Witx her usual euteprise, Denver
come, to the front with the
announcement that at the enormous
outlay of SIO,OOO the celebrated Man
batten Deaeh production, Pain's
“Siege of Sebastopol,” hoc been ae
ecred for this city, the initial -pre
formance commencing on Thursday
evening, Jane 27th. This is one of
the grandest of MUita/y Spectacular
Conceptions, invented by James Pain
Sons, London, the celebrated man
ufacturers of fire-works at London,
Melborne, Australia and New York,
and it is gratifying to know that cur
metropolis has secured something
finer than eyer seen in the United
Few people have any conception
of the magnitude and surpassing
beauty of these monster pyrotechni
cal diplays. They necessitate 40
carloads of scenio paraphernalia, 500
people, fire acres of ground in the
center of which is a lake 250 feet
long by 75 feet wide, and seating ca
pacity for 10,000 spectators. The
picture is a colossal painting 300 feet
long, done in oil, on iron and wood,
with seenery blending off upon
mighty canvas. Towers, mosques
and truthful representations of the
city of Sebastopol are done upon the
iron block work by a celebrated Eu
ropean artist. The production con
sists of realistic bombardment of
forts by boats which traverse the im
mense artifical lake; terifio assault
of fortress by allies; 35 correctly
costumed and excellently drilled «ol
diers, Cossacks Freach and English
troops and marines, Turks, Sardin
ians, etc. It being a military specta
cle many feats of horsemanship,
sword combats, athletic feats, etc.,
will be introduced by some of the
greatest performers in the known
world. All these will be produced
intact, on the same scale of magnifi
cence as at Manbatten Beach. After
the Siege each evening will be given
a |I,OOO fire-works display consisting
of the latest novelties, Manbatten
Beach, Aerial and Aqnatic Pyrotech
nics. Grand concerts will be given
by the Sebastopol Military Band of
thirty pieces.
All railroads will sell excursion
tickets daring the production of this
grand spectacle. The date of the
excursion from this place can be as
certained at the railroad depot.
Only ten performances will be
given, which will take to July 13th.
Ample arrangements haye been made
for the accommodations of 10,000
people in the mammoth amphitheatra
erected for the pnrpose in River
Front park.—Denver Times.
The better element in the commu
nity and the mugwumps are largely
to blame for the alleged political de
pravity of the times. If naen who
are, or think they are, better than
the common ran of hamanity won't
go into caucuses and use their in
fluence for the nomination of good
men, how can they expeot good men
to be nominated? You can’t put a
package of ye&st oakes on the parlor
table and expect it to leaven the
dough in the kitchen. If high mind
ed, principaled, thinking men will
not go to the caucuses and to the
polls and otherwise mingle in politics,
but hold themselves at a critical dis
tance and simply find fanlt, they
should not expect politics to improve.
The mugwumps will not go into
either the republican or democratic
caucuses for reasons which they
themselves perhaps can explain; we
can’t. They lot the wicked practical
politicians run things; and they hud
dle off by themselves in a perpetual
state of hypochondria over the wick
edness of the times.—Waterbary Re
The Las Vegas Optio gives the
following brief history of Billy the
Kid the notorious outlaw that was
killed in New Mexico seven years
His name was William H. Bonney.
At sixteen he was dubbed ‘The Kid*
by his pals in Mesilla, on account of
hij diminutive person, as well as his
youth. When only twelve years of
age he stabbed to death a man en
gaged in a drunken brawl with one
or two others in a saloon at Silver
City. Between that time and the
opening of the Lincoln county war,
as it has been generally termed, he
was known to have been the princi
pal actor in the murder of three
sleeping Indians for their ponies and
pelts, and two monte dealers for
their money. During the Lincoln
county war—which you should know
was a war for disputed pastnrage
ground between twc rival firms of
cattle kings and their respective ad
herents, the Kid certainly murdered
with his own hsnd two unarmed
men, whom his companions had
made prisoners, and the clerk of a
merehantile house for remonstrating
with him about driving off horses
belonging to the firm. He also kill
ed one man in open fight, and as
sisted in the assassination of three
officers of the law, including the
sheriff of the county. Subsequent to
the war he killed in a saloon a Texan,
whow he provoked into a difficulty,
after he had made himself secure by
manipulating hie opponent's pistol.
But his final atrocity was the killing
at Lincoln courthouse the two officers
who had him in charge after his ar
rest and trial, and who allowed
themselves to be taken at a disad
vantage through heedlessness and
over-confidence. In all, I think, it is
settled that about a dozen men were
done to death by his individual band,
and that, perhaps, about as many
more fell in affrays with him and his
companions. During these years,
too, be neglected no opportunity of
plundering the people; and hundreds,
aye, thousands, of cattle and horses
were carried off and sold by him and
bis gang. This fiend, rather than
mau, was finally hunted down and
slain when only twenty-one years of
age by the gentleman you have just
seen, and whose name I have just
given you—Pat Garrett, the then
sheriff of Lincoln count}’."
The multiplication of military ti
tles has been carried to such an ex
tent in this country that men of high
nominal rank are found in all pur
suits and positions, from the highest
to the humblest. Majors are man
aging railroads, colonels are doing
the duties of hotel olerks, and gen
erals are waiting on restaurant tables.
Men of military titles abound per
haps the most in the civil service. It
is a very poor sort of an official that
isn’t a major, and one of no great
consequence who is not addressed a*
colonel. These things have created
a suspicion of the genuineness of
some of its titles. They have indeed
inspired the hint that possibly in
some instances the titles have been
assumed for a purpose. Acting upon
some such hint, the Postmaster Gen
eral has ordered tbat the majors, col
onels and generals who are register
ing money orders, assorting mail
matter and distributing letters shall
set out in writing upon what awful
fields they won their titles.—Denyer

From the Artsona Kicker.
A base fabrication.—A correspond
ent of the Chicago Herald announoea
that tbe editor and proprietor of thin
paper reoently won $2,000 at a game
of poker in a well-known ealoon and
that we play the best hand of any
man in the Territory. The artiole
was sent out with the design of in
juring us. In order not to seem a
stranger here we occasionally drop
in on the hoys and play poker, and*
in order not to appear to be a tender
foot we have occasionally raked in a
few dollars, hut no one must charge
us with being a gambler. As to the
$2,000 business, the most nervy man
in town wouldn't bet over $1.50 it he
held four aces or a straight flush.
Don’t forget it.—ln addition to
the grocery in our front room, which
is rapidly securing tbe cream of
trade, we have established a tin shop
in the rear of the shanty and propose
to do all sorts of repairing. Later
on we may add a harness shop and
other needed enterprises. If we
build in the spring, as we now figure
on, we shall pat m a marble shop and
furnish grave-stones cheaper than has
eyer been heard of in Arizona. We
may also add a grist-mill. James
Gordon Bennett, Henry Watterson
and Amelie Rives may have time to
junket around the country and show
off their clothes, but we haven't.
We are always at home. The Chi
cago Times may ridicule our grocery
in connection with the Kioker, but
there are no flies on us. Six bars for
a quarter, and a horn comb thrown
in. “Give us a call before purchas
ing elsewhere.”
A olerical looking gentleman, in
hopes of obtaining a contribution,
entered the office of a newspaper and
finding the editor at his desk, said:
“I am soliciting aid for a high toned
gentleman of refinement and intelli
gence, who is in need of a little ready
money, but who is too proud to make
known his sufferings ” “Why,” ex
claimed the editor, u l*m the only
man in this town who answers that
description. What's his name?”
“I’m not *t liberty to disclose bis
name.” u lt_ roost be me, parsons.
Heaven bless and prosper you in tbe
work,” said the editor wiping away
a tear. The editor says the look the
parson gave him as he went out wilt
haunt him to hia grave.—Kinsley
Kansas Mercury.
