Entered in the Tonbstone pitofio u sc- ond class matter. OFFICIAL PAPER OP OOCHISZ COUHTT Governor Zulick favored the EPITAPH with an avertisement yesterday, for which we return our thanks. Old" Washington Territory hasn't any Jvantaze over our own progressive Bbntry, when-it comes down to spUd-ff shaking. It is said W. L. Scott, of Erie, Pa., employs no less than 10,000 men in and about his many coal mines. This woald make him the largest individual employer in the coal industry of the world. It is impossible for men to commit robbery in this Territory, at the present time, and escape the meshes of the law. The large rewards offered, coupled with the wonderful facilities of the present century in apprehending offenders, makes it an impossibility for this class of citi zens to escape. Mrs. Jones received a letter from her husband, A. T. Jones, yesterday dated at Florida. Al says that he had a convex sation with Geronimo, and that old sinner expressed a desire to have the govern ment set aside lands for himself and band in the State of Florida, and permit them to make that country their home. The old Apache said that he had had enough ol Arizona, and if he ever came back tu this country it would be against' his urgent and determined protest. We draw a sigh of relief and repeat that the wish is heartly reciprocated by our people. Stay there Mr. Geronimo, and the citizens of Arizona will forever kindly remember you and yours at a dis tance. Next Sunday morning the EPITAPH will resume the issuance of its weekly edition and will continue there after to issue each week similar edition made up from the Daily Epitaph. Sunday's paper will contain ew-acsounuifthe-eftrthy TtomtTfVMrtfjTreirron the-com--- quake, and parties desiring extra copies will confer a favor by leaving their orders at the office. It will be a seven-column paper and will be made the best general newspaper in the Territory, suited alik! to the business man, the rancher and the family circle. Persons desiring a first-class weekly county paper cannot fail to realize the superior advantages of the Weekly Ppitaph over any other published in Southern Arizona, and we hope to meet with a liberal patronage at the hands of the reading public, assuring them that they will get value received for their money. General Wharton, Inspector general, of the land office, arrived in Tombstone yesterday on a hurried trip from Tucson. General Wharton is no stranger to Ari zona. As long ago as 1848, he passed through this Territory, and every few years since, he has paid Arizona a visit. He is an intimate friend of com missioner Sparks, and has labored faith fully to carry out his land office policy. We can say that Mr. Wharton has thus far proved an able ally of the honest old commissioner. General Hise, has also an efficient assistant and friend in Mr. Wharton, who rendered valuable assis tance and information in proving to the world, the fraudelent character of the Tres Alamos land grant. The settlers of Arizona, feel kindly to General Wharton, and the corps of honorable men who are conducting tne una oince Dusiness in the Tenitory. The fact of McGoffin, appointing Mr. Hambleton, to a position in the service, .iuglit not-In justice to Hambleton mili tate against him, If there is any one to blamoit is McGoffin. Aside from the unfortunate killing, the gentleman bears a splendid reputation. And the crystal ization of public opinion against him s to be regretted. The Epitaph is unaltera bly opposed to border bullying 'We have contempt for men who draw 'their guns and attempt to assassinate their fel low man on the slightest provocation. And we cheerfully endorse the strong re lentless method mtted out to these peo ple by the courts of our Territory. Some times, in the course of lifes troubles, it be comes necessary to take life in order to preserve our own. But these are rare occasions, and when they do occur the man should be promptly acquitted for the act. Self defense is natures highest law, and if Mr. Hambleton killed the deceas ed, in order to protect his own life as is mantainedin the court by the defendant's counsel, we trust th,at he will be acquitted j WORLD'S NEWS.

The reason he did not make this state ment when he reached Amherstberg was that he heped that some ef the crew might have possibly escaped in the small boats, and he hesitated about reporting the loss of the vessel for fear of causing unnecessary anguish to those who had relatives aboard. TIm hKk at Cnsnau, Special l thi Er-ITArH. GUAYMAS, Mex., May 4. At 2:45 yes terday afternoon two earthquakes were felt here with short intervals lasting a few seconds. The direction was east and west. No damage is reported so far though, all the clocks stopped running. Similar shocks were felt along the line of the Sonora Railroad. - The following is from.. the agent at Torres -Station; "One minute after the first quivering sensation the highest cliff of the Chevata mountain fell causing a cloud of dust to rise like smake from an explosion ef a large amount of powder. From the statian it had 'the appearance of a vol canic eruption." A!fctsrtM Ifcakrm, Special to tk EriTAm. Albuquerque, N. M., May 4. At 3:13 yesterday afternaon the entire com munity was startled by two distinct but almost contineus vibrations of earth quake the vibratianr of which was from East to West and continued for 10 sec-. onds, clocks in all parts of the city were stopped, chandelers vibrated and the plate glass windows ia the lit National Bank building were cracked, men and women rushed into the streets and horses were frightened. Men unhitched their teams and hurredly tied them an ay, looking up wards at the building, as if they expected they were about to topple over. Many parsons complained of a feeling of sea sickness. In Oldtovvn the people were terror stricken and many of the men fear ed new eruptures from the extinct crater near here. THE COURT WAS IN SESSION in the new Court house, occupied for the first time yesterday. Those in the Court thought th structure was about to fall and a stampede was made, the judge hurriedly adjourned court and the officers joined in the rush. The shock appears to be general throughout the southwest. Reports have been received indicating that it was more severely at El Paso than here. At SanMarcial two distinct shocks were felt, and the alarm was great at Lakerville 20 miles south, the two shocks were felt with vibrations from east to west continuing S seconds and the time was reported at 3:12. A Brcadnal ExpIaiUn. VICTORIA, B. C, May 4. A Nanaimi special to theColonlst jays: A terrible explosion occurred in a shaft of the Victoria coal mines, a few nvles from there, at S o'clock last night. There were supposed to be about 150 men in the mines at the time. Twelve bodies have been recovered, some dead and some seriously injured, and sopie badly burned, agd little hopes of the recovery of any who are alive are entertained. The rescuing party went down but were un able to do much, as they were overcome by black damp and forced to return. Oae of the rescuing party, S. Hudson, died shortly after coming out of the mine. The fire engine was brought out and warned and saved some of the adjoining buildings. The scene around the shaft was of the most heartrending description. The griel of those whose husbands, fathers and relatives are in the doomed mine is beyond portrait. LAltR -Fifteen dead and alive have been recovered from the shaft. WJatac uk.
