A letter from William O. Rice, acting President of the Civil Service Commis sion, says that the supply of "eligiules" for the railway mail service from the territory of Arizona is not eqnal to the demand.

Word is received that an old mining pioneer of Arizona is no more, in the person of John Kron, who died at Minas Prietas, and was buried Oct. 12th in the local cemetery, at the age cf 55. In this section he was known as the discoverer of the Orizaba mine, located south of Casa Grande about thirty miles, from which he shipped $00,000 worth of chloride ores. It recorded that he provided his table with frniia, jellies, wines and luxuries to such an extent that ihe board cost $4 per week more per man than the miner paid, and should any luckless chap have refused to drink with his employer, he could at ouce call at the "captain's desk" nnd walk out of the camp. His eccentricities were proverbial, ludicrous frequently, but so generous,' hearty end faithful to his friends was he, that his memory will linger pleasantly with thosu who enjoyed his close friendship. Born near Geneva,- Switzerland, he enjoyed a splendid education, and was an expert at watch and musical instru ment making, being an expert gnitar and piano performer. He was versed in French and Latin, was deeply read in the classics, and at his advanced ago, under trying conditions of life,' ha boasted of his knowledge of current literature and the topics of the day. Another Campaign Lie Nailed. Florence, October 23, 183ff. To the Editor Florence Tribune: Sir: I am reliably informed that E. O. Stratton, the McKinley gold-bng candidate for sheriff, has been exhibit ing at the Mammoth and other points a list of the names cf Florence Demo crats he claims to be pledged to vote for him, and that my name is on that list. If this is trne, I desire hereby to warn the people of the San Pedro against being deceived by this class of electioneering trick. I am a. life-long Democrat, but also an uncompromising silver man and no condition or consid eration could induce me to vote for Stratton or any other gold-bug, Mc Kinley Republican pf his ilk for the smallest office in the county. Even were l a Republican, I would not vote for Stratton, as I am a tax-payer, and thoroughly larailiar with the official record of this mat), who is a tax-eater and not a tax-payer. Your truly, Thos. F. Weedis, Chairman Democratic County Central Committee. Notice to Water Consumers, .Consumers of water under the Casa Grande Valley Canal are hereby not ified to call at the office of said company and make their applications for the water desired by them for the year lbm:nnc ing November 1st, 1880, priot to that date. ) Applications must be mili by the owners of the land cultivated. o24-2t Geo. W. Saxders, P.eceiver. Dr. Goodfellow, who is well-known throughout Arizona, has an able ar ticle occupying six columns of the Los Angeles Times, on the. snbject pf con sumption. His conclusions are as fol lows: (1) consumption is not a germ disease; (2) is not contagious or infec tious; (3) is not communicable from in dividual to individual, or from animals living or dead to man, (4) and proof to the contrary is challenged. Do you remember the adage that "Prevention is better, than eure?" This is just the time of the year to ex ercise a little care to prevent sickness. Go get some Simmons Liver Regulator, liquid or powder, and take it to rid your body of any poison and tone up the system. It will save much suffer ing and life. "It is a safe and reliable medicine, and a great preventive of sickness." Rev. Jas. Rollins, Fair field, Va. A distinguished party of gentlemen from the Territorial University were at Kenilworth last Saturday investigating the condition of the orchards and vine yards. The party comprised Wm. St owe Devol, Professor of Agriculture; Robert H. Forbes, Professor of Chemis try, and James W. Tourney, Professor of Biology. They wee driven up from Casa Grande by Receiver Sanders, and carae for the purpose of making an analysis of the soils and water. Their report will be eagerly watched for, as it will doubtless prove valuable to the horticulturists of that favored section. WILLIAMS HOTEL, Mahicopa, Aniz. Tehst Williams Proprietor.

EVERYBODY INVITED. MARK SMITH SOUND ON SILVER, i A MsKinley Club in Final County. The following is an extract from a speech d-livered by Mark Smith in Con gress in 1S92: l!r.. Speaker Some time ago, when a bill amending the funding act of Arizona was under consideration on this floor, I took occasion to advocate the payment of our bonds in gold so that the debt could be floated at 5 per cent interest, and thus save the tax payers of Arizona the sum of $75,000 per annum. The press of the country, under the domiuation of the gold in terest, seized on my statement as an argument in favor of a single gold standard, and thus placed me before the country as a believer in that doc trine. When the present silver debate was opened the gentleman from Massa chusetts (Mr. Villiam3), who pre sented the minority report ou the Bland bill, took occasion to refer to my argument on the funding act and attempted to draw conclusions there- ! from in favor of his side of the con troversy. 1 interrupted the gentleman with the question: "Were we not forced to make the concessions we did make and ask a gold bond, by reason of adverse legislation against silver?" Th's question was not au swered to my satisfaction, and in my opinion cm be answered only by an aGrcnalive admis sion. The fact is that in Arizona we are on practically a gold basis, aci if by making the concract payable in gold we could save the amount before stated, I readily gave my consent to the prop osition made by the loan commission of Arizona. .; Bat why, I ask, was it ever neces sary to ask a gold contract in order to obtain cheap interest on any good debt in the United States? It became necessary by the act of 1873, which demonetized silver and increased the purchasing power of gold. The creditor classes, the money lend ers, having in their possession the larg est part of this favored coin, could at once demand payment in gold, and such demand is made in order to keep this one metal, this one money stand ard, with its accrued and accruing in terest in the hands of the favored few, and by thus concentrating it increase more. its purchasing power. Thi3 is a tendency to evil and evil only. In order to carry out the scheme we are constantly terrorized by the absurd ery of cheap money. The country is grow ing tired of selfish prating of mono polists and money-lenders about a "50 Cent dollar." - .' By the most gigantic and criminal mistake, to use no stronger term, that history on its darkest pages will ever record, the money of the constitution, the money of our fathers, good money, silver money, through which the com mon people transacted three fourths of the business of tile world, was degraded, dishonored and demonetized by aa obscure item in an appropriation bill. Silver was struck down and gold ex alted. Debts contracted under She bimetallic regime were at once largely increased by decreasing the ability to pay. The debtor must pay our dollar nnd a half to acquit himself of a .one dollar obligation. Ye money-lenders who have set up your tables in the tem ple, beware lest they be overturned by a power second only to that of Him who once purged the sacred precincts by driving you hence at the sting of the lash. The Tyranny ot the Desk. We. will suppose that your occupation is sedentary that you are chained, so to speak to the desk in some counting house, or por hapsto the loom in some vast mill where you are compelled to labor from morning till night. Sunday is your only day of relaxation. You return home every evening weavied mentally and bodily. Tour health and strength begin to fail. What will most effect ually recuperate your vital energy? The weight of evidence points to no otlier conclu sion than that Hosfcetter's Stomach Bitters is your safest, most reliable sheet anchor. Use it persistently, and your system will soon regaiu its pristine vigor. Every function will receive a healthful impulse. There is no remedy to equal the Bitters for nervousneis and want of sleep, dyspepsia, constipation and billiousuess. It averts and remedies all forms of malarial disease, and is a preveota tive of rheumatism and neuralgia. lSiejlal t- thaTuci'in Citizen. Flohcsce, Aniz., Ojt. 2V-U, 1336. A McKinley and Ilobart Club has been organized in this county, with this place as its headquarters, for the purpose of advancing the interests of the Republican part1. This has not been done with the view of taking any part in local politics dur ing the present campaign. The organ ization is not to be used either for or against the interests of any candidate now in the field, nor to create anyun pleasant feeling or division in the Re publican party. It is simply intended to unite those who are prepared and willing to rapport the principles adopt ed by the great majority of the true lovers of our country those who be lieve in "Patriotism, Protection and Prosperity." . Many Republicans, as stanch and true friends of silver as the most ram pant follower, of Bryan, holding that silver is not the only, nor the most prom, incut issue of the campaign, and be lieving that theG.O. P. can be safely entrusted to satisfactorily solve this great question, as in the past it has other questions equally serious, have decided to fall into line and prove their faith by their works. Tie club starts oat with a membership of fifty, with four iireeincts ytt to 1iear from. We expect to increase the number to one hundred in a short time. The present officers are : ' , .. Albert T.
