that oppose the passage of Texas
cattle through the Neutral strip
have had representatives in South
ern Texas this season trying to buy
yearlings at seven dollars, to be
driven to this same territory where

set, continues to be vindicated.

Champion Cattle company, of Col

The Tombstone: The regular
quarterly meeting of the Cochise
County Stock Growers' association

rooms of the Board of Supervisors
and a goodly number of the mem
bers were present There were two
or three initiations and the Secre

plished a great deal of good since
Socorro Bullion : The territorial
meeting of the cattlemen at Santa
Fe, on the 11th inst., which was
called for the purpose of discussing
measures relating to quarantine
inspection, etc., was attended by
about twenty stock owners. The
nib of "the resolutions adopted by
this "Congress of Cattlemen3' was
that the stockmen should in the
future make the T-rail instead of the
trail as a means of transporting
live stock. It was also resolved
that range owners ought to protect
themselves from the incursion of
barbarian cattle especially Texas
herds. A bit of woolly sympathy
was extended to the sheepmen, and
a humble acknowledgment was
made to the Governor that "Allah
is great. Long live Allah !" Allah
on his part assured the representa
tives of "the greatest industry on
earth" that he would be pleased to
confer with the pastoral .lords at
all times in matters appertaining
to their business, and would act his
own pleasure in all that he did:

George Hill, of Bowie Station, 2
cars : Lane Fisher, of Duncan, 4
cars : P. F. Buck, of Duncan, 2
cars ; and Hart Bros, of Lords
burg, N. M., 6 cars. "We have not
learned the prices obtained, but if
satisfactory, these shipments will
'be succeeded br numerous others
as there are many beef cattle in
Beef and JBullion : It doesn't
take neonle Ions to find out that
running a newspaper in Arizona is
a rapid road to wealth. Two more
naters will be started within the
next two weeks, one at Casa
Grande, bv -Mr. Elliott, and Hoof
and Horn, a stock paper at Pres
cott. The latter should be a suc
cess, as there are at present only
three daily papers at Prescott and
the town contains nearly half as
many inhabitants as Tucson.
Kansas Cow Boy: Some of
our ranchmen are embarking in the
business of raising buffaloes. There
are about fifty head on the range
of the Francklyn Land and Cattle
Company, and there" are some
buffaloes on the Goodnight range.
C. P. Jones, of Garden City has
also some. The Franklyn com
pany are paying fifty dollars a
head for buffalo calves. There is
a herd of 4000 buffaloes on the
Neutral Strip. When buffalo
robes are worth from $15 to $20
a piece, and buffalo steak 12 cents
a pound in the Dodge City market,
it would seem as if there was money
in buffalo raising. A dozen years
ago millions.-.of.buffaloes roamed at 1
will over the plains, and the7 were
slaughtered for fun and their robes.
It would not be surprising if they
would yet be more valuable than
Beef and Bullion : Mr. Achen
bach, manager of the Arizona
Live Stock and Improvement Co.,
is in town from the company's
ranch, 15 miles east of Mesaville,
in Pinal count'. The company is
an Iowa organization, with $50,
000 cash capital paid up at par,
with interest at 8 per cent added,
from date of organization. No
Stock jobbing foolishness about
that. The capital will soon be in
creased. On the ranch are several
silver mines," belonging to an
affiliated concern (The Ida Gold
and Silver Mining Company), on
which considerable work has been
done. Its from the shafts of these
mines that the company gets its
water supply, which is hoisted by
pumps. The pumps and corral
have just been completed.
Tucson Star : The initial day's
drive from this point northward of
a bunch of 1,500 head of cattle was
begun yesterday by Eugene Shaw
and L. A, Smith The cattle are
mostly yearlings and two-year-olds,
and were purchased by the "Wabash
Cattle company from Messrs. Juan
Elias and Sabino Otero. The cat
tle will be driven to the Navajo
Springs ranch, in Apache county;
near the line of the Atlantic and
Pacific railroad, distance from this
place about 350 miles. The route
taken will be by Steel's ranch near
Willcoxj Eureka Springs, Hooker's
ranch, Fort Thomasj crossing the
Gila river a short distance above
the sub:agency, and . proceeding
thence to Fort Apache. The outfit
consists of seventeen vaquerosj each
with three mounts and two wagons
loaded with supplies.- It is expected
the cattle will arrive at their desti
nation in about forty days.- Mess.
Shaw and Smith receive $l.o0 per
head for the delivery of the cattle
at Navajo Springs, they paying all
expenses of the drive' and making
good whatever losses,- if an, that

36th degrees of north latitude. It js 650 miles Ion?
and Soifales wide and includes some of the best
grazin glands of both Territories.. In the valleys
are many desirable tracts of agricultural land, sus
ceptible of irrigation. A sufficiency of water has
been found wherever cattle and sheep have been
grazed, and large herds have been grazed in the

A stream of funning water, the San Jose, rises
near the summi;of the Sierre Madre, and runs 75
miles eastward to'the Kio if ucrcoj and the compa

There are numerous fine valleys opening into the
vnllev of the San Tosc. flanked by grassy arid woo
ded hills, upon which there is ah open growth of
of good pine timber on the mountains, near the
railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes
of the Sierre Madre. There is a large coal field
west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex
plored, and which will afford labqffora.torge pop
ulation, there arc also coal deposits on the eastern
slope of the Sierra Madre. Many varieties of buil
ding stone are found in great abundance along the
line of the road.
In Arizona the grazing areas are supplied wtih
good water, and the United States Surveyors,' who
made the official surveys of thS country, say they
are asgood, if not better, than those of Wyoming
and Montana. The Navajo Indians grow corn
without irrigation, in the valreys of the Puerco of
the West, on the Company's lands, and in the val
ley of the Little Colorado, also on the line, of the
road good crops of corn, sorghum, oats, parity,
