Washington, Sept- 26—The new
code of rules and regulations for the
government of the railroads of the
United States becomes effective this
week. The interstate commerce
commission says in explanation; “The
railroads of the country are called up-
on to unite themselves so that they
will constitute one national system.
They must establish through routes,
keep these routes open and in opera-
tion, furnish the necessary facilities
of transportation. make reasonable
and proper rules of practice as be-
tween themselves and the shippers
and as between each other.
“Carriers are required to make rea-
sonable rules and regulations with re-
spect to the exchange, interchange
and return of cats used upon through
routes and for the operation of such
through routes, and where they have
failed in this respect the commission
Is empowered to determine the indi-
vidual or joint regulation or practice
that is just, fair and reasonable.
"The commission will make no or-
ders In this case, relying upon the
good faith of the carriers under the
laws as presented herein to make
such regulations for car exchange and
for the maintenance of the through
rates Involved as may be needed.”

Blsbee, Arts., Sept. 25.—-Never In tbe his-
tory ot Cochise county has there been n
suit that Uas created so deep or wide
spread interest as that which will he be-
fore tbe courts when the clerk at Tuuib-
slono calls tbe case of Cunningham vs.
Costello. Such interest extends beyond
the confine* of old Cochise to other parts
of the state, Is deeper at every pluce
where either Martin Costello or Paddy
Cunningham was known and is deepest
here, where not only were the parties
through whom litigation comes were
known hut where the mining properties
which produced such litigation are located
and known as some of the most valuable
producers of the district. For these rea-
sons the trial of the suit brought by the
minor children of Patrick Cunningham
against the estate of Martin Costello will
lie intently watched by a large proportion
of the residents lu and about Blsbee and
It will he a general subject of comment
and conversation, the faeta and allegations

Nature of the Action. "
Mary Alleen Cunuiugham and Patrick-Ill
.1.1 alia Cunningham, through EnillMnrkaof
this city, who Is their guardian ad
litem, are suing the estate of the late
Martin Costello to recover u sum which
slightly exceeds $308,0011. alleging that
this is due to them from a partnership of
Joint interest of. their late father with the
late Martin Costello In Seventeen mining
claims In the Wflfreu district which Cos-
tello sold after the death of Cttnnlng-
Uaht for a synt that narrowly approaches
a million dollars. A half Interest lit this
vast sum. together with accrued Inter-
est, is the subject mutter of the suit
brought. There- may have been other ur
tlons that Involved property valued at
sums approaching this amount, tiut there
has never been lu Cochise county an ac-
tion brought where such a sum of uctual
cash was sought to lie recovered.
Claims That Are Involved.
No effort- will he made In this action
to disturb the title of the claims that eu
ter into the controversy in the hands uf
the present owners mid no attack upon
the conveyances nindc by Costello is mnde.
The lltlgnlion is on tbe proceeds of the
sale of those claims slid not in the prop-
erty Itself which Is safely vested in the"
Calumet A Arizona, Pittsburg & Duluth
and the Shat tuck Artsona. There are four
groupa of elalms mentioned In the pnpers
of the case and they total In nil seven-
teen. These nre the Irish Stag, George
Washington. Old Republican nnd Augcl,
of the Irish Mag group. The Wagner,
Senator, Senator (2), Pride, Hope, Gllirnl-
ter, Buckeye and Supplement form the
Wagner group and the Belleflowor, Hattie
Manchester aud Smuggler nnd Roy and
Leo claims form the other two groups.
Allege Early Partnership.
Pntrlck (or Paddy) Cnnhiiighiiiii cnuie
lo Tombstone, In the early SU’s and to
Blsbee In 1883 and 188s. At Tombstone
lie worked In the mines and whs nt one
time foreman of the Toughnut. There he
met Miirtln Costello snd It was there that
the friendship und business nssoclalton nl-
Icgcd to have existed between the two was
commenced. This was continued later In
Coming to Blsbee In the middle 8(l's, It
Is said that Cunningham ami Costello 1>5-
gan to acquire claligs and groups of
claims, either Jointly or In partnership.
At that time the Irish Mag group was
owned by a man named Duly who Is said
to have committed a murder and
escaped. It Is snhl that Cunningham and
Costello started to acquire this ground
aud to quiet title begun legal proceed-
ings. 'file Duly Cohen ease resulted and
tilts was settled lu ISIH), after the death
of Cunningham, who was killed In tho
Holbrook shaft July 1, 1800.
It la atated that Cunningham did not
regularly work In the mines after coming
to Blsln-e lint that he did some work In
the summers lo raise money to keep up
the assessment work on me elalms he
acquired, which only n small payment on
accouut was made, and that tin-re is now-
due nnd owing lo the minor plaintiffs for
principal und Interest upwards of $525,-
Tbe Other Hide.
The contention of the defense will be
that there was no partnership between
Costello nnd Cunnlngliniu in the seventeen
claims. They will admit a Joint owner-
ship 111 six of tbe claims hut will ullcge
payment in full of the aniouut due Cun-
ningham for sneb Jolut Interest nnd a
relense from him to Costello of rights,
claims and demands of every kind, na
tore and description ns the consideration
for such payment. They deny that half
n million dollars or any other sum is due
to the plaintiffs.
Parties Well Known.
There linve been no better known men
In southern Arisons tlmn were these two
pioneers uf the early days. As stated,
Cunningham was a miner nt Tombstone
when he first came to this section sad
resided In Unit famous cuinp for n number
of years before coming to Blsbee. this
ramp lielng then In Its Infancy. Every
one who knew Blsbee In those days knew
Paddy Cunningham. At his death be left
a widow, Mrs. Julia Cunningham, and
two young children who moved to lx>» An-
geles, which Is now- their home. They have
been In Blshee for the past few weeks In
consultation with counsel preparatory to
trial of tbelr case.
Martin Costello was h well known
figure In Tombstone, Blsbee. Douglas and
Tucson for many years. Attorney Ben
(iomlrich says: "1 have been in Arizona
for thirty-two years and It seem* to me
I knew Mnrtln Costello nearly all that
time.” Costello w-ns lltle more lhan a boy
when he reached Arizona, lu the early
day* of Tomhstoiie he opened and conduct-
ed n saloon. He was careful and thrifty,
snved Ills money and had an eye to the
future which was always on the lookout
for a chance for profitable Investment
In mining properties or real estate. In
that way he amassed a fortune which la
variously estimated at seven figures. The
proceeds of his successful mining ven-
tures he invested lo real estate and in
bond and mortgage. He owned much of
Tombstone and had large Interests In this
city. In Douglas and lu Tucson, ot one
Mine having been the holder of the large
mortgage on the Gadsden hotel in Donglas.
The death of Costello la too well re-
memWrYii to require mere than passing
mention. He was a suicide at Ios Angeles,
at which place lie had made a beautiful
bom- for bis- family, shortly over a year
ago kept. 13, I81L That eveulug after
