Navajo Indians Appeal for Justice Under
Writ of Habeas Corpus Will Be
Heard in Tombstone.
CLAIM THEY WERE NOT GIVEN FAIR TRIAL
It now appears that the history of
the famous Navajo Indian outbreak
near the Navajo reservation on the
Utah and Arizona line during March
last will be reviewed in Tombstone be
fore Judge Doan.
Eight of the leaders arrested by tbe
government are under sentence at
Fort Huachuca. Now the eight pris
oners, with unpronounceable names,

have taken their case into the courts,

Arizonans, having apolied for a writ
of heabas corpus in their interest.

They claim they were
arrested and sentenced by the military
authorities without trial or hearing of
any kind, and aert they are wrongly

The case of tese Indians has been
tbe cause of many military reportr.
In brief, the outbreak of the Indians
occurred last March and caueed much
alarm. A special acent of the govern

'the worst medicine men bedeported,"
After consultation the authorities de
cided to capture Badal-le and his im
mediate followeit. Accordingly at
break of day one morning in March
the band was surprised by troopers
and captured, not, however, until
three Indisne had been killed and one
soldier injured. The redskins were
finally disbanded, and sent to var'ous
military prisons, the leader and seven
others being sentenced to Fort Hua
chuca. The charges against the Navajos are
defiance of the government, internal
dissension, rioting, habitual trouble
making and obstruction of the educa
tion of the Indian childron.
The hearing of the writ has been
set for January 0th. when the redmea
who were on the warpath will doubt
less be brought to Tombstone.
