J. Green Davis died suddenly
of apoplexy at Frisco Sunday
morning, March 30. Clement
Hightower, who was the only
person with Mr. Davis at the
time of his death, has written
the particulars of the sad occur
rence to a friend in this city.
From the letter it appears that
Mr. Hightower called on deceas
ed the day of his death and
found him in rather unusually
good spirits but complaining of
a constant pain in his head and
lungs. The two were sitting to
gether chatting when Mr. Davis
suddenly coughed, uttered an ex
clamation, sank down, gasped
two or three times, and all was
over. The remains were given
Christian burial on a little mesa
on Mr. llightower's place near
Mr. Davis catne to New Mexico

was burned out
and he then came to Socorro and
was employed in the office of The
Chif.ftain until 188. In March
of 1899 he went out to Frisco
and in July of that year was ap
pointed ranger of the Gila River
reserve. In this capacity he
served until February 28, 1901.
In November of that year he
was employed to teach the public
school at Lower Plaza near Fris
co. Five weeks of the term of
his contract remained at the time
of his death.
Hut little is known here of
Mr. Davis' life before he came to
New Mexico. At one time he
was an editorial writer on an
Omaha daily. What relatives of
his may now survive him is also
unknown. On his person was
found a business card of W. II.
Davis of Shickley, Nebraska, and
a letter signed "Sarah," which
was written two years ago.
Mr. Davis was well known in
Socorro and commanded here a
goodly share of respect and es
teem. He possessed unusual
ability as an editorial writer.
Word comes from Frisco that as
a teacher he was remarkably
conscientious and successful, be
loved by his pupils and respected
by their parents. While in So
corro Mr. Davis manifested one
besetting weakness but his
friends will be glad to learn that
for a year before his death he ab
stained absolutely from the use
of intoxicants. Peace to his
Sheriff Bliirklnirtoii Arrest Juan Armijo
Suspected of Diabolical Crime.
Sunday, March 30, a diabolical
crime was committed in Albu
querque. Five men at a dance
enticed Placido Salazar into an
outhouse and while four seized
and held him the fifth inflicted
dozens of knife wounds upon him.
The wounded man has since died.
On his death bed he under oath
accused Juan Armijo of the
Some effort was made at Albu
querque to secure the accused,
but it remained for Sheriff Black-
ington of this county to make
the capture. While up the road
on business last week the sheriff
heard what led him to suspect
that Armijo was in Socorro
county. A little inquiring quick
ly developed the suspicion into a
certainty. On his return to So
corro Sheriff Blackington at once
set out to capture his man. He
followed the trail to Magdalena,
then on to Point-of-Kocks, and
finally came upon Armijo at
James Patterson's ranch 125
miles west of this city. Armijo
offered no resistance when told
to throw up his hands. He was
brought to Socorro and lodged in
jail until Thursday morning,
when Sheriff Blackington es
corted him to Albuquerque and
delivered him into the hands of
the Bernalillo county authorities.
The crime committed was a
horrible one and if the man in
custody is proved to be the guilty
party no jienalty that the law
prescribes seems adequate to
meet it.
New Concentrating Plant.
A New York company known
as the General Concentrates Com
pany is preparing to erect a large
mill in the San Andreas moun
tains about 35 miles east of Lava
for the dry treatment of the lead
ores of that vicinity. The com
pany has employed 50 men for
about a month in grading the
road from Lava to the mill site.
About 150 tons of freight, con
sisting of lumber and machinery,
will be hauled over this road at
once. Several carloads of the
machinery have already arrived
and more will be on hand shortly.
The enterprise is one of consider
able magnitude and it is to be
hoped that it will meet with
abundant success.
Sunday's Hull (ame.
The exhibition at the ball
ground last Sunday was about
the tamest of the season. The
Mexican team played altogether
the. better ball throughout the
game. In fact it was not until
the very last inning that the
Americans plucked up something
of their usual spirit and snap and
saved themselves from what
many would have considered dis
graceful defeat. The score was

w Service on the Friura.
The Frisco system has inaug
urated a new train service in con
nection with its service that
seemed already complete. Two
new trains, "'The Meteor" and
"The World's Fair Special,"
have been added, electricity has
been adopted for illumination,
and the Cafe car service has been
extended in the southwest under
the management of Mr. Fred
Harvey. These improvements
will be greatly appreciated by
the traveling public.

Burglary in the Meat Market.
Somebody tapped the tills in

secured consisted of a few cur

Bologna sausage. The partly
devoured sausages were found

Tony Vincent was also found on
the street full of sausage, possi
bly, and whiskey. For the
whiskey he had made barter of
certain shekels of silver which
the proprietors of the meat
markets averred were the identi
cal pieces extracted from their
strong boxes the night before.
The Tony aforesaid was taken
into custody by Councilman
Winkler and given free escort to
the city bastile where it is to be
hoped he has improved the shin
