Louise Frost, Preston Porter, Jr., or
as lie was familiarly known, John Por
ter paid a terrible penalty for his doed.
It was 6:30 o'clock when the father of
the murdered girl touched the match
to the fuel which had been piled around
the negro, and twenty minutes later a
last convulsive shudder told that' life
was extinct. What agony the doomed
boy suffered while the flames shriveled
up his flesh could only be guessed from
the terrible contortions of his face and
the cries he gave from time to time.
The executioners, who numbered
about three hundred citizens of Lin
coln county, had not the least sem
blance of the ordinary mob. Their
every act was deliberate, and during
all the preparations as well as through
out the sufferings of the negro hardly
an unnecessary word was spoken.

in the week, in an interview, the
governor was quoted as saying
that he had nothing to do with the
Sheriff Freeman of Lincoln county,
after the prisoner was taken from him,
remained on the train, and presumably
went to his home at Hugo. Ho was
strongly opposed to the lynching, and

HURT ALVORD KILLED.
Tucson, Nov. 19. The discovery of
a human skull near the Casa Grande
reservation, says the Herald, fifty miles
north of Tucson, strengthens the the
ory that Burt Alvord was killed three
months ago by one of his pals, ridding
Arizona of one of the most desperate
gangs of baudits which has ever in
fested its wilds. Burt Alvord, who
spent hid youthful days in the town of
Casa Grande, died within a few miles
of his birthplace, probably at the hands
of one of the criminals with whom he
had been eluding officers for months.
William Stiles, upon whom suspicion
heavily restn, is in jail at Tucson, where
he has been languishing for about

Pernel, commercial traveling men, who
were ou a duck hunt, opens, n field for
much speculation aud at the same time
partly clears a mystery springing from
the unusual silence of Alvord for sev
eral months. He was lu the habit of
sendlug humorous communications to
tbe sheriff's of the several counties, of
southeastern Arizona, aud otherwise
naklng his existence and prosperity
well known among the peace officers
who were unable to entrap him, but re
cently there has not been a word from
The remarkable silence several weeks
ago gave rise to the suspicion that
Alvord fell a victim to the volatile
temper of Stiles, a Mexican half-breed,
or to the treachery of "Bravo" Juan,
another treacherous member ef the
noted gang of train robbers and mur
derers. Weight has been added to the
theory by late developments, and the
discovery of the skull and its identifi
cation as tbe romains of Burt Alvord
by .lack McCoy, a resident of Crasa
Grande, who was well acquainted with
Alvord since their childhood, is taken
by many as conclusive evidence that
the leader of a bloodthirsty gang fell
before the bullets of a traitor in his
gang, much in the same manner that
the famous Jesse James succumbed to
the treachery of lila'clbae friend.
The travelling men followed foot
prints and cavs upon the skull and
humane boiii'tf which were scattered
about, in a sequestered spot near the
reservoir. The bones and skull were
stripped bare by coyotes, and the only
remnant of clothing was a piece of cloth
which probably had formed a part of a
hunting jacket. The skull was indenti
fled by a decayed tooth, conspicuous la
Alvords set of ivory, and a demarka
tlon of the skull produced by a blow,
and similar to one which Alvord carri
ed through life.

Terre Haute, Ind., Nov. 19. Over
7,000 Indiana miners were idle today,
owing to a strike Inaugurated last week
by the hoisting engineers, who number
less than 300 in this state. They met
the Indiana coal operators here last
night, presented a scale agreed Co at
Danville, 111., Nov. 3, and demanded
that the Indiana operators sign the
scale. The operators offered to pay
the scale until the miners' anuual con
vention in January, and then leave the
whole subjeot open for settlement,
claiming that the eugineers had nof
right to impose arbitrary conditions.
The engineers demanded thiuvtheir
proposed scale be effective from Nov.

Atlanta, Ga Nov. 19. A bill to

The bill is expected to raie the issue

purpose. If the measure sfn be

WILD SUPPLY SCOTLAND.
People who laughed at the prospect
of tho United States supplying this
country with ship building . material
have changed their views. The steam

Its freight at Belfast, and coming on

For many years the municipal au

Several mining companies in the
Dragoons are shipping their ore to El
Paso, among which are tbe Copper
Belle, Great Western, Peabody, Black
Diamond, and recently the South Bis
bee Copper company, which is located
in the southern end of the range known
as the Mule mountains, says the Pros
pector. Recent returns from the South
Bisbee's ores show what values obtain
in the carbonate 'ores of the Dragoons.
The Copper Crown of Arizona Min
ing company, capital fSJ,000,000, with
directors residing in Minneapolis, Min
nesota, and in Arizona, own eight
mines in a body, also in the famous
Dragoon mountain range. They are
taking out rioh carbonate copper ore
for future shipment to smelter, and are
sinking a working shaft.
A working force of nine miners and
a foreman are crowding development.
All indicatiens, and development so
far, show that the company ard in good
ore, well located, and should make a
paying mine of the Copper Crowu.
Assays of the ore, made at different
times, show from 9J per cent to 48 per
cent copper with low values in gold
Tho Black Diamond Company south
east of the Copper Crown group, began
systematic developments in 189S, and
haye opened up a fine body of 50 per
copper ore. They aie capitalized at
$2,000,000, and stock is now selling at
par to build a 150-toa smelter.
Large Capital is going into copper
mining iu Cochise county, especially in
the now famous Dragoons.
At Pearce, directly east of the Cop
per Crown and Black Diamond mines,
is located the Commonwealth, which
was bought about live years ago for
$375,000, and has since paid the com
pany over $4,000,000 iu profits. They
are now installing a uew 30-stauip mill.
The ores in the Dragoon copper belt
carry good values iu gold and silver,
making the" possibilities of large prot

dueed in its stamp mills to obtain th.

Dragoon copper ores can be smelted
into bullion, carrying the copper, gold
and silver, and shipped to refineries
and all values saved.

Of Value to Miners
Where a person or company has or
may ran a tunnel for the purpose of de
veloping a lode Or lodes owned by said
peron or company, the monoy so ex
pended iu said tunnel shall be taken
and considered as expended onsaldl.ode
or lodes, and such person or company
shall not be required to perform work
on tho surface of said lode or lodes Mn
order to hold the same, says the Min
ing and Scientific Press. The annual
labor of $100 on each claim may be'per
formed under the above section by
wore aone on a tunnu cutting", 'or
which ie driven to cut such claims. The
patent expenditures of $500 may also be
made in such tunnel. A party may
patent one lode on the line of his tunnel
for each $500 of labor spent in driving
There is no provision of law for 0at
en ting a tunnel site. But it may main
tain an adverse claim for the' protec
tion of its line and tunnel rights.
Every tunnel, whether a crosscut or
run upon a vein, is presumed to be for
the development of lode claims, and in
each case its rights are very clojely de
fined by law. If the proper notice has
been posted on the site, establishing
the boundary lines thereof, 'stakes set,
etc , and the record only made, the
work must be prosecuted with reaconu
bio diligence; the land office rules that
a "reasonable diligence in prosecuting
the-work is one of the essential condi
tions of the implied contract. Negli
gence or want of due diligence will be
construed as working a forfeiture of
thoir right of all undiscovered veins on
the line of tho tunnel." A tunnel may,
like any other kind of claim, be aban
doned; but noglect to work does not ef
fect an abandonment; such neglect only
operates to deprive it of tunnel rights
along Its lines.
