ing conies from inside: The state
ment heretofore published with re
ierenco to (lie agreement recently
r.itilied by ttiH Ssiutliern P.tcilic,
Atchison I'opeku & Santa L'V n.ul
lit. ouis & San Fianci co railniiiil
companies in relaton to the ext-iision
of the Allaiilic. &. Pacific lailroad
have failed to iinpait any satisfactory
ii formation as to nature and .sco .e
of the iitr.ingvMuent.s. Tim ainoiiui
of subscription asked for lliu co i -pletimi
of thu Atlantic & I'aeilie to
rfati Francisco vv.ts sixteen millions.
Tlio purchase by (jould mid Hun
tiiigtnti, of t o im.'iest in tin; S .
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.

The Sau Francisco D.i'ly Report

fitting rebuke upon this course of the
Nugget in tlio cowbey troubles:
Thu Tombstone Nuirgct is very
bitter against F. A. Tritle, governor
of Arizona, because that nlli -ial h is
expressed a determination to put
down lawlessness in that territory.
The mission of a newspaper is that
of a conservator of law and order,
.and it should praise, instead of de
nounce mi official who shows a de
terini nt on to preserve law and or
der. ' I ose who knew Mr Tritle in
I Cu.lifo.uia and Nevada for inai)
vears know that ho is a man who is i
for peace, jiistico and the right at any
risk, and the newspaper which an
tngonizes him is on the wro-g tack.
From what we know of (Jovcrnor
Tritle he will not be swerved in the
course of the light, as he understands
it, by either abuse or praise, and tiie
best thing1 the Xuurpct cm do is to
accept tlio new diepeiisation and
raise its voice in the cause of de
cency and order, or abandon the field
to a "newspaper that will have llie
sense to give the interests of the

higher tli ii the org in of t lie cowboys,

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

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
"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

Gen. William T. Sherman, conimandei
of the Amirlcan armies, and suite arrived
in this city last evening about half-past
o'clock amid thu cheeiing of the waiting
multitude of people, the ririugot salutes,
and music by the baud.
For an hour previous to his arrival a
large concourse of citizens had gathered
on A'lcn sued in front of the Graud hotel
(which had. as if by magic, been quickly
decorated wiih tl igs, bunting and lanterns)
eager to catch a glimpse of the great man.
Tins general and party re iched town bt
iwo flx-mulu ambulance conveyances, and
having i cached the main entrance to the
Graud hotel Ihty vveie icceived by the
city council and this committee, ofre
cepttoii who eseoited the distinguished
visitors lo the parlor where a general
hearty handshaking was indulged in by
all present. The general appeared glad to
see so many ready to gieel him and was
very jolly mining the Ihrong. Steppinv
mil upon the balcony of the hotel Muyoi
Carr introduced Gen. Sherman to the large
crowd of people. The guneral said he was
not in a condition lo make a speech, es
pceially as he was quite filled with the
iby dtislot Aiizoua, ami had nothing in
thu way of inoisluie, but he was much
astonished and gieally pleased lo find
such a number oi tine looking, inte.ligeui

yet above ground. He expressed a del p

might be p.iiticul.uly prosperous. After
thanking the people for their kindness

The London Woild contains a
pleasant sketch ot "M.". 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

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

it will be just as well if about two of that
board sign their death warrant as trustee,

ability at the head of so important an in
