Threat to Exterminate American
Colony at Greene's Mines at Ca-
nanea Surviwra Standing v
Siege Troops Hurry
' jJjTaco, Atiz. June 1. Forty-five
Americans and Mexicans were kill
ed to-day at C inanea, 4O miles south
I of here, where is located thflagreal
copper camp of Col. V. C. Greene.
1 He camp is on tire, ana it is re
ported that the Mexicans are defy
ing all authority. They are report
ed to be using dynamite in blowing
up the great smelters and mills
owned by the Greene company.
The trouble arose at Cananea ov
er the demand of the Mexicans for
an increase in wages from $3.50 to
$5.00 per day. Parties who left
there at 1.3o this afternoon said
that Colonel Greene was addressing
practically the entire population of
the camp in an effort to pacify the
excited Mexicans. However, be
tween 4 and 5 o'clock this after
noon the Mexicans opened fire on
the Americans, and -4o or more
Colonel Greene wired at once to
Bisbee for all the armed men that
could be sent to protect the Ameri
cans and their property at Cananea.
The population ot Cananea is 2o
oco, of which 5,ooo are Americans.
The family of Colonel Greene ar
rived here this afternoon, but the
colocel remains with his property.
The trains loaded with refugees are
nw on the way here from Cananea,
and will gi to Bisbee.
At 11:30 tonight a train load of
refugees arrived here from tbe scene
of the trouble and confirmed the
stories received tarlier in the evt
o;ng. It is known that at least a
dozen Americans have been killtd,
and 4o or 50 Mexicans. George
Me'calf, who was in charge of t be
large lumber business of theGreane
oompany, was one of the first men
to be killed.
At tbe lumber yard a large fire
hoe was b ought out aed, as the
Mexicans approached the office, wa
ter was turned on them. At the
same time Metcaif advanced on the
crowd with a riflrf. The Mexicans
clont-d on him, tiok tbe gnn from
hid h tuds and beat him to death
with it. William Metcaif rushed
10 the tescue of bis urcle, end was
shot bv iba Mexicans.
After killing the two Metcalfs,
the Mq'cana rushed into the Office
and lumber yard and set fire to
both, causing the destruction of
property valued at $253.ooo. The
general office of the Greene compa
ny was alo burned. They then
left the lumber yard and dynamited
a powder houee near the Sonora
hotel for the purpose cf securing
arms and bmmuiiition.
Here tbe Mexican police attacked
the mob, and a fierce battle ensued,
several officers and a dozen Btrikers
A train carrying loo men left
here for Cananea. Twenty-five
armed men came dowh from Bisbee
and are guarding the American line
here; Thirs has been figbticg be
tween this party and Mexican aus
The eaity started to cross the 1'ie
half a mile below Naco and vi s
fired on by Mexicans in ambush.
One man named Backcer was shot
through the arm and several are
missing. Shots are frequently
heard, and it is feared that olhers
may be killed or hurt. It is not
known whether any of the ambush
ed Mexicans are killed or not.
When the last train left . Cana
nea Colonel Greene's residence was
being barricaded and all the re
maining Americans were gathering
there and arming for defense. The'
Presbyterian church, which is near
the Greene residence, is also filled
with people and borricaded. The
Americans are said to be seriously
handicapped for lack of ammuni
tion. The number of striking Mexicans
is estimated at 5,000, and they were
making threats against all Ameri
cans when the last train palled out
from the camp. There are fiom 50
to 75 Mexican police in Cananea,
and they are doing what they can
to quell the disturbance. Urgent
measures bave been sent to Wash
ington for assistance.
IE is Baid that United Statf s Con
sul Galbraith wired to the state de
Dartuaent.that his life and those of
all Americans in the camp are in
danger. Colonel Greene has tele
phoned for every available armed
man thai can be secured at Bisbee
While the crowd was grthering
this afternoon Colonel Greene rode
down tbe crowded streets in his au
tomobile and told the men that he
could not- accede to their demands.
There is grave fear that an at
tempt will be made to destroy tbe
great reduction plant of the Greene
company at Cananea, which cost
millioas of dollars. It would re
vuire many millions to replace it.

Gose Contests Governor,
Yesterday's voting resulted in
the election of the republican state
ticket with the exception of gov
ernor which is in doubt, and with
the chances said to be in favor of
Chamberlain. It also resulted in
the defeat of the proposed local
option amendment, known other
wise as the Jayne bill. The equal
rights amendment was also snow
ed under by a considerable major
ity. I,inn county went dry by a
majority of 400, Lane county went
the same way, and so did Lincoln
county, as well as Benton, the lat
ter by a dimished majority over
that of two years ago. Independ
ence also went dry, but Polk coun
ty continued wet by a majority of
In Benton county, A. J. Johnson
was elected senator, V. A. Carter,
representative, E. Woodward,
judge, George Smith, commission
er, Telt Burnett, sheriff, Emery
Newton, recorder. W. A. Buchan
an, treasurer, Thomas Jones, . sur
veyor, and S. N. Wilkihs, coroner.
Woodward's plurality over Wilson
is 14 votes. It is not likely that
the official count wil change the
result. Burnett's majority is 84,
and Vincent's 85. The vote in
Soap Creek precinct on commis
sioner was, Dodele, 67, Smith 7.
W. A. Buchanan's plurality is - 137
anh Newton's over Hall is 191.
Smith was elected over Dodele by
a large majority, the figures of
which are not known. Dr. Withy
combe carried the county by 305,
Hawley, 200, and Bourne 180. The
county went dry by a plurality of
100 to 150, and the local option
amendment was defeated by a much
larger vote. All the above figures
were received by telephone and of
course subject to change by the of
ficial count. The official canvass
of the returns will be made tomorrow.
