The father of this young man was old Bob Winders, "well known to old residents of Tombstone and a familiar figure in Weatherford, Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas, In tne '70's. After the above formal proceedings the case of Andrew GriQin, charged with murder in the killing of John Powell in the Huachucas, was called. Allen K. English was entered as counsel for the prosecution. Mr. Eng lish tried to get the case continued till Monday. After a tedious examination of jurors the following jury was sworn to try the case: John Jolly, V. E. Bai ley, Henry Ash, G. F. Hagler, I. S Burnett, Dan Hoesb, H. E. Gardner, C. Heller, John Kelso, C. H. Holtz, R. A. Casada and William Allison. The remaining trial jnr.rs were ex cused till 930 a. m. Monday. The first witness called was Peter Connor, who was the only eye witness to the affray between Andrew Griffin and John Powell, resulting in the shooting- and killing of PowelL Con nor testified that be bad been living in and about the Huachucas for twenty two years; that at the Mme the affray occurred, October 2d, he was camping ing with Griffin for a day or two; that he knew John Powell; that Powell had stopped over the preceding night at Griffin's camp; that in the morning, after Powell bad caught up his horse and saddled blm preparatory to leav ing, he and Griffin became engaged in au altercation over some money mat ters; at the commencement of the al tercation the two men were some twenty-five or thirty feet away from Grif fin's tent; that In the course of the quarrel Powell bad called Griffin a "son of a b "-and placed his hand on his pistol, which was carried in a scabbard attached to a belt around his waist; that at this Griffin turned aro?hd and walked toward his tent, saying "I'll allow no one to call me that name." Powell followed him, still keeping his hand on his gun. I (Con nor) stepped toward him and asked him to stop, and when Griffin had gone into his teat Powell stopped when within about six feet of the tent door, rill, however, keeping hi band on bis gun. Almost immediately Griffin ap peared ia the door of hie tent with a rifle 1b his hand and shot Immediately, hitting-..Powell ia the face. Powell sank down dead, never having spoken after he waa shot. THe shooting oc curred about eight o'clock in the raora-lag-, I ordered GriMn under arrest and took charge of his rifle and also of the pistol of the decaaed; thv latter I took from bUbody. Connor then testified to the movements of Griffin and him self immediately after the shooting, saying they went to Todd's ranch, but not together, and that he was unarmed when he went there; that at that time both Griffin and himself were sober al though they had been drinking freely tho day previous: positive we were so ber, because we had drank all the whisky in camp the night before and had no chance to get any in the morn ing. Dr. John E. Bacon, county physician, in bis official and professional capacity, bad made an examination and partial autopsy of the body of John Powell four or five days after his death. Death resulted from a gunshot wound, the ball having entered just below the right nostril and coming out the back of the bead about four inches behind the right ear. No evidence of other ex ternal Injury apparent. At the conclusion of the evidence of Dr. Bacon Sidney Johnson, tho boy convicted on Friday of robbery In con nection with the hold-up at the Big Adobe saloon in Naco, was brought into court, and af ti r a plea for clemency bad been made to the court by his counsel, O. Gibson, the court sentenced Johnson to imprisonment for five years in thg territorial prif on at Yuma, be ing the minimum puLishment. Cole Powell, brother of deceased, was examined. "John Powell was my brother. He was 26 or 27 years old at the time of bis death; born in Texas in '7-1; bad been in Arizona about three ears; had been keeping saloon at Ex posed Reef mine f6r about a month when he was killed; had been a "cow puncher;" was as quick at getting a gun as anybody." This was generally known among cowboys. Clay Astoa was put on the stand, but upon objection by attorney, his testi mony was rule! out. Mrs. Elizabeth Todd testified that her home was on a ranch, situated three or four hundred yards from Grif fin's camp; that she was at home on the morning of October 2d; knew both Griffin and Conner; they came to my house together on the morning of Oc tober 2d; Griffin wis unarmed, Conner had a pistol In one hand and a rifle in the other. They appeared to have been drinking, but Connor the most talkative; Griffin said he had killed a man in self defense; if he had not killed him he would have been killed himself. This was about nine o'clock in the morning; Griffin said he was sorry, but he was not going to stand there and be shot. Connor remarked, 'I can prove jou.dld it in self defense."' J. E. Tomllnson, carpenter, now em ployed in Bisbee, was at Todd's ranch on Octobar 2d. fie was examined at length; beyond corroborating the tes timony of Mrs. Todd as to Griffin and Conner coming there together and Conner carrying a rifle and pistol, his testimony contained no special featnre. Adjournment was ordered till 9 JO a. m. Monday, the jurors being remanded to the custody of two bailiffs. At 9:35 court was re-opened to re ceive a partial report from the grand iury. The grand jury had just filed in when Bailiff Johnson appeared at the door and announced that the residence of Clerk Emanoel was on fire. The clerk was hastily excused ni upon a second announcement tbat the house was burning down rapidly tho court was more hastily adjourned, the Court remarking as he quitted the bench, my valise and clothing are down there."

GRAND JURY REPORT. A Caastlc DocBment Returned After a Long Session. Tombstone, Ariz., Deo. 10 The grand jury made its final report today, after having been in session two weeks. The report scores tho jail management at Tombstone and Bisbee. The hos pital management was commended. The report also says that illegal and erroneous claims have been allowed by the county. Starr Williams is cen sured for gambling and misappropriat ing county funds, but no Indictment was found. The Griffin jury is out. When asked to give his side of the case by a Review reporter last night, S. K. Williams said, "Cochise county owes me in the neighborhood of $1,500 for six months services, and on the other band I owe the county about KO. Mr. Williams further said that he has receipts In his possession to show that he has paid over all cash received by him up to and including the first of November 1901, the last payment being $30395, and that he challenged the grand jury of Cochise county or any individual in it to sustain any such charge, and that he would give $100 to any citizen or taxpayer who can sub stantiate any such charge. I feel that I have not been treated right by the grand jury, and if I were guilty of this charge why didn't they Indict me In stead of making ridiculous remarks, such as would emii.ate only from the minds of children. When I was in Tombstone I was shown a letter by the foreman of the grand jury, a letter written by M. J. Brown, of Bisbee, which had his signatureattached, stat ing tbat I had received cash fines from parties in Bisbee fined in my court, who had never paid a fine. There were also charges made against me by one C. T. Clark, a would-be attorney who was committed for contempt in my court." Congratulations for Admiral Schley. Washington, December 16.

After a several days wait In hiding In or near Bisbee, a part of the gang who robbed A. W. Crawford of two va lises of diamond and jewelry, cam back Sunday morning between one and two o'clock and entered the house they had been using since they first came to Bisbee and asked the landlady who bad been in their room and disturbed their efiects. The landlady called to a young man rooming next door and the burg lars made a hasty exit from the prem ises. Officers were notified and again searched the room, and between two mattresses they found a number of giant cap3 and fuse, several skeleton keys and a dig. They had evidently been making preparations and intend ed to help their confederates escape from the jail here and then quit the country. From information in their possess ion the officers are satisfied that the men who did this job are part of a gang of noted crooks on their way west and stopped off to take in a few of the min ing camps as they passed through. On one of the men was found a book giv ing the names and locations of the dif ferent postofflces in the United States, and these men are very likely wanted by the government secret service, offi cers, and that good size rewaads are out for their capture.
