RAPID CENSUS WORK.
Statistics of Manufactures for
the Twelfth Census in Hands
of Public Printer.
The fiual copy of the statistics of
manufactures for the twelfth census
has gone to the public printer, and
Director Merriam exacts to have the
report iu print liefore the 1st of July,
which is an unprecedented event in
census history. The census of manu
factures is the most difficult and com
plicated of all the census work, but
this year it has been done with very
little friction or confusion, and the
returns are presented iu a scientific
as well as a simple manner.
The general statistics for the sev
eral states and for the leading indus
tries were available for public use
several month j ago, and have beeu
published iu the form of bulletins
from time to time so that students
and other persons iuterested have
had the lxnefit of them already. The
manufacturing statistics of the cen
sus of 1S50 were not printed uutil
IS.".'.); those of 1860 were delayed until
I860; those of 1870 were" printed in
1N72; those of 1880 appeared at va
rious dates Ix-tween 18S-'1 and 1888.
while the volume?, on manufactures
for the census of 1890 did not appear
Mr. North, who has charge of the
manufacturing division, is of the
opinion that under the xTinaueut
census plan, with some changes iu
the methods of collecting information
which experience has suggested, only
one vear will ixj uecessarv nereaiier
to obtain, compile aud publish the
information contained in the enor
mous volumes which embrace the re
sults ot his work, tie thinKs a goou
deal of time can Iw gained aiso by
Ix'ginning the canvass on the first of
lanaarr rather than the first of June,
because nine-tenths of the manufac
turing establishments close their

Cowboys and Rustlers Have a Two
Hours' Pitched Battle in Which
Five Are Killed,
An Ambush Planned Which
Disastrous to the Parties
Engaged In It.
Oue of the bloodiest fights which
has occurred for years took place
last week near Tucumcari, New
Mexico, between cowboys and rus
tlers, in which five of the latter were
killed. TheAmarillo Champion gives
the following version of the battle:
"About four weeks ago when we
wrote up the Tucumcari killings, we
stated that we expected to publish
news from Tucumcari that would put
that afTair in the shade. Oue day
last week Sam Gholson, now located
ah tut twentv miles from Tucumcari,
but formerly of Lubbock county, be
came aware that he was being
stalked by a baud of meu who had
left their horses in a canyon aud hid
themselves at a water hole where Mr.
Gohlson was going to pub out some
bogged cattle. Mr. Gohlson called
oue of bis men, named Bud Lee, who
took a Winchester and rode between
the would-Le aaaaaaaai an 1 their
horses, and Mr. Gohlson got to the
top of a hill atxiut six or seven hun
dred yards away from the water hole
and with a loug range rifle he com
menced to pump lead iuto the men,
who were in plain sight. Mr. Gohl
son is a splendid shot, so he killed
five of the men outright aud wounded
the other five, two of whom have
died since the battle, so the Cham
pion is informed. The battle raged
for nearly two hours before the
wounded men surrendered, too badly
wounded to make resistance. The
woiiuded men have been taken to
jail and the ileid men buried.
Neither Lee nor Gohlson were in
jured, but Lee had a close call, as the
horn was shot off his saddle as he
rode to cut the men off from their
horses. This liattle is a continuation
of a feud of three mouths ago, when
two men were killed in eastern New
Mexico. We hope to be ablo to give
further particulars next week. It is
claimed that this battle virtually
wijxs out an organized band of cat
tle rustlers whose depredations, ex
tended through the whole of eastern
New Mexico and southeastern Col

COL. BRODIE'S ARRIVAL.

H. Smaliey of Tucson, who will be
his private secretary, and they were
busily engaged yesterday afternoon
Colonel and Mrs Brodie are stop
ping at the Sixth Aveuue hotel, but
as son as possible they will take a
house. There is naturally cousiiler
erable speculation regarding the dis
tribution of offices under the incom
ing administration. There have beeu
imnrj rumors concerning the filling
of the ollices, but Colouel Brodie has
so far neither con firmed nor denied
them. It is ouly certain that Mr.
Smaliey will Ix private secretary.
Colonel Brodie's friendship dates
from the campaign of the colonel for
congress four years ago, when Mr.
Smaliey made a tour of the territory
with him in the capacity of corre
spondent. Mr. Smaliey is not only
a good newspaper man, but is an ex
pert stenographer and has had con
siderable experience in public affairs.

B. A. Packard Marries.
Hon. B. A. Packard, the Cochise
county statesman and stockman. gave
a genuine surprise party to his many
friends in the territory by committing
matrimony. Mr. Packard is a gen
tleman whom it would be an honor
for any woman to capture, but few of
his friends ever thought that the
question of matrimony was ever seri
ously considered by him. The for
tunate woman in the case was Mrs.
Carlotta Holbrook. a long time resi
dent of Tucson. They were married
at the Methodist parsonage of the
above city on Wednesday night.
Mr. Packard is one of the best
known men in the territory. He has
served two terms in the territorial
legislature from Cochise county and
is engaged extensively in stock rais
ing. He is interested with W. C.
Greene in a number of enterprises in
southern Arizona and is the owner of
some of the finest horses in the ter
ritory. His bride is very popular in
social circles in Tucson.

These atmospheric poisons are breathed into the lungs and taken np

Chills and fever, chronic dyspepsia, torpid and enlarged liver, kidney

Malaria. Noxious gases and unhealthy matter collect in the system because
the liver and kidneys fail to act, and are poured into the blood current until
it becomes so polluted and sluggish that the poisons literally break through
the skin, and carbuncles, boils, abscesses, ulcers and various eruptions of an
indolent character appear, depleting the system, and threatening life itself.
The germs and poisons that so oppress and weaken the body and destroy
the life-giving properties of the blood, rendering it thin and watery, must
be overcome and carried out of the system before the patient can hope to
get rid of Malaria and its effects.
