THE UT1S TROUBLE.
We are in receipt of ji copy of .U10
Carlisle Herald, containing a report 1
of the committee on Indian ?xhib
its at the Cumberland county fair.
The report shows the progress the
Indians at Carlisle arc making and
reflects credit on the children, and
their teachers. We will publish the
report in a futuse issue.
Cattle men cannot spend the
money it costs to better advantage
than in advertising their brands in
the Thansportkil By this means
quick and easy communication is
established between stockmen, str-ay
stock is easily recovered and steal
ing rendered impossible. The cost
is comparatively nothing when com
pared to the benefit of having one's
brand generally known.

There is likely to be trouble tit the
Los Pinos Agency growing-out of the
killing aL aw Indian by -a white man.
The murderer -was-ai-ndstieu Jiy AgCnt
Berry and was taken from him and
killed by the Indians in revenge for
the murder of their fellow. Agent
Berry was arrested and taken away
from his Agency, charged with mur
der cm fiic ground .that 'he -did hot
take proper care of his prisoner.
Ufo Commissioner, Meacham, was
taken as a witness. This takes from
the Agency the only men who have
much influence with the Indians, so
that a general Indian ww is imiui-'
ncnt. To make matters -worse, law
less white -men are committing of
fenses against -the Tndiams and in
citing them to deeds of barbarity.
Secretary Sehurz has sent a tele
gram to the Governor of Colorado
explaining to him the situation and
asking his cooperation to preserve
peace and avert fthe teahwmties erf
war. Whether Berry is guilty or not
it is certainly a risky piece of busi
ness to take him awaj' from his
Agency at a time when the Indians
are excited arjd raaxly for an out
hiiealc MOBEETIE, TISXAfi.
AVe started on the Oth inst. for
Mobcetie and Fort Elliott, Texas,
and after some pleasant and some
rather unpleasant experiences arriv

The road is one of the best in the
country and runs almost directly
west from here to Mobcetie, a dis
tance of 100 miles. Air. Soger has
provided buckboards and a covered
hack for 4,1k) .accommodation of pas
sengers, and will take them through

safety and comfort. Buckboards
and stages connect at Mobcetie for
all points in Texas and New Mexi

Among the blacksmiths, Mr. John
