" One Reason of Attack. Washington, Feb. 7. It may be that it was Admiral Dewey'a act in seizing a vessel loaded with arms and ammuni tion incited the Filipino insurgents to bring attack on the American soldiers for it is understood one of the bitterest of their grievances was what they de clared to be the unwarrantable inter ference with their shipping. About a week ago the admiral caused the seiz ure of the schooner Taning with a full supply of arms for the insur gents. Pinal's Representatives. . From the Phoenix Gazette. Bartleson has the reputation of being the most nonchalant of the members of the lower house. Arthur has not yet disclosed the fire behind his quiet acceptance of proceed ings. The secretary of the interior's report shows that there are in Arizona 29,847, 000 acres of desert land, and that there is water suflicient to irrigate 2,000,000 acres of land if judiciously used, just think of 2,000,000 acres more of Arizona land under cultivation by irrigation It would make Arizona one of the richest agricultural regions in the world. Let the farmers of the east who are snow bound for four or five months in the year come out and take up and culti vate this land on which vegetation never ceases, and they will know what profitable and pleasant farming is. An Editor's Platform. An Arkansas publisher announces his platform as follows : Our aim To tell the truth, even though the heavens take a tumble. Our paper Of the people, for the people, to be paid for by the people. Our religon Orthodox, with a belief in hell for delinquent subscribers. Our motto Take all in sight and rustle for more. Our policy To love our friends and brimstone our enemies. If thine enemy smite thee on one cheek, swipe him with haste and dexterity at the butt of the most convenient ear. What we advocate Our country, our flag, and one wife at a tima. Our object To live in pomp and oriental splendor. Makes the food more delicious and wholesome sovAt cjMcma powtscs co. , sew vomc. THE CATTLE MARKET. The Outlook as Sized up by Mr. Brady, the Cattls Broker. From the Tucbou Citiren.) E. G. Brady, the cattle broker, lias just returned from Denver, when; he attended the national cattlemen's con vention, and reports having had a plea sant trip, barring the excessive cold at Denver. It was so cold up there that his moustache was frozen off, anl peo ple now take him for a Philadelphia lawyer. Mr. Brady met all the big cattle buyers of the United States at Denver, Omaha and Kansas City, where he went, and they all say they will come to Arizona for cattlj for this spring, provided prices are low enough for them to cojjs out even. Nearly all of them lost mony on the Arizona cattle they purchased last year at the high prices paid by them, and they have given out that they will not pay last year's prices. Nearly all of these buyers have cattle on hand, and as they can buy cheaper in the north they will not coma south , nnless our cattlemen regulate prices for them. Texas will regulate the prices this year, as she listed over 300,0J0 head for sale at Denver, while not more than 25," 000 head were listed from Arizoni and the prices are going to be from four to five dollars lower than they were last year. BIG GARDEITS. To First ssi Grentest Wan Ornamental Lands of the Infant Raocn. The controlling idea of ancient art wa to becutify the earth. The ewtire world vraa convolved iu eastern imagi nation as a garden, eayo Li;.j)hieott's. The-Trt TOointiu awj Lrosd vnl leys, witih Uitir nvcis voji!eV plaice, were but the modern park rt n (ifped colossal. Like Es'it-s ivsrk, i; Colorado, or the YeiUxvsheae aiionul park, inducing thoiaMUnis of square miles and whole mountain rangvev ail kept as a delight to the eye, the east ern abode of men, including the whole visible world, was deemed n objfxrt tit to be beautified, in which Isniitapes, cities and contiguous kingdoms were to be eJeme &ts and play tb? rart which statues andefcaubbery do with us. The first garden of the world Eden was the greatest, and the ornamental lands of the infant races were co-extensive with the world. All Syria glittered in the sun with sparkling cities that dotted1 its worm plains like the white dwellings scattered on the hills ef southern France. It was a garden in vdhich cities ware the flowers and mountain ranges tie retreats, where t'he valley of Eoaselas and the vale of Cashmere would be buit su n ny spo Is. About the earliest work of art pro jected in that country the tower of Babel was designed- to be a monu ment so high that all the world could see it. Like Pikcte peak to the emi gran.te of the plains, H was to be a unl vereal guide, which, like a oompassior landmark, sibould prevent the people, wherever wandering, from scattering beyond recall. Bankruptcy to a savage. A correspondent of the London Times at Wanganui, New Zealand, sends us this amusing extract from a local newspaper: "A Msori chief who lost 40 through a white storekeeper going through the barikrrptcy court has given the following lucid exposi tion, of this particular LrtiUcU of Brit ish jurisprudence: 'Thepakehs (white man) who wants to become pakarapu (insolvent) goe& into business, acj gets lots of goods, and does not pay for them. He then gets all the money he can together, say, $2,000, and puts all of it, except 5, away where no one can find it. With the 5 he goes to a judge of the court and tells him he wants to become pakarapu. The judge then calls all the lawyers together, likewise all the men to whom the pakeha owes money, and he says: This man is pakarapu, but he wishes to give you all that he has got, and so he has asked me to divide this 5 among you all.' The judge thereupon gives the lawyers 4, and the remaining l.to the other men. Then the pakeha goes home.' " JIM'S BABY.' A Klondike Dos Goes Feraglng and Return with an Indian Infant. Two year ago, when, the Klondike fever was en, epidemic on the Pacific coast, says Truth, John Harms and wife, of Suisun, with their three-months-old baby, took passage on a steamer from SanFraneisoo to the gold fields. They took with them from their home a large dog, of no epeci.il breed, but, aa Mr. Barms cays, "dogs are valuable on the Yukon," and, as Mrs. ITaras said. "Jim was baby's: protect or." The many stories cf dogs' affec tion for children were not exaggerated in .Tirr.' cr.'j?. His only objeot of earth ly worthip was thnt Iffiby. After a few murals' residence on Bonanza' cxetk. tb2 baby lUa. and-Jim was in-, consuls Me.- lie would ' not permit cntr-. or attention even from his xa-'-ter. but kept watch over the little ir.istind on (he hill for rmiiT days and uikij.. One day lie came Louie, and,, nfter being fed by Mrs. Harms, trotted off in the direction of an. Indian village about a mile distant. He was gone for two or three days. One evening, when Mr. ar.d Mrs. nanns were eating their evening meal, (hey heard Jini'sseraicb. On (he door, and upon opening it there he s(ood. wagging his tall ferociously and locking very happy, and at his feet lay a lit tle fcdian baby he hod stolen and carried home, tied up in a piece of. old blue blanket-, with nothing visible but ita little round face. AN UNHEALTHY JOB. Door Openers in Blgr Stoves Da Tkett Work Between Hot ana Cold Air. Door openers have the most un healthy job on the list of occupations. During the holiday rush all the big stores have from two to a dozen such employes. They run principally to boys. In the great office buildings men do the work. Door epencrs are on' their feet from seven o'clock in the morning till business closes at six in the evening, and it is pull and push on the heavy doors all day long, al-. lowing persons' to' enter or leave the stores and buildings, without physical effort or without coming into contact with the cold latch handles. The work is poorly paid for. The wages are lower thn tho frven to the ori uary laborer, acd the nieu mid boys tngi-ged ia it are supposed to keep theuuc'.ves neatly clad, ar.d immaculate in linen. Iu some plafce uniforms arc provided ior thtin. Door openers are frequently miss ing from their posts. New faces smile on the regular frequenters or tenants of buildings, who, passing in, inquire:'. 'Where's John," or "Tim?" or what- ever the missing door opener's name may have been. "Pneumonia" is the general an swer, and sufficient explanation, . ,. .. For the doer opener is exposed fo the coldest blasts of winter and the com fortable heat that comes from within. His temperature is subject to such constant changes that he cannot "dress against" his conditions and sickness comes inevitably. Mystery of a Disappearing Carsjo. - The mjiatery of the disappearance of part of the cargo of the schooner Chal mer two years ego, while bound from' Baltimore to Savannah, has been solved by an examination of the vessel at Philadelphia, where she has been undergoing repairs. Ten tone of phos phate, the missing merchandise, were located between the inner ceiling and the outward planking, where it had worked- two years ago while the vessel was storm-tossed at sea. lit was neces sary to cut away part of the planking , on the in6tde and outside of the vessel to remove the phostphate, the work oc cupying over a week. The vessel had loet her insurable interest, and it was while the trouble was being inquired into that the mrssdng cargo was discov ered. Woman's Rights In Australia. In western Australia they push the equality of the Hjxes to a conclusion that would satisfy even, very ardect equal riirhters. There men folks act on the principle that if women de mand men's privileges tbey must, take with them men's responsibilities. Ac cordingly, a bench of mng's-trates have charged a woman with deserting her husband, end what is more, they have sent her to prison for a month because she steadfastly refused to contribute to the domestic comfort of her life part ner. A philosopher once remarked that human beings should have a care for what they wished, for that thing would surely come to them. The equal rights sisterhood had better take warning from their Australian cousin's plight or they may get more than they desire in the way of equality. N. Y. Sun.
