The Vienna Bakery, - Joe Throm proprietor, will open for business on Chase creek Monday next. Mr. Throm has had much experience in this .line of business, anU will be pleased to receive the patronage of the public. Wm. Wilson, an old and respected gentlemen who has resided in the Duncan country the past twenty years or more, last week met with a most serious accident, which might cripple him, the balance .of his life. Mr." Wilson is an industrious man and while attempting to raise an old cider mill, slipped and fell into his cellar. He fell feet foremost several feet, landing on top of some machinery which he had stored in the cellar, sustaining serious internal . injuries. He has been confined to his bed ever since and it is likely that he will never again be able to walk. His many friends throughout the south west hope that it is not as serious as reported and that "he will be able to get out again. Perhaps it would be advisable for him to come to Clifton, where he could deceive the proper attention at the hospital. The Era is authorized to issue a challenge from the Shannon office and store force to the A. C. office and store force for a match game of ten-pins at the new bowling alley. It will be remembered that the Shan non and A. C's. played two match games of base ball, the result being a tie, and this will be a chance for revenge. The Era will not attempt to pick out the winner as both sides have well established reputations as "bowlers." There are several on both sids who bowl an average in the neighborhood of 200, and no doubt the contest will be an interest ing one. The A. C. office force has always been noted for its gameness, and will certainly not overlook this opportunity of mixing it with the Shannon. This will only be a starter, as a team could be selected from the two which could challenge Morenci. The Era is in receipt of a letter from Mrs. G. A. Webb, formerly of Clifton, but now of San Diego, Cali fornia, which gives an idea of the wonderful developments of that sec tion, Among other things Mrs. Webb states that real estate has ad vanced thirty per cent, since last spring. Four new street car systems will soon be in operation, and the city is growing in all directions. A new water system is also being put in which will afford an ample supply of good water. The lots which Mrs. Webb sold to Clifton people last spring are now worth from $75 to $100 each. Mrs. Webb is engaged is the real estate business.

The annual meeting of the stock holders of the Shannon Copper com pany has been called to meet at the office of the company at 52 Broad way, New York, on the 27th of this month. . Ambrose Burke, the Copper King of Coronado, managed to find time to get in from his camp one day last week. He has the contract for do ing the assessment work on nearly all the claims in that section. P. F. Crowley was down this week from his new camp near Metcalf, where he is meeting with remarkable success in the development of his claims, which adjoin the Antietam and the Shannon group of claims. Mr. Crowley has a number of open ings and shafts on what he calls the Fraction claim, and they are all in ore similar to that which made the Antietam famous, and Mr. Crowley is confident that he will soon have a mine equal to the Antietam. EVENTFUL CAREER OF A BAD HOMBRE ENDED. Manuel Gonzales Killed by Officers While Resisting Arrest. O. P. Lovejoy, of Boston, who is interested in the Chase Creek Copper company, arrived last week, and is giving the camp a careful" examina tion. He is agreeably surprised at the magnitude and development of the district, finding it far, beyond his expectations. He is also well pleased with the location and property of the Chase Creek company, which beyond doubt has a future equal to the best of them. J. J. Jones, for many years master mechanic at the Shannon plant, re signed his position last week and left yesterday morning for the Alto mine, on the line of Sonora, where he has accepted a responsible position. Mr. Jones leaves Clifton with the best wishes of all who know him. Otto Rosenthal!, formerly as sistant master mechanic of the A. C. company, who has been with the Copper Queen company at Douglas for -the past, year has accepted the 'position made vacánt by the resigna tion of Mr. Jones. Both Mr. and Mrs. Rosenthall have many friends In Clifton, who will give them a hearty welcome to their former home. The eighth annual convention of the American mining congress is now in session at El Paso, and is attended by many of the most prominent min ing men ot the unitea states ana Mexico. Favorable rates were made on most railroads, and the attendance is large. The El Paso & Southwest ern made a round trip rate of $3 from any point on the line, which was taken advantage' of by hundreds of people. Hon.. Lamar Cobb was the only delegate who attended the con vention from Graham county. The appointmants from "Arizona were as follows: P F. Collirs, Mohave: F. M. Murphy, Prescott; Walter Doug las, Bisbee; S. A. Parrall, Lowell; Andrew Young Smith, Pearce; Epes Randolph, Tuceon; James Colquhoun, Clifton; Chas. L. Taylor, Globe; E. B." Gage, Tombstone; W. L. Clark, Jerome; Thomas Ewing, Vivian; W. H. Stillwell, Phoenix; Percy Wil liams, Red Rock; Lamar Cobb, Clifton. Work is progressing rapidly on the construction of the Shannon con verter plant. The steel frame for the building is in place, and the foun dation walls for the plant are about completed. A new engine will also soon be in place, so that there will be ample power at all times. It is ex pected that the plant will be running in January, after which the Shannon can justly claim one of the most com plete and modern plants in the ter ritory. The plant is not as large as several in the territory, but it can be added to under the original plans as occasion may require. The Shannon company will soon be prepared to do a regular custom business in treat ing ores, and will save tne values oi precious metals as well as the copper in the ore. This will be of great ad vantage to the district, and will doubtless be the means of opening many mines now idle, the ores of which carry other values than cop per, but which are too low grade to ship to El Paso. The Shannon com pany has made a very pronounced success during tne past year, but as yet it is only at the beginning of its carreer. Tne acnievements or tne Shannon are the more marked when compared with the early history of other companies in the district. The Shannon will yet be one of the big companies of the territory.

Thanksgiving Mask Ball. At the Academy Opera House Nov. 30th, given by Prof. Pretty man. Admission 50c each. Suits for rent at the Opera House and extra five?") for rUci On Tuesday morning a young Mexi can arrived in town, and hunting up the officers informed them that he knew of the location of two men whom he felt sure were implicated in the murder , of Charley Wing, and the he would guide the officers to the place if they desired it. A posse consisting of Bill Spaw, Dave Arzate, Lou Kynnette, Bill Moore, C. F. Pascoe and M. H. Mason was soon or ganized, and with the Mexican as officers arrived at Bill Wood's old guide left town. When ranch on Sardine Manuel Gonzales came out of the house armed with a Winchester rifle and a six shooter and opened fire on them. After fir ing the second shot his Winchester became '"struck," and refused to work. He did not have time to pull his pistol, for the two officers in the lead of the posse returned the fire with such telling effect and accuracy of aim, that the earthly career of the bold outlaw was speedily brought to a permanent close. The dead man was recognized by Dave Arzate, as that of a man for whom he held a warrant for burglary, which he had not been able to serve for the good reason that he alwa3-s kept out of the way. Gonzales had repeatedly sent word to both Arzate and Deputy Sheriff Hobbs that they would have a "hot time" in arrest ing him, and he made his word good. Had his Winchester remained in working order the chances are that he would have shot some of the offi cers before they realized that they were up against a hard proposition. A coroner's inquest was held over the remains yesterday, and the facts elicited were as given above. The taking away of Gonzales is a good riddance to the community. There are two many of his ilk loaf ing around the hills, who make their living by robbery and theft. WAS ONE OP THE MURDERERS. After a careful inspection of the body of the dead man the Chinaman who was shot through the knee recog nized it as that of the man who shot him in the fight at Charley Wing's garden. The Chinaman is very posi tive on this point. This, together with the fact that Gonzales came out and made a flarht without waitinir to be attacked or even asked to sur render, would seem to be almost con clusive proof that he was one of the gang who murdered Charley Wing- This bears out the theory of the officers that while only three men were actually interested in the shoot ing, that others participated in the crime. From information so far made public by the officers it would seem that there were at least five men implicated in the business, which would include the two men captured at Silver City, the man who was wounded and the one with the small foot who assisted him in getting away, and the man who was killed on Sardine creek. Of course there mav have been others, but this will de veloped later. W. Herzberg, stenographer for the Shannon Copper company, has re covered from a severe attack of typhoid fever and is again on the streets much to the delight of his friends. He contemplates taking a trip to California to recuperate. i i nunn v nnnonxini rurvLLi rnouiHL ñ Jud Webster visited Duncan yes terday. "Dad" Hoeye is spending the week in El Paso.

Morenci K. of P's. On Tuesday night of this week the Morenci Knight of Phythias gave a farewell to J. H. Puckett, one of its most distinguished and active mem bers, which was well attended by members of this grand order. Messrs. J. H. Cox, W. R. Wayland, W. D. Whipple and J. O. Baylor represented Clifton lodge and report an excellent time, returning with happy recollections of the manner in which the Morenci knights entertain visitors and extend their well wishes to departing brothers. Tuesday being regular meeting night, the lodge business was trans acted, after which all those present repaired to the Morenci Hotel, where an elaborate spread was disposed of. James Dunseath, one of the shining legal lights of Morenci, ably per formed the duties of toastmaster, and filled the hearts of the many ladies and gentlemen present to overflowing with enthusiasm and at the same time displayed his ability for the position. J. H. Puckett, one of the oldest and most popular residents of Mo renci, in whose honor the reception was given, responded with "The Future," which was' cleverly deliv ered and far reaching, keenly touch ing the hearts of his many friends who so deeply regret his departure but wish him unbounded success his new home in New York.

He also represented Clifton lodge in express ing universal regret of Knig-ht Puckett. Messrs. Wayland, Whipple and Baylor, perhaps the best sinfrle- handed talkers in the order, repre- sentea million witn tne laaies, and were so deeply ensrasred entertaininff the ladies that they had no time for speech making.
