LLGISLATIVE I'EIt DIEM .vNDjgMILKAOE
First. That of the pef.diemjttncijmilc.
ago of members of tb6leglslaturo7The
indent law ot congress u'luwsfourjinllun
per day and fifteen cents per mllo'to ruem
ucrsot tho legislature. In tac light of the
tacts, theso rates arc too low. '1 lie cost ol
liung in this lerulory is proportionately
much higher than in the states and some
of the other territories, and four dollais
per day will scarcely meet tho absolutely
necessary expenses of the memoers during
their temporary slay at tho capital. The
mileage received by the members is less
than tho usual charges per mile by the
stago companies, and tho only railroad
company we now have charges nearly as
uuu-h as is allowed members tor traveling
expenses. It would be more economical,
in the end, to pay the members six dollars
per day, ti.e old rate, inasmuch as thin
price would encourage a better class ol
iuento become candidates for legislative
tionor. I have been clo3oly connected, In
an olllcial manner, with two sessions ol
tho legislature in this territory, and "speak
irom tho book" when I say the moral and
mental material entering into the make up
of the two bodies above alluded to'was . 1
an inferior quality compared to that which
could have been selected under tho inllu
enio of a trillini; incrcaso of compensa
lion. Tho more industtiotis and intelli
,'ent class of citizens hao not been will
ing to leave their homes and business tot
ihjpurpoo of servluj the public for the
issurancu ol bareiy enough money to covei
iheir real aud necessiry expenses. The
iow rate per diem has been made the ex
ouso by members quite a number of times
lor entering into close combinations one
with tho other, for tho purposo of special
legislation In the interest ot private indi
vidua's and combinations, at the expense
of tho territory. Tho lOih assembly, in
esion January and February, 1870, on its
i losing (lajs, passed a bill by vhich each
of its members were to receive additional
compensation from the tieasury of the tor
nlory. Tno 11th assembly also passed a
similar bill dutlng its closing days, in
darch last. The bills wero passed in the
ace ol a positive prohibitory law of con
,'rcs on tho subject. The bill passed bj
lie 10th legislature was approved by the
.jovtriior, and tho members drew their ex
.ni pay; the bill passed by the 11th legis
laturo was vetoed by tho jjovcrnor, aud it
.v as passed by a two thirds vote over his
eto. The auditor (territorial), howevei,
i cl'iiscd to issue warrants to the members
md ofllcers, and I believe, the members
uid ofllcers have not jet drawn tho extm
unount thus appropriated, and probablj
till not bo able to. I am strongly of the
ipinion that an Incrcaso of pay "per oiem
in members of tho legislature would ghe
us assurances of wiser laws and more
economy connected with legislative and
aovunxon to be u,LCTtD fkom ciiize.ns
OP THE TEIUUTOrtY.
Second. I would recommend on the
part of Congiess the pussage of n law al
lowing the territories tho pmilcgo ol
electing their own governors. Theciti
ins ot this territory arc generally intelli
jen t, wide-awake and aggrcsshe. From
unoug their number could be selected a
very competent and acceptable man, at
my time, to assume the duties of the ofllce
i.t executhe. A very strong prejudice ex
ists in this tetritory against so called
'caipet bag" officials, and a spirit of dis
trust and uncertainty exists in the minds
if nur citizens In the case of men untried
ind stranger officials comini: into their
midst from abroad. Many of thcin come
principally for tho purpose of enjojing
he honors and emoluments of the arm ol
tlllco for which they aio appointed, and
'ery naturally do not ftel the same Btcp
ooucern for the public welfaro they would
it they, were permanent residents and prop
erty holders In tho territory. A law of
this kind allowing the citizens of the t?r
ri.ory the privilege of electing lrom theii
twn numbers their exci-utivc, would be
hailed with proud satisfaction, and the
best interests of the public peace and pros
pcnt3 enhanced thereby.
AU1USSIOX INTO THE UNION.
Third. All tho tciritoiics ought to be
permitted to avail themselves of the privil
eges ami blessings of sisterhood with the
stales now in the grand Union. Under
the influence oi the great tide of men and
money now rushing into tho hitherto iso
I ited sections of the l'aciflc coast country
and the northern possessions, the time is
not far distant when all the sections (.1
country now controlled by Congress in a
territorial form f government wili be
loudly knocking at tho door of Congiess
lor equal privileges with the great states
of our American Nation. Congress'slioukl
not lose sight of the nccessUlcjiTpQthosc
sections ot our common countrynow so
lapidly filling up with both a class ot
peaottul and industrious and a reckless
and abandoned people.
Fourth. After consultation with lead
ing lawjeis, and with the judges them
selves, 1 would most heartily recommend
the p assay o of a law allow in;; for this ter
ritory an additional United States judge.
Wo have three United States Judges,
each presiding over n scp irate district
the extent of which Is very large. Tho in
crcaso of population and tho general un
settled state ol alfairs, bringsbounfftpod
deal of litigation and muchjincreaied
labor on the part of the iudges.'fcgGr
Hut the greatest reason fhy perhaps a
fourlh judge should be provided for is
from the fact that the three judges, sitting
as a supreme court, considci ing case, np.
pealed lrom somo one of the three Dis
trict courts, are each passing a second time
on a case appealed from the lower couit,
iccofding to the districts from which said
case may be appealed. If there shall be
four judges then nhen in session as a
Supreme court, tho judge from whose (lis
tiict an appealed case is being tried, can
reliie. I am informed that in one of the
territories a fourth judge has been provided
fur by act of Congress.
Our people would bo generally pleased
to be favored with a similar law if such a
THE GOVEIIMILXT'8 INDIAN 1'OLlCY.
Fifth. With reference to tho Indian
policy in the territories: The citizens in
this territory aro remarkably unanimous
In the opinion that the whole question of
their management should be transferrel
to the military department, My obscr.
vatlu8 in this territory convince me that
tho reservation, on which are placed the
warlike tribes, should bo under the full ron.
trol of the vnrilcpartmcut. Tho Indian
whose warlike spirit has l en thoroughly
broken, and who from personal choice
prefers to mingle in peace with the whites,
whether Individually, in tribes, on reser
vations, it tho very midst of settlements
and civilization, could, with wisdom, be
Vconlinueti ur.der tho contiol oi peace pur
Viing citizens. Tho Indian problem, in
this territory, in my opinion, cunnot be
brought to a sale and satisfactory solution
unti)vthc warlike spirit of the more savage
tribes' has been thoroughly broken. I
have been upon the-tian Carlos reservat'on
in times of the fullest peace with tho Indi
ans, and lnuo looked into the faces of the
chiefs, and through an interpreter have
comerscd with them and have not fuiled to
discover the reckless and unsalisfled spirit
chafing like the Hon In his cage under the
unnatural retsraint to which they were
compelled to jield. Their wild and un
tamed natures demand the fullest liberty
to loam unmolested through the valleys,
over the mountains and along the sticams
of theii birth places and early associations.
Uniair and unjust tieatment, and Ignor
ance of the Indian character, to some ex
tent, on the part of tho authorities plaicd
over him, mingled with an uncontrolable
desire for the litieity of a lifetime to rot.ni
unmolested, to hunt and clia-c undisturb
ed, is the motive that actuates them to
steal away from .heir narrow confines and
to commit murder aud theft in their effoits
to regain possession of their old and ac
Their warfare now with the whites is
moie of the character of the deleusive
than the offensive. Past contests with the
overpowering arm of civilization has
lauglit them that their only safety is a re
treat into the forests and lastnesses of uu
inhabited nioui.liiins. The requirements
of peace and the best interests of civiliza
tion impcralhely demand that the wild
men of the forest must first be conquered
and then controlled. They can be more
easily conquered and compelled lo go upon
nservatlous than they can be controlltd
and kept in peace theiealtcr. When upon
tuc reservations they should be justly dealt
with and compelled to respect the hand of
authoiity. Kindness and great firmness
should be constantly practised with the
more restless and untamed spii its. There
is much fraud and deception, without
doubt, practised upon the Indian by de
signing agents who care moie for profit
and power than they do for the peace and
prosperity of their country. Government
contractors in some cases seem to acquire
an unfortunate control of Indian agents,
and then the trouble is likely to begin.
One reason why I favor placing" tho ontrnl
of the warlike Indians in the hands of the
military is because of the common belief
diat as n rule the regular army officers
would be more just to all parties concern
ed. It is thought that be would not bo so
likely to disgrace his lifelong situation as
a regular army officer as a civilian who ex
pects to hold his official position onl for
a brief lime and who does not depend
solely upon his position for a livelihood.
Then again, tho presence of the power
which compelled tho Indian to succumb
on the plain of battle w ould become a con
btant lcmindcr to them of the consequence
of an outbreak. In this territory there has
not always cxislcl a spirit of harmony a d
atnencss of purpose between the military
and civil authorities with reference to the
contiol and management of the Indians.
I hereforo in my judgment the blanch of
die servico best calculated to conquer a
peace with tho Indians and to keep the
amethereatier should be placed in control
Sixth. On account of the greatly dis
lurhed condition of the pllbl c peaco along
i lie bolder of the United States and JMcxi
i'o, and the seriously appiehcnded dis
turbances of the present peaceful con
dition of allairs between the two govern
ments as a consequence thereof, and tho
utter inability of the local civil authorities
it all times to keep the peace and bring
injustice the large number of reckless and
abandoned men in the counties forming
a part of the border, I would very respeci
lully urge upon Congress tho wisdom of
ho tar remedying the law uowpiohibiting
the army front actively participating in
aggressive efforts to peep the peace and
protect the Ihes and propeny of the
country, so far as the same relates to this
territory. We hac withiu our borders a
small army of outlaws well armed and fully
able to cope with the ordinary civil
posses of-the several counties. I think the
governor ol tho territory has authority
by law to organize militia companies for
the purposo of overpowering threatened
combinations of men whose purpose is to
defy the ordinary civil authorities and go
upon raids of theft and common plunder.
There are no appropriations at the disposal
of the governor with which to meet the
expenses of such an emergency. Some
thing must be done either by the national
or territorial authorities to quell these con
siant raids upon the piopeity of peaceful
citizens, and the occasional taking the lite
of the innocent And, finally, permit me,
as only acting governor, to recommend
either to congress or j ourself, that the reg
ularly appointed governor of this territory
be required to return to his post of duty1,
or be asked to step aside and permit sonic
other gentleman to take his place and feel
at liberty to act without rcstiaint. In
making this last suggestion, I am prompt,
ed only by tho spirit ot reason and justice
and tho demands of the public. The
aboc recommendations and suggestions
arc offcied disinterestedly and in the sin
ctro regard for the public good.
Most respectfully, jour ob'd't serv't.

Washington, Deo. 13. Dr. E. C.
Spitgar, from New York, testified in
tho Guiteau case this morning: He
had made nervous and mental dis
eases a specialty; had testified as an
expert twenty-live times; examined
Guiteau in jail yesterpay; was satis
fied ho was insane; the main features
of tho prisoner's case were a tenden
cy for delusive opinions and morbid
projects, and stiong imbecility of
judgment. While 1 have no other
evidence than tho expression of his
face, I should have no doubt he is a
moral imbecile or moral monstrosity.
Scoville, in a hypothetical qaestion,
asked if tho witness thought tho
prisoner insano July 2d. Witness
answered that the prisoner was in
sane when ho examined him and
must have been more or less morbid,
mentally, throughout his life, and
was probably insane July 2d. Da
vidgo made some very pointed in
quiries as to tho standing and oppor
tunities for professional acquire
ments enjoyed by. the witness, to
which Scovilc objected. It having
been stated that tho witness was a
veterinary surgeon, Scovillo said ho
Mad no cause to be abhamed. Da
vidgo said, "Only that his treatment
must have been chiefly of horses,
and he must be a horse doctor."

A Fortunate Accident.
From tho Pbenlx Herald.
The caving of rock which took
place at the Vulture mine a few days
ago is a singular piece of good for
tune for the mine, as it has broken
down a vast quantity of milling ore.
This has filled one of tho drifts,
and the cars are loaded at tho point
of caving, and ru direct to the in
cline, and mill. Hundreds of thou
sands of tons of ore are thus made
available, without the use of a single
pound of blasting powder. The only
misfortune, in all the matter is the
loss of life in the case of the miner,
Mr. Webber, who, because of his
leaving the spot where work was as
signed to him, was caught and
crushed by an ore car propelled by
the air, and died on the following
uay lrom injuries received. A coro
ner's jury was summoned, and after
careful examination of witnesses,
they rendered a verdict of accidental
death, and entirely exonerated the
mining company. This is the more
important from the fact that no
officer or employee of the mine was
a member of the jury. The heavy
rains of last summer h d caused a
gradual settling in this part of the
mine, and this caving in had long
been expected. Hence workmen
had been removed from the danger
ous portions, and, but for the loss
of life, the affair is one of tho most
fortunate that could have occurred
for the economic extraction of ore.

From the Phenlx Gazette.
Many prospectors do not realize
the necessity of procuring a patent
ot their claims, before knowing them
to be of great value, as a certain pre
ventive of any future litigation in re
gard to the matter. Thus many work
away till they find good pay dirt,
and when their claim is known to bo
of iny value, and the owners pro
ceed to patent it, claimants spring
up on every side and a long htiga
tion begins, which results in; if not
the loss ot tho property, so much
expense as to swallow up tho profits
for a long period. These false claim
ants, by the use of money or some
technicality of law, or in some in
stances pure cheek, can establish
such a hold as is very difficult to
shake oli, as many have found to
their sorrow. 1 he only way to pre
vent to a certainty, any such out
come is to havo the patent procured
at so early a stage of development
that no one will have any reason or
excuse for interference, then the
properties can be worked and the
the owners feel perfect security in
its possession, whatever happens.
Should it prove a bonanza, they have
a petfect title. On the other hand,
if it proves worthless the loss is

From the San Bernardino Times
Harrison's express arrived in from
Calico last evening bringing excellent
news from the camp. A tunnel on
the King mine struck the ledge at
100 feet from the mouth and now is
eight feet in on the ledge w Inch shows
go d paving ore all .through, assay
ing from .100 to $700 per ton. This
tunnel taps the ledge 101 feet be
neath the uiscoyery, and proves the
King mine to be a permanent vein.
Work is still being pushed vigor
ously ahead on the Burning Moscow.
Twelyo men are now working on the
shaft which is own 30 feet in good
ore ail the way. A largo quantity of
ore from this mine has been shipped
to San Francisco for reduction and
yielded excellent returns, and ore is
now accumulating on the dumps.
The Walthal is the new excite
ment in the camp, the ore boily
struck in the mine being of unusual
size and richness even for Calico.
There arc now seven locations on
this ledge, and it promises to be the
biggest thing in the county.

This summer the aspect for peace
and quiet looked rather blue in the
neighborhood of Flagstaff; shooting,
killing and robbing seemed to be the
order of the day. Our authorities,
however, buckled on the armor, and
tho way they went for tho outlaw
element was a caution. Arrests
were made, indictments found, and
trials had, and beneficial results were
affected. Wo have already two can
