Recorder Clum did a rushing business yesterday. The board of supervisor were in ses sion last night. A set of composition billiard balls for sale at a bargain, at the Elite. t Entrees for the athletic sports to take place on Christmas day will be received by H. Schmeiding. A scrapping-match took place on the street late last night, in which only bil lins gate and fists figured. Dick Rule is an applicant, we under stand, for a position under a Democratic Rule in Arizona. Success, Dick. A Mexican yesterday created a little excitement on Allen street, by firing off a gun in the old Silver City corral. TheiMcucan who was arrested Sun day for drunkenness, was sentenced es terday to fifteen days by Recorder Clum. The Catholic feast heretofore adver tised to take place at the Mining Ex change, has been changed to Schieffelin hall. The water was lower in the mines yes terday than it has been for many days. In fact it was under complete control of the pumps. Colonel A. Lewis, who is a heavy owner in the Prompter mine, has re turned to the city after an absence of some months. The ore extracted from below water level in the hill mines is wonderfully rich, and gives courage to their owners to prosecute work vigorously. The counties of Sierra, Socorro land Grant, New Mexico, in imitation of Ari zona, are organizing a company to pro tect their people against the Apaches. The concert and f.tir to be given by the Catholic church will take place to night at Schieffelin hall, and not Mining Exchange hall, as heretofore published. The organization in this city of a so ciety having for its obiect the planting of suitable shade trees on our principal streets, would be heartily supported by our citizens. The case of Wm. Muton, who was ar rested for stealing a watch and chainf knife and rifle from James Hawkins, a few days since, was continued until 9 o'clock this morning. A Mexican with a cargo of assorted tanglefoot on board, amused the small fry yesterday on Fremont street by at tempting to ride a horse under full speed w ith a wagon in tow. The tendency to fight these days is at tributable to the v.triegated quality of beHezine imbibed by the parties interest ed. The better plan is to stick to the same old brand in small doses. Although our enterprising business men by their liberal spirit in advertising, hare, in a measure, lightened the arduous duties of ye reporter, the fact remains that news items of any importance are s scarce as ever. The Great Western Minstrel troupe, composed of colored soldiers from the Tenth cavalry, stationed at Mescal Springs, are in town, making arrange ments for the concert to be given on the 25th of this month. Bill McFarland, of the Aztec house, r eturned yesterday evening from a few days' sojourn in the Chiricahuas. He brought with him the largest fish that ever came from White river; weight, 130 pounds. T. L. Ward, ex-sheriff of Cochise coun ty, but now a prosperous rancher of the Salt River valley, arrived in Tombstone last night. When he returns Mrs Ward, who has been tarrying in Tombstone, will accompany him to their new home. The carnival at the skating rink, which was to have taken place on Christmas night, has been postponed on account of the non-arrival of costumes. Due notice will be given of the date of its occur rence. On Christmas Eve an enjoyable social will be given at the rink, Charley Mellgren, of the Oriental, wishes to correct an item in last evening's Tombstone. He does not wish to be understood as claiming to have the "best" whiskey and cigars in the city; but he does claim to have as good as can be obtained either in Tombstone or else where. Surveyor General Hise informs the Star that he has been notified that the annual appropriation for public surveys in the territory is now available. Parties in different parts of the territory desiring surveys in their localities, would do well to make their wants known to the Su-veyor-GeneraL At the same time par ties desiring surveys would do well to fully describe the locality, accompanied by a diagram as to the adjacent surveys already made, general character of the country, and their postoffice address. Of unblushing thievery, the Tucson Star is a bright and shining example. In this infamous resptct there is certainly no other Arizona journal that can ever approach the Star. The EPITAPH doesn't mind the wholesale purloining of news items for which the Star is notorious but when it comes to stealing outright a carefully prepared mining article of half a column or more, this paper feels im pelled to call the thief to time. There fore, Hughes, occasionally give credit where credit is due. The interest manifested in the forth coming wrestling match between Prof. Lucien Marc Christol and Peter Schu maker, at Schieffelin hall, which will take place Christmas night, continues unabated. That one of the most exciting exhibitions of manly strength and skill will be afforded those who attend can be safely promised. Prof. Christol enjoys the reputation of being one of the most expert wrestlers on the Pacific Coast, and his presence in Tombstone has lent an additionial zest to the manly sports. Mr. Schumaker, al though an amateur and but little known beyond the limits of the Territory, cer tainly possesses those staying qualities of muscle and endurance necessary to success. Of the many matches in which he has heretofore engaged, in one only has he been worsted. Tne friends of Mr. Schumaker are nowise backward in expressing the conviction of Mr. Christol will be put to his best to down his oppo nent. County KeeordH. The following instruments have been filed in the office of the county recorder: DEEDS REAL ESTATE A. Jordon to C. Mardoni, certain real estate in Tombstone; $50. Desperate Tblevm. Last Friday evening Mr. George H. Judd, of Wilcox, went out to see his father, who is living on his ranch, about eighteen miles from Wilcox. On ap proaching the house he discovered that the door had been broken open, and an examination revealed the fact that some one had ransacked the place, carrying off everything of value, including the wearing apparel of Mr. Judd. A search of the premises was made and the tracks of two or more parties were discovered. Mr. Judd mounted his horse and started in pursuit. The Mexicans, for such they proved to be, were overtaken at the top of the divide, in the very act of donning the clothing stolen from the bouse. Mr. J. ordered them to surrender, at the same time drawing his revolver, but they were too quick for him. They turned loose a broadside and brake for the hills. A searching party was soon organized and started out with the intention of over taking the thieves, but up to date no news as to their whereabouts has been obtained.

A good deal of excitement was occa sioned on the streets yesterday afternoon by the announcement that a serious breakdown had occurred at the Grand Central works. The news spread like wildfire, and was followed by the report that the mines would necessarily be closed down for a period of net less than three months. An Epitaph emissary was immediately dispatched to the scene of the reported disaster. Arriving on the hill, Superintendent Gage was found, apparently irra very calm and unruffled frame of mind, which gave instant reas surance to the news gatherer. Upon in. quiry it was learned that an accident had occurred, but not of such serious import as was at first feared. Noticing an ir regularity in the working of the pumps, the engineer in charge upon investiga tion discovered tha't the ponderous pump-rod, which is nxli square, solid steel, weighing upwards of 90,000 pounds, and 500 feet in length, showed signs oi a fracture near the top. The machinery was stopped at once and a thorough examination begun. It was discovered that in addition to the frac ture mentioned, there was ANOTHER BREAK near the 100-foot level; while it is be lieved yet another will be found near the 300-foot level. While the accident is to be regretted and will necessitate an ex penditure of about $15,000, yet the com pany is to be congratulated that the flaw was discovered before the rod had en tirely parted. Had this not been the case, the result would have been most disastrous. Had the ponderous weight been suddenly released while the ma chinery was in full motion, complete destruction of the fly-wheel, edgine, etc., must have resulted. The steel rod was put in merely as an experiment, opinions differing among first-class mining men as to whether it would prove superior to the tried and tested timber rods that have heretofore been in vogue. The result proves that the experiment, while a cost ly one, has not proven a success. The rod WILL. BE REPLACED as soon as energy and money can ac complish it. The new rod will be of Puget Sound pine, a quality that has stood the test of long usage, and which is in use in many of the mines of Europe, as well as those of this country. That a solid steel shaft, with apparently little direct strain upon it, should be broken seems to the superficial observer almost incredible. The cause assigned by com petent engineers is the tremendous vibra tion caused by the extreme length and enormous weight of the shaft. As before stated, when the news of the accident reached town it caused quite a panicky feeling among business men and others, who saw in their minds a cessa tion of operations at the mines and con sequent depression and stagnation of all kinds of business. However, the EPI TAPH is in possession of facts which happily prove these fears without foundation. Pending the putting in of the new rod, there will in reality be employed a larger number of men than at present. There will be no draft of men from the work ings of either mine. The accident will "let out" only a few top men, engineers, wipers, etc., while the repairs will require a much larger number. So it will be iesn that no cause for apprehension ex ists. The Contention pumps will continue as usual, and it is believed they will be enabled to keep the water down to the present level. Messrs. White and Gage are not in the least discouraged by the accident. They regard it merely as an incident, and not as a disaster. As has been previously stated by the EPITAPH, the capacity of the pumps to control the water and drain the mines has been am ply demonstrated; and no tnvial accident such as that of yesterday will prevent a thorough exploitation of the unexplored depths. L. Lineberg, President of the Hebrew Benevolent Association of Tombstone, at the meeting of the association on Sunday, tendered his resignation, which was respectfully accepted. Mr. Line berg's reason for resigning Is that he in tends shortly changing his residence to California. Our Mexican neighbors understand the Indian question thoroughly. Twelve days ago, three Indians, couriers from Geronimo, entered Casa Grande for the purpose of making peace with the Mexi cans. The peace commissioners are now in jail and strongly guarded. They will be taken out and shot soon by retaliation for murders committed in the past. They will shortly climb the golden stair, and become good Indians. Xotlee).
