Jack Harkins, who resided in Phoe
nix eleven years ago when it was a
small, but prosperous, village, returned
yesterday morning. He was immedi
ately recognized by many old-timers,
who became reminiscent at the sight
of the familiar face of Mr. Harkins.
Upon arriving here he was turned com
pletely around, for the only landmark
he saw was the old Commercial cor
ral. ' For the past seven years Mr.
Harkins has resided in Oregon, where
he holds the state championship for
practical horseshoeing. He will go
into business in Phoenix.
It is noticed that the lease plates
have all been taken off the S. F., P. &
P. engines, the last one- being removed
on Thanksgiving. When the loco
motives are purchased, the works sell
ing them adorn them with a lease
plate unless the full purchase price is
paid, which is rarely the case, and
this plate remains until the engine is
paid for. Although the S. F., P. & P.
road has been in operation to Prescott
but a little over three years ana to
Phoenix less than two years, it has
already paid in full for all its loco
motives. Prescott Journal-Miner.
Workmen will shortly commence
building the extension to the Presby
terian church. The addition will be
made to the room occupied by the
Young People's Christian Endeavor
society. The society has grown so
lately that the folding doors between
the room and the church auditorium
have to be opened in order to seat the
crowd. The south wall will be ex
tended twenty-five feet. The pastor's
study will be located in the new quar
ters and there will also be an extra
room for use on social nights. About
$500 has been already subscribed for
A few days ago smoke was seen is
suing from the Alexander building,
corner of Wall and Washington streets.
Several people made an exhaustive ex
amination of the building, but could
not discover what occasioned the
smoke, and the inmates were prepar
ing to move out when it was found
that the smoke came from the room
occupied by B. A. Fickas. He had
made a fire in the grate and the flue
being defective, the smoke filled the
building. Nearly every one in the
building took out an insurance policy
from Mr. Fickas and it is now hinted
that the wily insurance man had an
eye to business when he had the peo
ple watching his smoke.
Coal mining is promising to become
an important industry in Arizona. In
the northern part of the territory ex
tensive bodies of bituminous coal are
encountered north and east of the
Painted Desert region. This coal
crops out in many places, and at one
point has a thickness of twenty-three
feet. The San Carlos coal lands lie
east of the Painted Desert tract and
extend northeast into Colorado and
New Mexico. It comes to the surface
in many places, and as far as now
known, consists of three strata, the
first two having a thickness of four
feet, while the last and lower one is
often found fifteen feet in thickness
One thing which has prevented the
development of the San Carlos coal
measures is the fact that it is covered
by the Indian reservation, and unless
some steps are taken by congress no
work can be done.- Mining Industry.

HAPPY FOOTBALL PLAYERS.
AN EVENING OF ENJOYMENT.
The members of the Phoenix foot
ball team feel highly elated over their
second victory over the Indian team.
The game was an exciting one and sev
eral of the players received sundry
scratches and bruises as pleasant re
minders of the occasion. Willis of
the Phoenix team was knocked down
during the game and about a dozen
men danced the Highland fling on his
ribs. The services of the field sur
geon were required to count the ribs
and ascertain if any were broken.
Willis Teceived his reward, however,
and the plaudits of the spectators by
making a drop-kick from the field that
scored five points for his team. The
Phoenix boys now feel confident that
they could- defeat the Princeton or
Yale elevens in a canter.
