Shooting Scrape at Jer

Miner More Puts Ballet in Miner
Holtz' Head on Being Called
Jerome was thrown into a 'state of
considerable excitement on Saturday
afternoon over a shooting afirav which
occurred there. Tbe parties were
both minerstbovictii- ..f the shooting
being Ed Hoiiz and the
-hooter. Geo. !
Moore. Particular.- of tbe tragedy
seem dfflcult to obtain but it has
been learned that Moore has been a
member of the Miners' union but for
personal reasons did not care to affil
iate with tbe local union there. He
was invited to the Miners" union hall
to answer certain charges, and after
reaching there, Holtz. it is alleged,
applied that ever ready epithet of a
union man. "scab" to Moore, when
the latter drew his gun and fired.
The bullet entered Holtz face below
the eye and is lodged some place in
bis bead. Tbe lull nature of bis in
jury cannot be determined as they
have been unable to locate the bullet.
Feeling ran high against Moore by
the union men. and Deputy Sheriff
Xevin.after arresting bin: hud placing
bim in jail, afterwards secured a
buggy and drove down into the Verde
valley and round by Cherry creek
with bis prisoner. Sheriff Roberts left
Prescott at dark, being advised of the
action of his deputy and drove to Ash
Creek, where he met Neviu and bis
prisoner and returned with the latter
to Prescott and he is now in jail
awaiting the result of Holtz" wounds.
Moore is a married mac, his family
residing in California
Tbe Merchants" mining company
has recently had a few carloads of its ,
ore concentrated instead of sending
it direct to the smelter. The experi-1
ment proved highly satisfactory as i
it resulted in a saving of several j
hundred dollars to each car load to
tbe values, by getting rid of the silica
in tbe ore before smelting.
Mark Bradley came in from the
Lion Mining compnay's property last
evening. He savs they expect to get
started on tbe new working sha't of
tbe Lion mine about the fin-t of July.
W. T. Coad, of RarJid City. S. D.,
one of tbe owners of tbe Buffalo mine
near Dewey, has returned to Prescott
from a visit to tbe property and re
ports that tbe new 10-stamp mill is all
up and about ready for work with the
r exception of inclosing it which will
be completed in a few more days.
Work bas been commenced in the
mine and a force of nioers are drift
ing on the 200 foot levi!. While the
ire so far developed in this property 1
is not very high grade, there are large
bodies of it and it i6 this class of
mines that usually make tbe good,
substantial, dividend payers in the
long run. Tbe deepest workings are
only 200 feet and it is thought the ore
bodies will increase in size and value
as depth is attained. The ore so far
is all free milling gold, but tbe indi
cations are that when permanent wa
ter level is reached tbe character of
the ore will change to sulphurets. This
property has a number of good advan
tages in its favor among tbem being
it nearness to the railroad, tbe sta
tion of Dewey being less thau half a
mile from the mill and t e wagon
road being as level as a floor, a so its
close proximity to tbe Agua Fria
river, tbe distance being less than a
mile and across a penectly level
stretch of couutry, so that water can
be pumped to the mine if it should
not develop enough water for its use.
at very little cost. Mr. Coad left
today for his home in South Da
kota, and his partner. Mr.
Dale, of P. nnsylvauia. is exjtected to
arrive here about the first of next
week to look after property. Harry
Colling, an e-.ierieuced mining man,
is super iuteudent of the mine.

H. Reyfsneider is ' here from Los
Angeles for the purpose of starting
work on what has heretofore been
known as tbe Rambler group of mines
not far from Mayer. The old cornpauy
has been reorganized and is now
known as tbe Lion Mining company.
The company has seven claim-- in that
section ou which they intend to liegiu
development wink at once. and
lumber aud other material is now be

plenty of capital to properly push the
work with and it is to be hoped hey
may meet with great success
D. J. Sullivan, w ho has just return
ed from a visit to Congress reports
that three shifts are at work on tbe
Alaska mine. The shaft is uow down
75 feet at which poitit both iu width
and value the ore Imdy continues to

In booming properties iu this coun
try Henry B. Clifford liooms Yavapai
oonnty. That the faith in Yavapai
county, as expressed by him is sin
cere is evidenced by the fact that
he hus made extensive investments
here, showing that he considers the
opportunities and possibilities of Ari
zona, and of Yavapai county better
than be can find elsewhere. In a re
cent circular just received at this
office Mr. Clifford says: "It is
our belief, often publicly expres
sed, that the mines of Yavapai
county will find their greatest value
, at depth. But you cannot develop a
mining proposition with a view of a
long and steady life as a dividend
paer, without a complex system of
development based upon economics,
such as follow the installation of tbe
best machinery that can be bought.
It is our belief that before final judg
ment can be passed upon tbe actual
value of tbe Peck mine, that at least
18150,000 should be exjended in its de
velopment. We desire within the next
two years to place upon the mine the
most modern machinery, and to sink

Articles of incorporation of the
Wickenburg Mining and Smelting
company were yesterday filed in the
office of the county recorder, the in
corporators being T. M. Elder. Lou

the above gentlemen were among tbe
large party of Cbiacgo people who vis
ited the Merchants Mining company's
and the Braganza Miuiug company's
properties some six or eight weeks

the Climax Gold company's property
and thoroughly inspect the work
which has only recently begun under

They were met in Prescott by J. C.
Rankin and ( loveruor W olfley who took

Upon their return from Quartz
mountain they will take tbe train
Monday morning for the Big Bug sec
tion and pay a visit to tbe Henrietta
properties belonging to the Braganza

also the Merchants' Mining company's
properties. They will leave for Chi

Strong New Legal Firm.
A legal combination has just been
formed in this city and went into
force which makes one of the strong
est firms in the territory. Tbe name
of tbe firm will be Hawkins, Ross and
Anderson, and tbe gentlemen com
prised in the combination are Judge
J. J. Hawkins, John M. Ross and Le
roy Anderson. Judge Hawkins needs
no introduction or words of praise at
the bands of tbe Journal-Miner, as be
has been a citizen of this city for
nearly twenty years, and during all
that time be bas enjoyed a large legal
practice. He was appointed by Pres
dent Cleveland to the supreme bench
of tbe territory, which position be
filled with honor. There is probably
no attorney in the west better posted
in corporation matters than Judge
Hawkins and tbe immense practice be
has in that line shows that his judg
ment in matters of that character is
rated very high.

is a graduate of Sauford university
and aside from being an attorney of
marked ability for a young man, is a
very pleasant and courteous gentle
man. Mr. Anderson came to Prescott
about a year ago from Taylorville,
111., wbere he was the junior member
of the legal firm of Deunnn and An
lereon for several years and enjoyed
the refutation of being one of the
leading attorneys in that part of tbe
state. As an index to the high es
teem in which be was held in his
former home, it is only necessary to
state that two years ago be was a can
didate for congress from tbe twenty
seventh congressional district of llli-
nois, on the republican ticket, and
in a district which was usually about
(JOiO democratic he radamd the demo
cratic majority to about 2700, and
made one of the l st and cleanest
cumpaigns that had ever been con
ducted in that district.
Taken altogether tbe new firm will
make a legal team which will be a
power in this part of tbe territory and
will undoubtedly enjoy a large busi
ness. Cow Men Have Duel.
A telegram from Holbrook to the
Albuquerque Citizen dated June 19
gives tbe following account of a dead
ly duel between two prominent stock
men of that section: "News reached
here today of the killing of Henry
Barrett and probably the mortal
wounding of Prime Coleman, on tbe
Apache Indian reservation, about IH'
miles south of this place, on the 16'.h
inst. Both men are well known, bav
ing leen residents of Apache couuty
many years. Both were engaged in
tbe stock business. From meager ac
counts of tbe affairs obtainable at this
hour it would seem that tbe two meu i
had a dispute over grazing permits ou
tbe reservation Barrett received four
pistol wounds in tbe abdomen and
died within a few minutes. Coleman
was shot through both thighs, besides
having his head severely beateu with1
the butt of a six shooter in the bauds
of Barrett. Coleman was still alive i
at last accounts, but was expected to j
die from bis injuries. This is one ot
tbe most lamentable tragedies that bas!
occurred in this locality for many j
years. BotSmen were married aud
well respected throughout this section
of tbe country. "
Two Hearts Made One.

YEAR OF DISASTERS.
The year 1903 bas so far been a rec- i
ord breaker for disasters. Tbe Kau- ,
a- floods, it is estimated. say.- the To
paka Journal, have caused a loss of
millions of dollars. Other western
states have been damaged millions
aud tbe crops so -injured that the
eventual loss will amount to many
millions more. Iben following close
upon these troubles have been storm
damages iu Georgia and South Caro
lina which will surely reach ten mill
ions estimating property loss only.
Of course the loss of life in the west
aud south cannot be estimated iu dol
lars aud cents. In additiou have been
the forest Hres throughout the couu
try and tbe injury all along the At
lantic coast due to the drought. There
is no way of accurately estimating
these losses, but they will swell the
grand total several millions more.
Now comes a flood in Oregon accom
panied by au appalliug loss of life.
The loss of wages due to strikes and
tbe stoppage of productive operations
is full v as great as tbe losses due to
! uatural causes. The American people,
; however, have plenty of energy anil
courage to rally under sucb afflictions
and they wih meet anil repair all
these disasters so far as the material
loss i- eoucerned.
