attempted to commit suicide, by
shooting himself in the left lung, the
bullet penetrating the heart. He was
removed from his residence to the
city hospital, and was rapidly bleed

checked by the hospital staff, and the
remarkable surgicaloperatiou of sew

by Dr. Rassieur.
To do this, the physician was ob
liged to cut away a section of the
affeoted ribs, and also to cut through
the lung, raising it up to reach the
Irieardium. The bullet hole found
there was enlarged two inches, with a
pair of silver scissors, and the surgeon
inserted his fingers in the aperture
tawM made, drawing the heart to the
front wall of the pericardium.
With the delicate organ held in the
palm of his haud. he proceeded deftly
to sew up the gaping hole. The
stitches were taken, the blood spurt

needle. In a short time the sutures
were made, and the throbbing mem

A VALUABLE INVITATION.
Pasadeua. California, has sent an
invitation to President Roosevelt to
visit that city which is the most un

received by him.

the bill had leen reKirted from the
committee and recommended to pass,
and urged the city council to pass
the resolution favoring the measure.

Regarding the disputed matter of

The house passed a bill pro
viding for the improvement of the
agricultural stations, and for the
holding of farmers' institutes. It
provides for a bond issue of 11. 000

The Journal-Miner has leen inform
ed by two thoroughly reliable men
that there are several head of dead
cattle lying along the creek only a
short distance above the Del Rio
pumping plant. This matter should
be looked into by the proper authori
ties at once and if such is the case the
carcasses should be removed imme
diately so as not to contaminate the
water which is consumed by the resi
dents of this city. The carcasses are
on the old liaker and Campbell ranch.
ami one of the men on the ranch said
he had tried to haul them away but
had only an old plug of a horse and
could not do it. The health of this
city demands that such matters should
le watched closely and not allowed to
remain a moment longer than can pos
sibly lie avoided.

dence of the correctness of the Jour

The matter of extra arc lights for
the city. Mr. (ilass. of the Prescott
Electric company, was present and
explained to the council that the com

price to the city had been reduced so
that the tweuty proposed lights would
only cost the city about the same that
fifteen would have cost heretofore.

The little speech delivered by May
or Burke at the last meeting of the
city council and the subsequent col
loquy between him and members of
the city council, as taken down by a
stenographer taken to the meeting
by him. follows:
Gentlemen of the Couucil:
At the last meeting of the common
couucil. 1 submitted for the consider
ation of the council, the names of
some gentlemen that 1 asked to have
appointed to offices, and the couucil.
in their judgment, deemed it advis
able not to confirm any of the ap
pointments that 1 made.
1 certainly have the interests of the
City of Prescott at heart. 1 want the
assistance of the council, and fully
realize that the couucil and mayor
must work iu harmony and without
a unit we cannot exect to handle the
affairs of the city in the interests of
the taxpayers. 1 had no personal mo
tive or desire from a selfish standtioint
when 1 submitted any of the names of
the gentlemen 1 asked to have ap
pointed; it is true. 1 did not consult
with any of the memliers of the coun
cil with reference to the appoint -meuts
that 1 asked them to confirm.
1 did not intend to lie discourteous to
the council and I thought that from
the time I was elected to office up to
the time I assumed the duties there
of, that if the council had any siicces-
tions to make, that 1 would lie glad
and willing to listen to the expres
sions of the couucil. but no sugges
tions were offered. I was thrown
upon my own resources and from that.
1 had the right to Udieve it to lie to
the liest interests of the taxiayers of
the City of Prescott that a change iu
some ot the offices would lie to the
best interests of the taxpayers.
Insofar as the city attorney is con
cerned, if in the judgment of the
council, it is not advisable to select
or confirm the appointment of Mr.
Norris. whom 1 believe to lie a gentle
man of i nt grity, honesty and ability,
with the consent of the council 1 will
submit another name, but 1 want to
have an expression from the council
as to whether yon will confirm the
appointment of the gentleman I will
name before you vote upon it. I want
nothing but harmony, as I said be
fore we cannot progress in the un-
buildiuc of the city of Pre-eott with-
ut harmony lietween the council and
the mayor. I am ready to proceed.

intended submitting for appointment
as city attorney.

of a city attorney.for his legal advice.
Mr. Ellinwood made a few nhaisgCUl
and amendments to the resolution and
ir wtis unanimously adopted a

before the couucil and vig
orously opposed the proposition of
the city giving the property on
which the high school building now
stands to the territory for the purpose
of establishing a manual training
school. He said that there would not
le over IBBOO appropriated for the
purpose of putting it in good repair
and remodeling it for the purposes in
tended and he was not iu favor of giv
ing away property worth 190,000 for
such a small consideration.
A few other minor matters were con
sidered when the council adjourned
until :l o'clock tomorrow, Friday.
A PRESSING NEED.
Filthy and Muddy Condition of
Streets Should Have Attention.
There was a slight rain storm leal
night. It was not much of a rain,
but the sidewalks and crossings today
are in simply a horrible condition.
The mud hole where a sidewalk

the -alley by the Congregational
church, is next to impassable ou ac
count of the mud and pede-triaus take
to the middle of the street there
rather than take chances of getting
hopelessly stuck in the mud hole
where a sidewalk should be located.
Every street crossing lietween Hast
Prescott and the Journal Miner office
is iu about the same condition as the
sidewalk at the above place. Every
crossing is covered with mud to a
depth of several inches. The mud is
adobe and sticks to the feet of pedes
trians and is scattered along the side
walks so that little choice is left
even where there are side walks of
using them or taking to the street.
In a twenty years' residence iu Pres
cott the writer has never seen such a
condition of the streets so far as ac
commodations for pedestrians are con
cerned as exist at present. The city
has a chain gang at work at present
and it does seem that they could not
be put to a better Use than to clear
the street crossings of mud. and im

could get around without Railing in
It is doubtful if there is another
firm in the whole territory of Arizona
that can show a greater percentage of
growth and improvement than the
firm of Shumate Kaihle. There is
scarcely a mouth that there is not
some improvement made iu the equip
ment of the store for the lietter service
of the (nitrous of the firm. The latest
improvement in this line is the ad
dition of a candy factory which has
been added not only for his own ceu
venience but a wholesale deiartment
for the manufacture of candy for the
local trade, iu order to put in this
department it was necessary to procure
the basement under his store, as the
store room was already full to over
flowing with goods. This basement is
the full size of the store room proper
being KaM feet.
The front of the basement has been
flttted up for the candy factory and is
equipped with every convenience
needed for the manufacture of those
delicious chocolates, bon bous. taffies,
case candies, stick candies of all
In the rear of the candy department
is the ice cream manufacturing de
partment. This part of the business
has also been enlarged ami the facili
ties for manufacturing all kinds of ice
creams and ices has lieen greatly aug
mented. A water motor has lieen at
tached to the freezers and now all the
ice cream man has to do is to mix up
his ingredients, turn the water into
the motor and iu about five minutes
he has his cream all ready to serve.
The capacity of the plant now is about
180 gallons of cream iu ten hours.
Messrs. Shumate ,V Kaible maufac
ture all their owu syrups both for the
fountain and the ice creams and the
greatest care is exercised that every
thing shall be of the best quality.
Another new feature which will
soon lie in operation will be the auto
matic carbonator for the soda foun
tain. This has already lieen ordered
and as soon as it arrives it will lie
placed iu position and attached to the
fountain. This apparatus will be
placed in the front s!i IW window ol
the store where it may be men at all
times. By attachiug the tvirbouator
to the city water pipe and also attach
ing a current of electricity the ma
chine is ready for action and will
automatically keep the fountain ready
for business without further atten
tion. Oliver Jordan, who has beeu with
the firm for the past year, will have
full charge of this department as well
as the manufacture of the candies

demonstrated that it can turn nut the

Prescott people who failed to attend
last night's entertainment at the
opera house missed one of the treats
of their lives, and one which is not
often offeriil them. While the com
pany consisted of only two perform
ers. Mr. Gavin Spence and Miss Flora
.MacOoiiald. interest never flagged
from the rise of the curtain to its
drop at the close of the entertainment.
The title of the entertainment given
was "Twa Hours at Home." This of
course is very appropriate for tne
Scottish people who attend, but to the
writer who c iimot claim that honor.
although having a strain of Scotch
blood in his veins, it was a "Twa
Hours" very pleasant visit, with a
collide of peerless Scotch entertain
ers. If the entertainment had lieen
"twa hours" longer the pleasure
would have beeu just doubled.
Both Mr. Spence and Miss MacDou-
ald certainly know how to reach the
hearts of their audience and their
every number was greeted with the
most enthusiastic applause.
Miss MacDouald is possessed of a
very sweet and well trained voice and
her manners on the stage are most
charming. She is grace jiersonitted in
her dancing her step lieing light and
elastic, and she never fails to capture
Mr. Spence is also a beautiful and
correct singer and his rendering of
Scotch ballads elicited the most en
thusiastic applause, while his recital
of narratives were excellent.
The only criticism of the play
beard, that was not most complimen
tary, and this was one of disappoint
ment rather than of criticism, was the
efaeeBee of the bagpipes. Mr. Sienec
gave an excellent imitation of tin-
pipes but it was not the genuine ar
ticle. Should the couple ever return

SENIOR DEPA RTM EST.
Orace Shaw. Nina Greenwood.
The ladies of the local lodge of
Daughters of Rebekah have lieen
working like lieaversfor several days
making arraiigments for this song so
cial which was given iu I. O. O. F.
hall last evening, and as a result the
social was a decided success both from
a financial as well as social stand
point. The only feature of the evening
which was in any way a disappoint
ment to the ladies was the inability of
some who were ou the literary pro
gram to be present and render their
numbers. A very interesting program
was furnished, however.
The main feature of the evening's
amusement was the guessing contest
and this furnished no end of fun.
Each jiersou in attendance was re
quested to come dressed so as to rep
resent some song. There were about
forty persons present who were so at
tired and slips were passed to the au
dience to write out the names of the
songs represented. Miss Clara Logan
succeeded iu correctly guessing
thirty-two of them and was awarded
the prize for the ladies, a hudsome
book entitled "Lovely Marv." The
men folks were not so lucky and some
of them could not have guessed "Me
Giuty" if a well dressed Irishman had
jumped bate a bath tub full of water,
but they had lots of fun tryiug. The
prize for the men was won by Master
Charley Merritt. a lad about twelve
years old. the prize being a book with
a paradoxical title."A Complete Bach
elor, " as if such a thing could pos
Dancing was enjoyed for a couple of
hours after the contest was over.
The ladits realized a snug little
sum of money which will lie applied
to a most worthy cause, that of build
ing a home for infirm and disabled
Odd Fellows. The grand lodges of
the L O. O. F. and Rebekahs have
been working for this noble object for
sime time ami now have a fund of
over SSKKI iu cash for that purpose.
As soon as a sufficient sum has been
raised tne Home will ne limit some
place in Arizona, the place not having
lieeu. decided as yet.
Has Been Called By City Council
of Prescott For the Seventh
At Which Time Tax Payers Will Be
Asked to Vote on Bonds to Extend
Water and Sewer Systems
At its special meeting yesterday
afternoon the city couucil decided to
call the special election for the is
suance of $100,000 bouds to extend
the water and sewer systems, for
Tuesday. April 7, when only tbe tax
payers of the city will be qualified to
vote. The question is a serious one
and should be calmly considered by
the taxpayers of Prescott lietween now
and the time for the election to take
place. While it is true the taxes
now seem to be aliout all property
owners can stand yet t he case at hand
is one that needs to lie met in the
light of an absolute necessity. The
city has nearly doubled iu population
since the present water and sewer sys
tems were first installed besides the
re-establishment of Fort Whipple, all
of which have made such demands on
the water supply that the 'present sys
tem is inadequate, and tbe question
which faces Prescott is can the "prop
erty owners of the city afford not to
meeMhis urgent need in fact abso
lute necessity. The sewer out let
must be moved at least a mile and a
half or two miles beyond where it is
or there is great danger of losing the
post again, as the department of war
has already asked that the out let lie
extended beyond the military reserve.
This expense, coupled with the fact
that the pipe line must tie repaired
for about eight miles where it is in
very bad shape, aud the further need
that an auxiliary pumping station be
added to increase the daily capacity
of the pumping plant so that the rap
idly increasing demands for water
may be met and still further the fact I
that the old reservoir is in such a I
deplorable condition that it will only
hold about nine feet of water at best
aai much of this is lost by leakage, ;
while the condition of the reservoir
constantly grows worse, it can readily
be seen that the need for the proposed
bond issue is very urgent.
