The late grand jury of Sin Fran
cisco, in view of the fact that the
plea of insanity is put 'in upon the
trial of almost every murderer in
the land, deemed it within their prov
ince to recommend to the next legis
lature that it so amend the criminal
law that whenever the plea of insan-
is interposed by or in behalf of a
ion accused ot any crime, that
alone, whether sauo or insane,
Id be first inquiied into. If they
found insane, and the crime
icicle, the lunatic should be sent
1 asylum and never again suf
1 to go at large. This recom-
dation is in the right direction,
if embodied in the statutes of
Sy state would have a most salu-
iolTect upon these emotional fel-
l who are sane enough to plot
execute crime, and yet too in-
, under the maudlin scntimental-
f the present day, to have a just
ghteous punishment meted out
em. Between this plea and the
iiicalitios interposed by artful
sel and' the higher courts,
most hardened criminals es-
tho legitimate consequeuoes
their evil deeds. A statute
i ig it obligatory to first set-
tho mental and moral condi-
of the accused, and then, if
d non compos mentis at the
of the commission of the crime,
igning them beyond hope of
ration to an insane asylrim
life, would create so great a
d upon the minds of would-be
inals that many would bo de-
d from committing an overt act
si the lives'of their fellow-be-
So long as there is a hope for

technical pleas, hardened and
rate characters will take the
ccs the law offers. Speedy and
punishment is now what is most

ment, but this has become a

Nur YoitK, Jan. 5. Special from
Washington: The northern states of
Mexico havo recently united in a de
mand upon the government of Mex
ico that the zona libra, or free belt,
shall bo extended to the Pacific, cov
ering the entire border of the United
States. It now extends from the
Gulf of Moxico along the Rio
Grande about half way to the Pacific
coast. When this proposal came to
the knowledge of tho United States
government, Minister Morgan was
instructed to protest against it on the
ground that zona libra made smug
gling easy. It is understood that
Senor Romero is or soon will bo upon
his way to Washington with authority

before tho jury yesterday additional

Sunday, a Sun reporter paid a
brief visit to tho Torrence mill and
found everything running as
smoothly as clock-work. Two more
gentlemanly, accommodating and ef
ficient men could not be found at a
mill than Mr. Dwyer, the superinten
dent, and Mr. Waller the metallur
gist. We saw in an inverted cone what
looked to us like twenty gallons of
amalgam, how much that was worth
wo are unable to tell, for we never
saw any rule where silver was com
pnted by the gallon; but we know
this, that the mill is pounding out
about one thousand dollars a day.
How is that for the Toireneo mine ?
And there is estimated to be 24,000

proved to be bad investments, and
we are glad to see they are in a fair
way to get it back with tho Dutch

We have it, on what may be con
sidered reliable authority, that the
Red Rover mine in Magazine dis
trict has just been sold for the hand
some sum of $400,000. The purchas
ers are supposed to.be Eastern capi
talists. However, w arc unable to
gain any particulars of the facts, as
it is general custom in this section
of tho territory and the only place
on the coast where we havo ever
found it so for the owners of mines
to seek obscurity fer their property,
and surround tho most trival trans
actions connected therewith, with the
greatest secrecy. Of course this is
their privilege, as these affairs per
tain strictly to themselves, yet we
must question the wisdom of a
policy that hides under a measure
our most important industry. The
Red Rover is really a good mine and
the enlistment of capital in its de
velopment is a matter for public con
gratulation. A DeHnerado ItosKcd.

Burke, upon reaching McDowell, sold
his weapons to get money to continue
his flight from justice, and conse

However, in making his capture,
George Hall met with a painful acci

Meyers district published in the Citizen of
the 4th inst:
The formation in which the Gunsight
lode is found is mostly a porphyry granite,
and is said to be the only place in the ter
ritory where such a perfect tormation for
rich orejjodies can be found.

survey of several of these mines

the data (or the following facts concern
ing the Meyers district, and the report
may be relied on as being official. He
slates that upon the Sierra del Esjieranza
are eleven first-clnss mines more or less de
veloped, with a number of other claims of
less note. Of the first, the Gunsight, Sil
ver Girt, Eastern, Morning Star and Cres
cent have been siuveyed lor patent. The
Atlanta, failver Reef, Westward, Last
Chance, Morning Star and Mineral Bed,
are promising mines, but not yet as tho
roughly developed as the Gunsight. On
the dumps the bodies of ore range from
twenty-five tons to twenty-three hundred
tons, by actual measurement, of a good
grade milling ore. The mines are large,
bold and well defined, and the veins have
but a very slight dip. The Gunsight has
a shaft 200 llet deep, at the bottom of
which is a ciosscut of 43 feet, all In ore,
and the wall not yet reached. Other tun
ncls and drifts aggiegatc. 500 feet, all in
ore. Tho width of the lead cannot be de
te; mined. The ore i very rich, and se
le'ctcd specimens ficqnently g-ve 13,000
ounces to the ton, while the whole ore
body, fioin ils appearance, would not as
say les-t than $60 per ton. From a careful
estimate of tho oic in sight, but not yet
taken out ot the Gunsight, the body will
yield $ 1,500,00 in silver. This is only
counting what is at present visible to the
eye, and not what may be behind the body
already exposed. Mr. Chillson states that
this Is the largest and most permanent
silver lode he has ever seen outside the
original Comstock lode of Nevada.

Two Uundred and Klghty.nye Mines
itepreeented In TombNtone and Co
Mr. Henry W. Kearaing. the Fourth
street assaycr, has collected and nrMiiged
the finest collection of minerals, of this
and the surrounding districts, that Is to be
found in Tombsfone. He has two cab
inets one leprexeuiing ninety-two mines,
and the other one hundred and ninety
three. The specimens aie in duplicate and
triplicate, all nicely labeled and num
bered, with a historical and descriptive
account of the mine they came from, the
minerals they contain and what thoy as
say, written out in a register kept for that
purpose. The immense labor that this has
entailed can only be partially approxi
mated, hut the making of 285 assays, with
the necessary chemical tests to determine
the constituents of the ore, shows that it
has been more than most men would care
to undertake. The assays range all the
way from $30 up to 7,000 per ton. This
cabinet shows more clearly than days of
travel over our rugged mountains would,
the great extent and variety of our min
eral resources. Probably fully two-thirds
of these specimens came from mines and
prospects in Tombstone district, and rep
resent a scopes of country four by eight
miles In extent. Outside the developed
mines represented, there are many of the
others that by sufficient work done upon
them will turn out paying properties.

Interesting facts from the Klnra
Reviewing the past, on this list day of
the old year, we have made rapid tliidei
toward our ambition, that of lx-ing the
nrst anu largest producer ot silver nullum
in the world. As districts, we, of "Silver,"
have much to be thankful for, and much
to regret, In that, but for the bad manage
ment of that truly wonderful property, the
Silent mine, we would certainly have been
farther advanced. However, the excellent
and economical management of tha Black
Rock, and the result of development
reaches the limit set by the most bauguine
expectations. The rich strikes made In
other lodes, in different parts of the dis
trict, tho rich carbonate and snlphuret
found in the Lost mine, the Immense body
of rich galena and sand carbonates in the
Remnant, the known value of the Rooster,

Clip, Homcvard, Mamie and many others,
the names of which have escaped me,

rnor. u. billiman,
in his mineralogical notes, in the Ameri
can Journal nf Science for September,
pages. 108 and 199, writing of the forma
tion of Silver district, says": "All the
veins of this district occur, as 1 am in
formed by Mr. Thomas, between afoot
wall of granite and a hanging wall of por
phyry, specimens of which 1-have in
hand. The footwall of granite Is some
what irregular, but tho porrihyritlc hang
ing wall is well denned ' it -closely
resembles the augite trachytes of
Nevada and elsewhere, the usual associ
ates of silver ores the world over." Mr.
Thomas was in error when staling the
foot wt.lt of granite was somewhat irregu
lar, as applying to the whole district.
Tlmt portion under his immediate notice
thn Red Cloud ore channel is the lo
cality to which be had reference, I pre
sume, he not being familiar with the. dis
trict in its entirety. On the nine-mile ore
channel the foot wall Is clearly defined, .
and (month walls of granite can be seen
on the Ne More lode, where it cuts through
a gulch, as the most exacting could desire.
