Artion CITY A 40 C3J.1TY OFFICIAL PAPER The followers of Ireland's champion, Charles Parnell, are jubilant at their prospects of having home rule for Erin. v.c r.f strife and bloodshed failed to accomplish the result so quickly ob-( t.iined by the ballot. Thk Tucson Tirres is somewhat f.ice tious in in remarks in reference to the Epitaph's, special concerning the inter view between Gov. Zulick and Gen. Sheridan. The Times pilfered the spec-r ul Irom tlie columns of the EPITAPH without giving due credit, and now wi th an innocent air that would be laughabHj were it not for the known fact that it ii not sincere in what it says, alludes to the affair as a question between the Journal-; Miner and the Epitaph. The Times? bit nobly and now nurses its wrath and chagrin behind the cloak of an innocent) spectator of the fray. I The Albuquerque Journal, of Decem-L bcr 23d, contains an article reflecting! upou the character and intelligence of the, people of Tombstone. For puerile maud-i hnjr and asinine gibberish its equal U rarely met with. It is the idle and sense less vaponngs of an idiot, coupled with the reasoning of a blackguard. The Epitaph recognues the ear-marks of the Journal's hired man, whose proverbial' affinity for unrectified corn juice, is so well known. While indulging in e pyro-' tecnic of generalities, he appears to lose sight of the fact that he is guilty of per-i petrating a vile slander upon an intelli-' gent community. Christmas day! What recollections of. the past, the dim, fading years that' stretch out adown the long ago, and in which the ceaseless joys of childhood dajs flit hither and thither like the shad ows of elfin land, does the sound of this hallowed name bring back to memor) J The mind reaches out to grasp the ideals of the entombed years, and recoils at th reihz.tion of the stern realities of the present. In the clays of long ago, when the little heart fluttered and beat with anxious expectation at the coming of he natal day of our K-jdsemer, ,no joy was so great .-i to sit in childish innocence and tell of the gifts that we received, the nords of checr.and kindness spoken, and the generous impulses of love and forebearance that filled the soul toward even the humblest of God's creatures. The memory of the happiness of thoe days should soften the heart of to-day. The knowledge of having enough and to spare, should excite within us a desire to lessen the burdens and cares of our less fortunate fellow-men, by acts of kindness which cost us but little, and which, perhaps, in after years may re turn as a blessing to gladden the path way of age and infirmity. Remember the poor. Governor Zulick's proclamation, winch appears in another column of the Epitaph, sssms tn be entirely uncalled for. It wis doubtless prompted by the idle vaponngs of one or two irresponsible newspapers published in the southern portion of the territory. Incendiary screeds have from time to time appeared in some of our contemporaries, but no article in the least degree inflammatory has been given the responsibility of pub lication in any journal of respectability and standing. Had the governor been an old resident of the territory, he would doubtless have realized the utter insig nificance of the source from which the incendiary and sensational articles re ferred to in his proclamation have em anated. In the several communities where they were published their only effect was to create a smile of derision. Every well-informed man in southern Arizona knows that the danger which the proclamation seeks to guard against is wholly imaginary, There is not even a remote probability of a general uprising and an advance upon San Carlos. Our people have suffered long and grievious ly from Apache Indians, but they have not reached nor will they reach, the pitch of desperation contemplated in Go-ernor Zulick's proclamation. While the proclamation is without substantial foundation, it may yet be productive of good result for Arizona. It may direct the attention of the general government in this direction and induce a more thorough investigation of the situation than has yet been made by the authori ties at Wassington. Should this happily be its effect should an exhaustive ex amination be entered into and the true facts be revealed to the general govern ment there can be no doubt that meas ures would then be inaugurated which would afford speedy and endoriag re lief for oar people.

OGLESBV, Pre, Louisi ""HUJrC'HVfril'Walth. ALBANV, N. Y., Dec 24. The New York correspondent of the Evening Journal telegraphs as follows to that paper this afternoon: "The death of Mr. William H. Vander bilt and the amount and disposition of his estate still continue to be subjects of convemtion among the capitalists of the city who knew him intimately. One of these gentlemen to-day astounded me with the staterSent that Mr. Vaderbilt's wealth had been underestimated instead ot overestimated by the public, and that at the time of his death he was worth nearer $400,000,000 than S200.ooo.ooo. 'Why,' said this gentleman, 'Mr. Van derbilt owned all of the Harlem road, which is worth at least $25,000,000, and the road from Spuyten Duyvil to New York city, which a number of years ago was leased to and is now used by the New York" Central aud Hudson river, and is worth more than $10,000,000. He owned four-fifths of the Wagner Sleeping Car company, worth $3,000,000 or $6,000,000. "'He virtually owned the two upper bridges at Albany, the income from which must capitalize the bridges at over $1,000,000 eich. He owned two thirds of the cantilever bridge at Niagara Falls and five bridges across the Mississippi, each of which is worth for its income over $1,000,000. Besides all these he owns the freight transfers on the Hudson river, out of which John H. Starin made a colossal fortune several years ago. He was also largely interested in Atlantic steamship lines a fact not generally known to the public "'Why, the old Commodore when lie died left about $200,000,000, although the public generally estimated his wealth at only $80,000,000. Cornelius Vandcr bilt's will was so drawn that an examina tion of it would give no idea of the actual extent of his possessions, and William H. Vanderbilt's 'will was drawn in the same manner." "I spoke this morning with one of the younger Vanderbilt's on the subject, but he was unwilling to say anything on the matter. The sons all feel deeply the loss of their lather, and are devoting them selves to the closing, up of his estate. The reports that tbey have already be gin operating on Wall street are wholly (Xc BK.Mtl IllMlH. Benson, Arizona, Dec. 24, 1885. Editor Ei'iiAi'ii: 1 will ivejoua few item-, from our town. We have ben having a lively time for three or four days. Benson was visited by an excur sion party on their way to California from Ohio and Iowa, to spend the win ter. This is one of the largest excursion parties that has ever passed through Benson, it having fourteen coaches, con taining four hundred people. They looked like an army along the railroad track. The new saloon, the Cattle Exchange, James Barret and Robert L. Miller pro prietors, opened on the night of the 21st, and was one of the finest displays ever had in the town. The table was spread with roast pig, boiled ham, etc., in abundance, and theuine and cider was of the finest quality that could be pro cured in the Eastern market. This sa loon is second to none in the territory, and with Mr. Barret and Mr. Miller as proprietors, there is no doubt of success. Mr. Ben Goodrich put in his smiling appearance on the 23d, in W. L. Roache's court, as attorney for John Thede in an assault and battery case, wherein Thede was defendant. Mr. Thede was released, notwithstanding the evidence to the con trary. To-morrow is Christmas, and the Knights of Pythias are preparing for a grand ball on Christmas night. A Oiril .r I'IibiiUh. In behalf of the Catholic church, I wish to thank those who so generously contributed to the success of our late social. The committee of arrangements were especially zealous, and it was largely to their well directed efforts that so great a degree of success attained. The public generally, however, are justly entitled to the greatest meed of praise for their cordial support of so worthy an object. Therefore, in behalf ef the church, the p iple of Tombstone will please accept t heartfelt thanks of Father Dolce. The Epitaph wi-hes its readers a happy, h.ippy Chri-fias. The sudden demi . of Vanderhilt, has caused a panic in II street. Western union stocks are selling far below former prices. Miss Cora Goodrich, in her presenta tion .tddress esterday, showed marvel- . ous powers of eloquence, which both J astonished and captivated her hearers. Thomas Eing and Frank Abbott, who left Tombstone the latter part of November for Sonora to purchase a band of horses, are expected to arrive in town to-day. Colonel William Herring and Judge Street made quite lengthy speeches to the scholars of the public school yester day, which was well received by our fu ture statesmen. Our good looking friend who is the happy po5sesor of numerous hat bands of a very suggestive character.it is whispered, will soon sacrifice himself on hymenial's altar. A man appeared on the streets of Den ver recently driving a spanking team of fully developed elks worth $i,;co and capable of traveling 190 miles a day. The children thought Santa Claus had come to town. Pat Holland, an attache of the Epi taph, is the possessor of the finest bridle ever seen in Tombstone. It is made wholly of red, white, blue and b' ck horse hair, with elegant tasse s of the same material, and is certainly one of the most perfect and ingenious pieces of workmanship that can be imagined. The bridle was made in Carson City and took the prize at the fair a short time ago. The bridle is valued at $4,5, but Pat says that his best girl and his favorite mustang will sport the whole concern in the sweet by-and-by. President Cleveland has pardoned Bishop Udall, of St. Johns, Arizona. Udall was convicted of perjury before Judge Howard, and sentenced to three years' imprisonment in the Detroit house of correction. At the time of Udall's conviction the Journal took occasion to say ttm it thought his sentence was un just. Being a prominent Mormon, preju dice was strong against him, and the findings of the court seemed severe in view of all the facts elicited at the trial. Bishop Udall is now on his way to his home in Arizona. Albuquerque Journal. A vacation has been accorded the scholars of the public school during the present week. The closing exercises, which consisted of recitations, composi tions, songs and the accustomed drill in calisthenics, were gone through with in a manner that reflected great credit on both.teacher and pupil. The presenta tion of a handsome volume of poems, the works of Jean Ingelow, to Miss Hart by Miss Cra Goodrich, on behalf of the scholars, was a pleasant feature of the occasion. Space will not admit of a more extended report of the exercises. The Epitaph cannot permit, however, the opportunity to pass with out saying a good word for our public school, and the efficient manner in which it is conducted, MERRY H On Wednesday, December 9. 1S85, we will commence our GRAND HOLIDAY.
