Monday afternoon a telegram was
received here conveying the sail in
telligence that Hugh Warren, an old
resident nf Flagstaff, but who w
iliett employed in building a turntable
for the Atlantic & Pacific; at Albuquer
que, had been instantly killed by A
derrick falling upon him. The acci
dent occurred at 3:16 p. m. Monday.
Warren was foreman of the stone
masons who were coiii-tructlng the
turntable. The insecure fastenings of
the derrick mast was the cause nf the
tragedy. Id falling the big mast
struck Warren squarely in the bask,
crushing in his left side and causing
an initant and perhaps painless death.
Warren was well ami favorably known
along the line of the. Atlantio & Pa
cific, by whom he had been employed
for a number of J ears, but always
claimed Flagstaff as his home. The
only known relatives of thn deceased
are supposed to be living in Boston.

train, they compelled Firemau Bart to
dismount and uncouple the mail And

Messenger Summers and his helper

side doors of the express car and ran
back toward the train. Summers

Deputy Sheriff Fletcher Faircliild was
on No. 2 coming up from Kingman
with Tom Sims, the Mexican cook,
wanted here as a witness in a larceny
case, and ordering his prisoner
to proceed for Flagstaff, got off At
Peach Springs and started on the trail
of the robber. Sheriff Cameron left
here Tuesday morning for the scene.
The dead bandit has been identified AS
a cowboy formerly in the employ of
the Arizona Cattle Company here. It
is impossible for the bandits to escape,
owing to the topography of the country
adjacent to Peach Springs, and their
speedy Arrest is expected.
