Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 18. Opening day
at the Cotton States and International
exposition dawned auspiciously bright
and clear, affording to thousands of
northern visitors a sample of typical
southern September weather. The
doora of buildings which had been
closed for several days were all thrown
open. Over nine-tenths of the exhibits
were complete.
The city is a mass of bunting and wav
ing decorations, flying flags, bands of
music and a general atmosphere of gaity
and rejoicing. At high noon every steam
whistle in the city broke forth with
noisy chorus, crowds cheered long and
loud and the festivities of the opening
day were fairly begun. At 1 o'clock the
procession, under command of Col. W.
L. Kellogg, United States army, as mar
shal, began moving. In line were the
Fifth regiment, United States army,
Fifth regiment, Georgia Volunteers, and
the various visiting state troops of

rested yesterday afternoon on a charge
of theft committed in the morning.
He entered the residence of Mies
Buelah Frarry, on Grand avenue, while
she was away, and secured a valuable
shawl, purse and a clock. Miss Frarry
met the man with the bundle on the
street just after he had left the house.
She did not see him leave the premises,
but suspecting from his actions that
something was wrong, hastened to her
house and. taking a hasty inventory,
misled the articles described.
She notified the sheriff's officers at
once, and gave a good description of the
man she had met. Deputy Sheriff Gib

hours Biicceeded in locating the thief,
as well as the stolen'goods.
An Unkuown Man Stabbed by O. F
McGowan Back of a Restaurant.
A stabbing affray occurred yesterday
evening in the rear of the Model res
taurant on First avenue, between O. F.
McGowan and a man, name unknown.
The unknown man, who was under
the influence of liquor, went through a
small alleyway to the yard in the rear
of the restauarant. McGowan, who
also under the influence, likewise went
to the rear. The former made some
drunken, and insulting remark to Mc
Gowan, who retaliated in a like spirit.
The fighting ardor of both was
aroused and they grabbed at each
others throat. During the scuffle Mc
Gowan drew a pocket knife and plunged
it several times into the other's side re
marking, "How do you like the feel of
this?" The other broke away and ran
followed by McGowan, who however,
gave up the chase evidently satisfied
that he had done enough mischief.
He was found shortly afterward by Jus
tice Johnstone, who requested Deputv
United States Marshal Slankard to
place him under arrest and confine him
in jail.
The last seen of the unknown man he
was walking rapidly north on Center
street but all efforts by the officers to
locate him proved futile. It is not

Escapee?, from Jail.
Officer Charles Lewis of Mesa yester
day called up Sheriff Orme by telephone
and stated that he had in custody a
Mexican named Juan Bracamonte, and
desired to know if he was wanted for
any crime. i
The sheriff referred to the prison reg
ister and ascertained that Bracamonte
had escaped from that institution in
1893. He immediately telephoned
back to Lewis to bring the prisoner to
Phoenix. Lewis brought his man down
yesterday afternoon.
Bracamonte was arrested for grand
larcenv in July ol 'ad, and at his pre
liminary examination was bound over
to the grand jury. His bonds were
placed at $300, which he failed to pro
duce, and was remanded to jail until

that body and his case set for trial.
Before his esse was called he managed
to escape from the county mil and

Murphy and his deputies, nothing was
heard of him until yesterday, when he
was arrested at Mesa. The indictment
against him still holds good, and he will
be tried at the next term of court.

The First Game Between Phoe
nix and Fort Thomas.
The Latter Club Wins by a Score of
18 to 9 Two More Games
Yet to Be Played.
A good sized crowd attended the park
yesterday afternoon to witness the ball
game between the Phoenix club and the
Fort Thomas bojs. A good deal of in
terest was taken in the game for the
reason that the Fort Thomas club ia
now the declared champion of Arizona, '
having won two out of three games
from the Tucson club, which heretofore
held the championship. Some of the
regular players of the Phoenix nine
were absent and some trouble was an
ticipated in arranging positions.
The game was called at 3 o'clock with
the Fort Thomas club at the bat. The
visiting club is composed of seasoned
players and from the commencement of
the game it was plainly seen that the
Phoenix bovs were wanting in practice
although several good runs were made
by the home team.
At the end of the game the score
stood 18 to 9 in favor of Fort Thomas.
An apology will have to be made for not
giving the innings, for a special man
was sent out to report the game but be
ing an enthusiast, was enveigled into
joining the ranks of the Phoenix club
with the result that he forgot what he
was sent for and no report was handed
in to this office.
The Phoenix nine was composed of
the following: Messrs. Pinney, Baum,
Stewart, Farish, Lovell, Groff, White
head, Lambert, Robinson and Segalia.
The Fort Thomes boys are : Messrs.
M. Tomlin, pitcher; W. F. Jordan,
catcher; A. C. Alexander, car tain an'i
first base ; F. Morey, second base ; C. E.
Booth, third base ; P. Mav. shortstop ;
E. J. Nicole, left field ; H." F. Blevans,
center field; J. Slign,an, right field;
William Davidson, umpire, and J. L.
Alexander, manager. ,
It has been reported that the Fort
Thomas club are all soldiers, but such is
not the case, for the club is composed
of merchants,! clerks.J school teachers,
farmers and operators.
The club is making a good record, and
since leaving home has played ten
games and lost but one. The two games
that yet remain to be played will draw
good crowds, for the defeat of the Phoe
nix club yesterday has aroused base
ball enthusiasts and they will attend
the game in force today, to cheer on the
home team.
The Phoenix nine are not by any
means bad players, and although they
have had but littie time to practice for
the game, they do not feel discourged.
but will make a strong attempt to win
the two remaining games.
