Robert E. Stevens wero discharged
from custody, tho evidenco having
been insufficient to hold them.
It was shown by the prosecution
that White had disposed of a number
of stamps about town nnd had sent
some of them away for clothing and
various articles. It was nlso asserted
that ho had burnt somo stamps that
looked as if they had boon stricken
with small germs of dynamite.
Miss Irene accounted for the $68
worth of stamps found in her 'posses
sion by the assertion that she had
bought ihom for $1 from a man who
looked like John Lyons.
John W. Ross appeared in behalf of
all the prisoners but Lyons, who dis
played considerable ability as a law
yer. He claimed it was a case of mis
taken identity nnd that ho was out of
tho town of illiams and County of
Coconino at the timo he was said
to have been dealing in stamps.

SAVED A LIFE.
ThoXoblc Heroism of Thomas Walsh,
William Frederick met with a tick
lish experience one night last week.
Ho was riding along a cow trail and
when ho reached tho railroad track his
horse refused to budge. An approach
ing freight train rati down the animal
and killed it.
According to the young man's story,
ho attempted to catch the train, witli
the purpose of riding to Walnut, but
ho alleges that the crew waved him a
farewell and .told him that he could
easily walk to Flagstaff, as tho distance
was only three miles. Tho distance
was really twelve miles, and Frederick,
with his saddle upon his back, set out
on his dreary walk. Tho uight was
hitter cold, and his limbs soon became
numbed nnd lifeless. Ho had lain down
to diu out iu the snow when found by
Trackwalker Thomas Walsh, and it is
to thai gentleman's heroism that the
young man owes his life. Walsh lifted
the almost unconscious man upon his
back and struggled on with his burden
to town, a distance of fully tivo miles
It was at first feared that Frederick
would lose his feet, but Dr. Branuen,
tho attending physician, says he will
bring him around all right with the
possible loss of somo of tho toes.

AT THE WORLD'S FAIR g
A brood of sinless chickens were the
cause of Thomas Talbot, nurse at the
hospital, being brought into the little
hencoop court on tho charge of using
most fearful language toward a woman.
It transpired that Mr. Talbot, a rather
distinguished looking type of the Eng
lish aristocrat whose conversational
powers are somewhat exaggerated with
the hard sound of "h," had waylaid a
barn in the neighborhood and was
about to mako an assault upon the
breastworks of the hennery when the
owner of the premises demanded to
know the why and wherefore. Mr.
Talbot, being slightly deaf, the mis
understanding was all tho more pro
nounced, and it was alleged that he
then and there used the most villain
ous nay fowl epithets that ever came
out of tho mouth of man.
The court room was crowded to the
roof and spectators stood on the stove
to hear the exciting details. Pale,
nervous, yet dlgnilied and serene, the
prisoner at the bar related the pathetic
tale of how he bad nurtured the little
chicks from their infancy ,a how lie had
watched each feather grow upon their
little bodies, until they gradually grew
to the dignity of pullets. Then he
somehow neglcr.tcd them for awhile,
but although they were not branded,
he knew that the fowls he was after
Saturday were tho identical chicks he
had nursed so tenderly. The defend
ant spoke in a gently modulated, mel
lifluous tone of voice that seemed to
carry conviction with it, but the jurv,
which was composed of an awful tough
looking lot of men, did uot convict.
Notwithstanding the eloquent appeal
of the district attorney for the uphold
ing of the dignity of the law, the jury
said not guilty, and tho hens are still
in their coop.

At the hospital yesterday afternoon
Dr. Helm succeeded in extracting the
knife blade that had deen driven into
the rirht hip of H. D. Adam; out at the
Agua Fria recently. The point of the
blade broke off on the bone, ami in
being withdrawn by the fin-ion? ass lil
ant, was again broken so that it lodged
in the lpg of his trousers, whore it was
subsequently found. Nothing but the
handle remained with tho attacking
party when he cea3cd his onslaught.
The coming of tho north and south
railroad'to Tucson, said a mining ex
pert from the east yesterday, will be
the signal for the development of tho
many copper claims which the owners
are uot working because of tho high
price of fuel. When the now road com
petes with the Southern Pacific you
will see a big cut iu freight rates. It
is no easy matter to induce cipitil to
take hold of copper propertits of this
section and erect great reduction works
when it costs so much to lay down coke
at the mines. Star.
Seml-oftlcially, yet authentically, it
is learned that February 15 a restrict
ive quarantine will be placed on the
importation of cattle from Mexico into
the United State3. No reason in par
ticular is given for the action; disease
is not claimed to any dangerous extent.
All that is known is that tho lower
duty on cattle will not serve to admit
10 this country other than cattlo in
tended for immediate consumption.
Feeders are prohibited. Inasmuch as
no fat cattle are ever brought across
tho line, this amounts to a perfect ex
clusion act. Gazette.
There is a tradition among the In
dians of this country that when heavy
rains fall in January a weed springs
up in February which i very poison
ous to stock. Joseph C. Ferry, who
has just returned from Tucson, reports
the loss of a very valuable 3-year-old
colt which he had on pasture near Bul
lock's ranch near Agua Caliente. Mr.
Bullock has lost some twenty odd
horses by the same disease. It is sup
posed that they had eaten a poisonous
weed of somo description. The In
dians say that the heavy rains last
month have started this weed and the
horses have eaten it. Republican.
John Roach, who lias for several
weeks been in charge of the storo at
Alma where the Doll tragedy occurred,
had a lively experience on Monday, ac
cording to a letter leceived last night
from Mammoth by Harry B.irnhart.
Along in the day three Mexicans called
at tbe&torn and tried to hold up Roach,
who grabbed his pistol and opened
lire. A bullet struck ono of the would
be robbeis and the others ran away.
Roach, fearing they would get
help and return (o the store and mur
der him. hurried to Mammoth, where
he got assistance. When he got b.ick
to Uio store he found that timing his
absence the Mexicans had visited tho
place and that the cash drawer, in
which tbi re was thirty-five dollars, had
been cleaned out. Mr B.irnhart says
that many of the Mexicans in that sec
tion are desperate enough lo do any
thing. The fellow who was shot is
now under the care of a dnelnr at
Mammoth. His wound is a serious,
but uot necessarily a fatal one Suu
