that, several of the posts have for
months had barely tr.jops enough to
guard the government property.
It is an easy thing to kill Indians
after they are found, and many labo
rious and extended hunts have been
made without even seeing one. Li all
such cases the troops are entitled to as
much credit as if they had found and
killed Indians, as their labors are
more tedious and exhausting.
While we admit that more might
have been effected, we a sk remorseless
critic:.', have we not fairly if not
elaborately stated the case ' And we
may ask wherein they, if in command,
would have improved upon the amount
and character of the work, all circum
stances considered r1 It is one and an

that were not; but to have been an ac
tive participant and consummated j
more and better results, is a vastly dif
ferent job. ,
We do not hold that because a man
is in the military sendee, he is entitled
to any milder criticism than one in
the civil service. Both are public
servants, paid from the common fund,
and officially created by the same
power. In the civil and military ser
vice, there are always some worthless
officers, and always will be, but this
fact does not justify a wholesale de
nunciation of either. Lot criticism be
founded justly and administered as se
verely or favorably as justice demands.
They also recommend that the rec
ords kept in the Recorder's office,
which was made when Pima County
was a part of the Territory of New
Mexico, and are now in a bad condi
tion, without index, &3., shonld be
transcribed into the books provided by
ihe County for that purpose. They
find that the Supervisors have been
careful in tlie expenditure of the
county funds, and they balieve that
the county will be free from debt hi a
very short time.

In accordance with thi3 suggestion.
the restriction of the code was re
moved by act of the Legislature, and
citizens of Jiexican origin, whether
they speak the English language or
not, now sit upon our juries.
Surely Governor McCormick's rec
ord regarding the Mexican population
is all they or their friends could pos
sibly desire, and they were slow to
vote against him although every effort
was made to force them to do so. As
for the report that the Gov. has in any
of his speeches here or in other coun
ties spoken disparagingly of the Mex
icans, we brand them basely and' un
qualifiedly false, and known to be
such by their unprincipled authors.
