Billy Stiles Again.
Billy Stiles has escaped again, this
timofrom Del Lewis, Sheriff of Co
chise county. It will be remembered
that Stiles was discharged from custo
dy a short time ago by Judge Davis.
Learning that Stiles was in Casa
Grando, Lewis went down to arrest
him on the charge of assault with in
tent to kill George Bravin who was
jailor at Tombstono at the time of the
escape of Stiles, Alvord and Bravo
Juan. Arriving in Casa Grando, Stiles
wag located in one of the saloons and
arrested. He was handcuffed and about
to be shackled, when the constable
said if he would abstain from shackling
him that he would assist in guarding
him. Lewis agreed to this plan. While
Lewis was engaged Stiles made a break
for the door and tho Constable standing
botweon him prevented Lewis from
reaching his man. Stiles escapod
through the back door and disappeared
in tho dark. The general opinion is
that Stiles will mako good his escape
this timo. This will be Arizona's gain
as Stiles is one of the hardest cases and
most treacherous outlaws that ever op
erated in Arizona.
Speaking of tho escape of Stiles tho
Phoenix Republican says:
"A constable at Casa Grande and tho
citizens of that place, it is statad by
special advices yesterday combined to
thwart the efforts of an officer from Co
chise county, armed with a warrant, to
rearrest Billy Stiles, a noted train rob
ber and desperado, who was a promi
nent participant in tho Fairbanks and
Cochise holdups. He was liberated
from the county jail at Tucson about
three weeks' ago on hi own recogni
zance, following which Wm. Downing
the last of tho train robbers under con
finmont at Yuma for train robbery was
released on bail. The people of Co
chise county, where the desperados
wore most active in their operations,
did not recoive the news of the release
of tho dangerous criminals with much
favor. They were so disconcerted that
Shoriff Del Lewis was finally given a
warrant for the arrest of Stiles, who is
charged with attempting the life of one
of tho jailors of the Tombstone jail at
the time of the well known jail break
It appeared to tho people of Tomb
stone and other points of Cochise coun
ty thnt tho authqrities were derelict in
-their duties and made but feoble at
tempts to punish a gang of as blood
thirsty criminals as has ever infested
the wilds of this territory. Lewis fin
ally located his man at Casa Grdnde
ana placed handcuffs on his wrists.
Temporarily he loft him in the hands
of a local constable and returned to find
that his bird had flown and the resi
dents of Casa Grande seemed to be in
groat glee. Ho offered sums of money
to any ono who would successfully as
sist him in recapturing Stiles, but the
train robber seemed to have nothing
but friends at that place, and the peo
ple laughed at the efforts of tho officer
who attempted to discharge his dutv.
Lewis searched faithfully, but- could
not again trap his quarry.
Stiles is the criminal who when first
captured less than two years ago turn
ed states evidence, and later liberated
his erstwhile companions who were con
fined at Tombstone. Tho gang follow
ing that episode was at large for some
time, but several months agoStilessur
rendered himself to a Wells, Fargo &
Co. special detective, and was placed
in jail at Tucson.

rlo, who was arrested at Naco by oxf
sheriff Scott White for the murder o
two Mexicans in the Dragoons in 1898
came up before Justice Clark at Tomb
stone on Tuesday. The qvidence point
ed strongly to tho guilt of tho defend
ant, yet taking into consideration that

pants in tho murder were caught and

tho justice, in uitlorence to the opinion
of District Attorney Land, that about
all the evidence that could bo produced
was in court and owing to tho death of

the news that the stage had been
looted at Fronteras on Wednesday
Fronteras is the half-way place be
tween Bisbee and Nacosari and both
stages stop there over night. Several
passengers were en route to Bisbee and
carried their personal belongings, in
the shape of valises, tools, etc., on the
stage. Sometime during the night a
band of Mexicans sneaked into the cor
corral and carried off everything of
value to be found in the stage, which
consisted of clothing and bedding.
The theft was not discovered until
next morning and they made their es
cape. The Mexican police were noti
fied and they immediately took the
trail in pursuit. When the stage left

capture was certain.
