JSaturaay, - Oct. 14, 1JS71.
Our correspondent under date of
September 29th, states that the people
of-northern Sonora have been scourged
by the Apaches " until the moan of
" despair comes to our ears on all
"sides for lathers, sons, brothers,
"mothers, sisters and children raur
" dered in cold blood by the red devils
such as Colyer thinks can becivil
" ized and Christianized."
Generally the country -was quiet,
but revolutionary parties, in the State
of Sinaloa, under one Cafiedo were
making some trouble and meeting
with a little success, though the State
authorities feel able to quell all law
lessness. Cauedo had captured one
mail and attacked some towns and
Iriarte is captured. Sonora feeling
the danger, is preparing for any con
flict which may arise.
A PRIVATE soldier at Crittenden has
been inspired to indite a lengthy poem
on Cachise's raid on that post and
theft of cavalry horses some weeks ago.
The poem has some merit locally
considerable ; but at present our space
must not be occupied by the labors of
the muses. By and by we may find
room for such inspirations, and injthc
meantime shall hold the manuscript
subject to the author's order. "Wo hope
he will furnish The. Citizen the cur
rent local news in a plain, concise
All our correspondents will please
bear in mind that there is one great
and overshadowing question, vitally
affecting the welfare of Arizona, now
prominent before the whole country.
If the sadly farcical policy of "Vincent
Colyer prevails here, we frankly
admit our belief that many years of
bloodshed by cruel savages are still
in sfnrp. for Arizona, and to avert this
to devote the larger share of our
space while the danger continues. We
are printing hundreds of extra papers
and distributing them at our own ex
pense to journals and public men, in
the hope that our fair and truthful
statements may in some measure
awaken a true sentiment abroad, and
finally, before too late, influence those
in power to act justly toward this long
Buffering people. Personal wishes
and considerations must for the present
take a secondary place in these col
umns. 44 Pacific Rukal Press." This is
a 16-page, weekly publication devoted
to agricultural and all like pursuits
and interests. It is published by
Dewey & Co., at 338 Montgomery
street, San Francisco, at $4 per year ;
2 50 for 6 months; 1 50 for
months. Clubs of ten or more can have
it at S3 Ter annum. The Rural Press
is neatly printed with bold type.
As a rule, we refuse to recommend
our readers to buy any book or subscribe
for any particular paper, but we em
phatically say that the farmers of
Arizona will do well to invest a few
dollars in the Rural Press. It covers
the whole range of subjects applicable
to Arizona, and if our well informed
farmers and stock growers would com
municate their experiences direct to
that paper, we have no doubt but it
would give this Territory a liberal
share of attention ; and we assure our
agricultural friends here that a little
effort on their part as we suggest will
abundantly repay them. Without the
slightest selfish motive except for Ari
zona, we advise farmers to subscribe
for the Rural Press and write to it
Let the free people of the United
States understand that on the 13th day
of September, Indian Commissioner
Vincent Colyer caused the guns of a
United States Military Post to be
turned upon peaceable, law-abiding
citizens of the United States.
When a citizen or citizens assassin
ate mail carriers, rob or destroy the
mails, waylay peaceable and law
abiding men in government service, or
people generally on her territory and
under the national flag, the United
States has quite uniformly punished
or endeavored to punish them, and
many such are to-day serving out
terms of imprisonment therefor, or are
in some way curtailed of Ordinary
civil rights. The Apache Indians of
Arizona are now and have been within
a few months, repeatedly guilty of the
aforementioned crimes, and for weeks
past the United States or Vincent
Colyer in the name of the United
States has been expending large
sums of the people's money to secure
interviews with these murderers and'
robbers with the sole view of assuring
them of the government's immediate
readiness to richly reward them, and
that they shall thereafter be protected
by the public guns, fed and clothed at
the public expense, and to demonstrate
to them that the greater the robber
and murderer, the more munificent
rewards he would receive if he be an
How is this for national honor and
Indian Peace Agents travel about
over Arizona under strong escorts of
armed troops, and have public money
placed at their disposal to sate the
greed of the Apaches and induce them
to not commit outrages upon said
Agents. Citizens cannot have escorts
to protect them, nor can they afford to
give up what little property they have
to induce the Indian to not kill or rob
them. The Indian Agents being per
fectly secure in their persons and have
only government property in their
possession, they report the Indian
peaceably disposed ; the citizens being
ever insecure in both person and prop
erty, and constantly seeing neighbors
killed or robbed or" both, report the In
dians hostile. Under the circum
stances, whose reports are most cer
tainly truthful ?
Miguel's Coyotcrd Apaches have
been true to their pledges of pece
and friendship; Es-cul-ta-see-la's. have
by acts of theft and murder violated
all their promises ; the former though
very poor and needy, received scarce
ly any of the government's bounty
at the hands of Colyer, and the latter
were magnificently supplied in com
parison. Miguel observes the fact
that the worst Indians are treated best
by government, and says that while
the people generally are terrible ene
mies of the worst Indians, the gov
ernment is the bes!; friend of such.
Miguel judges the government by the
acts of Vincent Colyer.
We have a certain admiration for
officers of the United States who say
Vincent Colyer's course is not the bes
for the people, but that it is better fot1
to offend him, because he has power .to
wield and money to spend, and as
long as he is so provided, they want
to make a share of the protits. jV
can't refrain from admiring such pat
"Make a note on't." So far as
our observation extends, every man
in Arizona disposed to cringe to Yin
cent Colyer, is of the patriotic few
who declare the Territory is so desti
tuto of natural resources that nvhito
population could exist herein wIHjput
military disbursements even if t
Indians were all inoffensive.
The mass of the citizens of Ari
zona would be overjoyed at a certain
peace with the Indians. With peace
and safety guaranted, they will freely
say " Take the troops away if wo
can't make ourselves prosperous on
the natural merits of the Territory,
with a free, safe opportunity, avc will !
make no complaints ; but we want to
make one unobstructed trial."
Mr.. Arris's train is awaitinj
escort to Camp Apacho.
We have no doubt from the manner in
which the information readies us that
this bloodthirsty Apache bus come in to
the reservation at Canada Alamosa.
So says The Borderer of the 4th
instant, and presuming the statement
to be true, even'' the Peace Policy men
shoull preserve their consistency of
argument by promptly causing this
chief of terrible murderers to be
promptly arrested, tried and hung.
Of his guilt, no one doubts. If where
stated, he must be fed at public ex
pense and according to Vincent Col
yer's programme, must also be clothed
Now if Cachiso is on that Reserve
and is permitted to remain there un
punished, then the law against murder
and torture should be abolished. Is
it possible that such a boasted and well
known murdering highwayman and
assassin is to bejjd, clothed and pro-
tecieci Dy apoweriuigoveriiiHuui.ciuiui-
ing to deal in the article called justice ?
Will a great government unques
tionably furnished protection and
maintenance to acknowledged mur
derers simply because the murderers
are Indians ? Vincent Colyer made it
do so at Camp Grant, yet we do not
even yet believe that his acts hero rep
resent the purposes of those charged
with executing the laws of the United
It is with sincere sorrow we are in
formed of the tardy recovery of Hon.
R. C. McCormick. ijrom private
advices up to September 21, we are
convinced that the extent of his ter
rible affliction has not been realized
by his friends here. The severe loss
of his left eye was understood, but
that his whob constitution had been
so enfeebled as to render it extremely
doubtful whether ho ever can recover
his accustomed physical strength, is a
fact not heretofore appreciated. We
would not unnecessarily alarm his
friends anywhere, but it is right tu
make known his true condition, espe
cially at this peculiar crisis in Ari
zona affairs. His constituents must
bear in mind that his health is very
poor, and tnaf any active exercise of
mind or body can but seriously en
danger his life.
According to the existing regula
tions, there is nothing to hinder any
party of Apache warriors from going
into Camp Grant, drawing five days'
rations and then going upon a raiding
or murdering expedition on the roads
or in the settlements, andrepeating
the process at their pleasure. Captain
Stanwood, commanding that Post,
says this is the case, and that the-im-
mense size of the Reserve makes it im
possible for the troops to watch the
The Camp Grant Reserve as is well
known is made in the interest of the
savages, and it could not be made to
serve them better or the struggling,
outraged citizens worse.
, Let the nation at large understand
that an Indian chief of some ncte at the
head of the peaceable (!) and govern
ment fed Indians at Camp Grant, did
on or about June 1, 1S71, unprovokedly
kill Charles McKinney on his farm
near Camp Grant ; and also that Vin
cent Colyer about last August 13th
kindly received this same murdering
chief, clothed and fed him at public
expense, and as a mark of the said
Colyer's high regard, put a showy
sash on him. Need any man be in
doubt as to what impression was made
upon that savage murderer's mind ?
