The Pima county cattlemen com plain that tlitir stock i being enume rated by llio Pinal county assessor and they are also paying taxes in Pima county. A young man is in jail at Bisbee for ordering a suit of $60 clothes and waiting -'J opportunity to take them without paying for them. Bisbee, Wilcox, Benson, Tcmbs tone ia the way these towns rank in the amount of money turned into the school fund each month for fines collected by the justices of the res pective precincts. No registration is required for vot ing at the constitutional convention election. The law requires, however, a voter to be a citizen of the United States and a resident of the territory sixty d&ysand of the county ten days. All despondent individuals are res pectfully invited to visit Tombstone, before the present 100 knot breeze ia OTer. By standing on top of any of the adjacent hills tbey can blow their brains out without resort to shooting irons. There is a strong feeling among many of our citizens in favor of visit ing Benson upon the arrival of Presi dent Harrison at that point. It is not Unlikely that a delegation will be there to meet him. We bear it rumored that the famous McCrackon mine near Signal has been sold to Colorado parlies for a quarter of a million dollars. The mine is well worth the money, and if it is worked on mining principals, will be one of the largest bullion producers of the west. Mohave Winer. The suit in Justice Alvords court yesterday in which D. H. McNeal sought to recover $50 claimed to be doe for repairing & wagon for Tom Havcrstock was decided in favor of the lattsr. The defendant produced a receipt signed by tue plaintiff. The latter acknowledged his signature but claimed that the word "paid" bad been written by someone else and was sot dono by him. He failed to pro duce evidence however to warrant the jury to give him a verdict.

The same is also true of the excretory functions. The bowels are often slug gish and tho pores of the skin throw off but littls waste mattar at thia sea son. The system tbejefore, requires opening up a Utile, and also purifying and reguiating, and the safest, surest and rao4t thorough tonic and altera tive that can be used for these purpo ses is Hosteller's Stomach Sitters. tJPersosi who wish to escape the rheu matic twiuges, the dyspeptic agonies, the painful disturbances of the bowels the bilious attack, and the nervous ' visittious so common at this time of year will do well to reinforce their systems with this renowned vegetable stomachic and invigorant.

A brother of Dan Shanklin arrived yesterday from Colorado and will re main here till after bis trial next month. It ia currently reported and believed that Ben Goodrich will be the leading attorney for the defease. Al though Shanklin has so money he has many monied friends who will set that be does not suffer for want of bifb.prfscd 11 tsltnt. Tub sentiment at Bisbee is said to be strongly against statehood. Tub chances are that Col. Win. Herring, George W, Cheyney and Major Montandon will be the nomi nees of the republican convention for delegates. The Uaxctto ays that a large party of farmers left Mew Hampshire last Tuesday for Arizona and New Mexico. The owners of the Maxwell grant have had several agents in New Hamp shire, Massachusetts and Vermont, the pest winter, working these stales for home seekersand fifteen hundred are preparing to come, while quite a number prefer settling in Arizona. A few, and a very few persons of the opposite political faith, oppose Mark Smith for delegate to the con stitutional convention on the ground that it is showering too many honors upon him. Tho Pbospectos fails to call to memory an instance of where the public ever suffered from the lowering of honors'upon a worthy and capable public servant. II the constitutional convention is not to be a farce, if it is to be a serious attempt to gain a foothold in the nnion of states, such silly talk should not be countenanced. Tho failure to send our delegate to congress to the conven tion to frame a constitution would be simple suicide. He is the one to whom will be consigned the duty of asking our admittance. A practical knowledge of the contents of our petition would be an essential advantage that could not be otherwise gained. It is not Mark Smith whom the people are asked to send as one of our delegates to the convention, but it is the repre sentative of the Territory of Arizona at the national capital. If the name of our congressman were General Wilson or George Cheyney, it would be no less the duty of the people to ask them to take part in framing our ship of state. H Weatberspeos hss the contract for building the Catholic church at Bisbee. The stipulations call for its completion within forty days. George Walker was taken to Bisbee tc-dy by Deputy Bowman. District Attorney English accompanied him and will prosecute the case before Justice Perrin. The Pima Republicans will hold thier primaries on the 25th and their convention two days later. Judge Maxwell, Judge Wright and B. K, Richardson are probable dele gates. Howard Herring, Tom Sorin, John Smith and Jim Hart returned fion the Chiricahua mountains this afternoon. They have been absent for a fortnight on busiucss con nected with the suit of the U. S. vs Boss. A Mexican wood chopper near South Pass, in the Dragoon mountains claims to have seen five Apaches last Saturday, going toward the Sulphur Spring valley. One was on horseback and the balance were afoot. He ran to his cabin and secured bis riSe but the Indims, who were travelling fast, did not molest him. Another wood chopper claims to have seen two more going the .same way. Plana Toner va Juk or All Trades There are plenty of clever itiner ants throughout the west who eke out an existence by performing odd jobs from house to house replating silver ware, mending clocks, door bells, and eoaie even profess a proficiency in ton ing pianos. These bunglers sometimes succeed in passing themselves off for skilled professional tuners and the deception is not learned until tbey have disappeared only to repeat the trick in other places. Florence has not been exempt from their presence but the owners of pianos ars learning a lesson they will likely remember and they will hereafter wait the stated visits of A.Eedeuillf'who It a perma nent resident of Arizona and the pos sessor of credentials that fully attest his skill and ability.
