THE AM EPUBHCAN. FOURTH YEAR. PIKENIX, ARIZONA, FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 19, 1894. VOL. V. NO. 129. ZONA BITES AND BEATS Charge Made Against a New York Woman. Maltreats Her Husband in aHorrible Way. Bites Him and Then Beats Him Beyond Endurance. , Mr. De Rlne is Large and Muscular, But Little Mrs. De Ring and Her Teeth Are Too Much for Him. By the Associated Press. New York, Oct. 18. Phillip De 'Ring is a big, muscular fellow, employed as a mechiniet in the Riverside Fife works at Patereon, N. J. His wife is a email woman, robust and active. Her hus band thinks a man who works six days a week should rest Sunday, but Mrs. DeRing deems it a paramount duty to at tend church and pray on the day of rest. This difference of opinion has led to a disruption of the household, and the affair was dragged into court, when the husband was called before Recorder Stewart yesterday to answer a charge of non-support. De Ring said he could not live with his wife because of her violent temper and sharp teeth. "She his bitten me." he continued, "until my back and arms are black and blue with marks. One Sunday night, after coming from church, she rushed at me like a mad woman. I did not go to church that evening and was sitting on the stoop when she came borne. With a knife in her hand she vowed that she would kill me. Then she struck me on the side of the head and kicked me off the stoop. She wiped her feet upon me to show her contempt, kicked me and picked up an iron horee and threw it at me. "After I got up I went upstairs to bed, thinking 1 could escape further abuse, but she followed me. She even dared me to lie down. I wouldn't be dared and threw myself on the bed. She held me do en and kicked aiif beat me until I became ill. I wanted to re lieve my sickness, but she wouldn't let up, but fell upon me and began hitting my arms, shoulders and back until I had to call for help." A number of witnesses testified that they had seen black and blue tooth marks on De Ring's arms, shoulders and back. Mrs. De Ring confessed that she had bitten her husband. On the Sunday night referred to she said she was "justified" in biting her hus band in "self defense," as he tried to cram a pillow down her throat. The recorder intimated that the hus band was right in attempting to -cushion his wife's teeth. De Ring was re quired, however, to give bonds for the payment of $2 a week for the support of his wife and child. He said he had offered to support both, but the wife insisted on asking him to court. It is against his nature, he said, to fight with a woman and that waB why he took so much punishment from his wife. Women Voters IndiKnant. Chicago, Oct. 18. Attorney-General Moloney's opinion jthat county clerks are not obliged to provide the women with ballots provoked' a good deal of feminine indignation. The county election board was ap pealed to and it promised to give the women separate booths and ballots. Later the women were informed that Moloney had said that his interpreta tion of the law was that if they did vote their ballots would be thrown out. "The supreme court has never de cided a case involving the question as to who shall provide the women with ballots, and as the law is silent on that point one attorney's views are as good as another's," Baid Mrs. Catherine Waugh McCulloch, of the Democratic women's committee. "One thing is certain, women may vote for uni versity trustees. If the county clerks do not provide separate ballots they can bring their own ballots and vote them, too." New Mexico's Coal Output.

The federal officers have arrested a colored man named JameB Tyler on the charge of counterfeiting and he was today bound over to the federal court and will prob ably be tried at the present term being held in Leavenworth. Tyler was very bold in his work, having gone to an es tablishment where he was a stranger and ordered his dies for counterfeiting. The proprietor took his order, and, be ing very suspicious, set an early time for furnishing the dies. He communi cated his suspicions to the federal au thorities and the man with elevated ideaB of his financial abilities was soon in the jail. His work was in raising silver quarters to the denomination of $10 gold pieces. The figures on the two coins are very similar, and although the silver piece is eomewnat smaller than the gold eagle, yet the difference is hardly noticeable to those not ac customed to handling the gold. He made the change by eliminating the first four letters of the word "quarter," changed the final "r" to "n," and then added "s" to the word "dollar." In order to do a better job at changing these letters hs ordered the dies, which caused the iron hand of the law to lay hold of him. A Terrible Boiler Explosion. Corey, O., Oct. 18.

"The great surgeon who made the world his debtor," is what Oliver Wen dell Holmes once called Dr. Bigelow. He graduated from Harvard in 1837, traveled extensively, 'abroad and re ceived many hospital appointments, literary honors, honorable degrees and elections to foreign medical bodies. His greatest distinction, however, was in making the original announcement ot the discovery of anaesthesia in 1846 and performing the first" operation un der ether. ; Tried to Burn a Town. Canton, O., Oct. 18 Several weeks ago an incendiary fire brokevmt in Dal too, which almost wiped out-;h town. Suspicion was directed toward Christine Rainier, and when he was arrested last week the authorities barely prevented him from being lynched. But at the trial sufficient evidence was not pro duced to hold him. Today the village was again thrown into a state of excite ment not only by the re-arrest of Reimer, but ot his whole household as well. Beimer and his wife are over 60 years old. One of their daughters, Ro6a, is a school teacher, aged 22, and the other, Pearl, is 13 years old. The statement is made that new evidence has been discovered, and the hearing of the quartette is being hotly con tested. Evidence oso far intro duced iB based on the school teacher's threat of vengeance. The family is poor but stylish, and when a son died a year ago a high-priced casket was pur chased and an expensive funeral ar ranged. Failing in other efforts to collect, the undertaker attached the school niarm's salary. A groceryman secured a long.neglected bill in the same manner. These two stores ad join, and the fire started in their rear. Before the fire was Btarted the village water supply was stopped by clogging the pipes with carpet, and the hose of the hand engine was disconnected. On the night before the fire the school teacher wbb met in a store with a can of kerosene, and sheexplaiaed that she had been working with the lamps. The Reimer residence started in the conflagration, but was put out. In the upper part was found a lot of old clothes saturated with oil. Great care is being taken by the officers to protect the family, but further violence is feared. AIR THROUGH A GAS PIPE. For Two Long Days Far Under Ground.

Mr. Hawley is the city jailer and a more efficient Cerberus Phoenix never had. He serves two masterB and notwithstand ing the commonly interpreted meaning of a biblical aphorism he serves them with advantage to. both and with credit to himself. He is a fighting member of the Sal vation Army and carries bis religions principles into the discharge of his offi cial duties. A prisoner who is unusually bad and in extraordinary need of salvation is carefully watched by bis jailer until the expiration of his sentence. When the law has gotten .through with him Al. steers him against the Army. If anything comes of it Al. stays with him takes him with him to supper and breakfast and keeps a fatherly watch over him until he thinks that his con version is permanent. In this way he has been the instrument of reclaiming several men whose cases were believed to be honeless. After five months one of them is faithful to the Army and the others more recently enrolled show no Bign of desertion, it is true that his method tends to reduce the regular number of police court habitues. Al. says he used to be tha way himself not a police court subject, but care less as to religion and morality. So like CJueen Dido he learns to pity woes so like biB own. THE NON-PAYING BRANCHES.

Breckinridge has been suspended from communion by Mount Horeb church in Lafayette county. The pastor of the church, the Rev. Charles T. Thomp son, gives the Kentucky Citizen the following statement of the action of the church: "Last Sunday morn ing at the Mount Horeb church the pastor read publicly the action of the church concerning Col. W. C. P. Breckinridge, who had made to tbem a confession of his guilt and asked the prayers and love of his brethren in leading a Christian life." The unanimous decision of the officers was that while accepting his repent ence as sincere and heartfelt the great publicity of the sin demanded some public action, so he was suspended from the sacrament till Feb. 1, 1S95. The law of the Presbyterian church, Book of Church Orders, paragraph 158, is "definite suspension is administered when the credit of religion, the honor of Christ, and the good of the offender demands it, even though he may have given satisfaction to the court."

A meeting will be held at the Pres byterian church tonight for the pur pose of reorganization for Chinese mission work in this city. Nearly a year ago several self sacrificing young ladies and gentlemen, without any special organization, enlisted the in terest of about twenty-five of the better class of Chinese and started a night school. The Chinese rented two rooms in the second story of a building on First street between Adams and Monroe, and the school was conducted there for a period of five months. The Chinese proved to be industrious, en thusiastic and apt and the result was extremely satisfactory to teactieis and pupils. The want of a complete organi zation, however, was felt anions the teachers. The school was discontinued on the approach of warm weaiher, but the Chinese retained the rooms, paid the rent, $7 a month during the sum mer months, hopinsr that the work would be resumed this fall, and it is to be on a broader and better defined Bcale. The plan is to place the school under the control of members of the four churches, the Presbyterian, Methodists North and South, and the Baptist. Instruction will be given on four nights of each week, and the work is to be equally divided among the churches. The number of pupils will be consider ably larger than last year. THE FIESTA PARADE. Real Estate Men Interested in the Carnival. Elaborate preparations are being made for the grandest street parade ever seen in Phcenix, next Thursday. It will be a holiday long to be remember ed in the history of the city. A num ber of energetic real estate men who understand that a success in this first attempt means a repetition in the future by which from early advertising thousands of strangers can be attracted to the valley and the eastern and even the foreign press will notice as they have in the California festivals. The spring comes earlier here and the flowers bloom sooner than in any other part of the United States. By follow ing the same line of advertising and pursuing the same tacticB the Salt River valley could by a floral show early in the spring attract more visitors to the land where the flowers blossom all the year round. Like Mardi Gras of New Orleans the carnival Krewe of Kansas City and the nesta ot Los Angeles and ban Jose, I'hoanix can have a fiesta that will make her as famous as anv of the carnival cities. The main thing !s to make a good start, and a big thing of the first show and the people of the territory will ever look forward to the fieBta of Phoenix as a thing of joy.
