Marley and Three Son$ Said to Have
Filched Stock Valued at Over
Sixty Thousand Dollars.
The notorious cattle stealing caie
of over one year ago in Navajo
i.., it. - vt-w,. r.
county, m -which oik
ami the value of the livestock alleged
to have been stolen was snid to have
reached the gigantic sum of $65,000,
was ended at Holbrook on Sunday
morning at 5:30 o'clock when the
Jury brought in a verdict of guilty
against the father, and his three
The men were found guilty under
lait one of the twenty indictments
found. The remaining cases will he
heard after e'ection.
This cae attracted vciy much
attention in live stock circles
throughout the west, and was with
out a parallel in criminal transact
ions of its class. The father and his
sons conducted a wholesale butcher
ing business it was alleged, in sup
plying the Santa Fc Pacific rail
road with beef on the block, and at
such a reduced price, that the avenue
of supply was naturally questioned,
and later developments led to the
discovery of the way and means
tlicy had of filling the various con
tracts. A canyon no'rfH of Winslow
was found where the beeves were
driven to nnd butchered, and the
precaution was taken to burn the
hides that carried" the varlow brands
of the many rangemcn wh'o were
losing their cattle one by one, and
George O. Ford, president of the
Ford Mining Company, and his sec
retary, F. S. Swan, arc in the city
completing arrangements for the in
tailing of a large amount of maclr
incry to begin development on an
extensive basis. The main shaft of
175 feet, will be continued to a depth
of 300 feet, when drifting and cross-
cutting follows. It has also uecn
decided to introduce diamond drills
to explore other portions of the
group and a line of work has been
mapped out that will take the winter
to complete. Mr. Ford is sanguine
over the outlook, and starts off with
two shifts as soon an the machinery
is installed. The Ford mines where
developed enjoy a good name among
miners, while the surface indications
at various points on the group are
attractive also.
Quite an important cattle deal was
closed in the city yesterday, when
R. W, Ainsworth sold to Walter
Cline 200 head mjrc or less of
range animals, including the Dia
mond F ranch and personal property
on Turkey creek, the consideration
being withheld, The purchaser was
formerly located at Camp Wood in
the range business, but dinposcd of
his interests. The proprrty acquired
from Mr. Alnsworth is In the moun
tain ranges of the Bradshaws, and is
regarded as attractive for cattle rais
ing purposes.
Charles Davis, colored, a recent
urrival from Phoenix, was arrested

of cattle, that had been driven from

them, reaches to at least 2,500 head.
The detection of the crjme occupied
several months of diligent and
shrewd effort, but finally the long
link was welded and the verdict re
turned. On Sunday morning met with
very much satisfatclon among all
residents of. the above county. One
