M. O'Reilly who has dug more wells

day. Mr. O'Reilly has started a brand
new station at the Three Oaks some five
miles south of Point of Mountain and
three miles north of Crotou Springs
Thenco he has made new and good roads
east to junction with the old road to
Bowie at a point some six miles this side
of Ewell Springs, and a new road west to
junction with the mail road to San Pedro.
From San Pedro to O'Reilly's new station,
which is called Central Springs station, is
twenty-four miles. He has three springs
of fine wator, good accommodations
for man and beast and says that travol
and freight have already commenced to
go by his place. Mr. O'Reilly has late

From one of tho former, Mr. Briggs this

The municipal election which enmo off

good that no ono opposed it and the fol
lowing officers were elected: Mayor, J. B.
Allen; Councilmen, P. Drachman and J.

M. Maloney, at his ranch on the Sonol-
ta, lately killed n genuine panther. It had
been picking out tho best of his sheep, and
Mr. Maloney, lying in wait, discovered,
shot and wounded it. Tho beast retreated
into the brush; Mr. Maloney followed and
came upon It suddenly when the panther
turned upon his pursuer. Tho latter struck
the panther over the head with tho stock
of his gun and quickly dispatched the
wild beast and set himself up In life as n
mlzhtv hunter. The panther yielded n
large amount of fat.

General Phlneas Banning, a pioneer of
Los Angeles county, and well and favora
bly known to tho earlier settlers in Tuc
son, arrived by stage last Saturday. He
comes as agent of the Southern Pacific
railway in California to look after the in
terests of the company, and, as wc believe,
also for the interests of the people of Ari
zona. Following so close y upon the
visit of Mr. Rice, weean but conclude
the Company contemplato an early rail
connection to and through Arizona, and by
the way take Tucson in. Gen. Banning is
not authorized to settle the questions be
longing to the engineering department,
but he expresses a belief that the compa
ny's 32d-parallcl road will come through
Tucson, and therefore asked the Village
Council to grant title to certain land for
depot and other purposes. Mayor Allen
convened tho Council at his residence on
Wednesday evening, and invited the citi
zens generally to be present, to consider the
subject, and many prominent citizens at
tended. After calling the Council to order
and stating the object of tho meeting-, he
introduced Gen. Banning in his represent
ative capacity. Tho General briefly stat
ed the object of his mission and offered
to answer any questions put to him to the
best of his knowledge. After some dis
cussion, all being very strongly in favor of
encouraging the Company, a vote was
colled for and every one present voted to
approve the donation asked of the Coun
cil on behalf of the Southern Pacific road,
which amounts tothis.viz: Deed about200
acres within tho town limits to the Com
pany on condition that the road is buuilt
and in good running order to or through
Tucion within five years from the dato of
the conveyance, with a further proviso
that within two years the Company must
give a guarantee that tho road will come
through Tucson within five years, or re
lease the land to the town. The meeting
was very harmonious and its action en
tirely satisfactory to Gen. Banning, and
the conveyance will be promptly made as
stated. Our limited space prevents the
full mention we would like to make of
l'rocectliiijrs of tho Snprcnio Conrt.

There are abundant evidences along the

Mrt. E. F. Coltok, who camo in
from Camp Bowie on Thursday, gives
us the following Indian items: About
the middle of last month, Lt. Rucker,
Sixth Cavalry, was ordered by General
Kautz on a scout in pursuit ol some
renegade Chiricahuas who had been
committing depredations alone our
southern border and had lately driven
off a number of horses belonging to
Mr. '1 nomas liugnes, near Crittenden.
Lt. ltucker at the time was already
out on a scout but on receipt of the
order repaired to Bowie and after fit
ting out his party left there with ten
men of the Sixth Cavalry and some 40
Indian scouts. Reaching the vicinity
of Crittenden he got the direction and
soon found the cold trail of the In
dians and stolen stock. With charac
teristic perscverencc he followed this
trail just where it led, over mountain,
valley anu canyon, lie crossed the
Iluachucas, caine into the White river

tages of water or easy roads, and kept
on as long as his supplies and allotted
time to be out would allow. The trail
led for a long distance northeasterly,
then turned south or southeast, appar
ently to some old haunts of the South
ern Chiricahuas. lie found that the
Indians gained in numbers and stock
as they proceeded and at points had
killed and eaten some of their animals.
He followed tho trail over a hundred
miles but he was so far behind that the
most he could do, within his limit of
supplies and time was to ascertain the
probable locality of the Indians and
return to Bowie for more men and
fresh supplies. At the time time Mr.
Colton left Bowie Lt. Rucker had near
ly and thoroughly refitted his new
scout and would immediately start
south and follow tho trail wherever it
led. And everv one who knows him
says he will do it.
