On my return from the capital city
last week I spent a day at Tempe, situ
ated on the south side of Salt river,
nine miles above Phecix and m the
centre cf a large district of excellent
land that is being rapidly brought into
cultivation. Here I had the pleasure
to meet an old friend, H. G. Lin-
ington, president of the bank
of Tempe, wnich has a cash capital of
$50,000, surplus of $6,000 and undivided
profits of 82,300. The stockholders and
directors are composed of some of the
most substantial Citizens of the valley.

cantile establishments are Armstrong &
Co., C. Hayden, Wood & Co., and B.
Goldman, all of whom report a good
and steadily increasing trade. The sign
board of L. W. Blinn & Co., lumber
dealers, which is to be seen in almost
every town in soutnern Arizota, is
conspicuous here also, and the company
is represented by C. N. Taylor, a most
competent and energetic business man.
x rom mm 1 learned that an encourag
ing increase of business is noted from
month to month. From his transactions
a fair idea of the progress of the coun
try may be had, showing that the farm
ers are doing more and better building
constantly. Especially noteworthy is
the large amount of lumber purchased
for barns and grain warehouses. The
company expect this year to construct
ice and water works for the town.
Tempe affords an excellent water
power, at present utilized by the flour
ing mill of Mr. Hayden, which, by the
way, is said to turn out a superior art
icle since the introduction of the new
roller process. A major portion of the
town site is owned by the Tempe Land
and Improvement Co., which it is under
stood contemplate the inauguration of
some desirable enterprises soon
The Tempe Evaporating and Canning
Co., organized this year, is a worthy en
terprise, that is doing much to promote
the progress of the neighborhood.
From E. G. Frankenberg, the president
and manager, 1 learned that tne com
pany handle 115,000 pounds of fruit on
n average weekly , and tnat the patent
dryer first introduced was discarded for
lhe equally successful and more econ
omicai process of sun dryiog. They
have one and a half car-loads of dried
peaencs in the Dins and expect to cure
as much more before cking the run
The business has proved so satisfactory
that it is probaole the capacity of dry
ing and canning will be doubled the
succeeding fruit season. Most of the
peaches handled are seedling, and,
though not 6o large ns tho gecerality of
budded fruit, makes a bne article in
fact better, in Mr. Fran ken berg's opin
ion, than any buudel fruit he has
handled, excepting the Muir.
Calling oa J. H. Root, the postmaster,
1 was informed that the mail business
to and from Tempe denotes a steady in
crease, which means increase of popula
tion. The present population of the
town is nearly 1,1)00. It . hRs become a
very important point for the shipment
of hay, grain and cattle. Five car loads
of grapes were shipped east this season
in wholesale lots, betides many boxes to
the retail trade near by. Also four car
loads of honey were transported, tatting
first rank in tue eastern markets.
The moral sentiment of Tempe
is high, the several religious
denominations represented having
large congregations of regular
attendacte. The late mcreaso of settlers
from the east, especially Kaunas, has
helped perceptibly in this direction.
The Congregation aliets are now planning
to erect a creditable church edifice. The
Farmer's Alliance, and Good Templars
have organizations and other societies
will 60on follow. A musical association
with an instructor from the Boston con
servatory has a strong organization.
The territorial normal school located
here has 00 students and the pupils in
the general public schools number SO,
The improvements being made in the
normal school buildings will cost about
$10.0X), and a new public school build

Samuel. Brown, blacksmith, and Geo.
Kenney were among the oldest residents

Mr. Miller, editor and proprietor of

but by his works, having acquired title

ing families from Kansas. Mr. Schultz
has visited that state several times f ifd
piloted the vanguard of what promises
to become a regular exodus from there.
A ride out with Mr. S. was to me proof,
positive, that the tales of wonderful
fertility and productiveness told me
were not overdrawn. On our way to the
government etperimental station in
charge of Professor Gulley, Tucson,
we passed the extensive alfalfa fields of
the Tempe Improvement Co., full of fat
cattle; next the 320 acres of alfalfa own
ed by M. Elling6on, and then the Her
mosa tract of ItiO acres, all planted to
fruit by Kansas people a beaitiful
place. At the government experiment
farm,' three miles eouth of To.npe, we
found fortv acres, all in fruit trees of
many varieties, highly cultivated. Mr.
S. informed me that the entire section
will be planted to fruit trees this year.
Turning south we passed J. Stinson's
320 acre alfulfa farm, stocked with
mares, raising mules; thence we crossed
the Tempe canal, and passed Tom
Brown's quarter section, 40 acres of
which will be planted t orchard next
winter, the remainder 12) seres, by the
Santa Fe ticket agents. Further on we
passed a section, bought by 22 Kansas
families, all to be planted to fruit. East
of here we passed another s ection also
owned by Kansans, and etui another
section to the north has been purchased
by these enterprising people, Eugene
Dai r securing half of it. Next we passed
Mr. Stesson's 40 cere fruit orchard late
ly planted. Iiecroesicg the Tempe
canal we viewed Messrs. Miller and
Wolf's fine places acd the Fairyiew
creamery, which has such a high reputa
tion for its manufacture, and are back
again at Tempe in time for supper.
The Tempe canal, being one of the
! oldest in the valley, is claimed to be al
j ways well supplied with water, which is
! an important consideration for intend-
ing settlers to take into account
Another large canal located above
Mesa City is under construction by D.
hi. Ferry, the celebrated Michigan seed
man. It will cover about 40,000 acres.
Tempe is evidently destined soon to be
come a very important commercial cen

A WET FALL.
Weather Observer Wetmore Tells
Why it is Very Probable.
Weather Observer Wetmore predicts
a wet fall and backs his statement by
observations taken of other years. His
theory is that wet winters, light sum
mer rains and heavy autumn rains are
the proper order of succession acd
shows that such has been the case in
other years and believes it should in
the year of our Lord, 1891.
The average of rainfall for the years
from 1870 to 1890 was:j
For 1891 the precipitation was:
Thus it will be seen that 1891 had a
dry summer, fulfilling one part of the
proper indications. In 1884 the summer
rams were 1.7 inches; in loao, z.00
inches; in 1886, 3.97 inches, and in 1833,
2 00 inches. In 1884 there was a very
wet fall and in January, February
and March 5 37 inches very heavy
fell. The same holds good with 1888,
when the fall wa9 very wet. Likewise

April, light summer and heavy fall
Now as to 1891: For'January, Feb

Leaving Tucson on the 17th inst at
6:30 a. m., a stage ride of about 90 miles j

o'clock in the evening. The road for

who are not prepared to furnish all tho
delicacies of the season, which the

but a few hundred feet higher than
Tucson. The vast flats .intervening

On my arrival I soon formed the ac
quaintance ef Wm. Pickett, superintend
ent of (the Bonanza mines, which in
cludes five corporations, all under one
general head, W. S. Lyle, of San Fran
cisco, 'president. The names of the
several companies are the Peer, Peer
less, Crocker, Combination and Wel
don. It being mail day, which is not every
day in this camp, all the boys had gath
ered around the postoffice window in
hopes of receiving some late message
from the outside world, so in due time
my acquaintanceship became general.
The population of the camp is about
CO, exclusive of Indians, while along
about 8o and '86, it will be remembered,
it contained fully 1,800 people. It is Mr.
Pickett's opinion that history will have
repeat itself sooner than many suppose,
and that a relapse is not likely to follow
as soon as before. During those excit
ing days there were 8 stores, 20 saloons,
and everyother accompainment in a
business line, which the jingle of coin is
sure to attract. Jwery evidence or a
deserted and dilapidated townsite is
here to testify to the truth of what the
town has been. Buildings that cost
thousands of dollars are in various stages
The discovery of the Emerald mice in
1873 by F. Adams, Alex. McKay, Dan
Crocker and Al. Weidon was the be
ginning of Quijotoa, which, in the Indian
tongue, is eaid to mean basket moun
tain. It was not until 1832, however,
that mineral of great account was taken
out. In 1884 the present owners got
possession of the mines and a shipment
of fifty or more tone of very rich ore
raised an excitement, which brought the
rush of people. Nearly half a million
dollars are known to have been extracted
from the Peerless and Crocker mines.
Mr. Pickett is now laying in the largest
amount of supplies ever provided since
the palmy days, and is preparing to make
another run on the Peerless, and also the
Peer, which he believes will prove the
baat mine in the group. He has assays
to justify this conclusion. He proposes
to let some large wood contracts soon.
Burley drills are being employed to
thoroughly prospect the property, and
at the same time a small force of men

be increased, where upon the mill, which
is a 20-s tamp, will be started up again.
About 20 men are employed here.
Through the courteay of Jas. Neil, the
ekilled machinist and engineer, I was
permitted to inspect the mill to my sat
isfaction. It was completed in 1S85, acd
his always done good work. The main
engine is a 175 horse power with 0
boilers, equal to 300-horse power. The
second engine, used for compressing ic
running drills, eta, is 125-horse power.
To operate both ic requires 8 cords of
wood at a cost of per cord.

the same time the loaded car descends.
The head of the incline, or entrance to
the mine, is about 1,000 ft. in verticle
bight above the mill. The ore is run
out of the mine by band cars, dumped
into a 3-X) ton bin; thence into the tram
way cars and lowered to the mill. The
hoisting works for the lower levels em
ploy a 40-horse power engine.
Wm. Pickett, the popular superintend
ent, is ably assisted by his twin brother,
D. C, between whom there is a striking
resemblance. The foreman, John
Lewellen, has the credit of being a na

THE DEADLY BULLET-
BLOODY AFFAIR BETWEEN
TWO PROMINENT CITIZENS-
Dr. J. C- Handy Shot and Probably
Fatally Wounded by Francis J.
Heney Particulars of
A shootiriflr affray tcok place today
that is greatly to be deplored. Dr. J.
C. Handy was shot in the abdomen by
Francis J. Ileney, Esq. Between the
two there is known to have been bad
blood for months, but it was sincerely
hoped by the friends cf both parties
that nothing serious would come of it.
The trouble is reported to have grown
out of the divorce case becween Dr. and
Airs. Handy, Mr. Heney having been
attorney for the latter. Of the ead af
fair particulars cannot now be given be
cause of the many conflicting reports in
circulation concerning it.
As tear as can be learned the meeting
took place on the corner cf Pennington
and Church streets and the first seen cf
it, wtien attention had been directed by
the 6hot, was the struggle of the two
men for the possession cf a revolver held
in Heney 's hand. Both were struggling
with all their power, one to retain and
theother to secure possession cf iL. Dr.
Handy fell under holding Heney close to
him with the revolver tight under Han-
dy's body and m Heney's hand. Handy
held Heney's wrist with all his strength.
and when approached by R.Rainsbury
and the Citizen reporter, the firct two
on the ground, each refused to loosen
his hold. "Dent shoot!" uDont shoot!"
was soon heard on all sides and Hecey
cried several times: "If he will let go I
won't bhoot!" He did not let go however,
and by another minute n throng had
gathered, among them LtLiy Teiiff
John Weigle. He, with assistance of
others, removed the n '-olver. both as
sailants strugging to keep it that the
other might not get iu possession.
"When they became separated it was
seen for the first that Dr. Handy was
shot. A powder burned hole in his
shirt was shown acd he said: "Take me
home at once. I have been shot. Frank
Heney did it." He was at ence led to
his office, a block away, supported on
As to what occurred previous to the
struggle it was witnessed by but two
persons, Chas. Hilde brant and Lautaro
Roca. They decline to make any
statement of the affair whatever. Mr.
Heney would only say that Dr. Handy
assailed him first- It is said that Dr.
Handy's revolver was not drawn from
his pocket during the strugde but was
taken from his pocket by young Rcca,
who handed it over to Deputy Sheriff
At the office the wound was hurried
ly examined and on the arrival of a car
ryall, in a few minutes, the crowd
gathered about was parted and the
wounded man carefully conveyed
home. He was at once undressed.
The wound bled little. At late ac
counts the doctor has been passinz
blood. He is under care cf Dr.
Spencer. An anaesthetic was admin
istered, to which he soon sucenmbed.
How serious his condition is it is not
possible to ascertain. Dr. Matas savs
that a wound in such a place is not
necessarily mcrtal, neither is the pas
sage of blcod of necessity a bad sign.
Heney at once gave himself up to
Under Sheriff Sullivan and engaged as
counsel S. M. Franklin. Esa and
Judge Wright. At 3 o'clock he was
taken before Judge Culver for examin
ation and his bend set at $6,000.
The bond was at once furnished in the
sum of $2000 each by W. S. Sturges,
Thos. Hughes and C. W. Wright
As the Citizen goes to press the ex
amination is in progress. Details of
the earlier parts cf the affair will be
given in tomorrow's issue.
Later. 3:30 p. m. Dpctors Fen-
ner and Spencer have removed the ball
from near the base of the spine, it
having passed almost through. The
patient is now suffering from the shock
and the outcome is uncertain.
