Wc do not think tlmt any thought
ful person has Iib-mi takon by stir
pr'so by tho president's veto of the
Gliinosu Immigration bill. As un as
tuto politician ho has beon wrestling
with the question 'or many days,
and has filially decido i that the par
amount interest wis cast of the
Rockies, whoro tho people have not
yet been brought into competition
with coolio labor. Tho unanimous
vote of California and Neva "a count
for nothing whoa weighed in the bill
anco of eastern seiitiinent.ilism upon
this subject. With all tho boastful
iipss of tho newer England over the
staiil old mother across tho Atlantic,
wo fancy that the spirit of self-protection-evinced
by the sturdy ions
of the older England, who have set
tled themselves upon the islands of
Ocoanica, is more in consonance with
the laws of nations than ihis farcical
sacrifico to the spirit of mercantile
greed and impractical piety of thus
who shape the policy of the nation.
In Now Zealand, the influx of Mon
golians, although not so largo and
threatening as to our shores, became
alarming to the people and they,
although dependent upon the parent
country, made a law as strict and
prohibitory as -that jus, vetoed,
which is to-tlay in fu'l fnrce and ef
fect, with ut opposition from either
church or state. Tho result is that
.tho country u saved to tho present
isettlors and their d'.'-co idant- toge
ther with immigrants from kindred
Wo can only attribute this contrast
in action to tho laok of n niscusieal
sentimentality in our breth on across
tio Pacific. I'hey are yet more
nearly allied to the older Kngland,
and have none o1' those fluffy notions
of tho newer England. A nation
that has been bluffed and beaten time
out of mind by a few thousand po
lyg.tmists is not just the one to put
its hand upon tho throttle valve and
down brakes upon so momentous a
question as this appears to be. The
whole nation will have to be educated
upon tho subject and stirred to its
very do.jtlis as it was upon the Mor
imon question before this herosy of
tho "brotherhood of man" business
'will be relegated to the political pit
''into which its advocacy hurled Geo.
C. Gorham in 1807. California at
tho beginning of that campaign was
.twenty thousand Republican, and it
iburied Georgo twelve thous'ind deep
with democratic votes, from under
which he has never yet been able to
crawl into an elective office. It i
too early yet to forecast the result of
this veto upon thi political struggle
two years henon, but not too early to
predict a defeat to tho republican
party in California at tho approach
ing election in November. The pub
lic will await with an intensified in
terest to see what stop will next bo
taken by 'the friends of the bill.

In Camp, April 4, 1882.
Editoic Epitaph : In reply to the arti
cle in the Nugget of March 31, relating to
the Earp party mid some of ihc citizens of
Graham and Cochise counties, I would
like to give you the facts in this case dur
ing our trip in Cochise and Graham coun
ties. Leaving Tombstone Saturday even
ing, Marcli 25,
WK WENT INTO CAM
six miles north of town. Next morning
we were overtaken by three prospectors
on their road from Tombstone to Win
Chester district, who asked us to partake
of a frugal meal, which we ale with relish,
after which wn traveled in company with
them on the main road to Summit station,
where we had dinner and awaited the ar
rival of the passenger train from the west,
A FRIENDLY MESSENGER.
From hero we continued our journey on
the wagon road to Henderson's ranch
where we had refreshments f'r ourselves
and horses, here we were informed that
a gentlemanly deputy sheiiff ofCochise
county, Mr. Frank Hereford (for whom
we have the greatest respect as a gentle
man and ofllcer) was at the ranch
at the time of our arrival and de
parture, ami have since learned the reason
for not presenting himself, was fears for
his safety, which we assure him were
groundless. Leaving this ranch wc went
into camp on good glass one mile north.
At seven, next morning, we saddled and
went north to
Mil. II. C. IIOOKK.lt'S RANCH,
in Graham county, where we met Mr.
Hooker, and asked for refreshments for
ourselves and stock, which he kindly
granted us with the same h ispitalily that
was tendered us by the ranchers of Cochise
county. As regards to Mr. Hooker out
liit'ng us with supplies and fresh horses,
us mentioned in ibe Nugget, it is talse and
without foundation, as wc are riding the
same horses wc left Tombstone on, with
the exception of Texas Jack's horse, which
was killed in tho
FK1IIT WITH CUKI.Y DILI.
and posse, which wc replaced by hiring
a horse on the Sa:i Pedro river. In re
lation to the reward olVercd by Ihc Stock
Association, which the Nugget claims
Mr. Hooker paid t Wyatt E-irp for the
killing ol Curly Bill, it is also faKc, as
uo reward has been asked for or tendered.
Leaving Hooker's ranch on the even
ing of that day, we journeyed north to
within live miles of Eureka Springs.
There wo camped with a freighter and
was chew fully furnished the best his
camp all'oided. Next morning, not being
in a huiry lo break camp, our stay was
long enough lo notice the
.MOVEMENTS Of SIIK1UKF 1IK1IAN
and his posse of honest ranchers, with
whom, had they possessed the trailing abil
iiies of the average Arizona ranchman, we
might have had trouble, winch we are not
seeking. Neither are we avo'ding these
honest ranchers as we thoroughly under
stand their designs.
At Cottonwood wc remained overnight,
and here picked up the trail of the
I.OjT CHAIU.EY noss,
" and a hot one." Wc are confident that
our trailing abilities will soon enaulc us to
turn over lo the "gentlemen" the fruit of
our eilbrls, so they inny not again return to
Tombstone empty-handed. Yours respect

Jack Duncan left today for Arizona, to
secure Frank Jackson, the most desperate
menmer of Sam Bass' gang of train rob

fight at Round Rock in 1878, in which
Sam Bass, Seth Barnes and others were
killed. Positive information has been re

From a reliable gentleman, a reporter on
this paper learned this morning that on
.Monday last the Earp party arrested a
m..ii that answers to the description of
Frank Jackson, and turned him over to
detective Jack Duncan at San Simon sta
tion, and that Duncan, who was satisfied
with the prisoner's identity, took him
aboard the train and started for Texas that
night. It appears from what could be
learned that Wyatt Earp had been in cor
respondence with the
for several months about this man Jack
son and other Texas criminals, and had
been notified to expect their advent into
southeastern Arizona sooner or later, from
(he-fact that they were so hard pressed by
the law officers and detectives of Texas and
New Mexico that they must surrender or
else seek this country for shelter. In the
party's wanderings they cauie upon this
man, who answering the description of
Jackson, they cultivated his acquaintance

In 1531, after one unsuccessful at
tempt, Pizarro lauded in Peru at the
head of nearly three hundred men,
about one-half of whom were
mounted. His fellow adventurer
was Diego de A'magro, a soldier of
fortune, like himself unable to read
or write his own name, but confident
in the prowess of his sword. The
latter soon grew jealous and discon

The great empire of Inca was dis

brothers, Husacar and Atahualpa
The Spaniard cast his fortune with
the latter soon after Huascar had
been overcome and cruelly murdered.
At tho head of one hundred and
seventeen men he marched to meet
the powerful Inca in 1582. He en
tered the Peruvian camp with signs
of friendship, but treacherously made
Atahualpa a captive and massacred
upward of 10,000 Peruvians without
losing a man. The Indian army fled
in dismay, and the conqueror made
himself master successively of Cuzco,
the city of tholncas, and every place
of importance, and then founded the
present city of Lima, which he called
Ciudad de Los Reves, or City of tho

Cortez, and surpassed him in perfidy.
He did not long hesitate at the dis

chains and visited him daily in his

"Do so and you are free."
Atahualpa issued proclamations
and collected together all the golden
ornaments of his churches and tem

Manzalipa was a woman of genius
as well as of personal beauty, nd
sho aided him greatly through her
knowledge of the masses of the peo
pie with whom he dealt.
But the shadows of death were
gathering around the chieftain, and
tho boll of fate had struck his knell.
Diergo Almagro, the son of a for
mer Almagro hy an Indian woman
(how strangely these blood feuds
were wrought out by the poorwrong
cd Indians!) headed a conspiracy to
accomplish his death.
Diergo was a man of address and
ability. His fellow conspirator were
about twenty in number part Span
iards and Indians, and each was
sworn to strike a death Wow at Pi-zar-o'8
Late in the afternoon on Sunday,
immediately after dinner, Pizarro was
reclining on an ottoman, half divest

habit of wearing in the daytim-.
He was now seventy years of age,

and his long moustache frosted with

death shriek and the clash of steel,

to his feet. Ho raised his sword,

in a tenified way to his knees, was
