Interesting Letter from Mrs. G. L. Pear son from Her New Home in the Hawaiian Islands. As the Reverend and Mrs. G. h. Pearson have so many friends through out Arizona who will be glad to hear from them, we know the Tbibunk will be pardoned for publishing the follow ing extracts from a private letter re cently received: Honolulu. Feb. 28.1808. We embarked on the Australia from Kan Francisco and after a week on the .water lantled in Honolulu Oct. 12. 6 , ... . i terestlog as traveling ou laud. it. is i ao monotonous that one cannot heir1 j outlet tired tired and wisu for laud. I think there could ba nothing' better for people desiring a rest, fur they wou'.d ;be obliged to rest. Fortunately none of us suffered with sea-sickness. Kind people greeted us at the wharf and took us to their homes, so we felt that, if strangers, we should soon be among friends. The sensations, how ever, of being foreigners are peculiar to say the least, and when I think of it now it gives me a sort of an out-cast feeling. I really did not know I had so much patriotism until we came here. Perhaps when annexation occurs I'll feel more at home. Speaking of an nexation, you will want to know what we think of it. We are convinced of one thing, that it will be a very good thing for these islands. But you will ask, "How do you like it?" Well, we like it first-rate, and I believe that as the weeks pass, we like it better and better. We have bad everything to cause us to like it. The people have received us most kindly and have done everything in their power to promote our comfort and pleasure. We live in a large, cool, airy house, in the same yard as the church and near to town. The house is so large that beside having all the room we need the church rents three rooms. We hare a Japanese woman who does all the work but the cooking. This gives me more leisure than I have bad in many years. However, we can not work as hard here as in a colder climate, and I find that the claims of church, society, friends and, family keep me well occupied. We "have ac cess to a large public library and I hope that we will both make good use f it. Our health since we have been here as been excellent, none of us having been sick. Here "continual summer doth abide." I smiled at a report in the morning paper, "last night was very cold, the thermometer went down to 52 degrees above zero." The trees and grass are evergreen, the flowers bloom constantly and we never need a fire. The temperature is very even, the nights being warm, with no i'nereasing cold toward morning. I suppose the summer will be much warmer than now, but the people say that then the trade winds blow constantly and so keep it quite cool. Honolulu itself is a peculiarly built city. The business part is homely the streets narrow and crooked and the houses old and plain, but as you leave that behind and get upon the plain or into the valleys, the streets widen and the homes and yards are very beautiful. Every time I fro anywhere I find something new to excite my won der and admiration. I wish you could come here for I know you would espe cially enjoy the climate, the people, the scenery, in faet Honolulu itself. Onr church relation here is peculiar. As you are aware, the missionaries ' the Congregational church came here prior to the '20's and christianized the islands. Their descendant"! have practically grasped everything busi ness, government; school missions and churches. There is a large Central Union church, which in its polity is Cougrcgatiooii 1, but its membership is composed of all denominations. Until a few years agp it was the only church here, now there are the Methodist, the Christian and the Episcopal. I mean churches for white people. There are many other churches native, Chinese Japanese, Portugese, Catholic and Mor mon churches. Onr church is only three years old. We have about sixty members, residents in the city. They are of the middle el ass of the people- mostly mechanics, some marines. They are exceedingly devoted, ki.id and liberal. We enjoy them very much, but find it difficult to draw anything like a crowd our way. However, I feel that we must not be discouraged. Since we have been here tha congregation and Sunday school have increased one-half. We expect to grow slowly, but surely and are looking to God to show us the way People take life easy here. Schools close at two o'clock, the Btores at five, and on Saturdays many of them at one. The government has a brass band which gives public concerts three or four times a week. The people love music, and besides these concerts there are many given by clubs and different societies. However, I must close and leave a little space for Mr. Pearson. I suppose he will intimate that I haven't left him anything to say just like a woman. At present he is attending to his duty as cnapuun of the senate. Hoping to hear from you soon and with regards for yourself and husband, I remain Your friend, Ann J. Peabson. ."ust as Mrs., Pearson says, very little rt-uaaiw, vo De saia. I'.ut, of course, -when all other things fail, I can talk about mvstlf. ' I wish tesev that I am I an artist now, have learned the photo graphic business. Behold some of my work! These pictures are a little off in color, but then it is not every artist that can produce such colors. I can also say that I have just added to my previously long list of accomplishments the fact that I can ride a wheel. We most sincerely trust that this will find you and your husband well, prosperous and happy. We are very anxiously waiting for news from America. Our last was in reference to the Maine disaster. You can guess our eagerness to know the results of the investigation. Kindly remember us to friends aud accept our best wish and prayers for your present and eternal well-being. G. C. Peabsow. , The Klondike Killing. (From the Willcox News. Wm. Wall, who made such a record at gun play down at Klondike on the 13th inst., killing one man and wounding four others, is now in jail at Solomonville, having been held by Judge Payne under $10,000 bonds to appear before the grand jury. Later advices indicate that Mr. Wall had severe provocation. Frank Hitchen, the man who raised the disturbance, had struck him several times and finally knocked him into the passage behind the bar of the saloon. Seeing a pistol there, Vfiill seized' it and be gan shooting. It was not Ed. Iirew who w-is shot in the back but a man io hi eaiiiog. VVa!l regrets the kill ing of i.Uy, who was oue of Uisfrtonds. The tiCTnori Method of Dealing Horsathieves. With Lordsburg Liberal.! About a month ago Mrs. A. F. Mc Donald, wife of Bishop McDonald of the Mormon church, while alone in her store at Bound Valley, about fifty miles from Casas Grandes, was killed and the store robbed. The Mormons were aroused and a party took the trail. The El Paso Times reports that the Mormons found that the murder ers were a couple of men from the "Black Jack" gang and that last week the Mormons found the camp which the American officers and Mexican army had been hunting for so long. They made a dash on the camp and when they captured it all of the gang, nine men were dead. This is the most plausible story of death to the "Black Jack gang that has ever been told. The Mormons have a way of going af ter outlaws and getting them that is quite convincing. Nine years ago this spring some Mormons went after ho'fSe thieves in this county, and the story has never been printed. It is now given not as news but as history. Horse thieves had been bothering the Mormons in Northern Mexico, and a posse was sent after them. One after noon la May, 1889, Wm. Suggs and Fred Myers came to the Chasa aud Me Cabe ranch in the Animas, watered and started north. About dark four Mor mons appeared at the ranch and in quired for those men. They said they were liorsclhieves and wanted to ar- t!-,etn. Mr. Chase said that in all probability the men were camped at a viirilnin a few miles north of the ranch. The Mormons asked Mr. Chase to go, with them as a guide. Tbey thought that if they could get to the men at daybreak they could arrest the men before they woke up, without any trouble. Mr. Chase, Bud Moore and Wm. Stetson went with the Mormons. They started iu time to get to the wind mill before daybreak. The leader of the Mormons instructed his men just how to jump on to the horsethieves, provided they found them asleep, and arrest them before they could get their weapons. As soon as it commenced to grow light all were watching the plains for a sight of the camp. It was discovered a few hundred yards from where the watchers were waiting. They walked quietly over to where the men were sleeping, covered with their blankets, the Mof mons ia ad vance. The leader went up on one side of the sleeping men and one of his com panions on the other side, they careful ly drew down the blankets to see if they were the rihtmen, and as soon as they saw they had found the horse thieves, instead of attempting to ar rest the men the Mormons commenced shooting. The two horsetbicves were dead before they had time to awaken. The Mormons took the stolen horses, told Mr. Chase and his companions that they thought there would be no more trouble from these men, and started back for Mexico. To say that Mr. Chase was surprised at the way the Mormons "arrested" the horse thieves would be to express it mildly. Mr. Chase went back to bis ranch after picks and shovels and buried the men where they were killed, wrapping them in their own blankets. There was no more horsestealing in that sec tion of the country from that time un til the "Black Jaek" gan turned oat. IS A FAKE. Cha. P. Mason Does Not Think Much of the Klondike Country. From the Phoenix Herald. Steve Bailey has just received a let ter from Chaa. P. Mason, who served Pinal county in the legislature last term. Mason is now in Seattle, where he is watching . for a favorably oppor tunity to reach the Klondike. He does not speak very well of the country from reports he has received from dis gusted gola seekers who are returning daily much wiser in experience and poorer in health and wealth. The fol lowing is a synopsis of his letter : Seattle, Marco, 17, 1893. Friend Steve: lam now stranded in the much-talked-of city of Seattle, the Mecca of the world, to which the insane and gold-crazed people of the world are flocking in thousands. The city presents the appearance of a vast fair, representatives of all nations and every degree of life, financial and so cial, are to be found here the mission ary and priest wending their way to the forbidding fields of the frozen north, that they may spread light and sanation among the natives the fes tive bunco-steerer and sure-thing men are here by the score, and rich is the harvest they are reaping,, and great is the experience that the unsophisticated tenderfoot from the fflrmin itt9 is laying up for future r;fevenee. It comes hi'h, but to make a successful Klondike!- thev must have it. The wires are kept hot to doting fathers and trusted friends to forward more of the neeiHul that they may continue their journey. The town was wide open for awhile everything went, but Just before election everything was closed down but will be rnnning again in a few days. 'Tis contrary to law, but the gamblers' ticket won and tbey are making preparations to open up bigger than ever. I here met quite a number of Arizon ans, Major Schwartz, "Shorty," hack driver. Will Cox, Charlie Ewing, H. C. Davis, the little man who used to play cornet in the Palace, and others. Kim ble, who used to work for Guild in Florence, is here ; came in a few days ago. These are all that I have seen from Arizona, but there are doubtless others. The people are crazy. Every boat that leaves here, and there are twenty-six steamships carrying from 150 to 1000 passengers each ou the run, are loaded to the guards. These run to Skaguay and Dyea, besides there are nine steamships running to Copper river, besides a fleet of sailing vessels. Many are returning disheartened. There is much suffering at all these points Skaguay particularly ; they are dying like sheep, from 7 to 15 daily. I learned this from parties who have re turned. Lawlessness abides and many have their money and outfits taken forcibly f ro'.n them. Next year will be the time to go, if at all. By that time soraethirig definate will bo learned of the country and transportation ques tion aud routes will be better under stood. I will go next year if every thing turns put as as is expected.. DaUon nnd Atwood are both here. They "both inquire for you. Frank is credited as being worth $100,000. Dal ton is also doing well. I guess, though not keeping pace with Frank. I see them but seldom as both are very busy as is every business man in Seattle This Klondike fever was a God-send to the city, as tha town was about gone in before the rush commenced. Now they are coining money and rent is way up in the figures. Sincerely, Chas. P. Masok. Ask Your Doctor what effect alum has upon the stomach.

THE- Cowardly Band of Outlaws Long' Sought by United States Troops i Wiped Out by Mormons Nine Stiffs. El Paso (Tex.,) March 20,MThe notorious "Black Jack" gang of out-' laws, which, for years, has defied the ' United States and local authorities of the Southwest, has at last been wiped out, and its career of crime, brought to a close. It remained for the aveng ing ang-els of the Mormon Colony near-' Casas Grandes, Mex., to seek out the' rendezvous of the band in the almost inaccessible Sierra Madre Mountains, and to carry death to its members. The news was brought from Casas Grandes to-day. February 23, Mrs. A. F. McDonald, a, members of the Mormon community air Bound Valley, forty miles east of Casas Grandes, was murdered by two mem bers of the-gang and her "store looted. -The avenging angels of the Mormon' Church were commissioned; to hunf down the murderers, and they did their work well. ' Sunday, March 0, they discovered the retreat of the gang at a point in the moantains, fifty mile? from- Round Val ley, and ut daylight had the camp com-' pletely surrounded, As sjon as the' camp begin to stir the firing began, and in a short time not one of the gang, remained alive. A party of American prospectors came upon the camp next, day,, and found nine bodies stiff in. death, and afterward learned from the. Mormons the manner of their slaughter:. The "Black Jack" gang of train-robbers was the most desperate and sue? cessf ul that ever operated in the South west. Among their crimes are the looting of the town of Solomonvillet. Ariz., and the murder of the postmas ter there ; the holding up sf trains on the Santa Fe Pacific at Bio Puerco,, K. M., and at Grant's Station. At the latter points trains were held up at two different times, the most recent being: ' ffve months ago, when if was reported that the robbers secured $39,006: The United States authorities have made two expeditions into Mexico in pursuit, of the band, but were never able to- locate their hiding place. Dont join a dont worry club. Don't try not to worry. While contentment is a pleasing virtue, the people yoia know who are contented would be bet ter off if they worried more. Absolute contentment and indifference to the possible troubles of to-morrow wtlf land any one in the poorhouse. The cow dotsn't worry, neither does the elam ; but people are built to worry ; and it was intended that the should. On the other hand, if you wory rauch, it wilt land you in the insana asylum. It is the insane asylum on tha one hand and the poor farm on the other. The point is to worry just enough to keup ont of both of them. Atchison lilob No man, old or young, black or white,, can cut a (S150 splurge on a'40 a month salary, nor properly support a cham pagne appetite on a lager beer incoma and keep his hands out of other peo ple's pockets. It has been tried several hundred thousand times, and has proved a failure every time.
