ROAD TO PHOENIX
PROPOSED BY GIRAND.
(From Friday's Daily.)
A movement to connect Prescott
and Phoenix by the Territorial high
way, on a direct north and south
route, at the earliest possible date,
was inaugurated here yesterday by
J. B. Girand, Territorial Engineer,
and is meeting with hearty -approval.
His plan is to utilize the completed
grade to where it intersects the
county road near Senator. The route
to be followed traverses the Sena
tor Hill, Crook Canyon, Hooper, and
thence to Minnehaha Flat. An es
tablished road is available from this
starting point to the latter. When
Minnehaha Flat is passed, it is his
intention to take over the old toll
road, which terminates at Castle
Creek, about one and one-half miles
east of the Hot Springs. From that
point a road is built to Phoenix over
a level stretch of country.
Mr. Girand proposes to submit the
proposition 'to the Boards of Super
visors of Yavapai and Maricopa coun
ties for approval, and associated with
the movement will be the Territory.
Each will be asked to make appro
priations for repair work in their re
spective territories. The expense in
curred will be nominal compared to
the work that will be required if
the Territorial line of survey is fol
lowed, which requires practically all
new road building. The scenic at
tractions will be inviting, and 'with
the old road repaired one of the
speediest highways in the Territory
will be assured.
Mr. Girand states that if the plan
is officially endorsed the road will
be open to traffic by the first of
September. The matter will be taken
up immediately, and inside of the
next ten days a decision is expected
to be announced. This movement is
due to the lack of funds from the
Territorial tax levy, which is inade
quate to meet the urgent demands
coming in from all parts of Arizona
in the good roads movement.
GOOD ROADS ADVOCATE.
(From Thursday's Daily.)
C. W. Piatt, former resident
this city, and under sheriff during
the J. L Roberts administration, was
an arrival from Wickenburg yester
day, and appeared before the Board
of Supervisors on road building un
der consideration in that section. He
speaks of the projected good roads
movement for that country as very
popular, and that when the highway
on the old route is repaired many
people will be materially benefitted,
while the tourist travel to Yavapai
county this summer will increase.
Mr. Piatt received a welcome from

Fifteen men were placed at work
yesterday, in laying the water pipe

water to the grounds, it was with
the understanding that the Chamber

Thrilling Tale of Novel
Encounter on Camp
ANIMAL IS STONED TO DEATH
BY THREE UNARMED
(From Friday's Dally)
On the mesa near Camp Wood, last
week, a fierce fight took place be
tween a large and vicious mountain
lion, on one side, and Orville Bo
zarth, Ed. Contreras and John Scott
on the other. The combat lasted one
hour and at the end the lion was
killed. ' The stockmen were in the
city yesterday, and relate a thrilling;
tale of - the novel encounter, which
was conducted from beginning to
end with rocks as the only weapons
used. For the first time' in many
rides over the ranges in that sec
tion, neither carried a gun, which
was an unusual circumstance.
In giving particulars of the bat
tle, they state that it was a very
fortunate outcome for them, Mr. Bo
zarth beinc the onlv one of the at
tacking party that suffered any in
jury. He has an ugly claw wound
on the wrist of his left arm, which
is about half an inch deep, while
the others had very close calls when
the animal made vicious attempts to
strike them, and landed close several
times. When the lioness was first
seen, she yas ravenously devouring
a horse that she had killed but a
few moments before. As the party
approached she continued her gnaw
ing of the flesh, and paid no atten
tion whatever to them.
When within less than fortv feet
the rangemen dismounted and the
fight started in earnest. The lion
ess held her ground for several min
utes, but the bombardment was too
severe and she retreated leisurely
from her prey. She was followed
for about one hundred feet and again
came to a halt. In the meantime
the attacking party continued to
hurl rocks, and one struck her on the
head, dazing her. Approaching closer
an incessant rain of stones followed,
and in the final struggle she mad?
the last Junge and struck Mr. Bozarth
I on the wrist. In a few minutes af.
I terward she was dead.
Many wounds were on the body
and several fractures were found, on
examination. Notwithstanding the
severe punishment inflicted, the ani
mal resisted to the end and made a
vicious defense. The hide was re
moved and without any drying or
stretching showed nine feet eight
inches in length from tip to tail. It
was brought to the city and will be
surrendered to the Board of Super
visors under the bounty law.
The lioness was undoubtedly very
old, from its unusually large sizo
and slow action. It must have pos
sessed considerable strength to slay
a horse as large as the one it killed
and was found devouring.
Mr. Bozarth states that some rem
edial legislation should be enacted
at the next session of the Legislature
affecting the depredations of this
class of wild animals ,and the rais
ing of the bounty is suggested by
rangemen as the best way to exterm
inate them. Several valuable colts
and many grown horses have been
killed by these animals recently, and
they are also increasing in number
very rapidly. In , a few years it in
feared they will be a serious prob
lem to handle and the loss of cattle
and horses will reach a heavy sum.
The same condition is prevailing iff
Bloody Basin, in the eastern part of
the county, where several valuable
colts have been killed during the
past few months.

was cut into a few days ago, and he
is very much elated.
