Tojibitono, Ojohlo County, Arfion. 6ITY AID COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER As long as the militarhave control at San Carlos, just so long will there be Indian outbreaks and murdered settlers. The Star says it don't believe it was the object of the Governor's proclama tion, or that, if it was, it don't care; and Hughes intimates lurther that, with the Star at his back, he considers himself a big?er man than old Zulick, anyhow. The Epitaph did not wish to cast any reflections upon the.membcrs of the old Council. Wo simply called the at tention of the present Buard to the fact that no provisions had been made to meet the payment of the $io,ooo bonds which 'ate now due. TURN hich way we may, in the edi toiial column of our exchaper, we are confronted by the word ZULICK, until it threatens to become a nightmare. It is assorted that several of our esteemed contemporaries have telegraphed for an extra supply of capital Z's. Whilst our citizens complain of quiet times, visitors from other towns in the Territory, which profess to be doing well, draw very favorable comparisons in speaking of our city. Tombstone, when it is dull, compares favorably with any other town in the Territory that is bcom- The Prescott Couries suggests the idea of giving the Apache squaw to Clum. The board of supervisors have taken the matter under advisement It is a debata ble question with the board whsther to pay Clum $3 per day for interpreter, or turn him over the dusky dame as his share in the plunder. The Epitaph concurs in the suggestion of the Courier. THE course taken by the leng-looked for Quijotoa boom appears to be rather erratic. The Pte l;ss Company has del cided to run a tunnel of 2,000 feet clear through the mountain at the base. This will occupy over a year and should show them what they have or haven't got, whilst it will incidentally afford an exel lent excuse for levying a few more as sessments. One of 35 cents has just been levied on Peerless, which stock has fallen to 30 cents. It is difficult to see how the Quijotoa miners, who have struck against a re duction of their wages from $4 to S3 a day, canaxpect to gain anything by their action. Past experience shows that, in such cases, the mining corporations in variably come out of the struggle victo rious. Then, again, there ar very many idle men at present in this territory, who are not only wiiling, but anxious, to ac cept work at the lower price. Which ever way one's sympathies may incline, it will not do, in such cases, to overlook obvious facts. That was an unfortunate circumstance the overlooking by our City Council of the bonded indebtedness of this city. The law on the matter is both manda tory and plain, and why its provisions should have been overlooked or disre garded is beyond our comprehension. That our City Council is composed of men that have the best interests of our city at heart, there can be no question. Some of them are shrewd business men also, and such an oversight on their part seems almost incredible. But at the meeting to-day we trust satisfactory ar rangements will be entered into which will make ample provisions for tht pay ment of this just indebtedness. An agreed case was submitted by the the board of supervisors and A. J. Me haw, James Coyle, Ben James and Ben r.ie Hyde to Judge Street yesterday. The question submitted was: is a constable entitled to $3 per day for an attendance on court. The District Attorney object ed to the payment of the same and the question was finally submitted to the county judge for his decision. The court, after hearing argumeat from Messrs. Goodrich and Smith for the con stables, and W. H. Savage for the coun ty, very justly rendered judgment in fa vor of the officers, taking a very com mon sense view of a very ambiguous statute. How a county could expect an officer to dance attendance to a court during a lung and tedious examination for the 1 altry sum of $3, is beyond our compre hension. Crchise county made no mistake when t'ey asked for the appointment of Web ster Street as county judge. His wise and conservative rulings since his ap pointment to the office has demonstrated to our people his peculiar fitness for the position be occupies. LATEST BY TELEGRAPH.

(ASSOCIATED rRKHS 1H8IMTPUES.1 Closing tho Kkud Lor. San Francisco, Jan. 6. The city council to-night passed an ordinance in troduced by Supervisor Farwell, author of a work on "Chinese at Home and Abroad," making it a misdemeanor, with a heavy penalty attached, )o continue holding sand-lot meetings, which have done so much to create a false impres sion in the east by making it appear that the only persons opposed to the Chinese were sand-lotters. Crook t o. San Francisco, Jan. 6. The report telegraphed from Kansas City and which reached here at two o'clock this morn ing that General Crook would probablv be relieved of his command in Arizona, is confirmed in a special dispatch to the Chronicle, which states that Crook will probably be relieved within the next week or ten days, and that Gen, Miles will probably be appointed. It is stated that Gen. Sheridan has been trying to prevent the change, as he believes Crook has done everything human power could do to capture the renegade Apaches. He thinks no one could have done any better than Crook, and still considers that officer the leader in Indi an warfare in the United States army. But the pressure upon the President to make a change is very strong and comes both from the friends of Gen. Miles and the people of Arizona, who have lost confidence in Crook and have sent any amount of appeals to the President of both an official and private character. Bnlllvnn I no' it rate New York, Jan. 6 The World this morning says: Another leaf was added to the garland that 'adorns the brow of the Boston pugilist, Sullivan, on Sunday. He has been in this city for some time past. The scene of his last encounter was the Gilroy House. His victim was a newsboy, a mere child, sickly and in offensive. Sullivan was just leaving the Gilroy House in a drunken condition when the little newsboy ran up and said: "Paper, gentlemen," Sullivan replied: "Yes, I'll send you to hell,', and as he spoke he struck the little fellow on the mouth with the head of his umbrella. The boy fell almost senseless, his lips were horribly lacerated and three teeth were gone. Sullivan walked leisurely away. The guests in the hotel tried to induce the boy to accompany them to the police station in order to effect Sul livan's arrest, bat the child replied: "I guess not, mister. If I should and hejis arrested, he would kill me afterwards. I am glad be didn't hit me with his fist, or I wouldn't have seen my mother again." JCIopemient of Couffrcsfcinain luiiKltter. Louisville, Jan. 6. Sidney Barber and Miss Katie Woolford, daughter of Congressman Frank Woolford, were married at Jeffersonvillc, Ind., last night.

During tht holiday recess of Congress and since the delivery of his speech in favor ot silver coinage, Senator Beck has received more letters than any other member oi the Senate. Letters have come to him by hundreds daily, all of them commenting on the position he has taken and urging him to stand firm in support of the silver dollar. While the bulk of these letters have come from the South and West not a few have been sent by residents of the East. Among the tributes of commen datisn is one from theyoungest daughter of Jefferson Davis, of Mississippi. It is a neat little water-color painting, repre senting the silvery moon looking down through a sheet of silvery ciouds on a prosperous landscape. Underneath was written in Miss Davis' hand, " Diana's tribute to the champion of silver.'' Siiow-llntintl, Kansas City, Jan. 5. Overland trains are nil delated on account of snow west of here.

A young lady well known in Philadelphia- society 'circles, where ,ahe is a shining light and a general favorite, is just now suffering the punishment of her vanity in rejjard to tho oxistine feminine crazo' for dimples. In seeking to ac quire by artificial mean1; nthoso hollow wives, those round, enchanting pits," with which Naturo had not endowed her beauty, she has probablj1 become some what disfigured for life She is a charm ing blonde, and her mishap will evoke sincere regret among her large circlo of friends. About a year ago an exceeding suave young man, calling himself "Prof. King, ' arrived in Philadelphia from Boston. Ho took up his quarters in a fashionable boarding-house on Spruce street, and had his name tastefully en graved on a polished brass plato on tho door. Ho had a splendid suite of rooms. Within a few days ho sent out a number of confidential circulars among society ladies. Ho undertook to produce per fectly natural-looking dimples on any lady s checks for $10 a pair. Ho secured a largo patronago for his peculiar work. Society ladies could bo found at any period of the day in his magnificent waiting-room. The dimple factory was a success, and tho dear, delightful young man became quite as great a favorite as tho charming productions of his poculiat ait Ho was very handsome and very gentlemanly, and dressed to kill, whll ho was a captivating talker, having a rich musical baritone, over which ho had itbsoluto control. Tho foolish maiden visited him about six weeks ago. Prof. King explained to her tho process of "dimpling," and claimed that it was harmless and pain less. Whatever misgivings she .had were conquered and she submitted to tho operation. She paid the fee of $10 in advance, and was taken into an ante room and seated in a plush-colored chair resembling that of a dentist Then she was told to smile. She did so. The next moment she uttered a scream, and jumping from a chair would have fled from tho room but that the "Professor" detained her. "My dear miss," ho said, "you must not be frightened. It is merely a scarcely pcrceptiblo prick on cither cheek' Both tho girl's checks were bleeding. With a pair of forceps tho "Professor' had cut a minute portion of the skin and underlying flesh from eithor cheek at the center of tho required dimple. Tho young lady, after much persua sion, calmed herself, while the "Pro fessor" applied some balsam to tho wound to stop tho bleeding. This done, he washed away tho blootl and covered the puncturo with a small pieco of court plaster which, when ho nad finished, was invisible. This was tho preliminary treatment, and he directed the patient to call early the following day. Not withstanding application of tho healing ointment tho lady found her left cheek rather painful. Sho could not sleep that night, and tho next morning her face was considerably inflamed. She became alarmed and hurried to see Prof. King. Ho appeared somewhat discomfited when ho saw' her. After a microscopical examination of the punct uro in her left check his blnndncss re turned. "Do not bo alarmed." ho said. "I a&'suro you it is nothing. Simply when I applied the forceps you started, and the result was that the forceps cut deeper than I intended. I will treat the wound J now, and you shall be all right again." But the professor's treatment, while it hid the wound, failed to reduce tho swelling, and his reassuring suavity was insufficient to allay the young lady's distress. She hurried straight to tho family physician and stated the whole caso to him. Tho doctor removed tho court-plaster and examined tho "dimple bed." "Tho rascal has produced a dimple that will last all your life," he said, "but I don't think it is one which will enhance your smile. Tho forceps nearly pierced through the cheek. As thie flesh has been removed, a scar will re main." Tho wound has now healed, and, true to tho doctor's prediction, a disfiguring, star-liko scar remains. On tho right cheek, however, there is a beautiful dimple. The doctor endeavored by every means to avoid tho scar, but failed. Tho skin is so contracted as to remove tho scalp when tho unfortunate lady speaks. Sho has naturally been very much annoyed by tho mishap, and fears as much tho ridicule which her act may call forth as tho disfigurement 1 1 An acquaintance of Walt Whitman says: "I never knew a man to be more popular with tho ladies than the old poet, and especially with English la dies. Ho is constantly in receipt of epistles from them praising his verses. Ihe old man, by the way, while not rolling in wealth, is still coming on. quite comfortably. Ho has a steady, if small, income from his books. His receipts from England are larger than those in this country. A short timo ago ho got $1G0 for one article, in an En glish magazine. As his wants arc sim ple, it doesn't take much to satisfy him." Clerical starvation is little less than a literal fact in tho Protestant Episcopal Church, according to the assertion of tho Church Press, which argues that when a man has been duly ordained to the cure of souls ho is entitled to an ade quate support for himselfand family from the bishop by whom he has been et apart, and from tho parish in which ho toils. Tho editor tells of a clergy man who was induced to relinquish a iiiuuiuuuu jmsuion worm ?4,uuu a year, and during ten years of ministerial life has never received moro than $500 a year, and now ho has a wife and four children; yet ho is strongly indorsed by his bishop and approved by his parishes. Another caso taken as an example is that of a man earnest and devoted .to the work, a good reader nnd a fair readier. Ho has a wife and six chil ren. He is promised $500 a year, and furnishes his own house. In point of fact ho received last year less than $100 salary. Ho has had parishioners at summer resorts who have not contribut ed one dimo to their minister's sup port f Tho Silver Inlet Mine, on tht north ihoro of Lake Superior, has tU144 tT Kf4,000,OW worth ojttsjf. .J'1 NOTICE!
