ToinliHlono Troubles
A contributor to the Citizen from
Tombstone, under tho above caption,
publishes an article in that paper on
the 22d instant and signs himself
"Union." The article contains so
many facts that we regret having to
offer a correction. Union berates
tho county officials, and the produ
cing mines beforo the public as a set
of swindlers declares that tho mines
are living off tho camp, and that not
a single mine is assessed anywhere
near its value, whilo private property
is assessed beyond its value. He
also says tho Democratic officials
have now the chief city of tho county
in their control; etc. Then ho goes
on to enumerate the frauds of said
officials. The frauds are all right;
but, my dear friend Union, let me
correct you. In tho'first placo, four
fifths of tho producing mines in Co--ohise
county are owned and con
trolled by Republicans, and it was
through the efforts of General Raw
lins and other Republicans in the
Legislature that the tax was taken
off the bullion of tho Territory. We
now believe it was a wise act, though
at the time it was done we opposed
it. The EriTArn can now with pro
priety urge capitalists to come here
and invest but if thoro was
a heavy bullion tax the Epi
taph would have to be silent.
Correction second This county
is not .now, nor never has been in
tho hands of tho Democrats. The
otUcials who have control in this
county, were appointed by a Repub
lican executive and with two excep
tions thoy were Republicans. They
were never substantial Democrats
are not now Democrats, and never
will bo Democrats unless the Repub
licans shall kick them out of their
synagogue. Now friend Union, let
mo suggest to you to go slow.
Whilo tho majority of our county
officials have been, and aro now Re
publicans, and while it is true that
they have been guilty of nearly all
the bad things thoy accuse them of,
I do not blame the Republicans of
Cochise county, or hold them respon
sible for their acts. When the poo
nle of this county shall bo permitted
to chose their own officials I have no
doubt we will have u good, honest
government, be they Democrats or
In a word, friend Union, you were
a little too fast in trying to build up
a little cheap popularity by trying to
saddle all the rascality of the county,
on Democrats.
Let us bo truthful, honest and in
dependent. B. L. Peel.
.11 Cnrr i:tilulnw.
Mr. I.arkin W. Cnrr, who ariived in
town yesterday to attend the Democratic
county convention, was asked by the Epi
taph for an explanation of the grand juiy
report, concerning the offices of the Coun
ty Kecorder and Clerk of the District
Court. .Mr. Carr was willing to gho all
needed information concerning ilio matter
and denied the allegation that he inten
tionally suppressed it. ile said that tho
report was written on two and a half pages
of small note paper, whilo the other re
ports weio ou fools cap or lnrge sheets.
That ho habitually placed tho reports of
committees in his pocket, and when pre
senting them to tho court, accidentally lelt
tho small sheet remain in hi.s pocket, lie
sent a copy of the report to town, and
thinks the original cannot ho tiled with
the clerk as it is the province of the court
to personally receive all grand jury reports.
Geo. Spangenbcrg got a copy on Wight's
order. fho report condemns'Scamans for
exacting deposits from litigants. A mo
tion was made in tho grand jury room
that Kcamuns be indicted but was voted
down. Mr. Carr claims that Wright was
actuated by spite against Scamans. Tho
report as handed in was read to the grand
jury and adopted. After the report was
read, Mr. Carr asked tho grand jurors if
they had any alterations to make, and they
answered no. Mr. Wight then moved
that tho report as read bo adopted, and
handed in to tho court ns their report, -Mr.
Carr said that when he sot to lienson, and
discovered tho report among his papers, ho
called tho attention of Mr. Kitteiege to it
and said that ho expected there would lie a
fuss kicked up about it.
Meeting- of Hie Democratic
Delegates Yesterday.
Delegates to the Territorial
Convention Chosen, and
County Committee
The Democratic County Convention
met at ScheiU'elin Hall at 2 o'clock yester
day afternoon. The convention was called
to order by Judge Grey, member or the
Territorial Committee, and General V. K.
Wardwell nominated Judge Berry lor
temporary Chairman. Judge Berry, on
taking tho chair, said he felt flattered, for
such an indication of conlidenco on the
part of the Democracy of Cochise county.
He said the season was not far cnoush ad
vanced for political discussion, and hu
would, tncrelore, cut that matter short.
Ho admonished the convention to use
good judgment in the selection of Dele
gates to the Territorial Convention, and
also In the appointmcut of a County Com
mittee. Tho latter tody, ho said, should
bo representative of tho county, each sec
tion being evenly and judiciously repre
sented. Tho Chairman then called for tho ap
pointment of a temporary Secretary and
Samuel Purely was unanimously chosen.
On motion of Mr. Moriarty, the Chair
appointed a committco of live on creden
tials, consisting of Messrs. Wardwell,
Tevis, Brittain, Bulbrd and Grey.
On motion, the following committee on
organization and order of business was
appointed by tho Chair: Messrs. Fall,
Cair, Lurty, Midler and Baron.
On motion, the convention took a recess
for thirty minutes, to enable the commit
tees to retire and deliberate.
At tho expiration of tho time named, the
convention was again called to order, and
Judge Brittain ot Bisbcc, secretary of the
committee on credentials, read tho names

On motion of a delegate, the name of
David Humphrey, as delegate from Nep
tune Wells, was added, he having pro
duced Rulliclent evidence of being elected,
though his credentials wore mislaid.
On motion, the report of the committee
was adopted.
The report of the Committee on Organi
zation and Order of Business was then
read by Mr. L. W- Carr, Secretary of the
Committee. The report retained Judge
Berry, permanent chairman, and named
Judge J. S. Brittain, of.Bisbee, Secretary,
and John O'Neill, Sorgcant-at-Aruis ; and
on order of business: First, appointment
of delegates to the Territorial Convention;
second, the election of a County Central
Committee. The repoit .was amended
so us to read, tho appointment of a Cen
tral Committee, consisting of fifteen mem
befs, live of whom shall be appointed from
the city of Tombstone and ten from the
test oi'tlio county.
A motion was'made, that the convention
vote vivc voce, which, alter a short discus
sion, was adopted.
Judge Grey then moved that a commit
tee of ten bo appointed to present eight
names to bo voted for as Delegates to tlio
Territorial Convention; also the names of
liftcen to scivo as members of the County
Central Committee.
This pioposition brought ou consider
able discussion.
Mr. Purdy said ho opposed that mode of
choosing delegates. The convention should
not delegate its own proper functions to a
committee. Perhaps every man in the
conenthm had a lirst, second, third or
may bo tenth choice, and lie should bo given
a chance to vote for his favontc. It was
not Democratic to take that right from the
direct representatives of tho people.
Mr. Joyce was not in favor of Ur
chamber methods, and said tho election of
Delegates should be open and above board.
General Wardwell thought the appoint
ment of a committee would be the best
plan, and advocated the motion.
Mr. Purdy again took the floor in deci
ded opposition to the motion, and the ap
plause ihut followed his remarks was con.
vlncingthat the convention was in sympa
thy with his position.
Judge Grey then withdrew his motion
and the Chair declared nominations for
Delegates to the Territorial Convention
in order.
Capt. James II. Tevis, of Bowie Station,
in a neat speech, nominated Hon. Samuel
Purdy, reciting his services to the Demo
cratic paily, and eminent qualification for
tho position.
The motion was seconded almost simul
taneously by every delegate In tho hall
The following gentlemen were also
nominated: Benj. Goodrich, Mark II.
Smith, It. C. Merrill, W. K. Wardwell, J.
M. Murphy, Edward McGowan, J. II.
Tevis, W. Grey, J. S. Johnson, 1'. T. Colby,
Judge Luity, M. C. Joyce.
At this point a motion was made that no
person be chosen a delegate who will not
come before the convention and pledge
himself to attend in person.
Sir. Purdy, being tho fir-. placed in
nomination, said hn was very "anWul for
,, , .. . " i .
the honor the convention proposed to con-
feronhim. IIo said it was a genuine ;sur -
prise, as he nan not sougnt

sided longer in their midst should bo
chosen. lie said, however, that if the con
vention thought fit to elect him that ho
would most assuredly attend and vote for
the nomination of Hon. Granville II.
Onry for Delegate to Congress.
Mr. Ben Goodiich expressed his deter
mination fo go if elected. Mr M. II.

vention foi the honorscoufiiiied, ,, und
promised 10 auenu iw

vote for liim beforo "shuflling oil the mor.

Convention it elected a delegate. J. II.
Tevis promised to attend the Convention if
elected and help nominate Oury. P. T.
Colby thanked the Convention, but de
clined to attend. J. S. Johnson also de
clined. Mr. Joyce and Judgo Lurty also
declined, leaving an even eight in the Held
who were elected by acclamation.
Tho convention then went into the elec
tion of a County Central Committee, and
on motion, the county and city delegates
weio allowed to withdraw and choose
their men. A recess of fifteen minutes was
taken for that purpose. Attho expira
tion of that time, the convention reassem
bled, and Mr. Purdy, in behalf of the city
delegates, presented the names of John
Smylhe, F. II. Boarman, J. J. McClellan,
U. A. juonarty ami n. narou. rue se

With characteristic enterprise, has rc-eiec-ted
his magnificent building on the corner
of Fifth and Allen streets. This building,
now on the eve of completion, is 30x120
feet. Eighty feet of the building, fronting
on Allen stieet, will be occupied by Wchr
fritz himself as a beer hall and gambling
saloon. It will be elegantly fitted up and
furnished; a fountain erected in the ccntro
where cool water will constantly ploy and
sportive goldfish gambol. The next com.
partment, on Fifth street, at present occu
pied by Wehrfntz's saloon, will be used by
Frank Beluda as a barber shop, and tne
lemaiuder of the building on Fifth street
will be occupied by the Kockaway restau
rant. The building will be completely
finished by the Fourth of July, and will
cost $8,500.
Building is next to Wchrfriiz's, and is now
nearly completed. This building is 30x70
and will be used by Mr. Lenoir as a furni
ture store. This building will cost $2500.
The next building is owned by Mr.
Sampson, and will be occupied by Myers,
the tailor, and Duval, the assayer. This
building is 27x30 feet aud will be erectfd
at a cost of .f 3000.
Building is next in line and is rapid
ly approacing completion. This will be
a two story building, and the ground lloor
has already been secured by Fitzhcury &
Mansfield, the enterprising grocers. The
upper story will probably be occupied by
tne Tombstone Club. This building is 22
xOO and will probably cost 3,000. Fitz
henry & Mansfield have already swung
out their sign lo inform the public of their
intended removal. Going along
the Allianibra saloon building, owned by
Nichols & Malgreu is found hugging
Whcrfiilz's building on the corner. "This
building was first staitcd and first com
pleted. It is now icady for the furniture,
being ceiled, painted and prepaied iu flue
style. It will bo occupied and opened on
the first of July. It is elegantly lumished,
is 30x80 fett and cost not less than 5,000.
Further on Ayimers building 30x80 is on
the high road to completion. This build

Campbell is Hatch. These gentlemen ex
pect to open up their saloon about the fif
teenth. Mr. Campbell has just returned
irom San Francisco, wheic he purchased a
couple of billiard tables and a complete
stock of fixtures. It is expected that tins
will be one of the finest saloons in the
Territory. Robert Gray bought thirty
three feet from Bilicke by the side of tho
budding and work was commenced ou a
building yesterday. All the above
work was done by Bruce is Jones,
well known contractors und tho
promptitude and workmanlike manner
in which tho work was peribimed ie
dounds to their credit.
Schmeding's building is also iu a fair
way ot being completed in n few days.
McCoy's building is also nearly finished
and will be a very tasteful structure. It is
divided into two compartments, one of
which will be occupied by the Baroii3 as a
barber shop, and tho other by a jeweler.
This buildnig is 30xG0 aud will com 3500.
A. Hill is the contractor.
Bilicke has not, as yet, broke ground fur
his hotel, though it is expected ho will
soon, though tears are entertained that a
largo building of that kind could not be
finished before the advent of the rainy sea
son. Crossing to the south side of Allen street
we find Mr. Comstock's building, formerly
Grand Hotel, almost ready for occupancy.
The principal compaittnent here will be
occupied by L. F. IMackburn as a suioon.
There will be a bar room 42 feet iu depth,
with four card rooms of 12 feet square
each, in the i ear. Mr. Blackburn will de

finest Miloons in town in the near future.
The other apartment lying parallel with
Blackburn's will be used as a restaurant
by Jakcy. The basement will be used by
Alderson As G rattan for their "Fountain"
saloon and lunch room. Tho probable
cost of this building will be in the neigh
borhood of i?10,000. Tho work has been

llrs-.UL, Juno 24, 1882.
Editor Epitaph: I enclose to you u
copy oi me proceedings 01 the miners
meeting for Cochise district, held here last
evening. The meeting was largely attend
ed and entirely harmonious, and the pro
ceedings show tho warmest appreciation
of the district, as to the benefits to be de
rived from a representation to DeuTer.
Another meeting, us will be seen, is an-
pointed, lo supply any omissions, or lo
meet any emergencies in action, necessary
to n complete representation.
Tho camp is having continual accretions
in the way of citszenship and business eu
Icruriscs. Mr. Sidon, but recently of Chttrlestowu,
is now opening out here with a full
stock of general merchandise, and
Messrs. Julian and Tinkuni aro just
completing the erection of a hand
some adobe houe in which they will
veiy soon open n saloon, giving to the
camp the third saloon. Wc have one res
taurant, owned by Mr. Clifford, and soon
to have another. Mr. It. E. Humphrey
being the moving spirit.
The Pcabody mine h a continually
growing success. Upraises are being
driven on each, the we&t and cast of tho
main shaft, and a winr.e is being sunk
from the tunnel to the east, and all arc dis
covering large bodies of ore, and of very
rich grade. The tunnel driving east is
also showing continually a magnificent
breast of ore. Ere iong this mine will be
second to none in its assured wealth.
Other valuable properties arc to bo devel
oped here soon and vigorously, which will
give added vigor to the camp's growth.
The smelter has been running sonic
twelve days, and already five carloads of
bullion have been shipped, with another
shipping, to eastern markets.
Observer, from here, I see, has a very
neat article in a recent issue of your paper,
wherein he pays Mr. James Hughes a
handsome and well-merited compliment,
and one, as applicable to their varied sta
tions, which might be appropriately paid
to all, including Mr. Wall, the superinten
dent, the foreman, and other operators of
the Russell Miniug Co.
In tlie way of visitors, wc now have
with us Me.-Ms. T. R. Sarin, Steigman,
Park and Hawthorn, of Tombstone, and
dnring'thc early pat t of the week. General
J. F. Harrison, of El Paso, Texas, spent a
day or two here, and we hope to receive n
a visit Irom the editor ot the j-.i'itapk at
no distant day. Very truly, II. T.
A E'crtmrnt Inquiry.
Tomustone, June 20th, 1882.
Etiior Epitaph: San Fianeisco has
tor years put a clause in its contracts for
public woik that nothing should bo pur
chased that emanated from Chinese em
ployment. Thjs is principally a Deuio
ciatic (loctilnc; and my object iu writing
is to ask why Democratic officials allow
brick lor our county buildings to lie made
by Chinese, but such is the case. Surely
there are enough white men who would
gladly accept such employment, and I
need only point to the numerous while
men that the water company are employ
ing on the streets daily lo prove the fact.
I, with many old residents of this county,
think it a disgrace that our county build
ings should have the least taint of tho
Chinese iu their construction. California
is endeavoring by her leagues of deliver
unco to drive them away, and from the
encouragement they are receiving in
Tombstone it is more than probable many
will come this way and force many of us
who wcro compelled to leave that country
by their competition to again seek pastures
new. Sweat oe the Brow.

Larkh W. Carr, foreman of the
late era-. ry, makes the following
stateinc . e public for the infor
mation ' blic. Mr. Carr says
that w , ' concluded his labors
here In ' its certificate with a Mr.
McNeill, with instructions to draw '
the warrant and forward it to him.
When the Board of Supervisors al
lowed the bill, Mr. McNeill called on
the Chairman of the Board and pre
sented Mr. Carr's certificate. Mr.
McNeill failed to get the warrant,
and a few days afterwards Mr. Carr
received the following letter from and
Clerk of tho Board, which he offers
for publication, with othors that fol
lowed: Tomustoxk, Juno 18, 1882.
L. V. Caur, Benson Dear Sir:
rmed that you do not
best advE
the warrant for the whole an
drawn for tho person who purchased
them. To deduct your warrant now
and draw another for you would
complicate matters very much; and
as 85 cents is more than the banks
will give 1 trust you will accept the
money atid not insist upon the war
rant. Respectfully, your obedient
servant, Richard Rule.
Mr. Carr wrote to the clerk, re
questing him to forward the warrant,
and received the following:
Tombstone, A. T., Juno 23d, 1882.
L. W. Carr. Benson. Yours of the
19th received. I am informed that
the entire report of the Grand Jury
of which yon were foreman, has not
yet been placed on file, and conse
quently your certificate has not been
passed on yet by the Board, which
have adjourned until July 3d. When
pronounced correct a warrant for the
amount will await your order.
Respectfully, Your Ob't. Servant,
Richard Rule.
In reply to the last, Mr. Carr, wrote
as follows:
Benson, Juno 22, 1882.
Richard Rule, Esq., Tombstone,
A. T. Dear Sir: Your note of this
date, with enclosures, read and noted.
I understand from your note that my
claim for services on tho Grand Jury
was not allowed by the Supervisors.
Now, this is certainly a very singular
proceeding. The published report
of tho Supervisors show that my
account was allowed, and I was no
tified through tho newspaper that the
money was at Mr. Joyce's saloon for
me. You also wrote tne that it had
been allowed, and wished me to
accept 650.10 for it, which I refused
to do. Now, when I make a demand
for the warrant, I am informed that I
can not get it until I file tho full re
port of the Grand Jury. If you cart
enaircdTn cMMIHEHtiflHL r
inform me what power the HonorabIe -Board
of Supervisors have over my
actions as a Grand Juror, or what
business it is of theirs (officially)
what sort of a report I, as foremrn of
the Grand Jury, filed, I shall be un
der many obligations. I did fail to
file or hand into the court a commit
tee report, and I shall hand it to the
court at the proper time, but certain
ly shall take no advice as to my ac
tions in the matter from any one. I
think I know my duty in the matter,
fully as well as some of my would-be
advisers. As the supervisors have
allowed my account I must ask you
to issue the warrant. I do not pro
pose to be bull-dozed by the super
visors or any ono else in tho matter.
Respectfully your Ob't. Serv't.
Larkin W. Carr.
At this point tho matter rests. It
is a. very pretty quarrel as it stands,
the end of which, doubtless, has not
been heard.
