that great business center had never
liefore paid a visit to this section and
their only idea of the place was what
they had gathered from reading of it.
One of the party, a very wealthy gen

been further west than liiiafflo. was so
amazed at the distances in the great
west that he begun to give up all hoe
of ever reaching his destination.
The gentlemen composing the larty
are splendid repr. eutatives of the in
telligent, solid, wealthy business men
of the east, who when they take hold
of a proposition and are thoroughly
convinced of its merits, have the
means and intelligence to carry it to 1

Mr. Hinds was seen today by a
Journal-Miner man. Asked if he had
any statement to make in his own tie
half. "You may say." said Mr. Hinds,
"that no one could have been more
surprised than myself when Sheriff
Roberts informed me in Boston that I
was wanted in Prescott on a charge of
embezzlement. I had been requested
to go east by Mr. Mitchell on the bus
iness in which I was engaged at the
time of my arrest. I have never a
tempted to conceal my whereabouts as
I see the Journal-Miner has already
suggested, and was not. as the impres-
sion seemed to have been conveyed a
fugitive from justice. I had several
good deals well under way of consum
mation w hen I was arrested, and I had
intended to return to Prescott about
the first of February, as letters in
this city will prove. I have no spec
ial statement to make at this time,
further than I have no doubt of com-
iug out of the trouble all right. I
wish. also, to say that Sheriff Roberts
treated me with the utmost considera
tio and like a perfect gentleman and
I came with him gladly as I felt no
fear for the consequences."
Sheriff Roberts verified the state
meuts of Mr. Hinds and said he acted
like a gentleman all the way and did
not seem to be attempting to conceal
i himself and when arrested accompa
nied him willingly.
Mr. Hinds was brought before Jus
tice Talbot this afternoon and the
case set for hearing on Saturday. Feb

There are always to be found iu every '

particular complaint made by the w.
b. this time is that postoffice hours
are not to his liking, and the asser
tion is made, which is not true, that
the mails are all in by noon.
The fact of the matter is that the
malls are not all in until about 5
o'clock, the mail from the P. &
E. road arriving aliout 4 ::ti and t he
stages arriving as late as ."i o'clock.
It would be impossible to fix an

Anyone familiar with the arrival of
mails must concede that the present
arrangement as nearly accommodates
all patrons of the office as any hour
which could be designated. The only
way to accommodate all would be to
keep it open all day.
The postoffice clerks work longer
hours as it is than almost any other
class of people, as the mails come
with just as much regularity on Sun
days and holidays as they do on any
other day, and the postmaster and his
clerks are required to lie there to take
care of them. Some jieople no doubt

Denver. Colo.. Jan. 22. The capital

to the presence of armed men in the
house chamber. The unfounded re
port that the national guard is ouCvr
orders from Governor Pea body and
had taken possession of the state
house probably had its origin in the
fact that House Sergeant at Arms
Plummer had posted thirty guards
to resist an anticipated attempt of
the supporters of Edward O. Wolcott,

capture the hall. On every desk is a
pair ot revolvers in the corner stands

London, Jan. 24. The reciprocity
treaty lietween Cuba and the United
States threatens to raise one of the

lietween Great Britain and the United
States which has occurred for years.
So much importance is attached to
the matter that a meeting of the crsSi
net is being specially summoned to
see what action can be taken in
the matter. It came to a head through
a deputation of the chamber of com
merce of the United Knigdom. which
waited upon Foreign Secretary Lands
towne yesterday. The argument was
i made that all advantages which the
! government gained by securing an op-
tion on sugar bounties will be lost if
the Cuban reciprocity becomes oper
ative. The treaty is considered as a
discrimination against all British pos-
! sessions in the West Indies.
