The jury was out about four hours, not be ing üble to agree at first whether he should hang or not. Insanity was the plea of the defendant and it was the cause of considerable contention between the lawyers, those representing the territory evidently not being pleased with the retainer received by Thos.

Expert Making a Thorough Examination of This Section. The smelter situation remains practically the same as last week, James Edgar Black, president and manager of the Southern Smelting company, still being in the field examining the different mines and prospects near here, but having lit tle to say, evidently preferring to keep his own counsel until a de cision is reached. Mr. Black, in company with George B. Upton and George E. Sanders, has been in the field for the past ten days and has visited the Vulture, Black Rock, Blue Tank, Slim Jim, Wick enbnrg, Rich Hill, Weaver and Octave districts. In a few days they will depart for the Colorado river and Bill Williams districts, making extended examination of the mineral deposits in that section, with a view of constructing a rail road tapping that rich section if conditions warrant it at the pres ent time. If Wickenburg secures this smelter, the ensuing activity will soon make this one of the leading districts of the territory. A 250- ton smelter will employ a great many men, and this, in connection with the number of mines it will take to furnish the ore necessary to run the smelter, wil 1 soon cause Wickenburg to become a city of several thousand. MORRISTOWN MATTER. Happenings in and Around Hot Springs Junction. We have been having rain down our way and since the clearing up of the skies Jack Frost has been getting in his work, The boys around the Junction are going about with their hands jammed in to their pockets up to the elbows and their backs humped like a double-decked camel. William Richardson is employed at Hot Springs for a few days put ting in the machinery at that place. Mr. Richardson is a good machin ist as wed as a first class pipe fit ter, _ * It is astonishing what an effect a little cold spell has on Morristown. Nearly everyone in town and vi cinity are receiving supplies of a warming nature. Mr. Anewalt and familv of Pres cott are guests at the springs. It is reported that Johnnie Wil liams and Mr. Burke have made a rich strike, the ledge being of a good size and running the entire length of the claim, The ore horns from S2O to SIOO a ton all along the ledge. The property is in the Red Pieacho district. The freight for Morristown has been so large the past week that Mr. Menum, the agent, has been forced to sleep in a battery jar. It is rather shaky sleeping, but nec essity knows no law. It is getting the time of the year to put a lock on your chicken coop door. The cold weather is driving the migratory population down the line and they always manage to go through a town slow enough to allow their fingers to freeze on to something that doesn’t belong to them. Mr. Caton, the section foreman, had his men filling in around the depot during spells between show ers Tuesday It was quite badly washed out by the heavy rains that visited this section in August. Messrs. Bruce Cummings and Franklin have just finished sink ing a well at the junction of the Hot Springs and Red Pieacho roads. They contemplate building a station there in the near future. W. A. Ensign and family of Phoenix have moved their house hold goods to Morristown and will reside here in the future. Mr. Annatage of the Hercules Copper company has returned from the Val Verde smelter, where he has been having copper ore treated, Charles Cathedric is stopping at Morristown for a few days. Ho has some good claims in the Red Pieacho district. Shovels and Picks. New Strike at Ardath. The Ardath Mining company is working several men on its prop erty south of town. Some very rich gold ore was encountered the first of the w T eek at a depth of fif teen feet in a new shaft being sunk. At one time a great deal of rich ore was taken from this mine and aras traed, giving good results. A five stamp mill is located on the prop erty but has never been used as yet, IN DAYS GONE BY. i A Tale of the Lord’s Prayer and How Pete Kitchen Won the Money. Many years ago a party of five gentlemen were playing a social game of poker in Charley Brown’s saloon in Tucson, Pete Kitchen of Sonora fame, ex-Mayor Maish of Tucson, George Stevens, then sheriff of Graham county, Captain Jeffords, agent of the Chiricahau Indians, and R, N. Leatherwood, the ‘‘Little Giant,” composed the party. They played along with varying success until the sweet music of the church bells, calling the faithful to early mass, diverted thej.r thoughts to religious matters. Pete said that when he was a boy and attended Sunday school “hack in the states” he could recite every verse in the New Testament. Maish said that he always did his business according to the Golden Rule. Stevens volunteered the in formation that he knew but little about the Bible, but had always heard it highly spoken of. Jef fords, wishing to show' that he had some knowledge of the subject un der discussion, made some remark about Jonah swallowing the whale. The Little Giant, who bad been educated for a preacher, seemed amused, but said nothing. Maish remarked that he did not believe there was a man in the party, ex cept himself, who could repeat the Lord’s Prayer, and he looked Pete Kitchen squarely in the eye when he said it. Pete ciacked down five twenty dollar gold pieces with the remark that he would wager that amount that he could say it “the first dash out of the box.” The money was promptly covered, and Pete was told to “proceed with the deal.” Pete seemed puzzled for a moment, hut soon regained confi- 1 deuce, and started off very bravely as follows: “Now I lay me down to sleep; If I should die before I ’’ “Hold on, Pete,” said Maish, ; “the money is yours. I always thought your religious education ; had been neglected. This round i is on me, hoys.” The Little Giant said nothing, but there was a faint smile around the corners of his mouth as lie bit off the end of a fresh cigar.—-Copper Era. HOEY INDICTED. Will Be Tried On Two Charges Before i U. 5. Trial Jury. The United States grand jury at Tucson last Wednesday indicted 1 ex-Collector of Customs Wm. Hoey on the charges of taking bribes and aiding the entrance of Chinese into the United States unlawfully. The : trial was started but has been post- 1 poned until Monday. . j Cyaniding at the Vulture. Supt. Geo. W. Sanders of the ' New Vulture Mining Company was 1 in from the mine Thursday pur- 1 chasing supplies. About a dozen men are employed, working now on the extensions of the old mine yet retained by the company. ' The cyanide plant will be put in ; operation in a few days and will be run at full capacity for several ' months or as long as'the water sup- : ply lasts. The fabled pipe line and the cars of machinery which have been shipped so many times, according to various territorial and eastern papers, have never reached Wickenburg and we are beginning , to lose faith in the good intentions of the Vulture Gold Company. , They have shown great activity in disposing of the stock but have done nothing at the mine. We un derstand that their bond expired yesterday, but whether it was taken up or not, we do not know. We are glad that the bond has expired as the Vulture Gold Company will either have to do something or let others. As I Was Saying. A newspaper, whose columns overflow with advertisements of business men, has more influence in attracting attention to building up ; a town, than any other agency that can he employed. People go where there is business. Capital and la bor go where there is an enterpris ing community. No power on earth is so strong to build up a town so v'oll as a newspaper well patronized, and its power should be appreciated. The man who overlooks his town paper injures < himself by injuring his town and town sm enJ oh n Wanamaker. That is just what we have been trying to impresss upon the mer chants of this section, John. THE FINAL CHAPTER. 1700 Volts of Electricity Percolates Through the System of Czoigosz. Auburn, Oct. 29. —At 7:12:30 this morning Czoigosz, the mur derer of President McKinley, paid the life penalty of his crime, in the electric chair at Auburn prison. While in the chair Czoigosz made a short speech in which he declared lie was not sorry. He showed the nerve of a dazed beast, and did not at any time break down. Three shocks with the current of 1700 volts were given the prisoner before he was pronounced dead. The murderer was brought into the execution chamber at 7:10. He was immediately seated in the fatal chair. He had previously been prepared for his execution, being dressed in a loose shirt, a pair of trousers and socks. The straps were adjusted and as Warden Mead raised his hands the current was turned on. At 7:17 the war den announced, “Gentlemen, the prisoner is dead.” The body of the assassin will be buried in quick lime and guarded until consumed. And thus the curtain falls on a tragedy that made a nation weep. GILBERT GLEANINGS. A Summary of the Local Happenings in that Thriving Neighborhood. Mr. Hinkley, the San Francisco expert who bonded Jack Gunnell’s mines, arrived in camp Monday. C. J. Carmicheal, the traveling man for the Martinez Mercantile company, was here Tuesday and sold Gilbert & Rowe a nice bill of goods. He also sold Mr. Bone cutter a small bill of clothing. One of the best rains of the sea son fell here this week. The Denver Mining and Devel opment company has no black smith shop nor water, but the Crea tor has provided the country with miners and prospectors who have saved up enough money to dig wells and buy the necessaries with ■which* to Jo their development work without imposing on the good nature of their neighbors. Chas. Dorr was in town this week purchasing supplies. Johnnie Devine passed through here Monday from the Crown Point mine on his way to Skull Valley, where he is interested in some very promising prospects, from which he contemplates taking some mon ey very soon, Gilbert & Rowe have, struck a very nice body of rich gold ore in their National Bank group of mines near Octave. The ore as says up into the hundreds. F. X. O’Brien was in town for a short time this week. A good opening for some promis ing young man: —Gilbert & Rowe’s cook is going to Phoenix in a few days to get a divorce. According to the laws of Arizona the ’property will be open for re-location. James Dunn came in on today’s stage. He has organized a com pany known as the Buckhorn Min ing company with headquarters at Phoenix. 4 He expects to put men to work opening lip the mines by the middle of this month. Treblig. The Sahauro Group. Richard Lloyd, holding the bond on the Sahauro mine, has returned from Colorado Springs, and in company with George C. Hewitt is making a close examination of the property with a view of deter mining their future plans. Asked concerning their plan of develop ment, Mr. Lloyd replied that he had nothing to say for publication at present. Mr. Hewitt is an ex perienced mining engineer and a capitalist, and the probabilities are that extensive work will be done on the claims within the next few months. Messrs. Lloyd and Hew itt went out Friday to examine the claims Mr. DeWitt bonded from the Mohnike brothers last spring for $25,000. Mr, Lloyd stated that if Wickenburg was in Colorado and had the showings that are here it would have a population of 5000-- within sixty days. Sunday Services. Rev. C. W, Tarr will hold ser vices in the school house Sunday * evening at 7:30, to which everyone is cordially invited. Rev. Tarr is ' intending to make Wickenburg his I home and will move his family L here from Los Angeles in the near future, m Number 17.
