COLYER'S PREDETERMINED
REPORTS.
Vincent Colyer's visit to Arizona
seems to have been only intended, so
far as himself was concerned, a mere
excuse for the report which ho had
determined upon making. He is
either a monomaniac on the Indian
question, or a deliberate liar- and it
seems an unwarrantablo stretch of
charity , to admit that he is a lunatic
The following is a Washington dis
patch of date October 27 :
Vincent Colyer who has returned
here, represents the Apaches in Ari
zona and .New Mexico to be in a
starving condition, and eager to ac
cept offers of peace. Coule, chief of
the Apache Mohaves, was so reduced
by starvation that he could not speak
for several hours. They complain
against the whites taking possession
of their country, and that whenever
they went to the Government posts
they were hunted by scouts and shot.
At Canada Alamoso, New Mexico, the
Indians were invited and came in
manifesting a friendly disposition and
policy. Colyer pronounces as untrue
that there were any depredations com
mitted at Camp Grant or that he in
terfered in the movements of General
Crook. Cachise and twenty warriors
came on the Reservation at Canada
Alamoso. He and other Apache
chiefs will visit Washington during
the winter.
It requires patience equal to that of
Job, to treat of Colyer, and his actions,
and reports, in a temperate manner.
It is our deliberate judgment, that of
all unfit men ever intrusted with any
public service, this man is pre-eminently
most unfit, and we are rejoiced to
know that the Secretary of the Interior
regards him as "utterly impracticable;"
but while he holds position and uses i
in behalf of thieves and murderers, ex
pends the people's money in efforts to
impress the country at large that cer
tain statements are true which are ab
solutely false, to the great injury of
the ten thousand people who are try
ing to open up to civilization a Terri
tory organized by Congress, we must
pay heed to his course. For the first
time in the history of tho United
States, we now witness a prominent
officer of the Indian Bureau trying
with all his energy to make the gov
ernment treat the citizens of a Avhole
Territory as enemies of their country,
and at the same time reward without
sense or justice a lot of barbarous
savages, historically known as the
worst on tho continent.
Now a few remarks on the above
dispatch, and first as to the Apaches
being in a starving condition. If they
arc any worse off in this respect than
at any time for the past 100 years,
Colyer had no evidence thereof, and
hence his mere assertion of it is ex
tremely worthless; and his attempt
to convey the idea that the whites are
to blame for their pretended destitu
tion, is a mean insinuation only to be
expected cf one of those base creatures
who- abandons the ministry and de
grades his former calling by asking
the blessing of God upon his infamous
work.
Second, as to the eagerness of the
Apaches to accept peice, "Robbers or
murderers always prefer rewards in
stead of punishment for their crimes,
and also prefer to accoor,. without labbr
or danger, food and elbthing that the
would otherwise steak and often
company tho theft witi murder. Fi
these reasons a few Apaches were
" eager to accept offers of peace."
Third, that whenevol ttd Apac
went to government po.'ts, they were
hunted by scouts andPshot. Except
in a single instance, w6,are quite sure
the true history of Arizpna will show
this statement to be most shameful
falsehood ; and '. h it whlo the murder
ing Apaches wore f r .i Camps Good'
win, Apache, Date Creek and other
places, they wore never so hunted and
shot, but that on the contr ary while
being nurtured at those posts, it was
the Apaches' practice to send out scouts
to hunt and rob and shoot citizens,
mail carriers, travelers and teamsters
generally, and right here we will in
troduce an aihdavit because it is
fresh to the point, and truo :
Marcario Romero, aged 20 years,
born in Tucson, being duly sworn,
deposes and says, that on or about the
28th day of October LS71, he arrived
at Camp Gnnt, and that on or about
the 30th daj of October 1871, in the
morning, h left Camp Grant; that
he went to amp Grant as driver of
the carnac- of the liev. Bishop bal-
pointe, from Tucson : that while at
Camp Grant, he saw two horses, of a
light dun color, which two horses are
the property of Pedro IKrruel of San
Xavier, and that he hai known the
two horses for two years as the prop
erty of Pedro Burruol, and krftws
that they were stolen from him at
San Xavier; also, that he saw at
Camp Grant a whitish cray mare ;
that said mare is the property of a
man namtd Miguel Ortiz who carries
the mail from Tucson to Sasabe Flat,
and that he loaned the mare to T.
Sotelo who made a trip in his place
on or about the 10th or 11th day of
September 1871, and v,-as killed about
five miles south of ') icson while re
turning with the XL ted States mail
from Zazabe Flat oi. he 13th day of
September 18 i 1, at v- ?h time he had
said whitish gray mare and was rid
ing her ; also saw at the same time,
at Camp Grant, a piece of striped
blanket, which he knows the mur
dered man had when he left with the
mail for Zazabe Flat, on or about the
10th or 11th of September 1871 : also
that all the above mentioned property
the two horses, the whitish gray
mare and thepieceof striped blan.kct.at
the time he saw them, was in the pos
session of the Apache Indians at
Camp Grant, Arizona Territory.
(signed) : Marcakio Homero.
Subscribed and sworn to before me
this 3d day of November 1871.
Charles H. Meyers,
Justice of the Peace, Pima county.
Since the above affidavit was taken
the identical saddle used by Sotello
when killed, has beon brought from
Camp Grant and proven by affidavit!
of the lawful owner; also, a gra;
mare stolen from the Papago Indian!
about the same time of Sotello' s mur
der ; and both saddle and mare Averel
hnnrrhf. -from an Anaeho.nf. frraiit bv a
written permission of Lieutenant R.
E. Whitman which see elsewhere,
Leopoldo Carrillo, of Tucson, has
now in his possession a mule which
was stolen with other animals near
this town, and but two weeks ago re
covered directly of the Apaches fed
and fostered at Camp Grant. A hun-
dred rormtablft citizens can testifr to .
this statement.
The late United States -'rand Jury
found absolute evidence tu.b the Apa
ches, while being fed at diup Grant,
and that, too, prior to tho only time
they were ever molested y scouts of
any kind, killed L. B. "Woostor and
Trinidad Lruerra at Tubac. It like-
wise found evidence that, with lew ,
exceptions, all the dej -nidations and
murders committed south of tho Gila j
river while Indians were led at Good
win, Apache or Grant, were by the
very same Government-fed Apaches.
And this answer is all sufficient as re
gards the denial of Colyer that any
depredations were committed by the
Camp Grant Indians, and he knows
that Es-ke-van-zin acknowledged to
him in person that he killed Charles
McKinnoy in sight of that post.
Fourth, as to his not interfering
with General Crook. The Los Ange
les dispatch to tho San Erancisco press
unquestionably dictated by himself,
says that he did annul a most impor
tant order of General Crook the one
enlisting Indians in accordance with
an Act of Congress to fight the hostile
Apaches. And his whole course of
action here had, and could have, and
did have, no other than a fatal effect
on Crook's plans, and of this we are
perfectly willing to accept the testi
mony of the General himself.
In tho fifth and sixth items, regard
ing the going of Cachise to Canada
Alamoso and to Washington ; the first
is quite certainly false, though by re
port ho had a shadow of excuse for
asserting it ; but as to the second, it
was falsely and presumptuously made
to bolster up the most disgraceful
farce ever enacted in the name of law
by an American officer we mean, in
its broadest sense, the visit of Colyer
to New Mexico and Arizona.
Chicago.
The Chicago Tribune of October
20 sums up the losses by the late fire
and also the amount saved from in
iury. Not less than 20 nor more
than 25 per cent, of the city's wealth
was destroyed. Of the 60,000 houses
in the city, 13,500 were burned down
and while 92,000 persons have driven
from their homes, 245,000 have not
been so afflicted.
The papers take a most hopeful
view of the vast calamity, and there
can hardly bo a doubt but that for
the ensuing five years, Chicago will
be the most busy city in the Union
Its usual immense business will be
transacted there, and the work of re
building will make the city resound
with more than its accustomed in
dustry. The city will increase in
population, and suburban improve
ments will scarcely be less than if
the fire had not occurred, and the
burned portion will bo more beau
tifully and substantially improved
than before. While tho individual
losses will in many instances never
be regained, as a whole Chicago will
but temporarily suffer.
A significant hint to Poper and
ipah comes to us in The Santa Fe
Post of October 27th. Referring to
the rumor that the refractory member
of the bruited firm of " Cachise, Po
per & Pipah" was about again taking
i the warpath, Tho Post inconsiderately
3
j If ho taking the warpath
Iji gain we should be glad to donate to
his admirers, gratuitously, sufficient
space for a first rate obituary notice.
With the promiso of such a gener
ous and kind donation, Poper and
Pi pah have some inducement to die
right away, for such an opportunity
tor a good obituary may not last long.
The Post is determined to bo liberal to
Poper and Pipah even beyond their
official and earthly existence. Which
I is land of The Post.
