Gay It is generally conceded that Wilson will carry this county by one hundred and fifty majority, as the very lowest estimate. " Bob Morrison's description of Brodie leading the charge np San Juan hill on the 1st of July was very thrilling, but it lacked the element of truth, for .Brodie wasn't there. "Thk Enterprise advises Mexicans "who are offered money by Democrats to accept it and then vote the other way. What honorable advice, and what a noble estimate of our Mexican fellow-citizen! But it is in perfect accord with the policy of that paper. Hon. Marcus A. Smith spoke Friday night of last week at Mammoth, to the largest audience ever assembled in that camp. With all his old-time vigor and eloquence and personal magnetism, most effective work was -accomplished in this camp for General "Wilson and the rest of the ticket. Freeman A. Chamberlin, Demo- -cratic candidate for Recorder, is one of ' the most popular young men in the county. Be has conducted this office in the past two years in such a manner as to add to his popularity and insure his re-election by a still larger majority than that received by him two years ago. George E. Truman, who led the famous charge of the Bough Eiders up San Juan hill on the 1st of July, is ex pected home to-morrow or next day. Florence cannot do too much to show its appreciation of the gallant hero who gave np a good position to fight for his country as a private soldier, And it is safe to say that George Tru man will vote for Wilson for Delegate to Congress, as he is a staunch Demo, crat. Weight was recognized in the Eighteenth Legislature as the "financier" of that body and no excessive appropriation eould pass the doors of his committee. Enterprise. Too true. In the last hours of the Eighteenth Legislature the appropria tion bill had the right of way; but it was pocketed by the chairman of the . Committee, Dr. A. C. Wright, who held it as a menace in order to force the removal of the penitentiary to Prescott, and no appropriation, excessive or otherwise, was allowed to pass the doors of his committee. The result was that our territorial institutions were without funds for two years. Yes, the Enterprise is right for once. Tbs McCord administration was notoriously the most corrupt since the organization of the territory. The rascality was worked by means of the board of control, board of equalization aud loan commission. The Democratic platform pledges its nominees for the Legislature to do all in their power to abolish these boards, and take the government of the territory out of the hands of any one man. This is really the only issue before the people aside from the silver question. And yet there are men calling themselves Democrats who are fighting the Demo cratic legislative ticket in this county. Such men have as much right to a place in the Democratic party as the uuvil has in heaven. i The war cloud is gathering over other nations as we emerge from its shadows. France is willing to once again eoguge with England for the possession of foreign territory, and the tone of the French press is shown in the summing up of the situation by Ecclair, which remarks, "We have absolute right on the Nile and will brook no refusal." There are busy scenes in the English ship yards preparing boats for com mission, and the commanders of all warships of the British North American squadron have received orders to mobilize at Halifax. There are other clouds faintly visible in other lands, and the nineteenth century seems in deed to draw to a close with troublous times and -wars and rumors of wars. The many friends of U. S. Marshal Griffith were surprised to learn last Saturday night that he was an old soldier. They knew he had fought, bled and died in the star route service, but never dreamed that he had donned the blue iu defense of his country until it was so stated by "Colonel" Morrison, U. S. Attorney, and they still think it a dream. Hon. M. B. Moore is not holding a Federal position in Arizona, though he was a gallant Onion soldier and may get to the pie counter iu time. He assures us that John H. Bowman, Receiver of the Tucson Land Office was a soldier, and believing that Mr. Moore would not make an asser tion unless he thought it was true, and knowing that Mr. Morrison would, the Tribune will revise its remark that "There is not an ex-Union soldier holding a Federal position In Arizona by Presidential appointment" ex cept Mr. Bowman. The Tribune is always glad to make a correction when it finds itself mistaken. The' present campaign in Pinal county brings up reminiscences of closing scenes of the 18th Legislature, when Dr. A. C. Wright, as chairman of the ' Appropriation Committee, pocketed the general appropriation bill in order to force the removal of the penitentiary to Prescott, and the territory was left without money to run its institutions for two years. Hon. M. B. Moore, of this county, op posed prison removal, and in the course of the debate was accused by Dr Wright of being "no better than i horse thief." On account of Mr. Moore's physical condition the attack was considered cowardly and was hotly resented by Jim Finley and others, and before they got through with Uim, Dr. Wright wished he hadn't said it. This statement of facts is made to confirm Dr. Wright's claim of warm personal friendship existing be tween him and Mr. Moore, and not for any political reasons of course not, Mr. Moore stated before the conven tion that if Dr. Wright received the nomination for Councilman, he (Moore) would stump the county against him but for some reason, best known to himself, he has reconsidered that determination. "' The attempt of the Enterprise to falsify the record in trying to explain away the fact that the present county administration paid off an $8,500 in debtness left from 1896, would be ludicrous if it was not such a pitiful exhibition of falsification run mad. As a matter of faetrthe $8,500 of in debtedness was not paid by the rail road and other taxes of 1896, but it was an indebtedness of allowed claims of 1896 left after every dollar of the rail road and other tax money of 1896 was expended, and the indebtedness was not fully paid until 1897. Again, that sheet says in regard to the reduction of the running expenses of county government in the sum of (6,000, "any sensible man in the connty knows that this is the veriest . kind of slnsh and published to mislead voters." A careful computation of all the claims allowed on the county treasury for the years 1896 and 1897, respectively, shows that the total for 1896 is over $6,000 more than for the year 1897. Again, on the advice of the District Attorney the Board of Supervisors disallowed claims as illegal charges against the county amounting to more than $3,000, not a dollar of which has been , re covered against the county by suit or otherwise. The expenses of running each county office have been much re duced in every instance, as compared with 1896, and prior thereto, and with the present tax levy the county will be on a cash basis in 1899. The records show fob themselves, and we refer the voters of Final county to them and not to the prejudiced ipse dixit or hatred of any individual. Come again, Mr. Enterprise. It is now pretty generally admitted that the next congress will be demo cratic by from 15 to 40 majority. So that the republican cry that the elec tion of Brodie means statehood is sim ply a hoodoo, Stgr. J- F. WILSON Para D.legado .1 Congr..0 Por el P.rtido uemocrata. From El Demoerata. El nombre dei caballero que surieri- mos para Delecado nl r..,, - , v-ovj pur nuestro partido es bien conocido por todo el Territorio de Arizona, como hombre de sufficiente habilidad en la oratoria, que es lo indispensable para que represente a el pueblo en el Con- greso de los Estados Unidos. Las razones porqne debe ser aoDorta.- do son bastantes logicas, y a nadie del pueblo trabajador le son deaconocidas. Arizona cifra todo su porvenir en sub minas de plate, y para que estas pned an tener desarrollo es indispensable mandao al Congreso a nn hombre que sea soportado incondicional de todo aquello que beneficioso a esa medida, pnes si mandamos al Congreso a un hombre que no tenga in teres alguno en que a la plata se le de su valor equita- tivo, mostraremos con ello, que noso tros estamos por soportar lo que es en contra de nuestro propio benaficio. El General J. F. Wilson, ha sido, es. y sera los dias de su vida platista, por que ha estudiado detenidamente 14 cuestion monetaria yha venldo a la conclusion de que nuestro Territorio para progresar necesita que sua minas se pongan en desarrollo. El es uno de los primeros abogndos de nuestro Territorio, ha desempe fiado muchos empleos publicos y cuando ha sido escargado de ellos, bu registro eomo hombre honrado ha sido superior, El delegado Republicano eseojido en la convencion Republicano en la cuidad de Prescott, lo es el Coronel Brodie. Como soldado en el ultima guerra de esta nacion con Espana, mosotrp ser valiente y habil, y por esta recomenda- cion fue electo por mx partido bajo una platforms de oro. En el Congreso no se necesitan houv bres valientes, por que las cueetiooes se discuten por medio de eloqnencia y no a blazos, y eomo a Brodie le falta mucho para asr hombre da eatado y eloquente, no podemos eonfiarla- ese puesto tan importante. Si el Coronel Brodie hubier& sido electo bajo nna plataforma aoportando el dinero del pueblo pobre plata 16-1, y tuviera la capacidad de Wilson, po- driamos soportarlo por sua echo buen os en Cuba pero es todo lo eontrario, fue elejido por los republieanos para sacriBcarlo, y esto no es convenient para que el pueblo lo soporte. Si votamos al General Wilson, man- daremos al Congreso nn hombre capaz y que de&enda la causa del metal bianco, si mandamos a Brodie, repre sentara el dinero del rieo, el oro, y en- tonces ae mueatra que el pueblo pobre desprecia la plata, aun sabiendo qu eon el dessarrollo de las minas tcndran buen trabajo.

Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear There is only one way to cure deafness; and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing' will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused, oy uatarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
