of three notable events. The first of
these was the recurrence of tho an
niversary of the birth of the man who
made himself famous by assuming
paternal relations toward his country
and by attacking a tlei'itluous tree with
a hatchet ami when tin afterward did
not have sufficient presence of mind to

Another event was the close of the
orgies which mark tho celebration of
the Chinese New Year. Tom-toms anil
instruments something like an old
fashioned cow bell have tortured' the
air from sundown to midnight, every
night for the past week.
The Chinese are prone to bo noisy on
all occasions of a religious nature, which,
in the caie of the New Year is explain-'
ed as follows: On New Year a guardian
spirit, who stands between Chinamen
I nd thederil, leaves the earth to attend a
conference of higher powerB to whom
he must submit a comprehensive
and statistical report of affairfe
on earth. This trip occupies just
a week, during which time every
thing is left wide open for the
devil. That individual is supposed to be
possessed of an exceedingly sensitive

ft lead in the first inning, which Phienix
was unable to overcome, Roth teams
showed lack of practice, but settled
down to good work after the third
inning, the score being 7 to 0 in favor
of Tempo. Neither side scored in the
next five innings, both being retired in
one-two-three order. The crowd
which had continually grown in num
bers, had by this time closed in on the
outfield, and when a ball went outside
of thu diamond it was nearly impossi
ble for the fielders to get it. In the eighth
inning Tempo batted a ball into the
crowd which Griffin was unable to gut
and this hit netted a run for Tempo.
In tho ninth l'ctnpo scored 2 more,
thus leaving the pcore 10 to 6.
Pratt made the only long hit of the
game, a long tly over second bate net

Indian Warfare.
Yesterdav was a marked day in
Tempo's history and her citizens
showed a degree of enterprise which was
possibly unequaled any where else in
tho United States'. It had tho effect of
calling together one of tho largest
crowds ever seen in Arizona. The
drawing number was tho Indian battle
which had been extensively advertised,
including the various terpsichorean ex
exercises which were to precede and
follow that bloodless afT.ur. Tho main
purposo was to show to latter day civil
ization how an Aimelie stronghold
could be taken by the Maricopas, the
ancient enemies of the Apaches. The
advisory committee wisely concluded
that it was Pest to nave proxy Ap.ieiies
otherwise the attempt to take the
stronghold might bo attended with real
red bloodshed. Accordingly a lot of
Pima's were substituted for them.
Tho stronghold was Tempe buttss.
The warriors were clad in briixht paint
anil tho wirjor fourth violin string.
Tim ba'tlo was not conducted ac
cording to any special system, and the
result was mysterious ami uncertain
However, it was au Indian battle, and
the multitude was satisfied, the hade
of G. Washington was pleased and the
Tempo city railway was duly inaugur
ated. Tho warriors were presented
with an ox. which was killed, tlrex-td,
cooked and eaten according to tho most
primitive methods. It may be remarked
that the meat was seasoned with tho
sand which prevails In the vicinity of
the button, and was afterwards care
lessly lolled in the mire and blood
which had accumulated about tho
pVitce ol slaughter. But this feature of
tho iV&rformanco was eminently and
cntiroly'fndian, and that was what the
crowd went to see.
Another fet'.'iro was a danco by
squaws to each of. whom four yards of
the moat luried caltvo obtainable had
been nromisol. The prizo was well
earned, but the dusky dancers set up a
claim that tho colors were too tame
and tho yard sticks too short.
Whether their ground of objec ,
tion was good or not is uncertain, but
if so they were the only oiement in tho
vast throng which gathered at Tempo
yesterday that had a kick coming.
The Bicycle Tournaments.
Tho episode at Phcenix was a bicycle
tournament, instituted by tho Valley
Club to whom belongs the credit of
having devised tho only scheme for
keeping a part of the population of
Phienix at home.
The tournament was a success, bring
ing together a greater number of wheels
than had ever before seen in the
south west. An elaborate program of
ten races had been arranged and was
w ell carried out. Tho wheel work was
better tnan had been expected acd Is
likelv to give cycling a, healthy impetus
in tho territory, at least many visitors
were in attendance at the rcces.
The first event was b half mile
race between 'A. O. Brown,
Dean Hoss and W. II. Hobiuson.
Brow won the race and prize, a
pair of bicycle shoes donated by Gold
berg Bros, in 1:32J.
The eecond was a mile raco between
Harry Brown and W. 11. Smith; prize
a gold scarf pin from Amos Plank; won
by Brown in 4:00.
Six entries wuro mado for the 103
yards slow race which was also won by
Harry B'own ; prize a box of merchan
dise contributed by Winthrop Sears
anil Walter Porter.
The fourth event was a mile race,
entries Victor Manny and C. 8. Burd
sall ; prize five cans ol oysters by F. A.
Phillips, won by Burdsall in 3:22J-
Z.O.Brown, Harry Brown, Manny
anil Burdi-all were competitors in a
quarter mile open race for two prizes, a
box of cigars by Sam Seip and a foun
tain pen by the Irvine company. The
first prize was taken uy liurusaii the
Econtl by Hunny.
The two-mile handicap came next on
the program for three prizes, a sweater
by Puil Brannen, a Bilver match box
and coir.p.iss by Pratt Bros., mounted
deer antlen by Peoples ami Smith.
Uos was stationed at first quarter, the
two Browns, Will Dunbar and Robin
con at the one-eighth and Manny at 100
vanls. The raco was won by Rw m
0:35, Z. O. Brown second and Manny
One of the most interesting eyejits
was the mile race between A. W. Gal
pin and Billnp's pacer, even etart, won
by Hatpin by a scratch in 3:01 and the
n'rize one dozen nhotoirrrphs by F. A.
The closing event was the half mile
contest between Monition and W.1I.
Hobinson. prize a Meerschaum cigar
holder won by Hobiuson in 1 :3S'.
An interesiing event not carried out
"as the ladies' contest for a pair of line
kid gloves, contributed by the Red Cor
net;. The announced contestants were:
Mrs. Seip, Mies McKlwam anil Mis
Bieknell. On thu way to thu grounds
Mrs. Seip met with a disabling injury,
and her competitors determined not to
enter the race. Another feature of the
meet was a magnificent street parado.
Thus was Washington's birthday
celebrated in Arizona. If the Father
of his Country looked down upon the
proceedings, and if lie now has any in
lluence at tho national capital, this ter
ritory may certainly expect to bo soon
made a state.
Ed. Hill, the gentleman wanted in
the state of Washington for murder and
whose application for a writ of habeas
corpus was pending from Saturday
night until Monday morning at 10
o'clock, on Sunday night removed him
self from the jurisdiction of the court,
and took his case and Henry Leland, a
noted horse thief, along with him. In
other words, Mr. Hill broke jail. This
incident occurred about 7 o'clock and
was discovered by Deputy Sheriff Wid
mer, who thought he saw someone
climbing over the garden wall. It
didn't occur to him that anyone was
getting out, but rather that someone
else had been trying to break in. He
went to the jail though and counted the
noses of the prisoners, but did not ob
servo the noses of Messrs. Hill and
Leland. He did, however, observe a
holo in tho floor, and by following it also
discovered a hole in the brick all
which leads into the jail yard. That
Bettled it in his mind that the man ho
had Been was either Leland nr Hill.
The hole had been made in the floor
by means of an iron bar used in fasten
ing the cells and the enterprise was un
dertaken at a time just before the hour
for locking up and just after most of
the prisoners had gore into their cells.
When tho discovery of the break was
mado ttio telephone' and telegraph ot
fices were closed, but the Bearch was
begun a; once and us soon as communica
tion could bo estab'ished, word was
sent every where, but no definite trace
of tho fugitives could In- obtained. Yee-
terd y a telegram was received from
Maricopa saying that a suspicious
character had eaten breakfast there,
but his description did not fit either
Leland or Hill.
A hori-o was ptoleti from the south
Methodist church and later a report
was received of another taken from a
farmer named Titus, living north of
Tempo, and'ollieers believe that the
animals wore stolen by the prisoners.
Deputies Webb, Wldmer and Slank
ard went to Tempe and Bent back word
by telephone that they had a trace of
tho men on their way to Tonto Basin.
They said they would take fresh horses
and follow. At a lato hour last night
no further word.had been received.
Ed Peck antl Mr. Mullens reported
that they paw two men running from
the direction of the iail southwest, but
this report was not received until yes
terday morning.
Mill's case was called in court yester
day murium.- just the same as if lie had
been there anil his attorney :ur. .iarics
with admirable coolness requested the
court to compel the j.iil authorities to
show what thav had done with Iiib
client, a thing the authorities would
have H'on nnite triad to do.
Mr. Marks aNo asked the court it the
prisoner's petition would hold good in
the event of hia re-capturo The court
replied that courts were' seldom called
upon to consider ju.st such n question,
but it was liis opinion that a jail break
ing prisoner might bo considered to
have got of the ground he had occupied
when he made his application.
An interi sting question concerning

Jackson's Confirmation.
Washington, Feb. 20. Jackson was
confirmed aseociate justice of tho su
preme court this afternoon. There was
not even a formality vote in the ex
ecutive seseion of the"eenate on the con
firmation, which was made without a
single objection. The confirmation is a
relief to the friends of ttie treaty of an
nexation with Hawaii, who feared it
Aould be used to prevent action in tho
nomination. iow that the matter ia
out of the way they believe the subject
will be promptly disposed of. They
hope in a short time to permit tha
Hawaiian commissioners to carry new

there of the document itself.
The Hydraulic Mining Bill.
