COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country'of local in terest solicited. When Hon. W. J Bryan ad dressed the citizens of Winslow at the Opera House, on his re turn from his western tour, and after W. H. Burbage, National Committeeman, had introduced him in a few well chosen sen tences, Mr. Bryan opened his address with these remarks: “I had no intention of stopping at any place in Arizona, other than Phoenix and Prescott, but out of regard to Mr. Burbage, your Na tional Committeeman, I was prevailed upon by him to stop and say a few words to the citi zens of his home. ” Our citizens should remember this instance of forethought and good will on the part of Mr. Burbage and no doubt they will. He never over looks an opportunity to further the interests of northern Ari zona and Navajo county espe cially. He has been heard by the writer to regret that Flag staff and Williams could not have had the same opportunity as Winslow to hear Mr. Bryan, but owing to Winslow being a terminal point and eating sta tion, a lay over for our distin guished guest was more conve nient here, and the other towns mentioned were not slighted in this respect, through any dis courtesy. The Mail recommends Mr. Burbage to the delegates to the National Democratic Convention as National Committeeman for the ensuing term. He has filled the position in the past, both with honor and credit to the democratic party in Arizona. He has at all times been ready and willing to drop his private business, and give his time and means for the good of the party. For nearly twenty years he has lived in northern Arizona, and during that entire time be has been an active and earnest work er for the cause of democracy, without any hope of reward save the success of the principles ad vocated by the party. He is not an aspirant for any position within the gift of the national executive. There is no appoin tive position accredited to Ari zona that he seeks or would ac cept, therefore The Mail thinks that, inconsideration of his past earnest, unselfish and disinter ested labors for the cause of de mocracy, it is the least the par ty can do to honor him with the only position we honestly be lieve he would accept, namely — National Democratic Commit teeman for Arizona. A New York father is said to have offered his son, $5,000, if he would stay sober for a week. Senator Proctor, a republican, makes the following comparison between the actions of George 111 toward the American colo nies, which precipitated the rev olutionary war, and the policy which is being pursued by Wil liam I in regard to our Puerto Rican colony: “Mark the resem blance in the proposition of George 111 to tax the colonies and our own Puerto Rico tariff bill. The duties in each case, both past and future, are to be set aside tor the benefit of the country taxed. One difference is that, while our measure taxes merchandise both going and coming from Puerto Rico, the British bill taxed only a limited number of articles coming to this country, did not tax our ex ports, and this difference is in favor of King George.” There have been half a dozen or more of the leading republi cans of Kentucky indicted for complicity in the assassination of Governor Goebel, among the number the usurping Governor, Taylor. It is scarcely possible that sucb a foul conspiracy could have been conceived and carried out without the knowl edge and consent of the princi pal beneficiary. The fact that some of those implicated had pardons for the offence on their persons when arrested, signed by Governor Taylor and issued before any charges were made, goes to show that he was cog nizant of, if not an active agent in the assassination. Senator Wellington, the lead ing republican in Maryland, has severed his connection with the republican party. In an inter view in Washington on the 20th inst. he said: “The facts are I , have been opposed to the ac quisition of the Philippines as a permanent colony. I was op posed to the 15 per cent duty on Puerto Rico imports into this country. This being my posi t tion, I do not see my way clear ■ to support the Philippine policy of the President and the policy of laying a duty on Puerto Rico . when they are embraced in a na tional platform. I do not intend to support a platform that is against my convictions in such important particulars. Ido not i intend to remain a member of i , | the National Committee, nor do ; j I intend to attend the Republi can National Convention.” ■B——————— —————— There is no needless waste of time between the opportunity to appoint a republican office-seek er and his grip on the office, says an exchange. Thus the new governor of Puerto Rico received ‘ his appointment almost before President McKinley’s sifinature was dry on the Puerto Rico bill. And the immediate attack on the new appointee by a horde of aspirants for minor offices, indi cates that the selection of the I governor was “cut and dried,” and that favored aspirants for sub-places had been advised to get their guns in position early. An exchange says: The trou ble of republican statesmanship j just now is to discover a running ' mate for McKinley who will be able to tap a “barrel” without dead-weighting the ticket. \xv Cat £.o\s ©uVa. A study of Mormonism in the current number of Gunton’s Magazine contains some curious and suggestive statistics. The membership of the Mormon church is now 360,000 having increased by 60,000 in 1899. Os this total 300,000 are in the Uni ted States, distributed as fol lows: In Utah, 225,000; Idaho, 30,000; Arizona, 10,000; Colorado 5,000; Wyoming, 3,-000; New Mexico, 2,000; Nevada, 2,000; California, 1,000; Montana, 1,000; in the eastern and southern states, about 25,000. In Mexico and Canada there are colonies of Mormons numbering about 5,000 m each of these countries. The Gazette says: The storj r circulated that the Jefferson club had paid W. J. Bryan SSOO for making his Phoenix speech is an absolute and very silly falsehood. Neither the Jeffer son club nor any other organiza tion or person paid one dollar to Col. Bryan and the republi can editors that give circulation to this yarn do not particularly honor themselves or their pa pers. Wendell Phillips struck the keynote in modern influences when he said: “Not one man in ten reads books; the newspaper is parent, school, college, pul pit, theater, example, counselor, all in one; every drop of our blood is colored by it. Let me make the newspapers and I care not who makes the religion or the laws. ” “When you shoot the gospel out of a gatling gun at men, the man that is hit does not need the gospel any more. The doctrine of destiny would make a chicken thief out of every man who hap pened to wake up near enough to a hen roost to grab one.” — Bryan. The money that is spent on a standing army in one year of a war of conquest would reclaim land enough to make homes for more American citizens than would go to the Philippines in ten thousand years.—Bryan. Caught a Dreadful Cold. Marion Kooke, manager for jT. M. Thompson, a large im porter of fine millinery at 1658 Milwaukee avenue, Chicago, says: “During the late severe weather I caught a severe cold which kept me awake at night and made me unfit to my work during the day. One of my mil liners was taking Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy for a severe cold at that time which seemed to relieve her so quickly that I bought some for myself. It acted like magic and I began to improve at once. lam now en tirely well and feel very pleased to acknowledge its merits.” For sale by W. R.

A Testimonial from Old England. “I consider Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy the best in the world for bronchitis,” says Mr. William Savory, of Warrington, England. “It has saved my wife’s life, she having been a martyr to bronchitis for over six years, being most of the time confined to her bed. She is now quite well. ” Sold by W. R. Campbell, druggist. * A Deming, N. M. dispatch of March 23 says: A Mexican, poorly clothed and hungry, ar rived in this place today, driv ing a burro before him, and when he unpacked the animal at the corral he had $16,000 worth of gold in nuggets, and about 80 pounds of the richest gold quartz ever seen in the territory. He refused to tell where he got the rock, but it is known he come from the Sierra Madres. The Mexican consulate, which has been in existance in Phoenix for several years, has been ordered closed and the archives and other belongings to be taken to Tucson, which was made a consular post not long ago. Senor Navarro, the consul, has gone to the City of Mexico pend ing the actual removal of the consulate to Tucson. —Arizona Republican.

I j QUICK RELIEF FROM PAIN. 1 J All who use Chamberlain’s j Pain Balm for rheumatism are delighted with the quick relief from pain which it affords. When speaking of this Mr. D. N. Sinks of Troy, Ohio, says: “Sometime ago I had a severe attack of rheumatism in my arm and shoul der. I tried numerous remedies but got no relief until I was re commended by Messrs. Geo. F. Parsons & Co., druggists of this place, to try Chamberlain’s Pain Balm. They recommended it so i highly that I bought a bottle. I was soon relieved of all pain. I have since recommended this liniment to many of my friends, who agree with me that it is the best remedy for muscular rheu matism in the market.” For sale by W. R.

When one thinks of the rich galaxy of mines, such as the Congress, Pearce, United Verde, etc., that have made the territory famous, it seems about the truth. The best of it is that the rich developments are not confined to any particular sec tion. From Chloride, White Hills, ets., in the north, a series of articles describing which, is now appearing in this paper, to the extreme south, as in the Fortuna mine below Yuma, which, with developments of some 900 feet in depth is now paying C. D. Lane and its other fortunate owners over $40,000 monthly, the story is tne same. Humbolt, the famous geologist and traveler, predicted this many years ago when he said the great minesal belt that cuts through Arizona, north and sotth for almost its entire lenght, would give to the world some of the greatest producers. This belt has already given to the world the wonderful United Verde, with its fabulous value; the Old Dominion, that sold for $2,000,000; the Copper Queen, valued high in the millions; the Pearce, that sold as a prospect for $250,000, and has produced millions, and many others. — Mining and Engineering Review. But even if we could destroy every vsetige of the laws which are the outgrowth of the im mortal document penned by Jefferson; if we could obliterate every written word that has been inspired by the idea that this is “a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, ” we could not tear from the heart of the human race the hope which the Ameri can republic has planted there. The impassioned appeal, “Give me libert or give me death.” still echoes around the world.— W. J. Bryan. One compensation for the Re* publidan majoritj r in the Senate is that no plea of party neces sity prevents the exclusion of a seat-buying Senator. — N. Y, World. NO. 17.
