Berry A LOST WOMAN Mrs. Jeff Martin Did Not Know Where She Was or Where She Was Going Among th passengers who arrived from the north yesterday morning w a very old weman who left the train and started ud the track. The driver of the Commercial hotel bus noticed her, and observing that she acted as if lost, went after her. At first she did not know hr name, but finally she re collected that It was Martin and that she had come from Prescott. She was surprised to lenrn that the was in FhoenlJc. She knew many persons here she said but at the mcment she could recall the ames of none of them. Sh did not know her destination, but slix remembered that she had started for "oine othe point than Phoenix She was taken to the Commercial ho tel and Deputy Sheriff Duncan was sent for on the theory that an insane woman had been found. He took her to the Jones lodging house and yester day morning she was visited by Dr Danieron, who said that she was not Insane but only badly confused. By this lime the eld woman was able to recall more of the events of the few preceding hours. She said that she had a daughter, a Mrs. Dozard. living in Prescott and that her daughter had accompanied her to the train. She al so remembered that ?he had two son3 living somewhere, Jesse and Weslev Martin. A telephone message was sent to the office cf the sheriff at Prescott and the old woman was recognized from the description that had been given of her. It was stated that she had start ed for Gila Bend, where her husband. Jeff Martin resides. In reply to the questions wMch had been asked her here, her husband was the last of her relatives whom she recalled. But she only knew tha she had a husband and that his name was Jeff Martin. Sho had no idea where he lived. When she was found the old weman had a ticket from Prescott. a purs containing Jf. and a baggage check. It was supposed that she had a check for $20, but it could not be found. Money was wired to her from Prescott yester day afternoon and last night she was put cn the r-outh bound train for Gila Bend. The conductor? will look after her until she reaches her destination. NO REGISTRATION TODAY Some Hints About Christmas Business at the Post Office. There are some hundreds of peo ple in this city who have not sent away their Christmas presents yt and It is altogether likely that many have set that business aside for a Sun day job. If so, it will t2 a kindnes3 to them to announce that it will be of no use to take packages 10 the postoffice this morning for registration for they will not be accepted. The posteffice re ceives no registered .mail from patrons on Sunday. Registered mail somes in. as usual, of course, and therefore any thing received in time m?y be deliver ed on Sunday at the tostof fi.ee win dow. The ChristmasV business at the post office Is even larger than was expect ed but thus far it has been nicely han dled. Lcng lines of people are In front of each window but they are taken care of with dispatch and the wait U not nearly so long as It may seem to a busy person. The assistant postmas ter's office has been turned into a reg istry department temporarily and tha doer to it is blocked by a desk over which scores of packages pass every day. It is a wise idea to register all pack ages at this season of the year even If not valuable, for the sender thereby secures a receipt, not only from the rostoffice, but if the package Is deliv ered, from the addressee also. The sender, toe, can save time by putting his own address in one corner of the package before presenting it for reg titration, as that is a formality that must be attended to. The registry business is stupendous at this time of year and somewhere In the neighborhood cf 200 parcels ar sent out daily from the Phoenix of fice. On- Friday night the outgoing mail from this office amounted to two wagon loads, fifteen tie sacks being filled with packages that were net reg istered. THE BLACK WARRIOR The "Two Presidents" of the Conv pany in Town. The two presidents of the Black War rior Copper Mining company arrived in town yesterday. That is, they are not both presidents now, for the only presi ddent is Col.. James A. Fleming, who within eight years has developed tha Black Warrior and made it one of the best known coppsr properties in the west. Some time ago some of the eastern stockholders of the company, contrary to law. held an election in the east and elected Mr. A. II. Chase, of Philadel phia, to succeed Colonel Fleming. The place for the holding of the election was Globe and when the proper time for hclding it arrived It was held and Colonel Fleming was re-elected. Mr. ChSswr was not a party t the opposition to him for they are now and have been the warmest friends. They came to th city together. Thev feel that being opposition presidents, they ought to find something to quarrel about but so far they have failed to do so. They are both agreed regarding the management of the property and Mr. Chase has re linquished any .authority that the stockholders tried to invest him with at the eastern election. The Black Warrior is looking better all the time and the faith of Colonel Fleming - and his associates grows stronger with the further development of the property. It is one of the few mining enterprises which has never in the development stage been in financial entanglements, a circumstance which may be said to be entirely due to the management of the president. Whatever litigation has been threat ened was quickly and amicably dis posed of at the late meeting at Globe. Colonel Fleming will remain in the city a month. The women who really "assist" when a woman gives a party are those the guests do not see, and whose names do not appear in the newspaper ac count of the event. Atchison Globe.
