Senator Chandler, Republican, his pome forward with a scheme * looking to the remonetization silver. The Senator proposes radical meth 0(1h in bringing this about. He content plates the introduction in the Semte aftor the reconvening | congress of a resolution which he j will advocate, asking the United j * States to invite all countries in the , world, eastern, western and south ern to attend a m notary confer - I ene«. The new features of the pro posed conference is that it shall not! be restrict <1 to European gold standard countriesbu shall include South America and oriental silver standard countries. Moreover in vitations to the conferance are to contain a declaration of the United States that the purpose of the con ference shall be the establishment and rriaintainancs of an Interna tiona) ratjlo to wh ' h specific decla ration shill be added that if such a ratio cannot be agreed upon it will be the purpose of the United States to adopt a single standard and that standard not gold but ilver. By taking this extreme position, not as yet advocated in Congress even by thrs radical silver men, Chandler thinks the hands of the gold stand ard countries not now trading ex tensively with the western world can be forced. The San Francisco Examiner ha the following to say of Arizona ‘ The Arizona press and people have shown proper spirit in indig nantly resenting the attitude of the Congressmen who have resisted the admission of the Territo y to State, hood on the ground that it is a desert land given over, between mining camps, to the cactus and coyote. The Arizona of the melo-' drama and the frontier romance is a prosperous, orderly and growing commonwealth, tit for all the duties of Statehood. Arizona now lacks but a few thousand of the number of inhabitants to entitle it to a Representative in Congress. Its public school system is one of the bent ia the country. It has devel oped agricultural resources that place it alongside the great com monwealths of West. The des ert hsa been pushed back and with the extension of the irrigation sys tem is likely to have nothing left of it but the eternal rocks of the mountain.. The only objection to admitting th? Territory is chat of revenue. Tie state government costs about twice as much as the territorial. But ss the expense is to be borne by the people of Ari zona themselves they ought to be given the privilege of supporting the kind of a government that they want/, The Territorial Funded Bonds. The Gazette is infor nel hy Ter ritorial Treasurer Fleming that the case agiinst him preferred by Sea songood & Meyer, of Cincinnati, came up in the New York court of appeals, D*ootnber 13; h and was thrown out, thereby forfeiting to the Territory the SIO,OOO deposit. The bonds of the original issue are now in the hands of the Territorial Treasurer, awaiting a purchaser, with little chance at present in sight.. They embrace $500,000, bearing interest at 5 per cent an num. Owing to the stringency of the times, this amount appears large indeed to the eastern capital , ist, and an offer of par is regarded as extremely unlikely for months to com*. —Gazette, j “Distance lends enchantment to j the view*' was never more forcibly | illustrated than at the Yuma peni- I teutiary. For years the problem of how to get. raw material at Yuma to work up into marketable shape by prison labor has puzzled the wisest lie ids for it must be re j membered that the labor there is I unskilled and can only be turned j to account in a crude fashion. The cutting of stone into shapely building blocks was an industry that could be worked to advantage but the expense of shipping it to the prison would eat up the profit. It was only at the quarterly meet ing of the commissioners held this week that the fact dawned upon them that right at the prison.doors, in fact the ground upon which the prison *is constructed contains as tipe a quality of granite as Arizona can boast of. It is not neoessary to go into de tail of the value of the discovery, s'raply let it be stated that every able bodied prisoner of the 170 now confined there will be at work within a fortnight dressing ibis rock for the use or the territory in constructing public buildings. The rock takes a most beautiful polish and will also be valuable for many purposes besides that of erecting the walls of buildings. The above aptly illustrates the human fault of rushing to distant fields for wealth which lies at our doors.—Prospec tor. A young Baltimore beau en a recent visit to Chicago was riding in a crowded car in that city, when two bustling women who entered exclaimed, “There’s no chance of getting a seat in here.” The Balti raorean doffed his hat and invited her to take his place, to her utter surprise. Tiie car became still more crowded, and madame’s shrill voice said, “Won't you sit in my lap?” The courtly Baltimarean bowed again and said, “I do not deem myself worthy of that honor.” “Why, I didn’t mean you. I was talking to Eliza,” was the indignant answer. An acquaintance of the Btltimorean told the story on his return to this city. The Star says: “The public school system of Arizona was in augurated in Tuc3on twenty-three years ago. To is was school for boys which was taught by Jo in A. Spring. No girls were in a'tend ance. The following year the first public school for girls was opened by Mrs. L. C. Hughes. From this small beginning we have now hundreds of school houses and teachers, and yet a quarter of a century has not passed since the opening of the first public Bchool in Arizona ” The saliva of dogs and cats is especially rich in bacteria, that of latter containing a form which is seldom observed and so fatal that rabbit* and guinea pigs inoculated with it die in twenty-four hours. The dog’s saliva contains an even greater number of bacteria plus oc casional eggs of intestinal worms and so on. Tiiose fond and loving women who are prone to waste their caresses upon lapdogs will be interested in this item.—Pharma ceutical Era. The era of economy which has. been inaugurated by ihe territorial administration will eventual! ylcad to a much lighter burden of taxa tion on the people of Arizona. — P roepector. Tiro Railroad* to Yuma. National City Record: The rapidiiy with which we are acensn alating railroads to Yuma is start ling, not to sav !»■•*w l l liin r. Dir ing the past week Mr. Bramin re turned from San Francisco and de clares that he will b iitd ins road to Yuma if the loud subsidy is raised. He only staid in th * city two days and then departed for the east with the avowed intention of pushing the road And then comes “Our Billy.” who m »de a quiet sneak down to the City of Mexico and se cured* concession from that gov ernment for a road through Mexi can territory. This places the peo ple of the bay region between two fires and divides their.energies, and inconsequence the probabilities are that we will get no r >;vd at all. There should be a concentration of energy uoou one scheme or the other, anil (He sooner biitr of the projects is given the cold shoulder the better. We must confess that Mr. Carlson his the moti in sight, but perhaps Mr. Brain m will com e to the point Inter on. Go?. Hughes’ Ylsit. * Governor L. 0. Hughes attended the meeting of the Board of Prison Commissioners Wednesday, for the purpose of devising some if possible, whereby the prison labor can be utilized and the' institution pub upon p self sustaining basis, by the expenditure of such a sum of money as the territory can afford to devote to this purpose. The Gov ernor has an caglq’s eye upon the best interests of the territorial in - stitutions, and their management, and seems determined that they shall bo run on a strict business basis, and for the best good of all concerned.—Sentinel. Prison Commissioners §. O. Bagg and A. G. Williams, held their reg ular quarterly session this week, commencing on Tuesday. They found the prison in excellent shape and werß well pleased with the im provements made by Superintend ent Gates. The commissioners have g lined the respect of all with whom they have had business re lations, by their promptness and business-like method of dispatch ing the work before tham.—-Semi ns!. A rather strange story is told about the way the men operating theGunsight mines pay thßir min ers. Ttiey e n iloy Mexicans at thn rate of one dollar a day, compel them to live at the company board ing house, charging them one dollar a clay, and only give them five day’s work a week. If thik story is true these thrifty Eistern gentle men should bo ruu out of the country. A large party has been organized in Southern California for a trip down the river and into the gulf. They have made arrangements to take one of the steamer company’s barges for going down and when ever they get ready to come backja steamer will go down for them.
