THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 4, 1895. Hardware. HARDWARE! A large stock of Building Hardware, Ranch Implements, Harness, Dash & Top Leather Edged Tools, Shears, Hay and Grain. k If. layer Washington Street, Qpp. City Hall 3E2EH MA COUNTY. Body of a Suicide Found !n the Colorado. Placer Mining a Profitable Industry. A New Cold Find at Mes qulta Lake. From the Yuma Times. C. P. Traylor is back from a visit to Mesquite Lake. He says placer miners in that section are doing well. He made. several quartz locations in that section and near the rich find. Joseph Carter, the Algodpnes cattle man, who was taken to Ensenada sev eral months ago by the Mexican officials and placed in jail, has been released and is home again. He will recover all his property from that government. J. L. Redondo showed us a very handsome specimen of gold bearing quartz one day this week. It came from the new find near Mesqnite Lake and is chock full of gold. The form ation is quartz and lime and resembles talc very much. The formation is something unknown hereabouts and our miners are unable to find a name for it. Dick Gird, the owner of the famous Chino (Cal). ranch and one of the min ers who left Tombstone in the dayB of her prosperity with about 750,000, to the good, was a passenger on Thursday mornings' express for his home at Chino. He was on his return from a visit to one of the largest and finest cattle ranches in Mexico. The cattle range is owned by Mr. Gird, ex-Governor Perkins of California and now senator from that state, and Mr. Gar rett. The range i 30 miles square. Judge Master son has returned from Lower California. He and his associ ates are interested in some fine onyx. We have seen the article, and experts say it equals the finest Oaxaca or Puebla onyx and that Algerine onyx which is the finest in the world, can only be compared to it. Charlie Co well always said he had a large deposit of it. He and Walter Millar went down to locate it, and the result is a good negotiation is now on the tapis with the largest marble house in Chicago. - Two men arrived here Saturday from a trip down the river. On a sandbar about 14 miles below this village they caw a dead body and on examining they recognized it as that of F. J. Brientenback, who committed suicide by jumping off the Colorado river bridge May 7th, 1895. They informed Justice Duke of their giewsome find on their arrival and he dispatched two men on the following day to bury the body of the unfortunate man. The water, where the remains were found, overflows the banks and covers a large area of land and the neareBt place where the body could de interred was a high bluff four miles farther down. The body was towed to the bluff and buried and a cross placed at his head. The bluff commands a fine view for miles around and the unknown suicide has secured in death a beautiful and wf i d resting place on the bank of the Ctlorado river. ALL DAY ARGUMENTS. The Real Fight in the Daggs Cases Begins. A Mountain of Demurrers Piled on Top of a Mountain of Indictments. All day yesterday was occupied in district court by arguments upon de murrers interposed to the indictments in the Daggs, Van Horn and McCabe embezzlement cases arising out of the Bank of Tempe failure. There are altogether nineteen indictments and the demurrers which were filed last Saturday include a variety of grounds all statutory. Principal among them are these, first the general one that the indictments do not set out facts sufficient to consti tute an offense against tbe law; second that two offenses are charged in the same indictment, that the indictments are defective in that they do not comply with the provisions of the code with respect to indictments, that they do not set out facts showing that the grand jury could take recognition of the offenses alleged. The argument in support of the de murrers was opened in a strong ad dress by H. C. Magne, and he was fol lowed during the day by Judge VVood ward and H. Z. Zuck. On the part of the prosecution arguments were made by District Attorney Millay, Assistant District Attorney Bennett and Judge Kibbey. Among the questions raised by the defense were these : that there had been a failure to allege criminal intent and also failure to allege facts constituting the purported trusts. Still another point raised was that the averments of the indictments did not preclude the assumption that the acts attempted to be charged in the indictments were lawfully or properly committed by the defendants. The matter was taken under advise ment until tomorrow morning. A TIMBER COUNTRY. Forest In Many Square Miles of Arizona. From the Nogales Vidette. Twenty thoueand square miles in Ari zona are covered with a heavy growth of timber. Tbe Mogollon forest alone covers over 12,000 square miles, a body of magnificent lumber land nearly as large as Maryland, yet almost untouch ed by the axe. There are also belts of oak and ash. Destructive Net Fishing. Ocean net fishing such as is to be op erated off Bay Shore, L. I., is a neaf equivalent to the pound-net fishing of the Chesapeake. The Chesapeake pound nets are tended twice a day by men who drive great flatboats with enormously long oars, anchor their craft beside the pound and scoop out the fish by the bushel. The business is regarded as peculiarly destructive to the fine game fish of the Chesapeake, for the pound netter takes whatever comes and spares nothing that is big enough to fry. The U. S.
