Miss Rose Marston. who was ap pointed administratrix of the estate of her father, the late N. A. Marston. having entered the married state and therefore under the law becoming no longer eligible to perform the func tions of that office, application was mode today by herself and mother for the appointment of Warwick Scott as administrator. It was a democratic legislature that passed the first tax-exemption law making taxless railroads a possibility In Arizona. The bill was signed by a democrat governor, too. All the shouts they make about the "taxless should foe directed against the party making such things possible rather than against the creators, produced by the law of such property. Journal- aimer. A Phoenix paper In commenting on Col. Wilson's speech in Phoenix says that "the candidate did not get closer to the present that 1S78 in his argu ment." This is a remarkable showing for Col. Wilson, and demonstrates that he is progressive. During previous campaigns in which he haspartieipated the closest he ever reached to the liv ing present was the time of Jeffer son. When he succeeded in passing the revolutionaty period he was thought to be making pretty good time. Journal-Miner. '"No sah, I didn't took no watch.'' said Belle Washington to Justice Kin- caid today and notwithstanding the evidence looked a little shady Inas much as the property had been restor ed to ithe owner the defendant was dis charged with the adminition to be on her guard In her future conduct as a grave suspicion hung over her fair name and fame and if she was sum moned hefore the magistrate again a rapidly falling temperature might come over his kindly heart. The residence of Mr. Olson on Jaek eon -street was robbed a few days ago apparently by one of the numerous tramps who infest the neighborhood of the depot. He made a careful and tiiorongh search and ransacked the premises but contented himself with articles of small bulk and which could be converted into money, such as a gold watch, trinkets, ect. The thief or thieves had the audacity to prepare a nieal, and seem to have entered the house from the side. Other household ers had better he on their guard agddnst similar occurrences. Citizen. O. B. Hardy's foreman who was here yesterdaay from the Whetstones more than verifies the reports made a week ago. ihe copper ground is some twelve miles from Fairbank station in the mountains last mentioned. A depth of 180 feet has been reached and the men have been workingadrife over 20 feet on a four-foot ledge. The ore is gray copper or what may be termed a peacock shade and goes from 45 to CO per cent, in copper, besides a good col or of gold and silver. It is said the gold will run $60 to the ton. The road from the group to Fairhunk is as level as a table and the haul of copper if made to Fairbank. will be easy. Mr. Hardy is south at present having made a trip to Nogales this week. Prospector.

Dr. Wylie was summoned and did all he could to relieve the unfor tunate, who was later sent to the county hospital. It Is said he recover ed consciousness sufficiently at on time to say "They got all my money." which leads to the theory that he was sandbagged and robbed. His business was that of a peddler In the mining camps of the surrounding mountains. It is though his recovery . la very doubtful. Mr. C. F. Doyle Kisner were marrie noon and at once at 1425 Van Buren is a recent arrival Iowa, and the grooS of the Phoenix Pit Dr. H. F. Walter screw worms from the nose and soft palate of E. W. Boggs, the test patient received at the county hospital. Boggs was a prospector and a worm or worms entered his head while he slept. This is the second case of this kind recorded in Arizona. Prospector. Julio Marron has two reasons for great rejoicing. The first is that he is a good republican and the signs of the times point to some glorious news from the polls in a fe wdays. The other cause for his happiness and probably the most engrossing subject just now was the arrival at his home yesterday of a fine girl baby. The Baraca class of the Baptist church will give an "art" social tonight to which the public is invited.
