Notwithstanding the rapid strides with which this camp has gone for ward to success during tlio past year, everything seems to point to an eclipsing boom in 1882. The natu ral climatio advantages of our coun try are a prime mover against the northern camps, and capitalists and prospectors who can not operate to advantage in the snow-bound camps at tho Sierras and Rockies have come among us by tho hundred, and are making their presences felt by tho increase of nov and valuable finds and large investments. The mineral resources of this county are simply marvelous, but are only one of the factors that most certainly tend to the rapid advancement of the busi ness interests of Tombstone. Trib utary to our young city in all direc tions are vast mesas that would af ford pasturage for thousands upon thousunds of head of stock, rich val leys that only need irrigation to pro duce bountiful crops and sustain a large population. Within tho next few months the cold streams of the Huachucns will bo running through our streets. Following tho comple tion of this pipe line will bo the erection of mills at tho mines. In a few weeks at most grading is to bo commenced for the railroad from Contention to this city, There is every reason for encouragement in the outlook of the new year, and we predict for Tombstone and its ad jacent camps a progressive era of prosperity. A GRAVE 'CAHE. The report of the coroner's jury on the body of J. Gardner reflects anything but credit upon the sheriff of Cochise county. On the 11th inst. Gardner died in tho county hos pital from gun-shot wounds inflicted in a railroad camp on the Babar oomari, and on the 13th inst. a cor oner's jury was convened on the body. It appearing that the case was an aggravated one, that the de ceased had been deliberately pierced with four shots, and that the crime had been committed in tho presence of a number of witnesses, tho jury adjourned until yesterday in order to obtain witnesses and on tho 16th subpoenas were placed in tho hands of the sheriff for one Uan Lehay and another man known as Tex John son, two rival saloon keepers. Per suant to adjournment of eight days a coroner's jury met yesterday, and are forced, through the criminal negligence ot a ten-por-cent sheriff, to submit to tho public the report to be found in our local columns. It is a stench and lasting disgrace to our new and promising county that the ends of justice are thus thwarted by an officer who has an ample corps of deputies, who could, at least, make a return. The Tucson papers of the 20th contain accounts of the killing of a Mexican and American on two succeeding nights, and in this dere liction of duty a new impetus will probably bo given to the satanic work in tho iron-tie camp, but then, Cochise should be content, fordo we not have tho inestimable privilege of paying $120,000 taxation as well as 10 per cent thereon? And should not a lightning calculator whoso time and figures in the early days of Yavapai are unequalled in es timation of apportionment of repre sentation be a sufficient boon? Our blessings are many and wo should rejoice. AXOTIIEH ItAlUtOAD COM PAW. To the Itich Mines or the Kauta Carta rlnas, the Coal Fields and the Tim ber Iiand of the Korth. From the Citizen, Jannary 20. Another railroad project is on foot which promises to add to the import ance of Tucson and bring our city in direct communication with the rich mines of the Santa Catarinas, the ex tensive coal fields on the Deer Creek, and the timber lands in the north eastern portion of the territory. Dr. K. Kane, whose means and en terprise are always on the lookout for projects which tend to develop the great resources of the territory and profitably employ capital, is earnestly engaged in pushing this movement. The company which is to take this matter in hand propose to build a three-foot gauge road along the route now traveled by tho Santa Catarina stage line round the point of the mountains to the Oracle mine, where, in addition to the mines in the vicinity, ex-Mayor R. N. Leatherwood, who is also actively furthering the project, has a large ranch. From the Oracle camp the road will be run by tho most feasible route to the American Flag mine; from the American Flag to the camp of the Santa Catalina Copper Com pany; from that point, over the road already built by tho Santa Catarina Company to tho San Pedro valley; down the valley to tho Gila river; up the Gila to the mouth of Deer Creek, and from thence to the coal fields, where numerous coal fields have been secured by tho projectors of this enterprise. It is the further intention of ibis company, as we are informed, to con tinue the road until it reaches the Atlantic & Pacific. This lino will open up one of tho richest mineral sections in the terri tory pass through rich river valleys, bring tho coal fields into direct com munication with the mines which need their product to extract bullion, and also bring in the timber of tho northeast to supply the destitute sec tions of tho southwest. It will also, if constructed to tho Atlantic & Pacific, give us an eastern outlet which ' will benefit every miner's Interest of this city and tho country through which it i3 projected. We are informed that a number of our loading business men and capi talists are backing this scheme, and that eastern capital has already con sidered tho project favorably. SATAN'S GUEST. He Plays His Last Trump Be fore an Indignant Nation, Ami Breaks Down With a na tional Sob of Remorse. The Slaver of Gar-Held Adjusting Illfi Keck to DiHgmce Ilemp. Washington, Jan. 21. Upon en tering the court-room this morning Guiteau took a seat in the witness box, remarking as he laid out his paper: "I sit down because I can speak better, not that I am afraid of being shot. This shooting business is getting played out." At an intimation from Judge Cox the prisoner carefully arranged his glasses and with a flourish began to read from his manuscript. After roading the introduction, which con sumed several minutes, Guiteau took up a newspaper and proceeded to read to tho jury his published speech. His manner to the casual observer seemed completely self-possessed, as usual; but behind the ostcntatio' s affection of composure of feelings which were only held in control through undoubted strength of will, his excitement was betrayed by a slight hectic spot high up on each cheek of his .usually colorless face, and by the unusual deliberation with which he began and for some five minutes continued to speak. Whether the excitement was from the merely superficial effect upon his mind of the emotions naturally incident to such an occasion, or whether it pro ceeded trom the despair and more overpowering influence of the true realization of his position as an almost convicted murderer pleading for his life, it were difficult to divine. Whatever the original character of the feeling, it finally gained ascend ency ever his powers of control, and, as he reached that part of the speech which begins, "I have always served the Lord, and whether I live or dio" broke down completely, stopped, tried to choke down the rising lump in his throat, but found it impossible to keep back a genuino sab. He took out his handkerchief, and buried his face in it a few soconds, wipd his eyes, and with a determined effort started again. He seemed to recover his composure so quickly that some believed the whole effort was manu factured. Mrs. Scoville, his sister, however, thought otherwise. She was deeply affected and wept bit terly for some time. After this inci dent Guiteau continued to read, occa sionally adding brief comments upon the text. As he proceeded all appear ance of nervousness gradually wore off, and with the utmost composure and an unction that bordered upon the ludicrous the prisoner read on with attempts at overy conceivable form of oratorical, rhetorical and dramatic effect. His description of the taking off of the President was given with stirring effect. At one time, pausing, he leaned toward the jury and, emphasizing with his head and hands, said, with an attempt at great solemnity, "I toll you, gentle men, just as sure as there is a God in Heaven, if you harm a hair of my head this nation will go down in blood. You can put my body in tho grave, but there will be a day of reckoning." In the most natural manner imag inable, Guitean exclaimed again that tho reson he did not take Gar field away two weeks bpfore he did was because he had no authority by authority to remove Mr. Garfield. "Whon the time did come," ho said in an airy tone, "I removed him gently and gracefully. Tho jury may put my body in the ground, but my soul will go marching on. The slave-holders put John Brown's body in the ground, but his soul goes marching on." Then he chanted most weirdly one stanza of "John Brown's Body," closing with "Glory, glory, Hallelujah !" Guiteau concluded at 11:25, and upon an announcement by Corkhill that Judge Porter would be unable to speak to day, tho court adjourned till Monday. Logan on the tultcnn",Cnne. Chicago, Jan. 21. Senator Logan denies to a reporter that it was by his advice that Reed took part in the defense of Guiteau, as has been stated. He brushes away as incon sequential in a political sense the fact that h? said, when the shooting first occurred, and ha3 maintained on the witness stand, that Guiteau was in sane. Walfli from Wanhincton. Washingnon, Jan. 21. John F. Godfrey, of Los Angeles, was to-day admitted to practise in the Supreme court of the United Sjates. The government prosecution offi cers, who have been preparing infor mation in tho star route cases, have nearly completed their work, and are only awaiting the termination of tho Guiteau trial to bring tho matter be fore the criminal court. There was a largo attendance of ladies at the adjourned meeting of the select committee on tin rights of women to-day. Col. W. A. Cook and A. M. Gib son presented accounts to the de partment of justice for services ren dered so far in connection with the star route cases. The amount of each account is $75,000. 'J he commissioner of pensions rules that soldiers captured in the line of duty and imprisoned by the rebels, and not since heard from, are pre sumed to be dead jn tho line of duty. If sound when captured and disabled when discharged from prison, tho disability may be assumed to have occurred while they were in prison. The Jeannette Hurvivors.

Kailroad I'Iuiim and Projects. Boston, Jan. 21. A circular will be issued to-morrow from the office of the Atlantic & Pacific railroad, calling for 10,500.000 for the com pletion of the road upon such terms as will avoid the intervention of a construction company and secure the profits to the subscribers. Simul taneously the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe will issue a circular notify ing the stockholders of their right to subscribe. Huntington, of ihe Central Pacific, is negotiating with the Union Pacific for a joint construction of the line from Mohave, on the Southern Pacific railroad in California, northeast to a junction with the Utah Southern, a branch of the Union Pacific, in southwestern Utah. This would give the Union Pacific system a direct outlet to southern California, and, y way of the California Southern rail road, to the port of San Diego. Mhiureck. San Francisco, Jan. 20.

TICK! TICK! Not That It Is Given On Long Time, but Being the Itegu-lnr- Output, like Clock work, of the Bonanza Camp. Nothing Special to Iteport, Except tlie Constant Dronpln; ofNtampsj on the. Han I'edro and Swear-In- of the Teamsters at Overloaded Teams Tak ing the rlst to Grind. Regarding the bullion producers of the camp, there Is little new to relate this week. Constant progress in development and regular output of ore to mills is the case with all. One of the best indications of the coming permanent prosperity of the camp is constantly increasing cabins out among the knobs and gulches toward the San Pedro. Owners of valuable proper ties are beginning to realize that if they would reap the fortunes of mining they must take the risks, and that they can not dispose of holes in the ground at extra vagant Hgurw. In the light of the devel opment ol this camp up to the present, this is a guarantee of certain coming pro ducers, for instaaces are exceeding rate where prospects have not Improved under development. The most important event of the week was the purchase, on Monday last, of the Contact by Mr. Geo. Hearst from Messrs. King and Clark, who had it under bond from its owners, Mr. Richard Gird and the Sckieffelin brothers. The pur chase of this property is doubly important the entry of one of the shrewdest and most successful mining men of this coast, and the consequent opening up of a new section of the camp. This investment ol Mr. Hearst's w'11 have more influence on the capital of San Francisco, that seeks mining for investment, than the bullion record of our camp since its inception. That Mr. II. has made a good investment is evidenced by an ore dump of some 50 tons of handsome chloride taken out of the prospect shaft that reveals a strong ledge widening with depth, until at 65 feet the ledge width is seven feet. The C. II. Uassett. Some time since considerable interest was manifested in the C. II. Bassett claim, one of the oldest locations in the district, and a very high estimate placed on the value of the property, as evidenced in the press at that time, although it was then but a mere prospect. Subsequently the main shaft was sunk to a depth of-one hundred feet, and the fortunate owners seem to now have a property rivaling any of the out lying claims. Fallowing down one of the finest foot walls in camp, and the contig uous clay gouge, several bodies of high grade ore were cut at different depths and the hanging wall found, which requires considerable cross-cutting to reach at present depth, the whole bottom being highly mineralized and indicating the nearness of a heavy ore body. Several disinterested parties last spring claimed ability to trace the Contention west vein into the Bassett and were very positive in their assertions The property is on the belt running to the old Bronkow mine and has every evidence of being a true fissure vein.. Assays run from $70 to $400. We arc pleased to learn that there is a prospect of the Bassett belntrsoon incor poratcd and faithlully worked, as it has too much merit to be allowed to remain as it is. The Evening Star. The property ot this company is situ ated adjoining the Owl's Nest mine on the west, and runs almost due north. The eastern or southeastern end of the claim is coveted with rich float rock, and three veins have been discovered within the lim its of the Evening Star claim, two of which run in a northeast and southwest direction. Upon one ef these, near the eastern boun dary, a shaft has been funk to a depth of 45 feet, showing a well defined ledge right from the surface, and the other ledge trav crses the claim from south to north and is 12 feet wide, showing the same mineral as the Owl's nest ledge. Upon this ledge the present development is being done, and the shaft is to-day CO feet deep, sunk all in the ledge, which is getting more compact and more mineralized every foot as' the shaft goes down. From the present ap pearance this bids fair to be as good as its. neighbors. Tombstone 31. and 31. Co, In the west side shaft the 143 foot level is now in 12 feet, running north, and the 08 foot level 140 feet. From the meager workings of these prospect drillings about 30 tons ot ore is being shipped weekly, averaging from 150 to 100 ounces to the ton. Main shaft, Tough Nut, 300 level eostdriltin 120 uet, south drift 280 feet. Prosptcting drifts in both Tough Nut and Good Enough showing strong ore bodies. Combination shaft ore body strong and rich. Shipping 100 tons daily to mills. Grand Central. The main shaft has now reached a depth of sixty feet below the 500 level, being an advance of 30 feet for the week. Sloping is progressing favorably on the 100, 200 and 300 levels, while on the two lower levels cross cutting from the shaft con tinues. Usual daily output of 75 tons to the mill. Woronoeo (Han Diego) Mining: Co. The ore in the south drift, on the lower level, holds out well and the ledge is in creasing in width. Rich carbonates were struck this week in the drift running south from the upraise. The shaft isdown 324 feet. The ledge matter is heavily stained and of a nature which indicates close prox imity to an ore body. Contention Consolidated. No drifting is being done at present in the Contention, but cross cutting is pro pressing from the lowest levels ol the Flora Morrison to connect with the 500 and 000 foot levels of the Contention, to which stopingis at present confined. ' Mine look ing well. Ulrard. From the 200 level of the Tough Nut the Girard management arc sinking a winze (now down 80 feel) to connect with their workings, for better ventilation.

The.ore showing in this mine is excel lent, and the output to the mill is on die increase. Midnight Copper Group. Tarquols. Reports from this property continue lo improve. Most of the mineral in this dis trict is found in limestone formation, in much of which iron cap prevails. The former owners of this property year before last sank several shafts, one of which .has a depth ot 80 fett. In sinking on this shaft at a depth of 30 feet a 2Jffo-t ledge of what was at the time by thet.rospectors, supposed to be iron, was passed through, the ledge pitching into the hill at on angle ol 45 degrees. Since the strike of a three foot ledj-e of rich oxide of copper ore In another part of the claim, a test of this ore has been made thirty feet from the surface, result!, g in the discovery that there is a handsome showing at that depth of good oxide of copper, with just enough silicates, iron and limestone to make it run like water. The present owners are to be con gratulated. 4 CIIEAF ICE. . - A Company Organized, the Machinery Ordered, and Contracts Made with Consumers. Mr. V. K. Leveridge, to whom our city owes the credit for an ample supply of cheap water, upon leaving the service of the Tombstone Water, Mill and Lumber company, immediately took steps to again benefit the people of Tombstone, by the manufacture of and supply bt cheap ice. In this enterprise lie is backed up by several well known. San Francisco capi talists. The first step towards consummat ing his project was to secure the patronage of the heaviest consumers in the city. This was an easy matter, for his price was so libera! that even the least consumer would be saved one-half over former prices. Heretofore they have paid seven cents per pound, and hereafter Ihey will pay but three lo three and one-half cents per pound, the rate depending upon the amount con sumed. Forty.five of the chief consumers have signed contracts with Mr. Leveridge for a period of one year. It is the inten lion of Mr. Leveridge to supply families at the same rate that he docs other consum ers, which will be a great boon, as during the summer season in this warm climate ice become, almost a necessity in every household. Athiee-ton low pressure binary absorp tion machine has been ordered from II. Bioomfield, the San Franciso agent of the New York Ice Machine company, who own the French patents for this, the best machine manufactured. The substance used to produced congelation is, as its name implies, a compounJ of two sub staHces, it being ethylo-sulphurous-dioxide, an i does its 'work by absorption of the latent heat in the water. It freezes solid blocks eight inches thick in twenty-four hours, and the ice has all the solidity of that cut lrom lakes or rivers. The works will be built near the city, and will be commenced as soon as, Mr. Leveridge returns from San Francisco, which will be in about two weeks, as he leaves this morning for that place. While absent all the details of the company will be completed, and he will return with the boiler, engine and machine ready to set up. Next to bringing in water and reduc ing the price one half, this is the most im portant enterprise of a domestic nature that has been introduced into our city, and Mr. Leveridge is deserving the thanks of the entire community for tho energy he has displayed since he came among ns. When the works are set up the EpiTAni will give its. readers a more complete de tail description of the process, which is said to be not only the most complete for ice manufacture, but also for the preserva tion ot meats, ftuit and other perishable commodities, as it can be applied to large rooms in which such articles are stored. THE IVIXCHElSTKIt DIHTKICT, The First Ueod Xews Fully Verllled. The party consisting of George Hearst, of San Francisco, J. II. Jackson and George A. B. Berry, of this place, who left for the new discovery at the Point of Mountains, now known as the Winchester district, returned last evening a little after 7 o'clock. Our reporter did not have an opportunity of interviewing Mr. Heant after his return, but Messrs. Jackson and Berry did not escape the reportorial sagac ity. Mr. Jackson submitted a rough, but excellent sketch, of the principal ledge, showing three locations which all show rich mineral at various points. Mr. Jack son says that the showing is good for an undeveloped property, and the mines bid fair to be of great value. All concede the description given by Mr. Berry, after his first return, to have been perleclly accur ate. George declares 3Ir. Hearst to bo one of the most philosophic and pleasant trav. cling companions under adversity that he ever met. This is more than could be truthfully said 'of most millloniares. As a class they would except all the luxury of the Palace hotel on such a trip. It is a pleasure to note the favorable opinion of this party on the new find. We believe de velopment will show Cochise county to be richer in minerals than any other similar spot in the United States. ... , IllHtrlet Court. STII.WELfc JUDQK.

We the undersigned, the jury summoned by the coroner of Cochise county to invest igate as to the cause and .manner of death of the body which has been submildo our inspection, and who the personi8L after viewing the body and hearing suca tcstimoay as has been brought before us, find that his name was J. Gardner, age'l and nativity unknown; that he came to kis deatli in the county hospital of Cochise county, nt Tombstone, on the 11th day of January, A. D., 1882. from the cfiects of gun-shot wounds inflicted by an unknown party to this jury this jury having no evidence as to the matter. It further appears, from the evidence ot the coroner, that he issued subpoenas and placed them in the hands of the sheriff of Cochise county tor one Dan L ahy and Tex. Johnson, who keep saloons on the Babarcomari, and both of whom reside there Within a bhort distance ot the town, and that instructions were given to tho sheriff to procure such other witnesses as might give information to the coroner's jury of the cause of death of said Gardner;. . that said subpoenas were placed in the sheriff's hands five days prior to this date; that no return has been made upon said subpoenas by the sheriff, and no witnesses have appeared before us, and this jury is unable to render any fuller verdict than as above stited. And this jury believe, in this matter, the sheriff has been derelict in-' his duty to the people. Signed, J. T. Hutton, Harvey Wooley, C. J. McEennon, U. D. Goffhey, U. II.
