LOOK OUT FOR YOUR CLAIMS.
Wo desire to call the attention of our
readers that in three months from now if the
requisite amount of work has not been done
on claims located prior to the passage of the
act, of May 10th, 1872, those. claims will be
open to re-location in .the same manner as if
no location bad ever been made. We men
tion this at this date, that those of our min
ing readers who have neglected to pake the
necessary expenditures to hold their claims,
may be prepared to do so in time to save
their property from re-location. .Before the
time for this annual expenditure expired,
and before the time was extended last year,
a number of different parties had organized
a regular crusado to take possession of claims
upon which work had not been doneand we
do not doubt but they are still on the look
out for such opportunities. In order that
the matter may be well understood, we will
quote what bears on this subject from Sec-;
r- , ...Jtioa 5tb, of thc.XiwS? Iw6C3ay 10th,
1672: a , .
On eacfciekim located after passage of this
act, and until a patent shall have been issued
therefor, no less than K)0 worth of labor
shall be performed, or improvements made
during each year.
On all claims tecatei prior to the passage
of this act, 10 "worth of labor shall be per
performed or improvements made eadh year
for each one hundred feet in length along the
rein, until a patent shall have been Issued
therefor; but where such claims are held in
common, such expenditure may be made
upon any one claim ; and upon a failure to
comply with these conditions, the claim, or
mine, upon which failure occurred, shall be
open to rc-location in tho same manner as if
no location of the same had ever been made:
Provided, That the original locator, their
heirs, assigns or legal representatives, have
not resumed work upon the claim after such
failure and before such location.
The law then provides that if any one of
the several co-owners fails to contribute bis
proportion of expenditures, upon certain
measures being taked, he can be ousted from
Alter this law was passed it was found best
to extend the time for the first' annual ex
penditures upon claims located prior to the
passage of the act, and an amendment to the
original bill was approved on the first of
iLircb, 1873. extending tho time for the first
annuai expenditures, on claims located prior
to the passage of the act, to the Tenth Day
of June, 1874.
By this it will be 6tcn that if the work is
not done, or begun, on or before the tenth of
June, this year, tho claims wili be open for
rc-location, unless tho original locates have
resumed work on them. This being the c?c
miners had better begin now to look out for
their claims. ban Francisco Mining and

the Overland Monthly gives the following as
the estimated cost of an orange orchard of
ten acres :
Cost of ten acres of improved land, at S30 per
acre, $300; cost of slock, say 50 2-year old trees,
$125; cost of labor, 9300; Incidental expenses,
200; tout, $1,225. Orange trees fifteen years old
will bear f-om $1,000 to 2,000 oranRes, ueturig$20

How to Manage Indians. Our relations with
the Indians are apt to bo varied by the two" very
different conditions of peace and war. In peace
wc deal with the redskins by means ot those mys
teriously contrived and altogether separate speci
mens of the human race known as Indian agents,
who Intend to icako money, and are quite satis
fied that any one else shall take the consequence.
They cheat the Indians, of course, for they ob
tain their places commonly wuh'tbat purpose,
nnd there Is uo restraint upon them. There Is
but one remedy for the Indians, and they know it.
So they kill somebody. As soon as an Indian has
killed anyone in circumstances in which his tribe
have a general share, every other Indian wants to
kill some one too, and an Indian war is the con
requence. Thereupon our dealings with the In
dians fall Into the hands of the army, which
thrashes the savages soundly aud re-establishes
poace, only to open new activities for the Indian
aj;ent, that he may prepare and provoke ucw wars.
Generally, no doubt, the Indian scent ccts rich ;
bat tbe making an agent rich at thu expense of
a war must be costly to the country. It would
be clicapcr to buy out the Indian agents and all
persons who ever wish to be Indian agents witb
a million apiece. In that way or some other they
should tic kept In the calm retirement of their
native wilds, and the management or the Indians
banded over absolutely for peace or war to the
army. There Is more honesty In the army than
In any other branch of the pnbllc land servtce.
Places arc not sought there trom mercenary mo
tives, aad the sense of honor is cultivated. This
does not happen tn the circles from which Indian
aemts are takcR. Indian wars are unnecessary.
and they are aat economical facts. Once put the
Indians altogether in the hands or the soldiers
and tbe war will far less frequent. New

but, we do believe that public money, well
secured, as a loan, ought to be given in aid of
this enterprise. The North has already re
ceived a favor of this kind ; then why not
But, outside, above and independent of
this consideration, is tho fact that the peo
ple of the whole country require a road .trpnt"'
tbe Atlantic to the Pacific, which" can be op-
erated every day ot every year, inrougn
etorm and sunshine, and that no matter what
the building of such a road may cost, it will
soon repay that cost and be a National bless
ing. Such a road would, in case of a war,
with Mexico, enable us to overwhelm that
country in very short time, leaving out of
consideration the curtailment of expenses it
would effect in the way of managing and
supplying Indian tribes. With it, Arizona,
New Mexico and Southern California would
soon utilize their every resource and be the
theatre upon which millions of men and
women would act well their parts in the
play of civilization. Our own Territory
would fill car after car with ores of gold, sil
ver and copper ; thousands of bales of cot
ton, casks of wine, boxes of tropical and
semi-tropical fruits; lumber, wool, hides,
horses, sheep, cattle and much else. Its
building would at once give employment to
thousands of persons and relieve the general
distress existing in the East, from which sec
tion laborers might, should be drawn.
The Omaha Herald, of February 10, says
tbe Chicago Journal attacks the array officers
at Fort Laramie, and calls them a "queer
set" because a detachment of cavalry "fol
lowed the Indians to the. river, but not hav
ing orders refused to cross." It seems that
the redskins had been ongaged in driving off
stock, and that they followed them as far as
they were ordered to by their commanding
officer. Now instead of finding fault with
the officers and men, we think their action
is to be commended. The Fort Fetterman
massacre of nearly one hundred soldiers, oc
curred from the disobedience of orders. The
rdf.n were ordered to proceed no farther than
the hlzWs. but disregarding these orders they
ic'l into an ambush, and were killed almost
instantir by the oainted, yelling savages.
We believe jo class of 3cn strive more earn
estly to do theiV whole duty than the mili
tary on the plains, And they alone can be
judges of the orders tti:ea, given to xuc
troons in a country nueu witu eavuuco, iu
that around Fort Laramie. The histoi7; tti
of nearly every campaign against tho Indians
lias been that disgrace has either directly or
by implication, rested upon thoso who have
vigorously punished tho savages for their
crimes. If the military do they arc cursed,
and if they don't do, they are sneered at by
those who cannot comprehend the situation.
Bo Mr. N. P. Trlst Is dead, and tho Alexandria
postmastcr6hip is vacant. To many of our young
er readers, the mere announcement would proba
bly be devoid of Interest; they might, very likely
be puzzled to tell off-hand who Mr. Trlst was, or
what ho had done to entitle him to even the hum
blo posthumous recognition of a news item. Yet
this old gentleman iu his time was the friend of
Thomas Jefferson, (whose grand-daughter he mar
ried), of James Madison, and of many another
man whose name every Atncrlcau . school-boy
knows by heart ; aud he ucgoliated the treaty of
Guadaloupe Hidalgo a service that deserved a
better reward than It received, ne was for many
years a confidential clerk iu the 6tatc department;

manv citizens of Northern Arizona talk of

Mr. Elkins, delegate from New Mexico,
thinking, of course, that Mr. E. being un

PnOMISINU ROCTE FOR A STAGE LtKE.
Travel from Eastern Nevada to Arizona is
pretty certain to be right lively from this
time on, in view of vhich, some good stage
man ought to "locate" the route and put on
at least a weekly line of stages. To do
this, it might be well to commence by secur
ing the contracts for carrying U. S. mails
over the route, which would, at least, give
tone to the enterprise. Just now, mining,
in all districts along the route looks well and
promising, and, as far-off San Juan is des
tined to have some visitors, a stage line on
this route would send many of said visitors
via Prescott, from which place they would
find easy "sailing" to the new Dorado north

The foregoiug, say the San Diego World, Is
from Governor Saflord's pamphlet, "The Resour
ces of Arizona," published by authority ot the
Legislature ot that Territory. It contains an In
complete statement of the gold and silver yield
of Mohave county alone. Any one who takes the
trouble to reduce 'the foregoing statement to dol
Utvi will observe that it represents the enormous
total of very nearly $22,000,000. These figures
contrast remarkably with the Insignificant treas
ure shipment for Arizona which appears in Wells,
Fargo & Co's last report. That poor exhibit
only 60me $42,000 is explained by the fact that
Wells, Fargo & Co. have no agent in the Interior
of Arizona; and that all shipments, which are
almost entirely of ore In any event, arc made by
other carriers. Tbe most gratifying feature of
Governor Saflord's exhibit Is not the amount of
the ores takcu from the mines in Mohave county,
but the wonderful richness of the rock. Arizona
Is, ludced, a land of fabulous mineral richness.
All that wonderful Territory needs Is that some
of the numerous contlnenul railway All Babas
who arc now flitting athwart the financial horizon,
should come to this marvelous, Imprisoned
wealth and breathe the words, "Open Sesame."
Captain Price tells a good story about tht Pima
Indians and the Arizona Telegraph. The line
runs directly through the villages of the Piroas,

friendly disposed Indians have suffered In their
farming operations for want of rain, and In some
way they became possessed of tbe notion that the

Americans to bring rain, aud watched lis build

I think tbe paint was just the.blue
He put into your eyes. -
I guess the brashes he mast use
Are tbe little gold sunbeams,
A.nd when they're fulling from his hand
We catch their quivering gleams.
O dear! just think how raaopalnts
God'has witb colore bright;
There's gold, aud blue, and scarlet,
And purple, and pure white,
A jreea. aad pink, and Violet; '

God sends his angels rouHd
To scattcrlbrougb tbe earth aod air
Ills blossoms o'er the ground. ,
1 am almost sure the little stars
That glimmer through the night
Arc stones tbe angels play with,
The baby angels bright.
1 guess God takes the buttercups
Aud dips them In the sun.
Then drops them through tbe msadows
When the night is coming on.
I guess, I guess I'm sleepy ;
Please ask the daisies whlto
To pray for inc to Heaven,
For I am tired out, to-night. . ,
Tbe suuny carls are drooping, ,
The baby's day is done;
Her head sinks softly on my arm,
Like a second golden sun.
Htpsotism. Webster defines hypnotism as
"sleep, especially a kind ot somnambulism said
to be produced by means of animal magnetism ;
also a similar condition produced In persons of
very delicate organization, by gazing at a very
bright object, as a metallic ball highly polished
and strongly illuminated." Hypnotism is not
new to the medical profession, but a recent appli
cation of it In California, and detailed by the
Marysvillc Appeal, presents many points of .en
cral.Iutercst: On the 23d ot January some experiments were
tried on some of the patients In the Yuba county
hospital by tbe aid of a horseshoe magnet, the re
sult of which surprised the county physician and
bis assistants wonderfully, and, in fact, more than
It did those who were operated upon. The phy
sicians engaged in these experiments arc desirous
to have as little said as possible as to the.rcsulu',
until eucli time us they are confident that the
effects on the patients arc really permanent As
we have had a peep Into the private note book of
the counly phjoician, we think that the gentle
man will not feel that bis confldencc'has bees
betrayed by what we arc now about to state. The
doctors call this hypnotism, a state into which
the patlcut Is thrown In fact, It Is a state of per
fect quietness ddring wbich time tbe magnet
comes into use. The first case in the note book
is as follows : "Robert VaUco, aged 30, U a enje
of paralysis (or palsy of tbe lower extremities),
was admitted Into tUc Yuba county hospital July
12, 180S, and for nearly two years was confined to
bis bed. but by treatment was enabled to sit up in
a chair and drag bis limbs by the aid of crutches.
but never able to stand alone on his feet or to
stand up and take a step. Ho was partially hyp

two steps. Tbe next day, the 23d, the operation
was continued for ten minutes, when bo rose and
walked four steps, and that, too, with more case
than tbe day before: and, in fact, be has Improved
each day since the first operation, and now walks
around tho ward with case by the aid of a small
cane. Vicn was admitted to the hospital March
12, 18?2, aud Is afllicted with hemiplegia (or pal
sied on one side from tbe head down), and he,
too, was unable to walk or raise bis band to nis

to hold a magnet quite firmly, and In sli opera
tions of ten minutes each be was able to put hi
hand to bis head, cross the palsied leg over tbe
well ouc at the knee, walk and carry bis cane In
the afllicted hand, and mark time like a soldier."

Dawes, of Massachusetts, has been making
exposes wbich show that there is great rot
tenness in Congress and some of tho depart
ments. For instance, a certain U. 8. collect
orship was, by mistake, given to an honest
man, who, upon writing the department that
there was really no necessity for him, be
cause he could not honestly mako 300 per
annum, letting alone his salary, 3,000 per
annum, was immediately removed and re
placed by a political bummer, who under
stood that he was wanted merely to do a lit-
tie political figuring.
The law of libel, as interpreted in Califor
nia, takes hold of and punishes all connected
witb a publication convicted of libel, which
law is wrong and despotic, since printers,
pressmen and others have nothing whatever
to do but do as they are told, and have no
time to examine any article eraanrUing from
editors or publishers.

Wc hope that citizens of Arizona, who
used to talk so much about 'raking sugar
beets and sugar cane, have "not forgotten
their duty and former talk. Sugar'' and mo
lasses are very, very dear here, ami it is to
the interest off the Territory to have these
things produced at home.
