Cochise Leads
in Pioneers
Sometimes, when the public speaks.
I is with an enunciation 'scarcely
audible; but when the "pioneer," the
one who held up the torch and
beckoned on a foil iwing that bss
wrested frnm savagery a barren plain,
ventahle wildrnees, and trans
ormd desert ajte into fields of
golden graiu.dutted by orchards ol
tbe rarest fruits, vineyards that iefy
comparison ; the decidious fruits- thsr
rival those of other lands and chal
lenge 'he hemispheres of other lands.
A "look backward" causes to re
flect that tbe "pioneer" should have a
(iUce in tbe history of Arizona True,
there are but a few remaing, of those
nbo builded and enntumated, bur
tbe Prospector, ever watchful, geu
erons and progressive, would accord
credit where credit is due. And in
this connection we are going to state
that Cochise connty bss more pio
neers than all other sections ot Ari
zona. To illustrate, we have among three
of record, Nelon J Riley, wbn can
substantiate bis claim to being one of
tbe oldest pioneers of Arizona. Uncle
Sam Toacbes for all Jhis contentions;
bt was First Sargent, Company E,
Eighth Cavalry, operating over tbe
section now comprising Tombstone,
as far back as 1670;Obiel Oochise and
Nelson J Riley, a non-commissioned
officer, bad manv sanguinary conflicts
Cochise "quit'' and Sargeant Riley
is hale and bearty, to recount the
episodes of earlier days. Riley'a
record from ihe U 8 government shows
him to be tbe pioneer for excellence;
be is, comparatively speaking, a
young man, owning valuable mining
claims in tbe Tombstone mining dis
trict, and it ia not unlikely tbat tbe
pioneer trail blazer will, before the
bngle oa'l of "oot lights," have accu
mulated competence that is dne to
tbe daring and intrepid who came be-
fore and Mid "come on boys."

Heavy Fog
Causes Comment
After almost twelve months 1 1 con
tiouous sunshine, that delightful
brand ol ueather for such & only
Tomb tone is famous the elements
becime freakish this morning and tl e
city and "urrotmdir.g. were enveloped
in a dense fog, the like of which the
old.st-timer fails to recall in this sec
tinn of A'izona Ni r ran tbe nise-.
acres ascrire his phenomenon toother
than ourclo-e proximity to San Diego,
our near approach t the Pac fie ocean
having but recently been consumated
through the gracwutnetsof the Phoe
nix Gazette. The annexation was 'hut
gratuitous tbat the Phospector read
ily accepted tbe dimming gift ae a
water front tor our big state, that ne
might plunge into the surf, view tbe
incoming and outgoing vcstels and be
in closer commercial relations with
the old world, dut we did not an
t c p.te heavy fogs, and here extend
tha k for having vested us aith tbis
queer kind ot atninapher , that rffei
us opportunity or advertiting a more
diversified climate than we have hith
erto been able to do. Some poet has
said, "Too much of a good thing be
come monotonous," so happened with
our perpetual springtime climate of
Tombstone, ne yearned for something
that would give us tbe semblance o'
winter; we haven't quite git it, but
tbe first invoice of "superb weather"
wafted o'er the de-ert from our seaport
at San Dieo is something new to UB,
and we accept it as an innovation that
the old-timer will appreciate.
