Tho 4RITAPII la tue only dally news papsr publlshod In Cochlso County. CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. 'Measels are a mighty convenient thing to have, more especially when bills are pinding in the lecistature on which one wants to dodge. Tho British provinces arc making dtmonstrations of dissatisfaction with the mother, government. "Old England is in all probability likely to have trouble with these liberty loving provinces in the near future. ' There isi great deal of solicitude on the part ofa few Senators lest the specu lators who bought up the trade dollar lose a few cents on each. This is a mat-ter-of much more importance to some of them than the Government paying its just debts to the soldier who saved its life s. - Silver was quoted in New York yester day at 1.04. This is the highest it has been since the President and his Secre tary tried to drive it from the markets of the .world. Silver was the money of the country centuries -before Cleveland was thought Qf;and it wilh continue to mike men and nations rejoice long after the f od closes over his rermins But its up ward tendency is cheerful news to our people. It means prospjrity for our .country. The Legislature has succeeded in abol ishing the county courts, but in their hurry to accomplish the result they over looked the proposition of cases now on appeal from the various county courts. It is a singular oversight on the part of the Legislature to suddenly deprive a court of all its .judicial machinery and make no pr6visinns for the continuance 7 cases adjudicated before it and now on appeal to the Supreme court. If any of the various cases should be reversed r returned for a new trial there is noth ing in the law which provides for such an emergency. 3"Kc Copper Prince and Queen have a case of considerable im portance now before" the Supreme court of this Territory, and should this case be reyersed it cannot under the new law be further adjudicated. This is an over light which should be remedied if this menagerie can find time to devote to so unimportant a measure. The disincorporation bill introduced by Mr. Blinn allows the trustees to im pose a license or not, just as they please, or as the case demands. There are many small investments in this town which ought not to be compelled to pay a license, and it is fair to presume that tbe trustees appointed by the supervisors will make every effort lo bring about a reduction in the affairs of our town. To begin with it reduces the expenses of maintaining a government more than one-half, hence it is only just to suppose that the current expenses will be reduced accordingly. The present system of li cense is by far too high in this place, and ihould, in the interest of the business in terests, be rcduqed fully one-half, if not abolished altogether.. We are in favor of (he trustees abolishing most of the present system "of license. If we ever expect or'desire "prosperity in this town th present government must be abol ished. It has neither the respect of the people of Tombstone, nor the confidence of the business men abroad, and the aooner it is laidlYuvay the better it will be for all concerned. - ,W ., .' The Arizona legislature will soon be a thing of the past. 'Its record is replete with buncomb and trickery, and the peo pie of this Territory would be in a better condition had such a gong of cormorants never (rtfested the capital. When we make these sweeping assertions there is as in this, as all -Other cases, an exception, but the Assembly is a blot upon the gov ernment of the country. No scheme was too huge nor too far-reaching for this gang to grapple witli. The welfare of the Territory and its people were lost sight of in their wild scramble to perpe trate a wrong. Arizona has suffered for years with a mass of incongruities en cased within what is commonly called the "statute," and the present Legislature was selected with a view of rectifying the many mistakes heretofore made by the law makers of this Territory, yet with all of the former wrongs and mistakes stand ing as a guide for their actions they de liberately follow in the old paths made obnoxious by years of experience and of difficulties. Time changes almost every thing on earth except an Arizona legis lator, who proudly preserves his anti- guatcd ideas and proclivities. TELEGRiPfflE. New Foundland Wants to Se cede From Great Britain.

If it is not now a declaration of Independence, it is the next thing to it. The New Foundlandcrs tell the Imperial govern ment that their fisheries are their own, and they do not propose to pay the slightest attention to the Ercnch or American interests or brook any inter ference from the Imperial govenment. The situation is so serious, that both Premier Thornburn and Sir Ambrose Shea, leaders ol the opposition, have gone to London to represent the dangerous character of the prevailing feeling in New Foundland.
