Biography of Joseph B. Keeney

JOSEPH B. KEENEY. – The railroads have largely spoiled the big, old stage-line routes; but still a few of them remain. One of these is that between Pendleton and Heppner, Arlington, Fossil, and from The Dalles to Prineville. This route is conducted on the old style, and by a man fully up to the old-time requirements. This is Mr. Kenney. He was born in 1841, in Indiana, and came to California in 1852, and on a steamer which required sixty-six days from the Isthumus to San Francisco. In the spring of 1860 he went to Arizona and, with others, built Gila City. We now find him moving around rapidly, now in San José, now at Moroville, Nevada, and again at Alameda in California, variously in the hotel business, mining, and as deputy sheriff at the last place. In Nevada he began the peculiar but very accommodating business of driving over the country, taking orders for whatever the scattered ranchers needed, and filling them at Placerville; and upon such trips he frequently carried passengers. He subsequently conducted a stage line from Helena, Montana, to Fort Benton, following this by driving stage from Salt Lake to Provost, and on the road from Bear River Junction to Boise City. In 1868 he took charge of Wells, Fargo & Co’s business as agent, and followed this until the Union Pacific Railroad was finished. He drove the last stage between the two roads, the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific, the regular time for the nine miles being forty minutes. After this he had charge of the stage line from Kelton to Boise, and,...

Biographical Sketch of Hiram S. Stevens

Hiram S. Stevens was born in Western Vermont on March 20th, 1832, and came to Arizona in 1855. When a youth of 19 he enlisted as a United States soldier and came to New Mexico in Company “I,” First United States Dragoons. On being discharged from the service in 1855, he came to Arizona where he resided continuously up to the time of his death. At first he was a sporting man, then afterwards a trader and speculator, and in 1874, he was counted one of the richest men in the Territory. At this time he was elected Delegate to Congress. The story told of how his election was accomplished, is illustrative of the wild and woolly way of doing things at that time. The gambling fraternity was a very numerous and influential citizenship of Arizona. R. C. McCormick had served several terms in Congress, and in seeking a reelection, was supported by the administration, both territorial and national, which was a force hard to overcome. Stevens was equal to the occasion. He took twenty-five thousand dollars for his campaign fund and sent his agent to all the prominent gamblers in the Territory, saying to them: “Bet one thousand; bet two thousand; three thousand, according to the influence of the man and his following, on Stevens being elected, and if you win, return to me the amount which you have wagered, keeping your winning.” In this way he enlisted the active support of the sporting fraternity of Arizona, with the result that he was elected by a handsome majority. He served two terms as Delegate to Congress; several terms...
