"The Xorlli Wind.
The Enterprise lion (or lying Enter
prise) has again been cut loose. Should
that sheet fall into the bands of a
stranger be would conclude that the
Enterprise and Campbell were the
only gentlemen in Arizona. It look9
very much as though the Enterprise
and its candidate belong to that class
of weak and narrow minded men who
seek to build themselves up by pulling
down men of real ability and merit.
From Marion's recent style of writing
we judge that the virtues possessed by
himself and his hero are so few and
dim as to rcmaia utterly invisible un
less the characters of all good men are
thoroughly blackened; hence the mud.
This may be a dignified style of polit
ical warfare, but though accused of
being a " ring and monopoly organ,"
we are quite willing that Marion
should hold a monopoly in that sort of
business. If an Indian could read
3Iarion's recent issues he would quick
ly lay it aside and exclaim "empti
ness," "the north wind." Hia tirade
and invective will only result in his
own injury. But then we do cot in
tend to intimate good advice to the
Enterprise. It is a big lion and must
growl. It is a big wind and must Mow,
and if that growl and that blow are ad
vantageous to us wc ought not to com
plain. We do not. Blow, blow ye
mighty north wind, and growl ye
mighty lion, for the day is fast ap
proaching when you will be swallowed
up in a fathomless abyss where your
blowings and groanings will not even
Ex Gov. A. P. K. Safford reached
Tucson last Monday. The stage passed
Florence about midnight Sunday hence
our reporter did not have the benefit of
all interview. We understand that the
Governor is positive the Southern Pa
cific Railroad will be built to Marico
pa "W-ells this winter, lie has watched
the railroad operations in Washington
closely during his visit east, and he
sustains such friendly relations with
the Southern Pacific officials as to af
ford him media for reliable informa
tion. Gov. Snfford has with him a
party of wealthy and influential gentle
men who are here to invest. The Gov
ernor's excellent official record is well
known, and now as a private citizen
he is doing perhaps more than any
other one man toward the development
of our Territory by encouraging im
migration and investment.
The truth has disastrous effects on
the editor of the Prcscott Enterprise.
He deals in little if any of it at any
time, and the mere reading of it, as
published by others, enrages and makes
of him a sorry sort of spectacle. He
exhausts not only his current stock of
libel and general falsehood, but prac
tically drag3 up much of his old and
worthless stock. His present sayings
show how badly he feels over late
references to him by the press. If he
is not watched, he may tear hia shirt
or do some other desperate act.
Major J. n. Loud, United States
Army, has been ordered from his pres
ent station at Yuma Depot to Fort
Union, New Mexico. We imagine
Major Lord would rather stay in Ari
zona for a time 3et. If he goes he
will notice a change of climate. Fort
Union is about 100 miles nortliest from
Santa Fe, and the thermometer fre
iquentty drops to zero in winter, which
ds somewhat fresher than " 118 degrees
in the shade." The fine level roads at
Union will be one great attraction to

Troops for Arizona.

overland road. Sunday, for Kolion, and
will then go by rail to Arizona.

Recent IIcnvyKiiliis 4nil EITcetH.
Arizona has recently been drenched
and soaked few localities failing to
get some portion. It is safe to say
that for nearly two months rain has
fallen in some parts every day partic
ularly in the mouutains south of the
Gila river and bordering on Sonora.
At no time in years has there been
greater need of rain in the Territory.
Springs and streams never before
known to fail, were only marked by
dry places prior to the late rains. Now
not only the springs and streams carry
their usual volume of water, but the
sources of them have certainly been
amply replenished. Some damage, it
is true, has been done by a few of the
sudden and heavy falls, but the bene
fits are incomparably above it Abund
ance of green grass is now up on
many millions of acres, and the whole
face of the Territory has a remarkably
green covering. Hay and gras3 will
be plentiful for a year or more to come
without more rain, and the streams
will have water for irrigation of more
agricultural land than has ever been
cultivated in Arizona. The benefits to
miners and especially prospectors is
incalculable. It is now safe to pros
pect in an- of the mountains, however
generally destitute of water, for all
lanKs ana depressions are full and
many springs and streams flowing
again. Rich grass in all our mountain
ranges, so that animals can be kept fat
m any of them. If rich ore deposits
are found, the question of permanent
W3ter will be solved without much de
lay, but prospectors arc obliged to have
water without great search or expense.
The tcmproary delay in the carriage
of mails and passengers and freights,
is generally borne with great satisfac
tion in the face of such rainy blessings
and necessities, and after all the loss
suffered in Arizona from rain and
storm this year, is nothing compared
to that of other sections of our com
mon country. Xot a life is reported

Hie robber killed at Tucson last
week was evidently one of the worst
renegades ever in Arizona. We hope
to be able to get a brief biography of
this character soon. He is from San
Francisco a Kearneyite and it is
stated he with a few othor boy-hoodlums
lived seven vears in an old hoil.
er until the aperature used as an en
trance would no longer admit them.
He claims to have robbed nine coach
es; says he killed his first man when
only fifteen years of age, and that at
one time when closely pursued by de
tectives in New Mexico, he made a
fight and killed seven, the entire par
ty. He could shoot effectively with
two revolvers simultaneously, and
equally well with either hand, lie
had a plan to rob the Depository in
iucson during business hours, by
simply presenting the clerk with a
sack and then with cocked pistols pro
duce greenbacks or death, nis accom
plice,, however, was unwilling to hold
his horse at the door. He was to rob
the stage the day following, the one on
which he was killed; then go into Tuc
son, call on Messrs. Shibcll and But-
ner, kill each in his own door and
then so to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and
rob the banks.
Those who saw him after he was
killed say he looked dangerous even
in death. One correspondent says " he
was the most desperate looking char

Conductor Sippy says that the Yu
ma Indians, who were taken out to
help repair the track washed out last
week, worked far better than the Mex
icans. These river Indians are gcod
workers. All they need is plenty to
eat and to be treated with strict justice.
We clip the above from the last Sen
tinel. The Indians of Arizona have
generally been considered as not only
useless, but a curse to the country. It
is true that until within the last few
years the wild tribes of Arizona have
always come in conflict with Ameri
can progress and enterprise in this
Territory. But now that we have
peace and our relations are so changed
for the better, is it not possible for us
to utilize the labor of these Indians to
our ctcat benefit? The Yuma and Pi
ma Indians have for many years dis
played a willingness to work. During
the last two or three years many of the
Apaches have sought employment in
the various settlements about their res
ervation. A large portion of the ado
bes used in the construction of Globe
City are the result of Apache labor.
In the construction of the extensive
ag. ncy buildings at San Carlos during
18T5 and '70, it was only necessary to
employ a mason to lay the adobes in
the wall the making, hauling and
packing of adobes and mortar all be
ing done by the Indians. In the build-
iug of towns, roads, railroads, irrigat
ing canals, and in opening new mining
camps there is much rough labor that
can be performed by Indiaus without
materially interfering with other class
es of laborers. This would inculcate
more docile spirit in the Indian and
the benefit might be made mutual and
