"It is apparent that something must be
done to provide water for the Indians. In
order to demonstrate our ability to govern
new peoples we must show a better record
for those now in our care." Prof. F. H.
Newell, In a lecture in Washington, Deo.
We are grieved to announce that the
British have captured ' Pretoria and
the South African republics have been
knocked out of existence.
Were those graves decorated last
Wednesday in honor ol heroes who
died that an empire might live? The
election this fall will determine that

The weather is getting down about
right now, and it makes one feel good
all over. The mercury is trying up
about the 110 mark in the daytime,
but the nights are cool and delightful.
It is said an obscure publication re'
cently devoted four of its five columns
to personal abuse of the Tribune's
modest editor. If this rumor is found
to be true we shall doubtless get real
Our better half edited the TnmusE
last week While the old man was at
tending the Democratic Territorial
Convention as a delegate. Subscrib
ers were greatly pleased with the im
proved tone of the paper.
Thk recent democratic convention in
Phoenix was held four blocks from a
.saloon, and when the delegates did as
semble in that republican resort they
drank buttermilk with one or two ex
ceptions. It doesn't require anything
exciting to induce a man to enthuse
for Bryan this year.
Is the recent democratic convention
something was said about an aspirant
for office being a "bawn democrat,"
: meaning, we suppose, that he was a
democrat from infancy about as miser
able a tribute to his character as could
be imagined. In these days a man
who endorses the democratic platform
from conviction and principle is con
sidered much more worthy of com
mendation among people who have a
mind above an oyster's-.
i Tub Tribune has no complaint to
make against any man for refusing to
Gllnnnrf. an n n t7fi-f Y tt itanriirlQfa ara r
1 if running on his own party ticket. In
: fact, we admire and emulate such in
dependence. But a man who goes in -to
a convention as a delegate as well
as a candidate for office, is defeated
4fr tVia nAminnt.lnn mniruc - m nr a Via
nomination of his opponent unanimous,
and then goes out and tries to defeat
him, is beneath the notice of decent
'I men. This is onr answer to four
i columns of tirade.
I Thb editor of the Tribune was a
member of the committee on platform
in the late democratic territorial con
vention and got in his work in the
shape of the following resolution,
which represents more fully than bdv
! thing else the Tribune's politics:
. We are strongly in favcr of a government
system of irrigation of arid lands, and the
: building of storage reservoirs by the gov
ernment, and oppose the cession of arid
Jands to the states and territories. A mere
tithe of the money spent in subjugating the
'Filipinos and acquiring the Philippine
inlands, if Judiciously expended in water
'storage, would result in an expansion a
thousand fold more beneficial to our people.
While in Phoenix last week Gover-
nor Murphy allowed us to read copies
of letters he had recently mailed to
s Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock,
Representative Sherman, chairman of
the House Committee on Indian Af
fairs, and others, in which he strongly
prged the building of the San Carlos
reservoir on the plans proposed by the
'ingineers of the Geological Survey.
'The letters proved to us that the Gov
ernor has taken up the matter in earn
est, and that he has made an ex--,
laustive study of the subject, as his
irgu orients in favor of construction
!: f the dam as a specially meritorious
' ndividual case are nnanswerable.
' The Tribune regrets that it has been
ed astray as to Governor Murphy's
losition in this matter and hastens to
aake the amende honorable.
Tub celebrated case of Piual county
vs. the bondsmen of P. R. Brady, Jr.,
defaulting county treasurer, came to
an abrupt conclusion last Saturday
after the jurymen were in the box.
The suit wis for something over $6,000,
but by consent of the attorneys Judge
Doan instructed the jury to bring in a
verdict for $1,000. The matter was in
such shape that it was impossible to
tell when the' shortage took place
owing to the fact that the Board of
Supervisors had made settlement with
the Treasurer on bank statements and
other papers contrary to law, which
requires the actual cash to be counted.
United States Attornoy Morrison had
been employed by the Supervisors in
these Brady cases at an expense to the
county of $500, notwithstanding we
have two able lawyers in District At
torney Wm. R. Stone and his assistant,
James E. O'Connor, Esq. Mark Smith
conducted the defense. The Tribune
has fek obliged to criticise the Board
of Supervisors for its glaring neglect
of duty and has thereby gained the en
mity of at least two of its members.
This if to be regretted, as it is not a
personal matter with us. Official acts
are matters which every citizen is in
terested in, and are a perfectly. fit sub
ject for criticism. A newspaper which
fails to call attention to 'neglect of
duty on the part of public servants is
not properly performing its mission
This is all the Tribune has done, and
it claims no particular credit for it,
though letters and words of com
mendation recently received would iu
dieate that it is something out of the
way in Pinal county journalism.

The Eagle mill is the pride of the
territory, aud has grown to be one of
Tucson's principal manufactories. The
grade of flour turned out is unexcelled,
and much of it is sold in this valley.
Editor Smalley has made a vast im
provement in the Citizen since he
assumed its management. In addition
to a new dress, it displays an effort to
secure the news not heretofore notice
able. The Star continues to be the lead
ing morning newspaper of Southern
Arizona. Ex-Goreruor Hughes has
made a number of improvements in bis
paper, and will add a linotype machine
within the next month.
It was a matter of great surprise to
some of our friends when told that
there were two papers published in an
adjoining county. They supposed all
tbe time we were a monopolist. Perish
the thought! Bui such is fame.

one leads in a live town like Florence,
it does a man good to get out among
people of a quieter disposition and

Tbe two national banks in Tucson,
the Consolidated and Arizona, are
flourishing institutions and solid as a
rock financially. They both advertise
in the Tribune, and .we could not
well say otherwise, nowithstanding
we are opposed to the national bank
ing system. However, we trust this
opposition of ours will not cause them
to go out of business, thereby losing to
us valuable and esteemed advertisers.
When the news came over the tele
phone last Saturday that a compromise
had been effected for $1,000, the Tuc
son sureties on defaulting County
Treasurer Brady's bond acted like
they had won a big prize in the Louisi
ana lottery. The impression was that
if the eounty gets enough to pay Bob
Morrison's fee it might consider itself
fortunate, whereas the Tucson men
made a bona fide offer of $4,000 cash to
settle the defalcation, to which our
Board of Supervisors did not deign a
reply. No matter what the shortage
is, it will be paid, and suit commenced
at once on the bonds of the Supervisors
to recover the same and for neglect of
duty.' The Tribune makes this state
ment by authority) and ventures to re
mark on its own account that a little
politeness doesn't cost much.

What it Means.
iFrDro the Tucson Star.
Editor C. D. Eeppy, of the Florence
Tribune, is in the city, and reports
Florence enjoying more than usual
prosperity. Ue has a hobby, that is,
the water reservoir project of the
Buttes or the San Carlos. Either suits
him, but he wants a dam to store the
flood waters of the Gila, by and
through which the Indians on the
Pima reservation cad be supplied with
water for farming purposes, and by
which they may become self-sustainine.
Editor Reppy is the father of the
policy urging the government to
build a reservoir for conserving water
for these Indians. He has been stead
ily advocating the policy through
his journal, the Tkibuse, since he be
came its editor and proprietor. It is
not surprising that he considers it first
in consequence to ail other issues, for
its accomplishment means 7,000 In
dians made self-supporting. It also
means a city of several thousand in
habitants at Florence and a large,
prosperous farming community in the
valley of the Gila. The movement for
building this reservoir by government
aid was conceived by a newspaper man,
like everything of importance in the
territory has been. Its agitation has
been carried on by the press and the
result will be achieved by the press.
Editor Eeppy has just cause to be
proud of the progress thus far made
in the Buttes or San Carlos dam

W baby that is thin and not v
well nourished and for the $
S mother whose milk does y
K not nourish the baby. g
Sit is equally good for the
boy or fiirl who is thin and g
y pale and not well nourished &
Ijf by their food; also for the
l anaemic or consumptive J
V adult , that is losing flesh V
. In fact, for all conditions Hf
y of wasting, it is the food
medicine that will nourish
f and build up the body and
g give new life and energy
when all other means fail.
