THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN.
SEVENTH YEAK. PIICENIX ARIZONA, THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 15, 1896. VOL. VII. NO. 126. RUEAL DELIVERY SYSTEM New Postoffice Innova' tion. Free Delivery Extended Three Miles Out. Territorial Library, The New Systam Will Go Into Effect as Soon as Official Notification Is Received. The Republican two days ago received a special dispatch from Wash ington to the effect that the postoffice department had extended the order, providing lor a rural free delivery sys tem for Maricopa county. A iRepubllcan. representative yester day interviewed Postmaster- Thomas in regard fto the matter,' but. he said (that be had as yet received no official notification from Washington. Under the rural delivery system, as explained by Mr. Thomas, the free delivery service will extend three and a Ihalf miles in all directions from the 'postoffice. Boxes wild Ibe stationed In places mo convenient to the public and the mall will be collected by car riers (appointed for that purpose. The same rules will apply to the delivery tof mall, with the exception that those people living within the Ithree and a half mile limit will have their mall delivered Instead of having to come to the postoffice after it Postmaster Thomas says that he is already delivering mail one and a half miles from the postoffice to all direc 'tlons, the limits having been recently extended and an additional carrier ap - painted. The new order will be a wel come one to those living outside of the city, for it will save tlhem considerable trouble in getting their mail. Recently the postoffice authoriities at Washington issued an order calling the thirty postoffice inspectors of the United States to Washington and at a conference held there it was decided to try the rural delivery system in thirty of the cities' of the Union as an experiment Phoenix was selected as one of .the thirty, and Postmaster Thomas feels highly elated What this city should be so recognized. - It shows that the city is considered of some im portance 'by the Washington authori ties. There are hundreds of cities throughout the Union with Itwice the population of Phoenix and that this city Should be included In the last is a compliment indeed. There is only one city In the United States alt the present time that has a rural delivery system and that is Chartestown, West Virginia. The postmaster is of the opinion that the rural delivery will necessitate the employment of only two additional men. MARICOPA'S GROWTH. How the Population Has More Than Doubled in Ten Years. JDt will 'be of interest to many to know how the county has grown during the .past ten years. During that period the population has more than doubled. The estimate of population is based on the registration returns, It being estimated that there are five in 'habitaats to one registered voter. The number of registered voters in 1886 was 1,959. In the year 1890 the num ber increased to 2,443, and in 1892 the number of registered voters was 3,214, a gain of over a thousand voters in six years, which practically means an in crease of population, according to the basis of five to one, of over 5,000 In 1894 'the number of registered vot ers was 4,346; considerable more than double the number in 1886. Up to the present time the various registering officers throughout the county 'have turned into the county re corder about 4,000 names. There are several officers yet to hear from and it is expected the number will reach that of two years ago, although at that ume mere were many transient voters tnat are not here this election. These are the cor rest figures and without doubt the next two years will see a couple of thousand more names added to .the great register of Mari copa county that are not there this year.

They ordered the fireman to cover his head with a cotton sack which, they handed him. The engineer was or dered to stop the tram and told to in dicate the express car, which he did.

The Builders' exchange hall was crowded this morning with delegates to the eleventh annual encampment of the Union Veteran legion of ithe United States, and; wihich i,m brought to ithe capttal several thousand members cl the order and Itheir friends. After the usual welcoming exercises, National Commander George C. James of Cin cinnati delivered ihis annual address.

Although it is obligatory upon any comrade to blackball any candi date whose record as a soldier is not above suspicion and whose reputation as a citizen 8s not clear, yet tlhe legion has grown from twelve encampments in 1886 until it has spread into almost every state in the Union, and embraces 134 encampments with a total member ship of between ten and eleven thou sand.

It is regarded as .probable that in the event of a real disturbance at Con stantinople, the only case in which the Bancroft could be of the slightest use, Terrell would be able to bring tlhe ship through without serious objection, but in the present aspect of Turkish af fairs there is no reason, to look fori trouble.

KILLED FOR HIS MONEY A Recluse Found Dead in His hut. Bloody Hatchet Tells the Story of the Deed. Assassin After Committing Murder Attempts to Hide the Crime by Arson. UEAVENIWORTH, Kan., Oct 14. Alfred Cummings, a veteran of both the Mexican and civil wars, and for-: merly a memlber of Company H, Thirty-ninth Iowa tofamtry, who came to tlhe soldiers' Ihome about three years ago, iHit living latterly as a recluse in a, nut Just outside tine grounds, was found dead in his squalid abode late this afternoon by William A. Stewart, a meighibor, who, (happening to pass by, saw CUmmings' door ajar and, looking In, -espied the corpse. . Blood had 'been spattered about the room, and it was evident that murder had 'been committed. As Cummings (had been seen, alive within twenty-four hours, the crime must have been com mitted last night or this morning. An examination, of the corpse re vealed a single deep gash over the right ear, and it is inferred from the gravdty of the wound that death, was instantaneous, Judging from the po sition of the corpse, Cummings had probably been struck down while sit ting at table. A bloody hatchet with which ithe deed had evidently been done, was found In tlhe room, and scat- . tered about were partially burned newspaperis and the like, showing that an attempt had toeen made to conceal the murder by arson. The assassin had probably fled as soon as he 'had started the fire, but the flames ihad died down before the mat tress, leading up to and under which many of the papers were found,, was ignited. The matter was reported, to the city officials and at first they were all at sea. Then it was 'learned that a young tramp .had stopped with Cummings for several days, that the two had quar reled and that the tramp had disap peared. .Every effort is being made to find this tramp. It was at first thought that Cum mings Ihad nothing worth stealing and that nevenge must, have been the mo tive for the murder, hut Mayor Hook said tonight that Cummings had .been a plasterer here for fifteen years and had between $2,000 and $3,000 Which he was afraid to trust to the ibanks and which he always carried with him or hid about him, but as only 25 cents was found on the tody the inference is clear.
