Late Saturday afternoon, Governor
Wollloy, acting under instructions given

mayor of Plioeniv, as tlie Republic an

The act under which these Commis
sioners are apiointed from each State
and Territory, and from the District of
Columbia, with eight at large, the
whole to select u site within the city of
Chicago for tho erection of buildings in
which to hold the WorM's Columbian
Exposition of 1SS12; to allot space for
exhibitors; prepare a classification of
exhibits; determine tho plan and scopo
of the exposition; appoint all judges
and examiners; make final awards of
premiums, and generally hae charge of
all intercourse with tho exhibitors and
with foreign nations. The Commission
is further authorized to appoint a board
of lady managers with peculiar duties
o lie assigned hereafter.
The Commission, in short, is to hao
a sort of general supervision and con
tiol of the whole aflair, making it thus
national in character, while at the
samo tune the Fair is directly run by a
company incorporated under the lawn of
tho btat'e of Illinois, for the debts and
actions of which oompanv the United
States government expressly disclaims
The Exposition buildings are to lie
dedicated on Octoler l'J, lVJL", and the
show is to lie ojiened for the reception of
visitor not later than .May I, Xb'J.i.
The Commissioners are to receive $(
jier dav for their services upon such
board, Imt are to be paid only for the
days when tliev are necessarily absent
from home in tlie discharge of their du
ties, and are to be allowed aNo their ac
tual traveling expenses.
So soon as the announcement was re
ceived here that two Commissioners
were to be apjiointed for the Territory
of Ariona, politicians large and small
at once began laying their pipes to se
cure the plums to which common ru
mor had ascribed an unusual juiciness.

peculiarly anxious to have their fences

in Fhanix, and has moreover a large
acquaintance throughout the Territory,

due honor to himself and to the
people who send him to the com
mission and will see that the interests
of Ariona are taken care of at the Ex

commissioner, h one of the largest mer
chants in the Territory and is also a
thoroughly renre-entntivo man. In the
past he has served repeatedly as chair
man of the Democratic Central com

All this occurred on Champa street

an interested observer of tho scene. The

a cavity between tho hat and tlio head

The pull of the people who favored

Dufward and Campbell, and upon these
gentlemen pressure was brought to

evidently, be withstood. Dm ward was

February 25. That did no par

A special election was called for April

sueli resignation could be-aeeepted by a

Mayor Thomas would seem to

the town of Tombstore, although not
vet disincorporated, was yet without a
city gov eminent fer; under the law,
the power of the municipal government
was vestell in tlie mayor and a board of
four councilmcn, and wiien theru were
only two councilmcn remaining no quo

The city of Tombstone, not to put too

of which amount the marshal had accu

that he was $20 short on the sum re
quired to meet tho account, but that ho
would go to a faro bank with what lie

There w as some little remonstrance,
without avail, and tho marshal went to
the bank. He did not win out. When
he quit playing, tho bank was ?80
ahead and the marshal was despondent.
Presumably his inability to draw for pay

Among the various textile products of
Irish manufacturing skill, thu most ex

Irish frie7e. Its manufacture has come
down from time immemorial. Tho
process since it was fitut woven on the
primitive hand-loom, and the subse
quent manipulation to prepare it for the
only garment for which it is pre-eminently
suited, tho cotha more (big coat

to another, until, at the present day,

manufacturing froizes which are making
their way by sheer force of real merit in

The chief features which distinguish
Irish friozo from other cloths are Hb
absolute imperviousness to rain and its
extraordinary durability. These jwintg
of excellence nre secured through the
peculiar method of manufacturing the

the curing of green hides purchased in

about here preparatory to their ship
ment direct to New York, and as a
branch of the great hoie of Hosenfeld
A Co., and under tho immediate direc
tion of Mr. A. It. Rosenthal, a partner in
the firm. On a small sc:ile at present,
just for a beginning, it is the intention
of the firm very materially to enlarge
the plant within the next few weeks,
the business here having proved largeJ
than was anticipated. Mr. Rosenthal
is established at oresent in the old elec
tric light work) building near the de
pot. Hero the hides are received and
placed at oroe in the salt vat, a large
affair capable of holding 600 green pelts,
which would require to cure them
ninety jtounds of salt each at a loss of
fifteen per cent of the salt in the curiiiz
process. The hides, at the same time,
lose tewenty per cent in weight in the
salt bath. No definite time is fixed for
the pelts to remain in the salt, although
the longer they can be kept tho better,
and shipments are made in carload lots
once every month. With present facili
ties tho firm can handle here 650 pelts
per month, and it jtractically controls
the trade of the southwest as there are
branch houses in Uenson and IIerme

owing to high lreights, it is impractica

KILLED THE INDIAN.

The little town of Tempo was the scene
of n tragedy yesterday afternoon that,
upon the face of the story as recciv eel
here, would seem to call for an investi
gation iqion the part of the authorities.
As nearly as could lie learned, for tho
details were very meagre, the affair
appears to have grown out of tho stupid
ity of an Indian and the recklessness, to
give it no milder term, of a white man,
whose name has not yet been learned.
This white man had a drove of
horses in one of the
two corrals at '

noon wem 10 me corral to
drive out the animals. When he
reached there ho found an Indian stand
mg in front of the gate and told the
reelskih to get out of the way. This was
liefore opening the gate, and when it
was opened tho man again warned the
Indian to get out of the way.
The redskin still refused to move, and
the man proceeded without paving any
more attention to the other to drive out
the hoi ses. They came out with a rusli.
of course, and tho Indian, who could
not then got out of the way probably if
ho had tried, was trampled to death.
The affair will be investigated to-day.

The way of the informer is generally
That is a proposition that the United
States government proposes to demon
strate in two trials for murder and con
spiracy that w ill Iks called in the Dis
trict Court during the present week.
Early last glimmer some hangers on
alwut headquarters at San Carlos w ere
horrified at finding, in a little ravine
some distance from the barracks, the
dead Ixidy of a negro soldier named
William Fleming. The body was hor
ribly mutilated, the head being beaten
in with clubs and stones and the trunk
and limbs showing ghastly marks of the
wounds the dead man had received.
An investigation at once set on foot
by the post officers, who also immedi
ately reported the affair to tho United
States authorities, showed that while
Fleming was a good soldier, ho was not
by any means a favorite with his com
rades. Many of these, in fact, were dis
posed to lo jealous of him mainly for
the reason, perhaps, that he was a good
soldier and as such found favor, as they
claimed, with the officers.
The investigation developed the fact,
further, that the men of his company
werouiven to liracticing all sorts of
petty imjMisitions upon Fleming, and
that a very great amount of kicking was
the result with much ill feeling growing
out of it all. Tho soldiers amongst
whom the trouble occurred, perhap" it
is well to statu, were all colored.
It stems that the chief of Fleming's
perseeutoih was Sergeant IOg.m, wlio
had command of the squad to which
the murdered man belonged and who
therefore had it in his power to make
the victim of his dislike extremely un
comfortable. So far were these iiersecutions carried
that igan reeeived a reprimand for
them from his superior officers and at
once jumped to the conclusion, whether
right or wrong does not matter, that
Homing had rejiorted him.
This, it may Ik? imagined, did not
tend to make matters any plciisanter for
Tho bitterness of feeling grew more

work of vengeance virtually off" his

la', Jefferson Wilson and a man named
Edwards, who were arrested shortly
afteT the finding of Fleming's Ixxly, anil
who were subsequently in lictesl liy the

The evidence showed that these men
had enticed Fleming nway from the
camp and had beaten him todeath. The

Very nearly all tho negro soldiers at
San Carlos have besin called to Phoenix
as w itnessos in these cases, and the
trial will probably prove to be a very
long and tedious one.
It is believed, ujKJn very good grounds,
that the whole story did not come out
at tho investigation before the grand
jury, and, aside from the fact that it
may bo possible to connect Logan more
directly with the actual killing, there
are anticipated some other develop
ments that may prove exceedingly sen

The Odd Fellows lodge of Phojiiix has
about completed arrangements for the
lot on the south side of Center street,
between Washington and Adams, and
will begin almost immediately there tho
erection of one of the handsomest build
ings in Phamix. Tho plans for the struc
ture have not yet been drawn, but it has
been decided thnt the building w ill lxs of
brick, three stories in height. It will be
on the corner of tho alley, 35 feet front
on Center street by 110 feet deep. Tho
lower floor will be fitted for stores, the
second very probably devoted to office
purposes, while the Odd Fellow 8 will use
tho entire upper floor for their own pur
poses, fitting themselves one of the
handsomest and most commodious halls
in tho Territory.

"Yes," said Mr. Hines, of the water
company to a reporter for The Iterun
licvn tho other day, "we have now un
der consideration the advisability of
very largly increasing the water facili
ties of our company."
"Are your plans definitely determined
"Well I can hardly say that. We
know what we have decided upon doing
and then, in other matters, our plans
are not yet settled."
"Will j ou tell me what you have de
"Oh, Yes. To begin with, we will al
most at once begin the putting down of
new mains upon streets not now sup
plied with them, and of extending those
upon streets where such extensions are
needed. Kor instance, the Washington
street main will be extended out to the
College addition, and out Center stieet
the main will Ik' extended south to sup
ply the people in the additions in that
direction. Then we will put down mains
on Yavapai, Jackson and Van Buren
streets, which will enable us to supply
the people in the Linville addition no't

not settled beyond that or, rather, the
method of carrying them out has not

water supply? "
"es, we must increase the supply

"Yes, the uncertainty is about that.
vv c do not know w bother to raise the
present pipe or to build a new one
nearer the center of the city. The lat
ter plan would give us very much greater
pressure, and probably bo better on
many accounts. The present standpipe
is one hundred feet in height and four
teen feet in diameter, w lth a capacity
of 115,000 gallons. At first it was con
templated to raise the height of this
pipe fifty feet, increasing its capacity
one-half but, as I have said, we are now
considering the plan for a new pipe and
are as yet undecided. If tho new pipe
is decided upon, it will bo 150 feet
high and thirty-live feet in diameter.
That w ill give us, as you can see, an
abundant supply w ith plenty of pressuro
for all purposes. Our improvements
will be ahead of the city several years,
that you can rely upon."
"Are there any other improvements 1"
"But one thing more. We will put a
new six or eight inch main on Center
street, to which all the other mains will
be connected thus giving us perfect con

A can full of nuggetts, ranging in size
from a pea to a pigeon's egg, from the
Weaver country, was recently exhibited
to a gentleman from Phumix. They

Within the next six months there will
be erected on Castle Creek, in what is
known as the Buzzard Koost country,
three mills. One of these, a live-stamp
mill, has been ordered and is now on
the way from the east. Two of the
mills will be put up by Denver and the
third by Trinidad parties.
Phelps, Darge & Co. arc prepairing to
put up a stamp mill about twenty-six
miles southeast ol I'rc-cott. This lirm
owns the Hackl)erry, Senator and
Boggs mines, the latter showing a ten
foot vein of very rich ore. The several
mines are situated at a considerable dis
tance apart, and it is the intention of
tho linn to connect the properties w ith
the main mill by a belt railway.

From private advices received in this
city it can be reliably stated that the
Yarncll & Kdgar mine, situated at the
head of Antelope and Santa Slaria crec ks
and about eighty miles northwest of
Phoenix, has been bonded to Duncan
and Dunbar, of Los Angeles, for $40,
000. The new owners w ill begin at once
actively to develop the mino for all
there is in it. As yet no very extensive
prospecting work has been done, al
though there is a great deal of good pay
ore in sight. The parties who have
bondexl the mine have had their eyes
upon it for some time past, and finally
concluded to purchase upon tho judg
ment of a well-known 1'rescott expert.

WON THE FLAG.
Miss Nellie Fowler s Prize
Patriotic Influence of
Stais and Stripes.
Worthily Won By
Girl. Full Text
l'heenix has a young lady who, may
hap, will shine ns one of the literary
lights of the future.
She is a most charming girl,
the young lady in question, Miss
Nellie Fowler, a pupil of the Phoe
nix High school. When a Repub
lican reporter called at the spacious ios
idencc of her mother on Madison and
Pinal streets Saturday, she sat with
three of her young lady friends under
the shadow of a stately tree upon the
lawn that surrounds the dwelling. Khe
seemed scarcely more than fifteen years
old, but rather tall and very lissome o"
figure. She was dressed simply in white,
with her jet black hair hanging in a
long braid dow n her back, and therevvas
a marked look of intellect upon her face.
Miss Nellie is the young lady whose
bright esay, written for " Youth't
Companion, has brought honor to her
self, to Arizona and to her instructors in
the public schools of Phanix. It has
brought more than that, for it has won
one of the handsome flagj, nine by fif
teen feet, offered by the Companion peo
ple to that particular echool in each
state or territory of which one pupil
should send to the paper in question an
esay that should be deemed worth) so
handsome a prize. The topic given for .
theesay was to be "The Patriotic In
fluence of the American Flae When
Bailed Over the Public Schools," ard it
was treated by Miss Nellie as follow):
MISh I-OWIEIt'b KhSVY.
"More than a century has passed irr
the life of our nation since the altar of
freedom was consecrated by a liberty
loving people, and the American flag
floated in the breeze as the emblem of
freedom. It now waves over a country
unsurpassed in natural advantages, cli
mate and fertility; over a raco whose
patriotism is ever'great, but is especially
roused by the "Star Spam-lad Banner,';
the song that is dear to every American
Nearly all of this patriotism has een
acquired by training in youth, for there
are very few alivewho fought in the rev
olution or lived in the days when the
colonies were struggling 'for liberty.
"Were it jiossible to get a view of th'is
vast United States, w ith each and everv
Hag waving from a standard, would ft
not equal in loveliness a rainbow ?
What would express more puritv, daring
or perseverence than this scene? It
would extend from .Maine to Alaska,
over New-England and her forests, tlie
Empire State, the coal fields of Penn
sylvania, the fertile valley of the Mis
sissippi, with its grand outlet and its
tributaries, the lofty Itockic, lilled with
gold and silver, ami so on to the giand
Pacific, whose waters, with those of
other oceans, should be covered with
the emblematic hues.
"Although the people of America are
very co-mopolitan, the Hag is respected
and honored b all, and all are proud to
see it waving over the public building,
for its beauty is never marred by oppres
sion. "The young of our land, having a life
of labor befoie them, should be taught
to love their country and to have an in
terest in its welfare and prosperity. To
this end they must have something be
fore them continually to remind tlmm
of their forefathers and of the struggle
of those forefathers for liberty; and
what is better for this tluul the flag of
our forefathers floating over the public
"Let each thread represent a pa
triot and his deeds, and the whole,
with its subdivisions, the na
tionthe stars signifying harmony;
the circle tormed by 'them the union;,
and their number the number of state;
the blue field like that of the eovenaar
ters of Scotland, showing the league of
the United Colonies against oppression,
a also perseverance, vigilance- and jus
tice; and the red and white stripes-
the former denoting daring and tlv
latter purity indicating the number ot
the original colonies. With this i3ih
cation concerning the starry banner in i
American will feel, when he sees it in fl
foreign lands, that no symbol awaiens
in him ho quickly love" for his native
land, or so quicklv speeds his blood and
melts his eye. Just as the Englishman
thinks the Thames the the greatest in
the world, or as tlie Frenchman js
roused bv "I.a Marseillaise," so i is
w ith people of all nations. Their Hag,
their country, is the best.
"This is patriotism. That we can re
joice in a nation's glory, carry a nation's
blood in our veins, 'suffer a nation's
shame, and feel a nation's hope is one of
the privileges of our citizens. It is one
of the sacred affections of the heart, one
of the elements of virtue; and if ever,
in the youth of our land, it should be
conquered by indolence and a love of
show, then our nation, like the ancient
Iloman Empire, will gradually fall.
"To be a Roman was thought liotter
than to be a king but tho Hag of the
Union ever floating will make our v oath
feel that to be an American is fielter
than any thing on earth.
"Tlagof the frce heart's only home,
Ily AiiRel hands to labor Riven,
Th htars have lit the uelVln dome.
And all thy hues ere born in HeaTen.' '
