Lost Child Found.
Word came from Higley Satur
day evening that the lost child, An
tonio Garcia, had been found near
the Hall brothers ranch, many miles
from its home. Antonio disappeared
on Monday evening, having wander
ed from the home of his parents on
the Mcnmcnnet ranch cast of Hig
ley. Last seen was when the little
one appeared at the Miller ranch
about five o'clock. Miller, without
making an investigation and claim
ing that he supposed the child's
parents were near at hand, notified
it to move on. The little one turned
and disappeared in the mesquite and
chapparel and that was the last time
it was seetr until Saturday morning
about ten o'clock, although a score
of people had scoured the surround
ing country almost continuously. All
that time the boy had neither food
or drink and when finally located
was almost all in.

two ago Manager A. H. Reeves, of

Want Home For Orphans
The club women of Arizona will
ronew their efforts to secure the
establishment of a state health de
partment and as citizens urge that
this measure be adopted, if certain
recommendations to? be proposed at
the coming convention of the State
Federation of Women's club to be
held in Douglas this week are adopt
ed. If the convention passes favorably
on a resolution offered that women
be given positions of responsibility
in all public institutions where wo
men and children are confined, the
matter will also be put before the
legislature. Another measure that
will probably reach the lawmakers
will be that just provision be made
for orphans of the state by the
organization of an orphans' home.
One of the most ardent advocates
for the unprovided children of the
state is Dr. Agnes McKee Wallace,
of Prescott, president of the Ariz
ona Federation of Women's clubs,
who arrived yesterday to pass a
few days with relatives before at
tending the convention.
Murderer Well Guarded.
An unusual precaution has been
taken in the case of William Faltin.
Though judgment has not been en
tered, at the direction of Judge
Phillips and County Attorney Wy
man Tie has been placed under a
constant guard. There are two
shifts of twelve hours each. This
there is no telling what Faltin's
next more will be. He was not
worrying yesterday about the ver
dict of the jury the night before
condemning him to death. Speak
ing of it he laughed and said.
"Hanging's quick business; all over
in fifteen minutes."

Stock Smuggler Arrested.
Juan Rocha, a Mexican rancher
who lives up the valley, was placed
under arerst Saturday morning by
United States Marshal Hopkins, on
charges preferred by the United
States customs officials, for wilfully
smuggling Mexican stock into the
United States in, violation of the
law, and harboring the same.
it was rumored some time ago
that Rocha had horses and mules
on his ranch on which the1 duty
had not been "paid, and that he was
planning to bring in other stock
from Mexico. Thee ustoms officials
have been keeping watch on him to
see if he would report the stock
that he had in his possession, but
he failed to do so.
Much Interest ja Case.
Much interest is manifested locally
over the appeal of the case of the
State of Arizona vs. Wood Allen,
for the unlawful killing of quail,
which has just been filed in Phoe
The game law in question was one
of the bills referred to the people
at the last election and which were
incorporated in . the statutes of the
state by popular will.
The case will be docketed by the
supreme court and taken up at an
early date. It will decide the sta
tus of all the measures referred to
the people' at the last election.
The contention of the defendant
in the appeal is that Chapter 82 of
the special session of the state leg
islature is in suspension, and that
the submission of the law at the last
election was void. It further alleg
es that it was not such a general
election as permitted the submission
of the referendum measure, and fur
ther because of the lack of time be
tween the filing of the referendum
petitions and the election to give no
tices which are required by the con
stitution of the state.

Republican candidate for mayor in
the recent city election, was based
on an economical and business-like
administration of the city's affairs

are divided in the usual practice,
between the members, on the basis
of the taxes they pay.
"The purpose of the league will
be to force publicity in regard to the
use being made of the citizens' mon

A White City.
Casa Grande is- the direct center
of a host of home-seekers arriving
in large numbers from all parts of
the United States. People have ar
rived in Casa Grande in such great
numbers that securing a house .for
living quarters is entirely out of the
question. Consequently Casa Grande
can truly boast of a "White City,"
owing to the fact that many of the
new-comers who have erected their
tent-houses, or built homes on their
claims, have erected tents on the
outskirts of Casa Grande.
The white city is growing every
day. The railroad yards are ' con
stantly full of chartered cars con

fFrom Sundays Daily.)
George E. Ainsworth, Jr., of Wal
nut Creek, holds the championship
of the country up-to-date in killing
the biggest mountain lion ever
known, which measured ten feet two
inches from tip to tip, and weighed
over 24a pounds, according to letter:
The animal was found devouring
a calf, but when the first bullet
wounded him, began retreating in
the deep snow of the Juniper range,
and later was killed without any
trouble. Mr. Ainsworth removed
the intestines and brought the big
fellow home without defacing the
head or the hide. It will be placed
on exhibition this week in the city.
and no bounty will be asked from
the county, as the pelt is an unus
ually beautiful one. The age of the
lion is said to have been at least
ten years and it was a male. It
entered the settled country in want
of food, on account of the deep
snows on the mountain adjacent
where cattle do not range and where
food is not to be had.
