The Flagstaff Democrat is now is sued semi-weekly and is brim full of reading mattcr.interesting to progress ive readers. Arizona has a governor who has not lived in a territory long enough to be blinded by the anti-statehood hug-a-boo. Gvernor Irwin is a staunch sup porter of personal and political free dom. Tiie Alien law keeps foreign capital from investing in Arizona mines. Millions of dollars have been invested in Sonora that would have been in vested here if Arizoua bad not been a Territorv. Somkonk remarks that the Prospec tor favors statehood for the reason that it expects to increase its subscrip tion list when more people catnc into the country. For the sake of argu ment we acknowledge the truth of the assertion.

The Globe Silver Belt say that the Florence Enterprise is not a republi can paper. This will be news to the Enterprise. That paper in trying to ran the republican party to suit itself, comes pretty near doing it.

The Prospector is in doubt a to whether an advertisement of Zam loch's .gift distributions come under the lottery law or not, but we won t take any chances on it by advertising it, even if our friend, Waniiamakei's deputy in Tombstone, does rent the hall for the same gift enterprise.

The rally held in Presentt by the Apache company was an enthusiastic affair. Distance lsnds enchantment to such enthusiasm. It is piquant to contemplate that it did not occur in the Huachuca mountains where the sur rounding are favorable for a revolt, followed by the murder of the ranchers and destruction of Jihclr homes.

An EiUliusiastic Meeting ol Benson's Citizens. M. E. Cllins of Phenix Makes a Gr...il Speech in Support of Statehood Benson is l.oval for Pro gress, Ben,on, Nov. 17. Ed. Photkctor : Knowing your warm advocacy of self government and the splendid effort you are mak ing in behalf of statehood, 1 take the liberty of writing this short article. For several days past the question of statehood has been dircussed by the citizens of Benson and surrounding sections, and it was with a degree of pleasure that we noted the arrival of J. O. Dunbar and M. E. Collins of Maricopa county, in our city to dis cuss this important subject with our people Mr. Dnnbar is an old-timer in this section and ba a host of warm friends among our citizens, and Mr. Collins is one of the respected meu of our western neighbor, Maricopa. The posters put up iu various sec tions of the town by Supervisor Bry ant informed our people that tiic speaking would be in Pytnian hall at 7:30, and hither in targe numbers went the ladies and gentlemen of Benson to listen to the discussion. If. Gerwein of this town called tiro meeting lo order and in a few well chosen remarks introduced Major J. E. Moutanden, of the N, M. &. A. railroad, as chairman, who introduced M. E. Collins to the andience as the speaker of the evening. Mr. Collins did not dally with the subject but went at once to work to present the question, and for one hour and thirty minutes spoke iu his candid and eloquent manner. Few men are as gifted as this gentleman, and his sledge hammer blows deliver ed in support of self government and statehood elicited the hearty applause of his listeners, and had Poston oi Phenix or Wright of Tucson been present they would undoubtedly have learned how they stood in the estima tion of the sturdy citizens of this thriving town. Mr Collins took up the frivolous objections urged against tho constitution, and in a masteil unanswerable manner demonstrated the absurdity of the conclusions put forth by federal office holders and their assistants. 1 would write the speech in full as I took it dow 1, but presume your space will not admit o' its publication. Suffice it to say that when Hip speakers concluded their re marks, there was not one single op ponent of statehood in the town. Mnj6r Montanden, who stands high ly in the estimation of our people, spoke at length in advocacy cf thn coraStitntion. and showed in a convin cing manner that the hopes of Arizona lies in the pathway of statehood. Both the Major and Mr. Collins were loudly cheered and tho meeting adjourned with three rousing cheers for the state of Arizona. You can say to your readers Mr. Prospector that the thriving town of Benson will give almost a solid vole fur the constitution. H.G. IB Vo I.oolc Jlellrr. , Mr. J. V, Vickers and wife returned today from the east where they have been for a few weeks. Mr. Vickers reports a much better feeling toward Arizona in tho east than ever before. He says that our fight for admission as a state has turned a great many eyes towards us and capitalists es pecially are looking our way for in vestment. Our climate is receiving much nttcntioo just now in the cold sections of the country, and he pre dicts many visitors especially for the Salt River valley this winter. Mr. Vickers Is a staunch supporter of statehood, and believes that this is the time to strike the blew that will send millioas of idle capital to devel op our resources.

A FAMILY ROW. The Anti-Statehood Element Jtevolt acainst their Leader, The Florence Enterprise, not con teut with trying to retard the advance ment of Arizona by advocating tho continuance of territorial slavery, is entering a wedge to disrupt the patty to which it belongs. There is no de nying the fact that George Christ is the leader of the republican party of lire territory. He is active, energelic, and useful, and there is probably no other leader in the th. territory who can hold a candle to him us such. The Kutcrpriao ras: The republicans of Arizona aro being organized into rlubs under the rules of the National League suppos edly for active campaign ork. The only adjects to bo attained are the dissemination of tho principles of the party; tho promotion of harmony and tho solidifying of its forces for effect ive work and singleness of purpose. These are the elements of party suc cess and- it is only by tho exercise of these cohesive influences that the full effect of partisan action can be at tained. "To accomplish this somewhat diffi cult task in Arizona, where factions and personal antagonisms run to a riotous pitch, the league has commis sioned Hun. George W. Christ of No gales. It is a well known fact that Mr. Christ and quite an important element of the republican party of Arizona can never harmonize, and under no circumstances can even a semblance of cordiality be brought about between them. The present effort is all a silly farce: the organization may bo effected, but the old wounds are not healed and the orgauization will exist only in name. It seems to .the Enterprise that com mon sense alone ought to prompt the recognition of such a policy ujton the part of Mr. Christ, tor the people who do the voting will regard it as time, effort and opportunity wasted upon the altar of personal ambition for him to continue longer in a position for which an unfavorable concatenation of circumstances so utterly disqualify him.''
