SATU11DAY, - - - OCTOBER 5, 187S
The Board of Supervisors meets next
G. L. Miller has been appointed post
master at Picket Post.
More tents and provisions have arrived
for the' Southern Pacifie railroad survey
ors. Col. J. M. Bahxey has just received the
biggest stock of new staples that has been
brought in here for years.
Pall goods in great variety, a full stock
began to arrive yesterday at II. S. Fitz- i
gerald tJc Co's. Call and see them.
Over 500 head of fat cattle from the
Colorado river, below Yuma, were driven
to Los Angeles week before last, via San
Diego, by Gabe Allen.
Ix another column u ill be found an ad
vertisement offering for sale the saloon
business of Mr. A. Tyner. This affords
opportunity for a gord investment.
Durixg the summer four crews of rail
road men were run on the trains between
Yuma and Los Angeles. Since October
1st, only three crews have been employed.
Mr. James Qvixiax has" sold out his
wairon and blacksmith business here to
Messrs Horner and Donaldson. It is the
best appointed shop this bide of San Fran
But live new names have been added to
the Great Register of Yuma County du
ring the past three weeks. This looks as
if our citizens take little iitteres"t iri the
Tni: two little pic-nic wagons that Gil
mer, Salisbury & Co., run in and out of
Prescolt are no samples of the tatter-de-mallion
buckboards used by them ou the
rest of the road: not much.
News was received here last Saluroa'j
of the death of James P. Bull, at Mineral
Park, Mohave county. Fitting tribute to
his memory has already been paid by the
press of Arizona, in which we concur.
Company B, Eighth Infantry, arrived
here by rail yesterday morniur. There
were 42 soldiers. This company has al
ready served some four years in Arizona,-
and does not enjoy being ordered back.
Mr J. W. Dorrixgtox announces him
self a candidate for the Council. He is
now apparently without opposition; but
before election some other gentleman nun'
came forward to compete with him for the
"El Froxterizo" is the name of anew
Spanish newspaper, published at Tucson.
That city has uow four newspapers, which
speaks well for its progress. V(Te hope
that field will produce fodder enough to
keep them all fat.
Texts and ammunition have arrived
here for Mr. "Win. Hood, Engineer of the
Western Development Company. This
looks as if he were soon to take the field
again, locating a route for the Southern
Pacific railroad ca&tward from Maricopa
Fresii Eastern Oysters, in the shell, arc
again to appear regularly in the Yuma
market.- Horton has his "stand" in full
working order. The firc-t shipment of the
season was due here on Thursday, but
got switched oil" somewhere between here
and Los Angeles.
Tun Mohave sailed on Wednesday morn
ing at daylight, taking all freight then
here for Aubrey, Ehreuberg and way
landings. There is left here a large quan
tity of salt for the Hackberry quartz mill,
and considerable Ilardyvillc freight, most
of which will go forward by next boats.
"Wm. Finkler, an old" resident and ac
tive prospector of Yuma Count', ib hope
lessly insane. He wilt probably be ex
amined to-aay and connnitUd to the As--lum.
A couple of months ago he struck a
very rich ledge of gold quaitz, but after
leaviug it was unable to find i: again.
This probably capped tbe climax ot hU
disappointments and turned bis' brain.
It is really remarkable that the Indians
have kept out of town . so strictly, after
night-fall, since their, captains had1 the
"big talk" here, about the middle of Au
gust. Till another "Indian Scare" be consid
ered necessary for carrying the county
election? Probably not. It worked both
ways at the Tillage election.
The fechoi)I4rustees have determined to
engage a lady teacher for a six month
term of the public school here. Miss
Abrams has exhibited excellent testimo
nials and references and will probably be
engaged. It is expected that collection of
taxes for the current year will put iuonsj'
enough into the School Fund to sxtsn
guish outstanding indebtedness and' to
partly pay salary for the proposed term.
Mr. Andrew Tvxeh has announced
his candidacy for the office of sheriff. He
has resided many years in this County,and
has creditably discharged the duties of
jailor, deputy-sheriff, undersheriff and
sheriff; having filled the latter position
since the resignation of the late incum
bent. "While wc could wish that the office
should be aspired to by 6ome man with
whom we have had less political and other
differences, we believe that Mr. Tyner will,
if elected, discharge the duties of the
office honestly and efficiently: that belief
makes ub Tilling' to vote for him:
The steamer Mohave arrived from Au
brey and way-landings last Sunday, bring
ing 349 sacks galena ore from Castle
Dome, 23 bales wool from Ehrcnberg and
19 bars silver bullion from" Aubrey. Of
this six bars (4,200) were from the Min
eral Park mill; five bars (G,327) from the
Hackberry; and eight bars (7,251) from
the McCrackin. Mr", n. M. "Wright, Agent
of the Steamboat Company, returned on
her from a tour of inspection.
Yesterday morning there arrived here
by rail twenty horses and mules, five
heavy wagons, one thoroughbrace, hay,
grain, harness; and nearly three tons of
groceries for Mr. Win. nood, surveying
engineer of the "Western Development
Company. This is palpable evidence, at
last, that soinc railroad surveying is about
to be done to the Eastward. It encoura
ges us to look for early and equally good
evidence that construction is to be resum
ed. Mr. nood is due here to-day.
By reference to our advertising columns
it will be seeii that Mr. Samuel Purdy Jr.
has announced his candidacy for the next
Legislature. Many prominent citizens of
this County have signified their approval,
and there is little douot that Mr. Purdy
will be elected. We should like to see
more Republicans coming forward for of
fice, but if the people of Yuma County
choose to ignore National politics, there
is no good reason why the Scntiuel should
stand against the current.
A voracious rattlesnake, with ten rat
tics, was recently killed in front of Wm
Darrow's residence at Jdie Murks &Darrow
mine. illiani's curiosity and suspicions
were aroused by the extraordinary "round
ed embonpoint" or queer little hump in
the maw of her snakesbip. He (bought she
had swallowed a keg of giant powder, and
proceeded cautiously to dissect her. It
turned out to be a young turke' with fea
thers at least five inches long. The tur
key's he-id was bigger then the snake's.
The nako must have gobbled tbe turkey
at Rawhide, and traveled with it a mile, as
no one short of that distance keeps the
gallinaceous fowl. Tuolumne Indepen
dent. Auoi t two years ago, "old Dud" who
founded the Dudley House at Prescott,
performed a remarkable feat. lie was re
turning from California by stage and,
when within a short distance of Prescott,
he concluded he would look better if he
reached town deaii-shaved. So he got
out razor, brush, strop and soap. Then,
with water from a canteen, he proceeded
to lather and shave himself; making a first
rate job of it, without looking glass and
while the c'tage was in rapid motion1 over
the rocky and mountainous roads near
Prescott. His fellow-passengers duly ad
mired and related his dexterity; though
the incident lias r.eTer before got into
The Steam "Wag ox. We learn from
the Colusa Sun that tlfS steam Wagon, be
longing to the San Josiquin Compai.y,
made a round trip from' Princeton to Wil
lows. The writer was at Princeton, last
Tuesday, when it came in -.villi a load of
wheat. It was loaded with 20 tons of
wheat by J. S. "Wall, but the rods connect
ing the wagons broke just before it got to
Princeton, and they had to come in with
only two wagons. It was a day and a half
gettinsr in from "Willows, but there was no
heater on the boiler, and there were seve
ral other deficiencies noticed, but Capt.
Roberts,- who wo with the wagon all the
while, is entirely satisfied that it is' a suc
cess, and he says the Company will imme
diately invest 00,030 more in the manu
facture of the wagons, and in wagons to
carry the freight. They took the wheat
from Willows to tire ship side at San Fran
cisco at 3 a ton, the same as charged by
the railroad to Vallejo.
Good. SEintM for Tituly Travelers.
A correspondent of the Chicago Tri
bune, in vifcw of tiie difficulties and' clifn-
gcrs encountered by ladies traveling alone,
suggests that they should observe the fol
1. Before starting on a journey,, fami
liarize yourself with the route, and with
names of good hotels at the various stop
2. Never travel with just enough money
but always carry enough to provide for
any possible emergency. This will save
3. "Wear bnt little jewelry, and keep
the larger part of your money in some in
side pocket, out of sight.
4. Always look after yuur3elf, and do
not allow a stranger to procure your ticket
or Checks for your baggage.
5. AToid, if possible, making changes
in car by night, but, when unavoidable, go
witti others. Do not become separated
from the crowd.
fi. Take no hacks, but go in an omnibus
where there are other people. These are
7. Ii in any doubt as to changing cars,
checKing baggage, etc., inquire in advance
of the conductor. The conductors on our
trains are al ways polite and willing to be
of scrvide, especially to women traveling
S. Da not wait till about to make some
change in trains before inquiring of the
conductor, for, ten to' one, he will then be
hurried and you will half inform yourself;
0. Under all circumstances endeavor
to retain presence of mind. One who can
do this will have no trouble traveling, and
instead of its being unwise for women to
travel alone, 1 think it an advantage for
them to make trips alone, for there are
few people who are not at times obliged
to do so, ard experience does away with
much of tbe possible dangeY in traveling.
