HEARN AND WILD, THE NEW FLAYERS FROM HAY DEN, DID NOT ARRIVE IN TIME TO BE OF ANY USE. < The following statement, signed by W. B. Martin, secretary of the Miami Miners’ union, and 11. S. Mc-Cluskey, organizer of the Miami Miners’ union, was today made public as explanatory of the action recently taken by the labor union men of the district in regard to the appointment of an advisory board and in regard to the rate of wages to be paid in connection with the building of the roads in case the bond’issue carries next Thursday: The attempt of the labor organizations of Globe, and Miami to make provisions for the economical expenditure of the road bond issue, if carried at the election this week, should have the support of every informed citizen. » Experience in the past has demonstrated conclusively that as far as the contract system on public work is concerned it is an absolute failure—the work being expensive, unsatisfactory, a cause of graft and, when finished, in a year or two has to be rebuilt. On the other hand, when the politicians and grafting business men have, been forced to keep their slimy hands off, public work done on the day’s wage basis has proved the cheapest method of doing such work and has also given the public full value for every dollar expended. We do not mean mistakes have not been made or will not be made in the future. That is Inevitable. But we invite a comparison with two or three notable instances in our own county. Take the Copper Hill road, built by County Engineer Roy Thomas, admittedly the best in Gila county and the cheapest of its kind in the state, being about a half-mile longer than the distance specified by Supervisors Rose, Devore and McDonald, and compare the surface, width, drainage, etc., with the section built by contract with red mud surfaces and no drainage. Take the San Carlos road as another example. One end built by contract: the other by the state under the day wage plan. And compare the work as to surface, bed, drainage, width, etc. The state made a ROAD; the contractors’ work will have to be rebuilt in various parts. Various other work may be cited to sustain the above argument. Notably the Panama canal. Goethels - built it cheaper than the estimates. The contractors failed. But to get results of this nature it is necessary to pay a standard wage to get the men to do the work. Efficiency means training. A man who is paid a standard wage will stay with the job and produce results. But where a job on the public roads is merely a grubstake men will not stay with it. As tiie law provides that American citizens or wards of the natiou only are to be employed, American wages should be paid. Americans do not live as peons live. The city of Globe, the town of Miami, Cochise and Yavapai counties pay a minimum wage of $3.50 a day for labor. The wages in this dltsrict average high-• er than they are 1n either Cochise or Yavapai counties as does the cost of living. Bo we should have a |3.50 minimum. WHY AN ADVISORY BOARD ? We elect a board of supervisors subject to the recall. A county engineer to build our roads is subject The Miami baseball team received one of the worst beatings of the season at the hands of the visiting Globo club yesterday. Very ragged fielding by the home players was mainly responsible for Globe’s victory, which was won by a 9 to 2 score. Kelly, the new pitcher from Hayden, worked the full game and while hit safely eleven times pitched a much better game than the score shows, and with decent support might have, won his game. But the Miami defense failed at critical times and wild heaves, muffs and boots allowed run after run to cross the plate. The team was further handicapped by the failure of Hearn anil Wild to arrive from Hayden in time to take part in the game. An accident to their car held them up on the road and they did not reach town until late yesterday afternoon and too late to be of any help in the contest. The visitors started in the third to make a batch of runs and the Miami players in their feeble way gave them all the assistance they could They bunched three errors and a wild pitch with Globe’s three hits and three runs resulted. In the eighth, with two out, Kelly passed two men. Miller then drove one hard to center which FVlts was barely able to toucli with the tip of bis glove. The ball rolled under the fence and all three men scored, while Felts was squirming under the fence in a frantic endeavor to retrieve the ball. He finally wriggled himself so far under that he was unable to back out or advance and the assistance, of the other fielders was needed to rescue him. In the ninth the visitors scored two more on a hit, base on balls dnd the regulation error. Miami scored one in the fifth and again in the ninth.

Miss Bertha Stark of Globe was selected to break the bottle of "boozette,” there being no booze. The “boozette” was soda water, but in the excitement of the launching the young lady forgot to break the bottle on the boat, and the “Duet” was set afloat only half christened. The boat is equipped with twenty-six life preservers, but so interested were ail in getting started on the first trip that no one thought of the life preservers and in the first journey the passengers trusted in God, enjoyed a two hours' ride and returned happy. At first the boat was tried off the Miami club landing till all was found in sea going condition, and the boat then ran to the dam, stopped at the Lodge Inn, took on a few more guests and proceeded up the Tonto end of the lake, returning to the landing at 6:30. Captain and Mrs. Faught, owners of the “Duet,” had as their guest on the first trip, Misses Bailie Herndon, Effie Stark and Bertha Stark, Messrs. Mike Murphy, Cliff Morse and E. A. Taft of Globe; Charles It. Adams, J. Webb, Arthur TroxiJl, Bob Johnson, Clarence Troxell, M. I). Hickoek, of Roosevelt Dam; Charles L. Meloy of Cochise; Fatt R. Sullivan of Miami, and Wylie Faught. The boat is a splendid one and slides through the water swiftly and smoothly. It will add greatly to the interval of a trip to Rooesvelt. as it will accommodate about thirty-five passengers. The “Duet” is named after Mrs. Duet Hunt, wife of Governor Hunt, Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Faught being old friends. 20 BOYS GO 10 ROOSEVELT LIKE STILL IN RETREAT REPORT FROM AUSTRIAN HEAD.

The tragedy was first discovered by Tom McKevitt, the son-in-iaw of the dead woman, who went to his home at about 8 o’clock for breakfast. Before going home Mr. McKivett attempted to telephone to his mother-in-law to ask if there was anything needed at the house, but as he failed to got an answer he hurried home, fearing that she was ill, and was confronted with the sight or his mother-in-law lying across the bed dead and her murderer gasping in the agony of death. That Mrs. Collins had been murdered but a short time before was evidenced by the fact that she had prepared iier own breakfast and was apparently about to partake of it when she was shot. Lamb was still alive and was removed to the county hospital, but he died at about 11 o'clock without regaining consciousness. Both the victims were shot through teh head, the gun used being a .32 calibre automatic. The cause of the tragedy was explained in a letter written by Lamb to Mrs. McKivett, in which lie stated that ills repeated offers of marriage had been refused by Mrs. Collins, and as he did not care to live without her he had decided to kill her and himself. In this letter he also gave the address of a sister in Dawson Springs, Ky., to whom lie wish 1 Ills personal effects to be sent. The dead woman, who was divorced from her husband a few' months ago, is survived by Leroy Mitchell, a son by a former marriage, and three daughters, Mrs. Toni McKivett and Mrs. Belle Scofield, both of Globe, and a married daugiiter in Michigan. Mrs. McKivett and Mrs. Schofield left a few days ago for a trip through California, with the expectation of spending about a month there. Lamb had been a resident of Globe for several months and was employed at the Old Dominion smelter. He was a man who appeared to be about 4 5 years of age, and had the reputation of being a steady worker. It was reported in Golbe today that lie had killed a man whom lie suspected of belug intimate with his former wife In Douglas and bad been sent to the penitentiary for the offense but later released on parole. The knowledge of this fact is said to have been given by Mrs. Collins as a reason for refusing to marry him. It Is only fair to state, however, that this story had not been verified by the authorities up to the time of going to press.
