COCHISE COUNTY PIONEERS
FORM COUNTY SOCIETY
DOUGLAS. Aril.. March 23. The
Pioneer's Association of Cochise couu-
ty was formally organized here yes
terday during one of the most mem-
crabel gatherings in the history of
the southwest. There were morottun
150 old timers at the meeting. A great
majority cf them registered before
entering the hall, but so anxious were
many of them to get in and g-t seats
and make themselves comfortable
that they didn't taken the time to
register, therefore many of fhosa who
were present will not be found on the
first Orhclal register of Cochise pio
neers. The day broke beautiful and clear
end early In the day pioneer men and
women, many of them accompanied
by their children and their grand-chil-drtn.
began to arrive from all sec
tion? of this and rearby counties.
Trains, automobiles and horse-draw n
vehicles were the means of transpor-
Session Was Short
When th- pioneers settled down t3
organise in the afternoon they made
short work of It. The officers at the
head cf the organization were unani
mously elected as follows:
President. B. A. Packard, Douglas:
Mce President, C M. Kenaud. Pearce;
.ce President. James F. Duncan, of
Tombstei.e; Vice President 11. A.

Williams. BIsbee; Vice President. H.
Etz. Benson: Secretary-Treasurer II.
C. Stlilman. Douglas.
The constitution and by-laws were
left in the hands of a committee and
when it completed its w-ork due pub
licity will be given same. The busi
ness session of the convention was
not is session more than an hour.
Douglas Claims Oldest
On the official register, in charge
cf F. V. Moreno, appears the name of
Murray Mclnernay, of Douglas, who
came to this county In 1S6S. There
were lots of them who came a year
or two later, but Mr. Mclnernay says
that he i the oldest resident in,these
parts 60 far as be has been able to
ascertain and the register bears him
The first thing on the program was
the informal meeting at the Airdome,
then dinner, then the concert, the
convention and matinee. In the even
ing the dance at the Hotel Gadsden
was the main attraction.
Spirit of the Times
The speaker, Hon. John S. Boyle,
paid a glorious tribute to the pioneers
remarking that it wae the strong, the
determined and the brave who make
history, who do the pioneering; the
weak remain at home and take the
easiest course of resistance. "Yon men
who catne here years ago. who braved
the desert; yon men and women who
fought Indians and planted civiliza
tion where there was only an arid
desert, are to be honored. Why did
you brave all those dangers? For ns.
We honor you. We who have come
to Douglas, a city pt 18 years old.

dangers of a wild country and mad 3
a place for us.
"I hope that there are among you
men and women who, before the
next meeting of thi3 body, will write
down the history of the early days
in Arizona and that it will be pre
served so that we of the later gener
ations may read and know it. I do
not know sufficiently well to speak on
the subject, and I make this, my apol
ogy, for not attempting a speech to
day." added (Mr. Boyle.
One does not catch the eloquence
of Ms words, the poise of his body,
h tone of his voice or the whole
' pirit, in which Mr. Boyle spoke, and
o all the pleasure of those few mo

who beard, will remember In days to
come the short talk of Hon. John P.
Boyle before the first convention of

IS LOW IN FEBRUARY
The alects of labor troubles and
the voluntary policy of curtailment
adopted by most of the prominent
copper producers, are seen in the
combined February output figures of
27 prominent producers. The curtail
ment policy as a general rule did not
take full effect until this month.
The February copper production of
27 of the more important producers
listed below, amounted to 93,645,350
pounds, compared with 112.394,564
pounds In January, a reduction of
18,743,113 rounds, or 17 per cent. The
production of those properties this
month should show an equally large
decrease from February, as a result
of a full month of voluntary curtail
ment adopted by many mines.
The porphyry group, comprising
Utah, CtT.no. Kay Nevada, Miami, In
spiration and New Cornelia, last
month turned out 36.122.2o4 pounds
of copper, compared with 39.702,260
pounds, in January, a decrease of

comp-inies. turned out .362.617 lbs.
less copper last month than In Janu
ary. Anaconda accounted for 3,500.
000 pounds of the reduction. East
Butte 1.63S.450 pound, and Nona
Butte 1.204.167 pounds. The restrict

But three companies In February
showed an increae in production over
January. Inspiration increased its
production by 100,000 pounds and Su
Krlor by 49 390 pounds. Calumet ft
Arizona showed a gain of 2.744.000
pounds. The increase at the latter
property was due to smelter output
'n January falling below normal. The
concentrates that were held back that
month were put through thi mill In
February, which accounted for the

REFUGEES IN COLUMBUS
EXPRESS A DOUBT AS TO
MARTIN LOPEZ SLAYING
COLUMBUS, N. M.. March 24. A
Mormon settler and his son arrived
here today from La Ascension, having
escaped from Martin Lopez's band of
Villa men during the battle of Boquilla
del Marquesote. 12 miles southwest of
La Ascension. The Mormons said they
escaped during the fighting and had
only meager details or the battle, but
said they had been told there that it
was Felix Lopez and not Martin Lo-
pez who was killed during the battle '
Wednesday. They said another Villa
officer was known to have been killed
but his name was unknown to them.
The Mormons said Lopez and his men
had plenty of American paper money
when they arrived at La Ascension In
denominations of $10 and $20, evl
denty a part of the $5,000 ransom paid
for the release of "Bunk" Spencer at J
Ojitos. They said the battle started
at 10 o'clock in the morning and last
ed two hours; that Lopez's band was
short of ammunition and was forced to
retire, leaving the federals in com
mand of the field. Villa's band bad
more than 1,000 horses and mules.
rbJch had been stolen from the
ranches In northern Chihuahua, ac
cording to refugees.
