Deming, in New Mexico, is tLe iunction or the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad with the Southern Pacific, and is the distributing point ior an stations on the southern Pa cific; also for Silver City, New Mex ico, Clifton and Arizona Territory.

About two hours before arriving at Deming the first through western bound passenger train over the South ern Pacific passed our train. The passengers from the west waved their handkerchiefs to those from the east, ana a happy intercourse of courtesies was had. On the morning of the 21st of April we lounu ttie air several degrees colder than the night before, as we were rapidly approaching the Kocky mountains. Pecos church, three miles to the left of the road, was built by the Aztecs four hundred years ago, and is now in ruins. The walls of this church are still standing and religious worship is still observed in the ruins by the Navajo and Pueblo Indians, who be lieve that Montezuma, a distinguished and beloved priest among them, went out one morning and was carried bodily up to heaven. It is said that these Indians have implicit faith in this tradition, and expect that Monte- zuea will return to earth again and rebuild this church, in whit1' they Jteer r'n" ": "..ir uany uuin.g for his return, me cuurcn wnus urc gradually crumbling, ana what the elements fail to do, relic-huntero are doing day by day, leveling the struc ture to the grouna.

It is aUo asserted that Montezuma II was lmprisoueu in this church by Cortes, and that -.a battle between the Mexicans anu Spaniards occurred around it which resulted in the defeat of the former, Montezuma ascending in a cloud and the Spaniards burning the church. It is further reported that the sky above its walls at times is filled with atrauge comets and other omens portending trouble to the country. Trlttes.

The poa'ttion taken by the Senate caucus to confirm only such appoint ments made by the President as arc not objectod to by both Senators from the State in which the appointments are made, is a bad precedent, and ouo that experience will prove the ncces sity of receding from. Such a course necessarily deprives the President of the constitutional right of appoint tnent, and delegates to him the pas sive functions of a simple entry clerk. But this is not even the worst feature of the case. The federal appoint ments in fifteen States must, under this conspiracy, be tiven to Demo crats, while those of six Northern States will possibly share a like dis tribution. It cannot be possible that this ac tion of the Senate caucus was to ap ply beyond the appointments ot the State of New York, and was taken to appease the ill-concealed wrath of King Conkling, who evidently labors under the misapprehension that he is the President, and his will must be respected in all things. The struggle between the Senate, under the guidance of Conkling, and President darfleld involves a vital principle of interest to every Ameri- can. It is better that it be met and nettled forever at thi time, and the test has become a fierce one between the political Goliahs. That a presi dential appointment will be rejected at the instance of a single Senator and on mere personal grounds caunot for a moment be believed, aud Sena tor Conkliug is not the person to per sist much longer in a course so plainly suicidal to his politic al supremacy. In speaking of the unfortunate at titude of the Senate, the iSew xork Tribune very justly states that "the responsibility of administering the Government has been intrusted to the Republican party. That party not only has a right, but is in duty bound, to use its power to promote liepubli- can principles, to build up in all the State a healthy, honest and honor able Republican organization, and to select as representatives of the Gov ernment in various official stations, men who will not only fill their offices well, but reflect credit upon the party and recommend it to the people by their teachings and conduct. The Republican voters of the country have a right to insist that their priuciplos shall be thus supported and recom mended to public lavor in every State. It would be an infamous be trayal nf Republican principles and ot the Iloi,uu ,,...,.. ""UIK' to the BourboL Democracy absolute power to deteat the nomination of any trustworthy Republican in nearly hall the States. The Senators who seek to hide a sinitter conspiracy unuer a fino phrase must be prepared, if they vote as they have been talking, to de fend before their constituents a most base and shameless betrayal of the Republican party. The cloak will conceal nothing. Every Republican voter will see just what it means te barter away to two Democratic Sena tors from any State the power to de feat any nomination in that State by a Republican President." Itoad AYnnted. "While the Board of Supervisors are considering measures for the public good, it would be well that they look into the expediency of straightening and improving the public road trom TucEon to the Silver Well district. The importance of the mines now be ing developed there is sufficient au thority for them to expend the small sum necessary to make the road a good one, and turn the entire trade of that locality into this city. The road to tho nine-mile water hole is now a nn.1 one. From there it should t3ww branch up the canyon, where but lit tic grading will be necessary for a lew miles, until it again strikes the present road. This cut off will save fully ten miles of travel, and the co3t of making it a first class thoroughfare will not exceed $1500. If a petition to the Board be necessary, it is hoped that some of our enteprlsing citizens will sufficiently interest themselves to circulate one and see that proper ac tion be taken upon it. There is noth ing that helps the trade of a city more than L-ood roads leading into it, and every citizen of the city should feel a nnrcnnol intorest in seCUrinC lUCIU Let the new road be built at ouce. The Democrats manifest more in- nrp?t in the Garficld-Coukling quar rel than the Republicans do. Thci interest comes in the shape of a hop that it will result in weakening the Republican party. But thev need not exult over the prospoct yet awhile. It is a long time yet before we will called upon to elect another President The Daily Optic, published at Las Yeas. New Mexico, is one oi me newsiest papers which reaches us from tti.it Territory. But if the Optic ,it c tn iiihUp nsuetrestion, we win - , ,. would advise it to get a ut" jn."" ii... nntier. The present one s is too small, r.nd does not strike us as being worthy of so good a paper. Surveyor General Wasso.n's let ter to the Secretary of the Interior gives general satisfaction to coal pros pectors.

WllHt It it? The following morceau Is from the Yuma Sentinel. A perusal has caused each individual hair of our head to straighten out like quills upon the freiful porcupine. u are greatly at lauit as to its purport, not knowing wliethcr be a Nihilistic proclamation, a socialislic fulmiuatiou, or a writ ot eviction. It Is given, however, as a curiosity of illiterateness; Joue fuil of latent enigmas and preguant with a rambling incoherence suggestive of mixed drinks. "What is the matter with Tucson! before the adyent of the S. P.

Now alter they have broken their necks to get the Railroad, they arc like crying children want the toy broke it, and want the other one. consistency than art a jewel!.' The bottom fact is that not a town, burg, ranch, slop shop, or station but what is worth more to-day (really) than it was before the Railroad came Into the Territory, from Yuma to Deming. The growlers are those who in days past loafed around saloons and beat the teamsters out of their pay at Seven Up, or some other enticing game; for them their day is past. Ge- lorious days for Dead Heats and Bilks. Who is tno other growler.' fall m Gamblers are at 1'ar in Arizona. Two to Congress and only one in Territorial Prison. "The majority of Pima Delegation at tbe last session of our Legislature were men who plays Keards, tor amusoment, straws show etc." A MOitNixo contemporary speaics of the probability of parties inter ested in the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fc Railroad building reduction works in Tucson. This question has been mooted for some time past, but wc have hitherto becu unable to trace it to any reliable source. There can be little doubt of the success of such works in Tucson. There Is 'no place in the country so centrally situated and eas3 of access from the various mining camps in Southern Arizona. We should also have a United States mint in Tucson. Our mines will for man years be able to furnish all the bullion necessary to supply a mint, and the coin could then be shipped east or west as the Government mav desire, thus saving double transporta tion, ns would be the case if it was ecnt t San Francisco for coinage. It now looks as though the frauds of the star routes extends through all of the frontier States and Territories. Jlr.ny ol the men who have had a hand in the oStar route steals are old of the oldest stagers in the country. Wc are glad to see Postmaster Gen eral Jamos take hold so vigorously, and wc trust that Wayne MacVeogh will not be louud wauling when tbe rnlnrils are brought to trial. The great strength of a party is iu being able to purify itselt, which, when done, makes it stronger with the peo ple than ever. Supplies are going out to the vari ous mimutr camps uy uuurauua wagon loads. The work of develop- mont in the mines is goiuu sieuuny .i : l forward, and the golden harvest time will soon come around.

Beersteeher and .stoneman present. Upon calling the meeting to oraer Commissioner stoneman arose to a question of pnvelege, and, referring to the reported interview wuu com missioner Beersteeher. as puhli-hed after the last meeting, denied the statements therein set forth as far as they rvlated to him. Commissioner Stonemm'a address was ion.:, and dealt everiy with the article d m plained of. It wa moved to record tnc address n the question of privilege upon the minnies bui the mction was lost, Beersteeher and Cone voting against the motion. Commissioner Beersteeher then pre sented a voluminous report, signed by him- If and Cone, and Hddressed to Governor Perkins. The following is the summary: The reduction made by the board in the rate of freights affects grain, wool, wood, hay, cattle, hogj, sheep and other low-priced but abundant products depending upon cheap trans portation for successful production. For the present the Commissioners will adopt the present rates on gener al merchandise a the maximum rate, and have not thought it advisable at present to make any changes in the passenger tariff. Though there was a demand on the part of the public for sweeping reductions, the irjard after an investiga;ion came to the conclu sion that arbitrary anu blind action could not be taken without putting at risk the interests of the public equally with those of the railroads. In tins opinion the board iound itseit supported by similar boards of other States, and was fortified lu the con clusion by every step in its own re searches. The report then enters upon a long statement of the reasons for ar riving at the above conclusion, re ferring to the lack of competition on the Pacific coa-t. The report con cludes that it is beneficial, so fur as it prevents tiuetuations in rates, which in Eastern States reduces mercantile operations to a gamble. The report was adopted, and the board adjourned till to-morrow. EASTERN. A Nmw I'i-: . rlure In the Contract Otllce. Wasim.nuton, May 9. On the 7th iri t-ini awards for carrying mills in .iL-us parts of the country under the miscellaneous advertisement of March 10th were finally decided upon at the Postofficc Department. The letting ot these contracts is not what is knoAii as the regular letting, but consists of service on such routes as from various causes cannot bo adver tised and Ict .t the usual lime aud manner. In opening proposals for contracts a matciial departure has been ma-li irom the usual custom in such ..ft-.M.-s. The law reads that all proposals for carrying mails shall, be fore boing turned over to the Contract Office, be opened and marked. Here tofore, with one exception, occurring several years ago, the custom has been merely to open the bids and stamp them, a work which some offi cial in the Department says is prac tically of no value and evidently not what "the law contemplates, as no rec ord was made, and others could be added after the opening of the bids and blanks rilled in so as to secure contracts, or be withdrawn so as to give some lavored bidder tho contract. Purple.1 'Borne" j'ars ago quite a scandal was created iu the Depart ment by some of these very doings, und sever 1 1 employes of the Contract Office were dismissed in consequence, out mill, with tue exception before al.uded t ', n change iu the niauuer of opening was mude, aru Poatiuus-ter-Geoerul James authorized tiie change to be made, as t jIIoa-,; Alter ihe bid were opened thoy Were stampxd with ihe date of opening anil wiih an lUgruved device ot whieh there is DUl one lu existence. The were theu numbered consecutively, Tranced by routes and a hat made of ihem, giving the number of the bid, name of bidder, number of loute on wliich service is to be m.ide, the amount of bid, and the deteel iu form .tiny or irregularities discovered. Alter thio the bid weru turned over iu the Contract Office uud a list lur uished the Postmaster Gtneral with (he device meuiloned belnre. These oids were turned over to the conlruct office. They were always either un der the eyes f u committee appointed to examine and mark them, or in tbe vault, the keys ot which were in the exclusive pos-cssion ot the committee. It will be seen that under this plan there is no opportunity whatever for tampering with bids by any one dis posed to do so in the Department without certain discovery, and that no gbids can be abstracted nor new ones admitted. It is so good a plan that the Postmaster-General will probably causo it to adopted for all future opening of bids for the star routes and other contracts. Outruco In Colorado. Denver, May 10. A telegram re ceived by the Governor states that on the 5th, in Laplatte county, a ranch was attacked and 140 head of cattle run off. Three ranchmen were killed. Some think Indians, and others say white desperadoes. Denver, May 10. The News fur nishes the following additional infor mation regarding the depredations: The Governor's telegram was dated Durango, and said the Indians had committed the murder and that the ranch was tho property of John Thur man. Upon receipt of the telegram the Governor telegraphed a purport to General Pope and also sent a cour ier from the end of the telegraph line to ascertain the truth and what band and how many engaged in the mur der and if chief Ignacio was at the southern agency with the main body of the tribe. No reply can possibly be received until to-morrow after noon. It is thought the murder may have been committed by renegade In dians who are located in the south west corner of Colorado and who rec ognize no chief If these Indians be long to Ignacio's tribe then the situa tion is considered as being very seri ious, and a universal outbreak may be expected any moment. When tho news reached them of the indictment of the Indians for the rnurderof Jack son, the indications seemed to be that they would immediately take the war path. General Pope answered the Governor, saying the report seemed incredible, "b Durango was only 14 miles from Fort Lewis where four companies of infantry and ono of cav alry were stationed, and If outbreaks had occurred as lar back as May 5th he would have been notified by the commander of Fort Lewis and stated that the reports received to-day by him from the Uncompahgre and White River aeencies indicate everything peaceable. Nine companies of regu lar troops left Kansas City lor Un compahgre to-day. Refuse to Confirm Stun? Mathewa. Washington, May 9.
