COCHISE KEVIEW : SATURDAY EVENING. MARCH 9. 1901
HE TRIED TO GRAB.
Thomas A. Tate Makes a Peculiar
Last Monday morning tho residents
of Bisbee, ptii'tlcuUirly tho-c owning
property on Main stioot, were thrown
into a flutter of excitomont on learning
that Thomas A. Tate hud made a min
irg location on the ground whioh had
bo n covered by tho building burned
last May, and lying immediately west
of the Norton house, and had a man at
work digging there. Although monu
ments had not been put up nor lines
r in, it was presumed that it was M
Tate's intention to claim, under his lo
cation, all the valuable ground to the
east of tho point where he had put tho
man to work up to tho company's pat
ented ground. This laud is owned by
various parties and is co reivd by busi
ness buildings bringing in good rents.
Tho land on which the location notice
was posted and tho man was working is
owned by B. G. Norton, an old and re
spected citizen of Bisbee.
Mr. Norton, at about eleven o'clock
Monday morning, discovered the man
working on his ground and asked him
what ho was doing there, and was in
formed that Tate had put him to worxt
there. Mr. Norton told him that ho
was the owner of the land and ordered
him to quit work and get off the
ground. This the man refused to do
until ho had received orders to do so
from Tate. Mr. Norton then went to
Tate and asked him to order the man
to quit work. This Tate refused to do,
saying that ho had made a mining lo
cation there and proposed to hold it
Mr. Norton then swore out a warrant
against the man at work, Ed. Conroy,
charging him with trespass and mali
Tho case was tried Tuesday evening
before Justice Willeox. The court
room was crowded by an interested au
dience, as it was a matter of great im
portance, especially to tho property
owners on Main s reet. Mr. Norton
was represented bv J. M. O'Connell,
and Conroy and Tate by C. T. Clark, a
lawyer who has recently come hero
from Globe. Mr. Norton testiilod that
he had purchased the ground and had
been in peaceable and undisputed pos
session lor sixteen vears, and that the
digging done by Conroy was damaging
his property, as it interfered with plans
he had made for the erection of a large
building on tho lot at an early day. Mr
Godfrey, a neighbor, testified that to
his knowledge Mr. Norton had been in
peaceable possession of the property
over twelve years, and as to the nature
of tho excavation made by Conroy.
Thomas Wright, a miner, testified that
he had examined the excavation and
found a small mass of decomposed lime,
silica and porphyry slightly stained
with iron, but no further indications of
mineral. Another miner testified in &
similar manner as to the character of
the formation where Conroy had been
On Tate's behalf Conroy simply made
tho statement that he was put to work
there by Mr. Tate, thnt the ground was
soft and could be easi'y removed with
pick and shovel, and that his work was
in the nature of a cut into tho side of
tho hill. Mr. Tate testified that he had
observed wha he considered indica
tions of mineral at the point where he
had put to Conroy to work and lie had
made a mining location, believing that
ho had u right so to do under tho min
ing laws. He stajted that the place
where the work was being done was
composed of a mass of decomposed
limo, porphyry and iron stained with
copper. He had not found any mineral
in place because he had been stopped
from prosecuting the search for it.
This closed the testimony, and tho
case was argued by tho attorneys and
submitted. Justice Willeox found Con
roy guilty of trespass and fined him.
Notice of appeal was immediately filed.
This is the present status of the case.
To tho ReView it looks as though
this was an unwarranted attempt to
grab a very valuable piece of ground
under a technicality of law. It is to be
hoped that the upper court will sustain
Justice Willeox in his just decision and
thus a quietus put on such attempts to

H. Harrison, secretary of tho live

I tion to tho brand book and showed a j
copy of the specifications, whioh call
for a book 5x9 of 400 pages with 8000
brands. Dimensions of the book mean
that of the cover and not of the printed j
pages, which latter are diminutive in
size and the work coarse in quality. I
Tho specifications under title of
"Payment" state that there are no j
available funds to pay for the printing.
This was verified by Mr. McNeil, who I
would have put in a bid had there been j
visible means of payment. !
The sanitary board certified to the I Haiti C
claim when but 1000 of the books had ' lclin "eeL
been delivered, and later the auditor j
drew his warrant for the excessive '
amount and the Arizona Republican
received payment. It will be seen the
clause in the specifications relative to
payment referred only to bidders other
than the Republican.
