FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR
The legislative apportionment has
been made by tho Secretary of the
Territory, and it conveys a sense of
mortification akin to distress. By the
Yavapai fraudulent census the vari
ous other counties havo been literally
disfranchised of representation, un
less there is sorne remedy, and there
can be none without a combination
of nearly all tho counties. There can
be no redress obtained from tho
courts, as they havo no jurisdiction
in the premises, but the Legislature
itself can act, by a reduction of the
number of representatives from Yav
apai county, and a consequent les
sening of tho evil results of fraud.
The Legislature has the power to
judge of tho qualifications of those
entitled to seats as members, and can
reject whoever may be considered as
lacking those qualifications. If the
injured counties will join together
in a determination to robuko the ono
which has insulted tho intelligence
of the people at large, and struck a
blow at the material interests of the
Territory, they cannot help but suc
ceed. It will be necessary to obtain
somo proof of the fraudulent charac
ter of tho Yavapai census, and
there is more than sufficient
timo to secure the necessary
testimony. Then, at the assem
blage of tho Legislature, it can
be readily determined how many
members Yavapai county is entitled
to, and those receiving the highest
number of votes will only be allowed
scats. We recommend, that circulars
be printed and distributed through
all the counties, urging the people
to make this matter a campaign issue
in tho coming election of members of
the Legislature; that .the respective
Boards of Supervisors communicate
with each other, as to tho best plan
of procedure; and that steps be taken
to raise tho littlo money required to
secure the testimony necessary to
prove the fraud. The problem is
easy of solution, and inaction can
only stand in the way of protection.
There is much at stake, in the fact
that the most important interests of
Arizona and her people are jeopard
ized. It is asserted that Mojave and
Apache counties must necessarily
join hands, at the dictation of Yava
pai, but it cannot be believed that
the people of those sections are so
wedded to a pride of geographical
situation as to accept dishonor as
virtue. New interests are springing
up in both those counties interests
that the press of Yavapai havo de
clared themselves hostile to and it
will be found that tho legislative
support of members other than those
of Yavapai will be needed. The
people of the whole Territory should
make common cause against an ap
portionment based upon fraud.
The Republican journals through
out the United States arc attempting
a defense of the late profligato Con
gress, and trying to shift the respon
sibility from the majority to tho
minority. This is the weakest kind
of cant. Robeson, of New Jersey,
who could not be found outside a
penitentiary in any other civilized
country in the world, led the Repub
lican majority by the nose, and was
always foremost in tho assaults on
the Treasury. Tho Democratic mi
nority, under the leadership of Ran
dall, fought spendthrift legislation
with voice and vote, and only tho
strength of the trained cohorts of
Robeson succeeded in extorting tho
millions from the Treasury. The
Republican party is responsible to
the taxpayers for the millions so
ruthlessly squandered, and the efforts
of special pleaders cannot remove
the stigma from where it properly
belongs.
Jake Henkle has received tho
nomination for Sheriff of.iravapai
county. The Dobson boom must
have suddenly -collapsed. Perhaps it
is best so. A man who has had a
taste of blood is apt to be dangerous
when clothed with the power of tho
law. Wo wish tho Democracy of
Yavapai county success.
It looks as though Arabi Pasha is
a bigger man than tho English gave
him credit for being. The result, of
course, will eventually be his com
plete subjugation, but the struggle
may last for years. A people moved
by tho fanaticism of religious belief,
are hard to whip.
The Albuquerque Morning Jour
nal reports tho New Jersey mine, as
carrying "a streak of horn silver,
about a foot and a half wide, which
