Ox A Took : Governor Saffbrd and his lady
Hon. Coles Bashford and judge Titus left Tuc
aon on Thursday to visit northern und centra
Arizona, The secretary and judge will return
within a few weeks, but tho Governor with hi8
lady will visit the former home of Mrs'
Safford, in South San Diego, and thence take a
our to the Eastern States. Upon learning the
Governor' b intention the people of Taoson as
sembled at his residence on Tuesday even ing
to aknowledge their appreciation of his manly
efforts in behalf of the Territory, dnring hiB
sojournment here, and to give a farewell par
ty to himself and his very hospitable and un
assuming lady. The company had assembled
at 9 o'clock when the music atartod up aad the
dancs was announced, and never did floor
respond beneath the feet of a more jovial and
hearty set of dancers. About 1 o'clock the
party broke up, when tho guests took their do
parturo, feeling happy but not altogether recon
ciled to lose the tho society of tho Governor and
his lady evan for a brief time.
Suicide : On Wednesday evening, Mr. Sloan
a gambler, and for some years past a resi
dent of Tucson committod suicide. During
two weeks, immediately preceding the event,
he had been auff ering from attacks of inter
miltent fever, and upon tho evening named
was confined by sickness to hia bed. In this
condition he requested a young man present
to bring the doctor to his,room, nnd no soon
er was he thus left alono than he seized hia
pistol and discharged its contents into his head.
Hie friend, hearing tho report of the pistol,
returned immediately to tha room where he
found the Tictim already in the agonies of
death, the bullet having entered above the
right ear and penetrated the brain. Mr. Sloan,
from some accident through life, became ter
ribly deformed and was entirely di3ablod from
engaging inanykind of heavy or active labor.
It is supposed that hia being poor and sick
and helpless caused him to regard lifo as
barthensome, and urged him to seek rather the
uncertainty of etemiiy.
