RAID ON ALVORD.
The Mexican Authorities find the
Bird Had Elcwn.
Charles N." Thomas, at one time may
or of Tombstone, and who has been
spending much of his timo of lata in
Mexico, is a visitov in Bisbee today.
Mr. Thomas' business claims his atten
tion throughout Sonora, but ho comes
direct from Guaymns, where, ho in
forms the Review, considerable ex
citemQnt was occasioned last Wednes
day when a former Cochiso county man
made it known that ho, had seen Burt
Alvord at Torres, a town GO or 70 miles
distant from Guaymas, who was making
inquiry as to tho time the first steamer
would leave for Mazetlan.
Many American minors aro stopping
at Guaymas, awaiting a cessation of
hostilities, and the authorities, upon
learing that Alvord was in tho country,
made, a raid on tho American head
quarters, hoping to capture tho bold
bandit. Officers have been dispatched
to Torres, and if Alvord is in that sec
tion it is more than likely that he will
bo captured and returned to the Unitad
Mr. Thomas informs the REVIEW
that tho Yaqui rebellion is still in full
force, and that many American miners
aro wa'ithing, around Guaymas until
uch time as they deem it advisable to
go into tho mining fields. They do not
fear tho Yaauis, but it is tho Mexican
soldiers who have doserted from the
army and arq responsible for all the
depredations lately visited upon for
eigners in that section., His many
Cochise county friends will bo pleased
to learn that Mr. Thomas has met vith
substantial success while in our sister
republic. Ho will return to. Sonora
after renewing acquaintances in Bisbee
and Cochise county.

Col. Alex O. Brodie, "who was in
Phoenix a few days since from his
Crown Point mine, reports a lively in
terest in mining matters in that vicin
ity. The Crown Point is exceeding all
expectations in the matter of ore,
though tho water supply is somewhat
limited. The mill, which was recently
erected, gives good satisfaction, only
that the limited water supply prevents
a steady run. The wa.ter used iB pump
ed from tho mino and sinking continues
in the hope of developing the supply.
The search for water, however, brings
to view constantly now oro bodies, a
fact in itself very gratifying, for though
a big water supply at tho mine is very
desirable it is not an absolute necessity.
The Hassayampa river is not far dis
tant and if water is not found at tho
mine it can be pumped and piped from
the river, though it would involve an
expense. Mr. Brodie believes it will be

THE C0BRE GRANDE.
A Supreme Court Decision in Favor
of the Company.
The Phoenix Republican of the 18th
says: Mi L. H. Chambers, attorney
for the Cobro Grande Mining company,
has returned frdm the City of Mexico,
where he has Veen tho last three weoks
engaged in an adjustment of the dis
pute between tho company and W. C.
Greene and his associates. Much has
been published ih Arizona and Texns
papers regarding the contention be
tween the Cobre Grande and Greene
peoplo, unditcame tqbo gonerally un
derstood that the latter had been
placed in undisputed possession of the
valuable Cobrd Grande mine:
Said Mr. Chalmers last niglit: "We
have not cared to go into print until
something could be definitely said and
I was surprised from time to timo to
read in American papers that the
GreenB people were ultimately victori
ous and the case was at an end. I may
now say that tho situation is as follows:
Wo brought suit in the court of Arizpe
for possession of the mine and a decree
Was ordered in our favor, whereupon
Mr. Greene took a writ of amparo. A
writ of amparo corresponds in a gen
eral way to our writ of habeas corpus ,
and may be sued out at any stage of a :
legal proceeding, the person praying
for it averting that he is being deprived
of his constitutional rights.
"In this case, after the decree giving
us possession of tho Cobre Grande had
been issued. Mr. Greene obtained a
writ of amparo, having sworn that the
judge of tho court at Arizpo was in col
lusion with the Cobre Grando com
pany. This writ has the effect of inter
rupting any legal proceedings which
may be in progress and goes directly to
tho sopreme court of the republic.
Tho writ in this case has been fully
heard ,and dismissed by the unani
mous voice of the supreme court, whose
members say that on the showing 61
Mr. Malgarejo they are surprised that
tho Greene people had the audacity to
ask for tho writ. It is the belief of tho
judges of the supreme court and of the
court at Arizpe that Mr. Greene and
his associates wero endeavoring to de
prive the Cobre Grando company of its
"The company i3 left, by this de
cision, to proceed with litigation in the
court at Arizpe and it is safe to say that
only a short time willl interveno before
the order already issued will be en
forced. The course taken by Mr.
Greene and his party was a last desper
ate stand on technicalities and the
Mexican courts have expressed them
selves as convinced that they have no
rights in the property and have so de

J. A. Kelly, formerly with tho BanK
of Bisbee, but more recently with tho
commercial department of the Copper
Queen company, has resigned tho latter
position to accept a place with the
Cochise Review. Mr. Kelly is at home
in any department of business he may
be placed, and the Review and Mr.
Kelly expect mutual results.

Ingalls. However, Jon J. wont partic
