Alfkb Terry joins Gen. Grant in aslnnsr for Fit John Porter's relief. The wine yield of Napa county, Cali fornia, this year, was 2.644,000 gallons. Thi president has appointed Charles Aloxander register of the land office at Tucson. The clatter of car wheels will be hoard in this valley before the sun of another summer sets. This is official. THE people ot Arizona win treat me railroads justly, and will only insist that the former shall return the compliment. The Tariff Commission recommends reductions that amount to about 20 per cent of the whole tariff, as it now stands. Bctler is carrying his war against Hoar into Washington and is endeavor ing to enlist the administration on his side. A chinaman was officially executed at San Rafael, California, on the 8th for murdering a fellow convict at San Quan- tin, in 1880. arrr . 1 Thk secretary of the navy says if the government would build a navy he would have a subject to report on. This is a cruel sarcasm. Ben Bctler calls himself the "repub lican governor of Massachusetts." That party, bad as H is, does not deserve such punishment as this. If we can't have Judge Anderson for speaker of the next house, we are in favor of raising a Rowe over all other candi dates, since Move Wicks declines. The western press, with few exceptions. regard the bill . giving Chinese laborers the right to pass through this country, as &n attain rt tn nullify the anti-Chinese act. Arizona gets get $20,Oo6 of the Indian appropriation bnt she would prefer to do nate her prorata of the appropriation, to gether with her Indians, to some other section. Of the many sad events crowded into the brief history of Florence, none have occasioned more sincere and wide-spread sorrow than did the untimely death of Joseph Collingwood. Although a resi dent and business man of Florence from the timo the first stone in her commercial foundation was laid, his acquaintance ex tended to all parts of tiie Territory and everywhere he had friends, won and held steadfast by his personal worth and com manding individuality, who will regret, no less sincerely than we, his demise. His judgement was always tempered by justic and he never became oblivious of that sublimest of the divine commands, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." He was public-spirited and enterprising, and to him as much, if not more than to any other man, is due the settlement of this section and the development of its varied resources. The distinguishing traits of his character were generosity and kindness. Derserv- charity was never denied assistance by him or a worthy person refused a favor, and it may have been as truthfully said of him as it was beautifully said of Int;er soll by his brother, "should each one for whom he did loving service lay but one flower upon his bier, he would sleep be neath a wilderness of blossoms to-night." In brief, he was a manly man within the beat meaning of the term, and . we shall not be permitted to look upon his like soon again. ihe Enterprise tenders a real sympathy to the sorrowing family. Postmaster-Gen eb ajl Howe recom mends the abolition of postage on news papers, and an increase of postage en fourth-ckss matter, which includes pack ages of irerchandise. He 'also recom mends the consolidation of the postal and telegraph service and the establishment of postal savings banks for the accommo dation of of the working classes. In sup porting this recommendation, he says: "The American people are apt to earn but not wiso to save, and the easy intro duction to the art of saving is to provide an easy and safe means of saving. The post office is near to every citizen; the savings bank must always be remote from most. The post office need not be a sub stitute for the savings bank, nor its rival, but its feeder; a place here small de posits with slow accretions may slowly grow into larger ones, then to be trans ferred to savings banks on loiujer terms and with larger earnings." We remember that the Tucson Citizen, soon after receiying its new power press from Chicago, a year since, came out strongly in favor of reducing the freight rates of the Southern Pacific. " The char ges on the press over the 220 miles of road between Deming and Tucson were more than double what they were over the 1,600 miles of road between Chicago and I Dereiirie. Our contemporary did not seem to think, at that time, that a forced reduction of freight rates would prevent the building of other railroads in this Territory. But then its editor had no political ambition, nor had the solid argu ments of the monopoly sack been breught to bear upon him. This may account for the difference between his opinion then and now. A great many members of congress have expressed themselves in favor of the two cent postage law and the bill will be introduced at once. The postal depart mont receipts now exceed, in amount, the department and mail service expenses. From present indications, it is probable that the proposed new law will be passed before and take eii'ect on the 1st of Jan uary neit. The Mi,ter advocates dividing Arizona somewhere near the geographical center and making two Territories of it. Such a move, it says, will put an end to sec tionalism, all of which might be true But it would also prolong our political minority a decade or more, and sectional ism, objectionable as it is, would be pre ferable to the latter. It is singular but true that men often write books on subjects they know the least about. Greeley's book on farming and Aaron's book on leaching ores, are striking illustrations of this fact. But then if Aaron had been compelled to write a book on a subject he did know something about he would ' not have be come an author. The Russian senate has decided that Jews shall not hold office in the Czar's empire, and the Prefect of St. Peters burg has ordered the police to permit no Jews to remain within the city except those who have an official permit. If the Jews should withdraw all their capital from Russia the Russian government would discover its mistake. Pinal county can boast of many excel lencies and premium possessions. There can be found within her borders the best cattle ranges, the most productive agri cultural lands, the finest fruits, the hand somest ladies, the richest mines and a brace of the d nest rascals that ever dodged a hempen halter. senator saunders Has introduced a bill for the division of Dakota Territory After the division is accomplished it is pro posed to make Southern Dakota a state, and to insure the success of the latter measure, it will be agreed that the admis sion to statehood shall not take place till after the next presidential election. Death of Joseph Colliugwood. Washinoton Territory and New Mexi co are both knocking for admission to statehood, but we fear the latter cannot knock laud enough to be heard. Her politics are too uncertain. Work has been commenced on the pro posed railroad from San Diego to Cala biisaa. This would indicate that the en terprise is a genuine one and not mere newspaper talk, as has been charged. The French papers declare that "Egypt is too large a morsel to be swallowed at one gulp, even by England." This looks as thoueh France had become dissatisfied with England's Egyptian policy. A Vermont company has undertaken to build a narrow gauge railroad from Fort Worth to a point on the Rio Grande. Legislative regulation does not seem to interfere with railroad construction in Texas. THE bar of the .territory are a unit in favor of the establishment of county courts and are urging the matter on the attention of legislators. There will prob ably be no serious opposition to the meas ure in the legislature. Uncle Sam is called upon to pay whisky bill for the Tariff Commis sion. At ten ceuts a drink, the eastern price, that amount would buy thirty-five thousand drinks. Ye Gods! what a thirsty crowd that must have been. We notice that some of our confreres who have the greatest reputation for bril liancy, write their editorials with scissors. Borrowed lustre is very uncertain gentle man. Better be content with your own even if it should be a little dim. A grandson of Clayborne F. Jackson coventor of Missouri at the beifiuniiiK of the war, shot and killed a woman at St Louis on the 10th inst. He had been in timate with her before she became th wife of a mau named Hall. He now lies in limbo. A dispatch from Chicago reports the following interesting interview with Jay Hubbell: "Are you in favor of Civil Ser vice reform?" "Yes, sir, I am in favor of allowing every man to hold an office he likes, as long as he likes. Give him his salary as long as he wants it, and when he gets through present him with a chro- mo." "Aro you going to abolish the one per cent, assessment scheme?" "That assessment business was no innovation. It is an evil handed down from the demo crats in the days of Jackson. Two years ago I was a bully fallow. Then I made the assessment; then nobody kicked. I have caught it pretty well, right and left, from all sides. Time will make all things even." Secretary Tellki: has ordered th In dian commission to prohibit all the "old heathenish" dances and festivities that tend to excite the Indians' passion for war, and to take steps to have them taught the arts and pursuits of civilized life. If this policy could be successfully enforoed it would be very good, but history does not encourage one to believe it can. About the only agency that lias proven effectual in civilizing the more blood thirsty tribes of Indians is gun powder and lead, judiciously distributed. Departed this life at Florence, A,. T., December 10th, at 7 a. m., Joseph Col lingwood, age 46 years, a native of Flor ence, Erie county, Ohio. Mr. Colling wood was well and favorably .known throughout Southwestern Arizona, where he was engaged in mercantile pursuits for the last thirteen years. He om menced business here under the firm name of E. N. Fish & Co. . which was the first store opened in Florence, and by his enterprise and liberality contributed argely to the prosperity of the Gila val ley. Mr. Collingwood endeared himself to the hearts of the people by his liberal and generous disposition. His hand and purse were ever open to the poor and needy and no one gave more liberally for any charitable or educational purpose than he. A little over a month aeo he was confined to his bed, but within the last ten days previus to his death typhoid pneumonia set in and his sickness was dangerous. 11 that medical skill, or kind and willing hands could do to min ister to his wants was done, but Provi dence decided otherwise. He leaves an estimable wife and three little children wno nave tne sympatny ol every one in this community. B tion capacity sufucient, 300 men could be employed stoping ore on the 700 foot level alone. Two years and a half was c msumed in partially stoping the 350 foot level. The reserves in the mine are simply enormous. Tlie reduction works now in use, a twenty stamp mill with eight Frue concentrators, is wholly inad equate to such a property, and while we do not speak by the card, we have little doubt that one of the early moves will be the erection of a 200 stamp mill on the Gila river to be connected wjth the mine by rail. The water at the mill is hardly sufficient for the present works. The daily shipment of ore from the mine to the mill is 65 tons. Savants are still at work trying to de vise some plan for working the base ores which this mine produces. The ore is native silver and sulphide mixed with galena, zinc and every known base metal. The gangue is porphyry, heavy quartz and black spar. In some places in the mine the quartz and spar occur entirely separate and distinct from the porphyry, and in other places it is mixed. The ore occurring in porphyry concentrates read ily with satisfactory results, as high as 95 per cent, of the value being saved. The quartz and spar have nearly as great spe cific gravity as the metal it contains so th?.t concentration is not the process for this character of ore, and it is sorted and left at the mine to be utilized as future wisdom and experience may direct. Be sides this character of ore they have a fine, large and rich body of tree milling chloride ore in the surface which can be worked when pans and settlers are added to the works. There is no danger of Arizona losing its reputation as a silver producer while the Silver King holds out and there is noth ing to warrrtt the impression that it will cease producing for years to come. It has already produced more silver than the entire Territory of New Mexico and has virgin ground enough to more than double its output. The "Bilk" an adjacent mine owned by the Mowry Mining company is a prom ising property. They ltave a shaft down about '600 feet expecting to strike the King ore chute at about 1000 feet There are other properties in the vicin lty of Pinal and Silver King that will when railroads open up the county, be come profitable bullion producers but the King stands alone in any country.

The funeral of Mr. Collingwood took place from the family residence, at 10 'clock Monday morning, and over five hundred people, who had known and es teemed him, followed the remains to the Catholic Church and thence to the grave, where the last sad rites were per formed by the Rev. Father Girard. Our business houses were all closed during the funeral, as a mark of respect for the la mented dead, and the hearts of our peo pie seemed touched by a common sorrow Upon his return to Prescott, Secretary Van Arman denied using any such lan gunge toward .Hon. U ft. Uury, as was credited to him in an interview published in the Albuquerque Beview. The denial was brought to the attention of the Be view and the latter insists that it reported the Secretary correctly, then adds: "Mr. Van Arman appears to be a gentleman of an unfortunate disposition toward volu bility, and should, hereafter, keep hii mouth shut when he travels." The members of the congressional com merce committee, are grieved, it is said, over the president's remarks relative to the River and Harbor bill. But they are not sufficiently "grieved" to refrain from preparing another bill of the same char acter for this year, it seems. The Iadeprndent very truthfully says that "Next to Cochise, Pinal is the most prosperous milling county in the Terri tory. Her bullion shipments are large and regular." With the same amount of development and same number of mills, Pinal would stand side by side with Co chise in bullion out-put. They are the banner miner:. oniinti' S if the Territory. At Lavines park, on last Sabbath about twelve hundred denizens of Tucson witnessed the disgusting spectacle of Spanish bull fight, and, according to newspaper report, highly enjoyed th brutal affair. We supposed the people of this country had progressed beyond th harbarous amusement ot the dark ages, but such exhibitions as that above men tioned, prove the supposition to be incor rect. The house committee on foreign affairs has instructed Kasson to urge upon con gress immediate consideration of the Nic aragua canal bill. If congressmen do tiieir duty, this bill will be very promptly sat down upon. The government cannot afford to guarantee $2,250,000 annual in come on an enterprise it could not coirtrol and congressmen who support such proposition will, or should be, left hom when the next elerUnn comes. The will of the deceased was opened Tuesday, and read . It bequeaths all the property to his widow and children and names Judge J. W. Anderson, of Flor ence, as executor of the estate and guar dian of the children, to act without bonds and to make such disposition of the prop erty and business as he may mar deem best. TIIE SILVER KING. Vlait to thia Famous Producer. ilver Hon. J. F. Knapp and J. A. Whitmore. of the Citizen, have just returned from visit to tne lamous Oliver ivmg mine. Through the courtesy of the Superinten dent and under the guidance of the effi cient foreman, Robert Bowen. who has been with the property now for many years, they visited the 700-foot and other levels in this truly wonderful mine. They feel a good deal as the Queen of Sheb did after beholding the glory and the wis dom of Solomon that the half had not been told them. It is one of the few properties which the "long bow" of the average frontiersman is unable to over draw, and in relation to which extrava gant expressions seem commonplace. The property is opened up to a depth of 700 feet The only work done on this level has been to chamber it out preparatory to stoping. The chamber is now about 100 x!50 feet, and there is ore in every face How much larger the ore chute will provi on this level none can tall. Certainly the outlook for the 800 level when that is opened up, whi;h will probably done the first of next year, is most flat tering. There is no level in the mine in which the ore has been exhausted, an some idea of the capacity of the mine for producing ore can be surmised when mv Hist if there wi-k h'iiiit' and reduc- Lore. I am satisfied that there is no world of eternal pain. If there is a world of joy. so much the better I have never put out the faintest star of human hope that ever trembled in the night of life. There was time when 1 was not; after that 1 was; now I am. And it is just as probable that I shall live again as it mu - that 1 could have lived before I did. Let it go. Ah! but what will be life. The world ill be here. The page of history will be open. 1 he walls of the world will be adorned with art, the niches with sculp- j ure; music will be here' and all there is of life and joy. And there will be homes here, and there will be a common fear. Love will be here, and love is the only bow on life's dark cloud. Love was the rst dream of immortality. Love is the morning and evening star. It shines upon the child; it sheds its radiance upon the peaceful tomb. Love is the mother of beauty the mother of melody, the aiusic is its voice. Love is the builder of very hope, the kindler of every fire upon every hearth. Love is the enchanter, the magician who changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings and queens of common clay. Love is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart.

Already from end to end of the Territory, wherever water can be had, stock ranges are being established, and from Utah to Sonora a thousand hills and dales are coy ered witn bands ot lat cattle. There is no surer road to wealth in Arizona Terri tory than the stock business. With acli mate unsurpassed in tne L nion, and a ready and lucrative market always at hand, the stock grower in this southern country finds his lines cast in pleasant and profitable places. With a quiet home in some beautiful valley, he can take the world easy as he reclines beneath the shade of his vine and fig-tree and watches the steady increase of his property. No deep snows necessitate the housing of his bands in winter, nor do the destructive "northers" of the Texas plains disturb the serenity of his mind or affect his bank account at any season. The life -of Arizona stock raiser is an enviable one. Indian raids are over, and most of the festive cowboys are now engaged in chas ing shadowy steers on the other side of the Styx. The only thing that prevents Arizona from becoming one of the leadine stock countries of the West is the limited water supply. v herever living water caa be had, there are bands of sleek cat tle; but there are vast stretches of plain and valley yet unoccupied. With arte sian water, those deserted wastes would soon be filled with thousands of cattle. and millions of dollars added to the wealth of our Territory. Independent.
