This Pneo is from the Daily

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

That this, and all such occurrences
that havo been committed in this region,
are due to tho inefficiency and imbecility
of tho United States military authorities

This tells tho wholo story. The
inefficiency and imbeoility of the mili
tary authorities in Arizona are re
sponsible for nearly all the murders
and outrages committed by Indians
in that territory.

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

The hearing ot the application for a writ
of habeas corpus in the case of Wyutt and
Morgan Eirp and J. 11. Holliday was had
before Judge Lucas iu the District court
room at 10;15 o'clock yesterday morning.
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 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.

The return as issued by J. B. Smith wast
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

law to grant the writ, snd remanded the
applicants to the custody of the sheriff. .
