C. B. TAPPAN,
Tho ItuiHllUK of Mora It ill I rondo
Tlio Albuquerque Democrat hays it
i-f now an assured fact that tho Ash
Fork, Prcscott & Phoenix railroad will
bo constructed. The length of the
proposed line is from Ash Fork to
Prcscott, 5 1 miles, and from I'rescott
to Phoenix, the capital. of Arizona, 100
miles. Five miles of tho grading out
from Asli Fork havo been completed,
and it is expected that tho entire lino
to Prcscott will be in running older by
September 1. While tho work is pro
gressing upon this part of the road, a
force of graders will also be at woik
from Prcscott south to Phoenix, so that
when the road reaches Prcf-eott there
will bo no interruption in the work,
and it will bo speedily pushed to com
pletion to Phoenix, down iu tho femi-
tropieal elimo of the Salt river valley.
Tho money necessary for this great en
terprise has all been raised, and there
is now no obstaelo iu the way of the
early construction of the line. The
country through which it will pass is
all more or less tributary to Albuquer
que, and wo of this city are materially
and largely interested in it, for it will
bo a most valuable feeder to this city.
Wo want tho wheat, oats and rye of
the Salt river valley, and they want
the lumber from Mitchell ami Flag
staff and tho coal from Cerrillos and
Gallup. This line will also stimulate
tho construction of smelting works iu
this city, for it will penetrate one of
the richest mining belts in the south
west, and hero will be the most favor
able site for works to treat the ores.
For the groat advantages which will
undoubtedly accrue to this city from
teis road, we havo to thank Mr. I). 15.
Kobiusou, who conceived the plan,
organized the company and is carrying
the enterprise through to success. Mr.
Kobhisou. as is well known here, is
one of the most successful raihoad
men in the country, and tho fact that
hu has this important work iu charge
is a guaranteo of success.
An Appeal Tlint Cnmo Too Lute.
A discovery was made by some boys
who were playing on the river bank
above Yuma a few days ago which may
lio of interest to some people in the
East. The discovery was that of a
bottle in which there was a paper.
The bottle had undoubtedly been
washed down tho stream and became
stranded on tho sand where it was
found. The paper in the bottle read
as follows :
" Wo arc hemmed in by Indians on
the hcadwatcrsiof the Gila river, and
throw' this in the'Mrcatn with tho hope
that it may bo found by some one in
time to have assistance come to us.
There are three of our party and we
are from Massachusetts. Wo rre John
Welford, William Duncan and George
Weston. Wc have been prospecting on
tho mountains and havo been run to a
hole by a lot of Indians."
This wsis dated June 29, 1870. The
bottle had evidently failed of its mis
sion, and the three men who were be
sieged were undoubtedly killed by tho
savages. About the time tho paper was
dated there was much trouble, with the
Apache Indians, who were in the
mountains, and finally became so bad
that they drove tho prospectors from
tho range, until the troops Miccccdcd
iu driving them all out of the country.
Inquiry hero elicits nothing that would
throw any light ou the subject, and it
is not known that any such persons
were ever iu the country. ' The Olllcials
of tho city will send "(ho papers to
llostou, with tho possibility of getting
some light as to the identity of the men
who threw the bottle in tho river.
Mormons In Mexico.
Elder A. J. Stewart, one of tho sev
enty elders of tho Mormon Church of
Utah, is spending n fbw. days in this
capital, says tho Anglo-American of
the City of Mexico. Ho states that
there are now 5000 settlers in the
Mormon colonics of Chihuahua. They
are entirely independent of go eminent
by tho Mormon church, and each indi
vidual owns his land iu his own name.
Tlio colonics have recently purchased
100,000 acres of laud near tho head of
the Concho and San Pedro rivers. The
company organizing the settlements is
incorporated with a capital of ?1,000,
000 nnd .is a. purely business enterprise.
No ehpfs or religion) distinctions, nro
made, and people of all faiths tiro free
to locate among tho colonists and may
worship iu any manner that their con
sciences dictate. Tho main principle
of, tho church is obedience to the laws
of tho laud whiehZJhoy inhabit and
respect to tho ruIerViiml governors of
tho country. ThbJMorinon colonics aro
not accustomed to intcrfeio in tho poli
tics of Mexico, and will only devote
themselves to cultivating their lauds
and improving the portion of the
republic where they are living.
The beneficent influence exercised In
Mich a class of people on the common
wealth may be seen at aglauceaud thu
government may be assured that such
a class of emigration will tend to in
crease the wealth and prosperity of tho
Tlio Tuinncucorl Mine.
Aii old milling shaft has been dis
covered about nine miles from tho
Tiunacacoii church ruins near Tubae,
sas the Advertiser. It shows signs of
lia ing been filled in with ea.-th and
rock to within about twelve feet of the
surface. The shaft is about ten by
twenty feet and tho marks of the drill
aie very clear. It is thought by tho
discovers. James Fisher and two Mexi
cans of Xogalcs, that it is the old
Tumacaeori mine, of which so much
has been said and which has beeii so
persistently sought for many years.
Tradition is, that the Jesuit fathers
with the Indians, discovered a very
rich mine which they worked for years
until the murderous Apaches pressed
them so hard that they lilled up tho
mine and obliterated all trace of it,
until such times as they could peace
fully and safely renew operations.
Their expectations were never realized
for the Apaches at last overwhelmed
and wiped them out of existence.
The crumbling walls of tho old
church still remain, though fast melt
ing away, a mute reminder that all
things have an ending; a monument to
tho fortitude, religious 7cal and unsel
fish devotion of the Jesuit pioneers iu
their attempt to civilize and christian
ize the most savage and barbarous
beings that the world overproduced.
Indications That It "Will bo Much
Lnfjjcr TIiIh Year.
From present indications tho desert
lake here will bo much larger than last
year. At present the lake is about
half a mile wide, and after running
along the Southern Pacific track for
about two miles, it extends off out of
sight to the south. At this time last
year there was not a drop of water
visible, although there was a quantity
a few inches below the surface of the
sink. It was not until several mouths
later that tho Hoods occurred in tho
Gila and Colorado rivers, caused by
melting snows, and it was only in
August that the water ou Saltou sink
began to attract attention. The snow
in the mountains at present is heavier
than for years, and coming, as tho
water will when it melts, on land
already in large part saturated, a lake
of unexampled extent will be created.
Old residents believe that about 100
miles of track of tho Southern Pacific
which lies in the desert below the sea
level will be overflowed.
Tho appropriation made at the last
session of Congress for Indian mission
and Government schools, cast and
west, was, for tho current fiscal year,
$2,S91,GoO. Tho Indian Eights Asso
ciation has issue a cirutilar stating that
it has reason to believe an attack on
Indian education is imminent, and if it
be successful Congress may reduce
Indian appropriations by two millions
of dollars. The opinion expressed is
that the first movement will be abolish
the Eastern schools Carlisle, Hamp
ton, Lincoln's Institute and others
a the entering wedge, to bo followed
by a general attack on the Government
and Mission schools iu tho West. The
theory seems to be that the education
gien to Indian children does not bene
fit them, but that as soou as they aro
iclcascd ft om school and return to
their homes they are demoralized by
their association, ami this view is cho
correct one. Globe Pelt.

Importunt VVorlc WHIch Willi be Done
The re-survey of tho bou.idary lino
between the United Stales and Mexico
is a long and expensive undertaking.
The lino is to bo marked with perma
nent monuments about about a mile
apart and iu older to do this the whole
lino must bo rc-surved. At present
only a few monuments exist and this
fact has led to coustant disputes by
citizens of tho two countries.
Mr. G. It. Putnam of the U S. Coast
and Geodetic survey, has arrived at
Yuma aud will find its latitude and
longitude. This work will require six
or two months. It is for the purpose
of furnishing tho boundary surveyors a
starling point. Mr. Putnam's head
quarters will be at the corral! on the
Quartermaster's Reservation, where he
will establish a temporary astronomical
observatory. Ho is having two solid
brick piers built, on one of which will
rest a zenith telescope for the purpose
of finding latitude. The other pier will
support an astronomical transit to
ascertain longitude. Two slits in tho
roof w ill afford an unbroken view of
the sky iu a north nnd south line.
Temporary connection will bo made
with the Western Union w ires and tele
graphic communication will be made
with the Western Union and telegra
phic communication had with observers
at San Diego and Los Angeles.
When Mr. Putnam's work is com
pleted the spot will bo perma
nently marked aud tho results
recorded. From this point the exact
place of junction of. the Gila and
Colorado rivers will bo found by triau
gulation, and from thence twenty miles
in a straight line measured off in a
southwesterly direction to the Colorado
again. This will be the point of the
international boundary line according
to tho Gadsden treaty of 1853
The latitude and longitude of tlie.se
points are as follows: Junction of the
Gila and Colorado 32 degrees 13 min
utes and 32.3 seconds north latitude,
by longitude 111 degrees 30 minutes
aud 09.9 seconds west from Greenwich;
where boundary line touches east bank
of Colorado 20 miles below, 32 degrees
29 minutes and 41.15 seconds north
latitude, and 114 degrees 18 minutes
44.53 seconds west longitttac. The first
of these was found by Lieut. Miehler
in 1855 aud the last by Lieut. Emory
Tho boundary line between Califor

Survey tlio Hntl-ouil Lnuds.
Every alternate section of an area
one hundred miles wide extending'
across Arizona is what comprises the
Atlantic & Pacific railroad grant. The
grant is tinsurveyed, aud as a conse
quence Mohave, Coconino, Apache and
Yavapai counties receive scarcely any
taxea from a property that should
yield a princely Income to the above
couutics. This can only bo accomplish
ed by urgjng the survey of these lauds,
so that tho Atlantic & Pacific railroad
will have, to take title aud pay taxes.
As it is. now the territory receives no
benefit, while the grant is acknowledg
ed by the United States government to
belong to tho Atlantic & Pacific rail
road. In couscquencc of this land
belonging to tlio railroad company al-
solutcly, the United States does not
permit settlers to take it, and still the
railroad company remains exempt-fmin
taxation. This tinfawnable statu of
affairs should discontinue. If wo had
anyone but Mark Smith in congress,
this cil would long ago have been
remedied, but because he is inactive
and worthless ns a member of Congress
is no reason why the people should not'
take the matter into their own hands
and urge that steps shall bo taken to'
eompel the Atlantic & Pacific railroad
to take title to what belongs to than
and pay taxes therefor. This large"
amount of money, together with tho
money brought into the territory by
the fundinz of tho debt, would niako

leaving the post ollice at Stanton, he
called at the saloon, as usual, to see ifr
anyihiug was wanted on the route, and
ou returning saw the form of Mr.
Kydesdale lying behind the bar on the
the floor, Speaking to.him and receiv

aud found life was extinct. Summon
ing several persons at the station, an
examination was made of the person of
the deceasod, but no marks of violence
or any act to indicate any other than'a
natural death were visible. He was a
sufferer from heart disease, and his
left hand being found tightly clasped
to clothing over the region of the
heart, plainly indicated the cause of
his death. He was a sober aud iudur

and a father-in-law to J. S. Holbrook,

Stock In Apache County.
The weather during February and so
far in March has been more favorable
for an early spring anil a good grass
crop than in tho past ten or twehc
years. If it continues the cattle men
can begin their spring work by the
15th or 20th of April, aud the sheep
men can commence their spring shear
ing by the first of that month. What
was thought would be the most disas
trous season to stockmen in Ih's
county, last fall, is likely to prove one
of the most favorable for many years-.
So far the loss has been comparatively
light, and should the present favorable
conditions-continue, the loss from now
on will be trilling. This is true of all
portions of this county, except, per
haps, the southwestern portion, where
the snowfall has been unprcecdentedly
heavy aud litis lain on the ground much
longer than usual. If cattle and sheep
in that section have sun ived so far,
they are likely to pull through, and the
heay snowfall insures an abundance
of spring and summer feed St. Johns
