The rains have come at last and the
drought which has caused so much
havoc and consternation for over two
years is a thing of the past. The fall
and winter of 1893 were unusully dry
and the spring of 1Q0O opened up with
dismal prospects. Cattle were dying,
feed was scarce and water was still
scarcer. The summer came and nearly
passed without any relief. . It was not
until the latter part of August last
year that the raius appeared. The fall
and winter witnessed copious precipita
tions. A great many cattle were ship
ped out last winter in anticipation of
the continuance of the drought. The
ranges in many places were almost de
pleted. But the overstocked sections
received a much needed rest and gath
ered new life and strength in the res
pite. The grass roots were in splendid
shape this spring and summer; all that
was necessary to make them bud out
again in their primitive glory was
moisture. Range News.

Several Mexicans were arrested
Saturday on complaint of Special
Agent S. J. Holsinger, of the interior
department, for digging up and selling
prehistoric relics. Deputy Marshal C.

the prisoners to Prescott. There are
not a great many white people who
are aware of the existence of this law,
and these . poor people, who , can
neither speak, read or write the
English language, were entirely
ignorant of it. Further, they had been
taught by attaches of the Smithsonian
Institute where and how to dig for
these relics, and presumed they had a
perfect right to do so for their person
al benefit. They are poor and their
arrest and taking to Prescott, to be
turned loose, worked quite a hardship
Selby Works Looted of $280,000.
San Francisco, Aug. 6. One of the
most complete and daring robberies
in criminal history occurred at Vallejo
Junction last night when the strong
box Of iheSelby Smelting works was
looted of 230,000 in gold bulliou.
la their haste the thieves left two
bricks on the shore of the bay. The
robbery was accomplished by dig
ging a tunnel from outside under the
vault. This was evidcutly the work of
weeks. After securing the gold the
thief or thieves carried it presumably to
mile from the bay where they embarked, leaving
no clew behind.
It is not known whether one or a
dozzen men executed the robbery.
"It is the boldest robbery in the his
tory of the state, "said Captain of Detec
tives Seymour, "and from all informa
tion that can be obtained at this time
there is absolutely no clew to the rob
bers. In fact, we do not know whether
the crime was committed by one man or
more; The probabilities are, howeve r,
that more than one man was concerned
in it. ,
"We have taken all precautions to
capture the robbers. Telegrams have
been sent to every sheriff in the cen
tral part of the state, ordering him to
search for the missing gold, to over
haul every boat and steamer within
his jurisdiction, to fcearch every rail
road train aud stage coach passing
throughout his county aud to examine
every one taking passage at different
railroad stations throughout the state.
We can do no more than this, and I
think that with the procautions we
have taken, do stranger can leave the
state until examined. Surely, if any
attempt is made to ship the bullion by
any of the ordinary modes of convey
ance we will . discover it. On the
whole, I believe the chances are good
for capturing the robbers."
Death of Wm. C. Stahle.

Receiver for Cobre Grande.
( New Yokk, Aug. 7. Justice O'Gor
tnau iu the supreme court to-day, on
an application of the attorneys for
Axel lialenberg, held that a receiver
should be appointed for the Cobre
Grade Copper company whose mines
are in Sonora, Mexico, lialeuberg is a
stock-holder in the company and
alleges his rights have been infringed

will be appointed later.
From the Tombstone Praspeutor.l
Last night about 12 o'cloek, Wm. C.
Stahle passed to the beyond, having re
ceived a stroke of apoplexy the day
previous, from which he did not revive
and death came as he wished it a
painless one. The deceased has been
a resident of Tombstoue for many
years and perhaps as familiarly known
in this section as any citizen of the
county. Instinctively and intuitively
a gentleman and as naturally of jovial
disposition, he won the friendship of a
legion of acquaintances. Though his
own greatest enemy, he was incapable
of inflicting upon others a wound or a
harsh and unkind word, leaving no
scar behind. The deceased was schol
arly and well versed in law and cur
rent topics. He served one. term by
election as district attorney of this
county and twice as city attorney. In
Moutaua and other states he also held
official positions which he creditably
filled. In the death of one who was so
universally well liked, it is pardonable
iu the charitable condoning of a fault
and emulation of the virtues and noble
traits of a good character which are
lessons that should not be lost. De

were notified of his demise. The
funeral is set for 5:30 p. ni. today

From the Denver Mini tic Reportor.
We notice that many mining districts
are suffering from excessive prwes be
ing placed on prospects. A question
frequently asked is: "What is the
value of a prospect?" The answer is,
of course, that from a practical busi
ness standpoint a "prospect" has no
real immediate value; its value, is
entirely prospective. The sensible
method of handling prospects is that
of the bond and lease. Tlie bond is
fixed at a fair price, so that the man
who takes hold of, the prospect and
puts his good money into the ground,
and risks it, can see a fair show of get
ting his money back with. a good profit,
if he strikes a mine. In other words,
the prospector and the lessee should,
divide the min0 (it one is found) be
tween them. This is equitable.
In a backward district, in which no
hoom is going on, i,!, is foolish to ex
pect the lessee to pay money down, to
the prospector in order to find the lat
ter a mine. No.sensible man would do
that, and any prospector who asks it
is injuring himself and the district. On
the other hand, in a boom district,
where sales ot prospects are being
made daily, it is not fair to ask the
.JospecVoo to tie. op hi property for
for any length of time without a cash
consideration. Or if a prospector is
taking out pay ore. it is not a fair prop
osition to make. In this latter ease the
cash consideration should be such that
a decent living, at least, is assured the
prospector during the lite of the lease.
The question, therefore, of- the terms
of a bond aud leasd are determined by
conditions of the locality and the pros
pect. No prospector should tie up his
property unless the lessee, agrees to
perform certain work to develop the
prospect. That is not fair to the pros
pector or the district..

Are becoming numerous. The idea
promotes longevity. It is interesting to
note that the means through which

is a way to make it, if it does not.
