OFFICIAL PAPER OP COOHI8B COUHTT
The sixth auditor recently made a
demand upon the Civil Service Com
mission for some thirty clerks, where
upon the Civil Service managers sent
this old Democratic war horse eighty.
I. .seven names from which to choose from,
is that the eighty-seven names sent him
all were Republicans. Surely this Civil
Service is a great thing for the country,
particularly the Republicans.
The stockmen's trail committee should
not fail to come to some definite under
standing in regard to the proposed trail
from this Territory to the ranges of
Wyoming and Montana, as it is a matter
of vast importance to the stock interests
of the Territory at large and this section
in particular. The opening of such a
trail means a good market for our steers
at a nominal expense, and it stands to
reason that this means 'everything for
the future of the stock industry. .
The New York Herald brings forward
the name of Mr. Grady, of Georgia, as
the most available Democrat for the vice
Presidency in 1888 and predicts that the
ticket of Cleveland and Grady would be
a formidable one to defeat. The Herald
bases Mr. Grady's strength on his con
ciliatory speech delivered in New York
some time since, and pertinently says:
As for Mr. Grady, his great and famous
speech, hailed with delight by both North
and South as expressing the patriotic
sentiment of both and all sections, places
him in the forefront of the party, and
insures him the confidence and favor of
the whole country. His name as Vice
President on the ticket would add
strength to it more than that of any
Southern or Northern man. It would
stand for a thorough and final reconci
liation between the North and South,
and would appeal to every patriotic sen-

New Mexican comes ourtn" a 'Ic.'thy
editorial headed, "It Should Not be Per
mitted," in which it enters a vigorous
protest against the cattlemen of Arizona
being permitted to drive cattle from this
Territory to Montana and Wyoming.
The reasons urged against it are that the
drive would have to be made across
private lands and that a destruction of
range and theft of cattle would.be the
result. Neither of these reasons are
plausible and the main and only reason
crops out so plainly that it is hardly
necessary for us to name it, but for the
benefit of the New Mexican we will say
that it is only a New Mexico character
istic jealousy of Arizona stockmen that
induces it to attempt to instigate a preju
dice among the New Mexico stock
growers against this effort on the part of
our Arizona stockmen. This little plain
tive shriek of the New Mexican, is un
worthy of the Territory in which it is
published, and, for the sake of her citi
zens, will say that it, in our opinion,
represents the ideas ef that defunct con

to that of the construction of the Trans

commercial situation in the Argentine

Tucson, May 3. There was a lively
earthquake, commencing at 2:15 this
afternoon, lasting for about four minutes.
Oscillations were from North to South.
Buildings were swayed considerably, in
some instances cracking their windows
and doors, people left their houses for
safety. The public school building
rocked to and fro like a cradle and some
of the plastering fell, creating utmost
consternation among the scholars. The
school was at once dismissed for fear of
repetition of the shocks. Clocks were
stopped in some residences, Crockery
was thrown from shelves, and hanging
lamps swayed to and fro like pendalums.
The Citizen office, a large two-story
brick building, rocked so greatly that no
one could remain in it, the walls seemed
to sway three or four feet fiom their
proper position. The city marshal's
office in the rear of the city hall, had a
hole knocked in it by the shake. The
brick caping of a house in Barrio Libre
was thrown in every direction, and
Pearson's block suffered many cracks in
the brick work and the plastering and
inside need repairs, the trembling was
very serious and of very rapid vibrations,
commencing like barely a conceptible
movement, gradually increasing in inten
sity until one could hardly keep on his
feet. It lasted, according to a gentle
man who timed it, just four minutes,
beginning at 2:14, One or two slight
vibrations have since been felt.
