Gey Constables ila county U to be congratulated DT6T the certainty of being again rep resented in the Territorial Council by that sterling, nnpnrchasable democrat, Hon. George W. P. Hunt. In renominating county officers, the Pinal county convention paid them a high compliment for the economical and successful administration of county affairs daring the past two years. Ir the memory were not so sad, it would be laughable to see the effort of Arizona Republicans to make political capital out of the heroic death of :Bockey O'Neill, who despised the foundation principles of that party. Col. Ebodie's ambition is to get back into the regular army, and he proposes to use his position as delegate to Con gress, if elected, to further that nur pose. It is doubtful if the people of Arizona will be willing to abandon their own interests in order to gratify the gallant Colonel's ambition. The Arizona Republicans have begun their usual campaign tricks of "fool ing the people," but the result will be just the same. The Arizona voter is rthe best informed man on earth, and he knows tiat the name Eepubliean is a y nony for the single gold standard , which is repugnant to nine-tenths of our people. Thb friends of Mark Smith in the Territorial Convention conclusively proved that he is the idol of the Demo cratic party before they allowed his name to be withdrawn. He could have had the nomination on the first ballot had he not seen fit to decline. General Wilson admitted this in his speech accepting the nomination. The poor old Republican party in Arizona has agaia prostituted itself by nominating an outspoken Bucky O'Neill silver man for delegate to Con gress, and has shown itself utterly devoid of anything that approaches principle. To make matters worse hey have stolen the main plank of the Populist platform the initiative and referendum when everybody knows they don't believe a word of it. It is enough to make such stalwarts as Henry J, Cleveland turn over in their graves. The average Arizona voter is too sensible a man to be carried away by enthusiasm for that gallant Rough Eider, Col. A. O. Brodie, deserving as he may be. His competitor for dele gate to Congress, Hon. J. F. Wilson, is a man of unquestioned integrity and ability, and is far better equipped in all the attributes that go to make a ood delegate. The matter of most vital interest to Pinal county is the building of the Buttes reservoir, and Pr. Wilson has promised to give it his undivided time and attention, if elected. Kopwinw hira to be a man of his word, it is undoubtedly to the interest of our people to roll up a rousing majority f jT Mr. VVjlson. "Honor to Whom Honor is Due." From the Tucson Citiaon. Few know the amount of gratutous advertising the publishers of u county paper contributes to the town or city in which lie resides. If you, Mr. Brown, were paid one-half the usual rates for free notices and ads annually inserted, would it not add a haudsome credit to your bank account? Like most of your fraternity you are too modest to "blow vour trumpet." and yet you might not object to some one else giving a little blast. Here is eur friend Reppy of the Tribune, who has two columns on theCasa Grande valley and the house memorial by the year, for which he makes no charge, and he inserts notices for church and school, temperance and Red Cross societies, for which he expects no remuneration. Such generous acts deserve apprecia tion and commendation. By the way, have you learned that the f 20,000 clause passed congress in the Indian appro priation bill? Mr. F. H. Newell, chief bydrographer in the department of the interior, Washington, D. C, employed A. T. Col" ton to gauge the water at the Buttes, after the death of William Brash, and has recently secured his services in supervising the construction of a road from the Buttes to the county road from Florence to Riverside, so thai machinery may be hauled to begin an extensive survey of the bed rock and amount of water that can be stored, cost of construction of the dam, etc The road is completed and Mr. Newell expects to have a diamond drill and all necessary accessories for thorough work on the ground in a few weeks. As Mr. Colton was employed by Mr. Arthur P. Davis in his surveys three years ago, his services will probably be in demand in the work contemplated. He was at the irrigation congress and bad several interviews with Mr. Nesvell and expects bim here to begin preliminary work in November. This means business, and although congress (or the government) is not committed hereby to construct the dam, there, can belittle or no doubt that when the feasibility, cost of construction and necessity of the project is made clear, congress, after having gone so far and expended so much, subsequent appro priations will follow and the dam will be an assured fact, and in the end will cost the United States nothing and the long sought desideratum of the Gila valley be met. I. T. Whittemore. High Grade Silver Mine. E. J. Bonrall, superintendent of the Vekol mine, situated about forty miles south of Casa Grande, was in Jerome several days this week looking over the mining prospects in this locality. He says the mill at Vekol started up Mon day after a shut down of eight years, caused by the property being in litiga tion after the death of the former owner, J. D. Walker. The Vekol is a very rich mine and is very pockety. One day it will seem played out and perhaps the next there will be thou sands in sight. The writer was there ten years ago when it was being worked. Judge Walker received the mine from the Indians and always employed a great many of them as windless hands, ore sorters, etc. Mr. Walker was always a friend to the In dians, dug a well 160 feet deep for them on their reservation, curbed same and put in a wheel, rope and two buck ets in exchange for the mine which they agreed to show lina upon com pletion of his contract. Jerome Min ing News, Arizona Leads. George H. Kelly, editor of the Ari zona Bulletin, published at Solomon ville, who recently returned from a trip to California, says: "After a sojourn of thirty days in Southern California we a re convinced that the more an Arizonaa sees of some other country the more he thinks of Arizona. Arizona is the most pros perous political subdivision of the United States to-day. Hon. M. A. Smith left on last even mg's train for Los Angeles where his wife is very sick. He stated that he would certainly return before the elec tion and make one speech for Hon. J. F. Wilson. He will opsn an office at Tucson and resume the law practice. He said he did not feel sore over the election, but knew Colonel Wilson wonld be elected and would fill the po sition with credit to himself and the territory of Arizona. Phoenix Enter prise. Hewie Hewitt is back from a visit to relatives in Ohio and in Mercer coun ty, Pennsylvania. He never tires of talking about the good time be had and of the many kindnesses and at tentions he received on every hand. We doubt if he would have been able to tear himself away from the pleas ant scenes of his boyhood had it not been that the eastern climate does not agree with him and he was compelled to return to his health-giving Arizona home.

I hereby announce myself as a candidate for Sheriff of Pinal County, subject to the decision of the Republican Convention, Clay C. Hockett. Fire in Tucson. At 10:30 Sunday morning fire broke out in the oflice of Dr. Odermatt in the second story of the Eadulovich block at the corner of Congress street and Stone avenue. It rapidly spread and with Tucson's inadequate water sys. tern could not be checked. The boys from the railroad shops worked hard and the S. P. water supply did the only effective work, but still the fire burnt until it had exhausted itself. The building was one of the best business blocks in Tucson. Its value is estimated at near a hundred thou sand dollars. It carried an insurance of only eleven thousand. A large part of the dry goods stock of W. P. Hittand the crockery stock of L. G. Radulovich were carried out and saved. Wells, Fargo & Co.'s express office was completely destroyed. In the building was the Odd Fellows' hall which was destroyed with much of the paraphernalia of the order. The West ern Union telegraph office was burned, shutting off Tucson's telegraphic con nection with the outside world. The central telephone office was also located ia this building and Tucson's inhabi tants will desist from the use of the telephone for some time to come. The building also contained the oflice of Dr. Jones, Col. Uerrlng and many other business men. This is the heaviest loss Tucson has had for many years and demonstrates clearly the imperative need of a more effective water system. Miss Clara Barton is sixty-eight years old, but writes from Santiago as follows: "It is over a month that I have been lying on the ground out of doors, having passed through a siege of yellow fever. Meanwhile, I am splen didly well." Miss Bartou has devoted nearly her entire life for the benefit of others. She resigned a government clerkship early in the civil war to be come an army nurse, and in 1864 was placed in charge of the hospitals of th Army of the James. In the Franco German war she assisted in organizing the military hospitals. She labored among the poor at Strasburg in 1871 and of Paris In 1872. The American Red Cross Society was organized by Her in 1391, and she became its presi dent. The year 1883 found her super intendent of a reformatory prison for women in Massachusetts. Her labors in 1884 were devoted to the Mississippi flood sufferers, and in 1893 to relieving the victims of the cyclones on the South Atlantic coast. War's Victims. The official records of the War de partment, as completed, show that there were 33 officers and 231 enlisted men of the army, 2C4 in all, killed in battle during the war with Spain. These casualties include all the lives lost by the army in the baatles in the Philippines, as well those in Cuba and Porto Rico. The percentage of the officers killed is strikingly large and is said to be un precedented in the battles of the world. The contrast is especially striking in in the case of the battle of Oindnram, where, although the loss of life was heavy, the list of killed included only one officer of the British army.

IsTotice TO TAXPAYEES THB DUPLICATE ASSESSMENT BOLL OF Pinal County, Arizona, for the year 1898 has this day been placed in my possession, and I am commanded to collect from each person named therein the several sums mentioned and carried out in the last column opposite their respective names. , Said taxes will become delinquent on the third Monday (the 19th day) of December next, and unless paid on that day or prior thereto five per cent penalty and costs of advertising, which is fifty cents for each de scription, will be added to the amount thereof. The taxes are payable at the office of the County Tax Collector, in the court house at Florence, Arizona, during office hours, from 9 a. m. to 12 nt and from 1 to p. m., Sundays and legal holidays excepted. September liith, 1898. P. E. Bbady, Jb. - Tax Collector Piual County, Arizona, Territorial Domooratic Platform. The democratic party of Arizona re affirms its allegiance to the principles set forth in the national democratic platform adopted at Chicago at the national convention in June, 1890. It demands that the mints of the United States be opened to the coinage of both gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, without asking or awaiting the consent of any other nation. To enforce the gold standard through out the world is impossible. The pres ent condition is intolerable. The Dem ocratic party believes that the issue thus presented is the most important in American politics. The mission of the United States is to teach the world the sublime lesson of human liberty and self-government, and the further lesson that its people have the courage and ability to dis- charge every responsibility which the fortunes of war may have thrust upon their country. Wherever the flag waves, it shall be the symbol of freedom, and to all under its folds it will ever guar antee the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We send a greeting to our army and navy for their heroic valor displayed on land and sea. The democratic party of Arizona hereby approves the recent war with Spain and justly shares in the glory of its results. We favor the independence of Cuba and the retention by this gov ernment of the Spanish West Indian possessions and the control by this government of other Spanish territory now occupied by American forces. It is the duty of the government to make homes for its citizens. Arizona has a large amount of arable lands. sufficient in extent for millions of pop ulation, which can be reduced to culti vation through the agency of the government, by building storage reser voirs and preserving the storm flood waters for irrigation purposes. Therefore, inasmuch as we secure none of the benefits from the river and harbor appropriations, we think it only just that a liberal appropriation should be made by the general govern ment for this purpose. The setting aside of one-quarter of the territorial area of Arizona as a timber reserve works a great hardship upon the territory at large, without equivalent benefits. The forests can be preserved under proper legislation without excluding them absolutely from mining, grazing and agricultural pursuits. We arraign the republican adminis tration because, regardless of the rights of the people, tUey have increased our territorial debt over $300,000 by the funding of illegal and spurious claims against the territory, and- the enforcement of the prison contract before its final adjudication by the courts, which have largely increased the debt of the territory. We favor the repeal of the laws cre ating the boards of equalization, loan commission, board of control, and im migration commissioners, and also the law granting the governor the power to remove officials at pleasure, and the passage of such laws as will lodge the powers exercised by these boards in commissions elected by the people. We arraign the republican office holders of Arizona for the defeat of the home rule bill, which, pending statehood, is necessary to our advance ment as a territory, because it gives the people, the taxpayers and citizens, the right to choose their own executive and administrative officers. The democracy of Arizona are now, and always have been, earnestly in fa vor of statehood, and we hope it will not be long before the Congress of the United States strikes from the wrists of Arizona the manacles of territorial servitude. We pledge the democratic party, its representative in Congress and its members of the Legislature to the car rying out of these measures of reme dial reform, and ask all good citizens to unite with us in securing a victory for the free coinage of silver, statehood, and legislation that will bring the government of Arizona closer to the people at large.
