DISTINGUISHED VISITOR IS

Old Timers Get Him First at Train and
Let Reception Committee Wait a
While Will Bo Shown Through City
and Mines. Will Talk Tonight.
The first visit of Hon. Ralph II. Cam
eron to the new city of Globe left with
him an impression of the. hospitality of
its people that ho will not soon forget.
His reception was of a non-partisan na
ture, tho republicans of the city turn
ing out in numbers to greet their stand
ard bearer at the depot upon his arrival,
and many democrats joining in tho re
ception which was informally tendered
him at the Dominion hotel, all uniting
in tho warmth of good fellowship and
greeting to one of Arizona's prominent
Mr. Cameron was approached by a
Silver Belt representative, but he
stated that ho did not come here at
this time to give out an interview nor
talk politics, but his visit was to renew
old acquaintances and meet the people
of the city. He had not been in Globe
since the early days when it was a
strugglinfg infant among the settle
ments of the territory and ho was much
surprised to find a city here twice the
size of Prescott and forging to the front
rank among tho cities of the territory.
Some of the older settlers were among
those who met Mr. Cameron at the de
pot and they took iKissession of him for
a few minutes, leaving the waiting re
ception committee in the 'background.
It was a genuinely hcaiy reception that
the northern man received, and a tribute
to his standing among old-time friends
who have known him for many years.
From the depot, Mr. Caincrnn was es
corted to the Dominion hotel, where the
dining hall was pressed into service to
rcceivo the republican condidatc for
delegate to congreft; and his friends.
Tables were spread and refreshments
served, all available space in tho large
dining hall being taken by those aux
ions to meet Mr. Cameron. Among the
guests were Hon. George J. Stoncman
and Hon. Wiley E. Jones, democratic
leaders of Globe, who entered, whole
.soulcd, into tho evening's pleasures.
Hon. M. McCarthy, executive commit
tceman of tho republican territorial
committee, acted as master of cere
monies, and President Ralph Sturgis of
tho Taft Sherman club presented Mr.
Cameron, who mado a short address.
Mr. Cameron said he was glad to re:
turn to Globe and meet its citizens,
amongst whom he counted many warm
personal friends. He rof rained from
talking politics and thanked tho citi
zens of Globe for their warm friendship
Music was furnished by the Suter or
chestra, comprising the Misses Bertha,
Emma and Eva Suter and Walter Suter,
and numbers of selections were render
ed with that excellent talent this young
Globe orchestra is so much appreciated
for. Billy Cummings sang and played
to the enjoyment of the gathering, and
the campaign quartet, composed of
Messrs. Conboy, Mcrritt, Wales and
Reardon, sang a nuniber of songs that"
brought down the house.
Tho icecption was informal and to
an extent non-partisan, and was ar
ranged on short notice as the local pco
plo were only informed yesterday of
Mr. Cameron's coming on last night's
train. There were no set speeches, al
though there were present some of Gila
county's orators who might have en
livened 'the evening, but Mr. Cameron
did not desire a partisan or political
reception, his main wish being to meet
the citizens of Globe. Later on ho will
return for a republican rally and will
enter into the issues of tho campaign.
However, tonight at the Bijou the
ater on Oak street, he will attend the,
regular mooting of the Taft-Sherman
club, and it is announced that he will
talk upoi tho issues of the campaign.
It was not his intention to open his
campaign at this time but tho club
members have pursuaded him to ad
dress them, and othor local speakers will
participate in the speech-making of the
evening. It will be nn open meeting
and all ate invited to attend.
Today, Mr. Cameron will visit the
business Inen of tho city and will bo es
corted to the mines surrounding Globe
that can be visited during his day's
stay in his vicinity. Mr. McCarthy an
nounced the committee that will escort
Mr. Cameron to tho Old Dominion,

BUT PLURALITY IS
'Twas In 1892 that Cleveland Was Elected and Much is Made
of this Year's Figures, Considered Portenteous Throughout
United States Independence Party Polls Only. About 1000
Votes and Socialists and Prohibitionists Hold On
WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. September 1. Tho republicans won
tho cloctlon In Vermont today by carrying tho state for Lieutenant Gov
ernor Georgo H. Prouty of Newport, for governor by about 28,000 votes
over James E. Burke of Burlington, his democratic opponent.
Tho plurality was the smallest In any presidential year since 1892,
when It was only 17,950, and was followed by a democratic national vic
tory, but it was larger than in 1888, and only slightly less than In 1900.
There was a falling off In four years of about 8 per cent In the republican
vote, while tho democratic vote fell off about 2 per cent.
Tho independence league appeared for the first time and polled about
1000 votes, while tho prohibition and socialist vote remained about tho
An unusually large number of local candidates for membership in the
legislature, although bringing out a heavy vote and resulting In democratic
gains in the lower branch of tho legislature, apparently had no bearing on
tho gubernatorial fight.
As Vermont is the first state to vote during the presidential campaign,
there was much interest throughout tho country In tho size of the repub
lican plurality. The republicans retained complete control of the legisla
tive and executive branches of tho government.
Tho republicans elected to congress from the first district, David J.
Toster of Burlington for another term; and from tho second district Prank
Plumley of Northfield for the first time, and elected a majority of the
state legislature, which will select a successor to the late Senator Bedfield
Proctor. The stato ticket elected follows: Governor, George H. Prouty of
Newport; lieutenant governor, George A. Mead of Rutland; secretary of
state, Georgo W. Bailey of Essex; treasurer, Edwin H. Deavitt of Mont

VETERAN STOCK AND MARKET
MAN AGAIN ACTIVELY EN
GAGED IN BUSINESS ONE OF
GELA COUNTY'S SOLID MEN.
Today the Pioneer Meat Market
passes to the management of Max
Bonne, the well known cattle and mar
ketman. Mr. Bonne is one of the most
substantial business men in this section
of Arizona and his connection with the
Pioneer gives it a solidity that it has
never before enjoyed.
Mr. Bonne has been a resident of
Globe and Gila county for a number of
years past and stands high as a citizen
and business man. For several years
he successfully conducted a market in
Globe, retiring a little over a year ago,
and going to his ranch in tho northern
part of the county, where he has boen
giving his extensive stock interests per
sonal supervision. The announcement
that Mr. Bonne is to return to Globe
and engage actively in the market busi
ness again will bo received with pleas
ure by the people, especially by his
many old friends and patrons. He will
maintain the reputation of the Pioneer
Market in a higher degree than ever,
and will always be in a position to give
patrons the best of meats and general

gro named Ralph Burton. It was this
assault, charged against Richardson,
and his arrest and removal to Blooming
ton that precipitated the recent bloody
cash register was gone and ran to the
street just in time to see the Mexican
making off with it.
That cash register is a small one, but
it weighs all of a hundred pounds, and
nothing like a good foot race was to be
thought of while carrying it. The thief
dropped the machine and took to his
heels like a scared deer. Tho register
was broken in the fall, but not beyond
repair, and Jim Lee is congratulating
himself that the enterprising marauder
did not carry off the cook stove.

OAKLAND, September J. The most
startling feature yet developed in tho
sensational Donahue murder case came
this afternoon, when Mrs. John Lau-
meister, the wife of tho former sheriff
of San Francisco, told Captain Peterson
of the police force, that the accused of
the atrocious murderer of Mrs. Donahue
had tried to get her to poison her hus
band. She says Arkell advised her to give
him three tablespoonfuh of wood alco
hoi daily as a cure for the drinking
habit. Being ignorant of its poisonous
qualities, she was a"bout to try it when
a friend interfered.
According to the police, she also told
them that Arkell, who was then known
as Ahlstodb, was infatuated with her
and tried to poison her husband so that
he might marry her.
She also stated that the man recom
mended that she use a drug known as
"Lilly of the Valley" for pains in the
heart. She was suspicious from tho
wood alcohol incident and did not do it.
Later, when she sougth to buy it for
a friend, the druggist told her that it
was deadly poison.
"He is a dangerous man," she con
tinued, "and if ono crosses him in the
least particular he is quick to draw
his pistol. On at least three occasions
