At tlie oratorical and musical
entertainment at Metropolitan
Temple, San Francisco, last Wed
nesday evening, in aid of the yel
low fever sufferers, Col. Ayers of
this city was one of the speakers.
We clip from the Call's report of
Colonel J. J. Ayers, of Los An
geles, gave a synopsis of bit ad
dress ou "Pioneer Times," delivered
some time ago before the California
Pioneers. He said the prlucipal
object he had in view was to disa
buse the popular mind of the er
roneous Idea that the days of '49
were days of semi-barbarism. If
the State had progressed since theu
lv a material sense, it had also
kept pace in crime and immorality
with the other adjuncts of modem
civilization. In early days, the
miulug camps were united in a
federation, and though there were
no written laws or regularly Insti
tuted magistrates, yet law and
order were there in the most sub
stantial sense. Justice was weigh
ed with scales as true as ever
known in older communities. The
vulgar crime of larceny was rare,
and summarily punished when
discovered. Assaults were more
frequent, but It was not safe for
desperadoes to go outside their own
class in their trawl , and unnn -
queutly tbe serious affrays were
confined principally to the
gamblers. Persons and prop
erty were safer in the mines In
'49 than to-day in Sau Francisco.
Tbe speaker said tbat Bret Harte
and Mark Twain bad created an
entirely wrong impression of tbe
character of the pioneer, who was
generally an educated aud intelli
Col. John D. Graham, of theTol
tec Mining Syndicate, in Southern
Arizona, looked in on us yesterday.
He has just returned from his trip
to tbe Santa Rita mines. He has
been absent about six weeks; and,
though he has sweltered much un
der tbe torrid sun of that region he
is the picture of good health. Col.
Graham informs in that a great
mining revival is going on in Ari
zona which is quite paralleled by
the Railway revival. Eastern
Railway men are proving fully
alive to the opportunities ottered iv
that rich mineral section. Tbe
Santa Rita, the Arivaca, the Tomb
stone und other districts, all look
well aud are being rapidly pros
pected. Arizona bas never wit
nessed such an influx of people be
fore, aud of people who mean bus
iness. There is universal confi
dence lv both the extent, richuess
aud permanence of the mines.

New Way to Pay Back Rent.
A Frenchman named Courtade
bas found a new way to pay back
rent. He bad been sued for arrears
and threatened witb expulsion.
He insisted tbat tbe Judge, the
clerk, tbe bailiff and the landlord
should examine tbe premises.
These four men with tbe landlord's
wife entered th* yard together, and
the tenant told them be was will
ing to pay up, only he wanted an
extra grange and tbe well. He
said, "I'll go and fetch tbe agree
ment," and went into the house.
He brought back two guns and a
pistol. " Now," be said, "we are
on the battle field. We must all
did here. These are for you—this
for inc." Aud he pointed to the
arms In his hands. "Come, come,"
said the Judge, kindly, " this is
childishness. Put down those
arms." Courtade fired, and the
landlord and Judge tell dead where
they had stood. The clerk and tbe
bal iff followed next. The land
lord's wife ran Into tbe house and
locked the door. Courtade fol
lowed her and fired through tbe
window. She had a child iv her
arms. Both fell. He Uiei
walked quietly to his own place
and shut himself up. Tht
bnuse was soon surrounded. H>
tried to kill himself, but did uoi
succeed. The four men lv the yard
were dead. The woman, thanks to
her presence of mind, escaped.
Courtade tried to appear mad, bul
did not deceive the doolors. He
is terribly afraid of dying now.
He hopes to have the sentence
commuted to hard labor for life.
A Victim of His Own Superstition.
Lrruckee Republican, Sept. 21st.]
Robert Hyslop was killed at
Katz's logging camp, uear Boca,
and about a week later a young
man named Butler was killed at
the same camp aud iv nearly the
same manner. Several of tbe
workmen became alarmed at the
strange fatality wblcb appeared
to overshadow the place aud, de
manding their wages, quit work
Among the superstitious workmen
was Thomas Hahn, who suicided
by jumping Into Luke Bigler last
week. Mr. Kabn's death is
shrouded in mystery. He was Ob
nerved sitting ou the wharf at Bay
City, aud a few moments later his
body was found lying lifeless on
tbe pebbly bottom of the lake. The
dread fatality which he imagined
presided over tbe camp bad appar
ently pursued him with relentless
The Turks lost about 150,000 men
killed and wounded duriug the re
cent war, and, according to tbe
Invalide Eusge, something over
10,000,000 cartridges were fired by
the Russians, which would make
the proportion of hits 1 in every 66
shots fired. At Splcheren, the
Prussians scored 1 Frenchman for
every 279 shots, at Worth 1 for
every 147 and at Co'ouibe-Neuilly
1 for 114, so that if the Russian
figures are correct, the Russian sol
dier is a better shot or more eco
nomical of ammunition than his
Germin cousin. However, the
Russians employed artillery fire
more largely than usual, and a
London paper hints that they may
have used the bayonet after their
enemies had surrendered.

And each purchaser to the amount of $2 50 will receive a bona fide FINE SILVER
GIFT of one of the above-named articles. The SILVER GIFTS will be open for
inspection prior to the sale on Monday, September 30th, and we pledge ourselves to
carry out this programme in this entirety, and we need only add that the distribution
of these GIFTS will be made in an impartial manner and in equity —the larger the
purchase the more valuable the Gifts.
SPECIAL IsTOTIOE. *^*r
In conclusion we would say that faith will be kept with the public and tho above
statement carried out in all its bearings. We are perfectly aware that these high
priced stores will sneer at this Silver Gift Sale of ours, and ask the question, "How
can they do it?" That is our business; and we paid for our experience, and we have
no doubt that these high-priced stores will pay through the nose for theirs. Suffice it
to say that we paid for the SILVER. We shall at all times conduct our business as
we see fit, irrespective of all outsiders. The simple fact is, the people want cheap
goods, and we are determined to let the people have cheap goods at the GREAT
SILVER GIFT SALE
