THE FLORENCE TRIBUNE
By CHAS. D. RE PPT. ONLY PAPER IN PINAL COUNTY. FLORENCE, ARIZONA. JUNK 11, 1808. TERMS: OneTenr 13.00 .Six mouths 1.50 TJntered at the Florence postoffice as sec bnd class matter. C. P. Lkitcu annonaces that he has bought John O. Dunbar's interest in the Gazette, and will hereafter go it a one. i Is these piping times of war, just aB the fall elections are coming on, it is remarkable how many men are needed at home. It keeps Arizona busy this year rais ing hay and grain for California con sumption. And she has raised her quota of soldiers, too. Wb devote considerable space in this issue to Mark Smith's speech on home rule, which ia well worth a careful perusal. Mark's arguments are unanswerable. Cou Thesusb, an Austrian artillery officer, was killed while commanding a Spanish battsry at the siege of Santi ago last Monday. And yet they say the Austrians are neutral. The war news Is something like a Chinese puzzle it is hard to decipher. 'The publie most wait patiently for a :Xew days, ud th American eagle will -be heard to scream over free Cuba and iiree Porto Eico. To their everlasting shame be it Said the conferees on the war revenue measure have agreed to strike out the Woleott aeignorage silver bullion amendment, and in lieu of this issue 4300,000,000 in bonds. How Mark Smith it Regarded in Wash ington. (From the Washington Post.) One of the best liked, most amiable and magnetic men of the house is Dele gate Marcus A Smith, of Arizona, who is now getting to be a veteran on the Democratic side. Only one other dele gate, Mr. Joseph, of New Mexico, who went out in the fifty-third congress, ever served as long as has the gentle man from the romantic town of Tomb stone. Mr. Smith is not a frequent speaker, bat when he does talk he shows himself a master of vigorous, clear-cut English. Being popular with both sides, he scarcely ever fails with any measure he sets his heart upon His long service has enabled him to secure assignments on four of the best committees, where he has a chance of being extremely useful to the people he represents. His long stay in Wash ington is an additional evidence of the value of keeping a good man term after term. Arizona has every reason to congratulate herself on adopting this policy. Yes, Arizona's promptitude in fur nibbing her quota of soldiers should be remembered to her credit when the question of her Statehood comes up again. Her population is now nearly double that of Nevada, and while Nevada's figure dropped trom 62,200 to 45,761 in the decade of 1880-90, Arizona has been steadily and rapidly advanc ing in population. By all means rive Arizona a place among the stars, that glorious constellation that adorns the field of the American flag. Los An geles Express. Sheriff Williamson discovered on Wednesday morning that the prisoners had made an attempt the night pre vious to break jail. Scott and Rich ardson had succeeded in filing their shackles off, and two holes had been started in the floor, one of which was two or three feet deep, and another in the ceiling under the district attorney's office. The tools found, with which they had been working were a small saw and file, and a poker. New shack lea were put on the more obstreperous prisoners and a closer watch is main tained. The Gila county jail is one of the safest in the territory and prisoners have a very slim chance of escape. (Globe Silver Belt. Indications are that the rainy season Is at hand, though should it come now great damage would be done to the "hay and grain crop. Great banks of -white clouds eome up each afternoon, 'which are a eertain precursor of rain, How. P. . Beady ia writing his reminisi ices of early days in Arizona for the Tucson Citizen. He first came to the territory in 1854, and most of his life since that time has been spent here. The series of articles will be a valuable contribution to the history of J.be territory. Henry Wattebsoh said at the As- ociated Press banquet in Chicago the other day: "I have seen wonderful things in my life, but I did not hope to see the day when"Fitz" Lee and "Joe" Wheeler would be major-generals of the United States. When recently I aaw the boys in bine, and mine among them, marching through the streets of Louisville, my heart was in my mouth, but when I saw at the head of the column a man whom thirty-five years " ago t h .wu off the field of WUa, then my heart burst and the tears flowed from my eyes. What ever else beside, this war will settle the solidar ity of this nation." In the course of a discussion of the administration's effort to secure inter national bimetallism, Mr. Chandler criticised Secretary Gage sharply for the position he had assumed in attempt ing irrevocably to commit the adminis tration to the gold standard and criti- cised bis hostility to silver and inter national bimetallism. Speaking of the aetion of the Teller resolution, which reaffirmed the Stanley Matthews silver resolutions, he said that Secretary Gage had many supporters in the re publican party. He said that at the head of those who voted for the Mat thews resolution in the house was William McKinley, now president, and in the senate Willian B. Allison, of Iowa. He thought it remarkable what was true and honest twenty years ago, vas trne but dishonest now. Mr. (Chandler said the Republican party ,did not Destitute to reorganize the .supreme court in order to assert the .right of the United States to l&sue irredeemable paper money. He re viewed the various decisions of the supreme court on this subject and said Jhat natioual honor was not in danger by cqinage of silver if it was not en dangered by the issue of paper. j TELEGRAPHIC REPORT. New York, June 8. A specinl to the Journal from Hongkong, says the victory of Aguinaldo, the Philippine insurgent leader, is victory for Consul Wildman. , Wildman has believed in him, and from the first has advocated giving him a. fair trial. Dowey has consented more out of regard for Wild- man than because he believed in Aguin aldo. Now Dewcv writes VViMm.n . "Aguinaldo is behavinc snlendidlv He is a born soldier." Aguinaldo himself writes Wildman. t k , ... rc you pieasett with me? Have I kept my word?

The business man who lives like prairie dog in its hole and never ex pends a dime for any public enterprise may, in isolated cases, succeed in mak ing money, but he is not of as much use in nature's plan as the birds and insects, which distribute the seeds of plants over the earth and and thereby spread the growth of vegetation. H is a desert breeder, and his departure from earth never creates as much of a ripple as a grain of sand into the Pacific during a cyclone. Prescott Courier, Here is the way an exchange goes after news: If yonr wife whips you let us know, and we will set yon right before the world. If you have eom pany tell ns if you are not ashamed of your visitors. If a youngster arrives at your home call on us and we will furnish a name for him or her, as the case may warrant. If you have party or social gathering of any kind, bring around a cake, seven or eight pies, and a side of ham, not necessari ly for us to eat, but just to show you friendship. You needn't mind invit ing us as it may be too cool for our wardrobe. We want the news." A Mysterious Tidal Were. A tidal phenomenon occurred in the river on one day lately for which the wise watermen- can give no explanation. The young flood rushed up the river like a tidal wave or bore, nvrth no easterly storm outside to account for its tre-nj-enooua eneiwy. A fisherman who 3iau!edi hia uets before the ebb was spent was astonished1, 15 minutes later, to see his stakes swaying- violently from side to sife under the Influence of the flood. The fidh came in great masBes, borne along -helplessly by the rushing- tide, and filled the nets and burst t-hem or carried thanr away. Experienced men, who divined a big catch of emelta as a result of the strong tidal current, haukjd their nets up in a few minutes after setting tthem, but few were so canny as this. Nets were split, torn, and snd in some cases carried away by the weight of fish, and some of the stakes were lifted out- of the mud, db-agged under the ice and carried' off, nets ami all. The tremendous tidal energy- did not last long enough to make it an ex ceptionally high tide, which adds to the mystery of She phenomenon. Borne few fishermen made -enormous oatohes, but a great many suffered severe losses. Chatham (N. B.) World. are some dozen mountain streams. forming a series of beautiful cascades and cataracts.

N, Y. Sun. Madrid, June 8.- It is officially asserted that the Soaninh tteina Mercedes was sunk by the fire of the American fleet at Santiago on Monday. Five sailors and twenty-nine marines on board of her worn kmd A semi-official note was published here to-day purporting to give an account of the bombardment of Santiago de uuoa Dy tne American fleet on Monday last. The American navy under Ad miral Sampson fiercely attacked Santi ago ae Cuba and a bloody encounter ensued. The Americans attacks on the Spanish marines and land batteries which replied, as a conse quence the Americans were repulsed with heavy losses, estimated at 1500 men. The American projectiles, .how ever, sunk the Spanish crniser Beina Mercedes. New York, June 8. A special from Cape Haytien to the Journal says the American troops are to-day fifrhtinsr battle with the Spaniards under Linares on the slopes of the hills to the west and northward of Santiago Bay. The object of the invaders is to gain the heights of the Ma;stra hills, particular ly the San Pablo, which commands Santiago City. They have already gained many points of vantage, and the American artillery is shelling the enemy. Santiago may surrender before the American military forces reach there, The resistance of the Spanish troops on the outposts to the advance of the Cu bans and Americans has been half hearted. The invaders could have ap proached closer to the city, but they feared a trap. They are now camped on the hills on both sides of the har bor, and are fortifying their positions. The Spaniards are expected to re main near the city, and make their r sistance there. They were bewildered by the Americans landing soldiers at more than one point, and an attempt they made to drive them back to the transports failed, by reason of the presence of the American fleet. As no report has been sent out as to the American losses, it is probable this first victory was a bloodless one for the invaders. The captured lull-top is a point considered important, as it prac tically controls the bay of Aguadores. The Americans at once landed the ar tillery and dragged it up the slope. It was matter of wonder that the Spanish general, Linares, did not make a strong attempt to stop the Americans at this point. The truth probably is that the Americans' movement bewildered the Spaniards. They had expected the in vaders to land in force at Cabrera on the west side of the channel, and had posted their troops to fight there. Washington, June 8. The Stars and Stripes now float over the dismantled ruins of one of the Spanish forts at the entrance to Santiago Harbor. Sampson has taken possession of the fortica tion, and the Spanish flag has been hauled down. Sampson is now pre paring the fort for occupancy by American soldiers, and is remounting guus. v Off Santiago, June 4, via Port Antonia (Jamaica,) June 8. One of the naval experts of the flagship of the North Atlantio squadron, said to-day that the city of Santiago can be taken in one day after the arrival of the United States troops. This voices the opinion of nearly all naval officers here. The fleet has accomplished all it can thus far. New York, June 9. A copyrighted special from St. Thomas, Danish West Indies, to the Evening Journal says that the party suspected of having furnished the United States with in formation of the mining of San Juan harbor, is Walter Bett, secretary of the British consulate at that port. He has received bis passports and been banished from Porto Eico on an order of Governor-General Macias. Mr. Bett was imprisoned in a dungeon for fifty six hours and subjected to gross maltreatment. The British Consul General Crawford has made a formal protest to his government and serious international complications are imminent. It Made Him Particular. From the London Tit-Bits. "Save me! Save mc!" she cried as her head rose above the water, and she grasped a plank floating by. "I bey you pardon," he replied from the bank, ' but I want it distinctly un derstood that I'm a married man with 6even children." "Yes, yes; save me!" she shrieked. 'Then there'll be no falling into my arms, and calling me preserver, will there?" "Oh, no, no." "And j'ou won't insist on marrying me for my heroic conduct?" "No, no; only save me!" "All right, I'll tackle the job," he responded as he threw aside his coat. "You see," he explained just before diving in, "I was caught by one o' these dodges once before, and that's why I'm married, it makes me a bit particular now." A Jesuit priest end a Protestanit Episcopal bishop have been traveling along the Yukon in company, minister ing to the wants of the gold seekers; and the Jesuit, Bev. J. B. Bene, who is prefect apostolic for Alaska, says he owes his life to Bishop Howe's care when he was taken sick. "I am anxious for the world to know," he tells friends in Baltimore, "that the re-lious work ia. Alaska is harmonious, and that the members of the different denomina tions are always willing and anxious to render assistanceio their brethren. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications as they cannot reach tin diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness. and that is by constitutional remedies. Ueainess is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous limn? of the Eustachian Tube. When tliis tube is inflamed you have a runnintr sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the result, ana unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be des troyed lorever ; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is noth ing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
