i are fn receipt of Vol. 1, No. 2 of

the paper, we should say that neither
of the publishers were printers. We

X prise calculated to advance the inter

established, and there is hardly room
for three, but we hope they may make

‘ 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.” - •. .

“We were told last fall that an appre

1 If Professor Tesla is correct in his
11 surmises as to the extent of the power
| and usefulness of the X-rays, pros- j
1 pecting for the precious m6tals will, in 1
-1 the near future, be rendered easy and
i mother earth made to yield up all her
? i carets. 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.

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. God j
grant that ray suspicions may prove :
I groundless/

; that his suspicions were being realized, j

All For Glory.
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. '

Over in Graham county a rancher has
made a proposition to the neighborhood
that seems the most sensible thing that
has of late years been broached in the
agricultural circles of the southwest.
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.
