Hermosillo, December 3.
Editoh CiTiznx: I left Tucson
Tuesdaj- afternoon by tbe .Magdnlena
and Hermosilhi stae, and arrived
here tins morning, which is doing a
distance of 261 miles in pretty good
time. The road from Tucson out as
tar as San Xavier, the heavy wagons
which constantly pass over it having
crushed it completely and reduced
the adobe to an impalpable dust,
which Hits up in clouds as vehicles
pass by, filling the passenger's mouth
and niistrils and making hint very
uncomfortitble. Once past tbe "ninc
milc"liouee the road improves and
becomes decidedly fine after a while.
The valley there is very broad, cov
ered with excellent grass which af
fords food to many cattle and could
accommodate many thousands more.
The driver and guard being very
tired, we camped at the Ranch De
bentou, and in the morning rattled
through Tuunc, of which I caught
but a passing glimpse. 1 must admit
that I don't yean alter Tulmc.
The next place was Las Calabnsas,
or rather the place where Las Cuba
sas ought to be. At present it con
sists ot a substantial and commodious
brick bouse, in which Col. 3IcArthu
has his store, a smaller houso, also of
brick, and the foundation of :t larger
one. About 500 yards on the other
side of the tout! is a large well worked
At Pete Kitchen's, near the frontier,
I had my first experience oi a Mexi
can stagc-roarf meal. It consisted of
fried potatoes unit a nondescript arti
cle, which smne one called fried
jerked meal. It was stringy and taste
less, arid in ray opinion is fried as
bealos. Every meal I have hail to
swallow since ha consisted of the
same peculiar st tiff, but the potatoes
are now frijoles.
Aftei traveling a little further we
come to the Mexican custom hou-e,
where the oftlcers insisted on search
ins nil the trunks. Thev were much
diwp:itntcd when it turned out that
of all tlif. par-sengers on the stage only
one attained to the dignity of sportiug
a trunk, o the ofliccrs nil had a finger
in the pic and turned the trunk inside
out. It wai then discovered that tbe
owner of the trunk was a tragedian
and a poet On the top of his clothes
lay a formidable locking quarto of
about 5(H) pngcp, which upon closer
in-.pec:ion pmvedto be covered with
closely written manuscript. It pto
pricior pounced upon it and rarried it
into the "taije, where he confidently
informed me that it was a tragedy iu
vere, teven eis, in Spanish, and of
his own carpentering. II" wa even
an act or l wo. I shivered wlien I
heard him seven acls of tragedy in
verse and in Spanish! I turned white
under the dust which covered mj-
cbeekt and groaned. Why, it would
take as long as a Chinese play, aud
they proverbably last no Jess than six
months. I capped him though, n
fortunately I had with me a "Weekly

This diverted Ins attciitini Irom his

Banamaciii, Sonora, Nov. 20.
Editor Citizen: Although I have
had little timo to spare lately, -et I
do not wish you should forge! me,
more particularly as Sonora is coming
to the lront with rapid strides. We
will have the railroad iu Ilermoiillo
by the first of Mr-, and then with all
speed up the Sonora Iliver to pass by
my 'in anticipation) happy camp. At
present all the attention of natives
and Americans is centered in the San
ta Elena, the property of (Sen. Pe
quira. During some weeks buck a
M-. Mau.-feld anil part- have given
the mine a thoiough examination and I
have never seen n mine thai will licar
an examination better than Santa
Elena. The vein crops out of the
mountain in which it is situated for
the full length of the claim (800 metres
long; a solid body of gold and silver
bearing quartz, from :0 to -10 feet
high by 50 feet wide. Tne interior
developments are about :00 feel deep Uy
4ftO in length. This is liic princi'wl
work, although not the only one, as
they have works all along the claim
discargttes, the' are called, in the
lnnguti'ge of the country. All those
outside works were made by the poor
of the country who worked the ore in
arrastras with results that made for
Banamachi a golden boom for m:iny
years before the mine came into the
hands of iis present -wner. At pres
ent the works an- confined to the prin
cipal opening, in the bottom ot which
I measured a fnce of ore 13 feet wide
which ass.ayed- $240 per ton in gold
and silver, the bullion lieiug worth
3 per ounce troy. This, without
doubt, is the iiuot mine I have ever
seen, and 1, like everyone else in Ibis
part of thecountry.am anxious that Mr.
Mnnsfcld should purchase the prop,
erty.ns we would then hope to see this
grand mine worked up to its full ca
pacity, as it certainly would be in the
hands of Americans. As the mine is
at present it could wit ease supply
one hundred stamps; nnd after tlie
mine is put in proper shape five bun
dled stamps could be supplied with
ore that would give in gold alone $40
per ton. Gen. l'esquira is now run

to a knowledge of the gigantic prop

the Sonora River! Then even Santn

I am now working in January last,
and since then iherc have been hun
dreds of locations made which in
many cases make good showing. So
far, I stand second lo Sauta Elena,
although my mines ire entirely differ
ent. The Carmen still continues to
give the richest ore iu the district in
sufficient quantity to pay my way and
keep me in beans. In the mine of
Grnmaditos I am now 'approaching
the deepest level, where 1 soon hope
to declare a dividend. My other
mines I have to leave idle until 1 am
able to get a mill. In those mines I
have a quantity of ore hut of too low
a grade to work by arrastras. which
is tlie only mill within my power.
The people of the river are happy
over a good crop of com ai.d beans,
nnd at present tlie fanning population
are employed iu the manufacture ol

A HOLD llCItGLAKY
Velnsco's Commission Store llrokeu
Into and tho Offlco Safe Carried Off
on H AVlieel-Ilarrow.
During the la3t tew months there
have occurred a genes of burglaries
which indicate that there is in this
cilv an oreanized band of bold but
not over-shrewd house-breakers, and
they have thus far successfully evad
ed the tioltcc. Their work is general
lv characterized by a good deal of
assurance aud boldness, but it is sel
dom done in a way to indicate adepts
at the business. Only a few nighta
since a nrivate house in this city was
entered, und a case of jewels abstract
ed from the sleeping apartments of
the family. The most open act thu
lar committed by the gang, however,
was the burglary of Mr- D. Vclasco's
con: mission store on Mesilla street
Sunday night. The place was entered
by the street door, which was lecured
bv a padlock ana an orainary aoor-
lock. The first was wrenched from
its fastening, and the second was
opened bv means of a skeleton key
which was left in the lock. The yisit
ors rifled a show case of jewelry to
the value of about $100, and five re
volvers, worth nearly as much, and
then loaded the small office safe,
which weighs about 300 pounds, on a
wheelbarrow which was procured
from Goodman's grocery store, and
trundled it to the centre of Military
plaza. Here a couple of picks and a
heavy crow-bar belonging to the rail
road com pan v were brought into re-
ouisitlon. and a hole broken in the
back of the snfe, from which was ab
stracted a tin cash-box. of the pattern
Usually lo be found in mercantile
houses. The box contained in the
neighborhood of $175 in Mexican sil
ver and currency. Whether tho
thieves' investigations were here in
terrunted or not does not appear, but
certainly they left more value than
they took. In another compartment
of the safe was $200 m old coin, and
several laree Dieces of silver bullion
worth nerhaus as much mote. It
would seem, therefore, that the burg
lars were disturbed in their work.

From Mr. X. .1. TOitklii. In Keply lo
Tucson, December C.
EuiTOit Citizen: The communica
tion of Judgo llaynes in your issue of
the 4th inst. I am compelled to it'dice,
because of its errors and the exulted
position of the writer in Tucson, rather
than for any inherent merits it may
possess, or any new light it has shed
upon the " cuttle-stealing case." His
familiarity with newspaper.-! should
have taught him that editorials don't
appear with multitudinous head-lines.
The article headed "Bound Over" was
an impartial report by myself of the ex
amination oftheca-cof Mr.Sanford be
fore Justice Meyer. The examination
during its progress nssumed really the
character of a lull and exhaustive
trial, and the accused was committed
without hesitation by one or the fair
est magistrates in this or any other
conunnnity. Professionally I am a
journalist, and have had some exper
ience as a reporter of criminal cases
for newspapers of national reputution.
I could have had no bias, as neither
the accused nor the members of the
Stock Raisers Association were known
to me when I wrote that repot t. I
claim to understand the English lan
guage when 1 hear it, and to be mens
ureably correct iu my interpretation
of it. That the counsel for the ac
cused should not look at tctimouy as
I do is us ii to u ml as that the eagle
should not turn away in disgust from
the carrion upon which it feeds The
arguments of the Judge are so utterly
specious as to need no reply from me.
Respectfully, N. J. W.vtkins.

For some time past tho settlers and
rnnehnien in ihe San Simon Valley
in ihe southeastern portion of the Ten
ritory, have been suojecica io a reg
olnr course of theft, which resulted s
.Sort time ago In the murder of a man
Martin. On the night of the
22d of November seven head ot horses
ntul mules, belonging to turner
Lindt-roan, were run off by a gang of
four outlaws, A-liose nenoquariers
were in a portion of the valley where,
with a good field-glass, they were en
abled to survey an extensive section
of the country. A party of six set
tlers immediately armed themselves
and started in pursuit of the thieves,
and after following them into Clover-
rinle District, about (JO miles distant
in New Mexico, succeeded in recap
turingthe stock, together with eight
bead wnicu nau previously uccubiuicu
from parties near Shakspeare. The
stock was brought hack to the ranch
of Turner & Lindeman, which is on
tim romi from San Simon Station to
i lie new California Mining District
Mr. Turner and a man named Bob
Martin then left for Shakspeare with
four of the stolen stock belonging to
Mr. Fitzgerald of that place.
At the time of the recovery of the
stock from the thieves a number ol
shots were exchanged, but so far as
known no one was wounded. The
outlaws evidently dogged the party
Imc.k to the ranch, and from their
v rir in the hills observed the return
oftiii stock. As Messrs. Turner and
Martin returned from Shakespeare,
thev- were ambushed in Stein Peak
Puss bv the outlaws, who were con
cealed in the rocks. At the first fire the
horses of the two men were killed
under them, aud nt the second round
Mnrtin was killed by a bullet tiirougu
the bead. Mr Turner then fled from
the road and concealed himself, and
observing the horses of the outlaws
at some little distance where they hnd
been picketed, he commenced firing
at them, hoping to dismount Ins as

schools, speaks of the increase of
spirit which Is manifested in the cause
and says the only difficulty experienced
is in obtaining teachers. There is at
"present in course of erection as many
school houses nt military posts as ap
propriations will admit of. One of
the advantages uf these schools, the re
port says, is that they offer opjsortu
nities for the education of the chil
dren of emigrants who may settle iu
the vicinity of military p.sts, every
encouragement being ollered to the
parents to send their children to the
post schools, and the only expense
they incur is purchasing their own
books It is stated that educaiion in
the army has become necessary on ac
count of the improved arms, ami that
experience hns shown that men of lib
eral education can be taught the use
of the rifle with much more facility
than meu who have not received any
education. Gen McCook calls special
attention to the difficulties met
with in obtaining competent teachers
for tho post schools from the eu
listed men of the army, and says:
' Asoldier detailed forteachcrina post

Mr. N. Grayson, who is visiting the

stock-raising business, for a good

from hi ranch near Woodland, California.
rV correspondent of the Citizen
some tune since predicted that ere
lung Arizona would bo furnishing the
outside world with something else
than the product uf her mines, and
hnt particularly the stock-raising in
dustry would some day assume im
mense proportions. That prediction
is being rapidly verified. On Satur
day last, Messrs. Vail & Harvey, of
the Empire Itanch, shipped fivo enr-
mds of beef cattle to lckery fc
Hinds, the extensive wholesale butch
ers of Lo Angeles, and a similar ship
ment win ne made next week. this
is, wc believe, the first shipment of
the kind, and certainly of the quan
tity, ever made from Arizona, and it
marks a very important epoch in our
Territorial progress. It is but fair to
presume that stock-raising in Arizona
s yet in its infancy, nnd the above
nlelligence is noteworthy from the
fact that Los Angeles has hitherto
been the supply depot for Arzonn.
and now the tide is turning. The
balance of trade tlreatens not long to
remain with the Angelenos, and wc
a-sure them that before long, if our
rnuciimcu in the valleys prosper and
ncrcasc as they have been doinc for
the past year, there will be more ar-
lcles than stock which wo can better
