A Chicago man who had been ap pointed receiver for a certain firm went to a lawyer and asked: "Out of about $20,000 passing through his hands how much ought a receiver to profit ?"

"Why, I cin't possibly se what busi ness asy man has with the other 42,000," be replied. 11:30 a m 11:20 a m 10 65 a m 10:25am 11:10 am 0:25 a m 9.00 a in 8:20 am 7:50 a m ( 0:l0m 7:00 a m 8.00 a m . 6:35 a m 4:45 a m THE CATTLE CONVENTION. Interesting Notes or the Cowboys' Meeting at DenTcr. Files of the Denver, Tribune Repub lican," received up to yesterday evening, contain very complete reports of the pro ceedings of the Rangemen's convention, at that city, a special telegraphic report of which has been given, from day to diy, in the Epitaph: Denver seems to have been thoroughly awake to the importance .of the event and its citizens did everything in their power to make the meeting pleasant. From the journal above mentioned we con dense the following notes. Every state and territory of the west, with four exceptions, was represented. The delegation ranged in numbers as follows. Texas, 180; Kansas, 75; Miss ouri, 30; Wyoming territory, loo; New Mexico, 100; Iowa, 30; Illinois, 25; Ne braska, 50; Utah, 20; and Arizona, Dakota, Idaho, and the other territories from five to ten each. The New Mexico delegation didnt go much on Dorsey and he cut a very small figure in the convention. Col. E. B. Matthews, the Kansas City stockman, according to programme, pre sented lo the convention the huge, jet black, four year old Galloway steer "Jumbo," weighing 2500 pounds. The animal was led on the stage, to music from the baud. It-had been intended to slaughter him, but the idea of killing so fine an animal was not favorably re ceived and it was decided to present him to the agricultural college, at Fort Col lins. E. B. Light, president of the Denver Manufacturing Co., read a paper on "cattle branding," in the course of which he estimated the annual loss to hides by branding at $15,000,000. He was in favor of smaller brands, but the mem bers of the convention did not seem at all unanimous on the subject. Texas had nearly 200 members pre sent, representing 9,000,000 head of cattle, valued at $200,000,000. Following were the Arizona delegates present: Yavapai Co. Stock Growers' as sociation, J. J. Gosper; Southeastern Live Stock association, J. V. Vickers; The Tombstone Stock company, J. V. Vickers; Apache County association, M. H. Wells; Arizona Live Stock associa tion, J. A. Virgin, W. R. Campbell. A resolution was passed to appoint a committee to report upon the prospects of the proposed short route of railroad from the Rocky mountains to the Gulf of Mexico known as the Denver and New Orleans railroad. Resolutions in favor of silver coinage created considerable discussion, as to their appropriateness in such a conven tion, but were ultimately passed unani mously. The Denver Manufacturing company presented a handsome saddle and bridle to the president of the association and will make a similar present every year. Denver was unanimously chosen as permanent headquarters of the associa tion. The only point upon which any con troversy arose was the basis of repre sentation. The name of the association was fixed as the International Range association. The meetings of the association will be held, begining on the second Tuesday in February of each year, at Denver. Special meetings may be called by the president or vice-president, on the written request of a majority of the executive committee. A grand ball was given at the skating rink, at which costumes varied from full evening dress and white satin to shoddy black cloth and blue shirts. The neatest millinery establishment to be found within the city of Tombstone is that owned by Miss Minnie Raflferty, on Fifth street. The house is well stocked with all classes of fancy and ladies goods, such as Tombstone's Elite care to admire. Miss Rafierty has suc ceeded in building up a large and profi table business during her occupancy of the business. The Epitaph takes plea sure in recomending this house to the good ladies of Tombstone, knowing full well that kind treatment and fair dealing is the motto of the affable proprietress. There was quite a series of sporting events at the Oriental saloon last night. Amongst others, a sparring match be tween Messrs. Edwards and Burton, wun by the latter; another between George Walker and Mr. Flynn, won by the former. A wrestling match, collar and elbow, between Frank Bioad and Martin Mahoney, in which Broad won, another wrestling match, back hold, be tween Broad and Mr. Mauk, in which Broad again proved victorous, and a wrestling match, catch-as-catch-can, between Nick Demartina and Billy Butler, wsn by the former. This paper is kept on file at E. C. Dake's advertising agency, 64 and 65 Merchants' Exchange, San Francisco, Cal., where contracts for advertising can J ne mane. A tajL ridden city. Contention Offers the Holiool Trustees Some Hnril Nuts to CrnoK. Tucson, February 2, 1886. Editor Epitaph : In Sunday's issue of your valuable paper the school trustees published the financial condition of the district in their charge. In their statement, it appears that the expense of conducting the schools, for the five months ending January 31st, was $3,482.86. Will the gentlemen now please tell us why the schools cannot be maintained another five months for another $3,482.86 ? And if such a feat is possible, why do they ask an over-burdened people to vote them $8,000 to do in the next five months what $3,482.86 has accomplished in the five months just ended ? Rule or ruin, eight thousand or nothing is the motto of our heaven-sent school guardians, and they are sparing no effort to win the fight which they have so unwisely preci pitated between themselves and the tax payers. In proof of this assertion, witness the summary closing of the public schools. In the littleness of their hearts and the fullness of their spleen, these gentlemen regard that act as a perfect masterpiece of strategy, although many who have the courage to differ with them unhesitating ly pronounce it the most rascally piece of intimidation ever perpetrated upon a school going, school loving, school sup porting community. It was unnecesar and is unjustifiable; it was entirely un called for and was done to force pirents into voting for the new tax, extravagant though it be. Personally, 1 want the schools open, whether it cost eight or eighty thousand to maintain them; but when the trustees, injudiciously publish that less than four thousand will run the school for five months I, in common with most other taxpayers of this town, object to furnish ing them with a sum more than twice as large as they need. Here, let me say, that this is the most tax ridden community in the territory. The levies the past year were unusually heavy, and occasioned more suffering than was ever before experienced in this city. We have scarcely recovered from paying those assessments before we are met itli a demand for special school tax of 1 per cent, more, and I learned to day that an extra municipal tax will be arbi trarily collected early in March to meet the deficiency in the interest on the City Hall bonds. No wonder the taxpayer cries, "How long, Oh, Lord, how long?" So long as the people stand fleecing, just so long will some one ply the shears ; and I, for one, think the time has come when the sheep should call for a new lot of shepherds.

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 Septembei 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 to 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-fifihs 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. James Reilly. Mrs. H. G. Howe will open her school again on January 5th. Pupils of all grades are solicited and parents 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.
