While Turkey is said to be bankrupt, •the Sultan is believed to be the richest man in Europe. , The basis of South Carolina rice, the finest in the world, was a pocketful which Jefferson brought from Italy. The King of Greece, when conversing with the members of his family, never employs any but the English language. He seldom speaks French, and only uses Greek when compelled to do so. , In the formation of a single locomo tive steam engine there are nearly 6,000 pieces to be put together, and these require to be as accurately ad justed as the works of a watch. An eastern statistician estimates that 100,000 people own half of this coun try’s wealth, and that four per cent, of the people possess 75 per cent of the entire property of the country. \ ‘ _ A law passed at the recent session of | the Alabama legislature, levying a li- I cense tax on the capital stock of all I corporations except banks, has been ! pronounced unconstitutional by the ; supreme court of the state. Estimates place the tobacco crop of Florida this year as the largest in the history of that state. It will be worth i several hundred thousand dollars. : Much of the planting was experiment al, but no report of failure has yet | come In. A correspondent of a New York pa per says that before he left Havana, a j prominent Spanish banker assured me that since Weyier’s arrival in Cuba as | captain general the latter had remitted ; the sum of $7,003,356 to London and Paris for his private account. In the entire city of New York, ac cording to the census of 1890, the Irisu 1 formed 29.76 per cent of the foreign born, the Germans 32.93, while the Bus* i sians, Poles and Hungarians, among i whom the principal Hebrew population ; is found, formed respectively 7.62 per 1 cent, 1 91 and 1.06 per cent.

Judging from the appearance of the paper, we should say that neither of the publishers were printers. We i do not like tfi discourage any enter- X prise calculated to advance the inter r ests of the territory, but we warn the . publishers of The Trailer that Graham i county has two good papers already established, and there is hardly room for three, but we hope they may make ■ 1 a ten-strike with The Trailer. ‘ i The Rev. Dr. W. F. Anderson, in a ‘ i rfiemorial sermon recently delivered in I New York city, used the following lan guage: “Our United States Senate has t I so degenerated that it has become a • travesty on good government. Unless £ it speedily changes its policy it will j become a stench in the nostrils of: American citizens. That we are facing j | *5. serious condition of affairs iu the! f United States no intelligent man will - question. The impression is almost 1 universal that we are on the eve of a i great crisis in our American national 3 i life.” - •. . ■ i “We were told last fall that an appre f ciating dollar was a national blessing, I ? ! and yet within a year the entire Repub- j , I lican press is in ectasy because the pur-1 ; chasing power of the dollar has been to . : some extent decreased.

Ha believes that mountains : - can be radiographed by the X-rays and g gold located without the trouble of ex a j eavation; that such mining is possible r 1 though ris yet only to a limited extent. |He say 3 that Roentgen rays are with ■ out limit as to length and radiography. 3 '• They are limited now because of one s ! almost toy apparatus for producing e ' them. „He thinks that it is only a qnes- I 111 tion of tubes and currents, and at any 1 o moment a-wav may be found for pro ducing rays that will penetrate hills and mountains; perhaps the earth it self. A noted metallurgist bas a ra diograph of quartz with gold embedded in the center and concealed from the naked eye. He believes that much la bor can be saved and a great deal more gold mined by this means. Since the adjournment of the lost legislature, therb have been twenty seven notices of intention to build rail roads filed with the Secretary of the Territory. As work must soon com mence on these roads, in order to se cure the benefit, of the fifteen years ex emption taxation, there ought to ,be an immense amount of railroad | building done during the coming year. Bat there is a vast difference between i filing notice of intention to build and building a railroad. But should all the roads be built, Arizona will bo grid j ironed with railroads, and a man can ‘ step from his door onto a railroad train and go to any part of the territory. The relations between this country and Spain is represented to be strained to its utmost tension. If reports are true that Minister Woodford carried an ultimatum from this government to the Court of Spain, and it has been delivered, Uncle Sam may have placed himself in such ah attitude that be may to fight Spain, Austria. Japan and possibly Germany, or make an inglo rious retreat. The Spanish people are at fever heat end clamoring for war. Austria has almost said in so many words that she would aid Spain. The leading German and French papers are earnestly protesting against any inter ference on the part of the United States in Cuba matters, while Japan is quietly making preparations to seize the Ha waiian Islands, in case we get into trou ble with Spain. In the meantime Sec " , retary Roosevelt is putting our navy on a war footing. There may be lots j of fun, mixed with a good many hard : knocks, ahead for Uncle Sam. I _— Lincoln as a Prophet * Near the close of the war, in reply to a letter from a friend in Illinois, Presi dent Lincoln said: j “Yes, we may all congratulate our ! selves that this cruel war is nearing its j close. It fyis cost a vast amount of treasure and' blood. The best blood of the flower of American youth has been I freely offered upon our country's altar ' that the nation might live. It has been indeed a trying hour for the republic; but I see in the near future a crisis ap ! proaching that unnerves me; I tremble ! for the safety of my country. “As a result of thg war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of cor ruption in high places will follow, and . | the money power of the country will ■ endeavor to prolong its reign by work ; ing upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few i hands snd the republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever be- j fore, even in the midst of war.

An Ohio contemporary thoughtlessly ; remarked that it takes money to run a newspaper, whereupon the editor of the Seguache (Colo.) Herald rolls up his sleeves, spits on his hands and promptly nails the lie as follows: “It doesn’t take money to run a news paper; it can be run without money. It is a charitable institution, a begging concern, a highway robber, B’Godfrey. The newspaper is the child of the air, a creature of a dream. It can go on and on and on, when any other concern would be in the hands of a receiver and wound up with cobwebs in the window. It takes gall to run a newspaper. It takes a scintillating, acrobatic imagina tion, a half dozen white shirts, and a railroad pass to run a nowspaper. But money—Heavens to Betsy and six hands around, who ever needed money in con ducting a newspaper? . “Kind words are thß medium of ex- * change that do the business for the ed- : itor —kind words and church social tickets. When you see an editor with money, watch him. He’ll be paying bills and disgracing his profession. Never give money to an editor. Make him trade it out. He likes to swap. Then when you die, after having stood around for years and sneered at the editor and his little jim crow paper, be sure and have your wife send in for three extra copies by one of your weep ing children, and when she reads the generous and touching notice about you, forewarn her to neglect to send fifteen cents to the editor. It would overwhelm him. “Money is a corrupt thing. The edi tor knows it, and what he wants is your heartfelt thanks. Then he can thank the printers and then they can thank | their grocers. Bend your work to out elds places and then come and ask for half rates for church notices.” “The Lord loves the cheerful giver. He’ll take care of ail the editors. Bo not worry about the editor. Ho has a ! charter from the state to act &s a door -1 mat for the community. He’ll get the ; paper out somehow; and stand up for ' i you when yOii ?rfn for office, and lie *! about your pigeon-toed daughter’s ! lackey wedding, and blow about your ' big-footed sons when they get a $4 per | week job, and weep over your shriveled soul when it is released frona your .’rasping body, and smile at your giddy wife's second marriage. He’ll got along. The Lord alone knows how—but the editor will get there somehow.” 1 Rev. Sam Jones scorches the society women in the following language: “When God gives a man a wife and six children Ho has done a . great deal for that follow. But when 5. He gives him a society woman and a poodle He has thrown off on him. These society wo men look upon children as a nuisance. I have had some of these little old so ciety women shake hands with me. I I had as soon shake a dead fish’s tail. I ! wouldn’t give one of your old sock darning women for all the society wo men in the country. Between Cutting off the top of their dress for the ball 1 room and the bottom for the bicycle these society women will soon have no .clothes left. A man said to a society ’ woman, “I hope I’ll see more of you.’ She said, 'Come trf'fhe ball to-night.’ Some people say yon shouldn’t speak this way before mixed audiences. You ride the bicycle before mixed audiences. You old sisters wear a high collar close around your necks—that’s modest and cortiely. But deliver me from the so ciety women who button their collars around their waists. You preachers ! don’t talk that way, do you? You talk about the sweet bye and bye. You ought to talk about the nasty now and now.” We now have an opportunity to see 1 whether plutocratic corporations are to be held to the same strict rule regard ing the sacredness of law as working men. A Kansas court has ousted a Kansas railroad from certain land, on j ' the ground of forfeiture. The question j ! had been regularly tried and the deci- . sion formally made. The law, as so far determined, was clearly against the I railroad and in favor of the man who i had prosecuted the forfeiture. The latter thereupon fenced in the land in controversy. But the corporation, de fying its adversary, defying the court, 1 defying the Sheri*", has destroyed the fence, and with a hired mob taken for cible possession of the forfeited land. | Ought the corporation to have obeyed j the law, leaving its rights to be deter mined later? or was it justified in re- j sisfing the officers of the law? Here ; is an excellent occasion for “law-abid- i' irg” editorials in the plutocratic press. But none will come. In that quarter , ! officers of the law have no rights which corporations are bound to respect. T?e --i pfeysive laws are for workingmen, not | for corporations.—Cleveland Recorder. ' !

An artesian well is to be sunk. It is proposed that che entire district chip in, on the plan of a stock company, till the well shall have reached, if neces-' sary, a certain specified depth. Then, if there be no water, the community will stand the loss; if there be, the farmer on whose land the water shall have boon found shall stand the entire cost and the well shall be his. This is of course, only for the first experiment al well. Once water has been tapped it will become easy to estimate whether or not it is profitable to sink. Thd same plans should be tried in the dis trict about Phcenix. —Stockman The site for Chicago’s new $4,000,00(1 post office is a bed of mud, and the architects say piles must be sunk 103 feet to insure a stable foundation.
