TOMBSTONE EPITAPH: TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, SATURDAY APBIL 5, 1890.
TOMBSTONE EPITAPH. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MEEK &. MADERO. Fourth Street, between Premont andAllen Tombstone, Cochise County, Arizona. ENTERED ! THE POST OFFICE AS SECOND-CLASS MATTER. .One of the members of the Board ' of Supervisors remarked in the room on Tuesday last that Mr. EnglishVhad - the best of the argument all the way through, but that he should votlto. grant the petition. Comment is fch ' necessary. n The Epitaph has been laboring un- der the impression that this disincor poration business was merely a little family quarrel, and that politics cut no figure. But, judging from the names we have heard mentioned Jor the various offices under the proposed new government, there would appear to be a mistake out somewhere. How do the Democratic members of the citizens committee relish the idea of having only Republicans picked out for officers? By courtesy of Hon. M. A. Smith we are in receipt of his argument be fore the Committee on Territories in favor of the admission of Arizona as a State. Mr. Smith has been an advo cate of statehood ever since the agita- " tion began, and his effort before the committee ought to have convinced them that Arizona is equally prepared with Idaho and Wyoming to conduct her own affairs. But from the action of the committee, it is evident that Mr. Smith's argument fell on preju diced and unresponsive ears, and we will have to wait until the next Con gress. ' The fight over the division of Yava pai and Apache and the creation of a new county has already commenced in the newspaper of the counties men tioned. Unless the citizens of that section can come to an understanding it will doubtless be carried into the legislature next winter, the acrimo nious contest of last session be re-enacted and be productive of all sorts of trades and jobs. In the. interest of good, legislation the Epitaph hopes that the people of that section will settle their differences at the polls and come before the legislature with a friendly agreement concerning the prooosed division. Delegate Smith has secured favor able consideration of the bill allowing Arizona a fourth judge and providing that the Chief Justice shall redistrict the Territory, subject to revision by the legislature. The passage of this bill would be of great benefit to Ari zona and more especially to Tomb stone. By the t appointment of a fourth judge it is more than probable that Cochise and Graham would be erected into a district, with the resi dence of the judge fixed at Tomb stone, where would be held sessions of the United States Court, which would benefit Tombstone annually many thousands of dollars. The Phenix Gazette, in its wrath over the decision of the Supreme Court in the mandamus case of Su perintendent Cheyney, is not content with vilifying the Supreme Judges, but goes entirely outside the question and vents its surplus spleen by stig matizing the irrigating canal of the Florence company as a "dry ditch," and thus misrepresents and attempts to injure a section of our Territoiy that has a great future before it and is rapidly coming to the front. It is an ill bird that fouls its own nest, and the action of the Gazette in thus al lowing its political bias to so warp its sense of justice as to causelessly slan der a company and' community that are expending large sums of money to develop Arizona's resources cannot be too strongly condemned. . A few days since, in the light of the recent decision of the Supreme Court, Auditor Hughes went to Phe nix and demanded the surrender by ex-Auditor Meador of the books and records of the Auditor's office, but the latter refused to. give them up. It is passing strange that this Democratic holdover should persist in his mis guided course. By their actions these officials have gained neither profit nor honor, have succeeded in gaining the contempt of all right minded citizens and disarranged the business affairs of the Territory. It may be that these Democrats thought that by adopting such a course they would advance the interests of their party, but they have wofully blundered, and by persisting in such a course they are engaged in the manufacture of a large Republican majority, which will be apparent next fall. But, again, there may be some other reason for not wishing fo let go Little Steve didn't want to let go, neither did "Major" Smith. ' The Idaho admission bill has passed the House. The Board of Supervisors met last Tuesday to consider the petition for an election to do away with our pres ent form of city government. Shortly after the meeting had been called to order it became evident that every thing had been cut and dried before hand. The people who are opposed to the movement, for all the good it did them, might as well have staid away. Mr. English, who represented those opposed to the measure, offered to prove to the Board of Supervisors by the city assessment roll of last year that the petition did not contain a suf ficient number of names, but the Board declined to hear any tes timony on the subject, taking the un supported statements of the commit tee as facts. Messrs. White and Mont gomery stated in substance that, law or no law, they were in favor of grant ing the petition. This action of the Board is only in line with the course they have pursued ever since they took office. Breaking a law more or less makes no difi'erence to them. AS A31ERICAX JEKYLL. Writ ten for the Epitaph. James William Van Arsdale let no one deride Had been reading the story of Jekyll and Hyde, Till he traced a resemblance deny it who can In himself to that duM-yet singular man. Being a bank cashier, Van found it best To become a church member along with. the rest. 'And in this calm retreat of his various names, To the brethren and sisters he figured as James But, alas, for our natuie! Full oft on the sly Van Arsdale was given to games that are high; To poker. Veuve Cliquot whatever you will And amongst his boon comrades he answered to Bill. Now I ames being pledged to the temperance cause, And Bill to the Democrat idea of laws, When election day's issue had finally come. They paired off together and spent it at home. The landlady said, when Van's board bill was due, Tho he paid for but one he ate plenty for two Sometimes " Widow Cliquot " his nerves would derange, And if he saw double I'm sure 'twas not strange! But all these were tiifles, forgivable sins, For Cupid's the culptit when trouble begins. " Jamea' fiance, Nelly, had cardinal locks And a nice little fortune in government stocks; While Bill's dainty sweetheart had plenty of go, And was no more nor less' than the " Widow Cliquot." James married his heiress, but found, in dismay, That Bill still kept up his old bachelor way. One day came a letter to Bill, from a friend, Saying: "Come down to-night; for the old crowd intend To have a good time-like we used to you know And-we've got your old favorite, "Widow Cliquot." A struggle: Bill conquered; and .Veil got a note: " Detained at the office," the conquered one wrote. Next morning at daylight Van, trying to see Which one of the keyholes would yield to his key, Was surprised by a threatening whisper and low: "You brute! Tell me. quick who's that 'Widow Cliquot?'" In vain Van was eloquent, proving, in fine, That the fair "Widow Cliquot" was notaing bat wine. Behold James reduced to the meekest of states, And Bill crushed to earth by his curtain debates. To temperance lectures he nightly must go, With naught but the memory of " Widow Cliquot" Florence E. Pratt. Perhaps the readers, of the EPITAPH would like to know in what respect Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better than any other. We will tell you. When this Remedy is taken as directed, as soon as a cold has been contracted, and before it has become settled in the system, it will counteract the effect of the cold and greatly lessen its severity if not effectually cu'e the cold in two days time, and it is the only remedy that will do this. It acts in perfect harmony with nature and aids nature in relieving the lungs, opening the secretions, lique fying the mucus and causing its expul sion from the air cells of the lungs and restoring the system to a strong and healthy condition. No other remedy in the market possesses these remarkable properties. No other will cure a cold 'as quickly or leave the system in as seund a condition. 50 cent and one ud.1 bottles for sale by H. J.

MOHAVE. f. H. Campbell is in San Francisco buying hoisting machinery for the Flores mine. John Thomas is taking out some fine ore from his claim on Stockton Hill. The ore carries a high percent age of copper. David Southwick has a lot of ore here from his Music mountains mine. Some of it is rich and some of it is not so rich. Superintendent. Conard reports that work on the Little Boy mine is pro gressing finely and a connection with the new tunnel will soon he made. M. 1). Howell has purchased an one half intere-jt in the Brown mine on Stockton Hill, and he has six men at work prospecling that property. A. Fisher brought in six tons of rich gold ore from Music mountains, Fri day. Some of the ore is alive with free gold and will assay way up in the thousands. Chas. E. Sherman has commenced work on another claim near Mineral Park; which he expects will some day bring him more money than did the Queen Bee. Lynch and Larkin have three men working on the Little Man. The ore from this property is lead and carries considerable silver, and is just what they want for mixing purposes at the Arizona. Sampling Works. E. Ellibee has located a salt mine near the mouth of Wallapai wash and within a short distance of Ganns spring. Samples of salt, taken while prospecting the find are of fine qual ity, and the deposit is believed to be a large one. W. G. Campbell has obtained a bond on the Oro Plata and Mariposa mines in Todd Basin, and he will in a few weeks put up a plant to work the ore from these mines. The .work of level ing the ground for the placing of the machinery will be begun next week. Mr. Lawrence, of Ivanpah, was in Kingman this week with a lot of high grade ore from that district, which he had worked at the Kingman Sampling Works. He reports but little doing in that camp, as but few of the mines are being worked on account of the great cost of getting the ore to the railroad. M. D. Howell returned last Saturday from a trip to El Dorado Canon. While there he took a bond on some valua ble prospects, and will shortly develop them. He is well pleased with the mines in that section and particularly with the properties of the Southwest ern mining company, which are at present paying handsomely. With better shipping facilities a good camp would soon be made there. Messrs. Welsh and Porter, of the 0. K. mining company, of Kansas City, were in Kingman this week fitting up a buckboard for a trip to the Gold Basin district. The 0. K. is having the water pipe for the pfpe line hauled, two loads having already been sent out. The O. K. has purchased all the buildings, tools and machinery of tlie Monarch, or old Golden Gate company, both at the mill and mine. TI103' ex pect to have the-pipe lino laid and the mill movedfrom the river to a point eighteen miles up the Wallapai valley and in running order by the first of June. They propose to push things at a lively rate. Mohave Miner. PIMA. Mr. J. W. Haskiit, of Chicago, the general manager of the Atlas copper mines, came to this county a few days ago on business connected with his company. Mr. Haskin is highly pleased with the future prospects of the mines, and feels certain that they are destined to be amongst the largest copper producers in the United States. The copper obtained fron the ores of I these mines is soft and pliable, entirely free from arsenic, antimony and other injurious foreign substances, and is sold in New York for 14 cents per pound. The only difficulty which has as yet been met witli at the Atlas is the securing of an abundant and steady supply of water. The well has been bored to a depth of 700 feet and will supply from 8000 to 10,000 gallons of water daily. This however is not a sufficient supply for all purposes, and the work of boring still deeper will again be resumed. Mr. Quiggle . took the contract for $1,500 to bore an ! additional 200 feet, which will make the well iJOO feet deep. At this depth it is expected to obtain an abundance of water, but if such should not be the case, the company is determined to sink until it is reached and will continue boring, if need be, to the depth of 1500 feet. At Ked Kock better success has been achieved in the securing of water. Mr. John Gardiner of this city was given the contract for boring the well, which he sunk to a depth of 615 feet. At this point a large supply of water is obtained. As a test 25,000 gallons have been pumped per day and the well could still furnish more. The water in this well rises to within nine feet of the surface and as its mouth is on a small knoll it is intend ed to run a tunnel at the foot of this which will of course secure a flow of water on the surface. If they suc ceed in this the company will apply for the bounty offered by the Territory for any person securing an artesian flow of water. The mines of this district are owned by two companies, the Atlas Copper Company and the Red Eock Copper Company. Between these two com panies over $16,000 hae been spent in digging and boring for water, and it is estimated that it will take about .$2,000 more be'ore thejr wells are put in perfect order to supply a sufficient amount of water. The miners of this district have ex tracted large quantities of ore from their mines, and they have suspended operations on account of the lack of water for smelting purposes. These companies are carrying on their opera tions in "a methodical and scientific manner, and seem determined not to stop.work as long as they have ore, and this seems to occur in exhaustles3 quantities. Tucson Citizen. YUMA. The machinery purchased by James Cushenbary for the working of his placer mines has arrived here and will be shipped up to the Laguna by the next steamer. E. T. Hopkins the Eastern capitalist who has a bond on Tom Goodman's gold mine, left for Chicago by Wed nesday's express ; he will return here early next month. Mr. E. T. Hopkins has shipped from Ehpenberg by the steamer Gila several tons of ore from mines in that vicinity which will be forwarded to Chicago to be worked by the electrolytic method. The English capitalists who have been examining various mines along the Colorado ri"?cr during the past month, are much pleased with the country and will leave for London next week for the purpose of reporting to their associates. Five tons of ore from the Black Metal camp; four tons from the mines adjacent, to Arizona Landing and seven thousand pounds of ore from Doctor A. E. DeCorse group of gold mines in Mexico, will be shipped to England for the purpose of making a careful working test of- the product of the mines, on which options are held by the members of the syn dicate. In conversation with the gentlemen interested, it was learned that they were satisfied vith the mines and if the ores proved of a character easily worked, the properties would undoubtedly be purchased. Yuma Sentinel. YAVAPAI. Owners of the Hillside mine have a great many tons of rich ore ready for shipment. The property is in excel lent condition. Top rock from Paul Dillon's ledge, near the Hillside, has assayed $60 a ton, gold, besides some silver. The ledge is six feet thick. Another payment has just been made on the Crook mine. John Tiedeman, of Bradshaw dis trict, tells us that the Crowned King and Oro Bella mills are running and that the district is very prosperous. Prescott Courier.

Yesterday morning he met a friend who owns a fast trotter, and who offered the uso of it to Birch, saying that the exercise of a ride would do him good. Birch accepted the offer, and in the afternoon ordered the horse hitched to a light road wagon. He drovo slowly down Lexington avenue. The horso pranced about in a lively manner, and at times evinced a disposition to use both sides of the street In vain did Birch soothingly say, "Soh, Bossy," and "Gee haw, there." At last a train came hissing through tho tunnel, and the horse took the bit in his mouth and bolt ed. Here is where Birch concluded that ha was no Jehu, lor ho wrapped the lines about tho whip and deliberately climbed over the back of the seat. He did not stop at this, and soon hb short legs were dangling over the tailboard of the wagon. He dropped off, rolled over in tho mud several times, got up, pulled'dowD his Vest and remarked to a po liceman: "I made a hit that time, eh?" The officers then took him to task for not holding on to bis horse, but Birch shook his head and said reflectively, "There's lots of horses and bug gies in this world, most noble guardian of the law, but I'll give you a quiet tip that thero ia but one Billy Birch."

The Latest Revised Rnles and Regula tions. INSTRUCTIONS. Relating to the rules which shippers of goods to the Mexican Republic have to observe, and information relating to merchants, travelers and immi grants. I. Shippers of goods to Mexican ports must supply the invoices of the object they are sending even when such objects are destined for the pub lic service of the nation or free from import duty. Shippers must make out these invoices separately for each of their consignees. Further they must make four equal copies of each invoice, according to form; they must also take care-that the total number of packages be stated in figures and letters. IL In the consular invoices several cases, bags, barrels or packages of any description, must not he inscribed as "one" package, if packed up under one cover, else double duty will be collected. Prom this rule are expected : 1st. Heavy goods of common classes which are generally only tied up to gether, such as for instance, iron bars, metal sheets, boards for packing pur poses and othet similar articles. 2d. Petroleum and oil tins, and other liquid merchandise generally put in large tin cases; hut in these cases shippers must state accurately in their invoices, the number of tins con tained in each case. 3d. Piece goods in packages or cases. bottles, or flasks containing silimen tary substances, drugs, perfumery, etc., etc., and, generally small parcels, sacks or other objects put up in the same package. III. In the consular invoices the gross weights or net weights if there is no tare must be given separately of the various whenever their respective weigh tsdiffer by more than 10 kilo grams 22 lbs. English. , It is also prohibited to give average widths from goods that pay duty by the square metre, if they differ by five milli metres (1-5 inch). The only excep tions from these . rules are packages containing goods free of duty and that, pay only one farthing per kilo gram, in which case their weights can be thrown together. IV. It is prohibited to write be tween the lines, to make scratches, blots or rectification in the consular invoices, under' a fine of one hundred Mexican dollars for -each fault of this character discovered in these docu ments. Such faults are only tolerated in the following cases. 1st. When the rectifications have been made with written explanations at the foot of the documents and be fore taking out the consular certifi cate. 2d. When, not withstanding the correctibnSj-the several copies of the same document agree. 3d. When the interpolations, scratch ings, etc., relate to points that have influence on the question of duties. V. When shippers send in the same package goods paying different duty from each other, they must de clare in the consular invoice, besides the gross weight of the package, the net weight or legal weight (2) of each article contained in the same, in order to be able to calculate the duties re lating to each class of goods contained in the package. Should this rule not be complied with, duties will be col lected on the scale of the highest duty paying class of articles for the whole of the package. ' VI. The hippers of goods must present for certification, before the de parture of the boat or railroad train, four copies of each invoice to the Mexican Consul or Consular agent re siding in the place whence the goods are sent or in the port where the boat or train is being loaded. They will leave the copies of the invoice with the consulate and take away that one which the Mexican official will hand them with the certificate and receipt attached. The shippers have to send this copy of the consular invoice with the corresponding receipt attached and with such precautions as they may deem fit to consignee of the goods in order that the consignee shall be able to comply with the for malities prescribed' by the law. I VII. The absence of the consular invoice with the receipt attached to it by the stamps of the consulate, these being the two documents which the , consignee has to present, will cause the payment of double duty. VIII. The invoices should be writ ten in Spanish, but they will also be admitted if written in any other well known language. IX. The shippers of samples re quire no Consular certificate; it is sufficient to state in this latter whether the samples have any value or not, the kind or kinds of the articles, the gross weights of the packages, their marks and numbers and the name of the consignee, as can be seen from the form. X. The consignee of goods in Mex ican ports are responsible before the law for the faults committed by the shippers. XI. For the payment of consular fees the shippers of goods must sub mit to.the following tariff: . For the certification of a set of four copies of each invoice $4.. For single certificates delivered for any reason $2. When the certificates named in the foregoing paragraph are requested to be made out in duplicate, etc., there has to be paid extra for each copy, $1. The office hours at the Mexican Consulates being from 9 a. m. to 3 p. m. ; parties requiring them to do work up to 8 o'clock in the evening and on feast days, have to pay double charges, and after 8 o'clock in the evening treble charges. XII. Passengers landing in Mexi can ports must present their' baggage at Custom House, and if they happen to.bring with them dutiable objects, they must declare them at once in writing, with all the necessary details for 'axation. XIII. Each passenger can bring with him free of duty : 1st. His own articles of clothing, which according to the judgment of the custom house, must not be exces sive, having regard however, to the situation of the passenger. 2d. The articles he has on himself, or of his use, such as watch, chain, buttons, stick etc., and one or two fire arms with their accessories, and up to one hundred cartridges. 3d. If the passengers have a profes sion or a trade, they can introduce free of duty the instruments or tools indispensable for the exercise of their profession or trade. 4th. Adult passengers can introduced free of duty, ninety-nine cigars, forty packages of cigarettes and half a kilo (one lb.) of enuff or chewing tobacco. 5th. Artists who are members of an opera, theatre, circus, or any other company, beside the above franchises, can also introduce free of duty their costumes and scenic ornaments, on the condition, however, that such art icles form part of their baggage and correspond to the use for which they are destined. XIV. Any objects which, in the opinion of the Custom Officers have not been worn yet, will have to pay duty, if dutiable, even when the pas sengers bring them in their baggage, XV. When passengers bring furni ture or other household goods with them, they will be allowed a rebate of duty corresponding to the deprecia tion of value in consequence of their use. XVII. Passengers have nothing to pay for the examination of their bag gage; the employees of the customs must fulfill their duty with the greatest regard for the travelers and with the utmost politeness.

William Munro, who left the Com stock last summer for the South Afri can gold fields, has written a letter to a friend in Virginia, descriptive of his trip and of the country in which he is at present . working. Mr. Munro embellishes his facta with but few adjectives, and tells a tale that knocks more romance out of South Africa in a minu'e than the Eng'ish packet lines and mining shareholders can plant in a year. Following are sentences reproduced from his letter verbatim : "I have not seen a person since I left Virginia that I ever saw before. Our vessel called at Flushing, Canary Islands and at St. Helena. The latter is the most miserable place I ever saw. I didn't have time to visit Na poleon's grave. I am very much dis appointed witli Johannesburg. Why people write such glowing falsehoods about this place I cannot understand. There is a great large town built all over the country, and it is full of peo ple trying to live off their wits. The mines are all incorporated, and many of them have sold for high figures, but now they are very low, and many who have made money here are now losing it. Not one-half of the mines pay half the expense of working them. Their stock is unassessable, and when a company is out of money they issue new stock for working cap ital. Most of the rock is very low grade, and they can save but a small percentage of the gold in it. Living is very high and very poor. Wages are low. Natives do the work, shown by the whites. There is a great deal of typhoid fever. The water is not fit to drink. It looks like milk after a shower, and remains muddy two or three days. We have terrific sand storms, when we cannot see five feet ahead. A great many people die here of inflammation of the lungs, brought on by the inhalation of sand. Com ing here, I met at least 300 men re turning to the railroad. They could find no.thing to do. The ground is staked off for miles in every direction. I am working in a mine, and if my health keeps good until I make enough to take me out of here I will be happy. They have schemes to get money out of you here that I never heard of be fore.
