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.

""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

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,
