OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 1893. By a decision of the Court in Florence, Miss Juana, daughter of the late J. D. Walker, becomes the sole heir to his estate of $1,500,000. Let every one attend the mass meeting to night, and hear what Yuma will be one year from today, if the Aigodones Land case is appealed. Little hoys 5 to 12 years of age are seen on our streets smoking cigarettes. A few nights since a boy 9 years of age, was taken home drunk, too drunK to walK,and yet there are severe laws against selling or giving liquors and cigarettes to boys under age. Why is the law not enforced? The "scraps" in Yuma, over reach those in the English house of Com mons, in number only, perhaps a little in the language used, but all are set tled alike by apologies, shaking hands and a drink, no blood, no one is hurt, mostly blow and bluster, and all no credit to the participants, or to the intelligence of the 19th century. The voters of Yuma county need to purchase a memorandum hooK, in which to note the names of those who favor no taxation on valauble gold producing property, owned and run by foreigners, and those "tie-counting" capitalists, who want to retard the progress of Yuma, for the next five years, by having the AJgodones land case appealed. Every citizen who is spending a dollar in improvements in Yuma that, wo haAe met, says. If I had known that the Algodones Land Grant case would be repealed, I would not have spent a cent, on any improvements until the case is decided." One prom inent man said, uIf my store,, was not commencjd, I would not build, until the land case is decided. Appeal the Algodones land case, and., you can buy any property in Yuma, six months hence, for one half of its present value. This is just what our "tie-walking" capitalists aro trying to do. Not one of those, "we the people," so far as can ascer tain own 8500 worth of property in the world. Some of them never pay " a debt, never intend to, and yet "we the people" use all of their efforts to have the case appealed. - . As a result of the heavy rains in . "the northern part of the Territory, he'Co!orado river at this point raised a foot during the week end ing July 22d. Since that time it has varied but little, until Wed nesday night, when it fell 7 inches. Since then it has been fluttering around the 18 feet 9 inches mark, which is .30 of an inch above the average for the past 14 years. The highest was 20 feet 3 inches in '91; lowest 16 feet 5 inches in '85. A mass meeting of the citizens of Yuma has been called for this evening to take such steps as may be deened xiecossary, to present to the U- S. At torney General at Washington D. C., views of thofleading, substantial busi ness men and citizens of this section, upon the appeal of tho Algodones . Land Grant question to the U. S. Supreme Court. Eveiy resident of Yuma and vicinity interested in this important matter should be present. Meeting will be held at the Summer Garden of the S. P. Hotel. Let the Algodones Land Case be appealed to the U. S. Supreme Court, and you might just as well close your doors, go to sleep and rest for the next five years or move out of Yuma. The docket of that court is now three years behind. If this important land case can be decided in two years after the present docked is cleared, it will be well. If the Yuma ''pesimists," who own nothing, some of whom walked into towii, and more of which ought to walk out, have their way, they will yet be around our streets begging for a nickel, with which to buy a loaf of bread. If our dispensers of Justice, in lieu Of a nominal fine, which is paid by the hard working mothers and grand mothers of some of our would be high toned, hoodlums and "hobo3," when they violate the law, would sentence them to 10, 20, or 30 days in jail, or in tho chain gang, it would bring them to a point, where they would learn to respect tho law, and to care a little inoro for their poor hard worKing mothers, for whom they now have no regard, more that to squeeze the $10 or $15 out of them, whenever they are arrested and fined. Let the chain gang be tried. It is- a civilizer for such beings, unfit to be called men. IT IS M0553S lYOH.1. It is reported, but no official notice has been published, that the U. S Attorney General' will appeal-the Al godones Land Grant case to the U. S Supreme Court. If true, it is to he greatly regretted. It was hopod by every friend and well-wisher of Yuma that this would not be done. It has been known for some time that some of those interested in other projects of thfiir own, not 1000 miles from Yuma, and those having interests in other land grants, two or three enemies of Yuma's progress, one or two sore heads, and two or three big heads, with which too many towns are cursed had all joined hands, and by the basest of misrepresentations, have been trying to lead the U. S. Attorney General. to have an appeal taken. It is believed that if all of the facts in the case, were fully known, that U S. Attorney General Olney would stop this move at once, for he is not the man, who would lend a hand to any black-mailing scheme, or to assist in retarding the progress of a grand sec tion of country, so much desired by home seekers at the present time, much less to lend a hand to set back a new country for years, and to ruin one of the most promising towns in the southwest. Deafness Cannot lc Cnrea by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear, There is only one way to cure Deaf ness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lin ing of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube get3 inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deaf ness is the result, and unless the in flammation can be taKon out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the raucous surfacee. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh), that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for cir culars, free. E. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.
