R C Sutton Returns
With Bride From
San Rafael
(From Saturday's Daily;
Quite an agreeable surprise was
occasioned yesterday among the many
friends in the city of F. C. Sutton,
-when he alighted from the train,
accompanied by a bride. The event
took place at San Rafael, Cal., a few
days ago, and an interesting feature
of this hymenal occasion was that
his most intimate friends were un
aware of the purposes of his mission
until he returned to this city.
His bride is a charming young
woman, and a social favorite in her
home city. Mr. Sutton for some
time has been the fireman on the
yard engine of the S. F., P. & P. in
Prescott, He is very popular and
with his bride has received many
congratulations. They were extended
a pretty serenade last night at their
rooms in the Head House, the par
lors being thronged with many who
came to wish them a happy and pros
perous future.
(iFrom Thursday's Daily.)
According to .a statement made
yesterday by Deputy Assessor E. W.
Stephens, frost during the early part
of this month performed some of
its characteristic freaks in the Verde
Valley, destroying crops in one sec
tion and in close proximity permit
ting others to escape. As a result
one-half of the fruit is killed and
the yield this year .will be far below
that of last. Some of the unusual
conditions witnessed were as fol
lows: At the farm of Charles Coulson,
every bud in his orchard was nip
ped and the loss will be complete.
His neighbor, Ed. Cook, less than
half a mile away, was more for
Tinate, and every tree will bear its
In the Upper Vorde, at the or
chard of "William Jordan, the frost
passed over, but when the large in
terests of the Verde Fruit company
were reached, the destruction was
disastrous, and but a very small
yield will be had.
The big Haskell orchard also
escaped, and this year will have its
largest output.
On the Lower Verde about one
half of the fruit is saved, while along
Beaver Creek, Oak Creek and other
outlying sections, heavy damage re
sulted. One loss to be regretted is
that of Henry Schuerman, on Upper
Oak Creek, who will have practic
ally nothing to place on the mar
Vet. Another heavy loser is Henry
Ames, in he same section. Clear
"Creek appeared to be out of the
zone, and but a very slight loss
will be recorded. Since the destruc
tion of their orchards, the owners
will endeavor to recoup losses sus
tained by devoting their time to
Mr. Stephens states that he found
prosperous conditions everywhere in
that section. More land is under
cultivation than in previous years,
and the flow of water into the many
canals is maintained at its custom
ary measurement. All residents are
thrifty and the big granary 0f the
county never appeared to such good
advantage as this year.
Another favorable indication of
the country was shown in no beef
cattle being for sale on the ad
joining ranges, the supply being cull
ed to its limit, with a heavy demand
for more animals.
The ne wterritorial bridge is being
used and its splendid construction is
the pride of the community.
GALENA, 111., April 27. -In ac
cordance with a custom established
many years ago this city today paid
tribute to the memory of its illus
trious son, Gen. U. S. Grant, on the
occasion of the eighty-ninth anni
versary of his birth. Large dele
gations of visitors from surrounding
towns attended the exercises in Grant
Park where stands the fine monu
ment to the warrior, presented by
H. H. Kohlsaat of Chicago twenty
years ago. The oration of the day
was delivered by Bishop J. H. Vin
cent of New York.
Threaten to Supplant
Orange Flowers With
May Brides
SPOKANE, Wash., April 2', Fra
grant apple blossoms will supplant
the time honored orange flowers as
wreaths for May brides, if the plan
worked out by Samuel Glasgow, sec
retary and manager of the Centen
nial Mill company of Spokane, meets
with as much favor in the apple
districts of the United States as it
has in this city. He contends that,
as the apple blossom is the national
flower and marriage is woman's" most
important step in life, the two
should go together.
"I have discussed the question
with the Spokane Chamber of Com
merce and the Spokane Horticultural
Association," said Mr. Glasgow,
"and through them we are in hopes
of interesting every community in
the Western country and the apple
districts east of the Rocky Mountains
in the movement. The commissioners
of the city and county of Spokane
are enthusiastic over the plan. Rev.
Dr. Will A .Betts, pastor of the First
Methodist Episcopal church, says he
will perform the ceremony, free of
charge, for the first bride decked
with apple blossoms appearing at
either his parsonage or church.
"I have also interested the own
ers of commercial apple orchards in
the Spokane valley and other parts
of this country in the movement and
expect to announce a substantial
prize in a short time for a photo
graph of the best house or church
wedding decorations fashioned with
apple blossoms. Personally, I will
present a purse of gold to the bride
winning the first prize. This com
petition is free and open to every
woman in the United States and
"There is likely to be some op
position from the orange growers,
who may feel that they have a mon
opoly on the wedding wreath flower,
but I do not believe it will be very
serious, as the life of the apple
blossom season is not more than
thirty days in the spring, after
which orange blossoms may be worn
by bride and bridegroom."
PHOENIX, Ariz., April 2G. The
case of the United States against
Grant Bros, will again come before
the Supreme Court of the Territory
on May 3, when a motion for a
new trial which has been made by
attorney for Grant Bros, will be
argued. United States Attorney 'J.
E. Morrison, who is at Tucson at
tending Federal Court, will go to
The government instituted proceed
ings against Grant Bros., a Los An
geles contracting firm, for violation
of federal laws relating to the im
portation of alien labor, and the court
of the first instance awarded the
government damages in the sum of
$45,000. The case was appealed to
the Supreme Court of the Territory
and the lower court's award was af
firmed. The defendant then made a
motion for a new trial, which will
be argued May 3. In case the mo
tion is denied it is likely that an
appeal will bo taken to the United
States Supreme Court.
WINONA, Minn., April 27. The
intellect and the power of the Meth
odist Episcopal church arc concen
trated in Winona today. For the
past twenty-four hours every train
has brought its quota of the fathers
of the church to this city to attend
the annual meeting of the college of
bishops. The regular business of the
conference was taken up in earnest
this morning and will continue with
daily sessions until next Monday.
Bishop Henry W. Warren of Den
ver, the senior bishop of the church,
is presiding over the business ses
sions, which will be interspersed
during the four days with impressive
religious services and several func
tions of a social nature.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., April 2S.
The Santa Fe railroad has been try
ing out the Western Engineering
company's differential axle, and re
ports that a car" equipped with them
has been run 130,760 miles on its
San Bernardino Valley Traction line
with perfectly satisfactory results.
During all the time no attention was
paid to the axles, as they are self
lubricating. One of the electric lines
in Hawaii is fully equipped with the
axle, and the cars of the Angels'
Flight in this city have recently been
fitted with the invention.
The purpose of this, axle is to les
sen the flange friction with the ac
companying wear and tear on tracks
and wheels, and the increased trac
tion power required in -consequence,
an obect sought by railroad men and
inventors for years. Solid axles are
now used, the two wheels so attach
ed that they both turn with it at
equal speed, or one must slide while
the other turns on a curve. That is
why they grind and shriek so loudly
rounding the curves of the city
The differential axle Is really two
axles, one for each wheel; the ends
of these are set into a strong box
coupler, so that one turns independ
ently of the other. By this means
there is no curve friction and grind
ing and the efficiency of the motive
power is largely increased.
(From Thursday's Daily.)
Reports in circulation during the
past few days of a strike of rich
gold ore being made on the proper
ties of the Pick and Drill Mining
company, near Humboldt, were con
firmed yesterday by E. W. Stephens,
deputy assessor, who was at the camjj
and personally investigated the zone
where the best showing ever made
in the development is in evidence.
Mr. Stephens states that he went
down the main working shaft to the
COO foot level, after a round of
shots had been fired. Before the
muck was cleared away he picked
from a two .foot vein a sample OT
the ore exposed. Returning to the
surface he made a horn spoon test
and was surprised to see the amount
of gold in the pan. He also exam
ined other points underground with
similar showings.
The plant had completed a five
days' test run on ores, and it was
estimated that from $300 to $700 was
on the plates. The mill is of six
stamps, equipped with a new prin
ciple on concentrating, which gives
good results. The camp is reported
as one of the most thrifty in that
country, and a force of twenty min
ers is employed. The property is be
ing practically operated ,and there
is every indication of it proving a

(From Saturday'? Daily)
According to a telegram received
vesterdav from Mrs. Ben. II. Yeager
at Phoenix, it is probable that her
husband will recover from the ser
ious iniuries' he received about
month ago at Morristown, when fte
horse he was riding ten ana crusnea
him. Mrs. Yeager states that an
operation had been performed for an
abscess in his side, which resulted
from the accident, and from which
he was experiencing the most intense
suffering. The attending physicians
stated that the operation would not
only relieve Mr. Yeager of the agony
he had been undergoing for several
weeks, but that in all probability
his life would be saved.
Mr. Yeager has been passing
through a critical condition for sev
eral days, and until the operation it
was not believed he would survive.
The receipt of this encouraging news
is welcomed by his many friends in
this city and elsewhere.
WESTON, Ohio, April 27. A hand
ful of Civil War veterans who wire
among the survivors of the Sultana
disaster, gathered here today in an
nual reunion. It was forty-six years

Louis, loaded with Union soldiers re
turning home after being paroled
from Confederate prisons, was de
stroyed soon after leaving Memphis
by the explosion of her boilers. Of
the 2,200 persons on board only
about 300 were saved.
