Another lndlKnui letter From a Jtancher. Sulphur Spring Valley, . December 31, 1885. Editor Epitaph. Here they go again. On the nicht of the 28th a band of Indians passed through, the Sulphur Spring valley. They stole four horses from a company of surveyors encamped in the valley at the ranch of Whitley and Burton. They also took two horses from Duvall that were tied to a hay stack about fifty yards from the house. The trail of those renegades came from the direction of the Swisshelms and headed towards the Jones canyon in the Mule mountains. This may be the same band that took Robert Crouch's horses and Montgomery's team on the 30th. They appear to be coming thicker and faster as time rolls around. I am afraid General Crook has got to many men in the field. Ths first thing we know some of them will get in the way ana get hurt. We have sent lung telegrams to the president praying for aisistace; we have petitioned the w.ir department; we have at a large expense scik a committee to Washington to present our supplications; we have petitioned the governor of the territory to call an extra session of legis lature to authorise him to enlist a few companies of rangers and to appropriate money to arm, equip and pay them. Our prayers are unheeded; our peti tions have gone to the waste basket; our committee spurned with contempt and told to (go home and die like men and not be kicking up a stink in Washington about small matters when the silverques tion was absorbing the minds of the administration. I noticed, however, by an eastern paper that the president had entertained a committee of lantern jawed humanitarian foots of the east, that know about as much about the Indian charac ter as a horse knows about his grand father, and the pies.dont informed them that he would give their suggestions oh he Indian cjuistii n due consideration. The whole troubb about this question is this, men who never came in conttct with savage t ibes do not know that the nearer man approiches the savage stale, the more sure he is to attribute all kind acts to fear. Hence it is that ihe nation who treats with a savage instead of dictating to him fails in its object, and thousands of the :st hard worUing settlers of the fron- honest hard woruing tier are slain, tortured and their-property destroyed, and finally the savage yields with ten times the depletion in his ranks that would have been necessary if the proper cause had been pursued. But there is no use of arguing a ques tion that frontiersmen all undei stand, and life is to short to educate the masses of our people who reside east of the Mississippi on this question. There is no nation on the globe who are far enough advanced in civilization to keep a record of past events that pre sents a parallel case to the Indiaivpolicy of the United States. .V No man who understands the suvjc!t can find language that will give utterjce to his sentiments. The instincts ot the mind and soul consign all adjectrTto contempt. Language was bestjyycd upon man for the expression of his WcS it dumb for want of a sound that wiH paint on the minds of his felloumeng thoughts andjemotions that curdlvTTG blood of the frontiersman when 1 called upon to witness scenes I fari to describe. iM If the present policy is to be purl . , and the government is going 11:80 a in 11:20 a m 10 55 hi 10.25 Jk. ll:10,W 0.25 a in 0.00 am 8.20 am 7:50 a m j 0:40 a m 7.00 a in U.00 a in 5.25 a ni 4.45 a m j to allowii5TliPiT to be driven from our homes and rhake us hunters of men, the sooner we start in the better.

The benefit tendered Professor Chris tol on New Year's night at the Bird Cage was attended en masse by the lovers of the manly arts of this city. To say that the expectations of the large crowd, pre sent were fully realized, is but stating a self-evident truth. For several days our people looked forward to New Year's niht, with anxious expectation, and fioin the well-known reputation of those who so kindly consented to assist on the occasion, the public were assured of an enjoyable time. The glove contest be tween Walker and Edwards proved a conspicuous feature of the entertainment. Mr. W., however, succeeded in getting away with his antagonist without much difficulty. Contrary to the expectation of a majority of those in attendance the dusky damsel of the Apache persuasion failed to show up in propria person. The Messrs Parker brothers also added no little toward making the occasion a success. The greatest interest, how ever, was centered in the heavy lifting of Schumacher, tht winner of the late match over Professor Marc Christol. A ponderous bar of iron, weighing fully 150 pounds, was raised aloft in Mi. Schumacher's hands, and in addition to this was the entire weight of three aver age sized men, who held on to the pro jecting ends, and the whole carried about the state with, apparent ease by the young hercules. His strength is cer tainly marvelous, and we predict that at no distant day he will rank with the heavy lifters of the world, as well as carry the palm ot victory as me Dest Graceo-Roman wrestler. The MtockKruwerN tleetlne. The Tombstone Stockgrowers Associa tion held their regular meeting at the rooms of the board of Supervisors yes terday. The following gentlemen an swered to the roll call: Theo. F. White, President, and Messrs. Hudson, Vickers, Everhardy, Pascholy, McClure, Green, Roberts, Ba)less-, Dunbar and Berk holder. J. V. Vickers as appointed clerk pro tern., and on suspension of the rules Mtsrs. J. M. Aaliin, J.n. C. Pe sley and Brewster Om.eron were elected mem bers of the association. A communii a tion was received from the ! ock associ ation at Tres Aianias to tin- effert that a committee ot two, consisting of Dunbar and Robinson, had been appointed by that body, having in view the forming 01 an executive committee from all the as sociations in Cochise county, fixing the plact of meeting at Benson; and the object of this executive committee was for a united action on the part of the cat tlemen for the prosecution of cattle thieves. The Tombstone association thought favorably of the proposition, and a com mittee of six, consisting of the following well-known gentlemen, was appointed for the purpose of representing their associ ation: Theo. F. White, T. F. Hudson, Jacob Everhardy, E. O. McClure, Jo seph Pascholy and C. M. Bruce. J. V. Vickers, of Tombstone, was elected a delegate to represent the asso ciation at the International Cattle and Horse Rangers convention to be held at Denver January 27, 1886. The stock associations of this county are made up of men of intelligence and means. They are determined that this county at least shall be free from cattle and horse thieves, and no effort will be spared to vigorously prosecute all char acters of that kind, in support of this proposition. Two of Arizona's ablest lawyers, Messrs. Goodrich and Smith, have been retained ftr this purpose. aaa.rlage Bells. (.Councilman John Pidwell and Mrs. Simmons, both of whom are well and favorably known in Tombstone were married last evening at the M. E. church. Mr. Pidwell is councilman from the third ward in this city, and since his election to the position has proved himself a man of ability and character, after the cere mony was performed the happy couple accompanied by their many friends were driven to the residence of the bride, where a supper was spread in readiness for the young couple and ther friends, which numbered something over one hundred. After supper had been par taken, the Glee club and the Tombstone band discoursed some of their sweet and cheering melodies to the assembled and liappy throng. After the greater portion of the night had been exhausted in the singing of songs and mutual exchanges of goodfellowship, the vast company took heir leave of the happy couple. The EPITAPH in common with the many good friends of the joyous party drank to the happiness and prosperity of the new made couple. Tucson, January 2, 1886. Editor Epitaph: Arm set all right. Will be home to-morrow. D. McSwegacc. The Burnside Post held their regular meeting last e vening, but the Epitaph failed to learn what action had been taken in reference to their proposed petition. A Bold Bo 1 bery. Sheriff Hatch last night received in formatios from the Sheriff of Apache county that the treasurer's safe of that county had been robbed of its entire con tents on the night of the 27th of Decem ber. A reward of $1,000 is offered for the capture and conviction of the rob bers. It seems that there were several men in the party who did the pilfering, the names of which are unknown. Mr. Heney, a prominent rancher from Tres Alamos, is visiting the city. Gentlemen desiring to enjoy a good pleasant smoke will do well to call at the cigar store of Dave Cohn, as he keeps nothing but the best. Frttsh's circus have rented a portion of the Vizina grounds for the erection of their tents. The location selected is that opposite Casper Taylor's residence on Toughnut street. The Epitaph takes no stock in' the town rumor that Pat Holland is about to marry the Apache squaw, but Pat could teach her the crooked ways of civilization as well as any man in the country. Ex-Governor Davis, of Minheslota, is a a ver accomplished lingui'st,,5p4aking and translating Greek, Latin, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. His translations from these tongues are said to be remarkable for their accuracy. The ball last night at the Skating Paviliion was quite well attended by the elite of the city. This institution offers so many superior advantages over that of any other in this direction, that the proprietors are sure of a fnll house at each entertainment. Prof. Christol wishes to express his thanks to the people of Tombstone for their kind patronage extended him in his benefit at the Bird Cage. The professor thinks some of locating in Tombstone and opening the Bird Cage theater as a first-class sporting house. , Marshal Meade returned yesterday from Huachuca, bringing with him the soldier who shot and killed a Mexican at that place last Saturday. An Etitaph reporter learned from a gentleman of the post, that the Mexican when killed was in the act of of killing a sieer "belonging to the Hayes & Land C.t le Co , and also ihal he was .1 confirmed cattle ihicf. Attention is called to the advertise ment of A. Cohen of the New York store. Mr Cohen informs the Epitaph that his intentions are to close out his business in Tombstone for the purpose of embarking in a like enterprise in" the city of New York. Parties desiring any thing in the lineof dry and fancy goods will do well to give Mr. Cohen a call. Job Seamans & Son announce to their many patrons that they have in stock the most elegant and artistic display of diamonds and Christmas presents, etc., etc., that has ever been offered to the a , t citizens of Tombstone. They desire further, to inform the public that their reputation for upright, square and legiti mate dealing is so well established, that they are not driven to resort to decep tionhanging out the " red flag," or ad vertising " snide prize packages," but on the contrary, they give a' "fee simple' to every article sold by them. A No. I goods, genuine articles and small profit's for cash is their motto. The following are the lucky numbers that drew the prizes on exhibition at Schmieding's jewelry store: 112, 173, 63,122,200,73,130,416, 385, 137, 167, 219.
