A Military company has been organized at Nogales. Yuma post office has been made a third class office. Yuma is grow, rag. Notwithstanding the Santa Fe Is in the hands of receivers, the North and South road will be con tinued. It is now said the territory will -appeal to the Supreme Court from the order of Judge Sloan granting a new trial to Ed Tewkesberry. • The Florence Tribune has enter ed upon its third year. It is a live paper and is doing excellent work fur its section. It deserves a liberal patronage. Congress and the Washington officials all along the line are devot ing most of their time in earnest solicitude for the welfare of the deposed Kanaka queen. Zack Booth who made his es cape from the Territorial Prison a week or two ago, was recaptured near Harqna Hala. He will do duty now for awhile in the “hole in the walk” The World’s Fair grounds at Chicago was swept by a conflagra tion a day or two ago. The white city was rednced to ashes in a few hours. The fire is supposed to have been set by two ejected tramps. It is said that Attorney General Olney will shoitly retire from tho cabinet to be succeeded by Post master General Bissell and that probably Bissell will be succeeded as postmaster general by Don M. Dickinson. The latest from Honolulu states that on Dec. 19th, U. S. Minister ; . Willis made a formal demand upon Minister Dole of the provisionnl government of Hawaii, to place the queen in power. Minister Dole flatly refused. The Secretary of the Treasury said the other day that there is more than enough money to trans act the business of the country. He was probably correct, because there is very little business now being transacted. * Matters appear to be assuming rather a serious aspect at Honolulu. The provisional government is de termined to resist every effort made to restore the queen to power and in this it has the sympathy of the majority of the people of the Unit ed States. The Florence Tribune says: Tak ing everything into consideration, fcheputlook for a.favorable year for the farmers of the C isa Grande \ valley is beter than it h-ts bee * for several ye r», and v.t.< the m-'fs prosperous ~>» I.aes o: ousines3 wd; ; be bettor. i Our Territorial Superintend ent of Public Instruction, F. J. Netherton, is making for himself a record of which his friends, feel justly proud. In its mention of the proceedings of the late Territorial institute at Tucson, a Tucson paper says: “Education in Arizona” by Ter ritorial Superintendent of Public Instruction F. J. Netherton, was to judge from the frequent applause and the remarks heard on all sides during tho intermission, the most satisfactory paper of the session. He makes the school laws the basis of every school system, and any improvements in the lawH will oper ate directly to the betterment of the schools. He advocated a law to compel nice buildings and sur roundings for the teachers and pnpils, and ample apparatus; thd paying of trustees for labor and time actually used in school work; competent examining boards, who will see to it that none but fit teach ers are granted the right to teach; he also gave illustrations of the re sults of incompetent and unfit ex amining boards in this territory; referring to justifying the ter ritorial board of education in its action regarding territorial diplo mas. He also made a plea for good pay for competent teachers, and a high standard of examinations to shut out the unfit ones; high schools in the territory should be establish ed and maintained; a uniform series of text books, furnished to pupils without cost to them; that in primary grades children be not ad mitted and thus allowed to break the grading, other than at begin ning of the terms; equal pay for competent lady teachers with males; recognition by the laws at the Ari zona Teachers’ Association, and closed with a few encouraging words to teachers and a reminder ■ that if teachers would ameliorate ■ their conditions they must look out for themselves. A short recess 1 was then taken. Prof. Lee, of Phoenix, stated that he considered the paper of Supt. Netherton, on “Education in ’ Arizona,” as a most valuable pro duction which should be placed in ! the hands of every teacher in the territory, and moved that it be ’ printed in pamphlet form and dis tributed throughout the territory. Prof. Wollam amended the motion to include that it also be printed in the papers of the territory so far as 1 practicable, in which the motion ' was unanimously carried amid ap ' plause. Judge Sloan has granted a new trial to Ed Tewkesbury, no record of his having entered a plea of guilty or not guilty appearing in the records of the district court of Maricopa county. The new trial will cost the tax payers of this county another large sum of money. The entire amount ought to come out of the pocket of the party who . omitted to perform his duty in the ( matter. The Territorial Institute at 1 Tucson manifested its appreciation of the efficient services of our young generalissimo of our terri torial schools, Prof. F. J. Nether ton. by unanimously electing him president of the Territorial Teach ers Association. The universal verdict of the teachers was that Supt. Netherton, is the right man in the right place.
