SOUR GRAPES, The Scalping Knife to l)e Used in Wilcox Old Sores to be Settled at the Ballot Box. Smith and Meade the Vic tims of an Unmanly Blow. The following note received today from Wilcox will explain itself. The writer whose name we are not at lib erty to publish, is n prominent Dem ocrat of that town : Wueox,MaylO,lS91 S. C. Bagg. Editor Fkosfector I received yours of the 8th today and cannot forward you the electiou re turns as requested as 1 will be out of town. Mr. Fuel! of the btockman will attend to this matter for you if you will ask it of him. I do not think that there will be many votes cast here and do not think that Smith and Meade will get any of those. It is claimed that had it not been forSmilh the county would have been divided hut winter. It is reported tliat Mark telegraphed to Feler Brady from Washington demanding of him that he stand against the division of Cochise county. At least Mr. Brady received such a uw patch and immediately xvent to work and threw his influence against Norton & Co. Meade is looked upon as one of his lieutenants and one who worked against our interests 1 have talked with Democrats to en deavor to keep them in line but it is no use. Tbey are stubborn in their determination to teach the delegate to let their affairs alone. That there is some truth in the assertions made in the above letter is not be denied. The PsofcPEcroR hap pens to be in a position to know about as much about the sending of the dis patch as either Maik Smith, Mr Meade or Peter Brady. It was rumor ed last Friday that the Wilcoz people would knife Smith on the strength of the telegram tent to Brady, but the Prospector did not think it was aught but idle rumor until todav's mail brought a confirmation of the report The facts of the case are as fellows : Dunne heat of llio controversy over county division, Mr. Yickers, whose strong opposition to a division is a public matter, wrote to a gentleman in this city and stated that a strong appeal by citizens of Mr. Bradj's ac quaintances to him, would leave no doubt in that gentleman's mind of the feeling in Tombstone. The gentleman who received the letter showed it to Msvbral prominent ritizens both Re publicans and Democrats who met in formally and suggested the idea of sending a dispatch to Mark Smith at Washington asking him to wire Brady to stand against the division of Cochise County. This was done, the dispatch was sent by S. C. Dagg and tho names of the citizens signed to it. An ans wer came back the next day from Mr. Smith : "Have wired Brady as yon suggested." There is but one thing to be said in the matter, and that is that if Mark Smith had not acted as he did he would have been false to the trust imposed upon him, for if any man bnew the absurdity of tho division of Cochise county at the present time, it is our delegate to Congress. Mr. Meade weaiobs sure a trong oppo nent of county division and worked as hard as any roan In the community to prevent it. "Whether this action on the part of the county dimionis's i to result disastrously to Messrs Smith and Mesda is a matter of doubt, it be ing to late to argne with the disgruntl ed Wilcox- voters but il behooves the friends of these two gen llemen both in Bisbee atul Tombstone to rally to their support, if they pur pose to stand off the selid front of those who would have ha-1 them fold their hands when the welfare of tbe county was assailed, W .Nelson one of the men blown up by ,blastjU BUbee onMonday-nlght breathed fiuTSIt yesterday.

Marion Aubrey told tbe pathetic story of "Me and my PaL" Mrs. Kieke and Miss Rafferty were showered with glances of approval in lieu of well-merited applause upon finit hiog a vocal duet. A recitation by Miss Howell was a difficult selection well handled. Chas. Granville Johnston told what he knew about reform aud thechurcb. The choir sang several pleasing se lections and Mr. Downs spoke a few fitting words. A repetition of these pleasing gath erings is always welcome. 1 - IGNOBLE SIX-HUNDRED. A Stampede in the Mule Mountains and its Result, A drive of 900 head of steers, to be delivered at Wilcox for J. V. Vickers, bad reached the gap in the Mule mountain, on the way from the south ern part cf the county, on Friday night, when for some unforeseen rea son they stampeded and scattered in all directions. The stampede occurred at about eleven o'clock at night and when daylight came but 238 head were in sight. A stampede to most people unacquainted with the range is believed to amount to some similar act of cussc-dness as a cow kicking over the milk bucket or a bull jump ing over the garden fence and eating the cabbages. A tlauipede however, is an enliiely different thing, Imag ine 700 steers in a wild race away from some object which they imagine is after them, each on 2 trying to outrun the one ahead of him ; tbe air trem bling with the noise of tneir hoo's; trampling each other under foot and carrying everything before them. After the band, in the present in stance, had passed the level country they made for the mountains with seven xwboys after them, trying to control them and allay their fear. All night long Ihey rode through limt.li and rocks to brad them off from getting back to their old range. When daylight came the horses and men presented a sorry looking eight. The clothes were, nearly lorn off from the men and the horses bleeding and crip pled from contact with brush and rock in the darkness, and 237 head of cat tle to b? en out of nearly 3000 bead was a discouraging outlook. Word was brought to Tombstone and fresh men and horses went to tbe rescue and the work of rounding them still goes on. But one steer was killed ; he fell and was trampled to death by those which followed. When they broke they made directly for the camp where the wagon and supplies and bedding were located. It seemed as though there would be nothing left of it or the oc cupant of the wagon', who was asleep; the latter, however, heard the noise and being no tenderfoot he grasped the situation and a blanket at the same lime and standing up he waved the.lalter in the face of the oncoming avalanche. The effect was marvellous; the terror-stricken animals parted, went around the camp and came to geiher on the other side. The cattle belonged to Dick Clark, the Snake ranch, Fred Herrera and others. It ia expected that by tc mor row they will be again on the way to Wilcox. Z"Z looks very p cb .ble that the republicans will have a majority in tho constitutional convention.

It means, no state, not be cause the party are opposed' to Elate tiood, for they are not, but for the reason that a republican state can never pisa through the 150 democrat ic majority in the house.

I bad a long chat with Secretary of the Navy, Tracy, and he spoke of the imperative necessity of a canal. Be said to me that in war alone it would be of incalculable value "In such a state of affairs as exists at present between the United Slntes and Chili" said tbe secretary to me, "I could send a squadron into the Pacific inside of fortyeight hours. That is now inp03ible and I must virtually sustain two navies."

The Republican ticket is running w l! with thcexception of House, democrat, who runs ahead of his ticket. Ilenej-'B Nprech. Frank Heney's speech, a published in the Republican is a masterpiece of truthful accusation. In going through Barnes' record he bared to the public gaze his political record in Arizona, while on the bench, and barked hi? assertions by proof taken from tbe records. lie showed how he had robbed the counties of Cochise, Pima, and Graham; hw ho had sal'l the pockets of bis relatives whom he pla ced in office ; accuses him of owning an interest in the San Rafael grant while on the bench, or rather that John Martin, his son-in-law, acquired possession of it just prior to a decision which tho Judgo made in favor of the Camerons. He dwelt upon his record while the trial of the Wham robbers was in progress and read the telegram sent. by the grand jury to the president asking for his removal. lie accuses him of having "been seen" by "Little Sieve" when the lalter's son was indicted for cattle stealing and Barnes compelled the U. S. attorney to dis miss lh" suit.He accusedbim of being responsible for the holding of the legiscature ("the kid 15th") beyond the CO day limit. It was the arraignment of a danger ous man before the bar of public opin ion and to Frank Heney, the honest men of both parties those who are not partirans for revenue only owe a debt of gratitude for unmasking a self constituted leader of his party, even though he sacrificed his own po litical ambition by so doing.
