The townsite question, which of late
has been peacefully slumbering in the
minds of the people, wis ycstctday ic
vived in rather ti sensational manner. The
Epitaph, some days ago, recoided the
tact that J. S. Claik was building a foun
dation wall for a l.uge business block i.t
the corner of Fifth and Ficmont sticcts.
Now Judge James lit illy, ti well-known
citizen, has claimed and occupied for the
past two year, more oi less, a t crtain p r
lion of the ground on which Mr. Claik
purposed electing his ron'cm,il ited build
ing. Attliegieat flreol" last May, Judge
lieilly was among tne unlortun tie ones,
an 1 his house, a fianic strut turc, was
among the victims of the insatiate f. f.
As soon as tho smoldering embers had
cooled oir, however, in older to rttiin pos
session of the giound, the judge elected
a tent, which has since occupied the site
of the building dr&tmycJ. Knowing
these facts, and know ing a!o that Judge
Iieiily was a man who jealously guarded
wiuit he suppo-cd to be his tights, and
.who quickly and vigoiously resented what
he deemed any inliingciiunt therein, the
operations ot Mr. Clark have been
by the le.-idcuts of the neighboihood.
Tne jiiilje, however, was biding his tune,
and for several days Mr. Claik pi act-fully
piusucd his woik, until a substantial stone
wall some five fttt in bight was erected on
the Fremont street front of the disputed
ground. But yesteiduy morning the judge
concluded tho wall was high enough to
suit his plans, and at coidingly, armed with
a double.b.uieled shotgun and a biaceof
45-calibcrs, he prucceucd to lesunic pos
session. This lie tlid without ics.Ut.mce,
and a lorce of men, undtr his orders, weie
soon put to work ctnting an opining for a
door through the w.illtreeted by the Claik
p illy. A huge quantity of rock d posited
on the giound by ilio same party was ut 1
ized in lading the touiidation fur a sm ill
building which was immediately com
minced. Dining the diy Mr Clark cime
along, and the Itvelie-t kind ol" an inter

was the result, and no d irker hue was
added to our alieady " blood. bc.-pattercd
stitciH." The affair ctealtd a good deal ol
excitement timing the day, at onetime the
repnrt being curicut that Clark was about
to make a sortie anil endtavorto recapture
the works; but happily the intention, if
any such existed, was abandoned. If ihe
attempt had been made some very warm
work would undoubtedly have resulted,

Mr. Lclmd lias t-stiblidied anindustii.il

monstiated the "fiasibiliiy of making in

by Leland is substantially the same as pro.

others, and consists of modeling, painting,
woiking in bia-s and vviutil leather,
carving, drawing, and art needle work.
The fundamental idea is to familiarize
childien vvitu baud work in their school
days, and thus tike away the idea that
work is degrading and disgratcrul. The
work is artistic at tint, I clause ait is easy,
but gradually develops into the practical

Ctuii-erniiic ine Itcbclll.ina Ited.
SptrclM CorrespsaJsact. or tbe Epttspb.
HbiiMostLLO, Oct. ia. A fteiiuj; of un.
certainty prevails in the state of Sonora.
The hentofoio peaceful tribes of Indians,
the Yaquis and M.iyos, are on the eve of
a revolt. Considering their number, some
12000, more or less-, the situation is indeed
deplorable. These Indi ins are the "Done
and sinew" of tbe country, and in case
of an outbreak all kind ol industries will
abruptly nd. Farming, mining, etc., will
receive a lei nblc set backfor want of la
bor. The chief of the Yaquis, Cajeme, has
been contemplating the advisability of an
outbreak for a year or more. He says the
Mexican government lias made icpcated
attempts to wrest tlie! mils of the Yaqui
and Mayo fiom him and his tribes, and
that he ho'ds deeds in trust for the tribes,
dating back under the Spanish rule, for nil
the lauds of that section, and thac he in
lintls to hold them against any aimed
force the government may place in the
field. The
areiu :idvil!dagtate -nmpar!ng favor
ably with Mexicans, luring their schools,
churches antl armed foices, consisting of
infantry, cavalry and artillery. They arc
liartl-working and industrious, and show
a good deal of mcch mic.d ability. In
case they break out, it is more than prob
able tiny will deleat the Mexicans and
capture the laigest towns und hold pos
session of them as long a they desire,
as they arc brave and understind the
modem tactics ot war and have a mil
itary commander (Cajame) that is a vet
cian of the Intern ntion and several
smill i- volutions. If the Mexican fotc ,
now in Sonora, some 4000 men, m ike an
advance nit Ihe Y qui country, they will
be surtly defeated on every turn, for the
river bottom of the Yaqui h one impreg
nable mass of rancbrnkc, and the trails ate
only known to the Indians, who would
ambush them as lhey attempted U cut
a path in. At tlie present time, the Mex
icms ate font collating their torces at
Heimosiilo, and are calling in all arms
tinit wcie issued to volunteerR during the
Apache lauN, and it is likely they will
advance tovvatd the Yaqui country be
foie the Indians are peiniitled to rise.

From J. I). Henderson we learn that
matters in Sonora are improving. The
Indians, since the raid on Curapas two
weeks ago, have not been seen, and the
people are going to work in the various
mines now being worked by tlie Ameri
cans. Tlie woik on the SmPtdiois be
ing puslud with energy by Superintendent
Jackson, while the Tobrccuchi, the first
mine in Sonora opened below the woik of
the ancients, is uelding $1,700 ore, and
bids fair to show- a bonanza in a short
time. This mine is owned by Messrs.
Adams, Bitkerton brothers and Lewis
Ashman, ot the Cochiu Co. Bank. The
gnat San u Anni and Iio-mio, ot the Co.i
Cutler ami Bostwick group, will soon be
worked with a full force. .Mines are con
stantly being dlscoveied in ihe Mocte-zuina
distritt. On the Sonora river cheering
news comes from the Santa Maria", Los
Deliciap, and the great new find, Mocic
zuiiia. In f.ici, with a little quiet and
American capitii, Soconi will soon again
be herself.

sidered by the counsel that a jury of six
.-iti7ens would be sufficient to tty the case,
mil accordingly the following named gen.
demen were selected to actus such: John
Doling, J. J. P.tt'on, J. Montgomery, T.
W. Aylc-s, A. M. Cohen and L. Jacobs.
The opening statement of the plaintiff
was m.tdc by J. II. Lewis, and was re-J
i-p-nded to on behalf of the defendant by
J.H.Lucas. The first witness called to
the stand was Mike Gray, who testified to
Reillv having erected a lioiic on the dis
puted ground, on or ab"Ut Sppember, 1,
1880, and to his having been in possession
up to the file in May of this year, after
which time tliCDropcityhad been occupied

for the building of a wal', but understood
that M. E. Claik was the employer.
E. Snoderass testified to having laid the
foundation on the lot in question, in ihe
spring ol IBS'), at the instance of Mike
Gray, who, at that time represented the
townsite company.

in fact for M. E. Clark.
B. McGinness la inir ca'Ied stated that he
was familiar with the lot in dispute and
that he saw Judge li illey and others tear
ing down the wall elected in front of the

Judge lieilly on the ground, and also savv
the defendant 1 -ading a shotgun. Was
picsent during the controversy between
Mr. Clark and Judire Itciily and heaid
thicals made during the argument. The
alti rcalion occurred before witness fcivv
the gun in lieilly 's hand, and aficr Cl.uk
had need some sei eie language to the de
fendant; witness thought there was
going to be a shin tins scrape and
stepped to one sulc. Witness advised
Claik to remain away from the lot as lie
was liable to get hurt.
Judge Reillv was then placed on the
stand and testified to having occupied lot
9, block tS, frtinitfjrpicmbfr, 18S0, upto Ihe
fireof MayS.1), 1S82. and that no one bkd
ever occupittl the lot without his permis
sion; that when he saw the workmen en
gaged in building the wall he lequested
tlicin to desist, and plainly stated that they
were infringing on his property; that on
Sunday morning he, in company with a
friend, pi oceeded t the lot in question,
lor the purpose of removing such poition
of the wall as was necessary to allow him
ingress and egress from his lot to Fremont
street; that while there several pets mo,
among whom was J. S. Clark, approached
him antl Clark asked him what business

The witness also stated that soon after the
fire, he put up a tent on the lot which h is
remained there up to the present tunc.

judges ot what constituted the occupancy
of ihe disputed ground, and sj instructed
the jury. On cross-' xamination. witness

gi'en to the jury, vim icdred for delibcia
tion at about 5.30 o'clock, bhonly after
six it was announced that the juiy had
."greed, and couiuel for the plaintilf und
defendant being sunimuied, the verdict
was real by the court. The verdict
found that the defi ndant was "guiby as
charged." The elfcet of Ihc verdict is
that Clark is entitled to a writ of le-lhu-lion
against Reilly. By the statute, tle-ft-ndent
is allowed five dais to file a no
tice of appeal, snd if spptal is uken a
further stay ol proceedings until the ap
