Oho Blanco, December 10.
Editor Citizen: At a special
metuing of the miners of this district,
held on the 12th inst., for the pur
pose of" changing the district bound
uries, the following was unanimously
" Coiamenciug on the santa Cruz
river at the Old Mill in Tubac; thence
to the head of Bear Valley, near the
-western end of the Turn cacorl moun
tains; thence along the divide water-shed
between Bear Valley an'' the
branch of Svcamore Canon, in which
the ranch of" AV. A. Ross is situated,
to Sycamore Canon ; thence down Syc
amore Canon to ihe boundary line be
tween Arizona and Sonora; thence
westerly along the Arizona and So
nora line to the intersection of the
Syrac road; thence northerly along
said road to the intersection ot the
line of the no-called Arivaca grant;
thence northeasterly along said line to
the intersection of the Tucson and
Arivaca road ; thence along said road
to Junction Station; thence southerly
to the place of beginning."
It will be observed that the new
line cuts off that portion covered by
the go-called Anvaca grant, which
was of no particular benefit to the dis
trict, as no mines were located thoreon,
and now the district is clear of any
conflict with said grant.
I trust that no one will be deceived
hereafter by the idea that mines in
Oro Blanco District are covered by
a grant. Justice.

The sad news was received in this
city on Saturday night of the death of
Mrs. Joan P. Clum. at TomDstone.
The news was received with unfeigned
regret in this city, where the lady for

versally esteemed for her qualities of
head and heart. Her immediate rela

most profound sadness Mrs. Clum's
untimely death; her circle of warm

of all go out to the bereaved husband
in this hour of his great aflhction.

a-days to make an almost fairy scene
of' varied beauty with the material at
hand in a first-class fancy goods store.
This is exemplified in a high degree
at the Pioneer News Depot. Mr.
Mansfield lias fairly outdone himself
in his Christmas display, and the sole
wonder is how he accomplished It.
The walls, the floor, the roof, are liter
ally hid from view under a mass of
beautiful things, and the selection of
a Christmas present, ordinarily' con
sidered a work of no trilling difficulty,
is here rendered easy by the vast array
of suitable, costly and useful articles.
The newspaper and periodical depart
ment so complete as of itself to form
usually the main attraction for the
merrie Christmas time takes a "back
seat," and the numerous articles
intended to delight the hearts of so
many on the happiest day in the year,
play the prominent parts. Even a
condensed enumeration of the goods

ties, and the most wonderfully ingen
ious savings banks ever seen or heard
of in childhood's realm. The fancy
goods department is also especially
complete, so that the young man may
have no need to go further for a pres
ent for his sweetheart, and the young
lady mav reciprocate with a box of

reporter found to have so delicious a
flavor. Altogether the smiling pro

complete and varied stock.

Wo have received inquiries from
several sources as to the correctness
of the stament made on Saturday that
assessment work ou all mining claims
located iu 1879 must, in order to hold
the same, bo done this year, irrespect
ive of any amount of work done in
1879. In answer to such inquiries we
would state that such is the law. Sec
tion 2 of the Act approved January
22, 1S80. reads as follows: "That
dection 2324 of the Revised Statutes
of the United States be amended by
adding the following words: 'Pro
vided, That the period tcithin tthieh
the work required to be done annually
on all unpatented mineral claims sltall
commence on the first day of January
succetling the date of location of such
claim, and this section shall apply to
all claims located since the 10th day of
Mav, A. D. 1872.' '
While the intention of the framcrs
of the law is believed to have been
that all work done on a claim between
the time of location and the !10th day
of December of the year next succeed
ing the one in which the location was
made should be counted as part of the
necessary assessment work, yet the
law states specifically enough (and
has been so interpreted by Commis
sioner Williamson) that the assess
ment work shall be done during the
calendar year commencing on the first
day of January next succeeding the
date of location. It is thought that
many claim-owners who honestly be
lieo they have done the necessary
amount of assessment work (the same
having been done in 1879; wi.l suffer
by the above interpretation of the law,
and we caution all who are laboring
under such mistake to take the neces
sary precautions to guard against such
The Lone Palm District.
Mr. J. M. Bauutan, of the firm of
Bauman & Thomas, the well-known
commission merchants of Harshaw,
informs us that several very fine strikes
have recently been made in the Lone
Palm District, a new and compara
tively unknown camp, about nine
miles from Harshaw, on the western
slope of the Patagonia mountains, and
the District is bound to come into
prominence some day in the future.
Prospecting work is being conducted
vigorously on several claims with ex
cellent results. The Lone Palm is an
exceptionally fine showing, belonging
to lucson nrriies, and .nr. liauman
had just received an assay certificate
from the croppmgs of a copper claim
belonging to himself and Mr. Thomas.
It shows 27 per cent., and is in the
best possible form for reduction. The
vein shows four leet wide on the sur
face. We hope it will prove a bon
anza to the owners certainly no
young men iu Arizona deserve better
The National Debt.
Charles D. McGutlev, of Chatta
nooga, has been endeavoring " to get
some idea "of the magnitude of the
national debt at the close ol the war
He has made the calculation that if
four men were to sit down to pay the
interest, aud count a silver dollar a
second, and work every second in the
year, they could not keep down the
interest on the original debt; and if
another should sit down at two years
of age to count the principal at the
same rate, he would oe over iu years
old before he counted the last dollar,
interest on the principal having ceased
from the first .moment. The pile of
silver dollars, moreover, which he
would make in counting that pnnci
pal would be four feet square and fif
teen times as high as .Lookout -Mountain
(1.C00 feet above Chattanooga);
and if the silver wero conveyed in a
continuous wagon tram, each wagon
carrying a ton, and each wagon and
team occupying thirty-five feet, the
train would stretch from Chattanooga
The local municipal election grows
gradually more interesting. A good
many want to see Col. J. H. Toole
back in the .Mayors scat, and although
the ex-Mayor is averse to the position,
it is believed that he will serve if
elected. Certain it is that if he will
run he will be elected, and it is as cer
tain that he will again make one of
the best, if not the best, Mayors that
Tucson ever had.
For the City Council, few names
are yet announced. A number of cit
izens have asked Mr. Alex. Levin to
be candidate for re-election, and he
will run. There is no doubt of his
election, and he is most emphatically
a good man for the position. We
have no more enterprising or public-
spirited men than Alexander Levin,
aud we need him in the Council.

There is nothing so encouraging to
the proprietor of a great modern jour
nal as to be able to make improve
ments on his organ. Artemus Ward
tells a good story about a visit he made
to the sanctum of the Bungtown Bu
gle, and the interesting interview he
had with the editor. The editor was
preparing his leading editorial which
he read over to Artemus. It was to
tho effect that ' we have just had
some extensive repairs made on our
sink. A new bottom has been placed
in it at an immense expense, in which
two holes have been bored, through
which the water passes into the en
tirely new bucket below. What has
the hell-honnd of the Gazette to say
to this? We shall continue to make
improvements as great and asexhaust

Tho Love of tlio Czar.
The news received from St. Peters
burg continues to be very alarming
respecting the Emperor. He is not
only distracted by the terrors ol the
Nihilists, but by the opposition of his
family to his morganatic marriage
with the Princess Dolgorouki. Such
an act on the part of tho Czar, his son
considers, A'ill desiroy the attributes
associated with the head of the
Church of Holy Russia. The Prin
cess desires to become an honest wo
mau as rapidly as possible, knowing
there's many a slip 'twlxt the cup and
the lip. All lier pecuniary fortune is
invested in French financial schemes.
Every million of roubles she can ob
tain "is at once forwarded to Paris.
Yet when she first made the acquain
tance of His Majesty, and won his
heart, she was so poor as not to be
able to pay ten roubles for a silver
ring on her finger. It was the de
ceased Empress who selected the
Princess as one of her ladies in wait
ing, and fitted her out in purple and
gold, and as a result ol her kindness
ihe rival stole the husband's heart
from that first presentation. The late
Empress had jewels valued at twenty
one million francs; tho Czar has pre
sented some, of a valuable and histor
ical character, to the Czarina, and
next to the Duchess of Edinburg, but
his princess-mistress has received not
only the lion's share, but the pret
tiest of the gems. The Princess has
three children by the Czar, and anoth
er may soon be expected.
A Touching Story.
One rarely meets a bit of more
touching romance than is found In
the following ftory, that comes from
Wales: " Years ago some Welsh
miners in exploring nn old pit that
had long been closed, found the body
of a young man dressed in a fashion
long out of date. The peculiar action
of the air oi the mine had been such
as to preserve the body so perfectly
that it appeared asleep rather than
dead. The miners were puzzled at
this circumstance; no one in the dis
trict had been missed within their re
membrance, and at last it was re
solved to bring .the oldest inhabitant
an old lady past her eightieth year,
who had lived single m the village
the whole of her life. On being
brought into the presence of the body
a Mrange scene occurred; the old lady
fell on the corpse, kissed and ad
dressed it by every term of loving en
dearment, couched in the language of
a bygone generation. He was" her
only love; she waited for him during
her long life; she knew that he had
not forsaken her. The old woman
nnd the young man had been be
trothed sixty years before. The lover
had disappeared mysteriously, and
she had kept faithful during that long
interval. Time had stood still with
the dead man, but had left its mark
on the living woman. The miners
who were present were a rough set,
but very gently with tearful eyes they
remoyed the old lady to her house,
and the same night her faithful spirit
rejoined that of her long-lost lover."

Some time since the New York

I ti,e mining industry m these lmoor-
tant sections. Mr. White's letters at
i traded wide-spread attention, as they
well might, being singuiarly able and
' concise treatises on what fell under
hit observation. Unfortunately for
', Arizona, before reaching this Terri
tory Mr. White severed his connec
tion' with the Tribune to assume
char'c of the Providence Press. In
one of his later letters from New Mex
ico, he made the following sensible
remarks in relation to the pernicious
cffecU of the claims to old Mexican
grants, and advocates the same action
by Congress as urged by the Citizen
"The doubt and uncertainty that
han"s over the title of so much of the
lautTonhi3 Territory is one of the
"Teatcst hindrances to the develop,
ment of its mineral resources. Ne
man who goes into the mountains
prospecting can feel any confidence
in his ability to obtain a title to a
mine which lie may discover. About
the time he strikes rich ore, it is more
than likely that some man will come
along with the papers of a forgotten
llTlfHIl llkliU UtaOb. u. ....
m tlir mine which lie Had no
part in discovering, and never would
have found himself. The great mines
of this country have, almost without
exception, been discovered by poor
people, and their stimulus has been
the hope of becoming suddenly rich.
If they are in danger of losing the
great prize, after it is within their
grasp, as they arc in many parts of
New Mexico, they will not endure
the privations and hardships of a pros
" My conclusions are:
"First That it will be criminal
neglect on the part of Congress if it
allows the coming winter to pass with
out providing for tlte most speedy ad
judication of the titles to all Mexican
land grants. The valid ones ought to bo
immediately confirmed, their boun
daries definitely fixed and patents is
sued for them, conveying to their
owners just what the Mexican Govern
ment intended to convey nnd no more.
The remainder of the Territory ought
to come as soon as possible under the
operation of the public land laws of
the United State.
Second 1 hat investments in
unconfirmed land grants arc about
as hazardous as any that can be
" At Tombstone, Arizona, it is re

5000 miners at present, and work for

living in California had better keep

Ridiculous statements like the above
would do no harm were all people
gifted with the (acuity of keen obser
servation and a habit of careful invos
tigniiou. But unfortunately they are
not. The people are not few on whom
a paragraph like the above would
have the effect of changing a well-sct-tled
determination of visiting Tomb
stone. The Press, which is a very
clever, honorable little newspaper,
should have known better than to
make such a statement. If its editor
reads his Arizona exchanges he must
know that the population of Tomb
stone, all told, Is hardly 5000, nnd it
certainly could not all be comDOsud of
miners. Ho should also know that
nearly a score of mines, to say nothing
of prospects, are hard at work either
taking out ore for the ten stamp
mills which will soon be working, or
preparing to do so by development
work. It is more than possible it is
certain that in Tombstone a compar
atively large number of men are out
ol employment, but we assure the
Press that the number is no great
er than in any new town of Tomb
stone's size, and we have yet to hear
of an authenticated case of destitution
from our neighbor city.
The press of New Mexico have
formed nn Editorial Association, and
will hayo a geueral conference about
the first of next month to complete
their organization. Wouldn't it be a
good idea for the press gang of Ar
izona to form a similar organization?
We believe it would be a benefit to
the press of the Territory financially,
aud every ofher way. What say our
esteemed Territorial contemporaries?
What has Arizona done that the
Democrat should spring this on the
country? These editorial associations
are very funny outfits. They nev
er represent the better class of jour
nals in nny State. They consist
principally of an annual excursion,
tree rides, free grub, free drinks, free
puffs in return therefor, nnd brief in
lerspersions ol ridiculous deliberation
which invariably amounts to naught.
Few editors or proprietors of busy
newspapers can spare the time for
such jaunts, nnd the representation of
the journal is relegated to some ac
commodating friend who is willing to
scoop in the free-lunch racket. Then
the "editors" go homo to return to
their real business in life, which is
larely in any degree connected with
the newspaper which they " repre
sented." No, we don't want any "ed

like organizations in thirty-eight States

A I.ucly Soldier.
Ezelot, the French soldier who
found tho 26,000 which M. Pages
lost in the Northern Railway 'station
in Paris, has communicated to the
Courier dc 1'Aii.ne the particulars at
tendant on his good fortune. They
aro very interesting, and show how
some men .re born to fortune, some
achieve fortune, and some have for
tune thrust upon them. Ezelot was
walking through the railway station
with two comrades, when they noticed
on the floor a packet wrapped in n
newspaper. They kicked it along be
fore them for some distance, and when
Ezelot was getting into the train, go
ing home on short leave, one of his
comrades pickine up the packet,
thrust it into the canvas forage bag
slung at his side, Ezelot going on h is
way without having perceived the lit
Arrived at Ncuilly, where his par
ents live, his mother, emptying the
forage bag, discovered the bundle,
and thinking it was a packet of old
newspapers, put it on a table in the
kitchen. There it remained four or
five days, till a married eister, calling
in and seeing the packet, was moved
by an unwonted curiosity. Opening
it she discovered documents rcpre
senting the JE2G.000, the loss of which
M. Pages bad advertised throughout
Europe. The European papers aro
not, however, read at Neuilly, where
the Courier "c l'Aisne doubtless has it
all its own way. The soldier and his
parents, not knowing what else to do,
followpd the provincial Frenchman's
instinct and had recourse to the maire.
That functionary, communicating with
Paris, speedily brought down M.
Pages, who gratefully paying the
promised reward of 1000 went off
with his oddly recovered treasure.
It would be an interesting snpplement
to the narrative if we conld record the
feelings of the soldier who thrust the
packet upon Ezelot when he hcnrtl the
sequel to thejittle joke.

Tlio Reason Why.
The avidity with which San Fran
cisco seize upon items like the an
nexed is perhaps one reason why San
Francisco is losing her grip on the
trade of a Territory which we assert,
without fear of successful denial, is
one of the most prosperous sections of
the United fatates to-day. If the
editor of the paper which published
this mess of lies had applied a little
intelligence to the matter, he rvould
have known that such a statement is
as near the truth as the average Bodie
Ito gets. We do not believe there are
even one thousand men out of em
ployment in Arizona that is, men
who would work if they could get it.
Here is the " Bodie man's " statement:
" A Bodle man, just returned from
a visit of inspection to Arizona, thus
summarizes affairs in the Territory:
Thousands of men are broke, with no
prospects for work. Business of all
kinds i3 generally overdone. Arizona
is about three years ahead of its pop
ulation. At the expiration ot that
time it may be a good country to lo
cate in, but at present the great mass
will do well to give it r wide berth.
Of all the old-timers I have met. not
one but wanted to get back. They
are very sick of the country.' '

As they reached the beach Mr.
Spoopendyke left his wife nnd boldly
strode into tho surf. A wave broke
over him, filling his eyes, nose, ears
and mouth, and then be strode out.
"What arc you staudin'r there for,

take yourself for a lighthouse? Did

boldly into the sea again. .Another
wave caught him and landed him
high and dripping on the beach.
' Why didn'tye come when I called

legs of your pants for? They ain't

go in, and yon follow me when I
beckon to you. Watch me now."
Mr. Spookendyke plunged in and
swashed around a few minutes in safe

him and rolled him over, and pumped
itself into his stomach, drew him
under, whirled him around, and final

or else you go home."
Mr. Spoopendyke plunged into the
surf, but as he came up he missed the
rope. For a second or two he sprawled
around, aud then began to yell. Mrs.
Spoopendyke eyed him for a moment,
and then her fears for hioi overcame
her fears for herself, and with a yell

ridiculously funny to sit and read the
various papers talk about attacks by
the -Mexicans upon the Americans
There arc no more peaceable and law-
