Mayor Timerhoff and the two new
Councilmen W. L. Richards and
Frank Whisman were inducted into
office last evening and after the
formal ceremony had been conclud
ed the new Mayor made the ap
pointments and announced the stand
ing committees as noted above.
There was no sensational incident
to mark the incoming reform admin
istration and the expected recommcn
dations from the new mayor along
those lines did not materialize, he
probably reserving them for a later
date. But there was a sentimental
feature that marked the transition
in the Jnctmibency of the office of
the chief executive of the municipal-;
hy when the retiring mayor was
presented with a gold watch on be
half of the citizens of Prescott. Mr.
Goldwater was completely taken by
surprise and he was so affected by
the token of appreciation of his ser
vices that he was overcome with
emotion when he attempted to re
spond in giving expression to his
When the old council had con
cluded its labors which consisted
at this session in the hearing of re
ports of city officials and the allow
ing of bills, Mayor Goldwater said:
It was in 1879 when I first took
office in Prescott and I don't recol
lect how many times I have served
as councilman or as mayor. I am
now the oldest as well as the young
est ex-mayor of the city and as to
my record, I can only refer to the
records of the city clerk. In re
tiring I have no recommendations
to offer and believe the new mem
bers of this body are thoroughly
capable of administering the affairs
of the city without any suggestion
from me. I have always found my
associates on the council courteous
and we have worked together with
out friction or trouble. I now take
great pleasure in presenting my suc
cessor, Mr. Timerhoff."
In assuming his seat. Mayor Tim
erhoff said: "I appreciate the honor
of the position not only because
it was bestowed upon me by my
fellow citizens but also because I
have succeeded as good a mayor as
you have made. I feel the people
of Prescott appreciate your faithful
and efficient services, and if I am
able to leave the office at the end
of my term and shall have made
as good a record, I shall feel that
their faith has not been unfounded.
In behalf of the citizens for whom
you have labored so well I desire
to present you with this token of
esteem. As time passes and you
look upon this memento, I hope you
will bear in mind the esteem of the
citizens of Prescott for yourself."
He then handed Mr. Goldwater a
case containing a valuable Howard
gold watch upon the exterior of
which is engraved this inscription:
Presented by Citizens of Prescott
111 recognition of his services.
After viewing the token for a few
seconds Mr. Goldwater undertook to
respond but after speaking a few
words, his voice became husky and
he almost choked with emotion. "I
can truly say," said he, "that this
is a surprise. I have always tried
to do my duty I have not tried to
please everybody but have always
tried to do right. I appreciate this
all the more because I was not ex
pecting anything of the kind. I
would have appreciated it if I knew
that my work had been appreciated
by only a few." Here the speaker
broke down and finally added: "I
hope you will excuse me if I say
nothing more at this time."
The new officials were then sworn
in by City Clerk Robinson and May
or Timerhoff announced that he
would make no address at this time.
He said that the members had held
an informal conference during the
week and had reached a conclusion
as to some of the work that was
planned. He hoped to be able to
make some recommendations and
trusted that his colleagues would not
hesitate to offer suggestions which
they deemed would be of benefit to
the city. He then announced the
Standing Committees and made the
appointments listed above, which
were ratified unanimously by the
Mrs. Jay. Wallace filed a written

TO AN OPEN REVOLT
Pioneers Surround Superintendent On
Street and Deputy Sheriff Is
Called to Protect Him
(From Tuesday's Dally)
As the outcome of the dismissal
from the Pioneer's Home in this city
of E. G. Bradley, a small-sized mu
tiny occurred on Sunday, in which
eight members forcibly resisted the
expulsion of their companion, and
for a time threatening demonstra
tions we're in evidence.
The climax came on Gurlcy
street, when Superintendent Cold
well enlisted the protection of Under
Sheriff Raible, so demonstrative was
the wrath of those who were support
ing the evicted pioneer. One re
port was in circulation that Bradley
had been ordered dismissed by the
Governor and Board of Control, but

Zieger was seen to get on his horse
at Congress Junction and to leave
for Octave about thirteen miles dis

have informed certain parties that
he was going to the Octave to set

same time reiterating that he had
committed the assault. He was
warned not to make the trip. Zieg
er was armed with a six-shooter, ac
cording to those who have come for
ward with their statements. At about
7:00 o'clock Zieger arrived at Oc
tave, and reaching the postoffici. tied
his horse to a post. He walked up
the street a short distance from the
Morrison home, when he retraced
his steps and returned to the post
office. Morrison saw him and walk

Contrary to many rumors in cir

killed at Ash Fork a week ago by
having his back broken, and on Fri

and perform his duties as brakeman

and Sunday's demonstration was in
keeping with the restless state of
affairs prevailing in that institution.
Bradley was admitted from Clifton.
Up to last night he had not been
reinstated. A dozen or more pio

passing away at Mercy Hospital
from pneumonia after an illness of
nearly three weeks.
His death has created expressions
of deep regret in ' this commnnity,

of cheer and good will- that gave
him an excellent name in furthering
any cause for the benefit of the pub

by the speeches that I heard at
