On January 1H he attempted to commit suicide, by shooting himself in the left lung, the bullet penetrating the heart. He was removed from his residence to the city hospital, and was rapidly bleed ing to death. The flow of blood was checked by the hospital staff, and the remarkable surgicaloperatiou of sew iug up a humau heart was undertaken by Dr. Rassieur. To do this, the physician was ob liged to cut away a section of the affeoted ribs, and also to cut through the lung, raising it up to reach the Irieardium. The bullet hole found there was enlarged two inches, with a pair of silver scissors, and the surgeon inserted his fingers in the aperture tawM made, drawing the heart to the front wall of the pericardium. With the delicate organ held in the palm of his haud. he proceeded deftly to sew up the gaping hole. The stitches were taken, the blood spurt ing out afresh at each prick of the needle. In a short time the sutures were made, and the throbbing mem ler put back into its normal position. The wound in the heart was one and a half inches long, one-half inch wide, and three-eights of an inch deep. The otierat ion gave the atieut lit tle pain. and. contrary to the general expectations of surgeons throughout the city, proved beneficial from the outset, as the youth improved stead ily, and his recovery is nowlconsider ed complete. SPECIAL SESSION City Council Holds a Special Ses sion Yesterday Afternoon and Transacts Important Business. A Resolution Passed Calling For a Special Election on Proposition of Bond Issue to Extend Water System. Pursuant to jourument the special session chambers at the Monday night's ad eity council met in in the city council city hall yesterday A VALUABLE INVITATION. Pasadeua. California, has sent an invitation to President Roosevelt to visit that city which is the most un ique as well as the most valuable ever received by him. It was gold and its exact value is not known. The invitation is a key of solid gold, and around the stem of the key is a splendidly engraved crown. The kev is emblematic of that city and the crown is emblematic of city' t0 bld executive a8100 aml come to an understanding on the mat ter as soon as injssible. afternoon at 3 o'clock, a full lniard being present. The first matter that was taken up was a resolution favor ing the passage of the council bill in the legislature to establish a manual training school iu Prescott. Mr. Norris addressed the council on the resolution, explaining that the bill carried with it an immediate appro priation of 10,000 to le expended in fitting up and equipping what is now the high school building iu Prescott. so that the new school could beopen ed at the legiuiiiug of the school vear next fall. It would also carry an ap propriation of about $8000 per year to maintain the school. He stated that the bill had leen reKirted from the committee and recommended to pass, and urged the city council to pass the resolution favoring the measure. un motion the mayor was unanim ously directed to forward such a reso lution at once to the legislature. Regarding the disputed matter of city attorney Mr. Norris said on his own behalf that he did not want to be a bone of contention over which the council and mayor should waste valuable time in fighting and asked the council and mayor, in the name of harmony and for the good of the LEGISLATIVE DOINGS. The Cowan bill providing for the diversion of the fees of the office of the secretary of the territory arising from the recording and .filing of ar ticles of incorporations, to jthe terri torial treasury was brought up in the house yesterday afternoon, and a hot fight ensued over it. While the bill was not passed a vote showingthe re spective strength of the opposing sides was taken on a motion, showing fifteen to favor the passage of the bill and nine opposing it. Those voting favorably to its passage were: Bernard, Collins. Cowan. .Gonzalez. Henry, Howell. Marlar. O'Connell. Page, Parr. Roemer. St. Charles. Webb. Williams. Woolf. tthe speak er 15. Those opposed to its passage are Barrow, Hem Henry. Ingalls. Morri son. Lamont. Rowe. Schilling, White side it. Rowe tried to amend it mak ing it inoperative during the terra of the present incumbent, but failed. Whiteside tried to amend doubling the fees giving the secretary one half and the territory one half. This also failed. The bill was finally sent to the enrolling and engrossing commit tee. The council did not transact any business. The mine inspector bill hat- been defeated in the house by a vote of fourteen to nine thus splintering an other plank of the democcratic plat form and thus fulfilling the predic tion made last fall by the Journal -Miner. The house passed a bill pro viding for the improvement of the agricultural stations, and for the holding of farmers' institutes. It provides for a bond issue of 11. 000 of which ?M00 is to be spent on the station and $2700 the institute. Fif teen votes were cast iu favor of it and seven against it. The manual training shcool for Prescott was also passed in the house by a vote of fifteen to seven. St. Charles and Parr both bitterly sjpfMM ed the passage of this bill. Another bill of similar import providing for a school on similar lines in (iraham county wa6 also up for consideration, when St. Charles opposed it a- bit terly as he did the other swM iiiakiiic charges against Webb, to latter replied, passing the lie up to St. Charles. Apologies followed later. The bill was passed by a vote of 14 to 8. Among the new bills introduced wa an incipient prohibition bill by Rowe. prohibiting the sab- of liquors near public work: and railroad camps. O'Connell introduced a bill limiting the salaries of clerks of the court to ?100o pm year. A bill providing tor another com pany of territorial rangers met with defeat in the house, and the typo graphical union label bill was also consigned to legislative gravey;inl.

Short sessions contiuiie the order of the day in the council. Another bill has found its way to tin- covemor. being the one providing for an offi cial coroner. the Indian name "Crown of the Val ley." The key is four inches long and is a good representation of the mammoth keys of olden days. It is attached to a small piece of native wood that lies in the bottom of a spe cially made box. The box is of orange wood with hinges of gold. On the outside are gold trimmings at the corners with gold plate in the center inscribed as follows: "Presented to .Theodore Roosevelt, president of the United States, by resolution of the citizens of Pasa dena. Cal.. January tj, 1SXH." On the inside of the lid of the Ixix is the following inscription: "Pasadena, Greetings to the Presi dent." I Then follows the formal invitation for the visit, signed by members of the city council and members of trade organizations of the city. The president considers the invita tion one of the prettiest he has ever seen, and certainly the most beautiful and expensive he has yet received. When he saw the invitation he ex claimed "Well, by George, 'isn't that a Jim Dandy!' " Then he called his secretary and told him to make a note of the fact that Pasadeua must be in cluded iu the itinerary of the west ern trip. The Journal-Miner has leen inform ed by two thoroughly reliable men that there are several head of dead cattle lying along the creek only a short distance above the Del Rio pumping plant. This matter should be looked into by the proper authori ties at once and if such is the case the carcasses should be removed imme diately so as not to contaminate the water which is consumed by the resi dents of this city. The carcasses are on the old liaker and Campbell ranch. ami one of the men on the ranch said he had tried to haul them away but had only an old plug of a horse and could not do it. The health of this city demands that such matters should le watched closely and not allowed to remain a moment longer than can pos sibly lie avoided. Every day furnishes additional evi dence of the correctness of the Jour nal-Miuer's assertions last fall that tne democratic party was not sincere in its platform pledges. Only op promise has so far been redeemed, and that only partially, the iassage of th eight hour law.

It is a safe prediction to make that no admission bill will lie passed until after the election in 1901. A bill. has passed the lower house of the Missouri legislature providing that upon the discharge of any em ploye of any cororatiou doing busi uess in that state it is the duty of which the sueh corMration to provide such em ploye with a statement in writing set ting forth the cause that led to such discharge. Violations of the act are made punishable by a fine of not less than ySW nor more than 100.

Mr. (ilass. of the Prescott Electric company, was present and explained to the council that the com pany had greatly increased its capac ity and was now ready to furnish the city city extra lights. Also that the price to the city had been reduced so that the tweuty proposed lights would only cost the city about the same that fifteen would have cost heretofore. New lights were then ordered placed at the following places: Corner Gurley street and Weber avenue; Grove street and Weston ave nue; Summit avenue and Pleasant street; Granite and Gurley streets: Marina and Willis streets; Carletou and Pleasant streets; Pleasant and Goodwin streets; Mt. Vernon avenue and Goodwin streets; Gurley and Alarcou streets. Carlton and Marina street. Henry Stuthman appeared liefore the council in protest to the privilege which had been granted to a Mr. Nor ris by the council to run a lunch wagon on the streets. He said a large number of the merchants and business men were oppose! to it. The matter was taken under further Jadvisement. The principal business of the ses sion was then taken up. being resolu tion No. 2. calling for a apecrial elec tion iu the city for the purpose of voting on the proposition of issuing $100,000 five to fifty year five per cent bonds for the purpose of extend iug and repairing the water and sewer systems of Prescott. The resolution was read and discussed and 011 motion was referred to Attorney E. E. Ellin wood for his legal opinion as to its correct form. After a discussion of the matter of the opera house license and also of the need of having the city ordin ances printed in lok form, the coun cil adjourned till : o'clock this afternoon. propose submitting for city attorney. Mr. Wilson then asked if Mr. El liuwood would aeept the osition should he be appointed Mayor Burke: Mr. Ellinwood will accept if he is appointed. Of course, t is understood. 1 withdraw the name of Mr. Norris. At this point. Mr. Mulvcnou stated ; The committees should te apHintcd so that all appointments can be refer red to those committees. Mayor Burke: Does my appoint ment of city attorney have to be re ferred to a committee, is there no de sire upon the jiart'of the council to take action upon the appointment of city attorney? No answer. Members remain quiet. Mayor Burke: It seems strange. 1 will ask'you gentlemen if you cart to present any objections against my apjiointmeuts? Mr. Mulveuou here stated that he registered his objections with his vote. No further comments from the mem tiers. Mayor liurke: Is it right that I tin derstaud that the council will not act either one way or the other in tin matter of proceeding with the busi Uess? Still no response from the members. Mayor Burke: Gentlemen. 1 am in need of counsel, so I will proceed herewith to appoint T. G. Norris city attorney. The mayor then turning to his sten ographer dictated the following letter: "Hon. T. G. Norris. Prescott, Ariz. Dear Sir: I have the honor to re spectfully inform you that as mayor of the city of Prescott. Ariz.. I have this day appointed you city attorney. You will please report at this otlice not later than ten o'clock tomorrow morning for instructions. Very respectfully. (Signed) Dennis A. Burke. Mayor. ANOTHER MLETINi . ADDS NEW FEATURE Shumate & Raible Are Now Manu facturing Their Own Candies and Manufacturing For Local Trade. Important Feature to Be Added to Their Soda Fountain Capacity For Business Greatly Increased. The City Council Has About Cleared up the Business Which Had Accumulated. MAYOR'S ADDRESS. Wants Harmony in Council. Makes No Overtures for Conference. But The little speech delivered by May or Burke at the last meeting of the city council and the subsequent col loquy between him and members of the city council, as taken down by a stenographer taken to the meeting by him. follows: Gentlemen of the Couucil: At the last meeting of the common couucil. 1 submitted for the consider ation of the council, the names of some gentlemen that 1 asked to have appointed to offices, and the couucil. in their judgment, deemed it advis able not to confirm any of the ap pointments that 1 made. 1 certainly have the interests of the City of Prescott at heart. 1 want the assistance of the council, and fully realize that the couucil and mayor must work iu harmony and without a unit we cannot exect to handle the affairs of the city in the interests of the taxpayers. 1 had no personal mo tive or desire from a selfish standtioint when 1 submitted any of the names of the gentlemen 1 asked to have ap pointed; it is true. 1 did not consult with any of the memliers of the coun cil with reference to the appoint -meuts that 1 asked them to confirm. 1 did not intend to lie discourteous to the council and I thought that from the time I was elected to office up to the time I assumed the duties there of, that if the council had any siicces- tions to make, that 1 would lie glad and willing to listen to the expres sions of the couucil. but no sugges tions were offered. I was thrown upon my own resources and from that. 1 had the right to Udieve it to lie to the liest interests of the taxiayers of the City of Prescott that a change iu some ot the offices would lie to the best interests of the taxpayers. Insofar as the city attorney is con cerned, if in the judgment of the council, it is not advisable to select or confirm the appointment of Mr. Norris. whom 1 believe to lie a gentle man of i nt grity, honesty and ability, with the consent of the council 1 will submit another name, but 1 want to have an expression from the council as to whether yon will confirm the appointment of the gentleman I will name before you vote upon it. I want nothing but harmony, as I said be fore we cannot progress in the un- buildiuc of the city of Pre-eott with- ut harmony lietween the council and the mayor. I am ready to proceed. t this Miint Mr. Mulveiion inter rupted the mayor in his address by asking him to name the gentleman he intended submitting for appointment as city attorney. Mayor Burke: Mr. E. E. Ellin wood is the name of the gentleman I Thecity council has lieen holding daily sessions for the iast three days in order to clear up the pressing btisi ues which had accumulated for the new council to dispose of. The couu cil met yesterday afternoon at .1 o'clock to receive the opinion of At torney E. E. Ellinwood as to the form of the resolution calling for a special election for the purpose of voting on a S100.000 bond issue to re pair and extend the present water and sewere systems, which resolut ton had lieen referred to him. in the absence of a city attorney.for his legal advice. Mr. Ellinwood made a few nhaisgCUl and amendments to the resolution and ir wtis unanimously adopted a amended. Attorney H. T. Andn-u-appeared before the couucil and vig orously opposed the proposition of the city giving the property on which the high school building now stands to the territory for the purpose of establishing a manual training school. He said that there would not le over IBBOO appropriated for the purpose of putting it in good repair and remodeling it for the purposes in tended and he was not iu favor of giv ing away property worth 190,000 for such a small consideration. A few other minor matters were con sidered when the council adjourned until :l o'clock tomorrow, Friday. March 0. A PRESSING NEED. Filthy and Muddy Condition of Streets Should Have Attention. There was a slight rain storm leal night. It was not much of a rain, but the sidewalks and crossings today are in simply a horrible condition. The mud hole where a sidewalk should In between Marina street and the -alley by the Congregational church, is next to impassable ou ac count of the mud and pede-triaus take to the middle of the street there rather than take chances of getting hopelessly stuck in the mud hole where a sidewalk should be located. Every street crossing lietween Hast Prescott and the Journal Miner office is iu about the same condition as the sidewalk at the above place. Every crossing is covered with mud to a depth of several inches. The mud is adobe and sticks to the feet of pedes trians and is scattered along the side walks so that little choice is left even where there are side walks of using them or taking to the street. In a twenty years' residence iu Pres cott the writer has never seen such a condition of the streets so far as ac commodations for pedestrians are con cerned as exist at present. The city has a chain gang at work at present and it does seem that they could not be put to a better Use than to clear the street crossings of mud. and im prove the sidewalks so pedestrians could get around without Railing in mud. It is doubtful if there is another firm in the whole territory of Arizona that can show a greater percentage of growth and improvement than the firm of Shumate Kaihle. There is scarcely a mouth that there is not some improvement made iu the equip ment of the store for the lietter service of the (nitrous of the firm. The latest improvement in this line is the ad dition of a candy factory which has been added not only for his own ceu venience but a wholesale deiartment for the manufacture of candy for the local trade, iu order to put in this department it was necessary to procure the basement under his store, as the store room was already full to over flowing with goods. This basement is the full size of the store room proper being KaM feet. The front of the basement has been flttted up for the candy factory and is equipped with every convenience needed for the manufacture of those delicious chocolates, bon bous. taffies, case candies, stick candies of all kinds, etc. In the rear of the candy department is the ice cream manufacturing de partment. This part of the business has also been enlarged ami the facili ties for manufacturing all kinds of ice creams and ices has lieen greatly aug mented. A water motor has lieen at tached to the freezers and now all the ice cream man has to do is to mix up his ingredients, turn the water into the motor and iu about five minutes he has his cream all ready to serve. The capacity of the plant now is about 180 gallons of cream iu ten hours. Messrs. Shumate ,V Kaible maufac ture all their owu syrups both for the fountain and the ice creams and the greatest care is exercised that every thing shall be of the best quality. Another new feature which will soon lie in operation will be the auto matic carbonator for the soda foun tain. This has already lieen ordered and as soon as it arrives it will lie placed iu position and attached to the fountain. This apparatus will be placed in the front s!i IW window ol the store where it may be men at all times. By attachiug the tvirbouator to the city water pipe and also attach ing a current of electricity the ma chine is ready for action and will automatically keep the fountain ready for business without further atten tion. Oliver Jordan, who has beeu with the firm for the past year, will have full charge of this department as well as the manufacture of the candies and he has given ample proof of long ago that he stands at the head iu bis line of work, ami Prescott people al ways know that when they patronize Shumate A Raj hie they are going to gH the best of everything that can be produced in their Hue of business. moved from its former location, across the railroad, to its present commodious quarters in the new I.

This is evidenced by the fact that when the lauudry was iu its old location one wagon could handle all the work that the place could turn out. Now since it has lieen moved up town, new and up to date machinery installed. experCjieo ple put iu charge of the machinery, the firm has lieen comjielled to put on two more delivery wagons, making three in all. the working force has lieen more than doubled and the bus iness has increased nearly three fold. All this has lieen done in less than one year. This certainly is a striking example of what pluck audhard work will do in Prescott. KKBEKAH'S SOCIAL.

Prescott people who failed to attend last night's entertainment at the opera house missed one of the treats of their lives, and one which is not often offeriil them. While the com pany consisted of only two perform ers. Mr. Gavin Spence and Miss Flora .MacOoiiald. interest never flagged from the rise of the curtain to its drop at the close of the entertainment. The title of the entertainment given was "Twa Hours at Home." This of course is very appropriate for tne Scottish people who attend, but to the writer who c iimot claim that honor. although having a strain of Scotch blood in his veins, it was a "Twa Hours" very pleasant visit, with a collide of peerless Scotch entertain ers. If the entertainment had lieen "twa hours" longer the pleasure would have beeu just doubled. Both Mr. Spence and Miss MacDou- ald certainly know how to reach the hearts of their audience and their every number was greeted with the most enthusiastic applause. Miss MacDouald is possessed of a very sweet and well trained voice and her manners on the stage are most charming. She is grace jiersonitted in her dancing her step lieing light and elastic, and she never fails to capture an audience. Mr. Spence is also a beautiful and correct singer and his rendering of Scotch ballads elicited the most en thusiastic applause, while his recital of narratives were excellent. The only criticism of the play beard, that was not most complimen tary, and this was one of disappoint ment rather than of criticism, was the efaeeBee of the bagpipes. Mr. Sienec gave an excellent imitation of tin- pipes but it was not the genuine ar ticle. Should the couple ever return to Prescott they would certainly lie greeted with a tull house. ST.

SENIOR DEPA RTM EST. Orace Shaw. Nina Greenwood. Kuby Loy, Fagiiu. The ladies of the local lodge of Daughters of Rebekah have lieen working like lieaversfor several days making arraiigments for this song so cial which was given iu I. O. O. F. hall last evening, and as a result the social was a decided success both from a financial as well as social stand point. The only feature of the evening which was in any way a disappoint ment to the ladies was the inability of some who were ou the literary pro gram to be present and render their numbers. A very interesting program was furnished, however. The main feature of the evening's amusement was the guessing contest and this furnished no end of fun. Each jiersou in attendance was re quested to come dressed so as to rep resent some song. There were about forty persons present who were so at tired and slips were passed to the au dience to write out the names of the songs represented. Miss Clara Logan succeeded iu correctly guessing thirty-two of them and was awarded the prize for the ladies, a hudsome book entitled "Lovely Marv." The men folks were not so lucky and some of them could not have guessed "Me Giuty" if a well dressed Irishman had jumped bate a bath tub full of water, but they had lots of fun tryiug. The prize for the men was won by Master Charley Merritt. a lad about twelve years old. the prize being a book with a paradoxical title."A Complete Bach elor, " as if such a thing could pos sibly exist. Dancing was enjoyed for a couple of hours after the contest was over. The ladits realized a snug little sum of money which will lie applied to a most worthy cause, that of build ing a home for infirm and disabled Odd Fellows. The grand lodges of the L O. O. F. and Rebekahs have been working for this noble object for sime time ami now have a fund of over SSKKI iu cash for that purpose. As soon as a sufficient sum has been raised tne Home will ne limit some place in Arizona, the place not having lieeu. decided as yet. SPECIAL ELECTION Has Been Called By City Council of Prescott For the Seventh of April. At Which Time Tax Payers Will Be Asked to Vote on Bonds to Extend Water and Sewer Systems At its special meeting yesterday afternoon the city couucil decided to call the special election for the is suance of $100,000 bouds to extend the water and sewer systems, for Tuesday. April 7, when only tbe tax payers of the city will be qualified to vote. The question is a serious one and should be calmly considered by the taxpayers of Prescott lietween now and the time for the election to take place. While it is true the taxes now seem to be aliout all property owners can stand yet t he case at hand is one that needs to lie met in the light of an absolute necessity. The city has nearly doubled iu population since the present water and sewer sys tems were first installed besides the re-establishment of Fort Whipple, all of which have made such demands on the water supply that the 'present sys tem is inadequate, and tbe question which faces Prescott is can the "prop erty owners of the city afford not to meeMhis urgent need in fact abso lute necessity. The sewer out let must be moved at least a mile and a half or two miles beyond where it is or there is great danger of losing the post again, as the department of war has already asked that the out let lie extended beyond the military reserve. This expense, coupled with the fact that the pipe line must tie repaired for about eight miles where it is in very bad shape, aud the further need that an auxiliary pumping station be added to increase the daily capacity of the pumping plant so that the rap idly increasing demands for water may be met and still further the fact I that the old reservoir is in such a I deplorable condition that it will only hold about nine feet of water at best aai much of this is lost by leakage, ; while the condition of the reservoir constantly grows worse, it can readily be seen that the need for the proposed bond issue is very urgent.

A Very Enjoyable Social Event at Walker Last Night. The United Moderns lodge at Walk er gave a grand ball iu their hall at that place last night. The Imll was a grand success iu every sense of the word. There was a splendid attendance, in fact the hall could not have accom modated any more, yet everything vent off in the most .pleasant enjoy able manner. DaHti Moderns all over the country are uoted as lieing good entertainers and the Walker lodge is no exception to the rule, as their entertainments always prove to lie of a high order. The music was furnished in part by local talent assisted by Ernest Eman uel, of Prescott. who furnished the violin music.
