Santa Clausville, Iceland, Dec. I2, 1901.
Mr. A. P. Skinner, Main St., Bisbee Arizona,
Dear Sir: In looking for a location as a dis
tributing point, for my visit to the dear people of
Bisbee. I find your store most central and I take
the liberty of asking permission to make my an
nual display in your window.
The articles I have concluded to present
this year to your townspeople, consists of goocl
warm Underclothing, Socks and Shoes, as well as
a nice collection of stylish Hats, pretty Shirts,
and some of the most fetching Neckwear I have
ever seen. I have about concluded to wear one of
the ties myself, instead of my fur coat, THEY ARE
I will bring several dozen dress gloves, silk
lined, that make you feel like a real Prince.
You know I never used to wear suspenders,
r- but this year I have such pretty silk ones that I
couldn't resist the temptation to put a pair on, and
do you know I actally feel young again. Did I
tell you about the fancy hose I am wearing. My
goodness, I am getting too giddy for anything.
Oh, but they are warm ones; and of course I
had to don a pair of those sky blue Boston garters
you told me about.
Now, Mr. Skinner, I know this is impos
ing somewhat upon your gcol nature, but as there
is no other location in Bisbee that suits me, I ear
nestly hope you will grant my request, and I will
try and see that you do not regret it
Ve-y siecerely yours,
p. s I would like to arrive between the 15th and 20th if

New Mexico Reached
Otero for Governor.
Washington, Dec. 18. The President this afternoon
appointed Miguel Otero to be governor of the territory of
New Mexico. Otero is the present encumbent, having
served for four years. Many of the Republicans of New
Mexico fought bitterly to prevent his reappointment, but
to no purpose.
Washington, Dec. 18. Among the nominations sent
by the President to the senate today were Benjamin P.
Baker, of Nebraska, associate justice of the supreme court
of New Mexico, and Frederick Muller, receiver of public
moneys at Santa Fe, New Mexico.

the sworn d tty of the grand jury to
have done so, while if their statements

Cutting Out Politics
From the Judiciary
Washington, Deo. 18 There was a
decided ripple In political circles today
whert President Roosevelt stated pub
li ly to some gentlemen who called on
him that he wished it to be distinctly
understood that he is in earnest in his
intention to take all judicial appoint
ments out of politics. Today, in dis
cussing the selection of Judge Baker,
of Indiana, for the Circuit court, he
reiterated with emphasis, that political
"pull" should hereafter have no weight
whatever in making appointments to
the federal bench. In seeking infor
mation concerning the qualifications
of possible appointees the President
will, of course, be glad to hear from
senators and representatives from the
distriot or circuit involved. But he
makes it plain that their representa
tions will have no more weight than
those of any 'other citizens of good in
formation concerning the personality
and fitness of the men under considera
tion. In fact, efforts to gives political
aspect to the selection of any given
man for a federal judgeship will harm
rather than help his chances. The
President farther Intimates that when
a vacancy on a bench Is to be filled he
expects to depend largely upon the ad
vice of other juJges and of well known
lawyers, and that their opinion's will
be given consideration, Irrespective of
their party affiliations.

A lively shooting scrape made-things
interesting on Congress street, Tucson,
last Tuesday morning, says the Citizen.
Frank Linwood is a negro gambler who
ha9- been here for the past three
months. Be is a fellowwho Is always
looking for trouble, and the last few.
djjs it has been predicted by many of
the boys that he wouid "get killed."
This riornlng he entered the Arizona
Club and began to make trouble. He
was forced to leave there and went into
the Legal Tender with blood in his
eye. He stepped up to the faro table,
but Henry Nesbltt, who was in charge,
refused to let him pU.y, as it is against
the rules of the house to allow a negro
to play faro. This only added fuel to
the flames. Linwood raised a big row
and Nesbltt grabbed his six shooter
from the table drawer and pursued the
fleeing negro. He followed him out of
the front door onto the street. Here
the interesting part of the scrap took
Linwood, who is a big and powerful
negro, grabbed Nesbltt, who is a small
man, and bent him back like a reed.
Nesbltt's arms were stretched out and
his doable-action six shooter went off
accidentally, the bullet breaking the
plate glass window in the cigar store.
There was no one In the store at the
time, and after passing through several
cigar cases the bullet spent itself.
Linwood was frightened by the dis
charge of the gun and let Nesbltt go.
No sooner was Nesbltt released than
he bit the negro a powerful blow over
the head with the gun which would
have fractured the skull of an ordinary
man. It was sufficient to put Linwood
out of the game, however, and in a few
minutes Marshal Taylor arrived and
took Nesbitt into custody. Both com
batants were arrested and each paid a
fine of $20.

Mr B.Jones returned from Globe
Sunday, where he had been for a week

One of the most pleasing events In
the history of Naco occurred Sunday
evening, when a grand banquet was
tendered the employees of the Cana
nea company's mercantile department
at Naco, Arizona, and Naco, Sonora,
known as the Cananea Supply store,
by the manager, S. M. Agulrre.
The d'nner was given at the Hotel
Naco and was a masterpiece of the
chef's art,'as well as being admirably
chosen and perfectly served. The
wines were of the choicest, and many
speecheswere Imade, both witty and
eloquent. The .occasion was one of
importance. It commemorated the
successful months that intervened be
tween. last March and the 31st of Octo
ber. It was congratulatory on the
wonderful growth and the rapidly ac
quired great business of the stores of
the Cananea company during that time.
Last March Mr. Agulrre, Little Pete
and Fred Riley opened up the stores
on so small a scale that they actually
sold out several times. From that
small beginning, by good, energetic
business management, has arisen the
present fine establishment, and thirty
five employees sat down last evening
to the dinner. There were many ex
cellent speeches made, In which the
Cananea company was duly eulogized
on the sterling quality of.its employees,
the capability and energy of its man
agers, and frequent mention was made
of that remarkable specimen of pluck,
endurance, ability and success, Mr. W.
C. Greene. Among the speakers were
Messrs. H. D. Johnson, toastmaster; S,
M. Agulrre, A. D. Hinton, W. Eck
erley, F. Martinez, J. Bordwell, R.
Reay, L. Kennedy, T. Bates, R. V.
Daniels, V.R.N. Greaves. The courses
were interspersed with the speeches
on the various topics chosen, and the
banquet lasted at least three hours.
An attemppt was made to hold up a
resident on Maini'street last Friday
night. The assailant jumped from be
hind a building, and with leveled re
volver, demanded that the party hold
up his hands; instead he grabbed the
gun and quite a struggle ensued for its
possession. The weapon was cocked
and neither cared for it to explode in
his direction. Theories of the res!-'
dent failed to arouse anyone. At last
the bandit suggested an armstice by
proposing to leave the pistol with him,
which was agreed and the bandit disap
peared in the darkness.

Greaves lately. A batch of them were
