That poiilou of tho Giand Jury rcpoit
yet unfiled, is still occupying a prominent
place in the minds and thoughts of the
people. It was expected that Mr. Carr
would promptly file tho npoit, when ho
learned of tho almost unanimous detnund
made for it by tho people of this city. So
far however, ho has lulled to do so, anil
from tho present appearances it looks as
though he Intended taking tho bit between
his teeth and making a btcak that himself
and friends would long be sory for..
Yestciday a gentleman in this city receiv
ed a letter liom the late foreman of the
grand jury, ftoin which wo arc ucrmittted
to tako tho following exttacl:
"I did fail to file or hand into the coiut a
committee report, and I shall hand it to
tho court at tho proper time, but certainly
shall tako no advice as to mv actions in
tho matter, from any one. I
think I know my duty in the matter fully
as well as some of my would-be advisors."

Carr intends to fteczo on ta the document
for some timo longer.
In order to keep abreast of the popular
demand for information concerning that
famous Grand Jury report, an Epitaph
reporter girded on his interviewing armor
yesterday and tackled Mr. Alexander
Wight, n member of tho late Grand Jury.
Meeting Mr. AViolit at Hart's cun shop.
tho reporter sung out : Mr. Wight, might
you nave a copy oi mo uranu jury
report on tho Recorder and Court Clerk's
ofliccs in your pocket ? If so, you will
oblige me by letting uie hayc a look at it
for a lew moments.
Mr. Wight I am just as anxious as
you nro to see that lcport. I was chair
man of tho commlttco that investigated the
offices named, and turned over tuo report
of tho committee to Mr. L. W. Carr, the
foreman of tho Grand Jury, and have not
seen it since.
RuronTEii Do you know the substance
of tho report?
Mr. W. Yes, sir; it was very favorable
to Mr. Jones, the Recorder. His office
was found to bo conducted on business
principles; his books kept In good shape,
and everything properly arranged. The
Clerk's olllco was found to bo exactly the
contrary, and extortionate fees charged in
every instance. Tho committee examined
six lawyers, and all of them swore to pay
ing outrageous fees, and it was our opinion
that n thorough, systematic investigation
snouici 03 niauo anu mo uicric mulcted.
R. Had you any conversation with Mr.
Carr on the subject?
Mr. W. Yes, sir j I. requested to be
sworn aud examined myself, as I could
testify to paying extortionate fees j but Carr
showed that ho had -a job put up 'with
Seamans, for he said that the latter ex
plained away that matter.
R. Then, why didn't tho grand jury
tako hold of tho matter bodily; Jho fore
man counted but ono?
Mr. ". It was understood by tho grand
Jury that a report should bo mado to the
Court calling tor the removal of Scamnns,
and on that condition we let tho matter
drop. Wo thought if bo was regularly
indicted ho would J'reczo on to tho ofllco
for several months more and rako in many
more dollars that he was not legally en
titled to. Under these circumstances,
when Carr suggested calling on tho Court
for his immediate removal, without indict
ment, we thought it better to let it go that
R. Had you any communication with
Mr. Catr since? . .
Mr. W. Yes; I wrote to him for the,
report a few days ago, aud ho said he
could not give it, but would send' me a
cony, I am, therefore, expecting a copy
dally, and when it comes I will let you
R. Is that all you know about tho
Mr. W. That is all. Good evening.

Lieutenant Sleever and a smtll detach

through heie about ten o'clock this morn
ing, on their return to camp near Sheldon's
ranch, which they would reach eaily this
afternoon, Lieutenant Steevcr was accom
panied on his trip by Mr. Bglauf, of tins
placo. Tho Lieutenant's object was to ex
plore tbo Swisshelm mountains, principal
ly with reference to the locatlqn of water,
and also to look out for Indian trills. His
naity marched across Sulphur Spring val
ley, but could find no water there, the first
day's march therefore terminating at Silver
creek, which, Mr. Eglauf informs us, has
much more water this ycarthan last, its
distauco from Bisbce being about thiity
elght miles. From there Lieut. Sleever
went to San Reniardino; thence lo Stnd
Springs, wheio tho water is low; thence to
Solomon's Springs, aud back to Bisbee.
By tho lime of bis return he will have
traveled between 130 and 1-10 miles. Mr.
Bglauf was surprised to find no water in
tho tanks along tho drainago Hue of the
Sulphur Spring valley; but It was found
Hint tho recent rains had bceu iu the foot
hills of both the Mule Pass and the Swiss
helm mountains, but none in tho middle of
the valley whero the water could collect
had the lain fallen.

Editok EriTAni: Please allow me to
make known a few fads through your
valuable paper, which it is hoped will
provo beneficial to your many readers.
What I wish to say is this: I came to this
placo very sick about two months ago, and
with my sickness I was also afllicted with
the piles, and have been so afllicted for ten
years past; and tho loss ot blood caused by
tho latter and thcexcrutiatiug pain charac
teristic of tho former disease, were so great
that I became so weak that 1 could scarce
ly get about. I have becu troubled with
piles more or less for ten vcais, as beioto
stated, giowing worse and woioe all tlie
time, aud have bceupionouuced incurable
by several prominent physicians within
the last teu years, unless the knile or liga
ture wcie lesorted to. Eut through the
advice of a friend I applied to
Dr. CV P. V. Watson, of this city,
for Ueatmcnt. He took my case, say
iug he could straighten me up
all right, and lemove the piles without the
use of the knife or ligature. So he went
to woik, and I am proud to say that I am
a well tnau. I make tills statement be
cause it is a fact, and in making it I feel
that it will bo a matter of as much inteiest
to the unfortunate sufferers of this commu
nity as bis treatment has been to me. II 1
can be able to point out to even one poor
sull'ciei1 the tree that will produce the lruit
that will relieve his pains, I will be amply
paid for making these truths known. My
sympathies for tlie suffering are the only
incentive winch prompts me lo ask this

Dihtou Ei'iTAi'ii : I sec iu your paper a
c.rd from Mr. Garrett, stating that there is
somo mistako about tho challenge to fight
any Cornishman in Tombstone. I wish
to state to the public how this challenge
originated: Two days after the light be
tween Art Charlis and Bob Small, a party
ormtneis were discussing the matter of
the recent fight and ono of the parly stated
that Jim Garrett had declared at tlto Grand
Central mine that he had a man that could
beat any Cornishman in Tombstone. I
thought it was a bold challenge and I told
tho parly to inform Mr. Garrett to put up
his money and I would find a man to fight
him " Yours, respectfully,

The House, iu Committee of the
Whole, devoted the entire day to a
general debate on the bill to reduce
the internal revenue taxation. More
than a dozen speeches were made by
as many members- Little of general
interest was manifested. Most of
the members have already made up
their minds how they will vote on the
different propositions involved in
the bill and other propositions which
it is proposed to add.
The Democratic caucus to-night on
the question of party action on the
internal revenue bill was of no prac
ticable benefit to the party. There
was apparently too much division of
opinion in the Democratic ranks. A
fight may be made to secure the
adoption of certain amendments lo
the bill, so as to make campaign ma
terial, but the bill will secure a large
number of Democratic votes; enough
to pass it by a good majority.
Washington, June 22. The Sen
ate proceeded to dispose of the
amendments to the banking bill
without debate, pending a propo
sition offered by Morgan, which was
rejected, 17 to 21, a party vote, ex
cept that of Jonos of Nevada, who
voted Tiye with the Democrats, and
Hampton, who voted no with the
Republicans., Davis of Illinois voted
no. Vest's substitute directing the
