Paul Becker, was robbed by two
About twelvo o'clook Mr. Becker
locked tho store and went out for
a lunch, ho ictuined about half
past twelvo and as ho cntored tho
liquor room, was seized by two
masked men who had gained access
by a window in the icar of tho
store. One held a to
his head and tho other threatened
him with a knifo. They took from
his pockets about fifty dollars and
thon led him into tho other room
and commanded him to open tho
safe, ho responded by giabbing the
six-shooter, held by one, then a
desperate struggle ensued; tho
man with tho knifo stabbed him in
tho neck and arms fivo or six times
and finally drovo tho knifo into his
body tho entiro length of tho blade,
when Paul broko from thorn, jumping
over tho countor aud made his
escape into a neighboring saloon
with tho knifo still in his back,
whoro it was extracted. Tho robbers
in tho mcantimo made their

thoy had entered, leaving a trail of
blood behind, showmi; (hat ono of

Dr. Davis was summoned and
found that Mr. Becker had received
seven knifo wounds, two of which
woro serious. Tho noxt morning
about nino o'clock, Deputy Sheriff
Davis trailed tho would bo murderers
to a tent within ono hundred
yards of whoro tho deed had been
committed. When ho was within
twenty feet of tho house, three
men stepped out armed with lilies
and six-shooters and btarted up
thosidooftho mountain. As the

view of them, thoy were about ono
hundicd feet away from him, he
turning tho file with their rifles
but missing their mark, ho continued
shooting while the men
wore trying to mako their escape
and succeeded in bringing one
down. The Sheriff then called for
"help" and several responded.
Pablo Salcido, who was ono of tho
Sheriff's posse, was pursuing the
robbers up tho side of tho mountain
with a six-shooter in his hand,
when ono of the robbers rested his
gun over a rock, took deliberate
aim and fired, tho bullet taking
effect in Salcido's head causing
instant death. During this timo a
part of the Sheriff's posse mado a
detour around tho mountain to cut
off tho lotreat of tho other two
robbers, fortunately they arrived
at tho brow of the mountain in due
timo, leaving the other two robbers

Tho following story is told by
an old timer: "I heard a story
onco about a young man, a tenderfoot,
who after long wondering
what mado the beof in Arizona so

at tho solution, as ho thought, and
that quite by accident. He was
riding out with a friend, an old
resident, when they chanced to
como upon a bunch of cattle. Tho
young man seemed to bo studying
over something, and finally ho
pointed to an animal which bore
the brand 'B C 45.' 'Look at
that,' ho exclaimed. 'How can
you expect those antediluvians to

don't you kill your cattle boforo

Washington Correspondence of
tho Ijos Angeles Times: Dclcgato
Murphy in speaking to mo of the
Indian question, said. "I havo
seen tho war department and interior
department officials concerning
tho recent murders by Apaches
in Arizona. I told them that this
was to havo been expected when
tho troops were removed from San
Carlos. Thorc are peacablo tribes
in Arizona, but tho Apaches aro
nover safe, no matter how quiet
thoy may scorn to bo. Tho authorities
assuro me that thero will bo
better protection at San Carlos
and that the mineral lands will be
segregated. If they do as
no legislation will be necessary
but if not, I will introduce a resolution
that will bring about an
investigation." Continuing upon
tho Indian question in general, he
said: "Millions of dollars arc expended
upon tho Indians and tho
machinery necessary to maintain
tho very peculiar relation in which
they stand toward the United
States. This must end sometime,
and as tho territories all become
states, thero seems to bo but one
practical solution, allot all of the
Indian lands and then lot tho Indians
occupy tho samo position as
any other citizens. Thoso who
aro capable of being civilized will
bo protected and thoso who aro
not will bo punished by tho laws
of the seveial states, and if left in
that way to tho wisdom of tho
will be solved satisfactorily and
without tho expenso attendant
upon tho present system."
Tho Texas Idea.
When you ask a man to subscribe
for your paper and ho says:
"Oh, I never read much, aud
times are to plagued tight;"
for God's sake apologize to him for
tho mistake and leave him. Life
is too short to wasto time trying to
teach a jackass how to sing soprano.
All gentlemen nowadays
read newspapers and lots of them.
Show us a man who lives for years
in a town or country and never
.subscribes for the papers published
there, and wo will show you a man
whoso heail is shaped like a piece
of pie, with tho point up, and
whoso ignoiance is only exceeded
by his gigantic gall. A country
works day and night for ovor
decent man in tho community;
therefore every decent man in tho
community is in honor bound to
assist in its support. The great
tDublo is that some swollhead
galoots fancy thoy aro making the
editor a presont when they tako
his paper. Wo have tho profound-est
sympathy for tho man who
lives in a country for years and
never subscribes and pays for his
country paper. If that poor follow
was to encounter an idea in a
lano, ho would turn and fly the
other way with tho tail of his garment
beating tho atmosphere.

A WILY. OLD APACHE.
How Esklmlnzln Expressed His Opinion
or tho Military.
Old Eskiminzin, who died ai
San Carlos lately, was ono of tbji
first of tho Apaches to claim for
himself the titlo of civilized. BuJ
he was a precious old rascal for all
that, no had a farm down on tK
San Pedro and cultivated something
of an expense of farming
land oarly in tho 'SO's, as well an
having a good sized band of cattri
and of horses. But it was a peculiar
fact that at his ranch centered
many of tho trails of hostiles aftojr
they had committed devoltry and
so the old follow was finally
onto tho reservation and watched.
It is of Eskiminzin that the following
ancient tale is told: Hfi
was in Tucson ono day buyinr
several rifles and a largo amounjl
of ammunition which was sold
tho strength of his peacofiil
proclivities. A bystander, however,
sauntered up and remarked:
"Say, Skim, what do you warji
with all that ammunition. Goirar
to kill soldiers with it?"
Just about that time tho troojiiL
under General O. B. Willcox lidP
been catching merry shcol froflt
the Apaches and Skim's reply was
