S'iUT OUT THE SCUM. Commissioner-Geueral of Immigra tion Powderly says with wisdom that ''there whs a time when the United States could afford a refuge to the people of the world, but it was before the incomers became oppressors, and when the tide of immigratian to this land cf refuge was cot a tida cf re fute." The American republic ia loaded up with more foreign dead wood tbau it can assimilate in a cen tury; in fact, the element that has been reaching thess shores of lale years has been absolutely of a non nsshr.ilative character to a deplorably large degree, :md that influx should be stopped. We still have room for the intelligent, peaceable, law-abiding peo ple of other countries, if they come in reasonable cumbers, but for the ignorant, besotted and criminal scum cf Ilurope there is no welcome under the flag ol stars. Their coming here should be peremptorily and effectively stopped until those ali-cacy here hae riioWS ihe gallows or died In jail, as many thousands of them are doing from year to year. An Mr. Powderly jays, "Europe should be caused to like ear? cf her own anarchists," leav ing us free to battle with our native Criminals as best we may without burdening this country with an ele ment that brings strife, discord and social unrest to the peril of constitu tional liberty. The party that shall put ;n its platform the plank, "Shut , oat the scum," will gain the fualty of this people, even should other of its tenets be even as unpopular as the tound money plank that made the recent Plutocratic platform a byword and a reporoach. We have succeeded in shutting out the Chinese ; now let us ward from our shores an tlemect that is as much worse than the Mongolian as the Mongolian is inferior to the nabobs of Murray Hill. INTEGRITY OF LAWYERS. The San Franciseo Post, ia discuss ing the subject of "The Importance of Honest Lawyers," well sa.s: That the profession of the law is so mi, mately connected with the welfare of the peo ple that it is the duty of the slate to - look after its integrity and honor. No man should be admitted to the bar who is not a gentleman a roan of educa tion and refinement. Per contra, all lawyers who, after admission, develop a lack of character and respect for the profession should be disbarred. , The law ought to establish eourts of discipline, presided ever by the select members of the profession, to whom might be submitted questions involving the integrity of attorneys. It would jiot do to permit the machinery of "these courts to be set in motion fcy clients, for clients, as a general thing, rob their attorneys unmercifully. But some system might be devised by which a standard of morals could be es tablished for lawyers and all men kept oat of the profession who do not con form to that standard. The founda tions of every state rest upon the in tegrity of its bar. The lawyers make the laws and administer them. It is to them that everybody looks for counsel and advice. They are the intellectual flower of every community. What is more important than that they should be men of the highest honor, character , intelligence and integrity. The reports from the Klondyke remind ns very much of two yonng men who leased a mine in Music mountain several years ago. When they were stoping ore ia the mine they believed it would go fully fifty ounces in gold to the ton, when it went on the dump they valued it at thirty ounces ; when it wag assorted its value had decreased to twenty ounces; on the way to llaekberry its value con tinued to fail until ten ounces was thought to be the right thing, and when loaded into the car and on the avay to the sample at Kingman they were hoping against hope that they might gett their sacks back. The boat leaves Dawson City with $3,000,008; t St. Michael it has shrunk to $1,500, 000 ; at Unalaska, $1,000,000 covers the golden cargo and when the steamer reaches the Golden Gate a few weary miners are landed on the dock with enough dust to pay for a few weeks board.

A Mining Man Gives His Opinion of the Great Producer. From the Plucuis Guiette. George W. Tread well, who ia iu the city from California is the hnu who put up the eighty-stamp mill on-the Vultnre mine, which ia its time made millions for the owners. Mr. Tread well says that the property is far from being worked out, and that the only reason that it ennnot be worked now -with profit is the fact that there Is no wood within thirty miles of the mine. The mine is down but about two hundred feet, and there is evidence that there are thousands of tons of high grade ere in the mine. The water problem is another serious drawback, as the mine in its early days piped water from Brill's place on the llossayampa, to Seymour, a distance of about nine mi!c3, and from there to the mine, about fifteen miles. With the expenditure of alittlemonoy the wood ond water obstacles could be overcome. About sixteen miles from the mine there is a small box canyon in the Hassayampa river. There is never less than 300 inches of water in the river at any titna of the year, and as there is a fall of abont twenty-five feet to the mile at this point, a turbine wheel could bo placed in the river at a convenient point., which would be suffi cient to generate power enouch to run an ji'jctrlcal dynamo, and the power could easily be transmitted to the mine. There is plenty cf water on the loner levels of the mine which could be brought to the surface by a pump oper ated by electricity, which would aUo be salicient to run the stamp mill. No wood in this case would be necessary, and thus cue of the principal handi caps to the working of the mice would be eliminated. If this could be done, and it is en. tirely practicable, the Vulture would be soon in the front rank of producers, and ns about three hundred men would necessarily be employed in the mine, it s easy ta see where I'hnenix would be benefitted. Who says California isn't "full of prunes?" The valueof this year's crop is said to be $20,000,0(30. This ought to be a sufficient quantity of the great American crime-eradicator to bring about the mHlenium. Coeh is not king this year, but it has a dead cinch on the premiership. The wheat shortage will greatly increase the demand for corn, and the price of that commodity is likely to 0 soaring o?E toward the blue empyrean. &,f.as up your breech-loaders, for the game season, crowds up to the front.

Japan appears to have withdrawn from the contest in Hawaii, and the prospects for a peaceable settlement of affairs in those islands are exWmely favorable. That country is to be con gratulated upon knowing just how far to try to mn a bluff and when Vt lay dowa a hand. Statistics show that in Antwerp alone nearly 4,000 horses were slaughtered last year for human consumption, and the number of shops dealing exclusive ly in ho-seflesh In the Belgian ports exceeds 30. The other day, for some infraction of th rules of the household, a little fellow of this town was about to get a whipping. Just as the father was ready to commence operations, the child asked if he could go into the bed room for a moment. Ilia father to.d him that be eonld. Tiptoeing to the door, the man, with a switch in his hand, saw the l'ttlo feliow kaeeling at the bedside and heard him say: ' Ob God, if you want to lml p a little boy, now is yon r time!" f Yuma Sentinel. It is safe to say that a larger per. ceiitage of earnest, intelligent miners who delve in the hills and mountains of Arizona will receive better reward for their labor than of those who go to Klondyke. There is plenty of gold in Alaska, but it takes money to get it, and considering the "expense and the hardships and privations one must pass through, those who succeed will pay dearly for their gold. Aguin we say, that to the intelligent, systematic prospector, Arizona offers a better field than Alaska. Mesa Free Press. Dr. G. A. Scroggs yesterday removed the cast from the injured leg of Wm. Martin's little son of Mesa, who was accidentally shot by an older brother, in the early part of July. The bullet had completely shattered the right leg about half way bet ween the knee and hip. When the wound was first dressed a piece of bone three inches long was removed, but the doctor in sisted that the limb could be saved. On the 13th day of July the leg was plaeed in a cast and when it was re moved yesterday it was fouDd that a perfect union had been formed and that the leg was only about an inch and a quarter shorter than it really ought to bo.

Tte greatest financial geaius of the Rothschild family, though the t have been many of great talent, was Nathan Mayer, of the second generation, who established the house of N. If . T-ochs-child & Co., iu 1708, in Lomlga. He flew to the stars and groveled ic the mud for money. lie -weleojoed all transactions, big or little, wherewith to turn the baaker's penny. He was the most daring speculator of h'm time on the Stock Exchange, and the most suceessful. He had caTierpigeocs end fast-sailing boats to bring hita ihe earliest news from the war centers of Furope, and so help him to manipulate stocks. He followed Wellington's army to Waterloo in person, and hod relays of the swiftest horses, and a fast ja'-ht lying in the harbor at Ostend, So he arrived at the London Stock Exchaage, after the battle, 12 honrs ahead of any public announcement of the victory, and made 5,000,000 by one of the most tremendous series of speculations in history. In 1810, when the Duke of Wellington, then eommandibg in Spain, drew on the English Government for 3,000,000, and the English Treasury was short, Nathan bought the drafts at a big discount and at once sent the money. The stories about this re markable man are almost endless, and show how strangely he was alike equal to the most tremendous schemes aad the pettiest tricks of avarice.

A counterfeit of the five-dollarTTnited States silver certificate, . series of 1, wns forwarded a few days ago 1 o the secret service bureau at the treas ury department from Chicago.

L - ci i-.i -Jf SO Ks Jj i HOU35 MEMORIAL No. 4. To the Senate and House of Representa tives cf the United States in Can Qres3 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. 1830, unanimously adopted the following : Whereas, The Piina and Muricopa Indians tribes numbering ia the aisSretrato ten thousand souls, hav been deprived of the waters used by them in irritation before the advent of the white race in America, tbroiij,-!! tie appropriation of such waters by settlers on the headwaters of theGila river; and Whereas, Through the loss of such waters the lands oneo cultivated by these tribes Love become barren er.d worthless, ocd th mem bers of sueh tribes have beoome a charsa on the Government, and forced by the loss of their fields into lives of deerra-kition and penury ; arid Wherea, Such tribes havo from the ear liest days been the friends and allies of the white race; and Whereas, The people of the United ?tates have pledged themselves by solemn treaty to protect such tribes in their property and property rights; and Whereas, 1 he Government of tha United States has and now is onjaired in the espendi tur of hundreds of thousands of dollars for the construction of works of irrigation for the reclamation of lands belonging to otiier Indian tribes; therefore, be it lteaolved. That this Consress do approve the proposed construction, under tlii plans of the U. S. Geological Survey, of the Bnttes reservoir, in Pinal county, Arizona, recenily reported, to aain reclaim tha lands of these tribes, believing that by so doing can the Government alone honorablj rob?c:n tlie broken pledges made by it to these peot le, and thu3- preserve from further want aad degradation two of tho s-irvivin Indian tribes of the American continent that havo always been tlie constant friends of the white race. Resolved, That we approve the proposed construction of such reservoir not only as just ar.d philanthropic, but as economical aud g-ood policy, as in a comparatively short time the expense of maintaining such In dians as Governmsr.t charges will far exceed the cost of the irrigation works required to make them a self-supporting and seif-re specting community. 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 Congress 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 ocenpies the indefensible position df doing noth ing itself or allowing any one else to improve this great natural reservoir site. 2. We firmly helieve 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 wrjng in this regard. 3. The Tiuia and Maricopa Indian reservation contains 350,000 acres of as fertile laud as lies within the bound aries of Arizona, and is aaiuirably adapted for homes for these people, as well as the waodoring Papagoes, who , are now compelled to prey upon the herds of our farmers and ranchmen for subsistence. 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.

QUEER RACING. SUuMachnsetts Offers a notise-Balld-Inn; Contest ns a Xoveltjr. The latest novelty In races is a house building race. The only one so far run seems to have come out a dead heat. Recently a real estafte company auc tioned off a number of lots ia Western avenue, Westfteld, Mass and with the idea of booming the neighborhood of fered prizes. Five hundred dollars to the first, $300 to the second, was offered the builders of new houses. One of the ct purchasers, a contractor named Riven?, began at once to build. The work was r.ot hurried at first, as there was apparently no competitor. One ap peared, however, four days after work had commenced. . . A Mrs. Lee 'was the owner, and night and dajr men worked on her building. Rivers responded with double gangs of men, and for several days the race went . an without a pause until both houses were finished almost exactly together. The Rivers house, which was built in nine days, has nine rooms averaging 14 feet square, is trimmed with hard tvood, is wired for electric bells, has a furnace and running water, and is . completely painted outside as well as pottered and decorated inside. The Lee iouse is not so complete, lacking a fur nace and gas fixtures, but it was com pleted in five day3, thus breaking all records so far as known. Both sides claim the $500 prize. About 20 men, were employed on each building and . crcrv device known to un-to-date car pentry was employed. Both housesare attractive in appeerance and show no sign of haste in construction. During the race K he houses were visited by bun-' drcds of people, who cheered on the workmen in the novel contest. N. Y. World.
