TILL SALOONS :CAME
Strenuous Defense . of Camp
and Criticism of Officer Who
Killed Mexican He Was Try
ingto Place Under Arrest,
CHRISTMAS, .Arizona, April 24.
The peoplo of this ptaee, "both Amer
icans ami MoxicniiSj feci vqry much in
roused nt tlio statement published in
the Saturday issuoof tho Silver Bolt,
"that Christmas is without doubt the
toughost camp in tho territory, if not
in the southwest, nml there is little
doubt that n clash between Moxiqant
and tho Americans is inevitable. "This
is a statement absolutely without foun
tint ion and should be corrected,
Christinas has been in existence since
1902, and has a population of 3,000,
jet tho only .killing .which Jias.aver.
taken place hero occurred two weeks
ago and was committed by an officer
from Globe who had beon horo but Htf
tie less .than two .weeks. Bccnuso this
same oflicer is reported as saying that
he is afraid to - return horo -is hardly'
proof sufficient that this cauip is the,
toughest placo in tho souhtwest. Fop
several years this place prosper odiu its
own quiet way without tho prosonc.0 of
a polico ofliqcr, thanks to tho quality,
of Mexicans and Americans living here,
but last suinmor, when several saiPonB.
established themselves half a mile away
on tho only highway leading to tie
camp, a naturally moderate amount of
disorder took place, so that it was,,
thought best, tp have a?i oflicer stationed,
here, forSnoral effect at least. This'
officer did his duty -noil, his presence
in a great measure having tho effect
desired. There have coa fewer hoboes
and bad man hpre- than in any other
camp in. tha territory, tho placo being
too quiot and rcspectnblo to suit vicious
inclination. It is a calumny on the
inhabitants of .this placo to describe
their home ns the article in the Silver
Tho reason that an officer from Globe
was asked for in tho first place was
that Rangor Mickey had been notified
that ho might ,bo called away at any
time, and it was felt that a community
as largo as this is, .regardless of exist
ing peaceful conditions, ought tojiavp a
polico oflicer in their midst.
The Silver Bct greatly regrets, hav
ing misTcpTcsentcd Conditions 'at Christ
mas, if such was tho case. On account
of its isolation thero was but little
news from that camp cxCapt that
brought here by people coming from
there. However, the faot that tho telo
gram from Christmas telling' of the kill
ing of the Mexican by tho deputy and
asking tho sheriff to hasten to .that1
camp with deputies prepared to remain
for several days showed that tronble
was feared, inasmuch as the' telegram
was sent by tho Saddle Mountain Min
ing company. And tho fears of the
Americans therp must have hiyl jomc
grounds, as is attested by tho fact that
a bunch of drupken Moxicans wero ar
rested by the sheriff's party whifo ttfey
were parading tho streets in a riotous
manner, each pf them carrying n con
cealed weapon. But Christmas1 ha9 got
ten over its scare and hasjjecorao "in
censed" because tho camp has been
called tho "toughost camp in Arizona'1
tho designation which was given it by.
the sheriff and his deputies when they
arrived from the sceno of tho disturb
ance and none of them aro tdndcrfoet.
Every Train Brings Many Ar
rivals in Globe Majority
Are Bisbee Miners
There aro more people (joining to
Globe daily than at any timo in tho his
tory of the camp and it is a perfectly,
natural question that arises In tho minds
of those who wntch tho stream of peo
ple which pours out of tho train rom.
tho south every evening: Whcro do they
all come from and who aro tho? Tho,
first part of the question is' nd riddlo;
the new arrivals come from all o.vpr thoj
country, from tho cities, tho ngricul
tural sections and .from mining camps,.
ami most or mem scok oimur v"vivJw
ment or investment. Of tho latter class
there aro daily arriving those" who
travel "under cover." Thoy aro .known
to bo engaged in tho mining business,
but whom thoy represent or what prop
erties they cqmo to cxamino very pel
dom becomes a matter of publicity. ,
Tho large majority of those who tnr
rive daily aro mliicrs seeking employ
ment in tho local mines, mtfny of whom
como from Bisbee, where tho "Western
Federation of Minors recently inaugu
rated a strike. It is believed that sev
eral hundred miners have alrendy ar
rived hero from tho "Warren, district,
and last night a party of," at least fifty
Slavonian minors came in on tho train.
It is believed that most of thorn will
find work in tho district, although most
of tho mines aro running full shifts
and an effort will probably bo made to
divert tho (jtroain of unemployed else
From recont arrivals in tho city it is
learned that eruditions at Cunnnen aro
similur. Tho mines thero luivo full
complements nml thoro is no room for
more. A sign to this effect has boon
posted at tho (topot nt Naeo, which
warns miners to save their money by re
fraining from a useless journey to tho
