Among the enactments by the ter ritorial board of equalization was the adoption of a territorial tax levy of 71 cents per $100, of which amount 25 cents goes to the general fund. Sheep were rated at $2 and hoc at $3 per head; Cochise county cattle at $7.90, and horses at $20 50 per head. Bats the Phuenix Herald "Word conies from Yuma that all is not love, ly in the prison othcial family. It is claimed that the superintendent is entirely too economical for the higher officials and us a result there is noth ing to whick up." As a just t ibu e to the merit of our camp, and criticism on inaction, the following from the Arizona Republi can is well worthy of cireful perusal. Speaking editorially, the Republican says 'The great richntts of the Tomb atone mines on the surface, while a gret advantage t the start eventual ly proved disamuus, as things had gone on so prosperous and so esy, the owners of the mines were literally parah zed when u real trouble con fronted them. When the lower work ings reached water and its extent was found to be considerable. Tombstone simply threw up its hands ai'd capitu lated. There never has been ano.her case where such marvellously rich mines hae been practically abandon ed as has been the case in Tombstone. It has always been a matter of sur prise that mines which have paid mil lions of dollars should be allowed to remain idle. A co-operative associa tion could certainly accomplish the reduction of water, and alter the water vraa once pumped under control, the expense of holding it .there would I e comparatively small. But whatever is done, ehould be mutually borne, and not saddled on the few, ax was done at the first attempt to control the wate.. It is to that selfish act tli4t Tombstone mines owe their p res ent inactivity. "It has lieen a matter ol surprise that large combination of capital has not long since secured control of the whole camp, and handled the magnifi cent mining properties known io be there, as one great enterprise. Such an undertaking would come nearer duplicating the results of the Corn stock ttiao anywhere in the United Slates. "Iet us suppose, for instance, that a strong financial syndicate of California mining men secure tha control of ten of the largest mine of Tombstone, and organized them into one great com pin" on the asscssab.e plan, does any one doubt for a moment but that de velopment would le purhrd to a depth of at least of 200U feet? The total out- ptiv would be something enormou. and the water would be easily con trolled. "All a first class live California would want, would be the guarantee of profitable ore below the water and this is an established fact in Tomb stone. The stockholdtrs would go on paying assessment for years, in order to open up the vast chambers of un told wealth that lie below the Con tention, Orand Central and other equally great mines. It would seem that no effort had been made to work there promising mines after the tfret serious trouble wa encountered. It muy truly be teuaeJ caws without parallel."

That the output of Tombstone above the water level took the lead of any Arizona camp. That ou the 000-foot levol of the Grand Central tho ledge was bctturde fined tharrabovo that point. That 40 odd feet below the water a winze on the southern end of tho claim was iu fine Cnrbutifcte Ore when the pumjw collapsed. That tho ore body uncovered on the 500 foot level of the Sulphuret where water interfered was fully 50 feet wide with smooth and well defined walls sloping outward. That the Contention below water level revealed iu its threo ledges a combined width of 43 feet of ore that would be pay rock for reduction at the mine, and that from a winze ou one of the lodges a drift ran in ore CO feet. Abo that specimens were taken from below water 1 vei in this property which went upwards of $1(, 000 a ton in gold and sliver. That the general development of the eastern part of the district demon strates conclusively that an immense ore body exists below water between the surfaco cropping of the Grand Central-Contention belt ou the east, and the West Side-Lucky Cus belt on the west and north, the only prob lem being the valuation of the ore below the water level. That work on Fifth and Bruce streets show bedrock at 51 feet; 1000 feet further north, bedrock does not show in the Christmas shaft at 1C0, and 1100 feet still further north a 300 foot shaft on the Cortes was still in cement, showing the rapid dip of the formation between the apex of the first hills south of the city aud Walnut gulch where the immense wash from the mountains has doubtless covered the bedrock several hundred feet deep, and thai as there is no reasonable theory on which to base a change of formntion between tho developed ground south o! Allen street and the undeveloped ground to the north there is every reason to believe that the underlying limestone is seamed with the sums rich ore that was ex tracted to the south.
