Although the Times only yesterday
morning warned the people that the
"bunco steerer" was abroad again, we
are already ptaoed a psstiss 1 Mr
port a case of "losing taken in." Yea
terday morning a cattleman, who
came in from Tucson on hi way to
Denver, having a few leisure, hours on
his hands decided to crow the Rio
Grande and pay a visit to our sister
city. He wont; he is sorry; he is out
On the street car he made the ac
quaintance of a glib aud smooth
tongued stranger, who was also going
to visit Juarez for the first time. He
eaid that he had come from Fort
Worth and while on the way out here
had seen a very clever trick practiced
with cards. The two left the car to
gether when it arrived otrolado and
took a stroll through the atreets of the
town. While ou this tight-seeing ex
pedition they met another stranger,
and the Fort Worth man was so en
thusiastic over his card trick that he
desired to initiate the new comer also.
It was the old came ot drawing a
marked card. The AruonUn had the
first draw and, of courre, pulled on
the marked card. Then number three
said it could not lw done again, and
he was willing to bet $10. The money
was put up, (lie cattleman acting
stakeholder, and the marked card was
again drawn out. Number three,
anxious to retrieve his loss, offered !
bet Fort Worth $50 that it could nut
bo done again. Fort Worth was a lit
tie short of money, but he knew that
his friend, the cattleman, would oblig
him by temporarily loaning him the
amount, which he of course did at
once. He was asked to draw the
marked curd, but alas, inatead of the
iiiirkcd queen he iis s. ten.
The last seen of the man from
Tucson was on this side, when he wa
endeavoring to get some one to cash a
draft for him, so that he could con
tinue on his way to Denver. Ho took
the train yesterday afternoon the sad
dest, maddest and most disgusted man
in this part of the country.

Ex-SherifT Slaughter has received a
letter from Lang, who recently took a
drive of cattle from the San Barnar
ditto ranch to Gila Bend and shipped
them from that point. In his letter
he states that when he reached Giia
Bend he Insdc overtures to the com
pany to take hit stock in to Ln An
Hviea and that they accepted his'crmi.
He also states that his cattle reached
thcrs 2 sd order. H lot fifty
head in a stampede before reaching
Gila Bend and left a man behind to
gather these, which had been done.
The tory that he lou many from
ov-r-driving and other natural caines
hai not a word of truth in it. Lang
further Mated that butchers aro pay
ing six cents now against five cents
sixty days ago, and that they will pav
seven cents before many days. He
wa offered fix cents fur his drive for
April delivry but refused, as he feel
confident of getting neven before sixty
days are over. This price is a sharp
rise, and will be received with much
enthusiasm by Arizona cattlemen.

The Wilcox Stockman voices the
sentiment of the people of that town
regarding county division in the fol

is frank :
"The chances for the passage of the

exceptions, fully understand the im
portance and necessity "f thi mea.

of lomlistone are bitterly opposed to

San Axtosio Assistant U. S. attor
ney Terrell has received information
of libel against five car loads of Mexi
cau silver and lead ores that havo been
seized by Collector Vaughan of Eagle
Pass. The ores in question come
from a mine in the interior of Mexico
aud were consigned to the Denver and
Omaha Smelting company. The
gronnd on which the seizure was
made, is one of great importance to
the mining interests of both Mexico
and the United States. Tho McKin
ley tariff law which places silver on
the f tee list, places a duty of 30 per
ton on lead. As in the natural state
the pilfer and lead ores often occur
in the same body, the law provides
that if any asseay of the ore shows
silver predominating, the ore shall be
clacsed as silver ore and visa versa.
The ore in question, silver and lead
were the products of two eeperate
mines mixed together so as to give
silver the predominance, in the hope
of getting the lead ore into the United
States and avoid the payment of the
hravj dues. Thi value of the cargoes
of the detained cars is estimated at
$2.O00, and the duty on the purely
led ore is estimated t $1500.

less than 7000. Why should Cochise
be divided and Pima left intact?
The Wilcox Stockman, speaking for
the county divisioniela makes no ar
guments in favor of it that will hold
water. It places much stress upon
the assertion that no offices havo been
given to the country to be embraced
in the county of Miles. This i not
substantiated by the facts.
The Legislature contains a largp
majority of its members from CochUe
county who reside in the proposed
county of Miles. There are but two
members in fact who do not belong
there, C. S. Clark of Tomb-tone and
Burr of Bishee. Mr. Vickers has all
ot ids cauls iuturesU in that proposed
county, although he lives most of his
time in TombKtone For two years
past N. A. Gilman, a resident of the
town of Witoox.has held the most im
portant office in the gift of tho people,
and he was re-elected to that office for
h term of two years more at the re
cent election. E. U. Monk hits for
four years held the oflice of Probate
Judtfe and Superintendent of Schools
in the county. The Board of Super
vicars is composed of men represent
ing either end of the county. As far
as county roads are concerned, th east
em end of Cochise has a reputation of
having the finest natural roads of any
part of Arizona and a dollar was never
asked for roads that it was not cheer
fully granted. More money has been
paid out in hunting crinii als in the
limits of the proposed county of Mile
than two dollars to one pant in the
proposed county of Cochise. The
spiteful disposition shon in not
wanting "New Cochise" to annex any
of Pima, proves tho work to be born of
a revengeful spirit and not for the

I happened to be a guest of the String

their residence one night, when it was so
dark that that I conld see nothing but the
glimmer of the light in their cabin, I rode
for it through brush and brier, and when
I reached it halloed in the usual country
style Immediately the light, which carat
from the open door, was shut off by two
human forms, and I was bid to " 'light

The family was Just preparing to eat
sapper, and a savory mess ot pork and
potatoes was being dished up. I was in
vited to join them Li their meal, inring
which I was pumped pretty dry of all I
Lnew about the affairs of tho town, which
was too far off to be visited by any of
