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.
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.
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

ents, at this place, on Tuesday even
ing, July 24, 1888, by C. S. Kingsley,
father of the bride, Elmer F. Aber
nethy, of Michigan, and Miss Ella
A. 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
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

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
Silver City, in Owyhee county,

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

cession headed by a conglomeration
of squawling, squeaking, and rattle

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.

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

Mr. and Mrs. Abe Beard, of Gar

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
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.
