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

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,

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.

reporter that he expected to "go broke

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

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.
