.This Pnffo is from the Daily
of Wednesday. Jan. 4.
The city election is happily past,
and tlio electors are again free to
pursue their daily vocations without
recurrence to tho subject as to who
shall govorn us for the next two
years. The result is not just what
wo should have been pleased to see,
and not what we labored for, but
recognizMig tho fundamental prin
ciples upon which our government is
based that the majority shall rule
wo acquiesce in tho result without a
murmur, and have only tho kindliest
feelings and best wishes for the offi
cers elect, and will support then in
every effort for tho promotion of the
public good. We have no doubt but
those who were defoated yesterday wdl
have occasion before the present term
of office expires to thank their good
stars that thoy weie defeated, and that
those who are elected will many times
feel tveary with the burden and cares
of office and the censures they will
receive during tho continuance of
their administration of public affairs.
Whatever the results may be, the dio
is cast and there is no appealing from
XOT PLAYED OUT.
A Now STork paper makes the as
sertion that the silver mines of Ne
vada aro played out. Such a state
ment is an untruth, pure and simple.
Tho Comstock lode is not producing
largely at present, but some of the
most productive mines in the world
are in Nevada. Eureka district alone
is a silver empiro, to say nothing ot
the other districts in which mining is
being actively prosecuted.
The abovo is from the San Fran
.cisco Daily Report, a journal devoted
to Nevada stock gambling, and
averse to legitimate Arizona invest
ments. How mild it puts the present
collapsed coudition of tho Comstock.
It truly says, "It is not producing
largely at present." It ihould havo
amended by saying, in addition, "ex
cept in assessments." It yielded over
five millions in assessments last year,
beside swallowing up tho 11,505,000
product of the mines. Skimming
thus easily over this unpalatable pill,
it fairly gushes over Eureka district.
Hear it: "Eureka distriot alono is
a silver empire." This is good, cer
tainly, but then the public would
like to know just how good. We will
tell them. For the fiscal year ending
September 30, 1881, Eureka county
produced $3,108,543.91, .or about
two millions less than Tomb
stone district for the last year.
We should not criticise these boast
ful uttenyicesrsT'the Report were it
nocUfr the fact that it nover lets an
opportunity pass by when it can say
Something disparaging of Arizona in
general and Tombstone in partieular.
The press of San Franoisco? with
one exception, is inimical to the
mineral development of this country,
and will not, excopt in a general
way, refer to tho subject, no matter
how good a showing we make. The
San Francisco Daily Exchange shows
a spirit in marked contrast with tho
Report. All that wo ask for this
territory is fair and impartial justice.
The strides of progress in the pro
duction of gold, silver ud copper
during the last year has boon most
marvelous, and goes far to verify the
prediction of Baron Yon Humboldt
that this is the treasure-house of the
world. "We considor it largely with
in the bounds of realization that the
balance-sheet of 1882 will show at
least eighteen millions as tho product
of her mines. This will remind one
of the days when Comstock was
mounting to the zenith of her.-glory.
wniiiiE i.nMitsitA.vrs uo.
It is the goneral impression, says
the Mail and Express, that most of
tho immigrants arriving here from
Europe go west to grow up with tho
country. But statistics do not bear
out this notion, During tho year
ending last June 385,047 immigrants
arrived at Castlo Garden. Of this
number 7250 wont to Connecticut,
2150 to Rhode Island, and 11,09 7 to
Massachusetts. New York got 143,
132, Pennsylvania 30,475, and Now
Jersey 11,587. Even South Car.
olina received '1,284, Tennesseo
1395, Texas 1201, North Carolina
1284 and Maryland 18CC. Tho
Western states which received tho
largest number aro Illinois, which got
43,449; Iowa 12,525rMichigan 17,088,
Minnesota 15,098, Missouri 7220, In
iiiana 5324, Kansas 3881, Ohio 19,107,
Nebraska 4,'J24, ,and Wisconsin 15,-
J'Ol. These figure shojr .that the
vania offer more inducements to set
tlers than most of tho regions west of
the Mississippi. Ami it is notable
that, notwithstanding all the dibits
of the Mormon mission ries to ob
tain recruits in Europe, only 1,754 of
last year's immigration went directly
to Utah territory. In fact, the at
tractions of this country to Europoin
immigrants aro much nioro evenly
distributed than is generally sup

Washington, Jan. 3. Tho ante
room at the jail to-day was filled with
people waiting to bo conducted to
Guiteau's cell. He gavo his auto
graph to almost every visitor.
A now arrangement has been made
by which Guiteau has to subsist Up
on ordinary prison fare, throwing the
responsibility of food upon tho war
den of the jail, probably from fear of
poison. Guiteau is not to receive
his letters any more, and is not to be
supplied with newspapers.
Washington, Jan. 3. In tho
criminal court this morning Guiteau
made his opening speech as follows:
"I had a very happy New-Year's yes
terday, and hope everybody else did.
I had lots of visitors, high-toned,
middle-toned and low-toned; that
takes them all in, I believe. They
expressed their opinions freoly, and
none of them want mo hung. Thoy,
all without dissent, expressed the
opinion that I shall bo acquitted."
The Guiteau Trial.
Washington, Jan. 3. On the
opening of the court, Scovillc re
sumed his cross-examination of Dr.
Gray. Witness had not, in giving
his opinion on the direct examination,
that tho prisoner was sane, taken
into account the evidence ot tho pris
oner himself, but, taking that element
into consideration, his opinion would
still be the same, that the prisoner is
sane, and was sane on the second day
of July. Witness was asked if ho
was familiar with the case of Lieut.
Sanborn, who was killed by Dr.
Wright at Norfolk, Va., and roplied,
" Yes, sir; I was sent by the presi
dent to make an examination and
give an opinion of the case.
The IrHanlty DuTou.se.
Washington, Jan. 3. It is under
stood that the defense in the Guiteau
case will shortly introduce a new
feature the so'-called cranks, num
bering between forty and fifty, ar
rested hero since Guiteau shot the
president. Most of them havo been
sent to St. Elizabeth Insane Asylum
on physicians' certificates. .The.
physicians in each esse, will, it is
saiube subpoenaed for the purpose
of comparing those cases with Guit
eau's, with tho view of dembnstra
ting that if the commissions referred
to wore justly made, Guiteau must
be likewise insane.

Chicago, Jan. 3. A Washington
special says There is a report that
tho scheme of Logan to place Grant
on the retired list is not so much in
tho interest of Grant as in tho inter
est of Logan and other prominent
Grant followers, who hive ambitions
of their own, irrespective of the old
man. In other words, the principal
Grant shriekers aro tiring of thoir
yoke. They havo begun to rogard
him as an Old Man of the Sea. They
cannot shake him off until the old
man is willing to be shaken. It is
stated, on pretty fair gossip author
ity, that Grant told Logan and tho
rest that if ho is placed upon tho re
tired list as a goneral he will aban
don all fuluro political aspirations.
As Logan is principally in tho bus
ness of running the Grant feeler, ho
has an idea he may become a presi
dential candidate. Tho Grant crowd
would rather go without ono who is
an open candidate for re-election
than take their chances with tho stale

special: Senator Sherman's friends
have implicit confidence in tho result
of the investigation into the disburse
ment of the contingent fund now in
progress by a senate committee.
Said a prominent republican to-day:
"I have known John Sherman in
public and private life for over a
quarter of a century, and you may
set it down he will never bo convict
ed of petit larceny. His hands will
be found clean, and no amount of
investigation can hurt him."
The Star lloute Cunch.
Washington, Jan. 3. One of tho
special prosecutors for tho govern
ment in tho star route cases stated
to-day that thoy would commenco
their work before tho grand jury in
about two weeks. lHo said they havo
their evidence in a Satisfactory shapo
and feel confident H is sufficient to
the season of universal mourning in
Washington society over President
Garfield's death, and sociability will
resume its sway.
Gen. bherman has issued an order
stating that the abuse of sick leaves
on surgeons' certificates has grown
to bo so great that it becomes neces
sary to invito tho special attention of
officers making tho certificates and
the authorities granting or recom
mending leaves of absence to the ab
solute requirements of tho regula
tions on this subject.
Opposed to Jinking More Statett.
Washington, Jan. 3. A corres
pondent interviewed Springer.
"I suppose you democrats will
fight the admission of Dakota as a
State?" was asked.
" Yes," replied Springer. " I shall
oppose, any way. Utah is more fit
and better equipped every way than
Dakota; but I shall object to tho ad
mission of any territories as states
until boundaries and population be
come fixed. I should oppose the ad
mission of Utah, New Mexico and
Arizona just as seriously, although
wo would get democratic senators
from those states."

Washington, Jan. 3. A telegram
received from Gov. Murray of Utah
announces that ho may be expected

the house committee on elections in

The post-office department is wag

The HhaiieHVllIe Dinanter
Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 2. A spe
cial from Shancsville says of Satur
day night's disaster. The band had
just ceased playing when a crash was
heard, and tho floor began to settle
lengthwise in the contre. The joists
slipped off the posts in tho rear, and
pulled out of tho brick wall in front.
The floor settled rapidly and broke
lengthv iso. The joists kept up at
tho outer ends of tho ii:sido wall.
This threw the people, tables, stoves
and all together. The falling floor
barricaded the front doors, but they
wero soon chopped down. Tho chan
delier in tho storeroom below was
broken, and tho oil spilled over a
number of persons, bursted into a
blaze, and in a few moments Milton

Fatally burned Mrs. Dr. Yoder,

A large number were seriously in

Chicago, Jan. 3. A special says
that the banking house of Enoch
Littlcficld, of Kane, 111., suspended
payment yesterday morning. 'It is
hoped the suspension will bo only
temporary, us it results chiefly in the
laxness of the pushing of collections.
Tho amount involved is not stated.

Comparative Cost or UocriiiuentH.
It is as natural for man to com
plain of the expense of being gov
erned as it is to breathe, it mattering
but little whether the burden be
great or small. Tho following state
ment of the salaries of the great
rulers of the world is a fitting sub
ject of study for all. Those who
think American salaries are too high
have little show for relief by emigra
tion to tho older countries of tho
world, whatever other localities may
President Arthur receives $50,000
a year salary and the occupation of
the president's mansion, together
with perquisites for entertainments,
etc , not exceeding $50,000 more.
The comparison, to be complete,
should show the population contained
in each country. The little Swiss re
public pays its president only 3,000
a year, and his seven councillors.
$2,400 apiece, making a total of
$19,800. The French republic pays
$120,000 a year. Now, it is instruc
tive to contrast these figures with
the cost of personal governments,
where the. executives afo hereditary
or monarchical. Francis Joseph I,
emperor of Austria and king of
Hungary. ' paid by his subjects an
nually, $4,650,000. Leopold II, king
of Belgium, only gets $000,000 for
his services. Christian IX, king of
Denmark, draws from his loyal sub
jects only $311,200; while William
1, emperor ot Germany, is compeljed
to live on the annual pittance of $3,
079,820. Little Bavaria pays her
king only $1,378,805 a year, and
Wurtemberg manages to have a king
at the cost of only $400,000 a year.
.Saxony gets along with $702,950;
and three-cornered little Baden has
to pav for the Juxurv of a ruler only
$374,050. The co'st of royalty in
England is the mere bagatelleof
,$3,075,000, but her people have the
satisfaction of being governed by
Commons much more costly, their
queen being an excellent old lady,
w(ioso virtues (barring parsimony)
all tho world admires. Poor
old Italy, after taking caro
of the Pope, is compelled to limit
King Humberto's income to the small
sum of $3,100,000. In -dear old
Netherlands, William III bargained
with his loving subjects, owing to his
vast wealth, to govern them for
$250,000 a year, with an addition of
$02,500 to keep the palaces in re
pair. Louis I, King of Portugal, is
a generous old soul and returns one
sixth of his income into the ex
chequer, and consequently is com
pelled to live economically on only
$G;0,000 a year. Tho roval Alfqnso,
King of Spain, has only $2,000,000 a
year with which to buy his olla po
drida, and the Czar of Russia is con
fined to his palace with the beggarly
annual pay of $10,000,000 only.
What a shame! while tho pagan,
Abdul Hamid, Sultan of Turkev, an
nually consumes $22,500,000 of the
old bird he lives upon. We have
omitted Sweden and Norway, but
then Mr. Oscar No. 2 only gets
$529,440, a starving salary compared
to that of the president ot the
Tho Boston Herald well says: "It
will be perceived that, if Europe has
tho fancy for being governed by em
perors, kings, princes and grand
dukes, it costs, a great deal to carry
that fancy into actual operation. The
highly-paid magnates, who ought to
be the dependents and utility people
in tho great drama of political gov
ernment, have increasing)' proceed
ed during the centuries to make
themselves masters instead of servi
tors of the people. Single families
have thus absorbed the property of
the people, whom they seem to re

Important Development in a ilt
Promising Xlulng Camp.
It will be remembered Unit soms two
months ago a reporter on the Kpitapii
risked the c'autu Cutallna district, situa

of mountains of the same name, and dis
tant from the San Pedro river about fifteen
miles, unci from Benson, the nearest ship
pine point on tho railroid, fifty five miles,
a full report of which appeared in our col.
umns at that time. Ii was predicted at
that time that this would develop into a
great mining camp. From u private letter
from a reliable gentleman resident of that
district, we extract the following interest,
ing matter to show that our reporter's
views were not the roseate 'emanations
begotten of interested motives. He says:
"The Comanche is bonded for 32,000
and the working capital deposited in
Tucson, the owner reruviug fix hundred
