THE UNITED CLOBE.
Phelps, Dodge & Co. Resume Work on
Their Globe Property.
Work was resumed last Monday
morning by tho United Globe mines un
der the superintendence of N. S. Ber
ray, and witb Chauncey Gunn as fore
man. On Tuesday there wero 50 men
employed and the force will bo increas
ed from tlmo to tiino as the work in
hand shall warrant. As already an
nounced in the Silver Belt that the
sinking of a now shaft would bo the
first undertaknig, ground wus broken
on Monday for that purpose and sink
ing is progressing with two shifts em
ployed. The location of tho now shaft
is on the Grey claim, 420 feet south and
a little west of the old shaft. It will
be a three compartment shaft two
compartments eaoh 4x4i feet, and one
4jx6 feet. Work will soon progress
rapidly in the now shaft, from tho sur
faco and from several levels in the Grey
mino, and it is expected that by tho
time the Hoosier shaft has been strip
ped (which is now being done), and
the hoist and boilers removed and in
stalled at tho now site, tho shaft will
have been so far advanced as to be
ready for the cages. Tho business-like
manner in which the now management
has started the work is gratifying to
tho people locally, as it undoubtedly
will bo to tho company.
- Supt. Walter Douglas of Bisbee, and
Supt. L. D. Ricketts of Nacosari
Mexico, went to California this week
to spend the 27th. Mr. Beu Williams'
birthday, with the Williams family at
Milton. When Mr. Williams lived in
Bisbee it was his custom to have a few
of his closest friends to take dinner
with him on his birthday and Mr.
Douglas and Mr. Ricketts were always
of tho number if within reach. Mrs.
Williams is one of the very few women
who can produce a dinner worth going
a thousand miles to eat. The old Cop
per Queen employes heartily join their
popular young chief in wishing tneir
former superintendent many happy re
turns on February twontyseventh.

loon keeper who was a member of the
gang. The gang was located by Lee
Hobbs, deputy at Clifton.

Supervisor Reay, speaking of Naco,
stated that the border town w9 forg
ing ahead and continues to bo a bust
ling city. It is not expected that tho
now town of Douf laswillinterfere with
the material growth or prosperity of
Naco as the business tributary to the
latter will not be affected by tho rival
town, besides a new railroad to the
Cananeas is among tho oarly probrbil
ities. A special which has boon furnished
by tho A. & S. E. Ry. Co., through tho

A party of nine railroad men came in
from the Junction Monday evening to
go to work for the new Greene road.
They left the next day for Sonora and
are now out about 12 miles.
The O. K. stable here has found that
its livery business has grown so large
as to justify them in getting more
stock and enlarging their sheds. Man
ager McKim cannot supply the de
mand for teams for the, Cananeas and
Bisbee. He hopes to facilitate matters
by adding more animals and buggies
to his already large livery business.
A dispute over a game of monte Wed
nesday night came near ending in a
serious affair. John Hall beat another
man over the head with a six shooter,
which made severul ugly wounds. It

E. A. McFarland came near meeting
with a serious accident Monday even
ing. While in Sonora with Scott White
in the Greene buggy, the horses be
came unmanageable and in turning the
buggy Mr. McFarland was thrown out
on the ground. He escaped with only
a few bruises, but it was feared that he
was seriously injured.
The Greene Consolidated Copper
company's traction engine was given a
trial Sunday, which proved to be quite
a success. It took some little time to
get up the first steam, but after getting
up steam the engineer moved the en
gine quite easily. The engine started
out alone and circled around several
times on this side and in Naco, Sonora.
Three wagons were afterwards coupled
on her and was pulled backwards and
forwards all over the country. Quite
a crowd stood in front of the Greene
office watching its first trial. Another
train load of traction wagons and an
engine came in Wednesday. The
Greene people now have at Naco two
traction engines and twelve cars, which
will be all these people will receive.
These engines and wagons will be put
in service in a very short time. Each
engine will pull three wagons, and
while one train is at the Naco end tho
other will be at Cananea, so as to have
both of them going and coming at the
Na"co barely escaped a hold-up Sun
day night, and but for the prompt ao
tlon of some of our citizens we would
havo been .called upon to ' 'cough up."
A doctor drove into Naco from Bisbee
late Sunday evening and tied his team
to the O. K. hitching post, and had
hardly left it when it was stolen by
some one. The doctor soon missed it
and found the tea-n hitched neur Curry
& Co.'s store. Ho took it back to tho
stable and tied it up, when it was stolen
again. The doctor, with several par
ties, started out to look for the team
and to catch the party with it. After
a long search tho team was found over
in Sonora with tho party who stolo it.
Tho man tried to escape, but was
caught and brought back across the
line. Another party was near tho
buggy at the tlmo but escaped. In the
buggy was found a lot of clothing and
food, and it could bo easily seen that it
was the intention of these parties to
steal tho buggy and team, get it across
the lino and then go through tho town,
hold it up, and nmke a break for Soro
ra. But one of tho men was captured
and he wus taken to Tombstone Thurs
day to await the action of the next
grand jury. Tho people of Naco havo
been looking for a holdup for some
tlmo and several .officers havo been
watching the gambling resorts, every
night for tho last tbreo weeks, and
havo boon fully prepared for anything
of this kind.

On Sunday a man named Thomas
Warner was brought to Tombstone
from Naco and admitted to the hospi
tal. The now patient was found to be
in a serious condition and suffering
from violent injuries which placed him
at death's door, and from which he did
not recover, the unfortunate man dying
last night. The peculiar circumstances
of his injuries and condition lead to
further investigation and a coroner's
iury was summoned, who viewed the
remains, heard testimony, and rendored
a verdict that deceased came to his
death as the result of injuries received
at the hands of a party oV parties un
known, the inference being that de

strangely, and was believed to be suf
fering from tho excessive use of liquor.
When seen later he was brought
here, The examination showed his
nose was broken and his head and body
badly bruised, with indications that he
had been hit with a club or blunt in
strument. Who administered these
violent injuries is not known, and fur
ther investigation is being instituted to
bring1 the facts to light. The deceased,
who is known as "Soldier Tom," is a
