ST. JOHNS, APACHE COUNTY, ARIZONA TE&RlfrORlf, THURSDAY, JULY 9, 1885.
NUMBER XXVI. Li- -- r- v. ' R.V-V. Wallapai Tribune : Paul Brcoh's pnttle on the range near Walnut 'creek are said to be the fattest in 'the Territory. Chicago Tribune: lcn )'cars ago stock cattle in Texas cost $4 Tier head, now they cost from $15 to $18 per head. Grand Junction (Col.) News: Kimball Bros, recently sold forty short-horn steers in Aspen that averaged over 900 pounds. Some of the steers brought over $90. Texas Stockman: From reliable source we learn that the cattle loss in the Black Hills country was at least ten per cent. This is account ed for by the deep and lasting snow there. Las Animas ( Col.) Leader : The aw compelling railroad companies to keep a book containing the brands of cattle killed along its line, at the county seat of counties went into effect July 1st. Chicago Tribune : In the United States the annual consumption of meat is about 120 pounds per capi ta; in England, 105 pounds ; in France, 74 pounds, and in Ger many 69 pounds per capita. Socorro Bullion: The average cost of. marketing cattle, including transportation from poirfts in cen tral and southern New Mexico, and feed, handling and commission m Kansas Citv. is about per head. Santa Fe about .1,500 quarantined miles above Review: mere are head of Texas cattle and held about three El Paso, and about fourteen miles below the Territo rial line. They are owned by a Mr Upton who claims to own a range near Carlisle in Grant county. I he cattle look badly. S Las Animas (Col.) Leader: The New England and Colorado Cattle Company has just been organized with a capital stock of $200,000. The business will be carried on in Arapahoe county, and the princi pal office is at Denver. The com pany has one fine ranch in Wyo ming and another in Montana. Texas Stockman: A great many stockmen who have learned that range stock raising on a large scale is not so profitable as it has been, show a disposition, espec ially whei;e financially involved, to reduce their possessions in extent and improve them in quality. In other words they are beginning to "hedge." New Mexico Stock Grower : Large herds destined for the range of the Aztec Cattle Company, in northern Arizona, are still coming up the Pecos river. They turn west from Fort Sumner, whence they are driven to Albuquerque, and from that point shipped over the Atlan tic & Pacific railroad to their des tination. Socorro Bullion : The Secretary of the Wyoming Stock-Grower s Association has recently reported that since its organization in 1873 it has increased from ten members, representing an ownership of 20. 000 cattle, valued at $350,000, to a membership of 435, in 18S5, repre senting an ownership of 2,000,000 Iread of cattle, valued at$100,000, O00, Kansas City Dispatch : Twciity one cars of cattle from Ash Fork, Arizona, arrived here yesterday over the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroads They are the first lot of a shipment df 1,500 head, and this shipment is the first in that direction from that country. Hitherto all cattle raised in that section have been sent to San Fran cisco, and although efforts have been made to induce shipments in this direction none havebeen suc cessful until recently, as the Pacific railway lias always prevented that result bv their 1 ow rates; Santa Fe (N: M.) Review: Gov ernor Ross tells the Review re porter that no stock quarantine inspector should hold a position who has one cent's interest in the live stock business. He says its like appointing an importer of 'fine cigars to the office of collector of customs. New Mexico Stock Grower: A meeting of prominent stockmen was held at La Junta, Colorado, this week to try and make arrange ment with range owners for a trail through southern Colorado. The c ? idea was to purchase a right-of-way and charge a toll on all herds using the same. No perfect under standing was arrived at. AVestern Kural: JN early every week we are informed of new out breaks of pleuro-pneumonia, and then the matter drops out of sight and memory. In other words part of the time at least, the re port is false. As we go to press the news comes that there is an other outbreak in Illinois. It is best not to get frightened at these reports, but at the same time to be guarded and watchful. San Antonio (Texas) Stockman : If the money lost m cattle m Texas last winter by starvation had been invested in feed and fed to the number left, the owners would be richer and happier to-day ; richer, because they would have better cattle or more money for them if sold, and happier because they would not be haunted by recollections of gaunt and starving cattle. But. while both sad and severe, good will come of it, as the lesson that there is more money and more satisfaction every way, in smaller herds, and they better bred and better fed, has been well learned, and is being put into prac tice. ' New Mexico Stock Grower : A scheme has been formulated for the organization of effective Territorial militia to operate against the In dians in case of raids. It is to have prominent ranchmen commis sioned as officers, and they will be expected to organize the companies by enlisting all cowboys who de sire to join. This idea is credited to Sheriff Russell and Captain Eaton of Socorro county, and in an interview with Governor Ross they came to an understanding whereby the plan will be carried into effect. We are certain that no body can be gotten together who can more quickly put down any Indian outbreak than the brave cowboy, and the verr knowledge by the Indians that they will have such men for adversaries will have a salutary effect in keeping them on the reservation and in a peace able state. Correspondent, N. M. Stock Grower: ' The cattlemen of cen tral New Mexico are now at the "boiling over" point on the ques tion of any further Indian cussed- ness, wnetner by Apache, Mesca- lero or Navajo. We would kindly call the attention of the guardians of the Navajos to the fact that, if these Indians are allowed to leave their reservation during the fall hunting season, and roam about the San Augustine plaius, that they (the IndiansJ will be killed at sight. The authorities have it in their power to protect the stock men from the "Christless whelps" of the Navajo nation, who annually make incursions upon our ramies to the SQrious inconvenience and loss of the stock owner. There is at the present time a bunch of i eighteen Navajos living at Alain o j springs this county, outside of the j reservation limits where they have been the past eighteen months. They are marauding, thieving red skins who should be taken back to the reservation, or take their chances on being sent sheolwflrd at the hands of the cattlemen. NEW PROGRAMME. A few days since the Tribune called attention to the fact that Taylor and Cannon had issued a circular to the leading saints all over the Territory counseling them to stand firm, and now conies the supplimental information that the circular is a call, in the parlance of the Mining Stock Exchange for "more mud." The head of each Mormon family is assessed $25, ostensibly for means with which to complete the Salt Lake temple as speedily as possible, but in fact for the sinews of war. Instead of remaining on the defensive, they propose to carry the war into Africa. The saints are told in con nection with the demand for mon ey, and which some of the poor families of the Territory are sell ing their last cows to raise, that be fore the temple is completed; if this money is quickly forthcoming, Utah shall be ridded of every Gen tile and apostate in the dominion of St. Johns. This is the stuff being preached by the bishops and home missionaries all over the land, while the true inwardness of thebusiness, as reported to us, is that the half million dollars to be thus raised is to be used in Wash ington.. , First, to drive from the Federal offices in Utah those who are obnoxious to the Lords an- nointed potygamiets and supplant them with men of their own choos ing. and to then work for the ad mission of the Territory into the Union as a state. But whether this is accomplished or not, the church is to make a surrender of polygamy, and on that fact de mand the desideratum of their hopes sovereign Statehood. From still another source we hear that polygamy is to be surrendered, with a mental reservation, and that, too, within the next ninety days ; that the elders are being privately instructed so that when the Octo ber conference is called to vote on it, all-will understand exactly that it is a cut and dried business for a purpose, to be followed in the com ing Congress with a concerted movement, backed by money, to press into the Union. Even Jus tice Field who was in the city a few clays since, could see no ob jection to the admission of Utah, except her polygamy, and thous ands of people in the United States are in that very boat. But everybody in this Territory fully realize, wnat, mat, as an accom plished fact means to both saint and sinner. Salt Lake Tribune. THE FQOL KILLER. I sometimes think that if the fool killer would give a little more attention to his business and would try a little harder to earn his salary there would.be less com plaint and less dissatisfaction on the part of the intelligent tax payer. Now, for instance, sup pose that he should, prior to each election, hold a kind of competi tive examination of fools, to close with a grand tournament and fool shoot at thirty yards risOj or the fool could be made to pay each year for a licensej the revenue t,o go to the government, partial fools to pay $50 license, chronic fools $100 and hopeless fools $200 per year. I'd like to be instrumental in getting such a law passed, and then get out of the country be fore it went into effect. Bill Nye. Deputy Sheriff Choat, of Charles ton yesterday arrested a Mexican horse-thief by the name of Juste- mente, in Carr's canon, Huachuca mountains, and killed another by the liainfc of Armaido, who re sisted arrest. The dead body of Armaido was brought into Charles ton where a Coroner's inquest was held last evening by the Coroner, Dr. Matthews; Jiistemente was brought into Tombstone by Sher iff Hatch and lodged in the County jail: Tombstone Record: PROFESSIONAL CARDS. ff L.

CiiALANriEit 20,000000 ACRES OF LAND FOR Sale in New Mexico and Arizona; THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY.- Th"T.:inrf Grant of this Comoanv. in alternate sections extends entirely across the Territories of New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34m ana 36th degrees of north latitude. It is 650 miles long and 80 miles wide and includes some of the best grazing lands of both Territories. In the valleys are many desirable tracts of agricultural land, sus ceptible of irrigation. A sufficiency of water has been found wherever cattle and sheep have been grazed, and. large herds have been grazed in the country ever since the coming 01 tne xuexicans. Wells have been sunk and good water has been obtained. A stream of iunning water, the San Jose, rises near the summit of the Sierre Madre, and runs 75 miles eastward to the K10 Fuerco, and the compa ny's road follows the whole length of its valley. There are numerous fine valleys opening into the vallcvof the San Jose, flanked by grassy and woo ded hills, upon which there is an open growth of small cedar and pmon. I here is ancci-nsive belt of good pine timber on the mountains, near the railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes of the Sierre Madre. There is a large coal field west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex plored, and which will afford labor for a large pop ulation, there are also coal deposits op the eastern slope of the Sierra Madre. Many varieties of buil ding stone arc found in great abundance along the lihe of the road. In Ariiona the grazing areas are slipplled wtih good -water, and the United States Surveyors, who made the official surveys of the country, say they arc as good, if not better, than those of Wyoming and Montana. The Navajo Indians grow corn without irrigation; in the valreys of the Puerco of the West; on the Company's lands, and in the val ley of the Little Colorado) also on the line of the road, good crops of corn, sorghum, oats, barley, and garden vegetables are grown by irrigation, the finest of potatoes, oats, wheat, barley and gar den vegetables of large Size and inequality have been successfully grown without irrigation on WATCHES AT GREATLY REDUCED PRICES.
