If the slayers of the Indians are promptly ar rested and the Bannocks know they will be impartially tried and severely punished if found guilty, the uprising will at once be at an end."

Holders of Mining Claims Re ceive a Nudge. ; They Recognize at Last That Prospect Is Not a Remarka ble Property. General Churchill has recently re turned from a week's tour through the mining regions this side of Prescott. Concerning one sign of a general and lasting improvement in mining matters he said : ''About eighty miles south of Prescott there is a vast and rich mining region covered by hundreds of claims whose locations date back from one to thirty years. "There has been almost no develop ment, the locators having labored un- der a misapprehension that the claims could be sold as mines. This had formerly been done but latterly pur chasers have been unwilling to risk in vestment upon Buch surface indications In many instances the locators were unable to go on with the development and so during all these years, they have been performing annually the $100 worth of work required by law. No attempt was made to procure the co operation of capitalists and this rich district haB therefore been uermitted to lie practically idle. Now miners are taking a different view of the case and good prospects are being developed so that their real worth may be set before prospective purchasers." General Churchill says that rains have been abundant throughout that region, particularly along the divide be tween the Hassayampa and Lynch creek and stockmen, as well as miners, are greatly encouraged. AN ASSAULT ON A SNAKE, An Imaginary Reptile Is Cut In Twain. There was exuitement and misappre hension at the residence of Malcolm McNair on Tuesday night. The family was sleeping on cots in the rear of the houee. About midnight Mr. McNair was awakened by blood chilling screams. Mrs. McNair had stepped on the tail of a enake which elevated its head in indignant protest. Mr. McNair hurried to the scene of disturbance and there was the snake plainly visible in the uncertain light of a young and crescent moon. "You go and get the ax," said Mr. McNair to his wife, "and I'll keep he goes." Mrs. McNair brought the ax and handed it to the executioner. He took careful aim, at the same time taking care to keep out of reach of the enake's fange. The range was too long and the ax missed the enake about, so far as Mr. McNair afterward indicated, the discrepancy on his finger. Again he raised the ax and brought it down on the enake amidships. Then a more careful examination was made and the Enake turned out to be a email branch of a tree. WANT TO PLAY BALL. A Game to Be Arranged Between Flagstaff and Tucson. From the Tucson Star. The local ball club has received a let ter from Flagstaff, offering to play a game of ball if a $500 stake be put up, the game to be played in t lagstaff. The Tucson club will meet at 7 :30 this even ing at Drachmae's. It is thought that the club here will accept the terms but demand that the game be played either here or both clubs go hall way and play it in Phoenix, If the game comes off, as it in all probability will, it will be well worth attending, as both clubs are buse ball players of no mean ability. and the lovers of the National game may look for a treat. THERE'S A BOOM SURE. The Mines of the North Are All Right. General Churchill Visits Many of Them and Reports Activ ity Everywhere. From the Prescott Courier. Gen. Clark Churchill, of Phoenix, who resided in this section for years, and is familiar with our mining dis tricts as thev appeared then, has just returned from a three days' trip, dur ing which he visited the head of Lynx creek, the Hassayampa, Slate creek and Maple gulch, all in the mineral belt immediately south of Prescott, atd expresses himself agreeable sur prised at the great activity in mining matters he found generally prevalent, In every district mining in all its stages could be seen aide by side, the placer miners working in the gulches with pans, rocker a and sluices:, wiiile on the surrounding mountains were quartz claims ranging from the freshly located and partially developed to those piled with milling and shipping ore, new claims were being staked off and prospecting for still undiscovered claims gave employment to quite a number of men. - The general Btated that if the mine owners did not stand in their own light by asking fabulous prices for their par tially developed proBpects, good times were sure to prevail to considerable ex tent in Prescott and vicinity in the near future. He is interested in Has sayampa district himeelf and his mining motto is that when any person wishes to work a mine that person should be permitted to do so, if possible. Speaking of a water supply for Pres cott, he said that such a supply could be run in by gravitation from Banning creek. This water theory has been ad vanced by others and there is little doubt but what Banning creek would supply the town wholly for six months in the year, and in connection with the GooBeFlat pumping plant, would sup ply it for the remaining six, but the water would have to run through a covered piping, as if exposed, the sum mer sun would lick half of it up in that distance. THE ARIZONA DEMOCRAT The Name of the New Even ing Newspaper. Many Prominent Democrats Anx ious to Help Establish the En terprise S20.000 of Stock. The proposition to establish a new Democratic evening newspaper met with great favor yesterday among the Democrats, and many who were not at the first meeting expressed themselves aB anxious to help the project. One prominent Phoenix Democrat sub scribed $3,000 to the stock and several Democratic ranchmen who were in the city yesterday asked that their names be enrolled among the stock holders for various sums. Another meeting was held last night and it was determined to make the subscription to the stock a popular one and the books will be opened for the sale of $10 worth of stock ud. This will give the many who desire to be identified with the enterprise an op portunity. Already $20,000 worth of the stock has been taken which insures the suc cess of the enterprise. The capital stock has been placed at $50,000 and it will be distributed all over the terri tory. The new paper therefore starts out under the most flattering auspices, and if it is a failure it will not be for the lack of funds. The name of the paper is to be The Arizona Democrat. cases on this fellow and eee where SUPREME COURT. Sortillon Is Granted a New Lease of Life. He Wili Not Be Hanged for the Present. Decision Reversed intheJuana Walker Case. A Writ of Certiorari for the Removal of Receiver McMillan of the Peoria Canal Denied. Jose Maria Sortillon, who is now confined in the'eounty jail under sen tence of death, has been granted a new lease of life ; in other words he will not be hanged, for yesterday "Judge Kibbey was notified by telegraph from his partner, M. H. Williams, that the bu- prtfwe court at rrescoit naa reversed the decision of Judge Baker in the Sortillon case and that a new trial had been granted the accused. When Jndge Kibbey received the news he hastened to the jail and told the wel come tidings to Sortillon. The pris oner was visibly affected, for over a year he had stood in the shadow of the gallows. In the month of November, 1892, un the reservation near Yuma the 1 -day-old child of and Indian woman named Guerre was buried alive. SortiJon was arrested for the crime. Some months later a true bill was returned against the prisoner by the United States grand jury sittiug in this city. When his case came up for trial the jury failed to agree and the prisoner was remanded back to jail until the May term of court of the following year, when the case was again brought up for trial. At the second trial he was found guilty of murder aa charged in the indictment and Judge Baker sentenced him to be hanged on July 27. Ab toul w-as take.. 10 the supreme court by Judge Kibbey -on the grounds tnat the court bad erred in in structing the jury with regards to the testimony of A."Frank, the mayor of Yuma and a brother-in-iaw of the de fendant. The instructions on that point were in cautioning the jury to weigh carefully the testimony of that witness. , Judge Kibbey scored another point in the case of Juana Walker, the In dian girl, who contested the will of John Walker, the millionaire, claiming to be his daughter. The decision re verses that of the lower court and the estate reverts to a brother of John Walker. A move was made too. in the Peoria canal litigation. A telegram was re ceived here by Attorney Armstrong re-" presenting Receiver McMillan, stating tbat an application for a writ of a certiorari bringing up the approval of the receiver's bond and the refusal of. District Clerk Walker to declare the office vacant, for review. The object of this writ was to take a shorter cut for the receiver's removal. Application by C. F. Ainsworth, was made in the Crowley interest, a week ago to Judge Hawkins for an order directing the writ to issue but he declined, referring the matter to the whole court. The telegram announcing the denial of the writ was very brief and con tained no mention of the grounds upon which it was based. It is supposed here that the court believed that the former writ issued at the instance of the Gila Bend people on the order of Judge Bouse involved in another form the matter presented in the writ which has been denied. The judgment of Judge Baker was also reversed in the suit appealed from his court which was against the bonds men of ex-Sheriff Gray and in favor of Daniel Noonan, in the sum of $16,000. The case was sent back for a new trial. SHOT HIMSELF. A Saloon Man of Los Angeles Ends His Existence. It Is Said He Was Hopelessly In Love With a Woman and Grew Despondent. By the Associated Press.
