CITY A0 COIHTY OFFICIAL PAPER
A correspondent in this issue calls at
tention to what he claims is the chid
cause of the prevailing sickness in
Tombstone. There ivoulj seem to be
much weight in the opinion he advances
and the matter should certainly be in
vestigated. Tombstone, from its health)
high position should be a perfect sani
tarium. As it is, deaths have been far
too frequent, of late, for a city of this
Here is an extract from luur columns
of slush in the Eastern papers, descrip
tive of the voyage of Miss Folsom
across the Atlantic: "'The baggage
"which was taken off by the Chandtci
"bst evening-, according to the fourtl
"officer .of the Noorland, consisted of si
"pieces, three trunks, two boxes and a
"willow basket. Two of the former wen
"very large. One was about four feet ir
"length and three feet in height. It had
"a brown covering and brass fastening.
"The other had a gray linen covering.
"There were two large red crosses paint
"ed on them, one on each en 1, and ai
"Engli-h railway label." It would seen
thit Jenkinsism could hardly go anj
further than this.
J. H. Whi.e, ol the Contention mine
arrived list evening from California.
The Epitaph is pleased to see Mi.
White here at this critical period in oui
history, as he is a man of large ex
perience and a whole lot of courage.
The Epitaph expects that, with the as
sistance of Mr. Gage, that order will be
brought out of chaos at least some
thing will be done, and some definite
conclusions will ere long be arrived at.
The men who control the mining propci
ty on the hill are men who do not be
come discouraged at trifles, but will look
this disaster square in the face, and ll
anything can be done to leclaim the
properly, we can rest assured that it will
be done, and done soon too.
The Epitaph, in pummon with our
citizen, is pleased to congratulait
Judge llirnis upon his confirmation ami
we trust that his two associates will !
speedily treated in a like manner. JuHg
Barnes has proven himself to be an able
and a concientious dispenser of justice
and our people are well satisf.cd with his
appointment and confirmation regardless
of politics. Many of the federal appoint
ments made for this territory have been
excellent ones. Our fellow townsman,
W. K. Meade, who received the appoint
ment of U. S. marshal, is a man well
calculated to fill the position with credit
to himself and his party. He has lived
in Cochise county for many years and is
regarded by our people as an able and
honorable gentleman, and why his con
firmation should thus be retarded, is a
matter of surprise and indignation to our
citizens? C. Meyer Zulick and Rouse,
have both received the endorsement of
that body but by some dark political
chicanery his confirmation is refused.
The fight against Mr. Meade comes
through Royal A. Johnson, ex-surveyor
general of this territory and one of his
henchmen named Wolfely who retain
some petty spite against our marshal.
Sen. Teller of Colorado, who should stand
above such despicable demagoueij,
has championed) the cause of those in
dividuals and by his mistaken influence
retards the sanction of the senate from
one of the very best officers in this ter
ritory. Senator Teller, in our opinion,
'could easily find more honorable em
ployment for his services as a United
Slates senator than that which he is at
present engaged in namely, endeavor
ing to avenge a fancied wrong of a dis
appointed office hunter. A few Tucson
ex-territorial officials are making des
peraie efforts to control the politics of
this' territory, and any man who has the
temerity to oppose this immaculate dozen,
will receive their severest condemna
tion. The Epitaph is loyal to the re
publican party and our best endeavors
will bs given for its success. But we
laugh to scorn this gang who have done
more to defeat the republican party of
this territory th in all other causes com
bined. Arizona is largely republican in
politics and ihe party means that i: shall
remain so, but we do not propose to be
subjected to the dictation of a lew disaf
fected office holders from abroad. Im
port your Zulicks and your Rouses from
New Jersey and other foreign sections,
but the people of Arizona will tend to
their cases when their appointed time

DunUN, June 4. A meeting ol Ulster
protcstants held at Dungannon, County

pressing gratitude to Mr. Gladstone, for
success of himself and his Irish measure
and promising to support him in the
event of a dissolution of parliament and

El Paso, June 4. The Rip Grande is
at the worst stage of its annual overflow.
The snow masses in the San Juan moun
tain ranges in southern Colorado are
melting in a body and the consequence
is a fearfully swollen river throughout
New Mexico and western Texas. There
ire two bridges spanning the river at El
Paso, one being used by the Mexican
Central railway and the other by the El
Paso International Street R. R. Co. The
former is so far considered quite secure,
but the latter is in imminent danger of
being -swept away by the raging waters.
A large force of tnt n have been at work

Senate lteslrlelui Hill rncl
Washington, June 4. The Senate
to-day passed the Chinese restriction
bill. The members of the California
delegation are much gratified with the
ucces of the measure in that body.
Representative Morrow said this would
.implify tho question in the House. The
bill, as passed, does not contain the ob
jectionable features with which the
House Committee on Foreign Affairs en
cumbered the measure. He ts confi
dent the House would now pass a bill
in substance in the same shape as that
passed by the Senate. Some of the
provisions contained in the Morrow
House bill are likely to be added in the
latter body, particularly those limiting
the ears of life of the return certificite,
and extending the term of exclusion from
ten to fifteen years.
.Strike nml Immigration.
New York, June 4.' An interesting
feature of the. labor troubles in this coun'
iry is Ihe effect produced upon immigra
lion. The compirison ol the number of
arrivals of steerage passengers at Castle
Garden for the same period in 1885 and
'86 fully illustrates this fact. From Jan
uary 1 tho May 27, 1885, inclusive, there
ware 123,591 immigrants landed, while
for the corresponding time this year
106,241 arrived a decrease of 17,347.
During May, last year, there were regis
tercd S 1,34 1. while for this month the
registry is 34,857, a decrease of 16,484.
During the year immediately preceding
the great panic of 1873 there were 294,
501 immigrants came to this city. The
number in 1874, however, fell to 140,041,
and continued to decrease till 1877, the
year of the railroad riots, when it
reached low water mark, 55,536, the
smallest number of arrivals since 1847.
New York, June 4. A Digby, N. S.,
special to the Commercial Advertiser
says: The police have gone to New
Foundland to watch American fishermen
Yesterday a dispatch was received from
St. ohns to the effect that two American
schooners, heavily armed, were in that
neighborhood, hoisting they would sink
any police boat sent against them. One
is believed to be h New York schooner.
The Dominion fishermen are alarmed
lest jheso Yankee boats may take it into
their heads to practice upon some of
their crafts. The man-of-war Bellerop
lion has been sent to St. Johns to look
these combative Americans up. Captain
Scott, commander in chief of the Cana
dian fishery police, has retired to his
home in New Foundland, and intends
shortly to send in his resignation, being
disgusted with his duties. He will re
sume his old position as chairman of the
Dominion marine board.
