Annual Meeting Held in Phoenix
the Territorial Board.
The territorial board of equalization
met yesterday morning in the rooms
of the territorial auditor, all members
being present. '
The first matter presented was an
assessment of the Pullman Palace Car
company. The company paid no tax
in Arizona last year, owing to the dif
ficulty of levying upon it an assess
ment, but was stated to be willing to
pay both for 1895 and 1896 territorial
taxes upon eight and 28-100 cars, the
proportion of its rolling stock op
erated in Arizona over the Southern
Pacific, Atlantic & Pacific, Maricopa &
Phoenix and Santa Fe, Prescott &
Phoenix lines. The regular Pullmans
were listed at $4,000 and the tourist
sleepers at $1,200. The proposition
was accepted by the board and Clerk
A. M. Franklin was instructed to noti
fy the counties of the assessment in the
proportion of the mileage to which
each is entitled.
The assessment of the Atlantic &
Pacific was quickly disposed of, the
road being represented before the
board by E. E. Ellinwood. The rate
per mile was fixed at $5,000, the figure
at which it has stood since 1888. The
reason for the low assessment is in
some wise connected with the right of
way of the company, which is upon
ground solely its property and upon
which it pays taxes in the several
counties through which the road pass
es. The assessment of the New Mexico
& Arizona road, that runs from Benson
to Nogales, was considered especially
in reference to an error in the assess
ment last year. A penalty of $1,200
had been imposed for the non-listing
of the road with the board. This pen
alty, on proper showing, had been re
scinded, but the supervisors of the
counties had not been properly noti
zed and there would appear to be a
credit due the road. This matter and
the assessment of the Bisbee road were
however, little more than touched up-
. on and were held over for considera
LANDED ON CUBA.
The Last Bermuda Expedition Was a
"NEW YORK, June 2. A letter has
been received by Thomas Estrada
Palma, of the Cuban delegates in this
city, from President Betancourt, of the
Cuban republic, in which it is said
that thirty-four men and a large quan
tity of ammunition sent by the last
Bermuda expedition had been safely
landed on the island and had joined
an insurgent detachment sent to the
palace in anticipation of landing. A
report from Philadelphia, to which
port the Bermuda returned, stated the
One of Our Suits of
men had been captured by Spaniards
and the vessel had to fly to escape cap
ture. This statement is contradicted
by the advices received by Mr. Palma.
PORTLAND, Ore., June 2 Returns
continue to come in slowly. The race
for congressmen in both the First and
Second districts is getting very close
between Republicans and Populists,
and it will take a complete vothe te de
cide. The Republican central com
mittee claims it is a joint ballot in the
legislature insuring the election of a
United States senator.
Ex-Governor Pennoyer's plurality in
this city for mayor, according to the
vote counted, will be over 2,000.
DUNHAM STILL AT LARGE.
SAN JOSE, Cal.. June 2 The day
has passed and there is no trace of
Murderer Dunham. The sheriffs re
turned to San Jose with their posse
this evening thoroughly tired out and
reluctantly confessed that they had no
trace of the man and that practically
they were at sea as towhat would next
be done. (While they have abandoned
the search there is no lack of men on

THE SCHOOL TEACHERS.

last night and elected the old teachers

was made principal of the East End
school and Professor Cole of the West
End school. Other assignments will
be made in the future.

WASHINGTON, June 2. Indications
are that the general deficiency appro
priation bill will not receive the presi
dent's signature owing principally to
objections to items appropriating a
million and a half dollars for the pay
ment of French spoliation claims and
the Bowman act claims. It is proba
ble the bill will be permitted to become
a law without his signature.

The new mayor was the recipient last
night of many and most sincere con
gratulations and the general opinion
was that Phoenix in the coming year
would have prosperity commingled
with honest and progressive govern

was secured by the jubilant friends of
the mayor-elect. Headed by "Homer,"
the fire department goat, which had
been spoken disrespectfully of upon
i Democratic rostrums, the line of march
was to the corner of Washington and
First avenue. Here the multitude was
addressed from the balcony of the
Monihon building by the city's most
honored citizen who promised all that
could be by him done for the advance
ment of the city and in the interest of
good and progressive government.
Other speakers were Judge J. H. Kib

knocked at the doors of congress and
asked for admission to the sisterhood

On the 28th of this month, however,
the territory had a most miraculous
escape from an honor which might
have turned her head and rendered her
even more importunate in her efforts
to gain for herself what is justly hers
and for which she has so long and
earnestly worked for. The prohibi

nominees for presidential candidates
the names of Joshua Levering of Mary

WASHINGTON, June 2. The. ap
proaching end of the session was Im
pressed upon the nouse by several sug
gestions today. A rule from the com
mittee on rules for meetings of tha
house at 11 o'clock, an hour earlier
than usual during the remainder of the
session was adopted. Mr. Dingley of
Maine called attention to the fact that
several appropriation bills were yet In
conference. He said he noticed that
many members were leaving the city
and begged the other members to lie
main and keep a quorum. His appeal
was reinforced by Chairman Cannon ot
the appropriation committee, who said:
"In my judgment there is no probabil
ity that this session will end before
Wednesday of next week and probably
not before Friday or Saturday. If we
do not keep a quorum we will not get
away for a month."
The report of the committee on ris
ers and harbors recommending the
passage of the bill over the president's
veto, was made by Chairman Hooker
and read. The reading was followed
by applause, most of it cn the RepubB
can side of the house. Mr. Hooker
moved the passage of the bill. Me.
Dockery of Missouri made an earnest
effort to have the question debated,
but the speaker decided against him.
The matter went promptly to vote
and was passed 220 to CO. ; :

WASHINGTON, June r In report
ing the militia reorganization bill In
the senate, Senator Hawley said It
would not be -called up till the-next
session. Among the bills introduced
was one by Senator Culloin of Illinois
for a peace monument at Appomattox,
Senator Morrill was recognized for
a speech on the tariff. His earnest
manner and strong vo:ee gave no iadi
cation of his advanced age. Senator
Morrill referred to the emergency tar
iff bill passed by the houe, and said:
"The Democrats have broken away
from the leadership of their president
and while marching to drum and fife
in North Carolina, are in much dread
lest the Populists should get control of
their party; they seem to be in a hurry
to become Populists themselves." The
senator declared the Republican natty
never would make a trade of its prin
ciple on the money question in order
to secure higher tariff duties.
