Chandler returned yester day afternoon from the coast. Electrician Harry White left for Los Angeles Sunday night upon receipt of the intelligence of his wife's illness. The park theater company will give a benefit performanme on Tuesday evening, September 1. One-half of the proceeds will be donated to the Labor Day fund. Manuel iMadrid unwisely thumped a compadre Sunday and yesterday was requested by Justice Johnstone to pay a small fine of $7. Mayor Monition requests that all committees on the Labor Day celebra tion be present at the city hall this evening at 8 p. m., as business of much Importance will come up. Four drunks of various nationalities and in different conditions of drunken ness and sobriety were gathered in Sunday by the city officers. They were assessed from $3 to $5 according to the gravity of the offense. Frank Atkinson, tlhe man who com mitted an assault on Juan Luis, was yesterday discharged by Justice Mor ris, as there was no evidence to con vict outside of tlhe complaining wit- j ness' testimony. A recommendation for the pardon of Oscar Rogers, the train robber under sentence of death, has been received at the governor's office. The paper is signed by Judges Hawkins, Rouse and Beohime and the district attorney of Pinal county. Sheriff Orme yesterday lodged in jail Ramon Ortega, the Mexican who two weeks ago abducted a 16-year-old girl and fled to the mountains about 200 miles north of Phoenix. He will be given a hearing this afternoon by Justice Johnstone, Some uneasiness is felt over the con tinued absence of the posse which' took the trail of the Nogales bank robbers a week ago last Friday. No informa tion concerning the posse has been re ceived since and it is feared that the party were ambushed and killed by the robbers. Ohas. Raye, a Syrian, was tried yes terday by Justice Johnstone for as sault. The Syrian licked a man and wanted to lick twenty-five more, but the strong arm of ithe law saved the other twenty-five from chastisement by placing the scrapper under arrest. He paid a fine of $11 for his little en joyment. A meeting was held at 'the city hall yesterday 'by representatives of the printers', carpenters' and clerks' unions, at which a constitution and by laws were adopted for a council of labor. These unions will elect dele gates this week, who will meet at the armory next Sunday at 3 p. m. and elect tie council of labor officers. Henry McClarty, the lad who struck Henry Shetter, another boy, on the head with a stone because the latter abused him, was up for trial in the recorder's court yesterday. The wound ed boy is confined to his home and the attending physician says will not be able to appear in court for nine days. The case was continued until that time. A heavy shower fell yesterday morn ing from an almost cloudless sky. The storms of late have been playing many freaks here. A lightning bolt struck the residence of Judge Ainsworth, but did no further damage than to knock a few shingles from the roof. If these electrioal storms continue a lightning rod agent would find a lucrative field. A most enjoyable meeting of the union Endeavor societies of the city was held Sunday night at the Presby terian church. It was a hymn ser vice, something new here. After the singing of a hymn a short biography of the author was given by some one in the coagregUMf.; Thf crowd Vhat at tended? wal very large?- rawrljpevery seat being taken. A petition is being numerously slgnelT5n Prescott for presentation to Governor Franklin praying for the par don of a boy named Burton, who is serving a term in the penitentiary for burglary. The lad's mother is confined in the Sister's hospital In Prescott hav ing sustained injuries in a runaway and several small children are dependent upon her. The case of John Clayson and Will iam Cockney was called in the record er's court yesterday. They are the two boys who while drunk recklessly ran over the four-year-old daughter of Mrs. H'irsch on Seventh avenue a . couple of days ago Clayson's father is in the nor thern part of the territory, and pend ing his arrival to make a defense for his son the case has been continued. J. W. Bolton, who was an alternate to the Republican National convention, but did not attend, was yesterday pre sented by National Committeeman Griffith with the badge which belonged to him as alternate. He is very proud of it and will keep it as a valuable souvenir. Mr. Bolton is the only col ored man elected by a territory as either delegate or alternate to the Na tional Republican convntion. 'Consul Commander Tiffany of the local camp Woodmen of the World, to day received from the sovereign camp and paid to Mrs. L. J. Wood a check of the order" for $1,000, in full payment of the insurance carried in the Wood men of the World by Sbv. L. J. Wood. This is the first loss sustained by the order here, and It is a source of much gratification that . it has been paid so prompt :y and without question. The citizens of Nogales are going to petition the war department for the establishment of a military post at that point. The recent raid on the No gales custom house by fanatic Yaquis nakes it plain that the border is in need of military protection, for an at tack is liable to be made on the place at any time and the local military company of the -National Guard is un able to cope with a large armed body. "Pawn Ticket No. 21C" was the ttHs of the play that had its initial produc tion at the park theater last night. There was 'the usual large Monday night audience and all seemed pleased with the play and the way in which the performers sustained their respective characters. The play is breezy and full of comedy something that a Phoe nix audience especially desires. Alto gether the piece 'is a splendid produc tion and admirably played and should attract large houses for the balance of the week. A press dispatch printed two weeks ago said E. M. Clark, formerly of Glen Falls, and a companion had perished in the Mohave desert in Arizona. A letter received by Horace W. Bell threw some doubt on the truth of the report. The letter was from J. A. Gal lup, secretary of the Masonic lodge at Pomona, Cal. Mr. Gallup said a report was current at Pomona that E. M. Clark had read his own obituary while sojourning in Texas, principally in El Paso. It Is now definitely known that Clark is alive and well and did not perish on the Mohave desert. PERSONAL MENTION. Jottings About Individual and Their Actions. Col. C. S. Mosten came in yesterday from El Paso. J. P. iMoWilliams and wife have gone to Prescott on a few days' visit. Mrs. P. H. Coyle has returned from her summer sojourn on the coast. Miss .Maud Brown returned yester day from a visit to relatives in Flor ence. Mrs. Myrtle Mathews has returned from a several weeks' sojourn in Cal ifornia. Hugh Bell of the firm of Cook & Bell, jewelers, yesterday returned from an eastern trip. F. W. Howard and wife have re turned from a three 'months' trip to the Grand canyon. IE. 0.

Judge Wm. Barnes of Tucson came, in yesterday to take part in the grand silver ratification last night. Miss Anita Yaeger last evening left for Flagstaff to spend a few weeks for the benefit of her health. She was ac companied by her father. A son was born to the wife of J. J. Gardiner a couple of days ago at Los Angeles. The many friends of Mr. Gardiner in Phoenix extend congratu lations. F. . Jones and E. Carter, who are working the Humbug mine, have re turned from a visit of Inspection of the IPhoenix mine, with a view to bonding the same. Mulford Windsor, business manager of the Yuma Sun, came down yester day afternoon from the north where he has 'been enjoying a vacation. He returned to Yuma last night. W. C. McFarland, an old time friend of Recorder Kincaid, is in the city. He hails from Cleveland, Texas, and this is his 'first introduction to this valley. He expresses himself charmed with what he has seen thus far. H. S. Creighton, a brother of Mrs. Shirley Christy, arrived Sunday from Des Moines, Iowa, on a short visit. This is the first visit here and he is delighted with what little of the coun try he has seen since his arrival. Attorney-General Wilson and wife came down from Prescott yesterday morning to attend the free silver rally last night. The general and his es timable -wife are always, .weloatt vis" Kore to; Phoenix. '" ' ' ' J.' L. : B. Alexander returned' yester day morning from atrip to the coast. J. Verity is a new arrival in the city from Chicago. He has traveled most extensively seeking a climate benefi cial for the cure of catarrh. He thinks he has found the place in the Salt River valley. PAID IN LEAD. A Man Who Applies for His Wages Receives Bullets Instead. A novel manner of paying a debt, but in the long run perhaps, a very ex pensive method, has been inaugurated by Geo. F. Kemper who lives on the Black canyon road. Yesterday afternoon a highly indig nana and pale faced individual named Frank Ray called upon Justice Morris and demanded a warrant for the ar rest of Mr. Kemper. His story if proven true will doubt less cause Mr. Kemper considerable trouble and expense to clear himself in the eyes of the law. Ray said that he had been working for Kemper, but quit some days ago. He called on his former employer yesterday and re quested that he be paid the salary due him for work rendered. Kemper re ceived him pleasantly and when he made the demand for his money smiled and said: "Oh, yes; I'll pay you." Saying this he entered the house and Ray waited outside, thinking he was going to get Ms hard earned wages. Kemper almost immediately reap peared and instead of the cash he held in his hand a gun of the Smith & Wes son pattern and capable of discharg ing five bullets, with more or less ac curacy, and perhaps it is owing to the inaccuracy of the range of the bullets that Ray lived to tell his tale. Ray was standing about ten feet away when Kemper made his appearance. He pointed the weapon at Ray and said: "Here's your salary," or words to that effect. (He then pulled ihe trigger and a Dullet sizzed uncomfortably close to Ray's cranium. The man with the gun did not stop until four more had been fired. Strange to relate none of the bullets struck Ray, whether it was because he bears aoharmed exist ence or owing to Kemper's poor aim, but most likely the latter' is the cor rect supposition. Ray thought he would postpone any further demands for has wages, as he did not relish being paid in lead, as it is not legal tender. DELEGATE MURPHY RETURNS. Is Still for Silver and Working for Statehood. Nathan Oakes Murphy, delegate to congress from the territory of Arizona, returned yesterday afternoon from the east, coming through from Washing ton direct, save for a stop of a day at Prescott. He was greeted in all pleas ure during the afternoon by his many local friends and was kept more than busy in responding to the many saluta tions of his constituents in replying to the inquiries relative to the work of the last session and in regard to the election prospects in the east. He is In very apparent good' health. As to the campaign Governor Mur phy had little to say save that he left Arizona a silver man and returns the same. Apropos of the silver question the genial ex-governor had a number of new tales, among them being one about as follows: Billy Morrison is noted for his stor ies and even the financial question is not sacred from his tongue and wit. Said he the other day: "This man Bryan speaks of biblical matters when he asserts that, 'Ye shall not crucify man upon a cross of gold.' I would remind him that the grand original crucifixion would not have happened had not Judas Iscariot got stuck on silver." As to statehood Governor Murphy had little to say, except that 'the con ditions prevailing at the last session rendered the passage of such a bill practically impossible. All that could have been done was done in the inter- 'Tis Pretty, 'TisTrue, All sizes and Widths in this Twentieth Century Shoe DARK TAN, THE PRICK, .7$3 507.

He is yet hopeful and believes that with a settlement of the present political muddle the way to. the sovereignty of Arizona will be made clear. Governor Murphy will stay but a few days, leaving Phoenix for a short tour of the southern part of the terri tory. FEARFUL SHOOK. H. M. Willis Used as a Football by a Whimsical Bolt of Lightning. H. M. Willis, the young attorney, yesterday morning narrowly missed being jerked hence to the happy hunt ing ground. Willis lives on Center street near Judge Ainsworth's, and during .the progress of the storm yes terday morning was standing near a window looking into the rear yard. He had just stooped over to pick up his spectacles when a sudden flash almost blinded him. Samultaneously there was a loud roar like a fire of musket ry. Willis threw his hands to his face to hide the awful glare and felt him self propelled backwards until his flight was stopped by coming in con tact with a door leading to a bedroom just fourteen feet from where he was standing when the lightning struck. He was uninjured, save the breath was 'knocked out of him by his violent contact with the door. The shock to his nervous system was such that he never fully recovered himself all day. The lightning struck within fifty feet of the house, attracted no doubt by a roll of barbed wire. After striking the earth it was deflected and knocked a few shingles from the roof of Judge Ainsworth's house. The hole made by the bolt in the earth is about a foot in diameter and Willis says when it struck the dirt was thrown ten feet in the air. There's health in Schilling's Best tea.
