LOCAL NOTES. The banquet last evening, was a grand success. t Charley Driscoll arrived in Tombstone yesterday and was warmly greeted by his many friends in this city. Marie A. Smith left fur Phenix yevcr dsy, being called to that city by a tele gram from Ben Goodrich. A bill passed the Connecticut Legisla ture prohibiting employers from dis counting wages advanced to employes be fore day pay. Italians are crowding out the Chinese as gardeners in Califoraia bring better quilifiei (or the business and being fru gal and industrious. Charley Leach will purchase real estate in Phenix, probtbly in connection with Mr. Blinn. Tombstone people are the leading purchasers in Maricopa county at present. George Washington is now in the Vir ginia Pinitentinr, and in the hst year James K. Polk, Henry Clay, John C. Cilhnun, and Daniel Weastcr have been his companions. t In about lour months many of the men who are leaving for pastures new, and invetsing money gained in this camp, will be wending their way back to the old town, not quite so rich, but with a heap of experience. 'Nathan E. Harrelson of Belton Mo., has been sued for breach of promise by Lucy B. Honne a Kentucky Blue-Grass belle, who thinks $15,003 will soothe her wounded heart. She is 22 years old and the Missourian is 86 and he is very wealthy. Ifotight to be eay bedding for the Democratic p-r;y next year. From all accounts the man KissHtie is tho fellow who committed the crimes th-ti have all along been laid at the do r of that his toric organization. Luge cattle ranges will strn be a thing of the past in Arizona. The atten tion of the eastern capitalists are ju t re Inj.iinsctal -ovtrd. our T;rrit ry, an! all the available lands will soon be talcto. An era of good feeling has been ush ered in at Omaha, where the retiring postmaster cat down to a banquet with his successor. It appears that the one was ready to go and nobody ever ques tioned the willingness of the other to step in. A record kept in one of the central counties of Dakota shows but thirty-three d iy when the thermometer was at sero or below. The winter before had fif-y two cold days, the one before that fi fty and that of 1882-83 had ninety-one d tys. The Bru'herhood of Locomotive En gineers has 3m divisions in the United States and Canada, and a membership of about jo.oco. The order is growing very rapidly, and already over 90 per cent of all the engineers of American are members. The great success of Buff do Bill's eft gtgement in London is assured. There is nothing like cartering topeoples pre judices. It is the belief of the mass of the Britishers that the Americans are half Indian and half grisly bear, and the Wild West show is organized on this principle. The Supreme Court of the United 'States finally affirmed the validity l the famous Maxwell grant and certain Hollanders on whom the tract was un loaded will npw gain title to 1,700,000 acres of land. If they have been watch ing the drift of affairs of late, they will sell as soon as they can, as the chances are that the feeling agatnst alien land lordism will presently result in legislation which may have a depressing effect upon ftft. THB TRIPLE LINKS. A Social Gathering of Tombstone's Odd Fellows and Ladies. Yesterday bem the six'y-eig1 th an niversary of the Indi pendent Order of O Id Fellows, Cochise Lodp, follow ng an nliltimecutinn ufthr Ord r, enter tained its member'., their wives and all visiting bro'hers at a binq 'ct at Sc ief felm hall last evening. The spread wa, prepared by the M.iUori D tree, and to sav -that it was a hvish display of tempting e li'lts, is driving it mild. Thi fait u rj-itairait, noed for its fine coiking and extreme good taste in the selections of it-, viands f.ir lilwociStiions, fairly distance J itself upon this occtsinn. The invituions to the members of the Order was responded o by nearly every OJd Fellow in the city, nd with their wives made a large and a very select gathering. The hall and tables were nicely decome.l, an 1 every possi ble preaaratio 1 to mtke t'te binqueta success was male by the om nittee in charge of the a.Ti r. M B. A. Fickis was the mister of ceremonies, and right royally did h perf rm the duty assigned him. Mr. A. L. Grow was the first speaker of ths evening, he spoke in response to the to 1st, " The Order." Mr. Grow, who upon all occasions speaks well and to the point, did the subject credit, as probab y there is not another man in the Territory who is so familiar with the workings of this Order, as is A.L. Gm-v, the Grand M tster of Arizona. Toe next was the toast, "Cochise Lode," by A. V. Smith. Mr. Smithy is a pleasant, flaent speaker, and he handled the subject in a manner which was cre ditable to himself and the Lodge, The next in order was the "Unity Degree Lodge." This delicate subject was handled by Mr. Bradford, and his selec tion for this occasion proved to be a hippy one. Mr. Bradford is an old OJd Fellow and a very intelligent gentlcmtn, and he paid the Rebeccas a very handsoma tribute. "Odds fand Ends," brought to the floir that o'd war h irse of oddfellowship Dav id Cohn who in his usual clear and for cible manner claimed the afention of the gathering f.r several minutes. Mr Cohn' is a very clever speaker and his remtrks list evening were in remirkaole gojd taste. "Sister Lodge" by W. D. Mjimn mier is the orator of the Cochise lolgcandhW mtiterly handling of the sujectwas greeted by well merited applaie. The sinking by Thomas Vin cent and others was splendid but the maateily iflbrt of the occasion was agent' of a p lem by Mrs. D II. McNeil. This, la ly. sh wed talent a- a.i elocutionist of a high order an I the manner in which she rendered the buutiful paein hst evening was pleasi ig as it was surprising. Mr. Etward Hjtop, nude the gall int res ponse "to thi ladies." Mr. Hotup being a great favorite with the fair st-x, this duty was a very pl.-asinj one to him ami he pud the f lif ones some very hand some and telling c implim nts. Mr. M r ins singing was superb. Wmt of time and space prevents us for further men tioning the pleasaut affair. fJLll Briok Swindle. An Ovl Tanks, N. M , dispatch to the Sun says: The great fi.'ld "tor the gold brick swindlers is at present in the south west. The bricks arc mtie by a man mmd Biggs, who lives in D.nver. They are ch;ap affairs, made of a com position covered with thick gold paint. He sells the ordinary s zed bricks for $375 each. Since the first of the year three of those bricks hive been disposed of by one man to Marshall, a stortke. per oTC'Vihuahua, Mix., for Si ,900; one to a well known Mexican at Paso del Norte, f r $7,200, and another to an Arizona ranchman nuned Tysoi, for $,500. The operator is well known at El Paso, Tex , and cin be constantly seen playing faro in a ranch saloon on El Pa-o trect. He belonged to the same outfit that sold the gold brick to Senator Dorsey for $40,000. Maricopa County. Dr. G. E. Goodfillow returned yester day from Phenix, He says he has been attending Johnny Bchan, and when he left Mr. Behan was recovering, and that unless some great change has occurred in the list twenty-four hours, he is all rignt. He is suffering from an abcess in his side, but the Doctor thinks he is alt safe. Dr. Goodfellow has also dabbled in the general rush for Maricopi county land, and he laughingly told an EPITAPH reporter that he expected to "go broke in the business." Notwithstanding his assertion, the genial Doc.or don't believe it, he is a sharp business man, and he will undoubtedly reap a harvest in the valley of tho sale ODE POSITION. We Do Not Desire" ts Interfere in Courts of Justice. The everlasting twiddle of .1 contem porary about Berry and his land frauds are getting 5o.newhat stale in UiU com munity, as.,f Jr o jr part we are llinn' 10 an iw tne courts 01 1 ne territory to ucciuc issues submitted to then) for their deci sion. We have no interest in Ju.lge Bsrij's success in his land suits, other than to see justice done to ill concerned! Tiittse matters luvc long since been taken to the courts for th.ir action and pending a decision, no decent j mrnal would dis cuss the issues, we h ive.au, iqrj, honor able Judge in this district, and to his ftirness and knowledge of eqiitv, ue are willing to submit. We do nt, either uphold Judge Berry nor defame tinn, as we have before said, it is purely a q ies lion for our courts to determine, lithe settlers on the Mountain Maid desire to resist the title, the courts is the on'y place in which it can be done. A su 1 for this purpose has been instituted and is now pending, and the Epitaph is in hopes that justice will be dune. Judge Beiry has nothing to do with the man agement of this paper, Mr. C. S. Abbott and its present manager, are the uvner$ and managers of its columns, and the affairs of Mr. Berry are in no wise mingled in our business. Our dealings with Judge Berry have been agreeable and fair, and the Epitaph shall nut take it upon itself to abuse him nor any o her tun for matters which the courts alone have power to adjudicate. We, as well as all other citizens, deplore the ever lasting conflicts which have from lime to time arose upon titles to real property in this city, but further than see absolute justice meted out to all parties, we have no intetest. No man nor set of men can contiol our columns, we will speak plainly upon all subjects in which the people have an interest, but as to inter fcring with courts of justice, we never snail. Oholera in Qnaymas. Cholera to an alarming extent it is said is raging at Guaymas, five deaths recently occurred at that place, three oj the bodies being cremated to prevent the spread of this dread disease. In a conversation with Dr. Goodftllov he have it as his opinion that should the Cholera prevail at Guaymas it would be a difficult matter to prevent its reaching Tombstone. If this be the case our authorities should take immediate steps to. prevent its reaching this city. The health of our citizens is uhat shou'd be first aitended to, no matter what the cost may be. Notwithstanding the fact that Governor Torres denies that the Cholera exists in Sonora. Parties direct from Guaymas say it is there and that several deaths have recenty occured there from the disease. Irish Humor "Passive resistance" in Ir;'and has some humor. At ,8 tllysimoe near Limerick fourty-four head of catt'e were advertised to be sold for non-payn.ent of rent. Proceeded hy two donkeys, devi ated with gay ribbons, the caule were driven into Limerick followed by a gre it crowd of jolly, boisterous people. The auctioneer fearing the unmerciful guying of the multitude refused to perform his office. The Sheriff was appealed to, and he also declined. Had a seller bten found it is mortal.)' certain there wuld have been no buyers. After a vain at tempt to get an auctioneer ihe sale was abandoned, and the cattle proceeded by thf ir couriers and fo lowed by the rollick ing rabble, were driven baot to the de faulting tenants. Judge Barnes. Judge Barnes and his excellent wife gave a party to their friends in Tucson at their new residence, which was beauti fully decortted with flowers for the o-casion. The many warm friends of our able, conscientious Judge, in this city extend their gold wishes to the genial couple in their new honw on the banks of the Santa Cruz, and trust that life's jurney will be made pleasant among neir newly made friends in Arizona The EPITAPH, recognizing the sterling qualities of Judge Barnes as a judicial officer and an honorable citizjn, heartly joins in the wish. There is a possibility that the Presi dent is felicitating himself on the happy effect of the interstate commerce ltw in thinning out office seekers at the capital before.he is fairly out of the woods. De prived of a pass, it will take the office seeker a little longer to get to Wash ington, but when he reaches town he will stay, Unnecessary Hisory. Probably as much misery conies from habitual constipvion as from any dc rangeuient of the functions of the body, ar.d it is difficult to cure, for the reason that no one likes to take the mfdicitvs usually prescribed.
