Congress will stand by the dollar of
our Daddies and silver will become the
circulating medium of the world.
There will never be permanent. peace
in Arizona as long as the military have
control at San Carlos.
THE method adopted by the govern
ment for the sub ection of the Indians is
a disgrace to a civilized nation.
A Tucson paper informs us that "the
initial step toward the construction of the
Tucson and Calabasas railroad was
taken on Monday." We thought the
"initial step" in this enterprise was taken
more than six months ago.
Governor Znlick is likely to be called
nn for sohie more "explanations" in re
gard to the affairs of the New Jersey and
Sonora Mining Company, some particu
lars in regard to which donbtful enter
prise were given some days ago, in the
telegraphic columns of the EPITAPH.
The Committee on Postofficcs has re
ported favorably the bill to prohibit the
mailing of newspapers and other publi
cations, containing lottery advertisements.
Should this bill pass, it will put the fin
ishing touch on the operations of these
swindling enterprisee.
Gen. Crook's system of tagging the
Indians is too ridiculous to mention, it
i said that one Indian frequently re-
nrrvntt from five tO twenty of his
brethren by bringing in their "tag.'
When once Crook get a fixed idea in his
cranium, nothing can remove it.
Cities and towns at a distance are
always reported to be in a flourishing
conditioni but parties leaving this nick-of-woods
invariably return satisfied with
its surroundines and condition. Tomb
stone to-day is the best business city i.f
its sue to be found on the Pacihc coast.
Croakers and growlers to the contrary.
The Star says that General Crook is
the only soldier who can settle the Indian
business. The majority of Ariionans
think that eight months is a pretty good
time for one-third of the army ol the
Untied States to get away with seventy
Apaches. So far there is not an authentic
report of a single male Indian having
been killed or captured.
An excursion party is in the Salt River
valley investigating the agricultural re
sources of that section. Were it not for
the present Apache outbreak, Arizona
would now be experiencing an imimgra
tion boom. Outsiders are beginning to
discover that they can get land here,
equal to anything in Southern California,
at one-tenth of the price. Let the Indian
question once be settled and the Terri
tory will take a start which will astonish
the most fervent believers in her wonder
ful resources.
The publisher of the Lone Star at El
Paso says that he will suspend publica
tion. He says El Paso is oyer-crowded
with newspapers and intimates that other
suspensions will follow. El Paso, like
San Diego, is a town that has too heavily
discounted its future. It has been a large
city on paper for many years but the ex
pectations ot its enterprising citizens
have not yet been realized. It will doubt
less become an important place in course
of time. At present, howevei, there
seems to be ample population there for
the work that is to be performed.
One difficulty in obtaining a speedy
and effectual settlement of the Indian
troubles is the lack of unanimity of
opinion among our people as to the best
means to be adopted to achieve the de
sired end. A majority of the papjrs pub
lished in the Territory, reflecting the
opinions of the inhabitants of the sec
tions where they are published, demand
the abolition of the San Carlos reserva
tion and the removal of the Indians from
the Territory. The nearer one gets to
the reservation, however, the less popu
lar is this proposal, and it will be found
that a number of large stockmen and
others even those who have suffered
losses by the outbreak are entirely op
posed to such a step. It would conflict
too seriously with theirfinancial interest.
When, in addition to this, it is considered
that there are always a number of inter
ested parlies at Washington, who strive
to create the impression that the Indians
ar martyrs, suffering from white perse
cution, it is not all marvelous that the
Government finds it somewhat difficult to
comprehend the true condition of affairs'.
Crook's Removal Not
Yet Confirmed.
Senator Pugh's Speech on the
Silver Question.

neso in California,

Tucson, Jan. 12. (Special). Thus far
there has been no positive confirmation
of General Crook's removal, though there
seems to be little doubt that Gerieral
Miles is the "coming man."
A Chinaman x- atarallaod.
Portland, Or., Jan. 12. Naturaliza
tion papers were issued tfO-dy to Jim
Westfall, the Chinese contractor on the
Oregon Pacific railroad. This is the
first Chinaman ever naturalized in Ore
gon, and it is stated to be contrary to
A HtrliiKcut Ordinance.
Sacramen'IO, Jan. 12. An ordinance
was submiuedto the city trustees to-day
by the anti-Chinese association which,
if passed, will make it an offense for any
Chinaman to reside 1:1 Sacramento. It
was laid over for one ueek.
FUltll ou J.lvir.
Washington, Jan. 12. Pugh called
up Heck's resolution and addressed the
Senate: "Congress was confronted, he
said, with an official announcement that
our business relations had reached a
crisis in which we must suspend the
coinage ot silver if we would secure an
internationaf ratio between gold and sil
ver. The real point involved,' Pugh be
lieved, to be not the suspension, but the
total stoppage of silver coin, and if sil
ver coinage were suspended now it
would be a blow that would directly and
speedily result in an organized conspira
cy of capitalists to secure absolute con
trol of all our currency and their regula
tion of the volume and consequent pur
chasing power. Pugh believed that he
spoke for the southern people when he
said that three-fourths of them would to
day if the opportunity were given vote
against the proposition to suspend sil
ver coinage. Petitions that came to con
gress favoring suspensions were alt on
printed blanks and signed mainly by
bankers. Pugh criticises the arguments
of the secretary of the treasury and of
the president. He enquired whether we
were to take the dictum of the president
on this matter and insisted that the ex
ecutive officers were under obligation to
enforce the laws of congress. Why had
those laws been hourly violated? Had
congress abdicated its powers to the ex
cutive department of the government?
The natioaal banks who were fiscal
agents of the government should not,
Pugh thought, have been allowed to be
come members of a clearing home that
discredited the siiver certificates of the
government. The national banks had
evaded the law of congress by agreeing
that they would not offer silver certifi
cates to the clearing house and therefore
none had actually been refused by the
clearing house. A New York newspaper,
he said, had squarely identified the rea
son why silver was opposed by the na
tional banks, it was because silver was
the only medium of our currency which
they could not control. Stop the coin
age of silver, said Pugh, and those banks
will become absolute monarchs of all
the money. Moth metals Pngh insisted
were necessary in order 10 counteract
the constant tendency of money to con
tract under the vast increase of the
values of the world.
Chine Help IMschargrd.
Sacramento, Cal., Jar. 11. All the
Chinese help at the Pioneer, Sacramenlo
and Phoenix flour mills, Capital Woolen
mills, and the American Laundry have
been discharged, which secures work for
300 unemployed men. Local boycotting
is carried on to such an extent that the
Chinamen are unable to secure employ
ment and are emigrating to other lo
calities. Business for the Chinese laun
dries and hucksters is dwindling away to
The Hand Lot Meetings.
San Francisco, Jan. 12. The ordin
ance introduced in the City Council Mon
day last, by Suporvisor Farwell, prohib
iting "sand lot meetings," came up for
final action and was defeated by a vote
of 8 to 4, on the ground that it was in
contravention to the Constitution of the
United States to trench on the rights of
free speech.

Judging from a paragraph now going

Near Odessa two Greek merchants by
mistake purchased the same lot in a

understood that neither would tako an
unfair advantage of the other by com
mitting suicide.

Tho ministers, it seems, trouble tho

that one night there sho plavcd Kicua in

a wholo evening of tuneful Weber was
not enough for tho Dublinites. In tho
middle of the opera tho cantatrico had
to sing a few verses written to the tuno
of "St. Patrick's Day" by a local poet.
This performance aroused tho enthusi
asm and flattered the vanity of tho audi
ence. and "Tho Last Rose of Summer"
was demanded. Already overtaxed, sho
bowed and bowed again and shook her
head. But tho gods wcro inexorable.
She was forced to comply. At tho end of
of tho opera, sho was dragged, as usual, by
a great crowd, as Mary Anderson was, to
tho Shelbourno Hotel. When sho appear
ed at tho window to bow her thanks,
shouts came from hundreds of voices of
"Tho Last Rose." "Gentlemen, I am
extremely obliged, but I am too tired to
sing," spoko tho exhausted diva. But
all In vain. Her gallant Irish admirers
remained shouting "Roso" until a depu
tation of would-be sleepers from tho
hotel begged her to sing the air for tho
sake of quiet, and sho had to comply.
