THE TROUBLE SETTLED "UU1 riiJ MM
AWfUl PlUMeJ (j HEC QMTH
The Mathewt School Will Open Noxt Monday
Without n Lawsuit.
School district No. 15,
has for tho past three months
been in hot wator over tho location
of their school houso. It seems
that in last August tho people in
this end of Matthowsvillo commenced
erecting a now school
house. Ever sinco tho organization
of tho district was hold in tho
old houso about a milo bolow tho
present ono. When tho moveraont
was inaguarated to build tho now
houso, tho people of tho lower part
of tho district objected to its location,
but tho people in this end
wont ahead and built tho house on
donation, thinking thoy could deed
it to tho district and it would
school property. After tho
houso was completed two of tho
trustees A. O. Lamorcaux and
Lohi Larson had tho furniture removed
from tho old to tho now
building S. F. Matthews boing
the third momber of tho board, and
living in tho lower part of tho district
objected to tho location, and
when ho found tho furniture had
been moved and that school was to
bo opened on tho 4th of November,
ho went to Solomonvillo to ascertain
what stops to pursue to pro-vent
tho opening of school in tho
now building. Ho discovered that
tho law for locating school buildings
had not been followed and he
obtained an injunction restraining
tho other members of tho board
from opening school, and tho case
sot for last Saturday.
Accordingly all parties concerned
woro on hand last Saturday at
Solomonvillo and wo aro informed
by A. O. Lamoraux, that by tho
assistance of District Attorney
Jones tho thing was fixed up satisfactory,
tho injunction dismissed
by Lamoreaux and Larson paying
tho costs and tho following compromise
effected: School is to bo
held in the now houso for tho first
three months of tho present year
and in tho old houso tho other
three months, and noxt year tho
people will work in harmony for
a division of tho district as it is
now several miles squaro. School
will open in tho new building next
Monday morning, and it is to bo
hoped that another such a squabble
will be avoided as it is a drawback
to tho district and to tho people
in general.

Elcetrie Car Drops a Hundred
Feet to Murky Waters That
Lay Below.
THE PASSENGERS DROWNED.
The Night Was Dark and the Draw llrldge
Open When the; Terriblo DIstaster
Came.
At Cleveland, Ohio, a heavy
electric motor car, containing between
twonty and thirty passengers
went through tho draw of the
Central viaduct last Saturday
evening and dropped 100 feet into
tho river below.
It was a horror, tho liko of
which never was seen before.
Tho Central viaduct is a hugh
stilt bridge, 3,000 feet long, mado
of iron. It connects tho Heights
and prosperous rcsidenco sections
on both sides with the business
center of tho city.
Directly over tho river is a draw
bridgo of the pivot, swinging pat-torn,
and this 100 feet above tho
surface of tho water. Tho ill-fated
motor can, with its twenty or
thirty peoplo, approached tho
bridgo just as a vessel was nearing
it.
Tho bridgo attendants had closed
tho big iron gates and were
to swing tho draw.
As is tho rulo, tho car stopped
and tho conductor wont forward to
release a switch in caso tho way
was clear. Ho must havo been
blinded by tho electric lights, for,
although tho gates were closed and
tho draw in motion, tho conductor
raised tho switch handle.
Tho motorman applied the current
and tho car shot forward and
struck the gates with a crash.
Thero was only a moment's
pauso and thon tho heavy car
ground its way through the wreck-ago
and plunged into tho black
abyss amid tho screams and frantic
struggles of the passengers, who at
tho first intimation of danger, rushed
for tho rear door.
Tho car struck tho wator with a
great splash and thcro was silence.
In an mcrediblo short space of
time tho work of rescue begun.
All tho occupants of tho car,
with tho exception of ono, who
managed to jump to tho ground as
it toppled over, went down to certain
death.
Tho car disappeared from sight
as soon as it struck tho water and
overy ono of tho passengers was
drowned. Within fivo minutes after
the accident tho rivor flowed
peacefully on, its surfaco
nothing of tho terriblo
tragedy that lay boneath.
THE INSTITUTE.
y
An Enthusiastic Meeting of tho Teachers
of Graham County.
According to program tho
met in tho Academy at Thatcher
at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning,
and was opened by tho
Thatcher choir and prayer by
Bishop Samuel Claridgo. All the
teachers woro not present at the
opening, but asido from tho teach-ors
thcro was a largo number of
peoplo in tho houso anxious to ascertain
tho progress being made in
our public schools.
After tho organization and election
of Hifs Harriet Gillispia as
secretary, Governor Hughes, Mrs.
Hughes, and Supt. Netherton made
brief addresses. Before the noon
adjournment committees on school
laws and resolutions wero appointed,
tho report of which will appear
in our noxt issue.
In tho afternoon tho teachers got
down to work and tho pre-arranged
program was carried out from then
until tho timo of our going to
pross. Besides tho regular school
work literary oxcrcises wero indulged
in, so that altogether tho
instituto is not only very instructive
but also entertaining. Gra
ham county can woll bo proud of
corps of teachers, as they aro all
earnest workors and present an
appearance of intelligence that is
rarely met with.
Great praise is due Supt. Cluff
and his committeo for tho work
thoy havo dono in arranging and
decorating so tastily, and in making
tho instituto such a success.
So much iuthusiasm was displayed
that at tho ovening session tho
houso was not moro half largo
enough.
Tho singing furnished by tho
Thatcher choir was greatly appreciated
by tho teachers, and in fact
by all in attendance.

Governor and Mrs. Hughes and Superin
tendent Netherton Rreakfust at Safford.
Tuesday night's train brought to
our valloy Gov. and Mrs. Hughes
and Superintendent Netherton,
who will be present at the Instituto
at Thatcher. Quito an oxtonsivo
program was proparcd for their entertainment
which in substance is
as follows: On Tuesday night,
upon arriving at Thatcher, the
party was mot by a delegation and
escorted to Mrs. Moody's where
supper was had. Wednesday morning
tho party including tho Gov.
and Mrs. Hughes, Supt. Netherton,
Pres. C. Layton and wife, Supt.
Cluff, W. D. Johnson and Thomas
E. Williams drove to Safford. Tho
visitors wore met by a committeo
and escorted to tho rcsidenco of
Mrs. Sullivan whore after spending
about half an hour in tho parlor in
social conversation, breakfast was
announced. Tho Governor's party
and tho committeo from Safford,
amounting to 10 in all repaired to
tho dining room, Mrs. Sullivan
presiding. Those in attendanco
upon tho table wero Mrs. W. D.
French, Mrs. Potor Anderson, Mrs.
Dortha Rollins and Miss Lizzie
Perkins. After tho breakfast,
which lasted about an hour, tho
party visited the Guardian offico
and from thero was driven around
Safford. At 10:30 they returned to
Thatcher to attend tho days exercises
at tho instituto in tho Academy
building. In tho afternoon,
after adjournment, tho party was
taken to Pima. Here thoy
wero again met by a number of
representative citizons and escorted
to tho mooting house, where tho
Governor mado an interesting address
of about 30 minutes. From
the meeting house tho party proceeded
to tho residence of Mr.
Hyrum Wecch, where supper was
served, after which thoy returned
to Thatcher.
When the party entered tho
Academy thoy wero greeted by a
houso full of people eager to hear
tho visitors speak. After the opening
chorus and prayer Judge Cluff
introduced Supt. Netherton who
delivered a stirring and patriotic
address, containing numerous statistics
on school affairs. Ho demonstrated
the fact that the average
salary paid to teachers is very low.
Ho urged the segregation of School
Superintendent from that of
Judge, bringing forth facts to
sustain his position. In alluding
to tho now apportionment law ho
said ho was sure it was tho correct
system, and mado comparisons in
a clear logical way to carry out
his ideas. Before closing ho paid
a high tribute to tho integrity, intelligence
and faithfulness of our
teachois. His whole address was
a masterly effort in the causo of
education and was greatly appreciated
by his hearers.
Gov. Hughes was next introduced.
Ho alluded with much feeling, to
tho wounderful development of
Graham county, in every ono of
her industries, tho high moral
character and steadfastness of her
people and tho wonderful richness
of her mineral and agricultural
lands. He dwelt briefly on territorial
affairs in general, and
laws passed by tho last legislature
and to those which found their
birth in Graham county in particular.
His remarks from beginning
to end woro listened to with tho
utmost attention, and tho audience
showed cleary that they woro deeply
interested in his address, which
was highly instructive and beneficial.
Itlo Grande) Rio Grande!
Don't forget tho frontier drama
to be presented by tho Safford
Dramatic Co. in tho Academy hall
at Thatcher to night.
Tho grand jury of Gila county
has somo original ideas. Tho
grand jury of that county claim
that tho tax levy for tho Territorial
Normal school, tho Territorial University
and tho Territorial Reform
school is an illegal tax so far as
that county is concerned, for tho
reason that tho county is in debt
above 4 per cent of tho valuo of
tho taxable property. This will
probably crcato another muddlo in
territorial financial affairs.

A Thrilling Duel on the Boundary
Line.
Wealthy Cattlemen Fight With Spanish
Daggers.
FRED R0ME0 IS CUT DOWN BY
HIS OLD.TIME FRIEND JIM
MONTAGUE.
The Latter Then Stabbed In the Hack by
One of the 1'ormer's
Prompted the Meeting.
At a lonely spot on the lino between
Mexico and tho United
States, seven miles below Bisbee,
two cattlemen, who count their
money by tho hundreds of thousands,
and, until a recent dato old-
time friends, fought a duel. Ono
is dying, tho other seriously if not
fatally, wouhded.
Fred Romero, ono of the best-known
cattlemen in Sonora, and
who has immense hoards grazing
upon tho plains of Arizona, became
jealous of his old-time friend
and late partner in the cattle business,
Jim Montague, who, ho
though, had alicnted his wife's
and challenged him to a
duel, to be fought on the boundary
lino at an early hour, last week.
Montaguo is a nativo of California,
and is considered ono of tho bravest
men in these parts, consequently
ho immediately accepted Romero's
challenge. The seconds were
chosen, the toss mado for tho weapons,
and Romero won and chose
tho Spanish dagger.
When tho sun peeped over tho
mountains at 0 o'clock the two lato
partners, whose business in the
lino was at ono timo tho most
oxtonsivo in Arizona and Sonora,
faced each other and stood with
daggers uplifted, ready to begin
tho battlo for life or death. G.
Galmatti, foreman of Montague's
ranch, and a bosom friend of both
parties, fired tho gun, the signal
when tho fray should begin. Quick
as lightning, and true to his native
custom, Romero bounded in tho
air and mado a fearful thrust for
Montague, which was neatly parried.
Both sparred and fell back,
looking for an opening.
Finally Montague cut Romero
through tho groin, Romero staggered
and almost fell. Blood flow
ed freely from his wound and dyed
tho sou which marks tho boundary
lino a crimson hue. At this timo
tho second interferred, but while
Montague's back was turned and ho
was being rushed away to his horse
which was picketed in tho chaparral
close by, an employee of
Romeroo's rushed upon Montaguo
and stabbed him in tho back,
wounding him fatally.
Tho small colony of American
are at this timo scouring
the country for tho cowardly
scoundrel, ,and, if captured, tho
fato of tho rapist at Tylor, Tex.,
will not bo a marker to tho Indian
torture that they say tho will mote
out to him.
School Electors Meeting y
Last Saturday ovening a meeting
of tho electors of tho Safford and
Layton School Districts, Nos. 1
and 14, was held in the Layton
meotine houso for tho purpose of
hearing suggestions on tho movement
now being agitated as to the
advisability of consolidating tho
two districts, buying a plot of
ground and erecting thereon a two
story brick school houso and organizing
a thoroughly graded
school system. Quite a number of
representatives wero present from
each district and many able talks
on the question wero mado. Superintendent
Cluff mado un interesting
talk on the subject and
showed the advantages of graded
schools in our midst. Thero seems
to bo littlo opposition to tho movement,
and those who do not understand
the matter thoroughly
should attend tho next meeting,
which will bo held at the same
place, on Saturday ovening, Nov.
30th. John J. Birdno and Harry
B. Fox wero elected chairman and
secretary respectively. A. H. Bennett
and R. A. Smith, of Layton;
T. T. Hunter and E. D. Tuttlo, of
Safford and Superintendent Cluff
wero appointed to find a snitablo
tract of land, tho cost of same and
roport at tho noxt meeting. After
a littlo moro preliminary work the
mooting adjourned.

Some Unknown Persons Attempt to Enter
the Post Office at this Place Last
Wednesday Ight.
Thcro was an attempt mado to
rob the Safford post-office lasfc
Wednesday night by somo unknown
persons, who woro evidently
familiar with tho surroundings,
as the putty was cut from tho two-out
sido panes of the window in tho
rear of the offico and next to tho
iron safe so as to easily enable the
thieves to open tho clasps on
and raise tho window, thus
making the entranco easy. During
tho day, postmaster Hunter
had taken in an unusually largo
amount of cash, which, of course,
was put in the safe for tho night,
Tho amount being largo, and
being at hand for his quarterly
remittance to tho department at-Washington,
Mr. Hunter did not
sleep well and during the night-,
imagined ho heard a peculiar noiso
about tho houso. Thinking it was
only tho wind ho paid no attention
to it. About 2:30, feeling rather
uncomfortable from some cause or
other, he arose and built a a fire in
tho stovo, this act is supposed to
have frightened tho thieves away.
Mr. Iluntcr now has a
shot-gun loaded with bullets
and says that if the parties return
thoy vill receive a warm reception.

IMPORTANT DECISION.
The Montana Supreme Court Decides (
Caso InvoU lug the Apex of a Mine.
A special to tho Tribune from
Helena Mont., says: Tho
handed down a decision last
week in a mining case in which
Hon. W. A. Clark, chairman of tho
National Bimetallic committee, was
dofendant. The decision of tho
third judicial district couit in Butte
was affirmcd,which was against
Clark, compelling him to pay $40,-000.
