Measures Proposed for the Pro
tection of Arizona Cattlemen.
From the Prescott Miner.
The Territorial Stockmen's
Convention, which will meet m
Prescott on the 2fith instant, will
be called on to consider chiefly a
number of proposed legislative
bills prepared nnder the direction
of the Pima County Stock Associa
tion, copies of which have been
sent to all the other local organ
izations of a similar character in
the lerritory. Chief among this
batch of bills is one providing "for
the protection of livestock raisers "
It provides for the recording of
brands and ear-marks, with the
county recorder of the county in
which tho owner resides; that
cattle driven through the Terri
tory must have uniform brand;
that no two brands in any county
shall be alike, and no person
shall be permitted to have more
than one brand or oar-mark, and
defines in detail what shall con
stitute larceny of stock. It
makes it a trespass for any one to
herd a drove of animals on lands
occupied by another for agricultu
ral or grazing purposes. It pro
vides an action of trespass
against any person who shall
trespass upon the rights of those
who have first appropriated the
use of water in springs or streams
on the public domain, or dug wells
thereon. The bill makes it un
lawful for any person to kill,
butcher or slaughter any horned
cattle that shall not have been
branded in his brand, for at least
thirty days after it is captured.
The quarantine bills consist of two
one "To prevent the introduction
of diseased cattle," and the other
"To prevent the introduction of
cattle from infected districts"
into the Territory of Arizona.
Tho former makes it unlawful to
drive or transport any cattle into
the Territory, which havo been
afiected with or exposed to any
contagious disease within twelve
months prior to the period at
which it is sought to introduce
them. The Governor shall
appoint an inspector at such con
venient points as he shall deem
proper, whose duty it shall be to
inspect all cattle seeking ingress
to the Territory, and if, upon
such inspection, he shall find the
cattle proper to bo admitted, ho
shall grant a certificate to that
effect He shall for his services
be entitled to receive a fee of one
dollar for every thoroughbred
inspected and twenty cents per
head upon all other cattle for the
first 1,000 or under, and ten cents
per head on all over that number,
the fee to be paid by the owner of
the cattle. Every violation of
this act is punishable by a fine of
55,000. The act "to prevent tho
introduction of cattle.'rom infect
ed districts" provides that it shall
be unlawful to drive through or
into the Territory of Arizona any
cattle from Texas, Arkansas, or
any of the States bordering on the
Gulf of Mexico, or the Pecos
river in New Mexico, or cattle
which have been in tho above re
gions within twelve months last
preceding the time when it is
sought to introduco such cattle,
except during the months of De
cember and January only. Such
cattle, however, may be trans
ported through the Territory by
rail at any timo of the year, sub
jest to certain restrictions to pre
vent their contaminating local
herds. The penalty for violation
of this law is 5,000 fine, for each
offense, and liability for all
damages that may ensue there
from. An Act "to provide for a
general rodeo and other pur
poses," provides that the stockmen
of each county shall elect on the
2d Monday in January of each
year, at the Court House of each
county, three commissioners of
rodeos, who shall divide the coun
ty in rodeo districts and appoint
an inspector over each district.
A general rodeo shall be held in
each county, between September
1st and December 15th of each
year, due notice of the time and
place in each, district to be given
by publication The inspector of
the rodeo may decide all disputes
arising as to the ownership of
any animal, subject to appeal to
the district court All unmarked
neat cattle, the mothers of which
are unknown, shall be considered
the property of the range on
which they are found, unless
proof is produced to the contrary.
The carrying of fire-arms or the
use of intoxicating liquor at a
rodeo are prohibited, and violation
of this provision is punished by a
fine of not less than $25, nor more
than 50. All fines so collected to
go to the school fund.
Christmas superstitions take
many forms. Though the day
was not much observed in Scot
land, it used to be considered
unlucky to spin, as causing cattle
to go mad and lame. Bread baked
on Christmas Eve is said never to
grow moldy. Zule dough kept
unbroken through the. year is a
preservative against perils by fire,
water or sword, and the Normans
thought from mad dogs also. The
crumbs kept till spring and mixed
with corn, the Danes and Poles
give as medicine for horses and
cattle. ' To this day, in many parts
of Wales, eleven Christmas pud
dings are boiled, one for each of
the apostles except Iscariat The
last is only to be eaten as the year
is up, to insure good luck In
Devonshire a hot cake dipped in
cider is taken to the orchard and
deposited in the forked branch of
an apple tree, while guns are fired
and cider thrown into the air, the
company singing the while:
Bear good apples and pears.
Barns full, bags f uil, sacks full.
Hoping thereby to secure a plenti
ful fruit year, and should the sun
shine on Christmas day they look
upon it as an augury of an abun
According to folk-lore it is
considered lucky for the festival
to fall on Sunday, bringing strong
winds, but a fair, dry summer, and
greatness to children born on that
day; unlucky on Saturday, in
which case old people will die, as
well as children born on thetmni
versary. Fruit and corn will fail
and the winter be severe and
tempestuous. Then there are tho
Rich man's food and
Poor man's hunger.
The people of Kronz, on the
Moselle, wrap a wheel in straw
and rolling it down hill on fire,
augur whether they are to have a
good vintage. It is supposed to
be favorable if it reaches the
water alight Straw strewn as it
used to-be in churches at Christ
mas time, was deemed the best
preventive against sleeplessness
and the best protection to fruit
Christmas charms and love
oracles have peculiar . efficacy.
While the German maiden melts
wax into water through the end of
a key, hoping thereby to discover
the form of her future husband;
or, with her companions, taps at
the door of the hen-house, fully
persuaded that she to whom the
cock crows in response will be
first married ; or, not content with
this, names four onijns after her
several suitors, and determines
which will be the favored wooer
by the one that sprouts before
the twelfth night; the Russian
girls place each her separate heap
of grain on the floor and know
that the owner of whichever the
cock selects to eat from will be
first a wif In all countries,
venturesome maidens have peered
alone into the glass, or, being
more courageous still, looked into
a well at Christmas midnight,
hoping to see the face of him who
is to rule their lives. The Yule
log has been beset with Christmas
superstitions and observances
ever since those Scandmavain
feasts in honor of the god, Thor.
Round it old feuds were for
gotton, as the liquor bubbled in
the wassail bowl amid singing,
shouting and merriment It was
secured, charred, and brought
home long before, and finally
lighted with a brand from that of
last year, which was carefully pre
served as a charm against fire.
Indeed, in Yorkshire, a portion of
it thrown upon the fire, was
supposed to have the power of
allaying storms. In France,
cherry, plum or oak are the woods
chosen, and, sprinkled with salt
and water, many healing proper
ties are ascribed to them. In
Devonshire it is formed ' of ash
faggots bound together, and for
every crack in burnig, the master
is supposed to furnish an addf
tional draught of beer or cider.
Travelers raised their hats to the
Yule log as it was brought in2
and it was considered a bad omen
if a squinting person, a flat footed
woman, or any one with bare feet
entered while it was -burning.
All who helped to bring it were
guaranteed against spells of
every kind.. It might, if feasible,
be kept lighted till Candlemas
day, when all Christmas decora
tions must bo swept away, for as
many leaves as are left so many
goblins will appear and a death in
the house will be 6ure to ensue.
When the Yule log is lighted
Yule candles should be burned,
which must be extinguished by
the oldest person present, and no
snuffers on any account must
be used. At St John's College,
Oxford, a large stone candle
socket ornamented with figures,
still remains for the Yule candle
burned at high table for twelve
nights of Christmas-tide, a piece
being always retained for New
Year's day. Ex.
A Good Word.
The "Exposition Iowan," a
paper published at the World's
Exposition, in Now Orleans, by
the Iowa representatives there, has
this to say of the exhibits from
this Territory: "So far there has
been little written or said con
cerning the part the Territory of
Arizona is going to take in the
exposition, but commissioner
Frank Murphy, of Prescott, i9
carefully prpparing an exhibit
that is going to bo a surprise to a
majority and a pleasure to all
observers. By a recent visit to the
Arizona space, in the north end of
Government building, we wore
convinced of this fact An
erroneous impression prevails to
the effect that the Territory.is
altogether a mountainous and
desert country. No report could
be more unjust or remote from
the truth, as is effectually proven
by the display. It is blessed with
fine farming lands, and one of the
finest climates imaginable, by
which its agricultural products
are enabled to rival those of the
wonderful mines which made it
famous. The Arizona exhibit is
going to be one of the principal
features of the Government building-
Lynching a Train Wrecker.
A few days ago a miscreant '
placed an obstruction across the
railroad tracks, near Purvis, Miss.
A passenger train was ditched,
the engineer was killed, several
cars wrecked and a number of
passengers injured. . The deed
was traced to a merchant of
Purvis. A confession was extorted
from his son, who assisted him in
the work, by thrusting his hands
into a hot stove and holding them
there until they were burned to a
crisp. The man's daughter had
been killed -on a train, and he
appealed for damages, and failing
to receive,nyi took this mflaico
lace were d;iven touJfary, : and-''
Saturday took? -him from' jail and'
hung him. The wretch confessed
and exculpated his son.
Day by day, as the further de
tails of the Spanish earthquake
are received, the horrors of that
event are printed in darker colors.
The loss of life, 'which was first
estimated at about fifty, will be (
nearly one thousand, and the de
struction of property was much. .
greater than was first reported.
Sunny Spain, like our own Terri
tory, is experiencing an unusual
cold snap, and the poor people,
whose homes have been destroyed,
are suffering from exposure as-
well as hunger. The slight
shocks' which have occurred from
day to day keep the people panic
stricken and without the courage
to begin to rebuild their ruined
homes or do anything to better
the situation. Their condition is
indeed very pitiable.
A hundred years ago, in Maine,
they employed different means
than those now resorted to for
erecting their sacred edifices.
The good Christian of to day
would hardly consent to the em
ployment of .rum, with the
necessary concomitants, sugar and
molasses, as a factor in church
building. Here is a copy of an
entry in the parish records of
Alfred, Maine, dated April 6,
1784: "The inhabitants of this
parish met pursuant to adjourn
ment and passed the following
vote: Voted to purchase 2 bar
rels of rum, 1 barrel of pork, 4
bushels of beans, 10 gallons of mo -lasses,
10 pounds of coffee and 10
pounds of sugar, to raise the.
meeting house. Voted that
Nathaniel Contant was desired to
procure said articles."
R. F. Hugh son, late a citizen of
this county but now of Phoenix,
has levied SpShll the right, titles
and interests of James A. Rea vis
in the notorious ReaTis' grant,
which is advertised to bol&at ?A
Sheriff's sale in Phoenix on the r
19th day of January, to satisfy a
judgment of $300 and costs. As
Reavis is such an extensive land
owner, says the Globe Silver Belt,
it is the duty of the Sheriffs in
the several counties in which the
grant lies, to assess the land and
thus swell the revenues.
Nevada Republicans have nota
inated Hon. J. P. Jones for re-election
to the United States Senate.
