Plxley on Arizona.
The 'first of Mr. Pixlej's letters to
the Argonaut, from his late visit here,
appears in the issue of that journal of
March 27, As we would expect, from
the author, the letter is bright and in
teresting, but the usual number of mis
takes and mistatements from hasty ob
servation crop out in the letter.
Here is what Mr. Pixlev says of
Tombstone :

Money is not plenty, but the whole

Everybody has a mine, and every mine
is worth a million. 1 have seen the
busy, bustling town, drank its mescal.
but have not seen its mines. Last
October there was one tent here. The
town is located upon a plain or mesa;
no trees, no water, but level and sight

To-day I shall visit the mines, and it

ever realized, then Tombstone is the
treasure box of the world.
Who Wouldn't Ite a Justice of the
Peace?
Late last night, when one of our
magistrates was slumbering in the
arms of Morpheus, dreaming of jus
tice, injustice and attachments with
out proper bonds, a knock was heard,
and u"-n the usual, "Quien cs," an
swer was returned, "Yo suj-lico mi
merced de venir a mi casa á ca
sarme?" After the ceremony of sc-
ci" ;ng liie tee, the justice went iortu
to perform Lis duty. The damsel of
sweet sixteen, with hazel eyes, cov
ered with the usual tápalo, and the
man with the "ancient and honorable"
sombrero, stood up to await the bene
diction. The magistrate, not quite re
covered from the sweet embrace of
Morpheus, cited:
Beneath this roof and windy weather
I join this maiden aud man together;
And with the promise of reform
This my duty I do perform.

Calif'orL'... is, in his old age, a pen
sioner on the bounty of the people of
iuc ciaic v iiii.il ij min, uioic man uj
anything else, owes its greatness and
prosperity.
Cotnstock, the discoverer of the
wonderful mine which bears his name,
ended his life in poverty and priva
tion, in the wilds of Montana, and not
even a simple headboard marks the
last resting place of the man whose
discover' has added to much to the
wealth rmd luxury of the human race.
Colton, the discoverer cf the Bob
tail lode, in Colorado, which has yield
ed millions of dollars, is passing the
evenings of his days on a little ranche
on the Platte, where he is barely able
to make a living.
An Arizona Acequia.
Some Irish boys have a ranch on
the San Pedro, a few miles below Con
tention City, and recently they went to
work digging an acequia. A passer
by questioned the lady of the ranch
concerning the success they had met
with, to which she replied: "Och be
dad, 'twas nigh on to thra months the
hies were workin on the ditch plenty
of exercise and little to ate and sure
and win the ditch was complated the
acequi run one way and the wathcr
run the other."
Miner, ami Stocks.
Both before and since the permanent
organization and operation of the new
mining stock boards in New York
City, San Francisco newspapers haye
conceived a queer protectorate over
the interests and morals of the former
city. They break out into frequent
wise saws and forebodings and pro
phesies on the subject as affecting the
great metropolis and its people. One
would suppose that New York, being
at least as aged in centuries as San
Francisco is in decades, and having'
had experience in abouf all the yil
lianies and virtues that fall to the lot
of. mortals generally, its people knew
a thing or two and wreie capable of
taking care of themselves. But San
Francisco editors evidently do not
think so; at least on the subject of
mining 6tccks. And the comical spec
tacle is presented of the youthful Pine
street of the Pacific cautioning the
hoary headed "Wall street of the At
lantic to mind its eye and look out for
breakers ahead. But the San Fran
cisco idea is not unnatural. It fre
quently happens in individual life, that
the dissipated and blase youth sours
on life generally and indiscriminately
condemns the cakes and ale in which
older or more temperate men still find
some lasting good or comfort.
The trouble Is not with mines or
their securities but in speculative
swindles and abuses. The grapes are
not necessarily sour because they no
longer grow solely over San Francisco
stock boards. Because the latter city
spent its inheritance in riotous living
and debauchery it does uot necessarily
follow that all mult do likewise. Be
cause the meanest forms of rascality
were resorted to under mining stock
investment and manipulation in San
Francisco, it is not absolutely neces
sary for New York to follow suit. Nor
is it probable, that she will. As many
and as able and wealthy men have
been engaged in speculative invest
ments in New York as in San Fran
cisco, and were so engaged when San
Francisco was nothing but a collec
tion of barren sand hills. The spec
ulations in various forms of stocks in
New York have been at least as vast
and as cunningly manipulated a3 in
San Francisco. But somehow New
York never resorted to the low meth
ods which obtained o largely in, and
so widely cursed San Francisco, arid
it probably never will.
But aside from this and leaving all
this out, the fact is San Francisco is
jealous, and ioolishly so. There are
as great and as good (at least) mines
in the land to-day as ever lay in the
heart of the Comstock. Aud we have
our fair share of these in Arizona.
And they need monej' to open them.
And they are worth investing in. And
a distribution of stocks among man
holders for the use of their money is
as fair as any other barter in this
world of barter and trade. Aud there
will be at least as fair return. Let San
Francisco rest easy and be comforted.
She is not witln.ut use as an "awful
example" to all speculatively inclined.
And if we can by means of that ex
ample steer clear of the shoals that
have so damaged and demoralized the
fair metropolis of the Pacific, the great
tide of our fortune will yet float her
with us into deep water and the high
sea of lasting prosDerity.
Indian Troubles at Gila lieild.
Of late there has been considerable
rouble in and about Gila Bend through
the thieving depredations of a band of
Indians who are supposed by some to
be renegade Piinas, while others think
they are Papado. A we :k ago yes
terday General Wilcox sent a squad of
30 cavalrymen and about 20 scouts
down to Gila Bend to discover and ar
rest the perpetrators, and to-morrow
Father Antonio will leave here at the
request of General Wilcox, accompan
ied by an ludiau interpreter, to assist
in the matter. It appears that the
ranchers' and cattlemen in the vicinity
referred to have beeen losing quite a
number of cattle lately one man
having had 24 killed week before last
while others have sustained smaller
losses from time to time. It is the opin
ion of some that the Indians know
something of the murder of the Ger
man who was killed about the middle
of last month, some 15 miles from the
Bend, as the boots and clothing of
some Indians were identified as those
having belonged to him. Still it is
very probable he was killed by two
Mexicans, who immediately after the
killing, left for Sonora, aud the clothes
were obtained from these men by the
Indians. It is to be hoped the thieves
as. well as the murderers, may be ar
rested and punished, as cattle killing
by Indians generally leads to killing
not entirely confined to cattle.
A Charmed Life.
General Grant bears just the sort of
charmed life that is wanted in an Lm
peror. He came out all right from
the war; he snapped his fingers at the
earthquake; he floored the Cuban cow.

veston harbor ufu-r refusing to be iiip.

FROM SAFFORD.
An Interesting Letter Agricultural
Prospects Around Saflbrd How the
Mormons Impress an Old Resident.
Saffokd, Arizona, April 1
Editor Citizen: I see something
concerning all parts of the county but
this. The crops along the Montezuma
canal beginning at Solomonville and
extending" to ' Safford, a distance of al
most nine miles, are in fine condition.
That being a choice section of the
couniy, and is owned mostly by Mexi
cans, who have over four thousand
acres planted in small grain, such as
wheat, barley and alfalfa. In the midst
of these fields are some fine horses and
hogs, the latter unequaled in the coun
try. Americans in the same locality
have planted about five thousand acres
in barley and have every prospect for
a full crop. On the lower lands grain
shows the effect of heavy frosts, but a
few weeks of warm weather will again
bring it out as satisfactorily as one
could wish. One mile farther north
begins a large farming country, which
has been planted in small grain, three
fourths of which is bailey. Mr. Mark
ham has sown about one hundred acres
of the Chivalier barley, which he says
produces handsomely and is the only
feed grain that can be raised in this
valley at a profit. Owing tothe tariff
we pay for grinding our wheat every,
body sows barley.
We have only one mill in this com
munity, and the proprietor charges
seventy-five cents per hundred for
grinding, and discounts all wheat he
grinds five pounds on the hundred and
only gives the farmer sixty pounds of
flour to one hundred pounds of wheat.
It there is no other mill put up here
this year the larmers will be forced to
raise something else in the place of
wheat, although wheat wTould be the
best crop we could raise in this portion
of the county if the people could only
get it ground on reasonable terms, but
we must have a change or quit raising
wheat, and get our flour from some
other country.
West of this place is a settlement of
Mormons, J. K. Rodgers being the Bol
der and Teeples Counselor. They have
Just fiuished their ditch, and are now
p'anting their; grain. They have taken
up about eight hundred acres of land
which they will put in cultivation
this year. I had heard a great deal
about the Mormon back in the states,
but I never saw one until I came here,
and the first one I saw came to my
house. When he said he was a Mor
mon I looked for horns on him and
expected to hear distant thunder and
my self to be knocked into oblivion.
I stared and shook with fear and trem
bling. After looking at the creature a
short time I came to the conclusion
that a Mormon, from his shape and ap
pearance, must be a descendant of
Adam's race, so I summed up all the
courage I could, and after talking to
the man some time, came to the con
clusion that he talked and acted like a
gentleman. After I became acquaint
ed with him and all the balance of the
Mormons, I found them to be perfect
gentlemen, and as for the ladies I can
say I never met a more sociable and
ladylike set of women in all my travels.
They have a large school going on, and
say they are going to keep it going all
the year. They say to the people out
here, " we came tá try to build up
homes and expect to abide by the laws
of the country; we did not come here
for the purpose of breaking the laws,
but to help enforce them." They have
shown every disposition to that effect
sinre they have been here.
Mrs. Kirkland, wife of W. N. Kirk
land, brought forth a fine boy a few
days since, which goes to show that
some people are trying to keep the
commandment, " Go forth and multi
ply and replenish the earth." And I
can say for the people of Safford that
they are keeping this commandment.
Yours truly, Jas. Hays.

From the Phenix Herald.
The Nugget is improving most rap
idly in quantity and quality. The
Richmond is fulfilling all that was
predicted for it, and has a large per
cent in its favor in the balance.
The South Silver Nugget shows all
indications of making a mammoth
rich property. This location is liable
to develop into one of the finest prop
erties in the county.
At the Independence, a large body
of rich ore is exposed in the lower
works.
The Golden Eagle is slowly working
its way to the top of the heap, and all
who visit it, report it as a good prop
erty. The Irene still stands solid, and is
awaiting the building of the mill.

Professor Wheelr-r's Opinion of Fissure
Veins.
Because a mine is a fissure vein it
does not follow that its vein stuff is
rich or pay mineral, and this is equal
ly true of contact lodes. While fissure
yeins are usually found in the primi
tive rocks, the contact lodes generally
occur between the lower layers of
the palaeozoic rocks. The upper lay
ers are carboniferous rocks that con
tain the great coal beds of the ear;h.
After the formation of these rocks
an upheaval of land andthe subsidence
of the water takes place, erosin begins
its work; the sedimentan rocks are
worn off the highest ridges down to
the primitivj formations, and the fis
sures are exposed. From the backs ot
these fissures and from the contacts the
gold and silver are washed to the
gulches bebnv. The coar.-er particles
of gold lodtrc in the gravel and clay,
but the finer particles and the silver,
which dissolves, are carried back to
the ocean, and again take part in mine
making.
As the palaeozic rocks lie next to
the Eozoic. follow up the slope or
mountain sides to near the point of
total .denudation of Eozoic rocks, and
In the fragmentary rocks, contacts with
rich mineral, may be reasonably
searched tor.
The sedimentary or frasmentary
rocks sometimes are found dipping, or
taking the same slope with tlie moun
tain and sometimes jutt the reverse.
or dipping into the mountain, as Lead
villc. The causes of the latter condi
tion may Le one or both of two, name
ly : flextures in, or contraction during
the ptriod of mountain making.
Some mountains settle down some
what causing ihe Itratified formation
nearest the line of apex to sink, leav
ing it dipping into the mountains.
Metair.orphic limestone is a good cri
terion to judsre of the nearness of the
rich lode coutact fields, and so is por-
phpry. Loose pieces of mineral flow,
which are seldom rich, are good indi
cations that the lode is farther above.
Carbonate of iron flow, found working
its wav down into the mountain slope,
shows that the prospector is near
where the ore body will be found in
place. JMoat and flow from carbon
ate of lead and iron need not be ex-
Oected tobe found rich in silver, as the
elements cause the silver to dissolve.
The indications should be followed up
to find the ore in more 9olid iormation,
where the seebage has not taken place.
There are other indications, but it re
quires too much space to simplify
them, and also tamiiianty with the
mountains and uitterent conditions of
formation to comprehend them.
A New "VTay to Play the Fifteen Puzzle.
The great problem of the day is the
solution of the soul-provoking fifteen
blogk puzzle. A Mormon in Utah
tried it the other day by making
squares in his backyard and arranging
his numerous wives so as to represent
the desired numbers. They were all
much interested in the game, and
things went smooth enough until he
got down to 13, 14, 15. By this time
there was evidence of uneasiness in
the upper row, the wives from number
one to twelve were tired of standing,
and growing impatient at the non-suc
cess of their spouse, began to chip in
with such suggestions as " move red
headed 14 to the left," " push that shag
gle-toothed object with 15 pasted on
her cheek to the other square," " send
lop-eared lo with the dirty finger nails
farther down the row, and in about
ten minutes it was hard to tell wheth
er that back yard was a second-hand
clothing store or a defunct hair shop
and as soon as that Mormon gtts out
of the hospital he is going to look for
the man that invented the game.
Surveys for Patents.
Orders have recently been issued for
official surveys of the Silver Queen
mine and mill-site, Cedar Valley Dis
trict, Mohave county, on application
of A. B. Burdick; of the Hayes mine
in Ochocana District, Yavapai county,
on application of the Hayes Gold and
Silver Mining Company; of the Em
peror, Charles C. Copeland, applicant;
Dutchess, Charles A. Spring, Jr., ap
plicant, and Pocahontas, Cyrus H. Mc
Cormick and Charles C. Copeland, ap
plicants, the latter three claims situa
ted in Comobabi Mountains, Pima
county.
Peter Doll has recently applied for
a survey of the surveyable portion of
Township, 6 North, Range 4 west, un
der the special deposit system, and a
contract has been let to Deputy Sur
veyor H. R. Patrick of Phoenix, to
execute the work.
Gone to Join Ingersoll.
Henry Ward Beecher went down to
Frankfort, Kentucky, the other day
with a view of telling the people there
how to do and how not to do things.
Thoscbucolic Corn-crackers thought
they knew all they cared to know
about H. W. B's. theory and practice
of moral philosophy and social ethics,
and proceeded to barricade all of their
churches and public.halls against the
Plymouth pastor as Bob Ingersoll
in Canada a few days ago, and left
him shivering on the " ragged edce."
He went away without lecturing. Ver
ily, the advocates ot the " no hell "
theory are catching it.

Tombstone, April 2, 18S0,
Editok Citizen : Every thing about ,
our camp denotes activity ; there arej
very few men without employment,
new and substantial buildings are be
ing constructed, older ones remodeled
and improved, giving our streets a
solid and business like appearance,
and masons, carpenters and freighters
are all making full time. The mer
chants are as busy and smiling as ever,
and watching the advance of the rail
road, and as soon as it reaches the San
Pedro wil!-Vj ready to lay in a leavy
stock of goods, and with the railroad
at our doorstep(?) twenty-eight miles
away, we shall have as complete lines

son or San .Francisco. Mr. J. II
Strudinger has just completed a sur
vey and profile of the pipe line for the
Sycamore Spring Water Company, and
we understand the work is to begin at
once, and we shall soon be able to
hang up the " moss covered bucket,"
and dismissing our dear water cart
with grateful feelings for its past use
fulness, take off our hats to nickel-

Charleston was up in arms (gun
club and all) one evening last week
over a shooting scrape, arising out of
dispute over a dollar game of "freeze
out," but as soon as it was learned the
murderer had escaped peace was re
stored and the city quickly assumed
its normal quiet(?) aspect. The vic
tim lived about twenty-fours. The in
quest decided that he died from
the effects of a gunshot wound, the
gun fired by August Lehman ; victim's
name unknown.
The mines are showing up well.
The Tombstone Company has recently
increased its working force on the
Touch Nut. and consequently are
greatly increasing their daily out-put,
bringing up to daylight very rich ore
from the immense bodies below which
it will take j-ears ot labors to exhaust.
The mills of the Company on the San
Pedro, keep up their ceaseless grind
twenty-four hours per day, without
break or delay, turning out two bars
daily of bullion 'over 750 fine and
working the ore up to 86 per cent of
its assay value, which certainly must
be very satisfactory to its owners and
the fortunate stockholders.
The recent rich strike on the Good
Enough, the parallel claim to the
Tough Nut, and also the property of
the Tombstone Mill and Mining Com
pany, is of the greatest importance
not alone to the holders of their stock
but to the district generally. They
are sinking a shaft six by nine feet
having reached a depth of ten feet,
the shaft is all in solid ore, with ore
on all sides and very rich. The No. 5
drift running towards the Good Enough
shaft is within sixty feet of it, in rich
ore of the same character and without
doubt is the same body of ore as the
shaft is being sunk on.
The extensive hoisting works of the
Empire Company are rapidlj' being
ereeted and the smoke-stack is the
tallest "monument'' yet. Work on
their new shaft is being pushed as fast
as possible.
Tiie Contention mine is sending
large quantities of ore to their new
mill, and the shipments of bullion from
there tell their story.
lhe bunscters are all happy over
the rich development of their mine
as their perennial enthusiasm indi
cates. Without encroaching further
on your valuable space will append
my sig, Rustle.
Increase In Travel.
Our neighbors kindly notice our in
creasins: prosperity. The Los Angeles
Herald says:
The steam of travel keeps up ir
undiminished and even increased vol
time towards Arizona. Latterly there
is not a dav in which the sleeping car
accommodations on the Yuma branch
do not prove inadequate. This should
not be permitted to be the case here
after. Travel should be encouraged,
not repelled, and we have no doubt
but that the Southern Pacific Railway
will appreciate this view of the matter
and provide ample sleeping car la
cilities. Straiehf along the tide of pas
senger travel will expand if the means
of getting with comfort to the new
treasure field are provided.
Harshaw is something of a Cos
mopolitan town; her citizens are made
up from almost eyery nationality, be
sides she is taking on city airs. She
has her "Barbary Coast," but unlike
the const of the same name in San
Francisco, they are decent people who
inhabit it; she has her "C street, or
rather canyon, which is inhabited by
Mexicans; and last but not least her
"smokey row" where the duskey
descendents of Ham have builded
their habitations and propose to take
a hand in the future prosperity of the
town.
