The FjKosrCTOR is in receipt of re

wire that a strong and probably suc

tho county. Many rumors are cur
rent concerning the standing of Co
chise deiegates upon this important
question. It was reported that Speaker
Clark was in favor of it. The Teos
rtCToa, on behalf of the Speaker,
wishes to deny this accusation. He is
not only opposed to tbe thieving
scheme, but will work nights and Sun
days to defeat the measure. There is
a strong delegation at work at the
capital, headed by Norton, of Wilcox.
The opinion of many citizens of
Tombstone has been asked regarding
the scheme and all are opposed to the
division unless Pima gives up to Co

From the Ttvo Republics we learn
that a movement is on foot, to make
some importantchangpsin tho coinage
of the Republic, Gen. Pacheco minis
ter of public works having submitted
the following suggestions to congress.
In order to improve tbe current silver
dollar the words "tin peso" are to take
the place of "ocho reales." Instead of
indicating the fineness in "grammes,"
it will be expressed by a simple deci
mal number. To do so, a slight
change will be made in the fineness,
which will be 0.903 inslead of 0.9277.
The present design will be belter exe
cuted and rendered more artistic. As
regards small currency, it is proposed
to coin new piece 20 cents. The
design on the twenty, ten and five
cents pieces will be similar to that ou
the dollar. The coinage of fifty-cent
and twenty-five cent pieces is to be
discontinued as tbey o&ot harmonize
with the decimal system. In the in
terest of silver no smaller gold piece
than ? 5 is to be coined. Tne design
of the gold coin is to be improved and
altered. On the observe it will re
semble the silver coin, but on the re
verse will be the bust of Hidalgo, in
rdar that no one may mistake a gold
coin for a silver one. Copper coins
will bear on the obverse the national
arms, as on the silver dollar. The exe
cutive is to bo empowered to use
bronze instead of pure copper, as it
wears belter and is not likely to be
melted down for use in tbe arts.
