the purpose of bringing a mine into a

Consequently, the resources of the

There are many cases wnere capiuu

one instance it may be absolutely nec
essary to place a deserted and -watcr-fiiinri

other its main advantage is in expe
diting matters, enlarging production
and in reducing expenses. Such in
vestments are advantageous and rea
sonable where the value of mines have
been properly tested . But the mining
industry suffers severely from invest
ments made on properties uuuci

full of such companies organized on

The London Telegraiib, in a recent
editorial, pays a splendid aud deserved
tribute to the men who hold the lives
of hundreds in their hands the lo
cotn&tive engineers. It says: Most
passengers tire iguorant, happily, of
the pitfall under their feet as one is
of the intricate process of digestion,
or of the human frame. They lake
their journeys as they do their food,
trusting blindly that, somehow or
other it will be all right, and that the
narrow corners will be shaved, and it
seldom occurs to them to express their
thankfulness lor the manly devotion
which contributes to their safety.
While faith is the guiding rule of the
traveler, duty is the absorbing prin
ciple of the railway servant. But
does it never occur to the wakelul
traveler as the lamps Hash past him
as tho train rushes over bridges and
through a network of of signals as the
tunnel seems a duller road and the
lighted station a suppressed scream,
when the pulse of the motion never
stops nnd the impetus at time becomes
almost terrible, what a sense of grat
ification there ought to be toward
those lonely men who taithful to the
end turn this point and that, shift the
lamps, keep watch and ward aud clear
the way lor the swift cxnress? Those
who have trusted themselves to this
splendid power are utlerly powerless.
Their lives are in the hands of the
men who drive the train, and of the
signal men who watch. Yet thero is
no sleep in the signal box or at the
tunnel mouth ; there is no conversa
tion, no distraction, nothing but a dull
monotony of duty. A score f things
may have happened; the staff may be
shorthanded, some one is unexpected
ly on the sick list, some good natured
fellow znay have done double duty out
of pure comradeship; but this makes
no dillcrcncc in the safely of the line.
There need be no fear when uich men
know their duty and do it.
Iltvlslmi of I'ima County.
There seem to be some doubts in the
minds of our Tombstone Iricnds as to
the sincerity of members-elect to the
Legislature from Tucson and the
western portion of the county as to
their future action on the creation of a
new county from the cast end of this
(Pima) county, if we are to believe
the little reminders which from time
to time appear in the Epitaph and
The question ot a division of the
county was discussed before the elec
tion, and while no promises were ex
acted or given, several candidates on
both tickets voluntarily expressed
themselves in favor of such a division,
if the citizens of the eastern portion of
the county desired it. Not because
they were in favor of such a division,
but simply as a matter of justice to
that portio'u of the count-. It would
be to the interest of Tucs-on to have
the limits of Pima county remain
where they arc; but when w e look at
the other side of the qucst'on, and con
sider the injustice of asking cit'zens
from the extreme eastern portion of
the county 150 to 175 miles away to
come to Tucson to look after somo
little, petty nUair which, under the
law, requires attention, or to record a
deed or mining location, or to search
the records or attend court, we can
not fail to sec the injustice of trying to
maintain our present limits, ami if the
eastern portion of the rouuty desire to
strike a division line and form a new
counly we could not reasonably ob
ject to so just a demand; nor do we
believe that nny objection would be
made by our people. The only ques
tion upon which there could be any
differenco of opinion would be the
establishing of the division line. But
that could, we have no doubt, at the
proper time, be amicably arranged by
the members-elect from Pima County,
to whom it would bo referred in case a
division is determined upon.

KALTIMOKK AND OHIO'S I'UO-
Its Independent New York Line Open
Through Train Kun lletwcen
Washington and New York Hos
tility ortho I'ennsylvanla Company
New York Dally American Exchange.
The New York and Washington
line of the Baltimore and Ohio Com
pany has become an accomplished
lact. Yesterday nassenser trains be
gan running, the first ones leaving
iSew lork lor Washington, anu
Washington for New York at 9 a. m.
The trains which arrived in this city
were about forty minutes behind the
schedule time, but it vas claimed at
the ofhee ol the Central Hailroad ol
New Jersey that this was on account
of the newness of the through line.
We expect to be a little slow in our
running time at first," Judgo Lathrop,
the receiver of that company, said,
" until cvcrythini: jrets in proper order
and we know just what we can do. So
far as we have been advised here,
there was no detention on tho line,
and no hindrance was encountered at
Philadelphia from the Pennsylvania
Hailroad." The time-tables of the
new line had not been fully prepared
yesterday, but the number ol trains
betwcen New York aud Philadelphia,
it was stated, had been increased to
The New York connection of the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is made
over the Philadelphia, Wilmington
and Baltimore, the Philadelphia and
Reading and its leased lines, the
North Pennsylvania and the Bound
Brook, and the Central Kailroad of
New Jersey. For some years past the
Baltimore and Ohio Company has
been striving to establish a line to
New York independent of the Penn
sylvania Railroad, but its success has
been prevented by the position winch
was taken by the Pennsylvania re
garding the use of the Junction road
in Philadelphia, over which the Bal
timore aud Ohio is compelled to run
its trains to secure connection with
the Reading roads. The Junction
Koad is a short piece ot tracu winch
was built jointly by the Pennsylvania,
the Reading and Ihe Philadelphia,
ilmmgton and Ualtimore com
panies. Tho last mile and a half of
the five miles of road was built entire
ly by the Pennsylvania Company,
which refused to turn in the bills of
its cost to the other two companies for
their proportionate share in the ex
pense, and which claimed to own ab
solutely tins portion ot the road. As
soon as the plans of the Baltimore and
Ohio were completed tor its road to
New York, litigation was begun to
test the validity of the position as
sumed by the Pennsylvania Company,
aud several weeks ago a decision was
rendered in the United Stales Circnit
Court at Pittsburg, favorable to the
Baltimore nnd Ohio. The last
named company was conceded to
have full use of the Junction Road,
and while an appeal may bo taken to
the United States Supreme Court, an
injunction restrains it Irom mtcner
itnr with the running of the Baltimore
aim" Ohio trains over the Junction
A correspondent of tho Ruralist
writes: Many aud varied jiave been
the plans, both kind and harsh, tried
for the cure ot balkmess in norses by
parties troubled, delayed and pro
voked iu this way. Having had con
siderable experience in the handling
of such horses, I have found the follow-
in a cood remedy. It is easily and
quUkiv performed, and has never, so
far as 1 am aware, failed to cure: Two
persons arc required for the trial. One
should hold the reins while the other
fastens a short strap or rope a halter-
strap, always at hand, answers the
purpose weil jest be'ow the fetlock
of a foreleg; then, going forward, he
should pull on the strap until the
horse lilts his loot; continuing to
null, the foot will be brought forward
and set down a little in advance of the
other. The horse, thus thrown out of
a natural position, will move forward
to regain his equilibrium. Another
pull will causo another move for
ward. This may be repeated several
time?, or until the horse moves with
out having his foot pu'led forward.
Usually, the first or second pull will
start him. Three or four such re
minders, at most, will do the work.
When the start is made it is generally
an easy one. toometimes, however, 11
has the appearance of the horse being
in a hurry to get away from the pro
voking man with the strap; therefore,
a stead' hand should manage the
reins. I have never known a horse
under this treatment to kick or act
mean in any other way than to try to
run. AVhcn he docs start oil, the hold
on the strap should be given up.
After having cone twenty-five or more
yards, the horse should gently be
brought to a stand and me strap re
moved. Then try to start him with
out the strap. It he does not move
off at once apply it again. He will
soon tire of being thus annoyed, and
will give yOu nt lurthcr trouble in

A Succrfiil Newspaper.
The San Francisco Daily Stock Re
port has now entered the field of gen
eral journalism with a new edition to
be known as the Daily Report. Hav
ing long been the best stock paper of
San Francisco, it is now one of the
best newspapers of that city. It ta
not afraid to tell the merchants of that
sleepy town of their mistakes, and it
is conducted in au able and brilliant
manner. The Report is one of our
Complaints of Delay In Transportation
and Hrceislve Itates of IrelKht
Kenton Why and Wherefore.
There arc nlways two sides to avery
question, let it apnertain to railroads
or anything else. Tlu-re are people in
this world who will complain and
find fault under all circumstances
whose happiness appears to consist in
making themselves perfectly misera
ble. They consider thomselvis injured
they are martyrs; nothing suits them;
the world is against them in their
opinion, aud yet if the whole of their
rouble were sifted to the bottom, it;
would be the old story of the moun
tain in labor bringing forth a mouse.
From the day on which the Southern
Pacific Railroad opened its station a;
this point, there have been those who
have done nothing but growl and find
fault at the " tardiness" of transporta
tion and the excessive rates charged.
This is natural, however; it is the re
compense received by those whose en
ergy, enterprise and capital have
opened the doors to civilization, and
made valuable that which has hereto
fore been worthless. Only n short
time since a mercantile house in this
city received a letter from which we
make tho following extract. The find
fault mania has reached poin's east of
us, for the complaining comes
from near Lordsburg. It says: "This
error on the part of your clerk ac
counts in a great measure for the un
accountable dclaj' in getting goods
through from Tucson to this place.
The tardiness displayed by the South
ern Pacific Railroad in this regard and
the arbitrary rates charged, is driving
an immense traffic from Silver City,
Georgetown, Hillsboro, Clifton.Shakes
peare, and all surrounding mining
camps east, and working serious dam
age to the interests of California and
Tucson. Rates from Chicago, St.
Loins and New York are given us at but
a trilling advance over the rates between
here and San Francisco, Los Angeles
or Tucson. This Is a matter worthy
of your attention, and of remonstrance
with the Southern Pacific Railroad
officials." This " growl " is moderate
in tone, but now let us hok at the
other side of the question. With re
spect to the word tardiness, as used
by the complainaut, we suppose
the term expresses uothiug ex
cept it is used relatively. The
Southern Pacific Railroad Compnny
has built during the past year an un
precedented number of miles of road.
It has outstripped the Atchison Road
by many miles, having alreudy
passed the proposed end of the track,
while it, the Atchison, Topeka and
Santa Fe Road, is seventy or eighty
miles distant, and the last station
opened for business on that line is one
hundred and thirty miles distant from
Ihe Southern Pacific.
The Southern Pacific has opened
stations wherever they were demanded
b' business, and as soon after the
track reached the point as water could
be fouud. It has also received freight
and forwa.ded all that was offered
without any interruption or delay ex
cept such as may haveoriginated from
storms or a pressure upon the road iu
order to get building supplies Tor
ward, it being of first importance, not
only to the compairy, but to the citi
zens of Arizona and New Mexico,
that the track be extended as rapidly
as possible. In order to build the
road and at the same time do busi
ness, it has had to run special t rat in
with steel aud ties in order lo make
up for delays on Eastern road. It
also had to haul coal from Wyoming
to New .Mexico, and even to buy coal
in the San Francisco market, at rates
two or three times higher than ordi
nary. Notwithstanding these delays,
which no amount of expense and nkill
in management couM avoid, we ven
ture to hsseit that, upon tho average,
there is no road in the country which
has moved its freight so promptly
during the past four months as the
Southern Pacific. There have been
no instances of such delays as occurred
upon the Atchison Road last fall aud
summer by reason of freshels; no
instances where consignees haw not
received their freight in an incredibly
shoit time as compared with limes
when they had no railroad. Under
these circumstances it seem to u- thut
there is a want of judgment or fair
ness upon the part of the person mak
ing the complaint referred to.
Now, again, as to the arbitrary
rates charged : The Southern Pacific
Railroad Company has not thus far by
its busiues, been able to pay for
opening the roatl. We have the most
positive information of this. It de
livers freight within forly miles of
Silver City, while the Atchison road
cannot deliver it any nehrertlian from
one hundred to one hundred and thir
ty miles. The rates charged by the
Southern Pacific are but a very small
percentage of the cost that the fault
finders have been stib'ected to in ic
cciving their freight before the South
ern Pacific roml was built. As to
driving traffic from Silver City, George
town, etc., very little of the traffic of
those sections lias ever come from this
side. In the nature of things, very
little can conic from Ibis bide. The
question f relative rates from San
Francisco and Chicago has very little
to do with il. because the bulk of
freight originates at the East, aud
must first come from there to Califor
nia, paying the cost of twenty-fivo hun
dred miles of rail transportation before
it can be distributed to New Mexico.
Chicago is nearer the terminus of the
Atchison road than' San Francisco,
and the idea that the rates of this com
pany can drive fpjm it whit it never
had, or that the company can make
rates from San Francisco on good3
which originate at Chicago, that
wou'd enable Sihxr City men to buy
in Sau Francisco and lay his goods
down at Silver City a cheaply as ho
buys in Chicago, and lay them down
at the same point, is simply absurd.
The above is Ihe whole matter in a
nut-shell. Those interested had bet
tor nnnder and reflect. If they do.aud
they are men possessing powers of
reasoning, mey muoi eo uiui u .im
majority of the complaints ngainst
the Southern Pacific Railroad in the
matter of delay and excessive charges
arc unjust and unreasonable.
