CITY AID C0U.1TV OFFICIAL PAPER YounK Heechcr will receive $25,000, as his perquisite for the recent opium seizure. Mr. J. V. Vickers has made an effi cient member of the association of stock growers. Treasurer Ritter said to-day that there would not be a dollar for Tombstone school district in the net apportionment from the territory. Theo. F. White was elected vice-president of the Stockgrowf r's association at Denver. Mr. White is one "f Arizona's largest cattle owners and will make an able representative of the association. The Daily Indicator, ol New York, one of the gold bugs' organs, politely refers to the friends of silver in Congress as "champions of fraud," "examples of insanity" and "jackasses." Strong ar guments these 1 Seven brothers in Illinois have become raving lunatics through losing their money in a Nevada silver mine. It is a good thing that Arizonians are not af fected this way, or the territory would be bankrupted in trying to care for its insane. It is rumored that in the event of the failure to raise the tax of $8,000. The trustees will raise the teachets salaries to $200 per month, and that certain par ties in town have expressed a willingness to discount the vouchcrssixty per cent. Why not take it all neighbor. R. L. Long, territorial superintendent of schools, is on a tour of inspection throughout the territory, and will visit this city some day the coming week. Mr. Long is very desirous of visiting the pub lic schools of Tombstone of which he has heard such flittering reports. The Epitaph trusts that Mr. Long will have the pleasure of visiting our tchools dur ing his stay. As will be seen from our telegtaphic column, Mr. Townshend, of Illinois, has introduced a resolution in congress, pro posing a constitutional amendment, pro viding that the piesident and vice-president be elected by a majority of the people. There is no doubt that this change will eventually be made, as there is a very strong and growing feeling in lavorof abolishing the present clumsy system, which has frequently defeated the expressed wishes of a mijorhy of the voters of this country in their choice of -a president. Everything pertaining to school affairs in Arizona appears to be in a muddle at present. It seems that there is no money for the payment of the bills against the Normil school properly. The territorial auditor failed to give notice to the vari ous county supervisors in the territory to levy the Normal School tax, but two counties made provisions for that fund, Maricopa, and Apache. The result i that the contractors are compelled to get along with but a part of the money they have earned and there is a consider able number of other unpaid bills. The fight for the position of prison superintendent, is waxing warm. The democracy of Cobhise county are advo cating the cause of Johnny llehan for that office. Whilst the Epitaph is re publican in politics and don't wish to in terfere in the matter of democratic ap pointments, .we cannot but say, that we would be pleased to see Mr. liehan in the position. He is a generous whole souled man, true to his friends and generous to his foes, and if he receives the appointment will fill the office with credit. The Epitaph wishes Mr. Behan success in his effort to obtain the posi tion. There is no denying the fact that our city is very quiet at present. There are many causes for the business depression. The Indian troubles is one of the most conspicuous. The closing down of the great pumps on the hill is another. The many mining suits which have been in progress in our courts for the past four years have occasioned the closing down of some of the best mining properties in the district. Some of these cases have been amicably arranged, and will soon commence operations again, while others still remain in the toils of the hw, slowly awaiting its uncertain results. That a better and fairer day will soon dawn for our city, no one for a moment questions, and we trust the people who have so long and pitiently waited for better days to come will still keep up their courage sd await its coming.
