A Good Max Gone. A, telegram to Mr.
N. B. Bowers, to-day, announces the death,
by consumption, of his brother, Herbert
Bowers, in San Francisco, Sunday, December
21, aged 51 years. Mr. Jiowcrs was anative

vada City, engaged in a banking business,
He came to Arizona about ten years ago,
and after placer raining on Hassayampa and
Lynx creeks, obtained the appointment of
Sutler at Fort Whipple, which position he
held at the timo of his death.
Sir. Bowers was a member of the Masonic
and Odd-Fellow Lodges in Prescott, and one
of tho most respected members of the com
munity. A pioneer in Northern Arizona ho
was well known. throughout the Territory, and
tho news of his death will occasion profound
regret among his numerous friends throughout
this Territory and in California.
While hundreds, perhaps thousand, of
cattle, sheep, etc., perished in Northern Cali
fornia during the late run of rain and snow,
wo have yet to learn of any of our stock men
suffering loss from our late storms, which have
been severe and almost unJookcd for. Tbo
lact is, Arizona is tne nest siock country in i

Can't say that we aro sorry for Mr. Attor
ney-General Williams. Ho ought to havo
had better luck than to havo been rejected
by the Senate. I5,ut. he can stand tho rejee
tion if the President will only keep him in tho
position of Attorney-.General of the United
oiaies. uut, again, can President urant
stand up against public opinion, and keep Mr.
Williams, now that tho Republic, through its
Senate, has rsjectod him for Chief Justice?
Wa guess not.
One of onr dispatches, yesterday, leads us
to believe that Congress has restored to itself
the privilege of franking, and, wo believe, to

lion's share of tho pralso bestowed on that

is right. We know that the editor is not a
printer, but his size demanded an increase in
the dimensions of tho Sentinel, and after ho
took charge of the concent the expansion of

Mexico could not complain.
Neither does it concern Mexico to know that
Gen Howard did not makcatrcaty in writing with

tact that Cacblso and hi tribe, whllo llrlug on tbo

The only method of avoldlncr tho rcsnonalbilitv
