Huachuca post is n beautifully shunted
camp, and the order and legul.uity ob.

that Incited tho place. Thence to the
Santa Ciuz valley is n succession
of ranches, with a good supply of
water. Tho soil for the most part is a
black loam, which with caro and irriga
lion would gio.v anything, nnd tho grass
is luxuriant and nutritious. Our neigh
bors, hw ever, dwell under tho weight of
old Spttnisi grants, the fear of which has
cuit died their energies aud cramped their
exertions. This, and their proximity to
the Sonora line, which favors the stealing
of cattle by the v.ily Miwlcins, tend to
protract the scttlctmnt of this district.

Ilarshaw minim; camp, which up to a
yeir ago was a thiiving dlstiict, is now
suffering from a relapse, which is no uu.
common thing in mining history. Its pop.
ulalion at its zenith was 800 to Q0O souls;
to-day it is about 70. One hundred tlious
and dollars would not pay for the lumber
which has been expended on tho buildings ;
und In addition to framo there aie several
Btonc aud adobe structures which would
bo worthy of a better ncighboihood. Tho
town now presents n most desolate appear
ance. The stores are all shut and planked
up, and the only signs of life aii a isiblo in
the Palace restaurant and Jamison's se
loon, which latter is the only resort of
thoso whose buslncssor necessities picenl
their leaving tho place. The Hcrmosa mine
is situated iu the hill aboie town, and the
mill for the reduction of tho oic is said to
bo one of tho most perfect in the teultory.
All is quiet, how ecr, to-day, and the su
perintendent, Mr. Finlay, h is au easy time

incline shaft, said to bo COQJeet, running
with tho slope of the htll, with sundry
crosscuts and drifts, as to which the com
pany is very rctiicnt. Some woik has
been done on the Lltllu Chap, but tho
company's other properties arc so far un
developed. The Hardshell, .owned by
Captain It. 11. liichardson and others, is a
valuable prospect. It has a shaft 100 ftet
deep, with several tunnels alid other works,
proving its intrinsic value. Of course, as
is usually thu case In a mining district,
tho wholo country-sido is located aud
rmnuuients abound, but the mines uicfew-
one-half mllo southwest of Ilarshaw, has
steam hoisting works, idle, at piescnt, for
want of ore to hoist. Tho Alia mine, ono
mile, on tho Mowery road, from Ilarshaw,
is ono of tho best mlpes in the district. It
is owned by the AVashlnglon pool panics,
and, to my idea, is one ut thu most valua
ble of their claims. The American mino
is anotho of tho piapertles, incorporated,
-which shows well. On tho western slope
of tho Patagonia mountnlns, Iheio arc
quite n largo number of locations initio,

small, but rich In silver and lead, tho aver,

Among tho many locations, tho following
maybe mentioned: Unlucky Jim, -Dead,
wood and Patagonia. Tho Gie.enwood

his had considerable woik douo on it.
Tho Mayflower, a copper mine, is about
flvo miles duo west from Ilarshaw, in a
porphyry and quaitzltc formation, and,
judging fiom tho samples, looks well. Tho
Flux mine, owned by the Denson Smelter
company, five miles from Ilarshaw and
three miles from the Trcneh mine, Is be
ing actively opened up, nnd, so far, with
great success.

Tlic .Mow cry mine is now owned by the
founder's heirs and other parties in Tucson,
and is held, under a United Slates patent.
Its course js'southw est and northeast with
n noithcrlydip, and tho casteily and west
erly evtensions of tho old mine form a
valuable property. The old Jlowcry shaft
is worked to a depth of 800 feet, and in
tho bottom of the same there-is a ledge of
galena ore about twenty feet wide, which
usajs inflead liom 40 to oO per cent and
carries fijRm $25 up to $200 per ton in sil
ver. This average may not appear high,
but, from tho developments made, aud the
extent of tho ledge, the property is ceitam
ly a vahmblc one.
With tho exception of the ncccss iry as
sesmcut woik, the extensions have not so
lar been opened out.
The Iloinan mine, between the Ilarshaw
road and ilowciy Hat, three and a half
miles south of Ilaishaw, is well spoken of.
It has two shafts, 15 and 20 feet deep,
showing n vein of lend carbonate and ga
lena oie seven fca wide; course and dip
of vein samo as 3Iowery mine; averages
$28 in silver, w ith 42 per cent of lead,
whilst on the surfaco some of the carbon
ate gave 18 per cent lead and 10 CO per
ton iu silver.
Duo west of Mowcry flat a number of
locations have Lcen made, on what is
known as the Guajalote (Spanish foi tur
key) lode. This lode can be traced for a
distance of two miles, and itscioppings in
many pi ices are two feci wide at least.
3Iotol these locations arc at present meie
piospccts, though even wcro they even
paitially developed they could bo made to
produce ore enough to keep a couplo of
smcUeis niuning all the time, which would
iniusonew life into tun camp, and give
woik to many men. The ore on this lead
is for the most psit galena, but one pecu
liarity is specially noticeable, namely,
that a poitiou stems to carry eold, which
in tho Alp niiuo goes as high as 22, as
well as 11 in siher and 5 per cent lead.

lies about four miles south of old Mow cry
camp, and lias been tho secne of a mining
boom, which, unluckily for tho place, did
not last. Being a good dcal'smaller than
Ilarshaw, the desolation is more apparent..
Thcie are, peihaps, ten good adobe houses
and fifteen fruno -houses,-und the inhabit
ants arc l educed to those doing assessment
woik on tho pool and other neighboring
mines. This pool business has worked
harm to the district, and neither the own
ers of the pool mines nor -the eastern par
ties who hold tho bond on these claims aio
satisfied with the courso of events. This
tiansaction was inaugurated over two
ears ago by lion. J. IC. Luttrell, tluough
whoso Instrumentality eleven mines (with
twenty-six owners) wcro bonded for two
years to some cistern capitalists, having
oxtended for six months, for which exten
sion 10,000 has been fuithcr paid to the
owners. It is claimed that duiing the
cuirency of the bond the eastern folks
havo spent $120,000 in developing their
properties, electing a good house, making
roads and other improvements. If this
sum has been expended, a cursory visit
has failed to impress on the mind of the
w liter any veiy gieat discovciy of mineral,
or to provo that the mines wcie bonded at
anything but a fictitious and cxborbilant
piice. Indeed, weio the pool mines to be
held up as the best prospects in the dis
trict the camp would bo only good to be
let alone, but this is not so. The general
in this district is a low grade galena, some
mines going hlgliti in silcr than others.
At depth this ore in many cases turns into
numdic, which, with the present facilities
for working, can not bo made to pay.
Underlying this mundic it is hard to say
w hat is found. Some say the ore increases
in value and contains a preponderance of
sv.'.flmritts ""irftsln5tht!rsTTiyore tho gives

Some of the shafts on tho poo mines
have attained a depth of 200 feet without a
commensurato Increaso either in the rich
ncss of tho ore or widening of the veins.
The country lock of the district is an iron
girnct, a mineral whose presence no

Outsido tho pool mines may be mentioned
tho Davis mine (situated close to camp),
w Inch once belonged to a New York com.
pany, but which was lately sold by the
shciifffor unpaid debts. The old Wash
ington mine is now being worked, and a
contract was lately let to do CO feet of sink
ing. This pioperty has been bonded by
Haggln &, Tevis to U It. liichardson (pan
ownci of the Hardshell at Ilarshaw) at a
model ate figure, and should the mine show
np well is ono of the properties that will
tend to make the camp show new life.
ThoEclmont is an old mine, liuvlnu been
worked 18 or 10 years ago. They ha e a
perpendicular shaft down 110 feet, nnd an
incllno of 70 feet. The ledge is 00 feet
wide, dips west, and aicrages about $23 to

Belmont to find a purchaser would rank
next in order.
The Umpire and Silver Bell are also
patented claims, full of mineral but not of
a. high grade. Following soutli from these
claims many locations have been made, up

must bo mentioned. This is one of the best
looking mines iu the district, and were the
working of it only in good, experienced
hand", I no doubt it would pay. After
much change of ownership this mine was
sold by J. K. Luttrell to an eastern com-
pany. A long and ceep trench has been
run north and south, showing up a large
amount of metal,somc very good free mill
ing cnibonatc ore. In this trench arc sunk
sundry shafts and inclines. On tho whole,
the mine appears toliac not had a fair
chance; however, the pioperty no doubt
will turn out far better than might be sup
posed from present appearances. Doc

The liepuLlica'i of last evening sajs
thatE. T. Hardy will sue this paper for
libel, in truthfully relating some of the in
cidents or his late hunt on the San Pedro,
and claims that instead of a "blind calf,"
Jones shot a schoolmaim. Ordinarily we
would not be surprised at Jones shooting

immediate vicinilv. nt.il bis mivinio ;.,
this case can only be accounted for upon the (
icasonablo hypothesis that he saw Smith
sneaking up lo There the lady wa sitting,
and'not desiring any infringment upon his
t-ateuts, concluded to take a shot at him.
Shooting at aiijoue, especially .i friend, is
apt lo make a fellow ncnous, and the un
cerain condition of his ueives accounts
for the oung ludy being wounded, not
seiiously by any means, but she walks to

never get another dead duck. It happened
in this way: Smith, Jones ard Ilaidy nil

On the way, they stopped to shoot at a
covey of quail and hitched the team near
the roadside. While they were hunting,
the young schoolmaim came along, and,
as she had some distai.ee to walk, cou-
ciuueit she would wait until the
owner of the team came up, and, possi

Ills Idea.
Secretary Teller in his annual rcpoit
recommends the disaiming of all Indians
supported by the government, a fair com
pensation being made to them for their
guns. He wants the Indi ms to have an
equal show with the white men in all
questions aflecting propeity light', and
believes that many icservations should be
lcduccd iu sie and tluown open to actual
settlers. Tho Indian children should be
given the adv ullage of technical turning
in manual schools, civilizing them being
cheaper then suppressing outbicuks.
The above is no doubt good so far as it
QS, )' H. seems to a man under a
blanket that the safest, most economical
and surest way to settle the Jmlian ques
tion in Arizona is to remove the Apaches
to the Indian Territory. .

The Tucson Citizen gives the following
description of the late bull fight: At a
given signal the trap was raised and a
tbrce-jcar-old bull bounded in. For a
moment he stood confused atlhe applause
which greeted his appearance, and watched
w ith glaring eyes the actions of Colonel
Yaucz aud assistants, who, standing near
tlic center of the ring, flaunted their red
flags before him. The htsitation was but
momentaiy, for with lowered head he
scattered both men and flags. For a while
he mide things lively, and the boys hunt-
ed their holes without' being twice told.
At last tiring down, ho was again roused
to fury by Colonel Yaucz dexterously
planting a rosette of colored paper squarely
in the center of the bull's forehead, and
later on two others, one in the nose and
the other in tho left shoulder. However,
in the end he fagged out and gave way to
a spotted bull with hoins uncropped; but
as lie was one of those bulls that could
neither be coaxed or prodded into battle,
he was driven out, and the cries of "toro
Colorado'' were heard on every side.
"llic toro Colorado," to be fought that day
was then let in. He was a fine-looking
specimen of his kind, and built for a fighter
from the ground up. He entered the ring
with a rush and lost no time in getting
down lo business. Wherever a red flag was
waved or a man showed himself in the
ling his loulship was there also.and when
they, as they always did, took refuge be
hind the screens provided lor their safety,
lie made an eftbit to butt them down and
follow in. When Colonel Yanez attempted
to ornament the bull's forejiead with a
losetto he missed it, and narrowly escaped
being made into a rosette himself. After
repe.Uei' efforts the rosette was pinned on.
Now, madder than ever, aud foaming at
the mouth, he bellowed with rage and
charged furiously. Some of the escapes
from his hoins were marvelous. To further
show his bkill as a bull-fighter, Colonel
Yanez endcavoied to plant two gaudily
colored arrangements of paper and firc
crackcisin either shoulder, but m avoid
ing a charge he stuck both into one
The exploding crackers drove the bull wild
with rage and pain, and it looked fof a time
as though he was going to get even up
with-his tormentors, for, without paying
heed lo the red flags, he charged the clown
w ith such fierceness that it was impossible
to miss the shock, so down he went, and
the bull over him; and but for the presence
of mind of the other men in the ring, who
ran up, and, by Haunting their flags in the
face of the bull, diew him away from the
prostrate man, something serious might
hae occurred. The next move was lo
lasso and thiow the bu'.l and then cinch a
lope lightly around his body, which
sen cd as a hand hold lo one of the fighters
who seated himself astr'de of the bull's
hips. The ropes were taken off and the
animil sprang to his feet. He first tried
to shake the man off its hick, but failing
in that he lushed after the others so fu-
jiouslys tpjhrowjjis rider, andtquipkly
bull was pretty well jaded, ac
familiar by stopping him with Id?
and was rewarded by a sharp kicK that
emptied his bellows of wind. Tha, to
gether with a strained wrist, which made
the clown happy, were the only accidents
of the afternoon.

tioiial story has just come to light.
Anold gentleman named Abraham
Hujl, living in one of tho border
counties, was hunjj, during the re
bellion, by a crowd o twelve men,
because he refused to" volunteer in
behalf of the cause of the soutli. The
lynching vas witnessed by Hall's son,
who was unseen by U.o cro vd.
1 oung Hall, after the departuro of
the lynchers, registered an oath over
his father's dead bodv to hunt down
and kill every one concerned in the ,
lynching. Hall started out in tho
fall of 1S7j to hunt un his father's
ciuiderers. He hunted up, and, in
the course of time, shot and killed
five of the party at different times '
and places. Lafl had a dcsperatO;

lie was puriiiod, fr'enls of tho vie-i
tims joining in the chase. Ho was!
at length run into cover in sight of
his old home, and near where lOyeaisj
before, Ins father had met with a vio
lent death. Here Hall turned on hisS
pursuers, and fought until his bodyJ
was riddled with bullets. His eldest
sister was a horrified soectator cf tiie j
tragedy. Soon after, she met, in a
neighboring town, one of the party
named Davis. Drawing a revolver,
she fired at li'in. He was seriously
wounded, and in the confusion tho
girl escaped. This act alarmed all
who had taken part in tho deah of '
young Hull, aud they resolved on the
extermination of the entire family of1
Hal!s,of whom only three were living, 'J
the eldest girl and two e ers. Uno
night, after Davis' life had been at
