Taking tho facts set forth in tho
report of tho grand jury, tho lottor
of Wells Spioer, and tho communi
cation of "Observer," that appear
in this morning's EriT.vrii, a text is
presented "upon which there is littlo
or no need of comment. The roportof
the. grand jury is based upon sworn
facts, .thereforo incontrovertible.
The letter received by Judge Spicer
speaks for itself, and as the work of
an assassin. Tho communication
from "Observer" is correct in its con
clusions, so far as wo aro able to
judge. The very fact that Frank
Leslie and Judge Moses were the re
cipients of an open postal card with
the warning to leave, denotes that
there was no seriousness intended by
the sender. That does not lessen
the heinousness of the offense, how
over, and no pains should be spared
in ferreting out the miscreant who
sont them, and make an example of
of him or them, theroby showing
those of his ilk that they will not be
permitted to insult and intimidate
honest and respectiblo people in
this manner. If there is to be a
change for the better in Tombstone
there must be entire unanimity of
action upon this question. The pal
liation of crimes of this sort is littlo
less heinous than tho actual porpe
tration of them. It is reported that
Judge Moses, feeling insecure in his
person and possessions, has taken
his family and gone with them to
California. This, if true, is to bo re
gretted. Our business men ought
to have assured him, in unmistakable
terras, of their sympathy and support,
and should have prevailed upon him
to remain. Tho loss of one or two
such men, from such a cause, is moro
disastrous to the business intrests of
Tombstone than would be a fire that
would wipe out one of tho best
blocks in tho oity. Tho attempted
assassination of the mayor of Tomb
stone, the threat of assassination of a
commissioner of tho United States
and justice of tho peace, and tho
warning ,of two prominent citizens to
leavo town, in one week, is just a
little-too' mubh to be borno with
The "Laughing Hyena," otherwise
known as the Nugget, claims to have
"nailed" a lie in tho statement made
to an EriTArn reporter by a gentle
man from Galeyville, as to tho con
dition of affairs in that place. We
did not vouch for the truth of the
statements mado at the time, nor
did we claim to have1 received tho
particulars from Mr. Rodig, who
comes out in a card denying the
same; but since tho statement was
made we have learned from reliable
persons cognizant of the facts, that
it was true in every essential particu
lar. They would not allow their names
to bo used, however, as they feared
their lives would be taken if they
circulated reports derogatory to tho
cow-boys and their friends. In jus
tice to Mr. Rodig we will stato that
we did not receive one word of in
formation from him, nor would we
expect it, for ho lives in a very ex
posed situation, and ho would be
murdered in cold blood in less than
forty-eight hours if ho told all he
knew about tho rustlers. Let tho
"Laughing Hyena" grin at this.

Editors EriTAPii: Quite a number of
anonymous letters, ordering people to
leave town in quick order, have been re
ceived by citizens of Tombstone. If tho
writer of these missives is in earnest, it is
a serious mattor and deserves the immedi
ate attention of the community in feretting
out and punishing the guilty parlies. But,
knowing many of tho persons who have
received such letters, we are satisfied there
is nothing serious intended, and if we
are correct in our supposition, the onlv
solution ot the matter is, that it is tlie
work of some "boys" who aro fond of a
good joke and desire a hearty laugh at the
expense of their neighbors. If we are
correct in this supposition, we would sug
gest to tho boys mat while it may amuse
thera it is exceedingly damaging to our
city and mining interests, and the sooner
they stop it the better.
Our knowledge of tho men who have
received such letters will not justify the
belief that they arc imitating the custom
house officer in New Orleans who procur
ed a man to shoot at him in order to gain
the sympathy of congress and the people
Scnerally. Such tilings are sometimes
one, but in this case we arc satisfied it is
nothing more nor less than a desire to have
some fun. The people here aro not just
now in a condition to enjoy it.

WEEKLY MINING REPORT.

DESCRIPTION OF THE GIRARD MILL.
Ten Unyw Mill Add Twenty Htnmps
to the IVoituetlve Capacity
of Our Cam p.
C Irani Mill.
In ten days more a trial of the machinery
will bo made at the Qirard mill, and about
the 10th of January it will be started up
on tts regular work. This is the lirst mill
that has been built in Tombstone, all the
others, with tho exception of the Hopkins
mill (5 stamps) at Watcrvale, being located
on the San Pedro. The mill is of 20
stamp capacity, with 10 pans, 5 settlers and
1 agitator. The location of the mill is in
the north face of the round hill between
the hoisting works and the ofllco, and
stands considerably above the level of the
shaft, and distant therefrom in a direct
line about 150 yards. This location was
chosen in order to utilize the deep ravine
below for a tailing reservoir. The ore will
be run in cars on a tramway up to Iho top
of the mill ann be dumped into a large ore
bin, from whence it will nass to the rock
breaker and thence into the automatic
feeders that deliver it under the stamps.
From the stamps the pulp flows into the
settling tanks, and thence in the usual
method through the pans for amalgama
tion, the settlers to separate the amalgam
from the pulp, anil into the agitator, where,
by application of plenty of fresh water,
whatever remaining quicksilver there may
be in the pulp is washed out andsvred.
From the agitator the tailings flow into
the reservoir, where it will remain for
months, an'l may be years, to oxidize by
contact with the atmosphere and inter
mixture ot the chemicals used in amalga
mation, 'thus fitting the pulp to yield up,
in rewotking, the sma'.l percentage of the
precious metals that escaped in the first
Tho motive power is a direct-acting en -gine
of 80-horse power. It was built by
Frazcr & Chalmers of Chicago. The
steam is generated in two immense boilers
set in solid brick masonry. The setting
is the linest piece of masonry we havo
seen around Tombstone. By the arrang
ment of a concave ashpit which opens
into a large sewer that debouches into the
ravine below the mill, whenever it becomes
necessary lo clear out the ashes in tile pit a
a stream of water is turned upon them and
they flow away through the sewer without
tho least inconvenience or litter upon the
hearth and no danger of communiccting
fire to the building.
Tho most important improvement to
whicli our attention was called by Mr.
Scott, superintendent of construction, is
the Llewcllcn heater that supplies water to
the boilers. This heater is about 3 feet in
diameter by 10 in height, and resembles
an upright boiler. About 3 feet from the
bottom is a cast grating with meshes
about one inch in diameter upon which is
piled small rock several feet high. At the
bottom of the heater the exhaust pipe
from tho engine enters, filling the heater
with steam. At the top, the water is in
jecled in the form of spray upon the heated
rocks and percolates through them to the
point of discharge into the boilers. It is
claimed for this heater that it economizes
fuel and prevents scaling in the boilers,
which is so great an annoyance when tho
water contains any of the mineral salts.
Both claims are well founded, in our
opinion. That it will work a saving in
fuel needs no argument to prove, and that
tho water falling in spray upon the heated
rocks will yield up its mineral constitu
ents, which will adhere to the rocks,
seems perfectly philosophical. That such
is the case, Mr. Scott says has been attested
by his personal examination of boilers
that had been fed from such heater for
ten months, and he found no signs of foul
ing. The water leaves the heater at 210
degrees Fahrenheit, or two dcgrcei below
the boiling point.
When this mill commences lo run regu
larly the bullion output will be augmented
by about $75,000 per month, and will give
employment, at the mine and mill, to fro-u
75 to 100 men, wltich will add materially
to the business and prosperity of our city.
Tombstone .11. & 31. Co.
The Combination workings send to the
mill 50 tons per day. The stopes in this
part of the mine look particularly well and
bid fair to keep up their present yield lor
a long time. The Northwest workings are
improving from day to day. A good deal
of development work is being done at this
point. Ship four loads per week from this
point. West Side maiu shaft is do. vn 240
feet. At 78 feet have drift running both
north and south along the ledge which,
though not large, is uniform. The ledge
is vertical so far as developed. The last
wagon sample gave 252 ounces to the toil.
Ship two loads per week to tho mills from
this mine. At the Goodenough main
works, iue diifllng on the 300 foot level,
both e ut and west, to cut the ore bodies
that exist above. The-stopes here look
well and famish two loads per day, which
coulu be doubled if necessary with the
additional labor of a few moro-men. The
outlook for this company was never
brighter. Tho development work is kept
well ahead at all points. Where six months
ago it was hard work to keep the mills
supplied, it is now done with case, with
reserves to draw upon far into the future.
Main shaft 400 feet ceep, being CO feet
below the 400-foot level. For the last 00
feet they have encountered several small
veins of ore, which indicates the near ap
proach to an ore oody. The west cross-cut
on the 300-foot level is in 350 feet, with in
dications of being in close proximity
to the ledge. The upraise from tho 200
level is up 83 feet and will connect with
the 100 within a day or two. Drift on the
100 has 50 feet to run to connect with the
upraise. Havo connected the winze from
the 100 with the stopes in the old works.
At the old works they expect to inter
sect the winze from tho 400 with '.lie 500
west cross-cut this week. The COO cross
cut is in 100 feet. Stopes semewhat im
proved since last report. The west lateral
is yielding very high grade ore. The track is
nearly completed from the main shaft to
the new ore house. HoUting ore will
commence at tills point shortly. Th'egen
eral condition of the mine is highly sails
factory to all connected with it. During
the absence of Mr. C. W. Leach, Mr. John
P. Shaughncssy is acting foreman nt the
Still timberin g on the 400 level. It will
take from two to three weeks to finish this
necessary work winze on thU level down
35 feet on the ledge, which looks- fine.
Flora Morrison shaft down 55 feet below the
400 level. Tho stopes all looking well and
yielding their usual amount of ore of the
grade heretofore worked during the present
year. Of lato there has been a perceptible
increase in the percentage of gold in the
ore. Hitherto it lias been from 1G to 20
pcr'cent ot the value, but now it will reach
23 to 21 per cent. This mine lias been
noted for some very rare specimens of cf
florescent gold, sometimes perfectly be
spangling the surface of the ore, and occa
sionally being deposited on a surface of
horn silver. This variety of gold has not
been found, to our knowledge, outside the
Contention lode. As no new development
work is being done other lhan at the Flora
Morrison shaft, nothing out of the ordin
ary way can be expected at present. When
stoping tho great ore body on the 400 level
begins, we shall look for great results.
This is the largest solid body of ore that
has ever been developed in the district, if
not the territory, anil, as Col. Sellers would
say, " There's millions in it."
Some of the principal promoters of the
water company organized in Philadelphia
to supply waler for mechanical purposes
from the drainage ot the Sulphuret mine
arc looked for in Tombstone within a few
days. The Girard mill is to be supplied
from this source, therefore operations will
have to be resumed soon.
Woronoco, (Sail Diego,) Mining Co.
AVork on the different levels has been
carried on as usual. A small body of car
bonates was struck in the shaft during the
week, and quite a pocket of ore has been
taken out of a drift running south from
the upraise on the 130 feet level. The drill
and cross cuts are looking well.
Superintendent Farrell feels confident
that they have got the Contention lode in
the new shaft southeast of Lie main works.
They are drifting for it on ihe water level,
at a depth of 405" feet from the surface.
We shall expect rich developments when
the ledge is cut upon this leyel.
This is a location near the Bronkow
mine. There is a 20-foot shaft on the
ledge, which is two feet wide. Ore from
the ledge has assayed as follows: $100.50,
$20, $25.C0 and $03. This is a good show
ing for the depth attained.
Work, after a long suspension, has been
resumed under the superintendence of L.
M. Pearlman, Esq., who arrived last Wed
nesday. The present contract is for 20 feet
of shaft. This is said lo be a good prospect.

A Tale of Murder., Hi

FULL T13XT OFTIIK ltKI'Of
To the Hon. W. H. Stillwell. Judire
the First Judicial District. Territory o
anziiuu: x our granu jury, alter a some
what protracted session in the examina
tion of evidence relating to charges ol
crime and offenses against the law of va
rious grades beg leavo to submit our tlnal
report to the Honoiublc Court.
At the conclusion of our labors we
would report its summary as follows:
Four indictments for murder. Fifteen
indictments for grand larceny. Eight in
dictments for robbery. Eight indictments
for assault with deadly weapons. One in
dictment for perjury. One indictment for
forgery. All of which have been properly
returned to the court.
We have ignored sixteen bills for lack of
evidence, and have endeavored not to order
indictments drawn where any doubt ex
isted in our minds of the ability to secure
conviction if the facts so presented before,
us were left uncontradicted or unanswered
before a trial jury.
Numerous charges of cattle stealing
were made before us, many of which it
was impossible to establish by any direct
rr satisfactory svidencc.
We discovered a remarkable reluctance
on the, part of many witnesses before us in
testifying to what they evidently knew in
relation to the facts. We could comider
that such reluctance was consequent from
fears of personal safely. Such a state of
feeling is deplorable in any community,
when truth is awed into s.lcnce by tenor
We trust the day is not remote when the
advance of settlement and the progress of
general prosperity of southern Arizona
will produce greater security, and more
clearly define the laws of " mine and
We visited the county jail, and found it
as comfortable us from its meager, and
somewhat' primitive character, we could
expect. Satisfaction was expressed bv
the prisoners in regard to their food and
Our visit to the county hospital likewise
showed cleanliness and orderly attention
to the patients, and was satisfactory in all
the details of its management.
We would call the attention of the su
petv'sors lo the consideration of the adop
tion of the present mode of conducting
county hospitals so generally in vogue In
the State of California. Also would rec
ommend, in on'cr to avoid imposition,
that each applicant for admission to the
hospital should be required to make an
allidavit before a proper oflicer in relation
to his indigepee before admission be grant
We found the books of the couuty treas
urer's oflicc in balance, and most neatly
and legibly written. At the time of our
visit we noted the need of a suitable safe
for books and papers, whicli we are since
pleased to learn has been' provided.
An examination of the county recorder's
oflicc showed everything there orderly and
neat in tlie matter of books and records,
and satisfactory throughout. In conncc
tion with thfs office it is is deemed wise,
in the opinion. of the jury, that a safe du

county should be provided at an early day,
and we would earnestly lecommend that a

Experience has taught us the speed with
which the Are king spreads in our midst,
and the contemplation of a ycry possible
contingency that might occur, and which
would entail so large a loss and produce
to great a confusion, Is of itself suflicicr.t
reason for the recommendation. While
the grand jury do not lose sight of the
fact that the construction of a county
court house containing all the necessary
oillces and prison is early desired, yet the
fact of the necessary remoteness of the
completion of such building should dem
onstrate the necessity of a place ot safety
for t"c books aiid papers during the in
There should exist no reason, since tlie
funds (.he proceeds of the sale of count
bonds) are now lying idle in the. treasury,
why the work on the courthouse should
not be commenced at once and be pushed
to as early completion as possible.
In the matter of transcribing tlie records
aflecting real and personal property from
Pima to Cochise county, whicli work was
done under special contract made with the
board of supervisors of this county, our
attention was directed to a claim that an
overcharge had been made in the quantity
of work performed on the part of the con
tractor, whose bill had already been al
lowed and paid by the board of super
visors. We carefully examined all the evi
dence obtainable upon the matter, and
could not, from the facts belore us, reach
a satisfactory conclusion as to whether
a wrong had or had not been committed
against the county; but inasmuch as the
matter in dispute" involves a very grave
question, we earnestly urge upon your
serious consideration the advisability pi
the employment of one or more, as in your
judgment may seem best, experts whose
sworn duty it shall be to make a careful
and correct estimate of tne number of
folios, of one hundred words each so tran
scribed from Pima to Cochise county, and
whose repott verified before yourself, or
whom" your honor may elect, shall le ad
judged the ttue and correct amount of
work so transcribed.
In our examination of the county offices
we found that the board of supervisors of
this county have neglected to require
quurterly statements from the various
county offices, and have most signally
failed in their duties as named under sec
tion 3, page G04, compiled laws of this
territory, and we recommend that hereaf
ter they be required to a strict enforcement
of the law in this particular.
We recommend that the treasurer of the
county be required to fuither augment the
amount of his bond in the sum of $20,000,
making the minimum of said bond not
less than $00,000, and that he tile tho ..Mi
tional amount by giving two or more good
and sufficient suieties, That the sherilT
also be required to amend Ids bond by fur
nishing two or more good and sufficient
bondsmen in lieu of T."E. Sumner and A.
II. Emanuel, who are deemed unsatisfac
tory to the jury; also that the tax-collector
(exofllcio) should amend his bond by fur
nishing tnree or more good and suffi
cient sureties in the sum of $12,000
to take the place of C. G. Billcke,
A. II. Emanuel and I. Levi. That
the county surveyor be required to furnish
a new bond. That all justices of the
peace, now acting in said capacity within
this couuty, and who have not filed their
bondsmen in the recorder's olllciofthis
county, shall be required fo do so at once.
We are clearly of the opinion iu the mat
tcr of minor offenses committed and tried
in ihe justice courts, thatin many cases the
ends of justice would be served to better
puipose by wholesome administration of
a fine or imprisonment, or both, by such
magistrate, instead ot (as in some notable
instances) passing them over to the Grand
Our thanks and obligations are extended
to our district attorney for his legal advice,
his many favors shown us and his general
aid to us in-all matters before us.
