is a a an it of a 1 at their weak attempts to make light of the storm of popular indignation against the incompetency of the demo cratio party. There were exactly twenty-four democrats and four populists who voted against giving the seat in the house to which Mr. Joy was elected to Mr. O'Neill, but the eteal having bean ordered by a majority of the committee on elections, it was finally consutnated, as well as that which unseated Mr. Uil-born, of California. It took about ten days of hard work to get a voting quorum of democrats willing to commit these outrages. Mr. Joy expects to be one of the republican majority of the next house. seem The populists in the senate disposed to go it alone on the tariff bill. Some time ago Senator Peffer introduced a tariff bill of his own and gave notice that he would at the proper time move that it be substituted for a bill report ed from the finance committee, which is now before the senate. And this week Senator Allen, of Nebraska, introduced an amendment to the tariff bill which makes a general and material reduction in the duties imposed by the committee's bill, and contains a provision, for the free coinage of silver. The question of a free coinage amendment to the tariff bill is causing the administration much anxiety. It will be remembered that Senator Quay gave notice before the tariff bill passed the house of his intention to offer a free coinage amendment. Republican senators notified the democrats while Senator Allison was making bis great Breech against the tariff bill that they knew their rights and intended to maintain them during this debate, and that any expectation of railroading the bill through the senate might as well be abandoned from the start The democrats have put senator Harris, of Tennessee, in charge of the bill because of their belief that his pushing qualities exceed those possessed by Senator Voorhees, whose position as chairman cf the finance committee makes him the actual custodian of the bill. The recent elections have strengthened the determination of the republicans to fight the bill with every weapon at their command, the most of them believing that the 15,000,000 people affected by the bill will endorse any action that prevents the bill from beooming a law. THE "KE ARS ARGE" COURT MARTIAL. The trial by court martial, whieh began in the navy-yard in Brooklyn on March 23d, of Commander Oscar F. Heyerman and Lieutenant C. H. Lyman, of the navy, for negligence in causing the loss of the famous old corvette Kearsarge on Roncador reef on February 2d last, has afforded civilians an excel lent illustration of that lofty dignity and high sense of duty that prevail in judicial tribunals composed of naval or militarv officials. The last court mar tial in Brooklyn before this of a com mander of a naval vessel was held three years ago. The charge then was cruelty The charge this time ia losing the vessel that was most dear to the memory of all patriotic citizens. Naval court martial of one kind or another are frequent enough in the dismal-looking buildings in the Brooklyn yard, but probably none more interest ing than this one was ever held there. This time one finds on trial a commander universally respected, whose handsome, frank face is indicative cf his high personal character and ability as sailor; a man beloved by hi associates, superiors and inferiors, as few men in the navy have been; a man, doubtless, who would have preferred to lose his life in the honorable service of his coun try than lose this ship, of all ships on which the stars and stripes were raised Harpers Weekly. The reported contemplated removal of Governor Hughes meets with but lit tie credence outside of interested circles. The governor appears to be attending strictly to his official duties, and to those not interested in the democratic wrangle no good is seen to come to the territory tnrougn a cnange. liis successor, if he has one, under the present administration, must perforce be a dem ocrat, and, to the people, one Hughes is as good as another. That Dr. H. A Hughes would make an excellent gov ernor is not questioned, but that he could make better governor than L. C. Hughes is open to many serious ob jections. As a party man Dr. Hughes, while out of office, is more popular, but, clothe him with gubernatoral powers and as a dispenser of offices he would speedily be as unpopular as the present incumbent. There are not enough offices to go around, and there's the rub. Like Coxey's army at Pittsburg, the officers which, of course, are the gov ernor's own particular friends would be fed on the pie, while the cold privi lege of looking on would fall, as it did then, to the rank and file. WThen Zu-lick was governor the same old jangle over his appointments was made a9 now fills the territory. He proclaimed him self the democratic Moses and said to an admiring audience, "I will lead you out of the wilderness," but as he failed to deliver the goods he become the most abused man in the country. Many of his official acts were open to grave sus- icion, to say the least. This cannot be eaid of Gov. Hughes, for whatever he may have done in private life, his official actions are believed to be above reproach. By these he will undoubtedly be judged at the throne at Washington and his removal, unless we much mistake, will , come through a republican president, and not from the prtsent White House ocoupant. Interested parties must not forget that the people as a whole are not a party to the present democratic heartburnings and bicker-erings. Secretary Lamont will be called on to make an explanation which will be very difficult for him to do as toon as he returns from hid pleasant southern "inspection" tour. He made a i.roiaise in Mr. Cleveland's name, that has been violated by Mr. Cleveland. j The Etory of the transaction may be i summed up about as follows: Mr. Cleveland treated the democrats of Washingtou bo Bbabbily during his first term that wbep be was nominated in 1892 the Washington democrat flatly refused to contribute a cent to help elect him. Now the Washington democrats had in previous campaigns contributed more largely in proportion to their numbers than those of any city, so the national committee desired to have them placated, and Dan Lamont was sect here to do the placating. They told Lamont that Mr. Cleveland had filled the local offices with outsiders in his first term and they wouldn't chip in to elect him again. Whereupon Dan Lamont pledged his word in behalf of Mr. Cleveland that no one should be appointed to an office in the district of Columbia who was not a bona fide resident of the same, if the local demo crats would chip in with their usual ; liberality; butlaet week the pledge was t broken by Mr. Cleveland, who nominat ed C. H. J. Taylor, a colored Kansas democrat, to be recorder of deeds for the district of Columbia. When Secretary Lamont returns he will hear from the looal democrats. Meanwhile they , are working to prevent the confirmation of Taylor's nomination, and judging from senators' talk they 6tand a goed chance of succeeding. The captain Kelley who is cutting such a wide swath among the Industrials now stranded in Utah, left a good position as foreman of the typographical room of Hicks, Judd & Co., leading printers and book binders of San Fran-c'ibco. He also deserted a young wife and child to assume command of the motley crew which recently left San Francisco to join Coxey in his great march to Washington. Evidently he is of that class that prefers to be support ed on charity instead of his own labor. America produces through natural resources about $8,000,000,000 each year and adds to natural values an equal amount. Eight manufacturing indus tries support 1,023,467 employees and payout more money each year for wages than the combined cotton, wheat, corn and other grain crops of the country are valued at. Clapp & Co. Lasd grants are having better suc cess with the courts in New Mexico than in Arizona. The court now in session at Santa Fe heu confirmed Plaza Blanoa land grant for sixteen thousand acres, situated in Rio Arriba county The petition for the Corpus Christi land grant for . 600,000 seres in Southern Colorado was dismissed as the land of the petitioner was afterwards foand to be ia Texas. Organized idlers find no sympathy from the people of Utah. That terri tory has been built up and made great by organized industry and the so-called industrials can find no lodgment .vitbin her borders. Samoa needs a little looking after. The British are intermedling in the af fairs of the island and annexation will follow unless steps are taken to compel England to stand by the triaparte agree ment. La Grippe During the prevalence of the Grippe the past spasosn it was a noticeabl fact that thus who depend upon Dr. King's A aw iiiecovery. not only iiuu a speedy recovery, but escaped all of the trouble some after effects of the malady. This remedy seems to have a peculiar power ia enecung rapid cures not only in cases of La Grippe, but in all Diseases of Throat, Chest and Lungs, and has cured cases of Asthma and Hay Fever of long standing. Try it and be convinc ed. It wont disappoint. Free Trial Bottles at George Martin Drug Store. One of the Needs. xne courier says: "Arizona needs a paper manufacturing establishment. Excellent paper can be made from the prodigious crop of sunflower plants which cover tbe land. The Courier is prompted to these remarks by baviDg io pay aoout tau ireiznt on a snin- ment of $100 north of newspaper from Denver to Prescott. We would rather buy paper from a manufactory here in frescott and nay the factory the entire freight money: in fact we would gladly make the change on those conditions, as the money paid out would circulate at home and we would get a dollar or two of it back as it passed around." The Gazette seconds the motion. The Citizen votes aye. An TJbiqmitious Location. Miss Minnie Sawyer and Miss Helen Tolman have gone to Mineral Park to join a party who will ascend Sherums peak to locate an observatory for Harvard college. Oar Mineral Wealth. A FIGHTING WONDER. He Pats on the Gloves With Fel- low Prisoner An individual has been about the streets wearing a sweater and training shoes, and poeicg as an "awful" fighter. He has also been serving a short term in jail, and while in there had a chance to keep his hands in. Under Sheriff Proctor told him in confidence that he had a Mexican in jail he could practice on." "Say," 6aid Proctor, "you are pretty handy with the gloves, ain't you?" "Wheel" was the reply, "well. I should smile!" "Now, lookee here, we have a Mexican in there who outboxed two or three little Mexicans, and he thinks he is a ter ror. JNow, 1 want you to take the conceit out of him. I'll let bim in the yard with you, and you go at him eaey at first just to encourage him. Then, after a while, knock bim out. Let me get at the 1 I'll fix him!" was the answer. The Mexican in Question is Carlos Larrigcebel. He is really a powerful man, and fairly good with the gloves. rroctor told him the conversation with tbe wonder of the sweater and training shoes, and advised the Mexican to see first if the wonder was too much for him, and if so to withdraw. Proctor declared himself timekeeper. and locked the barred door between himself and the combatants. They drew on the gloves, the wonder confi dent and tbe Mexican grim. I he wonder began to dance. He was encouraging his man. He made a few passe?, but somehow they did not land. All at once he fell backwards fullv ten feet. He got up bleeding and muttering: "The hits hard." Then he came back and tried ta fix the Mexican, per promise. But some how he couldn't. The Mexican had a terrible side blow that would send him reeling to the right. As he came up he would be Bent reeling in the other di rection. Soon the two Bides of his face were swollen and his visage much dam aged, while the Mexican showed no damages. A final blow was too much, nd then Mr. Proctor e-lled time.
