Lost Their Boat, Clothing and
The Trl-il of n Cmiplo of rtny Offi
cers Who Attempted to Multo
u Trip Through this Canyon
IJolotv Diamond Creole.
Lieutenants Davis and Potter, of tlio
U. S. army, with their guides, Barney
Weaver and John Goldy, arrived at
Yuma last Thursday by boat from
Needles. The nnny officers had been
assigned the duty of inspecting thu
river from Black Canyon to Yuma
with a view to improving the naviga
tion. They met with nothing of any in
terest from Needles south waid, but
on the liist part of their trip they 'had
e.eitemeiil and danger uhough to last
them thu lest of thuir lives.
Their boat, which weighed 850
pounds, was sunt by rail to 1'eaeh
Springs and from there by wagon 22
miles to Diamond creek. This is 200
miles farther up thu river than re
quired for- their purpose, but they
wanted to seu some of the scenery of
thu Grand Canyon.
Thu boat, supplies and men had to
be lowered down the sides of the can
yon. 1 he discovery was at once made
that the boat was not adapted for the
voyage, being a keel boat, narrow and
heavy. In a short time the craft be
came utterly unmanageable and every
moment threatened to bo the last.
They were bumped on the rocks.
thrown against the sides of the cannon,
dieuehed with sprat, and shot through
gorges with the rapidity of an e.pre
train. With salvation out of sight,
tlieie was apparently nothing but cer
tain death ahead of them; above io",i
t lie perpendicular wall tliousauds of
feet. Still the boat kept in thu water
for 17 teriiblu miles, when a rock v
rapid was reached. Quick as light
ning the boat tossed bottom upward,
lolled over and over mid finally
mislied to pieces. The four men
struggled to save thuir live; it was
Useless, to try to save anything else.
Strange to sa), none of them were
hurt, and they reached a place of
safety. At oncu their dangerous situ
ation foiced itself on their minds; lieiu
the) wcie, without prut isions and shut
in to meet their death by starvation.
The Malted down the canton hoping
to find a trail by which they could get
out. After many a weary mile the
men decided to follow some of the
iheep Hails, only a few inches widu in
places. Success attended their efforts,
although at limes they hung bctweeu
water and sky on thu siduof thu bluffs.
Occasionally strength seemed to fail,
but a sight of thai awful chasm below
wits sufficient. At lust thu top was
reached, but they were delivered from
thu totrors of thu canyon only to li nil
themselves in a desert. They struck
out biately, knowing that thuy had
only to keep going to reach thu rail
road again. At llackbcrry station foui
Inggaid, ragged, dirty and almost
shoeless niuu dropped down to wait for
thu next train. They reached Needles
again to rtst and relit fur thu voyage
Thu ollleers had plenty of warning
of thu dangerous nature of their pro
posed trip. They will hereafter, per
haps, not undertake a trip iuto unox
ploied legions when not iu line of
their duty. Thu voyage- from the
Needles to Yuma took four days and
was so entirely devoid of interest as
to bo monotonous. Yuma Bee, Nov.

Ou December 25, 1892, Thomas Col

at his trading post, 125 miles northeast
of this place, and near tho Navajo res
ervation. Collins made hi- escape,
and made his way to Gold Basin in
Mohave county, whero he found em
ployment in the mill of the Gold Basin
Mining Company. He changed his
name to Win. Arnutt, and had been
there about a month when he shot and
killed a fellow workman. He was ar
rested, tried and found guilty of man
slaughter and sentenced to Yuma for
It was not until after Arnutt was iu
Yuma several mouths before it was
discovered that he was not Arnutt but
Thos. Collins, thu slayei of Sam Dit
tenholTcr. Saturday Gov. Hughes
pardoned Arnett to restore him to
citizenship as his time would expire iu
a few days.
A grand jury of this county had iu
March 1892 found an indictment
against Collins, and a few dajs ago
Under Sheriff Fairchild left with a
warrant for Collins, and he took him
iuto custody as soon as he stepped
from the prison gate. The arrest was
not expected by Collins as he had sup
posed that he was safe, and under the
uame of Arnett he would not bu
recognized. IIu will bo brought to
this place and his trial will in all
probability take place at tho December
session of District com t.
There is more catarrh iu this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the hst few
j ears was supposed to bo incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it n lo2.il disease, and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cute with local treat
ment, pi ijiiouuccd it incurable. Science
has proven catarrh to bo a constitu
tional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca
tanh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney ie Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on thumaiket.
It is taken internally in doses from ten
drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly
ou the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system. They offer one bundled
dolhus for an) case it fails to cure.

An Important Olllce.
To properly lill its office and func
tions, it is important that the blood be,
pure. When it is in such a condition,
the body is almost certain to be healthy.
A complaint at tins time is catarrh in
some of its various forms. A slight
cold develops the disease In tho head.
Droppings of corruption passing into
the luugs bring on consuption. The
only way to euro this disease is to
purify thu blood. Thu most obstinate
cases of catarrh yield to the medicinal
poweis of Hood's Karsaparilla as if by
magic, simply because it reaches the
seat of thu disease, and by purify ing
and vitalizing the blood, removes the
cause. Not only does Hood's Sarsa
l arilla do this but it gives renewed
vigor to tliu whole system, making it
possible for good health to reign su

One milk vendor iu Tucson uublush

of the lacteal fluid. The best he sells
for forty cents a gallon, the second
best for thirty eents aud the third class
for twenty-five cents per gallon. Tho
first grade is probably at near pure as
his conscience will let him make it;
thu second is merely dashed with a

Thu Phoenix militia company claims
tho only distinguished sharpshooter in
the territory, but as tuo score was
completed after tho 16th of October,
upon which date tho shooting year
closed, it will be a great injustice to
tho other companies iu Jbo territory to
allow any scores made after that date.
Lieutenant Coggins is undoubtedly one
of the best shots in the service. He is
thoroughly posted upon the regulations
governing the rille practice and had lie
made his scores within the allotted
period every militiaman in the terri
tory would gladly accord him tho
honor. As tbe caso now stands it is
slightly different. Tempo News.
