' General Crook is now at Fort Whip Plf; Deputy Collector Wilson, of Deming, will be removed to La Noria. Mrs. Fred Hinke has returned from a visit to San Diego, California. She re ports that business is good in that city. : ). J, Lebea and P F. Hook, promi nent citizens of Bisbee, paid the Epitaph office a pleastnt visit yesterday evening. The Tax-payers Committee will, it is said, keep up their organization until after the election. In a recent number, the Chicago Her ald publishes a long interview with the late Charles S, Benham, on Sonora mat ters. The leaders of the Boycotting League run away now whenever they see an Epitaph man coming around the co rner They must have bad consciences. It is reported that the Southern Pa cific will remove the, end of the freight division back to Deming, the wattr at Lordsburg not being sufficient in quan tity. It is hoped that some Chinaman will put the hose at work upon the Slop Com mittee of the anti-Chinese League, when they are gawking around citizens' back yards. The funeral of little Chustine Rastine was numerously attended yesterday. Quite a number of school-mates of the deceased child escorted the remains to the burying place. Miss Minnie Rafferty, the Fifth-street milliner, is doing a splendid business sincethe arrival of her new goods. This is the best place in Tombstone for ladies to provide themselves with everything needed in the milinery line. Tomlinson, of the Democrat, cele brated his birthday yesterday. Tom hails from the State of Maine, the home 'of the clam and the codfish. The EPI- tapii has a weakness for the old Pine Tree State. The best of order will prevail at the wrestling match, on the 24th ultimo, be tween Schumacher and "Greek" George. There will be twenty seats on the stage, at $2.50; reserved seats in the body of the hall, $1.50; general admission, Si. 00. , Many ladies have signified their inten tion of being present. - ""'" """"""" Assessor Burke returned yesterday from a' professional tour through the Sulphur Springs valley. He says there are enough cattle in that valley for its present capacity. The stockmen are praying for rain. Charleston is dull, owing, to the removal of the smelter to Tucson. It is a striking commentary on the freedom of t,he press in this country that the Fort Worth Gazette has to be pro tected.by a guard ol soldiers because it has chosen to discuss the labor question from the standpoint of reason and com mon sense. And, too, it is for protection against the men, who claim that they cannot have liberty of opinion. They have not drawn the line yet as between liberty and license. El Paso Tribune. Writing of the reception of General Crook at Deming, the Headlight says: "The General left on the Santa Fe train to take command of the Department of the Platte. It was a noticeable fact that the General was not talked to death by admiring friends while in town. He looked lonely and it was no difficult mat ter to believe that he was telling the truth when he said that he was glad to get out of this country, and he might have added that the people were glad to see him go and would have parted with him without a pang of regret if he had gone soveral months ago. THE NAVA.TOES. latrrfatlnff Information A lion t a Jtfl inarkatiln Trine or Indiana, The Holman committee which re cently visited Arizona, has been inter, viewing "Navajo Sam," who was born in New York City. He gave the committee some interesting information regarding' the Navajo Indians. The following ex tract trom the interview is trom a! Washington telegram in the New York Mail and Evoress: "They can do anything that you or I can do. They are good silversmiths and blacksmiths, shoemakers and farmers. They want to be citizens of the United States. They pay taxes to Arizona in horses and blankets. The Moqui tribe of Indian people claim to be rich. They are big cowards, but terrible workers; they have a number of thousand of sheep and some goats; they have nnt got any running streams. The agent is in with the contractors. They are peaceable and very industrious, and all they need is education to make them the best citi zens. The children are employed in watching sheep and goats. The men only own their own ponies. The women oun the houses. If a woman's husband dies she goes home to' her husband's brother, if he is living. They have no war-like dances, but have corn-d.mces and ram-dances. They are not a nation to take sculps.1' Q. Wefcil portion of the Navajos are on their reservation? A. About 14,000 on, and about 14, 000 off their reservation. Q. Aren't they having trouble with Arizona by getting off their reservation? A. They charge them taxes, and if they get a good range they steal it from them; and one thing they want is a right to buy supplies. You take a flock of sheep and run them across a tract of land and they will burn everything; they have got to have water for them. The trouble is they have not water enough. They have got $150,000 worth of silver ware among them. They will drink whisky, but they will not buy'it. Q. Do they go from one house to another? A. They keep some one in the house, They are without doubt the richest class of people we have in America. As a people, they will outvalue any other people. There are none of them poor; all hae something. You start a boy out with ten sheep, and when he is twenty-five years of age he will have a big herd. .-. -- In nemorlam. Tombstone, April 12, 1886.

H. C. Fraser, Martin Castello, J. F. Lippert, Committee. Ueronuao at Work. An EI Paso dispatch says, an Ameri can gentleman who has just arrived in El Paso from western Sonora, reports that Geronimo and his band of hostile Apaches are doing considerable mischief near Babispe. There seems to be very little doubt that nearly all the Apache scouts that were in service during the re cent Apache campaign under Crook have joined Geronimo. These same scouts, while still in the federal service, last win ter, committed many depredations in that portion of Sonora, stealing stock on bll occasions, and when ordered to return the same by their commadding officer, flatly rafused to do so. It is thought that in the case of many of these scouts, fear of punishment has caused them tto join Geronimo. The House Committee on Territories has agreed to report favorably the bill to provide for the organization of the Indian Territory and the public land strip into the Territory of Oklahoma. The bill provides that nothing in it shall be so constructed as tending to disturb the ex isting property or treaty rights of the Indians. The bill also provides that the public land strip shall be opened to settlement under the provisions of the homestead laws only, and that as soon as the Creek and Seminole tribes shall give their assent, the unoccupied lands ceded by these Indian; to the United States, shall be opened to settle ment under the five years' settlement laws. The anti-American, anti-Labor, anti- Chinese, anti-Anything League, have placed the following-named anti-gentlemen in the field for ihe next cam paign: Jingo Grano Man Rodinson Con-gressman-at-Large -the larger the coun try the better he will be pleased to fill any vacant district in Northern Mexico, Canada or the United States. For Sheriff C. N. Thomas, the young man who docs want an office, and can't reach it. For District Attorney, the "grand man," as he might fail in securing a va cant district and would like to keep an eye upon this office. For County Recorder, J. M. Nash. For Treasurer, J. J . Nash. For Clerk of the County Court, W. A. Nash. F01 Supervisor, J. M. Nash. For any other vactney which might arise, L. Nash. The League will be consulted before any other nominations are made. Silver King. We have seen an official telegram an nouncing that this company have pur chased for cash the Bilk and mining claims on the west of the King, with an extensive, efficient plant. The intention is to make connection with the bottom of the 1,000-foot shaft on the Bilk claim and use it for drainage and pumping and ven tilation. This will enable the Silver King Company to open their ground in 800, 900 and 1,000 foot levels. The pur chase was made for cash and the same has been fully paid. This, we may add, is an important acquisition for the Silver King. Financial and Mining Record. The latest reports from Sonora, from a Mexican source, state that an expedition uuder command of General Otero, with 900 men, left Navajoa to reconnoitre the situation some distanre into the Yaqui interior. The forces were sub-divided and had several engagements with the Indians, in which it is claimed that eight Yaquis were killed. Seventy-six Yaqui prisoners were taken, of all ages and sex, and a considerable number of cattle cap tured. Several of the children were sick with the small-pox. Having accomplished its purpose, the expedition marched back to Navajoa. Mr. Roberts, owner of the ranch in Sonora, 35 miles south of here, which was reported raided by Apaches a few days ago, came into town last night and confirmed the report. The Indians came in broad daylight and took away twenty five head of horses. a Novelty. A new idea in cigars the Cuba hand-made cigar made by Cuban workmen from the very best Havana tobacco.
