SILVER DICK. He Speaks of Himself and the Presidency. He Does not Regard Himself as an Available Candidate. He Is for Silver Not for Bland. By tbe Associated Fresa. Denver, Colo., May 9. El-Congressman Richard F. Bland, of Missouri, who will lecture in Denver next Satur day night on "Tbe twenty yean battle for silver and the fight yet to come," is resting quietly in this city as he is still suffering from the effects of grip. He said today: "I had not heard of the efforts of my friends in St. Louis in the way of enuring for me the nominationfor president by free silver democrats in 1896. In fact I do not think that I am the proper man to select. In my pulbic life I have never that a great' many and we ask of those their orders with i deal of time and 1 secure work tor we find some satis- made a fight to get personal advantage for myself. Especially is this true in the silver cause. I have fought for the cause itself. In doing so I have made too many enemies among my demo cratic friends for me to be an available candidate. 'I do not propose to support any po litical party hereafter that will not sap- port free ana unlimited coinage of silver. I gee grand changes going on all over the country in favor of the movement. I think it will be brought about. It the effort to make gold money the basis of the countrv is main tained, it must and will cause rnin in our land. Silver mast have all the privileges of gold and I cannot agree to any other plan." CAPTDRED ROBBERS. One of Them Tries to Shoot Himself. But an Efficient and Accommodat ing; Officer Does It for Him.

THE FOURTH DAY And the End of the Big Canal Suit Apparently Farther Off Than Ever. A Proposition to Submit it a Master in Chancery. to The Testimony for the Plaintiffs Alone Will Occupy Not Less Than Twenty Days. The really interminable character of the suit of tbe minority stock holders of the North Side canal companies against the majority stock holders first became apparent to the general public yester day morning. No progress was made but the whole day was taken np with the discussion of a motion by Col. Herring for the appointment of a master in chancery to hear the case. The motion was resist ed by C. F. Ainsworth and Hugh But ler for tbe defendants. Tbey desired the case to go before the court. Judge Baker said that he would hear it dur ing the rest of the week bat no longer. There were he said several criminal cases', there were eighteen men in jail awaiting punishment or liberty and the disposition of even oue snch case was much more important than anybody's civil suit. The trial of the criminal cases would commence next Monday. The attorneys for the 'defense thought it possible that the suit might be con cluded by Saturday night. Col. Her ring said be wished to introduce evi dence which alone would occupy per haps twenty days. The motion went over until two o'clock. At the time set arguments were begnn. The attorneys on the part of the defense nrged the greatest expe dition. If they were wrong they wished to know it as soon as possible and if the plaintiffs were wrong it was equally.-, desirable . tUp.t it should be known. The uncertainty' attending an im pending suit was magnified in the minds of persons who might intend to nvest in land under the canals in volved. The attorneys for the defense then alluded to the objects eought by the plaintiffs, and compared the pres ent condition of the canals with their condition under their former manage ment. The Salt River canal had been they said disastrouslv conducted until it had come under the present manage ment and there had been an increase of population and settlement in . conse quence. Uol. Herring spoke at great length in favor of the motion and bis remarks indicated the extent of the plaintiffs case. Replying to Mr. .Ainsworth's comparison of the former with the present condition of the country, he said, "That is a matter of sentiment and when it comes to sentiment we can out-Herod Herod." His address then turned upon the acquisition by the de fendants of controlling interests in the canals, a forced depreciation of their stock and the conspiracy alleged in the complaint. The court seemed to favor the motion as a time-saving device. In reply to the objection that a mas ter in chancery could not properly sift the evidence, he said it was not neces sary that it should be sifted. Every thing should go in, along with such ex ceptions as might be offered. The evidence would have to be afterward transcribed and reviewed by the court even if it should be heard by the court itself. Court Stenographer Holmes was sug gested as the master. He was accept able to both sides, that is, he was as ac ceptable to the defense as any other person. The matter went over until 9 o'clock this morning. The only other business transacted in court was the reception of a partial report by the grand jury returning in dictments for burglary against John Burris, Robert Williams, Dan Ryan, Henry Johnson, Benjamin Earl and Thos. McDonald. The last two are the men who were arrested last fall suspected of the assas sination of Frank Smith. They suc ceeded in quickly showing that they were not the murderers but among their effects were found many articles identified by persons whose houses had been burglarized a short time before.

Frank B, Austin is at work on the proposition of the county joining the-Santa Fe, Preecott and Phoenix railroad in building a bridge across the river at this point.

COCONINO COUNTY. Flagstaff and the Fourth of July The Reform School. Flagstaff Correspondence. Ths stock yards are a recent improve ment and an important one. Most of the wool usually sent out of this market was clipped at Walnut sta tion and loaded there. Mrs. W. G. Stewart returned from Iowa, where the remains of her hus band were laid away. It ia understood that a battery will be imported from Ohio for the Flagstaff club of '94. Tbey are getting in shape for the season. Secretary Edwards, of the board of control, came here to guard the paroled men to be deputized to do common work on the reform echool. Flagstaff raised such a howl that the proposition was abandoned by the board, and Mr, Edwards' mission is at an end. Over 130 men are now employed on the reform school, public school, court house and Donahue's new hotel. Tbe former is above the first floor, and the latter only begun on foundation. Others well advanced. With the Ari zona lumber mills and qnarry : the forces employed hereabouts will exceed 300 men. Flagstaff will have a Fourth of July celebration. They started on the pro ject three months in advance, and be fore they get through will discount Al buquerque raising the "sinews of war." As a celebrator of Independence day, Flagstaff beats any town weBt of Kansas City down to Los Angeles. She will have 'em, no matter whether they locate the shops and round-house with in her confines or not, or if wool does sell below six cents. Everything else takes a back seat for the time being, ex cept the Dnrango, Flagstaff & San Diego railroad. That must go on at all hazards. If you want to go to the play in style tonight order the new private hack at the Golden Eagle stable. Telephone 5. LEFT IN DOUBT. Long Struggle Unsatis factorily Settled. Was Dupont Elected From Delaware? Question for the United States Senate to Answer. The 211th Ballot Gave Him One Vote Less Than a Majority on Joint Ballot. By tha Assosiated Press. Dovbr, DjI., May 9. The general assembly of Delaware adjourned sine die this afternoon without having se lected a successor to Senator Higgins although the Republicans claim that Col. Henry A. Dupont is legally elected. The matter will probably be taken to the United States senate for a decision.' The 211th ballot since the deadlock began four months ago was taken todav and resulted Dupont, Republican 15; 3'. Edward Addicks, Republican 4; Ed ward R. Idgley, Democrat 9; Tunnel, Democrat 1 ; Mussary, Democrat 1. : Necessary for a choice, 16. j As son as Governor Watson who was the speaker of the senate before bie elevation to -the gubernatorial chair, npon the death of Governor Marvin announced the sine die adjournment, Speaker of the house, McMullin, Repub lican, declared Henry Dupont elected United States senator for Delaware. The legislature is composed of twenty- one representatives and nine senators, sixteen being a majority on joint bal lot. The Republicans claim that when Watson by virtue of his position as speaker of the senate succeeded to the governorship upon tbe death of Gov ernor Marvin one month ago the num ber of senators was reduced to eight and therefore . there were only, twenty nine on joint : ballot and that fifteen votes constituted a majority. On the other hand the Democrats and Governor : Watson ' claim that the law distinctly declares "the speaker of the senate ehali become governor." Theiefore if Mr. .Watson, withdraws from the senate he .ceases to b& speaker of the senate and consequently ceases to be governor, r Tne question will occupy a large amount of publie attention for month? to come. A PLUM MATURES. The Board of Control Secre taryship Filled. A City Election Which ATtectea an. Appointive Territorial Office. An official plum which bas looked as if it was ripe for several weeks fell yes terday to the delight of one gentleman and the consternation of several others who have been chiefly engaged during the last two months in watching its growth, development and maturity. It was the sjcietarvbhip of thj board of control and Maj. Ed Schwartz is the fortunate possessor. The appointment was made yesterday morning by the governor on his return from Tucsoa. It had been generally understood that Maj. Schartz could have the office if he wanted it, and whether or not he wanted it would depend upon the inane of the late city election, in which he was a candidate for recorder. About 5 :45 o'clock, Pacific time, last Tuesday evening it looked as if the major would want it. At 6:15 it was mortally cen tal n that the office would be desirable and by the same majority which landed T. A. Jobs into the office of city re corder, Maj. Ed Schwartz was as sorely elected secretary of the board of con trol. Thns two mighty good and effi cient fellows were elevated to office at one fell stroke. There is certainly no more - capable city recorder than Jobs and in all the territory perhaps no man could be found so well fitted for the arduous duties to which Maj. Schwartz has been called, as that gentleman himself. His clerical training has been thorough and daring the six years he has occu pied his late position he bas - acted in the capacity of municipal accountant. In fact until a year ago he kept .all accounts and his records contained a complete history of business in every department of. the city. By the segre gation of the offices of assessor and tax collector- and marshal hie duties wwe afterwards lightened. The office of secretary of the board of control pays a salary of $900. Besides thiB tbe major occupies the position of Adjutant-General N. G. A. with a salary of $ 500. Domestic eewing machines with all the latest improvements at the Phoenix Stationery & News company at greatry reduced, prices.
