UOOHISE REVIEW : 8ATUBDAY EVENING. MARCH 1). 1901
More Evidence of the Growth of
Bids Will be Opened March 20th for
Building the R. R. Grade from
Naco to Cananea.
Tho first time the writer visited
Nnco was in January of this year. Wo
were there again this week and tho in
creased amount of business over that
transacted two months ago was very
much in evidence. More people are to
be seen on the streets, new business
firms have been established on both
sides of tho line. Surveyors and rail
road men are both coming and going.
Tho traction engines are getting up
steam preparatory to their first run to
Cananea forty-live miles distant big
freighting outfits are loading and un-
loading their cargoes. Custom houso
brokers are hurrying to and fro with
consular invoices, and it might be
stated here that one invoice alone last
month covered merchandise and ma
chinery to the amount of $50,000.
But during tho next sixty days the
activity accompanying the building of
a railroad will be added to the present
busy scene. And before tho expiration
of sixty days, more than two hundred
teams will bo strung along the route
between Naco and Cananea, construct
ing the grade for tho steel rails which
will connect tho richest mine in So
nora with tho A & S. E. at Naco. The
distance is forty-fivo miles and before
the autumn days have come, a traveler
will bo able to oat breakfast in Bisbee
and luncheon at the big copper camp
across the border.
The building of tho railroad is not
the only enterprise contemplated or ex
pected for the early future. The stock
holders of tho Greene Consolidated
Copper company are expected at Naco
again within the next sixty days when
other contemplated enterprises, which
will mean much for the town of Naco,
will be made public.
Across the line the busiest place of
business seems to be the store of the
Cananea Supply company, which is un
der the management of Steve Aguirre,
assisted by Fred Reiley. A general
merchandise business is carried on and
all the staple articles handled in large
quantities. Now fixtures were being
added this week and new goods un
packed preparatory for the increasing
Adjoining tho store building of the
Cananea Supply company, is the oflice
of E. A. McFarland, chief engineer for
the railway department of the Cananea
company. Mr. McFarland's assistant
is Mr. Tyler, a former resident of Bis
bee. This department is entirely sepa
rate from the Copper company. Adver
tisements were sent to El Paso, Los
Angeles, Kansas City and Phoenix this
week asking for bids on the construc
tion work of the railroad.

way of stop No. 21 in the Holbrook.
Conklin was working there wheeling
ore and dumping it into the chute. He
came out with his load, dumped his
wheel barrow, walked around in front
of it and in some unaccountable man
ner, fell down the manway, a distance
of fifty feet. At first it was supposed
he'was reaching for his canteen, which
the men often hang in the manway
to keep cool, but such was not the
case He left no word that he was go
ing on top or to a different part of the
mine and why he was there will al
ways be a mystery. The next man be
hind Conklin came out with his load
and discovered his wheel barijow lying
in tho passage way. This was unusual.
As the second man was taking tho
dead man's wheel barrow out of the
way, word came from below that Conk
Jin's dead body was lying at the bot
tom of the manway. He fell a distance
of fifty feet, striking on his head and
was tilled instantly, sustaining a frac
ture at ttye base of the skull.
A coroner's jury was immediately
empaneled, who viewed the remains,
heard tho testimony and rendered the
