Meade is rusticating in the genial clime of Tucson. Old England gazes in astonishment at the blooming of the Shamrock. P.irnell bids fair to "scoop" the entire iarlUm"cntary pot. lhe Tucson Times has suspended publication. It was one of the best journals in Arizona, and we are sorry for its untimely demise. Nogales is coining to the front as one of the leading towns of Arizona. It has the best wishes of the EPITAPH for future success. Notwithstanding the cold wave which lias recently visited Arizona, Clark Churchill glides smoothly along. Clark reminds us of the first issue of a news paper. It has cdways "come to stay." Mr. J. V. Vickers will be telegraphic correspondent of the Epitaph in Denver during the stock convention, and will keep our stock and business men posted as to the workings of that body. Governor Zulick went and knocked our calculations higher than a smoke stact in his appointments of prison com mlsioners. The only wajKr us to get even with the wretch is to issue a pro clamation. Judge Benson an old Arizonaian will and favorably known to the people of Tombstone is visiting this city. The judge has several promising mining pro perties in this district which he will pro ceed at once to develop. The EPITAPH welcomes our old friend Benson back to our city. The Shamrock of Old Erin will bloom and thrive under the benign influence of the gallant Parnell. The British Lion is already paralyzed with astonishment at its munificient splendor, Home Rule, the dream of Old Ireland and the hope of her sons, the day star, the watchword, the beacon light, the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night, which will lead to a peaceful victory for the down-trodden sons of Erin. Mr. J. V. Vickers will take his depar ture for Denver, Colorado, to-day. He will represent both the Tombstone and Willcox stock associations. Mr. Vickers will do credit to the cattle and range in terests of this territory, in which he takes such an active interest. He is interested in one of the largest cattle companies in Arizona territory, and consequently will make a fit representative of this great and growing industry. The EPITAPH wishes Mr. Vickers success in his mis sion. J. G. Albright Editor of the Albuquer que Democrat was arrested for an as sault with an intent to kill, committed upon the person of E. H. Dunbar Editor of the evening News of that tity. The club is the argument of a coward and none but such resort to this despicable method. The EPITAPH trusts that this fellow, who so wantonly assaulted Mr. Dunbar will meet his just reward at the hands of the law. The evening News is a live energetic newspaper and is well patronized by the people of Albuquerque who wc trust will frown down upon this blackguard method adopted by this man TELEGRAPHIC. Admission of Dakota Dis cussed. . Colorado Journalists in Con vention. Senator Frye Denounces the Clayton-Bulwcr Treaty. The Calnare Committee at Work Mod Other Interesting- New. fAMOClATSD rKKSS DI8PATCHKS Without Foundation. Wilkesbarre, . Pa., Jan. 20. The si tuation here as regards the imprisoned miners is practically the same. The re oort sent out from here this morning that one of the working gang had seen signs of life and a light through a cranny into the air chamber where the bodies are supposed to be, has proved to be an idle rumor without the least foundation. Congressional Brevities. Washingtok, Jan. 20. In spite of a number of speeches the calendar re mains unchanged. Action was suspend ed on the bill regulating the electoral count. The bill for the admission ol Daktta will be thoroughly discussed at an early hour. The committee on inter state railroads will report to-morrow and .1 bill will be introduced to restrict the actual building of any roads by any state. The railroad side of the question will be ably represented. ' The Coinage Committee. Washington, Jan. 19. Speaker Car lisle carries hjs democracy into the con test. There is a vast difference of opi nion upon the status of the committee on coinage. There are many new members on this committee whose views upon the question of silver coinage arc unknown. Every point has been made by Carlisle to make his party popular by his actions upon the silver question. It is evident however that the silver men are slightly in the majority, and are jubilant in con sequence. ttesolutlou Adopted. Denver, Jan. 20. To-day the Colo rado press association which has been in session here for two days, adopted the following resolution: Resolved, By the Colorado State Press association, that we emphatically enter our protest against any effort by whom soever made, to suspend the coinage of the standard silver dollar, and that our thanks are tendered to Hon. James Beck and other members of congress for their able defense of silver, and that we pledge our support to any measure looking to free and unlimited coinage of silver on an equality with gold. Silver Coinage .vet not llepcaled. Washington, Ian. 20. Ex-Congressman Belford, of Colorado, said to-day: "The symptoms that preceded the French revolution are to be seen now, and with in five years you'll see the greatest revo lution that ever occurred in the world. Why, this man up here is running the government in the interest of the natio nal banks. Andrew Jackson took them by the throat and said: ''Here, give the people a chance!" Why, there isn't any more comparison to be made between this man and Jackson than there is be tween a tallow dip and the brilliance of the sun. This goveenment had better keep up its currency or there will be a terrible revolution. I am convinced from what I have learned to-day that the sil ver coinage act will not be repealed." The Maine Nenator Mneuks. Washington, Jan. 20. In speaking of the Canadian fish treaty, Mr. Frye said that no American fisherman had asked or proposed such an arragement. That had been left for the British minis ter to do. For one hundred years Great Britain had been "protecting" the inter ests of American fisherman. Mr. Frye characterized the "arrangement" referred to as the "most marvelous piece of diplo macy" that our history could show. Our fishermen, he said, do not ask our minis- to interfere to protect them, but they o asK that tne united states of merica shall be self assertive, and that all they do. Our fishermen ask that is great republic of fifty-six millions of iple shall protect her fishermen .in leir rights. lhey demand that istead of yielding to Great Britain, as been done every time, we shall stand iy our rights. The fishermen, he said, :new to well as he knew, that Great ritain dare not undertake to defend the iourse of the Canadians in taking eighty nurd States vessels into colonial ports nd trying and condemning them on the ividence of colonial witnesses, who stood m the shore and looked out to sea and uessed that the vessels were within hree milee. Let the United States do hat they were able to do, and not be ightened to death by the ghost of dead reaties. Our executive oflicers were rembling at the ghost of the Clayton- ulver treaty, which Great Britain had igarded dead for a quarter ot a century. Hot Water For All. A well-known engineer of this city has dovised a plan for mitigating tho severity of winter and spring in tho North At lantic States and warming tho bluo noses of our friends in Nova Scotia. Tho great warm current called tho Gulf Stream surges by us on its northeasterly course, but it is commonly believed that tho British isles and southwestern Eu ropo get tho benefit of it With this stream almost within our reach wo shiver and freezo through tho winter months mid that horriblo season called Bnring, becauso a river of ico water from tho glaciers of tho pole pushes it away from our coast Mr. Goodrige, tho philanthropic engineer to whom wo re fer, proposes to dam this polar river in tho strait of Hollo Islo and turn its waters eastward into tho wide Atlantic. This strait, which separates Newfound land from Labrador, is at ono point only ten miles wide and 150 feet deep. There ho would invest 840,000,000 in a dam. He suggests that tho interposition of this obstacle would raise the temperature of tho coast from Newfoundland to Capo Hatteras. Invalids could pass their winters at Capo Cod or on Block Island, tho St. Lawrence Gulf and river would becomo navigable throughout tho year, and the Nowports of tho future would lio on tho shores of Novu Scotia. Giving free rein to his imagination, ho sees tho deflected polar current striking tho Gulf stream oft tho banks of Newfoundland, bending it southward, and compelling it to waste its warmth upon tho shores of Africa, while tho perishing Britons fly to their Indian empire to save their lives. That thoro is a Gulf stream has been demonstrated to tho satisfaction of all reasonablo men. Moreover, wo know that thero is a polar current pouring down from tho north along tho coast of Labrador and following tho shore-line as far south as Sandy Hook. But while this current hugs tho coast not all of its waters pass through tho narrow strait which Mr. Goodngo proposes to dam. On tho contrary, tlieie is reason to beliovo that these waters for the most part pass outward aiound tho eastern shore of Newfoundland. Tho dam would bo a source of great comfort to tho people who inhabit tho shores of tho St Lawrenco Gulf, but New England and New York would still bo in tho cod.-rNcw York Times. m m Sirs. Ilulscamp. Tho New York To-day says: "Con versing with a lady of my acquaintance recently, tho daughter of Signor Moro sini, shed a curious and melancholy light upon tho domestic lifo from which she found refugo in tho romantic fashion already fully described by tho press. Sho said: 'Imagine tho lifo wo led up thero and in tho city and I do not think you will blame me for what I did. Wo had a beautiful home, and were entirely shut out from the world by its walls. Wo enjoyed every luxury possible, but had to enjoy them all alone. Wo met at breakfast, and papa read his papers and then went to tho city and left us to ourselves. Wo met at lunch. In tho afternoon papa camo homo and read his papers. Then wc met at dinner, and after amusing ourselves as best we could for tho evening we wont to bed. This was our lifo day after day tho year round. Wo had few visitors and were not permitted to visit When wo at tended tho opera wo sat upright in a box, looking neither to light nor left, and wcro hurried there and hurried homo again as if there was a pestilence m tho streets. Wo had no gentlemen friends, nud wcro permitted nono of tho most innocent intercourse with tho few gentlemen who visited us. It was liko living in a jail or a nunnery, with no ono to talk to, no ono to talk to you a perfect machine of a life that always went tho same way. Papa was kind, but so stern in his ideas that ho seemed to regard it as a crimo for us to think or act for ourselves in tho most trifling things. It was as melancholy as a con stant funeral.' " ' How a Chinaman Gets into Business. Wong Chin Foo. tho Chinese ex- Iournalist, tells how his countrymen get nto business in America. Ho says: "Ono of my race arrives hore with no money and in debt to his friends or to bankers for tho steamer and railroad faro. Ho generally cng.iges himself as a greenhorn or appicntice to somo suc cessful laundrynian. Although the compensation is small ($i or $5 per wcok and board), for tho hW months or ono year of his contract, ho learns the business, pays off his debts, and gains a good name for integrity .mil capabil ity. At tho end of hr ti-rni, if ho is a skillet' workman, he can i-ithor secure first-tniss wages (18 per week), or open a laundry of his own. Tno latter is his usual course. Ho may see, for example, a laundry for alo" for $600, whoso looks and location ho likes, and he himself has but $50 to his name. He foes to Mott street and there on the ulletin boards puts up a notice call ing for a 'whey,' or syudicato of twelve men with $50 each to meet him at a certain time nnd plaeo. The meeting Is had, and if ho bo regarded as honest and capable the requisite $5.'0 is given to him, he in return acknowledging tho indebtedness, and promising to pay a certain interest on the money ad vanced (generally 20 per cent per an num). This money is paid back in monthly installments, so that at the end of a year the borrower is free from debt, his credit unimpaired and the laundry absolutely his own." Fr.gnacious Polk. After Polk got on the Memphk trail a reporter of the Little Rock Gaxettt sought to intcrviow him, asking if h had any word to send tho Nashvill papers?" "No, nothing," was the answer. "Do you wish to say anything about your condition?" asked the reporter. "No, I am well and hearty." The leporter assuied him ho hoped ho woulu reach Nashvillo safely, and Polk replied: "Thank God I am alive now, after whatlhave passed through." "And have you no word to send to Nashville?" again asked tho reporter "Not a thing." Tho leporter told him he wanted, to treat him nicely, when Polk retorted, "You !!. or i'U knock your head C" 1843.
