AKIZONA WEEKLY REPUBLICAN: PIKENIX. THUJRSDAY, FEBUAKY 23, 18 3.
51 V II i TUCSON LETTER. The Kibbey MurderTrial in Progress. An Early Session of the . Land Grant Court. The Old Puoblo Whitonod by a Fall of the Beautiful. Suswostlon to tho Legislature Concerning tho Enactment of a Game Law. ,.- Ti'cson, Ariz., Feb 16. Hpecinl. Tiicboii is pretty lively at present, the Kibbey trial Iikb bronchi a large array of witneppec to town, the hotel are full and parties arriving from the east and eltenbere, have experienced much diflieuliy in obtaining rooms. The trial will be of long duration and will attract much attention. The venire of trial jurors included the best men in tluidlHtrict. Tho land grant court commences for the llrt time in Tucson next week. The judges of the court will arrive Sat urday, and in most instancee will be accompanied by their wives. It lie lioovee Tiiccoii to extend to these dis tinguished gentlemen and their fami lies every possible courtesy to make their etay in the old pueblo pleasant. It is said that tho court comprises an unusual amount of legal ability, which has commanded great respect wherever the sessions have been held. United Sta'es Attornev Reynolds, who repre sents the government in the matter of these grant is already here and is re ceiving a most hearty welcome. Mr. Reynolds' work has been of great value to the United States and to th9 set tlers. He has fought for the rights of the people indefatigably and has nchieved rictories that speak well for bis legal abilities His splendid man agement of the Aleodones grant case would inure a welcome in Yuma that would astonish him. His premises are carefully prepared when he appears 'n court against these land grants and he has tho tenacity and legal ability to nuitain him elf under any and all cir cumstances. The land crant settlers have a stauuch and safe friend in United States Attorney Reynolds, a man who makes their interests his own, and pro tects their homes with a marked ability that showa careful study. He is today the beat informed man of the law ap pertaining to land grants in the UniteUl States. Samel Hughes takes rank as a weather profit second to none. With n clear sky and warm spring weather, he prophesied snow for Tuesday, the 14th, and tho snow came, and capped the sur 1 1,,. ' rounding mountains and fell in streets of Tucson, though it failed to lay and whiten the ground. We have known for a considerable period that Sam possessed a shrewd fcnowlidge of ..;, ,..,.., ii,..,- i,..,f.tion r,f ii.iii,. it, i. ...u..n ..vo..., ., "ik. J - years residence in Arizona but we did not fully appreciate his return bible, ability until the rain and pnow com menced falling yesterday. The cattle men are jubilant. Even wells and old time watering plaocs were diied up, and the whole country was sadly in need of rain to help the overstocked cattle ranges. , Candidates for oflico arc looming up on all sides. Asa rule they are men in good standing, capable of filling the olllces they seek creditably, making good public servants. Statehood is not bo near as to bo dan gerous, I regret to eay. Monkeying with our rights is mere partimo to con gress, and it would be cruel not to rc eolvo ourselves into a foo'ball for their amusement. What the Democrats will do for statehood wo will bo allowed to reflect over for a long time, ns there iH no probabiT'ty of tuoro than a special session ol the senato to confirm the ap pointees of tho incoming president. TbiiiRB aro getting hot among tho Democratic factions here. It is war to the knife, and razors in the air. Hughes is a candidate for governor, and the fight is going to bo bitter, but iii the natural roureo of events the result must bo determined early in the fight. Mining matters aro looking parti cularly bright at present. Now dis coveries in our county show tho im mense riches hidden from sight, which energetic development may discover. The land grant curso is a blight on mining in southern Pima, and when these matters are settled an increased activity may bo expected. A strict game law ought to bo passed by the present legislature. Thousands of dozens of quail aro being trapped openly in Arizona and sent to market in largo cities. The timo is not far distant when tho eastern huntsman cannotcomoto Arizona for game, it is a fact that unless activo measures are taken to protect our game, it will soon bo a thing of tho past, tho samo as tho buffalo of tho plains, that wero driven to slaughter by the thousand merely for their pelts. The trapping of quail is an outrage, and the heavy hand of the law ought to be laid on persons guilty of such acts. I hope the game laws may bo made sufficiently strict to preservo a reason able amount of game within our borders. Pima county expects great thing of its legislators. .Smith Knocked Out.

How Private Shareholders Will Be Induced to Surrondor Their Stock. WAbiiiNdToN, Feb. 15. Associated Press. In tho eonate the Nicaraugua bill was taken up and Sherman, in charge, said that all contracts between the canal company and the const ruction company were to bo swept out of ex istenre." The government could start with "clear tables" and it would own f 8,000,000 of the $10,000,000 of stock. Twelve millions of tho stock is in the bands of private owners and could only bf obtained from them by some method of condemnation. Brico inquired whether it would not bn the policy of tho government to fix the canal tolls so as to leave no divi dend for Btork and whether in that event tho $12,000,000 of stock in the hands of private owners would be of any value to them. Sherman repplicd hu uiih not prepared to speak of the value of stocks. Teller intervened in the discussion. Sherman declined to stibini' the interruption which Teller excused by saying that he had inter vened because the senators from Ohio had been making misrepresentation. "That in false" said Sherman, "I do nut misrepresent anything. I say, again if the government of tho United States shall have control of tliia canal it is not to bo presumed that it would levy such tolls as would pay dividends on watered stock or any other stock." Squires made a speech in support of the bill at the close of which the bill was laid aside. $100 Reward $IOO.

An Experiment Made Ju9t to See How Powerful an Arizona Habeas Corpus Is. A young man was permitted to go in to court Friday with a string tied to him, by way of an experiment. Ho was Ed Hill, the Washington murderer, arrested last week by Deputy Sheriff George Webb at Blevin's ranch in tho Sierra Anchas. Hill was located in this part of Arizona three or four weeks ago by means of a photograph tent out by the Washington authorities, and since then the sheriffs force here has kept up an unremitting search for him. Tho crime for which Hill is wanted is the murder of a companion named Summers at Colfax, Wash., on tho 5th of last November. As soon as he was arrested ho was quietly brought to tho Phoenix jail and every precaution was taken against tho habeas corpus special ist. Tho Washington authorities were notified and yesterday morning Sheriff Lathrum of" Witcom county arrived with a requisition, which was at once honored by Uovernor Murphy. Before it was served, however, the thing against which the authorities had been guarding, the habeas corpus proceeding, came about, though they were better prepared for it than they would have been without tho requisition. Hill's attorney is J.E. Marks. The prisoner was taken into court lato in the afternoon. District Attorney Williams was on hand with the warrants for Hill's arrest and tl0 various telegrams which had been re ceived from tho Washington authorities relative to the reward, also the tele gram in which it was enjoined that the prisoner shoald bo denied all commu nication with tho outside world. Tho requisition was down stairs in the sheriff's office; this was the "tring" referred to, which gave Sheriff Murphy so much confidence in bis ability to bold the prisoner and which made him, perhaps, rather willing that the habeas corpus proceeding should take place. He was curious, he said, to see how near a habeas corpus could como to opening a jail door for a, murderer. After an examination of the warrants, telegram and requisition, Mr. Marks desired a coutinuiinco until 2 o'clock this afternoon that he might in tho meantime make a survey of the situ ation and an investigation of thepaners in the hands of tho governor. Tho continuance was accordingly allowed against tho protests of the district at torney, who, taking it for granted that the habeas corpus would fail, remarked that Sheriff Lathrum was anxious to get away tonight with the prisoner. Hill is a good looking young man, and judged by his appearance, would not be selected us a murderer. Standing by Mlnlstor Stephens. Wasiiinoton, Fell. 15. Secretary Fos ter this afternoon telegraphed to Minis ter Stephens at Honolulu npprovnl of liis action in affirmatively responding to the provisional government for the establishment of a protectorate over the islands pending negotiations for annex ation to tho United States. Instruc tions lor guidance in his future actions are included in the telegram. HOW TO DO IT. Arizona Will Send Modern Material to Congress. An Old Washington Man offers the . Following Suggestion to Coming Congressmen of Arizona. As Arizona will some day in the saccharine subsequently, or in other vvordH in the sweet byc-and-byo doubt less receive a blessine from both branches of conpress, which, together with the benediction of the president, will entitle her to all tho privileges and emoluments of a membership card in the Bisterhood of states, it may not be amies at this particular timo to oiler a little advice to some of tho members of tho present territorial legislature, an well as to outsiders who, per chance mav have a congressional "bug" con cealed under their hatB. That there Is good material to he found in this legislature from which to manufacture congretsmen no ono dare gainsay. It is a well known fact that any state legislature is a grand primary department for persons with higher "aspirations, but oh 1 what a dif ference when you reach Washincton. Tho modus operandi will to all appear ances ho very familiar, indeed, and yon may think you know it all by heart; but you don't. When for tho first timo you catch tho speaker's eye and hear his voice thunder "Tho gentleman from Arizona," icicles aro very apt to form on your spinal column before you have fairly begun your discourse Go slow; refiiee to be interrupted by any of those old timers whoso pantaloons aro worn threadbare from long' and constant service in congress, and whose sole ambition is to "rattle" a new comer; bo sure to commence something after this style: "Mr. Speaker I have been here, sir, for about six months trying to catch your eyo, you lop-eared, lantern-iawed, snuinteyed pon-of-a'gnn. but until now have been unablo to do so. remaps sir, you uon'i Know wnere I hail from. I'll havo you know sir, that I come from Arizona. ' You may hang Salt river on a clothes lino to dry ; laeeo an avalanche with a passing thought, pin a napkin over the month of a volcano to stop the flow of lava, scrape all tho snow Irom the Iluachucas with a Bpoon, paste 'To Lei on the moon and stars, but never for a momeiu allow yourself to b. deluded with tho idea that the grand and glorious state of Arizona is going to waste for the want of national aid." Then ask leave to have the balance of your remarks printed in the Record and score one for Arizona. A RICH STRIKE. Two Old Mines In the Harqua Halas Como to the Front.

It Is Shown That He Manifested Joy at Sight of the Certificate of His Wife's Death. Los Anokleh, Feb. 18. Associated PresB.j The preliminary examination of Henry lientley charged with having caused the death of his wife, Mrs. Nordholdt Bentley, by giving her strychnine, was held today. Nothing further than developments at the coroner's inquest was testified to. William Nordholdt son of Mrs. lirntley testified to Ilentley's glee when the physician made a certificate of death due to hec.rt disease, and said: "I'm awful glad of that." The nurse of Mrs. lientley, Mrs Hancade testified that lientley administered medicine to Mrs, Bentley from a bottle filled with crystals which looked like salt. Mrs. Bentley used to complain about the medicine, but Bentley coaxed her to take it. Several times slio said to lientley: '.'Please don't give mo that medicine it nearly kills me" when Bentley insisted of her taking the medicine she said : "Yon want to kill mo and get my pioperty." Once Mrs. Ilentlev aked the witness to get the Ixittle containing the medicine and she hunted for it high and low, but could not find it at all. The witness identi fied the bottle of strychnine found in Bentley's valise nsthe same from which lie gave tho medicino to Mrs. Bentley. When Mrs Bentley died, the witness said she frothed at tho mouth. The doctors all testified that it was their opinion that Mrs. Ilentlev died from an overdose of strychnine. A.tmroU Lille.
