Grant has a stroke of honesty once in a while. Services were held at Provineetown, Mass., on tho 20th, in commemoration of the 202ml anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at that point. Thr honorable and ancient widow of John lirown is journeying through the east, seeking and receiving a little cheap notoriety in tho way of public receptions. It is unfoituuute for Pinal county that most of the mining companies who have acquired property here, have been gov erned in their selections more by the lo cation oi the claims than by their visible merits. They seem not to have cared whether a claim showed even a trace of mineral if it was only in juxtaposition to some paying property. They were will ing to pay an exhorbitant price for it in preference to buying a well-defined ledge with a good ore body in sight, in some locality where but little development work had been performed. They seemed to have had a passion for buying "posi tion" instead of ledges, governed hy the idea that they might possibly strike the rich ore body known to exist in the pay ing property. The result has been num erous failures after the expenditure ot thousands of dollars in sinking through barren rock with the expectation or the hope of striking a blind lead. As a consequence the men who have lost heav ily by these injudicious investments have become prejudiced against the county and distrustful of every mining enterprise started here. They communicate then distrust and prejudice to others and thus our county is made to suffer for their folly. It is to be hoped that companies entering this finld in the future will se lect claims for what they show within themselves and not because of any pros pective value they may have by reason of their position to developed and paying mines. We have had all this daniphool ism in mine buying that we want. We have hundreds of fine prospects here, with strong ledges and good mineral in sight, w hich can be bought cheap and can be made productive mines without an ex travagant outlay of hard each in develop ments and machinery, and we want min ing companies to take hold of these clsa go and curse some other section w ith their mania for sinking in county rock around the lines of paying mines in the hope of striking the pay streak of the latter. Tiicke are many reasons why Arizona should be made a state and an equal num ber why she should remain a Territory a few years longer. The chief objection to the state proposition is the fact that, ow ing to the numerical weakness of our pop ulation, the revenue necessary to support a state government would largely increase our rate of taxation. The principal thing in favor of entering statehood, is the fact that it would enable us to select our own officers and give us a political influence through which we might secure govern ment appropriations for internal improvements. The Mining JCeeieio very truthfully re marks, that the value of a mine, as an in vestment, is measured by the value and amount of its product, and the day is not far distant w hen the value of mining stocks w ill be measured by the same stand ard. Production must be the measure of true value and real worth. When this time comes, and this adjustment is made, mining stocks, based upon minus in the line of production, will come to the front as chief among reliable investment securities. Thr Plumed Knight, whose other name is Ulaine, is reported as saying: "I wish it distinctly understood that I am not a candidate for the presidency or any other political office, and nothing can in duce me to become such." He evidently is not one of the sanguine brethren who see in the republican Waterloo of the 7th a hopeful sign for 1884, else he would not fling away ambition thus. He knows a hawk from a handsaw. A curious experiment is reported in proof of the electric theory, with gold, which, if true, would go far toward prov ing one of the causes, at least, of the re pletion of gold veins. It Is said that the impalpable powder of gold was distribu ted through a ball of clay, in which a seam or crack was made. The ball was then placed between the two poles of a strong electric current, when che gold in the clay was deposited in vein which probably disturbed or interrupted the reg ular flow of the current of electricity. In endeavoring to determine the foot steps of Nature, in her creative moments, and the plans upon which she builds and works, the fact must be taken into ac count that the earth's bosom is scarred and seamed and marked by the mighty tumult of contending elements, and the work that was begun by the silent fingers of the frost may have been finished and changed when crashing planets were molt ing in the fervent heat that was wrapping molten worlds in its burning embrace. Mining Btrieve. Thanksgiving Proclamation. A correspondent, writing, the New York Herald, from Tucson, states that a company has been organized for the- pur pose of building a narrow gauge railroad from Casa Grande via Florence, Pioneer and Globe to some point on the Atlantic & Pacific, near the New Mexico line. The same correspondent also states that the Southern Pacific Company propose building through by the Needles to Pres cott, thence to Phoenix and thence across the Salt river valley and up the Gila val ley via Florence to Tucson, and further that they will abandon their present, track from Casa Grande to Yuma. These statements, tliough they have not been made public before, are not new. Both projects have been discussed privately for some time, and we believe the Southern Pacific scheme has been fully determined upon. At least we have been so informed by parties having knowledge of this com pany's private affairs and intentions. The j other enterprise may be regarded as It now turns out that Arabi Pasha is a ! certainty also, but the starting point has Swedo, whoflo right name is simply Karl Anderson. The story of his life is quite an interesting ono, but too lengthy for re production in this connection. K - --- - A firk at Providence, Rhode Island, on the 21st inst. , caused the death of Thos. Mann, Emma Massett and Bessie Cobb, fatally injured three and seriously hurt thirteen other operatives. Mb. Teller's proposition to disarm the Apaches has evidently been laid on the table by the Indian ring. We thought the Secretary had more stiffening in his spinal column than he has exhibited in this matter. ..1.

Chief Justice Field is also spoken of for the first position, but he is too much of a cor poration server to be nominated. The eastern press has become suffi ciently enlightened on the subject of wes tern mining fields to concede to Arizona the richest silver ores in the world. The Denver exposition probably had some in fluence in bringing about this enlightenment. noi ueen limy uociueu upon ana win de pend somewhat upon the action of the Southern Pacific. But in any event Flor ence is certain to be connected with the outside world by rail. Either tho one or the other and perhaps both of these roads will com here Our location is too fa vorable and the inducements it offers too great to be ignored. If both these schemes here named should fail, we can depend upon the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Company building in from Ben son or Tucson. The latter is "official" and may be relied upon. Taking these facts into consideration Florence has as bright a future before her as any town in the Territory. It is reported that Ingersoli's sugges tion of Gen. Sherman as an available re publican candidate for 1884. has pleased that distinguished soldier very much, and tlms another ot our idols 13 crushed. w e believed Sherman too honest to surren der his convictions for the sake of office, but it seems we were mistaken. Men, like juries, are not to be trusted. "Sherm," we shall dote on you no more. Dr. Collins, of New York, declares that Melville left the De Long party to die when he coiild have saved them, and claims to have documentary evidence with which to prove his charge. He assigns as a reason tor this criminal action on the part of Melville, jealousy between De Long and the formsr. He also promises to reveal many other ugly tacts concern ing the conduct of the head officers of the illfated Jennette. Very rich silver discoveries are re ported from Pigeon river, Canada, but the reports are a little too highly gilded to impress one as being true. They men tion the picking up of large chunks of virgin silver on the surface. This sounds like some of the fanciful stories of Mexico finds. HUIXXV MEW.

MURRAY Ah ocr cotcmporaries are suggesting candidates for the speakership of the next assembly, we rise to suggest Judge J. W. Anderson, of Florence, as tho fittest man for that position, both by experience and knowledge He is a good parliamentar ian and a bright lawyer. The Times is the only one of the great New York dalies that had tho courage to express its honest opinion of the Jersey Lily's boastod beauty. It says she is simply a good-looking, well mannered woman, such as may be seen upon the streets of New York every day. Murat Masterso.v, of the Prescott ltemorrat, has sold out to a Mr. Martin, from San Francisco, and under the new management the paper has dropped off the fence into the advocacy of "great moral ideas." We wish the new editor success. The Citizen is frightened at the ghost of a revolt against railroad oppression in Arizona, and our contemporary has grounds for its fears. The people of Ari zona will never permit themselves to be plundered and pauperized by monopolies as California has been. They will en courage the building of railroads and the establishment of legitimate corporate en terprises and guarantee to thein the same rights, priveleges and protection that the private citizen enjoys, but no more. They will and concede to these institutions the privelcge of discriminating against indi viduals or communities, or of "charging all the tralfic will bear " Neither will they relinquish their right to exercise control over these quasi public trusts whenever the welfare of the Territory re quires it. A railroad, legitimately con ducted, is a thing to be desired; but a railroad used as a means of oppression and extortion is quite a different thing. The former confers great bonetits upon the communities through which it passes, while the latter has a directly opposite effect. There are hundreds of practical illustrations of these truths. The peopfo are beginning to see and recognize them everywhere and are preparing for a united and open outbreak against the latter chiss of roads. But this does not mean a raid against rail roads fairly and honestly conducted and railroad corporations proposing to conduct their business legitimately and justly have nothing to fear, but much to ex pect, from the people. Ik Tucson, Phoenix and Prescott can not agrwe upon tho capitol question they might compromise on the prettiest town in the Territory, namely; Florence. So far as the population of the Territory is concerned this town is more centrally lo cated than either of tho places named. Beside it is more accessible than either of the other points excepting Tucson, and is the most healthful and pleasant place iu the Territory. The wooden nutmeg makers, under a fresh stroke of piety, are reviving the old Blue Laws, according to the following dis patch: "New Haven (Conn,), Nov. 20. The sacred concert singers and Manager Peck of tho Opera House, and the mana ger and agent of the company, were tried to-day for violation of tho statute of 1784, which provides that "every person who shall bo present at any concert of music, The repletion of mineral veins, the causes of the formation and the deposi tion of the different metals in the many varied forms of crystalizaliou and loca tion, has always been one of deep study and interest to the geologist and miner. Many theories have been advanced to sustain and account for the manv difier ent manifestations of mineral reins and deposits, shown under so many widely diversified circumstances and conditions. One belief after another has been pre sented and defended by proof and argu ment, and yet, with all the advancement of human thought, and the deep study of scientific men, the first oause of the for mation of a large class of minerals is not clearly revealed, as is the determining in fluence of many other productions of Na ture's creative hand. Prominent among the many widely dif ferent theories advanced recently are the aqueous, or solution theory, the eruptive, or volcanic theory, and the electric theory. Each one of these principal philopophies has its friends and defenders, and can present many strong proofs of its verity and correctness. It may be found, when the whole truth is known, that all may be in a measure correct, and that to no one alone is the diversified result due. It is more than probable that each and all of theso different forces were acting alter nately and in unison to produce the won derfully diversified deposits of mineral that are now daily revealed to the minor under so many new and strange forms, full of interest and study. As the wonderful power and almost omnipresent influence of electricity is be coming, in a measure, better known, there is a growing tendency toward the belief that it was ono of the most potent agencies that caused the minerals held in solution by gasses and water, to be de posited as they are now revealed. The laws of Nature tend to work ever in the same direction, and under the same con ditions tho result in each division, are endless duplicates, forever repeated,, but the marvelous diversity witnessed in every line and branch of creative activity, can hs readily accounted for by the influence of disturbing causes, and the interfering circumstances everywhere present in Na ture's vast iabratory. A thousand forces and activities are struggling together, each iu its own direction true to itself and its law, but modified by the conflict and potency of powers, equally strong and determined. In the copper mines, copper being one of the friendly metals to electricity, there are often found strong proof of the agency of this active and all-pervading motor. There are found frequently thin sheets of pure copper, deposited as if by an electro plating process, and it is safe to assume that many ot the forms of crystalization of minerals are largely, if not wholly due Territory of Arizona, Executive Djjeaktment. In pursuance of a time-honored cus tom, and the renoniniondation of His Ex cellency, the President' of the United States, I appoint Thursday, November 30th, A. D. 1882, as a day for especial thanksgiving. The citizens of the Territory are earn estly requested to abstain from their us ual pursuits, and in public as well as pri vately give thanks that our industries have been so generously rewarded the past year; that an abundant harvest has been gathered; that the herds that graze in our valleys and over the hills have been free from disease and greatly in creased in numbers; that the mines have yielded vast treasure; that neither hurri cane, tornado, famine, nor pestilence has visited us; that the air has been pure, and the rains abundant; that the enter prises for the development of our resour ces have rapidly progressed; that railroads have been completed, whereby the East and West have been more closely united; that the interests of education have been zealously fostered, morality promoted and peace, law and good order generally pre vail. In observing this day let us not forget to show sympathy for the afflicted and re lieve the distresses ot tho poor in our midst. Done at Prescott this teuth day of November, A. D. 18S2. F. A.

The refunding of the public debt at three per cent, not only proves that the United Slates can borrow all the money it wishes at as low a rate as Great Britain, who.se credit lias heretofore been tho hihest on the STiobt;, but dem onstrates the fact that by funding our debt at three per cent., and disposing of the new bonds at. par, we really get a lower rate than the English govern ment does. Tha British loan was dis posed of at a considerable figure below par. This fact brings the actual inter gst paid to something over three per Dent. The United Slates, therefore, enjoys better credit than any olhei country in the world. E2 Absolutely Pure. This powder never varies. A marvel of purity, strength and wholesoineness.
