Encouraging Railroad News.
Globe Silver Belt
The following letter relative to the con
struction of the Arizona Mineral Belt
Railroad, has been received from Vice
President A. A. McDonell.
Arizona Mineral Belt R. R.,
Auxiliary to Ailaiic & Pacihc.
Flagstaff, A. T., Jmy 28, 1887,
Mlssus Holmls and Kinney, Com
mittee, Globe A. T. Gentlemen: In re
gard to our railroad, lor cvhich you hive
so patiently waited, I can state it will
come without fail. I am afraid the en
terprise is mistrusted generally in con
sequence of continued delays, but the
herculean task of raising so many thous
ands of dollars, to penetrate a country so
little known, has taken until now to com
plete that pirt of the uudertaking, but it
has Leen accomplished in a manner
which all will agree reflects abundant
credit on its promoters, and now we are
assured, with no delay, except by incle
ment weather which may retard our ad
vance from Flagstaff to Benson, we will
accomplish the end in view.
The feelling here is that Globe with
her wonderful resources, which we know
are to be found in her surrounding hills,
and the large acreage of farming and
stock-raising country in its vicinity, when
connected with the mighty railroads,
north and south, will realize that glorious
good time so long and so patiently wait
ed for. To-day we have twenty-five miles
of track completed, twelve more will be
in place by the middle of August. We
are hastening the work to the Rim with
all possible speed, and hope to reach it
before snow flies. The company now
ownes three engines which will be run
running in a few days, also sixty new
box and flat cars loaded with steel rails
are en route here for us. Our daily ship
ments over first ten miles of completed
road, from Flagstaff, averaged forty cars
per day in ties, wood, logs and merchan
dise, a larger freight business than ever
before reached by any railroad for a like
distance ever built in the Southwest.
Our pay roll consists over three hundred
names, and the Company has plenty of
money with which to promptly square
accounts on the 15th of every month.
Four trains run daily from Flagstaff to
the end of track.
We learn that some of your influential
citizens assert and affect to believe that
we arc only trying to tap the timber here
and that thirty-five or forty miles will
witness our finishing point. Please tell
those knowing ones that we have not
reached it yet, and if they will take the
trouble to go over the route and if cover
ing the timber belt fixes the terminus of
our route, they will find the distance be
fore clearing the pineries nearly double
their highest approximation.
Secondly: We are a feeder of the A.
T. & S. F. Co. Their line at Benson is
isolated, and has no connection with
their svtem. and therefore if there was
not a stick of timber in these mountains,
for the sake of placing the Mexican route
in working order with their chain, they
would build the A. M. B. R. R., which
is neccessary to render their Sonora
road an available and profitable route by
which the end in view can be accomplish
ed. We trust that with the assured success
of the measure that even those in Globe
who have so persistently decried the ef
forts to resurrect Globe from her impov
erished condition and make it the
leading city of the south will be satisfi
ed. Have patience. We, at times,
lost ours. But, mark my words,
comining at last without fail.
Very Truly Yours,
A. A. McDonell.
An Elegant Establishment
Undertaking rooms, as a general thing,
are not cheerful places, but when ele
gantly fitted up as are those of A. J.
Ritter in the Grand Hotel building, on
Allen Street, they go far towards remov
ing the gloomy surroundings. The
office, which occupies the entire front of
the large room has been carpeted with
rich body Brussels, while the furniture
is correspondingly elegant. A. portiere,
hung with heavy drapery, sepitales this
parlorlike apartment from the stock-room
where a large and varied assortment of
burial caskets is to be found. Still
further to the rear are two other large
rooms, one of which is used as a store
room and the other as a morgue. Every
thing about the place is as neat as wax,
and taken altogether it is undoubtedly the
most complete establishment of the kind
in the southwest.

has produced in that time about $10,000.
It lies in an excellent location, and de
serves thorough development.
Three shifts were put to work this
week sinking, and a new shaft was start

A station will be cut out at 100 feet and
a drift started. Sinking is progressing
at the rate of abaut three feet a day.
Ore of good quality is being taken out.

and with good prospects before them.
Drifting continues from the 400 foot
level to conect with the winze from the
300. Rock is hard and slow progress is
being made. Steady shipments of ore
are being made to Charleston.
The Epitaph violates no confidence
when it suggests that the mining develop

mistake. But mum's the word.

There has been more train robbing in
the southwest this year thin Ins tver
been know before in the sa'me length of
time, and the robbers have been more suc
cessful than is usual in such cases in
evading the officers. On April 27, the
west bound Southern Pacific train was
robbed near Pantano station, about 20
miles east of Tucson, and three robberies
followed in quick succession in Texas.
List Wednesday night the Southern Pa
cific train, going west, was stopped
and robbed near the place where the
robbery was committed last April. Pre
vious to these robberies, train robbing
has been neither safe nor profitable, on
the lines of the Pacific roads. The over
land train was stopped near Verdi, Nev
ada, November 6, 1870, by five men and
$40,000 secured . The robbery was plan
ned and carried out by H. A. Davis, but
the money was nearly all recovered and
Davis and his associates went to the
Penetentiary. Davis was afterwards par
doned out, but was killed while attempt
ing to rob a stage near Eureka On
November 7, 1S70, the day following the
Verdi robbery, the overland train was
stopped near Pequad, Nev., by six men
and five of them were sent to the peniten
tiary. On August 31, 1881, five men
threw a train from the track near Cape
Horn, but did not succeed in committing
a robbery. The overland train was
stopped at Mansello January 22, 1883,
but Messenger Ross, successfully resis
ted the robbeis. There was a large
amount of money on the train, and had,
if not been for the heroic action of the
messenger, the robbers would have made
a large haul. The last robbery commit
ted on any of the Pacific roads previous
to the Pantano robbery last April, was
the Gage robbery committed between
Gage and Deming November 24, I883.
In addition to robbing the train the rob
bers murdered Engineer Webster, after
the locomative had been thrown from the
track. They secured about $27,000, but
were all caught and lodged in jail in this
city. They subsequently broke out and
were all killed except Kit Joy, who is now
serving a 99 year sentence in the
Territorial penitentiary. This year, the
train robbers have been more successful
in their work, but they may yet be caught
and suffer for their crimes.- Southwest

Tho Train Robbers Again.
Mr. Lyman H. Smith, an old time
trailer, after an interview with the Yuma
Indians that accompanied Sheriff Shi
bell and posse, decided to look into the
matter himself. He therefore telegraph
ed to Yuma for Indian trailers with
wnom he was well acquainted. They
were sent here on the next train. He
was by kindness of Major Noyes, furn
ished v ith in escort often soldiers. On
Tuesday night last they camped at the
Mountain Spring. Next morning
when looking around, to their
surprise they found the trail of a
man that had come down from the
mountain to the spring for water.
Having apparently secured it the tracks
led directly up the mountain in the di
rection of the cave discovered by the last
posse. The trail was followed up and
about 400 yards north of the first cave a
second and much larger one was found.
The mouth of this cave is not more than
two feet square, but inside it is of un
known proportions. Some of the party
present explored it to the depth of about
300 yards, but reached no end. This evi
dently was the robbers' headquarters.
Finding themselves pursued the robbers
mounted horses and went farther up the
range with Jndians and sodliers in pur
suit. The robbers were well mounted,
and after traversing nearly the length of
the range they entered a canyon leading
directly towards the San Pedro. Un
fortunately, before the river was reached
the track of the robbers' horses were
obliterated by a band of horses that were
running loose in that direction. The
party then returned to town.
Another posse will be immediately or
ganized for pursuit. Citizen.
