Denver News.
States District
Ellinwoodof Atizona,
in an interview
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

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.
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

"Astronomical discoveries of great
value aro reported by Dr. T. J. J.

Seo says that tho Arizona air is cloaror
