Mr. and Mrs. Frank Cooper, of the Warm Springs, celebrated the 25th anniversary of their wedding last Monday, the married folks of this place being there in almost full force, and enjoyed the hospitalities of the occasion. The silver wedding cere mony was performed by Judge T. S. Hart. Everybody was enter tained and feasted in first-class style, and had a sociable, enjoyable time. In the evening a dance was given by Mr. and Mrs. Cooper, free for all, young and old. The dance was opened by the married folks, who took possession of the hall in full force, and boed down a quadrille in a lively manner, that indicated they felt "just as young as they used to be." The dance was largely attended, and continued until 4 p. m. The dance was free, the participants not being called upon to pay for either hall, supper or music. The sapper was a fine one, such a one as Mrs. Cooper always provides on such occasions. The hall was artistically decorated with evergreens, the hand iwork of Charley Huntley.

Blackfoot, July 21, 2:30—Frank Williams was hung in the jail yard at 2:12 p. m. His neck was broken by the fall, and he died without a struggle. He made a rather short and incoherant speech, re-affirming his former statements in regard to the murder. He came under the gallows smok ing a cigar, calm and self-possessed, and asked to put the noose on his own neck. He said he would rather die than be imprisoned for life, and said that he had no ill feeling toward anyone. His last words were, "Let her go." He was cut down at 2:57. HIS CRIME. The crime for which he paid the last penalty to-day, was one of the most shocking and revolting which has ever occurred in the Territory. It occurred in December, 1880, on Snake river, twenty-five miles below the mining camp of Caribou. Two prospectors, Capt. Wina and Charles Reed were murdered in their lonely cabin. Reed was shot in the head with a 50-calibre needle gun, and Winn's head was split open with an ax. Williams acknowledged the crime, but claimed that he did it in self-defense. His story of the killing, however, did not agree with the situ ation of the wounds on Reed's head, and he was convicted of murder in the first degree at the May, 1887, term of the District Court and sen tenced to be hanged July 22, 1887. An appeal was taken to the Supreme Court of the Territory, where the findings of the lower court were con firmed. He was re-sentenced last June by Judge Broderick. He made an escape from the jail with Ficker son and Harrington, the Teton horse thieves, in July, 1887, but they were all recaptured after a three-days' en joyment of liberty. He again es caped a few weeks ago, just a year and a week from his first escape — but was recaptured almost immedi ately. Woods, the Pocatello mur derer, who assisted him in the last break, is still at large. SKETCH OF HIS LIFE. Frank Williams was born in South Portsmouth, Rhode Island. He is 28 years old and bis true name is William L. Reynold's. He does not know where his parents reside now, but when last heard from they were there. His life has been a checkered one. He was a sailor for three years. He has worked as a railroader, canal man, cowboy, and a common farm hand. He joined the regular army in 1882 and served in the 7th infantry for two years, finally deserting at Fort Laramie, Wyoming. He then returned to Boston and from thence made his way west, again joining the army in 1880 at Fort Douglas, Utah. He served in Co. H., 6th Infantry, j from which he again deserted and : came into Idaho. He became a chum of that notorious western bandit aud horse thief, Yellowstone Jack, and together they stole a band of horses near Camas and ran them into Mon tana. In Montana the two men fell out and, after a bloodless quarrel, separated. Williams returned to Idaho and worked for a month for the Potter Cattle company as a cow boy and then went over into the Cariboo country, where his awful and culminating crime was committed. Statesman: Charles Packenham arrived in Boise City from Piue Grove, where he has been prospect ing a little for about two months. He savs that Pine Grove is flourishing. There are twenty houses in the place, three saloons, two grocery stores, one confectionery store, one bakery and restaurant, one blacksmith shop, one hotel and three white laundries. As saver Owen has assayed considerable ore there and it ranged ull the way from $5 to $4,000 per ton. The new twenty-stamp mill started up last Monday. Charley has located two placer claims there that promise well. Charley Magkk brought in three bars of Banner bullion yesterday, weighing 245 pounds. 7 nis makes twelve bars turned out by the Ban ner mill this summer. R. J. Adcock, agent for the San Francisco Examiner, made a call on the World yesterday. He went 1 across the Basin yesterday afternoon. 9ARBIED.

Kingsley, of this place. The ceremony was witnessed by a large number of friends of this place. At 8 o'clock the strains of a wedding march, executed on the piano by Mrs. F. F. Church, announced the com ing of the bridal party. The cere mony was performed on the porch of Mr. Kingsley's residence, where the guests were seated. The couple, during the ceremony, stood under a very beautiful floral bell, made by Misses Lida Stahl and Hattie Par sons. After the happy couple were pronounced husband and wife, con gratulations were extended, and then all indulged in feasting and merry making until between 10 and 11 o'clock. The bride has been a resident of this place from childhood, acquired a good common school education here, and afterwards attended the Albion, Michigan, College several years. She is an accomplished and estima ble young lady, and has a large cir cle of friends throughout the county who wish her and her husband hap piness and prosperity along their journey together through life. Mr. Abernethy is a scholarly young man, and is at present a professor in s school at Iron Mountain, Michigan The couple will depart on the Gth of August for their home at that place.

The Honse of Representatives has voted on the wool and lead clauses of the Mills bill, placing wool on the free list and reducing the tariff on lead, in the interest of foreign pro ducers. Democratic charity is far reaehing. It is not the kind that be gins at home. Their policy is un American. It is not the good old doctrine of "America for Americans," but American markets for foreign countries. They would tear down and destroy the industries of America to benefit foreign producers. Their policy is not absolute free trade, but is a long stride in that direction. It is absolute in many respects. If this blighting policy of the Democracy is once thrust upon the country, and its withering effects felt for awhile, by a little curtailing and paraphrasing that party will gain the sobriqnet of " the terrified demon-ocracy," and will be gently and tenderly laid in its little bed when it succumbs to the inevit able. The vote in the House stood 120 to 102, being a strictly party vote. Silver City, in Owyhee county, had a jollification meeting Tuesday to celebrate the completion of tele graph and telephone lines to that place—one from Boise City and the other from Caldwell. A big bonfire was built on the crest of old War Eagle mountain, and the citizens of the capital made arrangements to the distance to the summit north of Boise is ten miles. The distance from one light to the other is seventy miles on an air line. a few days, for want of ore. New levels have to be opened in the Ban ner and Wolverine mines. The four of Tue Banner mill will shut down in | hundred level of the Banner has j yielded a great amount of ore, but is ! now exhausted. If the rule that bas ; held good thus far, that the mine im ■ proves in richness as depth is attained, I the next level will turn our a higher j Rrade of 0 re than any of the levels I above. The new hoisting works for j the Wolverine will be up in about six weeks. The company will also j sink on the Panamint, the mine they bought last fall from Jas. Irwin. Some very brave, manly and cour ageous thing, name unknown, knocked a Chinaman down Vt ednesday night, in front of the District Attorney's office, and then gave him a severe kick in the side. Hon. R. H. Robb and Postmaster Silsby came out of the postoffice, and hearing the Chi naman groaning, went up to where he was lying. The Chinaman was unable to get up. They assisted him to ins feet, and he managed to hobble off. He does not know the man who assaulted him, nor his reasons for the brutal attack. H. H. Hawkins is circulating a pe tition for the continuance of the mail route from Placerville to Horseshoe Bend. The Postoffice Department has given notice that said route would be discontinued Aug 1st. This ac tion on the part of the department would briug forth great indignation and much uncomplimentary language from a large section of country that would be greatly inconvenienced by such discontinuance. Everybody should put his name to this petition. Tue Chinese had their annual cel ebration yesterday evening, which they say is "alle same Melican man s Fourth J uly." It consists of a pro cession headed by a conglomeration of squawling, squeaking, and rattle tybang music, and fireworks in the evening. Mrs. Jess Bradford and daughter, Carrie, and Misses Anna Carrigan and Lizzie Magee went out to Gra ham last Wednesday. Thgs. Clark, of Centerville, was tried again yesterday in the Probate Court on a complaint sworn out by John Gorman, charging him with misdemeanor in driving Chinamen off of placer ground, by violence. The ground is claimed by Clark, and also by Gorman and others, who leased the ground to the Chinamen. In the first trial the jury disagreed, standing four for acquittal and two voting guilty. The jury yesterday voted not guilty. A twelve-foot scantling, falling from a thirty-foot flume, last Tues day, at Centerville, struck Thomas Curry on the shoulder, and cut an ugly gash over one eye. No bones were broken, but the shoulder was badly bruised. Hon. R. H. Robb, of Horseshoe Bend, arrived here Wednesday and swore out a warrant against young Webster, who assaulted him with a hoe and stones. Wm. Brown and Chas. Alexander, son of George Alexander, were in town the other day, from Middle Boise river, after supplies. See ad. of W. H. Parker, watch maker and jeweler. His shop is the first door above the Miners' Brew Woods, the negro murderer, who escaped from the Blackfoot jail, was captured at Bozeman, Montana. Hon. Steve Dempst, of Center ville, and H. H. Hawkins, of Shafer creek, were in town yesterday. Cuas. Balbach, one of the owners of the Washington, started on bis re turn to Omaha last Wednesday. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Kingsley and Miss Barker started for Boise City yesterday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Abe Beard, of Gar den valley, were in town this week. At Graham, July 21, 1888, at 1:30 p. m., of pneumonii, Juan G. Robbins. Deceased was born in Bratford, Vermont, in 1845^ and would have been 43 rears of age the 28th of this month. He went to California when seven years of age. He joined the army as a volunteer at the breaking out of the rebellion, and served to the close or near the close of the war. From California he went to Silver City where he worked for several years in the mines, and was married at that place to Miss Anna Leigh. Mr. Robbins and family moved to this place in 1876, and have resided in this county' ever since, Mr. Rob being constantly engaged in mining. He was for sometime fore bins man of the Banner mine, and had the reputation of being the best quartz miner in the county. He has been a correspondent of the W orld for a great many years, writing under the nom de plumes of "Ola," "Snibbor," "Snowbound" "Juan," etc., and was onr best mining correspondent. He was a member of the A. O. U. W., a life insurance order. His policy calls for $2,000, which will prove quite a help to the family. He leaves wife and five children, three boys and two girls, the oldest, a son. aged about thirteen, and the youngest, a daughter, six or seven years of age. His father is a resident of California, but whether he has any other relatives living we do not know. Mr. Robbins was one of the best citizens of the county, a thorough rustler, and a skilled workman in many lines, and a model husband and father, kind and affectionate. His loss is a sad, severe blow to the family, bis wife being an invalil, and unable to pro vide for the family. But they have the consolotion of knowing that they are among warm-hearted friends who will extend to them the helping hand of charity. The funeral took place at Gra ham at 2 o'clock on the 22d. A friend at Graham writes that "he had no pain up to his death He wouldn't give up. Ten min utes before his death he got up out of bed, and said he would not die, and could not." He struggled against death, for the sake of his family, their welfare being the uppermost thought of his mind, and the only pain he had was that occasioned by contemplating the loss the family would sustain should he be called away from earth. . 1.
