The Way Some of the Candidates will
Feel After Next Tuesday.
(From the Washington Star.J
"Yes," said the man who was sitting
out in front of a log house, "there is
some malaria around here."
"Do you suffer much from it?"
"I don't suffer as much as 1 useter.
When I'm havin' a chill I think about
how good an' warm I'll be when the
fever comes, an' when I have the fever
I think about how cool the chill will
be, an' that way I manage to get right
smart o' comfort."'
(From the Public.
One of the democratic obscurities
whose names are mentioned in the list
of McKinleyites is Rear Admiral Bel
knap, a retired naval official wbo de
clares, according to the press dis
patches, that it is "as an old-fashioned
democrat" that he turns to Mc
Kinley. Admiral Belknap's percep
tions are clear.' Old-fashioned dem
ocrats were pro-slavery men. Old
fashioned democrats are Bourbons.
They belong with MoKinley. If
more of them would go to him, more
genuine democrats would come over
from the republican party to Bryan.
Admiral Belknap has found his right
place, in politics. The MoKinley re-
publican party, which he emhraces, is
to-day what the party of "old-fashioned
democrats" was in Lincoln's
time a lover of power, an enslaver of
men, and a hater of the declaration of
1 no murpny mstne.
About as unfair a presentation of
the political issues before the people
as could be made was that of U. S. At
torney Morrison at the Court House
Thursday evening. He had heard of
the ice trust, but no other. He called
the democrats "anti-expansionists'
when be knew very well that they are
not, and his comparison of the Philip
pine question with the Louisiana pur
chase was the veriest rot. There was
no forcible aggression and no one was
killed in the acquisition of Lousiana,
as Mr. Morrison should know, and
hence there was no similarity in the
two eases. IIU address left a poor im
pression. On the other hand, Governor Murphy
made a powerful speech, from au in
jured innocence stand point, and doubt
less worked up considerable sympathy
among those who are not posted as to
the Governor and his record. If his
performances eqaaled his promises he
would be a great success as a delegate
to Congress. The principal plea .wus
for statehood, the insincerity of which
was palpable, coming from Federal
officials with full dinner pails ia their
hands, who are not anxious to give up
their $3000 a year jobs. The Govern
or's explanation of his connection with
the funding of the Yavapai connty
bouds was all right, but not so as to
the Pima county narrow-gauge bonds,
which was far from satisfactory. The
truth regarding these can be found in
another column, and has been fur
nished the Tribune by Hon. Rochester
Ford, one of the attorneys in the case.
The most remarkable feature in the
Governor's speech was the manner in
which he evaded a discussion of cession
of arid lands, which has always been
his pet hobby. This is a matter ia
which the people of this eonnty are
most vitally interested, and a policy to
which they are bitterly opposed. In
this respect the Governor's speech was
a disappointment. He did promise,
however, to assist in securing an ap
propriation from the government for
building the San Carlos dam as a
specially meritorious individual propo
sition, but failed to point out the ut
ter impossibility of getting the appro
priation when the vacant lands bad
all been ceded to the territory.
The meeting was large and not very
enthusiastic, except for the singing of
Miss Lorona and her brothers, who
were encored. Prof. OUvas' orchestra
and the Philharmonic band furnished
instrumental music which was greatly
appreciated. Hon. F. M. Doan, onr
district Judge, presided with dignity
and grace, and altogether it was a
perfect love feast for Federal officials,
who had no complaints to make of
hard times, but were loud in their
praises of the prosperity that had be
New Southern Pacific Management.
New York, Oct. 30. The Mail and
Express says to-day :
"The appointment of Charles M.
Hays to be president of the Southern
Pacific will mark the beginning of
many important changes in the west
ern railroad system, as well as in the
management of the Southern Pacific
"In the first place, Mr. Huntington's
aggressive and independent policy with
reference to competitors will give way
to a more friendly Bpirit, and it can be
said that early steps will be taken to
renew the old traffic alliance on a basis
closely resembling a pool.
"In regard to the Southern Pacific
itself, Mr. Hays will pursue much the
same policy that he has on the Grand
Trunk and Wabash. His constant aim
has been to cut down operating ex
penses without injuring the road."
By an explosion in the wholesale
drug house of Tarrant & Co., of New
York, last Monday, the building was
wrecked and it is estimated that over
100 lives were lost. The explosion
occurred during the noon hour and
many of the employes were eating
their lunch in the building. There
were 200 girls in the building at the
time. A fire engine was destroyed by
falling walls. Of 200 people eating
lunch in an adjoining restaurant over
twenty were killed.

The End of the World in 1914.
A famous scientist predicts that the
world will come to an end in 1914,
basing his calculations on the revela
tions of the Bible. If this is so,. it is
well for us to get what pleasure we
can out of the few years that remain
for us to live. One of the surest ways
to enjoy life is the possession of good
health, and a well regulated stomach,

that arise from a bad stomach. It
cures dyspepsia, constipation fever and

The Argonaut's Argument Against Bryan.
From the Saturday Post.
An editorial in this interesting
weekly consolidates its opposition to
Bryan ou the one possibility that he
might as President of the United
States, under present laws and in full
harmony with the contract, pay all
that part of the pubiij debt incurred
as a "coin" obligation in the lawful
coin of the United States. The Argo
naut's position is that the contract of
the United States with those lending
the government meney gave the lawful
option to pay the debt in either gold
or silver at the lawful ratio of these
metals. This is sixteen ounces of sil
ver to one ounce of gold. That is
what coin of the United States was
when the debt was incurred. It is the
lawful ratio now. This is what the
"The bonded indebtedness of the
United States amounts to $1,046,000,00.
All of this vast sum is represented by
bonds in which (with the exception of
$200,000,000 of the war issue of 1898 re
funded at lower interest during the
last year) the money of redemption is
denominated "coin," which may be
either gold or silver at the option of
the government. The option of the
administration is the option of the
We should like to enquire why the
government should not avail itself of
its lawful option?
Is there any reason why the people
should have the public debt increased
by a nullification of the contract op
tion to pay in coin of silver or of gold
at the lawful and established ratio 1
A private contract in which there
was an obligation by a borrower to pay
in grain and in which grain was de
fined to be either wheat or barley and
in which the ratio of each to the other
wasdefined and fixed with the option
of payment ia the borrower would be
paid in the cheaper grain. Such exer
cise of the option would be hone st. It
would be valid in law. No court would
nullify this contract option.
Why should the people of the United
States not have the advantage of their
clear contract option? The reason is
that the government is controlled by
the bond holders and not by the people.
In addition to the plain provision of
the public debt contract that the debt
was payable in coin, and that coin was
silver or gold 16 to 1 is the addi
tional strong fact that special bond
holders' legislation has diminished the
value of one of the coin metals silver
and increased the value of the other
gold. Some of the legislation was
secret and noavowed. The creditors'
movement was widespread to exclude
silver as a money measure of value and
to throw the whole burden of this
measure ou gold. The result has been
to increase- the value of credits. It
takes more to satisfy a debt incurred
in coin with gold only as a measure of
product to pay with then it would with
an option of silver or gold. Fixed
values such as real estate most clearly
show this result. Other things being
equal, real estate has shrunk in value
all over the world. The effect of the
widespread conspiracy to demonetize
silver has affected all countries. In the
literal fulfillment of the contract hon
esty and good faith are all on the side
of the people. In the change of the
contract or attempted change, dishon
esty is all on the side of the creditor
The interpretation and fulfillment of
the people's contract on the public
debt has nothing necessarily to do
with the present or future standard of
value. A man may consider the sole
gold standard best suited to present
conditions. There is no. reason on this
account to repudiate the original
public debt contract. The bond-hold;-
ers have sought to repudiate the con
tract to pay in coin. By a series of ex-
post facto laws the agents of the bond
holders seek to change the plain coin
contract and to destroy the option ot
the people nnder that contract to pay
silver or gold. The contract of the
people with the bond-holders is clear
and specific. It is to pay in coin of the
United States. Coin was defined in
the statutes, at the time. There was
no uncertainty about any of the terms
of the contract. A very large part of
the debt obligations netted the govern
ment less than fifty cents in gold on
the dollar. All of the war debt bonds
were heavily discounted. In an aver
age of years and prices, the products
and property of the unprivileged and.
great mass of the people, have been
more nearly of similar value at the
time the debt was incurred, and since
the principal has commenced to be
met, measured by the silver unit than
by the gold unit. 'The totally unex
pected new discoveries and increased
production of gold has diminished the
difference and increase of money value,
due to the demonetization of silver.
Had it not been for this increased pro
duction of gold the shrinkage of values,'
as in. the case of real estate, would
have been most disastrous.. Real estate
has indeed touched bottom. It is now
on the mend. But the loss aud suffer
ing in that one class of property due
to an unfair and dishonest change of
the measure of value has been fright
ful. Whether the future money- standard
measure of, value Is to be the gold unit,
defined as to weight, and fineness, just

TWO GIRLS TAKEN IN
Lillian Lozeola and Emma Waters Ar
rested In Florence.
From the Phoenix Republican.
Thomas P. King, the step-father of
Emma Watters, the 15-year-old girl,
who was enticed away from home by
Lillian Lazeola,. both of whom were
arrested in Florence last Monday, called
at the Republican office to correct an.
error of statement concerning the de
tention of his step-daughter at the
sheriff's office. It was. said that she
had at first stubbornly refused to go
home and had used disgraceful- lan
guage toward Mr. King and her mother.
Mr. King denies that she used such
language or refused to go home, but
was. ashamed to go with her blond ined
hair and in the "widow's weeds' with
which the Lazeola woman had clothed
Mr. King is a respectable man, a res
ident of this territory for twenty years
and ia at present foreman of S. S.
Campbell's mine at Johnson, in the
Dragoons. He was called home by
news of the disappearance of his step
daughter. He was much moved by
the incident and said he was going to
remain, here aatil he has had some
satisfaction at law, and if not by law,
some other way. He says he is not
particularly hopeful that the law will
do anything for him. He has learned
that notwithstanding the extremely
flagrant crime of enticing a young girl
away from home for immoral purposes
the district attorney at first refused to
authorize a warrant for the- arrast of
the Lazeola woman and did not do so
until the matter was brought before
Judge Street, who commanded him to
cause the warrant to be issued. The
next thing that discouraged Mr. King,
he says,, was the ridiculously low bail,
$100, on which the wo'bart was re
leased. He, thinks if she is not as
foolish as she is wicked she will not
be present at her trial, and that if she
should be there obstacles will be put
in the way. of her proper punishment.
Mr. King is engaged in looking for a
young man named Berry, who, he says,
is, with others, at the bottom of the
matter, and the woman Lazeola is only
a Stool pigeon.
He related a discovery which had
been. made which must Be alarming to
mothers of young girls in the Phoenix
schools. lie says that far. some time
respectable young school girls have
been, receiving notes from disrepu
table men trying, to arrange meetings.
These aotes have-been delivered by
boys and come from hangerB-on about
saloons, who' suggest a meeting, be
tween the recipients of iho notes and
well known women- of t-ae Lazeola
class. He hopes now to make an ex
ample of certain persons so that great
er safety may be thrown about, other
school girls. When this matter has
been disposed of Mr. King will take
his family back to the mine with him.
