The Sunday Gnzs-tte container) the
following: Tho Cabinet soerotly con
sidered the propriety of tho request
made by tho Chinese Minister to
allorr the passage through this coun
try, en route to China, of 00,000
coolies from Cuba. It was affirmed
that great hardship and expense
would accrue to them if they wero
not allowed to take this route. Tho
Kxeoutivo very properly denied tho
request. The Chineso dealers in
libor are endeavoring to circumvent
tho law. If the Cuban coolies should
bo allowed to pass through tho Unit
ed States, by far tho larger propor
tion of them Svould remain.
Tho opinion is brewing quite gen
erally among tho legal fraternity that
the nine Star route cases will not bo
given to tho jury, but they will bo
thrown out of court by Judge Wylio
and tho indictment dismissed. Tho
rulings of Wylie upon tho ovidenco
thus far presented justifies this con
clusion, and tho counsel for the Gov
ernment admit they havo taken their
strongest cases first, and if tho evi
dence now being submitted is not
strong enough to convict, the other
cases will fail.

Twenty Feet or Snovr and Ktcrnnl
Italn niul t'oR A 1'ooe Country fur
n l'oor aian.
.Mr. J. W. roles, who is well known
among mine workers in this district, ar
rived in the city Friday evening, almost
direct horn Alaska. AnEriTArii reporter
had a confab with him Saturday regard
ing tho people, resources and prospects of
Alaska, and was far from being prepossess,
cd with the story of the eye-witness. Mr.
Toles was in, a talking mood, ami hesitated
not to detail to the leporter an epitome of
Ida observations while visiting the land ot
snow. JIu left Bisbco on the 23d of April
last and reached Alaska on the 11th of
May. lie parted, as our friend Poston
would say, from the "land of the sun," to
make his' fortune among the eternal chills
ot tuc noun janii, and return in tuc sweet
byc-nnd-liy to. spend his old ago in the
genial, sultry clime of our own favored
Territory. But ho was badly fooled,
nis introduction to alaska
was far from being strewn with loses or
eveilastiug joy. True, lie admits that ho
had a pleasant voyage, but as luck would
have it, tho eveuing thut the gallant ship
slipped anchor at Harrlsburg thcio was
hell popping among tho natives. There
aie several sub-divisicms among the Alaska
Indians, but only two grand divisions.
These latter divisions consist of the coast
and interior tribes, who arc eternally at
war. Tho coast men, when they have not an
interior enemy to kill, will pass away tunc
by killing themselves and the Interiors
adopt the same course of procedure. The
tribe that have a camping ground in the
immediate vicinity of Harnsburg are called
Yocks and they aie at deadly enmity with
a sect from tlio interior called the Farkoos.
On the night Mr. Toles first set his foot on
our dear northern acquisitions, it chanced
that a party of the Farkoos had reached
Ilarrisburg as guides to a number of white
men who had been prospecting in tho in
tenor. Some years before tills a detach
ment of Yocks had ventured inland on a
hunting expedition and became engaged
in a brawl with their hereditary foes.
Several of the coast tribe
And vengeance was thicatcued.
On the identical evening
ef the 11th ot May, when Mr. Toles lauded
at Ilarrisburg, the Yockes had decided to
pay heir debt of vengeance. There were
not moro tlun six of tho interior tribe,
and nearly half of them were women.
The Yockes notified them that four of their
tribo was killed some years bcloro, and
that a like number of the visiting Indians
should be turned over fot sacrifice. The
rural members objected, and a flghtcom
menced. The Farbooks ran to the whiles
for protection, and tho latter were in honor
bound to defend them, having induced the
Indians to leave, their homes to guide
them in safety to the coast. A squaw be
longing to the visiting tribe had already
been captured, and was doomed to suffer
lor the sins of her tribe.
About half of the white population
armed themselves to defend the woman,
several shots were fired, three Indians
killed and several wounded, the squaw was
rescued, rnd just at that moment .Mr. Toles
anlvcd upon the scene. This occurred at
tiik town ot' iiAitwsncRO,
tho most northerly white settlement in the
Territor; . There arc about 250 while men
living in tho town, and not less than 100
Indians. Ilarrisburg is at present the
capital of Alaska, being not more than
three miles lrom Douglass Island, the lo
cation of the onlyquarlz mill in the territory.
Douglass Island is a niounianeous dot in
the gulf, not more than fifteen miles long
by live wide. A good ledge of mineral
was discovered theio some two years ago
that was of such promising quality as to
induce capitalists to send up a five-stamp
mill to crush the ore. The "Basin," the
location of tlio placer diggings, is. about
five miles from Ilarrisburg, in the inland.
Some very promising claims aie located
theie, but none of extraordinary richness.
Last year the men worked fouitecn hours
daily and succeeded in cleaning up about
sixteen dollars a day to the man. These
arc about tho only claims at present being
worked in the territory. The white men,
whom glowing accounts of tho mineral
wealth of the Territory attracted there, aie
about as
DESoi.vrn a citowu
as could well be scared up. Tlictc arc
about 500 while men, all told, living in
Alaska, and only about thirty-flvo have
steady employment. These are employed
at the mino et Douglass Island and receive
three dollars a day and board. The In
dians become good workmen after a little
practice, and they can be had for $1.50 per
day, so it maybe imagined that few white
men are in demand. Mr. Toles assorts
that Alaska is not a poor man's coun
tiy. J'r-.spectiug must be done In canoes,
as the countiy is unexplored and totally
devoid of roads. The ground is covered
with tangled brush, nud soft adhering
moss that grows a foot hhji. When the
objective point on a river is leaclied, na
tives tuc secured to pack the necessary
luggage to tho scene of operations. It is
.most unhealthy climate
In the world, there being continuous rains
and fog all the time. At present there is
no snow on the coast, but about live miles
inland Ibe snow is from ten to twenty feet
deep. The four towns of Wrangel, Sitka,
llochcuoe and Ilairisburg, are on the
coast, within a radius of fifty miles of each
each other. All the white men in tho ter
ritory leslde in these settlements, except
the few who may be out prospecting when
the snow clears oir tho ground.
Living is tolerably cheap in the Torri
toiy, Hour being worth from two dollars to
two dollars and a quarter a sack. Potatoes
are sold for three and a half cents a pound
and everything else in proportion. Most
of the houses are made of logs, though
there are a lew made of lumber. The na
tives subsist almost entirely on
tlslt and oil, the -litter being ab
stracted from the porpoKo and
other inhabitants of the dcen. The oil
the natives drink with thesame lelish that
civilized people get away with whisky. It
must not be supposed from this that the
natives could not drink whisky if they got
a chance. Oh! no! they wouldn't; they
would simply give their cyc3 for ii. As it
is, they manufactuio an infamous com
pound called "Hochr.noe," that has the ef
fect of gelling them blazing drunk, and
whilo in that condition things nrc decided
ly lively. There is very little amusement
for wluie men at Alaska. Adanco house
bus been rigged up at Ilarrisburg, and
three nights a week the fiee and indepen
dent children of Uncle Sam will waltz
with the dusky beauties of the Territory
until broad daylight. Mr. Toles says there
is no sueli tiling as virtue among the
Kvery white man in the island possesses a
harem ot four oi five women. To be the
mistress of a white man is the highest am
bition of an Indian woman in that happy
land. They aro a good looking race of
people, being of a light copper color, very
lithe and graceful in appearance, with very
legular fcatuics. On "steamer day," when
the boat from Sau Francisco arrives the
women assemble on the wharf and trv to
corral a brevet husb.uid befoio ho has yet
soiled his boots with Alaska mud. Five
hundred miles north of Ilarrisburg the
Yukon river Hows into llio ocean. This
stream is navigable for 1,500 miles, and at
its source some of the finest placer diggings
on the continct are supposed to exist. This
is the objectivo point of the Schieftelin
expedition, which nearly every person in
Alaska predicts will be a failure, so far as
any definite and lasting results are con
cerned. There is no law in Alaska, the com
mander of a sloop-of-war, sailing along the
coast, being (lie actual despot of the Terri
tory. Strange as it may seem, the people
are verv quiet and peaceable and are In no
way anxious for an established form ot
government. When there is a killing or
nny other grevious crime committed the
culprit is secured, the sloop of war signal
ed, mid he is turned over to the comman
der, who sends him to Portland, Oregon,
where ho is tried. Mr. Toles is decidedly
of the opinion that Alaska is a poor place
for a poor man lo go to seek his fortune.
There is absolutely no resource and the
men there at present are aching for a
chance to go home, but they are all broke,
and gradually getting down to the level ot
the natives. It is undoubtedly a fine place
to keep away from, and tho?o who leave
Arizona to seek their fortunes there will
find themselves "left in a cold day."
Meeting of tho Tombstone Itc -llenii
Hull-Grand Matlicrincr of Sixteen
noshes City vprflUH Country.
The Tombstone Republican Club met last
Satuiday in the Court House, President
Can- in the chair. The l estimations of
Secretary Kelly and Assistant Secretary E.
M. Carr were accepted, and B. C. Qulglcy
and C. I). Rcppy were elected to take their
places, respectively. A discussion ensued
as to club accommodations in the way of
quarters, which ended In desultory conver
sation. During the discussion tho EriTAni
repottcr passed the time in counting those
present, and found there were just twenty
seven, including spectators. The roll cfdl
had beeu dispensed with, owing to the fact
probably that a quorum of the club was
not present. Quigley tlieg read the
minutes to President Carr (both Ihcse
gentlemen, by-the-by, holding the same
relative positions in the City Coun
cil), when Judge Dioblo excitedly
called attention to the fact that his
name was left out of the fifteen that con
stitute the Tombstone proportion and tho
majority of the Republican County Cen
tral Committee. This mistake being recti
fied, the leport .of the Finance Committee
was called for. The only report rendered
was from one of the members, who stated
that he had only just discovered that ho
belonged to that committee. The execu
tive committee concluded not to report
until next meeting. When tho unfinished
business was announced by tho chair,
the true inwardness ot the night's work
developed itself. A proposition was made
that the club proceed to tho election of a
member of the County Central Committee,
to fill the vacancy caused by the emigration
of Banning to Alaska. Assistant District
Attorney Williams sprang to his feet, and
earnestly denounced tho right of a club to
usurp tho functions of a central committee.
Ho asserted that the club could recom
mend but not elect; that the committee
should fill its vacancies itself. He then
moved that John It. Farrcl bo recommend
cd by the club as its choice for the vacant
place. Dibble argued that the city should
select its own representatives, and not
tiust to a committee composed jointly ot
city and country members.
The anxiety of Dibble and his follow
ers evidently aiesc from a desire to keep
the majority of the committee in the city.
Nash agreed with Williams, and tlio latter
clinched his. remarks.
Cuddy suggested that the club could
take no notice of vacancies in the central
committee, as that body alono can deter
mine officially whether or no vacancies
exist. Resignation, if any, can only be
received by the committee. President
Carr then suggested that beforo the matter
came to a vole, those in the hall who desired
to become members had better sign the
roll. Four men came forward and signed.
A viva voce vote was then had, which re
sulted iii division being called for, dis
closing nine votes for and seven against
tho motion of Williams, which was de
clared carried. This vote disclosed the
strength of the club attendance sixteen,
including the four new members.
Dibble then moved that the executive
committee secure a room for club meet
ings. Carried.
A motion was then made lo adjourn, but
the chair was being so earnestly "chinned"
by Dibble that it lost its head until awak
ened by the angry inquiry of a member,
whether there was any business for the
club. Tho announcement was then made
Ihat the meeting stood adjourned, with u
request that those members of the Central
Committee present, remain for the trans
action of business. Nothing was done,
however, except that Clark Churchill, the
chairman of the Republican Territorial
Ceulral Committee, was vigorously cursed
for his appointment of representation to
the Territorial Convention.

The following is a cony of the report of
uiu suo-commiuee oi me uranu .) ury, con
stituting the missing link iu the general
Tomiistonk, Arizona, May 24, 1832.
To Larkin W. Cirr, Foreman of the Grand
Jury of Cochise County, now in session:
Tho undersigned committee, appointed
by you to examine the County Recorder's
and Clerk's offices, wish lo submit the fol
lowing leport:
Wo found tho records of the county kept
in a neat and satisfactory manner, and the
charges, as far as we could asccitain, were
icasonable and not above that allowed by
statute. The bond of the County Recorder
wo consider good, beiug Cook, Vizina,
Trlbolel'aud P. W. Smith. The building
is as well guarded against fire as any that
could have been selected.
We also examined the books of the Clerk
of the Court, and lound things in a verv
unsatisfactory condition, it appealing to us
that he was not only charging extortinatc
prices, but demanding that persons make
a deposit of money for labor unperformed,
and also neglecting lo file and keep iu
place, papers in criminal actions sent up
from Justices' courts. We. therefore, re
commend that the present grand jury, as
soon as practicable," send for the books iu
the Clerk of the Court's hands, and give
them a thorough investigation. We also
find that the bond of (he Clerk is entirely
worthless, it having been given by Lord
arid Williams who havo become insolvent.
We recommend that the Supervisors be ie
quested lo sec that a good bond is given.
Alex. Wight, Chairman.
15. Block.
Thus, time makes all things even. The
grand jury report is now published iu full,
and those who weio so eager to see it can
satiate their curiosity. Wo procured the
copy from Mr. Wight, chairman of sub
committee, and he in'cirms us that he did
not act from a spirit of hate, or spile, but
solely for tho puulic good. He wa under
oath to perforin certain duties and hl be
did conclentiously.
Oood Nport and l'lenty of Fun.
The races at Doling's driving park last
Monday afternoon were not as well attended
as they should be. However, there was a
very respectable gathering, with unlimited
enthusiasm, and an overflow of fun. The
race track is about a mile and a quarter
from the heart of the city, on the old Con
tention road. The track is a very good
one, the arrangements perfect, and it is
astonishing why the grand sport of horse
racing is not moro generally indulged in.
The track was laid out about a couple of
years ago by Doling. A nice saloon build
ing and office has been erected on the
grounds, and a stable, perfect in its ar
rangements, has also been built. This
lalter building contains nine comfortable
stalls, and is a model of neatness. Tho
liar is well supplied with liquors and
cigars, and the track is kept in perfect re
pair. The great rice yesterday was between
J. O. Dunbar's Comanche Joe and F. BJ
Boatman's Prince. This contest has been
the subject of more than ordinary interest
for the past week, and warm partisans of
both horses were on tho ground yesterday.
Keno Ike sold pools on the race, and most
of the spectators present took a shy at the
goddess of chance. Comanche Joe was
the favorite at the pool table, thouss'u Prince
nad quite a number ot uaciccrs. I'rouiptly
at three o'clock the horses were drawn up
in frcnt of the judges' stand. Comanche
Joe was ridden by W. I. Perry, and was
not in good condition in consequence of a
severe sickness he underwent the dap pre
vious. J. II. Behan and Bob Turner were
chosen Judges, and A. T. Jones was ap
pointed referee. The horses started off in
tine style, but cro a bundled yards were
passed over, it was easily to be seen that
Joe would bo the winner. Tho horses
were boih handled well, and Comancbc
passed tho judges' stand some thirty feet
ahead of his competitor. Time of race
fifty-two seconds. The amount of money
that changed bauds on the event was away
up in the hundreds and tho lucky ones
weie loud in praise of tho winning horse,
while the disappointed ones were equally
displeased with the performance of Prince.
The next race wasascrubgathciing.and
four horses were entered. Mr. Dunbar's
black was the lucky winner, and Perry
tlio successful rider of the "star" contest
also carried off tins prize. Henry Fry,
the owner of one of the "racers," was not
satisfied, and another challenge went forth.
This timo a mile heat was run, the two
others being half mile dashes. Perry was
again the winner, though the "sorrel"
proved himself game, and John Lang, the
rider, performed his part lo perfection.
Considerable money changed hands on the
last contest, the spectators being about
equally divided on the mcritsof the horses.
The best of good feeling prevailed, and
everybody left satisfied with the day's
sport. A number of ladies graced the
occasion with their presence, and took a
lively interest in the res ill of the different
Doling has offered a purse of sixty-five
dollars, free to all saddle horses, to-day,
and those who fail to attend will miss the
groat event of the season.

Attention is again called to the criminal
carelessness displayed in leaving shafts
unpioleeled. Near the Menimac mine on
the Charleston road, a shaft fifteen feet
deep is in :m unprotected condition near
the public higl way. A few evenings ago

This impoitant work has just been com
pleted in Cochise county by Census Mar
shal Breakcnridge, who was chosen to per
form that important work by the Board of
Supervisors. The work has been carefully
and conscientiously done, and the result
is very flattering to this county. A care
ful examination gives Cochise a popula
tion of 9,047. Considering that tho coun
ty is only about aycar auda half old, and
that wc have had many set-backs, this must
be considered a very good population.
Tombstone has within her limits 5,300
people. Twcnty.four different nationali-
ties combine to create this population, and
nearly every quarter of the globe isre

soil count more than all the forciJLiLJ

not be boasted of. The Irish co' ie mxt.

while tho subjects of Her Majesty In the

readers the complete and correct census ot
the city. The following comprises our
population :

It will bo seen from tho above table that
English speaking people are largely in the
majority. Out of our entire population
there are but 1,240 people whose mother
tongue is not English. Of the Mexicans,
perhaps a large number may be natives of
the Territory though claiming Mexico as
tho land of their nativity. As can be seen
China looms up pretty well, far away Hin

Islands have not iorgottcn us, and the
West Indies help to swell our numbers.
. In glancing over tho census books, it
was learned that Americans affiliate with
the Irish more than with any other for

The Republican County Committee met
at the Court House Monday afternoon at
2 o'clock, Mayor Carr, Chairman of the
County Committee, presiding, and a fair
scattering of the members were present. On
motion of Judge Dibble, J. R. Farrcll was
elected a member of the committee to fill
the vacancy caused by the resignation of
Mr. Banning, who departed for Alaska re
cently. Dibble kept the reins well in
hand and steered the boys just as he
pleased. On motion, a committee was
appointed to prepare ail address to the
voters of Cochise county. J. O. Dun
bar. A. J. Bitter aud Horace Jones were
appointed such.conimiftee.
The Chairman of tha Republicau Terri
torial Committee was handled without
gloves for the masterly manner in which
lie succeeded in cheating the Cochise
county Republicans out of their proper
representation iu tho Territorial Conven
tion. On motion of Mr. Farrel, a com
mittee composed of Messrs. Farrel, Dibble,
Jones, Stewart and Bradly was appointed
to draw up a protest to the Territorial
Committee against the act of the chairman
in denying Cochise county representation
in the convention. The meeting then took
a recess until seven o'clock in the evening.
At the evening session a good-sized row
wuis for a while on the tapis. Clark
Churchill, tho chairman of tho Territorial
Committee, appointed Judge Dibble a
member of the Territorial Commilleo from
Cochise county without consulting the
wishes of the brethren iu this particular
locality. The solecticn did not suit the
little " bubs," and a grand kick was about
to be made by the young and foolish
membeis of the committee. Much
whispering and caucusing was carried on
and an effort made to secure united action
in senJing a suub to Churchill. Editor
Dunbar, however, managed to turn his
blarney loose on the members and the "big
gun" was allowed to go unspiked. August
12th was the day set for holding the pri
maries, and delegates to the county nomi-
nating convention, and the convention for
choosing delegates to tlo Territorial Con
vention will be held at the same time. It
is generally supposed, that this is a Dibble
move to have both classes of delegates ap
pointed at the same time, as it will save
him the trouble of selecting delegates on
two different occasions. A committee of
one was appointed from each ward in
Tombstone, and precinct in the county, on
registration, the duty of tho committeeman
being to sec that each voter In his baile
wicli was properly registered. The
following apportionment of mem
bers of the Couuty Committee was
made: Tombstone, three from the wards
and three at large; Benson, four; Charles
ton and Bisbce, three each; Huachuca,
two, Rnd the smaller towns of the county
two each.
Judge Dibble, as usual, furnished a
great proportion of tho chin music, and
though the boys seriously contemplate
revolt at times, still he manages to keep
them well in hand. Editor Dunbar, as
peacemaker, is a success, and his position
as oil-pourer on the troubled weters Is now-assured.

In his lively scoring of the Com

had found out every other rivulet in

overlooked the lovely and placid
Skoodoowobskook, a stream said to
murmur somewhere in the woods of
Maine, and to bo quite as worthy of
the attention of the engineers of the
United States as any other of the
rills that are to go rejoicing to the
sea with the overilow of the treasury.

could, some sweet poetry regarding

A short distance from Buena Vista,
Cal., is a cave inhabited by spiders of
enormous size. The cave was dis
covered last December by a party of
sight-seekers. The spiders are about
the size of small birds, and make a
strange sound while weaving their
web. Tho webs aro so tough and
the fibres so largo that it is impos
sible to break them. We believe
this lie is fresh this year. Boston
