A Brilliant Display of
A. Blumberg Takes
Territory's Leading Merchants Brief
Account of His Business Career.
One of the most brilliant scenes
that has ever been witnessed by the
citizens of Prescott, was that of the
opening of A. Blumberg s New ork
Store in the Bank of Arizona building
last evening. Invitations had been
sent to all the citizens of the city and
country to attend this opening, and
at 7:30 o'clock the double doors of the
tuo en ranfi-i! nil uw
west from Cor-
tez street and one from Gurley street
on the north were thrown open, the
curtains of the immense show win
dows raised, and the throng of ladies
and gentlemen began to fill the great
store room and in a few minutes the
vast floor space was crowded from
basement to second gallery with peo
ple who looked with wonder and de
light at this suptirb stock of goods so
artistically and conveniently ar
ranged. The new store occupies a large por
tion of the splendid new Bank of Ari
zona buildiug and has been built and
arranged especially to suit the tastes
of Mr. Blumberg, for the convenience J
of his many patrons and to accommo-1
date to the best advantage his j

room is 35 foot
front from the west and 50 foot from ;
the mnh. extending back 120 feet
wit u a ilouole gallery ana oasement,
giving it a floor capacity of several
thousand square feet. The entire
store is heated by steam and lighted
by between 250 and 300 electric lights
arranged in the most artistic manner.

will be its splendid light during the
day as well as at night, there not lie-

store a splendid

As one approached the store from
the west last evening, the first thing
that struck the eye was the large dis
play windows. The one on the right
contained a group of three wax fiff-
ures dressed in the very latest styles,
while iu the left wasa verv hand
some display of summer wash
fabrics. On entering, the visitors
were warmly greeted by Mr. Blum
berg, who was in the heighth of his
glory and the smile on his face evi
denced the feeling of satisfaction he
had of his business triumph, and he
was simply snowed under with con-!
gratulations from all who visited the
store. The center of the first floor is
occupied by four large glass show
cases containing fancy goods for the
ladies, one of these cases being some
thing entirely new iu this section,
containing a number of slides with
small notions displayed to view but
protected from dust or dirt. These
slides arj pulled out from the liack
without opening the case. The
shelves on either side are loaded with
dry goods and ladies' furnishings.
A broad stairway leads to- the first
gallery. At the rear of this gallery
is the dressmaking department, which
will be presided over by a lady from
the east. Also the business office and
a cozy little corner where one may sit
down to a desk equipoed with writing
material and read or write letters.
Also with a mirror, comb, brush, etc.,
where the ladies uiav arrange their
hat or clothing. The millinery de
partment is on the second gallery,
facing Gurley street and is presided
over by Miss Spradling, an expert in
that line, and the ladies have a stock
to select from which has never been
surpassed in Arizona. This gallery is

The history of the building up of a
business to warrant such a store is
I worthy of mention. Not quite seven
years ago Mr. Blumberg started into
; business as a young man with only a
iew aouars wortn ot goods m a very
small room on the east side of the
plaza, but by close attention to busi
ness and courteous treatment of his
few patrons his business began to
grow and his patrons increase in num
ber until he was compelled to become
an expansionist and enlarge his quar
ters, step by step this continued till
he finally occupied the large store
room in the K. P. building with an
immense stock of goods. But not con

The Globe Outrage.
The following from the Florence
Tribune has reference to the recent rid
ing on a rail of Assemblyman Beard :
"For obvious reasons no attention
will be paid this week to the attack of
the Globe Times, the rerjublican "or-
fT-m- upon this paper for having char-
..s.iij. uuuc iur
recent lawlessness in Globe, further
than to remark that Mr. J. J. Fraser
furnished the information in a private
letter without thought of having it
published, and neither approved nor
condemned the action of the Miners'
union. For condemnation of the cow
ardly act in the article reforred to the
Tribune is alone responsible. This
paper believes more firmly in organ
ized labor than in organized capital,
because it is a friend of humanity, but
is utterly opposed to lawlessness. Had
the perpetrators of the outrage in
question the brains of an oyster thev
w'ould know they have injured their
cause ten thousand times more than
they have helped it."
Dreyfus' Own Story,
A powerful chapter from one of the
most remarkable of recorded human
experiences, appears in McClure's
M:igaziue for May Captain Alfred
Dreyfus's own story of his arrest, de
gradation and transportation to
Devil's Isle. To this story is added a
portion of the diary kept "by Dreyfus
on the island, for his wife, and refer
red to so often and so mysteriously in
the Rennes trial, but never made pub
lic. A more intense and convincing ex
pression of human agony than that
found iu these fragments is incon
ceivable. From first to last it is evi
dent that the sufferer is bewildered
and maddened by what has befallen
him, and that all which keeps him
f rom insanity or death is his deter
mination to prove that his persecu
tions are powerlesi to overthrow what
he calls the "sovereignty of the soul."
These dramatic passages make it
clear, too, that Dreyfus was compelled
to undergo on Devil's Isle every igno
miny and hardship the jailers could
devise, even to close confinement in a
hut, enclosed by palasides and shut
out from air and light, with double
irons alxmt his legs throughout the

While General Crook was alive I
would not. ri:ire wrote or fold von :ill
the facts I knew, but General Crook
has been dead several years and I can
see no reason why facts may not be
come a history of the past.
I crossed the Colorado river at Fort
Mohave January 1. 1864. I came to
Arizona intendiug to settle down for
life, and thirty years have passed
and gone and I am still in Arizona,
alive and as well as may be expected
of a man of 77 years. For the first
three years in Arizona I had but little
trouble with the Indians, but in De
cember, 1S66. the Indians killed the
miners of Chloride.
The miners had looked upon the In
dians as wild lieings, but inoffensive.
The miners loaned them their rifles to
kill game with, and the Indians turned
the guns on the miners, killed them
and got their arms and ammunition.
V ith these arms the Indians were
dangerous and soon became bold and
murderous. Several companies of in
fantry were soou located along the
road between Fort Mohave and Fort
Whipple, oue camp being at Beal
Springs, one at Willows and one at
Walnut creek; but the infantry could
not follow and chastise them, tn 1868
the Eighth cavalry was located along
the road and did good work, but all
this time the Indians were protected
rather than hunted down and killed.
The Indians all over Arizona broke
out and went on the warpath.
In the spring of 1867. I purchased
five hundred cows, intending to locate
in Wallapai valley, but I learned that
the Wallapais were going on the v,.r
path, so I sold the cows to a party in
Prescott. In driving the animals to
Prescott the Indians got around us
and fixed for taking the herd. We
had a brush with them and killed
eleven. General McDowell was in com
mand of the division of the Pacific,
with headquarters at San Francisco.
The general heard that I had killed
some Indians and sent orders for my
arrest. I agreed to visit the general
and was released. I soon called on i
the general and invited two friends,
Wtn. Ralston, of the Bank of Califor
nia and Thomas H. Selby, afterwards
mayor of San Francisco to go with
me. They were acquainted with the
general and introduced me. The gen
eral talked plain and accused me of
bringing on an Indian war. My
friends Selby and Ralston vouched
for me and the general claimed to be
very busy, and asked me to cull next
day. I called on him the next day
and he took me by the hand aud said:
"I fully appreciate your situation."
I said, general if you want me to leave
Arizona say so and I will get out but
if I stay there I will try to protect
myself and property. He went on to
say that officially I must stop killiug
Indians but personally he would ad
vise me to go back to Arizona and
stay with them if it was necessary to
kill a few Indians to do so but to
keep the matter quiet and go slow.
Said he: "There are people, they call
themselves humanitarians that value
the lives of Indians more than they
do whites. This element or people
are watching every move and if I was
to send soldiers to fight and kill the
Indians I would le recalled and court
martialed." So bidding me good day
and good luck we parted.
In 1865 I built a toll road from
Mohave to Fort Whipple. I took a
contract to haul 800 tons of govern
ment freight from Fort Mohave to
Whipple and Camp Verde, and I
bought in Los Angeles and San Ber
nardino forty yoke of oxen, a number
of wagons and outfit to work with. I
kad two large wagons built at a cost
of $600 each. I next bought eight
six mule te 'p s; these were large St.
Louis mules, and nired other teams to
do this hauling. I had previously
put up a buildiug in Prescott and
laid in a general stock of merchandise,
including agricultural implements aud
miners' tools. I purchased a set of
tinners' tools and built a shop to man
ufacture tinware. I also built a large
saloon, and a corral and Ixirn to ac
commodate and shelter stock. I also
took to Prescott two billiard tables,
the first taken to Arizona. This ne
cessitated me to travel over the road,
first to keep it in repair, and next to
look after my freight teams.
I got along quite well until the fall
of 1867, when I was riding alone from
Prescott to Hardyville. I would ride
nights aud lay off during the day, as
the Indians were cowardly and wen
afraid to make an attack iu the night.
The road crossed four ranges of
mountains; through these passes
would be made at night and frequent
ly would ride by day in the open
country. One trip I rode through the
Aquerion range and to Wallapai
Springs. It was twenty miles, aud I !
got opposite this spring a little after
sunrise. I saw no signs ot Indians,
so I went off the road a few hundred
yards up a rocky canyon to the spring
and dismount and led my horse. I

they had full quivers of arrows slung
on their shoulders. Within three
seconds from the time the first oue
came iu sight all four were within six
feet of me. To move to draw my re

my noble horse (that clung to me and
rubbed his head against me) would lie

these red devils. As thev stood like
statues, a laughing sneer on their
faces, as much as to say, "now old
fellow, we have got you here," a
thought struck me; I had heart! that
these Indians were afraid of the Yava
pai Apaches. The Apache country
joiued the Wallapais on the east, and
they leing the more numerous (ril)e
would frequently attack, kill and
burn their camp. I turned with all
the coolness that I could muster (for

said: "Whoare those Indians bar!;

said the Indians. "I guess

direction and in a second all four In-

Now it was my time to move. My
horse was uneasy. I did not stop to
water him, but at once mounted and
the horse realized the situation and
started to run down over the rough
rocky trail. I checked up, and when
I got to the road I tried to hold him.
I hu? run he would
I finally trot him
quieted. I had sixteen miles to
ride to Beal Springs the next water
and fifty miles to my home. I had to
travel a little slow so as not to kill the
noble animal. I reached Beal Springs
U less than two hours. The horse
had not drunk for eighteen hours and
the weather was warm, so I only al
lowed the horse to drink one-half what
he would have drunk. I filled my
canteen and drank myself. I realized
that my nerves and my whole system
was shaky. Ihe fact is I was
whipped without a figbt.
I mounted my horse and rode over
the Cerbat range to Coyote spring,
four miles. Here I allowed the horse
to satisfy himself with water.
I had, not noticed any signal
smokes ahead of me and I thought
that I was out of danger and rode
quietly along over a smooth road for
about five miles. I was yet trem
bling and rather broke up. I con
cluded that I would stop a few min
utes and rest, and finding a little
batch of grass I took off the bridle
and let the horse feed while I made a
cup of coffee. I had gathered up
some sticks and fixed for a fire when
my horse threw up his head and
snuffed. I looked, and within ten
yards of me I saw an Indian ap
proaching. He had a bow and ar
row iu place but did not seem to le
on the war path. He said, "how de
(loo, how de doo; tobacco smokum.'
I threw him a small piece of tobacco.
I next threw my saddlebags on the
saddle, tightened my cinch, and
without putting on the bridle
mounted and the horse started on a
run. I soon coaxed him to stop. I
got off and put on the bridle, as I
had learned that the Indians would
so appear to a party; one Indian
would come, soon one more would
come, and in a very short time there
might be six or eight. Then they
would take the advantage. I did not
care to stop longer.
I could go home
without eating and did so, arriving
about 5 p. m., but I was asked if I j
was sick when I reached there. 1 1
said no, but was tired. I drank a cup
of tea but ate but little. I weut to
l)ed but could only sleep a few min
utes at a time. It took me five or six
days to get to myself again. As soon
as I would close my eyes to sleep I
saw those red devils that held me up.
I finally got straightened out and in
ten days a pvrty of military came
along and I accompanied them to
I'n scott. I sold my mule train, got a
little money the balance I never
got. I sold my saloon to the quar
termaster at Whipple post. I sold as
much of my goods as I could and
sold my tiuners' tools to Campbell it
Buffum. 1 sold my buildings and
loaded the balance of my property on
the ox train and returned to Hardy
ville, where I turned the oxen loose
on the river bottom, and as soon as
they were fat I sold them to the
quartermaster for lieef, aud I con
cluded to stop at home and take no
more risks with the Indians. I aban
doned the toll road that cost me
335,000 to build. The fact was I
could not fight single handed the
I'nited States army aud the Indians

Since the Indians gave up and
came iu and made peace I have fre

held me up. tint I never apologized or

them. The fact was I saw no ,

In the spring of 1872 Gen. Crook
was sent to Arizona to make peace
with the Indians. Soou after arriving
in the territory he hegan to learn what
had been done and got at the real sit-
uation. He came to mv house and
stopped over night and asked a great
many questious, aud 1 saw no more of
him for several months. In 1872
Lieut. George W heeler, of the topo-
graphical engineer corps, came to Ari
zona for the purpose of exploring
northern Arizona. Prior to this a large
country in northern Arizona was rep
resented on the government maps as
unexplored. Over 500 miles of the
Colorado river was not marked iu. With
Lieut. Wheeler came three young men.
one Loring, and two others. These
young men were from some of the
best families of Massachusetts. They
had just graduated from Yale college.
They were roughing it for health. In
November, 1873, Wheeler got through
his work and the three young men
were paid off iu Prescott. They had
about one thousand dollars each in
one hundred dollar greenbacks. There
railroads iu Arizona at that
time, and they took stage for Los An
geles. They rode the first uight all
right. The next morning, about twenty
miles west of Wickenburg, four In
dians attacked the stage, killed the
three young men and the driver

muzzle-loading guns, and before they
could reload Kruger and the woman
had got out of the way. The horses
were shot and the stage pillaged. The
news of this affair got to Gen. Crook's
ear-and he sent out four men to iu-v.-tigate.
Soou the Indian agent
started a story that it was Mexicans
that did the robbing, and a Mexican
appeared in Wickenburg with money,
and soon it was telegraphed to Wash
ington to this effect, but the four men
sent out to investigate returned to
Gen. Crook and reported that it was
four Indians from Camp Date Creek
that murdered the Loring party and
plundered the stage.
There was a Mexican that arrived
in Wickenburg the next day after the
hold up. He had some money aud
bought a saloon, and spent money
quite haaly. The way I put this mat
ter up afier inquiring into matters was
that the Mexican was riding over the
road and came across the wreck of
the stage aud overhauled the dead and
got some money.
Six days later after the stage hold
up Gen. Crook came to my house.
He was alone in his ambulance and
he wi-died his mules fed and called
for supix'r for himself ami driver. I
thought this very strange as it was
not vet night. Soon the general
asked me out to look at his mules. Al
soon as we got to the corral he asked
me il I was very busily at wcrk. I
said yes. Then he spoke about the
stage robbery and murder. I told
him I hail been reading of the affair
in the Arizona Miner of Prescott.
: Well, said he, what do you think of
.it? I said that it iva Indians. Now,
' said he. I came to see if you would

affairs had invetig:itil the matter.
He said it would take a great deal of
evidence to establish the fact. As
for himself he lielieved it was Indians
from Camp Date Creek aud he wanted
to punish the whole tribe, as they
were Ixiil, but the powers that lie in
Washington held him back to please
a few cranks that seemed to lielieve
that the noble red maa was superior
to the white man. He wanted to be
let loose and wipe them out. I told
the general that my business was such
that I could not go. He said that I
must go and help investigate themat
ter. I said that already six days had
passed and the best that I could do.
it would take me four days to reach
the place where the hold up occured
as it was over two hundred aud fifty
miles to travel. After nearly an hour's
talk supper was called and we went
to supper. After supper he said that
he would drive down to Fort Mohave
and I must think the matter over.
Next morning early the general came
back. I told him that I could not go.
Then he said that he wished that if
I got any information alxmt the mat
ter through the Mohave Indians that
I would let him know, or that if I
heard of any depredations committed
by Indians to r.-port it to the papers
to let it lie published. I agreed to
this and the general left. The next
i lay about noon a young ludiau called
at my house. I was up the river
fishing. The ludiau inquired for me.
I was pointed to on the lank of the
river. He came to me and sat down
and at once inquired the value of
greenlwcks. I told him that some
were worth one, some live, some ten,
some twenty, some fifty and some one
hundred dollars. He asked how was
the one hundred dollar bill marked.
I as nearly as I could explained to
him. He now looked around to see if
any Indians were near. He then
said he had been down to the Colo
rado reservation, ( Parker it was after
wards called) and he met four Yava
pai's (These Indians' are generally
called Apache-Mohave on account of
their lieing friendly to the Mohaves)
and that these Indians had lots of
money. Several bills were among
this big money. The trader at Par
ker was very anxious to get these bills.
He gave them beads plenty and calico
He stayed in camp with them. They
had some whisky, and they told him
they had taken iu the stage and killed
four white men aud got money, a gun
and four revolvers aud clothing. blank

I would fit him out and would give
him money and goods to trade, and i

dollars in silver, four calico shirts,
some handkerchiefs and other trink

bring it to me. The Indian started

MINES AND MINING
C. W. Piatt is running his Kirk
land valley quartz mill right along.
This mill is a five-stamp one and is
run by water power. Mr. Piatt has a
mine of his own from which he ob
tains some ore for the mill, but is
doing quite a good business in custom
A gentleman just in from Groom
creek says the showing made in the
Midnight Test mine there is some
thing remarkable. He says it has all
the appearances of becoming a big
mine, and he thinks Groom creek will
be the Cripple creek of Arizona.
W. B. Moore and Bert Grove are
in town today from their mining camp
on the Skull valley slope of the Sierra
Prieta range. Mention of the rich
ness of their property has heretofore
been made in these columns when a
shipment of rich ore was made from
their mine. At a depth of forty five
feet they drifted from the shaft to
determine the extent of the ore body
they were in and the results proved
most satisfactory as they found the
ore in good quantity and paying
quality in the drift.
