Davis Had Precedents
Tho receipt today of the full text
of tho correspondence between Hear Ad
miral Davis and Governor Swettenhani,
which ditf not differ from tho communi
cation transmitted by tho Associated
Press, caused unvnl officials to study
the situation to see if Davis hnd in uny
way transgressed the bounds of pro
priety on his visit to Kingston. They
not only found n precedent for his land
ing to preserve order, strangely enough
in the case of another British islaud in
the West Indies, but also saw nothing
in the ntt'nir to warrant the letter ad
dressed to him by Swottcuhum.
Had Asked for Help
Secretary Metcnlf this afternoon gave
out the following statement bearing on
the subject: "The department has re
ceived tho full text of the correspond,
enco between Hear Admiral Davis and
Sir Aloxandor Swettcnhnm.
"From this correspondence it appears
that tho admiral landed a party of six
to guard and secure the archives of the
American consulate and another party
of ten men for the purpose of clearing
away wreckage. Later on at the earn
est entreaty of tho colonial secretary
and inspector of police, who spoko for
the governor, who was absent form the
city, men were landed under arms to
overawe an alleged mutiny nt the jieni
tontiary, containing five or six hundred
prisoners. The admiral proceeded in his
oarriago to visit the governor at Kings
house and found him living with his
family in tents. Ho was accompanied
to the city by tho governor. Tho same
afternoon on request of the governor
tho men wore withdrawn from shore
and leturucd to their ships.

GLOBE, GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 1907
C. C, Carico Is Made Marshal
Last Night, Sparks Receiv
ing Only Two Votes,
ELLIOTT AND HILL,
CLERK AND ATTORNEY
North Globe Taken into the City
in Spite of Strenuous Objec
tionsCouncil Passes Three
The election of a city marshal by
the council last evening overshadowed
all other busiuess on hand, us expected,
and as predicted in these columns, a
dark horse carried away tho most re
munerative job in the gift of tho coun
cil, 0. 0. Carico, a Hepublicuu and for
merly justice of the peace for this (lis
district, being selected. ,
The election of city officials was tho
first business which came up last even
ing and there seemed to be u disposition
to have this duty disposed of in a hur
ry. First came tho selection of a city
clerk and V. J. Elliott was chosen by
a unanimous vote. The sumo occurred
when the name of George R. Hill went
befoie the council for city nttornoy.
Only two nominations were made for
marshal, Alderman Murphy presenting
the nnme of William Sparks and Alder
man Martin that of C. C. Carico. There
were no other nominations and Mr.
Murphy Jisked that the potitiou of Mr.
Sparks be read. It contained the names
of n largo number of eitizous, but it
was ovident that the reading of this
formidable document 'would not improve1
the chances of Mr. Sparks. It looke.d
like a Carieo colored slate.
There was some discussion as to tho
maimer in which the vote should be
taken, Mr. Murphy favoring an open
ballot and others a secret one. A mo
tion was carried to make the choice by
a secret ballot and when the slips had
been gathered and counted, the vote
stood, Carico 3 and Sparks 2, Mayor
Sultan not voting and Alderman Gibson
There were two nominations for su
pervisor of streets, R. G: Goodwin and
W. II. Hiatt. The vote stood 4 to 1
in favor of Goodwin, Alderman Murphy
voting for Hiatt. It was decided that
all of the officers should give a tempo
rary bond until surety bonds aro se
cured for them.
North Globo Annexed
A petition was presented in which ;i
majority of the taxable property of
North Globe was represented asking
that North Globe bo annexed to the city
of Globe. A resolution which hnd been
prepared by City Attornpy Hill was
read, but before action was secured on
it, Andrew Maurel of North Globo made
an objection to the annexation, basing
his claims on tho illegality of the act.
Mr. Maurel was shown where his author
itv was wrong and on motion of Alder
man Woods tho question was put and
curried by n unanimous vote. The city
attorney was instructed to prepare an
ordinance effecting the annexation.
Vacato Part of Street)
W. II. Butler, nppenring in behalf of
certain property owners on Broad street,
petitioned tho council to vacate that
part of the east side of Broad street
between the First National bank and
tho Del Monte restaurants which had
been done somo time ago-by the board
of supervisors, and that the council in
struct the mayor to give the petitioners
a deed for the same. A resolution
granting the request, at a price ibf $10
per lot for three lots involved, was
Threo More Ordinances
After a short recess the council passed
three ordinances as follows: No. 8,
preventing dogs from running at Inrgo;
No. 9, for the abatement of public nui
sances, and No. Id, establishing a pound.
Now City Officials
F. J. Elliott, the nowly appointed city
clerk, is one of tho well known members
of tho bar of tho county and a member
of the law firm of Weinberger & Elh
ojt. He h counted among the brightest
members of his profession in the city
.and will make an excellent clerk and
treasurer. George Hill, tho city attor
ney, has been lor a numoor 01 years
0110 of the leading membors of the Gila
county bar. He sorved ono term as dis
trict attorney and, like Mr. Elliott, ho
is' a Republican.
C. C. Carico, the city marshal, is ex
ceptionally well fitted for the duties of
his oflice, which aro more in the nature
of tax-collector than a police officer.
Ho sorved a term as justice of the
peace, being elected on tho Republican
ticket. He has been a resident of Globe
for tho last eight or nine years. R. G.
Goodwin, who was made supervisor of
streets, was appointed by tho council
of last Octobor. He is well qualified
for tho position, as he is conversant
with the city's needs along tho lines of

Talesmen Not So Anxious,
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, January 24. Three
new jurors to try Harry K. Thnw for
tho murder of Stanford White were se
cured todny. This result was attained
during the closing hour of an extremely
tedious session. When court adjourned
for tho day five jntore, Including tho
two chosen yesterday, had boon accept

in all were examined. Tho threo jurors
chosen today arc Henry C, Harney,
piano dealer; George Pfaff, dealer in
machinists' supplies, mid Arthur A.
Campbell, superintendent of telegraph
and telephone construction.
Not Anxious to Serve
Tho tedious manner in which the se
lection of jurors proceeded today makes
it difficult to predict just when the trial
panel of twelve will be filled. Tho
court's order that the jurors must be
kept together under the care of a bai
liff had the effect of making many of
tho talesmen reluctant to Berve. Vari
ous excuses were offered today, ono man
declaring that to bo locked up for two
months would so wreck his nerves as
to make a calm consideration of the
case an impossibility. He was excused.
The nineteen talesmen examined yester
day and thirty-one todny brings the
total thus far called up to fifty,
Few Challenges Used
Of the thirty peremptory challenges
each allowed tho prosecution and de
fense, the former has used eight and tho
The defense today seemed willing to
accept any talesman who made reason
able answers to the district attorney's
The fact that Thaw's attorneys asked
several 'of the talesmen if they had any
prejudice to any particular line of de
fense was taken to indicate that the
defense might be cither tho so-called
"unwritten law" or emotional insan
ity, or a combination of both. Thaw's
attorneys again today offered no ob
jection to tho district attorney's ques
tions as to whether or not the proposed
jurors would bo guided by actual lnw
as laid down by tho court to the ex-
elusion of nny fanciful law they might
themselves import into the case. Each
accepted juror promised tt abide by
the interpretation of the court.

strong showing on the Brewery claim,

Tho main workings consist of a cross
cut tunnel into the lead, a drift on the
lead of 75 to 80 feet and a crosscut
from tho end of this drift 45 feet long.
Tho entire drift and crosscut aro in
7 per cent ore. Tho Lead Home claim
has nnothor vein running northwest and
