Tho- steam er Coptic, winch araived from tho Ori ent yesterday brings nows from China that the American steamer Wing Foo, Captain Sherman, is supposed' to. have tjono down with all hands. During the war United States Consul-General Wild man chartered tho Wing Foo to carry dispatches to Admirrl Dewey at Manila. Tito Territory of Hawaii: San F.RANCI8CO, Sept 10. Tho steamer Coptic, from Yokohama, Hong Kong and Honolulu brings the following, to the Associated Press from Honolulu, under dato of September S: It will be too territory of Hawaii. That is the name the commission has decided' to recommend to congress. Thus will bo preserved in political nomenclature tho dietictivo origin of' this part of the United States. Tho form of governs ment will bo modeled on that of exist ing territories. There will bo no fur ther departures from this form than the local cond&jggns and national political, conditions-mjta necessary. Local self goverment wilhbfrgivon a thorough ex tension of' municipal idea. Tho island will bo divided into municipal districts having control under restrictions and limitations of purely local affairs. Hon olulu, for instance, will be a municipal district embracing tho wholo of the island Oahu. nawaii may bo' divided into districts and Molokai, Lanai and Niihau may bo attached to sonde other municipal district. It is pretty cortain, from what has been said by the mem bers of the commission from time to time, that in framing the form of gow ernment for those islands, they have also been charged by the administration at Washington with forming a model which can be adapted to Porto Rico and other new possessions tho war has brought thu United States. The com mission is trying to so shape its work as to be able to conclude its labors on Sep tember 20th. (fray For Peace Commission. Washington, Sept. 10. The cabinet meeting today was protracted,, lastinu two hours and a quarter, although Sec retaries Gage and Wilson and Postmaster-General Smith were with the presi dent. The- appointment of Senator Gray na peace commissioner was first that the formal announcement of a choice was made. A portion of the investigation admin istration of the war department and ap pointment of.coramissioners to conduct the investigation was gono over. Whether tho president will direct an investigatiou depends upon his ability t find men for tho commisionin whom there will bo such universal approval that this vordict will be accoptod in ad van ce as a just determination of the subject. If Bitch men can be found then the president will name them and order an investigation, if they cannot bo found then an invcstlgnation will not occur. No MpreMusteringut; "Washington," Sept. 10Fhe stte ment by tho war department of -thV reg iments to bo mustered out and thobe that aro ' to be retained is intended to be final until tho Cuban and Porto Bican Commissions, which will begin work noxt week, report upon the garri sons required for both islands. Tho de partment is besieged with inquiries from governors and congressmen as to tho size of the army to bo maintained and asking that tho quotas for their states bo made as small as possible. Tho requests aro in response to a u n- ergl desire of tho soldiers to be mustered oat Th'e department hns been unable to answer thoso questions, becauto theie is no way of telling at this time just how largo an army will have to bo maintain ed for tho next few months.

A com munication to (his effect wa's diawn In tho- most courteous tcuns. It at'ked whoro and when- the Spanish rommis- Bionors would moot tho Americans. Lieutenant Sear, Rear Admiral Schley's ilag lieutenat, duliveied tho communi cation to the Captain General. WATCHHAN.WHAT OF THE NIGHT Tho campaign for 1898 is now open-. There are many deserving men who will come before tho people for recognition and piefeiment, and it behooves public sentiment to fcee to it that none are put foiwurd who are not deserving and in fnlL accord with thee who watch over tho interests of tho public. Tho people expect of the Democratic County Convention that no ono shall be placed upon tl.u ticket who cannot withstand the ordoal of honest ciiti cisni. He who cannot como out boldly and defy public opposition and disprove charges which unfit a person for public favor should be relegated to tho back ground. If thero bo those who imagine they have a "cinch" on tho democratic party and that tho elevating element of the populace do not take cognizanco of cvery-day facts, they reckon without their host; and thobe who come to Bis bee on the 8th of October next with the expectation of taking place above supe riors will doubtless discover that tho human family is on the lookout some times. Tho democratic party of Arizona never had a better opportunity to elevate and maintain tho principles of that organi zation than at the picsont. Wo want clean men, fiee from any aspeision; we havo them and if we do not put them forward we ourselves aro to blame. The timber is hewn; all that is wanting is that the public architect put if in place. The democra tic party will eee to it that nono who aro not worthy will bo recommended for the suffges of the peo ple. PnoiiABLY never in tho history of Bis beo was there brought into the town so big n load by so small a man as one of. tho Tombstone republican manipulat ors struggled over the divide with night before last. In these days when tho democratic nnd peoples' parties lepre sent in their platforms, their teachings and their official acts all that the voters of Auzona long for, and tho republican party, in thu same manner, lepiosants all that is most detested, the outlook for electing any man who will content to run on the republican ticket this fall seems dark hi the extreme. Hut in the fertile biain of a T6mbstono'rcpublicnn was born a thought which worked itself out into life and action in the form of tho following scheme: To placo as can didate for sheiiff on tho lepublicnn ticket Sergeant Geo. Joseph McCabe, of the Rough Rideis. who was two years ago candidate for the same office on tho populist's ticket, and thoreby secure tho populist paity's support for the entire tepublican ticket. This scheme was the heavy burden safely landed in liisbeo night beforo last. Tho cast iron gall of a mind that for one moment supposes that a man who resigned a well paying position for the purpose of going to Cuba as a common soldier to light for freedom and tho right would forswear all tho principles he firmly holds politic ally for the paltry ollico of sheriff of this county, probably docs not realizo the insult such an offer implies. The opin ion that the populists of this or any other county would vote the republican ticket, lepresenting what it does at present, however richly baited, is any thing but complimentary to thoso sin eero believers in reform. Tho absurdity of the proposition grows as ono thinks of it, and tho hearty laugh with which it is greeted, when related on tho street, piompts Tin: Oitn. though not claiming o be a humoroUH publication, to give ln eadeiu this best joke of tho season. Tjie report from Colorado Springs of a bloody affray which took pluco theie reeontly must awaken regret and appro honsiou throughont tho country. When partisan bitterness becomes so intense that it leads to the raiding and capture of a ha 1 in which citizens are assembhd for tho purpose of holding a political convention, and lives nro tacntiml thereby,' thero is a strong suggestion that wo aro driftiug away" from "Amer ican fair play and into the revolution ary ways of South America. As the story is told by tho dispatches, tho law less gang known as tho Wolcott faction, which represents the administration Rcpubkans, is entirely at fault. And, by a strange fatuity, this lawless gang was largely made up of officers' of the law, a eheiiff and a chief of police being among tho leaders. Tho object of the mid seems to have been to pievont a fiiMon of tho Silver Republicans, Demo cratic and Topuliat parties. We mis take tho spirit of Colorado voters if this high-handed act does not make tho proposed coalition a foregono conclusion. It will also react powerfully againast tho Ilanna-Wolcott influence, which has aheady been exercised to coerce tho Republicans of Colorado into dropping the fiee-silver plank from their plat form. A few such exhibitions of Ilanna ism gone mad will Bwingtue entire country into lino in support of anti administration tickets. Thero is one thing tho Ameiican people will not tol erate, and that if) bulldozing is politics. Tiik city of Boston, by decision of the full bench of the supreme court, is de clared to bo tho trustee of the fund cre ated by Dr. Benjamin Fianklin in 1790, now amounting to about $500,000. "Poor Richard" set aside $5000 for ac cumulation and designated various pub lic objects to which itsliould bo applied, ono being to help worthy apprentices. Ho designated that the fund should bo "managed by the selection of the town, and the ministers of tho oldest Episcoal, Congiegational andPrcsbyterian church es," and it was contended before the court that this was tantamount to cre ating a board of trustees. The court rules in a decision written by Judge Allen that tho gift to tho town passed to the city on its incorporation, and that n municipality may by a trustee for a public charity. A few years ago Boston talked of using tho Frankliu fund in building trade echoola which would be quite in line with tho intent of the founder of tho fund ; but what disposi tion will now bo made of the half-million is a question entirely open. The Amencan delegation to the Paris peace commission has been completed with the names of Whitelaw Reid and Justice White of tho Unite States su premo court. Messrs. Day and Whito aro accounted, the conservative mem bers, while Messrs. Davis, Fry and Reid are known as imperialists. That tho piesident has so constituted tho delega tion that the imperialists are in the ma jority indicates that he favors their views. On the other hand, Mr. Day is the president's close friend, and, if hois conservative, his influenco may pre dominate in tho formulation of execu tive instructions which will govern the attitude of our delegates. The selection of Justice White will impress the coun tiy as appiopriate. No democrat out side of the court could be induced to serve, it appears, and the justice will scarcely represent the democratic party, but he will add deliberation, conserv atism and solidity to the commission, while his religion and familiarity with tho Spanish language will be of service in enabling the American delegation to understand better tho Spanish caso. IlnRDKRT Brown, editor of tho Tucson Citizen, has taken a large-sized bite from tho republican pie and gono to Yuma to masticate the morsel while superintending tho needs of several hundred of Arizona's elect. Col. John W. Dorrington let loose the public teat at tlip snegestion of Governor Mui phy, who has some ideas of his own, and would like to strengthen his faction of the great moral pai ty fiom out of which Colonel Dorrington has but recently been kicked. The McCordites and tho Murphyites do not dwell in brotherly love; tho former balked and tho" latter cut the belly-band nnd yanked tho obstreperous slaves of Hanna over tho tiaces, rebuked tho McKinleyites and created consternation in the camp of tho g. o."p. A grand disruption has taken placo over spoils, the lesson of which should cause thinking men to ponder well before acting in tho future. Politics as followed by tho republicans of Arizona aio not calculated to be ben eficial to tho' general public, but are managed solely to tho end that parti sans may be emiched at tho general ciib, and to h 1 with tho public It is amusing, however, to observo tho battle of greed and gain'from a non combattivo standpoint, which can bo likened to two cats with their tails se curely spliced and thrown across a clothes-line. Tho public will profit by infoimation thus gleaned from thoso who handlo the public intorests reck lessly that factions may bo perpctu ated and strengthened. Meanwhile tho democratic tanks mo being strength ened, making nbsumnces doubly sure that tho democratic paity will havo tho grandest walkover this fail that has ever blessed a buffering-public. It is an ill wind tliat blows no good., Arizona has a lot of grizzled old baoh elors, widowers and othor charactors stuck, away among her canyons and mountains prospecting and herding who, could they bo gathoied in a body would be the seventh wonder of the world. Many of these men have been "in tile hills" for twenty or more years, only coming out to civilization once in awhile for needed supplies. They ate usually cranks of the crankiest kind. Tho abovo is taken from the Phoenix Herald, which heretofore has always been true to Arizoqa and her brave prospectors. The sentiments expressed gives evidence that tho goldbugcoin has found its way to tho Herald, and it now stat ts in to misuse the very men the pioneers who havo made Arizona what it is today. These fearless prospectors take themselves into the mountains and with suffering, perseverance and hard labor, develop mines, from which pros perous communities arise, supporting their thousand of 'souls. The people of Arizona honor theso men for their labors, and the howHngs of the goldbug press only endears them more in tho hearts of their fellow countrymen. Thk Pacific Cable company is already figuring on laying cables to connect this country with China, Japan, Australia, Howaii and tho Philippins by direct wires. And Canada and Australia may establish a cable of their own. These things will help very greatly toward opening up the lively trade that will t certaily be ours betoro many years in the Pacific. Ono of the most important results of the increase of foreign tradeon the Pacific coast will bo that this end of the country will gain greatly in impor tance to the rest of the countr'. It is not too much to look for, we believe, to expect that within tho next twenty years trade- on the western coast will "hot be far inferior to that on the eastern. For there is Russia, China, Japan, India, 'Australia,' the Straits Settle ments, Malaysia, the -Philippines, and Hawaii, as well as the countries of America south of us, tliatvill naturally turn their trade toward the west coast. In addition to this, there will always be a, heavy carrying trade by water be tween our east and west coasts after the Nicaragua canal is built, owing to tho cheapness as compared with rail trans portation. And this condition is likely to last. i ( -t ' i- At a meeting of tho Democratic Cen ttal Committee of Cochise county, held at the court house in Tombstone, on August 25th, 1898, it was otdered that the DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CON VENTION be called to meet in the Opera House in the town of Bisbeo on the 8TH DAY OF OCTOBER, 1898, at 10 o'clock a. m.
