to understand why the management at San
Carlos should be assailed.
One of the best reasons for questioning!
thc management of 3Ir. Ulum is, that the
Citizen has persistently lauded and praised
....... , . ,
it. which throws doubt upon the honesty
and integrity of ?Ir. Chun at once, to say
nothing of the unfouiidud claims that are
made of keeping his ItuLnns on the Hecr-1
vatiun. nrcservimi neace. an.I teiuminK tlin,
to be good and self supportiu". ' 1
MrChiin has done one thing well, and
that is, he lias inanag..d the Agency in his '
own interest and that of the contractors for
nearly three years and maintained himself'
with "his Department, when he has done
tii;.rw fi,r ,v..,.i.i i..it... .,.,.,,1..,..
the l'enitcntiarv. Tlio penalty prescribed
by law, (Sec revised Statutes at large, Sec.
SI-HI), tor burning the Whito Mountain
Agency, is not le than two, nor more than
tuenty-onc year imprisonment, For this
burning, Agent Chun was responsible.
As to his keeping his Indians ou thu Res
ervation, we have shown just how well he
docs that, by the numerous reports we get
from all parts of the country of the prcs-'
once of San Carlos Indians, although just at !
this time he is rallimr all in that 1... emi ..f

Cium, promised to bring their people in. in
a few days It was soon discovered that
they had lied, and tho fact was reported to
Gen. ivautz, with the request that they be
pursued nud punished. Gen. Kiuitz has ex
plained, in "The Other Side," how Col.
Compton was ordered to take up this trail
and pursue it until the tlcctng Indians were
captured or killed, and has stated his disap

In the Governor s "exhaustive reply," (evi
dently written by John Wassonl, this point
is distorted into a misrepresentation by tho
Genend, because lie knew tho fact urhcu ho
was in Tucson, and so stated to the Gover

tliHt he received Coinpton'sdispHtch atEure

to follow the trail, but gave no reasons, and
fluid ho would scour tho Cliiricalnm moun

Tucson, ami it was on tho morning of the

that Compton hud failed to pursue the trail.
The General took the stage for Prescott in

But why not courtuiartial him ? replies the
author of the Governor's "exhaustive reply.'
The General informs us that that is easier
said thau done. Col. Compton is the fourth
officer in rank in the Department, and to
intvc a Court would require a great many
officers from a distance. In addition, while
Col. Coinptuu's reasons were unsatisfactory
to the General, they wouid have had some
force with a Court, and would probably

which it is the special duty of the Indian

"Mr. Cium whs charged with the removal
of the Chiricahuas. It was his business to

where they went and if he is the wonderful

Pikenk, April 10th. 1877.
Approximating the number of acres under
cultivation in this extensive Salt River Val
ley, we find it will npproach in the neighbor
hood of from 8,000 to 10,000 acres' The
greatest portion of this is sown in wheat and
barley, and it is estimated, that the combined
husbandmen .of this section, mil harvest at
least ciirht million bushels of crJlin tliia-Toni-

The laud of the valley is so level that It

valley of about 1,500 people, of which Phoe
nix may justly claim about 500. Seven
years ago the fertility and beauty of this
region attracted settlers, and in that short
space of time the country has been com
pletely transfigured. And we believe Mr.
C. II. Gray was the first to bring in a white
family. On cloe observation and examina
tion of the construction of the country, it is
self-evident that there existed. .-md inliiiluti.fi
thin cotiutry a people who cultivated,- tilled
and irrigated the soil. The remains of old
flitches can be st.n on it.li.j ..ml tlx.,-. rn
gularity at certain intervals is conclusive that
they are of artificial construction. The ruins
exhibited by the various mounds on all
sides, whose surfaces are covered with frag
ments of Clllinarv nilJir.ltlts nnd nnttnrV
ware, is the strongest evidence that a race ot
human bcinirs skilled in thnnrt-snf liu-di-inilrv
and science of irrigation and manufactures,
subsisted on the fertility of this vailcv, which
pernaps was recognized ages ago.
Time has made its ravages; their cities arc al
most leveled with the ground none of their
traditions arc to bo found iimnno- tin. nnr
existing tribes which inhabit it. All vestiges

litcratcd. The wide belt of agricultural land which
lies along the Salt River, on a rough esti
mate, will maintain a population of twenty
thousand people. It h3 at present "only
1,500. So there is an ample field for those
desirous of agricultural pursuits, to gratify
themselves, by locating on the banks of Salt
mver. i ne means oy wiiicn tins large area
of land, by the side ot the great Salt River,

The information here givon has been fur
nished by the talontcd secretory of the Canal
Company, Mr. E S. Jackson. On Thursday
April 3th, a meeting was held by the member
of the Gila Ditch 'Company, at the residence
of E. W. Wiley, in accordance with previous
notice. The meeting proceeded to organize
by electing R. J. Cartwright, Chairman, and
Mr. M. Jackson, Secretary. The constitution
and by-laws were read and adopted, after
which an election of officers ensued, with
the following result : President, E. "W. Wiley j
Secretary. E. S. L. Jackson; Treasurer, II.
Hughes; Board of Directors, J. V. Alley, It,

to meet May 3th. "
The ditch emerges from the Gila River
about two miles' below the mouth of tho
Agua Fria, and but a short distance above,
where the river is confined between high
banks. Consequently all of the tillable land
is secure irom itanger oi inundation, no
Slirns belli f visible that it over has lvn

loam and is covered with a heavy growth of
mosquito, sage, arrow wood, etc. The settle

ere long, and directly along the line of the
new road to Yuma, which road is now in
course of construction. Improvements havo
