Death of .Santiago L. iluhhell.
Death has stricken from the roll
of' the living among us and trans
i4rred to the shilling host of immor-
ials that have been freed from the
.'0 cares and labors of earth since the
: , world hegan--our friend Santiago
.L: Hubbell, of New Mexico. Full
.'.- of years honorably spent in acts of
' - 'benevolence towards his fellow man,
as iho head of a family, a kind and
'V -devoted husband and father, with
s.. -unceasing care and culture ot his
diildrcn, who were to him the
'.' "prldo, glory, and liope of his life.
Farewell, old friend ; may the peace
, " which passelh all understanding be
, with you for ever more in the spirit
yflnml." Y transfer to our columns
-i ,';frd'm the Albuquerque Democrat
; . .,.4ihc following details of Mr. Ilub
boIFs life in New Mexico :
"All the old timers of New Mexi
co and many of the new timers, will
regret to learn that Don Santiago
L. Hubbell, one of the very first
Americans to make this territory
his home, is dead. He was strick
eng with paralysis about 11 o'clock
this forenoon at his residence at
Pajarito, seven miles south of this
city, and three hours later he was
dead. His wife and daughter were
absent at Bernalillo at the lime and
" only the servants were present to
witness the dying agonies of the
white haired veteran. Santiago
'" Hubbell was one of the unique char
acters of the far west. He belonged
- to a class now nearly all gone
men with whom we associate, all
the romance and glory and western
" warfare of forty years ago and it
' was a rare treat to talk to him a-
; bout those stirring days. He was
v; ' of New England birth, but lived a
'1nnr while in Mississippi and Mis
souri before coming to the far west.
He was with Fremont, the pathfin
der, when he made his first trip in
to New Mexico, and after the Mex
ican war the first collector of cus
toms at El Paso, at that time only
a cattle ranch, with one of two lit
tle mud huts. After New Mexico
r". became a territory of the United
States he was made snerut or Val
encia count, and filled the office
with credit to himself and profit to
the people.
Many years ago he married a
Mexican lady .who has made him
sin excellent wife' and has borne
him several children, one of whom,
Lorenzo Hubbell, is now sheriff of
Apache county, Arizona. Don
Santiago was in this city yesterday
afternoon, r.nd those who met the
o-euial old gentleman then, will be
Neatly shocked to learn of his sud
den death. Dr. Thomas, of Ber
nalillo, is his son-in-law, and Mrs.
Hubbell was visiting at his house
at the time of her husband's death.
Don Santiago owned a very val
uable ranch at Pajarito where he
has resided for many years, and he
will not only be mourned by his
bereaved wife, and child i en, bnt by
yery resident of New Mexico tbat
feels an interest in those rugged
and fast falling veterans who, be
fore the majority of us were born,
helped Ijy their courage and pa
triotism, to plant civilization in
these weslern wilds and give it eng
during life."
The remains were buried with
masonic honors at Paiariio. on
Friday Feb. Gth.
IlEFOPtTOF THE GIUND JURY.
Territory of Arizona, Apache Couxty,
Tninn Judicial Dis-tricy District
Court. February Term, IS? c.
On the morning of FehrnarvSrd. 1835.
. jury called for the said term of the Dis
I frict Court held in St. Johns, in sad
i county, were only empannelled and
j sworn, thof e being twentv-two jurors
j present ; after hearing the instructions
oi his honor Juflge bumner Howard, and
his appointing Sol Bat th foreman of the
jury the Grand Jury retired for consul
tation. Mr. Robert E. Morrison was elected
clerk of the Grand Jury and Mr. Joseph
Hinsley interpreter.
A committee of the Grand Jury on the
Board of Supervisors repo! t as follows :
We, the said Committee have examin
ed as close as possible into the condition
of a;,airs in the said Board as we could
during the time, and we report that af
ter the 'investigation we have learned
all the stub-books and bills have been
burned and destroyed ; that no record
of the proceedings of the Board previous
to April 3rd, 1S3, can be found; that
in the minute book kept since said time
we find that the record of money allow
ances do not appear as is required by
law, that no record has been kept of
whole meetings of Said Board.
"We would suggest that the Board of
Supervisors direct the clerk of said
Board to keep a correct and accurate
account of all proceedings of said Board
and to lceep safely all stub-books and
all bills which are presented to said
Board and allowed.
We would further suggest that in view
of the fact that malfeasance appears t
have been committed by the dork of the
Board of Supervisors, and Luther Mar
tin, chairman, in not keeping proper re
cords in the proceedings of the Board of
Supervisors, that we would recommend
that the District Attorney shall thor
oughly investigate this matter and if he
so deem it best, bring suit upon the ofn
sial bonds of said officers for a failure to
pojform their duties as public officers.
We would recommend that in future
the members of the Board of Supervis
ors see more carefully to the records of
the minutes'of the meetings and the rc--cord
of allowances against the county.
We would say that ail the Supervfsorf
of the Board of Supervisors of the last
two years should be censured for the
negligent way in which the affairs of the
Board are in. Jamss Riciiey,
Chairman.
The Committee on the County Treas
urer's Office.
"We, the members of said Committee
would respectfully report that we have
made as thorough an examination of
said office as we could in the short time
at our disposal. We find that since the
organization of the county no books of
accounts have been kept by the Treasu
rer until about one year ago. "We find
it utterly impossible for the indebted
ness of the county to be discovered by
these books or how much money the
county has on hand. We have discov
ered that any number of warrants ap
pear upon ihe Treasurer's books for
which no authority can be found in the
minutes of the Board of Supervisors.
Among other things we have discover
ed, t hat during one year $1, GOO had been
paid on interest on tho jail bonds. We
would recommend that the District At
torney enquire into this thoroughly and
if possible recover 800 dollars, which we
think should not have been paid.
In the short time at our disposal we
have found ft impossible to give a prop
er examination into the financial affairs
of the county, and we would recommend
that the Board of Supervisors employ a
competent expert for the purpose of ma
king a complete and thorough examina
tion into the financial condition of the
county; assist the different officers in
straightening books of accounts and
make a report to the said Board of Sup
ervisors, showing the actual indebted
ness of the county and the amount of
money in the hands of the Treasurer.
We would further recommend that the
Treasurer should inspect carefully every
warrant which comes into his hands for
payment, and If he discovers that any
warrants have deen issued for which
there is no authoritv or no allowances
appears to have been made by the Board
of Supervisors, then he shall refuse to
pay the same.
Ve have had before us, Mr. Bunch,
the present clerk of the Board, and he
states that he has devoted about three
weeks to the examination of county af
fairs and he has been unable to find out
what condition the county is in, and we
must state that we report the same.
We would further report that we have
discovered terribie extravagance by the
Board ot Supervisors in the auditing of
bills presented against the county. F or
instance, ovidence before us shows that
for certain printing, 750 dollars war .al
lowed by the Board; that the same prin
ting could have been done for the sum
of 150 dollars, as offered by the Albu
querque Journal. We would request
that the Board of Supervisors should ex
ercise the strictest economy in the al
lowance ot bills against the county and
scrutinize ali accounts as carefully as
they do in their own private business.
Rorert Morrison.
Chairman of Committee.
To the Grand Jury of Apache County,
Arizana at Feb .'term District Cout:
Your Committee have done their duty
the best that time will permit; have
made an examination of the Sheriff Of
fice. "We a e unable to ascertain any
thing as to the office, as there is nothing
in it that we can comprehend from such
an investigation as we can make; but
think that such investigation should be !
made in connection with the Treasure's j
office, and the office of the Board of Su- i
pervlsors and the minutes of their pro
ceedings. Jamss Riciiey,

Committee.
The Grand Jury would report that our
county jail is utterly unsafe and insecure
in which to keep persons and we would
earnestly urge that the new jail be push
ed to completion as rapidly us possible.
It is recommended by us that our clerk
Robe-t E. Morrison and interpreter Jo
seph Hinsley bo allowed additional pay,
for extra services rendered, during the
session of the Grand J ury.
In closing our repoit we desire to re
turn our sincere thanks to his Honor the

courteous and dignified manner in which
we have been received by him and also
for the valuable instructions given us for
our guidance.
We also w"sh to thank our untiring
District Attorney and also his genial in
telligent assistant Mr. Bunch, for the
great and valuable assistance rendered
us in discovering crime and fraud in this
county.
And now having disposed of all the
business brought before us and thanking
ill who have rendered us any assistance
