch a disgraced man and therefrom comes the animus which actuates the insipid assaults frequently made thrdugh the Star upon our good Mark Smith. The Star cuts a littlo swath in mould ing sentiment for Arizonans. Its ed itor hasn giievance at Mr. Smith, and that conduces to Mark's high standing 'before his constituents. Ho did them good work; purified his party in the Tciritory and foiced tho editor of tho Star to sek consolation in the ranks of the jepublican party, from whenco he hnd but lecently dercrted. That is the milk in the cocoanut. The city assessor of Phoenix was Long in office but short when ho was called upon to make a settlement. "And tho Star Spangled Banner in 'Triumph Shall Wave, O'er tho Land of tho Freo and the Homo of the Brave." Democratic. noDulist and silver re- publican conventions are standing fiimly on tho Chicago platform and financial reform. The great issues con tnincd in that platform aio too great and vital to bo loit sight of by tho niasecs. A TELzaruu in tho London Times says : "Tho annexation of the Ladrono Islands was marked by a ludicrous incident. The Charleston cntcied tho harbor of Guaban and filed seven guns at the forts. Tho governor, thinking it was a salute, sent woid that he regretted his inability to return it, as ho was without t powder. AVhen informed that he was : prisoner of war ho indignantly protest- cd, saying that ho had no idea that war laid biokun out. An Aineiic.ui citltn residing in the town was appointed pic- JsfbiMl goMunorof tho liliouui." The public is informed that Governor McUord has decn chosen as colonel of tho new icgimcnt to beiaiscdln Ari zona, Now Mexico, Oklahoma and In dian Teiritory. In tlicio days when people are clamoiing for torritoiial ex pansion, The Ojib must acknowledge that Governor McCoid will not piovo a misfit in this instance, if his past iccord in acquiring public domain is to bo taken into consideration. Could the foe only loi'cgime the man by sight they would lealinquish all their belongings without burning'nn ounce of powclcr. How tho governor can tear himself away fiom the lich field from which ho lias been gaineiing so successfully, is bojond tho compiehension of those who have been foiced to do tho tilling. How ever, a patriotic people will allow their beloved governor to depart in quest of now fields to conquer without being too inquisitive. You may expect to hear of tho colonel taking possession of eomo island in tlie Pacific ocean and cstab lishinn a little kingdom for himself. Tim course of tho AiipnaStar is a good index of tho tiuo inwardness of McCoid proceduie, says tho Prcscott Courier. The Star, which is tho Mc Cord voice from' behind the throne, has said from the first that McCoid was too valuable a man, that he could not be spaied fiom tho scene of his labors, etc. 'o suepected all tho time that tho Star had it3 private instructions from Mc Cord in the mattei . Now, it is lumored that petitions aro being slyly circu lated by the MeCord strikers piaying that MeCord lcconsider tho matter and that he should not tear himself away from his beloved Arizona. Of course, MeCord does not know anything about theso petitions, certainly not; at any rato he has advertised MeCord to the extreme limit that such a scheme would allow and nowthese petitions, of which tho innocent creatine knows nothing(?), will givo him a chance to rotire with tho same graco manifested by a taxless canino escaping through a knot-hole in a city pound. AsriKAXTS for political proferment would do well to take cognizance of Bis bcc!s cordial,offextfljyjtertai,n the nam:, inating conventions of tho two gieat parties when they convene in the near future to choose men to represent us for tlie next two years. Southern Arizona is entitled to this consideration, and tho copper camp being tho metropolis of this section is prepaiod to entertain as no other town can or would. Being a town of six thousand inhabitants, an unusually laige percentage voting, tho convontioii8, and those who dictate their actions, might find it of interest to assemble here and expose to view the kind of material they pui pose choosing for our support. Tho hotel accommo dations aio ample for such a gathering wo have two first-class places, the Not ton House and Tho Richeliou and our restauiant accommodations are un excelled in the west. The two contend ing parties would mako no mistake were they to hold their lespective con ventions at Bisbc. Parents of now babies aro hereby cautioned to bo careful about attaching names to them in a moment of popular excitement, which might hereafter prove embarrassing. It is all-right to name the boys in honor of war heroes; but it isn't fair to tho girls to pin a date line on them for all future time. For ox ample, some fair Miss in tho year of our Lord 1935 may smilo and smirk and say she is only twenty-four years old, and feel satisfied until some disagreeable old dame will remark : "Why Dowoyann Spriggs, wasn't you named after Dewey that won tho sea victory in 1898?" Then will Doweyann cuiso her patents and weep. Thekr i a demand by. vaiious people that war cotiespondents write bomo high class readable desciiptivo matter from tho front. They will not lie grat ified. Tho newspapers only want that kind of writing which looks woll in a headline at a nuigo of one thousand yards. Tun. public should bo cautious about signing a petition proving "Colonel" MeCord to remain in Aiiona. Mako him go to tho front or mako an un mistakable siie.ik. AVhii.i: we aie making all kinds of war stamps, why don't wo mako a eories beaiing tho United States Hag? U.nci.k Sam may owe it to tho world to fieo Cubi, but lie dQs not owe it to tho Cuban Junta. Win, tho United States demand tho surrender of Manila in tho name of tho Monioe doctrine? Ir would bwni that tho govern meul i8 dotennijnpd to "stamp" out tho war dubt. Ail 1 Hi Disagreements Concerning- Surrender. Washixcton, July 1C There Tfs a long and anxious wait today to hear further news from the commhvsionors who had been charged to make arrange ments for the surrender-of tho Spanish army at Santiego. Foroighteen hours no word came either fronvGerieral Shat ter or General Miles, although there was the keenest desiieon the part of tho presidentand cabinet officers to'learn what was to be done, and whether the actual surrender of Santiago and the Spanish t loops had been cairied out. Whon the cabinet met at 1. o'clock there was nothing fiom the front. Toward the middle of the afternoon dispatches from General Shatter and General Miles began to arrive. They were not given out in full but such poitions as were made public showed that negotiations were still in pi ogress, the Spaniards having raised some rather unexpected questions. The most important of these was the insistance that the Span ish troops should retain their arms until they leturncd ta Spain. No ques tion whatever has been raised to the surtender itself. Not onlv Gen. Toral rfgiecd to it, but this agreement had been ratified by General Blanco, at Ha vana, and by the Spanish government at Madrid. The Monroe Doctrine. Paris, July 10. The Matin has le ceived from its London correspondent, who has unusual sources of informa tion, a dispatch in which he says Euro pean chancellors aro now discussing tho question of thpeventual interfer ence of the powels in tho Philippine LlfilandswU-" -v t . I, "" Ambassadors i$ Berlin, the corre spondent adds, have advised their gov ernment respecting the German's Hue of policy, which seems quite settled. Gcimany would prefer the maintenance of a status quo, but as a consequence of the war Spanish sovereignity must not be itt successor. An international agreement, the Ma tin correspondent further asserts, will bo established, and powers interested in tho islands would each be called on to protect its own interests. The cor respondent adds : "This is the logical outcome of the Monroe doctrine, the principle will-be employed in Europe in order to pro tect itself against Amorican interfer ence, and unless appearances are de ceptive, Great Britain, in spite of the talked of Angla-Saxon alliance, will do the Bame as the other powers. What We Get. Smoxy,, Cuba, July 16. Geneial Miles and staff arrived from the front and went aboard the Conoba. On tho wharf, General Miles Baid the surren der carried with it not only the city of Santiago but the entire Santiaga mill tary district, being tho eastern portion of Cuba, west to a line drawn from Acenaderos on tho eouth coast, to Saeua on the north cost. Man- zanillo and Holcuin are not in cluded in this map. We take pos session at once.

The Rush to the Philippines. Sax Fua.ncisco, July 16. The last or ders of General Otis before leaving army headnu.utcis yesterday wore that the leraaining transports should anil as Boon as possible, incspectivo of fleets or other expected vessels. Each one, ho said, should go by itself, if necessary. Surprisingly quick veik has been done on the Pennsylvania and C ty of Rio Janeiio.

Working men of the camp recognize in Messrs Quinn and Lauge men upon whom they may depend, and as an appreciation of that sterling quality are giving the young gentlemen an enviable business reputa tion, which they are fully capable of maintaining.
