Our evening contemp should be more amicable. He is evidently "riled." Keep up your courage friend Nash, greater follies than yourself have busted. Witness the Quijotoa bubble. The last straw broke the back of the camel idul let the stench escape from the wind Dag. The Tucson, Times still survives as a weekly. Better a half a loaf than no bread at all. The bookiof the school trustees were turned over to that body esterday, of the methods employed we know not. Louis Rickabaugh, an old Tombstoner, arrived in this qity last evening, accom panied by several strange sports. We commend to the reading public our interesting Tucson letter. Our correspondent at that place is reliable and familiar with the subiect upon which lis treats. The telegraph wires are down, not only between Yuma and Los Angeles, called the southern route, but between Ogden and San Francisco,' the central route, where it is reported some thirty poles are down on the Sierras. This destruc tion will, however, be promptly replaced, and either the southern or central tele graphic routes will be in working order with little delay. As already stated serious railroad washouts have been sus tained, but large forces ol repairers will soon make whole these breaks. Some envous scoundrel has circulated the report that the Critic had removed to Quijotoa to grow up with the surround ings, this vile slander we hasten to re fute. The Critic has ceased its joyous sounds for a time only. It will come forth from its hiding place fresh from its peaceful slumbers and in tones of thunder demand .immediate and com plete retraction. Then with a cowhide staring us in the. face they will maka ample apoligy and wish our genial neighbor success. Senator Teller, of Colorado, in his masterly speech in the U. S. Senate, up on the silver question, laid bare to the public gaze the sophestres and methods adopted by the present administration to further the interests of the New York bankers and bondholders. The charge is openly made and substantiated, that Secretary Manning is using his great office as a lever solely in the interests of the capitalists. A few more speeches like Senators Deck and Teller's and the farce will end. Force of circumstances over which the administration has no cotifol ate working out a settlement ot this vital question. Josiah White, Hamilton Diston and Ex-Gov. Safford, will arrive in Tomb stone this evening. Mr. White has-been appointed superintendent of the Head Center and Tranquility mines, and it is expected that he will proceed at once to work those valuable properties. It is the opinion of our best mining men that the Tranquility is the very best piece of mining property in the territory. The ledge is wonderfully large and very rich, and much is expected from future de velopments of the property. Mr. White, though usually factum, is a genial, whole soled gentleman, and the Epitaph trusts that he will once more take up his abode in our midst. The school question is receiving con siderable attention from the various interested parties. This is a subject that lies near the heart of every mother in the land. It is to the loving and tender solici tude of mothers that our little ones owe success in after years. The ever watch ful care exercised first upon the child, later upon the youth and last upon the man by a tender and loving mother ap peals to the better nature of mankind. Evidently the mothers of our school children in Tombstone have taken the schosl matter in hand, and any measures tending towards its defeat will receive careful attention at their hands. The Epitaph serves notice upon the public right now that of the ladies of Tombstone are in favor of levying this tax tor school purposes they can rely upon our assistance in the matter. In explanation of the above we will say that where a public question is at issue, where the question of right or wrong is envolved it is at all times safe to side with the ladies in the case, because they are invariably right in their conclusions n such matters. TELEGRAPHIC. Senator Teller's Masterly Arraignment. Colorado's Champion of the People's Money. The Voice of the We3t Heard In Defense of Silver. Gold Fiends Doomed the Ad mtnistrntinu; Denounced. fASSOCUTKD FUBSS DISPATOIIES. A Murderer Lynched. Vincennes, Ind., Jan. 21. At mid night yesterday a well organized force of men, provided with sledge hammers and other implements, went to jail, and hav ing effected an entrance, took Epp, the murderer of Farmer Dobson, from the sheriffs hands and hanging him to a tree went quickly about their business, leaving the body hanging. Klght Wilt Triumph. Washington, Jan.. 21. After pre liminary matters were disposed of then Mr. Teller addressed the senate on the silver question. Without a sufficient amount of money with which to do husi ness, Mr. Teller said, the energies of the people were depressed. Meney scarcity meant dull times and low wages, or no wages at all. The persons who suffered least from such scarcity were the money lenders, bill discounters and pawn brokers. Those who suffered the most were the laborers. Mr. Teller presented elaborate tables show.ng the coin cir culation of the world, fiom which it ap peared that the silver circulation of. Great Britain was $2.69 per head of pop ulation; Germany $4.67 per head, the United States $4.88 per head and France $15.79 Per head. The total coinage of the world, he said, had been estimated as follows: Silver $2,776,000,000. Gold $3,392,000,000. But gold and silver had been found insufficient to carry on the business of the world, and all nations had resorted to paper currency based on these metals. The whole amount of pa per money issued had been $3,973,000,' 000, which was more than the whole amount of cither gold or silver. If then gold and silver combined had been found insufficient to carry on the world's trade, what teason was there for suppos ing that gold alone would be sufficient? When you destroy the money facilities of silver, you increase that of gold. You benefit the holders of bonds and mortga ges and government securities, because the principal and interest of these obli gations remain to be paid with but half the money in existence that existed when the debts contracted. The holders of these obligations constitute a great and powerful class, a creditor class, who wanted silver demonetized because of the consequent enormous increase in the purchasing power of gold. They had raised a cry that gold would leave the country if we did not suspend silver coinage. They had raised the same cry in 1878 against the passage of the silver coinage act. We had been told that the United States would become the reposi tory of all the silver of the world; that we would lose all our gold; would lose our national credit; and would be unable to sell our bonds. What was our finan cial condition at that time? What was it now? In 1877 our national notes were worth 97 cents. Everybody knew what they were worth to-day. The amount of gold in the United States was $193,000, 000. The amount to-day was $673 000, 000. We had been adding to our stock of gold at the rate of $60,000,000 a year. There was but one nation that had to day more gold than the United States, and that was France, which had $864, 000,000. The coinage of silver had not hurt our national banks. Mr. Teller analyzed the national bank returns in support of his assertion, and showed that the deposits of 1877 were $630,000, 000. The deposits to-day are $1,120, 000,000 nearly double that of 1877; while the savings bank deposits are now $200,000,000 more than the deposits of four years ago. How had it fared with England in these respect ? The Bank of England is fast losing its coin and bullion. In the last six months it had fost $38,000,000 of it, and in the same time had lost $480,000,000 of its depo sits. Was it not extraordinary if our financial policy was so unwise and that of England so wise, that we had accum ulated so large an amount of gold, while England was losing her gold? The whole condition of our country, he said, was an eloquent denial of the truth of the predictions and complaints of the enemies of silver. The stoppage of sil ver coinage would be equivalent to the addition of $30,000,000 to the national debt. It would add from 20 to 30 per cent, to every dollar of debt in the land, an amount almost too great for compu tation. The creditor class demanded suspension of the coinage which was practically u stoppage of it, and also that we pay in gold the $346,000,000 ol na tional bank notes and withdraw them from circulation. OLD SETH KINMAN. Tho Famous Hunter Telia Some Interest ing Stories Ills Trip to Washington. A goodly company was gathered about old Scth Kininan, tho famous California huntor, in the comfortable reading-room -of tho International hotel last ovening, says tho Alia California. Scth wits in tho best of story-telling moods, and perhaps many present en joyed tho entertainment moro than tho hero of tho moment, who, as he re called tho ancient incidents, appeared to bask in tho genial rays of the long ago, when his eye was keener, his step firmer, and his hair a littlo darker than to-day. Old Seth was born in Union county, Pennsylvania, Sept. 29, 1815, consequently ho is now1 a littlo past 70. He Is fully six feet tall. His hair is long and white, and his full beard tho same. His oyes are, however, remarkably bright, and ho is unusually active for one of his advanced years. His feat ures are those of 11 typical hunter, bronzed and wrinkled, but reflecting tho glow of health. Ho was dressed in a long buckskin sack, heavily fringed and neatly embroidered with green silk around the flowing collar and about the cuffs. Ho woro pants of the same mate rial, and his feet wero incased in moc casins. His head was covered with a high white sombrero. When Buchanan was elected presi dent Seth made up his mind to go to Washington. "You see," said he, using his index finger to emphasize his remarks, "I kinder thought, after tho long rassel I'd had on tho borders fightin' bars and Injuns, that I'd like to tako a furlough and go to Washington. Wall, I picked on tho cheer business as a purty good rackot, and at it I went. I'd done favors for Col. Buchanan, who had com mand of old Fort Humboldt in other days, and ono day I told him my scheme. He says: 'Go ahead, Seth, and I'll go to Washington and present tho cheer.' Well, to niako a long story short, wo got thar in duo time, and the day was sot for prescntin' the cheer. Wo all marched into tho east room. Thero was a big crowd of starchy-look-in' people thar, I tell you. It kinder korliumrauxed mo at fust, cause I want used to no sich.crowds as thet. But I straightenod up and waited for tho colonel to begin his little piece. Wall, after it was all over, old Buck ho got up ami shuck mo by the hand and made mo feel to hum. Bimeby all tho women crowded around me and began cuttiii' off relies in tho shape of strings from my clothes. They got 60 thick after awhilo that I had to skin out. Darned if I warn't seeiter cm I would bo if a hull pack of bais weio on to me. Tho cheer was made of buck horns. I had my old fiddle thct I made outer a mule's skull, and Buck asked mo to give him a tune, and I did. Oh, I had a good time thar. That was in '57. "When Abo Lincoln was elected I made up my mind I'd give him a cheer too. I knowed him, for he and my father fit together into tho Black Htm k war. When I started to Washington I took an Injun along to exhibit him. I givo shows on tho way. That darned Injun petered out on my hands at Oswego, N. Y. Tho people'led him so much that ho fairly busted. You could a cracked fleas upon his stomach when ho croaked. Well, Old Abo got rind o' mo and sent for me. Christ Lloyd, who was elerk of thoPennsylvany house of representatives then, went to Wash ington with mo from Harrisburg. I said to him, 'Now, old man, I'm goin' to present this cheer to Abo myself. I don't want nobody to waw-waw for mo this time.' And I did. Old Abo was est tickled to death, too. Ho shuck lands with me, and on the sly he took me outen the east room an' gave mo a pull at some nice old bourbon. Then afterward L showed him old 'Cotton Baloj' that's the name of my old Kain tuck rifle, and lio took it up, sighted it at a imaginary bar, and said: "Seth, thet's tho Kind of artillery I was raised on.' Then I brought out nry fiddle, and he sot mo to playin', and I give him 'Gray Eagle,' 'Old Zip Coon,' 'Gal on a Leg, an(f tho 'Arkansaw Traveler.' He Jest roared all tho hile. Poor fellow! was in Ford's theatre tho night ho was hit "Yes, I givo a cheer to Johnson, too. I met him in Brown's hotel shortly after Old Abo war shot Ho heated 111c handsomely. Thct cheer was made outen a grizly bar. I had it rigged sos tho head o' tho old griz-sly'd pop out fiom under when you sot (low n into it, and show its teeth. Johnson was pleased with it, and wanted to know why I had fixed tho head in thet way, and I told him it was to keep tho oll'u e beekers from gittin' near him. I played tho old fiddlo for him, too. "An' I givo Hayes a cheer, also. It was mado of elk hoi ns. I didn't go to Washington, to givo it to him. I pio sented it at Columbus, 0., when ho was guv'nor and just after ho was nom inated. Some big-wig wanted to know if ho couldn't niako tho speech, and I said, 'No, sir, ye can't. I ain't much posted on grammar nor Webster, but d d ef I can't make Hayes understand me.' An' I did, too, for after he was elected ho 'pinted mo to an agency in Idaho under Guv'nor Ballard. Wall, I tuck sick in gittin' thar, and had to como to Californy. I was alius sorry I didn't git into tho place, too, for I heerd afterward that thar was thunder in' big stealins in that eio agency. Mr. Hayes didn't ask mo to tako anything, but I got all I wanted afterward." This was the last chair Old Seth pre sented. He now has at tho Interna tional two chairs, one mado of elk horns and tho othor of whalebone. The first ho intends presenting to Cleveland next spring. "It's tho last cheer I ever did make," said Seth, with ovident satisfaction. "It's tho boss, and don't you forget it." Ho is a gicat enteitainer, and loves to spin his interesting yarns. "Mamma," observed, a flaxen-haired little girl who resides' in an elegant North Side mansion, "I am 7 ycais old now." "Yes, my love," responded the fond mother, as sho gazed upon tho face ot her child. "Well, then," re sp'inded U10 midget, "in eight years I w.i; '0 15 j ear., old, won't I?" "Yes, i'i tling." "And then I will have to l.u;e t. beau, and oh, dear mo, how I do dread it." 1843. TH BEST THE. MUTUAL LIFE OF NEW Assets RICHARD A, McCURDY, President. J, V. VICKERS Agent.
