EX-MAYOR COLE The New Treasurer the Territory. of Cheerful Order Given to Shoot! the Strikers' Heads Off. LOCAL BRIEFS. A Prisoner not Permitted to Answer a Telegram From His Dying Wife. By the Associated Press. Denver, June 7. John Shorten, editor of the Cripple Creek Herald, published in the interest of the miners who were arrested by deputies several days ago, arrived here today on parole. He tells a sensational story of the treatment be and others received at the hands of the deputies. "Fifteen or twenty of us," said Mr. Shorten, "were put in a Bchool house for the night without any blankets or beds. Some of the men were beaten and not allowed to speak to each othe or have any writing material. In the morning Under Sheriff Mullins' order was to 'watch the prisoners and if any refused to do what they are told shoot their damned heads off.' "We marched in single file and were given some rolls or crackers and what ever coffee was left in an old bucke. and then at the point of muskets were forced to pack water and food for the big camp. "The hardest case of all was that of a man named Sullivan, who got a tele gram at Cripple Creek telling him that his wife was dying and asking him to go to Leadvilie immediately. ' I saw this telegram and when we were cap tured Sullivan showed it to the depu ties but they refused to liberate him and would not even allow him to com municate with his dying wife or his family."

For an hour before the time set for the beginning of the entertainment, dozens of teams stirred the dust of Center street until it seemed as if half the realty of that district was floating in the circumambient. Ap nroachine the institution it was seen to be in a blaze of glory. The corridors were thronged with visitors from Phoe nix and the surrounding country. In the dormitory on the second floor where the exercises were to oe neia, migot De seen, amid the light of lamps and Jap anese lanterns, the torms of many seeking the best points ol vantage. Every seat was secured early. The windows and doors commanding a view of the scene were filled with spectators and over the shoulders of these peered manv others. It was a wonder and a delight to wit ness the performances of the Indian children. That they have been care fully trained and taught to sing, recite, march and deport themselves with trace and digmtv, was clearly exem plified. In the beginning Anton Alpine in his address of welcome delivered with ex cellent enunciation asked the aud ience not to criticize too severely. "We belong" said he, "to a race which until a few years ago has been deprived of the advantages of education, nut we will try and convince you by our exer- cises this evening that we can and ought to stand ou an equal footing with our white brothers and sisters. Surely they did. Many of the sum bers of the program were of a humor ous character given in costume and provoked shouts of mirth and applause At the left of the entrance sat a group of long-haired untutored children of the desert who as the entertainment proceeded grinningly showed their white teeth and their delight simulta neously. Too much praise cannot be meted to Superintendent Harwood Hall and If you want to keep cool this summer get an electric fan from Pratt Bros.

The New Official will File His Bond Today and Take Charge of the Treasury. B. The vacancy caused by the resigna tion of Territorial Treasurer Fleming was filled yesterday morning bythe ap pomtment of ex-Mayor Cole. The new treasurer's commission was made out yesterday afternoon. His official bond will be filed today and he will at once take charge of the office. Mr. Cole's appointment is favorably commented upon by business men in the city. His ability as a thorough financier in all branches of financiering from an intimate acquaintance with clerical details to the wise and proper disposition of an extensive public or private fund, is recognized. The new treasurer has lived in fnce- nix a little more than two years. As vice-president and active official of the Phoenix National bank he was thrown into association with the leading busi ness men of the territory. A year ago, at the earnest solicitation of a large number of the voters of Phoenix irre spective of party, he consented to be come a candidate for mayor on an inde pendent ticket. His election by an overwhelming majority followed and his official conduct lustihed the wis dom of the popular choice. To the careful training and methodi cal habits of a business man are united the qualifications of a long acquaint ance with public men and methods so that his appointment is regarded as wise one from both business and politi cal points of view. The following letter in which the governor reluctantly accepted the resig nation of Mr. t;ole s predecessor was addressed to Mr. Fleming yesterday morning. It Is a ' testimonial of the high regard in which that gentleman is held by the administration : - Phf.nix, Ariz , June 7, 18M. Hon. James A.

The Rio Verde Canal Will Be Operation Before the Close of 1895. in An Associated Press dispatch of un usual interest to the people of Phoenix was received here yesterday.

The city council last night made an attempt to concentrate the vice of Phoenix upon block 41, a tract of ground lying immediately northeast of the Maricopa & Phoenix depot. An ordi nance was passed under the terms of which every prostitute found off the reservation may be arrested and fined dailv. Prostitution there will be con doned once a month. The only objec tion urged against the measure is that it is calculated to gr.v publicity to a business which will be so situated as to give visitors an unfavorable opinion of Phoenix morality. The annual tax ordinance was passed It provides for a levy ot 70 cents on each $100 for the general fund and of 19 cents for the interest fund. The measure which is the most com pie t document ever prepared for passage by a Phoenix council appears elsewhere in this issue of The Republican. The disfiguring signboard question came up again. Attorney Cbalmers appearing for a lame number of citizens, said that since the adoption of the late resolution prohibiting the erection of any more of these signs on Washington street within certain limits, the benefi ciaries of the original ordinance were displaying great activity in.heading off similar prohibitive measures in other parta of the city. Accordingly an ordinance was passed forbidding the erection of any other signboards and the city maisbal was instructed to Bee that none were put np while the ordinance was becoming operative. Another resolution for the removal of those already erected was laid on the table. A communcation from Mrs. Guy Ben nett containing a complaint of the exercise of undue authority by Health Officer Tuttle, was laid before the coun cil. It charged that he had entered ber house against her protest to examine a case of diphtheria after he had been regularly notified that such a case ex isted. She complained that his man ner was unnecessarily authoritative and harsh. The communication closed with, a petition for bis removal from office. The matter was later taken up in the health committee in which the con sideration of the communication was cut short by the announcement by the city attorney that for seven years the ordinance under which the health of ficer was supposed to act had been reg ularly violated by him and all the phy sicians of the city. The attorney fur ther showed that these violations were the result of a continued direliction by the board of health. The investigation resulted in a reso lution to observe the law in the future and Mrs. Bennett's communication was laid over to be considered at a meeting of the committee tonight.
