Tlie following from the Tomb*
stone Epitaph is but the repetition
of an old story:
"Elias Brown, a well known citi-
zen of Tombstone, returned yester-
day from Fronteras, where he states
that an American named Morgai
I Morgans, Jr., is being held a prisonei
j without any charge ng unst him
| Mr. Morgans' statement to Mr.
1 Brown is that he had purchased
■ 200 head of cattle below Fronteras, I
! and when nearing that place he ha<i
lost seventy-five head. He accused
a Mexican who was working for him
with stealing them, and had him
arrested. The authorities compelled
j Mr. Morgans to pay all the money
he had to support the Mexican, and
allowed him to leave for Tombstone,
where ho could get more. When
about five miles from Fronteras he
was overtaken, badly beaten over
the head with a six-shooter, and
taken back to Fronteras, where he
is now incarcerated. Ilis horse,
saddle and bridla have been appro-
priated by the Mexicans, and being
, without money he is suffering for
•Tames j the necessaries of life. A Texan,

The report that Mr. J. p. Shep-
herd died with yellow fever, is
is calculated to disturb the evuani-
mity of nervous, persons unless all
the facts are known. To place this
managed to escape with the remain-
ing 125 cattle,and they are doubt-
less now in New Mexico, which is
Mr. Morgans' home. Letters were
written to Consul Willard at Otiay-
