A Wasbikgtos dispatch announces
:the appointment of William H. Boey,
.of Muncie, Indiana, as collector of
-customs at the port of Nogales, vice H,
K, Chenoweth, removed. This is the
culmination of a long and bitter fight
between factions of the Republican
party in Arizona. Charges of many
varieties, including partiality io ex
aminations and the carrying cf names
on the pay roll of those who did no
work were filed. While none of these
were clearly proven, it was thought
best by the President, upon recom
mendation of the Civil Service com
mission, to make a change to stop the
cow and for the benefit of the public
service. Allen T. Bird, editor of the
Oasis, was the conspicuous figure in
the fight against Mr. Chenoweth, and
through his efforts the removal was
largely brought about. Mr. Chenoweth
was the first mau appointed by Mc
Kinley in Arizona. He is a relative of
Mrs. McKiuley, who was a Chenoweth.
Sehatob W abbes, of Wyoming, who
led the fight in favor of Federal aid
for irrigation in the arid West, was ac
corded a grand reception by his con
stituents on his return to Cheyenne.
In summing up the situation, he said:
"If the fight is prosecuted in the future
as it has been in this congress the west
will receive its recognition. Our sec
tion lacks representation in the house,
and it is difficult to create any direct
f merest in irrigation matters, but I
can se djlht ahead in the senate,
'fbe house has, however, learned its
lesson this peadon, that the senate
is going to fight for thU appropriation
in the futore. U the friends of irriga
tion in the west will continue their
efforts with vigor pud persistence, I
believe that it will become popular
to advocate the development of Arid
America as it was to enter inter into a
war for Cuban freedom, to expand in- j
to West Indian possessions, or even to
extend our guidance to lands on the
other side of the globe, jumping mean
time clear across an empire within our
pwn borders which is capable, under
development, of supporting the entire
poj-uiatioo of the United States,"
The Doctor Takes a Dignified View of the
In the matter of the recent charges
made against Dr. McNaughton by the
alumni t the San Jose normal school
a committee appointed by the society
summoned the doctor to appear and
answer the charges. In answer to the
summons Dr. MeNaughton penned the
following reply, which has been made
"Gentlemen : In reply to your com
munication, dated June 28ih, I beg
to say that I am now keeping regular
office hours at the normal school
building, where I will be pleased to
confer with any persons interested in
matters pertaining to the welfare of
this state normal school. -
Whereas, It is currently reported
that your committee has permitted
rumors in your possession derogatory
to me to be given publicity without
giving me an opportunity first to be
heard in my defense; and, whereas,
any conclusions your committee may
arrive at in this matter could in no
sense be final; therefore, in pursuance
of my ideas of self-respect and of the
dignity of the position I now hold, 1
must respectfully decline to appear be
fore your committee.
I, however, most earnestly and re
spectfully request you to pursue your
investigations of my character to your
satisfaction and to present the results
thereof to the board of trustees of this
institution, as I shall request of them
a most searching and thorough inves
tigation of the whole matter and will
be ready at all times to vindicate my
self before them. Very respectfully,
"James McNaughton,
"President State Normal School."
It seems that with all his accusers
no one has as yet filed charges with
the board of trustees against him. The
talk is all being made through the
alumni society. On this question
Trustee Leavits is quot ed as saying :
"Dr. MeNaughton will be principal
of the normal school next session un
less those who have accused him in
the papers come forward and prefer
charges with the trustees. I am in
formed from the most reliable sources
that the circular printed ten years ago
in Council Bluffs was done in the
spirit of a heated campaign, and that
since then four of Ilia six men who
preferred the charges have voluntar
ily stated that they were in error. If
any of Dr. McNaughton's calumina
tors see fit to prefer charge against
him, the trustees will investigate
them; if not, we will go ahead and
give the people of the state one of the
best normal schools in existence with
Professor MeNaughton as principal."
Don't Cede the Lands.
From the Prescott Pick and Drill.
Knowing somewhat about legisla
tures, and more particularly of the
Arizona variety, we are most emphat
ically opposed to the scheme of ceding
the arid lands, or any other lands, to
the territory to be disposed of by exec
utive or legislative acts. Were a mil
lion acres, or even a hundred million
acres, ceded to Arizona "by an act of
Congress, the territory's rights and
interests therein would last no longer
than would a snowball in Hades; and,
furthermore, the territory's exchequer,
after the last acre had been sold (?),
would be represented by "0." No,
Congress needn't enact any more Cary
laws. Legislatures are already suffi
ciently corrupt without further temp
UtioDs being placed within their
reach. There is but one solution to
this "arid land" question govern
ment irrigation and ownership. Gov
ernor McCord, in a communication to
the Los Angeles Times, takes the
right view of the matter, and for the
benefit of our readers who have not
seen the article in the Times, we re
print the Governor's interesting letter.
Reclamation of Alkali Lands.
Prof. R. H. Forbes, director of the
agricultural experiment station, has
returned to Tucson from a trip to
Roswell, N. M., where he has been
watching the investigations being
carried on by Prof. Milton Whitney,
chief of the division of soils of the de
partment of agriculture.
In that region, aa in many other
parts of the west including portions of
Arizona, after a few years of cultiva
tion alkali appears near the surface of
the ground and gradually increases in
amount until cultivation can no long
er be carried on, says the Star. This
condition often results from misdirect
ed irrigation. Prof. Whitney is investi
gating the best means of managing
and removing the alkali from the soil.
In New Mexico the contour of the
ground and the quality of the irriga
tion water will apparently make the
problem an easy one to solve by suit
able irrigation and drainage.
The results of these investigations
when published, although carried on
locally, have a general application and
may be of general interest to Ari
zonians. The Safford Arizonian, formerly con
ducted by A. D. Webb, has been pur
chased and will be conducted in the

Federal Storage Reservoirs.
From the Los Angeles Express.
Federal aid for the construction of
reservoirs where the storm water in
the niouutains of this section might be
saved and utilized is tobe one of the
things which Congressman R. J.
Waters will attempt to bring about as
soon as congress meets. Mr. Waters
has given the subject much attention,
and fully realizes its importance. He
is being constantly importuned by large J
land owners and others in this end of
the state to work for government as
sistance in the matter.
Mr. Waters' friends desire to have
him placed upon either the arid lands
or river and harbor committee, or both,
in the next congress. Congressman
Barham, of the Santa Rosa district,' is
said to be also an applicant for the
place on the arid lands committee, and
may be considered, on account of
his longer service at Washington, to
have prior claims to the place.
The California delegation in congress
will meet at Saa Francisco some time
after June 7, at which time committee
assignments and other similar matters
will be agreed upon. Mr. Waters
said to-day that with reservoirs for the
collection and care of storm waters,
Southern California need never fear a
drouth. ,.

remedy is provided by 'the United

For antditor to Recommend Patent
From Sylvan Valley News, Brevard; N. CJ
It may be a question whether the
editor of a newspaper has the right to
publicly recommend any of the vari
ous proprietary medicines which flood
the market, yet as a preventive of
suffering we feel it a duty to say a
good word for Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. We
have known and used this medicine in
our family for twenty years and have
always found it reliable. In many
cases a dose of this remedy would save
hours of suffering while a physician is
awaited. We do not believe in depend
ing implicitly on any medicine for a
cure, but we do believe that if a bottle
of Cbmberlain's Diarrhoea Remedy
were kept on hand and administered
at the inception of an attack much
suffering might be avoided and in very
many cases the presence of a physician
would not be required. At least this
has been our experience during the
past twenty years. For sale by Brock

Rough Riders Want to Go to the Philip
From the Albuquerque Citlzeu.
Roosevelt's rough riders will reculist
for service in the Philippine Islands.
Every member of the regiment who
attended the recent -reunion in Las
Vegas has signed an agreement to go
if the opportunity presents itself.
Col. Roosevelt has received assur
ances from President McKlnley that
an entire brigade, organized along the
line of the rough rider regiment, will
be accepted to do duty in the Philip
pines. Lieutenant-Colonel Brodie will
command the "old guard," and it is
rumored that Governor Otero will be
the colonel of a regiment to be raised
either exclusively in New Mexico or in
this territory and Arizona jointly.
Roosevelt will go as a brigadier-gen
eral. He is now on his way to Washing
ton and it is expected that be will ar
rive there to-night, when a conference
will be held between him and the presi
dent and his cabinet in reference to the
matter and all the details arranged.
Colonel Roosevelt stated that the in
tention is to repeat the rapidity with
which his regiment was ushered into
service in the Cuban campaign and he
is confident that he will have his en'
tire brigade recruited and ready to sail
forhe Philippines by the latter part
of next month.
