THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: 1 SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 27, 1894.
THE SECOND DAY The Continued Success of the Fiesta. An Exciting- Steer-Tying Contest. A Change and Enlargement of the Program Today. The Indian Attack on the Settler's Cabin Will Be Reproduced Tonight. me second day ol trie fiesta was a continuation of the success of the first notwithstanding the interference of the etorm. The parade was divested only of the trades display feature of the first day, but there was the ladies' band, the painted Indians, the old stage coach, lithe, active cowboys and the never-failing contingent made up of the small boy and the burro. The procession formed at the Dublin corral at 2 o'clock and proceeded to the park followed by a crowd smaller per haps than that which witnessed the initial performance, but sufficiently large to be gratifying to the manage ment. There was", as had been announced, a material change of program. The feats began with an exhibition of trick pony riding by 14-year;old Oscar Scott. The Dony wasn't as big as a horse ; neither was the rider as big as a full-grown cow boy, but taking the 'comparative size of boy and pony into consideration, the per formance was foHy as creditable as the expert riding of the cowboys the dav before. . . . The cowboy exercise bv Dink Mead ows, George Felton and Arizona Charlie was particularly excellent. . ? The skill shown in the lassoing of wild horses is' said to have been the most tkillful exhibition of the kind ever witnessed in the valley, and Juan Fernado displayed a superiority in the handling and riding, and ultimate sub jection, of the most unregenerate .broncho 01 the lot.' A pony race by, the Scott children was an interesting feature of the after noon. The Roman chariot race was, if possi ble, more exciting than on the day be- tore, jAorsesana drivers appeared in better form. The pace was wilder and more reckless. The Roman chariot race in this; case was no- hippodrome, out was driven lor blood, and it was a foregone conclusion only that the swifter team would come in first. The team driven by Miss Higgins was the winner. A character which had been over looked in making up yesterday's pro gram was a buil pup but he was there J'ist the same as if he bad not been forgotten by Mr. Gore. He entered himself in the chariot race and was . beginning to make things interesting for one of the drivers when he felt the tightening of a lariat about his neck. The other end was in the hands of that Knight of the Riata, Geo. Felton. The steer tying contest was a very creditable performance., The time made by the participants was as follows: M.- Meadows, 1 minute, 38 seconds ; Rit. Henderson, 1 minute, 28 seconds; Oscar Felton, 2 minutes, 20 seconds. George Felton was also in the contest, but was handicapped by a steer which was there for business rather than amusement and dead next to him self in a scrimmage With cowboys. A broken rope set him at liberty and be fore he could be roped again there was an improvised 'boll fight in which Fel ton narrowly missed connection with the infuriated animal's horns. Ho ac count was taken of the record. The boys' burro race closed the events f the day. The contestants were Ernest Stroud and Forrest Richmond. The race was humorous rather than ex citing and was won by young Stroud. The principal feature this afternoon will be the ladies' hurdle race. The riders will be Miss Higgins, Miss Melborne and Miss Hamilton. The program will be otherwise changed and enlarged. During the day a number of cabins will be erected on the grounds and tonight will occur for the first time the realistic reproduction of the Indian midnight attack upon an isolated set tlement. The rain of yesterday has left the ground in excellent condition for an excellent display this afternoon. Today will be children's day. Children will be admitted to the grounds for ten cents, to the grand stand for fifteen. DEVOURED OF REMORSE, The Cause of Inspector Waterbury's Decay. Postoffice Inspector Geo. H. Water bury came to town yesterday. The most intimate friends of the genial in spector had to look at him the second time to recognize him. His old-time bright features were wan shrunken and clouded and his hearty laugh had dwin dled to a painful croak. If any are curious as to the cause of the inspector's dilapidation and they should ask him in the reprehensible slang of the period, "What's eatin' you?" the inspector would probably reply that he was being devoured of remorse. Nobody would believe that he would willfully commit a crime which would breed a troubled conscience and he has not done so, but he has been the instrument in the hands of circumstances, if circumstances may be said to have hands, of inflicting a wrong, the memory of which will haunt him as long as Colonel Bissellis at the head of the post office department. It happened when Inspector Water bury was in Pbcenix the last time but one. He was detained here several days by the strike, and had lodgings in the Commercial hotel. A few dava be fore Inspector Waterbary arrived there came a man from Kansas City, a con sumptive, in the last stage of that terri ble'disease. His physicians had told him that he was beyond the reach of human skill. Even the dry and health ful atmosphere of Arizona could not save him or, indeed, prolong his life. It could, though, make death less painful. So he came here to die amid veaceful and quiet surroundings and with the greatest possible degree of comfort. But luck was against him and he found himself face to face with death in its most violent and vociferous mood. Inspector Waterbury was assigned a room next to him. It is an open eecret among the inspector's most intimate friends and all the hotel keepers in the half dozen states and territories in his district that he holds the Police Gazette belt as the champion snorerof America. The second morning after his arrival the consumptive called on him with tears in his eyes and told him that he was intensifying the agonies of a dying man and begged him to leave the coun ty. The inspector prepared to leave the following morning, but the con sumptive died the night before. Dissolution of Partnership. The Co-Partnership of M.

The Prosecuting Witness Against Him Explains Her Unwillingness to Testify. It has been established that W. H. Ferguson the sneak thief arrested at the Gregory house last Thursday is a more thorough crook than he was then sus pected to be. Among his effects there were discovered yesterday implements for converting stolen jewelry into un recognizable masses of metal. They consist of a blow pipe a mixture of charcoal and English walnut shells lines with a substance resembling plaster of paris. The shells were used to receiving the drippings from the melting metal. A gold button was found in one of them. There were besides a number of gold rings which he had evidently not had time to convert. Miss Lichteustein, nowMr3. Kirchoff. whose room he had burglarized yester day explained to Justice Kincaid the cause of her apparent unwillingness to testily against ierguson at his prelim inary examination the day before. She said that when he returned to her room to tell her that he would restore her watch if Bhe would not appear against him he told her that if she did make Mm any trouble he would kill her if it was the last act of his life, She was intimidated by the threat and would willingly have accepted his terms. Beside, she was to be married that night and so had another reason against appearing in court. The matter had gone so far, however, that she was unable to prevent his arrest and was forced to become a prosecuting witness.

PREMEDITATION DENIED. Members of trie Fire Department Explain. Members of the fire department called at The Republican office yester day to correct an impression that the alarm described in The Republican of yesterday was planned for the purpose of interfering with the fiesta parade. They Bay that the alarm was unwar ranted and that if the department or those members of it who took part in the run had known the circumstances no run would have been made. The greatest care, they say, was exercised during the run down Washington street and they deny that any person was struck and knocked down by the engine or hoee carts as was re ported. Chief Goodman says that he investigated the rumor that the alarm Heard from at Flagstaff Less Than a Week Ago. Mr. Phil. Brennan yesterday received a letter from his brother, Dr. D. J. Brennan of Flagstaff, in reply to an in quiry made concerning Herman Woolf, the Indian trader. Dr. Brennan writes that Woolf had been seen at various points in the vicinity of Canon Diablo at different periods ranging from ten to thirty days previous to the date of his letter and that only the day before an order for merchandise had been received from him by a firm in Flagstaff so that there could be no doubt that he was still alive. Dr. Brennan also says that he had been told by Woolf that he had a brother, an officer in the German army, thus leaving no doubt that the Canon Diablo trader is the man con cerning whom the German consul at San Francisco had made inquiry in the interest of Maj. Gen. Woolf of Dresden, Germany. People Bitten by a Mad Dosr. Wichita, Kan., Oct. 26. A mad d'og ran through he down-town streets here this morning snapping at every thing in its way. Half a dozen people were bitten. The worst case is that of Mabel Hensworth, a little girl, whose hands were badly lacerated. She will be taken to the Pasteur iustitute at Chicago. A large number of dogs were also bitten. Exposure to Changes of Tempera ture. Public men are constantly liable to danger arising from sudden changes of temperature; sometimes from heat to cold, sometimes the reverse. Henry Thome, traveling secretary of the Y. M. C. A., writes from Exeter Hall, Strand, "London, February 2nd, 1888: "I desire to bear my testimony to the value of Allcock's Porous Piasters. I have used them for pains in the back and side arising from rheumatic and other causes, never without deriving benefit from their application. They are easily applied and very comforting. Those engaged as I am in public work which involves exposure to sudden changes of temperature, will do well to keep a supply of Allcock's Porous Plasters in their portmanteaus."
