DOOM OF THE CONJsPlrtATORS, i. r -: ,.
RAILROAD BONDS FUNDED.
Coconino County Will lie Culled on
to lny ElKlity-Sevrii Thousand
Tim funding of the Ynvnpal eminty
'v rallioud bonds by thu loan commission
of the Territory, affects llils coiiuiy to
thu tuno of one-third of tlio HPinmit
-funded. Cocomuo county heretofore
Instituted suit against Yavapai corfyty
nd the same is now pending to cancel
the Indebtedness against this county
oo account of said railroad bonds for
the want of consideration.
Alleging that said bonds were ille
gally issued, and that Yavapai, the
mother county wouldn't have to pay
them. That it would be wrong for
this county to pay her prorata of an
illegal debt, or one without consid
eration. This county through her ooard of
supervisors ordered her district attor
ney to bring suit against Yavapai
county to rid the taxpayers of Coce
niuo county of this unjust and illegal
debt, and the present board will be
jlow to make a levy to. pay nearly
-eighty-seven thousaud dollars (our
part of these funded bonds) unless the
the courts the proper tribunal to pass
upon this question declare that said
bonds are valid.
The loan commission acted with in
decent haste in funding these bond,
and by Its action in so doing ty el).
.jected tho members 9 the severest
-criticism. It was nn attempt to rob
tho courts of their jurisdiction. After
the courts have, passed upon the valid
ity of these bonds, then there, will bit
Umplo time for tho commission to lmve
It wold havo shown more respect for
the courts, ami tho. interested I ax pay
ers to have waited fur n careful judi
cial investigation of the validity of
tlii'sn bonds before attempting to sad
dle this largo deht on tho over-bin-lie

have savored more of fairness nnd

Scenra at the Trial or th Atiaiilai of
The courtroom in which wcro tried
o May, 1605, tho eight conspirators ar
raigned for being concerned in tho plot
against tho lives of tho heads of tho
government was a place of fascinating
and perhaps morbid interest, writes
Noah Brooks m Century, but it was
finally opened to thoso who could pro
cure passes from tho president of the
court. Tho room in which tho trial was
held Is a part of tho great United States
arsenal establishment, attached to
which is tho penitentiary in which the
conspirators were confined. It is on.
tho banks of tho Potomac, in tho sub
urbs of tho city. Entering an old
fashioned brick building, ono, was
shown Into a large, bare room on tho
ground floor, whero sat a couple of
staff officers receiving tho credentials
of thoso who applied for admission.
They bent theso up to tho courL where
an ofileer Inspected them, and returned
them, if satisfactory, with the desired
card of admission.
A narrow flight of stairs brought the
visitor to a small chamber in tho second
story, where a lot of orderlies were
lounging about, and an officer inspect
ed one's pass. After another flight of
stairs, another inspection of tho pass
permitted ono to enter tho courtroom,
which was in the third story. It was
an apartment about twenty-flvo feet
wldo and thirty feet long, tho entrance
being at tho end opposite tho peniten
tiary. Looking up tho room ono saw
that it was divided lengthwise into two"
parts, the portion oa tho right being,
occupied by tho court, sitting around, a J
long, green-covered table, Gen. Hunter-!
ato15 end and Judge Advocate General
tlolt with hla assistants at the other. I
Tho part of the room which was not
occupied by tho court was railed off,
and was taken up with a few scats fori
reporters and spectators generally, who
wcro crowded confusedly about, and,
rested as best they could against the
bare, whitewashed walls of tho room.
At the farther end of tho apartment
was a wooden railing, behind which, on
a. harrow, raised platform, sat the ac
cused men, all in a solemn row, with
an armed soldier sitting between every I
UVO persons. At tho left-hand corner , ,
