3PUBMCAN. FOURTH YEAR. PHOENIX, ARIZONA, SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 28, 1894. VOL. V. NO. 137. RJ RATTLED! That is the Condition of the Democrats. Congressional Committee in a Peck of Trouble. Election of Republicans In the South Conceded. Majority In Ohio May Be One Hundred Thou sand. News of a Most Discouraging Character Received at Democratic Head quarters. Special to The Republican, Washington, Oct. 27. There have been two voices here today from Ohio. Ex-Congressman Ben Lafevre fresh from the state which he has served so many years in congress, said to a Dem ocrat, who iB a personal friend, iu the greatest confidence: "If we work without interruption until electton day, and make no mistakes, ami are perfeel ly united, 1 believe that we shall be able to keep the Republican majority in Ohio down to 100,000." The information seemed to be too amusing to be kept, and although Be a Lafevre made the statement with the utmost earnestness, his Democratic friend could not restrain himself from takiDg others into his confidence, and with them the public. The statement of General Lafevre emphasizes in a vig orus way the gloomy view which many Ohio Democrats take of the probable result in their state. General Lafevre is a political friend and co-worker with Senator Brice. Another voiee from the west is that of "ex-Congressman Butterworth. He said : "I have given the month of Oc tober to the Republican congressional campaign committee, and am on the stump. I am traveling from the west to the east. I have been in Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, and am now going to New York. It seems to me that the drift is all one way. In Nebraska, where the Populists have been so- im portant a factor in politics, there is certain to be a general revulsion. I told the people from, -the stump that their endorsement of Populism was injuring the business interests and the. credit of the state. Some said to me that the information would not be wel come and would be resented. I found, on the contrary, that it was welcome, and the Democratic business men very generally agreed with me. I discovered that the Democratic business men of Nebraska and Kansas are generally going to vote the Republican ticket in order to rid their states of the incubus of Populism and to restore those rich states to the prosperity at home and the credit abroad which they deserve. The Democratic business men are sus picious of the Democratic pOidtielans because they have consented in the past to unions with the Populists and have become too much involved with them." Their entire drift is toward absolute Btate paternalism and Sjtate socialism. The consequence is that they have dis gusted the Democrats, who are busi ness men, and thousands of eommon sense Democrats who are not business men, and that these Democrats will do nothing to aid in this union. Iowa, it seems to me, will be overwhelmingly Republican." Day before yesterday was "Black Fridav" for the Democratic leaders in Washington. They have endeavered to keep a bold face to the enemy, and many of them fear that dangerous consequences may result from "swap ping horses in the middle of the stream." They are not generally dis posed to go to Republicans for guidance, but the wisest Democratic leaders pri-. yately admit that the warning words of Abraham Lincoln may be prophetic as to the action of the Democrats of NewYork. The leaders at Democratic headquart ers are particularly despondent for they know that there is little hope of obtaining enough members of the next house for the purpose of organisa tion if they do not control a majority of the delegation from New York. It is acknowledged also that the discord in New York is having a bad effect upon th congressional campaign in other states. The reports received this week from Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana and other western states are such as to confirm the opinion the man agers have formed. From the south comes the same re port. The Republicans will carry many of the southern districts. GEN. CIENFDEGOS IS FREE. No Grounds for the Decision Given by Graham.

Fire in a Hotel Filled With Guests. The Building Badly Ar ranged Shuts Off All Escape. Bodies Rescued Are Shining Skeletons and Grin ning Skulls. By the Associated Press. Seattle, Wash., Oct. 27. The bodies of sixteen persons. ten men, three women and three children burned to death in a West street house early this morning have been recovered. The building was a mere shell of wood covered with iron. It was a hotel, be ing near the railroad depot, and a cheap, reputable house, and was much patronized by the country people. The fire was undoubtedly caused by the ex plosion of a lamp in the kitchen in the rear of the house. At 2:45 the fire was under control and search for the bodies commenced, and by 4 o'clock fifteen had been re covered. The most of the bodies were charred beyond recognition, arms and legs being burned off and features hor ribly distorted. In a corner of a small inside room two charred and naked skeletons met the gaze. The fieeh was burned from each, and the first, that of a man with blackened stumps of arms, seemed to be upright, and clutching his waist was a skeleton of a woman ; the eyes were burned from the sockets of each. The bodies were taken to the morgue this morning in boxes end eanvass sacks. Some of them were so badly burned that only the wrappings held the limbs and trunk from falling asunder. The arrangement of the halls of the hotel made such a labrynth that in day time one unfamiliar with the place would have difficulty in finding his way out without several attempts, and when the halls were filled with smoke there was little chance for any one to grope his way out before being suffocated..

Anderson who is interested in the Deerfield coal mines on the line be tween Pinal and Graham counties came to town yesterday to meet officials of the north and south road with reference to the construction of the road in prox imity to the mines. None of the bffi- cialt were in the city and he returned last night. The mines are located about twentv miles south of San (Jarlos and fifty miles from Safford, the nearest railroad station. - Should the north and south road be built on what is known as the upper or' Colton route it would pass within twenty miles of the mines. The near est station would be Dudleyville. An derson wishes to get a branch from Dudleyville. The coal is semi-bituminous and the deposit is apparently ex haustless. A curious circumstance is that the coal lies in an inclinad vein like the ueual ore ledge, instead of a flat or horizontal vein. NO END OF GOLD. The Wonderful Mine at Fool's Canyon. A Mexican Tells a Startling Story of the Richness of the Late Find on the Hassayampa. The truth of the marvelous wealth of the Grijalva mine on the Hassayampa is coming out by degrees. The won derful ledge was discovered by accident less than three months ago and its dis covery lay among a lot of Mexicans. They were so jealous that they guarded approaches to it and men armed with shotguns stood off inquisitive visitors. It was only known that the face of the country had been washed away by a June flood and that wealth bidden per haps for centuries had been brought to the surface and that Fool's canon was likely to become famous. All the surrounding country waB im mediately located and most of the claims are supposed to be of great value. But about the first and pivotal one the Grijalva claim an air of mystery has hung. Great nug gets of virgin gold have been brought to the city, and the Grijalvaa have re ceived many tempting offers, one of $50,000 for the mine which some said was only a pocket. The owners re mained silent and unsatisfactory, but kept at work, and prospectors in the vi cinity kept guessing and locating. So much gvessing was done, though, that the fame of Fools canyon spread abroad and newspaper representatives of eastern and European papers resid ing in Phoenix were importuned for facts concerning the find. They had none to offer. It is true that visitors were by this time admitted to the claim, but only to a part of it. Last night Jose Peralta came to town and told a story about the mine which has never been told before. He has been working for the Grijalvas but has quit, but he says that mine at Fools' canyon is the richest mine ever discovered in America, the richest at any rate he has ever seen and he has seen all the big mines on the coast since the first one was discovered by white men. He says that they are working the ore from a four-foot ledge by means of three arastres and that no ore which does not run $150 a ton is handled. The production is $1,200 a week at an expense of $25. But $150 a ton lias really nothing to do with the richness of the ore. Peralta has no idea how rich it is but as an instance of its wealth of gold he relates his experi ence of a single day. In preparing ore for the arastre it is necessary to caush it by hand. In the course of crushing sometimes nuggets of gold are thrown out. In one day in this way he discovered nuggets which amounted to more than $200 saying nothing of the rest of the rich ore left for development by the arastre. There is, Peralta says, no apparent limit to the extent of that wonderful four foot ledge. A legal contest for the possession of ;he Grijalva claim is developing. An old prospector named Flacci has been brought to the surface and he says he was the first man on the ground after the HaBsayampa flood swept the debriB of centuries away. He says that he let Pedro Grijalva, the old man, into the secret and that night Grijalva got him drunk and bought Mb right for the piti ful sum of $200. He is going to try to find out if that drunken transaction "goes." , GILA ALL RIGHT. Big Vote for the Republi can Ticket Assured. Speeches by Murphy, Doran and Sampson.
