'l'he poople of the United States,
by universal consent, have set apart
the 31st of May in each year as a
day to bo devoted to the memory of
the brave spirits who offered up thoir
liyes in their country's cause during
the great civil war. Congress, has set
its seal of authority on the custom,
and decreed that the day shall be ob
served as a legal holiday. First bo

No more loveablu sign of a nation's

Sectionalism and party, . and the
heart burnings of tho great conflict,
are buried with the past, and tho
American people, with heart and

Governor Tritle's telegram
published yesterday, to Mayor Carr,
pledging the citizens of Prescott to
any aid needed by the sufferers from
the Are, was probably intended as a
graceful act. It is to be regretted
that he considered it necessary
"to connect his namo with the chair
nun of the Territorial Republican
Central committee, as suoh oonneo
tfon gives a partisan color to the dis
patch. Possibly it would also have
been in better taste,had the Governor
stated his willingness iu the premises,
without tendering any particular sum
of money. Gosper's telegram is
simply political taffy. After all, tho
mayor of Prescott is perhaps the
proper party to pledge the citizens
of his city, to any act.
The so-called "Independent" pa

that they should be; Arizona has had
enough of those political black

well if tho Board of Supervisors
would immediately direct tho con

From rocent arrivals from Sonora we
learn that the hos'tiles aro committing nit.
incrous depredations in that State. Juh's
band, that recently escaped lroni General
Itcves, turouRk strategy, are now divided
into detachments anil raiding in every di
rection. Owlne to keen care on tho part
of tho inhabitants, few murders have been
committed, but the robbery of stock has
been carried on extensively. About ten
days ago not "less than twenty-five of-them
made a laid on a little hamlet about
thirty miles east of Sinaqulpo and at
tempted to massacre the inhabitants, but
the latter, being warned of their approach
about hnlf an hour beforo their arrival,
fortified themselves in their houses as best
they could and managed to stand the
redskins oil". Their stock, however, was
unguarded, and was declared contraband
of war by the roacgades and driven pff. A
Tew days later they attacked a ranch some
distance east ot B.iuchacl, but were
torced to keep at a respectful distance, a$
the owners of the ranch wcro in readiness
to recelve'themTifcUof tiles surrounded
the home and kytt up a steady fire at'tuo
doors and windows for nearly an hour.
During tho progress of the, fusilade a son
of the ranchman, who had been out
hunting cattle, returned, and the hostllcs
Immediately mado a dash to capture him.
He retreated rapidly and thc.wholeb and
01 Indians went at full gallop after him.
He had n little the best of them as regards
horses, and kept well In advance. Tho
red devils chased him until within threo
miles of Banchuci, and then suddenly re
treated towards the hills. A party was Im
mediately raised at Bauchacl to go in pur
suit, but while the pursuers kept a warm
trail, they were unable to catch up with
the gan?, and it Is generally supposed that
they escaped to this side of tho line.
Owing to the frequent outrages commit
ted by the hostlles, the Governor of Sonora
issued n proclamation, calling upon all
men capable of bearing arms, to rally and
drive the hostiles from Mexican soil or an
nihilate them. The Mexicans have an ex.
tensive force in tho field at the present
time, not less than six hundred federal and
about 1000 -state troops being within a
short distance of Arizona.
Mr. Williams, superintendent of the
Copper Queen smeller, at Bisbee, arrived
In town yesterday, and states that he met
three Americans at Hereford, who inform
ed him, that they were overtaken by an
extensive body of tho Custom House
guards, near tho San Pedro, and wcro in
formed by them that they were chasing a
band of hostiles who were seen in that lo
cality the previous night, and wero evi
dently heading for tho Chirachucas. Tho
same authority states that a number of
Mexican troops, at last accounts, were in
warm pursuit of a band of seventy-live,
and depended altogether on horse flesh, as

There is hardly a doubt but Sonora was
made too hot for the renegades, and that

Messrs. Robinson and Parsons, who aro
engaged hauling a quartz mill, camped
two miles on the other side of the Custom
Housoon tho San Pedro, Saturday night.
They returned here yesterday, and state
that tho Commander of the Custom House
Guards told them to go no further, as his
guards had been II red on by hostiles, and
had a skirmish about six miles distant;
that thev followed on tho trail for five
miles and jumped a pirty of Indians In
stead of the smugglers they had been
looking for, and exchanged several shots.
Tho horse of one of "the Custom Houso
Guards had been shot. The same guard
informed the teamsters that fifteen Indians
wero lound near their camp tho pre
vious morning- A llttlo further
on they stole two or threo mules
from prospectors. Sunday morning our
Informants went with the Captain and
thirteen Mexicans on tho trail, and follow
cd it about ten miles. Tho trail was hot
at times but they had to abandon it in con
sequence of the Impossibility of trailing
through the rocks. The general direction
of the hostiles was in the direction of
thj) 'Whetstone mountains or San Rafael
vallev. west side of the Huachuc&s. A
company ef soldiers were encountered at
Lewis' Springs, and being informed of the
above, a courier was sent to liuachuca to
inform tho troop3 at that point so as to
irivo them a chance to head tho Indians oil'.

A Little Excitement. But Not very
About two o'clock yesterday altcrnoon
M. J. Stores, of Jackson Sprints, in tho
Dragoons, reached town in a high state of
excitement, end reported that five Indians,
driving about fifty head of horses and
mules had passed his place, heading south
ward, in the morning. He had not seea
the Indians himself, but there is not a
doubt that the old man's statement is
truthful. lie said the Indians wetp on
the trail leading from Cochise's strong
hold to Silver Cloud. This was about day
break, and they wero first seen by Charley
McDonald,who fired on them. They were
not spoiling for a fight, and retreated as
fast as they could, In the direction of Billy
Miller's camp. Tins man is naming woou
for Ben Wood of this city, and seeing tho
Indians approach at a rapid rate, turned
his Winchester loose. They wero not
quite near enough to make tho shots ef
fective, but wert badly scared, and they
changed their course in the direction of
Chandler's ranch. McDonald followed
them up, and meeting Miller, a consulta.
tion was held, and It was decided that tho
hostiles would in all probability mako
towards the South Pass, and they icsolved
to take a short cut in that direction and
head them oil'. But the wily savages were
not equal to the speculation and McDon
ald ana JUiier returned to camn auoui xu
o'clock, pretty well exhausted. Meeting
Mr. Storea. that gentleman volunteered to
come to this city and give tho Information.
On reaching hero no sougnt out uainaiu
Jackson, but was more than disappointed
when informed by that gentleman that tho
rangers wero a thing of tho past. Ho en
deavored to get four or five men to go with
him, but at Inst accounts was not success
ful. From all accounts tho savages were
not much on tho fight, and studiously
avoided firing a shot. They had some very
flno American stock, but the horses seemed
exhausted, and ono animal was abandoned
near Jackson's Spring. Ono of tho In
dians rode a ahead and tho four others

On behalf of the members of the fire de
partment. Council Meeting.
At a meeting of theclty council last even
ing, tho Mayor stated the council had been
convened for tho purpose of considering
Important amendments to the cxlstlng.flre
ordinances. He bellved that to secure
safety to the property of citizens it was ne
cessary to create a rigid ordinance requir
Ing all persons who may rebuild within
tho fire limits to construct adobe, brick,
stone or iron buildings; that unless made
strictly fireproof tho city would bo In a
worso condition than formerly. Also that
roofs, awnings,"water closets, etc., should
be constructed of fireproof material ; also
that "the ordinance permitting hay, coal
oil, and other inflammable substances to
be stored within the fire limits should be
repealed, allowing only such articles to
be stored in limited quantities in buildings
properly protected. That in his opinion
tho future reputation and business pros
perity ot our city depends solely upon the
substantial character of the buildings
which may hereafter.be constructed. If
so, the city, within' a few months,
would bo more beautiful and substantial
than before.
X. committee of three wero appointed to
drait and submit an ordinance iu conform

Mr. Atchison moved that the city epgi

committee on streets confer with him in
establishing such grades.
Tho clerk read the petition of 'a large
number of citizens asking that tho council
declare a certain straw cabin occupied by
Mrs. McKenna, on Fremont street, be de
clared a nuisance.
Mr. Nash offered the following rcsolu.
tion which was passed unanimously
Resolved: That a certain straw thatcn
ed cabin, situate on lot 19, in block 31, on
Fremont street; owned, occuoied and
maintained by Mrs. Mary McKenna, is
hereby declared a nuisance, and the- Fire
Warden, aided by the police forco of this
city is directed to cause the removal of
said nuisance lorthwitb.
On motion the fire warden was instruct
ed to enter complaints against all parties
violating the city ordinances.
Mr. Nash, chalrnian of the committco
on fire and water, moved that an mvitauon

From Mr. August Joeress, or Russell
Camp, who arrived in Tombstone yestcr

ercoted at that point by the Philadelphia
Company, is running along smoothly and
doing excellent work. The smelter was
started up on the ICth and made a trial run
for twenty-lour hours, and was then shut
down for a few repairs. It was started up
again on last Tuesday, and since then has

A Treaty with Outlaws.
St. Louis, May 28. The Post
master makes tho statement that
Governor Crittenden has been in ne
gotiation with Frank James for tho
past ten days; stated that Frank
James has nominally surrendered to
the authorities under a flag of truce,
and Governor Crittenden has pro
mised full and unconditional pardon
to the James outlaw; further stated
delay in negotiation was occasioned
by the friends of Frank James insist
ing that full pardons should also be
secured from the Governors of Min
nesota and Texas, where the outlaw
is under tho ban of tho law, and steps
are now being taken to that end.

Tho gist of replies is, that the south

of tho replies indicate dissatisfaction
with the methods of tho leaders. The
South had great hopes of Garfield's
administration and Arthur disap

him as a narrow partisan. Express

High or Low-grade Ores. A
six-ft. ledge of 830 or $40 ore, even
should it bo free milling, is too
small a thing for most prospectors.
What they are after is a big ledge of
$1,000 rock. They havo not time to
look at the small things. Experience
teaches them nothing. If they have
a prospect on which they have sunk
a half dozen feet, that shows ore of a
high grade, they will not look at less
than $100,000 or so for it. Hundreds
of bursted prospectors can be found
who own locations from which rock
that will assay $1,000 or more, can
be obtained, but these rich streaks
are scarce. Canitalists have dis
covered that large ledges of low
grade ore in tho end prove the most
profitable and permanent, and it is
into these that they are putting their
coin, on general business principles.
It would be better for a prospector
to spend his time on a mine that he

to acknowledge the efficiency mani
fested by our Fire Department in

your untiring efforts and manhood
displayed during the day, our city
would at present bo in ashes. The
noble conduct of the officers and

will be long and pleasantly remem
bered by the citizens of Tombstone
and myself, for the able and efficient
manner in which you performed
your duties as firemen.
