some sort of a crime, did not take tho

found out cveral other things calculated
to reflect seriously upon the Florence
authorities not, however, including
Sheriff Grace who was not in town dur
ing tho shady incidents of last Mon
day. The Warrens wero arrested about 8
o'clock on Sunday night on a telegram
sent out from hereon Sunday morning.
No attempt was made to communiciito

At 11:05 next day a telegram was re

Fifteen minutes later another was re

habeas corpus. At 1 o'clock that day
Sheriff Murphy, at tho request of the
authorities at Florence, telegraphed tho
warrant at an expense of $13.50 and was
unable to receive a reply. It is learned
that that telegram reached tho au

and it was also learned that at the time
the 11:05 dispatch was received an

THE NEW RAILWAY.
The Diamond-Adams Co. Sub
Road Must Bo In Running
Order Within Less Than
Th Diamond-Adams Construction
company of Denver was last Saturday
awarded the contract for building the
Northern Addition railway. The con
struction company thus becomes the
sub-contractor the original contract
having been let to Mr. G. W. Hoadley
and his associates to lie completed
May 10. The contractors secure them
selves by binding the subcontractors to
have the road in running order by
May 1 under a bond of $4O,0QQv The
material must also be on tho ground
not later than Feb. 15.
There cannot be now,thocgh there has
not really been at any time, doubt that
this important line would be built
Tho route chosen has been slightly
changed, not as to its general direction
but has been so arranged as to take in
more of the town than was originally
intended. It will start from the Mari
copa & Phoenix depot and by streets
not yet fully decided upon will be taken
to Center and Washington streets;
thence north on Center to Adams ; east
on Adams to Montezuma; north on
Montezuma to Monroe; east on Monroo
to Pinal and north on Pinal to Van
Uuren; thence east to Apache; thence
north to Taylor in Churchill's addition.
Here for the first time the geperal di
rection of the line will be changed to
accommodate as much as possible this
rapidly settling addition. From Taylor
and Apache the line will run west to
Arabaipai, thence north to Pierce, east
to Apecho which it will cross to Desert
street ; along Desert to Arizona avenue
and thence north through the Dennis
and Urill additions to the center of tho
Hurley tract which will be tho present
terminus. At this point a magnificent
hotel will bo built whose plan has
already been fully explained to readers
of Tiik RtrunLicA.v. The road is to be
of standard guage.
IT'S THE RIQHT KIND.
The Arizona Lithographing Stone Is
Tho Gold and Silver Extraction com
pany yesterday received word from a
Chicago lithographer, to whom it had
sent a sample of the lithographing stone
recently found somewhere along the
Hassayampa. The pieco pent was
about ten inches square.
The expert writes that it is of a finer
quality than has ever before been dis
covered in this country. He calls at
tention, however, to flaws in the shape
of lime spots which cover half of ono
eide of the sample, and also to a seam
which runs through it which he indi
cates by a drawing. This stone, how
ever' was taken from the c-opoings
where such flaws as are described must
naturally have been expected, and
which had really been observed in the
sample before it was sent to Chicago.
Tho deposit, however, is apparently
of great depth and extent and the dis
coverers are confident of being able to
find stone below the surface absolutely
free from flaws of any kind. A trip will
be made to the deposit in a few days
and another sample will be secured.
There seems to be no doubt now that
this Is one of the most valuable strikes
made in the territory within a year.
