DID HE SHOOT HIMSELF?
A Sheep Herder Named Elario
Meets His Death in a
Strong Evidences of Murder Contrary
to Ills IlyliiK Statement That
lie Shot Himself.
A niysteroiis shooting occurred on
Snturdny Inst nt tho sheep ranch of
Wm. Nollis seven miles from Williams.
A Mexican lierder named Elario com
mencotl woik for Mr. Nellis on thai
day and in tho evening ho camo to tlit
ranch cabin and stated to the Mexican
in charge that ho was shot and that hi
did it himself. Tlio ball entered the
leftside of tho nose and passed down
ward and lodged in the shoulder.
Tho wounded man was placed in a
wagon and started for Wil Sams, bu
bo expired when about half way there.
On the arrival of tho j a'tyin Williams
the story told of the self shooting was
not believed, as the nature of the
wound was such as could not bo pro
duced ly accident, or such a one as a
suicide would likely inllict. On Sun
day morning a party headed by Deputy
ShciitT Frank Morales visited the camp
and followed the trail the herder had
taken the day before but could not And
his gun, hat or coat, which wero miss

man was murdered, hut for what leason
is unknown as he had no enemies so
far as know n.
Weekly Itcxlow of Trade.
New York, Nov. 21 K. G. Dim &
Go's, market review says: Much has
happened of lato to depress business
and shake confidence and jet couii
dcuee is not shaken and the volume of
business is still close to the greatest
ever attained. Prices are settling
downward with enoimous production,
but tho fact that such production con
tinues shows that the low pi ices are
not ruinous. Alarm about the money
mat ket has passed and no distuibancu
is apprehended this year. The indus
tries are on tho whole well employ ed
and it is especially- noteworthy this
week that thuro is a better tone in
branches of trade which hae been
most embarrassed. The money mar
ket of the country is well supplied for
legitimate needs, but in some points
1 'speculative money" is tight. E
1 ports of merchandise from New York
in three weeks of November has been
1 $20,201,719 in value, an inete.iso of
j 33 per cent., while impotts for Nocm
Iber thus far are about 10 percent,
'smaller than a year ago. which amounts
to an enormous balance to be settled
by other countries in specie. One
danger is that a gieat quantity of
w heat is now buried abroad as well as
in this country, on margins and loans
and there is a possibility that much of
a decline might casucsomu trouble.

i;VAIA AND ARIZONA.
A strong effort is being made to ad
vance tiie cause of statehood iu Arizo
na by citing what Nevada has done iu
the way of maintaining such a foim of
government on a population of 16,000
people and a total tax roll of about
thiity million dollars. The fact that
for every dollar that Nevada owes Ari
zona owes four is carefully concealed.
Yet, with this small indebtedness and
with a larger assessment roll than Ari
zona, Nevada, during its existence as
a state, lias found it necessary to raise
the enormous sum of two million dol
lars by a direct tax upon the output of
its mines. Every ounce of gold, every
ounce of silver, every ounce of metal
mined has and is to-day paying this
tribute. Statehood made such a tax
necessary in Nevada and it will do the
sanio in Arizona. Nevada's decadence
as u mining state can be traced in the
annual collection of this tax. From
tiie fit st year of its imposition when it
amounted to hundreds of thousands of
dollars it gradually declined into thous
ands because mines and mining capital
could not atfoid to become interested
in the development of a country where,
in addition to paying a tax on all their
pi opet ty similar to that paid by the
merchant or fanner, they had to pay a
tax ou what their labor and capital
produced. It is for tho miners of Aii
zona to say by their votes on tho con
stitution whether such a state of nlfairs
shall be brought about in Arizona. If
Ne ada, with a larger tax roll than
Aiizona, and witli a smaller indebted
ness, wasfoiced to impost! such an ad
ditional burden on its miners will not
Aiizona be compelled to do tho same?
It is simply a matter of computation.
So much additional will be lequiicd
for government expenses. Tho stock
man, tho mei chant, tho rancher and
the miner are to-day forced to strain
every nerve to meet tho present bur
den of taxation. What will they do
when to tho taxes now ex'sting those
of statehood aio added? Already tho
rate of taxation in Arizona is higher
than in any other territory or state iu
the Union. It is so high that capital
is ftiglitened by it. With some of the
richest mineral country in tho world
money cannot bo obtained 4o open our
mines on account of it. Let a new tax
of even a mill be placed on the product
of our mines and men will grow gray,
bald and diu in despair befote Arizona
will over liecomo tho milling country
that nature intended. To no section
in tho tcriitory would such a tax bo so
disastious as to Yavapai county, and
the men who nro now urging state
hood should seo it. A voto for state
hood in Yavapai comity means simply
a voto for new and higher taxes, and
the sooner its citizens realize tho better.

Tho Wool Market.
The following icport from Boston
shows tho condition of tho market at
the closo of the week:
Tho total receipts of wool at this
poi t during tho past week comprise
8304 bags and bales domestic and
2530 bales foreign, against 10,088 bags
and bales domestic and 900 bales for
eign for the samo time last year. The
total receipts since Jan. 1, 1891 i com
prise 504.8G9 bags and bales domestic
and 148,738 bales foreign, against
152,053 bags and bales domestic and
100,702 bales of foreign for the same
time in 1890.
The sales for the week comprise 1,
382,800 lbs of domestic llecco and pull
ed, and 555,500 lbs foreign, making
the week's transactions foot up 1,937,
300 lbs, against 2,470,200 lbs for the
previous week, and 2,075,000 lbs do
mestic and 281,000 lbs foreign for t he
corresponding week last year.
Tho demand for wool is still very
tpiiet, and the transactions the past
week havo been the smallest for some
time. There are no buyers on the
market operating to any extent. Some
representatives of the large mills have
been looking around tho past week,
but have bought very little. Notwith
standing the quietness prices cannot be
said to be quotably lower, though they
lean rather in favor of the buyers, but
as yet they are not wholly in their
favor. The presence of these large
buyers on the market has something
to do with the steadiness to prices, for
most dealers believe that they are go
ing to buy some wool before a great
while and consequently are holding
their stock for present quotations.
This is the tendency with most dealers
just now, but tho continued dullness is
rather discouraging. Some of them
havo given up hope of any improve
ment either iu business or pries and
aro shading prices to clfcct sales. Tli it
seems to be about the otily way by
which wool can be moved just now
and at concessions buyers do not take
hold. In fact they do not seem to
waut any great quantity of wool, con
fining their purchases to such small
lots as they have immcdinU- need. f
and nobody seems to lie buying ahead.
As a general thing dealers aro asking
tho prices quoted but these aro being
shaded and doubtless many of tho
sales reported this week on private
terms are at a grain under quotations.
As wo said last week, thcro is nothing
apparent to indicate any serious break
in prices, while on the other hand it
win laKe an iniproveu tiemauu to Keep
prices on a steady basis.
Tho market on line fleeces is very
dull and no sales of any consequence
aro reported this week. Owing to the
lack of demand prices aro rather easy
as stocks aro liberal, but most dealers
arc holding their wool, tho general
asking price of XX and above Ohio
being 3031c and Ohio X at 29c.
Michigan and other llccces aro very
quiet also, but Michigan X is held at
26J27c and No. 1 at 3334c. De
laine fleeces hold very steady, but
sales are limited. No. 1 clothing and
combing grades, however, ere in mod
erate supply and firm. One good sale
of Ohio delaine was mado this week at
35c, an outside price. Unwashed
wools arc very quiet and prices aro
easy except on t blood. Pulled wools
have been moving fairly, but nearly
all sales aro in small lots and at easy
prices. There has been a moderately good
movement in territory wools this week
but prices aro only fairly steady. The
dull trade causes holders to feel more
liko moving their wool and undoubted
ly concessions can bo obtained on large
lots. Tho scorned basis for lino and
fino medium strong warp wools holds
at 6862c, with medium at about 53
55c. Off grades havo to sell down
from these figures as to quality. Thcso
wools aro uow staple iu the market,
and in mauy instances have taken the
place of fleeces to a great extent.
Texas wools aro very quiet probably
owing to their high cost. Very little
doing in California wools.

General Grant's liody.
New Yohk, Nov. 19 A Washing
ton special to the Tribune says: "Tho
effort to remove tho body of General
Grant fiom Riverside to the Arlington
national cemetery will bo renewed at
the coming session of congress. Tho
friends of tho removal have been
quietly but actively and zealously at
work. Some of the objections then
raised have been overcome and con
siderable confidence is expressed that
tho attempt this w inter will be crowned
w itli success. That there i a strong
sentiment in favor of the movement
among the veterans of the union armies
is well as among the officers of tho
