notwithstanding all that 1 have done

to do, is not appreciated by you, ami
that you seek to make a light with
this company. 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. I
will take great pleasure in being quite
a.s ungenerous towards you as I havo
heretofore been generous. I can as
sure you furthermore that while I am
generally agreeable, and accommodat

make things very uncomfortable. I
propose to speak lo you plainly iu
this matter, and in words that you
may not misunderstand, and when I
say that if you supply one single foot
of lumber into Tombstone market at
any such rales as those proposed, or
in any way enter into direct compe
tition with me here, I will see that
you cannot make enough out of your
lumber to pay the freight. If you
enter into competition with us else

The funeral of the late E.Iwarc!
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.
May his ashes rest iu peace.

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
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?.
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.

"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 :
"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. The day I was
up there the lake was just covered

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
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

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
