' Webster Street baa boon ap pointed county judge of Cocbise county by tbe Governor. Mrs-H. Smadbeck.of tbia place, left last Saturday for Solomon villo, to visit Mrs. L E. Solomon. Mr James Obi, of Aravaipa Can yon, bas returned borne from bis trip to New Orleans and tbe East Tucsos papers state that tbe railroad from that city to Cal nbassas will be built immediately. Wheat and barley in thftGila alley are beginning to bead. The indications for a good crop are fine. Tbe engineers are now in tbe field locating tbe line of the Miner al Belt railroad, from Flagstaff to Globe. - Mrs. R A. Allred, of Solomon ville, who bas been seriously ill, we are pleased to learn is conval escent W. R. McCormick bas been ap pointed Justice of tbe Peace of Clifton Precinct, vice E. B. Frink, resigned. Morenci bas no peace officer. A constable should be appointed for that precinct by the Board of Su pervisors Jailer Chris. Glennon, of Sol omonville, visited Clifton this week, and favored the Clarion of fice with a call. Fort Thomas has now a garri son of but twenty-five men. The colored troops are expected about the first of May. . Superintendent Jones, of the Arizona & New Mexico railroad, and family, will return to iiords burg on the 17th inst The American Wizard, Prof. Griffith, will give one of bis en tertainments in the dining ball of the United States botol this eve ning. Monday last the Arizona Copper Company "blowed-in" a third furnace, and intend, we believe, to keep three stacks running right along. F. E. McGinness, the gentle manly post trader nt Fort Thomas, continues to keep on hand the finest assortment of liquors and cigars. J. Duncan Smith, Esq., and John Wilson, Esq., of Edinburgh, Scotland, directors of tbe Arizona Copper Company, will arrive in Clifton Friday next The prosecution of Dr. McSwe gan, of Tombstone, for abortion, is said to be a conspiracy on the part of professional rivals, to injure tbe Doctor's reputation and practice. H. C. Hooker, Esq., of Sierra Bonita, has been elected a vice president of the Territorial Fair Association as a representative of Graham county. An excellent choice. C. P. Head & Co., of Prescott, the largest firm in that city, on account of dull times, have closed up their bouse at that place and consolidated their business at Fort Verde. A special meeting of the Board of Supervisors has been called by Chairman Stevens to convene at the county seat to-morrow for the purpose of approving the bond of L. Fraissinet as assessor. IL E. Lacey. former post trader at Fort Apache, and a whole souled, genial gentleman, bas pur chased the suttler's store at Fort Bayard, N. M. So says the Pres cott Courier. J. J. Snyder, of tbo Mayflower ranch, visited Clifton tbo past week. Mr. Snyder intends making the ranch bis home from this time on, and becoming a bona fide resi dent of Arizona. A Chis.vmas who bad been mar ried to a negro woman in Havana, Cuba, passed through Tucson re cently, with thoir six curly-queued children, en route for China to remain. They attracted much at tention at tbe depot by their curi ous mixture of nationality. A Mexican named J uan Fuentis was attacked at an early hour last Sunday morning, in Morenci, by three countrymen, named Felipe Caro, Antonio Delowo and Ln cerio Ferro, who, after beating him with bludgeons in a fonrful manner, left him for dead. Deputy Sheriff Hovey was notified of the assault late in tho day, but when be arrived in Morenci tbo assail ants bad fled. Fuentis, although badly hurt, will recorer. From Dnncan. J. R. Farrell and E. B. Gage made a flviag visit to Carlisle last week. We bad a violent wind and rain storm Sunday evening about 5 o'clock, but no damage done. Repairing of the wash out on the narrow gauge still goes on, and makes times lively in Duncan. Judge Thurmond has returned from his trip to Big Springs, Texas, looking vory much im proved. Tbe Carlisle Gold Mining Com pany shipped SIS.OOO in gold bullion last week, the product of a ten days' run. Judge Thurmond was called to Lordsburg by wire Friday after noon to prosecute a criminal case. No names given. Howard C. Boon was unexpect edly called to Colorado Springs, Monday morning, by a telegram from his mother, who is danger ously ill at that place. The round-up commenced Mon day at Hart's ranch, in the Bur ro Mountains. They will come down the Gila river, and expect to reach Duncan about May 15. We had our first regularly or ganized Sabbath school Sunday. That is, tbo school as not divided into classes nntil that day,- and it was a decided success. The man ner in which the superintendent, Prof. McKay, had the bouse deco rated, was much of a credit to him and bis pupils. After Sab bath school Dr. Pax ton delivered a thirty-minute lecture on "Tho full knowledge of God," taking tbe ground that God did not know all things from the begin ning of the world. Indian Mrart. During tbe past week there have been current in this vicinity many Indian rumors, which, after diligent inquiry, we have failed to trace to any reliable source. Some Mexicans came into Morenci Fri day last who reported having seen Indians on Eagle creek, but they could not Bay whether they were bostiles or not To their state ment, doubtless, originated all the rumors, among them the one that Messrs. Cunningham and Creach, who left here on the morning of the Cth for Hampson's ranch, had been killed. The friends of these gentlemen in Clifton, in cluding the well known Indian fighter, Capt Cutter, discredit tbe story about the massacre in toto. On account of the scare a num ber of miners working in Gold Gulch and woodchoppers from Eagle creek camo into Morenci last week, but as no hostiles have mado their appearance, they have doubtless returned to their work ere this ap'pears in print Friday it was tbe dynamite excitement on Longfellow bill, Saturday tbe Indian scare, Sun day the cyclone and yesterday J ndge Sias' boy baby. By a unan imous vote of the entire house hold he is declared to be tbo "boss," and our latest advices are to tbe effect that Mrs. Sias and tbe young legislator are both get ting on well. Mr. N. Anderson, who arrived in Solomonville last week from Apa che county, 6tats that a German, named Jacobs, late of Show Low, who accompanied him on bis jour ney, was drowned on tbe 9th inst while attempting to cross the Gila river below Camp Thomas. The body was not found. His horses were also drowned. C. P. Leitcb, of Eureka Springs ranch, Graham county, returned from Tucson last Thursday, with six high grade Hereford bulls, which he bought of Walter Morgan & Son, of Irvine, Kansas, who brought out two car loads of these high grade animals, for which they find a ready sale. Mr. Leitcb in forms us that tho Hereford stand him about S'JO each, but he is well satisfied with his bargain. Wilcox Stockman. Peaches and apricots as large as walnuts, figs half grown, and grape vine3 covered with little fruit can now bo found in the Salt River valley, which is pretty good for the Sth of April. Our fruit season opens full half a month ahead of California, which will prove a great advantage in the future. The next crop promises to bo very large. Phoenix Gazette. Matt Coselman, tho engineer, who was accidentally shot at Guthrie a couple of months ago, and who was taken to bis borne in Aurora, Illinois, is sinking slowly but surely. Advices received of his condition last week report that he cannot live much longer, if he has not joined the silent majority already. Prof.Chas..Hogsett, of Morenci, bas charge of tho roller skating rink at that place. It was thrown open to the public last Saturday evening, and Morenci hall, where the skating takes place, was on that night tho centre of attraction. Among the late prominent arri vals at the Clifton Hotel are the following: A!. Libenthal, Felix Cobleutz, F. H. Holm, Oris Her man, 1. D. Pik-p, :!! of :ai Francisco. Kevere Wind ttoria. Sunday afternoon last Clifton was visited by a wind storm which, perhaps, was the most severe ever experienced in this place. Indoed, it was a veritable cyclone, coming from tho East, and its approach was mado known by clouds of dust and a roaring sound like the rush of mighty waters, before the force of its fury was felt in town. After reaching Clifton it sported for a moment with sheet-iron roofing and other light objects, burling them in every direction, and then seemed to concentrate its force in tho vicinity of the company's build ings on the east side of tho river, unroofing a portion of tbo manager's dwelling and sending the roof over tho hospital and do positing it upon the bouse occu pied by Justice Casey and family, tbe roof of which was broken in and tho house otherwise so de molished thaE it remained but a wreck. Mr. Casey was felled by a falling timber and pinioned to tbe floor, receivingpainfuand serious injuries, from which, however, we are glad to know, ho is recover ing. Fortunately, most of tbo children of the family were not in the bouse at the time, or more serious results would probably have followed. Strange to relate, no other serious accident oc curred, and the loss to property was small. A Mexican, who at tempted to cross the lower sus pension bridge when tha storm was at its height, was thrown thirty feet in the air and fell where the water was deepest. He sustained no injury beyond that cf an involuntary bath, but upon emerging from the water indulged in language, more emphatic than polite, in his native tongue. The Prescott Miner having men tioned a number of names for fed era! positions in Arizona, among them that of Hon. Pat Ham ilton for Territorial Secretary, the Phconix Gazette endorses the nomination as follows: "We do not know that Mr. Hamil ton is an aspirant for the place, but, with all due respoct to others mentioned in connection therewith, we believe there is no man who would be more acceptable to our j people. ie is thoroughly compe tent is un Anzonan in every sense of the word, a sound Democrat, has a host of friends at home and abroad, and more fully under stands the needs and requirements of the Territory than any man m it The Gazette is taking no part in the fight now being made for federal positions, but it sincerely hopes that men of ability and integrity will be selected." To all of which we heartily concur. Pat rick Hamilton has occupied many positions of public trust in this Territory, and he has always been faithful. If President Cleveland, in making bis seloction for Terri torial Secretary, intends to chose from among the many deserving and well-qualified Democrats of the Territory, be could not make a more popular selection. Sunday evening there was a meeting at the school house in Clifton, which was called to order by Col. M. J. Egan, who moved that Judge Goodwin take tho chair. The object of the meeting was stated to be for the purpose of making arrangements to give an entertainment for tho benefit of Justice D. C. Casey, who was injured during tho wind storm 'of that day. On motion of Col. Egan, a comiuitteo of arrangements consisting of tho chairman and two members, Messrs. Laago and Naismith were named as the com mittee to arrange for a literary entertainment at the school houso next Saturday evening, tho pro ceeds of which will be presented to Mr. Casey as a slight token of the regard of our citizens and the sympathy they feel for him in his misfortune. The price of admis sion tickets was fixed at 1 re served seats, 2. The object is a good one, and we are glad to see it encouraged. Mr. Casey is a good man, useful citizen and head of a large and interesting family. No doubt bis accident will disable him from work for a long time. He is one of the most trustworthy mechanics in the em ploy of the Arizoua Copper Com pany. Capt. N. Ambler, who a couple of years ago brought into this county the best lot of freight teams ever seen in it now that freighting is a thing of the past has concluded to settle down as a cattle man. Some time ago he located a rango about four miles from Clifton, after having made arrangements for a water supply with the Detroit Copper Coin panny, whose pipe-line ctofsos his range, and last week his first in stallment of 450 head of cattle, purchased in Cochise county, ar rived. Capt. Ambler never does anything by halves, and in duo time he will come to tho front as one of our chief cattle growers. A. D. McLean, foreman of tho Detroit Copper Company's mines, who was injured recently by a blast at the Montezuma mine, is again on duty, having nearly re gained his former good health. BOK.

We acknowledge, with thanks, an invitation to attend a Mas querade Ball at Duncan, on Monday evening, the 27th inst The affair proinjses to be ono of the grandest ever witnessed in this part of the Territory. Commissioner Murphy, Arizona's representative" at the World's fair, has been olectod as a member of a committee of five to arrange for the American exhibit at tho Lon don exposition to be held next year. Mr. E. Schumann, foreman of construction, Arizona Copper Co., returned to Clifton last week from a two months visit to San Fran cisco. He is now a well-qualified member for a fat man's club. ut tc.
