Just received at " the Arizona Copper Company's Brick Store, Main street The Singer, Domes tie. White and Royal St John Sewing Machines.- Come and make your choice. Henry Longraaid superintend ent of the Carlisle mill paid Clif ton a visit last week, and inspected the plant of the Arizona Copper Company at this point, with which fee expressed himself much pleased. The Arizona Copper Co., at the Brick Store, have juat received a large assortment of Gent's furnish ing goods and ready mad cloth ing: they also have a full line of California shirts and drawers. Th subscription i t f r th" Miles sword can be found at Rear dou'a drug store. The list presents a fair array of signatures already, lind by the time it is to be returned, we believe that Clifton will hare made a good showing. The soldiers who have been eon fined in the Cochise county jail for killing - cattle belonging to the Chiricahna Cattle Company, have been turned over to the military authorities at Fort Bowie. They will be tried by court raartiaL CoL N. Ingram, of Morenci, in forms ns that veterans of the Mex ican war intending to apply for pensions can secare the necesxnry papers by writing to him. The Colonel is a Mexican war veteran himself and is thoroughly posted in all matters pertaining thereto. Edward Swift, an old and re-: spec ted citizen of Tombstone, wrs killed in that city on the 17th inst., by a thug and desperado of Fair bank named Jerry Barton. Swift's death was caused by a severe heat ing administered by Burton, the formers neck having leen broken. George Roeb, the enterprising hotel man of Lordsburg, we see by the Advance, is renovating Hud ad ding to his boose, the Arlington. A stable has been arranged for tho keeping of the stock of guests of the bouse, free of charge. Tho Arlington has always been first lass and George is one of the best J;ot! njeri iij tb?fnnfljwet. On last Thursday the A. M. Railway Company rid to thfl Champion Cottle Company the stim of $200 for the killing by their trains, of stock belonging to the latter. The appraisment was fair, and the promptness with which the claims were met is commend able in the railway company. J. P. Robertson, foreman of the C A Bar outfit, was in town on last Thursday. He has jnst returned from a trip to Eagle Creek, and reports that the cattle brought in to that section by the Chiricahna Cattle Company are dying, that they were in very poor condition when driven in, and are nnable to climb the bills for food. Governor Ross, of New Mexico, has tanned requisition papers for Charley Small, now in the Cochise county jail, and the sheriff of that count v will secure the reward of fered by the governor for Small's arrest. Chsrles will answer to the New Mexico antboriti-s for com plicity in the killing made some months ago on the Mimbres. We notice that some of our ex changes are crediting the arrest of Jose Lopez, the murderer of War ren Grout, to Sheriff Slaughter of Cochise. Sheriff Crawford of Gra ham county arrested Lopez and wrote Slaughter to that effect The latter officer came after the pris oner who was confined in the county jail at Solomonville and took h'm awav. The gnano warehouse situated in rear of the Clarion office took tire irom some no known cause, (probably the result of an incen diary's match) and for a while the entire building was threatened by the destroying element Fortun ately two of the Clarion office ms- plojees discovered it a time and with a plentiful application of water succeeded in arresting the flames. No inaarce. No bou quets. Richard Dnobar and family and John Clark left yesterday for Castle Rock, Colorado, where it is probable both will engage in work on the Colorado Midland railroad, now in conrse of construction. Dick has been in this camp five years, and has lately been in charge at the foot of the Metcalf incline. He has earned the repu tation of an honest faithful em ployee, and good citizen. The Clabiom wixlies him prosperity and contentment in his new home. John Whittock takes his place at the Metcalf. H. B. Stevons, long and favor ably known in this county, return ed from a trip to EI Paso on Sat urday. He has formed a co-partnership with Charles Comstock of that city, formerly with the con tractors Haiupson Si Garland, and very well known in this section. The new firm will do a general real estate and insurance business. Mr. Stevens has gained an envi able reputation here for probity, sterling worth and business ca pacity, and we heartily commend him to the business and social world of El Paso. A man named Frazer. the vil age blacksmith at Carlisle, was killed near that place-on last Ssf nrday by one Jackson. It seems that the latter sent Frazer a note requesting him to come ont to his (Jackson's) place, as he wantend to see him on business. Frazer complied with his request, going unarmed, when, for unknown rea sons, he was shot and killed by Jackson. The act is regarded ns a cold blooded murder. Jackson fled to the mountain, after com mitting the ded, but haa sent word to the officers that he intends giving himself up in a few days. . Frank Woodard and Harry Renrdon left on last Wednesday for a hunting and fishing trip up the Blue. They returned on Mon day with their pack animals well laden with game of all sorts, from the ferocious ciunamon bear to the cooing wood dova having killed in the brief space of five days two bear, seven deer and thirteen wild turkeys, besides a quantity of small game, such as rabbits, quail, chipmunks and gotofros, of which latter engaging little aunimul Frank has a, very fina livo speci men, whose antics and peculiar ities can be seen at any time, in bis tic son's) parlors. The dirtiest man in the south west lives in Clifton. He fell in tbe flume accidently the other evening and tbe water below him became so thick that the large turbine wheel which runs the cruther was clogged to such an ex tent that it required three hours work from a gang of smelter men to clear it He was stricken with a severe attack of lumbago articu laris sorghum, as a result of his involuntary bath, and now he doesn't touch water, even as a drink. Tbe sight of an inoffensive piece of lnnndry soap makes him nervous, and a can of concentrated lye throws him into rpnsms, last ing n. seyere.

MERRICK'S MEN'S Copper mine owners are begin' giug to be grateful to the Calumet and Hecla Company for contract ing to sell about half their pro duct for the year at 10 cents a pound. At first it seemed to be a serious matter to the owners of the smaller mines, for one purpose of the sales was evidently to make soino of them stint down or mine copper for export But the Cslu met cunnot supply the demand for local consumption, aud as the other companies refuse to sen at. tue low price the market is stiflening. Al ready at the Metal Exchange there has been an advance to 10.05c for lako copper, and prices are very firm. Last year, under similar conditions, copper advanced to 12 cents. The more sanguine say that the commercial situatiou justifies hopes quite as encouraging for this season. N. Y. Times. One of our most popular and handsome young men, who by the way, is a gallant equestrian, pur chased the other day a magnificent Texas broncho, and was showing off his fine points to an admiring group of friends, when Capt Cut ter and Frank Barmtm happening to pass by noticed that the steed had one of his legs loose, a fact which the purchaser had overlook ed in tho hargain. As the injury was not a serious oue he was im mediately advised by Messrs. Cut ter and Burnmn to take tho animal, ns soon as possible to Jas. Si as, the village blacksmith, an able farrier, and have the leg fastened tight so that it might stand any strain that the rider might be pleased to put upon it The horse was taken to Mr. Sias who arranged the loose leg in a scientific and workman like manner, and now the young gentleman prances around this villajo on really a valuable animal H. C. Martin, the Morenci ter ror, spent several days in Clifton this week, and oue day having fill ed his skin about three-thirds full of liquid delight began to tell the religious editor of this sheet in a sort of off hand manner, that iu speaking of him, the terror afore mentioned, (if we ever had occas ion to do so) it would Lo a good thing for the integrity of our hide if we did it in a respectful manner, otherwise he would be compelled, in justice to his own dignity, to let a little religion or something else out of us by way of n vent in onr paunch," which hitter in itself is a good word, by tho way, he howev er, was kindly enough disposed toward ns to say that before letting our religion out he would givo us a cbanoii fo retract Now retract is another grod word we believe. but in connection therewith wo would say to Mr. Martin, and other terrors" of his ilk, that we don't! know the meaning of it fully, and would like to learn all abont it, und soiiie day when he fkels juicy enough to give ns a lesson will be at Lome. Mr. Martin it will be re membered is the gentleman who, some weeks ago, feeling in a play ful mood, thrust a reul rhnrp knife under the cuticle of a youug man named Mason, at Morenci, after which he galloped out of that enmp a few feet a head of Mason's re volver. M.rrsri M sttrr. Notwithstanding the deprecia tion in copper the production of the Detroit Copper Company con tinues undiminished. It is trne that the wages of the mine labor ers are not quite as high as might he desired, bnt there is consola tion iu the fact that no reduction is contempl.ited. The principal mines woiktxl lit present by the Detroit company are the Copper Mountain, Yniikie, Montezuma, Ityuenion and Arizona Central, the output of which, both in quality and quantity, continues as satis factory uh heretofore. Gordon McLean is minging foremau, and judging from tbe number of men and mines under his supervision he must have his bands full, but Gordon is equal to the tank. Work at the smelters is running 6uioothly. Tho foreman was called away recently by the serious ill ness of his mother, but as Mr. Church is thoroughly posted in all branches of the business, be as sumed charge of the smelters, and no inconvenience resulted.

The production is about 400,(XK) pounds per month or 13,000 pounds per day. Quite an improvement has been noticed in the management of the store since Mr. Fraissinet took charge. This is nothing more than should be expected ns Mr. Fraiss inet's reputation as a neat and thorough business maa is well known. Bill Wright is still on this side of the hill, foreman of the Detroit Humming Bird and other mines lelonging to the Arizona Copper Company. There is no falling off in the output of these minen, either in quality or quantity, although, of conrse. it becomes morn expen sive as the workings enlarge. Eil Merrio continues to boss tbe Longfellow. The mine is worked but not so extensively as formerly, and produces ns good ore as ever, and the old dumps furnish tons of excellent concentrates.
