Quite a long spell or wet weather
has prevailed this week. The rain

with more or less interruption until

the saloon door, which alarmed the
robber and he mrfe a "gun play" at
them, finally getng them into the
saloon when ho made a break and dis
appeared in the darkness. Mr Augus
tine Flores of this place was in the sa
loon at the time and witnessed the oc
currence. The Arizonan gives the
following description of the foiled rob
ber as made by one of those present
and, as the burglar was not masked,
it is probably quite accurate: "He
was about 5 foot 8 inches in height
and weighed from l.JO to 140 pounds
He had a red face, light colored mus
tache and hair, and presented the ap
pearance of a miner, having on a
blouse coat and a black hat turned
down in front. The man could not
have been over 22 years of age. He
pulled his pistol, from the front of
the pantaloons, and if there were any
scabbards they were under bis waiit

In last week's Enterprise a brief
mention was made of the latest stage
robbery on the Casa Grande road, from
the meagre details at that time avail
able. The particulars of the affair are
about as follows :
Last Friday Mr. J. M. Hurley, of
San Bernandino, Cal., who had been
visiting Florence to look after his
property interests along the lorence
Canal, started lor Casa Orande m His
buggy about eleven o'clock. He was
followed a little later by Mr. Ji. A.
Sax who drove one of his old stage
coaches, and a sull later the regular
stage left here for Casa Grande, car
rying the mail and express, but had
Upon reaching Oneida station, an
abandoned ruin where the overland
road crosses the present Casa Grande
road, about two miles south of the
Halfway house, Mr. Hurley was stop
ped by the highwayman and relieved
of about fifty dollars in money.
The enterprising robber wore a mask
cut from an old blanket, with holes to
look through. He covered Mr. Hur
ley s head with a piece of blanket and
kept him until his job was completed.
Mr. Hurley talked with the man
nd carefully noted the peculiarities of
his voice and speech.
In due-, course .Cjruine . Mr. , Saxe
came along and he too- wa.. held' a
pridouetf, but . apt roBfced, until the
stage drove up. T he driver was order
ed to throw out the mail sacks and ex
press box which were opened by the
highwayman and the money found in
them taken. He then made Dr: Hur
ley gather up the mutilated letters,
return them to the sacks and throw
them into the stage, when he bade
them go on and he disappeared in the
go soon as Casa Grande was reach
ed word was telegraphed back of the
robbery, and Under Sheriff Thomas
immediately dispatched two trusty
men to the place to trail, if possible,
the robber. The night proved to be a
stormy one and it was found to be im
practicable to follow a trail which was
soon obliterated by the falling rain.
The same night a stranger walked
into Casa Grande and remained there
all night. He had been an object of
suspicion there a few days before and
when he was pointed out to Mr. Saxe
he was at once positively identified
by him as the robber, by reason of the
clothes he wore being identical with
those worn by the thief. The stran
ger was thereupon arrested. In one
pocket was found $35 in gold and silver ;
in the lining of his hat a number of
greenbacks wete discovered, and in
the pocket of his vest a number of gold
coins were found. He gave his name
as Henry Miller and said he had a
wife in Texas. At his examination
Monday morning both Mr. Saxe and
Mr. Hurley fully identified bim as the
guilty party, and Justice Marshall
held him to appear before the grand
jury. He arrived at .the county jail
safely on Monday night in the custody
of Messrs. J. P. Gabriel, A. Price and
D. W. Cummins.
The man has been recognized as the
same paity that came up from Casa
Grande on Wednesday's stage waybilled
as Henry Brown. He got out of the
stiice at the stage office, took his - roll
of blankets and disappeared. On
Thursday evening he vieited Sam Bos-
tic sbsfber icp nd tM-eUtccdai-
ter wnicn no one seems to have seen
him until he again reached Casa
Grande, unless he was the party that
robbed the stage. He says he walked
all the way from Florence to Casa
Grande, which no well-balanced "man
with over a hundred dollars iu his
pocket would do.
There is scarcely the shadow' of
doubt that the right party has been
secured and it is believed the evidence
is sufficiently btrong to give him
good, long term behind the bars.
Notwithstanding the inclement
weather that was renewed near the
close of a very pleasant day last Thurs
day, the Thanksgiving ball given by
Florence Lodge No. 4, A. O. U. W.,
was well attended by the youth, beauty
and fashion of the place and a most
enjoyable time was experienced. The
hall had been tastefully decorated by
Messrs. Alex. B. Wolven and M. M.
Rice, with the emblems of the order
evergreens, and various other ap
propriate designs, and everything was
so well prepared by the Committee of
rrangements that not the least mci-
ent occurred to mar the pleasures of
Shortly after eight o clock a platoon
of Select Knights, in their brilliant
niforms, entered the hall and execut
ed some neat evolutions and went
through a short d.ill in the sword
manual, which was immediately fol
lowed by the grand march.
It was nearly twelve o clock when
the sumptuous supper prepared by
the ladies was announced, and a most
bountiful and toothsome repast it sure
ly was. Ihere was an abundance and
much to spare and none were slighted
n the least.
There was a marked spirit of cordial
sociality observed among the assembl
ed multitude during the whole even
ing and while all seemed to enjoy the
pleasures of the affair, they each strove
to add to the enjoyment of others.
Many elegant toi etts were;displaved
by the ladies and 'contributed to the
elegance of the affair. '.Asa, whole the
popular verdict was that the ball was
the most enjoyable of any occasion ' of
the kind ever before attempted in
A Fruitless Chase.
As stated last week, Messrs. Geo. R
Morse and W. P. Bamrick undertook
to follow the trail of the two Mexicans
that robbed the Casa Grande stage on
Thursday, the 29th ulto. They made
a thorough search but lost the trail
near the river crossing where other
tracks had obliterated it. The rain
on Saturday likewise made further
search useless and they returned on
Sunday night, with information from
the Indians that the robbers had taken
refuge in the black mountains across
the Gila river from Sacaton.
With commendable public spirit
Mr. J. a. Hull at once interviewed the
business men and soon made up
purse to assist in further prosecuting
the search, and on Monday morning
a posse consisting of Messrs. L. K.
Drais, W. P. Bamrick, W. E. Miller,
John Ruckelshausen, C. L. Scribner,
John W. Rannellsaud Harry Williams
started for Sacaton in E. P. Drew i

accoutrements for the expedition and

ties had safely reached a place of refuge
at lempe or beyond.
The Stage Robber Confesses. .
Henry Miller, alias Henry Brown
now held in the county jail charged
with the stage robbery on Friday of
last week, made a full confession of
guilt yesterday morning to Justice
C. M. Marshall, of Casa Grande, who
visited him in his cell. He says he
was out of money and could find no
work and he conceived the idea of rob
bing the stage, inspired by the success
of the California and other Arizona
men of that stamp. He told where
his gun and the masks were concealed
and Mr. Marshall intended visiting the
place on his return tnp to Casa Gran
de. The mystery is at last cleared up
and the guilty party will doubtless
receive his just deserts under the ter
ritorial law and the United Slates will
likewise insure his conviction for rob
bing the mails.

debrant's department were neither

SILVER KINtt NOTES.
Saturday evening, Nov. 17th Col.
J. J. Hickman, the eloquent Kentucky
orator, delivered one of his character
istic lectures before a large and appre
ciative audience at the school house.
His remarks were productive of good
results as was evidenced by the form
ation of a lodge of the Independent
Order of Good Templars with a chart
er list of 26 names. The lodge was
organized and instituted immediately
after the lecture with the following oi-ficers:
Chief Templar S. M. Bailey.
Vice Templar Miss Maggie Green.
Secretary J. D. Holland.
Assistant Secretary T. W McCon-
Treasurer Miss Robinson.

take of the excellent Thanksginng

ty with which the turkey, cranberry

have been equally enjoyed by the
Colonel's regular guests and boardirg.
The rain, which has been gereral
for the past week, has interfered rfth
the regular trips of the ore teamsand
in consequence the mill has been dos
ed down for several shifts. The sage

f Thanksgiving day was observed in a
becoming manner in Florence. The
stores, by common consent, closed at
noon and all business was suspended
d'.iring the afternoon. It was made a
day of general feasting and so far as
observation disclosed there was . very
little indulgence in strong drinks.
Heretofore, says the Examiner pro
posals for admission have been limit
ed to Dakota, Montana, VV ashington
and New Mexico. But it adds, it is
time to consider whether we may not
get rid at once of almost our whole
territorial system. Arizona, Wyoming
and Idaho have at least 100,000 inhab
itants each, and they have resources
vrhich will make it certain that they
will never be rotten broughs. If all
seven should be admitted there would
be no disfranchised communities left
in our whole country except Utah,
Alaka, the Indian Territory and the
District of Columbia.
Alden'e Manifold Cyclopedia
The issue of the tenth volume calls
attention to the rapid progress which
this popular cyclopedia is making.
The publisher promised the volumes
at iniervels of about a month ; he is
recently more than keeping his word. !
The volume extends from Cosmogra
phy to Derby, contains about 640
pages and about 100 illustrations,
handsomely printed and neatly bound
in cloth, all for 50 cents! The Mani
fold is more comprehensive than any
other cyclopedia except Cassell's
(which costs several times as much),
including an unabringed dictionary of
the English language in addition to
ordinary cyclopedia matter, and
though many of the articles are
necessarily brief, and some articles
surprisingly extended for instance,
Cotton occupies 26 pages ; Crannogs,
o pages; Creeds and Confessions, 5
pages ; Cricket, 4 pages ; Crusades, 6
pages ; Darwin and Darwinian Theory,
17 pages, and so on. It would be
strange indeed if a cyclopedia of such
great merit, published at a price so
surprisingly low, did not reach an
enormous circulation. A specimen
volume may be ordered and returned
if not wanted. John B. Alden, pub

About the 1st of September the
Governor of Sonora gave a commission
to Jesus fimbrea, of Moctczuma, to
march with a porty of five or six men,
well mounted and armed to find a
small band of Apaches who were seek
ing refuge in the mountains in the
eastern part of the district of Mocte-
zuma. These Indians had one of their
number called Jose Maria Elias as a
captain. Said Elias was acquainted
with a man called Santiago Duran, of
Moctczuma, and had told him on sev
eral occasions that he and his Indians
would surrender on condition that
their lives would be spared and pro
tected and that they were disposed to
work for their living. The Governor,
desirous of ending their wild career
has granted their request and sent
this detachment out with Duran to
close negotiations, accept their sur
render and bring them in. At last ac
counts they had located the Indians
at Satachi and were on the way to
make the final arrangements. We
trust they will be ruccessful as this

story, by Max Vander Weyde. Emily
Lennox's illustrated story, "Reggy Did

A man who arrived from Florence
to-day, brings the report that while
traveling along the road in the even
ing he was shot at by the robber. One
ball went through his hat and another
through his shoulder. The holes are
there to prove the story, but the hat
is badly powder-burned and the ball
that went through the coat was a very
accommodating one. It struck him
fair in the shoulder and then without
touching the skin it merely pierced
the cloth and passed along the inside,
over and behind the shoulder till it
reached a place opposite to where it
entered, and there it came out. Phe

much less tiard manual labor attached
to growing grapes and fruits thsu there

land is necessary to . secure ai good
livelihood. There is no place in the

profusion and excellence, as m the
Salt River which, we believe, m the
future will be given up almost en
tirely to this branch of , agriculture,

cords of our crops, the truth of the
adaptability of our soil and climate in j
this respect, and time and labor will
develop the industry to its fullest ex
tent. We cannot hope to secure the
the largest profits, however, until our
orchards are graded and our products
sufficient to secure, investment of cap
