'This suit," said the rural jus tice, "is a bre;ich in the premises It appears to the court that he promised the widder to marry her and then run off with the poet mistress." "Yes, sir," said the widow, "that he did " weeping "Bailiff, collect $16 out o' the widder fer interruptin' the court Is the postmistress present?" "No sir; she's on her honey moon." "Git $20 wuth of stamps out o' her fer contempt. Are all the lawyers present?" "No sir two absent." "All right; 510 a piece for both, Ain?t you been drinkin', bailiff?" "Jest a dram, sir." "Five dollars an' costs fer you. The dignity o' this here court has got to be maintained!" Sheriff Tom Cunnigham of Stock ton, a brave and uniformly success ful officer, says this about news papers and newspaper reporters: "If people wish to see correct re ports they should see that the questions are answered frankly and honestly. I always treat reporters as gentlemen and ciMzens as fully interested in the public god as myself. I take them into my con fidence often, and I have yet to find a reporter who will betray my trust. If I want some matter kept quiet for time being they assist me, and I find fewer of mv official af fairs gel, into the papers than do those of officers who are abrupt in manner and try to throw the boys off the track. When they come after me 1 simply say "I give up," and when I have a piece of news I ive it to them correctly and it gen erally appears correctly." NOTICES My wife, Sarah V.

Ask your druggist for Swayne's Ointment. The following may be of interest to some of your readers, giving an account of one of the largest and most decisive Indian fights on the Pacific coast, writes Captain George A. Johnson to the San Diego Union It was between the United States troops stationed at Fort Mohave and Mohave Indians, which ended in the complete subjugation of the Indians and a lasting peace. Port Mohave is on the Colorado river, thirty-two miles above The Needles; was established in the winter of 1858-59, and garrisoned by the Sixth United States in fantry. The garrison consisted of three companies under command of Colonel Richard Garnett, famil iarly known in tbe army as "Dick" Garnett. The other officers were Major Louis Armstead, Lieutenant Marshall ("Sandy Marshall") and Dr. Milho, past surgeon. The treaty between the Mohaves and Colonel Hoffman, commanding the regiment, having just been signed, the colonel left for Cali fornia. The Mohaves, like all the river Indians, never respecting a treaty without first being thrashed, commenced depredations to test the disposition of the command. Having been successful in molest ing emigrants on several occasions, they finally concluded to surprise the post. I had transported the troops and supplies on the steamer of which I was pilot and captain, and had a Yuma Indian as a valet, very handy and useful, whom I named "Charlie Goohan." Doctor Milho took a fancy to him and I let him have him. Through the boy the Doctor found out that the Mohaves were meditating an attack on the post. They had all their warriors gathered at a point twelve miles below the post, on the east bank (same side as the fort), and most of their women and children moved to a place of safety, ieaving enough women in this camp to throw off suspicion, and for use in camp.. Col. Garnett was informed, and after satisfying himself of the truth of the report, he determined not to wait but make the attack. Having only about one hundred available men, he ordered Mai. Armstead with twenty-five to follow the river bottom to the point, and Lieut. Marshall with twenty-five to follow the mesa, the march to be made in the night. Both commands left after dark. Mai. Armstead ar rived before day and pitched his camp and at daybreak sent a ser geant and two men to reconnoiter. The sergeant soon found the en- camnment ot inuians and saw a couple of redskins running toward it. He fired a shot at one of them, which alarmed the Indians, and thev came out in a body. The ser geant hardly hid time to reach his camp before the Indians were swarming there. Maj. Armstead formed his men in fours, the front to fire when the rear were ready. They were armed with the im proved Springfield musket, Mag nard primer, enabling them to load and fire quite rapidly. The In dians were armed with knives and short clubs resembling the pestle of a mortar, and with bows and ar rows, They used tho latter for the purpose of getting to close quarters and making their fight a hand-to-hand one, which with their knives and clubs was not to be despised. The troops7 first twelve shots from the front brought a halt from the Indians. The next twelve stopped many of them, but there being about 300 Indians they crowded on, notwithstanding the steady firing and good aim. Just at this time Lieut. Marshall came on the double quick, and formed on the left flank of Armstead, ask ing him, "shall I give them a vol? ley?" "What are you loaded with?" "Buck and ball." "Give them a volley." This he did, and it had the effect of stopping the rush, and the In dians retired slowly. The squaws dragged the dead bodies out, made unearthy noises, pushed the bucks back and cursed them as cowards but to no avail. They left the Highest of all in Leavening Rcft&I Baking Powder Absolutely pube grounds to tho troops. The time of action occupied about two hours. Ninety-three Indians were left on the field. The Yumas, being friends of the Mohaves, made no report of this to the troops at- Yuma. I heard of it three days after the fight through Cocopahs, and gave the news to Major Thomas, then the command ing officer at Yuma. He at once ordered Lieutenant Warner with sixty men and two mounted howit zers aboard of my boat, not know ing the result of the battle. At the foot of the Mohavo valley, now known as The Needles, we met a guide who was in the fight, who told us the result, and that the braveB had come in and made an other treaty, which they have kept to. this dav. The arrival of the steamer with Lieutenant Warner and sixty men had its effect on the Indians While at Fort Mohave I had the opportunity to get the particulars of the fight from one of the scouts who was with Major Armstead's command The particulars have never been published, officers of the army never making any report other than to the commanding officers. The above mentioned officers of the regular army all filled promi nent places in either side of the rebellion, two and a half years after. Colonel Garnett was killed in Virginia, a general in the con federate army; Louis Armstead, commanding a brigade in Pickett'p division, was killed at Gettysburg; Lieutenant Marshall led a regiment from his native home, Elmira, N. Y., early in the war. Major Thomas of Yuma was the lamented Gen. George H. Thomas; Lieuten ant Warner is now a general and in command of Fort Hamilton, N. Y. George A. Johnson.

A daily paper that is pushing aggresiveiy to the Arizona news paper field is the Los Angeles Times. In the years back the San Francisco papers had almost a monopoly in this field for full wire service. Witnin two or three years past the Times has improved grati- fyingly, and now practically dis places its older rivals, due to being in Arizona a day ahead with the same telegraph news. Besides, the Times deserves well from this Ter ritory. They have a special Ari zona news service of their own, with correspondents in each county and a news Dureau in .Phoenix wtiere this matter is compiled and forwarded. A prominent feature of this correspondence is the pro gress and resources or the Tern- torj', including a monthly write-up of the features and improvements from month to month of each town of note in the Territory. This is laid attractively before the whole circulation field of the Times and is already resulting in benefit to Arizona. Piles! Piles! Itching Piles.

Latest U. S. Gov't Report 0E 3XILX.IOIV ACRES Or tiorernment Iand in tho Great Hcvy Sliver Y alloy, San Deigo County, on the line of San Diego Yuma and Phoenix Railroad. Few people are fully awaro that there lays hidden by desert sand hills on the east and north, and by the coast range of mountains on th& west, with the Mexican boundary line on the south, a rich valley of over one million acres of govern ment land, the soil of which is richer than that of the Nile, 'and every acre of which can and will, before many years, be irrigated by the great irrigation ditch which the Colorado River Irrigation Company propose to bring water in from the great Colorado riyer from a point above Yuma called "Pot Holes' The land is there. The water will be there also. The valley is called the great New River Valley, but it should be called the California Nile. The soil is a rich alluvial, and has been examined by experts who have pronounced it richer than that of the famous Egyptian valley that grows corn as if by magic. Four years ago over 48,000 head of cattle grazed oyer this New River "Valley. It must have been covered with a heavy growth of grass to have sustained them. In the center of the valley and near the boundary line are Fish anrj Mesquit lakes, which are quite large and filled with water which flows into them from the Colorado river. They are full of fish and hunting is also a sport which can be enjoyed in their vicinity. Large forests of mesquit trees exist there, some of which are from thirty to forty feet in height. It is the com ing land of milk and honey the California land of the lotus the place which will grow tropical fruits to profusion, as well as coffee, tobacco, rice, and such. Today this great tract of govern ment land is open to entry by all who will, but before many years it will be selling for hundreds of dol lars per acre. It illustrates the old saying that whatever can be had but for the taking, people don't rush after, but when it becomes valuable people will rush to buy it because then they "must have it." This great valley of government land lays on the route of the San Diego and Phoenix railroad, which will go through the center of it, and when it and the great water ditch are built to this great body of land,, then will San Diego county have within its borders another "Okla homa rush." To properly understand the size of this great body of irrigable land, will say that it is as large a tract as all of the western part of San Diego county, from the Cuyamaca mountains to the ocean and from the northern boundary line of the county to the Mexican boundary line. When 48,000 people inhabit the tract it will do much to make San Diego grow. Why not? San Diego World. The above tract of land lies across the Colorado- river and is only a few miles from this city and its settlement and cultivation means much for us as we are sure to get a great deal of trade from the settlers.
