PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. , FLORENCE, ABIZONA.FEBRUAHY 15, 1888. Mr. A. T, Colton returned Tuesday . from Tucson. Try the new barber, opposite the Tunnel Saloon. J. t. Powell, the beef buyer, came over from Tempe Tuesday. Hon. W. M. Griffith was in from his ranch at Drippinjf Springs this week. O. V. Angulo was confined to his bed a couple of days this week with illness. County Recorder J. M. Ochoa was at Casa Grande this week on official bnsi- Sam KaUenstein, representing a Tue Bon grocery house, was in Florence again this week. Friends of .Mrs. Chas. E. Perkins re gret to learn, that she has been quite ill since her arrival at fiila Bend. The Bull Dog mine and mill, at Gold field, are running steadily under the management of Hon. A. J. Koran. The ease of J anna Walker vs. V. H. VTalker, before the Supreme Court, was submitted last Monday, and an early decision is expected. A snow-storm in the Black mountain drove home Judge W. H. Benson and J. P. Welles. They couldn't prospect without snow shoes. Mr. P. S. Cleveland, of Calais, Ohio, and his son, our esteemed fellow-citi-aten, Mr. H. J. Cleveland, of Arizola, were in Florence last Tuesday. In the cases of Thos. F. Weedin and J. J. Frasier, before the Supreme Court last Monday, the affidavits of F. M. Doan, Esq., were ordered submitted. Dr. J, E. Conley, the dentist, will re main in Florence until February 23. All tbosA desiring first-class dentistry work done would do well' to call on him before that time at the residence of Mrs. Michea. 2c 'Judge Owen T. Bouse and District Attorney F. M. Doan, of Pinal county, both Knights Templar, took the de grees of the Mystie Shrine in Phoenix last Monday evening. Mrs. J. A. Marshall, of Phoenix, wife cl Hon. J. A. Marshall, member ef the Eighteenth Legislature from Maricopa county, is visiting friends In ' Florence. Mrs. Marshall is a sister of J. J. Frasier, one of Pinal County's most prominent citizens. Sheriff Truman returned from Salt river last Sunday. He came in by the wy of Gold field, where he has some men employed in development work on the Superstition mine. Over 1500 feet of work has been done on the property and good ore is being produced. Judge Bethune has filed bin opinion at Tucson in the ease of Louis Wolfley against the Territorial Auditor in the mandamus case to compel the Auditor to pay the warrant for $7,000 ordered in his favor by the last legislature. The decision was against the complainant. The City Council of Chicago has passed an ordinance forbidding any family to possess more than six dogs ; and the wonder is that the poor people submit to it. Here in Florence, if such an unjust law were attempted to be enforced there would be a "riot" sure enough. A citizen of Florence was arrested in Phoenix the other day, charged with vagrancy, and brought before Police Jndge Jobs. The prisoner pro duced a check for some $3400, signed ly Goldman A Co., being for cattle just sold by him, whereupon the Judge released him without a fine. The TBiBCJtit regrets that a citizen of Florence should be caught in Phoenix with no more money than that. If the police had caught some of our wealthy citizens, they might have made a haul. ' ' 'HonVBen Goodrich writes as follows from Los Angeles, under date of Febru ary 10th : "The report that 1 advised the taking of forcible possession of the water by the lessees of the Keuilworth ranch is unfounded. I did nothing of the kind. I did represent the bank in procuring a judgment against Davis, Sloan and others, foreclosing a mort gage the bank held on the Kenilworth ranch that's so ; but that's the end of my eon n oct ion with it. Courts are the only proper plaees to settle those matters," Sheriff E. E. Johns, of Bradford county, Florida, arrived Tuesday with the necessary papers for Charles Frank lin, alias Bichard. On examining J. P. Cummins, who was supposed to be the man wanted, Mr. Johns found him to be an old schoolmate, and not the party indicted for the murder of Matthew King, although his description fitted " exactly. It was merely a case of mis taken identity, and Cummins was at once released from custody. The Florida sheriff departed for home Wednesday, and if the fistic carnival comes off near El Paso, he proposes to get that much out of his western trip anyway. Mr. Johns is a pleasant gentleman and made many friends during his short stay with us.. Attempted Jail Break Frustrated. Jesus Lares, who is sentenced to hang on April 3d next for the murder of John Doll, made an unsuccessful at tempt to escape from jail last Sunday night. By some means he s?retd himself outside the steel tanks when the other prisoners were locked up for the night, probably on top of the cells. About 10 o'clock night guard John Harris heard a noise which aroused his suspicion, and calling Jailer Frasier, they came to the conclusion it was best to summon farther assistance, as they could cot tell how mauy prisoners were in the corridor. Accordingly Sheriff Truman was notified, and he and three others repaired to the jail. Those sta tioned on the outcide could distinctly bear some one digging away at the brick wall. Jailer Frasier then went inside with a bulls-eye lantern and armed with a six-shooter, where he found the condemned murderer Lares picking away at the outside wall with the handle of a stove shovel and a case knife. He had removed three courses of bricks of tuesaven that comprise the the wall. Frasier ordered him to hold up his hands ; but it was some little time before Lares surrendered and re tired to his cell. It is safe to say the gentleman will not again have such an opportunity afforded him to escape. The officers are deserving of much credit for having frustrated this at attempt. Lares is a cool and desperate fellow, and did not betray the least nervousness when caught. Railroad News. Now that the building, of the Hud son reservoir and dam in the box can yon of Salt river is next to an assured fact, no little impetus is given to the question of building a railroad into this valley. Parties recently from Phosnix state that the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific are both making plans for commencing construction at once, and the result will be that Flor ence will soon have two roads instead of one. The efforts of the Southern Pacific to secure coal near Solomonville have proven a failure so far, and the eyes of railroad men are now directed to the coal fields of Pinal county, on the San Carlos Indian reservation. An agent of the Interior Department is now on the ground, and will soon make his re part. That it will be favorable is confidently believed. The presence of Government engin eers at the Buttes, making a survey of the immense reservoir site at that point, is another reason why the rail road men are so active at this time. Taking all these things into con sideration, the outlook for Pinal county was never so bright as at this time. True, times are dull at present ; but it is always darkest just before dawn. People who are leaving here now are making a mistake, and those who are coming in are taking advantage of the opportunity of a lifetime. Advertised Letters. The following is a list of the letters remaining uncalled for in the Florence poitoflice for month ending January 31, 1836: Abbott, Lelah, Caslllas, Ysabel.

H. Durham, of Hunton, and his friend Ed. Lyall, of Globe, were in town Wednesday. W. R. Stone and Will F. Cooper went up to Silver King Wednesday, and are expected home to-day. Quite'a number of Florentinians are making preparations to visit Phoenix during the carnival next week. . At last accounts Miss Ada Peyton, who has been very sick at Tempe, was much better. Her mother, Mrs. Thos. F. Weedin, is still with her. George W. McFarland, an old-time Arizona printer, dropped into Florence yesterday, and is helping out on the delinquent tax list, which is to appear next Saturday. A number of Florence people re ceived invitations to the wedding of Abraui S. Humphries and Miss Marie Afong, which took place at Honolulu, on the 6th of January. The bride is represented t be one of the richest heiresses in the Hawaiian Islands, and quite a beauty besides. It didn't take llumplirie.j lonjj to eattyi on,. Incendiary Fire. Thursday night, shortly after 8 o'clock, flames were seen rising from the large frame stable of Colonel Robert Williams in the western addi tion, and soon the entire building and its contents were destroyed. The building was stored to its fullest capacity with lumber, doors, windows, stoves, scales, pump, etc. Nothing was saved, as everything' was dry as a tinder-box, and the fire had gained, con siderable headway before it was dis covered. The loss is in the' neighbor hood of $700, upon which there was no insurance. The fire was evidently the work of an incendiary, as there was no chance for it to have caught from accidental means. A Mexican woman who lives in the vicinity first discovered the fire, and says she saw two men run ning away from it. There are well founded suspicions against the parties, and if they do not make themselves scarce they are liable to serve a term in Yuma for their crime. This is the second iucendiary fire in Florence in the past year, and the people are becoming alarmed. Colonel Williams had just made arrangements to use the lumber in the improvement of another house he owns in the Western addition, bat the fire bugs anticipated him, and now the work will not be done. Eeally, the property belonged to Mrs. Williams, a kind and generous lady who has not an enemy in the world, and the loss falls on her, and not on the Colone, whom it was evidently desired to spite. Pursued by a Demon. How many suicides, think yon, reader, have been committed by persons driven dis traught and hunted to their doom by the demon of chronic ill health? Countless. For instance, we know, do we not, that hy pochondriasis is a monomania a sort of minor madness produced by chronic dyspep sia ? Again, insomnia, or sleeplessness, often a restdt of the same cause, culminates in a derangement of the reasoning faculties. It is, therefore, of momentous consequence to prevent the arrival of dlxease at its chronic phase, when 'it daily and nightly scourges the sufferer to a dangerously uncertain goal. No medicine known to science, as a means of arresfinethe maladies towhich it is adapted, exists equal to Hottter's Stomach Bitters. Among these complaints arechrouie indiges tion aud insomnia, kidney and rheumatic ail ments, constipation and liver trouble. Ap petite is Improved by the Hitters, theIood fertilized, and bodily (ubtsnce and vieor in creased by it, Kid Thompson to Hang. The supreme court of California has affirmed the judgment of the superior court convicting "Kid" Thompson of the crime of wrecking the Southern Pacific passenger train at Roscoe, two years ago, in which the engineer and a tramp were killed. Thompson was sentenced to be hanged by Judge Smith. The case was appealed on the ground that two separate offenses, viz: train wrecking and boarding the train with intent to rob, were charged in one indictment. Religious Notice.

Florence, February 14, 1896. On receipt ot a telegram last Wednesday that Miss Mabel Stratton was quite ill at Shultz, her mother, Mrs. E. O. Stratton, and Mr. ThosJ F. Jones left immediately for that camp. A letter was received yesterday by Mr. Stratton that Miss Mabel is recovering. A distressing accident oceurrei last Saturday Roy Guild was out shooting cats with his little 22-ealiber rifle, when young Arvizu, 8 or 9 years of age, came within range aud was shot in the shoul der. The wound was not serious, and is healing nicely under Dr. Brockvray's care. No people suffer so much from physi cal disabilities as those whose business requires little or no muscular exertion. The lack of exercise causes the liver to become sluggish and the result is con stant Constipation, Indigestion, Bill-, ousness and Sick Headache. To pre vent this take Simmons Liver Regula tor ; it keeps the liver active and makes one's condition as comfortable as those who have much exercise. According to the Star, it costs the S. P. R. R. Co. more to keep'hobos off trains than it would to carry them, and cites cases where Btops had to be made every mile or so to put them off, requiring three tons more of coal be tween Los Angeles and Tucson than would have been used on a straight run. There is also some wear and tear on train men, who are frequently done up in more ways than one in keeping them off trains. If Sullivan, who was. brought here Monday and placed in the County Hospital, is a fair sample, there is considerable wear and tear on the hobos also,, to say nothing of the expense the county is put to in repairing the wear and tear. And then the further expense should be considered of trying and perhaps hanging some of 1 rasu for in.urder.. SIMMONSX GOOD FOR EVERYBODY Almosteverybody takes some laxative medicine to cleanse the system and keep the blood pure. Those who take SIMMONS Liver Regulator (liquid or powder) get all the benefits of a mild and pleasant laxative and tonic that purifies the blood and strengthens the whole system. And more than this: SIMMONS LIVER REGU LATOR regulates the Liver, keeps it active and healthy, and when the Liver is In good condition you find yourself free from Malaria, Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick Headache and Constipation, and rid of that worn out and debilitated feeiine. These arc all caused by a sluggish Liver. Good digestion and freedom from stomach troubles will only be had when the liver is properly at work. If troubled with any of these complaints, try SIMMONS LIVER REGULATOR. The King of Liver Medi cines, and Better than Pills. S-EVERY PACKAGE- Has the Z Stamp in red on wrapper. i. 1L Zeilin & Co., Phila-, Pa, Stand Together. From the Albuquerque Citizen. . The eighteen delegates to the Na tional Republican convention from the three territories of New Mexico, Ari zona and Oklahoma will constitute an element able to command some respect and consideration, if they stand together and work as a unit; but if they go to the convention divided in their choiee and fa.voricg two or threj different candidates aud as many different lines of policy, " their influence will not amoit to enough to command any re spect. For this reason there ought to be a thorough understanding in ad vance, and the matter ought to be con sidered and discussed before the terri torial conventions are held, so that there may be a conce.-t of action from the start, and that our delegates may all go to St. Louis knowing just what they are going to do when they get there. Everyone knows the difference in ef fectiveness between a company of well drilled troops and an unorganized mob, and there will be just the same differ ence in this matter. The first duty of onr delegates to the national conven tion ul be to work for the interests of thtse territories, and if they go there well organized and determined to pull together to that end, they can accom plish all that our people hope for, but if they work at cross purposes all their strength will be frittered away and nothing will be accomplished. Hence there should be a.distinct understand ing among the Republicans of the three territories before the conventions are held, that delegates are to be appointed with this end in view, and we suggest that the Republican papers of the ter ritories take up th.3 question and bring it prominently before the party." Tom Jones, former proprietor of the International in Nogales, but now in business in Los Amreles, will probably soon take charge of the Montezuma Hotel at the former place. The prop erty was recently sold at Sheriff's sale under an execution against George Christ, and was bid in by Shroufe & McCrum, holders of the judgment. At the expiration of the time for re demption if the money is not paid, and there is no likelihood of it Tom J ones will again become a citizen of Nogales. He is one of the whitest men that ever struck Arizona, and has a host of friends all over the Territe ry It will be a welcome change in the management of that fine hotel, When one reads of the water troubles here and there in this territory, as well as elsewhere, he naturally concludes that water causes more trouble, .es pecially in this arid country, than whisky does.

After many months of waiting Hilly Moore, the Tonto Basin cattleman, will get his reward for the capture of Kid Thompson, the Roscoe train rjb'jcr. The case, briefly stitel, was: In February, 1894, a Southern Pacific ex press train was wrecked at Roscoe station near Los Angeles. The deed was done by unknown persons, for the apprehension cf each of whom Wells, Fargo & Co. and the railroad company offered a reward of l,C0O. Through the information of an as sociate, one Etzier, the crinr.e was fastened upon Alva Johnson, a rancher living near Roscoe, and Kid Thompson. The latter fled to Arizona, and after a battle in the rocks on slopes of Mount Reno that lasted all night, was finally, with a young satellite, captured by Moore and a party of cowboys. The prisoners were taken to Los Angeles, where Thompson was convicted. Then followed a struggle for the reward money, in which Moore's claim was contested by Lawson's detective agency, which claims to have secured the evidence that led to the capture. Judge Van Dyke rendered the de- "Dirty Bill." Everybody in Tombstone remembers Wm. A. Nash, formerly editor of the Daily Tombstone. He is now Faber pusher on the Berkely Times and, the following is a "drive" at him from the Hay wards Mail: "If the President really wishes to scare away that flying squadron he should permit the Florida militia to attend to their sweet potato crop, order out Bill Nash of Ik-rkely, arm him with a 5 jag and let him 'went.' His habitual maltreatment of the queen's English in time of peace is a guarantee of the reluctance of the British fleet to get within his reach." Phoenix Gazette. Subscribe for the Teibuse, the only newspaper in Pinal County. While the Supreme Court was in ses sion this morning listening to an argu ment Judge Bethune's chair suddenly gave way with him, precipitating him to the floor. In falling his neck struck a portion of the broken chair, quite badly injuring him. He was unable to remain in the court room and went into the chamber, where Dr. Helm, who had been called, attended to his in juries. Phoenix Herald. Indian Agent J. Roe Young of the Sacaton Agency arrived this morning and has been in consultation all day with Director General Hatch of the Carnival. Col. Young has his Indian village all ready for the Carnival and will give the people of the east an op portunity to study Indian life that has never before been afforded anywhere off a reservation. Phoenix Herald. Albert T. Colton, County Surveyor of Pinal County and Deputy 0. S. Mineral Surveyor, was in Mesa last Saturday night, accompanied by Arthur P. Davis of the hydrographic branch of the U. S. Geological Survey. At Florence they found that in a canal of given depth and width much more water flows than is in accordance with all well established formulae, and they visited the canals of the valley to test whether the same is true here. Mesa Free Press, The Star most respectfully calls the attention of the boards of superviso'-s to section No. 451, page 137, of the Ari zona statutes, which requires each board to have published in a newspaper of general circulation a detailed ac count of the-expenditures of each year, the same to be made up by its clerk at the close of each year. The object of the law is to inform the taxpayers what expenditures have been made and for what purposes, and also that they may know how the county stands financial ly. The required statement for Pima county ban not yet been published. The people would like to see the law observed. Tucson Star- riaal CtftBtj IHfiius 4 Loa Ao-ialin. Florence,, Pinal County, Arfzosa.
