Stratton from the position of chairman of the Terri torial Live Stock Sanitary commission has created much interest 'among; live stock men. At the samq time some misinformation on the subject is more or less prevalent, as the following from the Tucson Star will demon- 'His repurte-J lwria boots that B.

No successor has been named by Of course thin is a big surprise to his many friends here, and further inform ation is looked for with considerable curiosity." The press dispatch quoted is incor rect in making the statement that Mr. Stratton resigned, or that his alleged resignation was dne to his "unsuccess ful prosecution of Charles W. Pugh." The fact is that Mr. Stratton was re moved as chairman on account of dif fering radically in policy with the board, and Mr. Barnes occupies that position at the present time. The prosecution of Mr. Pngh, it is positive ly asserted, was not conducted at the instance of the sanitary board. Its members were summoned to appear before the grand jury, to their sur prise, and furnished what information they were able on the spar of the mo ment. Mr. Stratum's resignation as mem ber of the board is daily expected in Phoenix. It has been asked for, and will doubtless come in dne season.

Adams rautney aifmw .The Passing of Gorman. From the Preaoott Journal-Miner. Mr. Editor: The now, self-evident defeat of Arthnr P. Gorman of Mary land for re-election to the United States senate is simply a vindication, and a just, though inadequate punishment for political insincerity and hypocrisy. Arthur P. Gorman has always been a political pirate. Posing as a Democrat, and as such receiving the highest hon ors of his state, he has alwas been, and is now, a plutocrat and an enemy bf the cardinal principles of Democracy. Indeed, there are no principles ad vocated by the trust syndicates, tariff barons, or goldbugs, that he is not clearly in favor of. And if it had not been for his political treachery and hypocrisy, Maryland would now be, as she has always been, a safe Demo cratic state. David B. Jlill of New York and Ar thur P. Gorman of Maryland ought to be put in a bag and shook to see which would come out first. Certain it is, that if Bill should eome out first, Gor man would be close to the mouth of the hag. No true Democrat can ever forget the traitorous and infmnn rnrt play ed by Gorman, II ill aud Voorhees dur ing the ssssiou of the ("4111 congress ia aiding the repeal of hat was known as the Sherman Silver Bullion Bill: and then defeating any legislation in Htu thereof. This ns done at the he- kfst of Mr. Cleveland. Up k this time the Hon. David Vf . Voorhees had, for many years, been a brilliant star of Democracy. To Dem ocracts there was magic in the sobri quet, "the tall Sycamore of the Wabash." Brilliant in intellect, wise in statesmanship, brave and eloquent in speech, he was a Democratic idol, at whose shrine there were many wor shipers. But now the admirers and worshipers at this shrine became lewer, ana when the brilliant star went down behind the eternal hills, it did not leave in its traek its wonted blaze of glory. There were sighs, and not many tears. The'Hon. David B. Hill had, up- to this time, been the recognized antag onist .01 Mr. Cleveland. Pale and emotionless as a statue, but cunning and subtle as a politician, he had man aged to have a sort of following among those who were moved alone by political machinery. And now, when ne&aw tnau irresiaent Cleveland was betraying the high trust reposed in him by the Democracy, the one par amount question of silver coinage this redoubtable knight of political chivalry, with spurs and plume and when Tammany's great tiger howled aud roared, but quailed not in the fierce conflict no one that we know of saw the waving of the plume or the flashing of the sabre ol this belted knight. But to "The Passing of Gorman." It has always been such men as Gor man who have ruined political parties. The wolves in sheep's clothing act very well and look very nice, where they are getting the choice of the lamb. Gorman's fealty to Jefferson ian Democ racy has never bothered the reveries of his days nor the visions of his nights. A protectionist, a plutocrat and a gold bug there has been no gennine prin ciple of Democracy upon which he has not trampled -no tenet of the party that he has not disavowed. Yet, for harmony's sake, he and Hill and Brice have been trusted with party leader ship; but there has never been a day when both he and the other two were not ready to kick over the dash board when they got the lines under their tails. Hence, Gorman, as a member of the National Democratic commit tee and, at that lime, by Democratic partiality, perhaps, its leading one bitterly fought St. Louis as the place ;-r holdlco; the 2nUuLi,i Democratic convention f.--r lsyfJ. lie would have as bitterly fought any other southern city, for Gorman bLi ever teen a south ern man w ith northern prinoile8, and a northern man with southern honors. Upon the Gorman family . escutcheon in Maryland there will be many in signia of aristocratic pomp and heraldic splendor, but upon its bright sheen there will blaze no trophies of battles fought for the masses of the people, nor signs of deathless devotion to the principles of plain, old fashioned Demo racy. , Mark Anthony told the immortal sorceress of the Nile that he must die the "great triumvir still," and the dark Plutonian shores echoed with Mb fame ; and in the great so called triumvirate of Gorman, Hill and Voorhees, the form' er might exclaim, "let me die the great triumvir still." With a mantle of charity, moist with the tears of the common people and the dews of Democratic faith .and in' spiration, covering his poiiticcl sins and insincerity, let him die. And after death, the judgment. Arthur P. Gorman has not furnished the brightest pages of the Congression al Bccord. No statesmanlike utter ance orhis will bless the coming gen eration, nor will the spring of elo que nee and palsy overflow their banks on account of any figure he has ent in their waters. Jxs. II. Wbight, A FOUL ASSASSINATION. The Remains M. L. Hasbrouck Found in Our Sister Republic. Qito Blanco, Pima County, ArizoDa, January 2. Special to The Yuma Sun. Two Mexicans have arrived from the Altar District of Sonora, Mexico, with the information that they dis covered the remains of a man on the trail sixty miles south of the boundary line. The remains were so scattered that it was impossible to arrive at the matter definitely, but he had prolal-ly been dead about 6 month, and tiie presence iu the left side of the breast bone of a hole made by a bullet its sharp pick, indicated that he came to hi a death by foul means. . As near as could be ascertained tbr? dead man was inidde-aged, about six feet tall, had dark hair, and wore a suit of grayt woolen clothes, duck hunting coat, blue flannel shirt, No. 9 of the old country Norwegian pattern, and a pair of russet leggings. The color of his eyes could not be told, as animals had stripped the bones of flesh. In the dead man's clothes were found a receipt for dues from the Pendleton, Oregon, Lodge No. 32, 1. O. O. F., one from the Portland, Oregon, Lodge No. 46, A. F. & A. M., and a newspaper published in Pendleton, Oregon the East Oregonian. The name appearing on the receipt was M. L. Hasbrouck, indicating that that was the name of the murdered man. The.receipts and newspaper are now in possession of The Sun. The proofs of the man's identity, to gether with a pocket-knife found in his pocket, were, after the remains were gathered together and given burial, brought to Oro Bianco and given to the Sun correspondent.

Pi! - tMaWetS SOWflM 00( VGH VDNKe The Santa I'e railroad will spec I a tuillion dollars in the improvement of its track in New Mexico, Arizona and California during the coming year. New steei rails and iron and masonry bridges will be substituted for those at esent in use. An especial reason for Improving the roadbed in New Mexico, Arizona and California is the fact that on the present, track it is impossible for the Santa Fe through trains to make the desired time. West of Baton, New Mexice, the running time of the trains, with an allowance made for the mountainous country, does not com pare with the time made on the eastern portion of the system. Prosperous Mexico. Prom the Denver alining Industry aud Re view. Western journals have lately told their readers much about the growth of manufacturing, railroad building and general remarkable deveioptneot in Mexico, and the cause for the same, A pretty careful reading of the eastern journals snow tuat tuts nie tews js not pubished there. V.'e cannot help but think that it is suppressed becaue it is very favorable to the claims of the advocates of free silver. Such acUou is only in accord with the lying poUcy of most of the eastern gold organs. The truth about Mexico is that rail roads are rapidly building there; manu factories of every kind are building all over the Republic ; its agricultural re sources are being developed at a re markable rate ; capital by the tens of millions of dollars is seeking invest ment there, and no country on earth is more prosperous. The cause of this is found in their free silver coinage laws, which have there sent gold to a premi um of 100 per cent. This premium acts as a tremendous bounty on home manufactures, or is equal to a protec tive tariff of 100 per cent. Its practi cal operation is like this: A Mexican wishes to buy cotton or woolen cloth, or nails, or hardware, or other articles which must be imported, say from this country. These things, when- bought in this country, must be paid for in gold, and it takes two dollars in their money to buy one dollar in gold. This makes these articles very costly in Mexico, and offers good induce ments for the establishment of manu factories to make them there. This is the cause of the general prosperity in Mexico. Agricultural prosperity come from the same" cause. It costs little or no more in their money, to raise cotton, tobacco, coffee or any other agricul tural product thn it did before gold went to a premium of 100 per cent. It costs, say, 11 cents a pound in their money to raise coffee, which is practi cally what it cost tweuty years ago. The pound of coffee sells in this coun try for 11 cents in gold, which will ex change for 22 cents of their money, thus giving them great profits. One result of this is to make good agricul tural land sought for, and- the result is great advance in their price. Land which we could buy ten years ago for 66 cents an acre is. now selling at $10 on acre. Now that attention is focussed on the northwest of the Pacific, much in tercut, attaches "to the simultaneous publication in Harpeb's Weekly, Jan uary 8, of three papers dealing with different aspects of the question. William Elliot Griffis will contribute a paper on "The Ruling Dynasty of China," Caspar Whitney on "The In dustrial Movement" in Japan, that is to say, the adoption of Caucasian methods, and Arnold White, in his letter from London, will explain the feeling aroused in England over the 1 action of Germany, ' FARMER AND MEGAPHONE. A Pilot on Boat Stop Horse la e Cornfield Near By, I iwas on the upper Ohio this sum-' . mer when "the river was low and -was much amused over the use to which a pilot put a megaphone. lie bought the" thing to call ashore any message that might have been given the boat to' ccrry. Tt is was to save time, for tho66 little boa's in the local trafe are a great deal like the old-fashioned mail carriers anything to accommodate the people along1 the bank. We were in the jiilot house, and the' bolt was running up a chute near the' West Virginia sidfe of the river. In a' cornfield was on old farmer who was following5- a plow behind an old flea'' bitten gray ithat pnly needed a half in-' vitation- to stop at any time. The pilot put the megaphone to his mouth and shouted: "Whoa!' and the old jray whoaed. The farmer heard the sound, and he " thought, evidently, that a neighbor was' there or thereabout, for he looked around to see from whence the sound came. Then he tossed a clod at the old horse and started him np. "Whoa!" raid the pilot, and again the' old horse stopped. Then the old Rube;! vr ent to the river bank and looked, down in the willows, but not a soul v.n'd hr fe?. TT IttItm "p Bud dciwn and then at the steamboat, and scratched l.ii head hi surprise. Ho couldn't aiTorJ to waste aty tiTft in. lof.Via for tie gtictt, for he we-nt lak to the plow a.Qi started on with his J ';'- - " ' . Once more the joking pilot said , 'Vhoa!" ar.i' ikfraia the horse stopped dead euil. You could see from the boat that -the okl fellow was ell mixed up, for he looked up and down the river and then at the hillside behind him to see'' if he could find the man who was work-' ing him-and his old horse. He made up' his mind that he would take it out of the old fay, and to fix for the occa sion he went to the underbrush and cut a trtick that -was ten feet long. He started the horse with a vengeance.- When the pilot hollered "whoa!" again' the old man gave the gray a lick that" sounded clear to the boat. We could almost hear him say: "Thar, gol darn you, HI teach yon to' stop when you hear a spook hollerin? . at ye." But the pilot kept npthe good work ' and hollered "whoa, whoa, whoa!" and ' again and again- the old man hit the ' gTay. Finally it looked as if he had caught on, for he let the old horse stop while he watched the boat. Then, the "pilot thought he hod had enough fun and he called out: "Feed the old gray; feed him. He's eo hungry that he can't -work. ThatV all the matter with him." Then old Eube got his voice and wo" heard him say: "You go to thunder" with your old voice! It'd atop a rail road train anywheres." Cincinnati Commercial. One of the regulations at the nev. Congressional library in Washington is that visitors must carry no parcels into the building. So says the Post, of that city, and then goes on to relate an amus ing occurrence: A rather tall, broad shouldered young woman arrived at th door cf the library, having in her hand a neat brow n paper package. "No bun dles are aiowed inside the building," said the attendant. "You must leave it here till you come out." The young woman objected. The man said it was the rule. The young woman said it was absurd. The man was firm. He must obey orders. The young woman, hesi tated; then she undid the parcel, hang several pairs of black hose over her arm, handed the moo the paper, and said: "There, you may keep that nartil I eome out." - An extraordinary lr.s.tne? of heredi tary te-nd.'u.v to suiciile wtis told by Prof. Bronardel in Paris lately.
