William McCue Cuts His Own
Throat With a Large
Pocket Knife.
Had Been Drinking and Was Thought
to Be Temporarily Insane Will
Probably Recover.
About 12 o'clock last uigbt a mu
giving his name as V. leOM came
into the waiting room of the Clitf
lodging house and engaged a room,
and after sitting fur some time as if
in doubt what to do finally said he
would go to bed. He started up stairs
several times but would hesitate and
start back. He finally went into his
room and in about three minutes an
other man who . . ,vupying a bed
in the same room came to the stairs
and said the fellow had just attempted
An officer was sent for and the man
was found lying on the floor with his
throat badly cut and a large pocket
knife by his side with which he had
done the deed. The blade had missed
the artery but had cut the wind pipe
nearly in two. He was conscious and
told the men that he wanted all his
things given to Frank Kyan, who is I
now at the county hospital.
A hack was called and he was taken
to the court house where a doctor ;
dressed the wound and he was re
moved to the county hospital, where
he is resting as wel! as possible and
will likely recover.
He had been drinking very hard for
several days and acted like he was
mentally unbalanced. It is said he
made an attack on the nurse at the
hospital and acted like he wanted to
kill him. He is a miner, apparently
about 40 years of age. Nothing is
known of his people or where his
former home was.
Attendance and a Lively
The Scrub Team Wins.
The first ball game of the season was
played at the ball grounds yesterday
and a large crowd was iu attendance.
The boys were all fresh at the game
this year but a rattling good game
was put up till the sixth inning when
the boys were all so tired that the
game went all to pieces and the score
ran up like the mercury in a Pbenix
thermometer. Up to the sixth inning ,
the score was three to five and during ,
the next three innings it ran up to i
fifteen to eighteen iu favor of the j
"scrub" nine that had been gathered
up , B.e iue oojs a practice game. ,
Another game will be played next j
Sunday aud the boys hope by that
time to be able to provide benches for 1
the lady spectators at least.
The line up of the two teams was as
follows :
Regular nine Tabor, catcher; Litt
ler, pitcher; Freeman, first base:
Monnette, second base: Miller, third
base: Martin, short stop: Everts,
right : Johnson, center, aud Herndon
left field.
Scrub nine Flammer, catcher:
Brown, pitcher: Smith, first: Mans
field, second and Hartiu. third base:
Pulliam. short stop; Cotton, right;
Coon, center, aud Hallerau, left field.
When Mabel squeezes in a waist
That buttons down the back.
And then cries out in pleading tones:
"Come here and help me. Jack."
1 sigh for those delicious days
Those days when 1 was free.
And Mabel never pleaded to
Be buttoued up by me.
Ah. what a privilege would 1
Have deemed it then to hear
Her cry: "Come please aud help me
These dreadful buttons, dear!"
How gladly would 1 then have gone
And given her a smack
For each delightful button
The row upon her back.
But things, some how, don't thrill
me now
As once they might have thrilled;
And oh. the waists that Mabel wears
Are alway amply filled!
My temper's warped, my thumbs are
My fingers ache, alack !
Confound these awkward. foolish
That button down the back !
R. H. Jack and son who went to the
former's ranch on Oak creek last week
had a narrow escape from cremation
on Saturday morning about 2 o'clock.
Mr. Jack was awakened at that hour
to find the house a mass of Maine and
smoke and he larely had time to
awaken his son. and for both of them
to escape through a window. A delay
of but a few minutes would have
meant the death of them both. The
five room house together with all of
its contents was burned. the loss leiug
about 81200, with insurance. Mr.
Jack had hidden 850 in currency iu a
mattress of the bed before going to
led and this was also burned. The
orieiu of the fin- is mystery and it
can only lie accounted for as an act of
iucendarism although no reason i.
kuowu why any one should want to do
such a dastardly deed.
Mr. Jack had taken their little pet
dog with them to the r:uch and to
this little dog he says he aud In- MM
owe their lives, as the dog barked
and tore at the lied clothes until it
woke him up. The fire bad euveloied
the room where they were sleeping
until Mr. Jack had to kick the win
dow out for them to make their es
cape. After they were out they dis
covered that the faithful du' had not
been rescued and Mr. Jack rushed
back into the burning room and got
the dog which was pretty badly scorch

his being mistaken iu the matter.

Those Failing to Pay Their Bills
Twentieth Will Have Water
Shut Off.
City Tax Collector and Assessor
Frank Williams has decided to have
his office in the city hall instead of
in the Wilson building as was an
i nounced a few davs aeo. There has
ter consumers that he will be at his
office every day up to the 20th of each
month, and all water bills must be
Iid there as provided by the city or
dinances, or the water will be shut off
and a fee of 83 will be charged and
collected before the water will be
turned on again. Mr. Williams says
he is not going to play any favorites
in the water matter but will carry out
the instructions of the city council to
the letter, and water users may save
themselves considerable trouble and
expense to bear this in mind.
Mr. Williams will be at his office on
the above dates between the hours of
9 a. m. and 1 p. m.
The expense in maintaining the wa-
ter system is a terrible burden on the
ci'y at best, and when a large number
of consumers refuse to pay their bills
when they are due it only increases
the Imron mm th " aA fK
have decided the bills must be
promptly met or thev will reduce the
consumption of water by a few thou
sand gallons. When the new council
took their seats they found between
MOO and 84000 due from water users
while the city was paying interest on
84000 which had to be borrowed for :
the purpose of paying the expenses of
operations and maintaining the water '
system. They decided to do all in I
their power to stop this evil and put
the system as near on a self sustaining
basis as possible
What Mrs. Munds Has to Say About
the Challenges at Saturday's
In an article in the Herald issued
last Saturday I am charged by D. D.
McDonald with challenging the votes
cast for Mr. Baebr for school trustee
while I let the votes cast for me pass.
1 wish to say that 1 was there to pre
vent as far as possible all illegal vot
ing. 1 had reason to know that the
people who were supporting me were
respectable, qualified voters. My
friends aud 1 had solicited no other
kind of votes, and if anyone voted for
me who was not qualified it was done
with innocent intent and because they
were unacquainted with the law. 1
can testify that in no case was the
oath taken by anyone challenged by
Mr. Dillon unless the voter was quali
fied. This is not true of a number of
i the votes challenged by me. One of
the first votes I challenged was that
j of a gambler who frankly admitted
', that his only qualification lay iu the
fact that he had paid a gambling li
cense. He was reluctant to take the
oath and appealed to the judges to
i know if he were qualified. Mr. Crock
I er said : "I am of the opinion that
haviug paid a gambling license would
qualify you under the law." Upon
hearing this the gambler took the
oath, and his vote was accepted. 1
challenged one voter who admitted
that he was not qualified until asked
rather insistently by Mr. Ling if he
were not the guardian of his little
niece whose mother is living, and to
all appearances supports her child.
After some parleying, the'challenged
voter said he was the child's guardian
aud his vote was accepted. A woman
voter upon being challenged admitted
that she owned no property in her
own name. Her husband insisted that
she was a tax payer because he paid
taxes and she was allowed to take the
oath and her vote was accepted. La
ter a lady offered to vote on the same
ground and she was challenged by Mr.
Dillon and her vote refused.
man offered to vote, when 1 chal
lenged him and he said that he was
not a tax payer and left the polls.
Mr. Dillon informed him that he was
a tax payer because he belonged to
the order of Elks, and in some way
which 1 did not understand that made
him a tax payer. The man then came
back aud was sworn and voted. These
are only a few of the illegal things
that were done at this election and
Mr. McDonald has nothing to say
j about tbem but arraigns me because I
did not challenge the votes of his
printers. I will say as I have said be-
j fore that I had reason to suppose that
! all ballots that were being cast for me
1 were the ballots of legal voters, and I
did not during the day challenge one
vote that 1 knew or supposed was a
legal oue. I saw a number of ladies
turned awav aud not allowed to vote

Dillon. Some of these ladies believed
themselves voters because their hus
liauds jiaid taxes, others had children
of kindergarten age and believed
they were entitled to vote. In no
case did 1 ask one of these ladies to
take the oath, but advised them not
to do so.
Mr. McDonald says if the women
were enfranchised they would be
"just exactly like the men." and I 1
judge that be thinks this the worst
thing that could liefall them.
In conclusion 1 will say that I en
tered last Saturday's contest because!
1 was fighting for a principle and the
object 1 had in view was accomplish
ed and I am perfectly satisfied over
the result. Mrs. John L. Munds.

A plant for their manufacture of a

The Monday Club Discusses Village
Improvements at Its Session
Yesterday Afternoon.
Able Addresses By Mayor Burke
T. G. Norrls Delivered on
the Subject.
It seems to be a hobby of the met
ropolitan press, or at least a portion
of it to speak slightingly of women's
clubs and to ridicule their actions
particularly their efforts along liter
ary lines. The Journal-Miner is not
informed as to the work of Women's
clubs in other cities, but has kept it
self as well as the public posted in re
gard to the work of the local club.
While they have delved successfully
into literary pursuits, with benefit
aud improvement to themselves, they
have done a great deal along practical
lines as well. It was .through their
efforts that the public library enter
prise was started, through their efforts
the walls of the public school build
ings have been ornamented with pic
tures and other equally practical ob
jects have been fostered by the club.
The subject of yesterday's meeting
of the club was "Village Improve
ments," than which certainly no more
practical one could be considered.
Mrs. W. C. Campbell and Mrs. J. E.
Barkley were leaders of the day and
on account of the : absence of Mrs.
Campbell, a paper prepared by her on
the subject was read by Mrs. Barkley.
As leader of the day Mrs. Barkley
had extended an invitation to T. G.
Norris and Mayor Burke to address
the club on the subject under discus
sion. Mr. Morris responded by ap-
l pearing in person and delivering a
very interesting talk, in which he
paid his respects in anything but
terms of approval, of some of the im
provements which have been made in
Prescott. The subject of his address
was "What Can the School Trustee
Do for Village Improvement."
Mayor Burke was unable to attend
in person and sent a paper on the sub
ject which was read by Mrs. J. C.
PA vote of thanks was tendered to
Mayor Burke and T. G. Norris for the
interest shown in the meeting. Mrs.
T. W. Otis also read a paper on the
subject under discussion. Mrs. Clay
pool made a plea for improvements in
cemeteries. Mrs. Billinghurat, presi
dent of the club, also spoke strongly
iu favor of improvements generally.
Mrs. H. M. Peabody, a visiting
lady, who has had considerable exper
ience among the Navajoes spoke of
her work among them.
The musical programme of theafter
uoon consisted of a vocal solo, Winter
Lulaby, De Koven, by Mrs. D. M. F.
Weeks. Piano solo, Gounod's Faust,
ly .Miss Bretherton.
Mrs. C H. B. Carter gave a reading
"Woodmen Spare That Tree."
Telegraphic Sparks.
London, March 25. Irish Secretary
Wviidham introduced the government's
long anticipated Irish land bill in the

by the crowded house this morning.

180,000,000 for carriyng out its pur
pose. It provides that tenants shall pay
three and one fourth per cent interest
on loans from the government, that
untenanted farms and grazing lands
