ruisos, Ariz., May 10. Tucson Is
humping Itsolf today, nnd tlio home
Democrats 113 well as the visiting states
men profaned tho Sabbath by holding n
caucus in overy quiet corner. Tho light
uaxed hot Saturday at tho county con
entiou. After tho break of day on
Saturday, any effort for or talk of liar
moiiy was but a flimsy pretext, it was
bittur war to tho end. Hughes was ac
cused of allowing a Kepublicnn friend
of Ins to interfere and mniiago his can
viss, and disputes occuned over this
matter for a couple days preeeeding the
holding of the county convention until
the feeling became intouso, nnd the
lijht between tho factions greatly em
uutered. Visiting Democrats were astonished
at the extremely bitter light among the
1'imi county Democrats.
Tlio county convention was n "dilsy."
It blossomed, not unlike tho rose, but
instead of the sweet oder, wo had the
smell of brimstone.
fhs llrst tight occurred on the tem
porary chairmanship. In this issue,
i leauti-Hughes men wero successful,
V. V Brown being elected temporary
nmriiun; but when if came to tho per
manent chairman, Editor Hughes 'pre
vailed, and got away with his oncmies,
electing Fred Hughes chairman much
ti the disgust of the other faction.
1 .-ory move was watched by both fnc
loin with feline constancy, and the
participants in the fracas jumped
am ind with mi uneasiness born of sus
picion. When the smoke of battle lifted, it
wa found that the anti-Hughes men
nail elected iivo and the Hughes men
uo delegates to the territorial conven
tion. Then came a determined purpose on
the part of tho victotious.factlon to com
pel the two Hughes men to join hands
M'tli their moro successful brethren, nnd
support ono candidato, theroby present
ing a solid front from rim a county in
Ml day Sunday the politicians of tho
' great party of tho pist'i worked; in
i'-no instances never ubpwing up Ht
b una to a singlo meal during the day,
o t to those acquainted with tho habiti
o the devotees of froe trade, this does
n it create surprise. Katlug is regarded
ai a pure loss of time. No votes are
nudo by it, nnd a Democrat rather loses
caste by getting full of food.
Die opera house was gorgeously de
crated for the territorial love feast,
fun star spangled banner o'erhung tho
pates of tho wise men of the party
and the stage was decorated in gorgeous
svle. Tucson never does things by
naives, and emblems of penco nnd plo'i
ty are dear to the warlike hearts of the
tH-ii-eiuiatits at the invincible hero of
Emblems of war also wero at hand.
A relte of antiquity from ono of the
choice cabinets of Tucson, in the form
o( an antique Mexican aword weighing
aoout ten pounds, was offered to dele
g.t'oj by our enterprising undertaker as
a" persuader" to be used in thoconven
ti n The Democratic faco paled n little,
but fought shy of our man of exigencies,
and the sword found its way back to its
hiding place, while the undertaker, in
cnarin, fell on tue ueek of his assis
tants and wept.
On one eiilo of the opera house was a
banner with tho strange design, "Tariff
Reform," tho alius for "Freo Trade." On
the other was a parody on Mark Smith's
services in tho houso of representatives,
"Statehood for Arizonn." It was ex

Marie Smith's grea. services to tho terri
tory of Arizona in enduavorlng to In
crease the interest of our bonds ( ?) nfter
they wero sold, but tho Democratic dec
orators forgot to tnomorize Marcus on
tins point, but out of kindness of heart
we mention tho matter here, that tho
people of Arizona shall not forget to
whom they owe this attempt to increase
their burdens. The Democratic memory
is proverbially forgetful, and Marcus
must not feel Blighted because he was
neglected. It is so Democratic you
We looked in vain, too, for the mysti
cal figures of tho votb of the Mormon
precinct of I'ima, the banner precint of
the Democracy, and they too wore mias
ms. Alas! how neglectful uro the Dem
ocrats of the work of their Mormon
brethren. Amidst such n profusion of
decorations, what a volumo this silence
speaks. Twins in iniquitous politics,
Mark and his Mormon followers are
shadows of memories of a happy past.
Tho evergreens commemorated the vcr
duro of tho- Democratic mind.
When it was learned that Ynvap.il
county had for n rallying cry "Any
thing to beat Maricopa or Pima," on
account of tho removal of tho capital,
considerable feeling was evinced and
bitterness agiunrt Yavapai exhibited.
It had been that county's policy in po
litical matters over since' the capital
was removed, nnd Mohave, Apache and
Coconino have ably seconded Yavapai's
nttempts to punish the south. Tho
present location of tho capital snili the
convenience of Yuma, Olla, I'lnal,
Graham,. Muriopa nnd Plum counties,
and they ought to Beo to it that the
doughty northern quartette comes off of
men- iiign peaes uu ot revenge, aucn
a policy will precipitate) Yavapai county
into the eoup.
The Demorruts of l'ima feel sore and
hostile towards Ynvnpal. The olt re
peated nniinosity of Yavnpat was plain
ly exhibited in tho malter-pertainliig
to tho convention today, and" the De
mocracy will be n decided loser by the
bad fccllirir induced. Ynvnpai county
will have to como down. In this con
vention she- got away with a delegate
nnd alternate, and it was proposed to

native modesty that sho did not do it.
No person present during tho proceed
ings of tho Democratic convention today
will deny that It waB full of bad feeling,
and on tho very aurfaco was a light
through and through. Discord ran
rampant, nnd personal nnimosity pre
vailed, nnd bo great was tlio feeling
nmong tho faithful, that nt tho mass

impossibility for tho sneakers to wako

FROM SALT LAKE TO THE GULF.
t'huiiiix May ho Tapped by a Great
A Crying Demand iray ho Fulfilled
and Untold Millions of Wealth
Again news comes to TiiKHxruniiCAN
from n semi-official eourco of a monster
railroad enterprise, which, if carried
out, will bo of vast importanco to Ari
zona, to Salt River valley, and to Phie
nix, and will open up gold and silver
mines, tho richness of which probably
never have beenequaled. Those who aro
conversant with the topography ot the
inter-mountain region from the Sierra
Nevada to tlio Rocky mountains know
that tho country abounds in mineral
wealth from tho British possessions to
tho Gulf of Mexico.
Our information is that a proposition
is being considered by a syndicate of
capitalists to build, by amalgamation
and tho assistance of subsidies and
L'rants, a through line from Ogden and
Salt Lake into the interior of Mexico.
From Ogden to Salt Lake and south
the scheme is to obtain tho property of
tho Utah Central to Maut. From
this point the proposed road takes a
southeasterly coursoto Mormon Fort, on
the Colorado river, theuco down the
Colorado valley to the junction oi tho
Little Colorado, and up that valley
still in a southeasterly course to n
point somo miles northeast of Flagstaff,
whero the road leaves the river and runs
across the desert to the latter town.
From Flagstaff the amalgamation
firocess A'ill probably be again adapted
ly tho acquisition of tho Mineral Belt
road, now running soma distance south
from thero; thence building through
Clear Creek canyon, down Fassitt creek
to Us junction with tho Verde and down
that valley to Phoenix.
From this city tho road is to run south
Into Moxico, probably into Guaymae.
Thero has long been a demand for a
road from the south to tho north in the
intcrmountain region sncli ns the
one proposed, and such an enterprise
would not only open up an nyonuo for
transportation, now badly needed, but
it would bo the means of developing nnd
making paying property of silver nnd
gold mines "thot can nofnow bo worked
on accout of their isaoation.
From Ogden to the north, through
Butto, Anaconda, Helena nnd other fa
mous mining centers of Montana runs
the Utah Northern, operated by tho
Utah Southern company, and with tlio
buildins, or really continuation, of the
proposed lino south into Mexico, tho
Butte and Anaconda smelters, the Inttcr
of which is tho largest in tho world,
would handle all the Mexican ore now
shipped to Kansas City and Denver for
Our information is that the company
propose to work quietly until they ob
tain concessions they desire snd then
push the work to completion.
The routo has been covered by a look
out party, and wo understand prelimi
nary work will be begun by a company
of expert engineers in a short time.
Subsidies will probably be asked from
cities and counties through which the
road will pass, and valuable grants aro
expected from the Mexican govern
ment. Tlio progress of this now scheme will
bo watched with a great deal of interest
by citizena of Arizona, as it will prove
of inestimable value to tho entire south
west, and will certainly make Phoonix a

A RUSH OF SETTLERS TO THK FER
Scramble for Land Under the Wollley
Canal A Rich Fanning Region Unex
celled Fruit Land I'rosress.
The mad rnBh to Gila Bend to obtain
land under tho Wolfley canal ia unabat-
ing, and sixteen parties left this city last
night to locnte in tho fertile locality.
Many of the parties are ladies who
have a keen perception of the superior
advantages of the Gila Bend country.
The Wolfley canal which is now in
couree ol construction by a wealth com
pany from Peoria, III., opens up a largo
area of tho finest fruit land in the west.
Califormans, even in the famous River
side country, acknowledces the superi
ority of this section and established the
sincerity of their claim by locating new
homes even before tho canal was com
menced. The soil is of alluvial formation and
as fertile as a Jersey truck garden.
Tho climate has no superior and but
few equals for orange culturo as well as
for grapes, figs, dates, apricots, necta
rines and the smaller fruits and berries.
Vegetables grow to enormous size and
in prolific qunntitiea, while the sugar
beet, which is attracting tho attention
of dulco capitalists from all parts of tho
country, eeeins indigenous.
The construction of the canal now be
ing assured, there is no doubt but every
foot o! land embraced under it will be
taken up by homeeeekers within the
next few months, and ere another year
lolls by this fnvored section will be
dotted with farm Iiouscb, young orchards
and fields of waving grain.
Whilo there Is speculation as to the
opening of Indian reservations this "cet-
tlemcnt is a substantial reality and the
soil under tho Wollley canal is unex
celled. Agricultural lands are now
scarce and this choice spot has been
made so by enterprising capital, well

Jailer Sheridan had on exhibition
yesterday a valuable ns well as novel

card board with windowB of tinfoil,
which reuecta credit on the builder nnd
shows that kleptomania and not lack of
ability to earn a livelihood prompted

The castle is supposed to represent
the market place in Guadalajara. Mexi
co, and those who have seen the mag
nificent structure recognize the ability
displayed in executing the model.
With crude material, a broken 'jack
knife and a little paste, the structuro of
many rooms, halls, corridors, pillars and
matchless symmetry was built.
Many, admiring citizens visited tho
parlors of the herifra olDco yesterday
and every ono was loud in praise of the
mechanical skill displayed.
Upon leaving for Yuma to servo out
hia two year's sentence, Lepez presented
tho castle to Mr. Sheridan, and a model
of the Episcopal church of this city
which is equally welt constructed, to
Under-ShenffBarry, as a markof esteem
for kind treatment.
