Ho further states that Mormon Institu

tho Apaches. He is pursuaded thalthey can

President Granl'e Indian policy, and this
will also opon up that eountry to settle

has any money deposited in tho Bank of

Waiiiikotov, April It. A telegram
from Oon. Canby, dated at Tule Itke, Cal
ifornla, April 7, and forwarded by cour
ier to Y reka, California, wat received by
Oen, Sherman, In which Gen. Canby itatei
ho had teen the Instructions tent to tba
peace commissioner! by the secretaiy of
the Interior, and continual: "If the
Modoc surrender at prisoner ot
war, tba general government would have
paramount and executive jurisdiction over
til, and the same result would be it&urtd
by tba traaty. But ara not traatle , with
IndUn irlbia prohibits W recent legUU-
tion? A reservation within the limits of
either California or Oregon would not bar
italo jurisdiction till alter its cessation by
these states, and would have DO
relative affect, and for crimes committed
within the limits of tuch reservation,
it it doMbtful under Justice Miller't decis
ions under the Kansas reservation,
whether state jurisdiction would not pre
vail. At the murder of citizens wat com
mitted boyond the limits of any reserva
tion, and within the jurisdiction of the two
states, and of courso anterior to
any arrangement ,wlth the Modocs,
I do not question the right or power of the
general government t? make any ar
rangement that may bo thought proper,
bit I think they should make such at to
tocure permanent peace, together with
liberal and just treatment of the Indians.
In my judgment peace cannot be ttcured
iftheyaro allowed to romaln In tbit im
mediate neighborhood. Tho MjJjci are
now sensible thoy can't live
in peace on Lost river, and
have abandoned their claim to it, but wish
to be loft on the lava beds. This means
license to plunder, and a stronghold to
retreat to, and was refused, .Their last
proposition is to come In and bavo an op
portunity of looking for a now camp not
far away, and if they are sincere in this
the trouble will bo soon ended; but
there has boon to much vacillation
and duplicity in their talks, that I bavo
hesitated about reporting till some deflnite
result was Attained. A movement of
troops hat been made, an 1 cautiously, so
as to avoid a collison, and to impress the
Indians tbatw have been friendly, thns
far wo have succeeded very well, but their
conduct has glvoa so much reason to ap
prehend that they aro only trying to gain
time, that I have organixed a party of
scouts to operate with the troops if tbey
should go to the mountains or renow hos
tilities. FROM ROME.
