Weekly epitaph.
Six-Page Edition.
This Page is from the Daily
of Thursday. Dec. 22.
The " Laughing Hyena" across tho
street, which tho San Francisco Ex
change has dignified by the name of
the " cow-boys' obituary organ," hav
jng acknowledged its imbecility, has
called to its aid one " Amicus" and
our venerable friend, Judge Reilly,
who adopts tho old Donnybrook style
of hitting a head wherever seen, and
as a consequence, Clum, Spicer,
Raudall, Gray, Marshall Williams,
the Earps, and several others come
in for their sharo of withering ex
coriation. Tno playful cow-boy and
the gentle stage-robber alone seem
to have escaped this Donnybrook at
tack. By deduction wo are led to
believe that Marshall Williams,
Wells-Fargo's agent at this place,
has robbed all the stages; that Budd
Philpott committed suicide, and that
Clum, while seated inside the coach
the other night, shot tho off-leader in
the neck, " Whistling Dick" in the
leg, and then took to the brush for
the purpose of creating sympathy
and getting an Indian agonoy. We
have given the subject much careiul
thought, but thus far have failed to
see the connection between the night
attack on the stage and tho San
Carlos Indians, unless it is solely in
tho interest of the Indians. The
idea is this: The Indians own the
country, and if tho timid tenderfoot
can be terrorized to such an extent
that he will giro the territory a wide
berth, and tho few people who are
now hero can ho frightened away, it
will redound greatly to tho benefit of
the much-abused Apache. lib can
then roam at will, and there will be
no whito man to molest or make him
afraid. This is very good, from the
Indian standpoint, but if Mr. Clum
had any such idea, when he shot the
poor horse in tho ueok and " Whis
tling Dick" in tho log, he cannot he
too severely condemned from the
whito man's standpoint. Tho Epi
taph's patrons and friends mostly bo
long to the whito race, and tho paper
naturally sympathizes with them in
their views; but notwithstanding
this fact it would fain occasionally
drop a tear for the Apacho Indian,
tho bucolic cow-boy, tho much
abused stage-robber, and all other
Not many moons ago, when Sheriff
Shibell, a gailant Democrat, for
whom a half-dozon San Simon cow
boys voted 104 times, (very nearly
re-electing him) was called upon to
arrest a poor innocent stage-robber,
,ho called around him several faithful
followers, armed them with double
barreled shot-guns, and slipping up
behind tho muili-injured road-agent
unawares, filled him full of buck
shot. At that time tho ignorant peo
ple wero not educated up to tho idea
of extracting the fangs of the deadly
rattlesnake or incarcerating robbers
and murderers in the county jail un
til they had time to recuperato, and
then to be turned loose by an oblig
ing sheriff. No, tho humanitarian
influence of tho Tombstono press had
not yet been felt, a fid milk of all
kinds especially of human kindness
was a scarce article. And, strange
to say, Sheriff Shibell and his gallant
comrades were lionized for having
done what would now be sovcrely
condemned, namely, shooting a de
fenseless man in the back. But then
Charley Shibell was a good Demo
crat, and to that favored class of our
society much allowance must be
mado. Not a word roust be said
against any act committed by a Dem
ocrat, whether it bo robbing a stage,
shooting a man in tho back or with
his hands up, robbing tho people by
adding ,ton per cont to an already
5f3eH?pnie tax, neglecting to
summons grand-jurors who nre dis
posed to think a democratic office
liuider is not immaculate, stuffing bal-
-iot-boxes, or anything else he may
do. And it is for this reason, wo
take it, that that stern old wheel
horse of democracy, James Reilly,
has seen fit to throw the mantle of
charity over tho frailties of his par
tiz'ans. It is merely a question of
political capital, and a part of the
plan for the "ins" to keep in. If
publio attention can be directed to
some fancied grievance, tlio "gang"
can continue to rob the peoplo at
pleuute under tho cover of law, at
the same time neglecting to oboy the
mandates of the courts and allowing
criminals to go scot free. Wo have
too much respect for Judge Reilly to
believe that ho is not honest in his
opinions, but when he claims to bo
opposed to any organization for any
public purpose, not puroly phil
anthropic, he evidently forgots the
time when his fellow-citizens organ-
r ,
"(-iWPont tno lorcible removal
of his ITCTlso in his absence. But
that may have been a philanthropic
organization. Be that as it may, wo
can only find one way to solvo tho
difficulties of tho present situation,
our beat people miners, merchants
and mechanics must unite, and
form such a healthy public sentiment
that it will not bo safe for wrong
doors, whether thoy bo office-holders,
murderers or thieves, to follow out
their natural instincts. If tho coun
try is ruined in tho meantime, wo
can commence anew; but at least let
it bo said that it man will bo protect
ed in his lifo and property, which
cannot be said with truth at present.
Readers of tho Epitaph will re
member that somo months ago we
called tho attention of the Mexican
government to tho necessity for the
establishment of a consulate in
Tombstone. It affords us pleasure
to announce to tho publio that our
suggestion was promptly acted upon
by tho Mexican congress when it.

establishing such office here, which
became a law on the soventh day of
December, a copy of which roached
this city Tuesday evening. This
will end the troubles for Americans
who desiro to cross tho lino for busi
ness or pleasure Wo expect to be
able to announce the appointment of
a consul at an early day.

The Gniteiut Trial Itemimcil.
Washington, December 21. At the re
sumption of the Quiteau trial this morn,
ing, Dr. Hamilton, of New York, took the
atund. Scovillo desired to havo tho other
expnta excluded during the testimony,
but tho court ruled against him. During
tho argument Davidgo was interrupted by
tho prisoner, who said, "i will cut this
short, judge, by saying I am perfectly
willing to have them here. I want them
to learn all they can. I havo so much
confidence in their honor and integrity
that "
Devulgc That's precisely what I am
coming to.
Gniteau You are on the rij,ht track,
judge. I'll take you on my side; you are
encaged lor my side of this case.
Witness was questioned at great length
relative to the operations of tho mind, the
significance of dreams and unconscious
expressions as indicative to mental pro
yiess. Counsel for the prosecution pro.
tested against tho apparently objective di
rection of the inquiries.
Scoville, smiling Well, gentlemen, 1
told you 1 did not know much about this
Ouiteau Then you had better eet oil
the case, if you don't know anything
about it. I think Iteed and I can do bet
ter than you, judging by the way you arc
laboring. (Looking over iho notes which
Scovillo held in his hand, he continued),
"You have got a lot of stuff there. It's
not in your handwriting; I guess it must
have been contributed by some crank."
Quiteau appeared dissatisfied with the
result of tho examination, and finally said
to Scoville, " Oh tear tltat stuff up, Sco
villoj send this man down and call Clark
.Mills; ho is a good deal better man for
you than this one. Ho took a cast of my
head the other day, thinking some people
would be interested to see it. Ho took a
oust of Andrew Jackson, and he thinks it
greater than Jackson's was. lie fouud one
side of my head badly deficient though."
Tho prisoner then branched off to the in
spiration theory, and rattled on for some
time his oft-repeated harangue on the sub
ject ofjrrlsistible pressure.

Closing Xicht of the Episcopal Fair.
Last night the Episcopal church fair at Schief
felln hall was brought to a very successful termin
ation. Tho principal features of the evening were
tho election, the grand raffle and tho dancing.
The election was held for tho purpose of deter
mining who was the most popular lady in Tomb-
si one, or. rather, which of them could secure the
largest number of voles. As an additional feature
of Interest, the lady who received the largest
number was awarded a handsome silver bead
necklace, which was donated to tho church by
Mrs. Dr. Trenr, and is valued at $120. Mrs. Agnes
Dunbar was the fortunate winner, as on counting
the votes, it was found tuat she bad far more in
her favor than any of the other candidates. In
the grand raffle, all tn tickets were sold, though
for want of time many of the prizes were not dis
tributed; for this reason the hall will be open
after 9 o'clock this morning, when holders may
call and present their tlckelB and have the proper
prizes delivered to them.
Tho ladles desire to thauk their friends
and the public for the liberal patronage bestowed
nu them, and also say that tho fair, as well as be
!rig so plcu'aut socially, will doubtless prove a
grand success financially. Total receipts are
roughly estimated at about $G0O, though the ex
act amount realized cannot bo ascertained for a
few days.
First Ward Meeting.
A meeting was held last night at Ham Light's
corral for tho purpose of nominating a candidate
for councilman Irom the First Ward, and eight
delegates to tho cily convention of Saturday even

tised, and consequently only about fifty people
were present, being packed for the purpose which
was accomplished. It In no measure represented
the sentiments of tho ward. I. O. Smith acted as
chulrmau and A. H. Kmanuel, secretary. Charles
N. Thomas was nominated as councilman, re
ceiving eight otcs more than J, W. Young on
tho second ballot. Mr. Thomas has very little In
terest in the ward or In Tombstono afialrs and
cannot be elected. There will be little difficulty
iu electing Mr. Young should he consent to make
the race. Mr, Young is a member of the firm of
Armstrong & Young, and would fill the position
w lib credit to himself and his constituents. Tho
following gentlemen wero elected delegates to tho

He says the bands of outlaws complained of hav

the country. Thoy are headed for Arizona, and It
is probable that that territory will henceforth

cattle thieves at Shakespeare recently, together
with the general organization of militia, aud the
disposition of the people to string up everything

From the Alia Arizona.
For a year past our county jail has'been
unoccupied. But once a (special) grand
jury was called and impaneled, but finished
its business in one day within the past
year. Last week two men charged with
robbery, an account of which wc published,
were brought from tho railroad, and plead
ing guilty, were locked up. This is the
first of a lone list that is sure to follow
before the iron horse crosses the Colorado
river. In time the citizens and taxpayers
expect to have help by way of taxes from
tho railroad, but at present and for one
year to come, we will have a heavy ex
pense without much assistance from any
new source. Our county, that is now
nearly out of debt, will And itself with a
heavy debt before anything is realized
from taxes on the railroad. One point is
in our favor, the A. & P. R. R. has not
asked to be exempt from taxation. Thus,
uulike the S. P. lv It., will pay its way in
the end. Our county organization is kept
up and we are taxed for the purpose of
protecting life and property, and before
the game is played rogues will find the
officials of Mohave county ready to do
their duty, and citizens aud taxpayers
ready to back the ofllials.

mens from that mine. The Lone Star is
widely known, and though it is but par
tially developed it has produced nearly
$200,000. When we take into considera
tion the great disadvantages its owners
have had to'contend against, and the fact
that the main shaft is only down about
250 feet, this is a pretty good showing.
Some of these days the Lone Star will sur
prise the natives. Hon. Patrick Hamilton,
in his "Resources of Arizona," mentions
this mine first of all in Mohave counly,
and says: "Tho Lone Star has been
worked to a depth of 200 lcet, and is
opened by over 300 feet of levels. It
shows a vein of rich ore over 10 inches in
width that assays $150 per ton.

Ah! the primeval simplicity of the fron
tierthe Arizona frontier particularly.
With a native abandon the gentle gazelles
of that section browse around and act as
nature dictates at times, when they arc not
stealing stock or shooting each other. Io
one ot tho picturesque aiioue villages oi
that section, generally known as Tucson,
they had a rallle the other day for a table
cover. Everybody bought a ticket, and
the young lady who worked the cover gave
the bones a preliminary rattle and chucked
43. She thought she 'had the cover, but
she was mistaken for a hrrrid man threw
47 and walked off with the coveted article.
They wept, those male and lemale children
of cactus land. They wept, for they are
very tender-hearted in Arizona, except as
to horse-thieves.
Delightfully naive people these Tomb
Etonians. They gush out their sentiineuls
with bulldog, knifo and newspaper card,
in a gushing kind of gush, which is too,
too gushingly gushy to be expressed in
laNguagc other than the original words.
Here's a specimen from the Tombstone
Nugget. It assays itself:
A Card. I propose to leave town to dav, and I
want It distinctly understood that I am not leav

Following is an extract from a letter
written by C. A. Franklin, probate judge
of Apache county:
Our principal industries are cattle and
wool growing. Of the former there are
30,000, and of sheep 300,000, the latter pro
cueing annually 2$ to 3 pounds ot wool.
Our agricultural resources are somewhat
limited, although sufficient arable land is
cultivatod to supply the home market.
Our ranchmen raise potatoes equal to any
country, besides all the cereals and garden
truck. The populuion of the county is
now about 0000, and the number of chil
dren between the ages of 0 and and 21
is 924.

The Central Pacific Railroad Com

Placer county, through Wells, Fargo
& Co., the sum of $21,800 as taxes on
their roadbed, franchise, rails and
rolling stock, at the rate of -13,315 GO
per mile. They have 112f miles of
road in Placer county, winch is as
sessed by the State Board of Equal
ization at $25,000 per mile. Their
tax, according to the assessment,
amounts to $39,587. The itifference
between the amount of the taxes ac

amount of the tender is material,
and it is not at all likely that the
tender will be accepted. The com

acceptance a receipt in full.

New York. That was purely a mat

mitted adultery with her to get rid
of ajwoman 1 did not love. I thought
it took much more moral courage to

Our tower-light is at last perfected,
aild is a grand success. Last Tues
day night, at half-past six, the light
was turned on. 1 ho evening was
very dark, and the six bright lights,
aggregating 24,000 candle power,
flashing out, dissipated tho darkness
iu a twinkling, and beamed full upon
the thousands of upturned aud ex
pectant faces, ranged for blocks in
every direction, principally along
Santa Clara and Market streets. The
event has been very anxiously look
ed for by its projectors and the pub
lic, tho portion interested, for months,
and when the pure, white light flash
ed out at last, amid the hush intense,
as tho moment ncared that it was to
be turned on, and all saw how effec
tually it lighted for blocks in every
direction, a universal
went up, which, with tho thought of
success, must have filled the heart ol
tho projector to overflowing. The
light is clear and white, though iu
tensely brilliant and pierping, is not
dazzling to look upon even at closo
proximity. It throws a full moon
light reflection for several hundred
rods in all directions, and a half
moonlight to half a mile or more. At
my home at Los Gatos bridge, one
half a mile distant, could be read
coarse print, and time by a watch
could be distinctly told. In St.
James's park, three or four blocks
away, the trees cast a strong shadow,
and the light streamed through the
trees as strongly and very much
A dispatch from New Almudcn said
it could be plainly seen there with
the naked 030, distant sixteen miles,
and the telephone from Mount Ham
ilton announced its discovery from
thare the astronomer thinking it a
new sun, meteor or star, and thinking,
to hand his .name down to posterity
as a discoverer of a new planet, he
hastened to note its postiou in the
heavens with great accuracy. The
light stands somewh t over 200 feet
from the ground now. The large
structure of the tower scaffolding is
a landmark for miles iu all directions,
and the sight, from the summit is in
describably grand. A ladder at one
corner, and a pre-Adamite elevator,
the cage drawn up by two men at a
windlass, both admit of a passage to
to the top.
This tower is, however, only an
experiment, and a city of the sizo of
ban Jose would need at least three
more lights like this to successfully
hide no. not hide, but expose her
wickedness, that fain would conceal
itself beneath tho mantle of night.

Could the scattered and broken
threads which formed the warp and
woof of many a prospector's history
bo gathered together and united, ro
mances without number could be
woven which would rival those
framed by Wilkie Collins. Certain
events in tho history of two pioneers
have recently come to our knowl
edge, which are worthy of mention.
Three years ago Mr. M. Dunkin lo
cated "at Leadvillo the mine which
still bears his name. He was poor,
but he wo'ked faithfully and hard in
hopes that he would 'trike mineral,
hut his mo ey gave out, and ho sold
his interest for $2,300. The pur
chasers, after expending quite a
large sum in sinking another shaft
on the property, which failed to dis
close mineral, returned to that in
which Mr. Dunkin had buried his
hopes, and in sinking seven feet
farther struck pay ore. The mine
was sold a year later for $375,0"0.
An old-timer 111 the west, who was
among the earK arrivals at Rosita,
located the Pioneer, and sunk a
shaft 124 feet deep. Ho subse
quently located tho Chieftain, ad
joining the Leavenworth, and sold
it for $5 on twenty years' timb.
The sum is not yet due. Before
selling, ho offered to give it to Capt.
Lambert, of the Pueblo Chieftain,
from which paper the mine derived
its name, but the captain declined
the gift. Tho same prospector dis
covered the Humboldt, Pocahontas,
Leviathan and Invincible mines, all
of which he gave to a man to whom
he was indebted in a paltry sum.
The three fust named have since
jielded $700,000, and bid fair to
produce twice that sum in the future,
while the old timer is rich prospec
tively in tho ownership of several
lodes in the San Miguel mountains.

A sure cure for blind, bleeding itch

only for piles, itching of the private pails,
