Tho necessity of a business direc tory of Arizona is apparent to all, ouo containing the name and address of every person engaged in business In tho territory, tho post ofllees, express ofliccs, a brief decriptiou of each town and camp, with a map of tho territory. Such a book would be of great value to every merchant and professional man in Arizona. Messrs. Funston & Smart, of this place, have commenced tho compilation of a directory, which they propose to make complete, concise and reliable. Solicitors for subscription and advertisements arc now at work, and they will travel throughout the territory, commenciug with the citi zens of Flagstaff. The commissioner of Indian affairs recommends the abolishing of reserva tions. In his annual report ho says: "Whatever right and titlo the Indians have in them is subject to and must yield to tho demands of civilization. They should be protected in the per manent possession of all this land that is necessary to their own support, and whatever is ceded by them should be paid for at Its full market value. Hut it cannot be expected under any cir cumstances that these reservations can remain intact, hindering tho progress of civilization, requiring an army to protect them from tho encroachments of homo seekers, and maintaining a perpetual abodeof savagery and animal ism."

NEW YOBK LETTER, New Yoiik, Oct. 31,1891. Special Correspondence. There was a new train, called tho Empire State Express" started on tho New York Contrail?. R., on Monday, and it is undoubtedly the fastest train on earth. It made u record of its first tiipto HutYalo, which puts it in tho lead of all fast trains. It left tho Grand Central Depot on Monday at 'J:01. It, thundered through tunnels and dashed over bridges, and linally came to a stand in Huil'alo, having run the distance of 440 miles hi eight hours, thirty-nine and half minutes, half a minute faster than tho schedule called for. This is mi average of .12-J miles an hour. This achievement Is all tho moie wonderful when the weight of the train is considered. Tho engines and ears weighed a total of 288 tons, nearly 100 tons more than tho famous 11 ing Scotchman, which maintains an aver age of 61.G-10 miles an hour between Loudon and Edinburgh a distanco of 400 miles. At one point between Butavai and HulTalo, u .speed of 70 miles an hour was reached. There was no jar, no violent swaying from side to side, no swinging of tho wheels from the rails on sharp curt es. But tho train seemed to glide along, as if it were runniuir over a sea of oil, or flying through the air. The train is intended as an accom modation between New York, Albany, Syracuse and Hufl'alo, but later on, if it is a success, it will probably bo run to Chicago, and anothertraiu made up, running East at the same time. Passengers on the Seventh Avenue surface lino hi this city have com plained for a long tiino of the reckless manner in which drivers guide their cars around sharp curves at the lower part of tho road. A singular accident seut John Dowell, oneof the Company's drivers to St. Vincent's hospital on Saturday night, with a horribly gashed skull and many bruises. On that evening the car which Dow ell was driving turned the curve at Sullivan and Third streets, so rapidly, that Dowell was thrown from the plat form and dragged under the wheels. Tho conductor who saw Dowell thrown, got off the ear, and when he saw the driver lying under it, ho faiuted. A gentleman who was in the ear at the time said, "I felt ajar and saw the conductor leave the car, and when I alighted a moment afterwards there was a horrible sight the driver under the front w heels covered with blood, ami the conductor, who fainted lying beside him." The house surgeon at St. Vincent's hos pital said that Dowell had a wonderful escape. The ear wheel evidently passed over his head, and the marks of the flange of tho wheel were plainly isi blo on his skull. Tho man was sent homo not fatally but seriously hurt. Returns from the railroads aud fer ries show that 79,417,010 passengers rossed the Hudson river during tho year 1890. There arc over 300 pas senger trains dally, iu and out of Jersey City and Hobokcn, and over 100 mil lion tons of freight crossed the river to iindfroni tho City of Ihcw lork nml eastern states, lhe number oi pas sengers carried on the ferries between Now York and Brooklyn during tho -.. nn ..i, rti MM... year lo'JU was oo,uuo,ouy, j-h Brooklyn Bridgo carried during the same year 37,070, 111. A big haul of ''green goods" litera ture was made hero the other day. A regular printing establishment was found, besides over 60,000 printed cir culars, 20,000 of which were in en velopes, addressed and stamped ready for delivery. The majority of tho In tended victims are lcsldentsof Canada. In several cities where tho ''green good" men had branch offices, tho de tectives also secured books containing tho names of thousands of business limn. Another book eontaiued tho names of men with whom correspond' euco had been opened, or closed, as ,i.naiii. tin! names stood letters and numbers used in cipher dispatches, There were- also many railway and nnstnflir?.guides and circulars printed in French! Ill fi'Ultlou to piles of paper used as green goods filfer (brown paper with greenish edges) the detec tives came upon a complete outllt for opium smoking. Tho names of tho men arrested in connection with this scheme, were, Frank Brooks, alias 'Pretty Frank" aud Tcrenco Murphy, alias "Poodlo Murphy," A cable dispatch from London states that tho White Star Lino Steamer "Teutonic" has again beaten the east ward Atlantic record. Her timo was five days tvventy-ono hours and three minutes. Her greatest dally run was. 4SS miles ou the flrot day out. . This is a remarkable passago even for the '.'Teutonic," at a period of tho year which has been excessively stormy, though it should be considered that possibly the recent powerful westerly gales helped her forward more than tho opposing gales retarded her. She took the northern route which Is the shortest, and tho cyclones and gales are of shorter duration, than in tho southern and longer route. Dispatches were received at London yesterday from Japan announcing that tho telegraph wires beyond Hiogo and Osaka were down. It was. added that there had been an earthquake at Hiogo, and the rumor was current that a great amount of property had been destroyed, and that tho loss of lifo had been considerable. Hiogo is a seaport town on tho is land of Hondo, and is about twenty two miles from Osaka aud is adjacent to Kobe. It is lighted with gas and has a number of fine buildings, includ ing a townvhall, a Custom House, and GovcinmeutSnaehine shops. The sea port refei red to has an extensive for eigu and coastwise trade, and a popu lation in 1881 of about 40,000 souls. A private telegram dated Hiogo re ceived in this city last night confirms the report conveyed in former tele grams, that a disastrous earthquake shock has occurred in Japan. This telegram says that a severe shock was felt at Osaka, and that the destruction of both life and property was very great. So severe was the shock that a number of houses were thrown to the ground, and many of tho occupants were caught in the falling buildings and crushed to death. A largo num ber of persons succeeded in escaping from their tottering homes, only to meet death in the streets, to which they had Hied for safety from tho falling debris. There are uo means at present of es timating the total loss of life. In fact, the detail? of the catastrophe are ver.v meagre as all the telegraph wires in the districts affected were bioken by the falling of poles, which were thrown down by these'tsmic disturbance. The above mentioned private dispatch, however, says that it is known that in Osaka alone, the death list contains the names of 300 residents of the city. Wall Street has come to the conclu sion that there will not be a revival of public interest in the stock market un til after the elections. Iu consequence, the professional element, vvlitell at the moment is the most important aggrcs ivc force in the market, sells stocks and endeavors to persuade speculative holders to abandon their holdings. Tho oh lv argument tho bears can ad duce in their favor is the apathy of the nubile. That imiiortant contingent was evidently frightened away by the passing of tho Missouri Pacific's divi dend, but in time tho effect of that event will probably wear a.vay. In tho meantime the advocates of lower prices are making all the capital they can of minor untoward events. The latest of these, thecomplicalions grow ing out-of tho tragic termination of the career of a prominent Boston oper ator, is being perniciously magnified. As a matter of fact tho Boston bank officials are more responsible for this than tho bears of the market. - In London the stock market has been dull for the past week with the excep tion of American bonds tho demand for which increases diily. Large amounts of Atchinson, Reading and Erie bonds changed hands. In tho live stock market the latest receipts of beeves were 1,1 15 head, in cluding lifty-seven cars for tho market and six ears direct to slaughterers. Fifty cars had remained unsold in tho pens from last Monday.imiklng 107 cars for sale. Tho trading was more active, but prices were not much higher, aud tweuty-fivo cars wero left unsold. Poorest to best nativ e steers sold at ?3.05, at $5.40 per hundred pounds. Texans and Colorados at ?3.05 at 3.80; bulls and dry cows at $2.00 1.25 at $2.75.

Tiosl, occurnd every mouth IJ7 72a 208' night- dmlns tlio STATEHOOD. While voting on tho constitution the peoplo should be allowed tho privilege of expressing their views as to whether or not they are in favor of statehood. Voters who aro In favor of Arizona as a state will feel a delicacy in voting for or against I ho constitution. Wo think that there should be two tickets in tho Held; one for or against the constitu tion, aud oao for or against statehood. Citize'a. Tho information comes from a resi dent of Tucson who claims to know tho facts, that the Calabasas Water Storage Compauy does not intend to construct u reservoir: that is if tho constitution is adopted they will se cure property rights that will enable them to float their schemo in tho Eng lish market at big figures. Judge Barnes is interested in that corpora tion, and his advocacy of tho water article of tho constitution is doubtless sincere. Enterprise. Tho clap-trap that if tho constitu tion is not ratified the admission of Arizona will bo delayed five years is altogether too thin. New Mexico re jected a constitution hist year and It is now reported that tho president in his message to congress will recommend that steps be taken for its admission. The rejection of tho constitution has not delayed the admission of that Tei ritory a single day. There isono thing that is as sure as the advance of time, and that is Arizona will never be ad mitted Into the Union with its pres ent unjust constitution, even though it receives tho approval of tho people at the pollt. Tho interested parties try ing to control all tho water supply are the only enemies to statehood. En terprise. Late news from the capital city, (which is erroneously inscribed on Territorial maps as Phumix,) announces a caucus of democratiebosses who think and act as though the party of the Ter ritory was bound to become corn to their mill, but as their mill is and over shot, built on a spring branch, the will be long in discovering that the power is wholly inadequate to run the machinery of tho party of the Terri tory. They are credited with having entered M.uk Smith, of Tombstone, aud Dr. 11. A. Hughes, of Fhojuix, as senatorial eandidarcs in tho event of Arizona becoming a State. In this they seem to have overlooked the fact that there is a central and northern Aiizoua likely to claim representation, iu that fog bank, thoSeuate, and which, consequently, will not look vv ith favor upon tho action of bosses at tho capital. They, however, are a little premature in expressing a preference. It would have been better for them to have bottled and corked their choco of candi dates until Arizona becomes a State.

Reports of tho Committee Appointed to Secure Counsel. The citizens of Flagstaff Townsito met at tho office of N. G. Laytou on Oct. 29th, for tho purpose of hearing the report of the committee appointed Oct 2Gth, to nssist tho Trustee in pre paring a plan of defense and securing counsel in tho case of Emma Gonzales vs. J. E. Jones, Trustee of Flagstaff Towiisitc. The meeting was called to order by J. C. Grimm, chairman. The report of the committee was read by the secretary as follows: We, your committee, appointed at the Townsito meeting held Monday evening Oct. 20, 1891, for tho purpose of conferring with tho Probate Judge and assisting him in preparing a mode of defense in tho case of Emma Gonzales, vs. J. E. Jones, Trustee ot tho Flagstaff Townsite, beg leave to recommend: First That a permaiicut chairman and secretary bo appointed or elected at this meeting; also that a propel record book bo purchased, and all records and proceedings of meetings relating to the above entitled ease be inserted therein aud that said record book bo deposited with tho Probate Judge and his successors iu office for safo keeping when not in actual use. Second We find that in procuring counsel, money is necessary, and there fore we recommend that an assessment he levied pro rata according to valua tion, on every possessor and claim ant of, Townsite property whether tiled on, patented or otherwise. Third That a finance committee of three bo selected to levy an assess ment to receive subscriptions and draft a proper instrument iu writing foi subscriptions, sufficiently binding to render tho propel ty of each subscribe! liable for the prompt payment of the amount subscribed; and that one-third of the amount assessed be paid to said committee at once, not later than Mon day Nov. 2, 1891, and the balance ol said amount on demand of said com mittee. Foui th Wo further recommend that a committee of three or five be selected, for the procuring of counsel to answer and defend the said case iu tho U. S. District Court and in anv other court. Fifth We recommend that the finance committee be authorized and directed by the adoption of these reso lutions, to turn over to the committee appointed for the procuring of counsel .ill funds as soon as collected, (aking a receipt therefore aud that if the amount collected be not expended in procuring counsel aud conducting said case, that said conmittceappointeo to procure counsel, refund all monies not expended in defending this cast pro rata to each individual entitled to (ho same. Sixth We recomend that an amount of $1,000 bo raised by assessment to procure counsel and to conduct tin defense of this case.

Beasley, J. F. Daggs, Georgo Babbitt and J. It. Treat were retained as a committee t procure counsel and assist the Trustee in preparing a defense according to tho report of the committee. . Meeting adjourned subject to tho call of tho Trustee. The Horse It race. The horse race on Saturday last drew a large crowd. The race was between D. F. Stanfield's sorrel horse, "Fox" and Hiram Smith's black, known as' tin Utah horse. Tho owners of the fa. t stock aro stockmen living iu the south ern part of the count-, and the race was for lift- head of cattle on each side. Tho race has been on for some time and tho cowboys in that section wero interested, and had bet theii year's earning on the result. Tho sor rel horse was the favorite from tho start aud tho day of the race two to one bels wero offered on tho favorite. The raco was over a quarter mile track in the Held south of town and the sor rel horse was an easy winner, bcatiug the black by fifty feet. It is said that about two thousand changed hands on the raco. At tho Townsito meeting held Tues day evening, tho balance, (97.00) now in tho hands of the Trustee was voted to be expended on the "Town Ditch." .i r f Tho Holbrook Killing. On Tuesday morning of last week at about 4 o'clock, Roman Lopez and Rafael Chaves, two wealthy sheep raisers from Concho, were killed by Joseph Crawford and W. C. Bell. The affray took place in Pickett's sa loon. Lopez and Chaves had the day previous disposed of a large quantity of wool, and with other Mexicans were making a night of it. The trouble arose over a game of moute and (lining tho row Crawfoid and Hell wero pretty roughly handled by tho Mexicans and were getting the worst of the fight when Crawford drew his pistol and killed two of his antagonists, Lopez and Chaves. The rest beat a hasty le trcat. After the shooting Crawford aud Bell mounted their horses and rode off. At the coroners inquest it was developed that Crawford did tho shoit- ing aud that Bell had only a hand iu the general row. Crawford is well known by all stockmen and was in the employ of W. C. Hill of Springer, N. M. Bell has for the past year been at work for the Aztec company. A war rant has been issued for the arrest of Crawford. He has been seen in com pany with Bell since the shooting in tho neighborhood of Winslow. His capture is considered doubtful although every effort is being made to get him. Roman Lopez and Rafael Chaves were prominent among the Mexican population and were well and favorably Known iu Apache county. Thecitizens of Holbrook regrpt the unfortunate affair although none of the parties con cerned in the affray wero residents of that place. A Ucer that Gets Drunk. A citizen of Winslow owns a pet deer that has' the run of the town. "Dick" as he is called. Is a general favorite, and is at liberty to enter any if the places of business. Dick's fav jrite resort, howev er, is iu the saloons, .vhere ho will drink the contents of the vessel that catches the drippings from the beer keg, and will sometimes take something stronger, but his favorite .leverage is beer and when he gets his lose into a beer glass he never takes t out until the cup is drained. "Dick" Iocs not often get under the influence if tanglefoot when he confines him self to his favorite tipple, but on sev eral occasions he has been induced to ni his drinks. The antics indulged u arc not unlike those of tho average uiman brute who takes a first class jag" on. Dick's appetite for his new .oiind beverage is on tho increase aud t Is feared that lie will go the demui lou Ijovv-wows w ith fearful rapidity.' Vt present he is fat and sleek and his ags have uo appreciable effect on him. There is more Catarrh in this section if the country than all other diseases jut together, and until the last few , ears was supposed to be incurable, or a great many years doctors pro umnced it a local disease, and pre icribcd local remedies, and by cou .tantly failing to cure with local treat nent, pronounced it incurable. Science las proven catarrh to bo a constitu ional disease, and therefore requires 'oustitutioual treatment. Hall's Ca arrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
