A CONFEDERATE BILL A mining man, probably unintentionally, yester day tried to buy a ticket to California with a $50-Confederate bill, at the Southern Pacific offices. After inquir ing the rate for the round trip, he de cided to buy, had the necessary strip of paper as long as your arm made out, which entitled him to a ride on the cushions to the coast. The bill pre sented to Agent Treathaway was dim worn with age, and that functionary thought it had come over with Colum bus. The purchaser of the ticket had a magnifying glass for examining ore, which was called into service and Mr. Gatter, who is an expert on most any kind of hieroglyphics, deciphered the stamp of the Confederacy and pro nounced it no good on the F.spee. The traveler was much abashed and dis claimed any intentions to beat the rail road company in these stringent times. Ho said the bill had been palmed off on him and he never knew its utter worthlessness until yesterday. A DENVER VISITOR. John Colfax Gaston who Is a contracting printer located in Denver is a recent arrival in Phoenix and will remain for sometime enjoying the winter cllmu-te.

In removing a 110 pound glass carboy of the fluid from the side walk to the store, an lnadvertant drop to the cement walk smashed the con tainer and the acid flowed out. The sidewalks of Phoenix were never treat ed to such a powerful disinfectant. The bystanders also got their share of the escaping fumes. The loss ran up to something like $10. AFTER DOG POISONER. Consta ble Ivy left yesterday with a warrant lor Charles McDonald, who lives twelve miles west of Phoenix. He has been charged with poisoning three dogs, all three Russian ox hounds and highly valued by the owners; Two of them were' the property of J. Horton the other belonged to J. J. Addington, both of whom entered complaints. Accord ing to the general report McDonald had purchased about eight vials of strychinne with- which to kill coyotes. This he administered. It is alleged by placink it on meat and distributing It generously over the country there abouts. It is not known that he in tended to kill the dogs but is said to have confessed to placing the poisoned meat where it could be found handily by the animals. No felony charge has been issued against him and it is prob able that the case will be settled by a reasonable fine and settlement to the valuation of the dogs. The matter will come, up In Justice Kyle's court. The justice had before him yesterday Proto Ayala charged with being intoxicated. He denied the allegation but was too drunk at the time to substantiate the denial. He was assessed $7 and given time to earn it. I WHAT IS POWER Nature supplies force. Wind turm the wind-mill.

The conductors and porters of all the trains that left the city on and after Monday night were sure that they had carried no man of that de scription. Word was received in reply from the junctions at Maricopa and Ash Fork that he had not been at eith er of those places. j There was no known reason why he should have left town and the inquiry at outside points was made only after it was quite definitely known that he was no longer In Phoenix. The first fear, when he! did not return was that he might have been waylaid as he had a small sum of money In his possession when he left home. There was a later apprehension that he might have stif. fered Injury at his own hands. There is a possibility that he may yet be found wandering about some where in the neighborhood of the city and to aid in the identification of him if he should be seen, a description of him has been given out by his friends. He is twenty-eight years of age: height, 5 feet, 8 1-2 Inches; weight 137 pounds, medium build; he wore a short cropped sandy mustache; his. complex ion is slightly florid and his eyes blue; he wore a dark blue cheviot suit, made by John Reed & Co., San Francisc o and a soft black hat with the trade mark of the Hub; his shoes were black, size 7 1-2 and he had a new I vers- Johnson 38 revolver. Mr. Shiras had been connected with .the reclamation service as payroll clerk since last September and is said to have been one of the most efficient men in that branch of the service. Previous to coming to Phoenix he had resided at Los Angeles where he was employed by the City Gas com pany. Before that he had resided in San Francisco and had been employed in a clerical capacity both at the Union Iron Works and in the offices of the Santa Fe railroad company. Before coming west he had been connected with the New England National Bank of Kansas City. Any information concerning him, forwarded to the office of the sheriff, will be greatly appreciated by his friends. A RUSSIAN CHAMPION London. Jan. 30.
