The Pedro Consolidated Mining Com pany, winch owns the Big iind Little Pc- Uros, Idaho, Iranian?, Mi.ttie Hickey, and Accident, recently incoporated in San Francisco, with .1 full paid up stock cnpi. lid, is nipidly developing its properties under the supi-rintenikncy ol Mr. C. G. Uillckc-. On the Big and Utile Pedios there are ten out-cropping veln3 running north and south and cast and west, all of which run into Iho oilier members of this gioup of mines. These oie veins have been recently prospected by shafts varying in depth Irom thiec tofilty-flvu feet at va. rlous points along each ein, showing that they run '.ho wholo length and width of these claims in aeiago veins of ti two and a half feet wide, and with an assay value, on average ore, of $143 per ton Tii ledge of the Urec-n Cloud mine, which has proven a very rich one, has been pios pected ncnij,lhe Honey Comb and the Big Pedro, showing lliia large ore vein con. tributes to the value of this group. There have been many KICH SrEClMKNS OK OllE tiken out, assaying as high a3 $0,000 per ton, and it is confidently believed that the ore from this mine will mill upwards oT $120 per ton. There is a force of men at woik upon the suifacc. in two shafts, tak. ing out good ore, and in s if.klng the ore u the various dumps which is to be trans ported to the Boston mill near Charles-ton, the milling of which will soon detcimine the richness . .. "-'ges. It might be a surprise to many o'i our citizens to learn that Mr. Geo. Rutledge has been for some time at work, witli a NIOI1T AM) DAY SHUT, upon a contract with tins company on a tunnel commencing near the east end of the Big Pedro, which will, in all probabil. ity, Le run mtiiely through Military Hill, on this piopeity, and which will tap all the north aud south ore bodiis. varying in thickness, at this depth, from four fett t ten feet. Tm- mmo K situate about two miles south from the i ity of Tombstone, and a good road has been completed to the mnuth of the tunnel. The owners of lin stock in this company think they have a mine second to none in this cunp, and us there is no stock in it for sale, their affairs have been kept very quiet. The work of this company will give a now impetus to the mining industry of the immediate vi cinity, which will be of great benefit to this district. Mr. John Landers, of San Francisco, is president of the company. OLD NIPONG. lie ItevlcnH .th Democratic. Ticket In a Clinrao.terlMIc Milliner. Old Nipong is a good old fellow, a plain, open, generous-hearted, outspoken Mis. sourian. Us came in from the Harb-icom-nri yesterday, and stro'lbg Into the office sat down,stuck his rawhide boots upon the table, threw bis lop-bri mined hat over the spittoon, run his hands through Ii is hair until it looked like a mosquito bush struck by lightning, and said, "Wal, by gosh, here you air again, I'm-powerful glad to s-e you, and I kinder cakeil ited I'd fn 1 y u hereabouts." Wo signified our plc.tsuie at meellug so old, and t-stcenitd an acquain. tance, apd expressed a hope that his dem. ociacy was sound as of yore, and had not been t tinted by '"independenti-m." "Wul, I kinder guess not ; I'm a puity squar demerkrat iet. But did ye hear of any thing drappin' 'bout Ohio? Haw! haw! yap-ali but thet were a clean ker. tlop! But how air tricks round-cr-bout yer;" We assured him of our confidence In the election of thn entire democratic ticket. "Wul, I kinder ihink thet way myself. O'd Oury is one of the old boys, he is.

R. Rule, C lerk of Board. Aesnmeiit Woik. An exchange sajs that the value of re couling assessment work on mines is most fercibly felt when a sale is about to be made. If theowncr or his agent is abroad endeavoring to effect a sale,and the title of the property is questioned, reference is at once made to the countv iccords. If the woik aas been recorded, witli other neces saty documei.ts, it shows care on the pait of the owner. Official record of annual labor has saved many a m m's property, and neglect of this duty has lost many va. uable claims. There ate a bundled and one reasons why every owner of a claim fhould have his work recorded. Claim owners who are non-residents should be especially particular to have the work re corded, and no contract lor assessment work should be lit without a clause pio viding lor the affidavit and proof of record. County .Honey All Itislit. It was reported yesterday, in connection with Hie assignment ot P. W.Smith &Co., that J. O. Dunbar figured in the preferred liabilities as a creditor to the amount of something oer $23,C00. The opinion was freely expressed that this large sum reprc. sented county fund?, and some poorly in. foimed persons were fearful lest the county might bo temporal ily embarrassed pending the settlement of the affairs of the firm. An EriTArn reporter interviewed Mr Jacobs, the assignee, on the subject, and he isauthoiity for the statement that all moneys belonging to the county aro en. tirely unaffected by the assignment, arid can be drawn by the proper uuthoiitics wlieniver they disire. This statement should set at lest all doubts tln.t mar bare been entertained in regard to the mutter. REVOLUTION IN SONORA. Governor Ortiz 1:hciiich Vr ni Her luoriillo by special Turin. From a perfectly reliable party who came up fiom Benson on Tuesday's stage, we learned Mini Governor Ortiz, of Sonor.i, passed through that place yesteiday, en toute to Tucson. He statid that the trouble which lias lately existed between himself and General Reyes, culminated by an attempt on the paitof the latter to have him assissinated.. To escape with his life, lie was obliged to call upon the railroad company, which provided him with a special t-ain, through which me dium he soon gained safety upon American soil. At about 12 o'clock last night, the following dNputch was received concerning the above sta ement: Special OIpatch of the Kpltapli. Benson, Oct. 31. Governor Ortiz, of Sonora, came up on the train to-day. He was driven out of Hcrmosillo by General Rcyv.-, and birely escaped with his life on a special train furnished by the lailroid company. He was fired at several times, and his house punctured by many bullets. It is feared a coldsioo has oecuned be tween the troops of Gen. Ryes and Gov. Ortiz. Fiom what we have been able to learn regarding the trouble, it is more than prob able that Gen. Reyes hai been, or will be sustained by the government, and the de parture of Ortiz followed by peace and order. I.ATEP. Special to the EriTirii.l Tucson, Oct. 31. Governor Ortiz, of Sonora, lias just arrived with a bodyguard from Hcrmosillo. He is a refugee from the st tie. A correspondent called upon the governor, who staled that on Sunday he, with his cabinet and troops returned to Hermosillo from Guayinas, and disbanded the tronpa. Last night, at a late hour, Gen. Reyes' troops, under Mytulano, at tacked the house of Ortiz and commenced firing, killing four of his body guard. Ortiz' men ictuined the fire, killing five federals and wounding others. The rail, road officials, seeing the danger, tendered Ortiz and his body guard a special train to lieu for his lite. He crossed the line this morning, and ieiyes for the City of Me.ico to-morrow via New Orleans. He siys he will make an appeal to the central government for aid. Antonio Escalante, vice-governor, has assumed gubernatorial authority. This is what General Rcvcs demanded from ihe first. Ortiz is mucli dejected and worn out; some ( f his fiiends with him say lie will never retuin to Son ora. This ends the solution. CHARLESTON GOSSIP.

J. nolan addiessed the people here and was listened to with approbation, as his lecoid on the hndgiabbmg outrage is well known to our citizens. We, here, feel the effects of those 5Iexican land giant pirates, and are grateful to him for his past course and believe that be will, in the future, work for the best interests of the people. We have had a visitation, within the past few da s, from one ot that class ol insects that hac so cuised California.

The people will insist upon their repre sentatives, botli at Prescott and at Wash ington, doing all in their power to arrest the plans ol these vampires, and will unite to see that they aie lelegated to a business and course of lile suitable to their capacities and moral natutes. The valleys of the San I'cdto and the Babo comaii would to-day have a population of of a thousand thrilty, iudusttious agricul turalists, improving the country, building up schools and chinches and advancing civilization, but for the thieving crew who aie engaged in throning a cloud upon t'ie titles to the lands. It is an iniquity in which these men are engaged that should be "s.it down on" in the most sccie and pet manent manner. The litany might be amended to lead, "Fiom '.ocusts, Culm ado beetles and land grabbing insects good Lord deliver us." Ahc.onaut.

Alonzo Dais, which announce ment was not greeted wiihau outburst of if applause. 5Ir. Davis spoke foi about 'i. half hour, devoting most of the time to the hopeless task of tij ing to convince his hearers that Hon.Giainillc II. Oury was not the p oper man to represent Arizona in congie&s. Perhaps his efforts in this diicction might have met with better success if his au dience had not previously had an oppor tunity of seeing both Mr. Oury and his opponent, and drawing a comparison be tween the two men. The speaker casualty referred to the fact of his candidacy for superintendent of instiuction, tidmittins that lie knew nothing at all about the public school system, but then, lie said, he would have plenty of time to read up on the sub jict, which he promised to do in case ol his election. His speech was listened to attentively, and when it was finished the audience dispersed with a sigh of relief aud a well-grounded conviction that Mr. Davis, although doubtless a very entertain ing gcntlemtn, was not exactly fitted to teach the "young ideas" of Arizona. A Ills Itonmiza. W. Henry, superintendent of the New York Herald, was in town Monday and left.foi Stein's Pass and San Simon mining district by this morning stsge, ia Benson. Mr. Ileniy is here for his health and at the same time is carrying on extensive de velopments on bis Johnny Bull copper lode in San Simon. It is oer 4.000 feet long and COO feet wide, showing extensive and permanent ore bodies of carbonate of copper. 5Iessrs.

Mr. Henry is also onner of the SIcGill ranch in the valley five miles below his mines, with a water cap icity to run a 100 ton smelter or 200 ton if necessary. The mines are now in shape to pioduce 20 tonsof ore per day. The dcelopmcnts aie under the super, vision of Capt. Mitchell, an experienced miner formeily in chaige of the Santa Rita works.

The business nun ot the town, repiesenling the peaceable clement of the town, ported up a notice on the 24th qrdering all lawless chatactcis to leae town by three o'clock that day. Instead of departing, the rounders posted up a similar notice, ordering the others, under penalty of death, to leavo immediately.

THE MINES. tJooil Sii-ns Tor Tomb-itoiie Work of Development to He I'roitccuteil lie low the IVntci- Level. A woik that every piopeity holder and friend of Tombstone has long hoped for is ibouttobeiniuguralcd In a few months heavy pumps will be at work raising the water from the lower level" of the Grand Cential and Contention Consolidated mires, and the mystciies below the COO foe t level levelled to the world. While E. li. Gage, superintendent of the Grand Cential mine, and L II. Wiley, secretary, were in San Fiancisco a meeting of the directors of the Contention Consolidated was held, and the project jointly discussed. It was tin illy agreed that pumps should be placed in the old works of the Grand Central and :.s soon as sinking be low the 000 le el was resumed, the water should be pumped up to that point and thence run thioiigh the level connecting w ith the Dora Morrison, and from there lioiited to the surface. All the machinery nece-sary for this work has been ordered in San Franci'co, and will be completed and forwarded without delay. The ore reserves in the two mines mentioned are ample to insuie the usual dividends for one vear at the lowest calculation, before which time they can be thoroughly pros pected on the 000 and 700 foot levels. Should goodoie bodies be found below the water level, and the indications arc most flattering in that diicction, the future of Tomb-tone will be insuted for an indefi nite period, and an era of prosperity dawn upon it such as not yet experienced. Below- is our weekly report for the week ending list night: OKAKDCEXrilAL. In the main mine no new developments t report. The stupes appeal s i look about the same. The ore shipment for October will fully equal, if not exceed, that of any, pieuous month in 'hehistory of the mine. The ledge mentioned in our last report, found in the Naumkcag mine, continues to look well, and adds very materially to the yield of the mine. The nature of the gioiiutl in the crosscut on the 000 level has changed somewhat, an improvement being noted. It continues to ship about 90 tons of ore pci day. Bullion yield for October is $170,000. FAIIt VILLA. Sinking the main shaft is being con tinued, and litis attained a depth of 110 feet. Mateiial passed through from 100. foot level is minualized throughout. For raation softer than heritofire. To-day cut a seam of ore that was drifted on in the 100-foot level, and is making the same downward course as above and widening. Seam on hanging wall improving very much. Water in the wiire remains sta tionaiy. No work is being done at any other point, except the main shaft. Every thing in and about the mine is in first, class condition coxTEvno.-s co.Nsur.iDAfEn. But vciy little woik Is being done out side of the stopes nbove the 500 level. The two winzes below that level are about 24 feet down, and at that point the inflow of water prevents further development. The surface stopes, so called because they reach to the top, continue to yield as richly as at the date of our last report. About the usual amount of oie is being dally shipped, and the machinery at the mill and mine is in good order. Bullion yield for October is $140,000. VIZINA. The u-u.d work of development contin ues. The north drip on the ledge from the 350-foot slope is in about 50 feet. 1 he noith diip fiom the 000-foot level is in about the same distance. The formation is favorable for ore, although no consider able quantity has been encountered. Ship about one load of oie each clay from the upper 'stopes to the Boston mine. The west prospect shaft is down about 1 feet, fiom which a diip lias been inn west some 15 feet. ITO.NEW.VLI. Main double compartment shaft down nearly 100 feet. A connection was made today between this shaft and the older workings. About 5,000 Ions of ore ex tracted and shipped to mill from this mine to date. When hoisting works are erected it will not be long before this proves to lie a dividend paving mine. The shaft is new timbcied, and nil through arusiuess air is desceinable, which is sure to prove advantageous to all concerned in the long i tin. iionsnsiiOF. This, since our la-t, has suspended woik, owing to oi dei s fiom San Francisco. It is reported this stoppage is only tempo rary. Surface indications and the appear ance of lock last hoisted indicate that the northwest diirt on the 225-foot level, which is in 185 feet, is in close proximity to an ore body. This is continued by the late developments in adjoining claims, espe cially the Aunt Sally. S VN l'EDHO. On 220-fuot level raising in ore body. From 200-foot level diift is being run to ovcrcut. Have about 12 lcet further to run to make connection, when the ciicu- lation of air will facilitate the stoping of ore. The west drift in the same level is in 100 feet towards Ihe porphjry. South west drill, in 100-foot level, in 20 feet; faeeofdiilt highly mineralized, contains cavities filled with ore. TOMBSTONE M. V M. CO. Everything going along about the same. The old Goodenough stopes yield about the same The same miy be repotted of the ore vein from the main incline. At the Combination shaft theie is nothing new to report. The- West Side continues to look very well. Tno shaft is now in good working tiitu. The stopes are yielding about 24 tons of nulling ore per day, and looking belter. The bullion output for October it little over $00,000 KMI-IltE. No particular news to report in the way of new developments. The Mope between the 300 and 100 levels is up nearly to the latter level and yielding some very fair milling ore. The forma tion remains about the same. DEAN KiCIIMOND. Drifting on ledge; are taking out ore; making preparations to start working shaft. Everything looking well, and fully bearing out the owners' theory of their having a large and valuable properly. SYDNEY Continues to look well, and the recent finding of a large body of milling ore in Naumkcag and adjoining mines gives re newed assurance of what vigorous devel opment may accomplish. The south drift from the 200 foot level continues to follow a fine vein of good ore. WAY LP. The drift started some 25 feet below the incline to connect with the new shaft is advancing rapidly. No sinking will be done in the incline unul the connection is made, which will require two weeks. Some very rich ore is being taken from the stopes. 6CLT.VNA. This claim Is looking well. Next week a force of men will be employed develop ing the recent strike. Are sinking close to Little Devil ground. HEAD CENTER. Nothing new to report. Principal work confined between the 3rd level and the surface. Ships about 15 tons of ore daily to the mill. BIS11KE NOTES. The Silver Bear proves that there are other mines in Bisbec outside of her Queen. A site for a smelter has been se lected, and before sixty days Bisbee will have another bullion producer. The wood road, from Tombstone, has been completed as far as Banning's house, six miles from Bisbec. Mr. Hoadlcy is now engaged surveying the ground between Banning's and Bisbec. When completed, those using the well-known horse trail will find this path of great value. To the Cop per Queen Company must be given the credit for this great public convenience. The Copper Queen continues to produce its regular quota of ore and bullion. Its energetic bmelting manager, Mr. Lewis Williams, has lately been making experi ments as to the utilization of the dust, which proves to be highly impregnated witli copper, from the smelter smoke stack. He has succeeded in making this into a brick, which, when sun-dried, is easily handled in tiie smelter, and pavs handsomely for its manufacture. The ore body, from present appearances, seems to veer east and south around the lower edge of the mountain. This will add to the value of some hitherto neglected claims. The work in the Rucker goes ahead. The Nepluae Company is doing nothing. Various assessment works are being performed. NOTE9. Still sinking on the State of Maine, with fair prospects. Russia estimates the value of the Siber ian gold mines at $0,000,000 a year. The force has been increased on the C, O. D., with most promising indication". Three Brothers looking somewhat better Vigorous development is all that is needed The Winfield is shipping three tons of ore daily to the Randolph hve stamp mill at Watervale. Receipts of bullion and silver at Salt Lake City, Utah, on the 9th, aggregated $40,151.05. Good results at the Eagle. The ore looks well, and the mine is more promis ing than ever, Hoisting, sorting and sacking ore at the Franklin, which, when worked, cannot but yield satisfactorily. The Randolph looks better than ever, and is gradually coming to the front as one of the solid mines. The Denver Mining and Industrial Ex. position is reported to have yielded be tween $30,000 and $40,000 over and above running expenses. The Valentine was sold this week to Chicago parties. This property lies close to the Little Devil and will soon start up to develop its resources. Guelph Consolidated shaft is down 05 feet, with a drift some 30 feet west cross cutting the ledge. Have passed through some 20 feet of ledge matter of a very promising character. The Chrysolite, Little Pittsburg, Little Chief, Amie, Climax and Dunkin mines, Colorado, during the past five years, have produced not less than $15,000,000, which netted not less than $8,050,000, from which dividends were paid to the amount of $4,335,000. The Toppy joins the Good Samaritan and Blue Jacket. Has a 22-foot shaft showing up a ledge of rich ore, at least 8 inches wide, which assays $95 per ton average. This claim, with its neighbois the Bonanza and Blue Jacket will, belore long, prove that this west side ol the camp is not to be despised. North Point is a property that seems to have been overlooked for some time. If location is anything this is certainly a val uable property, situated as it is, 700 feet north of the Contention works, and posses sing within its lines the same formation as both the Head Center and the Contention. Messrs. Hansiug brothers have just re turned from the Santa Rita mountains, having done their annual work on Domin go mine, which lies close to Goodman's Ranch. They have a 50 foot shaft all in ore, and are highly elated with their pros pects, Black Jack, Mule mountains, is an Ari zona incorporation ; D. Aiders, president; J Gatchcll Jones, secretary.

Tho shaft ts sunk 50 feet and the dump sliows 60 tons cf ore, as saying 27per cent copper, and $01 per ton in silver. Tae irrei rcsibb George Rutledge declaies the oie g es heavy in cold, but although we cannot vouch for this, the samples we have seen look well and are certdnly rich in copper and silver.

Joseph II. Xelslet- Killed by an Un known Assassin Xo Clew to be Ferpetntor. About 7.)'clock Wedndsday t'ie sharp re port of a revolver was heard near the cor ner of Fifth and Touglinut streets. Officer James Coyle, who nas at the time in Judge Wallace's court room on Fourth street, ran immediately to the Russ House and trom there crossed Touglinut back ot the Tombstone Co.'s ir'-' , .fhere, on the trail leading dovw into the gulch, he found the body of a man lying across the path. It was already quite dark, but near the apparcntli lifeless body stood two men, one with a lantern, who lived in cabins near by, and h-l been atliicted to the spot by the discharge of the weapon. The prostrate man was recognised as Joseph H. Zeiglcr, a miner, who for some time has been tmploytd as a carpenter at the Em pire. An examination disclosed that life was not yet extinct, although the wounded man was unable to speak or move. A physician was hastily summoned, when it was discovered that Zeiglcr was SHOT TIIItOUGU THE LEFT BltEVST. He lingered for about ten minutes, and evidently was desitous of speaking, as his lips moved and his eyes glanced appeal ingly at those ptcsent, but lie was unable to articulttc and died without leaving a woid to trace his unknown assassin. The body was taken to Rhtei's undertaking rooms, where Dr. Matthens made a cur sory examination of the wound. As stated, the bullet pierced the left breast and must have passed very near the heart, going through tho body and lodging just under the skin of the back, from which place it was taken by the doctor. The wound bled very little outwaidly, but the internal hemorrhage was probably great. 'Ihe bullet was a 41-caliber and flattened on one side, as if lrom contact with n bone in its passage through the body. Deceased was a joung wan 27 yea's of age. He was steady and in dustrious, and from all that could be learned last night, was generally regaided as a quiet and inoffensive citizen. He has tivo urothers in the country, one of whom lives in the vicinity of South Pass. Within a few minutes after the fatal shot was fired a ciowd of several hundred peo ple had collected on the spot, and consid erable excitement prevailed. Many ru mors in legard to the tragedy were in cir culation, but the cause which led to it and the IDENTITY OP TnE ASSASSIN arc alike unknown. From the mass of conflicting rumors, the fact was elicited that a few minutes before the shot was fired, Zeiglcr, in company with a man at present unknown, passed along Fifth street and disappeared in the daikness back of the ici-hiuse. A party living in one of the cabins near the s:ene of the tragedy says he In aril angiy voices, which were followed by a shot, and he was guided to the spot by the groans of the wounded man. Other pait.es claim that Zeiglcr cried out twice after being shot. It is probable the assassin, after firing the fatal shct, returned immediately to the principal streets, as it is reported he ran past the Palace lodging-house on Fifth street, al though no i ne C"u'd give any description of the man. The c.ty and county authori ties are both at noik on the case, but up to a late hour last night no leliablc clew to the petpitrator, or the motive which prompted the devilish deed, had been ob tained. Several pcisons -cre ai rested on suspicion, but after an infoimnl examina tion were discharged. The coroner's in quest will be held at 10 a. m. to-day, when facts may be developed that will leid lo the detection of the assassin. LOCAL NOTES.
