By Under Sheriff Fnlrchlld-IIe.
Acknowledges the Killing.
Conductor Glnncy, in charge of tlio
third section of No. 83, fast freight, on
the Atlantic & Pacific, while trying to
eject a tramp from his train at Mcl.el
lau last Sunday afternoon, was shot by
the tramp, dying at Ash Fork forty
minutes after the occurrence.
It appears that Conductor Clancy
had put off two tramps while at Me
Lellau, but after Jhc starting of the
train they boanled it again, getting
under ono of tho cars, when Mr. Clancy
picked up a small piece of coal and
threw it under the ear to (lighten them
off, not wishing to again slop the train.
The murderer jumped off the tiaiu and
fired the shot which killed Clancy, tho
ball entering the body between the
eighth and ninth ribs, on the left side,
passing through both lungs and the
right auricle of tho heai t.
After the fatal shot Clancy stalled
forward over the train toward tho en
gine, but fell before reaching it. Engi
neer Webb, realizing that something
was wiong. started back over the train
and was tho first to reach tho unfortu
nate man, who at the time was (tying.
Clancy tried to sav something, but
unconsciousness was too near and the
words were umlistinguishablo.
The Iiaiauco of the crew took tho
train to Ash 1'oik, tlio nearest tele
graph station, whe.i the sad news was
telegraphed here. Immediate!) upou
the receipt of the news of the murder
U. S. Deputy Marshal Mori ell ami
and Deputy Sheriff Buggeln, joined by
a host-of friends of tho murdered man,
started to take the trail of tho mur
derer. Tho forces 'were augmented
during tho night by tho addition of
Sheriff Cameron and Denutv Sheriff
Fairchild nnd also by seven Indian
trailers under Sheriff Kosborough of
Mohave county. The trail of the mur
derer was followed Monday south
across tho country to. Rock Butte, on
the S. F. P. & P. railroad.
During tho afternoon the paity
divided, and Uuder Sheriff Fairchild
audDeputy Georgo Nellis went to
Rock Butte, whore the trail was fouud
Nellis' horse gave out when a short
distauco from the station and Fair
child kept on alone until he met the
Preacolt train, when he was joined by
Deputy "Marshal Morroil, who followed
tlio railroad track on foot. When
about eight miles south of Rock Butte
raircbild saw his man about 200 yards
ahead, ami dismounting called to him
to throw up his hands and march
back, which was done.
' On being arrested the murderer
gave his name as James Walters and
acknowledged that he had shot the
conductor, but6xpressed surpiisoiiud
rogret that ho had killed him. Ho
stated that tlio conductor had thrown
stones at him and that ho hud told him
to stop or he would shoot. More
stones were thrown, when he shot
under the car at the "conductor. He
then made his way across the country
to where ho was ovei taken.
Fairchild and Morrell returuou. to
Rock Butte with tho prisoner, reaching
there at 9 o'clock at night. Ho tele

The tragic and untimely death of
Conductor Clancy lias cast universal
gloom over tlio city, as tlio popularity
and acquaintance of Mr. Clancy and es
timable family was great aud wide. Had
tho culprit been brought here during
the day there is little doubt regarding
what his fate would have been, as cx
citemcut was intense among the host
of friends of the dead conductor.
Tho Atlantic & Pacific officials aided
iu every way in their power toward tho
capturo of the murderer aud also gen
erously placed a funeral train at tho
disposal of numerous friends, who fol
lowed the body to its final resting place

A LIVELY SUNDAY.
Two Murders lu Globe-Both Were
Tbero was trouble in Globe last Sun
day and two men went to earth, one to J
rise no more.
Robert Mcintosh, a burly black
smith, Sunday night about 11 o'clock,
walked into the saloon of Gill & Moor
house, on lower Broad street, opposite
the Pascoc house. Behiud the bar was
William Gill, one of the proprietors.
Ho joined a party in a drink and then
Gill, across the bar, engaged Mcintosh
in angry dispute. A few hard words
passed, when Gill reaching below the
bar produced a heavy revolver and
tired poiut-blauk at his unarmed vic
tim. The bullet passed through the
left arm and body aud Mcintosh fell
backward liko a log, instantly killed.
Gill gave himself up to the officers
and was placed in jail under heavy
guard, for the man he killed was one
of tho most popular citizens of the
camp, and the murder is generally
considered to have been cowardly in
the extreme. There was strong talk
of ty nching, but at last accounts it had
Back of the killing is a foul story,
however. Mcintosh, about two mouths,
ago, was arrested, his friends say
through clear malice, for a criminal
assault upon the wife of Gill. Rape
was charged against him and a justice
of the peace bound him over to tho
grand jury. Upon the convening of
that body, however, no case was pre
sented, Mcintosh escaping, according
to report, by the payment of $100 to
Gill and the woman. It was thought
the matter had- been entirely settled,
aud from it Mclutosh emerged witli a
comparative degree-of credit.
Mclutosh was unmarried aud was
about 85' years of ago. His funeral was
held under the auspices tho Globe lodge
of Masons, of which lie wns a promi
At midnight, iu Globe, the excite
ment aroused over tho death of Mcin
tosh was yet at fever heat when news
came of a second tragedy. Banker's
brewery is located about a half mile
down Pinal creek from tho main por
tion of tho straggling mining camp.
Hero in the saloon annex John Quadri,
an Italian, and William Gleason, an
Irishman, became involved in a drunk
en altercation. It ended in Quadri
producing a wicked-looKing knife and
ferociously stabbing Gleason a dozen
or more times. Several of the wounds
were of a frightful nature, and no hope
is entertained of the man's recovery.
Quadri at ouco fled to his cabin near
by, where he was fouud within the
hour by Sheriff Thompson. Tho knifer
knew the officer, and upon Thompson's
hail sent three leaden replies from his
pistol. Thompson, who was armed
with a rifle, fired a couple of shots
through the cabin wall and then de
parted, returning iu a few minutes
with a posse to surround tho house.
But Quadri had accepted the chance
and had flown, aud the darkness made
John L. Druperding and family and
F. J. Taylor and wife arrived in Flag
staff from Salt Lake last week on their
way to Phoenix. They traveled over
land, coming by way of Lee's Ferry.
The family lias been rather unfortu
nate. Three of their horses died since
arriving here, and as they were without
money they sold-oueof their remaining
team to buy provisions. By selling
one of their wagons they finally got
away Monday. Druperding is a butcher
by trade and expects to get work In
Phoenix. Mr. Taylor is a consump
tive and is going to the Salt River Val
ley in hopes of bettering his health.
In spite of their hard luck the families
are "cheerful and say they will pull
through all right.

With nine original articles written
expressly for Electric Power" this
elegant magazine ends its first jear of
life. It is pleasing to see a paper
which has kept its promises through
out the year, and with every number
we found an improvement. In this
present number the lay reader finds
articles of considerable interest, as for
example Mr. A. A. Knudson contributes
an aiticle on "The Practical Education
of the Ear;" Mr. E. P. Thomp'son con
tributes hi3 popular discourse on "In
vention;" Mr. Joseph Sachs explains
the "Electrical Equipment of Modem
Office Buildings," etc. The electrical
fraternity finds food for reflection by
reading an article by Mr. Charles T.
Ritlenhouse on "Observations Upon
Electrical Engineering Progress iu
Europe;" the electrical worker finds
two popularly treated papers, ono by
Mr. Osterbergon the "Shunt Dynamo,"
one by Mr. Monell on tho "Series Dy
namo " The monthly Synopsis has
b'eateu its record this time, consisting
of twenty pages. People who do not
read "Electric Power" do not know
what they miss.
X Significant Departure.
With the departure of another year
when a review is made of the condition
of affairs, It is ouly right that some
thought be given to the physical body
which enables everyone to battle with
life's problem and figure for them
selves the profit and loss on the tiial
balanco sheet. Though tho bank ac
count may be large and each one's ma
terial gain be great, it would not be
surprising if it suddenly dawns upou
many that good health has been greasy
impoverished by the low condition of
the blood. It is in this state that tho
lactic acid In the vital fluid attacks tho
fibrous tissues, particularly tha joints,
making known the localmanifestations
of rheumatism. Thousands of people
havo found in Hood's Sarsaporllla, the
great blood purifier, a positive and per
manent euro for rheumatism.
According to the "Republican"
Claude N. Bennett of the Interiar De
partment is in Phoenix for the purpose
of allotting lands in severalty to tho
Indians of Arizona. The first land
allotted will be the Gila Bend, Papagc
and Pima reserve, 23,040 acres, lying
north of Gila Bend; next the Pima and
Maricopa reservation of about 40,000
acres lying northeast of Tempe. Water
rights will be secured the Indian agriculturist.
