TOMBSTONE EPITAPH. BEPPT &TE0K, Publishers. ' Feurth Street, between Fremont and Allen Tombstone, Cochise County, Arisona. Subscription, one jear. .$4 oo CNTERCD IN THt KT OFFICE AS SECOND-CLMS MATTM. 0FFIO1AL PAPER OF COCHISE COUNTY Isn't'it'about time for the local poli ticians to wake up, or arc offices going a-begging this year? Tjie people of Arizona do not love Grover on account of the many carpet bagappointments hthas made. Eren the Albuquerque Democrat is complaining of the" wretched mail service the Cleveland administration is inflicting upon us Turn the fools out, and give the- rascals another.-chance will soon be come a popular cry. Ex-Governor John G. Downey of California, a life long Democrat, and as such ".well-known all over' the Pacific Coas(,has "publicly annoiincedthat he wilt vJjXragast and oppose with all power the-re-election ol Cleveland. The Prescott Courier says old-.timers in Arizona never quarrel over politics. They did in California, however, when the people of the Golden "State made it very'warm. for certain old-timers, and advised them to go to the Confederacy, where their sentiments and services would be j appreciated. Few of them ever got beyond Arizona, however, and thus they escaped the draft. Great thing, this being.an old-timer. The commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic" has issued a gen eral order, calling he attention of G. A. R. men to the non-partisan character of the organization, and cautioning veterans against the disposition manifested in some quarters to drag the order into politics,. ( As a majority of the old soldiers are now in the Democratic party the object of this order from the com mander was to prevent the forming of proposed Cleveland clubs within the organization. Albuquerque Democrat. If the Post in this city Is taken as a fair sample, about three per cent of the members of the Grand Army of the Re public are Democrats. The San Francisco Chronicle contains the following in regard to the Stewart mining bill; "Letters have been received from the mining regions asking for' information as to the effect of the bill introduced in Cn gres's by Senator Stewart of Nevada, amending fhejmjning laws. The follow ing answer to a telegram sent by the Mining Burevu was received and will interest miners:" , "Mining bifl is still pending before the House Committee' on Mines and Mining. Not probable "that jt will pass this ses sion. (Signed.)-" Wm. M. Stewart. Home rule hris not yet struck in on the President, not does he pay any at tention to the expressed wish of the Arizona Democracy, as expressed by resolution in. the Territorial Convention which met at Phenix in May last; but that is not to be wondered at when he Ignored, the platform of 1884, which he accepted as his political guide, in the performance of executive requirements. The action of the President jn his recent appointment of Elliott Sanford, of New York, to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of U.tah, and .John W. Judd, of Tennessee, to b,e Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Utah, must be quite refreshing to "the unanimous mem bers" ol the Phenix convention, who by their vote demanded home rule and en dorsed the administration of Cleveland, the man who prevented the plank in the platform of 1884, in that regard, from being carried into effect, thus stultifying themselves and the Democracy whom they represent, and who accepted the dual situation, Globe Silver Belt. 1 . , , ' , WHERE MR. BLAINE STANDS. From the New York Graphic. (Dem.) The World's London correspondent gives'.Mr. Blaine credit for sincerity in refusing to labor for the Republican nomination, in not wanting it, and his determination not to" accept it unless it came, tpjiim by acclamation. It is rea sonable to do this, outside of the little matters'of fair judgment and laith in the shrewdness and honesty of the human nature that belongs to politics. Demo crats carl afford to be fair, if the friends of the deteated candidates for the Chicago nomination cannot afford it, and the disposition to accredit everything to meanness and fraud is not worthy cr wise. Mr. Blaine was more than will ing that any other man should run, at the same time that he wouid have ac cepted if the nomination had come to him as the spontaneous choice of the Convention,. In that case he would have preferred not to run this year, but he would have had no right to refuse to run. If, however, anybody doubts Mr. Blaine's loyalty to General Harrison and party, he had better hasten to undeceive himself. We do not believe Cleveland and Thurman can be beaten. That ticket is S"e strong that it is likely to revolutionize some States that are conceded to the Republicans. But Mr. Blaine will be a power for it that no other dozen men might furnish. He will reach New York late in July, and there will be accorded him a reception that will make everybody forget Harri son except as Mr. Blaine's choice and representative in this canvass. He will stump the country, beginning early in August, "and will command any amount and quality of enthusiasm that will be brilliant and great, though undoubtedly evanescent. He has the Republican party at his back, and it will follow the white plumes before election as it would folUw no other Republican emblem, however it may. do the little act of voting for Harrison on election day. There is no question as to Mr. Blaine's honesty and loyalty. The .thing for Harrison and Morton to consider is the honesty of the Republican party; If Harrison might be elected Mr. Blaine would undoubtedly be his Secre tary of: State: In that place he would distinguish himself, as he did in his very brief but "very "brilliant and somewhat dangerous administration of it from March to July, :88i. But with Harri son beaten he will be quite as fortunate. As the idol of the Republican party he need do nothing to keep himself at the front of tht organization, and he can have the nomination by acclamation in 1892 as the resurrectionist of the party" without liftine a finger. At that time Grover Cleveland will be out of the nominating ftddnd Kanybody can see, however good the second Clevelaad ad ministration may be, that Mr. Blaine will stand a far better chance of success than he would stand were he the nominee " 'That is the position that Mr. Blaine occupies; and anybody who questions his loyalty to his party, his general health, rhe shrewdness of his political judgment or the power f his presence and voice, at home and on the stump will find that-he has done injustice to both Mr. Blaine and.himself. RESULTS OF. FREE TRADE IN GREAT BRITAIN. From Sir Edward Sullivan's letter to the Man chester Courier. Cheapness, cheapness, cheapness and competition!. These have been the par rot cries ol Free-traders; and excellent cries the'y'are'for the 1,300,000 lucky in dividuals with their Axed incomes; but how about the 32,800,000 without fixed incomes?" How dees it affect them? What does competition and cheapness mean in their case? It means this it means that when by home competition a starving needle-woman is found to stitch shirts at 4d a dozen, straightway starving foreign woman is found to stitch shirts at 3d per dazen, and her work is brought over here t drive the English women below starving point! This is competition! This is cheapness? And does it benefit the community? The first condition of this much-vaunt ed cheapness, this panacea of the Cob den Club, is cheap laber; do not let the operatives forget" this when they have dinned into their ears the virtues of mere cheapness. Js a3ow price of corn that is secured by stimulating foreign produc tion and discouraging home production a national blessing? Is it a national bless ing when the English and Scotch labor ers are deprived of their employment in favor of the ill-paid labor of Russians, Poles, Wallachians, or Coolies? Are shirts stitched by starving women sit 4d a dozen, a blessing to the comrnun ity, or the cheapness ef bricks made by over-tasked children at noninal wages, or the cheapness of nails or cables made bv overworked women aad children a blessing? Is the waste of human life, the misery, and the suffering and demorali zation and immorality inseparable from cheap labor a benefit to the country? Is the cheapness that is caused by cheap foreign labor a national blessing? No, it is not and in spite of all the writings and preachings of the Cobben Club, I maintain that the more we examine the meaning of mere pheapaess, the more distinctly we find that it means a "low standard of life." Now, is it desirable to lower the stan dard of a nation's life? It is a fact, deny it who can, that "cheap places" in all fully settled countries have hitherto been these in which the working popr haye been the most degraded and the most depressed, and cheap times those in which they have been the most wretch ed. Owing to the unrestricted competition many of our manufacturing industries are dead; many are hopelessly sick. Our operatives are losing their work and their wages, vwrnxio unrestricted competi tion in agricultural produce, the land is going rapidly out of cultivation; the lab orers are, losing! their Vork, the stock of meat is rapidly diminishing and the price rising. Is there then no thern to this vaunted rose of competition! Unrestrict ed competition is cheapness, such as Freetraders are now forcing upon this country, must end by making the con dition of labor unbearable. Mr. Cham berlain says that England had been des cribed as the paradise of the rich, and he warns us not to allow it to became the purgatory of the poor. Can any means be conceived so cer tain of making it a purgatory of the poor as to encourage wild, unrestricted com petition that deprives our own workpeo ple of their 'work, and drives them lower and lower in the scale .of life? Look at it from any point you like, the question resolves itself into Protection or immi gration. If foreign competition is restrict ed, if native industry is protected, wages will rise, work will be steady, the land will again be brought into cultivation, stock will increase and the price of meat will falL It the present system of unre stricted competition is encouraged, in dustries will' disappear, more land will go out of cultivation, wages will fall, and the only escape, from a lower scale of life will be immigration.

The following is the lull text of Stewart's amendment to the general ap propriation bill, introduced by him on June 2d. It is not prnbable that the amendment will be carried at this ses sion of Congress, but indications are that next year it will become a law, as the majority seem to favor it: Amendment intended to be proposed by Mr. Stewart to the bill (H. R. 937J making appropriations for the legislative, executive and judicial expenses of the Government for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1888, and 'for other purposes, viz: That any person may deposit at any mint or assay office of the United States either gold or silver bullion, or both, in quantities of not less than five ounces of gold or eighty ounces of silver, and de mand and receive coin certificates there' for at the rate of one dollar in certifi cates for twenty-five and eight-tenths grains -Troy weight of standard gold nine-tenths fine; 'and at the rate of one dollar in certificates for four hundred and twelve and one half grains Troy weight of standard silver nine-tenths fine. The coin cerntkates issued under the provisions of this section shall be of such denominations as the Secretary of the Treasury shall prescribe: Provided, that they shall not be of less denomina tion than one- dollar or more than one thousand dollars, and that one half of the amount issued shall be in denomina tions less than fifty dollars, and shall be redeemable in gold or silver coin at the optian of the United States. And the Secretary of the Treasury shall cause to be coined from time to time such por tions of the bullion deposited under the provisions of this section as may be necessary to enable him to furnish coin for the redemption of such certificates. The coin certificates issued under the provisions of this section shall be a legal tender at their nominal value for all dues, public and private, except where other wise expressly stipulated in contracts heretofore made, and when such certi ficates shall be received for public dues they shall be reissued. And a sufficient sum to carry out the foregoing prov isions of this section is hereby appro priated out ef any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated. And the provision in section one of the act of February 28, 1888, entitled "An act to authorize the coinage of the standard dollar and to restore its legal tender character," which requires the Secretary of the Treasury to purchase at the mar ket price thereof not less than two million dollars' worth of silver bullion per month, nor' more than four million dollars' worth per month of such bullion, is hereby repealed.

SCROFULA I do not believe that Ayer'a Sarsaparilla has an equal as a cure for Scrofulous Hu mors. It la pleasant to take, gives strength to the body, and pro duces a more perma nent result than any medicine I ever used. E. Haines, North Lindale, Ohio.

TV.F.Fowler.M.D., Greenville, Tenn. a .For forty years I have suffered with Erysipelas. I have tried various remedies for my complaint, hut found no relief until I commenced' using Humors, Erysipelas, Canker, and Ayer'a 1. barsaparuia. After taking ten bot tles of this medicine I am" completely cored. M. 0. Amesbury, Catarrh, Roekport, Me. . I have suffered, for years, from uatarrn, wmen was so severe that it destroyed my appetite . and weak ened my system. After . trying other remedies, without re lief, I began to take Ayer'a Sarsaparilla, and, in a few months, was cured. Susan L. Cook, 909 Albany St., Boston, Mass. Ayer'a Sarsaparilla is superior to any blood purifier that I ever tried. I have taken it for Scrofula, Canker, and Salt Rheum, and received much benefit from it. It is good, also, for a weak stomach.
