Less than four years ago, that old pioneer, J. W. Swilling, and a few others located in the valley- of Salt River. The worldly possessions of all who settled in the first year of this flourishing neighborhood, would not have aggregated 1,000; but as did Mosos, they' sa w spread before them a beautiful land of promise, one that once before maintained a large popu lation, as the remains of inimenso ir rigating canals, and ruins of towns and settlements bear witness. Yast improvements wero once made here by a people now unknown and of whom history seems to have made no record, and no living trace or link connects their annals with ours. Seasoning from the ruins about, it seemed that not less than 50,000 people once long in the past inhabited this valley and subsisted by agriculture. With these facts before them, these new settlers began the work of rebuilding and re- populating a valley which probably centuries ago had been abandoned tc the wild beasts and an overpowering savage toe. Notwithstanding many disadvantages, these new comers have made rapid progress and improvement even remarkable to all who pass through the valley now. It would require too much space to trace step by step the advancement oi the men who commenced here with nothing but health and determination to i suc ceed; how they have in the short space of a few years made homes that are really beautiful and will bear comparison with those in more favored and safer localities for even here the Indians have committed thefts and other depredations. Many now have lands and stock and resources ample to insure an independence for life. Here is an encouraging example of how quickly a neighborhood of com fort and plenty can be made out of nothing but well-directed industry. wherever the implacable Apache will permit. But to the improvements of year and less. A little over a year ago, the town of Phenix was projected ; now it con tains four stores owned by Mennasse & Co., Dennis & Murphy, Bichard & Co, and Smith ; two saloons by John Roach and C. A. Carpenter ; good hotel by J. J. Gardner; a brewery by M. Cavuness; a bakery by Julius Bauerlen; two blacksmith and wagon shops by Ware & Ford, and Frank Cosgrove; two carpenter shops by .Kendall and Hichard E. Pierson. The professions are rep resented by Edward Irvine and Cap tain W. A. Hancock, lawyers; the Rev. Franklin McKean, of the Meth odist persuasion, attends to the spir itual wants of the people. No physi cian has yet settled in the valley The purity ot the atmosphere seems to preclude all malarial diseases, yet so largo and growing a population re quire medical services, and doubtless good practitioner would at once find encouragement there. Two free public schools are in operation, and the spirit so far manifested, seems to assure their regular maintenance, improvements are now going on iDout as iouows: w. u. fruiter is ecting a business house ; Barnett & Block a store and ware-house ; C. H Grey a two-story building intended for a store below and a Masonic Hall above ; Geo. Betran a dancing and concert-hall; J. D. Monihau and Jacob Starrar a livery stable ; S. M. French, M. H. Hamilton, Jesus Otero and T. C. Hays are each putting up dwellings, and several others are constructing buildings. Three miles from Phenix is Mill City, where W. B. Helliners & Co. have a two-story flouring mill and one of the largest store houses in the Territory. Six miles above, C. T. Hayden has a store, and ferry, and contemplates the early erection of a flouring mill. It is estimated that this year's crop covers 53,500 acres of barley and 2,000 of wheat. The crops never promised better at this season. New irrigating ditches are constantly being made, and a great many miles of these artifi cial streams have been completed. It the custom to sharpen cottonwood willow branches or limbs and drive them down along these ditches and also along the streets and road sides. They at once take root and soon be come thrifty. Thus the valley now, viewed at a distance, has the ap pearance of an immense grove. Every " .r , J ""- -"" bun mm ciimate are unsurpassed ior the growing of grapes. It is really astonishing to think this valley was apparently a barren waste four years ago, and how quickly it nas ueeu maae more attractive tnan will be understood by this description MORE HEVItTRY. It will be remembered by close ob servers of measures proposed at one time and another to punish or prevent the 'savages from killing off and other wise damaging the advance civilizers of this continent, that n. nrfispnt Senator, Tipton, of Nebraska, some years ago proposed in Com?ress the payment of a reward for Indian scalps. It was plainly to bo that under such a system the wrong Indians would be scalped as a rule, and the scheme properly failed. At the present session of Congress, Mr Taffe, of Nebraska, has proposed to make all Indians citizens voters, too It is well understood that this Taffe proposition is not so much in the in terest of the Indian or the frontier settler as that of energetic corpora tions. Referring to the Tipton and Taffo schemes, The Bulletin of San Francisco, a paper always independent and an earnest advocate of human rights, closes its observations in these emphatic words : Tipton's proposition was the man- ltestationof barbarism, cruel and in human; Taffe's that of a sickly. mawkish sentimentalism and spurious humamtarianism quite as bad in its prospective operation, and more dan gerous because more likely to become popular in the communites far remote from the scenes of Indian warfare, where the true character of the In dian is wholly misunderstood. Hon. Judge Titus, "of Arizona, favored our sanctum last week with a call. Tho health of the Judge re quired rest and a change of climate, and ho is on his way east to the city ot Philadelphia to visit his friends. Judge Titus has been on the western frontier many years, and we have met no person who has" a more just appre ciation of the duties and oblio-iitinns of tho Government toward the settlers on the extreme border than he. The Indian question has been before him in diiierent forms m his judicial capacity, and he has fully studied it in all its bearings. We not only hope that the Judge may return with established health, but that while east the Indian Department may seek his advice and the benefit of his experience in the conduct Ot our Indian aftairs.
