THE MOP.MOS' QUESTIOX.
The present is an njre ot sensation.
The people demand it and the want must
be supplied, -whether or not the facts
justify its promulgation through tho
press. Jnst how much of the sensational
tales are to be credited as frospol truth
depends upon the susceptibility of the
tiorson who reads them.
ThoMormon question ia the nil absorb¬
ing topic of tho present. All the terrible
features of the mysteries underlying the
polygamy and blood atonement features
of that so called religious creed that
hive been madt public through the
newspapers, are given full credence in
some quarters and spurned as libelous
falsehoods in others. The facts will ap-
iiear when the question is dispassionately
reviewed and bereft of its sensational
feature. Thero can be no question that
under the cloal: of religion as embodied
in the Mormon creed, thero lie many
gross evils whose horrors will appal tho
civilized world when fully known. The
following letter, given in the Salt Lake
Tribune a few days ago. it true, gives
some light upoa this grave subject In
the absence of corroborating evidence it
ranst be taken as the reader chooses to
view it. Terhaps the letter is genuine
and iierhaps it is not In tho former
ease it would indicate a most deplorable
state of anarchy in Utah:
fSeore-o O. Cannon asserts in a recent
interview that the Mormon people are
unanimous' in their opposition to the xaI-
munda bilL I know that this is not true.
. I have been a Mormon for twenty-one
Years, and I still believe in all the prin
ciDles that were taught me when I em¬
braced Mormonism in England. I do
not believe in polygamy and blood atone¬
ment, but I never heard of those princi¬
ples until I camo to Utah, in 18G3.
Xeither do I believe in tho obligations
we are fiirced to take on oursjfes in the
Endowment Uoutt. I know many per¬
sons who are Mormons in the same sense
that I am but who behove u all the
principles that were first taught them,
but who do not believe in polygamy,
blood atonement or any other wicked¬
ness that is practiced in the name of re¬
ligion. Women of this class are on their
knees to-day praying that the Edmunds
bill Jiay become a law. I know women
who signed tho Mormon memorial to
Congress because they feared to lose
their own and their children's bread if
they refus-L Yet these very women are
hoping and praying that Congress
will put down polygamy. One woman
who signed tho memorial because she
dared not do otherwise, said to mo; ' If
Congress gives Cannon his seat and
don't put down- poly gamy with a strong
hand, I will say tho members of Congress
are as bad as the Mormons." Another
woman, a friend of mine, says: 'I do
not know the man who brought tho peti¬
tion to my house, but supposed him to
be a Gentile. I asked him if tho peti¬
tion was against polygamy, ana no saiu
it was. I have suffered terribly in po¬
lygamy, and signed my name quickly
enough, but after I had done so, some¬
thing in the man'H manner made mc sus¬
picious and I asked him if it was not
the Mormon petition against Edmunds'
bill? He had my name, so then he. told
me the truth. I asked him to cross my
name off, but he wjnld not do it'
Another woman said: 'When they
brought the petition to my house they
told mo the Edmunds bill 'would take
awavour homes and strip us of every
thing, and I signed it because I believed
what they told me. I have not yet seen
tlie memorial myfcelf. Those who brought
it around knew better than to ask me to
sign it They think I have a rebellious
spirit And my husband said to me on-
lv :i few days ago: 'When tho law of
.God is in full force, and we get rid of
"theied d Gentiles, andent throats, then
all such women as you -iHbo killed.'

Tak Flat still maintains its reputa¬
tion for lawlessness. The man recently
killed, supposed to have been shot by a
Chinaman, was first found on the morn¬
ing after his death by a man named
Reardou, who instead of reporting his
death robbed tho man of his money and
revolver. Upon Iho discovery of tho
facts by the citizens he was in conjunc¬
tion with the Chinaman arrested by the
citizens who were determined to punish
both offenders according to their separate
racrit. The Chinaman it waa proposed
to hang and the white man to be severe¬
ly whipped and then forced to leavo
the camp, and it is the opinion of Mr.
Courtney who lett there Wednesday, that
both men would be punished as stated
that night or, as Mr. Courtney thinks
both were mo?t probably hanged, as the
citizens were determined to put an end
to the high-handed lawlessness which
has for so long a time ran rife in the
camp. Tho roughs and sings who hava
gathered there in such numbers do no
work but prey so incessantly upon tho
honest labor that the latter class are
difficult to obtain or nt best work but a
few days and then leave, to th'i serious
annoyanco of the contractors who are
thus always short-handed. Meens. Ward
and Courtney have in their employ but
nlxiut one hundred men when at least
three times that amount are needed.
Application for police officers has been
twice made to the proper authorities, but
as yet no attention has been given to tho
subject The delay in the construction
of the road is not duo to fault of the
contractors who uSe every effort to for¬
ward the work along, butjto the condi¬
tion of circumstances, by which good
men are prevented from continuing at
their labors.
The rapid btride the city of Tucson
has taken in the past two years of pro¬
gress has quite surpassed tho educa¬
tional facilities that were deemed fully
adequate to the demands previous to
the advent of the railroad. It is now
found that the public school builling is
not only too small to accomodate the
constantly augmenting numbers of
pupils, but it lacks sanitary and other
essentials to an institution of its size
and character. The school fund is now
nearly large enough to erect a suitable
structure upon a site already in posses¬
sion of tho trustees, and the initiatory
steps towards its construction should be
taken nt once. Xot only do handsome
school building add much to the appear¬
ance of a town, but as evidences of pro¬
per educational facilities they induce
people to bring their families here to
reside. Tho necessity of a new school
building is obvious to every thinking
man, and it is hoped that our school
board will keep abreast the times and
make our city as famous for educational
facilities as it is becoming in many
other respects.
It has been claimed bj - artisan rs-
papcrs that the Chinese bU Sh re¬
cently passed the Senates a Demo-
J&F'jim seflg' "xhat statement, how¬
ever, cannot bo substantiated by the
records. Various questions entered into
the action of the Senators relative to
that bill, chief among which was tho
period of the exclusion of the Chinese
immigrants. Upon this question the
San 1'rancisco Chronicle says that
amongthe Republicans who voted no
are Edmunds and Ingalls, who both
spoke for it and would both have voted
o had the time of exclusion beeu fixed
at ton, instead of twenty years. There
arenauy Republicans among tho noes
who would probably have voted "yes"
had this amendment been adopted.
Thirty-three Senators refused to vote.
Of tbeso fifteen are Democrats and
eighteen Republicans: nearly as many
of the oae as the other. The most tell¬
ing npcecb.ee in favor of the bill were
made by Miller aud Edmunds, both
Republicans. The roost effective
speeches against it were made by Hoar,
VJ) nnd Brown (D) In fine, to quote
from Beck (D) "Both parties supported
it because it was right," while the best
men of both parties "opposed a similar
bill two years ago because it proposal
to set aside a treaty." So far as tho pol¬
itical press fs concerned the Democrats
ran claim no advantage; nothing like an
exclusive support of the bilL Among
the least respectful opiionents are the
New York World, Philadelphia Times,
New York Sun, Cincinnati En¬
quirer, nil Democratic, and the New
York Herald, with strong Democratic
lpanug."
An exchange speaks the sentiment of
.1 greet majority of the American people
m saying that Blaine ha never been
nominated for the Presidency, but yet
he has always led the victorious column.
It is became ho has been, and is now the
trnest exponent of Republican ideas, as
they are jfeld by tho vast multitudes of
American voters. He has that fine tact,
that intuitive sense of what Americans
feel and think, that makes tho true lead¬
er. He says at tho right moiflent tho
very thing that 50,000,000 people are
dumbly thinking, and says it in a way
that goe.i straight to the heart like the
proclamation of Napoleon on tho eve of
battle. Both he and Conkling aro now
i:i retirement one because of the na¬
tional calamity of Garfield's assassina¬
tion; the other beeanse of his own stu¬
pendous folly as a leader, resigning for "a
vindication." But one Is the leader of
victory, and tho other the lender of
defeat.
Mil II. M. NEwnALL, the nell known
auctioneer of the Pacific Coast, who died
a iew days ago, was one of tho great
land ownersDf Los Angeles couuty.Jand
the town of Newhnll was named in his
honor. Mr. D. W. Fields, of this city.
was a partner of Mr. Xewhall at San Fer
nando, and bpeaks'of him as a gentleman
or sterling character. Mr. Newhall was
very Kiiccesaful in the acquisition of
property, and owned a princely estate at
the time of his death.
A Washington dispatch says lhat
Representative Cobb ( Dcm.) of Indiana,
whose various measures relative to pub¬
lic laud grants to various railroads,
which require that whero the terms of
the original grant have not been compli¬
ed with, the lands shall revert to the
Government, proposes to continue his
war against them. For this purpose ho
will formulate another resolution tnoro
thorough and searching in its nature,
which ha, will offer in a few days.
Maclean, who shot at Queen Victoria
is accused of high treason. Ho is not
charged with murder, the penalty for
which crimo is tho same as that for high
treason death. In tho United States
the law recognizes no such treason as
this; we know of no treason except
against the commonwealth. Our law is
no respector of persons. It estimates
any person's life as dear as any other
person's life. Public servants (no.ri
era), in our Republic are nqledged
abont by special proteoti'nactments.
The character of the ipe mnst te re¬
lied upon for thojrJonai safety and
comfort ot ojfabIie functionaries, who
haveJtetlo been as safe at home, or
on the streets alone, as if surrounded
by bodyguards. The killing of the most
exalted official in our Nation was no
more with Judge and jury than would
have been tho killing ot the humblest
citizen in the country.
The Los Angeles Herald, one of the
mostjcarefully conducted of our Califor¬
nia exchanges, very truthfully remarks
that "thero is always the possibility, in
the best regulated newspaper and no
one who has never run a daily paper
knows what ceaseless vigilance is re¬
quired to prevent iU happening often
of a paragraph creeping into its columns
which would not be endorsed by its
management, but which would, on the
contrary, be peremptorily relegated to the
waste basket, if seen. In well managed
newspapers these contretemps are rare
though unavoidable. They are an inci¬
dent of the trouble which is said to oc¬
cur iu 'the liest regulated families."
The Washington Critic which hai been
generally credited with beiu a stalwart
journal, in speaking of thu Garfield-
Riwecrans letter, sayn: "The great body
of the American people have made up
their minds abont Garfiold.They watched
in feeling by his bedside all last summer
au 1 they eamc to regard him almost as a
member of tho family. When ho died
they moun-ed, and when hf was laid
away to test forever, they took his fame
into their keeping. These, let us remark,
arc tho people who cast the votes. No
matter what may actually have been
made of it, whosoever, or for whatsoever
purpose, attempts to drag his fame
through the mud, will encounter n re-
sentmeat little short of ferocity."
TriE Epitaph says: "Prairie and wood
fires liave been raging in Southern Ari¬
zona and Southwestern New Mexico
for the last week. The territory burned
over is reorted to cover forty miles
square and thu damage done was im¬
mense. The origin of the lire is attrib¬
uted to Indians, either domestic or rene¬
gade, who are allowed to roam at will
throughout tho country, except on ra¬
tion day."
A bill was reported favorably to the
House on the 10th instant, "That tho
Secretary of the Interior Ik and he is
hereby, authorized and directed to place
on the pcnsiou-roll ths name of Laura
Hentig, widow of Edmund C Hcntig,
late a captain in the Sixth Cavalry,
United States .Vmy, and to pay a pen-
siou at the rate of 50 per month in Jieu
of that now allowed her."
Movr.n by the tremendous stories told
of the mineral wealth of New Mexico, a
correspondent of the Chicago Times
suggests Karon Munchausen for Gov¬
ernor and Eli I'etkins for Secietaryof
that Territory.
TOTAL WRECK CAMP.
Retobts from Total Wreck camp con¬
tinue very favorable. Messrs. Burns 4
Salsig have refused an offer of S40.000
cash for the Forty-nine mine. They are
down thirty-eight feet, in a wide ledge
of soft fino ore. They feel confident
that their mine is worth several times
the sum offered.
The Ewing comrjany have erected a
blacksmith t hop and other buildings on
the Side Wheel group,andare sinking for
water.
The Border Iiullian is showing splcnd-
ly and is bebg worked steadily.
Day and night shifts are being worked
on the Champion and Cross Line. The
vein in the latter in looking very well.
The Total Wreck company are work¬
ing the Denver, tho eastern extension of
the Total Wreck- It is a promising
mine.
Ienconragmeiit to the prosecution and
with freezing out those engaged in it.
Minister Morton makes a h weeping de-
i nial of the charges against him and tho
connec-
Mr. J. D. Power, of Tombstone has
made a personal inspection of tho Total
Wreck mine and gives his views in the
New York Mining Record. He states
that "the total quantity of ore in sight,
as approximated from the ore dimensions
given and deduced from partial meas¬
urements, 53,474 tons of solid reserves
standing in place ready to be released for
reduction, nnd at a mere nominal cost
compared with the expense attached to
tho extraction of ores from other mines
that I have examined in thii Territory.
From the quantity of reserves would
result a bullion product of absve 31,200,-
000, based upon $80 per ton aa the work
ing value of tho ore, nnd which is $19 per
ton less than the main average ascay
valuo given elsewhere above. Of this
ore, a twenty stamp mill will easily put
throngh its battery sixty tons per diem
or 1,800 tons per month, VI.GUU tons per
annum; allowing two days each month
for cleaning up and overhauling belts
and machinery, wo reduce this quantify
by an aggregate 1,410 tons for the year
which leaves '20,100 tons.
From the foregoing showings, it is
easy to see that the 20-stamp mill about
to be ordered, and for which grading is
being executed, at a convenient and eli¬
gible point on the slope ot the hill, north
of tho hoisting works, will find in the
above reserves, including the 4,000 al¬
ready mined on the dumps at the mine,
more than enough oro to tax its reduc¬
tion capacity for at least two years, and
for the residue rcmuining over at the
end of that time tho writer would be
willing to pay a liberal amount and then
make a handsome profit on the invest¬
ment so entirely confident is he now of
the correctness of his estimates."
THE OOOO TIME.
The present promises to be a year of
unprecedented prosperity in Arizona.
The rainfall has been abundant and it
has come with such gentleness that the
ground has absorbed the greater part of
the moisture. An uuusal quantity of
snow fell iu the mountains, and the
fonntain heads of all the streatas are
replenished. The prospector will not
suffer from thirst in his search for veins
ot tho precious metals during the ap¬
proaching summer, and he cansfiaTn-
to places hitherto inaggib'e from a
lack of water.jirijk'reiult will doubt¬
less add xiy another paying mine to
theJpvrst that Arizona now boasts of.
The stock men too, will have cause to
rejoice, for their herds will find abund-
ent pasture upon every side. Both val¬
ley and mesa will yield prolific verdure,
and the deseit will literally blossom.
The farmer will rejoice in the abund¬
ance of his crops and smile in antici¬
pation of a plethora of ducats.
The welcome rain will make all c'a'L
and through its agency will mountains
and valleys and plains teem with busy
life, and much good will result

EASTERN NEWS.
There are plenty of measures inviting
the careful attention of our infant Board
of Trade, some of which should receive
consideration at tho first meeting of that
body. The right of way for the railroad
from CalabntaB and the location of its
depot aro matters ot great local impor¬
tance, and demand the earliest attention
o' that body. Auothrr matter bearing
directly upon tho future prosperity of
T.icson, is tbe establishment of a smelter
and quartz mill for the reduction of ores,
with a view to the ultimate erection of
refining works. The central location of
our city, in the midst of a rich mining
region, with facilities for transportation,
proximity to the coal beds when the pro¬
jected railroad is completed to them,
plenty ot water and n vast array of minor
resources and other ad vantages, all mark
Tucson as the proper place for such
works. It would;prove a profitable spec¬
ulation to donate $20,000 to secure their
erection on the banks of the Santa- Cruz.
Tho Board of Trade will have plenty of
work before it from its first meeting on¬
ward.
Simultaneous with the gigantic
scheme of draining and reclaiming a
vast area ot Florida swamplands, an en¬
terprise in which Hon. A. 1. K. Safford
is interested, the progressive spirits of
that State have held an immigration
convention at Jacksonville, on Febru¬
ary 25th, and incorporated the "Florida
Immigration Association," with a Presi¬
dent, two Vice-Presidents, Secretary,
Treasurer, General Manager, Land Com¬
missioner and a Board ot Directors.
Among the general committee se ected
to meet annually aud elect the Board of
Directors, we notice the name of Gov.
A. I'. K. Safford. This committee is
selected from the most prominent citi¬
zens of the State at large and of the
several counties. An organization of
such magnitude and power cannot fail
to create a permanent prosperity in
Florida and infuse a new life and energy
into the sleepy old peninsula.

Silt Lake, March 15. The receipt of
the news ot tho passage of Edmunds' bill
has created great excitement iu this city.
People who have waited twenty years
for help from tho government can hard¬
ly realize that action haB been taken at
last, and to-day men hugged each other
on the streets for joy; though the Mor¬
mons are equally elated and favor the
bill. They have been kept in the back¬
ground for fears by old graybeards and
chafe under tho restiaint They now
talk openly iu favor of the new deal and
snap thrirfingers in the faces ot the old
heads of the church. None of these young
people have ever favored polygamy. To¬
night there is to bo a meeting of the
High Council and it is rumored that
there will be a split in the Church. On
receipt of the news the Tribune isued an
extra and hoisted tho American flag over
the building. Three corneryof the build¬
ing were barricaded and is filled with
armed men, while the priests are preach¬
ing in the temple advocating its demoli¬
tion. The people of Utah feel to-day as
did tho negroes in the South when the
emancipation proclamation was issued.

ments familiar to the people of the Pa¬
cific Coast. He appealed in strong
terms to Republicans 10 come to the
rescue of the bill. It had been said that
polygamy was a twin sister of slavery;
he assented that it was twin barbarism of
Chinese immigration. The merits of the
pending bill were then discussed by
Robinson, Tyler of Vermont, and Rice of

j Ban Dicso Onion,
The now steamer "Mexico" camo into
port Sunday afternoon and anchored oil
the Pacific Coast Steamship Company's
wharf, since which time a he has beeu
visited and admired by a number ol
ladies and gentlemen of this city. The
vessel, it appears was partially disabled
by the breakage of. some of her ma¬
chinery, nnd put into this port for re¬
pairs. Tho injury is not serious, and
the repairs, which are being made at the
railroad shop at National City, will be
completed this morning, and she will
proceed on her way to Gnaymas, her
point ot destination. Tho Mexico had
an additional attraction to our people,
because the name of one of our most
respected citizens, Captain A. II. Wilcox,
is associated with her as one of her
builders, while his partner, Mr. B. M.
Hnrtshorne, is pleasantly remembered
by many of our citizens. Tho vessel,
under command ot Captain Huntington,
is a propeller, 2S9 feet long, and has a
registered tonnage 1700 tons. Throngh
the courtesy of Captain Huntington, in
company with a number of gentlemen,
tho reporter of this paper made a hasty
inspection of tho ship, and found her very
complete in all of her arrangements.
Next to tho Stato of California, tho
Mexico is said to be the fastest vessel on
the coast She will make the round
trip between San Francisco and Guay-
mas in twenty days, and could shorten
the run to eighteen days. Mr. Johit
Birmingham, Superintendent of the
steamship line at San Francisco, and his
wife, are accompanying tho Mexico on
her trial trip. There aro alio quite a
number of passengers aboard, all whom
seem to be quito at home, and not a bit
restive tinder the delay. As soon as tho
Sonora Railroad is completed to a con¬
nection with Atchison, Topeka and
Santa Fo at Calabasas, Southern Ari¬
zona, which will be sometime tin year,
this route ?iart steamer nnd part rail
will no doubt become quite popular with
the traveling public, nnd be largely
used for freighting for Northern Mexico
and Southern Arizona.

Tho annual product of silver at the
commencement of tho Christian Era is
estimated to havo been $1,200,000; at the
period of thediscovery of America it had
diminished to $150,000; after that event
it graduallv increased, and in 1C00 it at¬
tained to $9000,000; in 1700 to S1S.000,-
000; in 1S00 to $38,000,000; in 1850 to
$47,000,000; in 18C3 $03,000,000; and at
tho present time it is $91,000,000.
From the earliest times to the com¬
mencement ot the Christinn Era, the
amount of silver obtained from the mines
of tho earth is estimated to be $2,900,0(0,-
000; from tho date of the latter event to
the discovery of America, $500,000,000
thence to tho close of 1K12. an addition
of $5,800,000,000 was made; thence to the
close of 1881, there was added $201,000.-
000; making a grand total ot Sll,501,0CO,-
000. The average loss by abrasion of
com is estimated by Prof, Bowen at one
per cent per annum; and tho loss by con¬
sumption in the arts, and fire, and ship¬
wreck at $5,000,000 per annnm. A cubic
inch of silver is worth, at 52d. or $1.05,
per ounce Sll; a cubic foot, SlSjOOS; and
a cubic yard, $513,517. Economist

required by lww&nliteodent Sher
trsriomitted his annual report for the
year lbal, Ihe report gives a very ex¬
haustive statement of the condition of
education in all tho countiesof Arizona.
We observe that Pima county tasea tho
lead in the amount of money raised for
school purposes dnrin 4 the year, it being
815,773 31, but Yavapai county supported
the greater number of teachers, the num¬
ber being twenty-two. Owing to tho
fact the law creating the counties of Co-
chiio and Gila made no provision for a
division of the school money, these
counties havo suffered much inconven¬
ience from a lack of funds to pay teach¬
ers. The Superintendent in his re¬
port makes somo very sensible remarks
in regard to the matter of Land Grants
for school purposes, which our neigh-
bom both to tho cast and west enjoy,
but which is denied us. He rightly sug¬
gest that it would be well for our dele¬
gate in Congress to make an effort to
have these public school lands made
available for the present support of our
schools. Until it is dono our school must
be supported in the future as in tho past
by taxation. We hopo at some future
time to publish this part of the report
in full. The total valuation of school
property in thoTerritory such as school
buildings, etc., is $121,318.-11!, whole
amountof receipts for tho year $j2,.r."XM2;
whole amount expended S3S.41HSS
leaving a balance on hand at the com¬
mencement of the yearl882 of S14.1W.17.
The wholo number of persons of sihool
age in.Arizona as sliownjby tho lust school
census was 5,300. The wholo number of
persons of school age reported as attend¬
ing some portions of tho year, 3.S-I4. The
whole number of teachers employed in
the public schools during the year 1112.
Whole number of public schools in the
Territory 148. Of these eight are report¬
ed as "graded," tho remaining 110 a?
"ungraded." During the year JSNl the
Superintendent of Instruction has vis¬
ited lft schools. The whole number of
private schools in Arizona is 9, iu which
there aro employed 15 teachers. The
report on the whole, is a very excellent
one showing much care and painstaking
on the part of theSuperintendent."
A rnACTiCAi. joko which involves
danger to limb or life is the joke of an
idiot. One would think that enough
fun might be found without playing
with .,-inpowder or lightning. Of course
; o..ng i -ople will be young people, and
it m ijuite impossible to put au old head
on young shoulders; but you have a right
t" expe-.-t that every jiair of shoulders
should bo decorated with at least some
ajxjlogj for a head. The jioor boy who,
the other night, was made a raving
maniac, "just for the fun of the thing,"
is n case in point He was afraid of
ghosts aud slept with a loaded pistol
under his pillow. An apparition ap¬
peared, and he tired five times, lmt tho
bullets had ben extracted from tho pis¬
tol by the goblin before ho put on hi
sheet and were apparently caught on the
lly and then thrown liack to the poor
iHiy'Hbed. Of course, he was scared.
Who would not le? Our hair would
turn whito in about twenty minutes
under such circumstances. Of course it
was only sport, but the loy is still tear¬
ing his iiair nni glariug vacantly into
space. Some p. ople are altogether too
funny to live, and the cost of the ex¬
periment would have been the same, but
tho joke would hava been on the i.ther
side, if by accident ono ot thoe bullets
had not been extracted from the pistol.
Instead of tioimr a play ghost there would
havo lieen a real one.
The Sunny Sid.- or Heath.
Tako tho snnny side of death: Sooner
or later it must come to all, and at the
latest it is only a few swiftly passing
days distant. Kings and potentates have
no" refuge from the summons of the dread ,
messenger. Earth is the great leveler ,
of man, and dust to dnst is tho heritage!
of all. Why, then, should we shrink
from its contemplation? Why banish
it from our thoughts with a shndder? It
i not rational to permit death to shadow
our ljves; nor i it rational to turn in ter¬
ror from what must as surely conio as
to-morrow's snu. lhoso who are sud¬
denly chilled day after day by tho
thoughts ot death, cither shadow their
lives by mudeds or reject the philoso¬
phy that should make every well-ordered
life wait seronely for its end. The ra¬
tional apprehension of tho upright man
is, not that ho may fall too soon in the
race, but that he "may linger too long
and outlive everything but hope.
