OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 1893 The "Vermiform Appendix," that edited the Yuma local paper, printed last Wednesday had a terrible attack of "appendicitus." If he recovers sufficiently from this dread disease caused by excesses not to be named here, he may be able to have an operation performed, .if not his condi tion is hopeless. About twice every summer, there is a sudden spasm, which somo over Cheated victim has in regard to putting 'up an ice manufacturing plant m Yuma. When it is understood that such a plant as the town should have, with cold storage capacity accompany, ing it, will cost from 812,000 to ,$15,000 besides the ground to put it on, the subject grows before the vic tims eyes, not to speak of the fact, 'that the moment ice is manufactured in Yuma, and put on the market at afrom i to a cent per pound, it is rmore than probable that the Union Ice Company will come in and re duce the price of their ice from two .cents, its present price, to or i of a cent per pound, when nine-tenths of the peoplo of Yuma, would patronize A V r.cw, until they had compelled the new to shut down. See Tucson and r,irt too pniTiiriiiu mm .mil ul uno other towns as an example. Upon dilligcnt inquiry we find that the putting in of an ice plant in Yuma, in the immediate future, is only more -oilj- Wo hnri hnnnrl not. All of the counties, except Yuma, along the line of both great railroads, crossing Arizona, have given Dr. - Goodfellow, the efficient Territorial physician authority, in case of the appearance of Cholera at any point -within their limits, to use such meaa--ures as he may deem necessary, to check it, and to hold it in control. This is right, should a case appear, action must be taken at once. A delay of a few hours, might bo the cause of many deaths. The strictest quarantine will be enforced at No gales, on tho boundary line between Arizona and New Mexico, at Benson, Tucson and east of Yuma, on the Southern Pacific railroad. On the .A. & P. it will be no less strict. Dr. Brannan, surgeon for that road, has been put in charge of quarantine matters on that line. Dr. B. is one of the ablest physicians in the Terri tory and will see that nothing is left undone to prevent the scourge from spreading in case it makes its ap pearance. Dr. Goodfellow is now placed, where he can and will use every means within his reacli to pre vent its entering tho Territory. He is in hearty and active co-operation with the State Board of Health of -California, which will render him all the assistance possible. The Dr. does not expect that the Cholera will reach Arizona, but if it does, he is bound to be ready to kill it out at once. The -Boards of Supervisors deserve credit for their prompt action. UKFB1GIVDL1' TO YU5IA. It is only a short time since we were compelled to call the attention of the Phoenix Gazette to some of its mud throwing. In an editorial in its issue of the 11th, mis-led no doubt by its Yuma informant, it stoops again, to assist in doing the people of Yuma and Yuma county a great injustice, in an editorial on the Algodones grant case. The people of Yuma, to a man, not excepting more than two or three, so far as can be found, are perfectly satisfied with the decision already given by the United States Land Court, and do not care to try the case again after it has been care fully investigated and thoroughly tried by five of the most- impartial, capable, intelligent, and able jurists, that ever sat upon the bench, before whom all of the evidence on either side of the case, was brought and most thoroughly examined, and a de cision rendered accordingly. The slur cast upon the Land Court, is an insult tc that body. Not another laud grant case in Arizona, will be affected by the de cision in this case, as there is not an other grant in the territory based up on the same conditions. The argu ment of the Gazette, that an appeal, which will set this section of tne country back for ten years, will not injure it, but rather help it, is about like its other reasoning, false in its conclusions. Our whole people are satisfied with the decision of the Land Court. Not a business man in Yuma or the county, not a farmer, stockman, settler, old or new, not a man of influence, or who desires to see Yuma prosper can be found, far and wide, that wants to seo the case op pealed. Wo regret to find the Gazette against the peoplo in this case, and on the side of those, who would ruin every interest and prospect of this whole region, for year3 in or der to carrj7 their point, and become the monopolists of the day, in bring ing ruin and distress upon those who do not deservo them. From the outset, the Gazette has shown a spirit in regard to this mat ter which is uncalled for, and its in sinuations, that because our people do not wish the Algodones case appealed to theU. S. Supreme Court, they are "winking at fraud," or of "pulling wool over the eyes of the Supreme Court," will nob be received in Yuma. with the best of grace. WAY OFF AGAIN. In the Phoenix Gazette of the 11th insfc., there is an article on tho Al godones land grant, the ear marks of which show, that it was written in Yuma, which is as far from tho truth as the general run of falsehoods, writ ten by those, who wish to have the case appealed. First of all, neither Hooper, Hinton, Redondo nor Con treras ever had a tbiug to do with the Algodones grant. They were in terested in an entirely different pro ject. The other statements made by the writer, arc about as far from the truth. His intended slur at the peo pie's mass meeting, held in Yuma, and the mud he attempts to throw at At torney General Heney, are worthy of their author. He spends his force on the "real settlers." It might as well be understood, once and for all, that there was not a "real settler" upon the Algodones grant when the lands which compose it were withdrawn from market, and only three settlers upon it when the present claimants took hold of it. These three not only do not favor the appeal, but are op posed to it. The company, as it agreed, has given them the land to which they had a claim. Every actual settler on the gmnt is more than satisfied to have the decision of the Land Court stand. It is only the one or two squatters, who did not even squat on the land they claim, who never lived a day or slept a night, who could not file a location, who with eyes wide open took their chances on the land, the ownership of which was well vested in other own ers, as decided by the United States Land Court of Privato Claims, who desire to see the case appealed. ADDITIOIVAI, LOCAL. Whole barley, 14 cents, Yuma Lumber Co. Mrs. J. N. Converse arrived from the east last Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. C. are very nicely located in the Shannesy cottage on Knob Hill. Frank Guerra, foreman of the Cargo Muchacho mine, is spending the day in town. He expects to start the'mill up with a full force on the first of next month. The Misses Ruth and Flora Bos sung, returned from their visit in California, Thursday evening. They enjoyed a very pleasant va cation. The ice cream and strawberry entertainment at the S. P. Hotel garden, Wednesday evening, was well attended and a good time was enjoyed. Sam Flanders, superintendent of bridges on the S. P. R. R., and E. L. Swaine, assistant resident engin eer, were passengers on Thursday's express for Los Angeles. Capt. J. A. Mellon, ia authority that nothing definite has been de cided upon in regard to building another boat, by the steamboat company for the river trade. He says that thus far it is only talk. Miranda, the cholo who passed a railroad laborer's check upon Gan- dolfo & Sanguinetti, several weeks since, which had been raised from 85 to $25, escaped from the county jail Monday. Gandolfo & Sanguinetti's new store can be seen plainly from the trains ten miles east of Yuma. As soon as the eye catches it, the other buildings around it can be seen, and they show off well. It is Yuma's great land mark as you come into town from the east. If the ladies would abandon cos metics and more generally keep their blood pure and vigorous by the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla nat urally fair completion would be the rule instead of the exception, as at present. Puro blood is the best beautifier. From time to time, reports have come in. that dead men have been found along the line of the railroad east of here. G. W. Norton tells us that the body of a dead man was found last week by the rail road section men near Tacna. An empty bottle that had contain ed water was found by his side, but not a thing by which he could be identified, or to tell from whence he came or where he was going. To all appearances he died of thirst. Ho also tells us that several others have been found un der similar circumstances, upon which no inquests have been held. There is not a Justice of the Peace from Yuma to Gila Bend, a dis tance of 123 miles. It seems that the different Boards of Supervisors should appoint such officers, wherever they may be needed. Superintendent Gates' now elec tric arc lights shone forth from their mastheads at tho prison, Thursday evening for the first time in many months. They are a great improvement on the weak appearing lights in use for some time. Wm. Lahey, who has been at work for some time on the South Gila Canal dam, has been in town for several days. He says that all of tho work done on the dam and canal is of the most substantial kind, and built strong, without re gard to cost. Walter J. Raymond, who sold lands out on the desert, represent ing that they lay along the Colo rado river," whose headquarters were at Dayton, O., has been ar rested and will be tried in October on the charge of using the mails for fraudulent purposes. It is re ported that there are a number of indictments against him. We learn from a reliable source that one of the ablest mining ex perts in California, has been at work for eome time thoroughly ex amining the gold mines, situated in the mineral belt that extends from Ehrenberg, through the Plomosaand Harqua Hala dis tricts and on to the eastward. Ho has already secured some of the most promising property in that section-, upon which his company vviH put up a mill. Pine Bark as a Diet. Ono article of subsistence some times employed by the Indians is only resorted to when they aro driven to great straits by hunger. Around many of tho watering-places in tho pino forests of Oregon and California the trees of Pinus ponderosa may be seen stripped of their bark for a space of three or four feet near the base of tho trunk. This ha9j3een accom plished by cutting with a hatchet a line around tho tree as high as one could conveniently reach, and an other lower down, so that tho bark, severed above and below, could be re moved in strips. At certain seasons of the year a mucilaginous film sep arates the bark from the wood of the trunk. Part of this film adheres to each surface, and may be scraped off. Tho resulting mixture of mucilage colls and half-formed wood is nutri tions and not unpalatable, so that, as a last resort, it may be used as a de fense against starvation. The fre quency with which signs of, its having been resorted to are met with is a striking indication of the uncertain ties and irregularities of the supply department among Bavages.

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 gets inflamed you have -a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deaf ness is the result, and unless tho in flammation can bo taiten 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 mucous surfacee. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any caso of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for cir culars, free. F. J.
