A ."ir. ".V:-.o Thought He Was of no Use to Himself or Others and Might as Well Be Dead. Mathias Potsch. an Austrian, was found dead on a cot yesterday morning at Frank Kay's ranch, nine miles north west of the city. A messenger came to Phoenix and informed Justice Kincaid. A coroner's jury was impaneled and a visit was mad to the ranch. The body was brought to town and the inquest was held m the afternoon. It was developed that Putsch was an Austrian by birth, that he came to Ari zDna about ivjo years ago from no one knows where. He was suffering from luai? trouble. He lived with several ' families in the valley and became pretty well known. Last Saturday he went out to Kay's ranch and was en Rajred as a cook. On Friday night he retired ap usual to a cot under a tree not far fmm the house. When Mr. Kay went, to awaken him yesterday morning lie found him cold and dead. There was a thought, not a suspicion, ft,. i, .:i,t vBve E-iicide, but it was dispelled during the examin ation. One witness had heard Potsch aay that he was of no use to himself or anybody else and might as well be dead, but he bad never said that he intended to invite death. He never ket morphine or opium, or any other medicine but whisky about him. The juiy returned a verdict of death from natnral causes. The deceased bas a father and two brothers liviug in Austria, but no rela tives in this country. So far as known he had never written nor received a let during his residence in Arizona. Papers found among his effects showed him to be an Odd Fellow, and the local lodge of that order proceeded to perform the last office ior a brother, and directed the funeral, which will take place at 3 o'clock this afternoon from Randal & Davis' undertaking He was triad, ranvintpd anrl nn tantwl . . i. .

Frank Howard, a convict at Yuma, sent up from Pima county in July, 1893, for perjury, was pardoned yester day by Governor Hughes. The pardon was recommended by the board of prison commi&cioners and the applica tion was seconded by most of the grand and trial jurors in the case and by nearly all other court officials of Pima county. It is shown that the appeal was dis missed by the supreme court on an alleged informality and that serious errors alleged to have been committed ir,..-;... .::..td. All the circumstances point to the conclusion that Howard became a vic tim of misdirected justice. His trouble grew out of his testimony in the case of S. L. Sparks, who was on trial for kill ing a cow which did not belong to him. The witness was arrested for perjury. If his testimony could be shown to be true Sparks would be acquitted. It is said that parties intereDted in a convic tion visited Howard in jail and told him that if he would confess to perjury they would procure a discontinuance of the proceedings against him. He re fused to do so, saying that he would undergo punishment rather than swear away the freedom of an innocent man. The Miller hat presents a more pron ounced novelty than any of the other leaders.
