The Fort Grant court martial re
resulted about as" wo expected it
would. tOnly t.o of the treacherous
scouts were convicted and the sen
tences passed on them, considering'
tho gravity of their offences, are
shamefully light. Scout No. 19 was
sentenced to forfeit to the United
States all pay and allowance now
due, and to bo dishonorably dis
charged from the service of the gov
ernmant'. Scout No. 15, the murder
er of Cant. Hen tig, was sentenced to
"bo dishonorably discharged fiom
the service of tho United States,
forfeiting all pay and allowance now
due, and be confined at hard labor,
at suoh place as tho proper author
ities' may direct, for tho term of hi
natural life." Had the offenders
been white soldiers, no such leniency
could have been shown. Had they
been citizen scouts and guilty of the
same crime, they would have been
shot without needless ceremony. The
Indians, it seems, arc a privileged
class and can murdor, steal, or com
mit any other crime their brutal in
stincts may prompt, with perfeqt im
punity. Florence Enterprise.
We commend tho above to the
careful consideration of congress. It
were useless to recommend it to the
war department, for it has a way of
doing matters past tho apprehension
of the world at large. The red
"wards of tho nation" are a privi
leged class. They are well fed and
well clad; yet, like the lilies; "they
toil not, neither do they spin."
Let the'poc-Vwhite deW violate the
law, and if he is not hung or shot, he'
is set at hard labor and made to
"earn his bread by the sweat of his
brow." Indians may break out in
periodical war, and after they
have slaked their thirst for human
blood, they are enticed back to their
comfortable reservations by red shirts,
red blankets, beads and tobacco, and
are again pampcred'at the nation's
expense. It appears to us, here upbn
the border, that it is time that oui
legislators learned something of it
practical nature how these people
light to be treated in order to secure
i peace to the country and tho great-

The road agents are at their work
again. The Bisbeo road is now the
field for their harvest. Tho query is,
how did they happen to know the
funds were on board? Wells, Faigo
& Co. ought to have a' detective
around to look out for tho leaks.
Some one tells; the question is, who
is it? Tucson Star.
Tho ablution to the above conun
drum is easy to those who know any
thing about affairs here. Whenever
treasure is shipped oyer the road a
messenger is sent on that stage;
when there is no treasure there is no
guard. Under these circumstances
any intelligent person can deduce the
fact whether the coach is en bonanza
or en borusco. Again, it is well
known that Copper Queers pay-day
is about the 8th of the montfi, there
fore -on the 6th, when tho guard
mounted tho coach, it was a reason
able sUppos'tion that the money was
going forward to pibff'whh. Mr.
J. B. Hume, the company's most
confidential employee, is hore, and
can and will verily this solution of
the matter, which we trust will be
satisfactory to thq.Star.
If this continual raid which tho
United States army is carrying on
against the Indians shall go on, says
tho Nashville World, the rac? will
surely be exterminated. Think of it;
about two months ago thoy captured
a little Indian girl who had strayed
from camp, and th6 other day they
captured a squaw and a papoose or
two, and now these daring soldiera
have captured a wholo Indian camp.
There was, how'evor, but one Indian
in the camp, and ho was dead.
An Kl JPaso Toast.
The El Paso Herald of the 4th in

Washington, Jan. 9. Guiteau
arrived at the court house about 9:30
a. M., and was taken to tho waiting
room. Ho appeared rather nervous
and his countenance indicated affx
iety. When he had taken a seat in
tho dock ho glanced around stea'tliijy
and immediately began a harangue,
evidently intended for tho jury.
."I have received some eight hun

from tho stalwarts of Brooklyn, and
another for $500 from the stalwarts

A bailiff here tried to silence him,
when he turned upon him in the
most vicious manner, and shouted,
"You keep quiet and mind your own

without warning. Northern Arizona,
up to within a few months ago, was

spirit of desperation seems to have
taken hold of this section. Reports
of crimes and depredations come in

From Mr. O. Lawrence the following
facls in relation io 'the 'pursuit of ttic-stoleh
stock froiri Helta's horse ranBh were
'learned. The morning 'after the stock
'was stolen, which waa 'one week ago last
Sunday, the stock having been driven off
on Saturday evsning, Mr. Lawrence, in
company with Henry Schultz, Walter Hal
sell and Jeff Sallng, took tke'-trail and
started 'iri, pursuit. They 8truek the trail'
six miles troni the ranch and followed it to
tlie foot of the Smsshelm mountains, on
the western side, where they found a man
who saw the. party. He at first supposed
they were Mexican smugglers, and in
that supposition lie crept cautiously up to
vvithin two hundred yards Of.thcm v. here
he got a'good view of Seven stalwart Apa-
.iicauuug uvuuu aure ruvcuuguieai, unuj
he thinks there was one among the horses.
He counted seventeen horses and mules
in the band.) It has been ascertained
that there was taken from the ranch
twenty-eight all told, there being some
colls In the lot From this point they tracked
them td within ten mile's Of San Barnardino
ranch, when -'(be trail took -a sudden tufil
in a southeast direction, crossing this Qua.
daiupe canyon and striking direct for the
Sierra Hadrcs. Ihe party followed them
four days, and until they got Into the
Sierras, where the country was so' rough
and rncky tlnit It Was usfcl'&s to'go further,
when they turned libout1 and came. home,
hiving been gone seven, days, riding as
hard as their horses could stand it They
found where the Indians had killed and
abandoned tfiree colts and five horses thi't
had'gHen out In the fflght. Whetherthis
band is a part of Juh's 'biad that passed
through this country in October last, or
some renegades just from San. Carlos,
cannot now be told. That they got the
horses and are now in Sorora is certain.
from Vt hence, Wc will ho dbiibh hear of1
more of tfyeir damnHble slaughter soon.

The Territory of Arizona vs. Jiio Hawes
and William Hav.es charged with'assault
to murder. Up6n exsailnaiion'the charge
was reduced to simple assault and each of
the defendants were fined f 5 and costs,
making $29 in each case. The gist ot
these esses is as follows : The complain-'
abt, F. Rosencrantz, has several teams en
gaged in haulmg wood in from the Dra
goon mountains. The defendants are.his
teamsters two brothers and brothsrs of
Rosencrantz' wife. It seems that on Sus-
dar they bad taken out with them1 bottle
of liquor and one of them was somewhat
intoxicated when Mr. Rosencrantz carae to
them where at work. The result was that
he told the brothers that that would not,
do, that he would have no such work,
around him, going so far, it is reported, as
to threaten to break the bottle. 'At' this'
one of the brothers became 'enraged and
made violent t'jrsats, wliereupun the other
brother, who was not at this -time intoxi
cated, persuaded Mr. Rosencrantz to go
away, saying that it would be all right
He did go away, but on returning some
time-after, be found both drunk andin'a
fighting humor, 'and they went-o far as to
drive him away frm his teams and fired
at him. At this Mr. Rosei.rrantz became
so alarmed that he ran away with all his
might, and kept on running until exhaust
ed, when he 'out down by the side'
of the road, where he Vas taken up
by a Jnan who came along in a buggyand
brought to town, where complaint was en
leied and a warrant issued by Justice Fel
ler, which was put into the bunds of Dep
uty Sheriff Perki'ds, who w'erit out aud
made the arrests, bringing fn the prisoners
and lodging them in jail Sunday night
They 'paid their fines and Went home wiser
