Weekly epitaph.
l& Six-Page Edition.
This Page is from the Daily
of Thursday. Feb. 16.'
Under the above caption the Tuc
son Citizen gives the appended ac
count of tho construction of Pima
county's now official palace, which
reminds the Epitaph that tho board
of supervisors of Cochiso county,
have, as yet, taken no steps toward
the'erection of a court house for this
county. At tho first session of the
board, after the creation of the
county, a plan embodying all the re
quirements of a permanent com
munity was adopted, and it was
hoped, at that time, that tlit struc
ture would, ere now, have been well
along toward cqmplction. The
question of titlo to a suitable lot bar
red tho way for immediato ac
tion, and tho matter rested. Suoh
condition of affairs does not now
stand in tho way of carrying out
their original plans. Besides the ro
moval of this obstaclo the board has
sold thirty thousand dollars, worth of
bonds upon which the taxpayers are
now paying interest. This money
has been, for several months, in the
hands of tho county treasurer, either
in his safo or deposited in some
bank enriching tho holder of the de
posit. Under these circumstances
we call upon tho board for prompt
and decisive action on the mattcrtof
providing the county with suitable
offices. By so doing they will save
the cost of rents, which, added to
the interest on the bonds, is no in
considerable burden upon thn tax
payers. Following is what the Citi
zen says about thoir court house.
The building of the courthouse has'
ho far advanced that tho arrival o'f
the iron grating alone retards the
progress of tho work. The sills for
tho flooring are down, and tho stone
work- for tho basement is ontiroly
completed, and whioh as a piece of
work certainly has no superior in the
territory. The supervisors are to be
commended for their judgment in
the selection of tho design, and tho
contractor is to. bo congratulated on
tho .thoroughness of tho work per
formed, ana if the building bo com
pleted in accordance with tho work
already done, it will bo an honor not
only to Tucson, but to tho entire ter
ritory that will redound to the credit
and good judgment of the supervis
ors under whose care tho edifice is
being constructed, and as tho work
has thus far been dono so well, it
would bo not only a pity but on the
whole a loss to the tax-paying body
of tho community, if the common
burnt brick be used without further
preparation, for although they are
unquestionably good as their kind
can be, thoy certainly are inferior in
durability, loss attractive in appear
ance, and because ot the slight differ
ence in cost, aro consequently higher
priced shall tho " tuck pointed'' or
prepared brick which on account of
its chemically impregnated face, its
glassy surfaco is alike impervious to
tho changing seasons. Never crumb,
ling or chipping off under tho con
tinued influences of dampness or
time, and whioh will in twenty years
be as sound, bright-looking and ap
parently as now as when first put in
Elaco. They resemble the pressed
nok, and although equally as dura
ble, are obtainable at a much less
figure, and are in common uso for nil
such buildings throughout tho east
ern and western state-!. Is it not
tUen adyisablo to make uso of them
in tho construction of the present
county work in preference to others
which at their best will soon wear n
dingy and unfinished appearance that
will contrast tho more sharply with
the better finish of its surroundings,
and thb better they aro the moro glar
ing the defeots of the building can
be seen, so why hesitate about the
using of tho best brick by which the
buildingjcan bo completed in accord
ance with tho work already besjuu?
it is true that tho finish can bo after
wards put on, but it will be moro
expensive and necessarily less thor
ough than if the finish becomes a
part of tho construction as it would
by the use of tho' tuck pointed brick.
Wk hear it upon reliablo authority
that tho causo oftho dismissal of tho
charges preferred by Gen. Willcox
against Gen. Carr was upou the
grounds that tho charges were in
spired by malico and not for the pub
lic good. President Arthur, as commander-in-chief
of tho army, should
order an immediate investigation
into the couro of Gen. Willcox in
the conduct of the lato alleged cam
paign. It is said that there is a standing
order in the military department of
Arizona, that soldiers when out upon
a scout must not firo upon Indians
that thoy may encounter, unless tho
Indians first fire upon them. This
being tho caso it is little wonder that
no "good Indians" aro ever made,
and that peaceful settlers aro left to
the tender mercies of the nation's
wards. One may well exclaim,
"What a countryl what a people!"

A most remarkable proceeding
took place in tho -justice - court of
Wells Spicer, yesterday. In the caso
of tho Territory vs. John Chenoweth
and Mrs. Rutan thero wore several!
witnesses present for tho people, but
tho deputy district attorney. Mr.
Frazcr, dcolined to have more than
one of them examined, and that the
prosecuting witness. Judgo Spicer
not feeling satisfied with this sum
mary proceeding put another witness
on the stand, whereupon his deputy
ship joined with defendant's counsel
in objections to such proceedings,
theiefore tho witness was dismissed,
tho judge not feeling it his province
to opposo tho law officer of tho coun
ty in proseouting the case further.
Tho charge upon which defendants
were arraigned was a grave one
tho whipping of a servant and
should be investigated to the vory
bottom. If the prosecution of al
leged criminals is to be thwarted by
a public official, and that official the
acting law officer of tho county, then
good-bye to justice. We do not ad
vocate the persecution of any person
by virtue of the power vested in the
district attorney, nor will tho people
justify such a course; neither will
they justify tho screening of orime by
virtue of the samo power. This is
a case that calls for prompt and de
cided action on tho part of District
Attorney Prico, who is now, unfortu
nately, absent in Tucson.
From the Citizen, Feb. IS.
Tho surveyors for the Port Lobos
& Gulf railroad arrived yesterday
from San Francisco, and will leave'
Tucson for tho purpose of surveying
tho lino tomorrow or next day. Col.
Chalmers Scott, Mr. C. H. Van Buren
and Mr. Batemen will reprosent the
Central and Southern Pacifio roads.
Gov.Tritle and other gentlemen who
accompany them represent tho Tuc
son& Gulf railroad.
On Monday night at Ezekielsville
Mr. Mark lizekiels took a shot at a
cow-boy with marked success. The
desperado had hit a man over the
head, with his shotgun, after which he
went to lUekiols's stable to take a
horse and escape. Mark, hearing a
racket in tho barn, armed himself
with a pistol and mado a olose reoon
nuisanco, and finding tho position of
tho enemy opened firo and shot him
in tho arm. He turned tho fellow
ovor to an officer and is now in the
Pima county jail.
The Tucson band last night seren
aded Gov. Tritle, who responded in
ono of his happy speeches, whon all
wero invited into tho house, where
was placed before them something
that cheered the inner man. The
governor speaks highly of thoir pro
ficiency in tho horn line.

Mr. Herring then produced and read an

polygamy bill is disposed of, which!

Will pass the senate this afternoon,
'as there is no opposition.
In the debate' in tho house to-day
on tho apportionment bill, Page
said ho believed the fact had been
'demonstrated that the bill of the
committee would bo voted.down by
a large majority. The discussion
had shown the fact that the members
on both sides wanted fair play, and
speaking for the people of California,
he thanked them for the earnestness
and energy with which they had com
battedi the effort which had been
made to perpetrate an injustice upon
that state.
Argument on the straw bonds star
route cases closed to-day. Col. Bliss
bontended that1 all that was necessary
to bo established was the existence
of such facts as would justify a mag
istrate in sending the cases to the
jury. Hines, for the defense, intima
ted that tho prosecution of hs cli
ents by the government was tho out
growth of private malice. The court
announced that its decision would bo
rendered to-morrow.

Contested Seats In the House.
Washington, Feb. 15. The com
mittee on elections of the house to
night considered the Campbell-Cannon
contest. Another session is ap
pointed for to-morrow morning, at
which it is expected a decision will
be reached. Tho opinion generally
expressed is that the committee will
roport in favor of sending the elec
tion back to the people of Utah. It
is doubtful it such a report will be
accepted by the house. Many of the
best lawyers of that body aro agreed
that the fact of Cannon's polyga
mous record is not a giound upon
which tho house can legally deny
him admission, while it is quite
within tho province of tho house to
expel him on that account. It is
urged that should he now go back
to tho people ho would undoubtedly
be reelected by a large majority, as
before, and the result would be
rather to add to his power and popu
larity in the territory. Should he,
however, be seated, and then by a
two-thirds vote be expelled, he could
not again be admitted to the present
house of representatives, if prece
dents are followed, nor probably to
any subsequent house.
The caso of Smyth against Rob
ertson, sixth Louisiana district, will
bo dismissed at its session to-morrow.
This, with the contested cases of
Lanier against King, third Louis
iana, and Mabison against Otes, third
Alabama, was dismissed upon the
theory voted by the committee that
thoy will not go into any caso in
which the contestant does not claim
to have received an actual majority
of votes put into tho ballot-boxes,
claim only being made that intimida
tion prevented a free election, which
would have resulted in the election
of contestant. Contestants, however,
in each of tho above cases will file a
memorial asserting that the sitting
members should be unscatod because
of improper and illegal practices at
election. Tho same course will be
pursued as to several o'her contests,
whioh will be in turn dismissed by
the committee on elections.

ship of tho Republican: Hallett Kil

Dun, Barlow & Co., and Geo. Bliss,
of New York, -a Urge capitalist, ac
tive lawy6r and lifetime personal
friend of President Arthur, "a man
who is supposed to know more se
crets of the administration than any
member of the cabinet, and who has
been appointed by the president
special codnsel to take chargo of the
star route cases. It remains to be
'seen whether this -paper will pursue
the same course toward the star route
prosecuii is that it has from the be
ginning. It would be eurious to see
a nowspa'per ef which Geo. Bliss is
trustee and tho-control of tho stock'
of which he is supposed to have ac
quired, attaoking the star route- pros
ecutions, of which he is himself a
chief defendant. There are those
who say it never has been the inten
tion of the administration to press
the star route suits. Evidently Gen.
MacVeagh is one of those who hold
this view. Possibly tho course of the
Republican will solve this problem.

Ex-parte J. II. Holliday, Wyalt Earp and
Morgan Earp Habeas Corpus.
In this case, petitioners allege iu ihcir
petition that the shcritf of Cochise county
is unlawfully' restraining them of their
liberty. To the writ issued by the pro

setting out a warrant of arrest Issued by
J, B. Smith, a committinc magistrate of
this county, on a charge of murder made
by Isaac Wanton, as his authoritr to hold
the petitioners in prison. Petitioners, In
reply to the return of the sheriff, to show
that their imprisonment is unlawful, al
lege, that they had been taken before
said magistrate for examination on said
charge, at his office at Contention, on'the
14th day ot February, 1883, at which
time the said magistrate adjourned the
hearing to February 15th. 1882, at Tomb
stone, and on said day said petitioners
again appeared before the said magistrate,
at said Tombstone, when the examination
was again adjourned to a future day, but
that .said magistrate had not made any
order of commitment for examination of
said petitioners' to the custody of the
sheriff. Neither does the copy of the
warrant attached to the return of the war
rant show any indorsement of commit
ment thereon.
Sec. 129, procedure In criminal cases,
compiled laws, reads:. "If an adjournment
be had for any cause, tho magistrate shall
commit -the deiendant for examination,"
etc., etc.
Sec. 130 provides: "The commitment for
examination shall be by an indorsement,
signed by the magistrate, on the warrant
of arrest, to the following effect: 'The
within named A. B., having been brought
before me under-this warrant, is commit
ted for examination to the sheriff of, etc.,
etc.' "
The warrant of on est is authority to the
officer to arrest the party and take him bo
fore the magistrate; when that is done,
his authority ceases under the w.arrant,
and it is the duty'of the magistrate to
commit the defendant to the custody of
the officer by indorsement on the warrant
(or allow him bail), and the commitment

for holding the prisoner. If the magis
trate fails to make the order of commit
ment, and adjourns his court, the prisoner
is as free as any one, and the sheritl is with
out authority to hold him.
It necessarily follows that the detention
of the petitioners is unlawful, and they J
must oe uisciiargea, unless, uy tne author
ity of section 22 of the habeas corpus act,
page 376, compiled laws, the court or
judge should think they ought not to be

since the allegcil offence, aro so notorious,
that I feel justified In taking judicial
notice thereor. Whether pctiouers are
guilty or not, it is apparent to any reas
enable being that an examination at this
time -could serve no good purpose. The
evidence (depositions) of the various wit
nesses is now in the possession of the
District court, and another examination
would simply duplicate it, and Mhcn
they have been discharged by one magis
trate, and a failure to indict by one grand
jury, it would seem to be unwise to enter
into nn examination anew at this time.
Whilst a discharge by a magistrate is not
absolutely a bar to another examination,
yet, unless new evidence should be dis
covered, or circumstances occur subse
quent to the first examination sufficient
to appeal to the discietion of the magis
trate, it ought to be, in effect, a bar, and is
a sufficient reason for a magistrate to re
fuse a second examination. Entertaining
these views, it is my judgment that the
petitioners be discharged, and it is so
ordered. J. II. Lccas,
Probate Judge.
