The present state of lawlessness in Cochise county. is somothing mos deplorable. It reminds ono forcibly of tho Kansas border troubles of twenty years ago. Law-abiding-citizens ask one another where the mat ter is going to end? All agree in one thing, and that is that law and order must bo maintained. Tho event of yesterday, notwithstanding it cost tho life of ono good man, is a step that reflects great credit upon Messrs. Harley and Breakenridgo and the special deputies who took part therein, and tho opinion has been very freely expressed by our best citi zens, that had the same heroic meas ures been adopted one year ago by the sheriff, the present deplorable state of affairs could not now have existed. Mr. Harley believes that he is how on the right track to com pletely unravel the mystery of tho Peel assassination, and he is follow ing up tho slender threads in his pos session with a determination to get at the bottom of tho affair and bring the guilty ones to a deserved pun ishment. It is to bo hoped that tho beginning of the end has at last been readied. Upon one point all will agree, and that is that life and prop erty must bo mado as secure in Co chise county as in any other part of tho territory, even if tho last bad man has to travel tho road that Hunt and Grounds wero made to go yesterday. The value of metropolitan jour nals is somothing marvelous. Tho New York Sun is represented by 350 shares of stock of which one share was sold the other day for 4,100. This puts tho valuo of the whole $1,400,035 not a bad esti mate for a small daily paper. But this sum docs not represent tho value. This single share was not hid up to tho real value. Tho actual price of tho Sun stock is $5,000 per share, which brings tho valuo of the entiro interest up to 81,750,500. Five thousand dollars per share is Ave times more than par value, which is 8 1,000 per share. For yoars tho Sun has pad five per cent dividends on tho stock; so that one share brings to the holder 8500 per year. At this rate of interest, $5,000 per sharo is not a high price. Mr. Chas. Dana's income from salary and inter est on stocks is said to bo 875,000 peryear, and Mr. England's, the pub lisher, is quite large. Can any one explain tho lack of cordiality in the Nugget as regards our govenor? It surely cannot be on account of anything he has dono since he was installed in olliec, unless it be because ho has expressed a firm determination to put down tho lawless element infesting tins country, in which event the Nugget might lose some warm 'supporters. According to tho Bodie Free Press of March 25, a most important development has been made, in the Noonday mines, at a depth of 612 foot. Thoro is a 4-foot vein of rich ore at a depth of 61)8 feet which av erages 73.19, and at 712 feet tho average is $92.30. Tho Press says: " tho general expression of opinion among visitors is to tho effect that the development, considering its depth and position at the south end of the. camp, is the most important that has been mado for a long time." Tub San Juan Herald reports that a rich discovery of tin has been found in the " Gnome " lode, situated in the American basin, on the Lake fork of tho Gunnison and Hinsdale county, just beyond tho San Juan county line. A poor prospector named James Dooy commenced work on tho mino in 1874. Tho oro is of two kinds leaf tin, and English or silver tin, carrying also 50 ounces of silver ana fivo ounces of gold. The vein is 12 feet wide, and shows on the surfaco for 1500 feet. Tho oro is pronounced by experts in Denver, Pueblo and Washington tho richest tin oi e ever discovered in this country. On this bright, spring day we vio late no confidence in saying it will not be a difficult matter to "down"' Bchau and Woods or their pi oxics in tho noxt campaign. Pasto this in your hat. OKXVKIt JHMMi KXl'OHITIOX. It is a settled fact that Denver, Colorado, is to have a mining expo sition to open on the first of August. Tho cost of the main building will bo $150,000, with other improve ments estimated at 50,000. Tho general plan of the building closely resembles the now National Museum at Washington, D. C, and the por tion to bo completed and occupied this year will bo a cruciform, with a frontage of 500 feet and a depth of 312 feot. These measuioments will convoy an approximate idea of tho extent and importance attached to the exposition. Arizona ought to bo largely represented at this mineralo gic.il show, and particularly Cochise county. It will, no doubt, have an effect similar to the late cotton ex position at Atlanta, Georgia, and will dravv thousands of capitalists from all parts of the United States to wit ness the rare collection of minerals, improved machinery, and methods of treatment of ores there on exhibition, in which event the mining industry will be greatly stimulated by tho in fusion of now capital. It is generally conceded by those best informed in relation to tho mines throughout Cochiso county that wo have as yet only just begun tho work ofdovelopment. Out of thousands of promising locations and prospects there are but about :i dozen produc ing mines, where there ought to be a hundred or more, allowing for tho usual ratio of barren ledges. These are Grand Central, Contention, Head Center, Girard, Good Enough, Tough Nut, West Side, Ingersoll, Stonewall, Old Guard, Vizina and Copper Queen. Tn this list wo have only included those mines that are largo and regular bullion or ore producers. There are scores of other mines in and around Tombstone and Bisbee, to say nothing of the Hua chucas, Swisshelms, Chiricahuas, Dos Cabezas, Winchester, Yellowstone, Cochise, Dragoons and Turquois that might he put upon a paying basis at an early day, wero they worked in a systematto manner like thoso first named. It is this class of mines that would bo greatly benefitted by a rep resentation at the Denver exposition, and stops should be taken among tho mine owners to have them repre sented. The mino owners are not the only ones that would he benefitted by such a movement. Every merchant and mechanic, all professional men and laborers would equally feel tho stimulation wrought by tho infusion of new life and more capital into mining enterprises. The stockraiser and ranchman would bo equally ben efitted with tho balance. If tho pro ductive mines in Tombstone are to day sufficient to suppotta population of six thousand people, as many more would double tho population and make tho valuo ef property cor lespondingly greater. These are in controvertible facts, and facts that should aronso our business men to early action on this subject. A moot ing should be called by our most prominent men to consider this" sub ject and take steps for a concert of action so that a creditable exhibit mav be mado. A man named Peter Dolaml killed n young German unmeel Peter Smith, with a poker, in Cochise county on the 21st inst , and so our neighbor keeps ahead of us. (JovEiisoii Trltlo w as last night tendered a grant! reception by the cituens of Tomb stoue. '1 he affair took place at tho comt house. All the principal cilicns partici pated, nn.l thus Tombstone has got nltfud of us again. The above grouping of items occurred in the same order in the Arizona (Tucson) Daily Star of jesterday. The flrbt, pie. sumably a fact, is a matter that no good citizen of this county orterritoiy need care to bu considered "ahead of," hut the second is an event that the people of Tombstone and vicinity may Justly feel a manly pride in, and more especially as the reception of a live governor has never bctorc fallen to our lot. Tucson, usually ahead in affairs of this kind, has evidently lost its grip or is taking a long rest. Perhaps tho selec tion of Mr. Tritlo as governor was not to Tucson's liking. 'Who knows! Ketuhucans rally. There will bo n meeting of the Tombstone Republican club at the district court room at 7:30 o'clock this evening, for tho purpose of perfecting the organization. All members ore requested to be present, "Ucpublicans who have not vet sigued the roll should come forward and do so at once. KPMOBSt JUUlOltfr ! Of Deeds that are Dark and t'l lines that are Foul. Early this morning; a report was circu lated upon tho f-t reels that a man had been killed at Soldiers' "Holes, in Sulphur Spring valley, last night. But little heed was paid to it, as no person could be found who would father the report as a fiet. About 11 o'clock, however, ati Epitaph to portcr met a gentleman of well known re. liability and integrity, who iu formed him hat lie had seen a man lrom Soldiers' Holes who s lid that a man had really been killed there during the night, in a druuken ow. These were all the particulars that could bo learned. The man's name who brought iu the icport was not obtained, therefore there was no clue to follow tho nan up and get at the facts of the case. ANOTIIElt ONE. Later, Mr. W. B. Williams met u man on 1 orseback who had just come in Horn fcycamoie springs, who told him that a I ody had been found near the spiings, or between there and South Pass. .Mr. Wil liams asked fr the particulars and was answered that full paiticulars would soon be here with the holy. If there, is any truth in citlfer one or both of these re ports It may bo learned betore the Epi T.pn goes to press, in which eventthe par ticulars will bo given. Later. Mr. Walker, superintendent of the Svcamore Spring Watct company, saw parties who came in ft om the spiiugsthis morning and they contiaUlcted the report. This fortunately settles one rumor, and now if some one would come along and authoritatively contradict and settle the one from Soldiers' Holes the community would be most heartily thankful. .VXD NTIIX AXOTIII.K An OldMnn Murdered near St. Davids. After the EriTAPH went to press last evening, word was brought from Conten tion of the murder of an old man vVho lived across tho San Pedro, opposite St. Davids, the Moimon settlcmentAttoout six or seven miles below Contention. The name of the man was McMenomy. Ho owned a sheep ranch, upon which he was living alouo at the time of his death. He was shot through the head and must have died instantly. It w.ts supposed that he had money, and robbery was the probable cause of the damnable deed. Justice Smith, of Benson, was notllled of the murder and pioceedcd to the spot to hold an inquest, the result of which has not been learned. Influent on . the Itotly of X'cler Miultli. Colore .Juntlee It. Smith nt Contention. Information having been laid before me, J. B. Smith, a justice of the peace in and for township Xo. 1, County of Cochise, that a man, whose name is unknown to rnc at the time, was dead at a lallroad camp on the Babncnninrl creek, and it was sup posed that he came to his death by foul, murder. I immediately staited on the coslruetion train, of the A. T. & S. F. II. It., accompanied hy Dr. J. O. Barney and dtpattmenl Sheriff John BLudwig, hi riv ing ut the camp, where the body lay, and an Inquest w as held on the body, after a cor oner's Jury had be-cu summoned. Several witnesses were sworn and testified, and also, Dr. Barney, w ho made an autopsy of the body. Atler deliberation the jury ren dcred the following verdict We, fhe undersigned coroner's jury cm paneled to determine the cause of Peter Smith's death, do find that he was a native of Germany, about 2.1 j ears of age, and th.tt he camc.to his death from a blow on the back of the head inflicted by a blunt instrument in the hands of Titos Dolantl, on thenight ol thc21n of Match, 1882.

A gentleman who came in across the Sulphur Spring Valley from the Swiss he'.m mountains esterdaj, saw two squads of men driving a band of about fifty head of cattle each, at a ver) tapid rate. They were making acioa the south cud of the valley toward the Swisshelms, having the appearance of ht ing come from the upper San Pedro or lu that diiection. He count ed seven men w ith one baud, but mado no count of those driving the Eecond. He was at such a distance that he could not tell whither they wcte Americans or Mex icans, and what excited his suspicions was the upid late at which the stock were being driven. It is more than probable that the cattle had been smuggled across the border at the south end of the San Jose mountains between San Pcdtoand Fronteras, and the parties wero making for tho tiicndly Chiricahuas, within whose deep cunvons they could hide In case of purult. It is said to be a well known tact that most of the beef consumed it San Cailos comes fiom Mexico, duty free, and is sold to tho contractor at a cones pondingly reduced price. But a small frac tion of the cattle driven from Mexico ever t e ports to the customs officers on the border and pajs Uncle Sain the duty exacted on imported stock. This is more the fault of the government than the people, for the reason tliu customs oflleers are stationed at Ions distances apatt and nt inconvenient distances from the line, as at Charleston for instance, which is twenty-five mi'es fiom the line. Our Solons tit Washington are guilty at times of "saving at the spigot and wasting at tho Lung," our SoDtira bor der being one of the cases in point.

The gentleman h is traveled extensively over the globe and thus has ready matter at hnnd to render his trflk specially lutcrrestiug.

Coroner Matthews' jury, empaneled V ascertain the cause of tho ilealh of John Gillespie," met at 11:23 this morning. a. i.r.wis testified at. follows:, I reside at Chandlei's ranch; am a trader by occupation ; was at tho ranch on the morning of March 29; they call it nine miles from Tombstone, in an easterly direction. After waking up I heard the boys tell solno one that they would not have breakfast for some time and to go to tho other house. I asked w ho was out there, the answer was Jack Allen; some one in the house asked me if I knew w ho it w as, I told them I did not. At that time some one outside called me by name; I aski;d who It was and they replied "Com? out, I want to see you." I got up and went to the cast door and found a man thero With u gun in Ids hand; asked him who I19 was and who was calling me; bo said, who are you, what's your name ?" I told him, and he said, "Well, jou go around there," motioning around the cor ner. As I passed 'round, B'cakeniidge said, "You know mo now !" I said I did At that time the firing commenced at tho east door, wheic I had gone out. I step ped behind one of the trees, BreAenridge was behind another. Some one opened the weit door and shot out of there; Break enridgo filed into the door and I heard something fall; 111 tho meantime a mau, who I found was Allen, ran from the house and'fell down in tho arroyo, some two rods above the trees; some one fired close at me and I took down the arrojo. I am not acquainted with Gillkpie, but I thiiik'itwaTlid who'-etood attliedoor when I went out. We all got in the lower house and they wanted some one to tome to town; I came. The parties in the house that night were Billy Grounds, Hunt, Elli ott, Caldwell and myself; Grounds and Hunt were not in the habit of staying there; I neter saw them theie befoie; hac been there off and on since last fall. 1 know nothing personally of tho killing of Gillespie; I did not fceo it; do not know who commenced the shooting; did not sec him until after 1 came from town. When Grounds and Hunt eime to the ranch they told me that they had botnc business with .Mr. Elliott; he was not theie and they concluded to go to Soldieis' Holes. After caiingthoy started out and returned eirly Tuesday morning, rem lining the remain der of the dry and the following night; they were watchful while they were theie; w cut out a couple of times w ith a field glass ; from the con vers itlon I suppose they thought the officers might ride on them at any time; iieaid them ttlk about writs being out for them. Hunt said he would "just as soon see his grave as the inside of Yuma iui?on." They said for certain chaigesthey would surrender themsehes, but for olheis they would not, as they were not guilty They had come up the San Pedro a few days picvloux, did not men tion ha ing bi en at Charleston on their way up. 1 could not ee the men Gioundn and Hunt at the time the shooting commenced, as it wa dark, but they weie up As I went out one of them, I ihiuk it was Billy Gio'ind", aid, "If they ask jou tell them we aie not in hue." I think Grounds took the wc-t dom and Hunt the cast; Grounds was shot at the west door, and Hunt must hae been at the other where Gillespie was killed, I suppose it was Hunt uho killed him. A lecess'was taken for half an hour. JOHN It. LLLIOTT asswoiu and said: I live at Chandler's ranch; dairyman 'by occupation. I was in the house at the time of the sliooting; started to follow Lewis out of the cast door, but as a man was standing one side of the door with a guu which cocied me, I backed fiom him and went out the west door and got behind a tiee, and at that time the shooting commenced. Tho firing lasted about four minutes ; they fired on my side ol tho houc and I fell flat on the ground. Grounds and Hunt ci'tne to the ranch Tuesday morning when I saw them first; Hunt when he came asked mo to take a message to town for him; he sent a note which I delivered to Chandler; Hunt seemed anxious tint Chandler should come out. Grounds and Hunt were watchful and ecited, us though they appiehcndcd something, hut beatd them sav nothing. Gi omuls afte. being shot was found in the west door on his back; Hunt was found some fite hundrid jaids fiom the house. It was nearly an hour before we found the body of Gillopie. Hunt was close to the east door when I left the house. The case was then laid oter until to monow at 3 o'clock' Mr. Geo. L. Witheis, from St. Louis, has taken rooms at the Cosmopolitan. J. D.

All interesting feature disclosed in the post mortem examination to-day of Billy Grounds, was tho finding of a buck shot partly imbedded in several thick folds of a silk handketchief which the deceased wore at the time Ire was shot, around his neck. The other shots were sent with such force that they penetrated the skull yet this did not p-iss through a thick poi lion of the silk handkerchief. Dr. Goodfe-llow, who made the cxamin itioii, states that in a previous instance a man was shot in the breast through a pocket containing a silk handkerchief, and bullet did not pass through the handkciehief but carried it into the body. A silken armor may be the next inenlion. The case of Pete Spenco was called before Judge Wallaco this morning, and Dr. Goodfel ow testified as to the n.ttuie of the wound by which More in Earp was killed. - Bu,iiY Giounds, alias? Billy tho Kid, the cowboy who was wounded at Chandler's tanch in the fight with (lie deputy sheriff and poesy, jesterday moining, died early this morning at tho hospital. Dr. Geo. E.

It has been stated, verv truly, too, that the law of the napkin is but vaguely understood. It may be said, however, on the start, that custom and gootl breeding have uttered the decree that it is in poor taste to put the napkin in the pocket and carry it away. The rule of etiquette is becoming more and more thoroughly establish ed th.it.the napkin should be left at the house of the host and hostess af ter dinner. There has been a good deal of dis cussion also, upon tho matter of fold ing tho napkin after dinner, and whether it should be so disposed of, or negligently thrown into. the gravy b at. If, however, it can be folded easily, and without attracting too much attention and prolonging tho session for several hours, it should he so wrranged and placed beside the plate, where It may be easily found by tho hostess, and returned to her neighbor from whom she borrowed it for the occasion. If, however, if tho lady of the house is not doing her own work, the napkin may ho carofully jammed into a glob ular wad and fired under tho table, to convoy the idea of utter icckless nes.i and pampered abandon. At tho court of Eugenie, the cus toms of the table were very rigid, and the most prominent guest of II H. II. was liable to get the G. B. if he spread his napkin on his lap and cut his egg in two with a carving knife. The custom was that the napkin should be hung on one knee, itiid the egg busted at the big end and scooped out with a spoon. A prominent Anieiic.111 at her ta ble ono day, in an unguarded mo ment shatfercd the shell of a soft boilded egg with his knife, ami while prv ing it apart both thumbs were enoncously jammed into the true inwardness of tho fruit with so much momentum that the juice took him in the eye, thus blinding him and maddening him to such a degree that he got up and threw the rem nants into the bosom of the hired man plenipotentiary, who stood near the table, scratching his ear with .1 tray. As may readily be supposed, there w.u a painful interim, during which it was hard to tell for five or six minutes whether the prominent American or tho hired man would come out on top, but at last the American with the egg in his eye got the car of the hign priced hired man in among his back teeth, and the honor of our beloved flag was vindicated. FHOM UL.OIIK From tl.e Globe Chronicle, SSI li. ' The lirot thunder-storm of the year to day. i he reverberating pea's struck the ear like old music. Giuliani county makes a good showing in payment of its taxes. The delinquent list footed up only $45. Good for Graham! On a ledge running nearly parallel with the South Pioneer, we ore in formed, at a depth of sixty feet ore has been struck resembling in ap pearance and approaching iu richness that of tho Pioneer. Mr G. W. Sharp reports the find ing of a copper vein, three feet wide, of good ore, near the Gila river, about fifty miles from Globe. Also promising silver prospects iu the same locality, a region not heretofore prospected. The repot t which gained currency on tho streets a day or two since that a large amount of specie had been received through W. F. & Co.'s Ex press for certain mining companies, grew out of the fact tliat the boxes came heavily filled with iron castings for the O. D. Co.'s works. The Centennial mine is taking out 15 or 20 tons of ore a day which as says from $75 to $500. Mr. George Beamish is now in charge of the mine, has had experience, is a prac tical miner, aud says the mine is one of the richest in the district. We may look for developments in this property which will astonish the doubters. A man by the name ot Cornell was killed about 40 miles above baf ford, on the Gila, on Friday night of last week. He was aroused from sleep by the barking of his dogs, and with his man servant went out to the corral, when they were fired upon and Cornell instantly killed, his com panion escaping unhurt. During the day Indian tracks were found near by, and it is supposed tho murder was committed by them. The ma rauders took five horses, but left three along the road, which were claimed by Mexicans. . Jlouaeliold Marrlnec From the Philadelphia Picas. By the terms of a family compact, tnudo at Frankfort iu 183G, sons of the Itothchilds were never to marry outside the narrow circlo of consan guinity. Leopold, the son of Lionel, was tho first to depart from the com pact, but ho married as much money as he possessed, the Perugias being to 1 neste and the riast what Koth- childs are to western Europe. Mar riages in the Rothchild family are stately in ceremonial, and arc the subject of as mn'cli talk as royal matches. Intermarriages with very near relatives is a recognized He brew custom, and even before the compact of Frankfort, was an al most invarianie practice among these millionaire kinsmen. An- selm, the firt head of the Frankfort house, married his niece, the eldest daughter of Kathan. James, the head of ths Paris house, married his brother Solomon's daughtci. Nathan, however, married outside tho family, but he married more millions than he had then made. His astonishing success in London had excited the fear and astonishment of his com patriot, Levi Cohen, one of the then potentates of the Exchange. Cohen suggested a union of the two fam ilies, but after the marriage became alarmed at tho apparent desperate ventures of his son-in law. He pro tested with the arch-speculator, but received for his pains the character istic taunt: '-You have given me but one of your datighers; it would have been a good stroke of business to have given me them all, for they would have died a great deal richer than they ever will be."
