2I!c2cjontI E3i:tIr-on Killed Iy
Laic Wednesday evening Judge
Nichols received a despatch from Mr.
DeLong, of Fort Bowie, stating that
Barney Riggs had killed Richmond
Hudson, at the ranch of Mr. Osborne,
seven miles east of Dos Cabezas. Con
stable Hudson was informed of the
killing, and h?, with E. F. Conover
and M. Marion, immediately left for
the scene of the tragedy. On Thurs
day M. Moss, belter known as "Dead
shot," who was present at the mur-de-,
was in Wilcox, and .gave the fol
lowing version of the affair: He siys
that just at dusk Wednesday evening,
some Mexicans came .to' Osborne'
pb.ee, driving about thirty head of
horses, and asked permission to cor
ral them for the- night. Permission
was given them, and the horses had
just been corralled, and Richmond
Hudson, who assisted in the work,
was standing in the gate, when r. shot
was lired and Hudson fell to the
ground Two moro shots rapidly
followed, all taking effect the first
entering tho head about two inches
over tho right car, another in the
neck and one in the hand. Tho shoot
ing was done by Barney Riggs, who
had approached the corral afoot un
seen by any one present. Riggs evi
dently had a hoise concealed near by,
as he disappeared immediately after
the murder. He went to the house
of his cousin, Thomas Riggs, where
his family is stopping, told them that
he had killed Hudson, and then tak
ing the best horse on Ihe ranch, rede
oft and nothing has been heard of bin;
There was a foud of long standing
between the two men, whi?h at last
culminated in this murder. They
were both old resident of Dos Oa-be.-.as,
and well known ail through
this section. The murdered man was
about twenty-three years old, and
was generally well liked.
On Thursday Justice Nichols went
to tho place of Os'oerne to hold an in
quest en the body of Hudson, and up
to the hour of going to press he has
not returned ; neither lus Constable

taking out of the fire one of the moct

this old iii.iu w'no makes iion bend ti
his vrill, looked very cross with the
glow of the "lire u;jou his face and the
perspiration rolling down from his
brow, and thought that we were gaz
ing at old Vulcan, himself and we
saw that it t-jok .3 real skill to master
the difficult piece of woik in his
ha-.uh ; but by wailing our curiosity
was satisfied, for we saw tho massive
piece of hot iron twisted and turned
into all shai'e-i, and finally ic turned
out to be a steel hay fork, with a ca
pacity of lifting four thousand pounds
of hay from the wagon to the hay
stack, and 0110 which will prove a
great saving to hay makers.
Mr. P.ige is owreiowded with work
of ail kinds, which con-es to him, not
0:1 account of his smooth and polished
manners, but from his superior workmanship.-
It is doubtful if he has
his equal as a workman on the Pa
cific coast ; if he has, wo have never
come across any of their work. We
predict for Sir. Page one of the largest
and mo3t prosperous business in his
line of any in the l'erritory.

The President of the United States
always uses new money. He never
gets any old notes, except in change
when making purchases. His salary
is paid him in monthly ins 'ailments
?4,1GCCG on the last day cf each
mouth and the treasurer always
make;, it a point to send him notes of
the latest issue. Mr. Cleveland, as
his predecessors have done, keeps a
private bank account with Riggs &
Co., and makes a deposit tho first of
even- mouth, reserving enough from
his salary to pay current expenses
and setting a good example by put-ting-the
rest aside for a rainy day. I
am told that his account has shown a
balance as large as ?3.1,0G0, as he has
an income aside from his official
salary. While he has never been a
money-getter and has earned in his
profession all he has ever made, Mr.
Cleveland has an economical disposi
tion and no luxurious tastes like Irs
immediate predecessor. Before he
entered public, life, when he. was mak
ing from ?10,000 to 15,000 a year bv
his practice and could have lived like
a lord, his expenses, I am told, were
never more than $2,500 a year, and
he enjoyed life as much as most men
do. His frugal habits were acquired
in youth, for he was not born with a
golden or eveu a silver spoon in his
mouth, and he has found his pleasure
in hard work. Wellington Capital
