Johnny Behan is from his late illness. rapidly recovering Ninteen inmates in the county jill. Nine are Mexicans. Ramon Corral was elected Vice-Governor of Sonora. Mr. Fitch, of Dos Cabeias, arrived in the city yesterday. The PhenW gold excitement puts the land boom in the shade. The train robbers must have been novices, as they left several thousand .dollars untouched. Lorenzo Torres, the newly elected Governor of Sonora, is a near relative of the present incumbent. The Porter ranch at San Fernando has been sold for 4524,000. The ranch consists of 18,000 acres. The family of V. H. Savage have taken their departure for San Pedro. Savage is practicing law at that place. Nova Scotia wants to join the Yankee brigade. These sterling sons of that rock-bound coast know a good thing when they see it. Sol Barth, one of the old timers of Arizona, and a' very wealthy resident of Apache county, has been sen-tenced-to ten years in the Territorial prison for forgery. The inevitable European war is always to begin "next spring." As this spring is now far advanced, the prophets now mean that it will come off a twelve-month hence. The sensation occasioned in Galena by the rejection of a "nigger" from a hotel dinning room is not apt to become national. The organs will discreetly remember that Galena is in Illinois, not Alabama. Harris, the tailor, has moved his place of business to the building formerly occupied by Capt. Rafferty. He has a complete stock of new summer goods, which he will make up at reasonable rates. Tom Ochiltree's candidate for Presi dent is Roscoe Conkling, and he wants to have him nominated on a Labor ticket, after which he could be indorsed by the Republicans. Mr. Blaine would certainly object to this. In Germany a great success has been made of an attempt to sail a balloon against the wind, but something of this description has been known for some time iu the western states, where real estate booms go right along in spite of storms of protest and warning. The worst has come from the Inter state Commerce bill. Theatrical truupT working its painful way back to New York, has taken passage from Buffalo in a canal boat. The leading juvenile is to take the reins and tow-path, while the heavy villain does duty at the fore, swearing at the mules. It looks very much as though Judge Thurman had about concluded to be a candidate for Governor of Ohio. When an old Roman speaks about saciiticing himself on the altar of his country, if need be, all that is needed is a loud call. As Ohio Democracy is in a bad way this is likely to be forthcoming. Hon. S. R. DeLong, post trader at Fort Bowie, and one of Arizona oldest and most highly respected citizens, arrived in the city yesterday. Mr. DsLong has probably done more to bring Arizona to the notice of the out side, world than any other man in the Territory. His long rdsidenee coupled w'uh his splendid business qualifications has adopted him admirably for the task. The Epitaph is always pleased to wel come Mr. DeLong to our city. Wonderful Discovery at Phenix While Sinking for Water. The City Thrown Into a Fever of Eoit8nt at th9 Discovery. The city was thrown into such a spasm oj excitement yesterday afternoon, as is seldom witnessed in any country, over the discovery of gold in the pumpings from the arteshn well on the pla, in front of the court house. Samuel L. Sanders, an old resident of this place, and a former placer miner of California was at the well being sunk for Artesisn water by Joseph Drew on a contract with the county, and on looking down at the last pumpings, it struck him the gravel was remarkably fine looking pay dirt. With the instinct of the prospector strong upon him, he took up just what sand and grav el he could hold in one hand, and, seizing a wash basin standing near, went to the acequ'u a few steps distant, where he panned it out. When the little dab of sand and gravel was washed to the prop er state, there was a teaspoonful of black and liberally SPECKED WITH GOLD. It was no fool gold, but the bright, shining oro itself, and no prospector's "colors," but course, clean metal. There were at least a doien of the precious pieces, ranging from a pin point up to a pin head in size. He then panned anoth er handful with like success. The sand pump being raised about that time, a por tion of ils contents were emptied directly into a wash basin and taken to the ditch and washed out, when there was more gold in this than either of the others. About this time the news spread, and a crowd began to collect to verify with their own sight of the wonderlul dis covery. When the G izette reporter got on the ground the excitement was so great that steam had been shut off and the ma chinery was at a stand still. The crowd ebbed and flowed to and from the well, an soon the news had extended the whole length of Washingtou street. The esti mates put upon the quantity of gold this pay dirt will yield to the miner's pan var ied from five to TWENTY DOLLAXS. It must be remembered that these es timates were based upon the amount of sand one could grasp with one hand, which would be but a small fraction of the usual pan. As has been said above, this showing did not consist of colors that one would have to examine with a glass to dermine whether it was mica orfilms of metal, but good coarse clean gold such as in diggings in California would have sent people from San Diego to Del Norte as fast as steamers, railways and singes could have sent them along. This dis covery is at a depth of 41 feet from the suiface and how far above the bed rock no one knows. It may be one foot and may be twenty. These facts show the immensity of the discovery, and give a faint idea of the vast wealth that lays buried beneath the Salt river valley. One foot depth of such pay dirt under the court house plaza represents millions of dollars. What is the contracted space of one city block, three hundred feet square compared with the whole valley from the Suocrstition mountains to the Gila river and a breath of 10 to 15 miles? That the whole valley CONTAINS LIKE MATERIAL is evidenced by the fact that wherever -.veils have been sunk water is always found in a similar stratum of course grav el, boulders and quicksand, showing that the subsoil all came fromacommon source Mr. Sanders said to a reporter of the Ga zette, that had he fifty feet square of such aurifierous sand, he would have more money than all Phenix is worth. That there are billions in it, there can be no doubt The question arises in the inquir ing mind as to its source, or origin. This inquiry is answered in this wise; The Salt river and its tributaries have deroded the mountains on thousads of square miles, from the western slope of the White mountains down to the Gila river a distance of hundreds of miles. All these mountains are seamed with Gold-bear ing veins, which, by the eroding power of nature, have been broken into fragments and pnlverised into gravel and sand in their course onward to the sea, and that here in this great basin the preecious metal thus liberated sank toward the bed rock, where it has lain hidden until yes- day. There is but one obstacle to con teed with in mining this great deposit, and that is the water. Phenix Ga- I zette. Bobbers Oomming. Four Mexicican Thieves and murderers are enroute from New Mexico to the Ari z ma border, and Sheriff L nr J of Grant county has notified Sheriff Slaughter of their approach, one of the iiuaiber is wanted bidly furmurdu, 3i;oo reward being offered for his aprehension. All four are desperate characters. A reward is offered for each of them. Sheriff Laird has followed them to Mexico, Texas and back to New Mexico again. He lost the trail nc.ir the borders of our coumy, but he is certain that they are nuking for some portion of Coclvse county. It be hooves every citizens to be on the watch for thsse-fiend-i, they are not only rob ben. but they are murderers as well. Sheriff Slaughter is doing all that man can do to put a stop to the practice of these Mexican outlaws in our county but they are numeious and craft) and it a difficult undertaking, but the strong arm of the law will bring these fiends to a stand btill ere they are many months older. Oobrado Justice In a Colorado murder trial the defense entered a plea of hypnotism. The jury looked wise and there was a general clearing of throats in the audience. Hypnotism was something new and the inference was that it was good. One lawyer for the defense undertook to show how the prisoner came to suffer from hypnotism. He had been hit in the back of the hsad with a club only an hour or two before the murder, and the condition known as hypnotism had re sulted. In this state the defendant had killed the man who used the club on him. The jury piomptly returned a verdict of not guilty, and the plea of hypnotism will hereafter be a sufficient bar to an in dictment in the Centennial State, whether it is produced by a club or otherwise. Arizona don't psrmit.a little thing, like the above, to interfere with the adminis tration of justice. Tho Boycott in San Diego. We understand that an effort is being made to introduce the secret boycott into San Diego. The boycott sccictor open, is a mean, cowardly, dirty, despi cable, un American device. It is the last desperate resort of cowards, the weapon of miserable poltroons. An attempt lo introduce it into San Diego will be swiftly and mercilessly con demned. San Diego Union. The Knights of "Labor" are testing the virtues of the boycott, having turned the cowardly weapon agunst each other. An actor in Boston is "making snoots" at the people of that intellectual center in a perfecily shocking manner. He says that both Charlotte Cushman and Adelaide Neilson told him that Boston didn't know an artist till New York had pointed him or her out. The next thing we know somebody will be saying tnat New York doesn't know a thieving alderman till it gets the tip from Boston. When Mayor Hewitt was asked the other day what he thought of the national administration his reply was that he was too busy to know what he thought of his own administration, thus exhibiting a modesty which does not trouble the aver age organ grinder in the rural districts. Most men feel competent to manage their own affairs and sit in judgement on the rest of the world at the same time. The publishers of the leading news papers of the Southwest met at Kansas City the other day and formerly resolved lo conduct all future business with rail roads on strictly cash basis. They will ask no favors, and of course, they will grant none. Probably the gentlemen would have adopted this policy long be fore their passes were called in if they had thought of it. A distinguished English tourist now in Washington tells a reporter that he was greatly shocked when he learned that the President had shaken hands with Sulli van the pugilist. "At 'ome," he s lid "gentlemen never shake hands with toughs." Perhaps not; but royality does. In England John L. Sullivan would be an honored member of the Prince of Wales set. With provincial legislatures in Canada "censuring" the British Government for not conceding home rule lo Ireland some Tory in the Parliament will feel called upon to insinuate that the Canadians are a lot of murderers and villians. The Do minion will howl for Irish independence if its claims as to the fisheries are not in dorsed in London. Notice.
