this act to such person or persons, and
for such a price and terms, as they

Two "Epitaph" Correspondents Pay Their
Pti'spixts to the Board of Supervisors.
The following correspondence will
repay perusal by our taxpayers who
tako any interest in the management
of our county affairs:
Babacomatii Ranch. A. T.,)
April 18, 1890. $
Editor Epitaph: Herewith en
closed I send you a communication
from Dr. Goodfellow. which should be
very interesting reading fo every tax
payer in Cochise county. If the whole
county management of a majority of
the Board is similar, in extravagance
and utter di-regaid of the law. to the
way which the doctor has shown us in
his letter they have cared for our
costly county hospital, and it is nat
ural to iuferth.it it i-1, it is not sur
prising that our tax rate last year
reached the significant figures of four
dollars and a quarter of a cent on the
$100 of taxable property. So far as
their own taxes go to show, Messrs.
Coffman and Montgomery have no
property to speak of in Cochise county,
and can take the stage any morning
in Tombstone on short notice and
seek different scenes, where their
financial genius will be'better appre
ciated. But, what about the taxpayer
who will have to suffer for their mis
deeds? I commend their acts to the
care of the Epitaph which I hope will
be fully capable of looking after them.

C. M. Bruck Dear Sir: In re
sponse to your request for informa
tion in icgard to mismanagement of
county affairs, accompanied by flagrant
violation of the laws by those who
were elected and sworn to uphold
them, the following facts may be per
The last legislature passed two bills
one "defining the qualifications of
oliice holders and employees in public
institutions;" the other, a hill provid
ing for the care of the indigent sick.
In open and premeditated defiance of
the first law, the Board of Supervisors
have gone on employing and paying a
Chinaman as cook in the hospital
ever since they were aware of the
illegality of so doing. Whether there
are other illegal employees or not, I
do not know.
The indigent sick bill, is a good one
and, hail its provi-ions been carried
out i CQod. faith. for iluij" tjjnths
it should have been in force, there
would have be-n a naving to .the coun
ty of about $2,000. To demonstrate
this a, retrospective glance is necessary.
Prior to 1885 Cochise county ditl, as
did, and still do, all tliM other counties
of the Territory, in regard to the care
of their indigent sick, advertise for
proposals and let the contract to the
lowest responsible bidder. Whether
ibis is the proper system to follow or
not, is not the quesrion under discus
sion. We are now considering eenn
omy, not philanthrophy. At any rate,
it has worked well and satisfactorily
lor the twenty-five years of our Terri
The average price paid for the care
of the indigent sick, throughout the
Territory barringthis county is $1
per day per patient: Up to 1885, the
price paid in Cochise county never
averaged that figure. With the in
coming of Mr. Theodore White and
Mr. John Montgomery, in 1885, began
the era of mismanagement in county
They concluded that the county
should own and manage its own hos
pital. Accordingly they advertised for
bids for :i building. The contract was
let for about $2,600 but before the
building was finished it had cost about
$7,000, and even then it was incom
plete, subsequent expenditure of two
or three thousand dollars being needed
to make a hospital out of it. After
completion they installed their ''doc
tor," and by ths close of the year the
ho-piial and the care of the indigent
sick, including cost of hospital build
ing, had cost the taxpayers of Cochise
co j nly nearly $14,000; and this with
an average of only ten patients per
day for ten months of the year, which,
as any one can see, made the cost per
patient per day something like $3.50,
as against 95 cents the preceding
year. There has been no year since
thai, and with an average of only
eight, or nine patients per day, that
the care of the indigent sick and the
hospital has cost less than eight thous
and dollars; making a grand total for
the five years of $40,000. Had the old
system been pursued, taking the
average of patients as reported
eight or nine per day the cost would
have'been about $14,500; a difference
of $25,000; $5,000 a year added to the
burdens of the taxpayers of the
county to gratify the whims of Mr.
Theodore White and Mr. John Mont
gomery, the latter especially.
When the present Board of Super
visors became aware last Spring that
there was a law requiring them to act
for the best interests of the county,
they entered into a conspiracy to
nullify it, find lmve evadsd it up to
the present time, and in so doing have
added about $2,000 unnecessarily to
the county indebtedness.
Instead of complying with the law
at once, they delayed for a month,
then advertised as required: They
did not, as is customary, call for bonds
to accompany the bills. Two bills
were put in one (a straw bid, antl
they knew it), for fort" cents per day
per patient, accompanied by no bond ;
I he other for one dollar and twenty
fit e cents per day, which was accom
panied by a perfected bond for the
statutory amount. The award was
made to the lowest bidder and ten
lays given in whidi to file a bond.
No bond was filed until two days after
the expiration of the time granted.
Then the contention was that another
bond ought to be required, so thirty
days further extension of lime was
allowed. In the meanwhile the Court
Commissioner granted an injunction
restraining the Board from acting un
der the law. This was vacated with
out even an attempt to defend it when
Judge Barnes came to hear the case,
thus demonstrating cotfclusively the
conspiracy which had been entered
into. Since that time the Board has
done nothing, and, so far as it is pos
sible to tell, intends to do nothing
until compelled. Whether it can con
tinue this course indefinitely remains
to be tested.
Had the Board acted in good faith,
and awarded the contract to the
lowest "responsible" bidder, the cost
of maintaining the indigent tick for
the seven months ending December
31, 1889, instead of being about $4,500,
would have been about $2,000 a differ
enceof about$2,500 added to thecounty
debt to gratify Mr. Coffman and Mr.
Montgomery, neither of whom are in
To a "man up a tree," the actions
of the Board seem to indicate what is
called "malfeasance in office" a mis
demeanor or felony according to the
gravity of the offense.
If I have not made this affair and
its consequences perfectly clear to
you, I shall be glad to supply you
with other data and corroborative
evidence which will be conclusive,
even to the most skeptical.
Very truly yours,
Tombstone, January 2, 1890.
P. S. Since writing the foregoing

county affairs. .In itwaa auoid tha.

cost for the nine months only of 1889
to October lt, had been $5,400. which,
with a quarter yet to be added, would
have made the amount over $7,000 for
the year 1889. Vide grand jury re
portsJ Since the first writing also, the
Board have again gone through the
farce of receiving bids for the care of
indigent sick. This time they were
compelled to award the contract to a
responsible bidder but imposed such
extra legal conditions in the contract
that the successful bidder declined to
sign it and hospital affairs are in
From the report of the Pima county
Board of Supervisors, the cost of
maintaining the county hospital of
that county for 1889 was $3,888, with
an average of fourteen or fifteen pa
tients; less than half the cost of that
of Cochise county, and with double
the number of patients.
The taxpayers of Cochise county
have much for which to thank their
Board of Supervisors. As matters now
stand property is virtually confiscated,

J. H. Vellon,an old miner and pros
pector of this county, came into our
office Sunday, with a pair of sandals,
made from the Spanish dagger, which
ho had found in a room of :ho cave
dwellers, 12 miles northeast of Clifton,
at Sunset Peak. Mr. Velton also had
specimens of crystalized lime, which
he had broken from the ceiling of one
of the rooms. The delicate, frosty
formation was indisputable evidence
of the ags it required to complete
the beautiful straw-colored specimens
ho has secured from these rooms. If
these sandals were made and worn by
the cave dwellers, the material from
wnich they were made is sufficient
evidence to us that- it is the most last
ing known. We have miles of this
.Spanish dagger growing upon our
plains and mountaintops that has
been considered worthless. Mr. Velton

FODJD 05 THE DESERT.
A Strange Winged Monster Discovered and
Killed on tlie Unachnea Desert.
A winged monster, resembling a huge
all gaior with an extremely elongated
t til and an immense pair of wings, was
found on the desert betwetn the Whet
stone and Huachuca mountains last Sun
day by two ranchers who were returning
home from the Huachucas. The creat
ure was evidently greadv exhausted by a
long fl ght and when discovered wa able
'o fly but a short distance at a time.
After the first sho-;k of w:ld amaz-ment
na t passed the two men, who were on
horseback and armed with Winchester
r.fles, regained suffi. ient courage to pur
sue the monster and after an exciting
chase of several miles succeeded in
ietung near enough to open fire wi h
heir rifles and wour d ng it. The creat
u.e then turned on the men, but owinj;
n iis exhausttd condition ihey were able
to ke-p out of its way and after a fe
ell duected shots the monster parti)
to led over and remained motionless.
The men cautiously approached, their
hvirses snorting with terror, and found
that the creature was dead. They then
proceeded to make an examination and
found that it measured about ninety-two
feet in length and the greatest dUmetet
was about fifty inches. The monster had
only two feet, these being situated a
short distance in front of where tht
wings were joined to the body. The
head, as near as they could judge, was
about eight feet long, the jiws being
thickly set with strong, sharp teeth. Its
e es were as large as a dinner plate and
protruded about ha!f way from the head.
They had some difficulty in measuring
the wings as they were partly folded
under the body, but finally got one
straightened out sufficiently to get a
measurement of seventy-eight feet, mak
ing the total length from tip to tip about
160 feet. The wings were composed of
a thick and nearly transparent mem
brane and were devoid of feathers or
hair, as was the entire body. The skin
of the body was comparatively smooth
and easily penetrated by a bullet. The
men cut off a small portion of the tip ot
one wing and took it home with them.
Late last night one of them arrived in
this city for supplies and to make the
necessary preparations to skin the creat
ure, when the hide will be seat east for
examination by the eminent scientists ol
the day. The finder returned early this

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better

and before it has become settled in th

the cold and greatly lessen :ts severit)
if not effectually cu-e the ol I in two
day- time, and it is the only remedy that
will do this. It acts in perfect harmonj

the lungs, opening the secretions, lique

.restoring the s stein to a strong anrt
healthy condition. No other remedy in

properties. No other will cure a cold as
quickly or leave the system in as seund

with Wm. Lyle and wife and Hank

them was, that they expressed them
