it is a somewhat paradoxical dec
laration that "we uust have peace if
Jve have to tight for it." Neverthe
less, emergencies sometime exist in
human affairs whichgivo a peculiar
fitness to suoh a declaration. The
recent ovents in Cochise county make
it incumbent upon not only officials,
Jmt all good citizens as well, to take
"such-positive measures as will speed
Hybrid this cection of that murderous,
thieving element whioh have made
ua"a reproach before tho world and
so seriously retarded tho industry
and progress of our county. It is a
great satisfaction to know that the
people have finally roused themselves
to such action, for the will of Un
people is always supreme, and hence
we confidently look for an era of
peace and security, for a time ir the
near future when. the capitalist and
stranger will no longer hesitate to
invest or even visit.
Gov. F. A. Tritle has just spent a
week in our midst, and has thorough
ly investigated the situation, and wo
believe understands it in all its
tihases. Havincr satisfied himself
upon tho various points in the com
plications, he has made arrangements
with United States Deputy Marshal
J. H. Jackson to have a posso of men
organized to bo used at once if re
quired, and also to raise a militia
company to bo used as rangers, if
congress appropriates the necessary
money. In itddition to the forego
ing, a committee of citizens has been
appointed to organize another militia
company. Another committee of cit
izens was appointed to raise money
to bo usfid in case tho militia is or
dered into service. If congress makes
an appropriation then such subscrip
tious are to be refunded.
The governor has sent a communi
cation to tho president asking him to
requestcougress to appropriate $150,-
000, to be used for the protection ol
the southern border of the territory,
and to assist the civil authorities in
enforcing the law.
Tho foregoing is a brief outline of
the measures thus far inaugurated
by tho governor for the protection of
life aud propel ty in our midst. It
now remains to be seen if tho people
will manfully put their shoulders to
the wheel and assist in evolving order
out of the present chaos. Believing
that a more healthy'pub!io sentiment
exist to-day than there did a few
months ago, wo do not anticipate any
holding back on tho part of good
citizens, iu sustaining the governor
in the position he has taken to
straighten out our affaiis. Time

Tho mayor and common council
hold a special meeting last Saturday
evening to take steps for tho proper
reception of General Sherman, who
has sigified his intention to be iu
Tombstone at somo timo between
the sixth and eighth of tho present
month. Should ho arrive hero on
the sixth that will bo on Thursday,
but if he is dolayed so lata as the
eighth that will be 'on Saturday.
Thus, in either event, tho timo is
near at hand, and what is done must
be done speedily. A committee of
100 citjzens was appointed to meet
at tho court house at seven o'clock
this evening. Whatever course the
committee decide upon, tho plan fot
tho entertainment of our distinguish
ed guest should bo so laid that it can
be carried into execution at a mo
ment's notice, for it is more than
probable that he will drop down into
our midst at "a day anil hour thai
no man knoweth," and it is not prob
able, iu the light of his reply to the
mayor of Tucson, which is published
in another column, that ho will give
any extra timo hero for making
ready tho festive board. Wo trust
tho reception will be on a scale be
fitiug the great mining center ol
Arizona, and that our people will all
join iu doing honor to tho general of
tho nation's army.
The Hon. A. A. Sargout, minister
to Germany, was dined and wined
by Governor Stanford, at his Califor
nia street palaoc, on Thursday even
ing last. There wero a largo num
ber of the most prominent republi
cans present, who havo long been
Mr. Sargent's political admirers.
This banquet was very much iu the
nature of a funeral .reception, for the
reason that Sargent goes to his polit
ical tomb when he goes to the court
of Berlin. As seorelary pf tho iu
toriof, Mr. Sargent would havo been
at homo, where be Gould havo still
dabbled in tho "filthy pool of poli
tics," and maintained liis prestige in
Californiu as an active campaign
manager. It was most meet and fit
ting thnt'Governor Star.ford should
banquet Mr. Sargent, who, during
his senatorial career, was a faithful
servant to the railroad magnate.

The Itullion company aro putting in

There has never been any enterprise in
augurated in Tombstone that was pushed
fiom its Inception to its completion to
conipaie with the Tombstone Water, Mill
and Lumber company's works for furnish
ing this city with au abundant and cheap
water supply. By nost people Ihe scheme
or pumping water from the wells at Water
vale was looked upon as impracticable
First, tlicro would not be water enough to
supply ilie city, and second, it would cost
so much to pump the water that it could
.iot be sold at paying rates to the company
and living rates to the consumers. These
objections were purely fallacious. The
water supply so far as tested is not less
than 200,000 gallons in twenty four hours,
and the cost of pumping is so low that the
tirst move that the company made upon
getting its miins laid throughout the city
was to reduce rates just one-half, or Irom
one cent per gallon lo one-half cent per
gallon. This was not the only
bent-Ill that acciued to our people. The
water was so cheap and abundant that it
Ixcame possible to sprinkle the streets ai.d
thus rid the city of the blinding clouds ol
diM from which so much discomfort had
been exnerienccd previously. In the two
or three incipient fiit-s that have been ex
perienced binco Ihe Tombstone company's
mains and hydrants were put In, (lie peo
pie have felt the benefit ip a most impor
tant manner, and appreciate the works
very highly. Mr. Levericige, the principal
owner and general manager, feeling the
importance of having a pump in reserve
to guard against accidents, has received a
new SaO.OOO gallon Worthington com
pi und pump, which was set in motion
last Thursday, and is accomplishing won
duis iu the way of increasing the pump
ing cap icity iu case of nfci This pump
weighs 7'200 pounds, and cost, laid down
at the works, $2,780. When an Epitaph
reporter was at the works on Sunday, it
was running on 40 pounds of steam, o0
strokes to the minute, and pumping 5,000
gallons per hour. Ihe piessure gauge on
the main leading to the teservoir indicated
100 pounds pressure persquare inch. Atthe
teservoir there was an uninterrupted flow
of water as clear as ciystal and co.d as the
best well water can be. In case of a lire,
such cs the one of last June, this pump
can be run to its full capacity and furnish
an uninterrupted supply of over 11,000
gallons an hour, in addition to what the
reservoir holds at the commencement, to
tlrain fiom it. It will be seen by tho fore
going that the Tombstone Water, Mill and
Lumber cmnp tny more th in keep even
with every cemand made upon them.

Tho San Francisco Daily Report,
of March .30, contai.is the following,
which a majority of our people begin
to realize too well:
It is well authenticated that the
Earps and their immediate following
passed Albuquerque on the 28th in
stant, bound east. Thev have, in all
probability, left Arizona for good,
and will not bo seen in that territory
again. This is the wisest course
they could pursue. Their lives were
not safe for a moment in Tombstone,
even if they had given themselves
up to the authorities, for tho sheriff
is inimical to them, .and they felt that
in his hands they would be entirely
at tho mercy of the cowboys. Tho
E.irps aro brave men and did good
work in A'izona in tho preservation
of law; and it is a pity tiiat they
were not backed by the community
in their efforts to suppress the law
Jess element that through murder
and robbery aro retarding the devel
opment of the territory.

Iterlproclty Treaty with .Mexico.
From the El Paf o Herald.
Lte dispatches from Washington
assure us that Mr. Romero, tho new
Mexican minister, favors a reciproc
ity treaty between the two republics.
At the sumo time it is asserted that
bis powers to cuter into negotiations
with the state department "are lim
ited by certain instructions."
There is no Mexican statesman
living who so wed understands the
financial condition of his govern
ment as does Mr. Romero. He has
several times been secretary of the
tederal treasury, and has been iu
public life nearly thirty years; thus
President Gonzales could not find,
throughout the wide limits of the
Mexican republic, a statesman more
competent to conduct any delicate
What Mr. Romero's instructions
concerning the proposed treaty are,
it would be difficult to imagine at
present, but one thing is very cer
tain, the in.er-sts of his government
and his people will not suffer at his
hauls, for ho is one of the most as
tuto and wily diplomats on the con
tinnt. Tho gentleman's own opinion re
garding a reciprocity treaty with us
tris already been given to the world.
He was interviewed in Mexico, by a
representative of the Boston Herald,
ami on that occasion said plainly,
"That such a treaty would be dim
cult ol realization, for Mexico could
not well suffer a serious diminu
ation of her customs revenue, while
no small portion of those revenues
accrue from the established duties
on dry goods, etc. This fact at once
raises an insurmountaole barrier to
the negotiation of a reciprocity treaty
on the terms anticipated, and pro
posed by tho free trade element in
the North, while it must not be for
gotten that several of Mexico's most
important exports, such as coffee, for
instance, are already on our free list.
But while Mexico will naturally
demand certain restrictions against
complete reciprocity, this section has
no less serious objections to present
to such negotiations. Two principal
agricultural industries the cultiva
tion of rice and sugar would be
seriously, menaced, if not utterly
ruined in such event.
While it is not probable that these
interests would be endangered for two
or three years, we cannot forget the
result that flowed from the Hawaiian
treaty. Tho moment that reciprocity
became an established fact, English
and .Spanish capital would flow into
Mexico, English and Spanish plant
crs would cultivate the vast area of
sugar and rice land lying contiguous
to the Gould and Telfeiier railroads,
nor would it be lonir before 'our coun
try would beflooded with the cheap
ly proddoed sugar of Mexico.
It is clearly seen, then, that both
this country aud Mexico has serious
objections to t le negotiation of a lit
eral reciprocity treaty. The South
cannot look coldly on and permit the
destruction of two of her most flour
ishing agricultural interests, while
Mexico can suffer nc great diminu
ation of her revenue. It is diffi
cult, under thee embarrassing cir
cumstances, to imagine how such a
treaty as that demanded by the free
traders of this country can bo nego
tiated. But there is no reason why a com
mercial treaty, which might greatly
benefit both countries, should not be
arranged. Some happy medium that
.vould menace the interests of nei
ther people might be hit upon where
by discrimination in favor of the ex
ports of Mexico and the manufac
tures of this country mig t be made,
and tho two flourishing republics

Early in tho history of Nebraska,
says the Boomerang, there was a
spirit of religious intolerance in the
neighborhood of Fremont that made
the warfare of the pioneer Christian
red hot combat at times.
Tho Germans of Fremont got a
preacher in those days who could
round up the.sinner in two different
languages. Ho spoke equally well
iu English and German, aud iu order
to evade a deadly war among tho
members of his fold he used to be
seech the people to flee from the
wrath tocotno alternately in English
At last, however, those who pre
ferred the German gospel thought
they were in the majority, and asked
that the imported variety of salvation
be used altogether.
This created a feeling on the part
of those who were paying their
money for a Yankee sermon bi week
ly, and for a time Zion languished.
Tho following Sunday, the sermon,
according to schedule was to be de
livered iu English, but after singing,
" Jesus, Lover of my Soul," and of
fering a short prayer, the preacher
turned loose in an earnest and tear
ful appeal in the German language,
which about one-halt of the congre
Cation co ldn't understand a word of.
They sat thoro a fow moinmtSj till
they saw that the preacher had de
clared himself in favor of the other
side, and then there was music by
tho entire choir.
The congreation had prepared for
an emergency of this kind, and every
man had a Cottonwood club under his
coat-tail. When the tocsm of war
sounded, the destructive hoe handle
and concealed bed-slat camo to the

An old man who lived down the
track and was on probation had his
nose shattered by a blow from ' Songs
of the Sanctuary," and a school
teacher who had recently experienced
a change of heart, got a clip under the
ear with tho organ stool.
Finally tho German element got
the bulge on tho English speaking
portion of tho congregation, and
peace perched upon their banner.
Tho vanquished Yankees went home,
and after the wreck had been straight

into executive session, and after that

it pretty lonesome attending divine

Calumet & Ileclu.
Tho following aneedcto is related
by a traveler, of the singular dis.cov.
ery -jf what is now the great Calumet
& Hecla copper mine:
Some eighteen or twenty years
ago, an old log building used .as a
hotel, stood near this place, kept by
a half-breed Indian. Parties ex
ploring tho country stopped at tho
house for dinner. The landlord
went out to capture a small pig to
roast. Having some difficulty in
catching it one of the parties pro
posed to shoot it. In accordance
with tho proposition he started in
pursuit of the pig which ran under
some brush growing near; in his
haste to overtake the pig, a shallow
pit, partly concealed by brush and
leaves, escaped his notice. In this
pit ,the pig hid itself. In searching
about for the pig the man fell into
the pit, receiving light injuries by
the fall, and feeling some hard sub
stance under tho leaves, commenced
to remove the rubbish, and found
small boulders of great weight for
their size. An investigation with a
jack-knife showed them to bo of pure
copper. Thus the credit of finding
the richest copper mine in the world
belongs to a pig. So tho story goes
iu this country.

-Speaking of salaries, the Broad
way tabernacle has advanced the pas
tor (Taylor) to $16,000, which is the
largest clerical salary in New York.
This is a judicious method of keep
ing him from accepting any other
call. Trinity has been giving its
rector (Dix) $12,000 and a Jiouso
worth 85,OuO a year. He will Vob'--ably
be advanced to $20,000. John
Hail has $10,000, but will soon bo
advanced in a proportionate degree.
Paxton, formerly of Washinton, has
been called by one of our opulent
Presbyterian churches at $12,000 a
year. One Baptist preacher (McAr
thur) is said to be equally well paid,
while two of this 'denomination
(Bndgeman and Armitage) have each
$10,000. Others receive from $G,000
down to one-half that sum.
General KliermatiV Tour Gaaymas
Tucson, April 3. General Sher
man and party reached Fort Grant
on the 1st instant and left on the 3d
for Fort Thomas, from thence they
gi to the San Carlos Indian agency.
Tho general telegraphs to the mayor
of Tucson that it is impossible for
him to fix the day of his arrival here,
for the reason that he will first visit
Uuachuca and TombfUone. He
states that his object in visiting is to
see the actual condition of affairs,
and not so much to make any imme
diate changes but to be prepared to
advise congress and the war depart
ment hereafter. On his arrival here
he will take quarters at a hotel.
Ho will visit Fort LowpII and see,
in iiis own way, all tho changes
since his last visit. He will re
main here twenty-four hours and
then go to Maricopa and Fort Mc
Dowell. Ho thinks he will know
the geography and existing resources
of Arizona before he is done. Gen-
oral Willcox and staff accompany
him throughout the territory.
Information from Guaymas is to
the effect that there are three vessels
there unloading raUroad ties, and
three more are expected. Tho rail
road company is now working from
both ends and will probably be com
pleted tot 'alabasas, Arizona, by the
1st of May.
The weather in Arizona cloudy
with indications of rain.

Dick Fellows, tho famous stage rob
ber, escaped from the county jail
this mornitifr about 9 o'clock. Dep
uty Sheriff George Sherman had oc
casion to enter the robber's cell,
when Fellows knocked him down,
took his pistol and left the jail.
Sherman's wife witnessed tho affair
and called loudly for help, but no
one happened to be in the vicinity.
Fellows started for the mountains
back of town. Sheriff Sherman im
mediately organized a party and
started in pursuit. He is armed with
a bulldosr pistol andviioL-manacled.
