Three Vt'estern Desperadoes Slain
The lawlessness prevalent in Col
fax County, New Mexico, the past
few months culminated dangerous
ly on the 16th inst. to the aggres
sive party. Dick Rogers has been
a desperado and outlaw since last
fall, when he killed a man in Raton
and took to the plains and joined
cowboy friends. In December last
Shcrift Kixenbaugh was fatally
wounded in an encounter with Ro
gers, and was unsuccessful in effec
ting his capture. Last month Jim
Mastcrsons, Marshal of Raton, went
to Chihuahua, N. M., to take Rog
ers, but was disarmed and made to
r nnpfi. nnd was fmallv tied in a
chair at a dance hall and severely
beaten over the head with revolv
ers by Rogers' friends. A fraudu
lent militia company was organiz
ed by Mastersoirs friends, and sev
eral efforts made to catch Rogers
without avail. Last week the com
pany was disbanded by order of
Governor Sheldon, and oh their re
turn to Raton were captured by
Rogers, who had surrendered at
Blossburg meantime and been ad
mitted to bail in $1,000, just the a
mount of the Governor's standing
reward for his capture. Rogers had
enlisted the sympathy of several
citizens, and at a mass-meeting it
was resolved that the bogus militia
company must go. Its leaders
were marched out of town over the
State line into Colorado, Rogers
leading the avengers, Then Rog
ers returned to Raton and began
gathering his cowboy forces for anj
emergency. Sunday one of Rogers
followers, named Bill Todd, was ar
rested in Springer by Deputy Sher
iff Jesse Lee. The prisoner Todd
immediately telegraphed Rogers
that he was under arrest. Rogers
went to Springer with a number of
men, who first attacked a constable,
beating him severely overthe head,
and ordered him to leave the coun
ty at once. Then they went to the
county jail, where officers Lee and
Kimberlin had taken refuge. A
hard fight with guns ensued, in
which Rogers, Ed King and "Red
River Tom" were instantly killed by
the officers on the inside of the jail.
The remnant of Rogers' party left
the town, and are awaiting re-enforcements
to come a sain and at
tack the victorious officers at the
jail. When they arrive it is thought
another severe fight will be inevita
ble and that many will be killed.
Yesterday afternoon Dick Rogers
and three of his pals, one of whom
was the notorious Rob Lee, a shoot
er from Raton, were at Maxwell
Station, eleven miles north of Sprin
ger. They were all armed, and pre
sented rather an ugly array. A
passenger train pulled by them.
Rogers stood a little apart from the
n st of the gang, and as the plat
forms of the cars moved past him
he dropped his Winchester into po
sition, as if looking for somebody
to shoot at or intimidate the pas
sengers and make it appear to them
that he. was the bad man his past
career would indicate him to be.
After this performance at Maxwell
Uhe quartet was re-enforced and
rode their cow ponies to Springer i
and urged the fight. The citizens
of Springer are in sympathy with
the officers in this trouble, and a
number of brave men have volun
teered to stand by them. The ex
citement is intense, and much un
easiness is felt for the approach of
night, for no one can foretell what
it may bring forth. The people of
Springer appealed to the District
Commander for troops, and soldiers
at Fort Union were ordered to move
quickly to the scene of! action in or
der to prevent furthoi trouble.
Koai E..&. Sanforu
We cheerfull3r extract the follow
ing complimentary notice from the
Mohave County Miner : "From ma
ny sources public and private, we
gather the pleasing intelligence
that our friend, E. Al. Sanford, of
Prescott, is steadily and rapidly
rising toward the top of the legal
profession in this territory. And
why should he not? He has brains,
pluck, energy and i full of work
ing power and disposition. This
memorandum springs from the fact
that we have just gone over his
tracks in a case, the decision of
which we knew would seriously ef
fect the interests of the printers.
We refer to the case of Smith & Co.
vs. the County of Mohave ; and we
could not but admire the patient,
laborious and exhaustive research
he has made respecting the law
points involved and which labor
resulted in a victory for his clients.
We commend him to the people of
the territory as one of its best-read
attorneys, and as an honorable and
The Courier says Mr. J. W. Sul
livan, the enterprising stockraiser,
has come to Prescott from his ran
ches, and tolls us that in two weeks
he. will start for Kansas citr several
car loads of horses, mules and cat
tle.. He is the first citizen of Nor
thern Arizona who tried the experi
ment of shipping cattle to" Kansas
city. His first shipment was made
under difficulties and was not a fi
nancial-success ; but he has learned
wisdom from experience and will
from now on make the business a
paying one. Mules raised by him
are not large, but arc wanted for
street car lines in Kansas city and
for work in fields farther south. His
cattle are large ; horses nol large
but tough. This movement, which
was inaugurated by him will grow
to be of great benefit to this por
tion of Arizona, stockmen of which
arc now compelled to ship their
surplus animals out of Arizona.
Methods that TVould Suit.
The position of the Mormon
press on the way that men guilty
of certain crimes should be tried,
and when convicted punished, is
not original. It was anticipated by
the Irishman who was sentenced to
be hanged. He admitted the crime
and did not object to the punish
ment, but insisted that as he had a
throat difficulty, the rope should be
placed under his arms. The Mor
mon press can easily show that ev
erything done at present is illegal,
even up to the rulings of the Su
preme Court of the United States,
but still insists that all that is ask
ed for is that the trials shall be
fair. It is clear enough that any
trial which will convict will be held
as unfair and illegal by that press,
which has not the manhood or in
tegrity to advise the people to a
void trials or apprehensions of
trials, by coming within the laws.
An Indignation Meeting.
A. large mass-meeting was held in
Tucson, on the night of the 14th,
to express their indigaation against
the work of the Territorial Legisla
ture, which adjourned on the 13th
after a sixty days session. Strong
resolutions were adopted denounc
ing venality, extravagance and job
bery, by which, over $1,000,000 of
subsidies were granted to various
schemes $100,009 to building an
Insane Asylum, over $700,000 to a
railroad and $300,000 to other ques
tionable projects. There were only
thirty-six members all told, yet an
appropriation bill passed to pay
the clerks over $16,000, also an ap
propriation to pay the printing for
the session of $20,800r to be paid
by the Territory. The subsidy bills
were lavishly drawn, and are said
to show unmistakable jobbery.
County courts were created against
the strongest protests of the ico
nle, which increases the taxes
many counties over $15,000 a year.
The salaries of many officials were
doubled. Much feeling is express
ed against the Governor for appro
ving these bills. The meeting ap
pointed a committee to devise the
means to have Congress annul the
obnoxious laws, and to institute
proceedings in court to stop the
payment of corrupt appropriation
bills. Never before in the history
of Arizona has there been so much
venal legislation. Both parties,
with but few individual exceptions,
participated in the meeting.
Rough on the Saints.
The San Francisco Chronicle's
Salt Lake special says : John Nich
olson, associate editor of the Deser
et News, was arrested this morning
charged with polgamy and unlaw
ful cohabitation. Chas. Penrose,
the senior editor of the aforesaid or
gan of the Mormon church, is, and
has been, hiding from the officers
of the law for the past month. John
Taylor, the president of the church,
is also missing and the April con
ference is on that account, it is sup
posed, ordered to be held at Logan,
a stronghold of the Mormons.
How i3 Th;s 1
The legislature of Montana, which
but recently closed its labors, hav
ing accomplished much good, pass
cd an appropriation bill covering all
expenses, which was less than twen
ty-five hundred dollars. This paid
for all printing, clerk hire, etc. Oth
cr northern territories have run the
machinery of their legislative ses
sions for less than one thousand
dollars. In Arizona it cost tax-pay
ers over fiftv thousand dollars !
How does this sound? Prescott
A Wig Day for Arizona.
An Arizona lawyer has just eng
dcared himself to his fellow citizens
bv shooting an editor. The editor's
partner immediately shot the law
yer, doubtless in order to thorough
ly work up the sensation tor an "ex
tra" edition, but was himself way
laid and extinguished that night by
some unknown parties. The total
bag for the day was two editors and
one lawver. Altogether, it was a
great day for Arizona. San Fran
A Wolf Story.
Two Sawyers from Farmington,
Minn., and a teamster from Little
Rock, Ark., while taking the body
of a dead man from Joseph Moses'
camp, on Jump river, Wis., to Chip
newa Falls', were attacked about
midnight by wolves. The driver
plied his whip on his team, while
the two saw3rers, with their Win
chestcre, killed twenty-seven wolves
and arrived at the Falls all right,
but pretty well seared.
Boomers Clearing Out.
President Cleveland has issued a
proclamation warning the Okla
homa boomers to keep off the In
dian Territory, telling them that,
if necessary, the military power of
the United States will be used to
force them to obey the lav;. This
will be a disappointment to the

things in their favor from the new
