THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 30, 1894.
THE LAST STRAW. An Englishman's Monotonous Experience With Bilks. He Comes to Phoenix to Take Pos session of a Non-Existent Domain. P. T. Carter is a young English gen tleman who has been making a tour of the United States solely for the benefit which Lord Bacon eays travel confers, the making of a well informed man. He arrived in Phoenix on Sunday morning and left last night for England. His cup of information was full and Bome was escaping over the brim. He had been bled with regularity and frequency ever since he stepped off the Cunarder, Lacania, several months ago. Bleeding is something a man cannot get used to by practice, for the supply of blood is limited. Mr. Carter be lieved the limit had been pressed yes terday morning. The last draught was not a heavy one compared with some others which had been drawn from him, but it was exhaustive. His last stopping place before com ing to Phoenix was Los Angeles. There he met a man who said his name was Hefler, P. T. Hefler. The similarity of initials constituted an affinity between the gentlemen. The affinity was very convenient for Mr. Hefler who was temporarily without funds but was rich in expectations and real estate. He was a resident of the Salt Eiver valley and the owner of a valuable tract of land eight miles nortwest of Phcenix. Immediately adjoining his domains was another unoccupied ex- panee which Mr. Carter could have for a song and Mr. Hefler kindiy offered to do the singing. In consideration of this prospective Tfocal service Mr. Carter paid Mr. Hefler's board bill and his fare to Phoe nix. They arrived here on Sunday morning and Mr. Carter says they were "booked" at the. Hotel Lemon. On Sunday night before retiring Mr. Hefler told Mr. Carter to bestir himself early as they would start about 8 o'clock for his desmesne. Carter was ready lone before that hour. In fact he was ready at any and all times during the night; he was ready asleep or awake, dreaming or thinking of the broad acres which the oppor tunity of befriending a man in tempo rary distress had bestowed upon. The air of his bed chamber was redolent with the perfume of orange blossoms wafted eight miles across the country from his holding. The only cloud upon the roseate sky of bis imagination was the apprehension of Apache raids and the scalping ot orange gatherers, pump kin huskers and other menials about the ranch. At 8 o'clock Mr. Hefler did not call ; neither had he called at 9. Ac 10 Mr. Carter instituted a search. At 11 he befean to suspect that Mr. Hefler was a fraud and at 12 or high noon he reported the matter to the sheriff with instructions to bring Hefler before a magistrate forthwith. For the guidance ot that official he left a written state ment of his arrangement with Hefler and an accurate description, so far as it goes, of him. Hefler is represented to be a man 5 feet 6 inches in perpen dicular measurement. According to his own statement he is the father of a son 9 years old. The sheriff and his deputies spent the afternoon yesterday naeapuring people who seemed to be about 5 feet 6 inches and taking the affidavits of 9-year-old boys on the sub ject of their relationship to Hefler. opening a few weeks ago of the new and handsomely appointed store in the Cole block it has been the unanimous verdict of patrons that such a complete assortment of high grade confections has never been seen in Phcenix and is seldom found in the larger cities. This achievement is the fruit of the fifteen years experience which Mr. DeMers has had as a candy maker in kitchens of the most renowned confectioners of Chicago and San Francisco. There is one feature about the De Mers candy which should be a consoling thought to all who invest in the tempt ing sweets. No man ever was more particular than he about the quality of the ingredients of his .candies. Noth ing deleterious, in any way injurious or even of inferior grade can find place in his stock of components. The new firm is now prepared to re ceive inquiries by mail as to prices and stock and to supply anything that was ever made in the candy line in any quantity, and to quote figures with which outside manufacturers cannot compete. HE SAW THE SHOW. FllmflammeCUo the Extent of Thirty Dollars. J . A. Lacy of Phcenix raid more to see the show than any other man who has vet reported. " Mr. Lacy was flimflammed out of $30 bv the short change method which has been so ex tensively employed and advertised for years. A ticket seller or an alleged ticket seller connected with one of the side shows expressed a wieh to ex change treasury notes for gold. He offered a premium of twenty-five cents. Mr. Lacy who was standing near hap pened to have three $29 gold pieces. The twenty-five cent premium was no inducement but he wanted to be ac commodating. He turned in the gold and the ticket seller counted out the money with an alacrity born of long practice. Mr. I acy would have sworn on a stack of revised bibles that he saw eleven $5 bills and $5 in silver. He counted the money with more delibera tion later and found that some of the $5 bills were ones. He applied to Justice Johnstone for a warrant for the ticket seller's arrest but he had had no introduction to him and so he called him John Doe. SHOW. NEW CANDY FIRM. Arizona Confectioners May Be Sup plied From Phoenix. A half interest in the new DeMers' candy factory and retail confectionery depot has been purchased by John Murray, who arrived in Phoenix a lew weeks aso from Southern California, and the firm will now be Btyled Murray & DeMers. This coalition means the in fusion o' sufficient capital to consider ably extend the wholesale part of the business. Mr. Murray iB a business man of experience as a caterer and confectioner as well as a traveling sales man. It will fall to him to visit the stores of all the townB of the territory where confectionery is sold and en deavor to persuade them that they can buy better and fresher goodB at lower price and at great saving of freight, be side encouraging an infant Arizona manufacturing industry. To be sure Mr. Murray must for the present, until the completion of the north and south road, confine his oper ations mainly to the southern part of the territory. The excellence of the quality of De Mers' confectionery has been thor oughly tented by the people of Phoenix and not found wanting.

THE Performance and Audience Com plete in All Departments. The show has been here, the Syndi cate American Shows and Paris Hippo drome. The parade was creditable and the performance was better. There were not many elephants, but thev were big ones. There was not a herd of camels, but what camels there were had two humps. The lions, tieers, hyenas and other carnivorous, herbiv orous and omnivorous animals were the same aB are seen in all shows Ever old and ever new. The joKes of the clown were well re ceived, though they were not of strictly recent date. The performance in the arena was good, better than the aver age circus affords, so that taking it all around the great Syndicate of Shows and Paris Hippodrome is better than any similar entertainment in Phcenix in recent years. The same old crowd, but only bigger than ever, turned out, and the showmen went away with their pockets full of Salt River valley silver and a determination to come back next year. The side show was prevalent and so were the Bhow camp followers, flim flam artists and army of thugs without which no great scenic and moral aggre gation is complete. The country'and the city furnished the usual quota of victims, those gentlemen who never read the newspapers ; who patronize the short change expert and know to a dead certainty under which particu lar shell the pea is. The man who could tell where the ace of hearts is was there and his tribe will ever flour ish. He won't try to tell next year; he has stepped out of the ranks but an other knowing person will step into bis place. The show was a success ; every thing was represented, the calliope, the chump and the liar who wouldn't give a cent to see it himself but has to take the children, you know. Lads Duel With Penknives. Hollidaysburo, Pa., Oct. 29. Roy Davie and Dent Molley, two little 9-year-old boys of DuncaBsville, a village one mile west of this city, quarrelled and fought a duel with penknives to day. Molley drove hia blade into his companion's abdomen and the little fel low's death is expected. Mrs. Cleveland to Christen It. Philadelphia, Oct. 29.

The , imperial library at Paris has 72,000 works treating of the French revolution. The power of steam was discovered by a Florentine officer, who was idly experimenting with a glass bottle and a few drops of water. Baron Nathaniel Rothschild, of Vienna, has conceived the generous idea of giving his famous castle of Reichenau, near Vienna, to the war min istry for transformation into an asylum for invalid officers. Lieut. Col. A. R. Saville, of the English service, claims that the cycle possesses numerous qualifications as a suitable mount which are not fulfilled in the body of any living animal, and argues that cyclists should be included among armed forces.
