Jxttuell City, November 11.
Editor CmzEsr Prior to 1S79
section of Arizona known as tbo
"aisironia District, and now famous
,T its vast and rich veina of silver ore,
wa5 practically unknown to the out
.je world- How long it would have
mained as such is a matter of con
erture bad it not been for tbe Hon.
K Luttrell, a well-known ex-Con-ejeman
of California, wbo came
jere in August, 1679, and spent many
weils in making a personal investi
ja'.ien of all mines ou tbe south
vie of the Patngonia mountains. Be
jlg struck with the fine appearance
cf;Le Holland, he immediately went
to New York, where be succeeded in
8 Ebort time in organizing a strong
company, and returning, purchased
tb&t mine, together with its exien
svni. He was at once electid Super
intendent, and in February of this
year, commenced opening up this
mine, and in a few months was re
warded for his untiring energy by
havinz over 1000 tons of floe ore ready
fjrsmelting. A smelting furnace of
30 tons capacity was ordered Irom the
well-known firm of Fraser & Cham
bers. Chicago. Owing to tbe distance
from the railroad and bad roads
caused by Incessant rains, much diffi
culty was bad in securing teams to
haul tbe machinery here, thereby
causing much delay. However, once
on the ground it was soon in place,
and is undoubtedly one of the most
substantial buildings in Arizona.
To-day (Thursday) tbe match was
applied, and the whistle signified the
starting of tbe first smelting works in
the Patagonia District. Neither ex
peaie nor labor having been soared,
cone but a satisfactory and gratifying
reiult was witnessed, and in a few
days a flow of bullion will bo finding
its way to San FrancUco.
Irna ore being a necessity In suc
cessful smelting, Superintendent Lut
trell has bought two mines, one in tbe
Patagonia mountains and the other in
tbe Huachuca mountains, both of
which show unusually fine ora, and in
tuflcleat quantity to supply the great
In March last Mr. Luttrell pur
chased the Alta and Ohio mines, f It
cited near Harshaw, of which he is
Superintendent. These mines having
p.-cied to be milling ore, a mill will
be erected in a few months on a fins
stream of water but a short distance
torn the Alto.
In addition to the above mines Zlr.
Luttrell sold a few weeks ago tbe Bel
mont and Washington group, which
he bad taken in charge, an account of
which was published in the Citizen
at tbe time. These companies have
elected Mr. Luttrell as Superinten
dent, and should he be persuaded to
accept the position he will shortly
commence tbe buildiug of two 60-ton
furnaces near where the Holland com
pany's furnace now stands.
At this writing the furnace is in
blast, and every part is working fine
ly, much to the credit of Prof. O. H.
Habn, who is In charge, and who en
joys tbe reputation of being the most
ncessful smelter on the Pacific Slope.
Thueitwlll be seen that tbe Hon.
J. K. Luttrell hs brought before the
public one of tbe greatest mineral
dUtrlcta in America, and to him alone
must tbe credit be given of having
brought Into Arizona within the past
year nearly one million dollars.

Anothsr Xnw Industry.
Tbe manufacturing Industries of
Tucson are becoming quite extensive.
The latest is a Bpring-bed factory, and
it promises to develop into considera
ble proportions. The proprietor is
Mr. H. P. Olds, and he has opened
an office or Congress street, nearly
opposite the residence or Mr. W. C,
Davis. The article manufactured Is
certainly a good one, and Mr. Olds
has most successfully introduced it
In Nevada and California. In connec
tion with the making of bed springs,
Hr. Olds Intends to carry on an ex
teniire manufacture of mattrasses.
There ie certainly a large field in Ari
zona for this enterprise, and the Crr

without comment. Situated ou tbe

of general merchandise, comprising a
fine selection of dres3, lalies and
gents' furnishing, household, grocery,
toilet and fancy goods. Their new
crockery department has been selected
with special regard to the require
ments of thiB country, and their pat
ent lamps, fine glass ware, choioa
dinner and tea sets of excellent qual

trons t their establishment. The
grocery department strewed with de
licious California and foreign fruits,
preserves, canned goods and jellies,
the choicest and most popular brands
of imported and domestic cigars, und
the large assortment ot liquors and
cordials too numerous to mention, and
the hardware department, where you
cau procure everything that is imlis
penslbleto the household and of util

desirable establishment tor the inhab

to tbe house and took something over
$3 in silver from tbe pantaloons of
Mr. Tu'ly's brother. The thieves
then returned without having
awakened anyone in either honse.

The Next Question.
Now that the questions as to wbo
shall rule us for the next two years
years full of fcreat import to the peo
ple of Arizona the timo has arrived
for the oiscussion of an evil which
has long been felt, which is to-day
weighing like a leaden hand on por- i
tions of the Territoiy, and unless It is
promptly grappled with and settled
forever, we need not look for any
prosperity in the section where the
evil exists. We refer to tbe so-called
" grants " of'land and the munner In
which they are being bandied by the
claimants. It is to be regretted that
Arizona is afflicted with the epidemic.
Her people could stand tbe Apache,
sma.l-pox. and all the other Ills flesh
is heir to, but tbe land grant bids fair
to bo the greatest pest of all. Our
Government, in its sense of justice, 1
liberality and generosity, made the
treaty of Guadaloup Hidalgo for the l
protection of Mexican citizens who)
owned property within that portion
ceded by Mexico to tho United States,;
llttlo thinking at the time that they
were sending forth an invention that
would return to plague the inventor.
As long as the country alon the bor-.
der was unhealthy on account of In
dians, or as long as it took an extra
amount of capital, pluck and energy
to develop or work the mines in these
regions, nobody bud any I&nd gracta
there, or wanted any; but as soon as
the hardy pioneer and miner had part-
ly reclaimed this country and shown
up and made available its vast re
sources, tbeso same not usually the
Mexican citizens, for whose benefit
the treaty was made but a class of ir
responsible land sharks and specula
tors, who, in most cases, have bought
tbe Mexicans' rights at a nominal
price, and wbo now urge tho treaty
relations with Mexico to enable them
to take from tbe pioneer and miner
without compensation tbe fruits of
his years of his toil and privation.
What have these men done for tbe
Tenitory? Their projects are a cloud
and wet blanket upon all enterprise.
They are the parishes of community,
seeking to live upon tbo ltbor of oth
ers. No doubt some of :besn grants
are genuine and valid, atd in all such
cases should be confirmed for exactly
what they aro entitled tr and nothing
more; but many of theie grants are
invalid and ought not tobe confirmed.
All of them should receive tbe most
rigid scrutiny and investigation. All
tbe facts should be brought out and a
full, fair and thorough investigation
be had in tbe case of each grant that
comes up for confirmation. The
whole community 13 icte'cstcd in this
matter. Tbe miners, ranchmen and
others should organize at once and use
all legal means in their power to de
feat these grants. The proper officers
will no doubt fford every facility and
opportunity for a rigid investigation
into tbe merits of each grant

"It strikes us that the most fraud
practiced in the latter part of the cam

of the alleged Garfield Cnineso letter.
It Barnum should bring to justice
those who were guilty of these acts,
he would deserve high praise."
The same paper says: "The case of
Terry, the Democratic Elector in Cal
iforniawho, whether elected or not,
certainly runs behind hi3 ticket in a
close State emphasizes tbe folly of
nominating anybody as Elector who
has anything in his record that men
in his own party can reasonably ob

there may be objections to individual

Another Terrible Colliery Disaster.
Halifax, Nova Scotia, November
12. At about 0:30 this morning an
explosion of gas took place on the
south side of the Ford pit. All the
miners were at work in the different
borders. The explosion wns so terri
ble as to sweep across to the other
side of the pit, killifig the men and
horses there. Almost all tbe men on
the north sido will be saved, while all
the men at work on the south sido
have been lost. At least sixty arc
mising. Five men have been brought
up, and are likely to recover. Probab
ly forty are shut up within the fallen
coal on the south side. The accident
was presumably caused by some miner
firing a shot in a- forbidden part of
the workings. The disuster occurred
in the Ford pit, in the Albion mines.
All who have come up are likely to
live. A working party is down, but
not much hope is ontertnlned for the
safety of the thirty or thirty-five men
known to be in lhe mines.
Later It i3 now reported that thore
are only thirty or forty men now in
the part of tbe mine on fire. Another
explosion is expected every moment.

I Phllii, the Democratic Former.
; New Yokk, November 13. Judge
' DaviB this morning rendered an elab
orate decisioa in the cate ot Philp.
The accused is charged with two of-
i fensvs first, that he wrote tbe so-
; culled letter, counterfeiting the si;?
nature of Garfield thereto, Kiid second,
that after Garfield made public hi
' denial of haviog written such a letter,
tbe accused wrote an editorial and as
serted that Garfield was a liar in deny-
ing the authorship ot it. It is ap
parent, His Honor said, that no such
person as Henry L. Morey existed at
Lynn, Massachusetts. The letter is
unquestionably a forgery, and not in
the hardwriting of Garfield. The
question of the guilt or innocence ot
Philp must be left to tbe Jury to de
cide. Tho defendant is held to an
swer the charge of criminal libel, and
must be committed or give bail. The
geuulneness of Morey is a very im
portant factor in the case. Philp
must be held to answer unless he can
show that Garfield wrote the letter.
Judge Davis said: "Mr. Hewitt's
connection with the transaction is of
a most extraordinary character. Hart
testified when he received the letter
that, in the very singular way in
which it reached him, his suspicions
were aroused. Ho saw its Importance
if genuine as a weapon of deadly
power in tbe hands of Garfield's po
litical foes. He was not satisfied to
publish it upon the examination which
he and the editorial staff could make,
and thetcfore took tbe letter and en
velope to the Democratic Committee
for inspection. Hu there saw Hewitt,
Mr. Barnum, Randall and several
others. Mr. Karl showed them tbe
papers, and said in substance that he
could not publish the letter If it was a
forgery, but if genuine he would, and
hu wanted no other paper to gel ahead
of him. lie saya it was examined by
all the persons named, but Mr. Hewitt
made the closest and most careful ex-
amiaation, and then pronounced tbe
letter, both body and signature, to be
In the handwriting of Garfield. Pho
tographs wero then taken for tbe use
of the Naiicnal Committee, and Hart
roturned with the letter to his office,
but bis mind was not fully satisfied,
and so, late in the evening, he sought
and found Mr. Heivitt again, and was
assured that Hewitt had examined a
large number of Gen. Garfield's let
ters, and that the Morey letter was
genuine; and this was clinched by
impressing Mr. Hart's mind with tbe
idea that be would have made it oat a
forgery it lie could. It Is not very
surprising that Mr. Hart, with tbe
usual anxiety of newspaper publishers
lo be abead of their neighbor, should
have published the letter without fur
ther inquiry, but It is astounding that
men of known eagacity and exper
ience in business and public affairs,
and who is supposed to have a de
cent re.-pect lor truth and justice
and who speaks as an expert in writ
ing, with all the suspicious circum
stances that attended the reception of
ihe letter; with the envelope and its
erasures before him; with tbe city
Postonlce and station stamps on its
back ; with a letter marked " personal
and confidential " addressed to some
person whom he certainly did not
know; wiih the lef.er before him, the
contcnis of which, if true, would be
greatly injurious, and if false would
do wrong to hi3 intimate friends
as a base and wicked assas
sin's stab, should have thought
it just Lo press and cause its
publication without ft rat removing all
doubts as to iu character.''
General ShorUlna't Resort.
Cuicabo, November 9. General
Sheridan's annual report to the Gen
eral of the Army sets forth that there
are in the Department ot Dakota 1850
officers and men; in the Department
of the Piatte 2810; fn that of Missouri
47S0, and that of Texas SMO. He
wished again to put himself on record
as considering this force entirely in
adequate to the great territory and
numerous demands upon the army
from its northern and southern boun
dary. The ratio is about one man
to every 05 square miles, ami in Texas
one man to every 135 square miles.
The result Is troops are frequently
over-worked and of l on compelled to
take the field against greatly super
ior numbers. The officers and men
are equal in intelligence, activity and
devotion to duty to cny army in the
world, and no army of its size has ac
complished one-third as much-hard
work from one year's end to another.
He referred to the rapidity with
which emigrants are opening up land
in the far West. He says that our
frontier is so extensive that for the
present we are compelled to adhere to
the system of small posts, although i t
is inconvenient and costly.
Vnterrlficd but Demoralized.

The story telegraphed from Washing

South were considering the advisabil
ity of having Garfield's election mde
nearly uaanimou a the Southern
States aro concerned receives some
confirmation, tbe object being to
get tbe party ia good shape sou to
give It some sort of show in another
contest. The Bourbon element, how
ever, objects, as it has ml way done to
