A Drunken Row which Culminated In
Paissno's saloon, on Bailey street,
was the scene of a murder last Wednes
day morning about 4 o'clock, the
victim being Tadeo Herrera, aged 24
years. The name of the man who did
the killing is Hilario Del Ci, also a
young man. They had been drinking
together all night, and the murder was
the culmination of a drunken row over
who should treat between two men
who had apparently been friends. It
began with words and Del Ci knocked
Herrera down; then as he lay on the
floor the assassin pulled a pistol and
shot, the ball passing through the
intestines, causing death in 24 hours.
There were a dozen or more men in
the barroom at the tiinev and an effort
was mads to separate the combatants
before the shooting, bat without avail.
These facts, which are stated concisely,
were brought out in . detail at the
Coroner's inquest held Thursday be
fore Justice Benson. r The verdict re
turned .was that Itei t -ira PiinijJ to His
death from a gnnsb-rt wound at the
hands of Hilario Del Ci. After the
shooting Dei Ci escaped tlt'roiifrb. the
hack door of the saloon and made his
way on horseback towards Adamsville,
near which place he was captured by
Charley Foreman and M. M. Hickey
after an exciting chaseof nearly three
miles. A preliminary examination
was held yesterday before Justice
Benson, and the prisoner was; com
mitted, to iail to await the action of
the grand jury without bail.

When you find a person who has
tried Simmons Liver Regulator you

Beaufort, S. C.,. says: "I prescribe
Simmons Liver Regulator and know it
to be a first class liver medicine."
Last Tuesday .lose Mendez was acci
dentally hhot and killed at Harrinsrton's
from Florence. TLos. F. Weedia, Fred
White and Chas. Douglas had gone out j
there to take down a boiler and pump, j
Men, Mr, Weedin was removing to
when a shot was heard in ths house,
and a moment Jlater a little girl came
running out of the door with a pistol
in her hand. Going into the house the
gentlemen named found Mendez on the
floor, shot through the bowels and in
the agonies of deaths . Just how it oc-
cured will never be known, as the little
girl can give no rational account of it,
and the victim never spoke after the
shot was fired. The body was taken
to Mesa where it is supposed an inquest
was held.
Prof. F. J. Netherton, late superin
tendent of public instruction, was
thrown from a horse at Mesa last
Wednesday morning, crushing his
skull, and died from the effects of his
injuries in the afternoon. From what
can be learned of the accident it ap
pears that Mr. Netherton, who has re
cently embarked in the butcher busi
ness at Mesa City, with a number of
men went out to gather and drive to
Mesa a bunch of cattle for the shop.
The cattle were being driven into town
when several of the animals turned
down a side road and Mr. Netherton,
on his horse, dashed after them to bring
them back. When the cattle stopped
.and turned Mr. Netherton 's horse which
is trained to such work, stopped sudden

It hasn't been warm enough this
season to deprive Tempe and Mesa peo
ple of all energy, though Florence folks
may feel somewhat different; and have
made no preparations for recognizing
the nation's birthday, Mesa will dem
onstrate, under the auspices of the Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union,
that their patriotic blood still bubbles,
and the same organization in Tempe
will provide entertainment for its citi
zens. In addition to whieh the Tempe
Union is holding mass meetings and
discussing "Child Study," and having
mothers' meetings, etc. The Florence
Union must look to its reputation and
not fall too far behind.
Through the Eastern States there is
a strong movement for having a , new
style of Fourth of July celebration.
Under the lead of the church confer
ences and the Temperance Unions,
there are to be held in many places, re
ligions," patriotic and temperance serv
ices combined; These services are to be
used especially to itupreas npou the
minds of our young people the neces
sity of sober patriotie, -christian citizetir:
ship, if our .government is to eadure.
This movement is to. be commended,
and should be adopted universally, and
as this Fvinrth falls upon .Sunday no,
better .im'e for. beginning could be
had. The churches should take the
lead in educating in such sentiments as
patriotism and temperance. As Miss
Willard says, "Let us. have less gush,
less spread-eagleism, less jingoism and
fireworks, and more of the love which
lays, down the life and seeks the best
good of the object loved."
Frank Dysart, ex-Treasurer of Gra

where he had been to attend a meeting
of the Republican Central comnlittee,

in place of Colonel McCord. Frank
wants to be Judge Doan's clerk in

Rev. L" "y. "Whittemore returned
Wednesday from his eastern trip and
reports having had a Bplendid time.
He kindly kept the readers of the

his bright and entertaining letters, for
which we desire him to accept our
thanks. The reverend gentleman's
many friends and admirers are glad to
welome him home.

Prof. Joha A. Church, the well.
known mining engineer, arrived in
Florence last Saturday and spent
several days in examining different
mines in this neighborhood, visiting
the Stone group of copper claims, the
recent wonderful discovery made by
C. D. Henry, and on Tuesday, in com
pany with Sheriff Truman and C. B,
Keppy, he wen to Goldfield, returning
the following day, when he left for
Los Angeles. Prof. Church expressed
himself as greatly pleased with some
of the properties examined, though of
course he can form no definite opinion
until his samples are assayed. The rep
utation of Professor Church as a min
ing expert is second to that of no man
in the United States, and upon his re
port much depends. For many years
he was superintendent of the Tomh-J
stone Mill and Mining company, which
at one time shipped as hig-h as $1 SO 000

A Sunday Fourtii of July.
. From tlie St. Paul Pioneer Prs.)
4 I'lus Fourth of July couiicgj ou Sun
day tkis year, the sugyostkm Is made
that, instead of relegating ail observ
ances of the holiday to the following
Monday, only the noisier and merrier
of the customary demonstrations be
thus postponed, and that in every
church the customary services be so
varied as to give the whole the cast o
a patriotic religious celebration. Let
the church buildings be decorated with
flags and flowers. Let the music con
sist mainly of patriotic airs. Let
cornet players and . brass bands be
pressed into , service as well as the
organ. Let thS: Declaration of Inde
pendence be read, and let laymen pos
sessed of the gift of oratory supple
ment with addresses the remarks of
the pastor. American liberty had its
birth in the churches of the old thir
teen colonies. The churches of old
New England were the rallying places
of the revolutionary patriots. Of late
years the churches have to a great
degree segregated themselves from the
purposes of citizenship and patriotism ;
and the segregation has not been good
for the country. Neither has it been
good for the churches. The Christian
citizenship leagues recognize this fact,
and would bring the churches again
into harmony with the best aspirations
of citizenship, The Sunday Fourth of
July affords a splendid opportunity for
proclaiming the identification of Chris
tian citizenship with every patrotic
purpose, and it should not be nr-
