"A feature of the orange market thin

fine phape. It was larite, rich In color,
smooth skins and flavored lit for tho

THE OASIS CLUB
A Haw Organization for Sociability
Some days ago mention was made of
a dinner party given at the residence of
Professor and Mrs. A. J. McClatchie.
So far aa known at the time the gath
ering was of no special significance
ether than a good meal and a Jolly
time, but it resulted In the formation
last night of a new club for gentlemen
which it is believed will grow, prosper
and be of great benefit to Its members
and possibly to others.
The club Is select to some extent,
though not entirely exclusive. Most of
the members are graduates nf some
school of acknowl?dged standing and
aside from the social features the oo
Jscts of the club are the discussion of
ciuestlons of a scientific or economic
nature. The officers for the ensuing:
year were elected last night and a con
stitution nnd by-laws were adopted.
The club will meet twice a month and
lt by-laws require that each metin
shall be begun with a good dinner. That
is the first and an all-important article
of faith. Following the dinner will
come the reading of cne or more papers
and discussion of the subjects intro
fT?red. The first meeting was held last
night at Coffee Al's place and bearnn
with a banquet. In accordance with law.
and which was appreciated, as all
members of the club In good standing
are required to bring their appetites
with them. .The club Is p-itternd after
the famous Sunset club of Chicago, but
it has been appropriately named the
On!s club. The officers elected are:
Chnncellor. Prof. A. J. McClatchle: sec
retary. Mr. Dwight TJ. Heard, and
treasurer. Mr. H. A. Diehl.

Mr. George H. Cook was seen yester
day in the hope of getting Home late
authentic Information relative to the
big diamond robbery at Bisbee. but he
said he had heard nothing regarding
it except a dispatch from Mr. Craw

of everything and would stay there for
a day or two in the hope of setrurtng a
clew to the robbers and their where

THE ESCAPE OF HAYFORD
A More or Less Detailed Account of
A copy of the Santa Barbara Inde
pendent was received at the ofiice of the
! sheriff yesterday announcing the safe
arrival in that city of Constable Hop
kins and his famous prisoner, the Rev
erend Josepri Anderson, alias George
Hayford, after a most eventful jour
ney. Constable Hopkins le"t Phoenix with
Hayford a week ago last night. Ander
son escaped by jumping from the train
this side of Yuma, but was captured
on the evening of the same day. Th?
Independent says that Hayford arrived
in Santa Barbara in a badly demoral
ized condition. He had been painfully
hurt on one side and his head was se
verely cut- He and Hopkins told two
rtories about the escape, and they were
alike In only one particular, and that
was that Hayford got off the train.
Hopkins said that after the train left
Blaisdeil and was running at forty-five
miles an hour Hayford sprang from his

The officer reached for him. but ( never

himself. He tried to get the conductor
t Ktop the train, but he refused-to do
It. saying that Hay ford was probably
dead, and if he w?re not it would be
of no ueo for the officer to get out on
the desert in the darkness. He could
not find his trail, much less follow it.
The conductor assured Mr. Hopkins
that his prisoner could not get away. -He
went on to Yuma and the next
morning at daylight Deputy Sheriffs
Neahr and Martines started out after
the fugitive. They had no trouble in
finding the place where Hayford had
disembarked. He had turned somer
saults for several rods and wherever
he hit the ground there Was a hole In
it. The officers could not see how he
had survived. They got on his trail
and followed it ull day and in the even
ing saw a man walking slowly toward
a prospector's camp. He moved as if
he were eore. That man was the Rev
erend Joseph Anderson, and his appear
ance of soreness was the first honest
and genuine thing about him that any
body had seen in recent years. He was
taken back to Yuma and put into jail
for the nfeht. When Constable Hopkins
went to see him the prisoner assailed
him in the vilest language and told him
that If he took him back to Santa Bar
bara the first thing he would do after
he got out of his trouble would be to
Hayford says that he did not think
at first of escaping, but the idea was
suggested to him by Hopkins careless
ness and general neglect of duty. He
said that he wanted a drink and told
Hopkins so. Hopkins was asleep. Hay
ford repeated his request several times,
hut could not awaken his custodian.
Finally he said: "Hop, if you don't ge
me a drink I'll leave this train.' He
left, but he did not describe his sensa
tions while he was getting off. He said
that when his captors came up he was
hunting somebody to whom he might
surrender, he was in so great pain.
Conditions in Eltzzard Stricken Re

Cheyenne, Wyo., Doc. 16. The severe
snow and wind storm which set in last
Monday night and which has been ac
companied by the coldest weather seen
in this state for year's is still raging in
some sections. Conditions are becom
ing more favorable for stock interests,
as the cattle and sheep will now be able
to secure feed on ranges where the
snow has been blown off.
The loss of life in Wyoming due to
the blizzard Is probably m excess of ten
persons. Five persons are known to
have lost their lives. Of these three
were herders, one a railroad man an;
the other a woman. Five herders were
reported lost near Point of Rocks, and
as their dogs came to town, the men
undoubtedly perished. A civil engineer
named Hemingway, who left Casper
several days ago to visit a ranch, got
lost and searching parties are scouring
the prairies for him. His friepds believe
he is dead.
