Of all the Arizona Federal appointees
named so far, the Chief Justiceship is
the only one on which the Tmbcne has
missed its guess, which shows that
this paper keeps tolerably well posted.
Pisal. county so far has secured a
Judge, the United States Marshal anil
an Indian agent, which is doing fairly
"well, though there are several applica
tions for other positions to be heard
from. "
Now that the Florence Tbibunk has
no further uso for its tow-line, having
yanked in all the fat offices it particu
larly cares for, the same is respectfully
tendered the Tucson Citizen and Phce
vix rierald.
Do the esteemed Fhosnis newspapers
still consider the Hon. Fletcher M.
Doan a judicial possibility? In not a
solitary one of those celebrated
"specials" was the gentleman's name
even mentioned.
The Mohave Miner considers it folly
for a Governor to offer large rewards
for murderers, and a few months after
they are captured and convicted to
have the same Governor pardon them
Arizonans are too forgiving by half.

The Tribune predicts that Judge
Sloan will make a better record during
his second term on the bench than he
did in his first. He is no longer handi
capped by the Cameron influence; he
is an able lawyer with a good judicial
mind, and has it in his power to make
an excellent record for himself.
The three Ohio men whom President
' "MeKinley has named for Associate Jus
tices of the Supreme Court of Arizona
ought to be able to stand Off the Chief Jas
tice from Minnesota. But the Chief Jus.
tice U all right, and the people of Ari
zona, irrespective of party, will stand
by him as long as he shows a disposition
to do right.
The neighbors and friends of Judge
Fletcher M. Dean, with one accord, ex
tend to him their "warmest congratula
tions over his appointment as Associate
Justice of the Supreme1 Court of Ari
zona, which was made by the President
last Saturday. He and his estimable
family have "been residents of Florence
for a number Of years and are held in
the highest esteem. It is the firm
belief of the Tribune thai Judge Doan
will prove a credit to the bench.
Caj it be possible, as charged by the
Hilver Belt and Tucson Star, that our"
Old friend and well-wisher, Colin
Cameron, has a "rake-off" In addition
to his salary as Chairman of the Live
Stock Sanitary Commission; from the
sale of stray cattle belonging to people
throughout the territory. The Tbi-
bune refuses to believe it. And yet
Colin has been accused of nearly all
the other crimes in the calendar, and
manages to stand in with every admin
istration. He's a sleek one, sure.
Dock Evans, who is opposing Me
Cord's confirmation so vigorously, is
the same individual who came to "Flor
ence during the last campaign billed
to make a speech frem the gold stand
point. As the Pinal County Republi
can convention had adopted resolutions
which went further in advocating
"silver monometallism" than anything
attempted by the opposition, Evans
was prevented from speaking by the
worthy gentlemen who were trying to
perpetrate a fraud on the'people. How
ever,, this fact did not prevent the
Phoenix Republican front publishing
' bis speech in full under scare headlines,
"Enthusiasm at Florence," etc.,' etc.,
Considering the villainous charges
that have gone to Washington against
so many applicants for office in Ari
zona, the President is not far wrong
in naming some of his appointees from
outside the Territory. It is not to be
wondered at that the eastern opinion
of us is that we are a tough lot. But
it is now charged that one of the for
eign judges recently named is ns tough
as any of us. Tins Js a wicked world.
One of the first acts of the Supreme
Court, after being organized, will prob
ably be to return the Federal Court
of the Second Judicial District to Flor
ence, where it properly belongs; from
which place it was removed as a piece
of spite work by a judge who dragged
the ermine in the dirt by so doing.
Florence contains a Court House and
jail well fitted for doing the United
States business, while the same cannot
be said of the place to which the Court
was removed. A jail, from which
condemned murderer recently escaped
by digging through the walls with his
finger nails, is hardly the place to con
fine United States prisoners.
Though we may not deafen our
neighbors with Ihe din of anvils and
firearms, nor spend our money on fire
crackers and torpedoes, let us not for
get to pay our respects in some way to
"Old Glory," our star-strewn and
bright-hued emblem. Let ns teach
the children what those stars and
stripes mean, and also teach them to
love them as a representative of the
grandest country ever given to man.
"Flag; of the free heart's hope and home.
By angel hands to valor given.
Thy stars have lit the welkin done
And al! thy hues were born in heaven."
In connection with this subject we
find the Birth of the American Flag
given in the Los Angeles Times as
follows :
A young widow, Betsy Ross by name, first
wrought the flag of the United States. His
tory states that she was both youne and
handsome, and the mother of two bright
children. When Congress met soon after the
signing: of the Declaration of Independence
it was agreed that the new nation should
tave a new banner of its own, and that each
of tit? thirteen nw colonies should discard
the English tlack and other designs hitherto
used. A commit (Consisting of George
Washington and two other gentlemen, who
figured in history t!tlmt time, were appoint'
ed and that committee turned Hie making of
artist with her needle, and her fame had
spread on account of the gorgeous rufSes
she had hemmed for Washington's shirt
bosoms. These were all the go those days
and Betsy Ross knew just how to get them
up, but little did she itnow that some day
her needle work wonld win for her a place
in history so important as the making of it
first Hag, .
After being filled ior weeks with
glowing accounts of the Queen's
Jubilee, the papers of both continents,
with a natural reaction, give room to
the grumbles and growls the size and
number of which are in accord with' the
size of the Jubilee. Asking enormous
prices for their Beats, the speculators
did not dispose of many of them, and
grumble that they lost money thereby;
People went a-sight-Beeing and not
shopping, and the shop-keepers growl
that there was so little buying. And
then when one gets so tired with sight
seeing that one isn't hungry, of course
the restaurant men have good grounds
for a grnmble too, anil when a thou
sand coffins are made ready for the
victims of the numerous expected
accidents (as was actually done by one
undertaker) and the accidents didn't
occur well really there does seem to
be good cause for all this growling; and
bne may believe that it isn't so bad
after all to live where they don't even
celebrate the Fourth of July. But the
other side of the picture shows the
Americans so much in evidence' at the
Jubilee that our English cousins
should not let it be seen how eager
they were to relieve them of their
money, and that they had anticipated
so large a harvest from the "Yankees."
And then, too, the latest dispatches' tell
that the Prince of Waies has started a
new style of hat cause' for another
jubilee. But then there is no satisfy
ing some people. ;
A prayer ought to be a solemn thing.
It was anything but solemn in the
senate a .day or two ago, says the
Washington Post. Rev. Hugh: John
ston, of that city, wa? the acting chap
lain. In the course of his speech he
thanked God for the glorious era of
prosperity, which was sweeping over
the country. Senator Jones, of Arkan
sas, whose head was reverently bent,
smiled as these words fell upon his ear.
He could not help it. Senator Vest
almost laughed out loud. All the
Democrats were visibly amused; nor
was there' a sober face among the Re
publicans. It was quite evident that
the senator's regarded the clergyman's
gratitude as being a little premature.
Object of Silver Republican Conference.
From the National Watchman.
The Silver Republicans began to as
semble in Chicago Monday for their
conference Tuesday. A considerable
number arrived early aud were in con
sultation with Chairman Towne, ex
Senator DuBois, Senator Pettigrew and
Representatives Hartmau and Jones.
The headquarters of the committee were
at the Leland Hotel.
The meeting ;. was technically one of
the provisional national committee of
the Silver Republican party for the pur
pose of effecting a thorough organiza
tion of the party, and the call was for
one representative from each State.
More than thirty States were repre
sented and over a hundred representa
tives were present.
It was in no sense a national conven
tion, but the conference was one of
great political importance in its bearing
upon the course of the silver forces in
the future. The union between the
various elements that made up the sil
ver forces of last year, Democrats,
Populists, Silver Republicans and the
so-called Silver party, was but loosely,
drawn, and the organization was not
such as to be effective. Since then
these elements have been drifting along
together, in some respects mare - in
harmony than during the late camiaign,
but not drawn together by any deinite
plan of action.
The object of the Silver Republicans,
as stated by .Chairman Towne, is to
take steps which will lead to uniiy of
action and establish an organization
that will lead to effective work. The
avowed object is unity and intelligent
co-operation; and the intention is to de
vote ourselves to the task of establish
ing complete harmony of action be
tween the Democrats, Populists, and
Silver Republicans.
The first step toward this will be to
perfect the national organization, so
that our forces can be directed in a
manner to co-operate with all other
elements of the silver aggregation. A
permanent national committee, State
and county committees, will be estab
lished, and an organization made even
down to election districts and pre
cincts, and the enrollment of Silver Re
publicans in clubs will be secured
Ihe object is to gather in a body those
silver men who are, or who have been,
Republicans and who are devoted to the
silver cause, without being willing to
join either the Democratic or the Popu
list parties, and then so to direct their
as if all the silver forces were enrolled
in one party.
Chairman Towne further said that
the organization of Silver Republicans
in those States most important to the
contest they are making has been pro
gressing very rapidly, especially vln
Ohio, where a fight is to occur this
coming fall. The importance of the
movement, whether looked upon with
friendly or unfriendly eyes, will be
seen in connection with the Ohio Sen
atorial fight, which is the closest at
The Silver Republicans are organiz
ing in Ohio to help the Democrats and
Populists defeat Mr. Hanna and elect a
silver Democrat to the Senate from
The object is to make a fight at every
poiot right oh through until after the
presidential election, four years hence,
uniting on the candidate of one ele
ment or the other of the silver combina
tion in each field, so as to prevent a
division of the silver strength. They
want the silver candidates everywhere,
whether lor the legislature, for Con
gress, or what not, to be the com-rion
candidates of the allied silver parties.
They will cftrfy this principle into the
fight for every United States Senator
where there is any chance of a silver
man being elected, and into the Con
gressional fight a year from next fall.
By this means they expect an increase
in the number of silver men in the
United States Senate and to Capture
the next House of Representatives.
The Silver RepUblicansJwill use their
influence and power as a moderator be
tween the various elements. Their
plan will be to urge harmony and to
compel it where necessary if they ean.
Their plan will be to place themselves
into such a position through the
strength of their organization that
they can say to both tlie Democrats
and the Populists that they do not In
tend to fuse with one against the other,
but will fuse with both, and insist that
the silver forces be kept together.
They disavow any intention of indepen
dent action, except to the extent of
maintaining their own organization,
and in the name of the cause which
they represent to throw the weight of
their disapproval upon any faction in
either party which refuses to harmonize
and endeavors to create discord.. Their
object will be to co-operate with the
silver men everywhere and to help
every silver candidate by whatever ele
ment put forward, and to exert their
influence as far as possible to prevent
silver candidates of different elements
being pvit up against each other to di
vide the strength.

The Newly-Appointed Judiciary.
From the Tucson Star.)
Telegrams announcing the atmoint-
ment by the president of the following
named gentlemen to compose the ju
diciary of Arizona, were received in
Tucson yesterday afternoon: Hiram
C. Tmesdale, chief justice; George R.
JJavis, for the first judicial district;
Fletcher M. Doan, second district, and
Richard E. Sloan, fourth district.
Judges Truesdale and Davis are com
paratively recent acquisitions to our
territory, they both dating their
acquaintance with Arizona at some per
iod during last winter, when they
reached Phoenix. Soon after Judge
Truesdale was admitted to the bar of
Maricopa county, but so far as we are
informed, he did not attempt to enter
into practice, being understood to be
interested in some irrigation enterprise
of that section, ne is from Minnesota,
and said to bean acquaintance of Attorney-General
McKenoa. Judge Davis
is from Ohio, and said to be a personal
fiyend of President MeKinley and also
of Senator Hanna. , He is about 37
years of age, and was during the cam
paign of '96 a member of the Republi
can state central committee. From
those who have met these gentlemen
in Phoenix we gather that they brought
with them from their former homes
the reputation of ability and standing
in their profession. Personally 'they
have favorably impressed those with
whom they have been brought in con
tact, aud if, as stated, they are per
sonally known to the higher officials
responsible for their appointment, it is
but reasonable to suppose the ap
pointees are fully capable and worthy
of the appintments.
Judge Doan is by no means a stran
ger iu Arizona. For eight or nine
years he has been a resident of Pinal
county, .and filled the office of district
attorney in that county in the years
1895-6. He has not been active in pol
itics, nor especially so in the practice
of his profession, giving his attention
largely to his agricultural and irriga
tion interests. Personally and profes
sionally he has the confidence and re
spect of those who best know him. He
is from Missouri (originally from the
state of Ohio) ard said to be a per
sonal friend and formerly a warm polit
ical supporter of that Republican war
horse Chauncey I. Filley, of that state.
Judge Sloan is so well known here
that it is unnecessary to refer to his
Important Purchase.
From the Tombstone Prospector.
a deal has been consumated bv which
the famous copper mines of Naeo&ari,
oonora, have been transferred bv the
Gugenheims of Monterey, to a Daw
syndicate of Americans comDosed in
part of the firm of Phelps, Dodge &
Co., of New York, who are the owners
of the Copper Queen Con. mines of
The deal means a trreat deal to the
copper prodmcing industry of the
country in general and to Cochise
county in particular. The building
of a railroad, or rather the extension
of the Arizona and South Eastern,
from Bisbee to the mines, will be one
of the first moves under the new
management, toward the rehabilita'
tion those famous mines; as it is
generally conceded that if the Dro-
perty had received such careful and
economic management as has alwavs
characterized the Copper Queen, they
might have been made dividend pay
ing long asro; but lack of facilities
have been too heavy a handicap and
the transfer of title will no doubt,
soon demonstrate the truthfulness of
this assertion.
A reconnoisance having for its ob
ject the permanent location of the line
of survey is now beinff made, arid since
the Copper Queen people have taken
hold we confidently expect to hear of
the beginning of construction within
a very short period
The ores, which are rich sulphide,
will probably be run into matte and
shipped to the works at Bisbee for
further refinement.
The Declaration of Independence Saved
by a Woman.
In a historical article recalling the
destruction of bur National capital by
the British force, in 1814 Clifford How
ard in the July , Ladies Home Journal
will show that Dolly Madison, the most
beloved and popular woman of her day,
was courageous and fearless in the face
of grave danger. In the mad stampede
from Washington that preceded the
invasion by ihe British troops, Dolly
Madison was the last to seek safety in
flight, and her final tict before quitting
the White" House,' as the enemy advanc
ed, was to seiie the Delaratibn of Inde
pendence and carry it with her to a
place" of s'afety. As the White House
was immediately afterwards looted
and burned by the British, Mr. Howard
declares' that but for brave Dolly
Madison the priceless parchment would
have been destroyed..
They say one of the charges filpd
against the riew Chief Justice's confir
mation is; that he drinks. Well, that
is a serious charge, if true, but ha will
have to be a soaker if he can get within
a mile of his predecessor in that line.
We guess the charge is like the others,
only the result of an outburst of disap
pointment. Tucson Star;

To the Senate and House of Representa
tives of the United States in Con
gress Assembled:
We, your Memorialists, the" Nine
teenth Legislative Assembly of the
Territory of Arizona, respectfully rep
resent that the National Irrigation
Congress, held in Phoenix, Arizona, on
the 15th of December, A. D. 1896,
unanimously adopted the following :
Whereas, The Pima andJIaricopa Indians
tribes numbering in the aggregate ten
thousand souls, have been deprived of the
waters used by them m irrigation before the
advent of the white race in America, through
the appropriation of such 'waters by settlers
on the headwaters of the Gila river ; and
"Whereas. Through the loss of such waters
the lands onco cultivated by these tribes have
become barren and worthless, and the mem
bers of such tribes have, become a charge on
the Government, and forced by the loss of
their fields into lives, of degradation and
penury; and
Whereas, Such tribes have from the ear
lie! days been the friends and allies of the
white race; and
Whereas, The people of the United States
have pledged themselves by solemn treaty to
protect such tribes In their property and
property rights; and
Whereas, The Government of the United
States ha and mow Is engaged in the expendi
ture of hundreds of thousands of dollars for
the construction of works of irrigation for
the reclamation of lands belonging to other
Resolved. .That this Congress do approve
the proposed .construction, under the plans
of the U. S. Geo logical Survey, of the Buttes
reservoir, In Pin ttl county, Arizona, recently
reported, to agai t reclaim the lands of these
tribes, believing i'hat by so doing can the
Government alone- honorably redeem th
broken pledges ma de by it to these people,
and thas preserve from further want and
degradation two of the surviving Indian
tribes of the America n continent that have
always been the consta nt friends of the white
Resolved, That we approve the proposed
construction of such rtwervoir not only as
just and philanthropic, Put as economical
and good policy, as in a co mparatively short
time the expense of maintaining such In
dians as Government charge will far-exceed
the cost of the irrigation works required to
make them a self-supporuing and self-respecting
Now, therefore, your Memorialists,
the Nineteenth Legislative Assembly
of the Territory of Arizona, desire to go
on record as earnestly endorsing the
above recommendations of the Sixth
National Irrigation Con;jress for the
following reasons:
1. The reservoir site referred to
having been withdrawn from entry by
Government authorities, cannot now
be utilized by any private corporation,
and the Government therefore occupies
the indefensible position of doing noth
ing itself or allowing any one else to
improve this great natural reservoir
2. We firmly believe that the inter
ests of humanity dictate that the In
dians should be gathered on the reser
vations, have lands allotted to them in
severalty, and that they be furnished
with farming implements and an inex
haustible supply of water for irriga
tion of their lands, to the
end that they may become self-
supporting. By this means will a
home life be furnished for the Indian
and he will more rapidly advance in
civilization as a consequence. He will
abandon his nomadic life; his children
will be kept at home and educated in
neighborhood schools, instead of being
sent to large Indian schools at a dis
tance where they are kept (as it would
seem) for mere ' pursoses of show.
After being instructed" in the arts of
civilization for a time they are returned
to savagery, to become more unhappy
and discontented than if they had
never received the questionable advan
tages. We feel that the present policy
of the Indian department is all wrong
in tliis regard.
3. The Pima and Msricopa Indian
reservation contains 350,000 acres of as
fertile laud as lies within the bound
aries of Arizona, and is admirably
adapted for homes for these people, as
claim for other ,
"Just as s

well as the wandering Papagoes, who
are now compelled to prey upon the
herds of our farmers and ranchmen for
4. The construction of a storage res
ervoir at the Buttes by the Govern
ment offers a plain business proposi
tion for the correction of these evils.
Resolved, That the Secretary of the
Territory be instructed to transmit a
copy of the foregoing Memorial to our
Delegate and Delegate-elect in Con
gress, and also a copy each to the Presi
dent of the Senate and Speaker of the
House of Representatives.
A story is being told here of a man
who recently died and went to Heaven.
Being from Tucson, he expected to be
well received. He rapped on the great
gate, and a gruff voice from within
asked what was wanted. He replied .
that he wanted to see St. Peter. The
man with the strange voice replied, "St.
Peter is not here any more, a man from
Ohio has been appointed in his place."
