All I have to say is that I am ready for it, and I can make it just as hot for you as you want.

If you enter into competition with us else where I will makn the same light on you, and pending your action iu this matter I herewith cancel any, and all orders made to you for this company, and would say that it rests' with you ontirely as to the proposed light, in the ftiturs. 1 am fully aware that your mill docn not. ri-ie lo the dignity of a decent opposition, but to far as that opposition gues I am prepared to meet it.

Richards who was blown to pieces yesterday at the Mamie mine, took place to-day from the residence of Mrs. Winii'ii, on Fremont street. The funeral procession waj one of the largest that has ever taken place iu Tombstone, and shows with what high respect tuts deceased was held in by Iho people of Tombstone. Mr. Richards was a man among men, and to know him was to respect him. Honest, upright in all his dealings and Tombstone looses one of its best citizens, and Heav n gains another angel. Too much praise cannot be given the Cornish boys of tiiis city for the manner iu which they showed their deep and hiving appreciation of their fellow countryman.

WUy Mo Khald Aot lo F.lcctctl. The man who seeks an honorable and responsible office through the medium of tke ballot box should dem onstrate to th people that he is not only competent, but also deserving, of the position and trust to which he aspires. Ben Goodrich, Esq., has se cured the nomination of the Demo cratic ticket for District Attorney of Cochise couity. This is an office of great respoiuibilty and importance. Not only doM the proper restraint and punishment of crime in our midst depend largely upon the zeal and ef ficiency of the District Attorney, but his acts and decisions directly effect every taxpayer in the county. He is not only lh prosecutor of all offend ers against territorial laws, but he is the legal adviser for the coi'nty in all matters, and in this relation becomes largely responsible foi the proper col lection and expenditure of the pub lic funds. As a fitting text to this discussion of the qualifications of Mr. Goodrich for the potition he is now seeking, we may refer to the records in office of the County Treasurer. Wc find there th following assessment against Mr. Goodrich for the year 1S85: Lots 7 and 8, block 22 $ 200 00 Improvements on same 500 00 Law library 500 00 Two hone 150 00 Buggy and harness 75 00 One watch 50 00 Household furniture 400 00 Total ?l,b75 00 TJpoa this property the ' taxes amounted to $71.25. These taxes Mr. Goodrich refused, and still refuses to pjiy. They became delinquent and $2.30 collector's fees, and $5.55 pen ally were added to the original amount due tke county, making a total of $79.10, M'd;for this sunt the cntiie property enumerated in Mr. Good rich's assessment was sold to tbe Territory on February 7, ISSfi, and deeds irsued for the same on the 28th of AugUkt last. Here is man who has been a citi zen of Cochise county from its crea tion. II has accumul.-ite)l wealth and enjoyed evciy benefit and protec tion secured to the wor:hict citizen, und yet he declines to bear his pro portion of the expense necessaiy to procure such benefits and protection. Nay more; he has gone further than this by advising certain of his clients not to pay their taxes. Mr. Goodrich is a citizen; he is alio n lawyer. He lias taken advantage of every privilege accorded him as a cit izen, and as a lawyer he proposes to" defeat the just claims of the county against him for securing such privil eges. He is endeavoring (o force up on his fellow citizens the payment of his just proportion of tiie expense of supporting necessary public institu tions, and light on the heels of such dilyalty he asks these citizens and tax-payers to elect him, by their votes, to a position on iho county ticket which will enable him to collect auiuslly as salary, the sum of $3,000 from the moneys these tax-payers supply. Again, it is the duty of the District Alterney to proseculu all cases on be half f the county against delinquent taxpayers. Here is a man who not only declines to pay his own taxes, but claims that thu county can not ferco him to do. so. He allows his property, valued at $1,S75, to be sold to the Territory for the paltry sum of 70 10. He advises some of his im mediate friends not lo pay their taxes It is estimated that the county will lose in delinquent taxes for las- yeai, frem $4,000 to $5,000 as u result of tbe advice given by Mr. Goodrich, thus increasing (he burden of every honest taxpayer. In the face of this discreditable condition of affairs Mr. Geodrich now asks these honest tax payers for they are the honest vo ters to elect hi::: to the ollieo of District Attorney. Let us ask further, what has been tho relations of Mr. Goodrich wilh re. gard to tho criminal element of Co chise county, whom, as District At torney, he would be required to pros ecute f Take a brief retrospect of ihe turbulent days of U:81-S2. When tbe worst gang of thioves and murderer. that ever crippled I lie progress or blighted the prospects of any com munity, were living in open i.'efanci: I law, Mr. Goodrich was their legal defender, and wilh the fees collected from them he laid tho foundation for his present competency and purchas ed property upon which he now de clines to pay taxes. Is this tho char acter of a maji who will force the iron heel of Ihe law with fatal effect upon the neck of the criminal? Mr. Goodrich has not only availed himself of every privilege guaranteed to a citizen, but his children have been educated in the public schools, tho expenses of which he now So' generously allows his neighbors to?. pay. The position of District Attorney requires sleepless vigilance in protect ing every interest of the county, par ticularly the collection of her reve nues. Does Mr. Goodrich nppcaf to be the proper man for thai position? He certainly does not. The position he has taken on tho tax question, if successful, means immediate bank ruptcy to the county. If he should be elected to the position he seeks is it not probable that the county would be put to the additional expense of employing other counsel to protect the county's interest, not only against delinquent taxpayers, but against thu advice of the District Attorney, him self? The man who aspires to a public position should be public spirited ; a man inc'ined to encourage and assist in every public benefit; a man who cheerfully bears mutual burdens with his fellow men ; a man whose record is in all respects consistent with the ditties of the office he seeks. Mr. Goodrich is not that man. IotcI Fihinsr. "Ever catch full on a - whisky bot tle?'' asked a man with a red face as he leaned over one of the counters in Spalding's Madison Square store and looked into the blue eyes of a clerk : "No." "Well, you're not up with the time. You don't know what real sport is. Why, they know of no other way to fish up at Lake Villa, near the Wis consin line. I'll tell you how it'a done. The natives up there buy a bottle of whisky and drink the con tents. Then they put the cork back into the bottle, fasten about five Jeet of line around the neck and bait the hook with a- minnow. When they roach deep water they throw toe bot tle away from the boat and wait for results. Of course the bottle is ::s buoyant as a cork, and the .le'i'jn of the waves. has the effect to keep the bait iu a constant stat-j of agitation. Bye and bye a piekure! comas along and suups.at-.ihc oscillating minnow. Thu hi ok catches him before he knows it, and then the bottle begins to scoot under the water or scud along on the surface. ' The natives in the boat may be pl.i ing seven-tip or whisky poker, 'but the minute the bottle begins to skip they drop every thing and begin to pull out the llask as though a sea serpent was after them. When the bottle is captured and the big squirming pickorel re moved from the line, the hook is re bated and the. tackle thrown over board again. Lazy way of fishing? I suppose eo, but there's heaps of fun iu it when you have a score or more boltlos riding around you, It beats the polo all hollow.

Tho City Council of Oakland, Cal., has recently done two v.ry wise " things: First, iu passing au ordi nance making it a misdemeanor for boys under the age of 16 to smoke.1 cigarettes in any public place ; and second, iu parsing a "curfew" ordi nance, requiring the city hall bell to rung at nine o'clock every evening, alter which hour every young person under th age of 16 must go directly home and keep within doors until morning. Cigarette smoking by young boys has become an alarming evil in Oak land and other cities, and the ordit n-tneo referred to can not fail to havo a good sanitary effect, while it will also accomplish much moral good otherwise. In nine cases out of ten (ho boy who gets the habit of cigar- .11. fiMaf.lt.w waII rfkl nnAii'liini will have his days largely shortened and never amount to much in any way. An inveterate cigarette or cigar smoker gives very little promise of any very extended or useful future. A large proportion of that class fall into the ranks of dullards, while ill are more or less affected with a weak brain and decided lack of stamina. The German government under stands this matter fully and has placed its interdict upon the habit with boys of under age, giving as the reason that a young man who thus abuses himself can never make an effective or useful soldier; and all mule Germans are required to give at least three jears of their lives from the age of 21 to 2-1 to active duties as a soldier in catnp, -To be service able to the government it is consid ered necessary that thoy should not allow their intellect and physical strength to be undermined with the pernicious habit; and the Germans as a nation are the greatest smokers in the world. But under present laws they are not allowed to incur the habit until the phystcm has become fully devel-r oped and iu a better condition to withstand the poisoning and debili? tat ing inlluencej of tobacco.
