CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. THfi Knights of "Labor" or the loafers who combine to obstruct the legitmate traffic of the country have got a little or ganization in this city, and this fragment are making desperate efforts to start an "organ." Abram Jonas Ritter, the fellow who, by fraud, was elected Treasurer of Cochise county, is one of the leading spirits of the movement. He, with the remnants of the defunct anti-Chinese gang, who, by the grace of the decent people of Tombstone, have been buried out of sight, is suffering for an "organ," and the gang who made such tremendous efforts to paralyze the business interests of Tombstone some time since, are the tools which Bagg, Ritter and Thomas are rushing forward. That Tombstone needs a gang of peace disturbers, commonly called Knights of Labor, is a question that does not have to be discussed. They have been instrumental in clogging the wheels of progress in every cily in the Union where their presence has been tol erated, and now in this little community, where business is almost at a stand-still, this gang of cormorants desire to fasten their hateful fangs. It looks strange that men like these would foster and foment trouble and discord in a community which has furnished their bread and but ter for the past six years, but their innate craving after a little cheap notoriety is what leads them to be parties to such transactions. The influence of this out fit upon the business interests of this community is only equaled by their abil ty to perpetrate wrong. If the oppor tunity presented itself, and they could be equal to the occasion, they would be instrumental in blocking the industrial wheels of our business interests. Ritter and his chums as yet have been unable to make the necessary "raise" whereby to float their blackmailing OTgan. In or der to get sympathy from the public they have circulated false and lying reports, one of the many is that the Epitaph is run in the interest of the land troubles in this city, and that it is controled by Judge Berry for this purpose. The plain unvarnished truth of the matter is that the Epitaph has always been on the side of justice and law, and is kept up by the business men of this community. The Epitaph has been outspoken on the side of law and order at all times, and under its present management will so continue. Several blackmailing sheets have been thrown to the breeze since the existence of this paper and they have always gone to the wall, and notwithstanding the many falsehoods indulged in by this fel low Ritter, we continue to publish one of the best and most outspoken newspapers ig this Territory. We are opposed to tl'ques and Thugs and such as call them selves Knights of Labor, who endeavor to use that organization to further their own ends and selfish desires. We snap our fingers at them in contempt and will assist in making them odious to this com munity. A few loafers organize for the purpose of dictating to the workingman how and who he shall work for, especial ly, mark you, in a little place like Tomb stone, where there are not more than one hnndred men at work in all. But we are firmly of the opinion that this secret or ganization are in a large degree responsi ble for so few men being at work. These are our sentiments, Messrs. Thugs. Now make the most of it. We must confess that we are surprised at the part taken In theC ommissioner of Immigration bill by our councilman, L. W. Blinn. When Mr. Blinn voted to continue that office for the purpose of continuing Tom Farish in office he in no wise represented the sentiments of the people of Cochise county. We are not going to take the gentleman to task for exercising , his own ideas of justice and propriety, but we can tell him that had he voted to abolish that office he would have represented the true sentiments of the people of Cochise county. We do not lose faith in Mr. Blinn, but we are led to believe that his generous nature led him into supporting that obnoxious measure solely to prevent a rupture in his party. Zulick has set his heart upon ap pointing Farish to the position, and he moved heaven and earth to keep the of fice intact. But the independence of the lower house is left, and we call.'upon them tOTefuse to vote an appropriation for the further maintainance of the office. France, evidently aint in no hurry this time to rush into war, txpierence hs taught her better. TELEGRAPHIC. Zulick Orders the Council to Stand Firm. And They Vote to Retain Tom Farish In" Office.

Representa tive Weaver, of Iowa, stated that he has received word from the president that he had directed Secretary Manning to obey the law concerning one and two dollar United States notes and issue the same. That order was emphatic and given to Manning orally but it would be reduced to writing and deluercd to the Secretary to-day. Weaver also states thht some years ago on his request a consultation concerning this matter waj held at which speaker Carlisle, Morrison, Weav er, Warren, Mills and Wilkins were present, Payson of Illinois and Brunmon of Pennsylvania were also consulted by Weaver as were also several members of congress. 1 he opinion seemed to be unanimous that the law had been viola ted and Carlisle was requested to bring the matter to the attention of the presi dent. One of these gentlemen is author ity for the statement that when the presi dent's attention was called to the matter he very promptly declared that the trea sury debt was wrong and hence his order as above stated. At the White House no in formation in regard to the foregoing, was obtainable except that the president has "written no such letter to the sccratary." Beyond this statement the president remarked that he didn't care to say anything on the subject. Treasttrei Jordan said that no instruct tion to change the present practice in regard to redemption, and issuance of United States note had yet reached his office. Secretary Manning aid to an associated press reporter this morning that nothing had been said or sent to him by the president on the above mentioned subject. A Mind S In rm. AILIANCF.O, Tel). 11.
