THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: 'TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 9, 1691.
THE LEADER CAPTURED. Oscar Rogers, the Train Rob ber, in Custody. Brought Into a Southern Pacifc Tel egraph Station by a Party of Ranchmen. Oscar Armstrong, aiiaa Rogers, the leader of the bandits who held up the Souther Facific at Maricopa a week ago last Sunday night, has been 'cap tured. So has O'Brien, a suspect of complicity in the robbery. Rogers was brought into Tacna, a telegraph station this side of Yuma, on Sundav night by a party of ranchmen who had captured him. He was turned over to a deputy of Sheriff Greenleaf's. of Yuma county, and as soon as possi ble an officer started to Florence with him. A teletrram was received here bv Southern Pacific Detective Smith an nouncinu the capture. Rogers denied his identity to his cap tors, but admitted he was at Maricopa the night of the mbbery. Beside filling ic a general way the description of him sent out by the railroad, he further die closed his identity by saying that he formerly lived in Globe and was a teacher of music. The trainmen who saw him claim that they will be able to recognize him, and he is otherwise connected with the crime by the finding in that vicinity of a Gila county poll tax receipt made ont to "O. Rogers." Rogers is a quite pro ficient musician, and for a short time played a piano at a saloon here. It is more difficult " to implicate 0?Brien. O'Brien waa taken yesterday morn ing near Casa Grande. There is no doubt that the man captured yesterday is O'Brien and that he is the man wanted, but it will be more difficult to implicate him in the robbery. Suspicion against him is based solely on the fact that he had been an associate of the men who are known to have taken part in it. But only three men were seen by the trainmen, Armer, Rogers and Donovan. It is pertain, though, that there were at least two, and Detective Smith thinks, three others. Donovan ia supposed to be still in the valley. That he came to Phoenix a week ago tonight is well known. He expected Rogers to follow but the ex pectation was not based on the knowl edge that Rogers intended to come or wanted to come. The two had evi dently not seen each other since they "were frightened away from the camp by the attack upon it by Sheriff Murphy and Deputy Widmer. valley and purchased a fruit and vegeta ble farm, located one mile west of Fort Collins, on which he has since resided. He has ever been an enterprising, pub-lic-8Dirited citizen of the county and has contributed much toward the de velopment of the fruit industry in this oart of the state. While the people of Fort Collins regret to lose eo valuable a citizen as Mr. Wetzler has ever proved to be, (hey one and all trust that his fondest anticipations maybe fully re alized in his far distant southwestern home."

The Leader of Arizona Popu lists in Town. His Views Concerning the Growth of the Party The Outlook in Arizona. Gen. Wm. O. O'Xeill, the Populist cindidate for delegate to congress, ar rived yesterday direct from New York. His coming had been expected by local leaders of the People's party and nearly allot them were in town awaiting him. Immediatly after the general had eaten hie breakfast he entered into a conference concerning the plan of cam paign. His time was so thoroughly oc cupied all day that a Republican re porter was able to hold only a very brief interview with him before he left for T.impe, where the campaign was open ed last night. . "How is Populism in the east? He wm asked. "It is spreading" replied the general. There will be 65,000 Peoples Party votes cast in New York. And not only in New York is the party gaining strength but everywhere. We will carry Colo rado, Kansas and Nebraska thisyear by largely increased majorities over those of two years ago. The movement is bound to win. It is not the growth of a political partv but. a forward move ment of the cause of humanity. It can no more be stopped or delayed than could the progress of the Republican party under the circumstance which surrounded its beginning." "But what of the campaign in Ari zona?" "We expect to make a showing, and I believe we will win. I think I will receive 5,000 votes," he replied. Thia estimate leaves about 7,000 to be divid ed between the general's two oppon ents. "But," he continued, "whatever Peoples' party strength may now exiEt, or develop at the election, I am in the fight for principle, and would work just as vigorously if there were not another worker in the party." The general waa asked an irrelevant question concerning the sale of his onyx mine. "I did not sell it," he caid ; "you can sell nothing in New York now." "And," he continued laughingly, "there will be no boodle in the Peoples' party campaign." A large number of Populists from Phoenix and vicinity went up to the rally at Tempe. A Valuable Acquisition. A Fort Collins, Col., paper has the following to say of a family lately lo cated in Phoenix: "Lewis Wetzler and family departed laEt Saturday for their new home at Phoenix, Ariz. Mr. Wetz ler has been a resident of Larimer coun ty since 1873, and one of ita best known and most highly respected citizens. He lived in Livermore ten years on the ranch now owned by Leslie Horsley, but eleven years ago he came to thia Two Hunters Engage in the Study of Natural History. Frank and Clay Meador were out hunting last Sunday. On the face of it there was nothing unusual about that but there was an unuBul incident at tending the hunt. The huntsmen en tered a thicket of sunflowers which covered an area of several miles. After traveling a considerable distance they became aware of an extraordinary com motion in a big herd of stock. Cattle were bellowing and mules weie braying and all seemed to be animated with fear or anger. The attentin of the animals seemed to be directed toward a tree whose branches the hunters could see at some distance hanging above the thicket. They approached it and found it surrounded by an open space nearly thirty feet in diameter. A huge cata mount had just descended from the tree and was crouching irresolutely at its base evidently frightened by the noise on all sides. "Look at that catamount, Clav," cried Frank. "Yes, I see it," replied Clay, and they both forgot that guna had ever been manufactured and looked at that catamount. They climbed an other tree so thev could get a better view of the cat. The catamount was of a retirine dis position and became embarrassed under the combined and concentrated gaze of the Meador brothers. He got up, trotted across the open space and dis appeared among the sunflowers. As soon as he was out of sight his late au dience remembered their artillery and began began bombarding the thicket but no more was seen of the cata mount. SOME SUMMER MORNING. Some morning when the wind has set his bugles all a-blowing, I shall have gone away, perhaps, without the flowers knowing That I, who knew their every want thrice happy in the tending Had gone to the lair gardens, where the sum mer has no ending. Some morning when the sea has crept up to the low, salt marshes, And all the stars have faded from the heaven's sapphire arches, When through the eastern gates, at last, the tardy night is going I shall have gone away, perhaps, without the birds a-knowing. And love shall have no power to hold me with caresses tender, For I shall pass the sunrise gold, the moon's white, silent splendor, Beyond the sunset and the dawn, where never word was spoken. Where, since creation's natal morn, the still ness slept unbroken. Oh, little rills that I have known, through tangled grasses straying, When I am gone, sing as of old, when all the world was Maying! Oh, clover blooms I love you so at every springtime's coming, Spread out your blossoms to the dew, and set the bees a-humming! I know not of the gates of pearl, on golden hinges turning, The glory bright, more than the light of count less suns a-burning, These things await me. I would be no slow, re luctant comer, And God will call me early on some morning in the summer. Jeannette La Flamboy, in Chicago Interior. GOLDEN EAGLE Livery Stable.
