Judge .Murphy yesterday, in deciding

Harclav Henley, foreman of the grand
jury, said today: "I regard Judge
M irphy's decision as a judicial outrage,
and as an unlawful attempt to set aside

twt to discuss the matter, but wo will
ignore the decision as if it had not been

San Jose, Oct. 2. Intelligence has
been received at the sheriff's office In
this city from the authorities nt Ann
Harbor. Mich., that extradition papers
for William M. Beggs, who is wanted in
San Jose for embezzlement, have been
refused, tho oflicers thero not, deeming
that thoy had any authority to grant n
requisition for bucIi an otleiise. This
technicality will prevent the offender
from being brought here nnd prosecuted.
lSeggs is accused of swindling a rancher
near Alma named T. N. Newell out of
his property, worth about $3000. Newell
and his wife allege that lieggs repre
sented he owned eome valuable lots in
Tulare, and also held a promissory noto
given him by a financially reliable man
of that place. Newell did not investi
gate, but took lieggs' word for it all.
Under the bupposition that ho was get
ting a fair return for his ranch, which is
supposed to be worth about $3000.
Nowell traded evenly for the lots and
the note. Ho and his wife gave Deggs a
deed for the ranch and took in return
the lots and the note. Subsequently
Newell found that he had been victim
ized. He discovered that the lots alto
gether were worth but a few hundre'd
dollars. Ho demanded of lieggs that he
trade back, but the latter refused.
Newell then brought a eivil action
agvinst Bcggs, but a few days ago this
action was dropped, as tlie defendant is
not responsible, and at present is not a
tesidetit of tho state. The criminal pro
ceedings will probably now also have to

THE FOR TER MINE.
SHU Secretly Searched for by Those Who
IfnrC a Clue.
Way back in '78, when the railroad
terminus was at Yuma, and tho re
porter was a hnif-fledged tenderfoot in
Arizona, a time-hardened prospector
strayed into Phojnix from tho country
lying south of the stage station nt .Mari
copa Wells, and created quite a flury
among tho transient population of
miners and prospectors by exhibiting
about twenty.five pounds of ore appar
ently composed of galena and sulphur
ets in equal parts. Hon. De Forest
Porter, of honored memory, nnd nt that
time diPtrict iudiro of the third iudicial
district of Arizona, had tho ore reduped
ny joeiorterie, xypq pronounced it a
mass of argentite nnd gnlenite as
saying 2q per cent of silver.
The "prospector explained that tho
ore was part of a boulder of "float" that
he hud found in the drv range thirty
miles south of the etage station, and
that as he was suffering for water at
the time he did not try to trace uji the
Judge Porter staked the man forth
with with what clothing and provisions
he needed and started him off on his
little old horse to find the rich deposit.
The propector never returned, and
ufter several months had nassed it
was concluded that he had died on the
desert, and the matter was forgotten
until several years later the skeleton of
a man was found in the foothills of the
Vekol range near an old dry water tank.
From the finding of the remains sev
eral prospectors thought they had aclue
to the silver deposit, and many narties
scoured the surrounding country with no
Bui-cess, nt occasional intervals since
that time Indians have brouehtin spec
imens of the same ore, and it is evident
l.n, !.. .l.n. ..!! 1. I .t .
luui. iii umi vicinity somewnere mere is
a fabulously rich silver mine.
Two weeks ago, as was published at
that time in The Rei-uhlican, an Indian
brought some of the identical ore to
Pha-nix, and, as was stated at the
time, a Mexican endeavored to have
tne Indian guide him to the spot where
ho found the ore. Tho Indian, after
starting with him, turned back and re
fused to go any further. The latest
phase of the question is that two days
ago the same Mexican started out alone
to find the treasure that he is sure
exists for him in those blue mountains
south of the railroad.

Phoenix yesterday after two months of
wanderings through various mountain
ranges nnd deserts of Arizona Most of
their time was spent on and about the

acres in extent. That the weather was
cold up there goes without saying. The
altitude of these peaks was estimated
years ago at 8000 feet, but this is mani
festly incorrect, and their true altitude
is probably 10,000, feet, a,t least,
