HON. P. J. BOLAN IS DEAD.
Peter James Bolan looked for
tho last timo on earth at his homo
in Los Angolos county, California,
tho 12th instant. Ho died suddenly
from a atroko of appoploxy, and
without a noto of -warning, passed
from timo to oternity. For many
years thoro was no man moro gon.
crally known in Graham county or
southorn Arieona, than tho subjoct
"of this skotch. Tho writer first
in Phonix, in tho spring of
1878, and from that timo until ho
loft thia county, know him intimately
in tho social, professional and
political walks of life. Ho was a
nativo of tho city
of a college in Iroland, and an
American by adoption. Coming
to this country at an early ago,
he entered tho Union army during
tho lato war, and sorved with distinction.
-Drifting west ho wont to San
Diego, whon that city by tho sea
was supposed to bo ono of the most
promising points on tho Pacific
i?ft coast, for speculation and businoss
Accidentally passing through
tho Salt River valloy, thon
and almost an arid waste,
ho was impressed with tho magnificent
possibilities of that favored
section, and rosolved to make Phonix
his homo and engago in tho
practice of law. Elootod to the
legislative assembly from Maricopa
in 1880, ho becamo prominont as a
legislator and an important factor
in tho creation of this county,
"Which was at that timo a part of
Apacho and Pima counties. Shortly
after the adjournment of tho log.
islaturo ho moved to Safford, and
was appointed District Attorney
to fill a vacancy croatod by tho
resignation of Ncri Osborn, who
had been appointed as locus ton
""ons. until Mr. Bolan could estab
lish his residoncc in this county.
From that timo ho bocamo a con
spicuous figure at tho bar and in
the forum. At tho next olection
ho was oleotod Joint councilman
from this and Coc hi twm
(.1MMHmHft0HlUUlliri io was in
tfffront rank, and recognized as
r man of decided ability, left his
. mpress on tho legislation of that
session. Assisted by Hon. Geo.
H. Stevens, who was sheriff of this
county, ho succoedod in passing a
bill to locato tho county-scat of
Graham at Solomonvillc.
In 1884 ho was elected District
Attorney, and hold that office four
yenrs, ofllciontly and vigorously
discharging his onerous duties and
""attending to a largo and lucrative
civil practice In December,
1883, he was marriod at Silver
; City, to Mrs. "Walsh, with whom
ho became acquainted when sho
I&' . fflmW&mSfoi
SA'.was a teacher lmtho rmblio schools
j&'Of this county. Ho was a membor
.of tho National Convention which
-nominated Grovor Clovoland in
ii ii f 1 tnolc n iirominnnt nart
'in tho proceedings of that body.
Mr. Bolan was a shrewd, sagacious
and earnest politician. Ho
alighted in politics, waB an un-compromising
Domocrat, and for
years novor failed to attend county
arid Territoaial conventions. In a
speech at Safford, on tho 25th of
SSoptombor, 1882, whon accepting
ftTtho chairmanship of tho

like a bolt of lightning from a cloud

or dillatory plea whatsoever
is heard; that court from

Ono of tho most meritorious bills
of tho legislative session is now
ponding in tho house. It was
by Nugent, of Yuma, and
has passed tho council. It provides
for tho extension of tho payment
of county taxes till tho seventh
day of Juno noxt. Tho concession
is ono that would bo recoivod with
joy by tho peoplo all over tho ter
ritory. To use tho trite expression,
"times are hard," and there
can bo no doubt that a strict collection
of taxes at tho present timo
would work sevoro hardship upon
many. Tho concession would not
in tho least injure tho county credit
nor materially delay tho
payment of bills, and yot would
alow timo in which every delinquent
could securo necessary cash.

tho Gila valloy has every pound of

Mr. McRao, referred to above certainly
deserves some relief as ho
spent a groat deal of money, timo
and labor in sinking tho well with
tho expectation of receiving tho reward
offered by Cochiso Co. for tho
first artesian well, and now that ho
has demonstrated tho fact that thoro
is artesian wator in that part of
tho country tho Guardian thinks
tho relief spoken of by tho Pros
