creatine a h-altliy sentiment la the East on the
long mlsnnderstood Indian qnellen nhteh will
unaonbtedly lead uongre to a better apprecia
tion of tbe vigorous polky necessary to be pur-!
ranne nxitjuiin in Tixmiairn.
Tbe building of a railroad aoros the Territory
Is one of tbe most Important steps towards the
subjugation or tbe Apache that can be taken and
for this reason and for many others that will oc
cur to you. 1 tjircet that you pray CongTa to
render such assistance lo the company or compa
nies proposing to build such road aa will insure
an early completion or tbe work. ere the Ter
ritory not Infested with hostile Indians tbe diffi
culty and expense of getting here until a railroad
Is providnl mnst make it slow of settlement and
prove a great drawback to Its progress. Under
existing circumstance its construction were
equal to tbe sending here of a dozen regiments
of troops and It essential In order to make the
country available lo tbe public and to seeure lo
tbe Government the revenues which, with proper
aid, it will so abundantly return.
1'artles who since the meeting of tbo last As
serably have surveyed the routes arow the Ter
ritory declare them to be mot practicable and
there Is a growing bcllof both in California and
the East that the popular and profitable Pacific
railroad will go through Arizona.
In this connection 1 may refer to tbe fact that
telegraphic communication l now complete to
Santa Fe, New Mexico, and that by connecting
malls wo receive new from all partaof the world
in ten days. I am Informod that parties stand
ready to extend the wires across Arizona to Cal
ifornia ir reasonable encouragement Is given. If
you can in any wy alt the enterprise 1 am
sure you will do so.
Tho acttvo military movements against tbe
Wallapals brought most or them to terms aome
months since and a number were placed upon a
temporary reservation near Fort Mohave but I
learn they are again upon the war path ronmlng
chiefly upon the Mohave and I'rencott road. They
are a weak tribe and their hostility cannot con
tinue long. When work upon the great Colorado
reservation was suspended, owlnc to the exhaus
tion r the Congressional appropriation, the
Apacbo-Mohave, i avapal and other Indian garn
ered there, took to the mountains, and recent
depredations near La I'az and Wlckenburg are
attributed to them. K they have begun hostili

counteracting.tbe influence of the authorities and
leading the Indians to lose nil conndence in tho
white. While no treatment can in my Judgment
be too severe for tho hostile Indians those, die
posed to be friendly should bo entitled to tho
same protection from the laws as other persons
owing allegiance to the government enjoy. The
rlmns and Maricopa lost a part of their crops
by the unusual flood ol September last, but they
ntc generally prosperous &nd contented, although
but slightly provided for by the government.
All who comprehend the Indian character will
rejoice that tho Indian Commission h,s reached
the view long held on the frontier that tho gov
ernment should ceaso to recognize tho Indian
tribes as a domestic Independent nation except
so far as it may be remilred to recognize them as
uch by existing treaties, and bytrcatles made
but not yet ratllled: that hereafter, oil Indians
should be considered ond held to be individu
ally subject to the laws of the t'nlted Slates ex
cept where and while it is otherwise provided In
such treaties. Such course will be commended
to Congress by the Commission with another
good suggestion; vix: to cloth, protect and
assist all Indians, no matter or what tribe, who
will go upon reservations and stay there.
The Wiokcnbtirg gold mines are worked with
out interruption and steadily yield a large rev
enue. The Vulture lode, the Coimtoek or Ari
zona, now ha a wide and merited fame. It is
one or the riclitvt. most extensive and remark
able deposlU or gold nuar:- pun the continent,
and iU return to this time is beloved to be but
an earnest or what may be oxpected from it in
tlio future. L'n fortunately the mills erected In
the vicinity of l'reseott were put either npon
worthless lodes or upon those which ores pre
dominate which cannot be made to pav uv or'
