AKERS SUSTAINED
In the Halderman Case by the Depart
ment of Justice.
It will be remembered that on Or
about the first of August the Halder
man case, in which the friends of the
Haldermans made a grea effort to in
duce Acting Governor Chas. Akers to
commute the sentence of those boys
from death to life imprisonment; or,;,
failing in that, to get him to grant
them a respite of thirty or sixty days.
Mr. Akers gave several days to a hear
ing, and after considering the case in.,
all the details, during which time al-"
leged new evidence and every influence
both inside and outside the .territory
was brought to bear upon him, he
decided there was nothing to justify
him in granting executive clemency.
He therefore decided not to interfere
with the decisions of the court but al
lowed the judgment to stand. An ap
peal was taken to the president. . The
case was urgent, for unless a reprieve
or stay of sentence was granted, the
Haldermans would hang on the 10th
of August. The president had no time
to investigate, and therefore granted
a reprieve until October 5, 1900. Since,
then all the papers in the case that
were submitted to Gov. Akers were
laid before the attorney general and.
the president. These documents have
been given a most careful examination
and today Secretary Akers received
from the department of justice a com
munication informing him that his de
cision had been fully approved. This
is a complete vindication of the course
of Secretary Akers in the matter and
of course has convinced the president
that Mr. Akers is a man who can be
trusted to do what is right. Gazette.
The Old Clock.
As an evidence of the disorganizing
effects of thelate democratic convention,
the staid, virtuous old town clock on
the dome of the court house yesterday
deliberately and with malicious intent,
struck thirteen at one o'clock. That
old time piece has done duty up in mid
air for many years. It has witnesse4
floods, plaza meetings, changes in Ari
zona's governors, and various other
calamities, but always was true to the
people of Maricopa county. But yestei
day the deviltry of the territorial demo
cracy was more than it could stand and
the old jade got dizzy and went out
on a strike and hammered out thirteen
o'clock. Gazette.
Still More Counterfeiting.
The Secret Service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the aver
age person would never suspect them of
being spurious. Things of great value
are always selected by counterfeiters for
imitation, notably the celebrated Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters, which has
many imitators but no equals for indi
gestion, dyspepsia, constipation,' ner
vousness and general debility. The
Bitters sets things right in the stomach,
and when the stomach is in good order
it makes good blood and plenty of it.
In this manner the Bitters get at tbe
seat ot strength and vitality, and restore
vigor to the weak and debilitated. Be
ware of counterfeits when buying.
King of Arizona Mines now has tri

Dr. Greenleaf returned on Saturday
night's train from Oceanside, where he
