-We had the oleasure of examining a few
days ago a jewel box that one of our citi
zens presented to his better half as a
Christina present. Although a little late
in the presentation owing to the great
amount of labor required in its construc
tion, we have no doubt that is was as
gladly received us if it had been on time.
It is almost impossible to discribe this
marvel of workmanship which has oc
cupied the entire time of one man for up
wards of four months and although made
almost entirely with a common Jack
knife would reflect credit upon most skill
ed mechanic in the world. In its construe
tion the re a e over 5(00 pieces consisting
of all the rare and beauli'ul woods grown
on the Pacific coast, and in design repre
senting flower; and emblems inlaid in
ebony with 6atin wood as well as some of
the most delicate carving irmagiuable
while the iulenoi is finished in about the"
same style and lined with velvet and sa-
tiiswitli trays and cunning little nooks
fur rings and watches etc, etc. Taken
:!! in nil it is-just what we would imagine
a man lilce J. II. Taggart would cor.cieve
tnb a fitting Christmas gift to his amible
Atd .- cei.iii:lirln d wife.
Our local item in last week's issue,
relative'o tin Prison (J iinmissioners hold
ing ov ron account of the failure of the
Bemocritic Council to confirm the Gov.
tirnor's appointees, we find wjis entirely
in error. Such would have been the
rc.-nlt luui the Governor not reappointed
and eomtnis.-ioned after the adjournment
of the Legislature which leaves it for the
next session of the Legislative council to
confirm or reject "as they may. It is a
notorious fact and a matter of record that
the policy and course persued by the
couneil toward the Governor's nomina
tions to all Territorial offices was most
disgraceful and to say the least undigni
fied and unstatesmanlike. The new com
missioners are Wm. M. Buffum, John
Haynes and J. F. Knapp. They will
hold a meeting in Yuma on Monday, the
fourth instant, and we venture to predict
there will be but few changes made in the
officials of the prison. We have
no reason to anticipate any as the present
officials arc good ones.
Freight traiH No 22 West bouud Wed

dent about 4 miles east of Gila Bend,
Nine curs were thrown from the track and
ympletly dumolUkcd. J.H. Roberson one
o'i the brakemen was killed and Frank
Black badly injured in the hand. The
accident was caused by one of the wheels
breaking directly through the center.
Mr. Roberson was from Alameda Cal. and
a. young man of good habits and excellent
reputation. One curious phase was the
finding of a tramp in a sealed car of bull
ion with his head jammed quite through
the side of the car and a large lot of buil
ioH on his legs and body but alive. The
incoming through passenger train was
delayed nearly six hours.
