The true inwardness of the trouble
between the Santa Fe company and the
13 is l e company is said to be as follows:
The Santa Fe had the Bisbee contract
to deliver the Bisbee copper from Fair-
bank to New York. The contract ran
out and the Santa Fe people were slow
in renewing it and the Southern Facihe
got in ahead with a contract. Then
the Bisbee people put on tams
between their road and the Southern
Pacific. It is further said that the
proposed new railroad from Fairbank to
Benson would cost $200,000. One item
would be $ 15,000 for a bridge over the
San Pedro. The Citizen's informant
was talking with Superintendent Ben
Williams a day or two ago, who said
the new road would be built.

new baler going yesterday and prt-sed
eleven tons and four hundred poundp.
using a single team. They expect to bale
300 tons of the hay. with the bigb
prices ruling in California the hay will
bring good figures here, though it is not
likely to be shipped. The home market
demand for hay is yet in excess of the
supply, and will be from the present
outlook for the next two or three yearp.

Clarisse Lovejoy is a comely lady who
bas a natural infatuation for a climated
gentleman by the numerous name of
Smith, Chas. Smith. From all accounts
her affection ia reiipro ated. The link
that blinds theee loving souls was rude
ly disturbed Wednesday evening when
the weaker part of the household (made
stronger by the addition of two big
pistols) started in to separate herself
from her lover by plowing his frame
with bullets. The said Chas. Smith, not
caring to pose as a ,dying lover," aross
in his swiftness and poured into the
ears of Deputy Sheriff Cohenour, ac
companied by Prof. Hiemrod as a dep
uty, advanced to the building occupied
by the 6corned woman and proceeded to
soothe her in the name of the law. The
terrors of the law had no effect on poor
Clarisse as the tidal wave or spirits she
had swallowed had overflowed and
washed away her reason. Two pistols
being part of the furniture in the Smith
Luvej y housebood, it was nothing
more than natural that the excited wo
man should draw them and bang away
tsometbiog or nothing, it mattered
little to her. Heimrod being a man of
peace, casae iu for a large share of the
bullets, and the way be dodged this
way and the other, was the revelation
to those who haJ judged his swift hot
day. Thanks to a poor eightei barrel
and the unsteady eye of the sbootest no
one was struck by the shower of lead,
and Clarisse, now that she is sober, can
thank her lucky stars tiat such is the
case. It was necetsry for. Deputy
Cohenour to tenderly ttrske her with
the silent part of his pistol before she
would consent to ev n recognize the
majesty of the law. As the gun came in
contact with her head it exploded, and
it was thought for a moment that the
poor girl had accidentlly paid a life's
penalty for her outbreak. No one feels
like bounding Mite. Lovejoy into
months of confinement foroce bad

see ber soon restored to the full privil

NAMING HIS BABIES.
How Agent Berger . Supplied the
Papagoea with Names.
When tbe Papago Indians of tbe San
Xavier reservation were granted land in
severalty,' four years ego, they had to be
given a supply of names.
It is popularly supposed that Indian
names are very poetical affairs, some
thing like Flaming Cloud or Winged
Feet, aud pronounced with words with
a hypbern for every syllable. Such is
not the case in real li e.
They are great big babies, the Papa
goes babies without a name in many
cases. Many of the big f irmers asked
by Agent Berger as to what was the
came of their respective squaws would
grin in a silly way, and thake their
beads. They didu't know. How they
can communicate without names in the
families is a my.tery, but tbe Papagos
ate not very loquations anyway.
Others of the Indians had one name,
always of Spanish, as Juan or J. aquin
or Miguel, but invariably they had no
So the agent set about naming his
babies. There were 300 of them. Those
that bad one name were given a sur
name; and those that bad none got
two names. They were generally given
Spanish names, being that to which
they were most used. In a few cases
English names were used. So far as
posfaible, tbe same fa ml es got the same
surname. It was all the same to the
Indians. They grinned but did not
remember their new designations. The
names are all carefully recoreded in a
register, and now should a San Xavier
Papago wait to know his surcams he
would have to gc to the agent, who
would consult the book.

brincra out in a verv direct way the
truth about tbe mythical Peraltareiavis
grant, which has long been tbe cause
of annoyance to the Territory and of
personal loss to oitizens and strangers.
The man ia Charles Noyes of Fair
bank, A. T. He is a Democrat. Some
time ago the San Francisco newspaper
which has been his rock ot faith printed
along article about the ,Barony"of
Arizona as the Peraltareavis grunt is
en lied by the people interested in it.
f tatin that the Court of Private Land
Claims sitting :n Santa Fe, N. M., had
confirmed tbe title of J. A. Peraltarea
vis the the alleged grant, and had defin
ed its boundaries.
Mr. Noyes believed this statement,
and backed up his belief with com
Ihree of his frirnds, Republicans, laugh
ed at bim, and he promptly bet a nve
bat with ot them. Then he wrote to
the editor of the newspaper. The
reo'v was bierf. It said :
Ml communicated with Santa Fe.N. M.
and am informed by our correspondent
there that tbe Court of Private Claims
bas fixed tbe boundaries of the Peral
tareavis claim. Possibly it would be well
for you to seek information io Santa Fe
before settling anyjmore beta no the
Mr. Noyes took this advice, and wrote
to the Dm tea states Attorney for tbe
court in ques ion at Santa Fe, inclosing
the editor's letter. Ihe reply, dated
April 25 was as follow.
My Dear Sib: I am in receipt of your
letter purposing to be from a San Fran
cisco newspaper, in reference to tbe
status of tne Peraltareavis claim, which
has teen referred to me by you. Re
plying to your inquiry, endorsed there
on, I ttate that the court of private land
claims has not fixed the boundaries of
this claim, Bor has it fixed its status in
any way. It has taken no action ex
cept ta grant tbe plaintiffs in tha case
eave to amend their petition by inter
daeation and ics'ruction to the clerk to
make interlineations on the copy filed
ia his office."
The court cf private land claims is
not authorized under the law to adjudge
the validity of the grant, nor to fix the
boundaries until th- ca6e is presented
for trial, atd I am prohibited by law
frora confessing judgment either as to
the validity cf the grant or extent of its
II ving charge of th's case on behalf
of the U sited States, I think I under-
tand the 6tatus of it, so far as this
court is concerned, quite as well as the
reporter of tbe paper in question. 1
hope this answer will suffice for your
inquiry. I herewith return your letter
referred to me. Yours very truly.
Matt G. Reynolds, U. S. Attorney.

Mammoth, May 12, 1891.
Editor Citizen: Up to a few months
ago life in this region was so uneventful
that any attempt at correspondence with
a newspaper has been very d iscou rage-
But times have changed; quiet and
inertia have retired; and enterpise and
industry are taking their place. There
is no longer any occasional communica
tion between us mountainers and the
great metropolis of Arizona, but a daily
brisk going to and from. Huge freight
wagons are now strung along the once
dreary desert roads from Tucson to this
place. The lively soprano of the San
Pedro has a full band bass accompani
ment in the roar of the huge Mammoth
fifty stamp mill.
All this has been the work of a few
months past and to what extent of
development we shall bave arrived at a
year hence, when, as surtJy aa tne sun
shall rise and set, iioh gold-bearing
ledges now wholly as partially hidden
shall be uncovered and developed, is a
matter of conjecture that cannot well be
exagerated. Up to a few months ago
only tbe old timers had heard of the
Collins group; no at both your entire
population aud tbe strangers within
your gates must be hearing of us every
There are but twenty men at work on
the mines and the daily output is 150

months to come.
The mines and mill are succesfuly

Phoenix Ladles Who Know
Every Cat in the Critter-
A good looking young fellow was cut
ting steaks yesterday afternoon in one
of tbe leading butcher ehops when a
Republican man noticed that while
they resembled closely good sirloin
steaks there was something suspicious
"What kind ot steak is that?" he
"Oh that is shoulder steak or chuck
steak, the cheapest kind of steak. We
sell it mostly to Mexicans."
The inquirer being one of tbe restless
and migratory army of restaurant and
boarding bouse patrons tMuKicg tnis
was a good opportunity to gaia a little
inside information regarding tbe nature
cf the viands which are daily set before
him, remarked casually:
I suppose you sell a good deal ot it
to the restaurants.
No, sir; the restaurants buy whole
rounds and loins acd cut them up them
selves. We tell a few ot these to the
lunch counter?, where they have a class
ot trade that isn't very particular.
"Don't th lunch counters buy any
-They buy some of the very best.
You eee in tbe lunch counters its just
the same as it is with us; they size up
tbe customer. Some of 'em will stand
a toush steak aud some would never
show up again if they got one of these
follows. Now in the last place I worked,
the wife of a man connected witn one
of the banks used to come in three or
four times a week and always called for
a very smvll porterhouse steak, not to
cost over 15 or 20 cents. Tbe first
cou Die of times we gave her the small
est porterhouse we had, but there was
no oront m it and nine out 01 ten after
that we'd just cut a small piece a little
larger than your band out ot one or
these cnucK steaus irom long siae tne
bone and we never had a single kiok
"Then there was another woman who
used to come in regular and talk about
meat until you couldn't rest. She's the
the wife of one of the leading lawyers
here and said she knew every cut in the
animal. 1 took considerable stock 1
ber at first aad always gave her the very
finest, but one day Bhe said there were
but two cuts in the loin that she
could ever use and discribed how near
the shoulder they were. She was about
four feet out cf the way. The other
feller acd I could hardly keep our faces
stra-ent until ebe cot out of the 6bop.
She was a ereat snaD after that. I tell
you the ones that say they know all
about meat and think tbey do, too, are
just the ones who don't know a thing.

Lexington, Ky.t May 15. The beet
people ot Lexington and Fayette coun
ty, including several hundred ladief,
turned out today to the anti-Bracken-ridge
meeting at the opera house. Tha
meeting from a standpoint ot morality
was a tremendous success. The opera
house was filled and 500 people turned
away. Prof. J. W. McGarvey, an em
inent minister of the Christian church,
was ths first speaker and he showed,
Colonel Brecken ridge up in no favora
ble light. He held that it would be a
disgrace to the district, the state and
the country to return such a man to
congress and closed his speech by a
strong appeal to the young men to
vote against him.
Chicago, May 15. The board of
managers of the Union League club
this afternoon voted to expel Congress

member of the executive board voted

But when Harry C. Clay got up ond
offered a resolution not only denounc
ing Breckenridge's morals, but asking
that Senator J. S. Blackburn be asked
to obtain leave of absence from tha
senate and that he come home and
from the rostrum speak against Breck

cheering was deafening and it waa

that the posses were only a short dis

Senator Teller on the Coxey Moto
Pceblo, May 15. Senator Teller, in
a letter to a citizen ot this city ex
presses sympathy for tbe Coxey army
now m Washington, declares the arrest
and trial of Coxey, Browne acd Jones
was a farce and concludes as follows:
"It is difficult to know what to do
with these peopie who are here in dis
tress, with thousands of others,
through no fault of theirs. They know
that there is rometbicg wrong some
where, and that there ought to be a
remedy and can think ot no other ex
cept what congress can give. I myeelf
believe tbe present dreadful condition
of our laboring acd producing people
is the direct and immediate result or
bad legislation already on our statute
books and other that is threatened. I
bave no hone of immediate legislation
that will give the required relief.

I cannot see, and belive, for my peace
