The " Jim HaVcf " tof Mark Twain's
" Trump Abriad "Thirty Yoara a.
In lils Tramp Abroad"- Mark
Twtiin gives what i3 called "Jiln
Baker's Enlogiam or the ElueJay."
The story has been cxtciwively repub
lished by the daily press, and has
gained the writer many compliments.
It now transpires that Jim U tkrr is
Jim Gillia, brother or Steve G Mis, a
journalist connected with the Virginia
Enterprise. Jim Gillis is an ecceu
trie character, living the life of a
recluse in the rJi.rm Mountains.
Mark Twain stopped with him for a
month one time, and heard him tell
the blue jay yarn, which i true, by the
way, and many other bird storiea.
Referring to the above circuni
stances. Charlie Goodwin, in the Salt
Lake Tribune, writes the following
tribute to Jim Gillis' worth:
The writer of tins once passed three
days in that cabin with Jim Gilli-. It
is a lou, low, wooden concern, and
bas stood where it is for thirtj- years.
It is as dilapidated as the average
forty-niner, nnd when the breeze is
ptit ring there is always something be
tween a murmur and a moan about it
rafters, as though the experience of
tho.se thirty years which are gone was
trying to nnd voice. And there Gillis
lived with his books, his pets, and his
memories. Not a bit soured is lie that
fortune has not been kind to him. On
the other hand, he lias an idea that he
has been blessed, for though there is
not much gold du-it in the cabin, there
is comfort and peace. Under the floor
half-a-dozen tame rabits burrow, aud
when they want exercise they go out
side and plav with the dogs even a
kittens might play together. Walking
with Gillis in a little garden near the
Cabin, he said, " Did you ever see a
mountain quail on her nest? " and
without waiting for a reply he parted
with bis hands a bush and revealed
the quail sitting quietly over her eggs,
her bright eyes not three inches from
the hand of The man. When asked if
it was not wonderful to teen mountain
quail so time, his answer was, " They
. are mine."
Ueing obliged to talec the stage, two
miles away, "at 4:U0 in the morning,
Gillis flailed as pilot to the writer at
H a. m. That was a walk long to be
remembered. It wa awnj up amid
the great Sierras in Tuolumne county,
California. It was a Juue morning,
ind as te started the first ?heen of the
dawn was commencing to fringe with
purple the mountain crests Willi the
light ths eailiest bird gave it greeting,
and Gillis answered the call of the
bird and spnkc to it by name as friend
speaks to friend. Aud then for an
hour Iittk- was raid except as bird
Hftcr bird awakened and hailed the
dawn Gillis would ever answer back,
calling it by name and adding some
quaint remrk which referred to some
peculiarity of the bird's cdur, habits,
or character. And all the time the
i panorama of the opening day was
being unrolled as it might have been
on that morn whn the" vapors were
rolled back and "God saw tlm liulil
that it was good " until every shadow
of the night was chased away. With
the increasing light bird a'ftcr bird
twk up her song until the hilN grew
resonant, and when at last the sun,
suddenly, with full disk exposed,
Rhone dazzling in the east, an owl in
the thirket hard by gave her hoot and
Gillis answered back, "Good mornlug
and good night, old nilit prowler;
3-ou were Minerva's emblem of old,
you teemed so cIo.c-mot:thcd and
looked fo wise; but since MO you have
been the patron saint of California
sports, for you sleep all day and 3'our
nteht Iran-actions won't bear investi
gation." And there the man had lived
for twenty years a cheerful recluse.
He knew the birds by name atid could
tell all their habits; every plaut that
grew in the hills he knew the name
and family of; and the bills thorn
selves were his companions and his
adoration, and though sometimes go
ing down to the cities to mingle with
men, he soon wearied of their ways
and would return where the hills were
his tc nplcs and the birds and beasts
were his friends.
From Tucson to four miles beyond
the American Flag, and within til
teen miles of the heavy growth of
lumber timber, there is a good freight
ing road, beyond which in order to
gain access to tho timber belt, con
struction would be necessary, the
expense of which is variously estimated
at from $7,000 to $1.".000. Hut as the
sttpplv is estimated by lumber men
who have visited these pineries at from
10,000.000 to 1-1,000,000 feet, tho cost
i3 trifling. The pine stands thick from
eichteen inches to five feet in diameter,
while some of the spruce trees have a

The gap between the pulpit and

Booth in New York, and, recently Ada

say that there should be no antagonism
betwixt chtlrch and stage. Miss Monk

TUCSON, PIMA COUNTY, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, JULY 17,
Development on the Contentment
l mine is most flittering. In the west
cross-cut on the luO-foot level, aboutoO
feet from the shaft, the ore body was
struck yesterday morning.
Another itnp'ortant sale of mines
was consiimaicd on Wcdnesdey. The
group includes the Bulei.h, Terrible,

The Big Blue, belonging to A. W.
Siowe, P. Morse, Theo. F. White and
John Wasson, the shaft, which was
started ou a htiinger, is down twenty
eigth feci, and the workmen have just
encountered the main ledge in the
northwest comer of the shatt, the ore
body being yet undefined in extent.
The ore, which is carbonate, chloride
and horn silver, is in porphyry forma
tion, and assays $100.
Every step of progress- in the dc
veloptn'ent of the Grand Central gives
additional evidence of ils richness.
During the past week a cross-cut has
been driven 8- feet.north of the main
shaft, showing the ore body to be 13
feet through, the average assay of
which is $113 to the ton. At the 300
foot level a station is being cut out
and cross-cutting is trnw goiug on to
strike the vein.
We are informed by Superintendent
Stowc, of the Empire, that from the
200-loot level down to the bottom of
the shaft, the ore has gradua!ly in
creased in quantity and richness,
many of tl" -ys matle the past
week going as u.gU as $100, $500 and
$U00 per ton. Tncy are also taking a
high grade ore from the north level,
some 30 feet north of their working
sh ift, and at a depth of 200 feet.
This week Ramsey's Canyon has
had its round with the pistol, result
ing in the serious wounding of Wm.
Davis by T. D. George. As nearly as
we can learn the particulars, it seems
that Davis and George were playing
a game of cards for a pistol, which was
won by George. Davis conceived the
idea that George had cheated in the
gme, and struck George, whereupon
George seized a pistol aud fired, the
ball striking Davis on the top of the
left shoulder and lodging in hi neck.
The wound on the shoulder is slight,
but the shot in the neck is very danger
ous, though it is thought Davis will
live. George at once surrendered him
self and was brought to Charleston,
where he was put under bonds to
await the result of Davis wounds.

Whcu the railroad p I'scd this place
aud the Tombstone and Patagonia
stage coaches were hauled o(I irom
Tucson, there were some weak-kneed
so-called Tucson men who were heard
to make tho remark that "Tucson was
a lln':hcd town; that from thaldiy
henceforth Tuc-on would gradually
go down." But before the words they
uttered were fairly out o( their mouths,
they have been forced to confess they
did not know what they were talking
about. Our trade has continually
been increasing, and there areas many
singe lines centering here now as there
ever wa', with a certainty of the Pat
agonia lines returning as soon as the
new road to Greatcrville is completed.
Wc have daily- Hues to Oro Blanco
and Arivaca; a scml-we kly to Tubac
and the upper Santa Cruz and on to
Altar and Hormosillo, Mexico; a tii
weekly to Old Hat District and a daily
to Globe District, and soon we shall
have all the Patagonia stages back
here again. So that very soon we shall
hnve more arrivals and departures of
stages here than ever before, and more
than all other points in the Territory
put together. The days of our croak
ers have passed. From now on it will
be a different kind of tune. When our
wholesale merchants begin to build
substantial and commodious three
story brick business houses, as they
will very soon, the burden of their
song will be " I told you so."

The Dcrre & Towtlsend mill at Ari
vaca is running and making fair re
turns. Wc understand roasting fur
naces will soon be erected) when this
mill will be fully prepared tn treat the
base ore of the district surrounding it.
The Arivaca mill has been running
for the last fortnight on tailings, but
will oon shut down to put in the lix
iviation process of amalgamation.
New concentrators have been shipped
from the east, which will soou be put
ia place by Prof. Stewart, ono of the

replace the light ones now in use, and
the crushing capacity will be increased
tj 25 ton3 per day. When the pro
posed improvements are completed
the nil! will be the most perfect in
the Territory, and fully prepared to
satisfactorily reduce the most rebel
lious ores. The furnace capacity has
recently been doubled.
Work is being pushed aheid with
all .possible rapidity at the Con. Ari
zona mill, which iu projectors calcu
late will be running bv the middle of
August. Several hundred tons of ore
lie upon the dumps awaiting trans
portation to the mill. The first returns
are eagerly watched for, as the suc
cess of the mill aud the richness of the
ore have much to do with, at least,
the present prosperity of Arivaca.
There are very few idle meu in or
around the town, in consequence of
which the place is exceedingly dull.
In the Baboqulraris a larjfe amount
of work is being done. The recent
bouding and sale of a number of mines
to parties in the East, has given de
velopments a new impetus.
Messrs. Hudson and B.mt's Ex
chequer, upon which sinking has
been resumed, shows nt a depth of 45
feet a four-foot ledge o! fine ore with
a very strong indication of water, so
much so that it somewhat interferes
with rapid sinking. These parties arc
also djing considerable work on other
claims. Messrs Har.lwicku aud Clak
arc still driving their tunnel, having
some "0 feet yet to go before tapping
the ledge. The Black Ha.vk, boucd
to Eastern parties, is showing some
Messrs. Middlcmas and Wicks have
just bonded a group of six most prom

Eastern miniag circles, and probably
has at present, for the nuuibir of
mines, a larger proportion of Eastern
investments and bonded property than
any other in the Territory.
Last Tuesday a Mexican entered the j
camp or Hardwicke and Clark and
hlolc therefrom a ca?h box containing
$30in coin aud a number of valuable

The Next Apportionment.
A careful study of the figures of
population from the large towns aud
cities of New York, Pennsylvania, and
Illinois warrants the opinion that
those States will gain iu representa
tion at least three members each, and
Illinois probably four, which will
place her in advance of Ohio, and third
iu the list of States. Kansas is likely
to gain tour members, and Nebraska
two and possibly three. Colorado
will gain one member, Texas probably
two, and Minnesota two. No South
ern State but Texas and Maryland
will gaiu a member, save Missouri, ir
that can be called a Southern Slate.
Missuuii will probablygain two mem
bers, and Iowa one. Michigan will
gain at least one member, ami Indiana
ouc, with a chance or one tor Ohio.
New Jersey will aIo gain two mem
bers, owing to tbo extraordinary
growth of some of her larger towns
as Jerey City, Newark, and Camden.
The very large increase of popuUtiou
in Pro idence and some oilier towns
of Rhode Island may add another
member to the delegation from that
State, and Massachusetts may also
ga;u one member, owiug to accessions
iu Boston, Lowell, and a lew others of
her larger manufacturing towus. No
other New England State has any
prospect ot gaiu. Vermont wi'l lose
Of tho Pacific States, California is
the only one that will gain in repre
sentation. She has now four mem
bers, aud will gain at least two, with a
chance for a third on a large fraction.
San Francisco, now entitled to one
member, will, in connection with San
Mateo and Santa Clara, be entitled to
two after 16S2. By that time the now
Territory of Washington will have
been admitted as a State, and possibly
Arizona also; so that the Pacific Slate
will, under the new apportionment,
gain probably five members in the
Ilouse and four in the Senate. Chron.

whose property is the Contention
mine, of Tombstone, have declared
their first dividend of 75 cents a share,
payable immediately at San Francisco.
This is no more than was expected,
and is but the first of a series of divi
dends which wMl follow, as the Con
tention is one of the best ot all our
gnat mines in Pima county
UK'HUS OF ARIZONA.
Wht Ct'lutiel Fonlk, or tho Army. SHy
We take the following extracts from
an articie "ii Arizona, Iu the Pittsburg
Commercial Gazette, by Colonel Foulk
who spent a year in our country, and
knows what he is talking about:
It has been impossible heretofore,
save at very great and ruinous outlays,
to transport machinery, material or
stores iuto the Territory for mining or
other purposes. Until December,
1S78, and after, the only means of
! transportation for even passengers
into the territory, was by " buck
bo ird " and " gerky wagon " convey
ance from Yuii.a" to Tucson. Fare
$00, and ."0 cents a pound for baggage
or articlts exceeding 30 pounds to the
passenger, a distance, of atmut 300
miles or less. '1 hese difllcultie ure
now principally overcome. The -outu-ern
Pacific railroad, which has been
in operation for nearly two years, trom
Sau Francisco down the Pacific slope
t Yuma City, on the Colorado, a dis
'.uuee of 275 miles, has bceu very re
cently completed to Tucson, Arizona,
a distance of 218 miles from the lonit
cr place, and was in complete running
order to ".he latter place op the first of
last March for both passengers aud
freight. Since then llie road has been
completed and carrying both passen
gers antl freight for a distance of about
20 miles east of Tucson. And now
largo forces of engineers, skilled
mechanics and an army of laborers,
the latter principally Chinamen, are
at wort running lines, grading and
building the road, laving the track,
and otm-rwisc pushing thts road for
ward to completion with great vigor,
leading into New Mexico and onward
to join hands at perhaps El Pa-o with
llie Texas and Pacific railroad, the lat
ter road with its completed Southern
system of roads ruuniug directly east
through the gulf states, also northeast
to New York City.
Ia another year this great throngh
Southern route will be completed and
in running oider for both pa-seng rs
aud freight, and then there will lw a
choice of two routes to reach lite min
ing localities of Arizona. At the pres
eut lime the " direct anil only through
route " by all rail into Arizona i from
the Missouri river at Omaha to Ogden,
Utah, over llie Union Pacific 1032
miles, Ogden to au Fraucisco over
the Central Pacific SSJ miks, San
Franoiso down the Pacific sloi e to
Yuma City 123 miles, and thence to
Tucson 217 miles over the Southern
Pacific, a total distance of 2SS0 miles
from llie Mis-ouri river, or from New
York City to Tucson, iwcr the Penn
sylvania railroad lines to Chicago, and
ilia Chicago and Northwestern rail
road to the .Missouri river at Omaha,
the shortest, best and most direct mute
to the Missouri, the distance is -1122
milca. This embraces one ol the most
interesting and enjoyable trips possi
ble to be made on this continent
The writer has visited at various
times during the past year a large
number of the mines in Arizona, all or
which were very productive, and gave
uriquu'tfk-d salisf tction to the owners,
the' silver ore assaying from $50 to
$1000 ncr ton. Large quantities of
rich and valuable ore Tn most instances
were piled up near the respective
miues in large heaps awaiting the aid
of proper machinery to reduce it to
bullion. In instances it was being re
duced by arastras primitive machin
ery for the purpose.
An A rait our Miner.
Dr. Schliemann, iu a letter to the
St. Petersburg Golos. say: " I have
just returned from Asia Minor, where
I have at last finished that digging
out or Troy which I beg in in 1870."
We had hoped that before he left Troy
the Doctor would meet Colonel Fair.
If so, no doubt the Colonel gave him
some valuable advice aud inlormatin.
We have not kept the run of Superin
tendent Schlicmann's prospecting op
cr.aiond, but have our opinion ot them
from his latest letter to the head ollice
in which he makes the remark that
lie found it necessary to " dig up the
ground for more than sixteen yards
below the surface." Forty-eight feet!
What a dizzy distance! A Comstock
miner often falls more thap that dis
tance ou the top of his head and never
mentions the circumstance afterward.
But Schliemann is not too old to learn.
He is only a little over fifty wc be
lievc; aud" Eastern men even older
than that often come out to this coa-t
u-terly ignorant of mines and return
in a week knowing all about them and
able to give even Mackay himselt
points. Hence wc have hopes for
Schliemann, and expect to soon see a
change in the character of hi.s corrc
pon.lence. He will open a station at
the 4S foot level and drift in four dif
ferent diicctions, nnd will also go
deeper. He wiil eagerly pursue any
indications of water so as to have
some interesting and business like
troublo with it. order pumps, spend
tive weeks getting in n bob, break a
pump tod every two days, gain on and
lose on the flood alternate months and
keep cxpi-ctatalion and furnace fires
up to the highest point. A wttize tc
meet the upraise in Priams' plate
closet; an incline down the stairs of
Aeneas' up.town residence in the di
rection of the wine cellar; a bonanza
in the left hand upper drawer or Hec
uba's bureau, by means or a epfsctit
rrom the second floor drift The Su
perintendent will write: "Since my
letter of the 1-ith have sunk shaft three
feet through a very promising forma,
tion of human skeletons, evidently the
private cemeterv of a warrior Shall
start a drill immediately nnd prospect
for the geutleinan's residence where
the personal eflects and jewelry of the
victims will doubt!es be uncovered.
On the 02-fotit level drift wrt p-issed
through good working ground three
feet a Trojan editorial room where
Drogress was delayed by the skulls of
its former ocupnnts. Are blasting
our way through, but don't'expect to
strike anything just at present. Every
thing is" working well around the
mine, excepting, of course, the Super
intendent." Fnojf passengers who came in on
the coach Trom the West, yesterday,
wc hear that is is the beli'-r at some
Arizona posts that Victcrio has left
Mexico and returned to Grmt county,
and that he came up between the Rio
Gmndc and old Fort Cummings.
What their grounds are for that belief
we do not know, or whether the report
is true, but it is well for the outlying
settlements to keep at least one eye
open and lie prepareJ for aa attack.
Void Iaiml Kntrlr.
Commissioner Williamson, of tilt
General Land Office, has issued a ser
ies of detailed in-tructioas to all Reg
isters and Receivers, which prescribe
the regulations necessary tor carrying
into effect the law enacted at the last
session of Congress lor refunding nil
excess payments, ordinary purchase
money, fees aud commissions on void
entries of ublic lands. The act affects
ihousauds of scttltrs throughout the
Western States and Territories. The
first section authorizes the payment to
nnocent parties f the Tees and com
missions paid by them on entries of
fraudulent soldier' and sailors' addi
tionl homestead scrip, of which very :
large quantities were forged and set
afloat in the Cslern States someyears
ago. Commissioner Williamson's in.
structious require thorough proof of
the .innocence of thu ap, hc.uils (or
teliei' under this section. The reemtd
section provides for the repayment of
the purchase money and ot fees, com
missi, .ns and excess payments in all
cases where entries of public lauds
hae been cancelled " for couflict," or
where for any cause, the entry had
beeu erroneously allowed by the local
laud otliccs and cannot be confirmed;
also, for refunding the extra $1.25 per
acre paid by preemption settlers for
lauds supposed to be " double mini
mum "lands, with railroad limits, but
alierwards discovered tc be outside of
such limits, ami therefore purchasable
at the ordinary minimum price ot"
$1.25 per a re" All these repay
nients may be made to the party
who made" the original entry, or to
his heirs, executor-, or administrators,
or to the asignee specially authorized
to receive such rep.ymeut, but a mere
conveyance of the land will not be
deemed to cany with it the riaht to
repayment, unless ep'es'y so staled
In the assignment. Where there has
been a conveyance of the land, aud the
original purchaser applies for repay
meut, he mu-t conclusively show that
be has indemnified his asignee, or per
feced the title in him through another
service. Assignees of the title to the
land must show by affidavit or other-
wise, that lliey pave not lieen indemni
fied by their gn.ntors for the failure of
such title, and that such title has not
b.en perfected in them by their
grantor through anodi r saiirce.
Whi n there is a specific assignment rf
the purchase money, evidence of the
nun-indeninilicaliou by the grantor is
not required- In case of desert laud
entrees, assignees of the port base
money are the only asignei s recog-1
nizeu. .n applications lor repay
ment are to be transmitted, together
with all paper in the case, to the
Commissioner of tuc General lnd
Office, through the Registers nnd Re
ceivers ot the proper district, who are
required to make Jue report upon each
ra-e transmitted, and the money finally
found due will be paid out of the
treasury upon the warrant ot the Sec
retary uf the Interior.
An English View.
Englishmen are becoming more
convinced every day of the hope
lessuess or contending with the na
tural products or this country. Under
the hue Government tn Agricultural
Commis-ion wu- formed to inquire
into the state of affairs, gather informa
tiou, or, if posih!c suggest a n medy
for the actual and threatening distress
of the English agriculluial clashes.
This commission Mr. Gladstone de
nounced as absurd, anil an ' imposi
tion," uothwithstanding ic was com
posed of very eminent and experienced
men. Thu truth of the case wa very
plain. The English agriculturalist
had to contend against the weather
a successions of bad siasons and
competition from abroad. The weather
may change, but the competition mU-t
continue for a very long peri-'d or
time, at all events to be overwhclmn
ing. "In a certain setise,,: sayjtlu?
London times vtry keenly, "America
and Australia are being discovered
over again ;" that is to ay, people in
the Obi World are only just beginning
to realize wh..t the discovery of these
en -rmous territories, with their mar
velous climates and vast stores of still
undeveloped natural and mineral
wealth means. It moans a shitting of
the humm race and of centers of in
terest aud power. " Disturbances from
beyond the seas arc always arriving
on the British coasts,' confesses the
English journal. "There is a new
world coming upon us, and webave to
acquaint ourselves with its ways and
jHosibilitics." The general rccotn.
metidation seems to be that the En
glish farmers must find their own way
out orthe difficulties that beset them,
and either change the material of
their product so as to evade the com
petition, or else abandon a soil that
will no longer support them. Agri
cultural commissions may be useful
iu their way, but the- cannot over
come nature nor hut England off
from a world that will pour its wealth
into her lap for a conslderAilon.
Swain's mill started on the Silver
King tailings on Wednesday. It is
Ciiknlited to run 40 tons per day. but
It will be long before we can see any
apparrnt decrease in th snormous
pi.e before us. It is well and substan
tially built, and has a tr imway with
cars'worketl bv the engine to aud Irom
the tailings. The machinery worked
smoothly and there seems to be no rea
son why Mr Swain's herculean under
taking should not lie accomplished
with profit to ail parties concerned.
