Roland Geffs, who was president, at
the time of his death, of the Buf

mother is the wife of Frank Brow
nell, a wealthy mining man residing
at Brownell, Ariz.
Geffs accuser is Mrs. Cecilia Wil-
helm, wife of L. W. Wilhelm, a
prominent member of the Chicago
Board of Trade. She eloped with
the. young man from Phoenix, Ariz.,
five weeks ago, and after spending
a few days at the Fairmont Hotel,

they went to the Casa Madrone

as Mrs. Wilhelm could secure a di

All went as merry as a marriage
bell until three weeks ago, when
young Geffs mother sent her young

age, to San Francisco to take Rob

Fill! I ROAD TO
(From Sunday's Daily.)
Friday night from a . After a survey is completed Mr.
trip of observation of two proposed
routes for the territorial highway
between this city and Camp Verde,
Territorial Engineer J. B. Girand
makes official announcement that
the preliminary survey will be started
immediately by his locating Engin
eer, J. S. Barlow. In going to Camp
Verde, the Cherry Creek route was
traversed, while on the return trip
the Copper Canyon road was inspect
ed. Mr. Barlow will leave the city
tomorrow with his corps and begin
surveys at Dewey, following the same
routes to ascertain exact grades.
After this work is completed the
data will be filed with the Board
of Control at Phoenix when a def
inite route for the highway will be
selected. This practically insures the
creation of a splendid roadway to
the building of which county and ter
ritorial funds will be applied. One
advantage is that both routes have
established roads, which with the ex
penditure of a nominal sum can be
made first class.
Barlow will go to the Camp A'erde
and Flagstaff section to carrv out
plans outlined some months ago by
Mr. Girand for continuing thoe lo
calities on a good line of travel. The
purpose is to repair the old road
and make is passable for any
kind of vehicle. This will give Flag
staff and Prescott direct communica
tion for the first time in the historv
of either city.
While at Camp Verde Mr. Girand
inspected the new bridge. . He is
pleased with it and believes the funds
were judiciously applied. It is also
gratifying to him to learn that the
good- roads movement of the terri
tory is heartily approved bv that
farming community, and that the
Verde valley will be materially bene-fitted.
The trip was made in Chas. B.
Howard's auto, with Mr. Howard as
driver. The 10S miles was ran in
eight hours flat, an exceptional ree
ord considering the condition of the
roads at several places and steep

One of - the saddest deaths that lias

which occurred Monday night at his
home In Williamson Valley, after an
Illness that covered nearly sixteen
years. Paralysis was the fatal af

popular and upright citizen experi

and since that fatal day lias never
had the slightest use of his physical
powers. He had been helpless all
tlies years, and when, four days ago,
the final shock came, he could no
longer stand the ordeal, and passed
away peacefully and painlessly. From
the beginning to the end of his sick

Bordering on the tragicr side of Ufi
of pioneer days, was the thrffllngr
scene of Monday, when Taylor I
Gabbard. Indian agent of the Verdt?
reserve, pulled a gun from his podcet
end brought Ben Taketche, a WaK
pai Indian chief, to bay. The occas
ion far resorting to this forcible dem
onstration was the stubborn refusat
of the Indian to obey the command or
the agent to submit to vaccination,
ordered by the government, and to
which all the Indian wards of the.
government are supposed to acquiesce
when ordered to do so. Mr. Gabbard
has had a thorny path to travel In.
executing his duties in this line, the
superstition of the redman being- so-.
strong and his resistance so stern;.
that on several occasions he has had j
to resort to strategy and force to
compel obedience. to the inviolable rulfc
In Ben, he 'found, however, the worst
opponent of the vaccine virus, and
had he not forced the issue at tin
point of a pistol, the Indian would'
have been the victor, and' prestige In -future
of Mr. Gabbard would have
been placed at a discount amonir the
many Indians be has charge of on tfhs

ed, and Dr. Day sent the needle Into
his arm, and It was all over la sl
Jiffy. The Indian felt the hnmflu
tlon. and with the characteristic gronf
of being subdued, dog-trotted away
and went to his wickiup Jn. the- rock
to the north of the city.
Mr. Gabbard statvd yesterday after
noon that he has over four hundred!
Indians on the main reserve on Clear
Creek, while at Prescott, Mayer ana
