Louis & Salt Kriincisco road intefered somewhat with the plan of extension agreed upon. The companies agreed to reduce the total .siib-criptiou to $0,000,0011 for tlio vestern division fiom Altiuqtieniuu westward, and iUU0,00l) tor tbo central division, from Vii)ii in to Albuquerque It is uudersstood that this amount is bxed upon under the original plan, and the official circulars, regarding the Atlantic & Paci lie, says that one tliiul of tiin total amount is appoitioned to tlio St. Louis & San francNco company's; one-third to th'- Atchi son, Topekn & Santa Fe, and the other third to the financial agents, Seligmaii & Co. The agreement nro vides that this money is to be applied to building the ro.nl to the Colorado river. The agreement does not, sin gularly enough, lis the location in Arizona and California, but merely stipulates iliey sli.ill be upon this most direct lino between pie.sent end of tlio Atlantic & Pacific and .Mohave or tlio Southern Pacific. White river is fixed oi) as the tiomin il point of junction. Tiie agreement fails to stipulate that tins approaching roads shall connect there or that the South ern Pacific shall be extended to White River, but states that the Southern Pacific railway will build to the west bank of the river. Tlio agreement defers the settlement of the lip-citable question of the inter l)ange of tr.tllic until some future date. Another singular provision of the agreement is that if requested by iho Atlantic & Pacific company to do so, the southern Pa cific company shall execute a guai auteo of :25 per cent on all gro its ceipts from all interchanged business of that company mid its connections to and from (.aliforma points, a d that it is further piovided that it is to be upon precisely the same tonus as apply to t rallies with the t. Louis & San Francisco and Atcluso , To peka &, Santa Fe companies. It is also stipulated that tile. St. Louis & San Francisco company is to givn a 'iniilar gunrantt e, on all traffic interchanged between it and tiie central division. This, af ter all, am units only to a truce. There is nothing in this agreement about a Sin Francisco oi tlct for the Atlantic & P,iuili-, and uotliiuir to prevent the latter com pany, if it shall fail to secure satis factory terms in future settlements as provided for, from extending its line from tlio Coloja.lo liver to San Francisco, or, for that muter, to the Pacific ocean at any otiier point.

That a special tax for the support of the public schools would be voted there can bo no questnn. The re ports that have gone abroad concern ing the unsettled state of Tombstone Imvo been of groat injury to this (J-Mninunity. If further, added to this, went forth the statement that Tombstone could not support its pub lic schools, it would indeed be a sad following to what has alreadv trans pired, seiviiiL' to substantiate halm fill, preconceived notions. Within the past year this schools have considerably more than doubled in sizo. The additional expenses which such an imreisis has rendeied necessary hive caus-d an uulooked fir and unprepared-for drain upon this district's appori umetit It has not only required the employment of additi 'iial eachcrs, with the piymeul of their aa'.uies, hut il has also neces sitated thu rental of buildings to ao commodate the growing school. These buildings have hud to be fur malted witli seats, desks, stoves, blackboards, and other school fix tures. To have sustained the school ct a year ago the ordinary provisions were sulliuiuiitly amnle; but the ex traordinary expenses to which the board of educati.jn have been sub jected, to meet an extraordinary growth of our schools, have reii de:ed a special tax a matter of imperative necessity; or the cIjs ing of the schools till Jtutiary next- a p. riod of eight months. The peo ple of Tombstone will n t, we are confident, accent this latter alterna tive. Imt I. in ApiiranriatiiiiiM From the I'licaa ('ill, n, A I'll I ti. As .to example ol tin; treatment, of thu Indians by the government the foil living acti n of the senate in coiistdernii; the lu.tiae lndi:u -ijii'ro pri.ttiou bill may be of some interest. In reading the bill an amendment was m nle to strike out the following lines: "Collecting and su sisting Apa dies and oilier Indians of Aiizoua and Js'ew Mexico; For this amount, to subsist and properly cure lor the Apaches and other Indians in Aiiz i ua and ew- Mexico who have been or may bo collected on reservations in New Mexico or Arizona, l!I0, 000;" And in lieu thereof to insert: "P or subsisting ami carrying lor the Apacbe.s and other Indians of tiie San C.tilos reservation in Arizo na; For this ainouii , for subsistence, $'410,000; for civilization and in btiuctiou, including pay for India:: labor, $'40,000; for annuity, gootU, ao-iiciiltur.il implements, seeds and supplies, :5."),0U0; for pay in cm ployes, 10,000; in nil, S'473,000." Another clause was made to lead: 'Incidental expenses of Indian service in Arizona: For general in cidental expenses of the Indian ser vice, including traveling expenses ol agefts in Aiizoua, support, civilizt tion aid instruction of Indians at tin Colorado River and Puna and Mari ci'p.i agencies, IG,0i0; and pay of employes at same agencies, S,0n0; in all,' $44 000. ' These amendments were concurred in by the senate and the bill passed One feature of the appropriation bill will sttike this Arizona reader as quite absurd. While the inhuman, bloodthirsty and rebellious Apaches at Sin Carlos are given the snug lit tle annuity of '47.,000, the niori peaceable, fiieudly and progressiva tiibes whose nvm'iers are lirgely in excess of the Apaches, an- to leceivi but a small fraction of the i'44,000 appropriated. To the Indians them selves it would seem like paying- a pn miiim for th scalps v. f white peo ple, for those to whom so little i givt n are tins, friends and allies of the whites, while tlio Apaches at San Carlos are hostile. It looks like obeying the scii, tutu! injunction which siys something about lovinir y our enemies and doing good to those that injur'! yon, but that holy law does not exclude one's friends from all paiticipttion in one's good deeds As Tin: twin is bent so the tree in Cjiues.

Whitelaw Heid in Lexington Ave.," in which ihe spacious and elegant residence of that gentleman is described, es pecially the library and editorial room. "Sitting in the library, in a comfortable suit of tweeds, Mr. Held goes through his work with a rapidity and precision remarkable to behold. In the main, Mr. lleid follows the advice of his dear old fr end, pastor and master, Mr. Horace Greely, who told him when he handed linn the reins, "The golden rule of editing is to do nothing yourself that you can get any one else to do for you." And the Tribune has an admirable stair of letter writers; but the editor sometimes feels the divine alllatus, anil will write his leder himself. A little bit of news, importiint in Its political bearing, has been telegraph ed from Washington, or a startling tele ram has come from Europe, aud Mr. Reed goes to the telephone. His first message is is, "Send steno grapher to instrument," and this be ing done, lie dictates his leading ar ticle through the telephone. This is the work, perhaps, of an hour and a half; and then comes the reading and correction of the proof, also through the telephone, which works perfectly. For reasons which will be understood by all who havo dic tated 'copy,' Mr. Heed prefers, when there is ample time, to write his arti cle first anil then dictate it by tele phone; but, as a rule, there is 2ittle time to spare. Thus the news' is sent from the office, the aitiule dic tated, and the proof corrected all by telephone. Those who know the se v re heats an colds of New York City will appreciate thu great saving of fiiction by this method of editing by telephone, by which the editor is enabled to sit "in his library, in his own house and by his 'ain iiresHe,' and yet hold the conduct of his pa per in his hand. It is a system, of course, which requires good assistant editors and sub editors, but these Mr. Heed has. Hallaiid Smith was installed as city editor of the New Vork Herald last Saturday. Tho Philadelphia Press speaks of him as ''the talented young jouruilist of tho West." When Smith w nt to New York fiom Louisville, he called upon Whitelaw Hem at the Tribune office in search of employment. Heid superciliously told him his abilities had undoubt edly been impaired by association with western journalism, but he would give him fifteen dollars a week for his services. Mr. Smith conclud ed not to go to work for any such wages. He stepped over to the World office and accepted the city editorship at one hundred dollars per week. For some time past Meighen has been city editor of the Heiald and he was tho special favorite of (Jonnery, the managing euttor; it is not known how he came to be sup planted by Smith. The position, in cluding perquisites, is supposed to be worth about one hundred and fifty dollars a week. Denver Tri bune. - . In the canton of Genevs there were 115 butchers' shops, I'i'i bakers' shops, 420 grocers' shops, and 1,000 drinking shops. Gladstone says the.

It seems probnb'cthat the public schools will have to close at the end of the present month, and the indications are that they will remain so until next January. In the meanwhile the term of office of the present board of directors will have expired, and it will be just as well if about two of that board sign their death warrant as trustee, tor the community desire hereafter men of ability at the head of so important an in stitution as the public school.

It Is the purpose of the committee to push the edifice to cumplc tion and finish aud furnish il in a very handsome sty.e. Tombstone will tlcE have four churches, and as soon as the repairs are inado in the Presbyterian and finished in the Catholic church, all of Ilium will be very cieditable to the city. The committee on silutedeservu par ticuhr credit for their enterprise, in car, r, ing out their portion of the programme. Only one sm-i'.l cannon could be pro cured, but llie boys, not to be baffled, ob tained beveral blacksmith anvils and boarding an express w.agou with their aitilciy went out; and took a position at the east entrance of tu3 town. As the conveyances of General Sherman and parly approached town tho boys "let go" their guns aud waked the echoes for miles around by their dcafenid thunder. A Finn was discovered in theotSce cf lite county treasurer by Deputy Sher.tf llreakeurldge last night about 9 :45 o'clock. He broke in the door, and with the assists mice of a few others who came to the .res- cue, quickly put out the flames. No dam age was -lone except to the walls and some of the furniture. Several books vtere ciancd, but the papers burned were not ot impoitauce. It is supposed that the tire originated from a cigarette stump thrown on a pile ot waste paper.

Whkn school trustees visit their school in a body it Is very pleasing to have soma fluent and eloquent gentleman among lliem who can unhesitatingly rise and de liver an elegant impromptu speech. The board of this city arc paiticularly favored in this respect, and that one of the direc tors wlio hails from Dutchland does not need a n'c.oud call to insure a response frotu him. The addresses tn the pupTIa by thu noble appearing gentleman, who knows nothing of his own tongue anil less of the English, are wonderfully edifjilflg, aniltUo concel.ed ass takes all the ridicule ot the children as applause. Almost a serious runaway happened last night on Allen street. Just as General Sherman had finished his address to llw people, the coach arrived and was drivin j through the crowd when the cheering com., menced, which so frighiojed the horses, I htit they became unmanageable and whirling mound almost overturning tb stage, the excited steeds dashed madly down the street.
