OmOIAL PAPER OP 00CHI8B COOHTT
England is unquestionably a great
nation, her flag floats over the ramparts
of the most remote tribes of the earth,
but with the grand standing army and
her monster gunboats, she cannot, in
open violation of decency and civilization
enforce her despicable coercion bill.
The day has gone past when any- nation
can enforce inhuman laws. The world
is progressing, and this last backward
step in the march of events, will not be
tolerated by the civilized powers of the
The brickmakers of Denver are out
on a strike. The methods of these rest
less strikers and their supporters are
doing incalculable injury to the country
and the laboring men. The Chicago riots
and strikes has driven capital to seek
investments in western land?.. Capital is
timid, and the serious demonstrations
and notions transactions of these people
has, in a measure, had a wonderful effect
upon the growth 'development of
California. Men of wealth refuse to be
dictated to in the management of their
afhirs by men who are in their employ,
and in order to avoid disastrous com
plications have withdrawn their capital
from railroads and such like, and have
invested it in lands. The result will be
disastrous to large eastern cities 'and a
source of great gain to the Pacific slope.
Capital will not, nor should not be dic
tated to, by any organized' mob, and it
never will be. The laborer is worthy of
his hire, and between the honest, well
meaning workingmen and their employer,
there should exist a feeling of respect and
There is a quiet effort being made
throughout the Territory by several
scheming politicians to boost certain
individuals into public office. The
'Epitaph will apprise these schemers
in advance, that their plans will fail.
The days of party bosses and machine
politics has come to an end in Arizona,
and in the future the progressive men,
men of ability and worth, will mingle in
and have a say in tlr afuirs ot our
Territory. The last general election
demonstrated to a certainty that the
days of bosses and ring rule in Arizona
was at end. The magnificent majority
given to Mark A. Smith and against the
machine candidate, spoke out in tones
of thunder to these self-constituted
leaders. The Epitaph served a timely
notice upon these politicians that they
were treading upon dangerous ground.
Now a few of the moss-back Democrats
have combined with a few other imported
individuals, and they propose to "run
the machine," elect their man to Con
gress and have a fine time in general.
We shall be an interested looker on
whilst this unequal battle is in progress,
and will in all probability have some
thing to say upon the subject. Mark
Smith will be a hard man for these
schemers to set aside, and the presump
tions arc that Mark will enter a vigorous
There is no country under the sun
that possesses superior advantages over
Southern Arizona as an agricultural
country, and chief among the different
sections of the Territory possessing
these advantages is Cochise county.
Take for instance the Sulphur Spring
valley, which with an insignificant outlay
compared with the benefits derived, could
be made a blooming garden. The soil
is of the richest quality, and the facilities
for irrigation ca'inot be excelled any
where. The recent outbursts of water
proves conclusively that an abundance
of flowing water can be had at a reason
able depth, and it only remanis for snme
enterprising capitalist to take the matter
in hand and demonstrate the practicabi
lity of an acknowledged theory. From
parties who hive given this matter deep
thought, it is estimated that with proper
management in the construction of a
dam at tha head of the valley and a
judicious utilization of the water supply,
at least iso.ooq acres of land could bt
thoroughly irrigated and placed in a
high state of cultivation. The same is
true "of other sections in the county, and
the Epitaph can see no reason why
such an enterprise should not be inau
gurated. If tliere is any doubt as to the
feasibility of the scheme, why not ex
periment in a small scale and prove to
the doubting that this country is not only
rich in minerals, but also capable of
achieving wonders as an agricultural

By persons who attacked by a mild
form of rheumatism, neglect to seek
prompt relief. Subsequent torture is pre
vented by an immediate resort to Hos
tetter's Siomich Bitters. Slight exposure
or occasional draught, wjll beget this
painful malady, where there is a predis
position to it in the blood. 'It is not diffi
cult to arrest the tioublc at the outset, but
well nigh impossible to eradicate it when
matured. No evidence in relation to this
superb blood depurent is more positive,
than that which establishes its efficacy as
a preventive and remedy for rheumatism.
Not only is it thorough, but safe, which
the vegetable and mineral poisons, ofien
tiken as curatives of the disease, are not.
Besides expelling the rheumatic virus from
the system, It overcomes fever and ague,
biliousness, constipation and also dys
pepsia. Wanted A nurse girl, apply to Mrs.
McNutt at the hot'., at Fort Huachuca.
Probably as much misery comes from
habitual constipation as from any de
rangement of the functions of the body,
and it is difficult to cure, for the reason
that no one likes to take the medicines
usually prescribed. HAMBURG FIGS
