Tho Epitaph yesterday morning con tained u caul from William llenscn, In which he called attention to sonic glaring misstatements madu by an evening eon temporary. It was with some reluctance that the card was admitted to our columns, as it proved conclusively that our content. porary had been practicing on the credul ity of its readers, hut from a sense of public duty tho publication of the card was llnally allow-cd- Rut with a sublime audacity seldom equaled tliis mendacious contemporary publishes another suppositious intciview with Mr. Ilcnseu, in which that gentleman Ismadoto deny the authenticity of the card which appeared over his own signa ture, and tho original copy of which is i now in this ofllce. Inasmuch as Mr. Hen- Ben is a gentleman of well-known honesty and unquestionable veracily, an Epitaph reporter was last night detailed to hunt nun up ami ascertain if he could explain tho astounding assertions attributed to him by tho evening contemporary. Fortunate )y for tho interests of truth, Mr. lieusen was found just as he was on tho eve of de parturo for his homo near Crittenden. He was asked If ho had Ken tho Republican, and answeied that ho had not. Tho re porter produced a copy or that sheet and called his attention to tho article, which is certainly tho most UNllLUSHINa CANAKU ever perpetrated on this community. Mr. Hcnsen read it carefully over, and when ho had fully digested and begau to apprc clato tho position in which it placed him, his rago at the infamous author knew no bounds. Ed Rowland and W. II. Hoard man, botlr of whom arc well-known In Tombstone, two neighbors of Mr. llenscn, who came up with him from tho Darbaco mari Thursday, were with him, and it was only through their Intercession that ho was prevented from seeking out and admin isteiing well merited chastisement to tho j. monumental prevaricator of tho Republi can. After Mr. llenscn had recovered from his excitement, ho stated that it was tho intention of himself and friends to leave for Crittenden Inst night', but under the circumstances they would remain over until this morning. Tho -appended cards will explain themselves, and at the same time convince the public tint for adaman lino effrontery and variegated lying the Republican reporter is the boss. Thofol lowing are THK cahds: Editoii Fpitaph Dear .Sir: The Re. publican of this cveniuc contains nn nrti. clo that for falsehood and misrepresenta tion is absolutely startling. Tho article asserts that I deuied the authorship of my card in tho Epitaph, and then follows what purnorts to bo affidavit signed by myself in (he presence of Charles D. Reppy, a notary public. I did not deny that I wroto tho Epitaph card, nor did I make any affidavit to that effect before Mr Reppy or anybody else. In fact 1 have not the honor of Mr. Rcppy's acquaint mice. In order to place myself right with tho Epitaph and the public, I will briclly relate what did transpire yesterday. In the morning Messrs. Rowland, Roardman and myself rode down to Charleston, re turning about 11 o'clock a. m. Wo wero standing on Allen ttrect shortly after that hour when the reporter or the Republican approached. Considering the willful man ner in which ho had lied about mo tho I day before, I acknowledge that I was somewhat surprised at his " check" in ad dressing mc. IIo did not appear in tho least abashed when I intimated to him that our acquaintance was perhaps already as intimate as would bo mutually arcca. ble; but on tho contiary he laughcif with that peculiar Hibernian gusto which is all his own, and said that ho hail been lookln for me to apologize for some 'little errors' which had; crept into ids report the pre vious evening. To bo brief, Mr. Editor, my resentment soon yielded to tho solt blarney and manifold blandishments of the repoitcr, who invited myself and Iriends to accompany him to tho Republi can office. This wo did, and while there hc subject was discussed in a pleasant and ,ocoso manner, the reporter claiming that tlio misstatements in his article had been made to get " a joko" on the Epitaph, and with no thought of doing me an injustice, there was no proposition made for me to deny anything or to make affidavit to nny. thine; but while wo were talking I iuci. dentally stated that myself and friends left for Crittenden at 1 o'clock ill the afternoon, which wc then intended to do, but wero unavoidably, detained. Since leaving the Republican office, I have not seen the reporter, nor anybody else connected with that sheet. Now, Mr. Editor, the inter, view published in last evening's Republi can was made out of whole cloth, and the affidavit was simply a forgery so far as the undersigned is concerned. Respectfully, m . . William Hensen. Tombstone, October 21. Editoii Epitaph Dear Sir: We, the undersigned, have read the foregoing state ment of William llenscn. To our per-s-mal knowledge It is true solar as con cerns what occurred between Mr. Hcnsen and the reporter on Allen street and at the Republican office. After leaving that office wc were with Mr. Hcnsen uninterruptedly during tho remainder of tho day, anil know that ho did not again havo cominuu ication with anybody connected with that paper, consequently he could not havo made tho statement or affidavit attributed toblm. E. II. Rowland, , , , W.H.ISOAP.DMAN Tombstone, Octobr 21. THE I'UllLIC CAN NOW ESTIMATE just how much reliance can be placed on tho statements or the delectable Fifth street luminary and the versatile genius who dishes up tho colossal fabrications for its readers. It may not be amis3 to stato In this connection that C. D. Reppy, who figures as a notary in ihe affidavit, is also an employe of the Republican. The fact of the whole business is that the Republi can reporter, thinking Mr. ilenscn had left town, drew on his own inner conscious ness ior his alleged "interview "and the affidavit n well. If the young man keeps his lick up, ho may in tho course of time hope to rival Ell Perkins or some of the other monumental liars of the century. As for tho Epitaph, It will in tho future as in tho past confine itself strictly to factf. in tho firm belief that even In journalism 1 honesty is the best policy.1"' ALONG Til 13 LINES.

If there be ore below that level, ami all good judges and mining men 'who have examined the lower levels of the Grand Central and Contention agree that the indications are most Tavorr ble, then the Allure will indeed be assured, and the prosperity or tho county and the entire Territory increase a hundredfold.

The directors of the Tucson Smelting and Mining company are Samuel Hughes president; Dr. Handy, vice-president, and W. A. Scott secretary and treasurer. Articles of incorporation of tho Cababi Mining Company or Arizona have been filed in Tucson. The capital stock or said company is if 1,000,000, divided into 200, 000 shares at a par value or $3 each. The business commenced with a capital of $100,000 paid in. The incorporators arc W. W. Dreyfus, Samuel Steinburger, D. J. Wood, F. II. Treat and Jehn Higelow, all of Philadelphia. Copper Queen Is second in extent only to the Calumet and llccla mines of Lake Superior, although its productive history dates back only two years to the 20th of August, 18S0. It is situated iu the eastern slope of Mule PasSjinthoMulemounUim, at an elevation from the creek bottom of about one hundred feet. It is distant from Tombstone, thirty miles by trail and forty five miles by stage road. The copper produced from Agust -20, 18S0, to Juno 17, 1882, was 4,000 tons; total of ore smelted, 29,251 tons. For the fiscal year ending April 1, 1882, the value of the copper pro duced and forwarded to New York was $1,020,850.72. The cost of mininer, smelt ing, refining and forwarding to New York aggregates $532,733.33, leaving the net earnings for the year $488,120.29. The ore woikcd during the year averaged 10 1-5 per cent, and the product was 9G' flue. The ore developed Is sufficient to keep the two smelters now miming in operation for three years at their full capacity. Wa are indebted to the Citizen for the following: "Whatever may be said or the mines in the southern section of So norn there can be no question as to the value of those in the northern portion, more especially those in and bordering on the Sombrctillo range, many of which arcl payiijgpiopeiucs nomine grass roots down and develop increased values with In creased depth. Considerable bullion Is shipped and more promised as soon as the works now iu process of construction are completed aud put in running order. Two companies, one known as the Boston & Sonora and the other as the Silver Hill Mining company, have under way a ten stamp mill soon to be completed. Two mills, owned by the Sombrctillo and Co lumbia cpmpanics, are in constant opera tion and making creditable returns. A twenly-ton smelter is being erected at the famous old Plomosa mine owned by a company of that name. Since passing in to their hands many of the old works have been cleaned out and new bodies of ore, large and rich, have been uncovered. An estimate made by a gentleman fully capable of making it, places the value of ore on tho dumps aud in sight at fully half a million dollars. A similar estimate has been placed on the Mina Grande camp. Roth arc said to be controlled by the same company and are worked under the superintendency of Caplaiu E. G. Bar ker, a very capable and energetic man. About five hundred men are employed in the different Sombrctillo camps, about one-third of whom are Americans, the bal ance being natives of tho country. Al together a very satisfactory showing lias been made with a fair promise of a still more prosperous future. LOCAL NOTES.

Hun. ;. II. Oury's lleeeuliou :U (lie Copper Camp Ucneral J'olllloal I'nintH. Special Oo l res pondenco of t io Epttnph.l Bisuee, Oct. 1G. On 'Wednesday even ing las', about 5 o'clock, Hon. Granville Oury, accompanied by Copt. Mike Gray, arrived in town. The mail came in but a short time before and was not yet distribu ted when our delegate arrived. The mail contained a letter, addressed to J. S. Brit tain, a member of tho central committee, advising him of the intended visit and re questing him to make the ncconsary ar rangements. Of course the necess ary ar rangements were made, but it was very brief notice, and it is mildly suggested to the county committee that if aivico of the visit of Mr. Oury had been received here a day or two before his arrival, it would have been more satisfactory. Mr. Oury has many friends in this vicinity, and frequent inquiry has been made as to when he would come to sec us, and a good deal of concern was manifested to hear him. It is to be regretted, however, that a number of persons were deprived of the latter pleasure from the fact that they did not know he was to be here till he had come and gone, for it was only two hours aud a half from the time of his ni rival until lie took the stand to address the pco pie. Notwithstanding ihe very brief no. lice there was a LA11C1E AND ENTHUSIASTIC ASSEMBLAGE to greet him upon his appearance. The meeting was called to order by J. S. Briitain, who introduced Mr. Oury as the present and future delegate to Congress. Mr. Oury said ho had never before been in Bisbeo since it had been called Bisbee, but was familiar with the region and had traversed t long before it had hecome famous as the great copper camp. He ex pressed his pleasure at meeting many old friends here, as indeed everywhere else in the territory. He then addressed himself to the general issues. He had been to Congress two years and now he had come to tell the people what he had been doing. The Republicans said ho had done noth ing and the burden of their song was that he could do nothing because he was a Democrat and the administration Republi can. This was the sole argument offered by the Republicans, that, in order to ob tain any recognition of the interests of the tcrritoiy at Washington, it was necessary to send a man as a delegate who is in bar mouy with the administration. Mr. Oury did not say, sis lie might hayc done, that the Republican nominee for Congress, DeForrest Porrcr, Republican though he be, would bu infinitely more out of bar mony w itli the present administration than almost any Democrat. The speaker, how ever, proceeded to show iu CLEAIl AND COGENT TEHMS the puerility of such an argument, if such twaddle can lie dignified by such a name. Mr. Oury de clared that it was exceedingly disagreeable for him to speak of this matter at all, and he should have declined all personal com parisons if he had not felt' compelled to speak of these matters by Judge Porter's remaiks all over the territory. It had been said here but a few nights ago, in at tempted explanation of Porter's removal fiom the Supreme, bench ot the tciritory, that he had resigned his place beeau-e the department would not grant him twelve days leave of absence to attend to private business. The facts were these: Acorn mission was sent out to the territory by the department to Investigate certain grave charges against Judge Porter in his judi cial capacity. When Juigti Porter be came aware what was up he telegraphed to Washington for leave of absence for twenty da-s that he might go on to Wash ingfou and presumably "fix things." His application was rejected. He then, in de fiance of the law, abandoned his post with out leave, and hastened on to Washington. There in person lie renewed his application, aud with franlio vehemence; begged for time. lie was told to go back to his quar ters and stand an investigation on the se rious charges then resting AOAINST HIS JUDICIAL CHAliACTEl!. This he declined lo do, and the depart ment immediately intimated that his resig nation of the associate justiceship of the supreme court of Arizona would be ac cepted. Whereupon, rather than meet these charges, he resigned. So much for the resignation business. If there is any lustre about it, Mr. Porter is welcome to it all. Mr. Oury was in Washington at tho time, perfectly familiar with the whole matter, he knows whereof he speaks and no one will question his yeracity or his accuracy. Having disposed or Mr. Porter, the speaker briefly reviewed his own course during the time that lie has represented the Territory at Washington, ixplaining some of the difficulties that a territorial delegate has to contend with, showing also that he had been exceptionally industrious and attentive to ihe interests of the terri tory. Mr. Oury spoke for about three quarters ol au hour in a ready and Uncut manner. His style is ENTIRELY AltOU.MENTATIVE. He makes no pretense to forensic attain ments, but when he rises to spenl: ho im presses his hcareis that he has something to say, and when ho ceases he leaves the impression that he has said something, said it well, and there is nothing more to be said on the subject, lie lias a way of going straight to his object, aud going to the'bottom of it, that is in entire keeping with his unaffected appearance and de meanor; and the sincerity, simplicity and solidity of his character, at once com manding respect and enlisting confidence. At the close of his remarks he was greeted with three rousing cheers, and the chair man adjourned the meeting. At present writing everything indicates that Bisbee will sustain her claim as the MANNER DEMOC'lt.VTIC PItECIXCT by polling more democratic votes than any oilier precinct of equal population in the county. Mr. Carr, while here, made a good impression, and if he is defeated, it will not be because he lacks the confidence or esteem of his party. By tho way wc want to know where Tevis and Moriarity are. Are they going to give us the go-by ? Hadn't they better get over here and 'how' a little? Nvwi,r.. How lie Wot It In the I'.ai: Everybody who has lived on the western frontier knows the genial, humorous Sam Barrow. Sam is always full of business lio never gets lull of anything else it makes no difference to him when he hap. pens to fall below low water marK what he goes at, so long as he makes both ends meet in a fair, honorable way. In the par lance of the street, he is a " rustler.'' He gets up early and rustles for the foolish worm that seeks the a. m. dew, until very late in the day. If he don't catch him the first cast ho changes his bait, and keeps on changing until he gets a bite, oven if it costs him a horse blanket, and horse blankets are scarce with Sam. Well, Sam is an auctioneer now, he will sell anything from a coarsegrained barley sack to a cracked spitoon.'and throw hiscommisslon n his pocket. Yesterday he was engaged to dispose of, in the course of his legitimate business, the stock and fixtures formerly belonging to the Tombstone Club. lie thought there might bo some articles which would be of value to him, and as bis friend Joyce expected to be a bidder, lie took him one side and said, " Look-a- here, Joyce,. I guess I might want to buy some of these fixtures, a teaspoon, an empty bottle, or something of that sort. See? And when you sec mo shako my lead-pencil over my right car, and ask, 'Who will give another quarter?' you just laise her twcnty-five. See?'' Joyce, al ways willing to oblige a friend, told him lie would not forget, and would attend to the matter and "raise her twenty-live' every time his Fabcr wagged above his right car. It might be well to add here that Sam always corrals his cars WITH A BUFFALO ItOllE during the cold weather. The sale pio gresscd iu a satisfactory manner until a small hanging lamp was put up it had been put up once before and taken down especially for the occasion. The lamp in question was such as Sam sells in his store for $2.50, but when ho had reached that figure some one raised it fifty cents. By and by it went up twenty-five cents more. This rather surprised Sam, and he looked up to see who it was bidding and ho found it was Joyce. Still he thought nothing of it, knowing very well he didn't want it, and continued waving his hand and pencil above his head in a frantic manner until it was up to $7.50 and sold. So far, all right; but when he came to settle, Joyce, who had purchased a number of aitlcls, said, "There is that damned lamp that you paid $7.50 for." 'That I paid $7.50 for! Why, you are crazy. I never bid on thai infernal thing." " The hell you didn't. Didn't you tell m3 to raise her twenty-five cents every time you Hopped your pencil ovcr3'Oiir right car and you kept that bloody pencil Hopping and your car a wagging until I run it up to $7.50?"

Military operations arc lively, aud a deep interest is manifested in the vapidly approaching Indian war. National guauls arc arriving daily, and a general concentration of all the troops in the stato is now taking place at Hcrmosillo. Governor Ortiz has issued orders directing, the impressment ol all persons possible for the coming campaisn. Still another "prestame" is being collected (the secoud in two months) to meet the contingent ex penses or the impending Yaqui-Mayo dif Acuities. The govcrnistic pedestal or Car los Ortiz is iu rather a shaky condition, the underpinning is liable to give way, al any moment and prostrate him to earth. As it stands now lie can control only the state troops which number about 1,500, and it would be worse than folly for him to at tempt to maneuver this small force against the combined army of the Yaquis and Mayos, who OUTNL'MIiEU THAT SMALL SQUAD ten to one. It is a question whether he will ask help from Gen. Carbo, his sworn enemy, and whether Carbo would assist him if he was asked. Carbo is a small, but very intelligent man, and a good gen eral, and I think he will come without be ing invited by Ortiz, as ho is now only awaiting an opportunity to cut short the rule of his bigoted and conceited foe. Carbo is division commander of the slates of Sinaloa, Durango and Sonora, and by placing himself at the head of the federal forces, could, on some pretext common to Mexican rule, make it so warm for Ortiz thai ho would have to abdicate and retire to some foreign clime for his health. If Carbo comes there will be one of the bloodiest wars ever enacted within the boundaries of Sonora. Iu connection with a gentleman belonging to Ortiz's cabinet of stato officials, I broached the subject of THE PIIOI1A11LE OUTHHEAK of the Indians of the Yaqui aud Mayo rivers, and what would be the effect upon the stale government. He said that all the forces that could be mustered into the ranks from the people of the stato could not defeat ihe Indians, and that they would be completely powerless to stop the advance of them upon their cities with out the aid of the federal forces, and it was still to be sein what action the gover nor would take. He thought it quite im probable that Ortiz would call upon Gen eral Carbo for assistance, but the latter was in duty bound to protect the inhab itants of tho state, though it would be better for all if Carbo would remain where he now is ( Mazatlan ), for if he were to come, it would plunge the state into a civil war that would be unprecedented in history, as the state and federal troops aud Indians would be lighting promiscuously, and such a waifare would undoubtedly interfere with American interests and an intervention from the United States would surely come. "God pity our poor- pco. pie if it comos to this," lie added. KEVOULUTION HAS SUCCEEDED HEVOLITION for years, and i have hoped that our two years of peaceful rule would continue for countless more, but it seems we are a doomed people and have to suffer and suffer.

As a class our people are uneducated, and arc not capable of grasping tho grand ideas of a republican form ot government. They allow them selves to be li w.. uii by tyrannical gov crnors, who usurp power and dictate to them as an absolute ruler docs to his sub jects.

I asked him if i. -as not afraid ol expressing himself as he had just done to the Mexicans, and especially those who had power, aud he answered me in the following manner: "If I were lo cxprcs3 myself to Orliz in the way I did lo you, I would be shot before sun down " No one has any idea, who has not lived in the country, of THE ARIlITll.VKV IlL'LE of governors and their tools, the prefects.

Great preparations are being made at Hcrmosillo for the celebration of the con nection with the outer world by rail.

A Ilt'isht Outlook for the Cnnip. KiitntihlnNtlc Itcceptlon of Demo cratic Candidate, IHc. Special Correspondence of the Epitaph. Ressell, A. T. October 17. As this campjias not had a place in the Epitaph for a long time past 1 will presume on former indulgences and send you a few notes of late occurrences here and the camp's status. At the present lima it has a better outlook, and its resources give greater promise of assured and permanent prosperity than ever before in its history. Tho Russell Company smelter is now running at full capacity.and continuously, witli a result of between five and six tons of bullion daily. All trouble formerly ex pciicnccd by the Russell Company in se curing a sufliciency of water for their smelter has been removed by sinking more well,s and now nothing interferes to cause delays and stoppings in its opera, tions. the peaijodv mine, the leading and only producing mine at present of the camp, has never shown to better advantage. The drift on the 110 foot level is now driven 140 fret, aud shows a foil face of high grade ore, and thestop- ings from this level show large reserves of excellent ore. The winzo down to the 170-foot level shows finely, as also the two drilts run from this level, and the cross cut, which'shows for 50 feet a continuous body of ore across the formation. The ore from this mine gives an average yield of 20 per cent copper, and an average of gold and silver taken together, $150 to $200 per ton. Several other mines of tho district arc being developed, which give evidence ofgrcat promise and assurance of returns for the expenditures being made. Assessment work is being done throughout (he district, and alltogcther the camp has taken on a lively, bright and business like character. in roiNT or politics our people lake a due and laudable in. terest. Messrs. A. T. Jones, Ben Good rich, L. W. Carr, Gen. Wardwell and Marcus Smith, spent the 15th here. The whole day was given by these gentlemen in seeing the mine, getting acquainted with our people, seeing old friends and niakinc new ones. In the evening a bon lire was made, stand erected, and we had a speech from each one of the candi dates named, and from the applause greet ing each one, Mr. Editor, it is a certainly that not one of the democratic nominees will receive anything short of a rousing majority here. All of the speakers made favorable impressions. Mr. L. W. Carr, in his plain, straight-forward way, thor oughly and satisfactorily disposed of the groundless and empty charges made against him, and convinced all here that the democrats of 'Cochise county have, as their nominee for sheriff, a man of busi ness qualifications and CAPACITY IN AMPLE DEGltEE necessary for ihe office, and of unflinching integrity, staying and ether qualities suf ficient to the full measure. Messrs. Good rich, Smith and Jones, all made good and effcrtive speeches, convincing as to their respective adaptability to the offices which they seek. Gen. Wardwell fairly carried his auditory and all who heard him. The General has a peculiarly happy way of presenting his claims, aud of showing that the opposing candidates have no claims. When lie directed his artillery specially on his opponent Dunbar, whom he claims lakes advantage of him in the the use of his newspaper, he was greeted by rounds of applause, coming from all ir. respective of parly. The General cannot be downed. The visit of the gentlemen named has done the whole ticket good in convincing that not one objectionable feature belongs to it. Mr. Win. Rrcakeimdge, with his genial ways, left yesterday after a two days vlslfe carrying with him the respect of all for his truly democratic merits. Rrcak has . many old and tiue friends here. This camp is largely democratic, a small number of republicans and no inde pendents. The idea prevailing seems to be.among botli democrats and republicans, that they will support the respective nominees, and iron personal grouudsthey cannot do so, and have lo cut their ticket, they will seek in the nominees of tnc op posing party men of stable and defined political principles as well as other quali ties essential for the oflice, and no lnde pendents need apply. Democrat. A Sili'o l'olut of Law. In the case of the United States vs. Gra geda, for selling liquors to Indians, on dcinuirer to the indictment argued before the District Court at Tucson on October 18, a most momentous que.-tion suddenly pre sented itself, lo wit: Has the United States Congress power to prohibit the sale of liquor to the Indians? Messrs. Fitch, Anderson and Ainsa, in arguing the de murrer claimed that, the Arizona Pima, Papago and other tribes, under the Mexi cau constitution and laws from the time of the Independence, wore full Mexican citizens; and by the treaties of 181S and 185 J, all those Indian-: became American citizens, aud hence their rights as such could not be restricted by special legisla tion, nor could they be l educed to re iicrvalions and given in charge of special agents, nor prevented fiom buying or sell ing any and all things, the same as other citizens. The argument was ably sup. ported by quotations from the 1 7th Howard in the case of the United States vs. Ritchie, page 531. The United States District Attorney asked for time to reply which was granted. The question may change the whole Indian policy in Arizona. Frank S. Earle, treasurer of the Tomb stone Dramatic Club, reports the result of the late entertainments as follows: Total receipts, $335.05 ; total expenses $145; net assets, 190.05. The proceeds have been equally divided between the Methodist and Episcopal churches, and turned over to the treasurer of the same. County Recorder Jones left yesterday for licuson. It was a strictly business trip. His election by a large majority is so well assured that he docs not propose to fool away nny more time looking after his fences.
