The small boy was happy yesterday when the circus band-wagon paraded the streets, crowded with the gaily uni formed musicians. The Mail and Express says: Senator Robb has been sent to France to study forestry. Has the administration "taken to the woods" again, or is it up a tree? Chicago has a new magazine.

Frank Abbott and Tom Ewing are on their way from Noales with several hundred Mexican horses, which they will place upon the Tombstone market for sale. C. S. Abbott and J. E.

Mayor Thomas has received a letter from the pirty in Tucson holding the 5 10,000 city bonds. The holder of the bonds wants the money. The city has no money. What are wc going to do about it? The Bisbee stage brought in the re port lait night that four Apaches were seen in the neighborhood of Sandy Hob's ranch yesterday. They are evi dently laying in wail for the purpose of capturing the sqaw, which was taken prisoner there last Friday by Charley Crouch. Judge A. O.

Facta friu Ici-OH Chn Iitn. San Pedro, January 3, 1886. It is said that Chief Engineer Kcefe, while on his way to the interior of So nora, partook of some of "Montezuma's delight."

That the treasury officials realize a handsome sum thereby, and on being in terrogated on the wherefore, answer thai, according to the new laws, their wages were subject to a discount, and that they must make up some way.

Sul'e of the Treasury of Aiacbo County ltobbed of $11,100,54 by Five Masked Men. (SI. John, Herald. 1 On Sunday evening about 7 o'clock five masked men went to the house of Francisco Ba:a, deputy treasurer, and forcing in the door, made a rush for the bed where he was sleeping, and grabbing his pants, commenced searnhing the pockets, taking the keys f the in side door and vault of the safe. ''Ihey then at the point of the pistol compelled him 10 get up and dress; two of the par ty remaining to prevent the inmates from giving an alarm. The others took him to the treasurer's room in the court houe and compelled him to open the iafe, the outsidedoors of which is worked by a combination lock. After the safe had been opened the robbers ransacked tne contents, taking over eleven thousand doll irs in cash, itoout two thousand of which was in gold ind silver coin. At the tiin.' there was over fixe thousand dollars in checks which the rubbers did not get, probably not wishing to take the risk of negotiating them, they all being for sums ranging from $100 to $900. After taking the funds from the safe, the robbers went out the door of the treasurer's room, and Mr. Baca immedi ately gave the alarm, but the night being dark and stoimy, notracecould be found of them. As near as can be ascertained the guard who stopped at the house of Mr. Baca, left about the same time as did the persons who did .the robbery at the court-house. The robbery was evidently well planned, as every movement seems to have gone as smooth as clock work the whole transaction occupying less than half an hour. The stfe in which the county money is kept is of the Baird make, combination lock on the outside doors, with inside or day doors, and an inside screw door, iron and steel vault, to which is fastened a time-lock attachment, but the latter has never been put in working order aincc its arrival here. Up to the present time, as far as we can learn, no news has been obtained as to who the robbers were, what direc tion they took, or whether they have left the town or not. Although the night was stormy and it had rained just before the robbery, no tracks have been found, leaving the town in any direction, the en tire town having been circled just after day-break the next morning. Deputy Sheriff Tom Hubbell, with a party of men have been almost contsant ly in the saddle since Monday moining scouring the country for miles around, with hopes of getting some clue or infor mation as what manner tht robbers left the town and in what direction. Several warrants have been issued di recting the sheriff to search houses both in St. Johns, Springville and adjacent ranches, but returns from those executed fail to elicit any clue. Warrants have been issued for the ar rest of several parties, on suspicion of being implicated in the robbery. Five arrests have so far been made, with war rants out for several more. The gentle men who have been so unfortunate as to be arrested on suspicion of being con nected with the robbery are Messrs. Phin Clanton, Ike Clanton, Ebn Stanley and Lee Renfrow, of Springville, and Mr. Buck Henderson, of St. Johns. These gentlemen will probably have a hearing on Friday or Saturday, the dis trict attorney not being able to get the information desired or witnesses before that time. ' City Wood nnd Coal Yard.
