we cannot aiiortl to allow the Kio uranoc
banditti to any longer make our territory
their field of
operations because 3Icxieo,
torn bv intestine disorders, is unable to do
eiuciciu ponce uuiy. 1 ne appointment 01
a mixed commission for the trial of those
who may be captured, proves that wc ate
not dispo-ed to bully or take advantage.
This nation can always afford to be just.
Wo shall suppress the disorder, and if the
boundary lines art moved, it will be by rea
son of equitable arrangements, and not in a '
spirit of despoilment. It is without doubt j
true that a variety of influences arc at work
to bring our relations with Mexico to a dc-'
cisive settlement. A smooky chamber may 1
bccoaie a neighborhood nuisance. People !
I unable to care for themselves must be
trained at times. Mexico owes money,
Other jxovernniects want us to be their col-.
lector, as well as our own. Mme ot our
own citizens are clamorous, also. Invest
ments in Mexican mines and lands are be
coming more general. Capital and cnter
pristt are pushing their iron hands closely
upon our neighbor's territory. Our expand
ing enterprise seeks a pathway to both the
Pacific ocean ami the Caribbean sea. Se
curity must precede or accompany railroad
construction. The makers of wealth and
the creators of new activities aro neither
sentimental nor diplomatic. If safety can
not precede, it must accompany them, and
they argue this can be obtained only under!

months since from California and represent

Hamilton procured a school to teach, which
he managed to handle for about three
months. Mr. Daley, in his jiersuasivc way,
induced us to commission him our agent to
solicit subscriptions at the Peck, Black Can
yon and through the Salt River Valley. .
Meeting with gotnl success he overreached '
his authority and proceeded south to Globe,
Floreuce and Tucson. Here he acted the
part of a loafer aud scoundrel, following up
hjs California reputation. We were ad
vised of his disgraceful actions throughout
the southern section of the Territory by
some of the best citizens of Pinal aud '
Pima counties, and wc for the sake of our pa- 4
per tried to recall the gallantjbilk. through

handled him without glove?. Finally the

he went forth to bilk others as he had us. '

the vicinity of Black Canyon, he overtook
