JAMES GRANT.&Proprietor luesonk September L,187L 8o9-tf CONTINUED FROM FIRST PAGE. 1873. The law requires the superintendent of public instruction to prepare iorms for reports and for the conduct of all necessary proceedings under the law ; also to have the school law published in pamphlet form. It was ascertain ed that money could not be legally drawn from the school fund for these purposes, but the necessity was so li recent to havo the school law publish ed at once for the information of the people, that I procured its publicatibn, for which payment has not been made. Much inconvenience and labor were occasioned for want of forms, but I preferred to suffer them rather than incur turtner maeoteaness lor which there was no authority of law to dis charge. The Hon. T. J. JBidwell, in his report, suggests several important amendments to the school law, and in the main I coincide with his views ; but as this subject will have attention in the Governor's message to the legis lature, it needs no further mention herein. The school law provides that the Territorial board of education shall prescribe a uniform series of text books. In pursuance of this pro vision, the series in use in California was adopted. This series is probably as good as any in use and tho board believed that the books composin it could be more conveniently and speedily obtained because ot then general use in a neighboriner State. Upon reflection, it is my opinion that it is not good, policy to adopt a uniform series for the whole Territory; but that the selection of books be left to the county superintendents. Thero are many series ot school books oi about equal excellence, and by leav ing the choice to the superintendents, tho series most familiar to the teachers in each county could be selected vvniie tne wnoie Territory is com pelled to purchase irom tho same publisher, we are prevented from tak ing any advantage ot the competition in trade, or the additional advantage of any improvements that may bo made in books. In conclusion, I beg leave to say that the friends of education have reason to feel encouraged at tho prog ress made in the brief period since the establishment of free schools in Ari zona. Without books, school houses or teacner to commence with, in less than two years, we have put the free school system fairly and successful!' in operation throughout the Territory. It now requires no argument to im press the necessity of keeping up the institution. The schools, and the boys ind inrls beins: raised to a life of usefulness through their agency, can be seen and they a more eloquent appeal for the fostering care of the Territory, than any language I can use. Since my appointment, I have visited every school district in the Territory and most of them several times. I have receive! the cordial support and assistance of the people each of the districts ; and if we have not done all we could wish for educational advancement, it has not been for want of aid and symphsithy of the people. Respectfully Yours. A. P. K. Safpokd, Ex-officio Superintendent of Public Instruction. THE CITIZEN. TUCSON, PIMA COUNTY, ARIZONA. faatnii-tlay, UVTareli 15, 173. The Texas and Pacific engineers are at work on the Gila near old Camp Goodwin about two weeks ago, and working their way westward again. Within twelve months, tho whole route from Texas to San Diego has been once and much of it two and even three times skilfully examined. While there appears to be some delay in beginning actual pick and shovel work at San Diego, there is ample ev idence being continually shown that the early completion of the whole line is a nxed tact with the company, upon which the public can safely rely. During tho present week Wm. B. Hooper & Co. shipped goods as fol lows : To new Camp Grant, Eowell & Taylor and Antonio Contreras, 55,000 lbs. sutler goods; Florence by Jesus Contreras and Noriega, 20, 000 lbs. citizen freight ; Camp Grant. by divers teams, 30,000 lbs. govern ment and about 4,000 lbs. for station keepers. David Neahr, during tho week, loaded Buckhart & Fredley's, his own, and Hank Williams' trains with govern ment ana citizen ireight for various points in the Territory Sentinel, March 8-. Facta for Pre-emptors. The following is by the TJ. S. Land Register at Sacramento, California and sets forth the facts which ought to be better known in Arizona than they seem to havo been, judged by apprehensions recently expressed by many pre-emptors . There still seems to be some misun derstanding about the time for proof and payment in pre-emption cases. The rule is this : First when a party settles before the land is surveyed, he must file his declaratory statement within three months from the filing of the township plat, and within thir ty-three months after the filing of such plat must make proot and pay. ment. Secona wnen ne settles on surveyed land be must file his declar atory statement within three months after his settlement, and must prove up and pay within thirty-three months after his settlement. The act of March 22, 1872, was not intended to and does not shorten anybody's time. If a pre-emptor' time does not run out, under the rule above stated, before March 22, 1873 he need not pay any attention to the act above referred to. That act only extends the lime of those whose time would have expired before March 22 1873, provided such law had not been nassed. Parties, therefore, whose time under the rule first stated would have expired under former laws before March 22, 1873, must prove up before that time. It is proper to state, how ever, that it will probably bo held sufficient if proceedings to prove up aro commenced before March 22, 1873 that is. citations issued, a day set for hearing, etc. Obituary. Governor Safford for many years intimately knew Judge Samuel Todd, who recently died at Hardyville, and he furnishes The ClXlZEX with these remarks which we have many reasons for believing en tirely due tho character of deceased : By the death of Judge Todd, the Territory loses one of its truest and best citizens. Few men possessed a nobler heart or a more genial dispo sition. His company was sought by youth and age, and whether rich or poor, he had smiles and good cheer for all. In his dealings, he Avas just and honorable, and so sympathetic and generous was ho towards his lei low men, that his means generally passed irom him almost as fast as ac quired ; and although ho undoubtedly left behind considerable means, if honesty to men and kindly treatment or the poor, the widow and orphan avail anything in the great Hereafter, he has laid up treasures there more precious than silver or gold. He was a native of Indiana : came to Califor nia from St. Louis in 1849; was en gaged in mercantile business for many years at Yankee Jim in Placer county; afterwards kept tho Metropolitan Hotel in San l1 rancisco ; camo to An zona about ten years ago and settled at Mohave, where he has been princi pally engaged m mercantile business. For nearly three years he held the office of probate judge for Mohave count', aud resigned tho position late in 1872. Apportionment of School Funds. The Territorial board of education met March 1 present A. P. K. Saf ford and L. M. Jacobs of the board, The treasurer's report to the board showed 1,406 51 to the credit of the Territorial school fund. Tho school census reports from the several coun ties showed -12 children in Mohave, 103 in Maricopa, 211 in Yavapai, 600 in Yuma, and 603 in Pima; upon which basis this apportionment was made, viz: To Pima, 544 11; to Yuma, $541 26; to Yavapai, 190 30; to Maricopa, 92 94 ; to Mohave, 37 90. The Territorial auditor was then directed to draw his warrant in favor of the several county treasurers for the amounts respectively due. Tile Mexican Congress has passed a bill authorizing the executive De partment to construct a line of tele graph from Mazatlan to TJres, the Capital of Sonora, about 400 miles from Tucson. If now our Govern ment Avould, in accordance with the recommendation of General Schofield, construct a line from San Diego or Los Angeles to Tucson, the lacking link ot 400 miles might soon bo pro vided to connect the American with the Mexican telegraphic systems on both sides of tho Continent. The same Act which provides for a line to TJres, also makes appropriation for a wire from Durango to El Paso. Alta California, Feb. 22. TO THE PUBLIC.
