A Tombstone miner ha written a
letter of inquiry, to the EI Paso Bul
lion, asking for information concern
ing a unit. The snsweris here given:
"In buying and selling ores a unit
is understood to be one per cent of a
ton or twenty pounds. The price per
unit of lead paid by a smelter is de
termined by its looition, transporta
tion and all other costs of delivering
the lead into the New York market in
a rt fined state, in order that the New
York price'for it may be obtained. The
smelters' price for lead in the sou fa-
west is uiually forty cents per unit
(twenty pounds) of the lead contained
iu ore, when tho New York price is ! j
per cwt. When it is $4.05 the price
per unit is 41 cents; when quoted at
$4.10 the price per unit is 42 cents,
and bo on. For each advance of five
cents the price per unit is increased
one cent, and for each decline of five
cents below $1 the price per unit is
decreased one cent below 40 cents.
The price, however, is subject to varia
tion, according to the character of the

THE DOUBLE MURDER.
Some Fni'tN Klicitci! liy n Com-
ner'n Jury at Vik'i.
The nnstery surrounding tho recent
murder of two Mexicans near Sul
phur Springs deepens with the addi
tional light thrown upon it by the
testimony taken before a rooner's
jury at Wilcox. From the Stockman
the following facts are taken :
"The men, .Manuel Castillo and
Guadalupe Castillo, cousins, came to
Wilcox several month since from Sil
ver City, New Mexico, and while here
had no vocation, claiming they were
looking for work. Tuesday morning,
a weci: ago, the men left here, telling
Mr. Ruth they were going to Tomb
stone, to receive some money for a
certain piece of real estate they had
recently disposed of there, while other
evidence showed they went for the
purpose of looking for work. By n
letter recently written, however, it
would appear that the main object of
the visit was to sec the brother of one
of them, who was recently committed
to the county jail from Wilcox for lar
"From the time of their lea ing
here no word was received from them
until the report of their being found
dead, and it is supposed from the
lapse of time that they were on their
nay back to Wilcox.
"From the evidence of Messrs. Re
uaud and CadweU, it appears that the
men had camped Saturday night near
where their bodies were found, and
rarlj Sunday morning were surprised
by their murdcrei or murderers and
ran about n hundred yards before King
shot down. The one was shot through
the right arm, the ball lodging in his
richt side, and a second shot delivered
from close range in the temple, his
face being powder burned. The other
man was shot once under the left eve.
Several 44-calibre center fire Winches
ter shells were found eloe to the
iMMlie, alo an old bone-handled knife,
which was recognized as l-longfng to
one of the murdered men. On ac
count of the recent heavy rains all
igns of any strugule were destroved.
The pockets of the mn had been
rifled, and their pistols, belts, blanket
and saddles were misting; however, it
is not b-'lieved the motive for the deed
was robbery, as it is a known fact that
but very little money, if any, was in
Vt'lio It 1.1 ll?
A representative of the PudsrECTor:
was allowed to be present this after
noon at an interview by the Sheriff
with Carrillo, a brother of Manuel
who was killed o mysteriously last
Sunday at Sulphur Springs. He did
not know till after he had been ques
tioned what it was all about, and not
until the Sheriff pulled some letter
from a drawer, which were found upjn
the dead man, did the truth dawn
upon him that hi brother had been
killed; then her wept like a child. He
contradicts the .lory that his brother
came to Tombstone, and says that he
owns a mule team and was freighting
to Globe. He knows of no one who
owed hi brother a grudge and can not
account for the killing It is certain
that the two men never came to
Tombstone. Sheriff Kelton telegraph
ed his deputy at Wilcox to go to the
scene of the killing and investigate
every circumstance. This was done
as soon as the report reached here last
Tuesday and other steps to sift the
matter 'have heen taken. It is the
opiaion of several cattle mn in the
valley that the men were caught with
stolen stock in their possession ami a
fight enrurd. Another theory is that
they were followed from Wilcox and
killed for their guns and saddles by
some of their countrymen. They
never owned property in Tombstone
and never came here.
