TnE Ehoonix Gazette has changed
hands, and hereafter will be under the
orders of lion. Tom Farish as Editor
and Hon. J. L. B. Alexander as busi
ness inanaijor. They certainly know
how and probably will give the pub
lic a live paper.
TnE Yuma Times enlarged its
borders in its last issue and came out
with eight pages in place of four as
heretofore. It presents a very neat
appearance, the typographical work
being good. It is full of reading and
the printers merit commendation for
its general make-up.
On the" afternoon of December 30th,
in Tombstone, Dr. G. C. Willis, a
prominent plrysician was brutally
murdered in cold blood by Dan Shank
lin, who formerly worked for him in
the Old Guard mine.
Is it not fully time that such des
"peradoes were promptly tried, and as
promptly punished and thus put an
end to such deeds of crime?
A grand move is on foot on the
part of the European Israelite Al
liance, and the wealthy Jews in
San Francisco to purchase 150,000
acres of land in Mexico on which
to place the Russian Jews. The
Alliance will pay their passage to
New York and from there the'
will be sent to their destination in
sailing ships, chartered by the San
Francisco Hebrew Association.
These persecuted Russian Jews are
great workers, make the best of
farmers and fruit growers. An
effort is being made to settle them
in Lower California. Why can we
not got some of them for Arizona?
Many of the Yuma Indians are
very angry, from the fact, they say,
that they were called in here by
agent Rust, to receive rations.
When they reached here from all
j)arts of the country they found
that there were no rations for them,
but that they had been called in to
be counted. The compliments
they pay Mr. Rust are far inoro ex
pressive than elegant. It is by
just zuch deceptions as this, if this
is true, and no one doubts it, that
many of the troubles with the In
dians are caused. They call agent
Rust 4old smooth'."
From lion. J. W. Dorrington of
Yuma, a box of magnilicrmt lemons
was received by W. A. Davis yester
day. They will be forwarded to Hon.
J. F. Culver, ac Emporip, Kansas, ai d
by him sent to Washington, D. C. In
the latter city they are to be placed
on permanent exhibition, with this

At a meeting of Company I, A.
D. 1S00, and fast asleep at the
Court House the other night, and
the most important thing that
come up before the House was the
matter of buying uniforms for the
Government, which was ably dis
cussed by some of the leading
members. The "Nu-gent" from
the East insisted on being heard,
but he "May's" well have tried to
boost the Court house over as to
move the Chairman. 'Fog arity,"
the drummer and not a "Com
mercial" traveler, moved that all
uniforms should be made to fit
him and cut down if necessary to
fit those of the Company who hap
pen to be smaller than the regula
tion size, "meaning himself." There
was a c,Hornbeck" motion which
went through. The next thing be
fore the house was the switch eng
gine, which also went through.
After surveying, our Civil En
gineer elect, thought best for all
members to buy uniforms, as it
was impossible for one of his
physique to be fitted from "hand-
me-Downs," or what was left of
"Fogs" size. The Sheriff and posse
were in attendance, but no arrests
were made. Adjournment of meet
ing was very pleasantly agreed on.
The matter of differences was set
tled on the street next day, very
satisfactory to bystanders. D. S.

pointed commercial agent of the Ven
tura Division, with headquarters in

and the personification of honesty and
candor. Mr. Finlay leaves a wife
