The hall became well filled hw)h after
eight o'clock-when Col. Brodio was in-
r froduced to tho audience by 0. 0. War
ner. He Bpoke about fifteen minutes.
His remarks .were almost a verbatim
repetition of thoso made at Phoenix
and Tucson, as reported by tho press
irrespective of political bias. His sketch
of his life occupied half the time.during
which he stated that he vas"born:an'd

Thus ended the most gigantic polit
ical farce that was ever thrust upb'11 the
people of IMsbee.,
Tut studied and persistent attempts
of thb republicans to obscure the real
issues of this campaign are sb'clumsilv
and palpably- apparent that no one
surely can fail to see through them.
"Col. Brodie's eword and statehood,"
said Jndge 'Wright, here, "True Ameri
canism," said Gov.Miirphy, atNogales,
certainly a remarkably indefinite decla
ration of principles. But what do they
mean by these cunningly formed
phrases? This explanation they care
ful';' avoid for tho very good reason that
they mean nothing that they want the
voters of Arizona to know. Statehood
and two moro gold-bug senators is not
wanted by Arizona. However, every
thoughtful person knows that the terri
al .administration, ,as r.now .constituted,
does not want statehood ,ior Arizona
The. republican party-coflld. have given
us etatehood' long ago had they fcs?a
willing to do so. Gov. Murphy was
elected delegate four years ago promising
us statehood. Did he secure it, or even
sincerely attempt it? Yet Mr. Murphy

Tim following cxtraot from the Glubo
"Silver Belt" U especially pertinent just
now: "Tho Arizona Sliver Halt from Its llrst
Issue up to the present tlmo has been con
ducted ns an independent dewspaper, in ac
cordance with tho promiso made by A. H.
Hackney. In tho early days of Olobo there
were no Issuos dlvldng tho tho two. parties
that seriously affected the welfare of the
west, and tho chief intorestln looal politics
was to eleot the best men to fill tho offices.
Since the demonetization of sllvor, however,
and especially-of late years, the policy of tho
republican party has gradually become ln-
"imlcablo to the west, until now under tho
administration of William McKlnley it has
discarded all pretense of doing anything for
tho restoration of silver to Its former, posi
tion ns baslo money. The democratlo policy,
on tho other hand, harmonizes with western
ideas, and It Is manifest that tho remouetl-
'zatlou of silver never wUJpbo accomplished
unless the democratic party s restored to
power. Believing this, tho Arizona Slluer
Belt.wlll hereafter advocate the principles
of tho democratic party, and urge tho elec
tion of democrats to office, but wo will en
deavor alwnys to conduct tho paper on clean
lines, free from unjust orltic2sm or personal
abuso of our political opponent."
THIS campulgu Is 0110 that should receive
the closest study by tho voters In Arizona,
as It preaonts n condition which deserves
.and domunds it. It should bo considered
without regard to the personality of cither

Col. Brodie the republican candidate, stand

thew differences nro of vital importance to
tho people of the territory. The republicans

Buckey O'Neill, elicited the only marked
applause which he received. .
At the conclusion of Col. Brodie's
remarks the band played on. This
time it was the "Star Spangled Banner,"
after which Col. Zabriskie was brought
forward .and'iutroduced by Mr. Warner.
The Colonol pleaded lameness i.and
fatigue but warmed up and proceeded
in his usual vigorous style. Judge
Wright, in his speech following that of
thecolonel,8aidhe"ripped and snorted."
Zabriskie has justly been styled the
"silver tongued orator of Tucson," and
Brodie's labored utterances, which pre
coded apd Wright's drivelling tommy
rot which followed, eervedas dark back
grounds for Zabriekie's flowery oration.
He is a good lawyer and as such made
most of a bad cuee, talking of matters
having no more bearing on the present
issues than a discourse on the "Wara o f
the Kosee." People never coase to
wondor why, when such men as Za
brifckio are in the party, the republi
cans continue to run such men for dele
gate to congress ns Doran and Brodie.
In addition to his stereotyped talk about
thoi greatness of our country and its
grand futuro, tho credit of which largely
belonged to tho Hough Ridera (ho for
got that the McKinley administration
demands all the credit) Col. Zabriskie
did'refor to the subject of silver, but
said that question was settled at the St.
'Louis convention two yearaagoin defer
ence to the wiser and more experienced
and matured judgement of the eastern
Charlet V. Wright, of Tuccon, was
then tiotted out. He had meanwhile
been occupying a especially prominent
position on the platform, giving tho
uignul for npplauso when ho thought a
littlo show ot enthusiasm "the thing."
Tho kottlo drum and the trombone wero
at his command, which added to tho
loud' "applause." At other times ho
smiled softly at thoughts of some of tho
good things he was going today later,
especially the "buttermilk" gag on Tke
Oni). lie started with a blunder by
mentioning silver in an indefinite way,
which bought oub the first real applause
of the evening. Latr ho" became dfl
nite, stating that silver had jio moro to
do with this campaign than the ques
tion ofInfantDamnation,FreeLove or the
Tern oral Tower of tho Pope. Ho thou

Obb in yesterdav's issue voiced the sen
timents of (ho Bisbee )coplo in pro
testing ajninst tho public school chil
dren being turned out to welcome tho
republican theatrical troupe. He stated
that patriotism was tho chief lesson to
bo taught by tho schools. Just where
paviijg hotnago to a gang of politicians
out hunting office constitutes, patriotism
he of course omitted to explain. Phys
ically, ho suggests to one the extinct
species for which Darwin long sought.
Ilia mental processes, if thoy ever ob

parture in the school of Psychology.
Much of his tlmo was dovoted to Col.
Brodio's record aB n liough Itidor and
Gov. Murphy had bequeathed to him
tho story that President McKinley and
all the great men in congress, both sen
ate and houso, would favor statehood for
'.Arizona if Col. Brodie be .elected. Ac-
what respect Col. Brodie so far excels
Delegate Murphy in ability. New Mex
ico has repeatedly elected a republican
delegate to congress, and at many times
been considered safely republican on
all questions but the silver issue. Tho
doubt of -tho result on that issue has
-kept that territory from out the glorious
constellation of states, and will keep
out Arizona as long as the coldites are
in.power. For the friends of silver in
Arizona to sacrifice their principles 'and
Ltheir -votes lor' promises of statehood
from republican manipulators would be
suicidal and ridiculously so. True
Americanism is being true to our coun
try, and also true to ourselves; voting
for republican candidates does not con
stitute the first, nor does voting against
our convictions constitute the latter.
Hi Bowen-Hninphrey.
Tho wedding ot John Bowen to Miss
Jennie Humphrey, last night and the
reception which followed at the home
'of the bride's parents was one of the
most notable social events of the season.
Both parties to the marriage bond are
so Well and favorably known that the
number of friends attending wns verv
larieand tho wedding presents very
numdrouB and in many instances ele
gaatiud costly.
The room in which the ceremony was
performed was elaborately and beauti
fully decorated. Tho charming bride
was cleganllydregsed in white brocaded
silk trimmed in"jJassementerie, with bo
quet of white cbrnatioW, Later the
band serenaded the happy couple, and
still later they retired to their own res-j
idence on Castle Hill, it having been
previously put in order for their rccep
ion by willing hands.
Advices from? Paris show that tho
peace commissioners are very far apart
in their views. That Spain will event-'
ually realize that she was quite recently
adly whipped there is no doubt, but it
'seems still very difficult for them to do
so, at least openly.

For Councilman:
Wk know that Judge Wright when
speaking here said very littlo, although
he talked a whole lot; certinly ho did
not Mty anything really affecting what
are the true issues of this campaign, yet
it was hardly to be supposed that he
knew nothing of them, but it Beems ab
solutely true that he does not know upon
what kind of a platform the candidate
for whom he nska support is standing
on. In witness of this we quote Irom
the Phoenix Republican (which has a
special reporter accompanying Col Bro
dio's party) in tho report of the meet
ing at Nogaleson Tuesday last: "Judge
C. W. Wright in his address maintained
that he knew nothing of the issues of
the campaign. He said a political plat
form was like the label on a whisky
bottle it is put there to sell tho whisky.
"I have never red tho democratic or re
publican platforms,"' he continued; "I
did not como here to talk politics, or
epeak of silver, the tariff or any other
questions upon which wo have no voice.
I came hero to try to stir your hearts."

We endorse the platform adopted at
the Republican National Convention,
held in St. Louis, June 1896; the plat
form on which was elected our illustri
ous president, William McKinley. We
heartily approve of tho manner Mn which
the president conducted the late war
with Spain;, that as a statesman, he has
no superior, and but few equals, is our
unanimous conviction. We rejoice that
our unlimited resources, together with
the skill, tho loyalty and the bravery of
our army and navy, achieved a glorious
victory in our war with Spain, and de
monstrated .that the United Statso is,
and must be recognized as one of tho
foremost powers among tho nations of
tho eartb.
Vo-unQ.ulilledly.cndorse tho platform
adopted lay our Territorial Republican
Convention in Prescott on tho 20th of
September last, believing it to be a plat
form on which any one, who has the
welfare of our territory at heart, may
feel proud to Btand upon.
To nppeciato the honor due fellow citi
zens who have fought and bled under
the flag of our country id characteristic
of republican ism; and wo being repub
licans avo proud that our party has
nominated for delegato to congress a
hero of tho lato war, Col A. 0. Brodie.
In county nffairs, we favor an eco
nomic administration. Wo believe that
every offort should be made to reduce
the present rate of taxation. In order
to accomplish this we should elect our
officers from among tho moBt responsi
ble and reliable, representatives of our
mining, agricultural and stock raising
