Cox Is Dead PHOENIX, Ariz., Dec. 12—The city council met Monday evening and took up important business. The ordinance for ' Greater Phoenix" was considered and passed, and by it the Dennis, University, Hennett-Segur and Orchard Grove additions will be brought into the city limits. They provided for an election for the people to pass on the question as to whether city bonds should be issued for a water and sew erage system. The Bark-Murray contest over the sher iff's office came up Monday morning. The case will consume several days. Each ballot is being scrutinized by attorneys on both sides and the trial therefore drags consid erably. The Campbell, Yukon and Klondike Gold Mining company has been incorporated by James L. Campbell. Mark Campbell, Frank W. Campbell and Freeman Campbell. On Saturday last Col. MeCord returned home from, his command in Alabama to spend the holidays in Phoenix. He says his soldiers are in good trim and ready for Cuba. His regiment has been attached to the first army corps, commanded by Geo. « ilson, and they will go to Cuba about January 10. Col. aMcCord expressed himself as believing that Arizona's chances for statehood at the hands of the next congress were good, as also those of New Mexico and Oklahoma. Even if Arizona would elect two Democrats for senators the other two territories would offset by electing four Republicans. It is estimated that about 100,000 head of sheep will be sheared this winter. Ivy H. Cox, a prominent citizen of this \ alley, died on Tuesday morning.

At Fresco tt PRESCOTT, Dec. 21.—The event that produces the most interest for our towns folk just at present is the approaching city election, to be held Jaunary 3d next. Act ing Mayor Andrews has announced himself asi a candidate for mayor, and B. H. Smith, R. Bachr, W. W. Ross- and Henry Brisley wish to be re-elected to the city council. They are making their fight for re-election on the issue of building a water storage res ervoir in Aspen-Potts creek, for supplying the city with water. They also want a sewer system. Opposition to these gentle men has-, however, sprung up this week. The Citizens' ticket has been put forward, with the follow ing candidates: For mayor, John W. Dougherty, and for council, E. B. GiUge, Hugo Richards, Morris Geldwater and F. G. Brecht. The latter favor t> new water system, hut by some means to be here after determined upon; alsjo tewers, street grading and other improvements. Interest in the election w intense, and politics cut no figure. Candidates for minor offices- are thick and s,tir up n little extra dust. Mayor Andrews- and the present council want to see the water scheme of the late Captain O'Neil put through. Copper operators are expecting the price to advance 1 cent with the new year. It is now 13 cents.

Gowan, the candidate on the Republican ticket for district attorney over in Graham and who was-defeated by Lieu tenant Wiley Jones, now with MeCord's territorial regiment in Alabama and about to depart for Cuba, has contested for the office. The) grounds of the contest are that Lieu tenant Jones was not eligible for flection to the office while an officer in the army. It is interesting to note in this connection that congress has decided a similar point when it allowed (ii neral Joe Wheeler to be elected to congress and still hold a com mission in the army. From Florence come.* news that Messrs. Price & Shields have tradeil their ranch known as the MeCle'llan ranch", north of the Gila river, to the Graham Bros, for their 320-acre ranch at Kenilworth.
