lilBEKA DAILY SENTINEL.
SUNDAY, :::::: JUNE 30, 1873. CJKT the I»ITH «*’ THIS. Professor Frank Stewart, writing to the Enterprise from Tuscarora, says: The Grand Prize Company is making hercnloan endeavors toward getting the mine in shape for an early resumption of the work, and nobody for an instant doubts that the new shaft will develop a rich bon anza in the " Old Reliable;” but it takes time to erect heavy machinery, to build tho necessarv houses, and to blast the rocks to a great depth, as you of the Comstock are fully aware, and, in my opinion, the Prize will not be ready to resume the shipment of bullion before next October. Yea, and it takes money as well as time *< to erect heavy machinery, to build nec essary houses and to blast tho rocks to a great depth.” And when the Grand Prize begins to ship bullion again next fall, how much will the company be allowed to de duct from the bullion yield to cover these enormous expenses, before tho " net pro duct” is reached. Under the present law not one dime can be allowed. On the con trary, every dollar's worth of bullion, less the actual cost of extracting it from the ore, will be deemed and held as the net yield of the mine, and the tax will be levied and collected accordingly. The Grand Prize may expend $100,000 in improve ments this summer, and when one hun dred dollars in bullion is produced in tho fall, the tax runs against it—the law as suming the one hundred to bo "net pro ceeds.” What a lie 1 And yet it is in jus tification of this iniquitous statute that Governor Bradley seeks to be elected for a third term. An honest man, understand ing the subject, would as Boon stand on a platform justifying the stopping of stages on the highway. Either is robbery, pure and simple. CHARLIE ROSS' FATHER. Mr. Christian K. Ross, whose Bail expe riences occasioned by the abduction of his boy Charlie have made his name as fa miliar os household words, was last week tendered the posidon of Master Warden of the port of Philadelphia, at a salary of $2,500 per annum. Tho receipt of this commission, says the Philadelphia Record, was the first intimation that Mr. Ross had received that Governor Hartranft had even considered his name in connection with the position. He accepts it as an ex pression of the sympathy felt for him in the terrible ordeal he has borne so long, and the sacrifice of his entire property in his efforts to recover tho Btolcn boy. “I have spent all the money I had and all 1 could get hold of, in my search,” said Mr, Ross, when asked how much his investiga tions had cost him. Mr. Ross says that, including tho $20,(00 donated by the citi zens’ committee, nearly $80,000 has been expended in efforts to restore the lost child to his parents, and he does not pro pose to give up the search so long as he can get the means to pursue it. He has investigated about five hundred different cases which have been presented to him as “final" discoveries of the lost Charlie, and every day brings fresh communications, claiming to throw new light on tho sub ject. .. -■ - It is learned, at the Philadelphia sub treasurv, that there is no demand for sil ver ce. tificates in that city. As yet, none have been issued, and the few received came from transactions with New York. The possibility of a large issue there is small, because the circulation of silver dollars in Philadelphia does not amount to more than $30,000. It has been found difficult to circulate the Bland silver dol ’ lar, because as soon as it is paid out, it re turns again from the Customs Department. Six weeks ago an order was given to put ont $50,000 of the new coin. This was done, and in five days from the tirno the amount had been exhausted, $30,000 of it had been received from the Customs De partment, where it had been paid in for duties. -.$• Major Reno hag written to Mr. Ban ning. Chairman of the House Committee on Military Affairs, requesting an investi gation into the Custer massacre. He Bays that during the past two years he has suf fered much from the circulation of various malignant reports concerning his connec tion with that terrible affair, and he now demands an opportunity to vindicate his character and reputation. If his request for a Congressional investigation is denied, Major Reno will demand a military court of inquiry. Dubino a fall of rain at Lowell, Mass., recently, a yellowish substance was depos ited npon the ground and in the water iu different parts of the city, which had the taste and odor of sulphur and all the char acteristics of that mineral. When it fell into the water there was a yellow scum on the surface, and a basin which had keen left out of doors was partly filled with the substance, which, when dried and burned, gaveoff strong snlphurons fumes. A simi lar phenomenon was observed at Mans field, New Bedford and Fall River. A box was found by a fisherman floating down the Sacramento river, which, on be ing opened, was found to contain tho skel eton of a man, with a rope about his neck, Indicating that he had been hanged, and than consigned to the river. ♦ ♦ ■ ” ' -• Tubs is a Chinaman in the Stockton Jail who has three times shed his irons and tried to get away, and has twice tried to kill himself, and it takes all the guards in the establishment to watch him. He evi dently believes that the Chinese must go. TIKABOBA ITEMS. (From the Timss-Review.] Transient visitors to Tuscarora fre quently go away under the false impres sion that the town is either deserted or that the citizens are all deeply absorbed in aurotrseted indoor prayer meeting. Just let such visitors be on hand when a dog fall blast on Weed street, and they will conclude that this is tho most populous and wide-awake burg on the American continent. Yesterday, Mr. L. I. Hogle went to his ranch for the purpose of making prepara tions for harvesting his hay crop, llogle’s ranch is situated in Independence Valiev, at the distance of about twelve miles northeasterly from Tuscarora, and con tains some of the finest natural meadows in the State. The cricket visitation has almost en tirely disappeared. There are some thou sands of the dilatory monsters still cling ing to the sides of houses and awning posts, but the great swarm has passed to ward the northeast. The instant that one ef the moving swarm gets killed, or even maimed, his ravenous comrades pounce upon him and completely devour his carcass. ^ EASTERN NEWS. NIGHT DISPATCHES. [special to tiie eureka daily sentinel.] WASHINGTON INTELLIGENCE. LETTER IN ANSWER TO SEC. SHERMAN. ONE HUNDRED WITNESSES TO BE SUBPCENAED. Five Hnmlred Ollier WilncwM to Coutradiet ilicm. PROCEEDINGS AGAINST TIIE C. P. R. It. Washington, June 29. A draft of a letter has been prepared by Mr. Morrison, of the Potter Committee, in answer to Secretary Sherman, requesting to have subpccnacd from Louisiana one hundred witnesses, who are expected to give material testimony touching the free dom of the election, murders and intimi dation of the voters in all of East and parts of West Feliciana parish. Mr. Mor rison save, in the course of his reply, that should these one hundred witnesses testify, five hundred other witnesses, at least as credible as they, will be ready again to contradict them. The reply concludes as follows : Whatever of accusation is made against you in the resolutions of the House of Representatives, under which this com mittee is acting, rests so far as any testi mony yet heard, shows upon the statement and allegations that to influence and con trol D. A. Weber and Jas. E. Anderson in their official acts, you made them verbal promises, and wrote a letter to them giving them assurances and promises of reward. If the committee cor rectly understood your statement before it, you denied writing such a letter and making such promises, and, however ma terial the evidence of the witnesses you ask to have examined, may be to the fact of the number of persons killed, threatened, driven from office, or otherwise intimi dated, as you assure the committee it can, in no way effect you personally, if the committee has correctly understood you, I K# UDUJ 1110 nmoouwii vuui jwu uiuic uun letter and gave these promises and assur ances. for such allegation will be neither established nor disproved by the evidence of the number of men killed in the Fe liciana parishes, whether killed because others sought to steal their votes. The committee is, therefore, constrained for the present, respectfully to decline a com pliance with your request to have sub prenaed as witnesses the s veral persons named by you, all of whom havo testified once, some of them twice, and others three times, on the same subject, and their testimony is preserved and now accessible to all in the records. The Fotter Committee has received a tele gram from Governor Packard, claiming that he has been cited to appear before the sub-committee in Newr Orleans at 1 o’clock to-day, and it is understood that his exam ination, on all points suggested by General Butler, will take place there. William E. Chandler produced the dispatches sent by him from the Fifth Avenue Hotel early on the morning of November 8th, though da ted November 7tli, to George C. Gorham, California; J. W. Mitchell, Oregon; S. B. Packard, New Orleans: Governor Cham berlain, South Carolina, and Senator Con over, Florida, in each of which lie stated that Hayes and Wheeler were elected, as they had carried these States, and in each of which he also counseled the Republicans to be watchful against possible Democratic fraud. While in Florida Mr. Chandler re ceived a telegram from President Grant, saying: I hope you will remain in Flor ida until the vote of that State is decided. Mr. Chandler did not know of the exist ence of frauds in Florida, and tlic $5,000 for which he telegraphed, was handed by him to General Martin, who expended it in procuring cvideuco. Secretary Schurz, to-day, officially re quested Attorney-General Dovens to insti tute proceedings against the Central Pa cific Railroad Company, to set aside the patents issued to that company for about 20,000 acres of lands, situated within the claimed limits of the Manuel Dias grant, in the Marysville land district. This grant wras rejected by the Suprtu.' Court in March, 1877. The lands were patented to the railroad company under dates of March, 1872, and March, 1875, and Decem ber, 1875. Secretary Schurz holds, that und« r the principles announced by the Supreme Court in the case of Newhall vs. Hanger, these lands being within the limit of a private grant, were excepted from the operation of tlio railroad grant, and the patents were issued for them erroneously, without the authority of the law. IjOiag Branch Races. Long Branch, Juno 29. The race for a purse of $300, three quarters of a mile, brought Bramble, Idala. Judith, Faithless, Dornley, Egypt and Doctor Koeslter to the starting post.

New' York, June 29. A special from Washington says that two. famous law cases were called in the Court here to-day, but went over to the September term by mutual consent. These are the suits of the widow Oliver against ex-Sen ator Cameron for alleged breach of prom ise of marriage,and that of Biggins against ex-President Grant for imprisonment. In the latter case, Biggins, who was sent to an insane asylum, charges that his incarce ration there was procured by General Gran*. A Itciolutlon of Vindication. New York, June 29. The Tribune of yesterday, in reviewing its specials on Potter’s Committee, says the evidence was such to-day that our cor responnent telegraphs that there is nothing left the Committee, which is honorable, ex : cept to pass a resolution of vindication.

THE BULGARIAN QUESTIONS DISPOSED OF. Europe Recognizes the Necessity of the Late War. -- THE ABILITY OF RUSSIAN DIPLO MACY. Funeral of the Queen of Spain. St. PETEBSBrBo, June 29. The Journal tie St. Petersburg says: Now that the Bulgarian questions are dis posed of, the views of Europo. which have liitherto regarded the integrity of Turkey in the light of a dogma, havo undergone it total change. Europe now recognizes the necessity of the late war by sanctioning its results. Thia bears testimony of the suc cess, ability and prudence of Russian dip lomacy, which may be congratulated from having obtained the object for which it has striven. Mabbib, .Tune 29. The remains of the Queen of f-paiu were removed to the Escurial to-day with great ceremony. In the city, the streets along 1 the line gf the funeral procession were filled \ with vast crowds of silent and mourning people, Berlin, June 29. A portion of the tnnnel near Schwelin, fell last night, burying 27 persons. Seven bodies have been recovered; search for the others continues. PACIFIC COAST. CALIFORNIA. BUSINESS MEN FAVOR A THREE DAYS HOLI DAY. CLOSING OF ALL PRINCIPAL BUSI NESS PLACES. A GERMAN OFFICIAL RESIGNS. TIIE ARREST OF TWO OFFICIALS. San Francisco, June 29. There is considerable expression of opin ion among business men in favor of mak ing Thursday Friday and Saturday of next week a sort of general holiday, closing the banks and other principal places of busi ness. The adjourn ment over next week of the stock boards will practically close up mining and brokers’ offices, and it is agreed that after closing the banks, etc., for the 4th of July, that in view of the regular half holiday on Saturday, it will hardly he worth while to open on Friday. Henry Brickwedel, Supervisor for the Twelfth Ward, has tendered his resigna tion to the Mayor. Mr. Briclcwedel, who is a sturdy, honest old German, of pro nounced convictions, gives as his reasons for resigning, that ho is disgusted with public life, and the way things go in the Board of Supervisors. Warrants were to-day issued for the ar rest of Hiram B. Cook, a deputy in the ex-Collcctor’s office, and John P. Bell, the attorney entrusted with the collection of delinquent taxes. Both are charged with petty larceny, and Cook, in addition, is charged with felony. The two have been in collusion, Bell collecting from taxpay ers amounts somewhat in excess of what was due from them, while Cook made en tries in the books to cover up the swindle, and the parties divided the stealings. The individual amounts of their operations are small, but will probably aggregate a con siderable snm. The San Francisco and Pacific stock hoards adjourned to-day until Monday, July 8tli. This evening an unknown man walked out to the end of Meiggs’ wharf and then placing a pistol to his head, fired, the ball passing through his brain The suicide fell from the wharf into the bay. The body was recovered’in a few minutes by a boatman, but life was extin -t. Owing to the vacation of the stock ex changes n^xt week, it is contemplated to start a long room in the basement of the Big Board building, at which outsiders can deal for themselves, on a rash basis. A great number of brokers of both boards will leave town during next week, going to Virginia, Eureka, Portland and Santa Cruz. NEVADA. The Sutro Tunnel Not Yet Con nected with the Saves© It’orh* in^s—Death from an Overdose of Chloroform. Virginia City, June 29. At 3 o’clock this afternoon the Sutro tunnel had not been connected with the Savage workings. The sounds coming from the tunnel heading seem to indicate that the face of the Savage drift, on the 1040 level, has been left to the east some 10 or 15 feet. If the sounds can be relied upon, the tunnel men are pushing straight for the west wall of the Comstock. In that case, they have 250 feet yet to run, and the connection will be delayed for at least a month. The fact that Mr. Sutro remains in San Francisco gives plausibility to this supposition. Mrs. G. Warner, a lady living on II street, died this morning of an overdose of chloroform, accidentally taken. An employe of the County Ilospital fell in a fit, on the street, yesterday, and died at 3 o’clock this morning. IDAHO. Exccntion of an Indian Murderer. Boise City, June 29. Tombiago, the Bannock murderer of Rbodan, was hanged in the yard of the penitentiary, near this city, at one o’clock this afternoon. He begged for respite for another day. saying he would willingly dio if he could have one more sleep. He said that the chief Toyee and some of the In dians would come to see him if he could live another day. On the scaffold, he bore liimself as a stoical savage, and seemed only to regret that he was compelled to go alone and without seeing any one of his people. His brother Arone, who claims to be such, is in the penitentiary under a ten years sentence for shooting the three team sters near Fort Hall last summer. This Indian yesterday attempted to commit sui cide. He opened a vein of one of his arms, and had lost nearly blood enough to cause death, but he was discovered in time. He and Tanibiago both asked that if one must die the other be permitted to die also. THE BLACK HILLS. [From the Journal.] The placer mines at Rockerville, Dead man’s Gulch and Hayward are among the richest and most extensive that have ever been found in the Hills. Hundreds of men are now working those mines with more or less success, but with undimin isbed hope, and making from two to even one hundred and fifty dollars per day, per man. Newr discoveries are of daily, almost hourly occurrence, and the richest of them are almost invariably better than any that have preceded them. Probably the most valuable discovery that has been made, is in a gulch two miles northeast of Rocker ville, in the limestone formation, and probably nobody other than a tenderfoot or a woman would have stuck a pick in the ground at that point. The exploit of a pilgrim from the Htates, who recently wandered into that locality and tound it ; yielding $1.80 to the pan, and shortly thereafter sold his third interest for $1,500, I has been already told in these columns. West of tins belt of mines comes a dif ferent formation, and where true fissure veins are found. In any direction are found quartz and placer mines, and the only trouble experienced is the lack of capital for their development. Those miners already on the ground, have from ten to one hundred leads, each, which ab sorb all the time and money they have to r present and hold their claims. Tbe great drawback of the country is that there are too manv mines, and too few practical miners. But these difficulties will soon bo obviated with the sp< edv advent of cap ital. Ditohos will be constructed to the thousands of acres of rich placer diggings : hundreds of mills will be in operation, and constant employment guaranteed to thou sands of men and teams. Then the south ern and central portions of the Hills will take its proper place as the foremost min ing camp in the known gold and silver pro ducing country in the world. Jeff. Davis has been selected a member of tho association of the Confederate Army of Tennessee, and at its meeting in New Orleans, ho will be presented with a gold badge. Anderson says: “I am a Republican from principle, and can never be anything else.” That settles it. Queen Victoria intends to travel. Her new palace car will cost $30,000.
