Ariron CITY U C3U.W OFFICIAL PAPER Therk is now a prospect that the ptesidential succession question will be settled liy Connres at an early day. Our meek Goternor is only biding his time. He will evidently become an . tTtnsie partisan when he gets the bit. The fact that troop's have been sent to Salt Lake cilv, is a sufficient guarantee that no danger exists of an uprising of the Mormon. The telegraph informs us that the sacred white elephant of Mandalay is dt.ul. As to what effect this depressing new.-, will have on the cod-fish market in Portugal, we are unable to say. IT i said that Governor Zulick will vacate all Territorial offices now being held by Republicans after his confirma tion by the Senate has been effected. Look out, Bro. Churchill, this means mischief for you. Tut present strained condition of af fairs in England over the Irish question, may result in the downfall of the present ministry. Of one thing, however, there can be little doubt. Parnell stock is in the ascendancy,and home rule for Ireland is the only measure that can bring peace to Hold Hinghland. The blessings of this world are tem pered, as it were, to those who can afford the strain. Hut the luxury of gas, es pecially unadulterated Tombstone gas, warranted not to rip. run down at the heel or burst the meter, is a consumation of ethereal bliss not often vouchsafed the humble denizens of this mundane sphere. Dakota is nothing unless original. With a flourish of trumpets she announ ces to the world th.it hc is a S:ate, with a big S. C.rres may, ptrhaps, take a different view of the subject, and con clude that a few years of waiilrj in a territorial com lition, may knock a lu'Ie freshness out of the would be statesmen in that delictablt clinie. The recent visit of the vice-president of Honduras to the United States, is sig nificant, inasnvich as England for years has monopolized the trade of the South American states to the detriment of this country. The object of Senor Zelaya is to cultivate more friendly relations be tween the two countrie'and perfect abet ter system of commercial relations. THE Indian raids, it is said, is having a depressing effect on the small mining men and prospectors in Grant and Sierra counties, New Mexico. The men are afraid to go out in small numbers, and the result is that numberless claims have been permitted to go unworked. It is hoped that the company of rangers now being organized in that section will aid in restoring peace and quiet to the disturb ed community. The board of Supervisors of Cochise -county at their meeting last night author ized Sheriff Hatch to engage suitable men for the purpose of circulating the petition amongst the citizens of the vari ous towns in the county, petitioning Gov. Zulick to call an extra session of the Legislature for the object of putting out one or two companies of rangers in the field to protect the property and lives of our people. This action of the board will meet the approval of our citizens, and the Epitaph trusts that our governor, who has had some experience with ithe Apaches, and has told the people of Co chise county that he will use every hon orable means at his command to bring peace and quietness to our borders, wiil give this matter his sanction, as by this and this method only we can expect re lief. The Epitaph has "no harsh or un :ust criticisms of the soldiers of our gov ment the cause of their inactivity lies tt. the department at Washington. "Wi'liY1? nuntre ant' fifty determined the field in pursuit of the In Givn.d peace will soon come to the Arizona. he Epitaph is of the opinion that this movement of calling an extra session of the Legislature will meet with opposition in certain portions of our Territory; but we will say to those people, that Cochise county is a large and prosperous portion of Arizona. We pay into the territorial government a large amount of money as our share of the territorial tax; we have been in existence as a county six years, and this is the first time in the history of the county that we have ever asked any thing from the government. Our last Legislature made large appropriations for diffe:ent sections of the Territory. To ibis we never demurred. Now all we ask si' n umc.ciii 9ci.uui ui wc i ciTUory. 10 I "ft """"I -"- 'uubai x. latuD m.i, -m HB k J t n 14 , 4A is fair treatment at the hands of our neighboring counties. Our homes are being destroyed and our citizens murder ed. The Apaches are allowed to roam and plunder at will through our county, and in the name of fair play, which should be guaranteed every citizen be neath the American flag, we ask that something be done for our relief. We have waited long and patiently lor some action on the part of the military which would lead us to, believe that those troubles would be put down, but in vain. Every day brings its harvest of killing; some of our citizens are laid low by the duel hand of the Apaches, justice de fied and humanity outraged and trampled beneath the cruel feet of the Apaches. The American flag, which is synonymous with freedom and liberty, is here re garded witrik derision and disdain and railed in the mire to the tune of the murderous songs of the San Carlos In dians. A rteaflUK Sektaae. A Casa Grande correspondent of the Florence Enterprise says it becomes his painful duty to inform the public of an other atrocity committed by Indian Agent Wheeler, of the Pima agency, that surpasses in fiendish cruelty any devilish ingenuity any of his dark deeds thathave yet been brought to light. It is a fact easily proved that Wheeler has imported from the East a large number of rolling pins of the latest and most deadly model, and it is his intention to furnish every squaw on the reservation with one of these formidable weapons of offensive warfare. The result is easily foretold. The destruction of all tribal laws and the inauguration of a reign of anarchy and bloodshed will be but a question of a short time. The boasted liberty of the noble red man will become a thing of the past and he will be reduced to the same pitiable condition of subjection and court plaster as his pale face brothers. It is an inopportune moment to champion the cause of the Indian, but surely civilized and Christian men will not stand passive when such a doom menaces a tribe of inoffensive and peaceful red men. Im mediate action can alone save them from a fate a thousand times worse than death. O. F. Thornton, a former Tombstone mining and newspaper man, arrived yes terday evening form P henix, after an ab sence of nearly three years. Mr. Thorn tpn has a host of friends in this city from whom he will receive a most cordial wel come during his sojourn among us. An Epitaph rock sharp was yester day shown a piece of oie from the bot tom of the Contention shaft. It was a specimen calculated to gladden the eye of a vtteran prospector white quartz, literally bespangled with the glistening yellow metal in all its virgin purity. With plenty of such "truck" in the lower lev els, no fears of a close down need be en tertained. The new Democratic fandling has at last found sponsors in the persons of Messrs. Brawley and Tomlinion, both practical newspaper men. If those boys don't succeed in rattling the dried bones of the old defunct Democratic party of this county we shall be terribly mistaken. You will haye to slave very hard, boys, to get any coin, as they are notorious for holding on to everything but "wind;" in fact that is what they fought their last aampaign on, and that is what they had leit when it was over, and the supply is not yet exhausted. tfor Krnt. Two or more handsomely furnished rooms in adobe building on Fourth and Bruce streets. Two furnished rooms for gentlemen; low price. One five-roomed cottage. One three-roomed house. In quire on premises corner Fourth and Bruce streets or of Robt. Eccleston, City Wood & Coal Yard, Fourth and Touijh nut streets. The Catholic church social, which will take place Dec. 22, promises to be a splendid affair, as the promoters are spar ing no efforts to make it an enjoyable time. After the raffle ha taken place dancing will begin and all are expected to do their utmost to make the time pass pleasantly. The best quality of refresh ments will be served and the finest music to be had will be engaged for the occa sion. With the small charge of 50 cents admision the hall will undoubtedly be well filled. The object for which this so cial is given is a worthy one that of pay ing off the debt of the church. The so cial will be held at Schierfeiin hall.
