The commissiener of Indian affairs
in his reply to Supt. Cheyney, says :
"I am a Western man. My father
was a pioneer who settled among the
Indians when his nearest white neigh

known something of Indian character
all my life and am familiar by person
al observation with the condition of
-Indians throughout the Indian coun

Arizona, visiting all our schools and
acquainting myself with the habits
and condition of the Indians as fully
as possible, and while I realize how
difficult the work is, I am encouraged
by that already accomplished and feel
very hopeful for the future. I wish to
correct the misapprehension which is
in your mind regarding tho renegade

Lieut. Flipper writes for theNogales
Record, giving the result of his inves
tigation regarding Arizona grants.
"Upon examining tho list." says he,
I find the following Arizona private
land claims are duly recorded for the
amounts I give:
San Rafael de i.a Zan.ta for four
sitios. Titlo issued in 1825.
San Ignacio de Babacomari for eight
sitios. Title issued in 1832.
San Juan de las Boquillas yNogales
for four sitios. Title issued in 1833.
San Ignacio de la Canoa report of
survey of four sitios on file. It does
not appear that a title was ever issoed.
San Rafael del Valle for four leagues.
Title issued in 1832.
San Jose da Sonoita for one and
three-fourths sitios. Title issued in
Tres Alamos. Report of survey on
record. It does not appear that a title
was ever issued.
A careful examination of this list of
104 large octavo pages fails to disclose
the record of any other of our Arizona
private land claims.
Iu view of the probably early organ
ization of the Land Court, the fore
going information may be of use to
the settlers on these several 'grants.' "

James Speedy, constable of Nogales,
last Saturday returned to this post two
deserters from the army. The sixty
dollar reward makes the many eyes of
all the sheriffs, constables and civili

men who have deserted their posts in
the army. They can see three times
as far and step five times as quick as
they could when only thirty dollars
