The matrimonial fever is spread ing. -It is said that there is an other victim at the machine shops of tbo Arizona Copper Company.

He expects to lie gone about two months, and during his absence will visit the East Superintendent Russell return ed from Santa Monica last Thurs day with his family, who have been much benefited by their sojourn at the seaside. School opened Monday under charge of Mrs. Reardon. The at tendance was rather small, but it is expected that it will be doubled during the next week. Chas. II.

But few complainants appeared, principally stockmen, and these succeeded in getting as sessments reduced on the ground. of the taxes having been paid in other counties. Several communi cations wero received in regard to purchase of bonds, but only one bid, which, being for ho small an amount, was rejected. In tho communications received objection was made to the style and general appearance of the bonds. The treasurer has therefore been ' in structed to procure new bonds and to sell same to the best advantage. The rate of taxation has been placed at ?2 90 on the $100 valua tion, a reduction of ten cents from last year, an unwise reduction, ns at three per cent no mere than sufficient would be raised to meet the expenditures; therefore the ten cent saving is only apparent, as the county indel tedness will be increased that amount As.1 anticipated the examina tion of Deputy Sheriff Smith on tho charge of illegally branding Indian cattle, which took place last Monday before U. S. Com missioner Hughes at Tucson, re sulted in his being honorably dis charged. Messrs. Bolan, Crawford and Smith returned home Tuesday and judging from their appearance they must have enjoyed tho fiesta hughly. Tho Hon. George H. Stevens tood his departure Monday for Phenix. He will no doubt drop in to see his old time chums and take in the fiesta at Tucson before returning. Mr. J. A. Terrell, manager of the Gebbardt Cattle company, came down with Supervisor Boon Sunday, remaining a couple of days. Judge Patterson of your burg was also a visitor here. Some thought the Judge's visit portend ed an important event, but they are doomed to disappointment for the present, at all events The recorder was ready and willing to produce the document, but the Judge mado no effort to receive it. Come, Judge, remember the old adage, "Faint heart ne'er won fair ludy," and on your next visit interview the recorder, invest four dollars, and in after years yon will say it was the best investment you ever made. Mrs. Pomeroy, wife of our County Treasurer, is at present so journing at Bowie Station, where 6he will reside until Mr. Pomeroy secures a residence here. Miss Jessie remains at Silver City to attend school. We of this valley have reason to be thankful. The rainfall has been ample to ensure good graz ing, tho second crop is above tbe average, there is no sickness to spenk of throughout the valley,and the weather at present is simply delightful. Gila. . Solomonville, Sept, 4, 1887. Carlisle Items. John McGann, well known to the people of Clifton and the mid dle Gila, committed suicide at this place Saturday morning last at 11:40 o'clock by placing the muz zle of a Winchester in his mouth and firing it off. His head was fearfully shattered by tho dis charge and his brains scattered over the floor. H has been driv ing the company's six-mule team for the last two years. He drove the team around to the front of the store, then went in, bought a box of cartridges, stepped into the warehouse and committed the rash act. Mr. McGann was from Baltimore, and has been in this vicinity for a number of years. He seemed to fear nobody and was an old stage driver, having driven the Lordsburg and Clifton coach when the Indians were bad along the Gila river, and when no one else had the courage he would mount the boot and put the horses through in double-quick time. He was a good man with a team and the company regarded him as tbe best driver they have ever had on the road. Our camp is about to come to the front and will be the best camp in this southern country. Witb the sixty-stamps which will soon all be in operation, and twenty more to be added again, with a new 10-stauip mill at East camp on the York mine, owned by Davunport which will be com pleted in a few weeks, we are sure to have a boom this coming winter. The 5 stamp mill on the Rain-in-face mine at East camp is now in operation and doing good work for the boys. Messrs. Brown and Sheeban deserve much credit for having gone on empty-handed, and have proven that the mine' is A No. 1, and that the mineral can be taken out, after professors failed to do it for them. Go ahead I boysr professors can't always see tluvugh tho quart wiiL a!! thtir CHARLES MERliICK, EL PASO'S GREATEST CLOTHIER, :-: TAILOR, :-: HATTER, FURNISHER AND SHOER, Sole Aoknt in El Paso fob the Celebrated DUNLAP :.: HATS, :.: AND :.: BURT :.: & :.: MEAR'S :.: SHOES.

We are moving along here in the even tenor of our way, await ing anxiously the coming of the paymaster to break the dull mo notony. Two of our young men, realiz ing that it is not well for man to be alone, have resolved to take each to himself a better half Licenses have been secured for the marriage of Mr. George Strub to Mrs. Dominga Elliot and Mr. George F. Kilmer to Mrs. G. Morris. By George, how these fellows are to be envied, es pecially Strub. There is another marriage on the tapis, but as it has not reached the license point yet 1 can not give it away. You know there is many a slip 'twiit the cup and the lip. Mrs. Louisa Rupkey, proprietor of the Graham House, who has been visiting relatives in the Ara vaipa fur the past two weeks, re turned home Tuesday much bene fitted by her trip. Miss Frankie Bnrdick, of your town, assumed the proprietorship of the hotel during Mrs. Rupkey's absence and right well did she bear her honors, managing the business like an experienced hand. 1 understand that Miss Frankie returns to her home Monday next. I regret to record this, as she bus endeared herself to almost every oue here by her kind and sympa thetic manner, her obliging dis position and her intelligent and ladylike deportment. It was thought at one time she might be come a resident here, but the fates, I trust, have decreed something better for her. Messrs. Burt and Howard Dun lap of the Aravaipa have been rather regular visitors hereof late. They are both nice young gentle men, intelligent and entertaining, but as we are about to lose the at traction I presume that their visits in the future will be like angel's few and fur between. Burt, I be lieve, is about to take a trip East to see his folks, who live in Ohio and whom he has not seen for several years. Trust he will have a pleasant trip and return safely. Mir. Cutter, of tlA firm of Cutter & Leahy, returned from a visit to El Paso, whore he went to con sult Mr. Hampson relative to the San Carlos beef contract, which Mr. Hampson fills this year. Mr. Cutter will superintend the issues and is now absent at San Carlos making the necessary arrange ments. District Attorney Bolan and Sheriff Crawford dropped down to see us this week. They are both looking well and contented and correspondingly happy. The ice machine does not pan out as well as expected, but this is due to unexperienced hands at tempting to run it Next year, wit h the experience already gained we expect to do better. Occasional. Thomas, Sept., 2, 1887. Man Carlo. Items. Two companies of infantry and two troops of cavalry are stationed here, while military circles an nounce that six troops of the Gth cavalry are on their way here. No little excitement was caused here Friday night by the march ing of forty soldiers to the guard house, who kept the peace while Frank T. Porter, chief of scouts, placed shackles on the limbs of the Indians implicated in the last shooting, in which Al. Sieber, ex- chief of 6couts, had his leg broken. By the way, Mr. Sieber is improv ing nicely and able to sit up in a chair a greater part of tho day. Miss Chapel, daughter of "V. W. Chapel, Indian trader, is at home from her visit to Globo, looking much improved in health. Mr. Montgomery is in San Fran cisco purchasing goods for V. H. Horton, Indian trader.

There is nothing of very great im portance to the outside world trans piring here. Tho Board of School Trustees, con sisting of B. B. Adams J. II. Brown and W. B. Foster, held a meeting lately and appointed Mr. Adams as Clerk of the Board. They also selected as teacher for the ensuing year Miss C. W. Castlio, a young lady resident of this vicinity. Judg ing from appearances Miss Castlio will bo a decided improvement, in deportment at least, on the teachers of last year. This place has the finest school building and best appointed school in the county, and should have an excellent teacher, which I am sorry to say has not been the caso heretofore, but think we have caught on at last. School will open on or about the 12th inst. Mr. B. B. Adams, who has been rusticating in tho mountains for the past ten days, just returned home. If he keops on accumulating flesh as of late he will bo out and injured financially, as the Colonel's clothes will cease to be as good a fit a3 one might dosire, thereby necessitating an extra expenditure.
