OmOIAL PAPER OP 00CHI8B COOHTT England is unquestionably a great nation, her flag floats over the ramparts of the most remote tribes of the earth, but with the grand standing army and her monster gunboats, she cannot, in open violation of decency and civilization enforce her despicable coercion bill. The day has gone past when any- nation can enforce inhuman laws. The world is progressing, and this last backward step in the march of events, will not be tolerated by the civilized powers of the world. - The brickmakers of Denver are out on a strike. The methods of these rest less strikers and their supporters are doing incalculable injury to the country and the laboring men. The Chicago riots and strikes has driven capital to seek investments in western land?.. Capital is timid, and the serious demonstrations and notions transactions of these people has, in a measure, had a wonderful effect upon the growth 'development of California. Men of wealth refuse to be dictated to in the management of their afhirs by men who are in their employ, and in order to avoid disastrous com plications have withdrawn their capital from railroads and such like, and have invested it in lands. The result will be disastrous to large eastern cities 'and a source of great gain to the Pacific slope. Capital will not, nor should not be dic tated to, by any organized' mob, and it never will be. The laborer is worthy of his hire, and between the honest, well meaning workingmen and their employer, there should exist a feeling of respect and friendship. There is a quiet effort being made throughout the Territory by several scheming politicians to boost certain individuals into public office. The 'Epitaph will apprise these schemers in advance, that their plans will fail. The days of party bosses and machine politics has come to an end in Arizona, and in the future the progressive men, men of ability and worth, will mingle in and have a say in tlr afuirs ot our Territory. The last general election demonstrated to a certainty that the days of bosses and ring rule in Arizona was at end. The magnificent majority given to Mark A. Smith and against the machine candidate, spoke out in tones of thunder to these self-constituted leaders. The Epitaph served a timely notice upon these politicians that they were treading upon dangerous ground. Now a few of the moss-back Democrats have combined with a few other imported individuals, and they propose to "run the machine," elect their man to Con gress and have a fine time in general. We shall be an interested looker on whilst this unequal battle is in progress, and will in all probability have some thing to say upon the subject. Mark Smith will be a hard man for these schemers to set aside, and the presump tions arc that Mark will enter a vigorous protest. There is no country under the sun that possesses superior advantages over Southern Arizona as an agricultural country, and chief among the different sections of the Territory possessing these advantages is Cochise county. Take for instance the Sulphur Spring valley, which with an insignificant outlay compared with the benefits derived, could be made a blooming garden. The soil is of the richest quality, and the facilities for irrigation ca'inot be excelled any where. The recent outbursts of water proves conclusively that an abundance of flowing water can be had at a reason able depth, and it only remanis for snme enterprising capitalist to take the matter in hand and demonstrate the practicabi lity of an acknowledged theory. From parties who hive given this matter deep thought, it is estimated that with proper management in the construction of a dam at tha head of the valley and a judicious utilization of the water supply, at least iso.ooq acres of land could bt thoroughly irrigated and placed in a high state of cultivation. The same is true "of other sections in the county, and the Epitaph can see no reason why such an enterprise should not be inau gurated. If tliere is any doubt as to the feasibility of the scheme, why not ex periment in a small scale and prove to the doubting that this country is not only rich in minerals, but also capable of achieving wonders as an agricultural country.

Subsequent torture is pre vented by an immediate resort to Hos tetter's Siomich Bitters. Slight exposure or occasional draught, wjll beget this painful malady, where there is a predis position to it in the blood. 'It is not diffi cult to arrest the tioublc at the outset, but well nigh impossible to eradicate it when matured. No evidence in relation to this superb blood depurent is more positive, than that which establishes its efficacy as a preventive and remedy for rheumatism. Not only is it thorough, but safe, which the vegetable and mineral poisons, ofien tiken as curatives of the disease, are not. Besides expelling the rheumatic virus from the system, It overcomes fever and ague, biliousness, constipation and also dys pepsia.
