ARIZONA THIRD GOLD INCREASE I M SS GLOBE, GILA COUNTY, ARIZONA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 1907 GLOBE AGAIN INCORPORATED Board of Supervisors Grant Pe tition of Majority of Taxable Inhabitants of Village, COUNCIL WILL BE SELECTED TODAY Believed Former Councilmen to Be Chosen Robert A, Mei ritt Selected as County As sessor'by Supervisors. If thero is anything in the scriptural teachings of being bor nagain, as tip plied to municipalities, the future of Globe should be full of good things, as it has in a civic way, been bom twice within three months. The town of Globe was bom again yesterday, when the board of supervisors granted the petition of n majority of taxablo in habitants for the disincorporntion of the village, establishd in 1S80, and the in corporation of the town, bounded by the same lines. The last board of supervisor incor porated the town last October and it was immediately raised to a city by action of the council. After an exist ence of a month, Judgo Nitve in the district court dissolved tho incorpora tion in quo warranto proceedings brought by a number of saloonkeepers who seriously objected to paying part of their profits into tho city treasury for the benefit of the municipality. No "Busting" Now When Judue Nave rendered his de cision, he made a number of valuable suggestions to representatives of the jle fuuet city, who immediately began an other campaign with the view of incor Hiratiug the city in such a manner that it would stay incorporated until the end of time, or longer if necessary. A subscription was taken to pay for attor ney roes and other expenses and the work' begun along systematic lines, taking good care that every legal point was well covered. They have sue ceded so well that they now invite "busting" proceedings, but it is not very probable that any disgruntled tax payers will waste hard or easy earned coin of the realm in trying to put the coming city organization out of com mission. Tho petition, containing seven hun dred names, was presented to the board of supervisors 3-estorday afternoon bv Attorneys Hill and Stoneman and Messrs. Sultan, Trojannvich and others who were prominent in the first incorpo ration. Evidence was taken as to the manner in which tho petitions were signed and the bounds of the town lim its established, and the board satisfied itself that everything was presented 111 proper legal form. The petition was ordered granted by a unanimous vote' and the district attorney instructed to prej aro the order. Selecting the Council The matter of appointing a council then came up and a petition was pre sented by Attorney Trench containing a number of signatures of taxpayers asking the board to appoint as coun cilmen seven prominent citizens whose names appeared at the head of thq pc tition. Tho board ovidentfv did not think well of the petition, although there was no question as to the standing and qualifications of those whose names. were suuiuiiicu- Thero was considerable discussion over tho matter and tho board consid ered the advisability of appointing four members of the last council and three from the list presented in tho petition. No definite action was taken, however, and tho board took a recess until this morning. It is very probable that tho super visors will appoint tho seven who com prised tho former council, as it seems to bo the general opinion about town that they aro entitled to the appoiut nicnt. Assessor Appointed Previous to taking up the incorporn tion matter tho board elected Robert A. Merritt of tho firm of Buxton & Mcrritt .is county assessor.

LEFT HERE SUNDAY FOR CAMP IN STORM Believed that Fall from Horse Stunned Him and Death then Came from Freezing In quest This Afternoon, James Boles, 'a well known miner in this section of Arizona, was found dead in tho snow, eleven miles from Globe in the Pinal mountains, Wednesday even ing. The discovery was made by a Mex ican boy, who came to town and notified Sheriff Thompson. Yesterday morning Deputy Sheiiff Jack Knighton and Fred Jones of F. L. Jones & Son, went out to bring in tho remains, returniug with the body last evening. An inquest win bo Held by Judgo Thomas nt 2 o clock this afternoon. Boles came to the city last Saturday from Bobtail camp, thirteen -miles southwest of Globe, for supplies. He was foreman of the camp, which be longs to Dr. O. B. Bachman of Boston, who is now 111 the city. He secured what supplies he required and left early Sun day morning for the camp, accompanied by a boy named Wolf, who is employed at tho Barclay & Iligdon stables. Last Seen of Boles According to Wolf's story he had as sisted Boles with his outfit up to a cabin on the old Sultan wood road in the mountains, where Boles said he would leave some tents which he was packing until tho next day, when ho would re turn from camp for them. A heavy snow was tailing and the road was very rough. Wolf states tliat was the last he saw of Boles. I 'rank Lunii and Jack Rule came in from that section and reported seeing Boles Iving in the snow. From appear inces he tiad been thrown from his lioise and his outfit was scattered over the vicinity. His saddle and blankets were also on the ground, indicating that he or someone else had removed thenu Boles horse came into the Bobtail camp riderless Monday. Body Brought In Deputy Sheriff Knighton, who re turned with the body last evening, states that from indication Boles had not been dragged by his horse, but that lie had probably pitched off, striking a boulder. A cut on his chin shows where he may have struck, and this rendering him unconscious he. was probablv froz.en to death. He also thinks that Boles, be-. tumuli; oun jiuciuii u) mu urivuig snow, had tried to dismount and, the coun try being very rough, had fallen from the horse. The deputy does not believe thero was any foul play connected with the death of Boles. When the body was found there were several dollars in change in the trousors pocket, a good watch and a valuable ring. Had Explosives in Clothes A rather strange feature of the case is the fact that there were two boxes of caps 111 Boles1 coat pockets and an unexplodcd box of giant powder was found on the ground. Had either of these exploded "the body would have been blown to pieces. Mr. Jones and the deputy were compelled to pack the body for a distance of four miles on a horse until they reached the wagon road.

A message was received from his lodge yesterday that tho Knights of Pythias would take charge of tho fu neral, which will probably occur here tomorrow under tho auspices of: the local lodge.

"It may be possible," continued Mr. Kahn, "that tho Japanese consul at San Francisco, Kisaburo Uyeno, advised his government Hint as a precautionary measure it would perhaps be ad visible not to allow the squadron to visit the Pacific coast until the school controver sy has been settled. While- tho people of California are opposed to a whole sale importation of Japaneso coolies, wo respect tho rights of Ihe Japaneso who aro now hero and the training squadrou would bo as safe in tho bav of San Francisco as in a home port."
