California Democrats, whether dis
gruntled or not, have awakened to a
realization that conditions politically
are in such a perplexing muddle in
the Golden State as to warrant more
activity by party leaders, to t-e end
thatexistingevils maybe remedied and
the future of the state ea'eguarded.
Those high in the councils of De
mocracy men willing to sacrifice
themselves for the public weal met
in San Francisco a few days since and
resolved to take immediate steps for
strengthening party lines and main-
taining Democrat icprinciplt s as form
ulated by Thomas JitTerson. To do
this, it was decided to establish a
daily paper in San Franc'sco that
could be depended upon to voice such
sentiments an would redound to the
public welfare, and it was figured that
fl.OOO.OOO would be required to in
stall a modern newspaper. We agiee
with the gentlen en that thorough
and conscientious publicity will rec
tify obnoxious conditions, and the
press is the medium through which
reformations must be sought. But
why establish another paper We
have in our mind's eje a San Fran
cisco publication Tbo Star which
would, we presume, with less than
l,000,000 backing, publish a dally
editirn. The Star is known far and
near and enjoy an unique standing
in that it is fearless and honorable,
the trenchant pen of its venerable
editor John Barry alwavs being
wielded in defense, of the weak as
the strong, in support of justice as
against roguery, alwavs advocating
clean government and urging on con
ditions to elevate and ameliorate
the mass. Mr. Barry is an able jour
nalist, and we would be pleased to see
The Star spring forth a metropolitan
daily; it would be helpful to San
rrancisco, of incalculable benefit to
California and would at once go to
the front as an unswerving, consci
entious exponent of the people.

Important Strike of Ore Below Water
Level Means Much for the
FAVORABLE ASPECT OF MINING DEVELOPMENT
Conditions along lines of uevelop-
ment and exploitation with the T O.
M. Co. give assurance of the stability
of theore bodies and, commensurate!-,
the increase in values. The recent
strike on the 700-foot level of the big
shaft, more than 200 feet below the
water level, where a body of ore of
unknown dimensions was encountered,
is yielding values in excess of the
management's fondest anticipations.
Coming in contact with sur-.h an im
mense body of ore, and that, too. at
such a great depth tlow the water
level, has an important bearing upon
the immediate and future possibili
ties of the Tombstone district. It is
a clear demonstration ol the fact that
as depth is attained in a correspond
ing ratio will mineral bodies of greater
