It will be remembered that on Or about the first of August the Halder man case, in which the friends of the Haldermans made a grea effort to in duce Acting Governor Chas. Akers to commute the sentence of those boys from death to life imprisonment; or,;, failing in that, to get him to grant them a respite of thirty or sixty days. Mr. Akers gave several days to a hear ing, and after considering the case in., all the details, during which time al-" leged new evidence and every influence both inside and outside the .territory was brought to bear upon him, he decided there was nothing to justify him in granting executive clemency. He therefore decided not to interfere with the decisions of the court but al lowed the judgment to stand. An ap peal was taken to the president. . The case was urgent, for unless a reprieve or stay of sentence was granted, the Haldermans would hang on the 10th of August. The president had no time to investigate, and therefore granted a reprieve until October 5, 1900. Since, then all the papers in the case that were submitted to Gov. Akers were laid before the attorney general and. the president. These documents have been given a most careful examination and today Secretary Akers received from the department of justice a com munication informing him that his de cision had been fully approved. This is a complete vindication of the course of Secretary Akers in the matter and of course has convinced the president that Mr. Akers is a man who can be trusted to do what is right. Gazette. The Old Clock. As an evidence of the disorganizing effects of thelate democratic convention, the staid, virtuous old town clock on the dome of the court house yesterday deliberately and with malicious intent, struck thirteen at one o'clock. That old time piece has done duty up in mid air for many years. It has witnesse4 floods, plaza meetings, changes in Ari zona's governors, and various other calamities, but always was true to the people of Maricopa county. But yestei day the deviltry of the territorial demo cracy was more than it could stand and the old jade got dizzy and went out on a strike and hammered out thirteen o'clock. Gazette. Still More Counterfeiting. The Secret Service has unearthed an other band of counterfeiters and secured a large quantity of bogus bills, which are so cleverly executed that the aver age person would never suspect them of being spurious. Things of great value are always selected by counterfeiters for imitation, notably the celebrated Hos tetter's Stomach Bitters, which has many imitators but no equals for indi gestion, dyspepsia, constipation,' ner vousness and general debility. The Bitters sets things right in the stomach, and when the stomach is in good order it makes good blood and plenty of it. In this manner the Bitters get at tbe seat ot strength and vitality, and restore vigor to the weak and debilitated. Be ware of counterfeits when buying.
