Toubitons, COthlM County, Arliona CITY AvD COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER KMKHAij CBUUaX. The fact that the Apache scouts, em ployed by General Crook, are treacher ous ana oo everything in tneir power to assist the renegades is well known and j 1ms. been . commented upon time and I ajjain in the newspapers of this section. Fresh evidence ,of the truth of these as sertions is found in an interview with three prominent citizens of New Mexico, which is published in the San Francisco Call. These gentlemen, referring to the occasion of the attack on Lieutenant 3 Fountain's command, when Dr. Maddox i, and four soldiers were killed, say: When ' nearing a narrow canon on Dry Creek the scouts rode on a couple of hundred yards in advance. The scouts passed through the worst part of the canon all right, but as the soldiers entered in a volley was poured into them from both sides of the creek bed, and, becoming panic-stricken, the command dashed down the canon in confusion. Dr. Mad dox, of Fort Bayard, who was riding be side Lieutenant Fountain, was mortally wounded, and four privates were killed. As soon as the firing began, instead of turnine to aid the soldiers, the scouts threw-themselves from their saddles, and waiting by the side of the road, let the routed troops dash by them, on down the creek. From his position in the brush, Burke saw some of the scouts hold a consultation with some of the hos tiles who appeared, and also saw one scout give the ambushers a hat full of cartridges. It is, impossible that General Crook should be unaware of the damning fact of his scouts' treachery, confirmation of which occurs almost daily. Why, in the face of such indisputable evidence, he bhould continue to employ these friends and relatives of the renegades, to throw obstacles in the way of his troops and betray them to the enemy, is more than any ordinary mind can fathom. His actton in this respect alone should be sufficient to ensure his removal. Yet, in 'the face of this, the Sur gravely asserts that the Announcement of Crook's re moval has " created" both surprise and disappointment among our people'' and that Crook is just on the point of ending the campaign. He has been just.on the point of ending it for eight months, and is apparently not any nearer the result than he was last May. Our people Jare thoroughly weary of this bloody farce and hail with delight the prospect of a change of any descrip tion, feeling thoroughly assured that it cannot possibly be for the worse. If Arizona had a vote on national affairs, the Indian question would have been settled long ago. The assessment on the stock of the Peerless Mining Company has been re scinded. Now you see it, and now you don't I As will be seen in another column, the City Council has succeeded in effecting a satisfactory arrangement of the bond question. Silvir is quoted somewhat firmer on the London market. The fears of ad Terse action by Congress appear to be diminishing across the water. Some illnatured persons assert that, if the Apaches were to attack Tucson, the inhabitants of that peaceful pueblo would at once rush to the city hall and pass resolutions. The Chinese don't seem to be going, to any very alarming extent. A Chinese syndicate recently offered two million dollars for the Palace Hotel in San Fran cisco, and were prepared to pay five mil lions. - '"' PERHArS, after all, Pixley was right and the whites have no right to live in Arizona. It really begins to look that way, sometimes. The Government might, however, at least furnish us with a decent reservation somewhere. The territory has been subjected toan unusually cold spell. Tucson has had quite an ice crop; at Phoenix the ther mometer has been fifteen degrees below freezing and here at Tombstone we have had tbe coldest spell in the recollection cf the -'oldest inhabitant." The importance of the mining inter ests has hitherto so overshadowed all others, in Cochise county, that outsiders and even residents of the county are apt sometimes to forget that we have one of the finest stock-raising sections on the continent. Cochise has more than one string to her bow. TELEGRAPHIC. Bills to Provide Volun teers for Arizona. Judge Terry Marries Sarah Althea Hill-Sharon. Tho San.

Prospects of noma Bale. LeNDON, Jan. 7. Liberal opinion is still greatly divided on the home rule question. In fa7 opinion in general in England is a complete hodge-podge, which may play into the Tories' hands and possibly even comp.l Mr. Gladstone to draw in his horns. The chief Liberal press agency, which sends London cor respondence and editorial matter to the provincial Liberal press, has received re quests from many quarters to modify its direct advocacy of Gladstone's home rule scheme. It is said that the public declarations of hostility to Gladstonr's Irish Parliament scheme, coming from such tried and loyal supporters as Trc velyan and other Liberal leaders who have always hitherto proved stanch al lies, have greatly surprised Mr. Glad stone. He was prepared for the deser ion of such men as the Duke of Argyle and Goschen, who repeatedly kicked over the party traces, and even of Har rington, Harcourt, Cowper, Derby and Forster, whose interests and connections, or personal prejudices, tie them to the unpopular side. Gladstone's hold with the rank and file ot the advanced wing has not been lessened by these deflec tions, but strengthened. Pabllfl Par for Arlsona. Washington, Jan. 7. Senator Har rison has introduced a bill to set apart a certain tract of land near the junction of the Little Colorado with the Colorado rivers of the west in Arizona, as a public park. House. Washington, Jan. 7. There were 882 bills introduced in the House to-day. The Speaker did not make the announce meat of committees. It is his intention to complete the call of States before naming the committees. The call of States was not completed to-day. Two States and Territories remain to be called. The Mansers. Washington, Jan.) 7. Delegate Jo seph, of New Mexico, will introduce in the House to-morrow a bill to provide for the oiganization of a regiment of volunteers in New Mexico and Arizona' for the purpose of suppressing ontrages on settlers committed by hostile Indians. Each company shall be composed of 30 native Mexicans, 10 Americans and 10 Pueblo Indians. They shall each be furnished two native horses and armed with suitable weapons. Each private shall receive $50 per month, and the officers paid as in the regular army. The pension laws now in force shall apply to all. For the purpose of carrying this act into effect the sum of $500,000 is appro, priated, to be available immediately. nbuamltcrs ronvlcted. San Francisco; Jan. 6.

It is an nounced to-night that Miss Hill (nee Sharon) will be married at 9 o'clock to morrow morning, at Stockton, to David S. Terry, exChief Justice of the Supreme Court of California. Mervous Kelly. New York, Jan. 7. John Kelly, of New York, is troubled with insomenia and nervous prostration. He will have to quit politic;. UlarUtonu May Coine. London, Jan. 7. An effort is being made to induce Gladstone to visit the United States. He may come in the I autumn. Cruelty to Animals. ' Some people object entirely to experi ments upon animals. They do this chiefly on two grounds. Tho first is that such experiments aro iibclcss, and tho second that, even if they were use ful, we havo no right to inflict pain upon animals. Tho first objection is duo to ignorance. Almost all our exact knowl edge of tho action of drugs on tho var ious organs "of tho body, 11s well as tho physiological functions of thoso organ isms themselves, has been obtained by experiments on animals. Their second objection is ono which, if pushed to its ... . !!.!. n il nlAlllllln ni .1 .lirtfl 11. UlUlUBb MUllia UUU OICUV111V rt.n; uui, would soon drive man ofl tho faco of the earth. Tho struggle for existence is constantly going on, not only between man ana man, out Dctween man, mo Jower animals, and plants, and man's very being depends upon his success. Wo kill animals for food. Wo destroy them when they are dangerous, liko the tiger or cobra, or destructive, liko tho rat or mouse. Wo oblige them to work for us for no roward but their food, and wo urgo them on by whip and spur when they aro unwilling or flag. No ono would think of blaming tho uiesscn- ger who should apply' whip and spur to ring a reprieve, and thus savo the lifo of a human being about to dio on tho scaffold, even although his horse should dio under him at tho end of the journey. Humano peoplo will givo an extra shil ling to a cabman in order that thoy may catch tho train which will tako them to soothe tho dying moments of a friend, without regarding the conse quences to tho cab-horse. Yet if one tenth of tho suffering; which tho horse has to endure in either of tho case just mentioned wero 1o be inllicted by a physiologist in order to obtain tho knowl edge which would help to relievo tho suffering and lengthen the life, not of one human being only but of thousands, many persons would exclaim against him. Such objections as these aro duo either to want of knowledgo or want of thought on tho part of peoplo who mako them! They either do not know the benefits which medicine derives from experiment, or they thoughtlessly, (some times, perhaps, willfully, ignore the evidence regarding tho utility of experi ment Bruntoris Pharmacology. m . m Kate Vauglian's Dancing. The whole of young London is now repairing to Her Majesty's Theatre to see Miss Kate Vaughan dance in the Italian ballet, "Excelsior." What a wonderful thing is individual attraction! This self-same ballet has been running now for many months. Two Italian dancers of the first excellence have ex erted themselves with praiseworthy en thusiasm night after night, and per formed heroic iicts of endurance, but the pnblio have never shown any mark ed and strong delight in an excellent entertainment until an English artist and dancer floats on from tho wings and tantalizes her admirers with scarcely five minutes of the poetry of motion. Miss Kate Vaughan's charm is patent; it is evidcntlv irresistible; and it is a Sood sign. Taste cannot bo in a very epraved condition when with such sim plicity and so little effort tho art of danc ing in its purest rfcrm caa bo so sin cerely appreciated. Then, In one moment, sho put forth tho charm Of woven paces and of waving hands. This is tho singular art of this ex traordinary lady. She does not beat with her feet; sho floats about it Others perplex thomsolves with effort; sho glides unconsciously. With her it is not a dance, but a dream. And all London goes to sco it That ono short spell of "airy fairy" movement is worth all the superhuman effort of a Lirnido and tho wondrous gyrations of a Cec chetti excellent as they both are. What matter, however, in what form art is displayed on the stage? How infinitly preferable tho days of tho poetic Kate Vaughan to thoso of the crude caperings and caracoles of "Wiry Sal." Autres temps, autres mmurs. A Light-Giving Mexican Insect. At a recent meeting of tho Academy of Sciences at Paris a plate half filled "with water, in which wero half a dozen insects about an inch in length, which shone liko diamonds, although the room was filled with sunshine, was passed around among tho members. Theso in sects had been brought from Mexico, where they aro to bo found in tho for ests. The scientific name is tho pyro Eliore; and, as nono had ever been seen eforo in Europe, they created quite a sensation. The light resembles that of a glow-wonn or fire-fly, although as much more brilliant and intense as an electric-light surpasses a wax taper in its power of illumination. When tho light begins to fade it can bo made as brilliant as beforo by shaking tho in sect or dipping it in water. It is said tho Indians of Mexico use them for a light at night, and a few will suffice to iltuminato an cntiro room. When thoy aro walking at night they put ono on each foot so that they can be Miro of their way, and also that they do not step on any venomous snako or reptile, with which tho tropical forests abound. The Mexiean ladies buy them of tho In dians and inclose them in a transparent bag, which they wear in their hair or at tho neck. Tho effect is very beautiful, especially when several are worn; and, as tho Indians sell them for a few cents a dozen, thoy aro within tho reach of overy fair one. Thoy arc fed on sugar cane, and if well taken caro of will live a long time! Ono placed upon a page will enablo it to bo read with case in the darkest night Scientific American. Among tho young men of title and fortune who may bo said to bo coming on for tho next London season is Sir Henry Alfred Doughty Tichborne, who will in May next bo of age. Tho youth ful Baronet is now in Ida 20th year, having been born in May, 1806. Tho necessity of defending his property against tho celebrated Tichborno Claim ant has entailed upon his trustees tho enormous expenditure of 120,000. His estates aro in Hampshire, Lincolnshire, Dorsetshire, and Buckinghamshire, and represent between 11,000 and 12,000 acres. Thcro aro in addition, London properties, bringing up tho gross rent roll to 28,000 ayear. NOTICE!
