At tho above figures, the saving
to Graham county in two years
will amount to 10,200. "We have
included in the above saving
tho matter of Immigration
Commissioner, as tho general
opinion among lawyers, not
among newspaper men, is that
thero is nothing left to support the
Immigration Commissioner, that
it "died a bornin'." This view
will not meet tho approval of tho
"Immigration Commission press"
of Arizona, but tho courts and not
tho press interpret tho law.
Omitting tho matter of Immigration
Commissioner, tho saving to
Graham county will bo 6,730 per
year, or 13,460 in two years Had
tho decision of tho Supremo Court
been adverse to this law, it would
have been a much moro difficult
matter to enact a similar law two
years hence. As it is, tho matter
has been effectually settled, and
tho pooplo can truly say that the
Eighteenth Legislature was not
wholly a failure, as some papers
would have us believe.

Lingering Illness of Thirty
GENERAL PERIT0NETIS THE

Friends "Watch the I)"th Strngglo
Until tho i:nd, "Which Came
at 11.30 p. m.,Aiisiist
As tho hands of tho clock indicated
twenty minutes after cloven
o'clock on Thursday night, Aug.
1st, tho soul of G. B. Fox passed"
to that unknown realm to swell tho
countless numbers that havo gone
before. From six o'clock in the
ovening'it was seon that tho end
was approaching, that it was
and tho strolco of death
Evciy possiblo human effort was
exerted to caso the closing hours
of tho sufferer. At eight o'clock
tho indications of tho dying struggle
becamo moro pronounced, and
for over threo hours tho fever
stricken body tossed about tho bed
in excessivo nervousness, exhausting
what vital force yet remained
to continue life.
Tho necessities of tho caso called
for tho liberal administering of
morphine from tho effects of which
ho never fully .rallied. Shortly
tho end, tho struggles became
moro and moro violent, and tho
weary body of tho sufferer, in tho
convulsions of approaching death
was like tho unceasing rising and
falling ol a frail craft amid tho lashing
waves of tho mighty ocean.
Ono convulsive shudder succeeded
another during these intervals, ending
in ono feeble, spasmodic gasp
and all was over.
Tho "willing hands of tender,
sympathizing friends prepared tho
body for burial and on tho following
Friday evening as the sun was
hidden behind tho western mountains
tho casket with its remains
wero borne to tho military cemetery
at Fort Thomas and given a
place of rest. Tho pall bearers
wero II. F. "Williams, Harry Peehan
John Hondrickson, J. E. Yeager,
Andrew Alexander, C. B. Young,
C. E. Elder and James Gibson.
Eev. D. Eoberts, of this place,
at six o'clock, conducted tho funeral
ceremonies in tho Collins
building, which wero brief and impressive,
and amid tho deepening
shadows of evening tho clods
solemnly fell upon tho pulseless remains
of tho departed.
Tho deceased, usually called
Georgo Fox, was one of tho most
upright and agreeable gentlemen
that over claimed a home in any
community. Ho had resided in
Graham county as Chief Engineer
of the G. Y. G. & N. Ey., for about
fourteen months. Ho was born in
Lebanon county, Pa., twenty-eight
years ago. He leaves as sorrowing
relatives, a widowed mother,
about 55 years of ago and a mar
ried sister in Philadelphia, a broth
er Harvoy, in ' Illinois, and his
brother Harry, of tho Guardian,
who was constantly at his bedside
during tho last ten days of his ill
A. C. Laird, of tho Gila Valley
railroad, did not reach the bedside
of tho deceased until life had fled,
but with affeclionato sympathetic
tenderness did much toward con
soling the brother, Harry, in his
Harry Peehan and H. F. "Williams
gavo many watchful, sleepless
hours at tho bedsido of tho deceas
ed during his hours of suffering.
Dr. J. H. Lacoy, of Solomonville,
was tho attending physician, and
with anxious soncituuo, was constantly
with tho patient during tho
last forty-eight hours of his life,
doing everything possiblo to afford
relief and arrest tho ravages
of tho malady which was typhoid
fever, superinduced by general
pcritonotis .several hours before
death. The deceased had every
care of sympathetic hands, every
attention of medical skill and
everything to aid recovery, but the
ailment had become so deep seated
that human efforts were of but little
Hohad' resided in thereat about
twelve years, and had that happy
disposition to mako friends
wherever known. Although not
long a resident of Graham county,
ho leaves a host of friends in our
midst. Among all ofhisnumerous
acquaintances there was never an
unkind word for Georgo B. Fox.
"Wherever a word was uttered
touching his disposition, his traits
of character, his daily lifo and associations,
it was a "word of most
favorablo comment, complimentary
in its import, and bestowed upon
ono who was universally recognized
as possessing worth and merit.
At somo future time Avhcn deemed
advisable tho remains will bo
taken to tho old homo in Pennsylvania
and given a final resting
place amid tho 'hills and changing
scones of his earliest years.

The death of Mrs. Thompson, at
this place last Tuesday morning of
tuberculous enteritis aroused the
sympathy of tho whole community
for tho five orphans which sho
leaves, and also brought forth un
ivorsal condemnation of tho brute
of a husband who had deserted her
a couple of months ago, leaving
her in a delicate condition. Wo
are informed that this inhuman
monster left her in a hut near tho
foot of Mt. Graham, from which the
nearest water "was half a mile distance
and just ono dollar and a
couplo of goats for herself and
children to subsist upon, and ho
has never been heard of since. Sho
remained at this place for several
weeks until sho was nearly starved
when J. D. Hartzlor and Chas.
Francis learned of hor condition
and brought her to Safford, whero
sho could receive medical treatment.
Sho has been in a precarious
condition ever since she "was
brought hero, and on the 25th of
last month her baby was born, and
last Tuesday sho passed away.
During her illness she was in constant
fear that Thompson would return
and do her bodily harm for
allowing tho condition ho left her
in to bo known, and on her death
bed requested that, should he return,
none of her children be given
to him. Wo think, however, that
ho will not return to claim them,
for if ho should the treatment ho
deserves will no doubt be meted
out to him.
Mrs. Thompson was 24 years of
age; she did not know whoro any
of her relatives wero except ono
, from whom sho received
a letter a fow days before
her death stating that Thompson
was in Doming.
The funeial was hold tho samo
day she died, which was largely
attended. The funei al serveces were
read by Wm. Place, and her remains
wero interred in the Safford
burial ground. Dr. Eeed who had
been attending her, and Mr. and
Mrs. Glass, as soon as Mrs. Thompson
died took charge of the children.
Numerous families asked tho
privilege of taking chargo of the
children and tho following ladies
each took ono to her home: Mrs.
Peter Anderson, Mrs Eollins, Mrs.
Wm. Packer, Mrs. Hans Jorgenson,
and Mrs. Stukey.
Men like tho fellow Thompson
should bojshuned as a leper would
bo. Thero is no reason assigned
for his treatment of his wife; he
was making a fairly good living
peddling meat in this and adjoining
towns when ho deserted her,
and her death Avas caused from his

Jose Maria Sortition AV111 Not Hang.
Judge J. II. Kibbey a fow days
ago received a telegram from his
partner attorney M. H. Williams,
at Prescott, stating that the
Court had reversed tho de
cision in tho Sortillon caso and had
sustained tho decision in the Juana
In tho first named caso the decision
of the Supremo Court meant
lifo or death to a man Avho for
threo has been an inmate of
tho county jail. Tho United States
grand jury sotting in Phenix, returned
a true bill charging Joso
Maria Sortillon with burying alive
on November 12, 1892, on tho
reservation near tYuma,, the
one-day-old male child of Gncrre,
an Indian Avoman. Tim same
month the indictment Avas found ho
Avas tried for tho murder bf tho
babe, tho jury failing to agree. The
prisoner was returned to jailAA'herc
he remained until tho May term of
court of the next year when he Avas
again tried and on tho 25th of that
month tho jury brought in a verdict
of guilty as charged and on June
5th Judge Baker sentenced him to
be hung in the court house yard a
Phenix on July 27th.
Attorney Kibbey took ah appeal
to the Supreme Court, Avhero tho
caso has rested until this morning,
Avhen a decision Avas handed doAvn
granting the prisoner a now trial
and saving his neck from tho halter
for the present at least.
When Judge Kibby informed his
client of the decision this morning
a look of great happiness over;
spread his face and ho remarked, "I
am glad." It Avas certainly cheering
news to a man Avho for tho past
threo years has been deprived of
his liberty behind iron bars and
who for over a year has stood 5n

The decision on tho Juana Walker
caso Avas another triumph for
Judge Kibboy and tho decision of

Killed by Lightning.
Last Tuesday evening at about
4 o'clock in Solomonville, a few
