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
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.

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.

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."

Washington, Jan. 5. 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 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
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
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
"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

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
