COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country Jof local in terest solicited. Major McKinley foug-ht to put down slavery in the south and is now trying- to inaug-urate it in our eastern possessions. Con sistency lias no part in our syn dicate President’s policy. The United States g-overnment has been trying- to crush out po lygamy in Utah for years. Has wished out slavery in the south. But is now trying- to reinstate both on the island of Sulu. Congress may deny polyga mous Roberts a seat on the floor of the House of Representatives for having- three wives, but Mr. McKinley is trying 1 to make an honored citizen of the Sultan of Sulu, who has 400 wives, and pay him a bonus for becoming one. The Denver Stockman says that western cattlemen are ship ping-up closer this season than ever before and fig-ure on re stocking - in the spring. That journal adds: “With all the northern rang-e states looking for cattle next spring and Mexi co and Texas shipping- their sur plus to Cuba, and Arizona send ing trainloads out to California, it looks like there would be some hustling done for stock cattle this winter. ” The following from the Flor ence Tribune is about correct: “A man was killed in Tucson last week for the reason that he wanted rent for his house and was not able to get it without a writ of ejectment. Another man was murdered in Pearce for ask ing for the return of borrowed money. It is pretty tough when a man has to be killed in order to get what belongs to him. But there is some little consolation in the fact that both the mur derers will be hanged, or ought to be at least. ” Dr. B. J. See, one of the most noted of the astronomers in the | service ot the United States gov ernment, says the shower of | Leonids has been announced a year too soon, and that next year the pyrotechnics will equal, if not surpass, the displays of 1799, 1833 and 18G6. Prof. Col bert. a Chicago astronomer, says that after next year we shall have no more meteor downfalls from the Leonid radiant and that “the famous thirty-three years will pass into history, because the path of the matter which hitherto has furnished them will have been carried outside the * earth’s orbit. ” During our revolutionary war j the British put guns and scalp | ing knives in the hands of the j savage Indians to exterminate i J the American rebels. The Eng- 1 lish agents are now inciting the j savage tribes of Africa to com bine against the small republics of South Africa, thus repeating j history.—Gazette. It isn’t worth while to look I across the Atlantic to find an in stance of history repeating it self. Compare the history of this country during the past for-! ty years with that of the Roman i Empire, and you will find a i bright and shining example at j home. There is an intimation, it may i be in the air, and is wafted by i the breezes, that a certain high ; official, scenting disaster from afar, and in order to retire from : his perilous position, without 1 | the loss of cherished control in j territorial affairs, has in contem-1 plation a resignation that may j avoid a scandalous revelation, and a disastrous termination of his political aspirations.—Ga- ! zette. Why not mention names, j The above is too sweeping. It I is a reflection on all the federal j ap2Jointees in the territory. What the platform says or what it does not say, what it means or what it dissembles. | counts for nothing alongside the ! absolute facts of the situation, says the Boston Post. The re publican party is the party of trusts. ’ These corporate mon sters have grown up under re j publican administration. Re publican tariff legislation has created them and sustains them. They live and breathe and move : through the favoring grace of i the republican party. Whatever j the republican party may say in its platforms, every one knows : what that party has done about the trusts and what it is doing to-day. That party is their fath er and their friend. Justice Brewer on Imperialism. Judge David J. Brewer, asso ciate justice of the supreme court of the United States, is a good American citizen, beside being something of a lawyer and a i thinker. Yet he comes in Teddy Roosevelt’s category of “cop-1 perheads,”„ “cowards’’and “lun- j atics.” Judge Brew T er says of ; 'imperialism in the Philippine islands and elsewhere: “This is no trifling question, and it is not answered by any gush about duty and destiny; in fact, all this talk about destiny is wearisome. We make our own destiny. We are not the victims but the masters of fate, and to attempt to unload on the Al | mighty tbe responsibility for that which we choose to do is not only an insult to Him, but to ordinary intelligence. “We are told that we have be : come so g'reat and powerful that ! the world needs us. It is not the ; touch of our power that the world needs, but the blessing of ; our example. It needs the bright : ; example of a free people, not ; disturbed b}'any illusions ofter : ritorial acquisition, of pecuniary 1 gain or military glory, but con- ) 1 tent with the abilities, activities j “ and industries of their wisest, ; and most earnest men to make Vrv C-av £»o\s GtA\^. | the life of each individual citi i zen happier, better or more con ! tent. “My friends, two visions rise i before me. One of a nation growing in population, riches and strength, reaching out the strong hand to bring within its dominion weaker and distant races and lands; holding them by force for the rapid wealth they may bring—with perhaps ! the occasional glory, success and 1 sacrifice of war —a wondrously ! luxurious life into which the for | tunate few shall enter; an ac | cummulation of magnificence j which for a time will charm and j dazzle, and then the shadow of ! the awful question whether bu | man nature lias changed and tbe old law, that history repeats it self, has lost its force; whether i the ascending splendor of impe ! rial power is to be followed by ! the descending gloom of luxury, decay and ruin. The other of a : nation where the spirit of the Pilgrim and the Huguenot re | mains the living and controling i force, affirming that the Declar i ation of Independence, the fare ; well address of the father of his country and the Monroe doc trine shall never pass into inocu ous desuetude, devoting its en ergies to the development of the inexhaustible resources of this great continental territory: solv ing the problem oi universal per sonal and political liberty, of a government by the consent of the governed, where no king, no class and no race rules, but each individual has equal voice and power in the control of all. A South American newspaper predicts that the United States government will forcibly annex the following countries in the 'years named: 1900, St. Thomas, Jamaica, Hayti and San Domin go; 1910, Martinique, Santa Lu cia, Isthmus of Panama and Central America; 1912, Mexico; 1915, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecua dor; 1929, Chili, Peru and Boli via; 1940, Argentine Republic, Uruguay and Brazil. Our South American horoscope caster for got that Uncle Sam has his eyes turned eastward just at present and will probably take a slice off China and Africa, before lie gobbles up any of the countries mentioned, They naturally be- j long to this hemisphere, and he i can take his time in throwing ] his protecting arms about them. No European power dares to undertake any conquest on this continent. Importation of cattle from Tampico to Cuba is assuming proportions, says the Two Re publics. The cattle are concen trated at that point from the states of San Luis Potosi, Ve racruz, Nevo Leon, Coahuila, | Jalisco and Chihuahua. Every steamsaip that enters the port, whether freight or passenger, ! is at once engaged to carry cat tle to Cuba. Sometimes two or three vessels are loading cattle; at the same time. This trade has been growing steadily from the day the war between the 1 United States and Spain com menced. And now a cattle' ranch, accessible to Tampico, has more than tripled its value. I Cattle are better than coffee or j rubber. —Star. | CREAM Made from Grape Cream of Tartar, and Absolutely Pure Highest award, Chicago World's Fair. Highest tests by U. S. Gov't Chemists.

It is said the company I needed 100 more experienced men. The company has start ed up its concentrating mill, having a ca.pacity of 250 tons i per day and is running full time, j The company is preparing to put in about twenty cars of new machinery during December, which includes more mills and other appliances to constitute a complete plant for reducing the ore.-—Mesa Free Press. The country between King man and Mimeral Park is now receiving the attention ot min ing investors.
