Trumbull of Chicago, and Thomas J. Haynes of San Francisco, registered yesterday at the Occidental. The Tucson papers say that work has not stopped on the Calabasas railroad, and that it will bo pushed to completion.' A letter received in Tucson states that Chas. Hudion, jhe ex-banker, has fallen heir to a large fortune by the death of a relative. The body of Bruce Rawson, of Flag .staff, who was lost in a snow storm on the 18th, was discovered on Wednesday ten miles from Flagstaff. The petitions for the reappointment of J. P. Clum as agent at San Carlos, which were sent to various points in the terri tory, are coming back numerously signed by leading citizens. The Quijoloa mining company is mak ing a start to run the tunnel from the west side. They will naturally have to make a pretence of doing something, as long as they call for assessments. Hard times have driven miners to pros pect the foothills within five miles of Tucson for the first time in twenty years, and they are said to be finding some good mineral. Col. Eugene B. Beaumont, major 4th Cavalry, who is on leave for four 'months from Fort Bowie, was registered last week at the Ebbett House, Washington, from his old home in Wilkesbarre, Pa. Mrs. H. G. Howe's school is now open, and parents wishing to have their chil ercn in school will find this a desirable place to send them. Pupils of all grades are solicited; Mr. Walker ssffered considerably yes terday, during the operation of setting Ins shattered leg. I he universal ex pressions of sympathy for him, which are heard on our streets, show what a favorite he is with our citizens. The post office department is about to issue orders for the carrying of the Los Angeles mail via Waterman, which will sava seven hours in the arrival and sev enteen hours in the despatch of mail, to Atlantic points, The following are the names of per fect pupils for the past week attending Mrs. H. G. Howe's private school: Mag gie Fisher, Fannie Fisher, Lucy Fisher, Lillie Ham, Lulu Howe; Charles Dodge, Sohdo Pachfto, George Van Alstine I). A. Sanford has left Tucson for the east with his family. They will stop in Texas a few weeks and from thence visit New Orleans, and from there go to Washington city, where the family will locate permanently, in which city they have a beautiful residence. M. Charles and George Myers, the clerks at the Palace dry goods house, are deserving of praise in their management of that flourishing house, both being ac commodating and genial young men. They are receiving a large amount of the Tombstone patronage, and the Epitaph can truly say that they are worthy of the confidence and esteem in which they are held by the public. II I in Anuto llrown's Nuceess. A little more than a month ago the El' ITAPH mentioned the engagement made by Miss Annie Brown, a former resident of Tombstone, with the Alfa Norman Opera Company. This engagement was secured after Miss Brown had devoted much time and labor to the artistic culti vation of her naturally rich contralto voice. Miss Brown made her debut as a professional on the operatic stage in Chi cago on the 2 1 st of last month. The opera sung was Balfe's "Enchantress," and Miss Brown was introduced to the musical world as Miss Annie Maxwell, and- in the cast personated Joaquina. From her first appearance Miss Max well's success was assured. She has since sung in St. Louis, Cincinnati and Boston, and in each 'city the musical critics have been enthusiastic in their mention of Miss Maxwell, while the ciitical audience before which she has appeared, have invariably rc-demanded her waltz song and English song, both, of which she renders with most charming and artistic effect' The Chicago papers were most flatter ing in their notices of Miss Maxwell. The St. Louis critics referred to her songs as the "gems of the performance." At Cincinnati she was agai d deservedly praised, and the Enquirer referred to her as "a singer of great power and greater promise." Even cultured Boston has recognized power .and sweetness of the contralto voice from Tombstone. The Globe says: "Miss Annie Max well gained well deserved applause, for her singing" as the gypsy-Joaquina," and the Herald, in an extended notice of the opera, after mentioning the waltz song, says. "The English song introduced by Miss Maxwell in the last act was the most artistic selection of the evening in the way of a vocal eftort, and well de served the demand made for its repe tition." This pronounced success is certainly very encouraging to Miss Maxwell and most gratifying both to her and to her many friends here and eisewhere. i'erfect I up I Is.

Editor Epitaph: I learn late this evening that the pub lic schools are closed down for "lack of funds." I look upon this as a public calamity. To me it is certainly a personal calamity. I have a child attending the public schools whose studies will be materially interrupted by this action of the board. consider their precipitate action uncalled for. This community will support the schools, as every one knows. Furthermore the. money already appropriated to the schools has been more than ampli. What has become of it, that they are to be closed for lack of funds ? Thousands of dollars have been donated by this community', for public instruction and now the public schools are to be closed down for lack ot funds. Trustees McFawn, Willis and Bagg, why is this so Why have you no money for school purposes, when such liberal provision has been made for this I necessary public institution? I Inquirer. Telegraph. MparUs. Bismarck, in a remarkable speech, in the Reichstag, on the expulsion of the Poles, said the primary cause was the disloyalty of the Poles to the German crown. Anti-Chinese meetings continue to be held throughout California. The committee on public lands has agreed to report the bill forfeiting the forty-five million acre A. and P. land grant. The people ofAthens having tele graphed to Mr. Gladstone, asking him to champion their cause, he replied caution ing piudence. The death of Senator Miller of Cali fornia, is expected at any hour. New York has commenced to boycott the Chinese, It is said that an effort is being made to induce the Mormons to purchase one of the Hawaiian Islands. Greece is said to have backed down and will keep the peace. Lord Salisbury has advised the Queen to summon Lord Harrington to form a cabinet. At l'renrott Also. Prescott is situated in about the same manner as Tombstone in regard to her schools. The trustees there have a debt of $900 and no money in the treasury. Writing on this subject the Courier says: "The closing of our public schools five months before the end of the school year would be a disgrace to Prescott which her citizens are not prepared to incur if a moderate amount of voluntary taxation can avert such a misfortune. The trus tees will, therefore, in a few days, submit their request to the taxpayers for $1,500, which amount, under the economical ar rangements they find after careful inves tigation they are able to make, will ena ble the schools to be kept open and the children to receive proper instruction until the close of the school year on June 30th." A I'ortlnent Inquiry. Tucson, Jan. 29, 1886. Editor Epitaph: Will you allow a reader, who has waded through a vast amount of "tax" and "no tax" literature, to ask one question? Do the gentlemen who compose the board of school trustees wish the public to understand that there is no middle course between the voting of the large sum of $8,000 and the closing of our schools? Common Sense. M. M. Sherman has just returned from an extended visit to the eastern states. Mr. Sherman was very seriously ill for several weeks before leaving, but returns looking as though life had no more sor rows for him. He says he encountered several degrees of weather and a few snowflakes on his trip. He is glad to get back once more where he can see and feel the genial sunshine. The professor says he saw hundreds of carcasses of cat tle in Kansas and Colorado that had per ished from the extreme cold, and the re sults of the recent blizzard will be ruinous to many stockmen. Call at the Oriental and let friend Mellgren bring a smile to your face by sipping some of his famous hot Scotch, t Any one having a February number, 1882, of the Century Magizine, will con fer a great favor on the St, Paul Guild by leaving same at this office.

To the Occupants oTLotn on the "Way Up" Mining Claim Surface. I have heretofore notified you that I own three-fifths of the surface ground of the Way Up mine. I now notifly 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 Septembet 22, 1880, when the patent to the town site issued. But, in any event, I would not disturb any one who has. improve ments on a lot for several years; unless, in the case of one who has indentified 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 10 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-fifths 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. AMES Reillv. Mrs. H. G. Howe will open her school again on January 5th. Pupils of all grades are solicited and parent? desiring private instructions or their children, may be assured that every attention necessary for their advantage will be thoroughly given, as Mrs. Howe is a teacher of many years' experience.
