Ashurst left Wednes day for Los Angeles, Cal., to be at the bedside of her son, Thomas, who was reported to be in a critical condition from sickness and the ef fects of a surgical operation which was deemed necessary to be per formed. After her departure a tele gram was received announcing his death. Andrew, Eddie and Maude, brothers and sister of the deceased, left Thursday for Los Angeles to be present at the buriaL" The above notice is taken from the Gem, published at Flagstaff, Ariz., of which city Mr. Ashurst was a resident. Thomas Jefferson Ashurst, aged twenty-one years and six months, was a native of Arizona, having been born and raised in this land of sunshine and had many friends in this section who will be greatly pained to learn of his unexpected death. He was a most promising young man, and like his brother, the Hon. Henry F. Ashurst, of this city, had great ability. At the time of his death he was attended by his mother, brothers and sister, all of whom had hastened to his bedside, For some time he had been suffer ing from appendicitis and an oper ation was recently performed, from which he never recovered. The News received a telegram stating that the interment took place yes terday in Evergreen cemetery at Los Angeles. Together with a host of friends of the sorrowing family we offer them our most sincere and heart felt condolences. FOUR OF A KIND. Quadruple Killing: on the Blsbee Rail road Orade. Last Sunday Jesse Hoffman, a farmer living near Duncan, went over to the railroad camp at Ante lope Pass with a load of vegetables and melons, which he hoped to sell. His brother, Wm. Hay den Hoff man, better known through the country Push Wadley, was at the camp. The brothers were eating a melon when a Mexican, named Navor Sanchez, grabbed a piece of the melon and Jesse knocked him down. Sanchez went after a gun and came back with one and a friend, named Benito Canalt-s, also armed. As they came up to the Hoffmans he pulled his gun and ordered them to stop, but they con tinued to advance. Sanchez got so close to Hoffman that he knocked his gun up when he shot, and then the two Mexicans and the two Hoff mans commenced shooting. When it was over Hayden Hoffman was dead and Jesse Hoffman was shot through the lungs. The last shot firtl was by Jesse Hoffman, who was down, at Sanchez, the man who commenced the trouble, who was nearly a hundred feet away, hitting him in the head and killing him instantly. The other Mexican, Canales, was shot three times, and it is supposed he is dead, although his body was not found. There were fifteen shots fired and eleven took effect, ten in the four men, and one in the ankle of W. II. Brown, who keeps a saloon. This is pretty good shooting. The killing out at Antelope Pass Sunday was the most satisfactory function of its kind ever recorded in this section of the world. There OUot Bank in Northern Arizona P.afhtihad.

All of these men were killed and no bystander was hurt, except the bar-keeper, who got one of the four stray bullets through his ankle. The men who went in to kill were successful.
