Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

If you truly want to atone for your, sins, which are merely venal, say three hail marys, four our fathers, smack yourself over the head with a rolled up newspaper and encourage Senor Borozan to contact us so we can get his great-grandfather's story, photographs and whatever supporting material he has to add to our files on the deportees.

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

Hey, we all make mistakes, just like the heartless bastards who perpetrated the Deportation did. Yours were very pale by comparison. One last thing. The July 11 meeting merely gave the go-ahead for the planned action. The decision had been made at least two days before the Deportation and probably even earlier. At 4 pm on July 10, Phelps Dodge rushed someone to the County Recorder's Office, then located in Tombstone. He recorded 199 deputizations of men who had been sworn on June 28-30. Same thing happened the day before with a bunch of deputizations requested by Calumet & Arizona. The caca was a out to hit the fan.

Re: “Danehy

You of all people should that it's a good thing to know thine enemy. If you had been around here as long as I have you'd know that Tom and I have been going at it for ages. We actually get along well. We just never agree. When a reader made a rather vulgar remark about Tom's wife, who jumped in to defend her? When Tom's kids were making a trip to N.Y.C., who did Tom ask about places to visit and places to eat? Maybe one day Tom will to post a comment here to bear me out, but I wouldn't hold my breath. It's just as how he is. As far as not having a life, it's obvious you don't know me.

Re: “Danehy

I don't think so Vietnam Vet. I think we have entered a period in history when we realize that young, impressionable minds are at risk and many find debate and disagreement a constitutional right that they want to exercise. After watching the actions of CNN and MSNBC over the last eight months, it does seem necessary to push back against the so called "swamp rats." Things are seldom as the outlets report, and Americans are catching on that something is very wrong here. Is it public school indoctrination, or is it happening in our colleges with tenured liberal professors?

Funny you mention religion. You could be right, because in John 8:32 it says,

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

It's a daily search in a weekly that's printed bi weekly. How could it get any better?

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

This is Tom. You have no idea how much I hate making mistakes. I apologize for any errors. There is no excuse. I will say this: When I was interviewing Sam Borozan (when he was in the hospital), I had him spell his ancestor's name multiple times. In his raspy voice, I could have sworn he said the last name started with a "B," not a "V". I messed up. I'm sorry.

Re: “Danehy

Why do "people" who hate and disagree with Danehy follow him as if their religion requires it? Could it be that they have NO LIVES?

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

Dan Frey is also a member of the Bisbee Centennial Commemoration Committee and one of the three Bisbee historians (along with Charles Bethea and myself) who wrote the articles on the Deportation for the Spring/Summer 2017 edition of the Cochise County Historical Journal. Dan did copious research on the reasons for, and events leading up to, the Deportation. Charles, also the committee chairman and author of "The Copper Chronicles" which airs on KBRP-LP, intensively studied the day of the Deportation and 1917 Bisbee in general. I researched the deportees and their lives after the deportation and continue to do so. Thanks to people like Tom Danehy and Mr. Borozan, our understanding of the Deportation increases day by day.

Correction to my just-posted post: the IUMMSW disavowed the strike in 1917, not 1907 (guess I should edit before I post).

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

Danehy's heart is in the right place, but there are a few more factual errors to point out. The IWW presented the demands on June 26, 1917 not in May 1917. The strike began on June 27. Personal inspection of the miners was not a specific demand at that time; there was a demand to end discrimination against miners belonging to "any organizations" (i.e. unions). The IUMMSW was a direct "descendant" of the Western Federation of Miners, which had conducted the Bisbee miners' strike in 1907.. Although its national leadership disavowed the strike in 1907, the organization was not merely a "fraternal organization." Phelps Dodge was not the only company involved in the "big drive." Calumet & Arizona and Shattuck were other participants, although Douglas's PD led the way. The Villa raid on Columbus was not 5 years earlier; it was a mere 16 months before, in March 1916. Finally, although they attempted to prevent phone and telegraph communication, individuals were successful in getting word out--including to the federal government--by going to Naco.

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

OK, Mr. Borozan, I found your great-grandfather in the 1920 U.S. census, working as a miner and living in Dubacher Canyon, one canyon east of Brewery Gulch. He's also listed in the Evergreen Cemetery database (with his name misspelled, as was common with the names of Serbs and Montenegrins in those days.) It appears that he died in 1922, not 1920 and is buried in the IOOF section of the cemetery. He makes the 14th deportee (possibly 15th, but George Rice is not yet confirmed to my satisfaction) we know of who is buried in Bisbee's Evergreen Cemetery - there are likely more. I'll check the McKinney's Bisbee city directory for 1916-17 later today to see if he's listed in it. Please contact me so we can complete this story. I am changing "Eli Vukson's" name in our database to Eli Vuksanovich and will start building a file on him.

Re: “Danehy

This is the first time I have read the Weekly and found this article by a kool-aid drinking democrat that spews the trash that most of the talking heads on TV spew....which by the way is not just limited to democrats. Unfortunately, the public is exposed to this trash that these 'talkers' expound as news. Hopefully the readers understand that articles like this are 'trash' and even though its hard to find...look up the facts to political articles. Just bet this guy thinks he's a cutting edge proponent.... he's not....just a immature guy with access to a little weekly. Where's his editor..probably use to work for CNN.... but then maybe Tucson's answer to the NYT.

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

Mr. Borozan, we are indeed creating a record! Please contact me through the Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum (520-432-7071) or through the "Friends of Warren Ballpark" website (www.friendsofwarrenballpark.com) or the Friends' Facebook page. It appears that your great-grandfather is listed on the one surviving census taken during August 1917 at Camp Furlong in Columbus as "Eli Vukson." My wife and I read Eli's name and the names of 900 other deportees while standing on Coote's Hill overlooking Camp Furlong in Columbus a few weeks ago. We would very much like to add his story and photographs to our rapidly-growing list of deportees. Many of the names of the deportees were mangled by the Army officer (CPT Dorcy) who took them down a century ago, which makes tracking deportees from a century's distance problematical but not impossible. The members of the Bisbee Deportation Centennial Commemoration Committee would also welcome you and/or other members of your family to attend our events here in Bisbee over the next two weeks.

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

It should also be noted that similar tactics were used by the mining company in Ludlow, Colrado: the deputizing of armed vigilantee's for the armed deportation of striking worker. In the case of Ludlow they burned down the worker camps, killing men, women, and children. Making America GRATE again.

Re: “Old-School Corporate Greed

This is Mr. Denehy's best article he has ever written, even with the factual errors noted by other commentators. One important aspect not noted is the fraudulent govenors election that replaced a progressive, pro-worker administration (see Hunt and Campbell). While it may be hard to believe that Arizona was once progressive, the Bisbee '17 Deportation changed that, even after the fix was proven. Thanks for a well written and important article (for a change).
