Times Praises Work of Mark Smith Great Eastern Newspaper Tells Interesting Incidents In Congress That Prove the Ability of Arizona’s Delegate (Taken from the New York Times of June 22,190<>.) When, last Thursday, Mark Smith stung Speaker Canuou into taking the floor in bis own defense he accomplish ed something that no representative has been able to do Mark Smith is not a representative; he is a voteless delegate, admitted to the floor in handcuffs. If Arizona ever becomes a state in his lifetime, he will be a senator; at present, he occupies j the most insigniflcEut place allotted to j auybodj- in the two branches of con- > gress. For a delegate to make himself 1 beard, to achieve a high and respected position among his more fortunate colleagues, is well nigh impossible. Mark Smith, however, has avcom plished it by sheer force of character and ability, and if bis territory ever becomes a state she will enter the na tional councils with one senator whose position in the capital is already made, and her voice will out-weigh that of some eastern states—New York, for instance. When Cannon took the floor he was wild with rage, and his face was red to the top of his bald head. He had in tended to flay Smith, but as he began speaking he got cooler and realized the fatal mistake he would make iu doing so and his speech tapered off into a simple defense of himself. Smith had “got under his skin” as no previous eiritie had evei done. The savage personal attack of Shackleford bad moved him not. iu the least. John Sharp Williams’ criticisms had annoy ed him, but bad not provoked him into taking the floor. The reason for Smith’s success was the extraordinary srtistic nature of the trimming which thedele gate gave. It is in this line of attack that Smith excels, and there is no one in congress who can match him iu it. Whereas Shackleford and Williams had attacked the speaker directly, Smith never mentioned him. He did not allude to the house machine, toMr. Cannon nor to any one else. Heading through his speech, no oue uninformed about the progress of the statehood bill would see anything iu it more than a vague criticism ct persons unknown. Yet the whole thing was a withering denunciation of the speaker. That is why it was artistic. This is the sentence that lashed the speaker to ungovernable fury and made him leave the chair: “There is a law in Arizona that if oue legislator trades with another on legislation before that body he is guilty of a misdemeanor, and if the governor shall attempt in The democratic candidates for the variouscounty offices started from Holbrook Thursda}’ morn ing on a tour of the various pre eints where they will hold meet ings. The final rally will prob ably be held in the Winslow Opera House on Friday evening, Oct. 30th, when it is expected that all the candidates on the ticket will appear before the voters of Winslow. Mrs. R. T. O’Rourke returned Saturday from San Francisco where she has been for the past three weeks visiting with rela tives. that, benighted land to influence legis- [ lation by promises of veto he goes to the peniteutiHry, under the laws of the land.” That was all. Not a reference to Cannon iu it, apparently, and he had not alluded to Cannon in the preced ing part of his speech. It was all strict ly parlameutary. Yet not one of hearers has the slightest doubt about the point, which was that if Cannon had done in Arizona what he had done in Washington, he would have gone to the penitentiary. This ability of Smith’s artistic flaying has been demonstrated often enough and was demonstrated once before at this session, when the state-hood bill was jammed through the house. Taw ney of Minnesota had been one of the leading insurgents; had been in con ference with Smith, and had assured the frienes of Arizona of his undying friendship. The speaker applied the party lash to him, aud Tawney was forced into camp. Hut it whs not enough for the remorsless speaker that Towuey should vote against his friends; he must speak against them too. So Tawney had ro gel up aud deliver the best apology he could for his course, and in doing so he again repeated his protestatious of friendship for Arizona Then Mark Smith obtained the floor He walked down the floor asile until he could look directly in the face of the conscience-stricken Tawney, and said iu a voice shaking with emotion: “Aud Joab said to Amass, ‘Art thou iu health, my brother'?’ and Joab took Amesa by the hand with the right hand to kiss him.’ j “But Amasa took no heed of the I sword that was in Joab’s baud; so he | smote him therewith iu t be fifth rib and . shed out his bowels to the ground ” I Tawney spread his lingers over his face so that the frantically applauding house might not see his expression; but the deep red that dyed his face crept up to his forehead and only disappear ed at the roots of his Pair. A delegate iu congress cannot vote or make a speech except when matters come up which affect his own territory. There have been mauy delegates who have lived their lives and disappeared without leaving any record because of their lack of opportunity. Mr. Smith is an exception. He has shown great skill iu his management of the fight for Arizona. He has been back of many of the moves made by more dis tingushed statesmen. His heart is wrapped up in the cause of Arizona, aud he eats, dreams and sleeps Arizona —Bisbee Daily Review. District Attorney W. P.
