Nothing definite had been heard re garding the death of General &iles up to tho hsur of going to press tonight. The fact that it has not been denied makes its truth more certain, The Prospector would like to hear the sentiment of the public upon the proposition to give a liberal appropria tion to aid Arizona in making a pro par display at the World's Fair. 'The Silver City Enterprise says very tritely: "We can never expect to draw to " oar towns and our valleys the solid -class of people who make good citizens, - it they understand that by such re moval they will leave behind them the schools in which their children are be-' ing admirably educated and will find no others of similar excellence to take their place.

The Bureau of American Republics is informed that the finance minister of Mexico has submitted to the con gress of that Republic a plan for the entire revision of the monetary laws and coinage. as The Calumet & Hecla Copper Min ing Company of Michigan has declared a dividend of $5 per share, aggrega ting 350.000, and making $25 per share within twelve months. This makes $35,350,000 paid by the company from the start. The experiment of bonanza wheat farming, which attained such propor tions in the Northwest a few years ago, is about to be repented in Texas. A company has purchased, and will pro ceed to sow to wheat as rapidly as possi ble, a tries ci 1U.000 rsrss in the Pan handle district. The Board of Supervisors busied themselves this morning in revising the jury lisL They ordered a warrant drawn upon the contingent fund in fa vor of the clerk for 31000 to defray contingent expenses, They also re ceived several petitions from different parties for appointments as road over seers. Mineral concessions, the curse of mining in Mexico, are still being granted. The "Minero Mexicano" pub lishes three that were lately granted viz : one in Jalisco, one in Guerrero and one in the Barranca, District of Sonora, eighteen Kilometros long by ten wide. These concessions are ruin ing the mineral development of Mex ico and should be stopped for Mexico's good. We hear that there is a strong party in the Mexican Congress opposed to them. Becord. CoL Hafford never docs things by halves, an instance of this fact was presented to-day by the purchase by him of a load of antelope and deer which he presented to his friends. The load was brought to town by a Mexi can and consisted f six antelope and two black tail deer. The main guy of the Prospector acknowledges the re ceipt of one of the beauties which will pass into the interior department of our existence with the hope that it may cause our heart to grow to some where near the size of that of the donor. Daring December, 1890, the exports of wheat from San Francisco were f 1,368,000 centals, valued at$I,847,000. Wheat export during the year 1890 aggregated 13.014,000 centals, valued M $17,278,000. The Exports made were "-Mefly to Great Britain, France, Beleuim Na Br""- This shows an increase over 1889 9, ntal and in value of g33.O00. Tho Wen tern Cat Cena. Apart of the nnfinlehiS k oi the census is the enumeration of the cattle on the ranges of the west. This work was not completed, but ha progressed sufficiently to demonstrate that there has been quite a fall off in totals in the last few years. The re ports submitted by the department of agriculture have been somewhat un satisfactory, as was to be expected when the sources cf information were taken intoconsidculon. The census, however, demonstrates the correctness of the general belief that rang cattle have been largely decreasing in num bers. Just what the final figures will show in the way of redaction of totals cannot now be stated, but it is in line with the opinion which has prevailed among the cattlemen for some time past National Stockman and Par mer.

Our mines have main tained their yield. Business has pros pered and the year closes with Mexico at peace with herself and the world, and with.ber revenues steadily increas ing and double what they were ten years ago. We predict another pros perous year in-1891." A Correspondent of the Star writ itng from Fort Huacbuca says: "At a point neir Fort Huacbuca I find our toil and climate not only ad apted to alt the eastern vegetables, but with the aid of irrigation, producing vegetables superior in quality and quan tity to these of the eastern and cen tral western states. I have successfully grown in my garden this year; cabbage' carrots, onions, beets, celery, salsify, tomatoes, squash, green peas, aspara gus, cauliflower, lima beans, early corn, egg plant, artichokes, lettuce, parsnips pumpkins, turnips and water melons, and cantaloupes of different varieties and of the most delicious flavor. The beet also grows wonderfully in this country; they are very large in size and very sweet in flavor; so well adapted to our alakali soil is this vege table that I nm sure It will be grown in the early future -in Arizona on a large scale for sugar. For this reason T have watched its growth with the greatest interest, and the result i fully equal to my most .sanguine expecta tions." Gen. Miles sent a letter to the hos tile asking for a bearing, the Indians tore tha lettler to fragments and said We want no treaty, we are here to fight."

Many local take-offs will be a fea ture of the masquerade ball Feb. 4. Some very odd characters are promis ed at the masquerade ball next month. The masquerade ball at the rink Feb. 4th bids fair to eclipse the recent skating carnival. J. H. Edgecorab, formerly at the Grand Centrel mill, has located at the Gunsigbt mine.

The show by the boys came off last night and netted about three dollars, Admission was fixed at five cents. The shooting of an apple off the head of his son by William Tell was very clever. The gun went off, the boy ducked his head, the apple rolled behind the scenes, where it was picked up and a hole run through it with a round stick after which it was exhibited to the au dience. The show was in reality more enjoyable than many of the Minstrel shows visiting Tombstone, it will probably be repeated in the near fu ture. The Board of Supervisors were en gaged today in the annual accounting with the sheriff,, tax collector and treasurer. Mr. Taffi's a business partner of the brother or Mrs. G. C.

A new product from Kansas is being placet! on the market in Mohave county; it is called Jerusalem corn. The first came from near the city of Jerusalem. The corn is said to make an excellent crop in the dryer portion of the Western part of the state, and the dryer the season the better. A man living in Eden says that his crop of six acres thrashed out twenty-three bushels to the acre, and in weight it equals thirty bushels. Another 'dry" farm in Eastern Colorado, from one and one-half acres, had a yield of forty bushels, MohiT Miner. " OFFICIAL RErOItT, Of ths Board of SnpervUon of CocUIite CouulT.

Tbecensus announcement that ther are 140 religious bodies in the Unit ed States exclusive of many independ ent congregations, will surprise most people whose knowledge of different sects does not embrace more than tenty or twenty-five at the most. There is now telegraphic communi cation with Alamo, Lower California, we learn from the Californian. The National bank of San Diego have re cently invested $45,000 in mines in that camp and much new mining ma chinery is being shipped there by various companies. The question as to whether Dr. Koch the famous Berlin physician has or has not a brother residing in the state of Jalisco is now agitating the local press. The Nacional declares most emphatically that he has; the Two Bepublics is informsd on what it J regards mm ni,oriUr that ha has not. The Germania, the Gorman paper published in Mexico, asjsrts that the Koch residing in Jalisco is in no way connected to the German doc tor, who has so suddenly became famous. Another View, The Indians in Dakota are making a great noise about their starving con dition. The destitution among them is no greater than among the white people of Oklahoma and yet hot little is said about these poor unfortunate white people. The hungry Indian cre ates great solicitude from the govern ment while the starving whites are sim ply creatures of bad luck. -Flagstaff Democrat. A similar restraining order to that served County Treasurer McAllister was served upon the Pima county treasurer on Tuesday last. Mrs. Dr. Willis will brobably leave for the cast Monday next.

If southeastern Arizona could have had the Seventh Cavalry and Forsythe ac their head during the past few years the bleached bones of her pioneers would not now bo strewn over moun tains and valleys. Tbe recent fire in London has recalled a fact which will probably surprise many people, and that is, that the ap paratus in me in the London Fite Brigade is all of the old side-bar pat tern similar to the machines in use in the old volunteer department in this city. A daughter of a distinguished Quaker family of Philapelphia, has married one of the Japanese graduates of Harvard University, much to the horror of her friends and relatives.
