DAILY EPITAPH: TOMBSTONE. ARIZONA, SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 30, 1886.

DUMUA.lt. Krtltw St Prog' Fremont Htreet, opposite. '!' H" Tomljjtono, Oiihlo Oouritv. tfJoni CITY A0 COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER Silver bars were recently quoted in London at 465. 6J, the lowest recorded price of the metal. We wish our esteemed contemporary, the Tucson Star, would try and print so that we could read it once in a while. It is said that there is now no doubt as to the refusal of the senate to confirm Governor Ross, of Nev Mexico. An exchange states that the committee has reported adversely and thai the matter has been referred to a sub-committee of three, two of whom are said to be opposed to the confirmation. If sales of real estate are an index to the prosperity of a place, Los Angeles must be in a remarkably flumishing con dition. The sales in that city, for tvo days this week, amounted to $250,000. Los Angeles is a good example of what may be effected by judicious advertising, backed by solid resources. H. H. Markham, the Los Angeles con gressman, is doing splendid work for the people of this coast. His manly s.and upon the silver question will make him a host of friends amongst the laboring classes in all sections of our country. The Epitaph congratulates the tcpubli cans of our neighboring state upon their selection of Mr. Markham to represent them in the halls of .congress. By favor of Mr. M. V. Stewart, who is one of the directors, we have received a photographic view of the Territorial In sane Asylum as it will appear when com pleted. The building, as shown, is re markably handsome and imposing. Per sons who are judges say that the con tractors have undertaken to do the work at a price which will leave them very lit tle margin. The English tory government, having been defeated on a question before the house, lias resigned, and speculations are rife in London as to flic probable mem bership of the new cabinet. The chief difficulty is the Irish question. Parnell seems to hold the balance of power, and the Pall Mall Gazelle says that as he will in any event be virtually chief secretary for Ireland, lie mijht just as well be taken into the cabinet first as last. This would be a great victory for Ireland, whose cause Mr. Parnell has so persistently and judiciously advocated, whilst refusing to sanction those violent measures which have been urged by some ill-advised Irishmen. A Texas dispatch of the 29th asserts that fully 15,000 head of cattle lie dead on the prairies within a radius of seventy five miles from Fort Elliott, Tex., having died by starvation and exposure during the recent cold .weather. Texas, Kansas and Nebraska have lost by the cold this winter fully 200,000 head of cattle, and they are, at the present writing, dying by the thousands; whilst Arizona, with her unlimitedstock ranges extending through out the entire territory, where thrive and prosper thousands of fat cattle, has not lost a single head from other than nat ural causes. The days of our territory's progress are fast beginning to dawn. This land of sunshine, health and pros perity will ere long draw within its fa vored borders the necessary capital for the successful development of our re sources. The public schools of Tombstone, under the able management of Miss Herring, have acheived wonderful results during the past year. The teachers have been capable and intelligent, and no ef forts have been spared to make our pub lic schools the very best in the territory. It is with regret that we announce to the people the sudden closing of our schools. The trustees had better give the majter serious consideration before any plan of action, whiclHias for its object the clos ing of our school house doors, is acted upon. If it becomes necessary to the trustees to rescind their former plans in order to make others successful, why, do so, at once. We feel assured that the board have been actuated only by the best of motives in their dealings in this matter; but the task of obtaining the sum of $8,000 from the citizens of this dis trict at this time will, we think, meet with serious and fatal opposition. Hasty conclusions, by people who have the in terests of our schools at heart, are not at all becoming, consequently the Epitaph would advise the school directors in this emergency to seriously consider and weigh well the matter now in their hands for final determination before a con clusion is arrived at.

At the meeting of the convention to-day, the following reso lutions were adopted: Requesting congress to increase the protection at present afforded to cattle against contagious diseases. Favoring a detective system for the protection of ranges, subject to the con trol of the executim committee of the International Range Cattle and Horse Growers' Association. Directing the executive committee to confer with the commission men, with the object of inducing them to change their charges from a per capita to a. per centage basis. The report of the organization commit tee has been under consideration and de bate to-day, especially in regard to the representation basis. This subject has bsen made the order of business for to morrow morning. It seems probable that a basis of one vole - for each twenty thousand head will finally be agreed upon. Sullivan, the lllower. New York, Jan. 29. The Morning Journal says that Paddy Ryan was this morning shown a dispatch from" Boston in which John L. Sullivan said he would fight any man in the world for any amount from $5,000 to $ 10,000 a side, but would not place himself in a position where the law could take hold of him. After reading it, Ryan said: "That is all bombast. In one breath he says he will fight; in the next he says he won't fight. He knows there is no place in this coun try or in England where he could fight without being amenable to the law. I can't raise $io,ooo, but I will fight Sulli van .at any time, at any place, under any conditions, for all the money I can raise." Uladntonc nud Ireland. London, Jan. 29. Gladstone's recent speech was that of an adroit tactician, and committed him to nothing. He re gained while speaking his old ascendency over the house, and excelled himself in his fervent appeals to the spirit of con ciliation and justice. It is doubtful, nev ertheless, whether he has not widened the breach in the liberal party. Every body understood it as a bid for a Parnell ite alliance. The Irish cheered him warmly throughout. His denial of re sponsibility for the home-rule scheme convinced nobody. He did not deny his conversion to the principle of home rule. While his speech confirmed the universal belief in his desire to secure Irish sup port by creating an Irish parliament, its tone was one of anxious deference to Irish opinion. Nothing marked it so strongly as when he besought the Irish to forgive him for sayinghc still warmly supported Lord Spencer's administration. The Irish members not only forgive him, but warmly welcome the new recruit. Dakota's Chancea. Washington, Jan. 29.-Three territo ries are clamoring for admission as states Dakota, Washington and Montana. It is understood that the democrats are more willing to vote for the admission of Dakota than they were when the subject was first presented. They think that by a judicious use of the federal patronage and through a proper administration of the land laws, it will not be a difficult task to brinjflhe new state into the dem ocratic fold. It is asserted that the peo ple will naturally desire to stand well with the administration, and that, though it is republican now, alien it is found that the present dominant party there can have no control of government pat ronage, there will be a change of senti ment, which, if discreetly handled, can work a revolution in party politics there. On the other hand, it is claimed that the rulings of Commissioner Sparks, of the I general land office, have excited the most intense feeling against the administra tion, which no amount of public patron age can overcome. Crazy IUe luirtultr Paris, Jan. 29. King Ludwig is at present at the chateau of Hohenswanger, near Fussen, in the Bavarian Alps. King Ludwig no longer holds direct in tercourse with anyone save his secretary. His majesty has not suffered any of his ministers to enter his cabinet for several years. Even his secretary is no longer privileged to speak to the king, but he must communicate his business in writ ing, and he receives his orders in the same manner. His majesty has, within the last few months, grown too august to hold verbal communication with any thing earthly. He is never seen by his subjects. He has assumed a legendary rather than & real existence. Frozen Florida. New York, Jan. 29. The Sun's Jacksonville, Florida, dispatch says: It is certain that the big freeze extended all over the orange growing regions ofFlori da except a small area down about Panta Rasa. It is certain that all the crop on the trees was wholly destroyed. It is certain that all the nursery stock, young budded trees and young seedlings are killed. All the early berries and garden truck are destroyed. The question of the greatest importance is whether the bearing orange groves are killed. Nine men in ten believe that they are. If they are killed the calamity amounts to the wiping out of one of the states of the Union, for, as it is unanimously acknow ledged, it is oranges or nothing with Florida. THE DELMONIGO, Nogales, A.
