Indian Agent J. P. Chun lias offered to
take the protection of the Territory upon his
shoulders, in addition to the fire thousand
pets that belong to his Agency, if he can
hare two companies of Indian police. He
eridently thinks that if officers of the army
can attend to his business, he can undertake
to do military duty. He is a gallant youth
brare, energetic and charitable. The ill
success of the Governor and Captain Buford,
his right hand man, who really has all the
capacity there is, at San Carlos, to manage
Indian scouts, does not deter him from un
dertaking the tas-k of keeping the Indian:
quiet, lie proposes to hold himself rcspon
siblo for the conduct of the Indians; but
even this obligation of the youthful saint
will hardly be accepted by the people of the
I emtory. j o doubt the Governor and as
son would both indorse him. btiil, even
that will not be sufficient to give the people
confidence to allow the troops to be with
drawn, as recommended bv General Sher
man. If Clum and his backers only would
suffer in case of failure, we should like to
sec mm take charge of the whole business
but as an innocent people would be the suf
ferers we sincerely hope that the youth's en
deavors to destroy the reputation of a well
tried gentleman's past and present honorable
career will be nipped m the bud. Mr. Clum
evidentlT wants to vent his spite on General
Kautz, and it at the expense of the inhabi-
Unts of the whole Territory.
The movements of the Russians, which
were at first active and of a character to
warrant the assertion that Turkey would no?
last in the jaws of the Bear for any length of
time, seems to have becu slackened for some
cause, and the Turks have takeu couragi
from, the Russian's seeming lethargy ana
lore made a resistance that astonishes the
whole of Europe. The movements of the
Northern invaders do not indicate a deter
mination to annihilate the whole Ottoman
Empire. Were Von Moltke at the head of
the Russian army, with all its strength and
resources, combatting against a power l;u
inferior, as Turkey certainly is, he wouhi
lonij ere this have found means to have
crossed the turbulent waters ol the Danube
and driven the Turks like chaff before the
wind and entered Constantinople in trium
phal splendor. The Turks would, under a
rem like that, wludi could, and oujrht tc
have been, inaugurated, have been compelled
to take refuse iu the Balkan mountains or
surrendered. It seems that the Russiai.
Royal Arch Duke has been, like Caesar, halt
ing on the banks of a river. There may be
& good deal of military ability displayed by
the Uussian and the I urkish commanders,
but if so. they have been careful not to havi
it known. In Asia the war Mcms more liki
a country dance than a war a dance when
one partr retires and the other advances;
when the latter retires aud the other follow.
Under the above heading the Citizen pub
lishes a letter from the Department Com
mander to the Adjutant General of the
Army, asking for an officer to be stationed
at Indian agencies in his Department. From
the heading we are led to suppose that thi

the Citizen is advocating. 1 he letter speaks
tor itselt, and shows that the General knows
what he is about. An officer has been or
dered to atteud at the San Carlos Reserva

Kautz's application or not. Wo give below
our authority for stating some weeks ago
that it was at the request of the Indian
Commissioner. One thins; is evident from
the two communications, that both the Gen

asked for an officer to be stationed at .the

has had upon the Territory for years:

This town, in Mohave county, hns in and
around it some -400 people. It is pleasantly
situated on the Big Saudy. The climate is
excellent, and it is the verv heart of a rich
mineral and grazing country. Along the
river are many ranches, which will alunys
supply it with tho best of fruit and vegeta
hies, and there is pleuty of land and water
for many more farms along the valley. Tom
D'Spain showed this season a field of as fine
rain as ever grew. Clark's ranch has grown
.o perfection all the many crops aud fruits
that have been tried upon it. A tobacco
piant now stands there which has lived
trough the winter, and has grown almost
into a tree little frost there. Choice meats,
outter and vegetables arc among the luxu
ries constantly enjoyed by this mining town.
It lies or. the main route of travel through
Mohave county. The country dependent oa
it now supports many large herds of cattle
and sheep, aud has room for thousands more.

is also controlled hero. From the latter dis

For some time, a few of the aspirants to
the next Delegacy, and one or two others
who want a little money by the way of
Uealinq, met at the hall of C. 1 Cate in
Prescott, on Saturday last, for tho purpoe
oi organizing tue wcmocraiic party hi ) a-
vnpai County. Being imttjvmleMt, in every
thing, we stepped in, and as ouriormer con
victions had told us, we found tho few, sut
18 in all, assembled to do the noble work.
Jno. G. Campbell and C. F. Cate, the brains
of the meeting, did tho talking, and made
1.. A. Stevens chairman of the County Cen
tral Committee. Delegates were named
fiom different precincts throughout the
County who wore not present, and we doubt
much whether they will act or allow their
unmet to be used. We did not notice such
Democrats prwent ps Gideon Br)oke, 11. J.

the ground that they are not aspirants to

away 10 months hence. They arc modest
men. and presume- that if th j'ofJt wUh
them to stand at tho posts of honor, thev
will be generous enough toaskthem to lend
their service to the cause and become mar
tyrs for the good of tho country. Should
the Democrats, however, succeed iu effect
ing a broken organization in Yavajmi
County, will tho Democrats in the different
counties of the Territory follow? Not
much. The aim of Southern Arizona is and
has been to break the long existing harmony
of the two factions of Yavapai, thinking it
is their ouly salvation to secure the next
delegate in Congress. They will find, how.
ever, that in this they will be foiled. There
w ill be, when the proper time comes, a Peo
ple's party, composed of the Republicans '
and liberal Democrats of the Territory, who
will sweep everything before them, and sond
a Delegate to the halls of Congress by a
vote of two-third of all those entitle! to
the right of franchise, and it matters but
little to us whether that min be a Republi
can or a Democrat, so long as he has the in
terests of the whole Territory at heart.

as it is. Sherman pmiiosei to coin a silver
dollar of full value- on a relative propor
tion to gold of sixteen to one. This he pro-jmk-cs
to isue in cxcluinge for legal ten ler
notes. He expects that fifty millions of
notfs could be readily redeemed in this way
and the process of resumption greatly facili
tated. As a note would be worth a tntle
more than n dollar, and as a majority of the;
people think a roll ot notes more conven
ient than that of a jvocketful of hilvor piec
es, we suspect that Sherman is expecting a
yood deal too much. In any case the plan
is a double standard only in name, and un
der it ojornlio silver could bo brought out
in larw quantities only jn the event of a
decided depreciation Jn the value of legal

is harmless when compnrcd with the demand

voring their cause only to hctrav them.

At the Manhatten reception given in New
York City to Gov. Tildcn recently, he made
the following remarks :
"Everybody knows that after the recent
election, the men who were elected by the
people as President and Vice President of
the I'nitod States were couu'ed out, and
men who were not elected were counted in
and seated. I disclaim any thought of per
sonal wrong involved in this transaction.
.Not by any act or word of mine shall that
be dwarfed or degraded into personal griev
ance, which is in irutii ttie greatest wrong;
that has stained our national annals. To
every man of the four and a quarter mil
millions who were defrauded of the fruits of
their elective franchise, it is as great a
wrong as it is to me. and no les of every
man of the minority will the ultimate con-seipjence-extend.
Evils iu government grow
by success and by impurity. They do not
arrest their own progress; they can never
be limited except bv extreme force. If
men in possession of government can in one!
instance maintain themselves in pnwur
against an adverse decision at elections,
siich an example will be imitated. Tempta

Taking all in all, we are not a very im

some notice as a very fertile little valley.
Our ciops are not as forward as in former

ery acre of ground that is susceptible of
cultivation is teeming with corn and pota

horses and mules in the Ton to Basin, in
January last, were from the San Carlos Res
ervation. Nearly every settler in Ton to
Rasin has something to complain of, and
have only curses for Mr. Cluin's manage
ment of liis Indians. The only reasou that
their depredations are not more numerous,
and greater publicity given to the indigna
tion ot the settlers in lonto IJosm is due to
the fact that troops have succeeded so gene

Under this heading the last Citizen gives us

Captain Clay Buford. The sum and sub

pursued by the regular scouts. Went into preferable to his praise.

through information furnished by Lieu
tenant Hencly that the Iudians they were

They went over to the Agency and continued
the fact. They returned and again went
icouting, accompanied by Governor Safford
and R. N. Leatherwood, and succeeded iu
proving that all the Governor's statements ,
about the mountains being lull ot Indians
were unfounded. I hey returned, "havin
put in seventy-seven days of faithful and
earnest work, under Captain Buford, than

The whole article is nothing more than a
confession that the Governor's scouts, who
But more even than that tlcnends uoon the
j liberality of the mcrchauts themselves. This
city has no exclusive pre-emption right on
the trade of the Territory, even with the
added advantage of railroad transportation.
The following, from a recent copy of the
Tucson Star, establishes this. Speaking of
a merchant at Camp Grant the Sur says:
Mr. Stewart has been absent from the Ter
ritory somo threv or four months, has visited
tho pritieiiud cities of tho East and .savs thai
Eastern merchants are coinpclim; tor tho

There is no reason why this should be so,
at least for a great many" of the goods which
are required in Southern Arizona and So
tiora. A huge part of the latter State can
be supplied from Tucson. That place is but
;500 miles from Yuma, and by rail Yuma is
only 'J0 from this city. The nearest point
for railroad communication east of Tucson
now in the southern portion of Colorado, a
distance of at least GOO miles, while St. Louis
is SoO miles by rail therefrom. The wagon
road usually traveled is from Trinidad, Colo
lado, S35 mile-, to Tucson. Yet with an
advantage iu our favor, by railroad and
wagon road of at least 701) mila, we nro
