from SanrTOfe, thus .epi
tomizes tho growth and prosperity of
that territory. Ho says:
The progress of tho territory is
vory rapid and can bo best judged
by the itntnenso inoreaso in taxes
'nurt liconses. From Decern or l?th,
18S0, to November 18th, 1881, the
i amount of taxes and licenses paid
in tho several counties wcro as fol-

Fe, 628,7-19.90; Colfax, 20,58f:.5S,
Bernalillo, S13.GS8.25; Grant, i12,

$9,470.85; Socorro, $0,758.88; Valon
oia, $G,670.U; Taos, $4,550-15; Lin

and fifty thousand dollars and is

This is certainly a good showing
l'BVN for our sister territory. Jt reminds
us very forcibly, however, of two
things. Tho first is, that the people of
New Mexico must havo very hon
est and economical officers, and tho
second is that Cochise county's tax
roll is within a fraction of $30,000
as much as tho wliolo torritory of
New Mexico. Thif. is a subject for
our tax payeis to 'eflect upon. Co
chise county is in .superficial area the
smallest in Arizona, and is not, prob
ably, larger than any one of those
in Now Mexico. Our population, at
a rough estimate, does not exceed
10,000, as against 149,500 in Now
Mexico. Tho problem stands thus:
149,500 people are taxed $150,870.47
against 10,000 people who aro taxed
$120,000, with 10 per cent additional
for the privilege of paying over to
the tax collector that amount. Com
ment is unnecessary.
Goveknor Sheldon of New Mex
ico is a man that deserves great
credit for his unceasing exertions for
tho maintenance of peace and good
order within the boundaries of the
territory over which he was appoint
ed to rule. The Silver City Mining
Chronicle says of him:
Governor Sheldon is visiting the
southorn counties with the view of
consulting with sheriffs as to the best
way of puttirg down tho rustlers
along the Mexican bordur, and stop
ping the cattlo and horse stealing.
There is a very promising field for
the governor and sheriffs to operate
in. The sheriffs could and would
very soon do tho work themselves
were tliey allowed enough to pay
them actual expenses while engaged
in tho pursuit. As the law now
stands, they aro not allowed enough
to pay for tho tobacco they would
smoke (to say nothing about fluids)
whilo chasing these thieves. ,
"Were tho same energy displayed
by our governor we bog pardon, wo
havo no governor to consult with our
sheriffs, so we amend by saying that
would tho sheriffs of Pima, Pinal,
Graham and Cochise counties consult
among thomsclves, and co-operate
with the sheriffs of Now Mexico, they
could soon rid this country of the
cow-boy nuisance and earn tho ever
lasting gratitude of those who con
tribute to their support.
Silver City, Now Mexico, has
just passed through the trying ordeal
of a heated municipal election that
is, the people havo elected a mayor.
Wo havo always had considerable re
spect for our sister city, but since
tho returns of tho late election were
made public through the columns of
the Chronicle of that place, our re
spect has given rise to admiration.
The vote was most astounding. It
appears there were three candidates,
w!io polled respectively tho follow
ing votes:

Just think for a moment what this
enormous vote represents. First, of
course, it represents an Incorporated
city with all the paraphernalia of
councilman, marshal, police judge,
assessor, tax collector, treasurer and
city attorney. Second, it should rep
resent 440 uls, big and little, great
and small, estimating upon the
usual basis of five to the voter. The
fact is, bilver City, New Mexico,

His compr. (tensive and positive con

tho witness what ho meant by " irre

"Accessions of emo ion to such a de
gree as to produce conduct entirely
at variance with the individual's for

completely control the will-power,
would constitute irresistible im

Guiteau- " That's just my case,

Mrs. S"ovillo asked Dr. Fordyco

Tho answer was: "No, madam; he

Tho Crusade against l'olysniiiy.
Washington, Dec. 2. There was
laid on the desk of each congressman
this afternoon a handsomely engraved
card bearing on ono fold the presi
dent's message on polygamy, printed
in letters of gold, on tho other side,
in crimson, tho admission made by
George Q. Cannon of his position on
tho Mormon question. EacJt card is
inscribed " Respectfully dedicated to
tho Forty-seventh Congress by the
Women's National Ami -Polygamy
Society of Salt Lake City, Utah."
It is reported that some time be
fore his assassination, Presidont Gar
field held a long consultation with
Willotts in regard to a form of gov
ernment for Utah. At first the pres
idont was strongly in favor of re
mitting the government of that ter
ritory to the governor and judges of
tho Supremo court thereof; but after
a thorough discussion of the subject,
ho assented to tho views which are
embodied in the bill which Willetts
will offer to morrow. Willetts also
reintroduced three other bills which
were offered by him in tho Forty
sixth Congress and referred to the
judiciary committee, which never
made a report upon either. The first
relates to tho crime of bigamy and
proof thereof; tho second is to pro
vide for challenges and oaths to
jurors in trials for bigamy and polyg
amy in territories of the United
States. The purpose of the third
bill may bo inferred from its title,
which is, " A bill to further regulato
suffrage in the territories of the Uni

cations for office, and to provide reg
istration of votes in the territory of

Washington, Dec. 13. The in

the Senate calling for copies of cor
respondence between tho state de
partment and ministers of Peru and
Chili in relation to the affairs of
those governments, is said to be a
strike at Blaine from a stalwart
quarter. It is claimed that Blaiue
has only given such side of this cor
respondence as tends to relieve tho

From the Arizona Democrat.
From private sources wo under
stand that there will be a determined
effort made by tho people of Tucson
and vicinity to capture the new gov
ernor, and induce him to call an ex
tra session at tho commencement of
the coming year, the avowed pur
pose of which is to movo the capital
to Tucson. Another move is also on
foot, by theso samo parties, namely,
to induco Hon. Granville H. Oury, at
the incoming congress, to introduce
a bill to permanently locate the capi
tal of the territory at Tucson. Now
as to the first move, the people of the
north say to their friends of tho
south not to attempt to call an extra
session, as the object will certainly
be productive of no lasting result.
Tucson ought to rest satisfied wi',h
tho arbitrament of last "winter, s'le
was fairly beaten on the question.
Her delegates did their level best to
carry their points, but they wore
checkmated. As to the second move,
we think our friend Oury will "pause
and reflect" boforo he is mveig'ed
into promoting a bill to permanently
anchor tho capital at Tucson by con
gressional act. In commenting en
this matter, our people say that if the
capital must go, by the will of tho
people, expressed through the legis
lature, they aro in favor of Phenix
first and Tombstone next, never to
Tucson. This is the settled expressed
wish of the people of northern Ari
zona. Wo aro willing te enter into
a fair contest in this capital question

will not avail you in a matter of this

ttich Strike.
The San Pedro Mining company have
been developing their property near
the Vizma in a very quiet sort of a
way for the last six months. Those best
acquainted with the location had great
faith in its final outcome. The vein show
ed ricli hoin silver and Chloride near the
surface, but not in large quantities. It
continued down f'om the surface neatly
vertical and very regular, until a day or
two ago when it was intersected by a two
foot bedded or horizontal vein of lich
carbonate ore, showing the usual green
horn silver of this class of ore. Our re
porter did not learn the depth at which
this strike was made, but full particulars
will be obtained for our next repott. This
strike is important as being the westenr
most point where a rich body has been
found north of the canyada that divides
the not th trom the south mines. The Ep
itaph congratulates the shareholders in
the S.tu Pedro on their good fortune in
this find, which we trust will be as exten
stye as the other mines in the same vi
cinity. Water In Bilver Flake.
It is but a few days since we announced
the starting up afresh the Silver Flake
mine, and we had hoped to have included
it in our weekly reports; but the elements,
it seems, were against this desirable end
for we havo been informed by the superin
tendent that wrter has been struck at 52
let depth In such abundance that it can
not be contrulfetVby hand. At no other
point near Tombstone. tas water been
struck at so slight a deptlu In the Sub

Silver Flake is such that a less depth
might reasonably be exp'ected to develop
water, it being on Ike rolling mesa between
the Owl's Nest and Pickcm Up Station.
The ledge, it is said, was showing finely,
and the assays vvete showing a belter
class of ore with evety foot attained in
depth. Mr. Getrold, the superintendent,
will leave for S.in Francisco shortly, where
machinery will be obtained to continue
the work of development.

From Old lint.
From the Ultlzcn.
Mr. D. B. Rea, one of our pioneer ptos
pectors, returned on Saturday last from a
visit to tho copper mines in the Santa Cat
alina copper belt, Old Hat district. Among
the mines he visited were the Apache, St.
Nicholas and Midas, tcceutly putchased
by Dr. Kane, and incoi pointed by a strong
New Yotk company. Active work has
begun, and the developments made aheadv
warrant the putting up of a furnace, which
the company propose doing at an early
date. The superintendent is W. B. Scott,
lately superintendent of the Huachuca M.
nrjjl M. Co., and the choice of the new
company in this respect is certainly a
wise and fottunate olc. These arc int.
meuse copper ledges; the detached float
on the mountain sides alone is estimated
at the very lowest calculation to be at least
a thousand tons of high grade copper ore.
TIiq ledge upon the Apache lias been cut
and sunk upon lo a depth of fifty feet, ex
posing ore matter from six to twenty feet
in width. The character of the ore is red
oxide and gieeu carbonate, and yields
readily to the simple smelting process.
The uottheast extension of this mine, the
Comanche, was sold on Friday last to Ed.
Retlly of Copper Queen fame, the consid
eration being $20,000. The mine i said
to be of equal merit with the Apache, the
work thus far showing the same grade and
character of ore, and also the same great
abundance along its entiro ledge. The
claims on the west of the Apache, namely,
the Mermaid, Lotd Byron, Santa Claus,
Little Buttercup, and Everlasting, owned
by Moye Wicks & Co., show a continuous
vein from the first-named mines through
their entire length, the same character
and grade of ore, breaking out at intervals
in deposits equal to the Apache. An as
say made on Saturday from these mines
showed 83.7 per cent copper, and $37.70
silver ; total$103.7C erton. These speci
mens were an average from the Santa
Claus mine, taken from across the ledge
fifteen feet in width. Each ot these groups
of claims has a splendid spring of pure
water sufficient to run a number of water
jacket furnaces. Xattne has especially
favored these mines, as the springs are so
located that the ote can be dumped from
any claim right to its tespective spring.

b. F. Osbiston passed the line to

Fair and Mackay.
We are pleased to learn this start

that .Mr., we beg his pardon, Col.
Osbiston, has passed the line, and we
are delighted to learn that Messrs.
Mackay and Fa;r are inaugurating
the wise policy of letting everybody
know the private business of the firm.
Col. Osbiston is a good man to look
for mines. He never found a mine,
to bo sure, but that does not impair
his reputation as a looker. But for
our prejudice against slang we should
say he is tho boss Ioolcr.

Dead human bodies, treated before decomposi

There Is no change In the slightest particular In
the appearance of any article thus preserved, and
no trace of any forclzn or unnatural odor or taste.
The process Is so simple that a child can oper
