From the Phosnix Republican. An important suit was field in the distret court Saturday when Major T. C. Jordan sued Maricopa county for $1,200 for two years' services as immi gration commissioner. No one doubts that Major Jordan has well earned the money he is suing for. This, however, does not noticeably affect the county of Maricopa, which has always taken refuge behind a ltgi'-l technicality to .avoid complying with the provisions of the immigration law. This law, which was ereatrd by the Eighteenth legislature, was strongly i urged by I'ovenior Hu:rhe-. When it went into eifcel lie s.p.jntil newt-' I paper men. wherever praitieubh', as ! crt:imbi:ers of u i 'i;' iu1 : -a. One fo"! em-ii county, ln;a!ti!i mat uiey ira b; best fitted to pcrf."-u the tiittU of that otiic. U i, iortueate! V i-- titej Counties ami th- ti-rrit -vy gi-iierally, I the law was not a popular one, as its f motive was purposely misconstrued. For the reason that the governor was known to be strongly in favor of the law, his enemies attributed its passage entirely to ulterior motives, and the appointment of newspaper men as commissioners to be a step in the direction of subsidizing the press of the territory in his behalf. A more foolish and picayune policy was never attempt ed in any country, although it was surprisingly successful at the time. The plea was set up that the law was not in compliance with the Iiarrisoa act, and the boards of supervisors in a majority of the counties declined to pay the commissioners' salaries and co-opcratcd to oppose the law and cause it to become a dead letter. The commissioners in the meantime have continued to perform their duties to the best of their ability, hampered as they are, without compensation or ex pense money, excepting in a few cases. These men have already done excellent service for their respective counties and have materially aided in advertis ing the territory far and wide by their contributions to the governors' reports of 1808 and lB'J. It is but just that they should be paid for what they have done. In tirr Jordan's casi, his work for t'tia eai.-u';, has result inach jjood is well wottli- arii.ULt uskt d fur if , Sow t!-at pit !:;' -,::d j'iv;-;.!iee i no lotigcr b!UJ n:'.-l of tht-oe v. ho f-irsaeri. : rsonal e julg- OJ-p .ed ti-j I.i. .v , it U ): ;-.-d tr.:tt -:---' c-wt.-will prevail and that provisions of this act will be upheld. No law was ever passed by an Arizona legislature that will result in such ultimate good to the whole territory as the one in ques tion. The one thing that Arizona needs above all others at this time is to be properly advertised, so that capital may be induced to invest in our incom parable resources and people may seek home upon the fertile acres that now lie idle in this land of perpetual sun shine. One good way to do this adver tising is to enforce the immigration commission law. Members of the bar generally are of opinion that the law is a good one; at any rate, the supreme court has never decided otherwise, and the fact that it is not in force and that the commis sioners have thus far been permitted to go unpaid is not to the credit of Ari zona. The Crawford Trial. From the Globe Silver Belt. The case against B. F. Crawford, charged with the murder of Dominick Banche, on the 23rd of July last, came on for trial last Saturday morning. Tlie reguiitr j;:ry pacel was soon ex hausted in tee cii.irt ti secure a jury, and it was found necessary to issue a special venire fur 30 jurymen return able Monday morning. A jury nus secured on Moiiutiv and the trial beirau tiie same evening v. ith tlie taking of testimony for the prosecution. The evidence was all in by Tuesday after noon, when the arguments began, and continued until 10:30 p. m. The prosecution was represented by E. J. Edwards, district attorney, Wiley Jones and C. T. Clark. The attorneys for the defense were J. F. Wilson, of Phoenix, Geo. J. Stoneman and P. M. Thurmond. The case was ably con ducted on both sides, every point being contested. Mr. Wilson, who made the closing argument for the defense, spoke for an hour and three-quarters and his eloquent appeal elicited applause from a part cf the audience, which demon tration provoked a reprimand from the court. ' Mr. Edwards' concluding argument was both logical aud force ful. ' We can not remember a case tried in the district court of this county on the merits of which public opinion was so evenly divided, and the prevailing im pression was that the jury would fail to agree upon a verdict, notwithstand ing the fact that the evidence was di rect and the killing admitted by the de fend. The jury remained out over 20 hours and it seemed as though the expecta tion of a disagreement would be veri fied, but at 7 o'clock last evening the jury came into court with a verdict of manslaughter, and recommended the prisoner to the mercy of the court. The penalty for manslaughter is from one to ten years' imprisonment. Sen tence has not yet been passed. We understand that the jury on the first ballot stood nine for manslaughter and three for acquittal, subsequently changed to eight for conviction and four fur acquittal, ami continued wit.b- -ft farther change until the last vote was taken, it: much sytnpt.thy a depl.j is expr -bie case a 11 a so! for t':! r..-iiji u u.e ufcitsuuwi.. c.. ,-k a.i:i H 3 p -!-!-i!. r t(.-fc. th rmSa!. who held important clerkship in the last Lej;is- j lature, is taking a trip east for his health in company with two carloads of calves. lie writes as follows from Flufestaff: I5ut to return to the cattleyards. "We," editorially speaking, inspected our cattle immediately upon arrival and found them free from yellow fever, ticks and other contagious things. Then we felt safe in undertaking their transportation. They are principally yearlings and calllets, and "we," all alone as we are with the two carloads, feci no hazard in becoming their "chappierone." We feel that they will behave becomingly and not stampede when we want to sleep.

It is evident that the anti-Hanua Re publicans in Ohio can defeat the big boodle boss for election to the Senate if they have the nerve to undertake it. The Republican majority in the Leg islature is very small at best. There are enough members who stand with Foraker, Bushnell and Kurtz to render Han na's election impossible. All they have to do is simply to refuse to be bonnd by a caucus and to stand to gether for another candidate. Why should they help elect Ilacna? What has he ever done for them? Has lie not deserted, knifed or overridden them, according' to his interest or his mood? Is he fit for Senator.? Will one of these men venture to say that Iianna, the rough-riding, slave-driving ironmonger, who was never heard of iu national politics until last year, is a worthy successor in the Senate of John Sherman, Salmon P. Chase and Ben Wade? What has he done for the party in I Ohio? Undtr his personal canvass for election to the Senate the Republican minority of 87 in the LtirisstaUire has almost disappeared. The plurality of 92,000 m the last election fur Governor, u 1S15, has melted away to less than one-third that figure, while the legis lative plurality on the popular vote is only 3,000. He weakens his party at home and discredits it in the nation. Is it not time to unload Hanna? J. C. Goodwin, erstwhile legislator, left Tempe a few days ago, to cicerone a party of ladies going to Globe. The party departed by private conveyance, the motive power being a mule, impell ed forward by blacksnake held in the hands of Mr. Goodwin. The party had got beyond Florence and Jim was en tertaining the ladies with a humorous story, when the mule suddenly flopped his ears and dropped dead. Jim swears the mule never heard the story be fore. f Gazette. There are eighty-four new buildings in course of construction in Phoenix and additions, many of them being magnificent buildings.

From the Phcsnix Herald. Saturday evening last Mr. Wallace Duncan, a grand son of General Lew Wallace and who is most highly con nected in the east, passed a check for fifty dollars on Mr. Scott, and shortly after he passed another on Dr. Butts for twenty dollars, receiving the money in exchange for checks for the amount, bearing the signature of Dr. Purman. The young man then went to his room on East Monroe street and exchanged his clothes for some old clothes in the room and going into another room oc cupied by another gentleman he took a revolver from the bureau and left the house. Shortly afler he sppenred at the Fuqua livery stable and hiring a saddle horse left the city. It soon devoloped that the checks were forgeries. Mr. Scott was paid the money iu order to keep the young man from arrest, hut after the officers had spent the night hunting for the missing man Mr. Fuqua swore to a warrant charging him with stealing the horse and the officers redoubled their efforts to find him.. Last night he returned and rode the norse to tae livery t-.ial.it, :ea-. ::fc Ui'.-re ; without giving any exi-imialioti i;'ni l.;s long absence, inc. oiticcrs theo found him and placed him under ar rest. It is understood from his friends that he has been in an itueane asylum iu the ct and is not at ail times account able for his actions and they refuse to prosecute him. The officers have placed the matter before the grand jury and should they fail to indict h'm a charge of insanity may be lodge:! against him. Home Rule in Arizona. From the Denver Republican. An effort will be made during the approaching session of Congress to induce that body to enact what may be called a home rule law for Arizona. Under the proposed law the people of that territory, without having any other representation in Congress than they now possess, would be permitted to elect their governor and other terri torial officers. A bill for a law of this kind was in troduced m behalf of Utah just before that slate was admitted, and it proba bly would have been passed if the ena bling act had not taken its place. The people of Arizona feel that while state- hood may be far in the future for them, they should be permitted to govern 1 themselves in the way proposed at that time for Utah, and which would give them many of the advantages of state- t - . .... ; mnx IRO AAAOO- The contest ends December 31st.

There seems to be no ground what' ever to object to such a law except on. the part of politicians who may think they would have a better chance of ap pointment by the president than of election by the people. Eastern peo ple surely can not object. It does away with their chief ground of oppo sition to the admission of new states in the B'ar West, which is that admis sion world increase the strength of the West, and particularly of the free coinage element, in Congress. There -would be no senators and no represent atives. The territory would have no vote in Congress. It could not inter fere in matters of national legislation any more than it can now, and at preST ent its delegate has no vote. It would be nothiDg more than sim--ple justice to give the people of Ari- -zona a right to elect their own officers. There is no reason why so intelligent a community should be ruled by men appointed by a power situated 2,000 miles away from their own seat of. government. Congress should fall in with the idea of giving the people this much home rule, and eastern opponents of statehood for Arizona should accept it as a means of hushing in a measure the demand for a Mate jroveruuient.

Iii the days of its prosperity Bath, Ho., had almost five miles of busy ship yards. The town had never done any thing else for a living than to build and sail ships, but it prospered in that. Thirty or more years ago its harbor was always iil'.ed with shipping, and itn streets vrere busy with trade. B it there has bscn a steady decline since the end cf the tvar, and a vivid e::empiifiea tion of the decay in American shipping. At present not one wooden vessel is being; built in the town, and there is not a vessel intended for the merchant marine on the way. Old ship owners are sellip-g their vessel property as fast as they are able to do so, and putting1, their money into ether things that pay better interest, and unless some change is quickly made in the economic con ditions of the country affecting ship ping, it is evident that Bath and a great: many othrr towns of the same character ' will be compelled to go out of the busi ness of building ships.
