Methodist Episcopal Church, left this
week for Needles to resume his pas
torate at that nlace. Rev. York made
many friends while here. '
Rev. Dood is expected home about
October 1st. and until then there will
be no regular church services. Sun
day School however will be held every
Sunday morning at ten o'clock as us

services of a minister are needed.

during the term to which he has been
elected. During the last session of
the legislature the salary of the gov

56500. and Colter and Sutter were
both members of the senate that pass-
edvthe law. This, on its face, would
.appear as a bar to even the candi
dacy of either Sutter or Colter.

to be heavy. One tank captured a
battery of field pieces, five machine

FOR YAVAPAI MEX.
Sheriff Cohenouf received a tele.
' am 'Tuesday mormon from Yavapai
County Officera 'ratifying him to ap-
1 u-hei .Vand hold Anastacio Grajol.i,
a Mexican, whohal'cK.ot and probably
fatally wounded' another Mexican at
Yampai Station tha't morning. The
oiticers have been keeping a sharp
lookout for this man but up to the
present, he has 'not been taken into
custody. We have'been unable to as
certain whether the wounded man has
died or is recovering.
Detals appears as follows: That
Grajola had approached the Mexican
vhom he shot and 'requested money.
This being refused and upon his back
being turned to Grajola, he was shot
in'thc back with a 22 rifle, the bullet
pasting entirely through and lodging
just' underneath the skin of the chest.
The ball' punctured one lung in its
passing, but the Doctor who was call
ed in attendance, dressed the wound
and said thathe wouldTecover.
The name of the Mexican, who was
shot, we are still unable to learn.
ihe entire affair took place at the
Camp of Mexican Woodchoppers 'in
the timber about one mile north of
Yampai Station on the Santa
about sixty miles east of here.
