THE MEXICAN TRADE.
Hon. Warren P. Sittoa. U. & Consul
at Mata moras, was recently interviewed
in relation to the proposed commercial
treaty i with Mexico. He regards the
treatv as an important one for the trade
of this eountry and gives figures which
possess great interest and importance.
From his statements it appears that
the exports from the United States to
Mexioo have increased from leas than
half a million dollars in value in 1S77 to
thirteen millions in 1882. The railways
now built or under construction will
give an impetus to commerce and under
the proposed treaty our neighboring re¬
public will draw very largely upon our
surplus resources to the practical exclu¬
sion of the trade fioui other countries.
The silent commercial revolution in
Mexico demands a market that can be
bjieedily aud cheaply reached by menus
of direct aud permanent lineu ot carri¬
age, and it looks to this country for
doijr bmuuea taUaaaey thai sjl resalt
in the mutual prosperity of both coun¬
Already does Mexioo import from the
United States double the amount re¬
ceived from Greftt Britain, and exports
proportionate amount. In the list of
the latter are silver, lead, raw jute, leaf
tobacco and cigars, coffee, hides, cotton,
etc., while she receives from the United
States manufactures oi iron and steel,
cotton goods, wooden ware, sewing ma-
ehiues, rail way cars, corn, oils, live stork,
stationery, quicksilver, glass ware, agri¬
cultural implements, etc
The amount ot American capital now
invested in the development of the vari¬
ous resources of Mexico, is estimated at
from twenty-thru to thirty millions of
dollars, chiefly employed in merchan¬
dising, most of which has been invested
in the last two or three year?.
Mr. Sutton's statement are full of
interest to onr people, and furnishes
valuable data upon which to calculate
the great reciprocal benefits that will ae
erne from a judicious commercial treaty
with our neighbors to the southward.
Anothek Colorado mining king has
gained the object of his ambition. Ex-
Governor Talxor was given the short
term in the Senate. He will be Senator
Talior boreafter, though he will hardly
have time to get hit seat warm before
Judge Bowen will claim it. Colorado
was the Centennial State, admitted into
the Union in 1S7C, yet lias bad more
Senators than any other State in the
same length of time. Its representa¬
tives have beeu Jerome B. Chaffee. N.
P. Hill, H. M. Teller, Chilcott, A. W.
Tabor and Senator el out T. M. Bowen.
That is a pretty long list for so young a
State. They are all men of ability and
large wealth, tit representatives of the
great mining State.
Maxy of our people think that a coun¬
ty hospital should be provided. Tney
think that the care of indigent sick
would be cheekier it the county owned a
hospital instead of under the present
method of having them cared for by the
Sisters. They are anxious that the Leg¬
islature should make some provision to
have a hospital biiilt bore entirely un¬
der the control of the county.

The msmbers of the Legislature from

articles of incorporation make its
principal place of business iu the Terri¬
tory and a majority of its board of
directors must always be residents ot
the Territory. This would build up the
Territory and insure the operation of
the road in the interests ot our people.
While the encouragement to be granted
this road is purely local, its benefits will
be .general as it wdt stimulate other
enterprises ot a similar naturo iu other
parts of the Territory.
Matters are so arranged that the
work will be commenced as soon as the
bill passes the Legiplstnre. We there¬

A few days ago Alonzo Lynch was

ties were o good social position, and
the wedding was largely attended by
the best people. As the happy couple
were abont to board the nortueru train
on their wedding tour they were ar¬
rested by a detective on the charge of
stealing 1,000 from .Tamen Wright, an
uncle ot the bride. Their friends were
indignant at the arrest, pronouncing it
an outrage; but the officers insisted that
thev knew wliat they were about. They
were taken to the hotel parlor, aud the
detective insisted on search rug them.
This was done, but no money was found
aud was about to release them, when a
lady friend present, confident ot the
bride's innocence, suggested sarcasti¬

officer, whereupon the bride turned pale
and said: "Uu,uon t! I'lease don t! 1

after some introductory civilibes, Mr.
Lincoln ran his eye curiously over his

look and accent it would be hard to di-

the advantage over me in height; you
are a taller man than I am."
"I guess not, Mr. President." replied
the visitor, with the self-abnegating air

February 20, 1S5S, and if joucaroto
hear the story I will tell it to you.
The old Pacific Hotel iu this city was
opened fur ths reception of guests on
Seventh and Popular streets on Jnae
2S, K7. The. hotel was three stones
high, the fust story being occupied oy
stores, and it was a very good hotel for
these ilavs. i was 2o years old nt the
time, and after berying nwbilo as clerk
changed for tbe position of head porter.
The house had uwen opened less than a
year, when on February 2W, 1S0S, it was
swept by such a fatal lire as this city
has never seen before or since. That
night thirty occupants of the house
nerished iu tho llames. and it was by
the merest ensure thlt I waa not in¬
cluded in the number. I had given up
my room for that night, and was sleep¬
ing with eight others, mostly railroad
men. in tbe same room ou the third
Hoor ot the house. About 2 o'clock in
tbe morning I was awakened by tho
fierce crackling ot the ilames, and was
conscious of a sheet of tire rolling
through the chamber in which we
were slteniug. I rolled out ou tho
Hoor and crawled along on my
bauds ami knees nmler tho flames,
which filled oil the upper iKirt
of the rcoin. The stench from
the roasting bodies ot my d-nd conipan
ions was fearful, and I expected to meet
tbe same fate. Although oiully scorched
1 kept my presence of mind and crawled
out of the room, through the hall to the
stairway leading to the second floor. On
attempting to descend them I fell
through the fire which boil destroyed
them, settuig my shirt on tire nnd strik¬
ing the banisters leading from tbe first
to tbe vecond story, and breaking two
libs. From this place I gained the
street, and was saved. Of tbe other
eight men iu the room not one escaped.
Amon the dead was .Mr. Uerry, a nowv
paier man. In making my escape my
hair was singed off my head, when it
L'tew out again it was as white as snow.
The terrible experience ot that night
whitened it eomwetely, and althongh
succeeding growths have bad some dark
mingled with them, my head is still vory
lute, as you see. A long investigation
was conducted after Uh fire, but its
cause was ueverfully explained. It was
proved that the watchman, who perished
in the flames, was drunk tnat night, and
although some thought the fire was in¬
cendiary, I always charged it to some
swinging lamps iu the back part ot tne
house. Tbe n'ght was bitter cold and
the wind blew fiercely. The Fire De¬
partment, which had recently been or¬
ganized, was hindered by frozen fire¬
plugs. From that day to this I have,
never slept iu a room that was not in
easy jumping distance to the ground.

and stapled in many hotels. W houever

portunity to judge of what the poor peo¬
ple in the Milwaukee fire suffered and 1

Tccsox, Jan. 30, 1SS8L
Editor Citizen: In reply to Hon. A.
Y. Lomeli, Consul, in regard to steek
stealing, I would say that I cannot see
that any part ot my letter to the OrriBmf
of January 20th was an insult to
honest, Uw abiding Mexican Ottawa.
I gave no word of censure to tho good
people, bat I did condemn the thieves
and avil doers.
I did not state that four-fifths ot the
thieves wero from Sonora, but I did
state that three-fifths were, ami that
one-fifth mors rsnegaded to Sonora.
Here let mo refsr to Oro Bmaeo dis¬
trict, 09 that has been mentioned before.
Careful inquiry shows that out of
So.Si'i stolen from that district, S5.1S5
have been tracked direct into Sonora.
and the balance were never found by
the owners on this side of the Mee:
this shows a greater percentage than t
stated by far.
I am not familiar with the thieves'
rendezvous, but seme of the place are
Sarac, Sombrstillo Camp, San Maignei
nd camps at different points adjaveM
to tho line. Some of the thieves are
known by the following names: Juan
Silvas, Antonio Bustamete and his
brother, Anselcio Bastamente, Thomas
I.edondo, IPreeopio,; Kocamonti.ete.
I am not familiar v.rh Mte Menenr
Iavrs. but I am told that they are very
good, of which I have no doubt; btit
certainly I can bring proof that stock
has been sold iu Sonora that was stolen
in Arizona, and slues stolen in fionora
tli-1 was sold in Arizona.
First case in point is two mare
stolen Messrs. Hewitt & Bartlott and
tukeu to Sonora. Some time after Mr.
Hewitt, saw a man driving one of tbe
mares in Tucson ami claimed tho nnt.
the party,) I think his name was Ash-
ton who had tho mare, claimed he
lx night her in Altar, Sonora, and pro-
luee.l a bill of sale from Mr. bjsMlaute,
of Altar. Escalante represented to Ash-
ton, iso he stated I that he raised tne
mare from a colt although tho brand of
II. !. was ou tbe mare, Hewitt Sc Bar¬
rett's brand. A suit was finally tried
before Justice Osborn, of Tucson, be¬
tween Messrs. H. .t B. and Ashtoo
about this mare, resulting iu the nuwe
lieing turned over to the proper owners
Hewitt and Bartlett. The Justice's
record can be referred to as to the fact.
In 1KS2 MHrs. Hewitt ,fc Bartlett
lost fonr mnret. aud hones and about
three months after were informed by
Mr. Harnett n personal friend who own,
a stock ranch abont twelve miles from
baric, that he had detained one raero
and two horses with their brand on.
Mr. Bartlett went to Mr. BarnettV
ranch and found three of the fear
stolen and also found that they bed
been rebranded and vented while in
Sonora. He brought them back ami the
can be seen by any one on their range..
At another time in 12 Mr. Bartlett
discovered that a horse had been atetrn
in midday in sight of and close by Oro
Blanco town. He started after the
thieves and caught one near Tubutass.
Sonora, and turned him over to the
Justice, while he and tbe man with him
pressed forward atter the other thief
ahead with one of their horses. He
failed to overtake the other thief bit
recovered the horse, he then returned to
Tnbutama and found the .1 untie bad
let tlie other thief go, stating be wan
hungry and let him go to get something

1 might enumerate instances tuat
would fill a small volume if 1 bad the
time to gather the facts, but my time is
too limited outside of my buriuess to
uudertake the task, although I sbowld
like to do so.
As to owners being notified, 1 have
yet to hear of any one in Arizona lioing
notified of his or her stock being in So¬
nora, unless it was through a friend.
I nra sure if the Hon. A. V. Loraeti
will take the time to visit and converse
with good citizens on both sides of the
liorder, he will receive a great deal of
valuable information iu regard to this
subject, of which he must certainly be
unaware. I do not ask him to take wy

not determine unless theohnnces fordo¬

case. Certainly well known thieves
stalk around with impunity iu Sonora.
Tbe reason may be that what good law
abiding people that happen to be aware
of the fact, dare not say anything for
fear of lisiag their own stock.
I think it w of as much interest t So¬
nora to aid in putting a stop to thm
stealing as Arizona, and that there
should be a general good will on the
part of each to cooperate instead of
questioning whether Senora or Arizene
contained tbe most of tho criminals. If
the rendezvous of thieves were on this
side I would call attention in a way to
capture them whenever I knew of seen
