A Quiet Weak Usual Amount of Work Done. Will the Illnes Go Down! This has been lb ueston of paramount interest since the-iyery of the camp, and still remains sonbtwlthstanding the fact that the 600-foot level has been opened out in the Grand Central and shows a strong and well defined ledge, with every indi cation of permanence and continuity down to unfathomablo, depths. It the origin of the Contention Assure, upon wliK the Grand Central is located, is ,' eous origin, as asserted by Prof. B ,i in his paper on tho "Geology ot T Jibstonc," read before the American Institute of Mining Engineers, then there can be no question of the lode going down, and that, too, with a probable increase in size and strength. Thus far the developments in Grand Central substantiate this view of tho case, the ledge, so far developed on the COO level, being stronger than at points nearer the surface. The question of the continuation of the ledge downwards being settled in the af firmative, the next question is us to its probable ore bearing qualities. For a so lutlon of this last and equally vital point, we are compelled to draw our conclusions from analogy. Looking over the broad field of mining, tho world over, we find that where true fissures hnve been sub ject to extensive operations the ore has been found to make with the ledgo, in va riable quantities it is true, to the utmost depths attained upon them., Another fact to be taken into account is tho, manner of occurrence of ore, laterally within these fissures. It is a well known fact that the ipaying bodlei arc lo'ind in chimneys or .chutes of ore of variable lengths, often separated by long intervals of barren .ground. Thus, too, in depth these ore -bodies are found to have a limit succeeded liy barren vein matter. Take the Corn stock as an Illustration. The surface bo. nanzas commenced upon the north with tho Ophir, thence going south came tho Gould & Curry, Cbollar and Gold Hill mines. Tho deep bonanzas wero Califor nia, Consolidated Virginia, Savage, Ilalc & Norcross and Belcher, being sand wiched In between the lesser surface de posits. That a similar condition of oc currence of the bonanzas in the Conten tion fissure will bp found wo have every reason to believe, and that tho utmost limit of production will bo reached before a depth of l,.r00 to 2,000 feet is attained is hardly probable. What may be found bo. low thoa'e points nothing but persist ent work will tell. Urnnd Central. The water problem, in the new shaft, re mains unsolved notwithstanding two weeks have, passed sinee the first strike was rmade. On Thursday last a dill-hole in the bottom ot the shaft, brought forth a strong stream that indicated n near ap proach to tho fountain head. The hole was immediately plugged up and the work of timbering the shaft resumed in order that when the shots were fired, if a strong flow should result, no damage by caving in of the shaly sides f the shaft would ensue. The timbering was finished last evening, and the plug withdrawn, when it was tound that the flow of water liad considerably abated. Another deep hole had been put down in hard rock without any flow of water whatever, therefore. It was tho opinion of the foreman that the hole of Thursday had merely tapped a vein of no great extent. Pieparatlons have been made for handling the water until tho flow shall equal several thousand gallons lu tho twenty-four hours, after which a pump will have to be put in. The drift north and south along the ledge, on the GOO level, are in abmit 110 feet each, and the ledge is steadily improving. Heretofore the ore has btcn bunchy in the mass of vein matter, whereas, now it is becoming more uniform and of n much belter grade. A must icmaikuble featuieUthe disappear ance of silver and the largo yield of gold in the ore; the assays, for several days, showing hardly a trace of tho former metal and giving a range bttween $80.25 and $115.75 per ton gold. A bonanza of this kind of ore will make Grand Central more famous than it has been with its ar gentiferous record of tho past. On the 300 level an upraise has been started from tho ore body, heretofore described, and a winze is to be sunk from near the same point. There li no mateiiul change to re port in this part of tho mine. Slopes look well and continuo to yield their accus tomedJOO tons per day. Tombstone -II. & 31. Co. The connection between tho incline air shaft and the Combination mine has been perfected, and a platform at the mouth ot the platform is being built upon which to stand the holBting engine that is to do the work at this point. Work in this mine will be. pushed with vigor hereafter. On the 200 level Tough Nut they have reached a point opposite the winze from the 200, and are now driving a crosscut to connect with it. Tho other mines of the company nro going along with their accustomed de velopment and output of ore. The mills urc runninc smooth and up to their full capacity, and will give a good return In bullion for the month. Ulrnrd. Ilavo made connection between the 150 and 200 levels, and are shoving the cross cut ahead to get into the ore at this point. Will commence sloping on tho 150 level on Monday. On the 279 have commenced stoplng. The vein shows 4 feet of 'good ore. -Arc putting in chutes between the 200 and 279 levels, through which to send the ore down from the 200 level. The in- cllno from the 329 foot level is down GQj, feet, all tho way In good ore, ana it Isiook ing particularly fine in the bottom. Will commence ruunlng the mill upon ore fresh from tho' slopes next week. Have con nected the supply tanks for the hoisting works with the two 50,000 gallon tanks on the hill in the rear of the mill. Every thing about tho mine, and the mill is run ning like clockwork. The tailing reser voir is a noticeable feature, and is the most complete we ever saw. Situated in tl steep gulch below the mill and hoisting works,vwhere the gulch has been darned with a solid wall lor about 10 feet high. 1 hey have now commenced to run the waste from the mine into the gulch below the dam, which process will be continued until the dam reaches the level of the dump at the mine, which will give a total depth of at least 40 fret from the bottom of the gulch, making a reservoir sufficient to hold the accumulation of years. Contention Consolidated. The 5 lora Morrison shalt is now down to the 600 foot level of the Contention old works, and arc now opening out the sta tion. As soon as the station is completed a crosa-cut will be run under the slopes above and prospecting work will be push ed both north and south on the ledge, when important developments may be looked for. The cross-cut from the 500 station has been connected with the 500 level and they are now driving south to connect with the Grand Central. The ore remains about the same grade as for the last three weeks. The March dividend of 25 cents per share has been paid and others will follow in regular order for a long period, there now being ore developed above the COO foot level to insure them Tor over a year to come. The accumulation of second class ore upon the dump is be coming u matter ot serious consideration und will hasten the erection of the 40 stamp mill at the mlue, when the bullion output will be something remarkable. Woronoeo (San Diego) Mining Co. The drifts on the 350 fool level are being run night and day. Tke north drift is now in 37 feet, and shows a rich vein of carbonates on the foot wall, of the same quality as those those found in the north drift on the 2CG foot level; thus proving the existence of a large body of ore be tween the two levels. Now sacking ore from the slope on the 2GG foot level. The eouih drift on the lower level is being driven as rapidly as possible to catch the same body of mineral that was found on the level above. 4 North Point. Shaft down 95 feet and substantially tim bered. A crosscut to the cast is being run through low grade ore of the same char acteristics as the Contention, upon which lode, there is no doubt, this mine is locat ed. The crosscut is in about li feet, and not through the vein. Work will be con tlnued until the east wall is reached. The owners know that they are not deep enough to get largo bodies of rich ore, but they want to sec the stratification of the ledge in order to determine on the future work ings of the mine. Lima Consolidated. In the bottom of the shaft they have six inches of very rich ore. The shaft has passed through, the lime capping and they are now in perphyry for about 20 feel, the vein continuing right down at an angle of hbout 45 degrees to the west, or into the mountain. Are running south at 70 feet, where they have a vein 3 feet wide of good ore. Ingersoll. The annual meeting was held in San Francisco on the 22d instant, but as yet we have not learned who the new board of directors are. Mr. II. Solomon, of this city, holds the controlling interest of the stock, which we take as a feunrantee that some more active work will soon be inau gurated at the mine. The usual develop ment work has been done the last week, with no inateiial change to report. Old tiuard. Shaft down 190 feet with no material change since last report. North drltt in 85 feet, where it has been crosscut, showing the ledge to be 8 feet wide with 4 feet of good mineral. An assav of solid, heavv carbonate, ou the 22d, gaye silver $2309.81 ; told $200.93; total $2510.74 per ton. A sample that came out yesterday is easily double tho value of that given. They sacked about 300 pounds of this uch stuff yesterday. Work in the south drift has been bU9pended for the last week pending tho extension of the shaft to a point to start another level. 11 lack Top. Work is being done on the Black Top, one of a group of mines back of the Stone wall and Prompter, belonging to eastern parties, and the developments thus far are very encouraging. Decomposed iron, well oxidized and mixed with fine quartz is found at thirty feet, the present depth, and some mineral of a different character, indi cating something better a little farther down. The property is well located and is judiciously worked. We hope to be soou able to chronicle another good thing for the camp. IVlclua Consolidated. The shaft continues on down. The cross-cut, from the 400-foot level to the west, is in 30 feet. Winze, from the 100 level, is down 100 feet, and the west cross cut, from the same is about 50 feet. Stopes look well and yield their usual amount of ore. The Yrcka shaft is down 80 feet in good working ground. COKO.YKK'H IXO.UK8T Upon tlio nods' of Florentlno Cruz. the Murdered Halt-Breed. At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon the fol lowing jury sat upon the body of Floren tine Cruz, the half-breed Indian who' was found dead near Pete Spence's wood 'ranch, hi the South pass of the Dragoons, on Thursday, the bpdy having been brought to town and deposited at Ritter's undertaking rooms: Peter Tully, M. Gray, C. B. No'e, John M. Lee, John Eingsman, Wells Colby, T. J. Blackwood, J. It. Adams, M. II. Smith, A. C. Bilicke, Charles Brickwedel and S. M. Barrow. - DR. O. E. O.OODKELM1Y7 was the first witness examined, who testi fied as follows with regard to the wounds: I found four wounds on the body. I com menced the examination at his head -and followed down. The first shot entered at tho right temple penetrating the brain; the second produced a slight flesh wound In the right shoulder; the third entered on the right side of the body, near the liver, and made its exit to tho right of the spine, about five or six inches to the right. The fourth struck in the left thigh, and made its exit about seven or eight inches above the point of entry. In my ooinion, two of the wounds, those in the head and right side, were sufficient to cause death. The wound in the thigh was probably pro duced when he was running or after he had fallen. He was probably lying on the ground. In my opinion he was lying on the ground, alter the wounds in the upper part of the body had been received. In my opinion, the wound in the thigh was rescived after he was dead. I form that opinion from the absence of blood around the wound. THEODORE B. JCDAH, tho young man who discovered the body, and who was interviewed by an Epitaph reporter on Thursday, next testified: lam a resident of Tombstone; am a teamster by occupation. I have seen the body of 'the Mexican or Indian, and recognize it as that of Florentlno. Last Wednesday we were in camp in the South Pass of the Dragoon Mountains. There wero five of us, Sam Williams, Ramon Acosto, Florentl no, a Mexican or half breed whose name I do not know, and myself. At about 11 or 12 o'clock Williams started out on horse back to search for some mules which had strayed from our camp. Inside of an hour Florentlno started out on foof for the same purpose. He had been gone hut a few minutes while I was lying in the shade waiting for them to come back, when I looked up and saw Wyatt Earp coming over the hill on horseback, followed by live men. They were Warren Earp, Sherman McMastcrs, Doc Holliday, Texas Jack and a party whom -I- have heard was named Johnson. They asked which way tho road went, but I heard no answer. I was some distance away, and they had not seen mo. They stood talking among themselves. I then called and asked if they 'had seen any mules that morning, und McMasters an swered that he had seen some near by. He then rode up to Wyatt Earp an J said something and the whole party wheeled around and came over to where I was. Wyatt Earp saw me and immediately ask ed where Pete Spencewas. I answered that I had left Pete Spehce in town. He then asked when 1 had left town, and I replied that I had left town about nine o'clock in the morning. Ho also asked after Hank, a half-breed, and I told him that he wasn't there. He then asked how many men there were at the camp. I told him exactly bow mauy there wcte, and what they were doing, and mentioned that two of the men were out in the hills in search of strayed a..lmals. He asked me when Pete Spence would be out in the camp again. lie also asked me my name, and wanted to know if I was not a friend of Pete Spence's and also of Frank Stil well, to which question I answered that I was. He then turned to the crowd and asked them if they had seen any horses down there with saddles on. They theu went off, and passed out of my sight to ward the mam road leaning to Tombstone. I then went up to the fire and spoke to a Mexican but a few seconds, and told him to come with me, and started up the hill to see if I could get a sight of the Earps. We had not gone twenty feet before wi heard shooting, and turned to see where it came from, but could not ascertain. We walked up the hill further and saw the party on the other side of the road, on top of the hill. We stood there watching them and two or three got off of their horses and were there two or three min utes. They then came down the hill very leisurely to the road and returned in the direction of the camp. They proceeded but a snort distance and turned around again. They then went along the road until it makes a sharp turn, and kept on in the same direction, easterly, passing into the hills. We then went tuck to camp and worked there until evening. We then went out in search of Fiorentiao, and went to where I thought the shooting hud occurred. The Mexican, Ramon Acosto, who was with me, maintained that Florcntino had been killed. We hunted around the gulches and among the hills for quite a while, but found nothing but the tracks of one horse, which was led by a man. The tracks led us to the road on the hill that goes up to i lie summit oi ine uiu on wnicn i saw Hit Earp parly. There we lost track of it, on account ot' its running into the tracks made by the party. We theu went back to camp and stayed there all night. Next morniug I went to the top of the hill where 1 6.tw tho Earp party alter the shooting, and looking round discovered the body of Florcntino lying under the shade of a tree, a few feet away from the tracks made by the Earp party. He was lying face downwards, with his right arm resting under his head, and his coat was placed over his legs. After looking at the body for a few moments, I picked: up his hat and went back to the team. I un hitched the mules, and leaving the hat in tho wagon, took one of the mules, and went to the camp to get a saddle. On my way down I met Ramon Acosto, and told him I had found the body of Florcntino, and after saddling the mule I came into town, forgetting the hat. When I urrived in town I reported tho circumstances to the coroner. The body was lying at the place where I first saw the Earp party after hearing the shooting. I had seen no other party that day. I accompanied tho man who went out to bring in the body; went under the direction of the coroner. I did not see Williams after he went out in search of the animals; Williams always went armed; he carried a pistol. I know of no difficulty between Williams and Florentlno. The trail of a horse led by a man was struck about fifty yards from where we found the dead body. There were tensor twelve shots fired. I worked about three and a half hours after the shooting before I went out in search of Florentlno. I did not observe the Earn nartr on tho hill before the shooting. I have seen Williams since the shooting. He is at present in town. Williams was armed and mounted at the time he left camp. He carried a pistol, 45 calibre. The pistol belonged to Pete Spence. Florentlno went in tho same direction as Williams; Williams did not return to camp; did not see him again until I saw him in town; Williams was out in camp last Saturday evening; I was not in town last Satur day. I think, but am not sure, that Florcntino was in town last Saturday even ing; I know that Williams was not in town last Saturday evening; Williams and I stopped at an old cabin from Friday evening until Sunday morning. Florentino, Ramon Acosto, Williams, a .Mexican and myself were out at the Chrnp. I am a friend ot Pete Spence's. The tracks seen around the body were about eight feet from the body. He was not armed when he left the camp. Williams told me that when he heard the shots he became alarmed and came into town. I have been team ing for about a month. I have not seen any Indian tracks in that vicinity. I know Ike Clanton, Fin Clanton and John Ringo; did not see them that day. Ramon Acosto was not out of the camp a)one after the shooting. I was not in a position to see the shooting at the time it occurred; I did not see the shooting. The shooting did not last over twenty sec onds, tho last being held. The shots were one after another in quick succession; the last shot was held back about eight seconds after the others. Williams had been out to the camp about three weeks or a month. I have noticed that he .was somewhat afraid of an attack by Indians; we always went prepared for an attack. I have heard that Williams was Pete Spence's brother; do not know it to be a fact. I only know hearsay. I am positive that 1 did not hear any other shots that day. At the conclusion of Judah's testimony, the inquest was adjourned to meet to-day at 2 o'clock. To-Day's Proceedings. Bam Williams testified to bearing shots when on his way to Tombstone, and about one railothis side of Spence's wood ranch. Did not fee Florintino, and knew nothing of the killing except hearing the shots. Simon Acosta testified that he was at South pass last Wednesday. Florintino went out after the mules. Just after he left, eight mounted men rode into camp; knew two of them by sight, but not by name. They asked whose camp it was and were told it was Spence's. Florin tino was about two or three hundred yards from where he was when he saw this party commence firing at Florentlno, who was going up the bill and they were firing at him. He was sure Floren tine had been killed; could see the firing from the camp. 'Judah was recalled; said that it was possible for Acusto to have seen the.firlng and he not. The jury then at 4:J0 adjourned until Monday. LOCAL SPL1KTKBS. There was no business in the police court to-day. All sorts of weather to-day rain, clouds, sunshine and bright blue sky. The ball " tossem " continue practicing quite faithfully, and will play a match game directly. Elsewhere is an item as to what the Tombstone club reads. It is to be hoped they will not get to reading the backs of the cards. Do not forget that to-morrow will be the Sabbath. Close up the store or other place of business and attend church; there will be excellent services at all of them. A stock of first quality writing paper of all kinds has just been received from the East at Smith & Dyar's bookstore. They have enlarged their establishment and in tend to fill it with goods. The public pound has been located by the health officer at the corner of First and Tough Nut streets. A fence is being erected around the place, and it will be ready for business in a few days. The corner of Allen and Fifth streets seems to be the favorite resort for sterect venders and funny men with patent ma chines. A striking apparatus has drawn the crowd for the past few days and now there is a lifting machine on the corner. Uniform Rank Knights of Pythias meet this evening at the court house at 7 o'clock sharp, to pertect themselves in the movements lor the funeral service to morrow. A full and prompt attendance is required. The funeral of the late W. C. Bennett will take place to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, under the auspices of the Knight's of Pythias. Members of the uniform rank will appear iu full parade dress. The procession will form at Schieffclin hall, and from there accompany the re mains to the grave. . , LOCAL PKIWOXALS. Mrs. George W. Stewart returned last night from a business trip to the East. The ladies may expect to find lots of pretty things at Mrs. Stewart's millenary establishment now. T, J. Hardy, a brother of the merchants in Bisbce by that name, came up from Tucson by to-day's coach und i- at the Cosmopolitan. Francis E. Mirtdletun U registered at the Russ House. Mr. Elliott Jcues, of Fort Huachuca, is stopping at Brown's. Stephen Rickard arrived in the city from Millville to-day and has taken rooms at Brown's hotel. Mr. Neil Boyle, superintendent of the Head Center, lcturued last evening from a trip to Victorio and other points in New Mexico. lie speaks well of the prospects at Victorio, where he left Mr. J. II. Jack son. J. D. Klnncar, Esq., of Ash Canyon, is in towa to-day. 'BATTLE OF BURLEIGH rri. x.. n -. ,....,i..i i. j.ic juiui x uriy Auiuusucu uj Curly Bill and Eight Cow-boys. A Hand to Hand Kneonnter In Which Curly Bill Is Killed. The town has been full of reports for the last two or three days as to the whereabouts of the Earp party, and their probable movements. No sooner had one report got well under way before another was startod that contradicted it. There has been marching and countermarching by the sheriff and his possce until the community has become so used to the ring of spurs and clank of steel that comparatively little attention is paid to tho appearance of large bodies of horsemen in the 'streets. Yesterday afternoon the sheriff with a large force started down the road toward Contention, possibly to follow up the report that tho party had been seen in the Whetstone mountains, west of the San Pedro river, with their horses completely fagged out and the men badly demoralized. This, like the many other reports, was as baseless as the fabric of a dream. THE BATTLE OF BURLEIGH SPRING. Yesterday afternoon, as the sun was descending low down the west ern horizon, had a person been trav elling on tho Crystal or Lewis Spring road toward the Burleigh Spring, as our informant was, he would have seen one of the most desperate fights between the six men of the Eaip party and nine fierce cowboys, led by the daring and notorious Curly Bill, that ever took place between opposing forces on Arizona soil. Burleigh Spring is about eight miles south of Tombstone, and some four miles east of Charleston, near the mine of that name, and near the short road from Tombstone to Here ford. As our informant, who was traveling on horseback leisurely along toward the Burleigh, and as he rose a slight elevation in tho road about a half mile south thereof, he observed a party of six. men ride down to the spring from the cast, where they all dismounted, i hey had not much moro thaTT'got well upon their feet when there rose up at a short distance away, NINE AltMED MEM who took deadly aim ana fired simul taneously at the Earp party, for such the six men proved to be. Horrified at the sight, that like a lightning stroke flashed upon his vision, he in stinctively stopped and watched for what was to follow. Not a man went down under this murderous fire,but like a thunderbolt shot from the hand of Jove tho six desperate men charged upon their assailants like the light brigade at Balaklava, and when within easy reach returned tho fire under which one man went down never more to rise again. The re maining eight fled to the brush and regained their horses when they rode away toward Charleston as if the King of Terror&Vas at their heels in hot pursuit. Tns six men fired but one volley and from the close range it is supposed that several of the am bushed cowboys were seriously if not fatally wounded. THE SIX MEN returned to their horses where one was found to be in tho agony of death, he having received one of the leaden messengers intended for his rider. The party remained at the spring for some time refreshing them selves and their animals when they leisurely Jdoparted, going southerly as if they were making for Sonora. THE DEAD MAN CUKLY BILL. , After the road was clear our in formant rode on and came upon the dead man, who, from the description given, was none other than Curly Bill, the man who killed Marshal White in the streets of Tombstone, one year ago last September. Since the above information was obtained it has been learned that during the night the friends of Curly Bill went out with a wagoil and took the body back to Charleston where the whole affair has been kept a profound se cret, so far as the general public is concerned.

Smith on the charge of resisting an officer came up for hearing before .Justice Felter this morning, Hon. William Her'ing ap pearing for the defense, and Messrs. Wil liams and Southard for the prosecution. We publish the full text of the comprint upon which the arresU were made in order that the public may know the full facts in the case: In Justice's Court of Township Number One, in the County of Cochise, Territory of Arizona, before me, A.

Territory of Arizona, County of Co chise, ss. Personally appeared before me, A. J. Felter, a justice of the peace in and for township No. 1, in the county of Co chise, territory of Arszona, on this 22d day of March, A. D. 1882, John II. Behan, who being by me first duly sworn, complains and says, that on the 21st day of March, A. D. 1882, at the county of Cochise in the territory of Arizona, the crime of know, ingly and willfully obstructing and oppos ing John H. Behan, sheriff of Cochise county, territory of Arizona, in serving a criminal, and attempting to serve a war rant issued by Charles Myers, justice of the peace of Pima county, und by conspir ing together to commit said offence, was committed, and he accuses tho above named parties thereof, committed as fol lows: The said above named parties ob structed and refused to be arrested by said John II. Behan, that said above named persons at the county of Cochise in the territory of Arizona, and within said town ship on or about the 21st day of March, A. D. 1682, did then and there oppose anJ did-resist'-and refuse by threats, intimida tion and force to permit said John H. Be han to arrest said persons above named, and by firearms and force refused to allow said Behan to arrest the persons above named. All of which is contrary to the form of the statute in such case made and provided, and against the peace and dig nity of the territory of Arizona. Said complainant prays therefore that a warrant may be issued for the arrest of the said above named persons, and that he may be dealt with according to law. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 22d day or March, A. D. 1882. J. H. Behax. A. J. Felter, Justice of the Peace in and lor said Township in sail County. Defendants' attorney asked for a dismit. sal of the coses upon the ground that they were unlawfully arrested, as the officers had no warrant wherewith to legally ar- rest and restrain the defendants of their liberty. The court held that tke point was well taken, and therefore ordered their dis charge and the exoneration of their bonds. A l'rospeetor's Hclurn. William Smith, better known through out Arizona as "Military Bill," returned from a six-months' cruise last evening, bringing in some fine samples of ore from discoveries that he made about 140 miles to the north of here. One sample is a copper silver glace, almost maleable, and has the appearance of being very rich Mr. Smith thinks that he has got some thing very good, and we trust that he has struck it, as he is deserving an upward turn of the wheel of fortune, he having put in the best years of his life in Arizona wooing the fickle goddess.
