President Grevy of the French repnblic has resigned. Tucson will have a municipal election on the 12th of December. Northey, the jnry-briber of San Francisco, was sentenced to nine jstrs in San Qnentin. There is not" the slightest donbt in the world bnt that a qnartz mill would prove a paying invest ment in this vicinity. Ed Low, one of the officials of the Prescott and Arizona railway, has been arrested for stealing a barrel of apples from the ware house. Rather low business, that A frightful ocean calamity oc curred near Dover, England, by which over 200 passengers of the Dutch steamer W. A. Scholten lost their lives through a collis ion. The great sculling match for the championship of the world be tween Wra. Beach of Australia and Edward Hanlan of Canada was won by Beach after an exciting struggle. The race was rowed on the Xepau river end Hanlan was defeated by two lengths. There are two or three papers in the territory, notably the vir tuous Star, that are still trying to boost tip the Tortillita mining swindle,' which was so thoroughly ventilated by the New York Her ald and several first-class mining journals together with the Tomb stone Epitaph, which gave an ex pose of the manner in which that company sought to subsidize news papers generally. The attorney general has ren dered a decision on the construc tion of sections 3, 4 and 5 of the act of March 3d, 1S87, passed to provide for the adjustment of land grants made by congress to aid in the construction of rail roads, and for the forfeiture of unearned lands. The question was submitted as to what is meant by bona fide purchasers of un claimed lands as mentioned in the third section of the act The opinion says the rights of the several classes are as follows: The first in right is the homestead, or pre-emption settler, whose entry has been wrongfully cancelled, and if he has notbeeu disqualified by locating another claim, or making another entry in lieu of that erroneously cancelled, his right is absolute. The second class persons are bona fide pur chasers of land unclaimed by the first class. The third c'asa are those who without knowledge of wrong or error, have purchased from a railroad company land pre viously - entered by the pre-emption or homestead settler whose entry has been erroneously can celled, and which land pre-emption or homestead settled did not elect to claim after recovery by the proceedings prescribed by the sections of the act Under the fourth section of the act the sec retary says: "Until the lands shall have been legally determined to belong to the United States, the right to issue patents under the fourth section does not arise. If patents should be issued under the fourth section before recon veyance as a judicial recovery un der the second, and . proceedings be then instituted to cancel the patent issued to the railroad in the decision was adverse to the j government, two patents would be outstanding at the same time." Ihe question submitted under the fifth section is whether the pro viso making it 'awful for bona fide purchasers of lands not con veyed to or for use of the railroad company selling the same to make payment to us for said land, ap plies to lands within the primary granted limits or whether it ap plies to land within the indemnity limits of which the company has made selection, but which has not been approved. On this point the secretary says: "The word grant in the fifth section must be construed to include as it does in the proceeding sections, both primary and indemnity limits. Upon receipt of the opinion, Sec retary Lamar directed the con -missioner of the general land office to at once adjust all land l,ortnurx Correspondence. Geo. Stralton is in town. Ho it was who furnished fresh mounts to the Clifton guards at the San oimon rancu wuen pursuing Geroni mo, on the Cth of J une, 1885. Booms seem to be the onW of the day on this const, and now it is extending over the divide. New towns, virgin lands and mines are the cause. As soon as a towusile is patented steps are instituted to boom the place. Th attraction of arable lands of the public do main that are open to settlement is made known to the densely populated districts of tho North and East to create a boom in the locality. When an important strike in mineral is made any where it is certain to be followed by the inevitable boom.' Some times the place, the land or the mineral discovery creates a boom that is short-lived deplorable in results being born of the spirit .of .reckless ' speculation, "ribbed up" by the adventurer and the un scrupulous sharper for the pur pose of personal gain at the ex penso of the honest investor who hal swallowed the improbable stories toia mm. mil mere are periods in the history of places known as booms that still con tinue prosperous, because its busi ness men having an ere to the future and would not tolurata the unnatural boom to exist. Lead- vine, in ner early days, is a case in point as regards a mining camp. El Paso is another per taming to real estate, etc. Neither of these places have ever experi enced the humiliating position of having to explain or apologize to the world for creating bubble fig ures in realties. Both are rich in resources, backed by plucky and enterprising business men men wno aro capable in tlieir various avocations and who act as a unit in any undertaking that inures to the common welfare or tends to commercial advantages; men who are not afraid to face competition; men who recognize that competi t:ou is tbe life of trade; and if there be resources in their m"cet, they will ba nnearthod an.l create genuine values settled on the fonu dition of toil, of which prosperity and wealth are the offsprings. In this connection it is pleasing to note that the business men at our county seat (Silver City) have realized, at last, the importance of attracting attention to Grunt county's numerous resources per taining to mines, lands and cli mate, - and have inaugurated a move that is sure to win. They are scattering broadcast over the world a folder gotten np in an elegant and attractive form set ting forth nothing but plain un varnished facts for the laborer, the farmer, the stockman, the capitalist and the nnhealthy to ponder on. The statements made in the folder, being true and un exaggerated, it does not take the eye of a prophet to see the result. Grant county will boom on its merits and not on unnatural or in flated values. There will be no reaction to prostrate or cripple its energy or enterprise; but rather the sure progressive march on the road to prosperity and Buccess will be pursued. The business men of Lordsburg will assist in the good work. Qcm Nunc. Lordsburg, Nov. 28th. El Paso is unhappy. The Mayor and corporation authorities of the town of Ysleta are on the point of instituting an injunction suit against the city of El Paso, asking the courts to restrain the latter city from emptying its sew age into the Rio Grande. Ysleta lies twelve miles below El Paso, and depends for all the water used for'drinking and irrigation upon the river. El Paso has just com pleted an extensive sewerage sys tem which empties into the Rio Grande somewhere between the two cities. The Ysleta people are afraid that El Paso will contami nate the river to such an extent that all will bo poisoned, hence the application for an injunction On top of all these domestic com plaints there will be remonstrances from the Mexican authorities on the same subject. It is asserted that ex-United States Senator Jones of Florida, who, for some unexplained reason has sojourned in Detroit for two years past, is practically a beggar upou the streets, und but for the charity of a friend would be with out food or shelter to-night The 6tory says he has run through with all his money and completely exhausted Lis credit. Leading members of the Democratic party as well as high church officials and others have repeatedly urged him to go home to Florida but he will not do it. It is the opinion of many that his mind w affected. For the three weeks ending Novomber 16th the custom smelt- orqntFl T'nsn trontn? A ffl tnr.r FOR SALE. Tho Coronado saloon, building and grounds.
