omCIAL PAPER OF C30HI3K COUNTY
The Indiana Democrat who has re

his sal.uy for March amouuted to less

Dead Se.i fruit. He bad been a candidate
for that position for rrnny years.
They are putting the question of pro
hibition rather pointedly in Texas.
" Shall Texans go without whiskey?"
asks a newspaper, which then proceeds
to explain the awlul meaning of the issue.
Texas without whisky would be an ex

The Governor lia made the following
appoin'ments for Sanitary Commis
sioners, under the recent quarantine law
pts-ed by the Legislature: Thnrms
lUlleck, of Mohave county, Henry Smith
of Ap iche.county, a id C. M. Bruce, of
Cochise. We are not acquainted with
the first named gentlemen, but as to Mr.
Bruce, hit appointment will give great
sitisfaction to the people of Cochi-e
county, ptrticulatly the cattlemen. The
Epitaph .congratulates the Governor
upon the selection of Mr. Bruce.
There is.ln Chicago idle, at the present
time, upwards ol $200,010,000, and the
capitalists of that growing city arc look
ing westward with a view of investing.
The Chemical Bank, alone, of that city,
has $70,000,000, which must, under the
condition of the depositors, long since
dead, be invested in real estate. These
vast accumulated millions will eventually
find their way to this weitern coast, and
Arizona is. destined to share in the dis
tribution. iMining investments are almost
at a standstill, and men of means are
running wild over lands in the west.
Never before in the history of the world
has theretbeen such a land boom, it is
reaching far into the sunny clime of
Mexico, and where it will end no man
can tell. The millions of surplus have
been locked upin the iron vaults oi the
country for years; but the temptation
to bring it forth and invest in lands is too
strong to be r esisted, and the conse
quence is .that the money is scattered
broadcast throughout the'State of Cali
fornia, and is gradually finding its way
to the Territory of Ari: na.
There is a twaddling little chipptr in
Phenix who is constantly tooting his
little whistle, and strange, the little
"critur" at times directs his popgun in
thclirection of Tombstone, surrounded
as he is, by all that makes mankind
joyous and happy, green trees, blooming
orchards ind a growing, prosperous
community. It seems as though this
specimen would take a casual glance at
the beautiful valley which surrounds the
pretty little city of Phenix, and once

Washington, Apnl 20, In reply to
bishop Knickerbocker, ot Imlianipoli",
who enpuire 1 as t the ri 'ht of railway
to transport mi sin iriesat special rites,
the commission writes that it his no
pow er in the matter. There is no doubt.',
Judge Cooley adds, "in the right of
railroads to grant special privileges 10
religious teachers and deciding good flit
what they can do, thy can scarcely be
said to incur the risk of pe nl y." Re
plies of similar purport have been made
to enquires with respect to the transpor

John Donenhower, the artic explorer
shot and killed himself at the Naval Ac
amedy to-day. He had mental trcuole
after he came back from the artic regions
He was found lying on his rug in front of
the fireplace with a tag tied to his button-
bole, "tend mt to ray brothtr at Wash- j
ngton." Althought he has had mental
trouble since he returned from the artic
reigons; what immediatiy led to the sui
cide is thought to have been the recent
on its way to Noifolk which he had
charge of, and ior which it is supposed
he had a fear of being court martialed.
furthermore he was very intimate with
young Robert M. Gatewood, who recently
commited suicide in Carolina and whom
he saw in death. It Is supposed this
death suggested the mode to him. His
wife formerly a Miss Sloan of New York,
is away with her parents. Lieutenant
Donenhower, leaves two children. He
was about 35 years aid and an intelligent
and polished officer.

San Francisco, April 30, Queen
Kaproluni of the Hawaiian kingdom arri
ved this morning from Honolulu on the
steamer Australia. She was accompan
ied by the Princess Ledino Kalani and a
number of high officials of the Hawaiiam
government. The principal object of the
queen's visit is to be present at Qneen
Victoria's jubilee celebration in London
on June 20th., the Loyal party will re
main about a week when they will leave
for Washington to pay their respects to
the President and Mrs Cleveland, after a
short stay therejat the Capital they will
proceed to New York thence to London,
Before returning the Queen will also vis
it some of the principal cities of the world
as she has not been outside of her king
DIm U the Front.
Laredo, April 20. This country is in
the throes of another Presidential elect
ion, and every .indication points to the
fact that Diaz, is a candidate for re-elect-tion
notwithstanding that the constitu
tion of the country strictly prohibits a
second term. President Diaz, is a com
plete master of the situation, and will
undoubtedly have the constitution am
ended, so as to permit him, to succeed
himself. The people in this section are
much excited at the present stati of
affairs. The army and State governors
are all tools of the President, and stand
ready with loaded muskets to enforce
his bidding. The Mexicans are patient
people, as a general thing, but this No
vation on the established laws of their
country, is very trying to their loyalty.
Several serious quarrels have already
occured oyer the pending election, aid
it is feared that bloodshed well be the
result of the preseat bad feeling.
