BANQUET AND BALL.
The Shriners Entertain in Royal
Style at the Opera House.
Last Tuosdny ovoning the resident
Nobles of tlie Mystic Shrino and Knight
Templars gave a uanco ana supper at
the opera house and, as might be ex
pected from such hosts, tho function
was an extremely brilliant and enjoy
able one. The opera house had been
gorgeously but tastefully decoratt-d
with bunting, flags, evergreens and
tho emblems of tho higher Masonic
degrees under tho direction of Mr.
About ninety people participated in
tho festivities of tho evening. The
Nobles were easllv recognized by the
Turkish Fez which each one wore in
addition to the conventional evening
clothes and the badgo of the order.
The Sir Knights wore the full uniform
which these soldiers of the Cross affect,
and most of the ladies were beautifully
Tho music was furnished by the Bis
bee orchpstra which was concealed in
an elevated bovver in tho center of the
Tho programs were unique aud at
tractive, tho covers being representa
tions of the Fez worn by tho Nobles of
Ij!l Zarlbah Touiplo and having a large
emblem of Arizona Commandery No. 1
on tho back. Most of the printed mat
ter was in Arabic but for the informa
tion of the noninltiate, some portions
were nrinted in everyday English.
At 11 o'clock tho guests were invited
to partake of bread and salt in the rec
tory. This seemed rather indefinite
until the drop curtain arose and reveal
ed the stage transformed into a mag
nificent dining room. Two long tables
were loaded with delicacies aud lav
ishly decorated with California flowers',
Turkish red ribbon and hemp ropes.
This latter innovation as a table deco
ration excited comment but is one of
those things concerning which the
Shriners smile and look wise while
other people ask questions which re
main unanswered. A noticeable fea
ture of the decoration was the cakes
which were covered with colored frost
ings representing the emblems of the
various Masonic societies. These, as
well as all else pertaining to the feast,
were the work of that queen of cater
ers, Mrs. CrossvP of the Bessemer
A large item towards the great sum
of tho world's happiness was contrib
uted by the Bisbee Shriners and
Knights on this occasion. Surely the
next best thing to being a Shriner is to
be a Shriner's guest. Among those
pressnt we noticed; .

New Episcopal Church to be Built.
The Rev. A. Elliott conducted the
services of the Episcopal church in Li
brary Hall last Sunday, no inform
ed the people that it was the wish of
the Bishop and all interested that the
vestry, members and friends of St
John's Mission and all societies con
nected therewith, should devote thoir
energies toward getting all the money
possible into tho church building fund
the present winter.
The Murry property, which is already
owned by the church, Is unquestion
ably the best site the town affords for a
building of that kind. The prgpos-ed St
John's church will be a large and hand
some gothlc edifice of brick and stone
The upper part, or church proper, will
be used, not only bj the Episcopal
church, but occasionally by the Greek,
Lutheran and other churchea in com
munion with the American church
The basement will contain a Sunday
school and society room which will be
used also tor a lecture room and for
services of different branches of the
Christian church which have no build
ing of their own but whose form of
service would not call for tho appoint
ments of tho upper part of tho build
ing. In thus providing ameeting placs
for all kinds of worshipers, the Episco
pal church demonstrates its true cath
olicity This kind of a church has long been
needed in Bisbee and merits the help
of all classes of citizens for it is calcu
lated to benefit all classes.
Charlie Suits came up fiotn Santa
Miguellta last Sundaj and returned on
Mondaj. Mr. Suits reports great min
ing development in that locality and
says that will become one of the most
prosperous sections In northern Mex
ico. The Copper Queen company have
about finished a large roaster that will
be used at Nacosarl. It is tho first
complete roaster turned out at the
foundry hero,.and baa kept tho foundry
force occupied night and day for a
month or so.
THE SOUTH WESTERN RAILROAD.
Tracklayino in Operation Between
Don Luis and Douglas Two
W,ork on the South Western Rail
road between Don Luis station, four
mllesi irom Bisbee and the town of
Douglas, near the Old Mexico line is
being' pushed forward as rapidly as
possible. The road as graded runs in a
south-easterly direction from Don Luis
station on the Arizona and South East
ern for a distance of twenty-one miles.
At this point the townsite of Douglas
has been located, the parties Interested
comprising the Bisbee Improvement
company. From this point the grade
runs a little north-east in the direction
of Separ, on the Southern Pacific, and
another survey crosses the line of Old
Motico going in the direction of Nac
Speculation is rife as tothe ultimate
connection of the eastern survey. The
El Paso papers are proclaiming In
black headlines the coming of the road
to the metropolis of the south-west,
while the Demlng people ere equally
confident that the connection of the
South Westetn Railroad will bo made
at that point. The fact remains that
several grading camps are at work in'
the San Simon valley and the survey
has been completed as far as Separ on
the S. P. As to the ultimate connec
tion of the now road there Is nothing
definite being given out at this point.
Work on the Nacosari connection in
Mexico is also being carried on and
with the completion of the two roads
undoubtedly a town of importance will
be established at the junction, which is
well located on the edge of the beauti
ful sulphur Spring valley with an
abundant supply of water close to the
surface. The Overlook townslte, com
prising one square mile, adjoins the
Douelas townsite on the west and
transactions in real estate in that vi
cinity are expected to assume mam
moth proportions in the near future.
With the building of the road to
Nacosari we may expect unusual activ
ity in the mining country through
which the road passes, and with the
bountiful supply of water obtainable at
the junction of the South Western and
Nacosari railroads, large reduction
works at that point is not an improb
ability. Tho business men of Bisbee certainly
gave thanks in the true spirit for th;
promising outlook for the future of this

Four Men Injured. Prompt Action of
foreman Averted Serious Calamity -
Last Saturday afternoon a cave in
occurred in the Copper Queen mine,
which, but for the foresight of Mr.
Clawson, foreman, loss of life would
have undoubtedly occurred. The In
Gibson, contusion about the hips;
Lee, C. M , left leg broken above the
knee, temporary paralysis of right leg;
White, E. A., cut In face and on back ;
Rafferty, Harry, elbow dislocated,
A cave in had been expected at this
point and the men working on the
lower set warned of the danger who
had vacated their places But for this
precaution these men would have been
burled beneath a mass of debris. The
men at work cu the upper set were also
on the look out for a cave in but it
came so suddenly they went down with
it. Mr. Raffertv, who was injured, was
not at work at this particular place but
went to the assistance of his comrades
and in attempting to throw them a rope
lost his balance and fell, dislocating
his elbow. The men were Immediately
rescued aud taken to the hospital. All
of the injured men will recover.
The Stag Club.
About half way up the hillside a. vis
itor in Bisbee can see a sign whioh
reads "The Stag Club." Have you
been there? The writer had the pleas
ure of eating his Thanksgiving dinner
as the guest of the "Stag Club." Of
course there is no place like home on
Thanksgiving but the members of tho
club have gained a warm spot in the
heart of the writer for the hospitable
reception and the magnificent dinner
which was set before us. The mem
bers of this club are all good fellows.
There is Sroufe, McCallahan, Hlckey,
Myers and a scoro of others who oan
make one feel at home. The visitors
on Thanksgiving were C. F. Nichols,
Jno. Campbell and Mr. Kelly. After
the cigars an Elks lodge was started
with fifteen signers, and as soon as the
number of fifty have been enrolled BIs
bef; will have an Elks club the equal
of any In tho BouthweBt.
John Vat pool, who is employed at
the Spmy shaft, while returning from
work Sunday afternoon was shot on the
bridge ust west of the smelter. Mr.
Vanpoyl was half-way across the
bridge when he felt a tinge in his right
arm and side He proceeded across
tho bridge and as far as the smelter
oflico whon ho fell. He was picked up
atd carried to the office of Dr. Sweet
where it was discovered he had been
shot in the arm and side by a small
bore rifle. The wound was dressed
and he was able to be sent home. Some
small boys who were out shooting on
tho afternoon of Thanksgiving are sup
pos id to have fired the shot,
The bullet was not extracted at it
was impracticable to reach it. The
case is considered a serious one though
not necessarily fatal,
School library Fund.
Teachers and pupils have been
greatly encouraged by the liberal do
nations to the library fund by both pa
trons and friends. A number of very
generous sums have been received, and
these with a great number of smaller
gifts have Increased tho fund to a cred
itable size. The following amounts
have been given by pupils of the dif

some, it should deter no one from tak

done so. The need is great und thci 0
is no danger of receiving more books
than can be used. A number of very
desirable volumes have been received
from home libraries Among this
number was a set of 20 volumes of
Marryat's works. Other persons who
have standard works which have served
their puppose in the home, are remind
ed that these books could be put into

Dragoon District. '
George D. Bernard, an old time
miner and pro9peetor, was in town on
Tuesday and from him we gathered a
few items of interest In regard to the
working of mines located in the south
end of the Dragoons.
H, Schmiedlag 1b pusulng the devel
opment work on his claims with a force
of eight men night and day. The ore
carries gold and copper. The shaft is
now at a depth of 300 feet and will be
continued to 500 feet and adrift started.
In this shaft a splendid body of ore was
encountered at a depth of 140 feet.
Jack Keffley, two miles distant, is at
work on bis claims.
The Signal Hill, owned by N. Angius
and Ed Bowman, is closed down at

Last Sunday morning as a locomolive
was returning from Don Luis statjon a
Mexican was discovered on the track
aud the engine brought to a full stop.
The man stood up and stepped to one
side and the engine started forward.
Just as it raaohed the Mexican he
lurched forward and was struck by the
footboard of the engine, sustaining a
compound fracture of the bones in the
right leg. He was also bruised about
the shoulder. Supt. Douglas ivas on
the engine at the time and had the
man brought to town and placed in tho
hospital. Investigation showed that
the man was uuder the influence of
liquor at the time the accident oc
curred. If this had been known by the
taainmen at the time the accident
would probably have been avoided.
It Is reported and believed here, says
the Safford correspondent of the Star,
that active work will begin In the coal
fields very soon, as It is known that
Senator Hanna and other eastern cap
italists, who were busy with election
affairs, are interested in the deal, and
now that the excitemeut of the politi
cal battle ie over, it is expected that
the plans that have been formulated
for the development of the coal mines
will be carried out.
A shooting scraptt occurred in front
of a Clifton hotel, Clifton, Ariz., late
Friday night. A couple of Mexicans
were trying to steal a watermelon from
the fruit stand uear the bridge. The
keeper of the stand remonstrated,
when one of them pulled a gun and
shot the old man through the leg, after
which both of them made their escape
out of town. The wound Is not serious
and the old man will soon be around
again attending to baslnesa.
