When a person Is convicted of a folony the jiulgo orders tiiat the pris oner bo confined in tho ponltontiary at hard labor.- Under the late order of things tho sontenco don't mean that the felon bo confined in tho peniten tiary, but that ho be. con fined to tho banks of tho canal, or Colorado river, whero ho cau fish? wbilq the territory furnishes n guard to bait his iiook.

WANTS ilOME .IlUIiE. Denver News. States District United Attorney Ellinwoodof Atizona, in an interview Willi Tho News, ..'.announces that au ... t ''' ofl'oit is to bo made by tho people of that territory for homo rule, which means that thoy shall bo permitted to elect their governor and other terri torial officials, and wo presume- also their judges. In other words, thoy will ask that tho territory bo placed on tho sumo footing as a stato, except that they will continuo to havo only a delegato in congress instead of a con gressman nnd senatois. Tills is a very radical doparturo ju thu policy which tho United States has always pursued toward the territories. Tho governor, secrolary aud judges havo always been appointed by tho president, and paid by tho federal government! Whether Mr. Ellin wood's schemo includes tho paymout of tho officials by tho territory ns well as their election docs not appear. Tho scheme, if authorized by congress, would placo a portion of tho burdens of a stato government on tho people of tho territory, which would bo offset by tho piivilego of choosing their own uilers, instead of having them selected by thu president. lu iccout years tlieio has been a well defiued sentiment iu favor of sclectiug tcriitoriat officials from tho citizens of tho totritory for which thoy wcio named. Certain it is that Micro has been an impiovemeut in this tegaul. Back in tho days when Col orado was a territory, and before tho class often iloiial appointees was as a wliolo a disgrace to American politics. Politicians without character or stand ing at home, aud with little or no fitness for tho positions to which they wore appointed, were sent out to tho West to become governors nnd secrc taiies and judges. Colorado had its sharo and kicked so vigorously about it Hint to this sourco tho lata roform must bo credited. Tho Arizona proposition, wo take it, is made to meet lu a measure the ob jection raised by tho gold press to tho demand for admission of Arizona aud Now Mexico to tho sisterhood of states. Whenever thoy memorialize congress tho "rotten borough" cry is raised. Wo ato told that Montana aud Idaho and Nevada havinc statehood. vMiiov. tt.t i. fc A 'lafge.a reprejeutUonTsVBafist 5Js?iePree?

Uenco the Ellimvood plan proposes to secuto a measure of homo rule for tho ten itoiies nnd cvndo tho opposition which exists to giving them moro tep rcsontntlou iu congress. Tho News would not be surpilscd to seo tho sug gestion favorably received by tho re publican political bosses and the por tion of tho press which shouts for tho gold standard. NEARLY ALL FOR IT. The editor of tho Florence Tribune asks tho following questions: "What is tho substauco of the homo rule bill for Anzona which Congress will be asked to pass? Who is behiud It? Tho substauco of tho homo rule bill is to givo tho citizens of Arizona the right to elect tho territorial officers and district judges. The citizens w'6o pay tho taxes should havo a voice jin choosing tho officers to handle ind disbtirso the funds derived from taxa tion. As to tho second question the Tucson Citizen answers It partloy when it sftjs: That nine touths of the people favor homo rule. Wo are of opinion that a greater per coat is behind it than stated by the Citizen. In fact tho opposition is confined to the gang aud their satellites. The question is easily ausworcd, thn people aro behind the move regardless of.patty. "Whero aro you going iu such a hurry?" asked Hostotter McGinn is of Johnnie Fewscads. "I am going to old Boudclipper to ask for tho hand of his daughter." "Which one?" "Hint nil depends on what sort of a humor ho is in. If ho is in good humor I'll propose for tho youngest. If ho has a crauky spell I'll proposo for tho oldest." N. Y. World.
