TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 1887
Arizona's Advantages for
Ho Disastrous Storms, Hard Wintors or
Heavy Loss from Gold or
II. J. Gosper in the Los Angeles Kxprtss.
In all the mesi mountain country of
Arizona where water can be procured,
live itock grows and fatten on the nu
tritious grasses, and they'are never driven
from thtir'accuitomed ranges- in search
of shelter from destructive blizzards prev
alent in some, of the unfavorable sections
of the cattle country. No suffering of
stock or losses to the owners ever occur
because of coldand winter storms. The
winters are dry and warm, and summers
are cool with frequent showers.
In the high mountain ranges much
snow falls during the winter months, and
in summer it melts and runs away into
the springs and streams of the plains
The natural grazing grounds arc below
the snow level of winter and even when
the lofty mountain lops are being cover
ed with a blanket of white, cattle are
moving in comfort on carpjts of green in
the valleys below. Sobioadand beau
tiful was the hand of nature in her effort
to make Arizona the natural pasture of
the world, that every valley becomes a
half-filled manger, every mo untain side
a lasting shelter place. About a half a
million of horned cattle, many horses
and mules, and a million or more of wool
producing beasts can be counted now
by the cowboys and sheepherders in
their annual round-ups, within the ,broad
fields of the Arizona country, and yet,
there are thousands of acres ol excellant
grazing land unoccupied.
The running streams and large springs
adjacent to the grass-covered plains and
valleys, are generally occupied and in
many cases to their fullest capacity.
In many localities the water supply is
ntterly unadequate to that of the grass,
while in other localities (he supply
of water is much greater than that of the
By means of artificial dams, artesian
wells, and the piping of water out on the
grass covered plains, the herds of graz
ing animals may, and will be very great
The natural topography of the country
with a large annual rain and snowfall
there occuring makes it an easy possibil
ity to store winter snow and summer
rain for constant use. By the use of
tanks, wells and pipes, this is a very safe
and profitable business enterprise will be
enlarged to a most wonderful degree.
"Is the business of cattle, horse and
sheep raising safe and profitable?"
"Yes, it is even a safer business than
banking, when established and conduct
ed with the same usual care and caution
practiced by that class of conservative
businessmen. The original money in
vested with the same caution in a cattle
enterprise is safer, because there are less
temptation and opportunities for theft
and frand on the part of the employes
and managers. An employe or manager
cannot misappropriate the capital thus
represented in cattle and land. In bank
ing it is quite different. The cash se
curities representing the business can be
easily carried away, and instances are
numerous where this has been done. In
the live stock business, under the same
able and consevative management the
legitimate losses are less than those ex
perienced in banking.
As to the profit, there is even a wider
range of comparison.
No high priced bank presidents and
costly cashiers, whose salaries must be
commensurate with the style of living
which obtains with this class of men .
No expensive, non productive, high
priced cornor lot, and all the other con
comitants of a banking house which
must be very centerally located and
consequently costly to a high degree. As
the cattle business is now conducted on
the open plains of Arizona, $100,000 or
any other amount invested in live stock
running at large on public lands with
only a nominal amount of dead money
in the very rnde and inexpensive conven
iences necessary for branding the in
crease of the herds and a simple dwell
ing place for the humble cowboy, does
not require an annual outlay to carefully
care for the same, one-half as large as is
required in the banking, or any other
well-established and non-speculative bus
iness. Because of free grass and water
and the simplicity of the business, instan
ces are numerous where fifty per cent
per annum has been made in this indus
try in Arizona in the natural increase of
the herds. It is safe to say that seventy
five per cent of the matured females of a
herd will each year produce themselves
under ordinary circumstances, and even
ninety per cent increase often occurs
with small and well cared for herds.
All range animals are allowed to run at
large, being rounded up once and some
times twice a year, for the purpose of
branding the increase before they are old
enough to leave their dams. A calf
once carefully branded, requires no fui
ther care or cost till it is old enough to be
shipped to the market, and then it with
others is driven to the nearest railroad
1 station and then shipp:d to the proper
Before closing this letter it is proper to
say, however, that some parts of Arizona
are already fully stocked, and to place
ndditional animals on these ranges would
simply be business suicide. There are
numerous other localities where the busi
ness can be enlarged or established with
safety to the original investment and with
large annual profits.
We wish to say further that the live
stock industry of the plains in all the
great grazing countries, is not to-day
nearly so profitable as it was several
years ago. Notwithstanding the fact
and the present high prices obtainable
for southern California real estate tn the
long run, capital wisely invested in cattle
and horses in Arizona will pay an an
nual average profit, larger than the same
invested in land at the present fabulous
Wheat and Silver.
Nlw York July 20, 1887.
From the official returns of the Bu
reau of Statistics in Washington just pub
lished, the following rather unfavorable
results allow me to present to you:
Exports of wheat and flour since the
war on silverin July 1873, to the present
day, by fiscal years and the amounts
paid us in dollars, are exemplifying a
state of affairs most damaging to the ag
ricultural interests of this country.
During the fiscal year of July 1, 1873,
to June 30, 1874, we exported from this
country 71,039,928 bushels of wheat and
4,094,094 barrels of wheat flour. For
the wheat we received $101,421,419 and
for the wheat flour $29,258,094 or $1.42
and 8-to per bushel of wheat and $7.14
per barrel of flour. Since then we have
year after year been subjected to a con
tinual onslaught on silver bullion by the
enemies of this country, and the results
are as follows:
Fiscal year July 1, 1886, to June 30,
1887, export of wheat 100,809,212 bush
els and 11,328,872 barrels of wheat flour.
For the wheat we received $89,803,761,
and for the wheat flour $51, I74,598i or
for wheat in grain, 89 cents per bushel,
and for flour $4.51 '4 per barrel.
In fact we have given during the past
fiscal year 29,769,484 bushels more
wheat, in grain, yet we have received
$1 1,617,698 less for it. Now us to wheat
flour we have shipped nearly three times
as many barrels of flour, yet we have not
been able to get twice as much in money
as we did during fiscal year ending June,
1874; in other words, we have lost on
eve-Jy bushel of wheat 53J cents, and on
every barrel of wheat flour $2.63.
In 1873 when the war on silver was in
augurated in Congress, the ounce of fine
silver was worth $1.32, to-day it is
worth 96 cents per ounce fine. Of course
India has profited in exact proportion as
we have suffered; but then the traitors to
this country have the satisfaction of hav
ing injured the agricultural interests of
the United States of America, and bene
fitted Birtish India hugely.
How long will the people of this coun
try be ruled by the Anglomaniacsand the
press, bought and paid for with English
money, in the East especially?
It is high time that the West rises in
its might and tramples under foot the
hirelings and the Anglomaniacs who have
betrayed the American farmers, who
year after year lose millions of dollars,
besides foster British interests in India,
and all on account of British inspired
and paid for articles against silver as a
If silver bullion was admitted on the
par with gold bullion at the U. S. Mints
and coined unlimited, the price for silver
bullion would immediately advance to
$1.2929 per ounce, fine, and wheat would
sell at 34 per cent higher in value, or in
place of 89 cents per bushel for export
we could receive $1 . 19 per bushel.
Last year's crop of wheat was over
457 millions of bushels which at 89 cents
per bushel, represents a value of over
406 million of dollars, while with silver at
bar, the returns for 457 millions of bush
els would have given the handsome sum
of over 543 millions of dollars. Truly
the American interests in wheat have snf
fered over 137 millions of dollars, while
the producers of silver bullion have lost
only a little over i6 millions of dollars.
At this rate we silver men can stand the
racket as I to 8; or in other words, we
lose only one-eighth to what the agricul
tural interests of this country are sub

Many seams were opened in the Sierra
Madre mountains, in the foothills and
also through the cultivated sections. In
the foothills of the La Cabellera range
occurs the principal crack which is 21
miles in length with an average width of
15 feet, rrom uauasabes to Bavispe
three are many seams varying from one
foot to five in width. On the road from
Bacerac to Bavispe are to be seen many
more of less importance.
During the petiod of the seismic dis
turbance the waters of the river that
flows through Bavispe ovci flowed its
banks, where but three days previous
there not enough to irrigate with.
Many new springs burst forth and some
old ones became dry, and after the earth
quake the ground in the valley was no
ticed to be very loose and moist. Lands
were found to have sunken and upheav
als to have occurred. After the first
shock subteranean noises were heard
and were followed most invariably by
more quakings, having a duration from
nine to twelve seconds. In the first
moments of the ground disturbances the
forests were set on fire and almost des
troyed. An extraordinary change in
the temperature on the day of the earth
quake transpired. In the morning and
afternoon a heavy mist, through which
period the two extremities of heat and
cold were frequently repeated. Winds
from the southwest and north .vest blew
in tempests and were accompanied by
thunder and lightning and showers of
rain. Bavispe has been shaken to its
foundation, and its inhabitants who
have taken refuge on the hill in the vi
cinity are suffering the greatest misery,
notwithstanding the fact that Governor
Don Louis Torres and others have re
sponded nobly in their call for succor.
In a compilation given in the Con
stitution it is found that there were 42
killed by the first shock in Bavispe and
29 wounded. The actual loss of proper
ty, comprehending, besides Bavispe,
San Miguelito, Becauyc and vicinity, was
OPUTO AND VICINITY.
Seven volcanoes were noticed for two
days after the earthquake from Oputo.
One in Los Casitas mountains with its
crater at its northern apex; two in the
Guepari range; two in Bacapari; one in
Las Joyas and the other in the Saucito;
bnt none gave forth lava. The same
effects on the earth and the peculiar at
mospheric disturbances were noticed in
Oputo as were in Bavispe.
The loss of life is given at nine, while
the destruction of property foots up $30
000. He Bid too Low.
The possibilities of mining ventures
in the West, as well as some of the disap
pointments here, are illustrated in that
story which Governor Houser of Mon
tana tells of his former partner, A, E.
Davis, who is now conducting an inde
pendent banking business at Helena,
Montana. At one time he loaned $6,
000 to a miner of Butte City. The in
terest was rolling up at the rate of 3 per
cent a month and the total indebtedness
had reached $6,300, when the miner
agreed to turn over this property to
Mr. A. E. Davis in full payment sf his
Davis accepted this proposal and then
offered Houser a half interest for $1,650.
Houser was in the banking business too,
and while he was perfectly willing to
make the arrangement with Davis he
objected on banking principals to pay
any portion of the interest. He offered
Davis $750 as half of the principal inves
ted for a half interest, but Davis refused,
and he put up a small mill on the prop
erty which has since been known as the
Livingstone mine. He put some men to
work and developed if and in a year's
time he had taken out $25,000 worth of
gold and silver. The second year, with
a' further outlay for machinery, he took
out $50,000 worth of ore and then he sold
thirteen-sixteeths of the mine for a
cold $1,500,000. Governor Houser has
been kicking himself ever since to think
how narrowly he missed his share in this
