The Phenix Gazette has passed into the hands of Torn Parish. Neither wine, ale, porter or brandy has ever been manufactured in Japan. The Danish temperance movement has iow an army of 35,000 total abstainers. Ceylon is the only English-colony that (contributes any thinj to the imperial army There are said to be over six bundled Ihousand opium consumers in the United States. Charleston is now enjoying more pros- Iperity than for a Ion time. It is no Pompei yet. The Bisbee smelters are running in full blast having received a sufficient sup ply of coke. If the floods continue a gcod deal of )akota will be washed into to the Union in the course of time. Mr. B. A. Fickas, who recently return ed from Phenix, speaks very highly of that promising section. It is reported that J. M. Bracewell, has jone to Willcox, to negotiate for the sale of the Stockman. Carter Harrison didn't deliver the I Democrats, and Van Pelt's 60,000 failed to materalize for mischief, Old Roman that he is, Judge Thurman fis not entirely in harmony with the Dem ocratic party. "I do not want and will lot accept any office" he says. Boston has reached the Englishism of Ispelhng jail "goal" but the place itself hooks the same to the North Americans who go there for a spell. . The five hundred restaurant keepers in New York have combined to guard against possible strikes on the patt of employes. Mat. Everhardy, of Benson, paid I Tombstone a visit yesterday. Mat. is thir.king of engaging in the butcher business in our city once more. The Epitaph made a mistake in the name of the new pump. It should have I been Worthington, instead of Welling ton. A Canadian editor describes his con- temDraryas"a freak against nature's laws sandwiched between a weazened-up seul and a diseased imagination. Torn Ewing and Johnny Young, well known Tombstone miners, are reported as having made a rich hit i the Provi- dencia district, Sonora. Dick Gird, one of the original dis covers of Tombstone, is becoming a great Don in Sonora. He has recently bought several large land grants there. A party of twelve Fredericksburg hun ters, with thirty-five dogs, recently spent several days fox hunting in King George County, Va., and captnred eighteen foxes. Jim Tate left yesterday for his ne,w mine in the Dragoons. He has sunk about ten feet and has struck some good silver ere and a fine quality of lead ore. . The young colored man who has been appointed Minister of the United States to Liberia is as black as coal and cross eyed. Otherwise he is said to be a straight man. Harry Clawson now of Bisbee but for merly an old Tombstone miner and his wife arrived in town yesterday. Mr. Clawson is an entrusted employee of the Copper Queen mining Company. Joseph Rabitt, fireman at the Court House in St. 'Louis, has fallen heir to $3,000,000 by the death of his uncle, also named Joseph Rabbitt, at Melbourn, Australia. SolJTers in Limbo. For several months past a company of soldiers have been stationed in Morse's Canyon in the Huachuca mountains, for the purpose of raising vegetables for the Fort. It seems as though the cattle of the ChUicahua Cattle company range in the vicinity, and according to the sworn statement of Mr. James Pursly, who is the icsident manager of the com piny, the soldiers have been in the habit of appropriating animals from his herd to supply the demands of the squad, this Jim very properly objected to, and in consequtnee had five of the soldiers arrested, and yesterday they were placed on trial before Judge Shearer. The first witness for the prosecution was a soldier, who had turned states' evidence. He testfied that the soldiers had killed two head of cattle, but that he had no hand in it. Pursly and Albert Smith testified to finding the heads, feet and the hides of the cattle bearing the Chiricahua Cattle Company's brand burned in the vicinity of their quarters. In rebuttal one of the soldiers swore that they were shuoting at a mark some days since, and killed a yearning by accident, that they cut it up and brought it to camp, intending to pay the owner for it, if they ever learned who he was. A- he conclusion of the soldier's statement t ic court adjourned the case until 2 p. n.. to-day. County Records. The following documents were filed in the County Recorder's office yester day: Deeds oe mines. Albert Steinfield Jo Louis Zecktiidorf Copper King mine Warren dislric; $100; Louis Zecken dorf to W. E, Dodge and D. W. James Copper King mine, Warren district $17 500; Albert Stainfield to W. D. James All interest in Copper King mine Warren District; $10. ' , Release of mortgage. J. F.

Harwood F. A. Barthol omew, J. W. Bartholomew. Brand. W. C. W. Smith-Cattle and horse V. O. Patent.--United States to Albert Steinfisld et al Copper King mine War ren distridt. Scott vs- Bean. Hon. A. A. Bean, a Republican of the old school, and one of the brightest members of the Fourteenth Legislature, arrived in Tombstone yesterday, on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. Judge Stilwell. Col. Bean's record in the late gathering at Prescott is credible and praise worthy. He was a man who did not seek every opportunity to air his talents, nor neither did he spell committee of the whole, "Comite of tne hole," as did Smartie Scott, his colleague. All in all, Col. Bean was one of the most conservative men in either house, and made a record for which he need not make any aoolo gies. Tne infant child f Mrs. and Mr. Wm. Dougherty, old and respected residents of Tombstone, died yesterday and will be buried to-day at 2t o'clock from the residence of Mr. Dougherty, Tenth street between Safford and Fremont. Death is at all times an unwelcome guest, was peculiarly so in this case, it being the second little one the bereaved parents have laid to rest during the past few months. The Epitaph in common with the many warm friends of the family tender our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved parents. Little Willie Sells, the boy murderer of Kansas tells a plausible story. His brother killed his father, and that made Willie so angry that he killed his brother Then he killed his mother, and because two or three of his young brgthers and sisters cried he killed them, it wouid be a great pity to hang Willie, but they hve no insane asylums where he is, and under the interstate commecrce act a rope costs less than .1 railroad ticket. Public Printer Benedict has discharged 43 employes of the government printing offices, including 33 compositors, proof readers and. copy-holders, five book binders and five girl assistants. The reason assigned for the dismissal was that a reduction of expenses was neces sary. The examination of L. Laricu, charged with unlawfully killing a steer belonging to the Vail Cattle Co., was tried in Justice Shearer's Court yesterday. A few wit nesses for the prosecution were examined when the court adjourned until Wednes day next at 10 a. m. oweing te the absence I of sheriff Slaughter. MISSING LINKS. The Commission nf the District of Columbia have decided to revive the Blue Laws on Sunday next. The President savs that if necessary he proposes to unflinchingly enforce the retaliatory law against Canada. The Berlin correspondent of the Daily News says that a secret treaty has been concluded between Sweden and Germany against Russia. Col. King Harmon, Conservative mem ber of Parliament for the Isle of Thanet, division of Kent, has been appointed Under Secretary for Ireland. Fights between the striking carpenters and the imported carpenters in Chicago have occurred. The imported men have in many cases been compelled to quit work. " Nine strikers were arrested. The Interstate Commission has ap pointed E. L. Pugh, of Alabama, to a clerkship under that Commission. This is the first appointment made by the Commission. Gapt. Samuels, of the steamer yacht, Dauntless, defeated by the Coronet in the race across the Atlantic, says with regard to the reported trouble, that the entire stry was a complete fabrication. Four thousand two hundred and seventy-three emigrants were landed last Friday at Castle Garden, the largest number in one day at this season of the year since Castle Garden was first used as a reception place for emigrants. Capt. Ira Paine made a remarkable score and beat the record with an army revolver at Boston en Friday. He shot ten rounds of ten shots each on the standard American target at fifty yards, and made a total of 841 out of a possible 1,000. The score of his fifth round was 90, which is the best ever made. A man working in a lumber camp near Florence, Wis., falls into a trance about 7 o'clock every Saturday night and holds imaginary conversations with a woman in Green Bay, who he says has bewitched him. He frequently talks to her half the night, repeating her replies for the bene fit of his companions. The Director of the Mint, under the provisions of Section 3510 of the Re vised Statutes, with the approval of the Sacrctary of the Treasury, has issued a circular inviting designs for the obverse and reverse for the silver dollar and minor coins of the United States. An award of not to exceed $5,000 will be made for each accepted set of designs. The circular is addressed t wll known artists. At a close of a prayer meeting in one of Troy's churches recently a lady who had reached the. vestibule on her way out missed one of her rubber over-shoes. She went back and searched for it. Several friends assisted' The overshoe could not be found. As the search was about to be abandoned the lady made the discovery that she had put both 'rubbers on one foot, one over anotker. Forty years ago an old lady in Baldwin, Fla., about to die, made her children prsmise not to bury her body. She threatened to haunt them if they did, and so when she was dead they placed the body is a stout coffin of Florida pine, placed it on the surface of the ground in the graveyard, and built a strong log pen around it. The log house is in good condition now, and so is tilt coffin within it. Childrens sale to-night, for the benefit of the Bell Tower Fund, at the store cor ner Fourth and Freemont streets, across from the Postoffice. All who are interes, ted in the children, come. "Pap" Price, of the Providencia Min ing district, of Sonora, is in town on business connected with the mines there, which are among the very best in that district. Mrs. Sally Gillette, of Buckland, Mass. celebrated her one hundredth birthday recently. -She shook hands with 2CD friends who called to congratulate her and it is said, "showed rare social powers." The new narrow gauge incline railroad up Lookout Mountain, iust completed. has cost about $200,000. It runs from the foot ef the mountain to the spot where General Joe Hooker planted his flag. About one thousand tons of tailings hae been worked at the Toughnut mill so fir, and it will be several months be fore the large dump of tailings will have passed through the mill and over the concentrators, OFFICIAL REPORT. Proceedings of the Board of Supervisors of Oocliise Oounty. Tombstone, April II, 1887. Board met pursuant to adjournment, at 10 a. m. Present -Supervisor J. E. Durkee and Clerk English. Minutes of previous meeting were read and approved. There not being a quorum present the board adjourned to April 12, 1887 at 10 a. m. A. R. English, Clerk. Mrs. Kary E. Haggart, jn a plea for woman suffrage before a mass meeting of Indianapolis workingmen, predicted that "humanity as a whole, not humanity as a half, would before many decades solve the'problem of humanity." When the alarm of fire was given yes terday by the sudden report of three alarm shots, about fire hundred people appeared on Allen street in less than fire second?. They seemed to spring on the streets like bees out of a hive. Adam Forepaugh's proposition to Mrs. James Brown Potter to become a star in his great oriental spectecle will hardly be accepted. She is making a great North American spectacle of herself in London already. H. W. Ayers, better known as "Wake Ayers," will return to his mine in Sonora to-morrow. He is one of the most prac tical miners in this countiy, and from specimens exhibited by him it looks as if he has struck it rich in the land of the maiiyana. j They tell in St. Louis of a very pre cise woman who sailed into a dry goods store and asked to be shown some "dig sifiers." "Wh-a-a-t?" stammered the clerk. "Dignifiers," said the lady, severe ly. The clerk had to give it up. "Well, bustles, then!" snapped the precise per son, scornfully. Two thousand one hundred and twenty-eight feet per second was the initial velocity of the iSoo-pound projectile fired twice with 1000 pounds of powder from tho new 100-lon gun intended for the British ship Ben Bow. The gun survived. Mrs. Mary P. Pelton, sister of the late Samuel J. Tilden, died in New York Sat urday. She never leceived any of the property left her by her brother though the executors were told some time ago that unless she received it soon she would derive no benefit from it. There is reason to believe that the newspaper reporters of Boston need an application of cold cloths to the head. None but a fevered brain could invent and disseminate a graphic story of' the Wreck of an ocean steamship and the loss of 800 lives when the steamship aforesaid was already safe in port. Stark Suidan at Louis Spring has de termined to change his breed of fish and has sent to the East for a number of Carp which to populate the waters of the ranch. Hereafter he will raise Carp in stead of suckers, and the people of Tomb stone, in a year or so will be able to lux urate upon the best fish meat that swim in any waters. A Life Mads Miserable. By dyspepsey is scarcely worth the living. A capricious appetite, heartburn puzzeling nervous symptoms, increased action of the heart after eating, sinking in the abdomen between meals, and flat ulence after, are among the successive indica of this harrassing complaint. Two things are needful in its removal. A re sort to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, and persistence in its use. These remedial measures being adopted a cure is certain Takon immediately before or after meals this stomachic promotes secretion of the gastric juice, the natural solvent of the food. The nervous and billious sympt oms consequent upon chronic indigestion disappear, as the complaint gradually yeilds to the corrective and invigorating influence of the Bitters. Appetite returns sleep becomes more refreshing and as a sqeuence, the body is efficiently nourish ed, muscular power increases, and the mind grows sanguine. Use the Bitters for chills and fever, and the rheuma tism. Notice On and after April 1st, weekly ice tick ets will be sold for $1 and upwards. Ice to weekly customers will not be delivered without ttckcts. tf. Southwestern Ice Co. J.
