A Shooting Affray at Charles
tonTwo Men Seriously
nuillniiM Attempt to ituii tlio Town.
Thursday evening rumblings of mi ex.
tensive row at C'aarleston reached this cily,
ana various versions of the affair tero
canvassed on eery corner. At one lime
the report was limited around that one
man was killed and flvo seriously, if not
mortally, wounded. Another report had
tho number of d:ad fixed at three and tho
wounded at ics It was impossible to get
a correct account c" the affair, though the
fact of a row bfi'ng there was pretty well
established. Tiio telegraph wires were
down and tho r.lcctric current could not bo
used for the transmission cf news. Hopes
were entertalaed that the break in the wire
would bo ll::cd In time to gtt an account
ot the affair for tho readers of ti:o Epitaph,
but about iieven, o'clock that hope was
blasted. But tho readers of tho Epitaph
this morning could not bo disappointed.
Tho peoplo look to us for a full and com
plete history of tho day, and they could
ndfbo disappointed. The telegraph wires
might be down, but there were plenty of
horses still In Tombstone, and an Epitaph
commissioner resolved himself into a pony
express, nnd at half-past seven departed
for Charleston. The city on the San Pedro
was found to bo in an intense state of ex
citement, though evidently cooling down
after a day's contemplaion.
Tho shooting took place thcro sure
enough, but happily was not so sanguinary
as at first supposed. The facts of the case,
so far as gathered, aro as follows : About a
week ago two men, named O'Brien and
Lee, arrived in Charleston. They were re
spectably dressed, had fine, horses, arms
and equipments and seemed flush in coin.
They camped about half a mile
outside tho town, but went in every day to
drink whisky and play curds. Wednesday
another man, whoso name our reporter
was unable to learn, joined the party.
O'Brien and Lee seemed well acquainted
with him and expected his arrival. His
coming was celebrated by a ceneral jam
boree, tho three men getting as drunk as
biled owls, parat'ing tho streets,
hurling profanity on every side and punc
tuating their remarks with pistol shots.
This continued for some time until n man
named Starr managed to get their pistols
away from them. Ho delivered tho pistols
up to Mr. Burnett, and comparative quiet
reigned for half an hour. At tho expira
tion of that time the three men went to
Mr. Burnett and said they were going to
leave town, and requested that their arms
bo delivered to them. They seemed sin
cere in their assertions and tho guns were
given them. This was in tront of Bur
nett's livery stable. When they got their
guns they all mounted their horses and
O'Brien gave a hurroo. Ho announced
lilmselt to bo a son of a blank from Bitter
Creek and resided pretty high; that ho
lived whole seasons, on rattlesnakes and
scorpious; that the first shirt he ever wore
was made of rawhide, and that ho was
born on the top of a freight car when the
train was speeding along nt tho rate of fifty
miles an hour. Ho said that he. could out
drink nnd out-shoot any sucker he ever
met, and that he was a darned son of a
sea cook if ho did not kill somebody right
away and run tho darned town. At the
expiration of tho last sentence ho turned
his pistol loose and shots commenced to
pop pretty lively. Tho newly-arrived
member of the party was heard to say,
" Bob, don't shoot me," and immediately
after pulled his pistol and commenced to
blaze at O'Brien. Then the sport began
in dead earnest. About thirty shots were
fired in as many seconds by tho two men,
Lee remaining a passive spectator. O'Brien
was heard to give a yell and immediately
wheeled his norso around and lied. As
soon as the smoke cleared away the
stranger was found lying in a pool ot blood
and his horse dead by his side. He was
taken un and cared for; ho has a serious
wound in his hip.
Yesterday morning O'Brien was found
In a -stream about a mile from town. He
said he had crawled some distance to
water, and was too weak to get out of the
stream when ho had quenched his thirst.
Ho had threo wounds, one in the back,
the ball passing through and escaping
near the left breast, another flesh wound
in tho arm, and a third in tho left side.
He was taken to town and placed in tho
samo room with tho other wounded
mau, and Dr. Peterson is giving med.
leal attendance to both of them.
Leo is waiting on them. O'Brien's wound
is considered mortal, and It is almost a
miracle if ho recovers. The other man's
wound Is serious, but not necessarily fatal.
They came from Calabasas and all had
magnificlcnt horses. It is the opinion of
peoplo at Charleston that they are a gang
of thieves nnd were makinir preparations
to go on some rascally expedition. No
one in Charleston knows anything about
them or their antecedents.
William Johnson and Charles Noitn
aie half owners of tho Minnto mine on
Contention hill, tocated in the vicinity of
tho Sydney "and Bon-ton. A few weeks
ago they cotnplete4 tho assessment work
for this year, and left the shaft open and
unprotected. The shaft is on a side hill
and was left with the windlass rigged over
it. Tho tools used in doing tho assessment
work wero left in the bottom of the shaft.
Johnson and Norton, had completed ar
rangements to go on a prospecting expedi
tion to the Mulo mountains and went to
the Minute mine yesterday morning to get
out their tools. The windlass, above re
Icrrcd to, was found lcanlnj: down Hie hill
as if something struck it from above and
put it out of shape. A bucket was hitched
on and Johnson descended to load up the
tools, Norton remaining on top to work the
windlass. Before Johnson had descended
ninny feet his nostrils were attacked by
such an unnatural stench that it required
all his strength and nerve to proceed to the
bottom. The shaft is about sixty feet
deep, and the dead and decomposed
body of a man was found at the
bottom. Ho immediately signalized
his partner to hoist up, and repoited the
discovery when ho got on top. The Coro
ner was notified and a jury empaneled.
The flesh was horribly torn from the face
and body of deceased and it was impossi
ble to recognize him. Do was dressed in
a white sliirt and blue overalls, and had
not tho appearance of a miner. Coroner
Mathews took a Jury to the scene and the
following verdict was rcndeicd :
Territory of Arizonn, County of Cochise:
We, the undersigned, a jury empaneled
by tho Coroner of said county, to enquire
whoso tho body submitted to our Inspec
tion, when, whcie and under what ciicum
stances ho camo to his death, after viewing
tho body, and there being no testi
mony as lo his identity, nor as
to his death, find that it Is tho body of an
unknown man, and that his death was
caused by falling down tho shaft of the
Minute mine, Tomostonc Mining District,
Cochise Co., A. T.

It may not bo amiss to remark that it
would bo a good idea if somo provision
was made for securing shafts and prospect
holes. Thero are thousands in this
vicinity left completely exposed, and
passers-by, unless unusually cautious
stand a chance of dropping into them. It
is more than probable that the man found
in tho Minute shaft was a victim to an
accident as the windlass was bending over
as if something struck against it.
Si EtallmiH J(olliel of SlitUO. nixl
Two of Thorn Allerwni'ilt
Reporls fetched town Thursday night of
more deviltry nt Calabasas, or in the vicin.
ay thereof. That hamlet, situated on the
malaiial marshes of Pima county has
uioio blood and thunder to tho square
inch than any town in the United States.
True, it is in an exposed situation, beiug
within a few miles of tho Sonora border,
where criminals can lice when the legal
atmosphere of tho United States becomes
too warm for them. Besides, tho building
of the railroad brought -'gether a pack of
social outcasts from all parts of the world,
to whom abject crimo was an amusement,
and murder a mere pastime. Sunday even
ing last six Italians, who had worked on
tho construction of tho road from the time
it left Benson, and had eagerly hoarded
their earnings, concluded to depart to
pastures new. They had a community of
interest and cairicd a common purse con
taining $1200. They kept their proposed
departure quiet, and left Calabasas with
out any appaient notice being
taken of them about three o'clock In the
evening. They went on foot, intending to
walk to a station on the road about fifteen
miles distant from Calabasas. They had
proceeded about half way when they wero
encountered by seven heavily armed,
masked men, who ordered them to throw
up their hands. The Italians had no arms,
and hastened to obey tho robbers' mandate.
Three of the thieves then kept them cover
ed with guns while the rest went through
them, robbing the poor devils of every cent
they had. They were then ordered to pro
ceed on their journey and the robbers
mounted their horses, that were
hitched in a neighboring thicket,
and rodo off in tho direction of Sonora.
Soon after, tho Italians began discussing
the matter and accusations wero made'
that somo of the party "tipped" their pro
posed departure. A" row ensued, knives
were freely used, and in tho course of a
fow minutes two of the unfortunate men
wero dead, and tho rest fleeing in the
uirection oi sonora.
About five o'clock tho same evening Mr.
Nelson, a brewer, doing business at liar
shaw, and who Is in the habit of carting
beer to Calabasas was met by a party of
men on tho road between Calabasas and
Haishaw and robbed of $250. It is sup
posed tho same men who robbed the Ital
fans nlso "took in" Mr. Nelson. The lat
ter is not certain how many of them thero
were, but their general appearance is in
accord with tho heroes of the first robbery.
They have not been heard from since.
An Interview with the Court House
In response to the assertions made by
a correspondent in our issue of Tuesday
concerning tho employment of Chinese la
bor on the construction of the new Couit
House, an Epitaph reporter sought out
Mr. Ritter, yesterday, to inquiro into the
fads. The contractor denied the allega
tion, and further, asserted that Chinese
would not be employed' He said, however
that he had sub let the contract for brick
work to Mr. Joy ner, and that perhaps, that
gentleman had employed a few Chi
namen iu tho brick yard, it being almost
impossible to find white labor to perform
Tho reporter then went in quest of ihe
sub-contractor, and was informed that
there had been Chinamen employed mak
ing brick. He said he brought flvo China
men from Tucson, but had employed only
four. Tho same Chinamen made brick for
the Court House at Tucson. One of them
Is a' moulder and receives six dollars a day.
The others gel two dollars and a half a
day each. Ho has a'.so three white labor
ers, one of whom receives six dollars per
day and the others are paid three dollars.
Mr. Joyncr asserts that he cannot get whilo
labor to do the same kind of work. The
white men habitually worked a day or two
and quit. He said he did uot save any.
tiling by employing Chinamen, and would
much prcler to employ white labor if it
was possible to get It.
From investigation, made elsevrhere, wo
aro convinced that it is not the intention
of the contractors to put on Chinese labor,
and also that Mr. Joyner would have noth
ing to do with the Celestials, If he could
get competent white labor.
Th Oriole UolA and Silver llltiing
Tho following communicition is from
our correspondent at Yuma:
Tho Excelsior, Orian, Turner and Hilo
Verde mines, situated in Pima county, nnd
belonging to Col. Lyman A. Smith, or Yu
ma county, have been incorporated in Bui
tiinoio under the name of tho Oriole Gold
and Silver Mining Company of Baltimore
City. Tho incorporators are August Wehr,
Gustavus Lehman, Chas. F. Roehle, Henry
Ruhl, Jr., vrancis P. Stevens and John
W. Pitts, of Baltimore, and John F. Tur
ner, ol Washington City. Tho company
proposes to carry on mining operations in
Maryland and Arizona. Capital slock.
Wo are pleased to see these valuable
mines coming to the front. Col. Smith
ccitainly itescrves great credit for his con
tinued development of the Santo Domingo
District, and his steady perseverance to
equal this group of mines to any in the
Territory, and this fact has already been'
proven. We have visited these mines and
they are certainly as tlicv are represented
by your correspondent. Their average
assay is $318.40,and the whole character of
the leads assimulate to the celebrated Gun
sight mine iu Meyers District, tweutv-two
miles apart, and is on tho line of the Gun
sight belt, and still continuing a rich lead
into Sonora. Col. Smith, up to tho time of
incorporation hss been from year to year

dump, which will average $B0. The Orion
has three shafts, No. 1,40 feet; No. 2,25
teet ; No. 0, 15 feet, and one tunnel of 18
feet, and 200 tons of 010 on the dump of
a-, average of $00. The Turner has one
shaft 20 feet, and has 25 tons of ore on the
dump. Tho Hilo Vcrdo has two shafts,
No. 1, 52 leet, and No. 2 12 feet. This,
certainly, speaks volumes for these mines,
and can not fail to soon become anions
the most valuablo mining property in
Arizona, and they could have already been
sold for a largo figure. Wo aro informed
that Col. Smith will shortly recommence
work here, and antic, ipatcs greater pros
pects. Tho incorporation cannot but real
ize a rich and happy investment.
Do not lay me down bv the rippling
brookside, lest babbling lovers wake me
from my dreams, nor in the beautiful
cemetery in the valley, lest sight-seers con
ning over Ihe epitaphs distract me; but let

a peace which passeth all understanding,

WEEKLY MINING REVIEW.
There is nothing of special interest to
be reported In the Tombstone Mining dis
trict to-day. Everything looks bright and
cheerful for our great industry, mid tho
prospects of continued prospeiity aie flat
tering iu the extreme. Tho number of
new prospects that aro beiug actively de
veloped is far in advauce of anything
that lias been seen iu the camp so far.
The great producing miucs are yielding
the usual amount of. ore, nnd the number
of smaller and less developed claims being
worked, give hope that ere many months,
there will be not less than fifty bullion
producers in the camp. The mines of the
Tombstono Mill & Mining Company aro
reported in better condition than at nny
time since the first blast was put
in ; similar reports reach us from the Em
pire, and as is customary with the Ran
dolph for some months past, another rich
body of ore has been discovered in maiden
ground. In the western portion of the dis
trict, where developments have lain dor
mant for some time, activity seems to be
tho order ot the day at present, each claim
owner vieiug with his neighbor in the ac
tive prosecution of developments. Tomb
stone is booming. The wild, fantastic
freaks of childhood and youth aro over,
and the camp has settled down to the en
joyment of calm, prosperous manhoood.
Below we give the reports of actual de
velopments so far as could be gleaned.
TOMllSTONK M. AND M. COMPANY.
No new works have been started in the
mines of this company for the past week.
Tho great ora body discovered in the com
bination shaft of the east and west end is
assuming grand proportions, beth in quali
ty and quantity. The quality of tho ore
is an immense Improvement on anything
that has yet been taken out of the mine,
and the deposit scemsexhaustless. The ore
bin recently removed to the west side
will be flnlshad In a few days.
There is nothing new to report from
this mine this week. There arc no new
developments reported, but the usual
amount of good ore is being hoisted.
Work is not prosecuted steadily on the up
raise trom the 80 level, though several pro
mising veins of ore have been cut. The
winze from the 80 is now down forty
feet. The drifts are going ahead, as usual,
and the ore body looking abcut the same.
THE HEAD CEN7EK.
Active preparations for work are being
made 011 tnis mine. A number of men
are engaged rigging up a whim, at the
shaft about 300 feet north of the hoisting
works. As soon as this is completed a
number of miners will be put to work and
ore extracted as rapidly as possible.
Sloping is continued on the 400 and 450
levels, and the usual amount of ore is
raised to the surface. The quality of the
orobodyis improving dally, being now
nearly double the value of what it was a
month ago. Considerable timbering has
been dono during the past week and the
mine is in better condition than ever. Mr.
R. II. Cavill is Superintendent ot the Em
pire, during the absence oj Mr. Abbott.
TltANtjUIMTV, QIRAKD AND SULTHUnET.
Theso mines arc practically in the con
dition they wero reported last week. The
Girard mill is pouudiug away on second
class Contention ore, the Sulphuret is
yielding water, and the Tranquility is
being put in proper condition to receive a
forco of miners in a tew days. The Head
Centre folks failed to file the $50,000 bond
necessary to appeal the case of the Tran
quillty vs. Head Center to the Supremo
There is nothing of importance to be re
ported from this mine. The drifts are
being driven with rapidity, and the stopes
are yielding the usual amonnt of ore. The
Contention has paid five dividends of 25
cents per share, or $62,500 each, this year,
the last being paid yesterday. Total for
the year, $312,500. The July dividend
will make the six months' earnings $485,
000. GRAND CENTRAL.
The south drift of the 400 level continues
to show big improvements, the percentage
of gold being much greater than formerly.
On tho 500 and COO levels, tho drifts aie
being driven along at a lair pace, and re
main about tho samo in general appear
ance. The crosscut on the COO is in about
225 feet, and showing up nicely. The
stopes all through the mine are looking
well and yielpingthe usual amount of ore.
At 100 feet the limo formation that the
management had been looking for was en
countered. Stoping will be commenced
in the noilh drift this week, tint! some
nice carbonate ores extracted. A new
level will be opened tip at 140 feet from
Ill the south drift, 150 level, a line body
of sand carbonates was discovered during
the past week. This ore body is pronounc
ed by those competent to judge, similar to
the sand carbonates of the Raymond &
Ely of Nevada, which made such a stir in
mining citcles a few years ago. The winze
being sunk twenty-five feet from the shaft
on the same level promises to open up a
fine body of ore at that point. At the bot
tom of tho winze the vein shows up three
feet wide, and assays from $100 to $120.
Mill tests of the ore shows it lobe easily
reduced, and producing bullion beyond
expectation. The norlh drill of the 80 foot
level is being prosecuted vigorously, and
will connect with shaft No. 2 at a point
seventy feet from tho present face of the
drift. They will continue shipping ore to
tho mill next week.
The shaft on this promising mine was
sent seven feet since our last lepoit. The
vein matter is about the same general char
acter but expanding as development pro
gresses. The Devil promises to be one of
our big bullion producers in tho near fu
ture. RUDD cfc THUNDREROLT CONSOLIDATED.
Tho consolidated shaft on these claims
is prosecuted vigorously. Two shifts are
at present employed, and a third is con
templated In a few days. It Is the Inten
tion of tho management to rush develop
ment as rapidly as possible.
Water was struck in tho main shaft 310
feet from the surface last Sunday. A level
has been opened out at this point and
drifts run both ways. Further sinking it
discontinued until steam hoisting and
pumping works are erected.
Another fine body of ore was discovered
in this mine a few days ago in the cross
cut from the first level to shaft No. 2. The
now strike shown up well, both in quality
and quintily, and when fully explored
promises to assume thedignitv of a bonan
za. The oilier works heretofore reported
are being prosecuted with avidity. The
mine Iooks well in all quarters.
Both shifts have again resumed work at
this place, and the usual works are con
tinued. A fino body of ore has opened up
nnd tho usual quantity is being raised to
Work is continued on the main incline.
The ledge is widenlns out nicely, and
everything looking in good shape.
The ledge has widened in the drift, to
probably ten feet and more, with two
mineral veins, each about fifteen inches
wide, and containing some fine looking
rock, in places showing yellow and green
chlorides, while the country rock is
stained in spots by what would seem to be
bromide of silver. The present outlook
is a very favorable one indeed for a mine.
Main tlrift on 400 foot level is now ex
tended westerly from the south drift 45
feet. Getting fine ore from uprise in south
drift. The drift going west, at 300 foot
