The El Paso Inter-Republics, which has heretofore been most ably conducted by George B. Lov ing & Co., has changed hands, Mr. Loving retiring and E. P. Lowe assuming control Notwithstanding the large pen sion payments for August, am ounting to 16,500,000, the re- ' ceipts for the month at the United Statea Treasury department are more than 7,500,000 in excess of the total expenditures for the same period. The receipts have aver aged over a million dollars a dav. It begins to look as if Clifton would soon see a mining boom in precious metals. There is hnrdly another section in the Territory which shows up such large leads and fiue indications in gold and silver as are at present being lo cated by prospectors in this viciuity. Governor Zulick received a let ter last week from the Chinese consul at San Francisco, asking protection for Chinese subjects at FlagstaH. The recent attempt to lire the town has been laid to the Chinese and they were ordered to leave. As no violence was offer ed, the governor is powerless to act. Colorow, the Ute chief who is making the disturbance in Color ado, is an enormous old savage weighing 300 pounds. He is what is known in baseball slang as "a kicker." He has never been satis lied with the government and has been more or less rebelions all his life. He used to visit Denver very often, and on one occasion went to Governor McCook's office and be came rather insolent. Governor McCook kicked Colorow out of his office and down a flight of stairs into the street. The sword presentation at Tuc son has been postponed on ac count of a painful accident which befell -General Miles at Los Angeles on Angnst 30th. The following particulars regard ing the accident are obtained from Los Angeles papers: In the early part of the day a party of fifteen, consisting of General and Mrs.Miles,Colonel and Mrs. Drum, Mrs. Governor Stoneman, Miss Stoneman, J. J. Melius, Mrs. Da ponte, Lieutenant Drapray, Thos. Drapray, Lieutenant McCaleb, Mrs. Colonel J. R. Dobbins and AV. L. Bantry, started for a ride about the country in Captain Ban ning's six-in-hand coach. After enjoying a very pleasant drive they started on their return from Baker's reservoir, north of Santa Monica, J. J. Melius handling the ribbons. When the hill was reach ed leading down toward the depot the horses were brought to a walk, at which place they started to de ; , see J the grade. It was necessary at this point to go around the de pot building on the westerly road leading to the hotel, and the im petus given to the coach was such as to give it considerable speed by iho time the bottom of the incline was reached. As the coach roacned the road Mr. Melius noticed a buggy containing two ladies di rectly in front of the horses, and for some unaccountable reason these ladies stopppd tho busrgy. It was impossible to slop the coach so quickly, and the only alternative vns to run the horses into the buggy or endeavor to pass around it. Mr. Melius chose the latter in preference to causing the certain death of the ladies in the buggy, and as the coach sweved the wheels struck a rut and overturned the vehicle, throming out its occupants. The ladies, who had grasped the bituation earlier than the gentle men, jumped as the coach turned over and thus escaped seri ous injury. The gontlninen were not so lucky, however, for in fall ing General Miles sustained a fracture of two of the small bones of his right ankle. Colonel Drum received a bad cut on his forehead Iwsides several bruises. J. .1. Mel ius was bruised in several places, Lieutenant Drapray's ankles were sprained and Lieutenant McCaleb flra.UttJ his wrists as he Ml.

As abuse of the Chief Executive is calculated to mislead those abroad who are intending to in vest in this Territory and may thus do harm, let us say a word or two. The mass of the people are well satisfied with the Executive. When some sore headed republi cans who have perhaps felt the sting of the Governor's official boot, or some democrats for office only who have sought office and "got lef t,"talk about dissatisfaction among the people, or in the ranks of the sturdy democracy at any of the actions of Governor Zulick, they imagine that they constitute the people. That is a mistake. It will only take a minute to count these dissatisfied ones. Two or three coyotes sitting on their hauuehrs aud joining in a dismal howl, would mislead one not ac quainted with the habits of the little beasts, into a belief that there were hundreds of them. But just count them. Count them please; it won't take long. Phonix Ga zette. Sheriff Slaughter arrested four men at Stein's Pass, N. M., as the Pautano train robbers. Their names are J. T. Blunt, Dick John son, Joseph Brooks aud L. M. Shoehan. It is not believed by the people who are acquainted with them that they are the men wanted. Sheriff E. O.

Parks and Dr. Gadtlis paid Gold Hill a flying visit Sunday. Mias Minnie Kollum of Gold Hill made a social visit last week to her numerous friends in town. Capt. Mitchell of the Standard was here on businers last Thurs day. He reports the mill doing good work and the ore maintain ing its value. Jesse Keister, Miller and Gid ding, old time prospectors of the Burro mountains, "paseared"' here last week. Keister recently sold an interest in the Homestead mine. Miss Winnie Burt of Silver City was here on a visit last week. Opium joints were raided here last week and three celestials whose-, names are said to be One Lung, Two Lung and Gin Sling, were fined 50 and trimmings, from which judgment they ap pealed to the district court Judge Buck defended them. Several car loads of mining ma chinery have been handled by our teams overland to the Carlisle dis trict consigned to J. P. Patterson at East camp. Two boilers and a Corlis engine, four foot stroke, arrived on Fri day for the Carlisle company. Col. J. T. McWhirt and family have gone to the Chiricahuas to rusticate. Norman Buck, Esq., started on the 10th instant for Hillsboro to attend district court. P. J. Rogers of Fort Scott, Kan sas, passod through on his way to Moreuci. He has accepted the position of master mechanic that was tendered him by the Detroit copper company. Dr. Lacy, whose social genially has nmie him a host of friends, left on the Sunday morning west bound train for California. It is rumored that he will bring back a "rib" and depart from the lonely paths of bachelordom, with its ever attending hopes and fears, vexations and vanities. There is not a shadow of a doubt but that he will be a model benedict and merit the full measure of happi ness in store for him; at least that is the wish of his many friends. Mr. J. M. Hall, President of the Short Horn Cattle company of Luna, Socorro county, is here. He is expecting daily a bunch of his short horns, which will be placed on the market at this place, the cattle being driven by tho way of Alma and Carlisle. The secret servico force of both the Southern Pacific and Wells Fargo & Co. are making a record that excites nothing but ridicule at this place. It may be said the same of the Sheriff of Cochise county, Mr. Slaughter. One night last week Sheriff Slaughter and posse arrived here on a special traiu, an engine and box-car, on which were horses for himself and posse. It turned out that the party they were after, as the train robbers, were at the time and have been all along at Stein's Pass. At all events, after remaining here about twelve hours, he and his special railway conveyance went back to Stein's Pass and arrested the train robbers, (!) one of whom, Brooks, fifty men are roady to tes tify was here at Lordsburg on the day of the robbery and was here for a week before and after the crime. This is the character of Vidocqnism employed to trail and run down the thieves. Think of it, trailing train robbers three weeks after the "hold up" on the same railroad on a special train. Fine work! Quite a pleasant social gather ing took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Small last Thursday evening in honor of the joint visit of Misses Minnie Kel lum and Winnie Burt Conver sation and terpsechore wore in dulged in sufficient to pass the time pnjoyably into tho "wee sma' hours." Sheriff Laird executed a writ of attachment in favor of Lindauer, Wormser & Co., on the property belonging to the Advance saloon last Saturday. A. P. Miller, the postmaster, has removed tho postoffice into the de pot building. A convenient lo cation. Miss Fisher, a young lady who lived with her parents at Shakes pere, died of typhoid malaria. Dr. Simpson was called to attend the case wheu the disease had assumed its fatal feature. A brother of the deceased was also stricken with th- same malady, but there hope of his recovery. The railroad well yields 38,000 gallons of water and the flow is in creasing. J. G. Park, Esq., surveyed a group of mines recently for Grif fith, Doyle & Co. The old town of Shakespere is assuming a lively appearance. The old hotel is undergoing thorough repairs and renovation. Other nuiklings nro n!?o being worked that h?v i'l'L't; h-.v:'t(" T. these many years. Real estate that one year ago had no value is now finding purchasers. Among those who have made purchases recently are Mat Doyle, W. G. Griffith, Vic Van Hall and others. Tho build ings of the town are well built, substantial structures of concrete and adobe. The parties alluded to above are all old-timers in this section and their movements are looked upon as "shadows of com ing events" indicating a revival of business at the old place. Cy Blunt of Volcano, wno was arrested as one of tho train rob bers at Stein's Pass by Sheriff Slaughter and posse, was in town Monday. He was turned loose at Tucson. Mr. Blunt is considerably exercised over the way he was treated by Slaughter. A young man named Perrin, a locomotive fireman, had his left foot badly crushed Monday night while passing between cars in motion. A fellow called Shorty was ar rested Monday night for stealing 10 from Frank Schultz. The crime was traced home to him by means of a marked bill. Quid Nunc. Lordsburg, September 5, 1887.
