J. E. Roberts, Indian tigent for the
White mountain Apaches, arrived here
with his wife last Sunday. Mr. Roberts
came here on business connected with his
agency. He has proved himself an earn
est, industrious, and faithful agent, and
while he has done all he could to aid the
Apaches and make them comfortable and
contented he has not attempted to de
fend tnem in tne commission of crimes.
On the contrary, he has used his best ef
forts to have them punished for wrong-doing.
It is probable that t he India us under
his charge have made tarther advances in
agricultural pursuits than any other Apa
ches in the Territory. In the manage
ment of these Apaches he has been ably
assisted by Maj. Randall, and both have
had the good sense and Judgment to work
in harmony together.
We paid a visit this week to the grain
fields in the Santa Cruz valley and as the
mode of harvesting differs somewhat
from the way they harvest in Illinois, we
will state that first the grain is cut with
sickles, then- a rope is attached to a raw
hide and tied to the horn of a saddle; the
horse then is ridden through the field and
the grain is piled on this raw hide and
dragged to some central place in the field.
Here it is heaped up and horses are made
to travel in a circle around the main pile
until the grain 1 threshed. After this the
chaff and grain are thrown into the air
until the chaff is separated from the grain.
This mode of harvesting and threshing
grain may seem a elow process to our
western farmers, but it has one virtue; it
is t he same way it was done 1800 years ago,
and with those who do not believe in ad
vancement, that is a sufficient reason why
It should be done so now.

The Killing of M. II. DuffieldHIs
Last Sunday evening Joseph Ollger ar
rived in Tucson and reported that Milton
B. Duffle Id had been shot and killed on
the San Pedro by a man named Holmes,
on Friday, June 5.
The following is the statement made by
Oliger: He says that he was employed by
Duffield to go with him to the Bronco
mine, located about thirty miles above
the crossing on the San Pedro, and that
they arrived at a house near the mine
.'.bout 10 o'clock p. m., and unsaddled
their horses. No one being at the house
at the time Duffield told himto go to the
mine and inform whoever was there that
he was at the house. On arriving at the
mine he found a man named Holmes and
two Mexicans and informed them of Duf
fleld's presence as requested. Thereupon
Holmes and the two Mexicans each took
their guns and started with him for the
house. Holmes went into the house and
set his gun down, but presently Duffield
came towards the house and Holmes Im
mediately seized his gun and told Duffield
he understood that he had come to drive
them off the mine and to stop and leave
the place. Duffield continued to advance
and held up bis hands when Holmes fired
the contents of a double-barrelled 6hot
gun at him, being not over thirty steps dis
tant at the time. J Several of the shots pen
etrated Duflicld's head and he settled down
on his hands and one knee and asked for
water; he made several efforts to rise but
could not; he did not speak after asking
for water and expired in about fifteen min
uten after he was shot.. Hoiraes slates
that at the time Duffield was shot he was
unarmed, having left his arras at a tree
near the house where they had camped.
The statement of Holmes does not vary
materially from the above. Holmes says
that alter arriving at the house witli Oli
ger he heard someone hallo on the out
side, that he seized his gun and on going
to the -door saw Duffield standing behind a
tree not far from the house; he then spoke
to DulhelL.a.nd told him that he under
stoou he-iutenued to kill anyone he found
on the nime, when Duffield, without say
ing a word, at once advanced swinging
bis hat in front of him. Holmes at once
drew his gun and told him to keep away,
and twice ordered hiin to slop, but Duffield
increased his pace, and when within four
or live yards ot him he shot. Holmes says
thai he fully believed Duffield was armed,
and tiiat he did not shoot until he was
comix;! led to. for in an instant more Duf
field could have seized his gun
As boon as Justice Osboru was informed
of the homicide he immediately issued a
warrant for the arrest of Holmes, and Dep
uty Sheriff Van Alstiue left on Monday
last to make t he arrest.
M. B. Duffield was born in Wheeling.
Viiginia, in 1810, and was therefore 64 years
of age. We understand that he was for a
lime engaged iu mercantile business in
his native city, and from there went to
Texas where he remaiued until 1819, when
he came to California. He was appointed
U. t. Marshal for Arizona in 18W, and
came here in 1864. He was in constant
turmoil during tne time he held the office.
and was removed in 1865. He was appoint
ed posial agent for Arizona, Coloiauo and
New Mexico in I860, aud again came to the
Territory to take cnarge ol said office; but
as soon as h entered the Territory he
commenced- a war upon every one who
did not ihiuk, uct and do as he desired.
A a con.sequence complaints went on to

was removed iroin the position in less than

The Tucson public schools closed 3es
terday for the Summer vacation. Gov.
Safford, Judge Osborn, Trustees Davis and
Hughes and Mr. Fish visited the schools
anu witnessed the examinations. Tlie
boys school is in charge of Miss Packer
and the girls school has been taught by
Miss Bolton. The schools have been open
eight months, and the progress the pupils
have made is creditable to both teachers
and pupils. Very few of the scholars could
read or speak English at the commence
ment, now most ot them can read, spell
and write quite well, and many have
made good progress in arithmetic and
geography. The people of Tucson should
feel proud of their public schools, and al
ready tne gooa innuence is mannesi. noys
who have learned toread, write and speak
English, if worthy, can readily get em
