shibell were 103 votes purporting to
l),ive been cast at the election precinct
known as San Simon, all of which
vote the complainant avers were ille
gal and not given by qualified elec
tors of said county of Pima; that no
election was held or conducted at said
urcclnct by any appointed or elected
inspector and judges of election, or by
nnv officer or officers authorized by
law to ho'd or conduct the same, and
i hat the returns therefrom are wholly
liotitious; that the names of Henry
Johnston (as inspector) and George
Jioss ias judge were fictitious; that
ii'.ucU persons partici nted at such
election, nor were the persons whoso
names are appended to said pretended
Hiurns citizens of or residents in the

Jong time previous, nor were any of
iliem appointed or chosen thereto or
won in as officers of said election,
nor were the votes which appear by

n'.fo. that at the duly established pre

ceived 17 votes and Shibell 5 vote3,
but that the officers of said precinct
;aiied to send the full returns to the
Board of Supervisors, by reason
whereof the Board was unable to in
t iude taid vote in its estimates: that at

I Judges were guilty ot malconduct,
inasmuch as during the progress of
the count of the votes they permitted
a person not an officer of election, one
Burdett, to take a considerable num
ber of ballots out of the box for the
ostensible purpose of assisting in the
counting of the same and to erase
from 27 of the ballots.beforc the same
were counted, the name ot contestant,
in whose favor said ballots had been
i i-t. who thereby lost the same; that
m addition to the 27 votes so erased,
thi judges failed to count 23 votes cast
r complainant; that in addition to
.b ive statement, 100 illegal votes were
i-t and counted for Shibell; that
r ritet-tant received the highest num
ber of votes, and he therefore contests
il..: election of Shibell on that
ground, and prays that the election of
v.'ubell be nnnulled and set aside,
and that contestant be.declarcd duly
elected to the office of Sheriff of Pima

A. W. Osboek, G. W. Atkinson,
Yesterday morning about 2 o'clock,
Jo'n Everetts, a partner of Murphy
in the saloon business, shot and killed
a Mexican, whose name could not be
learned, under lhe following circum
stances : Mr. ETeretts and Mrs. Hat
tie Green were occupying a room in
the tent in the rear of the Palace Ho
tel , and at the hour named were awak
ened by some one cutting the tent and
entering the room. Everetts kept
quiet, and observed the robber pick
up Mrs. Green's clothing and throw
itoutoftheslitin the canvass. He
returned and ransacked Everett's
clothes, after which he sat down on a
chair. Everetts then took his revol
ver from under his pillow and covered
the villain, who drew a long knife and
advanced, whereupon Everetts fired
two ehots and the Mexican dropped
and afterwards crawled out of the
tent, where he died immediately. No
blame is attached to Everetts, the gen
eral verdict being "served him right."

The Ilrllliant Display "ow IJeliiffMade
ai xne uoneroA-ntreet .leweirj aiur
In tho general desire to make beau
tiful and brilliant Holiday displays,
Mr. J. M. Berger, tho jeweler, stands
well in the front. His store ou Con
gress street has been recently refitted
in an elegant manner and with an es
pecial view to a better display of that
ever attractive class of goods-jewelry.
The show window in this city where
attractive &how windows are tho excep
tion never fails to arrest the atten
tion ot the passer-by with its tasteful
arrangement; and after an inspection
which finds much to admire, from the
general appearance of the window to
the handsome swinging clock which
ticks the passing moments in one cor
ner, the wide entrance and pleasant
interior make a continuance of the
Journey up or down the street impos
sible until a closer peep is had at the
pretty articles displayed in the inter
ior. The first thing which attracts the
attention of the visitor on entering is
the great variety or the large stock or
clocks. Clocks little, clocks big,
clocks round, clocks three-cornered,
clocks for the school-room, the hall,
the pnrlor, the miner's cabin. All
wound up, they produce a whirr of
ticks that is by no means unpleasant.
The good housewife admires the ad
mirably arranged and large case of
table silver service; the young lady
heaves a wishful sigh over the blaz
ing diamond tray; tho youth gazes
longingly at the grand array of
watches, anl the " visitor from the
East " is captivated by the exquisite
Mexican filigree gold work. Of this
latter class of goods Mr. Berber makes
a specialty, and his stock is one of the
best selected to be found in any city.
Residents of Arizona can find no more
appropriate or acceptable presents to
send to their friends " back homo "
than this beautiful gold filigree work.
In fact, all who contemplate the pur
chase of Christmas presents and who
does not? should visit Mr. Bergcr's
handsome jewelry store on Congress
street, and if they do not find some
thing to suit them, then it will bo
their own and not Mr. Berger's fault.
.llnre Iluwllderlni; Enterprise.
The Citizen is never so happy as
when it can mako record of the con
tinually recurring and blinding enter
prises of its truly great morning con
temporary, the Star. This morning
another great meteor took station in
the bright milky (and not watery) way
of the stair of the popular educator
" over beyant " in the alley. It is this
time a scientific editor who joins the
thickening ranks of the staff, already
numbering in its serried hosts land
grant editors, " funny " men no end,
scrap-book editors, verse carpenters,
essayists, gush-artists, tramp spec
ialty writers, and last, but by no
means least, a scientist! The latter
this morning effectually disposes of
paralliue (after haying, presumably,
got away with all the benzine in
sight) and uives electric science a
herculean boost. But It is a little too
bad that he should hayc wound up his
delightful prize article with such a
phrase as, " We shall await anxiously
for further developments of this in
vention," for It imposes on tho Citi
zen the awlul duty or disclosing when
and whence these " developments "
will come. They will arrive next
week in a yellow envelope from n
'scientific bureau" in Maine (ye
gods!), and they will cost the Star
just 25 cents (American money, not
" adobes"). The same identical " sci
entific notes" were offered the Citi
zen office by mail, but the financial
resources of this highly moral and
religious family journal could not
stand the expense, two bits a week,
and so it was left for the truly great
Star to tako up the neglected cause
or paralline and science in this ancient
aud honorable pueblo. The series of
scientific articles thus inanguratcd
make delightful local items, and only
need the accompaniment of a patent
' Washington special correspondence"
to complete the ensemble. As the
latter costs only tour bits a week,
without doubt our enterprising con
temporary will undertake the fright
ful expense forthe benefit ot this awe

THE OKLAHOMA EXPEDITION.
The Colonist Kapidlv Degenrratins
Into a Mob.
Hcnnewell, Kansas, December 13.
There has been no change in the
position of the Oklahoma settlers and
the soldiers. They arc camped facing
each other, with an imaginary lino
that separates the State from the Ter
ritory between them. Reports that
largo numbers were entering the Ter
ritory rrom other points caused great
dissatismction among the colonists.
They would say: " We arc holding
the army while" other parties are coiug
in and getting all the best land." The
excitement was increased when a com
mittce, headed by the Mayor of Cald
well, came over and invited the col
ony to come to that place, ollering
camp-grounds, wood, etc. This should
have been a starting point, as Okla
homa is directly south. A report
which the Caldwell party brought,
that from five to ten teams were going
in anily, brought matters to a head,
and the settlers declare that they will
remain in camp no longer. The offi
cers at first held an almost military
control over the settlers, but in the
last day or two they have ceased to
exercise any influence or control over
them, and they are fast degenerating
into an uncontrollable mob, and un
less something is done to restore dis
cipline, a conflict may be brought on
at any time. The settlers labor under
the delusion that under no circum
stances will the soldiers fire on them.
The good judgment of Colonel Cop-
pingcrand .Lieutenant iuason 01 tne
Fourth Cavalry is the only thing that
has prevented a conllict. The Col
onel and Lieutenant have walked
about with the men, reasoned with
them, and won the respect of every
settler. This conduct was done more
to restrain the men than anything else.
So completely beyond the control of
the officers were the settlers getting
that something bad to be done. A
meeting was called and Dr. Robert
Wilson, or Texas, was appointed a
committee to go to Washington to pee
the President and congress as to
whether something cannot be done at
onco to relieve the critical situation
on the border. The colony has men
in it Trom Oregon, Michigan, Illinois,
Kentucky and Ohio, and it seems to
be widespread in organization, as hun
dreds or letters are received at head
quarters each day asking when they
shall come. There are fears among
the conservative part of the colony
that when Dr. Wilson leaves, as he is
the old. cool head of the party, the
officers will be powerless to control
Xew Yokk, Docember 18. The
electric light has ag .in taken posses
sion of tho public mind. Edison, the
well-known inventor, says: "I am
preparing a test for the subdivision of

it all ready. I am already satisfied
and wish to show the gentlemen who
are to put their money in this thing
its practical workings before they
take further steps. There is to Iw no
guess work about it. We will know
exactly the cost of everything before
we go ahead. Because 1 have been a
few months perfecting this thing, the
public said I had failed. They for
got that thero are millions of dollars
invested in gas, and they must not ex
pect one little Jerseyman to revolu
tionize the light of the world and
render all this capital useless. The
light produced is better and cheaper,
and these are two qualities shat will
kill gas. Besides, there is no dirt
from my light, no danger from escaped
gas or combustion. The light Is an
incandescent, simple light, produced
by the impact of electric particles
upon carbon. Il is a clear, steady,
uulllckcring blaze, and does not pos
sess those disngiceable properties
which the public have come to asso
ciate with the idea of the electric
light gained from those distressingly
glaring balls which you see sus
pended in front of theatres and other
buildings. Tho difficulty has hitherto
lain in the subdivision. A great many
writers upon the subject have declared
this impossible, but it is not. I have
proved it. Electric light may bo fur
nished at a cost of something like
$300,000,000 less than it would cost by
the original method. I calculate that
New York City can be lighted by my
method at a cost of something like
.$2,000,000, which is a very reasonable
amount. My light will be perfected
before a great while. 1 am working
very hard now."
A Camel' ItovmiKi.
A valuable camel, working in an
oil-mill in Africa, was badly" beaten
by its driver. Perceiving that the
camel had treasured up the injury,
nnd was only waiting a favorable op
portunity for revenge, he kept strict
watch upon tho animal. Time passed
away; the animal, perceiving that it
was watched, was quiet and obedient,
aud the driver began to think that the
benting was forgotten, when one
night, after tho lapse of several
months, the man was sleeping on a
raised platform in the mill, while, as
is customary, the camel was stabled
in a corner.
Happening to awake, the driver ob
served by the bright moonlight that,
when all was quiet, the animal looked
cautiously around, rose softly, aud
stealing toward the spot where a bun
dle of clothes and a bernous, thrown
carelessly on the ground, resembling
a sleeping figure, cast itself with vio
lence upon them, rolling with all its
weight, and tearing them most vic
iously with his teeth. Satisfied that
his revengo was complete the camel
was returning to his place m the stall
when the driver at up and spoke. At
the sound of his voice, and perceiving
the mistake it had made, the animal
was so mortified at the failure and
discovery of its scheme that it dashed
its head against the wall and died on
Mexico's New Government.

" We're bavin some pretty wintrish
weather," said old Daddy Wother
spoou to Uncle Sammy Honniwell, as
the two gentlemen met near the City
Hall yesterday. ' Right for'ard
weather for this season."
'list so; jist so;' conceded Uncle
Sammy. Reminds me of the fall of
1S5J1. It commenced 'long the fore
part of November aud froze still' till
March. Good, smart weather, too.
I remember that it was so cold in
Brooklyn that November that bilin'
water lrozc over a hot lire."
Daddy Wotherspoon looked at him
and braced himself. " Yes, yes," said
he, " I mind it well. That's the fall
the milk froze in the cows. But the
cold season was in 1827. It com
menced in the middle of October and
ran through April. All the oil froze
in the lamps and we didn't have a
light till spring set in."
" Ay, 33', responded Uncle Sammy,
growing rigid. I walked 140 miles
due cast from Sandy Hook on the ice
and slid back, owing to the convexity
or the earth, you know. It was down
hill comin' this way. But that wasn't
as cold as 1821. That season com
menced In September, nnd the mcr
dury didn't rise a decree until May.
Don't you remember how we used to
breathe hard, let it freeze, cut a hole
in it and crawl in for shelter? You
haven't forgotten that?"
" Not I," said Daddy Wotherspoon
after a short pause. " " That's the
winter we used to give the horses
melted lead to drinK, an' keep a hot
fire under 'cm so it wouldn't harden
till they got it down. But that was
nothin' to the spell of 1817. We be
gan to feel it in the latter part of
August an' she boomed htiddy until
the 80th of June. I got through tho
whole spell by living in an ice-house.
It was too cold to go out doors, an' I
jist camped in an ice-house. You re
member the season of 1817! That's
the winter wo wore undershirts or
sand-paper to keep up a friction."
"Well, I should say I did,,' re
torted Uncle Sammy. "What! re
member 1817? 'Deed I do. That was
the spell wheu it took a steam grind
stone four days to light a match. Ay,
ay! But do you know that I was un
comfortably warm that winter?"
" How so?" deranuded Daddy
Wotherspoon, breathing hard.
" Runnin' round your ice-house to
find out where you got in. It was an
awful spell, though. How long did
it last? From August till the 50th of
June? I guess you're right But you
mind the snap of 1S13, don't you? It
commenced the first of Jul and went
around and lapped over a week. That
year the smoke froze in the chimneys
and we had to blast it out with dynam
ite. I think that was the worst wc
ever had. All the clocks froze so we
didn't know the time foraj'ear, and
when men used to set fire to their
buildin's so as to raise the rent. Yes,
indeed. I got $8,000 a month for
lour burnin buildin's. There was a
heap of sufferin' tint winter, because
we lived on alcohol aud phosphorous,
ttll the alcohol froze, and then we eat
the brimstone ends of matches and
jumped around till they caught firo
But Daddy Wotherspoon had fled.
The statistics were too much for him.
Under the new law passed last Jau
uary, the assessment work on all
claims upon which the work (under
the old law) became due after the 22d
day ol' Januar-, 18S0, was extended to
January l.l&tl; or, in other words,
tne assessment work should be done
on or before the 1st of January next.
This applies to all claims located since
1872 aud up to January 22, 18S0. The
assessment work on mining claims
located since that dale becomes due
January 1, 18i2. Prospectors and
miners should see to it that the assess
ment work on all the old locations is
done on or before New Year's day.
In addition to the above, claim,
owners should also remember that
assessment work done on a claim last
j'ear will not cover this year's assess
ment work. For instance, if a miner
located a claim in June, 1879, and did
the assessment work in that year, he
will still have the assessment work to
do this year. In other words, assess
ment work on all claims located in
1S71) at! be done- in 1880, whether
work was done on such claims in 1870
Cihcaoo, December 12. The Times'

from the lips of a Special Mail Agent
It seems that a German editor of Phil
adelphia wrote the President stating
that he took no Press dispatches, and
wanted the message mailed direct.
The message was sent out on rriday
as third-class matter, with a note on
the corner of the envelope to deliver
only on Monday. A Gerniau distrib
utor did not notice tne instructions,
and threw the document into the ed

job, thrust the message into his pock

Lack of Kniployweut.
Couk, December 17. Thero is a

the Earl of Cork was requested to pro

Charlville, County Cork, and he has
just intimated that he will open works
in that locality and give employment
until March 1881.
London, December 17. The fol
lowers ol the government are embar
rassed, and for the most part do not
know what to say, while rew are bold
enough to express their regret at the
line of policy their leaders have pur
sued. While Brett, one of the most
respected Liberals in the House oi
Commons, was speaking at Bedford,
last night, he described vividly the
reljn of terror that had left no honest
callinc safe in a lari;e part of Ireland,
nnd avowed his feeling that a sad time
had conio when the government might
be compelled to use coercion. Thero
have been Liberal Governments before
the present Government embarrassed
by the Irish dimculties, nut they have
not been slack to do what they could
to assert tho authority of the law. The
contrast between the spirit of those
times and the spirit prevailing now is
little credit to the government or that
or present generations. One of the
worst evils consequent upon the
Government's attitude is the cll'ect it
must have upon a popular reception
in Ireland of their remedial legisla
tion. On to I. una.

Chilean loss at thrice mat numuer.
A Letter from General Sherman.
New Yoiik, Decamber 17. Gen.
Sherman writes to a friend here as
" Lest you and my personal friends
may be disturbed by the stories again
put in jcirculation in consequence or
the recommendation in the President's
messnije to make Gen. U- S. Grant
Captain-General, I will explain my
case to you. When Gen. Grant was
nominated for President in the first
instance, in 18G3, he volunteered to
me the opinion that when his term
was out he would not desire to regain
command of the army, as It would be
unjust to me. I have never heard
him say a word to Indicate a change
in that opinion, nnd I do not believe
that either he or his friends suggested
the President's idea or the Captain
General, or of regaining a place on the
arm- retired list. There is no reason
why Presidents may not be retired as
well as the members or the Supreme
Court. Gen. Hancock, when a candi
date Tor President in June last, used
this laneuacein a privnte letter to me.
To surrender the position or Senior
JIojor-Genoral is not a thing to do,
I could not even retire m such con
tingency with the benefits attached to
such action, tor the uoramanuer-in-Chicrof
the Army could be on the re
tired list of any service. As to my
retiring, you know that I will not be
G2 years old until 1882, and the rumor
of my intending voluntarily to retire
grew out or an expressed aesire to
manage so as to bring Gen. Sheridan
to Washington and thus leave three
military divisions for the three
Major-Generals now on the army rcg
i ister, but as President Hayes has
indicated a new fourth commission tor
Major-Gencral Schofleld, that pressure
has passed, and I am in no manner
committed as to m.v luture action
The service is embarrassed with too
much rank already for our small
army, I don't know what a Captain
General will find to do. There never
was such an offlco in tho United States
and it will need legislation to create
and deflna such an ofice.
