SAm?ORD, GRAHAM As It la According; to One of The liest Teachors ol Tho County. Much has been said in condemnation of tho now apportionment law, becauso upon its faco it appears to favor tho smaller districts and cripples tho larger ones; at least this is tho viow many tako of it, and according to a recent articlo an tho Jhtlhtin, it too, holds this viow. Tho ono crcat purposo of Till law is to onforeo iusticc. And whon lho School Superintendents of tho various counties lot fall tho hoavy hammer of justice, this unjustly condemned law will result in tho "greatest good to tho greatest number." Tho law does not say tho Superintendent shall Jirst 400 to districts having more than 10 and less than 20 census children, and 500 to districts having inoro than 20 children. 'Tho word Jiist docs not appear. But in connection with the above apportioning ho must apportion not loss than 20 per capita to all districts having an average attendance of moro than 25 children. "We hold that at the fir3t apportionment to be mado undor tho now law tho Superintendent must ascortain tho percent of said apportionment duo tho $400 and 500 districts and at tho samo timo to ascortain tho percent duo tho districts entitled to tho 20 per capita and apportion to each their respective amount undor tho three di visions. And so on with each apportionment during tho school It will depend upon tho amount levied by tho Bosrd of Supervisors for school purposes whether or not tho smaller districts will receive their 100. For if the 820 per capita is not reached neither will tho 400 nor tho 500 be reached. Tho number of census children will cut no liguro in tho apportionment undor tho now law, and that will result in much good, for undor tho old law moneys wore unfairly uiviueu. oomo districts in our county could and did pay 80 and 90 per month to their teachers, maintained school for nino months, and then had hundreds of dollars surplus in their district fund. "While othor and just as desorving districts practicing the strictest economy could only pay 40 per month to thoir teachers, maintained school not longer than six months and close, with no surplus whatever. Tho Bulletin suggests that the larger districts divido, and create a multitude ot small ones. We ask what cood will result from this? Truly if tli3 districts followed this advice, "general confusion" would bo tho result." Lot us examine tho lawupon tho proposition of dividing, Chapter Vll bee. 41 of tho School law roads: "No now district can bo formed un less tho parents or guardians of at least ten school census children, of such proposed now district, and residing at a greater distanco than two miles from any district bchool house, present a petition &c." This law will prevent tho "geneial confusion" that othcrwjso might have taken place among our school districts. The only fault, and this is a serious ono, wo find with tho new law is subdivision four. It reads: "All school monoys romainining on hand at tho ond of tho school year, to tho credit of any district or in tho rciorvo fund after making the appoitionmenl as beforo required, shall revert to tho general school fund of tho county." This law will encourago extravagance among the trustees, for each Board will see to it that thero is no rovertablo money to the credit of their district at the end of the school year. With this portion rcpealod wo do not hesitate to pronounce the now law a good one for Graham Co. A Tkachku. Ice Cream ami Mnur berry l'oitltal. Tho Willing Workers of tho M.

Ho had completely recovered from tho small pox and was leady to start homo Monday but changed his mind on account of being weak. Ho had bought his tickot, which with tho balanco of his effects is in my possession, subject to your orders. What caused his death was an ulscration of tho tonsils and glands of tho neck and a very bad state of tho stomach. Everything was done that cnuld bo tor his re lief but to no avail, and every person is filled with grief and sympathy for you and his mother. Frank expended all .his money oxcept 1.30 for railroad ticket and other necessary expenses, and knowing you as I do, I took tho liborly of defraying tho funeral expenses myself, which amount to 35, and had him buried in a way I know you would desire.

Mining men, this is your chance. Take advantago of it and securo tho mill. It will be tho means of developing the mines and making monoy for the miners and mino owners at tho samo timo. Thero is no question but that tho mines over thero will produco many times 50 tons of oro per day, thereforo thero is no reason why tho mill should not be erected. - , A Correction. w II. C. Layton writes us from Ft. Thomas that in our statement last weok that tho mails wero detained in Globe 24 hours longer than thoy ought to bo on account of tho change in tho schedual, wo wero in error, and that tho facts aro as follows: When tho G. V. G. & N. changed thoir schedual between Bowio and Thomas it throw the mail tooi lato to connect with our stago at Pima. Honco mail would have to lay ovor thoro about 22 hours and by order of P. O. Supt. Flint I mado arrangements with tho railroad to carry tho mail from Pima to Thomas and leaving Thomas at G o'clock a. m. put tho mail into Globo 13 hours earlier than it would get thero if I run on my schedual time, and tho mails coming out of Globe leave there 11 hours behind tho schedual timo, hut it connects with tho same train as it would if I left there on time. By this means the mails aro not detained at all, they simply lay over at Globo 11 hours instead of laying over at Pima 15 hours. Fencing; the Square. Dr. Wightman informs us that the people of Pima are, putting a good substantial fence around tho public square. Thoy also intend to plant a grovo of shade trees on tho samo, leaving just enough opon space for a ball ground, and as soon as possible pipe tho water from Cluffs ranch which has been dovelopod through the tunnel system, to Pima and havo a fountain on tho square.

HIS INHERITANCE A DELUSION. Monlhon, of Plicnlx, Tells Some Interesting Talcs About .Jlminic lteavlos. Following will bo found tho gist of the tcstimonoy of Mayor Moni hon, of Phcnix, and James Addi son Peraltaicavis in t!io famous land grant case, which is hero on account of the grant covering the whole of tho Gila valley: Ex-Mayor James D. Monihon, of Phonix, testified in tho Peralta land grant case on Juno 13th. Ho told how Dr. Willing had come to in the sixties, and had tried to sell him a half-interest in tho Peralta grant. Willing told Mr. Monihon it was a floating grant nnd proposed that thoy go in and locato it in such a way as to bleed tho mining companies. Mr. Monihon said ho told Willing it was pretty bad business trying to got tho people's homes away fiom them in that way, and refused to havo anything to do with the project. Ho warned Willing to drop it. Some year3 later Reavis came to Phonix as correspondent of aan jbrancisco papers and Mr. Monihon took him in hand and showed him tho Salt River valley. Thoy drovo about for several hours until thoy camo to a place which prompted Reavis to say: "This is just what I havo been looking for?" Then Reavis said ho know where thoro was a floating grant. Ho told Monihon ho believed ho would locato his grant over tho valley. He said ho was going to Prcscott to get the papers irom ur. willing. Some years afterwards Mr. met Reavis on a train coming out of St. Louis. Reavis, dressed so finely in broadcloth and a high hat, that Mr. Monihon took him for a preacher. Reavis told Mr. Moni; hon on that occasion that gjio iliad changed tho, boundaries, of jho grant tcavoid "the PJichix ' Canal company wmch'waslUb strong for hiuifr !. ' riEAAUSTAKES THE STAND. Reavis" took tho stand in a very smiling, insinuating way, bogged pardon of tho court for not addressing himself constantly to them, oxplaimng in his Chesterfield way that ho niont no discourtesy, etc. Beforo ho had been on tho stand two hours ho found that Attornoy Matt. Reynolds had him a snort ing, cornered witness. Still at noon timo, ho, passed away tho recess by telling aniusing stories, to show his perfect possession of calm unruffled feelings, 'but "when" he again took tho witness stand "it? was observable that ho lacked tlio confidence of tho morninsr. Tho most important admissions of the day wero that tho reason ho mado the search abroad for further docu ments and papers was that he mado up hi3 mind that there must be further evidence. When pushed by Roynolds as to whether it was not the report of Survoyor General Johnson that had been his real educator and started his now departure, he answered that he and his attorneys realized that tho man who wrote that report know Span ish law and ho had got to comply with it, that ho had faith ho would find the ai chives all right. Later in tho day ho confessed ho lost faith in this claim about 1883, that is in tho claim ho presented through the "Willing deed; that ho even then know of his wife's existence, and behoved she had a title. Still ho afterwards admitted that ho pressed tho claim of himself until 1887. Admission after admission was forced out of him. He finally told about the burning of two railroad depots in Spain to destro3' his valuable evidence, which fortunately miraculously escaped, and he intimated to tho court that ho thought Surveyor-General Johnson could possibh' enlighten them on tho subject. His testimony was bitter when ho reached Johnson and Monihon. Ho was never a correspondent for the Alta California; remembered that ho drovo in sight of the junction of tho Gila and Colorado rivers on ono of his trips with Monihon, but did bo moro for tho purposo of following up an irrigation ditch in which thoy were driving than to seo the junction of the rivers. Ho further stated that during all his trips to that country, although writing for newspapers he was in reality looking over this property. He, however, would not admit that he was doing so for (ho purpose of locating tho grant. He also denied thatfho hadjStated toMonilion that and.was KOingttollooato.itnnithatvwlloyaiSli MM BUI Til HTsi.Ti in. - ter - ' UnaliejhiidLchanycdithoSi?RdiRl ESTABLISHED 189 of this grant so it would eteht miles further south. tinuing ho said: "The changes which tho attornoy referred to are tho changes, I guess, in tho vcriom' petitions I havo filed for this grant and thoy will explain "themselves. Tho grant, from my standpoint originated upon established meaa urements, which existed long my conception, therefore ray concoptibn could not enter fnto or chango them in the least. This is all very amusing. Mr. Churchill, Royal A. Johnson and otacr distinguished Arizonains were very. mnrli infrdvarrl in tinvitiir ilin mvint .'IVW . Of lnnnl.fl 4t.n if ...n.,1,1 ,t - J S&- fero with some of their important interests. I merely slated that whatever location tho government, mado I would acquicseo in, and the location as formerly made was practically by tho government, although Gv. Powers contended lho . center should bo in the center of tho Gila liver and Mr. Hopkins agreed with him, and at first I placed tho location where thcythought it should be." ? .MONEY HE HAS PAID. a T Ho said that tho amount bt.lf? money which he had secured from jtr ; corporations upon tho grant for p leases and quit claims was 05,000; ,. he also received 5,000 from the Case Grand Land & Improvement Company of Now Jersey; l,O0D from the Cas'a Grando Land and Ira, provement Company of Wyoming; 30, 000 ofthoCasaGrando'Land & Improvement Company of Arizona. Jlo also admitted that he got 825,-000 from tho Silver King mino for a iclcaso and that tho Southern Pacific railroad paid him 50,000 for a riglj't of way. Ho also said that ho was at ono timo in tho cm-ploy of tho Southern Pacific Company in the law department. Ho also testified that ho had an agroemont with Mr. Collins of San'( J5 rancisco, to mrnish mm moneyv; wnenevcr no couia, ior which he W was to take an interest in this grant as security; that ho received 500 a month while in Europe; that ha va3 thoro over twclvo months, that while thore Mr, Mackoy paid him 5,000 a year and that ho received from Rosencranes of San Francisco, about 5,000. Jjfnitcd States Attorney Roynolds askYd hjiri what ho had done with mis $iou,yuu which ho had secured from theso companies. He that ho had lived on it and spent about 2,uuu making surveys, and upon being prdssod closely, ho ad-, nutted that ho had used the greater portion of it in perfecting his title to this property. Ho was then asked why he had entered water claims under the - public land law of tho' United States whiioTieTiad Tvhaflie o!aifflrv. ed to bo a perfoct grant to the property, and he answered that he had never thought much of the grant anyway. It was tho water ho was after. NOT A LOVER OF MONEY, '"I am not a lover of money, said Mr. Reavis, "but I am a lover of development and building up of the country and I went to Arizona with the idea of building up the country and establishing a colony there. Tho water rights which I established belonged exclusively to myself, and in establishing this' colony we received very small compensation for thot land, usually -about 12 1-2 cents an acre, and tire water right varied from 5 to JB an acre, according to tho location."
