Tucson Daily Citizen 1904-05-05
Edward Tewksbury, the last of the principals in the Tewksbury-Graham war of 1889, died in the Gila county Hospital April 28. He had been a paralytic for a long time and his death was hastened by pulmonary consumption. He left a wife and three children. In 1892, Tom Graham, the last member of that family who participated in the war, was shot from an ambush and killed near Mesa. Ed Tewksbury was arrested, charged with the crimeand indicted. After a sensational trial at Phoenix, during which the widow of Graham attempted to shoot Tewksbury and threats of lynching him were made, Tewksbury was found guilty on evidence that was whooly circumstanctial, and by many considered insufficent. On an error the court set aside the verdict and Tewksbury secured a change of venue to Pima County. After a trial in which the jury disagreed, and confinement in the Tucson jail for upwards of a year, the charge against Tewksbury was dismissed and he was given his liberty. The reason for dismissal was that the case had been a very expensive one and there seemed to be no prospect of securing conviction.

Word was sent to the officers, who sent out and brought the body in. and Justice Bowlings, acting as coroner, summoned a jury, who after Investigating the case brought in a verdict charging the Indians with the crime. An autopsy was made by Dr. Collins, who found the skull fractured by some blunt instrument, to an extent sufficient to cause death.  The Indian was known as San Carlos B 33. He was buried Monday by the county. Sheriff Thompson telegraphed to San Carlos about the matter, and the Indians were found and placed in the Jail there, and will be brought here for preliminary hearing.

A Tribute to a Pioneer Citizen He Broke the Trail For Overland
On the occasion of the death of Chas.H. Kenyon, of Globe, a few weeks ago it was published in these columns, says the Phoenix Republican, that Mr. Kenyon was one of the early settlers in these parts, he having lived in this valley before he did in Globe, and having come here on the overland stage that crossed southern Arizona from Tucson to Yuma. George E. Mowry, of this city, who at that time was or the place where this city now is, though it was not then, says the Republican did not put it strong enough. Mr. Kenyon was not only an early settler, but tie was one of the very first and the very best men who came here. Furthermore, he broke the trail for the overland, having come here as a military expressman or mail carrier when Fort McDowell was first established. He came here from New Mexico with Col. Bennett and a detachment of twenty cavalry as an escort. Mr. Kenyon had two mounts, one a horse and the other a mule. The horse, Mr. Mowry says, was about the finest saddle animal, perhaps the very best one, that ever threw a hoof in this territory and the mule was very nearly as good. He would ride first one andthen the other, using the alternate animal as a pack horse. Compared to the inconveniences of those days the overland stages of a later date were perfect palace cars.

He Was a Pioneer of Globe and First Probate Judge of Gila County
The San Francisco Chronicle of last Sunday contains an account of the death of Judge Gustavus A. Swasey on the night previous, resulting from a fall down a flight of stairs at his home, 647 Geary street.
Judge Swasey was a pioneer of Globe, Arizona, having come here from California in 1876, soon after the camp was established, in company of C. F. Palmer. The judge was a prominent figure for many years having held the office of justice of the peace and when Gila county was created he was elected probate judge. In 1885 he left Globe, returning to California, and for many years resided at Alameda where he was a justice of the peace. '
The Chronicle says:
"Shortly after 11 o'clock last night Judge Swasey left his room and started for another part of the house. In some way he lost his balance and fell down the stairs, a distance of about thirty-five feet. Mrs. Smith, the landlady, heard the old gentleman fall and hurried to his assistance. She called in medical aid but he died without regaining consciousness.
Gustavus A. Swasey was born on the 23d of May, 1815, in North Yarmouth, Me., while that state was an outlying appendage of the Old Bay

Mrs. Chas. A. Canfield Shot by Former Coachman, Morris Buck.
Wm. T. S. Buck Killed Archie Borquez in Globe by Splitting His Skull With a Cleaver Sentenced to Yuma, Was Pardoned for Saving Warden's Life.
The sensation of the week at Los Angeles was the atrocious murder of Mrs. C. A. Canfield, a women of wealth and position, by her former coachman, Morris Buck, whose only excuse for the revolting crime was that his victim had refused his demand for $2600.
Buck appeared at the Canfield residence late Saturday afternoon and asked to see Mrs. Canfield who, upon her return from a drive, went out on the porch where Buck was waiting, despite the warning and pleadings of the servants who were alarmed at his sinister appearance. Upon Mrs. Canfield's second refusal to give Buck money, he drew a revolver and fired.
The bullet struck Mrs. Canfield in the chest and glanced, the wound not being fatal. She fell face downward on the porch and Buck deliberately bent over her prostrate form, turned her over and fired a second shot into her body. Buck escaped from the premises, but was soon afterwards captured by a special officer in Westlake Park. The people of the neighborhood, enraged at the dastardly crime, would have lynched the murderer had not his captor hurried him away to jail.
Recalls the Borquez Murder
The deplorable affair is of especial interest here, for the reason that Morris Buck is a brother of William T. S. Buck who murdered Archie F. Borquez on the morning of April 20, 1900, which was the most revolting crime ever committed in Globe or Gila county.
Borquez was found about 7 o'clock in the morning lying dead on his cot, in a room back of Wm. Sidow & Co's butcher shop, his skull having been split open with a cleaver as he peacefully slept. Several men were arrested on suspicion of having connection with the murder, which was finally fastened upon Buck by a chain of strong circumstantial evidence. Archie Borquez was
a partner of Wm Sidrow and manager of the business. Buck was employed by the firm as a butcher. Jealously over a woman was assigned as the motive of the crime.
Wm. T. S. Buck was indicted for the murder of Boiquez at the June, 1900.term of the district court. The trial began on June 18th and was concluded on June 20th, the jury bringing in a verdict of guilty. On the following day Buck was sentenced to life imprisonment at Yuma. The case was ably prosecuted by Geo. J. Stoneman, district attorney.
After Buck had served upwards of three years of his sentence an incident happened which he turned to his advantage. There was a mutiny among the prisioners, two of whom attacked the superintendent of the prison, Wm. Griffith, who probably would have been killed had not Buck come to his rescue armed with an knife, and driven his assailants off. severly wounding one of them, and defeating the attempted outbreak.
As a reward for this service Buck received a pardon, and left the territory.
The Bucks are evidently a family of degenerates, two of the sisters located in Southern Arizona living dessolute lives.
It is a singular coincident that Morris Buck. the murderer of Mrs. Canfield, was, according to his brother story, struck on the head with a cleaver about three years ago by a man at a hotel somewhere in Arizona, and it is claimed has never been right in his mind since.

S. P. Marker, a musician who played in one of the saloons at the lower end of town, was run over and cut to pieces by incoming passenger train No. 10 last Saturday night, about 1 mile south of town.
It was shown by the evidence adduced at the coroner's inquest that Marker had been in the company of John Nelson and Dan Cullom, and that all three men were intoxicated.
Nelson testified that he did his best to save Marker, having pulled him off the track fifteen or more times, and had hold of his hand when the engine struck Marker, and Nelson claims that he was knocked twenty or thirty feet down the embankment.

Friend of Arizona Dead
Chicago, July 12. Congressman C. H. Adams, of Wisconsin, died today at the Auditorium hotel, where he had been ill for several weeks. His home was at Madison, Wisconsin.
Congressman Adams was one of the congressional party who visited Arizona last October for the purpose of learning the true conditions as bearing upon the proposition to make one state of Arizona and New Mexico. He visited every important city in the territory and became thoroughly convinced of the impracticability of joint statehood for Arizona and New Mexico. During the trip he became acquainted with the strong public sentiment here against the jointures, and when the statehood bill was before congress he was one of the truest friends Arizona had in the fight for justice to her people.
The announcement of the death of Congressman Adams will create profound sorrow in this territory. Morenci Leader
