) Intimate friend- of Capt. Fergus Walk
er, of tho 1st Regiment of Infantry, who
died Friday night at the Planters' House
Yesterday the Colonel was asked tho man
tier in which tho Captain contracted the
disease that lead to his death.
Capt. Walker had been associated with
Col. Brackett in Western campaigns against
the Indians, and he describes bim as a
brave and fearless boldier. During the re
cent Apache troubles Capt. Walker, with
two companies of tho 1st Hegiment of In
fiintry, was ordered trom Fort Grant to the
San Carlos sub-agency. Ho started on tho
10th day of July, and at night reached
Cedar Springs, "leaving tho following
morning for Fort Thomas, n distanco of
twenty.ono miles.. The weather was in
tensely warm, the'thcrmometer registering
110 dees, in tho shade at the fort. At that
time Col. Brackett was at Fort Thomas.
Several slragglprs reached thereon the 11th
of July, and icported the condition of tho
suffering soldiers, who, not more than a
mile from tho fort, wcro sadly in want of
water. Col. B;ackctt immediately sent a
water wagon to the relief of tho men. and
in company witli Capt. Frederick Yan
Vllet. started to investigate tho condition
of the soldiers.
"They were about three miles from the
fort," continued tho Colonel, where wo dis
covered them in a pitiablo plight. Wo
found many of the soldiers before wo
reached the main body, lying on tho sand
in the shade ot tho mcsquite trees, suffer
ing torments for want of water. Several
were deliiious. We filled the canteens,
and pnally got the men into Fort Thomas.
A number of the soldiers wcro so badly
used up that they never recovered from tho
effects of the march. Capt. Walker was
one, and he apparently never rallied, for
his sufferings increased until relieved by
death last evening."
Col. Brackett added that ho knew of
many marches in warm weather, but none
equal to theonc rclcrred to. Tho route
was through a , sandy territory, covered
with cactus, and at no point could water
be obtained. Tho soldiers started out witli
filled canteens, but their demand for water
was so crcat that tho supply was consum
ed shortjy after the fetart for the fort.

WEEKLY MINING REVIEW.
This week's review can reveal nothing
strange nor startling in tho mining world.
Everything pursues 1I19 even tenor of its
way. Tho work of development in tho
young and partially untried mines is con
tinued with vigor, und tho number jsdaily
augmented. The great producing mines
aro running along without visible change,
the mills arc' all pounding away, bullion is
being produced, and everything wears a
cheerful aspect. Thero Is hardly a doubt
left now, but that the sinking of the com
bination shaft on Contention Hill will bo
commenced ero long, 'litis will bo a work
of v.t magnitude, and cannot fairto givo
a stimulus to all branches of mining in
dustry In tho district. Below wo givo tho
latest information from the working mines
of tho district:
t. .m. & m. cb.
The west side has improved immensely
within the past few weeks. Some of the
richest oro ever extracted from a Tomb
stone mine, is now being taken out of the
slopes in there. The two shafts
arc still continued, one of which will be
used for ventilation and tho other for
hoisting purposes. Tho latter is now
down to the third level, and n station is be
ing cut out at that point. No. 1 incline in
the Uoodenough is still in ore, and looks
very promising. They are slill taking out
manganese ore from tho Lucky Cuss,
which they hope to utilizo as a fluk at the
smelter at Charleston. They have already
shipped 137 tons, and hope tohavotho fur
naec ready to start by tho latter part of
this, or the beginning of next week.
Tho usual amount ot ore is being ex
tracted from this mine, principally between
tho first and third levels. Tho quality of
tho oro is improving, and gives every in
dication of turning out better as depth is
attained. They arc still at work straight
ening tho shaft. No prospecting work is
Main crosscut wcstorlyls now extended
2 19 feet in porph yiy. Tho drift at 300 feet
is now 101 feet from main shaft, and with
in a few feet of tho 400 loot level. It will
make connection this week. They con
tinue to ship the usual quantity of ore to
the Boston mill.
The crosscuts on the COO level are being
pushed forward vigorously, and continue
to improve. Tho mine is in excellent con
dition nil through, and yields up tho usual
amount of ore. Tho sinking of the com
bination shaft jointly by this company and
tho Grand Central, may be set down as ft
certainly of the near future. All tho de
tails of tho woik aro completed, and it
only remains to select the exact location
and get tho necessary machinery on tho
ground when tho work will commence.
This promising mine is still booming.
Tho work being done is mostly in the way
of explorations. A crosscut is being driv
en across the 80-foot level, and already dis.
closes twcnty-flvo feet of vein matter,
without yet encountering tho hanging
wall. The ledge matter Is, generally, low
grade ore, with occasionally streaks of
high grade. The Board of Directors of
this mine will meet soon, after which it is
oxpectcd (that it will bo worked vigor
ously. SEA SUKOE.
Still driftiug east from Shaft No. 2
Somo very nice ore is being extracted and
the prospects are flattering in tho extreme.
Tho now double compartment working
shaft Is now down thirty-six feet in hard
limo rock. About fifteen tons of oro is ex
tracted daily from tho stopes in the old
works. Thero is no exploring being done
at present. Huachuca water is now serv
ed at tho mine, being conveyed there in an
inch and a quarter pipe from the Huachu
ca Water Co's main.
They aro still sinking ou the three
shafts. The west shaft has an immense
body of ore, aud is now down about fif
teen feet. Tho other shafts are still going
through good oro bodies and give every
indication of continuing.
Only one shaft has been at work on this
mine for the past few days. The work is
confined entirely to development, mostly
on tho 400 and 430 levels. The mine is
looking very good, aud some very high
grade oro is being extracted.
Tho new hoisting works arc now run
ning along smoothly. The cage was put
in a few days ago, and everything is m
good shape. Taking out considerable ore
between tho 100 and 300 levels. The mine
never looked better, aud now that the
hoisting machinery is in working order, it
will bo worked to its fullest capacity. Ten
stamps of tho Girard mill are still at work
on second class Contention ore, and tho
other ten have boon working on Itandolph
ore for tho past few days.
Commenced to drift west on the ore
body. Flic ore extremely rich and prom
ising to disclose a largo body when prop,
erly explored. The vein is going down
nearly vertical. Drift following the toot
wall. When the drift is extended fifty feet
will crosscut north to the hanging wdl.
The drift lias been started from the shaft
at a depth of seventy-live feet. 'Every
thing looking in excellent order. A whim
will bo placed in position for hoisting pur
poses early next wccjjj.
Tho riosbcut on tho GOO level is still be
ing driven forward. The indications of
ore aro excellent and there is every proba
bility that mineral will bo struck in a few
days.Tho stopes through the mine aro look
ing well and tho usual quantity of ore is
being shipped to the mill.
The main shaft is in a fine body of ore;
not of a very high grade, but still of n fair
quality. Tho quantity in sight is encour
aging in the extreme, and gives hope that
tho Eaglo will become one of the great
mines of the district at no distant day.
Winze No- 2 near the main shaft is now
down 110 feet, all the way in a solid body of
ore. No. 3 winze is down thirty feet, with
n drift running from it, in 00 feet. AVinzo
No. 4 down 70 feel, in a salid ore body.
The southwest drift from the winze hns
been extended CO feet, and tho northeast 7o
feet. An upraise has been started from
the level near winze No. 4, and is now up
thirty-live feet, witli drifts each way about
fifty feet. Hauling fifteen tons daily to the
mill, principally taken out of winze No.

Ideas CntijtUt on tlio Fly.
SeVerril candidates for the' favor of the Re
publican convention, have entered into
combinations which our esteemed evening
contemporary most heartily condemns.
Positively, it is most ditilcult to determine
why. How the deuce can those things be
helped? Of course it is rather unfortunate
for thoso who are on the outside, but most
delightfully pleasant for tho fellows in the
rinsr. Eaeii individual has a tangible idea
that he would like 10 win, and it is natur
al that lie should enter into any sort of
combination that may lead to the realiza
tion of his ambition, without much
thought as to who that combination might
cyneh. There is but one remedy, and that
lies in making another and stronger com
bination. Better take the remedy.Dun
bnr. A Tucson Republican contemporary sug
costs that Larkin W. Carr cannot be elect
ed to tho oflice of Sheriff of Cochise
county, becnuso lie is too honest. Such tin
opinion, coming from tlie leading Repub
lican journal of Arizona, is characteristic
of the tenets of the party it advocates, in
leaning directly aud advisatonally towards
tho candidacy of dishonest men. Well
dishonesty may bo at a premium, but the
Democracy of Cochise have camped on
the other side of the fence, aud propose to

There is nothing he may try to do, that

course, Tom's suit is but iu the nature of

T. II. Burns, a well known mining man
arrived iu this city Wednesday, from
Guvilantl, Sonora. Ho reports the people
in that section somewhat demoralized by
the frcrinit Apache ra'.tls.
The gentlemen nominated last Saturday
for precinct officers, aro in every way
worthy of tho suffrages of Democrats. In
fact the convention could hardly improve
its work in that particular. The nominees
are known to be men of sterling character,
and peculiarly adapted to discharge tho
duties to which they have been breveted
by the Democrats of this city. Judge
Felter was Comity Judge of Trinity
count', California, for four years. The
court met every six months and ho never
missed a day. His studious attention to
his duties can be perceived here daily.
Both the bar and tho public recognize in
him a sensible presiding justice. His
knowledge of law is extensive, and his
honesty is admitted by all. Mr. Smyth,
the other candidate for Justice, is a hard
working honest miner. He is a well
educated, intelligent man, who will take
to his new position a wealth of common
sense, that will be of vast more importance
to the community than the profound
knowledge of Kent and Blackstone. Tho
candidates for constables, James Kcnney
and Isaac Roberts are peculiarly fitted to
discharge the duties of that iuconsqueutial
but important oflice. Mr. Kcnney is at
present a member of the police force, and
is a careful, courageous and efficient offi
cer. Every one knows him to be fear
less iu the discharge of bis duty, cour
teous in his treatment of everybody, and
possessed of more than ordinary ability
and intelligence. Ike Roberts fills the
oflice at present, that he aspiies to for
another term, and he wilt undoubtedly be
elected. He has discharged tho duties of
the oflice promptly and well, and all who
have transacted business with him, will
vote to retain him in the olllce for another
term. The local ticket is a strong one
and will be elected without a doubt. It

Judge Charles Lindlcy, a well known
aud respected citizen of this Territory,
died between nine and ten o'clock last
Tuesday at the residence of Major Earle,
on Bruce street. Judge Lindley was one
of the best known men on the coast, and
was at one time a prominent factor in
public affairs in California. He was one
of the codiliers of the compiled laws of
California, to which work he contributed
so muoh mental labor that his health broke
