During the time that copper was advancing so rapidly, as a result of the manipulations of tho cop per syndicate, the Copper Queen Com pany derived an immense fortune from its property, which it had developed to a large extent. Adjoining this, property were several mining claims known as the 'Seven Claims." owned by one James Daly, a dissolute sort of chap, lie made no effort to develop his property further than to keep up the work necessary to hold his claim. The Queen Company mada him several offers but Daly refused to sell. One day Daly quarreled with a Mexi can in the employ of the Copper Queen Mining Company and inflicted several bad wounds with a pick. When the Constable, named Hawthorne, approached Daly's cabin to arrest him the latter drew his Winchester ritie to bis shoulder, killing Hawthorne, instantly. Daly escaped and the Copper Queen Company offered a re ward of $1503 for his capture. Thinking he would escape to Mesico, the company spent large sums of money seeking there fur him. Pubiic sentiment was strong against Dal, and had he been captured lie would have been lynched. On September 2 Andrew Mehan, a former resident of Bisbee, met Daly on Union avenue in Pueblo, and instantly recognized hiiii. Mehan was once a Dep uty Sheriu" iu Bisbee. and Daly at once jumped to the conclusion that Mohan was after him. The result of their meeting was a proposal from Daly to sell his min ing property to Mehan. Mehan had no money, but pe vire.l. through a lawyer friend, sufficient cash to close the trade. The records show that the consideration was S100 for nine mining claims, situated by iue aids of tho Copper Queen Com pany.

Xt is fair to assume that, with tho black eye sustained from former management, this property passed into the hands of its present Kansas City owners at a price fur below the lowest valuation of ore iu sight, and that the' 'ground floor" tenants have in fact turned their investment many times over before a single stamp has dropped, or a single share of slock been put upon the market. But it takes nerve to invest in mines with a record of failure behind them.flki matter what theirtietual merit may bo, and not a man iu Arizona will begrudgo the plucky Kansas City men all tho enormous profits to which their venture seems almost certaiu to lead.

The Bulletin editor had the pleasure of meeting "Shot (W Smith at Grant this week. Mr. Smith is a pleasant and interest ing gentlemen, intelligent, and has not the wild and wooly appearance that his" nick name would suggest. He came to Ari zona as a Lieutenant in the army in the early days, but quit the government service, so that he might have full swing iu a new conntry. He has been engaged in mining mostly ever since, and now has a cabin aud a few cattle iu a picturesque cation in tho foothills of the Graham mountains, where bo lives alone, except when extending hospitality to sojourning prospectors and cowboys who chance to pass his way. Several time3 in the past his place has been attacked by Indians and a few red skins have been sent to the happy hunting grounds by his steady nerve and correct aim, and although never scratched himself, he Jias buried two or three mining partners who were I sent to the other side by Apache bullets. ' Twenty years ago he was in Tucson when a red hot newspaper war came oa j during a campaign. He had lioen driven j from camp to town by marauding Indians nnd was out of a job. One of the candi dates for congress, backed by a gang of desparadoes and rustlers, who were num erous at that time in the old pueblo, had threatened to destroy the old Arizonan office, aud Smith was employed to guard and protect the property for 610 per night; he marched to and fro in front of that newspaper office, with a shot gun on his shculiier. nightly for more than a week, depositing his gun, drawing his pay, and taking a cocktail in Charley Brown's saloon every morning before breakfast. Since that time he has been known as "Shot Gun" Smith. He now owns several valuable mines in the Clark mining district between Fort Grant and Cedar Springs, but is desirous of selling out. so that ho may take a trip to the states. Phenix Ei'pubKcmi. Few of our people are aware of tho existence of onff ot the most important enterprises in Central Arizona. That old pioneer, Wm. A. Hancock, assisted by L. H. Orme, J. D. Monihon and N. O. Mur phy, in 188S, organized the Agua Fria Water aud Land Company, with a capi tal stock of $3,000,000, for the purpose of storing in reservoirs the water of the Agua Fria River, iu order that it might be used for irrigating the large body of land that lies ou the both sides of that river, that on the east, side reaching down to the line of the Arizona Canal, within ten railesoithe city of Thenix. The lower reservoir site is nt Frog Tanks, and with a dam 100 feet high, will store eight billion cubic feet of water. The upper site, tan miles further up the river, with a dam 150 feet high, will store thirty billion cubic feet of water. The water shed of the river, and its trib utaries, above the lower dam, contains 153,0i3 square miles, and with au annual rainfall of 1;" inches, it will afford fifty billion cubic feot, or an ample snp plyof water for irrigation of 150.000 acres. Tho main canal will be 45 feet wide on the bottom and 55 feet at 'the surface of the water, six feet from the bottom. The grade will be two feet par mile. At the Calderwood Butte, twelve miles below the dam, the water for tho land on the west side of the river will be carried across the river in large pipes, supported by a sus pension bridge, with n fall of 50 feet in crossing the stream. The construction of the dims and oanals, including forty miles of laterals, will involve the expend iture of probably one million four- hun dred thousand dollars. Dr. J. M. Evans, well aud favorably known as a man of souud business judg ment, has undertaken to raise the money required to complete both the canals and the dams, upon the bonds ot the company, secured by mortgage upon the whole property, to be furnished in time that tha work may be commenced by the first of May next, and be finished within three years. The surveys, estimates and plats have bsen made by Captain Hancock, assisted by H. K. Leonard. It is understood that Chief F.ngincer Hancock will again Jake tho field to finish some of the details of the preliminary work not yet completed, in a few days. Mr. Leonard is engaged upon a map that will show not only the dam sites and canals, with the land to be irrigated, but the extent of the water sheds. ! The addition of 150,030 r.cres to the j arabla lands in this country, will be ot immense benefits to this city aud its snr- j roundings, especially wuen tho accom plishment otthe work will involve the ex penditure of nearly a million and a half of money. The settlers that will be at tracted to the country when it is known that there is 150,000 acres of fine land as any to be found on the face of the earth, that will soon be supplied with an abund ance of water, nnd open to location at 81. 25 per acre, will add very materially to the wealth of the county.' It safe to say that within five veara tho development of this land will add $5,000,000 to the wealth of this county.

Tombstone Prospector. From Joseph Pascholy, who yesterday came ove from Huachuca, the Pros pector lea rna further particulars of the recent fight with a bear, wherein Sergeant Anson nearly lost his life and from the effects of which he is still confined to the hospital. It seem3 that the unfortunate man had gone out to hunt deer and had become separated from--his companions. He went to spring. of water where he knew that the deer wore used to water and waited but a few minutes liefore seeing one coming towards the spring from the opposite direction. He kneeleddown aud kept his eye upon the deer, while behind liim a bearjcas v, .telling his movements. She evidently had cubs near by, for as soon as getting near enough she sprang upon his right leg and tore it iu a hor rible manner. Ilo tunisd nnd shot the brute but where he hit her he does not know. She arose upni his hind legs and with one blow ol hrr w struck the gun away from hiin and planted the claws of the other toot on his face. He realized the danger he was in and as ' she neared him again with extended jaws and while he felt her hot breath he thrust his right hand and arm into her throat aud en deavored to reach his kuife with his left but could not. All of this time the teeth i of the animal .were closed through the : flesh of his arm like a vice, but being a ! powerful man lie held her paws away from him aud they both went down to gether. In this position they rolled to I the bottom of the hill, he fighting with, i his left hand and many times having the I best of it. in the meantime yelling at the top of his voiec. His comrades heard hia cries and went to his rescue as rapidly as possible. When the bear saw them she let go of Anson's arm and deliberately ran up the hill to where the encounter began, and seizing the carbine she had struck from Anson's hands, took it in her teeth and went off into the brush. Anson was taken immediately to the pot.t where his wounds were dresssed. His face will be disfigured for life, nnd his arm where the teeth lacerated the flesh resembled a piece of raw leef. Anson is a powerful man and to this fact he owes his life; had he been less power ful the boar would have made short work of him.

Mr. Rich in conversation with a Repub lican reporter said that he has instruc tions from the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to get a decided proposition from the citizens of this valley with respect to the donation of a site for the school. "It only rests with the people now," said Mr. Bich, "whether they have tlie school here or not. It is important, too, that action be taken m that matter soon, as we want to get an appropriation for improvements before the present Congress adjourns. There is some money on hand now, so that we can go riyht to work, but not a sufficient amount to make the improve ments that will be necessary on a new location. The appropriation made was intended for improvements at Ft.

A number of citizens met yesterday afternoon at the office of the Maricopa Loan and Trust Company to confer with Prof. M.

Prof. Rich informed those present that he had received a telegram from Commis sioner Morgan, instructing him to get a proposition from the citizens for a do nation of not less than eighty acres withir. three or four miles of the city of Phenix to the Government foe Indian sohool pur poses. In tlie matter of the appropriation of School Section 36, Mr. Rich said that he had been informed that the section was not available. " - "The question,"' be said, "was one in whioh the people should take interest as it would be of great benefit to the city aud valley by reason of the expenditure necessary for its maintenance. It was the aim of the government to establish a large industrial school here, nt which Indian pupils from every section of the Terri tory would come.

We urge upon the people who are com plaining of hard times to go into the country aud grow something. Many, who stand idly upon the streets waiting for something to turn up, should ' go out and turn up the soil, plant it with seed and see how nature responds with a har vest not equalled in any other land under the sun. There are thousand of acres that may be bought at low rates and there is no reas on why we should not have the most pros perous people Here ot any land tliat is. This new boom is uot coming by sell ing acres to new comers, but by cultivat ing them in fruit trees and vines. AVhat right, w ask in all candor have people to think about hard times, who live in a country where the orange, fig, raisin grape, lemon, lime, peach, apricot, date and banana grow to perfection?

I received a letter ask ing me to send the names of several com mission houses here iu the city. I did so and a correspondence was struck up which resnited in the New York firm ordering a shipment of ten pounds ot dif ferent kinds of fruits and vegetables. This was sent and immediately nn order was telegraphed to ship twenty boxes, aud this was followed by an order for a ton of vegetables, whioh we shipped last week. "We are now shipping from thirty to forty crates of strawberries a day, and the appearances are that the shipments will grow heavier. ''Telegraph advices from Chicago in form me that, peas and beans there bring $6 to $3 per bushel, and a 35-pound lot of tomatoes brings $2.50. Shipments of crates of thirty boxes of strawberries have netted $1G in Kansas City and SU in Chicago. Shipments were made to Den ver and Pnebio, Colorado, whioh brought 38 cents per quart. The shipments are made by express direct from the grower to the purchaser without the interven tion of a middle man. Our rates are 6 cents a pound to Chicago and 7 cents to New York. "We expect a brisk business iu this line, but there are two classes oE people who must nrst be educated to secure an ex tensiveness of shipping that is, first, the growers must know they can sell their produce of this season in the East, and the Eastern people msst become aware that such produce . will appear in their markets from Southern California.''

His funeral will take place from the residence of his brother to-morrow, au A. O. U. V. lodge of that city taking part in the last sad ceremonies. The deceased leaves a father, mother, two brothers and two sisters to mourn his loss. y The simple and unaffected habits of and characteristics of the deceased editor deeply impressed, not alone his personal friends and acquaintances but widely built up for him, wherever Tho Stockman circulated, a imputation for manliness, honor, truthfulness and moral courage seldom equaled and never excelled in the journalistic profession. It may be said, in no calling are the temptations to earn notoriety by indulgence in exaggerations, misinformation and cuuningsophisuis,and iu none where vicious selfishuess, irre sponsible aggression against citizens, hyprocritical simulations of purity, justice and patriotism are so abundantly practic ed as in the columns of the newspaper. The deceased pursued his labors wholly unaffected by such temptations. An editor who show's ability in his editorial columns, a refined sense of justice in his selections, and withal exhibits a sturdy uprightness in his views on public ques tions, becomes an honor to his 'profession as well as one of the most respected and useful members of the community in which he is located. It is a sad consolation to his relatives and friends, his many readers and his brother editors in the Territory", that the' time has come, so early in his promising career of usefulness, compelling these ut terances of the justly earned eucominms iu his memory.

As the Electric Engineeer reports, a recent addition to the application of elec tricity to mining is a portable device for detecting the presence and nature of a mineral where tho latter is exposed iu the rock cir earth. This apparatus, which is intended for the use of prospectors more particularly, consists ot a battery and spark coil, which are enclosed iu a box, and the conductors are two platinum points. It is evident that if thee points be con nected to a conducting body and the circuit ruptured, a spark will be formed the flame and color of which will give some indication of the pature of the body which the electrodes have touched. Thus, by placing the two points againBt a rock containg metal in a free state, its presenoe may be detected by merely ap plying one electrode and passing yie oth er rapidly over the surface. The apparatus, it is said, enables a no vice or ''tenderfoot" to pick np float rock3 on the hills and tell iustautly whether they contain mineral or not; and even the comparative quantity in a rough way. By means of this instrument, also, it is possible to find a lost "lead" in a shaft oi cut by applying it to the walls. Anoth er use to which it may be put to is the sorting of ores, t he color of name enab ling the sorter to separate the different kinds. Pncnlx Brooms. uptj., to r&uder through their represent atives the verdict of a Coroner's jury up on tlieir murdered citizens, and again through its recommendations to appeal for that relief for which they have cried so long and in vain. From almost the same spot where but a little time since the invalid Hardia roat his death, come the bodies oi the latest viotims of the San Carlos renegades. "The evidence iu this inquest proves the assertion made by the Coroners jury iu the Hardie case. "It was claimed then, notwithstanding the denial of the military authorities, bands of Indians were constantly roving back and forth from the reservation to Mexico. This is proved by the fact that their camping place was found, showing indisputable evidence of long and con stant use. "It was claimed that the Indian scouts employed by the army are constantly treacherous, deceiving their officers, snp plying information, . provisions and am munition to their hostile brethren, and in time joining them in, their raids. This is proven by the faot that an officer near the spot, wnen shown foot tracks by the settlers, was made to believe and assert that they were those of the scouts them selves. "The murder of Hardie, the finding of the trail, the long-used camp, the failure of the scouts to fiud the hostiles when in their vicinity and the killing of Robinson and Bridger prove undoubtedlv that In diana are off the reservation and hundreds of miles from it, and the ignoranoe of the authorities oi tn raot as well as proof of their inability to remedy it. "it is m evidence' that both men are shot in the head, one in the exact middle of the forehead. Hardie was shot in the heart, evidence of skilled marksmanship as well as possession of improved weapons. "ihe last is the supreme mistake of the Government in its dealings with the In dians, the first almost a crime. It is sought as the prime reason for the main tenance of the reservation svstem. to make of the Indian a tiller of the soil, to supply him with the implements and to teach him their use. In this vocation he has no use for the repeating riile and vet it is permitted. He is mustered with the company of scouts, drilled aud taught the use of his weapons and all of the habits and methods of his guards, then mustered out to take the warpath aud practice up on the settler the arts and skill the Gov ernment has taught him, while his broth er takes his place in t he ranks drawing rations for both by presenting his tag, until he in turn takes to the warpath. "Did ever civilization know such folly, such mistakes, such injustice? "With a full knowledge of the subject gained through years of contact with the Apache Indian question, and with the belief that it is our right to demand aud the duty of the Government to accord a full and complete protection. "We earnestly recommend that the In dians of Arizona be at once deprived of the possession and other meaus of ob taining fire arms and Axed ammnnition. and that the system of enlisting the In dians as scouts oe abolished. .

At the Court House public meeting last night to secure au Indian school site near Phenix, superintendent Rich explaiued the Government aim aud plan in its In dian educational efforts. The purpose was to fit our red brother for civilized life, so that he might take his place in the industrial world like any other citi zen, and avoid oo3tlv wars and agencies hereafter. Young Indians were trained at first in the agency schools, book learning and mechanical drill being carefully alternat ed. From these elementary centers it was necessary to promote them to higher institutions where better facilities could be had. Such training places had been successfully established at Hampton, Va., Carlisle, Pa., Albuquerque, J. M.; in Kan sas and Oregon. Another is projected for Ferns, an Diego county, Cal., and the Government wishes to secure one in Salt River valley. Commissioner Morgan had telegraphed for a proposition from Pheuix people to donate at least 80 acres. Territorial Treasurer J. Y. T. Smith of fered the John George tract of 80 acres, two miles south west of town, with -water privilege, for $2,700. Messrs. Unas. Goldman and ii. tu. Kemp were appointed to solicit, the guarantee of at least 40 responsible eitizens that the land needed would be donated.

Low pruning is especially desirable for the vine in Cen tral Arizona, and is imperative for cer tain varieties of the grape. The Muscat of Alexandria.the leading raisingrape.will succeed well under no other treatment; aside from the sun cooking the more ex posed grapes, the fruit will invariably be small and inferior in qnality when the Muscat vine is trained on trellis or arbor. On the other hand the Isabella, Catawba, and one or two wine grapes do better on the trellis, and by being pruned long. Most of the wine grapes, however, re quire close, low pruning, especially the Malvaise, Ziufandel, Burgundy, Sweet Water, Mission, etc. and among shipping and table grapes the Malaga. Tokay, Ross of Peru, etc. In starting the viueyard special care must be exercised in head ing the stalk at about the right leugth front the ground, about eighteen inches. It cut too low it will be found difficult to raise the head higher afterward, and the crop must be largely destroyed for sev eral years to reach the vine if not prop erly done while the vine is young and during the first and second pruning.
