Mrs. McGuire, late of Los Angeles, has accepted a situation in the ladies department of the A. C store. A splendid rain fell here Tuesday night, it being the first rain of the ..season, and was greatly needed. -4, Kd. Parsons, conductor on the slag rain, met with an accident Tuesday evening which will lay him up for a few days. W, Herzberger, of the Shannon of fi ce force, is now at the hospital. where he will three weeks. probably spend two or Dr. Burtch, whose family is so journing in California, gave a pleas ant party Saturday night to his neighbors, which was greatly enjoyed by all present. The heavy rain Tuesday night washed out a culvert on the A. & N. M. R. R. between Clifton and the Summit, which delayed the passen ger train Wednesday morning. B. B. Adams, who came up from the valley last week, was con fined to his room several days with indigestion but has since improved and is now at Gold Hill rusticating and recuperating. B. B. Adams arrived last .week from Bisbee and Douglas where he spent-a few weeks writing life insur ance. He reports the southern camps as very lively. He thinks Lowell the coming town of that section. The Ladies Aid society of tbe Baptist church requests the Era to extend their thanks to the people of Cliftgn for the liberal patronage extended them two weeks ago. The tertainment netted the ladies $85. Harry F. Murray, formerly con nected with the Shánnon and New England companies of this section, is now at Cerro de Pasco, Peru, where he is holding a responsible position with a mining company. Mrs. Mur ry is now in New York, but will join her husband this fall. During a heavy electrical storm at Douglas, the new Baptist church, re cently erected at a cost of more than $8000, was struck by lightning. Fire immediately attacked the build ing, and before it could be controll ed, practically destroyed the struct ure. Douglas Dispatch. C.W. Beck recently located a couple of claims on the heights immediately east of Clifton, which will be sur veyed and laid out into town lots. Clifton is growing so fast that the town must have room in which to spread. There is also talk of laying out a new town about a mile up Chase creek. A large number of Chinamen left Clifton last week to engage in mar ket gardening near Duncan. China men as a class are noted farmers and gardeners and will do well wherever they can find soil, water and mar kets. The entire valley around Dun can should be intensely cultivated, and even then the markets of Clifton and Morenci would not be fully sup plied. The Massey lot on Copper avenue was purchased this week by Paul Becker, who will at once proceed to erect a handsome brick building thereon. J. C. Gatti, who owns the adjoining lot, will also immediately proceed with the erection of a brick building, which will materially im prove the street in that section. Copper avenue is having quite a boom this season in the way of new and substantial buildings. Ph. Freudenthal, manager of the Commercial Company at Solomon ville, spent a couple of days in Clif ton last week. He is quite enthusi astic over the prospects of the early building of the Santa Fe railroad up the valley for a connection with the main line at or near Silver City. This, he thinks, will forever settle the county qeat and county division ques tion. However, he says that if it comes to a question of division, the people of Solomonville prefer to be in the east end of the county rather than in the west end. As Solomon ville is so near the center no doubt the line could be run a few miles to the west of the town and thus secure that rich section for the eastern half, or the new county.

R. Snyder Shot and Killed by His Brother-in-Law, George Thompson. On Tuesday of last week J. R. Sny der, a prominent ranchman of the Blue River country, was shot and killed by his brother-in-law, George Thompson. On Monday last Deputy Sheriff Toll Cosper arrived in Clifton with Thompson, who was anxious for a preliminary hearing. As there were no witnesses present at the killing District attorney McAlister post poned the hearing until Monday next, in order to give the territory time to bring out all the facts in the case, xnompson's bond tor appear ance was fixed at $1000, which he was unable to give, and he will remain under the care of Deputy Sheriff Cosper until time set for his trial. Mr. Cosper states that trouble had existed between the two men for some time past over water rights, which culminated in the shooting when the two men met on the road Thursday last. Snyder was armed with a pistol and a club, both of which he had in his hands when he was shot. The pistol was not cocked, but was fully loaded, and from the fact that it was in his hand when he was killed leaves no doubt that he intended to use it. He was shot in the forehead, instead of the back of the head, as had been previously re- ported. Snyder leaves a wife, who is a sister to George Thompson, and seven sons, ranging in age from five or six to twenty 3-ears of age. After the trouble Thompson made no attempt to get out of the country, but remained at home waiting the arrival of an officer to take him in custody. He claims that the act was done in self-defense. Mr. Cosper stated that the sentiment of the com munity generally is with Thompson, though the entire community where the two families reside trreatly de plores the tragedy. Frank B. Laine left this morning via Albuquerque for Portland. He will return via his old home, San Jose, California, and will be accom panied home by Mrs. Laine, who is spending the summer there. . Col. Epes Randolph, of railroad fame, is now to the fore with the big gest gold mine on earth. It is located in the Alter district, Sonora, and Irom newspaper accounts its a hummer. It is claimed that there is now something like $15,000,000, in in sight in the property, and that no doubt at least $100,000,000 will be taken from the property. A milling plant will at once be erected. The Hollenbeck Hotel Los Angeles has recently entertained persons from Arizona: Marcus Santin, Globe; Frank R. Stewart, Prescott; Mrs. A. E Downs and family, Rev. J. A. Smith and wife, F. A. Sutter and wife, Dr. C. L. Craven and wife, E. A. Tovrea, C. L. Hall, W. A. Schwartz, Bisbee; B. Goldman, A. A. Hopkins, Douglas; P. D. Wright, Mrs. B. L. Holmes, Miss E. Lawrence, Winslow; J. E. Difton, Jno. A. Black, Tucson; R. D. Cogin, H. T. Williams, Kingman; E. A. Spalding, Phoenix. A slight accident occurred Tues day on the Coronado railroad which came near putting Superintendent -Wagstaff out of commission "for a few days, at least. Mr. Wagstaff was walking through the car when something happened to the engine and the train came to a sudden stop. Mr. Wagstaff was pitched through the window, but came through the accident with only a bruised hand and a slight contusion on the fore head. F. B. Laine was sitting in a front seat and also received quite a severe shaking up but was not hurt in the least. The Mexican residents of the Clif-ton-Morenci district are arranging for a. monster celebration to be held in ' Clifton September 10, in com memoration of the independence of Mexico. It was on September 10, 1810. that Guadaloupe Hidalgo, the George Washington of Mexico, had the bells of all the churches ring out the glad tidings of the inde pendence of Mexico A meeting will be held Sunday next when the various committees will be appointed and the final arrangements made for the celebration, which will be the first celebration of the kind held in Clifton in three years. It will be a big success. E. U. Beauchamp, of the Barrett Beauchamp company, returned this week from an extended hunting and fishing trip in the Mogollón moun tains. Owing to the fact that two of Mr. Beauchamp's valuable horses were stolen, the trip was extended considerably longer than was the in tention when the party left Clifton, but barring this incident the trip was greatly enjoyed. Mr. Beau champ sa3-s that the country is in better shape than it has been in many years. Fish and game are plentiful, and there is an abundance of feed everywhere. Mr. Beauchamp has always been quite enthusiastic over the Adams diggings, and spent some time in searching for them, but with the usual results. He has no doubt, that the famed diggings will soon be found, as Duffey Morrow, one of the most energetic pros pectors in the country, is now on a hot trail, and will be in soon with oodles of gold. Duffey, who heretofore has been one of the doubting Thomases, now has the story straight, and has a lead pipe cinch on them. Duffey will no doubt soon blossom out as the Walter Scott of the Mogollons, though he is not in clined toward breaking railroad records. You will find a full line of fruits and vegetables at Smith's. John Grimes, who has been in charge of the leaching plant of the Arizona Copper company since its erection, has resigned his position and will probably soon leave for his former home in California, where his family are now spending the summer, uwing to tne rainy season now on, Colonel Greene's placer mines in Sonora, over which there has been such a spirited word contest going On in the newspapers, have been closed down for two months The Colonel says that operations at the mines will resume as soon as the rainy season is over. Col. Ben M. Crawford, manager of the Crawford Gold Mining company, informs the Era that work is now being pushed on three levels of the mine and that two new winzes are being sunk. Development work has also been commenced on the Lefave property, recently purchased by the company. Good muling ore is being developed in all of the workings. Owing to the fact that the aerial tramway of the Standard company had to be overhauled and strength ened last month, which necessitated a suspension of ore shipments for ten days,' the shipments were not up to the usual record. ' Eight cars of ore were shipped averaging from 11.66 .to 4D.1.: per cent, copper. It is ex pected that the property will make a good showing during the month of August. The Era expects to have some news to present to its readers in regard to prospective development work in the Cliftion-Morenci district in a short time. The district is making a re markable showing this year, and as before stated, such an output of cop per Is bound to attract the attention of mining men. The district has been very quiet for the past two years but it? future is all right. Ambrose Burke, who is in charge of development work at Copper Center mines in the Coronado montains, near Metcalf, spent Saturday last in Clifton, and reports the work as pro gressing most favorably. He states that the entire tunnel is in good mil ling ore, also carrying consid erable glance. He is quite enthu siastic over the present outlook, and expects to have a large force of men at work on the property. He says the season' for mining in that section has been ideal, plenty of good water and cool weather. Col. W. A. Farrish, one of "the most noted mining experts of the United States, arrived in Clifton Tuesday evening, accompanied by B. P. Campbell, also a well known mining man. Mr. Farrish was non committal as to his business, but stated that he would spend some time here, which means that he will investigate and report upon some mining property of the district. Mr, Farrish recently spent considerable time in Sonora and Chihuahua, where he reports great activity in mining. Mr. . i arrian, was always a friend to the Clifton-Morenci dis trict, and was the first mining en gineer of note to fully realize its wonderful resources. The colonel has many friends here among the old timers who always give him a hearty welcome. WALKER'S WEEKLY LETTER OF AUGUST 4TH. There is danger of a run-a-way copper market. Lake and elec trolytic are selling for 151 to 15 cents per pound, and there are more buyers than sellers. Most producers have sold their product as far ahead as October, and are out of the mar ket except for later dates. There is a strong demand for spot deliveries, and it is this that is forcinsr prices higher. The efforts of the leading producing and selling interests to prevent this advance in prices nave been in vain. They felt that 15 cents per pound was hiyh enough, and as consumers seemed well satisfied with a steady market at that level, it was thought best to discourage specula tion and to deliver all their copper as rapidly as it could be produced and refined. By this means the market was held down to 15 cents for several months, though it was a period of steadily gaining consumption. h-xports of copper during July, so far reported, were 17,-13 long tons. It is expected that Pacific port ship ments, when all in, will swell this to above 18,000 tons. It is understood that the falling off in July was due to some arrangement between some -do mestic producers and foreign con sumers by which certain shipments were delayed until this month. The foreign demand continues very strong, with the exception that there nas been a slight temporary letup in the Chinese buying. Europe is tak ing a very large amount of our copper. Inose who can see nothinjsr but calamity in the business world, and who pretend to doubt the legitimacy of the present demand for copper, will do well to study the instrument statement for June, put out this week by the American lelephone com pany. It gives the net output of telephones for the month as 68,128, compared with 39,168 in June of the previous year, something like a 40 per cent, increase. The total in crease in the company's outstanding telephones in the twelve months was 970,031, or nearly 25 per cent. When it is realized that each of these 9iU,- 631 new instruments installed, as well as the scores of thousands of others that were put out by independent companies, required a circuit of cop per wire, besides coils, switches, switchboards, etc., it becomes plain that the telephone business alone must consume the product of at least one very large copper mine, inis growth "in the use of the telephone constitutes a reflection of industrial progress and expansion that cannot possibly be misleading. While it is to be hopea tnat mere will be no stampede, it cannot be de nied that the price of copper is likely to be forced up to 16 or 18 cents per pound. If aggressive buy ing for Chinese account should be re sumed immediately, the price might go to 20 cents. As all the copper that the mines and reduction works of the world can put out is now com ing to market, there would be no supplies of metal to take care of a further sudden expansion of demand.

The Era is informed that the Sum mer Widowers "took on dreadful" at their last meeting. They had been hearing from their wives, who were unanimous in the opinion that the old boys were having too much fun. All members were reminded of their ob ligation to keep secret at work of the club, under the awful penalty of the double Cross of a gin rickey. Ever man present swore that he had not "leaked" a word, and yet club secrets had appeared in the Era. Several men said they would "stop" the sheet at once. The following letter was received this morning by the editor of the Era from a summer widow who is spending the summer at Long Beach: "Mr. Editor If you have another 'write up' of that old Summer Wid owers' Club there won't be a Clifton woman left in California. They are leaving for home on every train, and unless that horrid club is broken up I am sure they will never leave home again. It just shows that you never can trust men. They will do the most aw.ful things when their wives are away. Do not fail to send me the Era as I can't afford to miss a single copy." George Samuels, the well known theatrical manager of New York, has completed a-circuit of towns in the southwest, with headquarters at Las Vegas, and will bring' -uiabjg company of especially engaged play ers from New York", to present a series of standard productions. Elaborate scenery and novel electri cal devices have been constructed and for the first time local theatre goers will have a chance to see a play mounted with as close attention to accuracy and detail, as when it was originally produced. Each set has been built to conform to the size of local stages, and everything is new and complete. The "company will make the tour every seven weeks, presenting two plays of wide ly different characters at each visit, and taking a complete new scenic equipment each trip.. Mr. Samuels believes that the returns will justify the great expenditure, and that Southwestern theatre-goers will ap preciate his efforts to please. The first productions will be "The De searted Bride" and "The Man From Mexico." During the past week two resi dences on Hill's ilat have been en tered late at night by someone who was no doubt bent on burglary. The first occurred at the Hill residence Sunday night while George Trues dale, who is caring for Mr. Hill dur ing his illness, was absent to secure a doctor. The would-be burglar en tered through the front door and pro ceeded to the dining room. Mr. Hill heard him in the rear rooms, and get ting up out of bed, secured his gun and then called to know who was there. The thief immediately ran through the hall, and by the time Mr. Hill reached the door he had made his escape into the street. On Mon day night a residence on the flat which is now occupied by two men who work at night, was entered and ransacked for valuables. During the past three weeks a number of burg laries and attempted burglaries have occurred here and at Morenci. The burglar seems to be very bold, and is also quite successful in his undertak ings.
