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,"

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.

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.

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
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!
