The different candidates are now
preparing to visit the different towns
throughout Cochise county and see
personally the voters. The Tomb
stone is of the opinion that the Re
publican candidates will make the
most favorable impression of the two,
in the different towns that they vis
it. The chemist who made the analysis
of the different waters of the city,
says that the water of the City Water
Works is "hard" aud will "scale boil
ers rapidly." It does not require a
chemist to see that the City Water
Co's-watcr is the sofest, and in regard
to scale forming in boilers from this
water Ihu can easily be ascertained
from any of the engineers who has
worked at Watervale. The truth of
the matter is boilers are freer from
scale whou using the city water than
-n other water in the camp.

The youup ladies in the upper erust
of society of New York have got an
other craze. A Jittle while ago it was
English pug dogs, then it was St. Ber
nards, then ponies. Now tl e ponies
are for sale cheap; their day is past,
And what takes their plaeeJ Why
burrcs. Not the little, ugly, awkwark
ungainly, slow, stupid, roelancholly
Mexican burrol Yes, just that on
ly ha and nothing more, Every dog
has his day, and perhaps burros have
too. Anyway this is burro clay in
New York. At the sea shore and in
the parks you see burros bearing fair
burJens or drawing $5,0C0 turnouts.
And if this fashionable craze has the
sami effect on the price of burros that
it had on the price cf pug dogs, St.
Bernards and ponies, a burro will be
worth $500 laid down in New York.
Here is a chance for a big speculation
for somebody. Buy the burros for
10 in Chihuahua or Durang, put forty
of them in a car ai d place them in
New Yorlc at a cost of 30. Then
sell out the carload for $500 each,
and clear over 18,000 on the consign
ment The higher the prices asked
tile mora the craze will boom. The
surest way to kill it is to sell burros
cheap. Good burro! You are worth
500 and more in good society. We
always did have a profound respect
for you, burro, though it U possible
we never mentioned it before. Ex

the nature of an open revolt against

nell, took place yesterday at the meet
ing of the Twentieth Ward Branch.
It aro?e hi course of a citcussion as
to whether the branch should respond
to the circular issued by Parnell to
Pre-ideut Fitzgerald of the Irish
National League. The Chairman said
not one penny more of my money
shall go to the Anti-Eviction Fund
or to any farm of Parliamentary agi
tation. We want an accounting for
the millicn and more dellars that
have gone into the treasury of the
League from this country, before
sinking any money. It is not long
since I was in Ireland, and I can
safely say that in many of the west
ern and "southwestern counties, the
unfortunate peeplo who took advice
of the League and allowed themselves
to be evicted, met with no support at
all fronr the League while some el"
the gang and members of Parliament
from Ireland could drive about
Dublin in state, living upon money
we sent over." Several other speakers
spoke in the same strain.

Washington, Oct. 5. It is stated
officially at the War Department that
nothing has been determined upon in
regard to the surrender of Geronimo,
and that the department is still lack
ing information on which to base auy
action. General Miles' want of frank
ne?K hi avowing that ho had granted
liberal terms to the captives is se-.
verely criticised. It is now under
stood'that.tho instructions' given to
General Crook not to accept the 'sur
render of the Apaclui unless they
came in without conditions "were
transmitted to Geuerai Miles ior his
inforniation -and guidance. These
instructions were inspired by the de
sire of the President to undertake a
new policy of dealing with the rene
gade Indian marauders, which policy
contemplated their trial by civil.courts
and prompt punishment for crimes
they had committed. A requisition,
it is understood, has already been
made by the Governor of Arizona up
on the Governor of Texas for the
surrender of Gcronimo for trial, but
under the terms of the surrender the
President cannot permit the chief to
be surrendered to either of the Gov
ernors. General Miles has defenders
among the authorities as well as crit
ics, and it is urged in justification of
his course that it is better to have
possession of the Indians even if the
opportunity of making an example of
them deters others from following in
their footsteps be lest than to permit
them to go on indefinitely in their
course of murder and destruction.
