The former is lanrcly denend- ent on excitements, on unusual pro ductions, and on the sneculative in clinations of the public. The latter is sustatnea by nam money iai;en from thn irround in navintr nuantities by something as substantial as the precious metals themselves.

Aloncy is ostensibly raised ior the purpose of bringing a mine into a navinc condition, or to furnish it with hoisting works, or reduction works, or all three, in case tney are ueeucct. Consequently, the resources of the company s treasury should not be wasted in nny oilier way nor usou ex trnvnirnn tlv in anv other ouarter.

It is where the reverse is xhe case, wnere a mines contents are concealed, its stock de- nrpcspil and discouraced investors led to sell out at low figures, that legiti mate mining has no piacc. There are many cases wnere capiuu nnmif.il in mininp- entemriscs. In one instance it may be absolutely nec essary to place a deserted and -watcr-fiiinri minn in nroDer shane. In an other its main advantage is in expe diting matters, enlarging production and in reducing expenses. Such in vestments are advantageous and rea sonable where the value of mines have been properly tested . But the mining industry suffers severely from invest ments made on properties uuuci worthless or of too limited a charac-o- ,r mnnv tho. outlav. The East is full of such companies organized on such properties, and more proposi tions of like nature are now awaiung: the decision of moneyed men.

The Locomotive l'lifjlnccr. The London Telegraiib, in a recent editorial, pays a splendid aud deserved tribute to the men who hold the lives of hundreds in their hands the lo cotn&tive engineers. It says: Most passengers tire iguorant, happily, of the pitfall under their feet as one is of the intricate process of digestion, or of the human frame. They lake their journeys as they do their food, trusting blindly that, somehow or other it will be all right, and that the narrow corners will be shaved, and it seldom occurs to them to express their thankfulness lor the manly devotion which contributes to their safety. While faith is the guiding rule of the traveler, duty is the absorbing prin ciple of the railway servant. But does it never occur to the wakelul traveler as the lamps Hash past him as tho train rushes over bridges and through a network of of signals as the tunnel seems a duller road and the lighted station a suppressed scream, when the pulse of the motion never stops nnd the impetus at time becomes almost terrible, what a sense of grat ification there ought to be toward those lonely men who taithful to the end turn this point and that, shift the lamps, keep watch and ward aud clear the way lor the swift cxnress? Those who have trusted themselves to this splendid power are utlerly powerless. Their lives are in the hands of the men who drive the train, and of the signal men who watch. Yet thero is no sleep in the signal box or at the tunnel mouth ; there is no conversa tion, no distraction, nothing but a dull monotony of duty. A score f things may have happened; the staff may be shorthanded, some one is unexpected ly on the sick list, some good natured fellow znay have done double duty out of pure comradeship; but this makes no dillcrcncc in the safely of the line. There need be no fear when uich men know their duty and do it. Iltvlslmi of I'ima County. There seem to be some doubts in the minds of our Tombstone Iricnds as to the sincerity of members-elect to the Legislature from Tucson and the western portion of the county as to their future action on the creation of a new county from the cast end of this (Pima) county, if we are to believe the little reminders which from time to time appear in the Epitaph and Nugget. The question ot a division of the county was discussed before the elec tion, and while no promises were ex acted or given, several candidates on both tickets voluntarily expressed themselves in favor of such a division, if the citizens of the eastern portion of the county desired it. Not because they were in favor of such a division, but simply as a matter of justice to that portio'u of the count-. It would be to the interest of Tucs-on to have the limits of Pima county remain where they arc; but when w e look at the other side of the qucst'on, and con sider the injustice of asking cit'zens from the extreme eastern portion of the county 150 to 175 miles away to come to Tucson to look after somo little, petty nUair which, under the law, requires attention, or to record a deed or mining location, or to search the records or attend court, we can not fail to sec the injustice of trying to maintain our present limits, ami if the eastern portion of the rouuty desire to strike a division line and form a new counly we could not reasonably ob ject to so just a demand; nor do we believe that nny objection would be made by our people. The only ques tion upon which there could be any differenco of opinion would be the establishing of the division line. But that could, we have no doubt, at the proper time, be amicably arranged by the members-elect from Pima County, to whom it would bo referred in case a division is determined upon.

Its Independent New York Line Open Through Train Kun lletwcen Washington and New York Hos tility ortho I'ennsylvanla Company Overcome. New York Dally American Exchange. The New York and Washington line of the Baltimore and Ohio Com pany has become an accomplished lact. Yesterday nassenser trains be gan running, the first ones leaving iSew lork lor Washington, anu Washington for New York at 9 a. m. The trains which arrived in this city were about forty minutes behind the schedule time, but it vas claimed at the ofhee ol the Central Hailroad ol New Jersey that this was on account of the newness of the through line. We expect to be a little slow in our running time at first," Judgo Lathrop, the receiver of that company, said, " until cvcrythini: jrets in proper order and we know just what we can do. So far as we have been advised here, there was no detention on tho line, and no hindrance was encountered at Philadelphia from the Pennsylvania Hailroad." The time-tables of the new line had not been fully prepared yesterday, but the number ol trains betwcen New York aud Philadelphia, it was stated, had been increased to sixteen. The New York connection of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is made over the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore, the Philadelphia and Reading and its leased lines, the North Pennsylvania and the Bound Brook, and the Central Kailroad of New Jersey. For some years past the Baltimore and Ohio Company has been striving to establish a line to New York independent of the Penn sylvania Railroad, but its success has been prevented by the position winch was taken by the Pennsylvania re garding the use of the Junction road in Philadelphia, over which the Bal timore aud Ohio is compelled to run its trains to secure connection with the Reading roads. The Junction Koad is a short piece ot tracu winch was built jointly by the Pennsylvania, the Reading and Ihe Philadelphia, ilmmgton and Ualtimore com panies. Tho last mile and a half of the five miles of road was built entire ly by the Pennsylvania Company, which refused to turn in the bills of its cost to the other two companies for their proportionate share in the ex pense, and which claimed to own ab solutely tins portion ot the road. As soon as the plans of the Baltimore and Ohio were completed tor its road to New York, litigation was begun to test the validity of the position as sumed by the Pennsylvania Company, aud several weeks ago a decision was rendered in the United Stales Circnit Court at Pittsburg, favorable to the Baltimore nnd Ohio. The last named company was conceded to have full use of the Junction Road, and while an appeal may bo taken to the United States Supreme Court, an injunction restrains it Irom mtcner itnr with the running of the Baltimore aim" Ohio trains over the Junction Road Ualky Horses. A correspondent of tho Ruralist writes: Many aud varied jiave been the plans, both kind and harsh, tried for the cure ot balkmess in norses by parties troubled, delayed and pro voked iu this way. Having had con siderable experience in the handling of such horses, I have found the follow- in a cood remedy. It is easily and quUkiv performed, and has never, so far as 1 am aware, failed to cure: Two persons arc required for the trial. One should hold the reins while the other fastens a short strap or rope a halter- strap, always at hand, answers the purpose weil jest be'ow the fetlock of a foreleg; then, going forward, he should pull on the strap until the horse lilts his loot; continuing to null, the foot will be brought forward and set down a little in advance of the other. The horse, thus thrown out of a natural position, will move forward to regain his equilibrium. Another pull will causo another move for ward. This may be repeated several time?, or until the horse moves with out having his foot pu'led forward. Usually, the first or second pull will start him. Three or four such re minders, at most, will do the work. When the start is made it is generally an easy one. toometimes, however, 11 has the appearance of the horse being in a hurry to get away from the pro voking man with the strap; therefore, a stead' hand should manage the reins. I have never known a horse under this treatment to kick or act mean in any other way than to try to run. AVhcn he docs start oil, the hold on the strap should be given up. After having cone twenty-five or more yards, the horse should gently be brought to a stand and me strap re moved. Then try to start him with out the strap. It he does not move off at once apply it again. He will soon tire of being thus annoyed, and will give yOu nt lurthcr trouble in this way. " Spley Correspondence." Stock Report.

Complaints of Delay In Transportation and Hrceislve Itates of IrelKht Kenton Why and Wherefore. There arc nlways two sides to avery question, let it apnertain to railroads or anything else. Tlu-re are people in this world who will complain and find fault under all circumstances whose happiness appears to consist in making themselves perfectly misera ble. They consider thomselvis injured they are martyrs; nothing suits them; the world is against them in their opinion, aud yet if the whole of their rouble were sifted to the bottom, it; would be the old story of the moun tain in labor bringing forth a mouse. From the day on which the Southern Pacific Railroad opened its station a; this point, there have been those who have done nothing but growl and find fault at the " tardiness" of transporta tion and the excessive rates charged. This is natural, however; it is the re compense received by those whose en ergy, enterprise and capital have opened the doors to civilization, and made valuable that which has hereto fore been worthless. Only n short time since a mercantile house in this city received a letter from which we make tho following extract. The find fault mania has reached poin's east of us, for the complaining comes from near Lordsburg. It says: "This error on the part of your clerk ac counts in a great measure for the un accountable dclaj' in getting goods through from Tucson to this place. The tardiness displayed by the South ern Pacific Railroad in this regard and the arbitrary rates charged, is driving an immense traffic from Silver City, Georgetown, Hillsboro, Clifton.Shakes peare, and all surrounding mining camps east, and working serious dam age to the interests of California and Tucson. Rates from Chicago, St. Loins and New York are given us at but a trilling advance over the rates between here and San Francisco, Los Angeles or Tucson. This Is a matter worthy of your attention, and of remonstrance with the Southern Pacific Railroad officials." This " growl " is moderate in tone, but now let us hok at the other side of the question. With re spect to the word tardiness, as used by the complainaut, we suppose the term expresses uothiug ex cept it is used relatively. The Southern Pacific Railroad Compnny has built during the past year an un precedented number of miles of road. It has outstripped the Atchison Road by many miles, having alreudy passed the proposed end of the track, while it, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Road, is seventy or eighty miles distant, and the last station opened for business on that line is one hundred and thirty miles distant from Ihe Southern Pacific. The Southern Pacific has opened stations wherever they were demanded b' business, and as soon after the track reached the point as water could be fouud. It has also received freight and forwa.ded all that was offered without any interruption or delay ex cept such as may haveoriginated from storms or a pressure upon the road iu order to get building supplies Tor ward, it being of first importance, not only to the compairy, but to the citi zens of Arizona and New Mexico, that the track be extended as rapidly as possible. In order to build the road and at the same time do busi ness, it has had to run special t rat in with steel aud ties in order lo make up for delays on Eastern road. It also had to haul coal from Wyoming to New .Mexico, and even to buy coal in the San Francisco market, at rates two or three times higher than ordi nary. Notwithstanding these delays, which no amount of expense and nkill in management couM avoid, we ven ture to hsseit that, upon tho average, there is no road in the country which has moved its freight so promptly during the past four months as the Southern Pacific. There have been no instances of such delays as occurred upon the Atchison Road last fall aud summer by reason of freshels; no instances where consignees haw not received their freight in an incredibly shoit time as compared with limes when they had no railroad. Under these circumstances it seem to u- thut there is a want of judgment or fair ness upon the part of the person mak ing the complaint referred to. Now, again, as to the arbitrary rates charged : The Southern Pacific Railroad Company has not thus far by its busiues, been able to pay for opening the roatl. We have the most positive information of this. It de livers freight within forly miles of Silver City, while the Atchison road cannot deliver it any nehrertlian from one hundred to one hundred and thir ty miles. The rates charged by the Southern Pacific are but a very small percentage of the cost that the fault finders have been stib'ected to in ic cciving their freight before the South ern Pacific roml was built. As to driving traffic from Silver City, George town, etc., very little of the traffic of those sections lias ever come from this side. In the nature of things, very little can conic from Ibis bide. The question f relative rates from San Francisco and Chicago has very little to do with il. because the bulk of freight originates at the East, aud must first come from there to Califor nia, paying the cost of twenty-fivo hun dred miles of rail transportation before it can be distributed to New Mexico. Chicago is nearer the terminus of the Atchison road than' San Francisco, and the idea that the rates of this com pany can drive fpjm it whit it never had, or that the company can make rates from San Francisco on good3 which originate at Chicago, that wou'd enable Sihxr City men to buy in Sau Francisco and lay his goods down at Silver City a cheaply as ho buys in Chicago, and lay them down at the same point, is simply absurd. The above is Ihe whole matter in a nut-shell. Those interested had bet tor nnnder and reflect.

The assailant was President ol tho German Workingmen'a Club, it which Beerstetchor was n member. Both have been close political friends, but after the election of Beerstecher to the Railroad Con mission and the defoat of Fischer a candidate for Recorder at the last election, the lat ter became an eueim i f Reerstecher. Just before the shooting, Fischer had been importuning Reerstetcher to ob tain for him some official position. The ball struck Beerstecher iu the lelt breast, but it is hoped the ball is not mortal. At last accounts lie wa3 rest ing easily Later intone Fischer, who shot Railroad Commissioner Beerstecher last night, was arrested about noon and locked up. It is now stated that Beerstecher's wound is not dangerous An UiikIIkIi lew of tho IrUh. London. December 13. The Times' Dublin special suys: It is hardly correct to say that anarchy prevails in Ireland, for there is a distinct and potent government winch is rapidly superceding the Imperial Govern ment, and is obtaining the ascendency It rules with an Iron hand and promptitude which enlorces instant obetlience. Its code is clear, its ex ecutive resolute, its machinery com plete, and its action uniform. There is a government defacio and a govern ment de jure. The foremer is weild ing a power whsch Is felt and feared, and the latter is exibiling only pomp, but Hub- reality ot power. The for mer is a terror to well-doers, the lat te: no terror to evil-doers. The law of the Land League is becoming the law of the land, ahd while the law of the State is costly, and. to a large ex tent, superceded, the new law is ef fectively administered, as well as cheaply and conveniently.

The In. ter-Oceau's Washington special says: Owing- to its reference to a hostile sub committee, the bill to place Grant on the retired list is doubtful about getting through. it is noticeable that all the army of ficers who are retired on account advanced age go out "kicking," nnd many arc iudignant. Meigs will next be retired. There is a good deal of dissatisfac tion in the army that McDowell is not retired. It is whispered that Ord sent a congratulatory dispatch to Hancock upon his nomination, and that McDowell being a Republican has something to do with tins, but this is unfair.

The Prescott Democrat evidentiv due not feel well, but it should n t lacerate our feelings and cru-h us so cruelly for all that. We hope il did not mean this: "The Tucson Citizen has dropped the 4 adobe ' question, .nd is now de voting its massive Dram to the re moval of the capital.
