Bisbee--Asa T. Hoy, former business manager of the Bisbee
Review and William Bockholt, a linotype operator were murdered
at 2:00 this morning in the machine room of the Review by
William Pfankuck, a printer from Douglas.  The tragedy is the
culmination of a strike of three weeks ago by the members of
the local union against the Review.

The strike had its origin in a change by which Hoy surrendered
the position of business manager and took a place at one of the
machines. It was afterward decided that as a part owner of the
paper he had that right under the rules of the union.

Pfankuck entered the machine room unobserved and took a
position behind Bockholt and Hoy who were seated side by side
at the machines.  He first shot Bockholt in the back and before
Hoy could defend himself he, too, was shot in the back, falling
from his chair dead.  Bockholt sprang form his chair and
running to the business office, fell dead.

There were two other occupants of the room, Miguel Arabelo,
the make-up and a boy, Lee Hamilton, employed in setting heads. 
The murderer fired at Arabelo who ran. Pfankuck took a shot at
the boy and then started in pursuit of Arabelo who escaped by
sliding down an elevator cable, though fired at as he was

The firing attracted the attention of Officer Wilmoth, who,
when he appeared, received a shot in the arm.  This emptied
the revolver and Pfankuck surrendered to Officer Henry Odall
who by this time appeared on the scene.

The manner of Pfankuck was cool; he betrayed no excitement. 
He assured the officer that he was not crazy, saying "This is
not a Harry Thaw case." He said he had killed Hoy and two or
three others; he had shot at everything he could see.  Pfankuck
was hurried across the country to the county jail at Tombstone.

Hoy came to Bisbee about six years ago and had been connected
with the Review ever since. He was a gun man himself; had
killed a man in Texas but had been acquitted on the grounds
of self-defense.

Bockholt lived at Covington, Kentucky and had been in Bisbee
only three days. Not a great deal is known of the murderer.
He had been employed in the newspaper offices here but after
the trouble at the Review office he worked at Douglas.  It is
reported that some years ago he killed a man at Fort Riley,
Kansas, was sentneced to the penitentiary for life, but not
long after was released by pardon. It was the opinion of
those who talked with him after the killing this morning that
he was insane. He is 27 years of age.

History of Arizona, 1896

Although established at a comparatively recent date, it must
be admitted that one of the most notable banking houses in
Arizona is the Mesa City Bank which was organized and opened
February 1893 with a paid up capital of $20,000.  William
Christy holds the responsible position of president, C.W.
Crouse, vice-president and E.W. Wilbur cashier.  E.W. Wilbur
was born in Greenwood, McHenry County, Illinois, April 16,
1845, son of O.G. and Elizabeth (Willis) Wilbur, natives of
Massachusetts.  The parents moved to the Prairie State in
1843, settled in McHenry County and there the father tilled
the soil all his life.  The mother is also deceased.

Young Wilbur, after growing to sturdy manhood on the farm and
after securing a fair education in the common schools, began
the study of medicine and was graduated from the medical
department of the University of Philadelphia in 1870.  The
same year, he commenced practicing at Rockford, Iowa and
remained in active practice until the spring of 1892, when
he made his way to Arizona.  While a resident of Rockford he
was president of the School Board and served six years in the
State Legislature. He was a member of the Iowa State Medical
Society and others, and was surgeon for the Burlington, Cedar
Rapids and Northern Railroad for about twenty years.  Mr.
Wilbur was a well known and popular man in Iowa and is also
influential in Arizona.

In 1892 he located at Mesa City and there he has since resided.
He was the organizer of the Mesa City Bank and has been its most
efficient cashier since its organization.  He has retired from
active practice and has turned his entire attention to the
banking business. Mr. Wilbur owns considerable ranch property,
is engaged in buying and selling land and established the Mesa
Real Estate Company with E.W. Wilbur manager and T.E. Pomeroy
secretary.  They do all kinds of real estate and loan business
and are wide awake men. In all his enterprises Mr. Wilbur has
met with unusual success.

In the year 1871 he married Miss Delia Hoy, a native of McHenry
County, Illinois and they have four children living--George H.,
Walter H., Ethel and Everett.
