route between Bowie and Mesilla, al
though a daily line, mails only get
through accidentally since the Indian
outbreak of a tew weeks ago. The con
tractors say drivers cannot be employ
ed because of the danger. This is not
a subject of wonder; on the contrary it
has been a subject of wonder for years
that men could be hired to pass over a
route on which so many have been kill
ed. Of course, considerable intervals
of time have elapsed in which none
were killed, but the conditions out that
way for years, have been such as to
make most prudent men avoid employ
ment along the line. The consequence
has been, unreliable service and liitle
business over the line to what there
otherwise would and should haye been.
Hardly a day passes on which we are
not asked about the safety of that route
by men who want to pass over all or
part of it on business. The progress of
the country has been and is retarded
because of the general insecurity along
it. It seems rather bad that at this lute

their lives and property on that crcat

ExpfMiHCH of Liquidation.
Simultaneously with the publication
in the Ledger of the complaint that
"nobody seems able or willing to de
vise a cheap and expeditious process
of liquidation," the New York papers
published an account of how Judge
Robinson, of that cit3", applied a tem
porary remedy to the growing abuse
of excessiye legal charges in assign
ment cases. A referee has been ap
pointed to examine into the accounts
of the assignee of a bankrupt firm.
The report of the referee came before
the Court for confirmation, and it then
appeared that he had allowed 400
counsel fees to the attorney of a credi
tor whose claim for ?13b" had never
been disputed; that he had allowed the
special trustee 0,000 as compensation,
though the legal fees amounted to only
3,830; that he had awarded 40,000 to
the assignee, whose legal commissions
were only 11,392, and that he had
awarded to the assignee's counsel 10,
000 for legal services in addition to
1,000 previously paid them. Judge
Robinson refused to sanction these
awards, and characterized them as ex
orbitant. In doing so he took occasion
to remind the assignee and referee ot
the responsibility resting upon the
Court to administer estates with due
regard to the interests of absent credi
tors, and it may be presumed, rather
startled the lawyers by enunciating
the doctrine that the lees charged by
them should be proportioned to the
amount of work done, without regard
to the amount of the estate. Every one
will recognize this as a good, sensible
doctrine, but it seldom obtains in prac
tice, and the claims made for the ser
vices of assignees and lawyers too of.

Inquiries arc bing made as to what
it will cost to sink a shaft one hundred
feet on the Nequilla mine, west of Tuc
son, by San Francisco parties who have
made a conditional purchase of it, and
intend to thoroughly explore it.
R. B. Kelly Is pushing work on his
lead mine (which is turning to silver)
near town. He has made a sale of 20,-
000 pounds of the ere for use at the
King mine. There seems to be a vast
vein of galena and the latest develop
ments show ore that appears to be quite
valuable for silver alone.

Mr. John McCaflerty, of the Guijaor
Arivaca district, has returned from San
Francisco with encouragement to go
ahead on his mines.
Col. C. P. S3 kes returned from San
Francisco yesterdav morning. It will,'
be remembered that he was here last
spring and made a thorough examina
tion of the San Xuv.er mine, and took
with him to the city hulf a ton of the
ore showing every grade, and the tests
were highly satlstacto-. Owing to
the extremely dull season, he, like bun-
dreds of others, did not find ready as
sistance, but his indomitable persever.
ance was bound to succeed, and the
prospect now is very fair that ere long
he will have actual mining and reduc
tion of ore going forward.
