TOMBSTONE EPITAPH: TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, SATUEDAT MAECH 29, 1890.
TOMBSTONE EPITAPH. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY BY MEEK &. MADERO. Fourth Street, between Fremont and Allen Tombstone, CocHse CountY. Arizona. ENTERED IN THE P33T OFFICE AS SECOND-CLASS MATTER. By request the article on disincor poration is republished, and will be found elsewhere. The disincorporating question in a nutshell: Heads, the committee and their friends win ; tails, the commun ity' at large loses. Taking everything into considera tion, the people of the city could af ford to pay $2,000 a year merely to keep the city water works going, and then quit winner. The Epitaph congratulates Mr. Chcyney on the successful termina tion of his suit, and also on the fact tint it is owing to his course that the affairs of the Territory are now in a fair way to he straightened out. W. E. Guild, of Florence, is an nounced as a candidate for the office of Internal Revenue Collector for the district of Arizona and New Mexico. Mr. Guild is an old time Republican, a capable man and would make a good oiiicer. Judging from the disparaging re marks about the city water works that appear in the bladder from day to day, which are evidently inspired, and also that the report of the disincorporating committee is undoubtedly being run as an advertisement, it is apparent that there is a nigcer in the woodpile. Are the small taxpayers of the city going to vote for a proposition that will surely double their expenses in one of the necessaries of life in order to save six bits a year the difference between one and a half per cent and three-quarters of one per cent? Well, hardlv. " For this portion of Arizona this has been an extremely dry winter, and stock is suffering owing to the short ness of grass on the ranges. From a gentleman who came in a few days since from the Huachucas,it is learned that the stock in that section look poorly, and if rain does not come soon there will b'e heavy losses. The Nogales Herald professes to have information that Tombstone peo ple intend leaving here by platoons to settle in Nogales. Wrong, Jim. Maybe you have been listening to a sort of tramp who was in Tombstone recently pretending to be the agent of the Record. His assertions should be taken with about a ton of salt. The graceless hypocrite running the Star makes a scurrilous reflection on Hon. J. H. Hoadley, who died at Bisbce a few days since. Even if Mr. Hoadley was the unfortunate victim of the habit spoken of by the Star, i was no business of that paper to pub lish it, as it only concerned himself and his friends, and public mention of it subserved no good purpose. In regard to the alleged deal of the Common Council in the matter of the water works, a few words of. explana tion may not be amiss. The city be came the possessor of this piece of property in 1883, some years before the passnge of the present city charter, and have ever since been trying to perfect their title, and consequently the action of the Council does not come under the head of buying or Belling real estate, but is simply pro tecting the city's titlo to a valuable piece of properly that had been pro cured years before the passnge of the present city" charter. The Council would be guilty of criminal negligence should they neglect any precaution to protect the city's interests. Let us reason together. Admit everything as true tha; is contained in the report of the "disingenuous" com niittee, and how much saving will there be to the inhabiiants of the city? By the report a possible saving of 4,000 a year is shown. Now suppose another view is taken. There are enough consumers of city water to bring the receipts up to $300 per month in found numbers. If by any mischance the city water works should be shut down does any one of the con sumers doubt for a moment that their water bill would be doubled, at least, aud $3,G00 a year be added to the ex pinses of the people of the town? Even should the most sanguine hopes held out by the committee be realized, and such movements never attain a complete success, the saving is only Jour hundred dollars a year, instead of $4,000. Considering the danger of losing the city water works are the people going to vote for disincorpora tiou to save $400 a year? The decision of the Supreme Court places Wolfley in a still worse light. By its decision declaring all the acts of the legislature legal the court con victs him of being a lawbreaker when he refused to call the constitutional convention, and practically says that his assumption of the role of our savior by rushing off to Washington was the height of absurdity. Governor Wolfley is something like a person who gets into a bed of quicksand his desperate efforts to get out of his un pleasant situation only result in get ling him deeper into the mire. General Crook died of heart dis ease in Chicago on the 21st instant. Thus closes an active and honorable carper. By his death the army loses a gallant and capable officer, and one who served his country to the best of his ability when good soldiers and patriots were needed. General Crook had a deserved reputation as a suc cessful 'Indian fighter, which was gained in his younger days. Of late years he has disappointed many of his warm admirers by the course ho has pursued'in regard to the Apaches, and more especially by his recent efforts to procure the removal of Geronimo and his band to the Indian reservation, which the people of the southwest rightly regarded as seriously threaten ing a repetition in the near future of the horrors of another Apache out break. As General Crook was the one who was pushing the removal idea be fore Congress, and as ho had more weight and influence than all the other advocates combined, it is proba ble that owing to his death the scheme will be abandoned and peace be there by assured to our citizens. For this we should give thanks. The long r xpected decision of the Supreme Court in the mandamus case of Superintendent Cheyney against Territorial Treasurer Smith, to com pel payment of the former's salary, has been rendered, and it declares that all the acts of the legislature are legal, and thereby, decides that all of Wolf- ley's appointees are legally entitled to the various offices to which they were appointed. While it is gratifying to -Tombstone pride" that it was one of our citizens who had the courage to bring matters to a settlement by car rying his case into court and that he won, and thereby gained a victory for all the other appoin'ees, the mere procurement of the offices is of sec ondary consideration. What is of more moment, and what will please our citizens most, is that part of the decision declaring that the acts of-the last legislature are legal. This deci sion, if the Democratic holdovers have a spark of decency or political sense left, which is doubtful, will straighten -ut our affairs, inspire a feeling of confidence, relieve our laws of every doubt cast on their legality, and allow the business and affairs of our Terri tory to flow smoothly along their ac customed channels. "Buzfuz," the Phenix correspondent of the Florence Enterprise, makes a strong plea in favor of a people's movement, to be general throughout the Territory, for the purpose of elect ing members of the legislature next November. In his communication he bewails the corruption and inefficiency of the last three legislatures with which Arizona has been cursed, and in his estimate there will be found but few to disagree with him That it is highly necessary for the welfare of the Territory that a different ciass of men bhould be sent to the legislature no one will deny, but the feasibility of the plan proposeil is doubtful. A people's movement has never yet been inaug urated in which party politics did not figure. According to the community in which a people's party has been organized, just so surely will either the Republican or Democratic party ab sorb it, and its purpose be thereby de feated. If "Buzfuz" is in earnest, be he Republican or Democrat (and we judge him to be a Republican), his best chance of success would be for him and his friends to bend all their energies to the procurement of the nomination of competent men for the legislature by the Republican party in his county. This mode of procedure is more likely to be productive of good results that for the reformers to waste i heir energies in the attempt to build up a third party. The great trouble has been that the citizens of the Ter ritory at large who have the greatest interests at stake have considered that it was beneath them to take an in terest in politics, and especially in primaries, leaving them altogether in the hands of professionals, and then when knaves or fools are placed in no mination and elected they set back, suck their thumbs and "howl." They are to blame and deserve the treat ment they receive, and the condition of affairs will not improve until this class of citizens undergo a change of heart, get down off their pinnacle of exclusiveness and mingle with the common herd in looking out for their general iuterejts. In a published interview Hon. Mark Smith is credited with saying that our Supreme Court is under the influence of the Florence Canal Company. If Mr. Smith wa3 guilty of using such reprehensible language it is sincerely to be regretted. We had a better opin ion of him, not believing that he would allow his partisan feelings to drag him to the contemptible depths occupied by those gutter snipe politi cians who made the scurvy fight against the present judges. Mr. Smith knows, as well as any man, that there is not one particle of evidence to support his assertion. And again, by reason of his position, Mr. Smith should be more careful of his language, as by reason of his prominence more weight is given to his utterances than those of an ordinary private citizen. More over. Mr. Smith should recollect that it was not entirely by Democratic votes that he holds his present posi tion; that hundreds of Republican voters in Cochise scratched their party candidate and voted for him through feelings of personal friendship, and he should not gratuitously insult them by attempting to asperse the character of our judges, which practice cannot bo too severely condemned. If Mr. Smith is guilty of expressing the sentiment attributed to him, and he should be a candidate for re-election next fall, the Republicans of Cochise would better subserve the interests of the Territory by standing by their colors, rather than vote for a man who is trying to destroy the usefulness of our highest tribunal of justice. Died t 110. Sra. Maria Ayala, mother-in-law of Delfino Higuera, tlied in Florence on Wednesday evening, aged nearly 110 years. She was born in Mexico, on August 23, 1780. Her oldest living son is now about 60 years of age. Her health had been good during the whole of her life and up to a few days ago shewas able to sew and do her own cooking. Such Temarkable in stances of longevity are rarely met with, but in this case the fact of her age is well authenticated by documen tary evidence. Florence Enterprise. a e nixh-Powcr Incandescent Lights. According to Kuhlow it is now possi ble to produce incandescent lamps of 3,ooo cmdle power. These lamps, which have been named high candle power in candescent lamps, like all incandescent lamps have a uniform clear yellow I'ght, whereas the arc lamps, which are at present alone employed in illuminating great spaces, have the well known un pleasant bluish light and burn very un steadily. The incandescent lamps hardly require any maintenance; they burn for i.ooo hours without supervision, and they are therefore much cheaper than the arc lamps, which require constant attention, besides caming great expense for charcoal. The high candle power incandescent lamps are therefore likely to soon drive out entirely the arc lamps, and the electric light will then become still cheaper and more popular, as the incandescent lamps yield a perfectly nat ural light and now also a light in suffi cient volume to meet all requirements. Engineering and Mining Journal. Fast Ihilroad Time. The best lime ever recorded in the history of railroading was made in a late run over the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe system between Bakeisfield and Lathrop, a distance of 220 miles, the distance being accomplished in 205 min utes. This is the greatest speed ever made in a continuous run for such a dis tance with one engine. The engine was of the Stevens type and built in 1885. Her drivers were 5 feet 10 inches and she burned 3 tons of coal durinsj the run. The greatest speed attained was one mile in 45 seconds, the fastest on 'ecord by 5X seconds. The best time made for a stretch was io miles in 8 minutt-s, or a little more than 45 7 seconas per mile. The train was m ide up of two officials' coaches, and r.m as a special, passing nine trains on the run, indicating some nice work by the dis patchers .

The mill at. the St. Patrick mine is nearly finished, and from all reports it will be complete in every particular. It is expected that every thing will, be in readiness to start up by the 1st of April. About one thousand tons of ore' is out and a large force of miners will soon be put on at both the St. Patrick and San Francisco mines. In the St.. Patrick mine very high grade ore is now being taken from 150 feet depth. On the. San Francisco the ledge shows eight feet in width, with a very high grade average. Wood is being cut and delivered at the mill at $1.50 per cord. The dam will ho com pleted this week. Over eight3--five tons of machinery etc., was hauled from Calabasas to the mine, without the breakage or loss of the smallest item. Last but not least, apparently. Major Read one of the owners, and the manager, is one of the happiest men that comes into town. Mr. Alonzo Nuon came in last Mon day with about one ton of ore from the Ready Cash mine the returns from which was 555 ounces silver. He informed our reporter that the Ready Cash was one of the best ore producers in that district. A large amount of development work had been done and considerable ore taken out the princi pal part of which is .shipped to the Socorro smelter. This mine is owned and worked by Messrs. McNamara and McNally. Mr. Noon also brought in a few hundred pounds of ore that he had taken out of the McNally mine, which went 382 ounces per ton, silver. This mine is owned by John McNally and Charles Christ, but Mr. Noon has a lease of it. A gentleman in from the Oro Blanco district reports the outlook there as very favorable. Some new strikes have been made and the owners are all hopeful. Dr. Noon has one of the best and richest mines, the Osterliiz, in the district; employs twelve men and is taking out about ten tons of rich ore per day which is treated at the Arivaca mill owned by Messrs. Royce and Bogan. The Jenkins Bros have a good group of mines and are now erecting a five stamp mill on the properly. The new body of ore struck lately by Col. Holden is excep tionably good and as there is a large body of it, it is believed to be a bon- anza. The Royce and Bogan 20-stamp mill, at the Yellow Jacket mine is nearing completion. In fact the whole country thereabouts presents a lively appearance. Nogales Record. YITMA. Max Engasser is in town from the Knoxville mining district and favored the Sen inel with the following relia ble information concerning the camp. There has been but little work done at Leonaville this year, with -the ex ception of on the Northern Belle mine, which has opened up a vein of leu feet across, averaging twenty dollars in gold to the ton. The quartz in many places shows free gold and aver ages the above amount right through ; selected ore of course running higher. The ore is free milling and there is a sufficient, quantity already "blocked out" to satisfy anyone as to the value of the property. A spring of fine water right at the mine furnishes all the water necessary for working the property, and iron wood a3 well as palo verde is plentiful in the immediate vicinity. When a mill is built to work the ores in Knoxville, the water ne cessary can be obtained from several large springs a short distance from Leonaville which is the main camp in the district. The Northern Belle mine is owned by Mr. Engasser, and is about thirty-five miles north from George W. Norton's house in the Mohawk valley. Articles of incorporation of the Pioneer Placer Mining Company have been tiled in the office of the County Recorder. The company is organized under the laws of the State of Mis souri, and John H. Behan is the ac; credited agent for the Territory of Arizona. The objects of the incor poration are to "purchase and hold lands in Yuma county, in the Terri tory of Arizona, for mining and work ing 6ame or selling said property in town lots or otherwise, for merchan dising or mining supply stores in said county of Yuma." This company takes in land that is known as the Cushenbary placer enterprise. The names of the incorporators, and the directors for the first years, are J. B. Lawrence, James A. Mann, Charles E Wilson, John P. Jackson, and James D. Cushenbary. Sentinel. Reliable advices from Harqua Hala bring the information that a party of Colorado capitalists are visiting the mines with a view of making heavy purchases. The members control capital reaching up into the millions. All the mines in the camp are open ing up well, and the story is not half told. Frank Wells and company have struck an immense body of rich oro which increases in size as greater depth is attained. There is a rumor afloat that an im mense deposit of rock salt has been found on the west side of North Wash in Silver District, three miles from the Colorado. About ten years ago a nar row Peam of salt was found in that section, but nothing was thought of it at the time. If the new strike is any thing as "big" as reported it will be a profitable find for the owner. Sen tinel. YAVAPAI. The Axtell Mining Company is the name of a new organization which proposes to jengage in mining opera tions here. It is composed of Iowa and Minnesota capitalists, having been formed by W. W. Vanderbilt, during his visit east. They have put up a working capital of $25,000 to com mence operations on. Large specimens of ore from the Wild Flower mine, near Del Pasco which are on exhibition at Bashford & Burmister's store, show that there is a large compact body of ore in the mine. It is high grade, being gold sulphurcts containing some silver. Big Bug placer miners are said to be washing out lots of gold. W. A Long, formerly foreman of this office, has turned prospector, and lias succeeded 111 Uncling some very promising ledges, as well as good placer ground. The Howard mill, on the Hassay am pa, is running on half time. President J. C. Brown and G. J, Baer, of the Quartz Mountain Mining company returned yesterday from that property. They report the mill still running. The company is also .shipping a lot of high grade ore. . President DoKuhn, of the Mocking bird mining company is arranging for the construction of a new dam. Journal-Miner. GILA. Workon the Buffalo copper claim is progressing, with favorable indica tions for the opening up of good bodies of ore. Only prospecting work is being done, to determine the extent and value of the deposit, but about 120 tons of excellent ore has been taken out, some oi which assays 30 per cent. At the Fame mine considerable rich ore is beinsr stoped. The company re cently received a large quantity of quicksilver, and expect to start their mill within a few weeks. Silver Belt, a A New Discovery. Some two or three weeks since our townsmen, W. H. Ashurst, Wm. Mor ris and John Marshall went on a pros- peeling lour through the Grand Canon ol the Colorado river. They went with a full belief that valuable min erals lay. imbedded in some part of mother earth in that part of the moral vineyard. They were gone about two weeks and returned to Flagstaff with specimens of ore, which we are in formed were assayed at Prescott What the exact result ot the assay was, wo are not sufficiently advised to state as we have heard different re suits, but to say the least of it, the parties were encouraged so much by the returns, that they again returned to the scene of their former discovery, We are informed that, they intend sending a lot of it ofT to have it run so as to cct the exact value. This news aroused attention, and Niles Cameron, who took a trip through the canon last summer, broke off some pieces of rock and brought them home as curiosities, thinking nothing more of them, until this week he bro' e one of the pieces of rock in two, and to his utter astonishment found a nugget of gold about of an inch in length and about as large around as a pencil. Several parties have left this week for the canon, among them are: Niles Cameron, EJ. Gale, P. D. Berry, Geo. Rogers, Root. Johnson, Fletcher Fairchild, James Lamport, James Catherins Ferguson, Ben Doney and one or two others, whose names we failed to get.

Visitors are sure of a warm welcome. A FEWJVORDS. f he committee appointed at a meet ing of citizens held some time since to devise ways and means to reduce city taxation, has made a report. It is quite a lengthy document and bristles with figures, and its whole substance is summed up in the two concluding oaragraphs recommending as the sole means of reducing taxa tion the necessity of disincorporating, The gentlemen composing the com mittee are all well known citizens of Tombstone, and we doubt nothat they believe they are acting for their best interests and of the general pub lic. But in this a number of our citi zens differ with them. In the use of figures they are not correct, having made a mistake in the statement of the city's indebtedness, and in the statement that the city indebtedness now exceeds the 4 per cent limit set by the Harrison act. Following is statement of the city indebtedness, as taken from the books, and which our readers can rely on as being correct : General fund indebtedness...? 9,169 23 Interest on same 2,715 36 Contingent fund outstanding 2,105 38 Outstanding bonds 4.250 00 Interest on same 106 00 $18,345 97 869 67 Cash in treasury. Total indebtedness of city. .$17,476 30 This demonstrates that the city's indebtedness, to be exact, is $1,479.90, less than shown to be by the commit tee's statement; and it also shows that the 4 per cent limit has not been reached, as follows : Four percent on $454,423.36, last year's assessment.. . .$18,177 13 Present city indebtedness.. 17.476 30 Leaving a margin of $ 700 83 This disposes of this scarecrow set up by the committee. Another strong point sought to be made by the committee is that the Common Council, not being under bonds, is at liberty "at any time to sell the pumps and thus practically de stroy the city water works. As no City Council has ever attempted to do anything of the sort, it can be taken for granted that it will not be done, and for the reason that the electors about whom the committee complain as having a voice in the matter would not permit it. That the electors have a voice in the sale of city property is one of the best safeguards for its re tention. The city water works effects a saving to every poor family and per son using it of from $24 to $120 a .year, and it is not at all probable that the people thus benefited will vote away this particular piece of property. This should allay all fears that the city will lose its water works through any such means. Again, the committee is not happy in its choice of illustrations. After quoting the law restraining the City Council from selling any real estate belonging to the city without a vote, and ingeniously raising the fear that they viay sell the water works, they quote from the law under which they propose to reincorporate the city, as follows "The Board of Trustees shall also have the power to sell and convey. lease or rent any real or personal prop erty, provided that no sale of any property shall be enteied into or made by the trustees until a resolu tion of such intention shall have been published in some newspaper in the corporation for at least two weeks," etc. It will be observed that this.Eection throws no obstacle whatever in the way of a corrupt Board of Trustees selling any city property they might wish to. All they would have to do is to give notice that it teas their inten tion to sell, and in spite of all protests they could consummate any nefarious job. The committee, according to their report, show a possible saving of $4,000 a year, but they say nothing ofi the thousands saved to our citizens by the maintenance of the city water works, which amounts to three or four times the sum that is alleged would be saved under the new plan. And this saving is to the benefit of people who can ill afford any increase in their expenditures. In fact, this whole question of dis- incorporation seems, notwithstanding the committee's disclaimer, to revolve around the city water works. The people of the city know, that under the present city government the water works are safe, and that they are the means of saving to them thousands of dollars annually in the matter of wa ter rates. If the city is disincorpo rated, the danger is that the holders of city bonds and warrants will make such pressing demands for payment that it will be considered necessary to sell all the city property to meet the claims, and our citizens would be left at the mercy of a monopoly in one of the prime necessaries of life. The committee say nothing about the manner in which the present City Council has conducted the business affairs of the city. No mention is made of the fact that the city debt has been decreased over $4,000 during the past year, besides the saving thereby made in the interest charge. Without wishing to cast any reflec tions on any one of the gentlemen composing the committee, we say that the report is misleading in that it does not make a true statement of facts, and that the whole movement appears to be a job on the part of some one to gain control of the city water works. The city government is being eco nomically administered, the debt is being decreased, and it would seem to be the part of wisdom to bear the evils we have than fly to those we know not of.
