THE SILVER KNIGHTS
Moro About That Secret Older AVlilch
Senator Stownrt Hcnils.
A special from Washington says
that another secret organization
has been formed in this country
for political purposes. It is called
tho Order of the Sapromo Temple,
Silver Knights of America, and its
headquarters are No. 142 New
York avcnue,in Chicago. Tho indicated
purposo of tho society is to
advanco tlio cause of free coinage
of silver. Tho knighfs arc chartered
in Virginia as a corpoiation.
Tho charter namos William M.
Stowart of Carson City, Nov., as
president of tho corporation, and
among the other officers and directors
aio tho names of two
of Congress. It is claimed
that tho loadors of tho movement
aro prominent in all parts of tho
country and that a great number
of Representatives and Senators aro
included among them.
At tho genoral ofllco in Chicago
a number of clerks arc engaged in
sending out free-silver literature.
It is claimed that temples aro now
boing foimed throughout tho
country and that th'o Silver Knights
of America already show a very
considerable organization. It is
expected by tho promoters that by
tho timo tho noxt campaign is
actively cntorcu upon mere win no
lodges of Silvor Knights in every
town and hamlot of "United
States. Access to tho lodger ooms
can only bo obtained by means of
pass-words and signs, and discussions
that occur thero will bo guarded
with tho utmost secrecy.
Ton lllo Storms.
Dispatches state that the cntiro
eastern water shed to tho Nobraska

was swopt last Sunday night by
terriblo storms. Fields of grain
that promised tho most bountiful

to sum up tho loss but tho total is
appalling.and thoso to whom tho
angry elements 3pared life havo
littlo lett to sustain them. The
storm ombraccd an area of two
hundred squaro miles.
Tho groatcst loss of life is reported
from Winona, Minnesota, whoro

as many moro missing. Tho known
and probable- loss will reach
lives which will bo increased
when tho recoding water permits
a thorough soarch. Tho loss

Sco the M Is koaiade In the Ohio Convention

A special to tho Daily JSTcws from
Washington says: Westorn silver
Eucpbhcans havo outlined uninteresting

tho noxt National Republican convention.
Today a western Republican
of National prominence disclosed
tho progiam of silver
men in all its details and it is so
audacious as to startle political
"Tho plan," he says, "was agreed
upon at acoufeienec o? senators

"If Cameron is not acceptable
tho convention will bo asked to-agree
upon some other frco silver
Republican. If it refuses to act
upon tho suggestion, tho delegates
from these western states say they
will inarch out of tho convention
in a body carrying with thorn as
many free silver dclogatcs from
other states as they can command.
'They will wait upon tho Democratic
convention, not as dologates,
because thoy cannot bo admitted
as such, but as a commission knocking
at tho doors and asking for
tho nomination of a free silver
Democrat, Sonator Morgan of Alabama,

convention fails to act upon the
demand, tho silver men will abandon
both old parties.
V Ileal d of Supei ilsors.
The meeting of tho Board of Supervisors
at Solomonville on the
1st instant was watched with dcop
attention by every ono who felt
great intorost in tho notv Classification
Law, Tlio District Attor
ney had prepaicd full papers for
injunction against tho Board, to
provont the payment of county
under tho old law, and to
compel the observance of the now
law. Judge Hyatt tho Court Commissioner
was on hand so that tho
papers could bo signed, sworn to,
filed, and an injunction issued at a
moments notice, if it became necessary
when tho Board mot.
Tho District Attorney had fust observed
tho now law by
tho County Recorder as Clerk
of the Board, and filing with that
officer tho claim for compensation
undor tho now law, and ontircly
ignoring tho old law from and after
tho 22d of April last.
After a short conference outside,
tho Boai'd mot with quito a number
of spectators present, and after
being called to order recognized
Recorder Leon as Clerk of tho
Board, requesting that ho appoint
Mr. Harry Smith as Deputy Clerk,
which was done. This recognition
of tho now law was satisfactory to
tho District Attorney and tho in
junction papers woro withhold.
This was tho second meeting ot tlio
Board since tho now law went into
effect, and tho failuro or neglect
of tho Board at its last special
meeting to observe tho now law,
and recognize Recorder Leon as
Clerk, caused the steps to be taken
for injunction proceedings, but
now harmony apparently prevails
again botween the Board and tho
Tho Board shortly after its meeting
sottled down to business auditing
demands 'and attending to
routine matters. On Tuesday
Dr. J. A. Lacoy was permitted to
tako tho hospital contract at tho
same figures under which it was accepted
by tho lato Dr. Coffman.
Most of tho week was spent as a
Board of Equalization, working
The New County Fhyslclau.
Dr. J. II. Lacy, of Solomonvillo,
and who has been appointed to the
position of County physician was
in town last Saturday.
Dr. Lacy is an old resident of
Graham county, having located at
Clifton about cloven years ago
where ho practiced his profession
for several years. After leaving
tho Copper Company ho traveled
and practiced in different states,
and at ono timo had ohargo of ono
of tho largest hospitals in Old

that position on account of poor
health, and scok a moro healthy
climate. Dr. Lacyjis a first-class

ELLA ADELIA MOODY.
SHE DIED AT FAGALII, S0M0A,
ON MAY 24TH, 1895.
After an Illness of Twenty-One Dajs In a
One of tho most melancholy
events that wo havo yot been called
upon to chronicle is tho death
of Ella Adclia Williams Moody,
wifo of Wm. A. Moody, at Fagali ,
About tho 20th of last October
Wm. A. Moody, of Thatcher, left
for Samoa to perform a mission
thero, accompanied by his wifo.
Mrs. Moody was well and stiong
when she left home, but the sea
voyage did not agree with her, and
sinco her arrival at tho Islands has
not been in robust health, and on
tho 3d of May gave birth to a
daughter. After she had been confined
her friends and tho attonding
physician wcro greatly encouraged
ana nad no tears for hor ultimate
recovery. But she remained some
what foverish and about May 8th
commencsd to get worse until about
tho middle of tho month sho rallied
and it was thought tho danger
point had been passed. She improved
steadily until tho 21st when
she was well enough to sit up and
talk to hor husband and friends
who were constant watchers at her
bedside, and asked to have hor
mail read. Tho doctor was in
daily attendance, and did everything
in his power to break tho fever
which ho accomplished by the
morning of tho 24th, and said if it
did not return sho would recover.
Aftor the fever had beon subdued
tho doctor gave medicine to
strengthen hor heart, after which
ho was accompanied to his ofllco
by Mr. Moody, about two miles
distant. Will was greatly encouraged
by tho doctor's reassuring
words, but when ho returned homo
he saw his wifo was dying.
A few hours before her death her
mind seomed to wander, as sho
asked several times if her parents
had como yet, stating that thoy
wero very slow in coming. Everything
was dono that a loving
Dana and laithful friends could do
to save her, but to no purpose, and
to tho hour of 7 o'clock p. m. May
21th, 1895, God called her spirit
homo, and sho died in the arms of
Mrs. May Bell, a white lady, who
is a teacher among the natives, was
untiring in her efforts at tho bedside
of Mrs. Moody until with constant
watching at night and teaching
in the day sho was completely
worn out, but her warm heart told
her that tho baby must bo cared
for, and'on tho 19th of May, by tho
consent of Mr. and Mrs. Moody
took tho littlo ono homo and eared
for it thero. Sinco tho death of its
mother tho littlo orphan has been
placed in the permanent caro of
Mkj. Bell until Mr. Moody returns
home. Tho U. S. Consul to Samoa
who is a friend of tho Bell family
has interested himself in tho littlo
one's welfare and has expressed
great sympathy for Mr. Moody in
his torriblo loss.
Tho natives did all they could
in thoir simple way to render assistance
during Mrs. Moody's sickness,
and when sho was buried,
completely covered tho caskot and
gravo with wreaths of flowers.
Mrs. Moody had been married a
little less than a year at tho timo
of her demise, and was well known
as a bright intelligent girl, with a
loving and sympathetic disposition
throughout tho entire community.
When the news of her death arrived
hero, it was a terrible blow-to

Criminals from a distanco think
that if they get into Arizona ' thoy
will be coraparitvoly safe. Never
was a greater error of judgmcnU
committed. In probably no other;
region of tho Union aro people so
well acquainted personally with
ono another over so largo, an area1
of country as in Arizona. The
reason is that thero arc
tively few centers of population,
our people aro largely made up of
bright, intelligent stockmen, mining
men and business men who aro
continually moving from ono point,
to another about tho Territory; and
then again there is little chanco to
go anywhere or get into or out of
tho Territory Except over established
routes. It is rare that a
criminal escapes for any length of?

boys played rather a mean
trick on Editor Wolfloy this afternoon
for which they should be
ashamdd. Thoy saw him coming
down tho street and taking a great
big silver dollar fastened a string
to it and threw it down on tho
walk. As Mr. Wolfloy came along
ho saw tho money and made a quick
dive for it but not quick enough to-catch
it, as tho boys had pulled the
string and whoro the dollar had reposed
so innocently there 'was
nothing but bare sidewalk. Tho
boys will never forget the look of ;
withering scorn which tho editor
turned upon them when their jeering
laugh reached " his ears. Her-
E. F. Kcllnev arrived hero on
Thursday from Washington whoro,
ho had been for several weeks urging
his claims as a gubernatorial
candidate, Mr. Kellner states that
while no decided action has yot
been taken in tho matter, and probably
will not bo for a month, ho
had assurances before leaving Washington
that tho President was
favorably disposed towards him,
and ho is confident that if a resident
of the Territory is appointed
it will bo ho. Theie is a possibility,
however, that owing to tho
very bit' or fractional fight in tho
Arizona Democracy, that an outsider
may bo appointed. Belt.
Washington, D. C, hotel keepers
are said to bo very much interested
in tho removal of Gov. Hughes as
on tho consummation of that event
rests the settlement of numerous
board bills contracted by applicants
for his place and their possidle ap
pointees. When the report got
out that a man down in Georgia
was to bo appointed, tho hotel
keepers aro said to havo been much
alarmed. Of course, as long as tho
governor stays in thero is hope
for each one of theso applicants
and there may bo hotel credit for
thein to tho end of his term Courier.
