Prescott, Ariz., Jan. 11, 1S9S.
To the Members of the City Coun
cil, Prescott, Ariz.
Gentlemen: In pursuance with
the requirements of the City Char
ter. I hare the honor to submit for
your consideration tbo following
message, covering (1) the adminis
tration of city affairs during
the year 1S97, and (2) such sugges
tions as I trust will be of value to
you during 1893.
The revenues of the citv during
1S97, from all sources, were $21,525,
42, being an increase of $4,310.61
over tho income of 1S9G, while the
annual surplur, represented by cash
in the city treasury at this date, is
4,237.62, as against S3.781.S6 sur
plus for 1896. As this increase in
revenue and surplus has been cre
ated without the slightest addition
to tho tax or license rate, but by a
more rigid enforcement of police
and other regulation?, I cannot but
congratulate you and tlie entire
corps of city officials on the show
iug thus presented.
While the surplus in tho city
treasury during the last year has
been increased, it has been done in
the face of extraordinary expendi
tures. These expenditures of an
unusual character have been as fol
lows: 1. That occasioned by a thorough
and comprehensive investigation of
every available means for increasing
the public water supply at a cost of
2. The purchase and laying of
new water mains, bvdrauts. etc. at a
cost of S2.910.10.
3. The installation of public
street lighting at a cost of S930.oO.
4. The survey and establish
ment on the principal streets of per
manent grades, with a view to the
future improvement of such streets,
at a cost of 5203.50.
While this has been done, the dis
bursements for tho purchase of new
equipment for the fire department,
of a city safe and other property, in
constructing street crossings eta,
have been unusually large.
Although the expenditures set
forth above in the items covering
the investigations for increasing the
water supply any surveys of streets
for grading purposes, have been
made solely to arrive at and present
to the public in an intelligent man
ner the cost and advantages of such
projected works, the manner in
which both projects have been re
ceived by the public leaves but lit
tle doubt that such improvements
will bo accomplished facts before
the close of the present year. Both
are urgently required, the. only
problem remaining is by what
means and the cheapest manner in
in which each can be secured.
In additien to the exercise of the
same rigid economy which has char
acterized your official acts during
1897, 1 deem it wise to suggest that
during the present year every effort
be made by you,
1. To permantly Eettle tho ques
tion of future water supply ot the
2. To thoroughly investigate
and decide on the practicability of
a public sewerage system, and
6. To inaugurate an intelligent
system of street grading, which is
greatly needed, and wmcn delay
constantly tends to make more coin
plicated and difficult of settlement.
In endeavoring to carry these sug
gestions into effect T would advise
that every effort be made to secure
tho cc operation and assistance of
our fellow citizens bv inviting their
active aid and advice. During the
last year they have shown a most
commendable spirit toward aiding
the city government in advancing
any measure that might benefit the
municipality. Everything possible
should bo done to encourage this
feeling and to remove tho erroneous
but too prevalent idea that, once
elected, the duties and obligations
of the voter ceases toward public
officials, and instead everv citizen
should be made to feel that such of-1
ficials constitute merely the machin
ery to carry into effect'tue policies
most advantageous to all, aud in the
shaping of which policies tho best
results can only be secured by every
citizen taking a vigilant and activo
interest in publio affairs no matter
how seemingly small such affairs
"With a view to promoting more
general and universal interest in the
city's political well-being, not the
least accomplished during the year
1S97, were the amendments secured
by legislative enactment to the city
charter, which provide:
1. For granting tho right of sui-

"A. P. Smith reports that when he
andhis companions wore on thoir
way out from Dawson, they wit
uessed the most beautiful sight he
ever saw in tno Heavens. It was in
November, aud he said that the sun
would barely show itself above the
horizon till it would again retreat
below it and ramain hidden for twenty-one
or twenty-two hours. Day,
including twilight, would last only
about three or four hours. In the
early morning hours, on several
nights, ho said, a most brilliant 1 ight,
of various hues, occurred in the
heavens. He said he could describe
it only as having the appearance of
an immense umbrella, with ita tau
ter directly overhead and ita sides
extending down in streams of light
to within a short distance of the
horizon. 1 ho outer edges of it were
not even, but appeared just liko tho
ribs of au umbrella with the slightly
curving edge ot tne cioin Deiween
them, only that the entire thing was
composed of streaks of light. At

convinced them that tho singularly
beautiful phenomenon was uone
other than the Aurora Boreal is, or
what is known as northern lights.
Mr. Smith said he had frequently
seen this phenomenon at his old
Indiana notno, out seeing only a
small portion of it, there was no
comparison to it as witnessed near
the Arctic Circle, whore they were at
Speaking of the native dogs used
in transportation in that country, he
says that they do not know anything
but work. That they have none of
the instincts or nature of domestic
animal found in lower latitudes and
have no special affection for their
master or owner more than for an
entiro stranger. They are good
uatured and work well, out are
friendly to every one. They have to
be coustantlv chained up, though,
to proveut them from running away,
as he says thoy are smart enough to
realize tnat their lot is to work, and
try to eecapo ft whenever opportu

A FATAL ACCIDKST.

consent of the Indians to the prop
ositions must be obtained a big
conference was held at San Carlos
on February 8. Although some of
the chiefs had previously been op
posed to the railroad being built, at
this meeting after the law of con
gress was read and explained to
them it was found that the Indians
were practically unaLimous in favor
of giving their consent for the build

The principal chiefs aud tho rep
resentatives of the railroad agreed
upon the amount which the railroad
will have to pay. It will be between
$7,000 aud nO.UOO to the Indians as
a tribe, with additional payment for
anv damage done to cultivated
lands, ditches, fences and roads. On
Monday night loOO Indians were
feasted by the railroad people, and

Train Wrecker Worden Confeoe.
San Frencisco.Feb. 8. Salter D.
Wordon, convicted of wrecking a
mail train bearing a guard of United
States soldiers near Sacramento
during the great railroad strike in
1894, and in whoso behalf the su
preme court of the United States
declined to take favorable action on
his plea fer a new trial, has con
fessed bis crime to Governor Budd,
with a view to recoiving a commu
tation of the dea'h sentence from
the executive of the state.
Worden's confession covers 3,700
words and gives the full details ol
crime, telling that he with several
others had been ordered by a com
mittee of strikers to remove the
rails near tho Yolo bridge for the
purpose of wreckijg the train car
rying troops. He gives the names
of his accomplices aud makes
known many details of the work of
the strikers heretofore unknown to
the geueral publio.

that six months would not elapse
before even his friends would
be compelled to acknowledge it. At
that time the financial standing of

was freely predicted It would soon

There seems to be some friction
between the sheriff's office and G.
Arthur Allen, one of the attorneys
for James Parker, according to an
application filed in the district court
today. Attorney Allen applies for a
mandamus against tho sheriff to
compel that official to permit him to

the purpose ot interviewing and

may desire to do so.

convicts at tne prison, xnis con
tract had been declared to be of
binding force by the supreme court
of the territory! and the appeal to
the supreme court of the United
States had been made in so bungling
a manner that there was little doubt
but that the case would be set aside
as soon as reached by that tribunal.
Governor McCord at once set him
self to try to secure certain modifi
cations of the contract, which lie
succeeded in doing and which made
the contract, in the opinion of all
unprejudiced minds, a fair one, the
enforcement of which would re
dound to tho credit of the territory.
For the last three months the
prisoners have been earning about
$70 per day by working on the cans!
payable in water rights. It is be
lieved these water rights will be
worth par, but whether they are or
not they will be worth something,
and as it costs the territory no
morn to work the prisoners than it
does to maintain them in idleness
and as the result of their labor will
result in building a large canal that
will bring under cultivation many
thousands of acres of the finest lands
in the territory, the result will be
beneficial to the territory whether
the water rights are valuable or not.
As a result of this labor being per
formed by the prisoners a million
dollars worth of taxable property
will at least be added to the tax
When Governor McCord assumed
control of affairs he found $20,393 of
unpaid debts that bad been con
tracted by his predecessor that
ought to have been paid. He found
the public institutions run down to
the lowest ebb and he found territo
rial warrants selling at 85 cents on
the dollar and the market for them
He found an issue ol $3U0.00U of
territorial bonds on the market and
hawked about in every broker's shop
from St. Louis to Chicago and New
York and even in London with no
buyers. Governor Franklin made a
trip to New York at the expense of
the territory to sell the bonds, but
did not sell them. Secretary Bruce
made a trip to New York to sell the
bonds, but did not sell them. Treas
urer Cole made a trip to New York
at the expense of tho territory to
sell the bonds, but did not sell them.
Finally the bonds were sent to Lon
don and returned unsold at an ex
pense of over $lrS00 to the territory.
In this attempt to sell the bonds
$5,463 was expended.
Soon after Governor McCord came
in an offer was made to the loan
commission to take this very issue of
bonds at par and accrued interest
by responsible parties and the bonds
would have been sold had it not
been for certain vexatious law suits
instituted by parties who desired to
ruin the credit of the territory by
repudiating a part of its debts or
the debts of certain counties which
would have the same result.
The supreme court of the terri
tory has now decided that this very
issue of the bonds is valid and the
bonds are substantially sold and the
transfer will soon be made.
The expenses for running the ter
ritorial government for the last six
months, notwithstanding the $20,393
of old debts that came over from
the Franklin administration, and
notwithstanding the dilapidated
condition of the public institutions,
was several thousand dollars less
than the prior six mouths. This is
the result of economical business
and honest methods inaugurated by
