In the course of the interview ho said that he had seen many drives of the kind suggested in cities visited in his travels, and thought that if the matter was brought to the attention of our citizens in a proper manner that the suggestion would meet with favor. Mr. Murphy further explained that Mount Vernon street was better suited for a park of this kind than any street in the residence portion of Prescott on account of its uniform grade and the good background afforded the park by i i : r..i nn I . .

The blocks along Mount Vernon street are about COO feet in length, and the general design contem plates a park in each block about 500 feet in length and 30 feet in width, bordered with shade trees and shrubs, and sown in grass, with narrow gravel or cement walks along the sides.

He visited the Tonto dam, and thinks that it is one of the grandest undertakings in the world.

(Tom Friday's Daily) Word reached here yesterday from Goldfield, Nevada, of the death at that place of Virgil Earp on October 19, of pneumonia, and the shipment of his remains from there to Portland,Oregon, for burial. He was born in the state of Indiana, and was 63 years of age at the time of his death. He was one of the best known men on the Pacific coast, as well as one of the bravest. His decease recalls to mind many ex citing incidents of the early history of this section and southern Arizona, where he lived for a number of years, and as sisted in ridding the country of many a border desperado. In company with his two brothers, Wyatt and Morgan, and Doc. Holliday, he came to Prescott about the year 1877. Shortly after his arrival here, and while Ed Bowers was sheriff of Yavapai county, the town was visited by two cowboys from the Bradshaw basin section, who enlivened matters by shooting up saloons and other re sorts, finally riding out of the place, shooting right and left as they went in the direction of the Brooks ranch, just outside of the city limits. Arriving at the Brooks ranch, the cowboys sent word to the officers that they were camped there, and if any of the officers wanted them to come out and get them. These men were consid ered bad ones, and were known to bo dead shots. Sheriff Bowers organized aposse of citizens, of which Virgil Earp happened to be one, and the posse started for the Brooks ranch on horse back preceded by Deputy United States Marshal Stanford and another deputy in a hack. The party in the hack passed the bad men unmolested, but the cowboys opened fire on the sheriff's posse, which was on horse back. Sheriff Bowers' horse was shot in several places, but he returned the fire, and did not get hit. On arriving at the scene Virgil Earp, who was armed with a Henry rifle, proceeded up thc creek in thc di rection of the shooting, and noticing one of the cowbovs crouching binder oak tree reloading his gun, shot and killed him instantly The first shot it him in the heart, and the second shot struck about two inches from the first. The other cowboy was shot with a charge of buckshot and lived for two days, finally dying in the hos pital. A peculiar feature connected with the shooting was that the man struck by the shot fired by Earp was found lying against the tree with a cigarette in his mouth, which was held there un til after the body was removed to town. After this incident Earp came into prominence as a determined man and good shot. In 1S79 Virgil Earp and Doc Hoi liday left Prescott for Tombstone, which was the scene of the greatest mining excitement of the time. On arriving at Tombstone, Virgil Earp, his two brothers and Doc. Holliday- were appointed Deputy United States Mar shals, and rendered very effective ser vice against thc rustlers and border ruffians that infested that section, co operating for a time with the city and county peace officers. Later in 1SS2, the lawless clement were not quite subdued, and so notor ious did they become that President Arthur of the United States issued a proclamation calling upon the bandits to disperse and threatening them with extermination at the hands of the military authorities and the United States marshals if they did not dis. band. Up to the time of issuing this proclamation stage coaches were be ing held up with almost the regularity of clockwork whenever any treasure was in transit, merchants in outlying districts were being held up and their goods taken, and the people generally made to pay tribute to the bandits. While the .harps and Holliday were endeavoring to enforce the law they were naturally picked out for the ven geance of the outlaw gangs, and sev eral fights and skirmishes took place, in which many lives were lost; notably one fight on the streets of Tombstone between the Clantons and McLowers on one side and thc Earps and Doc Holliday representing the strong arm of the law, in which the two McLowerys and Billy Clanton were killed and Vir gil Earp shot in the left arm, thc use of which he never fully recovered. After the termination of the trou bles with the outlaw gangs, and when thc country was pretty well rid of the lawless element, the Earps and Doc Holliday resigned their positions with thc U. S. marshal's office, and shortly after Morgan Earp, one of Virgil's brothers, was shot through a window and killed while playing a game of billiards in a saloon in Tombstone, the supposition of the remaining Earps and Holliday being that a man named Still well did the killing. In this connec tion it was known that Stillwell had it "in" for thc Earps and Holliday for ladies objected to the locking of the door, in which Marie Power got bump ed on thc forehead so hard that a swell ing as large as a hen 's egg was tho re sult.
