L"Do'iir.DLV the llrst work in irrigation w hich tha government should undertake is the construction of a dam on the Gila River nt Sun Carlos, in Arizona, because this im provement would not only brin-; under cul tivation a large area of arid luuii for the use of white settlers, but would also relieve the urgent needs of thousands of friendly Indians, w ho are now in a starving condi tion because the wuter upon which they have been dependent for centuries h:is been diverted by white settlers above thorn. This improvement would be not only a strik ingobject leou of the advaitti-;re of irriga tion en a lartre scale, but also an act of mercy and justice. Uas Angeles Times r.ditoruil, Feb. 12, 1KB. It becomes the sad duty of the Tr.i BfSR to announce the death of our be loved l'resident, who passed quietly away this morning at twenty-four "minutes past 2 o'clock, the victim of an assassin's bullet. His last words were, "Nearer, my God, to Tbee." The n aine of McKinley will go down to his- tory alongside of those other martyr ! Presidents, Lincoln and Garfield, and j his death will be as deeply mourned. Whk the prophetic finger of Sena ton Thomas H. Benton pointed west ward, and the great statesman re marked: "There is the East there is India," be was thought to be a dreamer; but the Pacific railroads and fast ocean steamships have made it the most direct line of travel. The Citizen this week publishes a special dispatch from Washington which says it has been practically de cided that Judges Street and Doan will not be reappointed. The people of Arizona are loath to believe the re port, for Judge Doan especially has made a record of which any man might be proud, and Judge Street's ability is beyond question. The Tr.musK sincere ly hopes both may be called upon to nerve another four years. The Tkibune is essentially a news paper, as well as being a boomer for the San Carlos dam on the side. Last Saturday it contained twelve items of interest overlooked by a contemporary whlch-went out by the same mail, the most notable being the attempted as sassination of the' Presideut. The reading public takes little interest in billingsgate Attacks on "Tinhorn" Charley by "Thieving" Tom, and hence this paper does not propose to devote any part of its space to such literature. It has a higher object in view than to "down" somebody. Commenting on the tendency of the human race to "go west," the New York Evening Post says: "Two re markable human migrations are tin der way one of these movements tak ing thousands of people every month from the statjs constituting the East and great middle West to those of the far West, while the other is bringing into the country made poorer through the exodus a new set of people. Im migrants from the northern parts of Europe, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Russia, come to make their n w home on lands which the tide of emi gration has left unoccupied, or at least available for a new set of tillers." If the movement is kept up for a con siderable time the West will be the only exclusively American portion of the Union, yet it is least considered by the powers that be. , A Washisgton correspondent says: "As a general proposition the officials at the Department of Justice do not look with sympathy on the frequent attacks on territorial judges. Attor ney General Knox has already found that it is a common thing to make charges against a territorial judge. He says that all of them cannot be bad, and that there must undoubtedly be good ones among them. The Attorney Geueral attributes the tendency to make such charges to the fact that these officials are not appointed for life as are regular federal judges. Their appointmeuts are for only four years, and their offices are .temporary. The facility with which they can be removed on charges of almost any kind creates a desire for their removal for certain purposes, and thus the life of a territor ial Jid;c is novcr a satisfactory one." Thk Tribune hus been furnished a copy of Judge A. S. Humphreys' answer to the charges of the Kar Association of the Hawaiian Islands. To us it sterns complete, and the Attorney Gen eral has evidently come to the bane conclusion, us he lias sustained our former townsman iu every respect. In his answer submitted to Attorney Oeueral Knox, Judge Humphreys s;iys: j 'Termit me to call attention at the outset to the notable fact that, in spite of the votumiu jus material tiled ugtunst me tiud the very evident industry with which every act of mine which could possioiy be maae trie subject of a com plaint has been scrutinized and laid before, you and the apparent disregard of expeuse with which the persons op posing ms have undertaken their labors, there is uo chai afleeting my integrity as a niau, my impartiality as a judge in the triul of causes, or my knowledge of the law. In those par. ticuhirs, in which tlie public is most interested lest, the fouulaiu of justice be corrupted, the petitioners for my removal seem to have found no ground of complaint, and I may perhaps say here, w ithout impropriety, that of the causes tried before me which have been carried by appeal or writ of error to tue buprenle Court of the Hawaiian Islands (about seventy) only one has been reversed." KeaX St. Chaki.ks, oue of the lead ing spirits of the 2!st Legislature, ad mits that "it was in reality a republi can legislature disguised as demo cratic, and that it was composed of l honorable gentlemen deceived at times by designing politicians." Kean ought to know. , At this distance it looks very much like Prof. M. M. I'arker was not tret ting a fair shake. If he wants an in- vestijjation of his conduct while presi- dent of the University of Arizona it would seem that he is entitled to it. The position of a majority of No gales people in the Hoey case seems to be like that of the Irishman who said to his partner, "Pat, you'rb wrong' but I'm wid ve." Even the strictly partisan press now considers that Admiral Schley has his case won. The peopie have already decided the matter. AVues you see it in the Tkibuxe you may know it is true. The Naval Courtof Inquiry. Washixotox, D. C, Sept. 12. The members of the Schley eourt of inquiry, Admirals Dewey, Benhara and Howison, arrived at the navy yard at 12:30 o'clock. They wore civilian clothesand uo salute was fired as they entered the gate. Adniral Schley and his counsel arrived at the courtroom at 12:45. The court of inquiry coaveued at the Navy Yard at 1 p. m. Admiral Schley arose and said that with extreme regret he was obliged to challenge Admiral Howison as a mem ber of the court. The challenge was noted and court took an informal adjournment at 2:2:1 p. m. to permit Admiral llowison to prepare his statement in reply to Ad- miral Schley s cnarges. The court sustained the objection to Admiral Howison and excused him as a member of the court. This bt re garded a great victory for Schley, and a sharp snub to the, navy depart ment at the beginning of the proceed ings. Bnrt Mossmaa, captain of the Arizo na Rangers, is fast completing the or ganization of his company. Ue will not choose his sergeant, however, until the entire company is formed and tried. Four members have been selected and, strange to say, all of them are from Texas, originally. This choice has ! been made out of 243 applications. The applicants are from this territory, generally, but some hail from New Mexico. Thos. Holland, aB sbee cattle man of tho age of 2i years, will be a member of the company. Hollaud has been in Arizona for 4 years. Leonard Page, a deputy sheriff of Coehise county and fur years past with the Cananea Cattle Company at Greene's ranch, will also be one of the rangers. Possibly the man with the best record ia trail ing criminals is Uerbert Grover. He is the Arizona Cattle Association de tective and has for the past few years been working in southern Arizona. It was Grover who followed Matt Hurts, the daring train robber, into Montana and captured him after an attempted robbery on the S. P. road near liisbee. He also arreted and lodged in the Willcox jail Burt Alvord, the famous desperado. Alvord afterward escaped, and is cow a fugitive from justice. Grover is known over the territory as "Bert," and is S3 years of age. Geo. E. Scarborough of Tucson will also be a member of the company .-Enterprise. At Washington Cmp, Gee and Wil fiey, owners of the Pride of the West mine and reduction works, will im mediately enlarge the daily capacity of their reduction works from forty tons to two hundred tons. To that end the present reduction plant will be en tirely removed and a larger and more capacious establishment erected upon the site. It is credibly reported that the work of demolition commenced on Monday. This new improvement will add greatly to the consequence and imr portance of Washington Camp.

Special Dispatch to the BUFFALO, N. Y.,Sypt. 14. President McKinley died at 2:24 this (Saturday) morning surrounded by family and friends. ' The scene was most affecting. After bidding his wife an affectionate good-by, he said, "Nearer, my God, to Thee," these being his last words, and passed quietly away. The sudden and unexpected change in the patient's condition was caused by a complication in which the kidneys were found to be affected. Another Railroad. From the Sdo:nonvUlo nulleti:i.l Judge C. E. Moorniaa returned from Florence Monday wliera he had been on legal business. While in Florence Judge Moorman met and talked with a railroad surveying party who were in Florence for the purpose of beginning a Burvey there, up the Gila and Sau Pedro rivers to Benson. The survey ing party belong to the Santa Fe sys tem and came from Prcscott to Flor ence. Just what the Santa Fe would expect to gain by a connection at Ben son is not clear and the building of such a line would fit well with the theory that the Phelps-Dodge people, who will soon have a line from Benson to Deming and E! Paso, were entering into a trafiie arrangement with the Santa Fe. It has been the general un derstanding, o'r ratlier, supposition, that the Uisbee and El Paso road would do business with tho Eock Island which will soon reach El Paso. If the Puelps-Dodge people have such a business arrangement witSi the Bock Island, then tlvs Santi Fe would be tr hntM frmn Plioenix uo I - : ' the Gila and San Pedro rirers to some where near Old Camp -jrant, then up tho Aravaipa canyon and across by the Cedar Springs gap, striking theliila again about the eeutjr of this valley, thence up that stream to a connection with the Santa Fe between Silver City and Deming. Sui-h a route would be ! found to be entirely feasible, besides j it wou,a reH in the development of i SO(ne u the riehtfst m;neral 5ecl!ODs of i Arizona. Everything points to much j active railroad building ia Arizona 'next year. This valley stands a chance to get one or two more lines. The cou j neeting of the Gila valley with Clifton and Morenci a great agricultural sec tion with a population of in habitants with the greatest mining camps iu the southwest would only require about 40 miles of .railroad and this is believed to be the best railroad proposition on the map. Ringling Bros.' Excursions. Arrangements hare been completed by which all who wish to attend the performances of Ringling Bros.' World's Grmtest Sliows in Tueson, Tuesday, September 2ith, can secure special excursion rates on all lines of travel. This will be the only point in this vicinity where the great show will exhibit during the present reason, and those who fail to see it will miss the grandest amusement event of the year. Since last season Ringling Bros.' fam ous exhibition has been greatly en larged and is now beyoud all question the largest and best combined circus, menagerie and hippodrome in the United States. The performance is given by over 300 high-salaried special ists, in three ringt., on two stages,' in mid-air, and on' a huge qaa'ter-mile hippodrome track. The trained animal features, which are alone worth many times the price of admission to see, in clude Ringling Brothers' latest seusa tion, twenty elephants performing at one time, iu one ring ; Loekhart's fam ous elephant comedians; O'Brien's wonderful 6ixty-one horse act, and many other great trained animal dis plays. The grand free street parade which takes place at 10 o'clock on the morning of the exhibition is the most magnificent display ever Been. Don't miss it. Liquid air for power purposes costs 200 times as much as steam, requiring 200 degrees (Fahrenheit) of frost for its production, and that in any case it is expensive to make and most difficult of preservation. No doubt it excited great hope on its entry into tha world as a manufactured product, but, the better informed now regard it as des tined to relapse into the position of a mere scicatifij curiosity.

Pnosnlxta Benson, Connecting With the 3. P. and Phelps-Dorigs Line. Prom tho Phoenix Republican. Reliable information was received ia Phoenix yesterday that there is ia con templation the construction of a rail road which will beof great importance to this locality. The projected line will run from Phoenix to Benson, where it will connect with the Phelps Dodge railroad system, and also with the Southern Pacific. It is understood that Mr. F. M. Mur phy and some eastern associates are considering the advisability of building the line. For this purpose the Phoe nix & Eastern Railroad company was recently incorporated, and while a number of the directors are ofiicials of the Santa Fe, Prescott &. Phoenix rail way, this undertaking by Mr. Murphy has no connection with that company. He simply asked his friends in Pres cott to act as directors, and it hap pens that some of them are ofiicers of the Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix road It is understood that Mr. Murphy has put a survey party in the field to make a preliminary survey in order to en able him to determine whether such a line would be practicable at reasonable cost. It cannot be doubted that if the people along the line of the proposed road show a disposition to encourage its construction Mr. Murphy will be able tc secure necessary capital to build the road. He is now in Europe, but will return to Arizona next month, when, it is said, be will give the sub ject bis earnest attention. . The importance of the proposed line to Phoenix and the Salt River valley is apparent at a glance. The great min eral districts in Pinal county beyond Florence would be brought into direct connection with Phoenix, and a very important market for Salt River valley products would be opened. The Ray mine, as well as numerous other impor tant properties, in that locality, would be steadily operated if proviued with railroad facilities, whereas now the mining industry in that part of the ter itory is badly handicapped by the high cost of coke and fuel. By connecting at Benson with the great Phelps-Dodga system, another direct line from Phoenix to El Paso would be established. It is said that within another year the Phelps-Dodge system will comprise more thau one thousand miles of railroad, oue term inus being at a port on the western coast of Mexico. The country in Mex ico which is being developed by the new line is richly mineralized, and many important mines are being de veloped. Thus a new field for the trade of Phoenix merchants will be opeued, and the line to Benson could not fail to greatly stimulate the market for the products of this valley. Excursions to the Coast.
