THE WILLIAMS NEWS ANCIENT ARIZONA. Prehistoric Rain of Um Territory. Richest Field la the U. S. One of Arizona's most extraordi nary sources of interest and attrac tion, especially to those scientific ally inclined, lies in her almost un equalled field of prehistoric ruins. United States Special Agent IIolz singer, whose duties have called him to make broad researches in this direction all over the Pacific slope, pronounces Arizona the rich est field of the kind in the United States. A recital of his experience in this line in Arizona would supply matter for a volume, and a volume of interest. In architecture, stone work prevails almost exclusively, and their masonry was remarkably fine. On one 160 acres there are many buildings, two of which con tain over 600 rooms each. The most remarkable building visited by him had a 732-foot front with an arc-shaped rear 1,600 feet long, and had been five stories high and contained 1,200 rooms, 500 of which have been explored. Over 10,000 worth of turquoise has been taken out of the building, in pieces of little value to pieces the size of a man's hand. Immense quantities of wearing apparel, in cluding feather blankets, stockings made of human hair, and sandals of the yucca fibre have been dis covered. In some of the larger buildings a great deal of timber is found, many of which measured eighteen inches in diameter and forty feet in length. The timber is mostly pine, though no timber of that kind exists in that jart of the territory at the present time. Questioned as to his theory of the disappearance of these people, Mr. Holzsinger stated that while much doubt surrounded the subject, he was driven to the conclusion that it was a failure of the water supply which drove them out of the country. lie said that traces of ditches, canals and reservoirs were everywhere in evidence, and the people evidently had a constant struggle to obtain water, while the scarcity of human remains is against the theory of sudden over whelming disaster, and favors the theory that the people departed in detail. Evidences of a religion of some kind are plentiful, large circular enclosures, something on the plan of the old Druidical ruins, being common. The subject is one to which the press and people of Arizona should devote more attention, as being a matter of intense interest, especial ly to the people of the east, where such things are rare. Albuquerque Citizen. IN MEMORY OF THE DEAD roxrLCDio prom r-AOS mo. their all in the performance of their duty. "William McKinley is dead. There is a very wail in the words. Poetic legends say that two thousand years ago on the shore of the gulf of Patras a mighty voice was heard crying in the mountains and wilder ness saying Great Pan is dead!" "Great Pan is dead!" and today throughout this great land over the mountains and valleys, over the golden fields and by the bank of many enchanted rivers in this nation, a great voice, the voice of the American people, is heard call ing in tones of grief and anguish, and saying, 'William McKinley, the good president is dead.' "The stars and stripes are border ed with black and in mourning now. The national arms are reversed and all drums are muffled. The greedy grave, whose hungry mouth is never filled, has claimed William McKin ley for its own. Unlike other mar tyred presidents that were murder ed when the wrath of war rent the land and the rivers ran red with blood, and when party feeling tore asunder the tenderest ties of friend ship, McKinley was assassinated when the spiders were weavingwebs in the cannon's and when the white dove and the olive branch were the signs of the time. Referring to the president's char acter Mr. Ashurst said: "McKinley stood for years in that fierce white light that beats about a throne and presidency and never during the long course of his public career did any tainted breath dim tlte bright mirror of his reputation and character."
