1 hat we are ready, may be confirmed by the hundreds of satisfied customers, who answered yesterday s roll-call.
Thousands of yards of fine, new Embroideries again today at j to less than what they are actually worth
display and a Sale of such extraordinary importance that it ought to create interest more widespread than any Embroidery Sale held here in many
years. No accurate impression, of its magnitude is passible without inspection right at the tables and counters. We can't be too. emphatic about it.

talk of arresting the proprietor of the

While the Phoenix Cantaloupe asso
ciation has not been creating much
vlsitble stir of dust, or latelv had
much to say. yet the fact is that there
has been considerable actiVity mani
fested and things are shaping up very
satisfactorily. One of the members
yesterday stated that fully 400 acres of
ground has been signed up, plowed
and placed in readiness for planting
soon. More Interest than at any time
has been taken In the proposition and
the prospective growers are pleased
with the project which promises good
financial returns. The representatives
of the distributors will be in Phoenix
within a day or two, when the business
dealings and contracts will be finally
dosed up for the coming season.
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. His wife
will arrive in a few weeks to join him.
Mr. Gaston was formerly connected
with eastern newspapers in a reporto
AN ACIDIFICATION OF THINGS
The sidewalk in front of the Adams
Pharmacy and the sewerage in the ad
joining gutter and orher things In that
vicinity were yesterday treated to a
highly efficacious bath in muriatic
acid. 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.

THE CLINE CASE Judge A. C. Ba- :
ker has been retained to defend Juhn
Cline and sons, who are held in Globe
on the charge of killing Charles Ed
wards in Tonto. Basin. He left last
night for Globe to prepare, for the ex
amination which is set for next Mon
day. In this connection It may be
said that Ed Howell, who lives in that
section, was in Phoenix recently, and
stated that while he did not believe
the Cllnes were guilty there were some ;
circumstances that threw a great deal !
of suspicion on them. He said there i
was a story that Edwards and one of i
the Cline boys left Roosevelt together!
though it has been previously reported
that some hours elapsed between the
departure of the two men.
A RANCH SALE. Through the
agency of J. L. Irvin yesterday was
sold the Nelson Bradley ranch of 160
acres one mile south of the capital, to'
W. G. Tolleson for a consideration of
$16,000. It is well Improved, has fine
buildings, and about fourteen acres is
devoted to a pear orchard, the rest to
grain and alfalfa. It is considered one
of the best paying ranches In the val
ley. Mr. Tolleson recently came here
from Spartanburg, S. C, and made the
investment for his son, Ray Tolleson,
who will remain here and look after
it. Mr. Tolleson is engaged In the
wholesale drug business in the south,
but is so favorably impressed with
the valley that he may return here
later and locate permanently. Mr.
Irvin reports the realty business as
looking decidedly good Just now, the
prospective buyers being more nu
merous and active than at any time

matter to the offices of the sheriff and "
the city marshal from which the search !
was continued In every possible direc- I
tlon. 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
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

NINE MINERS KILLED.
The woods in phoenix and vicinity
are full of democratic patriots willing
to serve the party in almost any ca
pacity which will need filling when
the political season ODens. It is un-
dersteed that this county can furnish '.

tional convention ct Chicago if that
many should be required of Maricopa.
Thev are Charles Woolf of Tempe; W.
D. Bell. W. T. Smith. Selim Michelson
and J. H. Langston of Phoenix.
There Is a fear among them though.
that Maricjopa will not be allowed more I
than one delegate and at least two of
them would prefer to be national com
mitteeman anyhow. It !s stated that
Mr. Michelson Is an open candidate
for that position and that Judge '
Langston is r.t present a receptive
candidate for that position, and that
he Is manifesting symptoms of becom- J
ing ar. active one. I
It !s further stated on his behalf,
