The Pacific Iron Works, Rankin, Brayton & Co., of San Francisco, have recently shipped a 40-ton smelt ing plant to the Philadelphia Co. at Ketchum. This with the smelter and sampling works constructed by this firm, for the same company, last fall makes a complete plant of the capacity of 80 tons per day. The same firm have, also, just com pleted an 80 ton plant for the Little Wood River company, to be erected at once on the Muldoon mine. Roth of these enterprises arc owned and operated by the Philadelphia com panies under the general manage ment of Col. Green, a gentleman of large experience in mining opper ations in California. No expense has been spared to make these works the most perfect and complete in all their appointments of any that have ever been constructed. The amount of bullion they will turn out when fairly in operation will convince the most skeptical as to the resources of the Wood river country. The Pacific Iron Works' smelters, for both gal ena and copper ores, have worked a revolution in the smelting business of the country, and it made a success of many an enterprise that would have otherwise been a failure. The advantages demonstrated in these furnaces are facility and cheap ness of transportation and construc tion, economy of fuel, fineness of bullion produced, and capacity for continuous and uninterrupted work. Any ore that can be smelted, it is claimed, can be worked cheaper in in these furnaces than by any other process. The mining interests of the coun try arc largely indebted to the enter prise of this firm for working up to such a state of perfection this im portant branch of mining machinery. A large number of companies in Ar izona, New Mexico and Nevada are operating these furnaces with most satisfactory results. And we feel as sured that nothing will insure the success of our various smelting enterprises so much as the general adoption of these approved appli ances for treating ores. A TRAGEDY RECALLED. Unexpected Conviction of the Lawyer Who Shot Ex-Judge Thurmond in a Court Room. Dallas, Texas, May 7.—On March 14, 1882, Robert E. Cowart, a leading lawyer of this city, killed ex-Judge J. M. Thurmond in the County Court room. Thurmond was a well-known politician in this part of the State, was bitter in his hatreds, and a nat ural-born agitator. Great enmity had existed between Cowart and Thurmond, growing out of Cowart's appearing as counsel for the city when Thurmond was voted out (if the office of Mayor three years ago by the City Council. A bitter speech was delivered by Cowart in the can vass when Thurmond ran for Mayor to fill the vacancy caused by his re moval, and in which Thurmond was defeated. This bitterness was in creased in February last, when Thur mond entered thomunicipal canvass as a candidate for Alderman of the Second Ward. A small evening pa per, since suspended, contained a number of articles extremely bitter against Cowart and others, and no doubt existed that Thurmond was the author. The culmination came in the tragedy of March 14, when Cowart killed Thurmond. He was shot while advancing on Cowart with a heavy cane in his left hand, and in the act of drawing a pistol from his hip pocket with his right hand, ex claiming, "Draw, damn you; lam ready for you." Public sentiment was almost unanimously with Co wart, as it was believed that it was a clear case of self-defense. He was arrested and afterwards released on habeas corpus, with a bond of $800. The trial of ('owart on a charge of murder in the first degree came up on Monday last, and occupied all the week. Great interest has been man ifested in the proceedings, the court house being crowded all the time, night and day. It took over two days to get a jury, so many persons i had formed an opinion. The testi j mony was very favorable to Cowart, ! and when the ease was given to the jury on Friday night tho general opinion was that he would be ac quitted. Four brothers of Thur mond were present from various points in Texas and Arizona, and all the week the community has been listening to rumors that Cowart would be killed if acquitted. Con sequently Sheriff Jones had all his deputies, a number of special otli eers, and a part of the city police force on duty at the court house Friday night and j'esterday to pro tect the prisoner and preserve the peace. The jury could not agree Friday night, but yesterday morning thej' surprised everybody by render ing a verdict of guilty of murder in the second degree. The Court sen tenced Cowart to the penitentiary for seven years. Yesterday morning's Herald con tained a severe criticism of the jury, charging that some of them were drunk that night and not deliberat ing on the case. A reporter had gotten into an adjoining room and Hstened. When the jury heard of the publication they were very in dignant. They certified to the Court that no liquor was in the jury room. The Herald proprietors were fined $100 for contempt, and the jurymen are starting libel suits for damages. Cowart's counsel moved for a new trial, which came up for argument at 6 p. m. Meanwhile newspaper reporters investigated the charges against the jury, and soon traced three bottles of whisky to different jurymen, and the publication of the facts in the Evening Times added interest to the case. The motion for a new y-ial was argued before Judge Aldridge last night. The court house was packed, the most promi nent citizens being present. All necessary precautions were again taken. The motion was granted, and the spectators attempted to ap plaud, but the applause was sup pressed by the Court. After the adjournment Cowart received the congratulations of his friends. The new trial was granted on the ground that the verdict was not in accord ance with the evidence. BERNHARDT'S BRIDAL. Mhy She Finally Consented to Take a Husband. [S. F. Paper.] "Mamma, where is my fader?" " Sarah dropped her chizel in amazement. The impudence of her daughter was new and astonishing. "Mind your own business," she said angrily. "How do you suppose I know." The child began to blubber. " I want a fader; gimme a fader." " Keep your mous shut 't.ite bote," snapped her mamma. " E is in busi ness in Paree an" gone to New York art' mekkin trip to Algerie. How you suppose I can tell?" The child began to roar. She wanted a father to play with. All the other little girls had fathers, and she was going to have one if it took every lung in her body. Sarah called the nurse. Nanette gave her some bon bons; but bon bons were a drug in tiie youthful market. She was dissolv ing in tears and roaring like a toy pirate. Nanette said: " Mon Dieu, Ma dame. I can do nossing wiz her. She will have a fader or she will die." Sara knit her brows thoughtfully. " Lcmme see," she said. "It is many days since I am not in ze papers. Ze hemorrahe bizness is played out. Besides, it is copy of Clara Morns, which is unworzy of my genius. Dry oop, petite," she said affectionately to the child. " I git you a fader." " Ouieh one?" queried Nanette, wonderingly. " Damala. He is a Greek. Mek more talk. Go tell 'im." Damala came. He waved his hand with Grecian grace. "Whatta!" he said; "you ketcha de matterimo nia?" " Yes." " Whatta for?" " t or instans," and Sara laughed merrily. "Alla righta, my angela; I go fix." And the marriage bells chimed merrily, and all the world said " Bernhardt again," and the Bern bardt child was happy. An Editor in Heaven. A story is told of an editor who died and went to Heaven, but was | denied admittance, lest he might meet a delinquent subscriber and bad feelings be called up to the de triment of that peaceful abode. Huv ing to go somewhere, he went to the region of darkness, but was posi tively refused admittance, as the place was full of delinquent sub scribers. Wearily the poor editor turned back to the celestial city, and was met by the watchman at the portals, who smiled and said: "I was mistaken; you can enter; there isn't a delinquent subscriber in Heaven!"

A New Theory, the Soundness of Which Can Be Tested in this Section. The following curious communication, signed by J. Van Cleve Phillips, appears in a late issue of the London Mining Journal: In reading Fourier's Philosophy in a new book by Van Buren Denslow, called "Modern Thinkers," and having read Erasmus Darwin's "Love of the Plants" (Dublin, 17!*.>; grandfather of the late Darwin), I find inv idea of sex in min eral veins fortified'. M v study of the up per Mississippi lead fields was from 1st: to 1853, and of the Missouri lead fields from 1855 to 1880 : 1. Tho lead fields are basins of limestone, these being from 100 yards to five miles wide, and the vein system duplicated in each basin. 2. All the discoveries of ores in the upper Mis sissippi ami Missouri lead fields may he located geographically in the basin where they occur, and stratagraphieallv in the rock and family of veins to which they belong. The lead ores mined in these fields have yielded to date $150, 000,000 worth of lead, all of which has been taken from tho small basins, or along the edges of the larger ones, and is trom the edge of the vein system, and will not include 1-fiOth of 1 per cent, of the ores contained in the basins, as shown in my unpublished geological surveys of the upper and lower Missis sippi lead fields. It will he seen from this that tiic existence of lead and zinc is now known which will supply the people of tlie center of the continent with these metals when it shall have a population of 300 to tlie square mile, as England lias to-day. M.v first attention to the physical out line of the crystalliz; tion of lead ( re was in 1848, while superintending a lead fur nace in Wisconsin. The teams were bringing in ores from twenty different lead discoveries, having north and south veins, cast and west veins, and stratified veins from the rock and clay. The cast and west veins had regular cubes, the north and south veins had the edges of the cubes truncated, and the horizontal veins had the solid angles of the tubes cut off or truncated. The ores from the clay were amorphous, and this form of crystallization was duplicated in each lead basin. This went to establish the fact that tho lead-producing and crystal line action liad been directly connected with the vein system in all'p,arts of the lead basin; that the same force which had been exerted to till the vein system in one basin of limestone had duplicated that system in the adjacent basins, and the physical outline of the ore was an in dex of its geographical and stra Digraph i eal position in the basin. Afterwards I was led to the conclusion that the north and south veins were the positive or male veins, and the j;as* and west the negative or female veins. The north and south veins were few in number, the east and west veins many, and the north and south veins always pointed low aids the basins of the east and west veins. This law is noticed in tin animal and vegetable kingdoms, in the sheep and goat families, and in the cherry and apple trees, the males being in the minority . In applying this law to iron ores we sup, ose the magnetic ores are the positive or male ores, other varieties the nega tive or female ores. In the silver fields the Comstock, being a north and south vein, would be a positive or male vein, and the east and west ' lens of New Mexico and old Mexico the negative or female veins. The great vein known as San Pie tro, in the town of Hidalgo del Par ral, is an east and west vein; also the largest and richest mine worked at the old Spanish mining town of lode, in the State of Durango, Mex ico, and known as the Del Aqua (water mine), is an east and west vein. I am not sufficiently ac quainted with the courses of the veins in the mountain States to ap ply this law of sex to the vein sys tem of the numerous silver and gold bearing fields, yet I have identified it in tiie vein system of the upper and lower lead fields of the basin of the Mississippi, and feel assured that it can be applied to all the fam ilies of veins which, as a rule, are aggregated around a central knob or Boofa, which forms the water shed of individual families of veins, and which families as aggregated form the great stellar silver' belt from Montana south through New and Old Mexico, and that by close ob servation the explorer and miner may profit by its application. A GOOD DISTINCTION. An Arizonian Who Thinks that there arc Cowboys and Cowboys. To the Editor of the Sun —Sir: I notice in the morning Washington dispatches that tho President, on the advice ot the Cabinet, has determin ed to issue a proclamation calling upon the cowboys of Arizona to dis band, and in the event of their re fusal, to turn loose the army upon them. Being myself an Arizonian, and recently from there, and know ing the situation, and also to whom the epithet cowboy is applied, I was much amused at this threatened pro nunciamento. Tho term cowboy is a Texas name applied to men who are employed on cattle ranches. In Arizona, every man who wears big spurs, a broad bat. and the legs of his pantaloons stuffed into his boots is called a cowboy, and for the most part they are employed njioii ranches as vaqueros, herding cattle. There is no organization among them. Yet the President orders them to dis band. What does he mean? Is it that they must put on white shirts and engage in other pursuits? The proclamation will bo directed against one of the most important industries of the Territory—stock raising. If the army is to be used to hunt down criminals, why not say so, and not by proclamation insult and slander hundreds of law-abiding citizens en gaged in cattle raising? In conclus ion, permit me to say that this whole thing is claptrap and buncombe. Nkw Y'ouk, "May 3. Cochise.
