A EASE AROHEOLOGIOAL TlSfc.

Mr. Gariick, of tho Cashing party,
brought in from Seneca this week a in ist
remarkable find ubtaiivd from S. E. Day
in the San Juan country that will open the
eyes of those ethnologists who deny man's
great unticpiity on this continent,.
It is well known even to casual observ
ers that there have been two distinct flows
of lava in this country between which
hero has elapsed many centuries of time.
I he late-t ih.'.v of lava IB so anc ient that
water, as for instance, in the Zuni Cifion,
lias cut through it to the depth of three
The spi-cine n Mr. Garlic showed us be

piece of irregular shaped lava whie.b has,
beyond question, flown onto a pile of com.
Id this specimen lire to be found tho me
m int, of mai-.v ears of corn, tho grain in
dentations being clearly maiked. -Theie
is abo in this lava charred coin, perfect as !
though burned but yesterday. There can
he no question as to the antiquity of th'.n
coin. Us history is ind. hblv written in
h.v.i, hard as adamant, and certainly more
thousands of years oi l than human his
tory has iwir recorded. This specimen
Mr. Garlick estimates as beyond value for
archeology. The fact established by tins
specimen is that civilization existed here
at the time of tho first flow of lava, as
corn does net grow without tho labor ot

Yuma See t": Tho wild hemp which
grows so lux'iH mtly on tho Colorado river
bottom land will bo of preut valuó in the
near inline. Experimental tests havo
proven the I b o of tho wild hemp to be
superior to t'iat.of jute, tul the cheapness
with which it, can bo laid down in the Cal
ifornia main-tt is another great advantage.
Xkw Me- lean: In the ease of the Unit
ed Siates v , J. French Cooper, the local
land office lias just ri ndeted a decision.
Cooper ma Jo a pre-emption filing on the
I'ecos rier. the land carrying valuable
timber, ai d he was charged with having
taken up tie: lanel for tho purpose chiefly
of eeo'.iinp the timber. Tho United
States limlur agent reported tho entry for
r.aiice'ilaliin; tho entry was accordingly
snspeme d and a hearing ordered. Testi
mony was taken and the local office now
decides that Mr. Cooper is shown to hn.'e
substantially con.pli'd with tlie law. The
evidenn shows tint Cooper cleared the
laud of timber for the purposo of carrying
cut the provisions of the pre-emption act,
using what timber he could in improviug
bis place an l sidling the surplus, which he
clearly had a right to do. Indictments for
alleged cutting of public timber are pend
ing before the courts, and this decision by
the local land ofliV will haye an important
bearing upon these cases.
