In MincraTPark the election passed
off unusually quiet and with no dis
turbances to speak of. Of course there
woa considerable hilarity among cer-
"fen of our citizens who consider the

can be accounted for from the fact
that many of our towns-folk who
should havo vted here were away
on the railroad and elsewhere elec
tioneering. So far wo publish returns
tarn all the railroad precincts, from
hdcbswv, Gold Basin and Maynard
?S From some unaccountable
reason the returns have not yet come
W hand from Cedar, Sandy and Sig
nal, nor from Frazier's camp near
-Haokberry, hence there ia still some
uncertainty on the part of some of
the candidates. From the returns as
far as received we conclude that
Gary will carry thi3 County by about
7S majority, while Davis will have
about the same majority over Hbrton.

Southwick.TJnless Velton should get
the whole of the Sandy vote,which is
not likely as Southwick is well known
and liked in the southern part of the
county, it looks as though the 84
votes cast for Southwickwould lose

Last August, when the Board of
Equalization of this county raised
the assessment on cattle from 10 to
12 per head, tile stock men all over
the county raiseJ-Fhb cry that it was
an imposition antHhat it was too
much,and-some-oven? went so far as to
say that they would drive their cattle
elsewhere, f
Tho wisdbm of Uhe Board in taking
the action they didlias since become
apparent in many ways, and at the
present price of" cattle in this county
there is little danger of any cattle
being drivon away. Cattle are now
held at prices ranging from 18 to
22.50 per head, and there are more
buyers then seljers in the market,
even at that high figure. Witness
the re cent sales of cattle in Mohave
and Y avapai counties. C. T. Rogers
$f Chino Yalle-y, recently sold 1S00
head of crutlo v.i 18 per head, Fred
Nobmann sold Lis entire herd a few
days since, including calves' at 20
per head. Chas. Gross of this phco
has lately sold 30 head at 20, Oar

dossiers camp with beef, and his fig
ures were 11 cents per pound dressed
and delivered, which is equivalent to
22.50 per head for beef cattle. Paul
Breon and other stock owners on tho
Colorado recently asked ?22. per head
for, everything that was branded,
though they afterwards came down
to 19. We do not think that stock
m'en in this county have any reason
to complain at tho present price of
cattle or to claim that 12. per head
is an exorbitant assessment

is being prosecuted on a number of
these claims with good results.
The Chloride, owned by Pulton &
Co., has a shaft down about 25 foefc
and shows a line body of mineral.
The ledge is about 4i feet wide and
will average SCO to the ton in silver
and carries about 50 per cent. lead.
Tho creek runs across one end of the
claim and an abundance of water is
assured for all purposes. Berry, an
expert in the employ of San Francis

that a sale will-soon take place.
