"There is no patent on this dis covery," said Mr. Smith today. "It is tree to all. I regard it of the utmost value in the working out of the prob lem of domestic economy. The same borax can be used over and over again and think of the amount of unneces sary domes tic W8ste that will be avoided by preserving fruit this way.

Settlers in the Lately Infested Region Breathe Free. Reasons Why No ReDort Has Been Made and No Claim Put In for the Reward. The Apache Kid ia dead. Sufficient legal proof of his death has not been produced to enable his slayer to claim the $5,000 reward placed upon the rene gade's head, but settlers in the Sierra Anchas, in the Superstition mountains, along the upper San Pedro and where- ever else the Kid used to roam, are bo firm in the belief that he has been killed that an atmosphere of relief pre vails within that lately infested region. The story of the killing was brought to the city last night by J. J. Frazier, the well known cattleman and ranch man, and P. Y. Bicknell, who had just returned from a tour through the Sierra Anchas, said it was prevalent there ar'.J the settlers believed the Kid was dead. Mr. Frazier has lately returned from the upper San Pedro at a point not far from the reservation. . The killing oc carred during his stay there and was as follows : A ranchman, with whom Mr. Frazier bad business had a lot of horses on the range. He was anxious to gather them up, but the restless con dition of the Indians at that time ren dered him timid. Two cowboys told him thev would not mind a brush with the renegades and they were accord ingly hired to hunt the horses. On the morning of their first day out they came upon a spring whose borders were beaten down by Indian feet. A trail leading down from an adjacent mountain was discovered. It had been trodden eo frequently that the cowbovs believed the Indian had been in the neighborhood several days, and so lately that there web suspicion that they were elill lurking on the mountain side. Before proceeding farther with the search for the horses the cowboys de cided to guard the spring for the rest of the day. They concealed themselves at different points, a considerable distance from the spring but within easy range of the trail. The day passed slowly and along - toward f night-fall their watch was rewarded by the eight of a party of five Indians appioachingv the Bpring. On the first appearance ol the In dians over an elevation in the trail one of the cowboys fired and an Indian fell. Before the others cou'd retreat across the raise in the ground the cowboy fired again and a second Indian fell, but arose almost immediately and joined the others who quickly assisted him out of sight. The cowboys emerged from cover and going up to the fallen Indian dis covered the dead body of a squaw shot through the heart. The trail of the wounded Indian was marked by blood. from a discharge eo copious that the cowboys believed that he had received a mortal wound. The trail was fol lowed about five miles until night came on and the followers were brought into a locality which afforded so great facilities for ambush that they desisted with the purpose of prosecuting it the next morning. They did so but before they had pro ceeded very far, the bloody trail had ceased. There were horse's tracks snd it became evident that the wounded In dian had been carried off on horse back. The cowbovs went along the trail a couple of miles and then aban doned it. There was little hope in the first place of overtaking the Indians and then the pursuit on account of the threatened danger of a general out break on the reservation was extremely hazardous. The cowboys entertained a suspicion only a faint one, that the wounded In dian was the Kid. It was based en tiiely on the one circumstance that the dead squaw had been a member of the partv. The Kid too was supposed to be in the neighborhood encouraging the disturbance than going on on the reser vation and the military had been noti fied of his presence. The wounded In dian too in a general way filled the description of the renegade, but they had never seen him before ana the vic tim of the cowboy's Winchester at this time had been seen only from so great a distance that no reliance could be placed upon the supposed resemblance be tween him and the Kid. The cowboys wisely determined to sav nothice about the affair. The In dians when fired upon were making no hostile demonstration, and white men have learned by bitter experience that while one white man may kill another in Arizona and poasiblv escape punish nient, woe is the lot of a white man who kills an Indian without a flawless excuse. This is why this incident of the present Indian uneasiness was not incorporated into recent official reports to the headquarters of the department of the Colorado. Now for the theory that the dead In dian, for that wounded Indian is un doubtedly dead, was the Apache terror. Within a day or two after the snoot ing four bncks who had left the reserva tion sometime before or at the beginning of the trouble and were believed by the authorities to have ioined the Kid, re turned and have since been quiescent while many of their brethren are still out. There were just four Indians with the dead squaw and the wounded In dian. Again Indians, subjected to iU- treatment by the whites lose no time in reporting the circumstance at the post. The Indians fired upon by the cowboys belonged at San Carlos, yet no infor mation has ' reached there from an In dian source of the killing of the equaw. These are the two main points in sup port of the supposition that the Kid is dead. Taking these in connection with the official report, that he had lately been tn that locality, and that a squaw was in the party, a strong circumstan tial chain ot evidence is presented in proof of the death of the scourge of southeastern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico and the northern districts of Sonora and Chihuahua. THE INCOME TAX. Something About Other Simi lar Laws And How Wlil Their Results. Be Affected by the Late Supreme Court Decision. Mr. R. Stuart returned yesterday from Santa Fe, where he has been en gazed since February 1, in the income tax division of the internal revenue de partment of the district of Arizona and New. Mexico. The late decision of the supreme court gave Mr. Stuart along with several hundred other gentlemen, occasion to look for other employment. Mr. Stuart seeing there was no in come tax to be collected, has been col lecting some information on the subject of income tax laws and arrives at the conclusion thai if the late law was not valid none of its predecessors were and that the government is in debt for evrrv dollar it has collected under such laws. The :' first income tax law was approved July 1, 1862, fixing tax of 3 percent on all incomes of from $600 to $10,000 and a tax of 5 per cent on all incomes of more than $10,000. On March 3, 1865, the law was amended, taxing all incomes of $600 to $5,000. 10 per cent. The law was further amended on March 7, 1867 taxing all incomes of more than $1,000, Hnerwnt. A cam on . I ill v 14. 1H7U. nit. amonilA fi-rinf? O. t.ftX of 2 tier cent on all incomes over $2,000. It ex uired by limitation on December 31 1871. Incidentally the department internal revenue was created on July 1 1862, and Geo. S. Boutwell of Massa chusetts, became the first commis sioner. Under the operation ol the law inaugurated in 1892 and between its in auguration and its expiration there were collected taxes amounting to nearly $800,000,000. Under the late income tax law about $80,000 has been collected. The interesting position taken by Mr. Stuart, and supported by some legal opinion IB that the late decision of the . i , . 1 . Z . 1 supreme court, not omv numues me late law and affects not the old law, be cause a dead law cannot be affected but makes every man who paid a dollar of income tax under that law a sue cessful claimant against the govern ment for the return of a tax illegally wrested from him. Judge Street was next Been by a Re publican reporter concerning this mat ter. He held that in the first place the late decision of the supreme court did not affect the old law, though it did at tack and destroy that principle of taxa tion. Even those who had paid tax under the late law could not claim its retnrn unless payment had been made und-r protest. But those who had paid under the old law though they may have made a legal murmur agains payment, had been afforded no relief by tbe late decision. In short only so much of the income tax now held by the government could be refunded has had been paid oader protest and the late income tax law. Then also there is something else in the way of claimants for the reimburse ment of taxes under the old law, of so great importance that it should have been mentioned first. That law like the late one was attacked on account of its illegal unconstitutionality. A su preme court pronounced it valid and it remained undieturbed and in force un til its peaceful death in 1871. It was therefore aa binding as a law could be mnde. That decision too by the way was made a basis for the dissenting opinions offered in the consideration of tbe validity of the late law.

Case by the Way In Which a Doomed Man's Prosecutor Be comes His Advocate, By the Associated Press. Sacramento, May 24. Rico Morasco will be hanged on Jane 20 if Gov. Budd does not interfere. G. A. Lamont at the time MoraBCO was convicted was district attorney of Solano county and prosecuted him. Today he came, no from his home in Suisnn and asked Gov. Budd to commute the sentenca and send Morasco to the penitentiary for life. He claims that the convicted man was poorly defended. He is aa ignorant and weak minded man, ono who is hardly accountable for bis acta. "I am opposed to this whole commu tation business," said the governor. One governor will commute a tnaa and the next man who is elected chief magistrate pardons him. The whole pardon business is wrong. If I inter fere in this case I will reprieve him for two years and .have tbe legislature change the law so that a man com muted in such instances cannot after wards be pardoned." AN IDEAL SUMMER PLACE. A Traveler Discovers It In the . . Sierra Anchas. . Mr. P. Y.
