J. H. White, suprintendent of the
Contention mine, arrived in Tombstone
yesterday.
The San Palo mine one of the largest

who will move the property to Sonora
within the next two weeks.

house will be ordered moved to
some point near the Sonora line with
the departure of Mr. Wilson. Temb
stone will lose a pleasant gentle
man. Much activity prevails around the work
ings of the Grand Central mine. A new
shaft is being sunk and every thing on
the premises indicates that, that famous
mining property will soon begin opera
tions. Nothing has agitated Washington so
ciety more of lata than the fact that Mr.
Cleveland has had a side door cut in a
theatre for his personal convenience.
What the Democratic party would like
would be a side daor to the Executive
Mansion.
Whilst business is on the upward grade

and sorrows, will bring solace to the

GOLD SEEKEES.
Thousands of Dollars in Gold Unearthed
By a Plow.
A Times special from Fort Worth,
says: "aunaay morning two men urorc
up to the residence of William Tubbs, sr.,
living four miles north of Crawford, and
said they wished to seethe man of the
house, to whom they made the following
disclosure: In 1865 an Indian woman
fearini that she would be plundsred by
Yankee raiders buried an iron vessel
containing $1000 in gold nnder the cor
ner of the house now occupied by Mr.
Tubbs. Upon moving away she thought
it was safest to leav it there, upn her
death bed a short time ago, she revealed
the secret to the two men just spoken of.
For kindness shown her by these parties
she bequeathed to them the buried treas
ure. They requested Mr. Tubbs' per
mission to dig under the honse. They
all proceeded to the house and com
menced to dig at the spot indicated by
the Indian woman. The iron pot was
unearthed and in the vessel was found a
canvas bag containing a large amount of
gld coin, exactly how much Mr. Tubbs
is unable to slate, possibly $1000 or
$1,500. After these facts had been
known Capt. Bewelcy, who lives near
Mr. Tubbs', said that on last Monday
afternoon while plowing in a field, near
the house, he perceived sticking in the
earth a shinning substance, upon picking
it up in proved to be
A $20 GOLD FIECE.
He thought nothing strange of this and
as he ploughed on he found more gold
pieces, and he was so aroused upon the
subject that he called his hired help, Ed.
Carpenter, from anether part of the field.
By nightfall they had succeeded al
together in picking up 282 twenty dollars
gold pieces which amounted to $5,640.
This startling discovery has set that
country afire and every person who owns
as much as ten acres of ground has gone
to digging for geld. Slack Henson, who
was in town Monday, says he found $35
in confederate money in an old boisdare
stump on his place. The next day he
was offered $100 an acre for his place,
but he refused to sell. In 1849 the Ton
kawa Indians sold to the Texas govern
ment a part of their reservation for
$40,000 in gold, as the tribe were en
camped for nine months about where
Capt. Beweley's farm is, it is supposed
that they hid a part or all of this money
were they were, Beweley thinks there is
more money hidden in his field, so he
has posted his entire farm and warns any
and all persons on pain of death not to
come on his place with a shovel or
pick.
Sparks Speaks.
As there has been a great deal of con
tention in relation to the amount of lands
embraced in the San Rafael de la Zanja
land grant, claimed by the Camerons, we
are permitted to publish the following
letter from the Commissioner of the
General Land Office, for the information
of all parties concerned:
Department of the Interior,
GENiRaL Land Office.
Washington, D.C.Jan 15, 1887.
A. M. Bijur, Xsq., Fort Huachuca, Ari
zona: Sir:-1 am in receipt of your letter of
the 2nd instant, relative to the uncon
firmed private land claim in Arizona,
known as "San Rafael de la Zanja" Ho. 9.
In reply I have to say that the only land
now reserved from disposal on account
ef said claim, under the provisions of the
eighth section of the act approved July
2 md, 1854, is the "foursquare leagues"
(or 17.361 acres,) embraced in the
preliminery survey, approved by Sur
veyor General John Wasson, June 11,
1880. There is no copies of said plat of
survey in this office for distribution, but
the Surveyor General at Tucson, or the
District Land officers can inform you
whether the tract in which you are in
terested conflicts in any manner with the
land reserved. Respectfully,
W. A. J. Sparks,
Commissioner.
Bloated Office Holders.
Postmaster L. Davis, of the town of
Solar, Jackson county, III., receives the
very moderate salary of 10 cents a year.
The postmaster of Peck 111., got 30 cents
a year, whila the postmaster of Leai
Ark., got 31 cents. It is said that there
are more than 16,000 postmasters who
receive no more than $40 a year and 10,
000 who receive about eight dollars a
year.
A Nebraska man who placed an ob
struction on a railroad track and caused
'the death of several persons, has been
convicted of murder in the first degree.
This is an example which can be well
followed by other states. The fiend who
plats and plans to destroy life should bo
I made to suffortbt dirt concaquaaca.
Saloon Men.
The saloon man failed to hold their
meeting last evening, but will in all
probability make the third attempt this
evening. It is a very difficult matter to
get this organization together. Some
four ar five members are in earnest and
desire to push their cause but it would
appear that the majority don't care a
cent about the result. If this organization
desire to suceed they must work, and
work hard ifsuccess is to be 6btained.
Some hard work must be done if they
desire or expect to defeat the tax law,
they must all work together, as the pres
ent inactivity of the organization does
not at all reflect credit upon the busi
ness capacity of its members.
County Records.
The following documents were filed
in the County Recorder's office yester
day: Beeds of mines. Timothy Meagher
to Frank Ryan yi Chance mine, Tomb
stane district $500.

Chattle mortgages. Frank E,
Trask to Roger Bros, ten head of
cattle to secure note for $100 and inter
est. Power of attorney. A. T. Jones to
Mrs. Aurelia Jones, general.
Mr. H. A. Tweed one of Tombstone's
formost merchants will open a large store
in Ochoarille in a short time. Mr. Tweed
will undoubtedly do a thriving successful
business at that point, as there is a rapid
ly increasing Sonora trade which will do
the major portion of their business at that
point. A mail route is the great need of
that section, and we hope that the gov
ernment will recognize the wants and
needs of the many settlers along the val
ley and grant them this request. Mr.
Tweed will begin to haul his goods some
time this week.
The Indians on the Squaxin Reserva-,
tion, in Washington Territory, hold a
monthly term of court for the purpose of
adjudicating matters between the Indians
there. The court is composed of three
judges and a clerk,and it has arrived jil
sucu a point 01 uispmc 111 scvciai tuso
that Superintendant Eells, of the Puyall
up Agency, was sent for. A few days
ago Mr, Kells left:Tacoma for tbe reser
vation, where he wjll act as the Supreme
Court, and decide all matters In dispute
in the court below.
The recent riot in the Massachusetts
Penitentiary was caused by the refusal of
the convicts to eat baked beans for their
Saturday supper and Sunday breakfast.
Many years ago the negro slaves on a
Maryland plantation struck because
their master insisted on feeding them
with terrapin, not then esteemed as it now
is. Baked beans are the terrapin of Bos
ton, and it is not strange that the con
tempt with which they are treated by the
convicts has shocked the Back Bay dis
trict profoundly.
George Maxwell and Henry Niles.had
a desperate fight in Leadville, Col., over
a gambling debt. They fought until un
able to longer stand on their feet, then
went to the floor in a dead-lock. They
then began to bite each other, taking
mouthfuls of flesh from the face, nipping
off fingers and noses, until the crowd,
thoroughly sickened, tore them apart and
carried them to their lodgings. Niles
will probably die.
A sweeping order has been issued to
the conductors of the Southern Pacific
Railroad Company preventing any Ind
ians in the future from riding on their
cars. Tha reason for this order is to
prevent the spread of the small pox
should it become an epidemic. This or
der will probably be enforced at all
times in the future.
Sarah Bernhardt's inhuman assault
upon a waiter in New York City is one of
the sensations of the day. She not only
pulled one of his ears out about a foot but
she hit him in the mouth and loosened an
incisor. Worst of all, he submitted pat
iently and limped off in search of a police
man. Almost anybody can thump an
American nowadays.
The man who was knocked down the
other day by Congressman O'Neill of St.
Louis, was the Judge Advocate of the
Knights of Labo'r. The Judge Advocate
was knocked down in his official capa
city, and the Knights, many of whom live
and vote in Mr. O'Neill's district, may
conclude to return the compliment at the
next election.

A loving couple, D. W. Keiley and
Miss Birdie Smith, on matrimony bent,
snowshoed their way over eighteen feet
of snow from Sawtooth to Ketchum,
dragging behind them a toboggan on
which was a trunk and bundles with their
neessary wedding outfit. They took the
train at Ketchum for Blackfoot.
In order te prevent smoking in his
dominions the Sultan of Morocco has or
dered that men who offend shall have
their lips cut off. Several persnts have
been dealt with in this way, and they are
now thoroughly cured,. This cheerful
law giver wauld probably prevent
drinking by choking the offenders to
death.
