SATUIWA r, DECEMBER 16. 1SS2.
The San Bernardino Weekly
Times appears in' a new and
highly beautified style ihis week.
We congratulate its proprietor
an these evidences of prosperity.
The Tombstone Republican is
urging its representatives in the
next Legislature to wort for an
act authorizing the county to
issue bonds to the amount of
$10,000, to build a county hospi
tal. The Los Angeles Commercial
came to us. on Tuesday evening
in an enlarged form, as an eight
page paper. The change will
greatly benefit advertisers, as
there will be something on each
page to attract the attention of
readers. This last enlargement
increases the Commercial to just
twice its size three years ago,
and speaks volumes for th'e pro
gress of both the journal, and the
city of Los Angeles.
The Sentinel has received,
with the compliments of the au
thors, the reports of the Secreta
ries of the War and Interior De
partments. The latter report
contains much matter of interest
to Arizona. Th e Secretary renews
his recommendation that the In
dians be stripped of their fire
arms. It is a good thing. But
the question naturally arises as
to howLo will take his medicine
The average buck thinks more
of his gun than his squaw, and is
also in the habit of carrying as
many revolvers as he can buy
and steal, and it is reasonable to
suppose that when invited to lay
down his arms he will demur.
If so, a lively matinee may be
exui-cted, and a few Indian
agents may turn up missing.
Tuesday morning's issue of the
Tucson Star coutains the follow
mg sensible homily upon bull
fighting: "The fact that bull
fighting is a part of the national
amusement of a race which forms
a large element of the population
of the country does not relieve it
of the enormity, with which it is
regarded by people who respect
the Sabbath, and revere the
humanity which Christianity in
cuicates. .uisa oarnarism none
the less. It outrages just the
same both social and religious
propriety. It revolts alike pri
vate and public decency." It is
known to all as a leper, distilling
its invisible poison upon youth
and age, corrupt and loathsome
in its teachings, and loaving be
hind it a sentiment of universal
abasement. It may be tolerated
because toleration of moral ul
cers is in a partial degree a public
necessity but it will contribute
in no degree to the self respect
and decent opinion of the com
munity." It is painful to hear intelligent
but misinformed and unthinking
men talk about the proposed
abandonment of the Southern
Pacific Rtilroad between Colton
and Casa Grande. To any one
who will give but a moment's
thought to it the proposition is
extremely absurb. The writer of
this paragraph sat at table a
few days ago and overheard a
gentleman from Tucson describ
ing the probable condition of
Yuma when the change is made.
From the tone of the conversation
no doubt seemed to exist that
this vicinity would soon be left
in the cold as regards both rail
road and steamboat facilities.
The increase of mining discove
ries, and the rapid reclaiming of
desert lands both up and down
the river, will hardly justify a
return to mule-teamB and prairie
schuoners. Added to that the
permanent and .substantial im
provements constantly heing
made in the Company's property,
and the problem is solved in our
favor by red uctio ad absurdum.
It behoves Congress to take ac
tion at once upon the joint reso
lution introduced by Senator
Morgan, providing for an amend
ment to the Constitution empow
President to veto an j
Hem m an appropriation Dili,
while giving his sanction to the
remainder. No argument is
needed to show that the propos
ed change would be salutary.. It
would furnish an effective check
on river ana naroor extrava
gance. New York and Califor
nia have constitutional provis
ions of the kind, which have
been found exceedingly useful.
The Legislatures of the various
States would no doubt recognize
the wisdom of President Arthur's
suggestion, and take the necessa
ry steps to embody it in the Fed
A recommendation has been
made to the authorities as Wash
ington, by an officer stationed at
Fort Yuma, to the effect that the
government furnish the Yuma
Indians with some of the neces
saries of life. It is a timely and
just suggestion. For more than
twenty-five years the Yumas
have been peaceable and friendly
to the whites. They have aided
the people in the development of
this section; they are industrious,
honest and peaceable. The ma
terials at their command, how
ever, for earning or gaining
enough to sustain life are meagre
in the extreme: and were it not
for the charity bestowed upon
them by the people of this vil
lage, the unfortunates would suf
fer for food even moie than they
do now. Their blood-thirsty
cousins, the Apaches, are cloth
ed, housed and fed hy our ikind
government : their heaith is
guarded by able U. S. surgeons;
whilst the quiet and well-deserv
ingr Yumas are left to die, like
dogs, of disease and starvation.
The Yumas, it Is claimed, are re
ally Mexican Indians. If so, they
should liye below the line. But
it is a well-known fact that their
homes are and always have been
above what now is the boundary
line between Mexico and the
United States. If it is the policy
of our government to foster vi
pers, and to kill a useful and in
dustrious people, we think it best
for the public to know it at once,
Winter is now upon us, and with
but a scanty supply of food on
hand, the situation of the Yumas
is distressing in the extreme,
and theircase urgently demands
Who is the joint Councilman
from Yuma and Mohave Coun
ties? We know how the vote
stood in this county, but have
received no official notification of
the result m Mohave County
uur (Supervisors ac once sent an
official statement of the count, as
soon as it was made, to the
Supervisors of Mohave county,
out nave not received tne same
courtesy. The only mention we
can find of it in the Statutes of
Arizona is a paragraph directing
theSupervisois of Yuma county
to declare the result of such
elections. If that law has not
been repealed our Supervisors
have still that right, and being
governed by the returns at hand,
must necessarily declare Mr.
Mallory elected. How about it?
According to the Chicago Inter
Ocean two grand juries in St
Louis have refused to indict
John R. Cockerill, the editor of
the Post-Dispatch, for the killing
of Col. Slayback some weeks ago.
It is therefore a thorough and
complete vindication of Mr. Cock
erill, and of the theory that an
editor's office is his castle which
he has a right to defend against
the assaults of angry ruffians.
Outside of his own city Colonel
Cockerill has received the most
cordial sympathy and support of
the editorial profession, which
rejoices at this just conclusion of
an unhappy affair. '
We have received from Hora
tio C. Burchard, Director of the
Mint, a copy of his report upon
the statistics of the production of
the precious metals in the Unit
ed States. It makes a book of 763
pages, and is neatly bound in
cloth. The work is divided into
three general parts, the first of
which is devoted to the produc
tion of bullion m the various
States and Territories, and also
descriptions of promising mines,
Yuma county is well spoken of.
The following communication
was receive -too late ior last
week's issue, but we cheerfully
give it place to-day:
Editor Sentinel: Dear Sir-
Some of the prisoners confined in
the Territorial prison, desirous of
giving expression to their grati
tude to certain kind citizens of
Yuma, for the generous dinner
provided them on thanksgiving
day, would be pleased if you
would insert this in your paper.
The action, while appreciated
for the benefit conferred, was
thought the more of for the
disinterestedness that prompted
t; and while partaking of the
abundant supply of turkey and
other good things, the minds of
many of us traveled back through
time and space to other thanks
giving dinners, eaten in happier
times and amid more pleasant
surroundings, and made us think
that though temporarily depri
ved of our liberty we were not
altogether forgotten, nor with
out the pale of recognition by
our happier and more fortunate
There will be an exhibition in
Chicago, next year, of rather a
novel kind, which is likely to at
tract much attention. It is an
nounced as a "National Exposi
tion of Railway Appliances." A
sufficient guarantee fund has
been raised to insure the financial
stability of the enterprise, and in
the list of Commissioners are the
names of many prominent rail
road men and manufacturers of
railway appliances. A series of
scientific and practical tests, to
be made by well-known scientists
and carefully selected commit
tees, extending to every article
and every description of material
susceptible of receiving test, will
constitute one of the most inter
esting as well as most valuable
features of the exhibition. An
official record of these tests and
of every exhibit, including a list
of prizes awarded, will be made
and published under direction of
the Commissioners. The exposi
tion will no doubt prove advan
tageous to the railway and manu
facturing interests of the country.
In another column mention is
made of the unsettled state of the
matter of joint Councilman from
Yuma and Mohave counties, and
we stated there that the Super
visors of this county have not
received the return from Moha
ve. , Since that was written we
learn that the Mohave county
returns have been received by
the Clerk of the Board of Super
visors of Yuma County. A doubt
still exists as to what disposition
to make of them.
We are imformed that reports
areiu circulation that the Senti
nel is attempting to have a
change made in the officials of
the Tsrritorial prison. The
rumor is false and unfounded.
The Sentinel makes no fight
against officials who attend to
their duty, and will not attack
any officer unless he is lax in the
administration of public affairs, or
takes part in private spites and
squabbles. All we ask of the
boys on the hill is to attend to the
business thev are paid for by the
Territory. The Sentinel re
