and other
Accounts or the Chicago nre can
be read with composure compared
with those of the fires raging in sev
eral of the Western States. In Chi
cago about sixty or seventy lives were
lost and an immense amount of prop
erty; in the other cases, the loss of
life amounts to at least 1,500 and of
property so great that no estimate has
come to hand. Extensive and destruc
tive fires have for several weeks raged
in Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, In
diana, Ohio and New York, but Wis
consin has been scourged far above
all. The towns of Friendship,
Brussells, Menomonee, Green Bay,
Forrestville, Marinett, Mennekonne,
Peshtigo and others have suffered se
verely in loss of life and some of them
are almost destroyed. Peshtigo, a'
place of 1,749 inhabitants, is totally
reduced to ashes, and more than half
its people dead and suffering and the
remainder destitute. Indeed so great
is the number of dead and the gen
eral suffering among the living, that
the thought of losses of property is
banished from the public mind. It is
safe to say that no calamities by fire
of such magnitude ever befell the
people o this nation, as those of
.which wo write; and indeed never
was there such a loosening of purse
strings and free outpouring of money
and supplies, as are now going on in
behalf of the sufferers. Up to the
25th of October, it Avas estimated that
twenty-five millions of noney and
supplies had been contributed and the
good work was going on with profuse
liberality. With all thac may be said
of the grasping traits of Americans,
their charitable ones are unparalleled.
These great calamities bring prac
tically to view the noblest traits of
man, and show that deep down in the
hearts of the mass of our people are
living, available good qualities un
tainted by selfishness.
The San Diego Union is incom
parably the most valuable daily news
laper of its size of which we have
any knowledge. It is almost a mar
vel to us how its proprietors can af
ford to give the public so good a
paper under the circumstances, but
we presume it is liberally patronized
at home where it so justly deserves to
be, for it is never one day unmindful
of tho best interests of San Diego
and all others tributary thereto. Ari
zona people should patronize The
Union, for it is zealous in their be
half. Those who do not care for the
Daily can get the Weekly at 5 per
year, and Ave can assure all our readers
that it is well worth the money in
fact is a live newspaper, and always
has the latest telegraphic news and all
the more important matter of the

Will our exchanges please note the
following fact ?
The very few men in Arizona who
are standing in with the lndiau King
and savages and against the settlers,
excuse themselves in this way : They
say that there is no use to oppose Col
yer' s policy for it will prevail, there
fore the best thing to do is to act with
him and make all the money they can;
as there will be many chances to do
so. This is a simple statement of the
truth in the premises, though the de
based toadies often vary the form but
not the spirit of their excuse.
Wo never envy men who crouch
down and say to their official superiors
kick us, spit in our faces, and de
soise us as you will, but graciously
permit us to do your dirtiest work and
put somo money in our purses no
matter how badly the public is out-
rno-fid and robbed. No! such self-
pronounced tools are not subjects' of
ADVICE.
Hardly a mail arrives which does
not bring letters from some person
asking about Arizona and our advico
as to coming hither to engage in some
occupation or business. With its
moderate climate and vast area of
hills, valleys and plains wholly un
occupied and unclaimed, we can easily
and truthfully give a tempting reply
as to the Territory's intrinsic merits,
but our advice must be to stay away,
as any other would make us accessory
to murder. John Montgomery, of the
San Pedro, informed us some weeks
ago that quite a large number of his
friends eastward sought his advice on
the subject and even wanted it to be
favorable, but having helped to bury
so many of his neighbors who had
fallen by the murderous Apaches in
his own neighborhood, and being an
honest man, he emphatically objected
to their coming to this graveyard.
And so with other men. Excepting a
few limited settlements, the whole
Territory is unsafo for both life and
property. It is idle and even crimi
nal to make any other representation.
Before the advent of Colyer, we could
convey a hope to our correspondents
that peace and safety would prevail
here in a comparatively short tinie ;
but since that date, in the light of his
acts and boasts that his policy was
the one that would prevail for six
years to come, despondency has seized
upon the mass of the people. Some
of the best men are discouraged and
anxious to dispose of what little the
Apaches have not stolen, and get
away where if the people are no bet
ter citizens of the United States, they
get that protection of person and
property due them.
We are pained to write thus when
an influx of population is so much
needed, but as before stated, wo would
deem it a species of criminality not to
let the facts be known. Colyer trav
eled safely in Arizona under a strong
escort of troops at tho public expense.
Citizens cannot do so, nor should they,
but Government should subjugate the
savages so tney couia singly or in
squads travel and pursue their avoca
tions in safety. They ask no more
and aro entitled to no less. At pres
ent there is no safety' from savages
over bv far the largest share ot
Arizona.
The Borderer, at Las Cruces, has
recently struck the tune sung by the
Santa Fe papers in honor of Pope and
Piper, but seems a little cool 'on Col
yer and Cachise. Probably Pope's
piper has discovered that he fooled
away his warm embraces on another
Indian than Cachise, and that the
latter has refused to disgrace himself
by the proffered association, and hence
tiie latest journalistic convert may
have been instructed to not bo as
sweet on Cachise as the Santa Fe ac
commodations.
There is a report here via the pro
posed telegraph of the Texas Pacific
Railway, that Pope cornered The
Borderer innocent and repeatedly read
to him the latter part of Act I, of
Othello, wherein Iago impresses the
Yenitian gentleman, Roderigo, with
the importance of putting money in
his purse, and in sheer self-defense ye
man of the quill yielded a reluctant
consent to act accordingly with sub
stantial assistance. But this is doubt
less a most base and false report, and
as such we must brand it, for even
Pope's winsome ways could hardly
conceal from ye sharp editor, Iago's
soliloquy wherein he says :
Thus do I ever make my fool my purse
For I mine own gain'd knowledge should
profane,
If I would time expend with such a 6nipe,
But for my sport ana prolit.
Wo shall promptly arrest all bad
reports about The Borderer, notwith
standing it first doubted Cachise's
presence at Canon Alamoso, and by
somo magic influence soon after helped
to impress the public that ho was there,
It would almost be fatal for Poper
and Pipah, if they should not have
Cachise ana the tact should be so
established. Cachise evidently was
careless of P. & P's reputation when
pursuing his late labors in the San
Simon valley and Chiricahua mountains.
PIMAS KILL APACHES.
Oh ! where now is the good old Col
yer ? - The Pima Indians have again
killed thirty-two Apaches near Camp
Apache, and returned to Sanford on
the 31st October with eight children
as prisoners. They report none of
their own party hurt other than that
some of them got bruised by falling
off their horses, tho fight being a
running one on a rocky mesa. Our
correspondent says and a letter to
Sheriff Ott has the same statement
that the Pimas recovered a wagon
cover and some yellow blankets which
tho Apaches had stolen from the
whites they had murdered.
Our correspondent adds Can't you
take measures to have these Pimas
indicted for this outrage ? As to this
"business," we are willing to let
Colyer & Co. work up the case.
While we are just now and at all
times anxious for the amplest protec
tion and most iudicious assistance
being given to all well disposed In
dians such as tho Pimas and Papagos
yet we shall not devote much atten
tion to their interests until a reasonable
share of safety is guaranteed to th
self-subsisting, toiling, neglected, robf-
bed and abused settlers.
But truly here is another " outrage,'
though not much larger than the on
recently executed in Los Angeles byi
white men, an account of which
elsewhere given. We are of opinion
that the comparatively good Pimas
who earn their own living, watched
with much interest the gratuities and
extra kind consideration the saintly
Colyer bestowed upon the murderous
Apaches, and liko the Chief Miguel
at White mountains, saw that tho
most fiendish murderers were best re
warded, and therefore determined to
qualify themselves for gifts as quickly
as possible. But alas for the credulous
and common sense Pimas, their ef
forts have been directed against Col
yer's especial proteges. They should
have humbly imitated him and
turned their guns on the settlers as
do the Apaches, in order to win favors
from the well provided stores of Col
yer. No, we can't assist in getting
tho Pimas indicted. It is a species
of filthy work which unfortunately
there are two or three others who
deem it their exclusive honor to per
form, and wo aro not ambitious to
divide such honors with men who
seem to be destitute of even better
aspirations.
Probably a Fraud.
It seems by our correspondence fr
Camp Bowie, as well as other reports
hitherto made, that the bruited firm of
"Cachise, Poper & Pipah," with busi
ness office at Canon Alamosa, and
published to the world with such self-
glorification and cordiality of em
braces between the senior and junior
members, is and was a fraud, and that
as a matter of fact it never had any
existence. For this reason we declined
to give the alleged firm the ordinary
business notice at tho time of its re
ported organization. We had faith
that Cachise would never condescend
to go into "business" with Indian
agents not even with the divine Col
yer ; although wo well understood the
anxiety of the paleface agents to im
prove their credit by taking in with
them the famous chief murderer of
industrious citizens.
That no injury may inure to any of
tho parlies to the alleged new firm, we
now state that it may have a genuine
existence and if it so prove, we shall
properly make the amende honorable, and
notice its "business." In the mean
time, Captain Russell will take notice
that its' field of operations is likely to
be broad, and that any interference
with Cachise's part of the "business"
will meet with prompt resistance and
perhaps punishment. Hence our
anxiety to deal fairly by the " outfit."
Our accommodating Santa Fe ex
changes speak of some murders and
outrages perpetrated over that way by
the " natives." It might be imperti
nent to inquire what natives they so
childlike and blandly refer to, and
hence we 11 not do it.
