Almost ul daylight the streets and saloons wcic thronged with eager partizans, all anxhrn for the strjgglo to begin. The Keajjl phalanx were out in full strength, and at the commencement were appi rei y coir dent of the result. The democrats, not. withstanding tlic odds against them, wen hopeful and vigilant, while the repulib enns, relying upon their Neagle allic-, thought their victory wou'd liean eisv one. The wiBe precaution ot the board of su. pervisors in recommending the appoint ment of a number of special deputy slier Id's, acting in conjunction with the police force, preserved the peace and prevented any seiious disturbance during the day.

ItitnclicM Sold. 'I he Tucson Citizen says that the Happy Valley r.inch, owned by Olnrley P.iige, and the Meadow Valley ranch, owned by D 'ii Sanford, have passed into the hands of other owners. The consideration for the first was $30,000 and for the latter $8 000. Messrs. Paige and Sanford arc both well known in Tombstone, and many of our clt'zcns are familiar with the proper, tiesa ld. The transl'eis were madcihiough Judiic Silent, who, together with his asso ciates the purchaserof the Sauford ranch. The Happy Valley r.inch was bought for Walter Vail who proposes to use it for iho breeding of tine, blooded slock. It is situated north of Pantano and lies between mountains in the shape of nn epp-c the hil s converging to within a quarter ol a mile of each other at one end, tuinishing the only egress. The water supply is ecu- trally located and is abundant. The San- ord ranch is well known the country over and occupies the whole of the intervening country between the Empire ranch and rull & Oclioa's range at Pantano.

Wood, the trader at San Car lo', who was Indicted for frauds in ctn iirclion with Parson Tiflany by the grand jury at Tucoon, is well Known throughout southern Arizona, and as a matter of jus t ce we give bis version of the affair. He wasicccntly in Tucson and to a reporter of the Citizen he said in substance that here is nothing m the charges and lie J! not believe t.ial Agent Tiffany has ecu guilty of anyting but incompetency r unit it will be possible to convict him. fhe cases are mo-tly trumped up and if dffany himself had been here it would lave been impossible to have indicted dm. Mr. Wood is nu old resident of the erritory and luu always been respected, ilis views are entitled to consideration, specially as they are backed by the st ilc nents of other reliable parties conversant ith the alfairs, whom the United Stales d strict attorney did not see fit to call be fore the grand jury for fear il would ic luce the number of indictmtuls be would iave the privilege of drawing at thirty lollars apiece.

The usual work of development has stculily advanced, making some real showing wheie It has been assiduously sought, and in all quar. teis the progre.-s is of a satisfactory na. lure, and full of encouragement to those who have invested their rneney and hope lor a rich harvest in the near futuie.

Tiie material en countered in the shaft is much softer and strongly mineralized, giving evidence of the ore being similar to tin t which was stoped on the 100 level. There is water in the winze.without chance since first stiuck. Every thing is working in first-class order. SYDNKY.

At the present moment working three with a toico of 20 men. This com pany intends running a 70 foot level to connect with these shafts. As a fact these levels all show good ore. In addition a tunnel is being driven, the length of which is 130 feet. The ore there shown up averages at least $100, as as. says have been obtained from $30 to $1,000 per ton. OltANU CEN'tdAL. The northwest drill still 1 ok ny well and yields a goal amount of fair milling ore. Hie ore stopes continue to yield very well, and the usual amount ot oie is be ing snipped to the mill. George Ames, ol the film of Hcott, Prcscoit & Scott of San Francisco, the large foundry men, arrived yesterday and will assist in. In. augurating the work of raising the. water from the GOO loot level. It is decided that the pumps will be plated at the Flora Monison shaft.

Word comes to us that the Copper Queen is sending out the u-ual amount of bul lion; thai the ore produced, if iijytliing, shows up and assays belter than ever be lore. The mine never wits in beder tiiui than now, and long may her succss last. We hear, however, that Lawyer Tom Fitch is hatching a plan todi-privethis company of its already acquired p dent to thegiound, which he asserts was obt.diitd by fraud. There may he manv old sores in leg.ud to the acquirement of miniim claims in this district, but it does seem hard tnat innocent puichasers, men who have spent so much money for the benefit of a camp like Bisbee, should have their lights assailed and disputed. san raoKO.

The footwall shows four inches of a led talcose clay, which is crtainly a good .n. dication. At a depth of 200 feet, if a drill is run in a southeasterly direction, it may prove, and most likely will, that a silver bearing ledge runs through this claim into the Hendricks and Atlanta, that may pruve of some value to the dMiict. HENDRICKS. Professor Church and Frank Corbiu reached Bisbec last night, in order to in augurate and commence work on this claim, which certainly possesses a wide and paying body of lead carbonate ore. The iihin Company of Nev Britain, Conn; were xfi7most the firstij?cstors in Bisbee properly; and every one will plea sure the commencement of the work of development on their fivo claims in this district. ItANDOLril. Woik was suspended yesterday for a few days. Superintendent Fuller feels confi dent, not.only In the future of this mine, but in the early resumption of active op. eralions tending to make this property one of the mainstays of the camp.

Good S.marilan and Bunker Hill prop erties are at present idle, but only for a time. Work on Hie Dean Richmond progresses most favorably and without interruption, every day proving the incieasing aud in. triusic vnlue of the property The Valentine, a properly situated near the Rmdolpli, has this week changed hands al n nominal price. Bisbee lias two lawsuits foreshadowed on the next term of court, viz: Copper Prince vs. Copjier Queen, and Copper King, virtually the Copper Queen Co., vs. theie futed owners, Dyer and Heiriiig. $20,000 had been uppiopiiatcd by the Coppei Queen company lor the development of ike Copper King. As both subs will be (ought lo their bilter end, let us hope they will bolh be ended by the coming term of court. As is well known, an adverse to the pat ent for the Atlanta mine has bc-en filed, but fills" Vase'' is not li.ey to come up, owing to the upnliant declin ing to lake the necessary steps lo urge the matter forward. Tom Fitch again appears as opposing counsel in ibis c ise, and along with Hugh Failey, of Tucson, lias ob. tained Iwo-thirds of the spoil should their side prove victoi ious, by a deed given by the would-be owncis of the Satisfaction claim, a previous location of the Atlanta mine. There is a good deal of assessment work being done in this district, which of all ollicrs in the county seems to be well thought of, aud tor which there is a gwod future. Mining matters and pursuits have, dur ing the past week, been much interlered witli by the excitement produced by the county election. Court convenes in Tombstone on Mon dty next. It was reported about town Tues lay that the date of commencement had been postponed. This was owing to the fact that .1 udge Hoover received a telegram summoning him to Washington on urgent bus'ness. However, arrangements have been perfected whereby Judge Pinuey will preside at the ensuiug term, which will be gin as stated. Cm Cutler returned T.icsday from St c,)le It'ick d,s net, NewMcnco While there lie enjoyed a lilt lu thrilling expe rience witli a gan of "rustlers." About a d zen of tiicin jumped the camp one nigin, but ttiey were successfully stood off by Mr. Cutler and his companions. About fifty stints were fired in tile melee, aud a number of the predatoiy scoundieis were wounded. Nogalcs is at ptcsent very lively. There are more than a;huudred lents there, aud one is lemiuded of tlic old '49 times when he hears the fiddling and whoops and pis tol shots of a night. However oniy one murdei has been reported. There is said to be any quantity of game along the line of the New Mexico and Ar izona ro.ul. Bear, deer and antelope are often seen from the windows of passing trains. Just befoie the close of the polls yes iciday, Al. E. Joyce, of the Oiiental saloon, vas attacked by Marshal Neagle and a number of his fctnkcnrunu forced outside of the lopes. Ho was cnallenging a le peater at the time, and had a perfect right to do what he did. In the melee he was tlnown to the ground and kicKcd several limes before Ins friends could rescue him from his dangerous position. In tiie meantime, he held ou to Nc gle and diagged him into the middle of tnc street when they wire separated. For a time, sci ious trouble was appichended, and Neagle's cotlisu iu the matter was se verely commented upon, even by Ins best f i iends. Later, after Requa was sh'it he and Ins deputies did good and effective work in restoring order. The prompt manner in which Sheriff Bchan acted ic tlects great credit upon him. Tlieanest of Thomas Hamiuil was simply an outrage, and can only be excused on the ground of expediency. Judges Robinson and Southard arrived yesterday fiom Tuc-on, al George P. Williams, f the firm of Etrll, Smith, Robinson & Wi.liaua?. APTKIl THE BATTLE. The Count Completed The Vote for Precinct Offlcera. D i liter -st ii T uesday's election was unabat-d yesterday, and the excitement was maintained at fever heat throughout the day. The "independents" were un willing to concede the defeat of their far. orite, as long as there remained a shadow of hope for success But as the count slowly iiiogressed, the irresistible logic of the ballots at last forced upon them the knowledge that irretrievable disaster had overtaken their cause and their candidate. As the full realization that all was lost dawned upon them, their expressions of disappoimnunt and disgust were loud and frequent, and many were heard to exclaim that they would be "d d if they ever wanted any inuic independent nonsense in theirs" 'Ibe republican, when it became certain that Ward was elected, were consid. ciubly elated, but did not exhibit much gratitude toward the Neagle men, who, as everybody know, are alone lesponsiblcfor the success of the republican nominee. The democrats were, as a rule, jubilant, as they have good cause to be, for their success, considering the disad vantageous circumstances, was simply wonderful. Returns from outside pre cincts arrivals during the day, and served to swell the majority for the demoratic ticket. Up to hour of going to press re. turns from all but seven precincts had been received. Elsen here will be found n tabulated statement of the result, showing the vote lor each candidate in the several precincts. As soon as the relurns from the other pre cincts come in (which will probably be to. day) the tabic will be corrected and repub lished. The figures can be relied upon as absolutely coircct. The counting ws com pleted at 4 o'clock this morning. Following is the vote for constables and justices ol the peace inTomtttoae: rniST rrtEciNCT.

The following is a late decision by Judge Hoover upon a question or some importance. He says: "This is an ap peal from iho prob ite court on questions of botli law and fact in an action brought under the F ircible Entry and Unlawful Detainer Act, to recover possession of nrenuses aliened to be unlawfully de tained after notice to quit served upou the tenant. Plaintiff's proofs establish a ten ancy from month to mouth and the ser vice upon the defendant, the tenant, then being in possession of the demised prem ises, of a written order to quit and sur render up the premises. This notice was served upon Maich 17, 1881, and specified April 1, 1881, us the date of surrender. The question rise3 upon defendant's mo tion for a non-suit as to the sufficiency of the notice. Taylor, ou Landlord and Ten ant, page 334, section 478, declareu the common law rule to be that a letting from mouth to month can only be terminated by a month's notice thereof. An exami nation of other authorities shows this to he the rule adopted iu ibe common law states where no statutory provision con trols. Iu this Territory the common law is adopted where the statute is silent, and the statute is silent upon this point. Upon the authority cited the court holds the law to be that a month's notice is neces sary to terminate a tenancy from month to month, and defendant's motion is granted." " Accidental Shooting. Just before the polls closed yesterday a fracas occuncd on Fifth street, between the two polling-places. A loud-mouthed Neagle man was nourishing his six shooter around in a piomiscuous manner, when it was accidentally discharged. Mr Requa, a miner employed at the Con. tention, who was acting as deputy bhcriff, was standing near and the bullet took ef feet in the external surface of the right 1. g about thice inches below1 the knee j lint ranging downwards and inwards, fracturing the large bone of the leg and lodged just back of the ankle joint from where it was removed. The injury is such that it may necessitate amputation. Dr. Goodl'ellow, who happened to be standing by Requa's side, caught him in his arms as he fell, and he was temporarily con veyed into Lenoir's furniture store. The doctor afterwatds dressed the wound and extracted the bullet as stated. The acci dent was the result of inexcusable careless, ness which deserves the severest censure. John Alartiu, living on Ninth, between Allen and Ficmont streets, had a valuable horse stolen a lew days since. The animal was taken at night, and its loss was not disc iveicd until noon tlic following day. Mr. Martin has made diligent search, but as yet has obtained no clow to the missing animal. It was stolen the night of the Zeifiler murder, and the belief is enter tained that Williams perpetrated the theft and escaped to Sonoia, where the owner will proceed iu quest of his property. Harry Hatch, brother of Frank Hatch, connected with the house of P. W. Smith & Co., was elected sheriff of San Mateo county, on the 7th inst. .This is a marked compliment to Mr. Hatch, as be is the first democratic sheriff elected in that county for twelve years. Mr. Hatch was in the employ of M. E. Joyce several years ago, when Joyce received the democratic nomi nation tor sheriff; at that time the repub licans were some 800 in the majority 1 moral, "tick to yaur parr. APACHES AT HOME. Ueneral Crook at Man Carlos His Treatment ot the Indiaiib, ."to. A late number of the Tucson Star con tained an interesting letter from San Cu ius, from which wo extract the following concerning the work which General Crook has done and the peculiarities and charac teiistics of the Apaches: General Crook has been studying the situation for nearly two months, during which time he has been on the road or camping with the Indians at the agency. No one can realize the amount of woik done by this comminder unless he could be on the ground, and note with what tireless energy he watches every move of tne Indians, aud directs in person the operation of counting and tagging. He has had very long conferences with ull the Apaches, including all renegades now in Arizona. They recited their grievances and stated boldly that they had lost all faith in white men, including soldiers; they had made up their minds thrt il would be better to die in the mountains than starve on reservations. They con tcmplated a general outbreak of all the Apache nation, but wlitn they heard Crook was coming back they deteimincd to wait till he came and they could find out what he was going to do. If he was going to treat them as justly as when lasi in charge, they would leave the adjust ment of their grievances to his sense of justice, as to what was right. One chief. Juan Clishe, said, "When I was fighting you I got the worst of it; atl my family and nearly all of my baud were killed, but when I gave you ny hand and said I wanted to be at peace, you be came the best friend I ever bad." 'dhuttlepan, head chief of the Tontos, said, " 1 got througli of fighting with you, you never let me sleep; you hunted me like a coyote; you killed numbers of my people, and I was glad to get to Camp Verde and lay down my arras." (This chief surrendered 2,300 of his people at Verde in May, 1873.) "When I surren dered you told me so long as I behaved myself you would be my best friend, and you kept your word. I have kept my people at peace and have made them work, as you told me I should, but 1 couldn't hold them much longer, as things were getting too bad here. The white men we have had in charge of us have been a great deal worse than Indians." The IndIans,without exception, complain of the worthless aud rascally interpreters, through whom they had to transact their business, and perhaps if all were known some of the blamelaid upou AgentTiffany would have to be borne by the men in question. Thnlndianssaythe interpreters are rascally. They said, "When we tried to talk to the agent or commanding officer of the troops they would always sav, "How much are yi u goinj lo give us?" So we could notgettosay anything. Everything teemed to be for sale." The White Mountain Indians complained bitterly of the climate in the valley of the San Carlos, and also of the water. They also said that the sun burned up their crops as fast as they came above giound. One of the chief's said, "Our corn comes up finely, it looks well and grows fast lor a time, but when it is knee high i.t turns yel low and dies, and that's been the way with the agents. TUey do first-iate when they first come.but they soon cbange,and instead of helping us they help themselves," The Apaches complain bitterly of Agent Tiffany, and they say they followed up wagon loads of goods which he sold to neighboring towns. This seemed singular in view of Tiffany's reputation for sanctity. A great many Indians have hymn books inscribed, "From your sincere and all', friend, J. C. Tiflany." The Indians speak in terms ot endearment of Col. Green and Major Randall,whowerein charge of them years ago. They call Randall the rous captain, say he is their brother, and want him to come back. Gen. Crook toid them that so long as they behaved he would be their best friend. He wanted them to set lo work gaining their own livelihood, so as not to be dependent on the bounty of the government, and to assist him in bringing iu on the reservation every Apache on the warpath. For this purposeevcry man and boy among them should be counted dally, so that none of the evil disposed could go of stealing and depredating generally, lie believed the majority of Anaches were well disposed, but h knew that theie were a number of Bad ones, and he would say to the bad ones, that if they wanted to make any trouble they had better make it now, and find out who was rrnnini: this country. He did not wish to shed human blood if he could avoid it, but the Apa ches, one and all, must behave themselves, or he would not leave one of them alive. All Indians arc tagged with a metal tag of different shape, denoting the tribe to which they belong They are also care fully measured, their ages and general description taken. From the measure ments it is seen that the Indians do not come up to the average of white men in size or weight. Very few have any sui plus flesh, bodies compactly made, legs finely muscled, and lung power unsur passed. The total number of bucks, from 15 years upward, may lie called an even 1,300. In the early morning it is an intci esting sight to watch these 1,300 Indians wending their way to the General's head quarters lor their daily count. By nine o'clock they are all grouped by tribes, and the counting commences, and is usu ally finished by noon. The jipaches arc divided into clans, each bearing the name of some plant in digenous to the country, or of some topo. graphical peculiarity of the section in which the band resides. They are polyg. araists, if they choose to be, but not free to marry whom they please, as there are restrictions which cannot be invaded, pre venting a young uuclc irom mairyng within his own clan. This subject is per- haps of more int-rcst to the scientific world than it is to the average reader. General t rook, I was told, had given much attention to the subject, and much valuable anil c mprehensive infor muion has been accumulated by one of nis aides, who has devoted many years to the study of ctl nology. TUESDAY'S CONTEST. ome Democratic. JlDJorltlrs A Close cnll for Count' supervisor. The returns are nil in with the exception of Galeyvillc, West Huachuca, Winches ter and Pi tie's ranch. The total vole in ibe county, with the exception of jthe pre incts not yet heard from, is 2,04-1, of which Hon. G. II. Oury received 1,474 and DeFoicst Porter 1,170, thus giving the democratic nominee for congress major by of 304. Hoiton, for superintendent of public instruction, did not run as well as Oury, receiving only 1,403 votes against 1,230 fo: Davis, leaving Honbn a majority f 107. The cause of Davis running ahead of P rter is prob ibly due to the fact that in the county are a great many friends of the former, who knew him iu Aloliavc county, and voted for him on the score of old acquaiutancts'iip. Tlic four PHcincts yet to be heard fiom are all small ones, and will not materially change the nsulton thetciritoiial and the greater portion of the county ticket. In the mat ter of the supetvisors, however, the re turns yit to come in are liable to change the result as it stands at picsent. Blinn, democrat, and Monigon e y, republican, are elected without dotibi, and by good majoiitics. The contest b.teen IJUI.I.IS AND WHITE is exceedingly close, with, tlic prospects in favor qf the election of the former, who has, solar as heard from, 1,289 against 1,284 for White. The snuggle for second place in the race for sheriff, is also very close. Tticuturns now in give Carr 802 against 827 for Neagle, and the chances arc that Carr will gain enough in the four precincts not leturucd to entitle him to "sconnd money." Ward leads his com petitors with a total vote of 1,074, which will net be materially increased. The most remarkable vole r-ccived by any candidate is that of Judge Peel. His competitor, T J. Drum, was justly con sidered one of the stioiigcst nominees on the republican ticket, and yet the gallant old wheel-horse of democracy comes np. smil ng with a grand total of 1,804 against 840 lor Dium, or a majority ot 055. Jones' majority is 450, and will probably be in ci eased to near 500. Considering that the 'independents" knifed him on every pos sible occasion, this may be regarded as a very fiaticiing testimonial of the people's appreciation of an honest and efficient -public scivunt. 'I he ltlurns in give Pat Ho'd.ind, for en oner, a total of 1.342 agaiusU.llG for Harney. This result will n t be matci ially changed by the remain ing four piecincis. NEW MEXICO ITEMS.
