COMMUNICATIONS From the surrounding country of local in terest solicited ... mmmi. .. ... , Delegate to Congress. The Mail is sorry to see such a bitter fight between the fol lowers of Col. Wilson and Mark Smith for the nomination for delegate to congress. While The Mail favors Col. Wilson for ihe nomination it has not a word to say against Mr. Smith. Both are men of ability. Both are sound democrats. Either: would fill the position with honor to himself and credit to the territory. But Col. Wilson has introduced some meritorious measures which he should be given an opportunity to urge at the coming* session of congress. He says he has the promise of enough votes in the house toi pass the statehood bill. State-] hood is what the territory needs j and wants, There are many other bills of his, which are needed almost as badly as the statehood bill and which would be of incalcuable benefit to the territory. There is no question but Col. Wilson lias proven one of the most industrious representa tives Arizona has ever sent to Washing-ton. Return him an another two years and he will ’ be able to do a great deal for his constituents. He has proven himself honest He has proven himself industrious. He has demonstrated to the satisfaction of his friends and to the discom torture of his enemies; that he wears the collar of no corpor ation, but is the friend of the people. He deserves, and ■ should receive, a renomination at the hands of his party. The statement made by re publican newspapers that the i Boers have forwardeds3,ooo,ooo and Aguinaldo t 0,000,000 to aidi in the election of Bryan, shows what unscrupulous lies that party will resort to accomplish their ends. The Boers have a use for all the money they can raise at home, and to suppose that Aguinaldo and his follow l i ers have &5,000,000 to contrib ute to a campaign in a foreign country is too preposterous for even the most credulous to take any stock in. Caleb Powers was found guilty as an accessory before the fact of the murder of Gov. Goebel, of Kentucky, and sen tenced to life imprisonment. The jury was out only 45 min utes and was composed of seven democrats, four anti-Goebel democrats, and one populist. The evidence must have been very clear. The time is drawing near for the voters and taxpayers of Navajo county to place men in the field to assist in making laws to govern the territory, and in enforcing the law as it is found on our statutes. Sep tember Ist has been named as the day on which the democrats of Navajo will name their standard bearers for their local campaign. Every man who is ; selected as a delegate to that convention should lay aside all personal feeling and try to nom inate none but good men for the offices. Men who can command the respect and confidence of ; the people. This should be done without regard to locality. Our county is financially em barressed. We want men who are eminently business men, particularly for supervisors. ; Men who have managed their ; own affairs successfully can be trusted to manage the affairs of the county. We trust the dele gates will act with judgment in a spirit of fairness and impar tiality to every section of the j county. There should be no i bickerings, no jealousy, but every one should strive to place none but good men in nomina tion. The national democracy, says the Boston Post, takes its stand j squarely upon the Declaration ! of Independence and the consti j tution, framed in conformity i with that great instrument. The platform carries at its head the reaffirmation of these doc trines. The democracy holds that the constitution follows the flag, and that neither presi dent or congress can exercise authority beyond or in violation of the law, which gives them j existence or prescribes their powers. The democracy holds that all governments derive their just powers from the con sent ot the governed, and that 1 the denial of this doctrine in the case of Porto Rico is a dishonor to the American people. As for the Philippines, since we can not take their people into citi zenship without endangering our civilization, or hold them as subjects without imperiling our form of government, our duty is to give them independence and protection under stable rule ot j their own. Our learned diplomats say there is no war in China. If a | number of allied powers were to land troops in America, and were met, opposed by an army lof 100,000 men; several sharp I engagements ensuing in which i thousands were killed and I wounded, it would look very ! much like war, though war had 1 not been formally declared. ‘ , i - — : — : — The campaign in the Philip pine Islands has developed into a war of extermination. They ! are murdering men, women and ; children. Yet we are a civil lized people; a Christian people, | a humane people. Lovers of j justice and fair treatment. Commercialism —a modern ! term for pillage and wholesale | robbery—has a firm hold on the ! powers that be. both in this j country and England. Slaves Tbou^a\ ; UV Cat £>o\s The Hanna-McKinley combi nation at Washington have ; rushed this country into the i quicksands of eastern politics, j and they are rushing so fast i that it will require all the ; statesmanship of Wm. J. Bryan , to extricate them in the next : four years. , Civilization is returning to the , I days when might made right— j when the strong preyed on the | weak. Witness the struggle now going on in China, in the Trans vaal and in the Philippine Is lands. The difference between diplo macy and bald-faced lieing is so thin that au ordinary and every day layman is unable to tell where one begins and the other quits. ■ Where is that Prosperity Yawp? Not very long ago the repub licans w r ere all shouting in chor us that prosperity was the one battle cry, the one plank in the platform, the one thing which | would carry McKinley into the : White House for a second term by a practically unanimous vote. The sole direction to the spell binders v, T as to harp incessantly upon the prosperity string. What has come o’er the spirit of their dream? For some reason we are hearing very little about prosperity from republican quarters these days, What means it? Do the republican managers, who are at once the booty and soul of the trusts, see signs that prosperity may not be a thing to brag of before the campaign is old? So it may be. They stood ready to take all the credit if the crops should prove to be good. But it looks now as though there might not be any thing to brag of on that score. In other respects prosperity seems to be less promising as a republican issue. | The bank clearings last week ; were 33.2 per cent less than they were the corresponding week last year. The number of business fail ures is increasing, and the li abilities of failed concerns are increasing still more. The commercial agencies re port that the “vast iron indus- . try” has been “thrown from nn- j I 1 precedented activity into great j depression, with many works 1 closed and prices reduced a | quarter, ’’ while cotton arid j ‘ woolen mills are closing and production is -being restricted in various other branches. This is no matter for rejoicing ' in any quarter, and attention is | j called to it only for the purpose i of accounting for the sudden A suspension of the prosperity j ] yawp on the part of republican bosses and organs.—The Chi- cago Chronicle.

Power, of Em poria, Kan. “My neighbor across the street was sick for over a week, had two or three bottles of medicine from the doctor. He used them for three or four days without relief, then called in another doctor who treated him for some days and gave him no relief, so dis charged him. I went over to see him the next morning. He said his bowels were in a terri ble fix, that they had been run ning off so long "that it was al most bloody flux. I asked him if lie had tried Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and he said ‘No.’ I went home and brought him my bottle and gave him one dose; told him to take another dose in fifteen or twenty minutes if he did not find relief, but he took no more and was entirely cured.'’ For sale by W.

Campbell, druggist. * Mohave county voters are for Wilson for the reason that he is the only man that has gone to congress from Arizona that ever remembered that there was such a county as Mohave after he got what he wanted; they are for him because there is a railroad that traverses this county over 100 miles that is exempt from taxation under existing laws and j he is the first delegate to intro- j duce a bill in congress whereby j the railroad will be amendable j to taxation. This bill is being j iavorably considered and the j result will be about £19,000 per ■ vear for Mohave county and. j large amounts for the counties j of Coconino, Navajo and Apache. All parties should be for Wilson in the northern tier counties and democracy should j renominate him by acclamation! as he stands squarely on the j Brvan platform. The people j of Arizona want a man in con gress that works and has some- j thing to show for it. —Mineral Wealth, Kingman.

There is i no doubt in their minds that a few cattle and sheep grazing in the northern part of the terri tory has caused the present drought which extends all over . the west and has destroyed a large portion of the crop in Da. ; kota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. If the big hog of Salt river val- . ley would make a move to build reservoirs and store one-tenth : ; of the flood water running to i waste under its nose, and not 1 J trjr to irrigate a valley seventy • miles long and twenty miles ' j wide with the amount of water , | barely sfficient to irrigate twen ' ty square miles, he would be :i footing in the right direction. I I “Through the months of June - j and July our baby was teething and took a rnnning off of the | bowels and sickness of the | stomach.’’ sa3?s O. P. M. Holli day, of Deming, Ind. “His bowels would move from live to eight times a day. I had a bot tle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy l in the house and gave him four ; drops in a teaspoonful of water and he got. better at once.” Sold by W. R. Campbell, drug gist. * * Some miners at the San Simon mining camp, six miles south of Stein’s Pass, last week pros pected an old shaft which long had been abandoned. At the deptli of thirty-five feet they found a body of carbonate ore, • three teet wide. They took a sample of it which was sent to El Paso smelting works for an alysis. It was found to contain thirty per cent of copper and six and eight-tenths ounces of silver. It had fifteen per cent of iron and thirty-six per cent of silica. If the abandoned shafts of this camp carry such ore what must there be in the properties that the owners thought worth saving?—Lordsburg Liberal. “My baby was terribly sick with the diarrhoea, ’’says J. H. Doak, of Williams, Ore. “We were unable to cure him with the doctor’s assistance, and as a last resort we tried Chamber lain’s Cclic, Cholera and Diar rhoea Remedy. I happy to say gave immediate relief and a complete cure.” For sale by jW. R. Campbell, druggist. * SUMMONS. I.i the, Justice court, Winslow precinct. ' county of Navajo.
