The Remains Followed to the Crave by His Late Journalistic Associates. The funeral of H. O. Rosefield oc curred yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock from the family residence, corner of First avenue and Jefferson street. The newspaper fraternity and many others had congregated to pay the last sad respects to one who had peacefully and silently crossed that great un unknown river which is man's last journey. No services were held and as soon as all had taken the last look at a familiar face, as peaceful and calm as a sleeping babe, the coffin lid was screwed down and the remains car ried to the hearse. The pall bearers were Messrs. Wolflev, McClintock McElwain, Dr. Hyde, T. A. Jobs and J. M. Burnett. The remains were followed to the cemetery by many friends ot the de ceased and a large 'bus containing em ployes of the various newspapers. Arrived at the cemetery the coffin was laid over the grave and T. A. Jobs made a few well chosen remarks eulo gistic of the deceased. He spoke of the Kindliness of the departed and how in his endeavors to serve his employers he neglected himself. Although for over a month past he was a very sick man his innate courage kept him up until within the last two days of his life when through sheer exhaustion he was forced to take to bed, and even then with the shadow of approaching disso lution hanging over him his courage never forsook him. Within a half hour of his death the dving man was conscious and to the anxious wife and frifnds around his bedside he smiled faintly to give them courage, but lust as the town clock was striking the midnight hour bis head fell back and closing bis eyes his soul had passed away. . Just as the sun was about to bide in the western horizon the simple services at the grave were concluded and the first shovelful of dirt fell on the lid of the box and thus ended the ceremony and one more man was delivered back to the element from which ho first gained existence. H. O. Rosefield, at the time of his death was 34 years of age. He came to Phoenix nearly a yearly ago from Port land, Ore., and during his residence in this city had been connected with the Gazette as business manager. , Up to within three years ago he was a strong, robust man and relyitg on his constitu tion he was neglectful of his health. being a member of the Portland fire de partment he was exposed on numerous occasions which at last propagated the seeds of the disease from which he died. During the early months of Ms resi dence in Pbcenix he appeared to be gaining iu health but being of an ener getic temperment he would persist in confining himself too closely to busi ness. Bv his untimely demise he leaves a widow, an estimable woman, and a young babe who will be deprived of loving husband and father. DISCOURAGING GLEANERS. Indians Try to Save Mr. Hammills' Wasting Crop, H. A. Hammills, of Glendale, is hav ing his annual troule with gleaners in his vicinity. Day before yesterday he and his brother, Constable Hammills, caught three Indians, five squaws and two pappooses winnowing grain which they reasonably concluded was going to waste in his field. The grain they had already gathered was taken from them and they were brought to the city and placed in nail about midnight. One very old and helpless equaw was per mitted to remain outside the jail. The Indians were brought before Justice Johnstone yesterday morning charged with stealing, an offense of which there is no doubt they were technically guilty. It was shown, though, that the more industrious In dians had been accustomed from the earliest times to glean in the fields of tbe whites. It is possible for an In dian, or a white man1 either: to earn about 25 cents in the course ot a long summer day in gathering the stiay heads of grain. But a white man wouldn't do it. The Indians were found guilty and sentenced to five days each in the county jail. The two squaws who had pappooses were turned loose. The law, though, was latisfied, at some slight expense to tbe taxpayer, It cost sav $18 or $20 to vrrest and bring the Indians to Phoenix. That sum is, of course, not lost to all the taxpayers. A considerable part of it in the shape of leeo will revert to Con stable Hammills. who is a taxpayer, Then there are other court coBts and the expense of keeping six prisoners five days. About a year ago the same complain ant caused the arrest of two Mexicans for the same kind of an offense, only they were gathering the grain along the roadside where Mr. Hammills had sown it and had made a pretense of reaping it.

Burnett, who has lately become the editor of the Arizona "Gazette."

At C :30 o'clock the gueste assembled at the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. Sparks, and Mr. Defty performed the honors of the evening. Of course Mr. Burnett was surprised The dinnr was a revelation to a news paper njaa, and he couldn't help but be surprised. During the even ing some choice instrumental and vocal selections were rendered by Mrs. lone Allen and Mr. W. E. Defty to the intense delight of the company. The "Gazette and its new editor were ap propriately toasted and a long career of usefulness and prosperity was pre dicted for both of them. Those present' were: Dr. and Mrs. Ira B. Hamblin, Dr. and Mrs. G. H. Keefer, Mr. an 1 Mrs. D. W. Sparks, Mr. and Mrs. T. J. vVolfiey, Miss Julia Sapp, Mrs. lone Allen, Mr. W. E. Defty and Mr. Eugene Hackett. THEY MAY SUE. Application of Daugh- erty-Crowley People To Bring Action Against Receiver McMillan Heard in District Court Yester day and Granted. Another Complication In South Side Water Affairs Sprung on the Court. The application of the Daugherty- Crowley interests in the Peoria Canal company to bring suit for damages against Receiver McMillan, was granted yesterday by Judge Baker. The appli cation was made two weeks before and tbe court indicated at that time that the applicants had a right to bring the suit, but he declined then to pass upon the matter. Although the petition in the suit has not yet been presented it is given out that damages to the amount of $200,000 will be alleged. This amount is co-in cident with the amount of the re ceiver's bond upon which the suit will be brought. It will be alleged that the receiver has disregarded the orders of the court in the managment of the company's affairs and also that he abandoned the plans and specifications of the engineers for the construction of the dam. The constructing engineer was H. Clay Kellogg, the consulting engineer Col. Alberger of San Fran cisco. It will be claimed that bv reason of the abandonment of the plans Col. Alberger withdrew and that as a further result the dam went out in a freshet. - - . . . It is said on the other band that the receiver's responsibility for the dis asters which have overtaken the com pany would not have been raised but for a late petition bv him for an order of resale and which was granted. The property bad previously been twice, sold, but neither sale had been con summated. The purchasers at the first sale were the Peoria, III.', stockholders. Upon their failure to raise the required money after several extensions of tbe time in which it should be paid a long period of litigation again set in and was only interrupted by another order of sale. The Crowley and Daugherty interests now became the purchasers. Though the consummation of the sale was not effected'witbin the specified time and has not in fact been ' effected yet, the purchasers have bad assurance of ob taining the needed funds from Eoglish capitalists. It was staked in prospect of the damage suit that many of the receiver's bondsmen, though indemnified by a Peoria, 111., bank, bad withdrawn. It is said that the bond haB since been re filled and iB ready to be submitted for approval. Another water case attracted the at tention ol the court. Residents in the vicinity of Mesa offered a petition for' permission to extend the LewiB branch of the Me3a canal for a distance of four or five miles parallel with the Con solidated canal. Opposition was made by Dr. Chandler and the matter was taken under advisement. NEARLY TO TUCSON. Survey of the North & South Road. It Has Reached Red Rock Thirty Miles From the Old Pueblo. From the Tucson Star. The surveying party of the North and South railroad, which left Florence, short time ago, ia now at Red Rock, on the Southern Pacific, about thirty miles west of Tucson. It is thought that the route selected will be parallel with the Southern Pacific lroin Red Rock east to Tucson, on account of the topography of the country. In order to get through the mountains with any ordinary cost the road must either come in that war or run to the east of Tuc3on and then build westward, which is a much long er distance. The party may be ex pected to arrive here at no distant day. Reward for a Murderer. Sacramento, July 12 Gov. Budd this afternoon offered $500 reward for the apprehension of K. E.
