The last Legislature passed a law
calling for an election of delegates to
a constitutional convention, that, ac
cording to said law should be held
this year. There seems to be a dispo
sition to ignore, in this instance,' the
law and let the matter go by default.
Aud the most untenable grounds are
given by the Hoof and Horu against
a cousii'iiiiouai eouvention ami en
deavoring to set forth reasons as
to the evil eflecls of statehood.
The case; cited is that of the state of
Nevada. Figures arc arrayed to show
the ditlereuce between Nevadas' tax
able property aud voting population
with that of this territory, and in that
connection the showing made is in
deed in favor of a move to object to
an election. But, when the question
is viewed from a point from which
can be observed the conditions that
surrounded Nevada when she was ad
mitted and Arizona of to-day knock
ing at the door for admission, so to
speak, why the comparison is vision
ary, to say the least, and the opposi
tion to statehood in this territory on
such a comparison is intended to be
anything than for its good.
It must be remembered that Nevada
was admitted into the sisterhood of
states in the heydey of her renowned
prosperity; a time when men made
millions, as it were, in an hour; a time
when Virginia City had a voting pop
ulation far beyond that now said to be
the entire voting population of the
state. It is tmncccessary to enter into
details as to the causes that led to her
wealth aud mushroom population.
That is a matter of history.
On the other hand Arizona within
whose boundaries, covering the do
main of mineral, agriculture, stock
raising and her immense prospective
lumber industry, lies untold wealth?
with two trans continental rail road
lines running from the rising to the
setting sun; with projecting lines to
intersect the same, affording easy fa
cilities of travel to the emigrant and
capitalist, Nevada is retrograding:
Arizona is propressiiig;both in wealth
and population. She produced more
bullion; raised more cattle and shipped
more beeves; made more lumber; cul
tivated more land last year than ever
before in her history. California
dreads her as a rival in the fruit trade
now. Every inducement is presented
to encourage emigration within her
bounds by the people and it does seem
that if anyone wants to do Arizona
and her struggling inhabitants an iu-
jury it is to oppose statehood and give;
as a reason, tor such a course, that
Arizona will retrograde like Nevada.
It is likely that ignorance would
swallow it, but there is not a school
boy in the laud who understands what
a geographical division is would be
lieve it.
The Tombstone Epitaph is for state
hood and publishes the following let
ter the communication should be care
fully conned because it breathes the
essense of truth and patriotism;
Fort Bowie, Aug. 9, 1889.
Editor Epitaph; At this time there
is some talk of a proposed constitu
tional convention, of rather of the
election of delegates to such a con
vention, whose business it will be to
frame a constitution to be presented
to the Federal Congress (after it has
been ratified by the people), and ask
that Arizona be admitted as a State.
I notice that the timid, and perhaps
over-cautious, are expressing fears
that we are not prepared, etc., etc.
In a measure this may be so, though
there are benefits to be derived from a
condition of statehood that will offset
anv additional burdens that such con
ditions might impose. It is best that
at the earliest moment practical all
people govern themselves, as they are
more apt to know their own wants..
Therefore, is it best that we tako
hold and send our ablest men to this
convention and not, as many seem to
indicate as the wise course, let it go by
default? It perhaps would be bet to
hold a non-partisan election, if such a
thing could be done, but as this is
hardly practicable, let each party put
up their ablest men and elect whom
they can, aud let every man vote as
seems good to him.

from the El Paso Tribune.
As per announcement the South
western Mining Association held a
meeting yesterday afternoon in their
rooms at the Grand Central hotel
and after discussing the action of the
Colorado mining men and their re
solutions, the following local resolu
tions were passed by the association.
which are right and proper aud to the
hercas, At the instance of the
lead monopolists of Colorado a meet
ing of citizens was recently held in
the city of Denver, the object of which
was to protest against the free im
portation of lead ores from Mexico
and other countries, and certain reso
lutions to that end were adopted; and
whereas, it is the manifest aim of
these monopolists, by means of false
statements, to encourage the rise of
public opinion demanding the repeal
of the law now in force on the subject
of such importations, and a reversal
of the rulings heretofore made bv dif
ferent secretaries of the treasury, by
which the introduction of such ores
from Mexico has made the exchange
of commodities with that country a
source of profit and advantage, in al
most every branch of trade, to western
Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, and
especially to the infant industries of
these communities; and whereas, such
resolutions seek to break down and
destroy the smelting interests of the
southwest by denying the importa
tion of "fluxing ore essential to the
smelting of the dry and refractory
ores which are the products of Texas,
New Mexico and Arizona, thus forcing
such dry and refractory ores to pass
into the hands of these monopolists;
and whereas, the further growth and
prosperity of the southwest, already
well advanced, has been, is now and
will continue to be mainly dependent
on the commercial relations hitherto
and now subsisting between Mexico
and the United States; and whereas,
to insure the continuance of this pros
perity, and to encourage the growth of
that section, every channel of trade
for the importation of American ores
to be.employed in payment for the ex
portation of American products and
manufactures, should be kept open and
constantly widened and deepened by
the legislation of congress and the just
and even-handed rulings of the secre
tary of the treasury; and whereas, that
section with its many new and well
equipped smelting plants, and Mexi
can silver-lead ores, introduced free
of duty, combines ample conditions
and facilities for the profitable reduc
tions of its own ores, thereby saving
from waste a large per cent on account
of the treatment of dry and refractory
ores, and the freight thereon to the
monopoly smelters of Colorado.
Therefore, be it resolved by the El
Paso and Southwestern Mining Asso
ciation: First, That in behalf of the mining
interests of Texas, New Mexico and
Arizona, we condemn the methods and.
purposes of the resolution referred to,
and claim, from the government of the
United States, protection and equal
Second, That the expressions at
tributed by the press, to J. A. Samp
son, the newly accredited consul to the
City of Juarez, Mexico, if true, show
him unworthy of the trust committed
to his charge, and his speedy recall
ought to be made as an assurance of
good faith on the part of the high of
ficials whose fairness has been im
pugned. Third, That copies thereof be for
warded to the secretaries of the state
and treasury departments and to each
member of Congress from the state of
Texas, New Mexico aud Arizona.
A Good Appetite

season it is often lost, owins to the

wonderful medicine for creating an
appetite, toning the digestion, and giv
ing strength to the whole system.

A High Compliment.
For a number of years past the en
terprising firm of Johnson & Field
manufacturers of Fanning Mills and
Dtistless Grain Separators, have been
shipping their goods to Casablanca,
Morocco. That they have given satis
faction, the following extract from
their correspondent will show:
'Mr. II. who is British Vice Consul
here, and at the head of a large firm,
and who has used your mills before,
requests me to send you tlie enclosed
order, and said to me to-day, that he
was highly pleased with the result of
your Mills. He said there was no
other machines in this place worth a
rap alongside of the American ma
chines. "You see"' said he "the others
are always getting out of order, and
when they do work, they clean only
about half as much as these American
mills. The small farm mill I got
from you through my correspondents
in Xew York, some six years ago, the
first cost of which was $20 I sold last
week after six veers use, for $40. If
your establishment was handy like
London, you would get more orders.
The people here never think of buy
ing anything until they are in want of
it. Then when they find it takes so
jong to get it from you they can't af
ford to wait and send oil to England
or France for machines." Racine
