SATURDAY MEETING LARGE AUDIENCE GATHERS AT TUCSON TO HEAR APOSTLE OF STATE-HOOD--B. S. RODEY. NEW MEXICO DELEGATION Brings Greetings from Eastern Section of the Future State, Arizona the Great--Some Good Gospel Preached. The meeting at Tucson last Sat urday in the interest of the move ment of statehood was all that its sponsors and supporters antici pated. There were present repre sentative gentlemen from Maricopa, Cochise, Santa Cruz counties, and messages from friends to trie move ment in the more remote counties of Mohave, Apache, Gila and Yavapai. , In the evening there gathered in the opera house an audience of some 600 people by actual count who gave deep and profound at tention to speeches from Hons. B. S. Rodey, W. B. Childera and E. A. Miera of New Mexico; and Hon. C. F. Ainsworth of Maricopa county. The addresses of all the gentlemen named were, received with most hearty applause. Hon. C. I Schumacher of Tuc son, head of the Arizona Statehood Association of Pima county, pre sided, and Dr. Mark A. Rodgers was secretary. The first speaker was Mr. E. A. Miera, who for the edification and instruction of the Spanish speak ing portion of the audience, made a short and telling adtlress. in Spanish, which aroused his audi tors to the highest pitch of enthusi asm; and then the gentleman made a short and effective speech in English "just to show there are those among the native population of New Mexico who can sneak English and need not the services! of an interpreter to he understood in either language." But the most significant utterance in the speech of the gentleman was that "it is not the native, Spanish speaking population of New Mexico that the great corporations fear; but it is the American population, who know their iniquities and will stand for their correction." Touch ing upon the great bugbear of the alleged raid that would be made upon the public institutions of Arizona by the people of New Mexico, Mr. Miera pointed out the well known hostility between vari ous localities in that part of the coming state which would always prevent any such proposition. (The gentleman took exactly the same ground upon that subject heretofore taken by The Oasis). Hon. B. A. Itodey, ex delegate to Congress from New Mexico, was the next speaker. The gentleman outlined the strenuous work he had done for separate statehood for his territory through two terms in Congress, and how he had been forced to accept joint-statehood or none; and had unwillingly ac cepted jointure as the only possi ble alternative. He paid a high compliment to the University of Arizona at Tucson, which admir able institution he had visited dur ing the day, and he maintained that the people in the eastern part of the new state will feel as much pride in the University as do the people of the present territory of Arizona feel therein. He held that there would be no disposition to abolish either the University of Arizona or the University of New Mexico; but that both would be continued as parts of the great University of Arizona. Hon. C. F. Ainsworth of Phoenix, was the third to address the meet ing. Mr. Ainsworth related how he had aided in the work done last winter to head off jointure at at Washington, which was accom plished only by the failure of the house and senate to agree upon one or two minor amendments to the bill, affixed in the senate, which the house would not ac cept, and from which the senate had not time to recede before ad journment; and how he had then reached a conclusion that jointure is the only possible way for se curing statehood and had returned home to announce to his friends and neighbors his conversion to the cause. The gentleman assert ed that the principal ground for hostility to the proposition in Mari copa county arises from the loss of the capital, and stated that a proposition is now under consider ation for creation of a dual capital in the new state one at Phoenix, the other at Santa Fe as was formerly the case in both Connec ticut and Rhode Island, which he said would remove most of the hostility-in Maricopa county, lie pointed out that the real issue is that of curbing the corporations, to do which Arizona will need the help of New Mexico. Hon. W. B. Ohilders was the final speaker. The gentleman paid a high tribute to the University at Tucson, and assured his hearers that the people of what is now New Mexico will take as much pride in that institution as the people of Arizona and stand with them to foster and perpetuate it. Other speakers had been an nounced, but the hour was late, and they waived the floor, content with the good seed that had been sowed already. In the foregoing brief resume is given but a meagre outline of a part of what was said. But the force and effect of it all is that the meeting has served to emphasize the contention maintained by The Oasis that there is in Arizona a pronounced division in public opinion upon the question of jointure. Died Monday. Guadalupe Saberdra died at the Arizona hotel Monday morning and was buried Monday afternoon. She was twenty-two years old and came here from La Colorada, So nora, for medical treatment. Death was caused by catarrh of the stomach. HOTTER A SUICIDE WITH BULLET HE QUITS HIMSELF OF WORLDLY TROUBLES. Commits Rash Act at Los Angeles While Wife Is Out Driving with a Friend. Charles J. Notter, until recently office man for the Promontorio Mining Company in Nogales, com mitted euicide at Los Angeles Sun day afternoon, by shooting himself through the heart, The following story of the tragedy U taken from the Los Angeles Examiner of Mon day morning: With a ballet through his heart. Charles J. Notter ended his life's sor rows yesterday afternoon, lie shot himself at Ids home, the rear of 818 West Second street. Mrs. Notter was driving at the time with E. linker, who had come from Nogales, Ariz., about the same time she and her husband had, four weeks ago. Returning from her ride Mrs. Notter entered the flat about 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Her husband's '-dead body greeted the woman's sight." Mrs. Not ter's screams brought' Baker to the scene of the, tragedy. "Financial troubles," said Baker to Detectives Rich and llawley, "caused Notter to take Ins life." Mrs. Notter said the same. Notter was a mining man in Nogales. lie was rich. He lost his money only a few months ago. Mrs. Notter and Baker say he broot'ed.

Mrs. Notter is, pros i t rated. Baker remained with her - for a time at Mrs. Opdyke's rooms near her home, then he went home. If Notter left any note it had been taken from the room, for the oHicers said none was there when they came. Friends of Mr. Notter in Nogales, while pained to learn of his self destruction, are not greatly sur prised thereat. It was known among his friends here some time that he was brooding over financial matters and he confided to at least one man that he had thought of suicide as, a means of ending his troubles. sand. Playing tie game in sand, in which at times they sink ankle deep, was awkward work and some ridiculous tumbles resulted from the efforts of the players to move quickly. The Sonora people took the de feat good naturedly, however, and there was nothing in the capital that was not at the disposal of the visitors. To meet such people and be accorded such treatment, the Nogales boys .would enjoy visiting Hermosillo every week, e en should they meet defeat instead of victory. The game put up by Sergeant Hoover, who caught for Nogales was exceptionally good. He won the approval of all and even Mana ger Smith of the Hermosillo team, admired his work. At the eleventh hour Saturday night, professional duties prevent ed Dr. Noon from accompanying the team south, Mr. Andrews went along ns substitute and came back as proud as a crowing hen. TURNED THE TRICK. Nogales Defeats Hermosillo in Close Game on Poor Ground. Sunday afternoon at Hermosillo, the Diamond N baseball team of Nogales defeated the Hermosillo team by a score of eight to seven. The game was hotly contested throughout, the bad condition of the grounds being responsible for the high score. Had the grounds been in good condition neither side would have scored more than two or three runs. Heavy rains had made of the ball grounds a bed of mud, which j the Hermosillo fans covered with Judge Nave's Nomination; There seems to have been t peculiar developmentin the matter of the nomination of Mr. F. S. Nave of Tucson (formerly of Nogales) to be Associate Justice of the Su preme Court of Arizona. The Congressional Record, December 6th, on Page 108, shows among other nominations trarsmitted to the senate that of Mr. Nave; but upon Page 125 of the same num ber of the Record it is shown that Mr. Nave's nomination was with-' drawn by the executive on the same day. When the report in the Congres sional Record was noted at Tucson" Monday the Citizen wired to Washington for details, and re ceived a special stating that Frank .1. Heney, formerly of Tucson, who has become famous in the success ful prosecution of land fraud .eases in Oregon, and on that account stands very high with the presi dent, had laid before the executive some of the details of Mr. Nave's suit against the Chenoweths for a $2-3,000 fee in the Cerro Prieto liti gation, and the collapsed prosecu tion of Ben Heney before the U. S. Court Commissioner at Tombstone in October, which record arou-ed in the mind of the president doubts of Mr. Nave's fitness to wear the judicial ermine, and caused with drawal of the nomination. The Citizen seems to think the disposi tion thus made of the case is final. A Remarkable Coin. Doctor V. F. Chenoweth has in his possession a Mexican dollar, which was recently taken in the course of trade at the Cananea store of L. B. Fleischer, that the latter named gentleman brought over and gave to the doctor as a keepsake well worthy of holding It is the coinage of 1843, and across the face is stencilled the name and year "J. Chenoweth 1852," show that in that year the piece passed into the hands of someone of the same name, who decorated it with his sign manual and passed it along. It is somewhat remark able that after a half a century the coin should come again into the possession of a Chenoweth.
