Badly Hurt at Safford.
At Safford, Arizona, last Tuesday
morning, J. Owens met with a very
serious accident th.it will keep him

Mr. Owens and A. E. Jacobson were
inspecting the corn grinder in the
Union Milling and Trading company's
grist mill. Mr. Owens reached over to
get a handful of corn from the hopper
when his coa; was caught in the upper
pair of cogs. In endeavoring to pull
away, his right leg was caught by the
lower cogs and the skin and outer mus

around the leg. Almost at the same
moment bis right arm was caught by
the upper cogs and received about the
same treatment from the elbow to the

to the hip. In some way during the
struggle his forehead , was also quite

IIIIIOl I Ul llVTvlltJv.
Ed Scarborough, the daring Arizona
ranger, came in last night from Dem-
ing, New Mexico. Mr. Scarborough is
the son of George Scarborough, the
famous New Mex'co officer who figured
in the big fight on Black
river, about
two years ago with Bill Smith's gang
of outlaws and was later shot from am -
bush by one of this band. ""
"If necessary," said Mr. Scarborough
! "I will devote tho rest of my life to the
capture of the Smith outlaws, one of
whom is the slayer of my father." Re
cently Mr. Scarborough traced some
members of the Bill Smith gang to
Almagordo, but there Jost track of
them. He is a determined fellow and
much like his father. When he joined
the Arizona rangers this fall he was
considered one of Captain Mossman's
best acquisitions. Scarborough was
brought up in the saddle and is an ex
cellent marksman. He -don't krow
what fear is and when he succeeds In
coming upon the Smith outlaws, a live

J ports work progressing nicely at the

about 2 feet below the first one on
I the ledge and will be run in to deter-
( mine the extent of the ledge and rich-
ness of the ore. The company is tat
lag out a good grade of ore and storing
t preparatory to making a shipment
early in January.
Sam Miller, superintendent of the
Gold Quaitz and Copper Rock, has a
force of men at work running a tunnel
on their property behind the Catholic
church. We are in about 258 feet, said
Mr. Miller, and we expect to go about
45 or 50 more before we strike the
ledge we are after and show up a good
mine. The company expects to do con
siderable work next year, and will
spend about $20,000 in putting up ma
chinery for hoist and tramway, and
they are in earnest in the matter. The
company is com)Ksed of several weal
thy men in Pittsburg, Pen-isylvania,
and they expect to realizo something
outjof the mine.
Negotiations are pending for the
transfer and sale cf several groups of
mining claims near Bisbee, which will
mean much to the mining interests In
this section. The REVIEW will publish
full particulars of the deals shortly.
There has been some talk by several
prominent mining men in Bisbee of

Miner's Hazardous Work
Surely the Laborer Underground
is Worthy of His Hire
An accident, such as has occurred in
the Stcuggler-TJniou mine at Telluride
brings to Attention, with the vividness
of a Hash of lightning, the dangers of
the miner's avocation. The miner sells
moro than his labor, more than the
physical strength which he must have
to be a miner, more than the skill
without which he cannot hope to com
mand full miner's vages. He burrows
far into the rock. He uses powerful
machinery and dangeroua explosives,
the surroundings of his calling are try
ing, and the exertions which it demands
are arduous, and death walks by his
side from the moment he enters tunnel
or shaft until he emerges again to the
A property equipped with life-pro
tecting appliances and ventilating ap
paratus, the best that human skill can
devise, may be made the tomb of its
miners by some sudden catastrophe;
and this applies to precious metal and
coal miners alike.
A great accident shocks the public
mind, but the annual roll of the dead
or maimed Is s-vollen by the almost
daily lesser accidents which occupy
only half a dozen or a dozen lines in
the newspapers and are passed over
with a casual glance. "

Bisbee Line
Pushes Westward
Strung over McGinty bill, and away
to the westward, a hundred and fifty
teams, with tho necessary complement
of men, offer tangible evidence of ac
tual work on the right of way of the
Bisbee road out of El Paso. Eighty of
these teams wore put to work-yesterday,
and the whole outfit will be u&ed
on the grade from here on in the di
rection of Deming.
"The grading of the yards here has
been practically complted," said super
intendent Choate yesterday, "and
whatever remains to be done will be
finished by the 1st of February. By
that time we expect to have the line
graded as far east as Deming. Just
now fifty miles remain for completion
between that city and Bisbee.
"It is Impossible to predict just at
what time trains will be running into
El Paso, or even when we will begin to
pnt the local yards in shape. Every
thing is going forward smoothly and
we seem to have overcome all prelimi
nary difficulties." El Paso Times.

Work Progressing Rapidly from
both Ends
The line of railroad now being built
by the El Paso fc Southwestern road is
progressing rapidly from both ends of
of the line. A distance of forty-seven
miles has be:n attained out of Douglas
and u bout the same distance has been
attained from Deming.
Since a sntlement has been reached
regarding the crossing of the South
ern Pacific tracks at Deminz and the
payment of the munificent sum of $25
for damages, tl.e El Paso & Southwest
ern has tied on to the Santa Fe and
material for that end of the line is be
ing received without delay.
The distance from Douglas to Dem
ing is 153 miles, and by March 1st at
the latest the last spike will have been
driven and the connecting link com
pleted. With this connection the merchants
of BUbee may expect a cheaper freight
rate from the east, and the people of
Douglas an increase of business.
The new passenger depot at Douglas
Is nearlng completion. Architect Per
kins went down on the train yesterday
to take a last look at the building.
The railroad offices will not be
moved from Bisbee to Douglas until an
eastern connection is made with Dem
ing. Not Very Encouraging
William Garland, president of the.
G. V. G. & N. Ry., was interviewed by
a Belt reporter at Globe last week.
That part of the interview touching
the probability of Mr. Garland build
ing a branch from Solomonville to
Clifton Is given below:
As to the proposition of a branch
from Solomonville to the Clifton and
Morenci district on his reconnolssauce
trip last October, he found a practica
ble route, with some heavy work nec
essary, but he found conditions at Clif
ton and Morenci not very favorable, as
theie is no possibility of securing any
of the buMnessof either of the Arizona
or Detroit copper companies, as they
have their own roads and traffic agree
ments, and the only other company
likely to furnish uuy considerable
amount of business for a railroad in
the near future is the shannon Copper
company,uow building extensive works
below Clifton. He met W. B. Thomp
son, one of the heaviest owners in the
Shannon, who informed him that his
companj had the promise of favorable
rates after January 1 from the Arizona
& New Mexico railroad. If the latter
submitted a satisfactory proposition
his companv would undoubtedly enter
into an agreement with them; if not,
then his company would be ready to
treat with some one else for the con
struction of a railroad to their works.
