eit tothoM who have Botcd or oh
erred theaa liorrid teeBca, to be in
fo med of what I aw and heard.
In order to properly understand the
trf condition of Cachise and his band,
i win My mat lie is the enter ol a
band of ipacLe who in oldcn4 times
inhabited the country from the Qila on
the uerth to aoinq distance in Sonorn
ou the aoath, and from San I'edu on
the weat ' to the MienbrM, i'nl New
Mieo, op the eaat. They have, a
far back oi the memory of diob here
runs, been at war with the people of
Mexico, abd their living his been
principally obtained "by robbery.

very prompt in all his agreements, ho

clildrcu live with them. Upon our ar

tint it was ready. It consisted of
tlin baked cakes, boiled beef, coffee
aid sugar. We were not troubled

neighboring Stales in Mexico, and
brought back herds of homes aud cat
tic. Occasionally stock was taken
in Arizona by Ins Indians nt points
distant from his conutry, but it is un-
derstood that when the complaints were
made in such cases ho made an effort
to restore the property!
lmririg the year 180(1, a boy was
made captive while herding stock on
the .Sonoita, and some believed that
Caclnsc had taken kirn ; hence Lieu
tenant Hascom, with a comnanv of
soldiers, marched to Apache Puss,
near his headquarters, aud camped at
ihe overland mail station. The Lieu
tenant told the hlatiou keeper that he
was on the way to New Mexico, and
that he desired to see Caclme. aud in
duced him to ko and invite him iu.
When asked by Cachise what was
wanted of him, he was informed that
he desired to extend the hospitalities
of his tent, as ho was ou his way out
of the country. Cachise. with four of
ins irieuus, unu relatives, came in, aud
when seated in Bafcom's tent it was
suddenly surrounded by soldiers. He
desired to know the eau.-e, and was in-
tormed that he and his friends were
prisoners, and would be kept as such
until the boy believed to be with his
uand was given up. 'Jaclme protected
against fueli treachery, and declared
that he could not givo him up, ai he
knew nothing of him Watching his
opportunity, he drew his knife aud cut
a hole through the tent and e-caped.
He immediately called his warriors
together and came iu torcc near the
station and desired to have a talk.
One of the station keepers went to him
to hear what he had to say, but us soon
as he had reached Cacliisc's lines, he
was seized and made a nri.-oncr. A
day or two wa: spent afterward in eu
deavors to effect an exchange of priso
ners, tachire, oticrmg to give up his
prisoner if the Lieutenant would rc-
case his (Laclmc s) friend'. The
Lieutenant de -lined to exchange 'only
a man for man unlets Cachise wouid
surrender the boy, but Cachite steadi
ly amrmed that lie knew nothing about
him. Finally he came for a last
talk, leading his station-keeper prUo
tier, with a rope around his neck tied
to the horn of his saddle. He agaiu
offered to surrender him if his
four friends were set free. Tho tta-tiou-kcoper
begged to huvo tho en
hanced made, as his lite would bo
forfeited if it was not dono; but tho
Lieutenant again rjfujed, and C'achiso
roweld' his horse and dashed off at
lightning spocd, dragging his poor
victim ut lull length by tiio neck.
The Licutcuaiit then huug tho four
prisoners, and I nci.i$u took the road.
'lho people not being apprised that
hostilities had broken out, fell easy
victims, and the horrible murderes
and tortures that followed for tho next
few days are sickening to relate ; aud
Irotn that tune to the 1st ot lust hep
tembcr, scarcely u week passed with
out the commission of bloodly deeds
by his baud. His attacks were made
from ambush, and invariably success
ful. Humctiiues he appeared to bo sup
ported by a largo force, and again had
but few followers. Ho wasf olten ro
poricd to bo at tliti rent points nt the
same time, (Veiiieiitly reported dead
uud generally believed to bo crippled
for life. His force was often reported
to huvo dwindled to n more nothing,
while ho would, wheu occasion re
quired, muko u stand with u force suffi
cient to successfully resist all attempts
to tilKO linn.
No mutter what inmnnsions wcrocu
teiliiined regarding him and his foreo,
ouo thing was certain, that ho had for
twel o years successfully resisted all
the power of tho friendly tribes nnd
what tho governments of tho United
States and Mexico brought to bear
against him; and also, that sinco the
1st ol last April ho had bcon as sue

of bloodly woik for nearly four years.
nnd having nt times endeavored to find
him after tho commission of his diro
crimes, but generally being compelled
to travel in such condition mat ne wa
tho last man I desired to meet, it will
not bo a subjcot of wonder that 1 had u
curiosity to meot him and rco whaaud
whut ho is. Accordingly i conimuni
1 now examined his personal ap
pearance, and as so many conflicting
sloriei have been told of him, I will
describe bin, as he appcred to me.
His height is about G feet ; shoulders
slightly rounded by age; features quite
regular; head large and well pro
portioned; countenance rather sad ; hair
long aud black, with some gray ones
intermixed; face smooth, the beard hav
ing been pulled out with pincers, as is
the custom of Indians. ' He wore a
shirt, with pieces of cottou cloth about
Ins loins and bead, nnd moccasins
ovcrcd his feel, which constituted his
oislumc. He is thought to be about
(J) years of age.
Captain Jefferds told me I need not
gi'e myself any concern about articles
I Ud with me, as nothing wonld be
stolm All were curious to see and
hatide everything I had, but, to iheir
crcdr, I must say I did not lose even
a pins worth.
In me morning, breakfast was pre
pared tie same as supper, with the ad
dition ef cake made of mescal and
covered with flour made of mcsuite
beans. It was sweet and nutritious,
nnd would pns for a delicacy any
where. After breakfast, a cloth was
spread upon the uround.flnd the head
men were gathered h round in'a circie.
Cachise then said he would like to
have n talk.
He said be was glad to seo me, and
the faot that I had come among them
unprotected was. an evidence that 1,
bad confidence in his professions ot
peace. He then said that, prior to ts c
ill-treatoient he hud received from
Lieutenant Bascom, he had been a
good fnend of the American, and
since that time he believed he hid
been their worst enemy ; that the time
was within his memory when the plains
were covered, with herds, uud the
mountains were filled with Apaches;
but now the herds were all gone aud
he number of Apaches greatly re
duced : that, when he opened hostili
ties against tho Americans, he and his
tribe mado a promise to fight until the
last one was exterminated, to hold the
country, but now he wus determined to
live in pesco with every one this side
of the Mexican line. 1 told him that
tho conduct of Lieutenant Bascom was
disliked by our people, and, if he bad
not gone to war, liascom would hate
been punished, and many lives would
have been saved. He said he was
now satisfied that it was wrong to go
to wur on that account, and that both
sides wero blamcublo and had suffered
for it. I told him that the president
was anxious that our people aud tho
Apaches should livo in peace together,
and had told mo so three years ug.i.
Ho replied that ho was satisfied the
president was a iiood mas and loved
all his children ; that General Howard
had told him of tho president, and that
he liked General Howard because l o
had tho heart to come aad see him ;
but for a long time provious tho only
friends ho had wero tho rocks, that be
hind them he had concealed himself,
aud they had often protected him from
death by warding off tht bullets of his
I am advised by Captain .lefferd,
that, when those who yield ollegi nco
to tacliiho art all gathered together,
they will numbei from 1,500 to 2,000
of all aires. In tho terms of pcaco re

tho power of tho military authorities.
Their fighting conditions is undoubted
ly better now than at nuv period sincp
they commenced tho war. l'robably
thoy number lws, but thoy have been
inured to such constant hardships
that they uru cupablo of any degree of
endurance. "With improved arms and
heir knowledge of tho use- of them,
my judgment is that thoy are more
formidable than ever before, That ho

The question ia often asked Will
Cachise remain at peace ? This can
ouly bo answered by Ilm who rules
over all. The published reports of
interviawa between him and agents of
the Government, during lha east and
present years iu New Mexieo, of his
professions of peace and the efforts
mado to please bun, and his subsequent
bloody career iu Arizona since last
April, naturally lead to a distrust of
his sincerity now ; but it is said these
reports In many respects were untrue.
aud, if so, Cuchisc may not have acted
as treacherously as they would make
him appear to have done.
My impression is that he is now' in
good earnest, and that he desires peace.
but ho und his followers are wild' mta,'
aud with the best of efforts, opi our
part', aome real or imaginary caBse may
nt any moment aet theui again ou the
warpath, luat a permanent peace
may be secured, should be and is the
wish of every friend of humauity. If
he should remain at peace, then, with
the energetic wur policy General Crook
is now dealing out to hostile ones, our
Apache troubles will soon be ended ;
fur this band has has been the cover
for Indians from tho Grant, White
Mountains, and other Reservations to
go ou raids and return again when their
nefarious work was done.
To me, the most singular cirdum-
stance about these Indians, is the
confidence they bvn iu Captain Jeff
erds, aid the influence he has over
them ; aid learning that he is respec
ted as an honorable man by all .who
know" him, and that' for the pest three
?ears ho has held" interviews with
'schise, and was the only white man
who for twelve years had been ia his
camp and returned alive, it may be in
place to recite the facts connected with
their acquaintance and subsequent
friendship. He is 36 years of age, tall,
aud well-proportioned : was born in
the State of New York; came to Den
ver, Col., in 1857, and practiced' law
for a abort time ; has since spent much
of his time in the mountains, 'prospec
ting for gold and silver; has necn
among nearly all the Indians tribes ol
.North America ; has .made their nab-
ts and peculiarities a study, and is by
nature w.ll qualified to deal with them.
Several.ycars aso, be was Superinten
dent of the Overland Mail Company
aya, auryig.a short period ol time thni
he' waaiin charge; Cachise and his band
killed twenty-one of his employes. He
finally went'to prospecting again, and
made up his mind th3t if the Govern
ment could not subdue so bad an ene
my, he would try- and make him a
friend, and, by the help of other In
diuus, ho visited Cachise in his own
camp. This act inspired Cachiso with
profound respect' for his eouruge aud
siuirity. Through Captain Jefferds.
Cucliiw; was brought to Canada Al
amtsi Reservation in1871, and by him
General Howard was' led to-liis camp.
Genenl Heward appointed him Spec
ial Indian Aeut, and I do not be
ticve any othur man living could now
manage them, wild as they arc ; ,and
I have strong hopes if the Govtirnmom,
will continue him in charge that pcact
may bo maintained.'
In this connection, I desire to say
that' one of the most fatal mistakes, ii
my judgment, made by the Govern
tuent iu dealing with' the Indians, is
the selection ot Agents because they
belong to uny particular rcl gious de
nomination. No doubt, the purpose
of the choice is good, but practically ii
proves uotgood. To govern and man
uge wild Indians successfully requires
peculiar qualifications. An Agent
should not only bo honest,- truthful,
aud just to botu Indians nnd citizens,
but he should also be patient, cool,
und possessed of plenty of nenc.
Nothing so soon destroys the confi
dence of Indians as to know their
Agent fears them ; besides, it requires
years of acquaintance and experience
to understand the Indian character.
Without this knowledge in advance,
low Agents attain it in time to be suc
cessful. Nowhero can such efficient
Agents bo found as in the country
where tho Indians live. The fact
that General Howard has alreudy se
lected two in this country to fill the
most difficult places among tho Apaches
is evidence tbnt he is of tho same
opinion. Tucson Correspondence of

owners of timber laud just now re mo to

out of ten it will pay better as an in

inducciucut for the construction of
railways to reach these timber lands

which is already a speciality with
nursery-nien, who provide the small

has been cleared up, aud now lying to

slower growth than the chestnut, yet
grows rapidly, and tho wood is very
valuable ; some varieties arc especially
adapted to wet swampy lands. Fur
ornamental foliaec, and for the sugar,
the maple should be one of the most
popular trees. The ash gros vigor,

be properly secured, and when a light
snow falls, it should be firmly trodden
down around each tree, to keep the
mice from gnawing the bark. It is a
good practice to raise a mound of
earth, a foot high, around tho trunks
of newly-set trees,- as a support for
them during the high winds, as well as

green parrot. , Who's there?" cried
the porter outside. " It's I, tho man

parrot, which so enraged tho man that
