W. B. C. Brown, ex-stato con
troller of California, died from a
stroke of appoplexy in Sacramento,
on tho evening of the 12th inst. .Mr.
Brown was a bom politician, a man
of crcat exeoutivo ability, with a rec
ord for purity in office and honesty
of purposo second to r.ono in the
land. He was a candidate for tho
nomination of governor on tho dem
ocratic ticket, at the time of his
death, and would have been a for
midable opponent had he lived.
At a meeting of tho republicans
held in Mineral Park last week, tho
Hon. Clark Churchill, chairman of
the Republican Territorial Commit
tee, being present, it wab unani
mously rosolved that a territorial
convention bo. held on the first Mon
day in June. Tho place decided
upon for holding such convention is
Phenix. Tins is as central a location
for holding the convention as could
have been selected, and tho time,
well, that is a little too early. July
would have been bettor. This gives
a five months' campaign, which is
entirely too long and will prove too
expensive considering tho fact that
there will bo but one territorial candidate.

an executive ollicer appears, has

ever so cursed as ho' boforo leaving

A great number of persons who

have often heard him relate tho fol
Ono day that ho had procured the
bodies oE two criminals who had
been hung, for the purpose of anat
omy, not being able to find the key
of tho desecting room, he ordered
them to bo deposited in a room con
tiguous to his bedroom. During
tho night he read and wrote late.
The clock had just struck one, when
all at once a dull sound proceeded
from tho room containing the bodies,
and the doctor went to see what
could bo the cause of the unexpected
noise. What was his astonishment,
or rather his horror, on discovering
that the sack containing the bodies
was torn asunder, and that ono of
them was sitting upright in a corner.
Poor Dr. Burton at this unexpec
ted apparition becamo tianshxed
with terror, which was increased by
observing the dead and sunken eyes
of tho corpse fixed upon him, which
ever way ho moved. The worthy
doctor, more dead than alive, now
began to beat a quick retreat without,
however, losing sight ottho object of
his terror. But the spectre lias risen
and followed him; his strength fails,
tho candle falls from his hand, and
he is now in complete darkness.
The good doctor has, however,
gained his appartment and thrown
himself upon the bed, but tho fear
ful spectre has still followed him; it
has caught him and seizes hold of
both his feet with both his hands.
At this climax of terror the doctor
loudly exclaimed. "Whoever you
are, leave ine!"
At this the spectre let go its hold
and moaned feebly these words:
"Pity, good hangman, havo pity on
Tho doctor now discovered the
mystery and regained little by little,
his composure. He exclaimed to
tho criminal who had so narrowly es
caped death, who ho was and pre

"Uo you then wisn to uestroy
mo?" exclaimed the criminal. "If I
am discoered my advonturo will be

Tho good doctor then ioso and
procured a light. Ho mufilod his
unexpected visitor in an old dressing
gown, and having made htm tako
some restoring cordial, desired to
know what crime had brought him
to tho sciffold.
Ho was hanged for high trnason.
Tho good doctor did not well know
what means to employ to save the
poor creature. Ho could not keep
him in his houso and to turn him out
would bo to expose him to certain
death. Tho only way, then, was to
get him into tho country; so dress
ing him in somo old clothes
which tho kind doctor bclected from
his wardrobo, ho left tho town early,
accompanied by his protege, whom
ho represented as his assistant. When
they got into tho open countiy tho
wretched creature threw himself at
the feet of his benefactor and liber
ator, to whom ho swore an eternal
gratitude, and tho generous doctor
having relieved his wants by a small
sum of money, the grateful creaturo
left him with many blessings and
prayers for his happinesss.
About twelve years after this oc
currence Dr. Burton had occasion to
visit Amsterdam. Having gono one
day to tho bank he was accosted by
a well dressed man ono who had
beon pointed out to him as ono of tho
most opulent merchants of the city.
Tho merchant asked him polilely if

and on his answering in tho affirma

which invitation tha worthy doctor
accepted. On arrivinrr at tho mcr-

and correcting the pages ot history it w ill
not be necessary to begin further back
than w ith the issue of thu Nugget, of
March 31st, which contains au account of
the return of the sheriffs posse from their
last and most protracted pursuit after the

Under bucrifl Woods was ample proof of the
arduouu and exhausting nature of Uio trip which
had just been brought to an nnsucccsfnl termina
tion. The posse left Tombstone Monday morn
ing at 5 o'clock, numbering 13 nun all told, In
cluding tho shenfl and undtr-shcrlft. The trail
of tho fugitives was struck by tho pursuers four
miles from town, and led in the direction of Sum
mit station, In Dragoon pass, to which point the
posso proceeded with all possible speed, fearing
that the Earp party had boarded a pa'sslng train
at tho 6tatlon and left the conntrj. Arriving
there, however, It was ascertained that tho fugi
tives bad crossed tho railroad nnd proceeded
north toward Hooker's ranch. Tho .pursuer" im

Hooker's at 7 a. m whero it was learned that tho
party they were In quest of had been tnerethe
day previous and had lift on Monday evening.
The proprietor of the lanch nt er'j refused lo tin
pari any Information concerning tho direction
taken by his whilom guists of tho daj before;
said he didn't know and wouldn't tell if ho did
know, and concluding by sajlng, "I n theofll
cers andd n the law." Ho lurnl'hed tho posse
with food for themsslvs and animals, forwhlch he
received liberal compensation but positively re
fused to supply them with fresh horses It was
alsolearneu by Shcrlfl Bchau that 'llptojj had
hire joined tho Ejrp, and that Hooker
had outfitted the entire party with
provisions, fresh horse, etc, etc. After
breakfast at the ranch, and being miablo to dis
cover the trail of tho fugitives, Dorian and Woods
started for Port Grant, 23 miles distant, with the
intention of securing the ser, ices of government

been discovered in their absence, the entire posse
took horse and departed for Eureka Springs, at
tut;, head of Aravalpa Car j on. They remained
there until Wcdnesuay morning, and becoming
satisfied that tho fugitives had not cflectcd their
escape in that direction, again rcta-ned to Hook

not quite so reticent as en the fornu r visit of the
posse. He now Inlormed the sheriffthat tue Earp
party was much tho better a'raed, and In case of
an encounter would undoubtedly get away with

A gentleman from Candelaria in
forms the Carson Appeal that the
smallest baby in the world was born
in that camp at noon on the 3d in
stant. The father is a miner in the
employ of the Northern Belle mine
and weighs one hundred and ninety
pounds. The mother is a stout,
healthy woman, weighing perhaps
one hundred and sixt pounds. The.
child is a mate, as perfectly formed
as any human being can be, but
upon its birth if only weighed eight
ounces. Its face is about the sue
of a horse chesnut, and the sue of
its limbs can readily be imagined
when wo say that a ring worn on
the little finger of its mother was
easily slipped over its foot nearly up
to tho knee. Our informant states
that it was the opinion of the attend
ing physician that the child would
live and prosper in good health, not
withstanding its diminutive propor
tions. The midget is so small that
tbrse of its size could play hide and
seek in a cigar box. This is believ
ed to be tho smallest baby ever

The following is a brief digest of the
afltr occurrences at the ranch: Sheriff
liciian asked Mr. Hooker if ho knew the
whereabouts of the Earp party. Mr. Hooker
replied that he did not kjovv and that if
he did he would not (ell him. Sheriff
liehan then s.iiil, "jou must bo upholding
murderers and outlaws, then." Hooker
said, "no sir, I am not; I know the Karps
and know you ; and I know they
have nl wjjs tiealed me like gentlemen;
d uu such laws, and damn you, and damn
your posse; they arc a set of horscthieves
and outlaws." At this one of the "honest
farmers" (?) of the posse spoke up and
siid. "damn the son of a b , he knows
w here they arc, and let us make him (ell."
At tins Hooker's hostler stepped away
for a moment and returned with a Win.
Chester, and drawing a bead on die honest
grauger said, "ou can't come here into a
gentleman's jard and call him a son of a
b ! novv jou bkin it back ! skin it back!
If jou are loooking for a fight, and come
here to talk that way you can get it before
you rind the Eirps; j'ou can get it right
Mr. Hooker then turned to Sheriff Be-
han and siid, "These ate a pretty set of
fellows jou have got with jou; a stt of
lioroo thitves and cutthroats." Bchan
and W oods both spoke up and siiid, "They
are not our associates, they are only here
on this occasion with us." Hooker re
plied, "Well, if they aie not jour associ
ates 1 will set an cxtia table for jou, aud
set them bv themselves, which he did.
TIIV.T DIAMOND STUD.
After breakfast Sheiiff Behan went out
to the stable and spoke to the hostler, say
inc, "Don't bay anjthiug about this," at
the same time taking a diamond stud from
his shirt bosom and presenting it to the
hostler, saying as he did so, "Take this,
it cost it hundred dollars, but don't say
anj tiling about what occurred here." Ho
thin tumid to Mr. Hooker and remarked,
"If I can catch the Larp party it will help
me at the next election."
Leaving the ranch, they started oft" on
ihe ttail and crossed the valley to tho loot
of the mountains and then (ook up the
valley and around to Voit Grant, where
they tried to get Indian scouts. Ilehan
oflered $500 for the sci vices of the scouts
to Col. Bidvvcll, and during the negotia
tions remit ked that he wantid them to
hunt down the H irp party, saying. "I have
jut come Horn Hooker's ranch and I
asked Mr. Hooker if lie knew where the
Kwps were, and he slid 'no, and I would
not till you if I did." Col. Hulwell, strok
ing his beard with his right hand, looked
straight at the sheriff and said, "Hooker
siid lie didn't know, and would not tell
jou if he did' Hooker slid lint, did he?
Well, if he did
