MONUMENT FOR THE MURDERED. The Central Pacific Out of Sacra mento Still Guarded. Sacramento, Aug. 24. A fund of $300 subscribed by the citizens of Sacra mento for the purpose of erecting a suitable monument over the graves of Privates Dugan, Clarke, Byrne and Lubberding, of the Fifth United States artillery, who lost their lives on July 11, at the railroad trestle near this city through the act of striking train wreck ers, has been turned over to Col.

Messrs. McKnight & Geary, a firm of Washington attorneys, who have been employed to look after Arizona's inter- esta in the matter of its claim against the government of $30,000 for the sup port of Indian prisoners convicted of. offenses against the government, have remedied a mistake which would have been fatal to the claim. The original measure did not specify from what appropriation the amount should be paid. Messrs. McKnigbt & Geary have caused a provision to be in serted in the deficiency bill just passed and signed yesterday, directing the at torney general to pay the territory out of the appropriation for 1895 ;such a sum as he may find to be equitably due. As before stated the original claim was $30,000 ; it now amounts to about $2,000 more. No doubt the greater part, if not all of it, will be paid. PERSONAL. S. H.

HE'LL NOT BLOOM The California Demo cratic Convention Makes Budd Its Guber natorial Candidate. The Man From Stockton Lands on the Third Ballot. Barney D. Murphy's Friends Charge . the Federal Brigade With , Treachery. By the Associated Press. San Francisco, Aug. 24. The Demo cratic convention accomplished the most arduous task before it today in the selection of a nominee for governor, Jas. H. Budd of Stockton, an attorney, and an ex-congressman being nomi nated on the third ballot. When the gubernatorial nominee ap peared upon the stage he received an ovation and also a shower of boquets. Budd promised in his epeech to stand true to the pledges of the party plat form. I am a young man," he said, "only 43; I. have lived all my life here and was educated in California. 1 know too much to make a mistake through fool ishness and I have too much sense to make other kinds of mistakes. I will stand on the convention's platform during the four years I am going to be governor." Murpny's friends accuse surveyor ot the port, W. 11. English, of treachery towards Murphy, saving that the fed eral brigade which, with the exception of Daggett were ostensibly for Murphy, were really for any other candidate. They allege that English succeeded in killing Murphy for United estates sen ator in the interest of English's friend, W. W. Foote. P. M. Larue, of Sacramento, was nominated for railway commissioner from the first district. DISTURBERS OF A MEETING. Annoyance Occasioned by Hood lums at Norton's Grove. Attendants at the camp meeting at Norton's grove have been annoyed by the operations of a small hoodlum ele ment contributed largely bv Phoenix and assisted by a eontingent from the country. It has been nroperlv suggested that a peace officer from this precinct be sta tioned there. Most of the attendants are tax payers and orderly citizens and are entitled to the same protection which would be afforded attendants at a fiesta or a similar public gathering at which there is usually an officer pres ent. The disturbers of the peace are not vicious, out misintormea as to tne seri- ourness of their offense. For their en lightenment the following, section 7 of the revised statutes, is published : 'Every person who willfully disturbs or disquiets any assemblage of people met for religious worenip, Dy noise. profane discourse, rude or indecent be havior, or by any unnecessary noise either within the place where such meeting is held, or so near it as to dis turb the order and solemnity of the meeting, is guilty of a misdemeanor."

The Journal-Miner of WedneBdav gives the following account of a hor rible murder near Jerome tne nay be fore: A frightful tragedv was enacted yes terday afternoon ten miles from Jerome on the new railroad, in which Bob Par sons cut the throat of Bohemia, a Mex ican prostitute, with whom he had until a few days ago been living. The particulars are very meager, but enough was learned previous to the departure of the stage to show that the crime was one of the most fiendish and cowardlv. The victim a few daysago dis carded Parsons, and stealing upon her as she slept in a tent, almost severed her head from her bodv and then, with that demeanor for which villains of this type are noted, quietly walked away, and, incidentally, stated what he had done. Parson's named will be recalled by many Prescottites who knew him as only a drunkard and good-for-nothing man. who has slumbered in jail half a dozen times on as many charges for his utter worthiness and quarrelsome dis position. Deputy Sheriff Roberts immediately arrested the murderer and has him in custody at Jerome awaiting the arrival of Deputy Merritt, who left this even ing. The deceased woman was but 23 vears old, and had been in Jerome for some years. The Yuma Indian Treaty. Among the bills which emerged in good order from the present session of congress was one approving a treaty with the Yuma Indians, throwing open obout 30,000 acres opposite the town of Yuma.

The reBt will be divided into ten-acre lots and sold at auction after an advertise ment by the secretary of the interior for sixty days. The sale will attract a large number of visitors and capitalists Insurance. The New York Life Insurance Company. General Managers For Arizona.
