The Christian World is published at Cincinnati, Ohio, iu the interest of the Dutch Reformed Church, which or ganization has the selection of Indian Agents for Arizona. Wo are informed that paper is edited by as truly good men as human creatures can be; therefore we call its attention to the following taken from the Washington Kepublirun's report of a meeting of ; tnat exalted liody known as peace I commissioners convened in parlor lo0, j Arlington Houe, on January 15. ' Here is the matter : Kpv. Dr. Ferris, f the Dutch Reformed ' church, said tbev hj.V'. bad five agencies, all in Arizona. Ihu i'iinoa hud suffered considerably from depredations upon them by tho whites, their horse? having been stolen and they driven from their reserva tion over towards the Salt River to raise their crops for sustenance. This tribe is running down, and would like to bo transferred to the Indian Terri tory, being wiling to go at any time. The Indians in the Colorado river agency have uegun to earn their own support, and arc in a fair way to bo self-sustaining. He said that there was a bean nf ilmtn ft 'i jtti-. . ; ri . tr :'- h - 1 1: '. v ihc l-i.- , ''.(Mii.'.'jOn ti i-e lii.n 'i ,';l!(',"iiij,(,i ui'.r :I (i.i'pi nit! n f-r r. ! pi'.iiiH.-I ihu.! liiis ii ifjai statements on his own motion knowledge; but that he made them seems true and that they are essen tially false is equally true. If the agents in charge gave such informa tion, they should at once be discharged; and it is due to the reverend man who utterred them so publicly no less than to this people that ho give tbr T-ailic the source of his information. A few facts are in order here : The Pimas huve n't suff-rcd "consider ably" noi even a little or any "from depredations by the whites." Their horses have not been stolen bv thet...v4. , ... i t,.. whites, but have been time after time by the Apaches which the reverend man is hardly excusable for not knowing and so declaring. The Pi mas have never been driven from their reservation to Salt Eiver or any where else ; but have continuously re sided upon it (except a few roving zt.: yho ro ! S-Ji T?i'-- fr. Tilnnder niid for otL 'r vile purpof-v aiid tiierc ! gro.v their c.rop. On voutexvy, j the Pimas have often stolen ana 1-ulie. j stock for the white-;, but n-- tli. no stain from killing the whites and uti ' zens, no i-. filiation v.-.s i-v ; .ri.i- : they have oftentimes destroyed grow ing crops of citizens in the settlements along tho Salt and Gila rivers, and were never punished in any manner therefor by whites, citizens or gov ernment. Another surprise in this connection i that r-jcra! O. O Suwm.iI hu;d these remarks ;ifier theiu., lose and said he listened to all with much in terest but without in the least correct ing the statements he must have known to be false, for on the Kth of October, lrs"2. the Pimas made one of their raids, and a very destructive one, too, through the growing crops about Florence. Jt so occurred that one or two days thereafter, Gen. Howard, Hon. E. C. McCormick and Super intendent Dr. Eendell met at the Pima agency, and there citizens Brady, Thompson and others appealed to them for protection from tho Pimas. luem 101 All vh..-., , cttrnei!t request ot local ao-en1- Stout I to General Crook to stali n a c. -mnanv xii . 1 ..t. j. .uiun;i; m lun-ieqiieiiee j 01 rinia depredations. Th. '.gencv 1 records, the milit lepartmenf rec- ' ords, the officers and -itiz-ns named, are evidences of the truth of these statements. The published report of agent Stout for 1871 puts especial stress upon tho evil of the Pimas raiding, and doing it insolently, too, upon the adjacent settlements, hence the reverend gentleman is not ato gether excusable for his notoriously false statements. See pages 354 hnd 355 of the Commissioner's anuuallre- port for 1871, for abundant proof! of our assertions As to the Punas being willing to 50 to Indian Territory, is a doubt: ul statement but of insignificant, i u- TjoiMiice. Ir ' his connection, "tte mfj.'TJit'fi, by pretty g ood authority . thai ci tew arc willing to go and lo at the country beyond that no dec ion or desire is understood to exist. As to Gen. Howard averting " Indian war," there is no grain truth in that, for during ten or m years prior to the General's advenn in Arizona and' during both his vjsits here, an Indian war was going on, citizens were constantly being nnxxr dered and robbed beyond reliable es timate, and the press of the nation reenrrlpd these facts with rain and U 1. showered the ''heap of abuse bei on General Howard's tif 't-'h'g lead V th- Arizona paper".' the stater lent false as the assr :d eanse ft r it. ard iity mp- !u ' Srhfc place. C aeral Hov ,ao iiicu with the utmost cordi and given almost an .enthusiastic port by the Arizona people and papers As an honest, fearless advocate of the rights of Tndians as well as zens, the editor and proprietor of paper criticised, verbally and fai Cltl this to face, General Howard ten fold harpher than we ever did in The ClTi: .tTid thu lat utf laiie. of the Gen to us were thfe of approval kindly offers of serice shoulr iieeil .tny. Other papers havr recently but motly since the meeting wieh provokes these remarks, been some- , v iiiii i:vi;n? 111 t. Lit. 11 icn,it:uLT:a iu tiii General but in no instance because he averted an Indian war. ' We are assured by truthful men of ten year's observation that there is hardly a shade of truth in the state ments regarding the Colorado Eiver Indians. The flippant way the reverend Ferris re ferred to ten (o twenty mil lion-, of dollars, shows how careless in- wa- iii hi" speech, and is a good index to why it was substantially the ; ver--r ' i' ;inrh. ' kSved to the gov mnjfio. L-t weui 10,000,000 and s 'o,()U(!, dUU " i.- a very wide range in saving and of accuracy. Eeading such statements made by nearly every meeting of these com missioners, tends to sour really good men on all reformers who work in the much abused but good name of Christianity. If The Christian "World. waat' to help the cause ot Lrutl , ;i -, we are inclined to think it does, it w ill I ifcral 1 to tn, print this article entire; and if it is ervation at Camp Mojave, Arizona, j prudent, it will engage in no con- j under General Orders No 74, Novem ! trovers v over the assertions we make . ber '1, lo'J. wirnout --aiHlnl :etLr 1 ce io the n en and authorities . e cite witu regard to the Pimos ; and the files of Arizona papers for the "abuse showered on General Howard"; and tho current history of Arizona for over ten years regarding the aversion of an Indian war in 1872 by the General's labors.
