Was Near Tombstone. The Outlaw
Returns Presumably to Recover
A sonsation was created in Tomb
stono Wednesday when it became
known that that section had been visi
ted by no less distinguished personage
than Burt Alvord, the much-wanted
ex-constable, train-robber and jail-
According to reliable information
received by tho Prospector, Alvord and
a Yaqui Indian wore at tho Warren
ranch in Sulphur Spring Valloy, near
Pearce, on Sunday. This ranch is the
ono formerly owned by Alvord. The
only occupant of the ranch at the time
of tho visitation of tho outlaw was
Frank Swink. Alvord domanded sup
per, saying ho was hungry and he and
the Yaqui Indian enjoyed a hearty
meal. A little later the two loft,
warning Swink not to leave the place
or divulge their whereabouts. The
two returned tho next evening and af
ter eating another supper, propared to
remain all night, Alvord meanwhile
chatting about the experiences and
how ho evaded tho oflicers.
Alvord and his companion were to
leave that night, hence retired early
and at a late hour the two left the
house. Swink was told to remain in
the house and presuming the two vis
itors might still be in the neighbor
hood, he obeyed orders. On the morn
Swink discovered that the two men
who had been tho recipients of his hos
pitality showed their ingratitude by
taking five horses from the ranch
two of the horsjs being fine animals be
longing to Swink. The latter mourns
the loss of his two pet horses to such a
degree he vowed vengence against tho
outlaw and hastened to Pearce, gave
the news and joined a posse to follow
the trail. Sheriff Del Lewis immedi
' ately arranged for a scouring of the
country and with posse headed by him
self started from Tombstone without
The sheriff and posse arrived in
Tombstone Wednesday night, took a
brief rest and were again on the trail
early next morning The trail was
plainly followed, the tracks leading di
rect across tho country from tho Dra
goons and passing just below Tomb
stone near the hospital w,here the
tracks are plainly discernable. The
sheriff was obliged to remain here on
important official business, but joins
'the party later, if necossary, while the
rest of the posse including Swink,
pressed forward. Deputy Porter Mc
Donald is also out heading another
posse and it is hoped Alvord will be
headed off before he crosses tho bor
der. Tho object of Alvord's visit is be
lieved to securo the varied spoils of the
hold-up near his. former ranch, which
was the rendezvous of the band at that
time. It has always been suspected
that considerable hold-up money was
buried here by Alvord and his visit
there at this time lends color to the
