It. to read our dispitches this morning, and set who are the fiends of the soldier hoys. . "" ""' Tho Copper Queen have already en ured into contracts for all the bullion they can produce for tho next five months, and in order to meet the terms of the contract they will be obliged to resume pcrations in their new smelter on the first of March. Copper is climbing back to its old figure, and should war bo de clared in Europe it will go up to a won derful figure. We are not clamoring for war, but if they desire to take, a shoot at ae another of course we cannot pre rent it. Without any of the bluster that usually accompiny reviving business in a mining camp, Tombstone is steadily pushing to the front. The Epitaph is pleased to witness that many of our old timers who Stood fimly for Tombstone and with un questioning faith in her future will new reap the reward they faithfully earned It is not the men who rushed away to pastures new when a slight de pression overtook the camp that will jeap the benefit which will accrue from a reviral of business, bnt the steady, steadfast men, whose abiding faith in Tombstone led them to stay throngh thick and thin that will garner in a harvest of prosperity. The Citiien's criticisms of Mr. Blinn, Councilman from Cochise, are unjust. Mr, Blinn is doing what he thinks best 'far Arizona's interests. He is not a pot keuse politician, as it icquired extra efforts on the part of his neighbors to persuade him to be a candidate for the Council. Mr. Blinn has resided in this ounty since its creation, and has always refrained from taking an active part on the politics of the county. While the Epitaph does not at all times agree with the gentleman, yet wc arc uillingto accerd him justice. We arc sufficiently acquainted with Mr. Blinn to know that he is a fair minded, honorable man, and whatever his actions in the Council may be, we will guarantee that they wore those of an honest, sensible man. We are not finding any fault with the Legislature for obolishing the County conrty, but we do right here rnter our protest against the proposition which is gaining ground in this Tar lory, and that is the depriving of mm who were regularly elected to offices created by law, of the emoluments of their offices l"here must be a halt called somewhcie oa this point, as great an unjust hard ships arepfrprtratcd upon innocent men. Under the present state of affairs it is danjerous to be a candidate upon any ticket, for there are no positions, with a tery few exception, which tre not at the wercy of the Legislature. It is unjust aid dtshancst for a Legislature to de prive a min of the emoluments of an fice to which the pcopie have elected him, and further it leaves the men who are occupying our diff. rent offices, com pletely at the mejcy of the party m power. Say for instance tint Cochise county should in th.- nest general elec tion elect her cntir-j Republican tickot, and the Territorial Legislature should be f the opposite faith, what is then to prevent them from abolishing the office of sheriff and re-enacting a law calling the executive officer of the county a marshal or any other name which might suggest itself, and allow the Governor to make the appointments, what assurance have we that a Republican would re ceive the position from his hands, what could be done wtth the sheriffs office would equally apply to all other county offices. Now, what we would like to see. ii a law forbidding any change in an office durieg the term fer which a man is elected, abolish the office if necessary, but do not let it take effect until after the expiration of the term. This is jait and fair to all. We have a case in point In this county in the person .of our county clerk, he with s6me fifty other candidates went before the people for thtir vetes, and now, after a stormy and accessful election, he is deprived of his See and its emoluments. He was per mitted to draw two month's salary from an office to which he was elected for two years. We sav that the nrincinle ) that of a highwayman, and will not b tolerated by an intelligent and an Pcan politics.

HOUSE. I'rlsco Counts Special to the Epitaph. Prescott, Feb. 26. The Frisco county bill came up to-day in the House, and after some very sharp practice on the pirt of it's supporters, and some very insulting lemarks being indulged in, passed by a vote of fifteen to eight.

London, Feb. 26. The leading article in the Fortnightly Review for March will be the third in six of Sir Chas. D.lkes' series on t,,c rrcsent condition of Euro powers, and dep-ccates in the strongest terms the policy of saving expenses on the srroy and navy, and especially the reduction of the English artillery, con cluding as follows: "the conclusion to which I come is that such is the spirit of the Russian people that in the event of a war nihilism would disappear and every Russian would support the policy of his Cztr. Such is the defensive strength of Russia in Europe, such is her offensive po cr from Caucasus towaid India that not only is the possibility of war to be deprecated as a terrible calamity, but it vou!d strain the power of the British em tire to the utmost.

The British cabinet fear the Russians will then fomentate an internal strife in Coora, and seize the opertunity of occupying the Country. The treaty recently concluded between England and China, make the invasion of Corea territory, by Russia a casus belli. The execution of christians in China despite the urgent protest of the French ministory, complicates affairs for England, as France would undoubtedly take sides with Russia. Russian move- ments arc being closely watched by lead ing polititicans. 1 InvrisCgiiUiiK ItnltromU.

The gallery of the House and all of the vacant seats elsewhere were croedcd; Bragg, oQWis consin, announced with a grand flourish that the men win advocated this bill, were not the friends of the true soldier. They advocated this bill, many of them, simply because the men could vote they expected to buy. Mr. Henderson, of Iowa For one I pronounteat false. Applause on the republican side and the galleries. Mr. Bragg I say that this is the sub stratum upon which all this action is based. If these men whom they call paupers were to call on them and ask them individually for aid, they would say to them: "You good for-nothing scoun drels' you are as competent to work as we are." Laughter and applause on the republican side The imputation is passed upon them by the passage of the pauper pension bill. This bill, would grant pensions to men who servvd from December, 1S64. to June, 1S65. Who ucie these men? They were the scum of the earth. They were the scum, aye, and dregs. They stayed at home until they were bought bought by men who :.pcculated in blood, paid from Sioo to SSco, with a private assurance that they wcrt. physically so defective that all they had to do was to goto the hospital and not endanger their precious carcasses. Gentlemen, talked about soldiers being in almshouses! The men who were found t'.-ere, were the men who had came fiom thtni and who, when they had left the army had lapsed into their old con dition. No true, brave soldier need ever go to the p.ior'i use. Men who went there, were nat.vs there. They had no self-respect, no character. They lay down nndopeiud their mouths fcr a teat to suck. Mi. Steele, of Indiana, interjected a remark. Mr. Brag;; said that he knew that the gentleman who had interrupted him, if he daied to vote according to his con science, vvjuld vote as he (Mr. Bragg) did. He knew gentlemen who had com mitted themselves day after day in op position to the principle of the bill, and weie grateful for the veto. (Cries of who are they?) I know what I am talking about. I hive heard them. (Repeated ciics of '"Name them, name your men. You can't do it!) The republican congressmen all of them! was Mr. Bragg's reply, which was greeted with mingled applause, laughter and jeers. The spectators who filled the galleries to their utmost capacity, and who listened eagerly to all that was said on the floor, now took part in demonstra tions of disapproval, and approval, and though without adding to the noise and confusion sufficiently to justify the Speaker in ordering a clearing of the gal leries, gave vent to their feelings until tho close of the debate by frequent ap plause. Mr. Bragg declared that the press of the country was opposed to the bill. Those gentlemen who sat up aloft (point ing to the press gallery) might some time or other turn this big persion boom into a much larger boomerang in some gen tleman's district. Applause. "We have fared as well in our district as the centlcmai has in his," exclaimed Mr. Henderson, ofdowa,and this allusion to Mr. Bragg's failure to secure arcnomi- 27, 1887. nation was greeted with loud and con tinued laughter on the republican side.

Oat Dan Sickles of the Pnird army corps, said that the veto wls a most gloittus deed. Brave men .f 11 piities stood by the president. Itwasodj little minds that went bi-ziing about like insects, tha opposed mm. Mr. Hendetsou, of Iowa, (contempt ously) Yes, you stmd by the piesiJenr. Mr. Bragg Nn staff commissary can excite me. I am speaking for what I consider the soldiers interests. The largest Grand Army po-,t in my Stte voted yesterday not to :.sl; the members of congress to go agais st the president. It is only a chss of gentlemen who hang around the Grand Army posts who crowd themselves in to gt-t $5 a week, and to live upon their comrades, who are making this grand hue and cry. A sol dier prefers to stand by his record and asks not that congress shall mark him as a beggar. He wants it understood ihat he is in private life, as he was in the army, a soldier fighting for the main tainance of the Union, loving his coun try and not asking to be supported by it. Why look at the effete contederate sol diers without hope toihrtg day by day and exhibiting a thrif;, industry and ener gy nr.-cr expected by thrm, while the northern man, independent, self-reliant, industrious, energetic and enterprising, ligs behind into idleness. Why? Be cause he is waiting for his stipend to comefrom thegov eminent, and when that stipend comes it is spsnt quickly, and if he comes from the poor houie he lapses back into that position and waits for another stipend. Humanity only needs to becncourg:d to do nothing. AVe are liable to drop into ths do nothing policy for us to legislate tb encourage vagabondism, whether anion,; our soK dicrs or enzens.
