Arizona Mining Interests The Railroad Situation The Politi cal Mill The Paris Commune etc. Sax Fkancisco, August 20, 1871 Enough has been gathered during the past ten days for a column or two of an average interest. Last Saturday 1 went across the bay to " call " on the extensive acquaintance made there. and incidentally 'caught the most se vere cold I ever remember having, and have been doctoring ever since. I dis posed of the calling, however, in a lump the men all being on the street at a primary. And here a word about how one from Arizona is received any where outside of the Territory. Usu ally or with most rare exceptions, the first said is some sort of question or allusion in reference to your " hair, This sort of thing generally follows every one into Arizona, but it is the first thing met when coming out, and has been intensified by the newspaper and other accounts from there durin. the past six months. Everybody de pends greatly on the telegraph nowa days. Personally, there is little of interest to Arizona. I believe there were sev eral people to go by to-day's steamer Judge Reavis and Captain Fleason, the name of the latter being mention ed bsfore in connection with the Tiger and other matters in Bradshaw. The Captain, I am credibly informed, is a very plucky and derserving person, and were Bill Lent's purse at his com mand, he would scatter it broadcast in Bradshaw he is so on nettles over the subject. But Lent's buckskin is more carefully managed than ever before, though I believe from what has been seen and untold, he is desirous of prospecting his Tiger interest in a handsome manner. Captain Grant returned south by last steamer, having arranged with Lent to carry out things needed to that end. His Tiger case recalls Lent's experience with the Rising Star claim in south Idaho. That cropping and subsequent work was not much unlike the Tiger in looks, though the Tiger quartz is really of a different character, and there is also more of it. There, how ever, JLent erected great reduction works, which lie cold, and I believe he failed to sell to that "English Com pany. JNow, 1 inter, ho is deter mined not to be m a hurry about the mill, but sell to that " English Com pany " beforehand, and to do so, wants to handle the Tiger stock generally. He has two chances, you see ; ono to sell betore great expenditure, and the prospect of the ledge developing largely so he can afford to keep it It is almost pitiful to see how weak and helpless individuals with crude " feet" are in an old shrewed market of this kind ; nothing less than an equal divide of interests is considered for a moment to begin with, and after you are once partially committed, it rarely happens that your peanut stand is not more than upset with so thin a popu lation on the whole coast; and a rail road through so great extent of min eral country, the weaker sisters, as Idaho and Arizona on either side, must bide their time. There is every where little if any doubt expressed as to the mineral wealth of Arizona, but this accursed greeting of "How' your scalp? " will for the time prevail over that or any allusion to the condi tion ot your "feet. The Central Pacific Railroad having swallowed all the smaller try oi iron thoroughfares hereaways, the meal can be digested at leisure, and will be so iar as extensions south are con- ct.rneu, until the universal uproar about anti-subsidy takes a reaction Say what you please, it is almost ad missable the way the movements have been made all round, (itoing south there seems no use or chance for other parties to chip in. The main trunk of the Central (or Southern) Pacific is graded by branches building or supr- gested for every nook and corner, both next the coast and east of the range, xne cnarters can oe neia good on short sections constructed annually Should the Atlantic and Pacific (35 th parallel) extend rapidly -west, the people here might hurry along accord ingly regardless of other aid, but now these Califormans push out a piece of trunk or branch as ieisurelv and not unlike so manv chess-players. If a local community threaten to occupy the hind with a road of their own, the big company can reach a paw over the ground and hawl m the chestnuts as quickly as a cat playing with a mouse, The Oregon end of their interests will o ahead uninterruptedly the actual settlements of the country constitute business to justify it. The coast south, however, is quite easily favored by steamer transportation the settle ments being so near the beach as a rule. It were mere pastime m com parison, to build the southern road up the Sau Joaquin valley, whose arid. regions nave no business to pay a railroad at present. So, you see, in. reason, there is now no opposition nor will be to the great central power, Milton S. Latham headed a list of men of money to connect the Yallejo route via bouthern Idaho with the Union Pacific at Ogden, but such a detour suggested at once to anyone conversant with the proposed unin habited route, as it were, that the move was but a grand bluff game to sell out the "short route to Sacra mento," etc., and quit the business ban Francisco will hereaiter as retofore build nor extend no aid worthy of note directly to rail roads beyond the limits of her own streets. She has a way of her own that will not change short of a gen eration to come. She has been selfish regarding outside improvements ex cept mines, and is very guarded on that score ot late years. jNoav comes Von Schmidt's tunnel at Lake Tahoe, under the auspices of the Central Pacific Railroad, which will do away with the expensive snow- hed system in the Sierras, and end ill nonsensical talk about an opposi tion overland road anywhere between tin Columbia and Colorado rivers, and the cream of the local trade of the coast will in the meantime be hedged by this great machine to the like geographical" extent. People may fancy other conclusions, but the facts seem everywhere written by the very mountains or eternal hills. You pays your money and takes your choice. The political mill is running lively throughout the State, and there are so many local causes of various kinds to produce certain effects on election day, that they would puzzle a Philadel phia lawyer and exhaust the space of volunio to unravel and present be fore the readers. The heads ot the respective tickets Avill doubtless be scratched considerable in favor of the Republican, while many close calcula tors on either side are surely of the belief at present, that the entire Ice publican ticket will come, in from three to five thousand ahead. But three short weeks sometimes constitute long enough period to reverse all such opinions, and there is many a lip twixt the cup and the slip anyhow. Haight, holding the Governorship four years, has much to answer for, of course, though there has been many a worse ruler than-he ; while Booth, his competitor, comes on the stage with clean skirts, a clearer and better intel lect, and an unexceptional speaker and person generally. Haight has the hearty contempt of a large breadth of the rank and file of his party, for his having been once as black as any of us, besid'es his Puritanical ways. Moreover, the general administration of the State government lias not come up to the promises of the party in power ; they have not in various in stances contented themselves with the mere pie awaiting their hungrv ac cession, but have bitten into the plate ramer glaringly. Tins campaign the Republicans are working as bar- moniously as could be -expected, and juugmg oy past close counts, if they uuu u ""'j tiiu ouuo is reany mon Democratic than all hands believe Ihe ltepublicans have crumbs of fort in the news from North Carolina Montana, etc., and so far as sneaker go, they have the more valuable aid from the East, though now I see that Sunset Cox will throw a parting ray of his well known wit and logicover the closmg campaign on the Demo cratic side. The railroad is a blessing in respect to these new faces on such occasions. If your average Eastern statesman brings no different construc tion ot the case, his looks, gestures ana general stage strut and make-up, are somecning ot a relief indeed. don t know but it would be best at least as well were the stumping svs tern to give way entirely to the offices ot the telegraph and newspaper. Let candidates write out their platforms to begin with, and then confine their discussions to print. Thev could never complain ot being falsely reported, and people would be thereb- saved from catching cold, and tramped on tender places, and temptations of serious nature removed. Let compul sory education and voting then be come bulwarks of the general politi cal structure, and the country will go along as noiselessly and successfully as need be. Last night I heard Frank Pixley tell the story ot his Trip to Europe. including his personal view of Paris under the different excitements and sieges up to last month. He paid Gambetta a deserved compliment, and think only tardy iiistice tc that much berated political faction the Commune. The heroism displayod by that red-hot people women and all was certainly deserving of more than a sneer. Pixley truly says that the Commune is sadly at a disadvantage on the score of defense having been nearly all massacred in their tracks as they fought from street to street, and have no press in Europe to speak for them; but he thinks no grand mo narchical lie Avili neutralize the alarm ing effects to Kings over the great waters. Pixley speaks from personal observation of the good rule in Paris under the Beds before the Theirs' party bombardment; that "nother version of the vandalism is due the world, and will soon be forthcoming. The Commune (or people) theory. modified, is not confined to Paris or France, but is asserting itself every where among civilized and what are ailed enlightened nations. The more steady English and German rulers will guide their Commune into better channels, and the United States must not let the leadership of her Commune out to the demagogues of the country, as the labor leagues so far illustrate. According to Pixley, and he is no one- horse thinker, Arizona will do Avell if she can change off John Apache for Johnny Crapaud especially as the Territorv is given to rainfalls of frogs. Pixley's descriptions were graphic and thrilling, and worthy ot a more ex tensive report than average. Mrs. Cady Stanton has come and gone, and left a better impression on " the wo man queston," than all others of her style combined. Theatrical amuse ments are rather stupid the political managers seem to be most successful in introducing new faces of note, and their numerous banners on the out ward Avails detract from the usual dis play on tne mnuic msicie. xnis city seems as usual like the head, heart and . belly of every interest in the State is ' the State itself as yet, and as before said, I like it better than ever.
