BOUND TO WIN.
An Arizona Publisher Who Oan Be In
Thp.re is no use in attcmDtinirto
di?guise the fact that certain rings
nnd factions in this culoh have,
for the last three months, made
desperate attempts to ignore tne
existence of the Kicker. Having
failed to frirrhten or Dribe us,
ostracism was their little game.
They determined to freeze us out.
"We first became aware of this
movement three months ago, when
Airs. J uage tjiiaersieeve gave ner
blowout. At the same time wo re
ceived the following card:
: All Gentlemen Attending This
I liEOKFTION WlLL Be EXPECTED
: To Weak a White Siiibt.
The inference was as plain as
the Simples on Mrs. Judge Gilder
sleeve's nose. They thought we
hadn't a white shirt. They thought
we'd attend with an army blanket
thrown carelessly over our shoul
ders. The object was to let us
know that Mrs. Gildersleeve didn't
look upon us as knowing what be
longed to manners. It was all
right. We didn't go. As to
whether the Gildersleeve ring
came out ahead, opinions differ.
Our account of the party, headed
"Gathering of Vultures," is still
going the rounds of the press. In
that article we proved Judge
Gildersleeve to be an embezzler
and a horse-thief, and we adduced
positive evidence that Mrs. Judge
was a broken-down and played
out fortune-teller, who had been
compelled to skip from St. Louis.
The judge called at the Kicker
office tho next day with a shotgun,
but when wo brought out more
letters proofs that he had served
time in three prisons, and that
Mrs. Judge still had the workboase
cut on her hair when she arrived
in Arizona, the Judge didn't shoot.
The Jackas3 Hill set next tried
to make us sing small. They got
mad because we weren't puffing
them in every issue. Colonel
Docker had 2 shillings' worth of
repairs made to his mule harness
and tho Kicker didn't notice it.
Mrs. Professor Frothingham turned
an old silk dress top-to-bottom,
and the Kicker didn't como out
with a notice that sho had received
another $500 dress from Worth.
Major Hornblower put a porccUiu
door-knob on the front door of his
abode, arjd tho Kicker didn't come
out and list it as one of the enter
prises bound to bring in new set
tlers and boom real estate. It was,
therefore, determined to down us.
Lily de Lisle, the red-headed
daughter of tho one-legged county
clerk, made her debut, and we
were not invited to the blowout.
It was an action intended to break
our heart, and wo promptly coun
tered. It was on our tip that the
sheriff went up about 10 o'clock
that evening and gathered in two
bigamists from New England, an
embezzler from Ohio and a fugi
tive from Chicago, all of whom
were looked upou as the cream of
society, and were airing their frills
and scallops at the grand debut
"We are hero to staj We put
up our shanty with our own hands.
Wo board and lodge ourself, and
we have not only got the cost of
living down so fine, but are get
ting our whito paper so cheap that
we can make money on a list of
thirty subscribers nnd three, pages
of dead ads. We are going to run
the Kicker after our own style,
whether it pleases the big bugs on
Jackass Hill or the half-starved
coyotes in Poverty Hollow. While
wo don't hanker after invitations
to euchre partios and church so
cials, we don't propose to take a
snub from any set. While wo are
willing to boom tho town, we don t
propose to sit up nights to let the
outside world know that some cit
izen has added a bathtub to his
dugout, or that some merchant has
just received a fresh wad of bed
ticking. There have been hints thrown
out by the court house ring that
we are o be starved out. Try "it
on, gentlemen. We are now S15
ahead of the ''game, have paper
enough on hand for ten weeks, and
our living expenses last week only
looted up b cents. ve came to

LOOKING TOE STANLEY.
London, May7. The directors
of the African association have
sent an order to Stanley Falls to
send out a scouting party in search
of Stanley and to push the expe
dition with all possible speed. Al
though the promoters of the Stan
ley expedition declare in their
public utterances that they will
have no cause for alarm, even if
no news of tho famous explorer
reaches them for three months,
their tone in private is full of
great anxiety. A. dispatch from
Major Barlellot, commander of
tho camp at Arruwimi to Colonel
Winter urges the immediate com
pletion of a caravan to look for
Stanley. Tippo Tib promised GOO
men for this purpose, but only 250
have arrived. Major Bartellot has
sent Prof. Jamison, the naturalist,
on an expedition to Kasong to col
lect men and stores and return to
Arruwimi, and as soon as enough
have been obtained to fill the re
quired number for a scaroh party
and a guard at the camp. Ma
jor Bartellot will start. It is ex
pected that this Stanley search ex
pedition will start about the first
