ArfnJ MTY AID COIMTY OFFICIAL PAPER A Chicago paper publishes a report of the agent of syndicate of Americans searching for gold in Honduras, Central America. The new placers are said to yield from ten to eighty cents to the pan. There is likely to be a stampede to the diggings. In view of the number of past failures attending similar expeditions, miners .will do well to pause before they rush for the new El Dorado. It seems that the wonderful Comstoclc lode is not yet played out. The finding of good ore at a depth of 3,100 feet, in the Hale and Norcross, has enc luraged other companies to resume sinking, and two shafts are to be continued to the great depth of 3,300 feet. Large bodies of ore in the upper levels, hitherto deemed too low grade to pay, are now about to be worked by cheaper methods, and the immense piles of tailings which have accumulated will be utilited by means of concentrators. - 0 .. ,Our San Francisco .exchanges use very vigorous language in relation to the at tack by the Mexican guerrillas on Capt. Crawford. The Examiner says : "These repeated misconceptions have grown monotonous, and it is time to put an end to them. If the Mexican mountains are to be made a harbor of refuge for hostile Apaches, and when American troops cross the line in pursiit they are to be assailed by Mexicans, it is time that the country which is so conveniently utilized as a lair for savages and banditti should pass into other hands and be subjected to more civilized control. It is not the Rio Grande, but the summit of the main range of the Sierra Madre, which is the natural boundary between the two coun tries, anyway." Now that several of the territories are applicants for statehood, anything that throws light on their political complexion is of interest. The Chicago Inter Ocean has compiled a table, showing the num ber of votes cast by each of the territories at the last election : Rep. Arizona 6,820 Dakota 71,579 Idaho 5,702 Montana 13.385 New Mexico.... 9.930 Utah 2,215 Washington . . . 20,847 Wyoming 7,225 Dem 5.671 15.124 6488 13.584 12,271 21,120 20,995 5.59 Scat'mg. .""61 5.92 Five of these territories, namely, Da kota, Montana, Washington, New Mex ico, and Utah are entitled to admission as states on the score of population. Quite a number of Tombstone people re the unfortunate ewners of stock in the Quijotoa mines and many of them are hesitating whether to pay the assess ment, which will shortly be due. To such, we would say emphatically, "Dont!" Whatever money you can obtain for your stock, if it is only five cents a share, is so much gained, while any sum paid for assessments is good money thrown away after bad. It is a well established fact, that there is no ore in these mines below twenty feet from the surface. The work of running an 800 foot tunuel 1,000 feet deep in tough porphy rock, is simply an excuse to levy assessments, for a year or two more.' The bonanza company sold out their interest in these mines some time ago, so that, in face of the utter distrust with which the present controllers of the mines are regarded in San Francisco, it will be impossible to engineer even a temporary boom. We, theretore, advise all holders of this stock to seil and write off their losses to exper ience account. A Washington telegram published in yesterday's Epitaph announced the framing of an important bill in relation to the public lands, repealing the timber culture and pre-emption laws and amend ing the desert land act. It is high time that congress should take some step to wards the protection of that birthright of every American citizen the public lands. What with fraudulent Spanish trrants, railroad grants and the immense unused tracts held for speculative pur poses by foreign syndicates, there is very little available agricultural land left for the settler. One authority says there is nut more than is likely to be taken up within six months at the ordinary rate of entry. Our public lands should be most jealously guarded. Once they are gone we shall drift into a community of ten ants and big landlords on the European plan. Commissioner Sparks is doing ' nohlr work for the bona fide settlers of this country, and his actions should be sustained by all honest men, regardless of party. I TELEGRAPHIC.

Spiciil to tbe EpiTini.l Tucson, Feb. 2. This afternoon a man named Flanagan entered the wait ing room at the depot in an intoxicated condition, and threw down a sack with sufficient force to discharge a pistol that was inside. The bullet passed through the leg of Tom Wayburn, and made a bad flesh wound in the side of Mr. La mont. Neither of the wounds is con sidered dangerous.

A special to the Tribune-Republican from Cheyenne says: Governor Warren transmitted to-day to the legislature a communication from the secretary of the interior, showing the enormous expense that was incurred by the Arizona legislature in creating offi cials for that body. The l-st includes fifty clerks. It is evident that the Wy oming legislature will not need such a wdining, as it is a remarkably econom ical body. It has refused, 10 far, to take any newspapers, it has no cgmmittee clerks and no unnecessary officials. The legislature adjourned until Monday. Horn AntNI'lilnrHf Work. lpccM to till! Kl'ITAl'U. San Francisco, Feb. 2. An anti Chinese meeting Mas held last night at St. Helena, and the cit'zens will hold a mass meeting to-day and procession to Chinatown, when the Mongolians will be ordered to leave in ten days. The conservative element of the community are against hasty actions on the subject, and trouble is feared. A lartre number of Chinese arrived from Sonoma recently, and many are engaged in vineyard nork, now under full headway. The citizens of Gold Run have notified the Chinese to depart. The last one went yesterday, leaving Gold Run entire ly free from Chinese. """" "" Urant'H Hook New York, February 2.
