Phoenix, Ariz., Dec. 29. 1897.
Tho Attorney General,
JYVa&hinciton, D. C.
to your favor of Juno 28th,
'S. B. S. F. 8757-1895" relative to
alleged outrages committed by the
Sheriff of CocoUlno county, Arizona
against the Navajo Indians, I have to
report that I hivo made as full Inves
tigation as is possiblo and 11 nd that
complaint to bo without any founda
tion in fact.
Befoio begiunlng tho luvostisralion

not inako oath to the same (though iu
his letter he had uot iudlcatcd that
tho snuio was stated upon information,
but had alleged the samo to be facts).
I havo waited for the statements from
tho Indians thiough Mr. Tiptou but
I havo failed to receive auy Information

am bound to take their statements
as ti no.
Moreover, an nualysis of Mr. Tip
ton's letter which ho cannot swear to,
oi'ght to convince nnyono it seems to
mo of his reckless liso of tho hyperbole.
The Indian vocabulary is very limited
aud tho imagination and A ivid coloring
of tho wi'iter is easily discovered when
he reports that tho Indians repented
to him such sentences as follows:
"They pleaded for a reasonable lime
within which to get out; but even this
was inexorably denied; aud, amid the
touching cries of suffering and feat-
stricken children aud tho weeping of

A reporter of tho Phoenix Republi
can has interviewed Gov. McCord aud
the Governor is very much In favor of
statehood and Is bitterly opposed to
homo rule. By advocating statehood
tho governor knows thnt ho will hold
bis job, for ho well kuows that the
present administration is opposed to
tho admission of Arizona.
Tlio governor will bo offered an op
poi luulty to use his iufluenco for state
hood, for the bill for admission will
bo pieseutcd first and pushed to a
voto. It will then dovolop that the
administration is bitterly opposed to
admission and the governor's advocaoy
of statehood will be u flat failure but
It will uot causo him much regret as
