The Los Angeles Times of yesterday publishes the life and adventures of the now famous Kissane. The chances are very favorable that a mail route will be established between Tombstone andpchoaville. For the best quality of bread, pies, cakes and all kinds of first class pastry call on the American Bakery. It looks as though sheriff Slaughter and his friends would survive the late onslaught, of Judge Reilly. Postmaster Clark it is thought will not hand in. his resignation notwithstanding the opposition of our neighbors. Joseph Tasker, of the Soldier Holes ranch, is in town. Joe is greeted by a large number ot friends upon each visit. Hon. A. A. Bean, still lingers in Tomb stonej The Epitaph would be pleased to see the colonel take up his residence in our city. When railroad thieving is found to have descended to the level of larceny, as in the case of the Panhandle employes, it is viewed with much alarm. - California produced 46,000,000 bush els of wheat in 1886, and $85,665,000 in gold and silver and the state has a bank ing capital of $570,000,000. Mlie. Maria Deralsmes is said to be the only woman freemason in France. She is a good speaker, a terse writer, and a strong advocate of suffrage for women. Mrs. Louisa Knapp who now edits the Ladies Home Journal at a salary of $5, 000 a year, did her first editorial woik on the household department of the Tribune and Farmer. The Knights ot "Labor," on making arrangements for their parade which will ta.e place on May 1st. Very wisely con eluded to have no banner but the stars and stripes. The woman who lives with a man three hundred and sixty-five days in a year is not eoine to be degraded ta any alarm ing extent by voting with him on the three hundred and sixty-fifth. Officially the Governor of Rhode lslaad known as "Governor and Captain Gener al of Rhode Island and Providence plan tations." For a Democrat this is pretty high. Followine closely on the heels of the first ice cream poisnlng comes a report of the initial explosion of a soda water re tort. The defective flue and the car stove are therefore out of date and sum mer, with all its perils, is upon us. Judge Peel, returned yesterday from Bisbee, at which place he had been on a visit to his friend Captain Heyne, The Judge reports much activity in the copper camp, and predicts a very prosperous future lor the canyon city. There is a strong probability that the time of the departure and arrival of the Bisbee mail will be changed. The change is required by the people of Bisbee, and will be much more convenient for the cit'uens of that place. Buffalo Bill is astonishing our Eng lish uncles and cousins. The Londoa Daily News tell it readers that "Buffalo Bill is not a wild Indian, as many of lhcm have snnnnned.but the Hon. W. F. Cody, a member of the United States ParliamenLj The Epitaph is pained to learn of the serious affliction of littlo Lula Gasper. The character of her injuries necesltate her removal to San Francisco for treat vent. We trust the little patient will toon raturn to Aritoaa smiling and JPPJ' A LARGE TBADE Is Within the Grasp of Oar Torabtoo Merohints. Can merchants and business men ex tend their trade? In looking over tho creat mineral wealth of this Southera Aruona country one is to apt to forget its other resources. The glamour that at tends the delving into the bowels of the eanh for the precious metals shown to exist in large quantities, seems to have turned the thoughts of most of the busi ness men of Tombstone to.miniujj as the only source of wealth. - The successful men in trade are those who keep am rye single to the advancewent of,, the court; try in which they reside, opening new avenues, offering greater facilities to outlying districts. Let the business men of Tombstone unite-demand of the gen eral government better mail facilities, show the prospector, miner, cattlemen, rancher, that they are alive and working for the interest of all, trade will increase. How long cin Tombstone commaad any portion of the trade of the great Sulpkur Spring Valley, Rucker, White Water and the Upper S.ta Pedro without effort. Look at the future of that great belt of country, east of the Sonora river to the Sierra Madre mountains, one hundred and fifty miles east and west by three hun dred miles north and south, cut off from the western portion of the STATE OF SONORA by ranges of mountains that makes the San Pedro the natural outlet for that whole country. Starting from Tomb stone south along the San Pedro valley to Ochoaville, thirty miles, with herds of cattle and acres of agricultural land, pass to the border custom house a little east of south fifty miles will take you to Fronteras with ranchesand cattle around about, pass to Nacosari, one hundred and forty miles from Tombstone, will be found the San Pablo, San Pedro, Rosario, Fortuna, lloody and other mines rich in the precious metals, turn east, sixteen miles, Jesiiquepa will appear with its Ygnacia, Avido and San Antonio mines, showing free gold, turn south twenty-four miles to Oputo, and you will pass some of the oldest and richest mines of the Spaniards, being on the Bavispe river, pass to Huasabas and Granadas, rest here. In this district is crown some of the finest tobacco in the world. Turn cast by south to Nacosari. seventy miles then fifteen miles south and view the ground that drank the life blood of heroic Crawford pass on twenty miles to the border of the ranchos de Nacori, the Grandes valley and stock ranges in all the Sierra Madre, crystal water break ing and bubbling wheiever you go. All this time you have been traveling be tween the Sierra Madres and a range of mountains that exttnd from near the Arizona line to the Yaqui river, this being not quite half of the country spoken of. Take the road for the HEAD OF THE SONORA RIVER from the c ustom house traveling south you pass the Ojo the Agua ranch, thirty miles from the line, Uncle Bill Plaster, further down the river you pass mines and ranches to Bacuachi, one hundred and five miles from Tombstone, then to Cumpas, sixty miles, there you will find the Beckertons, San Brannan, John Dart, all rich in mines, well stocked with in formation and take to the ways of the country like a native, genial boys every one. You are on the Moctezuma river pass down twenty-one miles to Oposara, you are in the orange region country, seven mi'es more and you will reach Tepachi, where oranges grow to per fection. Twenty miles east to the Pro montorio copper mine, the Seven Bells at Oposura, those at Sahuaripa, Hua sabas, Tepachi, that call the godly to prayer are the product of this mine, passing from Tepachi along the west idR of the Promontorio mountains are Lampasas and the Gabilan miaes, oa the road to Sahuaripe you cross the Yaqui sixty miles south to the La Trinidad. La Trinidad mine was sold by that well known mining expert, Alsua, to an English company, who are turning out a fortune. Tom Corrigan has a mine here down the Yaqui from Sahuaripe sixty miles to Sepachi, where 5he Mexicans do congregate when they have business to transact with thai wily chief, Cajeme, whose possessions are still further west, from the Gulf of Califorr.ia east, Cajeme claims seventy miles of the Yaqui river being protected on the north by a range of mountains, hard to climb, reaching from the Gulf to Syopi. Start from Sahuaripe east up and south of the Yaqui fifty miles and you are at the Mulatos mine, the largest gold mine known on the continent. Think of it men of Tombstone, all this country should draw its supplies from this dtv. Will , you make an aff-rt for l-ls trait? TOMBSTONE! ARIZONA, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL The Maxwell Grant. The Epitaph don't presume to differ with the decision of tho Suprene Court on the famous Maxwell land grant, but we do know that orignal title papers onlycall for 96,000 acres, andthat through the dishonest effort of 1 md officials lias been increased to the enormous limits of 1,714,964 acres. This too is only one instance in the wheles.le fraudelent con veyances of government lands, during the past ten years. And to-day all tn.t stands between the settlers of this Ter ritory and their homes is W. A. Sparks, the cranky old land commissioner, C. E. Dailey, of Tacson, and sterling old John Hiie, Aritoaa'- Surveyor-General. Every honest effort that' could be made to pro tect our settlers-from the wholesale land robbirs, has been made by these three men, and the citizens of this territrry re spect them for their honesty ad faithful ness in their official capacity. Kail Boutes The second Assistant Pottmistei Gen eral, in reply to a letter from P. M. Clark has instructed him to change the sche dule on the mail route from Tombstone to Bisbee, to give Bisbee better mail facilities east and west. Here is the re sult, Moaday March 35th, mail will leave Tombstone at 1 p m arrive at Bisbee at 6 p rr., leave Bisbee at 6 a m arrive at Tombstone at 1 1 a m , This change gives Bisbee the east and west mail the same day that it reaches Tombstone, and mail that leaves Bisbee for the east and west will go out the same day with the Tombstone mail. Now Mr. P M. get a mail roota to Ochoaville, correct the delays ia the mail between Tombstone and Charleston, Fort Huachuca, Nogales and you will confer a favor upon the com munity. That'i Different. The money is said to be fairly rolling in to help pay far the gold belt studded with diamonds, to be presented to John L. Salliv-a by admirers in Baston, and New York and Philadelphia. "A little girl started a nickle prize package gift enterprise in New York the other day to help the Grant monument fund. She took in fifteen cents during the first two weeks and tbea was arrested for running a lottery. Friday night of this week, is to be set apart by tkc lovers of fun, for tatending the concert of the Peak Sisters, at S chief- felin Hall. And we feel justified in pre dicting a genuine treat to all who have anything comic in their composition. The ballads and operatic airs will be ren dered with a spirit by "the gals" that will entrance the audience. The symph onies to be performed upon costly instu ments of rare construction, cannot fail to challenge the admiration of all those who have any masic in their souls, td It is reported that Cleveland has at last decided tp make a western trip. He may do it but we rather expect that when he gets to Buffalo, New York, and looks off across the wild and howling wilder ness filled with ferocious beasts and lurk ing savages, that lies west of there, his courage will fail him again, and he'll get no farther. A mam who ventures more than a mile or so west of Buffalo does so at his own peril anyhow. The cashier of a Chinese bank tried to leave with the funds for Japan or some place, an the American plan, the other day, bat it is net believed that the cus tom will become popular. The govern ment walled up the cashier in a cell to starve to death and chopped the heads off all his family. And next fill they are going to decapitate every body in the em pire bearing bis name. Mary Clemmar once entered into a contract to write a column a day for three years on any subject assigned her. She never failed for a dav to fulfiill her task. which included every sort of subject from book reviews and political articles to a comman advertising paragraph. During the last years of this contract she got a salary of $5,000. The regular annual settlement of the Afghan boundry question by England and Russia has just taken place in the usual way, Russia gaining a big step without fiehtinc for it. One of these days Afran- istan' will dissapear under this process of attrition and then settlements will be somewhat more difficult. Oointy BeoordB.
