PLAIN LANGUAGE FROM
C TABLE MOUNTAIN, 1870.
The following is the production of Mr.
Francis Bret Harte, editor of The Overland
Monthly. This 'plain language' was put
forth about four months ago, and has done
more to immortalize the author than any
or all of his previous literary creations.
In short, 'the heathen Chinee' is already
an imperishable saying with all wherever
the English language is spoken, and lately
we see that a Chicago house has had this
'peculiarly' quaint gem set to music. Hav
ing heard the Avords frequently called for,
we take occasion now to put them perma
nently on file in Tiie Citizen ofiice.
" Which I wish to remark
And my language is plain
That for ways that are dark
And for tricks that are vain,
The heathen Chinee is peculiar;
Which the same I would rise to explain.
Ah Sin was his name;
And I shall not deny
In regard to the same
What that name might imply,
But his smile it was pensive and child-like,
As I frequent remarked to Bill Nye.
It was August the third ;
And quite soft was the skies;
Which it might be inferred
That Ah Sin was likewise:
Yet he played it that da-upon William
Anu me m a way l despise.
Which we had a small game,
And Ah Sin took a hand;
It was Euchre. The same
He did not understand;
But he smiled as he sat bv the table, Tbland
With the smile that was child-like and
Yet the cards they were stocked
In a way that I grieve,
And my feelings were shocked
At the state of Nye's sleeve,
Which was stalled lull of aces and bowers,
And the same with intent to deceive.
But the hands that were played
By that heathen Chinee,
And the points that were made
Were quite frightful to see
Till at last he put down a right bower,
Which the same Nye had dealt uuto me.
Then I looked up at Nye,
And he gazed upon me;
Then he rose with a sigh,
And said, 'Can this be?
We are ruined by Chinese cheap labor,'
And he went for that heathen Chinee.
In the scene that ensued
I did not take a hand,
But the floor it was strewed
Like the leaves on the strand,
With the cards that Ah Sin had been hiding,
In the game 'he did not understand.'
In his sleeves, which were long,
He had twenty-four packs
Which is coming it strong,
Yet I state but the facts ;
And we found on his nails, whi ch were taper,
What is frequent in tapers that's wax.
Which is why I remark,
And my language is plain,
That for ways that are dark,
And for tricks that are vain,
The heathen Chinee is peculiar
Which the same I am free to maintain.
About Advertising. This branch of
the business of The Citizen is increasing
as usual, and we intend to make it to the
advantage of all who wish to take stock of
that sort in the coucern. The paper will
contain an equal amount of non-advertising
matter on each page editorial, local,
etc., and it will be a pleasure as well as a
matter of business to look after any
changes, improvements, additions, &c,

Miller) quien es un lionibre de una
disposicion firme, habia prendido si
tal Estrada para conducirle al lugar
destinado, cuando el conductor fue in
terrogado de conceder el permiso :l lie
gar a su casa, cerca de la plaza, a un
lado de la Iglesia, y tomar su frasa

creyendolo tan astuto ; pero el prisio
nero, mientras Mr. Miller le aguarda
ba a la puerta, procuro un Spencer
que liabia en la casa. Lo agarro y a
tento matar a Mr. Miller, pero al pre
sentarselo al peclio, quizo extraer el

prisionero comensaron la mas temerosa
luoha, y al mismo tiempo, el Alguacil

fin logro sacar la pistola que traia con-
cigo (no babiendo tenido hantes lugar)

tres balazoi antes de dejarlo insen
sible, y hoy ya servini de ejemplo pa

MINING IN ARIZONA.
Of all the Territories of the United
States, Arizona has been, perhaps, the
most unfavorably situated as regards
the conditions of immediate develop
ment. Diificulfcy and cost of trans
portation, the hostility of Avarlike and
cruel Indians, general ignorance on
the part of the public concerning the
great natural resources of the country,
and the lack of capital to assist indus
trial enterprises, have all combined to
hinder the progress of this territory
towards the wealth and prosperity
wmen it is destined to attain, it is
surprising, that in the face of such
obstacles the mining history of Arizo
na should have survived at all. The
phenomenon is only to be explained
by the fact of extraordinary natural
The evils to which we have referred
are but temporary in their nature, and
are already beginning to disappear,
The Indian question is the most press
ing; and that is not complicated in
Arizona with any doubts as to the pro
per policy to' be pursued. "Whatever
may be said about keeping peace with
the tribes of other regions, all parties
are agreed that the only thing to be
done with the Apaches is to fijrht
them. If this is done vigorously,
there can be but one result. They
will be thoroughly subdued or com
Next to this in necessity is the ac
quisition of information concerning
the resources of Arizona. Eecogniz-
ing the fundamental importance of
this measure, the United States Com
missioner of Mining Statistics has de
voted the greater part of the means at
his disposal during the present year to
an examination of that lemtory.
The field-notes already received are in
many respects highly encouraging. It
appears that, buried in the depths of
this remote region, there are mines
and mills, managed with, economy
and success, of which tue general pub
lic hears but little. Tnough these en
terprises are as yet but few in num
ber, their very existence, under the
adverse circumstances to which we
have referred, is a proof of remarka
ble natural advantages, which must
afford a basis for extraordinary pros
For instance, the Big Bug Mining
Company is working a mine about
twenty-five miles fron Prescott, haul
ing the ore one or two miles to the
stamp mill, and regularly reducing
the ore twelve tons daily, at a profit,
in spite of imperfect machinery and
excessive transportation. The ore at
present extracted is decomposed and
easily treated ; and the supply in view,
of his quality of materials, is sufficient
ly for two years' operation. Meanwhile,
in each of three shafts massive sulph
urets have been reached m depth,
promising a permanent production for
the future, though requiring a change,
when the time comes, m the method
of treatment. The business-like regu
larity and economy of the operations
of this company are worthy of high
praise, and wo do not see why its
prospects should not be considered
both sound and brilliant.
The Vulture mine, no one needs to
be told, is one of the most valuable in
the United States. "When capital
comes to the aid of labor in Ar
izona, we expect to see many other
enterprises started into .life, as healthy
and active as the two we have men
tioned. There are many valuable
mining properties around Prescott,
but most of them are poorly develop
ed; and the same is true of other
mining districts in Arizona.
"Wo hear the English capital is be
ing largely invested this year on the
Pacific coast, and that some of it has
turned to Arizona. Let us hope that
it will be directed with skill, and pru-
dence so tllat no faiiures, due t(tlie
stupidity or dishonesty ot managers,
ghall be unjustly charged against the
Territory, for which nature has done
