'VlHRTo 1H WEEKLY EPITAPH. TOMBSTONE. ARIZONA, MARCH 57, 1SS2 Six-Page Edition. This Pa??c is from the Dailv of Tuesday, March 21. DEEP TUXXKI.IXG. In 1SG3 and 1801 the great rage was' deep tunneling to open up the comparatively few mines then in ex istence. It was about this timo that Sutro located the long boro that im tnortalized his name, and from which ho has realized a golden fortune, while the stockholders havo got the experience. All tho papers at all given to tho support of tho mining industry advocatod the tunneling system whero anything like adequate advantages could be obtained. We can most of us look back to tho in ception of tho Sutro tunnel and dis tinctly remember what miracles it was to work for tho mines on the Comstock lode. At that timo Aniei icarfs had little or no experience in silver mining, and did not realize how rapidly a company could peno trato tho bowels of tho oirth by aid of modern appliances. Their idea of mining was based upon the old, !owj fussy way of Europe and Great Britiari, where they havo ttimaa n a$ tA, UMQO III PB5?3 tho com r -.W - Bars of prosperity be fore they reached that level. How wofully were all disappointed iii the outcome of the venture! Long before the tunnel approached the lode near ly every company was hundreds of feet below its level, and great en gines were operating ponderous pumps that wore deluging tho coun try with rivers of water. It is only of late that the tunnel has been of any practical benefit to tho mines, and that simply in drainage, no ore' being run through it, as was ex pected there would be. Upon the Pacifio coast, the tunnel era ha3 long been left in the back ground, it sel dom being applied to the most su perficial prospecting. 'Not so, how over, in Colorado. There, owing to the precipitous nature of the coun try and tho system of parallel ledges in a hard enclosing rock, they hare in many places run tunnels with good results, if we can believo the published reports from there. In tho New York Daily Indicator, of March 15th, wo read ,jhat a very im portant enterprise has been started in Cloar Creek county, Col,, by a company with $1,000,000 capital to drive a tunnal a distance of four miles . through the mineral belt ox tending through Clear Creek and Gilpin counties to tho gold mines in the latter county. Work has al ready commenced. The tunnel is, t be 14 by 10 feet in size. Tho reads very much like ono Munchausen's tale? entirely too mod bore; besides a burden Ip-t they is and Biy, which except it peno- no entire range of i is peculiarly a Col- "Brick" Pomeroy is fed in another, and has been for last two or three years. So far as our knowledge goes, deep tunnel ling in America has been a failure, taken as a whole, and tho exceptions, if exceptions there arc, only go to prove tho rule. In purely prospect work, wo be lieve this rule will hold good tho world over, that tho best results aro attained by following the ledge wherever it may go. Never leavo it until such time as it is so thoroughly developed that a working shaft Ju bo sunk and levels run to it with the tame certainty that a wagon road can be built to tho San Pedro. The reasons for this system of develop ment are obvious: Ledges or veins of oro are neither uniform in their trend, dip or mineral constit uents. This is a fact patent to all miners. A shaft may bo started at a point upon a vein whero it is poor, botween two. chimneys, and it may go down indefinitely with out cutting ore, when, possibly, within a fow inches upon oither or both sides there is the beginning ot & bonanza. Tho ledge may also havo a fairize, but at a depth of ono hun dred or two hundred feet it may closo up so that the bare walls touch eaoh .other, thero being a simple seam to show whero tho ldgo ought to be. How ofted has it been veri fied that by tunnol or vertical shaft, .when the ledge has been out it has been a source of disappointment to the owners. Wo know of ono ot tho finest bodios ot oro in Tombstone, that a crosscut was driven within two feet of it and tho ore was not discovered for a year later when ad- TthMHDKv BHHUpi' IS yHHHJ tBHk lf .VaaaaKv' JjNHRHP ddfcHViaBaHirh i s "fttftiHRme (.-" uitional work was Hone. All the prospeot worK in ono ot ino leveling mines of this district is dono by fol lowing up the veins of ore, no mat ter how small tho beginnings may be, and tho results have .uniformly been most successful. By tunneling, were all other things equal here, such results could not have been attained. Wekk it not for tho limited circu lation of our contemporary, tho great prominence given tho recent trouble by rehashing the old story would work great injury to bur county. Wo feel as strongly as any ono on tl o subject, and as earnestly con demn all acts of lawlessness, more especially tho diabolical tarime of as sassination. But wo likewise con demn tho ghoulish spirit which would keep (hunting in the face of the out side world the details of n by gone tragedy which prostrates business, leading strangers to belivo that their lives would bo endangered should they visit us for the purpose of en gaging in business or inspecting mining property with a view to pur chase. It is ai: acknowledged fact that tho city of Tombstone, like all prosperous mining camps, has its full quota of hard characters, who hold life very chnap, but that jly run the town, iiu JSHe hibh' SiicFcaunot guard 'b gainst. Ho is usually a paid tool of WMrt .X-K w " a still greater cowaid, and he lives m all communities, even the most respectable. What wo most strenu ously object to is that our citizens should be mado the sufferers by tho constant and useless publication of thread-baro stories calculated to woik injury to tho entire community. Souk idea of tho sizo of the match trado may bo gained by a glance at tho figures paid for stamps. Tho government exacts a rovenuo of one cent per 100 matches manufactured. During tho year ending May, 1881, one company paid for stamps $4,500, 000. This year tho amount will be increased to 5,000,000. There are 200 matches in a box. Tho tax is 2 cents; they aro sold to tho grocer for 3 cunts, and retailed at 5 cents. Four million five hundred thousand dol lars represent 450,000,000 1-cent stamps. As each stamp -represents 100 matches, tho grand total manu factured is 45,500,0J0,000 matches, or 277,500,000 5-cent boxes. Mirssns.

Frank Stilwell Pound Dead this Morning, Seine Another Chanter In tho Karp Clanton Tragedy. Special Dispatch to tho Erinm. Tucson, March 21. This morning at daylight the track-man at tho Southern Pacifio railroad depot found the body of Frank Stilwell about one hundred yards north of Porter's hotel, at the sido , of the track, rid dled with bullets. Tho circumstances of tho case, so far as learned, aro as follows: Stilwell arrived here Sun day to appear before tho grand jury on a charge of stage robbery near Bisbco last November. Ho was un der bonds for his appearance. Last night when tho west bound passen Her train arrived, it brought the REMAINS OF MORGAN EARP, who had been killed Saturday night at Tombstone, and his three brothers, accompanied by Sherman Mo.Uasters, Doc Holiiday and a man known as Johnson, all heavily armed with shotguns and revolvers. A few mo ments before tho , train started, Stil well and lie Clanton (brother to WmU-Clanton, who was killed in ?a.M.. . . jtono oy the karps,) went to 8t to meet a man by name of J, who was to have come in PBS before the grand jury. frtlicir arrival at the depot they saw tho Earp party walking on the platform. Stilwell advised Clanton to leavo at once, saying they wanted to kill him. Clanton left a fow mo ments later. Stilwell was Seen WALKING DOWN THE TRACK in the direction where his body was found. Four of tho armed men who were on the platform si on followed. One was described as a slender, light complexioned man wearing a white hat. Just as tho train, was leaving, six shots wore heard in the locality of the assassination, but attracted no particular attention, and nothing was known of the tragedy until this morning whop the body was discov ered. Six shots went into his body four rifle balls and two loads of buckshot. Both legs were shot through and A CHARGE OP 11UCKSHOT tu his left thigh, and a charge through his breast, which must have been delivered close, .as the coat was powder burnt, and six bucksli .t holes within a radius of three inches. Stil well had a pistol on his person which was not discharged. He evi dently was taken unawares, as he was desperate in a, fight and a quick shot. His watch was taken, in the hurry of which a part of the chain was left. There is much excitement here concerning the assassination, and many speculations are rife. Some say that he was DECOYED TOTHE SPOT whore he fell as ho possessed strong evidence against c rtain stage rob bers. Uthers think he was trying to get away from the Earp par ty and was overtaken, while it is thought by some that he went down the track to shoot one or more of the Earp party as tho train was moving out, two of them bcirg on board. Tho killing is thought to have been done by four of tho party who accompanied the Earps here, as the four men who followed the de ceased down the track WERE NOT SEEN AGAIN. This morning at one o'clock as the cast bound freight train approached Pnpago, nine miles east of here, it was flagged and four armed men got on tho '.rain. They are strongly sus pected. Tho deceased was 27 years ot Hue; was a native ot texas; is a brother to the famous scout Jack Stilwell. Ho lias" been in Arizona four years; was a teamster at Signal for some timo and lately has been keep ing a livery stable at Charleston nnd Bisbce, and was an ox deputy sheriff of Cochiso county. Yesterday Ike Clanton received several dispatches from Tombstone, warning him to look out that a party wtre coming down to put him out of the way, which put him ox ins GUARD. The authorities here aro deter, mined to 'go to tho bottom of this matter, and if the parties are appre hended there will bo no sham exam ination, but a trial on merits, and the guilty parties, whoever they may be, will suffer the penalty of tiie law. The Flood at .IIIUIcan'Nltend. St. Louis, March 21. Tho clerk of tho sipnmer City of Providence, just from Vieksburg, givos some in formation about the floods in tho lower river, not before published. The worst point in tho wholo river is MiMigan's bend. Thero is an 6ver flow and counter-overflow in that district. Tho waters from the Mis sissippi are going over tho levee and floods back. The waters from tho Yazoo aro coming in from behind, and when these two meet a whirl pool is formed which destroys every thing in its course. The locality of tho whirlpool is changing constantly and every day it completes new des truction. A largo yawl, filled with negroes, was caught in it the other ;day,ind upset and all its occupants were drowned. The whirlpool struck a church a few days ago, in whioh several people with their stock had .been taking refugo. ..JEbe-nmureSr !wajiriVfcw"Irnnutcs,"torii to pieces," the .stock drowned and the people floated mound in the water somq hours, but were finally rescued. Tlift ortox struck the residence and stable of an old paralytic farmer by the namo of Jameson,- and totally? annihilated them.- Tho old gentle-? man was drowned . , The Chinese Mill in the IIouf. Washington, March 21. Uiscus-2 sion on tho Chinese bill in the housed will We resumed to-morrow and will- prohrfhly bo allowed to continue until aboutfthreo o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, when, according to Pago's present intention, he will demand the previous question. Friends of. the bill do not think it advisable, to limit the debate to any earlier poriod. Pa cifio Coast members are meanwhile assiduously laboring to gaj.i votes, both almony republicans and demo crats, anil a o satisfied that they lost nothing by delay. Page, who has the immediate charge of it, will endeavor to prevent tho adoption of any amendments, and for the reason here tofore Mated is particularly earnest in refusing to give his consent to any reduction of timo of su-pension. Hv mnintainiiiir the stand he has I to encounter serious embarrassments which were not experienced in the senate; namely,, a positive knowl edge on' the part 'of many members that President Arthur would like to have the period of suspension re duced to ten years, and they have widely circulated tho rumor that in caso the bill bo brought to him with out amendment of its twenty years' suspension clause he will veto it on tho ground' of alleged infraction of the spirit of the treaty. These re ports find but few believers in unprejudiced- circle's, but are exciting a considerable -amoulit of influence in the house, and their ciruulition is industriously- promoted by what seems to be a pretty well organized lobby made up representatives of Chinese six companies in tho Bosten and New York shipping interests, and by sentimentalists from all parts of tho country. General Roseerans is confined to Ids room to day by threatened ery sipelas in the wounded foot. Hopes to be at the capital by Wednesday to speak and vote on the Chinese bill. Another Itemtirertlon. Chicago, March 21. A Times Washington special states, on the authority of a trustworthy person, that President Garfield promised Dorsey, out of personal friendship, tlut there should be noprosecutions, and that Ire subsequently allowed Dorsey to see and examine all official paper, memoranda of evi dence, etc., and that Dorsey made notes of the same and has prepared a thorough defense. The AwMisMin. Washington, March 20. Guiteau is making $50 a day on tiie sale of his photographs and autographs, and uses it in getting out his book. He is rational on every subject but stal wartism, but is furious at the name of Gorham, and s-iys those papers were all abusing Garfield till God's man camo to remove him. He is de lighted at Roseerans attack on Gar field. Petition for 1'anlon I'rlvate Claim. Laud Washington, March 21. Peti tions for the pardon of Sergeant Mason aro pouring in by every mail. The house committee on private land claims have agreed to report, favorably on the bill confirming tho title of J. McGarrahan to tho rancho Patiocho Grande. The bill provides that bona fide purchasers o a portion of the tract shall bo protected, and McGarrahan reimbursed. Incut. ilelvilIt-V Itcport. Washington, March 21. A very long and complete report of Engin eer Melville, of the Jeanettc, has been submitted to the secretary of the navy, in which he furnishes a detailed account of the ciuise, suf ferings and hardships of the explor ers, and furnishes little or no nope of the rescun of DeLong and the re mainder of the crew. fjicorsm ImI-ucitoittM. Atlanta, March 17. The leading independents of Georgia aro in cau cus to-day. They havo formulated an address to the people, urging the formation of anew party and calling for a mass meeting here of the Geor gia independents, on Junol. Nympnthy for Nersennt Mason.

Otrr miners generally are feeling veryijiibilant over the success of 'the mill. Many of them now see their way clear to getting a supply of the fqe?ffful, which has been scarce with them for some time ptst. Messrs. J. V. Vickcrs, tho well- known real estate and insurance agent of Tombstone, and J. G. Parke, U. S. mineral surveyor and mining engineer, from the same place, were in town on Friday. The mill is now running on ore from tho Juniper mine. Two hun dre'd tons will be worked before a clean-up is made. The owners of this large gold mine expect large re turns, and we believe they will not be disappointed. Tho committee appointed to take steps towards procuring a patent for our townsito are busily at work, and are making good progress. It is thought that it will not be loner ere .those claiming town lots will be able to procure deeds for the same. A rain set in on Friday night (which has continued without ceasing iup to the time of going to press. Ju jconsequence tho air is fresh and (bracing, and the grass is beginning to look green, .byerything betokens the advent of spring. jj The Road Side miiio, belonging to C. y. Barrow & Co.,' is showing up some very hue ore. I he shaft is now down twenty-seven feet with a well defined vein o"er two feet in width. The ore is principally gold with traces of copper and carbonate. Two miners, sleeping on tho side of one of our mountains, were vis ited by a polecat the other night. The unwelcome visitor proceeded t. announce his arrival, when one of the sleepers awoke and exclaimed: "In hell, by J s, I smell the sul phur." Two civilians and two soldiers wore arrested at Willcox last Mon- iday, for stealing government prop erty. They plead guilty as charged hofore Judge Burke. The soldiers were turned over to the military au thorities and the civilians were bound over to appear before tho grand jury. We have been reliablv informed ihat P. W. Smith has sold out his one-half interest in the rich mines of Winchester to Gen. Gashwilcr and others, of Sau Francisco, for one hundred and fifty thousand dollars This property was bonded by P. W, smith for foU.UUU, ho selling one half to Geo. Hearst for the amount -of tho bond. He now disposes of the other half for the above named sum, it being a clear gain. How Far Can a Man 'o on Foot in Hlx IuysT Hazael's performance of GOO miles in six days, says the New York Sun, was clearly not the limit of his abil lty. JJetore the close ot tno race he had his backer to bet on his going 625 miles. No one could be found to take this bet, so he contented him self with G0C miles, though there is not the slightest doubt that he could have made the greater distance if there had been a special inducement His backer thinks he could have gone G49 miles in the six days. For a six day race, as in all protracted strug gles, of course the quality of museu- lar endurance is the first reauisite But that will be found ust'ess unless there goes with it a strong digestion. John Ennis was certainly a man of extraordinary natural endurance and pluck, but he had to abandon his ef fort to make a fortune through go us-you-please races, simply because his stomach would not go with-him After endurance and digestion good condition being always understood comes gait. Horsis win with good and bad gaits; and so also of the men who have rolled up great scores; some travel with case and no appar ent muscular exertion except what is directly employed in locomotion; and some go laborious y, with the ex peusc of a great deal of muscular effort that can bo of no service in really driving the body forward If tho man that clearly wastes power can keep up with the man that goes with no such waste, it is evidently because ho can generate more foico to waste, which implies a better digestive apparatus; and it must be remembered that the un gainly Fitzgerald, in scoring ft82 miles in the. previous match, showed his undeniable ability to go over GOO miles. Also a man should be able to go well both walking and running O'Lcary, in condition, easily walk ed away from his competitors; but when a runner came against him he was hopelessly beaten. Ho could walk, but could not run. bo the old grenadier Krohno possessed enor mous endurance, but could not reach the runners. See, now, what sort of a man has just gone his GOO miles with case. Hazael always has been known as a great runner for any dis tance from five to twenty miles; but he was never celebrated as a walker. Any one seeing him coming down the stretch at speed might well be lieve he saw a ghost. When run ning, in spite of his bowed, misshap en figure, Hazaol travels with such an evenness of gait, and such ease and grace of motion, that he almost seems to get over tho ground with out any movement at all. Yet, when he slows down to walk, ho moves with great latx.r and only moderate speed. Hazacl is nearly 40 years old, long past the primo of strength, and has probably led a lire very different ftom what would be martcd as the best for a man to preserve his vitality to the fullest extent. He is a suffeier from hernia, and is a poor walker, and, judging from his previous performances, it is not' at all likely that his digestion is of remark able strength, or that ho is gifted with such wonderful powers of 'recu peration as was tho case with Wej toti. Yet, such as he is, he has shown his ability to go not far from G50 miles m tho 142 hours. His present score may never be beit en, for the reason that six-day match es may go out.of fashion; but it does not seem improbable that the ideal and phenomenal six-day runner, a healthy youth with a cumbinatton of the best of endurance, digestion and gait, would cover nearly, if n-1 quite, 700 miles. - A New Ore Car. From the Crctted Bultt (Col. Iti-pub:icn. We have been shown a new and improved style of ore car, which has many advantages over any we have ever seen before. It is the invention , of Nathaniel B. Burpee, of Crested Butte, and is especially adapted to inclines, although it works equally well on levels. The car is rViade of heavy sheet iron pressed into the shape of an ordinary car, but the running genr is of novel design and greatly reduces the cost of mining. Instead of requiring' four wheels and two tracks, but one track and two wheels are used, and tho car is hung below the raii. The entire rig weighs less than the running gear of an ordinary car; thus enabling much more dirt and ore to be removed with a given power than usual. A s.ngle rail of the lightest pattern is" sus pended on brackets near the roof of the tunnel or drift, on which the two wheels, which are set in line, work. No ties are required, and where up rights are used in the tunnel, no additional timbers are re quired. From these wheels, which work on a steel pin, bands run out and down around the car whioh hangs below. In this way the loss by friction is reduced to a minimum, while the saving in rails brings the new style car within reach of every miner. At the top of the incline, the rail is bent down for a few feet and ends in a curve upward, by means of which the car is given an impetus forward and suddenly stopped, so that the dirt is suddenly thrown forward and- the car dumps itself. Two cars can be used on the same rail and by a single rope, by introducing a well known switch ar rangement, and the powerstill fur ther reduced by the weight of the descending car. With a little inge nuity tho men working in tho breast of tho incline can remove their own dirt and ore without leaving their places. Mr. .Burpee has applied for a patent on his invention, and in tends to make anangements to have tho car manufactured extensively and introduced. The car has had a practical test and found to be superior to anything of the sort previously used. The in ventor intends using tho car shown us on some mines hi owns on Treas ury mountain, in the Rock Creek district. . l,OCAl. Srt,lVTKUH. Unclaimed telegrams: F. F. Thomas, T. l'oung.

Notwithstanding the continued fa vorable developments in the mines in and ar.mnd Tombstone, there Is a'great dearth of news and the town is exceedingly quiet. An Hfiiciul map of Southern Arizona and the Mexican states of Sonora, Chihua hua, Sinaloa and Durango lias been pre pared for the Mining Record, und is now for sale at Robertson's bookstore. The map is one of the best of the kind and those desiring reliable information will do well to consult this drawing. Spring fever is the prevalent disease in Tombstone at the present time. Thus far there have been no fatal cases. The treat ment most in vogue Is u horse and pack or wagon and a few weeks' rations, and a start for the mountains or Mexico. The disease U sure to succumb, to a few weeks of this treatment. An interesting surgical operation was performed upon one of our prominent young attorneys a day or two since, a full report of which will appear in the next number of the London Lancet. It was of that delicate and moral (not to say relig ious) character which should be touched upon lightly by that eminent medical journal, in order to soare the young man's feelings. The city council seems to have dropped the sewerage question. That this towu needs a system of sewerage, such as will render the people tree from the liability of maladies us generate in ccss-pools and the like, is self-evident. The only point to be determined is just the plan to adopt and how to meet it. Let .the committee appointed by the council receive such sug- gestions as (he citizens may have to make, and, then act accordingly. The Ei'itawi has been favored with a Roster of Posts of the Grand Army of the Republic, Department of California, to which department Arizona belongs. There aie 41 posts, of which Burnside, Tomb stone, A. T., is 3G on the list. Tucson's post is Negley, No. 33. The objects of the Grand Army of the Republic are social, fraternal and beneficiary, and strictly nnn partizan.

ThiM Time the Thunderbolt of lntk KtrikVM the mlier -tile. The people of Tombstone were startled this morning wilh a report from Tucson that Frank Stillwcll, u will known per sonage in this county as late deputy sheriff al Bisbce and as one ot the alleged Bisbee st:.ge robbers, ns tdso suspected of having killed an oldumn at the Bronkow mine same two or three years ago, had beeu found dead from the effects of a charge of buckshot, near the Porter house, at the de pot in Tucson. By u special dispatch to the EriTArn, in another column, the re port is confirmed and the full, particular! given, so far as at present known. The dispatch is In error when it state; that the remains of Morgan Earp were on the train. It thould have been that Virgil W. Earp and wife were on the train, they having left Tombstone for Colton, yester day. As the dispatch says, there ire two theories of the killing here as at Tucson. One is, that the comrades of Stilwell, (ear ing that he might turn states evidence, have silenced him; and others, that it is the work of the incensed Earp brothers for the assassination of Morgan, it being stated that there is positive cvjdence that Stilwell was In Tombstone Saturday night at the time Morgan Earp was muidered, and that he rode into Tucson on horseback on Sunday, lu either case his taking off verities the say ing that " the way of the transgressor is hard."
