TQMBSTOUIC EPITAPH : TOMBSTONE, AEIZONA, SATURDAY, JULY 14 1888.
TOMBSTONE EPITAPH. REPPY & PEOK, Publishers. Feurth Straet, between Fremont and Allen Tombstone, Cochise County, Arizona. Subscription, one year $4 c0 INTERCO IN THE POST OFFICE AS SECOND-CLASS MATTE. OFFICIAL PAPER OF COCHISE COUNTY THE PRINTING CONTRACT. The Prospector, in its zeal to crush Supervisor White, has made a mis-statement of facts. The advertisement of the Board, as published in the EPITAPH, called for advertising and also for all printing, "consisting of tax receipts, etc., and all other job woik required by the county." Strange enough, the proposals of the Epitaph and Prospector for doing the advertising were identically the same, and very naturally the Board recog nized the superiority of th Epi taph as an advertising medium and awarded it the contract. In the matter of the job printing, on the only item specified by the Board, (tax re ceipts) the Epitaph's bid was $4.50 per 1000 aud the Prospettor's $6. Both papers fcVrwto the error of bidding on complaints, warrants and indictments, which were not advertised for, a supply to last six months being on hand, and very properly that portion of the bids was thrown out. The statement of the Prospector that Supervisor White explained to Mr. Phil lips that the county would need no print ing done outside of tax receipts is ridicu lously false on its face. Mr. White did rrquest the Clerk of the Board to go to the District Cleik and the Sheriff aud learn if "warrants, complaints and in dictments" would be needed in the next six months, and the Clerk returned and reported' that those officers had a full supply ot the blanks named on hand. The proprietor of the Prospector was probably aware of this fact, for he very well knows that the white paper for 1000 indictments would cost him more money than the sum specified by by him in his bid, hence he could safely have put in his bid on that item at one cent per thousand as well. In this case sharp practice didn't work. The statement that Supervisor Phil lips was led to believe that tax receipts would be the only class of job printing required by the county in the coming six months.ls either untrue or it displays a wonderful lack of knowledge of county affair on the part of that gentleman. We give Mr. Phillips the benefit of the doubt and discredit the statement. No, the trouble is this: the mantle of the Nashes has fallen on a man with a mission who doesn't know even a little bit about the printing business. As an agitator he has been trying to correct the fancied wrongs of this community (or years, and he has tailed absolutely, and in consequence has become soured. He is an industrious fellow, and by rushing his own business has much time to de vote to other people's. Here he makes a mistake; he had much better devote that time to improving his mind and developing a Christian spirit. Don't accuse people wrongfully; speak of men as you find them, and your pathway will be strewn with roses. Otherwise the trail will be stony and decidedly thorny. Take a friend's advice. Politics, thank Heavenl do not enter into the present squabble over the county printing. A majority of the Board of Supervisors are Democrats, so are the editor and proprietor of the Prospector, peor things! while the. Epitaph is run by the rankest sort of red-hot Republi cans, who believe that Harrison is all right and will get there. This fact does not prevent us from conceding that the present, Board of Supervisors will com pare favorably with any that has 'had charge of Cochise county affairs. The Epitaph regrets to learn the financial embarrassment of the Old Guard Mining Company, which, under the superintendence of Mr. George R. Williams, has.developed a fine mine. A circular recently issued by the directors in London calls for a loan of $125,000, secured by a first mortgage on the property. There is small room for doubt that with such excellent security no diffi culty will be encounted in raising the money. James G. Blaine has closely studied the labor question in foreign lands and he says: The issue of protection is in calculably stronger and greater than any man, for it concerns the prosperity of the present and of generations yet to come. Were it possible for every voter of the Republic to see for himself the condition and recompense of labor in Europe, the party 'of free trade in the United States would not receive the support of one wage worker between the two oceans. "Rum, Romanism and Rebellion" Burchard is now openly supporting Cleveland. Had he done so in 1884 Cleveland would never have been Presi dent. He then asserted that Democracy was composed of rum, Romanism and rebellion. Now that he is one of the Democracy will he make the same dec laration ? Another good Democrat h1s gone. Thos. C. BrufT, a well-known Democrat and treasurer for 15 years, of the Balti more school board, turned up missing on the discovery of some irregularities in his cash accounts. In the coming cam paign the services of himself and "Hon est Dick Tate" will be missed by the virtuous Democracy. WHAT TROUBLES THXAS. Governor Ross of Texas recently gave a few facts about the finances of this state that comport with its magnitude. Its bonded indebtedness, mostly held in the state, in rouni numbers is $4,500, 000. Like Uncle Sam it is troubled with a surplus that it don't know what to do with. It has in the general state treas ury, a surplus of more than $2,000,000. Its school fund has a surplus of $16,000, 000, more than half loaned out on county and railroad bonds, and they are seeking an investment for the balance. The farmers to whom the state has been sell ing its land on forty years' time with only five per cent interest, in the hope thai they would be very dilatory about paying the principal, are pilii g in the moaey on the overburdened State Treasurer. The counties are doing the same. To add to its misery the state has 30,000,000 acres of land yet to sell, which are bringing every year higher and higher prices. Poor Texas! Let every nation and in dividual on the face ef the earth thit is sighing "for lack of a dollar or two" dro( s a tear over the loity loneliness of the mel ancholy state. American Banker, NORTH AND SOUTH. "Bill Arp" gets off the following in the Atlanta Constitution, which by the way is not so bad: "Hurrah for Cleveland! I will say that every time. But I am like "Pope Barrow" about Thurman. I don't care anything about him and for the best reason in the world he don't care any thing about me. He hurt my feelings with malice aforethought. He made a Hong Kong goose of himself about Henry R.Jackson's speech in Macon and our tribute too Mr. Davis, and when it was all explained, he didn't have the manliness to make a decent apology. He is a little to uppity and blggity for us common folks. He thinks he is Jupiter and we are nothing but the moon. What was said or done at Macon was none of his business. He was hunting around and snuffing the air for treason and thought he had found it, and so he fired off an alarm gun and paved dirt and throwed mud and and so I have lost about 90 per cent of my respect for him and the other ten for his red bandana. When we elect Mr. Cleveland I want his life insured for four years, for I'm afraid of Thurman. Mrs. Arp has said all the time that the northern Democrats were no better at heart than the northern Re publicans, and she sticks to it. It is not a man's politics that makes him a gentle man. In fact, the Republicans of the North represent the wealth and refine ment of their people. They constitute their best society. The Democratic party of the North has got over seventy-five per cent of all the ragtag and bobtail element in it all the scurf of immigra tion that lands at the Battery. It is a pity that Ben Hill could not have car ried out his wishes as expressed in the Crittenden letter, and made up a new party, composed of the the better class of northern Republicans and southern Democrats. Such a party would have smothered the anarchists at their birth, and established our institutions and made our liberties more secure. I like these northern Republicans who are coming down here to mingle with us. They are shrewd and practical, and they art gen tlemen. I have met a dozen or $0 lately who are looking around for investments and I like them. I dined with a couple yesterday, and I sat between them, and got as much dinner as I wanted." 1 . . o REUARKABLE SHOWING FOR MOR MONDOM, The. great bulk of the people of Utah are agriculturalists. Their possessions are in land and herds. The statistics show that 90 per cent of Mormon fami lies own their own homes. There is no other community on earth which will make a like showing. There is not an almshouse, or the necessity for one, in any of the exclusively Mormon settle ments. With the exception of the mines every other industry in Utah is kept alive by Mormon labor and Mormon patronage. The Mormons supply the most reliable non-striking class of labor ers in tht whole inter-mountain region. The agricultural and pastoral products of Utah for 1887, according to the esti mates furnished by the Governor of the Territory, were sufficient to produce a total of more than $s,ooo,ooo. Delegate John T. Cain. 'I 1 t On the morning of tbe 4th of" July, the Phenix Gazette appeared one side printed with red ink and the other side with blue ink, which with the white margin presented quite a patriotic ap pearance, and it was generally accepted as a display of patriotism. But the secret is out, and it seems that the issue of many colors was a representation of the condition of its editor that morning who had been knocked red, white and blue the night previous in a street fight. Such is life in the far west Tucson Star. Frank H. Lord, well known here as a former resident of this place, has accept ed the position of resident agent for Geo. Gould (son of Jay Gould) and his asso ciates at Malaga, Spain. This is an ex tensive commission turn that does an immense business and it is understood that Mr. Lord will be offered a partner ship at the end of five years.

Cleveland Advltci Against the Purchase ef tht Whito Metal. Albany, February 24, 1885. To Hon. A. J. Warner and Others Memb rs of the Fosty-eighth Congress Gentlemen: The letter which I havt had the honor to receive from you in vites, and indeed obliges me, to give ex pression to some grave public necessities, although in advance of the moment whei. they would become the object of my of ficial care and partial responsibility. Your solicitude that my judgment shall have been carefully and deliberate!) formed is entirely just, and 1 accept th suggestion in the same friendly spirit in which it has been made. It is also fully justified oy the nature of the financia crisis, which under the operation of tht Act of Congress of February 28, 1878, is now close at hand. By compliance with the requirement of that law, all the vaults of the Federal Treasury have been and are heaped full of silver coins which are now worth les than 85 per cent ol the gold dollar pre sented as "the unit of value" in Section 14 of the act of February 12, 1873, and which with silver certificates, represent ing'such coin, are receivable for all pub lic dues, being thus receivable, while also constantly increasing in quantity at the rate of $28,000,000 a year. It has followed of necessity that the flow of gold into the Treasury has been steadily diminished. Silver and silver certificates have displaced and are now displacing gold, and the sum of gold in the Feder al Treasury now available for the pay ment of the gold obligations of the Uni ted States and for the redemption of United States notes called "greenbacks," if not already encroached upen, is per ilously near such encroachment. These are facts which, as they do not admit of a difference of opinion, call for no argument. They have been forewarn ed to us in the official reports of every Secretary of the Treasury from 1878 till now. They are plainly affirmed in the last December report of the present Secretary of the Treasury to the Speaker of the present House of Representatives. They appear in the official documents ot this Congress and in the records of the New York Clearing house of which the Treasury is a member, and through which the bulk of the receipts and pay ment of the Federal Government and the country pass. These being the facts of our present condition, our danger and our duty to avert that danger would seem to be plain. I hope you concur with me and with the great majority of our fellow citizens in deeming it most desirable, at the present juncture, to maintain and continue in use, the mass of gold coin as well as the mass of silver already coined. This is possible by the present suspen sion of the purchase and coinage of si! ver. I am not aware that 'by any other method it is possible. It is of momen tous importance to prevent the two metals parting company. To prevent the increasing displacement of gold by the increasing coinage of silver, to pre vent the disuse of gold In the custom houses of the United States in the daily business of the people, to prevent the ultimate expulsion of gold by silver. Such is the financial crisis which these events would eventually precipitate. Were it now to follow upon so long a period of commercial depression it would involve the people of every city and every State in the Union, and prolonged and disastrous trouble would ensue. The business enterprise and prosperity so ardently desired and apparently so near would be hopelessly postponed. Geld would be withdrawn to the hoarding- places, and an unprecedented contraction in the actual volume of our currency would speedily take place. Saddest of all, in every workshop, mill, factory store, and on every railroad and farm, the wages of labor, already depressed, would suffer still further depression by the scaling down of the purchasing power of the so-called dollar paid into the hand of toil. From these impending calamities it is surely the most patriotic and grate ful duty of the representatives of the people to deliver them. I am, gentlemen, with sincere respect, your fellow-citizen, Grover Cleveland. Unnecessary Misery. Probably as much misery comes from habitual constipation as from any de rangement of the functions of the body, and it is difficult to cure, for the reason that no one likes to take the medicines usually prescribed. HAMBURG FIGS were prepared to obviate this difficulty, and they will be found pleasant to the taste of women and children. 25 cents. At all druggists. J. Mack & , pro prietors, S. F There will be no new registration this year in Pima county, the Board of Super visors having failed to give the required notice within the time specified by law. The Great Register of 1886 will therefore hold good. It is the duty, however, of the County Recorder to erase therefrom any and all names of parties that have died or moved away since the last regis tration. All parties whose names are not already on said register can, by ap plication to the nearest justice, have them placed thereon, the justice being, a legally appointed officer for that purpose.
