UNO. Secretary Tn Phoenix Enterprise has been VicicMBly aeianlted. "Pinheod" Hughes of the republican Tucson Star ossays to take tho little paper under granny's wing. Editor Mills is a gontleman with a bright future and cannot afford totrott in the Hughes hurdle. crmrwill no doubt annex herself to the United States so soon as she can be come orderly enough to get an expres sion of the people of that island at the foils. Every former Spanish' citizen will favor annexation and probably the better class of Cubans. Tho guirrilla class, now bent on rapine and plunder, Want things as they are. If upon mature reflection, "Pinhead" Hughes discovers that ho is a nonentity, not a man, a thing, who reflects no sen timent then ho would settle down to the level of intelligence where mongrels bay at the moon. "Pinhead's" shining tar duappeared when Clara Edwards left the Tucson stage. Tan business men and citizens gener ally of Bisbee appreciate the honor given our town in selecting it as tho place for holding the Democratic County Conven tion. Thanks are duo our local repre sentatives on the county central com mittee, Who place the interests of our town ahead of political consideration. Will the republicans follow tfi'oir exam pie? W are in receipt of a printed circular from Wells, Eargo & Co. trying to ex plain why thoy refuse o pay their share of the war tax, but it is too big a dose far us to swallow. Tbo'uso for that in stitution is growing less and this imposi tion upon the public as well as tlio mean and unpatriotic position tho express company has placed itself in will do anuch toward ending tho existence of that company. PjIksidint McKinlky should not wait for a congressional investigation of tho War department beforo removing Alger. It is his plain duty to do it now. He aaa paid whatever political debt ho 'Wed this person, and ono would sup pdee that' Alger must have paid his political debts to his supporters in con t tracts and in appointments. At all vents, the country has had all of Alger tlfatit can stand, and enough to swamp the administration that is responsible for him. From the start'to thoclosov tbe Management of the soldiers of the United States, regulars just liko volun teers, has been ono story of conspicu ously bad management and inhuman incompetence. It makes no difforenco what shall bo discovered in detail by an investigation, tho incompotonco' 6f the war department is absoldto in pvory branch, aid tho head of it is responsi ble for it. Mr. McKinley is an accom plice in the murder of our soldiers so lag aa he retains this unworthy person. M tl "Pi.MiiiAu" Hugiii:4 is tlomn arod woik tor the people by attracting atten tion to Mtuk Smhh'a mperior ability as mi attorney. Invjiis mad endeavor to belittle a gentleman who baa oloyed tho behests of the people, cleansed his ekiits and endeared, himself to the pub lic by leading qut of tho Democratic jaity one of tho most degenerate of do-gent-iate. This double-dealing syco phr.nt. letViriog to tho acts of oonsuii'n tiMR nttomoy, su.vf: "It was luiing a session of .congresH, when S-'mith was delegate, drawing hip salary and sworn to uphold the constitu tion and law a of tho United State, that he voluntaiily absented himself from his 'eat in eongiess to defend tho notorious Wham robbeie, who shot down a squad of I. S. toldiera an'1 robbed U. f-'. Pay maMQi Wham of $30,000." Taking it foi giauted that .Mr. Smith did do all as attributed by "1'inhead" Hughes, thofo wli are personally ac quainted witlithu two men will uphold tlio man who ncyer 6w'ercd from dutj'. ifis suflicirntfiii tiie eye of the public that Mr. Smith did not sell his ulicbte, but 1 eing the able attorney that he is, acquitted, them of a heiuou3 offense. Mr. Smith was "twoin to uphold the constitution and laws of the United States." But how about the judge be- toro wiiom tins case was tuuclr Wus l o not superior in his olllcial capacity to Mark Smith? Who are tho jury who sat upon the case and rendeied an "im partial verdict?" How is it that the people have time and timo again heart ily endoised the gentleman whom this pigmy would besmirch did ho carry enfJ fieient weight? Such poisonous darts fiom tho Tucson Star aro relished in-tlie houshold of decency ;they are calculated fo purify public sent'ment; to place people upon their guard against such shysters as "Pinhcad" Hughes who, in order that he might bo heard, would not hesitate to assassinate character. One who would ,,palm off a "fallen dove" upon an innocent btother h capable of Htabbing a gentleman in tho back. And if this man "Pinhead" Hughes persists in imposing himself it. decency's circlo and criticising his worthies, Tjik Oitn'a searchlight will reveal to the people of Arizona a state of affairs that even "Pinhead" Hughes will bluBh to recog nizo as facts. Public servants should bo criticised, but the critizism should come from those who aro abovo re proach ; not from men who have been weighed and found wanting in every scale that judges decency, in every bal ance that weighs manhood. It is indeed a scaly scalo that would leave anything on "Pinhead's" side. As tho campaign progresses Tun Onb will show up some of the deceptions of this republican-democratic Tucson Sta'r. The republican Tucson Star is not pleased with the action of the demo cratic county contml committee of Co chise. Tlio committee is composed of representative gentlemen of tho demo cratic party, chosen by tho representa tive people of Cochise, whose actions aro heartily and unreservedly en dorsed by tho rank and file of tho party who protect tho peoples' interests and keep such men as "Pinhead" Hughes in the slough of despond, guessing if their noses will ever bo able to protrudo the slimo which keeps their filthy carcasses from view of decency. Cochise county lias managed lo, these many years to care for her own, without consulting tho republican Tucson Star and it hordo ofboodleis as to who shall up hold tho public's inteiest. Whether our judgment lias been, good or not can best bo determined by the fact that Mark Smith has always been endoised, has been nominated and elected, and' has demonstrated his efficiency and in tegrity by booting such men a "Pin head" Hughes out of the democratic wigwam. No wonder that tho Tucson Star is not satisfied with Cochise de mocracy. Aspei sions from the Star source aro but leflectionB of integrity upon tlio Cochise county democratic cen tral cotiinittee. WhiluTiie Oitsuill not be sparing with those who attempt to flirt with tho public, you will observe that partisan ship cuts no figure here. If occasion requires we will score those who aie de relict in thoir duties; if, upon tho other hand therottro those who aro deserving it matters not to what party they be longthis journal will champiqn them to the deserving point, and no farther. Secretary Alger declares that ho "is distressed more than he can say" because of tho sufferings of tho soldiers at Santiago. His disties3 will not hi Ing back tho dead, nor satisfy tho living victims of political war mnking. IIo could do nothing that would go so far to quiet juat public indignation as to resign his place in tho cabinet and lclicve the president of tho imputation of condoning his mistakosand misdoings. Philadelphia Record. This war has, indeed, emphasized the fact that it is no less than wicked folly o appoint a man, as a roward for polit ical eei vices, to a placo ho is unfit to fill. Alger would havo been no more lit in poaco than in war, but tho lattor event has illustrated his unworthineas. Tho principal civil set vice roferm shinos inoro clearly in bucIi illustrations. Bpringllold, Maes. , Ho publican, Thq country moves that tho vaclion which Secretary Alger expects to take shall not be less than ,for four years.
