warm Underclothing, Socks and Shoes, as well as j

A Young Woman
Murdered in Pittsburg
Pittsburg, Dec. 17. This city is much excited over a
horrible murder which occurred here last night. Miss
Harriet Murphy, socially prominent and well known in

ed her room. There was a struggle. Miss Murphy, who
sleeps with a revolver under her pillow, possibly wounded

without murdering his victim. Owing to the prominence
of the family the entire police force has-been at work try
ing to ferret out the mystery, but as yet there is no clue.

Court as to the probability of the civil
case of Marks vs. Castello, being heard
on date set as per docket,Friday of this

Will Build at Douglas.
The party of officials of the Calumet
and Arizona Mining company left
Bisbee yesterday in their private oar
attached to the regular train for El
Paso and eastern points. Before leav
ing Bisbee a Review rep:rter had a
short talk with several of the party
and was assured that the company
would build their reduction works and
smelter at Douglas.
"Yes, we have a nice location at
Ddtiglasanda well that baa plenty of
water for our own use," said Mr. Ten
ner, spokesman of the party, "and wo
hope to have machinery on the way
before very long.
"Contracts will be let in a day or
two and all work will be rushed with
all possible haste. We have nothing
but good reports to take back with us
and our directors will be well satisfied
with all the work that has been done
so far, and a larger party of the stock
holders will probably come back with
us early next year. I predict for Doug
las and Bisbee a bright future, and If
you move the county seat over here it
will also add a great deal to Bisbee. I
hope to see Bisbee double Its present
population within the next twelve
months, but you will have to extend
your city limits down In'the direction
ofNaco." "
When asked the capacity of the plant,
Mr. Tenner said they would not build
a large plant to start with, bat would
put oie furnace of 250 tons capacity
and two converters and they could' eas
ily add to this as they saw fit.
When asked about the report that
Calumet company intended building
their smelter at El Pate, Mr Teaser
said that it would add too much to the
cost of making copper to haul their
ores to El Paso.

Complete Report
of the Grand Jury
To the Hon. Geo. R. Davis,
Sir: We, the grand jury, for the
December, (1901,) term, respectfully
submit this, our final, report:
We have considered 42 charges, have
found 25 true bills; have tgnored 14
charges; and refused 3 charges.
Our committee on county hospital
and jail have reported and their report
will be found annexed:
hospital report.
We, the committee appointed to ex
amine the county hospital, submit as
That we found the county hospital In
excellent condition and that'all tho in
mates of the hospital speak in high
terms of their treatment, both in med
ical attendance and care.
county jah. report.
We, the committee appointed to ex
amine the county jail, submit as fol
lows: That the said jail was found to be in
a filthy and unsanitary condition and
beds and bedding in a like condition.
A little systematic labor and a trifling
expense wll1 correct both troubles.
In the matter of the investigation of
county officers and records, the grand
jury find that the customary farcical
examination has already been made for
this year and they respectfully submit
that in their opinion a careful and
complete examination of the books,
records and accounts of all the offices
of the county cannot be properly car
ried out through committees from their
own body. This is attested by reports
of former grand juries. The present
financial condition of Cochise county
and the manner in which this grand
jury now find it, illegal and erroneous
claims against this county successfully
running the gauntlet to the vaults of
the treasury. The trouble is due main
ly to an Imperfect system of recording
accounts, though diligence and care
would, undoubtedly, overcome a great
deal of It. No private business could
stat.d the strain placed upon public
business from the causes mentioned,
and it is high time that the same prin
ciples governed the successful conduct
of each. Believing it to be in the best
interest of the county that an expert
accountant be employed, as authorized
by law, to thoroughly examine into the
records of this year pertaining to the
revenue, as well as to the character
and amount of all claims and the reas
on and manner of their allowance.
This grand jury recommends that
the next grand jury, at the first day's
session, employ a competent account
ant to make such examination and that
said examination covers at least the
year 1901.
Your attention is respectfully called
to the following claims improperly
allowed, namely:
L Fe;a of the sheriff during the
third quarter of 1901, in the case of the
territory vs. Baker and Nicholson, the
same having already been allowed in

in the case of the territory vs. J. F.
Woods, wherein mileage Is charged
twice. These items were discovered
Incidentally in the examination of an
other matter and it Is safe to presume
that there are many more similar
charges. An examination of the re
port of the previous grand jury disclo
ses the fact that their recommenda
tions have been completely ignored as
to the matters referred to and com
plained of, as they still exist in an ag
gravated form. This is not encourag
ing to further effort in similar direc
tions by this body. Nevertheless it is
Imperative that attention be again
called to pressing evils.
The sworn testimony of many wit
nesses and the personal knowledge of
several grand jurors make it certain
that the sub-jail at Bisbee is a hell c'
horror and a disgrace to this county.
The keeper of said jail is either Incom
petent or grossly negligent in his du
ties, although it is also apparent that
the jail accommodations at said plaoe
are insufficient and the jury earnestly
recommend that immediate Bteps be
taken for providing suitable j all room.
Numerous criminal cases of a petty
nature are sent from Bisbee to the
grand jury, thereby entailing great
expense to the county, and often un
necessary punishment to the offender.
Petit larceny is often magnified into
robbery, or battery becomes an at
tempt to murder. The arbitrary pow
er often exercised by our justices of
the peace might be turned in this di
rection, and whenever a doubt exists
the county and the offender should
reap the benefit and not the injury, no
matter what may result in the matter
of fees in sight. A cursorv inspection

and stagn fares in the conveyance of

most invariably charged at 5 and

Prisoners taken to the county hospital
should either be guarded or so closely
confined as to render escape practical
ly impossible. A guard should be
used at least through convalesence of
the prisoner so confined.
A sui able grand jury room should
be furnished.
All county records and books should

Testimony before this body in rela
tion to the conduct of the precinct of
ficers and their business at Bisbee,
discloses a deplorable state of affairs.
Charges and counter charges came
thick and fast, and occupied much val
uable time. Many such complaints
were ignored, not that they might not
be well founded, but because of the
anxiety of parties on both sides to
swear flatly contradictory facts, thus
involving the truth in doubt and ob
scurity. However, it must be submitted in the
interest of good government: The jury
finds that S. K. Williams justioe of the
peace at Bisbee, from his own testimo
ny, as well as that of sworn witnesses,
has been guilty of gambling at rou
lette during his official term; said
Williams furthermore has failed to
turn over monthly to the county treas
urer fines collected by himself as jus
tice of the-peace and has, from his own
admission, appropriated all or a part
of said fines to his own use.

A Wonderful Invention
An invention in which several B.s
bee parties are interested promises to
be one of the cheapest machines for
power that has ever been brought be
fore the attention of the patent office
at Washington, and a patent was
granted in a very short time after the
machine hsdjbeen fully tried and tested
and proved its claims.
Mr. Sam Miller, who is well known
in Bisbee as a mining man, is inter
ested in the new invention with his
brother, A. D. Miller and Jack McCor
mick of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
"We have a machine that uses air
for fuel," said Mr. Miller yesterday to
a Review reporter, "and you can see
for yourself the principle on which we
work. This is a copy of the drawing
as given by the United States patent
office, and it shows, the workings of our
machine. We use the air for fuel, and
by a series of chambers use it over and
over again continuously. With every
nine cubic feet of carbonic gas we use
one foot of air, and at a certain point
when the air is used we let in a supplv
of fresh air and this gives our machine
another start, and in this manner we
have our machine going continually.
When the machine was first shown to
the authorities in Washington they
thought we were applying for a per
petual motion machine, but we were
not. We have a machine that uses a
certain per cent of air and gas for fuel,
and it is an improvement on the pres
ent gasoline engine, with a large sav
ing for" the owner In gasoline, oil or
dtstiiate. We are at present erecting
a factory back in Pennsylvania for the
manufacture of our machines and ex
pect to put them on the market early
next year. The cost will he very small
and we are assured of a large sale of
our machines all over the east, and I
am satlsned we can dispose oi a large
number in the west also."

"Underwood" typewriter. It received

tion and first grand prize at Venice.
