On Tuesday morning about 4 o'clock an unusually large and brilliant meteor fell from the south to southeast, oc cupying about seventeen seconds in its transit. Tho beautiful sight was witnessed by night watchman S. W. Bayley. Mayor Shanssey made this office a social call last evening and informed us that the work of tearing down the hill on First street will soon be under way.

Attorney Ellinwood secured a writ of attachment for one of the Yuma steamboats, but when offered the rop erty he was compelled to refuse the offer as the thing didn't have wings. Gazette. It might be inferred from the above that some one of the Colo rado Ste m Navigation Co's. boats had been attached, but such is not the case. No boats belong at Yuma save those operated by Captains Mellon and Polhamus therefore Mr. Ellin wood's business must have been with a Needles boat. Chas. V. Connors died Sunday. even ing about 9 o'clock after a lingering illness of several weeks. Mr. Connors was one ot Yuma's prominent citizens and many there are who mourn his loss, he dying in the very prime of life-aged 40 ye? rs. The deceased was a member of the local lodge of the A. YUMA VS. FORTUNA. Thanksgiving Game of Ball Proves A Victory for Yuma. Fortuna came and saw but did not conqueor. No veni, vidi, vici flashed o'er the wires to the waiting, pulsat ing camp, and the little army Bent out to win fame and add lustie to the glory of the greatest mining camp on earth returned' with drooping pinions. But their's was not the disgrace for the' contested nobly against a ball team that has never known defeat, and whose penaut will yet wave tri umpantly over Arizona and the South west. Tucson, Phoenix, El Paso, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, look to your laurels ! The Fortuna boys came in on the early morning train and were marshal ed around town under the manage ment of Hon. John Doan, who played center field m the nine. The oppos ing nine were a fine appearing set of men, the sight of which made our boys a little dubious and the majority of snorting men flocked to the stand ard of the miners. But our boys can play ball and they went into the field with determination and concerted ac tion with the result that Fortuna lost to a score of 22 to S a large score, but which did not spoil the game as the same was created in the last two in nings. The game was called promptly at 1:30 by the umpire, Mulford Winsor. Yuma took the field with the follow ing men in the following positions: Martin, catcher; Balsz, pitcher; Coons, first b.vse; F. Meeden, second base; Ramirez, shortstop; Schuckman, third base; B. Meeden, left field; Willard, center field; C. Meeden, right field. Fortuna lined up as follows: Bate man, catcher; J. Garrard, pitcher; Holloway, first base; C. Garrard, sec ond base; GundUtck, shortstop; Spenee, third base ; Selella, right field; Doan, center field; Snowden, left field. Everybody in Yuma turned out to witness the game and a large delega tion from Fortuna was also present. Yuma was first to the bat. Barney Meeden, the invincible, took the bat and found the first ball tossed to him and before Balsz and Martin were put out Barney had succeeded in scoring, Then the boys played ball. Up to the sixth inning the score stood 1 to 0. In the sixth inning Yuma scored five runs. Fortuna failed to score until tne last half of the eighth inning when the Yuma boys made a false play and Fortuna made five runs before the lnodoo was broken. In the seventh inning Yuma scored seven runs and in the eighth four. In the ninth Yuma made five and For tuna three making the total score 22 to 8 in favor of Yuma. In the seventh inning Schuckman's nose eimic in contact with Doan's heel on third base, and while the wound was very painful for a time it was not serious, Will Riley was substituted on third base. Fred Meeden on second had his little finger knocked out of place, which was the total of the day's casualties. The game was completed at four o'clock and the victors dined the los ing team at the S. P. Hotel and later tendered a grand ball to their recep tion at Elks hall. Some of those present who are in a position to know say that up to the seventh inning it was the finest game of amateur ball ever played. The Fortuna bo3'sare gentlemen every one prai&e in the fairness, of his decisions. Both sides congratulated him at the close of the game. And Manager Greenleaf also jub ilates. The doctor is an excellent manager and he will lead his team on to other victories. It seems like a shame to defeat such excellent fellows as the Fortuna's, but we had to do it. Most of the citizens of Yuma are honest enough to say that the nine surprised them. CASEY AT TILE BIT. "Casey at the Bat" is still a favor ite and is called for at the end of every baseball game. For years it has been a stand-by and to a lover of the game can be read over and over again, and each time some new and laugh able point found. There was ease in Casey's manner as he stepped into his place. There was pride in Casey's hearing and a smile on Casey's face; And when rcsponcliy to the cheers, he lightly doffed his hat. No stranger in the crowd could doubt 'twas Casey at the bat! Ten thousand eves wore on him as ho rubbed his hands with dirt. Ten thousand tongues applauded as he wiped them on his shirt. And while the writhing pitcher ground tho ball in to ins lap, Defiance glanced in Casey's "eye a sneer curled Casey's lip. And now the leather-covered sphere came hurling Uirougn the air, And Casey stood a-vratching it in haughty grandeuii mere. Close by the sturdy batsman the ball unheeded sped "That haint my style," said Casey "Strike one!' tho umpire said. From the benches black with people there went up a munieu roar, Like the beating of the storm waves on a stern and and distant ihore. Kill him! Kill the umpire!" shouted some one from the stand And it's likely they'd have killed him had not Casey raised his hand; With a smile of Christian charity great Casio's visage shone, lie stilled the rising tumult and bade tho game iro on; lie signalled to the pitcher and the ball once more it Hew, But Casey still ignored it and the umpire said atriKe two: "Fraud!" sliout the maddened thousands, and the echo answered l'vaurt! But one scornful look from Casey an J tho audience was awed. They taw his face grow stern and cold; they saw his muscles strain, nd they knew that Casey would not let that ball go by again. The smile is gone from Casey's face, his teothare clenched with hate, And he beats with cruel violence his bat upon the plate. iVnd now the pitcher holds tho ball, and now he lets it go, And now the air is shattered by the force of Ca3cy's blow. Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright, The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts arc light; iVnd somewhere men are singing, somewhere children shout. But there's uo "joy in MudvKIe mighty Casey has "strncK out. School Report. O. U. W. and the funeral was conduct- and the game was free from disputes ed under the auspices of that order, land bickerings. Mr. Connors was a candidate, on the democratic ticket for the office of pro bate judge at the last county election and was defeated by a small majority of votes. He leavos a wife, three small children, a mother, sister and three brothers to mourn his death. Advertised Letters.

Lon Martin is an ideal Captain and the boys hang with him. Captain Martin has a perfectly organized team and with some more practice no team in Arizona can turn them down. When it comes to pitching Joe Balsz js strictly at home. Cool, collected, never becoming rattled Joe throws a ball that even now it would puzzle a professional to find. A little more practice, Joe, and you'll be a star. John Doan could run like he was going to the legisluture until he reach ed third and there Schuckman. Martin and Lalsz would stp his mad career. Jimmy Garrard, who pitched for Fortuna is an excellent ball tnsser and Fortuna's defeat cannot be laid at his door. The. Fortuna team is composed of a fin lot of men and the best of feeling prevailed. The,. Meeden boys are ball players, at the oat and in their positions. Willard is to be congratulated on the work he did in center field. Iconic R i mincz was built to order ' the position of shortstop. Louie oi ru:) like at blud streak an 1 has the faculty of being all over the fielu" att once. He is alo one of the boat base runners in the nine. Coons plays like a professional and his work on first base is simply beauti ful. Martin's throws'from home. to sec ond were beauts.
