one of tho treats in storo in the near

ted Andrews Opera company, tho only
company on tho road presenting stand
ard opera in English. They come with
a record of 15 consecutive successful
seasons and the endorsement of press

handsome costumes, special scenery

Wedding 'of W. C. Greene and Miss
Mary A. Proctor.
Mr. W. c. Greene and Miss Mary A.
Proctor were married Saturday even
ing at 9:30 o'clock at the rooms of Mr.
and Mrs. A. C. Bernard in the Occi
Tho hasty wedding was somewhat of
a bui prise to the iriends of tho con
tracting parties, though it indicates
nothing of a specially romantic nature.
It had been agreed upon for some time
by tho parties interested, though dates
and final plans had not been made.
Miss Proctor has been in Phoenix for
some days the guest of Mr. and Mrs.
Bernard. Mr. Greene was called here
Saturday by court business and alfeo
received telegrams which necessitated
an early visit to New York. There be
ing no . ood reason to tho contrary they
decided on Saturday to tie the knot and
make the trip to Now York a bridal
tour as well as a business visit. Pro
bate Judge Langston was therefore
summoned, and after a short ceremony
and tho congratulations of tho few
friends present they took the 11 o'clock
S. P. & P. train for the north.
Tho groom is well known all over
Arizona us a umiiug uiuu, u.uu ins cuu
nection with tho Cobro Grande litiga
tion has made his name prominent in
the territorial press.
Iho b.-ide is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Fiank L. Proctor of Naco, Ari
zona, and is a most estimable young
lady, particularly well known in Pima
county. Phoenix Republican.
The news of the wedding was re
ceived in Bisbee on Monday aud came
as a big surprise to tho friends of the
newly married couple. The Review
takes special delight in extending con
gratulations. "Lucky Bill" Greene is
indeed a fortunate man, not only in his
mining deals, but in choosing a life
partner to share in his bright prospects
for tho future. Miss Maria Proctor is
a native of Tucson, where she is well
known and one of Tucson's most popu
lar joung ladies.
Gus Hoyman has been in Bisbee this
week taking orders for his house. The
last time Gk was here he was doing
"stunts" for Governor Murphy. He is
out of politics now and is devoting his
energy to selling goods for his house.
A correspondent writing from Phoe
nix to the Review says: "Speaking of
cheapness, it has been noted by persons
staying in Phoenix during the session
of the legislature that the merchants,
and those having anything for sale or
rent, show their marked appreciation
of the distinguished honor thus con
ferred upon the city by the presence of
the lawmakers by adding an apprecia
ble per cent to their prices of all com
modities when offered for sale or rent
to the visitors This distinguishing
mark is not always appreciated in that
light. I have heard one lady say that
instdad of buying her spring finery in
Phoenix she would make her purchases
in Bisbee, and not only get better
prices but leave her money nearer
