UUVBA.K. Editor Prop. Vremiint Htrtwt, Opposite City Hall r nbitaM, 0M Countr,ifaoa CITY AW CDIHTY OFFICIAL PAPER The htrd timrs have had one good effect in Pima county. A number of men have set to work chloriding aroind the Santa Ritas and the ore shipments are now quite considerable from that district. All the miners are reported to be making money. Gov. Zui.lCK, in his endeavors to ex plain away that proclamation, is line a m.in trying to struggle out of a mud-hole. Every step he takes sends him deeper into the mire. Perhaps the best thing he could do would be to say nothing more about the matter. IN our telegraphic column will be found an interesting message from Lon don, vhich Intimates that the government contemplate the introduction of a bill imposing moderate duties oa imports. Stiuuld this be done, it would remove one of the strongest arguments of the American free-traders. Tucson is now promised, for certain, the commencement of her two proposed railroads the Calabasas and Narrow Gauge within a few weeks. What troubles the citizens of the ancient pu eblo is not so much the commencement, as the completion of these roads. A correspondent of the Citizen, writing from Gila county, says that it is universally believed among the settlers in that neighborhood that the renegades will soon make an attack an the reserva tion in force, for the purpose of regain ing possession of their squaws. It appears that the Apache squaw, now in durance vile in this city, was held by the Indians against her will and de sired to get away, so that we cannot regard this as a legitimate capture. We may still however point with pride to that papoose, who was taken ia Graham county at the beginning of the "war," The Epitaph council will make trusts that the city a proper showing to Mr. Sanford, the holder of city bonds, at their meeting this, evening. The bonds matured on the first day of this month, and strange to observe, no provision at all has been made to meet their pajment. For the good name and honor of our city, this matter should at once receive prompt attention. OUR evening contemporary announces in a very prominent manner that it is the official paper of Cochise county. Our e. c. is a little premature in this mat ters. Firstly, the mere fact of having the proceedings of the board of super visors to print, does not make a journal the official paper of the county, and secondly, the contract does not go into effect for ten days yet. Our neighbor should go a leedle slow. Zullrkon in.e"Ttalrteth." Washington, Jan. 4. In i?Iy to a request from Senator Morrill, cha rman of the Senate committee on territories, Gov. Zulick of Arizona has furnished a statement of the territorial debt and how incurred. The statement shows the ter ritory has outstanding warrants amount ing to $120,948, upon which it pays in terest at the rate of 10 per cent, per an num. In the tabulated statement ef the bonded indebtedness appear the follow ing items: Insane asylum, $100,000; Gila river bridge, $15,000; territorial uni versity, $25,000. The expenses of the last legislative assembly, in excess of the congressional appropriations, are shown 10 h tve been $51,152. The indebtedness' of the several counties of the territory aggregate $1,101,626. In concluding his report, Zulick says th enormous debt caused by bonds and appropriations may be ptoperly characterized as useless and extravagant legislation; "a wanton mis np. lopriaticm of public funds to pur poses from which the people derived no corresponding benefit. The insane of the territory are cared tor at the asylum at Stockton, Cal., for six dollars per week for each patient, which is much lets than wc could keep them for ourselves had we the asylum built. We require no univer sity nor a normal school; the wagon road and bridge bonds are properly coui ty and not te.Titorial charges; the appro priations for the expenses of the last ter ritorial assembly in excess of the con gressional appropriations for that purpose, arc in my judgment, clear violations of the federal statutes. Wc have a debt when all the appropria tions of the last assembly are prov.dcd fjr, of nearly $700,000, upon which the turitoiy must pay an annual interest of over $50,000, a result of recklessness and extravagance of the legislative government." i'ru'eriiou tor Great llrltnln LoNnov, Jan. 4. It is rumored that the cabinet has reached a decision on the tariff question. A bill, it is asserted, is to be prepared for introduction into parli'iment authorizing the imposition of duties on imports into Great Britain from countries imposing duties on British goods. The measure will be founded on the rep irt of Lord Iddesleih's commis sion on the state of trade, which finds first, that English depression is due pri marily to foreign competition, and dis poses of the previously accepted doctrine of exceptional causes, such as temporary overstocking; second, that successful foreign competition results from a fiscal policy prohibitive of imports of English imports; third, that the rise of rents and necessaries isproporti nately greater than that of wages, the standard of wages be ing kept low by effect on Br'tish indus tries of foreign competition; fourth, that 1 wide distress prevails in the manufactur ing districts, resulting from dearth of employment and inadequate wages for those who are "'empl-yed. The govern ment recognizes the fact that a system of purely protective duties will not be sanc tioned by public opinion. A cautious re arrangement of the import tariff with the view of compelling producing countries to concede favorable treatment to British products is demanded by a powerful and growing commercial element, by tin middle classes generally, and more largely than is generally supposed, by the masses. " The Epitaph was in error yesterday In its statement, that the soldier had been held to answer before the U. S. grand jury. The facts are that Commissioner Adam had his case under advisement and yesterday morning turned him loose. There not being sufficient evidence to warrant his being helri to answer. Harry Brook, one of the most widely and favorably known newspaper men on the'eoast, accepted a position on the Epitaph to-day, and in the future will chronicle the good deeds of our christian inhabitants. BUSSING LINKS. The King of Dahomey has 8,C00 wives. The missionaries are after him. An English silver penny of modern dato is worth 60 cents. Tho now Washinjton mansion of Colonel John Hay has cost him 8100, 000. Anthracito coal mined in Pennsyl vania sells for $25 a ton in tho City of Mexico. A new town in Russia has been named Now York in honor of the American metropolis. An iron pior 3,166 feet in length is being built at Boston. It will be the longest in tho world. A Cleveland paper gives prominence to tho report that Mrs. Garfield is writ ing a biography of her husband. In a riopiilnr American cyclopedia, in the section devoted to important rivers, no mention is" made of tho Ohio. Recent experiments have shown that tho first choice among colors of all children under soven years of age is yellow. Mr. John Henry Grimes, a native of Nova Scotia, resident of San Francisco, has four perfectly developed and ser viceable ears. A subterranean outlet to the Great Salt Lake of Utah has recently been found. Tho lake was discovered bv Colonel John C. Fremont in 186. Mrs. Livcrmoro thinks tho future of New England is behind her, and that the hope of progress now lies in the Western States settled from New En gland stock. In 1883 an American farm was estab lished In Corea, whereon nothing was to be grown but American vegetables. A recent report says tho enterprise has proved an entire success. A Chineso banker. Han Oua. of Can. ton, is said to bo tho wealthiest man in tho world. Ho pays taxes upon an es tate of 8450,000,000, nnd is estimated to be worth 31,400,000,000. Some ono wrote Gen. Sherman a let ter requesting a lock of his hair and an autograph. In reply tho general said: "I regret to stale that, as my orderly is bald, and as tho man who formerly wroto my autogiaphs has been dis missed, I cannot comply with your re quest" This was mailed without his signature. At tho recent meeting of a philosophi cal association in New York, tho presi dent, Mr. Latimer, read a paper on the "Migration of Races," in which he maintained that tho Anglo-Saxons are the remains of the lost tribes of Israel, though he acknowledged tho proof of the statement to be a littlo difficult of comprehension to tho ordinary mind. Tho Fronch government would like to give tho army tho privilege of wearing beards, but feels tho necessity of first consulting several high military author ities, as the opinions on tho subject are contradictorv. Meanwhile the nriwa falls back on history, and finds that tho conquerors of all ages were about equally divided between the shorn and unshorn. Tho great Mexican volcano Popocate petl has just been rcmeasured and found to bo 17,800 feet above the sea. Tho crater, which is completely obscured within by sulphurous vapor, is about two nnd one-half miles in circuit and 1,000 feet deep. Tho entiro center of the top of tho mountain seems to be lolid sulphur, which is deposited at the rato of a ton a day. Stirrups of solid silver, silver pommel and ornaments worth thousands of dol lars may bo seen on the saddle of tho gaucho, tho most picturesque character in the two Americas. Some saddles of tho sort weigh as much as the riders, nbont whoso belts lows of silver jingle. Tho gaucho always catrics tobacco, paper, flint and steol, and ho rolls his diraretto at full jmllos. A Good Illustration. A Marietta, Gn., correspondent writes to tho Atlanta Constitution the follow ing: Cobb superior court met hero last Monday, Judge Joel Branham, of Rome, presiding. Judge 5rowji was disquali fied from presiding. Judge Branham has won many golden opinions from our people by the impartial charges to tho juries and his just but lenient sen tences. Tho chargo of Judge Branham to tbe grand jury was strikingly forcible, and particularly so in expounding the duties of working tho public roads. In regard to breaking up tho practice of carrying concealed weapons, he gave an illustra tion that came under his observation whilo a practicing attorney in Rome. He had a clerk in his office who was in tho habit of carrying a derringer pistol in each of his vent pockets. This he tried to persuade him not to do, but he was persistent in his purpose. A client made a remark to tho clerk after ho (Branham) had lost his case that ho mado no effort to ' do his duty in tho matter. On accosting tho client about it he denied making the statement. Tho clerk and tho client and Judge Bran-" ham all met in the law office, when the clerk wanted to know of the client if he denied making tho aforesaid remark. Tho client emphatically denied it, when tho clerk, who was seated at tho table writing, looked up and simply remark ed: "You have lied, that's all." The client, who was a large, muscular fel low, picked urj the tortgs and was in tending to brain tho clerk, when the aforesaid clerk placed his fingers in his vest pocket and pulled out a derringer, and, without getting up from his seat, rested his hand on thottablo and ex claimed: "You put down thoso tongs!" Tho man very prudently put down tho tongs. When he had left the clerk said to Judge Branham: "You have always insisted that I should not carry a pistol, as I would havo no need of it Now, suppose that I had not had that weapon that fellow would have killed mo with thoso tongs." "Not at all probable," replied Judge Branham. "Why?" in terrogated tho surprised clerk. "Bo cause," replied Judgo Branham, "If you had been without a pistol you would not havo called tho fellow a liar." This was a revelation to tho clerk, and ho abandoned the practice of carrying con cealed weapons. Man for Master. A good btory is told about town at this moment says a Pittsburg Dispatch cor respondent There is a great demand for persons connected with the foreign logation. They nro invited everywhere. Young attaches who could not get in side of a fashionable door in London, Paris, Berlin, or the city from whence they came, aro hero lionized to a degreo that makes their heads swim. They aro naturally delighted with America, and float along on tho surfa'ce of tho fashion able current of Washington as big as Nowtown pippins. Some of theso fel lows actually live on their invitations to dinner, only paying for tho breakfast at some cafe. Well, tho story goes that ono of them was asked to dinner by a family, the heads of which were total 8trangors to him. Ho knew that invita tions had been extended to others of his set who had declined, so he was quite certain it was not his person that was wanted. Meeting another young fellow the latter suggested that an experiment be tried. "Give it to your valet," said his merry friend. "I'll wager they will never dis cover the difference; he's such a bloody Englishman. They don't know you. All they want Is somebody there, you know. Bv Jovp! what a lark!" "I'll do it." said the other. And he did. Instructing his valet, who is fully as polite and genteel looking as his master, tho latter posted off to tho resi dence at the proper hour in the legation carriage. What transpired there may be, imag ined, from the fact that among the din ner guc-ts given in the society papers was tho name of tho young secretary, and from tho accountof tho affair which has leaked out through other servants to whom the valet confided the story, it would seem from tho latter that the valet got along very well until tho wine began coming aVound to him too fre quently. Ho knew all about his mas ter's affairs, and discoursed on diplo matic matters with exceeding volubility. As ho got mellow, however, his dignity gavo way, and his gossip became that interesting stuff retailed by servants be low stairs. To anybody who had been accustomed to movo in diplomatic socie ty, his talk would havo betrayed the real state of tho case; but the parvenucs who were entertaining htm wero igno rant, and accepted his vulgarity as tho eccentricity of foreigners. They piled every courtesy upon tne valet until lie could no longer bear them, but was fin ally interrupted in the act of making lovo to one of tho ladies of tho house, put into his carriage quietly, and sent home. To tho credit of tho family, it ma' bo added that the young secretary never got another invitation. In his recent talk to tho Yale Kent Club Prof. Sumner said that no State should bo compelled, to educate tho children of its citizens "And no man should marry," ho continued, "unless ho can afford to support and educate his possible children. People talk about the rights of the parent and tho duty of the child, but I tell you that a man who is tho cause of his child's existence owes the child everything instead of being owed everything by tho child. Birth is a. aire misiortuno lor many children, and their parents cannot do enough for them In return for the inherited diseases and misfortunes which they bestow up on them. One of these duties is educa tion, and no man should marry who cannot carry this out! ... 1 Mr. Howells Is catching it again. A number of Boston women are rising up uud saying that ull his female charac ters are libels on the sex, and asking him what ho means by such conduct Such a storm always arises after Mr. iiowells has written a book. One man was asked by another, with wiiora he was not on tho best of terms, where he had taken ud his abnrin. nu l shouto be delighted if jou would draa in eom.e Tenia" NOTICE! -r the Occupants of tots on the Way " I have heretofore notified vou 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 tion commenced to run on September 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 indenlified himself with those who fraudulently ob tained the townsite title from Aider Ran dall, mayor, or who now buys or has late ly bought of them or given them aid or assistance. But, as to all of the lots on said Way Up mine now vacant or unoccupied, or that have lately been settled oryr 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. N. B. The two-fifihs interest in said Way Up surface which I do not own or claim, does not belong to any one in Tombstone, as near as I can find out by the records of the county. AMES Reillv.
