Th auditorial tn last week's Oasis re
Igarding the fecundity of cats is highly
Interesting from a scientific point of
View, but decidedly nasty from a moral
Standpoint.
Thsbe is no doubt that three-fourths
of the American people to-day are in
favor of the free and unlimited coinage
of silver, and if given a fair opportunity
they will hi vote.
Florekce and Casa Grande are des-
tined to become two of the leading
Cities of Arizona, simply because they
ftiave the best natural advantages,
iich can not long be allowed to lie
dormant.
Tne letter of Ex-Gov. R. C. Powers
'on the silverqnestion, published in this
issue of th. Tbtbuke, is well worthy of
a careful perusal. It is a fair and con-
cise statement of the na.ramonnt
now before the people.
It is amusing to see the Oasis take its
competitor, the Vidette, to task for
"swiping" its news items without
credit. There is no paper in the ter
ritory more addicted to the unprofes
sional act than the Oasis.
The Court of Private Land Claims
will hold its next session in Tucson on
April 6th, when it is confidently be
lieved that the San Rafael and other of
the fraudulent land grants which have
been the curse of Southern Arizona will
be knocked into smithereens.
Jodge 1. J. Hawkins is mentioned as a can
didate for Congress. The Democracy could
not choose wiser.- -Flagstaff Democrat.
Some of those railroad men whom
Judge Hawkine sentenced to the Yav
apai eounty;jail for taking part in the
" big strike ought to be glad of the op
portunity to vote for him.
There is no other section of Arizona
that is attracting the attention of the
home-seeker as is the Casa Grande val
ley. Those desiring to get in on the
ground floor had better get a move on
themselves. At present property can
be bought for a song that will make
one rich in a few years.
Mr. J. H. Braley, President of the
Bank of Southern California of Los
Angeles, and owner of the magnificent
Kenilworth ranch, near Florence, came
in Wednesday and went up to the site
of the proposed Butte reservoir on
Thursday. Mr. Braley expresses every
confidence in the grand future before
the Case Grande valley, which will cer
tainly be realized when the question of
a permanent water supply is settled.
Vjaits from such men, who command
the confidence of capital, are worth
much to our community.

be heard the Arizona militia had been
ordered out. i
Fi?teeS Republican Senators voted
for the free coinage substitute for the
House bond bill, which passed the Sen-
ale by a vote of 42 to S5, and three He
publican Senators who would have

Tub Phoenix Republican concedes
that the nominee of the Republican
party will be "an Eastern man with
gold environments, but insists, on
the West and South securing in the
platform some concessions for silver.
The experience of the people with both
the old parties for the past few years
has been such as to make them willing
to accept any good man who wants to
do right, without any platform. As a
rule, platforms mean nothing, and are
twisted and warped to Suit everybody
As has been tritely remarked, they ere
made to get in On, not to stand On.
Edwin Fikld, otherwise known as
the "Duke of the Gilded Age," died
pauper in Chicago last week. He
owned a wild-cat mining claim at
Tombstone which never produced
pound of ore, and sold the surface
ground for town lots at an exhorbit-
ant figure. Another Tombstone mag
nate, Townsite Clark, through fraud
and collusion with one Randall, the
first Mayor of Tombstone, obtained
title to most of the ground on which
the city now stands, and he also died
in the poor house. It rarely happeas
that money obtained illegitimately
does any good.
Last Monday Joseph Sullivan was
brought to Florence and lodged in the
county hospital, with a bullet in his
head. It entered just below the left
temple, destroying the sight of one
eye. The wound was received t Mari
copa the day before, at the hands of
Conductor Long, of the Southern Pa
cific railroad, while Sullivan was at
tempting to steal a ride. His condi
tion is dangerous, and the wound is
likely to result in death. Joseph is
evidently of the genus hobo, but that
is no reason why the felony, if one has
been committed, should not be fully in
vestigated, and the perjietrator pun
ished. Some of these braUcmen and
conductors are getting to be entirely
too handy with their guns.
Hos. M. H. McCord, member of the
Board of Control, in his address before
the Territorial" Agricultural Society in
Phoenix, last month, struck the key
note when he said : "Every man who
believes in the nerf,t rWlnnmr,t f
I x- -
, our country should support a national
! system of irrigation; that is the only
' way thd vacant space in our national
' domain can be rounded out and our
country made sympathetical. Should
1 this government take hold and
carry out such a work- whlch H could
d and DeVer feel the C08t- evea " il
! rlnired "ne or tw millions of dollars,
I the nlShtr southwest (which means
Korthern Texas, New Mexico, South,
ern Colorado, Arizona, Southern Utah
and Southern California), which con
tains such vast areas of now useless
land, would become a veritable para
dise." Gov. Powers on the Silver Question.
The following letter from Gov. R. C.
Powers, of Prescott, to a friend in
Kansas, was published recently in the
Wichita, Kansas, Eagle. It lias the
true silver ring to it:
Prescott, Ariz., Jan 23, 1890. H.
E. Lewis, Wichita, Kansas, My Dear
Colonel In regard to the attitude of
the Republican party of the territory
upon the silver question, to Which you
refer in your last friendly letter, I have
this, to aay : The party is practically
unanimous in favoring the free and
unlimited coinage of silver. The two
prominent reasons that have led to
this unanimity of sentiment, I believe,
are, First, silver equally with gold was
the money recognized by the founders
of the republic and contemplated in
the constitution of the United States
when power was granted to Congress,
"to coin money and regulate the- Value
thereof," and, Second, it is one of the
most important productions of our
country, and as such Bhonld be upheld.
Ko money power, domestic or foreign,
influenced the men who organized this
government in adoptipg gold and silver
as the metals provided by the Almighty
as the best adapted when used together
to supply the people (then poor in
purse, but rich in patriotism) with an
indestruotible money currency, cap
able of supplying all their wants. So
long as both metals were left on an
equality, they were the basis of a
perfectly satisfactory circulation, and
the country advanced rapidly in pros
perity and wealth. It was an evil
hour when silver was clandestinely
deposed from the high position it had
held as a money metal for more then
eighty years in the history of this coun
try, and the result has teen destruc
tive of every material i.ik'rest of the
peripl. If we would have prosperity
permanently restored we should mak
haste to return to the traditions of tli;
fathers.
You and I believe in the protective
policy of the Republican party. How
then can we be consistent and not cuir
demn the discriminations against silver,
one of the most valuable productions of
the country? The silver mining, in
dustry is to day inferior to the gold
mining industry in the United States
only because silver ha been robbed oi
its coinage value, while gohl has. ben
enhanced by being required to do
double service as a money metal. If
the order of discrimination was "re
versed, aud the coinage value of cld
should be curtailed or destroyed, as
the coinage value of silver has beei, is
it supposiible that gold would recain
anything like its present value?
But it is argued that we cannot Have
two standards that the ratio of values
cannot De adjusted between two ntals
au gut, Buumiy anu nmioiroita Is
it not, singular that it has taken this
country eignty years to find on. so
simple u matter? It is still more
singular that we did not find k out
until it was to the interest of Great
Britain aud other European nati ns to
have us find it out. Suppose it i not
an entirely easy matter to adjuss, the
coinage ratio of value between gold
and silver, would that justify the
United States, as a gold and silver pro
ducing country, in destroying the
coinage value of either metaljr in
crippling one more then the othei 1
hat would be said of a farmer, who,
having a team of oxen unevenly yoked,
should cripple or kill one to secure
uniformity, or, if you please, standard
ox power? His idiocy would probably
be told in dimunitiou of his crops and
his final bankruptcy.
It is an unjustiSabla reaection upon.
American statemanship to say that the
gold and silver delved from our mines
cannot be evenly yoked together in
such mauner as to uphold'the fr.l coin
age value of both metals. Tie pro
tective policy of the Republican party
fully applied to the mining irdustry
must necessarily lead to the unlimited
coinnge of silver. I look forward with
confidence to the next Republican
national convention for an oui -spoken
declaration in the party platfor'n upon
this subject; and if, happily, William
McKinley, of Ohio, shall ba tho stand
ard, be-rfr, tiie country wi!. have I
undoubted assurance that the pledge
will be honestly and faithfully carried
out so far at least as the dief execu
tive is concerned. 1
The position maintained by the re-'
tainers of the money power, that a
uniform standard of value can onlv be
secured by- exclusive gold coinage is
abused. It is a fact known by til un
prejudiced observers, as we 1 as to
those whose interest it is.to try to con
ceal it, that, just in the ratio Ahat the
coinage value of silver has 3.en des
troyed, the coinage value of gold has
been enhanced because of the- addi
tional duty it is called upon to perform.
We have not therefore a uniform cur
rency in the single gold standard, but
a currency in the single erold standard.
constantly appreciating in value and
becoming more and more oppressive to
tne ueoi paying class or our people and
inadequate to the wants of trade.
Now, is it not the part of wisdom to
bring the two money metals into closer
relationship by lessening tbe value of
gold and restoring silver to its natural
(juoiii iu vi equality; J, or stiould we
wait for the co-operation of all or any
of the European governments in this
matter any more than we do in regard
to our iron or steel or tin or wool and
other important industries that demand
protection in order that all the re
sources of our country may be proper
ly developed.
When the United Statei takes the
initiative in restoring the full coinage
value of silver, it will then be in order
for our statesmen to bring the full
power of this goverrment to bear upon
the nations with which we have in
tercourse to induce them to accept our
silver just as we- try to make it to
their interest to accept our other sur
plus productions.
Now, my dear colonel, the discussion
is oa; the interests of seventy millions
of people are at stake, our silver lined
mountain ranges towering heaven
ward look down upon us ready to
yield np their treasures and bless the
natioafct the. ommand of bon a,t toilers,
and the agitation will not cease until
the divorcu proceedings between gold
and silver are set aside, and the wis
dom cf the fathers that made them
one currency is fully recognized.
Respectfully yours, U. C. Powers.
