'Poor Shooting. As we were com
iug across ibe ean J lota the other eveotDf,
after spending a couple of very agreeable
hours at the adobt residence of the Wid
Jacfesoc, some would be OEaessin.who
was in biding, fired six bullets at us from
a revolver. We ihii.k it was Tom Bige
low. We think to, because Tom has
shot at everybody in this town and never
hit anyone. He didn't hit us. Being
armed only with a bowie knife, we lit
out as foon as ibe shooting begun, and
the last bullet wett 10 feet above our
We did th'nk i f hunting Tom up jes
ter Jay and splittit g bis tar niiu a bullet
as a great moral lesson, but on second
thought we concluded not to waste the
time. He'll keep on blazing away around
this town until somebody gets veied at
the noise and then he'll suddenly go hence.
We don't want bis funernl expenses on
our bauds "
He's a Subscriber Last week, as
noticed by our cotrmporary in a double
leaded article with three scire-heads on
it, Jim Renshaw, who owns the cactus
ranch out on the T uscon road, refused to
take bis copy of the Kicker out of the
postoffice. Jim not only owed his $1.5U
subscription, but refused bis paper to
hurt our feelings. He's been sore on us
everinc9 we refused to lend him our
white shirt the only one in town to
go on a drunk in.
"We want to fhow an accommoda
ting spirit to all, and we have the name
of being a good-feilov, but we want to
say right here and now that we believe a
common wool shirt is plenty good enough
for any man in this town to get drunk
in. If it isn't, be'il better sUy tober.
"When we saw Jim's little game we
mounted our mule and rode over to in
terview bim. He was expecting us. One
bullet went througi our bat and another
raked our mule, but after that Jim lay
down and we dug the bullet out of his
shoulder and beli ed him into big due
out. He not only paid us a'.l arrears in
spot cash, but a dollar on advance sub
scription. and as boon as able to move
about be will personally canvas for sub
scribers." "We Shall Get Therk. Last Friday
evening we were nominated for mayor on
the democratic tick) t by acclamation, and
this is equivtlent to an election. We don't
deny that we sougb t the nomination. We
have bad our eye on it for a year past.
We shall also do our level best to snow our
opponent under. Ve have been moved to
this course by a desire to see the town well
governed and because we believe the
mayor should he the representative man
of the town. We are that man. There's
no use in filling and backing and talking
about modesty and self-conceit and all
that. We lead this town. We kuow
more than an 7 10 men in it rolled together.
We shall make tbe best mayor the town
has ever bad, and we shall see tat all tbe
city printing is given to tbe Eicker at legal
"DowiJED Again. When the new ad
ministration came iu we wanted to be
postmaster. We were eminently fitted
for the place. Instead of giviDg it to us
Mr. Wanamaker aptiointed a creature who
goes by the name of Hank Scott. A more
unfit man could not have been found in
Arizona. Hank knew bow we felt, and
be set out to make it pleasant for us. In
side of two weeks hi knifed us in tbe leg
and we stot bim in tbe shoulder, ttince
then Hank and us have bad a shooting
bee at least once a raontb, and on two
occasions we left him for dead. He's as
slow on tbe shoot as he is in sorting tbe
Saturday afternoon we entered the post
office with tbe comr. laints of 31 subscri
bers wbo had failed to get last week's pa
per. Hank had no doubt taken them
home to put under a carpet, which his
extravagant wife bis lately got from
Denver. HDk was watchinif for us
with his head at tbe ?nea' delivery win
dow, and we have the testimony of half
a dozen gen'lemen that be bepan shoot
ing first. We wanted to arpi e. but Le
kept pulling tbe trigger n - knocking
tbe buttons 3 our r-w fall n t, tud we
finally bad to wine him in ctlf-defene.
He isn't badly hurl and w II be as good
as new a month hence.
"While we did banker to be postmts
ter, and while we do honestly believe
that Hank Scott doesn't know enough to
string dried apples, we don't like there
incidents. They detract from a man's
dignity and help give our town a hard
name. We hope Hank will change his
tactics after be gets around again. This
is tbe third or fourth time we've hid to
pump lead into bim, and we don't like to
do it. It gives outsiders tbe idea that we
are a street-brawler instead of a quiet,
peaceable edit r with tbe beet interests
of the country at heart."
