A complaint was issued by District

one O'Toolo, charged with vandalism.
O'Toole has been camping out at Wal
nut Canyon for the past week or two
and last Sunday was caught in the act
of demolishing some of the ancient
cave dwellings there. From general
appearances this kiud of work bad
been carried on ou an extensive scale,
and It was deemed advisable te put a
stop to it If possible. Under Sheriff
Falrchlld served tbe warrant of arrest
and O'Toole had bia examination be
foie Justice Wilcox Tuesday. The''
prisoner bad In bis posession a big and
valuable collection of Indian relics
found in the caves. This collection
was confiscated by the court and will
be turned over to the government. Af
ter a severe reprimand and a prospect
of dite punishment if caught in the act
again, O'Toole was discharged from
A good story ou Captain John Hance
Is told by a recent arrival from tbe
Grand Canyon. The captain bad
been tasking a practice of telling tbe
"tenderfoot" Who have been flocking
there of tbe wonderful salmon that
were to be caught in the Colorado
river. To show a sample of tbe flsb
was tbe next on tbeVprogram and
many a tenderfoot had tbe captain Ted
down th'e trail to his fish lines, which
were strung out into tbortvor. And
he would haul a salmon in, too, from
one of tha lines, much to the astonish
ment of the easterners. Last Sunday
he took a party down to his fish lines
and proposed to show the wonders of
tbe Colorado as a salmon fishing
stream. Ho picked up one of the
lines and gently pulled it toward him.
Tbe line was slack and the supposed
tenderfoot of the party, who bad done
quite a little salmon fishing himself on
the Columbia river, informed John
that unless he kept tbe Use taut the
fish would let loose. The line'camo lu

all the faster then and soon a big
three-foot salmon was thrown upon
ihe bank. But the steuch that arose
from that llsh was too great, and the
party broke and ran, leering Captain
Hance to bury it as best be could. By
a miscalculation of the enduring qual
ities of tbe dead salmon, tbe astute
ciptaln had yanked it out once lo

At a danco hall in Mexican town
on the night of July 3, J. A. Prada
s'lot Inez Muntoja in the head, the
bullet entering at tho light ear and

Dr. H. A. Hughes, governor of the
insane asylum at Phoenix, and W. A.
McGInnis, tbe architect appointed by
tbe Board of Control to draw up the
plans, etc.. for tbe remodeling of tbe
Reform school building here into a
branch insane asylum,' came in Mon
day to look over the work to be done.
There is some little friction in the
Board of Control over tbe appointment
of Mr. McGinnis, Governor Franklin
aud Mr. Wolfley. the citizen member,
favoring it, while 0. P. Leitch is op
posed to the appointment. Mr. Leitch
say that a new Gorernor will be ap
pointed within tbe next ten days, wno
will Immediately appoint a new set of
Territorial officials, including the other
Lwd members of the Board the citi
zen member and tbe Territorial Aud
itorj This new board, as a matter of
course, will discharge Mr. McGinnis,
who by that time will have run up a
considerable bill agaiust the Territory,
and appoint another man to take bis
place, who will, as experience has
shown, make as many alterations from
Architect McGinnis' plans as possible
and in fact do the work all over agalu
in accordance with bis idea. Thus
tbe expenses for tbe architect's plans
and specifications will cost about twice
as much as they Would should tbe
Board leave this matter to the incom
ing administration.' On the J other
hand, Messrs. Franklin and Wolfley
state the work should be started at
once, even though it be the last day
of their official existence. However,
we are all anxious to have tho Reform
school finished and turned over to the
uses for which the Nineteenth Assem
bly designated It.
