The nomination of Judge DoForest Porter as candidate for Delegate in Cod press, by tlie Republican Conven¬ tion, gives general satisfaction to tho people of the Territory. He ia recog¬ nized a a gentleman of splendid ability and good judgment, and his election will insure proper national legislation in behalf of Arizona, snob as the present Delegate has shown bimgelf nnable to obtain. Mr. Portor, too, has long been a resident of the Territory, and is iden¬ tified with its interests and progress. Avery insignificant oleznent of the ltepcblican party are not enthusiastic over the nomination, but this feeling is inevitable with all nominations, and soon disappears as tire canvass ml van cos. A little reflection shows the folly of all sueh disaffection. When a man enters a political convention, he trill respect and follow the majority if ho ie a man of honor. While the minority havo rights that should be recognized and respected, nothing bat fraud which af¬ fects the result of tho convention will justify tho minority in refusing to DC oepi the result as final and binding, and it then becomes their duty to use every honorable effort to secure tho triumph of the expressed will of the majority. Parties are not formed for the advancement of men, but for tho advancement of principles, and it nat¬ urally follows that the man should re¬ ceive the support of tho whole party who .best represents those principles. There U but one way that political par¬ ties can adopt to ascertain who that man is, and that is to obtain the opin ion of the representative men of the party. When this is ascertained, the nominee is supposed to represent the principles advocated by tho party. What- DEJ40CRACTS 1DSEI0K. Tho ways of Providence are truly in¬ scrutable. For many years political economists have been puzzed to de¬ termine the mission of the Democratic party. Philosophers havo shown that in tho economy of naturo every living thing is created for a purpose, but they have probably not considered the Dcm- ocrotie party as possessed of sufficient THE RAILROAD WASHOUTS. The blockade has at last been raised and travel upon the Southern Pacific resumed. The principal washout oc¬ curred between Maricopa and Sweet¬ water stations, in the sink of the Snnta Cruz river. This sink is the receptacle of a watershed of miles in extent, and at this place the track was more or less undermined for ten rules. The water animation to be placed in the category covered the whole valley, and in places ever hie private associations and char acter may be, in his capacity as candi date be is, and from the nature of things most be, supposed to represent the prin ciplex publicly advocated by the party, and ie under a sacred obligation to faithfully represent them to the best of his ability, and to so conduct himself as not to bring reproach upon the party. A majority of the representative men having passed their opinion that he so represents the principles advocated by the party and will so conduct himself, he ia entitled to, and honor dictates that he should, receive the hearty, undi videtl support of every individual mea¬ lier of the ierty. Such united and earnest action will crown our party with sncceas, and place Arizona among the progieaeive bectioneof the nation, and in a iosition to derive the utmost bene fits attainable. of living things. The Columbus, Ohio, Gazette, however, has set the question of the mission of that party forever at rest. It says that the "little acorn sprout that lifts its tender blade above the turf has need of varions conditions of wind, climate and temperature be¬ fore it will devolop into the sturdy oak. It will have warm snn, gentle breezes and refreshing showers. But these alone will not suffice. It must experience the heavy snows and bitter frosts of winter. It must and will survive the storms and tempests of various seasons and capri¬ cious changes. So it is with reforms. The active and bitter opposition which they encounter, and which seems at the outset to threaten obstruction to their further progress is tho very substance on which they feed and grow. Tomeet this necessity for organized opposition to various progressive ideas the Demo¬ cratic party beems happily designed by Providence. They violently opposed the emancipation from slavery of tho colored race, and the war to compel the submission of the seceding States. When the war was on, thoy furnished bitter opposition to the itsuo of tho girnbuck, tho government's note of hand as a means of carrying on the war. Their opposition, as we all know, was overcome. When the necessity and reason for the greenback had become things of the past, and statesmen were beginning to shape things toward a spo- cie oasis, the .Democracy developed a love for the fiat money which is seldom equalled, and their opposition to re- CAUSE OF WASHOUTS. The month of August, in Arizona, is usually accompanied with a plentiful fall of rain, which seems to have in¬ creased since the railroads have spanned ite sterile deserts. During the heavy showers that almost daily occur large volumes of water fill the natural outlets of the watershed, and within a few min utes raging torrents sweep onward with destructive violence. The railroad com¬ pany lias suffered greatly by the de¬ struction of its roadbed and culverts, and there seems to lie no remedy for the trouble. The slight deposit of sand upon the surfae covers a vast bed of cement rock, impervious to water, over which the floods rush wildly about seek ins an outlet for its restless current An experience of but yesterday illns tratea in a small degree the sudden dan gets mat beset a traveler upon the desert. A gentleman riding to this city from Myers district en deavored to reach Coyote Springs on T needay evening, to camp, and was com I elled to travel some distance after nightfall. He suddenly discerned a huge moving mass before him in the semi darkness, rushing along with an ominous noise. As no rain had fallen at that particular point for two days,hethonght it could not be a stream, and he, there¬ fore, proceeded to investigate the mat¬ ter, a fortunate conclusion as it after¬ wards proved, for he found crossing the level road a seething stream of water, fifty feet wide, which had cut perpendi¬ cular banks on either side several feet deep. Camp was made for the night near the stream, and the next morning it had nearly subsided and was crossed some distance above with little difficulty The present washouts are quite for midable, and miles of track are waehed away at several points, involving a ne¬ cessity for prompt and energetic repairs. All wehtern trains lire held at stations, and at present it is impossible to gut a pound of freight or any mail matter. With characteristic energy the South em Pacific company will again have their trains running on schedule time, unless further rams intervene. sumption was bitter and uncompromis¬ ing. To resume was to let slip- the dogs of war and famine. Industry would be paralyzed, trade would languish and commercial darkness would settlo down upon the land as a pall of gloom. Bat resumption came, and when seed time and harvest still followed in their accustomed order, when commerce re¬ fused to fulfill the prophecy of the dem¬ agogue, when the hum of industry was discovered to be unhushed, lo and be¬ hold! the Democrat became as good a hard money man as anybody. Then followed a season of low pres¬ sure for the Democracy. For a few years there seemed to be no particular 'movement" to antagonize and the partv began to degenerate. Garfield was elected by an increased majority and the future for the Demo¬ cracy looked well nigh hopeless. But now the temperance question begins to assume important proportions. This is like unto "the shadow of a great rock in a weary land" and the Democratic party have cone into tho opposition heart and soul. History has a habit of repeating it¬ self. When tho results of the temperance agitation have been achieved, as tliey certainly will be, not perhaps, as some now advocate, but modified and influ¬ enced, as we hope and believe- by the wholesome conservative element of our people, the Democracy will probably be found hunting for some new reform to antagonize, some new movement to which they can give assured tokens of success by their determined opposition." it was cut out to tho depth of ten feet under tho track. Al! this had to bo curbed up with ties, and the ground be¬ low was so soft that in places the curb¬ ing is twelve or fourteen feet deep. The task of repairing waj herculean, and after passing over it the writer is stir prised that tho .road was made at all passable in the nhort space of time. These delays are tedious and troublesome to travelers, but the penee entailed upon the company and the troublo occasioned the managers of tho road is simply enormous. Col. A. A. Bean, tho Superintendent of this Division, with J. F. Knapp, his ts- sistant were on the ground in person and labored incessantly to open the road and they deserve great credit for ac¬ complishing the worx so speedily and successfully. The place where this washout occurred is treacherous ground and trouble is inevitable daring the rainy season. The only way to provide against it is to move the road further to the south onto the b;gh ground, make only one crossing of tho sink of the of the Santa Cruz and make that with sufficient sluiceways and strong enough to withstand the floods. This change the company will be compelled to make, and we think it would be wi je economy to make it at once. The company, through its officers, did all in its power to make the detained travelers comfortable during the blockade on tho burning sands of the desert. When Superintendent Bean arrived at Miracopa, the ice supply was exhausted, and tho passengers were be ing compelled to drink the warm water. The Colonel at once ordered a supply of ice from Yuma, and the act will be gratefully remembered by the detained travelers, These washouts are an important fac¬ tor in the expense of railroading in this Territory, and should be taken into consideration by the public in all their movements affecting railroads. Theso floods are irresistible and inevitable, and almost bailie the highest skill of engin¬ eering. When water comes with such force that it will excavate holes to the depth of ten or fifteen feet, with sides al¬ most perpendicular, the magnitude of the difficulty can be approximately comprehended. It is evident that these freaks of the elements must be n source of continual expense to the company. I H ilUU I PACIFIC COAST. wounded another stepdaughter, aged 10, with an ax.

What a commentary upon the law and its administration is the ghastly affair which took place in Globe during Wed¬ nesday night. Knowing thot the ends of justice are almost generally defeated through tho unreasonable technicalities in law and defective statutes, the good peoDle of Globe gathered en masse nnd proceeded with the utmost good order LAND OFFICE ORDER. A late telegram from Washington says that the Land Office officials are much exercised over tho change in the deposit systom made by the recent Con gress, and are apprehensive that the system will be greatly impaired by the change. Some go so far ns to assert that it will be valueless. Last year there was deposited under this system about Sl.800,000, of which ?S00,000 was paid out as expenses. It is not esti mated mat over tjhw.ijuu win be re¬ ceived this fiscal year. Large decreases from the present deposits aro looked for in W'yoming, Idaho, Xovada, Colorado, Xew Mexico, Utah, Arizona and Mon¬ tana, while an increase is expected in Dakota only. In view of the change the Department has thought it neces¬ sary to issue new instructions to Begis- tcrs and Keceivers, as follows Tho act of Congres. approved August ibtilL making appropriations for the sundry civil expenses of the government lor tne Uscal jear ending June 30. IbSi, provitles that no certificate issued for a deposit of money for tho surrey of lands under section 2103 of the Bevised and decorum to a swift and full trial of I Statutes, and the act approved March 3, The Star roiterates its statement that our present Delegate in Congress has been neither inactive nor incompetent, yet the facts do not justify such a con elusion. Hie activity consisted chiefly in mailing a few public documents to seve.al of bis constituents, and his com petency waa shown by the perfunctory introduction of several measures and then anchoring liimeelf in his comforta¬ ble seat to await the result Mr. Oury apologizes for hie shortcomings by as¬ serting that be was snubbed by tho committees to whom his measures were referred, and that his political faith was the great obstacle in the way of his doing any good for the people of thia Territory- If this be so, and no one doubts that be was certainly handicapped by his political affiliation, Mr. Oury should, out of re¬ gard for the interests of Arizona and its people, make a little self-sacrifico of his own personal ambition, and advocate the election of a Bepublican, who will not be hampered by such potent disabil ities. The Star, bowover, has shown by comparison with the record of tho Dem¬ ocratic Delegate from Montana, that Arizona's representative lacks tho per¬ sonal ability to accomplish any good for oar iieople. We are not quite so severe upon Mr. Oury, for we believe that he bag it in ms power to accomnlish won dors for Arizona, by being relegated to the obscurity of private life at his Florence home, at the coming olection. the stage robbers and murderers of Dr. Vail and Andy Hall; found them guilty of murder and at once hanged th m It was no excited mob that awarded the punishment meted out, but a quiet and determined assemblage of otherwise law-abiding people, who do not propose to tolerate crime in their midst nor per¬ mit criminals to go unwhipt of justice. Lynch law is certainly wrong in prin¬ ciple and its practice is demoralizing in the extreme, and when there is a bare possibility of justice in the courU it should never be tolerated. In the present instance, however, the provoca¬ tion was certainly great, and if lynch law is ever justifiable it was in this case. The telegraph brings news of similar acts in all parts of oiir country and each sounds a note of warning to our law¬ makers and administrators. We want laws shorn of all technicalities; laws ihat will deal out exact justice to all and visit proper punishment upon the guilty criminal with uner¬ ring exactness. As it now stands, a slight clerical error in the pro¬ ceedings, or an unguarded statement, or one of a thousand other insignificant irregularities, seems to condone for crime, nnd gives to tho red-handed mur¬ derer his liberty. Xo wonder that tho people sometimes grow weary of the law's defects, and wipe out the existence of the enemies of law and good order, with a short shrift.

They will inaugurate a popular temperance movement next The nomination made by tho Kc- pablieans for Delegate does not please the Domoorate. It was really cruel in the' convention to throw such a wet blanket over their hopes. The Citizen would have ns believe that the Bepublicuns in Congress have entered into conspiracy to grant no favors to Democratic communities. In short that tho people must forego their political convictions in order to bo treated fairly by a Bepublican Congress. This is a severe criticism upon the honesty nnd justice of Ite- publicans; but coming from a leading organ of their party it must bo correct Star. Tho Citizen never intimated any such thing, but it did say that Delegate Oury apologizes for his shortcomings on the score of his political affiliation, while the Star pulverizes Oury by show¬ ing that Montana's Democratic Dele¬ gate secured for his Territory great nnd substantial benefits, while Oury under similar circumstances, got nothing for Arizona. A POOR ME1SORT. The mail service in Apache county is pernaps tne most inadequate in the Ter¬ ritory. There is really but one service in the county, and that by no means re¬ liable.

Mr. Oury docs not seem to have re¬ membered his promises in the postal matters of Apache, or elso the good nnd faithful seed ho has planted in Washing¬ ton requires an unuiually long time to germinate. It should le borne in mind by all persons entitled to vote at tho coming election, that a new registration is re¬ quired, anil every voter must be regis¬ tered by the middle of October, or he will lose his suffrage.

T., August 2t Last night was an eventful one in tho history of Globe, and will furnish a theme for con¬ versation throughout the Territory. Lafayette V. Grimes and C. B. Hawley, residents of this place, forfeited their lives in a summary manner by their own confession, made without intimidating. They acknowledged the robbery of the Wells, Fargo .t Co.'e express treasure chest, containing SS.CMO in gold coin, and the killing of tho messenger, Mr. Andy Hall, one of the most trusty of the Company's messengers, nnd who has a very favorable record as one of Powell's men, who somo years ago explored the Colorado canyon. They also acknowl¬ edged the killing of .Mr. W. F. Vail, a native of Syracuse, Xew York, who ac¬ cidentally happened to be in the vicini¬ ty of the robbory, who had started on tho morning of August 20th to vifcit some mining property in the direction of the outrage. Last evening between 7:30 and 8 o'clock, tho sheriff and posse brought in from the Bloody Tanks the two prisoners, and at once placed tbem in the jail. As soon as it became known that they wero in town, a large meeting took place at the jail, and after considerable parley, between tho officers and the people, the prisoners were surrounded and taken to Dr. Stalla's hall, where n court of in- quiry was organized and a full hearing had. It wan decided to hang them without dilay. The prisoners asked for three hours' time and promised to re¬ veal tho hidden placo of tho money stolen. This was acceded and they, in company with about thirty citizens re¬ paired to the foot hills of the Pinal mountains, about four miles from town and there pointed out the hiding place of the money and most of it was found ind taken in charge by Mr. Vosburgh, agent of the express company at this place. Tho party then returned to town and reassembled at tho hall, when Haw¬ ley asked for time to make out a written confession and arrange his wordly affairs. This was granted and at a quarter bofcro two o'clock this morning the church bell waa heard to toll. A procession was formed, guarding the prisoners on either side by well armed men and moved in tho direction of a largo sycamoro tree on Main street near Pinal creek. All was quiet and orderly, not n word spoken or a whisper heard ns the solemn march advanced, the prisoners not even tlincning or expressing a sign of fear, hnt advanced with a firm step, and in a short time were dangling in the nir, both fastened to the same limb of the tree. All the business houses, includ¬ ing Faloons, closed their doors early in the evening, and not "the least disorder occurred and not a drunken man was seen on the streets. Thus ended this tern hie scene of retributive justice to hardened criminals. A brother of the young Grimes executed, who was en¬ gaged hero in the photograph business, is also a confessed participant in this affair, but owing to his not being on the ground when the pooling wts done he was remanded back to jail to await fur¬ ther action. His poor, sickly wife and four small children, who were present during the trial, made a scene well cal¬ culated to draw sympathy from the crowd, and hence he was spared to meet his deserts at some other time. has a family in Salt Lako City, and was engaged hero in tho wood and charcoal business, and stood fair as a citizen. Grimes is a young man without family, and is said to hare been engaged once before in a robbery of this kind in northern California. The dead men were left hanging to the tree until eight o'clock this morning, when an inqnest was held by tho Coroner and the bodies handed over to tho Sheriff. Special to the CiTizxx. Lordsburg, X.

Mr. Wilcox tells a very interesting narrative of tho every-day life at the agency. In all, there are about 100 whito men and 5,000 Indians living there. Two compauies of soldiers are camped within fifteen miles of the agency. The white men at the agency are. all em¬ ployes of the Government and under the direct charge of the agent Of the one hundred men. thirtv-five aro scouts, who also act in the capacity of policemen at the agency. In the adobe jail there are at present confined thirteen Indian prisoners, who have been arrested for murder committed while on depredat¬ ing expeditions. The jail is small and entirely inadequate to the purposes of a prison. If not guarded night and day by a strong posse, there would be noting to prevent the prisoners from escaping. Moat of these Indians have now been imprisoned for nearly a year, and Mr. Wilcox says that they'must be given a trial soon or they must be re¬ leased. Of course they have the sym¬ pathy of the outside Indians, and they are raising a deep howl because they have not been given a trial long ago. The Government has been very dilatorv in the matter. One or two attempts nave been made to ge the condemned into court, but each time the attempt has failed. The prisoners are kept heavily shackled, the irons being welded to their legs by the Government black¬ smith. Tho other white men at the ogency aro employed in various capaci¬ ties. Twice a week rations are distributed among the Indians, and on sueh davs the SCENES AT THE AGENCY Are very lively. The rations issued con¬ sist of beef, flour, coffee and sugar, rice, beans and com meal, pepper and salt, and the usual conJimeuts. Eight; beeves are killed every week for distrl bntion among the redskins. One hun¬ dred sacks of flour are iwed weekly. The Indians are regularly counted twice n week. This is a ardnous tin dertaking, but now has been brough' down to such a fine point that in one day the various tribes can be enumerat¬ ed. The work is done by the ascent and an employe of the Agency who is ac¬ quainted and can tell by name almot every Indian on the reservation. They will ride around rawhide when it has been dried. The Engligh did not baild up their Eastern trade until comparatively late in the day. Even after the defeat of the Armada nothing was done until the wreck of a great Portumiese Indiaman (with a cargo valued at 370,U00) on the Devonshire coast, awoke the ambition ' of Bristol's "merchant ventures." ( It is expected that the four manufac- ' tunes of Montgomery, Vt, will turn ont 400,000 butter tubs the present season, of all sizes. A larger proportion of ten, twenty and thirty-pound tubs are called for than usual. The material for hoops has become exhausted in that region, and is now brought from Michigan. There ut a sudden and curious demand for English cotton goods from Western Asia. bat are known a mulls and langiiM are said to be in immense demand, while of "fancy stripes" the nnpply hi wholly inadequate to meet me popular wisnes. in i'ersia new i-umn goous are Decoming more popular. At present black cambric are in much request. A report just issued by the American Silk Association shows" that 1SSI was the best year the American factories ever had, and also that in the trade. It is estimated that the American peo¬ ple spent over 5105.000,000 for silk in the fiscal year ending July 1st, one- third of this large sum going to our native manufacturers. One of the curious industries of the country has its principal home at Xew- berae, X. C. This is the manufacture of wooden platters, plates and trays. The nmw r useu lor mis purpose is snp- pneu ny me noignnonng camps. A huge log is rounded by a circular plane ana men put into a machine, which. with great accuracy and swiftneen, cuts off thin strips of wood. Wha these strips have been ont into square pieces and thoroiigly dried they are made pliabl- by steam. In that condition tney are moulded in the shapes deeired. The factory is now making 100,000 plates a day, according to a report which it is nam to neueve.

At the end of the day's round-up it can easily lie ascer¬ tained if there are any Indians off the res-rration. The Indians lead a very indolent life, and seem indifferent to everything ex¬ cept to lazily enjoy themselves and draw their rations. They horserace a little and gamble a great deal. One day an Indian will have a horse, a rev jlver or two and good clothes; the next day luck will have gone against him, aud he has neither horse nor weapons, and his good clothes of tho day before are shattered rags. Mr. Wilcox says that the greatest fail¬ ure which Agent Tiffany made was in trying to educate the Indian youth. Tho idea was commendable enough, but it was not n project to snit the Ind.ans. Mr. Tiffany was a clergyman before he entered the government service, and his great hobby at first was t j teach the YOrNO I.NWAN IDEAS How to shoot He had a magnificent school house erected, by far the hand¬ somest building at tho agency. But he could not persuade the Indian boys and girls to attend, and the parents did not take any interest in the matter what¬ ever. Tho result is that to-day the building stands idle and empty, the window glass having been broken out by the young people, and the walls be¬ daubed with caricatures of men and animals, executed in the highest style of Indian art. There is tho agency proper and a sub- agency a short way distant. The build¬ ings consist of a few residences for the agent, his assistant, the resident physi¬ cian, a store house, blacksmith shop, the post trader's place of business and n few scattering buildings. Since Agent Tiffany left San Carlos the agency has been in charge of Dr. 1'angborn, the resident physician. Mr Indian ewN. The followiug from the Globe Chron¬ icle shows the all-pervading state inse¬ curity turongnout Ujat section because of Indians now off the reservation: "On the Mh instant a scouting party of the Globe Bangers, numbering seven men, leu uiooe lor anotlier expedition through tne ranches beyond MoMilleu. At Oleasou s ranch on the Salt Itiver tney fonnd nineteen head of cattle killed as well as a number of calves and on the rhnge rounded up thirty-two head. In all hou seventy-six head were saved, i'hw shows that over 100 head of stock, mostly belonging to Silas Tidweil, has beon driven-ouT by the redskins. It ws attempted to track the cattle, but heavy rains bad deluged the section and wash¬ ed out all marks by which they might be louowed. Alter senrening along the river the party returned to McMillen aud, dividing into two, proceeded to searcu me country in tnat vicinity for came anu Indians. Saturday morning Tidweil and Mack McClutchon had reached Hess' ranch, about nine miles north of the town, wben tney suddenly came upon a camp of Indians. The nearct redskin wbs on the top of a nar¬ row ridge, about fifty yards away and. ULsuspicuiiis of danger, was evidentli gatbenng acorns. The meu fired three snots at ima, one ball striking him in the bead and another in the side He fell dead in his tracks and Ma)k dashed up to where the horses of tho Indians were grazinir and cut out a laare that bad been stolen from P.

The men then retreated to a more seenre po¬ sition, wnue tne redskins, nambeiinu five bucks and a squaw, nulled the bodv of their comrade into the gulch, threw it over one of the horses and rapidly de¬ camped in the directiou of San Carlos, thirty five miles distant. As soon as the camp was deserted, the men went down to it and saw that without a doubt they bad made a good Indian. The horses w. re loaded down with agency provi¬ sions, mostly nour, which tliey were evidently carrying to their brother rene¬ gades, as the quantity was much in ex¬ cess of what they could nse. Messr. 1 Hi well and MeCIutcbon are to be eon gratulated for the service tliey have done.
