ANOTHER LOST TREASURE.
A Legend of tho Yuma-Apache
.Indians Gold in a Box Canyon.
Tho Indians Cnrrylng It off Ave Over
taken by u l'lood mid Drowned.
A Slniilo Survivor ltcturna
to Tell tho Tnle.
Tlio Yuma-Apachcs bavo a Mory
which, although old, is still told ami
liclicrcd by them. Thoy say that many
years ago, ilurlug tho hot weather,
whilst warriors of their tribe; were
hunting tho elusive mountain sheep in
tho Castlo Uomo rauge, they entered a
box canyon, ono which was entirely
now to them. Tho walls of the canyon
were of white anil pink lluor spar, al
most perpendicular and hundreds of
fvct'iu height. Tho great canyon was
entered at nightfall and it was decided
to camp there until morning, :us the
surroundings looked good for water
tanks to bo found and the precious
Until was becoming scarce among the
party. When daylight came the war
riors looked around, but no trace of
water could bo found. Matters were
becoming serious, as tho nearest known
tank was fifteen miles away. About
the timo that almost all hope had lied,
a shout from a young brave at the
head of tho canyon announced tho dis
covery of water. A rush was made to
tho place and a pool of water, cool ami
clear as crystal, was found running
, ver its empoundineut of granite, a
tiny stream flowing a short distance
down the canyon wlicro it soon sank
beneath the looso gravel. The "tank"
proved to bo a spring which came up
from below tho face of the canyon's
wall, and on the upper side of the de
composed iron-rock, quartz and spar
could be seen piled up as if dumped
from tho workings of mines. The In
dians camped there for somo time
awaiting the coming of mountain sheep
for water. Late in the evening a large
amount of game was killed and the
hunters matlo preparations to leave for
home. In the morning a number of
tho young bucks took a bath in the
limpid pool, ami on reaching tho bank
of decomposed rock It was found to be
fully one-half gold. Nuggets, large
ami small, were foiiud in great pro
fusion. Great excitement prevailed and
tho Indians carried away all they
could pack. They knew that the
precious metal could bo traded off in
Me.ico for knives, beads, panocha, to
bacco ami mescal. With songs of joy
they began tiicjr-jjm-,iey homeward.
Suddenly tho skjecamo black, the
thunder pealed and lightning Hashed
ami it seemed as if the rain was falling
in river-like volume. In terror the
Indians hurried aloiig, for they know
full well that if they did not get out of
tho box canyon before tho waters from
tho cloudburst came down, it meant
death to ono and all. With a roar-of
mighty force, tho wall of foaming
water came down, sweeping everything
Only ono of tho Indians escaped
death, and as he wearily made his way
home, sadly mourned over tho terrible
end which had overtaken his relatives
and comrades. Upon arriving home
tho Indian told his story of adventure
ami showed tho gold ho had found In
tho mysterious box canyon. An old
man of tho tribe then spoke out m
words of anger" ami condemnation,
saying that the Yuma-Apachcs had
been warned years before by the great
Spirit to never enter tho cauyon as it
was the abiding place of tho gods. Tho
chiefs of the tribe had kept their people
away from the forbidden spot for years,
and it seemed necessary for tho great
Chief to teach them a lesson they never
Tho lcgeml ubovo was told years ago
to Nick Guntlier, "Long John" nor
land and Neil Johuson, who made re
peated searches for the cauyon and
spring, but without success. A num
ber of the Indians say they know just
where to go and llud tho place, but
nothing on earth could tempt them
to either go there or ppiut out tho way.
Some gold has been found on tho Castlo
Dome rauge, but In trilling quantities.
The best show of gold iu that section
so far as found, is in tho copper camp,
Montezuma district, where tho yellow
metal is found lu tho copper ore.
Tho story of the Indians flml is be
lieved by many, and who knows but
that In years to come the box canyon
treasure house may be found, and its
iinuienso wealth distributed among
those who need it most? Yuma.

Ono company here has on its "pay roll
over COO employees, not lududiug tho

fu whether there are any other -mines
that have been more regular as bullion
producers than he Uisbce mines. The
camp bete ones its existence to the
Copper Queen Co., which is ono of the
closest corporations doing business in
our Territory, seven individuals con
stituting its membership. With an un
stinted hand they have expended vast
sums iu machiuery, roads and develop
ment work. Tho immense machinery
employed iu hoisting and smelting the
ore, tho constant throbbing, pulsating
sound of the huge engines, the whirl
and roar of belts and pulleys, and the
molten metal, flowing like water,
caues one to stand in awe ami sur
prise. Tho works underground aro still
more of a surprise to tho uuitiated.

Their wealth is beyond computation,
as the ore exposed to view shows
enough to keep them running for

the most flattering terms of the manage
ment. Tho population Is hard to estimate,
but it is near 3000. Prof. Varuum,

Mrs. Potter Palmer, President of the
Hoard of Lady Manager of tho Exposi
tion, as already announced, will drive
the last nail used in completion of tho
Woman's llullding. This nail will be
furnished by tho women of Montana,
and will be a very wonderful one, as Is
indicated by this description of it,
given by the Helena, Montana, Inde
pendent: The nail has been so made as to
form tho back or cross bar of a brooch,
which is to bo a shield bearingthcco.it
of arms of Montana reproduced iu
native gold without a trace of alloy in
its composition. Tho shield will be of
gold, and tho symbolical figures will
bo made of the same metal but of dif
ferent colors. The waterfall iu tho
foreground will be of light colored
gold sunk into the shield, and the plow
and ick, standing at tho foot of the
falls, will be of a darker shade, as will
be the background or relief. Tho
wreath surrounding tho escutcheon
will be of native gold, and the figures
of the two men supporting the whole
on either side will also be of the same
rich, yellow gold. Underneath will bo
the scroll, bearing the motto of tho
state, "Oro y Plata." In the two
upper portions of the wreath two Mon
tana sapphires w ill be inserted. Instead
of merely engraving the figures, each
will bo wrought separately and then
fastened together, making tho task of
shaping the brooch not only a delicate,
but exceedingly difficult one, and one
that will require much skill and
To Mrs. J. E. Ktckards of Duttc, be
longs the credit of tho happy idea of
making the last nail one of sudi inter
est. In design the nail, which is being
made by a Unite jeweler, will bo the
counterpart of an ordinary twelve
penny nail and iill be composed of
three strips with silver Iu tho center
and tho gold ami copper on either side.
Tho nail and brooch aro distinct
articles and after tho former has been
driven it will bo drawn from the
wood, fastened to the brooch and the
whole presented to Mrs. Palmer.
Tho women of Nebraska ha o under
taken to furnish tho hammer with
which this "last nail" will bo driven.
A description of tho hammer has not
yet been given, but it is tho intention
to make it worthy of the aristocratic
nail with which it will bo brought iu
contact by Mrs. Palmer. It has been
suggested that it bo made of native
Nebraska woods, inlaid with gold,
silver and pearl.

GOOD NEWS FOR ARIZONA,
Territorial Bonds Havo Been
1'. J. Ilorton Accomplishes Their !-alo
After the Failure of Many Others
to do so The Gover
At last the good news reaches us
that a sale of our territorial bonds
under tho Wolfiey Funding law, has
been accomplished through tho untir
ing cfforU of Mr. Hortou who, regard
less of the failure of others or the
representations of our financial wise
men, has kept constantly at work iu his
endeavors; and now writes that iu ac
cordance with his' contract with the
commissioners tinder date of Janu
ary 2, 1892, ho has effected n
sale to parties who stand ready to
furnish the money as soon as tho loan
commissioners comply with their por
tion of tho contract, and deliver the
This certainly is good news for the
Territory, and undoubtedly the loan
commissioners will do their part. This
information is also based on the follow
ing dispatch from Mr. Horton to Gov
ernor Irwin at Keokuk, a copy of
which has been kindly furnished the
New Yokk, Jan. 1G, 1892.
Governor John N. Irwin, Keokuk,
Have sold bonds at annual interest
according to my contract, commence
ment of interest subject to arrange-
ment, E. J. Hokton'.
This, as will bo sen, is without con
dition of any kind and requires no
legislation by Congress to perfect it.
It will be remembered that tip to this
time it has been claimed that bonds
could not be sold unless the Interest
was paid semi-annually, and then,
even it was said, that nothing less than
a six per cent bond could be sold. The
above dispatch shows that Governor
Wolfiey was right in placing tho inter
est as low as five per cent; and while
the bonds might have been sold sooner
had the interest been payable semi
annually, still as they are now sold, no
great harm has bceu done, as the con
venience of paying annually instead
of semi-annually, is very great, and, iu
fact, saves serious expenses and risk to
Our taxes arc payable annually and
to hold the interest money for half fhe
year on hand, is necessarily to incur
great risk, and should it be collected
semi-annually it, would cost increased
expense for collection and force tax
payers to pay in advauco by six mouths
from what they now pay.
We have no doubt but what our loan
commissioners will act proinptly in tlio
delivery of the bonds, iu accordance
with their contract with Mr. Hortou,
and by their fiction facilitate the ad
vantages to be gxiiucd by the operations
of the above lav, and give the Repub
lican admiiiisti'alion the credit of
financial reform? that will bo lasting
iu their effects for future welfare. We
congratulate the commissioners and
tho Republican administration on the
favorable results thus gained. Re

Territorial Weather Service of Arizona,
co-operating with the Weather
Rurcau, U. S. Department of
Agriculture, for January, 1892.
TKJii'EitATUnE Tho mean temper
ature iu Arizona for the mouth of
January was apparently about the
normal in the eastern and central por
tions, while in tho western part it
ranged about 3 degrees above the
normal. At Tucson there was a de
ficiency of about one-fourth of a de
gree, while at Yuma there was an
increase of temperature averaging
ucarly thrco degrees for the mouth.
Thelncau temperature for the Terri
tory was -17.1 degrees; tho highest
monthly mean was 6G.7,rcpqrtcd from
Yuma; the lowest 30.1, from Flagstaff,
The greatest monthly range was 73
degrees, at Flagstaff, and the least 38
at Gila Ueud. Three warm waves
swept tho Territory on the 4th, 7th
and 25th, tho latter day being the pre
vailing wannest, and tho highest tem
perature, 8Q degrees, reported from
Red Rock, occurred on that date
From the 12th to tbe loth was the
coldest day, and the lowest temper
ature, 11 degrees below zero, was re
ported from Flagstaff on that date.
The chief charactistic of the temper
ature for this month was Its apparent
PitECirrrATiON Tho precipitation
for the month was unusually great,
averaging nbout an inch abovo the
normal, bciug greater in the western
mill northern parts than in other local
ities. Flagstaff reported the' greatest
percipitatiou, 7.00 inches,' the least,
0.30, was rcpoilrd from 'Periston.
Only m stations iu the Tcnitory re
ported Miow, Flagstaff, where the
phenomenal snowfall was 70 inchc',
was the only slat ion at tho cloe of tho
month where the snow covered this
ground to a sufficient depth to protect
vegetation. Tho greatest part of the
percipitation fell from tho 27th to the
31st, and was attended in many local
ities by high winds, hail, thunder and
lightning. The heavy rains which
were quite general all over the Terri
lorw, will be worth millions of dollars
to the cattle interests. Had the drouth
continued, the loss would haebcen
iucaiciiable. Cattlemen will now have
no fear of any further loss during the
u Inter, as the present water supply
will bo ampli sufficient to last till mild
weather will bo at hand. Tho follow
statioiis reported snow during the
mouth: Chiricahua Mts., 7.5 inches;
Flagstaff, 70.; Holbrook, .2. Mt. Huac
huca, 2.2.; Natural lhidge, a trace, -and
Walnut Ranch, 5.3 inches. There
were 18 cloudless, 5 partly cloudy and
8 cloudy days during the month, and 1
days on which percipitation fell. The
prevailing wind was southwest.
Miscellaneous Piif.xo.mena Thun

ado liver, thirty miles above Yuma,
will put iu a dam to raise the water
sufficiently high to enable the company
to deliver water ou the high mesa lands
south of Yuma, which will require a
height of at least twenty feet. This
canal will will be of sufficient iHmcn-1"

the xolunie of the stream.
The surplus water wasting over the

had his right hand blowu off by the ex

powder was to be used in killing fish.
McClcnnau took a stick of powder in
each hand and lit the fuse. He threw
the stick from his left baud into the
river but retained his hold on thd
other, although Mr. Uacon hallooed to
him to throw it away. McClcnnau
appeared to be paralyzed by fright,
until the powder exploded, tearing his
hand in a frightful manner, but not in
juring any other part of his person.'
