MURDERED OR WAS
HE FROZEN TO DEATH?
John Chisholm brought the in
formation to the sheriff's office
yesterday that a man had been
found frozen to death at -Dead-man
V Flat. The body was lying
under a tree about fifteen feet
from the road and had first been
seen by James Baugess. His
identity was unknown to all who
had seen him, and it was evident
that he had been dead three or four
days. He. had a bed and a small
bundle with him. He had evi
dently wandered away from the
track and was lost when he lay
down for his last sleep.
The body was brought in yes

of the stranger found a wound,"
apparently made by a knife, which
pierced the heart of the dead man,
causing his death. The wound
was made in the naked body and
his undershirt and clothing' but
toned up over the wound. There
was. no blood except on the inside
of his undershirt, nor a cut in th'e
clothing to indicate' .he had been
stabbed through his clothing. No
instrument except a small knife
blade without a handle was found
near the corpse. ,v
A close examination of his ef

a bottle of morphine and a card
with the name "Armstrong" with
a California address.
After discovering the wound,
County Attorney Wilson was-in-formed
of the findings and he im
mediately wired for information
to the address given on the card
in hopes that something might be
discovered that would lead to the
identity of the man. Coroner
Harrington, with the jury, left this

PROJECT FOR VERDE
Reliable reports are in circula
tion to the effect that Senator W.
A. Clark has finally decided to
build a railroad from Clarkdale to
Phoenix, through some of the
richest mining and agricultural-'
country in the world.
It has been known for several .
years that the United Verdcpeople
were contemplating such a road,
after the line from Cedar Glades
to Clarkdale, in the Verde valley,,
was completed. Now the Clark
dale road has been built and it is
stated that one of the engineers
who was employed in its construc
tion is working with a crew of
surveyors somewhere in the Verde
Clarkdale is the new town in
the Verde valley where the new
United Verde smelter is being
built. The road to Clarkdale
from the S. F. P. & P. isno'w in
From Clarkdale to Phoenix, by
air line, is 95 miles. The way
the new road will go is a little ,
more than 100 miles.
Until surveys are made it is.
impossible to say just wherethe'
road will run, but in all probability
Cherry Creek camp will be'on the
jrightofway. .That is one of the.
most important mining camps to
The road is to run eastfof Hum
boldt and Mayer, through a
country dotted with developedl'and
partially developed mining prop
erties. Coming south, it will
pass east of Cave Creek and New
River. Dozens of mines north of
Phoenix that are now handicapped
by lack of transportation facilities
will enter the producing class.
In the country to be crossed by
the protected railroad aregreat
quarries of black and white mar
ble. To the east lie forests con
taining billions of feet of lumber.
Cattle and sheep interests will be
greatly benefitted and ' markets
will be opened for the productsof
some of the richest farming land
on the face of the earth. ' Already
the Verde valley producesas good -apples
as are grown anywhere,
and only a fraction of the avail
able land is under cultivation.
