It will bo exactly two years ago
on Monday next that tho Epitaph
sounded its first trumpet note and
spread its nowsy pages to tho breezes
that fanned tho homes and brows of
many an hardy miner among tho hills
of Tombstone. At that timo we an
nounced our purpose to advecato tho
best interests of tho section we repre
sented, giving special attention to
our great mining interests, and al
ways endeavoring .to advances tho
worthy prinriIi- ui tho glo'iious old
republican party. Tho energy and
labor we have expended in executing
these purposes is witnessed in tho
thousands of columns that havo is
sued from this sanctum, telling the
world of .our wonderful develop
ments and the untold wealth that was
constantly answering tho knock of
capital and labor. Wo have written
tho EpiTAni through two long years
of steady progress with a fair mea
sure of success in all its departments.
Wo havo watched our pet enterprise
in its growth from an infant of days
to n position of value, influence and
power; from an humble tent, a hand
pi ess and a weekly edition, to a hand
some, two-story structure, power
press, metropolitan daily edition,
with a news and job oflico complete
in all departments, and a neat income
above ordinary running experses.
We have chronicled tho growth ot a
town of tents and frame3 to a city of
hotels, ohurches, schools, banks, so
cieties, etc., etc. Tho better mines
.havo one by ono outgrown tho ropo
and windlass, replacing thorn with
tho great cables and powerful steam
.hoisters. By fives. and tens tho pon
doroua stamps havo been added to
tho crushing capacity of our mills to
hicreiisotho-steady yield of flu: pro
cious metal. Tho telegraph with its
magic forces has united Tombstone
to the world ind American enter
prise has brought tho railroad that
greatest of civilizing influences al
most to our very doors. Such is the
enterprise and prosperity chronicled
by tho Epitaph since its birth ontho
first of May, 1880. Such are the" in?
dustries and progress wn have sought
to encourage and lost' ..
In tho EriTAPii the republican
party has always had a willing, fear
loss advocate. Tho principles and
interests of that party have been de
fended and advanced with untiring
zeal, and that to without asking finan
cial reward or tho emoluments of
office. With the transfer of tho
Epitaph tho republican party looses
its strong right arm in Coclnso
county; a loss . that will not bo fully
appreciated until sustainod. This
is however natural, for human naturo
is so constituted that few appreciate
the blessings they enjoy until such
privileges havo passed beyond their
The management has been charac
terized by positive ideas and con
victions and consistancy therewith.
We have at times beon judged wrong
by some but havo ourselves felt right.
.1 f, then, wo havo erred we may hope
to be forgiven. The stem transac
tions of business admit of but little
space for sentiment, yet, it is not
without sincere regret that wo write
our last lines and briefly say fare
well to those columns. Tho dear old
EriTAi'ii is to us like a ohild we have
raised, n business wo have created;
and it is with no mock pride that wo
announco our ability to transfer to
our successors tho neatest and most
complete newspaper office ever turn
ed over between tho city of Los
Angeles and Denver; and consign
to their management columns whoso
influence and power are felt and
recognized Wishing tho Epitaph
great success financially, and as a
miningjournal, wo say farewell!
On this bright, spring evening,
while tho birds aro singing on the
grease-wood bush and tlio Apaches
aw howling through tho mountains,
tho Epitaph wraps itself in the
American flag and dies liko a suu-of-a-gun.
Ta-ta! We will meet again,
We violate no confidence in as
serting that tho old Epitaph manage
ment and tho public' generally part
tho best of friends. Tho paper has
published the nows and told tho
truth. If anyone has been injured
Bjereby, it h no fault of tho news-
paper, whoso province it is to keep
its readers posted. We would fur
thermore i em ark that we havo never
been charged with being mealy
mouthed or weak-kneed.

Tins foolish rich man wanted two
republican papers, and now, alas ! he
hasn't one. 'Tis sad, but true.
Bf.othei; I'ukdv, take tho chair,
and give us a little pure and undc

We packed our blankets into tho
territory and are punching a burro

wo are rich.
As the Missourian remarked on tho
scaffold, just previous to being

rangers well led, and tho Indians
well leaded, the country would soon

To the live and energetic busi

tho greatest success. May their
prosperity be in proportion to their

That tho Nugget may be success

into a magnificent oro body of re
publicanism, is tho parting wish of
tho EnrAPii.

At an adjourned meeting of the coustltu

" We, your conmiiltee, appointed by your
honorable body, to make a report upon the
condition of our old friend, conclude, after
a careful and thorough examination, that
lio is afflicted with a complication of dis
eases, tho principal and most alarming one
being ringworm in chronic form, lie is
also suffering from cramp In the stomach,
superinduced by tho profuso cheese diet
ordered by us at a former consultation.
We, the committee, all agree that our ven
erated friend is in a dying condition, and
'Unless speedy relief is given him death
must ciuicklv ensue. "While vour commit-
iaaro in perfect accord relative to tho
nature ot tho old gent's ailment, there is a
difference ot opinion as to what would be
tho proper remedy to apply. That this as
senibly of his friends may determine that
issue by vote, we will submit to this meet
ing a majority and a minority report upon
that point, embodied in resolutions to bo
acted upon by your honorable body.

Resolved, That we adopt the heroic
treatment and administer its remedies in
homeopathic doses.
On the second reading of the resolution
several members paired and went out of the
hall "to seo a man." The resolution was
lost by one vote, tho chairman casting his
vote in the negative. The member ap
peared deeply chagrined at tho defeat of

The tallowing motion was put and car

It was very evident the first part of tho
foiegoing motion was an offering to up
pease the disconcerted

fact, it had too much effect. The cloud

To say that the majority of iiicmbirs wore
surprised, would hardly express the situa

vent any clement of discoid Irom intrud
ing upon their deliberations when the
"mcrchine," lubricated with "peoples'

a demonstration interupt their proceedings
was mortifying in the extreme. It
was something they did net expect;
they did not want. Here let mo whisper

live seconds after the San Simon member
had made his debut beforu the assembly in
the role of n cowboy, the members sat
dumbfounded. And then the uproar that
tallowed beggars description. Amid the
cries of "Tiger," "Order," "Sit down,"
intermingled with whoops and cat-calls, a
dozen members tried to address the chair
at one and the same time. Tlu chairman
shouted himself hoarse in his vain effort to

Reliable Xmis from the Chlrlcnhua
Pour men came in from Morse's saw
mill, in the Chirlcahua mountains, this
morning, having lcltthero yesterday. They
brought the following report of tho condi -tlon
of affairs to their employer, Mr.
Morse, who kindly furnished the same to
the Epitaph :
On Wednesday last, James Fife, with
two men started up Finery canyon
after a load of lagging. They had
not got far when they came upon a band
of Indians, upon whom they llred, killing
one. The Indians returned the fire, killing
the two men with Fife and wounding him
in the breast aud ono of his arms. lie ran
down tho canyon and hid himself in a
thick undergrowth. The Indians set fire
to the brush, but Mr. Fife managed to
crawl along until ho got out of range when
he ran down the canyon to his father's
house near the valley, where ho now lies
in a very critical condition. Col. Cluto's
nut; Ri-Ayr f. Camp are imported to have
gone into Willcox fov safety. At White's
ranch, near the month of Turkey creek,
and about ten miles from Morse's mill,
twelve soldiers are stationed. About thirty
or foily Indians ran away all of White's
saddlo horses from within sight of tho
house, the parly of renegades being too
strong to attack by the forces there. At
the mill there aro twenty-sis men, and Mr.
Morso will send out arms, so that they will
bo able to defend themselves. These men
confirm tho report of the killing of James
near Autclopc springs, but whether by In
dians or not it is not known, as no investi
gation had been made. It is altogether
probable, however, thai it was the red
devils' work.
War Itumorc.
The town has been full of rumors of In
dian massacres on the right hand and the
left all day, but none of them could bo
traced to any authentic or reliable source,
with the exception of the killing of James
near Antelope springs. Early in the day
it was reported that three men had been
killed on the Bisbeo trail, but that was
soon exploded, for at three o'clock in the
morning a party ol six or eight men,
among whom were W. II. Savage, Gus
Williams, Frank Leslie and Ham Hardic,
arrived direct over the trail. Later it was
stated that an ox wood team near South
Pass, in the Dragoons, had been taken in,
but that, like the other, could not bo veri
fied. Mr. Dial, who lives at the east end
of South Pass with his family, came
in during the forenoon and had
not heard of any Indian troubles
until he arrived, when he secured the aid
of a friend and a fresh supply of amunl
tion and immediately started home. Be
said that he had seen signal tires upon tho
mountains at a distance, but nothing more.
The rangers, who came in from a week's
scout, will leave for the scene of hostilities
in the Sulphur Spring valley and Chinca
huas in tho morning. It is neither sate
nor wise for small parlies to go out into
the mountains i.t this time. An ounce of
prevention Is worth any amount of cure
in a case of this kind.

An Uneventful Week in the lionaiizn
There is a very general and well found
ed complaint that prospectors do not apply
themselves to the development of their dis
coveries before forcing them upon the
market for sale at mine prices. This sub
ject is better treated in the following par
ody on Hamlet's soliloquy, by Jack Blain
to Jim Crawford, in Los Vegas Optic, than
has beforo come to our notice, therefore
wc introduce it into this preface, believing
that it will afford amusement if not in
struction to our readers:

To kink or not to sink: that id the question;
Whether It is better In the prospector to sell
Tho highly mllhferous cropping for a soug
Or, nslug muscle, dig her down ;
And thUD by petseveranco strike It to sink to
No more aud by that sinking, strike a lead
Of gold or (-ilcr, or tho fine! copper glance
That luck Is heir to. 'Tis n consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To sink, to Blast,
To Watt, perchance to "bust;" thereVthe rub;
Korat the depth of tt-n .feet what base may conic?
Whoa. we bare shoieled oft' the uncurtain top,
Jlut give us pause. There's tho respect ,
Which mekes calamity of a prospect hole,
For who can tell what "pinch" may come below
Tho agentlferons start'? Componcntparts ofle.id,

Corruption of nature, all broken up, perchance.
Tho Insolence of luckier blokei md then iho
That the miner taken by shaniug,
When he, himself, might be much better ofi'
By simply waiting. What would we not do
lint that the dread of something yet unseen
Tho undiscovered pay streak (perhaps not there).
The argentiferous conundrum puzzles the will
And makes us rather raise tho monument we
Than open up the gronnd we know not of.
Thus prospecting doth mako cowards of us all,
And thus the prospects of a big bonanza
Is slckerized with some dark and cued doubt.

Duhino the remainder of the school
year the attention of the pupils in the pub
lic schools will be occupied in reviewing
the lessons they have gone over the past
eight months. The object will be lo re
fresh and fix in their minds the principles
already studied, and also to prepare for
lhe annual examinations. At the close of
the school, certificates of promotion will
be given to those whose standing during
the months past and percentage on exam
ination will cntitlo them to the same, and
lhe names of those thus advanced will be
given for publication. As near as possi
ble, the same text books have been used
throughout the territory, and the standing
of pupils here will entitle them to tho
same grade elsewhere in Arizona. It will
be to the interest of scholars to apply
themselves for tho next few weeks and thus
attain a standing as high as possible.
During the month of April past the num

"Now, boys, when -I'-ask you a
question you musn't bo afraid to
speak right out and answer me.
When you look around and see all
these fine houses, farms and cattle,
do you ever think who owns them all
now? Your fathers own them, do
they not? " " Yes, sir," shouted a
hundred voices. " Well, where will
your fathers be twenty years from
now? " " Dead," shouted the boys.
" That's right! And who will own
all this property then?" " Us boys!"
shouted the urchins, "night! iNow
tell me did you ever, in going along
the streets, notice the drunkards
lounging around the saloon doors
waiting for somebody to treat
them?" " V'es, sir, lots of them."
"Well, where will they be twenty
years from now? " " Dead," ex
claimed the boys. " And who will
be the drunkards then? " " Us
boys," shouted the unabashed

The San Francisco Argonaut writes
viciously against the Chinaman and
his friends. Wc like the stylo of
Pixloy's mulish articles, but when he
hints at anything liko a Pacific re
public his physician should prescribe
a cold shower bath. Let him give
it to the sentimentalists of tho East
as much as he pleases. They, need
some of his lectures; but let him not
forget that Gorham, whom some peo
plo used to call George Coolio Gor
ham, may come back at him, aud
that he (Pixley) and others liko him,
have done everything in their power
to strengthen the doctrine thoy now
sneer at "the brotherhood of man
racket" wc mean. A few years ago
when Kearney and his followers were
agitating the matter Mr. Pixley grew
red in tho face, if not in tho mouth,
over fancied wrongs to the coolie;
now ho is t'other way by a fearful
majority; goes in for stopping influx
by foul or fair means. This is sure
conversion. ' You're all right now,
Frank, and may your wife or some
body else keep you so. The Courier
is with you, although you may never
know it, as we suppose you never
read sucli small fry papers. Organize
your anti-Chinese forci; go down to
tho wharf on the arrival of every ship
from China, prevent the red locusts
from landing, nnd you'll master the
matter without bursting the Union
or a blood vessel.
When Governor Tritle was i.i
Tombstone he authorized the raising
of a body of men to act under tho di
rection of United States Deputy
Marshal Jackson for active opera
tions against the lawless element of
Cochise county. The company was
raised and the men put in the field,
and are at the present time operating
against the Indians. They aro the
only body of organized civilians now
out, and as they arc experienced
frontiersmen they will no doubt make
a more creditable showing than the
military havo done in any of their
recent engagements. Citizen, April

The Odd Fellows celebrated their

marched back to the hall. To-night
a grand ball will be held at Wool

From the Pht-ulx Gazette, April 3.
Fears are now entertained that the
Tonto Indians will join the hostile,
in which event they will doubtless
raid the settlements of their native
haunts. As Fort McDowell is with
out troops, no protection is offered
tho people of Tonto Basin from that
direction, and we may at least ex
pect the arrival of a number of wo
men and children from that section
in our county shortly.

The Index says that Comstock
miners arc flocking into Tioga dis

ment. Snow banks three feet high can be
seen on somo of the side streets in
Bodie, notwithstanding May is less
than a week off.
Old Boreas acted like a road bull
on Monday and tossed things about
very lively. Such trifles as signs,
loose boards, hats and cobble stones
were hurled in all directions. It was
not the breath of spring; it was more
of a wintry blast fresh from Siberia
or somo other equally cold quarter.
If another snow storm does not visit

Over on the main range it must have
been very bad and snow fell in many
places. The highest peaks could be
seen above the clouds.

J. J. Gosper, having served out
his time as secretary, acting-govenor,
is still as busy as ever, and has gone
