JJattle in Which Four
Men Are Killed.
Murderer McKinney Dies Fighting
at Bakersfield, California, on
ft A telegram from Bakerstield. dated
April 19. says: The long and exciting
pursuit of James McKinney. outlaw,
from Kingman. Arizona, ended in a
battle with the officers of law within
a few blocks of the tmsiness center of
tbU town today, two men being killed
and one fatally wounded. The dead an
James McKinney. outlaw.
William E. Tibbet, deputy sheriff.
Fatally wounded :
Thomas K. Packard, city marshal.
The battle took place in a large two
story brick buildiug on the outskirts
of Chinatown, used by the Chinese
member of the Sui Ong Tong lodging
house as an opium den and joss house. 1
Here McKinney was kept secreted for
two or three days. He had a compan
ion. Al Hulse. an ex-convict, who
being a member of the Chinese secret
society was enabled to enlist the aid
and sympathy of the Orientals in j
harboring the outlaw.
Shortly before li o'clock this morn
ing Sheriffs Kelley of Kern. Collins of i
Tulare and Lovin of Arizona, with
Officers Will and Burt Ti boots. Guy

and died shortly after: Packard was1
hot through the neck and shoulders
and dangerously wounded. Burt Hb-
bets, brother of the dead deputy sher
iff. shot McKinney through the mouth
and neck, killing him.
The bouse was a regular fort. In
the place with McKinney was Al
Hulse. a desperado. McKinney had a
sawed off shot gun in his hand, while
Hulse used a pistol. Hulse would not
obey the order to come out of the liar
ricaded house, and the fire depart
ment was ordered to the scene. Hulse
then surrendered. He was taken to
the county jail.
Another accomplice of McKinney
was known to be in the house where
the battle took place, but would not
surrender. The building was set on
fire, and in fifteen minutes i ie max
who refused to give bis name was
smoked out and taken to. jail. The i
feeling runs very high against Hulse.
and there is considerable talk tonight
Big Mining Excursion.
On May 5 a big excursion party,
composed of stockholders of the Mer
chants Mining company, will leave
Chicago for a visit to the company's
property in the Big Bug section.
There will be 110 people in the party
and they will have a handsomely ap
pointed special train with Pullman
sleepers, diner, baggage car. ntn .
in fact it will be a duplicate of the
regular Santa Fe limited trains, in
its equipment and accommodations.
There will be one feature in con
nection with it which will differ trom
most of the excursions of mining men
that have ever visited this section and
that is the people composing this can
step aboard the train at the initial
point of the journey, and step off of it
at the claims owned by the Merchants
Mining company, as the train can be
run in on the spur to the comiany"s
A very large proportion of the
stockholders of the Merchants Min
ing company are business men and it
is proposed to give this party a recep
tion in Prescott on the occasion of
their visit here.
The Merchants Mining company
is in a very flattering condition at
present, and their stockholders can
not help but lie pleased with it.
Base Ball Sunday
The great game of lase ball be-!

popularity of these two firms and
their employes resulted in an army
of rooters for both teams, aud these
friends went to the game carrying tin I
boras and everything that upuld be
used in making a noise, and from the
time the game began, at 2::) p. m..
until the close, two hours later, the
fun never ceased.
The line up of the two teams was as

greatly enjoyed by lxth wuiuers aud
losers alike, for the best of f'-eliiii:
prevailed between the two nines j
throughout the entire irame and dur ;
ing tbe "big feed. "
There were two accidents during
the game which spoiled the .-port to a
certain extent, but as neither of them
MM blamable to any one and were
accidental, no lad f.-eliugs were ;
caused, although everyone deeply cte- I
plored them. The more seriouti of the '
two was caused by a foul liall striking
G. A. Bray in the eye. Mr. Bray
was wearing a pair of glares which
were lirokeu all to pieces and pieces
of the glass cut the eye ball quite
badly aud it was feared for some time
that the sight of the eye might le
lost. A physician was hastily secured
and the liroken particles of glass were
removed and the wound caused bv the
in - after which ir.
Bray was removed to the Mercy hospi
tal where he still remains, although
he is reported much improved today
aud there is no doutit but the sight of
the eye will le saved. The other ac
cident was the bursting of one of
Catcher Ruiz' fingers. While this ac
cident is very painful it is not so ser
ious. When Mr. Kuiz was injured
Howard Burmister took his place be
hind the liat aud although it was his
first experience as a catcher he did
the work iu a splendid manner.
Sports of Athletes.
The preparations for the eutertain

snane. ine memiiers ol tne club are
all at work training and doing all in
their power to furnish an evening of
real pleasure and profit. Quite a good
deal of skill is being brought out
among the different members in the
line of athletic and gymnastic sports,
aud our eople should patronize the
club aud encourage the good work
for it is a good work.
The club hopes to make arrange

There are two gentlemen in the city
who are said to be very fine in that

Will Work For Eagles.
On Saturday the loard of directors
of the Eagles Investment and Build
ing company commissiouued Messrs.
Tom Shultz and Lon I). Hall as gen
eral agents to visit the aeries of the
order of the I'uited States to sell the
company's stock, the proceeds of
which are to le used in the erection
of the local aerie's building in Pres
cott. This is 'piite an undertaking
aud reflects credit upon Prescott Aerie
for the enthusiasm it exhibits in its
determination to add another hand
! some business building to those al
i ready surrounding the plaza. To ob
I tain the necessary funds for the erec
I tion of this building, any oue will ad
: mit is no small underaking. but the
Journal-Miner knows of no men bet-
ter qualified to do so than the geutle-
men commissioned above.
Messrs. Shultz aud Hall have in
framed the Journal-Miner that they
propose to present their claims under
the auspices of tin- Kagles throughout
tbe country, aud in doing so, they
will of necessity lie required to talk
Prescott aud Yavapai county. Conse
quently this will be in the form of a
; lecture, detailing the thrift and
growth of this county from the date
: of the territory's organization. They
, have decided in order to emphasize
said lecture to introduce illustrations
thereby bringing directly to the at-
1 teutiou of their audiences everything
las it actually exists. Prescott aud
! Yavapai county has done very little1
advertising in the past and the couuty
is now at that point where it can
1 afford to give a lileral support to such
, a project as tbe one now inaugurated
by Prescott aerie Xo. 213.
i Messrs. Shultz and Hall propose to
place on the canvas '" to 100 views of
Prescott aud Yapapai county in the
! delivery of their lecture. This will
j embrace all of t he 'necessary business
j houses and mines of the county and is
bound to prove of incalculable bene
' fit. Their tour will include all of
the principal cities of the United
Burned a Hotel.

The hotel was a two story structure

cated in it and Mrs. Riley also con
ducted a store in the building. The
building aud all of its contents are
reported to hare lieeu destroyed tbe

to have leen some insurance on the
property. In addition to the building
and content.- Mrs. Riley reports the

the tire is not known.
Gun Club Practice.
Owing to the liase lial! game and the
alisence of some of the gun club mem
liers from the city the practice shoot
yesterday was not as well attended as
usual. The Hon at lilty blue rocks

Territory Wins Its Suit
Conrt Held That the Transfer to
Cameron from Original Loca
tors Was Not Valid.
Flagstaff, April 18. (Special cor
respondence. ) On April 18 the dis
trict court of the fourth judicial dis
trict of Arizona decided at Flagstaff
the quo warranto proceedings brought
by the territory of Arizona against
Ralph H. Cameron in favor of the
plaintiff. Cameron had set up in Jan
uary a toll gate near the head of the
Bright Angel trail leading from the
terminus of the Grand Canyon railway
down into the Canyon to the Colorado
river. He based his claim to the
right to exercise a toll gathering fran
chise upon a filing made in 1891 by
Peter D. Berry, who never completed
the road nor collected tolls. The fil
ing for a toll road under the Arizona
law covers a term of ten years, and
this may be extended by the board of
supervisors for an additional term of
five years. Just before the expiration
of the 10-year term an extension was
granted to Berry and three men asso
ciated with him. Shortly thereafter
they conveyed all their interests to
Kalph H. Cameron, who waited for
about two years snd then put up a toll
The proceedings were brought in Jan
nary by the territory to make him
show by what warrant he exercised the
franchise. The position was taken by
the territory that under the toll road
r-tatute any right acquired by Berry
was not subject to alienation and that
it could pass to Cameron only by the
authority of the territory expressed in
the statute. This authority to convey
tbe statute did not grant and the dis
trict court accordingly held that Cam
eron acquired no right.
On the merits the territory was pre
pared to show that as a matter of fact
the trail which is now traveled from
the Bright Angel Hotel down into the
Canyon was built by Lombard Goode
ft Co.. the projector and builder of
the Grand Canyon railroad, and that
it is a highway entirely distinct (ex
cept as to some intersections) from
the one which Berry and his grantees
claim to have constructed under tbe
Berry filing; and that if Cameron had
a right to collect tolls be was attempt
ing to do so on the wrong highway.
Although travel to the Canyon is
mly just begun, it is estimated that
at the present time tbe toll which
C ameron proposed to collect would
j be worth 812, 000 a year.and that with
. iu two or three years it would yield
; the toll gatherer many times this sum.

proposition to bondand lease that prop

of three years aud the purchase price
at the expiration of that period is to
lie 81,500.000. This will be equivalent
to between 60 and 70 cents per share
for all tbe stock issued, after deduct
ing the unissued treasury stock. A
meeting of the stockholders has been
called for an early date to consider
the proposition and there seems little

trip to the Bradsbaw mountains where
he made a thorough examination of
the Rapid Transit mine, which is be

He went all through the workings,

-amples from as many different places

gave an average value of over 898 per

most gratifying showing for the prop

A little incident happened yester
day which bad a pathetic sequa In
the police court this morning, and
Judge McLaue has been trying to find
out among his friends if be actually
looks "easy" or is the other fellow
only a bad judge of dignity when he
sees it. Yesterday afternoon Judge
McLane was coming out of the back
door of his new rooming house, the
Grand, when he was stopped by a
husky looking young fellow iwho had
a very valuable ( ? ) ring which some
of his ancestors or other dear ones had
given him, but ill fortune had placed
him in a position where he needed
some ready cash and was compelled to
part with this treasure. Being desir
ous that some good person should
have the ring to remember an unfor
tunate young man's need, he told the
judge in a whisper that be might have
it for the mere pittance of 85. Not
having a desire to part tne needy
young man from bis treasure the judge
passed him up, but told Oeorge Giles
about the fellow, knowing that Giles
has a fondness for young men in
trouble. This morning the needy
young man found himself up before
the kind hearted man whom he bad
intended should possess his jewelry.
The meeting of the two men was path
etic. Being of a rooming house dis
position the judge provided his friend
with 30 days' free lodging.
While he was in the business of pro
vidng lodging His Honor gave two
common drunks and two fighters

What makes up our existence at pres

But however useful, however honor

preliminary, preparatory for

be 93 feet long by 28 feet in width
and two stories high. The front will j
be the best pressed brick and of a
very ornamental design, making not
only a most substantial but a very
handsome structure, and one that will

has been an industrious and economi
