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.
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

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
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

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
Prof.Chas..Hogsett, of Morenci,

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.

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.
