"crop summary.
In western Arizona, .crop3 under ir
rigation, such as late fruits and melonp,
pave ripened well dunng the week, but
the excessively hot and dry weather has
had an injurious effect upon tbe cattle
ranges which are now almost destitute
of grass in most localities, and will not
afford feed for many cattle during the
winter. In northern aod central Ariz
ona, nearly all crops have been harvest
ed. The yield m most cases has been
Eight. Cattle ranges are in a worse
condition than they have been in for
several years. In east central and east
ern Arizona, about the saxe state &f
affairs exists as regards the cattle ranges.
The corn and potato crops are Eight.
in most instances the corn has been out
for fodder owing to the scarcity of hay.
In eouthern Arizona, most crops have
ripened and been harvested. The bay
crop lias not been very good. In the
vicinity of Fort Huachuca, Eight show
ers of rain, and cool weather, have favor
ed the growth of grass on the ranges.
But in other localities the weather has
been hot and dry, and the hills and
mesas are parched and destitute of good
giass.

Thisisthe last Crop Bulletin that will
be issued daring the present season, as
it is believed they will be of no special
value, now that the growing season is
over. The success and general approval
of tbis bullet in surpassed the director's
most satguine expectations, when the
undeveloped agricultural resources of
Arizona were considered, and great
pleasure is here taken in thanking the
crop correspondents for their valuable
co-operation in furnishing reliable data.
To the hearty co-operation of the press,
the director also wishes to express his
indebted neee. The bulletins were pub
lished by weekly and daily papers in all
parts of the territory, nearly always in
full, giving a thorough dissemination of
the information.

THE TUCSON DEMOCRACY
AT WORK IN GRAHAM COUNTY.
A TICKET NOMINATED NOTED
FOR ITS INCOMPETENCY.
What a Spectator Saw.
Mb. Editor: The Associated Piers
dispatches and the Graham county Bul
letin, report the Democratic convention
held in Solomonville on the 22nd inst.
as an entirely harmonious affair, and the
ticket nominated unusua ly strong and
one calculated to inspire confidence acd
enthusiasm in the party nothing could
be further from the truth. The mere
fact 1 hat more than one-third of the en
tire membership of the convention com
prising some of the oldest settlers and
heavitet tax payers and representing
nearly every section of the county and
also tbe entire Mexican vote, left the
convention in disgust after the alleged
tempoiary organization shows conclus
ively that all was. not as "JVierry a3 a
marriage beJl. and that there was
"Something rotton in the state of Den
mark." Never iu the historv of Graham
county, and perhaps in the history of
Arizoaa, baa a convention been conduct
ed in such utter disregard of fairness
and the roles and precedents governing
conveations, never did a eo-called tem
porary presiding officer usurp more
power to s.nother the voices of his op
ponents an 1 control the action cf a con
vention, and never in tne history of the
county has a ticaet been nominated
which produced so much dissatisfaction
and ridicule. A bare recital of some of
the proceedings of the organization of
the c invention will give some idea of
the character of the convention.
Shortly after 10 o'clock Mr. George II.
Kelly, chairman of th9 county central
committee, called to order the largest
number cf-delegates ever assembled in
convention in Graham couEty. Kelly
ma le a speech in which he denounced
political trades and combinations, omit
ing to state, however, that he had spent
tbe week preceding in making trades
and combinations, and that at tne Uem
oeratic Territorial Convention at Tuc-
sen last May ho was party to a trade. A
combination which resulted naming as
the representative on the National Com
mittee from thu territory, a person un
known to the Democracy of Anzoua.
At the conclusion of his speech, Mr.
Daniel Ming was placed in iomination
for temporary chairman. Mr. George
11. ivelley, chairman of the Central Com
mittee, who was cot only a delegate to
the convention, but had been defeated
in his own precinct for delegate, was
a'so placed in nomination. After a viva
voce vote which was clearly in favor of
liB M"J declared nimseix. elected,
An appeal from his decision was lost
Ming, Kelly declared himself, elected.
the presiding officer of a body of which
he d:d not even claim to be a member.
He still more astonished the convention
by appointing a committee cn rules and
regulations aad the order of procedure
governing the convention. At this
juncture over one-third of the members
composing the delegations from the
precincts of Solmonville, San Jose, Ft.
(Jraut, Ft. Thomas. Aravipa, Dunlap,
Morenci and portions of tbe Clifton left
tbe hall, declaring their refusal to sub
mit to such sharp practice, a? it was, of
all the rules and practices governing
conventions. Among those who retired
from the convention were B. E. Norton,
Daniel Ming, W. C. Bridwell, Louis
Voelckel, George Bilraer, Edward Soto,
Abraham Diaz, Pedro Michelena,
Vicente Suarez, tiobert Steggall, John
W. Koll, Pablo Silcido, Ramon Perez,
Jose Ganzales, Roraulo Chavez and
Lorenzo Sanchez. The retiring mem
bers were willing to submit to a man
to preside over them who was cot a
member of the convention, but when
be usurped as temporary chairman the
power to appoint a committee to make
tne rules governing the convention,
which practically meant the nomination
of Keily's ticket, they thought it time
to assert their freedom from bossism
and tyrarny, and retire from a Conven-
tinn in which gag law was so merciless
ly appliel from the beginning.
If anything were wanting to complete
their disgust and justify tbe action of
the retiring members, the ticket sup
plied it. While several of the nomin
ees are good and capable men, still the
ticket as a whole, is notoriously and con
fessedly weak. A number of the nom
inees are utterly unfit for the positions
for which they are named. Seven out
of the thirteen precincts are unrepre
sented. Tbe western portion of the
county, and also the Mexican vote,
numbering over one-fourth of the en
tire vote of the county, were completely
ignored, although the people from the
western portion of the county and the
Mexicans clamored loudly for represen
tation and presented exceptionally
strong and capable men. Both the
people from the western part and the
Mexicans vow vengeance at tbe polls.
With the exception of the candidate for
council, every person nominated is from
what is known as the una valley portion
of the county.
So genera 13 the feeling of disgust
at the ticket and so universal the con
viction of its weakness, that there is an
effort being made by the bosees to pre
vail on some of the nominees to with
draw from the ticket. Republicans
opeply declare that if given the power
of making a ticket to defeat they would,
with several exceptions, have named
the very men selected by the Demo
crats. There is considerable talk among
some of the leading citizens of forming
a non-partisan ticket in view of tbe
manifest incompetency of the most of
the nominees. Spectator.
That Speech.
The following speech is said by the
Star, the organ of the Pima Democracy,
t3 have been delivered by Judge Wm
li Barnes at t lagstalt on the 21st inst..
at the time he placed Hon. B. C. Parker
in nomination for chairman of the Ter
ritorial Democratic central committee.
The judge, always a happy snd
felcitious speaker, appears to have
struck one of his best vent?.
Judge Barnes of Pima placed in nom
inating B. C. Parker of, Tucson as the
chairman of the Democratic central
committee of Arizona.
The judge was in his most earnest and
eloquent 6tra'n, he trembled, as trem
bles the tree of the forest upon the ap
proach cf a great con vulsion of natuie
he poed as though the honor of his
life's work was to be enshrined upon his
brow, and with a treoiu'ous falsetto
voice, in substance said: Mr. president
and the Democratic party of Arizona, I
rise to my feet t ) place in nomination
a Democrat, for tbis mott important of
til other offices of the Democratic party,
an office which requires great force of
character keen mental acumen, honesty
and purity of purpose, sobriety and in
tegrity of the highest order, and when I
mention the name of B. C. Parker, one
of the foremost, business men of Arizona.
I name the embodiment of all these and
many other virtues. (Cheers from the
Pima, Yavapai and Mohave delegations
and frcm the Yuma. Final and Graham
proxies.)
Yes, my fellow Democrats, there is
Ben Parker, a Democrat who has stood
in the front ra ks of Democracy for a
quarter of a century, and never once
faltered in his allegiance to the party,
never voted for or encouraged the elec
tion of a Republican (A voice, ab, there,
where is M. S. Snyder, Sturgis, etc.)
He never scratched a ticket or bolted
a nominee of the party, (A voice in un
dertone. How about Judge John S.
Wood, Fred G. Hughes, Gen. Rouse,
Goldbaum and others)
A man who has contributed of his
vast wealth to the party, a man who for
years has been the ack'nowledged head
of thaline of business he has been pur
suing duriDg the laBt twenty years in
Arizona.
The election of Ben Parker to the
honored and highest station of the Ari
zona Democracy means much, it means
a standing criticismto the vicious class-
es; it means a ch51enge to the criminal
class, v low voice. It might be a ray
of hope) yes, it means everything to the

ever maintained its niin, and ln-egnty
of principles. That party which has
seen a myrad of parties come a-,d pass
away. A party anchored in the princi
ples of popular self-government.
Such a party and its principles, I de
clare unto you should be personified by
the great and pure men of ihis party.
While principles are important, the rep
resentatives of these principles fire of
still greater importance. For it is a
fact, that while principles have always
existed, tbeir influence end enact 13
most felt when they are personified by
men whose purity cf character, patriot
ism atd unselhsh devotion to society
reflect these principles, in applying
them with a view of the greatest good to
the greatest number; such men give ex
pression, living force and vitality to
principles, such mea are the personih'
cation of principles.
Yeo gentlemen this choice of Arizona
Democracy will be worthy of a great

were adopted:
Whereas, the demands of legislative
opponents to protect ion policy area con-
s'ant menace to the sugar, rice and lum
ber interests of the thrid congressional
district and
Whereas, it is an indispensible and
self evident fact that these interests need
the fostering care of an avowed protec
tionist, and
W hereas, admittance to and counsel
ing with congressional protective com
mittee is an indispen able necessity to
successfull effort on behalf of these inter
ests, and
Whereas, democratic representatives
although believing in protective policies
are at a serious disadvantage m being
debarred entrance to and concur in action

A Paying Mine.
The claim on the south slope of the
Auachuca mountains, being worked by
members of the salvation army, is
proving to be a paying property. Two
rock crushers and a Frue-Vancer con
centrator are in place and ready to
6tart up. Tbe engine which runs the
machinery is a new one and the trial
run was successful. The concentrates
are worth $300 per ton in copper and
silver. Sufficient ore is in sight to
run the works for three years. It is
the intention to plant a colony at the
mire, which is in a very picturesque
part of the mountains. A nuinber of
Salvationists from Los Angeles will
join, and rulG3 similar-to the Topolo
bampo idea will be adopted on a broader
plane. The party is a contented and
happy one. Services are held morning
and evening. Prospector.

for. It was a plain, rpen, cohere busi
ness like proposition, with noifs or buts,
but placed in an intelligable manner so
that one and all could te at a glance or
understand at a single reading the sum
and substance of the proposition. From
the maimer and favor in which the pro
posed electric light was received last
night it can be classed as one of the fu
ture fixtures of the city. J. P. Locer
gan was present and as a starter was
willing to take SICK) in stock and guar
antee a subscription for a certain num
b r of lights for his store purpose". It
was shown at the meeting that El Paso
electric light syBt?m was gaining rapid
ly in public favor and public patronage
and the plant at Ncgales was inadequate
to supply the demand of that progressive
town and had to be doubled.
The president of the board will ap
point a business committee today to
further the project and bring it to a
definite status.
The following gives a synopsis of the
cost of operating the plant .and
minimum revenue:
The plant will be run from dusk, say
5 p. m., to midnight. Theriwill be re"
quired one engineer to look after the
station and operate the machinery and
also to do Lis own firing. One secretary
to look after the finances and manage
the business. Ote lineman to replace
lamps and install new ones. This
will take but little of a man' tim.
This p!ant can be run on a b;isij of 5 lbs.
of coal per H. P. hour The tot::l capa
city of the dynamoi 720-1G t andle power
lamps and to operate it will require 72
H. P. and if less number of lights are
run, the power will be in proportion.
The least number of lights to te in
stalled within GO days will be 100 burn
ing until y o clock and oO from dubk
until midnight.
Cost of operating based on th's sup

W. G. Stewart Speaks.
Last Saturday evening a large crowd
greeted W. G. Htewart, Republican
candidate for Congres?, a'though the
notice was very short. A stand was
erected in front cf tbe hotel and the
dining room chairs were kindly dona
ted by Mr. Gillespie, giving most of
those present comfortable seata. Supt.
Mclnernay had two are lights put up,
so that the arragements were firstclnss.
The ladies were out in forse. Quite
number of Democrats were present
and accorded tbe ppeaker a respectful
hearing. Mr. Stewart 6pok about
three-quarters of an hour. His man
ner was plain without any attempt
at flights of oratory and be occasional
ly illustrated his points with apt anec
dotes. Abuse of political opponents
was' entirely absent. After reviewing
the tariff and silver issues, he announc
ed himself as in favor . of 6titehood
but not favoring tbe constitution adopt
ed last year. Mr. Stewart made a most
excellent impression and will un
doubtedly rvceive the full Republican
vote here. ews Time.
Micky's Reception.
The reception accorded "Little Micky
Stewart," as the Phoenix Herald calls
him, upon his arrival in Phoenix, is
related by that paper, as follows:
W hen he stepped from the car it
crul 1 be een th t the sobriqueta had
been pretty well applied. IU is cer
tainly little, and his short cut beard
is of the ardent hue bestowed on the
children of the happy isle, denoting
quick temper and immense energy. He
wore a common business suit and a big
western hat shaded his face.
The Philharmonic band was there.
and the Republican' county central
committee with carnage", and tbe bund
played lively tunes, vc ij an ovati ju
was tendered the fa her of ( o:cr.i"o
county. He reached hid t a rr ag s?m
how and the band went in fio t md
the committee behind, up tbe ttreet to
the center of the city. Everybody
wanted to see the man who is to send
Mark Smith to grass. So the carriages
were driven up Washington street,
against Mr. Stewart's will, who would
have been glad to escape the demonstra
tion. He was finally driven to his hotel.
Ilia quarters were thronged with Re
publicans all the morning.

SOLID SILVER.
Boulder of Silver Embedded in
Ledge ol Clay Like Plums
in a Pudding.
Jesus Otero and E. Gonz dez brought
to the city day before yesterday prob
ably the highest grade ore ever brought
into the valley in large quantities. It
was tak?n from the Monte Cristo mine,
formerly known as tbe Fortuna, near
the lower dam of the Hass lympa. The
ore, if it may be called ore at all. re
sembles boulders of various s:zes and is
about 75 per cent pure virgin silver.
No assay has yet been mad of it but the
owners believe it will run- 8lT),00O to the
ton. A Repcelican reporter showed a
sample of it taken at random from a
large pile, to assayers and they believed
that the owners( estimate was not far
out of the way.
The mineral ib found in extensive
ledges of clay like huge plums in a pud
ding and are removed witn little diffi
culty. The old Fortuna mine bore the
same characteristic but it was supposed
to be exhausted.
Messrs. Otero snd Gonzalez relocated
the ForLuDa, changed its name and dis
covered new treasures of unknown ex
tent but of unprecedented -richness.
The Fortuna baa a history. It waa
discoveredin April, JSS9, by two broth-
era named Salido, Mexicans from Sonora
and non-reeicents or the United btates.
In order to locate it they toot ia a form-
er countryman named uuiz, wno had
legally become a citizen, atd gave him
a one-tbird iuterest in tho mine.
About $30,000 was taken out in a com
paratively short time and tbe very rich
ness cf the ore which is. precisely the
same as that now ia tbe "possession of
Messrs. Otero and Gonzalez led to
trouble. It waa like taking out tiiver
..'(.. r av-t the partners began remnv
ing it independently ef one Another and
selling the pronuct. At Lst it became
necessary to suspend operations and a
freezing out process was commetced.
At last a sort of eomproraise was ef
fected between the brothers, and Ruiz
was given power of attorney to eettle
so:ne U-enl ousicess connected with th
mine. Taking advantage of hia power
he sold out the brother's interest to a
man numed Vasquez living in this city.
After this, Ru z and Vasquez were
afraid to go to the mine for the Salidos
wer.- known to be men who valued
human life lightly.
A compromise wis later efTctei ,
through tbe mediation of Dr. W. W. 1
Jonep, of Pboenix, by whih the Salidoa (
recovered toeir interest aro they ac
cordingly turned over a one-third inter
est to Dr. Jones. About this time the
mine seeroed to be exhausted end Dr.
Jones turned his interest ver to A. J.
Porteri. In some way Ofero had ac
quired an interest in the mine which
waa now practically abandoned by all
the others. O'ero kept up his work
retained his cliim and last winter made
the discoveries which will make him
rich. Last Janinry the claim cf all
the "others lapsed and Otero relocated j
the mine, though there is a doubt as to
the legality of his procedure. It is un
like'y, however, that his claim .will ever
come into center.
Thit part of the country has for years
be j supposed to conta n a fabulously
rich silver mine, but as one prospector
remarked, "it used to be a mighty un
healthy country to discover anything
valuable in." It waa the abode of cut
throats and assassins in the early days
of half a dozen years ago and it waa as
much aa a man's life was worth to lay
claim to anything which might be de
sired by anyone elee. Republican.

i The Flneat Private Library in the World
About to n sold.
For some time past it has bepn -
j mored that the famous Althorp library
j which Dibdin culled the finest private
collection in. the world, was about to be
sold, and now the? announcement is
made upon authority, says the St.
James' Gazette. It is hoped to sell it"
en bloc, but should that t be possible
it will be put up at auction. Selling'
the most famous of the world's private
libraries in lump ean mean onlr mo
thing selling it to A-r.erica. We trust
that may not happen, since Lord
Spencer"collection contains many Vol
umes which it is national pride to pos
sess sivh, for instareo as the famous
Valdarfar "Boccaccio." which Lord,
i:iamlf.rd wrested from the second
Earl Spencer for 'J I.Ct',0. to be ultimate
ly lxmght for Althorp for the bagateUe
of 7o0. It will Te an epoch-making
sale, for this great library contains
some 50.000 volumes, mostly priceless.
Scarce editions on vellum and large
paper, magnificent printing, and daz-
ing bindings bv Pasdcloun and Rotrer
I'ayne these are its glories. Manv of
ine 000KS, too, nave famous histories.
They have felt the touch of the Pompa
dour or of Diane de Poitiers,or the ele
gant grasp of Francis I. There are
eighty-two out of th ninety-nine
known productions of Caxton, to say
nothing of the famous Mentz Psalter, a
copy of which has fetched 5.000. To
.sell the Althorp library, indeed, is al
most as though we were to sell the
rarest rarities of the printed book de-
partment of the British museum.
