S SSSJ Edition. This Pneo is from the Daily of Tuesday. Feb. 14. JjKT the WORK OF o ox. RKFOIt.1I Mayor Carr, backed up by the oity counoil, has started in upon a com prehensive system of reform in rela y tion to tho finanoes of tho corpora tion, which if they persist in carrying out in detail "will bo a great relief to the ovcrburdonod tax-payers. That they have and will receive strong opposition from those drawing pay from tho publio treasury is not at all j .trance, nor unexpected. This faot, hqwevor, should not deter them from a straightforward and persistent ef fort to effeot tho relief thoy stand pledged to tho people to bring about. They propose to make alf tho offices salaried, and whatever fees thore.may now be attaohed to the various posi tion?, either abolish them or cover them into the treasury. So far as the completion of tho licenses and kindredrsourcesof revenuo has pro gressed, it appears that it amounts to not less than $10,000 per year, which, , .added to property taxes, swells tho total revenue of the city to $40,000. Wo think that these figures will startle the tax-pa3-ers, and convince them that any reasonable rofonn in this direction is most desirable and should bo encouraged. It is proposed to combine in one functionary tho offices of license col lector, streot commissioner, hoalth officer and pound keeper, paying him for his services a reasonable salary and doing away with the fees. That tl"9 wjll bo a roliof to those subjeot I to license will bo seen by this f' It is reported upon gotyl ' ct: that a gentlemixt, " athority in DPoombor.w' opened a. shop lor tho fr j subject to a license whioh actional quarter within a- .e commenced business in tho forty-fivo cents.

Since tho Florence office of the Silver King and Florence telegraph company opened for business, there has been an active demand for stock, but the- holders' are not desirous of selling, in fact will not sell at all. The par value of tho shares is $10, and parties offered as high as $13.50 per share for stock this week, but could find no takers. This is re markable, considering thut tho line is not yot completed, The Florence and Butte road was completed Saturday, with the excep tion of a little light work on this end of the line. Teams have commenced the work of hauling the lumber from Casa Grando to Butte, for the Pinal Consolidated company's buildings, and the work of the latter will be pushed to completion now as fast as possible. The expense of building the rod from here to Butto goes a a little over threo thousand dollars. A party of Apache-Yuma Indians were in town this week on their way to the Pima village, for the purpose of buying ponies. That tribe has a now way of replenishing their purses now.

Iteport that George Hearst and Two Other Americans were Killed In So nora. Some time yesterday, a Mexican was reported to have come into town with his riding animal all in a lather, bearing the alarming intelligence that Geo. Hearst and two other Americans had been killed by Indians, at r near Basochuca, on the So nora river. The news immediately spread and caused great excitement for a short time. When C. W. Pinkham, who runs the Sonora stage, came into town he re ported having passed Basochuca Friday about noon, when all was serene, and no signs nor report of Indians. He met Mr. Berry between Chinapa and Arizpe, going to the latter place, and reported Mr. Hearst all right. . Mr. Thorndike and son came in from the custom house at San Pedro yesterday, leaving there in the morning, and no word had been received up to their leaving of any massacre. Later in the day it was reported that a German had come into town confirming the news. An Epitaph reporter scoured the town to find him to authenticate the startling tale. At last it was learned that he had bis horse at the West End corral, so the reporter went down there and learned that a man by the name of Hughes came in from So nora on Sunday, and had his horse there, but that he brought no such news; that Hug! es Ietl Arizpe On Sunday or Monday of last week, which was four or Ave days earlier than Mr. Pinkham left. There is probably no truth in the report of Mr. Hearst a'ud party, or any other party, hav ing been murdered by the Indians at or near Basochuca. It is well known that not less than 1000 soldiers arc pursuing the Indians from the Bacuachi side ol the mountains toward the Sierra Madres. It would be a sad blow, however, should the news be confirmed ; but in the light of all the fucts' the Ermrn takes the hopeful view of the case, and will not concede it possibly true until the stubborn truth compels otherwise. tiUCAt.

Mr. Herrine, the counsel for the defense, asked for the wiit of return that it might be examined, and said writ was produced from the deputy.sherilf. Mr. Robinson, in behalf of the prosccu tion, submitted to the court the question that the judge had been a witness in a for mcr examination .of the same case( and hence disqualified to act in the matter. The court said, while it would be a plea sant task to avoid hearing the question now to be determined, yet he considered that should he decide not to hear the case before him it would be neglecting an im portant duty. Hence the grounds of the, question wrc not considered well taken by the court. The counsel for the defense presented a denial that the officer who had issued the warrant for the arrest of the parties above named was a justice of the peace, and as serting that said justice had never been elected to that office. Mr. Robinson oojected to the denial, ar guing that a justice of the peace did not need to be elected so long as he had a right to his office from other authority, and moved that it be stricken out. After further discussion it was acceded by both counsel that J. B. Smith was ap pointed by the board of supervisors and held his authority from them. Mr. Herring argued that the appointing of justices of the peace was provided for by tho legislature, aud consequently the ap pointment by the board was illegal. Ben Goodrich, Es,q., for the prosecution, held that the law quoted by the defense was nst good, a3 a later net passed repeal ed it, and read sections specifying the ap pointment of justices of the peace in an other manner, or by the board of supervi sors. The defense consfdered that the two sec tions read must bo considered together, hence both were in lull force. The court, however, sustained the return on the giound that the appointment of said justice of the peace was legal accord, ing to law, as the act read by the defense was nood only so tar as it did not confiiet. with the latter act. The return as issued by J. B. Smith wast read. It was held by the defense that these: same gentlemen had been once acquitted? by a jury and iu a legal court; that all the evidence had been before that jury.; that their lives were now to bo imperiled; that this pioceedlng was a secret business and hence that the rearrest was unwarranted. The court decided that as the warrant did not show these matters once to have been settleJ. and that as it called for au examination before the officer who issued the warrant, for a crime for which they had apparently never been called to ac count, notwithstanding his own personal desire to grant relief to tiie gentlemen, still he had no right to o behind the return and to interfere in the matter, as it was altogethei out of his'jurisdiclion; he was sorry that the hardship could not b avoid. ed, but considered it would be violating a law to grant the writ, snd remanded the applicants to the custody of the sheriff. .
