Our meek Goternor is only biding his

IT i said that Governor Zulick will
vacate all Territorial offices now being
held by Republicans after his confirma

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.

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
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

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

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
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.

I have heretofore notified you that I
own three-fifths of the surface ground of
the Way Up mine. I now notifiy you
that I claim no right to said ground
against any one who has been in posses
sion of a lot or lots thereon for five years,
as I think the five years statute of limita

22, 1880, when the patent to the town-site-issued.
But, in any event, I would
not disturb any one who has improve
ments on a lot for several years; unless,
in the case of one who has indentified
himself with those who fraudulently ob
tained the townsite title from A'der Ran

But, as to all of the lots on said Way
Up mine now vacant or unoccupied, or
that have lately been settled on or bought
from the townsite claimants, or claimants
under the Way Up mine, I will assert
my rights, but will sell at a reasonable
price, reserving my right to refuse to sell
to any one who, by purchasing lots as
aforesaid from other claimants and pay
ing for more than two-fifths thereof
has indentified himself with the frauds.

citizens of Tombstone. They desire
further to inform the public that their
