The flowers that bloom in tho spring avo the "bloomers." There is no land beneath tho sun that can surpass Arizona in refreshing balmy brcezos during tho midsummer months. Tin: Democrats of "Old are to havo a Stato convention shortly to express thomsolves upon tho coinage question. in Some of tho eastern "nabobs" -who look with disfavor upon tho admission of this Territory to Statehood, oughtito bo out umong us on Independence day, and just seo Arizona "turn horsolf looso." i Eepresentative Pish, of Thatch- ".Xor, introduced tho Classification Bill, and it had both his and Mr. Skinner's faithful support. It was n most popular measuro and Old ! Graham got to tho front. .Now com.Qs tbo news of tho ar- rest of of tho Idaho land ofllce and a number of others J for complicity in Chineso smuggling, by tho illegal issuing of istration certificates. A gigantic conspiracy fs revealed. hi TnE war in Cuba between Cubans and Spain is again on, rod- hot. A few days ago tho Cuban insurgents captured tho town of San Goronimo, compollcd tho Span- "ash to surrender, and reduced tho iown to ashes in a few hours. A fiiUi. decision upon tho Classification Law will bo rondorod by 'tho Supremo Court, now in session at Prcscott. District Attorno'y Jones is now in attendance boforo - lir Sunrome Court in sunnort of tho law. Prop. Huxley, tho English scientist is dead. Those acquainted -with the stovy of his life and labors will regret that ho has passed "over tho divide," and will over re member him as ono of tho great men who havo mado tho world bother by living in it. The coroner at Los Angeles, upon complaint being mado to him, investigated matters a few days ago and found a man livinc near there who had kept tho remains of his child for a poriod of five years. The littlo coffin was concealed under tho porch of tho residenco and contained only tho skeleton. Judge Rois, of California, has ft decision in tho caso of the government against tho Stan ford estate for tho indebtedness of the Central Pacific railroad. Tho Bciion holds that tho individual stockholders aro not liable for tho debts of that corporation, henco tho Stanford estate cannot bo reached. The Southorn Pacific has again ."been held up iu Oregon and relieved of 825,000. Tho job was dono by a lono man inside with a revolver and a sack to hold tho -valuables, while two companions outside with dynamite caps occasionally exploding kept the passengers and train men undor constart fear of being blown skyward.

Whitnoy also has something to say in relation to tho same. This leads us to enquiro what is sound money. Tho gold dollar is not an honest dollar; it is not sound money says tho American. As shown by the averago prices of commodities given in tho proceeding editorial tho gold dollar was worth 80 per cent moro in 1890-91 than in 1870-78, and on Juno 1, 1894, this honest dollar was worth OG per cent more than in 1873. In 1890-91 tho silver dollar, as bullion, -was worth 1 por cent moro than in 1870-73, and on Juno 1, 1891, it was worth, not in America whoro it is gold, or in India whoro it is treated as merchandise, but in China, exactly as much as in 1873. At Shanghai on December 31, 1894, tho gold dollar was worth 105 por cent moro than in 1873, would buy moro than twico as much as it would twenty jears before. Tho silver dollar would buy 3 per cent less. THE GOLD DOLLAR WORTH 1870-78, $1.00 Now York 1890-91, 1.30 " Juno 1, 1891, LOG " Dec. 31 1894, 2.05 Shanghai OR THE SILVER DOLLAR WORTH 1870-73, LOO New York 1890-91, 1.01 " Juno 1,1894, ( .771-2 " 1.00 Shanghai Dec. 81,1891, .97 " Tho gold dollar had appreciated by Juno 1, 1891. GG per cent measured in commodities produced by gold-using countries, Dec. 81, 105 per cont measured in commodities produced by silver-using nations. Tho silver dollar had depreciated by Juno 1, 1891, 22 per cent measured in commodities produced by gold-using countries. 8 por cent measured by commodities in countries. It is no longer a 50-cent silver dollar and a gold dollar, but a silver dollar and a 200-cent gold dollar. "Which is tho sounder monoy? Silver depreciated 3 per cont or gold appreciated 105? Hcstoro silver lo its placo as monoy and then wo will havo a gold dollar as sound as tho silver dollar. Then both dollars will bo sound, not before The San Erancisco Chronicle says Tho Now York bankers who freely admit that a syndicato has so successfully cornered tho available gold supply of the world that the "United States treasury is at its mercy havo framed tho strongest possiblo indictment against tho singlo gold standard. After read ing their viows, sensible men can not help concluding that a system which favors tho corner ing of redemption monoy must be vicious in tho oxtromo. Assuming that tho transaction was all right and in tho interest of tho Amccican treasury, which may or may not bo so, it is at any rate a frightful indication of tho fact that tho most powerful government of tho world aro at tho mercy of tho monoy power so long as government finances aro based upon tho restricted stock of gold which is hold and controlled by tho great bankers. There will bo no safety for tho governments of the western world until tho power of tho gold ring is dcstioyed or neutralized by the restoration of bimetallism. An American vessel arriving at Pugct Sound, brings tho intolli genco of warlike be ing mado bj' tho Eussian govern' ment at hor main racinc sea port, tho present terminus of tho Siborian railway: Eighty thous and Eussian troops aro said to bo marshaling at that point with a viowof subjugating Japan, and ac quiring a portion of tko territory recently wrested by Japan from China, that tho real terminus of tho railway may bo nt some point on tho yellow sea.

The San Francisco Call regards tho defeat of tho Whiskey trust in Illinois as a great victory. It rejoices to think that after thirty years of rapid growth theso commercial monsters reached n turn in tho road. That is what tho trusts feared when they heard from tho Democratic landslide of 1892. Tho Call says: In declaring tho whiskey trust to bo an illegal and banoful institution, and in ordering thorcforo that its character bo revoked, tho Supremo Com t of Illinois has destroyed ono of tho most corrupt institutions to which this country has ever given birth. Tho organization of tho trust was on tho bas. is of leasing all tho leading distill eries and operating them under ono management. Tho profits which it has secured under this arrangement havo been onormousi but this is a matter of small impor tance compared with the ing of courts and legislative bodies to which it has resorted in tho maintenance of the gigantic oply. When tho attack was first made upon tho trust it sought to evade tho issues raised against it by re organizing on a different plan, of which a comprehensive corporation was" tho contral idea. Even this ruso did not suffice to blind tho Supremo Court to its real intention, and it has been destroyed on tho broad ground that it was conducted in lestraint of trade. There being no ground upon which it can appeal to the Supremo Court of the United States it is dead boyond all hope. Ofcoursothis decision is mado by tho Supreme Court of only ono stato, but that is sufficient to de stroy this malignant institution. As Illinois is tho homo of other gigantic trusts, including tho Pullman Company, this decision breaks ground for others that will affect interests as great as thoso represented by tho whiskey trust, and will havo a further value as serving as a precedent for other Stato courts. All thoso who had becomo disheartened at the seeming invlnoiblo power of trusts and corporations may now tako courago and cherish a hope for better days. It is impossible that tho principal rep resented by trusts can Ihrivo for ever in this country, and tho sooner tho issuo is fought out m tho Stato courts tho better. A movement is on foot to solidato tho Northern Pacific tho Great Northorn Eailroads and operate them jointly under ono management, with James J. Hill of tho Great Northern," as Presi dent of tho "combine." This aggregation of capital will exceed by ilxr ono hundred million of dollars. It is such combines, monoplies and trusts that make tho people of the land feel a deep restlessness under tho belief that our very government is largely administered in the interest principally of the capital istic classes. About two weeks ago, Lillian Eussel tho actress, discarded her botrothed, Henry Jones, for a rail road man, sending a telegram to Jones as follows: "Henry, dear, youdowiito so beautifully, but you can't writo railroad passes, binco then tne lair ijiine lias ap peared in bloomers on a bicycle. Lillio knows tho trick of advertis ing, to a dot. "She's a Lil," and no mistake. The Fourth of July parade of tho patriotic societies of Boston and vicinity at East Boston ended in a pitched batllo between some of the paradors and tho spectators, in which sticks, stones and revolvers were used with fatal effect. Two men were killed and several others wore severely injured. The police finally restored order and arrested thoso supposed to havo done tho killing. in The policy of tho Guardian is to give duo credit to papers from which wo tako items ofnews. The article in last weok's paper under tho head of "That Libel Suit" should havo been credited to the Gazette but through an oversight in correcting the proof it was ommitted. Mrs. Carlisle, wife of the Secretary of tho Treasury, has appeared in public on a byciclo dressed in bloomers two to ono thero won't bo a skirt leffin tho United Stales within a year. iTho now woman is hero and come' to wear the pants inn Jferi' ' I SENATOR VOORHEE'S VIEWS Silver nnd Gold Torccn llroko Even A Splendid Ticket. Senator Voorheeso being asked his opinion of tho result of tho Democratic convention in Ken-lucky said: Tho result of this convention reminds mo of an expression wo had when I was a boy in describing tho wrestling match. When neither paity got much, if over tho other, it was called a "dog fall." At Louisville ono party nominated tho tickot and tho other mado tho platform, and Ihoy came out about oven, with bimetallism, in tho abstract, on top. Tho ticket is a splendid one, with tho gifted and eloquent General Hardin up for Govornor, a friend of silver monoy, while tho platform is simply a reassertion of the bimetallic Chicago platform of 1892, which is full of silver and gold both, and was indorsed by tho American people three years ago in an overwhelming manner. This platform did not mean gold monomotallssm in 1892, and docs not jnean it now. The endorsement of Mr. Clevo land and his administration said the Senator, "was a most natural thing in a Democratic convention, and tho indorsement of John G. Carlisle anywhoro in Ken tucky was a foregone comclusion whether all his viows were concurred in or not. Thero is nothing in tho work of tho Louisvillo convention which calls for or justifies a spirit of boasting, or of triumph amongst its members over each other. The situation invites, and, indeed commands, harmony and peace in tho ranks of Democracy, ana a united and aggressivo light against tho common enemy. I predict a galaint campaign and a brilj liant victory for tho Democratic cause in Kentucky in tho coming August election. "I have noithor fear nor discouragement for tho fato of silver in tho United States. Tho American people, in their own way, and with many a sober second thought, will tako full and proper care of that great question. Thero are over five hundred millions of silver now in circulation in this couutry, as much honor as gold, and thero will never bo less. Dem. ocrats havo no need to quarrel with ono anotocr on this or any other question. Freedom of opinion in our ranks does not necessarily mean a free fight." M.AY BAIX. Tho crowd was gathering thick and fast As from the outsido insido passed A man who stood up, strong and proud, And in a bravo voico shouted loud, "Play ball 1" His brow was sad: his oyo beneath Flashed like a falchion from its sheath, And like a silver clarion rung The accents of that well-known tongue "Ono strike!" In many an eye ho saw a light That warned him how to shape tho fight; Beyond tho spectral bleachers shone, And from his lips escaped a groan: "Ono ball 1" "Let up on that!" ono bleacher said; Another yelled: "We'll punch your head!" And forty yelled: "Go soak your hide!" And loud that clarion voice replied "Two balls!" "Oh, staj'." a small boy guyed, "and lest Your weary head upon this breast." A tear stood in his bright bluo eye As now ho answered with a sigh, "Two strikes!" "Beware tho pine tree's withered branch" "Beware the awful avalanche!" These wero the grand stand's woids and he Braced up and shouted lustily: "Thro strikes and out!" " " tho bleachers yell, " H 11!" 1 1 1 J t B- JS slam t T t If If !!!!!!!!! There at the homo plate, cold and gray, Lifeless, but beautiful, he lay, And from tho sky, serene and far, A voice fell hki a falling star, "Next!" C0C0PAH AGAIN IN ERUPTION Dense ltlack Smoke Ismiing Fiom the Central Teak. The Cocopah volcanoes arc agaiu in a state ol eruption. The central peak of three volcanoes is emitting a column of dense black smoke. The Cocopah volcanoes aro twenty miles southeast of Signal mountain in California, south of San Dio-go and Yuma trail, and near tho mouth of Now river. About ten days ago thero was quite a severe earthquake in that locality, followed by sepulchural rumbling noises in tho earth. Later it was noticed that gas was escaping through fissures in tho earth, and still later smoke was seen about tho summit ?f tho volcanoes, and soon after a (jenso black column shot into the lir. yeiihoono has becnnear tho eruption in do The F armers .
