TEC 7EUUPED UP CLAW ON A PORTION Or
In yesterday's Citizen SnrTeyor Gen¬
eral Bobbins pave notico to the peoplr
of Tneson that a document purporting to
be a Spanish or Mexican grant covering
a portion of tliis city had been filed
in bis office and inviting their
inspection. Upon the genuineness of this
grant the Surveyor General will be
called upon to pass, also if pronounced
genuine to determine from the imper¬
fect description the land it coven.
The CniJEX elsewhere in this ireue pub¬
lishes the document in Spanish also
translation made by Mr. Hopkins, the
erudite translator of the Surveyor's of¬
fice, together with the laws authorizing
the commandants of presidios to make
grants. We have sought to lay before
our readers all the obtainable data in
relation to this claim trumped up as we
believe to cloud the title to a portion of
our city and extort money from the
rightful ownsrs. the present occupants.
The f ronnJs udou which thin claim
uust be met are that it is not genuine
and that the description to the land is
so imperfect that it is impossible to es¬
tablish the lioundtriea of the claim at
this late date.
The presumption must be against tho
validity of the grant. The manufacture
ot these ancient grants has become quito
cornmtmand the policy should b against
recognizing those which are brought for¬
ward to cloud the title of property which
has been held undisputed for years.
Congress lias shown no great haste in
confirming grants even when their valid
ity has been certified to by tht. Survey¬
or General. Several in this Territory
have been xamined and approved, -but
none have as yet been confirmed by
Congress. In fact, the ablest lawyer in
the Senate, Mr. Edmunds, lias intro¬
duced a bill to refer all these matters to
the courts. So it is doubtful if any
of the grants now pending before Con¬
gress will be acted on.
Congress should, however, provide
socio limitation to the presentation of
claims of this character. As the years
pass, thj opportunity for frauds with¬
out detection increases. When every¬
thing depends upon documentary evi¬
dence, it is more oasily manufactured
than where there is living testimony at
hand to disprove them.
This is undoubtedly put oit as a feel
er to test the question of whether they
cau make the grant hold or not.
JJontNothe year 1SS2, according to
the record kept by the underwriters,
S904!fj0,00i) of property was destroyed
by U-e in the United States and Canada
During the year, 1309 fires are recorded
where the loss was from S10.000 to
SH0O0; 214 when the loss was from
50.000 to 5100,000; 101 fr m SI 00,00 to
8200,000: 35 from 520-1,000 to 5000,000
nnd 10 where property to the valne of
$500,000 and upward was destroyed.
This is a largo amount of property to bo
wiped out by fire in a single j ear in
which there wss uo ono extensive' and
disastrous conflagration. In view of
the tens ot thousands of fires and the
large destruction of insured property,
no wonder that the year 1SS2 was a
disastrous one for fir- .insurance com
panics, and that several reliable cum
panies have closed up their business.
There are years in which the losses by
fire aro unusually large; still it must le
apparent that the loss of average years
is mainly due to carelessness either in
the occupants or the contractors of
buildings. Accidents will happen and
losses by fir will continue, but there
cau be no doubt that the losses would
amount to but a fraction of the
present astounding aggregate, if com
mou watchfulness were exercised.
Auizona is attracting more attention
than any other mineral region in the
United States. There are many people
from the Eaet now visiting the various
mining camps in quest of properties.
They all speak well nt the prospects of
the country. The great drawback to
our mining interest is the want of
development. Most partkii desire to
find mine possessing measurable value,
not mere prospects and these are difS
cult to find. If prospectors instead of
trying to hold onto a great number of
claims would select a few of the more
promising ami bend their energies to
developing them they would find it
more to their profit and inueh more to
the advantage of Hie Territory. On
good mine will bring more than forty
prospects and it will cost no more to
make it than to kep up the annual
assessment nork ou tho number
claims held by the ordinary prospector.
