The Silver King Mining company has declaied a dividend of 25'ccnts per share. The poet says, "To c.t is human," and t'uftt's why so many men are running afler er. The Tf inter rains have commenced, and tho man who has not an umbrella gets Tret. Col. Fife has been in town for several days having a social turn among his many friends. George Hearst is said to be sick at Deal ing. There is little chance of his camlag to Tombstone at present. Tho boys growl about cold weather They had better buy heavier underclothes or get their ulsters out of soak. The Las Veas papers sjy a man was choked ihcre eatisg scrambled eggs. Wo deem this, as the Dutchman says, a very bad choke. R. J; Pryke, a well known citizen of Tombstone, has returned from the Yukon country, Alaska, convinced that there is nothing in it. The Milton Nobles diamatlc company lire en route west by the southern route, and will be in Tombstone about the mid die of next month. A woman gave lutth to a child in Chico the other day with seven fingers on one hand and eight on the ether. A sort of a 7 to. 8 commission. A friend of ours atys that "rlce-tOMato soup is very good, and is generally well liked. Dut we think a little" "pearl" bar ley mixed would make it much better. The Jocuistita Mining company has de clared its sixth dividend of $1 per share, or $100,000 on the capital stock of the com pany. This brings the total of dividends up to $750,C00. The family of S. B. Comstock will hortly arrive in Tombstone, where they will reside In the future. Mr. Comstock's confidence in the future of this camp and county Is unlimited, and subsequent events will assuredly prove that it is well founded. John Clark, president, and II. Wright, secretary of the Blue Jacket Mining com pany, arrived from Somonauk, 111., on Wednesday labt. They are also interested 1 the Randolph and other valuable Tomb ton propeitles, and are much pleased with the outlook in the district.- . The editor of the Republican picked up Webster's unabridged, looked through it several times, finally he found a big word f various syllables. He anchored right n that word.- lie surveyed it from all tides, and concluded it was a tine, strong word with a mansard roof, and he just snt down asd built up an article around it. At the last regular meeting of the Aid Society of the Methodist church a vote of thanks was unanimously tendered by tho ladies to Mrs. J. S. McCoy for tho funds received from the dramatic entertainment ol "Abovo the Clouds," given in October by that lady and other friends. S. P. yickers leaves for Hie east this morning, having been summoned to the bedside of his mother, who is dangerously ill. J. V. Vickers is already there, and during his absence his Insurance business is in charge of M. B. Clapp, wVile A. II. Bayllss attends to the real estate business. Colonel R. H. Hafford opened up in fine style last night. His place is on Allen street, next door to Campbell & Hatch's, and is one of the nobbiest and cosiest in town. Ho also keeps the finest brands of cigars to be obtained, aad his stock of liquors is unexcelled.Judging from the samples left at the EpiTAru office last night. Since the fegular trains have been put on between Benson and Guaymas theie are two trains daily to Contention and Cala basas. The morning express from Tucson arrives jn time for the U o'clock freight from 'Benson. Theemlgiant train which leaves Tucson at 13:30 arrives on time for the regular passenger which leaves Benson at 4 p. m. The Ingcrsoll company have ceased sending ore to the Girard mill. It was found that in second class ore only about 00 per cent silver could be obtained. Of first class ere 80 per cent was the average. A very important strike was made in the mine yesterday afternoon, and report says the assays went $400. This property, which i cost the Hearst party $140,000 to ob Ci the control of, will likely pay well for the investment. Tho latest addition to the press of the territory is the Mohave County Miner, pub. lished at Mineral Park, by Anson II. Hraith & Co. The first Issue Is bright and newsy, and is probably abetter paper than the patronage received will warrant for the future. It is republican in politics, James J. Hyde being the editor. The Miner an nounces that it has como to slay and labor for the prosperity of Mohave county. The EriTArn welcomes it as an exchange, and sincerely hopes Its brightest anticipations f success may more them be realized. A Lullaby.

By the republican party: "Ohtdamnltl" A SLIM SHOWING. The Ferclia and Lake Valley Country In New aiexlco-Xot Much Founda tion for a "Uoum." The following letter to the Star, descrip tive of one ot tho much talked of New Mexico mining camps, may prove benefl. cial to those contemplationg immigration : The town of Kingston is located at tho head or Middle Pcrcha, on and along its south side. There aie fifty frame build ings on Main strect which runs parallel with the wash. There' are also sca.tered about the town about twenty log and adobe houses, and about a hundred tents. And v "V)r Immigrants were still pour ing nun tho town, which can furnish them with nothing but bitter disappoint ment. The prineipal mining locations (as they are now rated) in this district are sit uated between the Middle and North Pcr chas, which have a parallel trend, and are about five miles apart. Tho entire lorma Hon is lime, without the slighest sign of ledge matter. TUF. BtjlUOS MINE is one mile north of Kingston. The ore seam, as it is called, was followed in a zig zag Incllno shaft to about CO feet, from which 40 tons of milling ore was shipped to Pueblo, leaving more on the dump. A perpendicular shaft was then put down 05 or 70 feet without stiiklngoie, from which the miners were drifting eastwards. The ore was lost in the incline. This was the condition of the mino when I left tho dis trict. The Supciio1" mine is called the extension of tho Bullion, It has down one shaft about 70 feet,.from which some fine ore was taken out; but there was no more lu the bottom, though it was still being put do wn , and the mi n era were hope ful of striking it lich. About GOO feet noith of this shaft a drift was following a kidney of oie in a zigzag incline. Sev eral other inclines had been worked out. And so we left the Superior. THE SOLITARY AKD ST. CLAllt ro situated on the south side of the North Percha and abort two miles noith of the Superior. I would not Mention these mining locations only for the many wild rumors about their being sold to Gov. Ta bor. Some rich ore was skimmed off tho northeast slope of the Solitary, leaving the lime exposed much the same as a sore when the scab is taken off. Nothing was found in the St. Clair. The Illinois is sit uated about one mile west of the Bullion. Several cuts, inclines and perpendicular shafts were run in and put down from 15 to 40 fcef, from which some fine ore was taken out. They were gouging out some very fine ore from an Incline, in about 20 feet, but which w.ll peter out as the others did. The Polar Star is located about one mile noitheast of the Illinois. Some ore was being gouged from an incline, in about 20 feet. The ore fiom these mines may be regarded as pretty good milling rock. The ore fiom the Illinois lu the finest, that from the Polar Star tho baser, being more of sulphuretcd oie. ths ir.ox KINO is situated about one mile noith of the Illi nols, and about three-fourths o a mile northwest ol tho Polar Star. It is much tho samo as tho mine at Lake Valley. It is a great blow out, heavily capped with lion in fact, the several cuts, including perpendicular shafts, show nothing else but manganese iron ore. It is a much lower gade it on ore than at Lake Valley, but a much larger body, and therefore it should be further developed, as it is more than likely that such development would produce a rich body ol pre the same as at Lake Valley. The mine Is not in opera- tlon, owing to some misunderstanding be tween the'owncrs. It is the only mine in the district ever likely to justify the erec tion of reduction works. When I left Kingston, after devoting five days to the district, there were thirty men employed at all the mines mentioned, and if I mistake not about fifteen more are doing assess ment work in the mountains total, foity rlve mincis at work. The Woodbury Caae, The second trial of Eugene Woodbury for the robbcrj of Bpringer & Hacke's store at Charleston, last February, ended yesterday in tho acquittal of the accused. The circumstances of the robbery are oubtlessyetiemembered by many read ers of the Erinm. The audacity and determination evinced in the planning and execution of the robbery have scarcely been equaled in the criminal ann sis of ihli county. About 10 o'clock one night In February last two men rede np to the store of Springer ft Hacke's in Charleston, and after dismounting and hitching their horses entared the store. Inside were the two proprictors,Messrs.Springer& Hackcs, and five othcr.men, citizens of the place As tho strangirs entered it was noticed their faces were concealed with handker chiefs used as masks. Each had a cocked revolver in his hand, and those present in the store were ordeicd to throw up their hand", which was promptly obeyed. One of the robbers devoted his attention prin cipally to Mr. Springer, aDd by the per suasive eloquence of a six shooter, induced him to open the safe. A sack was produced and the contents or the safe, amounting to about $900, quickly transferred to the sack. The bold bandits then retreated with their booty, keeping the inmates of the store covered until the door was readied, when they mounted their horses and rode swiftly away in the daikness. The whole job was done so quickly and the surprise at its boldness was so complete, that the seven mtft present, some of whom were armed and under oidinary circumstances men whose bravery was unquestioned, could scarcely realize that they had been success lully "stood up" and robbed by two un known men. Woodbury was arrested the following day iu Tombstone, and was identified by some of the parties present as one of the robbers. He was tried at the spring term of the district court, and the result was a disagreement of the jury, six being for acquittal and the same number for conviction. He has been in. jail ever since his arrest at the time of tho robbery, and now that his innocence of the crime has been established, everybody must ad mit that adverso circumstances have been the means of doing him a great injury. The "Homo of Mold." A story about which there Is a fascina tion impossible to resist is told by an ex change. It is of tho "Homo of Gold." Somewhere near the southeast corner of Cochise county, in the Sierra Madrcs, it is said there is a wondeiful valley. Small, inclosed in high rocky walls, and accessi ble only by a secict passage which is known to but few, is this extiaordinary place. It is about ten acres in extent, has running through it a strenm which wa'crs it thor oughly and makes it a perfect paradise, with its exquisite llowers and beautiful trees. In it are thousands of birds of the most beautiful plumage. Running across it is a ledgeof puiegold about 30fccl wide, which glistens in the sunlight like a great golden belt. The stream crosses this ledge, and as it runs, murmurs round blocks of yellow metal as other streams do around pebbles. The ledge of gold is supposed to be solid gold and to run down into the cen ter of the earth. The legend is of Indian origin, and a-ound it clusters a number of Indian stories, in which the name of the ill-fated Montezuma occurs frequently. The descendants of the Aztecs believe flimly that the day will come when Mon tezuma will return and free them from the dominion of the descendants of tho Con quistodoics They believe that the money necessary for this work will be taken from the Madre dc Oro. The secret of the en trance into the valley is carefully guarded by a tribe of Indians living near it, and among them it is only communicated to the oldest men, amid the solemn cere monies of the medicine lodge. Having such a story to work upon there is little, wonder that the vivid imagination of the Mexicans should have built up talcs of men who have found this wonderful place. One is that a certain Jose Alvaraz, while wandering through the mountains in search of game, saw the valley from the top of the wall. Finding that he could not hope,to enter by climbing down, he took up his abode with the Indians who guard thecan yon leading into it. 'The daughter of the chief fell in love with him and betrayed the secret to him. Exactly how she found it out they do not tell. Having been shown the entrance, Jose went in and would pos sibly have cotlcu away with some of tho gold had he not weighed himself down to such an extent that he could not get up the deciivity at the lower end of the passage. He was discovered and the Indians sacii ficed him on the golden ledge with all tho terrible ceremonies of the old Aztec relig ion. She, in despair at losing him, threw herself from the high walls into the valley below. Hundreds of prospectors have spent months of toil trying to find the Madre de Oro, but, it is scarcely lucessary to Eay, without result. . Calico DUtrlct. The following letter, dated Calico, San Bcrnaidino county, California, November 14, explains itsel". It was signed by Sam James, foreman of the Silver King, W. II. Fowler, superintendent, and 55 others, merchants, mincis, etc., of the camp. It, is of special intcicst to mincis and labor ers, who may have contemplated a pil giimago to Calico, and a perusal of the letter will doubtless satisfy all such that it is a good place to give n wide berth. Following is tho letter: Editoii Ei'iTArii : Hearing that a rumor pievails in your ciiy that laboicis and mincis are in stiong demand in this camp at four dollais per day wages, wc jointly and severally e'eny the same and simply state that the demand for labor here is very slight. On the Silver King mine, the principal mine in the camp, there are butthiccmen woiking, and they on con tract, and on picpa-ing a road grade to the mine there arc sixteen men working at to dollars and fbty cents per day. In the Oiiental group of mines not a man is striking a nick. Iu about forty mines in East Calico not more than six men arc working for wages. As this false rumor is piomulatcd io swamp this camp with men at great expense to poor working men, una prooaoiy with the intent to crowd a reduction of ray o hard-working miners, we ask the publication of the fore going in your columns.

The Weather. About every other man one meets greets you with the remark "Splendid weather, isn't it?" Of course it'sjsplendid weather. One would not say so if it were otherwhe, and we dansay it's much better than we deserve. Far away to the cast and north of us the mountain tops are covered with snow, and the blasts that come breaking down tho canyons would shame a bronco on a down urade with a loose switch about his flanks. Certainly we can't see the snow capped hills, and wc don't hanker to, nor have our eais bitten by the chilly wind, but all the same we know it's there. It always is in the north, and the air which comes from there has a frigidity about it that reminds one of an ice cream freezer or the feelings of a republican candidate. When we think of those tilings we are re minded ol the weather here. I never gets too wet to rade nor too cold to freeze. A man doesn't have to wear a horse blanket on his nose nor a wagon cover oyer his cars. He just sloshes around in the mud and slush unsil he looks like a last spring 'dobe, and if he tries to brace the bar keeper he gets the usual discounl,too. But for all that, it is a fine, large country with a decided tendency to run to waste rock. Trouble for the ;aelil Company. The judge of the "first instance" of Arispe, Sonora, writes under his official seal, to Mr. Antonio V. Lomeli, Mexican consul iu Tucson, stating that Messrs.

The judge, Jesus Aguirre, has is sued his summonses for the company, through their repiesenlative, to appear be fore him and make answer to said suit. The time to appear being set at six months, dating lrom November 2, 1882. In view of no response being made by the com- pany the judge has appointed Mr. Jose Ma. Guvlra to look after their interests. In the meantime the property has been at tached and assigned to a keeper, pending the settlement of the claim. The Gachi company is an American company, and P. II. Garbcr, well-kno.vn in Tombilonc, is superintendent. The Tocson Jail llrcakrrs. Edtou EriTArji : T. J. Hazen, a farmer living in Apache county, was here at the post this week. He is a perfectly truthful and reliable man, as nil his ac quaintances say. While heie he slated on tho 7th instant three men rode up to his place, which is about twenty miles from Fort Apache and asked him if he had any barley to sell. He iccognizca one of them as John Mpuihy, one of the murderers of Levy, who escaped from jail at Tucson some time ago. Murphy also recognized him at the same lime, and stated that his companions wctc Moyer and Gibson. Murphy said they were camped in an inac cessible portion of the White Mountains, where they intended to remain for some time, until they heard from fiicnds in Tucson, who were trying to "square" the matter so they could go back. Hazcn a3ked Murphy what he would do in case his friends did not succeed in fixing things with the authorities. Murphy replied that then "hell would pop." He said thej did not consider they had committed any crime, and if they were to be treated as outlaws and hunted from the country they would make their enemies suffer for it. He added, "Wc three are about as hard a game as you can find anywhere, and if we arc driven to desperation we will kick up the d est muss ever raised iu Arizona." Mr. nazen said the men were mounted on good horses, and had several pack animals. They were armed with Winchesters and revolvers. Murphy told aim he knew every foot of tl rrutctry, as he had scouted lhro;;ou u aii cars before. Mr. Hazcn is confident the men arc all in that vicinity, and likely to remain there for some time. J. C. S. FoitT GriAKT, Nov. 15. Jail Delivery at Kl l'n. A jail delivery took place at El ! nso en Tuesday night by which five prisoueis re gained their liberty. Casey, one of the es caped Tucson prisoners, whose arrest at id Paso was reported some days ago, was amongst the number. He and another man were chained to a rock weighing 200 pounds, which they took off with them. They were captured after awhile ind again imprisoned. Early on Monday morning they succeeded in filing their chains, and this time made good their escape. Casey was being kept at the jail until Sheriff Paul, who has gone to Chihuahua, could return. It is said that Casey has been heard of following the railroad track to ward Chihuahua on foot. 1'nK'cil in Ills Cheek. The "wickedest paper" on tho coast, the Stock Exchange, says of our late tragedy: "Billy the Kid has at last passed in his checks and yielded his pure soul, etc. Billy was the last of the cowboys, and had a passing acquaintance with many ot our San Francisco mining men, who were called to Arizona on business.

The strike was made at a depth of filty feet, and consists of a 20-inch streak of gray carbonates.

We have met the enemy and we are his'n. We have made our remarks and we are now ready to hear the gentleman from New York. We could have dug out, perhaps, and explained about New York, but when almost every state in the union rose up and made certain statements yes terday, we found that the job ot explaining this matter thoroughly would be wearisome andjrequire a great deal of time. We do not blame the democracy for this. We are a little surprised, however, and grieved. It will interfere with our wardrobe this winter. With an overcoat on Wyoming, a plug hat on Iowa, a pair of pantaloons on Pennsylvania and boots on the general result, it looks as though we would go through the winter wrapped in a bed quilt and profound meditation. We intended to publish an extra this morning, but the news is of such a char acter that we thought we would get along without it. What was the use of publish ing an extra with a republican majority only in Red Suites ? The cause of this great democratic frcshit in New Yerk yesterday but why go into details, we all have an idea why ft was so. The number of votes would seem to indicate that there was a tendency to democracy throughout the state. Now in Pennsylvania, if you will look over the returns carefully but why should we take up your valuable time in offering an explanation or a political matter of the past. Under the circumstances some would go and'yicld to the soothing influences of the maddening bowl, but we do not advise that. It would only furnish temporary relief, and the recoil would be unpleasant. We resume our arduous duties wilh a feeling of extreme ennui, and with that sense of surprise and astonishment that a man does who has had a large brick block fall on him when he was not expecting it. Although we feel a little lonely to-day haying met but a lew Republicans on the street, who wcic obliged to come out and do their marketing wo still hope for the future. The giand old Republican party but that's what wc said last week. It sounds hollow now and meaningless, somehow, because our voice is a little hoarse, and we are snowed under so deep that ft is dim cult for us to enunciate. Now about those bets. If the parties to whom we owo bets and we owe most ev erybodywill just agree to take the stakes and not go Into details, not stop to ask us about the state of our mind, and talk about how it was done, we don't care. We don't wish to have this thing explained at all. Wc are not of an inquiring turn of mind. Just plain facts are good enough for as, without any harrowing details. In the mean time we are going to work to get some more money to bet on the next elec tion. Judge Folgcr and others, come over and sec us when you have time, and we will talk this matter over. Mr. B. Butler, we wish we had your longevity. With a robust constitution, we find that most any man cr.n wear out cruel fate and get there at last. We do not feel so angry as wt do grieved and surprised. We are pained to see the American people thus betray our confidence, and throw a large wardrobe into the hands or a relentless foe. .Mining experts. Professor Win. F.
