Price per Year, $5 ; Six Months, TTJC SO 1ST, ARIZONA Saturday.-Sept. 27, JL73. Sax Francisco, Sept. 21. Green backs 8990. A People's party has been organ ized in California to place in tho field candidates for judicial offices. A EIRE broke out in the Yellow Jacket mine at Gold Hill on tho 20th instant, and six men were burned or suffocated to death. The survivors of the ill-fated Polaris were - picked up near Capo York on the 2d of July 'by a British Whaler. Theo: P. "White returned on the 26th. from tho Patagonia mountains "While away he surveyed those mines and twoj mill-sites for the San Anto nio mining company of which Thos Yerkes is agent. He informs us that several others desire to have surveys made for mines in the Patagonia mountains. He returned by the old town of Santa Cruz, in Sonora, and found everything dull and the usual complaints of depredations by the Apaches.. On tho 15th a raid was made upon them and eight horses and one burro were taken. The trail of tho stolen property led' to tho Dragoon mountains on Cachise's re serve. It seems that the removal of C'. E. DeLong Minister to Japan was oc casioned by the treachery of three persons whom he had assisted to posi tions in Japan. One of them entered into tho plot at tho very time Mr. DeLong was in "Washington, trying to get him appointed Consul General. Now these creatures and their motives are understood and although they have succeeded in getting Mr. DeLong removed from a position where he was most useful, yet ho will rise higher than ever before, while his maligners will sink :below contempt. How often have we seen this trait of char acter developed in those we have loved and trusted and for no cause savo that ambition leads small minds into the delusion that to rise they must tear some ono down, and all such gener ally attack first their benefactors. "We have seen it so often developed that long ago wo should have been misanthropic if it had not been for the fact that God in his wisdom and justice follows with quick and right eous punishment tho perpetrators of all such wicked and- heartless crimes and we can well afford to look upon the cheerful side of life and leave them to tho tender mercies of Him who searches all hearts. "We understand that the Mexican arrested for tho murder of Edward Lumley, at Kenyon station, while en route from Yuma to Phenix, Maricopa county, in charge of the Sheriff, was taken from him by citizens living at or near Kenyon station and hung. The frequency with which the peo ple havo of late taken the lav, into their own bands cannot but bo deplor ed. If a necessity exists for such action it is unfortunate and if no such necessity exists and it is done, it is worse than unfortunate. In the present instance the act it seems to us was inexcusable The Territory had offered and paid a largo reward' for the arrest of tho accused, the officers of the law had done their whole dutjv those who had risked the danger and' undergone the hardship of making the arrest turned him over to the civil au thorities to bo punished according to law, but those who remained at home and took none of the risks, after the prisoner was securely bound, took him by force from tho Sheriff and hung him. That the accused ought to have been hung we do not doubt, and that he would have been legally Ave feel quite sure. At any rate the law should first have been tested and if that failed1 there would have been time enough then for unlawful proceedings. THE OUTIOOK FOR ARIZONA. On account of the low price of grain money is scarce and times are dull in all portions of the Territory and yet the outlook to tho future was never half so promising. Parmors with few exceptions will bo ablo this year to liquidate their debts ; large numbers of them. are accumulating. stock and raising more vegetables than usual; many will make their own bacon and pork and all are paving tho way to produco more to subsist upon and in that proportion will be compelled to buy less. More sub stantial improvements- are being made upon their farms and; better agricul tural implements are being accumu lated. Instead of the taxable property of tho country decreasing in conse quenco of tho low price of grain, a large increase will bo shown by the next assessment. This will be ex plained by the fact that no country is ever enriched by the accumulation of money alone, because money will seek avenues for investment and if not in vested in the country where it is made it will go elsewhere. This fact is illustrated by a glance at the richest mining portions of California, where millions upon millions were taken from the ground, and the country from whence it came is now almost destituto of wealth and. population Hence tho substantial prosperity, of Arizona does not depend- upon tho money that can bo annually made but upon tho farms that are converted into comfortable homes, upon- tho stock that is brought upon our plains to consume the grass that would other wise go to decay, upon the manu factories that are started to give em ployment to our people,, and to keep the means we have from going out of the Territory, and upon the mining enterprises that are developed to make a market for our produots. It is but a few months since no stock could be found in the Territory except teams that were never allowed to run at large, or a few bands of cattle that wera strongly guarded by day and brought within high walls at night. Now go where you may and tho stock has so increased that it seems as though it had' sprung into existence by magic. It is but a brief period since there were no sheep in tho Territory except a few brought here for mutton ; now there are sev eral thousand, and many thousands more are expected soon. The mines, which aro among the richest and most extensive in the world, have so far added but little to our wealth or prosperity, principally because the means that has been brought hero for investment has been used by those who knew nothing about the business or were more fond of making a show than of making dividends for tho stockholders. Such has been tho history of nearly every mining enterprise where any consider able sum of money has been expend ed. Poor men havo been prevented from carrying on mining enterprises on account of the hostility of the In dians, as no small number of men could livo in any exposed location. In proof of this statement now that we have enjoyed a few months of com parative peace, operations by individ ual miners are starting up m all directions. Arrastras aro being suc cessfully run at the "Wallapai mines, Bradshaw, "Walnut grove,. Peeples valley, and besides, 'William Smith and Peter Taylor have erected and are running a ten stamp mill on the Vulture Lode near "Wickenburg and it is proving to be one of the best pay ing properties on the coast. On the Francisco river recently, 150 tons of copper were shipped and tho work of smelting is still going on. Raymond & Ely, whose mine in Nevada is yearly adding 4,000,000 to tho circulating medium of the world, have invested largely in the "Wallapai mines and believe them equal to the Pioche mines from which they have made vast fortunes, and a recent private letter informs us that they have purchased a mill and will at" once erect it on the Hibernia mine. There is also considerable placer gold at different points being taken out. Thanks to the efforts of Delegate McCormick and officers of the Army and to tho untiring energy of General Crook, his officers and men, we shall soon have a telegraph through the Territory and shall then be in almost Instant communication with the civil ized world. Thousands of men aro now at work grading and laying rails on the great Trans-Continental Bail way that be fore four years have passed will be completed through the Territory and give us cheap and speedy transporta tion to all portions of .the United States. Our Territory is out of debt and' we have money ahead in the Treasury; tho counties pwe but little and the credit of our business men abroad and at home is first class,, probably no new country ever, had so few failures as has Arizona. In view of all these facts there is no cause for any one who desires to mako this Territory his homo to be discouraged, and the sooner the' doubting and discouraged individuals leave it, the better it will be for them and tho Territory. A convention has been called to meet in Denver, October 15, next; to devise means to utilize the waters in "the "Western States and Territories for irrigating purposes, and to devel op a water supply by means of arte sian wells. An invitation has been extended to Arizona to send delegates to said convention, but the time re quired and expense of making the journey is so great that wo do not be lieve Arizona will be represented, but we feel no less interest in the subject that will come before the convention, and we will, cheerfully co-oporato to carry to a successful conclusion any means that may be adopted. We have millions of acres of land in Ari zona as beautiful and productive as the sun over shone upon, if supplied with water, that is practically value less without. MARRIED.
