MOHAVE COUNTY MINER.
JAMES J. HYDE, Editor. MINERAL PAEK, APRIL 13, 18S4. EDITOKIAIi XOTJBS. No snow-slides in Arizona. The Mormons now have ten mem bers of tae Idaho Legislature. No State or county official in Mis sissippi can now ride on a free pass. An international electrical exhibi tion is to be held in Philadelphia next fall. The annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race came off on the Thames last Monday. If this kind of weather continues our miners will have to quit mining ana,aiitkoic-Atloiitioii to ranching TheWis'cott JffisE.comes u,-."ii1tt fnr Snmnfil'M. JKandall for President, but we predict that neith er Eandall nor any other Democrat will get there. The Democratic organs which are so sure that Arizona will go demo cratic this fall are liable to get badly left in their calculations. It depends entirely who the Bepubhcan nomi nee for Congress happens to be. "We have received a communication signed by the members of the Board of Supervisors for publication. As it is somewhat lengthy and our reply to it will be considerably more so, we are compelled to lay it over until next week. A recent decision of the general land office makes it a violation of the United States statute for even the owner of a mining claim,unpatentea, to cut the timber on it for any other purpose than use in developing the claim, or for domestic purposes. Arizona wants good substantial men, citizens of the Territory, and whose interests are in the Territory, to represent it in the National Ke publican Convention and not old worn-out political hacks. We have had too many of the latter hereto fore. t Ghas.D. Poston announces him self as a candidate for delegate to Congress, and sets forth his claims for tfie position in an opon letter to Hon. Clark Churchill. We think the gentleman a little premature in coin inenoiag his campaign this early in the season, 'but still, on tho other hand, there is something in getting a good start. The Territory of Arizona pays out about 20,000 per year for the trans portation and keeping of its inEanp patients in a private asylum at Stock ton, Cal. It seems to us that this amount would support a very re spectable asylum at home, and that its citizens would derive considerable benefit in having this sum of money kept and expended in the territo ry. The delegates selected to repre sent Mohave county in the Phoenix convention which has been called to eisct two delegates and two alter cates to reDresent Arizona in the Bepubhcan convention at Chicago in June next, have been instructed to vote foi Dr. E. L. Burdick of" this place as one of the delegates and to use thfir best efforts to secure his election. The doctor is one of our best citizens, an honest, honorable gentleman and a good, sound Bepub lican. He is one of our representa tive men, his interests are in this territory and he is just the man who ouffht to represent Arizona in the national convention. We heartily endorse the action of the meeting and hope that the convention, will see fit to elect him as one of the dele gates. The meetings of the Board of Supervisors of this county are not conducted with that decency and decorum which is customary with such bodies. On the contrary the members, one and ail, indulge in profane and vulgar language to a rery great extent among themselves, and occasionally to those who have business before the Board. The chaiiman makes no effort to main tain order, but seems rather to di rect his efforts in the opposite direc tion. Tne result is that their meet msrs sometimes generate into a reg ular pandemonium, the members, with a sprinkling of outsiders, who go there for the purpose of having some fun, all shouting and swearing at the same time. To say the least this is very improper, and is one of the reasons why our Board does not obtaining from the people to which they are' en people have a right to tho sessions of the xraducted role man This is the vnfytne Yavapai county Supervisors attend to the county roads in their county. The following are extracts from the minutes of their last meeting: "On motion it was ordered that the road from Prescott to Ask Fork, by way of Limestone Gap. which has been laid out and worked by S. J. Sullivan and others, is declared a county road and 400 appropriated to aid in its construction, with S. J. Sullivan as overseer." "Report of B. B, Steadman, over seer of road district No. 2, accepted and bill of 782.60 allowed." A little of the same kind of liberali ty in road matters on the part of our ! Supervisors would be appreciated b a very large majority of our taxpay ers. . News of the We'ek. Much damage wras doneand sever al livjfcere lost by hurricanes in offffifffi,i.

March 27, the rebels fired upon Khartoum from the village opposite. They were soon forced to evacuate losing fifty nhae men in the engagement, and Bashi Bazouks occupied the city and held it until March 30, when the rebels returned in force and drove them out, but they then retired them selves. El Mahdi has sent the rebe s six guns. Gen. Gordon estimates the rebels about Khartoum to num ber fully 20,000. One half of Mandalay, capitol of Burmah, and a city of 90,000 people has been burned. It is reported an attempt was made to destroy with dynamite the maga zine of Fort George a few miles from Inverness, the marauders escaped in boats but not before the sentry had bayonetted one of them.

The course was the regular Thames course four miles and two furlongs from Putney to Mortlaka. The weather was very unpropitious. The air was filled with drizzling rain, a heavy mist overhung the river whde the water was decidedly shippy. There were but few spectators. The Cambridge crew were the favorites from the start, and won an easy vic tory. Halifax, April 4. The steamer Daniel Steinman from Antwerp for this point is reported as sunk off Sombro,about twenty miles from this port. She struck during last night and only nine men are so far report ed to have reached land out of 140 on board. Later. Intelligence so far from the wreck of the steamer Daniel Steinmann is very meagre. It is said the Captain and five of the crew were the only persons saved. The ship had ninety passengers and thirty-four of a crew. Twenty of the passengers to land here were all Germans and seventy were for New York. She is supposed to have struck on the Sisters off Sombro last night and shortly after sunk. Her mast is now visible from the shore. Intelli gence did not reach here until 'this afternoon. Considerable of the cargo was for here and the balance for New York. The owners have gone to the wreck. For three days and nights the most destructive fires ever known have been devastating the southern border of North Carolina, extending into six or seven counties. Vast for ests of long leaf pine have been at tacked. These form the chief source of the timber supply. The high winds fanned the flames into a terrible fury, hundreds , and thousands of trees were burned and some of the largest turpentine plants are charred and ruined. Many farms have been de stroyed, but the people are bravely fighting the fire. A number of towns narrowly escaped destruction. At Manly, on the Raleigh & Augusta railroad a number of houses were burned, while large amount of stores, lumber and railroad sills on the line of the road are destroyed. Dozens of turpentine distilleries are ruined. The country in great stretches is but a blackened wilderness. The extent of the disaster is not yet known or fairly realized, many families are i homeless. The fire swept fifty miles ffg m one direction, and thirty m anoth er, few places, it is reported escaping. The fire was caused by the high winds blowing spai'ks into the tur pontine woods. The fires have ex tended far into South Carolina on the line of the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta railway, and tho trains have been running through miles of fire. A number of dwellings and eight or ten barns were burned in that direc tion; so far as learned no lives were lost.

" The first sentencing of prisoners in Cincinnati since the riot took place on Monday, in Judge John stone's court. Belle Osborne (color ed), convicted of shooting with intent to kill, received seven years. She begged most piteously when senten ced was announced, and the J udge began to say as this was a woman he would modify the sentence, when the prosecutor interposed a vigorous pro test saying: "This woman has been before criminal courts again and again." The Judge permitted the sentence to remain. John Murlah pleaded guilty to manslaughter. It appeared that he struck a man with his fist. The plea was accepted and the sentence of five years given. St. Louis, April 10. The Globe Democrat prints a special from the city of Mexico stating that the feel ing against the recently enacted Stamp tax is still very bitter, and the situation is critical. Business is sus pended in many parts of the Bepub lic, and the merchants generally are assuming a very determined attitude. It .is reported that the government intends to declare the acts of the merchants in closing their stores revolutionary; that their licenses will be revoked, and that they will be compelled to pay heavily for' the privilege oE reopening their stores. On the other hand, it is claimed that the Mexican Senate has passed to a second reading the bill repealing the stamp act, but as the government is not in sympathy with this move it is doubtful whether the bill will finally pass.. A dispatch from Matainoras says: "The condition of the affairs of the government are deplorable. Charges of financial rottenness and intimations of revolution are made if a greatly better state of things is not speedily brought about," TELEGRAPHIC. MORE WASHOUTS.
