In all tho counties of Arizoua, ex

silver and gold leads are numerous.
Silver mining has been neglected on
account of the low price of silver, but
the report says that Arizoua is in re
ality richer iu gold ore than in silver
ore. Tho output of gold for the past

Statements furnish6d by five of the

tho Territory show an output ot that
metal for tho year of 01,210,331
pounds. Tho total product of copper
for tho year is estimated at 71,210,331

Nineteen and a half miles of railroad

There are 3,800 Indians on reserva
tions in tho Territory. The red men,

from their reservations and commit
depredations upon tho property of
settlers. The loss sustained from this
source by the cattle men of Pima
County in tho last live years is esti
mated at $300,000.
Tho report dwells at length upon
the advantages to come from irriga

that the splendid reservoir sites avail

Educational advantages are said to
no excellent, anil gratiucation is ex
pressed over tho fact that the percent
age of children enrolled in the schools
was 7G per cent last year, while in
New York Slate it was only 59 per
cent. On tho subject of statehood, the
"Too people of this Territory bo
lieve that they should bo given State

promise moro for the future than
many of tho States that have been
heretofore admitted. The question of
statehood should not be made a ques

right and justice."

Conference With the Indians About
Win. Garland, president of the Gila
Valley, Globe anil Northern railroad,
accompanied by his stenographer, W.
S. Laird, arrived on Wednesday from
San Carlos, where ho had been to hold
a conference relative to the right-of-way
across the reservation for his
road. Arrangements have been per
fected to resume tho construction of
the road west from Geronimo, and all
that remains to be done is to gain tho
consent of the Indians. For that pur
pose a conference was held at San
Carlos Wednesday morning, betweeu
Acting Indian 'Agent.Albert b.Myerii
President Wm. Garland aud about 70
Indians representing the various tribes.
Owing to the Gila river being unford
able all the tribes were not represent
ed, but to those present Capl. Myer
aud Mr. Garland explained the law
passed at '.he last session of Congress
granting to the railroad right-of-way
across the reservation, dependent upon
tho couseut- of the Indians. Capt.
Myer explained the law in detail, and
his instructions from the Interior De
partment; and Mr. Garland spoke of
the benefits which would result to the
Indians themselves, enlarging the
market tor their products, and giving
them employment. The Indians
seemed well satisfied with tho expla
nation. Another conference will bo
had tomorrow morning, when it is
hoped all the tribes aud bands of In
dians will bo represented. We aro
pleased to learn that Capt. Myer wilt
co-operate with Mr. Garland to secure
the consent of the Indians tipoti an
cquitablo basis to have the railroad
come through, aud wo aro assured
that when that is obtained construc
tion work will bo resumed at Geroui
mo within 30 days, and the road com
pleted to San Carlos beforo spring.
The result of tomorrow's conference
will bo published iu our next issue
