Why Cutting was Cast Into :i
A number of the readers of The
Tombstone have expressed a desire to
learn tho facts which led to the im
prisonment of A. K. Cutting by the
Mexican authorities. The following
is a statement of the facts:
While Cutting was editor of El
Centinela at Paso del Norte, Emigdio
Medina canvassed the town for sub
scribers and advertisements for a new
Spanish paper which he proposed to
establish there. In his paper Cutting
denounced Medina ns a fraud and
said his proposed paper was a scheme
to rob advertisers. Medina caused
Cutting's arrest and had him taken
into a Mexican court where he was
obliged to sign a retraction. Cutting
at once upon his release went over to
El Paso and in the Herald "of that
city published the following :
El Paso, Tex., June 18, 18SG.
To Emigdio Medina, of Paso del Norte :
In a late issue of El Cenliuela, pub
lished in Paso del Nor;e, I made the
assertion that Emigdio Medina was a
fraud and that the Spanish newspa
per he proposed to publish in Paso del
Norte was a scheme to swindle ad-.
vertisers,- etc. This morning said
Medina took the matter to a Mexican
court, where I was forced to sign a
reconciliation. Now I do hereby
reiterate my assertion that said Emig
dio Medina is a fraud and a dead beat;
also that his taking advantage of the
Mexican law and forcing me to a re
conciliation was contemptible and
cowardly and in keeping with the
odious reputation of said Emigdio
Medina; and should said Emigdio
Medina require American satisfaction
for the rtiteration, I will be pleased
to grant him all lie may desire at any
time and in any manner.
A. K. Cutting.
There is a law in the penal code of
Mexico providing for the punishment
of crimes committed iu a foreign
country either against Mexicans or
foreigners. Said article reads as fol
"Article 1SG, title 4, chapter 1.
Crimes co unfitted in a foreign coun
try by Mexican, or by a foreigner
against a Mexican, shall be punished
in the republic according to law."
When Cutting returned to Paso del
Norte he was arrested and thrown
into prison, his arrest being based on
tho above law.

Meeting Geo. W. Cheyney this
morning, a reporter of The Tomb

settled it with the company, and
orders came on at once to clae down
the mines immediately as the com

with silver at that price.
Reporter How long Mr. Cheyney
do you think that the mines .will re

Eugene Sieger editorial writer in
the Free Press identified some manu
script written in German to be the
handwriting of Schwab. The manu
script was that of the celebrated
"Blood" editorial published in the

prosecution then caused a number of
articles to be read by tho Alarm and
other Socialistic organs. These all
preached revolution in more or lesa
startling language. Another article
gave 'minute instructions how to
handle dynamite for revolutionary
purposes. For further instructions
the reader was lequested to apply to
"A. S. the Alarm." Relating to fill

complete. At the oeginning of tho
article, dynamite was referred to as
