A Lunatic Causes Kxcltemcnt by Claiming to Ito the Kinanuel Church Murderer. In tho county jail of Santa Cruzo Cala., is confined "William F. Cariott who says ho murdered Blancho Lamont and Minnie "Williams in Emanuel cIhu oh last April. Ho gave himself up to tho chief of polico as a dangerous ciiminal, a fow nights sinco. Tho next morning ho was discharged as a harmless lunatic. Then ho went to the shcrilf to whom ho confessed his guilt as tho perpetrator of tho Emanuel church murders. To tho district attorney ho told a story that at first seemed plausible, but when Barrett went into details of tho crime, the inconsistencies convinced his auditors of his perfect innocenco and complete insanity. Barrett, who was formerly a waiter in a San Francisco restaurant, says ho saw Durrant and two girls on a street car, and admiring Miss Lamont and Miss Williams ho boarded tho car u tho hope of making their acquaintance. Tho trio alighted at Emanuel church, Barrett following. Durrant and Miss Lamont ontered tho chinch, followed still by Barrett, while Miss Williams waited outside. Bairott says ho hid behind a pow. Detecting an odor of escaping gas Durrant went to the bolfry to stop tho leak. Barrett says ho seized and attemped to assault Miss Lamont. To stiflo her screams ho choked hor and sho suddenly dropped dead. To silence Miss Williams, Barrett says ho then stabbed hor with a knifo from tho restaurant. Meantimo Durrant had been overcome by gas and was so dazed that ho did not sco Barrett carrj'ing the bodies to tho belfry. Barrott says ho did not wish Durrant to bo hanged for his crime and that ho was sure ho would eventually to lound out. Barrott resembles Durrant in personal appearance He has worked hero as a waiter, but is periodically dissipated. Ho persisted in his statements, despite a sovcro cross examination. Ho will be examined for insanity. . Wanted to Die. r Fred White, a former citizen of Utah, who camo from 'that state to Prescott last Novombor, who is said to bo a very sober and man, but who has grown despondent on account of being ci up by rheumatism, contemplated ending his sfTcring and helplessness by committing suicide. With tho intention of taking his life by shooting, ho bought a pint of whiskey and drank it at one sitting in order that it might ncrvo him to do tho desperate deed, but not bejng accustomed to drink, tho fiery liquid threw him into convul sons, and when ho was found by neighbors ho was floundering around on tho floor, while a pistol lay conveniently near him. Restoratives, administered had tho desired effect of restoring him to consciousness, but ho said ho wanted to die, and that if ho got over this, it would only bo a fow days until he would dio anyway.

THE TUG CHILDS Fired on mid Captured by a Kevcmic Cut- ter. Last week tho Revenue Cuttor McLean fired on and captured tug Geo. W. Childs, off tho coast of Florida, which is said to have been purchased by tho Cubans for filibustering purposes. Soon after tho Childs left Koy West the Collector of Customs, upon information of the Spanish Consul, the McLane to ovortako the Qhilds and bring her back to port. It is lumored that a deckhand by tho name of William Lynch, who was shipped at Jamaica, had furnished tho Consul with information to tho effect that sho was bound on a filibustering expedition. Lieutenant Hay, of the McLean, says that signals were set for tho Childs to heavo to, but that no attention was paid to them, and seeing no chanco to overtake her, two solid shots and ono shell wore fired before sho camo about. Sho was boarded by a crow from tho cutter, with Lieutenant Hay in command, who brought her into port. Captain Swain, pf tho Childs, is very indignant at having been fiied upon, and states that ho knows of no reason why such action should have been taken against him. He says that ho was propel ly entered from his trip from Jamaca, and while some slight irregularities did exist in his crow list, it was owing to tho fault of his brokers at Phil adclphia, and had been settled at tho Custom House at Koy West. He sailed from Jamaica on Juno 12, and after touching at Point Salina and uanahona for repairs, he sailed for Key West, where ho arrived on tho 3d. He was ordered to Tor- tugas to be fumigated, and after re maming thero seven days ho came back to Koy West. Ho said yesterday about noon he clcaicd Ins tug fpr JSow York, hav ing first surrendered his register and taken on tho enrollment and coasting and that shortly before leaving tho assistant engineer reported to him that he saw a party that offered Lynch some money, and ho was informed by Lynch that it was 200, to corroborate tho filibustering story. Lynch pretended to tho Captain ho told tho ho know nothing about filibustering. Tho Captain sent ono deckhand, shipped at this port, to find out the party. IIo returned, stating that Lynoh was then talking to tho Spanish Consul. Tho affair has greatly excited tho Cubans, and thero aro threats of assaulting tho Spanish Consul. in Camp -Meeting.

Jones, of Graham county) sot forth a strong brief in tho appeal case of Wentworth, ap pellee,svs. Harwood, appellant, or in the appeal of the case which involves the act of the last Legislature concerning the 'Classification of Counties." The question involved is "Can an enrolled bill, duly signed, by tho presiding officer of both houses of the legislature, bv' tho Governor, and de- positcll inttho office of the Secre tary of th 9 Territory, be impeached by! the- journals of the Legislature! or y'101' purported evidence, as sought py appellant in this case." Mr. Jones, in a very ablo and ex haustive brief, full of sound argu ment and good authority, makes a .strong plea and one that can bo nothing elso than cflectivc in the negative,. of the question.

The Credit Due Arizona's Surveyor General. The great Peralta fraud, which is just now exciting large attention was long ago thoroughly exposed and its ridiculous claims laid bare by General Royal A. Johnson,- of Tucson, who was surveyor general of Arizona under Garfield. General Johnson made an exhaustive study of the entire subject, uncovering all of its concealed frauds in a report to tho commissioner of the land department. Upon tho fact of this report all subsequent investigations havo been made and tho wholo claim declared by tho court a fraud. It was a great pieco of work, and required perscveranco and courage together tho facts and make such a report. As it was not a direct demand of his official position, and was done in tho interest of tho people, it is still more worthy of special acknowledgement. Those who now claim tho credit of this iniquitous claim seem disposed to ignor the laborious and intelligent work of General Johnson. Yet, without it, in all probability, they would even now havo failed. This man Iteavis, of tho Peralta claim, made his first appearance in tho far west in 1870. lie married a Mexican girl, whom ho claimed to bo tho solo hoiress of a perfectly imaginary person, whom ho himself invented, one Don Miguel do Peralta, baron of Arizona, to whom tho king of Spain, Ferdinand VI, in 1758, had granted a tract of land 75 miles long and 225 broad, lying in tho present Arizona territory. Ho forged Spanish and Mexican documents and seals, and retained Toscoe Conkling, Colonel Colonel Broadhcad, of St. Louis, and others as counsel for his claim. An eastern journal now gives great credit to Attorney General Olnoy for defeating this claim, which would havo driven 50,000 peoplo from their homes. Tho Inter-Ocean desires to do justice to tho attornoy general, but wo only affirm a plain fact when wo state that the claim was defeated not through the management of tho United States, but upon tho ovidenco procured, by great labor and often privato expense of tho then young surveyor general of Arizona, now a privato citizen of Tucson. The Intir Ocean mentions tho matter in tho interest of true history and to do simple justice to a faithful and intelligent official who sought to do his wholo duty Inter-Ocean. HI J. T. Owens has just received ono of tho largest assortments of men's hats ard caps ever brought to tho valley at one time. You can got any size, color or shape you desire at a very low figure.

FOND OF LETTER H. Men Use It for an Initial In Names When Any Other Would Do. "It's a peculiar thing,"' said the knowing- clerk In a hotel which is noted more for its hospitality than it is for its inquisitiveness into the character of its guests, "it's a peculiar thing the fondness that the average man lias for the letter II as an initial. Now, I don't suppose that there are more middle names beginning with II than with any other letter M or It or S or B but nine men out of ten, if they are in doubt about a middle initial, decide on II," quotes the New York Sun. "Now, my middle initial is W, but for every letter I get, except from people I know well, that has my initial right, I get three in which it is put down II. It's very seldom, too, that you'll find a man with strength of character to leave out the middle initial of the man he's writing to if he doesn't know it, so he clapb in an H and lets it ge. There seems to be a prevailing superstition that a man isn't just what he ought to be unless he has a middle name, and that the chances are very strong that that namcbegins with the eighth letter of the alphabet. "Now, here's another instance: Cast your eyes over this page of our register., That is mostly late guests who drop in here late at night and sign names other than their ow n. See the result: 'Charles II. Jones.X'John II. Smith,' 'George II. KobinsonA 'A. II. Brown,' 'F. W. Brown,' andso on. There are ten names on that oiic page the middle Initial of which is III Now, that letter isn't any easier to write than any other letter; it certainly isn't any more ornamental, and I can't ae that in any respect it has an advantage over the rest of the alphabet. Yt the human race sticks to it with a fidelity w orthy of a more important cause. I'd like to have some wise man till me PASTIJKE TO KENT.

Clipped and Condensed From Late Exchanges. PASSING EVENTS OF THE WEEK Happenings Throughout the Territory Kdlted With the Scissors. The blowing away of tho new porches from the insasne asylum by tho recent Salt River valley Cyclone is calling forth ciiticism of. the management of the board of control from the Phcnix morning papers. Tho porches wcre,it is" claimed, constructed in the most flimsy and unsubstantial manner-imaginable. As this cyclone destroyed a great deal of other prop, city, including houses, orchards ' etc., tho safe courso for the board of control to pursue to avoid future cyclones and criticism is to dig cyclone cellcrs, both for themselves and tho territorial lunitics, leaving tho Phenix morning paper peoplo on tho outside to be blown away Courier ' -)o(-A peculiar thing about Navajo marriages is that after the event the mother-in-law and son-in-law must never look at each other in the face again. Thus these ignorant savages have solved a problem which -bothered civilization for ages. Coconino Sun. -M- Tho Mesa Free Press suspended publication for a week; the force, from editor to devil, having been overcome by "that tired feeling." -)o(- Tho total assessment of Navajo county foots up $1,110,003,07. Next year this will bo increased very materially. Thee were only 59,000 sheep returned in this county, on account of tho assessment being made so late.

The fifth ono which was put into tho corral developed rabies during the night, frothed at tho mouth, ran about the corral in a frenzy, and horned other cattle. When Louis Walli-man wont to tho corral tho following morning tho cow charged him, and ho shot her with a six-shooter.

Thursday of tho last week the physicians performed tho operation of bone grafting, using a bone from a dog selected for that purposo, tho operation being entirely successful. Theic aro two ways of this operation; ono beipg of graft in tho bone of tho animal while alive, of courso it, and the other method, as was necessary in tho operation yesterday, to kill tho animal and transfer tho bone. Oasis. -M- At Tucson last weok tho curious spectacje was witnessed of a devout company of the Sisters of St. Joseph and a few male believers, marching in procession carrying banners bearing tho imago of the Virgin, a crucifix, and lighted tapers. About 4 o'clock every morning the little band of supplicants marched to tho first bridge cast of tho Santa Cruz and back to tho convent. Tho wholo scene was not only impressive, but tho chanting and responses were really pretty, tho voices sounding sweetly in tho fresh morning air. It cannot bo said, however honest the indention of the good ladies, that this means ofprOdusing rain is always successful, but in case of failure and tho sky refuses to respond, the tutelary saints aro then nailed in trees and aro lefl to blister in the sun till their pervcrseness, ceases and the rains descend to slako the thirsty earth, when they aro again takon down and restored to their places of favor in the hearts and hearthstone of the devout and faithful Silver Belt. -M-News was received today from Bisbeo that four men were executed near Bavispo in a manner similar to that of Tribolet, on a charge of being implicated in the Jailing of arrospector for no other apparent cause than to get possession of his mino, which is supposed to be very rich. The name of the pros pector killed is not known, but he was an American citizen. No further particulars could be learned.1 i Prospector. HI . has bon' M WkiinP2g:L; mn j 's Ky tm. W&. &? S ' .
