XMJLY EPITAPH; TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA. SUNDAY. JANUARY 10, 1880.
Daily Tombstone Epitaph and Cooiiub County Hkcobd. aoucKimoN ratci: Bally (Delivered by carrier, ) tt oenta V w Dull onojear, .K ally, lx month J illy, threa months, 3-W Entered la tha Tombstone Poitofflos M inetnd e!a4 Hatter J. O. UUNHA.lt, Editor Jt Prop. Fremont Mtroet, Oppoalte City limit. Txnbitoae, Roohlu Couotv, Arfaona CITY A 40 COIHTY OFFICIAL PAPER The Star estimates the number of persons killed tn Arizona by the Apaches up to the present time at 819. George H. Stevens has been telling in Tucson what he knows about the Apaches, and comes to the conclusion that Crook is right in saying that all these depredations have been committed by ten hostiles. They must make then. selves very numerous, to judge from the way they move around. Stevens tells a falsehood, and he knows it! THE rivalry between the Southern Pa cific sind Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fc railroads has come to an end by a compromise, whereby the latter road has obtained joint control of the Southern Pacific ro id from San Francisco to Col ton, on condition that it pays 35 per cent, of the cost of maintenance, receiv ing a like share of the earnings of the Southern Pacific road. Clark Churchill still retains a firm gripupon the emoluments of the Attorney-General's office, despite the wither ing sarcasm of the territorial press of both political parties. Notwithstanding jhe embarrassment accompanying the transaction, we would advise Mr. Churchill to loosen his grip upon the loaves and fihes. , There has been a coi.stant cry for re lief from the disorderand distress caused by trouble with the Apaches, and the punling question is daily asked: "What can wc do?" Something can be done now, and everything depends upon the activity and interest emnced by our citizens generally, as to whether or not ex-Agent Clum shall be returned to the important duty ef managing the Apaches. The Epitaph has always favored civil control on the reservation, and with an active and experienced agent like Mr. Clum in charge at San Carlos, who thoroughly understands the Indians and the situation, and who we know will earnestly co-operate with the Governor, rangers, sheriffs, etc., we would have the management of the Apaches completely within our own power and permanent peace would be assured. The correspondence between Mr. J. P. Clum and a number of prominent citizens oi Cochise county of both po litical parties, is only an introduction to the measures that will be taken to se cure the reappointment .of Mr. Clum s Asertrat-San-Carlosr Ptlitions will be forwarded and gentlemen who are inter ested in an honest and efficient adminis tration of affairs in connection with the Apaches will exert every influence possi ble to insure the success of the measure. County Assessor VV. .R. Burk yes terday received the appointment f Reg istration Officer from the Board of Su pervisors. Mr. Burk is a genial whole souled gentleman, and duiing his brig residence in Cochise county has made and retained many firm and substantial friends. The Epitaph commends the action of the Board in making this ap pointment. We trust that our friend from Old Erin will wear his new honors with the same modest demeanor which has characterized hts past official life. The Nogalei Frontier, in writing of the Stars apologetic article on General Crook, says: "If the Star repre sents the sentiments of the people of Tucson (and it certainly .does not represent those of the people any other where), the long-suff ring settlers of this Territory will soon come to regard that place as on a par with the hellish hatch ery known as the San Carlos reserva tion." Had the editor of the Frontier lesided a little longer in Arizona, he would know that the editor of the Star expresses nobody's opinions, on any sub ject, except his own. THE complaints of bondholders that they are being ill-treated by the Govern ment, in having to accept payment in silver, will not stand investigation. Many of these men bought their bonds with greenbacks when the latter were at more than 50 per cer.t discount. The bonds were then payable in greenbacks. They afterwards succeeded in having them made payable 111 coin. Now they want payments to be made in gold. What de mand these leeches will next make, it is not easy to say, but it is sincerely to be Imped that the friends ef the people at Washington will be able to defeat the at tempt of capitalists to ensla e the wage woks. TELEGRAPHIC. Eastern Sentiment on Silver Changing. Great Interest in Evarts' Forthcoming, Speech. Bean Asks for the Zulick-Laniar Correspondence, Terribly Cl Weatker PrcYMltluK Thraaxkomt the Kilt, MMOC1ATID rKESS UISPATOHK8.1 Ml-ver am Top. Washington, Jan 9. Conkling is strongly in favor of silver coinage. Sen ator Evarts also stands firm on the same side. There is consternation in the camp of the gold bugs, and public senti ment in the ast is undergoing a radi cal change on the question. The silver people have prepared petitions to Con gress which they are scattering broad cast over the country for signature;, praying for Congress to place coinage of silver on an equality with gold; that there be issued coin certificates of one, two and five dollais; that the same be made legal tender: that one and two dol lar legal notes be i 'led, and that the public debt be paid as quickly as possi ble by applying for this purpose the idle surplus now in the treasury. These pe titions are coming back in large num ' bers and are being presented in the Senate and the House. A Co-operative l.nundrr. San Jos.e, Jan. 9 In consequence of (losing the Chinese laundries in this city yesterday, the anti-coolie league has adopted a plan for a co-operative laun dry.. It is proposed to start with 300 subscribers at $5 each, they to have the privilege of having their washing done at actual cost, which is estimated to be about $1 per week for the average fam ily washing. Cold weather. Des Moines, Ia., Jan. 9. All through trains west of here aie blockaded and branch roads are snowed under. The thermometer at Omaha registers 20 de grees .below zero. In Dakota, 20 to 40 degrees below zero. Telegraph poles and wires are blown down in all direc tions. iluad for , Washington, Jan. 9. Symes, of Colorado, has introduced a bill for the unlimited coinage of silver. KthU im cieveUad. Washington, Jan. 9. Persons on the inside say that Senator Evarts' speech will strike consternation in the hearts of . President Cleveland and his colleagues, and that it will be the most brilliant effort of his life; ht will undertake to demonstrate the fact that the President and his Cabinet, in pursuing the course marked out by them, are liable to im peachment by the House f Represen tatives. Evarts is an aspirant for the Presidency, and it now seems probable that after the speech he will be the most prominent candidate for that position while the excitement lasts. Great inter est is aroused in the "coming effort to be made by the New York Senator, and the crowd which will be in attendance is ex pected to be very great. Aside from Jg ing one ol the finest orators of the day, Evarts is one of the best informed mem bers of the Senate, and his speech will undoubtedly be worthy of that body. Irlah Affairs. London, Jan. 9. It is learned, on trustworthy authority, that Lord Ran dolph Churchill's scheme for Irish home rule does not include a Parliament for Ireland, but proposes to abolish the vice royalty and the whole system of rastle government, substituting therefor a com plete set of administrative officers, to be eiected by the people, and to hold office during fixedjferms. It also proposes a loan of 1,000,000 on the easiest possi ble terms as to interest and payment, to defray the cost of certain needed public works in Ireland. This and other schemes of modified home rule will be discussed at special council. Naw Wenhail Mee. Washington, Jan. 9. Delegate Bean has introduced a resolution calling on the Secretary of the Interior for copies" of the correspondence between his de partment and the Governor of Arizona, on Indian matters. Another Caauatttaa. Washington, Jan. 9. A resolution has been introduced by Joseph, of New Mexico, for the appointment of a com mittee of three members, to investigate the conduct of the campaign against the hostile Apaches in Arizona and New Mexico, conducted by General Crook. How She Fixed It. Tho throo of 113 had been tramping over tho battlefield of Malvern Hill all day long, and us night came on there was every ovidenco of a steady, soaking rain-storm. Wo had to get shelter right away, and wo found it in a farm-houso owned by a widow. Sho was willing enough to furnish us supper, but when It camo to lodgings' sho seemed greatly embarrassed. "You see," she said, "my house Is very small. Indeed, 1 have only this room, with a bedroom off." "But can't wo sleep In tho barn?" said tho Colonel. "I have no barn." "But you can go to bed and let us sleep on tho floor in this room, can't you?" "Y-o-s, butr-but " "Oh, you needn't have any fear of us, . madam,".protchtcd the Colonel. "It isn't that, sir, but" She blushed like a rose, but none of us could understand until she said: "Well, to tell the truth, my beau will be here to-night" "In this storm?" "O, yes. William would come if It rained pitchforks." "Well, we won't hurt William." "No, sir, but we that is, ha will ex pect to spark me, and and " "Exactly," said tho Colonel. "I see the situation. You don't want to disap point William?" "No, sir; and I don't want to turn you -gentlemen out either. You see, sir, it's probably my only chanco to get married and it won't do to offend William. This is his sparking night and he's got to como five miles." "Well, wo won't stand in his way; we will hunt some other place," "No, sir, you shall stay; but you seo how it is. I think I can fix it I'll take this room and you three can havo the bedroom." "What! Deprive you of sleep?" "Oh, no, sir. William and I always spark till daylight If you would only fix it that way. sir." Wo did. After supper we locked our selves into tho bedroom, and taking the pillows from tho bed laid down on the floor and slept like bricks until call ed to breakfast When wo went out tho Colonel asked: "Well, did William show up?" "Y-yes, sir," she stammered, "and he askdd mo to m-marry him! If wo hadn't fixed things maybe he'd havo waited a whole year longer. B-breakfast is ready and I'll never forget your kindness to a poor widow!" Detroit Free Press. m t m Mark Twain s Difficulties in Becom ing a Confederate. In his paper in tho December Century, "The Private History ci a Campaign that Failed," Mark Twain says: "Out West there was a good deal of confusion in men's minds during tho first months of tho great trouble a good doal of unscttledness, of leaning first this way, then that, then the other way. It was hard for us to get our bearings. I call to mind an instance of this. I was piloting on tho Mississippi when tho news came that South Carolina had gone out of the Union on the, 20th of December, I860. My pilot-nlato was l Mew Yorker. Ho was strong for tho Union; so was I. But ho would not. lis ten to mo with any patience; my loyalty was smirched, to his eye, because my father had owned slaves. I said, in palliation of this dark fact, that I had heard my father say, some years before he died, that slavery was a great wrong, and that he would freo tho solitary negro ho then owned if he could think ft right to give away the property of tho family when ho was so straightened in means. My mate retorted that a mere Impulso was nothing anybody could pretend to a good impulse; and went on decrying my Unionism and libeling my ancestry. A month later tho secession atmosphere hod considerably thickened on the Lower Mississippi, and I became a rebel; so did he. We wcro together in New Orleans, tho 26th of January, wheaLouis iana went out of the Union. He did bis full share of tho rebel Shouting, but was bitterly opposed to letting me do mine. He said that I camo of bad stock of a father who had been willing to set slaves free. In the following summer ho was piloting a Federal gun-boat and shouting for the Union again, and I was in tho Confederate nrmy. I held his note for some borrowed money. Ho was one of the most upright men I ever knew; but he repudiated that note with out hesitation, because I was a rebel, and the son of a man who owned slaves." a i Cleverness In Girls. I should say, observes a writor in All the Year Bound, that to young girls gen erallyto clever young girls certainly cleverness seems to bo an unmixed ad vantage. How delightful to a clever girl of 15 or 16, who then perhaps enters upon regular school work for tho first time how delightful it is for her to find herself at the gates of a new world of thought, to feel the thrill of proud exultation which runs through her as sho gazes at it, and exclaims with pardonable enthusiasm, "I can, at least, oe monarch of all I survey!" How pleasant to seo tho gratification with which her masters gradually discover that one eager mind is drinking in all they say, and 'what troublo they will take to answer and even to anticipate her difllculties! How pleasant, again albeit somewhat dangerous to receive tho respect and admiration which her schoolfellows will lavish upon her, so long, at least, as sho is sweet-tempered as well as clever to respond to tho many demands made upon her for "Just one thought dear, to put into my all tho dictionary says, but that only tills up half my paper!'' to hear the in variable, "0, Ida will tell you that sho knows everything!" And then at the prize giving, how stimulating is the sense, not only that sho is tho observed of all observers, but that sho is receiving the reward of work well and earnestly dono as sho bears away prize after prize only tempered by tho regretful wish that poor Melissa, who is so sweet, but any thing rather than clover and other kindred spirits could havo had some thing mora to rejoice In than tho suc cess oi their friend! 1$43.

NOTICE! to (tie occupant uri.otx on the -'Way 1 , L VK Miul"K ,a,.m nrtee. 1 have heretofore notified you that I -.... imi.b-1111113 m me suiiacc ground 01 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 mentson 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 A'der 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 on or 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. Iames Reilly.
