MURDER LEADER
Alleged Plot to Kidnap and Kill
McCarthy, Frisco Labor
Leader, Stirs Unionists,
FIVE ELECTRICAL
WORKERS IMPLICATED
Remarkable Confession Made
by One of Conspirators
McCarthy Says Citizens Al
liance Was Behind Plot.
By Associated Press.
SAX FRANCISCO, Cal., April 25.
A sensational story was sprung in labor
circles tonight of an alleged conspiracy
and plot to kidnap and murder H. II.
McCarthy, presidont of tho Building
Trades Council, one of the most promi
nent labor leaders in the city. Tho al
leged plot was laid bare in a remark
able aflidavit and confession mado by
II. Shockley, one of tho alleged conspir
ntors, in which ho implicates five othor
members of Electrical Workers Union
No. C. Harry Sullivan and M. S. Car
mody arc under arrest.
Shockley implicated John Young,
Jack Morris, Qus Burt, Gus Smith and
J. Van Frank. McCarthy disclosed the
alleged scheme at a meeting of the
Building Trades Council and gave to
the press what purported to bo tho
confession of Shockloy, which had been
sworn to bofwe Charles France, a no
tary public. While tho conspiracy is
alleged to have emanated from Elec
trical Workers Union No. G which has
been at war with tho Building Trades
Council, and was recently expelled from
that body, McCarthy declared that the
Citizens Allianco was behind the plot
and furnished the funds with which
tho six men, according to Shockley,
were to go to Europe (after carrying out
the plans.
Details of Plot
McCarthy, according ta Shockley s
confession was to be called to the door
of his home, knocked senseless with a
black jack, placed in an automobile
waiting near by, taken to a lonely
house on the beach and there chloro
formed, after which the body was to
have been thrown into the river. The
house for the purpose, it is declared
by McCarthy, was rented April 13, at
1243 Forty-eighth avenue, near the
beach. Since that date two attempts
were made to kidnap McCarthy and
carry out the scheme, according to
Shockloy 's confession. Twice an auto
mobile called at McCarthy's house, but
each timo it failed. It is alleged that
two revolvers, some rope, a sponge and
a bottle "of chloroform were found in
Carmody's room when searched by the
police. Sullivan, Carmody's ropm mate,
although not implicated by Shockley,
was also arrested.
Motive for Conspiracy
Tho motive of the alleged plot Me
Carthy finds in the enmity that the
membors of Elecerical Workers Union
No. 6 have for him becauso of tho r.rt
he took as president of the Building
Trades Council in tho expulsion of the
union from tho council. Tho union
called a strike of its members on the
Fairmount hotel some weeks ago with
out thp authorization of the council.
McCarthy ordered tho union back to
work under tho threat of expulsion.
Refusing to return to work it was ex
polled and the members regarded by the
council as non-union men with whom
they would not work. In place of. the
expelled union, a now union of elec
trical workers was organized by tho
Building Trades Council. Vico Presi
dent Sullivan of tho expelled union in
interview tonight declared that when
tracecd back to its source it will be
found that the alleged plot had been
hatched by McCarthy himself.
Y SES
BISSEE STRIKERS
Reported Conflict at Sunday's
Meeting Debs and St. John
Expected There
The following is from Monday's issue
of tho Bisbeo Evening Miner:
Last night a meeting of the union
members was held at Pythian castla
for tho purposo of discussing tho sit
uation and planning future action of
the strikers. Tho meeting, which hold
for several hours, is reported to have
been an exceedingly stormy one. Mem
bers of tho union, it is stated on tho
street today, rose in tho meeting and
denounced tho action of tho committee
for calling tho htriko in tho first place
on the grounds they did, and secondly
for not having consulted a majority of
tho membership of tho union, which it
is claimed was not done.
After tho session tho meeting broke
up and ono by ono tho members strag
gled forth. In all thcro were, accord
ing to several counts, in tho neighbor
hood of 250 men present. Persistent ru
mors are to bo heard on tho streets to
day to tho effect that a largo number
of tho membership of tho local union
i
i
will refuse to abide by the decision of
the striko committee and will return to
work whether or no.
When seen todny at noon to ascer
tain his side of tho matter, J. D. Cuu
non, a member of tho Rtriko committee
and one of tho original organizers of
tho union, stated that the report was to
some extent truo in so fnr as it con
cerned last night's meeting. Thoro was
some discussion of tho actions of the
strike conunitteo and numbers of men
spoke on tho future action of tho union,
llo denied, however, that tho acts of
the striko committee had been called
into question, saying that boforo tho
meeting wns over thoir actions wore
indorsed in full for tho past and they
were instructed to proceed in future in
conducting the strike along tho same
lines.
Ouo statement which Cannon made
will doubtless conio as a surpriso to
Bisbce people, and that was that within
tho next few days it is very probable
this city will receive a visit 'from Eu
gone V. Dobs and from Vincent Saint
John. Saint John is a vice presidont-of
tho Western Federation of Miners, and
Dobs is a unionist lender and a socialist
orator of prominence.
Aside from tho union wrangles noth
ing is to bo noted today. Tlie mines
nre all proceeding nicoly with the, forces
at thoir command and uumbors of new
men arc coming into tho camp. It is
thought that conditions generally will
improvo from this time.
E
FOR GILA COUNTY
Assessed Valuation Will Be
Over Five Million New
Mine Tax Law
Tho assessed valuation of Gila county
this year will greatly exceed that of
last year and according to Assessor
Merritt it will reach a figure consider
ably over $5,000,000. Tho assessed val
uation last year was approximately $3,
500,000. Tho now Doran mining tax law which
was passed by the last legislature is
partly responsible for tho increase, al
though its workings have resulted in a
decrease in the valuation of some of the
mines in tho district. All of the re
turns aro not in, but it is expected that
all tho mining property in tho county
will be accounted for by tomorrow.
Under the new law, tho assessed val
uation of the Old Dominion and the
United Globe Mines willbc higher than
last year, but that of the Arizonn Com
mercial, Keystone and othors will bo
cut down. Complcto figures will be
available in a few days.
There has been considerable conflict
between tho assessor and several of tho
mining companies over tho now method
of taxing mines according to tho Doran
act, most of tho trouble occurring in
tho caso of mines which wero worked
by leasers last year and part of this
year. Several mino owners have re
fused on tho advice of their counsel to
make out thoir returns and sonic suits
by the county to enforco the collection
of taxes will probably result.
CHRISTMAS IS
Recent Killing First to Occur in
Camp, Says Visitor from
Christmas-
According to Harry L. Hamilton of
tho Saddle Mountain Mining company,
who is in tho city from Christmas, that
camp is tho most peacoful community
in Arizona, despite reports to the con
trary which have recently given that
camp much prominence.
"Tho Mexican population of Christ
mas," said Mr. Hamilton, "is by fnr
greater than tho American, but tho re
cent killing of ono of them by'a dep
uty sheriff was tho first which has oc
curred in the camp. In view of its iso
lation, Christmas is far from being a
turbulent camp, although tho advent
of tho saloons to tho vicinity of tho
camp has caused slight disturbances
around pay days. No ono blames Dep
uty Pcmberton for killing tho man he
was trying to arrest, as the latter 's
death was tho result of an accident,
and tho Mexican was a bad ono whoso
taking off caused no serious regret."
Tho Saddlo Mountain company is do
ing ponsiderablo work to improvo tho
condition of its mines and smelter and
it promises to bo ono of tho biggest
mines of this section. Tho company's
now three-compartment shaft is now
down 200 feet, another thrcc-compart-lnonPshnft
has been started, as has ono
of two compartmonts. Tho smelter is
boing ndded to and by tho first of July
it will have a daily capacity of eight
hundred tons. Tho railroad which tho
compnny is constructing from Chirstmns
to Winkclmnn to connect with tho Phoo
nix & Eastern will bo completed in a
few months. Tho grading has boon
practically complotcd and six miles of
steel aro on tho ground ready for lay
ing. Tho company is also building n
hoisting tramway 3,000 feet in length
to connect tho ennip and railroad.
