CLIFTON CLAEIOX. !
FRIDAY, APUEL 19. 1S89. REFORM." - And we further tind that the said board have heon guilty of gross abiis of tho tlist-rrtioiiary power lodged in them, in relation, to the awarding of contract:, and ive. the - grand iurr. act-use E. A. (.'uttor, J. E. . - BaiJey and F. Pysart the duly qnal- itled and arting members of the "fcoard of supervisors of Graham eountv. Territory of Arizona, of wilful and corrupt misconduct in office in this: That whereas, com- " men ring the 16th day of January. -1889, paid board published in ac eordance with law a notice inviting "proposals for doing the county printing and authorizing a separate -proposal for publishing the pro- cecdiugs of the board and the ad- " vertising, and whereas, in due coni "plianee with law and with, said notice, W. V. Jones was the lowest - bidder for publishing the proceed- " ings of the board and advertising, " said board well knowing the name. and each and every one of them wil " fully and corruptly rejected said bid " or proposal of said W. V. Jones with- out cause; and awarded the same to I. E. Solomon at a much higher u price, well knowing the same ; and we -direct that the district attorney " make immediate action to enjoin said board from carrying out said con - tract so awarded as aforesaid, and "to take such other action in the premises a F required by law." CorPKK is gradually dropping. The latest quotations place the price at 18.75. Wilfully cokkot is the opinion the grand jury has of the reform board of supervisors. Thk attention of Governor AVolfley is respectfully called to the opinion the grand jury has of the honesty of one of his appointees. Sheriff O'Nkiix. the journalistic sheriff of Yavapai county, succeeded in catching the Canyon Diablo train robbers after a long chase into Utah. - Bucky " generally gets what he goes after, Tiirbill creating the new county of j Coconino was vetoed by Governor "Wolfley, whereupon the citizens of j Flagstaff, . which hoped to be the county seat, burned our new executive : in effigy. Governor Wolfley has appoint' ed contractor Cutter a member of the Board of Prison Commissioners. Cut- ., , . -j i i i .1 i provided always provided. Head the i , .. , , . . their report. As rr took a least twelve of the fourteen nwmters of the grand jury fo agree upon a verdict in the crn-e of the printing robbery, and as that body was "composed of good and represen tative men of the county," the censure delivered will certainly carry great weight. District Attorney Patterson is proving himself an able and con scientious officer. lie has no love for jobbers in any condition or state, and the taxpayers of Graham county will not forget that the printing steal j was consummated against his earn est protest. It I stir earnest bopc that the mines in this district, as is so often the case in others, will never rest under a oloud through the operations of any "tin horn" mining companies. They are a drawback to any camp, and The Clakiox will take pleasure in expos ingthe business methods of any such institutions should one of them ever materialize in this section. Tue Bulletin corrects .one circum stance in connection with an article published last week relating to the printing steak It says that it did not get paid for publishing the fence law. But it falsifios when it says our figures were wrong in comparing the difference in prices which the board i would hare been compelled to pay had it been an advertisement. The proof of this lies in the iignres pub lished this week regarding the diflcr. ence in publishing the proceedings of j April 1st. The copy is verbatim. Any i one with a tape line and a pencil can verify our figures. j SOPHISTRY. ! 'f he i.'iouutsia labored ::ml brought forih a iituuse," uud the olLcial organ uiou especially hi democratic friend, of Solomon's rnpes has again spoken. ! in this county, will be pleased to learn ome three or four eblnmns of per-1 ofhiiHiiccet-s in the last municipal eleo sonal abuse of J. T. Fitzgerald, and j Hon in El Faso, of which place he is not one word in defense of the print ing steak A few lines of abuse for the editor of this paper, but not one word of truth in justification of the iufamous robbery by the 'reform'' board of supervisors. A lot of soph istry and appeals to prejudice against individuals, but nt cause shown why Cutter, lysart and Bailey should com pel the taxpayers of Graham county to subsidize the Bulletin so that those three reformer's might have an "or gan". Plenty of falsehoods and mis representations, but no reason given why the grand jury were wrong in their opinion of the corruption plain ly evident in the board of supervis ors. As a matter of fact it is of no use for the subsidized organ to try and excuse the -wilful corruption" of the supervisors by either personal attacks on individuals or references to the acts of preceding officers. Figures speak for themselves. The present board of supervisors were elected by the people on the broad platform of economy and reform. They have right in the beginning put the tax payers of this county to an unneces sary and inexcusable expense of $1,500 per year on the printing contract. No personal allusions will cause tax payers to forget that fact; the board betrayed the trust that was placed in their bands by the people last Novem ber. The circumstances have clearly demonstrated that the county affairs are in the hands of a ring who are working solely for their own aggran dizement and power. Xo sophistry can disguise this fact, nor no reference to alleged misdeeds of former ollieials can excuse it. The taxpavcrs of the ! county arc intelligent, and will not al-j low their eyes to uc winded iy such ; methods as arc practiced by the hired 1 organ ring. of Graham county's present Osk strong argument advanced by the Bulletin why the board of .Solo mon's supes should grant their organ a subsidy of $100 per month is that the editor of Thk Clakiox drinks whisky and smokes cigarettes. The dough-headed editor of the Bulletin I might have gone further and an- , I nounced to a breathlesslv interested public that we have a wart on our nose; that we arc knock-kneed. pigeon-toed and round-shouldered ; that we arc a social outcast mid oc- casionally indulge in a course of wild dissipation that sometimes keeps us up as late as 12 o'clock at night ; that we have even been known to draw to a pair aud monkey with the festive tiger; that we ruined our Sunday-go-to-meeting trousers this week tihing a portion of Thk Clakiox material out of the muddy waters of the rag ing 'Frisco, and that we now need the services of a well-disposed aud char- , f itably inclined seamstress to rcmedv medy a slight deficiency in the western ex tremity of our old pair ; that we owe our hotel keeper a board bill and other people several dollars besides, and it is no sure thing that we would not rob a stage or run away with another man's wife. But all of this has nothing to do with the fact that the board of supervisors robbed the county out of $1500 on the printing contract. "We ri'ULisii the official proceedings of the board of supervisors of April 1st, copied verbatim from the Bulle tin. The board will pay their organ for 38 inches at 80 cents per inch, amounting to $30.40. Had they ac cepted The Clarion bid they would have had to pay for 32 inches at 25 cents per inch, or $8, or precisely one qnarter of what they paid their hired organ. The difference is a subsidy paid by the board of supervisors for the support of the Valley Bulletin. After reading the report of the grand jury published in this issue, Gorernor Wolfley ought to come to the conclusion that in putting Cutter on the Board of Prison Commissioners he has made an excellent appointment for Cutter. "When we prophesied that the Bui- j letin company had overreached them- selves we were not far from the i truth.

I-ovell, Hen ey and CoL Vaughn visited Pima on Sunday, where they were entertained by Messrs-Weech, Webb and Taylor, returning Sunday night very much pleased with their visit. Court adjourned Monday noon for the term. Among the most import ant cases decided was the appeal from the probate court of the settlement of j the account of D. II. Ming, adminis trator of the estate of J. B. Collins, which was in favor of Ming. Judge Barnes in rendering his decision com plimented Mr. Ming on his manage ment of the estate and readily con ceded the extra compensation asked.

Every one was on tip toe of expectation as it was supposed some action would be taken in regard to the county print ing steal, and all were anxious to know the result. The friends of The Clarion have no cause to complain of the report, as, in the words of one of them, it is a scorcher.

Malley, from the Ara vapai. was the only one who could be heard on the streets attempting to ex cuse members of the board for their action in this matter. He pleaded ig norance and the baby act in their be half but it Mould not work, and a cloud in the shape of an indictment is thrown over three rising statesmen, Dysart, Cutter and Bailer. The Clarion is vindicated, and if it does not get the county printing, it will get considerable satisfaction, which, in the words of Jiin Smith, 'is a heap." As the matter is now in the courts it would be well to let it rest for the present, but the Reformers, the advo cates of "Honest Administration and Low Taxes" must toe the mark or they will get a scorchihg from Prospector.

In 1884 I contracted blood poison. Physicians treated me with no good results. I took a half dozen differ ent kinds of blood medicines, but, without receiving any permanent relief ! I was in duced to try S. S. S. I began the first bottle with the gravest doubts of success. I had been so often deceived. But im provement came, and I continued its use until perfectly well. I have since married, and have a healthy family. No trace of the disease is seen. Swift's Specific did all this for me, and I am grateful. Yours truly. J. S.
