Came from Freezing In
quest This Afternoon,
James Boles, 'a well known miner in
this section of Arizona, was found dead
in tho snow, eleven miles from Globe in
the Pinal mountains, Wednesday even
ing. The discovery was made by a Mex
ican boy, who came to town and notified
Sheriff Thompson. Yesterday morning
Deputy Sheiiff Jack Knighton and
Fred Jones of F. L. Jones & Son, went
out to bring in tho remains, returniug
with the body last evening. An inquest
win bo Held by Judgo Thomas nt 2
o clock this afternoon.
Boles came to the city last Saturday
from Bobtail camp, thirteen -miles
southwest of Globe, for supplies. He
was foreman of the camp, which be
longs to Dr. O. B. Bachman of Boston,
who is now 111 the city. He secured what
supplies he required and left early Sun
day morning for the camp, accompanied
by a boy named Wolf, who is employed
at tho Barclay & Iligdon stables.
Last Seen of Boles
According to Wolf's story he had as
sisted Boles with his outfit up to a cabin
on the old Sultan wood road in the
mountains, where Boles said he would
leave some tents which he was packing
until tho next day, when ho would re
turn from camp for them. A heavy snow
was tailing and the road was very
rough. Wolf states tliat was the last
he saw of Boles.
I 'rank Lunii and Jack Rule came in
from that section and reported seeing
Boles Iving in the snow. From appear
inces he tiad been thrown from his
lioise and his outfit was scattered over
the vicinity. His saddle and blankets
were also on the ground, indicating that
he or someone else had removed thenu
Boles horse came into the Bobtail camp
Body Brought In
Deputy Sheriff Knighton, who re
turned with the body last evening,
states that from indication Boles had
not been dragged by his horse, but that
lie had probably pitched off, striking a
boulder. A cut on his chin shows where
he may have struck, and this rendering
him unconscious he. was probablv froz.en
to death. He also thinks that Boles, be-.
tumuli; oun jiuciuii u) mu urivuig snow,
had tried to dismount and, the coun
try being very rough, had fallen from
the horse. The deputy does not believe
thero was any foul play connected with
the death of Boles. When the body was
found there were several dollars in
change in the trousors pocket, a good
watch and a valuable ring.
Had Explosives in Clothes
A rather strange feature of the case
is the fact that there were two boxes
of caps 111 Boles1 coat pockets and an
unexplodcd box of giant powder was
found on the ground. Had either of
these exploded "the body would have
been blown to pieces. Mr. Jones and
the deputy were compelled to pack the
body for a distance of four miles on
a horse until they reached the wagon
