Land League is about to be dis-soNed.
The suit brought against the
Grand Central mine is peculiar in its
phases, and worthy of particular
notice, in the fact that it strikes
against the prosperity of Tombstone,
in endeavoring to check the opera
tions of a company that is disbursing
large sums of money, in the direction
of the various business interests of this
city and cdumy. In effect, therefore,
the suit is a matter of public interest
and it is within the province of the
local press to examino into and com
ment upon its merits. It seems that
one of the original locators of the
Grand Central mine, became involved
in trouble through theepmrnission of
a crime, and while in the hands of
the officers of the law, it is alleged,
was induced and coerced into deed
ing his share of the property to an
individual who afterwards transferred
his interest to the parties now consti
tuting the Grand Central company.
The aforesaid original locator was
s.ntenced to the penitentiary fpr his
crime, where ha is now serving i6
term of imprisonment. Now comes
his father, claiming that his son being
civilly dead, he, as next of kin
is his heir at law, and that said son's
stated interest in the Grand Central
mine forms part of his estate, his
transfer thereof being void for fraud.
It is difficult to be seen, from the
above showing, even allowing the
coercion, that tho Grand Central
Company is in anyway responsible,
it being an innocent purchaser in
equity and law. A purchaser of
mining property is bound only by
the record, unless he can be proven
& party to fraud. In fact, however,
the whole story is extremely "fishy,"
founded, as it is, upon a basis of
crime and blurred by the shadow of
the penitentiary. It looks as though
the father of the criminal is trading
upon the disgrace of the son, in a
desperate effort to force a compro
mise from the owners of one of the
richest mines in the United States;
and, certainly, he will fail in this
instance, for the Grand Central
people will resist to the last, secure
in the validity of. their title and the
honesty of their purpose. The suit
is brought by able counsel, who have,
undoubtedly, been deceived by the
criminal and his father. We have
listened to the story of , the former,
and when told to us it had no sem
blance to tho one now told. The en
tire people of Tombstone are in
terested in seeing justice done a
company which has done so much for
their welfare.
The brethren are in no way
anxious to sacrifice themselves on
the altar of patriotism by bucking
against Grant Oury in the Congres
sional race. Clark Churchill, the cool
calculator of the north, has sent out
an official notification to the faithful
that he hungers not for the name of
martyr, and consequently will not
enter the race. Gosper is in Cali
fornia, and from all accounts is luke
warm in the business, and not disin
clined to let Dibble walk off with the
nomination. How the resident mem
ber of the l&te Louisiana election
factory feels about the matter it is
difficult to tell, but Lis modesty is so
blooming and extravagant that it
would not surprise us a bit if he con
cluded to make the race. Even in
tho'event of defeat, the prestige of
leadership would be something he
would like to pack around. He is
too astute a politician not to see how
tho political weathercock is veering,
but then "you know," an unselfish
sacrifice in behalf of the party sounds
nice when repeated as a reminis
cence. The change from the Imperial to
a Republican form of Government
was never more apparent in France
than when the'Chamber of Deputies
refused to vote a war credit to the
Government. The Administration
was anxious that France should go
to Egypt shoulder to shoulder with
England, and help to punish the re
bellious Arabi Pasha. Under a Na
poleon or a Bourbon, the French
Chamber of Deputies never refused
to tax the people to carry on a war,
no matter what justice might be in the
contest. Now, however, public opin
ion has changed, and Republican
France refuses to bo a party to the
extinguishment of Nationalism in
Egypt. The French people are to.
be congratulated on their accruing
There are but two avowed Free
Traders in the Tariff Commission.
What hopo of reform can the people
expect from a body thus constituted?
It was organized on tins principle of
a drum head court martial, and will
blindly adhere to tho Republican
principle of high protective tariff.
