THE COMMUNITY CAST IN GLOOM
He Wrote a Letter to hl rnrenU Tolling
Them of his Intention to Ileturn Home.
Tho sad intollogcnco was rcceiV'
od bv Mr. A. II. Bennett, at 4
o'clock Thursday evening in tho
shapo of a telegram from J ohn Y ,
Eoborts, health officer of tho hos'
pital at Nogales, Arizona, that his
son Frank had died oi
at 6 o'clock the samo morning,
This sad nows was a shock to tho
entire community, as Mr. Bonnet,
only tho previous day, received a
lottor from his son, stating that he
would bo homo Tuesday noxt with
out fail, ho also stated in his letter
that tho folks at home should not
wory about him as ho was entirely
out of danger, but considered it ad'
visablo to remain in Nogales sovor
al days, and thus avoid tho possl
bilities of bringing any germs of
tho dread disease homo with him.
Ho was confined to tho hospital
just twenty days, entering it on
tho 23d of last month.
Tho physicians supposed Frank
contracted tho disease whilo engag
ed in playing tho violin for a Mex
ican feast, in Sonora, Old Mexico.
Franklin Bcnnot is a son of Mr.
and Mrs. A. H. Bennet, residing in
Layton. Ho was born in San Poto
county, Utah, in 1875, and on tho
4th day ol August would have beon
20 years of ago. From tho time of
his infancy ho has shown groat
musical talent, and before attain
ing tho age of five years played an
accordoon before an assembloge of
three thousand people! Even be
foro ho was largo enough to reach
tho pedals, ho played the organ
while his father would do tho tread
ing, and at tho time of his death ho
was able to play any instrument
placod belore him.
Frank was woll and favorably
known throughout tho entire terri
tory and his sudden demise is re
grolled by all. A father, mother,
a brother, William, and a sistor,
Annio, sorvivo him. Tho nows of
his sudden death has completely
prostrated tho ontiro family, who
has tho sympathy ot tho community
in their sad bereavement.

On Monday last while one of Wm.

In their attempts to catch

Chns. Farker, a Colored Masher of Bad
Charles Parker is a colored masher
employing such reprehensible
methods that ho is now in tho
county jail, destined to not less
than ten years in tho penitentiary
unless a half dozen indignant
who could bo easily wrought
up to tho point of doing it, should
mako a colored corpse of him
tho noxt grand jury can tako
notice of him.
Complaints havo boon mado for
tho past two weeks by a score of
littlo girls and young ladies of a
colored man who frightened them
by his conduct. Some times ho
would walk behind a girl and stroke
her hair, sometimes lay his hand
on her shoulder or attompt to put
his arm around her. At other
times ho would meet ladies on tho
street and horrify them by an exposure
of person, exclaiming, "ah
my darling." Many of tho ladies
insulted by this brute aro among
tho most respectable in tho city and
husbands, brothers, and friends
havo beon trying to locate him
that they might kill him.
On the night oi the fire on South
First stroot ho mingled with tho
crowd and thoro committed the
offenses which caused his arrest
Monday morning, tho name- of a
respectablo and well known lady
being signed to tho complaint on
which tho warrant was issued.
His preliminary trial took place
Tuesday. His impudence surprised
the court and spectators, and
when tho justice began reading tho
complaint he said: "Excuse me
boss; you needn't road it. I'so not
goin' to bo tried before yfcu nohow."
The arraignment went on, Parker
having been silenced by a throat
of punishment for contempt. Ho
was then permitted to take a change
of venue, and the hearing will tako
place beforo Justice Kincaid today.
The witnesses against Parker aro
all littlo girls and young or mar
ried women. The testimony will
be ol a most embarrassing charac
ter. Tho examination will therefore
be conducted as private as
possible. The usual and unneces
sary court attendants will bo excluded.
Beside tho officers of tho
court, the prisoner, tho witnesses
and the district attorney and the
prisoner's attornsy, if there should
be one, none will be present.
Indignation was so strong that
thoro was a great deal of ugly talk
of summary punishment, not exactly
as a means of vengonce against
the prisoner, but as a salutary
measuro against persons of his
class. Tho indignantion is not
wholly against him, but is accumulative
and had its origin in the
exploits of Brother John Davis.
Tho charge against Parker is aggravated
assault. Should ho bo
finally convicted ho might bo sent
to prison lor nve years or fined
82,000 or both. It would bo a good
bet that ho will got all the law allows.

Bis Hopes Were Shattered.
An oxcilod Mexican, who recently
arrived from the foot hills, was
in town on Monday showing to
every porson he mot some speci
mens oi volcanic glass. Ho
greatly olated over his find and
said it was coal of finer quality
than that found on tho reservation.
During tho day somo mining men
happened along and our Mexican
friend's effort to mako thom understand
that tho specimen was coal,
was amusing, and it was only by
a most convincing argument that
ho was convinced that tho glass
was worthless. Tho shattering of
nis nopes in this manner soomed
moro than ho could bear, for when
we saw him again ho was trying to
danco a hornpipe to the gurg.le of
the writer as it flowed through an

Harmon Fiok, of Patterson, a
naturalized citizon of tho United
States, has for five months been
confined in the villago Kohlen by
tho Kingstadt of Germany. Tho
causo alleged for tho imprisonment
is his liability to service in tho
army of his country. Ho is provided
with passports from tho Department
of State and Secretary
Gresham had received somo startling
information concerning the
continued imprisonment of American
citizens in Germany, but his
illness had prevented immediate

Davis Hothschild, a leading business
man, has rocoived a letter from
his brother Morris Eothschild,
who went to Germany last month,
stating that an attempt has been
made to force him into tho German
army. Ho was arrested and kept
in prison forty-eight hours despite
the fact that ho was a citizon of the
United States and offorod passports
and naturalization papors as proof.
Tho papors woro taken from him
and ho was sentenced to six weeks
in prison, at the end of which timo
ho will begin a three year's term

The abovo is tho language used
by a thoroughly exasperated China
man in .El Paso a lew days ago.
It soems that not long ago a
Mexican adventuress, who, by tho
way, is rathor handsomo, went to
Phonix and made tho acquaintance
of a wealthy Chinaman and forthwith
commenced to mako love to
tho Celestial and tho rate at which
sho mado lovo would stop a clock
and tho Chinaman fell a victim
to her charms and swore to become
her slave forovor. Sho told him
her father was a wealthy sugar refiner
and would supply all the
funds necessary for a grand wedding
and bridal tour. Thoy
engaged and the wedding was
to tako placo in El Paso. Tho girl
told tho Chinaman that the compact
should bo sealed by a ring,
and ho bought hor a 200 diamond
ring and gavo hor $500 in cash,
then they started for El Paso
After arriving there thoy put up at
tho Atlanta house and tho girl told
tho Chinaman to go to tho post-office
and there he would moot her
brother and then to procure a
licence. He went, and waited but
no brother arrived. In tho meantime
tho girl and her "brother"
skipped over into Moxico. When
tho heathen learned of tho trick
played upon him ho was furious
and followed them over the lino
and had them jailed, but when he
attempted to return to El Paso he
was arrested for not having a cer
tificate, and that is what brought
forth tho language quoted abovo.
Prof. Colo, of Phonix, identified
tho Chinaman and he was released.
But ho was mad. Ho don't want
to cot married now but ho wants
his ring and monoy. Ho returned

The Dance Given by the Athletic B. B. C.
On last Friday night, tho date
set for tho benefit dance of the Athletic
baso ball club, Jacobson's new
and elegant hall was filled to its
utmost capacity with dancers and
spectators from evory town in tho
valley. Tho celobrated Willcox
string orchostra was in attendance,
and at 9:15 opened the danco "with
a beautiful Spanish waltz, composed
by Prof. B. Pizzarro, leador of
tho orchestra. From tho timo of
opening until threo o'clock next
morning tho dancing was contin
ued without abatement and waltzes
schottisehes, polkas, mazuikas,
and quadrilles were' enjoyed
by those present. At 12 o'clock

crowd repaired to tho residonce of

elegant supper was served. All
those who partook of tho repast
speak in highest praise of the manner
in which Mrs. Madson entertained

a success both socially and financially,
and the probabilities are
that this samo club will entertain
their friends again in tho near future.
