The uboo (ltiotntlou, in substanoe, has
'been put to thoOitn in the form of a ques
tion with roznrd to the official counsellor of
'the county, to-wlt, the District Attorney.
Tho Interrogation is based on tho faot that
tho tnx-puyers havo been not only paying
tho salary of &n attorney to protect their
Interests, but additionally, they have been
compcl'cd, by ordor of tho couit, io pay
largo lums to outsido attorneys, principally
for the prosecution of criminals, hich sums
It is claimed should i ot bo allowed, or If
allowed, should bo'pafel by tlio District
Attornoy out of his own salary.
The Orii has attempted to malte suoh ex
planatlon as would justify tho District
Attorney and satisfy tho tx-iaors that
the Democratic party, by its representatives
in ofHco, was living up to the pledge mad
during tho last campaign, to givo such an
' economical administration of public affairs
as would, as far as possible, alleviate the
burden of taxation, and glvo assurance of
-olEelal houes y in all brauohos of the county
i goerinnent. -.
In tho face of nil the efforts of tho Orb to
show good faith and duty on tho part of tho
District Attorney, we are continually bolng
reminded of the faot thut, among other
things, there wavirot ono single conviction
' secured at tho last term of the District Court
1y the unaided efforts of tho District Attor-
lioy ; in all cases hero ocousod porsous wore
'not prosecuted by other than tho District
Attorney, mid were sentenced" to punish

It Is also poihted out that instead of ro-
"duoing the rajteof taxatlou it has been
'"jnateriilly inci eased; and while the.Omi has
attempted to show as much asv possible, tlut
career, other than dereliction on tho part of
tho District Attorney nre nccouutablo for
this fact, tho nnswer has invariably oeon to
the effect that if the District Attornoy .would,'
5 himself, perform tho duties of the office to
which ho' wai elootod, wl hout putting tho
-1 county to considerable additional expense in
pa iug others for doing it for him, it would,
"ft not materially lessen the tax rate, at least
show a desire on tho part of the District
Attorney to not inoreaso it.
Tho Oiui worked faithfully and sincerely
to aid in the election of Mr. Land, boltoving
v It was working for tho host Interest of tho
' count at largo; to havo it proved that all
our efforts In that direction wet e ns "love's
labor lost," Is, to sny tl.e least humiliating.
' Tho Onb is not disgruntled nor has it any
prhatou to grind; and all that it has said,
is spoken in a spirit of filondly counso ,and
- admonition. If thoDemooratlo narty is not
ablo to fulfill Its plcdgos, made, to tho voters

at Phoenix by Paul Hull. The mission
of the paper is to advertise the resources

They continue buying silver mines just
as if the metal had a real commercial
value without the election of demagogue
Bryan and the introduction of his absurd
and disltpnest silver coinase schemes inr

which will extend and which are per
manent, so that there is no danger of
the metal becoming less ptecious than
it is now.
The celebration in Miouor of Mexican
independence was most fittingly ob-eerved-in
our city, by thecitizensof that
republic. A parade was formed on Sat
urday afternoon, consisting of floats,
representing battleships, the band,

etateB, besides their order? and citizens
on horsebick and in carriages. Exer
cises weie held in the Opera House in
the atternoon and at night a giand bill
was given, which was largely attended.
National salutes were fired at sunrise,
noon and sunset; and, on the whole, the
affair was ono of which the committee
in charge may well feel proud.
Quite a romance is liable to result out
of the recent affair which occurred at
Naco last week. In the article which

To the BisnKE Orb :
Please permit us to correct a mis
statement relative to our school which
appeared in your paper of Went date.
You say, "It appears froin an editorial
in tho Breeze that the scho'ol trustees in
our neighboring town havoemploved a
gentleman to teach the school in that
place who is afllicted with tuberculosis,
at least one physician has to certified,
etc." All of which is not true, and
does a great injustice to our school,
which we claim is equal to any in the
county. Professor Kirech was principal
of our school last year and gave general
satisfaction. No one denied but he
taught the best school we have had for
vears. Last year tho trustees did not
requite the teachers to file a certificate
of health with their applications and
there-was no scarecrow "tubeiculosis"
made his appearance, notwithstanding
we had tho Bame teacher last year as
this. This year the trustees' did make
an order that all applicants must file
with them a certificate of health from a
practising physician beforo their appli
cations would bo considered. Professor
KirBch Underwent a thorough examina
tion by Dr. I. H. Walkins, a practising
physician of this place and who is em
ployed, by the Southern Pacific Railway
company as their physician and surgeon.
Dr. Watkins gave a certificate that
Professor Kirsch was in no way physi
cally incapicitted to perform the duties
of a school teacher, which was filed with
his application and we employed him as
principal of our school. There has been
no phvsician certified to the contrary;
Profeesor Kirsch has not been examined
by anv other physician, tfhich fact the
editor of the Bieeze is well awate of,
and if he wished to do justice by the
school, as well as Professor Kirech, he
would have corrected your airicle in
place of reprinting it in the Bieeze.
Every one m Benson knows there is no
truth in the item, consequently it does
no harm in our town ; but iwe are sorry
to say tho papers from our neighboring
towns copv from the Breeze, which has
the suppoit of a very small portion of
our town, and in towns wfiare they do
not know the facte, is where our school
gets the black eye. Through the influ
ence cf the Breeze there was a petition
circulated in town asking that Professor
Kirsch submit to another examination
by what they teimed a reputable physi
cian. The town was thoioughly can
vassed and they succeeded in getting
four families n ho have school children
to sign their petition, and one of tho
four has moved heie from Kansas with
in the last three weeks. J
We atk yon to publish Hheatxvye in
fairness to all, not that we Inwe any
fight to make on tne Bieeze, but simply
to correct a misstatement wjiich ap
peared in your columns as comiiig from
the Bieeze. We,astrustees,claira to havo
done our whole duty in selecting teach
ers for our school, and we aie encouraged
to see that we have the support of the
whole town, except peihaps the Breeze
and one or two whom he influences.
We wish to say in conclusion that our
school opened on Monday, September
11, and all the pupils in Benson are
attending except one boy, L. W. Cooley's
son, who is taking private lessons from
the editor of tho Breeze.

Mr. Stephen J. Whelan, lato superin
tendent of the New York Iron Works,
has been appointed supeiinten lent of
the copper Kingof Aiizona Minion com
pany, and Iiub taken charge of its prop
erties, making his he.ulquarteis at its

well qualified lor his new position. He
has been making a study of mines and
mining for some time. He conies of a
family of mechanical engineers. His
father is now the superintendent ot the
Atlantic Iron Woiksof Boston, where
he has been in charge for many years.

has been superintendent ef the famous
Union Iron Works of San Francisco,
which built the engines of the United

formance in steaming from San Fran
cisco to the coast of Cuba, during our
late war with Spain, has never been
equaled. He was also assistant super
intendent of the D. M. Nichols & Co.
Works and of the Atlantic lion Works
of Boston. Though never directly in
the employ of the United States govern
ment he has done a large amount oi
work for it which has been commended
in the heartiest manner by the officers
who have had it in charge. He can be
depended upon to develop the Barrett
