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.
