'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,

The Happy Valley r.inch was bought

The following is the weekly report end

The main shall has been sunk to a depth
of 125 feet, and will be continued down
150 feet when connection will be made with

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.
They are cross-cutting in the ore body in
Ibe south shaft, and expect to cut the ore
body in a few days, when connection will
lie made Willi the north shal'l, and the drift
continued south along the oie body.
The usual woik going on about the same.
At the GooJenough they are still following
the vein running from the main incline,
and extracting oic fiom the old stopes
above the 90-loot level. Nothing new at
the combination shaft, si ill working in the
old stopes, which continue to.yield very
well. At the West Side, the shaft has been
timbcied and is now ready for the works.
The building is about completed, the tirn.

This ( omp.iny the Ingersoll have gone
to the expense of puttiug in a siring of
blanket sluices 100 feet long, six sluices in
length, each 14 inches. This work lias
been conducted under the advice and ln
mictions of Mr. Wm. McMastcrs, whose
practical expeiicnce and well known abilr
iiy aie so well Known. The lcsults of
these operations aie as might have been
expected most gratifying and encouraging.
Are sinking on this property with four
shafts. 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.
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

may be expected.
Word comes to us that the Copper Queen
is sending out the u-ual amount of bul

We hear, however, that Lawyer Tom Fitch
is hatching a plan todi-privethis company

which he asserts was obt.diitd by fraud.
There may he manv old sores

of a camp like Bisbee, should have their

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

A QneHtion for Landlord.
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
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

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,

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
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
