Price per Year, $5; Six Months, $3 TTJO S0.3KT, ARIZONA Saturday, - - Oct. 7, 1871. TO OUR PATRONS. This number closes the first year of The Arizona Citizex, and wo as sure all interested that the present proprietor, health and life being con tinued to him as in the past, will twelve months hence announce the close of its second year. "We have no other promises for the future, and the past is just what it is, and but little of it would be changed or modified if it were possible to do it. The Cm- jjen is independent in the completest sense of the word, and no person but the proprietor is in any manner suf fered to admit or exclude matter from its columns. In this respect there mil be no change. Those who desire their subscriptions which expire to-day, continued for longer period, will please advise our carrier or ourself in Tucson ; Colonel H. A. Bigelow, of Prescott, will, w have no doubt, forward any informs, tion on this subject which may be given him ; "W. A. Hancock, of Phe nix, will do likewise; Schneider, Grierson & Co., are our agents at Ari zona City; Joseph Collingwood, at Florence, is hereby authorized to re ceivje and aceipt for subscription money. Those about military camps and at stations on the various roads can notify us by mail, if they wish the paper continued to them. Re ceipts of money will be promptly ac knov.edged. The paper will not be stopped to distant v subscribers until they shall have had time to advise us or our agents that they do or do not want it hereafter. WHY. If any one doubts why a few men favor Yincent Colyer's reservation and bribery system of pacifying the un repentant savages, we call his atten tion to the communication written by an intelligent and well informed cor respondent with Captain Guy Y, Henry's command. Blankets worth 3 apiece are purchased and given to the Indian, and our correspondent declares the Government is charged $10 therefor; shirts worth 25 cents in the market, Uncle Sam is charged 2 for. "We know that some of those interested in this species of civil izing the poor Indian, have sought to make converts to the plan by assur ing them that the coming Congress would make large appropriations for these reservation Indians, and that " big contracts " would follow. "What amazing love and Christian interest is here shown for the "poor Indian.' "What patriotic devotion to a govern inent burdened with debt and some what taxed J A KING. "We only need refer to history to show that American citizens are not partic ularly in love with kings or their rule, notwithstanding here and there one indicates a willingness to play the parts of absolute monarchs. Mr. Yin- cent Colyer seems to be of the latter precious nobles. His conduct in Ari zona was quite regal. Ho loved to indicate that his powers were un limited and for their exercise there would be no accountability. Ho as sumed to be the government, with Uncle Sam, the Stars and Stripes, the American Jiagle, Hail Columbia Yankee Doodle, the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and the laws in pursuance thereof, all left out. He evidently is a great man in Yin cent Colyer's estimation. It is a noor country that can't have one man of despotic presumption. As such, Y. C is admirable to the " merciless sav ages," as the Declaration of fnue pendenco termed them. GEN. CROOK'S OPERATIONS. Disposition of the Troops Value of In dian Allies Proven Chance for True Philanthropists A Couple of Pictures for Public Consideration Beicarding Thieves and Murderers w Iw Does It. My last letter was from McDowell On arriving there unofficial word was received from General Crook that the Peace Commissioners had come out, and that the war was virtually stopped: even if the Commissioners had only certain fields of operation, the Indians, if pursued, would of course run on and off the reservations as they saw fit, rendering perfectly useless any work of the troops. Troop P, Captain Alex. Moore, was sent to Tucson; Troop H, Third Cavalry, Captain Prank Stanwood, and Lieu tenant Robinson, A. Q. M., was or dered to Camp Grant ; and Troop D, Third Cavalry, Captain Guy Y. Henry and Lieutenant "W. H. Andrews, was to return to Camp Apache in order to escort to their homes (and at the same time to prevent them from killing any Indians, giving the Peace Commission any cause of complaint,) the Apache Indians of the tribes of Miguel, Chi- quito Capitan and Pedro, who had served as our allies, lhese men had done good service, and had our war continued, would have practically il lustrated the wisdom of General Crook in arming them the first time the experiment has been tried in Ari zona. The usual marches across tne country, climbing one mountain to seo another higher one beyond, defining cavalry in Arizona to bo a Corps in which you walk, have the privilege tj help your horse he in return carr.- ing your saddle was our fate till Ar riving at Canon creek; atJuiisRnnt we were met by a deputaion of In dians who informed us tlat the Peace Commissioners were of Apache, and that the Indians wfre there in num bers, and in their opinion had gone in for fear of our Indian soldiers and the effect upon others ; the chiefs fearing that some oi' heir Indians might turn against theih-v thus proving that General Crook was doing and had done a great deal towards peace and a permanent one. The tribes of our Indian friends were nearly all starved quite a number sick with fever, and 14 dead ; they were indeed m a pitia ble condition, and if missionaries wish a place for doing good, they have an abundant field for operations in Ari zona, and the sooner they come the better. Excuse us, but at this moment wo heard our Pirst Sergeant say to the cook: "Are your beans boiled soft r The cook said: "No, sir; it they don't rattle, the boys swear they don't get any. I suppose a missionary hero would not get enough, credit, so they do not come. A great responsibility rests upon the American nation tor the abject, pitiable condition in Avhich the Indian is allowed to remain. Y e will now present two pictures to view, and let the American people nudge upon which they preter the curtain to drop. A picture is a Vad simile for me, as I can neither paint nor draw. A the atrical grouping would bo equally bad, for we don't have theaters in Ar izona. Jiiy nrst picture represents General Crook as ordered to the De partment, as its commanding officer ; man ot character, a soldier (and necessarily a Christian and gentle man), selected for solving the Indian problem, not by killing all, as people imagine, but as in Uregon, punishing the bad and causing the rest to be put on reserves and taught the advantages of civilization, in farming, raising stock, etc. At a great expense he or ganizes his pack trains, buys horses for his troops, (said troops being com posed or the old Xiiird Horse or Mounted Rifles, than whom no finer or gallant regiment ever was organ ized, and a part of the Pirst Horse, of line name and reputation, their num ber indicating their condition), sends word for good Indians to come in, or ganizes them as scouts, travels over the country to learn all about it for his "Winter campaign, and when he has all ready to bring about a perma nent peace, lo 1 the curtain drops, and the great American nation views Pic ture No. 2. An entirely civil scene, details being as follows; In the fore ground is Mr. Yincent Colyer, a gen tleman ana unristian, ana one in whoso views every army officer will coincide (that is do all you can first to civilize tho Indians, that failing, kill the bad ones). In tho back ground are his assistants, who avc do not pre tend to say in this case, but in the enerality of cases, far from aid their chiefs ; Indians arc called in, provided Avith blankets, shirts and food. Cost of blankets as charged to the Govern ment, $10; cost of quality actually delivered to Indians, about 3 proba bly a condemned one at that ; shirt, as charged to Uncle Sam 2, cost ac tually 25 cents. The difference in the above amounts, I don't say is appro priated to themselves, or if it is, be comes a conscience fund, and therefore is all right. After a few weeks, the Commissioners leave of course they would not livo in Arizona, Indians become hostile, and the curtain falls on Picture No. 2 ; and again at great expense i3 the curtain on No. 1 raised. How long, yeG great American nation, will ye be gulled and cheated out of your money? As long as you are Americans, I suppose or, at any rate, in Arizona, till the curtain of Picture No. 1 is allowed to remain up for one year at least. Look and decide for yourselves, but don't blame the army. "We will get to Apache to-morrow will rest there a few days and then re turn to our Post. If we find any news at Apache, will add a line. If not, when our curtain rises again, will let you know what General Crook with the old Third Horse is doing on the stage. ' ' Since arriving at Camp Apache, have found Mr. Colver had been here. The Indians who had run off ,W Government herd and killed the herfder Avere in, ana had been treated 3i ) r-.Vl U 4-1 il 1 had been our constant friends Mr. Colyer giving at Government 6st a sort of reward or stimulus fo other Indians to imitate them. Some months ago, thelndjais about Camp Apache had actfct go badly that lr- r n i J ' ,1 ; -r iLLttjur urruuu, vyouuianoing tnat .rose, felt it to be his juty .to report thatex- tTenvftjjumshmait would be necessary t put antfkeep them on good behavior ; land since, we are credibly informed that he Tias seen still stronger reasons- far another report of jo same, kind. "We have not hesitated to criticise tie Major with much freedom; but?he"Ayiil; always find us ready to credit;'-him' Avith good public actions, and- wo consider that he has done a valuable- deed in truly making known the dis-: position of the Indian as he knows;it by experience. ."T In five days after Colyer gave Es- cult-ta-see-la's band liundreds, r am" Ave believe thousands of dollar in presents at tho pullic of them stole lo hote.frjdm near the Post. Avhich belonged to the beef con tractor, and forsono'AA-eeks thereafter, if indeed vet, novaccount could be had of the thievsr property. "We pre sume Colyer neglected to give them horses', and hence they stole them. It Avas a natural act for them to do. "We hope to have the pleasure of learning that Major Green truly reported this work of tho savages Avho are Avilling to accept bribes and despise the briber, and go right on AA'ith their atrocities. " The Arizona Prce Press " is the title of a paper Avhich appeared Sep tember 30, by D. A. Gordon, editor and proprietor. Location, Arizona City. Price, 5,00 per annum and 3,00 for six months. It is quite Avell printed and the feAV defects are promised to be remedied at an early day. The first number Avas printed in San Diego, be cause transjiortation for the material Avas not available, but it is to be soon done in Arizona City. Under these circumstances, local matter and adver tisements are necessarily scarce in the initial number. The paper is one column less in size than The Citizen. If its performance shall equal its prom ises, it will deserve success, and Ave freely Avelcome the proprietor and his paper to Arizona and wish it may make him rich and happy: Mek of common sense are under the impression that the presence and activity of thieving and murderous savages in Arizona, is tho reason Ahy troops are here, but judging by his acts, Yincent Colyer holds that they are here to protect such savages and op press the citizens.
