COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country of local in terest solicited. 1 * | Is the president going- to send Otis more men in the face of the j statement that he needs no more? asks the Boston Post. Or has General Otis told the war department something* which Alger and McKinley are keep ing from the people? The pub lic is suspicious in this matter, and there is reason for it. The T" ’-k-- Xro .v tiinsy are not get ting the bottom facts of this Phillippine business. They are not in the confidence of their servants at Washington. The St. Louis Republic says: | That an American policy of im-! perialism and conquest in the j far east is likely to reach an ap palling cost financially, as well as in its inevitable sacrifice of American blood and principle, is ! indicated in the official treasury figures showing that the effort to restore and maintain order in the Phillippines has been con tinued thus far at an average daily expenditure of SBOO,OOO. It will be well for the people of the United States to ponder a bit over this exhibit. A recent special dispatch to the New York World says: “The president is determined to con- I tinue to enforce the censorship j of private and press dispatches at Manilla. Within a few days he has intimated forcibly to General Corbin that too much information is being made pub lic from the war department. Newspaper correspondents are forbidden by General Otis to file press report/s from Hong Kong, | and are warned that if they evade censorship by this method their usefulness to their papers will cease immediately. ” The longer the war continues, the more there seems to be that re quires covering up to keep from the knowledge of the American people. The attempt of an imperialis tic clique in the faculty’ of the Chicago university to muzzle ; members who think j and to restrict the public utter- j ance of the professors generally j has been defeated. This is well, j Isays the Spring-field (Mass.) Re- j publican. Think of a proposi tion to gag the college professor as a citizen. The next logical! step would be to stop the mouths of all educated men on public questions and hand the issues I over to the ignorant for discus ! sion and settlement. And there ; ! are professors in the Chicago j university who suggest and sup * pori such a. proposal. i I A dispatch from Washington I that “President McKinley i is working energetically upon a j plan to submit the question of independence or annexation to I the people of Cuba.” The Los Angeles Herald adds: We should like to know how that matter concerns either President Mc- Kinley or the United States at the present time. The most solemn pledges were given to Cuba in the face of the whole world that onr purpose in es pousing her cause was solely to | release her from the thraldom of Spain and set her on her feet, free and independent. When |we shall have redeemed these I pledges we may hail Cuba as a j sister if she desires annexation. | But that decision she can make without the political machinery of the republican party, engi-' neered by its Hannas and Platts : and Quays. Judicial Prophecy. In a dissenting opinion deliv ' d 1 y " .-licp Harlan of .the! United States supreme court a few years ago in the celebrated . sug-ar trust case, he used the fol lowing language: | “We have before us the case of a combination which abso ; lutely controls, or may at its I discretion control, the price of all the refined sugar of the coun try. Suppose another combina tion, organized for gain and to j control prices, should obtain possession of all the great flour ! mills in the United States; an other of all the oil territory; another of all the salt producing regions; another of all the great establishments for slaughtering animals and the preparation of meat—what power is competent to protect the people of the Uni | ted States against such dangers, except the national power?—one that is capable of exerting sov ereign authority throughout ; ever\ r part of the territory and over all the people of the Na tion?” The hypothetical, case put by Justice Harlan and the hundred more like them have actually arisen, yet Attorney General Griggs says the government is j poyverless to do anything with | ! them, and that the states only \ have jurisdiction, says the Los j Angeles Herald. Mr. Griggs is a New Jersey lawyer, and it yvould be instructive for him to : express an opinion as to what ! action he expects his state yvill take in regard to trnsts. I The \’iew that the general gov ernment is powerless is doubt ! less based upon the indisposi tion of the present federal au ; tliorities to find and execute any i power to avert the dangers to: which Justice Harlan alludes. Though trusts have settled upon the country like a swarm of lo custs. the administration is as ! silent on the subject as an Egyp tian mummy. It has time to' i devote to the discovery and ex- j I ertion of federal power for the | subjugation of the people of; distant islands, but it has none ; to devote to devising means for | the protection of the people at ; home against the rapacit}’ of combinations formed for plun j der. * It. its ll ii old uiin c i 1 o St&Acs vcv. Cav Lets 6n.V^. man's ethics and opinions are I too often inlluenced by his sur j roundings. James Buchanan could discover no power to sup press insurrection against the government, and the law offices of McKinley’s goymrnment can find no power to suppress com binations which menace the lib erty and prosperity of the peo ple. THE ALUM BAKINGf POWDERS. Names of Some of the Principal Brands Sold in this Vicinity. The recent discussion in the papers of the effect upon the human system of food made with alum baking poyvders and the opinions that have been publish ed from noted scientists to the effect that such powders render the food umvholesome, have caused numerous inquiries for names of the various alum poyv ders. The following list of baking powders containing alum is made up from the reports of State Chemist Nicholson of Ne oraska, tile City Chemist or St. Louis, the Food Commission of Minnesota., or other reliable au thority : Baking Powders Containing Alum. K. C Contains Alum Jaques Mfg. Co., Chicago, BON BON Contains Alum Grant Chemical Co., Chicago. HOME _ Contains Alum Home Baking Powder Co., S. Francisco PERFECT Contains Alum Perfect Baking Powder Co., St. Louis. CLOVER LEAF Contains Alum Pacific Mfg. Co., Los Angeles. CALUMET Contains Alum Calumet Baking Powder Co., Chicago. In addition to these, it is un derstood that many grocers are selling what they call their own private or special brands. These poyvders are put up for the gro cer and his name put upon the label by manufacturers of alum powders in Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Salt Lake, San Francisco and elsewhere. The manufacturers it is said, find their efforts to market their goods in this w r ay greatly aided by the ambition of the grocer to sell a powder yvith his oyvn name upon the label, especially when the grocer can make an abnor mal profit upon it. Many gro- I cers, doubtless, do not know 7 that the powders they are thus push | ing are alum powders which yvould be actually contraband in many sections if sold without disguise. It is quite impossible to give the names of all the alum bak ing poyvders in the market. They are constant^ 7 appearing in all sorts of disguises, under all kinds of cognomens, and at all kinds of prices, ey 7 en so loyv as five and ten cents a pound. They’ 1 can be ay’oided, hoyvey r er, b} 7 the housekeeper who yvill bear in mind that all baking poyvders sold at twenty-five cents or less per pound are liable to contain alum, as pure creaffi of tartar baking- powders cannot be pro | duced at anyth ing* like this price. The Arizona Republican is au thority for the statement that evidence has been discovered I I showing that Echols sentenced in 1898 to ten years’ imprison ment for stage robbery, commit ted near Prescott, is an inno- , cent man. A man recently sent ’to Yuma, has confessed to the -: robber}'. This man went to I Echol’s cabin, borrowed his I shoes and rifle and tore off cloth ;to make a mask and then went i out. held up the stage and re turned the rifle and shoes to the cabin. The trailers trailed the shoes to the cabin, found them there, also the cloth from which the mask was torn, and Echols was convicted. Duty of a Newspaper. It has been charged that coun try newspapers are bootlickers on the money side of the ques tion; that they are afraid to con demn a wrong; that it is the duty of a newspaper to expose every thing that is not exactly right and proper, says an exchange. A man engages in the new'spaper business to make a living just like any one else in any other ! business. It is not the duty of a ’ newspaper man to ferret out any [ mean or contemptible act. any more than it is tile duty of a citi zen. The citizens of a commun ity are responsible for the im morality of a town, for dishon est elections, for the breaking of the law; not the newspaper. How many business men are there in a town who will con . demn a w'rong-doer, when they . know it will injure them? And t yet that is what some people ex > pect them to do. The trouble is . the (so called) honorable people . of a community haven’t the mor • al courage to stand up for the . right. A majority of them, if • they endorse an article con . demning the wickedness of some scion, will come around to the ■ editor in private and tell him he ; : has done right, yet w T hen it f! comes to talking it on the street ! and elsewhere their nerve fails ! them, and the Suitor is left to : | fight the battle alone. If you . have any grievance to make do it publicly. If a newspaper at tempts a reform that you know is right and will result in a ben t efit to the town, give him your i support publicly. Don’t sit back i and say a newspaper man hasn’t > the courage to say what’s Avrong i until you yourself can rise above ' the almighty dollar and take your stand for truth and honesty i It is the individual and not the ’■ | newspaper that hasn’t the moral -1 courage. Newspapers reflect i the wishes of- the people, and i are the result-of existing condi i tions which must be changed, if - at all, by individual effort. A , 0 i Florence Packard, the lion , killer of Gila county, v/as a lit i tie surprised one day last w 7 eek, ' and ran up against a bear in -1 stead of a lion. His dogs got • onto a fresh lion trail and had l not gone far before a bear was > started in a brush ticket and - forced out. Mr. Packard fired 1 a 22 ball into the animal, which • I only enraged the bear and caused • | it to chase the hunter at a lively • I rate, and had it not been for the dogs biting the bear’s heels, our i lion killer Avould be no more. Mr. Packard says that hereafter j :j he will carry a heavier gun. | The 22 is all right for hunting ■ | lions, but w’hen a bear gets after you that weighs a ton it is bet ter to have a big piece of lead. ! Globe Times. A thrilling incident occurred at the Rosemont mine a few days i ago. A group of men were stand ring engaged in conversation when a peal of lightning struck at that point, killing a Mexican j and his team of horses, and j bringing every one dumb found-1 ed to the ground. All, however, revived except the poor Mexi can aad his horses. This w r ould I not be considered a very remark able event east of the Rocky mountains, but for Arizona it is a rare occurrence.- —Citizen. About all that can be said of the treasury showing at the end of the .fiscal year is that it is not i quitP'so bad as it might have: been.—Cincinnati Enquirer. t SUBSCRIBE FOR | | The Winslow Mail J -f Devoted to the Interests of $ and Navajo County.

One night recent ly, four men Avent to the hovel where she lh r ed with her hus band, and one of them threaten ed the man with a machete, Avhile the other three took the woman out into the brush and there hacked her to pieces, her body showing 23 wounds.

Why blame Alger for assum ing that he could stay in the cabinet and run for senator, ha\ r ing for a partner in that race a fellow 7 AA r ho slaps the president in the face daily? Hasn’t Mr. McKinley’s toleration of Alger ism authorized the exponent of that ‘ ‘ism ’ ’ to hold that he might kick his presidency down the stairs and out on to Se\ r enteeth street, in front of the war office, and still be a member of the cab inet “in good standing.”—Chat tanooga Times. George Mitchell, of the Cobre Grande Mining company, of Mexico, is one of the fortunate mining men of the west. Six months ago he was an employe of the United Verde Copper Co., at Jerome, as head smelter. To day he could realize $1,000,000 or more on his holdings of stock in the Cobre Grande company, which is taking ont over $4,000 worth of copper per day. — Phoe nix Herald. Ehrenberg, on the Arizona side of the Colorado river, about sixty miles in an air line from Yuma, is looking up brightly. Rich dry placers have been dis covered and a large, energetic camp has been established. Over $2,000,000 AA T as taken from the placers of this section some 25 or 30 years ago, and as much more will be taken out in the near future. —Prospector.
