Thrilling Experience of Two Men
in Sycamore Canyon,
Mike Kennedy Killed by a Hear Win.
Smith Kscnpes by Ilolllng Down
a Canyon, untl After Nino
Days ItenclicH a Ha'ncli,
On Sunday. August 4th, Mike Ken
nedy of Gallup and Williaih Smith of
San Francisco left Williams on foot to
make their way across the canjoiis and
mountains to Jerome. They were in
search of work, and expected to find
employment iu Jeromo. The first day
out thsy eat diuuer at Wagner's ranch
and camped that night at an old cabin
twenty miles from Williams. They
started on their journey early on tho
morning of the 5th, and some time
early iu tho afternoon, as they were
walking along the ridge near the edge
of a canyon, having lost the trail, a
bear pushed throujjh the bushes near
them. Smith saw bruin first, aud with
a yell ho started to ruu away, and in
his excitement ran over tho edge of the
canyon, turning head over heels, and
bringing up at tho bottom, two hun
dred feet below, on his back. From
where ho lay Smith could hear tho
groans of Kennedy and tho angry
growling of the bear. Tho struggle
was a short one, aud Smith lied for his
life. He does not know how long ho
ran nor in what direction, and only
stopped from utter exhaustion, aud
fell senseless.
Smith docs not kuow how long lie
lay where ho fell, but it was daylight
when ho recovered, and after wander
ing some time ho found a stream of
watci. Here ho lay down iu tho water
and covered himself with mud, for ho
was aching in every portion of his
body. After remaining in tho mud
several hours ho began his wander
ings, aud on Monday he reached a
ranch on tho Verde, having followed
down Sycamore Canyon. He presented
a pitiful appearance at the ranch. His
clothing was torn from his body and
hung iu shreds, his hands were filled
with cactus points, and he was covered
with mud, which had dried on his
During his wanderings down the
cauyon lie was forced to eat cactus aud
green walnuts. At the ranch ho told
his story, but it was not believed, and
Smith wearily tramped on to Jerome,
whero he told the story of his partner's
death, but the story was doubted. He
induced a barkeeper, however, to wrilo
to Cap. Smith asking him to write to
Kennedy's wife. Cap. Smith notified
Kennedy's brotlior at Gallup.
A traveling salesman, who knew
Kennedy, was in Jeromo Saturday and
heard Smith's story, and he brought
him over to Williams, as Smith said
that owing to his wanderings ho could
not find the spot where Kennedy was
killed from Jerome, but could from
On Monday a party headed by Sheriff
Cameron left Williams to find the spot
where Smith said tho encounter took
place. Tho party was composed of
Messrs. Buggeln, Clements, Briggs,
Con Kennedy, Michaels, Osborn, Wor
rell, Smith and Couard Kennedy.
Smith led the party lo the camping
place made by them tho night beforo
the encounter with the bear, and from
thero to tho top of tho ridge, but here
ho became confused. Tho party sep
arated and began searching. In a
short time Kennedy's coat was found,
and near by his body. The body was
badly decomposed, as it was two weeks
since tho fatal encounter occurred.
An examination of the body showed
that the left arm had been broken
below the elbow and that the throat
was fearfully lacerated, and the cloth
ing was covered with blood. Tho
clothing was badly torn.
It is supposed that the bear, a she
one, had cubs near by, and that the
sudden appearanco of tho men startled
her and sho attacked Kennedy, with
fatal results. It is a rare thing for the
brown bear to attack a man, and it is
uly when her cubs are in danger that
she will do s:, and iMs is tho first in
stanc where a man has l"jn known
to have been killed by a bear iu Ari
zona. The body was buried whero it was
found, as it was impossible to move it
it to Williams,
The scene of tho encounter was
about thirty miles south of Williams,
iu a place locally known as the Brakes.
Mike Kennedy was a resident of
Gallup, whero his brother, C. R. Ken
nedy, and cousin, Con Kennedy, live.
Ho was nbout 40 years old, was indus
trious anil well liked. Ho leaves a
wife airtl 0110 child to mourn his un
timely end.
William Smith is not known here,
but several years ago ho worked for the
Harvey house at Needles, but says ho
has been out of work for two years
past. Ho is now at the county hos
pital here, and has not fully recovered
from tho effect of his terrible eight
days' experience.

League who aro iu tho city nono have

more confidence placed in Ids political
judgment by tho committee than Geo.
Christ of Nogales, Ariz. Mr. Christ
was for some years a member of the
National Republican Committee, and
will reorganize the league clubs of the

Arizona will ask the next Congress lo
