Several slight shockb of earthquake were felt at different intervals yesteday." Bob Winders.has gne to Nogales wnere he will remafn lissome time. "Pinkeys" orignal earthquake joke was the source of considerable amuse ment yesterday, The train dispatcher at Benson says: A volcanic eruption is reported eighteen miles south west of Nogales. 0. H. Christy, of Phenix, was among yesterday's arrivals and is domiciled at the Occidental. Rev. Thomas W. Haskins left yester day for Los Angeles whether he goes for medical treatment. Thomas Pidwell, had his broken leg set by Dr. Willis, yestesday and is rest ing quite comfortable. The house of Thomas Dunbar, at Tres Alamos, was very much wrecked by the heavy shock of earthquake. It behooves all members of the Rescue '.Hose Company, to attend the special mieeting of the company this evening. It begins to look as though the Arirona cattlemen would succeed, in es tablishing a trail to Montana and Wyom ing. Trouble is brewing in the fire depart ment. The self constituted mouthy leaders will succeed in disrupting that useful institution. Johnie Patton thinks he was awful sly, but he is restectfully informed that his Inclinations were known to more than one individual in this city. It is also reported that a volcano has developed at Seirra Campo, a mountain situated in the city of Hermosillo. And that much damage was done by the late earthquake. There are twenty-one prisoners in the county jail which fact speaks well for the vigilance of Sheriff Slaughter. Criminals will soon learn that they cannot operate in this county unmolested. W. P. McComas, of Bisbee, came over from that village yesterday. He says that the shock of Tuesday's was quite severe there, but that no damage was done. Governor Zulick, made an admirable appointment in the person ofC. M. Bruce as Sanitary Commissioner. Mr. Bruce, is a thorough cattleman, and a gentleman as well. Willcox was in hopes that the recent shake would make a rent between it, and Tombstone, which would be. impassible. We are of the opinion that nothing short of an earthquake, will ever segregate that burg from Tembstone. ROBBERS CAPTURED. The Four Train Kobbars Captured at Bowie by Marshal Meade. United States Marshal Meade passed Benson Monday evening having in his custody three of the men who robbed the train near Pantano. Mr. Meade also told a prominent railroad official that he had the other one located, and could place his hands on him at any time. The three men were captured at Bowie Station, and proved to be three well known railroad men, and the fourth is also said to be a former employe of the Southern Pacific. James Barrock, was a conductor on the A. & N. M. railroad, running into Mexico. Barrock has al ways been regarded as a boisterous individual, but was never regarded in the light of a highwaymen. The next is a man by th& name of Cusack, at one time a fireman on the road, and the other is known by the title of "Red." Barrock was given whisky freely en route to Tucson in order to draw something damaging from him, and it is reported that he talked freely upon the subject. Cusack, or Swain, as he is known by many, has, it is thought, turned states ev'dence against his companions, and has made a complete disclosure of the entire transaction. Marshal Meade says that he has ample testimony to secure a conviction of the whole gang. Mr. Meade his labored like a Trojan to capture and bring to justice these men, and his sterling qualities as an officer both vigilant and courageous was dis played in the capture and pursuit of these rascals. The EPITAPH has always main tained that Mr. Meade was the most efficient and competent Marshal Arizona has ever had, and his actions in this matter proves conclusively that the administration made no mistake in his appointment. The Epitaph extends the t'u.n'is of the people of Arizona tp Marshal Meade for his prompt and energetic action in this matter. Wedding Ohimes. Yesterday afternoon at the residence of the bnijs's m'ber, Mrs. J. S. Robin son, was celebrated the nuptials of Mr. J. J. Patton and Mrs. Edith Lowrey, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. G. L. Pearson. The groom is one of Tombstone's most solid business men and has always enjoyed the reputation of being one of the most honored citizens. He has been a resident of the Territory for ten years, during which time he has made many warm friends who will re joice to know that he has secured one of God's best gifts to man a lovely wife. The beautiful young bride was one of Tombstone's fairest jewels, possessing all the qualities that go toward fitting woman for her sphere of usefulness, both in the society and family circles. No doubt there are many stout hearts in this city, whose rapid beats will inspire the thought that "would it were mine to call you wife," but who will have to content themselves with the sad words, "it might have been." The Epitaph congratulates the happy couple in the realization of their fondest hopes and wishes them a long and useful life with no sorrows and all the deserving sweets of well mated affection. The Shake at St. David. From P. A. Lofgreen of St. David who was in the city yesterday, the Epitaph gained the following information relative to the earthquake in that section. The shock was very severe lasting fully three minutes and destroying a number of buildings, among others the school house which is a complete wreck. As luck would have it the school was not in ses sion at the time thus averting the serious comcquences that would have resulted Irom the fallling walls. Mr. Lofgreen says that the belfry of the house looked as though it inclined as much as six or eight feet in its swayings and the found ation of the building was moved several inches. The water in the canals was thrown entirely out. All the buildings in the community were more or less dam aged but none so completely as the schoolhouse. The Trustees were com pelled to adjourn the school until another house could be provided. They came to town yesterday and laid the matter be fose county Superintendent Monk who instructed them to take immediate steps to secure other quarters. Great excite ment pievailed. The inhabitants refusing to sleep indoors, so great were the fears of a repitition of the shock. Mr. C. M. Bruce, will start for Prescott Friday in answer to a summons from Governor Zulick, to be present Monday next, for the organazation of the board I of Sanitary Stock Commissioners. THE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. A Cheap Trail To a Splendid Cat tle Market. The committee appointed by the Tombstone Stock Growers Association to consider the advisability and practibility of making a trail to Montana and Wyom ing, consisting of Sheriff Slaughter, Brew ster Cameron, and C. M. Bruce, these gentlemen held a meeting yesterday and submitted the following report: Hon. I V. Vickers, President Tomb stone Stock growers Association of Co chise county, Arizona. Sir: Your committee, appointed to inquire into the feasibility of establishing a cattle trail from this Territory to the ranges of Wyoming and Montana beg to submit ihe following report: During the past four weeks we have carefully examined into the question of establishing a trail, upon information re ceived from absolutely trustworthy sourc es, we respectfully state that a cattle trail from Arizona to Wyoming and Montana is entirely practicable, there being an abundance of grass and water along the route, where the rights of set tlers will not be encroached upon. It will require about two months to locate the trail and the approximate cost will be one thousand dollars, as fol lows to wit: Services of two experienced men to lo cate trail for 60 days, each at $3 per day $ 360 00 Purchase of five horses at $40 each 200 00 Hire of packer 60 days 8000 Provisions 100 00 Barley on route for horses 60 00 The fare of three men returning home 20000 Incidental expenses 100 00 . Si 100 00 Less amonnt received for horses at end of trail 100 00 Approximate cost $1000 00 As a trail would inure alike to the benefits of all the cattlemen of the Terri tory, we FespectfCtty-suggest that the sev eral local associations in Arizona be re quested to pay an equal share of the ex pense, there being seven associations in Territory, the tax upon each would be comparatively light. We therefore rec comend that a committee be appointed to represent to the several county and local associations of the Territory, the great importance to the live stock inter ests of Arizona of establishing a cattle trail to the north, and to solicit their aid and co-operation to that end. It is essential that the trail be located before the coming winter, for the northern buyers start cattle on the trail about the first of February. The trail should also be located as early as practicable, so that a map of the same can can be submitted to the cattle men of the north and buyers be solicited to come here and purchase in time for the drive in 1888. Your committee are confident that the superior class of cattle in Arizona and their entire freedom from disease would insure a constant demand forsteers at re munerative prices, were a proper trail established to the fattening ranges of the north. Very Restpectfully C. M. Bruce. John Slaughter. Brewster Cameron. G. W. Atkins, went down to Charles ton yesterday, returning the same day. He says that burg is the most woe be gone looking place he ever saw, there not being a single habitable house in the place, and the people are forced to take refuge wherever they can find it. None of the houses are thrown down, but they are so badly damaged as to render them dangerous. The people are greatly ex cited fearing a repetiton of the shock. They say that looks as though the name of Charleston, was an unlucky one and and that they think Charleston A. T. will almost baliance Charleston S. C. Capt. W. H. Lawton and Lieut. Irwin, of Fort Huachuca, were in the city yes terday. They say that the post hospital was considerably damaged andthatsome of the walls will have to be rebuilt. Captain Lawton informed the reporter that he will seon go to Sonora to assume control of a large body of land recently purchased there by himself and a com pany of capitalists. The Epitaph hopes that the gallant Captain may reap a rich reward from his possessions in the land of God and liberty. Parties from Charleston yesterday in formed the Epitaph that not a single residence in that village is habitable since Tuesday's earthquake. Many of the houses are completely ruined, fortunately no ont was hurt. County Records. The following documents were filed in the County Recorder's office yester day: Locations.

We the undersigned members of the Rescue Hose Company, respectfully re quest that a special meeting of this com pany be held May 5th 1887, at 7:30 o'clock p. m. to take action in reference to the departure of chief Tribolet, with the badge of the fire department. Frank Ryan, J. J. Muntz, J. H Camp bell, C. Knapp, A. Tuquet, J. O. Dunbar, Ben. Hyde, and others. It was whispered about the city last evening, that the "firemen" had held an impromtu meeting at Fairbank yester day, and superinduced by Jerry Barton's "bracer" proceeded to make Chief Trib olet a present of the firemans badge. Major J. E. Montanden, of Benson' was in the city yesterday circulating among his numerous friends. The Major is always a welcame visitor to Tombstone and the Epitaph would be pleased to see him oftener. Mrs. Fred Smith is seriously ill at Tuc son and fears as to her recovery are en tertained. Her many friends in this city hope howevever that these fears are un founded and that she may be spared to spend many more days of usefulness among them. The Mexicans arrested some days since on a charge of robbing a chinaman near Fairbank were arranged yesterday before justice Shearer and upon motion oths Diatnct Attorney were discharged, the evidence not being deemed sufficient to warrant their further detention.
