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
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.

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. Popular

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.
