SATURDAY, - - OCTOBER 26, 1878
The friends of Mr. A. E. Davis
have been greatly surprised by
the rapidity with which public
sentiment is turning- in favor of
his election as Delegate to Con
gress. This change is difficult of
explanation, but its occurrence is
now too palpable to be denied.
His fitness for the position has
never been questioned; but his
friends, for a long time, agreed
with even the opponents of Mr.
Stevens, that the latter gentle
man would control the Territory,
and that other candidates had no
chance of defeating him. It was
conceded that no candidate could
be elected unless he had plenty
of money and would spend it as
if Arizona votes are merchandise,
to be bought and sold! One mouth
ago Mr. Davis could not have
counted on more than fifty votes
in Yuma Countyj to-day his
strength here is formidable, and
is increasing. There is a strong
opposition to Mr. Stevens in Pima
County; for a time this opposition
supported Mr. Campbell, and it
looked as if he might get at least
400 votes m Pima County. Since
then that opposition seems to
have "soured" on Mr. Campbell
for some reason, and has been
favoring Mr. Davis, as the candi
date most likely to beat Stevens.
In other parts of the Territory
the anti-Stevens men are also
showing a disposition to concen
trate their forces in favor of Mr.
The very vindictiveness with
which Mr. Davis is now being as
sailed by the less reputable jour
nals of Arizona, confirms other
indications of his growing
strength. His friends are now
warming up to the work with re
newed confidence that, in the
election of Mr. Davis, principle
is about to gain a substantial vic
tory over money, over misrepre
sentation, and over political man
euvering. Campbell came to Yuma and
staid a week or more, soliciting
citizens to vote for him. He
thought it "smart" to neglect
his dress and person, and to show
the boys that there is nothing
proud or stuck-up about him.
Clean clothes do not make the
man; neither do dirty ones. But
a Delegate in clean clothes, and
with person otherwise conform
ing to the usages of respectable
society, is more likely to receive
recognition at Washington, and
to secure benefits for his Terri
tory. A Justice of the Peace, a
Public Administrator or a Deputy
County Treasurer may rejoice in
dirty clothing without exciting
comment; especially if his grand
intellect be absorbed in poetry
and "reform;" but we do like to
see common cleanliness in a Dele
gate to Congress, the more so
when we know that he has money
and can afford it.
The name of Hon. A. E. Davis,
for Congress, does not appear at
the head of the Sentinel, be
cause this paper has not been
bought and paid for, in that gen
tleman's interest. We have never
approved of " venta'Mng cattle
before the purchase-money was
paid. We note that the other
Territorial papers are branded
with the names of different can
didates; perhaps their money has
been paid. They are trying hard
to earn it; just as an attorney tries
to convince a jury in the interest
of his client. In either case truth
ceems to be taken into account
in proportion to the size of the
The Campbell money has come,
and much of it has already been
disposed of in a manner highly
gratifying to its recipients. Its
distribution has been somewhat
unequal; the "telling" editorials
that have influenced so many
votes here were paid for at a price
ridiculously cheap; on the other
hand, it is said that $75 were paid
for that " poem. " that appeared
in last Saturday's Enterprise,
wherein Campbell's dirty shirt
was immortalized in blank verse
yes; devilish blank.
It is a noteworthy fact that the
Prescott Enterprise never con
tains any unkind comments on
Tucson, or Pima County and its
people, while that paper has a
canvasser down there soliciting

Special Correspondence or the Stock
Florence, Pinal Co., Arizona, )
October 12th, 187S. )
To Editor Sax Francisco Stock Re
tort, San Francisco, Cax.:
Sir Knowing; jour desire for all news
concerning' mines and mining enterprises,
I have concluded to give your readers the
benefit of what I saw on my late trip to
Pioneer and Globe Districts m this
The direct route to Globe City and
District lies via Picket Post and Silver
King mine. From Florence to the King
by daily stage each morning at eight
o'clock, arriving at Picket Post at three
o'clock and Silver King City at five of the
same dav. The road is most excellent
and the stare comfortable for four dol
lars From the King to Globe City saddle
animals arc used and are always in read
iness at reasonable rates by the proprietor
of the Iri weekly express line running
between these two points distance 28
miles over high ranges of mountain and
thrcugh deep and dark canons. Within
the next six months it i3 considered a
fixed fact that a toll road will be built,
thereby making Globe District easy of
access and bringing it and her mining
interests to the front. As it has been and
is now the difficulty of reaching that
district has kept away many worthy people
and much capital. The sentiment at
Florence has been against making this
road because they feared it would give all
the trade of Globe to Picket Post and
make that the capital oi Pinal county,
thereby taking away both from Florence.
But it must be in the natural course of
things, because of benefit to all in this
county and section of Arizona.
The mines of the Globe district are
good as has becu proven already in the
instance of rich and valuable ore ship
ment from the Stonewall Jackson, Iin
peri.il, Llanelly and Silver Nugget, and
others of less note. Quite a number of new
finds have been made of late which will at
the proper time make themselves and
their value known. Coming from this
district towards Florence, there was more
time for a look about at the Silver King
and Picket Post. Around the King quite
a settlement has sprung up, and from
here to Globe all travel is over the Stone
man gradej thus proving that road is not
absolutely valueless. Twenty men are
employed on the Silver King, stoping
down the hill on which the outcrop was
found, and the ore maintaius its richness.
Seven teams are engaged in hauling the
ore to the mill at Picket Post. This morn
ing we were at the mine, it was reported
that King rock had been struck in Ihe
North Kimr, at a depth of US feet. If this
strike is of any magnitude, it will com
pletely demolish the theory that the
King is merely a blowout and will soon
make things in Pioneer district boom.
At Picket Post, six miles down the canon
from the King, the King 10-stamp mill
and the '76 five-stamp are pouudiug away.
The latter mill has been engaged to woik
King ore, and now the Silver King Mining
Company have fifteen stamps running and
the dividends will be correspondingly in
creased. There is certainly ore enough
ou the dumps to keep both mills running
a year and a half. Picket Post is an ac
tive, busy town, pleasantly located and
evidently very prosperous. From a quarry
near by a whitish sandstone rock is ob
tamed, that is so soft when first exposed
as to admit of being chopped by an ax
into blocks, that make haudsorne and
stronsr building material. Some five miles
distant the "Pinal Mill Company's" five
stamp mill is running occasionally on
small lots of custom ore from the Wana
whata," "Eureka" and "Union West"
mines. The "Union West" is making a
splendid showing," having a shaft, down
sixty feet, with a well-defined lead of na
tive silver ore, in appearance more like
the King than anything yet discovered. It
is rumored, that ou November first the
Pinal Milling Company will also commence
cu a contract with the Silver King Com
pany to crush two thousand tons of their
ore. This will probably be done, as, while
others mines here have not sufficient
ore to kept this mill running, the King
can easily furnish work for forty stamps
with th present force now at work.
-The bullion product for the month of
August of the Silver King was 8G,000, and
this from ten stamps. The ore is increas
ing in richness, and when all the mills
in Pioneer district are devoted to crush
ing King ore, that company will he
able to make a showing second to no
silver mine on the Pacific coast. Mr.
Mason, the Superintendent, informed
me that it was the intention of the
Company to erect speedily hoisting
works at the mine and to sink the present
working shaft to the depth of one thousand
fcetTho boiler, engine and machinery
for that purposb arc now on the ground.
The record of the Silver King is well
known, and I can conscienciously certify
from personal observation that the half
has not been told. Success say I to every
enterprise which builds up our Territory
and gives employment to the hardy
The whole .country from Florence to
McMillenville is filling up with a busy,
industrious people who are fast making a
wealthy and prosperous county, and we
feel that henceforward Arizona is to be
known for what sheis--the richest mineral
bearing Territory of the United States.
V arming up to Arizona
The California journals of most in
fluence are warming up to our Territory.
The good words they now almost daily
print are worth something and are bear
ing fruit. They encourage railway build
ers and mining capitalists of better Bort.
A few years ago we had hostile Apaches
within and a hostile press without. Lieut.
Colonel W.B. Hazen dished up Arizona
and New Mexico in the press of New York
about 1S75 in savage style, and in a tone
which conveyed the idea that he had been
unfortunate in some of his private or
public doings down this way, Mr.
Hagar of San Francisco, some years ago
was a United States 3enator, vice Eugene
Casserly, resigned. In Fcbruarj, 1875,
he stood up in the Senate and declared
Arizoua and New Mexico barren wastes;
that this section of country was simply an
arid plain that would not support a duck,
because it had neither grass uor water,
and for other reasons refused to vote for
necessary appropriations for the reserva
tion Indians in this Territory. It was
then apparently popular to belittle and
in every way underrate the natural worth
Amid and in the face of all such power
ful obstacles, the Territory advanced iu
wealth and population on its own merits.
Public school houses and churches have
been built; quarts mills have been erect
ed, and are turning out at the rate of
$6,000,000 annually; the great southern
overland railway's locomotives haul palace
and freight cars within our borders;
blooded horses, cattle, sheep aud hogs
have been introduced in large numbers,
and are thriving; agricultural and horti
cultural products have wonderfully in
creased; neither last and perhaps not least,
we have an ex-Presidential candidate for
Governor; and the outlook in general
never before has been so encouraging. A
railway will soon be extended 200 or
300 miles across the Territory; new
quartz reduction works are being con
structed and contracted for that will, when
completed, increase our product of gold
aud silver to a million dollars each month.
San Francisco, that a few years since
would recognize but little merit in mines
outside of Nevada and California, now
grants Arizona's richness aud wants to
profit by it. Citizen.
KcHoIotions In Favor of the South
Charleston, Oct. SO.
The Chamber ot Commerce, at a meet
ing called to consider the attitude of the
South toward the Southern Pacific Rail
road, and to discuss relative plans for con
structing it, adopted a series of reeolu
tious expressing sympathy with the plan
proposed for building that portion be
tween the Rio Graude and the Colorado
proposed by the Southern Pacific Com
pany of California.
Last week we stated that, out of the
eleven reformers who held the conven
tion at Mr. Shulz's house, six received'
nominations for office. This was a mis
take; eight nominations, instead of six,
were filled out of the public-spirited
eleven. "Tickle me and I'll tickle you."
Honesty and Reform!

as David Neahr, Capt. Polhamus and
others, gives the vote to Woolsey, there

How is it about those three cheers that
were given after Judge Rush's remarks at
the Camubell meeting? A large number of
gentlemen, supporters of Mr, Davis, gave
thera. They claim they were for Davis,
and the Enterprise puts them down for
Campbell. As they were the only cheers
given there can be no mistake in the

Abanuonment of mail service on Route
40,105 has cost ths people of Signal and
McCrackin a loss of thousands of dollars.
It was October 14th before anv one ud
there knew that the McCrackin Company's
drafts for August expenses had been dis
honored at San Francisco, although the
schedule time for mails, when carried, is
about 108 " hours between San Francisco
and Slsrnal. Over $40,000 was naid in
drafts for labor and supplies before any
one there learned that said drafts were
not worth the paper they were written on.
The McCrackin miil was shut down Oct.
ilth; yet it took the news ten days to get
to Yuma 230 miles. Service was aban
doned for over three months of the old
contract on the same route. Did our Del
egate, Mr. Stevens, fret about it? Not
much. Let's vote for him again!
The Mohave sails to-day for Aubrey
and way-landings. She takes all freight
