The Outlook for Their
Capture Not a Bad
Lieut. Burktialter and 20
Men on Their Trail
No Scouts this Time, but
Friends of Robinson &
Bridges at the
From Mr. Baker, whe arrived on
Sunday from the scene of the resent
fight in which Bridger and Robinson
lost their lives, the information is
gleaned that Lieutenant Uurkhalter of
Bowie with twenty cavalrymen reach
ed the scene of the killing on Tuesday
and took the trail. Two of Slaughter's
men from San Bernardino went with
with them and no Indian scouts were
allowed with the parly. Their inten
tion was to cross the line if tltc trail
led them that way. They had been
out six days when Mr. Bake:
started for Tombstone and noth
ing had been heard from them.
It is presumed that they are on tho
trail and to-operating with the Mexi
can troops. The law which governs
thecro&sing of the line by troops of
either country stipulates that no
more than two Indian scouts shall
cross with the troops and that these
shall carry no arms. Under these
conditions it is stated that scouts
will not work and consequently
the first pursuit of renegades without
Indian trailers was assigned to Lieut.
Burkhalter and with two friends of the
murdered men at their head the com
mand may be successful in accom
plishing some good. All persons who
are familisr with the Indian situation
along the border scout tbe idea that
the five Apaches seen at Miller's are
the same ones that did tbe killing
near the San Bernardino ranch.
Sheriff Slaughter does not share in
the belief of many persons regarding
Lieut, Clark's apathy in hunting the
renegades, but on the contrary pays
that officer the compliment of calling
him the most indefatigable worker
that he has ever met along the line.
Complaints of depredations by lions
on stock come from almost all the
ranges of Gila county, and many stock
men offer to pay f 10 per scalp, in
addition to the regular bounty of $15
paid by the county. The next legisla
ture should be urged to increase the
bounty on lions and other predatory
animals. -Silver Belt.

Wm. Hassctt one of the old timers
in the history of Tombstone, breathed
his last yesterday evening.
He had been guttering a long time
with consumption which gradiu In
completed its work. He was a native
of Enniss. County Clare, Ireland nnd
was 41 years of age.
In I860 he left Nevada in company
with James Martin and Chas Warner
and in due time arrived in Tombstone
and found work in tbo Contention
mine and remained in Tombstone ever
since. He was a faithful and trust
worthy man as those who sought his
services can attest. He had many
virtues and his faults were few. In
his taking off Tombstone has lost an
other land mark whose energy was
spent in building tbe foundation of
our town and whose memory we can
all cherish for the good he has ac

The editorial opinion expressed in
certain quarters that the revival of
the law respecting the formation of
tbe grand juries in this territory will
effect the status of persons already
convicted under the old law, is mis
leading. It is a well known principle
of law that conviction for a crime must
be mad a under a lawful procedure
and that a good indictment cannot be
had by a grand jury illegally drawn.
Therefore the door is open for hun
dreds of habeas corpus cases and new
prosecutions under the newly discover
ed Rip Van Winkle statutes of our
happy Territory. Florence Enter;

Ho stated that he bad been "doing the

robbed him, the only improbable part
of the story is that he had but $12,000
on his person. A Tombstone man
