COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country of local in terest solicited. It would not be surprising' to hear that the administration had prorogued the industrial com mission, says the Cincinnati En quirer. The Philadelphia Press, which bears a strong intimacy with the president through the postmaster-general, denounced the commission as a humbug the other day. Its value as a trust bluff was much impaired when it brought from Havemeyer the observation that the tariff was the mother of trusts. Secretary Alger has at length been forced to tender his resig nation of the war portfolio. The reason given by the vice presi dent in asking for his resigna tion was that “he had formed an alliance to secure the United States senatorship with a man distasteful to the president. ” His incompetency, his furnish ing rotten meat to our brave sol diers in the field, his many dis plays of petty jealousies, per verseness and smallness cuts no figure. McKinley realizes, af ter having been told time and j again, that Alger handicapped j him too heavily for his race for; the presidency in 1900. It was that and nothing more that in ! puced McKinley to demand his resignation. Governor Pmgree, an inde pendent republican, and a man who has the nerve and manli ness to place country above par ty, and criticise the acts of the administration, comes to the de tence of Alger and. accuses Mc -■» I » i J ] Kinley of treachery and cow ardice. “Whenthieves fall out,” etc. The people may now learn some of the inside facts in re gard to appointments of incom petents to positions of responsi bility to pay political debts, let- j ting contracts for supplies, buy- j ing old hulks for transports and private yachts for cruisers at a figure much greater than the original cost. It would make interesting reading for the peo- j pie. Griggs touches nothing that he does not adorn, says the Chi cago Chronicle. Turning from the subject of trusts, which he has disposed of, Griggs calmly ! settles another question in this! wise: “The theory that there j can exist in an indefinite body j of the people the right to sub- ■ stitute their own will or a self- I constituted form of government J for the regular constituted sov- , | ereignty is contrary to reason J and to all known international; 1 practices. ” Griggs thus adjud- j icates the claim of the Filippi nos to autonomy and turns them out of court with scant cere mony. We may deem it fortu nate that Griggs, great man that he is, wasn’t born 150 years or so ago. For we may point out that the contention of Griggs is identical with that of George 111. with respect to the thirteen colonies. George agreed with Griggs that “the regularly con stituted sovereignty’ ’ should not be disturbed. The colonies, however, controverted him suc cessfully, but if Griggs had been living in those days we may well believe that his powerful intel lect, cast in the scale against rebellion, would have turned the colonies from the error of their ways and left us all happy sub jects of the British crown. George 111. doesn’t know what he missed in Griggs. Havemeyer in his testimony before the industrial commission paid a glowing tribute to capi tal and what it was doing for the country and labor in partic ular, this recalls the language of Abraham Lincoln in a mes sage to Congress in 1861. He said: Monarchy itself is sometimes hinted at as a possible refuge from the power of the people. In my present position 1 could scarcely be justified were I to omit raising a warning voice against this approach of return ing despotism. It is not needed or fitting here that a general argument should be made in fav or of popular institutions, but there is one point with its con nection not so hackneyed as most others to which I ask brief attention. It is to the effort to place capital on an equal foot ing with, if not above, labor in the structure of government. It j is assumed that labor is availa ! ble only in connection with cap ; ital, that nobody labors unless somebody else owning capital somehow, by the use of it, in duces him to labor. Labor is prior to and in front of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. La bor is the superior of capital and deserves much the higher con sideration.’’ If Mr. Lincoln then saw the approach of monarchy in the at tempt to place capital above labor, what would, he say if he Iff OOlj lion* J were alive to-day when it is an accomplished fact. What voice has labor in our government? Are not United States troops used, at the request of capital, to prevent laboring men meeting i or parading the public highway? ' Has not one Merriam, who was sent out by the government to overawe labor, said: “Organ ization of labor was a menace to | our government, and should be i broken up. ” Our government is j different now than in Lincoln’s j day. Ingratitude. Editors are said to be cynical. lls it any wonder? What other I profession meets with such con ] stant and universal ingratitude? I Through the life of what other | man does this black sin so per j sistentty drag its slimy form? I No other avocation is so full of | unselfishness, helps so many peo ' pie, builds so many fortunes, ; makes so many reputations No i Other is so given to expression wv Car £»o\s Gu\\j. '■ of kindness, sympathy and ben evolence. The editor has a word of encouragement for every work of enterprise and philanthrophy, and words of approval for every deserving public act, sending sunshine and happiness into thousands of lives. That news paper is never printed which has not something in it to help some one. Scientists, scholars, di vines, politicians, tradesmen, statesmen, by the million, owe their fame and prosperity to the editor. Nor does he help only those whom the world calls great. He is a friend to the friendless, and a constant bene factor to all classes. And his kindness stops not with the grave. His is the hand which pays the last tribute of affec tion, often to an enemy. How few manifest any appreciation of what he has done for them? His benevolence is accepted as a matter of course. How many repay him with the basest in gratitude. Is it any wonder that he is full of cynicism and even of bitterness when he thus con tinually encounters the coldness, the meanness, the emptiness of human nature. Fayetteville (Ark.) Sentinel. Economic Truths. A writer states the following controling laws in political economy, which are commended to the honest consideration of those who are seeking for truth on these lines: First—There is no such thing as intransic value. There is but one kind of value in econo mics, viz: purchasing power. Second —All money, including gold, is “fiat” money. All money is created by law, edict, “fiat” of government. Third —Demand and supply make and control all values. Fourth —Cut down the quan tity of money in circulation one half (other conditions remaining unchanged) and prices of wheat, cotton and other things as a whole will fall one-half. Fifth—Double the quantity of money in circulation (other con ditions remaining unchanged) and. prices of the people’s pro ducts will double. sum mt BUSS property without incrersing the quantity of money in circulation, and prices of the people’s pro ducts will fall one-half. Seventh —There is no such thing in reality as “50 cent dollars. ” It is not the value of the material a dollar is made of that controls its value as money; it is the fact that it is a dollar, and is legal tender, that gives it its value as money. Eighth —The man who has so much to say about 50 cent dollars are daily passing them, right now 100 cents —thus prov ing their own statements un true. These forgoing elementary principles of political economy are sanctioned by all the great writers on money for 1500 years past, and the great money len ders of Europe of today. Any body can figure from the above eight propositions whether we should restore silver and have “more money and less misery” or not. MORMON PRIESTHOOD. Its Influence is Felt in Business, in Politics and in Social Life. The priesthood can always rely on the women. They have been the strength of the church, even under that system of polyg amy which -made them “living martyrs. ” They have the full right of suffrage and none who are not in accord with the church authorities need look for their support. The men are subject to a constant discipline that keeps them at all times in sym pathy with the ambitions of the leaders. There are 1,500 Mor mon missionaries now in the for eign w T ork of the church, the brightest of its young men, the future leaders in all matters. They are compelled to sacrifice everything and to labor for two or three years far from home in the interests of their religion, 1 says the North American Re view. None who goes through this ; experience ever forgets the pow T er of the priesthood, and each ' understands that if he should ; show too great a spirit of inde ; pendence he maybe called again 1 to make the sacrifice. No young ’ man in the church may be mar i ried in one of the temples unless he is faithful and obedient to his 5 superiors, and no young woman 5 would consider herself married 1 in the sight of God unless she was “sealed” by the proper au -1 thorities. In business, in poli -1 tics, in social life, everywhere, ■ the young man meets the church, 3 and he must be of iron if he J dares to stand out against it. Many have done so in the past, but they have been the excep -1 tions. Their numbers have never been sufficient to offset the ’ church itself.—Journal-Miner, f a Wool Growers Oaganize. A committee of three wool growers from each of the coun ties of Coconino, Navajo and ? Apache met at Holbrook July 1 20, for the purpose of organiz -1 ing and incorporating a Territo f rial Wool Growers’ Association, a There w T ere present many prom inent sheep breeders beside ? those named as delegates. The 3 meeting was one of the most - harmonious and business like ever held in the territory. There seemed to be but one opinion and 1 purpose actuating each and all. > The plan of organization was readily agreed upon and articles 7 of incorporation drawm up and signed, by which the sheep graz ing districts of Arizona are or -3 ganized into one association, 5 r with two coordinate divisions, , one comprising Apache and Nav i ajo counties, and the Black Mesa Forest Reserve and sheep graz f ing districts south thereof, to be - known as the Eastern division; ) the other comprising Coconino - county and the sheep grazing districts west and south thereof, f known as the Western division. r llllOtt ll S 3 111 C HC3CCIII aitIDIOIII i A.ll present Seemed to fully , appreciate the importance and - necessity of a united effort upon the wool growers to weed out i whatever practices may be found t upon the range that threatens f the prosperity of the business f of the honest and legitimate ; wool grower upon the several , forest reserves, an earnest and 3 energetic cooperation with the government in the protection of ) such forests. All present w r ent t away highly pleased with the , result of the meeting. The Eastern Division will meet - at St. Johns on July 31, and the | Western Division will meet at r : Flagstaff on August the first to r perfect the organization, and : give all wool growers in the tes i ; pective districts an opportunity !to become members. A meeting of the general association will : be held at Flagstaff on August 2d, to adopt by-laws and take : some active steps for carrying j ’ out the objects and purposes of i 1 the association. —Coconino Sun. | SUBSCRIBE FOR | I The Winslow Mail f $ \ Devoted to the Interests of Wiaslo* $■ and Navajo County. £ A PUHC CRAPE CREAM OP TARTAR POWDER. •DR* BAKING POWDER Highest Honors, World’s Fair Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair Avoid Baking: Powders containing: ’ i alum. They are injurious to health | Climax Jim. J. C. Crowley was in town yes terday and says that Climax Jim and his partner, Coleman, were captured last week on the Chiri cahua Cattle Company’s range, when they had twenty-nine head of cattle and one horse belong ing to that company rounded up and ready to drive off. The brands on all the cattle had been mutilated. After being captured the pris oners were taken to Springer ville, handcuffed together and placed under guard for the night. When bed time came Climax asked that the handcuffs be re moved so they could undress. This was complied with. After Climax had undressed he knock ed the guard down and made his escape in his underclothing, and so far as known has not yet been recaptured. Coleman will be landed in jail at Solomonville. Climax Jim is the same Climax who escaped from the Solomon ville jail with Holladay ana Wright and is under bonds on another charge.—Guardian. He is undoubtedly the same Climax Jim who operated for a while in this section. The New York Financial News draws attention in an editorial to the very remarkable progress made in the develop ment and working of gold and other mines throughout the en tire world during the last two years. Never before, it says, has there been such general and widespread activity in mining in all parts of the world, and for all the important minerals as at the presant time. This activity is more consentrated and intense in the United States than elsewhere, but it is spread -1 ing in every region. Australia, ; Africa, China, the islands of the Pacific, Europe, South America, British North Ameri ca, Mexico, are all in the rush as well as we of the United States. It is an age of mining. It is stated that W. H. Fergu son has realized SIOO per day from the Grand Canyon copper mine which he is working. This, too, despite the fact that he has to pack the ore quite a distance and then has a. long wagon haul to the railroad..- —Journal-Miner.
