Editor Citizen: Having occasion
a short time since, to visit the south
aiil of tlte Gila River. I found it
necessary to cross that stream nineteeu
times before I was fairly across. By
making diligent inquiry I found that
an expenditure of say $5000 would
build a road where it would be only
necessary to cross the river once, by
taking the route from Globe via Little
Giant, Disappointment Creek and
Dripping Spring wash to a point on
the tiiia juver opposite vac uuwoi
Ifeurle mine : then cross the river once,
then cross the ridge to the mine, and
then down Gold Canyon to the mouth,
and cross the Ash Creek; then along
the old San Carlos trail to a point on
tbe San Pedro River, four miles below
old Fort Grant : then cross the oaa
Pedro to Canyon D'Orc, and tnen up
that canyon to Tucson. The crossing
nf tui Gila is at a noint wnere tne
water is always shalrw.

To the readers of the Cmzss, lioth
old and young, we wish a merry,
happy Christmas. It is the most joy
ous season of the year; it is a lime for
merriment; it is a time when lathers
and sons, mothers and daughters, hits-
bands and wives, lovers, friends al 1
who feel for others the mystic tie
which binds sive expression sub
stantially to such love or friendship.
It is a time full of reminiscence,
when memory after memory rises out
of the past which is drifting so fur, so
very far.back the past when the warm
blood of childhood's days surged
through Uie vein with quickened
motion as eager anticipation pictured
the delights of 44 to-morrow." Hint
person is to be pitied, indeed, who
does not thrill vith a little of the old-
time pleasure as the picture of a little
stocking above the mantel in the old
home comes to the inner heart. Out
of tbe nasi comes undimmed the face
of a mother, which was then the lov
Heat and sweetest face in the wide

then the bravest and beat : the faces of
brother and sister, now, perhaps, alas!

to-morrow which will be so very
happy; there will be homos which
will be so very sad; there will be
homes vhich are not homes. It Uie
Citizen could feel certain that in all

Recent advices from Kansas report
the colonists as In a deplorable con
dition. Severe weather has cooled
their ardor. This is out one of many
of the ui'lawtul attempts of K&nsas
entaiuiasts to unlawiully occupy so
called goveriment land. They begun
as ear.y as lyOS, when a simi'iir class
of crazy people, without a shadow of
right, attempted to colon:ze lue Dela
ware Indian Reservation; then fol
lowed similar attempts on the Poua
wotamie. Sac and Fox, and New York
Indian Reservations. But the most
stupendous offo.t of the kind ever at
tempted in that State was their at
tempt to take forcible possession of
what was known as the 44 Cherokee
Neutral Lands." This tract of land
comprised S00,000 acres of the best
land iu the Slate, which was held in
trust by the United States for the
Cherokee Indians, in lieu of $500,000
which was due them from the United
States. Full 20,000 people seUled
upon these lands before the question
of the title was settled. James F.
Joy, in behalf of the Missouri River,
Fort Scott and Gulf Rrilroad Com
pany, bought the tract, and the set
tlers (with a few excepfoas) had to
buy the land of the railroad company
at from ?o to $10 per acre. There has
always been enough seed of the old
set left to organize new expeditions,
and this 44 on to Oklahoma " is but an
outgrowth of tlte old system which
has prevailed since the early settle
ment of Kansas. They have never suc
ceeded in their unlawful attempts to
tnk o forcible possession of Indian and
so-called government land, nor are
they likely to in the present instance.
We find this paragraph iu the
San Francisco weekly mining review
of the San Francisco Alta. The Alta
is a good, conservative journal, and

wo cannot but remember that a para

dono much more good a year sooner,
al which time it would have contained
just as much truth :
44 The rapidly increasing interest
being manifested in the Arizon mines
indicates that many of these mineral
propositions will receive places upon
