The Pleasant Valley Lynching
In response to a telegram seat to
Holbrook for further information con
cern! g the lynching in Pleasant Val
ley, the Jo uknal Mixer has receited
the following :
"Houjrook, Aug. 1G. Reports from
Pleasant Valley of the lynching, by
outlaws, of James Stott, James Scott
and Jeff Wilson, near Stott's lanch, on
the afternoon of the 11th, received
here up to date are as follows : The
parties were arretted on alleged ficti
tious chart; e.-, anil were in charge of
Jas. D. Houck and five others. They
were en route to Pleasant Valley, and
when near the Caxiyon Creek trail were
met by masked men who ordered Houck
and his men to move on. The pris
oners were found next morning hang
inn near the Verde road. Houck ar
rived in Holbrook on Monday, Au
gust 3d, and the latest intelligence re
ceived from the scene was on Tuesday
morning, when the bodies were report
ed as still hanging. From the best in
formation to-dtiy the county authorities
are taking no action in the matter."
The mot diligent inquiry among
parties acquainted in the Tonto basin
country fails to elicit any information
as to the iden ity of James Scott, th
only on of the name known, being tbe
sheepman, aud ex member of the leg
islature, who was not likely t t ave
been found in the company of two such
notorious characters as Stott and Wil
son are alleged to be. The general im
pression is that the lynch ng party
were not composed of outlaws either, as
the man Stott, although arrested seve
ral limes bad always managed to se
cure an acquittal, to the disgUBt and
annoyance of the better class of citizens,
who were cognizant of his place being a
rendezvous for horse thieves aud bad
characters, and who, as stated before,
had ordered him to leave the valley.
A Rumored Lynching.
Our contemporary contained the fel
owing telegram this morning from Hol
brook : " Information reached here of
the lynching of James Stall, James
Scott and Jell' Wilson, by outlaws, in
the south western part of this county.
The affair grew out of a recent war in
Tonto Bagin between sheep and cattle
laisers. Warrants were issued and the
arrests made by unauthorized persons,
and the prisoners were taken across the
mountains into Yavapai county, where
they were met by a pre-arranged mob
of outlaws, and hanged." Inquiry at
the sheriff' olli x for information con
cerning the truth of the above failed to
elicit any! hing further than that there
was probably an error as to the name
of one of the party. A man named
James Stott has made himself particu
larly obnoxious to the Jaw abiding citi
zens of that section, on account of his
alleged harboring of horse thieves, and
it is thought that if there was a case of
ly c'ung that he was the victim, in
stead of James Scott, who is a promi
nent sheep man of that vicinity, and was
a member of the 14th legislative assem
bly. This is also made more probable from
the fact, that Jeff Wilson, one of the
alleged victims, bears a very unsavory
reputation, and was suspected of being
inplicuted in the store robbery at Tonto
some tune Miice, anu ootn par
ties had been driven from this county.
Col. Eggers Card.
Editor JoruxAL-MiSER: In the
Arizona Gazette I find the following:
' Col, Eggers, one of the accredited
agents of the republican party of Ari.
zrnti, to the Ciiieago convention, ap
proached (leirgo Christ, one of the
alternates ami an uncompromising Al
lison ma-, .nil with an insinuating
smile, told Mr. Christ that he ha t lost
lis pocketbook and was deal broke,
and asked Mr. Christ f. r a temporary
loan. To 'his, the delegate fn m So-
nora onsented, and let Col. Eggers
have $125, Eggers in the meanwhile
telling him that he was an Allison man.
On the strength of this assertion, Mr.
Christ took him around to the Iowa
headquarters and int o uced him as an
AHison man from Arizona, and the
doughty Colonel borrowed $50 more
from Chris Tilings went on nicely
until Alger, of Michigan, was placed in
nomination, when to tha great surprise
aud disgust of Christ, up jumps Eg
gers and second the nomination of the
wolverine statesman. Christ howled
and shouted, but to no avail. Arizona's
vote was cast solid for Alger. Christ
said he di n't mind losing $175, but he
felt m sd for 'iitroducing the fellow to,
his countrymen as a gentleman."
In reply to said article. I have limply
t say : Sometime ago, after my return
home from Chicago, said paper, if I am
proper'y informed, alleg d that George
Christ had only resided iu Arizona a
very brief period, etc., etc. All of
which 1 denied. Now, that tkey have
exhausted themselves on Mr. Christ,
this said j) p r opens, for some cause
or other unknown to me, its vials of
wra h on me in the above article, which
is maliciously false and cowardly, a d
I desire to say that utwspaper men
who pursue such a illainous course
should receive, as they d serve, the just
rebuke of every citizen.
Now, Dunbar, you disgraceful editor
of the Gazette, before you make any
more breaks of ny kind at men, you
go actively to work and fix up your de
falcation ; or go to the penitentiary for
robbing the Cochise county treasury;
or do as defaulters generally do, slip
into Old Mexico or Canada, and live on
your steals and black mail, and grow
fat. Respectfully, L. F. Eggbes.
The Chautauquans-
The regular weekly meeting of tbe
Chautauqua circle took place at tbe
Williams House parlor, with Mrs. If.
O. Murphy, Wednesday. Responses to1
roll call were quotations from 8. F.
Coleridge. Mrs. Dake gave a complete
biography of the poet, Coleridge, fol
lowed by tbe reading of Coleridge's
Herndon. Mrs. Tritle then read a care
fully prepared "Criticism oa Coleridge,
as a Poet." "Plants and Prisons of
Western Siberia" was read by Mies
Mary Otis, after which Mrs. Burmiter
read an article front theCba'utauquan,
entitled "Italy's Womea Writers."
Current events were then .discussed,
whea the club adjearned to meet. Wed
nesday next at tbe residence ,efMrs.
D. Levy.

An eminent German sanitary expert
says that chemists have succeeded in
making a first-rate brandy out of saw
dust. A man can, therefore, get a rip
saw and go out aad get as drunk as a
lord on a fence rail. A man can make
brandy smashes out of the shingles f
his roof ; he can get delirium tremens
by drinking the legs of bis kitchen
chairs. You may shut an inebriate
out of a gin shop aad keep him away
from a tavern, but .if he can become
uprerious on boiled, sawdust aad desi
cated window sills, any attempt at re
form must necessarily be a failure. Ex.
Tonto basin, ia this county, is set
tling up pretty rapidly. The Apache
Review, published at St Johns, says:
"A party, consisting of two men and
one woman, with a couple of wagons
and a band of horses, passed through
town yesterday from Mason couaty,
Texas, en route to Payson, in Tonto
basin. About a month ago another
parly of emigrants trom the same
county in Texas, with eight or nine
wagons, and about 100 head of horses,
went through, destined for the same
locality."
One of our Phenix contemporaries
shows what it knows about what is
going oa in the mining regions of this
section by tbe following: "The Oro
Bella company is operating two mines,
the Oro Bella and Oro Pino, and have,
we believe, a twenty-stamp mill ia ope
ration. In their vicinity Messrs. Place
A Shekels are also operating a ten
stamp mill, also the Boas Mining Co.
are running a twenty-stamp mill."
Daniel Laub ia in treahle again.
This time he is charged .with attempt
ing to rob a man ia tbe Montesuma
lodging house, Friday aight. Mr. Da-
lin, the proprietor, heard him eater tbe
room adjoining the one where he slept,
and, armed with a stick of stove wood,
laid him out after be had effected an
entrance to tbe room, and turned aim
ever to Chas. Wallace, the aight watch
man.
Thomas Wing, ex-register of the land
ofa ce, had a sample basket of peaches
in town to-day from his Granite Dells
ranch, below town. There were three
varieties the Crawford, Smock and
Hoaest John. His trees are only four
years old, but ih s is his secoad crop
from them.
A geatlemaa, out of breath al
most, called at tbe post ofaot yesterday
and told Postmaster Head to give bin
one of those '-tea cent running marks,"
"then whea I aead raiae letter I knows
they gita him right avaj quick." He

One of the beauties and charms of an
editor's life is in his dead-heading it on
all occasions. One who has never
tasted that bliss can never begin to take
in his. glory and happiness. He does
$100 worth of advertising for a railroad
company, gets a "pass" for a year,
rides $25 worth ; and then he is looked
upon as a dead-head, er half blown
dead-beaL lie "puffs" a concert troupe
$10 worth, and gets $1 in "compliment
aries," and is thus passed "free." He
blows and puffs a church festival free
to any desire! extent, and does the
poster printing at half rates, and
merely gets a "thank you" for it. It
goee as part of his duty as editor. He
does more work gratuitously fur the
town and community than all the rest
of the population put together, aud
gets curses for it all. He passes "free"

two more chapters of the new story,
"Cenevieve; Or, "The Children of Port

It contains also a short story by Flor

"Perils and Heroes of the Melanesian

"Paul Scarron," by Henry Van Laun,
is an instructive study of that deformed

article, y the Rev. William Burnet, is
entitled "TlwfLegei. 1 of Elhanan ; Or

sermon is "Songs in the Night," and
editorially he comment on "War

Beet of Frie ds." The departments
are well kept up, and poems and short
articles all entertaining aud useful. It
is a good summer number.
The assessment returns from Pima
county have been received by the terri
torial board of equalization. It shows
the number of cattle in that county to
be 94,735, valued at $1,012,290. Yava
pai county takes the lead of all the
counties in the territory in the number
of cattle, having 50,000 more than
Pima, more than twice that of Apache,
and twice as many as Cochise.

"Our evening contemporary thinks
it would be able to give its patrons a
little more reading matter if it could
get fifteen or twenty thousand dollars
more from legislatures, says the
Courier. Correct you are. We were
net so fortunate, by several thousand
dollars, as the above paper at the last
session of the legislature.
Marshall Woods, of Witherellville,
sustained a very serious and painful
injury to one of his knees, a day or two
since, by having a loaded wagon run
over it. The attending physician says
that had the injuries been two inches
either way from where it is, it would
have resulted in crushing the bones of
the leg.

edited paper. A perusal of its columns
led us to believe it was a democratic
paper, but our contemporary contains a
notice to the effect that such is not the
case.
If, as our contemporary cUims, " the
democratic primaries here brought
rain," Peter Bolan's call for a demo
cratic convention has produced a storm,
bordering on a cyclone. It consists,
however, solely of democratic wind, the
only trace of moisture found being in
dications of poor whisky.
Harris Baldwin seems to havo the
inside track for the nomination as d s
triet attorney by the democratic con
vention. He is supported for the posi
tion by all the federal appointees .
Application was received by the
board of equalization from the Arizona
4 New Mexico R. R. to have its assess
ment reduced from $4,000 to $3,500 per
mile. The application was ref sed.
