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 will tell. tiK.XKItAL, ttllkUJIW WILL. lUJlC 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. Tins mines owned by Messrs.

The Itullion company aro putting in a bulk head on the 2,200 font lovel to keop the floods from inundating tlieir mine. Tho water will havo to rise 190 feet to reach the bulkhead, and it was expeotcd it would do so in three days.

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.

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.

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 negotiation. 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 bound together by ties of reciprocal interests. . A ltrniinlseuce. 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 and German. 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 front. It was about tho first free-for-all fight in tho West that ever opened with prayer. 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 ened out a little, tho house went into executive session, and after that i ho man who couldn't lead a different life in the German language found it pretty lonesome attending divine worship in that sanctuary. 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.
